A Cargo of Pepper.
On the 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
pepper, all the way from Singapore via
London," said the superintendent.
"How much is there of it?" he was
"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 hooka.
He pointed to a trail of the spice along
the dock and said that his house would
make the ship pay for tb z 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
per just coming in. It is worth about a
cent a pound less to-day than they paid
for it. I think the mast 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
GO, 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."

Sickness Amoi.g 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 10,000 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
changing 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, 147; total, 058 feet. At a depth of
500 feet several palmetto logs were passed
through. New York Sun.
Disadvantages of Egotism.
Egotism, while it brings great grist to
the mill, feeding the brain with enormous
energy and making a man or a woman
succeed because one must and will and
shall be prominent this egotism is not an
agreeable companion on the upland lawn
or m a country house or in society. An
egotistical woman does not get invited to
the "httb dinners:" she is reserved for
the formal ones of twenty-four. Mrs.
