IUTnunvr. N. B.. Dec. '20. The recent ship

at $30,000 recalls tho famous Napier nuecot
found In the Australian diggings forty years

Snmuel II Ho has resided in this town nearly
all his Ilfo and was onco olected to the Now
llrunswlck Legislature, but his chief fnmo
losts on the fnct that ho onco upon n timo
picked up the biggest chunk of gold that had
ever, up to then, gladdoned tlio heart of man.
"It was In ia".4." said Mr. Napier, "that I
left this countiv for Australia on tho bark
Marco I'olo, which, w bun condemned nbout te.i
yenrs auo, was believed to be the oldest sailing
ernft afloat. Hho was no chicken, oven In tho
fifties. I sailed four voyages from Liverpool to
Melbourne, chiefly as purser and second mntc.
before I cnught tho mining fevor. In lH.ri7 I
started for tlio diggings nnd remained thoren
year nnd a half. I went tj Uendlgo llrst nnd
then staked a clnlm nt Kingowor. nbout forty
miles from tho Ilondigo diggings, on un arm of
tho Murlmbcdglc called the Lodden. I had
been at Klugowcr about six months when I
found thocelebrnted Nnpleror Blanche Barklev

the bottom ot tho shaft moro dend than alivo
from tho heat. VI d Ambrose lit his pipe and
leaned against the sldoof the holo for a rest.
Just then I htruck something with my pick. I
turned it up so tho light could strike it. and by
jlmminy frost! It was ahunkofcold asblgns

"Well, that minuto I know onr fortune wns
mado. Old Ambioso feot exelted, and jumped
around till I thought he'd have the who'e dig
gings down upon ns. ('hurley ami Ikentcool
and covered thii nugget up In tho enith nnd
didn't go nigh it for tho rest of tho day. fier
night we lugged the benutv to out tent und
covered It up In tlio bedding That evening
wus a mlghrv anxious one, for the boys were
liable to liquidate, and we didn't know what
minute thcyd come in nnd turn our whole
e.ilioose upside down About midnight we sot
to work as unlet ns possible with oui picks and
sunk n shaft down about six feet under

tlielu were plenty of tough subjects at the dig

tiler had guessed ourseciet.
"well, nbout tho mlililln of Novembc wo
bought a horse and carl and lit out for Mel
bourne, having in tlio meantime due out our
claim and piled up enough ot the yellow stuff
to carrv us tu Londo.i It took us four days and
four nights to teacli Melbourne, and I hardly
slept u wink on the way. Tho nugget was
packed up In a rough box with some old

Considerable Interest had bean manifested
Id Mr. Huburbanlte's woodhouso during the
week. At Intervals during tho fair moments
eaoh day that that gentleman was nt home,
hammering had been heard and the nolso.ot
metal pounded aenlnst isetnl. Th8uburbn
Ites' hoii'o being In n park, thero was noth
ing to separate their property from thnt of
tholr noxt-door neighbors, and many of tho
other residents found It convenient to walk
cross tho Suburbanites' plco on their way
to the train, just to see If they could discover
what was golnc on. But they couldn't. The
place was as secret the dungeon of tho In-fjulsltlon-morn
so. In fn:t. for lots of things
that are so and are not so havo boen mltton
about those famous plaecs. while nothlntr
whatever could to told ot Mr. Suburbanite's
woodhouse. t
l'lnally tho noise was hentd no longer In tho
woodhouse. nnd Mr. Suburbanite ngnln spoko
to his nearest nclgliuots.thoughhedlit seem lo
carry a secret. In faet. ho went to the wcokly
progressive puchro Prly and won the booby
nrlzo with his usual equanimity. Evidently
things were going on well at the Suburbanites',
whatever thins were.
At tiiif nnmA thn fttnrm. As nne mar rnmiim.
ber. It occurred on Thanksgiving evening, and
repeated Itself on Saturday, so that almost
every man In tho country, or even In the sub
urbs, mndo the snow nn excuse and stayed at
homo from church. Mr. Suburbanite did so,
but Instead of joining his neighbors on tho
front stdownlk nnd shovelling snow to tho ac
companiment of merry quip nnd jest, he was
observed to go to tho back of tho house and dis
appear. Col. Barry, who was just tying string
around his ankles to keen the snow out ot his
trousers, wns the first to see him. The Colonel
lives across the way from Suburbanite, and
liavingbocn'lhe flrstlto lure him out to Cold-chester-on-tho-Souud.
naturally took nn In
terest ln his w'elfaro nn Intorcst largely tinc
tured with personal feeling, for tho Colonel
wns the original owner ot the park, and was
anxious that none of his tenants and ginntees
should get away from him. Bo he called to
Lieut. King to keep an eye ou Suburbanite.
Tho Lieutenant had just put his bicycle
clips on his trousers, nnd was approving his
Ingenuity, when n sound from tlio rear of Sub
urbanite's place attracted attention nil down
the line. Tho Colonel stood speechless, tho
Lleutennnt lot his bicycle clips go, tho retired
minister (reformed minister, the neighbors
called him) dropped his broom, and the news
paper man on histwarto the train halted and
looked around in nstontshmont. Llttlo by lit
tle they all gathered In front of the Colonel's
and looked at one another.
"I don't like to say what I think Is the mat
ter with Suburbanite." began the Colonel, "but
If that Is not n mowing machine I'll be"
"Ilomcmbor the dootor," cried the news
paper man. who was the newest comer.
"Don't mind me." cried tho retired minister.
"Colonel. 1 ngroo with you. It tertnlnly Is n
lawn mower."
"What In nny old place Is Suburbanite do
ing with n lawn mower to-day'r" was the final
question, nnd resolving Itself into a committee
il tho wholo house, the aggregation (excepting
tho newspaper man. who had to go to town)
ninrched upon the Suburbanite place. The
Colonel nnd the letlred minister went first,
the Lieutenant and the stockbroker followed.
3iul the commission meichnntnnd tho produce
dealer tngged nloog behind. There were oth
ers in tlio distance. Put. as the Colonel said:
"We don't want to bring everybody In tho plnco
down on him if he really has gone crazy." This
was very thoughtful of the Colonel, and tho
neighbors npnreclatod It.
Just ns the procession, armed with shovels
and brooms, reached the (Suburbanite gate, tho
dootor drove tip in a sleigh.
"Mrs. Barry telephoned to me I'd hettercome
over at once. What's uuf" he exclaimed.
They told him.
"Huh! Walt till I Het some bromide for him."
he said. "I supposo he's been working tco
hard."
"I BupposeTnpes won't publish anything
about this to-morrow." said the retired minis
ter, referring to tho newspaper man.
"Of courso not." said the Colonel promptly.
"But, doctor, suppose you let Puison ( nwles
take your sleigh and drive down to tho station
nnd nsk hitu. from the park, not to snyn word
about it foi his wife's sake. You won't need
Lour trap for some timo nnd Cawlescan drive
ack and keen your horse from catching cold."
All right," said the doctor: and having got
the bromide nut he gav'o up his place- to tlio
broker, who drove nv.ay ln the direction of the
station, Tho others meantime prepared to
continue their inarch of mercy, only now the
doctor and tho letircd minister went first.
They turned the corner of tho house and
stopped. Before them moved n cloud of
snow, out of which came the noise that nono
of them could mistake, tho noise of In lawn
mower. The nolehlorB stood aghast. It nil
soemed uncanny. What wus it Was. It relr'
The cloud of snow apjuoached the proces
sion und when within a few feot of the head
eamo lo a halt. As the cloud subsided fiom
tho midst of It appeared by degrees tho faco
and llgure of Mr. Suburbanite.
"Hello!" said that gentleman breathlessly.
"Hello!" replied the Procession ns ono mnn.
"What's tho matter?'' nskrd the (yolonol.
pushing his way between the doctor and tho
retired minister.
Matter.' Where?" cried Suburbanite.
'There's nothing the matter here '
"Look heie. Sub." said tho Colonel kindly,
but llrmly. "what nre vou doing with a lawn
mower to-day" And ho laid his hand on
bnburbanlteVarm.
"Lawn mower! Liwn mower be smashed 1"
cried Suburbanite. "This is no lawn mower
at least, it Isn't ono now: it's my new rotary
wowploiiglil I made It in j self out of my lawn
mower and have been trying It hro before
uflng It out in the Mrcot. How did you know
I was trying It'"
"Wo heard it." said the Colonel.
"Natutallv tut reeling that there could be
only ono resson forn man using a lawn mower
after n snow.stoini." said tho dcetor. slipping
tho bioiniiie bottle Into his coat iioeket. "we
came prepared foi iinvthlng. No.vwewantto
know how tho new invention works "
Suburbanite explained his machine.
"Hrsi off." ho snlil. "I put n longer axle to
the cuttiiic blades so that the ends might ex
tend bevond the bearing points, nnd on tho
ends of the axle I put lotnry knives. Now. ns
I push thn machine the knlveb just chop tho
snow up nnd throw it our of tho way. At least,
that's what tin y should do. but ns a mutter of
fact they just throw It into the air right in rov
faco. I got the lilen of knives on tho ends of
the nxles from mv history of England ; the an
cient Britons bad knives on their war
chariots, you know; lut I guess they had 'em
nn dllTorcnt'y fiom mine, because they couldn't
havo driven tho chariots veiy fast If all tho
Pieces of the enemy were thrown Into the
drivers' faces as thev ploughed through tho
ranks of their foe "
"I think a belter thing would be a hay chop
per." said tho produce dflalor. "Hut n hay
cutter on runners and push It ahead : tho snow
would slide Into t bo hopperand iouroutat tho
other end."
"Get );our feet wet," muttered the Colonel.
"That's the trouble with this thing." con
fessed Suburbanite, sadl). "but thon, you
know, this is au experiment." he ndded, mere
cheerfully.
.. "Not a bad Idea." snld the retired minister.
Now. If you could take off that rnllsi.or, bet
,ter still, inn n hot water Pipe iuto It. so that
the snow would ho melted as vou moved the
iBwnmowor (ilong, I think It would provo feasi
ble, lluw do vou Und it now" he asked.
It's a llttlo heavy." suld Suburbanite,
"Let me ti) It." said tlio Colonel, elbowing
Suburbanite out of the wny Tho commit
tee watched him as ho pushed the machine a
ard or two.
"The idea. Is all riclit," .ho announced,
when he had got bis breath. It needs devel
opment Vou ought to have luoxhsustlble oil
pins here and bore. Hub," ho ndded, jiointlng
to '.ho machine with his shovel. The retired
minister took the machine then.
"It's just us Barry says," he remarked, as
ho Jirlpod his fncii. "Now, bore." waving u
broom, "if this cutting knife were at an angle
to tho longer axis of the machine, thn snow
would he thrown off to ono side, and not Into
the opeiator's face. Still, Mr. Suburbanite,
'tis good Idea, I shall be Interested in see
ing it worked out."
Tho doctor had been trying the lawn mower
while the retired minister ws talking, and put
In with Sub, old man, nut spikes nil over the
perimeter ot tho roller, the wny they do on a
steam roller i then they would prevent the tna
chlno from slipping backward and would tear
up the snow and make it easier for the knives
to hstirtlo It,"
"With your permission, Mr. Buburbnlt."
said I.lout Mnc. who did not know the In
ventorso well us theothors, nud when lie had
mad tils essay, he suggested-
That's all very well as fur as it goes, but
why. not use a larger slzo nud hitch a horse
to It,-"
"You forget, sir." said the Colonel, "that
horses ro not allowed In the nark "
Now. I don't agree with King," cried tho
commission man. "It seems to me to be
heavy enough. But If you could use two
smaller machines, fastened together so that
tlio knhas would meat In a point In root, thtn

, "HI. doctor." shoutod Mr. Cawles. stopping
In front of tho gate, "Hero's your horse.:'
"Tie him." rilled back tho dostor. "Then
come In hero."
With Mr. Cawles eamo three or four other
residents of the park. Interested In anything
that went on In tho placo. Thoy oxnmlncd tho
machine critically, ns ovory committor gets
nccustomod to looking nt now ideas for mak

all had suggestions. All tnn suggestions
were good. They were not all feasible, but all

suffered ton much together tu be Jealous of ono

They stood nronnd dlseusslng tlio points of
Iho mnohlno, nnd Suburbanite allowed any one
who wished to to try It. so that In tin courso of
tho mnrnlna qulto n stretch o' patch In, his
back yanl had been ploughed up nnd rolled

committee and its accretions hastoncd to tho
front to llnd neighboring resident, who did
not live is tho pirk, cutting n way through
the snow with a plough und n palrnf oxen,
"Mornln'," ho said. Tho oomnvltteo returned

"Now. that," said tho retired minister, there

he waved his hnnd town rd tho hick of Suburban

nOSTOY ANCIENTS MAKING ItEADT.
The Glorious Time They Are Going to Give
Their London Visitors In 1000.
Boston. Dco. L'4. Although a roar nnd a half
will pass beforo tho Honourublo Artillery Com
pany of London will visit this country, tho
Committee) of Arrangements of tho. Boston
Anelonta has already got down to hard work,
and in mnklng n detailed plan for tho reception
nnd entertainment of the visitors. Col. Sidney
M. Hedges is Chairman of tho General Com
mittee of tho Boston Company. Ho planned
tho visit to London, and later, ns Chnirmnti of
tho London Committee, attended to the execu
tion ot his pinna In a way that mndo the trip a
success. Tho Ancients ndd that It was an
eventof international importance, nnd liolped
mnterlnlly to strengthen tho kindly foellng be
tvveon tho two countries. In tho same spirit
Col. Hedges wnnts It to bo undoistood that tho
coming visit Ik not n local Rffnlr, but nStnto
and national event, for ono ot tho principal
things in tlio programme Is a trip by special
train that will tako in most of tlio largo cities
ns fnv west ns Chicago.
ThoI.oiido.i and Boston companies aro In con
stant correspondonco regarding the visit, nnd
so far ns lnld out now tho plan In briof provides
thnt the London company, to tho number of
nbout 150. shall nrrlvo at Boston by stenmer
probably in July. 11)00. Thoy will remnln here
about n week and during that time will bo on
teitulned nt a banquet by tho Boston Anclonts.
Thoclty nnd Commonwealth will nlo extond
courtesies to tho London visitors. At thocloso
of the Boston visit Iho Ancients will start on ti
tour by special train, run In Iwo sections,
und Incidentally it is the intention that
tills train shall be one of the finest of tho kind
ever run in this country. Tlie forward section
will consist of a combination huffot nud stnte
room sleeping car. n dining car. with privato
dining nnd sleeping rooms for the dignitaries,
followed by thteo sleeping cars nnd ln Iho rear
nu observation car In whlth will bo stenogra
phers, typewriters and a piano. Tho second sec
tion of tho train will be mado up of tho finest
parlor, sleeping nnd dining cars tha country
can produce. i
Montreal will he tho first stop. Niagara
rails, Chicago. St. Louis. Pittsburg. Gettys
burg, the Luruy envern of Vlrglnln. Washing
ton, Philadelphia and Now York nre the princi
pal places nt which long stops will b. made,
though many of tho smaller cities on the way
will havo nn opportunity to welcome the Eng
lish visitors. From Washington, Mount Vernon
will be visited. and from New York n trlpup
the Hudson will bo made to West l'olnt. Tho
entire tour will bolreoof cost to the English
men, nnd no effort will bo spared to niaUo tho
trip a memorable one.
Tho Boston Ancients havo not nut much
stock In recent statements that tho Trlnco
of vvnlcs will visit this country next jcai.
but bollovu ho Is much moro likely to
wait nnd como with tho Honourable Artil
lery Company, or which ho Is tho Cnptnln
Gencral and Colonel. If ho should not
como It Is very likely thnt some other mem
ber of tho royal family will be round with tho
London men. Tho Earl of Denbigh nud Des
mond Is Lieutenant-Colonel in command, and
Iml Colvlllo of Culross Is l'resident of the
Court of Assistants, mndotipof ox-offlclo mem
bers and twentf-four elected members.
Tho Honourable ArtllloryCompunv of London
has u distinct and well-defined military
Mainline In England, nud has hnd slneo tlio
days of King Henry VIII.. when Itschnrterwas
arnrifnd. In 1!Vt7 Ttu ennaHtiitlnn la milium
and l'uriiiimcnt hns no control over Its affairs,
ns they nro governed by nnl warrant. From
the time when Charles. Prince of Wnles. mid
James. Duko of York, joined It In 1041, tho
I'linco of Wales hns always held command ns
Captain-General. The company for moro than
a hundred ) ears was known as tho Fruternltv
or Guild of St. George, but In 108.1
tho title of Honourable was applied to the com
pany, which It ha.3 siuco borne. The company
has been called out on nuuiy occasions to up
hold the civil authority. Tho mombersgave n
Kood account of themselves in the Gordon riots,
nnd during the last, nud for a considerable part
of thn pie-ent century, thoy constituted about
theonly military foreo on which the) civil au
thorities of London could icly for assistance.
One of the most Important ovents connected
with tho company dining tlio reign of (Juenu
vletoiln was the resumption by tho sovereign,
in IM4!i. or the npjioliitmentof tho oflleors. tho
company for some time previously having
uh-ctud company and subaltern officers.
Thero havo been at times controversies as to
tlienillltar) standing or the company, but this
loint wns settled In lHA'l by tho promulgation
of the following order: "Her Mnjesty has been
plensed to command that the Honourable Ai

In such numbers thnt thoy woro the torror ot

lick, nnd sluughlor elk by the score as they
passed along or came In to lick tho salt. Wash

that great elk lick.
Nelson was In nt the death of what was un
doubtedly tho last oil: left In the Pennsylvania
forests. This was In November. 1854. Ho
was hunting nnd trapping in tho vicinity of
what was known as Flag Swnmn, nt tho head
of Bennett's Creek, along In October, and ono
day ho heard the peculiar whistle that a bull elk
mukosat tliit time or tho year, tho call for a
mate. A heavy .rain that lasted several
days came on, nnd prevented tho dogs from
getting tho trail ot tho elk. Thn news that
there was still ono moro elk loft In tho Slnnema
honlng country spread among tho hunters, and
the woods ffero searched ln all directions, but
no one struck the trail. Among theso old-tlmo
huntere was Jim Jacobs, a tull-bloodod Seneca
Indian, whoso home was on tho Cattaraugus
reservation With anothor Indian, ho went
down Into tho Ponnsvlvanla wilderness to hunt
for tho last ulk. In a snowstorm ono day In
tho latter part o! November they struck tho
elk's trail fresh In tho snow, near Nelson's
cabin, nnd the chase began. Nelson joined tho
Iudlaus. although ho was not wanted.
Tho elk baffled pursuit for three days, dur
ing two of which tho trail was followed
through a blinding snowstorm, but tho huntois
were as tireless as their game, and on the
fourth day tho elk wns brought to bay by the
dogs at a rock in tho forest near tho mouth of
tho Clarion Illver. Whon tho hunters came up
tho elk was surrounded by the docs, which It
was fighting fiercely. Two of the pack al
ready lay dend on the snow. Nelson raised his
rifle to shoot, but tho Indian Jacobs was too
quick for him, and sont a rltlo bullet through
the elk's heart beforo Nelson's rifle cracked.
Tho last elk died defying Its enemies.
Nelson killed VSI elk In his time, and hun
dreds of deer and bears. Nineteen panthers
and more than a hundred wolves were nlso part
ot his score, nil of them killed in what Is now
known ns tho hemlock belt of Pennsylvania.
Another thing that mado tho old woodsman lo
cally famous was tho fact that for more' than
forty years he woie tho same hat. It wnsahlgh
hat. and of tho modo of fifty yenrs ago. nnd was
o' tho best make of a hatter who In his day
was celebrated not only In this country, but
also abroad. This hat was onlv ono of many
llko It that woro worn in the Tine Creek coun
try years ngo. and oven to this day specimens
of them, battered and time-worn, may be seen
on tho bonds of teamsters, bark peelers, chop
pers and others employed ln tho woods nnd at
and nbout tho sawmills and tnnneiies In that
region. Nelson's hat. llko the rest, had an In
teresting history.
The story of tho coming ot Olo Bull, tho v lo
llnlst. nnd his colony of Norwegians into tho
Potter county wilderness nearly half a cen
ury ago. his purpose being to estnblish nn Ideal
homo there for his countrvmon. has been often
told, nnd Is familiar. Among thosn who came
with Olo Bull Into the wilderness was Henry
Andeisen. n young Norwegian, who was the
great man's secretary nnd personal represen
tative and agent in all transactions with tho
colony. Tho main settlement of the colonists
was at Cnrtor's Camp, on Kettlo Creek, which
they named Oleona. Thero a largo goneral
store was established nnd stocked with goods
to supply the demands of the settlers. Tho
wilderness was unbroken for miles around,
except by tho small settlements of tho coin
nlsts. Tho nearest railroad station was Corn
ing. N. Y fifty miles distant.
At about the time Olo Bull started his colony
on Kettlo Creok Jenny I.lnd caino to this
country Olo Bull was in Now York. Tho
first concert to be given by Jonny Llnd nt Cas
tlo Garden had been announced. An until
then comparatively unknown New Y'ork liuttor
named Genln. Ii3d made himself Uio talk of the
town and tho countiy by buvlng tho first
ticket for that concert nnd paying S'J50 for it.
Thowido advertising this gave Genln made his
hats the fashion, nnd laid tho foundation of the
large fortune ho derived from thorn. The Genln
Incident sharing with the great songstress tho
tnlk ot the town. Ole Bull becamo jiosscssed of
tho idea that his colony's store In the Pennsyl
vania wilderness nt Oleoun must havo a sup
ply of G.cnln's high hats. Ho nmclinsod twelvo
dozen of the hats, the wholesale price of
which was $48 n dozen, and shipped them to
Oleona. By tho time the shipment got to its
destination tho freight charges had Increased
the cost of the hats to something like $00 a
doren. rntortiinatcly for tho Investment, tho
colonists could not see propriety or consis
tency in their wearing Genln ultni-fashlonnlilo
beaver lints nt their work of chopping down
trees nnd grubbing out 6tumps. especially ns
tho prico of the hats wus more than tho land
tny were clearing cost them, so they iiur
chascd none, nud tho hats wero stowed away
The colonization experiment resulting within
a year or two In disastrous failure, the colo
nists, after a three ) cars' struggle for exist
ence In tho wilderness, sold their lauds lor
what they could get and moved away. But
Hnnrv Andorsen remained nt Oleona nnd con
tinued to run the backwoods store and tavern
until his deuth, threo scars ngo. Tho hemlock
nud Pino lumber nttructcd cunltnl to the Ket
tlo Creek country, und tho Oleona btore be
camo a profitable base of supplies. Not long
after this chance In tho aspect of.tho region
como about Petresen thought ho might bo
able to realize something on the stock or Gonln
high lints, and had an auction sale of them

Doan Bussell ot tho Toachora' Collcca In his

ono or two other schools of pedagogy In this
country, and tho University of Jen J. In Ger
many, have smalt' departments whore school

elaborate courso of Instruction provided In the
Horace Mann School, tho model school o' tho
Teachers' Collogo. In It tho student teachers
muyobsorvoovery stop In an cdituitional de
