flaty of Game In Maine.
There h;s not been a 3'ear for some
time when game was as plenty and
when so little game has been killed
and destroyed as during the past win
ter. One reason is that the snow in
many localities has not been deep, and
at the same time it has been hard, hole
ing up the deer and caribou and givlog
them a chance to protect themselves by
flight. Another reason is that the
guides and hunters have learned that it
is for their interest to leave the game
alone, especially during the deep snows.
I have made it a point to see many of,
them in the early part of the winter,
and tried to make them understand that
it is for their interest for us to keep a
good stock of fish and game, as they
would get more business daring the
The most of the game that has been
killed tho past winter has been killed in
the back settlements, hunters using
dogs to catch deer. There has been a
story of ninety moose killed near our
border line, in township 5, range 18. 1
believe the most of this yarn is false, 1
have been within a day's walk of the
township this winter and 1 did not learn
of any such business. In fact there are
not moose enongh in that locality. It is
near the Canada line, and this same re
port comes from there every year. Cor.

Beekeepers and the Government.
Foreign bees without pedigrees may
be admitted to the United States free of
duty. The secretary of the treasury lias
so decided. Until the last tariff bill was
passed bees from abroad came in gratis,
as "animals imported for breeding pur
poses." The ilcKinley law declared
that this ruling should only apply to an
imals "regclarly entered in recognized
herd books. Accordingly, bees were
assessed 20 per cent, ad valorem, lie
cause they had no iedigrees. The lee
keepers protested and carried their

declared that bees were "unmailable."
on the ground that they would be likely
to sting people if they got loose. The
beekeepers secured the recall of this reg
ulation, by proving that the packages
employed could not be broken. Wiish

Little Fear of Indian Troubles.
A gentleman at Rosebud agency writes
that the reports of dissatisfaction among
the Indians there have been greatly ex
aggerated. Since his arrival there two
weeks ago he has traveled quite exten
sively through the various Indian camps
and thinks the Indians never exhibited
a more peaceful frame of mind than at
present. Never did they take hold of
work more readily or more extensively,
and never did they take more interest in
the care of their stock than the past
winter, as can plainly be seen by the
condition of horses and cattle this spring.
So far as dissatisfaction with rations is
concerned, if there is any such, the white
emploj-ees hear nothing of it. Cor. Min
There has recently been some inquiry
as to whether the Confederate govern
ment coined any gold. The question
was referred to the lion. Charles C.
Jones, Jr., of Augusta, who telegraphs
as follows: "The Confederate States, as
I now remember, coined and issued no
gold. A few experimental half dollars
in silver were struck, but they did not
pass into circulation." Charleston News

A Circus Tumbler lias a Fall.

Neff is an old circus tumbler, and the
agility learned in tho ring saved his life,

the air ten feet, alighting on his feet
without a scratch."

A Cowboy's Sense of Ilnmor.
A globe trotting Englishman told me
this story: "To show you that the cow
boys are not as bad as they have been
painted in fact, that they are opposed
to anything like lawbreaking and vio
lence let me relate an incident. There
was a poor clerk standing up over his
books at a desk in a shop on the main
street, and there was a cowboy riding
up and down the street. Well, the cow
boy saw the clerk and his sense of hu
mor was aroused by the idea of shooting
at him, d you know. Those cowboys
have a very remarkable sense of humor.
So the cowboy ups with his pistol, d'you
know, and he shoots the poor clerk right
through the head, killing him instantly.
"Well, now, that sort of thing is very
distinctly frowned upon by cowboys, as
a rule, and in this case the cowboys held
a meeting and resolved that the fellow
with the lively bat dangerous sense of
humor should be hanged at once. They
put a rope around his neck, and there
being no tree anywhere in sight they
hung him to the side of a Pullman as
the train came rolling in. I've seen a
number of occurrences of that sort,
which makes me quite positive in stat
ing that though they are a very mm
sort of beggars they are really not a bad
lot." Julian Ralph in Harper's Weekly.
A Laxy, Though Shrewd Fellow.
Tulkinson a barrister and bachelor
combined, by the way is a very sys
tematic man, The other day he had his
house fitted with electrical appliances,
and giving instructions to his servant
Joseph, he said:
"Now I want you to understand,
Joseph, that when 1 ring once that
means for you, and when I ring twice
that means for Maggie, the housemaid.
Joseph, who is the laziest wretch that
ever accepted wages he did not earn,
bowed respectfully and withdrew. A
little later the bell rang. Joseph never
moved. Presently it rang again, and
according to instructions Maggie came
hurrying to her master, who was very
"Why didn t that rascal, Joseph, come
when I rang for him?" said the bar
rister bachelor disgustedly.
"Why, sir, answered Maggie, ."Jo
seph is busy in the office reading your
newspaper. When he heard the first
ring he said to me, 'Now, Maggie, wait
until he rings the second time, and then
it will be you he wants.' " London Tit-
Strang Cave Dwellers In Spain.
At a meeting of the Royal Geograph
ical society, of Madrid, Dr. Bide gave an
Eccount of his exploration of a wild
district in the province of Caceres,
which he represented as still inhabited
by a strange people who speak a curious
patois and live in caves and inaccessible
retreats. They have a hairy skin and
have hitherto displayed a Btrong repug
nance to mixing with their Spanish and
Portugese neighbors. Roads have lately
been pushed into the district inhabited
by the "Jurdes," and they are begin-
rung to learn tne ijasmian language
and attend the fairs and markets.

The Growth of Railroad Mileage.
In 1830 there were twenty-three miles
of railway in operation in the United
States. By 1S33 the mileage had in
creased to 229 miles, and in 1835 tht
country had 1,093 miles of railroad. Tht
first through railroad from the ear
westward was completed in 1842 between
Boston and Albany, connecting at the
latter place with the Erie canal. In the
same year the last link of the line from
Albany to Buffalo was opened. At the
end of 18-18 the total mileage of all the
railroads in the country was 5,090 miles,
or about 500 miles more than there are
now in the state of Nebraska. Edward

The Flute Is Very Old.
The flute is very old in its origin, but
the flute of today is different from that
of the ancients. It has been improved
upon from time to time, and the old
people would probably fail to recognize
it now. The flageolet, which is some
what similar, is credited to Juvigny

vAbijan btone was a Vermont fanner
who had a great fondness for horses.
He often said that "thaout no disre
spect t human bein's, it did appear's ef
some hosses bed full as much sense as
th common run o folks." His conver
sation was tinged by this belief, and he
drew many an illustration from his fav
orite animals. On one occasion this
habit of his was the cause of much con
fusion to a young man to whom Mr.
Stone was talking.
Tho young man was a professional
musician who had been spending part
of the summer at a neighboring farm
house, and had had the audacity to fall
in love with Mr. Stone's pretty daughter
Jenny. He was listening to the farmer's
various reasons for opposing his suit
one summer evening, just before his re
turn to the cit3'.
"For one thing," said Abijah Stone,
"you like all kinds o new fangled mu
sic, an want t be playin it all th whole
durn time; naow my Jenny, she'd ruther
hear 'Home, Sweet Home,' or somethin
o that gen'ral style."
"Ah," said the pianist, blandly but
firmly, "I should educate your daugh
ter's musical taste, Mr. Stone. I should
lead her graudally from simple melodies
up to the great Wagner."
"Was that piece you played t' th' con
cert in Taown hall by Mr. Wagner?"
"it was, replied tne pianist, with a
glow of reminiscent pride in his late per
wen, men, saia sit. stone, witn u
peculiar expression at the corners of his
mouth, "you might lead my Jenny up t'
him, young man, but I'm inclined t'
think she'd be apt t balk b'fore you got
her there! Youth s Companion.
Gold Which Tourists Leave in Italy.
How does Italy, a country without
gold mines, find the gold to pay the ten
millions a year due to foreign holders of
her bonds, not to speak of the heavy bal
ance against her on her foreign trade?
Mr. Dering, secretary of the British em
bassy in Rome, declares that the only
solution of the question at which it is
logically possible to arrive is that this
amount of gold is annually brought into
the country by foreign travelers, who
swarm during the four seasons of the
year in one part of Italy or the other.
From calculations made by the United
States consular representatives in vari
ous parts of this country it has been
computed that for the last ten years the
average expenditure in Italy of Ameri
can citizens has been about 7,000,000.
Mr. Dering thinks it would scarcely be
an exaggeration to place the collective
expenditure of British, French, Austrian,
German and other foreign travelers at
double this amount.
- This, we are reminded, is irrespective
of the money spent in the country by
the 50,000 to 60,000 pilgrims who annu
ally visit the Eternal City, and of the
amount of which they are the bearers in
the shape of donations to the holy SCO
What He Ordered.
At dinner in St. Joseph, Mo., about
two years ago, with my friend Hile Jo
burn, who is considerable of a wag, in
reply to the "What will you take to
drink, gemmenf of the son of Ham that
served us, 1 ordered a glass of iced tea,
while Hile, who wanted beside the fluid
a little merriment to aid digestion, said:
"You may bring me a glass of lacteal
The ebonized dispenser of grub, with
a confident "All right, boss," left for
the kitchen, where, the supposition is,
he expected to find some one who could
translate Hile's order to his vernacular,
but apparently he was disappointed, for
after a minute s absence he returned
with but one glass that contained
frapped tea and placing that before
me, he turned to Hile with:
"What was dat you wanted, boss?"
My companion answered, "A glass ox
milk, you emphasized fool.
Again the waiter left, and coining
back in a short time with a triumphant
gleam on his face and a glass of milk in
his hand he joyously said, "Dar's your
ox tail fluid, boss." New York Re
Wherein Liverpool Was Desirable.
I was invited by an American friend
of mine in Liverpool to meet Hawthorne
soon after his arrival. His appearance
was very striking, his face handsome
and intellectual, and the large liquid
eyes were full of latent fire and poetical
imagination. He was not only reticent,
but almost taciturn, and when he did
speak was apt to pause and then jerk
out the rest of the sentence. Americans
have, as a rule, a very remarkable facil
ity of expression. Here was a curi
ous exception. I remember condoling
with him for having exchanged Bos
ton, the hub of creation, for uncongenial
Liverpool, when he replied, "Oh, Liver
pool is a very pleasant place" (then a
pause sufficiently long for me to look
surprised, and then suddenly the end of
the sentence), "to get away from."

Ko Safe Deposit Vaults Needed.
There is no trouble about living in the
polar regions except lack of food sup
ply. No danger exists that the provi
sions once placed would be disturbed.
Amons the people who dwell in those
frozen regions a cache is sacred. Noth
ing short of starvation will compel a
native to interfere with one, and even
in such a case he leaves payment behind
for what he takes. Snow shoes and ex
tra clothing are hung up in the open air
in summer and are as safe as the accou

Guarding Against Sparks.

nor with the placing of the carbons.
