He was also a passenger on the train which killed so many horses Saturday night and was considerably shaken up by the jolting of the train. No one on board was injured, he says, but it simply was a miracle how the train remained on the track. MEETING POSTPONED. Owing to the inclemency of the weather and the variable and irreg ular service of the railroads during the cold spell, the meeting of the ex ecutive committee of the Slope De velopment league to have been held Wednesday evening in the Commer cial club rooms, was postponed. C. L. Timmerman, one of the committee, was unable to be here, and several of the local members were inclined to pass the matter up until a full board could bo present. PLEADS GUILTY. J. W. Salsbury, who was arrested yesterday for assault and battery on the person of his wife, was permit ted to come into police court this af ternoon and plead guilty to the charge. On recommendation of State's Attorney Smith the minimum sentence was imposed—that of two days in the county jail at hard lab or and costs of the case. Also as an additional fine which would work a little more hardship on the prison er the court instructed the bailiff to see that during the two days impris onment, Mr. Salsbury should labor hard, and have nothing more for sustenance than bread and water. The costs in the case amounted to •i6.25 which will be paid. A feature of the trial was giving the prisoner a lecture on his ac tions, Judge Casselman said. "If it were in my power, and if I could get a law passed to that effect. I would give you 100 stripes upon the bare back, for any man who will fall so low as to beat his wife deserves be ing put to the whipping post." WATCH YOUR HAIR, LADIES Eternal Vigilance is the Price of Luxuriant and Radiant Hair. If dandruff germs are devouring the nourishment that belongs to the hair it will soon begin to fall, furthermore it will lose its life and lustre and will become dull, faded and even look slovenly.

The tiny tip of white metal aeen on the under side ot the point of a gold pen may be of platinum, but it is more likely to be iridium. Iridium is a very bard metal, and It is expensive. It costs about four times as much as gold. Tbe purpose ot the iridium tip Is. of fourse, to give the pen a more durable point Tbe gold pen maker buys his gold at the assay office in bars of pure 24 carat gold, wbicb be melts and alloys with silver and copper to the degree of fine ness required. Gold ot 14 carats is used in tbe manufacture of tbe best American gold pens, that being the de gree of fineness deemed most suitable for pen use, but good pens made in this country for sale in France are made of 18 carats, the French govern ment requiring that all articles exposed for sale in that country as made of gold shall be of not less than 18 car ats. The gold from which the pens are to be made is rolled and rerolled until what was originally a thick, heavy bar of gold has been rolled into a thin gold ribbon about three feet in length by four inches wide. Then this gold rib bon is put into a machine which stamps out of it pen shapes, all still tint. Then on tbe top of each of these pen shapes is fused the iridium point, and then the shapes go to a slitting machine, which cuts the silt in the pen. From the slitting machine tbe pens go through another, which gives them their rounded, familiar pen form, and then the pens are ground and pol ished and finished ready for use. American gold pens in fountain pens or as dip pens are sold in every coun try In Europe in competition with pens of British or of German manufacture, and under the same competition they are sold throughout the world in South America. Africa, Japan, China, wher ever pens are used.—New York Sun. SILENT MEN. Wallenstein, Who Nevar Smiled, Was the Moet Dramatio of All. Washington's reserve made him stiff, formal and ill at ease in compa ny, but it also prevented bis plans from being betrayed to the enemy and the country from being deceived by his promises. William the Silent was frugal ot words, because a reserve that conceal ed his designs, even from those acting with him, was necessary to the inde pendence of the Netherlands. The most dramatic of silent men was Wallenstein. tbe antagonist of Gnstavos Adolpbus and toe comman der of the emperor's armies in the Thirty Tears' war. He insisted that tbe deepest silence should reign around film. His officers took care that no loud conversation should disturb their general. They knew a chamberlain bad been hanged for waking him with out orders, and an officer who would wear clanking spurs Is the command er's presence had been secretly put to death. In the rooms of Wallenstein's palace the servants glided as If phan toms, and a dozen sentinels moved around his tent charged to secure the silence tbe general demanded. Chains were stretched across tbe streets and roads in order to guard him against the disturbance of sounds. Wallen stein's taciturnity and love of silence that caused bim to be irritated at the slightest noise was due to his consti tutional temperament. He never smiled, he never asked advice from any one, and be could not endure to be gazed at, even when giving an or der. Tbe soldiers when be crossed the camp pretended not to see him, knowing that a serious look would bring them punishment—Exchange. Concrete Stays Put. As concrete gets older it becomes harder and more durable—that is, of course, if the concrete Is properly made. The usual means of wrecking a bouse have not the slightest effect on concrete. Tbe sledgehammer, the drill and dynamite must be used. Adds might be used to disintegrate the concrete, but the expense would be enormous. Tbe only thing to do Is to loosen tbe material with explosives and then break It free from the steel re-enforcement with sledgehammers, and that is a long, tedious job.—Boston Advertiser. Durability of Steel. Nearly all tbe failures of steel occur very early in its history. A bar or a plate of steel that lasts a year In serv ice may be regarded as perfectly dura ble. Continual bending backward and forward, ns In what is called "panting" a boiler's end. is tbe most trying for steel which, according to an expert. Is "tumultuous In youth, trustworthy in middle age and beyond reproach in old age." The Running Gear, "Ton say you have a new musical comedy?" nsks the manager. "Have you a scenario of it?" "Yes.

BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE A HUMANJNI6MA The Count of St. Germain, a Fa mous Old World Impostor. CLAIMED TO BE IMMORTAL He Dazzled the Court of Louis XV. and Said He Had Lived 2,000 Years and Had Concocted an Elixir That Would Keep Him Young and Alive Forever. One of the greatest impostors in tbe annals of France and tbut the court of any nation has had to deal with was the Count of St. Germain, whose life is written down as one long mystery and tastes much more of fiction than of fact in its relating. Who he was no one knows nor where be came from nor what finally became of him. He suddenly appeared at tbe French court of Louis XV. in 1748. He had an af fable and convincing way about Uim and succeeded in winning friends. Just who introduced him or bow this hand some, brilliant stranger came to be in troduced into tbe court circle is a mys tery It was at the period when the most rigorous etiquette was maintain ed and ancestry counted for much and every title of nobility had to be thor oughly authenticated before it was ac cepted. No one knew St Germain nor had ever heard of him when be made his debut at tbe French court, altbougb be spread the report that he was 2,000 years old and was able to convince many of the more susceptible into be lieving it He bad no records to show that he was entitled to the name of count be bad no visible means of sup port and yet be took up splendid quar ters in Paris and lived at an extrava gant rate. Tbe French court bad bad some experience with adventurers and were more or less suspicious but, in spite of the fact that they knew noth ing about him, St. Germain was receiv ed with open arms and tbe king made him his boon companion. Mme. de Pompadour, tbe reigning beauty of tbe court, consulted bim freely on affairs of state and society. So powerful did be become that dukes and ambassa dors were among bis closest friends and bitterest foes. Finally St. Germain's claim to im mortality became the general discus sion among all wbo knew bim or had beard of bim. He claimed that be would never die. for had be not al ready lived 2,000 years, and natural ly be was pointed out as tbe wonder of tbe age. He spoke every language then known and one as fluently as tbe other. He had a positive genius for chemistry and astounded the world by discoveries be made—or pretended to have made—along this line. The most monumental of all bis fakes was tbe story be told of bow, having been born close to 300 years before Christ, he had found age creeping up and deter mined, through bis skill in chemistry, to concoct the liquor that would keep him always alive and young. The man's perfect and intimate knowledge of all history led many people to be lieve this wild statement. He would relate personal narratives of Nero. Dante. Francis 1. and other notables of former centuries. St. Germain also claimed to possess a secret of turning baser metals into gold and of making precious stones His untraced wealth and tbe fact that tie fairly blazed witb diamonds lent credence to bis stories. He was so clever in tbe workings of bis fakes as not to be detected, and be was never proved to be a swindler, a gambler or a spy, tbougb be was charged witb be ing all three. He was about fifty years old at the time of his appearance at tbe French court He carried everything before bim while be remained there, but he was restless and finally drifted from court to court and later is credited with having become the boon com pnnion of the Landgrave, Charles of Hesse, and Is reported to have died in Scbleswig-Holstein in 1780. But did be die or is be still living? Naturally be Is not alive, but no one ever knew what became of bim. Gros ley. an eminent scientist and fellow of tbe Royal society, believed be saw St Germain in a French prison during the reign of terror in 1794. Lord Lytton in 1860 met a man who seemed the em bodiment of tbe old count Van Damme writes of a mysterious "ma Jor" who was in the court of Louis Na poleon In 1855, who was of no known nationality, of undiscovered origin and with plenty of money from a source none could lenrn. A man must have possessed excep tional ability as a faker and must bave bad tbe trick down to an art tc nave fooled sucb intelligent men ns Andrew Lang. Lord Lytton. Grosle.r and many others, and for that reason he mast be put down as one of tbe most monumental fakes of history. Philadelphia Press. The French Monarchy. History concedes that Clovis I. was tbe real founder of the French mon archy. altbougb bis father, Cbilderic. held some sort of tribal rule over part of the country which was destined to become France. Clovis was a progtes sive king and vastly extended his do mains during the period of his n-.!.'. from 481 to 511. He made endlevs war on surrounding tribes and txu territory right and left h.v -«n]iiest. In 493 Clovis took Paris by storm, and thereupon that city became in permanent seat of the French govern ment There Is only one real failure in im possible, and that is not to be true i» t»e test «ie li-H'.'wa SCHUTLER'S TOY CANAL Made the Principle of Looks Clear t» the Ojutchmen. It la not known wbo first conceived the magnificent Idea of connecting by a canal Lake Erie witb the Atlantic ocean. Experiments to Improve the navigation of the Mohawk by means of small canals and locks had been tried years before Oe Witt Clinton fcuilt the Erie canal. The purpose, which was to connect Lake Ontario through the Mohawk with tbe Hudson, met witb a formidable obstacle at Lit tle falls, where the river descended for a mile or two over a series of rapids. General Philip Schuyler of Revolu tionary fame bad planned a series of locks to overcome this descent of tbe river. Knowing that tbe success of the project would depend upon tbe fa vor witb which the Dutch farmers, settled near the river, received it he visited them. Calling a meeting at a tavern, he unfolded his plan. The old Dutchmen loved and honored Schuyler, for he was tbe head of an old Dutch family. They were delighted witb the prospect of the commerce of tbe state sailing past their farms, but they could not comprehend how boats could ascend Little falls. The general by means of drawings explained the principle of locks. It was in vain. The stolid Dutchmen shook their beads, saying that they did hot believe a word of it Water would lot run uphill, and it was useless for the general to endeavor to make them believe that it would. The general went to bed mortified at bis failure. Turning over the thing in his mind, a happy thought suggest ed itself. He arose, lighted a candle, took a knife and a few shingles and went into the tavern yard. Digging a miniature canal of two different levels, he connected them by a lock of shin gles. Then he summoned tbe Dutch men, who came grumbling at being aroused from their slumbers. Pouring water from a pall into tbe little canal, he locked a chip through from the low er to the upper level. "Veil, general, dot beats eferythlng!" exclaimed the astonished Dutchmen. "Now ve understands und ve goes mlt you unt your canall"—New York Press. HIDDEN HOARDS. Fortunes Buried or Tucked Away In Waataful Neglect. None can estimate the wealth hid den in the days of the war between tbe states. Down mountain slopes, across the great plantations and along the streets of cities of the south are trails of lost fortunes. On tbe Missis sippi river the shanty boaters tell tales of kettles of gold coin and money that were burled in the brakes or revealed in tbe caving bank of the Mississippi by a cascade of coin rushing down the crumbling slope into the flood. Now and then some sharp darky appears witb a handful of old gold. A mathematician might estimate the quantity of nugget gold bidden by the placer miners, the loggers, tinkers, tramps, soldiers—all the kinds of for tunes tbat are tucked away in useless and wasteful neglect in all parts of the country—In stockings, mattresses, old clothes, garrets, cellars, hollow trees, hovels, mansions, caches of des peradoes and hidings of foreigners. If only one in 10,000 hides $100 that is never found, and in every village and town the proportion is larger, among farmers and back country people much larger, the loss will amount to $900, 000. The chances are that there is a hundred million dollars of hidden for tunes in this country now—gold, sil ver, precious stones and paper wealth.

In medieval times falconry was ex ceedingly popular. To be seen with a hawk upon the wrist was the seal of a gentleman, and his rank was also known by the species of hawk he was using—for a king the ger-falcon. for a prince the falcon-gentle, for a duke the falcon of the rock, the peregrine fal con for an earl, for a lady the merlin, the nobby for a young man, the gos hawk for the yeoman and for the serv ing man the kestrel. Had to Swallow Many Things. An amusing anecdote is related of the late Hungarian statesman Tisaa. who when one day dining at the Hof burg witb the Austrian emperor placed large pear upou his plate at dessert Tbe emperor remarked to his minis 'ter that cold fruit after a hot dinner was injurious to the digestion. Tisza replied. "The stomach of a Hungarian premier, your majesty, is obliged to be a strong one." Changed Plans. A Chicago banker was dictating a fetter to bis stenographer.
