A MIINIG EPIBODI.
Xnef It Alene fgrsIwtr( itr er ass d T~ta. louosa4. ,.,loº asa. In 1848 A: J5. Mlltby, who for many years has lived at Woody, opened a gold mine lyinlg i the ridge between White river and Bg gulch, In Kern tounty, and from it extracted a great deal of gold sagr the Be. kerAeeld Californian. When water was struck the ground was stoaed above, and then work ceased. Mr. Maltby, however, always felt confident that there was an abundance of rich rook still deeper down in the yelp, and receptly with other parties, started a shaft and tunnel to tap the mite below the old workings. The pay ehute is found to be about sixty feet long, with a vein from five to twenty four inches wide and at present carrying a seam of ore about five inches thick that will mill over I800 a ton in gold. Mr. Maltby has brought samples here. The quartz i lively and earries seams of oxide of Iron which are literally full of sold. The specimens are very handsome and withal of good size. The ground from the tunnel to the old works has been stoped out, the last run of thirty-eight tons yielding 221 ounces of gold bullion, valued at $2,762, or over $78 per ton. In this run there was no assorting, all of the quarts that was mined being sent to mill. In the bottom of the tunnel the ledge continues as good as above, the rich seam especially well holding Its own. Thee seems to be no reason why this mine should not yield a handsome profit. No Need to Shoot. "The most remarkable adventure I know of was that of a 10-year-old boy in Colo rado," said Rienzi deauchamp, a guest at she Leland, to a St. Louis Globe-Democrat teporter. "A party of us had gone from Pueblo for a week's hunting and fisehing along the Arkansas river. We carried tents and camped out. A man named Britton took his young son with him, a manly little fel low, who could land a trout and bring down an antelope with the beet of us. One day he got separated fom the party. lost his way and spent the night in the mountains. He had with hin a short 88-caliber rifle, a good weapon for small game, but the section where we were camped mountain lions were plentiful. His father was well-nigh dis tracted, and we searched all night lone }y, pt`bhe adventat ous youngster without avail. JuM at sun up we statted to return to camp. As we descended a ravine we discovered the object of our search, sound asleep, with his head pillowed on an enormous mountain lion, which was curled up as though enjoy ing anap. Three of us approached cautious ly to within fifty yards, drew a bead on the animal, and, at a given signal, lied. The brute never stirred. The boy, whom we supposed dead, half rose, robbed his eyes and inquired peevishly: ."What ale yon fellows tryin' t' do? I killed this yere lion four hours ago." Man's Wonderful stomach. The human stomach possesses most won derful powers of adaptation to circum stances. When Lieut. Bligh and his eight een men were cast off from the Bounty by the mutineers in an open boat, they sub sisted for forty-one days on a daily allow anoe of one-twenty-fifth of a pound of bis cuit per man and a quater of a pint of water. Dr. Tanner in 1880 fasted for forty days, subsisting, it is said, on water alone, and 5ucci and other fasting men have since excelled this. Kaffils, Noth American In dians, and the "fat boy" in "IPickwick" may well be quoted as fearful examples of voracity: but even their gastronomic feats a e exceeded by the full-grown Esquimaux. who will daily eat twenty pounds of flesh and oil if he has the chance; while, on the authority of Admiral Saritcheff, a Yakat of biberia has been known to consume in twenty-four hours "the hind quarter of a large ox, twenty pounds of fat, and a quan tity of melted butter for his drink."--Pub lie Opinion. The Rellgions of India. Some interesting facts as to the religions of British India ase developed by the recent censue returns. Out of the total popula tion of 287,000,000, "Hindooism" claims 207,000,000, but this is a loose term, mean ing. it has been said, "any religion which is not Mohammedan." Nature worship is very common,emong the ruder tribes. Is lam figures with 57,000,000, Buddhism with 7,000,000, and Christianity with only 2,250, 000. There are 17,180 Jews, and the Par sees amount in all to 89,887. The Theists, Agnostics and ihe like are only 289 all told. 1lrahmos, or professors of reformed Hin dooism, count only 4,301, while the newly founded sect of the Arvalns is represented by about 40,000 adherents. Considering the comparatively short time that Christ ianity has had access to India, the fi ct that it already claims nearly one per cent of the population shows remarkable success for its missionaries. A I'rehistoric City in Oregon. William Hanley, of Ashland, Or., who has just returned from a trip through east ern Oregon, reports that on the desert near Silver Lake the site of an ancient city has been discovered. One side of the square has been traced for four or five hundred yards. The top is just above the surface and is about four feet wide. made of cement similar to those of Arizona and Mexico. The city evidently antedates the Aztecs and Toltece. No thoroughbred geologist has yet visited the ruins. The cowboys have done a little prospecting on their own hook. Among other things found is the imprint of the cement work, showing that the hod carriers of those days went barefooted. A cast of a large-sized trowel was also found. It r4 quite likely the city was built upon the shore 1W Silver Lake, whioh is now distant about thirty miles. To Correct Iound Shoulder" By raising one's self leisurely upon the toes in a ;erpendicular position several times a day this deformity could be easily rectified. To do this eroperly one must bo in a perfectly upright position, the arms dropping at the side. The heels well to gether and the toes forming an angle of 45 degrees. The uies should be made very slowly and from the balls of both feoot, und the descent should be socomplished in the same way, without swaying the body out of its perpendicular line. It can he modified, too, by stanointr first on one leg, then on the other. Inflating and raisilg the chest at the same time is a part of the exercise, and if persevered in will ultirmately show an increased chest measurement, development of lung power, and a perfectly straight and erect figure.--Boston Transcript.
