METAL IS UTILIZED.
Old Horseshoes Max Reappear as Ra

Finds la the Jankshopo.
The other day I wandered Into a
large yard containing great heaps of
scrap iron and old metals of different
kinds. Workmen were sorting out the
masses of rusty, misshapen and tan
gled metals, each of which evidently
had Its particular value In the market.
I wondered what became of all the
castaway metal and what peculiar
transformations It underwent. In seek
ing some information on the point
from the proprietor of the place he
This business doesn't look as if it
possessed any elements of Interest, ed
ucational or romantic, and yet it baa
something of both of these. Now,
there's an old horseshoe. It may
vhave a Mongolian In China, though
what a Mongolian has to shave I don't
clearly see. Of course It will be con
verted first Into a razor. I ship large
ijuantities of these wornout horseshoes
and wagon tires to the Celestial king
dom to be worked up Into razors,
knives and other useful domestic arti
cles. The Chinaman enjraged in this
particular Industry gets 12 cents a day
for his labor. These horseshoes and
wagon tires are wrought Iron and are
preferred to other forms of this metal,
because they are the most conveniently
"When you go across the bridge to
the borough of Manhattan, you proba
bly notice some of the new 20 or 30
story buildings going up there and the
big iron columns anJ girders used in
their construction. You probably think
that those columns and girders are all
new metal, but it is likely that they are
not. They are scrap Iron, pure and
simple, or may be mixed with some
new "ore In the melting and recasting
of the scrap metal In the foundry or
rolling mill where all the scrap goes.
Your discarded kitchen stove may re
appear in one of the columns, or gird
ers of a skyscraper. The owners of
these lofty buildings may think they
are getting new iron material and may
pay for It, but they are probably not
getting It. Terhaps there Isn't much
difference In the durability of the re
cast metal and the new.
"When you are riding In a trolley car,
you may reflect that the metal in the
axles of the wheels and In the railroad
tracks may have formerly served In
stove grates. Such are some of the
new forms and uses which scrap metal
"We drillers alight upon some strange
finds among the old metal which we
gather. I have at home six solid
bronze plagues, as one of this class of
finds, which I wouldn't take $75 for.
I've also got at home an iron and
bronze aquarium, another of these pe
culiar discoveries, which I wouldn't
part with for $50.
"It Is curious to think how such valu
able articles get into such poor com
pany as scrap iron. Perhaps the orig
inal owners carelessly permit them to
get mixed tip with some old Junk
which they disposed of to the junk
man who brings bis collection of stock
to us, o perhaps they deliberately
throw them . away through simple
weariness of their possesion. Then,
again, the articles may possibly be
stolen and sold to the junkman.
"There are other interesting finds we
meet with in our business. Not only
the common but the finer metals, such
as Jewelry and silverware, fall' Into our
hands. Possibly you've heard your
wife remark one day that there was a
silver spoon missing, and she might
suspect that the servant has stolen It.
But the truth is the spoon has acci
dentally gone astray and passed un
noticed into the ash can or garbage
tub and in the course of time, possibly,
we pick It up out of the dumps. Many
a spoon, knife and fork with Tiffany's
or Itenedlct's stamp on it I have
bought at Barren Island after being
taken out of these dumps. Other stray
waifs in this class which I have gath
ered from the Barren island dumps
are silver pocketknlves and match
boxes, gold and silver thimbles and
cuff buttons, gold rings and a ladies'
gold purse which I sold for $20 as old
gold, v Some time ago a ring with a
transparent stone was picked out of
the dumps. A business rival of mine
Just got ahead of me In the purchase
of the ring, which be got for $10. The
stone proved to be a genuine diamond,
and the purchaser got $250 for the
ring. It looked like a ladies' engage
ment ring and the sympathetic thought
struck me that Its possibly fair owner
was at that -moment suffering 'unim
aginable distress at its loss.
"So you see," continued the dealer,
"there are a few interesting and some
what romantic features associated
with our very prosy looking business. "
Carta m Cold.
To feed a cold and starve a fever Is
a dangerous maxim. At the first sign
of a cold the patient ought to take a
rapid hot bath in a warm, well venti
lated room, then remain covered in
bed, with hot water at the feet, for
several hours. Darken the windows,
court aleep, and fast, save only from
drinking warm broth or gruel, until
unpleasant symptoms subside. Nor
should there be mental or physical
exertion. Then all the vitality can go
to restoring circulation and throwing
off that waste material wblcli, retain
ed, is absolute poison. To eat' in this
condition is to add the proverbial
straw to the camel's back. Good

Manner la Whlrh Thetr Wit Prepa
rations Were Carried Oat.
I-The ' Pretoria (South Africa) corre
spondent of the Ixmdon Times, writing
1 under date of Oct. 2, says:
"Xo sooner had last Monday's dis- '
patch been delivered than preparations
for war began in earnest and were
' carried out vigorously and speedily. ;
All day the field cornets offices were
open for the distribution of Mansers ,
and cartridges. Toward the middle of j
the week these preliminaries were got
over, and the next stage, the drafting
of the burghers up to the front, began.
There Is not much apparent method In
i the Boer preparations, but they are
wonderfully efficient in their way and
free from all- trammels of red tape.
The leading principle is that every
male old enough to carry a gun must
come out and fight when called upon
and that every article in the country,
to whomsoever it may belong, If only
it can be made to subserve some war
like purpose, can be requisitioned, or
'commandeered,' to use the Boer
phrase, at a moment's notice. Horses
4ire simply annexed from their stables
or taken out of the shafts in the
streets. The saddlers and the provi
sion merchants' stores are gutted.
Thcu horses, luggage and all are pack

ing, they somehow sort themselves out
"Never was there quite 60 wonderful
an army in its way!" Old farmers, boys
from school, members of the raad,
clerks in the government offices, shop
keepers, lawyers and what not are all
swept into the net of the 'commando.'
What sort of a fighting force this con
glomeration will make yet remains to
be seen. That the true Boers, the
country farmers, will fight well there
can be little doubt. They are splendid,
sinewy, sunburnt men, able to sjt in
the saddle all day and sleep on the
open veldt every night, crack shots
who know every Inch of their country
and know better tban any other sol
diers how to make use of cover. The
questions at issue between Great Brit
ain and the Transvaal do not concern
them. All they know Is that they
have been called out to defend their
country against the hereditary foe, and
they come out to fight for Paul Kru
ger and the republic as readily and un
questioningly as the Turkish peasant
will come out for his Padishah and
the faith of Islam. It Is with them
that' the British troops will have to
contend and contend stubbornly if
they mean to win, not with the town
Commandos of Pretoria and Johannes
burg, with the half fledged artillery or
with the small volunteer corps of Ger
mans, Hollanders and others which ru
mor has magnified to many thousands.
That they may be Iieaten has never
entered the bonds of the Boers as a
body. Mwt of them look forward to
the war as a sort of picnic party in
which they are going out to 'shoot
Ruineks.' Their idea of the British
soldier Is a rather foolhardy sort of
creature who exposes himself need
lessly, who cannot shoot straight and
who loses all courage and runs the
moment his officers are shot. To shoot
the officers Is all they intend to do.
The poor 'roolbaatje they will take
prisoner and treat kindly, as he had
nothing to do with creating the war,
excepting always any Jameson raid
ers." OLDEN TIME THANKSGIVING.

"They live up on Sheridan road, with

was too weak to stand up, and when
it lay down it looked as if It would

it and quoted Tolstoi's poignantly pa

then they went away. At noon when

With an opera glass from the upper
window she saw a pan freshly filled

an old rug laid over him, and tucked
in with awkward tenderness a roll of
carpet was pushed under his head for

It would not seem a very easy thing
to bury a snake alive, but that is what

The story is told from Forest and
The traveler was resting under a tree

some dogs near him. They would run
up to a certain spot, peep at something
and then scamper back. Looking more
closely, he saw 13 to 20 dogs about a
rattlesnake, which presently went into
one of the dogs' holes.
No sooner had it disappeared than
the little fellows began to push in dirt,
evidently to fill up the hole. By the
time they had pretty well covered the
entrance the snake stuck his head up
through the dirt and every dog scam

The snake slowly crawled to another

This time they succeeded, and com

they proceeded to beat the earth down,

work, and was surprised to find that
they had packed the earth In solid with
their noses and had sealed the snake
