THEY DEFY IMITATION.
Saventlon Can Supply No Subetitutge Wov
. Whalibone or Teasel.
With all our boasted labor' saving
machinery and modern inventions there
are numerous articles entering into the
economy of manufacture which seem
crudo and simplo, but which defy im
provenient.
No one, for instance, has ever been
able to find a substitute for whalebone.
With tho'diminution of the supply and
the enormously increased cost of the ar
ticle, ecores of inventors have turned
their attention. to the article and at
tempted to supply a substitute, but up
to the present time nothing as durable,
tough and pliable as whalebone has re
sulted.
Another article without which no
woolen manufacturer could prepare
certain goods for the market is the tea
zel. It is absolutely essential in rais
ing a nap on cassimeres and soft wool
en fabrics, and although scores of imi
tation toazles have been invented none
is found to give the satisfaction of the
odd little burr, with its stiff little
hooks, which is so extensively exported
and cultivated for the cloth finishing
trade.
Persons who have never soon a toazol
can imagine a fur cone, set all over
with little barbs. It is really a burr,
or flower head, or thistle top of the
plant dipsacus, and so identified is it
with cloth dressing, and so long and so
general has been the use of the teazol
for the purpose mentioned, that it ie
even reflected in its botanical name,
Dipsacus fullonum, or "fuller's toazol.'"
However familiar the teazel may be
to persons familiar with woolen manu
facture, or to those who live in coun
tries where it is extensively cultivated,
the fadt remains that the great major
ity of persons have never heard of such
an article and will be astonished to
learn in whaf enormous quantities they
are raised.
In France alone 0,000 acres of land
are exclusively devoted to the cultiva
tion of the tenzel. French manufac
turers use annually nearly $2,000,000
worth of the prickly heads and export
during the sano period upward of 60,
000 tons, valued at $2,500.00. - When
it is considered that a tenzel weighs not
more than an ordinary burdock, the
vast quantity exported can be realized
in part.
In addition to the French crop, which
is the most highly esteemed, teazels are
producied in enormous quantities in
Austria, England, Belgium, Poland
and tho Crimea. Until recently they
did not grow satisfactorily in the Unit
ed States, but now they are quite ex
tensively grown in Oneida county, in
this state, and possibly elsewhere, and
it is said return a fair profit to the cul
tivator for the outlay of monef.
The prickles of the toazol have a
small knob at the end, and this mount
ed on an elastio stem, and sot with
great precision on the central spindle,
which, revolving, claws the surface of
the cloth, raises a nap which mechan
ical contrivances have always failed in
equaling.-New York Herald.
Eccentricity In Literary Taste.
Curious whims are occasionally shown
by readers at the Public library. There
wasi a woman who regularly every Fri
day onme for a volume of sermons. Sho
did not mind whose sermons, nor what
the subject, so long as they were reli
gious discourses of some sort. Monday
she would come back, return the ser
mons and take out a novel to unbend
her mind until the next Friday, wvhen
the sermons would again be in demand.
There was another woman who would
never read anything but a religions
novel, as she called it, not such a one
as "Ben-Hur" or one with a particular
religious tenet- to Inculcate, but a book
with a clergyman an its chief charactor.
Swinburne's "Heavenly Arcana"
was rend daily for years by an eccen
tric old gentleman. Ho would draw
the book, keep it two weeks, return it
with his place marked and call early
the next morning to take it out again.
He never took any other book from the
library, ad finally died, leaving his
place marked as usual. There Is one
old man who will never read a book
written by a wonman. Ho reads good
books continually, but will have noth
ing to do with a volume bearing a wo
man's name as its author. -Boston
Herald.
One of the Paine Anecdote.
A volume could be made of the good
stories in which the venerable Henry
W. Paine, wvho ended his long life here,
is the central figure. Mr. Paine un-.
dloubtedly knewv more law than many
of our judges. Hie himself had declined
a seat on the supreme bench of his native
state of Maine and again when Gov
ernor Bullock tendered him the succes
sion to Chief Justice Bigelow in Massa
chiusetts. But lie was not arrogant of
his learning, and It is only as illustrat
ing his perennial humor that the story
is told of him, how, when seen reading
a lawbook on a street car, a friend
said, " What! Mr. Paine, you rending
law?" "Bless your soul, no!" was the
reply; "this is not law; it is a volume
of supreme court decisions. "--Boston
Commonwealth.
The Advantage of Light Head.
"I come of a very old family," boast
ed l3atkins as the party sat around the
fire at the club lying about their an
cestors.
"1 supp~oso they were in the ark with
Noah,"' sneered Smith, wvho affects to
despise thoso who claim a long litie of
ancestors.
"They didn't have to get into the
ark,'" interrlited Simpson, who dis
likes hatkinis; "the family is so light
headed they floated like corks."
Then Smith touched the button, and
by his presence of minid prevented a
riot.-Philadelphi a Call.

SHOOTING HONKERS.
3REAT SPORT WHICH IS F'OUND IN
THE NORTHWEST.

twoen the itod River Valey and the BlsI
sisnippl--Shooting Does Not Appear to
Diniash Their NPunuber.
Wild 1,oos0 hunting on the plains of
the northwest is a sport which always
bas 'great charm even for the experi
mneed Nimrod. It is a sport replete
with incident and a recreation which
must once be indulged in to be thor
)ughly appreciated. The wild gooso is
known in all parts of North America,
but in no section of the country does
his bird appear in such numbers as in
that territory lying between the Red
river valley and the Missouri river.
rhore the geese swaim in countless
aumbers and beconio corpulent on the
grains of No. I hard which have been
shaken from thestalk by thareaper and
are lying in the stubble everywhere.
Largo numbers of the birds are killed
by resident hunters And* for eastern
tuarkots, but no apparent diminution is
aoticoablo in the size and number of
the flocks to be seen when the shooting
ieason begins each year.
An hour's lively sport with the hon
kors on the wheatfields of North Da
kota moans but one thing to the inex
porienced hunter, and that issomething
lor his pains, especially if ho happens
to got in a well concealed stand direct
ly in the line of flight. Then it is noth
ing uucommon for him to "tumble
over" a wagon load of geese in very
short order. Wild geese are a staple
omnodity in North Dakota and road.
ily bring frnon $2.50 to $3 per dozen
luring the shooting season. In the lit
tlo towns and stations along the North
Erii Pacific railway, during the fall and
spring flights, almost everybody turns
out for a fow hours in the morning and
toward the close of the day to shoot at
the geese, and a right warm reception
are the birds treated to. 'iany will
ride to the outskirts of tho' town and
shoot from a buggy or wagon at the
passing myriads overhead and occasion
ally bring down a bird at long range.
Tho hunter who is out for business
and is shooting for market and the
money there is in it drives out 10 or
15 miles over the prairie neveral hours
before daylight, and Zfter seleLting a
spot whero the geeso have been soon in
great nuimbers the day beforo digs a
pit in the ground large enough to con
ceal himself and arranges the stubble or
grass about the mouth of it so as to pro
sent a natural appearance. Close by
he plants his decoys and settles back in
the pit and anxiously awaits the corn
ing of the morning. It is still dark,
but from every quarter of the prairio
come sounds of animal life which fore
tell the coming of a now day. The
mournful cry of the curlew is heard
overhead, and a flock of plover demon
strate their closo proximity by the hur
tling noiso of their wings.
For some time ho sits in a cramped
position, listening to the booming notes
of a prairie chicken, which bird Is. pour
Ing forth a volume of drumlike sounds.
Thesharp yelp of a coyote not faraway
Is unmistakable evidence that that
thriving, skulking animal has jumped
3p a cotton tail and is hustling for an
iarly breakfast. At the first peeping of
the gray dawn the hunter suddenly
wears a welcome sound-the faint and
~araway honk-honk of the goose. He
3xamines his gun and notes the dirco
:ion of the sound. Nearer and nearer
:he sound comes, and finally he yen
:ures to take a peep out of the pit and
liscovers the distant outlines of a largo
lock spread out V shaped in the morn
ng sky, bearing of?' to one side. Ap
iarently they have miot seen the decoys,
md the hunter thinks it is yet too dark.
Suddenly tho leader is seen to waver,
mud with loud cries the flock turns and
sircles around the decoys as if suspi
>ious of their genuineness, but drawing
nearer at each turn. They have ap
roac hed withbin easy shooting distance,
mdl just as sooii as the flock pitches
lowni among the decoys the loud bang!
bang! of a heavily loaded shotgun is
beard, and two puffs of smoke are seen
ooming apparently from the surface of
the earth a short distance away. 8ev
oral goose are lying on the ground, and
one is skimming away over the prairie
with a tipped wing.
Some other flocks appear, and the
shooting becomes lively until the sun
is fully two hours high, when the flecks
diminish, both in size and number, and
with the exception of a few stragglers
the morning flight is over.
Crystali Springs is the name of a small
station en the Northern Pacific, 110 miles
wvest of Jamestown, N. D. There are
several small alkali lakes in close prox
imity to the station and a number of
springs in the hills near by, from which
tihe place gained its name. The town
proper consists of a -depot, boarding
housE andl water tank and a population
not exceeding 10 souls. One April
morning a few years or so since the
wvriter, in company with the telegraph
operator at the place, sallied forth in
quest of gooeo, large flecks of which
were seen circling aroind and alight
ing on a snmall lake, fringed with bushes
and tall gensa, not over a mile from the
station. After a full hour spent in
crawlhing over the ground and keeping
out of sight as much as possible the.
hunters crept through the grass3 to the
bushes and looked cautiously out.
Upward of 1,000 geese wvoro sporting
an the water, diving, ,squawking and
Darrying on at a great rate, When the
edgo of the flock -had come within 80
yards the hunters t ised their guns and
gave them a barrel, following it up with
tlme remaining barrel as they rose heav
ily from the water, Twenty-eight geese
woere gathered up as the result of the
shot, 2.1 of them the white or brant
geese. Tho remaining four were fine
specimnens of that wariest of all birds
of its species--tho blackhead or Cana
dian goose. 'The morning's work was
highly satisfactory.--Cleoland Leader.

A LIVING MUMMY.
S Traveler Tell. of One He Found In an
EgyPtian Domielle.
"We wont into the hut after some
iesitation-tho dragoman whispered
here woro,.ladies there-and found a
vigorous old man, tolling his Mussul
man beads crosslegged on a mud bench,
md on the floor bont over the fire tho
aldest looking human being I ever saw
alive.
"Mummies I have seen, and wondered
pot that they were dead, but in what
part of her withered desiccated frame
that old woman found space to keep the
stern vital energies that lined her grim,
carved face I can scarcely guees. She
looked no more living than seaweed
loes, dried and stretched on paper. Her
arms, her legs-thrust almost into the
Bro-were so shrunk that the long
leathern flesh and flaccid muscles hung
round thom liko dangling shreds on
sticks.
"Round her neck were beads of
wood, and round her wrists leathern
bracelets-though, to be sure, I cannot
fool certain they were not folds of skin
-and on her faco lurked not only lines,
but gullies and passages, they seemed
io deep and fallen. But for the occa
ilonal upturned glance of her cold, un
questioning eye I could not have sup
posed her anything olseo than one of the
earliost and best preserved of tho re
motest queens of Egypt.
"The old man gave us a lusty wel
come and sent for milk and datos and
illed our pockets. Ho showed us his
long spear that hung against the wall
and told me with a proud gesture that
he had often killed his man, but more
often with a sword, and taking me by
the shoulder showed me fiercely how
lio used to do it. Ho was 00 years old
Rnd had never boon farther from home
than Assonan, and then only once.
"All his sons sat and stood round us,
and in the background against the mud
granary whito teeth glimmered and the
broad, black faces of the women shone.
I asked him what present ho would
like, and he asked for a little rico and
a little coffee. All tho timo he clutched
and fingered his Muslim rosary, which,
when I admired, he wanted me to ac
cept. The son caie back with us to
the dahboa and carried off the coffee
and rico in envelopes, to which I add
ed a handful of cigarettes and a couple
of oranges, with particular injunctions
that one was to bo givo to the old gen
tleman."-Cornhill Magazinue.
A Weird Love Story.
"The strangest test of will power and
endurance ever mado, " said E. D. Gon
sauls of the City of Mexico, at tho
Southern, "was in Mexico, the charac
ters being a Mexican girl and an Amer
ican man. They were lovers, and the
girl's parents refused their consent to
the union, insisting that sho should
marry a wealthy Mexican suitor. At
the suggestion of the girl they agreed
to dio together, and to test the strength
and endurance of each other's love
they chose a means of suicide unlike
any over dreamed of before. Food
and fruit were placed on a table in the
center of a room, occupied by both, the
girl having escaped from her home, but
being unwilling to olope with her lover.
It was agreed that they should starve
to death with plenty beforo them, and
should either succumb to nature and
partake of tho food then both were re
leased from the bond of death, but thero
should be an everlasting separation. For
12 days they endured the pangs of hun
ger without a murmur or a thought of
wavering from their purpose to die to
gether. The twelfth day the father of
the girl discovered her whereabouts,
and breaking the door they were car
ried out, too faint to stand alone. It
took them several days to recover their
strength, and when they did they woero
married. This is a true statement, and
the American is living with his Mex
ican wife today."-St. Louis. Globe

Counterfeit Coins.
Within the last few years numbers of
forgeries of extremely rare coins in the
British nmuseumn and in private collec
tions have been sold by auction in Lon
don. So good is their execution that it
seems probable .that means have boen
devised for casting steel dies on plaster
casts or of hardening electrotype dies.
The manufacture of rareo"siege pieces,."
carried on in one of our midland towns,
shows a far lowver amiount of skill.
When genuine but defaced coins are
restruckc with new impressions, it is
very difficult to discover the fraud.
Some genuine ancient coins are su rf rap
poes in this manner--as, for instance, a
whole class of Jewish coins which are
struck on Roman silver denarii. But
when the image and superscription of
William I11 can be discerned underly
ing the device on a rare crown picce of
Elizabeth the question of its authentic
ity Is soon solved.-Longman's Maga
The Law of theoJungle.
The law of -the jungle, which never
orders anything without a reason, for
bids every beast to eat man except when
lie is killing to show lis children howv
to kill, and then he must hunt outside
the hunting grounds of hisa pack or
tribe. The real reason for this Is that
man killing means, sooner or later, the
arrival of white men on elephants, with
guns, and hundreds of browni mon with
gongs and rockets and torches. Then
everybody in the junigle suffers. The
reason the beasts give among them
solves is that man is thme weakest and
most defenseloss of all living tiings,

Course of Study tor the Pcblic
Schools.
At a late meeting of the Stato
Board of examinors Professor Mc
Cain, of Duo West was appointed
to prepare a courso of study for
the public schools of the State.
The work has boon completed.
Professor McCain prefaces the
course with the following romarks:
The State Board of Examiners
fools that there is need of a graded
course of study in the public
schools of South Carolina. Un
dor the present system each school
is left to itself and as teachers are
ofton young and experienced, it
could not be expected that they
would be ablo to arrange a course
in such a way ao t-accomplish the
bost results. They have no dobt
dono the bost they could under the
circumstances, but if they had a
courso outlined for them they
could have done still hottor work,
and the childron could have made
still bottor progress.
Other States have adoptod some
such plan as the ono hero prepar
ed and they are most highly plonis
od with the results. It gives more
uniformity to tho work of the
cho .
If socuros the regular progross
of t io pupil from yoar to yoar,
whethor under the samo or under
difforent teachors. It gives to the
various studios their proper place
and emphasis, and thus provents a
chango or a more ropotition of
studies when a now teacher takes
chargo of a school. It. enables t ho
pupils to study with miuch more
intorost as it sots 1ofore thin a
dofinito end to ho completod.
As the conditions vary somo
what in difloront localities, it is
expected of courso that it will
sometimos he necessary for the
teachor, in the oxerciso of his judg
mont, to make some changes in the
plan in order to adapt it to the
special needs of his school.
It is recognized that the longth
of thle school tornm is not tio saei
overywhoro. Avorago timo, how
ever, is about three and a half or
four months. In two years thoro
foro the childron of tho public
schools recoivo about the siime
amount of instruction as is rocoiv
ed in town or city schools whore
the session is usually about eight
nmonths long. Accordingly in this
course of study two school years of
about four months each are taken
together as if they constitutedl one
sessioni of about emight muon ths.
Schools that run f'or a longer or a
shorter p)eriod than four months
can comp~lete more or loss of the
course in one year.
T1he patrons of each school are
earnestly advised to supplemeont,
whenever it is possible, the public.
funds in order that the schools
may everywvhero be open for eight
months each year.
The rest of the article, which
coverns twenty-five legal cap pages
of manuscript, suggests a course of
study and is filled, in the form of
an essay, with suggestions andl ad
vice to the teachers ini minute de

That part of the article is of ini
