A Very Bad Bargain,
That figures are sometimes wonder
ful things is illustrated by the follow
ing actual occurrence in a nearby college
town a number of years ago: A student
in the university was a member cf an
eating club of 12 members which regu
larly patronized a certain little hostelry.
He was lucky enough one day to become
the recipient of a legacy amounting to
about $1,000, and, showing the sum to
the hotel keeper, agreed to give it to
him on condition that the sum be ac
cepted as payment for meals eaten by
the students until every possible combi
nation of the seating arrangement* of
the boys had been exhausted, the
crder
of seats occupied by the boys to be
changed at each meal.
The hotel keeper thought it a most
profitable deal, but a friend of his with
a mathematical turn proved to him
that it really would mean ruin, as no
less than 479,001,600 arrangements
were possible, or a total of $5,748,019,
200 individual meals, which, at the rate
of 10 cents per meal, would represent a
value of the tidy sum of §547,801,920.
The contract was carried out for the
four years cf the boys' student life,
when it really drove the hotel man from
business, as reckoned on a basis of $2
per week per student the hotel man had
lost §3,992, while the students had only
eaten 52,410 individual meals and had
still a credit of 5,748,966,784 meals, or
enough to give them three meals a day
for 438,718a years. —Philadelphia Rec

Everything Leaks.
Ordinary tumblers will hold water
because the globules of water are too
big to squeeze through the glass. But
glass is as full of holes as a sponge, and
air blows right through it, because the
specks of air are smaller than the holes.
Put a bell into a big globe of glass,
seal up the vessel, pump out all the air,
then ring the bell inside, and you hear
nothing. There is not air enough in the
globe to carry a sound. But lay the
globe aside for a month or so, and no
matter how carefully you have sealed
up the neck you will find that you then
can hear the bell when you ring it. Air
has got into that globe—enough any
way to carry a sound has leaked in
through the substance of the glass.
The ordinary incandescent lamp is a
glass globe with the air pumped out,
and after a few months sufficient air
leaks through to dim the light which
comes from the thread of electrified
charcoal inside.
We can make plenty of vessels to
hold water, but nothing has been made
which will hold air without any leak
age. The air sneaks in through holes
which are too email for the human mind
to imagine.
In fact, everything leaks.—Answers.
A Lesson In Patience.
When the eminent botanist Professor
Aitman. of Glasgow was a small boy,
he had the present of a silver bit,
whereupon his mother was so worried
with questions as to what he should do
with it that she exclaimed, "Really,
you had better go to Thomas Elliot's (a
well known pharmacist) and buy six
pence worth of patience."
Down the street marched the lad and
demanded of the chemist, "Mr. Elliot,
please give me sixpence worth of pa
tience.
Mr. Elliot, taking in the situation at
a glance, said: "Certainly, my boy
there's a chair. Just sit down and wait
till you get it."
Professor Aitman's endeavor to pur
chase patience was a great success. It
made a deep impression on the lad and
was one of the factors of his success in
life.
A SoldIer*H Blanket.
This story, told of Sir Ralph Aber
crombie, the victor of Aboukir, shows
that even in death he did not forget
consideration for others. After the bat
tle at which he was mortally wounded
he was carried on board a ship, and a
soldier's blanket was placed under his
head to ease it. He felt the relief and
asked what it was.
"Only a soldier's blanket," was the
reply.
"Whose blanket is it?"
"Only one of the men's."
"I wish to know the name of the
man."
"It is Duncan Roy's, of the Forty
second, Sir Ralph."
"Then see," said the dying general,
"that Duncan Roy gets his blanket
this very night."
He MiKlit Have Married.
Fitz-Greene Halleck never married,
yet, as Mr. Howe reminds us in his
"American Bookman," he could not
have been without attractions, for a
certain superior lady is reported to have
declared:
"If I were on my way to church to
be married, yes, even if I were walking
up the aisle, and Halleck were to offer
himself, I'd leave the man I had prom
ised to marry and take him."
To this, perliaj)s, should be joined his
epigram, written for a young lady who
had asked for his autograph:
Thi'ru wanted but this drop to fill
The wifuless poet's imp of fame.
Hurrah! There lives lady still
Willing to tuko his name.

In describing the uiniitiardinent of
Morro Castle at Santiago during the
Spanish-American war a war artist who
was in Cuba tells how he and some
newspaper men managed to attain a
point of vantage near the Texas:
A few days previous a rival newspa
per dispatch boat, the recipient of cer
tain courtesies with which we had not
been favored, had been carrying minor
telegrams to the flagship from one point
or another, and she was in the habit of
sailing in among the fleet, with an air
of importance and displaying the sig
nal, "We have dispatches for the ad
miral.
This, of course, prevented the vessels
of the fleet from making her come out
side and enabled her to approach the
flagship to deliver her communications.
Beforo leaving Port Antonio we had
taken in a large supply of fresh fruit,
including bananas, so it occurred to one
of our very alert and original newspa
per men that we should hoist the sig
nal, "We have bananas for the Texas
on board.''
This we acted upon, and our vessel
was allowed to glide in without inter
ference, until we reached the Texas.
Once alongside, Captain Philip hailed
fcs with delight, accepted our little gift
and told us that a bombardment was
very shortly to take place. We thought
ourselves in great luck at receiving this
news and made outside the lines, keep
ing as near to the squadron as we were
permitted.
Reputation.
In the "Memoir" of Lord Bramwell
Is a telling illustration of the fact that
reputation clings to us, even after many
years. The great jurist as a little lad
became a pupil at Dr. Reddy's school,
where the late Baron Channell, three
fears his senior, was head boy.
Channell read for the law, and the
iwo school friends scarcely met again
intil, years afterward, Mr. Channell
beld a brief in a certain case at Maid
stone assizes.
Consultation with the solicitors
showed a flaw in the pleadings drawn
by them. It was of a sort which in
those days would prove fatal to the
case. The solicitors could only hope
that it would not be discovered.
"Who is against us?" asked Chan
nell.
"Oh," was the reply, "a Mr. Bram
well. Nobody ever heard of him be
fore.
"Then, gentlemen," said the advo
cate, "we're done. I was at school with
that gentleman."
He was right. Bramwell was too
clever for them, and they were "done"
indeed.
Robbed The Grave.
A startling incident in whioli Mr. John Oli
ver, of Philadelphia, was the subject is nar
rated by him as follows: "I was in a most
dreadful conditioa. My skin was almost yellow
eyes sunken, tongue coated, pain continually
in back and sides, no appetite—was gradually
growing weaker day by day. Three physicians
had given me up. Fortunately a friend advised
trving Electric Bitters, and to my great jov
and surprise the first bottle made a decide'd
improvement. I continued their use for three
weeks and am now a well man. I know they
saved my life and robbed the grave of another
victim." Only 50c, guaranteed, at Chas. W.
Houston's drug store. 5
Tie CrlcKet'a Chirp.
The variation of speed in the chirp
ing of crickets depends so closely on
temperature that the height of the
thermometer may be calculated by ob
verving the number of chirps in a min
ute.
At 60 degrees F. the rate is 80 chirps
a minute, at 70 degrees F. 120 per min
ute, and the rate increases four chirps
to the minute with a. change of one
degree.
Below a temperature of 50 degrees
F. the cricket is not likely to make any
sound.
The value of all the gold, silver, cop
per, iron, coal and lead mined every
year in America is exceeded by the
products of the forests. Even the com
bined wheat and cotton crop is less in
value than the forest products.

Wright of a Lion.
What does a lion weigh Those who
know the look of the king of beasts best
and how small bis little body really is
will probably come farthest from the
truth. About 300 to 350 pounds is a
usual estimate. But a full grown lion
will tip the scales at no less than 500
pounds. Five hundred and forty pounds
is the record for an African lion. His
bone is solid and heavy as ivory.
The tiger runs the lion very close. A
Bengal tiger, killed two years ago by
an English officer, scaled 520 pounds.
A tiger this size has, however, consid
erable more muscular strength than the
biggest lion.

Gold Strike Turns Out Well.
OUSTEH, S. D., May 22.—The remark­
able strike of free gold made nine miles
southwest of this city last Friday by
Lee and Charles Oarr, two ranchers, is
turning out to be better than at first re
ported. The ore vein is about 14 inches
wide and has been stripped for a dis
tance of 60 feet. From one place at the
intersection of two points nuggets as
large as hickory nuts have been taken
out and large chunks of rock almost
solid with gold stringers have been
broken loose.

A Terrible Affair.
Monday night train number nine
ty-one ran over Thomas Thompson,
about three-quarters of a mile this
side of Wiota, killing him instantly
and badly mangling his body,
almost to the extent of not being
recognizable. The train men were
not aware of the accident until they
reached this city, when they found
the pilot blood-be-spattered and
carrying sliredy of clothing. Word
was sent back to Wiota, and Mar
shal John Henry and several others
went out along the track and found
the remains. One arm and one leg
were entirely severed from the body
and one hand could not be found.
The entire back portion of the skull
had been torn away by the wheels,
and the face so cut up that it was
at first thought to be another man.
The passenger train going east at
9:50 must have, also, run over the
body. Mr. Thompson's home is a
few miles south east of Wiota, and
he leaves two daughters to mourn
his untimely death. The coroner's
jury, which held an inquest over
the body, Tuesday afternoon, ren
dered a verdict that the deceased
cames to his death by being acci
dentally run over by the Rock Island
freight train number ninety-one.
Mr. Thompson was in Wiota and
vicinity during the day and had
been drinking quite freely and it is
thought that while under the influ
ence of liquor he got off his road
and laid down on the track. Just
how it happened is not and proba
bly never will be known.—Atlantic

Deafness Cannot Be Cured
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased part of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eu
stacian Tube. When this tube gets in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
an imperfect hearing, and when it en
tirely closes deafness is the result, aud
unless the inflamation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed
forever nine cases out of ten are caus
ed by catarrh, which is nothing but an
inflamed condition of the mucous sui
face.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any cause of Deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars free.

Homeward Movement of Volunteers*
WASHINGTON, May 23.—The war de­
partment is proceeding on the theory
that by the end of July not a volunteer
soldier will be left in Manila, and Gen
eral Otis' report that the transport War
ran has arrived, advances the time
when the homeward movement of the
volunteer troops will begin. Already
I notice has been issued that mail for the
First California and Second Oregon
volunteor regiments should not be sent
to Manila, but to San Francisco.
To Consumptives.
As an honest remedy Foley's Honey
and Tar does not hold out false hopes
in advanced stages, but truthfully
claims to give comfort and relief in the
very worst cases, and in the early
stages to effect a cure. W. A. Hamler.
