A MINT FOR MENELEK.
AlfMtalaa Monarch to Make Hie
King Menelek of Abyssinia Is getting
along in the world. First be thrashed
the Mahdlsta. Then be drove tbe Ital- j
Ians out of bis kingdom. Tben be wel<
•omod tbe diplomats of European na
tlons, playing one against another.
Now be Is to bare a mint, says the
New York World. What an advance j
this means may be realised from the
fact that Abyssinia until recently has
been getting along with cubes of rock '
salt for cash. A small amount of coin
minted in France has of late been In i
circulation. Now tbe king will make j
bis own. Consul Masterson of Aden I
reports that be has fared up 110.230 !
pounds of gold for tbe purpose.
There are 400 tons of mint machln- |
ery. It was sold by a Stettin concern
and was landed at Djibouti, East Af
rica, with a competent mechanic to set
It up. Tbe machinery will be transport
ed by rail to New Harrar, about 130
miles, tbe end of tbe road. Thence It
will be transported by caravan to tbe
capital, Addis Abeba, the caravan Jour
ney occupying more than a month.
GIN BUCK" A NEW DRINK.
It la Like * Ricker Except That
Olug-er Al« I* Peed.
Nearly every summer some new drink
la Invented ami becomes popular In the
bars over the country, but ao far this
season none of several new decoctions
that were started out as the summer's
fad In the drinking Use has obtained a
lasting popularity, says the Kansas
City Star. In Virginia, the home of the
mint Julep, an effort was made to super
sede this favorite drink. The new bev
erage was practically the same as the
mint Julep, except that it contained cu
racoa, a cordial. But the new drink
didn't prove popular. Curacoa, howev
er, Is largely used this summer to flavor
About tbe only new drink called for
at the leading hotels In Kansas City Is
the "gin buck." This Is quite popular.
It 1$ composed of the Juice of half a
11ms, a Jigger of dry gin, and then the
glass Is filled up with ginger ale. The
"gin buck" differs from the rickey only
in the use of ginger ale instead of wa
BRIGHT FUTURE FOR INDIA.
Dr. Tbobnrn Sara as ChrUttan Land
It Will Ecllpie PagftD India.
Tbe missionary Institute at Chautau
qua, N. Y., held Its final sessions the oth
er day, says the Philadelphia Press. An
address was given by Dr. A. B. Leon
ard, corresponding secretary of the
missionary society of the Methodist
Episcopal church, on "The Vision of
the Field." Dr. G. Stanley Hall sp^'ce
on "Missionary Work and the Tn^n
lng of Missionaries." In the evening
Dr. James R. Thoburn, Jr., pastor of
the Cavalry church of Allegheny, gave
an Illustrated lecture on "India." He
"Already many of the nations which
■ought to despoil her of her wealth
are seeking to make reparation by car
rying in all the advantages of Chris
tian civilization. The bloodiaet battles
are over, but her conflicts are not en
tirely done. There Is a great contest
now on. It is the struggle between cul
ture and Ignorance, between faith and
•u„ erstitlon. I believe Christian India
will be a f9r more wonderful land than
was pagan India."
The Cap Defender.
Our gallant yacht Reliance
Has nobly borne the test;
Of all the Yankee racers
She's speediest and best.
In breezes strong and flckls.
In smooth and choppy seas.
Shs met her friendly rivals
And vanquished them with ease.
She met the old Columbia,
The yacht with twice won fame.
But that once stanch defender
Was never In the game.
The speedy Constitution
Was also left behind
la rushing snd In drifting
On seas of every kind.
And now the swift Reliance
Is chosen to defend
The trophy that bold Upton
From us desires to rend.
Against the latest Shamrock
Our newest yacht will race.
And both, as we're believing.
Will set a lively pace.
We've heard a lot of boasting
About the Upton boat;
We know Sir Tom regards her
The fastest yacht afloat.
?ut Just the same the spirit*
Of Yanks go soaring up,
lnd a 1 1 are cure that Shamrock
to Uft the cup.
The time fast approaching
For test of every claim.
And soon the rival racers
WUI make their bid for fame.
We on the swift Reliance
Our hopes of triumph pin,
Rut let there be no favors.
And may the best boat win.

VALUE OF MAINE SWAMP.
From Which an
Tramp Expects g 1,500 a Year.
Five year* ago Bob Carley came to
this town as a tramp too 111 to travel,
•ajra a Glenburg (Me.) dispatch to the
Philadelphia Press. After recuperat
ing be spent the winter in catting and
sharing hoop poles, earning a living
and having $10 coming t* him In the
With this be bought ten acres of
alder grown hoop pole swamp and be
gan to burn rough alder wood into
charcoal, which he sold in Bangor. Ha
need the crooked sticks for making
rustic lawn furniture—settees, chain
end rude swing*—all of which found
quick aalet among the summer visitor*
who owned oottagea.
Later In the season ha reaped tons
of cattail flags, the leaves of which
ere uaed by coopen for chinking in
between their new barrel staves and
which sold for $00 a ton, ton times the
gles to making hoop poles.
would grow from the size of a lead j
pencil to four and five Inches In di- j
ameter and be fit for cutting In ten
years. By dividing his land into ten
lota, each containing an acre, and cut
ting off one every year, he could keep
np a succession of fuel and charcoal
for all time.
This summer Carley has built a
house costing nearly $2,000. It Is tin
Ished and paid for, and tbe owner has
money in two banks and Is getting an
Income of $1,500 a year from a strip of
swamp land which was not thought to
be worth returning thanks for and sold
for about enough to pay for making
out the transfer papers.
Just now tbe citizens think the ex
tramp Is one of the -most successful
men In town and have offered to elect
him to the legislature.
