Indeed, we had not the slightest suspicion that a hu man being was present in the whole Culapugos archipelago, except on Chatham island; consequently we were surprised at the discovery of n solitary man a veritable Kobinson Crusoe. "Pedro Guaza told his story. It was then something more than a year since he came from Chatham island with a party of orchilla pickers, and saw from Jay to day the deserted plantation, with its wealth of fruit, horses, cattle, mules, donkeys, goats mid swine.

"Guaza displayed good judgment providing for his comfort and safety He established himself in a small house near a spring of water at an elevation of about 500 feet above the sea, two miles from the landing place and an equal distance from the de ter ted plantation. It commanded wide view, and all the animals within miles on every side came to the spring for water. "His weapons were a strong knife and an ax. He constructed a blind over the spring, and, by lashing his knife to a pole, succeeding in spear ing goats and pigs in plenty. He was compelled at first to bring his frui from the plantation, but he soon made a lasso of goatskin and capture1 a couple of donkeys, which he trained as saddle and pack animals, and thenceforth rode to and from the es tate with proper dignity. "The wardrobe of Guaza became limited. He remedied this difficulty by simply disrobing. He stowed hi one aad only suit away, substituting for it the dressed skins of goats. The modern luxury of matches was be yond his reach, and he procured fire by the time-honored method of run bing two sticks together. "For awhile Guaza kept the record of time by marking the days on stick, a large mark for Sunday; but. with his increasing prosperity, he be came careless, soon losing all run of time; and, as the effect of utter lone liuess increased, he imagined every day a week, the weeks months, the months years. The first questions he asked were: 'What year is it? What month?' " Capt. Tanner said that Floriana is land was formerly a convict settle ment. as is Chatham island now. In the '70s the convicts rose in rebellion and killed their keepers. Seizing two schooners, they escaped by putting to sea, and have never been heard of since. The plantation buildings crumbled Into ruins. The fields became a wild erness. The fruit trees, although bearing heavily, were wild. Flocks and herds roamed at will. Wild dogs, made savage by hunger, preyed on the young and thus prevented the over population of animal life. This condition had existed for two decades when Pedro Guaza became reigning sovereign. The buildings, stained with blood from the convicts' crime of 20 years before, had decayed Vaadevllle Darin- Lii-b Time, There is a prospect that Currier's restaurant, on Fulton street, iiew York, may be converted into a play house, where continuous Taudevllle will hold forth.

AN UMBRELLA TENT. How a. Modern Inventor fins Madt Practical lee oi the Old Indian Tepee Idea. M An Indian tepee, with its lodge pole in the course of its evolution in passing through the hands of a modern inven tion, has become transformed into an umbrella tent. The main original fea tures are all there; the central pole the supporting side poles, and the can vaB cover. There is this difference. however, that the modern inventor'i tent folds up conveniently when cam . ... NEW UMBRELLA TENT. (An Old Indian Idea Utilized by an Up-tA Date inventor.) is to be struck, while the Indian's and even the modern army tent are not nearly so conveniently set up and taken down. Duncan Downs, of West Su perior, whose unique feat is illustrated by the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune. conceived the idea of building a tent for hunters, campers or army use, ex actly on the plan of a huge umbrella. Two sliding collars, controlled by ropes and pulleys, serve to open and close the tent. The upper collar is ad justable at any point to permit chang ing the height of the tent as desired; the lower collar controls the extension of the ribs. This tent when folded, shut up or closed ready for transportation, consists simply of the central stick with the canvas rolled about it. in true umbrella fashion. DIES OF GRIEF. Uvea Kin Political Opponents De-i-rllr Him an H mini riot with Ibr I-:arniarka of a Slalea ninn A lllble Student. There are those who class Champ Clurk. of Missouri, among the humor ists of congress. There are others who say lie combines with a sense of humor certain statesmanlike quulities which ought to give him a high position us a leuiler in the house. Clurk himself is a good deul of a philosopher, and aspires to neither distinction us a leader nor fame as a w it. He is contented, uppus; ently. to remain one of the most en tertaining and interesting members of the lower branch of congress. When Clark first entered the house, in the Fifty-third congress, he wus a great deal in evidence. He attracted atten tion by his originality and a flambpy tint style of orutory that kept the older men in smiles or gasping with aston ishment. He was one of those of whom it was useless to make predictions, and he thrust himself upon the notice of the house on iill sorts of occasions until it began to be a question wnetner he was to be taken at all seriously or not. Then he wus defeated for reelection, and this seemed to have a sobering ef fect upon him. He has said t hat if lie were to live a hundred yenrs he would never recover from the disappointment of that defeat, the discomfiture was so severe. I he man who beat mm was a niiisic-teacher, who was nominated in a tidal-wave year with no expectation of election, and who, after he got tli rough congress, never rose above me diocrity. When Champ Clark came back to the Fifty-fifth congress he was a different sort of a fellow, says the Washington Star. He had broadened and mellowed and had ideas on a good many subjects that commanded respect both from po litical friends and opponents. For one thing he was a great ad mirer of Tom Heed, and never hesitated MODERN ARMY BALLOONS. Mads ol the Intestines of Oxen Which M ill Bold (ins Far Better Thau y Vl Oiled silk. .

A double af fliction wus imposed upon Mr. and Mrs. Clohecy within 48 hours, t nday after noon their eldest daughter. Xeilie, aged 13 years, died after a short illness. The shock to the parents was terrible, but to her little sister Susan it was worse. The two had been inseparable compan ions, lhey were wrapped up in eacn other, and the death of Nellie broke Susan's heart. "Oh, mamma." she cried. "I want to go to Heaven with Pi elite. The parents tried to comfort the child, but their efforts were fruitless. The little one continued to grieve, and in less than 48 hours she passed away. Her last words were that she w as going to see her sister. A double funeral was held. - ' HON. CHAMP CLARK. (Considered One of the Wits of the House of Kepresentativea.) to express admiration for him, even in compnnies und under conditions w here it was not to his personal advantage to do so. He w as fascinated with Heed's force, originality and wit, and espe cially by the classic virility of his speech. Champ Clark professes to be a judge of congressional oratory, and he has said more than once that in his judgment Tom Heed is the best short speechmaker in thq United States. At times Clark tried to'pattern his own style of oartory on that of the former speaker. He is one of the men who muke a practice of studying the Bible purely for literary purposes, and be cause he knows that nothing is more effective with a popular audience than Scripture quotations or' language which carries the Biblical mark. When in the heat of debate he never spares language or hesitates for an epithet.' Champ Clark tells in an interesting way how it happened that he came to be such a student of the Bible. His father was a deeply religious man, but Chump, as a boy, would have nothing to do w ith that sort of thing. One day, however, he happened to run across Patrick Henry's oration in the house of burgesses, beginning: "It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope." One sentence In the speech es pecially struck the youthful fancy: "Ihe race is not always to the swift nor the battle to the strong." He told his father how much he liked the speech and how much he was im pressed w ith that sentence. His father took li im down by remarking: "King Solomon wrote that sentence, and if you will read the Bible you will find a great many others equally good." So just from curiosity, Champ began to rend the Bible, and has kept it up ever since. Chump Clark is SO years of age. He was born March 7, 1850, and he looks vounger than his years. He has smoothly shaven face beaming with good humor. He is one of the most companionable men in the house. MODERN ARMT BALLOON. (How It Is Inflated and Released in Time of Actual War.) ner it is said that no less than 75.00C head of cattle are needed. TheballooD costs about $5,000. One great advantage of this material is that it holds the gas better than oil silk does. Heretofore the aeronaut has been greatly bothered by the leak age of his gas tu such an extent that u charge could be relied upon only a day or two, or at best only two or thret days, without a considerable addition to it. But it is said that a well-made balloon of the modern style will kcej its charge for a month or more with out sensitive diminution. Moreover if an enemy's shot should puncture thf balloon while aloft the wounds will close and the leakage w ill be small. A severe fire is necessary to disable tht thing. The gas for inflating an army bal loon is compressed into cans or tanks and thus carried ready made by w agon to the field. When one of these cans, oi cylinders, has been carefully tested and then filled it will hold its content: for years. A wagon load of cylinder! may then be hauled to the scene of ae t ion and the empty bag filled on short notice. When employed in scouting service a balloon is held captive by c wire rope that is wound und unwound from a windlass. There is a separate wire from the basket to the ground foi telephonic or telegraphic purposes, sc that the signal officers in the balloor can communicate their observations tc headquarters promptly. - m iiii.ui. with Ensrlaad.

An interesting legal controversy, in volving the right of the school authori ties of Nebraska to enforce a rule pro viding for the reading of the Bible in the schools, has come before the su preme court at Lincoln for adjudica tion. Daniel Freeman is a wealthy farmer residing in Gage county. His children attend public schools, at which a Bible- reading service is a daily Institution. Freeman states that he is not a mem ber of any church, nor does he believe in the efficacy of prayer, song, or read ing the Scriptures. He asks the school trustees to stop these exercises, but the members refuse to comply with his request. His next step was to ask the courts for an injunction. In this he was defeated, and he now appeals. An unfavorable decision will mean an expenditure to Mr. freeman of several hundred dollars for court costs aud attorneys' fees.

Upon his removal to Anderson Mr. Durbin entered the banking business and the arena of politics at the same time, and ha been very successful in both. In 1839 he became a member of the state com mitteeand in 1890 a member of the na tional committee. During the war with Spain he was appointed colonel of the One Hundred and Sixty-first Indiana infantry. In the civil war he served with two different regiments of volunteers.

The feeling against coeducation at the University of Pennsylvania has been steadily growing with the increase in the number of women students until now the matter has come to a head, and the senior class of the college depart ment has taken the initiative against the "coeds." At a mess meeting of that class held the other day in College hall resolutions were adopted which excluded' from the class record all mention of women stu dents. A committee from the class was appointed to confer with other com mittees from the junior, sophomore and freshmen classes concerning the best methods of opposing coeducation. This action has aroused the whole university. It is believed by the more conservative of the male students of the university that a great mistake has been made, and that such an agitation at this time! and In such away, is not bnly out of place, but is unjustifiable.'
