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. Landsmen, you see,
never : sleep out of doors." New Tors:

Indla Rubber Tree Prolt.
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. The Indian girls are fond of wear
ing bracelets and necklets' made of
them. "". s.' .
