"An Epedition from the United Ofts"
.WL Visit the Island and Make a
Extended Search for the A
The yacht Hayseed, under the com
rmand of Capt. August Gisler, recently
sailed from Stockton, bound for Cocos
island, four hundred miles southwest of
Panama. The object of Capt. Oisler's
visit to the distant isle is to endeavor to
discover the spot where gold and silver
coins, plate and jewelry to the alleged
value of sixty million dollars were
buried by pirates nearly seventy years
Capt. Oisler, says the San Prancisbo
Chronicle, expects to reach his destina
tion after thirty-two days' sailing. The
length of his stay at the island will de
pend upon the work undertaken. The
island will first be surveyed under the
direction of Capt. Gisler, who owns con
Miderable property on the place, The
buried treasure will be hunted for on a
secret plan in the captain's possession.
Capt. Gisler spent four years on the
island, and during tat time made a
vigorous search for the gold. lie is con
fidont of success, and is deterinined to
keep up his search. ris will be his
fourth trip to the island. fle left there
in May, 1890. On that visitsho and three
companies subsisted for five mionths on
wild hogs, .ish and sea birds while
awaiting the vessel aent to Valparaiso
for supplies. ' %
The captain Imade a contract with"the
Costa Rica governament to populate the
barrea island within five years, and he
proposes to do this work in connection
with Lhe search for the hidden wealth.
A month ago lie went to Stockton to
imeet A. 0. Viertong, who claims to
have a "gold illdietor," by which the
Preselnce of the buried gold can be dis
covered. ('apt. Gisler looked upon the
"indicator" favorably, and made an
agreeient uider which Viertong will
Uccomipany himll to Cocos island.
-Cap)t. Gisler will have with hini
Joseph- teine, a blacksmith; John
liamlin, an Englishman, and an old
sailor, who will he the mate of the
Hayseed; August Weiste, the cook, and
Andrew dohnson, an able seaman. These
men, with the exception of Reine, have
accoipanied ('apt. Gisler to Cocos
island on several previous trips, and
they know what to expect on such an
expeditioin. Tly believe they will be
successful, ,and are willing to make the
trip without a dollar of wages and
take 4an1es on unearthing the gold.
The cook, Weviste, is so certain of suc
vess ihat lie cam1lie0 a rouinabout way

organzing a co,m1pany, and to reach

Tlhe island is about four miles across

"Imagine that they can control the di

shaving. That is absurd. If you will
take a microscope and examine the face
of a baby a week old you will see that
the cheeks and chin are covered with
very fine soft hairs, invisible to the a
naked eye. The direction in which
they turn will never be changed. If
the child is a male those hairs will con
stitute the beard when it grows to be a t

will make the down which the Ioe-ts

SA N FuR ANCIS(;O, Jan. 13.- A Can ton '.
correspondenit sends thiA ac':ount of ai'
terrible disaster in a country town a bout
fifty miles from Canton, which occuired
early last month, and resulted in the
loss of nearly 2,000 lives. A band of
robbers made a raid on the village of
Kal-in-shir-bing dilstrict. T1hey fIrst
levied a tri bute of several thousand taels
on priest of the temple. The latter had
just received large offerings from the
people, who were having a holiday with
a dramatic entertainment under a big
shed temporarilly erected in front of
the temple. The angry robbers applied
torches to this shed, and the people in
panic rushed into the temple for refumge.
The main entrance of the temple, which
was of wood, caught fIre from the heat
of the burning shed, and over 1,400 men,
wonien and children were either burn
ed, smothered or trampled under feet.
Most of the fatalities resulted from suf
focation, as a strong wind blew the
smoak into tbe temple. At the time of*
this writing, the rolls of missing num
bered 1,940, and it may be that some of
thes wore burned beyond recognition.

i a totally unexpected manner. Thi
lopulists made a bold bludl to excludt

roposition, which would mean the sur
ander of the House to the enemy, ani
ie result is that the two houses are or.
anized and are in full blast side by sidf
