Iluliert sort's life of I'.!suiart'k throw Inter tsting light on the methodical way In which liiwniiirck worked nut his "tale policies. It concern the negotiations opened between Kruno and Aii-trlu after IStK. for an alliance niMlnt Prussia. Fmperor Francis Joseph had emerged from the Seven Weeks' war desirous of revenge and with Mibstnn tlnl forces still Intact. Niipuleon met Francis J.se.h at Salzburg, nml a few weeks lat'T the Austrian rinporor trnv eltxl to FniiKf with h! military Ktilte und gnve nnlcra that tin? imperial train slimilil stop nowhere on (Jermiin soil, ali1. In partlculiir. Unit It utmiiM uks tlie SiMitli Ceiiuan courts at nik'lit in ortlcr to avoid emliarniKsini; Interviews. Nothing uiarreil the nioiifirch's peace of minil tiniil, in the ilcai! of nlk'lit, the train spproached the flernian frontier near linden linden ; there It suddenly came to a ntnndstlll. The aide-decamp, on Inquiring for the reason, was shown a lonely figure wrapped In a dark military clonk standing In a pouring rsiu. The stranger wanted to speak to the Emperor Francis Joseph. Who was he? It was King William of Prussia ! Thus, on a dark September night In 1807, did the emperor of Austria and the king of Prussia meet for the first time since Konlggrntz. The interview lasted several hours and took place In the rear carriage of the Imperial train. What pnsssod Is not known, but the writer is satisfied that William of Prussia asked Francis Joseph not to betrny the German cause, and warned him of the forthcoming Franco-German war. Ou reaching Paris Emperor Fran cis Joseph proved ndumiint to the most tempting offers of alliance. The Incident remained a secret; n few loeni papers referred to I. as merely a slight mishap to the imperial train! Youth's Companion. liriFl&S TRIALS OF ISRAEL The Only Kid," Song Story in Pass over Services, Believed to Havt That Significance. Some commentators ny that "The House That JH'-k Iiuilt" i only a Jingle taken from "Chad Gadyoh." or The Only Kid," a nursery doggerel, which Inter lecaine a Jwlh legend, observes the iM-troit News. It has found its way into the "llngodnli," the Jewixh book used tlie first two nights of the piissover service of the Jewb-h .people. After the service Is over- und the dinner eaten, the father Kings aloud. 'The Only Kid." with his chil dren following him. Then he trans lates It Into F.ngllsta or Yiddish for those of the family wlw do not under stand Hebrew. ' -The (.inly Kid" tells of a kid eat en by a cut ; of a dog which bit the rat; of a stick that smote the dog; of a fire that burned the stick. Then It tells of water that extinguished the fire; of an ox that drank the water; of a butcher who killed the ox; of the angel of death who kille't the butcher, mid finally of God who killed the angel. The legend Is supposed to rep resent Isrnel's trials, with Israel cast as "The Only Kid" and the butcher, the cat, dog, fire and the stick as his tormentors, who are in turn killed by God. "The Only Kid has a swing nnd lilt to It resembling "The House That Jack Iiuilt," which gives rise to the belief that the latter is copied from It. Some say the Jewish legend is an old Ger man ballad sprung from a French song. BROUGHT BACK PYGMY H1FP0 Hunter Spent Weary Months In Jun gles to Prove That the Species Realty Existed.

It might have con vinced the world, only it arrived in a dying condition, and perished before It could be exhibited. After that, iwo ple took to doubting It again, and considered the one recorded specimen ns a freak. But Carl Hagetiback, the famous animal man, made up his mind, at last, that the pygmy hippo could be, and should be. introduced to man. He sent an Intrepid hunter. Schoin burgk, after It, and Schomburgk. after spending a year and a half In the jun gle, reappenred with three pygmy beasts, two of which were at once brought to the New York zoo and placed on exhibition.

JYLininQf JJirGCtOry Great nrltnln and Ireland were known KJ liic riviui iiPeiiillloil ol iiie ui le nnnlc Islands, while the former was designated by that particular name of Albion or Alwlon, and the latter by that of Ierne, louernla or F.rln. Cae sar does not use the word Albion; his nuint for Kiiglund was Britannia. I'llny says: "The nntne of the Island was 'Albion,' the whole set of Islands being culled Britannic." The word "Albion" la still the only name by which the Gaels of Scotland designate that country; and the word signifies In the Gaelic language, white or fair Island. The word "alii" Itself Is not now In use In Gaelic, but Is tirobnbly the same root that we find In the Lnt ln adjective "nl-bus," and In the word "Alps." The name of Albion was prob ably given to England by the Gaels of the opposite const, who could not fall to he struck by the chalky cliffs that characterized the nearest part of Kent. . Some authors derive it from Albion, son of Neptune by Abphritlte, who according to the fabulous story went Into Britain, established a king' doni and first Introduced astrology and the art of building ships, fie wns killed ut the mouth of the Ulione with stones thrown by Jupiter, been use he op posed the passage of Hercules. Old Chronicle Shows That Members of First Congress Regarded Them selves Very Seriously. It Is curloue to note that the flrt of American congresses wns much more jealous of Its dignity and Its fair fame than were most of Its suc cessors. An ancient record owned by a Cleveland man shows that in the summer of 3776 one Arthur Thomas was mobbed and maltreated and chased to his home for saying "ye congress be damned!" At about the same time seven Philadelphia trades men who refused to accept the new continental currency, authorized h.v congress, were proclaimed enemies of the protesting colonies and cut oft from all trade or intercourse with the community. , Then n loose-tongued Tory, a prom inent man In the most prominent city In Atuerlcn, spoke profanely of con gress and wished the continental pow der wagons -would blow up nnd was rushed to jail to save him from the tndlgnnnt mob of patriots. "These and divers others," says the old chronicle, "were taught to hold civil tongues In their heads, and they were taught, too, that the men of the colonies were In deadly earnest and those who were not with them were against them, and would perforce b regarded as enemies and treated ns such. And In time they did grow more careful." Tar VIRGINIA LOUISE MINING COM. PANY. Incorporated under the laws of the State ot Nevada.

Mouth-talk or brain-talk which kind do you chiefly use during a busi ness cnll or conference? "I can't see half ns many men as I could see or ns 1 should like to see during the day because my cullers, once they get In to see me, wnste my time with Incon sequential talk," said a busy execu tive recently. "Consequently, my sec retary Is under Instruction .to admit only such persons as she thinks I must see." If you make a business call know beforehand what you are going to present and how. Don't waste time In nonessentials and trivialities. Fix the objective of your talk before you cull. It may be a yes-or-no decision; It may be a promise merely to consider your proposition ; It may be the fixing of a specific date when you can go Into the matter In detail. Whatever your objective Is, work toward it as rap idly as you can; nnd when you have reached It pick up your hat and say "Good-by." This Is one of the surest ways of making a favorable impres sion. l'ace Student. otlce of Application for Permlsaloa te nnroprinte the Public Waters of Ike State of .Nevada. Application No. 6874.

The following story is told of the late Joaquin Miller, the "poet of the Sierras." A certain club desired the poet to address an annual meeting for which an elaborate program had been prepared. The secretary wrote a letter to Miller, telling hlra of the purpose of the gathering and request lnir his co-operatlou. In due time there came an answer from the poet It was In his own hand nnd covered four pages. In vain the secretary puz tled over the niauuscript. He passed it on to the president, the board of di rectors nnd the members in turn, but all failed to decipher the scrawl. The question before the club was, "Has Miller accepted or has he declined?" The secretary Anally sent the follow ing note to the poet: "My. Dear Mr. Miller Your letter received, but I have been unable to determine wheth er you have accepted or declined our invitation. If you will be present on the date mentioned, will you kindly make' a cross at the bottom of this letter? If It will be Impossible for you to appear, will you kindly draw a circle?" In due time the letter came back, but the secretary could not de cide whether the poet had drawn a cross or a circle! Early Indian Agriculture. When the white men first arrived In this country they found an aboriginal population mainly sedentary and agri cultural. The Indians were mostly fanners, peacefully disposed nnd dwell ing In villages. Predatory and unscrupu lous, nfter the manner of his kind, the Intruding Caucasian drove them to war and forced them to adopt a roving and unsettled mode of existence. Corn was their prinlcpal crop a ce real unknown to Europe. How ex tensively they grew It may he judged from the fact that In 1CS5 the British destroyed 12,000 acres of maize plant ed by the Senecns. The Indians of pre-Colurabiari days pursued agriculture on a co-operative plan. Large fields of corn were made up of hundreds of Individual fields. The squaws stirred the fruitful earth and planted the grain. At harvest time the men and boys helped to gath er tne ripe ears. . he public waters of the State of Ne vada, Such appropriation is to be made from Meadow Valley Wash, at a point In the NE4 of NE, Sec. 3', T.

I was visiting my brother, who Is a country minister, nnd one day he asked me to be a witness ut the wedding of a couple who hud Just come in. The bride was tall and heavy, while the bridegroom was much undersized. The minute the ceremony was over, the bride grabbed the minister, and gave him a resounding kiss, then fluus her anus about the bridegroom and fairly lifted him from the floor in her embrace. Turning to me, she said In a stage whisper, "Ain't he cute? I married him because he is so much smaller than me, and he's six years younger, too, so I can mannge him. I've always been boss, and I always mean to be.' Strange to say, upon Inquiring about this couple some five years later, found that they were nn exceedingly happy nnd prosperous pair.

At the northeast corner of the Great Pyramid of Cheops is a stone bigger and more symmetrically cut than any other In that gigantic Structure. It Is supposed to have been meant as a cornerstone." . . Thi practice of laying cornerstone for important buildings is certainly very ancient, and many very old ones have yielded most interesting relics coins, documents, etc. placed within them evidently as memorials likely to be Instructive to subsequent gen erations. The Great Pyramid, which was de signed as a tomb for a monarch, was expected to endure forever, and so Its cornerstone could not have been ex pected to contain any such memorabilia. "Farm" That Raises Jewels. The island of the Holy Ghost, Lower California, has the only farm in the world which .sows and reaps a crop of Jewels. Through artificial propaga lion nnd care pearls are actually raised there In the San Gabriel cove. In their natural condition the pearl "beds nre scattered and the oysters are prey to many submarine foes, but on this farm they nre protected , by a substantial masonry dike which walls off a portion of the bays, reaching above high-water mark. Openings admit the free passage of the sea water, but are guarded by heavy screens. The bot tom of this segregated area wns cleared of nil growth and paved with rock brought from the mainland and laid by divers. Here the pearl oysters are cultivated Just as edible oysters are. .
