How Mine Are Salted.
The gullibility of Tersons who buy
mines has passed into a proverb. It is
said that such properties have actually
leen salted with half melted silver dol
lars and sold to investors, who did not
realize that the precious metal was not
found in nature with the stamp of the
mint upon it. Undoubtedly the most
scientific method of accomplishing this
sort of swindle is to apply the 6ilver in
the shape of a nitrate solution. When
it is ready for use some salt is put into
it and it is squirted over the rock, the
salt causing an immediate precipitation
of the metal in a manner that is equally
conspicuous and deceptive to the eye.

he kills one he dips the fetich in the

signifying money, and attaches to it

Jay Gould'n I Cook.
v.ccasjonauy some jx-rson knocks at
tlie door of Jay Gould's office in the
Western Union building with a copy of
"Ihe History of Delaware County, New
York, by Jay Gould," to sell. An im
pression exists in tlie minds of many
Ieople that JSIr. Gould is desirous of
suppressing this publication as com
pletely as possible, .and that he will pav
almost any price to get possession of the
few stray copies that are left. Resi
dents of Delaware count' are authority
for the statement that several years ago
an agent of Mr. Gould's scoured that
county for these books and bought near
ly all of them at fancy prices. When
ever a copy of this particular history of
Delaware county is displayed in that
county at the xresent day the older resi
dents will advise the owner, "Jist you
take thet down ter New York, an Jay
Gouldll give yer thirty or forty dollars
fer it." It is certain that nobody in Mr.
Gould's office ever heard of his pajing
any such price for one of those books.
And nobody is able to explain why Mr.
Gould should want to suppress the pub
lication, unless it is that he thinks there
is too much sentiment in it for a man of
his present reputation. New York
The Unreasoning Crowd.
Speaking of the queer things to be seen
on the streets, it is really astonishn
how instinctively one person imitates an
other. A man with a passion for psy
chical research has been proving this by
some experiments which are, to say the
least of it, original. Going along about
dusk the other night in advance of a
small party of folk, he suddenly turned
out into the muddy street, as if avoiding
something in front. L nquestioningly
every person behind did the same thing
m spite of tne mire.
It isn't likely that they felt the full
humorous force of the incident m quite
the way he rid, however, when they saw
him face aboat and walk calmly back in
the beaten path. The sheep went to all
the trouble of jumping over a bar of
dust, to be sure, but it would really
seem worth while if human beings could
think a little more independently and
for themselves. The truth of it is, it is
just this blind unreasoning herding to
gether that leads to half the accidents
and panics which are cropping up on all
sides. Boston Transcript.
Hanger in t'ror-.linc tlie Toe.
It is well known that the connection
between the nerves iu tlie feet, and esi
cially those in tho great toe, and tho
brain and general nervous organization
is strong. Dr. Browu-Sequard mentions
a patient who, whenever ho Ixjre the
weight of his body on the toet of his
right foot, In-came violently insane, lie
also sjieaks of another case where pres
sure on the toe caused severe ncrvon-j
These c:ises simply show tlie impor
tance of a projier care of the feet, a por
tion of the lxwly that many iKfplo neg
lect. They think that they can crowd
their feet into tight shoes and abuse
them without serious results. They
can't do it, however. This crowding of
five toes into a space not large enough
for three, results in pressing the joints
out of shape and sometimes making
them inactive and powerless. No man
with his toes half paralyzed can walk
properly. The control of tho toes is
necessary for a springy step. Broad
soles and low heels give room for all the
toes and allow perfect freedom of action
to every muscle. People -who have
false standards of beauty for the feet,
however, insist on wearing a shoe that
is not natural in shape, and the result is
great discomfort, and in some cases
As a consequence of these abuses we
are forgetting how to w;dk projerly.
Perhaps you don't believe it, but just
watch the parade ou Broadway some
fine afternoon and see how few men and
women walk on the street as if thev
were not conscious of tight shoes and
deformed feet. Interview in New York

Antidotes for Snake Poison.
The effect of snake bite depends partly
on the condition of the snake and partly
on that of the person bitten and the part
attacked. No effectual antidote has yet
been discovered. Ammonia and ier
manganateof otassium will not suffice,
although a solution of the latter will
take away the poisonous property of the
snake's venom if it be mixed therewith.
Immediate amputation of a bitten toe
or finger is the best course, as the delay
of a few seconds may suffice to convey
the poison into the patient's circulation.
If from the nature of the part bitten
amputation cannot be performed, a very
tight ligature applied after cauterization
and sucking the part is the best course,
and the administration of stimulants is
generally recommended. Quarterly Review.
Itiee and Wheat at Wedding;.
Throwing rice and wheat at a wed
ding is a relic of an old Roman custom.
and has probably been common in Eng
land since Roman times. Brand gives
several authorities for it. Friend refers
to the case of the bride of Henry VII at
Bristol in I486, when wheat was thrown
upon her with the greeting, "Welcome
and good lnckf'
Rice is used similarly at weddings in
India, and the substitution of this grain
for wheat in our own country of late
years may be partly due to that fact;
but where wheat cannot readily be come
at rice would naturally suggest itself as
a substitute. Notes and Queries.
The Ace of Coal Burning.
I have heard that when King Hudson,
in the zenith of his fame, was asked as
to what his railway's were to do when
all the coal was burned out, he replied,
that by that time we should have learned
how to burn water. Those who are asked
the same question now will often reply
that they will use electricity, and doubt
less think that they have thus disposed
of the question. The fallacy of such
answers is obvious.
A so called "water gas" may no doubt
be used for developing heat, but it is
not the water which supplies the energy.
Trains may be run by electricity, but
all that the electricity does is to convey
the energy from the point where it is
generated to the train which is in mo
tion. Electricity is itself no -more a
source of power than is the rope with
which a horse drags a boat along the
The fact is that a very large part of
the boasted advance of civilization is
merely the acquisition of an increased
capability of squandering. For what
are we doing every day but devising
fresh appliances to exhaust with ever
greater rapidity the hoard of coal.

The late Mr. Conington, professor
of Latin in the University of Oxford,
was noted for his prodigious memory.
At a very early age it began to show it
self. Wheu he was a child of four or
thereabouts he was sleeping one night in
the same room with a relative, when, at
the dead of night, his voice was to be
heard crying out in the darkness from
his little cot in the corner:
"Uncle! Uncle! I know the Begats.
Uncle The what? Go to sleep, niv
boy, you are dreaming.
Child I know the Begats. Listen!
And he began: "Abraham begat Isaac
and L?aac begat Jacob and Jacob legat

forty-two generations, without a mis
