The deacon had l*v»n away on a visit for some time and when he returned he found about a dozen prospectors had jumped his ranch and were sink ing shafts in all directions.

For a long time it has been known that a large body of the choieeet land near Fort Pierre has been covered up and held by squatters, sad it has just leaked out that it is their intention to vacate the lands which are situated near the mouth of the Bad river and allow the state land eommismoner to locate the land in behalf of the «U»te. Thfci truet of land comprises both bottom and beuc-h land and rises up in beautiful terraces until the table land is reached, -where tHe limit to vision is unbounded, and when platted oat and sold by the state will afford sufficient revenue to build all the atate buildings. The scheme would not have leaked out had it not been from the fact that about twenty five of the best busmcas men of Pierre, the capital Ixxuners, bankers and real eatale runt lera, about two months sgo startod up the town of Stanley and un dertook to steal the oounty seat away from Fort Pierre and not having to ex ceed fifteen legal votern in Stanley, they took about 100 rounders from the city of Pierre and by the liberal use of money affected a combination with the buitcrw from the regular convention and nearly captured the county seat. They only lacked 15 votes. The people of Fort Pierre are exceedingly wrathy and will do all they can- to locate the capital on the west aide of the river on ground selected as above described.

"Do you know that nn old nhoe is a food index to the character of the per son who wore it?" said a salesman in a New York shoe store the other day. "I have been in the busineg* dose on to twenty years, and have observed the matter closely. A person who wears a sole and heel on the outside toward the rear is of a passionate tempera ment. one who i« generally enthusias tic, and one who doe?, whatever he un dertakes in a rapid manner. Such per sons 1 have found are not successful in accumulating mosey. An evenly worn shoe indicates an easy going per son. But if the tots i i,d is badly wore, look out for the w«arer. Shady* people and mostly all criminals wear out the toes of their shoe*first. Why? Because, as a rule, "crooks' glide along on their toes. A person of little ambi tion wears a shoe on the Inside.

In tfm wild frontier days runaway matches were of common occurrence ia our land. Some short time since a staid St Louis matron described how she ran away at sixteen and swam on horseback across a swollen ford to meet her present husband. One of the funniest runaway matches *—perhaps, in this case, it might bet ter be described as a stay-at-home match—is one that took place near the Iron mountain. The suitor was eo objectionable to the parents that they actually locked the young lady in a cellar—at a short distance from the house—which fortunately had some small barred windows, with tho ground hollowed out around them to give light. The lover, a fellow of wit as well at spirit seenwsd the sendees of a preach er, and standing outside the cellar tbt necessary re»j»onses were made aad the pair married, she within, be with out When ail formalities were got through, he walked boldly ia the front door and demanded his wife.

Fnpolamablo clay electrodes, Opnnected with a delicate galvanome ter, were applied to various parts— hands, finger*, feet, toes, ear and back, and, after compensation of any cur renin which occurred during the rest, the effects of mental stimulation were noted.* Light tickling with a brush caused, after a few seconds' period of latency, a gradually Increasing strong deflection. Hot water has a like ef fect, cold or the pain from Ji needlo prick a lees. Sound, light taste, and smell stimuli act similarly. If the eye» have been closed some time, mere opening of them causes a considerable deflection from the skin of the hand. It is remarkable that these skki cur rants also arise when the sensations are merely imagined. Mental effort produces a current varying ith the amount If a jierson is in Intense ex pectation the galvanometer mirror makes Irregular oscillation*.
