Strange Story of the Origin of Whit ky Gap, Wyoming. , Drlnklss the Water of It Sprlna; Created Trouble A-iuonast Sum Soldlea Who Were 1" j Camp There. One of the historic places in the west is Whisky Gap, Wyo. The old-time dwellers of mountain and plain, the men who "fought lndiaus and hunted buffalo out west" during the overland ifivu r.f the ciirlv 'fids, hare - shruinred their shoulders with satisfac- i tion at the mention of Whisky Gap for nearly 40 years. This is the place, ac ' cording to their belief, where real "fire water" gushed up out of the rocks in ? a beautiful mountain spring to quench, j the thirst of a whole company of Uncle Sam's ti-iiiued Indian fighters. "It was nothing but pure spring water," they eay. "A veritable fountain of youth." Whisky Gap received its name in 1S62, during the building of the overland : stage route from Denver to Salt Lake City and the Pacific coast. It happened in this way: The people ' of Denver had long been working to se j cure the regular overland stage route, i then connecting the east and west. In ' 1S62 "Ben" Holliday, a veteran stage man, became the proprietor of the great overland line, and he agreed upon a route running through Denver to the west. He decided to discontinue that : part of the road running up the North . riatte and the Sweetwater rivers, and across South Pass, Wyo. The many In "dian difficulties experienced on this : route was the inducement to abandon it. The new trail led by way of Jules burg, Col., to Denver, and on over the established wagon road to Fort Lup ton and north across the Laramie plains, then due west through Bridge water Pass, Wyc, joining the old trail leading across the country to the Pa cific coast. The change was made dur ing the summer of 1862. All the rolling stock, horses and other property of the company were gathered at the sta tion just above Devil's Gate, in central Wyoming. Company A of the Eleventh Ohio cavalry, with Maj. OTorrell in command, was the detailed escort at the time. ' During the first day the long train of coaches, wagons, horses and mules made 11 miles from the station where the property had been gathered. The route chosen was directly south from the Sweetwater river. Thi camp se lected was in a gap in the mountains, where there was a fine spring and plen ty of wood for cooking purposes. Short ly cfter gc:ng into camp the major dis covered that quite a number of his sol- iiers were intoxicated, and he at once sent for Lieut. W. H. Brown, who waa ifBcer of the day, and informed him of :he condition of many of the men, and rave it as his opinion that some one .vas selling whisky in the camp. The command was doing escort duty not nly for stage, stock and stores, but also 'or a number of emigrants who had ivailed themselves of the opportunity "or safe conduct over the plains. t Lieut. Brown received orders to ;eareh all wagons, and if he should dis cover whisky to destroy it. Taking a ;orporal find three or four men. he com nenced the search for the contraband irti-.-lc, and found at least a barrel of -vhisky in an emigrant wagon. The of icer ordered his men to roll the barrel t of the wagon, knock in the head ind empty the contents on the ground. This was done, but it chanced thnt the pot where the whisky was emptied was ust f. l i ve the spring, and the fiery iqu;!l went pouring down into the wa er n.r: ,'y of the camp. The soldiers aw whr't uas going on and they rushed orward with cups, canteens, buckets ,nd can" kettles to save what they ouid f.f ;!.e coveted "spirits." Many a nan st-.pi'fd over the spring and drank lmost viil, rvnt breathing until he vra rur.k. A half hour later the intoxi snt v n- ' hi wing its effect pretty gen rally cr-i'irvl the camp, and soon but ew Ki.brr n en could befound. Onesol ier v 1 o had succceeded in getting a ull cn nt :"Ti from the spring paid his eppe-'lii Maj. O'Farrell at the head uarters tj-nt, assuring- his command ig ofnt- r. with maudlin roein and jany a "hie," that that was the finest pring he had ever seen and the rerj est wattr he had ever tasted, J Maj. O'Farrell was apprehending an t.tack f rr. ni the Indians that night, and - ae condi tion of his men fairly disheart ned him. He sow at a glance that even Binn:! U'.i'd of savages could make successful raid on his camp; conse quently the sober and less intoxicated n were kept on the alert that night, fortunately no Indians put in an ab earance, and by morning the de auched men had slept off their into.ii ition. I Thus the gap in the mountains where he o-.trn was made received the name ;,f Whisky Gap. For many years it wss fic favorite ocmping place for the more : .' -editions of the old freighters and emi grant of the "trail days," but the little : ripjr was never a "fountain of youth," ' i it hnd been In the old days, whan jire water" gushed up out of the rocks i quench the thirst of a company of nited States soldiers.

A dark navy blue had been made up into a skirt and open bod ice, which was filled in with an under vest formed of fully gathered black and white striped ribbon in marked contrast ta tho red rcvers. This bod ice was of the jacket order, with tabs at the waist. The sleeves were made Bhort to the elbow, with full sleeves below of the striped silk ending in a red cuiT. The skirt was cut, as so many are, on the cross, with a seam up the center of the back. The pompadour element is a grat feature in spring fashions, and it re peated itself in the sleeves at the wriat. There was a jacket bodice, and a great deal of stitching figured on the seams, and thuuc close-set towb of stitching will be a marked novelty in coming modes. It was exemplified in a dress of quite a new color, a vivid turquoise with a predominance of green in it, the material a fine-faced cloth. The tunic here crossed at the Bide, and was edged all round with three stitched bands of a lighter tone, each band being covered with stitchings about half an inch apart, while the petticoat was of the lighter shade, entirely covered with bands of the darker color, in close set rows, also stitched all aver. The bodice waa full, with white satin trim mings covered with lace; it buttoned over at one side with three square paste buttons, and had epaulettes and cuff trimmings of white satin, with silver embroidery mingled.

The apple crop this year is twice at large as that of 1898, according to South Water street apple kings. Even thea it is but 60 per cent, of a full crop and is not to be compared with the immense crop of lS'JG, when apples sold as low as 75 cents a barrel and were so cheap that no money could be made on them by either grower or handler. The quality this year is also superior tothatofl S9S, with prices in gen eral lower. New York apples are higher than a year ago, but that is due to the exceptionally fine quality of this season's Jew York fruit The distribution of the crop varies, as it does every year. Xew York has about 40 per cent, of a crop, Michigan 50 per cent, of a crop, mostly of No. 2 apples. TheXew England crop is light. Last year the west had none. This season Indiana has a larger yield than for ten years past and the piles of apples on the cellar floor are bigger than for a long time. Ohio and Iowa did fairly welL Illinois has a faircrop of mediums. Mis souri's yield is small and of poor qual ity. Wisconsin and Minnesota are buy ers. California did well, as did Canada, which ha about 60 percent, of a crop. The Pacific coast is coming up in ap ple production. It is not much of a fac tor this year, however, on account of the quantity of fruit raiged in the mid dle west and east. In a few years it will be of greater importance, although evea now it is of importance in case of a shortage over the rest of the country. This year the middle, west and east are exchanging fruit in a kind of apple reciprocity. New York is swapping her famous greenings, Baldwins, russets. Grimes' golden and spys for western Jonathans, wine saps and Ben Davis, especially the latter. The apple picking season is now over and car loads of apples are coming into Chicago for cold storage. Only the best-hand-picked apples will stand cold stor age for any length of time. . Chicago handles about 30 per cent, of the eggs in the country, and at least 20 per cent, of its apples. It would handle a larger percentage of the latter were it not for the number of cold storage plants con structed throughout the fruit districts in New York state. 'The common practice of large South Water street apple men buying apples varies in different sections. In New York most of the apples purchased by them are bought by the barrel, being picked by the grower but packed in the orchard by the commission firms' own packers. A few firms have as many as 500 men in their employ during the four to six weeks packing season. But New York fruit farmers are old hands at the business, and many of them pack their own fruit, either selling it to ap ple firms representatives or consigning it themselves tocoromission-houses. In Illinois more apples are bought on the trees. Occasionally speculative in vestors buy the prospective crops of orchards in bloom. In Chicago three or four South Water street houses handle the fruit in car lots, as well as in lesser quantity, and to them the minor commission men go for part of their stock. Firms sandwiched between these two extremes in the vol ume of their business buy outright over the country and receive commission on a lesser scale than the leaders. Chicago Times-Herald. BIG BILL FOR SPORT. Sir Thomas Lipton's Fun Will Cost a Million Dollars. The Yaoat Raees Have Cost Both Stdea More Thaa Ever Be fore The Challenger's Haaalng Expense. Sir Thomas Lipton's decision not to challenge again for the America's cup before 1901 is better understood when the cost of this year's racing with the Shamrock is known. The races this season hare cost more on both sides than ever before. But the challenger, having to cross the ocean and race his yacht in foreign waters, has borne the greater expense. The Shamrock itself, in construction und equipment, is said on pretty good au thority to have cost nearly $400,000. Sir Thomas has admitted that he spent on the boat more than six times as much as Lord Dunraven did on the last Valkyrie, and Valkyrie II. cost ?C0,00O. Figuring on the $400,000 basis, it is easy to show that the English bar onet has spent about a million dollars on his season's sport. While in this country Sir T-oinas has maintained a ileet of six vessels, including the Shamrock. He has had his flagship, the Erin, come from Eng land. It is a sumptuous steam yacht, with a staff of stewards, cooks and servants to attend to his many guests. Then there was the Plymouth, a steam tender, on which the Shamrock's crew, the many carpenters, sailmakers, rig gers and machinists slept and ate, a tugboat for towing purposes when the Shamrock was becalmed, a small steam launch and small steamboat which ran betwen the Sandy Hook anchorage and the Battery to transport Sir Thomas' guests. Besides maintaining this fleet the baronet entertained in royal fash ion, more than a score of guests hav ing been brought from England at his own expense and many of them being provided by him with accommodations at the most expensive New York hotels. Sir Thomas also brought over his pri vate physician to attend to the party, and a painter, Chevalier de Martino. who was to produce marine views in oil of the cup races. On race days the baronet employed a band. All this cost Sir Thomas about $2,200 a day in running expenses, and the rac ing this year, owing to lack of wind, was prolonged over twice the usual period. A million dollars, everything taken into consideration, is not thought to be an excessive estimate of Sir Thomas' sport bill. And he lost the races. Besides, the Shamrock is utter ly worthless for any other purpose than trying for the America's cup. An old sea captain, looking at the Shamrock and the Columbia, said: "What would a poor man do with a boat like that? He couldn't use her. He couldn't keep her. To turn her around would cost money. He couldn't even burn her, for there's little to burn on her, and ' she wouldn't bring much at a sale." i Sir Thomas Lipton is a millionaire many times over. He is also a bachelor, I and has no near relatives, it is said. He can afford to spend $1,000,000 now and then on some yacht races, but not every season. It is not surprising that he should decide not to indulge in the ; luxury of a challenge again inside of two years. Springfield (Mass.) Repub lican. FOR TEE HOUSEKEEPER.

The process is simple. An excellent glaxe may be found by dis solving a half ounce of gelatine in a pint of water, flavoring and coloring it with extract of beef. To be perfectly successful, the meat must be cold be fore the glaze is put on, and the first coat should be allowed to dry before the second is put on. The glaze must be wsrm and applied with a brush.

Meteor Prefer Moralaij. An interesting and significant fact is that the average hourly number of me teor's is only half as great in the even ing as in the morning and in the even ing their velocity is lower. The reason is that at sunset we have before us the point in the heavens from which we are moving in our orbital journey around the sun, while the morning we face the point toward which we are advancing1; in the evening we are in the rear of the earth, at sunrise in front. This in crease in the numbers and speed of the morning meteors is just what ought to happen if they are bodies moving indis criminately in all directions under the sun's attraction, and with the velocity (about 26 miles a second) which a body would acquire in falling toward the sun from a distance very great as compared with the size of our planetary orbits.
