The pine barrens are to be turned Into gold through the magic touch of the chemist's hand, and the land that has been so forbidding will be rendered lit for cultivation. A few years ago the suggestion that these billions of charred nine stumps possessed tho the slightest value would have been derided Ono dollar nn aero has been considered a prohibitive price for the lands thus encumbered, and tho man possetsed of sufficient hardihood to settle nmld the barrens was regarded with mingled pity and suspicion as to his mental soundness. Many of these set tlers made good, It Is tine, but tho pros pect was terrifying to thousands of oth ers who would have flocked into tho country had It not been for the time nnd labor Involved In digging out the old htumps nnd destroying them. All this will shortly be changed. With tho rapid depletion of the Norway pine forests, nnd the consequent falling off in the rource of supply of by-products, in entlve genius began to assert Itself Thn pine sturrvps, rich In resinous properties nnd turpentine, hnd long been regarded with Interest by chemists, who believed thnt they could be converted Into a source nf wealth. How to do thin was the problef confronting them, which ap pears to have received a practical solu tion. And In tho working out of this problem wonders have been performed that make Aladdin's lump appear com monplace by comparison. Destructive distillation Is the process employed n securing turpentine and by products from these, pine stumps thnt wero once regarded as a curse, but nro now hailed as a new source of wealth. The shredded and broken wood Is piled on cars capable of holding about two cords each and run Into huge retorts, The Intense heat encountered here drives out the pitch and tar as well as tho moH- turn, leaving In place of the two cords of wood some 30 bushels of excellent charconl. The fluids are subjected tn chemlcnl treatment which separates the turpen tine from the tar. The former Is then carried through pipes to a copper worm not unlike those employed In distilling liquor, where It Is condensed and flows Into tnnks. lly a siphon process the water Is removed from the turpentine and the latter Is ready to bo refined.

New York, June 17 One of those sud elen waves of hysteria which from tlmt to time sweeps the crowded tenements nf tho East Side to-day temporarily closeel three public schools with nn at tendance of more thnn 4,v pupils, blnckeel nil trnfflc on Grand Street for nn hour nnd wns not quieted until tho pollen reserves were called out. Beyond the fact that many Jewish parents havo of Inte been receiving threatening let tcra deinnndlng $1 from each family, on pnln of having their children murdered thero Is no explanation. First the rumbling of a fire engine on tho gallon renched the ears of the pent up eh!!elrn of a school that houses 2,3'j0 ptipllr. The engine whlstleel shrilly, a little girl ehrlcked Iti answer, and In a minute the hnllwayu were filled with n mob of shrieking, fighting boys and girls, nnd nngry pnnlc stricken mothers from nenrby tenements were clawing nnd kicking st th" outside of the street doors. As If by pre.irrangement another passing engine chafed the nerves of another s"t of children In a second school. The rumor spread through the excited purging streets that the school was on fire. Before the crowds could get to It there was a shout that a third school haet been blown up by the Black Hand. Then there was no holding tho people. Parents fought with the police for their children and many were torn njjd brulied In the seuflle. Alt traffic cam to a stop and It was long before order was re stored. All the East Side's schools had to be closed an hour sarller than Is usual It wn found Impossible tn get more than half the normal attendance of children and those that did return could not study. A CtniOt'S TOMB. (From the Dundee Advertiser.) One of the most curious tombs In the United Kingdom Is In county Wexford In It Is laid the body of one of that curi ous body the Resurrectionists. One por tion of the tomb 1 a furnished chamber, with a table and a few chairs. On the table will be found nt any time a dainty meal of considerable dimensions, with .1 fowl, n ham, a leg of mutten, and tho ne-csary drinkables. The departed Resurrectionist provides by his will that this meal shall be laid each fortnight, nnd ' If the meal Is untouched In the meantime, It shall be given tn thn poor nnd a fresh meal laid." So far the mal hns been untouched, though eerie rumors sprend round the district from time to time that In spirit form the gentleman has appeared nnd has enlnyed his meal Curious stories are told of poor people o whom the ham or the leg of mutton has heen given being awakened In the night by strange rapping. on their doors a' d wlndowsj nnd even by demnnds In a grim voice for a portion of the f-id which hns been distributed. As a re sequence nnd probably for nnothe- snd rcnon, it has eome to be the practice to consume the food Immediately It brought home. It Is the only way to counteract the envy of the spirit, with whom, apparently, hungpr Is constantly present. NOT A DRESSY PERSON.
