From the New York Sun.
The Carnegie expedition, which for
i thirter-n months has been exploring the
! great desert of W»st Australia, has re
turned. Its journey extended from tho
j well-known mining town of Coolgardle,
! in the couth-central part of the prov
j ince, to the Khnberley gold mines in
j the northwest of the continent. It
I traversed considerable territory not
previously visited and made some In
teresting discoveries.
Mr. Carnegie fitted out and command.
I eil the expedition. He had three white
! assistants, a black boy, eight baggage
i camels, and provisions for six months.
jHo started on July 9, 1896. About 2UO
j miles north of Coolgardte he entered
a part of the Great Vivtoria desert,
which no white man had seen before.
It was a most dc-solate region, with no I
I grass or other forage for the camels.
There were only spinlfex, acacia, and
other drawf shrubs in the way of vege-
I tation. After fourteen days' traveling
I neros-s this desert the water supply be
; csmc so far reduced that only a half j
pint a day was allowed for each person, j
At last, when only two gallons of water ]
remained, the party met some natives, !
one of whom they caught and finally
induced to pilot them to a water source.
He led them four miles away to a
waterhcle of a remarkable character.
It was, in fact, a limestone cave of
considerable extent. At the surface
was an opening three feet in diameter,
against which rested one end of a stout
pole about twenty feet long, the other j
end resting on the floor of the cave.
The natives had placed it there to i
facilitate their entrance and exit. Down \
the pole the white men scrambled and j
found themselves in a chamber of con
siderable size, from which they entered
a passage, with sloping floor, about
tv enty-flve feet in length and so low
that they had to make their way on
hands and knees. At the other end of
the passage they reached a fine brook
with plenty of clear, cold water that '
gave tife expedition an ample supply. |
Mr. Carnegie named this water source ]
"Kmpress Soak."
Around the cave there was good fod
der for the camels, and so they rested
there for three days. Then they went
on over the desert to the northeast, and
when near Mount Worsnop they were
I happy tc run across a lagoon with fresh
I water upon which numerous wild ducks
and other water fowls were swimming.
The lagoon had a circumference of
about a mile and the water was from
a foot and a half to five feet in depth.
The borders showed a fine growth of
mulg.i, acacia, and bioodwood trees,
and tbere was a grass-covered meadow
which gave much delight to the camels.
Mr. Carnegie named this water source
Woodhouse lagoon, and at this invit
ing spot they remained for three days.
Then they pushed north again over
the ironstone, on which a considerable
gicwth of the mulga tree flourishes.
They had an ample water supply, and
so did not suffer during the eight days
in which they saw no water. At the
end of this time they came to some
wells used by the natives, around which
grew plenty of waterlmsh, which was
highly relished By the camels. Fur
ther north, on the west side of the
Alfred and Maria range, they found an
cther small waterhole which had been
recently visited by the natives. All
tlicse discoveries of water in one of the
most frightful deserts of the world are
interesting because they were never
known before. In the next ten days
they found some areas that suggested
| rr.arsh land, but yielded very little
| water. Their supply became so short
I at last that they tried the experiment
i of digging through the sand, a difficult
urdertakinp, which occupied three
I days, and they were rewarded at last
by only ten gallons of very dirty water
after digging to a depth of thirty feet.
They had met a number of natives, and
for a few hours they kept an old wom
an in their camp in the hope that she
■would reveal the source of their water
supply. She would not give them a !
particle of information, and at last they
let her go.
The scarcity cf water and fodder con
tinued until the expedition had travel
ed as far north as Sturt creak. For !
days they had seen no-thing but high |
sand hills, spinifex, and ironstone. Not I
until they reached 19 degrees 20 min
utes south latitude was there a change
for the better. They came at last to
a region with a thick growth of scrub
where, however, they had the misfor
tune to lose three of their camels that
had eaten poisonous plants. Their
) troubles were not over even when they
reached the well-watered and grassy
district between Christmas creek and
the Margaret, river, for here they lost
Charles Stansrr.ore, Who accidentally
shot himself as he was getting ready to
fire at a kangaroo. Not long after
j they reached the Kimberley goM fields,
| where they replenished their supplies.
On the return journey they traveled,
for the most part, a little east of their
northern track to see if they could find
a good route with sufficient grass to be
used for driving cattle from the Kim
i berley district southward to the Cool
j gardie gold fields. They did not sue
! ceed in finding such a route, and a part
i of the region, if not. more desolate than
| that along their northern road, was
j more difficult to cross, for they were
| constantly ascending and descending
| high sand hills. In a distance of ten
' miles they crossed eighty-six of these
j hills.
The chief result of their explorations
! is the evidence they obtained that the
I most of the central part of West Aus-
t ralia offers no prospect of good graz
ing lands or mineral resources. In the
center of this great waste they found
a part of a saddle and an iron tent pin
of patterns that have not been in use
for many years, and they believe that
these objects are relics of the Leichardt
I c-xpedition, which nearly a half century
I ago was swallowed up in the desert,
md to this day nothing has been heard
of its fate.

Christina Tried to Sell Cuba und
the lMillli»i>inex for $4,000,000.
From the Allegheny Re-cord.
Manila was built in 1581. and has for over
three centuries been the scat of Spanish gov
ernment. But tenacious as her hold upoD
the Philippines and Cuba has been (last relics
almcst, of her once world-empire), Spain came
near parting with both these possessions dur
ing this very century. Queen Maria Chr's
tina — not the present widow of Alfonso XII
but the wife of Ferdinand VII. — was notrd for
her greed. On her succession to the throne
she found the Spanish treasury so depleted
that she schemed to sell both' the Philippines
and Cuba to France. She forced Senor Catn
pazano to undertake a mission that, was
extremely distasteful to his Spanish pride.
When he opened Christina's proposition to
Louis Philippe, the proud dMI struck the
table a heavy blow and inuttfeted 8) curse.
The queon proposed to..Jiar.d over to ths
French king the island of Cuba for SP.OM 000
reals (about $3,000,000) and the Philippines
and Puerto Rico for lo,ofO,oM> Teais (about $1 -
000,000), or some ?4,C©0,000 In alf. Louis Phil
ippe was willing enough.^to; pay the price
for Cuba, but objected to the sum asked for
the Philippines. "Seven millions of reals is
my offer," he remarked, "or elso the contract
must be thrown into the fire." Talleyrand, who
was present, was about to remonstrate; but
as he stretched forth his hand to take the
queen's paper, Campazano leaped to his feet,
seized the contract, crumpled itr in his hands,
and exclaimed: ''Your Majesty. ls right. The
contract is worthless, only fit to be thrown
into the fire." And with -these words he
flung the paper down upon the fire and beat
the flaming document with the tonga into
blackened fragments.
He worries over how the state-
Will go tho next election v '
And over all the evils great
That clamor for correction.
He worries o'er earth's wicked wiles
And whither we are drifting;
He worries o'er the silly styles
That fashion still keeps Shifting.
He worries o'er the power ot pe'f,
Neglecting other labors;
Both nipht and day he grieves himself.
And likewise grieves his neighbors.
Vet hope sti'.l cheers this mortal plan.
And through the dismal flurry
Improvement shines, save In the man
Who's foreordained to worry.
And when peace comes at last the throng
Will thank, amid iU thriving,
The silent ones who trudge along
Content with merely striving.

Clerk of Court RoeerK Yeatcrday Ia-

Will Make Fifteen Demure Mai
denn Bluahlnff Bridea— Said to He
the BljcKent Day That Wan Ever
Known Here.
Obviously there was somewhere a
convention of marriageable and marl
tally inclined ones Monday. While the
nation was engaged in the work of
paying tribute to the dead a crowd
got together and tossed a few bou
quets at the living, and concluded that
If there was nothing so rare as a day
in June then the very quintessence of
the undertone in days must be the first
day of the month of roses. Today the
marriage bells will be ringing for the
obsequies of the Joys of fifteen bach
elor men and maids.
The population of this town will be
reduced by fifteen today, for by this
evening thirty hearts will beat as one.
They were licensed to wed yesterday.
The day was a record breaker in the
office of the clerk of courts. Some
years ago there was a single day upon
which twelve licenses were issued.
Since then there was never such an
onslaught made on the maid who in
clined to matrimony. Last evening
when Clerk Sundberg counted up he
had fifteen licenses to enter the realms
of bliss entered on the books as paid
for and duly issued.
The licenses included all sorts and
conditions of men and women, and the
record showed that three came from
other states to capture the Minnesota
maid. The rest of the promised joy
will be the portion of Rainsey county
The present prosperity, evidenced by
the number of licenses granted, may be
as it appears on the surface. A stu
dent of matrimony who has issued
many of the licenses in the past half
half dozen years accounts for the great
increase in the demand for permits to
marry on the basis that the popular
heart has been moved by the call to
arms, and that this is the starting of
a great matrmonial movement on the
part of the patriotically inclined. An
other marriage sharp inclines to the
idea that this movement is the result
of subtle minded suitors who caught
the marriageable young woman on the
rebound, while their hearts were bleed
ing at the going forth of the mar
riageable young man to fight for his
The rare day in June theory is the
most poetical and popular, and the
quantity of roses that will be used up
today will be something awful for the
bridegroom to contemplate. v and a
source of delight to the florist who has
the happy faculty of being able to
prove tha.t roses are more expensive
in June than at any other time during
the year.
On the Safe Side.
From the Cleveland Leader.
"Doc." said a man who had aproached one
of the surgeons at the recruiting station, "I
wish you'd examine me and see if I'm e.igi-
We for enlistment."
"You must file your application In the regu
lar way with the officer in charge," replisd
the surgeon.
"I haven't time to do that now." the stran
ger replied. "Why can't you take a look at
me ant 1 , see what my chances are, anyway?
It's very important that I should know."
"Well, take off your coat and vest and let
me listen to your heart the first thing."
The examination was very short.
"Ah," said the surgeon after he had lis
tened for a moment, "there isn't any use fro
ijVC on with your case. You'll never do.
Why, you might almost as well have no heart
at all."
"Hurrah for war!" yelled the man who had
been rejected, as he pulled on his ccat and
hurried into the street. "War! War! War!
Down with the cowards who don't want
blood! Hurrah for the crush of matter and
the wreck of worlds."

Spaniards Appear to Do It Without
I kliik Much Tobacco.
From the New York Sun.
It - a a familiar saying to every traveler
south of tha Pyrenees that "every one smoks
In Spain, men and women, old and young,
rich and poor." That this la the case ail
travelers agree, and it might reasonably be
supposed, tco, that as a result of what is a
national habit, there would be an enormous
consumption of tobacco In Spain, more es
pecially in view of the fact that prior to the
breaking out of the revolution the average
tobacco crop of Cuba was OjO.OOO bal^s of
more than 100 pounds each, and that Puerto
Kico and the Philippine Islands have also
exported large quantities of tobacco, there
being sent from Manila in an ordinary year,
when peaceablo conditions prevail, 10J.OOOCOO
JW exclusive of 400,000,000 cigarettes and
AoOO tons of cut tobacco. Smoking being a
general habit in Spain, the Spanish colonies
(or former colonies) being notable for their
tobacco exports, and the policy of the Span
ish government having been distinctly favor
able to smoking, it might naturally seem as
1 1 pa i? J n thls P arti<; ular, at least, should
take high rank among the countries of
Europe. Such, however, does not appear to
bo the case, for, leaving out Scandinavia,
there Is only one country in Europe that
uses less tobacno in a year than Spain does,
and that country Is Italy.
When the consumption per inhabitant is
taken as a basis for comparison, the posi
tion of Srain is seen to be an insignificant
one, for there Is actually less tobacco used
per inhabitant in Spain than in Scotland
where cigar smoking is rare and cigarette
smoking almost unknown. The figures per
Inhabitant in ounces, taking the average of
several years, are as follows in the countries
named: Holland, 85; Switzerland, 82- Tur
key, 70; Belgium, Co; Germany, 50; Austria-
Hungary, 42; Scandinavia, 40; France 35-
England, 33; Spain, 30. In all public places
, social resorts, restaurants, cafes, railroad
stations, clubs, hotel corridors and theater
lobbies in Spain, the atmosphere is sur
charged with tobacco smoke — co much so as
to constitute a very objectionable feature
In the view of American tourists. But not.
withstanding this large supply of smoke, it
would seem as If the consumption of tobacco
did not keep pace with it. The explanation
of the matter is probably found In this, that
Spaniards as a rule smoke cigarettes in
which tobacco is an important but not ex
clusive ingredient, and that pipe-smoking is
very little known in that country. The Hol
landers, on the other hand, who stand at
the head of the list in the consumption of to.
bacco, do not as a rule smoke cigars and
seldom cigarettes. They smoke pipes, ar.d
the consumption of tobacco in pipes wouia
seem to be relatively larger than in c!gar».
Moreover, Spain is a dry country. Holland
Is a moist country. The consumption Tif
tobacco is usually found to be larger in damp
than in dry countries, and perhaps — thougn
there is no scientific authority for this—
tobacco used In dry countries emits mora
smoke than tobacco used In damp countries,
But this fact remains— that tho Spaniards con
sume little tobacco for a nation of smokers.
An Excellent Jndge.
From the Cleveland Leader.
There is a judge down in Maryland who
ought to have a lofty monument some day,
and If the people who ride bloyc'.ea fail to re
member him handsomely they will simply
prove that they are ungrateful and richly de
serve all the troubles that the sprinkling cart
men scatter before them.
This jurist has decided that a persrn shou'd
not be fined for riding on a sidewalk vr^iers
the roaiway is impassable, no matter whether
town ordinances forbid it or not. More than
that, hs holds that riders of bicycles have
the right of passage on highways, and that
they are even justified in trespassing upon
private property when the condition of the
roads makes wheeling dangerous.
