S£0W S Much of the Frivoious Stuff by
HIDDEN TREASURE.
Ancient Church That Is Said to
Guard a Precious 8ecret
A small building popularly known as
"The Church of Hidden Treasure"
stands in the little, town of Barelas.
N. M. During the Mexican war many
of the richest families In the neighbor
hood hid their gold and valuables tn
all sorts of carious places.
Senor Sandoval, a very rich landown
er, chose the thick walls of the village
church as bis* treasure vault, accord
ing to a writer In the Wide World, and
tradition says that the precious hoard
has never been removed.
Only a few years ago several groups
of men, armed with pickaxes, crowbars
and other Implements, besieged the
place in search of the fabulous wealth
said to be concealed somewhere on the
premises. The treasure is believed to
be contained In a large wooden chest,
such as most of the wealthy Mexicans
formerly possessed. It Is claimed that
the box contained thousands of dollars
In gold, besides emeralds, diamonds
and pearls, set In pure native gold.
The Sandoval family, however, guard
the place most carefully, while they In
torn are Jealously watched to sea that
they do not disturb the church prop
erty. Bold and daring plans are some
times laid, but nothing seems to come
of them, and the ancient building still
guards Its precious secret
CHEMICALS IN WOOD.
Why Timber Cut In Winter Is Better
Than That Cut In Summer.
Timber cut In spring and In summer
la not so durable as that cat In winter.
She durability depends not only upon
the greater or less density, bat also
apon the presence of certain chemical
constituents In the wood.
Thus a large proportion of resinous
matter increases the durability, while
the presence of easily soluble carbohy
drates diminishes it considerably.
During the growing season the wood
of trees contains Sulphuric add and
potassium, both of which are solvents
of carbohydrates, starch, resins and
gams. They are known to soften also
the ligneous tissue to a considerable
degree.
Daring the summer months the wood
of living trees contains eight times as
much sulphuric acid and five times as
much potassium as It does daring the
winter months.. The presence of these
two chemical substances daring the
growing season constitutes the chief
factor In dissolving the natural preserv
stives within the wood and In prepar
ing the wood for the different kinds
of wood destroying fungi-Scientific
Amerlcsn.
An Age of Great Gamblers.
The eighteenth century was the age
of the great gamblers. On Feb. 6.
1772, there was debate In the house
of commons on the thirty-nine arti
cles, and it was noticed that Fox spoke
very Indifferently.
Horace Waipole suggests an explans
tlon: "He had sat up playing at hazard
st Almack's from Tuesday evening, the
4th. till 5 In the afternoon of Wednes
day. 5th. An hour before he had recov
ered £12.000 that hi bid lost, and by
dinner, which was at 5 o'clock, he had
ended losing £11.000. On the Thursday
he spoke In the above debate, went to
dinner at 11-30 at night, from there to
White's, when be drink till 7 the next
morning thence to Almack's, where be
won £6,000. and between 3 and 4 lot he'
afternoon be set out for Newmarket

Odd Origin ef an Epidemic.

One of them Informed his companion
that the last time he was In the town
he suffered from smallpox In that very
room. *Tn that corner." be said, "was
a cupboard where the bandages were
kept It is now plastered over, but
tbey are probably still there." And be
took a poker, broke down the plaster
and found them. From their "find" the
two men contracted the disease, and It
spread through the town and worked
fearful havoc.—London Telegraph.

St. Henry Will Fly June 1.
Great enthusiasm 1B evinced in this
community over the announcement
by the Missouri Slope Fair Associa
ton that, under their auspic.es, Lucky
Bob St. Henry will give an exhibition
of modern aviation at the fair grounds
June 1. Bob will fly in his brand
new 90-horse power two {passenger
C'urtiss by-plane, one of the finest fly*
ers known to aviators. The proceeds
of this great entertainment feature
will go to build a much needed new
horse barn for the fair grounds.
F. L. Watklns Will Speak Here
F. L. Watkins, of Bismarck, former
ly a Presbyterian paBtor in Dickinson,
now superintendent of the state en
forcement league, will speak at the
First Presbyterian church In this city
at both the morning and evening ser
vices Sunday. As the Interior as well
as the exterior of the Methodist
church is being overhauled, renovated
and repainted, and it will be impos
sible to hold services there Sunday,
the two denominations will unite in
hearing the message of this well
known speaker at the Presbyterian
church. His talk will probably be
along thel Ines of Dr. McCurdy's re
cent sermon, on moral cleansing
of the city. Mr. Watklns will address
an audience of men only at the com
mercial club rooms at three p.m. Sun
day, and the pastors of the city urge
all men to be in attendance.
Baseball Fans To Meet
"Get your graft in now or hold your
peace forever after," is waht the more
deeply interested fans of the city are
saying to the less interested ones in
urging them to attend a meeting of
all lovers of the great American sport
at the Commercial club roome to
morrow evening. There has already
been a meeting of enthusiasts, but
the steps they took did not seem en
tirely satisfactory to everyone, so this
meeting has been called for the pur
pose of giving all an opportunity to
express their views as to what shall
be done in the way of organizing a
etam for Mandan. All who are at
all interested are urged to attend and
help solve the problem of a first class,
inexpensive team for the cityp.

Easy Waiting.
A newspaper woman, a spinster,
went to interview a member of one of
the leading firms In Boston and was
told to wait five minutes for him to
be at liberty. Three-quarters of ah
hour later he came hurrying toward
her with. "Well. Miss W.. I would
never wait so long as this for any
man!" "Ob. Mr. Cole," she retorted. I

The French called a man who shears
