IXamc Rumor has it on good
authority that Mr Geo Brulay
has gone North for machinery
to establish a paper mill at
Rio GranJe his beautiful
sugar plantation just six miles
below Brownsville The Her

may be no mistake about the
matter There is no reason
why such an enterprise should
not prove a paying one With
the abundant cheap labor at
hand Mr Brulay should suc
cessfully compete with foreign
manufacturers and control the
entire paper trade on both sides
of the river for several hundred
miles up the river

Tho Lost Vein of Colorado still
eludes the eager prospector Behind
it range tho incidents of one of the
most touching love stories overwrit
ten In tho early sixties Amos Al
bright went to Colorado to seek his
fortune leaving his wifo and chil
dren on an Illinois farm His health
began to fail soon after his arrival in
Colorado and to maLo matters
worse came distressing news from
home for to make tho jonrnoy to
tho goldfiolds he liad borrowed
money from a rich neighbor in for
mor days an unsuccessful suitor for
his wifos hand and tho vtito wrote
that their creditor now threatened
to foreclose his loan and drive her
and her children from their home
Tho news made Albright desporata
He sold a portion of his scanty be
longings exchanged tL3 money for
provisions and set out alone for tho
mountains He was sick unto death
but desperation nerved him on Ho
reached tho mountains turned from
the trail and began prospecting on
unbroken ground but day after day
disappointment alono attended his
efforts In a fortnight his provi
sions wero gone and ho saw that only
starvation or retreat lay before him
One weary day sundown found him
sitting on a heap of drift at tho baso
of a groat rock He was fearfully
hungry and weariness and tho cold
winds of the mountains bitterly op
pressed him Tiicncamo a discovery

Albright sprang up and set to work
with feverish energy and tho unim

bright moonlight night and ho la
bored without pause until sunrise
When morning camo ho had mined

vein ho had discovered was a true

distance Within his grasp lay a for

again set out for his claim Within
a month ho had mined enough silver
to load a train Moreover ho had
traced tho fissure to its origin in tho
hills and satisfied himself that ho
was tho owner of ono of tho riches
claims in Colorado Then a hemor
rhage struck him downand it w 3 by
a miraclo that blind and staggering
ho readied Denver alive As soon
as ho had gained sufficient strength
he set out for his homo in Illinois
As yot though eagerly importuned
to do so ho had revealed to no ono
tho location of his claim Ho reached
homo only to find that his wifo and
children had been driven from their
homo by his creditor and to die iu

CORSICA AND ITS PEOPLE

A lofty mountain ridge divides tho
island into eastern and western dis
tricts The forraur is gontler in its
slopes and morofertile Looking ai
it does toward Italy it was in the
middle ages closely bound in inter
course with that peninsula Richer
in its resources than tho other part
it was moro open to outside influ
ci cos and for this reason freer in iLi
institutions Tho rugged western
division had come more completely
under tho yoke of feudalism having
close affinity in sympathy and some
relation in blood with tho Greek
Roman Saracenic and Teutonic race
elements in France and Spain Tho
communal administration of tho
eastern slope however prevailed
eventually in tho western aa well
and tho differences of origin wealth
and occupation though at times oc
casioning intestine discord wero ca
nothing compared with tho common
characteristics which knit tho peopla
of tho ontiro island into ono national
organization as much n unit as was
their territory by reason of its in
sular situation and in spite of ita
mountain spine
Tho people of this small common
wealth were in tho main of Italian
blood Somo slight connection with
tho mother land they still main
tained in tho relations of commerco
and by the education of their pro
fessional men at Italian Bchools
While a comparatively fow support
ed themselves as tradesmen or sea
farers the mass of tho population
was dependent for a livelihood upon
agriculture As a nation therefore
they had long ceased to follow tho
course of genoral European develop
ment Thoy had been successively
tho subjects of Greece Romo and
the caliphate of tho emperor and of
tho ropublic of Pisa Their latest
master was tho Genoeso republic
which had now degenerated into an
untrustworthy oligarchy
United to that stato originally by
terms which gave tho island n
speaker or advocate in tho Geno
ese senato and recognized tho mosi
cherished habits of a hardy natural
minded and primitive people they
had little by little been left a prey
to their own faults in order that
their unworthy mistress might rule
thereby with less exertion Agricul
turo languished and tho minute sub
division of arable land finally ren
dered it profitless Among a people
who aro isolated not only as island
ers but also as mountaineers old in
stitutions aro particularly tenacious
of lifo That of tho vendetta or of
blood revenge with its accompany
ing clanship never disappeared from
Corsica In tho centuries of Genoeso
rulo tho carrying of arms was wink
ed at quarrels becanio rife and of
ten family confederations embrac
ing a considerable part of the conn
try wore arrayed ono against tho
other in lawless violence The feu
dal nobility few in number wore
unrecognized and failed to cultivato
tho industrial arts in tho security of
costly strongholds as their clas3 did
elsowhere while the fairest portions
of land not yot held by them wero
gradually absorbed by tho monaster
ies which tho Genoese favored as
likely to render easier tho govern
mont of a turbulent people Tha
human animal however throve Of
medium stature and powerful mold
with black hair and piercing eyes
with well formed agilo and hinowy
limbs endowed with courage and
other primitivo virtues tho Coriican
wascverywhere sought as n soldier
and could bo found in all tho armies
