NORTH PARK UNION.
PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. WALDEN. - - - COLORADO. Any woman Is worth her weight In gold—so she tl Inks. An egotist is n man who thinks himself better than his neighbors. Many a man would have a better wife If he wasn't such a poor hus band. A man can accomplish things at 20 that he would be ashamed to attempt at 40. If people could only get rid of their Imaginary troubles they would be fairly happy. Just at the moment when the right eous are in the greatest despair aid Is close at hand. Man needs truth and consolation; but the truth may not be consoling, nor the consoling true. You can learn more about a man In ten minutes after It Is too lato than you could In ten years before. The happening of the unexpected never worries people who are not pre pared for anything In particular. Senator Depew Is an active member in twenty-five clubs, the United States senate, and eighty-two other corpora tions. A New York man claims to have been driven Into Insanity by his own humor. The prevailing Inclination is to shift the responsibility for such mis fortunes. The woman who thinks she is marrying a novelist’s hero and the man who thinkß he Is marrying a wingless angel Invariably discover that marriage Is a failure. The most deplorable thing in connec tion with our present day congres sional verbosity is the fact that It comes largely from young men who ought to know better. No less than 1.000 producers of verse entered a recent poetic competi tion. This is the utilitarian age more from the lack of a Tennyson than from a deficiency in the number of aspir ants. Kuang-Hsu. the unhappy young Chi nese emperor, still lives. In view of the expense attendant upon royal fun erals it is quite possible that the em press dowager decided not to kill him until after the spring tuxes had been collected. The bridge of boats which now forms the only means of crossing the Bos phorus is entirely Insufficient to meet the demands and It is suggested to build a tubular tunnel from shore to shore, so that traffic may go on with out Interruption. Because of the lack of a suitable foundation, this tube must be suspended or floated below the sur face of the water. The scheme sounds somewhat Impracticable, but It is be ing seriously considered. It may be noted that while the pro fessors nre disputing as to the com mercial utility of liquid air as a pow er. the main engine work of the world is still done by steam. Electricity came long before liquid air. It has been put to commercial uses for twenty years, and immense advances have been made in its production and appli cation. Yet the extent to which It has actually superseded steam as an applied power Is really trivial—and there is a steam engine behind every current of electricity that is put to commercial uses. Within n few special lines electricity is practicable as an agency for distributing the power originally generated In a steam engine; but the day when steam shall cease to be the driving power of the world seems to be ns far off as ever. An intelligent master-printer Is quot ed as saying to the men of his own trade, "Whether we wish for it or not. the eight-hour day is bound to come; and instead of wasting our strength in vain resistance, we shall find it wiser to consider how we can adjust our busi ness to the Inevitable change." With out accepting or rejecting this prophe sy, we may say with truth that the present agitation seems to follow in the track of the movement of sixty years ago. which reduced the working day from twelve or more hours to ten. It Is urged by the same reasons; it is met by the same objections; it wins by the same zigzag advances. In eight states there has already been friendly legislation; In Boston and Worcester it has been approved by populnr suf frage as a standard for all city em ployes. It is for the Interest of both capital and labor that so serious a change should be made—if It is to be made at all—with the least possible disturbance to business. The Greek word corresponding to "awful" was appropriately applied to many things describing pain or beauty or skill. English usage, however, would practically eliminate the word from youthful lips. Tennyson once read n new poem to his guests, the DufTerlns. The daughter, a girl of fifteen, cried out enthusiastically, "How awfully pretty!” upon which Tennyson put his band on her shoulder and said, "My dear child, do not use that dreadful word." In a voice of deep compunc tion she exclaimed. "Oh. I am awfully sorry!" to the amusement of all. Lord Salisbury’s remarks to Parlia ment that "We must join together and exercise all our powers in extricating ourselves from a situation full of hu miliation and not free from danger.” The time for making light of the task in hand has evidently passed. New York’s canal commission, back ed by Gov. Roosevelt, recommend the deepening of the Erie canal to ten feet, an improvement that will cost the state $62,000,000. The question will be submitted to voters at the next elec tion. COLORADO NOTES. A terrible murder has been commit ted at the Snowden ranch, about twen ty-five miles southwest of Manxanola. .lames Ford, foreman of u sheep outfit, was the victim, and was probably kill ed last Friday. Milton Trujillo, a herder employed at the rnneh and now in Jail, has confessed that he killed Ford. The Union Gold Extraction Com pany. which will build a chlorluation plant at Cyanide, has placed a contract with the Canon City Brick and Tile Company for a million pressed brick. By the terms of the contract the ex traction company secured the right to Increase the order by any amount up to 350.000. Information from Breekonridge goes to show that while the eastern heirs of 'Professor Carter have cordially acqui esced in the pro|Misitiou that the collec tion be sold to the Denver association for SIO,OOO, they are not ready to con cur iu the desire of the naturalist that the SIO,OOO Ih» devoted 111 turn to fur thering the project for a great museum. Three men were caught In a slide at the Gobi King mine at Gladstone at 5 o’clock Saturday afternoon. Antoni Tarn, by a desjjerate effort, managed to get out. George Foster and Avl were carried to the bottom and no hopes are entertained of the recovery of either party alive. George Foster Ims lieen married only thirty days, and tin* parents of both Foster.mid bis wife live in Durango. Deliver A Rio Grande passenger train No. 13, which left Deliver for Aspen iit !*:l3 o'clock Thursday night, was wrecked a half mile east of Rock Greek near Bcideu. alsnit !> o'clock yesterday morning. A broken rail caused tin* de railment of three cars, one of which toppled into the Eagle river. Six men, every one of them railroad employes, were injured in tin* wreck, hut the re port of tin* physician iu charge of the victims says that none of them will die. Judge Stevens of the Seventh Judi cial district, who Is sitting for Judge Rucker, has decided that the case of the People against \V. .1. Cox. superin tendent of tlie Motile Gibson mine, for tlie pollution of the waters of tin* Roar ing Fork river, should have been brought in I'itkiu county, as the crime, if committed, lias been committed in that eonuty. The Garfield county far mers will now commence a civil action for damages on account of the pollu tion of tin* water. On the evening of Washington's birthday the handsome Gobi Coin club house at Victor, built to replace tin one consumed in the tire of August 21st. was dedicated to llic use of the employes of the Woods Invi'stmeiit Gompnny by a reception and dance. The Gold Coin band furnished the mu sic for the occasion. The building »>«•- cupies a ground space of 30x123 feet. Is two stories in height, of a Grecian style of architecture, and is without question one of the finest institutions j of its kind in the West. F. D. Wight of Trinidad will make the largest individual shipment of woo! to Boston ever sent from tlit* south western country. It aggregates about 030.4M10 pounds, and represents the ca-1 tire clip from Ids thousands of head of : sheep for tin* past three years. The greater portion of the wool is scoured. 1 It will be shipped over the Colorado A Southern to Now Orleans, thence via J the Morgan steamship line to its des-j tiuntlon. The wool will lie shipped in eighteen ears from Trinidad and twelve ears from Folsom. New Mexico, mak- | ing altogether thirty ears. The work of loading has commenced. It is estl- ' mated that the shipment will realize be tween SI23.<HKJ and $130,000. Tlic Roaring Fork and Blue River Stock Growers’ Association, which met I at Glen wood on the 17th. made formal protest against any change iu the pres ent land leasing system mid denounced the action of tin* recent convention of tilt* Niitiouul IJvc stock Association ill tin* matter. The resolutions are strong against any disposition of public lauds in any way other than already provid ed. and protest against the state leas ing Its lands ftir grazing pur|Nist*s. The principal reasons advanced art* that the system of leasing gives the larger syn dicates control of the ranges, to tin* detriment of the smaller stockmen, who are farmers as well, and who have tlielr homes at or near their ranges. Tin* changing of the terminal of the Florence & Cripple Creek railroad from Florence to Canon City, which Is the practical result of the new line Just opened into Cnuun City, will bring with It tin* change of nil tin* offices of (lie road from Florence to Canon City, It was unuouufcd yesterday at tin* lo cal offices that it was tin* Intention as soon as practicable to establish tin* of fices of tin* superintendent, master me chanic. storekeeper and disputclfhr at tin* latter point, which means a virtual abandonment of Florence, making it practically ii way station. The Canon City terminals, already under construe tlou, will la* rushed to completion as soon as possible. The company has other construction under consideration, chiefly repair shops. Tlu* shops will include ear sheds, round houses, paint shops and machine houses. Plans have already been drawn for these buildings, hut have not yet heeu ac cepted. It is announced that more than half of the money to Ih* raised for tin* State IJulverslty from private sources has been raised. The amount of $73,000 Is asked for to tide the Institution over until (lie coming legislature can pro vide for tin* payment of tin* money from tin* revenues of the state. Thwo amounts will be advanced or loaned, not given, but as there is thought to l»e some risk it Is with difficulty that the committee is securing the funds. Gen eral Irving Hah*, whose father was president of the university, and Presi dent James 11. Baker of tin* University, are making great progress in tin* work. It was not long ago that General Hale was assured by Ehcn Smith that lie would advance SIO,OOO, ami since that time the work of the committee lias been easier. Several small stuns were secured and tin* total raised to more than half the $73,000 iu*etled. In addi tion to that there are three parties who have promised to advance “tin* last $2,000" ami like sums oil similar terms. M. M. Fox. formerly employed on the Carmichael ranch, near Brighton, was convicted iu the County Court in Den ver on February Utlt of cruelty to ani mals. The case was brought at tlie In stance of the Mutuum* Society. The complaint charged that on August 20. IS9O. while hauling sand from tlie river to the opera house in Brighton, one of Fox’s horses hulked, and that there upon Fox I teat him with a blncksuake whip, a shovel atnl a fork handle. Aft er a short deliberation tin* jury re turned a verdict of guilty. Judge Steele, calling Fox to tin* bar, said In pronouncing sentence: "This offense was most outrageous. You trented this horse in a most cruel, inhuman and brutal manner. There is some ex cuse if ii full-grown man like you lights a man of his own size. But when you take a horse that is tied by the mouth and heat him as you did, lan guage Is inadequate to express the con tempt of fids court for your action. You will Im* confined for a period of four mouths in the county jail." LETTERS WERE OPENED. Comol Mac rum Jla* Evidence That tha British Ciaarnuptml With HU Mall. Denver, Feb. 2th—-The Rocky Moun tain News this morning prints the fol lowing special dispatch from Wash ington: Your correspondent to-day had a long Interview with Charles E. Macrum. re lieved from the consulate at Pretoria through tin* grace of Secretary liny and the British government. The writ er lias seen the proof of Macrum’s main charge, namely, that United States official mail was opened by the British censor. Mr. Macrum had sev eral envelopes, each bearing the Brit ish sticker applied to tlu* envelope af ter it had 1 m*»*ii ojH*m*d by the censor. He lias one envelope which contained mail matter from Consul General Stowe at Ci»|h* Town. It Is the .regu lation blue of the consular service. It bears ii|m»ii Its fact* tin* legend. "U. S.

The British sticker, resettling the letter after it hail been opened, hears tin* potential initials “V.

It will astound Americans to know that tlie British authorities are famil iar with tin* American <*ousulnr code. On November Mtli Mr. Maeruiu sent a cablegram iu code to the State Depart ment urgently requesting he Is* per mitted to come home. Usually cable grams. because of the difference ill time between South Africa and this country, consume two days in trans mission- that is to say. the cable sent by Mr. Macrum on October Stli would, normally, have lieen received by the State Department on October loth. But. on October fit li. before tlie cable gram was received by tlu* State De partment certainly, and before it was sent from South Africa probably, the British papers in Natal, hundreds of miles away, announced in impressive typo that Mr. Macrum. the American consul at Pretoria, desired to In* per mitted to go home. Mr. Maermii Is here eager to answer any and all questions, lb* will toll senators and representatives personally or in committee nil about how Ameri ca and American interests have Ihm*i» regarded by the British government iu South Africa, lie Is particularly anx ious to avoid any charge of partisan ship. for his sympathies are Republi can. his political interests are Republi can and Ills official friends are Republi can. "Believing as I did that I was doing my country a service by coming home for tin* purpose of making an explana tion. I did not fortify myself with all tlu* official records I might have st*- ettred.

"No, the State Department lias asked nothing." replied Mr. Macrutn. "When I found that I had been removed as a consular officer, I was iu much doubt as to how it would he possible for me to get ail official report before tlie State Department.

Mtddte-of-the-KcxMl Farllon Withdraws From Mewling of the National Con vention. Lincoln. Neh.. Fell. 1!». A split and a walkout followed a turbulent meet ing of tlie I'opulist National cominiv tee to-night, the anti-fusion leaders, af ter having a umuh'cr of their followers turned down by tlie credentials commit tee, organizing a holt and form lug a new committee. The members favorable to fusion, after adopting tlie report of tin* credentials meeting, ad journed until to-morrow, when iu all likelihood they will emiKiwer the chairman or a committee of three to cull tlu* national convention for tlu* same city and at tlu* same time tlu* Democratic convention Is held. Tiu* Inharmonious meeting of the full committee began at 3 o’clock tills af ternoon and indications that breakers were ahead was emphasized ten min utes after Chairman Butler called the committee to order ami announced that it would at once go into executive ses sion. The differences of tlu* members, of whom there were about eighty pres ent. hut holding proxies for nearly tin* full committee, hinged primarily oil tlie old question of fusion. Tlu; ele ment led by Senator Allen, with appa rently the strongest following, insisted on fusion, and to that end that a com mittee he appointed with |s>wer to call tlu* convention for the same day and place at tin* Democrats. Senator Al ien said: "I am not in favor of admitting to tlu* committee meeting this afternoon, or recognizing as members of the com mit tin* any man who participated in the Cincinnati convention that uouiiuatisl Barker ami Donnelly for president and vice president. I am not in favor of recognizing proxies from such men. neither am I in favor of recognizing any such men who send a proxy. I do not believe tlu* committee should ad mit any member who is supporting a ticket other than tlu* one to Ih* nominat ed in tlu* convention lids committee shall call. The committee should throw over the transom every monitor who lias no right to participate in its dclilt orations and I believe It will do ii.” The address charges a minority of the committee with "an unprecedented and outrageous effort to disfranchise tlu* I'opulist voters of the nation by ar bitrarily and without cause or reason dropping from tlu* rolls of this com mittee nearly one-third of its mon itors," compelling "action on the part of tlie minority which has resulted in a division of the committee.” These facts will !m* given in a formal address to the public to Im* issued by the committee to-morrow.

Rob Gleverdale's Adventure. By Seward W. Hopkins. Copyrighted. 1898. by Robert Bonner’k Sons. WWWWWW W WWW WWW 4 CHAPTER IX.— (Continued.) The unlouding began at once, and Captain Elvln took from the hand of Torrevo the tally Rob had made in Brazil. He looked at It with a keen scrutiny, then liis sharp eyes searched Torrevo's face. But he said nothing then. Rob was compelled by Torrevo to do his part in the unloading the same as before, but this time Torrevo did not beat him. Somewhere, deep down in that outlaw's heart, tnere was a tender spot, and Rob had found it. When the cargo was all safely stowed away in the cave, the very dampness of which mude Rob shudder at the memory of his former experience. Cap tain Elvin called Torrevo one side. "Who wrote this? he asked, thrust ing the paper under Torrevo's nose. "Why?” asked Torrevo. to gain time. He did not know what was coming. "Because I want to know.” answered Elvin. "This is not your writing. There is not one of your gang that can write like this. Who did it?” "My nephew," said Torrevo. holding himself -up proudly, as if to let Elvin see that there were educated people in his family, and he was proud of the faci. "When we loaded at Rio I was ill. I could not take the tally, and I set my nephew at it. He did it very well, as you see.” "Very well, indeed. And what Is the name of this nephew of yours?" "Ricardo Torrevo —the same as my own." " ’M. ’M. He does not look like you. Where did he get his light com plexion?" "From his mother. Senor Captain. She was an American lady.” " 'M. ’M. And how does he stand? Is he with us? Can he he trusted?” “With our lives. That boy is true as steel. Oh. you need not fear him. THEY TRAVEL.ED SEVERAL MILES. captain. I would not take him on the ‘Black Cat’ if I did not trust him.” "How much does he know —about our plans. I mean?” "All that I know. 1 urn not in the secret correspondence, captain.” "No —you drink too much. But. if this nephew can be trusted, 1 can make good use of him.” Torrovo stared. "Good use. captain?” "Yes; bring him here.” Rob still wore the Spanish outfit, as Torrevo had ordered hiih to do. In fact, his own clothes had been thrown away at sea. That much danger of recognition had been done away with. "Ricardo,” said Torrevo. when Rob had answered his call, "Capt. Elvln speaks well of your work.” "Where did you learn to write?” asked Elvln. “At school in New York,” replied Rob, unthinkingly. " 'Tis so,” said Torreyo. quickly. "His mother spent most of her time there, and Ricardo went to the Ameri can schools.” Elvln nodded. "You come with me. Ricardo,” he said. "I need a penman like you.” Rob’s heart beat faster, and Torrevo stood aghast. If Elvln took Rob away from him. what might not happen? By a word the young American might let ! out the secret, and then it would be all up with him and Torrevo. "Get whatever you have on board,” said Elvln. "and come along." Torrevo and Rob went back to the schooner. "I don’t know what this means,” said Torrevo. anxiously. "But I warn you. You are my nephew. If you let out the secret of your escape from drown ing your life won’t be worth a peso; and I will lose mine as well. Now, re member what I say. You are Ricardo Torrevo. Remember your name, and do not allow Elvln to suspect. Keep out of the young one's sight. If Lem uel sees you he may know you. If he does, you are a dead man. Do you hear?” "Yes,” said Rob. “I will be care ful.” "And if anything does occur—any thing that you cannot help—and you think you are in danger, come here at once. I shall remain here with the schooner for some time, till I know that all is safe. Of course, 1 won’t tell Elvln that. But you will find me here, if you need to escape In a hurry.” Rob thanked the peculiar captain of the "Black Cat.” and with the few things he had on board, most of which Torrevo had given him, he rejoined El vln. CHAPTER X. The Englishman saw that the rock was securely placed at the opening of the cave, and then ordered Rob to fol low him. He rode off towards the in- | • WW WW WWW w W terior. and paid no further attention to the young fellow trudging behind him. They traveled in this way for sev eral miles, and at last came to an old estate on the plain. There was a stone house, one-storied, with many windows and wide porticos. Elvin turned into the avenue that led from the rough and little traveled road, and dismounted at the door of this house. There was lit tle about the place that indicated it to be occupied. The land was not culti vated. There were men about the sta bles. and one came forward and took the Englishman’s horse. The captain then strode in at an open door. Rob found the place comfortably fur nished. but there was nothing about it, even with its interior comfort, that betokened the presence of a family, in fact, this out-of-the-way place was simply the headquarters of Richard El vin and the gang of conspirators of which he was the leader. They passed inlo a large room, and the Englishman called for supper. This was soon spread, anil Rob ate heartily, for he was hungry after his long and hurried tramp. He was also excessive ly weary, and the captain noticed this. •’What's the matter?” he asked. “Arc you played out?” ‘‘Yes. captain.” said Rob. “I walked fast after your horse.” "Well, go rest yourself. Tomorrow you will have plenty of work." The plan of the house was commo dious. even though it was but one story high. Rob was shown to a comforta ble room, in which was a bed and other necessaries, and even luxuries, of a bedroom. This room opened off from a larger one. which seemed to be a sort of library or oilice. There were other rooms like Rob’s, all arranged on two sides of a great hall. Three only opened from the ofliee. Rob was not slow in obeying the I captain, and after buttling his uching j limbs with cool water he went to bed. | He was weary enough to sleep, not withstanding the new dangers that confronted him. And he did fall asleep and remained In a doze for sev eral hours. He awoke some time in the night, hearing voices outside in the ofllce. The light of the moon came in through the one window of his room, and Rob was enabled to see. He lay there without trying to listen, but suddenly became aware that a voice he knew was speaking. It was Lemuel Starne. "Yes," Starne was saying, "it was a lucky thing for me I got rid of that American cub when I did. Why, if he had ever reached old Horton, it would have been all up with me. And just as I am getting on so well, too. I have gained the old man's confidence, and am well on to that of the girl's. It would be a fine thing, after I work up my case. Ingratiate myself with Horton anil marry Elsie, to have the old fool leave his wealth to that young cub and leave mo out in the cold. No, no. If I win any, I must win all. Some day old Horton will die. and then we shall control the wealth of South America. It was a most fortunate thing that I henrd of his coming. It enabled me to meet him at Rio and chuck him overboard.” "What did Horton say about it?” asked Elvin. "Oh. he was stricken with grief. Hut that will wear oft. Elsie, the little fool, is crying yet. And she never saw the cub. Well, I’ll take that out of her.” "Are you sure no one suspected you?” Starne laughed harshly. "Suspect me? Why. I was the most grief-stricken of the let. When I re ported the thing to the captain of the steamer I could scarcely control myself for weeping. And I’ve been assuaging Elsie's grief and comforting the old man ever since.” "When you are his son-in-law you can do it better.” "Oh! worlds better.” Both laughed. Rob lay quietly listening to this dia bolical conversation. It made the mys tery clear to him at last. Starne was trying to win the hand of his cousin Elsie, to get David Horton's fortune. And ho wanted It all. That was the reason he threw Rob overboard—to get him out of the way and leave the path clear for his own plots and plans. Rob clenched his fists and shook with rage at this shameless story. Then fear overcame the rage, and ho trembled with apprehension. Truly, he was in a bad fix now. In the very house with his enemy. Oh! if Starne would only leave before morning. "What about the letters?” asked Starne, after a few moments of silence, in which Rob could distinguish ih« clinking of glasses. “I suppose you cr.mc to write them,’ answered Elvin. "Yes.” "Well. I have done better than that. It seems that Torrevo had a nephew with him who was educated in Nc* York. He wrote the tally of the Ins cargo, and did it so well that 1 brought him here to write tne letters. '1 h< plans are ripe now, and we must hui - ry.” "True enough. But was ic safe t bring a stranger into it?' "He is only a boy. And at any rat it was safer than for you to wi.t them. You must not be known in th thing at all. There is always the pos sibility of failure, and if the revolution does not.succeed, then you will ha’. Horten’s money to fall back on. Yea must not be known even as my son. I would advise you not to come here again, unless something importan: brings you." "Just as you say. Had 1 better stay tonight?” "No. Get back before daylight, an 1 no questions will be asked. Don t run any risks. The stake you arc playing for is worth all the caution you can use. Horton must be worth twenty millions.” "Forty, if a cent. And it will all be mine some day, and a lovely bride in the bargain." "Well, be careful. I will have the notices sent out in cipher tomorrow, and by the following day the liist step.. will be taken to overthrow this hate ful government." "Hateful! I should say so.” Rob could now hear the preparations for departure, and soon a horse passed his window. Lemuel bade his father goodnight and rode away. "I'll show them how to write letters tomorrow," said Rob to himself, as lie clenched his fists again. "Perhaps Mr. Lemuel Elvin Starne won't come out so big as he thinks he will. Oh! wasn’t it lucky that Torrevo made me write that tally? Now I can save my uncle and Elsie from the worst villain that ever lived.” it looked so easy to Rob. But there were difficulties of which he was en tirely ignorant—difficulties that would blanch his cheek and make his heart almost stop beating when he learned them. But at least his resolution was good, and proved the nobility of his soul. (To he continued.) GREAT MAN’S TENDER HEART. An Incident of lord Uwrenco'* Sen Voyace to Indlu. Lord Lawrence, viceroy of India, \va: a blunt man of action, impatient or contradiction, and thoroughly self-re liant. Yet. like many of the truly great, he had a heart as tender as a woman’s. The night on which he started from London to govern India he gathered all his family in the draw ing room and made each child repeat a favorite hymn to him. His youngest son. 10 years old. nestled in his fath er's arms. Suddenly the strong nuyi burst Into tears. "I shall never." he cried, "see Bertie a child again!" It was not of the hardships before him or of his own death he thought, but of the fact that Bertie would not be a child to him on his return. On board the steamer with the governor-genera! of India was a lady with her Infant child. She neglected the baby, which revenged itself by crying day and night. The passengers complained in language more forcible than polite "Stewart, throw that baby overboard!’ was petulantly shouted from sleepless berths. At last Lord Lawrence, see ing that the child was left motherless by Its own mother, took it on his knee For hours he would hold it, showing ii his watch and anything that would amuse it. The child took to the great strong man and was always quiet when he held it. "Why do you. my lord," asked one of the relieved passengers, surprised to see the governor-general of India playing nurse to a crying baby, “why do you take such notice ol that child?” "Because, to tell you tlw truth," answered Lord Lawrence, wltfc a merry twinkle in his eye, “thut child is the only being In the ship who I car feel quite sure does not want to ge: anything out of me."—Pastimes. A STRANGE ROMANCE. That Connect* New York of T«-Oaj With Egypt of 3.000 Yenrw Ago. A strange romance of history, con necting one of the oldest of lands and civilisations with the youngest of great nations and the most advanced system of government, finds Its setting in New York. Three thousand years age Egypt was one day thrown into a state of excitement by the birth, at the im perial palace, of a princess of the royal line. Not alone was there rejoicing at the advent into the world of a future queen, but the father of the infant, the great Thothmes 111., caused to he be gun the hewing of an immense obelisk out of solid rock to commemorate the event. Years went by and the maiden t blossomed into beautiful womanhood ! while the obelisk was being worked j upon by hundreds of skilled toilers. When it was at last finished and set up before the royal palace at Hellop- I olis she spent days in watching the I strange hieroglyphics being cut upon it. Nearly all that we know of the ' history of the world has occurred since then, and yet today, after a lapse ol thirty centuries, the body of that Egyptian princess, perfectly preserved lies in state in the museum in Cen tral Park, and not 200 feet away stands the hoary obelisk as if keeping guard over her remains. Thousands of mile? ! from their former home, these remind- j ers of the glory of dynasties now but a half-forgotten tradition of the re mote past arc strangely reunited. The obelisk Is generally known as "Cleo patra’s needle." while the mummy of the princess, whose name was Ne fereyt, rests on a sarcophagus in the museum. Nut 111 IIIh l.lnr.
