Vicksburo, Fob. 10.—A rapid risn of the
river is causing much alarm in this section. A
teleg am was roceived by Captain W. Ij.
Marshall, United States engineer in charge of
this district, from the office of chief engineer at
Washington, inquiring concerning the approach
ing flood, and asking tho condition of the
Lousiana levees from the state line to the mouth
of tho Bed river, and also the expected height of
tbe flood. Captain Marshall answerod, that he
feared the water would attain fcuch a
height as te seriously threaten
the luvepfi, that all the gaps in the Louisiana
levees from Aston to Vicksburg wero closed, ex
cf pt the gap at Montgomery's, fonr miles below
Lake Providence. Here the ruu around is be
ing built by tha state of Louisiana, but the work
is rather backward. Msrsh-Il states that if the
state authorities aro not prevented by the con
tractors from receiving such assistance, he will
take the responsibility of placing a force at
work at once, if nseded. Information was re
ceived to-day to tho effect that the Oppotum
Fork leree, Arkansas, for want of sufficient
means, wiil not bo in a condition to withstand
high water, as last, year, over2C0,()00 cubic yards
being still required to complote the work
to one foot abnve tho high water mark of that
year. The main gap in that important lino,
how ver, will bo closed and the quantity of
water inundating northern Louisiana will be
much reduced The levees in this, the second
Mississippi district, are in a bettor condition
than ever before in the history of the levees in
this state; but the head of the Yazoo river is
still onec in tho Upper Mississippi district.
Water is now flowing into 8t. Fiancis basin and
will begin to inundate the low lands of the up
per Mississippi district at about thirty-three
feet, Memphis gauge. AtLe-ris Swamp, Cou
>na county, below Flair's Point, avA at many
places above in Conma, De Sota and Tunica
counties, it is about the Sams stage. At the
present rate it wi'l be sevornl days before the
river can do damage, as the rise will not reach
the upper Mississippi before that time.

There is a vast amount of what is called
'covering" claims carried on by settlers
in Dakota. It generally amounts to only
a scare crow to ward off new comers who
are timid and do not want to be involved
in trouble. The Hudeon Herald, in Dick
ey county, relates tho following, which is
causing a good deal of indignation and
very likely will be settled by a vigilance
committee: There i-eems to be a family
located on section 20, 130-60, that are at
tempting to cover twelve qnarter sections,
although they do not as much as make an
attempt to live on but one or two of them.
If anyone is seeu by them to be looking
at or even paesiug over one of the claims
they pretend to bold, they go to him, tak
ing n long their Winchesters, and threaten
to shoot him if seen there again. One gen
tleman last fall put up a shanty on one of
the claims. At night several shots were fired
in the vicinity of Ihe shanty to frighten
him. The next day the jumper went to
Ellendtle on business, and on his return
he found that his shanty had been chopped
down and split up and notice left that if
he attempted to hold the claim they would
kill him. A short time ago Mr. Elmer
Western put up a shanty on one of them,
and in doing so, caught cold and was laid
up at his mother's. On visiting the claim
a few days later, he found his shanty had

Tt I? a scant wonder, though, when one
conies to think about it, that when men who
have toiled and delved nearly all their Uves
and never succeeded in scraping together as
much as $100 at a time were Suddenly masters
of $10,000 or 920,000, th-ir greatest ttouble
was to know what to buy first. The luxui-y
of purchasing intoxicated them, and no won
der they bought diamonds before dinners.
There is an old story—and it is likely a true
one—that one blustering winter night
a miner who had just made a big
haul wa-* standing on a street corner
in Leadville, when a hollow-eyed Woman,
clutching a ragged shawl about her shiveriug
shoulders, drifted up and stopped irreso
lutely. There was famine in her eye and
desperation in her rasrs. The miner was un
used to ladies' society and felt embarrassed,
but he felt also that s^ie was in distress, and
in the flush of his prosperity and bigness of
his heart he wanted to do something for her.
Finally he said:
" AVait here a minute, missus; 111 b? right
In ,1 short time he returned, and pressing a
bundle into her hands, hurried away before
she could stammer out her tearful thanks.
The outcast opened the package eagerly. It
contained a pair of silk stockings.
Among the people I knew around the camp
was a man named Ed Braden. who dividet
his time between reporting on a newspaper
and prospecting, and who loved to tell what
good and noble and sensible things he would
do should he hapjien to strike it. When for
tune did smile on him one day, he launched
immediately upon several enterprises not con
templated in the original prospectus. Amoug
other vagaries he became enamored of a
vivacious littl" soubrette who was playing at
the opera house, and arranged a unique and
remarkable testimonial to her beauty and
talents. At great expense he procured from
Denver some twenty or thirty hot-house
bouquets. The holders of these he had
weighted with a leaden spike—point down
ward, so when it was thrown upon the stage
it would stick in the boards and stand erect.
His idea was to precipitate the whole number
at once when the soubrette made her appear
auce, end, to use his own language, "trans
form the stage into a bower of roses." To
this end he had a number of friends stationed
at different points in the audience, each bear
ing a deadly bouquet.
The curtain rose, the actress tripped on,
when bang! bang! bang I the flowc-r-decked
missiles hurtled through the air. The poor
girl, who had read something of wild west
ern ways, thought it was a plot to kill her,
and flod to the cellar, from which she had to
be subsequently dragged by main force, utter
ing piercing shrieks. The Braden party
were all somewhat inebriated and the more
enthusiastic fired their bouquets with such
reckless aim that one of them hit the leader
of the orchestra on the bald head, and he
had to be held by two men while the gore
was being mopped off and explanations
made. All went a great ways toward
marring what might have otherwise been a
pleasant occasion. This is a fair specimen of
the pursuits in which Braden spent a very
decent fortune and succeeded in three brief
months in getting back into scrub-journalism
and prospecting again.
A contemporaneous gentleman of f ortune
was Capt. Connors, well known to all resi
dents of the camp. He has often told me the
story of his first "stake." He received S40,
000 for his interest in some mineral property,
and it was paid to him at the bank in four
rectangular packages of bills of $10,000 each.
The captain had kept his good fortune a se
cret from his wife and he hurried homo to
tell her. She was sitting down after a hard
day's work, and without a word he dropped
the armful of greenbacks in her lap. It was
a loyal and touching thing to do. For a mo
ment she sat pai-alyzed with astonishment,
aud then, hugging the mass up to her, she
sobbed out: .
"Oh, Tom, how dirty they are! Let me
put them in a tub and wash them."
"Do it if you want to, dear," he replied,
with a tenderness that it would be well for
other rich men of Colorado to emulate, "but
you will never wash anything else again."
One of these kings for a day, I oan't reea)'.
his name, but a subsequent, trial in the crim
inal court of Leadville in 1881, created quite
a sensation, made a lucky strike that netted
him §30,000 in cash. He at once wrote to his
wife of his good fortune, and intended to
leave for his home the following day. That
evening he was taken in tow by a couple of
these couriers of crime, and hi less than two
hours was gambled out of every dollar. He
made a complaint to the police, and the
larger portion of the money was recovered,
but too iate, for, hopeiess and distracted, he
had locked himself in his room and committed
It was by no means the rough and illiterate
who succeeded in making the most glaring
idiots of themselves under the stimulus of
sudden fortune, but a degree of prior culture
seemed to have the effect of adding a sort ot
weird and eccentric variety to their freaks.
A miner named Luke Fuller, a graduate of
Bowdoin and a man of really brilliant mind
and wide information, one afternoon, en
tirely unanticipated by himself, consummated
a sale that placed in his hands over $10,000.
It was to bo supposed that three or four yeai s
of grinding poverty had given him an appn
elation of tbe value of money, and he hail
never been known to drink or dissipate in
any form. To the surprise of everybody he
went on a monumental spree which he wound
up by talcing four or five boon companions
on a sort of triumphal tour into tbe cast.
The party stranded in Chicago and the next
time I saw Fuller he was in Saul's saloon de
straying a free lunch and furtively watchutf
tho bar-tender.
Another man of his stamp, known by a
pood many in this city, too. awoke one day
to And himself tolerably affluent, and in the
midst of an unusually fantastic celebration,
a ride around was suggested. The host in
sister! that for the purpose of observation
the glars sides of a hearse were peculiarly
adapted and two were hired. In these the re
velers esconced themselves and played poker
on the botttftn while the paralyzed populaca
looked aghast.
The lucky ones formed a sort of aristo-?
racy, and I do cot recall anything more ex
traordinary off the burlesque stage than the
soirees they used to give. Big, hulking fel
lows, v/ho didn't know a quadrille from a
quadroon, would amble around theMiall in
iress coats made in Denver, and their fingers,
unused to gloves, sticking out, separate from
each other, like radiating rays from a centrai
sun of white kid. Many of them were, in
deed, whited sepulchers, and would not stand
roo close analysis, even into their raiment.
On one occasion, while in the midst of a set
of the "Prairie Queen," a gentleman became
anraged at his "opposite," and incautiously
peeled *ff his swallow-tail to mop the waxed
iloor with him.revealing thereby tho mortify
ing fact that his collar, shirt-front and cuffs
were hollow and detached shams, and merely
pinned to the blue flannel shirt that long asso
ciation as a miner had made him loath to
part with. A bosom friend of this gentle
man was a gaunt, raw-boned farmer's boy,
who had wandered into the west and whom
riches had dragged out of the obscu
rity of prospect hole, stuck a diamond in his
bosom and dropped down into the midst of
:he ultra aristocratic circles. He distin
guished himself at his debut. A young lady
1 emarked to him that her sister had a pen

promptly replied: •

Under the mAral influence of a great illu

men should do to you, do ye oven so to them r'
•—in his lusv.riousiy furnished parlor at Wal
demere, his country seat near Bridgeport, tho
reporter found the venerable showman, P. T.
Barnum. Piuaip, ruddy, lively and active,
the vetemn looked as if he had juggled away
a score, at least, of his seventy-four years.
''But I'm getting pretty well along in yean, 9
he said, "for I was born oa July 5,1ST J.-'
''What is your actual present physical con
dition?" tli9 reporter asked, having in mind
Mr. Bamum's recent making of that stu
pendous 700-p^ge wil'
"I don't positively know, without trying
whether I could turn a somersault or not, but
the chances are that I could, at least as well
as ever. At all event?. I never was better in
my life. I eat well, sleep well, aud enjoy the
most perfect he.ilth. Perhaps to maintain
this condition I should walk more than I do,
but I walk some, and go out riding every
day twice. All the disease I have is old age,
and my neighbors say I should not plead
that, for I'm as young as most men of 00.
The sickness I had in Now York three years
ago, when the doctors gave me up, was the
only one I had in many years, and seems to
have renovated me—givou me a new leaso of
"What have bet-n and are the personal
habits that have conduced to such a good re
"Primarily, regularity; secondarily, absti
nence from things that t.-ivl to shorten Ufa
Sometimes, when my neighbors do not como
to me, I go out to them in the evenings aud
play a gamo of whist, and occasionally I go
to tho theatre, but as a nile I am in bc?d by
10 o'clock every night. AU my work, di
recting my personal business, conducting my
correspondence, and communicating with
my partners, I do iu the forenoons,
getting through it in time for a
drive before my dinner, which I take in the
middle of the day. After dinner I am accus
tomed to dozs for three or five minute.-. If I
just lose consciousness that long I am as
much refreshed as if I had slept for hours.
After that I take another drive. In the
evening an hour's reading, a few games of
cribbage or whist, or a little music tills up
tho time until my hour of rotiring. I am
always up by 7 o'clock in the morning."
"How long have you maintained such reg
ular habits?"
"As far as practicable sinc,e 1847, when I
became a teetotaller, although when I was
a traveling showman my hours were neces
sarily not so good."
"Did you drink much prior to 18-17?"
"Well, I wouldn't have allowed anybody to
tell me so, but when I look back over that
time I know now that I did. When I built
my magnificent Oriental country seat Ii-ani.-,
tan, I was proud of the house, but ten times
proudc-r of my wine-cellar than of anything
else I had. I was not in the habit of drink
ing distilled liquors, but every day at dinner
took my bottle of champagne, or its equiva
lent in other wines or malt liquors. I did no
business after noon, and my mother-in-law
used to say sometimes that I was 'heady
after dinner. I felt quite offended by the
suggestion, and threatened to go back to
whisky if it was repeated, for I really consid
ered myself quite a temperance man, since I
drank only wine, and thought my after
dinner feelings were due to overeat
ing rather than drinking. But I got
the Rev. Dr. Chapin to come up to Bridge
port and deliver a temperance lecture, for
the subject of which he took "The Moderate
Drinker," and I saw myself in quite a now
light. I realized for the first time the bad
example I was setting, and when I went
home that night was so worried that I could
scarcely sleep. The next morning I had my
coachman knock the necks off all the cham
pagne bottles I had in my cellar, some five or
six dozen; the port and other medicinal wines
I gave away in cases of sickness, and the
liquors I returned to the dealers. That was
the end of my drinking. As young bumble
bees are biggest when they are first hatched,
so I was, in the first heat of my conversion,
an enthusiast on the subject of teetotalisru.
I went all over Connecticut and New York
delivering free lectures onjthe subject, and
even went out to Wisconsin, stumped the
state at my own exjpense, and at least heir; I
to carry it on a temperance platform.'*
"You swore off on tobacco alsoT
"Yes—or at least I stopped its use. I never
chewed, but I was a great smoker. When I
went over to Englancf lecturing, in 1S50, after
tho Jerome Clock company disaster over
whelmed me, I was in such a situation that
every pound was of importance to me, and as
1 was then using every week a sovereign's
worth of cigars I thought I would practice
economy and stop it. One Sunday I chewed
chamomile flowers all day instead of smoking,
by a druggist's advice, and they almost killed
me. The next day I went to smoking again,
;nd continued it up to 1870. I could give up
liquor easily enough, but not tobacco, and I
averaged ten cigars a day. One day in I860, on
my way dowu to the museum, I felt a strange
choking sensation away down in my throat,
and then a throbbing or palpitation of my
heart. I had noticed it a little for a year be
lore, but paid no particular attention to it
until then. I asked my manager, Green
wood, what it was, and he said it was heart
disease, and tho symptoms I described a.s
mine meant death. That scared me pretty
oadly. I determined to give up business at
once, retire to tho country, and prepare to
die, but before doing so consulted Dr. Willard
Parker. He examined me, and said: 'You
may have a very hard heart, for all I know,
but you have as strong a one as there is in
New York. Nicotine is all that is the matter
with you. Stop smoking.' I did so at once,
1 was so scared, and never smoked again.
For a year, however, I used to cany bits of
i a.lamus in my pocket to chew on when 1
wanted to smoke."
"So in your unregenerate state you used to
drink and smoke. Did you gamble'"
"No, never. I never even speculated in
stocks but once in my life. That was in tho
time of the great panic, ten years or more
ago. I had some money lying idle in bank,
and, seeing everything tumble down to the
lowest point apparently, I thought it would
be a good time to buy and hold on for a raise.
Jioltook down $100,000 to Hatch & Foote
and told them to put it in whatever they
ihought best. They invested It, and I thought
I was sure of making $25,000 anyway, but
on the whole I lost. Some of my stocks
went up eventually, but others went down,
and I was a loser. With that exception I
have owned no railroad stocks or other specu
lative securities. I have my legitimate busi
ness asashowman, and want no other. In
it I never made a mistake, but whenever I
-■tepped outside it, was pretty sure to."
Evolution ef the Turtle.
[Boston Telegraph.]
Moreover, the turtle which, in the usual
forms, is unable to see the world except by
telescoping hi3 head out horizontally, and
running the risk of scraping his forehead
against his shell every time he does so, ac
quires from more elevating conditions of life
—the absence of enemies and the possession
of a strong carnivorous set of teeth of his own
—a long neck, which is not retractile. Put
ting out his head one day, it occurred to an
enterprising turtle that he might as well keep
it out. Nothing came near him to bite it off;
no danger threatened. So he went about
with his neck out. By and by, it oecured to
him to bully a little lizard that passed him,
and the lizard ran away. So, after that, in
stead of running away from lizards himself,
he always ran after them, and, when he
caught them, ate them.
By this date he had got up so proud and
stiff-necked that he never thought of pulling
his head inside his shell at ail, aud as a fact
could not have done it if he had wanted to.
For it had become.perHianently stiffened from
disuse. Even when he went to sleep he
curled his head round on hhj shoulder, instead
of putting it under his shell. But all this
while there was a little plate of shell protrud
ing over the back of his neck, which pre*

Death is sometimes unmerciful in his tardi
ness. It would have been better for the
queen of England if she had died before John
Brown. Her crazy memorials of the gillie

climax of a hie otherwise devoted and proper.
If occupying a private station she would have

statues of the Scotchman can be accounted
for od no other theory—has become a na

and disgrace, humiliating and shameful to
ruler and subject alike.
Oyster Culture in England. ~\,
Tho past season has again been vory dis
couraging to oyster cultivators in England,
and the conviction has been forced upon
them that further experiments will be only
a wuste of money. From one end of the
southern coasts of England to the other
thousands of pounds have been expended in
endeavoring to protect the spawn at spawn
ing time, but without the least sign of suc
cess. The cause of the failure is the want of
temperature. Ouly nativo oysters will breed
iu tho estuaries of the Thames, but of late
years the summers have been so short and
cold that there has been but very little spat,
and this is tho reason of the scarcity and con
sequent dearness of the "native," which the
English esteem the best of all oysters. Arti
ficial breeding in England has been a failure.
The only real success in the artificial breed
ing of oysters bus been achieved at Arcachon,
in the south of France, but even there, dur
ing tho last two or three cold and wet sum
mers, the crop of spat has been only about
ono-fourth of what it has usually been.
A Substitute for HutrUrs.
[Chicago Times.]
Countless accidents, as everyone knows,
arise from the use of matches. To obtain
light without employing thom, and so with
out the danger of setting things on fire, an
ingenious contrivance is now used by the
watchmen of Paris in all magazines wh n
explosive or iuflammablo materials aro kept.
Anyone may easily make trial of it. Take
an oblong vial of the whitest and clearest
glass, and put into it a piece of phosphorus
about the size of a pea. Pour some olive oil
heated to the boiling point upon the phos
phorus; fill tho vial about one-third full, and
then cork it tightly. To use this novel light,
remove the cork, allow the air to enter the
vial, and then reeork it. The empty space
in the vial will become luminous, and the
light obtained will bs equal to that of a
lamp. When the light grows dim, its power
can be increased by taking out tho cork and
allowing a fresh supply of air to enter the
vial. In winter it is sometimes necessary to
heat the vial between the hands in order to
increase the fluidity of the oil. The appa
ratus thus made may be u-ed for six months.
I Tongue-Tying.
[Chicago Tribune.]
An ingenious method of putting a check
upon chatter has been devised by a school
teacher, who was recently charged in a Lon
don police court with assaulting one of his
pupils. The defendant, it appeared, being
displeased with a boy who persisted in talk
ing during lesson-time, fastened a strap with
a slip-knot around the tongue of the offender
and tneu tied the other end of the strap by a
piece of string to a chair, thus effectually
preventing a continuance of the nuisance.
After hearing the evidence the magistrate
dismis-ied the summons on the ground that
the tying of the boy's tongue was not any
real punishment. The boy seemed to have
been very much given to talking, and it wa .
therefore thought advisable to degrade him
the same as by putting a fool's cap on his
bead or tying the arms of a boy given to
fighting. The London St. James' Gazette ad
vocates a similar contrivance for irish'mem
bers of parliament.
Had an Object in View.
[Wall Street News.]

Birmingham, Ala., in search of a coal or iron
mine at a bargain, a native accosted him
with a request for 10 cents, and added:
"Only yesterday I owned a coal mine
worth $20,000."
"And why don't you own it to-day?"
"Because a man got me drunk and coaxed
me to trade it for an old mule."
"And how will 10 cents help you?"
"Why, I want it to buy whisky to got him
drunk enough to trade back for a blind dog
and an old shotgun. Stranger, don't let me
