A DEADLY OCCUPATION.
Bringics; Out Borax Froa Urn Biita la
The deadliest occupation for men or
horses is teaming in the borax fields of
Death valley of the great American des
ert. There the longest teams in tbo
world aro employed. Scientist declare
that the fierce heat in this narrow rest
in the cracked surface of the earth is
not equaled elsewhere in the world.
wnere toe tnermometer oiten registers
140 degrees of heat unrelieved by even
a breath of air, where men sleep at
night in hollow ditcbm filled with wa
ter in order to avoid dying from col
lapse, the necessity for the longest
teams of mules and horses ever harness
ed to draw the great boras laden wag
ons is apparent
The desert team is the longest in the
world, and the percentage of deaths
among the horses is greater than that
of domestic animals need in any other
calling. Forty to 60 horses are often
hitched to one of the luniberiug vehi
cles in which tbo borax is slowly drag
ged across the sun baked alkali plains.
The average life of even the sturdiest
horses used in this work is sis mouths,
for in this length of time they eit her be
come broken winded, consumptive from
inhaling the deadly dust of the desert
or are driven crazy by the frightful heat
A raan there, though protected by the
wagon awnings from the snn'a rays,
cannot go an hour without water with
out danger of death. When a team
breaks down and the water supply be
comes depleted, the men ride cn at top
speed for tho nearest sonrce of supply,
aud often when they return they find
that tho remaining horses, ruade mad
by thirst, have broken from the harness
and dashed off only to find death in the
The borax wagons weigh 8,000
pounds and carry 20,000 pounds at a
load. Behind each wagon is a tank con
taining hundreds of gallons of water.
The horses are harnessed in pairs, the
trained ones in the lead, and the next
in intelligence jest ahead of the tongue,
while the nnruly and the youngsters are
hitched between. Tho nigh leader has
a bridle with the strap from the left
jaw shorter than the other, aud from
tho bridlo runs a braided rope, which
the driver, perched on the wagon seat,
holds in his right hand.
The repe is called tho "jerk line" and
is a little longer than the team, which
stretches out several hundred feet in
front of the wagoD. Daring tho busy
season tho borax wngcus tuuko an al
most continuous train, and the horses
alone, if placed in biuglo f.lo, would
make a team more than 100 mues long.
Besides a little food and water tho
poor animals get no care. They curry
themselves by rolling in the burning
sand. After a few months of tho killing
labor the poor creatnies become unfit
for service. A kindly rifle ball then ends
their ngony, aud their rma.-iated car
casses ore left alongside tho trail to fur
nish scant picking for the hovering vul
tures. California Letter.
riaula That Eat Inserts.
Franri3 Darwin, a eou of tte great
naturalist, baa been investigating tbo
effect on insectivorous plants rf supply
ing them with aud withholding from
them animal food. Ho grew ten of there
carnivorous plants under rimilur condi
tions, Oao plant of the lot he fed with
roast meat, one-fiftieth tf a grain beiitg
placed on the secretins glar.ds of the
plant each hour, while from all the
others ail each food was carefully ex
cluded Tho results of this experiment
were very marked in several particulars,
the greatest being in the uumfctr, weight
aud vitality cf its seeds. The number
of seeds produced by the plant that was
given its regular rations of animal mat
ter was 40 to each 100 produced by
plant3 which were unfed, while the to
tal weight of the seeds was as SsO to
100. In other words, the plants which
were restricted to a diet wholly vege
table wcro invalids compared with the
plants that were furnished with animal
food. The increased heaviness of tho
seeds is another item to be noted, as it
certainly implies increased vitality. At
least it is to with wheat, as any farmer
will tell you, it being the rule that the
heavier the grain the greater its fertili

Let will yon please stats in the river
column whether there was a mulo on
the ark or net?"
No, sir. Nary a raule. When Captain
Noah built tho ark us a high water
packet in tho Ararat trr.do and ho went
into the menagerie business, bo found
that ho was a" mule out" just as he got
ready to leave on his maiden trip. He
went ashore, and after looking around
found a mulo and would have made his
animal show complete if he had been
ablo to get him aboard the boat. Not
being ablo to find a negro who would
twist his tail and make him get aboard
by walking the gang; lank, and after
trying to get his deck crew to coax,
shove, lead or carry the rr.ule aboard, he
got mad, rung the bell, backed out and
lit cut fcr Ararat, leaving the mule a
lonely, friendless beast until he was dis
covered by a negro. The two bavo been

Tfea Wind flays an Important Fart la
the SBrratUac of PXaata,
The nsaal way fcr seeds to be carried
is by the wind. Sometimes tbry arc so
small and light s to be easily wafted
by the breezes. -This is the rase with
the oeed of tho rnoccas-in Cowers and
meadow pinks aud the other beautiful
plants of our woods and bogs called
orchids. And the tiny bodies, like atorcs
of dust, termed "apores," that answer
to fcped in ferns and messes and toad
stools, are borne away by the lightest
breath of air. But most seeds are them
pelves too heavy for this. So they are
ofttimcs provided with thin, broad
wings that carry them before the wind
as a suil carries a beat The pairs of
"keys" that hang in clusters from the
maple trees in spring are such winged
fruits. When ripe, tiiey float slowly to
the ground, or if a high wind is blow
ing they arc carried farther from tho
tree. The rsh has thick bunches of
winged fruits much like ther, but (in

NOT GOOD EVIDENCE.
It Is aa Easy Matter to Chang Phota-fc-rapl.le
Photrpmrhic copies of an original, it
is claimed, are not acceptable as proof
before a court, inasmuch as the photo
graphs may easily be changed to suit
the wish. Expert picture makers can
tako a photograph, aud by various proc
cscos secure a composite containing sev
eral features desired that did not exist
in the original.
A celebrated photographer of this city
declared that it is an easy matter to
change photographs. Pictures can l
made to show the body of one person
with the head of another, or it is poasi
ble to insert certain features desired in
a photrgraph. The producers qf uxt
phctcgraphs often ne the form of one
subject and the head of another in or

"By tho us3 of nitric acid," ho said,
"any part tf the silver print photo

print, which is unlikely, the same effect
could be secured by the use of aqaaregia
cr a liquid composed of a mixture cf
nitric and moriatio acids, which acts as
a solvent for gold or platinum prints."
It was shown that original signatures
could be erased and others p&ited or
copied thereon and then a photograph

The population of Chinatown on Sun

may be accennted for by the fact that

of New York and Brooklyn, and from
Long Island, New Jersey and Connecti

their friends and to do business. Since
tbo American Sunday docs not permit
