UNWATER1NG AN OLD MINE.
American Enterprise Dolor a Work
In Mexico Planned by Hnmboldt.
An Interesting mining operation is
lx:nj completed this month (December)
in the fJuanjnato district, famous as
the richest mining territory in Mexico,
in untvatering the Sirena gold mine,
which, after being worked by the Mexi
cans binoe the year 155U. has been
flooded and abandoned ever since the
Mexican war of independence in 1822.
says the New York Sun. There are at
least nine miles of workings In the old
mine, and it has taken two years" labor
nith powerful electric pumps to re
move the water already In the work
ings and to fight the Incoming flow. It
was 1,000 feet deep when the work
began. Recently it was less than 400
Just how much of the workings re
mains to be uncovered and what there
is in and beyond them no one knows.
Record keeping and chartmaking
were done in very primitive fashion
by the old Mexican miners. As the
clearing of the mine has prospered
curious relics havp come to light. In
one place, far below the water level.
ihe explorers came ujMn a stable half
full of skeletons of mules and men who
had leen cn tight there by the rising
flood. Life is cheap in Mexico, and no
one could be found who remembered
ever having heard that anybody had
been missed in the mine.
The Sireua la the first of the old
uilties in the district to be un watered.
The project is carried out by a New
York company, and it Indicates the
new channel in which modern mining
methods in the old districts run. The
company counts on making an imme
diate profit by going over the old work
ings and treating the ore out of which
the Mexican miners with their nude
power and hand labor could obtain no
paying results. Electricity Is being
used where mule power failed, and
when the water is all out of the mine
the workings will be driven deeper
than the Mexicans could ever have
dreamed of operating them.
The same method is now being un
dertaken in other parts of the district.
A crniaii syndicate lias acquired the
famous YaleiK'iana mine in the same
vein. (Hit of which many millions have
been taken by the Mexicans. Another
mine in the Vet: vein, which runs
through the district, yielded the king
if Spain 17. mum o in royalties. The
tin watering of the mines has been dis
cussed since the time of Humboldt,
who hail a project for doing it by driv
ing a Umnil 12 miles long into the
vein, but it is only now that American
enterprise has given a start to the
NEW GAME IS LIKE GOLF.
4l)l ( rixiiirl (he Fail Anions Offi
cer at M nttliington ai Yard.
Much Interest Is being shown iu a
new outdoor game called gold croquet,
which was begun by the officers of the
Washington navy yard to console them
selves for being unable to play golf,
says the 'Ievol:ind 1'lain Iealer. Re
cently a visit was made by the cele
brated golf expert. Harry Vnrdou. who
played the game and said ho consider
ed it an excellent game, full of interest
and a good thing to keep a mau in trim
The game is played similarly to golf,
using croquet wickets instead of the
holes and a wooden ball about the size
of a baseball, but light and tough. In
stead of a variety of clubs out' long
handled mallet is used, one end being
plain and the other chamfered off so
as to lift or "loft" the ball when nec
essary. This avoids the necessity for
caddies, and as the ball is light and
tainted white it can hardly get lost at
all. As the game can be plavod on any
large lawn or grounds it is likely to
have considerable popularity among
professional men whose hours of recre
ating are limited to two or three hours
before dinner. It will also be likely to
take with soldiers and schoolboys hav
ing large grounds to play on.

TAKING IN MR. MOODY.
How His Confidence Was Abased by
the Natives of Bethany.
When It. L. Moody went to Bethany
during his travels in the east, he was
very soft hearted over all the multi
tude of beggars there, not only because
the place is so unusual, but because he
was moved by its beautiful traditions.
He gave quantities of "backsheesh''
and then asked If any of the children
had the names of Mary and Martha.
Yes. Indeed, they had. And that open
ed his pockets again.
The news of his generosity spread
through the village, and new claim
ants came until his visit seemed likely
to result iu a tight for existence. The
case was getting desperate, and he
told the dragoman to caH for silence
while he made an address. Then he
"I have come 0.00 miles to see this
little village of Bethany. It was a
place my Master loved to visit, and I
have come o see it because he loved
it. 1 am very glad to meet you all. but
now I want to be alone. I have no
more backsheesh, and I bid you good
by." A line looking boy of 1(5 replied to the
address. He sjtoke fluently and with
the grace of an orator. Mr. Moody
was delighted with the begiuuiug of
his oration, but not with its conclusion.
"Wo are glad to see the gentleman
ami his friends who have come so far,
but the gentleman must uot think that
his actions arc equal to the importance
of his visit. Six thousand miles is a
long way to come, and the gentleman
must have sacrificed much to make the
visit. Iu consequence it is natural for
us to expect that lie would be muniti
cent in backsheesh. This he has not
been, and we now' expect that he will
give us a great deal more."
Mr. Moody was so disgusted that he
abandoned the situation entirely and
hurried away with his friends.
I did think." said he. "that boy had
a soul above backsheesh."
"And did you think, too. thai some
of the children were named Martha
and Mary';" he was asked.
"Certainly. Why not?"
Nothing: only they were all boys."
A 5-year-old boy went with his moth
er to make a call. The lady of the
house, v ho was fond of children, told
him she meant to ask his mother to let
her have him. "'Don't you think your
mother would let me buy you?" she
"No. ma'am." answered the little
fellow; "you haven't got money
"How much would it take?" she con
tinued. "Three hundred dollars," said the boy
promptly, as if that would settle the
matter at once for all.
"Oh. well, then," said the woman, "I
think I can manage it. If I can, will
you come and stay with me?"
"No. ma'am," he said, with decision.
"Mamma wouldn't sell me anyhow.
There are rive of 11s, and mamma
wouldn't like to break the set." Buf

The nervous system plays an important part in the economy

Every organ in the human system is controlled by nerves,
all our impressions are received through the nerves. Without
nerves there would be no human existence; with poor nerves,
overworked nerves, overtaxed nerves, or broken down nerves,
existence is miserable, sometimes terribly miserable. Nervous
prostration visits many; it is an affliction that can be avoided even
though tbe nerves are weak and easily irritated.
