From tbe page of memory, "Time's indefatigable fingers write men's actions of their souls In lines which not himself can blot." When I came to Yankee Settlement (now Edgewood) July 4, 1847, there were about fifteen families from Jona than Noble's to Edwin Steele's. 1 arrived with Mrs. Bixby on Saturday and we were hospitably entertained at the home of Schuyler Peet. Sunday 1 was Invited to preach to the people. When I arrived at the place of the meeting, the people were engaged in Sunday School. Tbe build ing was used as a school house. It was made of hewn logB, with a puncheon iloor and shake roof. Tbe seats were made of logs spilt In halves and legs put in. A school was kept during the week days by Miss Charlotte Mulliken. I am told that the first permanent settlers were the late Daniel B. Noble and Lorenzo Mulliken. They came in 1842, and kept bachelors' hall till 1844, when Roderick Nelson Steele camejwith his family. Mrs. Steele, being the first was really the best woman in the settle ment. And she holds her goodness pretty well, though now at a good old age, and has been an invalid for a num ber of years. Lorenzo Mulliken died. Albert Noble went to Colesburg, a distance of ten or twelve miles through the woods, for Rev. Turner to preach the funeral sermon. The funeral was to be tbe same day. Mr. Turner was a new ar rival and said he did not know the way as there was no road. Albert said, "I will take your horse and leave mine for you, and my old black horse will fetch you through the woods all right." It was not long before others began to make their homeB here. Cornelius T. Feet was an early arrival, and soon Isaac Preston and Francis C. Madison. We had to send to Dubuque to mall our letters, even after I came, but soon there was a post office established here. Mrs. Daniel Noble was the agent, and if I mistake not Bohan Noble was the principal. I had tbe honor of carrying the mail to Colesburg one day, and re turning the next tla* After Schuyler Peet oame, they bad mM) Job That Oceapltd Impeooal ou Artlat About a Week. "I have Just finished shaving a dead man," Bald a local artist "The Job oc cupied me about a week and"— "Good heavens!" ejaculate a horrified friend, "what d'ye mean?" "Don't bo alarm ed," replied the artist calmly. "The operation waa not as repulsive as you may Imagine. In fact I performed It with a brush. You see, a certain family of my acquaintance have a large oil painting of the head of the house, who departed from this vale of tears some time In the early eighties. At the time tho portrait was made he wore a full beard, which was contrary to his usual custom, and the family, who remember him best with a smooth face, have been anxious ever since to get off the whiskers. I was engaged to shave the portrait, and hard times and approach ing rent day persuaded me to accept the commission, which, needless to say, was highly antipathetic to my artistic Instincts. "I had to depend entirely on the recol lection of the family for my data, and I found, to my alarm, that each mem ber had retained a different Impression of the old gentleman's chin. One claim ed It was double and another Insisted that It was sharp and clean cut a daughter described It as 'square and determined,' and the widow assured me privately that It was shaped like the prow of au armored cruiser. Alto gether I found myself In a deuce of a fix. It was no trouble to take off the whiskers I did that In three fell swoops but when 1 blocked out the Jaw experimentally and called in tbe crowd for suggestions, there was a grand chorus of protest. Strange to say, I pleased nobody, and I have been correcting, amending, remodeling and doing It all over agnln ever since. One point of dispute was tbe location of a wart which half the family said was on the left and half on the right I finally effected a compromise by paint ing In two warts, one ou each side. 1 got my foe all right, but before I take anotber tonsorlal job I'll go to driving a trolley car."—New Orleans Times Democrat Carious Paneral Custom.

All kinds of ebony are distinguished for their great density and dark color. The wood In all varieties ft heavier than water. The heaviest varieties are tbe darkest. The other grades require a considerable amount of staining to make them black. Ebony is of a uniform color through out and will not show any deteriora tion even from long continued use.

A Mexlcaa Gambler, Don Felipe Martel, the famous gam bling house proprietor of the City of Mexico, had made a fortune In the business before tbe government decid ed to abolish gambling bouses by levy ing on tbem a license tax of $1,000 a day. One by one the gambling houses closed, and when the field was clear Don Felipe Martel approached the au thorities with (1,000 In cash %nd de manded a day's license. In a few hours his place was thronged. At a single stroke he bad won the patronage of Mexico, and bis doors have never been closed since. The dally outlay of (1,000 Is not missed from the dally revenue of thousands. His strong re ligious tendencies are so well known that nobody was surprised when no built In the village of San Angel a church that cost more than (00,000. Tbe poor people of the vicinity, and many of the rich as well, have coine to regard blm as a sort of fairy prince. His own style of living encourages this belief. The Martel mansion In the City of Mexico is a magnificent affair, constantly filled with guests. A curi ous feature is that It contains 40 win dows—the number of cards In the Mex ican deck. WM Too Heavy to Carrf, There Is a story of an envious tailor current with the French peasantry. He fancied that his neighbor, who receiv ed a pension for the loss of an arm In curred while fighting for his country, was better off than himself. Both men went to pay their rent on the same day. "That's a lucky man," said tbe tailor to the landlord. "He gets well paid for bis arm." "But who would be willing to part wtth on arm, even If be were paid for ItT" said the landlord. 1 would," declared the tailor. "Tour* cried the landlord. "Why, man, you wouldn't be willing to bear anything of the sort, no matter how much you were paid for It" "I wish some one would try mew" "Now, see here," said tbe landlord. Who had studied human nature, "I'll tell you what. If you'll wear even so much as a chalk mark on your back IH remit your rent as long as you wear It on your coat so It can be seen, the condition being that you tell no one why It Is there." "Agreed," said the tailor eagerly. "That's an easy way to pay rent!" Enormous Pendnlams, The only structures In Japan which seem to be earthquake proof are ths pagodas, which are erected before the temples. There are many which are 700 or 800 years old and as solid as when first built There Is a reason for this and it lies In their construction. A pagoda Is prac tically a framework of heavy timbers, which starts from a wide base, and Is in Itself a substantial structure, but is rendered still more stable by a peculiar device. InBlde the framework and sus pended from tbe apex Is a long, heavy beam of timber two feet thick or more. This hangs from one end of the four sides four more heavy timbers, and If the pagoda be very lofty still more tim bers, are added to these. The whole forms an enormous pendulum, which reaches within six Inches of tha ground. When the shock of an earthquake rocks the pagoda, the pendulum swings In unison and keeps the center of grav ity always at the base of the frame work. Consequently the equilibrium of the pagoda Is never disturbed, and this Is the explanation of the great age of many of them, when from their height one would suppose them to be peculiar ly susceptible to the effects of the earthquake.

When a boy at school, the late III. Spurgeon took a prominent part In an swering all questions put to the class.
