H la -possible that her experience with
love had been, such that she thought
she was doing a good turn to those
whose love-letters she waylaid. Was

more trouble by putting the love let

questions raised by this remarkable
OVCVPATIOXS Of XtsOHOkS.
That the negroes of this country do
something besides eating watermelons,
playing the banjo and conveying chick
ens is strikingly shown by a pamphlet
written hy Mr. Henry Gannett of the
United States geological survey, and
printed by the trustees of the John F.
Slater fund. It gives interesting and en
couraging facts In relation to the
material progress o( our negro popula
tion, For instance, we learn that ne
groes occupied 549,642 of the 4,767,179
farms in this country in 1890. Of the
total number of farms occupied by ne
groes 120,738 were owned by the occu
pants. Of these farms 90.4 per cent,
were without incumbrance. The male
negroes in agriculture in 1S90 numbered
1,329,584, of whom 510,619 were indepen
dent farmers, and the remainder were
presumably farm laborers. The pam
phlet brings 'out the fact that in the
matter of occupation the negro is main
ly engaged in either agriculture or per
sonal service. He has made little pro
gress in manufactures, transportation
or trade; He has made good progress,
however, toward acquiring property in
the form of homes and farms, arid
wherever he has acquired real estate
he has become more valuable as a cit
izen. The outlook for the negroes as
agriculturalists is v very favorable,
though there is little prospect, Mr.
Gannett thinks, that the race will be
come an important factor in manufac
tures, transportation or commerce.
It is interesting to note that while
Mr. Gannett is expressing this opinion
an effort is helng made, "both in North
Carolina and in Alabama, , to employ
negroes in cotton mills. A negro paper
in Raleigh this week publishes a call
for a meeting of the memhers of the
National Protective association, a negro
organization, in Raleigh, at an early
date to form a company to build and
operate exclusively with negro labor a
cotton mill in Raleigh. If the negroes
can raise the necessary capital, the ex
periment Will be tried. The result will
be awaited with much Interest not only
by the mill-owners of the 'South, but
by the northern millmen as well; for,
if it is successfully demonstrated that
negro labor can he profitably employed
in southern cotton mills, it will probably
enable the mills so employing them to
produce cotton goods at a cost even less
Senator Flatt of this State can be de
pended on for sound and sensible views
concerning public matters. An illustra
tion of this fact was seen in the Senate
yesterday, when Senator Call gave no
tice that he would move at an early day
for the discharge of the committee on
foreign relations from further consider-
ation of the resolution for the recogni
tion of the Cubans as belligerents. He
would do this, he said, in order to bring
the Senate to a direct vote on the ques
tion without further delay. Senator
Piatt rose and quietly said that he had
heard much talk as to recognizing the
Cuban insurgents. But he pointed out
that this was a question primarily with
in the jurisdiction of the President.
Moreover, the recognition of the insur
gents was not to be viewed as an act
due them, but as a question affecting
the United Sptates., If such recognition
wag accorded only for its moral effect
and for sympathetic reasons, then it
would fee considered under internation
al law, and justly considered, as an of
fence against the parent country. No
one doubted,' Mr. Piatt said, the feeling
of sympathy of our people towards
those engaged in a struggle for liberty
but in shaping the official course of the
government" there should be no haste.

Women who really do not have any
household cares now pretend a little
domesticity. Such a woman will wear
a cotton gown till noon, even though it
may be In itself the sum of her domes
ticity, but, never mind, wear it she
does. The gown ds made full skirted,
is starched stiff, and sets out full at the
hips unless a too generous plumpmas
makes that inadvisable. The bodice is
simple, too, and there must be a spot
less llchu almost Quakerish In simplici
ty. An adorahte cap like those of the
peasant maids In, Switzerland is added.
These cape come well down about the
ears and hide all the hair. These pre

A needle case and other domestic trink
ets are added to the bunch, and when
she walks these clash against each oth-
er, making a noise, that suggests the
busy housewife. Of course, a speck of
flour or a smudge of black from, the
stove spoils the whole scheme, which is
purely fanciful and uselass.
The real housewife thinks more of
appearances after she has laid a&'.de
her work clothes and donned her best.

Surgeons Improved His Lo'iki by Ampu
tBtlne it Section of Them.
(From tho New York World.)
This i a description of how modern
science "remodeled" a very homely man
in su?h a way that his personal appear
ance was greatly improved. The ears
are r.ot commonly regarded as being
pr eminent in either making or marring
one'is appearance; much more impor
tance being given to the nose, mouth
But ears, however unnoticeabie they
may be when they are of normal size,
stand out in' bold relief and attract at
tention when they are prominent on ac
count of their size or strange shape,
Such was the case with the eans of G.
A. Hookey of Tamaqua, Pa. Nature
was kind! to Mr, Hookey in many re
spects. , She gave him regular features,
as a rule; a good mouth, an almost per
fect aquiline nose and a well shaped
head; but when It came to the matter
of eata nature evidently satisfied a
grudge. But now Mr. Hookey Is re
lieved from all jokes regarding his ears,
a'md he can go wherever he pleases- with
out attracting undue attention,, thanks
to the skill of a New York dermatolo
gist In particular and to facial surgery
It is quite natural for one to think
that an operation which makes such a
decided change in one's appearance,
aside from the nature of the 'case itself,
wouid; 'not only be ' very painful but
would consume considerable time. Such
an Impression would wot be correct,
however, for the operation was net pain
ful in the slightest degree, and it was
performed in about an hour.
When Mr. Hookey seated himself to
the operating chair the surgeon's assist
ant swathed hla neck and shoudlers
with towels. The surgeon then grasped
the ear between his thumb and' finger
and injected a four per cent solution
of cocaine under and around the skim
of the .fleshy portion or posterior lobe.
The cocaine deadened all sensation,
rendering each part utterly insensible
of paluu Then the surgeon made an in
clsl i-n on the lower part of the ear near
the head and another Incisc-n about am
inch and a half further up on the ear.
Next he deftly cut out a crescent shaped
plece of ithe k-ln, the points of the cres
cent being the two incisions, and then
cut away the skin from the cartilage of
the ear. This enabled' him to draw the
edges of the wound together later un,
thus bringing the ear close to- the scalp
ar:d entirely removing the deformity.
During ail this time the patient felt no
pain, and was conversing cheerfully
with the surgeon in much the same
manner as one would who is having a
garment fitted. Another incision was
made on the scalp just 'Opposite the one
made on the ear and of similar shape.
The next step war-: 'not so pleasant. In
order to -make the operation entirely
sucasful In this particular case H was
ncessary to make an 'Incision into the
cartilage of theear, because, unless thus
treated, the cartilage sooner or later
would tend -to draw the ear back to Its
ot igk;ia: position. '..
The cutting finished, the wound wan
thoroughly washed with a carbollzed
solution. Then! cams the sewing, which
required eight stitches; a very fine bent
surgical needle and No. 10 surgical silk
were used'. The threads were then se
curely tied- and the operation was com
plete, ns far as that ear was concerned.
The other ear was then treated In the
same manner. ;
The flamboyant organs had th"u been
trasformed into quiet and unassuming
ears, which ne&tled close to tne neaa
as If for protection Instead of standing
away from -it in' a manner, indicating
aversion:. : -
All tha-f now- remained t- be donuwas
the dressing. Next to the head' was
placed, a piece of &auze, saturated with
an antlsept!'3 solution; then came a
strip -of absorbent cotton,, and then a
two-Sneh' utrlp of; gauze was bound
around the head inorder to keep the ears
In their new p-eltion for a few days-,
until the raV edges had granulated.
Throughout the operation careful at
tention was paid to the antiseptic treat-
men of ithe Instruments, which were
were frequently tfnumeTFed ir. arc anti
septic solution. These Instruments, five
in number, consisted of a small dissect
ing knife, a pair of seizors-, a needle; a
pair oif tweezers and a thimble holder.
The fourth d'ay after 'the operation the
patient called at the institution', and
three stitches were taken from each ear,
and at the end of ten days- all the
stitches had been removed. This -was
done without causing the slightest pain
to the patient. ! v
The specialist who performed the ear
operation recently improved the noee
of are actor wh was connected with a
traveling company. The operation im
proved- the Thespian's appearance to
such an extent that he was made lead
ing man with an increased salary.
KIXG OF mrniniA.
A California millionaire and Ilia Strange
(From the San Francisco Call.
The exclusive story in the Call yes
terday that Ho'llis Hitchcock, the eccen
tric millionaire of California, wai sick
unto death at Dr. Lane's hospital,
eaustd a great deal of talk among the
the tens of thousands who knew him.
Throughout the Sonoma valley . the
name of Hitchcock is good for loads of
gold. He owns thousands upon thou
sands of acres of rich land there, and
the seat of his residence i3 at Bodega,
where as the king of Bodega ho was
master of the finances. But his do
ma hi) extends to a vastly richer region,
and hie lands and possessions otherwise
appear on the tax lista of many coun
ties. In Sonoma he owns in many
banks the icme in Tomales, all of
those in Petaluma, and In one In Santa
Rosa; how many others nobody knows.
When it comen to talking of Monterey,
Fresno and other counties, the old gen
tleman owns rolling acres In them,
reaching over many miles. It ie hard
to tell just what ihe has got. Eve his
mot?t intimate friends scarcely know,
and his real wealth, .'therefore, can only
be guessed at. It Is big, however.
As a czar of Grizzly island, 1m the
Sacramento river, where the land finan
cier a few years- ago secured 3,000 acres
he -is well known to that part of the
country. The $1,000,000 Which he was
at first quoted to be worth is said to be
much too low a figure. If property was
worth as much now as it was four or
five years ago in California he would
be worth probably $5,000,000 or $6,000,000,
As it is his estate should' approach
$2,000,000 or $3,000,000, so ithoss who
know him will aver.
"His land lis worth more thaw $1,000,000
to say nothing about his other prop
erty," said one of his neighbors yester
day. "Besides the land he has $75,000
or $100,000 in' the Donahue railroad and
interest in the Tomales; Petaluma and
Santa Rosa banks. No doubt he has
large areas of land' and other property
aluo that I know nothing about."
The old gentdeman, who is now 7;
years old, has- neither wife nor children
Af-;er he came here from eastern Canada
in 1852, and had made some money, he
returned home and brought out a wife
There was a disagreement after a few
years, however, and the wife went back
and 'has since died... He never had any
children 'by this marriage. Though he
has no immediate heirs, however, he
has a host of nephews, niers and other
relatives in California and Canada. I;
Is said the number will reach thirty or
forty, anyway, and1 those, or at least
some of them, It is presumed, will fall
heir to this great patrimony. The old
man has become, convinced that he can
not, in. all probability, survive the
Bright's disease of the- kidneys with
which he Is afflicted. According to his
nephew, L. V. Hitchcock, ex-dlstrlct
attorney of Tehama, county, came down
at his request tni reference to his will.
The will has since been made, and- the
designation of his milllonis 'Indicated.
Dr. h. C. Lane, at whoite hospital on
Clay amdi Wobster streets the old money
king now Is, said yesterday that the
afflicted man iciould wot possibly get well.
"He may live a day or two," he said,
"and it is possible that he may live
longer, but this kidney disease is fatal."
It Is said that seven or eight relatives
of Hitchcock will, according to the will,
get the fortune. . Thow who know him,
however, antielpato the not unusual
dlssattefactlora among other relatives at
such a time, with a possibility of strug
gles for a -portion of the property.
Hitchcock, who laid the foundation of
-his fortune by driving beef cattle to the
gold mines, has lived an eccentric. life
for many years. He would1 not spend a
dollar unless there was an absolute
need of it. . He acquired to the course
of hiis land accumulations a large house
near Bodega, designated as a castle by
his neighbors, and there for a long time
he lived alone. When he grew sick
finally he was taken to ithe family of his
nephew at Valley Ford, 'not far away,
and they cared for him till he was fin
ally brought to the city for treatment.
Then he wewt to 'Dr. line's -hospital.
Though having an , Income of from
$35,000 to $40,000 a year, he bewailed the
expense, and said the cost was liable to
ruin- him. , Two -small rooms there, with
the auxiliaries, cost $3 a- day each; The
money king said it waisi too much, that
he couldn't stand It. '. ( .,
As there was no fire in the room, and
as one was necessary, the relatives
moved' hinT to two larger and 'better
roams, where he could have sufficient
warmth- and other comforts. The rela
tives had to assure him, however, that
r.ls new rooms did not cost him as
much a;?- the othens, I'm order to pacify
him and make him- satisfied. .
In later years , the money getter has
added materially to his wealth by in
tereE't on loans. In this way, it Is said,
many very valuable ranches have tome
into his possession. The farmers who
gave the mortgages could not ftemi the
tide of big Inr-erei-t andi succumbed. In
this way thousands- on -thousands of
acres were added . to the nucleus of
acres. : -
Switzerland's Fine Militia.
(Professor Shnlor In the North American
Review for December.) '
If the change could be made from the
system of standing armies to that of a
true militia of the Swiss type a long

made. In a military syratem of this r.a-
ture the soldier and the citizen' would

man Would take with them that quality
of the household- which makes the Swiss
soldier an admirable home guard, but
