tice be done in the premises. If the
charges made be true then tbe doctor ia
not a tit man for tbe responsible posi

LUCKY GOLD HUNTERS.
Oome of Those Who Struck It Rich In the
Victor Fields Wero Poor Men.
During tho period of first locations
among the rich mines at Victor thero
were incidents which form an interest
ing history concerning tho charaoter of
tho men and tho peculiar circumstances
under which they made thoir lucky
finds. All of them wore poor, and nearly
all havo quickly grown from poverty to
affluence, while many others now share
the benefits of their fortune. It is well
known that the two leading discoverers
were poor carpenters—W. S. Stratton,
the millionaire owner of the Independ
ence, and W. T. Shemwell, who found
the Elktou. Of all men known to pos
sess -wealth Mr. Stratton is ono of the
least pretentions, though ho realizes the
benefits and blossings of fortune and
says ho will enjoy tho uses of his money
to the end of making the balanoe of his
life pleasant. Shemwell, owning 100,
--000 shares in the Elkton, is over in
Honolulu with his family, having a
good time on an income of $ 1,000 per
It is woll known that Burns and
Doyle were also poor young men wbo
found tho rich Portland mine by the
usual chances of the prospector and for
some timo were unaware of their good
fortune. When thoy had reached a depth
of 18 feet in the process of development
work, John Human, another poor pros
pector, purchased a third interest in tho
claim for $300. After the purchase,
greatly to his joy and in one sense to
the discomfiture of tho locators, an essay
from tho oro gave returns of $20,000 in
gold to the ton. Immediately af .-er that
the partners shipped 10 small sacks that
netted them $1,900 cash. Since that
timo these men have grown wealthy,
and the group of mines belonging to the
Portland continues to grow in richness.
Many others in the district are now
going through tho first stages of such
experiences, und there are many moro
mountains and hills that will some day
be scarred and drilled and honeycombed
as Battle mountain appears to be today.

A JOCKEY'S INCOME.
A Small Boy's Big- Earnings Daring- th:
Year, Which Go For a Good Purpose.
A Email boy, with no particular edu
cation, who enn increase his income by
$12,000 in a single year, may claim to
be an oxception to the general run of
boys. This is what Jockey Griffin has
dono this year, and apparently ho has
uot placed his services above their mar
ket value. He was oomethingiu tho na
ture of a "find" last year, when Mr.
Gideon engaged him at a salary of $4,
--000 for a year's riding. During tho sea
son Griffin proved that Mr. Gideon's
judgment was oorrect, for he gained re
markable proniiucnco among the
jockeys. When it came timo to talk
about this season's work, it was found
that Griffin had been approached by a
number of owners, and that Mr. Loril
lard had offered him $15,000 to rido for
his stable nest year. Ho was re-engaged
by Gideon & Daly for $10,000 for tho
coming season, an increase of exactly
$12,000 over his salary foi the past sea
It is not to bo understood that this
figure represents the entire income of
tho jookey, for under tho rules he is
permitted to rido for other owners when
his services aro not demanded by tho
man to whom he is under contract. Tho
perquisites of a good jockey aro more
than tho salary of a capable cashier or
bookkeeper. Griflln, for instance, re
ceived $2, ?00 by way of a present, out
sido of his salary, for winning tho Fu
turity. He Is a sober, well mannered
lad and still very young, but ho takes
a great prirto in his family and is edu
cating his sisters and brothers out of his
earnings.—New York Bun.
How Sho Kept Her Girl.
Sho mado all tho other women madly
envious by saying that she hnd a jowcl of
a girl; that sho hnd lied lier for four
years, and that she expected to havo her
forevor. Tho other women asked her how
she accomplished It, nnd sho toid them.
"I pay her well," sho announced in tho
beginning. "I also pay her regularly. If
she wants to send liar moiioy home, she
oan do it at a given dato. Sho 13 in no
more uncertainty about her salary than
my husband is. Hor room is ploaaant.
It isn't elaborate, but it is as comfortable
and horurliko as I could mako it. I tell
ter exactly what I want done and lot her
do it then ln her own way.
"The children am not, allowed to give
her orders, and thoy are obliged to treat
hor respectfully. I myself am ns polito aa
I know how to be to her. I never repri
mand her in public. 1 don't mine'letting
her sco that I llko her and ov?c tellioft
hor so. I praise her When sho deserve
praise. Sho lias company a oouplo of timns
a week, and eho novcr abuses lier privi
leges in that respect. I try to give her ai
snr.ch freedom as if sho were employed iv
tome other capacity. I think my success
ivith her is an advertisement for my moth
td." —Baltimore Herald.
