A few years ngo n terrible accident lKfell an English sportsman In pursuit of the rhinoceros. It Is given In a book entitled "On Safari." by Abel Chap man, to whom the story was related by the unfortunate man. Tho sports man was In pursuit of eland, and hnd passed a "rhino," which he resolved to go back and endeavor to secure. He tells the story us follows; "The rhino was ll'O yards awny, with Its back toward me. I snt down In grass eighteen Inches high nnd waited. After ten minutes the rhino turned round nnd walked slowly toward me, grazing. "The innti I hnd with me became frightened, and after creeping for some distance through the grass. Jumped to his feet ami run. This aroused the lenst, Tor it lifted its head and looked after the man, giving me the chance I wanted. "I put a solid bullet In the center of its chest, and it went down heavily. There seemed to be not the slightest breath of life left In It, so I walked toward It "When I was less than twenty yards awrty the huge beast gave a roll and got on to Its feet. My rifle was up nt once, and I put a bullet Into the shoul der; but before I could get In a second shot the brute wns charging straight. "I commenced to run, but the first step I took I tripped nnd fell, nnd be fore I could regain my feet It was on top of me. "It hit me first with Its nose, drop-' ped with both knees' on me, then, draw ing back for the blow, threw me clean over Its buck. Tlie horn entered the bnck of my left thigh, nnd I saw the animal well underneath me as I was flying through the air. "It threw me a second time, but I cannot recollect that throw clenrly; and then came a third time. I was lying on my right side when the great black snout was pushed against me. Then I found myself on my feet, how, I do not know, and staggered off. "After going about forty yards, ex pecting every moment to be charged again, I felt that I might as well He down and let the beast finish Its work ; so I lay down." The spot where the catastrophe oc curred was fifteen miles from camp. The nearest doctor was distant one hundred and thirty-six miles. There on the desert veld, a shattered wreck, with right arm smashed, ribs broken, nnd runny minor injuries, lay the hunter, exposed to tho fierce equatorial sun. It was hours before his men found him, and midnight ere they could carry him Into camp. It was not until eight days after the accident that the doctor arrived, and the necessary operations could be performed.' . The man lost his right arm, but oth erwise bears no trace of his terrible experience. WHITE CLOTHES IN SUMMER. Uuverument Tell How to Dodge lloaae Vly aud MokquKo, I The season IB approaching when the blue-tailed fly will resume his task of making life uncomfortable far the bald heads and the mosquito will sing blithely as he sips nectar from the veins of tho unwary. It' Is well that the public cliould know that this pa ternal government hna not been slack In the duty of enlightening the people as to the manners and habits of these summer visitors, in order that the wicked may cease from troubling and ttu weary be at rest. There la hope for all If the people will only drink from the fountain of knowledge. Aftes thv government had become convinced that blue-tailed files actual ly pestered bald heads, and that mos quitoes were active In season, steps were taken to Investigate the life hab its and eccentricities of the fly and the mosquito. The object was to take advantage of some Intellectual Infirm ity of these animals. If possible, and thus neutralize their power for evil. The inquiries were directed by scien tific men, not only in this country, but In Europe, Asia nnd Africa, assisted by American consuls In foreign parts. The result of the inquiries and experi ments have been published in a bulle tin. Stripped of technicalities, the bulle tin's story tells of experiments made with two pieces of cloth, each a yard square. One was white and the other black. They were so placed as to free of access to all files and mosquitoes which cared to assist science In the experiment After witnessing the evo lutions of several thousands of files aud a few myriads of mosquitoes, a careful count was made by the govern ment experts, and It was discovered that of every 1,000 files C19 alighted on the square of black cloth and only 881 on the white. Of every 1,000 mos quitoes 747 showed a preference for the black cloth, while only 253 dallied with the white. After these figures had been summed us. compured, corre lated, co-ordalned, tabulated, etc., tbey were published, with this deduction: If you wish to dodge files and mosqui toes, wear white clothes. Another branch of science has de clared that black clothing concentrates, co-ordinates and condenses the sun's rays, being, therefore, less desirable than white clothing lu summer. This adds force to the government's conten tion. But the (jucsltou here Is the eva sion of the files aud mosquitoes, not that of comfort lu dress. The govern ment, lu the bulletin referred to, told everybody Just wlmt to do. and It la their owu fault If they don't do It. I no most paternal or governments can- '"t force people to protlt by Its advice. It goes out aud gets the Information, regardless of expense, but it Is unking too much to require It to take every bald-headed man by tho napo of tha neck and force him to throw away his black skull cap. The government can not do everything. The peoplu must do some things for themselves. Wash 'ngton Tost. A to tha Fatara of Blaa.

Bull tusks run from twelve to thirty pounds in weight and bring $3.00 a pound. I'lano key manufacturers use only the larger bull tusks, of a weight which cows never attain say forty pounds and over. Ten years ago seventy pounds was a fair average for a shipment, while to day fifty pounds Is considered good, says MeClure's. The heaviest pair of tusks within the memory of American experts are 224. and 2!19 pounds re spectively. They were bought In Zan zibar In 1900 by a New York house for 1,000. Their buyer had a long talk with the Arab who shot and sold them and who killed the elephant with one bullet from a smooth-bore rtfe. When he was questioned as to' the beast's sisie he Baid In Swahlll It was as large as n' Jl' m'zlma, which means, literally, "as big as all out doors." The raw stuff for present American manufacture Is now procured for the most part at quarterly London and Antwerp sides. Every three months Loudon sells nn average of 100 tons of all grades nnd Antwerp a little more. At the last sale prime Ivory brought $.1.50 a pound. The grade of Ivory known as "cutch" and used sole ly for the making of bangles for In dian women Is a curious ivory staple with a special aud, of course, , local market.

' The current theory of the formation of gold-bearing alluvial deposits as sumes that the gold existed originally In the central nucleus of the earth In the forms of sulphide and tellqrlde, which subsequently became dissolved In the water of hot springs and were deposited together with gelatinous silica. Thus were formed veins of au riferous quartz which, In consequence of erosion, gave rise to alluvial strata containing particles of metallic gold. M. Fieux, however, asserts that the erosion of outcropping auriferous veins of qunrtz does not account for all deposits of metallic gold. II 1 unds that sonve gold bearing strata show no trace of qaurti, but consist wholly of clay with fragments of dtorlte or diabase, and moreover are so situated as to preclude the existence of quarts veins. He has seen beds of streams be come richer In gold after every rain, though they showed no trace of quartz. Finally, In certain auriferous strata which contain much quartz, not a par ticle of gold I found In the quartz. though some gold occurs In the dia base which accompanies It. ' Hence Fieux concludes thut the ero sion of quartz veins can not be the sole Vource of auriferous alluvial strata, and furthermore, that the al most constant presence In those strata of heavy basic rock containing dior lte, amphibolic schist and diabase. In dicates that imtlvo gold Is one of the subsidiary Ingredients of those rocks. According to this new theory, there fore, certain of the heavy eruptive rocks have carried with them In their eruption some of the gold existing In the metallic titi.te in the c-ninil nu cleus of the earth. After retching the surface' these rocks were oxiill.i-d by water, which washed away the lighter materials and left the heavier. Includ ing the gold. Si lentiflc American. A Fooale.

LIGHT BOOZE. Do Yoa Drink Iff A minister's wife had quite ft tussle, with coffee and her experience is interest-lag. . She says: "During the two years of my train lag as a nurse, while on night duty, I became addicted to coffee drinking. Be tween midnight and four in the morn ing, when the patients were asleep, there was little to do except make the rounds, and it was quite natural that I should want a good, hot cup of coffee about that time. It stimulated me and I could keep awake better. "Arter three or four years of coffee drinking I became a nervous wreck aud thought that I simply could not live without my coffee. All this time I was subject to frequent bilious attacks, sometimes so severe as to keep me in bed for several days. "After being married. Husband begged me to leave off coffee, for he feared that it had alreudy hurt me al most beyond repair, so I resolved to make an effort to release myself from the hurtful habit. "I began taking Tostum and for a few days felt the languid, tired feeling from the lack of the stimulant, but I liked the taste of I'ostum, and that an swered for the breakfast beverage all right.
