A Hasty Jmlsincnt.

rboarded tho car at Atwood street. He
staggered along tho aisle and finally
managed to get hold of a strap, to which
bo clung in order to steady himself.
" You're rjglit, answered the ono art-
dressed; 'tuo conductors ougut to iseep
them off tho cars."
MHmiwhiln (lie man was cbauciiiK his
hold on tho strap from one hand to the
other. Ho looked down, with his eyes
half closed, and when somu of the'pas
seugers wanted to leave the car ho seem
ed to pay no attention to them, for he
did not move out of their way. At the
Larimer avenue bridge tho car came to
a stop. Xho man seemed to realize thai;
lie was at his destination, for while he
had not motioned to the conductor he
began to go toward tho door. The con
ductor helped him out and after seeing
bun safely on tho sidewalk returned to
his car. Turning to i passenger who
had been an interested spectator, ho
said: "Isn't it a pity to be blind? That
gentleman lives in the honso on the cor

Experiments made recently by scien

Standard, have developed a somewhat
curious and unexpected fact namely,
that certain persons possess a magnetic
polarity that is, tiny aro found to act
after thu manner of maguots, having,
in fact, north and south poles. In such
a case the individual, on being com
pli tcly undressed and placed near a sen
sitive galvanometer, will, when turned
en a vertical axis, cause a deflection,
first in one direction and then in the op
posite, just as a magnet will do. It is
not assumed that all persons possess tint
p' larity, but in the case of Professoi

periment was tried, tho phenomenon
was unmistakably exhibited, it beinjJ

HOW SAMUEL HARRIS OF CALIFORNIA
WON THIS TITLE.
lie Now Controls the Pearl nnd Pearl
Shell Market of Annrlra miil Europe.
An Interesting Trade With Natives of
It Is not generally known that ono
single niorchaut, a young California!!.
83 years of ago, controls tho pearl and!
pearl shell market of America and Eu
rope This monarch of tho pearl trade
is fc'amuel Harris. Ho operates in tho
Pacific oeeou, and ho has built up an
astounding commercial reputation in
tho courso of eight years. Thero are
plenty of cattle kings in the west nnd
wheat kings iu tho east and money
kings everywhere', but there is only one
pearl king, nnd that is Harris. Thou
sands of rare, translucent gems aro
brought to this country shipped to
Europo by his agents. Ho eleals in
mother cf pearl shells by tho ton, and
tho maguitudo of his transactions has
mado tho private mark of Harris
namely, a diamond inclosing a large H
a seal of international importance and
a guarantee) of geuuino kingship.
Harris gathers his gems exclusively
in tho Society islands. For eight years
ho has mado theso Pacific laud spots the
field of his interesting business. It was
on tho shores of Tahiti that first ho
earned his title of king. After repeated
transactions with the natives whom he
employed in pearl fishing ho stimulatod
them from passivity to groat activity,
gaining their coniideuco and trust by
honest and reliable barter. IIo never
mado promises to them that ho did not
keep. He paid them iu full tho price
which they demanded. Himself a fin
ished critic, a connoisseur, ho never
permitted them to overvalue a pilo of
shells, nnd they grew to admire him.
Ho controlled tho situation at Tahiti.
Ho was easily king.
It is said that Harris has been a lover
of theso delicate gems since his boy
hood. Pearls have always been to him
tho most mysterious, the most wonder
ful, tho most beautiful handiwork of
nature To him, gifted with an artistic,
idealistic temperament, they appealed
in a romantic, poetic .way. To him each
translucent globule seemed like a tear
from tho weird eyes of an earth be
witched mermaid. They were silent to
kens of tho water maid's grief, she who
perhaps pined for n terrestrial lover.
Finally young Harris took a pleasure
voyago to too distant Society isles and
saw what madu his enthusiastic eyes
hulgo in their sockets. He saw nativo
children playing along tho sands with
tho richest pearls ho had ever sden ; ho
saw tho nativo belles passing by with
ropes of pearly gems about their throats,
such treasures as would have mado a
society queeivturn pale with envy. Then
Harris madd his tirst business trip to
Tahiti, and ho took with him -$;i,000
worth eif merchandise. His burden con
sisted mainly of tobacco, knives, rope,
iishhooks and articles of clothing.
Theso were luxuries to the native Tahi
ti tei, and tho pearl trader brought hack
that year in exchange for his merchan
dise fully $-10,000 worth of pearls and
pearl shells. IIo did not consider it a
bad bargain, and bo has been back very
Formerly only tbo lowest grado pearls
were brought to the American market.
Tho finer ones were retained abroad and
rarely ever found their way this side of
the water. Harris has turned tho tables
and now brings to tho San Francisco
market tho most perfect pearls fouii''
anywhere. The perfect stones aro orieu
and eif translucent whiteness or glim
mering iridescence. They are iinely
symmetrical in form, and tho best are
generally pear shaped, like a falling
star. Tho hunt for these beauties of the
deep goes on incessantly. Tho samo ex
citement and uncertainty attend tho
fishing us surround thu tireless chase
for gold or the determined digging in a
Thero is tho samo labor and tho oft
repeated disappointment. Now and then
a great surprise, is brought up by tho
fearless pearl tlivt r. That compensates
for all thu rest. Lately it was an im
meuso black pearl, the handsomest of
its kind ever snatched from tho fathom
less ocean. Harris brought it on his last
recent voyage to San Francisco. After
careful examination it was found to bo
absolutely perfect, having a weight of
six carats. It is valued in tho London
market at .-Cl'iO.
Sincti Harris has revolutionized
tho trade in pearl shells. Only ono
grado ever found its way to tho manu
facturers of pearl shell ornaments and
gewgaws. It was generally shell that
was thin, flaky ami colorless and sold
for $S00 a ton. This energetic young
pearl king now exports four different
grades or varieties, ranging iu value
from $000 to .$l,ai)0 a ton.
All sheila are purchased in bulk from
tho native fishers. They bring down
their hauls eif sihtdl to tho young king's
schooner as it lies iu port, fretting rest
lessly against tho side of .the rude piers.
They bring down their find hero for tho
king's inspection. He sits in state and
passes judgment. Harris can tell at a
clauco what a pilo of shells is worth.
Ho is an expert at determining value,
and ho is u shrewd buyer as well and
has never permitted tho native experts
to outdistance him in judgment. When
a pile eif shells is dropped before) bun,
lie picks up eino or two mm
ami carelessly through tho heap and in
u moment can determine thu grade, for
the natives are clever at assortment. o
uncommon shells are ever found among
the. poor ones. They have not learned
yet the trick of deception by mingling

A STIRRING INTERVIEW.
Tho Adventure of a Yankee Lieutenant at
Gibraltar In 1800.
Two noteworthy facts mark the bat
tle of Lake Champlaiu and that erf Lako
Erie. They were tho only squadron bat
tle of the war of 1813, and the two vic
torious American commanders were very
young. Perry was 28 and Maodonough
When Macdouough was but 23 years
of age, an adventure at Gibraltar, in
1806, described in Mr. Spears' "History
of Our Navy," showed tho character of
tho man. He was first lieutenant of the
Yankee brig Siren, and one day while
tho captain was on shoro at Gibraltar a
Yankee merchantman came into the
port and anchored near the Siren. A
boat from a British frigate near by
went directly to the merchantman and
in a few minutes pulled away again,
having one more man in it than when
it left the frigate.
JVIacdonough noted tho fact and sent
.Lieutenant Pago to the merchantman,
who returned with the information that
the British had impressed one of tho
crew of tho merchantman.
Macdonough ordered the Eircu's gig
away, manned with armed men, and
getting into it himself overtook the
British boat alongside of the frigate and
took out of it by force the impressed
seaman and carried him to tho Siren.
Later the captain of the British man
of-war came on board the Siren and in
a great rago demanded to know how
Macdouough had "dared to take a man
from one of his majesty's boats."
"I will," said ho, "haul my ship
alongside tbo Siren and taku the man
by force. ' '
"I suppose," answered Macdouough,
"your ship cau sink tho Siren, Vut as
long as she cau swim I shall keep tho
"You aro a very young man and very
indiscreet," said tho bully. "Suppose I
had been in tho boat. What would you
"I would have taken the man or lost
my life," replied Macdouough.
"What, sir, would you attempt to
stop luo if I were now to try to impress
men from that brig?" thundered the
"I would," answered tho calm Mac
donough, "and to convince yourself
that I would you have only to mako tho
At that tho British captain got into
his boat, rowed away to his frigate and
thou turned nnd rowed toward tho mer
chantman. Macdouough at-once manned
a boat with an armed crew and rowed
ont to protect tho brig. Thu Fnj. lish
man rowed around tho merchantman
without boarding her and then pin hack
to his trigate. Ho had tried to impress
the Yankee sailor not because ho wished
to add more to his crew, but to show
his contempt for the littlo Yankee war
ship. Y'outh's Companion.
A Quaker Koiuauee.
Valeutino Hollingswortb accompanied
William Peuu in tho good ship Wel
ctmio and settled in Dulawuro upon tho
banks of tho Brandywiue. Katheriuo,
his daughter, "a dolootablo Quaker
maiden," thu prido of the littlu settle
ment, was wooed" and won by big
George Robinson. But Georgo was of
tho church of England, and Kathurino
"must he married iu meeting."
"George, "writes tho author of "Heir
looms Iu Miniature, " "was willing to
join tho society, bo a Friend and bo
married in meeting or anywhere elso
that Katherine said. Accordingly ho
and Katherinu made their first declara
tion iith day, 1st month,
Tho elders, however, had ' 'scruples, "
seeing that George's conver.-inu was
very sudden, and they asked him this
searching (juestiou :
"Friend Hobinson, doit thou join tho
Society of Friends from conviction or
for tho love of Katiienni lit.lliugs

and ho elid wish to marry Kutherino. So

love of Katheriuo ilollingsw.rlii. "
Tho Friends counseled "delay and
that Friend liobiusou should bo persua

Katheriuo to tleal with him, and with

piety and goodness to theso around
them and retaining their lovo of truth
and loyalty to th- society to tho last."
Names of Streets.
There was a dhicussion in pregi ess on
tho question of naming thu in w streets
of Washington and making stiniu
changes iu tuu names of l hose already
christened w hen a man, who has lived
in tho city long enough not to lie laeo
tious at the expense of anything so
trodden underfoot as a street is, began
to say something.
"What's thu use of doing anything
with tho names of streets," he in
quired, "especially with iho names of
those that aro lit as they r.rc? Mow,
tako the lettered streets as an example.
They uro named appropriately enough
if thu inhabitants would only livo up to
their opportunities, tor instance, tho
iirst people should livo em A hlreet and

impossildo to reconcile with facts. The

artist hud represented the gallant hand

them on foot. When uttcutiou was

way out of tho difficulty appeared to ho
to insert the fow words as ahovo, which
