is so'lmch feared by the Indians, who
at o predisposed to affections of the lungs,
that they change their camp if apprised
by the atmospheric conditions that the
. dreaded fog is approaching.
! Odgen, a chemist of the Nevada min
ing bureau, furnishes this pleasing de-
i Ecription of the pogonip: "In the White
Pine mountains, the Toyabi, the Myko
' and the Parranagat ranges it is quite
common to see the trees, houses and
everything out in the oien gradually be
come white without any apparent cause.
There is no perceptible fog, but the hot
air from the valleys gradually ascends
up the mountain side, and becoming
crystallized, the minute crystals attach
themselves to anything in sight. This
phenomenon affects human beings in
just the same manner, and when the fog
passes by, the frozen particles will ad
here to the hair and clothing, producing
a very grotesque effect." Providence
Two Kinds of Italians.
. .The monument which is to be erected
in New Orleans in memory of the late
Chief of Police Hennessey is nearing
completion at the works of the HalloweU
(Me.) ' Granite company. The' monu
ment has three bases, the lowest 7J feet
square.'' On the top base the name
'Hennessey" is chiseled in raised let
ters. The capital is two feet in height
with paneled sides. Surmounting the
capital is a plain granite column thirteen
feet in height. At the foot ' of the col
umn is the coat of arms of Louisiana.
. and above that is a representation of the
dead chiefs badge. From ' the draped
top of the column are suspended a
. policeman's belt and a club, like those
worn by the dead chief.
A singular circumstance in connection
with this monument is that seven of the
nine , men employed in making it are
Italians. ' Speaking of that, Joseph
Archi, who has charge of the work, said,
"The Italians who are doing this work
, are of a different class altogether from
the New Orleans Italians who killed
Hennessey, and they are in perfect sym
pathy with the Americans who shot our
evil minded countrymen." Boston Tran

Sirs. H el wig's u.034 Loose Teeth.
Armed with a search warrant Treas
ury Agents Soehnglen and Harlan vis
ited the residence of Dr. Emmey Hel
wig, a female physician, and after ran
sacking the place they located a trig
package of false molars. ' The teeth
were all single, no sets being found.
They numbered just 5,034. The woman
was taken before Chief Treasury Agent
Scanlan, where she admitted having
brought the teeth from Germany. She
came to America Oct. 4, 1890.
There is a duty of 60 per cent, on
porcelain teeth, and as the lot was val
ued at $300 the duty would have been
considerable. After safely passing the
customs officers at New York Mrs. Hel
wig came to Chicago, where she opened
a dentist's office. This failing to pay
she hung out her shingle as a female
physician. Chicago Tribune.
Hens and Dark.
Fish stories are good, but they cannot
compare in interest with the hen stories
that were told at the Plowman Farmers'
meeting in John Hancock building.
James Rankin, of South Easton, the es
sayist, described a pair of healthy chick
ens hatched from a double yolked eggs
which were joined at the wings by a
fleshy integument. They had to be sep
arated, because one of them developed
a tendency to turn somersaults, which
proved a source of annoyance and dan
ger to his less acrobatically inclined
mate. He also told of a flock of ducks
that would never enter the water unless
accompanied by a young lady attendant,
and at a certain hour every day they
would come to the house and quack for
her to come out and go with them to
the water's edge. Boston Transcript. '
Vermont Deer Return to New York.
The attempt to stock the Green moun
tains with deer will doubtless prov a
complete failure. A number of years
ago some of the animals were brought
from New York and turned loose upon
the mountain slopes in the thinly inhnb
iteti sections of the stat6. That t ley
have brec and increased it is quite natu
ral to suppose, but the reason that they
are not now any more numerous than
they were five years ago can be attrib
uted to the fact that in the winter they
cross Lake Champlain on the ice into
the Adirondack wilderness, never to re
turn. Vermont Cor. Albany Journal.
The Preacher's Celluloid Cuffs Took Fire.

An Amateur Performer Who Instated
I'pon Following the Lines.
It is not often that professional actors
get mixed up in amateur theatricals,
but when they do, as a rule, their lives
are made miserable until the affair is
over. A few years ago a young wom
an, who was one of the reigning belles
of the Four Hundred in this city, wrote
a romantic play, plentifully sprinkled
with singing and dancing. She read the
play to her intimate friends, and they
one and all unanimously declared that
it should 1j produced at one of the the
aters where amateur irformances are
held, and that the author should play
the part of the heroine. After much
coaxing the lady consented. The play
was called "Kismet." The cast was se
lected from among the best amateurs,
the leading man being the head and
front of them. The scene of the play
was laid in Turkey, in the garden and
palace of the sultan. The plot was
hinged on the abduction of two beauti
ful girls and their final rescue.
A clever professional stage manager
was engaged at a big salary and re
hearsals began. Everything went along
as smoothly as could be expected until
the last rehearsal, which took place on
the morning of the day appointed for the
production, when a note was hastily de
livered to the stago manager 6ayiug that
the leading lady and author had lost her
voice completely, and that her physician
had ordered her not to leave the house.
She was very sorry, but advised that a
professional actress bo engaged to take
her plac. Here was "a pretty kettlo of
fish" how to get an actress at so short
a notice. The costumes must be fitted
and the part learned before 7 p. m. The
manager thought of a friend of his, Mrs,
Addie Plunkctt, Charles Plunkett's wife,
who had just closed her season with
I .vrence Barrett and who was then at
liberty. He sent for her and requested
her to return with the messenger. She
did so, and after a long talk with the
stage manager consented to rehearse the
part. She was nervous; of course. '
In the garden scene her sister's lover
has discovered her hiding place and
they are having a loving interview, the
heroine remaining on the lookout for
interruptions, which may occur in the
form of the sultan's servants, which
would mean death to the intruder. At
a certain cue the heroine rushes np to
her sister s fiance and tells him to "Fly!
fly for your life some one approaches!"
and the lover is pushed through a wick
et and escapes. . Mrs. Pluhkett rehearsed
the ecene carefully and told the leading
man that in case she should forget to
say all the lines she would' make him
understand when it was time for him to
make kis exit. Thus it was settled be
tween them. Evening came, and the
time for the curtain to be rung up ar
rived. Most of the performers had stage
fright, one fair amateur declaring that
she had entirely forgotten her lines and
was sure that she would faint from
The x'erforraance began and Mrs.
Plunkett struggled bravely through her
part, dropping an occasional speech now
and then, but with professional tact she
covered up her mistakes so that the au
dience was none the wiser. When the
garden scene was readied the lover ap
peared in good time and she stood guard
until the proper cue was given. It came
all right, buv, alas for Mrs. Plunkett, she
had forgotten her lino.". When she heard
the sultan's guard approach she rushed
to the lover and said, "Away! begone!"
but she received no response from tliat
gentleman. She pushed him and tried
to get him to go through the wicket, as
agreed upon, but he refused to budge an
inch, and said to her in a stage whisper,
"Say 'Fly! fly!'" but Mrs. Plunkett was
beyond speech by this time, so 6he con
tinued to push him toward the wicket.
Her efforts were useless, however, foi
he . resisted and declared he would not
go until 6he said, " 'Fly! fly! for your
life, some one approaches,' so the audi
ence can hear you." Still she could not
speak,; but with one herculean effort
she gave him a tremendous push that
sent him flying through the wicket and
into some stage bushes which had been
artistically arranged at the back of the
stage. When the performance was over
Mrs. Plunkett heaved a 6igh of relief
and said, "This is the first and last ama
teur performance former New York

The Growth of Two Cities.
Just as the Atlantic cities were sur
prised when Chicago distanced all but
two of them in population, and chal
lenged all of them by her enterprise, .so
will they be astonished again and from
another quarter if they refuse to study
the forces that are operating to build up
new capitals in the west. In another
ten years there will be another claim of
a million population, and the counting
of heads will not make nonsense of it.
The new and wonderful assumption of
metropolitan importance will be that of
the twin . cities of the wheat region
Minneapolis and St. Paul. They may
not be joined under one name and gov
ernment opinions differ-about -that
but all agree that they will jointly pos
sess a million of population. The last
census credited Minneapolis with 164,
700 population and St. Paul with 133,000,
or, jointly, 297,000. At the time of the
preceding census (1880) the two cities in
cluded about 88,000 sonls. At that Tate
of increase they will boast in 1900 a
population of 976,000 and more. Julian
