I'lnclug the three sledges round the edge of the bote, we bunked them In with now. Then we took n tarpaulin from one of the sledges, nnd with wulrus hide rope Improvised n sort of roof over our dugout. The dogs dug holes In the snow nnd nettled down comfortnbly to sleep. They were Almost Immediately covered ,vlth snow. At this time the thermometer stood thirty-live degrees below zero. Wo could not tell whether It wns Actually nowlng or whether the snow was only being drUen by the wind; but nt nny rate the air was tilled with It. nnd the prospect was anything but exhil arating. We lined the bottom of tho hole with furs, got out our sleeping bags, nnd prepared for n long siege. As we were without fuel, we had to eat cold food. Frozen reindeer meat taken raw Is not nn nppetlzlug dish, Init this, together with hnrd bread and pounded soup ball, formed our diet for the next few days. In this snowy pris on we were held for four days, nnd we .were obliged to climb out every three or four hours and relieve the tar paulin of the weight of snow. Our fur were damp, caused by our breath, which congealed, nnd thawed ngnln from the warmth of tho ttody. To say the very least, wc were extremely un comfortable. At last It got so bad thnt I gave or ders to bum one of tho sledges, nnd thnt day we fensted on hot ten. To while awny the tedious hours I gave my nrctlc friends some lessons In astronomy, using snowballs ns object lessons. On the sldo of our excavation I made a rough bas-relief of tho great Slnsonlc 'I'emplo In Chicago. They looked at it very politely, but I could ce that they took me for tho past mas ter of lying. I told them nil about elections, tele phones, phonographs nnd railroads, and gathered from their expression that they thought I had gone mad from the cold and exposure. They looked at one nnothcr and muttered. "DurocJ duroc!" which is Husslan for crazy. ' iluttlftfe . tldltllilll lltlil lw!lli. f f 4. . themselves us much ns possible from T " ......

"One day there came along a pretty. well-drecd young woman, who asked for the bag herself. She had the cou pon all light, and went on to tell me thnt until the day before she had been the stenographer of this man, but now she had gone on the stage. "Her employer had discovered that she had saved up about a hundred cou pons herself, nnd ns she had casually told him she mut now purchase arti cle for travel, out of the goodness of hi heart he gave her his coupons and she got the bag. It only goes to show that a man can't save coupons. "Women, get coupons by strategy as well as purchases. Their chief victim Is the susceptible cigar clerk behind the counter." New York Sun.

ONE COLONY THAT FAILED. Bethel. Mo., Wan a Flourishing Com munity Ncurly Fifty Years Ago. The troubles of "Elijah III." nnd Zlon City recall the attempt to found a permanent colony in this neighborhood In the tlrst third of tho last century, says a Macon (Mo.) correspondent of the Kansas City Star. The place was named Itethel, and was settled by tier man socialists. Dr. Kyle, u man of tine physique and excellent ability, was the head of It. The communists bought n large tract of laud on which they built wagon factories, flouring mills, foundries and machine shops. Tho lo cation was on the north bank of North Blvcr. Everything was owned In common. No man was richer than his neighbor. Disputes of nil kinds were referred to Dr. Kyle. Bethel was ono of tho most thriving communities in northern Mis souri for fifty years. Tho articles man ufactured were of n plain, substantial character, and tho Itethel trado mark on them was n guaranty of their excel lence. Tho proceeds of labor went Into the common fund. Tho women were as efficient workers as the men. Tho bouses fronted on the street lino, so as tc allow plenty of room for truck gar dens in tho rear. Tho upper part of each liouso was constructed of brick nnd plastered Insldo nnd out. These mnsslvo dwellings stand, unweakencd by time, to-day, nnd look as though they might last 10) yearn yet. On North Klver was a largo amuse ment houso called "The Allm." There were homo theatricals nnd entertain ments here weekly. After running a few years tho success of Itethel col ony was regarded ns permanent and Dr. Kyle began to establish branches. Ono was founded In tho northern part, of Adair county nnd called "Nineveh." Biblical names were applied to stores, as in .Ion City. Foundries, factories nnd other Industries were started here. Then some ono discovered thnt a wider field was offered In Oregon, nnd the Nlnevltes went to Clnckymns County In that territory. Tho trouble enmo In tho early 80's. Both colonies beenino dissatisfied with tho administration nf affairs and tho majority voted to disband as a commu nity organization. A committee was appointed to make it fair division among all tho members, nnd after that It was each man for himself. Dr. Kyle's son died recently In poverty at Bethel. In the flourishing days of the colony It is said that the Kyle family had property worth many thousands of dollars. Bethel exists to-day, a small hamlet, but n model of cleanliness and thrift. Its peoplo now prefer tho In dividual plan of operation to that of owning property In common. OKKICIAI. 1'tIIIMCATION. AXN't'At.

A (lerman organist who went to live In St. Petersburg, says tho London Mall, had nil experience there with n new enp which nlmoit iiintlc him be lieve In the ninglc of his Teutonic fiilry-talcs. He bought the cup during his first day In the Itiixilati capital, and wore It the next day when ho went out for it walk. On his return to his room he wns iinmzed to find twopuises in liN pocket, one containing mote than )?."(l In gold. The next day after his walk he found four purses In his outside pock et, and his uinnzeinent wns even great er. A third day with it similar profit able result sent him to the chief of police to lay his story before him. In company with a detective he went to the tailor who hud made Hie cap and found It was from an odd piece of Kngllsh cloth brought In by a stranger. From It the tnllor had itiudc l." Identi cal caps to order. Having the bit left he had made a sixteenth cup, and sold It to the organist. The detective then followed the or ganist through the streets, and soon solved the mystery. The cap was the emblem of a gang of pickpockets who worked together. The one who secuiyd a purse dropped It Into the pocket of the first confederate he saw. The cap hud Identified the (lermiiii, mill he hud reaped the reward. Two or three days of shadowing by detectives resulted in the arrest of ll of the baud, and the chief of police thereupon presented the organist with a generous purse of gold for his share In the capture.
