The People r ITmIiihi Veru.
Eastern Peru, th( ugh changing its po
litical title at vari us periods, has been
called the Mont an i or wooded count ry,
since the first colon - was planted there 256
years ago. The ex eriences of the early
settlers were an endless: succession of ro
mantic adventures. Towns were built and
destroyed many times, and there is scarcely
a single site which has not been bathed
with the blood of wl.ite and Indian through
centuries of conflict. Spanish and Peru
vian possession of t lis territory has conse
quently been more lominal than real until
within the last twe tty years, during which
time several of ths old mission stations
have flourished forth into cities of from
2,000 to 6,000 inhab.tants under the com
mercial stimulus g ven by the opening of
the Amazon to the flags of all nations in
Accordingly the majority of the pure
whites now living in the Montana are
either Peruvians riginally from the west
coast, or Germans-, French and English,
with two or ttirc Americans, who have
been allured into this remote corner of the
globe by the prospect of speedily amassing
fortunes in the rubber trade. These new
comers are often n ble examples of man
hood, full of that e Hirage and determina
tion which are nee Iful in establishing gov
ernment and commercial prosperity in the
midst of a somnolent and sometimes treach
erous native popt lation. Women of ap
parently equal rank are, however, conspic

Two well dress d colored men got on a
night line car g ing out South Sansom
street at 1 o'clock yesterday morning. A
they entered the car Jim said, "Here, Jake,
get the change," and handed the spruce
looking Jake a half dollar, which he at
once dropped in tl e fare lox. "What you
dodat fo', you fool? Don't you know no
better'n that? You's lost dat half dollar,
done sure." The laugh went around, and
Jake, after calling down maledictions on
the company for -etting a trap to rob him.
turned to Jim am. offered to make his loss
good. Just t hen i weary reporter entered
the cat and was a bout to put a dime in the
box when the driver prevented him and
"Pay your fare to that darky; the darn
fool put half a dollar in the box just now
Jake displayed h s ivories as he received
the coin, and aga n the laugh went around
at his expense.
At Twelfth street a benighted dude
walked up to t he box with a dime. He in
turn was told to pay it over to "that fool
nigger." Again the laugh went around
as the conductor amid, "There is ten cents
due you yet.'' Soon after one of a couple
of toughs, decked out in diamonds, cane-s
and gloves, was told to hand his fare to
the colored man. "Did you think the
traction company was getting poor that
you should otic- them a contribution;-''
said he, as he banded the colored man a
dime, and again he laugh went around at
his expense. Philadelphia Record.
A Dlajrnated Dreamier.
To induce lively dreams, an experienced
policy player of his city Was in the habit
of gorging himself just before retiring
with mince pie and Welsh rarebit. This
heavy food kept him in restless slumber
all night, and in the morning, with the aid
of an unerring policy dream book, he con
verted into niun ben the object of which
he had dreamed combining them in "sad
dles," "gigs" and "horses," and played
them for large amounts. He occasionally
made a hit, but his losses always kept far
in advance of hi ; winnings. In two years
he made such inroads on his employer's
treasury t hat h was enabled to enrich t he
policy men to tl e amount of $31,700, all of
which he had s olen from his employers
by falsifying his books. Now he dreams
without the aid of Welsh rarebit or mince
pie, a disguste 1, hopeless, heart crushed

It is a standit g puzzle to the entomolo
