How Savings Grow
This incident, told in a St. Louis
new-paper, shows how a small sum
deposited where it will draw a mod
erate rrfte of interest, will accumulate
in the course of years. It ought to
convey a lesson to young persons
who think their savings are too small
to he worth investing.
Some years ago a man entered the
Boatmen's Savings Hank on Second
Street, in St. Louis with a somewhat
diffident air, and looked enquiringly
about him as one not quite positive
of his hearings, lie scrutinized the
building closely, looked about the in
terior, and presently found his way
to the cashier's desk.
"There used to be a bank here in
the old times," he said, "called the
long ago; this

"It is the same bank," replied the
cashier, "only the name U a little
"Ah!" exclaimed the stranger,
with surprise. "Well, when the
old institution started, I was one of
the first depositors; but I put in only
$103. I reckon, after so many ups
and downs, that it must have been
wiped out long ago."
"Who are you?" the cashier asked
"and what is your name?"
"My name is Jeffries."
"Yes; Miey called
"Where Have you been,
feries, these long years,
haven't you written us'."'
"In Californy and, of course, I
thought the if 100 was n dead duck,
and it's only your sign that called
me in now." . ,
"Well, Mr. Jefferies, if you have
been idle," said the cashier, taking
down and opening a great folio,
"your hundred dollars has not; here
it is. Your check on this bank to
day is good for !?7,.S7.". You have
only got to get some one to prove
your identity and we will pay it

One of the best stories about typo
graphical errors is told by a New
York newspaper man, who was at
the 'time a proof-reader on the Dallas
Commercial. He lost his job through
the carelessness of the foreman in
marking two sets of "X" copy and
hanging it on the hook at the same
time. The mistake resulted in about
the funniest newspaper "bull" ever
heard of, by reason of the fact that
the separate takes of the different
copy fitted together without a break.
Tom Ochiltree, the red-haired ex
Congressman and famous disciple of
the science of hyperbole, made a
speech at the Opera House on the
evening in question, and on the after
noon of the same day a mad dog rytd
been killed in the streets. Perhaps
fate recognized an atlinity between
Ochiltree and a mad dog. At any
rate the first "take" of the mad dog
item got mixed, and this is the way
the two paragraphs appeared in the
paper the next morning,:

to an audience that was inclined to

for the lecture the familiar figure of
the eloquent Texan was prominent
on the stage, where he sat talking to
Col. . Promptly at 8 o'clock
the Colonel arose, and in a few ap
propriate remarks, introduced the
speaker of the evening, who bowed

"With his tail tucked between his
legs he began to howl, to snarl and
snap at everything in sight. He
frothed at the mouth, he slobbered
and he pouted. His long and ugly
tongue hung out nearly a foot over
his left jawbone. It was black and
heavy. A 'citizen recognizing that
in such a condition he was a menace
to life, fished out a Colt's revolver
and drew a bead on him. A sharp,
whip-like report rang out and a pis
tol ball penetrated the brute's left
eye. He gave an agonizing yelp,

. The subteranean rivers of the
world, of which the one in the Mam
moth Cave of Kentucky is usually
reckoned as the most unique, are
generally set down in lists of natural
curiosities as being the greatest won"
ders in the line of waterways; but
such lists, however, are not always
reliable, To the mind of "Ye Curi
ous Man" there are other rivers
which have a sufficient element of

Salton Lake, the "great inland sea
of Arizona," which was formed by
the overflowing of the Colorado
ltiver, and caused so much excite
ment and talk last summer, is fast
drying up. A gentleman who arriv
ed in Los Angeles from Salton a few
days ago says Jhe water has receded
to such an extent as to show very
clearly the old locomotive which
was submerged at the end of the rail
road spur near the salt works. This
point is three miles south of Salton
Lake proper. A great stretch of the
desert which was submerged is now
dry and covered with a coating of
glistening salt crystals. The salt
company, which was washed out,
will resume operations soon.
