HOW THEY CARRY THEIR MONEY.

Some carry only gold. James Brown ;
Potter favors gold, and usually carries a '

Lispenard Stewart usually has a roll of
new bills in his vest pocket.
"The man who comes in and fishe3
from a deep trousers pocket a lot of one,

twisted up like a grxn wadding I always
set down as a sporting 'gent.'
"The farmer on an excursion to 'Bos-
ting' counts up the price of a ticket in
quarters and halves from a tan colored
leather pouch that is tied np with a
string run through small slits near the
top. The seafaring man on his way to
his home on the Maine coast carries the
proceeds of his last trip in a calfskin
wallet. It has been handed down from
his father, or perhaps his grandfather,
for it is black and shiny with age. It
has a long strap passed through a num
ber of cross straps. The cross sections
seldom have more in them than tobacco
dust or a frayed tax receipt that shows
that he owns a house. But in the cen
ter of the wallet is a place where bills
may be laid out straight and covered
with a calfskin flap from either side.
"The man who carries change in his
coat pockets has been a car conductor
at some time or other. The fellow who
draws ten cent pieces from every pocket
in his clothes is a peanut man or vender
of small wares.
"The women, too, have a variety of
ways to carry their money, though their
lack of pockets limits their vagaries in
that direction. The young woman with
fluffy hair, who has the price of her
ticket rolled tightly in her palm, has a
mysterious storage place for money
somewhere. When she is not spending
it she puts it where no man will ever go
after it, but the place is accessible to
her slim fingers in a second." New
Reply from the Pew.
"Joe" Jones, one of Sam's numerous
brothers, has enlisted in the ministry.
His first sermon was preached in a coun
try church at Pine Log before a large
congregation of farmers, backwoodsmen
and crackers. Sam's methods were fol
lowed with considerable success, but
when Joe branched off on his own hook
he struck a snag. He caused his hearers
to wince when, slapping tho Bible nearly
off the pulpit, ha exclaimed:
"A man what will cuss a oath'll
There was a lively shifting among the
pews and much cautious looking around
and head shaking. Joe saw. and deter
mined to i ..o!i his point.
"Brethren and sisters," ho repeated,
"I want to say to you that a man what
will cuss a oath'll steal! What have
you got to say to that."
An aged cracker arose at the back of
the church and, fastening his glittering
gray eye on Joe, drawled through his
"All I got ter say is it's er gol dern lie!"
Joe was so discouraged that he rested
on his oars two weeks before making
my more bold assertions. New York
Registration in Germany.
In Germany the exigencies of compul
sory military service require that a man
should be registered from the day of his
birth to that of his death. The govern
ment must be able to lay hands upon
him at any time. A man can accom
plish no civil act without producing his
papers of identity. He cannot set up in
business, nor buy land, nor obtain a
situation, nor marry, nor get out of any
scrape with the judicial authorities, nor
leave the country without satisfying
the police as to who he is, where he was
born, who were his parents, etc. Lon
Throwing ?Ien Overboard.
In ancient Scotland the barbarous cus
tom existed which cost Jonah so much
inconvenience. When a ship became
unmanageable it was usual to cast lots
for the purpose of discovering who was
responsible for the trouble, and the man
upon whom the lot fell was condemned.
Instead of human beings dogs used
sometimes to be thrown into the sea
with their legs bound. Washington
Very stout persons may sometimes b?
noticed glancing at other stout perso: is
with a pleased expression that seems to
say, "Well, I'm not as stout as that, suiy
way;" or, "There i3 some one who is
quite as stout as I am." Evidently it is a
consoling thought. Youth's Companion.

"Away up in the Sierras, where the j
mountains rear their snow white peaks
and stand like sentinels in armor guard-1
ing the gold that lies hidden in tho rocky
canyons below, I once saw an exhibition
of riile shooting which I have never
since seen equaled," remarked a grizzled i
old man whoso sands of life had nearly
run, as ho stood surrounded by a group j
of interested listeners in a well known i
Clark street sporting resort tho other i

"We followed the old stage road that
led up from Stockton through Sonora
and Cherokee camp, and then struck
out over a trail that led through tho
'Big Basin' and up to the headwaters of
the Tolumne river. It was in June and
the air was full of the fragrance of
flowers, while ' the sunlight as it flick-j

"We had long before left civilization
behind us, when late one evening we
came out of the woods into a little
mountain meadow that was known as
Crane's flats, and was tho headquarters
for a band of cattle herders. Most of
them were Italians, but they gave us a
warm welcome. One of them in particu- '
lar attracted my attention. He was tall,
lithe and muscular, and walked with the '
easy 6wing of a professional pedestrian.
His eyes were of bluish gray, and he
seemed to be a leader among his com-'
panions, all of whom were swarthy and
" 'If you can get that fellow to show
you some shooting you will see some
thing wonderful in that line, whispered
one of my companions.
" 'Who is he?" I asked.
" 'Italian Joe,' was the reply.
"I had heard of Italian Joe before. At
Sonora, at Cherokee, at the Confidence
mines and in a hundred other places bis

"The next morning I asked him to
give us an exhibition of his skill. Shoot
ing was his weak point, and he consent
ed. Unlike the coy maiden, who can
sing, but wishes to be coaxed before she
does, he had his notes with him. Tak
ing a Colt's revolving rifle in his hands
he paced off a hundred yards and pinned
a common cap box to the trunk of a
huge oak. Coming back, he wheeled as
quick as lightning, and without sight
ing, apparently, he emptied the cham
bers. Six of the shots were in a circle
around the edge, while the seventh waa

"Loading again, he glanced about
him. High up in the heavens a hawk
circled warily through the blue, looking
for something to prey upon. There was
a moment of hesitation, a quick report
and down came the hawk with a bullet
in his head. Pennies, dimes and quar
ters that were tossed in the air came
down with a bullet hole through them.
He missed norbing that he drew a bead
on. He could beat all the Carvers and
the Buffalo Bills that you ever saw."

Tho vultures had picked all the flesh
from the bones, and the sun, wind and

Effect of Gravitation.
If a man weighing twelve stone were
to be transferred to the moon, tho weight
of his body, measured, at least, by the
attraction which the moon would exer
cise upon it, would be reduced to about
two stone. If his muscles and his frame
remained the same, it would seem as it
he would be able to jump over a wall
twelve feet high on the small globe
without any greater exertion than would
be required to clear a wall two feet high
on the earth. Good Words.
Mountain Lions Are Great Cowards.
Mountain lions are the greatest cow
ards in the mountains, although people
who are not familiar with them believe
that they stretch out on limbs of trees
and pounce upon unsuspecting travel
ers. I will guarantee to take an ordi
nary hickory club and chase any lion
in the mountains, although I have one
hide at homo measuring nine feet from

Amnsement of Texas Engineers.
Engineers of railroad train3 in Texas

The Oldest I'anknote.
The oldest banknote now in existence
is in the British museum, and was is
sued from the imperial mint of China at
the beginning of the reign of the first
Ming emperor. The first bank in Eu
rope was at Barcelona, established in
1401. The Chinese banknote is supposed
to date back to 1100. New York Sun.
Coins; to Africa.
Grwit interest is exhibited in the pro
posed East African expedition of Mr.
William Astor Chanler. The Tama
liver, which ho propoHes to follow, is in
habited along the lower part principally
by tho Wa-Pokomo, a nice which sub
sists by cultivation. The banks of tho
river being low, the country on Wh
sides is annually inundated, and the
river thus acts as a liberal fertilizer.
Mr. Chanler has no easy task Ix-foro
him, as some of tho tribes to le parsed
in reaching Mount Kenia have had
their suspicions and hostility aroused
by tho harsh and barbarous course of the
German explorer Dr. Peters.
He will start early in June in company
with Lieutenant Ilohnel, of tho Austrian
navy, and Count Tolaki, with the object
of careful scientific research and ol
servation in that region. They will
travel along the Tama river, resting for
Bomo weeks at the snowcapped moun
tain of Kenia, where they will make
astronomical observations. After ex
ploring tbo mountain to its summit if
possible they will plunge into tin; almost
unknown regions of East Rudolph lake.
It was there that Baron Vecken was
murdered, and that Reviol, Respoli and
Ferrendi failed in their efforts to accom
plish their aims.
Tho region abounds in warlike tribes.
Mr. Chanler intends to enter the region
from tho west, after leaving Lake Ru
dolph, and proceed along tho Tubba
river to tho sea. He expects to Ihj al
sent about eighteen months. He will
take with hint his young servant, George
Galmin, who accompanied him through
Mashonaland. Mr. Chanler is full of
hope and will go fully equipped for his
perilous enterprise, which is expected to
have most interesting and valuable re
sults. Philadelphia Leader.
A Tame Dnc-kling.
The extraordinary sight of a duckling
that has just 6hed its shell following a
young woman about the house with all
the affection of a pet dog is a domestic
wonder in the family of Mrs. Carr. Ever
since Ea6ter morn the neighbors have
been dropping in to witness the spec
tacle, and the fame of the singular at
tachment has attracted attention among
people who are interested in natural
phenomena of every description.
The little duckbing has been in the
family since Easter Sunday, when it
was brought as a gift to Mrs. Carr's
baby daughter, Serena, aged four years,
who was di lighted with her new pet.
The duck at once struck up a long
friendship for the domestic, Mary Mc
Cullough, ard has been the young wom
an's constant companion ever since.
Whenever Mary speaks the duck re
sponds with the piping salutation and
waddles after the young woman wher
ever she goes. The most astonishing
thing about this freak cf nature is that
if any other inmate c the household
attempts to induce it to answer, the
webfooted prodigy maintains a solemn
silence, but Mary has only to utter a
word when the quacking begins and is
kept up until she has ceased speaking.
A little girl is reported to have died (
near the imaginary line in Oklahoma
which divided the recently opened res- ,
servations from the remainder of the
territory just as the signal was given for j
the grand rush for lands. The child and !
Mil 1 1 1 J-
ner lamer were aione ana unknown, oui
the beauty of the one and the still, deep
grief of the other moved the strong men
of the frontier to acts of admirable sym
pathy. A runner on a swift horse located a
homestead, and returning placed the
father of the dead girl in possession of
it. The body of the child was trans
ported to the claim and buried upon it.
Afterward it was discovered the re
maining one of the unfortunate couple
was absolutely penniless, and a purse of
money was given him with the hope that
the claim will prove a haven of rest to
him and that the homestead shall al
ways be known as "Mary's claim."
Death from Ingrowing Toe Nail.
Some time ago there was published
the story of the death of a Long Island
physician from blood poisoning result
ing from an ingrowing toe nail. A well
known surgeon chiropodist said tho
other day to the reporter: "The death of
that Long Island doctor is not the first I
have heard of from the same cause.
"The cause of the disease is comi ion
and painful and usually directly trace
able to narrow toed shoes. It causes
pain as severe as a toothache and not
infrequentTy, when neglected, results in
blood poisoning. I know of an opera
tion for ingrowing toe nail in an English
hospital where the patient suffered so
much pain that they gave him a mixture
of ether and chloroform. The operation
was successful, but when it was finished
the physicians found that their patient
had died from the chloroform." New
To Preserve aii Alpine Flower.
The diet of the Tyrol last week passed
a bill imposing heavy fines upon persons
found selling any sample of the beauti
ful but rare Alpine flower called edel
weiss, which has been pulled up by the
roots on the mountains. A similar act
was passed seven year3 ago by the diet
of Salzburg, with a view to the preserva
tion of the edelweiss plant, which is
threatened with extinction in the Aus
trian Alps. In the Salzburg district the
success of this legislation is, unfortu
nately, not encouraging.
Great Season for IIerrlns.
The herring fishing season on the Sus
quehanna river is finished, and the catch
has been unprecedented. The pack will
amount to'over 00,000 barrels of salted
fish. The season open April 8 and closed
May 10. One fisherman caught 100 bar
rels of the fish with a dipnet in the out
let lock of the canal. It has been no un
common thfng this season to take 200,
000 herring at a haul of one of the large
