CoLtornAno farmers find it profitable

All right. Let us reciprocate with
Chili by recalling Egan.
FeIn. present appearances there will

'TTHE Buffalo News, in commenting on
he rumor that J. Sloat Fasett will be
appointed to succeed Whitelaw Reid as
iinister to France, cruelly suggests
hat: the young man be sent to Japan,
aecause that country is further away.
This is not a bad idea, providing Fas- 1
sett can be accompanied by Tom Platt.
Xfter a month's stay in that country 1
:he mikado's right to his seat would be
,on tested before the supreme court of
Japan and that distinguished dignitary
would be relegated to the position of
henchman to the Platt ring.
OrE effect of mortality in the grip t
epidemic in London is a great revival in
the manufacture of crape. Several fac
tories that have been idle for some time c
are now working at full capacity to sup
ply the demand. It is possible that the
wearing of crape, which is more com
mon in England than in any other coudi
try, will likewise increase the prevalence o
of grip. One reason why. this form I
of mourning has been discarded in the
United States is because arsenic is used
in the manufacture of the cloth. When
arsenic is inhaled it is exceedingly injur
ious to tholungs. The use of crape there
fore makes an easy mark for the grip,
particularly in the dump English atmos
phere.

The Tribune will not presume to say
whether the Helena croject will materialize
or whether it will spend its force upon
paper and end where it began-in words
and wishes. It will ayr, however, there is
some exceedingly good leather among Hel
ens business men and that they general!y
"get there" in any proposition in which
there is money for their city. They are
public spirited, enterprising, energetic and
industrious, and what is more important,
they pull together when they do get into
harness, as one man. That they will leave
no s.one unturned to securediroot rail coinm
munication with Castle goes without say
ing. As to the advantages which may so
crue to them and to Castle through such
connection they may properly be loft to the
business men of the one place and the
miners ,f the other to measure.-Great

PERILrS OF 8TAIIWG,.
A 5attle With Wolves and Another Wits1
Robbers In a Dream.
W, J. (Idley, the manager of the stage
line between Gillette and Buffalo, in Wy
oming, has had many exciting adventures
on the box. Psrhaps the worst-the one
that left him gray-haired, he says--wa a
battle with wolves in the Bad Lands of, Dfa
kota. H1e was driving ix, horses and had a
full load of passengers. It was midwinter,
intensely cold and with two feet or more of
seow everywhere. A pack of wolves iilrd
a determined assault on the outfit. For
three hourse it was a desperate battle for
life. No less than thirty wolves were shot
down. Finding destruction was almost
certain, Gidley tied the lines to the brake
and, walking out on the tongue, leaped on
the back of the "awing" horses. From this
perilous position, with the wolves snapping
at him, he managed to loose the teasl of,
leaders. The wolves took after the liber
ated horses and the coach was brought into
a station safely.
The very nearest Gidley came to beinR
killed by road agents, he says, was one
night between Blismarck and Deadwood.
The treasure-box and express messenger
were both full and the night was pitch dark.
Its think, that there was "not less than
$i,000),000 worth on the stage." This was
more money than he had ever had in his
keeping at one time before and it made
him nervous. He was suddenly brought to
a full realization of his danger by a stern
command to halt, with the accompaniment
of clicking rifle and revolver hammers.
He stopped at once and recognized by
their actions two of the worst despera
does ever at large on earth. The highway
men took the gold, robbed the passengers,
hound and gagged the driver, and forced
his body into the hollow stump of a cotton
wood tree.
Then the thieves sat down and began to
speculate on a plan to get the boodle safely
away. He heard somebody yell: "Oh,
God!"
The whole business had been a realistic
dream. He had fallen asleep and slid down
into the boot of the stage, where he had be
come firmly wedged in among the mail bags.
The gea in his mouth was a monstrous chew
of tobacco, which was nearly strangling
him. The voice that awakened him be
longed to a nervous passenger, who had be
come alarmed at the rough riding.-Salt
Luako Tribune.
ABORIGINE$S AND COPPER.
An Interesting bliscovery of Tools In the
TKeweeuaw Mines.
A peninsula called Keweenaw point, jut
ting into Lake Superior from the southern
shore toward the northeast, is famous as
the center of a vast copper mining indus
try, says the Chicago News. Last year the
mines produced no less than 105,586,000
pounds of refined copper, and it is eati
mated that duringnext year the production
will be increased by at least 20 per cent. I
E. B. Hinsdale, who contributes to the 7
latest bulletin of the American Geograph
ical society an article on the subject, has
much that is interesting to say about the
numerous prehistoric mines which have
been found in this region.
These ancient mines, judging from their
extent, must have been worked for centu
ries. Who the workers were no one can
tell. They seem to have known nothing of
the smelting of copper. What they sought
were pieces that could be fashioned by cold
hammering into useful articles and orna
ments. They understood the use of fire in I
softening the rocks to enable them to break
away the rock front the masses of copper.
They could not drill but used the stone
hammer freely.
More than ten cart loads of stone ham
merse were found in the neighborhood of
the Minnesota mine. In one place the ex
cavation was about fifty feet deep and at
the bottom were found timbers forming a
sonaffolding, and a large sheet of copper
was discovered there. In another place, in
one of the old pits, was found a mass of
copper weighing forty-six tone. At another
point the excavation was twenty-six feet
deep.
In another opening, at the depth of eigh
teen feet, a mass of copper weighing over
six tons was found, raised about five feet
from its native bed by the ancients, and se
cured on oaken pro: s. Every projecting
point had been taken off, so that the ex
posed surface was smooth. Whouver the
workers may have been, many centuries
must have passed since their mines were
abandoned. The trenches and openings
have been filled up or nearly so. Mon
strous trees have grown over their work and
fallen to decay, other generations of'trees
springing up. When the mines were redis
covered decayed trunks of large trees were
lying over the works, while a heavy growth
of live limber stood on the ground.
Success in Teaching How to Cook.
Superintendent Joseph, of the public
schools of New York City, reports that the
teaching of cookery has been wholly suc
cessful in the schools, It forms a part of
the work of the girls in the second and third
grammar grades. The real object of the
study is commendable. It is not so much
the ability to make palatable dishes,
though that is certainly to be desired, as it
is the thorough understanding of food val
ues, the choice of raw material with refer
ence to their nutritive qualities, their com
position and chemical changes together with
their effect upon the body. All these, and
much more are taught. The physiology of
feeding is another topic of Instruction, and
the young girls in these classes understand
as well as anyof nsdo that wonderfulchem
ist y of the body which transmutes bread
into blood and even into thought.
Quick--Witted.
When a certain actor, now famous, mrade I
his first appiearance some critical person
threw a cabbage head at him. As it fell on
the starge the actor picked it up anrd stepped
forward to the footlights. Lie raised his
hand to command silence, and wien his
tormentors prnaused to hear what hlie had to
say, exclaimed, pointing to the cabbage
head:
"Ladies and gentlemen, I expected to
ploese you with my acting, but I confess I
