National line dock the other day there was a mountain of snuff colored bags just out of the ship. When the stevedores hauled them about everybody's nose was tickled. "That's nothing but tepper, all the way from Singapore via London," said the superintendent. "How much is there of it?" he was asked. "Not a great deal; 300 or 400 tons," was the answer. A muscular 'longshoreman at hand said: "Sure we dhrink it. The bar keepers know we like a dab of it on the head of the growler." Just then a clerk came along and began making complaint of the way the men were tearing the bags with their hooks. He pointed to a trail of the spice along the dock and said that his house would make the ship pay for the loss in weight. The superintendent ordered the men to sew up all leaky bags, and the merchant's apprentice smiled in satisfaction. In re sponse to questions he replied: "Last De cember pepper was booming. Every body thought there was going to be a scarcity of it, and they all wanted to buy, and they did buy. This is that same pep )er just coming in. It is worth about a cent a pound less to-day than they paid for it. I think the most of it cost the buyers something like sixteen cents " a pound. A good many of them are stuck. Pepper is apt to weigh less when it ar rives than what you find charged for in your invoices. Some of it will leak out of tears in the bags; some of it will be 'sampled' when nobody is looking; but the great loss in weight is believed to re sult from the fact that it dries out. The native chaps that grow the berry ship it down all sorts of little streams in all sorts of junks, and it catches a good deal of salt water by the time it is shipped from Singa pore. Water doesn't hurt whole pepper in the least unless it is kept wet too long and allowed to rot, but it adds to its avoirdupois. "When you reflect that 00,000,000 of us are shaking it three times a day on almost everything we eat, is it any wonder we get away with so much pepper? Much of it I suppose is gob bled up by those concerns that make salads and sauces and pickles and catsups." New York Sun. Sickness Amoug the Indians. The reports of the Indian agents show that during last year 65,356 Indians re quired medical treatment for sickness or wounds. The majority of them suffered from diseases of the eye, and diseases of the respiratory organs came next in or der. Over J 0,000 were consumptive and 7,000 were treated for disorders of the digestive organs. This large showing for dyspepsia would, no doubt, in an eastern community, have been unjustly charged to the account of civilization and pie. Of enthetic diseases due to immorality there was little to support the outcry that has been raised- against the Indians, as less than 2,000 were treated for all diseases of this class. It is worthy of note, also, that only four Indians suffered from inebria tion, and but one in 250,000 red men had the delirium tremens. Frank Leslie's. Various Ways of Making Change. Some one has taken the time and trouble to figure out the various combina tions of coins that might be used in clianging a quarter, and places them at 215. The pieces used in making the changes are the 20 cent piece, 10 cent piece, 5 cent piece, 3 cent piece, 2 cent piece, and 1 cent piece. To be able to make all the changes would require one 20 cent piece, two 10 cent pieces, five 5 cent pieces, eight 3 cent pieces, twelve 2 cent pieces, and twenty-five 1 cent pieces, making in all fifty-three pieces of money, representing 1.38. New York Sun. The Foundations of Galveston. The boring of an artesian well at Gal veston shows on what peculiar founda tions the city rests. In the first place it stands on a narrow sand spit between Galveston bay and the gulf of Mexico. After going through 32 feet of quicksand the drill passed through blue clay, .17 feet; coarse sand, 26; white clay, 107; sea mud, 57: olive clay, 116; sea mud, 130; blue clay, 26; sea mud, 11; blue clay, 117; total, 658 feet. At a depth of 500 feet several palmetto logs were passed through. New York Sun. Disadvantages of Egotism.
