The Strange Spectacle to Be Seen Where
Once at City Stood.
Away up among the sagebrush of White
Pine, far removed from the shriek of the
locomotive and only disturbed by the occa
sional prospector is a strange, silent city.
Once more than 35,000 people carried oit all
kinds of business and traffic there. It was
during the phenomenal rush to White
Pine in 1867. Many hundreds of buildings
were erected. It was a wild, new city,
which never slept, and where were enacted
all the scenes which in the telling made
Mark Twain and Bret Harte famous. This
was the story which an old White Pine
"Now, if you go there," said he, "you see
only a few of those buildings, for most of
them have fallen in and decayed. Scat
tered log cabins yet remain where moun
tain squirrels scurry to and fro at the
Bound of man's footsteps. But it is not of
this that Ltarted out to tell you, but of a
second silent city where hundreds of men
lie buried and where scarcely a headstone
marks their last resting place. The head
stones, where there were any at all, were
of wood and they quickly rotted away.
The formation all about there is largely of
limestone. Water percolating through it
partakes of the nature of lime, and this in
many cases has petrified the bodies.
"So if one were to dig here and there in
the great graveyard he would find on every
Land petrified men. In many cases they
are petrified so completely that the entire
remains, even down to the features are in
tact. The quiet graveyard, stretching over
many acres, numbers among its sleepers
all classes. There are those who died in
midwinter of pneumonia and typhoid
fever, for in those wild times men could
not take good care of themselves. Desper
adoes are there also. Numberless persons,
of all degrees, died with their boots on.
The men who came there on fortune
bent embraced all classes. There was the
hardened prospector and the tenderfoot,
the professional ruan, the farmer for the
first time turning his attention toward
mines, and the adventurer. Death settled
upon them, high and low alike. Many an
eastern family perhaps to this day are
waiting for the return of father, son or
brother. They have dropped out forever,
and there, caught by the underground ele
ments and turned to stone, they will lie
till the end of time. It is a lonely city to
visit now, but twenty-five years ago it was
a humming, roaring place, not unlike
Creede, only larger. It looks uncanny
now and I do not often visit it, but when
I do I am constantly impressed with the
uncertainty of all human affairs. Theold
wooden headstones that yet remain are ex
ceedingly suggestive." San Francisco Examiner.
A Politician's Mistake.
Senator Gray, of Delaware, tells of a poli
tician in his state who was "personally
conducting" his canvass for re-election,
and prided himself on his acquaintance
with the people of his district. Meeting a
young man whom he remembered as a re
cently fledged voter he grasped his hand
and greeted him effusively. " hy, John,
he said, "I'm mighty glad to see you. The
last time I met you you were hardly more
than a boy and now you're a man. Well,
how's Tour father?"
"Father's been dead for a year now,"
said the yonng man.
"What! Dead? Your father? I'm so
sorry, lour father and I were old friends.
I thought very highly of your father.
Well, it's what we all must come to some
day. I'm glad to have seen you again,
They parted. An hour later they met
again, rue politician nan lorgotten all
about the first meeting, lie had shaken
hands with a hundred people in the mean
time. He greeted his young constituent
with the same effusiveness. "Why, John,
I'm glad to see you." he said. "And how's
"He's still dead," said the young man.

Rapid Boats Meet.
The Gloucester schooner Dart was mak
ing her way into Boston harbor in a heavy
fog, which had shut down unexpectedly,
and had caused a great deal of grumbling
on board. The pilot, especially, was anx
ious and unhappy. Suddenly, at an early
hour in the morning, the fog lifted a little,
and the Dart's pilot saw right ahead of
him a large East Indiaman. The Dart's
helm was quickly put down, and the
schooner slid under the stern of the lare
vessel. Then the pilot's voice, husky with
fog, rose from the Dart: "Shipahoy! What
ship is that?" "Ship Reindeer, from Cal
cutta," caine the answer promptly. "How
long out?" "One hundred and fourteen
days." Tiiere was a moment's silence;
then the voice sang out from the Reindeer,
"What ship is that?" "Schooner Dart,
from Gloucester," replied the husky pilot.
"How long out?" "Out all night," came
the plaintive answer. San Francisco Ar
gonaut. The Value of Outdoor l'.-erclse.
Habitual outdoor exercise, v ith suitable
protection from extremes of weather, is
tho most effective means of prolonging life
to old age. In this age of rush and hurry,
when time is too precious to us.' for system
atic exercise and when the cultivation of
the brain too often debars the remainder
of the body from a complete development,
it is not to be wondered at that the body
succumbs to diseases which overtake it in
its prime, because it has not the vitality to
resist their inroads. Our legal authorities
would coufer countless blessings upon
"mHlions yet unborn" if they would pay
more attention to increasing the number
of public parks and places conducive to in
dulgence in outdoor sports. Youth's Com

The English custom of turning over a
residence to a bridal pair for the honey
moon is often imitated this side the At
lantic, and is considered a very proper and
elegant thing to do. Hut the lending of
houses irrespective of the bridal element is
also popular. Not infrequently persons
going abroad for the summer offer their
entire establishment to a friend for the ab

A Good Plant for Hanging Baskets.
Most plants grown in banging baskets
fail for want of water. A very good plant
for this use is othonna. It has succulent
foliage, and plants of this class get along
with less water than any other kind. It is
pretty and a great bloomer; it likes the
sunshine. Its yellow flowers are as cheer
ful as dandelion blossoms are. Exchange.
