OLD JOHNNY APPLESEED, WHO PLANTED MANY ORCHARDS. H Cooked 111 Meal in III Tin I'ot Hat and Went About liitrefooted, Sowing Appl. Seed and Tracts He Vu Con- IderaU Toward Everything; Alive. Out of the quaintest, queerest and most original characters that ever trod the trackless wastes of the western wilderness , w Jonathan Chapman, known as old jonnny Appleseed. Pioneer, philosopher, pbiianthroplst and nomologist was be, tak ing no thought of himself and living for others only. He would not, could he pre vent It, suffer the slightest harm to be done to the meanest of living creatures. In the (treat western solitudes ho led the life of the primitive Christian, taking a inougnt only of the hour and letting a wise irovUlonco look out for the future. He thought hunting morally wrong, and he would lot & mosquito Bit on him and euoic nu blood until the insect was satiated to bursting. This odd old man was the pioneer or chard planter of the west. For over twen ty years he wandered over the Btates of Indiana, Ohio. Illinois and Missouri, plant ing apple seeds and selling and giving away the seedlings. Many of the great apple orchards of the west owe their origin to Johnny Appleseed. Old Johnny was Dora in Host on in 1 775. In 1801 he ap peared In the territory of Ohio with a load of appls seeds, which ho planted In various places in and about Licking Creek. The first orchard orlgltiated by old Johnny was on the farm of Isaac Btodden, In what is now Licking county, O. "I have often wondered why there was such a widespread ignorance of old Johnny Appleseed In the west," observed a friend of the writer recently. "Even among hor ticulturists his name Is scarcely known. There certainly wus no character any more fully identified with the west than he in his day." Thus it Is with all who have ever heard anything of the oualnt old num. The won der Is that his nanio is not a byword and his history a part of the common school curriculum of the nay. HIS TIN I'OT HAT. The early western pioneers who knew him but slightly considered old Johnny a vagabond From cursory observation it would appear that their views wore pretty well founded, A mnrenncnntb Individual It would have been difficult to And. His garments were n bundle of rags. Hlsshoes, when he wore any, could scarcely be held on his feet by bits of twine, so dilapidated and worn were they. His pinched and grizzled features wore covered by a growth Of very shaggy beard. His bnlr was quite long and very much faded ' by constant ex posure to wind and wouttier. But old Johnny's crowding glory was an old tin mush pot that bad a long handle. This battered old culinary utensil he wore for a hat. When he was tram ping through the western forests the old man always cooked his meals in the old mush pot. The cravings of hunger satisfied, he would give we pot a caronu warning, put. it on nis head and tramp on. This whs ids practice for over two decades. The old pot was bright enough on its inside, hut its exterior was a sight to behold, so blackened and ' battered was It. With all his uncouthness of personality, however, old Johnny Appleseed had an in tellect as kcon ns the most polished schol ars of tho day. His Ideas were far in ad vance of bis time. Those who have re ceived personal Impressions of the old man aay that he was a philosopher whose puri ty of thought was as clear as a peronniul spring and whoso life was as simple as that of a child. WHT HE WAS BO NAMED. The name Johnny Appleseed was given him by the early settlers with whom he cftme In contact because he nearly always carried a bag full of apple seeds with him. These seeds by infinite toil ho gathered from the cider presses among the Dutch farmers in Pennsylvania. When a sufllciont quantity of the seeds had been gathered old Johnny would load the fruit of his labor in a canoe and start on a voyage down the Ohio river into the great wilderness of the west. In Indiana and Illinois, wherever there was the faint est suspicion of a settlement, he went and planted his apple seeds. Sometimes he would seleot an open place in the forest, bis judgment telling him that some day the White man would bo there. The dis covery of fruit bearing apple trees In the woods In these states hiw led many to be lieve that the apples are indigenous to the coil. When Indiana and Illinois became well ettled, old Johnny extended his wander ings west of tlio Mississippi river and rlanted bis apple seeds on Missouri soil. 0 the wigwam of the Indian and tlio cabin of the pioneer he was known and always woleomo. He must have made twenty suoh annual trips as tho one nbovo de scribed. When his seedlings became largo enough he gave them to the settlors or sold them for food and clothes. 80MB OF HIS rKCULIAIUTlKS. One Qf the most peculiar characteristics of old Johnny Appleseed was bis religion. He led a simple, moral and harmless life. He was the follower of the new church, a fiwedonborglan, aud he never lost an op portunity to expound his doctrines. He carried with him always a little bundle of traots. These lie distributed among tho early settlers ou the border of civilization. When he would mako his return trips he woud take those tracts up and leave new ones in their places. His advent in Ohio in the early days created a sensation. Tho atmplo minded people of the towns and vil lages knew nothing but tho old faith, and their belief was strong In superstition. Some thought ho was crazy, and there fore treatod him with compassion; others thought he wus possessed of a devil and roald not allow him to enter their houses. At this time, however, a member of the Daptist church of Richland county, O., a acbool teacher and tho bast read umu in the county, invited tho strango pilgrim to bis homo. Tho Obioan said afterward that he found his guest to bo one of t he lasst posted and most brilliant minded persons that he had ever had the pleasure of meet ing. Those who know tho old man say that he was In oonstant fear of hurting some in sect or animal. Oue night ho built his Camp Are in the woods and prepared to cook his evening inenl. The mosquitoes were very thick about the fire and some of them flew into it nud were scorched. This o worried oh Johnny that he took his old mush pot hat. tilled it with water and Quenched the fire. . It Is "aid that the Bt range old man to whom the west is indebted for most of its craft apple orchards died iu Allen county, Inl. pear Fort Wayne. A person who knew him says that his death was n tri umphant passing into glory. He lay on the Blast with his face toward the settiug an. Hie countenance was wreat hed with smiles of rapture, and as the last beams of She great luminary died out of tho west the vital spark left its abode of llesh and passed Into the great unknown.

Pa., at 8 o clock Friday morning, said that a special train with fire engines had gone to McDonald; that tne Durnmg oil had run into a creek which runs through the town, setting fire to property on both sides of the stream, ana that there was great danger that the whole town would be wiped out. It also stated that the flames had spread over 150 acres and that the fire was beyond control. McDonald is a new oil town where the operations have been very extensive. Almost every foot of availrble ground is taken up by derricks, boiler houses and tanks. There are upward of 800 rigs in close proximity to where the nre origin a tea. Not So Had as First Reported. PiTTsnuna, Aug. 23. The early re ports concerning the oil fire at McDon aid, Pa., were somewhat exaggerated, The true state of affairs, however, is bad enough. The flames so far have been confined within a radius of fifty square yards. I he air is almost motionless ex cept for the huge whirlwinds, created by the intense heat. The fire burned oft the oil savor from the cosing head, giV' ing free vent to the massive volumes of oil, which, as it gushes high in the air, is instantly transformed into a seething gey ser of burning oil. Four 200-pound tanks filled with oil have also ignited and are burning nercely. James Stewart, an employe of the Wheeling Gas company, was badly burnea by venturing too near the burn' inir tanks. The loss to the owners of the Cook well will bo very heavy. Already over 100,000 barrels of oil have been de stroyed. Tho owners are preparing to pour tne contents or a aou-barroi tank ot water over tne burning territory hoping to Bmother tho flame. Should this plan fail a tunnel will be excavated sevoral yards below the surface of the ground, the casing cut and the flowing on snut in. THOSE DETAINED JEWS. Huron lllraeh's Agent Says They Are In Kvery Way Desirable Immigrants. New York, Aug. 22. A. P. Solomons agent of the Baron Hirsch fuud in this country, when shown tho letter of Sena tor Chandler to Secretary Foster, pub lished in roforence to the detained Jews, says that they are in every sense desira ble immigrants. Mr, Solomons thinks Mr. Chandler iutorprots the spirit of not only tho frptner of the law but tho con gress of tho United btates which passed upon it, for American law makers are not so illiterate to ibocome a party to such a law to oppose the entrance of this class of immigrants who are dnvon li om their home oy a cruel government.

Mown and Taylor Faunce, the expert accountants who were up pointed by Governor Pattlson to investi gate tho affairs of tho oflico of the city treasurer of Philadelphia on behalf of the commonwealth, and who accepted the po sition, have notified the governor that they would be unable to serve on the Hate's commission. A Touching Incident. A group of emigrants was gathered in tho long, dreary passage which opens on the bay at the Jersey City station, and as the passengers waiting for the midnight train strayed that way they observed a stolid, pathetic look on each face that told of some greater sorrow than tho loneliness of a strange laud. There were tlio aged grandmother, the father and mother, aud a family of half grown children littlo men and women who moved and talked and looked like their ciders. But they were all silent now and sat motionless on the hard benches ou which their rude luggage was piled. lletween tne intuer ana moiner was a rough bed, extemporized from shawls and comforters aud a coarse cloth coat, and ou bat bed the youngest of the family was sleeping; but there was that iu the aspect of the group that denoted such a deep sor row that one of the passengers approached and asked: "Is tho child sick t" Tho Danish people shook their heads It was an unknown tongue to them. Hut one of the boys, who hod picked up a few of the necessary English words from his fel low travelers ou the steamship voyage to this country, answered, without moving a muscle of his face: "i'esh shleeps." An hour later an official stopped aud leaked at the group. Then he turned down, with no ungentle band, tbe covcrlid from what he believed to be the sleeping child. "Why," he exclaimed, starting back. "this child is dead." "Yesh,"said tho boy who could speak English, shleep dead. And these people had sat by their dead for nearly eight long hours, racked with anxiety as to what they should do, dis tracted with grief, yet unable to speak word-of their trouble to the many sympa thizing hearts that were within reach of them. Thoy left the little yellow haired girl baby, consigned to a foreign grave, and went on their way; but though they shed no tears, there was that In their blue eyes that told of a deep wound, and doubtless In their new home thnv will miss the quaint little figure In Its blue woolen dress snd round white cap and tiny wooden shoes the Danish baby that lies alone un der the shade trees of Jersoy City. Youth Companion. Two True Fish Stories. "Just after the first World's fair ban- 3 net," said Abram Williams, a prominent re insurance manager, "a party of gentle men were talking tn one of the parlors of the Palmer House, where the feast was spread, and, as will happen sometimes, you know, the conversation drifted to fish sto ries. And fish stories reminded Delegate White, of the south, of an experience he hod in New Mexico. " 'The fish were so plentiful,' said Mr. White, 'that all our party needed to do when we wanted a dinner of fish was to take two boards or shingles, and forming them in the shape of a scoop just dish out as many as we needed for a meal. "When Mr. White had finished there was a moment's silence, then Edwin Walker, attorney for the St. Paul road. quietly said: " 'That's not much of a fish story. Mr. White. Why, when I was traveling up one of the small rivers iu southern Alaska I saw fish in such great numbers that the water could not be seen. It was a most remarkable thing, and I have nover heard of the like before or since. They were act ually so thick that they were wedged in the water, heads down, and all that could be seen was thousands of their wriggling tails sticking up out of. the water, each one, of course, having an individual mo tion of its own.' A shout of laughter greeted Mr. Walker from every one except Mr. White, whoso face flushed up hotly, then paled until it was whiter than a sheet, as he said: 11 'Rut. Mr. Walker, mv fitorv was t.rne ' 'And so was my story true,' responded Mr. Walker. "And the best of It was that Mr. Walk er's story was literally true, as Mrs. Walker later in the evening testified. It was in the spawning season, aud just above the spot whors the remarkable sight was wit nessed was a narrow rapids. The salmon went up the stream in such quantities that many were crowded out of the water, and gave to the scene literally the., aspect told i r tir..n Au. i '-I: , i. uy lur. v umer, iuicugo viiouc. Aflixlng the Great Seal. The secretary of state lies no right to affix tho great seal of the United States to any paper without a "warrant" from the president authorizing him to do so. This warrant is always filed vlth the document so sealed, and reads as follows: I authorise aud direct the soorotai y of state to causo tho great seal of the United Status to bo affixed toTwhatovor the document may bol dated this day, and signed by me, and for so doing this shall Be ills warrant. President of the United States. The great seal is affixed to nothing but treaties, proclamations, commissions, par dons and passports. The old seal, which had been In use since tho foundation of the government, was worn out and replaced by a new one in the early part of 1880. It Is a curious fact that the old one which was used so long was Imperfect and nevor did answer to the description sot down In the statutes. Although using the soul Is supposed to be a solemn affair, and the penalty for its im proper use Is so tremendous, it Is left in charge of a clerk, just like any other piece of furniture, aud it is doubtful if tho secre tary sees it twice a year. During the early days of the government It was guarded with much vigilanco, as its appearance upon any documont was known to give that document the forco of law, but now the pooplo look to tho newspapers and not to a piece of parchment for their Informa tion. St. Louis Republic. Spoiled Ills rtuslness. A boy with ragged clothes and with face and hands that had not been troubled with water for many days, perhaps months, en tered tho office of Tax Collector Stewart Saturday morning and begged the loan of a dime. "I will give you one," said the tax collector, "if you will take that piece of soap there and get under that hydrant and wash yourself." The boy took the soap and puttiug his head under the hy drant undid the work of many weeks in a few minutes, Ho was completely transformed when he arose from his ablutions. The tax collec tor gave him tho dime and remarked, That is the best money you havo ever eurned." "IJest nothing," replied the boy scornfully, "you have played hob with my business."

As a cure for every class of Nervous Diseases, no remedy has been ablo to compare with the Nervino Tonic, which is very pleasant and harmless in 11 its effects upon tho youngest child or tho oldest and most delicate individ ual. Nine-tenths of all the ailments to which tho human family is heir, aro dependent on nervous exhaustion and impaired digestion. When there is an sufficient supply of nervo food in the blood, a general fstato of debility of ,he brain, sninal marrow and nerves is the result. Starved nerves, liko starved muscles, become strong when n thousand weaknesses and aumenls disappear as tho nerves recover. As tho nervous system must supply all tho power by which tho vital forces of tho body are carried on, it is the fir& to suffer for want of perfect nutrition. Ordinary food does not contain a sufficient quantity of tho kind of nutriment necessary to repair tho wear our present mode ot living and labor imposes upon the nerves. For thi3 reason it becomes necessary that a nervo food ho supplied. This recent production of tho tound, by analysis, to contain tne essential elements out oi wmcn nervo ussua is formed.
