THE ST. JOHNSBURY CALEDONIAN, MARCH 1, 1899.
3 Tyson of Australia. (Written for the Caledonian.) What vai Tyson's "little game?" Making money? Not a bit 1 Though the mighty million! came, Fust, and faster, flame on flame, At when woodland fires are lit, Till the money made his name, Tyson did not care for It I "I have fought, and won I" he said. "Fought the desert I" How ? you ask. Cheaply-clad and frugal-fed. And alone in board and bed, Tyson's "fun" was In his task ! Breeding cattle, myriad-head, Is that all beneath the mask? Silent Tyson ere he died Made confession of his creed. Where his cattle multiplied Men at ease can now abide! This the motive of his deed : When he "fought the desert" wide, 'Twas that men might scatter seed ! There was even more of gold In his heart than In his hand ! Shrewd was Tyson, swift and bold, Ilut himself he never sold While he bartered through the land. Selfish seemed he, stern and cold, But men seldom understand I Yet at last are men appraised At their measure, large or small, Tyson came, and Tyson raised "Fences" where his cattle grazed j Dug him wells and put in thrall Sterile acres, and. amazed, Grasses grew at Tyson's call ! Plenty laughed when Tyson smiled ; Famine crouched at Tyson's feet, Strange magician, mute and mild; Sickness, haggard, gaunt and wild, Horn from luck of bread and meat, Held aloot from man and child; And the grazing grass was sweet 1 This was Tyson's "little game!" And he played it to the end. Fought his fight, and loved the same ; Garnered millions to reclaim Barren furrows, not to spend On the gilded gauds of shame; Fought, and died the people's friend! None will grieve, and few will muse O'er the lonely toller's grave. Men the "roads" he buht will use, For the gifts we ne'er refuse, But forget the hand which gave! What is life ? The chance to choose Work whose doing leaves us brave ! linch may fight, and each may win, With his scope and in his place: Fight the sullen glebes of sin, Beauty plant where want has been, And, renouncing, serve his race. And "the desert" fight within. Till God greets him face to face! G. W. Patterson. East St. Johnsbury, Vt. The nystlc Figures 1899. If we odd together the figures contain ed in 1899 we find they make 27, and these added give us 9. Subtract the first two figures, 18, from 99, and we have 81, which xdded make 9, and the letters composing the word eighty-one are nine. Add the first two figures, 18 to 99, and we have 117; these figures, when added, again give us 9, says the Detroit Free Press. If we add all the principal num bers thus far mentioned, viz. : 1899, 18, SI, 117 and 27, the sum is 2142, and these figures added give us 9. If we sub tract 27 from 117 we have 90, which divided bv 10 again gives us 9. By sub tracting 117 from 1899 the remainder is 1782; these figures, when added, give us 18, and these two, when added, give us 9. If we add 90 and 1782, principal numbers, not included in first addition, to 2142, obtained above, we have 4014, and these figures, when added, again produce 9. Now if we add the figures 1899 to the last sum we have 5913, and these added produce 18, which again being added the result is 9, The combinations obtained above are very remarkable, but carrying them still farther, with strancer results, we find that by adding 1899 to sums thus far obtained, viz., 4014 and 5913, the sum is 11,820, and by adding these figures we have 18, which added produce 9. Further, if we add the first three figures of the above sum to the last two, viz., 118 to 26. we have 144, and these figures added give us 9. ' We have now tried the results of addi tion and of subtraction on these mystic figures, and will now see what multipli cation will do. If we multiply 18 by 99 the product is 1782; these figures when adcltd give us 18, and cnrelully adding the numerals used in this multiplication we will find the addition to be G3, and by adding these we have 9. Now we will multiply the first three figures of the year by the last, viz., 189 by 9, we find 1701, and by adding these figures we have 9, or it we odd the numerals used in this calculation we find they amount to 36, and these added again produce 9. We will multiply the two products, ob tained above, viz., 1782 by 1701, and we have 3,031,182; these figures added produce 18 and these added give us 9. Innumerable changes could be rung on these mystic figures, but the most re markable port is that the letters com posing the words eighteen ninety-nine are 18, and these two, when added, pro duce the inevitable 9. The Emperor of Austria. He has no heir of his loins, for his only son, a man of striking promise, died in 1889, as is believed, by his own hand. He has no wife, for his empress, in early life one of the most beautiful of women, alter wandering lor years over Europe in a restless effort to shake off the melan choly Droduced bv her son's death, was murdered on Sept. 10 by an assassin of anarchist opinions. The emperor, there fore, broods in melancholy retirement, listening always, one can imagine, to the sounds of another great storm now roll ing up against the fortunes of his race. The ultimate danger of the house of Hapsburg and perhaps the ultimate se cret of its strength, the hatred of race which its subjects bear to one another, has broken out afresh, and we have yet to see whether the emperor can again quiet the rapidly rising waves. If his life is to be thoroughly consistent, he should on some great day be once more beaten to the ground, possibly by a revolt of his German subjects, should then achieve some impossible success, possibly the throne of Constantinople, and thence forward should glide on to the grave, a mighty monarch ot whom instory win say that his failures and his successes re main equally inexplicable. To him, alone among all the sovereigns we can recall, the stranue destiny has been given thiit he should never succeed, yet never suffer from failure, that ashes should al ways be presented to Ins lips ana rnai they should nourish him belter than bread.

Editor Caledonian: It may not be generally known or un derstood that the report of the several town officers covers only from ten to eleven months of a year's business or expenses of the town, as it was necessary to comply with a vote made last year to get the report out at, or before, the caucus, while before tbey were got out for distribution at the March meeting. Thus thisyear, areport of only 11 months, and in case of the road commissioner, only 10 months expense is given. Norisit considering comparisons of the different department's expense, or the total foot ings, as shown by the treasurer's re port of a 10 or 11 months compared with any of the previous reports that cover a 12 months a fairway of com parison. Are not the town's several de partments growing apace in magnificent proportions, as regards the cost of sup port of each and all, without exception? A few instances from the report cited may prove eye-openers to some voters and taxpayers, besides may tend to substantiate above statement. For in stance, the town officers and expenses footed $2144.83, to which should be in cluded the self-constituted fourth lister's compensation and expenses paid out, which were some $276. This expense was classed in the selectmen's general orders, but which would make $2421 town officers' salaries and expense. The cost of the town of making up its list the last year was $981.85 or approxi mately. The cost of the schools in excess of the 40 cents on a dollar of the whole town grand list, and all the other school fund resources, was $1371.42. The treasurer's report foots up a grand total of sixty-one thousand two hundred fifty one and and 5-100 dollars. One may well wonder how such an amountorsum could be made way with in a year of 11 months (for solution refer to report), in view that besides that 90 cents on a dol lar of the grand list of the village was expended on top of the said $61,000, or a nice final footing of near a cool one hundred thousand dollars of sum total for town and village of St Johnsbury for less than a year's time. Is it to be wondered at by the average mind, voter and taxpayer that the query often arises, "Where am I at?" or where shall we or the next generation of tax payers come to ? Even the reported oc casional pedestrian that is said to be extant in this town and village streets, who is said not to be in more doubt or uncertainty of his location and equi librium than are many of the business men, voters and taxpayers are of the certainty and fear of the present and future prospects of taxation. The treas urer's report shows that on Feb. 5th, '98, a year ago, the town had $11,443 84 cash resources on hand, while Jan. 18, 1899, they have but $2412.98 cash re sources, a little over two thousand dol lars cash on hand with a twenty thou sand dollar new schoolhouse to be pro vided for. But then, the present genera tion need never fear having to pay for that, for don't they tell us the town is to be bonded for that amount, and the interest on that annually is all the pres ent survivors will have to foot, which would be, at 5 per cent a thousand dol lars yearly on top of what we already have to meet. If anyone doubts but what the summaries of the different re ports given in the present report ought not to be increased a twehth approxi mately, all one has to do is to refer to the pre6eut report, or ones before and note the arrearages of town officers' ser vices and other expenses that are brought forward to cover the lapse between them and their successors. In view of all these things is it to be considered at all strange that a conserv ative, economical, hard-earned dollar for dollar class should demand the value of that dollar and intend to get its full face value before it is expended ? We repeat, is it strange that such a ;dass should arise and place a "Young Men's Temperance and Eco nomic" ticket in the field? This they supposed to be properly made out and certified before a notary for the voters' consideration at the forthcoming annual March town meeting, and not till the publication of the Caledonian was it known that the certificate of nominees was decided invalid by a mere techni cality ot its being sworn to. Presumably it would not have Deen maae Known out what it was valid till its absence from the officitil ballot at the March meeting if it had not perchance appeared in the above mentioned paper. In regard to this subject 1 would cite section yd, Ke vised Statutes of Vermout,1894: Sec. 93. "Certificate of nomination which are in appearance and conformity with law shall be valid unless objection thereto is made in writing at least ten days before the day of election. Ifbuch obiection is made, notice ihereof shall forthwith be mailed to all candidates who may be affected thereby, addressed to them at their respective places of resi dence as given in these certificates of nomination. The officer with whom the original certificate was filed shall in the first instance pass upon the validity of such objection and his decision shall be final, unless an order is made by a judge orcourt of competent jurisdiction upon notice duly given pointing out the detect in certificate of nomination." So in this instance it appears that the one with whom the certificate was filed gave his decision that it was not in ap parent conformity to the law, and thus void, while to all intents and purposes it was. So be it. Let it bide. The writer scarcely expects any thanks for his trouble for thus endeavoring to state a lew facts, or in thus publicly having the courage to state his honest con vici ions.

The Liverpool steamship companies doing business with Constantinople have combined to cut freight rates, in order to destroy the trade of the direct line just put into service between New York and Constantinople. The meat inspection bill, passed by the German-Bundesrath on Feb. 16, provides for an expert inspection on cattle and hogs and sheep, goats and horses, ex cepting what are killed for domestic consumption. Austria has developed a new scheme for aiding the industrial development of the empire. It has arranged for the establishment of an inventors' bank under royal patronage and government supervision. The bank will be conducted nominally by a company, and shares will be sold to those who wish to assist the movement by lending financial support, but it will be essentially a governmental project and the agents of the emperor will be in charge. 1 he capital stock has been placed at 250,000 florins originally, an equivalent of $100,000, and this may be increased to 1,000,000 florins, or $400,000, upon ratification of the plan by the government and stockholders. Holland is about to begin the great work of draining the Zuyder Zee, a pro cess that will take 33 years and cost $48,000,000, but which will add 787 square miles of fertile land worth $600, 000,000 to the national area. Though the Germans have claimed superior rights in Samoa on account of the large share of its business in their bands, the statistics of commerce do not bear tbem out. In 1896, for example, there were entered at the port of Apia 39 British vessels of 42,364 tons; 22 American vessels of 35,357 tons, and only 12 German vessels of 2215 tons. America was the first to make a treaty with the Saraoan government in 1878, Germany followed in 1879, and Great Britain six months later. Samoa is 4160 miles from the United States, 2240 from Hawaii and 13,000 from Germany. Henry Jones died in England on the 16th ult.

The latest reports from India regard ing the plague show that the area affect ed continues to extend, and that the measures taken to check its progress are only partially effective. Meanwhile the mortality from phthisis increases, more particularly in the districts where the plague was worst, the registered deaths in some districts from phthisis alone run ning to over 16 and 17 per 1000 of the population. The Human Side of Toys. No one can go through a toy shop at Christmas tide without feeling that the scientific spirit of the age may perhaps have touched this juvenile world, as it has that of poetry, with its breath. The doll, of course, is almost as old as human ity. It is found buried in the graves of Roman and Aztec children. The Pom peiian boys trundled hoops, and the children of the French Francis I. bad wooden horses. Knights and ladies are also immortal in the shape ot dolls, and theworld is notyet to wise for harlequins "The Japanese doll is still young," pays Dr. Munthe, "but has a brilliant future before her." The demand for kings, he tells us, has considerably decreased, and jumping-jaeks leap from their boxes with less wild energy than formerly, inspiring less (ear. Scientific toys are displacing them. Creatures with the semblance of animated lite have come into the world ol childhood. Artificial toads and turtles crawl along the sidewalk, and tov butter flies hover in the air of the ball-room, and are caught by enamoured youths to determine partnerships for the german In respect to dolls, the coustant rivalry between France and Germany has only resulted in a compromise between the two nations in their creation. The German doll beauties surpass the French in cheapness and in homely kind nessot look; but Germany cannot pro duce a tasteful doll toilette, and German dolls of fashion import their dresses from Paris as do their owners. In fact, it is rumored that they buy also the heads which accompany them from the porce lain factories ol Montreux and St. Maurice. For many years Germany has been advancing every Christmas on Paris in the form of hordes of wooden oxen and farming implements, while squadrons of spike helmcted Prussian tin soldiers with bageage-wagons and Krupp artillery have steadily marched to invade the toy-shops ot rrance. A remarkable note of defiance has, how ever, been struck at last by an ingenious workman of Belleville, who now places in the field 5,000,000 soldiers a year, all made out of old sardine boxes collected from the dust heap, the warriors, it seems, are cut out of the bottom of the box; the lids and sides furnish guns and wheels. Out of materials which cost nothing beyond the labors of a dust man, a new and conquering French army has been created. Harper s Bazar. The President's Double. William H. Murphy, a Chicago detec tive, looks so much like President Mc- Kuilev that thousands of persons have mistaken him lor the chief executive of the nation. During the president's visit to Chicago at the time of the peace jubilee Detective Murphy was one ot the sound of seven men detailed from police headquarters to look after the safety of the city's distinguished guest. Murphy tells of his experience as fol lows: "For nearly a week I and my six companions were touching elbows with the president ol the United Mates from early morning until late at night. We were his personal guards. Our orders were to watch all the people who ap proached the president and to see that no harm came to Mr. McKinley. This we did carefully, tirelessly, without losing sight of a single suspicious character and noting every stranger who seemed too anxious to get near to the man at the head of the government. "My selection was due, I have heard it said, because of what my superiors fancied was a strong facial resemblance in me to the president. At any rate at one time when the president rode in a closed carriage I whs ordered into the barouche with the chief of police and Mr. McKinlcy's charge d'affaires and com manded to takeoff my shining silk tile whenever the crowds on the street cheered. This worked like a charm, and the crowd howled itself hoarse at my scattered hairs and fine Roman nose with all the zeal of patriots, little think ing that the distinguished looking man they greeted was only a policeman, who in his work of protecting the nation's chief had been ordered to pose for a brief half hour as that chief himself." The Gridiron Club and Its Dinners. The Gridiron Club of Washington, D. C, is the product of a long process of de velopment. Fourteen years ago a group of the leadingnewspapercorrespondents, meeting one evening socially, agreed that it would be a good thing to establish a club which should cultivate a friendly re lation between the members of their craft and help maintain a high standard of professional responsibility, without yielding to the influences which have wrecked so many of the so-called press clubs in Washington and other cities. Its convivial activities were to be con fined to a dinner once a month during the busy season, and occasional excur sions in the spring ani summer, the membership was to be limited to forty. At a later stage the forty full members attached to their organization ten lim ited members, residents of Washington not connected with the press, but se lected for their accomplishments in vari ous lines tributary to the general qualifi cation of good fellowship. The dinner illustrated by the artist ol Harper's Weekly had several of these features. The election of Chauncey M. Depew as senator was a subject of es pecial interest, since Mr. Depew had been present at least once every year at a dinner. He bad enioyed so heartily the fun poked at other victims that the club thought this a good opportunity lor let ting bim see how it felt. So it went through the form of administering the oath of office to a huge "property" vol ume of Depew's Jokes, on the pretext that Depew's jokes were really all there was to Depew. Then they called upon Mr. Depew for a few remarks ; but, before be could respond, a huge phonograph, wmcn naa Deen conceaiea in one corner of the room, began to shoot forth some of his most familiar anecdotes, to which he was permitted to supply only the ges tures. When Mr. Depew was finally al lowed, at a late hour, to speak in his own person, he made one of his cleverest addresses, and assured bis permanent re tention on the club's invitation list. Another amusing feature was a mock ratification of the treaty of Paris. The club resolved itself into the senate in ex ecutive session its president, General II. V. Boynton, impersonating the vice president of tbe United States, and other members representing senators promi nently identified with the expansion and anti- expansion sides of the treaty con troversy. An emissary of the Filipinos, who was discovered in the gallery, hav ing on his person a card of admission signed by the senator from Spain, was ignominiously hustled out by a captain of the Capitol police. Then, after some debate, tbe vote was taken, the presiding officer announcing that, as the roll was called, "all patriots in favor of the treaty" should respond "Aye" and "all enemies of their country who disapprove of the treaty" should respond "Aye" also. By this ingenious means a unani mous vote for ratification was obtained. On announcing the result, tbe chair took occasion to remind the senators afresh of their solemn oath, so olten violated, that the proceedings of an executive ses sion should be kept absolutely secret. Before tbe words were fairly out of his mouth the doors at eitber end of the din-ing-hall flew open and newsboys rushed in, crying "extras" containing the full account of the executive session, includ ing the vote, i The extras were the real article, special editions of the Washing ton Star and Post having been printed expressly tor tbe occasion. Still another satire furnished a fabric for tbe initiation of a new member into the club. He appeared as an applicant for admission under the name of tbe recently elected polygamist representa tive from Utah, and leading behind him at the ends ot long ribbons, four wives Since the cultivation of the moral vir tues and good citizenship are among the aims of the club, it was decided that he should not be admitted till be had purged himself of the offence of plural marriage. To this end the services of a Chicago lawyer were called in, who advertised to "procure divorces while you wait," and who relieved the novitiate of his wives by a process peculiarly his own. Then, as the forlorn women wept so bitterly at being left alone in the world, it was decided to console them by marrying them off again, but to separate husbands, one apiece. The ex-wives drew lots for their new lords, and were duly handed over, one to a famous senator, another to u great political camgaigner, a third to a leading diplomatist, and a fourth to a member of the cabinet. Harper's Weekly. To Make a Birthday-Book. An interesting pursuit, and one that affords real pleasure and diversion to the individual, is the intelligent and system atic collecting of some particular line of curios or articles of virtu, varying in character and kind in accordance with the personal taste of the collector. What ever it may be that centers the attention and effort of the person interested, it matters very little; nearly all art objects have some beauty and intrinsic value, and are appreciated more or less by the onlooker. But the real virtue of gather ing them is the enjoyment it affords the collector, and the educational and intel lectual awakening it is to study the his tory and merits of almost any variety of handiwork. The amassing of photographs and autographs of lamous personages is a favorite practice of many collectors, and the most interesting specimen ot the au Tonight If your liver is out of order, causing Biliousness, Sick Headache, Heart burn, or Constipation, take a dose of Hood's Pills On retiring, and tomorrow your di gestive organs will be regulated and you will be bright, active and ready for any kind of work.

History of Handkerchiefs. Until the reign of the Empress Jose phine a handkerchief was thought in France so shocking an object that a lady would never have dared to use it before any one, says Woman's Life. Tbe word, even, was carefully avoided in refined conversation. An actor who would have used a handkerchief on the stage, even in tbe most tearful moments of the oiav. would have been unmercifully hiss ed; and it was only in the beginning of the present century that celebrated ac tress, Mile. Duchesnois, dared to ap pear with a handkerchief in her hand. Having to speak of this nandkerctuei in the course of the piece, she could never summon enough courage to call it by its true name, but referred to it as "a light tissue." A few years later a translation of one of Shakespeare's plays, by Alfred de Vigny, having been acted, the word handkerchief was used lor the first time on the stage, amid cries of indignation from every part of the house. It is doubtlul it even todav brench ladies would carry handkerchiefs if the wife of Napoleon I. had not given tbe signal for adopting them. The bmpress Josephine, although really lovely, had bad teeth. To conceal them she was in the habit of carrying small handkerchiefs, adorned with costly laces, which she constantly raised grace fully to her lips. Of course, all the ladies of the court followed her example, and handkerchiefs then rapidly became an important part ol the feminine toilet. How Mrs. Pinkham HELPED MRS. G00DEN. LZTTIft TO MRS.

For years I had female troubles and did nothing for them. Of course I became no better and finally broke down entirely. My troubles began with inflammation and hemorrhages from the kidneys, then inflammation, congestion and falling of the womb and inflammation of ovaries.

I went back, but in less than a week was com pelled to give up and go to bed. On breaking down the second time, I de cided to let doctors and their medicine alone and try your remedies. Before the first bottle was gone I felt the ef fects of it. Three bottles of Lydia E.
