How a Nevada Disciple of Black

Lively Fight tlio Result or the Experi
ment General Destruction of Oflice
AnExpensive But
Successful Stratagem
LttJcton Goke a leading lawyer of
the Comstock is outside of a court
room one of life -mildest-mannered
men that ever cut up a witness or an
intestate estate Off his legitimate bat
tle ground and in ordinary walks of
1 fe Littleton Coke is patient and long
sufferiMg would not even utter a word
that would 1 sturb the serene rapacity
or a gas fitter lie coidd sm lingly
1 stcn by the hour to a querulous old
woman complaining that faces were
pidled at her by the children of a
neighbor yet he had for a t me tribu
lations that harrowed his soul down to
its lowest levels
Through pretense of business in the
beg nnng two men became visitors to
hs snug and quie second floor office
who presently developed from their
chrysalis state of mere rapid maun
deers nto such intense and active
bores that they became the terror of
h is life They were men who possessed
the faculty of discoursing with much
sp rit and -volubility for whole hours
upon the incongruousness of incon
gruity the wpmanly nature of
women and other interesting and in
structive subjects
Poor Coke this affliction sore long
t me he bore without being able to
dev so any platfwhereby he might rid
h m elf of the pair who were bringing
4dovii his gray ha rs in sorrow to the
grave So deeply did the piescnce of
the twin bores affect him that his heart
sank and his soul sickened at the bare
ippearaneo of either of h s persecu
One day when one of these tireless
toreadoers whose namemay be writ
ten Jones was drilling the lawyer
through and through causing him to
sweat blood all regardless of a ma
lign coldness that shone in the legal
eye the conversation turned upon gar
Although a perfect magpie himself
Jones at once asserted that above all
other thug- he abhorred a loquacious
person man or woman Of course
sad he one must expect tongue-wagging
in the case of a woman but con
stant gabble from a man I can not en
Did it never occur to you Jones
said the lawyer that you are yourself
a pretty industrious talker and you
are by some suspected of having kissed
the Llarney stone
What inc cried Jones Why
sir I am really a man of very few
words In most companies I am sure
that I am txltogeiher too reserved and
reticent that through my silence taci
turnity and uncommunicativeness I am
frequently suspected of being in some
sort a spy upou thoe present in fact
that 1 cause among those in the room
a feeling of uneasiness and depres
That sir no one will dispute said
Littleton Coke dryly
The lawyer had seated himself at his
open front Window both in order to
obtain some relief by gazing out into
the street and that the fresh air might
fan his brow and cool his rising wrath
ijiancng iar aown mo street ne saw a
block or more away Air Smith- bore
No tL Tii s was ipecacuanha upon
castor oil It was plain to Littleton
Coke that the twn bore was heading
for his office
A sudden thought flashed across his
brain Turning to Jones he said It
may be all as you say but the proof of
the pudding is in the eating Now
jnst for the fun of the thing and to
prove to you that you do not know
yourself Ill bet 3Tou o that you can
not go into that closet and remain
there half an hour without speaking or
coming out
Ill take the bet cries Jones with
vivacity I am as sure of the money
as if I already had it in my pocket
What time is it now
-Just half past two ci clock If yon
do nob speak or come forth youll have
won your money at three oclock
Bear in mind however that you are to
remain in the closet with the door
clo od in the dark you know for half
an hour and that you are neither to
speak nor come out no matter what
mav occur
Quite satisfactory but you are not
to set the house on fire nor are you to
lire your revolver through the closet
And vou are to call mc exactly at
three oclock
-Most assuredly to the minute
Alo you shall have a chair while in
the closet I will not require you to
Jones had but jusfcTeen snugly seat
ed in the closet and the door closed
upon him when Smith came puffing up
i the stairs
Both Smith and Jones are dabblers
I in stocks curbstone brokers and street
corner capitalists
H selves highly as experts in all manner
of inininjr matters
As soon as Smith
he Deo an about his favorite mining

as sharp on stocks as any man of my
acquaintance says Golden Shower has
only just begun to tumble that it wll
co so far below bed rock that dyna
mite will not send it up swears he
would not give one bit an acre for such
Smiths ejes flashed and his hair
Hal he snorted Jones says that
does he The ass What does he
know about the Golden Shower or any
other mine If vou listen to Jones he
will land your boat for you devilish
qu ck He hasnt a particle of mining
sense common sene nor sense of any
kind when you come to pan him out
Lawyer Coke detected about this
tme an uneasy shuffling of feet in the
closet His scheme was working
Chuckling inwardly he said Win-
Smith I nave always understood Jones
to be a sharp dealer in stocks and that
he has made some pretty good hauls
Good hauls Smith repeated I
dont believe he has ever made a split
ter As he has nothing to put into
stocks how in thunder can he get any
thing out of them
But I havealways understood Jones
to be rather a heavy dealer the law
yer said
Heavy dealer be hanged Jones re
plied He stands before the bulletin
boards in front of the offices of the
brokers and blows by the hour about
the good turns he has just made Never
a stock goes up but he has just bought
500 or 1000 shares and never a stock
goes down but he has just sold in the
nick of tme All this time he does
not own a share of anything except
perhaps some wildcat that is off the
Hes the boss liar 01 the Com-
stock at one
A sound from the closet as of the Cor N
grating of teeth reached the ear of the
lawyer He smothered a chuckle and
proceeded with the witness Oh but
you must be wrong Mr Smith You
must be wronging Mr Jones in what
you say Mr Jones dresses well and
lives well generally therefore he must
be making something in stocks
Not a splitter said Smith Not
a splitter 1 tell you He owes every
body that wdl trust him He owes his
tailor owes at his restaurant owes for
his lodgings and would have been at
the end of his string long ago but that
his landlady and some other foois be-
stock transactions Hell go to where corn
the woodb ne twinetli very soon You
can put Jones down for aregular dead
beat I shouldnt wonder if he had al
ready skipped the town I have not
seen him for a day or two Besides I
hear that he has managed to get hold
of the little savings ot his landlady
Liar was heard in a muffled roar
as Jones rushed from the closet with
uplifted chair bristling and foaming
w th rage
Smith bounded from his seat at the
lawyers center table with eyes gog
gling at the sudden apparition of
Jones from a quarter so unexpected
anu in iooks ana attituae so venomous
and threatening He saw that the dogs
of war had been slipped and that it
was to be war to the knife Impelled
by the instinct of self preservatiou
Smith grasped an ink bottle from the
table and opened the battle by hurling
it with all hs force at Jones head
Jones neatly stopped the missile with
the bottom of his chair The bottle
exploded with a crash and a shower of
ink flooded the carpet and spattered
the walls As Smth reached for a
paper we ght Jones let drive at him
Witti his chair Smith ducked his head
below the table just in time and the
chair crashed into a large mirror
Lawyer Coke loudly called upon the
combatants to cease the fray but their
blood was up and the voices of both
were still for war They fired away at
each other from opposite sides of the
table around which they were dancing
vfith books inkstands and all else that
comes to hand Jones had just lired
at Smith a plaster bust of soaie great
legal light which missed and crashed
to atonic in the remains of the shat
tered mrror when the latter sezed
upon a bronze gladiator and whirled it
about his head yelling Now Ill
fetch you
At sight of a missile so formidable
Jones made a sudden plunge under the
table probably with the intention of
grasping Smith by the legs and land
ing him uion his back Smith how
ever saw the dodge just as he was in
the act of tiring away with the gladia
tor and reserving his ammunition
stooped beneath the table to whack
Joness head with it Pinding that
there was not room in which to
his weapon Smith contented himself
by trying to punch it into Joness face
and eyes bmith soon caused a free
flow of claret from Jones no e and
from a cut he made over his right eye
when the latter managed to get hold of
the base of the statuette and by a sud
den push sent the head of the gladiator
into Smiths mouth smashing m one or
two front teeth This unexpected re
turn fire and the pain it inflicted
caused Smith to make an involuntary
attemut to rise to his feet capsizing the
table and tumbling it clear over Jones
In a moment both men were upon their
feet and at it a la Heenan and Sayers
both as bloody as butchers
Finding that words alone were un
heeded the man of law rushed in to by
to separate the combatants by muscu
lat force He arrived between the pa r
just in time to receive a left- handed
plumper on the nose from the- blood- i
blinded Jones Smarting from the blow
and seeing blood flowing over his hands
and shirt front Lawyer Coke ran to a
desk and brought forth a revolver
threatening to shoot dead the man who
struck another blow Observing the
Both value them- bloody condition of the disciple of
Blackstone and the deadly look in his
j pve usually so mua ine comoatanis
entered the Toom fell back and ceased hostilities
At the muzzie of lus cocked revolver
Coke ordered Mnth into an adjoining
and out by a rear passage and door
As Smith tookhis departure hesworo
that ho never would ajjan darken the
lawyers door Ho declared that he
had been led a trap that an am
buscade had been prepared for him
I that Coke had concealed Jones in the
Y Sun
boinir often
closet with malice aforethought and
that he had designedly been led into
abusing him This had been done that
at the proper moment Jones might
dart out and assault him He had
heretofore thought pretty well of Coke
but this treacherous affair ended their
friendship forever forever sir It is
the last feather
Smith being dismissed the lawyer
returned to Jones and -set him to wash
ing away all removable traces of the
combat When about to escort him
down stairs Coke- turned and sad
Mr Jones before you go Ill troiul
you for tht five dollars I have won of
You will You have the cheek to
ask it Mr Littleton Coke youll never
sec the color of five dollars from me
But that you have the brass of the
devil you would not ment on it after
humbugging me into that closet ass
that 1 was and then bringing in Sm th
to villify and assassinate me You w 11
probably hear from me in an action for
conspiracy I rejoce that I gt in that
stinger on your nose Never speak to
me again sir on any occasion and
Jones depart d in a towering rage
Well welicred Littleton Coke
when left alone as he s urveyed the
wreck of his oflice and inspected h s
nose in the fragment of a mirror that
still remained attached to its frame
Well I have settled the pair of them
but I must confess that my plan for
suppressing bores has turned out an
expensive and a painful one I shall
have a nose on mo like a prize potato
and my oflice looks as if it had been
the scene of the latest explo t of the
dynamiters it has been expensive
but thank God the job is done Ive

Their Origin and Habitat Growth in Semh
Polar Ilegionn
Recent numbers of Kaluren contain
interesting papers by Professor
Sehubeler on the original habitat of
some of the cereals and the subsequent
cultivation in the Scandinavian lands
and Iceland of barley and rye more es
pecially It would appear that barley
was cultivated before other cereals in
Scandinavia and that the generic term
mm rt l i rtl nniftn AT t
ipinin aiuuug xiwi iiiimil
to this gram only fiom tho oldest
times and that in the Norwegian laws
of the seventeenth and eighteenth cen
turies wherever reference was made to
the Kornskat or standard by which
land in the Northern lands was and
still is rated in accordance with tho
corn it is capable of 3ielding the term
was understood to apply to barley
Proof of the high latitude to wheh the
cultivation was carried m early ages is
afforded by tho Egds Saga where
mention is made of a barn in Helgo
land sxty five degrees N lat used
for the stor ng of corn and which was
so large that tables could be spread
within it for the entertainment of b00
guests In Icelandbarley was cult
vated from the time of its colonization
in 870 till the middle of the fourteenth
century or according to Jon Storraon
as lately as 40 Froni that period
down to our own times barley has not
been grown in Iceland with any sys
tematic attention the islanders being
dependent on the home country for
their supplies of corn In the last ccn
turv however varons attempts were
made both by the Dansh Government
and private individuals to obtain home
grown corn in Iceland and the success
with which these endeavors were at
tended gives additional importance to
the systematic undertaking whch has
beenset on foot by Dr Sehubeler and
others wthin the last three years for
the introduction into the island of the
hardier cereals vegetables and fruits
As many as 5S2 samples of seeds of
ornamental and useful plants most of
which were collected from the neigh
borhood ot Christ auia are now being
cultivated at KeyKjavik under the
special direction of the local Govern
ment doctor Herr Schicrbeck who
succeeded in 1883 in cutting barley
ninety eight days after the sowing 6l
the seed which had come from Alten
70 deg N lat And here it may be
observed that this seems tho polar
limit in Norway for anythng like good
barley crops The seed is generally
sown at the end of May and in favor
able seasons it may be cut at the end
of August the growth of the stalk
two and a half inches in
twenty four hours North of 00 deg
or 61 deg barley can not be success
full v grown in Norway at more than

a3 then escorted him down the stairs
from 1800 to l00 feet above the sen
level In Sweden the polar limit is
about 6S deg or 6G deg but even there
as in Finland night frosts prove very
destructive to young barley In some
of the t eld valleys of Norway on the
other baud barley may in favorable
seasons be cuteght or nine weeks after
its sowing and thus two crops may be
reaped in one summer According
even to a tradition current in Thele
marken a farm there owes its name
Triset to the three crops reaped in the
land in one year Rye early came into
use as a breadstuff in Scandinav a and
in 14t0 the Norwegian Council of State
issued an ord nance making it obliga
tory on every peasant to lay down a
certain proportion of his land in rye
In Norway the polar limit of summer
rve is about 69 deg and that of Wintei
rye about 61 deg but in Sweden it has
been carried along the coast as far
north as fro deg The summer rye
crops xxe generally sown and n fot

for their full maturity Nature

Oh yes certainly What did you

But she will get it if you send it
Yes bur how do I know that
though Sposen the train runs again

In that case the company would
make it good
I say the company would pay it
But I wouldnt want it back Id
wan t my sister to have it Thatd be
my main reason for sendin it
She would get it The company
would pay it to her

An Interesting Discovery
An interesting dscoveryhas recently
been made in connection with the Fo
rum at Rome On cutting into the ac
cumulation of the unexcavated portion
of the northeast side on which stands
between the Temple of Antoninus I
and Faustina and the Church of St
Adriano the row of modern buildings
which is ultimately fo be removed for
the completion of the excavations a
part of the pavement of the ancient
street connecting the Forum with the
Suburra has been uncovered
a lewl

street extends along the southeast side
of that part of the Curia which is now
the Church of St Adriano The pave- j

The Growth of the Trade in This Article
in tlio United Statrs
Said a well known manufacturer to a
reporter Tho consumption of choco
late in tho United States has had a won
derful growth In 1878 we manufac
tured into chocolate goods 24000 bags
of raw cocoa last year we used 54000
bags an increase of 30000 bags in five
years The next five years will see a
still greater rate of increase When
Humboldt discovered the use of the
cocoa plant in his travels be little
dreamed of the immense business that
was to grow out of the concoction of
his first cup of chocolate It Is to dav
fairly in the way of becoming one of
the principal articles of food through
out the world and tends eventuailv to
supplant tea and coffee as a beverage
As a flavoring- it alrealy stands next to
vanilla whcli heads the 1st and it s
used in all branches of cookery pastry
and creams and ior baking purposes
generally Fifteen years ago I went
on the road to sell in a small way
chocolate goods of my own manufac
ture and I was laughed at for my
pains At that time the consumption
was 1 niited in this country to tho few
large e ties in whch the forei gn ele
ment predom nated The article was
elsewhere comparatively unknown
The taste for chocolate is an ac
quired one and the public had to be
