A certain man of vast estate,
And generous mind withal,
So freely spent upon his friends,
He soon had none at all.
His fickle friends discovered this,
.And then their worth they showed,
They left himI , nor e'Pa-paid the debt
Of gratitude they owed.
Ere long the man got richer again
Much richer than before, -
And those who then received so much,
Came now-expecting more.
The man had by. this time, however,
A lesson great been taught;
And straight he sent them all away,
With the large sum of-naught.
Friends; be had learned, do round us
When we are rich and great;
But when want comes and troubles
They leave us to our fate.
And he had learned what oft is seen
When friends are in request,
That those of .whom we think the least
Turn out to be the best.

A colored man of sixty-four years
came to me with a sore heart. The
"Old Woman" was his torment.
His rheumatism was awful, but not
a "smudgin" of liniment would she
rub on it. He had stood it as
long as he could, and now he was
determined to bring her down. He
had heard of di.orces, and would
have one if it cost five dollars.
Upon inquiry I found that he

In the second place the doctor had
told him that salt pork was poison
to his joints, and that he must eat
fresh meat, but she 'would get noth.

the next place he had a perfect
cure for- his rheumatism, but she
would not rub it onr. Then what
right had -a wife anyway to dictate
to her husband-the head of the
house. This last he repeated so
often, it was clearly a case of
wounded dignity.
I advised that he tried once
more to fetch her to terms. "Would
you not like to bring her to her
knees ?" I asked.
"You bet, Boss; but how can I

I waited for MatiVs return witi
much curiosity., When he came
again, a few, days later, I was
struck with his puzzled and, em
barrassed manner. He was almos
disinclined to conversation, whici
was in strong contrast with his
volubility in our previous interview.
I saw the situation, and simpl3
'said to him, after learning that he
had kept his pr6mise:

Poor Matt seemed less talkative
than in our previous interviews

Yes, I knew Juan. He, wasa

Rincon Point, in 1846. He sup
plied the whalers and hide-droghers
with fresh beef. When Marshall
turned the world askew by unearth
ing that Atalismanic nugget at Sut.
ter's Mill, Juan sold out-and joined
the rush northward. He was lucky
at the start, if unlucky at the
end. The first pick he sank brought
up one the biggest specimens
struck in California. Eight -ou
sand dollars was offered for -it right
away,' but Juan wouldn't sell. He
thought he could make more by
putting it up at a raffle. Eight
thousand shares at $10 a share was
the order. The enterprise was suc

get and take shares in the lottery.
Juan was in high feather. He was
the big pin of the occasion and,
Castilian-like, put on a mint of
frills. He was a tall, lank man,
saturnine in the countenance, with
a retreating jaw -and a bhooni h
forehead. He wore a red bandana
round his head and carried a-long
novaja (knife) in his sash. He al
ways wore the--costime of-a yaquero
and, judging from his looks, was
a tough customer;yet a more harm
less fellow never breathed. He
was fond of money though, and
would sooner lose one ounce of
blood thai a dollar anyrday. To
guard the nugget he employed eight
of his countrymen. Four of these
were armed with pistols and mach
etes. They were a surly-looking
gang, and seemed- able to whip
anything - of their size; but when it
came to the scratch were com
pletely subdued -by the "malditos
The, nugget was placed under a
glass case on the center of a table
in the Modo Verde saloon, where a
yellow-faced girl from Sonora took
the names of subscribers. Among
those who came to see the nugget
was "Jimmy-from-town," one of the
noted desperadoes of that day, and
as smart a rogue as ever went un
hanged, He was attended by two
of his principal pals-Joe Bell and
Micky Free. After taking in the
situation Jimmy concluded the
the plant could be raised, and so
informed his lieutenants. "Too
risky," said Joe, "these greasers are
well armed, have grit, and' will
make a fight."
"Very likely," answered Jimmy,
"but we can double haul 'cm. You'll
get the chunk if you do what I
"Go ahead," said Micky.
"Beat up all the boys you can
and get me a 'broncho.' I'll show
you how to corral the nugget. See
if you can't lift me before to-mor
row night."
Jimmy's two gillies followed his
directions. Twenty hard nuts re
ported for duty within forty-eight
hours. The 'broncho' was also on
hand, paid for with the money of a
colored man, whom Micky knocked
on the head. The animal was im
mediately placed in training.
Jimmy had been a circus rider,
and was asharpbinhorse flesh. He
soon had the 'broncho" ready for

Jimmy struck him with a sandelub,
which laid him senseless. At the
same time he backed the animal
against the table and shouted:
"Hey Rube !"
"Hey Rube" is the circusman's
battle-cry, and was the signal for
Jimmy's pals to -look out for the
nugget. As they re-echoed the
cry Jimmy dug the spirs into the
'broncho.' It kicked. Over went
the table; smash went 'he glass case,
and away went the nugget twenty
feet from where it' laid. As it
there wasa wild rush for its pos
session. The Mexicans,. led by
Juan, who recovered from thelow,
made desperate exertions to -re
tain the precious secimen, but
were quickly overcome by the
fiercer efforts and keener activity
of the white-faced rogues. It was
Gringo against Greaser, and Grin
go won. Micky Free finally grabbed
the nugget and passed it to Jimmy,
who dexterously placed it in a
leather bag swung from his pummel.
He then urged his 'broncho' through
the crowd, riding over all in his
way, and, reaching the street, gal
loped at full speed for a rendezvous
in the mountains. As he rode off
the Mexicans gave him - a salute
from their pepper-trees one ball

Mr. Richard A. Pro'tor does not
think that the abnormal sunsets in
various parts of the werld can be
reasonably attributed tothevolcsnic
eruptions. near the Sunda Straits.
His objections are that.the theory
requires; first that much morevol
canic dust and vapor shoull have
been expelled in order to sprea4 so
widely than was apparently thrown
into the upper atmosphere ; and
secorgly, that to reach Trinidad,
Panama 'and Yokohama, the ex
pelled matter should have travelled
from sixty-five to seventy-five miles
an hour, whereas it went in -leisure
ly fashion to Ceylon and India
He considers the theory of volcanic
dust untenable, but has no better
hypothesis to propose. Professor
Plazzi Smith ascribes the pheno
mena meteoric dust, thereby con..
firming the judgment of prominent
American scientists. Baron Nor
denskjold, during the voyage of the
Vega, found traces of what he
termed cosmic dust. under condi
tions apparently precluding the as
sumption that it was of terrestrial
origin- and during his recent ex
plorations in Greenland he obtained'
corroborative evidence. The set
tling of coarser grains of meteoric
dust upon the ice-floes in.mid-ocean
implies the occasional presence of
finer particles in the upper' atmos
phere where they have been detaclhed
from meteoric bodies by friction.
If the world happened to be-spin-.
ning through a meteoric belt of
space, the dust would be 'sprinkled
over the atmospheric envelope and
any phenomena of light caused-by
its presence would be witnessed in
all countrie-s. This explanation
certainly does not make any larger
demand upon human credulity than
the volcanic dust theory, and it is
receiving the sanction of high scien
tific authority.
