storekeeper, who carried a general stoc k,

the merchant did not hapien to have in

"Have you any dried beef, Mr. Cash

"Do you keep any such thing as wicks

Civilization and Wilderness.
Upon the 1,500 miles of the shore of
Lake Superior there are living now less
than 150,000 persons, and these are
mainly in bustling cities like Duluth,
Superior and Marquette, in industrial
colonies like Calumet and Red Jacket,
or in struggling little ports like Fort
William and Port Arthur. Even there
the wilderness and primeval conditions
are face to face with the robust civiliza
tion which is shouldering its way ascaj)
ital is accustomed to do rather than as
natural growth usually asserts itself.
Not that it is not a wholly natural growth
which we find at all points on the lake
shore, for it is all in response to the inex
orable laws of supply and demand. Yet
the communities there have sprung into
being far apart from well settled regions
in answer to these laws.
Thus it happens that today one ma'
ride in an electric street car to the start
ing point for a short walk to a trout
stream, or one may take the steam rail
road and in an hour alight at a forest
station, breakfasting there, but enjoy
ing for luncheon a cut of the deer or a
dish of the tront or the partridge which
be nas killed for the purpose, it is, so
to say, a region wherein the wholesale
fisherman with his steamboat disturbs
the red man who is spearing a fish for
supper, where the wolf blinks in the
glare of the electric lamp, and where the

Bide by side. Julian Ralph in Harper's.
The Hoqai Indiana.
A hundred miles north of the Petrified
forest and well into the edge of the Ari
zona desert are the seven strange and
yeldom visited Pneblo cities of Moqui.
They all hp. -& wildly unpronounceable
names, like li'aalpi, A-hua-tu and Mish-
ongop-avi, and all are built on the sum
nuts of almost inaccessible mesas
islands of solid rock, whose generally
perpendicular cliff walls rise high from
the surrounding plain. They are very
remarkable towns in appearance, -set
upon dizzy sites, with quaint terraced
houses of adobe, and queer little corrals
for the animals in nooks and angles of
the cliff, and giving far outlook across
the browns and yellows and the spectral
peaks of that weird plain. But they
look not half so remarkable as they are.
The most remote from civilization of
all the Pueblos, the least affected by the
Spanish influence which so wonderfully
ruled over the enormous area of the
southwest, and practically untouched by
the later Saxon influence, the Indians of
the Moqui towns retain almost entirely
their wonderful customs of before the
conquest. Their languages are different
from those of any other of the Pueblos;
and their mode of life though to a hasty
glance the same is in many ways un
like that of tiieir brethren in New Mex
ico. Charles F. Lummis in St. Nicholas
A Detroit Man's Cane.
A Detroit man has a novel walking
cane that represents the work of odd
hours every day for six weeks. It is
made of old postage stamps of various
denominations and six nationalities
United States, Canadian, English,
French, German and Italian. It took
5,014 stamps to make a cane. The face
value of the stamps was f 100. The sur
face of the cane, when the stamps were
all on, was filed smooth and finished un
til it glazed. A heavy gold knob com
pletes one of the handsomest and most
unique canes ever seen in Detroit.

Telling the l)es.
- The curious custom of "telling the
bees" is observed in some parts of nearly
every country in the world. Those who
observe the custom always go to the bee
hives and tap gently on each one, then
stoop and whisper under the cap or lid
that Mary, Jane, Thomas or William is
dead. This is done to keep the little
honeymakers from forsaking their place
of abode should they have to wait and
find out the news of the calamity them
selves. The custom is alluded to m
Whittier's poem, "Telling the Bees."

East and West.
The failure of the people of the Atlan
tic states to understand the area, condi
tions, products and needs of the west is
not infrequently illustrated in national
legislation. Tho late Editor Bundy, of
the New York Mail and Express, said a
hhort time before his death:
"The people of the r-ist know lirtl-?
about the west, bnt 1 have aiways found
that the people of the west were well in
formed about the east." San Francisco
MR. BELCHER'S FIRST SERMON.
Hi Widow Denrrlhea the Great Trench
er' Flr&t itrooMyii 8rmon.
Mrs. Henry Ward Eeicher gives an i
teresting account of the first sn:i: -i
preached by Mr. Dee: her in I'lyino-nii
church. Brooklyn, in her fifth paper .
"Mr. Boecher as I Knew Him" in '1 ).
Ladies' Home Journal. A perfect i'.wi'i
of warnings and criticisms came l I, , i
before his first sermon. Doubtless i
these warnings determined Mr. Beech, i
more than aught else that the peojK'
his new church should fully unlerhtni :
before he was installed what course I
was likely to pursue. He told ine.lu t
if Plymouth church decided to iie t..ii
him, it would do so with its eyes wii'
open. It wtis upon the evening of Sni:
; day. Oct. 10, 18-17. He sat quietly .
the pulpit while the choir was singing
Ilis eyes scanned the concourse of l
pie before him, but it was the look ot
i confidence that 1 saw.
Knowing as I did something of wh:.t
I he intended to say, 1 could not ln.
j think, "Will these people accept the
j bold course he has marked out for I is
work from one so young looking?" Fo:
; his ten years of labor at the west had
not rubbed the youth from his face. 1
j noticed the almost contemptuous looks
! of the strangers present as they watched
his face. As he ros) to read the Scrip
tures a deathlike silence pervaded Die
great church. But not a tremor w;i.s
visible in the voice that spoke. With
that mellow voice which the Brooklyn
public learned so well to know he re:vl
the lesson of the evening as if he were be
fore his Lawrenceburg audience. Thc t
as he uttered the first low sentence of
his prayer, as his heart rose heavenward,
the effect of the preacher became visible
on his congregation, and he brought his
hearers close to the mercy seat. All wa
changed. An almost breathless solemni
ty jiervaded the church, and tears wert
on many faces.
The youthful look vanished and d:
not return, as in his sermon he pl.;inh
and with great solemnity showed hi
hearers tho course duty called him tr
pursue. As he said of these rem::rl:
years after: "I lifted up the banner and
blew the trumpet in tho application ct
Christianity to intemperance, to slavery
and all other great national sins. 1 said
to those present, 'If I remain here and
you come to this church it must at the
commencement bo distinctly understoot
that I wear no fetters, that 1 will be
bound by no precedent, and that I will
preach the Gospel as I apprehend it
whether men will hear or whether they
will forbear, and I will apply it sharply
and strongly to the overthrow of every
evil and to the upbuilding of all that is
After the close of the sermon many
came to counsel Mr. Beecher. They
were actuated by kindness to him and
anxiety for the church. Such bold, plain
speaking they did not understand. They
had never been used to it. It would
overthrow this young church.
"Don't ally yourself to unpopular men
or unpopular causes, they told him
"There is no call for it. You will only in
jure yourself and break up this church.'
After preaching a month in Plymouth
church he was installed as pastor on
Nov. 11, 1847.

embarrassed young lawyer hesitatingly,
"I could plead my cause with mQre self

"Perhaps you have not had an erten
give practice in such courts, William,'
suggested the maiden softly.
"That's it exactly, Clara!" eagerly re
joined the young man, moving his chair
a little nearer. "I m a green hand at
this business; but if I could feel sure the
"Yes wasn't prejudiced against the
"Yes why, then, I might"
"What kind of jury are yon consider
ing me, William?" she asked, with eyes
"A h'm petit jury of course. You
couldn't be a grand jury, you know,
"Because we don't try cases before
"I think, William," said the young
girl blushing, "I would rather for this
occasion be considered a grand jurj'."
"Because" and she hid her face
somewhere in the vicinity of his coat
collar "I have found a true Bill!"
"I was arguing with an Englishman
the other day," said a New Yorker,
"over the pronunciation of a word, and
finally I said, 'We'll leave it to Web

lishman, 'that's only one man's opinion.

Aluminium is suggested for coining by
Sir Henry Bessemer in diseussing the
demand for a token at the value of one
pound. Aluminium is so light that if
taken from the pocket in the dark it
would be instantly recognized as neither
gold nor silver. Also the weight of lead
or pewter alloys would make it impossi
ble to pass off spuriou saluminium coins.
