A QUEER ADVENTURE.
Ono sultry day I had trampod six or
eight ralloe through tho woods to look
at my traps, and on my return to camp
felt ao warm and uncomfortable thut I
decided to take ono of tho boats, row
out into deep water, and havo a royal
bath and swim. Tho other follows
wore all up tho brook trout-fishing,
and I had tho wholo lake to myself.
I rowed out fully a milo from tho
shore, so as to got that grand sensation,
which overy udvonturosome swimmer
?can unpreeiato of floating and diving
in a hundred feot depth of water.
Those who dally near shore know noth
ing ubout this sensation. It is llko
tho sensation which an oaglo or hawk
must havo, poising und whooling, with
a mile of transparent air betwcon
itself and tho oarth. Great depth of
wator buoys a swimmer up?muk?s
hfm feel as if he had wutor wings, and
oould circle, float und ulmost sloop on
the wutor, us a broad winged bird does
in the air.
When I got into tho doopost part of
tho lake, I threw over tho sharp-cor
nered stono wo used for an anchor,
attached to its hundred foet of stout
cord, and proceeded to undress and
make my first thrilling plungo. Down,
down I wont into tho clear water, till
its elastic rosistanuo, liko a cushion,
stopped my body und drove it towuru
tho surfaco again.? As I omorgod,
blowing tho water from nostrils and
mouth, I saw that a black storm cloud
was coming up ovor tho mountuin
behind tho camp ; but as yot tho sun
shone florcoly from tho western sky,
and I had no thought of giving up my
delicious bath for a threatened thunder
I dove ropoatedly, floated, swam on
tho surfaco and beneath tho surfaco,
trod wutor and onjoyod mysolf in tho
most luxurious fashion. Finally I
started and swam a hundrod yards or
so away from tho boat, with tho inten
tion of seeing how many times I should
havo to como to tho surfaco in retrac
ing my course under wator. As I
camo up after my first dive I noticed
that that fresh breeze whieh precedes
a storm was beginning to wrinkle tho
lake with littlo waves, and deemed it
best to got back to the bout as soon as
Jiosslblo. But I was surprised to see
low much farther away tho boat looked
than when I first started to return to
it. It really scorned a quartor of a
mile off now, but supposing this to bo
merely an optical illusion, I swam on
with loisurely strokes, thinking to
roach it in a few minutes. But after
I had boon swimming for livo minutes,
and tho bout seemed, if anything
farther away than when I started, 1
bet an to suspoct something was wrong,
and forgod ahead at tho top of my
All this while tho breeze was freshen
ing, tho wrinkly waves were increas
ing to small rollers, and 1 could hear
the thunder muttering and rolling
over tho hills behind mo. Suddenly
tho truth Hashed 001*088 my mind that
tho stone anchor whieh held my boat
must have slipped from its loop and
tho boat was drifting away from mo

tossed mo to and fro.
Just as tho fury of the storm was
abating we got into shallow water and
once in a while I could feel my feet
touch bottom. I held on, however,
until the shore loomed up in sight
through the rain, and then cast off
from the bear with an audible " Thank
you, old fellow," and lot him make his
way to land first. I saw him emorge,
dripping, from the water, climb the
bank and disappear in the woods.
For several minutes, however, I stood
waiting, waist deep in water, until
tho coast could be safely clear. Finally
I vontured ashoro and lay down to get

my story, but thoy thoughf I was guy

To the heavenly mansions far above

Old Peter, standing at tho gate, in

" An editor," was my reply ; said lie,
" Come right straight in."
And then, it seemed, I started?having
nothing else to do?
A bright and spicy paper called " The
Heavenly What is New."
I ran across reporters by tho dozen,
As for printers, they applied for work

Just kept a shorthand angel interview

VAN BUHEN'S SPECIAL SESSION.
How Congress Pulled tho Country
Out of a Hole In 1S37.
On tho 15th of May, 1837, while
Grovor Cleveland was lying in IjIb
erudle an infant, lacking threo days of
being two months old, Martin Van
Buren, ono of his Now York predeces
sors in tho Presidential chair, pro
claimed a special session of Congross
for tho following 4th of Soptombor.
That session was called that provision
might be mude to allay tho financial
panic that hud commenced Immodlato
ly after Vau Buren's Inaugui'atlon,
and that such moasuros might bo
adopted as would restore public con
Tho conditions thatdomandod that ex
traordinary session wore nearly similar
to tho conditions that havo domandod
tho present extra session, though in
somo respects they uro not entirely
Thon as now tho country had ox
poiionoed u succession of "booms "In
speculative enterprises of all sorts, and
there had been a frenzy of investinont
in Western lands, in "cotton lands,"
in canals, in wild-cat banks and in all
sorts of reckless gambling adventures.
There had been a surplus in tho Gov
ernment treasury of somothing like
$40.000,000, and while this stimulated
jobbery and extravaganco on the part
of Congress, it became also a matter
of distrust to patriotic statesmen, but
no better scheme could be suggested
apparently than that of depositing it
among tho States according to their
representation in Congress.
A measure of this sort was passed in
1836, and by it tho surplus in tho
treasury was to bo delivered on deposit
to tho Stato Governments in four
instulments. Tho money was in tho
State banks, and of course had boon
more or less loaned out. Throe instal
ments were paid, but before tho fourth
was duo the banks all over tho coun
try suspended and tho crash came.
Tho Genorul Govornmont instead of
having a surplus found Itself with a
doticit, and Congress was called that
moans might bo provided to save it
It was a a group of historic statesmen
that assembled at that first session of
the 25th Congress. There were in
tho Senate Webster, Clay, Calhoun,
Beaton, Silns Wright, Buchanan,
Franklin Pierce, John J. Crittenden
and W' C. Preston, a gallant

WHO WILL BE COLLECTOR ?
An Early Decision Likely?Perry
HoeiuM to Be in the Lead
Washington, D. C, Aug 26. Special
?There is a fair chance that South
Carolina will havo a Democratio Col
lector within the next two weeks.
Tho papers for nearly all the other
States have been sent to Buzzard's Bay
for Presidential inspection and Mr.
Carlisle thinks that the papers in the
South Carolina caso will be the next to |
be called for.
Tho indications are that Ben Perry
will be tho lucky man. A strong fight
has been made against him, but he has
fought hard back. While the other
candidates havo left their cases in tho
hands of their friends, Perry has re
mained in Washington looking after
i his own interests. Next to Perry, Mr.
, Daniel Thompkins has possibly the
I strongest showing. Ho is backod by
Senator Irby. and tho President has
repeatedly said that this ofHco belongs
to tho Senators and thoy will havo tho
appointment of the man. Lucas and
Bratton have scattering endorsements,
but neither of thorn arc sufficiently
strong to turn tho Senators down.
Representative McLaurin scored a
hit with tho onomies of Cleveland in
his speech on Mend ay night. Ho
dealt with tho President with the
gloves off. Ho arraigned him for
breaking his plodgos and challenged
his Democracy. It was the most ultra
anti-Clevoland speech made sinco the
extra session opened. Tho speech was
unfortunate In one respect as Mr.
McLaurin snoko as if reprosonting the
whole State on the subject. It would
lead one to think that tho entire State
was opposed to tho President. As a
free coinage oration, however, it was
forcible and had its offect on tho
avering. Ho almod his blows well
and struck 6quaroly from tho shoulder.
Captain Shell's accident cloarly
ovinced ono thing, that ho is not only
rospectod in tho Houso but dooply
loved. There is scarcely a Representa
tive who has uot called to inquire
after his condition, and the morning
after tho accident the tenderest ex
pressions of sympathy wore hoard on
every side of the House. Captain
Shell, with tho exception of Major
Brawley, stands closer to tho Presi
dent than any othor member of the
delegation in tho House, and will got
about as much in tho way of patronage
as tho Senators thorasolvos, while his
opinions are always taken by Speakor
Crispi in all mattors pertaining to

?Hero is an original snake story
which comes from Rome, Ga. Mr.
Hughes bought a small sized rat trap
with an opening but no oxit. It was
"jhtly closed, and could hold only a
few of tho rodents. Tho first night ho
caught a good many ; tho next night
ho woko up, hearing a groat commo
tion in the trap. Ho supposed he had
ono or maybe two large sized murines,
and1 without striking a light made his
way to tho trap and pioked it up. He
could feel what ho thought was a rat,
and tondorly lot his hand Ho against
it. When he made a light he still folt
tho moving body, and glancod toward
it. As he did so ho dropped tho trap.
Whether he yelled or jumped out tho
window will ovor remain a Bocrot buri

To put it gently, ho was surprised.
What ho had so tenderly allowed to
rub him was a ground rattlesnake
With great courage and tho reptilo in

Gum Aiiabic? The moat familiar
objects about us are often leust under
stood, and probably few can answer Die
question, "What is gum arable, and
whence does it come?'' In Morocco
about tho middle of November (tbut is,
after the rainy soasou) a gummy juice
oxudos spontaneously from the trunk
and branches of the acacia. It gradual
ly thickens In tho furrows down which
it runs, und assumes tho form of oval
and rounds drops, about the size of- u
pigeon's egg, of dlTerent colors, as it
conies from the red or white gum tree.
About the middle of December the
Moors eiicump.on tho borders of the
forest, and the harvests last a full
month. Tho gum is packed in large
loather sacks, and Is transported on
the backs of camels and bullocks to
seaport for shipment to different coun
tries. The harvest occasion is made
one of great rejoicing; und for the
time being tho people almost live on
the gum, which is nutritious und fpt
tening. Such is the commercial story
of this simple but useful article.
