Every Occupation Brings Its Own Deformities —The Effects of Long Standing and Kneel ing. of Leaning—Certain Metallic Vapors Color the Hair and Skin—Blowing the Flute or Clarionette Puckers the Lips and Pulfs Out the Cheeks—Harpists and Guitarists Have Calloused Fingers—Pianists a Wonder ful Compass of Digits—Cavalry Officers Have Bow-Legs—Priests Drag Their Legs— Dancers Have a " Devitation of the Internal Metatarsus." Every occupation brings about its own deformities. The principle at the bottom of it all is that we were not created to l>e al ways standing up, nor always sitting down, nor always kuecling, nor always bending over; and that, with the ex ception of climate, we were created to obey the law of diversity as well in the movements of our bodies, day by day, as in our daily nourishment. The best proof of this fact is that, apart from accidents, longevity attaches in the main just to those professions that afford the entire organism the great est amount of exercise—those of the soldier, the phinter, the sculptor, and the actor. Even the person who has no em ployment is subject to his own peculiar deformities. If there exists such a thing as perfect leisure, the proper re sults of that condition are produced, fatty degeneration, anaemia, arrest of growth. Diderot was correct when he wrote: "It is the daily occupations which determine not only the entire size of the figure but also the true proportions of each member and their combinations." Police magistrates are rarely deceived at first sight as to the profession of a workman. Among the professions there are some deformities which affect the health directly, and others which merely alter rhe normal normal atti tude of the body to the prejudice of hygiene and athletics. The first fall within the proper domain of medicine and still await their correct scientific description. Here and there we read of the necrosis of the match manufac turer, or the cataract of the black smith, or the paralysis of the miner, and similar instances. But there still remains to be written an entire treat ise on the subject which would be of the greatest interest and which would indicate the means of guarding against the dangers which beset a nu merous class of workmen wt\o are de voted to a variety of special interests. M. Chevalier has made a number of investigations and concluded that compositors who are always standing are apt to suffer from palsy, fatigue, and, with age and an abuse of alco holic liquors, from varicose veins and j ulcers. The same is true of women who are employed in shops who have to stand for ten and twelve or thirteen hours consecutively. Some of the cleaners who have bad to kneel a long while scrubbing are subject to swelling of the knee and to hycanthrosis, es pecially when they are rheumatic. Occupations which require a bend ing posture comprise those of the clerk, the tailor, the shoemaker, the gardener, the miner, the engraver, the wood sawyer, the laundress, and others. These have all the troubles which come from the engorgement of the viscera, whence arise affections of the digestive organs and the head aches and countless other ills which follow therefrom. The vertebral coL umn tends also to be deformed, as we see frequently in the case of old gar deners as well as aged students. The metallic vapors of mercury t copper, and arsenic are pernicious to workmen exposed to them; those ex posed to the vapors of copper have a marked greenish color of the hair, skin, and mucous membrane. The ef fects of arsenic are most injurious. As for the evil results attending mer cury we may instance the case of the English ship which took on board a cargo of mercury and bad its whole crew attacked with salivation, ulcera tion, and partial paralysis. Among instrumental musicians, flutists and clarionetista may be rec ognized by the position of their lips and the puffing out of their cheeks. The violinists, who bold their violins in place with their chins, hang their heads, and incline them towards one side. Harpists and players on the guitar have callosities of the fingers. Pianists have a tendency to an exag gerated development of the hands, such as Weber, who could stretch two octaves. Grooms and cavalry officers have bow-legs and incline to toe in. Priests, magistrates, and all who wear skirts are predisposed to drag their legs in distinction from soldiers, who raise them. Dancers who have worked hard at pointing have a devitatiou of the internal metatarsus, commonly known as the onion. Painters have the mark of the palette-hole on their left thumbs. "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they May." Both hygiene and esthetics bid us one and all to be careful of an equilibrium of forces. A good ex ample is furnished in Sweden, where evening gymnasium classes have been established for both sexes, not the places of torture which turn out acro bats and clowns but real resorts of amusement where people go as they go to the theater or a similar sport. Those who attend them return to their homes in better condition than if they had been spending the evening hours in a smoky cafe and drinking alcoholic beverages over cards or dom inoes. 110 MILES AN HOUR 1 liter-Ocean. There is now before a committee of the House of Commons in London a bill, which has already passed the House of Lords, providing for a new thing in railroads. The style of railroad contemplated by the bill was exhibited at Brussels in 1897. The cars on it ran eighty three miles an hour under unfavorable conditions. Its essential features are that one rail alone is used to carry the cars, and that the latter are hung from the rail, instead of running over it. The motive power is electricity, and the combination is expected to give speeds practically double the best now attained on the first-class steam railroads of the world. The railroad provided for in the Parliamentary bill is to run between Manchester and Liverpool, a distance of thirty-four miles. The track is to be a single rail, elevated four feet from the ground on A-shaped steel trestles riveted to steel ties set in the ballast. The cars are to be sixty feet long and ten feet wide, and to hold sixty to ninety persons each. They are to be suspended on single-rail trucks, so that the center of gravity will be con siderably below the rail, and hence the cars will be in no danger of leaving the track under any circumstances. Electricity is to drive four 200- horse-power motors in each car. An elaborate system of guard rails, brakes, and signals is to be supplied for safety. The cars are to be cigar shaped, so as to encounter as little re sistance as possible from the air. These care are expected to attain a speed of 110 miles an hour in regular running. The distance between Liver pool and Manchester will be covered in twenty minutes and trains will be run every nineteen minutes. There will be no stops, no twitches, and none of the usual complications, that tend to make travel slow and dangerous. The cost of the road is to be about $14,000,- 000. In the development of the railroad locomotive a point hss come in sight beyond which it is unlikely that the speed of steam railroad trains on a flat roadbed will ever go. Yet with the progress of civilisation the desire for more rapid transportation is ever growing. It goes without saying that the speed limits of steam rail trans portation must soon be exceeded. But to accomplish the task some revo lutionary departures in railroading must be made. Perhaps the new mono-railroad between Liverpool and Manchester will prove the forerunner of this revolution. Onk of the sights of Modoc County, California, is the stone wall, four feet high, which nearly surrounds Jesse D. I Carr's estate of 25,000 aeres. In order to protect his stock, Mr. Carr built the fence at a cost of something like fflO,- 000. "Do you know what the United States Marshal said about it when he | was sent out here to investigate at the ' time they were trying to force me to pull it down during Cleveland's Ad ministration?" ho asked of a friend recently. "Well, be looked it over carefully,and he said to me: 'Carr, I don't know which is the bigger fool— the Government for wanting to pull down that fence, or you for putting it up. 1 That," added Mr. Carr, " was the most sensible thing I ever heard about that fence—even if I did put it up." THE recent drop in price of shingles is the work of the commission men of Sesttle and Tncoma. They have sold a big advance order for the fall trade at a good price and are now figuring to put the price down so tbey can fill this order cheaply. The price is now down to $1.25 per thousand and no mill can make money running at that figure. It has Jtoen suggested that every mill in the country shut down. Two weeks would be long enough to close the mills and by that time the price would be back to where it be longs. Why She Was Sere. George—l see nothing but for U3 to elope.

OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, SECT. <>, 1901. A brand iiew branch of industry in America lias been started in Southern California—that of extensive pigeon I raising. The pigeon ranch at Los An- I gelcs is the only one of its kind in the world. It covers an area of eight | acres, and in the gigantic lofts are over j 15,000 of these birds. The cost of | feeding them amounts to a little over $5 per meal. The ranch was started three years ago with 2,000 birds. Nearly 250 dozen squabs are dis ' posed of per month, except in the fall, which is the moulting season. At that time of the year it is possible to secure only one-fourth of the usual number. Jn Los Angeles about #3 a dozen is the usual market price of squabs. During the season, when they are scarce, they sometimes bring as much as 110 a dozen. When the ranch is well stocked, as it is when there are 15,000 birds Hying about, the extensive family cats one wagon load of screenings, two sacks of wheat and about twelve gallons of boiled meal daily. In additiou to this they are given three barrels of stale bread, soaked in water, during the week. The farm is a picturesque sight, es pecially at feeding time, when the birds swarm the place, pickiug their way daintily over the ground—a mass of white and gray flufiiness. A remarkable fact in connection with this place is that the pigeons never leave the ranch, and it is seldom that one ever gets beyond the large wiro fence that surrounds the yard. In pigeon life the male bird is in clined to be fickle. He has but one mate, yet he does not hesitate to send languishing glances and coo at other lady birds. This is tolerated by his mate, who is always faithful until he gets sick or dies, then she seeks out another partner without delay. When selecting their homes, the male bird takes possession of the coop first, then the female flies excitedly around, making a pretense of finding a better location. As she flies past the various coops occupied by the males each one tries to coax her to take up her abode with him. When she finally selects a.cotnpauion he driverf her out perhaps three or four tjjjies; if she persists in returning, they are mated. The nesting begins when the pig eons are about six months old. Two eggs is a setting, and it generally takes eighteen days for the eggs to hatch. The male bird divides the time on the nest with his mate, going on duty about 9 in the morning, giving her an hour or two to fly around, eat, drink and take her bath. Later in the day he lakes another turn. The female bird seldom goes far from the uest, and is always ready to return at a mo ment's notice, providing she has had her bath. The clear, shallow stream let which rans through the ranch, fur nishes an excellent bathing and drink ing place. At three weeks the squabs are ready for market, and by the time they are fairly out of the way, the mother bird is ready to lay more eggs. 11 1 see that they are going to charge Schley with being drunk the day the Spanish fleet was sunk. If be was, all I've got to say is that the navy clique ought to—" "O, come off! Don't spring that old gag." " Old, nothing! I was just going to say that if Schley was drunk the navy clique ought to get-r" " Say, that the worst chestnut yet.

Why don't you learn |o keep your mouth shut while a fellow's try ing to talk to you?" Irresistible. " I wonder if the men in this car call themselves gentlemen!" exclaimed the indignant little girl standing up in the aisle. "My dear child," spoke the gray haired man in the seat nearest her, " almost any one of us would give his seat to an aged woman, or even a younger one with a baby in her arms, but " " Well, ean't yon see I'm carrying a doll?" sheaaked, with flashing eyes. She got the seat. A PIGEON RANCH N. Y. Mull 4ii<l Express, He Persevered. WONDERFUL PETRIFIED MINE A Plain, Simple and True Story of a Mo.<t Ex traordinary Discovery Made in Arizona. The following story of mining life in Arizona comes from Mr. D. D. McDon ald, a mining man of that rich Terri tory, and is strictly truthful: While out prospecting for copper properties on a grub stake layout last month, Jini l'lccute wandered into the dark recesses of a dismal canon, 40 miles east of Jerome, and pitched camp for the night. The next morning lie went out prospecting, and, while wandering around, suddenly came upon a log cabin. Entering it, lie found two miners seated at a table, seemingly in the act of eating their breakfast. He addressed them, hut received 110 re sponse. Thinking something was wrong, he walked up to tlieni and was horrified to find that they were stone dead, petrified. The tin plates from which they ate, the trying pan, coilee pot and tin cups were also petrified. Judging from appearances, they had been transformed from living beings to the state in which Plecute found them inaptly, for one of the stone images held a fork in his stony grasp. On the end of the fork was a small piece of venison as he had cut it to put in his mouth. The fork and ven ison were turned to stone just as the man had opened his mouth to receive the food. Everything within the cabin was petrified; the flames were turned to stone as they leaped up in the old-fashioned fireplace and stood up red aud brilliant, but cold as ice. A petrified cat lay on the floor, while every article within the cabin was in the same condition. Upon closer in vestigation Plecute discovered the very logs of the cabin were also of stone. Leaving the house, with his heart filled with dismal foreboding, the prosector passed on up an old trail, which looked as though it had not been used for thousands of years, though still dimly visible. He had gone but a short distance when he dis covered signs of ore. There was a huge iron dyke extending up the rug ged mountain side, and where he stood was a break in the dyke. Cop per-stained fragments of rock were scattered about as though thrown there by some one, but there was no sign of tunnel or shaft. Flccute con cluded to sink a shaft where the dyke was broken, so went after his burra and outfit, and soon had his camp pitched. Three weeks of steady labor had been put in on the prospect without striking ore, and Plecute was discour aged and on the point of quitting. Thinking he would put in one or more rounds of shots, he did so, fired them, and made a most startling dis covery; he had shot the bottom from the shaft. Going down on his rope he found there was room to stand on a little shelving ledge that had not been shot away. Holding his candle so it threw a faint light down the dark hole, he discovered a ladder sus pended down the seemingly bottom less hole. As the ladder was securely fastened, he cautiously descended it. When he had gone down about 100 feet he came to a drift leadiug to the north. Following that a short dis tance he came suddenly upon three miners in the breast of the drift. Al though he heard no sound, they seemed to be intently engaged in drill ing. One sat holding the drill, while the other two were holding their ham mers suspended in the air. He ad dressed them but received no response. Then the horrible truth burst upon him j they were also petrified. Close inspection proved that the men were in the same condition as the occu pants of the cabin. Plecute examined the surroundings, and discovered that the hammers and drills were all turned to stone. A watch in one of the miner's pockets was also petrified. The time, as shown by the watch, was 7:15, whether morning or evening he of course could not tell. A tick was petrified in the watch, while the hands were iu the same condition. Every line and fea ture of the watch was as natural as when it was a living and moving thing. Thoroughly frightened at the spec tacle, Plecute hurriedly left the un canny place, and as he climbed the ladder he heard a petrified bird on a petrified limb of a petrified tree, sing ing a petrified song. The way Jim Plecute accounts for the shaft having been closed with stone and seemingly in its natural condition is that the at mosphere .in the shaft was petrified down to a depth of 20 feet, where he struck the shaft. Monuments have already been erected and the wonder ful mine located by Mr. Plecute, who thinks he will make a fortune out of his find. WINTERS, who robbed the Selby smelter, was something of a frost. WAS NOT DISCLOSED. SECRET PROCESS OF HANDLING ORES LOST BY DEATH. Col. Larkin L. Ford's Discovery of the Process For Treating Ores of Smelting Grade Without the Expense of That Method, the Result of Twelve Years of Experiment and Study Dies With Him—A Few Inexpensive Chemicals Extracted Gold From Ore of Any Richness — The Carnigie People Interested—Had a Chemist Constantly at His Bedside, But He Was Unable to Speak the Words Worth Mil lions to the World. Death has sealed forever the lips of Colonel Larkin L. Ford, and though a chemist from the great Carnegie steel plant hung over his bedside, ready to pay him millions for his secret pro cess of handling ores, he died without revealing a word, says the Denver Pott. From the time he was stricken with apoplexy until the end came, there was not a moment when he was able to speak coherently, and his secret, worth untold millions, died with him. Colonel Ford had worked for 12 years on a process of treating ores of a smelting grade without the expense of smelting it. He achieved a start ling success, and was able, by the use of a few inexpensive chemicals, to ex tract the gold from from oie of any richness without smelting it. He guarded the process with jealous care, conducting all his experiments in his own room, aud making a confident of nobody. When lie was sure he had mastered the process he wrote to some large Eastern firms, and as a result the Carnegie people became interested. A month ago they sent one of their ex pert chemists here, and he has gone as far as Colonel Ford would allow him into the process. The old man would not allow the method of treat ment to be known, but he permitted the experts to witness the results. Mill runs of a hundred pounds of rich ore would be taken into the Colonel's room, and, with his secret process, he would extract the gold as perfectly as a smeller could do it. Without know ing how it was done, the expert was satisfied, and quickly agreed to make a contract with the inventor. By its terms Colonel Ford was to receive a round sum down and a royalty from each and every mill that was estab lished. It has been reckoned that within a few years his income would have been $1,000,000 a year. But just on the eve of the day when he was to have made his secret known his brain gave way under the awful strain to which it had been subjected for twelve years. He had a stroke of apoplexy and from the time when he was stricken until his death there was never a moment when he could com municate his secret to those who would have gladly paid millions for it. Colonel Ford was at one time one of th* wealthy men of Colorado. He was a miner in the early days of Leadville, and made much money out of the discovery of gold in California gulch. .Later he discovered the London mine at the head of Mosquito range, and sold it for $400,000. He kept on ac cumulating by shrewd mining deals, and was reputed to be worth consider ably more than a million at one time. He lost it all, however, and the last twelve years of his life were devoted to the discovery which brought bis death in its crowning hour. ENVIED THE OCTOPUS. Because of the Manifold Capabilities in the Way of Arms. A young couple from Nurthleacb, on a visit to Barnum & Bailey's, had succumbed to fatigue, and were seated on a bale of hay in an obscure corner of the menagerie tent. " What do you reckon is the most strange thing we saw?" said the girl. " It's hard ter say, but I know what I'd like ter be now." "The flying trapeze man?" she ventured. " No, not him." " Mebbe the ringmaster." " Nor him. You recollect the octo pus in the glass tank? Well, I'd like to be he." " Why?" " 'COB he'd" nigh on a hundred arms, an' I'd like ter use 'em all a-huggin' you a hundred times at oncest." " Jerry, that's a very wrong wish." " 'Tain't neither." " Oh, yes,'tis! It's sinful to waste time wishing for the impossible 'stead o' makin' the best of such opportunities ez yer happen ter have." And Jerry rose to the occasion, and put all his energy into the gentle art of octopusing. CUMBERLAND county, Maine, has a Sheriff named Pearson, who is a clergy man. He holds gospel meetings on barges, aud some of his enemies are charging him with introducing poli tics into his prayers. The other day he said: "When you go to your room for prayer, ask God to help poor Pear son, and then stand by him with your ballot." METAL AND MINERAL OUTPUT. In its issue of June 28, the New j York Engineering and Mining Jour nal publishes the full estimates of metal and mineral output for the United States ii> I'JOO. The table shows that the total value at the place of production of the output was sl,- 305,008,581? as compared with $1,218,- 214,163 in 1809, a gain of $147,304,370 for the year. Of these vast sums, which are with out precedent in the history of the mineral industry, ores and minerals contributed $072,000,410 in 1000 and $587,208,708 in 1890; metals, $524,- 432,533 in 1900 and $406,057,320 in 1800; secondary products, $72,720,005 in 1900 and SO-1,410,070 iu 1800, while the value of metals smelted or refined from foreign material was $06,364,039 in 1000 and $70,471,540 in 1800. The chief item of our great mineral production, in quantity, value , and economic importance, was coal, with the production iu 1000 of $208,315,431 short tons, an increase of 16,210,044 tons, or 6 per cent, over 1809. Pig iron was second in order in val ues, as well as in economic importance- The total in 1900 was 13,533,265 long tons, with an approximate value of $273,110,322. It is these two products—coal and iron—which we produce more abund antly and more cheaply than any other country in the world, that are giving the United States the economic leadership iu the world, and will en able the nation to hold that place. In pointof value copper comes third on the list, its production last year be ing 000,832,505 pounds, with a value of $07,755,449. The increase over 1899 was comparatively small. Gold holds only tlie fifth place, with a total value of $78,159,674, less than One-fourth of the value of coal, or one third that of pig-iron. It was nearly approached in value by petroleum, with a total of $74,246,582; and was exceeded by the clay products, with a total of $78,704,768. Few people would suppose that the varied clay products—brick, tile, pipe and the like—exceeded in their total values that of our large output of gold, but such is the fact. The production of silver had a market value of only $36,756,900. Building stone was rated at $41,400,- 500 last year. »o» MATTERS OF FACT.

Five hundred men may meet openly and endeavor to persuade their fellows to stand by the just demands of organized labor, and that is called intimidation and punished by prison seutences. It has been discovered that after loss than twelve years of existence the steel armored cruiser Columbia is worthless because of inattention and disuse. For two years it has been de serted save for a $2 a day watchman, and the engines are rusted until they refuse to work and are useless. One half the effort expended in trying to make Sampson the hero of the Span ish-American war, would have kept this cruiser in fighting trim. AN Attempt was made to burglarize the Montesano National Bank, in open day-light, while the cashier was at dinner, last Friday.

It is a singular thing that in the popular view of disease the iuterde iiendence of the several organs of the body is lost sight of. The heart, for example, is diseased and it is treated as if it were entirely separated from, and independent of, every other organ. The fallacy of this opinion is shown by the cures of heart "trouble," liver "trouble," kidney "trouble" and other so-called "troubles," effected by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov ery. Primarily the "Discovery" is a medicine for the cure of diseases of the stomach and blcod. But it cures dis eases of organs seemingly remote from the stomach, because these diseases have their origin in a diseased condition of the stomach and its associated organs of digestion and nutrition. "I doctored with three different doctors for weak heart, but '.hey did me no (rood." writes Mrs. Julia A. Wilcox, of Cygnet, Wood Co.. Ohio, Bqt 52. "I was so tired and discouraged if I had had my choice to live or die I would have pre ferred to die. My husband heard of ' Golden Medical Discovery' and he bought a bottle.
