THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: SATURDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 10, 1896.
HAD BEGUN TO PROSr'tH. A Pathetically Humorous Story Told of a Cumberland Mountain Farmer. A writer in the Detroit Free Press tells a pathetically humorous story of a friend of his, Jack Negly, a Cumber land farmer. The writer had lent Jack a few dollars, with which to buy a pair of steers, and had received from him many visits of apology; for Jack was an honest man, and did not enjoy being in debt. He was a renter, and at least every other season he was occupying a dif ferent farm. By my advice, he had moved the year before into an entirely new field, a dozen miles from his usual haunts, and I had not 6een him for beveral months. When I did Be him, at last, it was by accident as business called me into his neighborhood. As I rode past his place he hailed me from the corn-field and came out to the fence. "Hello," I exclaimed. "Is this your farm?" y "Yes, and I jist come over to tell you, colonel, that I'll be ready to pay part of that claim uv your'n afore long." "You must be doing well?" "I think I'm doing fust-rate, and I'm powerful obleeged to you, colonel, fer neadin' me this way." "I'm always glad to help, if I can." "I knowed that, colonel, and that's why I come away over here so fer f mm borne. Hit's kinder strange to me, but ez long ez I'm doin' ez well ez I am I'm a-goin' to stand hit." "Are you making any money ?" $ Jim's face brightened perceptibly, j "No, I ain't, colonel," he replied, hope fully; "but I'm losin' it slower'n I ever done in my life afore." It struck me as rather odd at first, but upon reflection I concluded that Jim might have reason for his hopefulness. ANOTHER ICE PERIOD. A Predicted Result of Cutting the Isthmus of Panama.. "The best scientific authorities pre dict dire effects from the cutting of a canal through either the Isthmus of Panama or Tehuantepec. The late George E. Marsh said of this that 'a new ice period might be occasioned by the withdarwal of so important a source of warmth from the northern zones,' end Sir John Herschel wrote: 'Were the Isthmus of Panama broken through there is no doubt that the whole climate of our island (Great Eritain) would un dergo a most notable deterioation.' The sum of $9,000,000 has been voted by the legislature of the state of New York for improving the Erie canal sys tem; the nennepin canal has had $1, 200,000 spent on it, and work has stopped until new appropriations can be made. Matt Quay is using his influence for the construction of a ship canal from Pitts burgh to Lake Erie, to cost $16,000,000, and a ship canal from Philadelphia to New York, besides advocating the ex penditure of $50,000,000 in canalizing the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. One of the most stupendous of these engineering works is the Chicago drainage canal, now in progress, which is to cut the 'divide which bars he way between Chicago and the Mississippi river. The distance is only 30 miles between Lake Michigan and the Illinois river, and one can easily see the startling nature of a union of the 'great lakes' and the father of waters.' " HUNG IN MIDAIR. The Perilous Plight of a Soldier in Chi nese Thibet. An amusing story is told of the Eng lish officer who determined to enter Chinese Thibet by stratagen. He man aged to cross the frontier at night, and so escaped the guard. : On the following day, however, while the officer was journeying deeper into Thibet, the Thibetan soldiers overtook him, and informed him that as the country was unsafe because of rob- bers, they would go with him in order to protect him, to which arrangement .the traveler was compelled to agree. ;In a few hours they came to a river, .which was crossed by a rope bridge. The Thibetans passed over first, in or der to show that the bridge was safe, and then the official got into the noose and was pulled along by the Thibetans, Suddenly, however, they ceased pull ing, and left the Englishman hanging in midair above the rushing torrent. In vain the officer shouted to the Thibetans to pull. They merely smoked and nodded their heads. The hours passed, and still the officer hung above the torrent. At last the Thibetans agreed to pull him back if he would leave Tibet immediately. This, of course, he was compelled to do, and took his departure from the forbidden land. Kleptomania. To believe a French writer, there are no fewer than four thousand women caught every year in stealing during their shopping expeditions, a habit eu phoniously styled kleptomania. The number of titled ladies seized with this strange malady while examining the fashions of Paris, he tells us, is incred ible. Among the most recent culprits were a Russian duchess, a French countess, an English duchess and the daughter of a reigning sovereign. As a rule, these distinguished offenders are let off on the payment of a round sum for the relief of the poor; when the shoplifter is known to be rich, the sum extracted rises to as much as ten thousand francs. The police authori ties consent to this sort of condonation. FOR OVER FTFTT YEARS. Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup has been used for children teething.
