I amusing adventures while pushing the safety wheel. Amilton feb. 20.-�?o what a the matter with Henry George a Quot he Sall right a the cycler so favorite cry of approval floated on Tho summer like Breeze through Tho corridors of the Princess hotel the other evening. It issued from Tho room where Tho Al Well cycling party from the states was giving its Farewell dinner before sailing the next Day for new York. It seemed strange those cheers away off in that Little Lone spot in the Atlantic Ocean cheers for the Man who had Given big new York City Only live years before the greatest political upheaval it has Ever had who had drawn enthusiastic audiences in every City of the United kingdom and who but recently in australians Metropolis had been listened to by an audience of 7000 people. It seemed stranger still to one who knew that three quarters of the party were republicans and protectionists chief of whom was or. Junius e. Beal of Ann Amor president of the Michigan Republican league. Could it he possible that the bermudians retaliatory Tariff of 5 per cent on their wheels had converted them to free Trade the name of the american free trader was still on their lips when they filed out of the dining room. Or. In s. Higgins presiding officer of the gathering was at once asked by the correspondent for an explanation of this apparent apostasy. Quot we Are As Good republicans As Over a he said. Quot i belong to the Young menus Republican club of Portland me., but i can cheer for Henry George As a cyclist for he is now one of the great Wheeling fraternity. He is the first Man of International celebrity to take to the wheel and besides four or five years ago when we made the fight to get wheelman admitted to Central Park he signed our petition. So i feel this is a time for it was True enough Henry George had been welcomed to the cyclists ranks by a Resolution of congratulation couched in these words Henry George we congratulate you upon your Entrance into the Wheeling fraternity. We believe it jul be of great pineal advantage to yourself and we Hope that your example will do Good to thousand of our Public men who deterred by a foolish prejudice or a fear of Public ridicule now miss the benefits and delights of cycling. Henry George who was struck by nervous prostration in december sailed for the Ber Indas. With his usual determination he applied himself assiduously to the task of recovering his old time vigor. Among the cyclists who visited the islands about that time was William e. Hicks a Well known single tax Man of new York and a wheelman of had scoured Europe on a Cycle. After much persuasion he induced or. George to Essry the bicycle. A i am 52 years old and you can to teach an old dog new tricks a was or. Georges forcible Way of warding off persuasion. A Good substantial wheel of Tho safety pattern was secured and a secluded Road Back of the town of Hamilton was visited for three or four Days till the rudiments a were Learned. Once the motion of self propulsion was acquired or. George became enthusiastic. Ile embraced every occasion for practice and soon did the mount and dismount with ease. All the roads in Bermuda Are capital for cycling being hard and smooth Aud it was not Long before the american philosopher who had been described in the american press a few Days before As having left new York Quot a physical wreck a was seen gayly Bowling Oyer the White roads in a healthful glow of perspiration or with Muscles hard set surmounting some particularly Sharp Hill the next Day after his enthusiastic reception by his wandering co wheelers i Tiai legged or. George to make the longest Straightaway ride on the islands from Ireland Island to Hamilton. Every cyclist who has Ever visited the bermudas remembers this ride a charming succession of Hills and valleys sweeps around unexpected Points on the very Edge of the Blue sea sudden dips into the fragrant Interior where you would imagine yourself too Miles from sea great Long stretches of Sun Check ered Road overhung by Palms and oleanders where the wheel glides along As if on cushions of air quiet sequestered Dales where Fields of easter lilies cover the landscape with fragrant Beds of White the gradual approach to the town of Hamilton and the Rush Down front St., with its stores on one hand and Tho big Steamer at the wharf on the other. It was getting late in the afternoon when the steam tender intrepid put us two ashore near where this Beautiful Road commences on the extreme Northwestern extremity of the Bermuda group of islands. We made ready the machines both Safe-1 ties for the ride to dinner. Or. George Unge ride or. Knickerbockers right on this Quot it does no to seem to me they Are necessary. In a a Little skittish yet about appearing in or. George was realizing what a great Many bicyclists Are surprised to learn that it requires More Servo to appear in Public with uncovered calf than it does to ride the wheel itself Quot take off your jacket and let me have it a was the next command or. George received. Quot what for a he asked. Quot give it to me and you la the jacket was Laid on the ground and carefully folded. Then it was strapped onto the wheel by Means of the Luggage Carrier. Quot you won t use this jacket again till we get to Hamilton. We re touring now and that Stile Way they Aii do in or. George was looking off Over the Hills that Rose and fell around the sound and the Bay. Then he said rather dubiously Quot is All that Between us and dinner a Quot yes and More you cannot Quot do you know this Road never seemed so Long before. How far is it do you think a Quot about 14 or 15 Miles and this Little machine or ust take us Over All of a Well All right. Ail aboard a be shouted and climbed into the Saddle. In a few minutes we were at the Rowboat ferry running from Boaz Island to Somerset. On Board the ferry was a Man who eyed us curiously. Quot ainu to you the same Man i saw learning a few Days ago Back of Hamiltons a he asked or. George. Quot yes i suppose Quot and you re going to ride to Hamilton this evening Quot lie went Fin. A we must get there or miss a a in la be Blower a said the Man As he relapsed into silence Quot if you ainu to Learned faster than my boy the first turn around from the ferry and a Hill that Rose about one foot in la jumped right up in front of us and or. George looked at it sadly and said Quot this is a bigger one than i Nave yet struck. What shall i do a Quot get off and walk or. George had promptly Bung for him a a but that Isnit id promptly s verse of that popular cycling song is this then Corey Hill sit still my heart sit still if this is the Grade of which Yon talk i rather think Well walk. Yes yes yes i rather think Well walk. A Well ill imagine this is Corey Hill he said As he dismounted. About two Miles farther came the descent of Scaur Hill. There is no steeper Hill on the islands. A Sharp turn half Way Down makes it a Little risky. Quot Hadnot you bettor walk this a or. George was asked Quot of your Brake Kola where a you be at the Bottom a hit George got off and deliberately examined his Brake. Just then a Black native came up., Quot any bicycle Ever killed on this Hill. Asked or. George. ,. _ a a Quot none i knows of Boss but they do Tell that a ghost on a Wheeler am sometimes seen Quot must to a pretty Fine ride or he to coming Back to try it again a was the single tax philosophers observation As he swung into the Saddle again. Quot besides a he called out just before the pitch began. Quot in a learning a new beatitude. It goes like this blessed is the cyclist who climbs a Hill for hell have the fun of going Down the other six Quot the sentence Wasny to finished till some minutes later. The curve in Tho Road was reached sooner than expected. The philosophers companion w As coasting faster and got around the turn ahead. As he flashed into sight two horses hitched to a Large Carriage at the foot leaped into the air and then swung half across the roads. Two ladies about to climb in gave yells of terror and fled Back behind a Gate. The horses gave another plunge. Quot get off. Get off a screamed the Driver. A Brake Hud in was the next thing or. George Herain the tumult. His companion got dangerously near the horses before he could dismount. Then he ran Back to see about or. George. He found him leaning up against a Wall still in Tho Saddle. Quot have a hard time stopping a or a Quot of no no. Very easy. Just leaned up Here to just then a coloured auntie stuck her head Over the Wall and shouted Quot Seo Heah Boss. I done see you tear Dat Vine off de Wall. Its All gone fur 20 foot Back Dar. Ainu to you going do nut Liing a bout it a farther Down the six foot coloured Coachman was glaring up the Hill with a firm grip on the whip and evidently waiting for somebody. The Black woman and the Man seemed to be in a conspiracy. Quot Well a said or. George a it basis a mighty sudden combination. Have these often in touring a a sixpence whirred through the air. And one dark face bobbed out of the conspiracy. Quot we re losing time said or. George Quot and dinner lies a Long Way on the other Side of that the Wisdom of welcoming him the night before was very Plain. The Triumph of appetite in such a situation was his Complete endorsement As a cycler. The horses were very near now on the off Side of the Road. The Driver shifted Over to the near Side of the seat dropped the lines and was preparing for an Active Campaign. When or. Georges hand went into his pocket and came out with a Good Cigar. Quot my Friend try this. I think you la find it pretty fair a the second head disappeared from the conspiracy in a Cloud of smoke. A few rods Down tie Road one of the cycler said Quot Lucky i did no to have on that jacket when i struck the Wall. There we Oulen t have been much left of the a by the Way a he went on Quot in a learning lots today. Just found out it does no to pay to quote scripture going Down Hill. Why. Nev i had to choose Between aunties Vino veneered Wall and the horses Quot now you see the value of learning to mount quickly a said the other Quot of we could have got opposite the Driver and then sprung into the Saddle we would now be a mile Down the Road you would be a Cigar ahead and the Driver would be doing the Quot a. I see i observed or. George a that Driver was much like the landlord. He got something for nothing. To sat in his Wagon caused other people lots of trouble and then collected toll or rent or a tax whichever of those my Cigar would be called by political Economy. Of Shakespeare. Shakespeare i what a head you had when you wrote Tongue in the tree Hook in the Man Long Brooks. The Sun was sinking fast now. And no time was lost in philosophizing after the next mount for a Beautiful four mile stretch of Road Lay ahead. Banana Groves through which pick Aninies faces stared to see the wheels go a wound a White cottages door blocked by big Jolly Black women with arms akimbo who chuckled out Quot better Lurry up Dar Boss or you wont get no supper a a has great dogs that uncoiled themselves from the path and too Lazy to bark Lay open eyed while a wheel whizzed by on either Side Uncle Toms innumerable who made up a procession of Heads half bowed and hats half lifted cute Little Darkey girls in neat and comely dress who came out of hidden paths Only to flee away part in fear and part to show their nimble feet a nun Pale faced and Calm who looked strangely White encircled by a Happy throng of children Black As night who All fell Back and looked up at her As the wheels went spinning by. All these rolled past like a Panorama. The exhilaration of the ride was too much for or. George. The night before he had been out to a Kickapoo Indian Patent Medicine Camp. The visit to the. Wigwam must have been fresh in his mind when coming to a Sharpe Grade which to surmounted after a coloured boy in a neighbouring onion Patch had told him to a keep on a Kickin a a he remarked Quot if i keep on learning to kick these pedals ill have to join the Kicka pc08.�?� when this remark was later on conveyed to one of his Best friends he said Quot i never thought the wheel could so thoroughly wean or. George from his old habits. Two weeks ago i would Havo believed that remark impossible coming from Gibbs Hili Lighthouse rising 262 feet above the sea that almost washed the spinning pedals threw a great Shadow Down Over the Road. Quot half Way Home a was the cry As we dashed through it to take the Grade on the other aide. From there in the Way was Over the Beautiful Quot Middle Road. We said Goodby to the sea at Tho next turn and plunged into the Twilight of the silent Woods. In a few minutes the Moon had come out turning the Road into a Lane of Silver. We sped Over the shadows unmindful whether they were header giving substances yielding Only to the inspiration that came from Tho whiffs of supper that mingled with the Dew Laden perfumes of fruit blossoms stole Over the Low Walls in front of the Little houses. It was gently Down Hill and then in All the Way to the famous Quot Royal Palms a the tall sentries that guard the approach to front St., Hamilton. Though it was not Long after 6 of clock the stores had Long been closed and the sidewalk on one Side in front of the shops and the Long covered wharf on Tho other were deserted and silent save when a big Steamer let off steam. To Roll thus noiselessly along the smooth hard Street was to a the prop Letof san Francisco so novel a Way of entering a City that he was Fain to exclaim Quot this pays for All the Hills we be climbed and All the scares we be As we entered the Princess hotel a memorial to his excellency the governor requesting Tho legislature to extend1 a drawback of the duty on bicycles to visiting cyclists was in course of preparation and signatures of americans were being solicited. Quot of course you la sign this or. George now that you Are a wheelman a said one of the signers. A no i done to think i would have the impudence to ask these people to change their Tariff when we maintain the Mckinley act. But Iti Tell you How to Settle this matter easily. Double the Tariff on the protectionists and let the free traders in a boy comes in with a cablegram for or. Goorge from England which says a alarming reports Here of your health. Wire the facts. Some one suggests Quot answer that you have just come in from a 15-mile bicycle or. George smiles puts on his glasses and writes the answer. In a few minutes he is eating a big dinner. So a philosopher Rode to his dinner on a wheel. Queen Victoria Tea. London letter in Rehoboth sunday Herald the Tea consumed by the Royal household in England is always bought at a quaint old fashioned shop in pall mall and has been bought there during the reigns of Queen victorians five predecessors. It costs five shillings and four Pence a Pound and was for a Long while known As Quot Earl Greys this Nobleman having recommended this particular mixture to her majesty. When a dinner is Given at Windsor or Buckingham Palace fish to the extent of �,50 Worth is ordered but for an Ordinary family dinner three kinds of fish Are put on the table Whiting being almost invariably one of them. A sirloin of beef is cooked every Day and is put on the sideboard cold for luncheon. The Queen takes after her dinner one water biscuit and a piece of Cheddar cheese the Prince of Wales eats a hit of Gorgonzola with a crust of Home made bread. The Tea the cheese and tile Royal bed Are always taken along when the Queen travels. Her majesty Swine which is Well known to be incomparable is kept in the cellars of St. James Palace and is sent in Baske Fuls of three dozen to wherever she May be. This being done More for the household and guests than for herself As when alone she drinks Only very weak whiskey and water with her meals by her physicians orders. At banquets however she takes two glasses of Burgundy. The clerk of the Royal kitchens who always carves receives �700 per annul the head chef the same salary and the confectdonerd�3q0 and �250. Lincoln a awful dream. Gen. Logan and his Many superstitions. John c. Calhoun and the ghost of George Washington. Amulets and charms of statesmen and other noted men. Abbington Fob. 28.-�?three-fourths of the great men of our country Are superstitious. Away Down in the souls of Tho most practical statesmen generals and scholars Lurk premonitions which disturb their owners fully As much As those of the wildest imaginations of Tho Plantation Darkey. Speaker c arli ale will never Start on a journey on Friday. Secretary Blaine will not go Back to enter his House after to has quilted it if he has forgotten something and he will walk a few blocks rather than do what to considers unlucky. I know a United states senator from the South who carries a rabbits foot and maj Mckinley carries a Buckeye in his pocket for rheumatism. There Are statesmen hero who believe that a Baths liver is a sure preventive of contagious disease if carried in the left Vest pocket just Over Tho heart and Tho latest superstition in regard to political Luck has just come out in connection with senator Hansbrough selection to Tho United states Senate. Both the Washington Monument and the goddess of Liberty Are mixed up in it and it is the marriage so to speak of these two that brings about the Cor bin Tion which Points the politician on his Road to Fortune. Washington pointed to Calhoun a hand. The Washington Monument is 565 feet High it learns against the Blue sky a great White Shaft and it towers nearly 200 feet above the Capitol dome which stands on a Hill about a mile away. The goddess of Liberty is of Bronze. She weighs 14,000 pounds and she stands erect Oil a great Bronze Globe on the Cap of Tho dome measuring 19va feet from her toes to the tips of the feathers which Crown Lier Beautiful head. She is a woman of wonderful Beauty and As a Pennsylvania Railroad train carries the statesman out of Washington it goes around a part of the City in such a Way that the traveller looking from the windows sees this great figure of the statue of Liberty coming nearer and nearer to the Washington Monument until at last the two Are in direct line with his Eye. And the great god Dess forms a Black Silhouette against Tho pure White of the Monument. This View of the Monument has to be caught on a train going at the rate of 40 Miles an hour. There Are a number of car tracks just at the Point where it becomes visible and a passing freight car will shut it out. It can Only to seen for a second and Only one time perhaps in a dozen trips Public men leaving the capital on missions keep their eyes glued on the windows and if they Are Lucky enough to catch the combination they expect to find their missions successful. If not some of them feel the superstitious dread of failure assured and it is strange How Many times they Are Correct. When Hansbrough went Home to seek for a re election to Congress to kept his Eye glued on Tho goddess from the time Tho train left the station but just As he was about to see her kiss the Monument a freight car rushed in and the moment passed he went to Dakota Aud failed to get his election. The last time he left was to make his fight for the senator ship. But i will let him Tell the Story himself. Said he Quot i watched tile goddess As we left the depot. The tracks were full of freight cars and i feared i should miss it. Senator Farwell was with me and he also kept his eyes towards the Capitol. As we went out of the City freight cars increased and As we neared the Point where the two come together the track was full of them. I kept my Eye on the window however and i just caught a View of the goddess against the Monument Between the cars of a passing train i was leaning Over and watching closely As i did so. And when the two came together i excitedly clapped one hand against the other saying. In be got it and i nearly scared the wits out of an old woman who sat in front of me Aud who must Havo thought i was crazy. Well i went out to Dakota and secured my election. I done to of course believe that the Monument and the goddess had much to do with it. But Charley Farwell who failed to see them went out to Illinois for the same purpose and got left a senator Hansbrough had i am told a dream in connection with this combination Iii which he was told that if the Monument and the goddess came together on his trip lie would to successful. There Are no end of curious dreams described in Tho cloak rooms of the House and Senate. Some of our greatest statesmen Are connected with the stories told. President Lincoln had a dream which he believed prophesied his assassination. He was lying on a lounge in his chamber and when he awoke lie saw his picture in tile looking Glass opposite him. His figure was reflected at full length and his lace Hail two separate and distinct images the tip of the nose of one being about three inches from the tip of the nose of the other. The illusion startled him. Ile got up and looked into tile Glass but As he did so the second face vanished. He Lay Down again went half asleep and then noticed it again Ami this time he saw that one of tile faces was paler than Tho other. He believed that the whole was a foretelling of his death and he said that it made a great impression upon his wife. He tried the Experiment again and again after that hut never succeeded in reproducing the images. Senator Logan was to a certain extent a believer in dreams. He thought it was bad Luck to dream of his Teeth and he dreamt of these just before his adopted daughter Katy died. She was absent at the time Aud just a few Days before her death he said one morning at breakfast Quot i Ain afraid Katy is this impression came from his dream and a few Days later to got a Telegram chronicling her death. Gen. Grant had a number of dreams during his last illness which were reported at the time and which he thought foretold his death. Just before he slipped and fell he had a premonition that he was going to be injured had the same kind of presentiment when he was first inaugurated Here As president. He made personal inquiries about the stands at the Capitol and told the officials that he feared an Accident. He even went so far As to have an array Engineer examine the supports of the immense stand erected on the main East portico. The test was made by allowing five or six Hundred persons to go on it that morning. It was found to be All right and a report to that effect was made to Gen. Grant. As he heard it lie replied Quot i done to doubt but that you Are right but still i fear something will occur there that will to unpleasant to an Accident did occur but it was an Accident to Gran to a father and not to Grant. The old Man stumbled Over a Board which had been insecurely fixed on the Capitol Steps and seriously injured his leg. It was at first thought that the leg was broken but it turned out to be Only a Sovero sprain. Grant did not boar of this until he reached the White House. As he got out of the earring o lie saw Tho Carriage containing his father drive up and though he said lie knew nothing of Tho Accident he asked Quot father were you Hurt much Quot Tho old gentleman informed him that to was not seriously injured. Quot Well i no glad a raid Gen. Grant Quot that it is not worse but i Felt sure something would the most remarkable dream i have Ever heard of. Was that which is said to Nave been related by John c. Calhoun to Bob Toombs and others at just about the time when he was preaching nullification and secession in South Carolina. Calhoun told the Story it is said at a breakfast party. He was observed to be continually brushing Bis right hand in a nervous Way when or. Toombs asked Quot what is the matter with your hand senator does it pain you a or. Calhoun put his hand under the table an annoyed frown came Over his face and then he jerked it quickly out again saying Quot there a nothing the matter with my hand Only i had a Peculiar dream last night which makes me see an indelible Black spot like an Ink Blotch on Tho Hack of it. I know it is an optical illusion but i can t help seeing senator Calhoun did not continue and Bob Toombs asked Quot but what was your dream like senator i am not superstitious but i think Thole is sometimes a great Deal of truth in Calhoun turned a Shade paler and then said Quot i done to object to telling you. It was it seems to me absurd Iii the extreme. I dreamed that i was in my room writing and that i had Given orders that no one should disturb me while i was in Tho busiest part of my work Tho door opened and a visitor entered. To did not speak a word and to my Surprise and indignation he calmly took a Seaton the other Side of the table opposite me. As i looked at him Over the top of my lamp i saw that he was wrapped in a thin cloak which effectually concealed his features. I started by speak when lie broke in in solemn tones with Quot a what Are you writing senator from Smith Carolina Quot strange to say Tho question did not seem impertinent to me. And i replied a i in writing a plan for Tho dissolution of the american Quot As i said this Tho Man wont on a senator from South Carolina will you let me look at your right Quot i started to hold out my hand. Tho figure arose the cloak fell and i behold his face. Gentlemen that face struck to like a Thunder clap it was the face of a dead Man and the features were those of Gen. Washington Ile was dressed in revolutionary costume and Here or. Calhoun paused and Boh Toombs who was very much excited asked a Avell what did he say a or. Calhoun replied a i tried to keep Back my hand but i could not do it i Rose to my feet and extended it to him to grasped it and held it near Tho Light and after looking at it for a moment he said a and senator from South Carolina would you with this right hand sign your name to a Raper dissolving the Union yes a i replied a if needs be i will sign such a Quot Well gentlemen at that moment a Black Blotch appeared on Tho Back of my hand and it frightened me and i said to the ghost what is that a Quot a that a replied he a dropping my hand is the Mark by which Benedict Arnold is known in Tho next Quot and with that he Drew from beneath his cloak a Skeleton and Laid it upon the table. A there a said he a Are the Bones of Isanc Hayne who was Hung at Charleston. Ile gave up ii is life in order to establish the Union. When you put your name to a declaration of dissolution you May As Well Haye Tho Bones of Isaac Hayne before you. He was a South carolinian and so Arn you. But there was no Blotch on his right a with these words the ghost Leit the room and i awoke. I found myself sitting at my table but Tho dream was so vivid that i can still see the Blotch on my Gen. Frank Hatton who was the head of the Post office department in president Arthurs Cabinet is said to have the most Lucky Rabbit foot in Washington. He got it two or three years ago in Chicago and from it probably comes his Success and that of the big paper the Washington Post which he is making so valuable. The Story As told me by one of Gen. Hatton a friends is that this Rabbit foot was sent to him by tile seventh son of a seventh son of a Georgia Darkey who had been befriended in some Way by the Hatton family and that it reached him when he was in Chicago. Ile was at the time though Tho world hardly knew it metaphorically speaking trotting around on his uppers. He had been connected with the Chicago mail and Tho new York press Anil bad last a Small Fortune. He Hadnot a cent in his pocket and though lie lived Well it was Only through the Faith of one of his friends who keeps a big hotel in Chicago and who told Hatton to keep his family there As Long is lie pleased and to look around until something turned up. Tho general did not think much of the Rabbit foot but lie put it Iii his pocket Aud went out walked up and Down the Street along the Banks of the Lake and thought. The rabbits foot and Tho Darkey turned his mind toward Tim South and he finally got to thinking about Washington and Washington newspapers. The More lie thought about the Field the better he liked it and Fie finally put his hand in his pocket grabbed the Paw of the Rabbit and said a a in la Ouy the Washington he went Back to Tho hotel and told his wife that he had decided to buy the Washington Post and move to Washington. Mrs. Hatton possesses considerable common sense Ann she said Quot but Frank How Are you going to buy it you have no Money and the Post is a costly Quot ill borrow the Money a a said , and with that he wont out on the Street called on a Friend and borrowed enough to take him to Washington and to keep him there for Thuc week or two necessary Tor his negotiations. Tho amount however was so Small that when he got to Washington he stopped with a Friend rather than to put up at the Best hotel in the City As was his custom. Nows the Post was owned by or. Stilson Hutchins and lie considered it w Orth somewhere about 300,000. Gen. Hatton put on a bold air and called on Hutchins. He talked As though he own Ned millions but Hutchins had a sneaking idea that be dirt not own anything. Nevertheless he discussed the situation with him and they bickered Over terms from Day to Day until Hutchins got his figures Down to somewhere near 200.000. At this time Gen. Hatton met sex Congress Man Beriah Wilkins who was then about to leave the House at the close of his term and did not know whore to go nor what to do. Hatton found How he was situated and meeting him on Tho Street proposed that to lat tues ppe Aroi 8__ idea hut he said that tie Hadnot a great Deal reel prop go in with him Aud that they buy the Post together. Wilkins appeared to like the of Money and that lie would have to go slow. A Well come on and see Hutchins about it Hatton. And the two went together to Stilson Hutchins office there the bickering began again and at last Hutchins said a now or. Hatton you and i have been talking Over this thing for several Days and it seems to me there s too much talk and too Little Money. Now i want you to either put up or shut up. Ill Tell you just what i will do and you can take it or leave it. Ill sell you the Washington Post for 210.000, on certain terms and i want $10,000 Cash by tomorrow at 12 of clock to bind the with that lie looked at Hatton. The face of the sex postmaster general was like that no the Sphinx. His Iron jaw became More like Iron than Ever. Ile looked Hutchins in the Eye and with nothing hut Tho Rabbit foot in his pocket be said coolly Quot Pii take it. Write out your terms and sign your As lie did this Beriah Wilkins turned Paie. Ile did not know what to make of it and As the two left together lie said timidly. To Hatton a but Frank where Are you going to get that is 0,000? i can raise some Money but i can to get Sio too Here in Washington on rim e hours Quot who in Blank asked you to get it a rejoined Hatton. And with that tie shut Bis jaws together and told Wilkins not to worry he would attend to it. This was in Tim evening lie went Home that night and slept like a top. Tho next morning he called upon a banker Friend of his Here at about to o clock. To met him in his private office and told him that he wanted to buy Tho Post Aud that he had to out up si0,000 by noon and that he wanted him to lend him the $10,000. To then went Over the situation and showed his Friend How the Post could be made to pay and the capitalist grunted and listened lie continued to listen and continued to Grunt until Hatton got through and then walked with him to the door without giving an answer. Ile followed Hatton out to the cab in which lie had come to his office and As Hatton got in still not knowing How the thing was going to turn out lie stepped in after him and told the cabby to drive to Riggs Bank. Here the two got out and went in and the capitalist gave Frank Hatton a Check for $10,000. Hatton presented it and the Money was counted out to him. As soon As lie had seen that it was Correct he handed it Hack and asked for a certified Check for . It was Given him and to folded it in and put it into his pants pocket beside the Rabbit foot. He then drove to the office of the Washington Post. And reached there within five minutes of 12. He stepped into or. Hutchins room and Stilson Hutchins greeted him with the re Mark. Which he judged to be facetious Quot Well said be with a laugh Quot i suppose you be come to buy Tho a yes i have Quot replied Gen. Hatton Quot and i la take it Quot indeed a said Hutchins Quot hut you remember that the contract Calls for $10,000in Cash before noon Quot of. That All right a said Hatton As though $lo.000 was nothing to Hirn. Quot Here a my certified Check for the Hutchins was astounded but he took the chock and with that he lost the Post. The remainder of Tho Purchase Money is now almost paid. The paper is making Money hand Over fist and Beriah Wilkins and Frank Hatton Aye growing Rich. Their Success is of course due to their abilities. But i done to believe you could get that rabbits foot for its weight in Gold. Frank g. Carpenter. The magic Dart. It is accomplished by a Little piece of thread. Take an Ordinary sewing Needle of medium size with a Good Sharp Point. Stand at three paces Distant from a door or wooden partition and. Holding the Needle Between your Finger and thumb try by throwing it As strongly As you can to make it stick in the Woodwork. Try As you will however great your skill or unwearied your perseverance you will never succeed. Now. However pass through the Eye of Tho Needle a simple bit of thread and try again. You will succeed every time in planting the Needle Iii the door or piece of Woodwork you have chosen for your target. Tim Little hit of thread you Havo added has transformed your Needle into an effective Dart and makes its Point almost As a matter of course strike and penetrate the object against which it is thrown.

On every pleasant afternoon shortly before 4.30 o clock a Man of portly Mien and striking aspect joins Tho throng of Broadway promenades at 23d St. And saunters leisurely up 42d, says the world. He is a Well known actor at one of the local theatres and his pictures Are for Sale at All of Tho to Beatrich photographers shops. The most striking feature of these counterfeit presentment is the marvellous manner in which his Coats fit him. Be they sack frock or cutaway. A Many a Corset. Not a crease or wrinkle Mars their out line Ann the actor in the majority of bus photographic poses strongly resembles a fashion plate that has dropped out of some convenient album. Ills Gracile symmetry is due Tell it not in Gath to corsets. Nor is he the Only Man in the City who is addicted to the same aesthetic practice. A grotesque Little Frenchman who is the head and front of a dressmaking establishment in West 14th St., is the authority for Tho statement that Many score of the male persuasion who stray through the pleasant pastures of society Ana haunt Tho Shady nooks of Clubland Wear the Canvas and whalebone. Jury trials in France. How the procedure differs from that in English and american courts. Murray Magazine contrary to English practice the prisoner himself is closely Cross examined by the presiding judge called president previously during his imprisonment Overy Effort Bas been made to draw a confession from Bim even by placing in his cell a fellow jailbird As spy in technical Slang called Mouton who treacherously tries to win his Confidence. Such preceding would snoek British ideas of fair play anything like treachery being repulsive to the English mind. The Public examination May. However have the advantage of allowing Tho prisoner to Tell his own Story which if to be innocent May have a stamp of truth Likely to influence Tho jury on the other hand through nervousness or stupidity to May commit himself irremediable. But the safety of the prisoner depends chiefly on his counsel not so much As regards logical examination of what can be brought Forward for his defence. But according to the degree of his fervid eloquence Ami his knowledge of the Best Way of appealing to the feelings of Tho jury. Tho greater number of the jury men belong to Tho class of Netty tradesmen half educated hut having fait Leur rhe Tonque Iii some provincial school and retaining from such studies a sort of vague pompous sentimentalism easily influenced by big words and dramatic action. In the Days of the celebrated Lachaud it was said that lie always got an acquittal for a prisoner however guilty to might he. For lie knew How to work upon the Quot sensibility of the jury. In France it is not necessary that All should agree in the verdict a majority of votes is sufficient and the two or three jury men blessed with Cool Heads and Good common sense who May take a Clearview of Tho Case Are overruled by the others who Between the eloquence of the prosecution and that. Of tie defence get into that state of bewilderment candidly expressed by Henri quatre on a similar occasion and with him Liev would willingly exclaim Quot holy St. Gris they Are both in the right a the defence has the last word and then the sorely troubled jury retires to decide As to the life or death of some poor wretch who has been adorned with imaginary Good qualities and represented As having acted under irresistible circumstances by the eloquent Man who Speaks so beautifully to whom they have just listened. What is to be done he has been proved to have murdered some one Iii cold blood and with horrible cruelty but then he is so interesting. Poor fellow bring Iii Quot extenuate circumstances a which will Send him to Noumea. The very thing lie wishes for and the jury president or Foreman according to established form dramatically laying his hand on his heart As he solemnly proclaims a on my Honor and my conscience be fax god and before men by a majority of a Many votes the jury declares yes the prisoner is guilty but with extenuating their scruples Are thus satisfied and the interesting individual is sent to a charming country and delightful climate to begin life anew envied by All his comrades in crime. Who will immediately look out for a favourable Opportunity to Cut the threat of some old lady and thus secure the same advantage. Such is the present Stato of judicial ail airs in France for which a remedy is sought not too soon i pennies at a discount. Chicago Tribune Quot i was surprised today when i handed a newsboy five cents and received four coppers in return a said James s.

St. Louis Globe Democrat few people in this part of the country have any idea of Tho difficulty of finding a mine. A mail who follows it for a living must thoroughly understand the nature of the District in which he is. Different sorts of mines Are found in different ways. If you Are in a Placer District of course you have nothing to do except to walk along a Stream with a pan in your hand and test the soil by washing till you come to pay dirt. But if you know nothing about it you will waste a Groat Deal of time testing dirt that an experienced prospector would know at glance contained no cold. In a True assure or Contact District tile experienced prospector will walk along the Bottom of Tho mulches looking for Quot floats a although lie expects to find Tho mine far up the Mountain Side. The float is vein matter which Breaks off with the settling of the Mountain and Rolls Down its sides. The prospector who is acquainted with the District knows it at once and when he finds it climbs Tho Mountain till lie ascertains where it came from a Tenderfoot would never know what it was. But sometimes a Tenderfoot strikes it Richer than anybody. The silent Friend mine at Pitkin col., which showed a nine foot vein of solid Galena at the grass roots was found by two swede Railroad hand who did no to know what the Mineral was and Way three fourths of their interest Bufo. They discovered its value. Experienced prospectors had been Over the ground thousands of times but there were no external evidences of the Lead. The swedes found it by rolling a Bowlder Down the Mountain. The Mineral cropped out from the place where the Bowlder had been. The great Carbonate Fields of Leadville were found by a Man who was thought insane for sinking a Shaft where there were no external evidences of Mineral. He found the Carbonate in a Quot Blanket vein a lying level As a Sheet of water a great distance below the ground. A regular prospector would never have sunk a Shaft there. But where one Tenderfoot strikes it that Way a Hundred thousand get broke and go Home an impressive spectacle. New York world the spectacle of a fire engine Rushing through the Street at night with two big horses galloping wildly Aud the Sparks flying alow and aloft is impressive even when the engines Are of average size. The new three horse engines make such a Clatter and uproar that they drown the noise of the old ones. A few nights since when Tho wind was blowing a Gale an engine with three big powerful fire horses harnessed abreast went through upper Broadway at a Pace which suggested a runaway it every plunge. The horses which look so solid Bony and muscular in with tie ease Aud Grace of cats. They seemed to to fired with life and their massive hoofs boat a Tattoo on the pavement which a could be heard Quarter of a mile away. A train of spark ran out from Between the wheels Ami puffs of spark Laden smoke were blown High in the air. The Driver s arms were bared and he sawed on tile reins with All his strength in an apparent Effort to get control of the horses. It was a perfect picture of a runaway hut when Tho fire plug a reached a shout of command arose from the Driver which could be heard above the Din. And the three horses braced their fore feet and almost Slid along in their efforts to atop at the word. They were perfectly trained and absolutely under control of the Driver but very few men would have Given a Nickel for the fireman a chances behind the galloping horses when they glanced at him. A i am a sex gov. Foster makes a declaration of principles As to his prospective course in the Treasury. New York Fob. 23.�?ex-gov. Charles Foster passed most of the Day yesterday at his room in Tho fifth Avenue hotel where he received Many congratulatory messages. It was Learned last night that or. Foster would remain in this City until after in confirmation by the Senate. That will take place it is believed tomorrow. He will then go to Washington take the oath of office and appoint an acting Secretary after which he will go to Ohio for to Days or two weeks in ureter to arrange his business affairs and prepare for his residence at the capital. When asked yesterday what Bis policy would be on Tim Silver question. Gov. Foster said Quot my position on that matter has already been pretty accurately defined. I do not think that the a limited coinage of Silver would be practicable at All whether the Stiver to to coined were Tho product of our own mines or not. I am a bimetal list however. And i Clove in maintaining the ratio of Gold and Silver so that a parity in Tho value of the two metals May to brought about. This can to Hest accomplished it seems to to by the methods at present adopted until Tho world is ready to undertake sovino movement by which All civilized countries will recognize both metals. A while i do pot believe in the unlimited coinage of Silver i have Felt that the present rate of coinage is not too great for the needs of Tho country. This is a growing country and Tho Law in Force at present providing for the coinage of 60,000,000 in Silver a year or what Moon too ounces would about amount to does not go too far. In my or. Foster indicated that ins policy would to strictly within the lines Laid Down by the administration thus far. And that in the management of Tho finances of the country if he were confirmed his course would he entirely conservative. In the White House mail some of the titles conferred by the president s correspondents a the godhead King sends instructions. Some of the letters which the president receives suffer delay from insufficiency of address says the Bun. Postal clerks Are kept Busy deciphering the addresses on the senator Hearst dead. Was one of the Early Gold diggers in far West made and fortunes in bold spa in a Lions. At death was largest mine and land owner in the world. Fob. 28.�?senator Hearst a to an end with hts death be in on to presidents mail. One letter was addressed to Quot Bengerman Harson it was mailed at Altoona. Penn., and the postmaster there sent it to Washington Penn. Thoro Quot try pre. Harrison ilc., was a crib bled on Tho envelope and the letter found its Das tin at Ion in the executive mansion. Another letter received in the same mail was addressed to Quot Hon Erble president b. Hanson a these Are unworthy specimens of Tho Way the casual correspondent abuses tile spelling of the president name. Or. Tibbott bus made a collection of strange envelopes received at Tho executive Man Sion. They till a Large drawer in his desk. From Kansas City kau., came a contribution originally addressed to Quot or. Hirron,�?T1 but the address was altered to read or. He re on i. R. White lion million nity what p. Ii. Stood for was not developed till even by the Content of the letter. Possibly it was an americanization of Tho Queen of England a Quot a. a a president due irreverent correspondent in a Small. A Vuja to town in Missouri addressed a letter to Quot his Royal jigs Tho president a Aud another missourian addressed a communication intended for Tho chief executive simply Quot Washington d. C., Tho White Tho contents of Tho envelopes Are quite As amusing. Demands for office and begging letters Are the most numerous. A tin Box came to Tho president a few Days ago from a Church in fort Worth Tex. It was labelled Quot Loo dimes before aug. 2,�?� and the president was expected to drop to cent pieces in at stated intervals for the Good of the cause. A bottle Cross. An amusing Holiday trick that requires no tools. Our illustration shows at a glance that five tilings Are needed to perform tiffs trick and five pairs of hands Are also necessary to execute it properly. It is needless to say that these hands must be exceedingly steady adds the Post dispatch. First the water carafe is placed upon a table. Three of the spectators will then each take a wine Glass. The glasses must be All alike and be arranged symmetrically around the Edge of the bottle As shown in our sketch. A fourth assistant takes a wine bottle filled about one fourth of water and places it on the edges of the three glasses. By pressing on Hie bottles he can readily ascertain if the weight is great enough to balance it. The other three hold fast their glasses while a fifth person pours enough water through a funnel into the bottle to establish a counterbalance. When this is accomplished the hands Are carefully withdrawn from the glasses Aud the bottle and the trick May he displayed before an admiring crowd. Sympathy. Harper s Bazar a what a become of Ebenezer Mudd a a the s Iii new York doing the rare work. He is making quite a name for Quot Well. I Don c blame him. The one his father gave him is Washington Long illness came at 9.10 tonight. For Many weeks it has been apparent that a fatal termination was inevitable and his Wile and son Havo been with him constantly. His illness has greatly puzzled his physicians having been attributed to cancer of the stomach and cancer of the Colon but it is agreed that the immediate cause of death was Ura Rnic poisoning. He was taken ill Inch Carto during last August while on ids Way East to attend the present session of Congress. At new York he a attended by or. Ward daring his stay at the Brunswick. Though Able to lie removed to Washington he has taken no part in the sea ions of the Senate having been confined to his Lions Oner since i arrival Here. George hear t was a native of Franklin county Missouri. His rather. William g. Hearse was born Iii South Carolina but was of scotch descent Ami As it ally As 1608 moved West of the Mississippi to the territory after my included in lie state of Missouri but a which was then the extreme i Ruffler. Here in 1817, to married Elizabeth Collins a Young girl of English family Whoso lather was also a Pioneer and the owner of a considerable tract of land. Tho Young coup a met with the usual reverse Ana amidships attendant upon Frontier life Aud it was just of Farr a period of unusual Vici Ai tildes. When the Young married people had gone with their parents to Texas Only to meet with sickness Arluro and toss and to return again to farming and Stock raising in their native state that George Hearst a Horn sept. 3.1320. Bred to the homely and exacting duties of life in a Western farm the boy enjoyed few advantages and received Only the most indifferent education in a country school. Missouri was at that Day the principal mining state of the Union and when George grew to manhood he found occupation Iii Trie Lead Aud Copper mines near his Home. When to was 29 years old in 1849, tile California Gold fever raged throughout the land. The Young Man resisted the temptation and allurements of the Gold Fields As Long a lie coaids but Iii March. 1850, a company of Young men was formed in his immediate neighbourhood who were resolved to join the Gold Coker on tile fact Fie slope and when they started out on Tho Long Overland trip George Learst was one of Tho number finding partial justification for the venture on tin score of his ill health which he fancied might to improved by the journey. The party was five mooch in crossing Tho Plains and mountains and in october 1850, reached Placerville Al Dorado county where its members at once joined the eager throngs of toilers in Tho Placer claims. Indifferent Success attended the first mining venture but George Hearst persevered. Fourteen months later he was rewarded by the discovery of a Rich Quartz ledge. This was something substantial and out of their carefully hoarded savings lie and his part tiers set up a Tine stamp Mill one of the first Ever put up in the state of California. His financial career after this was so like that of Tho typical Miner of 49 that it reads almost like Mark Twain or Brot Harte. The Money that was so easily acquired in Quartz mining was sunk with equal facility. Swept away by a single hapless venture in the general merchandise line in Sacramento. A year later we find him Back on the River bar industriously washing out Gold but the pincers were by this time very nearly exhausted mid Iii 1858, six year after lie reached the Golden state to was almost a penniless Man. To had $40 in his pocket not More than Tho Price of a sack of potatoes Iii those times but with this capital he went tip to Nevada county bought a pick and resumed Quartz mining h or three years he worked there with considerable Success and then i Genius led him to Tho Washoe Silver Fields. He afterwards mined on the Comstock and in other Rich Fields with such Good Success that at Tho close of the War to had amassed $1,000,000. Even this Largo sum was not sufficient to make i Ortuno secure in the unstable values of that period and the financial disturbances that followed and a series of disaster left him again a comparatively poor Man a year later. In tiffs crisis he for Tho first time turned to real estate speculation and realized so Large a sum during Tho real estate Boom of 1866 in san Francisco that he was enabled to organize the great firm of Hearst amp Tov is which has now for Many years been the leading mining firm in the world owning and operating Many of the richest mines in America All Tho Way from Montana to Mexico. The wealth of tiffs Trio of capitalists cannot easily be estimated for the reason that their interest Are so widespread und so diversified that no outsider can form any adequate idea of their values. It May be safely said however that at Tho time of his death or. Hearst was the largest mine and land owner in tie world. He never held office but twice being a member of the Stato legislature in 1865-6, and being elected to Tho United state Senate a Little More than Throe years ago. He was a Democrat in politic. Socially Tho hearts have Long Beld a leading place in California and especially in san Francisco society. Mrs. Llo Arst who was miss Phoebe appear son before her marriage and who belongs to an old Virginia family is a Beautiful and cultivated woman. She Bas Long been famous for her charming dinners and receptions and for her Liberal patronage of literature and Art. About Tho Date of his election to Tho United states Senate or.

When he graduated from College Soma seven years ago he found his father embarrassed with the newly acquired ownership of the old san Francisco examiner a Sheet which enjoyed Hie Peculiar distinction of being the Only democratic daily in a democratic City Aud of being nevertheless very unpopular and very poorly patronized. This encumbrance Young Hearst took off from his father s hands and without any previous experience in journalism he Bas succeeded in giving the newspaper its present High position.
