HOV "rCfMY ATKINS FARES IN THE
MATTER OF FOOD.
VV bnt He Most Attalat Before Be Can
S ecu re tbe Privilege of Marrylstz.
Ilow tbe Wives of tbe Privates Live
la tbe Barracks.
The orderly man clatters in at the
door with a steaming con of tea. from
which ho rapidly fills the basins, the
milk aud tsafjar having been already
added before the tea left the cockbocse.
No allovtranco is made in barracks fcr
men of fastidious tastes. If a man pre
fers his tea unsweetened, he can go
elsewhere; the taste of the majority is
alone consulted. The tea having been
etrved out. tbe orderly man now pro
ceeds to divide the bread into chunks
one foi each man. and announces that
tho "extra" that morning is butter.
This announcement is a welcome one,
and tho I utter, being produced in its
wr.ipper nf blao canteen paper, is speed
ily divided int'i equal portions, one for
each men: her of tho mess.
boc!d any comrade bo fo nnfortnnato
as to l.o languishing in the guurdrocru,
awaiting disposal ty tbe commanding
cfTletr, tho orderly man has now to take
his allowance to him, the tea being
poured into a tin cRnteeu and the bread
and batter wrapped in paper and stowed
in a haversack.
Hat it m:iy be asked: "Surely we
have been told that goldiers enjoy mora
varifty than plain bread and butter at
their breakfasts. Have wo not heard of
6avcry kippers, of porridge yea. even
of eggs and bacon?"
True, finch are the dishes encouraged
by generals and colonels who like to
earn a repntation for looking after the
welfare of their men, bnt these fancy
relishes are not much encouraged by
Tommy Atkins, for tbe einiple reason
that his funds will not allow of his re
ceiving more than an infinitesimal por
tion of the kipper or whatever may be
the favorite breakfast dainty cf bis
commanding officer. All that the cor
poral in chaigu of the grocery book lias
to tpod daily is threepence per man iu
mess or under 4 for a company with
tho average strength of CO men in mesa.
When it is realized that with this
money tea, salt, pepper, vegetables for
dinner, flour, if a "daff" is to ornament
the dinner table, ami nil the groceries
which the eoldier needs to eke out the
rations of bread aud meat already de
scribed have to be provided, it will Le
understood that tho question of provid
ing extras for breakfast aud tea is a
difficult one to solve, aud that the cor
poral naturally prefers something like
batter, which all appreciate, to eomc
other dainty which may not appeal tc
tho tastes of his constituency.
The question of permission to many
is a burning cno in the barrack room
Only a limited number of men are al
lowed to marry, the strength of the roll
varying with the establishment of the
corps. JserReants are given permission
to marry as a matter of course, if there
is a vacancy in the establishment, but
eo soMier is allowed to enter the blessed
state unless he has seven years' service,
0 iu tbe savings bank aud two good
coudoct badges. I have heard it said
tbr.t there is such a thing as borrowing
the 0 till the necessary peruii&siou has
been obtained, but there is ? getting
over the other two conditions.
The married quarters seem comforta
ble enough. What strikes us most is the
enormous number of babies and quite
ycung children who swarm round the
door of every quarter, occasional yells
loading to tho hasty arrival cf a flashed
aud heated lucking matron to restore
ord"r iu a summary fashion. The allow
ance of space does not strike one as par
ticularly liberal, soldiers witii small
families being given only one room, with
the minutest possible scullery, tho fa
thers of larger families rejoicing in an
extra room. Sergeants, as a rule, have
two rooms, but otherwise have no pull
.over their comrades of lower rank.
Tho wives of the private Eoldicrs add
largely to the scanty pay of their hus
bands by doing washing for the men cf
their husbands' company, and twice
blessed is the woman whose good man
belcr-s to a company having few mar
ried soldiers. In this case she will be
able to get more to do than her less for
tunate sistets. Some of the women who
have a reputation as washerwomen earn
plenty of mouey by washing for the of
ficers of the regiment. The soldier's
wife seems to drift naturally into being
A little conversation with the ladies
is a liberal education in esprit de corps;
each woman thoroughly identifies her
self with the regiment to which her hus
band belongs, and even in these days of
short service it is not diCicclt to Cud
women whose fathers and grandfathers
have soldiered in bygone days under tbe
tattered colors now banging in tbe sa
cred precincts of the officeis mesa.
The ladies of tbe regiment, as a rule,
tak,e great interest in tbe welfare of
their humbler sisters, frequently visit
ing them iu their quarters and giving
more than their sympathy at one of
those crises which occur so frequently
in the married block aud generally lead
ultimately to tbe object cf their solici
tude applying for extra accommodation
owing to an unauthorized addition to
the strcugth of the battalion. "Social

I y Klcb Territory.
If a pin be placed at Denver on the
map, and another at Stockton, Cal.,
and a string be drawn from one to the
other, an air line will te marked pass
ing through the heart cf a wonderful
gold territory. Slightly to the north of
Denver in Central City, and southwest
of that city is Cripple Creek. About 30
miles to the north of the string Lead
ville will be found. In the southwest
ccraer of Colorado will appear Telln
ride, Rico and other points where gold
is mined. Marysvale, in Utah, almost
due sontb of Salt Lake City, will ap
pear to the south of the string. Fifty
miles to the north of it, near the line
between Utah and Nevada, will appear
Osceola. Deep Creek lies north of Osce
ola and on the southern edge of the
great desert west of Salt lake. Detroit
and several other rich gold camps are
almost due east of Osceola. Pioche lies
100 miles south of the string, aud the
wonderfully rich gold territory of the
Monkey Wrench district lies southwest
Now, north and south of the string
will appear dotted ou the map of Neva
da tbe gold camps of Grant, Freiburg,
Keveille, Kawich Valley, San Antonio,
Gold Peak. Hot Springs, Belleville,
Candelara and numerous others. Al
most under tho siring, in Californa. we
find Eodie, and to tho north of it Mar
kleville and other points all on tbe
eastern slope of tho Sierra Nevada
mountains. On the western slope of the
great sierras the string will be almost
on the tJtica mine, which is located be
tween San Andreas aud Sonora. North

Tbe distanco from Denver to Stock
ton is about 1,200 miles. On no portion
of the habitable globe is there a region
bo continuously and enormously rich in
gold as the territory described, and yot,
notwithstanding this fact, the progress
ive Ynnl:ee has scarcely made a start iu
opening and developing these riches,
which have been entombed for millions
of years, and which will remain so
sepulchered until we awaken to an ap
preciation of the fact that tho status of
Colorado, Utah. Nevada and California
bear within their bosoms more wealth
than ever waj dreamed of by Croesus.
I. lie Said to ttemuln I.onK After tbe
llend Is Severed.
"Tho executions in Paris during re
cent years have revived tho old question
whether death instantaneously follows
upon tho severance of the head from
the body," says tho Massachusetts Med
ical Journal. "Dr. Cinel asserts that
decapitation does not immediately affect
the brain. He says that tho blood which
flows tkftcr decapitation comes from the
large vessels of the neck, and there is
hardly any call upon the circulation of
the cranium. The brain remains intact,
nourishing itself with the blood retained
by the pressure of the air.
"When the blood remaining in tho
head at the moment of separation is ex
hausted, thcro commences a state, not
of death, but cf inertia, which lasts up
to the moment when the organ, no
longer fed, ceases to exist. Dr. Cinel
estimates that the brain finds nourish
ment in the residuary blood for about
an hour after decapitation. The period
of inertia would lat for about two
hours, ho thinks, and absolute death
would not ensue till after the space of
three hours altogether.
"If, he adds, a bodiless bead Indicates
by no movement tho horrors of its situ
ation, it is because it is physically im
possible that it should do so, all the
nerves which serve for tho transmis
sion of orders from tbe brain to the trunk
being severed; but there remains tho
nerves of hearing, of smell and sight,
and he concludes that the guillotine does
not cause instant death. If this be true,
could any other form of death be mora

"Antiquities and Curiosities of tbe
Alnmlnlnni ma Paper.
Experiments with aluminium as a
substitute fcr paper are now under way
in France. It is well known that tho
paper used today in tho manufacture of
books is not durablo.
It is now possible to roll aluminium
into sheets four-thousandths of an inch
in thickness, in which form it weighs
less than paper. By the adoption of
suitable machinery these sheets can be .
made even thinner still and can be used i
for book aud writing paper. The metal j
will not oxidize, ia practically fire and I
water proof, and is indestructible by ;
the jaws of worms.
Eauiboo grows very thriftily in Cali
fornia bottom lands, and is found to be
a very useful plant. The seed of many
species resembles rice, and is almost as
valuable for feed. Tbe stock may be
used in the building of bridges, fences
and barns and in tbe manufacture of
water pipes, furniture and boxes.

The clubman was locking particular
ly blue, and when asked by his clab
mates for the oanss, he said:
"This evening, just cfter dark, as 1
was coming down to tho club, walking
cloug, thinking cf nothing iu particular,
1 was hit iu the bark by what seemed
to be a locomotive and knocked sprawl
ing into the gutter. It whs muddy tin-re,
and when I had collected my scatteted
scutes I was all covered with dirt and
also very mad. I looked around to sco

and a safety bicycle ou tho pavement,
all tangled up. I was mad, as I said be
fore, and, without stopping to think
what I did. I took that joting man ny
the coat collar and kicked him oiT the
pavement. Theu I jumped cn tho bicy
cle, smashed all tho spokt-s cut of the
wheels and generally disfigured it."
Here the gentleman stopped, and one
of his audience said:
"Well, why should that make ycu
