There Is an amusing story as to how
an Englishman trho wan visiting this
counter at the time of the As' or-Willing
wedding managed to get his name in
the paper as one of the guests. .
It seems, says the Chicago News, the
Englishman made his headquarters in
New York, where he is pretty well
known, and enjoys the company of a
few chosen friends Ofoai his stated
visits to this country. Ho happened to
be in the metropolis at fhe time the
wedding was talked about, and Joking
ly said that ho had received an invita
tion. ' His acquaintances ldoked at him
in blank amazement. NoCo'he of their
set had been invited to the ceremony,
and they secretly wondered how on
earth the Englishman had managed it
Curiosity finally predominated, and
after considerable hesitation tho ques
tion was put polntblinlc when the
Englishman laughingly said it was a
Joke, but, said he: 'I'll bet anyone
here that I can go over to Philadelphia
as one of the guests." f t
. The bet was taken wit?Aisiderable
odds In the Englishman's fav r. Sev
eral days before the swell ceremony oc
curred the Londoner secretly ascer
tained where the Astow would stop
when in the city. Accordingly he went
over and selected a suiio of the best
rooms obtainable at the .same hotoL
and when the wedding guests began to
arrive . he came with . the crowd, ao
companied by a volet n)nd a goodly
amount of luggage. ' lies' was at once
set down as an Aster "st, and his
English manners - and 'urtent, which
were closely observed, t ore greatly in
his favor. .When the reporter came
around to . get the lis of names the
Englishman took special- pain to see
that his' name was printed correctly,
and, although he never went near the
wedding, he had the cheek to return to
New York and claim his bet.
' AU the evidence was in his favor, for
both Philadelphia and New York jour
nals gave publicity to his same, and his
friends to this day do rt know that
they were shamefully diped. ' "

: DECIDED BY A COIN.
Tit Oaddesa of Chaos Invoked by Mr.
, , Stanley la Arloa.
In a little speech tqf the New York
Press club the other evening Henry M.
Stanley said: .
In Central Africa It jtvas not the fash
ion to indulge in afttfr-dinncr oratory
and he was consequently & .men-hat out
of practice. Several v.mcs in his career
he had been compcll'il XXI decide In a
moment what course $f "action to pur

island without friends and without mon
ey. This was nineteen years ago. He
hod to dccldo in a momont what to do,
aud ho determined to go on.' Ho raised
a loan of thirty thousand dollars in a
few hours by paying five thousand dol
lars premium, and went ahead until,
after a lapse of nino months, he found
David Livingstone, the object of his
search. .
When he reached the spot where Liv
ingstone had turned back he was again
confronted with the necessity of instan
taneous decision. He was in a quan
dary. If he turned back he would stamp
his enterprise with failure. . If he went
on he knew not what would happen.
He held a consultation with his lieuten
ant, and the latter suggested that the
matter might be settled by tossing a
coin. - He accepted the suggestion and
tossed up a rupee. The coin decided
against going ou. , But Stanley was not
satisfied. Ho. tossed again, and still
again, and each time the coin said that
Stanley should not go on. Then be had
recourse to long and short straws and
three times this divination declared
that the explorer should turn bock. .
. But bo was still not satisfied to go
back. He thought that something must
be the matter with the Hi pee and the
straws, and so ho cast aside the prophe
cies of both and went on following the
course of the great river until he found
whence it came. When he returned to
London after this expedition be found
the Geographical society debating
whether it should call him a pirate or
give him a dinner. It finally decided to
give him a dinner. i.i '
RICH MEN, OF THE FUTURE.
Haw to Realise the Full Tain of
Money. "
A leather merchant, not generally
known to be a wealthy man, died some
months ago in New York. A lawsuit
arose from his will, which distributed
great legacies among a score of col
leges. The suit was compromised, and
the legacies will be paid. , Out of the
estate of this unknown, millionaire
nearly four million dollars will be given
to thirty-five colleges; half a million
more will be divided between several
hospitals, ' . ' j. I
It is impossible, says the Youth's
Companion, to estimate - the good to
students and tho sick that these be
quests insure for years, and years to
come. .There is no doubt, however,
that la guneral a rich man' money bad
better be given away before bis. death
than after it " .' c ! ,. ; ;
Many years may pass 'between the
making of a fortune and the carrying
out of tha maker's wilL Besides this
useless delay there is the danger that
bequests will be diverted from their in
tended purpose. While a man Is alive,
he can' see that his money is spent a
he wishes. After his death there is no
telling what legal contention and un
foreseen difficulties may bring about.
Money in itself is worth nothing. Its
only value lies In what one can do with,
it. Many young people are going to
make fortune within the next inera
tlon or two. If they will devote a share
of their wealth, while they can still
control it, to the wise, generous servioo
of their fullow-mcn, the vulue of money
will be realized a never boforii.

BONG AH SUE'S VOICE.
It Dropped to Baaao Profundo and to
Two Thonaand Dollars Per Inr. .
Bong Ah Sue has lost his voice and
Chinatown is stricken with ditmay,
says the San Francisco Examiner, lie
has been the greatest soubrette on the
Chinese stage for fifteen years, and was
brought to this city ten years ago at
great expense and on a contract guar
anteeing him six thousand dollars a
year. -
- If a man were Edwin Booth or Sarah
Bernhardt on the Chinese stage he
could only command a small salary in
his own country, but just as Tamagno
or Scalchl might work for a pittance in
their native Italy and receive a princely
income in Now York so would the fa
vorite but starving actor in Canton or
Foochow receive a fortune in San Fran
cisco. ,
The tragedian of the Jackson Street
theater receives eight thousand dollars
a year, even in these dull times, and
the leading lady gets seVen thousand
five hundred dollars, although she is
only a man with a falsetto voice.
But while these stars appeal to the
staid and ancient merchants of Jackson
and , Washington streets, the great
soubrette, Bong Ah Sue, Is beloved 6f
the masses.
To be sure Bong Ah Suo has played in
the roles of chambermaid and walking
lady and irate cook, etc., but then he
was the Lotto, and Minnie Palmer, the
Fay Templeton, the Flora Wulsh, tho
May Irwin and many others of the
Chinese stage. ' When Bong Ah Sue
stopped on the stnge of tho Jackson
Street theater, with his soft, womanly
screech, there was always a tempest of
delight, laughter and applause.
With his large salary Bong Ah Sue
was Invincible with the ladies. Ho
simply had to glance toward tho upper
boxes, sacred precincts of the greut
mercantile families, and he would win
a dozen eyes fraught with admiration.
He is also a freut stage manager, and
as Bueh is as invaluablo as tha late Dion
Boucicaultor the later Lawrence Bar
ret in staging a melodrama or manag
ing a difficult tragedy. '. ' '
His salary enabled him to dress as
gorgeously in his way as Billy Emerson
or Maurice Burryraore. But now he
has had to lend his diamonds to a
greedy broker in order to maintain his
erstwhile style, and to leave his enam
eled watch with an uncle onhiscousln's
side to preserve his prestige with China
town society.
' Bong Ah Sue lost his voice as sudden
ly as did tho famous Italian tenor Bon
coni, who split his vocal chords In
twain ut C alt. It was only last Mon
day that this dramatic tragedy hap
pened. -The role was difficult and re-
-quirrd o aucccHMou of monologues from.
tho Boubretto that would tax the efforts
of the greatest artisti.
Suddenly, in tho midJlo of the third
net, Bong 'Ah Sue's delicate falsetto
wontf stale. With a hideous grating It
fell to a courso busso profundo.
Tho audience' shouted with glee at
first and thought it (.imply u merry jest.
With a grimace of paiu Bong Ah Suo
strove to throw his register back to
placo bu'. only a dreadful shriek came
out Then the people knew that their
idol was fallen, they ccasod their ap
plause and let the play drug itself to its
mournful end.
Bong Ah Suo floundered manfully
through low notes and high notes to the
end, and walked oil the stago to his
rooms a broken man.
His salary falls from six thousand to
two thousand a year, and to live ho will
have to eschew the world, the flesh and
the devil, and settle down to the grim
necessities of minor roles.
LIKE ELIJAH OF OLD.
Ho
Calf Wa Translated Bodily to
the Heavenly Grazing tlronnda.
A cattleman of the Choctaw nation
tells a remarkable story of a cyclone
which ho witnessed In the Indian ter
ritory. Said he: "It was about three
o'clock on a recent afternoon that dark
clouds appeared In the southwest,
and In a few moments the clouds
turned light blue and it seemed as if
they were on fire with lightning. - A
perfect calin prevailed and the heat
was suffocating. The clouds Bcemcd
to split in . the middle, going east
and northwest Then 1 heard a
low, rumbling noise, like continuous
thunder. On tho prairie wns a bunch
of cattlo which belonged to a man
named Corning. Tho tcrrlflo wind, or
what you might call a tornado, lifted
tho cattlo into the air soino fifty feet
and dushed them Into the trees, killing
them outright Now, I am going to
toll you something that may sccra in
credible, but is nevertheless tho truth:;
I saw a calf carried up into the clouds
and disappear. The animal went round
and round In n circle until lost to view.
A vigilant search wns made for tho
calf, but It has never been seen since.
The wind tore things up for a mile or
so, when it spent its force. Bain and
hall followed In tho wake of the storm,
and a number of trees were uprooted,
The storm was confined to the wood,
and did not reach the crops in tho
clearings.'' . ...
A rine-PoUen Storm.
- A few mornings ago on arising rest-,
dents of Nashville, Tenn., wero sur
prised and somewhat alarmed to find,
tho ground covered with a yellow do",
posit , resembling , powdered sulphur,,
which for a time it was supposed to be.
The substance was soon found, how
ever, to bo the pollen of pines, carried,
by the winds from a strip of pine
forest extending from Louisiana'
through North Carolina to Virginia.
Tho force of tho winds is so great and
pine pollen do light that the latter la
sometimes carried from the pine re
gions to Chicago in such vnnt quantities
that tho waters of Lake Michigan for
miles otitsldo tho city limits are cov
ered with a thick, yellow senra. This
pollen, although minute in tho present
age, In prehlstorlo times wns of great
size, spores of some bpecle of lyco
podiums and cclaoncllas, which are
allied to tho coniform, having a dlam
ster of one-alxtocnth of, an inch, and
oompotied almont cctltcly some of the
European coal bed.
AN ANCIENT " SELL." ..
The Bag .Tok Played rpoa a Quarry
. , anan of Carrara.
Not many traveler visit Carrara,
where the finest of marble is constant
ly being quarried, as it has been for so
many centuries, but, once there, much
may be found in the way of legend and
scenery to occupy the curious mind. In
numcraoie stories Boat about the place,
says a writer in Corn hi 11, coucernlng
the existence of hidden treasures. . . ,
Gold has often been found in the
numerable stories float about the place.
neighborhood of the town, and not very
long ago a crock of gold coins was un"
canned oeneatn one OI the streets. -
A most curious experience, however,
was that of a quarryman who, in one of
his rambles, stumbled npon an old de
serted quarry, within which, half
buriod in gross and brambles, lay an
enormous block of heavy marble. On
examining it, he fonnd a number of
letters rudely cut, and half-hidden . un
der a crust of dirt With some diffi
culty he managed to speU out ' the
words: "Blessed is he who shall turn
me over.' . ,
The man at once jumped at the con
clusion that he had stumbled upon
hidden treasure, and that his fortune
was made. He rushed home and vl.
looted some of his friends to aid him in
the recovery of the concealed gold.
After some very hard labor they suc
ceeded in "turning the hoary giant
over. Another rude inscription met
tneir eager eyes: "Thanks, my friends.
