Richest Gold Mine In the World.
The Band Barton and Albion gold
mine, under the town of Ballarat, in
Australia, has yielded more than fifty
millions as the value of its output of
gold since It was discovered about thir
ty years ago. It Is the most productive
gold mine yet known. Its supply o!
paying quartz seems practically Inex
haustible, and as the vein Is extensive,
being spread over much territory, the
mine bids fair to last for centuries. The
work in the Ballarat gold mine 1b said
to be much safer as well as more com
fortable than that of the workers In
A coal mine. At Ballarat there are no
noxious gases and no danger from ex
plosions. Air Is forced Into the work
ings through various shafts. In the
Transvaal rich and regular deposits
were discovered in 1886 in the Witwa
terarand. The reefs are estimated to
contain nearly 100,000,000 tons of ore,
the gold of which Is said to be worth
£45,000,000. From eighty to a hun
dred years must elapse before the field

Home for Families of Bandits.
Not actuated by remorse, but by pure
philanthropy, Jim Jenkins, hunter oi
outlaws, has concluded to devote all
his money to the maintenance of a
home for the orphans and widows of
men he haß run to earth, in particular,
and of criminals of the great South
west In general. Jim Jenkins, now ol
Kansas, is now 65 years old and has
spent forty years as a scout and hunt
er of bandits and train robbers. Ir. this
way he has made about $50,000. Among
the distinguished outlaws he has
chased were Jesse James and his broth
er, Bob Ford, Bill Dalton and Bill
Cook, while he was the leader of the
band that caught Cherokee Bill in 1895.
In the Dalton raid in CofTeyvilie, Kas.,
Jenkins was shot eight times. He esti
mates his bag of bad men at about 150.
The home, which is being built on a
5,000-acre farm owned by Jenkins,
near Pryor Creek, I. T., is to cost $20,-

Ernest Whitehead captured a young
seal near Anacapa island, California,
recently, and took him on board his
ship, says Our Dumb Animals. As the
vessel started the mother seal was no
ticed swimming about, howling pite
ously. The little captive barked re
j sponsively. After reaching the wharf
at Santa Barbara the captive was tied
j up in a Jute sack and left loose on the
j deck. Soon after coming to anchor
the seal responded to Its mother's call
by casting Itself overboard, all tied up
as It was in the sack. The mother
seized the sack, and with her sharp
teeth tore it open. She had followed
the sloop eighty miles.
RECOGNIZING THE DRUM MAJOR
He Will Have a New Uniform, But Leu
The drum major, the highly deco
rated show piece of the military band
and the delight of the email boy, hat
received official recognition. For sev
eral years the drum major has been
slighted, and it a*as considered good
form to speak of him as unnecessary.
The National Guard hands took their
cue from the army, and the drum ma
jors of the regimental bauds became
less conspicuous, their uniforms less
elaborate, and in some instauces the
bands dispensed with the services of
the man with the gold lace embroidered
red coat. But it seems that the army
has recognized the fact that the drum
major is necessary, and a new style of
dress has been prescribed for him in

orders issued from the War Depart
ment. He will carry a baton wound
with silken cords and tassels, and the
color will designate the arm of service:
Cavalry, yellow; artillery, scarlet; in
fantry, blue and white intermixed.
The mounted drum majors will carry
swords instead of batons.
The shako, which has always been
the headdress of the drum major, has
been prescribed by the new regula
tion, which describes this important
article of dress in these words:
"Black lynx skin shako, with plume
and tassels of the color of the arm of
service, and leather chin straps with
brass scales aud side buttons."

The tailors of the country report an

The average American of the middle

will probobly be nearly six feet high,
fifty inches around the chest, fifty-four

Meantime the average Englishman
has been growing thinner, probably
because he is not so well fed as his an

structure, removes a landmark vaguely
associated in the annals of the neigh
brohood with the days of the American
revolution. When Washington made
his headquarters at Roosevelt and
Cherry streets, the local historians
declare, he stored In these old build
ings munitions of war supplies for his
army. The historians of Cherry Hill
then skip the intervening years until a
period beginning fifteen or twenty
years ago Is reached. The buildings
were then occupied as resorts for sail
ors. The Loopey gang, which once
threw a man Into the river for 6 cents,
made its headquarters in the neignoor
hood. Near by was Sneepy's alley,
leading from Roosevelt to Cherry
street, in which a Roosevelt street resi
dent declares there were three mur
