Special Correspondence. Speaking ubout the tuiniKution of old bills which arrive at the treasury de pjirtmeut from the New Orleans sub treasury, Assistant Treasurer Meliuo 8aid to mo recently that this was abso lutely necessary for the protection of the clerks who handle this old currency. These clerks," naid Major Meliuo, are constantly exposed to danger iu their handling and counting of old cur rency. Sometimes the smell of these old bills is nauseating. I don't remember, however, a case where any clerk has ever I ecu attacked by a disease from the handling of this money. This may be due to the fact that every precaution is taken. Whenever money has come here from points infected by contagious diseases it has always been fumigated. The clerks frequently wash their hands with disinfecting soaps and take other precautions. I consider that they have been remarkably fortunate. Found Upon the Dead. There have been cases at the treasury of money sent in for redemption iu a terrible state. In several instances this money has been taken from tho bodies of people found mysteriously murdered. Tho bodies lay for weeks or months without discoviry until tho clothing which coutaiiu d tho money would be alive with putrid matter. Money thus discovered is not handled by tho author ities, but rushed to tho treasury for re demption. It is sometimes iu such con dition that tho odor is almost unbeara ble. This is only one of many instances of a similar nature. Dogs and goats which swallow money are often killed, dissected and tho remnants of the money sent to the treasury for redemption. Tho department of agriculture has issued a very .readable pamphlet con cerning the camphor tree and its culti vation for profit in tho United States. Tho tree is a broad leaved evergreen and is related to the red bay and to the sas safras of this country. In its nativo hab itat, eastern Asia, Formosa and south ern JajKin, it attains a height of from CO to 100 feet and has a trunk 20 to 40 inches in diameter. Its Range Under Cultivation. Notwithstanding tho comparatively narrow limits of its natural environ ment, tho camphor tree grows well ,in cultivation under widely differ ent conditions. It has become abun dantly naturalized in Madagascar. It flourishes at Uueuos Ayres. It thrives in Egypt, in tho Canary islands, in southeastern France and in tho San Joaquin valley in California, where tho summers are hot and dry. Largo trees, at least 200 years old, are growing iu the temple courts at Tokyo, where they are subject to a winter of 70 to 80 nights of frost, with an occasional mini mum tern p rat ure as low as 12 to 16 degrees F. Tho most northern localities in tho United States where the camphor tTeo has been grown successfully out of doors aro Charleston and Summerville, in South Carolina, Augusta, Ga. , and Oakland, Cal. At Charleston, Summerville and Au gusta tho trees have withstood a mini mum temperature of 15 degrees F., but they have been protected by surround ing trees and buildings. At Mobilo tho trees have grown and fruited in protect ed situations, while iu exposed places they have been repeatedly destroyed by frosts. Whilo the camphor tree will grow on almost any soil that is not too wet, it does best on a well drained, sandy or loamy soil, and it responds re markably well to tho application of fer tilizers. Its growth is comparatively slow on sterile soils, but under favorable conditions it sometimes grows very rapidly. An instance is recorded of a camphor tree in Italy a foot in diameter and DO fitt high, 8 years from tho seed. Under ordinary conditions, however, such a girth is not often attained in less than 25 years, and such a height is rarely attained in a century. A tree planted at New Orleans in 1883 is now 40 feet in height. Uses of the Tree and Its Products. Tho principal commercial uses of the camphor tree are for tho production of camphor gum and camphor oil. Cam phor gum is employed extensively in medicine. It enters into the composi tion of many kinds of liniments for ex ternal application. For liniment it is used especially in combination with olivo oil. It is taken internally for hys teria, nervousness, nervous headaches, diarrhea and diseases affecting tho ali mentary canal. It is sp!cifio in cases of typhoid fever and cholera. Camphor fumes have also been used with success in cases of asthma. In tho native forests camphor is ob tained almost exclusively from the wood of the trunks and the larger roots and branches. These are first chopp!il into small pieces and sometimes pounded or bruised to facilitate distillation. The work is jerformed by hand labor and tho processes in use seem rather cruda In some parts of Formosa a layer only about an inch thick is cut from tho larger roots and from part of the trunk, the object being to obtain tho best cam phor bearing wood without killing the tree. Trees thus treated often die. Where trees are cut down the best parts of the trunks aro sometimes saved for lumWr. From 20 to 50 pounds of chips are required for one pound of crude gum. Tm-s 50 years old in Formosa yield an average of about 133 pounds of crude gum. Many different forms of stills and different methods of distilla tion are employed in different districts, but all result in a separation of tho gum from the wood by means of sh am or ho water. The trees will endure severo pruning with little apparent injury. One-third of tho leaves and young shoots may be removed at one time without materially cheeking the growth of the tree. When tho camphor tree is killed m arly to the ground by frost, it sends up vigorous sh.K.tM. Carl St -non eld. Strive to lcavo to the world tho leg acy of a well-lived life. CURRENT MISCELLANY. Guanajuato, you must know, is one of tho oldest and richest silver mining districts in the world. Founded nearly 350 years ago, this picturesque Mexican city has produced more than $1,000, 000,000 in bullion and is not tired yet. In 1527 a Swinish miner invented in Mexico the tin apost ami simplest meth od yet known for mlucing silver ores tho so called "patio pniccss" by which the great bulk of the silver of Mexico and Peru has been extracted for so many centuries. To this day the great hacien das for patio reduction are among the most interesting features of tho great silver camps of Spanish America. Each hacienda is a little willed city, with its strong ramparts and corner towers loopholed for muskets, its huge sheds for tho primitive ore grinding, its pleas ant ofticcs and home for the admiuistra dor, its quarters for employees, its sta bles for hundreds of mules and its enor mous stone skillets wherein tho hughest omelets in the world aro cooked. Torta in Spanish America is tho usual word for omelet. It is literally a "cake, " and "of eggs" is implied. Duttho min ers use it spoeilically for tho "omelet" of wet ground ore seasoned with tho necessary cln micals to assemble tho sil ver. In looks it is simply a stupendous mud pio. Harper's Hound Table. Characteristics of Oreek Scenery. Thomas Dwight (Joodell writes of "A Journey In Thessaly" in The Cen tury. Professor Ooodell says: The scenery is an unfailing delight. j Two things above all others character- j izo the scenery of Greece. First are the marvelous color efforts wrought by a southern sun iu a pellucid atmosphere This excess of plein air, this ever changing aura of ethereal hues, mocks tho painter's palette, as it does all ver bal description. And then one must add that incomparably blue sea, to whose flashing wavelets the yEschylean phrase, "unnumbered laughter," is moro fit ting than to those of any other waters. In the si-cond place, no other region so small can boast such great variety. Sailing up tho Eulxran strait, after the Cycladi s have grown dim astern, ono passes a striking succession of green shores, bare gray mountains with one or two caps of snow and here and there a forest. Thoso smiling fields on the left were part of Aulis, where tho thousand ships of tho Aclueans gathered, "bearing woes to Priam and the Trojans. " Then comes tho narrow Euripos, with its rushing current. Again tho strait wid ens. Tho long stretch of gray cliffs ahead of us on tho right is the baso of Makistos, one of the series of mountains that Esi hylos makes bear tho signal beacons between Troy and Mycenaj. Be fore wo entered tho Maliao gulf, how ever, it was too dark to catch even a distant glimpse of Thermopylae. At daylight next morning we lay at anchor in the harbor of Yolo, some seven or eight hours lato. Fourpenny Doctors. Russia is not a country to which phy sicians who find it difficult to make a sufficient income should bo advised to emigrate. Tho fees aro exceedingly low, and 20 kopcks. or abrnt threepence, is not an uncommon charge for a patient to pay who goes to tho physician's consulting riKims. On tho other hand, it must be remem bered that there are many men in Lou don who are content to take fourpenco for a consultation, and the writer is ac quainted with a doctor having tho double qualification of the College of Surgeons and the College of Physicians who does u sixjR'nny practice and is not only per fectly satisfied, but thinks himself far better off than many of tho men with whom he went to college who are eking out a scanty existence iu In-tter class work and earning far less money than he dtx's. This sixpenny fee, small as it is, not only includes advice, but a certain quantity of medicine as well, sufficient to last for two or three day & Strand Magazine. Value and Uses of Cottonseed Waste. "Cotton seed waste, which a genera tion ago accumulated at the ginhouses, filled up the streams, rotted in the fields and became an irritating nuisance, is now worth about irliO.OOO, 000 a year," writes William George Jordan on "Wonders of tho World's Waste" in Tho Ladies' Homo Journal. "Every bale of cotton leaves a legacy of half a tone of seed, which, it is said, brings the planter nearly as much as his cot ton. The oil is used for finer grades of soap, as a substitute for lard and is so near olive oil that an expert can hardly detect the difference. The hulls aro fed to cattle, make an excellent fuel, are valuable as paper stock, and when burn ed the ashes make a fertilizer which is most efficacious. It has recently leeu discovered that cottonseed oil, with the addition of 18 per cent of crude iudia rubber, makes an imitation which can not bo distinguished from genuine rub ber." Hoodlum. The old proofreader was holding forth upon tho question of tyjKigraphical er rors and their occasional influence on posterity. "The word 'IkkmIIuui' is an instance of this," he said as he knocked the ashes out of his piM. "Out in San Francisco 25 years ago there was a no torious character named Muldoon, who was the leader of a gang of young ruf fians. They were a terror to the com munity and about as tough a hit of citi zens as you could find on the coast. A rciorter who had be n assigned to a story iu which they had figured under took to coin a word designating the gang. Ho reversed the name of the lead er and referred to them as 'Noodlums.' The comiositor mistook tho n for an h, and as hoodlums the word passd the proofreader, and now 'hoodlum' is a recognized word and will probably sur vive. Philadelphia Koeord.

"I don't believe the stories told about tho natives iu Africa and Australia rid ing ostriches, " said a California man the other day. "Americans are the best riders on earth, but they cannot ride os triches. I saw this pretty thoroughly tried on one invasion. A cowboy who had vauquish!Hl every pony ho ever un dertook to break in was induced to try an ostrich. After an hour's hard work he succeeded in mounting the bird, which at first tried to shako him off, then to get away by running, but those THE OSTItlt'll SKIZKD THK MAN BY ONR LEO. tactics, of course, had no effect upon the cowboy. Then, in spite of all the man could do, the ostrich succeeded in getting its head around and seizing the man by ono leg. He doubled his feet under him, and the ostrich reached over his wings and got a good hold of his back, throwing him heavily to the ground and trampling on him. It took three of us to chase the infuriated os trich away, and wo accomplished it barely in time to save the man's life. I don't believe tho native Australians ride ostriches. " Chicago News. The Cabby's Doleful Tale. Cabby 377, who stands at Eighth ave nue and One Hundred and Twenty-fifth street, took a passenger free from Har lem to Fourteenth street the other night. "It was the slickest deal lever saw," said 377 in telling later how he was bunkoed, "and the fellow threw the game into mo right when I thought I had him cold. I sized him for a man that lived down town, and I says, 'Cab, sir?' He stopied, looked mo all over and began to give mo a dream about my not being familiar "with the town. 'What!' says I. 'Why, I can take you to any place from Old slip to Yonkers and get there tho shortest way on the first trip.' Maybe you can,' says he, 'but you can't answer "Yes" to threo questions that I'll ask you about New York.' Well, I knew ho hail a game, but it seemed so easy that I couldn't let it go by on my life. Tho idea of my not be ing able to say 'Yes' to three questions was too silly, so I says, 'Let her go, pard, for tho cigars, ' and ho oih-us up with the first question : " 'Is Twenty-third street north of Fourteenth street?' says he. ' Yes, ' says L " 'Can I get a car here for tho Bat tery?' says he. 'Yes,' says I. " 'If I lose this bet, will you take mo down town free?' says he. Well, sir, it was five minutes beforo I came to. I was saying ' Yes' and 'No' and 'No' and Yes' for ten seconds licfore I see that I was in it. I'm a man of my word, and I took him down, but the next time I'll show the sports that this is no gam bling game that I'm running. It's a hack. See?" New York Sun. One on the Judge. Judge Campbell had just heard tho evidence against a young IhkhIIuui charged with disturbing the peace. "I think you're guilty, young man," declared tho judge. "Funds in tho treasury aro running low, so I guess I'll have to get in something toward my salary, as I'm getting hard up. I'll fine you $5." "You've got moro money than I have," pleaded the prisoner. "But I haven't. Show up what you've got," and the judge emptied his pock ets, which contained just 30 cents in change, on the desk. Tho prisoner turninl all of his pockets wrong side out and produced 25 cents. "You are worse off than I am," said the judge. "Fine remitted. You can ga" San Francisco Post. Another Smith Story. Mr. Smith bought a ticket on the sound steamer and at the same time asked for a stateroom. He was informed that all the rooms were taken. This was discouraging to Smith, but a happy thought struck him. "I asked to have a room held for me," ho said. "Oh, did you?" asked tho ticket seller. "What name, please?" "Smith." After exam ining his memorandum tho ticket seller said, "Beg pardon, sir, I see there aro two rooms held for you, Nos. 41 and 42." "I don't understand that," said the other. "I only wanted one rooim I'll take 42, if you please." So ho got his room all because his name was Smith, which shows that it is a good thing to have a name that is somewhat common. Boston Transcript. Pat's Triple Style In Eggs. A State street restaurant carries be side the doorway a board which says that threo eggs will be served "in ajy style" for 10 cents. It is said that a man bringing with him a trace of Irish brogue came into tho place the other day and called the waiter over to him. "Thr!o eggs for 10 cents?" ho asked. "That's right." "Any style?" "Any stylo." "Well, I'll have ono fried, ono boiled and one poached, and hurry 'em up." Chicago Record. Alaska lias a Oreat Front. Tho coast lino of Alaska exceeds iu length by 8,020 miles that of all the rest of the Uuitd States. To sco what is right and not to do it is want of courage. THE SPORTING WORLD. " The only formal sorting events of the farther plains are the coursing meets that are held in tho crisp fall weather. In South Dakota is tho principal one, but there are others in Nebraska and Kansas. At these come .together the best dogs that the nation affords, and it is not unusual to have hounds from abroad at the kennels. For many years tho greatest meets were eld on the Cheyenne bottoms in western Kansas. Uere was tho starting poiut of the prairie coursing. The racing still goes on, and many coursing meets will bo held this season. Tho gatherings aro alwajs large, for there is that in tho eager race for the prize that appeals to tho men of the west. Tho visitors are ranged up along side the judges and in a lino behind the dogs. Thin tho hounds ure brought out, two by two, and tho umpire and judge take their places. The slipper lets the dogs go at the same moment, and then the rabbit, which has been located in advance, is in for it. Ho usually thinks ho has plenty of time, and with the av erage dog this is true. But the hounds aro no slouches themselves at a run. They lower their handsome bodies and stretch their slender legs farther and farther until they seem to bo almost a straight line from toe to toe. The rab bit has no thought of hurrying at first. Ho gives n starthnl hop that sends him up in the air and forward a few feet Then another and another, and the dis tance between himself and tho dogs is increased. He halts, as he is accustom ed to do win n the farm dogs are after him, sees that he is too hotly pursued, and then goes on faster than before, but the dogs gain on him, and soon his pace reaches the maximum. It is some thing wonderful how ho does it. There ts not any running in tho usual sense of tho word, but a kind of a long hop that is more like the pace of the kangaroo than of any other animal. But at last ho wavers. The pace id too much for him. He turns this way and that, he dodges faster and faster, then when he turns he comes straight into the gaping mouth of one of the hounds, and the race is over. Chicago Times-Herald. Yacht on Wheels. A land boat, sloop rigeel and mount cd on wheels, that glides swiftly along tho streets profiled by tho wind, is tho latest invention of Charles Sleeper, HKKOUK THK WIND an ingenious boy of Berkeley, Cal. When in full sail, running before a brisk gale, the vessel is a sight to rouse wonder and to scare horses nearly out of their wits. The boat was planned with great Tare, l ouug Sleeper was as sisted in its construction by Stanley Cameron of North Berkeley. Neither of the boathuilders is over 15 years old. The exjHTiineut has been a great suc cess. The two boys spread all the sails and the wind (tarries them over level ground or up sloping streets. When they start down hill, they furl their sails and coast. Tho boat is mounted on two pairs of wheels. A third pair just clears the ground. These extra wheels project some distance beyond the others and prevent tho boat from capsizing when it careens in making a tack. There is a tall mast of cypress wood. There are two large sails. San Fran cisco Examiner. Hounding Deer. Hounding deer is ioor sport at best, bad for tho deer and the closest imitation of the tactics of the deer's great natural enemy, tho wolf. I like to hear the tongues of dogs running a hot scent, but I do not like the end of the chase, the butchering of a deer in tho water or tho usually easy chance on the runway. Still hunting is a sport of a much higher grade, and I think most true sportsmen will agree that a prime buck skillfully trailed and fairly shot is a more gratify ing prize than any number of victims chased to their death by dogs. Tho men who favor hounding, firejiuntiug, jack ing and tho like are either too lazy or too ignorant of tho fine points of still hunting to succeed at it. Anybody can pot a deer in water or if it bo driven almost over him, but the man who does not care to go deejier into sport than this has no claim to the title of sports-' man. It is to bo hoped that tho anti hounding law will encourage tho run way watchers and floaters to try still hunting and so learn the purest pleas ures of hunting deer. Nor need the dis gruntled ones throw their tongues too freely, for, unless my judgment is awry, under tho antihouuding law deer will become so numerous that even still hunting will bo easy enough for those of tho restful teniierament and the heavy foot. " Ed W. Sandys in Outing. New Cycle Saddle Post. An invention for which much is claimed is a pneumatic spring saddle post for bicycles, whicn is designed to absorb or neutralize all jar and shock to bicycle riders when encountering obsta cles or traversing rougn roads. Uy a simple device tho rider Is borne upon a column of air sulliciently compressed to furnish a fixed scat when moving on a smooth roadway and only coming into action when required to save the rider from shock. Tim tension of the com pressed air is adjustable by the ordinary bicycle pump to any weight of rider and the interMKsitioii of a liquid seal gives the device resistance and permanency.
