A. IfwERFOOT'3 ACCOUNT OF HI3 i FIRST TRIP PROSPECTING.. XloMat fiomine of UonndleM Wealth tond 2Iagvlflcmt Scenery Featl by Ilospltabl Indian III Claim to tt Country A Bml Indian and Family. On tho morning of July 0 we left Douglas City on tho favorite and fart sailing canoe J I ink, dpt. Jim (both well anil favorably known In Alaskan waters), for a prospecting trip in Lynn canal. Aa tba day was fine and the wiml fair, tbe sail through. Gabtineauz, Htpbens' paHxago and Lynn canal was de lightful, each one is dotted with little Island:!, rising from the water's edge to a height of a thousand feet or more, whilst tbe mountains on the main land are thousands of feet high, with ragged peaks not unlike tbe teeth of ait old fashioned cross cut saw, tbe spaces between tbe peaks being filled with glaciers and the jx-aku themselves aro covered with perjx-'tunl snow. As I am a cbee-cbaco in tbe eountry (that's wb.it my chains call me), everything appeared wild and pictur esque, and as I burst out in exclamations of admiration every once in a while at tbe S'-enery, they would Bay, "Oh, shucks I that ain't nothing; you had ought to see the scenerv on tho Yukon." 2)r Urst night we camped on a creek about ttu'i' miles from Juneau, where our native told us there was some quartz. We stayed aud examined it, but did not think enough of it to locate it. The next day we arrived at our native's illahee (as be called it), situated at Lynn Canal, and distant about fojfty miles from Juneau. It is a beautiful bay, Ailed with many islands and teeming with fish, from the mighty whale to the tiny her ring, while th) woods aud mountains are full of game the small and harmless ground hog and tbe large and fierce brown bear. Tbo Indian who accompanied us is a fine specimen of his race, as be stands over six feet in his bare feet, and weighs over 200 pound. He is a Mormon in proclivities, for he has a number of wives, who appear well satisfied with him as their lord aud master, and I could see no sign of tbe green eyed monster. He is a bear hunter by occupation, an enthusiast in that line, and many were the stories and bair breadth escapes be re lated. I can well believe be is a good hunter, as bis larder is well stocked with fish, flesh and fowl; bis wives were brown, fat and greasy; bis dogs, of which he had seven, were all in splendid condition, and that is more than can be said of most Indian dogs. Ho told us the peculiarities of ench, and nhowed us tho many wounds they h.i. re ceived in the encounters with bruin. He also showed us tho hole where he buried tho bears' heads, and there must have been twenty skulls iu it. I inquired of bini why ho did so, and ho told me, "Bear all same In dian; by and by be go to the happy rooting ground." As a host be is a prince, and right royally he treated us to all kinds of game put up in Indian style. We hod smoked porcupine put . up in seal oil, and one of our crowd who pre tends to bo an epicuro said it was delicious; there wero seal's flippers cooked in grease, which were not dissimilar to pig's feet; baked ground bog stuffed with mussels, ivljich gavo tho hog a fishy taste and im proved the flavor of the mussels. His bear's bead cheese was actually immense, and then wero many more dishes too numerous to mention. He showed many kinds of roots and herbs good for food and medicine. He also showed his canned halibut, hooks and all of his dancing outfit. His headgear and mask cost Lira ?50; it was wild and uncouth, and was carved out of yellow cedar. It bad a large nose like a parrot's beak, eyes made of mother of pearl, a mouth which contained - the teeth of the only si wash doctor on Noah's ark, ears made from the hide of the ichthyo saurus, bair made from the sea lion's whis kers. His bunting knife had some unique carving on the baudle that represented some f Indian myth the bears were afraid of. As a Is prospector, like many more following that vocation, I do not consider him a success, as we examined mauy places that he showed us, Lut could seo nothing except whito and bar ren quartz. He had other places he wanted to show us, and we would have gone with him, but one of the jwirty hod an acute attack of iuflaui- matory rheumatism. The native told us tho extent of his territory, and said he expected white men prosjiecting on his domain to pay him fi.jO per day for bis knowledge and services. He said tbe land and water be longed to hi" ancestors from time immemo rial, and he inquired if white men owning a similar amount of land would allow every body on it. His argument brought forcibly to our mind the '"bloated bondholders" of America and the land question that is now agitating tho British empire, where lords, dukes and earls are holding hundreds of miles square that their ancestors acquired by might, while he claims bis by right. The only difference I see between them and this Indian is that ho will be glad to see you hunt or fish on his supposed eountry, while if you caught a trout in their waters or shot a pheasant in their woods yeu would get about live years. So we parted with feelings of regret, prom ising to return if the Hoonah springs cured "" our companion. We ran across two men looking for fresh water. "Just think' of it!" my chums exclaimed, "hunting for fresh water in Alaska I They must be pilgrims like yourself.'' The next camp we made was on a large stream, where we found an Indian and bis family on a barren point, exposed to the elements from all points. He bad to carry water nearly half a mile. We won dered hy he built on such a bleak plaee but be was not communicative, so we con cluded be bad committed some depredation on bis fellow Indians, and was continually on tbe lookout, as a foe could not approach him without being seen. Tbe next day we traveled against a bead ' virul ml n. terrible rain, and after ret- drenched to the skin we camped.

Ever since men began to be civilized there bar been theorists who bave made a living and some of then a very handsome living by professing to impart some wonderful secret which should increase the beauty or prolong the youth or strengthen tbo memory of the credulous disciple. All men and some women hke to bo thought young and beauti f ul ; and tho advantage of being able to say at any moment when Queen Elizabeth died and who stabbed Eglon, king of Moab, is obvious to tbo meanest capacity. Teachers of memory will always find occupation, but those who think of employing them should think twice. There were distinguished pro fessors of the art in antiquity, Greeks for tho most part, omniscient and shifty, and ready, as Juvenal says, to undertake anything. from rope dancing to scaling heaven, for a consideration. Metrodorus, it is said by I'Jiny, could repeat literally anything that bo had once beard. Like astrology and divination, mnemonics has just that sufllcieut air of relation to reality which is sure to mislead the unthinking and the uncritical; and with tho revival of learning in tbe Four teenth and Fifteenth centuries this fantastic science came again into notice. It has never quite lapsed into obscurity since that time. It is to be Loped that not many readers can recall, as part of their personal exjwrience, the career of M. Oouraud, who created an excitement in this country forty years ago with bis system of "phreno-muemotechny," the idea of which was an application of tho Arabic numerals. The syllables, se, te, ne, me, re, le, she, ke, fe, pe, represented the nine figures and the cipher, and by the combina tion of these syllables tho mind was to lay hold at once on any fact, or date, or passage, and reproduce it without error. Part of tbe charm in all these systems lies In the abracadabra, the unintelligibility of a formula which affects tho mind of the neophyte with its cadence, just as the old woman found that it did her good all over to hear that "sweet word, Mesopotamia." Tbe formula and tho readiness to believe in any thing that promises to do away with the ob durate law of hard work will account for much ; but how does it happen that no one of tbo thousands who have wasted substance and time on tbeso hollow deceits bos left a record of bis experience! That experience has Leon, by tbe nature of tho case, uniform. No man has ever yet been found w ho suc ceeded in acquiring strength of memory by any other process than continuul practice and effort. Those who seem to improve by following a system of mnemonics, improve only because they then first seriously givo tho memory work to do. The law for this is tbe same as tho law for every power, mental or physical, as well as for every organ: givo it exercise and practice, and it improves and gathers strength ; neglect it, aud the organ or the power dies. Frank Leslie's Marrying tUe House Servant. Apropos of matrimony, a curious mania ecms to havo broken out among tho scions of our first families to marry tho servants of tho house. There bave been half a dozen coses during the lost twelve months of these model examples of dudedom converting their mothers' waiting maids into their mothers daughters-in-law. Only a few weeks since another case of this kind was reported. In this instance tho fortunate brido was tbe French maid of one of the best known women in society in New Vork. The son, be it said to his credit, although ho is a de cidedly sappy young fellow, professes an honest affection for bis wife, and has posi tively refused to allow bis family to cast her off. Between tho fear of public scandal and tho acceptance of a daughter-in-law of such humble station the family have not hesitated. They havo accepted the situation with the understanding that tho son and bis bride shall travel about tho world for a year or two, until the odor of her inferior condition has blown away, when they may receive her on sufferance. As a rule these marriages do not end 6o happily. The brido is generally Lought off or forced it:to accepting a separation and divorce. Indeed, there was quite a row early last winter, occasioned by tho refusal of a well known and opulent family of Knickerbocker antecedents to jay a servant girl, whom their son had married, the amount promised her iu consideration of her permitting bun to be divorced. The oddest part about tbc3e curiqys matches is tbe ease with which they are kept quiet. If the daughter of the house runs away with the coachman, tho papers will, to a moral cer tainty, bo full of it; but I suppose a superior interest attaches to the eccentricities of the fair sex. It is such a common thing for a dude to make a fool of himself that when be does it no ono gives it any particular atten tion. Cor. Pittsburg Bulletin. A Hoy with Two Hearts. The patient was again anesthetized. An incision was made in the neck over the tumor. Tho cartilaginous cyst was corru gated slightly and resisted the knife strongly. Tho surgeon had to proceed with the greatest caution and be on the lookout for the slight est puncture of the artery. An opening woa finally made through the cartilage, and it was extended for about three inches. The hemorrhage was only ordinary. Within this hard sac there was a 6 mall body covered with a membrane. Dr. Wyetb had never seen anything like it before. To facilitate further cutting, as well as to find out what the body was, a strong light was reflected into the cavity. The surgeon glanced within and turned away in dismay. And well he might, for there iu full view was a miniature heart beating with great energy. The venous and arterial systems wero perfectly developed, though on a small scale, and as far as could be judged extended through tho entire body independent entirely of the heart in the chest. Dr. Wyeth did not cut any further, though he would certainly liked to bavo seen what effect the removal of the auxiliary heart would have had on the patient. A photograph was taken of the heart with a detective camera before closing tho wound. In examining tbo cartilage it was discov ered that the irregular formations of its sur face was due to the existence of small ribs, which nature bad thrown around the heart for protection. The wound was sewed with silk, and beyond a slight Inflammation has not given any trouble. Tbe swelling in the neck, of course, can never be reduced, bat there is nothing to indicate that it will ever provo detrimental to the boy's health. New Vork Cor. Globe-Democrat.

A VUlt to St. Mark's Church Drifting- la Gondola Down tho Grand Canal A Moonlight gcen Mosle, Dark Eyed Maidens and Flowers. I am soon down stairs for a simple break fas of coffee, rolls and omelet, and out on my way to tbe Piazza. As I pass over tho Pome della Paglia, tbo gondoliers are clean ing their boats and polishing the brass mountings aud iron prows till they glisten in the sun like refined gold and silver. In tbe Piazza all is life, and yet that dreamy sort of life make Venice so idyllic; the shopi are all open, and tbe cafes serving to natives and tourists tbe morning meaL The windows in tho arcade flash out their brilliant setting of Jowelry, gems, lovely Venetian glass, rare curios and stuff from tbo east, like n price less girdle around this matchless square of Kan Marco. Of course, my first duty aud pleasure, as it is my noonday aud closing one, is to enter St. Mark's church ; to wander about within the aisles and arches ; to sit for an hour in some secluded corner, and contemplate its marvelous architecture of piers, of vaults, of domes; its almost inconceivable riches of alabaster, of marbles, of iorphyry, bronzes, gold, silver, statuary aud mosaics; to drink it all in, and nil the soul with calm and satis fying delight, and to return again and again and again day by day to the same feast. more like a dream than a reality. From the Piazetta at the Molo a gondola takes mo along tbe grand canal to visit the manufactories of mosaics, glass, furniture and delightful Venetian iron work. Noon time comes all too soon, and so leaving my gondolier at the Rialto, with tho admonition to bo at the Molo at 4 o'clock, I pass down through tbe Merceria and make my way on to the Piazza, stopping at ono of the little shotw iu a side calle to get a horn of corn for the pigeons; others are before me, for the lell on tho Torre dell' Orologio has struck th noon hour, aud around the square many art engaged in the same charming occupation. 1 stop beside a young country woman within one of the arches, who has a Ecore of these beautiful birds on her person, one, two, three. on top of each other, all pushing, pecking and cooing for the bright, golden grain which she holds in her dainty outstretched hands, nnd tho happy smilo on her fair face attests to tho pure enjoyment she is having. A group of little ones, sitting on the pave ment, around the base of one of the bronze pedestals to the flagstaff's, with the birds all about them, in their laps, on their hands, is another pretty sight, till some one on the other side of the piazza coos to the birds. Tho pigeons simultaneously, from all direc tions, rise and go swooping and swii-ring down upon it en masse as it falls to the pave ment. After lunch, or dejeuner, visits to the ducal palace, the churches and academia fills up tho time till 3 p. m., when I return to St. Mark's to listen to the chanting of tho choir. And what a chorus it is. Never before have I beard such sacred music; the strong, clear voices of tho young mingle with tho deep tremor of the aged fathers; the grandly toned organ peals forth its stirring ac companiment iu delightful harmony. I rest upon the marble seat within the shadow of tho south aisle, and tho musio seems to come from far away; it swells up among the arches and domes and comes down in mellowed aud subdued reflections, and dies away iu a gentle and lingering echo which seems to love and caress the very air it pulsates. Leaving St. Mark's, I find my gondolier punctual at tho appointed time, aud we start out for our daily drift up the Grand canal as far as the station and back again, which oc cupies two hours, or till dinner time. I call it drifting, for that comes nearest to express ing the silent, utmost motionless gliding of this most fascinating of conveyances. The gondolier uses his oar, it is true, but the ac tion is so graceful, the exertion apparently so easy, the progress so dreamy and slow tnat it ewms to bo simply drifting, as if car ried along by some unseen current. Never beforo have I known what loafing, par ex cellence, ideal rest from all physical and mental activity meant; the cushions are soft us down, my gondolier a most entertain ing fellow, my cigarette tbe finest Alexan dria, the afternoon simply perfect, the Grand canal a wonderland, all quiet and still, with not a sound save the distant warning cry of some gondolier at the entrance of a side canal; and as I lie back and throw asido my hat and let the refreshing breeze play through my hair, I am content. Dinner being over, I once more direct my steps to the Piazza. The lamps are all aglow, and, if possible, tbe square is more enchant ing by night than by day. Standing just to tho right of tbe archway opening to the Merceria, one gets the finest view of the scene, tnomoonls midway up the eastern sky, just above St. Mark's, her mellow light dimming the lamps of the Piazza; the majes tic Campanile is outlined in sharp silhouette, its angel crowned spire seeming to reach up and lose itself amid the shining stars; it casts a full dark shadow the full length of the Piazza in strong contrast to the white ness of the moon lit pavement. The shops are all ablaze; diamonds, sap phires, rubies, emeralds, pearls, corals, gold and Genoese work flash back the fire from a thousand lights. The Arcade is full of surg ing humanity; the tables at the entrances to the cafes and out on the pavement are sur rounded by almost every nationality, sipping coffee and granita. The band stationed in the center of the square gives to the sceno the added charm of fine music. Dark eyed Venetian maidens smile at one through a mazo of soft black lace, mysteriously wound about their heads, half concealing, half re vealing their beautiful " faces. Flower girls laden with baskets or trays of exotics find ready sales, for the custom is universal; aud Rosa, the fairest of them all, so deftly and coquettishly fixes a boutonniero in your lapel that oue hasn't the heart to refuse the few sous anyway. What a scene I One never to be forgotten, and as I write, tbe memory of it makes the time seem a thousand years till I am fortu nate enough to be onco more in Venice. Well might Jacopo Foscari beg of bis im placable judges to allow him to return to die in Venice! Cor. Boston Transcript. Ice Bills of tbe Arctics. Advices from tbe fishing village of Kersch- karanza, in tbe Kola Peninsula, on tbe White sea, describe a wonderful phenomenon new in Arctic annals, which took place on Jon. 5 lost. At 4 o'clock in the morning the inhabitants were awakened by a series of heavy, dull detonations like distant artillery. Shortly afterward a great ice wall to tbe northwest, several hundred feet high, was seen to be moving toward tbe village, doubt less in consequence of tbe pressure of ocean ice outside. Tbe ice hills came slowly but irresistibly onward and passed over the village, which they completely erased, and kept onward for a mile inland. The ice traveled a mile and a half in four hours. The villagers saved their lives, but little else.Homa Journal. C altar of thecco Tre Gathering tb Mda for Mark. It is worth a )lttle delay here to study what is fast becoming what will in the near future be the chief industry of tbe colony. Wiser than our Barbadian friends and more fortu nate in territory, estate owners of Trinidad are turning their attention from cultivation of sugar, which is growing less profitable, to that of cocao, whose future is a certainty. Liko coffee, the cocao must be shaded from tbe sun; like ib, it is guarded by another tree that is culled the "bois immortelle." As wo soo it in Maraval valley and as it is every where, the cacao is a tree of from ten to twenty feat high, with rough, yellowish brown bark, large lanceolate leaves, and a dozen nuts the size and shae of young niutk melons, growing directly from the trunk or turgor limbs to which they are attached by a short pedicle. In color green while imma ture, they change to a chrome yellow or ma genta red when rie or to a mixture of both that is artistic. 'When picking time comes they are cut from the tree, gathered into boas and split open, tho latter operation revealing the seeds or cacao arranged in layers of disks like eoj per pennies from end to end, and covered with a white gelatinous substance. This is gotten rid of by fermentation by rotting it off in closed boxes; a process that needs con stant caution, as it will destroy tho kernels if carried too far. Tbe latter are dried in the suu, assorted and packed, when they aro ready for market, Cacao trees begin to bear at about six years of age, and continue for fifty, during all of which time they need but tho simplest coro, and yield constantly. There fore a cacao estate is an excellent thlii" to have iu the family, i-u. i..u vuiiuys oo neath whose thade and in whose well mat ured soil the tree flourishes best, are limited in extent, and there is but a comparatively small amount of goveriunent laud left upon which to found new plantations. About the only way to acquire one now is to watch chances carefully and purchase either a lurgo one that soma vicissitude of fortune has thrown into tho auction market, or pick up a number of small ones lying contiguous and join them into one. Ten years ago, estates could occasionally be purchased at a bargain, and the regular price was $1 a tree. Now it is only by chance that a decent one is offered, and tho price is from S3 to $5 a tree. Even at this last figure a cocao estate is no mean investment, as it requires no fertilization and is expected to yield SI a tree per annum. Dr. William F. Hutchinson in American Magazine. I.ucy Lari'oni'ii Teaching Days. "What was the most remarkable thing that happened iu tho log school J" "I am afraid you will scarcely believe it," she answered, with a merry shake of her head. It was tho flight of a girl up the chimney. I had made her sit on the empty fireplace as a punishment, and to put her so far away from the other children that she could not make them partners in her un timely frolics. She sat demure and thy at first. But there was a magnificent imp spirit iu her. It snapped in her black eyes, and rippled in faint twitches at tho ends of her red mouth.

"Did you make her come back the same way, a la MephistoT' inquired Mrs. Sher man. "On, no. We wero glad to get her back any way wo could. Wo could not spare a girl of such possibilities." "Had you any difficulty with the boys the big fellows?" Miss Larcom's face clouded. "Not serious trouble. I yes, it is too bad to have to own it made them go nnd get the rods that helped teach them. I had to make one strap ping rail splitter acknowledge that I was his master, and he was a good friend ever after ward." 'I suppose you underwent a severe exaroi- uationJ'' "I had to raise my right hand and swear that I was able to teach the three H's aud a good many other things. There was an ex amination also, but tho swearing went a long way. It did not amount to much, however, in getting the salary promptly. It was nec essary to go to another county to get it. Tho amount was 4-10 for three months." Chicago ''ribuno. Are Athletes Good Students? Much prejudice is often manifested against intercollegiate contests, as it is claimed that they are detrimental to good scholarship. In order to discover tho real state of the case, a thorough examination was recently made at Cornell university of tho records of all the men who had engaged in intercollegiate contests since the opening of the institution. Tho result showed that the average scholar ship for tho year of each man who had rowed on the crews was 70 per cent., that of the ball plavers 73, and that of the track ath letes 70, a standing of 70 per cent, being nec essary for graduation. Fifty-four per cent of all these men graduated, which is 7 per cent, above the university rate of gradu ation The baseball and track athletes grad uated 31 per cent of then number, with an honorable standing (80 per cent), which is about in the same proportion as the .uni versity rate. Very few of the crew men, however, graduated with honors. Iu physical development tho reverse order was found to hold, the crew men coming first, the baseball players next and tho track athletes last. The total average was consid erably above that of tbe university. The re sults would seem to show that intercollegiate contests, whea kept within reasonable limits, do not interfere with the general scholarship of educational institutions, and this is the at titude which the presidents of Cornell havo always held toward tbe subject New York Tribune. A Queen of the Congo. Dr. Wolf says that while he was ascending tho great Sankuru affluent of the Congo a number of the wild Bassongo-Mino, who had never before seen a white man, suddenly popped up out of the bushes ono day, and aimed their arrows at tbe visitors as their steamer was approaching tho shore only about a rod away. He says he has no doubt that the next instant a volley of arrows would bave poured into the little crowd on deck bad not a woman in the dress of a native queen suddenly leaped . among the throng of savages, struck to tbe ground tho bow of one man who was just ready to let bis missile fly, and in a tone of authority bade the rest of the crowd to unbend their weapons and also their warlike front. The brief command and cautionary gesture of this picturesque female had a magical effect upon her warrior subjects, who relaxed their bows and grinned sheepishly at the pale faces, who were nervously beginning to finger their revolvers.
