been with a view of looking up a location

state that about the 20th of March they
discovered a large fissure in the earth, in
Mead county, some twenty-five miles south
of' Dodge City.-- It was about twenty feet
long and thirteen feet wide, and seemed to
be bottomless. The water had risen and
filled up the cavity made by the sunkan
earth, and it was perfectly clear and ap
parently hundreds of feet in depth. ' Upon
dipping up some of the water and tasting
it, it was found to be very brackish and
possess high saline qualities. In order to
experiment about four gallons of water
was taken up submitted to the solar sys
tern of manufacturing salt, when, after a
short time, one gallon of fine salt, said to
be superior to Syracuse or Saginaw, was
gatheied. A stone was afterward thrown
into this miniature salt lake, and it seem

that . the greatest possible excitement
exists out there over the discovery, and
hundreds are flocking to the pi ace.

General. Bauer, who commanded the
Russian cavalry in Holstein, was a soldier
of fortune, whose family and country were
unknown to every one. When encamped
near Husum, he took a mode of discover
ing himself as novel as it was amible. He
invited all his field officers and some, oth
ers to dine with hint, and sent his adjutant
to bring a miller and his wife who lived
in the neighborhood to. the entertainment.
The poor couple came, very much afraid
of the summons, and quite contused when
they appeared In lore the Muscovite gen
eral. Bauer seeing this, bade them be
Suite easy, for he only intended to show
lem kindness, and had sent for them to
dine with him that day; at the same time
he conveised familiarly with them about
the country. At dinner the general placed
the miller and his wife one on each hand,
and nearest to him, and paid particular
attention to them. In the course of the
entertainment be asked the miller many
questions about his family and- relations.
The miller stated that he was the eldest
son of his father, who left the mill he then
possessed, and thai he hod two brothers
and one sister. .-
"Have you no other brother r" asked the
"No," replied the miller. -I once had
another brother, but he . went away with
the soldiers when he was very young, and
must have long ago been killed in the
wsrs." ' ' ' '
The general, observing ' the company
much surprised at his conversation with
the miller, said to them : "Brother eoldieis
you have been curiour to know, who. I
was, and whence I came. I now inform
you that this is the place of my nativity,
and you have heard from this miller, who
is my eldest brother, what my family is."
Then turning to the astonished miller and
his wife, the general embraced them, say
ing that he was Uie brother they had sup
posed dead. The general then envited the
whole of the company to. meet him the
next day at the mill, where a splendid ep
tertainment was provided, the general
pointing out to his brothers in arms the
room in which he was born, with as much
evident joy as if he had been showing
them the place where he had :iint'd a vic

In the March Scribner, Edward Eggles
lon's paper on "Some Western School
masters" gives this anecdote of school dis
cipline in Indiana in the old times:
. "To a nervous child the old discipline
was. indeed, very terrible. The long
beech switches hanging on hooks against
the wall haunted me night and- day, from
the time I entered one of the old schools.
And whenever there came an outburst be
tween master and pupils, the thoughtless
child often got the beating that should
have fallen upon the malicious mischief
maker. ' At the master was always quick
to fly Into a passion, the fun-loying boys
were always happy to stir him up. It was

showed kii .iiaiiiy on his own part
to - get some choice , fun . out of. . the
conflict, as when on one occasion. In a
school in Ohio, the boys were forbidden to
attend a circus. - tve or six or them went
in spite of the prohibition. - Tbc next
morning the schoolmaster called them out
on the floor and addressed them : ' ' ..

".'Well, the others did not get a chance
