THE INCREDIBLE FORCE OF THE
STREAMS THEY THROW.
Mountain. Ilwvo Itcrii M oveil. Vnlleys
Iui; Out and the Whole I'ikm- .f Suture
Chunked In I'urtH til f.'aliforuia by Small
Streams of Falllii); Water.
One of the most noteworthy features
in many portions of the gold region ia
the elaborate system of water supply for
the use of the hydraulic mines and the
tremendous changes which were the re
sult of the few years during which hy
draulicking was at its height. So great
have been these changes hills washed
away, valleys filled up. others created
that in many localities the entire land
scape has been altered.
The old proverb ascribing the power
to remove mountains tosuch as had faith
only to the amount of a gntin of mus
tard seed has never been exemplified,
but the hydraulic miners have tifforded
the most ample demonstration of their
ability to move mountains in the Bearch
of wealth. Lofty mountains iiave in
fact lieeu brought low through no other
agency than the pipe line, the monitor
and tho sluice, and the tremendous pow
er of water never received such an exem
plification as in the history of the hy
draulic mines of California.
There are indeed 60 many remarkable
facts connected therewith that, were
they not abundantly substantiated, one
might well be pardoned for receiving
their relation with incredulity. One
might not believe that a stream of water
issuing from a nozzle or pipe six inches
in diameter, and with no other force but
gravity behind it, would have much ef
fect at any considerable distance from the
aperture, yet 6uch an apparently insig
nificant stream, with a fall behind it of
375 feet, will carry away a solid boulder
weighing a ton or more at a distance of
fifty to 100 feet, while at a less distance
it will toss such a bowlder about as a boy
would throw a pebble.
POWEK OK WATER.
The velocity and force of such a stream
as it issues from the nozzlo of the mon
itor is something terrific. The column
of water is solid so solid that if one
were to undertake to thrust any object
into it it would make no more impres
sion than if it were iron instead of
liquid. If a crowbar or other heavy ob
ject be thrust against the stream it
would be snatched from the hand and
thrown to a great distance as if it were
a feather weight, while the man who
should firmly grasp an ax and attempt
to cut through the stream would under
go an experience that he would remem
ber for many a day.
If a man were to receive the full force
of such a stream at a distance of a couple
of hundred feet, even though the impact
be momentary, he would be killed as
quickly as though 6truck by a cannon
ball, fie might escaiie being mangled,
but the breath would be most effectually
and suddenly expelled from his body.
At 400 feet from the nozzle a C-inch
stream, with 373 feet fall, 6wung mo
mentarily against the trunk of a tree
will denude it in a second of the heaviest
bark as cleanly as if an ax had been
used. Whenever such a stream is turned
against a gravel bank it cuts and bur
rows into it in every direction, gouging
out great caves, causing thousands of
tons of earth to fall, which in turn is
quickly disintegrated and washed into
Bowlders so heavy that a man can
scarcely lift them are tossed about like
chaff, stumps and trunks of trees are
thrown to one 6ide like straws, and the
work of destruction goes on at a pace
that is appalling. If one who has never
seen a monitor in operation under full
head could imagine the ordinary stream
from a fire hose magnified about a thou
sand times he would be able to form some
conception of its power.
THE MOXlTOtt IN ACTION.
The water is brought in open ditches
or flumes, sometimes from a great dis
tance, around mountain sides and across.
valleys and ravines. When the vicinity
of the mine is reached a box is put in.
from which a pipe conducts the water to
the point where it is to be used. It is
the distance between this box and the
level of the monitor that gives the press
ure, with from :.uu to 4oU feet tall the
execution done is tremendous.
At the monitor the water is conducted
into a still smaller pipe, with nozzle
about one-third the size of the supply
pipe, the compression giving it still
greater force. The monitor is construct
ed something like the ordinary hose noz
zle, but has a ball joint that permits it
to be swung in any direction. Almost
the weight of a finger will suffice to di
rect the movement.
Easily as it is managed, however, the
monitor sometimes becomes uncontrol
lable, and when this happens a scene of
destruction and even death ensues. The
pipe sways to and fro at its own volition.
and the stream Hies first in one direction
and then in another. If the miners
are not warned in time to get out of
range they may bat mowed down as if
by the discharge of a volley of grape.
Sometimes the runaway monitor seems
as if manipulated by some bloodthirsty
monster, and appears to be deliberately
turned upon the fleeing men, following
them as they fly in every direction and
overtaking them before they can reach a
place of safety.
When a monitor gets away from con
trol in this manner there are two things
that can be done. The water may be
shut off at the headgate, a process in
volving much delay and perhaps loss, or
some brave man may rush in and get to
the monitor without being struck by the
stream. To do this requires agility and
pluck. The stream is liable to box the
compass msiae of a minute, ana its
course must be watched and the probable
direction noted. Then over the rough
surface the man must hasten, careful
not to make a misstep, and at the same
time ready to flee should the erratic!,
stream betray a tendency to change its
course so as to endanger life. San Fran
At Uaic. Kecatnier 's.
The salon of Mate Ilecaniier was
ot in any sense philosophical or tmlit-
ical, but after the cruel pcivecutiou of
La Ilarie, the tunmiiment of Mum. de
Stael, aud the similar misfortunes of
other friencLs. her ttympaihies were too
etrong for her diplomacy, and it grad
ually fell into the ranks of the opposi
tion. It was well known that tho em-
' peror regarded .all who went there as his
enemies, and this young and innocent
woman was destined to feel tile full bit
terness of his jietty displeasure.
We cannot trace here the incidents of
her varied career, the misfortunes of the
father to whom she was a ministering
angel, the loss of her husband's fortune
and her own, the years of wandering
and exile, the second jieriod of brief and
illusive prosperity, and the swift reverses
which led to her filial retreat. She was
at the height of her fame in the early
days of the Restoration, when her salon
revived its old brilliancy, and was a
center in which till parties met on neut ral
ground Her intimate relations with
those in power gave it a strong political
influence, but this was never a marked
feature, as it was mainly personal.
Lut tho position in which one is most
inclined to recall Mine. Itecamier is in
tho convent of Abbaye-aux-liois, where.
divested of fortune and living in the
simplest mauner, she preserved for nearly
thirty years the fading traditions of the
old salons. Through all the changes
which tried her fortitude and revealed
the latent heroism of her character, siie
seems to have kept her sweet serenity
unbroken, bending to the passing storms
with the grace of a facile nature, but
never murmuring at the inevitable. On
may find in this inflexible strength and
gentleness of temper a clew to the subtle
fascination which held tho devoted
friendship of bd many gifted men atid
wemen long after the fresh charm of
youth was gone. Amelia Gere Mason
Keliavior at Table.
Keep your mouth closed when eating.
Never play with food, nor mince your
bread, nor handle your knife and fork or
the glass or silver near you unnecessar
ily. If a fishbone, etc., should inad
vertently get into tho mouth, the lips
must be covered with the napkin while
removing it. Never pick your teeth at
the table. Do not put large pieces of
food in 3-our mouth; if you are addressed
when j our mouth is so tilled, you are
obliged to pause before answering until
the vast mouthful is masticated, or run
the risk of choking by swallowing it too
hastily. To eat very fast is a mark of
greediness, and should be avoided.
JNever 6oaK up gravy with bread or
6crape your plate. Never, if possible,
cough or sneeze at the table. Do not
lean back in your chair.
The hostess or host should not insist
upon guests partaking of particular
dishes, nor ask persons more than once.
nor put anything on their plates which
they have declined. It is ill bred to urge
a person to eat anything after he has de
clined. A half ladleful of sonpis enough
to serve, unless it is a country dinner,
where a full ladleful may be given; but
do not fill the soup plate. Avoid the
appearance of self engrossment when
eating, unless you wish to be considered
entirely devoted to your food. Never
overload the plate of a guest or any
person you would serve. If you are to
serve anything of which the supply is
limited, use discretion that all may en
joy some ot it. Mrs. b. a. bnider in
Properties of Aluminum.
Before dealing with the many proc
esses now in the field for the cheap pro
duction of aluminum, we may briefly
glance at the properties and special char
acteristics of the metal under considera
tion. Aluminum has a white silver like
appearance.is both malleable and ductile.
and from its sonorous properties is much
used in the manufacture of bells. An
exceedingly important feature is its
lightness, a property which favors its
employment for many special purposes.
Aluminum has a specific gravity of only
2.56 that is, is two and a half times as
heavy as water, and is four times lighter
Heat and electricity are conducted by
aluminum as well as by silver, while it
does not oxidize in air even at red heat,
has no action on water at ordinary tem
perature, and preserves its luster where
silver would tarnish, being thus specially
remarkable as the lightest metal capable
of resisting the action of air even in the
presence of moisture. Chambers' Jour
nal. Women in the Itank of France.
The Bank of France einploj-s a very
large number of women as accountants
in the classification of bills, in the classi
fication of coupons and in the depart
ment of printing and binding. The
ladies employed in this category are
called dames titulaires. They are jaid
three francs (sixty cents) a day, and are
required to pass a preliminary examina
tion in writing, spelling and arithmetic.
They must be from eighteen to thirty-
five. In the printing office an appren
ticeship of two years is required as
pamphlet sewers. These women work
in the same shop as the men, and are
paid at exactly the same rates. After
twenty years' service they are retired
with a pension of 400 francs ($S0). Rec
ommendations from influential persons
are requisite for obtaining places in the
