MtL THE DEVIL’S GOLD. The Lugtst Hogget Enr Foul on this Continent. DUceT«n4 la N*rtfe Car* 11aa >■« Verth a*ft,OOU~-rate •« line Three Peewcwon. It is fit that men should mine the Jsw bones of the earth to get metal (or the teeth of man, says the Washinston Pott, and this be does, and thus does the gold he gets find its way back to mother earth. More gold is buried with the dead than was lost in the sea and earth since the argosies of Castile were sunk in Biscay and the caravels of Solomon the Jew were lost among the Moluccas reefs and shoals off the Malay peninsula which was called Ophir. A strange thing is gold. Gold in the hands of man is most unjustly and un equally distributed. In the earth its dis tribution is even more lacking in law and balance. The geologist is yet to come who will trace, like a placer miner, its outcroppings and signs, through allu vial deposits, stream washings, ledge and vein, to the grandest pocket en earth. What a find it will be. The philosopher’s stone alone could rival it. But some where there must be gold in plenty. Did it in the earth’s first whirl from chaos sink like a plummet to the center? Are the outcroppings of the hills and moun tains but flakes and wires whirled and spun upward from the golden ball thou sands of miles below the surface? Pos sibly. How many know where the largest sin gle lump of native gold ever eeen in America was found? In California? No. In Colorado? No. In the Black Hills? No. In Coear d'Alene, Nevada, New Mexico? No. In old Mexico, Peru, Bo livia, in Potosi, in the Caliao of Venezu ela? No. Where then? In North Car olina. And its story is as weird and fateful as the Rhinegold’s. A poor and ignorant Irishman, living in the mountains, solitary and lonely, propped open the door of hla cabin with a lamp of metal. He had found It stick ing oat from a water-washed gully and carried it home as a curiosity. Though no larger than a small cymling it was a weighty lug for a mile. It was a dull yel low, irregular in shape, and pieces of stone were imbedded in it. For over two years a fortune lay upon the floor of his hovel, while he toiled early and late, making a little whiaky and digging gin seng root to earn a scanty living. A com panion mountaineer, who had known more of the outside world, thought this strange stone might be sold at Asheville as a cariosity for a lot of money—slo per haps. This was In the flush days before the war. Hp had seen quartz crystal from Roan mountain bring that ranch. A third mountaineer was called in con sultation. Ten dollars was a lot of money. The third man had been a traveler, a regular globe trotter. He went to Ashe ville four times a year, and he had been clear to Washington. Walking around the lump he gased at it from every side, touched it with his toe, spat on it, and breathed heavily. "Hit air wurth nothin’, sr hit air wuth a pile," he said. "Hit air nuthin’ but brass, er hit air—" He looked around on the other two with a queer expression— “goold.” "Ef hit air brass"—he drew a claap knife and scraped the dull metal till a new surface glittered—"vinegar’ll mat hit. E( hit air goold. hit won’t." He poured some vinegar from a Jug upon the fresh facing of the lamp. The three men hung over it intently. Five, ten, fifteen minutes passed, and still the metal shone clear and untarnished. "Hit’s goold I” "And I’ve been! goold was wurth more than S2OO a pound," said the second. "Whata d d fool I’ve been," groan ed the owner of the cabin. "For two years I’ve worked, and wealth I never dreamed of kickin’ under my feet." "I claims a third," broke in the assay er. "Ye’d never a knowed what it was but fer me." "An’ a third for me," eaid the other. The owner of the gold gave a sullen as sent. They obtained a pair of steelyards and weighed the gold. It turned the scales at over 100 pounds avoirdupois, and they roughly estimated It to be worth $26,000 —over SBOOO apiece. That night all three sat up and watched the treasure, unable to sleep from excitement and thoroughly sncpicious of each other. The next day they rolled it securely in a cloth and started lor Aslieville afoot with the gold slung to a pole and carried be tween two. It VII th« devil’s ydd. At the flnt belting piece the Irishmen end the second mountaineer conspired to kill the third, end he wes shot deed from behind. Hes tily throwing his body into e clump of brash the murderers (seed eech other in the rood. Suspicion roused in eech guilty breest sew treachery in the other’s glance. “Here.” said one forcing an uneasy laugh, “there’s only one way to settle this. Let’s divide the gold and eech go his wey.” “Agreed,” seid the other. The lump was laid in the roadway and chopped in two with a hatchet. “Take your choice.” said one. As the other bent to lift his half his companion split the head of the stooping man with his hatchet. The gold was his. With blind fatuity he dragged the second vic tim to the side of the road, lifted the blood stained treasure, nod went on. At Asheville he took it to the bank and had it shipped to the United States mint. In lees than a week, and before any return could be made from the mint, the bodies of tics murdered men bad been discover ed and the crime traced directly home. The miserable wretch was placed in Jail and there he died within a year. The witch gold fortune never crossed his hands, remaining, 1 believe, in the fed eral treasury for lack of ownership. The region where the lump waa found has been scoured foot by foot, but not another lump like that has ever been dis covered in that or any other section of America. It is said that an English company, which is working the Nacoo chee mine, in Georgia, took out a nugget weighing 1300 pennyweights, yet the North Carolina lump weighed over 1500 ounces. • 100,000 i* Laaa.

"I had a good Job,” he said, ”ln a Monroe street fiction foundry—one of those shops where they publish stories of the ‘Skeleton Hunter’s last Gurgling Gasp’ order by the cord. It is the rank est kind of rot, and is liable to give a printer blood-poisoning if he handles much of It. It is the sort of literature that induces little boys to get up in the night, steal the old man’s pocketbook, buy guns, and start out west to rescue the imperilled maiden from the lair of the robber chieftain and restore her to her agonized parents. ‘‘There were twenty printers and six liars, each a full-fledged Ananias, work ing in the place. The liars sat at a table in one end of the room grinding out those unwholsome stories as fast as we could put them in type. One day I got a wad of copy that was positively sickening. It was about a lovely girl that had been cap tured and torn from her home by a heart less white desperado and his band of bloodthirsty Apaches. The girl was in a desperate fix. She either had to marry the villain or become his wife, he didn’t care which, and he was then on his way to a cave in the mountains, where he was going to have the ceremony per formed. “That night they camped in a rocky gorge 200 miles from nowhere, and bound the unfortunate maiden to a tree with the usual buckskin thongs, which cut deep into her tender wrists. Then they laid down and went to sleep. In the mean time Old Zeke, the Hairy Scout, who was the first on the trail, sneaked up Just at daylight, when people sleep the soundest. Zeke sailed in and killed twenty-five or thirty Indians with the butt end of his trusty rifle. He didn’t want to shoot for fear he would waken the others. Then, after be had cut a notch for each corpse on bis gnnstock and bung the coarse, black scalp-locks to his belt, he released the girl, hoisted her under his arm, jumped into the saddle, and rode away. “He rode at full speed for forty-eight miles without stopping. When night closed, in the bold scoot pulled rein and went into camp. First he picketed his horse, then bultt a fire, fixed a cot of leaves for the girl and got her something to eat out of his saddle-bags. This was where I got in my work. “The first thing Zeke took out of the bags was several thick slices of fresh Vi enna bread with honey on them. Next came cold boiled ham, cut thin, an apple pie with a short crispy upper crust, and lost a tender spring chicken roasted a del icate brown. Mind you, he had all this stuff in a pair of saddle-bags in the wilds of the Rocky mountains, 800 miles from civilization, in the year 1896. It made me sick, but I resolved that the poor girl should have one good feed if I died for it Sol shoved in another, paragraph like this, completing the Mil of fare: “After getting the girl started, Zeke reached into the saddle-bags and pulled out a bowl of steaming hot consommie and a broiled fresh mackerel, some devil ed crabs, cold slaw, potato salad, a half fry, veal cutlets breaded, with tomato sauce, green corn on the cob, some clam chowder, stewed turkey, a portion of rice podding, two cups of chocolate, pork ten derloin, Rochefort cheese and a bottle of Bass’ ale, Saratoga chips, a plate of va nilla ice cream, a Chinese paper napkin, sliced cucumbers, some California grapes and a nickel-plated nut-cracker.” “DM It goT” asked an interested lis tener. “No, it didn’t.” said the printer sadly, “bat I did. The boss came to me next morning with a proof slip and wanted to know who was writing that story. I said the author was making a stagger in that direction, bat wasn’t giving the girl a fair show.” —Chicago Tima. INDIAN ARROWHEADS. The Little Polite Tells the History«( the Hue. The Aatlgaary’a latercsllag Re ar arch at the Campfires *f the Ahwrlfflaeee. Walla Walla Union: There is a certain charm found in the study of aboriginal antiquities which makes the enthusiast in such things the laughing-stock of the utilitarian. One can trace up the history of a tribe from the rudest and most prim itive type to the highest form of aborigi nal endeavor by the study of the works left behind them. The arrow points of the Colombia are in all stages of development, from the crudest idea to the most highly finished work of art. This might have happened by different members of the same tribe, of varying skill, doing the work at the same period, hut while in some cases this may be true, there still remains witness of the growth of the arrow point idea from the rude to the roost complete; from the rough art of war to the arrow of Cupid set in fancy forms and colors, and still dangerous to the hearts of women who fall in love with them on sight, and shameless of their history, bear them re joicing on their bosoms. The oldest forme of arrow heads were evidently fashioned of some soft material and left to harden in the fire. These show no traces of tools upon their sur face and by exposure to the elements are many shades lighter upon their surface than upon their interior. They were made in the form of a harrow with moon like horns at the base. Then followed flint, or rather soft petrified roots of trees, fashioned in the same form. These ar row heads must have set clumsily upon the end of the arrow and been left in the flesh of the victim. Later came imitations of various leaves of plants and trees, but still of rough and rude formation, of large site, course ma terial and without barbs. These kinds are far the most numerous, and show that the next step of progress was slow. After ages, perhaps, some genius in the tribe saw fit to imitate the form of animals— and the turtle, the beaver, the bird, the snake, the fish, with the bead of the deer and horned sheep, can be seen as the re sult of this evolution of ideas, and these are not so numerous and are of a little better, but still far from artistic finish. None of these are found to be of topas, agate or cornelian, although tlie brittle and easily worked obsidean was freely used. At length some Tubal Cain came upon ' the field of action, and struck out for 1 himself a new design. The arrow-head was no longer to be an imitation of some ; known object, it has to be made for use. ' A more delicate taper was put upon the 1 points, the sides were chipped so as to ’ resemble saw teeth when finished. The arrow was made thin over the whole sur ’ face instead of halfway as formerly. The 1 barbs were made long and sharp, the part 1 fastened to the shaft was curved inwardly 1 so as to be strongly held to its place by 1 the deer thong. The eye of the artist sought out precious metal in bright and 1 pleasing colors. It was discovered that agate could be split and chipped, and it became common. The topas was brought from a distance and worked with wonder -1 ful care; various kinds of chalcedony were ’ sought out, doubtless lor the sake of their beauty, and wrought carefully to • the ideal of perfection. | Of this latter development there were out three forms of the finished arrow head. The first was cut to hold the sinew upon both sides and directly in the cen ter, the second upon the sides but cutting out backward, the third began at the base and worked toward the center, the | last two had sharp barbs at the base, the first only a cutting edge. ; Some will dispute about their being three forms of this last and latest arrow , head, but of other specimens there are so , tew that we place them to the credit of accident rather than design. The mak \ ing of the arrow head is unknown to the I Indians in this region. Vanesto, a sub . chief of the Umatillas, says: “They , were made a long time ago.” Lewis and , Clark describe the tool used in making to t a deer horn, and David Todd, of Wallula, , has ten of these tools, found on the Col- I umbia. Just what they used to break off the large spalls from the body of the , atone is unknown. One informant claims the large stone was laid upon the sharp , edge of another and weighted upon each I side. The heat of the son broke the , weighted stone on the line of pressure. . This would not do the work of spall mak f ing, although it might reduce the stone , in sise. Any one taking a bone or soft , piece of metal, holding the flint firmly , upon a piece of board with the flint edge . over the board and pressing with the tool f down and under, can see how the arrow . was made from the spall. The barb was fashioned in the same way with a smaller \ tool, round in shape, while the flat rib nf a deer would do tbs first work well. I . believe that for a long period stone pes tela were used as hammers and to spall the sides also. The later and better | work was done by friction applied over | or under, tlie pressure exerted being upon 1 the line of fracture desired. Flint and agate harden and case harden in the sun. They also get a polish by the action of the elements. It is doubt- ful if there is any genuine flint, inch as ia found in other states, upon the banks of the Columbia. Petrified roots of trees, body and bark of trees, is the principal substance used. This, when found in large piece* and hut lately petrified, must have been easy to work. A Iw-Ku Scran. In order to keep up with the baseball times, a Dakota minister recently preach ed the following sermon: Mr. Christian players, it is now time for you to begin to bat Satan’s curves. Do not pound the air, but bat him over the fence. Get on the diamond of Chris tianity and catch every fly made by Sa tan’s men. You should make a home run for mortality, and the aide of the right. No one-bagger will tally on the great judgment sheet. Every player should make a score of earned runs lor re ligion. Do not steal out to far from the base of rectitude, and get out on third. The devil may hold the boll in his band and deceive and rub it on you when 3*oo are not watching. Never, my Chrstian nine, never try to slide in on someother member’s faults. The errors made by other members of your club will not save you on second. Every Christian team should stand on ita own merits and good Cbrietian playing. You should strike for heaven’s eake, right from the shoulder, and do not knock sky fouls for Satans's men to catch. Make no balks in your unerring faith, and in the great judgment day you will receive as your reward 75 per cent, of tlie gate receipts. TIE INIVaSiIYLANDS. Cmlm Uußaiwn KtSltfenrirf SaW.

Under the terms of the enabling act enough land, in addition to that already supplied to the territorial university, to make up 72 section is granted to the state for university purposes. The matter has been investigated by the Prtu, and it looks as though the state university will be entirely without land. Congress granted Washington territory two townships or 72 sections of land for the purpose of establishing a university. In 1861 the legislature of the territory cre ated a board of university commissioners, gave them the authority to select the lands granted for university purposes and to sell them for not less than $1.20 per acre. The best authorities allege that the legislature bad no more right to do this than the evil one had to give the Savior authority over all the kingdoms of the world so that all might fall down and worship him. The fact of the business was that the evil one did not own a foot of land, neither had the legislature any right, legal or otherwise to despoae of a foot of the land. A large number of sales were made at SI.BO per acre, and out of the proceeds so obtained, the present university was built. The commissioners, looking op the law, found that they had no authority what ever to make such sales. That without the sanction of congress was obtained, the sales were null and void. In order to obtain this sanction they porceeded to the city of Washington and induced congress to pass a law legalising the sales. They succeeded in having a law passed confirm ing and ratifying the sales made before the passage of the law, provided they were made in good faith. The evidence thereof had to be submitted to the secre tary of the Interior, and if the showing was satisfactory to him he approved of the same and so legalised the title. How much land was sold by said com missioners prior to the passage of the act has never been definitely ascertained. Judge Orange Jacobs, who for ten years was regent of the state univerity, and who gave the matter special attention while serving in that capacity was seen to-day and asked: “How much of the territorial university lands have been selected ?” “1 am utterly unable to state the quan tity of University lands that has been dis posed of," replied the judge, "nor am I able to state what quantity of the two townships granted to the university is now owned by that institution. When I was regent of the university it was my desire that Mr. Brown, formerly register of the land office at Olympia, be sent to Washington City to straighten the tan gled matter out and to ascertain definite ly the following points: First, the quan tity of university lands that had been se lected ; second, the quantity of university lands sold; third, the quantity still owned by the university. There were no funds with which to pay Mr. Browm for this mission, and be never was sent upon it "So far as I know, the university lands are in a state of hopeless uncertainty at the present time. Men are constantly presenting deeds that are dated prior to the confirmation act of congress of March 14,1867. No record is kept, so far as I know, by the board of university com missioners of these sales. The whole matter is in such a fearful tangle that it will require the work of experts to straighten it out. It is my opinion that but little, if any, of the university lands are left.— SemtUe Preu.

President Hill of the Manitoba has is* sned from New York the following letter to stockholders, which explains itself and accounts for several things: Control has been obtained of the Great Northern railway company of Minnesota. It mill have an authorized capital of $40,- 000,000, ot which 912,000,000 will be pre ferred stock, entitled to dividends in preference at the rate of 6 per cent, per annum, noii-accuinulative and free from taxes. No addition can be made to this preferred stock without the consent of three-fourths of all the preferred stock outstanding. The common stock will be retained by the Great Northern railway company, subject to future disposition for its benefits. The entire $40,000,000 of preferred stock in the Great Northern rail way company is offered to the stockhold ers of this company, of record on the 16th day of November, 1880, each stock holder having the privilege of taking one share of the Great Northern preferred stock for each share of Manitoba stock held by him. This preferred stock will )« issued at par, but the stockholders of the Manitoba company will only bo re quired to pay S6O per share in cash, the othe other S6O being paid by the transfer to the new company of the assets already mentioned, exceeding $22,000,000, hut subject to the lien of the collateral trust mortgage of $8,000,000. Htockholders will lie allowed until the 27th day day of No vember, 1880, within which to exercise options. Roods secured by the collateral trust mortgage of this company for SB,- 000,000 will be accepted on account of subscriptions to the preferred stocks. The Great Northern railway company will pay off and cancel the $8,000,000 collat eral trust mortgage bonds of the Manitoba company. All the stock in railway and steamboat company, transferred to the Great Northern railway company, will be deposited in trust so as to retain their control for the benefit of both companies, thus assuring the unity of the entire system. The St. Paul, Minneapolis A Manitoba will, when the foregoing terms have been complied with, execute a lease of all their railways, rolling stock and equipment loaned, leased or controlled by it to the Great Northern railway company for a term of not less than 99 years, in consid eration of a rental which the Great Nor thern railway company agrees to pay, sufficient to provide for guaranteed divi den da upon the entire capital atock of the Manitoba railway company, $20,000,000, during the period of the lease at the rate of 6 per cent, per annum, free oT taxes, in quarterly installments, on the first days February, May, August and November in each year, together with all taxes, assess meats, interests on bonds and other cur rent obligationa of the company ef every kind, the Great Northern railway com pany guaranteeing all the obligationa of the Manitoba company and indemnifying it against all liabilities. The St Paul Globe devotes considerable space to the circular, commenting on it in the following language: Such is an outline of the scheme which the fertile brain of J. J. Hill has been gestating for some time. The publication of the circular giving details caused con siderable comment among railroad men yesterday. The general opinion seems to be that there is more behind it than ap pears on the face. In the first place it doubles the capital stock of the Manitoba road. The last annual statement of this road showing a heavy falling off from its receipts ot last year, was more than a dis appointment to every one. The reason for its loss is to be sought in the fact that the extension of the road that runs out into Montana is in a region of country that is absolutely unsettled. While there is a good local traffic in parts of northwestern Dakota, the divisions from there west to Great Falls are practically uninhabited save by a few prairie dogs.
