FOUND PONY EXPRESS FORT.
Up In Mountains of Nevada, 30 Miles
J. A. Snedaker, a mining engineer
of Denver, while traveling in Eureka
county, Nev., 30 mines from the rail
road, found one of the stations of the
old overland trail. It was used for the
pony express. It is built of light gray
lava stone. The roof is of cedar poles,
covered with earth, and the sides are
pierced with holes, through which a
besieged garrison could take a shot at
an approaching enemy. An old corral
stands near the stationhouse. and the
surroundings are in all respects typi
cal of those days.
The overland trail passed in front
of the station, and Mr. Snedaler fol
lowed it for 20 miles across mountains
and through valleys which now pre
sent a scene of desolation.

How Scotch Lassie Rid Herself of
A young Highland ploughboy was
pestering a female servant with his
unwelcome attentions, and one day he
proposed. At this instant the pair
(they were walking in the fields)
came upon another servant, a man,
sleeping instead of working. The las
sie, a brawny wench, seized a stick
and beat the idler till he roared.
When he had slunk off to his duty the
swain relarked, admiringly:
"Ma, certie, lassie, but ye cud well
manage yer childer."
"Aye, or their father," replied the
girl. with a significant look.
The lover turned pale.
"Ma lass." he gasped. "I juist re

Others attest to the doner's admira

Tradition has it that one of Capt.
Kidd's dreaded vessels went to the

the records of the war department

MISS BIGGAR TELLS STORY.

statement regarding her relations
with Mr. Bennett. She said:
"We were duly married in Hobok

spurious in court the other day, is
genuine. At least, it is the one given
me the night of my wedding and had
not left my care until it was handed
to the court as evidence of my mar
"Why did we keep the marriage a
secret all these years? Simply this:
Mr. Bennett wanted it kept a secret,
and I had been led like a child to obey
him in all things. He wanted it kept
a secret because his first wife had
been dead only three months when
he married me. He had courted me,
followed me, pleaded for my love and
favor even before the death of his
"And yet we never, despite the ap.
parent mystery of it all, made any
real secret of our marriage. We were
'Mr. and Mrs. Bennett' on the regis
ters of the hotels when we went trav
eling; we were 'Mr. and Mrs. Ben
nett' at every store where accounts
were charged. I was known as Mr.
Bennett's wife in every line of our
daily domestic life.

before his death was such as entitles

than a nurse to him, to a great share
