K has been explained by Director

Our Foreign Trade.
The report of the bureau of statistics
of out foreign trade fur ten months
trout July 1, 1891. to April 30, 1893,
shows that our foreign commerce ex
panded In nearly every branch. Thus
the exports of wheat and all other
hreadstulfs not only greatly exceeded
the corresponding time last year, but
were about (142,000,000 largw than the
average for the last five years. Tho ex
ports of cotton were about the same aa
last year in quantity, but the value was
less on account of the lower prices pre
vailing, although ft is tia, 000,000 more
than the average tor five' years. The
outgo' of provisions fell below last year
but the value was nearly t!,000,000 la
excess of five years' average. The ex
ports of ell domestic commodities fof
the tea months reached the large ag
gregate of S84,0O0,W Id round boisV
ben, which Is nearly tl,eoO,000 mora
than last year, and exceeds the free
years' average about t217.000.0oa This

Galena is an old Snish mine which

overcome any eae who defes to proi

The story is .that in this mlue great
riches were found by seven men who
were so overcome bv their good for

fire division of the find, but each was
eager to have the whole fof liihisclf

they were killed by their companions
until bat one nun was left, and then
it is related that daring the night he
