Bdward Gunnison, a prospector,
while teat-pitting for Iron nenr licre to
Uy. bad an adventure tbat lias turned
bla hair gray, but at the same time he
has discovered a subterranean lake
-Mil of apparently blind fisli, and he
figures that he Is ahead. For several
weeks past Gunnison has been pros
pecting between this place and Duluth,
and has sunk a pit on the lake shore,
4 few miles north of here. This morn
ing, while pursuing his investigations,
at a depth of twelve feet, the earth at
the bottom of the pit suddenly gave
way, dropping Gnnnison and liis pick
and shovel into the subterranean lake,
twenty feet below the bottom of tlie
pit. The water was shallow, and as
soon as Gunnison recovered from his
fright, he made an examination of the
cavern Inclosing the lake.
This cavern, Gunnison says, covers
two acres of water the shores of the
little lake are of rock which also
forms the walls. The water is clear
and cold, being fed, apparently by un
derground streams. Alter a long hunt
In the darkness Gunnison found that
the lake had an underground outlet
into Lake Superior. The outlet was
large enough for Gunnison to creep
through to the open air. As a memen
to of the involuntary trip Into the bow
els of the earth Gunnison brought with
bltn one of the fish, of which he says
the lake is full. The fish resembles a
black bass in some respects, only it is
whiter and apparently blind. It is
now on exhibition here.
Two skeletons, probably of Indians,
were found in the cavern in which the
lake 1b located. They were lying side
by side at the mouth of the passage
through which Gunnison crept. They
crumbled to pieces at the touch.—Two

OUHMBRTON'S BESETMENT9.
Troubled Moat Just Now Over a
What-Not In the Parlor.
"In her latest rearrangement of the
parlor," said Mp. Glimmerton, "my
oldest daughter has placed in front of
the what-not a comtortable rocking
chair in which I have always liked to
sit. The what-not is a flimsy structure
on legs so slender that tney wabble
when you look at them. Upon its
shelves there are maay delicate bottles
and jars ami vases and things that
are always ready to fall off.
"If I were not so eternally kept
down I should be a man of cheerful
spirits even as it is I manage to keep
my head above the slough of despond,
but I have a pretty hard time of it,
what with one tliin and another, and
just now the what-not in tlie parlor
is one of my most trying besetments.
t)ne cannot sit in the big chair now
without danger of knocking the what
not over. The first time I tried it the
chair rocked back and brought up
against it All the bottles and jars and
vases on the shelves nodded violently,
many of them beyond recovery, and
these went down with that slight but
compact crash that thin china makes
when it falls.
"Then I had to keep the what-not
always in mind if I sat in the rock
ing chair at all I had to sit in it care
fully. Once when I had forgotten
about the great calamity and had
jumped up rather suddenly the chair
rocked back and touched the what-not
again this time, however, not so hard
only a few things fell. But now I have
given up that chair altogether for
with the what-not at Its back it Is no
longer a comfort to me.
"I look at the big arm chair longingly
and I fancy it looks with sympathy at
me and I wait with patient cheerful

Electric Light
The two species of large water bugs
that have come to be called electric
light bugs have put in an appearance
around the electric arc lights. The
most curious thing about these bugs is
tlint before the introduction of electric
lights they wero considered to be com
paratively rare. They were seldom
seen, at they wore not attracted by or
dinary light. When the arc light ap
peared, however, the bugs became
enormously noticeable. Upon their ap
pearance in such prodigious numbers
entomologists were of the opinion that
after two or three years both species
would grow scarcer but the numbers
do not seem to be decreasing ,in the
slightest. While neither the bclostoma
or the benacus is distinctly poisonous,
both have strong beaks capable of in
flicting severe wounds, and it will be
wise to handle them with great care,
if at nil. The very large black water
beetle will also be seen among the
water bugs around electric lights in
the proportion of about 1 to 100.—

The United States capitol is full of

used to clean regularly for years while
living. His name was Osborne, and
he died rather more than a twelve
month ago. The phantom which has
been longest known at the capital,
however, haunts the basement ot the
house of representatives. It has been
seen by many of the watchmen, who
all describe the apparition as that of
a tall, military-looking gentleman of
foreign aspect, with long mustache
and goatee. He walks about the
corridors in a melancholy way, with
his hands clasped behind him, an)
promptly vanishes when approached.
A BULLET FOR HIS JOKE.
The watchmen at the capitol, who
are all men selected for intelligence
and experience, say that the building
is a crewsonie place to walk about in
at night. The huge structure is filled
with mysterious sounds, the
smallest noise being magnified
by reverberation. Strange voices
seem to whisper everywhere, from the
corridors that ruu around the dome
to the place ol echoes called the
crvpt," beneath. Walking across
Statuary hall in the silent darkness,
where the marble figures ranged
around the great apartment seem
themselves like so many specterB on
the watch, a person experiences a
strange illusion, doubtless arising
from the acoustic peculiarities of the
spot. He hears footsteps stealthily
following his own, asjif of some one who
was pursuing him with an intention
to leap upon him. The footsteps
seem to be going a little faster than
his own as if to overtake him.

saw a spectral figure all in white glide

He promptly drew his pistol and fired
two shots at it. His aim was dis
turbed by fright, which was fortu
nate for his fellow.offlcer of the guard,
who had thought to play a good joke
by dressing himself up in a sheet and
hiding. On account of this occurrence
the watchmen have not since then
been permitted to carry their revol
vers at night. Time and time again
one watchman or another ha9 been
so convicted of the reality of these
sounds as to pursue them in rubber
shoes, without a light. The cats
which race in troops about the capi

for many of the ghost storieB connect

HAUNTED HOUSES GALORE.
Washington is the worst haunted
town in the union. The city is dotted
all over with haunted houses, which
remain uurented year after year on
account of the hobgoblins supposed
to inhabit them. The most original
of these local phantoms occupies a
house on Nineteenth street, between
and R, which has been for rent and
unoccupied nearly all of the time dur
ing several years past, although its
situation Sis in the most desirable
quarter ot the town and the price
asked for a lease of it is absurdly low.

ear. Then, as appeared from
the condition in which things

were subsequently found, he
clung with one hand to the mantel
piece while his blood poured out upon
the hearth until he iell and died.
Every night the sounds of blood drip
ping fromthe mantelpiece are distinct
ly heard in the room, although noth
ing can be seen. The noises are of
such a distressingly suggestive char
acter that nobody can be found to oc
cupy the building for more than a
short period. The last tenant threw
up his year's lease after five weeks. A
number of dwelling houses in Wash
ington have been torn down on ac
count of apparently supernatural
manifestations in them, while the
foundation of one was actually torn
up awhile ago to get rid of a ghost
that was alleged to occupy the cellar.
The most famous of all the haunted
establishments in this vicinity is
the old Taylor mansion on the
northeast corner of Seventeenth
street and New York avenue. For
many years it has been emnty, no
tenants being obtainable at any price.
Parties of gentlemen have on several
occasions spent nights in the house,
and have subsequently related most
terrifying experiences, such as the
death of a dog by fright in one in
stance. Special feasts are said to be
held in the dining-room, the rattling
of dishes and clinking of glasses being
heard, though neither table furniture
nor guests can be seen. The stories
told respecting the origin of the ghosts
that haunt the mansion vary 'some
what, one of them being to
the effect that the former owner, a
cruel slaveholder before the war, whio

related that he killed his daughter by

would not marry as he wished.

which Mr. Blaine occupies, but it is
said that death haunts it. Something
tragic seems to happen to every oue
who ventures to occupy it. In 1856,
when the mansion was occupied by
the Washington club, Barton Key was
shot by General Sickles on the pave
ment in front and was carried into
the house to die. On the evening of
April 14,1865, almost atthem-m»nt
when President Lincoln was assasi
nated, Louis Powell, alias
Payne, entered the residence
for the purpose of killing Secretary
Seward, who was confined to
his bed at the time. With a knife
and pistol he horribly wounded Mr.
Seward and four other persons. Since
Mr. Blaine took the house he has lost
two of his pnna and a daughter, but
he li.ts returned to it nevertheless,
disdaining superstition.
One of the lieutenants of the watch
at the capitol tells a story of a re
markable apparition which he inves
tigated about six years ago near
Washington. A house in the
Buburbs,
somewhat isolated, was reported to
be haunted by two specters, which
had most extraordinary method of
showing themselves. The dwelling in
question was entirely surrounded by
a picket fence and many persons aver
red that on various nights they had
seen a pair of sheeted spookes walking
around on top of the pickets. So
seriously alarmed did the inmates be
come that they advertised their prop
erty for sale, but nobody would buy
it on account of its spectral reputa
tion. The narrator determined to
investigate the matter, and lay in
wait alter dark near by. About an
hour after midnight he saw a single
)hantom appear at the top ot the
ence and walk slowly around it. It
was all in white, and apparently van
ished through a side door of the
dwelling.
On the next day he quietly sprinkl
ed a quantity of white flour along
the top rail of the fence, which result
ed in the discovery that two young
daughters of the farmer were somnam
bulists.

Monkey* Worklusr aa Laborera
the Gold Mlnen.
Competition is very keen in the gold
mines of the Transvaal. Some twenty
four monkeys were recently put to
work as day laborers in the mine op
erated by Capt E. Moss of Boston.
Their work Is so satisfactory that their
services are accepted in place of or
dinary vftirkmen. Capt Moss recently
published an account of bis remarka
ble monkey miners in the Boston Even
ing Transcript
He says the twenty-four monkeys do
the work of seven able-bodied men
and they do some of the work more
.tisfactoilly. There are, besides, no
strikes or other labor troubles among
these new workmen. The monkeys'
work is the gathering of small pieces
of quartz, which they carefully pile
into little heaps. Their sharp eyes de
tect the small gold-bearing pieces of
qunrtz, which an ordinary workman
would pass over, and they are exceed
ingly skilful and quick in picking them
up.
Capt. Moss says that when he com
menced digging gold he had two pet
monkeys which constantly followed
him about the mine. One day he no
ticed that they were busily engaged in
gathering up little bits of quartz and
carefully placing them in piles. They
seemed to enjoy this work very much.
It did not take the captain long to
learn their value as laborers, and so
the monkey gang was at once in
creased.
The monkeys that have had experi
ence in the mines teach the new mon
keys how to do the work.

TALKHD WITH TUB DOCTOR.
••Ur. the Wyomlac Hnrderer,
Shows Sicaa of Weakening
Stillwater, June 25. Dr. Burnslde
Foster of St. Paul came over to Still
water to see and identify the two
murderers of Hayes and Paul at Wy
oming. The doctor, his head still
showing the bruises from his sanguin
ary encounter, seated himself in the
sheriff's office at the county jail, and
George Kelly, the elder and more
hardened outlaw, was first called in.
He was subjected to a most rigid ex
amination, and the doctor was con
vinced that he was one of the despe
radoes. At the time of the murder
Kelly's face was disguised by a ban
danna handkerchief of peculiar pat
tern. One was found In his pocket
when captured and was fully identi
fied .by Dr. Foster. During the in
terview Kelly maintained a stubborn
silence wh'en questioned concerning
the crime or else would answer:
"it would uot do me any good to say
anything about it you would not if
you wore in m.v place, would you?"
Dr. Foster then said: "Kelly, if you
want to say anything to me in private
I assure you it will remain secret with
me."
After thinking this over for a few
minutes the prisoner answered: "Just
step this way for a minute."
A private conversation ensued for
Ave minutes or more, Kelly calling the
doctor back to a parting word. Just
what this conversation was no one
but the doctor and Kelly knows, but
Dr. Foster remarked afterward that
Kelly was breaking down under the
shadow of his terrible crime.
James Cunningham, alias Arthur
Johnson, the younger outlaw, who
seemed to have played a minor part
In the tragedy, talked freely and In
effect the same ns yesterday. Dr.
Foster confirmed his statement that
lit? was outside the building at the
time and took no part in the shooting.
Kelly Is evidently the man who shot
Hayes and Paul.
A FAIR WIDOW.
Mra. Craven Keeps the Millionaire's
Helra Gneaalns
San Francisco, June 25.—Mrs. Nellie
Craven lias made two sensational
moves in the Fair will contest. She
lias filed ejectment proceedings against
the heirs of James Fair to oust them
from possession of the property at
Pine aud Sansome streets and the
block on Mission and Eleventh streets,
and at the same time to recover in all
$220,000 for back rents and damages.
Mrs. Craven refused to take the stand
nnd be sworn In response to the sum
mons of Judge Stack ordering her and
her attorney nnd advisers to produce
any pnpers or written documents of
the late millionaire in their possession.
For this defiance of the court Mrs.
Craven was sentenced to twenty-four
hours in the Branch county jail, but
jt the solicitation of her attorneys, ex
ecution of the order was stayed for
twenty-four hours In the hope that
she may change her mind. The two
deeds that were recorded are still miss
ing. Attorney Hegegrty believes now
that he will never secure them.

Washington, June 25—No official ad
vices have been received In diplomatic
circles of the arrest of Mr. Harrison.
Surprise is not expressed at the con

such difficulties ...may be expected so
long as the boundary question remains
unsettled. The affair is similar in
many respects to the ITruan incident
of a-year ago.

DAMAGES FROM THE EARL.
An EJnarltalt Serviwr Maid WTio Re
fused to Carry Coal (or Clnnearty
Yesterday at the Brampton comity
court Capt. Head claimed-£15 from the
earl of Clancarty for breach of agree
ment in the hiring of a furnished house,
40 Lowndes Squnre, says the West
minster Gazette. The defendant, signed
an agreement to take the house in ques
tion from Sept. 23 last to November
18 at the rent of £100 l(5s. This docu
ment contained a clause to the effect
that his lordship should retain on the
premises the landlord's housemaid,
named White, the former paying her
3 shillings per week for washing nnd
beer and lialf her wages (£22 per an
num), besides providing her with board.
Shortly after his lordship and his serv
ants took up tlicir abode at 40 Lown
des Square, the earl of Clancarty sent
the butler to the housemaid with an
order to make a fire iu Lady Clan
carty's room. White replied that, it
was not her place to curry coal while
an able-bodied footman was In tlie
house. Eventually, however, she did
light the fire, but expressed her opin
ion that it was not her duty to carry
coal. His lordship, on being informed
of this, wrote her a note reproving her
for what he termed "impertinence"
and telling her to pack up aud leave the
house. Later on Lord Clancarty offer
ed her a month's wages in lieu of no
tice, but the plaintiff declined to ac
cept it or leave the house. She stated
that she was turned out at !»:30 p. in.
by the aid of a policeman. One of the
neighbors sheltered her until the morn
ing, when she took a train to her
parents' home in Taunton. Defendant,
who was stated to be unable at present
to leave his reside-ice at Ballinsloc,
Ireland was represented by counsel,
who stated the defense to be that the
girl ou refusing to carry coal behaved
impertinently, and defendant was legal
ly witiiiu his right in discharging her.
His honor said that clearly Lord Clan
carty had no authority to dismiss this
sen ant. He (the learned judge) did
not think in a nobleman's family a
housemaid should be asked to carry
coal, and ho was of opinion that the
girl hud treated his lordship with tlie
greatest respect possible. He found for
the plaintiff for £13, but disallowed £2
railway fare and express to Taunton.
Judgment was entered accordingly,
with costs.
Value ot Twin Screws.
The great value of twin screws, apart
from Wie increased speed which they
give, was shown in the case of the
steamship Paris, belonging to the
American Navigation Company. Al
though the rudder of the Paris was
broken she remained under control and
by the use of her twin screws was turn
ed about and returned to port Such ac
cidents are relatively rare, but when
they occur it is usually In rough weath
er, when steering gear is most needed.
The ship3 with' twin screws have in
effect a duplicate rudder, and are there
by rendered that much safer.—Jhiladcl
phia Ledger.
Slakinu Had Warw.
A man, reduced to desperation
through his debts, fluug himself into
a fiver. A kind-hearted individual res
cued him, and said: 'You owe me your
life."

"Here's a nice how-d'ye-do—another
debt!"—La Trlbuna.
