Even "When Mortally Wonndcfl He Will Try to Remain Stiin.linc. A veteran cavalry horse partakes of the hopes and fears of battle jnst the same as his rider. As tLe column swings into line a! waits the horse grown nervous over tbe waiting. If the wait is spun ont, lie will tremble and sweat and grow apprehensive. If he has been sis months in service, he knows every bugle cll. As tlie rail comes to ad vance, the rider- ran feel him working nt tbe bit with his tongue to get it be tween his teetb. As he moves out, he will either seek to get on faster than he should or iolt. He cannot bolt, how ever. The lines will carry him forward, and after a minute he will grip, lay back his ears, and one can feel his sud den resolve to brave the worst and have done with it as soon as possible." A man seldom cries out when bit in the turmoil of battle. It is the same with a horse. Five troopers out of six, when struck with a bullet, are out of their saddles within a ininnte. If hit in the breast -or shoulder, up go their bands, and they get a heavy fall ; if in the leg or foot or arm, they fall forward and roll oft. Even with a foot cut off by a jagged piece of shell a hor.se will not drop. It is only when shot through the head or heart that he come? down. He may be fatally wounded, bnt hobbles out of the fight to right or left and stands, with drooping head, until the loss of blood brings him down. The horse that loses his rider nnd is nnwounded himself will continue to ran with his set of fonrs until some movement throws him ont. Then he goes galloping here and there, neighing with fear and alarm, but he will not leave the field.- In his racing about he may get among the dead and wounded, bnt he will dodge them, if possible, and in any case leap over them. When he has come upon three or four other rider less steeds, they fall in and keep togeth er as if fcr mutual protection, and the "rally" of tbe bugle may bring the whole of them into ranks in a body. Public Opinion. PLAINT OF A MILLIONAIRE, Xo Pun In Life For n Sinn Who Hm Acxnlred EimrmouK "Wealth. What Js the smallest income on which a man may live in New York? was the question I asked today of a noted bank er, whose income cannot be less than $100,000 a year. "Well, " he replied, "my household expenses alone amonnt to $23,000 a year, and I do not see how I possibly could live on less than that." Then a reminiscent smile began to cross his countenance, and, heaving a little sigh, he said: "tint the happiest time of my life was when my wife and I and two children lived here on .."iOO a year. After all, happiness doesn't de pend en the amount of a man's income. "I was quite intimate with William H. Vanderbilt when he was considered the richest man in the country. I met him one day in Fifth avenue and said to him that he ought to be tbe happiest man in the world. 'I am not,' the great millionaire replied. 'My health is shat tered, and all tbe rncney I possess can not restore it I cannot even drive cne of my fine horses. It is" painful for me to eit down. My only possible exercise is for me to walk down the avenue. I receive threatening letters daily, and my nerves are so unstrung that I am constantly afraid that some assassin will waylay me. I am overrun with people who want to get money. I am the most wretched man in New York, and I tell you that after a person has accumulated enough to secure him against poverty and gratify his reason able wants every dollar in addition is a burden and weighs him down.' " Philadelphia Ledger. Romance-, nt Slniu'n Grcnt Pcnki. Siam's greatest mountain range is the Sam Hoi Yawt, or the 000 peaks. A quaint legend which explains their origin is set forth by the Siamese geol ogists as follows: "It appears that one Mong Lai and his wife once inhabited the neighbor hood (they were giants), and each promised their daughter in marriage, unknown to the other, to a different suitor. At-Iast the day of the nuptials arrived, and Chao Lai arid the Lord of Mleang Chin (China) both arrived to claim the bride. When the horrified fa ther found how matters stood having a regard for the value of a promise, which is not too common in the east he cut his daugher in half so that nei ther suitor should be disappointed. "Chao Lai inthe meantime, on find ing that he had a rival, committed sui cide, and the peak of Chao Lai is the remains of his body. The unfortunate bride is to be found in the islands off Sam Roi Yawt, the peaks of which are the remains cf the gifts which were to be made to the holy man who was to solemnize the wedding, while Kaw Chang and Kaw King, on the east side of tile gulf, are the elephant and buffalo cart in. which the presents wero brought." He Wan Acquitted. Here the voice of counsel for tbe de fense thrilled with emotion. "Gentlemen of the jury," he cried,' "you cannot believe the prisoner to be the cool, calculating villain the prose cntion would make him ont to bel Were he cool r.ndjialculating wonld he have murdered his wife, as he is ac cused of doing? Would he not rather have spared her in order that she might be here at this trial to weep for him and influence your verdict with her tears?" Only the thoughtless think lawyers do not assist the ends of justice. De troit Journal. DAWN'S MASQUE.

Pall Mall Gazette. HE DREADS A "RAZOR. And He Tlnx Good Itenson to After Ilix Knrrow Escape. "There is a physician now stopping at this house, "remarked the proprietor of one of the hotel barber shops, "who has a mortal dread of a razor in the bands of another. It originated in a re markable experience. Some years ago he was in a town in Iowa and stepped into a barber shop to get shaved. All the chairs were filled, so he sat down to wait. In a few minutes one of the bar bers called 'Nextl' and he was getting up when a gentleman who had just en tered addressed him. " 'I am in a great hurry to catch a train,' he said, 'and would be very grateful if you would allow me to take the chair ahead of yon.' "Such requests are not unusual, and the doctor, who is naturally obliging, told him to go ahead and resumed his seat. The other man had hardly climbed into position when the barber picked up a razor and cut his throat from ear to ear, killing him instantaneously. "In spite of stories to tho contrary, I think that is the only case of tho kind that ever happened in the United States. The barber turned out to bo in sane, but tho horror of the scene and tho-almost mfracnlous character of his own escape made such an impression on tho mind of the doctor that ho lias never sinco allowed anybody to shave him. "Only this morning I trimmed his hair, and in finishing the job I started, as is customary, to shape up the growth of his temples with the corner of my razor. The moment he caught sight of .the blade he turned nale as death. rDon:t touch me with thatl'heexcfaim- ed. 'Do tbe best you can with the scis sors and let the rtgol He has known me a long time and I suppose has confi dence in my sanity, but the reminis cence was too much for him, and, really, I don't wonder." New Orleans Times Democrat. The Grief of Parting. The man leaned right into the rail way carriage. There was positive an guish in his drawn face. The lady in side was very pretty and beautifully dressed. Her softnesses of complexion and hair, of lace and filmy material, triumphed in the searching glare of the electric light, which showed the rich luxury of every detail of her costume. She smiled with a pretty, regretful tenderness as she replied lightly to his earnest works. He looked at her as if he could never look long enough, as if her face held for him the whole mean ing of life. As thatrain began to move, his fingers fell passionately on the un gloved hand resting on the window ledge; then instinctively he sprang back, raised his hat, and I caught in full light a glimpse of his white face. Directly the train steamed out of the station the lady rose, carefully rolled up her veil, and, quite indifferent to my presence, proceeded hefore the mirror in the carriage to dust her face with a dainty pociet handkerchief, and to ap ply to forehead and nose the minutest layer of powder with a tiny puff. She patted and arranged her curls, drawing them with a hairpin into coqnettish po sition andenrve, and then, lowering her veil, she sank into tbe seat with a sigh of satisfaction. Academy. ASBESTUS. lome of the Peculiarities ot This 31yKteriiii!, Substance. Asbestns is a physical paradox, yet ane of nature's most marvelous produc tions. It has been called n mineralogical vegetable; it is both fibrous and crys talline, elastic, yet brittle; a floating stone, which can be readily carded, (pun and woven into tissue. In Ger many it is'known as steinflachs tone fiax), and the miners of Quebec give it quite as expressive a name pierre coton I. (cotton stone). The asbestos mines of Quebec are the most famous in the world, yielding 83 per cent of the en tiro output, Italy being the only com peting country, and there the industry is declining. Although Charlemagne is said to have had a tablecloth of asbestns, which he cleansed by throwing into the fire, it was practically unknown until 18.10. The Italian mineral was then experi mented with and some yeara later put on the market. In 1S7S the first Cana dian mine was opened, and the pioduct steadily increased until 1890, when 9,860 tons, worth $1,260,000, were mined. There has since been a decline in value, the amount for 1S90 being 12,200, worth only 430,000. Asbestus is flexible, noiicoinbnstiblo and a non conductor of heat and electricity, and on these properties its increasing nse depends. It is spun into yarn, from which cloth Is woven for drop enrtains in theaters, clothing for firemen, acd workers, etc. It is mado into lamp wicks and gloves for stokers and ropes for firo escapes. It is felted into mill board to be used as an insulator in dy namos and as a fireproof lining for floors. It is used to insnlate electric wires and as a covering to prevent loss of heat from steam pipes. Mixed with rubber it is used to pack steam joints. Pittsburg Dispatch. BATTLE WITH SHARKS. A Desperate Encounter In "VVlsIcli Two Men Eaters Were Slain. Probably the most desperate fight which has ever been witnessed between a couple of sharks and a human being took place at Havana some time ago. Several fruit peddlers had bearded a large mailboat, and among them was a swarthy, bare legged yonng chap noted among his comrades as a clever swim mer. -The purser of the vessel was stand ing by the gangway, holding his child in his arms, watching a couple of sharks that were hanging about the ship. Ac cidentally the child fell out of its fa ther's grasp into tbe water. Tho father immediately jumped overboard and seized bis child, and in a moment the sharks were making for the pair. Seeing the predicament, the bare leg ged young bnecaneer dropped his fruit basket and went over tho rail like a flash. As the first shark tnrned on ita back the invariable prelude to biting its victim the young fruit seller rose to the surface, and, with a long, keen edged knife, fairly disemboweled it. The other was not nearly so easily disposed of. The shark seemed to real ize that in tho fruit seller he had a dangerous foo and apparently sparred for an opening. Several men on board tbe vessel blazed away at the monster with revolvers, but the young fellow begged the men to desist, being un nerved by the firing. Fish and man dived alternately, and when the fish did make for its foe the plucky boy dived and plunged the knife in its Side. The water was crimson with blood when tho three wero hauled safe nnd sonnd to tho deck of the vessel, and a handsome sum of money was collected for the victor. "Why Yon Ynwn, Have you ever observed at n theater or conceit that the people who are most deeply interested appear between the acts to be quite weary cf the whole thing, yawning half a dozen times in succession? The reason of this is a physiological one. When your attention is much absorbed in anything exciting or touching, you breathe in a very shal low manner nnd tako into your lungs only half enough air. Consequently, when your attention is relaxed, you huvo to make up the deficiency. This you do by yawning, which, after all, ,is only breathing a very deep breath. If yon watcli o man at a play and observe that he is greatly moved by somo incident, you may feel sure that when the scene ends ho will sigh and a moment or two biter ynwn repeatedly. Of course the yawning, so far from bo ing a sign of weariness, is a proof of tho liveliest appreciation. Very often you will observe tho same phenomenon in a girl 'reading a novel.

To roll down a snow covered moun tain side tightly clasped in tho embrace of a grizzly bear is an (wperience few men pats through and live to tll. But that is what happened to Frank Lecky l.f Fresno, and when it was ail over he had only a few scratches and bruises and a big bearskin to show as signs of his terrible encounter. "It was the wickroe-t fkht I ever got into," said Frank when telling of his experiences, "and I have been in a good many, gohif? out hunting in tho Sierras every winter, as I do. "This big fight happened up in tho Whitney country It was jut a few miles east of tho Minarets and in the Bpot where a fellow is always pretty sure to find big game. ''"It was pretty late in the afternoon, and I was all alone in camp, as the other boys had not returned from a deer hunt they started on in the morning. "I had been dozing in the tent all day, but came out to have a look at the sky. As I glanced along the top of a bluff a few hundred feet from the camp I saw something dark moving about. "That was enough for me. I got my rifle and started right after it. Tho kinjl of game I was going after didn't on cern me at all. but I really didn't ex pect bear, at least such big cantanker ous bear. "Taking roundabout way through the snow, I scon reached the top of the blnff and began to crawl along care fully in order to get a gcod resting shot and not come upon my game too sud denly. "Finally I caught "a close view of a big dark body moving behind a clump of buhhes. It was so largo that for a moment I thought I had been stalking a cow and was ready to kick myself. Then a long drawn sniff and a deep growl told me it was bear I was sight ing. Instantly I was all excited with interest and strained every nerve to get tho beast in line and so plant a bullet in the right spot. The bear, however had a mind to keep his eyes on me and kept moving about as he peered between the brandies of the brush. "Snddenly one of the horses down' in the camp neighed loudly and attracted the bear's attention. As the bear turn ed and exposed his side I tired. Down went the bear like a bag of wheat, and I thought my rifle ball mnst have gone clean through its brain. Without stop ping to consider whether my shot had really been fatal. I rushed forward. As I stooped down to sco where the ball strnck, the bear jnmped up, and then I knew I had only 'creased' it that is, jnst grazed its head or spinal cord and knocked it senseless for a moment. ""Before I could swing my rifle for ward to get in a shot the bear had knocked it out of my hands and was right on top of me. Somehow I man aged to draw my knife and get in a few jahs that did no damage. The bear hugged me tighter and tighter, and I kicked harder and harder and jabbed wildly with my knife. Then we"both rolled on the ground, and the hear tried j to bite my face, but I kept off his fast chtwiug blows by hugging tightly j against him. I jabbed and jabbed as I we rolled over and over, and the bear's ' face and claws weio pietty haitiy cut and ouo of his oea was put out of ser For a SIIMJMJSR NEW STEEL PASSENGER STEAMERS.

Tlie snow all around was torn up and spattered with blood.

"It could not have taken more than a few seconds, but it seemed to me like years. Now. I was on top of the bear, and now underneath. Snow filled my eyes and ears, and I was scratched and wounded and bumped untiL I thought my end had come. "It seems to mo that I kept striking at the bear as we rolled, or rather shot, downward, for we were, going at the speed of a cannon ball. Then there was a sudden bunixi while I was on top, and the bar gave a moan of pain and let So of me. "That gave me my chance, and I drove my knife into his heart. 'Tho skin measnred over seven feet.

In "Bonneville's Adventnres" an incident is related showing his method of re straining the evil propensities of his braves. Mr. Rohert Campbell, while a tr,tc.t in tho lodge of Arapcoish, had collected a largo quantity of furs and, fearful of being plundered, had deposit ed but n part in the lodge. The rest he fcuried. One night Arapooish entered the lodge with a cloudy brow and, turning to Campbell, said: "Yon have more furs with you than ycu4iave brought to my lodge?" "I havs," replied Campbell. "Where are they?" Campbell described the place. " 'Tis well," said Arapooish. 'You speak straight. But your cache has been robbed. Go and see how many skins have been taken." Campbell 'examined the cache a'nd estimated hi3 loss to be about .150 bea ver skins. Arapooish summoned his people, "re proached them for robbing a guest and commanded that the skins should be brought back. For himself, ho would not eat or drink till all had been re stored. Soon the skins began to come in. They were laid down in the lodge, and those who bronght them departed with out a word. ArapooHi sat in one cor ner silent. Above a hundred pelts were brought in, nnd Campbell expressed himself satisfied. Not so the Crow chief tain. He fasted all night. In the morn ing more skins were brought in, and. eye and two at a time they continued to como through tho day. "Is all right nowl" demanded Ara pooish. "All is right," replied Campbell. "Good! Now bring mo meat and drink," said the old chief. liilitft:l Memorieti. "Yon don't catch me riding my wheel on that cinder path." "Why not?"

From the valley of morn, where teardrops . bang, From glittering bow of promise sprang ; So near it was plain to the dullest sight. So' distant no hand could reach it quite, And over the. hills and far'away It stretched where the heights untrodden lay. But fancy, truer of eye than truth. Could see rainbow land from plains of youth. There was gold uncounted in that fair land. There were shining laurels and honors grand. There were love undying and friendship true, Ove the mountains bright and blue. But rough and hard was the upward climb On the treacherous slope of the hills of time. The laurels w e saw from the plain below Vie uusetl ere we reached the line of snow. And the gold for which we greedily wrought, If we-found ot all, it was dearly bought. Few are the eyes that are blest to find The road to the land where all are blind, YThero the happiest one is be who lives Alone for the happiness ho gives. And the only poor is the wretch whose alms Go begging in vain for needy palms. God set its bounds by his realms above. For rainbow land is th land of love. James Jeffery Roche in Boston Pilot. Black Sheep. From their folded mates they wander far. Their ways seem harsh and wild, They follow the beck of a baleful star. Their paths are dream beguiled. Yet haply they sought but a wider range, Somo loftier mountain slope, And little recked of the country strange Beyond the gates of hope. And haply a bell with a luring call Summoned their feet to tread Midst the cruel rocks where the deep pitfall And the lurking snare are spread. Maybe, in spite of their tameless days Of outcast liberty. They're sick at heart for the homely ways Where their gathered brothers be And oft nt night, when the plains fall dark And the hills loom large aud dim, For the shepherd's voice they mutely hark, Aud their sonls go opt to him. Meanwhile, "Black sheep, black sheep! we cry. Safe in the inner fold. And maybe they hear and wonder why And marvel out iii the cold. Richard Burton in Atiantia Monthly. The Dandelion.

Soul of tho dandelion. Youth's Companion. The Crow's Superiority. The crow that perches on the fence Caws, careless of tho morrow: It scratches up the corn today Nor looks for griefs to borrow. And, filled at last, it flies away. But not in search of sorrow. I cannot sit me down to rest. Tor life is such a hurry; Tbe sky. is clear today, but I Have fears I cannot bury ; Impending troubles make me sigh . And rush around and worry.

A. Flactus, of Dairy, Klamath Co., Oregon. " When you kindly advised me to take your ' Golden Medical Discovery ' for my trouble, I followed your advice and re ceived great benefit. I am over fifty years of age, and for over a year I suffered with pains in stomach, headache, irregular periods, constipation and indigestion. I had no appetite at all, and could not sleep. So it went on for months, till one day all at once I cot dizzy. 'my heart seemed to beat as fast as it could, and I felt like fainting. My heart beat 120 or 125 times-a minute. I went to the doc tor ; he gave me medicine, but it did no good. I thought I had to die. Every night when I went to bed I feared I would not be alive in the morning. I wrote to Dr. Pierce for advice. He prescribed his ror ' Golden Medical Dis covery' and Pleasant Pellets.' At first I thought the medi cines did no good, but I kept on taking them as advised, and when I had taken five bot tles I was so well that it seemed I did not need any more, but still I took the sixth bottle. I was then perfectly well. The headaches, pains in stomach, heart trouble and all left me. I have had a good appe-tite-ever since, and can sleep well and do all my work."

One of the proprie tors, a Parsee named Nowrojee, looks after the engines and machinery of the mill. Lately the 'machinery bas not been working well, and the engine in particular has given considerable trou ble. The native engineers seem to have got it into their heads that the engine was really driven by a god which took the form of steam. When it went wrong, they thonght the god was angry and needed propitiating by tho sacrifice of a hnman being. One night a Hindoo laborer named Gcvindah was passing the mill Some workmen, sitting in the yard smoking, called ont to him to join them. The gang had just been discussing the vaga ries of the engine and the necessity for offering a sacrifice to it. The whole party walked toward the boiler, and some of.the men seized Govindah. Oth ers swung open the furnace door and the unfortunate man was crammed in side head first. They bad to loose their hold of his body in order to shut the furnace door, whereupon Govindah, who was a very powerful man, man aged to get out aud free himself. He was frenzied with pain and fear and had snstained ghastly injuries. The engineers did not make a second attempt to thrust him in the furnace, and .he crawled away to his hut. His faithful wife tended him all night and took him in the morning to the local hospital, where it was found that he was horribly burned about the head, arms and chest, parts being absolutely charred. He died of tetanus. Kowrojee and one of the engineers have been ar rested. Bombay Letter tor Chicago Record. "Julius you don't mind my houseclean Ing, do youf" ".No, dearie.
