ilTJiMSTITIOV TKAriCUKIt. A V stern o Pentr Condurtur TelU of lb WblnM ef TouH.U. (From the PUUibur Poet.1 No one but the eaperlaneed paeienger conductor knows uit how whlmeleal and cranky th travelling publlo really ii. A traveller may have tome pecu liar (ad or notion when he Is on the road, but he never dreanta that there re thousand of others Juit like htm, or prrhaps worse. In years of exper ience the conductor rubs elbows with all sorts of people, and in spite of him self becomes a mind and face reader, who takes a back seat from no one ex cept the professional. "Yes, travellers are superstitious and cranky," said a veteran knight of the punch. In response, to a query by a re porter. "I think the average passenger conductor deals with more oddities dally than the curio collector of a freak show.' As for superstition, I think there Is more of it crops out on trains than anywhere else. Last week, just as the train was ready to pull out for Chicago, a well-dressed man came out of the coach on the platform, and In an agitated manner asked me what day it was. "I told him it was Friday, and with out another word he reentered the coach and in a moment returned with Ms luggage, and by way of explanation stated that he never began a journey on Friday, and would wait until the next morning. That Is only a sample. The much-mooted unlucky thirteen Is perhaps the cause of more worry and Inconvenience to tourists than any oth er sign which they deem of 111 omen. I have known passengers to begin at the head of the train to see It they could find number thirteen anywhere. "If the engine happened to be thir teen they would resignedly wait for the next train, and if they succeeded In finding number thirteen on any of the coaches they would hold up their hands in holy horror. I have seen passengers refuse to ride in a coach which held thirteen passengers, and If you will ask any ticket man he will tell you that of all sections In a sleeper thirteen is the most difficult to dispose of. "Then aside from the superstition which prevails among the travelling public there are countless passengers who are cranky, and if they lose a chance to kick are in a bad humor for a week afterward. They kick for a seat in the center of the coach; kick because the train goes too slow or too fast; kick because they are in a draught, or because it is too hot. And the worst of it all is that when they kick I am the individual who is called up to hear them, as if I were responsi ble for the whole business. "About the only time when some fel lows" don't kick is when they are on their honeymoons. Everything goes on as smoothly as if it had been ordered so, but let the same men ride on the came train five years later and the chances are they'll kick themselves in to exhaustion." Outlines for a Dime Novel. : 'Prom fne Chicago Becord. ''.. . t. . '' ' Asi he rode slowly over the trail the crack of a rifle was heard. Bill Daltoi; lay dead with a ball through his temple, , The -next morning Bill Dalton arose, and, though somewhat pained by the wound through his head, set forth to find his Comrades. As he reached the canon his horse shied and lost his foot ing, Horse and rider went toppling down 2,000 feet to instant death. III. Bruised and wounded, he got up three hours later, and in a moment of des ' peration rode off twenty miles to the cave where his brother desperadoes lived. As he entered, a long, low "Hist!" came from, the deepest corher of .the cave. There was an instant's pause, the flash of a bowle and Bill Dalton bit the dust, never more to rise. IV. Somewhat feeble but strengthened by the fresh morning air, Bill Dalton left the cave next day.

A UK IT TIMQX OrATIIKXM, A Hu!n Millionaire Wba Voluntarily t'hee a Pauper's brave, From the Wewliter limlifit.) The sad story tcd by "Tlw Tele graph's" St Petersburg correspondent might have been Invented by ToUtul; but, from all appearances, it Is Oonpel truth. It begins with a pauper's funer al; but that pauper was once a well known manufacturer, a millionaire, a power in the capital of Itunsia, who scattered money to the right and to the loft, doing many a generous deed, never known or long since forgotten. His poverty and misery were' of his own choosing; Ingratitude drove him to Imi tate Tlmon of Athens, and to turn his back upon mankind. In the very height of prosperity he foil ill, and his recovery was despaired of. He made a will In favor of his wife, who was then no longer young, and of his children, whom he adored. Hs survived the crisis of his malady, and was able to move about, but his death was believed to be only a matter of months. The doctors sent him to a watering place for the summer season, not expecting him to return alive, and his wife and children shared the conviction of the physicians. Appointing a young man, who was bound to htm by the strongest ties of gratitude, to be director of the works, he left St. Petersburg alone. At first he became much worse, as everybody expected; then he rapidly Improved, In consequence of which he stayed on longer than had been his Intention. At the end of six months he returned home as hale and hearty as ever, eager to en joy lire with his family. But he found no family there. His wife had played the role of Potiphar's Bpouse In his ab sence, but the young director proved no Joseph. The guilty pair lived together openly, and succeeded In turning the children against their father. At first the woman had expected his death, and merely anticipated as she thought the course of action she would In that case pursue. Then,, finding she had gone too far to retreat, she simply de manded yearly allowance for herself, her paramour and thee hlldren. It was a terrible blow for S., but he acted with prompt decision, and without uttering a word of complaint or reproach. First of all, he dismissed the director. Then, calling the bookkeeper into his room he said: "Now, look here. You know what has taken place, but you don't know how It has effected me. The 'pair' counted on my death and were disappointed. They now. reckon on my riches, and I wish them to be disap pointed still more. As long as I possess anything I must make them an allow ance. Therefore I want to possess noth ing. If I squander my money they will apply to" the courts to have me de clared non compos mentis, and trustees will be appointed to look after every thing, and that, of course, is not what I want. Now listen. I am the sole owner of the works, etc., and J can do what I like with my own, and I want you to exert yourself to bring every thing to rack and ruin so that suddenly the whole concern will burst and leave nothing but dust behind. Mind, now, nothing must be left. Enrich yourself, let the cashiers enrich themselves.don't forget the workmen; do Just What you like; I will seqond you; but let the end be as I desire." And the bookkeeper went and carried out his employer's Instructions conscientiously. The manufacturer, seeing how things were going rubbed 'his hands with de light and paid his Wife the covenanted allowance. At the end of two years came the crash a complete crash, the very fragments of which could not be gathered up by his family. Before the matter became public he called a meet ing of his cashiers, bookkeeper, fore man and his wife and children. The latter were convinced that his object was to hand over the works to them, for he had more than once given them to understand as much, saying, "Take everything; r want nothing now." He opened the meeting by asking his cash iers for their reports. They declared the works so heavily in debt that it would be criminal to keep them going any longer on credit. "Very well, go at once to the court," he said to his book keeper, "and report my insolvency." His wife and children protested loudly and Indignantly. They would make things commercially right again if he would only give them the works. But he was Inexorable, the bookkeeper went, and six months later everything was sold for a(song. Thenr addressing his family, he said; "Now the time Is come for us to sepa rate. My dear wife can seek comfort with her unofficial spouse; you, dear est children, can take refuge under the wing of your loving mother. As for me . . ." Here he called his servant. "Is everything ready?", "Everything." Hand them here." The servant gave him a pair of top boots,, an old over coat and a shabby hat. "Where is the walhtt?" "Here, piaster." "And the staff?" "Here, please." He flung the wallet over his shoulders, took the staff in his hand, made the sign of the cross and kissed his did serVant. Then with out a word of farewell for his wife or children, he left the ' house forever. Many years have paased since then, and through them all 8. remained faith ful to the role, qf the "silent beggar." His wife died in misery long ago. A week or two ago the former millionaire himself found rest, at last in the poor man's grave, unwept, unnonored nay, unnoticed. '.' 5 . ' ' .; SERPHXTS ahb xot xjsnrous. Strange Muscular Power That Assists Them In Fascinating Their Victims. From the Fortnightly Review. The power of continuing motionless, with the lifted head projecting for ward for an indefinite time, is one of the most wonderful of the serpent's muscular feats,' and.li pne'of the high est importance to the animal, both when fascinating its victim and when mimicking some inanimate, object, as, for instance, the stem and bud of an aquatic plant; here It is only j-eferred to on acount of1 the effect; it produces on the human mind, as enhancing the serpent's strangeness. ' In- this attitude, with the round, unwinking eyes, fixed on the beholder's face, the effect may be very curious uridTrneanny: Ernest GlanvlIIe, ; a (South African writer, thus describes his -own -experi ences. When a.,oy he frequently went out into the bush in quest Pf game, and on one 01 ineae solitary excursions he sat down to rest in' the shade of a wil low on the bank pf a shallow "stream; sitting there with cheek resting on his hand he fell toto a boyish reverie,, Af- ter some time he became aware in a vague way that on the white, sandy bottom of the stream there was mreti'h ed a long, blaek line, which hud not been there at tirt. He continued for some time regarding u without recog nising what It was, but all st 'once, with an Inward shock, became fully conscious that he was looking at a largo snake. "Presently, without apparent motion, so softly and silently was It done, the snake reared Its head above the sur face and held it there, erect and still, with gleaming eyes fixed on me in question of what I ws. It 'flashed upon me then that It would be a good opportunity to test the pownr of the human eyo on a anake. and I set my self the task of looking It down. It was a foolish effort. The brouse head and sinewy nock, about which the wa ter flowed without a ripple, were as If carved In stone, and the cruel, unwink ing eyes, with the light coming and go. lug In them, appeared to glow the brighter the longer I looked. Oradual ly there enme over me a sensation of sickening fear, which, If I had yielded to It, would have left me powerless to move, but with a cry I leaped up, and, seizing a fallen willow branch, attack ed the reptile with a specie of fury. Probably the Idea or the Icantl origi nated In a similar experience of some native." The Icantl. it must be explained, Is a powerful and mnllgnnnt being that takes the form of a great servant and lies at night In some deep, dark pool, and should a man Incautiously ap proach and look down into the water he would be held there by the power of the great gleaming eyes, and linully drawn down against his will, powerless and speechless, to disappear forever In the black depths. xerAu.va mvsh ai, movxtaix. Sweet Nouniln, Like the Tinkling of Bells, S.ade by Home Mysterious Agency, (From the Virginia Enterprise. In the old Truckee mining district, down the Truckee river, near Pyramid lake, Is ' situated Nevada's musical mountain. This mountain was first dis covered by the white settlers In 1863, at which time there was some excite ment In regard to mines found in its neighborhood. The discoverers were a party of prospectors from the Corn stock. They had pitched their tent at the foot of the mountain, and for a few evenings thought themselves bewitch ed. Each evening, a little after dark, when the air was calm and all was quiet, a mysterious concert began. Out from the face of the big mountain were wafted soft strains that seemed, to cause the whole atmosphere to quiver as they floated over the camp. The music then appeared to pass over until It was far, far away, and almost lost in the distance, when, beginning with a tinkling as of many little silver bells, there would, be a fresh gush of sweet notes from the mountain. During the daylight hours little of the mysterious music was heard, and it was soon settled that it was not caused by the wind. A spring near which the explorers had pitched their tent afforded the only good camping grounds in the neighborhood, and as each new party of prospectors arrived at the spot the wonder grew. Some Piute Indians who came along and camped at the spring were found to be acquainted with the peculiar musical character of the mountain. They called It the "singing mountain." Some of the men collected In the camp became more interested in the mountain than in prospecting and gave most of their time to an investigation of the mystery of the musical sounds heard to proceed from it. They found that the whole face of the mountam was covered with thin flakes of a hard crystalline rock. There were great beds of these flakes. The investigators con cluded that the musical sounds heard proceeded from this loose material, huge drifts of which seemed to be gradually working their way down the steep face of the mountain. At all events, the strains heard at the foot of the mountain In the even ing's stillness seemed to be produced by the uniting and blending of the myriads of bell-like twinklings pro ceeding from the immense beds of slaty debris creeping glacier-like down the slope. This solution of the mystery1 of the musical mountain is the only one wor thy of notice. As no mines of value were found the district was, soon de serted and has since seldom been vis ited. Therefore few except the old time prospectors knew much about the "singing mountain." Life In Athens. From the Harlem Life. "Well, what are you thinking about now?" Inquired Xantippe sharply. - Socrates looked up It was evident that he had been kicking himself, men tally. "I was wishing," he said, with reckless disregard of the consepuences, "that I had caught on to that Platonic-affection idea before I married you." Perhaps no local disease has puzzled and baffled the medical profession more than nasal catarrh. While not Immedi ately fatal it is among the most nause ous and disgusting ills the flesh is heir to, and the records show very few or no cases of radical cure of chronic catarrh by any of the many modes of treatment until the introduction of Ely's Cream Balm a few years ago. The success of this preparation has been most gratify ing and surprising. No druggist is without it. Jyl7eod&w2w financial. ; Industrials Monopolised the Speculative Interest Manifested. .. , .- New York, July IS. The stack mar ket to-day was a tame affair, the indus trials monopolizing the little speculative interest that was manifested. In this group American Sugar was the sole feature, the stock after an early -decline to 99, rising to and closing at 102&, 46,000 shares .chamglng" hands. The buying of Sugar was a character usuallly classed as good In stock ex change parlance and some of the pur chases were traced to houses with Washington connections.-. Information received from that point to-day was to the effect that the hou will eventu ality accede to the senate's demands and the trust wiU get Ms protection or there will b no legislation, Whether this be so or not the fact remain that certain Interests are buying the stock as confidently as if the presi dent's signature were already affixed to the senate bill. Chicago Gas was firmer, nt one time selling up to on I'ltU-ugn advice that the universal gas oiilinance will be vetoed unless the m..r Is sa'lsllud with the linnncial bKcklim of the enter prise.

State ments by President Depew that the business outlook wss Improving and the continued buying of rnilnmil und mis cellaneous mortgages had a good effivt. The engagement of l",0eii gold for shipment to Europe to-niorrow was a surprise, but It had no Influence on the share speculation. The inability of the tariff conference committee to agree was considered unfot lunate, but no attempt was made to iih it against the market. A settlement or the ques tion either one way or the other would meet with prrtty general approval and With the matter shelved Wall street would give more attention to the crops, the poor railway earning and the re organisation of bankrupt corporations, The securities of the new Southern Hallway company continue active on the street at a higher van ire.
