A Sacred Vm. I
A commercial tourist traveling In the In
terest of a fancy crockery and glassware
bouse arrived at the Pulmer House re
cently with his large trunks filled with
samples, which he arranged upon the
tables in his room. After completing thia
work he took from his hand satchel a large
and handsome urn. which he placed on his
dressing case. It was a peculiar looking
article, resembling the designs of ancient
times. He looked at it intently for a few
moments, f rownetl and turned away, sigh
ing audibly. He went about his samples
wiJi aeice 2ae!aacfcjJy, aaai every time
his eyes rested on the mysterious urn he
sighed. Dropping into a large chair be
buried his face in his hands and was silent
for some minutes.
At last he was aroused from his reverie
by the appearance of one of his oldest cus
tomers and friends. His face brightened
and the two entered into a brisk conversa
tion. They had talked upon all subjects,
when suddenly the Chicago man saw the
urn on the dressing case -and exclaimed:
"Why, old man, what a peculiar design.
What price have you on that?" The
knir;ht of the gripsack frowned as he re
plied: "That is not for sale. That is one
of my personal effects." The Chicago
glass man proceeded to examine it.
"Mighty pretty thing. Oh, there are
ashes in here. I daresay you use it in
your smoking set." The young man could
not avoid an explanation. "You see," he
said, with some feeling, "my wife re
quested before she died that her body be
cremated and that I carry her ashes with
me in my travels. I complied with her
request and those are the ashes of my
wife." The Chicago man suddenly thought
of a previous engagement and left the
room unceremoniously. Chicago Herald.
The Spread of Cholera.
Professor Pettenkofer, of Munich, is the
great cholera authority among medical
men, and his theories as to the propagation
of cholera by water are generally accepted
by the profession. The observations of Dr.
Snow, Dr. Frankland and Mr. Simon in
certain epidemics of cholera in London
have conclusively connected outbreaks
of the disease in various districts with the
use of drinking water contaminated with
the discharges from cholera patients. All
Investigations appear clearly to show that
the prime factor, and that without which
no other conditions can take effect, is the
introduction into the locality of the spec
ific infecting matter, this being accom
plished in general by the arrival of infected
That cholera might be carried by the
agency of the winds from one country to
another is held as a possibility, though
there is no satisfactory evidence on this
point. The general theory accepted is that
the germs get into the water and thus are
taken into the system. Pettenkofer holds
that the disease has been generally found
to prevail more extensively and with
greater violence in low lying districts than
in elevated situations. He also maintains
that the character of the soil has a close
relation to the spread of the disease, and
that shallow, porous soils afford special
facilities for the reception and distribu
tion of the cholera germs through the
ground water of the locality. Harper's
Rubles of More Value Tban Diamonds.
Most people suppose that diamonds are
the most precious of all gems, whereas the
fact is that fine rubies are at present
enormously more valuable. For example.
here are a ruby and a diamond set together
in a ring. Kach stone weighs four carats
extictly. The diamond, though of the
first water, is worth only $1,000, whereas
the ruby is worth $U,000. Here is a ruby of
nine carats that is valued at $45,000. The
best rubies, of the real pigeon blood color,
come from Burmah, but the production
there is very small now. A British con
cern, the Bannah Ruby company, has a
concession which gives it control of the
mines, but many obstacles have been found
In the way of their successful operation.
Chief among these is the deadly fever
which guards the gem deposits.
Of the fifty engineers and surveyors sent
at the beginning to explore the fields,
forty-eight were stricken with the mias
matic plague, from which no white man
seems to escape. The remaining two had
had it previously. Natives must be em
ployed to do the digging, and to prevent
them from stealing the finest stones is well
nigh imposs lile. An incredible variety of
devices is resorted to by the thieves, the
least ingenious Vicing to swallow the ru
bies, and where articles of such highly
concentrated value are concerned detec
tion is most difficult. Interview in New
Getting Even vrltli a Spotter.
A passenger conductor on one of the In
dianapolis lines was recently telling a
confidential friend how he beat a spotter.
"I well knew," he said, "that there was a
spotter on my train, as I had been apprised
of the fact by a friend just before we left,
and I made up my mind to for once out
general a spotter and resort to no dishonest
methods to do it. As luck would have it,
at the second station from the point I took
the train a party of four boarded the cars,
and not having had time to get their tick
ets put up cash fares, which for the party
amounted to twenty-eight dollars. On
reaching Indianapolis I reported the sum
of cash fares collected on my trip correctly,
but rearranged the points between which
the cash fares were collected so that the
spotter's report would appear inaccurate
except as to the amount of cash fares paid.
The next day I learned that the spotter
had been discharged for not attending to
business." The conductor closed by spy
ing that he never took one cent of tue
company's money except that paid him for
his services by the paymaster. Indianapo
Must Have Felt Like a "Cold Corpse.
A few years ago a young man living not
over a thousand miles from Hartford, fell
head over heels in love with a young lady
whom he had been introduced to at the
home of a friend. He wrote her several
notes and received no answer, and finally
becoming desperate wrote that she would
find his cold corpse on her front porch if
she did not send him "one little line." She
wrote, and the answer she received was this:
"Dear Miss : I ate the stamp that
was on your envelope, because it had
touched your lips."
"Dear Sir: The stamp you ate was put
on the envelope by niynegto coachman."

Sir William Cubits blew away with one
