The announcement of State Treas urer Henry that the State tax on the grand list of 1889 will be suspended shows that the State is all right financially It is the first time in its history that such an an nouncement has been made. But this is not all. Not only can the State tax. ag gregating not less than $350,000, be sus pended, but State bonds to the amount of $200,000 will be redeemed by the first of December. Stale Treasurer Henry, in re deeming $300,000 of the outstanding Knlf. million of State bonds issued in 1887, will not make any formal call from the treas urer's office for the amount, but will re ceive the bonds directly from the jEtna Life Insurance company, which holds the whole half million. These bonds are now on deposit in Canada, where the . company has a large guarantee fund for the transaction of its business. The Hartford Post says: In making the transfer the company will be put to considerable inconvenience, but the redemption has been most heartily co-operated in by Governor Bnlkeley, who is the president of the .AStna Life, and the bonds will be placed in the hands of the State early in November. Governor Bnlk eley was the principal advocate of the optional character of the bonds, when they were authorized in 1887. The ten dency at that time was to make the issue for a term of years, but the governor be lieved that the State would be able to re deem within a brief period, and succeeded in having an optional bond carried. The result proved his foresight. Within eight een months half a million of the issue was redeemed. Now $200,000 more will be called in this fall.

On the same basis the whole State would show 2,650, amounting to about $3,000,000. It is worth notingl that these foreclosed mortgages are not all farm mortgages, by a considerable ma jority. A large portion of the foreclosures are on .occupied lands bought up and mortgaged for what they would bring by speculation. . Mortgages on actual Kansas farms are not, as a rule, bad in vestments. .

The story of Fred Kimball, the abscond ing cashier of the People's Savings bank of Worcester, is being used to point a moral. Having conceived an absorbing j affection for a courtesan, he abandoned his wife and children, a happy home, a comfortable business position, and a fair reputation, stole over $5,000 in cash and over $40,000 in securities from the bank, and. with his paramour "took his journey into a far country." In Paris he "spent his money in riotous living," and when the first glamoar of his vicious course had passed away, in a fit of drunken madness he n nan-filed with his prtn -"- Hu, and she returned to this country ana De frayed him to the ofiScers of the law for a reward. He is now in the hands of justice and a dozen years in the state prison is likely to-be the result of his escapade. Mr. Clarkson, of Iowa, who is to take general charge of the work of the Repub lican cnncresnional committee, says the prospect of a Republican majority in the next house is not first rate, but is far from hopeless. If he could not see a fighting chance of success he would not waste his time in the work of the commit tee, he says. At the beginning of this sion the Republicans had scarcely a major ity of the house, and since then the Demo crats have so gerrymandered several states as to make thirty-one districts apparently Democratic which before were surely Re publican. The Republicans, therefore, must gain at least twenty-five districts somewhere to make up for those gerry mandered away. Mr. Clarkson believes it can be done, but it will need hard and skillful work, of which he is willing to do his share. ing gayly In the band standwill probably never be known. Possibly he had found life too slow at the drinking fountain and it may be that he didn't think he could do the stand pipe any harm. At any rate he shinned up and be gan monkeying with the cap on the top. A rail grown man vim sieei piuiuicvb would undoubtedly have expierienced con siderable difficulty in unfastening that tap, but the foot high urchin found; it easy enough. His accomplishment will surprise him to the end of his. days. He was bend ing directly over the pipe, stomach down, when the last thread of the cap screw was loosened. There was a swish and a roar and the million-pound pressure sent a mighty volume of water a thousand feet into the air. It would have been a magnificent spectacle but for one feature which froze the blood in the veins of the assembled multitude. As far as the eye could reach, and almost at the very top of thia tower of water, a tiny speck slowly revolved. It was the small boy, helpless, and feebly waving his handa and feet in his terror. Fortunately the tremendous force sup ported him, and the centrifugal power eon vexing towards the sides of the torrent, kept him in the middle. It was wet work looking on, but for a few seconds no body a ..red to move. Then a brave mem ber of the police department recovered his presence of mind and darted, to tne rare House telephone. A little later Superin tendent Kieran of the water works arrived on the scene, pale bnt determined. The same thought seemed to inspire the crowd at the same moment, for five hun dred voices exclaimed: " You must let him down easy." Superintendent Kieran needed no such warning. He knew that to shut of the supply suddenly meant a terri ble fall for the half drowned lad, who had ceased to move up there among the stars, and with a touch as light as a woman's he began to turn back the swift tide in the main artery. Inch bv inch the tower of water dimin ished; inch by inch that small speck of humanity descended. The excitement was at concert Ditch. Everybody spoke in hoarse whispers. Finally a joyous cheer rang out. The urchin was thirty feet from the ground, and scores of arms were, out stretched to receive him. "Stand steady," was the order, and the last spoonful of water was turned of, and the boy dropped safely into the network of hands. "That beats balloons." he said, as he wiped his face with,his dripping sleeve. SHE VANQUISHED THE WOLF. BIG. QUICKSILVER. One of the new features of the census is the collecting of facts concerning the pro duction of quicksilver in this country. It is the first time that these facts have been collected. Nearly all the quicksilver pro duced in this country is obtained in Cali fornia and the metal is obtained by mining the cinnabar ore and extracting the mer cury by fire. About twenty flasks, less than $1,000 in value, were produced last year in Oregon, and a little in Utah; bnt the tables shown are almost exclusively made up of California returns. In all there are eleven quicksilver mines named as producing yields exceeding in value $1,- 000. Most of the mines yield a much larger amount, the average cost of getting out a flask of the clear metal being about $33. Of course, the chief item in the cost is the wagea of the workmen. Eleven establishments employ Vol working peo ple (including a limited number of China men), at wages averaging about $3 per day, to those working above ground, and a little more to those down in the mines the Chinamen getting decidely the low est. Spain is the chief competitor. Her famous "Almaden" mine is under gov ernmental management and control, as is Austria's "Idria" mine; the former pro ducing 485,039 flasks for the last decade, and the latter 133,557. Italian mines pro duced 66,440. In the decade, according to the information now obtained at the Census bureau, our own country (chiefly California) produced 407,675 flasks, which is 78,264 flasks less than Spain's product in the ten years, and 278,261 flasks less than the oombined foreign product. The business seems to be declining in this country. There is too much competi tion from Spain and Austria. Wblte Sew MaeMne Go.

One day Uncle Jonas's two cows disap peared from the opening in the woods about his lonely home, and no traces of them could be gained. Aunt Molly, as his wife was called, started to hunt" them "up ' next morning, as the'' men of the family ' were. away. Leaving the children and' go-1 ing in a westerly direction, she wandered throughout the day in the dark, unbroken forests without a mouthful to eat, except a few spruce buds and dried berries, with an occasional handful of ground nuts, which grew in great abundance in the lowlands. The sun was fast sinking, when, to her great joy, she discovered the lost cows quietly grazing on a small grass plat near Crooked river, some four miles from home. With all possible haste she drove them alone:, hoping to reach home before dark, and as she had no guide, not even spotted trees,she had to trust wholly to the instinct of the beasts. Their coursa often seemed to her exactly the opposite to right, still her practical .idge taught ner it was mm w jet them have their own way. hen near what is now known as Pine House, on a ridge covered bv a growth of gigantic pine. both cows gave a loud bellow, as if from fright and broke into a furious gallop in the direction of home now half a mile dis tant. Pausing to ascertain the cause of their fright she was confronted by a wolf. The wolf at once made a spring for ner face, no doubt intending to grab her throat. With the skill and fury of an expert boxer. Aunt Molly dealt him a stunning blow with her brawny and hardened fist, which sent him back on his haunches. Again and again the starving brute went for her throat, but each time was met with both fists and feet with sumcient force to send him back several feet. Knowing it . was now life or death, the heroic woman found herself fast growing weaker, while the at tacks of ner savage adversary grew more fierce. Snatching her tattered shawl from her head, with a desperate leap she threw it over the head of the wolf with a dexterity which was not only surprising to the wolf, but herself also. This piece of strategy had the effect to bewilder the wolf. He leaned wildlv about. .. . . .1.. - . - vainly endeavoring to rid himself of bu inconvenient headgear, while Molly lost no time in climbing to the lower branches of a tree and out of harm a reach. hen the wolf had rid himself of his temporary blindfold and sufficiently recovered his equilibrium, seeing his intended victim be yond his reach he at once set up the most demoniac howls of rage and disappoint ment, occasionally venting his spleen by furious attacks upon the trunk of the tree and tearing the rough bark with his long crooked fangs. Here she remained until the return of day. when the wolf slunk away in the di rection of the nver.

Thia enoounter spread his fame all over the coast, and when he went over to Nevada he received everywhere the hom age of lesser lights. They have lota of deadly encounters op there on the Corns toe k. There was one a number of years ago fought over half a mile under ground. According to the evidence given at the inquest by the sur vivor, the two miners were working aione in a drift. They were rivals for the affec tions of a woman, and in a quarrel one made a drive at the other with his candle stick. A miner's candlestick consists of a metal socket attached to a sharp steel spike, so that it can be stuck in the face of the drift anywhere. The second miner defended i-lf with his candlestick, and there, thousands of feet under the ground, they wrestled and stabbed until one's life was gone. As they did not come up when they should have gone off shift others went down in search of them. They found one dead and the other uncon scious through loss of blood. The jury, of course, had to take the survivor's story of the affair, and he waa acquitted. A little blind canon in the Sierra Mad re used to furnish the Apaches with the means of formally settling their dis putes. This gulch is fairly alive with rat tlesnakes. When two bucks had a quarrel that they did not wish to settle off hand they repaired to this gully, and while the remainder of the tribe stood around and watched from the hills on either aide, the combatants went together to where the serpents were thickest. There, stark naked and weaponless they would wrestle. This would wake up every rattler in the glen. The aim of each was to force the other on to the angry snakes. It waa not unusual for both to-be bitten while they strug gled and rolled among the rocka. Each waa bound to remain and wrestle as long as his adversary had life or strength enough to struggle with him. A most remarkable duel was fought at Las Camitaa, X. M., many years ago. An under sued stranger came to the town and picked a quarrel with "Handsome Harry," a gambler renowned a dead shot. They got out into the road and both fell mortal ly wounded. It was discovered that the stranger waa a woman, and though she never spoke after she fell the story became known that she was a sister of a girl whom "Handsome Harry" had wronged years be- fore. The LaoglilnK Plant. I made some passing remarks the other day on the kola nut and other vegetables of magic, says a writer in the London Times. But, if possible, even more de sirable and delightful in this "laughing plant." Not that the vegetable itself laughs it does not even smile bnt its seeds, if eaten, incite to immoderate mirthfulness. It is described as bearing flowers of a bright yellow, and soft and wooly " seed ps, in . which: axe inclosed . small, black K-ans. J- 7 "'-. - s '" The natives of "that part of Arabia in which the plant grow," dry and pulverize these beans, and if this powder is admin istered "it makes the soberest person be have like a circus clown, for he will laugh, dance, sing and cut the most fantastic ca pers. The effects lasts about an hour, at the end of which the patient recovers his normal gravity, And is altogether obliverous of his extraordinary conduct when under the influence of the powder." Dr. Johnson had a laugh like a rhinoc eros, supposing rhinoceroses to commit themselves to mirth; and Ltaton, were it not for his uncontrollable fits of conta gious hilarity, might have been immortal as a tragedian. But he could no more keep his face serious than little boys in school when they are once "set off." Something of the same irresponsible risi bility would be the common condition of society if the plant we are referring to ever comes into general use. It would be an innocent sort of opium, relieving the weary and the wretched from their thoughts, and no one need be dull. All alone, the hypochondriac might make himself the bet of company, and without anqfher soul in the" 'rooetjnight pass his evening aa merrily as if be hair-'' trot unmaidi wita nun or 1 neodore hook. What fun it would be at small desolate railway stations to wak-h the bright faces of the passengers "waiting for the train," and how it would brighten a country walk if every tramp who went by looked as if he had just been told a capital joke and could not get it out ot his need. Mo achoolsboys would creep like snails un willingly to school; on tne contrary, they would hop, skip and jump all the way and whistle as they went. It is a delightful prospect, and the sooner the Arbians be gin exporting the jovial beans the better. only tor toe use of parliament. We have had enough of grambling, obstruction and ill-temper; let ns try legislation by laughter. WESTERN DC ELS. ftTJEER THINGS DO HAPPEN.

A boy with a wonderful capacity for cold water made a kind of a Noah's ark time of it last evening for people who dwell around the South park.

The riata duel is not a new thing on the Mexican frontier. Indeed there is hardly a big cattle range anywhere that haa not its stories of hard fights with the laaso. Such duels are bound to be fierce. But skillful and quick do these rope throwers become that such a duel not frequent lasta for hours. Probably the best remembered fight of this .sort was that between a Texan known as Kid Long and a little Mexican, who was only spoken of as "Gabilan" hawk on the great Lievre range. They circled around each other, dodging the rapid throws, from 10 o'clock in the morning until after sunset. When the horses had almost given out, the Texan threw at his adversary, who threw back so that his noose passed right over the other mi lasso and hand and caught him fair around the neck and under the armpit. In almost no time Kid waa out of his saddle and be ing dragged over the ground at the rate that knocked the life ont of him before he had cone a hundred yards. The West during its wild and wooly days and the Mexican frontier have had many remarkable duels. That between "Farmer" Peel and a soldier near one of the forts in Utah is among the classics of the field lof honor or what has an swered for that in the cow towns and min ing comn. The weapons were rules, re volvers and bowie knives. The principals were placed on opposite sides of a hillock, around which ran a road, and started to meet. The curve of the hill prevented their seeing one another until they were within a hundred yards. As soon as they saw one another they both fired. Though nart of the rim of Peel's hat waa cut off .nd tha soldier's sieves waa trierced. neith er was hurt. Then they pulled their pis tols and advanced, firing. Both dropped badly wounded when less than twenty yards separated them. They lay there squirming and shooting until both had emptied their weapons. Peel waa desper ately hurt, and his adversary had one ball through the stomach and several others distributed all over his anatomy. When they could shoot no more they lay for short time swearing. Then PeeL who wi so badly hurt that he could not advance etn on his hands and knees, began to wriggle toward the fallen soldier. He pulled himself along with his elbows, and with his awe uninjured hand finished the soldier with his bowie knife. Farmer Feel already had the biggest Wood Mantels.
