Leopold is again intbecoppir country on buninPHH connected with the options he holds on the Huron, Isle Itoy ale, and Grand Portage mining proper ties. This time be has less to say than on previous occasions, though before be yond saying that the success of the deal seemed bright in prospect, little else came from him. From circumstances connected with the present trip, it would look as though the matter was ap proaching a conclusion, and probably a favorable one. Vice-President nyams.of the Clark-Bigelow mines, came up at the same time, and Saturday both gentle men, in company with Supt. Parnall, of the Tamarack, and Supt. Pope, o! the Franklin, were together in visiting the three properties and also in examining the shore of Dig Portage for a possible mill site. The four gentlemen also drove over to the Franklin mill and examined the new sand pump in successful working therp, and altogether spent a busy day together. When fonr gentlemen whose time is as well taken up and as valuable as is that of each of these spend the day together, thus it is probable that more than mere pleasure Is the motive. Spec ulation which identifies a powerful syn dicate with tbe stocking and backing of tbe consolidation of these properties is pleasant work for Houghton residents, and so long as from business reasons tte affair is clouded in mystery, such specu lation will go on. A preliminary meeting of the immedi ate supporters of the Pingree cause in Houghton was held Friday evening to arrange for a'public mass meeting'to or ganize a Pingree club. A committee was selectid to canvass the town for signa tures for membership in the club, and it is expected that 300 will be obtained. The meeting to organize will bs held at Pfeiffer's Hall tomorrow evening. Mr. Pingree will speak at Houghton at the Armory Opera House April 8. Mr. N. F. Leopold states that it has been decided to send the steamer Mani tou to Lake Superior in June and that Portage Lake will, of course, be vWted. Leopold & Austrian have not yet de cided whether the boat will carry a regu lar excurnlon party or whether they will extend invitations to the prominent bus iness men of Chicago to take the trip. Tbe new bridge is in such shape now that should tbe ice become impassable it could be finished for the crossing ol teams in a very few days. There remains hut n short distance to plank, and nearly all the side railing is in place. Tbe sidewalk has yet to be planked its entire length, but for practical use a few days' bustling woul l put the structure in shape. V! 4. C. A.

Off thscoatt of Norway, between two Islands of the Lofoden group, lt tbe largeal whirlpool In the world, lit name, Maal Strom, meaaa "whirling ttreaia," and the tills It wall earned. The great Maelatrorn It no longer held In snperttitlout fear, and maritime ehartt have taught the aallori of the world where the danger Ilea and how to avoid It, ao that aocidenta rarely ooour ntvtr, tioept through lgnnritnoe or a prevlout dUaater that ha rendered a vttiel unmanageable. Several yenra ago the captain of a tall Ing VMftel, denlrnut of teeing the famoua whirlpool at close quarter,, waa aiaured by his Norwegian pilot that he might ven ture near enough for examination without danger. And hore It what the captain taw: "I went on the main topsail yard with a good giant. I had been tested but a few minute when my thlp entered the dish of the whirlpool The velocity of the wa ter altered her enures three points toward the center. Th'.t alarmed res extremely for a moment. I thought destruction was inevitable. But she anewered her helm nobly, and ws ran along the edge, the wa ters foaming round ua in every form. "The testations I experienced are diffi cult to describe. Lanaglos an Inments elrels running round of a diameter at oat and a half miles, the velocity increasing as It approximated the center and gradually changing its dark blue ooler to white, foaming, tumbling, ruthlng to its vortex, very much ooncave- as mueh ao at tb water in a funnel when half run out. The nolte, too, hitting, roaring, dathlsg, al! prettlng on the mind at enoe, presented the most awful, grand and aolemu sight 1 ever beheld.

Tbe pilot aayt that several vesaels that had become un manageable have been tucked down, and that whiles have alto been deetroyed." Where does It go, thlt wonderful whirl? None onu any at yet.

And then comos tuch a hullabaloo of horns and balloon and baying of houndt at never wat heard all of lt prolonged to the utmott, that every hound aud every sportaman may come tip before the dealing of the death stroke. And then the horns changed their note and blew the hart, which etiquette forbade to be blown till that supreme moment, and therewith fol lowed elaborate ceremonies for cleaning tho deer and prepurlng for the worry, or, as it wa called, qunrry (ouree). Flnttlly tho innnter and the gentlemen next In rank to him held tip the deer's bend above the hounds' portion and "oklll fully loud" tho master cried out, "Dedow" (sad ho!), which was the signal for blood ing the hounds and for a fresh outburst of nolle. "Hallo every wight and every man blow the death" Is the order in the book, and they kept ou halloing and blowing, for it was the rule that as often at any man began to blow the rest ihould bear him fellowship. Then came a freah blast for the coupling of the houndt, with a pause of an "Ave Maria while" between tho uotes, yet another blast when the hounds went home and a final concert led by the master on arriving at the hall. Thus the whole countryside knew when thulr lord had killed hit deer and rejoiced accordingly. Macmlllan's Magaxlne. Tho Howe of the Batata.

PREVIOUS AGES SUPPLY US WITH ENORMOUS FOSSIL BONES. Llaarde Three .Tluiee tho Sice ut tbo Lar gest KUhat and a Tartl Wboee Shell Looked Like at Bet Mario UUuU aud the Ksaaorkablo Plated Llsord. The belief in a race of giants was once almost universal aud held until recent years. Eveu today large skeletons when found are sometimes reported ss being those of gisut human beings. This wat especially true of the period about the tenth aud eleventh centuries, aud in the latter a most arnaaiug discovery was reported, which threw tl.o scieu tifio world of the time into great excite ment. It waa taid that the body of Pal las, the son of Evander, had Ln dis covered beneath the tomb of the emper or Henry III. Tbe bones were enor mous, aud it is unnecessary to state, proved to have belonged to a huge fossil elephant. As late at the fifteenth cen tury a war of words was waged over a find of large bonet, one party claiming that they belonged to the giant Teuto bochut. In 1657 a giant waa discovered in Switzerland. The council of Luoerne requested a learned scientific man, Pro fessor Felix Plater of Basel, to report upon it, and he not only announced the bones as part of a bumau giant, but made a complete restoration, showing the man 20 feet high, which tbe proud city adopted as an ancestor in tho arms of tho commonwealth. Tbo design and some of tbo bones van still be seen in tho college of Jesuits at Luoerne. Un fortunately for tbe . theory and much to the discomfiture ef tbo people wbo bad raised to a high pinnacle this mighty ancestor, it was found to be tbo remains of an elephant Nearly all the mastodon finds in this country were attributed to giants, bnt there is no evidence that a human giant ever existed over 8 feet in height, and it is extremely doubtful If this height was ever attained. Giants other than human are very com mon in all branches of tbe animal king domgiants in every sense when com pared to their pygmy representatives of today. Some years ago some laborers in the Senalik hills of India were engaged upon a government work when they oame upon tbe remains of a turtle that proved beyond question that these ani mals bad their giants in the days of old. The shell which tbe men exposed might have been used as a shelter for several men, and at first, before its bony nature waa observed, it waa thought by the na tives to bo a hut of some kind. Fortu nately tbe bones were uninjured, and they were taken out and removed to the British museum, where a complete res toration of the animal may be seen. Tbe length of the turtle was 10 feet, its horizontal circumference 25 feet, and its girth 15 feet, but it was estimated by scientists that this was not an adult, and that when fully grown this huge creature would display a domelike back 8 or 9 feet high, giving a total length of 20 feet. One of the common animals in equa torial South America and in Central America it the lizard, iguana, which at tains a length of A or 5 feet aud is con sidered a large lizard, but it was a pyg my when compared to au ancestor that once wandered over England and vari ous portions of tho world. A number of years ago some workingmeu were exca vating and blasting iu a quarry near Maidstone, England, wheu some hones were uncovered that caused profound astonishment on the part of the finders. Tho skeleton was perfect, aud as it was lifted out, bone by bone, their amaze ment increased, and the news was spread all over the country, attracting large numbers of people. When the bones were placed iu their proper position, they were found to be the skeleton of a gigsutio lizard that when alive must have been three times as balky as the largest living elephant and stood upon its hind legs like a kangaroo, tearing down branches from the highest trees. Such an animal was a slow mover and sluggish sud mutt have fallen au easy prey to tbe human hunters, if they ex isted. The marine giants were eveu more bizarre and remarkable than the land forms. If wo can imagine tbe little igu ana lengthened out to 80 feet, its back pines changed to broad finlike objects, we form some idea of tbe appearance of one of tho small dinosaurs, Stegosaurus ungulatufl, one of tbe most unoanny and remarkable creatures ever found. It is called tho plsted lizard, and tbe best skeleton was found ou the eastern flank of the Rooky Mountains. Some of tbe plates with which this armored lizard were protected were two or three feet in diameter and tho spines over two feet in length. From the fart that tho bind limbs wcro tho laigest.it is evi dent that this straugeci-eutvre could lift itself up sud sit like a kangaroo, rest ing upon its powerfnl tail, which, with Its euoriuont spines, must have been n terrible weapou. A giant from America b id a fckull that measured eight feet in length. Al most over the eyes were two latere horns, a third placed over tbo nose. 1 he great length of the skull was given by a huge crest that was protected by u ridge ot long plates. The mouth of the tricera tops was protected by a lioruy beak. Iu life it must have presented a formid able appetrauce, with a body clumsy and low like that of a hippopotamus, a long tail like au alligator's, its head calling to mind the rhinoceros. This monster was 23 feet in length aud must have been one of the strangest animals of its time. Philadelphia Press. Leeaona For School Do y.

The intimate relation between firo and air wat early recognised, aeeing that experience soon taught that air was necessary for fire. The experiment of burning u candle in a closed vessel, now so familiar to every schoolboy, is a very old oue, and the influence of a blast of air on a furnace had been probably no ticed from a very remote period. Dy tome it was affirmed to be the food of fire, while by others the tame belief wss embodied in the phrase, "Air nourishes fire," Again, it wss long ago observed that niter, a substance well known to the chemical philosophers of the past, could produce intense ignition. It was hence inferred that, since niter possessed this property, it necessarily followed that the two substances resembled each other in composition. According to Robert Boy It. the air contained "volatile ni ter," while Lord Baoon held that air contained a "volatile, crude and windy spirit," and thunder and lightning were supposed to be due to the preeenoe of minute particles of this niter diffused through air. Tbe important bearing of such obser vations is due to tbe fact that oxygen gas, which is one of the chief constitu ents of air and the one to which it owes its power of supporting combustion, also forms tbe Isrgest elementary con stitneut of niter and is likewise tbe source of tbe power possessed by that body of supporting combustion. The sction of heat on metals in csus ing them to lose their metallic luster bad alto not escaped notice, and Cardan, a philosopher wbo lived during the six teenth century, iu noticing the increase in weight that lead undergoes when bested in air, attributed it to the gas in the air, which feeds flsme and which rekindles a body presenting an ignited poiut. Scottish Review. LAUNDRY CHARACTERS. Too DIAce.lt For the Captain to lt the Right End of Hla Name. Captain Thomas S. Smith of East One Hundred and Twenty-fourth street, who is somewhat of a philologist, had an amusing experience iu trying to analyze certaiu Chinese characters. It appears that when Chang Lee located his laun dry in Harlem, the captain was his first customer. As the acquaintance grew Chang Loo strained the red tape laun dry laws aud did not issue the usual ticket to the captain, but called at his apartment every Mouday for his laun dry aud returned it on Thursday in a package marked with hieroglyphics. "Is that my uume?" anked the cap tain of Chang as he pointed at the Chi nese characters shortly after the laundry delivery plan was inaugurated. "Yes. He you name. See?" Tbe enptain didn't see, but set at work to do so, and for several week studied the writing that Chang Leo brought to bim ou each returning Thurs day. He searched the libraries for such Chinese literature and lexicons as they held, examined laundry tickets and read tho signs in Mott street in the hope of being able to learn how Chang Lee's charsctert conveyed the idea of tbe name of Smith, but he made an utter failure. Finally he decided to appeal to Chang Lee. "Is that my name?" he asked tbe laundry man on the occasion of his next visit. "Yes." "Can you tell me how you get Smith out of such a looking scrawl?" "No, not Smith. He say 'Captain.' Call you captain. That your name. See?" answered tbe Chinaman as he pointed at the characters, with an ex pression that showed surprise at tbe cap tain's iguorsnce. New York Herald. Her Proof. The late Dr. Thomson, archbishop of York, when he was bishop of Glouces ter, suffered from toothache, and by medical advice resorted to narcotics to relieve tbe pain.

He opened it in the street and read his appointment to tho see of York. Instead of visiting tho dew tor he hastened back to communicate the surprising nsws to his wife. "Zoel Zoef'he exclaimed. "What do you think kat happened? I am arch bishop of York." "There, there 1" rejoined the wife. "What did I tell you? You've been tak ing that horrid narcotic again and are quite out of your head.
