A MADMAN'S SEARCH.
BY CHARLES B. LEWIS.
We were lying at Singapore in the
biig Albatross, waiting to take on a
few tons of freight for Liverpool,
when an American named James
Granger came aboard. He was a
man in the prime of life, tall, stout
and handsome, and he had a person
al magnetism beyond any man I
ever mei His business was with the
cajptain at first, and he had a singu
lar story to tell.
He was a New York shipowner,
he said, and had taken a trip to
China and Japan in one of his own
vessels?a brig called the Red King
?for the benefit of his health. Sire
had been cast away eeveral months
before in the China sea, and all
hands lost save himself. He man
aged to reach a small island, and
after two weeks was taken off by a
native craft and transferred to an
A part of the island was sterile aad
rocky, and amid the rooks he ono
day found a robber's cave. There
were, he contended, thousands of
' yards of silk and other valuable fab
rics, boxes of pearls, chests of jew
elry and kegs of coin. He had count
ed out $200,000 in gold without
counting it all, and he roughly esti
mated his find to be worth $1,000,
He was sure that the stuff had
been hidden away for long years,
and he discovered that portions had
been taken from vessels which had
mysteriously disappeared in the
China sea years before. It was the
cave of a band of Chinese pirates,
and the entire band had been lost or
captured at sea. He had with him
two pearls, a diamond ring and sev
eral gold coins as proof of his state
What Granger wanted was to char
ter a ship to fetch away the treas
ure, ard he had boarded us because
he had heard that we were to dis
charge cargo at Singapore and re- j
load for Bombay. He talked with
our captain for two hours, and then
the chief mate was called into the
The story was all gone over again,
and theft I was called down. No
man could tell a more plausible
6tory, nor could any one have de- i
manded better proofs. The only
weak point was that he was no mar- j
iner and could not locate his island? :
that is, we knew there was no such
island as he described within 200
miles of the spot where he insisted
it was. *,
Had our captain been free to char
ter I think he would have taken
chances. Had the chief officer not (
been impatient to get home and
marry and take command of a ship .
I am sure he would have been ready :
to sail a craft to the island. As nei- j
ther would go, Granger turned to
me. If our captain would release
me, I was free, to go, and as I under
stood navigation he need have no ,
f?ar that I would hit the spot aimed
Sailors hear a good many yarns
about buried treasure and pirates'
caves, and I was not ready to give an ,
answer offhand. I agreed to let ,
Granger have my decision next day j
and be went away after swearing us (
all to silence. Then the three of us
went over his story in detail to try j
and satisfy ourselves. The result
was that the captain said :
"Well, it is the straightest story I
ever heard from a castawaj*, and if ,
you want to go with him I'll release
you. If you get the treasure, you
can quit the sea; if not, you will not
have lost so very much." j
Next day I gave Granger my de- !
cision and went ashore with him. I
found that he had plenty of money :
and was in good standing with busi- ;
ness men. He went to more pains
than I demanded to prove his iden
tity, and he insisted ou a written ,
contract that I was to have a gener- j
ous share of the treasure. In the
course of a week I got hold of a
schooner which was for charter and
ten days later had fitted her out for
the voyage. I saw Mr. Granger two
or three times a day during this time
and grew to respect him very umcb.
He seemed to me to be a very thor
ough business man and was well
spoken of by a la It was given out
that our object was to search for
other survivors who might have es
caped, and as there happened to be
.a. surplus of seamen at Singapore
just then I had no tremble in secur
ing a crew of first class men?all .
We cleared for a port in Japan
and got away with a fair wind, and
during the two weeks it took us to
work up to the locality of Granger's
island all went well with us. He had 1
located the Island as being about ?0
mil?*s to tbtt <*tst of the island of
My chart showed u clear sea for
300 miles in every direction, but in
those days uncharted islands were
heing reported every month and it
wu* possible that the bit <>1' land <n;
V/IflCh he hud spent ;i month had
been missed in the surveys I was
not at all disappointed, however,
when we failed to find it.
We overhauled junk after junk to
De toJcl that no such island naa ever
been heard of, and when at last I
sat down with Mr. Granger to learn
what we should do it struck mo for
the first time that there was some
thing queer about him. He did not
betray the disappointment one
would have expected, and I thought
he glanced at m 3 in a furtive, cun
ning way. I ask 3d him to go over
his story again, and to my astonish
ment he doubled on himself. He had
said in the first place that his brig
was bound to Japan when lost.
He now declared that she was
homeward bound. He got his days ,
and dates mixed ap, and if I hadn't
concluded that he was under the in
fluence of liquor I should havo
thought him crazy As near as I j
could figure out from the statements j
ho made the Red King was between j
the capes of Siam and the Philippine !
islands when caught in the typhoon
and driven to the eastward. The
Philippines are counted by the hun
dred, large and small, and it would
not have been at all strange had he
landed on one of the westernmost.
He agreed with me in my deduc
tions, and the schooner was put
about and ran to the south for three
When we finally got among tho
islands, the difficulty was in locat
ing the right one. Granger had been
swept ashore at night. He had land
ed on one side of the island and been
taken off on another. He claimed to
remember certair. landmarks, how
ever, and for ten days we threaded
our way among the islands, and he
took a long a:-?.d close look at each
one. His queer demeanor passed
away soon after our talk, and I
found myself fully believing in him
again. No man could havo heard
his story and doubted it. He went
into each minute particular, and you
felt certain be had passed through
all he claimed, and back of all were
the souvenirs b > had brought away
with him. It might have been on
the twelfth day of our search that
we came to his island; and the find
ing of it gave me a queer feeling.
There were no such landmarks as he
described, ncr was the lay of the
ground according to his description.
It was a totally different island in
size and appearance, but he stoutly
insisted that it was the ono he had
come in search of.
We carried deep water to within
half a mile of the beach, and then
the schooner was anchored and we
pulled ashore in the yawl. This was
just after noon on a certain Wednes
day. There would be plenty of timo
to overhaul the island and get the
more valuable stuff aboard before
dark. Tho schooner was snugged
down and three men left aboard,
and it was only when the boat was I
ready to set us ashore that I told the
crew the nature of our errand.
We had come to carry away a |
great treasure, instead of looking
for castaway sailors, and Mr. Gran
ger authorized me to say that each
man might look for a handsome
present in gold coin when the plun
der was safe aboard. This put ev
erybody in good spirits, and Gran
ger's demeanor was such that I had
no doubt of beholding and handling
those boxes and kegs within an hour.
We landed on a sandy beach, and
Granger headed into the forest with
out hesitation. After walking for
half an hour he began to recognize
certain landmarks and said the j
treasure was not far off. Just at J
that moment we entered a woll beat- j
en path and saw two or three goats, j
He had never said a word about j
there being gaits on the island, but j
I did not give it more than a passing
wonder. He cried out that some
thing had worked into his shoe and
for us to keep right on till we reach- :
ed the rocks, and as he sat down and
began unlacing his shoe we went ;
ahead along the path. .
We found no rock. We found oth- j
er paths and saw other goats, and by ;
and by we had crossed the little is- ;
land and stood on tho beach. Gran- j
ger had not yet joined us, and after j
waiting 15 minutes I sent ono of the !
men back. He had not only gone tu :
the spot where we left the men sit- i
ting, but as far as the beach, and lie '
reported the yawl gone. All my sus
picions were now aroused, and the
crowd of us started into a run as we !
headed Lack. We reached the beach i
to find the yawl gone, but next mo- j
ment we sighted lier alongside the
As we were about to hail the crafi j
we saw Grtinger and tho two men
descend into the boat and shove off !
for the beach. His going aboard \
ahm.; was n matter to wonder over, j
but I was thinking he might have a ;
plausible explanation when the boat
touched at a wooded point running i
out below us :md the two men got :
out. We could plainly see and hear ;
that they werf forced out at the !
muzzle of a revolver. As soon as j
they were clear of the boat Granger I
threw an oar over and began scull- !
ing her back to the schooner, and i
all our shouts brought no response j
from him. >?n man but a sailor j
could have used that sculling our a* !
lie did, and one and all remarked it. I
What sort of a trick was he play- i
ing us: Each man asked this ques- I
ion of another, but no ?nie could ,
answer. When he had returned to j
the schooner alone, his pretense was !
that he had forgotten something, '<
but no sooner hud hi* reaehed the
deck than he ordered the men into
the boat. As lie was armed and look
ed dangerous, they did in>t think it

ing an hour did not brii g any sal is
faction. The man had firearms, and
we haa only our Knives, it woma
have been no trick at all to swim off
to the schooner but for the sharks.
Look where you would, you could
see their dorsal tins cutting the wa
ter, and it would have been rank
folly to swim 30 f Get from the beach.
After awhile we retired from the
beach and took a tramp over the is
We found fresh water and fruits,
but no signs that the place had ever
been inhabited by man. The goats
numbered fully 200, and the original
pair had probably been landed by
some whaler or had floated ashore
from some wreck. As the weather
was warm we were not so badly off,
but of course we were anxious about
Granger was certainly insane. He
could not run away with the schoon
er, but he might sink her at her
moorings or set her on fire. He re
fused to show himself or answer our
hails, and when night came I was
inclined to believe that he might
have committed suicide.
Wo made our beds on the grass
that night and slept soundly enough,
and when morning came and Gran
ger still refused to answer our hails
we began the work of building a
raft to float us to the schooner. This
work was carried on around the
point; where ho had landed the men,
and by noon we had knocked to
gether a structure which would float
at least four of us.
If this raft were dragged around
the point, the tide would set it down
on the schooner, but we had to wait
until 10 o'clock at night to get both
darkness and tide in our favor.
Then I selected three men to accom
pany me and started off. If Granger
were on the watch, we were sure
to meat with a warm reception, but
crouching low on the ratt we drift
ed down on the schooner's broadsido
and were not challenged. Five min
utes after getting aboard wo found
him hanging by the neck in the
cabin, and the .state of the body
proved he had been dead for hours.
Who was Granger? I discovered
that he was not the New York ship
owner of that name. He had been
cast on an island, but the Red King
was not wrecked. He had proofs
with him in the shape of pearls and
coins, but where was the island? He
had paid a round price to charter
the vessel, but seemed to have no
other object in view than to trick j
us. He had over $5,000 in cash
among his effects, and although it
was turned over to the authorities
at Cape Town they havo never
found an heir to it. We believed he
had been a sea captain, but the lists
showed no such man for years past.
No man could say ho was insane,
but why did he commit suicidei A
score of other questions might be
asked, but they would throw no
light on the mystery. I sailed the
schooner back to the cape and made
a report of the case, and though 20
years have passed away the real
identity of tho man has not been es
tablished or his singular conduct ac
counted for. That ho was an Ameri
can X am sure, and he seemed to
know all about New York, but not
one cf the advertisements regarding
him in the American papers ever
brought a reply. He simply came
and went and left a mystery behind j
Tho Origin of Tallyho.
As quaint a mixture of words and
interjeetivinal cries as I have met |
with is in an old French cyclopedia
of li&i, which gives a minute de
scription of tho hunter's craft and
prescribes exactly what is to be
cried to The hounds under all possi
ble contingencies of the chase. If
the creatures understand grammar
and syntax, the language could not
be more accurately arranged for
their ears. .Sometimes we have
what seem pure interjcctional cries.
Thus, to encourage the hounds to
work the huntsman is to call to !
them, "Ha halle, halle, halle!" j
while to bring them up before they I
*re uncoupled it is prescribed that j
he shall call "Hau, hau!"' or "Hau,
tahaut!" and when they are uncoil
pled he is to change his cry to
"Haul la y la la y la tuyau !" a call

WORKING PLACER MINES.
; There Are Three Methods In Use?Pan
ning, Rocking and Sluicing.
There are three ways of working
placer ground, as the gravel beds or
valley bottoms are called. They aro
panning, rocking and sluicing,
j A pan is a broad, shallow dieh of
iron or copper. The miner throws
in a shovelful of sand and gravel,
fills the pan with water and then
with a twisting sifting motion works
whatever gold may be therein down
to the bottom of the pan, where it
tends naturally on account of its
As he sifts the miner tips the pan
gradually and works off the gravai
and sand until he sees what is caught
in the lower edge of the pan. The
pan is a most essential part of the
prospector's outfit. It gives him his
clew, and it is .easy to pack.
A rocker is quite too large to be
paoked about when prospecting. It
is a labor saving improvement on tho
pan, with greater capacity and can
be worked with an easier motion. It
is a box 3 feet long and 2 feet, wide,
made in two parts. The top part is
shallow, with a heavy iron bottom
full of holes a quarter of an inch in
Beneath this in the lower half of
the box is a heavy cloth set in an in
clined plane, sloping eight inches in
the length of the box, or about three
inohe8 to the foot. Sometimes there
is a series of these inclined planes,
one below the other, sloping in op
posite directions. The whole is
mounted on rockers like a cradle.
When the rocker is set up conven
ient to the "dirt" and the neces
sary water, ho fills the top compart
ment with gravel, and then rocks
with one hand and pours in water
with the other. When the washing
is done, the nuggets will be found
in the top and the dust collected
along the blanket.
Tho finest dust, in grains too small
to see, will be in the mud at tho
bottom. If quicksilver is mixed with
the mud, the gold will unite with
the quicksilver to form amalgam.
The amalgam, which is like putty,
is put in a buckskin bag and squeez
ed. Tho quicksilver comes through
the pores of the leather and leaves
the gold in the bag. The blankets
have to be rinsed in a barrel every
now and then and the contents of
the barrel treated with mercury.
Sluicing is the most effective way
of all, and is done always whenever
there is sufficient headway of water
and lumber can be had for making
the sluice boxes.
Sluice boxes, or troughs, 6 feet by
10 by 12 inches, are run end to end,
something like stovepipe. They ta
per a little to allow the end of ono
to fit into the end of another, or else
one end of each box is fitted with a ;
collar. The bottoms of the boxes
have slats and gratings in them to }
catch the particles of gold.
A sluice runs from a dam down j
along the route most convenient for
throwing in gravel from the "pay
dirt." There is no rocking or twist
ing sifting necessary, as the force of
the water stirs up the gravel euf- j
ficiently to give the gold a chance to j
settle. The men stand alongside the
sluices and throw in gravel witn a |
strewing swing and are careful to |
When enough gold has collected, \
the water is shut off, the gratings j
are taken out and "cleaned up," j
ready to begin again. Sluicing is :
three times as rapid work as rock- j
ing.?New York Press.

The negroes of the south had the '
best of training in varied fields of j

managers. In those regions where .
a diversity of crops was planted they j
became expert farmers. It is a gross !
error into which many of our north- j
era friends have fallen in thinking j
that the negroes are poor laborers. ;
They may be wanting in skill, but j
it is to bo doubted whether any oth- 1

large, so constant, so magnificent :

The Doc taw In Norway.
We do not believe that the conn- j
try will ever be free from rabies
until far moro stringent measures
have been adopted. The danger
arises mainly from stray curs of un
certain ownership and from dogs
which, although they might be
claimed by somebody, are not prop
erly cared for by their proprietors.
We should like to see the dog tax in
creased in amount, with due indul
gence to person who require dogs
for purposes or persons who require
dogs for the issue of receipts in the
form of collar badges, the color of
which might be varied every year, j
and which would enable a policeman I
to see at a glance whether the tax
for any particular dog had been
paid. If it had not, the dog should
be summarily destroyed.
By the strict enforcement of such
a system we should obtain a state of
things analogous to that which ex
ists in Norway, where not only is
rabies unknown, but where the dogs
seen in the street are handsome,
well bred and well cared for ani
mals, not sufficiently numerous to
be the nuisances they often are in
London. The Norwegians adopt
very stringent precautions with re
gard to dogs imported into their ter
ritory, insisting upon ample certifi
cation of health, and also, we be
lieve, upon a period of quarantine,
and, even in that most democratic
country, we have never heard that
the control of canine hygiene is vest
ed in local authorities, which would
be liable, in this matter, as in many
others, to oscillate between unrea
soning indulgence and unreasoning

The procession of the king was led \
by the general of the vanguard, su- :
perbly dressed, supported by retain
ers on his led pony and followed by
crowds of dignitaries, each with his
train, soldiers, men carrying aloft
frames of arrows reaching nearly
across the road, and huge flags of
silk brocade surmounted by plumes
of pheasants; servants in rows of
100 in the most delicate shades of .
blue, green or mauve silk gauze over
white; halberdiers, grandees, each
with a retinue of banner men ; rows
of royal banner men, carrying yel
low and blue silk flags emblazoned;
cavalrymen in imitation gold hel
mets and mediaeval armor, and tiger
hunters wearing coarse felt black
hats with conical crowns and dark
blue coats, trailing long guns.
With scarcely a pause followed
the president of the foreign office,
high above the crowd on a monocy

uprights a black platform carrying
a black chair decorated with a leop
ard's skin, the occupant of which
was carried by eight men at a height
of 8 feet from the ground. * * *

Respect For tho Living.
"Did you go to tho funeral?" one
woman asked another. "Yes," was
the reply. "I always feel it a duty
to go to funerals and show my re
spect for the dead. " The two moved
on, but their conversation started a
train of thought within me. Is it
always a tribute of respect to go to
funerals, irrespective of persons, as
I am aware this woman does? No
matter what the rank of the deceas
ed, or how slight her acquaintance,
whether private funeral or not, rain
or shine, her presence may be count
It may be gratifying to the vanity
of some to bave a large crowd at the
funerals of their beloved dead, but
to most sensible people the occasion
is too sacred and the sorrow too real
to care for the sympathy of casual
acquaintances. Friends' faces are
always welcome during bereave
ment, and it is dutiful and beautiful
to express a word of hope when
most needed and to accompany the
stricken ones to the last resting
place of the dead. But what about
the living around us, who are full
of life and ambition, or those bur
dened with sorrow none may guess?
Why not give them "a glad good
morning," or an hour or two of
your society at a time you feel they
must be lonely? Wait not until
death comes and then rush to the
fnneral as though you had always
been a most cherished friend. I like
it not?this custom prevalent in
small towns which permits any and
all to attend the funerals of those
to whom they are almost unknown
and whose motive for going is often
