The Cifrcta of Komi Remllns.
The mischief of voracious novel rend
iría; la reailr much more like the mlacliief
of dram drinking than appears at Grot
sight. It tends to nake all other liternry
nourishment Intolerable, Just as dram
drinking tends to make oil true food in
tolerable, and to supersede food by drink.
The voracious novel reader of today, os
we have said, rejects Scott, because Scott's
novels contain so much good food that it
Is not mere story telling. The penuine
novel reader detests what ho calls tame
stories, stories in which tho interest is
not exap-frerated and p-led up ten time as
high as tla interests of ordinary lifo. Ho
wants always to bo foelinir a thrill of ex
citement running through his nerves, al
ways to be living u Imagination tlironj-h
the concentrated essenco of the perils of a
hundred adventurous lives, instead of
toiling calmly through the ordinary hopes
and foars of one.
No state of mind can bo moro unwhole
some, because nono is moro calculated to
divert the energies from tho sort of rjuiet
tanks to which they should bo habitually
applied, and to keep them htnstched on
the tenter hooks of expectation, waiting
for a sort of strain which is novcr lively
to occur, and If It did ,cccnr, would cer
tainly not find a man's energies n;iy tho
better prepared for it for having 'been
worn out previously with a long series of
imaginary oxcitomonts. ' The habit of
dram drinking, it is said, IcaJs o futty
degeneration of the heart, I. o.. c.-:ces:;ivo
fattening round tho heart, .imd weak
action of the heart lit consequeiieo.
So. too. tho habit of exciting novel
reading leads to fatty degenera
tion of the literary mind, I. o., to nn
unhealthy and spasmodic action of tho
iinannation, and a general wca.'iiM-.in: of
tho power of entering thoroughly into the
solid interests of real life. fco "far us we
know, tho only . efTectivo cure, for this
habit of literary dram drink i a euro
not always forthcoming is a moral shock
of some kind .which esposen, the hollow
ocas of all theso unra.1 in -rests, end

tho way of a ticket that will bring him
fame and an enviable bank account. It
Is simply this: The purchaser of an Iron
chid ticket U not to be required to write
his name or make any formal declaration
as to his intention In regard to the ticket.
Nothing of the kind. The ugent who
miUs the low rate round, trip points his i
little camera nt yi u while he gives you
your chango. It records tho imai;o of the
purcliKser iu nil Instant. Tho agent pulls
ont tho slide, rubs his chemical apougo
over tho sensitized paper and thero you
are. In tlr. upper hit fiand corner of tho
ticket ho pastes that picture, puts It in
under a stamp that emliosses tho edges,
aud unless you can find somebody that
looks enough like you to risk the chanco
of a return on your image the ticket will

The bieyclo forco that lias been organ

unteers recently had its second field ma
neuvers, tha first having been held at
Easter Rainy and disagreeable weather
embarrassed tho troops on each of these
dates, but tho result of tho turnout has
been very satisfactory. Un the recent
trials the men coveroii about 10U miles In
forty-eight hours, fighting, scouting and
camping by the way. Thero wero soven
teen oliie-ers and seventy-seven men out,
made up of representatives of a numbor
of tho leading volunteer regiments.
The force was ilivid.d into t v.o bodies,
ono retreating and tho other following it.
Al frequent intervals tho retreating orco
mado stands at bridges nnd other eligiólo
points of defense, and tho pursuers wero
compelled to halt, dismount, send out a
skirmish lino and pcrfoim all tho other
preliminaries of mtaek, as though in

Sax FiiANt Tsco, Feb. 8. "There goes
a mining expert," said Col. John Hull of
Tucon, as be pointed to a tall dark-eyed
girl, abont 26 years old, who was walking
rapidly down Market street.
"She is here buying n restaurant oulSt
with which she i going to start to-morrow
lor the Ilanpia Hala mines. She will be
the fii-Ht woman in the new camp, although
there are 1,500 men there.
Her nime is Nellie Cashman, and she in
known throughout all the mining towns of
Arizona. She came to Tucon about nine
years ago from Dodue City, Kansas. She
got to examining the oreas it cauie out of
the Tucson mines, and wns poon as good a
judge of its value as her brother Jim who
worked in one of them.
"Pretty soon the miners got an idea
that she was a iiood guexaer, and they be
gan to bet on her judgement, bhe hit it
close every time, and her fame spread.
Miners are always superstitious, and they
begae to think that to have her around
anil get her good opinion would bring
good luck. You can just, bet he wa9 treat
ed like a queen wherever she went.
"Miss Cashman gave some good advice
about where to dig tor oie, too. Some of
the best in the Contention wi found by
following her advice about running adrift.
Over in (Irahani county she made a hit one
iUj in copper und when he went to
Tombstone she passed her judgement
on some mines there and had more good

lii.-nd View mines on her advice, and the
only il vidend they ever yielded wat the

that were bought by her ndvice after she
had examined and reported favorably on

in them, ns well as staked out and de
veloped claims for herself. In Tucson,
IJbee, Tomlistoue and several olher
towns Mis fnthman has conducted gener
il stores and big lodging houses for the
miners. She is adventurous in pushing
forward to a new region as any man miner
villi a fresh stake, and she no sooner hears
of a new and promising camp than she
tnrts for it. She bnjs town lots, place
-ites, nnd led.' claims for next to nothing,
nnd unloads at a big prolit.
"At Pint she didn't get out. of (lie camps
non enough, und consequently she has
been poor about as ninny times as she has
been rich. She has big rhu k, thuogli, and
I if she goes broke in one place she soon
makes a turn and gets up iigiiiu,
"Down in Harqua Ilala her flannel-
sliirted implores will set out bacon and
beans for the miners at a dollar a plate,
and she will make her locations and begin
mining as usual.
"She reads a pood deal nnd ir. pretty
well informed on most all subjects, and
she is a quick, incisive t .Iker. When she
has a reverse hhe tukes it nonchalently,
and is just ns level-headed, self-contained
,nd serme us if she bail iiihiIh a fortuno."
