Boston is so well pleased with tho
horseless fire engine which was re cently added to her tiro-lightingequip ment that the Fire Commission has l>laced the order for a similar engine. The Commercial Club, of Mobile, Ala., has appointed a committee of fifty to conduct a campaign of educa tion on the proposition of municipal control of water-works and sewers. England and the United States have decided to get together on the seal question. Their decision is simply a triumph of good, old-fashioned com mon sense, remarks the New York Mail and Express. The trip 011 the Yukon from its mouth to the Klondike is as long as that from New Orleans to Minneapolis. Gentle men who have started with the inten tion of making it in tlatboats before the close of the summer season will please accept condolence in advance. Says the Louisville Courier-Journal: 'Our Paris contemporary, the Figaro, which has been taking a good deul of interest lately in American affairs, now wants to know what we would do iu case of a collision with a really first class Power. We have met some first class Powers iu our time, and the re sults were never like the Fraueo-Ger mau collision of 1870 to Frauce." Isaac E. Adams, only thirty-eight years old aud a few years ago "one of the successful and promising young men iu Chicago," has just been de clared a victim of paresis and sent to an asylum in New York. The road to wealth is an alluring one, philoso phizes the Louisville Courier-Journal, but to travel over it at the pace that kills is to take fearful chances in this world as well as iu the one to come. Ground was broken, recently, iu New York, for the construction of a pneumatic mail service between the city postoffice aud the various sections of Manhattan Island aud Brooklyn. Next to rapid transit this is regarded as tlic most important local improve ment begun recently. The work of collecting the mail matter and convey ing it to the central office is now done by delivery wagons. By the new ser vice the collections will be transmitted through tubing by carriers propelled by the air forced, into the tubes. The carriers are six feet long and will hold about 0000 letters each. It is estimated that they will be able to carry 250,000 letters per hour, and are expected to make the journey between the New York aud Brooklyn office in three and one-half minutes. Representative Hilborn, of Cali fornia, is one of the best-posted men in Congress on the subject of gold min ing, having for years been interested in the business iu California. He said, recently, to a Washington Star reporter that some time before the newspaper stories of the great gold discoveries in j Alaska he had been receiving letters from old miners, who were friends, telling of the immense deposits of gold in tho Klondike country. "I have no doubt," said Judge Hilborn, "that the Klondike discoveries will prove the greatest in the history of the world- From my knowledge of gold mining I should think that there will lie paying quantities of the precious metal to ibe found in Alaska for years to come." Judge Hilborn does not think the rigors of the 'climate [are such as have been portrayed. He said that if 110 had been at his home he would have made a trip to the gold fields merely for the purpose of learning the facts for himself. He believes that the world is 011 the eve oi' a great revival in gold mining. The rush to the Klondike country aud the talk of the rich, finds there will lead prospectors in every part of the country to begin hunting for gold. Many of them will be successful. All over this country where gold has been mined in former years new life will bo taken on. In Southern as well as in Western States gold fields were worked in years past and were abandoned because the quartz did not yield enough to make money. Under new processes quartz which pays a few dollars a ton can be worked with profit. In Judge llil burn's State money is being made out of property quartz paying $2.50 a ton. Improved electrical apparatus has cheapened the work of getting out the precious metal. Mines in California which were deserted years ago are now being reworked with success. "I pre dict," said Judge Hilborn, "that by 1900 more gold will be mined iu Cali fornia than was taken out in the palm? days when the State was made fa mous. Judge Hilborn believes, adds the Washington Star, that the produc tion of gold for the next few years will be so great as to cause a demonetiza tion of the metal. RAIN IN THE rfiVER.

Charlie was attractive looking, very slender, not very tall, with fair hair, and a long, fair, twisted mustache. All his life he had found his chief joy among his horses and his polo ponies, and High-flier was the jewel of his stables. Until he met Kitty, he never had thought it possible that anything could take precedence of High-flier in his heart. Kitty had taken precedence in a number of hearts. She was clothed about as it were with a garment with that intangible quality or gift called style. If she hail put on rags and tatters, they would have at once assumed an air and a grace, but as her papa was amply blessed with this world's goods, she was not called upon to display her magic, and, in stead, glorified the pretty things that clever people on both sides of the world contrived for her. In addition to being stylish, Kitty was pretty, with quantities of soft, dark hair, blue eyes and singularly brilliant teeth. "Don't talk to me about Charlie Earl! 1 hate him!" she said to her most intimate friend, who had essayed to probe her heart the day after the engagement was broken, and the way she rushed into everything that came up for the next three weeks, and Hirted with every man who came near her, and allowed Harry Gibson, who had been in love with her for a year, to devote himself to her, should have convinced tho most skeptical that she cared absolutely nothing for her ex tiauce. Then the races at the Hunt Club came off. Everyone went in her best bib and tucker, aud Kitty, of course, was there. She came driving iu to the Club grounds in her phaeton, dressed all in black—dainty, chiffony, Freneliy black—with a big, feathered picture hat 011 her graceful head. Beside her was Harry Gibson, looking ineffably happy. Charlie Earl was to ride in two of the races-—one for ponies, one for hunters—and he was resplendent iu his pink coat, with a little cap to match, tight white trousers and black boots. Kitty bowed to him with elaborate (nditlerence as lie rode past 011 Lis pony, "Dart," to the first race, and she smiled scornfully with a slightly bored expression while the race was being run, and when Charlie came in far ahead of the other racers. "Charlie does ride well!" exclaimed Gibson, in generous admiration. "Oh, lie is rather a good horseman," said Kitty. "What a sweet pony your 'Kitty' is, Mr. Gibson. Why didn't you ride her in the race?" "Oli, I'm not much to look at on n horse," said Gibson, "and I don't like to make myself ridiculous in—some- I' body's eyes." "Whose? Won't you tell me?" said Kitty, with a languishing glance. "Oh. you know, Kitty!" said Gib son. "Indeed T don't," protested Kitty. "In the eyes of the only girl in all the world I have ever loved," said Gibson, forgetting the little actress and the seven or eight sisters of seven or eight of his friends, and the two or three married women to whom lie had uiade the same statement. "Aud what is her name?" said Kitty, demurely. "Yours!" said Gibson. "Oh!" saiil Kitty, casting down her eyes and trying to blush. | "You won't refuse me?" said Gib , son, his round, blonde face red with ' nervousness and anxiety. said Kitty, so low that he could scarcely hear her, her head still bent. ! Gibson began to pour forth his rapture in adjectives and exclamation ; points. 1 Then the race for hunters began. I "And we're engaged, aren't we, ! Kitty?" said Gibson, ecstatically. I "Yes," Kitty admitted. | "And may I tell?" "As soon as you like." j "And you love me?" j "Why else should I marry you?" 1 said Kitty, with a glance that tried to ■ be arch, and then her eyes returned ! to the Hying figures in 'the race and followed the two in llie lead —Charlie Earl on High-flier and Dicky Tremout 011 hia.big gray mare, Swallow. Swallow was ahead at the first and second hurdles, but at the third High flier was gaining on her, and they rose to it almost simultaneously. Swallow's hind legs caught 011 the top bar, and down she came with a 41iud and crash, knocking against High-flier's front legs, and bringing htofc down be- 1 side her. Dicky was tumbled head over-heels, but jumped up almost in stantly. Charlie was thrown ahead as straight as au arrow, and fell full j length on the track —and did not move. Kitty's hands clinched tight ovei the reins for a second—then with u • loud shriek she gathered up her skirts ! and leaped to the ground. She ran to ! the place where Charlie lay —she forced her way through the crowd that surrounded him, and falling on her knees beside him, she began dabbing helplessly at his face with her hand kerchief. while her tears fell on him. "Charlie! Charlie! Oh, Charlie!' 1 . she wailed, regardless of the staring 1 faces—regardless of everything save that the man she had sworn she hated was apparently dying, or dead. Charlie slowly opened his eyes. "Do you—take—it—back?" he said feebly. " "Yes, oh, yes!" said Kitty. "I never meant it. I loved you all the time!" Charlie sat up with astounding alac- J rity. "I wasn't muclihurt," he said. "M? breath was knocked out of me—but J thought that would get you! Oh, ' Kitty, you darling!" He caught her hands and laughed ; with joyous impudence right in her face—and she laughed with him.—The White Elephant. Ivory in the Yukon Valley. Among the miners to return from the Klondike was John Wilkenson, of Nanaimo, British Colombia. He brought with him $40,000, the result. | of three months' work. While Mr. Wilkenson bus laid the foundation of a fortune, his eye has not been single to gold. He says that large and ex- • ceptionally fine specimens of ivory were found last season solidly imbed- 1 ded in icy gravel. Ivory tusks of mastodons weighing as much as 150 pounds have been found in an excel- I lent state of preservation. Piles and piles of bones have been taken out, and there is every indication that dur ing some prehistoric period large bauds of mastodons grazed over the great plains of the Yukon valley. That was during an age, 110 doubt, when the country was subject to tropical influ ences. There are indications on every hand to show that rank tropical vegetation once covered the greut frosen region of the northwestern part of Alaska. While working one of these claims Mr. Wilkenson found a leg bone of a mas todon covered with flesh. It was taken from a bed of ice, and was after ward sent to the Dominion Museum at Ottawa.—Seattle tWusli.) dispatch to Chicago Tribune. PublUhlujr Book. A large book bindery may hare a capacity of 10,000 hooks a day. The resources of some of these binderies are wonderful. Thero is an instance on record where a publishing house took an order 011 Monday for a cloth covered 12mo volume of 350 pages and actually shipped 2000 copies of the book on the followiug Wednesday. The type was set by machinery for the entire 350 pages before work stopped Monday night. Electrotype plates were made so rapidly that 011 Tuesday morning several printing presses were set in motion. In the meantime covers were made in the bindery, and by Wednesday morning the binders had the book in hand. Two thousund volumes were completed that day, aud the edition of 10,000 was entirely out of the way before Saturday night. In modern book-binding machinery, as in the production of printing presses, America leads the world, and 110 other nation can equal it in the speed and general effectiveness with which all branches of the industry are carried out. —St. Louis Globe Democrat.

Whit- < ney has brought on from the Kooky Mountains to occupy his 8000 acres on October Mountain, about four miles from Leuox, Mass., is creating great interest among the New York people who have summer places in Lenox J anil vicinity. He has secured some of the largest buffaloes in this country and has considerable other wild game from the Rocky Mountains, the only specimens which have ever been brought to the East, except a few which the late Austin Corbiu had up in New Hampshire. They are the finest specimens that could be secured in Montana, Wyoming and along the I * THE ELK ENCLOSURE. 1 range of the Rocky Mountains in that region. His herd of buffaloes numbers thir teen, while his elk aud deer are twice that number. The buffaloes are of especial interest because they have become so rare in this country. Be ginning with the great bull buffalo McKinley, which stands at the head • of the herd, weighing 2000 pounds, down to others weighing 1000 pounds, they are the rarest specimens in Amer ica. The great bull McKinley and the entire herd were brought East with the greatest difficulty. They came in two freight palace cars, in charge of the Adams brothers, who were given the order by Mr. Whitney over a year ago. Some of the buffaloes they raised MR. WHITNEY'S FAVORITE EI.K. themselves. The chief of the herd, McKinley, is six years old and is the ugliest animal that has ever been brought East. He is the chief figure in the buffalo picture and he doesn't allow any biped to come into the en closure without a protest. It was with great difficulty that he was taken out of the car, which he nearly tore to pieces, and was taken up on October Mountain from the Lemx station in an immense crate, drawn by four horses. He excited the greatest in terest all the way, from the time lie was loaded into the car until he got to his destination. The buffaloes are confined in about 800 acres of land surrounded by a fence which is nine feet eight inches high, made of steel wire. McKinley lias tried to get through it several times, but he found in locking horns with it that it has beaten him every time. It has been tested by a twenty-five horse power engine, which has been rushed against it with all its force. Since Mc- Kinley has found that he cannot get through the fence he lias become do cile, and is quite content to stay in the enclosure, which lias the best grass thut can be procured for a herd of buffaloes. THE BOTFALO HERD. x The other buffaloes are becoming used to their new home. There is another bull which weighs only 100 pounds less than HcKinley, but is not as vicious. The whole buffalo herd have wandered about the enclosure with the greatest curiosity. They look about for places where they can escape, but are becomiug contented, ! as the gamekeeper treats them well. , They are, howover, wild, and it is i dangerous to venture near them, and t*o unsafe for any one to go inside the enclosure that it is with the greatest difficulty that pictures could be taken of them. The dozen antelopes have all eloped. As soon as they were put into their thousand acres, surrounded by its wire fence, they rushed away into the thicket, and even the gamekeepers have been unable to find them. Some times of a clear morning glimpses of them have been caught in the dis tance on the rocky hilltop above the forest, but as soon as any one tried to trace them they again disappeared, and are keeping themselves so very quiet that it is impossible to teil | whether all of them have survived or not, but it is probable that they have. They undoubtedly enjoy the wildness of the region, which resembles their Rooky Mountain home, and where they are no more liable to be mo lested than in their own mountain fastnesses. When Mr. Whitney wanted to see his antelopes he was told that they had fed I cleared out. He went out and tried to find them himself, but without success. He had the same experience with a dozen black-tailed deer that were brought on at the same time. They were turned iuto an enclosure of 1000 or more acres and left to roam at their own sweet will. They are the first black.tailed deer brought to New Eng land. The Adams brothers have instructed the gamekeepers to feed them when they come around. It is probable that they will not be seen until they get hungry late in the fall, when the grass is gone. The country where they are placed contains roaring mountain brooks and small ponds which in a measure resemble their na tive country. The thirty-five elks which were brought ou last year all survived the winter and are doing well. They were young animals when they came on, but their horns have grown out so that they would not be recognized. They are very tame, and, although inclosed in over one thousand acres, the same as the inclosures for the others, when the gamekeeper gives a piercing whis tle they all gather around him like so mauy sheep. They are exceeding ly handsome and attractive animals. They often gather in groups in the in closure and lie down quietly in the most docile manner. No one likes to get near the bucks, however, for they have a disagreeable manner of jump ing on visitors with their forefeet. It doesn't take them long to become ac quainted with the people who feed them and they respond readily to the calls for meals. They are fed grain, oats and other cereals, just the same as if they wore domestic animals. It is not an easy matter to take care of this large natural history preserve on October Mountain, aud a half dozen gamekeepers are employed to keep track of the animals. These game keepers live iu one of the farmhouses on the land, and they are out day and night looking after their charges. Mr. Whitney has only given lip about three thousand acres to the game lie has already brought ou, and what he is going to do with the other five thousand acres remains to bo seen. He lias a large number of game birds, lias stocked his brook with trout, and it is evident that in a few years this will be the greatest private game preserve in this country. How to Make u Permanent Paste. Soak an ounce of refined gelatine in cold water for an hour, then drain off" aud squeeze out the water as much as possible. Put the gelatine in a jelly pot, and place the pot in a pun of hot water over the fire. When the gela tine has melted, stir in slowly 12J ounces of pure alcohol. Putin a wide mouthed bottle aud cork tightly. This glue or paste will keep indefinitely, and can be melted for use in a few minutes by setting the bottle in a basin of hot water. As it contains a very small percentage of water, it affects the gloss of the prints but little, and dries almost immediately.—Harper's Hound Table. TOWER FOR CREATER NEW YORK. Triumphal Structure Wlilrli I. t Outstrip That of Unbylon. As a matter of curiosity it may be mentioned that Greater New York is to have—on paper, at least—a tower which is to beat -anything in the world, past or present, even the con fusion-breeding structure of Babylon. William J. Frye is the architect, and E. 0. Townsend is mentioned as pro moter, who is said to he confident that ; the necessary funds will be forthcom- j ing. He has not yet gone into figures, | which is a mere matter of details with him. The tower is to be 2140 feet in height, and is to be twelve-sided, with a diameter of 300 feet for the main base, to be flanked by four pavilions, j which will give the entire base a di- i ameter of 400 feet. The outer walls are to be of cement and wire cloth. Internally the plans represent a laby rinth of steel columns, girders, beams, plates and other forms of steel con | struction, not a particle of wood to be employed in either construction or tinish. Electric cars with reserve j motor power of compressed air are to run spirally around the 100-foot cen tral area, making a trip to the tifth floor from the ground about two and a half miles in length. From the fiftU j floor to the top visitors will be con- ! veyed in an elevator. The proposed tower is to bo built within the next .

Those who wish an original way of getting rid of fleas might try some plan like that adopted by Professor Gage, at one of the buildings of Cor nell University, and described by him in "Insect Life." This plan consisted in lying sheets ol sticky fly paper, with the sticky side out, around the legs of the janitor, who then for several hours walked up and down the floor of the infested room, with the result that all or nearly all of the fleas jumped on his ankles, as they will always do, and were caught by the fly paper.

That which was I erewhile is I no more; The alchemist Love u wondrous change has wrought, And in my soul now lurks no base allov. I have cast off the bonds that thralled be fore; The gold of love hath purified rav thought, Aud Joy my sovereign is. for Love is Joy. —Clinton Scollard. HUMOR OF THE DAY.
