BUT THE MAN EATING SHARK TOOK $45,000 OF THE BAIT. r The Ex-Diver's Story of an Adventure la the "Great Days' Silence Smeared Itself All Over the Veranda at the Complex! an of the Tarn. "I suppose," quoth James T. Ganlin of Winchester, Mass., ejjo -eras sitting on the hotel veranda, "that I had the honor of killing the most valuable, fish that ever swain tbe seas. I did it single handed toa I aver that this fish was worth more at the time of its death than the finest sperm whale that was ever harpooned, although we should really leave whales out of the quet-tion when speaking of fish. It was 30 years ago, and I was young and foolish enough to be a deep sea diver. Our di viug schooner and crew had been sent to Cuba to try to recover some stuff from a Spanish boat that had foundered off the coast of Cuba, just where I don't now recollect. It was quite a long trip for us, and as tbe employment of a diving outfit was an expensive thing in those davs the boys knew that there must be something pretty valuable in the hold of Hiewieck. I was quite clpse to our skipper, and he told me that therowere several boxes of gold coin in the wreck. On our arrival at the port near where the wreck lay in 30 feet cf water the agent of the owners of the sunken schooner told us some thing more surprising. It was that the gold had not been stowed in boxes in the cabin, as was usual, but for some reason had been bagged and placed in the hold, being billed as copper washers. This was probably a scheme to avoid any chance of the spirit of cupidity aris ing in the crew, for the treasure was very great. "As the confidential man, I was se lected to go down first and find the mon ey bags, attach lines to them and have them taken out before the other divers should proceed with the work of taking out the other freight that the water had not harmed. I was soon in the hold and was surprised to find that the bags were only a little distance from thn hole in the sitlo that had caused the schooner to founder. I had been told that there would be 12 bugs, but I could lay my hands on but 1 1 of them. Finally I spied a torn bag lying near the hole in the hull, and on picking it rtp discover ed that it contained a few gold coins. I decided that the heavy triple sucking had been torn open in some way or oth er when the schooner sank. I fastened lines about the 1 1 bags that were intact, and had them hoisted, afterward going up for air, for our apparatus was not very good. "In a few minutes I returned to the hold to search for the scattered coins. Very few of them were in sight. It oc curred to me that they might have been washed outside the boat, judging from the position of the wreck aud the fact that the hold was far down toward the ship's bottom. I was about to crawl out of the 1iolo when I remembered that it might hazard tbe air pipe, so I was pulled up aud let down again over the vessel's side. I was disappointed not to find any indication of the gold near the holo in the schooner, but set to work digging resolutely in the sand. I had gono but a foot down when I struck the gold pieces all in a lump. I picked out a great handful and turned the light on them, for I was a lover of gold then, even though it did not belong to me. "Just then I saw something that made the rubber helmet rise from my head. It was a man eating shark. I hadn't thought of one in so long that I had neglected to bring my knife. It was rushing at me. The stupid creature never stopped to consider that with a rubber and lead dressing a diver makes a poor lunch. I was kneeling beside the gold. At the shark's onslaught I natural ly hung to the handful of gold as though to use it as a weapon. He turned on his side, opening his horrible mouth. A feeling of grim humor had come over me. The cruel goldbugs had sent me down here to be dovoured, after saving thousands cf dollars for them. I would bo a speudthrif t at the last. Sa with all my force I flung the heavy handful of coin into tho yawning mouth. "The shark must have thought it was a part of mo, for ho snapped his jaws over tho golden morsel. I am satisfied that ho broko some teeth. He swam back a little, and then rushed at me again. I had no weapon but the gold, so again I flnug into the hideous maw enough to buy me a home in 2ev Eng land. I saw him snap and swallow it. Again and again was tho attack repeat ed, and as often did I hurl gold into the shark's throat. Pretty soon he became dizzy, as it were, for tho gold had un balance:! him, settling in the forward part of his body. Then he writhed in agony, and I had to keep dodging his flurry. Then, with one terrible shudder, he sank to the bottom, weighted down by tho gold. I tied a line about him and then gave the signal to be pulled up. Then I helped hoist the shark. We cut him opeu. Gentlemen, you must take the word of an ex -diver that there was $4.,000 iu him. Kohl had killed him." Silence smeared itseif all over the erauda. The pale moon slid behind a cloud. The amphitheater organ slowly wove a weird chunk of melody. The "chimes began to ring. "Those were grit davs," said Mr. Gaulin sadly. Buffalo Express. The Lowell Family.

In 1839 Hiss Mary Todd of Kentucky amved in Springfield to visit a married sifter, Mrs. Edwards. At the instance of hie friend Speed, who was also a Kentuckian, Lincoln became a visitor at the Edwards', and before long it was apparent to the observant among those in Springfield that the lively young lady held him captive. Engagements at that time and in that neighborhood were not announced as soon as they were made, and it is not at all impossi ble that Miss Todd and Mr. Lincoln were betro-.hed many months before any other than Mrs. Edwards and Mr. Speed knew of it, writes John Gilmer Speed in Tho Ladies' Home Journal. At this time, as was the case till Lincoln was elected to the presidency, bis one special rival in Illinois wfls Stephen A. Douglas. Mr. Douglas had more of the social graces than Mr. Lin coln, and it appeared to him that noth ing would be more interesting than to cut out his political rival iu the affec tions of the entertaining and lively Miss Todd, and so he paid her court A spirited young lady from Kentucky at that time in Illinois would have been almost less than human if she had refused tv accept the attentions cf the two leading men of the locality. There fore Miss Todd, being quite human, en couraged Douglas, and again there was what nowadays would have been called a flirtation. This course of action did not spur Lincoln on in his devotion, but made him less ardent, and he concluded, after much self worriiueut, to break off the engagement, which he did, but at the same interview there were a recon ciliation and a renewal of the engage ment. THE REGENT DIAMOND. The One Precious stone That Cornea Near- cat to Being Flawless. The Regent diamond, while surpassed in size bv the Great Mogul and several other well known stones, is really the finest of all, tieing nearly faultless in form and puuty and the most brilliant diamond in the world today. Its French history dates back to 1717. Iu that year it was purchased from its English owner, for the French regalia, by the Duke of Orleans, then regent of France, whenco its preterit name. It had previously been known by a name almost as famous. In 1717 French finances were in a desperate strait. Tho people were starv ing, the treasury was nearly exhausted, credit even was lost, yet under tiie per suasions of the Scotch financier Law and tho Fieuch Duke of St. Simon the re gent of France, hesitating where every monarch of Europe had refused, finally agreed to the price cf sj!(;75,O00. Greatly to the relief of the dukt, his act appealed to the pride of the French people, and instead of condemnation for his extravagance ho received their ap plause. In the light of subsequent events their approval has a touch of the pro phetic. The first prominent appearance of the diamond in the French regalia was in the circlet of the crown niado for the coronal ion cf the boy Louis XV, in 1722. After half a century it was again the center of a. new, crown, that which in 1775 weighed heavy on the head of the young Louis XVI till he cried tout in discomfort, "It hurts me!" Then come 1789 aud the fire and blood and fury of the French revolution. Charles Stuart Pratt iu Lippincott's. The Army of Tramp. There can be no doubt that the tramp is in a certain sense the maker and chooser cf his own career. The writer's experience with these vagrants has con vinced him that, though they are almost always the victims of liquor and lazi ness, fully four-fifths of America's vol untary beggars have begun their wide and restless ways while still in their teens, and have been furthered in their wrong tendencies by unwise treatment applied to them when young. Year after year, even month after month, trampdom is increased by squads of youths who will soon take and hold the places of their elders, who will nat urally drop away with the years. These boyish roadsters are more often illegiti mate than lawful children and conse quently proper subjects for stute care and guardianship. And the fact that every tramp in the United States has spent some part of his youth in a re form school, or, worst of all, in jails, demonstrates that there is a failure somewhere in our system of correction and -reformat ion and makes it necessary and only fair that the sociologist as well as the reformer should know the tramp from boyhood to manhood. Su perficial and unsympathetic studies of his character, with shallow theories about remedial measures, have so far failed signally in checking his malign influence upon society.
