Swallowed His Teeth. The Fresno Expositor tells that M. S. Thompson, ten years ago, got a set of false teeth, mounted on a gold base. A short time afterwards he lost his teeth, and he supposed they had been stolen by an 1 udian boy in his employ, as he had been in tlie habit,of taking theiu from his mouth at night and placing them on a table in a glass of water. The Indian boy strenuously denied the theft, but this did not in the least remove the suspicion. After time all thought of the false teeth passed away, lie having scoured an other set. About three years ago Thompson caught a severe cold, and from that time forward he was troubled with incessant pain in his right breast in the region of the lung. This was atteuded with a severe cough and fre quent hemorrhages of the lungs oc curred. He thought he had consump tion and for years has been under med ical treatment, without relief. During the early part of last Fall he was seized with a violent lit of coughing and during its progress coughed up several pieces of hard substance,which appeared like bone on first examina tion. He experienced some relief.at this, and during the next day he coughed up more of the same species of material. From curiosity he exam ineti this closely, and In doing so dis covered pieces of metal attached to the bony matter, which though worn and decayed, looked like teeth. The truth suddenly dawned upon him. lie had gone to sleep with the false teeth in his mouth and in the night he swal lowed them and they had passed into his lungs and had lain there these many years. In the course of the week he coughed, up the gold plate, in pieces, and the rest of the teeth. He rapidly regained his health and strength, and is now as hearty and robust as he ever was. You are not compelled to believe this story, if you don't want to. "Say Amen to that, Brother." In New Jersey some years ago there traveled over some of the hardest counties a good, faithful, hard-working brother nametl James Moore, or as he was familiarly called, Jimmy Moore. "He was devoted to itinerancy. A true, loyal Methodist—plain, pointed and sharp in all his preachings and exhor tations. He had been laboring for a year in one of his circuits, and before leaving for his new field he gave his people, who dearly loved him, his farewell sermon, and at its close he said: "My dear brethren, this is my last address to you. lam going from you; you may never hear the voice of James Moore again!" "Amen!" came loudly from the seat before him. He looked at the man, a little sur prised, but, thinking it a mistake, he weut on: "My days on earth will soon be numbered. I am an old man, and you may not only never hear the voice of James Moore, hut may never see his face again." "Amen!" was shouted from the same seat, more vigorously than be fore. Tlicjo no nilMahiiiu tLo design now. The preacher looked at the man; he knew him to be a hard grind ing man, stingy and merciless to the poor. He continued his address: 14 May the Lord bless all of you who have done your duty; who have hon ored him with your substances; who have been kind to the poor, and," pausing and looking the intruder in the eye, and pointing to him with his finger, "may His curse rest on those who have cheated the Lord and ground the poor under his heels. Say amen to that, brother." The" shot told. He was not inter rupted again. Narrow Escape. As a young man was driving two horses before a wagon in Toledo the other day, he chanced to cross a rail road track just as a concealed train was coming on at a terrific speed. There was a sudden collision and a scattering of debris. One horse was instantly killed, cut in two and thrown from the track. The other horse was also killed, but was carried several rods by the locomotive. The driver was struck on the back by the flag start on the engine, which was broken by the blow, and he was thrown to a distance of twenty-five or thirty feet, but escaped with only a severe "bruise upon the shoulder and some slight hurts upon various parts of the body. His cap was found hanging upon the locomotive, and It is wonderful how he escaped instant death. It has been stated that each young lady at Vassar College consumed 2,500 griddle cakes every morning. This is false. The students en masse eat that number daily. This gives an average of six and one-fourth cakes to each girl, or, say forty-four per week, 1,3(54 per month, or 2,288 per annum. The course of study lasting four years, the Vassarian thus gets away with the startling number of 9,152 griddlecakes while completing her education. — Boston Globe. , . -r- v — *-r*- Hite's wagon road is now being pushed forward to completion. About 40 forty men are engaged on the work. From the present terminus, at what is known as Hite's storehouse, to his suspension wire bridge across the South fork of the Merced river, a dis tance of about two miles, is yet to be built, and when hnished the the road way from Mariposa, a distance of about twenty-two miles, will be com plete. In Alameda county, some 24 miles Houth of Oakland, there, are 400 acres of land devoted to salt making. In Wintorthe salt water is let in and in June it is goue into the clouds, leaving the salt behind. The annual yield is 7,000 tons and the table salt there made brings $10 per ton, while the cost of making it is $« a ton. Forty men are employed in the business on these 400 acres. " The State Grange, witli other mem bers of the Patrons of Husbandry, is preparing to build a large grain depot at Antioch to meet the demands for the coming season from the San Joa quin valley. The Grangers of Anti och and Point of Timber own property to the value of $20,000 on the Antioch water-front, comprising a wharf at which two ships may be accommo dated at once. A. Gv Black, of the Yosemite valley, will re-open his hotel during the com ing season. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. Mill REPOKT. San Francisco, Mnrcli 11. Oold,ll2?».
