ICE RESERVOIRS. 7~
Caves in Different Countries Where
Ice May Be Got the Year
Round.
[New York News.]
In many countries ice is obtained from
natural ice-houses, wherein, while the ordi
nary temperature outside is 80 degrees, ice is
continually forming. Such a ravine or
cavern has been found in New Jersey, and
near Lincoln, Vermont, there is a glen in
which snow and ice lie all the year round.
One of the most remarkable of these ice
caverns is that of Dobschan, in Hungary.
It is quite near the town, and is approached
though a narrow, winding limestone valley,
called -'.Stracenaer Thai." It is in the interior
of a mountain, having a general direction
east and west. The entrance is near the top
and extremely narrow, and was only discov
ered by accident. Once, inside, a remark
able scene is beheld, the ice, which sterns
formed in many layers, having assumed all
the peculiar shapes that characterize the
limestone caves of our own country. The
total rock and ice surface in the cave alonfi
occupy about 21,000 square feet.
The cave is divided into two parts, upper
and lower. In the upper pait the roof is of
limestone, and the floor of solid ice, and it is
divided into two great halls of wondrous
beauty. The roof of the largest hall is sup
ported by three enormous pillars of clear ice,
one of which is hollow, and through which
flows a stream from above, producing strange
echoes and reverberations. All about are
fantastic forms of ice resembling human be
ings, pulpits, monuments an I so on, giving
to the cave a most grotesque appearance. Iv
one end the ice- forms an exact representation
of a large cascade as if a rushing stream with
its spray had suddenly been frozen solid. De
scending to the lower room the passage is
000 feet in length, and by following
down through the ice you come to the nat
ural outletl of the water.
In all countries such caves have beeu
found. So extensive is the ice cavern on tho
peak of Tcneriffe tha'-. it affords a permanent
source of supply, and even vessels are loade .
with its ice. This ice is columnar in shape,
and does not melt easily, and so can be trans
ported without great loss. Near the village
of Stelitze, in the Cai-pathian mountains,
there is one of the largest ice caverns in tiic
world, and, curiously enough, it freezes intiie
summer and melts in the winter. For in
stance, in midsummer the roof is ontiroly cov
ered with icicles, but in winter they disap
pear, and by Christinas time the cavern is dry
and warm compared to the outside world.
Ice begins to form as soon as the spring opens.
In some deep mines ice forms at certain pe
riods. This is the case in some of the salt
mines of the Ural mountains. Great cavities
are formed iv the gypsum, and in rho winter
they are filled with clear water, but in tho
summer they are frozen solid.
We have similar cases nearer home. In
this state there are several ice wells, and an
ice cave has been found at Decorah, lowa.
The ".Many Old Friends."
[S.«n Francisco Call.]
It was so long since I had met Gen. Han
cock that I was prepared to receive new im
pressions of him during the course of a pleas
ant chat the other day. I did not, however, j
He is now, as he always has been to men, a
constant surprise: ha talks so very much
better than 1 expected him to. He looki like I
a man meant for very big work, ami cer- i
tainly he has lived up to his looks, but '
such men seldom talk much or well. How
ever, I am not going to discuss his
powers as a conversationalist. I was only
wondering if many people would have sus
pected, as I did, that the general was indulg
in some mild irony when he said to me: "I
have not been here in over a score of years,
and am consequently surprised at the num
ber of old friends who remember me." What |
made me skeptical of his sincerity was a sud
den recollection of a conversation I had with
Modjeska during her first appearance here in
California. "I am made so pleased,'' said the
madame, who had not then mastered our
idom, "by the many old friends I haf here."
"Old friends here'" I asked.
"Yes. Only this day a card is sent to my
apartment; the name is a Polish one; I say
the gentleman may present himself. Well
he did, and he say to me, 'Madame, I am de
lighted to salute you, for I claim the honor
of an old acquaintance.' 'With me?' I say,
'but one is so stupid, for I cannot recall
where I haf meet you.' 'No, madame,' he
say, 'not so great an honor as that; but my
father, forty years ago, he make the brick of
which your father build his house in War
saw.' "
After a pause Modjeska added to me, with
her charming naivete: "It is pleasant, is it
not? But forty years is so long for one to
remember who is not yet 40."
Knott's Strategy.
[Arkansaw Traveler.]
Proctor Knott, governor of Kentucky, is a
great story teller. Several days ago an old
fellow, whose son was sentenced to be
hanged, called on Gov. Knott, and begged
for the commutation of the sentence. "Sit
down," said the governor; "want a commu
tation, eh? That reminds me of something
that occurred in Missouri when I was a young
man. An old man's son, you fiee, had stolen
a watermelon from a marketer's wagon, and
his father decided to whip him. Well, the
boy figured around awhile and finally gave
his father half the fruit as a compromise.
You have heard of old Maj. Wittleson,
haven't you? I was out to his house one day
not long ago—" "Governor, I am in a hurry.
My son is to be hanged to-morrow, and un
less I can do something to-day he will be
lost." "Sit down and let me tell you." And
the governor told a story that made the old
fellow laugh so that he got up, slapped Proc
tor on the shoulder, and went awaj T, having
forgotten the mission which had takea him
to the executive chamber.
21 r. nflaiiie's uous.
[Washington Cor. Springfield Republican.]
Mr. Blame furnishes his manuscript so
slowly that his publishers are complaining
about it. Polities and the impulses of a se
cret ambition are interfering with it. The
story reaches here from his Norwich publish
ers that thej r had to give him §75,000 as a
bonus and 15 cents on every set sold. As they
have already orders for 100,000 sets, Blame's
profits will run quite high. Blame was in
veiy poor health after he left Arthur's cabi
net. His physician here and Dr. Hammond,
of New York, told him that he must either go
to Europe in good company' for a year or two
or else get some absorbing but not exciting
occupation for his mind. He did not want to
go to Europe, and while he was puzzling over
something to do he went one day to the con
gressional library. While there his eye fell
on "Benton's Thirty Years' View." Ho says
it came over him like a flash that it would
be delightful work to put his twenty years'
sxperience on paper, and he saw that the
problem of an occupation had been solved,
rhat explains the cause of Blame's journey
into the sea of literature.
How to Make a Bed.
[Philadelphia Press.]
Let every bed maker, as soon as all the
covers are spread, turn down the upper
sheet, and all above it, leaving a generous
nargin below the bolster. Some people,
rou know, put all the covers straight up to
:he top and lay the bolster upon them, so
that when bedtime comes the bed must be
rearranged at the head. Boys don't like this
way, and perhaps some other folks don't,
either. It is the custom to pile two big,
square pillows on the top of the bolster, and
then put on two pillow-shams, and then,
sometimes, or perhaps before the
pillow-shams, a sheet-sham. This is
setting a trap for the unwary.
Only a remarkably careful woman is equal
to the task of getting off all the 'finery' prop
•rly. Why not almost, if not altoge her,
bolish shams of all kinds? Why ut hon
estly take off the big square pillows and
supyly every bed with a comfortable bolster
to take the place of pillows? If you like
adornment, embroider or decorate the slips
and sheets themselves without any make-be
lieve. Silk, lace and the like seem out of
place on a bed, which should suggest repose.
Imagine a big boy with boots on flinging him
self into the midst of a fairy creation of pink
satin and torchon! Let the beds be what
they look like, and let them look like
(vhat they are—real resting-places.

THE ST. PAUL DAILY GLOBE, FRIDAY MORXIXG, FEBRUARY 29, 1834.
SIX ETCHES OF STBHTG.
The Story of a Factory That Covers
an Entire Block in .Yew York
City.
[New York Sun.] " '""
"You see that large factory? It covers the
entire block. Half a million of morey
wouldn't buy it. Well, it was built by a lit
tle piece of cord not more than six inches
long." Here the sp9aker paused and scru
tinized the reporters countenance for indica
tions of incredulity, not to say astonishment.
But the narrator was talking to a man who,
since the introduction of the telephone, has
male it a point of principle to be ready for
anything and to believe all that he hears.
The speaker added;
'•Eight years ago there lived on the west
side, in the third story of a cheap tenement,
dovs □ near the North river, a poor mechanic,
who was kept poor because he had a passion
for inventing; it amounted to a passion. Ho
didn't drink and didn't travel with the poli
ticians, and all who knew his family wond
ered why they should be so poor. Time
passe 1 on, an l still the man was poor. But
at last he perfected an invention—the sim
plest thing on earth—and with his patent in
his hand he went down town one day, and
called for the head of a house whose check
was current for five figures anywhere in 'the
street.' The inventor offered to sell two
thirds of his patent for $20,000 if the house
would bind itself to put $100,000 into factor
ies for producing the littit thing that he had
invented. The firm signed papers iv less than
an hour from the time of hearing the pro
posal, and in another hour the inventor had
converted the firm's check for $30,000 into
greenbacks. Lots were bought and a factory
was erected. The business speedily grew to
gigantic proportions, and at length ;he firm
acquired all the rest of the block, and cov
ered it with brick and mortar, and now the
inventor is able to associate with the million
aires. The little glove fastener—a piece of
cord about six inches long and a dozen little
metal hooks or buttons—is the thing that was
invented.
"So much for nn° man who was concerned
in gloves. Others have made fortunes out of
them aud lost the money in other enterprises.
I recall a case of a merchant whose net profit
on gloves was SUJ.OOO a year. Someoftho
New Yorkers who sent their money down to
the gold belt of Georgia about two years ago
got his ear before they had lost $73,000, and
lie took the gold-mining fever. Off to Georgia
he posted. Yes, there was gold in the hillsof
tho Empire state of the south. He returned j
to New York aud sold out his business and j
back to Georgia ho went. And there he is |
delving iv Georgia mud and wishing himself !
back at his buttcn business in New Yo,-k
city."
Tin? Army Mule. "^H^
["Army Life," by A. O. Marshall.]
The train wa came with from Pilot Knob
this time is made up of raw mules that have j
never before bec-n hitched to army wagons. I
it has been fun alive to see the teamsters at
tempt to drive the stubborn, unbroken !
animals. At first it was a continual runaway j
t trough the entire line. But beiug in the |
woods all the time, the only result would be
that the ponderous army wagon would iv a
moment be caught upon a tree and then the
mules would become entangled together and
tumble in a heap. Teething to do now was
to entangle the huge pile of mules. Let im
agination picture the scene. Sometimes in a
fierce run a small tree would be bent over by
the force with which the mules would strike
i i and then regaining its strength would
straighten up, end thu^ frequently a team of
the smaller mules would be found hanging
up in a tree.
An army team consists of six mules. The
two largest ones being the wheel mules aud
the smallest two tae lead mules. The entire i
team is driven by a single line running up to
the bridle of tire right lead mule. A steady
pull on the line means that the lead mule is
to turn to the left, quick jerks tell him to
turn to the right. It is wonderful how soon
a raw mule can be taught to obey this awk
ward mode of indicating to him whicii way
he is to go. T.-'ith this single line the driver
riding one of the wheel mules guides his
team of six through many of the most diffi
cult and dangerous places. The army mule
occupies a place that no other animal could
so well fill. His life in the army shows that
the mule has never been fully appreciated
In reputation a mule is concentrated stub
bornncss and obstinacy. In reality he is
generally docile, faithful and tireless. Even
when running away a mulo team never gets
wildly crazy as horses often do. They never
knock their own brains out against a tree or
stone wall. Unless it is raw mules that have
never learned to pull a wagon, like those we
were driving on this trip, a runaway mule
team will only go so far as it can have a safe
place to run in. Of the hundreds of times
that 1 have known of a team of six mules
escaping from their drivers and starting on a
run. I have not seen any that would run any
farther than where they could find an open
read. Six horses in the same condition would
become so frightened that the wagon would
be broken to pieces and some of the horses
killed. The mule as an army mule is a suc
cess.
The Paris "Figaro."
[Paris Cor. Atlanta Constitution.]
The Figaro of Paris is a mighty power on
the continent of Europe. Its earlier years
were years of struggle and poverty, but its
profits last year were over §500,000 No
journal has a bolder, more talented editorial
staff, and no paper is more widely quoted,
praised and blamed. Mr. De Villemessant, a
born journalist, was the founder of The
Figaro. For a long time he was the editor
in-chief, head reporter, and business manager
of his journal.
When he died this work was parceled out
among three men, Magnard, Perivler, and
Dodays. To these three men De Villemessant
said on his dying bed: "Always make up the
paper as though you knew I was going to
read it the next morning." The placing of
this triumvirate at the head of The Figaro
was a wise selection. Magnard originated
the piquant epitome headed "Paris from Day
to Day"—a column made up of many articles
condensed from the newspapers of the pre
ceeding day. Each paragraph is short, terse,
and to the point—the quintessence of com
mon sense and condensation. Magnard's
leaders are signed "F. M.," and never exceed
forty lines of long primer. This phenomenal
journalist is a man of the size and build of
Gen. Grant, and is apparently about 44 years
of age. He is highly educated, a severe judge
of "copy," and is withal a very pleasant gen
tleman.
The staff of editorial writers is quite
numerous. One of the writers, M. Wolff,
earns as much as $15,000 a year. He is the
dramatic critic. On this journals reporters
receive from 6to 20 cents a line. The editorial
rooms are fitted up with every luxury and
convenience, embracing fencing-rooms, card
tables, etc. An American would not con
lider The Figaro a great newspaper, but it
certainly displays more enterprise in the
collection of news than any other journal in
Europe. It goes everywhere, and is read
with as much pleasure on our Pacific coast,
in South America, at the Cape of Good
Hope, in short all over the civilized world,
as it is the Parisian cafes. It is without ex
ception, the most cosmopolitan journal in
existence.

MACKEY'S RISE.
From a Louisville Bar-Keeper to a
Bonanza King.
inck In California and Consolidated
Virginia--- Wooing and Win*
nine a Charming
Widow.
[Louisville Courier-Journal.]
Among the numbers of men who have
leaped from comparative poverty and ob
scurity in this country, in the past half cen
tury, none stand out more prominently than
John W. Mackey, the California millionaire,
at present living in Paris. Although much
has been written and said about him, as a
! matter of course, but few persons are ac
| quainted with his early life, and the fact that
he was at one time a resident of this city has
never been made public. As a reporter was
passing down Main street yesterday, a gentle
j man standing at the corner of Twelfth street,
| remarked: '-You see that building over
; there?" pointing to the house on the north
j west corner of Twelfth and Main. Upon the
j reporter's replying in the affirmative, he con
j tinued: 'T suppose it would surprise a num-
J ber of persons to know that Mackey once
lived there, and kept a saloon. The story is
[ not generally known, as he was not a man of
: wide acquaintance, and when he left the
| city all thought of him died out. Of those
who used to take drinks from his hands across
I the counter, but few recognize him in his new
sphere.
BEHIND THE BAR.
"Along about 1545, Mackey came to this
city iv company with one or two others in
i search of employment. He was a young
i man, strong, active and willing to work at j
j almost anything which would afford him a
good living. An old two-story frame build- !
ing stood at the corner over there, and the !
front room bad been used as a saloon. The j
proprietor cosed up a few months before, I
however, and the building was left without a !
; tenant. Mackey had some little money, and
j as the location was a good one he resolved to i
! start a bar-room there. He made a bargain ■•
j with the proprietor and secured the place, !
| opening up about a week later. The room ■
; and its fixtures would be in strong contrast !
I with the fine saloons of the present day, with !
| their gilded counters and fancy bars." The i
| walls were covered with a simple coat of ;
white paint and the counter was a long nar- j
I row one made out of pine boards. Behind it i
j was a shelf on which sat some bottles and
glasses. His coming was not taken much
notice of and none felt enough interest to in- ]
quire from whence he came or who ho was. i
He was an energetic and industrious man. j
polite and attentive to his customers, and !
his short figure aud smiling face could be
; seen at all times behind the bar. He soon
I built up a very good trade, but he never ap
! peared satisfied. It was evident that he was
j not intended for .such an avocation in lif.-,
j as he was restless and like Micawber, con
| stantly waiting for something to turn up.
OFF TO CALIFORNIA.
"The long looked for day finally arrived,
and he started for California, little expecting
that such good fortune as fell to his lot was,
awaiting him. In 1549 the gold fever was at
its height, and every day emigrants were
leaving for the Pacific coast, eager to reap
the harvest of gold which they confidently
expected was waiting for them. Mackey
was oue of the first persons in this city to be
afflicted with the fever, and he endeavored to
induce a number of friends to go with him.
A party of about twenty-five was finally
made up, and ho was one of thj leaders in it.
! He sold his property interests for a small
sum, and that was the last heard of him until
he jumped suddenly into tho lap of fortune.
HIS CAREER.
"I was," said the gentleman, "in California
at the time of Lis arrival there, aud watched
his career wi'h considerable interest. He
had previous > known Flood and O'Brien and
they were very fast friends. The}' were at
that time keeping a saloon in San Francisco
and Mackey worked in the mines. The two
famous fields of wealth then were tho Cali
fornia and the Consolidated Virginia, and he
worked in both of them. He was a very
shrewd man, tolerably well educated, and
had some little knowledge of civil engineer
ing. He clearly saw that money invested in
the stock of either of these mines was sure to
bring good results, and every dollar he could
raise was invested in that way. At his in
stance Flood and O'Brien went in with him,
and the three purchased stock at S3 a share.
Soon afterward it went up to $7, and gradu
ally increased to 818. In this simple manner
their fortunes were made, and almost bafore
they knew it they were wealthy men. Mackey
then lived in a frame house on Sutter street,
and his figure became a familiar one to the
frequenters of the mines.
WINNING THE WIDOW.
"He was not married then, but met the
woman who became his wife soon afterward.
This in itself is a little romance and illustrates
his character. She was a widow when he be
came acquainted with her, and was the
daughter of Maj. Hungleford, of New
Orleans. She married a doctor and moved
to Nevada City, where the husband died
some time afterwards. He was a poor man,
and left his wife and child in rather destitute
circumstances. Mackey heard of this some
months later, and started a subscription for
the widow's benefit, contributing liberally
himself, and raising a neat little sum. This
so touched the widow's heart that she called
on him to thank him for his kindness. She
was young and pretty, with a childish face
and winning ways, and captured Mackey's
heart completely. His courtship was a quiet
one, and of short duration, and soon iSie
pretty widow united her destiny with his.
Mackey was then a rich man, but he kept
widening his field of action, until in connec
tion with Flood, O'Brien and Fair he estab
lished the Nevada bank, and Louis McClain
went from Baltimore to manage it.
AND SINCE.
"Since that time Mackey's career has been
familiar to almost every schoolboy. Un<
like the majority of men, however, he does
not forget that he was once dependent him
self, and his charity has been great. He is a
member of the Catholic church, and estab
lished an orphan asylum for the children of
that denomination in Nevada City, which he
still supports. He is always ready to give
for charity's sake, and in addition is polite
and courteous to everybodr."
Very Original Shares.
[San Francisco Chronicle.]
The landlord of the tavern "Landsknecht,"
in Berlin, has issued some very original
shares. They cost 86 cents each, for which
sum the landlord, who is a professional pig
sticker, besides being a good cook, provides
the shareholder on Mondays with a dish of
fried bacon, on Wednesdays with roast pork,
on Thursdays with fresh sausages of two
kinds, on Fridays with sausages and sauer
kraut, and on Saturdays with ham and
Burgundy.
An Inspiring Decision*
[Norristown Herald.]
One of the questions decided by the recent
union base ball convention was that "the
pitcher must deliver balls with his hand
lower than the shoulder." If this momentous
decision doesn't inspire fresh confidence in
business circles, and general ly augment the
genial spirit that generally prevails during
the holiday season, it will be strange.
It Touched the Spot.
[Oil City Blizzard.]
A Kentucky man took a dose of Rough on
Rats by mistake, and when tho thing began
to take hold of his stomach and churn it, he
swore by the great horn spoon that he hadn't
got hold of such bitters since before the war.
A Brigantine Wrecked.
New Tokk, Feb. 28.—A St. Thomas paper
received to-day, tells the story of the wreck of
a Norwegian brigantine on Disguilla reef
during a gale, and when all on board, except
the captain and boy, were down with Af
rican coast fever. All were rescued, however,
next morning.
Drowned or Starved.
Boston, Feb. 27.—A New London dis
