One Place In This Busy World Where
Money Is Useless.
Now and then one hears of out of
the way places where the conventions
of life, as they are understood, do not
exist. One of these is where money is
useless. This is Ascension island. in
This island is the property of the
British admiralty and is governed by
a captain of the royal navy. There is
no private property in land, so there
are no rents, taxes, etc. The flocks
and herds are public property, and
the meat killed is issued in rations.
So are the vegetables grown on the

is issued by the sergeant major. The
only private property are fowls and
pigeons. Even the wild donkeys are
under government control. They are
listed on the books of the paymaster
and are handed over at stock taking.
The population consists of a few
bluejackets, a company of marines and
some Kroos from Sierra Leone.
There a marine can do anything.
The muleteer is a marine; so are the
gardeners, the shepherds. the stock
men, the grooms, the masons. the car
penters and the plumbers. Even the
island trapper, who gets rewards for

DEAN SWIFT'S CHANCE.
His Marriage of a Country Couple
Caught In a Storm.
It is related of the whimsical Dean
Swift that on one occasion when
caught in a shower of rain he took
shelter under a wide spreading tree,
where he found a party of young peo

One, a girl, was weeping. and the
dean learned that she was on her way
to church to marry a young fellow
who was with her.
The party were walking, as was
then the custom in country districts,
but owing to the storm It seemed very
much as if the ceremony would not
take place that day.

Conditions Make For Creatures of an
Advanced Order of Intellect.
Whatever its actual age, any life
now existent on Mars must be in the
land stage of its development-on the
whole, a much higher one than the ma
rine. But. more than this, it should
probably have gone much further if it
exists at all, for in its evolving' terra
firma Mars has far outstripped the
earth. Mars' surface is now all land.
Its forms of life must be not only ter
restrial as against aquatic, but even
as opposed to terraqucous ones. It
must have reached not simply the
stage of land dwelling where the pos
sibilities are greater for those able to
embrace them, but that further point
of pinching poverty where brain is
needed to survive at all.
The struggle for existence in the
planet's decrepitude and decay would
tend to evolve intelligence to cope with
circumstances growing momentarily
more and more adverse. But, further
more, the solidarity that the condi
tions prescribed woull conduce to a
breadth of understandmg sufficient to
utilize it. Intercommunication over the
whole globe is made not only possible,
but obligatory. This would lead to the
easier spreading over it of some demi
nant creature-especially were this be
ing of an advanced order of intellect
able to rise above its bodily limitations
to amelioration of the conditions
through exercise of mind. What ab
sence of seas would thus entail ab
sence of mountains would further.
These two obstacles to distribution re
moved, life there would tend the
quicker to reach a highly organized
stage. Thus Martian conditions them
selves make for intelligence.-Percival

RAYS AND SKATES.
They Are Known to Fishermen as the
Jokes of the Sea.
The rays and skates are the jokes of
the sea. Their bodies are as flat as
the pancakes made by the man in
white on a griddle in the window of a
"beef and" restaurant Their eyes
look upward, and they have tails as
slender and tapering as the Whip of
a ringmaster of a circus.
In the United States the most com
mon rays are called "skates." The
whip tailed rays because of their long,
slender tails with their erectile spines
at the end, capable of inflicting severe
and dangerous wounds, are frequently
called sting rays. The common sting
ray feeds on oysters, clams and other
valuable mollusks and in the Atlantic
waters is known as the "clam cracker."
Of the skates the commonest as well
as the smallest species on the Atlantic
coast is known as the tobacco box;
the largest is aptly called the barn
door. On the western coast of the
United States Is found the big skate,
which reaches a length of six feet,
two feet larger than its eastern rela
Because of its habit of rolling itself
up when caught the common skate has
been called "bonnet skate." It Is also
known as the "hedgehog ray."
On the New Jersey coast the trawl
fishermen cut off the broad, fleshy
"wings" and they are sold for "sad
dles," sometimes bringing 5i and even
10 cents a pound, These men call the
ish "possum," "sea possum" and "bob
tailed skate." As a rule, anglers throw
the fish back into the water as being
of no value.

to touch It. The artist was getting
nervous at the approach of the finger
to the paint, and he asked the visitor
not to touch the portrait, as it was not

It Furnished the Saltpeter For the
War of 1812.
There is an interesting bit of history
connected with the cave. Few Ameri
cans are aware that it helped to save
the country in the war of 1812 by fur
nishing saltpeter for the manufacture
of gunpowder. but such is the case.
The powder used by Old Hickory in
whipping the British so handsomely at
New Orleans in 1815 is said to have
been made with saltpeter from Mam
moth cave. As early as 18(0 a Mr.
Fowler obt Tined, it is said. 100.000
pounds of titter from the twenty-eight
limestone caverns that had then been
discovered in Kentucky.
In 101; Dr. Samuel Brown of Lex
ington rode a thousand miles on horse
back to Philadelphia to lay before the
American Philosophical society, in ses
sion there, the facts about the pres
ence of niter in these caverns, saying
that the deposits would be especially
valuable in case of war with any for
eign power. Brown did not mention
Mammoth cave by name at that time,
sand the probability is, as local tradi
tion asserts, that It was first discov
ered by whites in 1809 when a hunter
named Houchins or Hutchins entered
it in pursuit of a wounded bear. Bay
ard Taylor says it was first discovered
in 1S02, but does not give his author
ity. The only value set on it at first
was for the nitrous earth it contained.
For this a Mr. McLean paid $40 for
the cave and 200 acres of land around
its mouth. McLean sold It to a Mr.
Gatewood; he to Messrs. Grazt and
Wilkins, who derived a fortune from
the saltpeter made there during the
war of 1812. The embargo cut us off
from any other supply, and the output
of saltpeter from this cave enabled our
manufacturers to make sufficient pow
der to carry on the war.-New York

A GREAT WRESTLER.
His Encounter With the Czar and His
One of the stories of Peter the Great
which are current at the court of St.
Petersburg is of the great czar's wres
tling match with a young dragoon.
Once in the imperial palace-so the
story goes-Peter was at table with
a great many princes and noblemea.
and soldiers were posted within the
hall. The czar was in a joyous mood,
and. rising, called out to the comup:ny:
"Listen, princes and boyars! Is there
among you one who will wrestle with
the car?" There was no reply, and
the czar repeated the challenge.
No prince or nobleman dared to wres
tle with his sovereign. But all at once
a young dragoon stepped out from
the ranks of the soldiers on guard.
"Listen. orthodox czar," he said. "I
will wrestle with thee." "Well, young
dragoon." said Peter, "I will- wrestle
with thee, but on these conditions: If
thou throwest me, I will pardon thee,
but if thou art thrown thou shalt be
beheaded. Wilt thou wrestle on those
"I will, great czar," said the soldier.
They closed, and presently the soldier
with his left arm threw the czar and
with his right he prevented him from
falling to the ground. The sovereign
was clearly beaten. The czar offered
the soldier whatever reward he should
claim, and he ignobly claimed the
privilege of drinking free as long as
he lived in all the inns belonging to
the crown. What became of him his
tory does not say.

Slow Mental Ripening.
Not infrequently those mentalities
that ripen the slowest last the longest,
and often the history of these great

worldly coldness until forty or more

of a great genius is almost invariably
one of a sad and somber tone, a walk
apart from the beaten path." Such
are the words of one who should know
what the "doers of deeds" must en
dure. Be this as it may, it is now
recognized that many of the finest
achievements in business, statesman

have been wrought by men long past
