The fight is declared oft and each is accusing the other of showing the white feather. It is a pity the law interfered with the bruisers. It would have served a better purpose had they been arrested and placed in akten foot ring there to remain until one or both had been "done up." The public is heartily sick of both men. John L. Sullivan had his weakness, but it never can be said that he did his fighting on paper. Tun wanton butchery of the queen of Corea by hired Japanese assassins is one of the most pitiful tragedies of modern times. The awful crime had revenge as its motive, and a detestable political conspiracy put up the scheme and the money with which to pay t assassins. The young crown prince was an agon ized witness to the murder of his mother, and he has managed to send an account of the occurrence from the palace in which he is a prisoner. In the mean time, the usurper reigns and there ap pears to be no disposition on the part of the great nations of the earth to in terfere in the matter. There is nothing in it for them, and they will probably end by officially recognizing the murderer as the one upon whom the crown has descended "by divine right." It is the impression among diplomats and officials in Washington that Great Britain is making an attempt to bluff the Venzuelan government out of its boots, in ordering that fortifications be erected upon the disputed territory, ly ing between Veuzuela and British Gui ana, and that it was to gain time to see the effect of the bluff, and not make a Euro pean combination against the Monroe d eti iae, as has been sensationally re ported, that the British goverment re quested further time to consider Secre tary Olney's last communication, which states the position of the United States as to the maintenance -of.'' the Monroe doctrine. John Bull is a wise old chap in spite of his occasional bluster. He would much rather accomplish his pur pose by scaring Veuzuela than by try ing the dangerous experiment of ignor ing the Monroe doctrine. If the Ven- zuelans only display a little backbone now that 'boundary line dispute will bo submitted to arbitration, iu accordance with the original suggestions of Presi dent Cleveland. CURRENT COMMENT. Lemuel Eli Quigg still rides the Waller nightmare in his New York paper paper. Poor fellow ! he seems to be incurable. Governor McKiuley may wish, when the votes are counted, he had made all his speeches in Ohio, instead of stretch ing them into Kentucky and Maryland. If some of the loudest-mouthed poli ticians occupied the position of Presi dent Cleveland they would be just as cautious as he is in dealing with the Cuban question. Precipitancy has never been considered a part of wise states manship. HEARD IN PASSING. The fact that all the New England cot ton mills have raw material on hand which will last until the end of the year, is one reason win the price of that staple shows a tendency to come down. It will be a good thing for the general trade of the country to have cotton become cheaper. Hartford Times. The Duke of Marlborough was ar rested by a sparrow cop iu Central park the other day, for violating a city ordi nance in coasting on a bicycle. He was reprimanded and discharged. The duke and his secretary proclaim the arrest was "an outrage." However, it is not likely that embarrassing international compli cations will result from his grace's ex perience. Danbury Dispatch. HATS AND HEADGEAR. A hat is "finished" by being blocked and polished with a hot iron. Hat "bodies" have been made of cork, of frillow, of palmetto and many other Eubstanees. I The white stovepipe often worn in this country in summer is made of felt with a muslin backing. Twenty-seven different styles of Roman helmets havo been noted on the coins, medals and monuments of the empire. . ? A cap of the style now known ns -.the "liberty cap" was worn from the earliest times among both Greeks and Romans. Silk hats have a muslin body as a basis. From two to six thicknesses of muslin are employed for the brim and ono or two for the top and sides. Sir Philip Sidney at a great fete sported a hat worth ?20,000. It f.as felt, broad brimmed and turned up at the side, with a rosette of diamonds. After the emancipation of the Nether lands from tho domination of Spain a hat was placed on the ooins and medals of the now republic as an omblem of liberty. According to some authorities the best foreign silk used in hat-making is tho French plush, which is said to have a fin ish not attained by the plushmakers in any othor country in Europe. ; The best grades of beaver hats were ! made with tho fur from tho underside of tho body and from the checks, tho fur from the back being employed only in tho manufacture of tho coarser grades. Tho "cap of maintenance" is borne be fore English sovereigns at their corona tion. It is mado of ermino and has two tails or pendants behind. Several digni tarios in England and a number of nobles havo also the right to carry a cap of main- tcnanco on state occasions. -St. Louis Globo-Democrat. GOLD EATING WATER SPARKLING LIQUID CHARGED WITH CYANIDE OF POTASSIUM. millions In the Yellow Metal Recovered by Percolation A Simple but Interest ing rrocess, With Results Which Are Nothing: Less Than Marvelous. It is not generally known, even in California, that millions of dollars in glittering gold are annually taken from rude heaps of base lookiDs? quarts by the gentle flowing of crystal water over huge pilas of broken recks that contain the precious metal, but such is the fact. "The process of robbing the earth of its gold has now been reduced to such a fine point,'! said Professor Price, "that the gentle flowing of water over the ore gleans it of its golden treasures, and this works well in cases where the old chloride and other methods are not so useful." But the water of which Professor Price spoke is not eo pure as it looks, though the eye could never distinguish it from that which is dipped by the old oaken bucket from a well in the deep tangled wildwood. The water used by miners in bringing gold from piles of mineral bearing quartz is charged with a simple chemical which has the potency to dissolve gold and hold it in solution. In ttutb, the sparkling liquid which flows over hundreds of tons of quartz, trickles through the mines and seeks its level, laden with gold, is charged with a deadly poison, cyanide of potassium, a drug which ferrets out the minutest particles of the yellow metal, dissolves them and brings the precious burden to the vats for conversion into refined gold again. The cyanide process is as noiseless and nnerring as the laws of gravitation, do ing its work as quietly as "the majestic dance of the hours," unhindered by darkness or weather, by disasters of field or flood. The state mining bureau of California was one of the first in the United States to investigate the merits of the cyanide prooess, and since the earliest investiga tions tho method has found extensive application. It is so interesting that its results are nothing less than marvelous. This method of extracting both gold and silver from ores is based on the fact that even a Very weak solution of cyanide of potassium dissolves gold and silver, forming respectively- "auro - potassio cyanide" and "argento-potassio cyan ide," in tho language of the chemists. This interesting process consists of treating the ores with a weak solution of potassium cyanide, usually by allow ing the solution to percolate through the ore, or by agitating a mixture of the ore and solution. When this part of the operation is completed, the solution is separated from the solid material, and the gold and silver are precipitated in a metallic form. The process is modern in its application, though it has long been known that cyanide of potassium would "eat gold." During the last five years, however, the process has been introduced into almost every goldfield in Calfornia and elsewhere, and more than $20,000,000 have been recovered by the gentle flowing of waters charged with the magical chemical over heaps of ore. Aside from the thoroughness Yf the permeating water method, its economy is a marked feature in mining. It is in great favor with the gold mining com panies of New Zealand and at Johannes burg, Africa, as well as in California. . One of the most advantageous features of the cyanide method is that it can be applied to many gold and silver ores gen erally called "rebellious" or "refrac tory." The rebellions ore is placed in a vat for percolation, "and the solution is run preferably from the bottom by a pipe, rising slowly through the ore. The solution containing gold is carried through precipitating appliances into the final reservoir, where, robbed of its wealth of metal, it may be repumped into ore vats and again used for search ing out the coveted metal. One of the curious things about the solution is that a total percentage not stronger than an eighth of 1 percent will carry away the gold almost as well as fluid of greator strength. Precipitation is effected by the use of fine pieces of zinc, so arranged that when the rich wTaters flow over them the fine gold clusters in rich deposits over the zinc, for which it has an affinity. Tho gold which thus deserts the waters of cyanide deposits itself in the form of fine dust on the plates of zinc. The per centage of gold extracted by this process is very large. A large parcel of fine sulphurets from the Utica mines yielded an average of 93. 1 Si per cent of the gold value under the cyanide treatment, and similar results have been experienced elsewhere in the state. The cyanide plants are being extended, and the noiseless process is everywhere becoming popular. San Francisco Chronicle. The Nut Diet. It is evident by many straws noticed in a general reading of periodical and newspaper literature tiat the next fad of the dietists is to be nuts. All the scientific cooking and health food au thorities are urging with increasing per sistence the value of this natural food and giving receipts for various nut flours, from which different varieties of bread cake may be made that are nutri tious and of medicinal value in certain ailments.
