A Workinginaii Among Savages.
"We will suppose a race of tmwarliko
savages, living on an island where loaves
and roast mutton grew upon all the trees,
and where the climate wus so delightful
that there was need for neither roof nor
clothing. Under such conditions civilization
would be impossible. Conditions
somewhat similar actually do exist, and
under these civilization i3 impossible.
The reason is plain. We have suid that
the people are savages that is, they are
motived by those wants only which are
inseparable from all animal life. They
are motived by the want to eat and the
want to. reproduce their species. Both
these they can satisfy with next to no
labor; at all events, there is no place for
effort, and thus most of their life consists
of a paiuless leisure. Nevertheless,
they do not employ this leisure iu producing
luxuries that shall supplement
their necessaries. L:bor is impossible
to them. They are no more capable of
producing wealth than they would be
had they neither hands nor
Their island is rich, we will suppose, in
coal and in metals; but they sink no
shafts, build no furnaces, smelt no iron.
And why? There is no want to compel
them to do so. A man who is always
sure of sufficient to eat, who suffers
nothing for want of either shelter or
clothing, who has never seen or heard of
wealth, or dreamed of the attractions it
might hold out to him such a man will
be incapable of any paiuf til exertion, he
will be incapable of raising himself, and
so will a nation of such men. Let us
suppose, however, that a stranger arrives
to our island, who contrives by some
means or other to possess himself of all
the bread and of all the legs of mutton,
and, withdrawing them for a single day,
makes the people feel the pangs of hunger.
In a single day energy is created.
The thing that was not, is. Now we
have arms and hands and intelligence,
endowed on a sudden with power and activity,
and ready to be guided and partly
informed by the intelligence of him who
can give or withhold food. Now the
helpless, indoleut, nerveless savages become
strong, industrious men. They
have been transfigured and made different
beings by this one agency the
agency of want, with the prospect of
having their waut satisfied. Thus they
are perfectly pliant to their despot's will
the wdl of the man who is the
sponsible dispenser of food. He sets
them first to one labor, then to another;
he teaches them verious arts. Metals
are worked, roads are made, a palace is
built for him, and tilled with furniture
and all manner of luxuries; his food is
served up to him in new and delicate ways;
he is waited upon by a retinue of servants.
What then has happened to the
community during this process? It has
one very rich man in it; all the rest arc
poor. But is it poorer than it was originally?
In no way. The people originally
had as much food as they oould eat.
That was their only riches. They have
as much food now. The only difference
is that before they receive it they are
forced to employ the time they once
wasted. Malloch, in Conlemjwrary Review.
Thomas Carlyle wrote as follows fifty
years ago: "As to writing for the
present I will neither advise nor dissuade
you. If you have any heartfelt
interest in any literary matter, any idea
that gives you no rest until it be uttered
commit it to paper, and, if circumstances
favor, to the press, the sooner
the better. Only if you have no such
interest, no such idea, do not in any
wise regard it as a misfortune (most
probably it is a blessing, for the sweetest
of fruit is longest in ripening); but
simply as a sign haifyour vocation as
yet' is not to impart, but to acquire."

An Angel Fish Caught.
An angel fish, said to be the first even
brought to this city, was caught with a
hook and line by some Italian fishermen
twenty miles outside of Farallon Islands
in very deep water brought into the
city and sold to an enterprising tobacco
dealer on Montgomery street, where it
was hung up in the window to excite the
wonderment of passers-by. The specimen
is about three and a half feet long,
has a head as large as a man's, beneath
which are a pair of fins,
spreading out over two feet from tip to
tip, from the lower extremity of the
wings they are much more like wings
than fins and the body taper off to a
small tail. The back of the fish is a
dark gray and brownish color, slightly
mottled and studded with sharp,
protuberance. The under side of
the fish presents a most curious appearance,
being colored and shaped from tho
neck down the entire bodj' like a human
body. Tho thorax is rib-marked and
the abdomen is singularly man-like, and
the resemblance to the human organization
is very remarkable. The novelty
and rarity of tho specimen drew to the
store where it is exhibited a number of
Charles Wolcott Brooks informed the
Call reporter sent to make the fish's acquaintance
that the one brought in by
the Italians is a very rare specimen. It
has heretofore been scientifically classed,
but not generally known as a personal
acquaintance, so to say, by even tho
most favored few. Mr. Brooks stated
that the squatina, speaking of it in a
friendly manner, is a habitue of very
deep water, where it pursues the very
pleasant pastime of feeding on flounders
and soles. Unlike San Francisco bon
vivantcs the squatina is never forced to
accept a slice of sturgeon for a sole and
pay two bits for it. Yet the sqantina appears
capable of mastering even a whole
sturgeon, having a true fissure mouth
fracturing its enormous head from the
two joints where its ears should have
been set. San Francisco CalL
Hoiv Mining Will Surely Pay.
';"No; no hoisting works not it I
know it. You can fool away a good deal
Of good, hard coin on hoisting works."
"How in thunder do you run your
mine?'' "On the assessment plan, sir.
That's the lat st and most approved
method. When we have a good map of
the lower workings we don't need any
works to speak of. I keep a man in
Virginia at $G0 a month to superintend
the location and write weekly letters,
and I stay in San Francisco, in my office
on Pine street, and levy the assessments
every sixty days; that's a3 often as the
law alloAvs. I am the President, Board
of Trustees, Secretary, Treasurer, and
everything more especially the 'Treasurer.
Of course I draw salary for all
the offices, and when I get through
drawing salaries I turn the rest over to
the agent in Virginia to pay off tho
hands; he saves enough to pay himself.
This is what I call scientific mining, sir.
You get the silver out of the pockets of
the stockholders and leave the vast
and auriferous deposits in
your claim for your children, who can
go right ahead and develop the niino
just as soon as the public quit putting
up, which isn't at all likely to happen.
As long as people are being born in
Nevada and California my inine will run
on like a chronometer clock." "But,"
said the Utah man, "my style of mining
keep lots of men at work." "So does
mine," quoth the Golden Gate chap.
"Thousands of men are working night
and day to pay the assessments. " It
keeps the oountry as busy as a beehive
and .the speaker sauntered to the
graph office to order assessment No. 86.
