J., September 4, lJMJU Although the shore "season" of HR?t* is scheduled to end with Labor day, Mon day, this city, because it is chiefly a cot tage resort, will feel the effect less than any other place along the Jersey coast. The bulk of the summer residents who rent cottages lease them until Septem ber 15, and few of the hundreds of cot tagers who own their summer homes ever leave before the first of October. The main exodus will take place a week after Labor day. This has been one of Ix>ng Branch's best summers. The crowds have not fall en off at all yet.

Xonagenarian authors are sufficiently rare; but France can boast of one who runs Sir Theodore Martin very close in point of age. M. G Molinati was born in 1819, and published his first book in 1843; yet he still edits the Journal des Economistes, and contributes largely to its pages. Another regular contributor to the same review is M. IVederie Passy, who is only two years short of ninety. Two French lmoks by octogenarian authors were published last June. M. Kmile Olliver, who is eighty-five, issued the fourteenth volume of "L'Empire Liberal," written, he tells us, in five nonths, and M. Emile Levesseur published iiii exhaustive work on wages.

It was not "Bob" Womack's luck to make a stake at Cripple Creek. For more than thirty years before the discovery of gold there he had known every foot of the country. He had ridden all over It and knew it by heart, for the Womack horses and cattle ranged back of Pike's Peak. The Womack cabin stood near the middle of what Is today Colorado's rich est mining district, and the Womack horse pasture inclosed a good part of the site of the present city of Cripple Creek. When the sudden boom of Cripple Creek was heard around the world "Bob" Wo mack stayed on, but he never had any luck. Stratton. who as a carpenter and small contractor had never made much of a success of anything, drifted up from Colorado Springs, stumbled one day over a hi: of rock which was to be the key to the Independence mine and died many times a millionaire. Outsiders came in and located and bought claims that made them rich, capitalists followed, smelters and reduction works sprang up. hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of gold were taken from tiie land about Cripple Creek that ??Hob" Womack had known since boyhood, but nine years after the llrst ! bucketful of ore was hoisted he dies on the spot poorer than when he tlrst settled there. In every mining camp in the west sto ries of I he poor man's luck abound. They are commoner than paying mines in Colo rado and Nevada and California. The poor prospector s imagination Is forever tired by the dream that some day it will come his turn to "fall into it." like Strat ton, or in hunting for a lost burro to light on a Holy Moses mine like t.'reede, or to break loose a piece of gold-bearing quartz by accident with his boot heel, as a new bonanza king of Ntvada did a few years ago. It is t!:e chance of drawing the big prize in the lottery that keeps men hunting for gold all their lives long on a grubstake of bacon and beans. What Womack missed finding only shows how mucii luck counts in the game and keeps others playing it until they die. Boyd is a bright little fellow of three years. One day his mother observed him vigorously scratching iiis head, and asked: "What makes you scratch your head?" "Because I'm the only one that knows it itches," he replied quickly.? Delineator. ?
