Women as Prospectors.
The excitement caused by tho discov
ery of precious metals in tho Jlocky
Mountains has induced women us well
as men to brave the fatigues and ex
posure necessary to develop a new
country. Among the women who have
become prospectors aud miuers can be
chronicled Mrs. Josephine Smith , of
Summit County. Mrs. Smith with her
husband , became a resident of Kokomo
in its days of booming prosperity.
Later , when the town took u backward
turn , and business in the barber shop
became dull , Sirs. Smith resolved tr
try her luck in the hills , and started
out with a picfc and shovel , believing
that she had as much brains and min
ing sense ns any of the multitude who
had tried their fortunes in searching for
tbo precious nietals on the slopes of the
continental divide. She toiled early and
late , clad in miner's costume , with boots ,
mittens , and waterproofs , and was re
warded by finding promising prospects
nn tho Ten Mile Range , Buffalo Mbun-
Uiu , aud lied Peak , all in Summit
County , north of the Ten Mile aud west
ot theI > lue. Xexfc it was necessary to
develop the claims , and while the hus
band worked in the barber shop tho wife
secured tho nssistauce of some practical
miners and some limited capital to de
velop tho clnitns she had discovered.
In all these efforts the husband aud
wife have been succv.ssftil. They have a
iine body of claims near Frisco , about
the center of Summit County , which
they expect to work during the next
year. At present Mr. and Mrs. Smith
are conducting a barbershop.
This is one of the most conspicuous
examples of woman being engaged in
mining in Colorado , doing the practical
work of prospecting and mining , al
though many women have invested in
mining stock. It is an illustration of
what can be done by energy and deter
mination inn good cause. Denver fiepnb-
Pressed to Death.
In early times it was considered that
criminals accused of felony could not be
properly tried unless they consented to
the trial by pleading and putting them
selves on the country. After reading the
indictment to him the question was put :
"How say you are you guilty or not
guilty ? " If he said "Xot guilty , " the
next question was , "Culprit , how will
you bo tried ? " To which the piisoner
had to answer : "By ? iod and my coun
try. " If he willfully omitted either por
tion of that answer he was said to stand
mute , and a jury was s\vorn to say
whether he stood mute of malics or
mute by the visitation of God. If they
found him mute of malice , that wns
equivalent to pleading guilty in cases of
treabon or misdemeanor ; but in cases of
felony he was condemned , after much
exhortation , to the pcine forte et dure
that is , to be stretched naked on his
back , and to have iron laid upon him , "
as much as he could bear , nod more ,
tind so to continue , fed upon Dad bread
nnd stagnant water on alternate day.s ,
till he either pleaded or died. Tnis
strange rule WHS.not . abolished until
1772 , when standing mute in cases of
felony was made equivalent to a convic
tion. A case actually occurred as late as
172G , when one Burnwater , accused at
Kingston Assizes of murder , refused to
plead , and was pressed for an hour and
three-quarters , wth nearly100 weight
of iron , after which he pleaded not
guilty , and was coavicted and hanged
In 1058 a ilnjor Straneways v/as vressecL
to death. The object of refusing to
plead was that , as in that case there was
no conviction , no forfeiture took place ,
and the property of the accused person
was thus preserved for his heir.
Where S3ie Drew the Line.
A very thin woman had felt the power
of the bpirit and lincl l-een convertec1 ,
and she appeared before the session to
pass the preliminary examination.
"Have you experienced a change of
heart ? " asked tLe elder , gently.
"Yes , sir , I believe I have. " j
"And you want to live a new life ? " j
"Yes , sir , I hope I do. " j
"Arc you willing to renounce the |
world , the llesh aud the devil ? " j
"Do I have to do that ? "
"Certainly , if you would ha a consist
ent Christian. ' ' '
"Can't I give up two of them and still
go iuto the chureli ? "
"No , the renunciation must be com-
' lete. "
' 'Well , then , you must excuse me. I '
want to bo a Christian , I want to give up j
the world aud the devil , but if : i woman '
ai thin already as I am has to jyive up \
any ui'oro. llesh , she might as well give ,
up wanting to bo n Clni.stian , and go i

dusty and worn out. "When I got to my !

who wanted me to talk and he received ,
and all that sort of thing before I had a
chance to get Hie saud out of inv face.
One fellow was persistent. He asked
me , with pure American cariosity , what
I thought of Texas. In a moment of (
worry and annoyance I said if I owad ]

An Englishman's First Kcgro Ac
I mention this ineal , not only because
it was the first of which I had partaken
for about thirty hours , but because it
was the means of myfirstlintroduction to
a colored gentleman. lie did me the
honor to wait upon me , after n fashion ,
while I was eating , and with every word ,
look and geshife marched mo iurther
iuto the country of surprise. Ho wns , in
deed , strikingly unlike the i > > pioes of
Mrs. Beecher Stowe or the Cliri.y Min-
Vrelsof myyouth. Imagine a , gentleman ,
certainly somewhat dark. but. of u pleas-
oat warm hue , sneaking English with a
eiight and rather foreign accent , every
inch a man of the world , and armed with
manners so patronizingly Mipenor that
I aia at a loss to name their parallel in
England. A butler , perhaps , rides as
high over the uubtitlered , but then he
sets you right with u reserve and a sort
of sighing patience , which ouo is often
moved to admire. And again , the ab
stract butler never stoops to familiarity.
But the yolored gentleman will p iss you
a wink at a time ; ho is familiar , like an
upper-form boy to a fag ; he unbends to
yon like Prince Hal iith Ptnns and
Falstnff. He makes himself athomeaud
welcome. Indeed , I may sny , this waiter
behaved himself to me throughout tli'at
supper much ns , with us , a youn < r , free
and not very self-respecting mastei
behave to chamber
might a good-looking
maid. I had come prepared to pity the
poor negro , to put fiiin at his ease , to
prove in a thousand condescensions that
I was no sharer in the prejudice of race ,
but I assure you I put iny patronage
away for another" occasion , : md had the
grace to be pleased with that result.
Seeing he was a very honest fellow , I
consulted him upon a point of eticpiette :
if one should offer to tip the American
waiter ? Certainly not , he told mo.
Never. It would not do. They consid
er themselves too highly to accept. They
would even resent the offer. As for him
and mo , we had enjoyed a very pleasant
conversation ; he , in particular , had
found much pleasure in my society ; I
was a strauge'r ; this was exactly one of
those rare conjunctures. . . Without
being very clear seeing , I can still per
ceive the sun at noonday ; and tho colored
gentlemen deftly pocketed the quarter.
Why Sot 3
Give your employes a vacation. It is
a cheap charity. It gives them much
and costs you nothing. A full man can
do more in fifty weeks than a lean man
can do in filty-t\-o. "All work and no
play makes Jack a dull boy , " is a motto
us applicable to J ack of forty as at four
or 1'uurteen , and ns applicable to Gill as
to .Jack. Every inr.cliine needs a vaca-
tion now and then ; the fires let out , the
v ater let out , the boiler a chance to re
ps ir. The ovgau needs to be tuned. The
watch needs to be cleaned. Even the
iron furnrce cannot run forever. The
ngrieultunsfcs have proved that as much
\\hu-at can be gotten off a piece of laud
in twenty years if it lies fallow every
alternate year as if it is coaxed to give
wheat every season. The cow cannot
give milk continuously. Your horse
will do better for taking off his
shoes and running in pasture for a week
or two every twelve months. Lymau
Beecher's recipe is a wise one for all
workshops "Let uater caper. "
This advice is just as applicable to
tho house servant as to the shop work
man. Bridget will'get you a bettor din
ner if for one day you get your own.
Picnic for a week and see how jolly it is.
Go back to primitive days and do your
own serving ; it is astonishing how
.simple your tabteswill become when you
have to satisfy them youiself. Send oil
all your servants lor a day's rollicking ,
and find out what sort of a housekeeper
your oldest daughter is.
Of course , it involves some self-denial.
Tnat is the blessing of it. "When your
servants find that you are willing to put
yourself out for them they will put
themselves out for you. There is only
one currency that can buy enthusiasm
consideration ; and enthusiasm is like
rhanty , it cover.no ! it compensates
for u multitude of sins.
Of course , workmen do not all know
hmv to use a holiday. Sometimes they
HV it to make beasts of themselves.
Tiiev attempt a practical demonstration
of Darwinism , and supply the "missing
link. " Jf they had a holiday oftener
i Ley would know better what to do with
: t. It ia the man who is worked like a
o'jast who is most likely to drink like a
beast. Treat u man like a man and he
vill prove himself a man.
Why not ? Christian Union.

on Arkansas Colonel to hi friend t'ne

Several days afterwards the Colonel
again met the General. ' 'Hello , Gen

'Your blamed joke. You know you
