Three big expeditions of the American Museum of Natural History arrived from the Rocky Mountain regions in New York the other day after several months of rough work, bringing nearly two carloads of petrified skeletons of nearly 500 animals, mostly new to science, and which lived on earth from 500,000 to 8,000,000 years ago. Among the many rare finds, one which caused considerable speculation and excitement among the scientists at the museum, were two dinosaurs of a species new to science, r l 1 fl one 01 waicn was ut uuge piupiuuuo, beariDg some resemblance to the great creature known as triceratops. The expedition to the Washekie BasiD, in Southern Wyoming, was in charge of Prof. Walter Granger ; that to the Laramie formation of Eastern Central MontanaProf. Barnum Brown, that to the Black Hills, Prof. Albert TLompson. Professor Brown obtained a skeleton of the claosaur, or spoonbill dinosaur, except the limbs, and enough parts of other skeletons to restore the nimal complete as in life. Heret0fore the femur was lacking. He also found a very complete skull of a crocodile that is new to science. Professor Granger found the skeleton of the largest mammal, known as the loxolophodon, a mixture of elephant and rhinoceros. It had six horns?two enormous ones in the back of the skull, two smaller ones over the eyes and two rudimentary ones on the tip of the nose. He obtained seven big cases of bonee of more than 150 species. He found the two-toed animals dominant. The evidence all showed that the two-toed animals, in a way a modern fauna, bad crowded out the three-toed animals of the older orders in the struggle for existence and the survival of the fittest. The Moon. One of the most beautiful, interesting and conspicuous objects in tha world is the moon, and yet nine-tenthc of the people know nothing it. They do not know the distance to it, itf size, its motions, its physical nature ' ? ? it They will pay a aouar w bee iu? "blue moon" or some other such nonsense ; but to see the real moon, thai has the glory of God about it, the; would scarcely turn their heads. Behold it, these fair October nights ir its full beauty, high in the skies. Il seems almost to speak to one, so mild and gentle it is, and so very near ' and yet it is 240,000 miles away, bul the nearest of all heavenly bodies, ex cept now and then the big meteoi that comes sailing through our air. It seems to be traveling west, yet il is going east at the rate of more that half a mile in a second. And it ii going with the earth around the sur four times faster than that. Up there in the skies, it seems on ly a foot or two in diameter, but it ii 2,160 miles. It would take nearly five areas the size of the United Statei t to cover its surface. It is as dry a* a cinder, which it, probably, is?n( ! air, no water, and it is colder thai ice all the time, and on tbe side tare , ed from the sua it is 300 degrees be low zero. Gravity at the moon is one sixth than it is at the surface of thi earth. Therefore, if a man weighing 150 lbs. on the earth would go to th moon he woald only weigh 25 poandj there, and if he would keep op hi< , strength, he conld jump 40 feet oi the moon where he could jump onl; six feet on the earth. "All my old friends tell me th first year is the trying one for mar ried folk," remarked tbe bride. "The; eay that if yon get through the fin year you're all right." "Yes, that's true," said the woma who had celebrated her silver wed ding. "You don't mind it much aft? the first year." Teacher?Why did the ancients h lieve the earth to be fiat ? Bright Boy?'Cause they didn have no school globes to prove it wi round. [J The Lady?You cruel boy, to ki that poor little bird. What are y< going to do with it ? Boy?Goin' to trim a 'at like you } with it, lady. | epi , NOVEMBER 1. 1906. _ Queer Ways of Earning a Living. Id the strennons scramble for wealth and a living in the great 'competitive game of life in New York, many men and women are driven to odd occupations for a livelihood, says the New York Herald. Some of these are described in the following : George Therma makes a living by being hanged 16 times a week for "50 a month and his cakes," as the contract reads. Therma is a Mexican, and as the star performer in the horse-thief act in the Pawnee Bill Wild West Show is lariated while riding a horse at anrl lfl HraoaA(i At u1 caa-ucvn d^vuj ?uv? *w ? the end of the lasso a distance of several hundred feet to a tree, where he is Strang ap in trae Jadge Lynch style. He has a piece of Btift linen fixed around his neck, and the rope does him little damage, though the Mexican Rurales, who come along to take his body, save him fiom a most uncomfortable position. On several occasions since he has been doing the work, the.cowboys who hang him have grown careless, and Therma has been cut down more nearly like a dead man he is supposed to be than the live man he wants to be. John Mahn gets $25 a week for breaking eggs. He works in a big pie-baking plant in the city, and has the job ot breaking the eggs that are used in the manufacture of pie. He breaks 25 dozen eggs a day, separates the yolks from the whites, and beates up some of them. Besides this, he has to inspect each egg to Bee that none of them contains an embryo broiler or the odor of formaldehyde. One is apt to wonder at the sum of $25 a week for such work, but it is explained that Mahn earns it by the economical way in which he handles the eggs, aud it is pointed out that a cheap mau might be very expensive. It is said also that the monotony of the job gets on most men's nerves, and few can be found who will stay at it any length of time. The man who furnishes funny sto ries and anecdotes for would-bewita, reconteura and after-dinner speakers is another man who has picked out an odd occupation. He is Charles Hoppe, and has no particular place of business, but if he calls on you you can ' well atford to give him an audience, for he is a most interesting little man. He will furnish you for twenty-five or fifty cents a week a typewritten sheet containing the latest quips of the day, and funny stories, that you can tell at home, or, for a larger consideration, he will furnish you with j speeches to be made at public gatherings which are guaranteed to make ^ you fame of the burning brand. He does not say how many subscribers ho has lor his regular funny story service, but he will make a spe. cial service for you that he guarantees not to be duplicated by any one else. Another odd occupation is that of t an auction clincher. In this case, it is a beautiful young woman, who, until a few years ago, was one of the ' best known "show girls ' at the casino. Now she is making her living more easily. She is employed by a big Fifth avet nue auction company which makes a specialty of rugs. 8he met the man? ager of the concern through her knowledge of rugs, and one day he asked her if she didn't want to help him iu a little matter that might be profitable to both. His plan was this: 1 i-*_ __ r Id ail auctions certain iow go iur much lees than their value if someone 3 doee not stimulate the bidding. With ( rugs this is especially so, for often the } true value of a rug doee not appear in the cursory glance people give them at salee. He suggested that this girl go to the auctions, having been told g the minimum price at which every ^ rug is to go, and if the bidding should e not reach that figure, bid it up and 3 apparently buy the rug, thus saving g it for the company. She tried it, and the plan worked ^ so well that now she is in the employ of this company permanently, and at* tends every auction sale, taking a re? mote seat, and bidding only when it ' looks as though the rug were going 7 too cheap. it A nnthar odd occupation is that of the women who advertises to call at Q bachelors' lodging to do all necessary * darning of socks and underwear, and r to look after the linen for those who are not fortunate enough to have some ^ one to do it for them. Then there is a man who cuts cat t meat at Washington market. He hai u had the same stand for 20 years, and has never sold anything but little five and ten cent packages of such meal ^ as cats are fond of. )Q Visitor?"Johnny, give me Um rs name of the largest diamond T" Johnny?"The ace." A Rhinoceroses Getttnf scam. The rhiooeeros market is corhered. Not a single specimen of this ngliest of ugly beasts is to be had in the open markets of the world. Zoological collectors and circus own ere the w. rld over are unable to secure one, for the world's supply is apparently ran oat. In conseqaence, the price of this homely beast is enormous. There are known to be two in this country. One, an old chap, tottering with age and screwed up from rheumatism, is in the Central Park (New York) Zoo, and the other, a youngster about 1 ydtra old, and a black African, is in tne poss.-esion ot Ringling Bros. According to Paul Souder, a wild animal authority in the employ of the Ringlings, the sun of the "rhino" is fast setting. Not only is he an exceptionally rare article in captivity, bat he has become so scarce io the wild state as to be already regarded as among the semi-extinct animals. The market price of an able-bodied rhinoceros was until a few years ago anywhere from $5,000 to $6,000. Now circus managers would be willing to pay $25,000 were it possible to obtain one. Several varieties of rhinoceros are extinct. Among these are the white rhinoceros of Africa. The squaremouthed rhinoceros is so rate as to be considered practically extinct, and the black African variety, regarded not so many years ago as the most common, has almost entirely disappeared. The rhinoceros has always been a problem to keepers of animals, for, despite his toughness of hide and appearance, captivity has resulted in early death. He is a beast essentially of the wilds and in make-up so foreign to anything like domesticity that all efforts at breeding in captivity have failed. A very few years will place the rhinoceros with the quagga, or wild ass, of South Africa, which disappeared 30 years ago. A Soldier Who Is Afraid. Gen. Frederick D. Grant says in the New York Defender : "Tell the young men through your paper that General Grant does not drink a drop of liquor?has not for eighteen years, because he is afraid to drink it. I tried to drink with extreme moderation, because I knew that alcohol is the worse poison a man could take into hie system; but I found out it was au impossibility to drink moderately. Because moderate drinking is a practical impossibility I became an absolute teetotaler?a crank, if you please I will not allow it even in my house. Drink is the grentest curse, because practically all crime and all disaster are the result of it. Nearly every great calamity in the country, barring accidents of nature, are due to drink. If I could, by offering my body a sacrifice, free this country from the fell cancer, the demon drink, I'd thank the Almighty for the privilege of doing it. If I had the greatest appointive powers in the country no man would get even the smallest appointment from me unless he shownf his ah on! nut teetota I ism. UU I'lVA/l Vi U??f ww-?v. . WW Ab it is, my own appointees, tbe members of my staff, not one of them touches a drop. Tbey know better." Looking for Boys. "When we nee tbe boys on tbe streets and in public places," says tbe London Free Press, "we often wonder it tbey know that tbe business men are watching them. In every bank, store or office there will soon be a place for a boy to fill. Those who ' ftf tka affairs nf lisVC ki-IC UMUlj^cuiout VI >UV w. the business bouses will select a boy in whom they have confidence. When they select one of the boys they will not select him for his ability to swear, use slang, and smoke cigarettes. Theee men may have some of these habits themselves, bat they are looking for boys who are as nearly gentlemen in every sense of the woid as they can find, and they are able to sire the character of every boy in the city. They are not looking for rowdies, and when a boy applies for one of these places and is refused, they may not toil him the reason why they do not want him, bat the boy can depend upon it he bee been rated according to his behavior. Boya cannot afford to adopt the habits and conversation of rowdies if they ever want to be called to responsible positions." G. B. Burban* testifies alter tow years. G. B. B urban*, of Cartisle Center. N. ' Y., writes: "About four years ago I i wrote you stating that I had been eo. tirely cured of a severe kidney trouble ' by taking less than two bottles of Fol, ey's Kidney Cure. It entirely stopped the brick dust sediment, and pain and ? symptom*of kidney disease disappeared I am glad to say that I have never had a return of any of those symptoms daring the four years that have elapsed and * I am evidentally cored to stay eared, and heartily reoommend Foley's Kidnay Cure to any one suffering from kidney or bladder trouble." ??

Mr. Owen Higgins, of Baltimore, the man who captured the aniform of General Caster, the famous army officer and Indian-fighter, during the Civil War, and who took part in many /t.rino miila hv th? Confederates, was in Winchenter last week. Mr. Higgins was bora iu Ireland. He ceme to this country at the age of eight with hie parents and for some years made hie home in Jefferson county, W Va., then Virginia. At the age of twelve years he joined the Confederate Army and served in Company ' D," Twelfth Virginia Cavalry, Koeeer's Brigade. Throughout the war he saw active and stirring service. Mr. Higgins told bow he came into poaeeeeion of Oeneral Custer's uniform. Part of the uniform he gave to Major Knott, his commanding officer, but the coat, made of handiome English cloth and trimmed with gold buttons, he gave to a lady to keep for him and after the war got it from her. The garment is now in his home at Roland Park, Baltimore, and is a treasured possession. Soon after the battle of Gettysburg Mr. Higgins took part in a daring raid by Confederates under the com* mend of Major Knott and Captain Kearney between Harper's Ferry and Shepherdstown, W. Va. There were but eighteen Confederate soldiers in the party, yet they captured a score of Yankees and General Custer's wagon train. j At two o'clock in the morning?the I night being very dark?the daring Confederate raider* stole into Lbe Union lines near Shepherdstown and secured a biding place in a strip of woods. A courier from General Qua* ter to Captain Leonard, the bead quartermaster at Harper's Ferry, waa captured that morning by the Confederates, and it was learned that Custer's wagon train waa to paae that point. M The next day a party of nine Federal soldiers, who had been eent by General Custer to guard his wagon train, was captured by the Confederates, and on the following day the wagon train, with several prisoners, waa captured. The plunder was divided among the raiders, and to Mr. Higgins fell a trunk, whioh be broke open with a club. Inside be found a dress uniform belonging to Qeneral Custer. Tbt trousers and v??t he presented to Major Knott, but the coat be gave to a lady to keep for bim. Tbe Con federates finally succeeded in eeoaping with tbe prisoners back into their own lines. Since tbe war Mr. Higgins has been in tbe employ of contractors and baa prospered. He has several sons and daughters?Winchester Star. He?If you don't stop looking so sweet I'll kiss yon. She?No, you won't. He?I won't, sb ? She?No; unless you. can kssp ms from screaming and ?er?yon know yon can. "I say, mama," asked little Tosaay, "do fairy tales always begin with 'once upon a timer " "No, dear, not always/' replied ?.s mama; "they sometimes begin wuo, 'My lore, I bar* been detained at the office again to-night.'"
