he is too poor to take a paper. He
is a smart man too. By getting hold
of a foreign advertising sheet he
spends one dollar writing to find out
how to keep sober, rne answer was
to take th pledge. He also sent
fifty two cent stamps to find out
how to raise beets, and receivea a
postal card in reply : ' Take hold of
the tops and pull." It was the same
person who sent fifty one-cent
stamps to a fellow In the E tst for
twelve useful household articles.
He received a dozen common

Solidity or Milk.
Many people are surprised to learn
that milk, which Is a liquid, has a
larger portion of solid contents than
have many articles of food. Milk
averages 85 per cent, of solid matter,
of which a considerable part is albu
men. It is this which coagulates
with heat, ana still more when ren
net is used. Potatoes are 80 per
cent, moisture, though when the po
tato Is cooked the starch in it ex
pands, making it seem much heart
ier food than it is. The solid of the
potato is mainly starch. That of
milk is divided between caseine,
butter fats and sugar, the last of
which is found in whey, which even
though it be sour, shows by that fact
that it has had some sugar in it.

CAPTAIN JACK'S RIFLE.
Tha National Meum I1m tbe Weapon
With Which Canbjr Wat Killed.
Ono of the most Interesting folios which
h.is been presented to the Nat ional museum
for a long time Is the rille which Captain
Jack, the. notorious Mciloo Indian, used
in his fight in the lava beds of southern
California, and it is thought to be the
Identical weapon with which Ooneral
Conby was murdered while holding a par
ley with the chief under a flag of truce.
The rifle was cached in tho lava beds
during the Modoc war, or just before the
capture of Captain Jack. It was brought
out by Modoc .Toe In tho fall of 1890. and
presented to Charles Pitt, the Indian in
terpreter of Warm Springs, Or. By him
it was given to M. C. Davis, special ex
aminer of the pension bureau, and sent by
him here from Warm Springs.
The weapon is still In a fair state of
preservation, and is of rather unusual
form. It has two bnrmls so arranged that
they can revolve, one being under tho oth
er when ready to lire, ono btouk with trig
ger and hummer doing work for tho two.
Tho clump Apparatus' has been broken, ko
that, the barrels revolve now mid could not
bo fired on this account. The ball used
to fit tho barrel is of about half an ounce.
Tho barrels nro heavily rilled, and tho
weapon Is evidently capable of doing great
execution. The barrels are untisually long,
and tho whole must weigh 10 or 18 pounds.
In tho stock, now minus paint, us if
gripped often by tho iron fingers of tho
coffee colored desperado, is a cuvity, over
which is a brass lid. In the box thus
formed were kept the "patches" and
greaso, the former to make the millets no
closely in the barrel and tho greaso to put
on them, so they could slide easily down
the cavity. Tho rifle Is a littlo rusty, but
not nearly ns much so as might be expect
ed from its long exposure.
Engraved on one sido of the barrel 1.1
the name of tho maker, John Hhuler of
Liverpool, Pa. The weapon is regarded
as an object of groat curiosity. It has not
yet been placed on exhibition. Washing
A Koytl Martyr to Etlqnette.
In Spain the etitpietto to be observed In
the royal palaces was carried to such length
as to make martyrs of their kings. There
Is a hlftorio instance. . Philip III was
gravely seated by the Are. The flremaker
of tho court had kindled so groat a quan
tity of wood that the monarch was nearly
suffocated with heat, and his grandeur
would not suffer him to rise from tho
chair. The domestics could not presume
to enter the opartment because it was
aga'lnst the etiquette At length the Mar
quis do Tot at appeared, and the king or
dered him tm dump tho fires, but he ex
cused himself, alleging that he was forbid
den by tho etiquette to perform such a func
tion, for whleh the Due d'Ussoda ought
to be called upon, as it was his business.
The duke waa gone out. The lire burned
fiercer, and the klngendured It rather than
derogato from his dignity. But his blood
was heated to such degree that ho was
