The Story of the Buried Prize of ar*
An English buccaneer, having looted
and fired a rich prize, found himself
pursued in Mini by a Spanish pirate,
and in order to save his treasure sought
some Isolated shore on which to bury
it until the time came to divide the
spoils with his followers. So he ran
into the Mahaina group and. landing on
a low lying strip of sand and palm
trees. ca-hed his plunder and. naming
the place Fortune Island, sailed away,
fie left a number of negro slaves be
hind to guard ihe buried treasure, and
the present inhabitants are said to be
descended from these slaves. The For
tune islanders believe the old sea rover
never returned for his chest and that
it is still hidden somewhere near the
tide level. It is no uncommon sight
for tourists on the rare occasions when

Haw They Are Becoming Popular In
The substitution of concrete for
wood, stone and brick as a paving
material has extended to all sections
of the United States. For example,
the following improvements Hre re
ported in a single day:
Calvert, Tex., which boasts of be
ing the cleanest, prettiest town In cen
tral Texas, calls special attention to
her cement sidewalks. Georgetown,
Tex., recently laid four miles of con
crete pavements. I'eoria, 111., is do
ing extensive work In the same line
Decatur. HI., has been putting down
concrete pavements and curbing. El
gin, III., has adopted ordinances com
pelling the use of cement in sidewalk
construction. Des Moines, la., is pav
ing a public square. Little Rock, Ark.,
is using concrete blocks. Orange,
N. J., recently decided that only con
crete shall be used for pavements
Springfield. Mo., has adopted the IIos
sain concrete street pavement. These
are just a few towns, some of them
not important to the outside world,
but the Improvements reported are
characteristic of what is taking place
everywhere, aud hundreds of thou
sands of barrels of cement are used
annually for this purpose where prao
tlcally none was used a few years ago.
After noting the durability of concrete
pavements conies the conviction that
the same material would make a good
wall, time proof floors and sills, In
destructible posts and steps, etc., and

The little town of Newberry, Ind.,
with a population estimated at GOO,
claims to have all the records in the
state broken for extent of cement
sidewalks in a town of its size. It
has been Incorporated only a few
months and now has two miles of
cement walks completed and six more
miles ordered for completion before
winter. If cement walks are a good
thing for part of the citizens, they are
good for all, according to the reason
ing of the town board, consequently
not a street in the little town will
escape a sidewalk on both sides.
VALUE OF ROAD KEEPERS.
Rational Plan For Repairing High
ways at Little Cost.
Several states in the United States
have spent millions of dollars in build
ing improved roads. All states spend
vast sums every year In road making
and repairing. And it is strange, but
true, that a large proportion of all this
money ts wasted. Improved roads,
built at great cost, are systematically
let alone until they become bad again,
when there is a bowl about the repair
bill. Ordinary roads are fixed up once
a year and then neglected until the an
uual repairing is due. The rational
plan of having road keepers to take
care of the roads all the time does not
seem to have found favor anywhere in
•H IMPllOVKD VAC S DAM ROAD.
the United States, though It has long
been in successful operation abroad.
A little work at the right time will
save a lot of It later on almost any
road, yet we continue to follow the
wasteful plan of waiting till the bill
grows bigger. On all our improved
roads men should be kept constantly
at work, and the same is true of most
ordiuary dirt roads. A couple of men
and a team can care for quite a stretch
of road and do it cheaper than the
same road can be kept in repair by a
spasmodic effort, often made by those
who know little about roads.—National

DEEP SEA WATER.

with upward opening valve at the top
and bottom, connected together on a
central stem. Lugs are east on the
aide of the cylinder for conveniently
securing It at any point along the
length of the line by which it ts to
be lowered Into the sea. During the
lowering of the line the valves of the
bottle are kept unsealed by the pas
sage of the water through the cylin
der during its descent, but when the
motion is reversed the valves seat
themselves and are locked by the de
scent of a small propeller In the
framework above the upper valve,
which rides Idly on a sleeve during the
lowering of the bottle, but descends
along a screw thread to press the
valves upon their seats when the line
commences to be hauled up. A speci

the water bottle has descended is thus

Th«W That Carry Only Diversified
Lines In Stock.
An editorial article in the Agricultur
al Southwest, which upholds the gen
eral store in the smaller cities and
towns as against the specialized busi
ness. contains a hint for those who
would compete successfully with the
bl£ mai] order store that carry every
thing. from a hairpin to a ftortabTe
house. The editor writes:
One of our eastern exchanges de
votes a whole column of bis valued
paper to an article on the mistake
that the present day merchant is mak
ing in running a general store.
This article endeavors to show that
the old rule of "no two things can be
done at the same time and done
right." Using this old rule in bearing
out his a-^ument that where any mer
chant tr'es to handle a multiplicity of
lines he vannot make a success of any
one, we do not in the least doubt the
sincerity of his belief. At one time in
the not distant past we were of the
same opinion, until we had our ideas
changed by first hand knowledge.
The most successful merchants of
the southwest, with the best conducted
stores, bringing to their owners the
greatest margin of profit, are those
who have diversified lines. In fact,
the merchant who sells everything,
from a needle to a traction engine, is
the one who broadens, and when the
call of the big town reaches him he is
qualified to go Into the fight against
his longer established competitor and
get a share of that business which his
all around knowledge has taught tills
how to talk about and handle.

It Is the poorest sort of economy to
have bad sidewalks There are many

more than enough to put the walks In
