TONS QP GOLD TREASURE.
Tut 8 tor of Wealth Emptied Fron New World . Into Old. ; It has never been told how. vast was the treasure that was. emptied from the new "world Into the old in the glorious days of the Spanish dominion We can only Juge of how great it was by col lateral evidence. The booties of Cortes and Pizarro are. famous in annals of new world history. In them we have read how the soldiers of the former carried away -only a small part of the treasures looted at Mexico, yet were so loaded ' down with stolen gold that when they fell from the" causeway into the lake in the memorable retreat from Mexico they sank and drowned as weighted with plummets of lead; also we read how Pizarro exacted as a trib ute for the liberation of the Inca Ata hulpa gold that filled to the depth of several feet a room seventeen feet wide by twenty-two feet long and that was valued at 1,300,000 pesos d'or, the equivalent of nearly $15,500 of our money. V" ;;-:5. X T-X-J-- -V: ; : When Drake sailed the south sea in the . Golden Hind upon his piratical voyage of circumnavigation in the years 1577-79 and when he captured the Nuestra Senora della Concepcion 6ur named the Cacafue or. Spitfire of Cape San Francisco, It took three days to transfer the treasure from the cap tured ship to his own. In that single haul ' there was realized a "purchase," as It was called, of over twenty-six tonsiof silvfr, besides eighty pounds of virgin; gold, thirteen chests of pieces of tight- containing over -$1,000,000 in money " and an enormous amount of jewels and "plate. - . v Upon the evidence of John Drake we read that when the Golden Hind laid her course for England, Jay way of the Cape of Good Hope, she was so heavily "ballasted" .with; pure silver that she "rode exceeding deep in the water."

A Sailor Experience After a Nlgbt Nap on Deck In tne Tropica. ; "People laugh at moonstrokes," said a sailor. "They call them shellbacks superstition. I once had a moonstroke, bough, and I tell you it was no laugh ing matter. . : . "In a full moon one night in the trop ics I fell asleep on deck. The moon shone directly on me. I lay In a -white pool of moonlight. So three hours went by. : ' " ' - "Then, when they woke me, I felt like a man in a dream. My mouth hung open, as it does when I sleep, and I couldn't close it, and my head lay-over on the side, and I couldn't straighten it up. " "Nor could I understand what people said to me, nor could I obey orders. Voices I'd hear far away, but they seemed meaningless, V unpleasant. I was very drowsy. All I wanted was sleep. v -' ' ''.'-;: . "They worked on me for two days, " rubbing m down with cold water and dosing me with castor oil, before they brought me round. 'And always after that I have been careful never to sleep, where the moon's rays could get at me. My moonstroke happened eight years 4 ago, but still at every full moon Iam stupid and drowsy, my head droops a little to one side, and my mouth tends to hang open.. . ; 'There's many a sailor has been moonstruck, but , this . accident never befalls landsmen.

The fruit of the India rubber tree Is somewhat similar to that of the Ricl nus communis, the castor oil plant, though somewhat larger. The seeds have a not disagreeable taste and yield .a purplish oil. It Is a fairly good sub stitute for linseed oil, though It dries less 4 rapidly. Mixed with copal blue and turpentine, it makes a good var nish. The oil may be also used In the manufacture of soaps and lithographic inks.: The seeds are somewhat like tiny chestnuts, although darker in col or.
