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.

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 Times. 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 paroxysms. 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 death. 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.

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 canal. 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. Robert Ball in Fortnightly Review. When Finished. Busy persons, forced to defend them selves from interminable talkers, who have little to say, can appreciate a hint to which Henry IV of France once re sorted. A parliamentary deputy called upon him and made a long speech. The king listened patiently for a time, w;u 11U UCV1UCU LLUlb 1X9 VlMLOi J do well to condense his remarks.

W Then it is finished it will be a good tiung, will it not?" x es, replied tne man or many words, not guessing what was coming next. "Well, monsieur, that is just the way with your discourse," was the king's mild observation. Youth's Companion. "The Begats." 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 Judah," and so on to the end, some forty-two generations, without a mis take. London Tit-Bits. The city of Paris has 87,655 trees in its streets, and each tree represents a cost to the city of 175 francs. This makes in round numbers 3,000.0K worth of trees in the streets. An investigator has discovered that the greater number of congressmen are undersized, and a traveler in the west reports that St. Louis people are shorter of stature than easterners. A Physician's Fees. South Africa responds to modern in novations. A recent traveler in Kaffir land tells this incident: As we were upsaddling, there passed us a man driving a small flock of goats and several head of cattle. This was the husband of a lady physician who is ruining the practice of the local witch doctors, and he was taking home his wife's fee for attending a patient. Youth's Companion. Too Previous. "And you won't marry me, Kit?" "I won't." "No use talking about it any more?""' "Not a bit. It won't do any good, Hank." The Oklahoma youth, hurt and angry, reached under his chair for his hat. "It's my own fault, I s'pose," he grumbled. "I ort to have waited till we'd got a little better acquainted." "Yes, that's alont the size of it. Hank,7 assented tlie young woman cold ly.

A laborer in a rough felt hat and long smok walked the other day into the Shakespeare library, and after looking attentively for some time at one of the custodians, went up to him and said, "I say, zur, be you Mr. Shakespeare as I've heer'n speak ov?" The custodian ex plained to Hodge that he was not the gentleman referred to. London Telegraph. Accurate. In a breach of promise case, the other day, the lady on the stand said that when a friend suggested that she wonld make him a good wife, he answered: "Hem!"

This reminds one of the accu rate witness who s.wore that some one had called over the banisters, "Tom. Tom," or words to that effect. San Francisco Argonaut. The Thumb an Index to Character.
