^ Dangen of Pony Express Riding;.
In Tbe Century there is an article on
'Tho Pcny Express, " between St. Jo
seph, Mo., and San Francisco, written
by W. F. Bailey. The author s»s:
Considering the danger encountered,
the percentage of fatalities was extraor-,
dinarily small. Far more station em
ployees than riders were killed by the
Indians, and eyen of tho latter more
were killed off duty than on; This can
be explained by the fact that the horses
furnished the riders, selected as the}'
Were for speed and endurance, were far
•npeiior to the mounts of tho Indians.
There is only one case on record
where a rider was caught, and that was
owing to his having been surrounded.
ThiB occurred in Nebraska, along tbe
Platte river. He was shot, and soveral
days later his body was fonnd. His

found with the mail intact. It was

forwarded toits destination. In laying
out the route through the Indian conn
try pains were taken to avoid anything
that would afford cover for an ambush
ed foe.
One of the greatest dangers encoun
tered by the pony express riders was
{from immigrants and others who mis
took them for Indians. In those days it
was shoot first and investigate after
ward, provided the shooter survived to
make an investigation. A number of tbe
riders met their death in this way, be
ing mistaken for Indians, horse thieves
or road agents. It is a strange bnt nota
ble fact thatr the Indians often stood and
saw the daring riders fly past withont
offering to molest them. There was a
mystery about it that made it "bad
medicine" to interfere with thorn. Su
perstitiou8 as they were, they seldom
A Similar Case,
The Indian may be unsophisticated by
Whipple, writing in The Temple Maga
ziue, showB that he has a dry sense of
homor.
His Indian flock was visited by a
speculative Yankee who hungered after
their good lands and tried to persnado
them to exchange their reservation fora
worthless tract of country elsewhere.
A council of the tribe was called togeth
er, and the Yankee addressed the assem
bly.
"My friends, I have lived 55 years in
this world," he said, "and the winds of
55 winters have blown over my head
and silvered it over with gray. As a
true man I advise you to acoept this
uew treaty at once."
He sat down, and at the same mo
ment an old chief sprang to his feet.
'Look at mot" he said. "The winds
of 65 winters have blown over my head
and silvered it gray, but they have not
blown away my brains. "
"That conference was ended," said
the bishop laconically.
Weeds as Food.
What is even regarded as a vile weed
can, with a little stretch of imagina
tion, be turned into an ornamental plant
or delicious vegetable. This is especial
ly the case with the common burdock,
Lappa major. Schoolboys all know it
from gathering the burs and compress
ing them togother by tho curved points
of the floral involucre. This is all they
know about it. It is difficult to see any
thing rnoro to be despised in the bur
dock leaf than in the leaf of the rhu
barb. It appears that it is largely used
in China for food, but it is stated that
if the stalks be cut down before the
flowers expand and then be boiled the
taste isrelished equally with asparagus.
The leaves when young are boiled and
etaten ns we eat spinach. In Japan it
is in universal use. Thousands of acres
are devoted to its culture, but in this
case the root is the object. It requires
deep soil to get tho roots to the best ad
vantage. —Meehan's Monthly.
The Heaviest Tlilnn In the World.
The heaviest thing in the world is ehe
metal osmium, the bluish whito metal
with violet luster which Mr. Smithson
Tennant discovered 90 years ago in the
residue from dissolved platinum ores.
This metal has a specific giavityof 22.
477; that of gold being 19.265; lead,
11.867; iron, 7.79, and lithium, the
lightest, only 0.594,
The French chemist, .Toly, determined
that osminnt is likewise the most in
fusible of metals. It could never be
tiade to yield to the oxyhydrogen flame
which makes platinum and irridium
run like water, but Joly has been sub
jecting osmium to the exclusively high
temperature of tho electric arc which
Moissan has of late employed successful-,
ly in the manufacture of diamonds.
Under this fierce bent tho rare metal,
ruthenium, which used to be deemed all
but infusible, readily melts, but osmium
remains refractory, there being apparent
ly only the faintest traces of fusion. On
this accouut osmium cannot be prepared
in sufficient quantities to make it very
useful in the arts, but its alloy with ir
ridium, which defies the acids, is of
Como value, nothing better having been
found wberewith to lip gold pens. Be
ing nonmagnetic, its employment for
tho bearings of tbe mariner's compass
has been advocated.—Popular Science
Monthly.

When Jenny Lind first sang in Leip

cert. under Mendelssohn's direction.
Naturally there was a great demand
tor tickets, despite the fact that the
prices were raised. It was therefore de
cided tliat the students of the Conserva
lorium must waive their usual right to
freo admission to these concerts. But
the students objected with vigor. They
were as anxious as anybody to hear the
"Swedish Nightingale."
A protest was made and young Otto

not understand. |

TOMMY CRUSE.
In Iïar<l Luck When lie Struck Drum
Luuimond and Dloomed Out.
When I met Tommy, first, his only
Asset was a serions danger, for his five
underfed and underbred ponies were
about to bo seized for overdue taxes. I
could not help Tommy with money, but
tried to with advice. "Strike old Sum
Ashby for a couple of hundred dollars,'
suggested. Sam Ashby was one of the
ricli men of Helena, Mon , at that pe
riod and ran a small savings bank. Tom
my Cruse "tried old Sam Ashby." All
he got, however, was some pretty free
talk, in which the banker assured Tom
my Cruse that he wonld rather throw
his money into the homo of his satanio
majesty than loan it to snch a drunken,
shiftless fellow.
Tommy Cruft gfft the 'money, how
ever. Three weeks later he located the
knew lie had a big thing, but somehow
he could make nobody believe in his
tninc. For years be worked at it, how
ever, living at times a dog's life.
Once, while talking to a friend of
mine, he fell forward unconscious. He
bad not eaten a mouthful of food for
86 hours, and yet, with dogged persist
ency, had worked on till ho fell in his
tracks. At last his day came. He open
ed up a big vein and bad $1,000,000 to
his credit in a good safe bank. Hard
times over, he decided to pose as a "sol
id citizen," so he opened a savings
bank in Helena. One of the first men
to apply to Tommy Cruse, banker, for
a small loan was the one time banker,
old Sam Ashby, now less prosperous.
Then came to tho old prospector the
happiest moment of his life, one tbnt
wiped out all memory of starvation and
privation . For Tommy Cruse, showing
his would be customer to the door, as
sured that customer, in language too
emphatic and graphic for English ears,
that lie would sooner throw his money
than loan it to snch a drunken, shift
less fellow as Sam Ashby.—Cornbill

THE WELL MANNERED BOY.
Hl«
Be la Simply Charming, bat Altogether
Too Scarce.
Is there anything more charming id
this world than a nice, well mannered
boy? I don't want to be hypercritical,
but I must add, as I am a strictly vera
cious woman, that they are, alas, as
rare as they are charming.
Such a boy, the well mannered gen -
ins, thank heavens, I met not long
ago, and my instant thought was, What
a fine mother his must be. I know her
by reputation, a celebrated actress, who
has carefully shielded her private life
from the public, and my estimation of
that woman immediately rose 50 de
grees. None but a woman of culture,
.efinemeut and true nobility of charac
ter could rear a son whoso every light
est word showed respect for women, in
nate good breeding, and, best of all, in
this day of affected skepticism among
the jeunesse doree, an honest belief in
the existence of good among men and
women in general.
And I couldn't help thinking sorrow
fully as I chatted with this delightful
boy how few mothers really understand
their meter. It's the most responsible
work in the world, that of motherhood,
and is entered into with the least train
ing and preparation. Women are pro
verbially proud, vain, their ^masculine
critics say, and I wonder whether they
realize how they aro reflected in their
children? If they did, would they not
make a greater effort to have reflected
only their good points, their gentleness,
breeding, and, above all, their faith in
human nature.—Philadelphia Record.
The Scaly Ant Eater.
An animal inude of tin plate, of tho
shape of an elongated fir cone, about
three feet in length, which crackles and
rustles with every movement, is one of
the latest acquisitions of the Zoological
society of London. Its name is the pan
golin, or scaly ant eater, and it belongs
to the same family gronp as the arma
dillo and platypus. It has excited great
attention at the zoo, for it is—if wo are
correctly informed—the first animal of
tbe kind which has been exhibited
there. Its homo is where the termites,
or white ants, aro found, for tho animal
feeds on these destructive creatures and
possesses claws which are designed to
break down their strongholds. The
claws are ulso necessary for burrowing
in tbe ground, for the pangolin exca
vates a cavo for himself and his mate
eight feet or so below the surface of
the earth, and in this strnngb homo one
or two young are produced every year.
The pangolin at present at the zoo is
fed upon ants and their eggs, and also
exhibits a partiality for cockroaches
scalded in milk. Tho scales with which
its body is covered are hard and sharp
as steel, and it can give a terribly cut
ting blow with its powerful tail. It can
roll its body up into a ball like a hedge
hog when it so wills.— Publia Opinion.
Clerical Dunce«.
It is to be feared that clergymen wno
have entered the church through theolo
gical colleges are wretched scholars as a
rule. The bishops have lately found it
necessary to insist on au entrance exam
ination on general subjects before ad
mission to a theological college cun be
granted, and the results have been de
oidedly startling. Tho requirements are
almost ridiculously elementary—a cou
ple of books of Xenophon's "Anaba
sis," some qui to easy Latin, two books
of Euclid and so forth. Nevertheless, it
is stated that a large number of candi
dates for orders aro so grossly ignorant
that they have been unable to get
through this exceedingly easy ordeal.—

KHEDIVE OP EGYPT.
Mode of Life and Characteristics
of Abbas.
Hl« Tastes and Habits Are More i
Those Of is English Country
Gentleman Than of am Ori
ental Sovereign.
The life of his highness!« very differ
ent from that which in the western
world is usually associated with an
eastern sovereign. To begin with, the
khedive has received a splendid Euro
pean education. He learned English as
a child under tutors specially selected
and sent, to Cairo for his benefit and
that of his brother, Prince Mehemet.
When 12 years of age he entered the
celebrated Haxins school, at Geneva,
and afterward continued his scholastic
career at the Theresianum, at Vienna, .
from which he was called by the sud- |
den death of his father, Khedive !
Tewflk N to ascend the throne of Egypt !
at the age of 18, in 1892. At Vienna he t
was something of a favorite with the 1
Austrian emperor, who also saw that
the prince was given a military train
ing in addition to his ordinär}- school
work. Naturally highly intelligent, Ab
bas proved himself both industrious
and capable, lie ha» the gift of
tongues, and can talk In at least six
languages—English, French, German,
Italian, Turkish and Arabic, the lasrt
being in common use throughout
Egypt. Every official day of his life he
will most-probably converse in at least
four of these languages.
Ills» highness, says the London
Chronicle, has- a prodigious memory
and great capacity for mastering de
tail. He is- a hard worker, and every
moment of his time is parcelled out
with exactness. He usually rise» at
5:»i) in the morning, and then goes out
riding, an exercise of which he is pas
sionately fond, till about eight, when
he has breakfast. Soon afterward he
is busily engaged in state affairs with
his secretaries and ministers, and this
fills' up the forenoon till luncheon; but,
that meal over, he is at work again
with his staff until his public reception
hour comes around, when he meets all
those who have the right to call upon
him and a good number who haven't.
In t.he evening there are dinners, balls,
receptions, tbe opera and the theater.
All this gives one the impression, a per
fectly correct one, that Abbas is-no lan
guid oriental, but a prince of high abil
ity and remarkable energy.
Xor is he less interesting from the
purely domestic point of view. As a
sovereign he has» to be a great deal at
the state palaces of Abdiii, at Cairo,
and llas-el-Tin, at Alexandria, the for
mer being the winter, the latter the
summer capital of Egypt, but he likes
nothing better than to leave these for
his moTe private palaces-of Ivoubbeh or
Montazah, his seaside place. Koubbeh
is some five miles from Cairo, and here
his highness lives after much the same
fashion as might a great English land
owner of the most- modern type. He
keeps a splendid stud, and his-beautiful
horses, English bred as well as Arabs,
are hi» special pride. On the estate it
self he has brought into use tho latest
things in American agricultural ma
chinery, and he takes-an active part in
the supervision of his-numerous farms
and cotton plantations in the Nile val
ley—from which, indeed, he derives the
larger part of his vast private wealth.
His official income is £ 100,000 a year,
and an equal amount 1» paid to the
other members of the Khédivial family.
Besides his pronounced taste for 1he
life of a country gentleman. Abbas has
a taste, or rather a passion, which is
not. generally shared by country gen
tlemen. He is a skilled musician, and is
devoted to music. He keeps a private
band of aboiit 50 performers, who find
in him a generous patron but a relent
less critic. Woe betide the man who
makes a false note!
His- highness is- a strict Mahometan,
and -as such eschews both wines ant:
spirits.
ther. for in a country where everybody
smokes he will have n-othing to do with
the fragrant weed. Like his father
he is a monogamist, although his re
ligion allows him four wives—if he
wants them. He is known to be great
ly attached to his consort, who was
a Circassian lady of the khédivial
household before her marriage. They
have several daughters and one sou,
the heir apparent, who was born in
February of last year. By a special
decree of the sultan, who is still suzer
ain of Egypt, the khediviate de
scends directly from father to son in
the western manner. The domestic
entourage of the khedive is presided
over by the dowager khedivah, or
khedivah mere, as the princess i*
cnlled. This is in accordance witl
usual oriental custom, which accord.
precedence to a man's mother over
his wife.

question to most of them: "Did you,
in your extensive practice, ever know

With two exceptions, it seems, they
answered "No." One of these excep

said he had seen one case. The other
was Sir Robert Christison, who had
seen one case, that of a girl of bad

Oflleer.
Among the assembled officer» at k

very pompous, self-opipjonated major,
whose rank commanded for him a re
spectful hearing, but whose habit of ia
structing his brethren in matters mili
tary, both in ana out of season, made,
him rather unpopular. Win-ion
Churchill and the major sat side by nde.
at the table, and the martini polen
ta,te voiced hisi opinions, in the usual
manner. Churchill bore the infliction
dumbly for a season; then, taking da
vantage of a pause, when the major
wanted to take a breath, he said, verj
complacently and irrelevantly : "Do
you know, major, 1 met a man this
morning who wostld gladly forfeit f .Vi
for the pleasure, of kicking you.*'
"Kicking me, air!" roared the angry
major; "kicking me! I must ask you
to mention his name immediately!"
"But the fact is, major, I am not -i-re
that 1 ought to tell you." repdi d
Churchill, with well-assumed caution.
"But 1 insist on knowing hi» ».tun- sit
