A RUSSIAN PRISONER.
Experience of a Man Who Was Chain

In writting of the Schluesselburg
prison in McClure's. Magazine David
Soskice tells of a prisoner who was
chained to a wheelbarrow:
"Schedrin had been condemned to
hard labor in the convict mines of Si
beria and for an attempt to escape
from there had Lbeen sentenced to be
chained to a heavy wheelbarrow.
W.tn the order came for his transfer
from Siberia to St. l'etersburg no con
veyance could be found large enough
to contain him, the wheelbarrow and
the convoy of gendarmes. Yet. as the
wheelbarrow had become a part of
the prisoner. the gendarmes were
afraid to leave it behind. It was there
fore decided to place Schedrin with his
convoy in one cart and the wheelbar
row behind In another. For several
months, day and night. Schedrin and
the gendarmes galloped through Si
beria upon a troika (a three horsed
cart or sledge . while another sped be
hind them upon which the wheelbar-:
row reposed, causing the deepest
amazement among the peasants In the
villages through which they passed.
Upon the arrival of the prisoner in SS.
Peter and Paul lie was once again
chained to the barrow. and ouly after
he had been six weeks in the Schlues
selburg was he finally detached from
it and given freedom of movement
within the narrow contines of his cell.
- -When they unchalned me.' said
Schedrin subsequently. -1 could not get
enough moven:ent. I wanted to run
and run, and it seemed to me that I
-ould never stop. Ilow strange it is
that men who can enjoy perfect free
dom of movement never realize the!

The Fortune That Came to a Man and

An Irishman named Whalen found

savings of his wife he bought not far
from Ballarat a few acres of ground
containing a water pool and a sluggish
spring. With the mud and gravel from
the bottom of the pool he made sun

himself and family. started a bar for

a colony of Chinamen living near by
commenced to visit his bar every
night. Then Mrs. Whalen discovered
that some one had bit by bit carried
off the mud plgstye and Its surround
ing wall so gradually that It had al
most gone before she noticed it. Soon
the chimney and the cabin walls also
began to vanish. After a careful
watch Mrs. Whalen discovered that
while one band of Chinamen kept her
husband busy in the bar another band
was stealing the chimneys and walls.
Whalen knew the Chinamen were no
fools. and, acting on his wife's sugges
ton, he also "stole a pan of dirt" from
his own chimney and washed it out.
Ther. he ordered tents for his family
to live in and washed away the entire
house. It was literally built of gold
dust. After that the pool and the
spring were also attacked. and the re
sult was a big fortune for the lucky
Irishman and his cute little wife.

Wood Too Hard to Burn.
There are certain kinds of wood that
are too hard to burn or refuse to Ignite
for some other reason. such as iron
wood and the good brier root, but it is
a curiosity to come across a piece of
common deal-the soft, light wood of
which so many boxes are made-that
cannot be set fire to. The p~iece of.
wood in question was common white
deal from Sweden. but was remarka
ble for Its comparative weight. It had
formed part of a boat belonging to a
whaler and had been dragged below~
the surface of the water to the depth
of more than half a mile by a bar
pooned whale. The length of line and
the short distance from the point of
descent after being struck at which
the whale rose to the surface was a
proof of the depth to which It had
dragged the boat. Only part of the
boat came up again at the end of the
ne, and it was taken on board when
the whale had been killed. That piece
f wood was so hard that It would not
burn In a gas jet. The weight of wa
ter had compressed it.-Londoni Stand

he could not play in strict tempo. Like

his public. America, particularly In
the regions visIted, was not in the

both, played jigs and old tunes, roused
the echoes with the "Star Spangled

would have been musical snobbery to
