Some events that have recently trans pired in this city denote the existence sod active operation of an organized band of pirates, who propose to levy blsckmsil upon every mine owner and operator in the West. This organiza tion seem* to have established a chain of branches, extending from San Kranoisco to London, with agent* throughout the mining eeotion, and Cbioago is apparently the headquarters of the gang. They are thus placed in possession of a list of all the properties plaoed upon the market, and their first endeavor is to secure the handling of these at enormous commis sions. Failing in that, the entire gang of harpies on both sides of the ocean are turned loose. Kvery conceivable report, calculated to give the mine a “black eye," i* put into circulation among inves tors, io the effort to extort blackmail or defeat sales. It is a moat damnable con spiracy and connected with it are some men who pose in their" respective com munities as respectable and upright citi zens. Kvery mining region has always been plentifully supplied with "back-cap pers,'' who endeavor to defeat every sale that does not promise them a commis sion, but this gang is operating upon a more gigantic scale than ever before at tempted.—Salt Lake Inter-Mountain Mining Reoord. — THE ul'ir NTMEAM. Remarking upon some of the geograph ical charts now available to the student of physical science, it is pointed out to a writer that elsewhere in the world there is not so msjeetio a flow of water as the gulf stream, a remarkable body having its beadqosrtcrs in the Uulf of Mexico, from thence flowing northeasterly along the shores of the United States to the bsnfcs of Newfoundland. Then rushing across the Atlantic Ocean to the British isles, it is divided into two currents, one flowing northward to the Atlantic Ocean, the other southward to the Azores, and the velooity of this immense flow being more rapid than that of the Mississippi at New Orleane or even of the Amazon at 100 milea above ita mouth. Phenomenal, too, ia tha fact that, although ita bed aud banka are cold water, ftt tha vaat atream ia vary warm, aod ao great ia the ab aeooa of affinity or commingling between theaa watera that their line of junetion ia dietiootly viaibla to tha eye. Further, tha watera of thia wonderful atream do not in any part of tbair oourae touch tbe bottom of the tea. They are defended at tha bottom and aidea by what haa been termed a trough of cold water, one of the beat noo-oonductora. Conae quently vary little beat ie loat, and the warm water ia carried tbouaanda of milee, loaing only four dagraaa of beat on tba Journey from tba Gulf of Mexioo to tba Britiah ialea. Tropical Moulberu Sfevmlo. Tha ranch of John Kiarnan, about 60 milea aouth of Picoha, aaema to mark tbe dividing line between tba northerly and aoutharly part of our oounty, aaya tbe Piooba Reoord. At all pointa aouth of Kiarnao’a place tha eaaeon ie alwaya mooh earlier than at pointa farther north, At thia lima in Bunkarvilla and lath* Muddy V allay nil fruit trass are Id bloom, figs ara forming on tbs treat, some already being an inoh or mors in diametar; Pall grain stands nearly a foot high and will be ready to harvest Iste in Msy or early in June, sod in two or three weeks the first crop of alfalfa will be ready to cut. lo the northern part of the county there is yet little, if any, aign of Spring. This semi-tropical part of our county is tha one which will experience shoot the first aodoertaioly the most last ing benefits form the construction of n railroad through this section. A Failure In Furllameut. Henry M. Staoley, the African ex plorer, is, apparently, a failure id Par liament. He hse made a speech to empty benches, the reporti of which fail to indicate any mental graap or oratori os! treatment of the question. It ie easier nowadays to find fame in a wilder ness thsu in a metropolis.—Chicago Chronicle. To Prereul Tullllng. The Supreme Court of Maaeachueette baa deoided that a teacher baa no right to require a acholar to tell tales on a companion. Such a decision is certainly in tha intereat of honor ami morality, whatever the teachers who try to pro mote treaohery among their pupila may think about it. THE HUEXTUKX KA T IX LAW. Daniel David of Brooklyn, New York, brought auit againet Dr. Guoiond of Bath Beach, Long Ivland, for $'£>,000 damagea for malpractice. The plaintiff claime that the defendant did not aet bit ton'a broken arm properly and in conae quence the arm hat been permanently crippled. David had I’rofeaaor i’eckham of tbe Adelphi Academy, Brooklyn, pho tograph the crippled arm by tbe Koent gen raya. The pictnrea abow that the arm wae not properly aet. There ia a apace of half an inch between the broken enda of the bone, which preclude! the poaaibility of tbe fracture knittiog prop erly. The trial of tbe caae takea place be fore the Supreme Court at Brooklyn. Kininent counael ia engaged on both tide! and much intereat ia taken in tbe reault, aa it ie the Qrat time photograph! taken by the Koentgen ray have been intro duced aa evidence in a court of juatice. Henceforth when a aurgical operation ia performed which involvea tbe aetting of fractured honee and there ia any doubt aa to their proper adjuatment the Koentgen ray will be brought into requiaition to determine whether the bonea have been placed in a natural poeition or not, and cautioua aurgeoue will be likely to have auch photograph! taken aa a eafrguard againat poaaible auite for malpractice. A Kork-ltrillInK ruelMI. A Rutte, Montana, dispatch says: An excited crowd of two or three hundred ■aw big Tom Tallou sink a 3"$-inch hole in a granite rock in fifteen minutes and walk away with the world's champion ship at the Iuterrille pavilion in Rutte last Saturday afternoon. Mike Burns, his opponent, put down a 35J-incn bole, and in so doing had the satisfaction of beating all previoua Montana records, aud held the championship for just a lit tle more than fifteen minutes. The rock used was the same one used by Joe Free they and John Campbell in their cham pionship match in July, 1893. At that time Freethey drilled 35 3-16 and Camp bell 35 5-16, and this record stood until Saturday. Tatlon pounded his steel at the rate of sixty blows per minute for the space of tune allotted, fifteen min utes, and did not miss a stroke. More than $6,000 changsd hands on the result. An Knormoua Pie. The inhabitant* of Denby Dale, Dear Hudderafirld, have begun to prepare for the making of another of their famoua pie*, it is to be io commemoration of the repeal of the Corn lawa in 1846, and it baa been decided to hold tbe celebra tion on Saturday, Auguat 1. At the next meeting of the committee plana of the oven and pie-diah will be aubmitted, and, if approved, tendere will be invited from boiler maker* for tbe diah, and the work will be put in hand at once. It 1a propoaed to make the diah 10 feat long, 6 feet C inchea broaJ and 1 foot daap.— Waatminater Caxette. Ulailitnae'a Oplulou. During the interchange of complimenta at Cauna* between Mr. Oladatone and Preaident Faure of France, the latter aaked the great Rogliahmen, who ia 86 year* of age, if he found time hanging heavily upon bia handa. “No," eo awered the grand old mao, "1 follow very cloaely the affaire of my ooontry. The mao who haa nothing to du ia tbe moat miaerahle being in exiatenoe—the moat to be pittied." Barrel* amt Baara. Beer kegs have been used with great success for the odd purpose of catching bears in the vicinity of lioquiaui, Wash., and are said to make the best bear trap* ever used in that region. One end is knocked out of the keg, and then a number of strong, sharp spikes are driven into its sides, ttie points slanting towards the closed end. A big dab of honey or other delicacy es pecially liked by the bears is then placed at the further end . and the keg is carelessly dropjied ill the woods, where the bears are likely to stumble across it. The device caught five bears in ono week for one keg planter re cently. The bear juHt pushed right into the keg after the honey in the end, and the spikes effectually pre vented him from hacking out, and all he could do was to roll around until be is tired and wait for the trap layer to come around. _ IlflptuK Her Out. Mrs. Peck—What do you sit there reading for when I am trying to think of a word? Should I tiav “disillu sioned” or “disillusionized?” Mr. N. Peck—I dunno.

World. A winnow KIRKUK. Tr«ai|iamil From (ho Inside !»■( • ■okklai-Ulsu Outside. A transparent mirror was brought from Germany to this country a few months ago by a New York firm and the perplexing qualities of the glass excited much curiosity. It was at once in demand for many purposes, and the firm is now engaged in importing it in large quantities. It is still a novelty, and some screens made of this glass, have been recently placed on sale at one of the local stores. They are probably the first to be viewed in this city. The coating is placed on one side of the glass just the same as the silvering on the mirror and has the same prop erties of reflecting the rays of light and color. The difference, however, is that when looked at from the back the coat ing is entirely transparent. To one sitting indoors the view without is not obstructed in the least, but a pedes trian peering into the window or door way is greeted by his own reflection. The glass is used largely in lieu of screens where privacy is desired with out obstruction of light from the out side or barring the vision of those in side. It was introduced with effect first in a New York club window. Be hind it the chappies could sit and ogle the girls and view the passing throng without being themselves observed. Its use was also resorted to in cafes, where it offered privacy to those loung ing inside, while the latter had an un disturbed view of the »treet.—New York Journal. UI.AU TO UCT IIIH HAT BACH A number of prominent literary men were at one time gathered together in a well known chophouse in New York. The conversation was of course bril liant, and the repartee sparkled with mirth and wit. During a lull in the talk the door slowly opened and an old Southern darkey, grizzled with age, poked his head in, and then slowly drew his body in after him. A waiter immediately started toejecthim, when one of the gentlemen cried out: “Wait a moment! Let’s see what he wants?” The old darkey hobbled up to the table where the gentlemen sat and held out his hat. Throwing a wink to his neigh burs, the gentleman took the hat, and, making a show of placing some thing into it, bravely passed it on to the next gentleman, who did likewise. The hat made a tour of the entire room, to the puzzled wonder of the darky. The last man to receive it sol emnly tianded it back, with a very po lite bow, saying, "There, sir, don’t you think you have something to be thankful for?’’ The old darky looked slowly round the company, and, me chanically taking the hat, said, "Gen’ men, I’ze tankful dat I’ze eben got de bat hack!’’ The reply was so thor oughly enjoyed by the company that the old darky left the place a much richer man than he had entered it.— New York Journal. Kentucky Bravery. The New York Tribune savs: A sen ator’s wife who is an accomplished musician, gave adinner party recently. Among the guests was a certain mem ber of the Kentucky delegation in Con gress. While awaiting announcement of dinner, at the urgent request of some of the guests, the hostess played and sang. She had just finished a polon aise by Chopin, which was greeted with a burst of applause, and as she Arose from the piano in the silence which followed the sweet strains, her husband turned to the gentleman from the blue grass State with : “ Would you like a sonata before dinner, Colonel?" “ Well, I don’t mind,” promptly re plied the Kentucky statesman, bracing up quickly. “I had two on my way here, but I reckon I can stand an olher."_ Her Awakening. Mamma—And so he complained of your biscuits, did he? Well, I wouldn't mind. You will soon learn to make better ones, and then you will please him. New Wife—But it is not that, mam ma. I don’t mind his finding fault with my cooking. But to think that love, which 1 supposed was a senti ment of the heart, is only an affair of the stomach!—Boston Transcript. Sira.
