Bright Outlook for belt MEines.
The Belt Mountains are attact
iiig unusual attentioin from 4ninlg
men throughout all sictinhs of th@
state just at present, and the recent
carbonate discoveries are drawing
many prospectors to that region,
which seems destined at a very
early day to beconme hne of 'the
,greatest silver-lead producing sec
tions of the state: The minles of
Barker, Neihart and other camps
in this range are developing some
surprising results, and new and
rich discoveries become of daily and
hmore frequent occurrence as the
scope of the prospcctoi is extended.
Many old claims once worked in a
desultory manner are now being
developed in earnest, snd some of
these will doubtless soon be produc
ing plenty of ore. At nearly every
point throughout the range is this
increased activity apparent.

Deborah Stark Walks400 Miles
to Find a Brutal Husband.
"After I had walked over 400
miles and suffered the pangs of
hunger for many weeks to find him
he kicked me and threw me down
Young and pretty Mrs. Deborah
Stark stood facing her husband.
Marcus, in the Essex Market po
lice court yesterday morning as she
thus accused him.
A few months after the death of
he parents Marcus Stark made his
appearence in the little country
town, and Deborah fell in love with
his handsome face.
Learning that she possessed a
farm and $10,00.) he married her
and immediately commenced to
squander the little fortune in 4
most reckless way.
It was not long before the money
was all gone, and Marcus sold the
farm. Leaving his wife and two
pretty little children to live as best
they could, he came to this country.
She managed to borrow just
enough money to buy a steerage
ticket. Failing to secure enough
money to carry her to Hamberg,
which was ever 400 miles from
where she lived, she started with
her two little ones in her arms to
It was eight weeks from the time
she started that she arrived in
Hamburg. Hatless, shoeless and
dying from hunger, she sank un
conscious to the ground with the
little children in her arms.
She ivas taken to the hospital,
where she lay for many weeks hov
ering between life and death.
On being discharged from the
hospital she immediately sailed for
New York and arrived here a month
Last Wedncsday afternoon she
stagg&red through Hester street.
Weak from want of food and ex
hausted from wandering about, she
sank unconscious to the sidewalk.
A policeman was about to remove
her to the stationhouse, when a
young and pretty woman appeared
and asked to be allowed to take
her and the children to her home.
"My husband is coming," said
the young woman to Mrs. Stark at.
In another moment the door
opened. A handsome young man
started to enter. He caught sight
of Mrs. Stark and stood on the
threshold as if petrified. She looked
at him for a moment and then ran
to him with a glad cry:
"Marcus, Marcus," she exclaimed
as she threw her arms about. his
neck, "at last I have found youl"
With an oath upon his lips he
threw her to the floor and bru
tally kicked her. Not satisfied
with this, lie drew her into the hall
and threw her down stairs.
Mrs. Stark No. 2 immediately
disappeared and the police were
unable to find any trace of her.
In the Essex Market police court
yesterday morning Stark, who was
dressed'exceedingly well, was held
for trial without bail.
Proper Care of Feet.
New Y'ork Times.
Every orie especially children,
should wear properly-fitting shoes,
nomatter how common the material.
They should be neither too large
nor too small, and should have low
flat heels, that must be promptly
"righted" as soot as they begin to
wear to-one side. If toes of the foot
show a tendency to overlap they
should be rubbed with the hands
once or twice each day; and if this
care commences when curving com
mences it will, as-a rule, prove suf
ficient to correct any irregularities
of this--nature. If a nail is wayward
in its growth, trim it only lightly
at the ailing corner, but fully at
the opposite corner. If both cor
ners grow too deeply into the flesh,
clip them carefully and lightly and
then scrape the center of the nail
from the tip to near the root until
it is thin and flexible. This pro
cess seldom 'fails to correct refrac
tory nails, provided, of course, they
are not neglected to long.
Betsey Cox, a colored woman
who died recently at Greenville,
S. C.,.was 130 years of age. She
r -"enimbered many in idents of the
Revolution but never saw George
Victoria's Three Pearls.
Iadies Ilnme .lournd!.
Queen Victoria is said to have a
great fo:idness for pearls. She has
taken care that all her daughters
shall have fine pearl necklaces.
One of her first purchases after the
birth of each, has been two hr three
pearls, and every year until their
marriage she has added a pearl or
two to her stock until the necklace
she required was ready. In this
quiet, economical way she has been
enabled to nmake up a rope of pearls
for each of the princesses, and those
who have seen the necklaces at
court, say that the daughters are,
so far as pearls go, well supplied
with jewelry. Thereby hangs a
tal. Sonimec years ago her majesty
bought from a well known London
jeweler three very beautiful pearls,
the united cost of which was not
fr short of five hundred pounds.
A little while after the purchase
had been made the merchant was
surprised to receive a letter from a
lady at coart. which read: 'The
queen wishes very much to know
whether pearls will burn." The
reply to this somewhat tardy scicn
ttfic inquiry was an assurance tl.a
if her manjesty wished to oxvgoniz,,
pearls for her amusemeni s'lc would
find that they would burn in an
ordinary fire. The rejoinder brou.ht
the secret to light. The queen had
placed the pearls on her writing
desk, wrapped in a piece of tissue
~)per. As she was writing one
morning she used the tissue paper
to wipe her pen, and then threw it
into the fire. The pearls, all un
observed, went with it: The ashes
of the grate were searched for them
in vain. They had been destroyed
so utterly as to leave no trace.
The queen, with her own hand,
hadl cast three splendid jew els,
worth more than the average in
coie of her nmiddle-class sulbjects,
into the blaze.
lWhat Pleased iaucMalhon.
One day Marshal MacMahon,
durilig one of his presidential tours,
called on a ce rtain Prefset against
whom serious charges had been
presented at headquarters. The
Marshal spent the night at the pre
fecture. He was an early riser and
a genuine soldier-waited upon
himself and brushed his own
clothes. In the morning he stood
as usual, brush in hand, at the
open window. The Prefect, who
slept in the opposite wing, and who,
harrassed with gloomy forebodings,
had also risen, early, saw him,
opened his window, and likewise
began to brush his coat.
"Ah! Monsieur le Prefect, do you
get up as early as this?"
"Every day, Monsieur le Pris
"Really! and brush your clothes
"I am quite a soldier in that
Both went on brushing.
"Look here," said the Marshal.
"just step across to my room."
The next moment the Prefect
was deep in conversation with the
Marshal, on whom he made a very
favorable impression, and was soon
afterward promoted to a more lu
crative oflice. "Capital fellow
that " the Marshal used to say;
"gets up early and is always at his
Saved Her Sit. er.
A woman may sink very low in
the moral and social scale without
entirely losing the unselfish spirit
which makes her suffer and be sac
rificed for others.
This was signally illustrated in a
tragedy in New York, the other
day. Charley Jackson had a quar
rel with his girl, Mamie Murphy.
In his anger he seized a knife and
-drove it into her up to the hilt.
A noliceman who saw the affair
drew his pistol and aimed it at
Jackson. The wounded girl stag
gered between the two men, threw
up the pistol, and enabled her lover
to escape. Then she fell to the
floor and bled to death.
Such forgiveness-such devotion
to the man who had taken her life
-will not be understood by the
thoughtless herd. But there was
something in it almost divine. A
woman capable of such a deed had
possibilities of good in her which,
in a more favorable environment,
would have made her life one of
beauty and fragarnce.
This is a strang world.
