A party of campers from Seattle
were hauling a gigantic cedar Ing up
on the beach of Lake Washington to
be converted into firewood when what
appeared to be a huge plug attracted
(heir attention. One ran for the axe
and the log was split Into two pieces.
The plug acted as a door of a safety
vault where some logger twenty years
ago had hidden his savings. There
were $C00 In gold, $C8 in silver and
$500 In currency. The name, though,
dim, on the post office money orders
appears to be Claude Parsons or Par
ker, and they are payable In the post
office at Eau Claire. Wis. The money
orders are dated April, 1891.
Efforts will be made to find the
rightful owner of the hoard. Many sto
ries are told of the prodigality with
which loggers handled their money
in the halcyoa days of logging. A
favorite bank was to put a boom

LIGHTNING CAME BY PHONE
While the sun was shining the other
day at Clinton, N. J., and there was no
indication of an electrical storm, a
bolt of lightning struck a liberty pole
In front of a hotel shattering the shaft
and scaring a team of mules so badly
that they ran two miles. The team
was tied to a ring attached to the pole,
which was thirty feet high. After the
animals had been stopped It was found
that the bolt of lightning which had
shattered the pole had also melted the
Iron shoes from each of the mules.
Otherwise they were uninjured. The
source of the lightning bolt puzzled all
the local electrical experts and me
teorologists, but after investigation it
virb found that a telephone wire run
ning from Slngac passed so close to
the flag pole as to touch it. At the
time the pole was struck a fierce thun
der atorm was raging in the vicinity
of Slngac, and the theory is that
iiginning siriKing ine telephone wire I
in the' storm zone, traveled over the
cable until it encountered the unin
sulated liberty pole, where the full
force of the bolt was spent.
RODENT HAS MONEY TO BURN
A pet red squirrel belonging to Otto
Speltz, farmer, of Bclllngham, Wash
has been under surveillance ever since
he was discovered tearing a $5 Canad
ian bill to pieces. Speltz rescued the
money and sent It to Ottawa for re
demption. He had no more than despatched
the letter containing the shreds of the
Ave than the squirrel was found play
ing with a piece of a United States
$10 bill.
Speltz garnered this money in be
fore it was too damaged for barter,
and Is now watching the movements of
his pet. It is believed the rodent has
discovered a hidden hoard laid away
in past years by a miser or cached by
a robber in a hollow tree and found
by the squirrel.

CHILD WITH TWO HEADS
A most, wonderful child is the six-year-old
daughter of John O. Nelson
of Brooklyn Hills, N. Y. She has two
well developed heads; and though un
able cither to sit up or walk, her gen
eral health is good, and she possesses
normal intelligence.
When the child was born the doc
tors said she could not live, but Mr.
Nelson, possessed of considerable
means, engaged the host physicians
and gave the little one the most care
ful attention, sparing no expense In
trying to make the delicate infant a
healthy child. According to her fa

SNAKE BINDS OWL TO TREE
Charles Allison of Nashville, Ind..
relates a peculiar experience with a
snake and an owl. He was walking
along the creek carrying his gun.
when he noticed a large owl sitting in
an old dead tree. Ho shot three times,
and says he knew he hit the bird each
time, as it would drop its wings when
he discharged tho gun. On going
closer to the tree he found why the
owl did not fall. A large blacksnake
had wound around the bird, and had
its head hanging down the tree. He
shot the snake, then the owl and rep
tile both fell Into the water.

Thinking to quiet her, her mother
said: "Never mind, Dorothy, It's my

"Well, I don't care," replied Dorothy
with feeling; "It's me that's using It."
