He wag just a little Arab In the street; He had neither shoes nor stockings On his feet; She was rich and young and pretty, And she murmured: “What a pity. He would starve here in the city!" So she took him home and fed him. Which was sweet. Her father had a villa Far away. Where the transparent waters Of the bay Gently beat against the strand. Where the shells gleamed on the sand, Where the birds sang sweetly, and Where cares were never present, Night or day. She washed him and she dressed him Up in style— Nearly every word he uttered Made her smile— Then she took the little stranger # From the city’s dirt and danger. Thinking that she’d make a granger Of the urchin in a precious Little while. I He had sojourned in the country _ Just about , Twenty minutes when he boldly *N ■. Started out On a raft that he had found And in veering it around Ct upset and would have drowned . If a neighbor hadn’t chanced to Hear him shout. Oh. he chased the frightened cattle Here and there. Ant he kept the chickens flying Through the air; The horses got to shying. The neighbors got to sighing. The lucklings got to dying, Ant it seemed that there was havoc Everywhere. He threw the maiden’s kitten What he might do next no one could Ever tell; The wheel came off the carriage— Ah, you should have heard her pa rage And vehemently disparage His daughter’s good intentions When it fell! He tumbled from the hayloft And they thought For a while that he was gone, but He was not! He had been there seven days When they found the house ablaze And her ma, in skirt and stays, Had to leap down stairs to keep from Being caught. ****** He’s once more a little Arab In the street. And he’s full of recollections That are sweet; She is rich and young and pretty. But she’s lost the gracious pity For the homeless in the city That she had before he took her Off her feet. THE COLEMAN MILLIONS. The stories of millions are always interesting, and tales of the loss of great wealth are alwaj’s read by the American people. The story of the Coleman millions is an old story, but many facts of interest in connection with the failure of Robert H. Cole man have never been published. The Coleman family war one of the best known in Pennsylvania. The history of the Cornwall ore hills, with which the Colemans have always been associated, is not so well known, and many Pennsylvanians do not know of the vast quantity of iron ore which is locked up in them at Cornwall. For the kind of ore, the size of the bed, and its quality, it>_.equal is unknown. There are W* i-Siil’e stL -water another 78. A drill has been sunk into the ore for 200 feet below water level, without reaching the bottom of the doposit. Since 1740 this bed has been mined, and about 8,000,000 tons have been dug from its sides, equivalent to 4,000,000 tons of pig iron. But cold statistics, while they may appeal to the imagination, do not give an adequate conception of their vastness. To realize what is at Cornwall the triple mountain of ore must be seen, and repeated visits will increase the wonder and admira tion of the beholder. Up to the time when Robert H. Coleman assigned his estate this mountain was largely the property of the Coleman estate. No one knows who first discovered the presence of the ore or who first appreciated its value. The Indians knew of the strange earth to be found there, and, when the first white settlers gave them the iron, the aborigines quick ly discovered what to them seemed miraculous. The mysterious dirt would cling to their hatchets, and steel heads would hold fast to the ore. The savages regarded this magnetic property with awe and concealed it from the whites. TRANSFERS OF THE TRACT. In 1732 John, Thomas and Wil liam Penn assigned a warrant for thirty acres, in which territory the yet virgin hills were included, to Joseph and James Turner. From them it passed to William Allen, who, in turn, sold it, in 1737, to Peter Grubb, for ,£135. It was the biggest bargin Mr.Grubb ever struck, and it is safe to believe that Mr. Al len, who did not like the barren hills, was not aware that they held such a princely revenue. Peter Grubb, hav ing had his curiosity aroused by vari ous rumors, dug up some of the earth and ascertained from an expert in Philadelphia that it was half iron. In 1740 he built a little charcoal fur nace and smelted the first ore. Forty-three years swept by, and Peter Grubb, Jr., added to the estate by purchasing 132 acres more. It was about this time that one of the Grubbs, to satisfy an obligation, gave away a privilege to take from the hills enough for “one furnace as long as water runs and grass grows.” By this agreement the Robesonia Iron Company, near Reading, gets all its ore for nothing. Just before the Revolution, Robert Coleman, a young Irishman of ener gy, discretion, tact and business abil ity, came to Cornwall and entered the employ of the Grubbs. He ad vanced step by step until be became the practical manager of the estate. During the Revolution he made con tracts with the Continental Congress for casting cannon, shot and shells, and many of these hard arguments for liberty came from the Elizabeth Furnace, in Lancaster county. MADE THE HESSIANS WORK. Coleman kept exact accounts with the Government, and some of his memoranda revealed the fact that many of the Hessian troops, hired by the British invaders and captured by the American troops, were sold into bondage for a term of years. Under date of November 16th, 1782, Robert Coleman credits the Government with “Cash value of forty-two German prisoners of war at each, 1,260 pounds,” and on June 14th, 1783, there is another for twenty-eight German prisoners of war at 30 pounds each. These prisoners were put to work digging ore and hauling it to the furnaces. As late as 1843 Rupp, a local historian, visited one of the Hessians, who was sold for 40 pounds for three years to Captain Jacob Zimmerman, of Lancaster Co. Goverment contracts apparently proved profitable, for on May 9th, 1786, Robert Coleman bought of Pe ter Grubb one sixth share in the es tate. In due time Peter Grubb pass ed away, leaving two sons, Burd Grubb and Henry Bates Grubb. Burd Grubb sold to Robert Coleman all his real estate, except the ore hills, for $29,000, on September 12th, 1798. He transferred his share in the ore hill to his brother, Henry Bates, who in turn sold four-sixths of the whole to Robert Coleman. Thus did the diligent employe of the Grubbs acquire five-sixths of the property and provide for his descen dants a fortune founded upon iron. The history of the ownership now becomes more complicated. Robert Coleman left as his heirs William, James, Edward and Thomas Burd Coleman. Of these William and Ed ward sold their interest to Thomas Burd. James’s children were Robert, George Dawson, Ann, Sarah and Harriet. The interest of the daugh ters passed into the hands of their brothers, Robert and George Daw son. Going back to Thomas Burd Coleman. He died, leaving Robert W., William, Annie C., Isabella, Sarah and Margaret. Isabella and Robert W. died intestate. William Coleman left two children, Robert H. and Annie, the latter now married to Archibald Rogers, of New York. For a long time various heirs of the estate dug ore at will from the ap parently endless supply. At last, however, articles of agreement were drawn up, by which the interest in the Cornwall ore hills was divided into ninety-two shares. The ore was mined by the Cornwall Ore Banks Company and sold at private rates to proprie-tors. ROBERT H. COLEMAN’S CAREER. Robert H. Coleman is a graduate of Lafayette College, and is now about 43 years of age. When he at tained his majority, in 1877, he came into possession of his fortune, his father having died on May sth, 1861. His guardian was Samuel Small, of New York, now deceased. Mr. Cole man’s release to his guardian shows that when he became of age he re ceived over $1,000,000 in stocks and bonds, mostly U. S. bonds and Penn sylvania Railroad stock. He imme diately engaged in business, devoting all his attention thereto, and it is a millions kffus afiefTurmis back upon the empty pleasures of the world and finding delight in the de velopement of the industry of a coun try. He soon saw that Cornwall needed a railway connection with the Penn sylvania, giving it the advantage of competition with the Philadelphia and Reading. Accordingly, be built the Colebrook Valley Railroad from Cornwall to Conewago, on the main line of the Pennsylvania. There was a road from Cornwall to Lebanon — the Cornwall—but Mr. Coleman could not get possession of it, and then he built his own road to Lebanon. It is now known as the Cornwall and Leb anon. Meanwhile he built new fur naces and erected a village or two of comfortable houses for his work men. He built a bank in Lebanon, the ground alone costing $25,000. It is at the junction of the principal streets, Eighth and Cumberland, and upon it he erected a sandstone build ing, costing about SIOO,OOO. He was president of the bank—the Lebanon Trust and Safe Deposit Bank —but when he failed in 1893 tbe bank was obliged to cease business. In March, 1898, this building was sold at as signee’s sale to another banking in stitution in Lebanon for $33,500. In 1880, in memory of his deceas ed wife, Mr. Coleman built St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, in Lebanou, at a cost of $150,000. It is finished in highly polished brick. The floor is of English tile, the pillars are of the richest granite, and the roof is of oak and other hard woods. The remains of Mr. Coleman’s first wife rest be neath the structure. Mr. Coleman remarried and has several children. ESTATE OF 72,000 ACRES. Ten years ago Mr. Coleman had charge of an estate which required fifty-four miles of fence to girdle, which comprised 22,000 acres, and which had tenantry of over 1000 It. extended from Cornwall, in Lebanon county. A single road through the property to Speedwell, in Lancaster county, is over twenty miles long. The income from all this estate, it is said, was not large enough to be counted. The great source of wealth was the ore -beds. The pay roll of the whole Coleman estate numbered 2000 people, that of the Cornwall property alone 1200. At its height the ineome from the iron mountains and furnaces of the Coleman estate was equivalent to an income of 5 per cent, on $40,000,000. Mr. Coleman’s home at Cornwall was built by his father, and is but a short distance from the ore hills. Over its threshold is inscribed, “Par vus domus, magna quies.” The house was a little palace, surrounded with terraced lawns where fountains bubbled, and provided with every ap pointment which art and science, gov erned by intellectual, taste could de sire. At the time of his assignment Mr. Coleman was building a large music hall, to cost SIOO,OOO. At the present time can be seen shavings and other evidences of where the work ingmen stopped. No estimate of tbe cost of the entire home can be made, but when the property was offered for sale, over a year ago, it was with drawn because only $19,500 was of fered. Mr. Coleman was known all over Pennsylvania as the “Iron King,” but his desire was to be called a rail -1 road magnate, and the building of his road from Lebanon to Conewago did not suffice to give him that title. The Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Railroad was organized some years before, but nothing was done in the way of construction until 1883, when Mr. Coleman, visiting in Florida, got possession of the majority of shares of the capital stock, and the construc tion was begun. Mr. Coleman was president. Everything prospered. Mr. Coleman’s private car was the finest that could be built, and in win ter he always traveled to Florida. Lebanon county was more prosperous than it ever had been, and the rela tions existing between Mr. Coleman and his employes were such that strikes were never heard of. But when the panic of 1893 came with its dreadful results, Mr. Cole, man was unprepared. The Florida railroad went into the hands of re ceivers, and a note for SIOO,OOO, held by the Lebanon Bank, of which Mr. Coleman was president, could not be realized upon. Money was all tied up, and the bank failed. On the eighth day of August Mr. Coleman assigued for the benefit of his credi tors. The assignees, Henry T. Ken dall, of Reading, and the Pennsyl vania Company for the Insurance of Lives and Granting of Annuities, of Philadelphia, in June, 1894, sold to the Lackawaua Iron and Steel Com pany, of Scranton, Pa., much of the property. It included the furnaces at Cornwall and Colebrook and 15854 shares of stock in the Cornwall ore properties. The lumpwas $2,500,375. Immediately after his financial dif ficulties Mr. Coleman left Cornwall, and now lives at Lake Saraman, New York. It is saidthat he is a reading clerk in the Episcopal Church. “THE MYSTERY OF WARTS.” I have been interested for some years in the “mystery of warts,” says a correspondent of the New York Sun. Nearly forty years ago, when a very small boy, I dispelled warts that were upon my own hands by rubbing them with a piece of com mon school crayon. lam a graduate of a New York City medical college, and am legally qualified to practice medicine in New York and New Jer sey, and I frankly admit that my usual method of removing warts from my patients has in recent years been by the method of buying them. To explain my modus operandi, I usual ly give the patient a bright penny or nickel, and assure him positively that the warts will soon disappear; that they are mine by purchase, and so must leave him. Usually they disap pear in from four to ten weeks. A —...m mv wart patients have been and daughter of a well-known doctor of divinity, a d girls and boys of intelligence, members of our high school, who are preparing for en trance into our best univerities and colleges. I mention this class of pa tients to show that the plan works upon the intelligent and the supersti tious. Byway of illustration I wili narrate two instances of cure. A mother consulted me about an enor mous seed wart upon the left elbow of her son. The wart was fully as large as a silver half dollar, and when the boy bent his arm the wart would crack and bleed. I offered the boy a new, bright penny for the wart, and at first he could not grasp the idea that I was serious in my proposal to buy the wart. In a few weeks I was interested to find upon examination that exactly one-half of the wart had disappeared. It seemed as though the wart had been divided through the middle, aud one-half of it had been shaved or scraped away. I as sured the boy that the remainding portion would soon disappear, and so it did. A young woman behind the coun ter of one of our local stores had her hands dotted all over with warts. I judged she had not less than thirty on each hand. When I required why she did not get rid of them, she said that she had tried many remedies, but they had all failed, and she was dis couraged in her efforts. I then offer ed to buy them of her for a penny. The method being so easy and pleas ant, she agreed to sell them to me, and after a number of weeks they all disappeared. I can offer no thoroughly scientific explanation for these facts beyond the statement that they come under the head of mental influence. I as sert with such positiveness my ability to dispel warts by purchase that my patient’s “sub-conscious self” or “subjective mind” is impressed by my asseveration, and, although my claim is met by a smile of incredulity, through their belief in me and the force of my asseveration they half ex pect it will occur as I declare it will. The “subconscious self,” or, as Hud son denominates it, “the subjective mind,” presides over the activities of our physical functions, i. e., our phy sical life, independently of our rea soning faculties, our intellect or our “objective mind” (Hudson), controls the organs of the body and admits disease unfluences and impressions unfavorable to us, and also elimi nates disease under favorable, force ful suggestion. “Look out,” shouted the conduc tor as the train was entering a tun nel. Just then an Irishman poked his head out at a window and came very near being struck in the head by a projecting rock. “Faith,” exclaimed Pat, “when they say ‘look out’ in this country they mean ‘look in !’ ” “Do you keep shot?” asked the lady. “No, lady,” replied the bibulous hardware dealer, who had allowed his business to run down ; ‘ ‘business is so bad lately it’s ’s much’s I can do to keep half-shot.” The reward of a thing well done is to have done it.

A short course in agriculture estab lished by many of the state agricul tural colleges are of immense value to the farmer boys who attend them. The teaching is all along useful lines, and the instruction tends to make more practical farmers. Prof. W. A. Henry, of the Wisconsin Agricultural College, has prepared a series of ques tions to be studied and answered by the students, of which the following on feeds and feeding are a good illus tration. It would be a good practice for any farmer to carefully read and see how many of the questions he could answer : Is buttermilk as useful as skim milk for feeding pigs ? In addition to pasture, how much hay and grain is required to keep a cow a year ? State the ration for a German cav alry horse ? How many pounds of grain does it require for ioo pounds of gain with fattening lambs ? How much more feed do fattening pigs require in winter than in sum mer? At what age is the dairy cow at her best ? How does mare’s milk differ from cow’s milk ? About how much gain do fattening lambs make per day ? How can we tell new-process from old-process oil meal ? Which will produce the most milk when fed to dairy cows—an acre of corn put in the shock, or an acre of corn put in the silo ? Is wet feed as satisfactory for pigs as dry feed ? At what time should corn be har vested to give the largest returns of nutriment? What part of tening steers iK fat ? Do barrows fatten faster than sows ? Does sweet skim-milk cause pigs to gain faster in weight than sour skim-milk ? Is bran as good feed for fattening pigs as middlings? How much gain will an acre of pasture put on steers in one season ? Does soaked corn give better re turns than dry corn with steers ? Describe how to make hay tea for calves ? Is beet pulp a good stock feed ? Does the cost of gain with fatten ing steers increase with the length of the fattening period ? What were the results of the World’s Fair test with dairy cows? Is millet hay a good feed for horses? State the maintenance food requir ed by breeding ewes in winter. About what value have artichokes for feeding pigs ? What effect does cotton-seed meal have on butter-fat ? State the advantage of feeding bone meal to hogs living on corn. Is overripe crimson clover danger ous to horses ? Is corn smut poisonous to dairy cattle ? State the effects of age on the gains made by fattening steers. Does it pay to feed corn to steers while on pasture ? What do calves weigh at birth ? Is spontanous combustion possible with clover hay ? Does it pay to feed the condimental foods to stock ? Are brewer’s grains a good feed for dairy cows ? How much water does a cow drink in a day ? What part of the nutrients of a corn crop is the stalks ? Can cows be kept for several weeks on corn meal as the sole feed ? State the advantages of soiling cat tle? State the difference in the amount of feed required to fatten a ioo-pound pig and a 200-pound pig. HOW GEORGIE DISPOSED of hU RELATIVES. Just ahead of me in the train the other morning sat two men who were telling the stories that are never old, about the bright sayings of their children. One of them, however, had a brand-new one about his four-year old Georgie. This youngster had been safely tucked in bed after a day of the most fatiguing play. He yawned while being undressed, and was all but asleep by the time he found himself between the sheets. His mother none the less insisted upon his repeating the prayer of childhood. He started sleepily, re quiring prompting at the beginning of every line. Drowsiness had near ly won the mastery by the time that he had obediently got as far as “take my soul.” “God bless ” prompted his mother. Georgie has a long list of relatives. There was a flutter of his sleep-laden lids as he lumped them altogether: “God bless the whole shooting match !” And he was asleep at last. “Yes; I’ll admit that I thought my wife was an angel before I mar ried her.” “And what do you think now?” “Well, she’s still an angel, but her feathers come high.”
