SUBSCRIBE FOR THE “TIMES.'’ A Skocked Philanthropist. The little boy was crying, and his tears touched the heart of the char itably inclined lady. He was so small and seemed to be in such dis tress. “Don’t cry, little boy,” she said, soothingly. “Dry your eyes and tell me what the trouble is. Did some of tbe big boys hurt you?” “No’m,” replied the waif, still sob bing. “Are you sick or hungry?” she persisted. “No’m.” “Did your father beat you for something?” “No’m, but he will.” “Oh, that’s the trouble, is it?” “Yes’m.” “Well, it’s a shame,” she exclaim ed, angrily. “Why will he beat you ?” “ ’Cause I lost 10 cents.” “Did he send you to buy some thing with it?” “Yes’m.” “And you lost it on the way?” “Yes’m.” “Oh, well, I guess we can fix that,” she said, in her kindly way, as she took a dime from her purse and handed it to the boy. “Now he won’t beat you, will he?” “No’m.” “What did he send you to buy with it?” “Beer.” “Beer!” The good old lady gasp ed at the thought. “Yes’m.” “And how did you lose it?” “Matchin’ pennies.” Before Bhe had snfficiently recov ered to demand the return of the dime the boy was gone.—Chicago “Evening Post." The Idaho Horae Queen. Miss Kate C. Wilkins, who en joys renown throughout the West as the Idaho horse queen, is de scribed as an attractive young wo man, not more masculine in appear ance than it is now quite correct for a girl to be. She journeyed from her home to St. Louis recently to sell 3,000 horses, and the dealers who met her found her a tall, state ly young person, with blue eyes, blonde curls, a tailor made gown that bore the stamp of London, and a bonnet that was plainly the pro duct of Paris. Her father was a cattle dealer, and Miss Wilkins used to accompany him when he went to sell his horses. Soon she learned to drive a better bargain than he. Since his death she has managed the ranch, which em braces thousands of acres along the Snake river; has superintended the farming on several hundred acres, and has attended to all de tails of buying, selling and raising the horses. At the same time she has the accomplishments of a well educated girl, and is not yet thirty years old. 6ot His Chance. In a]l banks there is usually an accumulation of counterfeit coins, and with them a Cincinnati banker turned a unique trick an a sharper a few days since. A stranger rush ed into the bank, saying: “Change this five-dollar bill quick. I want to catch the train.” The banker looked at the bill a moment, hesi tated, then walked back and re turned, handed the sharper five counterfeit dollars. The sharper looked at them a moment, a sickly smile played over his face, he wink ed, and hurried out of the bank. Jt is needless to say the bill was counterfeit. Mining Anaeiaent Work. The Mining and Scientific Press gives the following concerning min ing assessment work. The work is estimated by the day’s work at the ruling local rate. No decision permits trail or road work to apply on the required amount of annual work on im provement. Work must be on the claim itself, or, if on other ground, with direct relation to it. No al lowance is made for time or expense going to or returning from the claim. In this matter of assess ment work, the attention of holders of unpatented mining claims in this State is direoted to an act passed by the California Legisla ture March 31, 1891, which pre scribes that when the required amount of annual labor or improve ments is put on an unpatented mining claim, the owner shall with in thirty days file with the county recorder an affidavit describing the labor performed, the improvement made and its value. The act pro vides that failure to do so render^ the mine open to relocation. The Supreme Court of Utah holds that a locator of a quartz claim, who has allowed his location to lapse and become subject to re location, under the statutes provid ing for the relocation of claims on which the required annual work has not been done, has the right to make a new location, covering the same ground. The Supreme Court of the State of Nevada denies that one partner cannot claim an interest in a claim located by another under an oral agreement that they should be part ners in all such locations, when no trust arises because partnership capital was employed in locating the claim. Kevence Is Hwert. It takes a bright woman to rebuke another woman’s rudeness, a general statement well borne out by a story from the Atlanta Constitution. A lady entered a railway train and took a seat in front of a newly married couple. She was hardly seated before they commenced mak ing remarks about her. Her last year’s bonnet and cloak were fully criticised, with more or less giggling on the bride’s part, and there is no telling what might have come next if the lady had not put a sudden stop to the conversa tion by a bit of strategy. She turned her head, noticed that the bride was considerably older than the groom, and in the smooth est tones said: “Madam, will you please have your son close the window behind you?” The “son” closed his mouth and the bride no longer giggled. A (ttory of Uloote Carlo. In the good old days of M. Blanc it was the custom, so the story goes, directly a suicide was found to stuff his pockets full of bank notes. This was done to prove that his losses at play were not the cause of his hur ried departure from the shores of time. The last person who received this generous treatment was, I be lieve, an American. He was found lying in one of the quiet alleys of the beautiful grounds, with an empty bottle labeled “Poison” by his side. The secret agents of the bold Blanc instantly stuffed his pockets full of gold and notes, pre paratory to giving information to to the police. No sooner had they filled him as full of lucre as he could hold than the suicide leaped to his feet, raised his hat, and ex claimed: “Thank you very much!” and went off to enjoy himself with his newly acquired wealth.—G. R. Sims in “Dagonet’s Daunnerin’s” Cotton from Fir Wood Artificial cotton, says a Paris journal, resembles the natural pro duct in this, that both are formed of cellulose, nearly pore; and, as nature has prepared cotton by means of the elements of the air and soil forming the cellulose in fine fibers by means of secret forces, and offering it in the state of wood to be transformed mto what is required of it, so the chemist in his laboretory takes the natural cellulose of the tree and separates it from the sub stances with which it is combined, transforming it into threads by means of suitable appliances. For this purpose fir wood is employed, this being submitted to a series of mechanical and chemical operations and the threads are drawn out, afterward being rolled on bobbins; the material when manufactured resembles ordinary cotton, though haying a slight defect, which can be easily corrected—that is, it is a little less solid than natural cotton. On the other hand, however, the new substance is worked and woven easily, it can be dyed as readily as natural cotton, and when passed through a weak solution of tannin and certain other reagents, it will take every shade of artificial colors, and can be dressed and printed on just as are the tissues of natural cotton. She Disgraced Her Bloomers. “Come, be brave now! Don’t dis grace your bloomers!” It was the tall, masculine woman who spoke. Her younger compan ion held her protector’s arm ner vously and shook visibly. “Oh, but,” she said, “it is so dreadful, and it is coming this way.” Just then the monster came with a rush and a swish and a hypnotic glitter of its bead like little eyes. It dodged right between the feet of the new woman and vanished through I a little hole in the wall, while the cat which had arroused it sprang after, but brought up with a thump against the wall, unable to go fur ther. There were two shrieks, a wild clutching of bloomers, a leap toward the table and then a fall. The younger woman had fainted. Nature had again asserted herself. The new woman was unmanned. Her Choice. A woman who has traveled large ly in Japan mentioned in the course of a lecture the fact that the Japan ese language does not contain an impolite word; hence there is no swearing in that happy land. She also stated that osculation was an unknown pleasure. As the audi ence dispersed, commenting favor ably upon different points, an old woman remarked in a voice loud enough to be heard by all, “Well, for my part, I prefer a country where they kiss and cuss!”—Atlan ta Constitution. Why do manufacturers in Europe and America rejoice because China and Japan are able to manufacture for themselves, and will soon be able to supply the market of Eu rope and America, by reason of the advantage they have of abundant silver money, ‘which prevents fall ing prices? Can it be possible that they intend to degrade the laboring classes of the Western World, below the level of Asiatic coolies? If it be true, as English writers contend that the difference of exchange is a tariff in favor of the Orient of about one hundred per cent, how do the manufacturers of this country ex pect to continue operations against Asiatic competition? ■Mklea’a Antes Main.
