GOLD FOUND IN OLD BRICKS,
Walls of Mexican Adobe Houses yield
Treasure for the Men
Who Know. '
There are many remarkable towns In
Mexico, but . none more interesting
than Guanajuato, "The Hill of the
Frog." It might more properly be
called the "gold brick town," for tbe
houses have been found to contain
This Is a curious situation, but It
came about naturally. Guanajuato
pronounced Wah-nah-wahto is one of
the oldest mining towns In Mexico;
but the value of the place as a town
was discovered when a railroad com
pany decided to build a station there.
It was found necessary to tear down
about 300 adobe buildings, which were
made of the refuse of various mines
after the ore was extracted.
When it became known that the old
adobe buildings would be torn down
pieces taken at random were assayed.
It was found that because of the old
process, which lost much gold and sil
ver, they assayed from $3 to $24 a ton.
Tbe mean value was estimated to run
about Slght dollars gold a ton.
TbVold buildings have brought about
$30,000 Mexican In gold, and persons
who have built since the new ma
chinery bas been Installed In the mines
are bemoaning the fact that the new
houses do not contain as much gold as
tbe old.SclentIno American.

"When I am gone," said she, "1 feel
that for the. sake of the motherless
little ones you should marry again."
"Do you really think It would be
best,, darling?" asked the faithful
"Yes, William, I really do," replied
the invalid. "After a reasonable length
of time you should seek the compan
ionship of some good woman."
' "Do you know, my dear," said the
husband, "that you have lifted a great
burden from my mind? Now, there la
that charming widow Jones across the
way. She has acted rather friendly
toward me, ever since you were taken
ill. Of course, dear, she could never

her best to lessen my grief."

New Method Of Kteplng Potatoes.
A German publication, "The Prac
tical Adviser In Fruit Baising and Gar
dening," states that a new method for
keeping potatoes and preventing
sprouting consists In placing them on
a layer of coke. Dr. 8chiller of Bruns
wick, who bas published the method,
is of the opinion that the improved
ventilation by means of coke is not
alone responsible for the result, but
believes that It is due to the oxidation
of the coke, which, however, is a very
slow one. Coke always contains sul
phur, and It Is very possible that the
minute quantities Af oxides of carbon
and sulphur, which result from the ox
idation, mixing with the air and pene
trating among the potatoes are suffi
cient to greatly retard sprouting. Po
tatoes so treated are said to keep in
good condition until the following
Woman's Tastes Not Satisfied with
What Wat "Good for Her.
A young society matron who gives
one day a week to philanthropic work
undertook a class for training mothers
under my direction. In reality It was
a class in cooking, for the young ma
tron is an enthusiast upon proper com
binations of wholesome food. Tbe
women came and listened, and then I
suggested that the homes should be
visited to see what had been accom
plished. One day she called upon one of her
class In the early morning. The wom
an was frying cakes in deep fat.
"Oh, dear," said the young matron,
"why don t you cook oatmeal for the
children, as I showed you? You know
the 'akes are not good for you."
"No'm," cheerfully agreed the
woman, as she flapped the cakes upon
a platter. "I know, I know. But I don't

The Revealing Vision.
Long ago in the days when our
caged blackbirds never saw a king's
soldier without whistling Impudently
"Come over the water to Charlie," a
minister of Thrums was to be mar
ried, but something happened and he
remained a bachelor. Then, when he
was old, he passed In our square the
lady who was to have been his wife,
and her hair was white, but she, too,
was still unmarried. The meeting had
only one witness, a weaver, and he
said, solemnly, afterwards: "They
dlnna speak, but they Just gave one
another a look and I saw tbe love
light In their een." No more Is re
membered of these two, no being now
living ever saw them, but 'the poetry
that was In the soul of a battered
weaver makes them human to us for

"I went to a fashionable veddlng the
other day," remarked a man who has
little time for such things, "and I was
decidedly Impressed by the character
of tbe music that was played while the
assembled guests were waiting for the
wedding party to arrive. The princi
pal number played by the orchestra
was an air from one of the most mod
ern operas. It marks the entrance of
the heroine of the piece, who is com
ing on the scene to take part In a
wedding of complaisance with the
hero, who is generally regarded as one
of the greatest blackguards the world
of opera knows. Every character on
the stage knows that the Buddhistic
wedding ceremony that is to take
place is a sham and the marriage
turns out to be a tragedy of the shab
biest sort. And yet that music was
played In a church that stands for In
telligence If any one congregation In
this town does." Exchange.

to arouse him, but all efforts are un

alarmed; 'they fear he may never re
gain consciousness. It seemed that
yesterday evening right after diner
the man picked up his hat, put on his
overcoat and, although his wife was
sitting right In the room, she did not
say, "where are you going?" He
walked out of the house. At ten o'clock
in the evening the man returned. He
walked into the room where his wife
sat, and took off his hat and overcoat
She smiled at him pleasantly and did
not say, "Where have you been?" The
man fell unconscious to the floor.

A Weed That Steals Oysters.

beds of France and carried off 400,000
oysters. It has carried them off bod

The minute seeds of this weed float
up the English channel In the current
of the Gulf stream, they settle on
oysters in the Breton beds of Morbl

grow to the size of a duck's egg.
They are full of water, but at ma
