A Powerful Frenchman Who failed a Rail, road Train An Herculean liostonlan Whose Cnlef Amusement Consisted In Uorlnu; Boles with His Head. "The most powerful man I ever saw was a Zulu called 'Spotlot,' who worked i.ext to me when we were digging the Panama canal," remarked Patrolman Conklin. "What in other men was a strenuous effort was to him the merest child's play. He saved the company a great deal of money in blasting powder alone. Any thing he could get a firm grip on had to come. I have soon him toss a twenty-ton rock out of the ditch as easily as Patrolman Davis can juggle a Wienerwurst." "When I was in Pareo," said Patrol man Asch, "I saw a man used Instead of a locomotive on one of the railroads. He would be coupled to a train and would pull it at a good, fair speod. Of course, he didn't make the time that an engine would make, but if my memory serves me right, he made about fifteen miles an hour. I had quite a talk with the superintendent of the road, and he was much pleased with the experiment. He said the company would very likely use men to haul its trains exclusively. It was much cheaper and the danger from collision was not great. This would make up for the lack of speed. The eJr1 pense of shoeing and feeding the man was considerable, but still he was cheap, as compared with the average loco motive. "A funny thing happened on the road a few days before I left. The man-engine drank too much wine, and in stag gering from one side of the track to the uther kept derailing the cars, and the entire traffic of the road was delayed for several hours, or until the engine got sober enough to go ahead. A scheme like this would be a good thing for this country, I think." "In 1850 I was In San Francisco," chipped in Patrolman Jim Pope. "The gold fever was raging, and every one had exalted ideas of the wealth that was to be found in the earth. I was much younger than I am now though you would hardly think it to look at me and, like every one else, I went to the moutains to dig gold. I had a peculiarly-formed pick-axe which I used . with great suuaoss. In the point of the pick axe was placed a dynamite cartridge, and every time I would sink the pick six inches into the rock, the cartridge would explode, thus blasting out the stone and saving a great deal of extra work. I had been picking away for about two months on. top of a mountain' ad had made quite a hole. The yield was pretty fair, and I had about 818,000 in gold nuggets laid away. One day I went down into my mine and was work ing away like a good fellow. Suddenly the stone floor slowly raised for a dis tance of two feet. I yelled to my part ner to haul me up, tor I didn't know what was coming. 'Don't be alarmed, Wend,' said a voice under the stone. 'I'll be oat in a minute and then 111 talk to you.' Sure enough a head popped up and a man slowly drew him self through the aperture. '"Did you say howdy?' said the stranger with a laugh. 'I know I said howdy. Pretty tight squeeze, but I made it.' Of course you understand, mends, I was considerably rattled. "'Who are you and where did you come from?' I asked. " 'Before furnishing the required dia gram and accompanying explanation let jne inquire if you have any chewing to bacco about you?' said the stranger. I handed over a slab of 'black strap' plug, od after helping himself liberally the stranger handed the plug back, remark ing: 'That's good stuff. Well, as to who 1 am, I'm not ashamed to tell you. My name Is Sardanapalus Boiling, Esq. My home is in Boston. You needn't tell me your name, for I know you. You are Jim. Pope, of Indianapolis. ,1 suppose you want to know how I came here. Nelli I have no objection to telling you. About three months ago I started a tun uel at the side of the mountain, think ln that I would find plenty of ore. I wet with poo success, and after I had Kerne in about half a mile I made op my mind to abandon my claim, when some thing seemed to tell me to bore up in tead of down. I thought it wouldn't do THE PIOCHE WEEKLY RECORD. VOL. XXXIX. PIOCHE, NEV.. SATURDAY JUNE 14. 1890. NO. 13 any narm 10 try it just lor luck, and so I commenced. I had taken out a good deal ol ore when I heard you pounding up above me, and I concluded to come on and join you, and here I am.' " 'But where are your tools?' I asked, in astonishment. 'Tools?' exclaimed Mr. Boiling, of Boston. 'I had no tools. I did all my tunneling with my hands, head and feet. I would just put my head against the earth, whirl around and have a hole about to my shoulders, and then I would tear out the earth or rock, or whatever it might be, with myhands! Sometimes I would lay down on my back and kick a hole with my heels, but I didn't like to do that very much be cause I would get dirt in my eyes.' Well, to make a long story short, thejnining firm of Pope & Boiling was formed, and we worked together for three years. We became very wealthy, established aline of steamships between San Francisco and Cape Cod, and when Boiling died he was worth 810,000,000. The money I made I've got yet." , And then, says the Indianapolis News, the Ananias Club adjourned. Tricks In Parlor Electricity. A very simple apparatus for obtain ing an electric spark is made by a Ger man physicist, says the Arkansaw Traveler. Round the center of a com mon lamp-chimney is pasted a strip of tin foil, and another strip pasted from one end of the chimney to within a quarter of an inch of this ring. Then a piece of silk is wrapped around a brush, and the interior of the chimney Is rubbed briskly. In the dark a bright, alectrio spark may bo seen to pass from one piece of tin foil to the other each time the brush is withdrawn from the shlmney. Many other experiments can be tried with this apparatus. PERSIAN STREET SCENES. A Graphic Pen-Picture or Lively Incidents In Teberan Kstar. Mounted cavaliers or grandees, at tended by numerous outriders, produce general consternation when moving pompously througn the bazars in Per sia. Every one darts quickly out of the way of toe mettlesome steeds, which seem to take special pleasure in show ing off wnen half a hundred women and children are almost tinder .their heels. " "' " The ferauches who clear the way for the great man show mercy to no one. Be it dog or donkey, man or woman that comes within the reach of their corbash, or whip, it descends on all alike. Amus ing scenes often occur, and some that ai'e pitiful as well, when- some one gets hit or knocked down. , "Vailed women, with shrieks of laugh ter or cries of pain, fly hither and thither, trying to keep the mantle over their faces in all their hurry, and the yelp of curs mingles with the metallic ring of the Arabian steed when his iron shoe strikes fire from the pavement. Add to this scene embroidered cos tumes and housings of brilliant colors, jeweled weapons, men of haughty mien, Nubian slaves, and the varied parapher nalia of thesurroundingbooths, grouped in the demi-twilight of a bazar on a warm afternoon in June, says a writer in the Homo-Maker, and you have a pict ure offering the chromatic glow and va riety of a Veronese tempered by the low, rich, imaginative tone of a Rembrandt, to which two centuries have added inde scribable depth. , AN ACTOR'S STORY. How Selfishness Added to the Griping Fangs of Hunger. O "Talk about the tips and downs of an actor's life," remarked a veteran player to a Chicago Tribune reporter the other day. "Why, most actors live a life-time in a single season. The swellest ban quet I ever attended and the hardest got meal I secured both came in the same season. The banquet came early in October, -when the Btar celebrated the anniversary of his debut as a star. The latter came the following spring when we were traveling on our trunks from Washington, D. C, to Louisville, Ky. It was an all-day ride, and we knew that we couldn't eat till we could show again. Jamestown was the dinner sta tion, and the manager and I got to talk ing over the prospects for chuck, I conSded to him that I had ten cents in postage stamps; he said that he had a nickel; so we agreed to shake, the rest of the company and feast together. The manager hid himself in the baggage room at the station and I went up-town to a bakery, where I purchased a pie without- combined wealth, and returned to my friend. The switchman's dinner pail hung tempting near by and we opened it; but we hadn't the heart to take more than a couple of pickles from the poor fellow. It was a dainty meal pickles, pie and cake (stoma-chacho). The joke of the whole thing wis that the star, a smooth man, had meanwhile arranged to feed the whole company and give his note for the 'bill. Our own selfish exclusiveness had shut us out." J .
