'There is one thing that clouds inj.

journey in a great covere-i wagon we
sterned on the banks of a river, lhere,

for mother had died, and there fathet
all alone had buried her."
"Was there a great bluff along the
river and a road running near the spot
through the woods?"
'Yes; I can see the scene now pictnred

"Then, my dear madam," said Mrs,

Ciirioua 1'hU- of a Shark.
The steamship Kansas City, of the
Oeean Steamship company, which ar
rived here on Wednesday night from
Savannah, caused the death of a live
foot shovel nosed shark in a somewhat
unusual manner. Off Hatteras Shoals,
steaming along at the rate of seventeen
miles au hour, the steamship ran its cut
water into the shark, striking the fish

shark was unable to extricate itself
owing to the intense pressure of the
In a few moments the 6harp stem had

in turn breaking under the strain, the
shark assumed the shape of an inverted
V, hanging on either side of the bow
like an old ropo, the head and tail being
still connected by the muscles of the
back. Caught thus, the shark was
towed along by the steamship for some
COO miles, and until the stop at quaran

of the water, the body slowly sank.

A Toy Industry Festival.
A remarkable token o.the importance
of the toy iudustry in the ancient city of
Nuremburg is afforded by t. great
gathering in one of the public dlls at a
banquet i:i celebration of the completion
of the SOO.OtiOth model steam engine by
a well known maker. Among the guests
were the heads of the municipality and
several industrial and con jnercial cor
The little model vnnc- marks this
stage in the toy making industry of the

the latest improvements. It was adorned
with a laurel wreath, and exhibited m

the progress in construction, with

this factory alone has also -turned out
more than o23,000 inaic lanterns. Lon

The electric welding of street railway
rails, as a eubstitute for fish plates, haa
been the subiect of experiment for som

tirely successful, and it is possible to
weld by electricity two pieces of steel of

long can be had if required. The testa

WHY YOUNG PEOPLE FIND SINGLE
BLESSEDNESS SO COMFORTABLE.
If They ivt Married They Would llavo
to Malta a tirent Many Saeri flee, or So
Tlit-y Think, and as a Result They
Keep Away from the Knot of Hymen.
It is an oft repeated remark that New
York ia the finest phice in the republic
to live in if you are rich. But it ia
worse than the meatiest euburb. th
dreariest of western "boom towns," th
dullest country village if you are jkk r.
This is the criticism of the person who
does not contemplate life as a possibil
ity or an ugreeable jiossibility without
society, in the narrow sense of the word;
without the pleasures that come from
money, without the social standing that
a good bank account gives, without lx
ing able "to keep up with the proces
sion" of those who are well dressed, welt
fed, well situated and well off.
Singularly enough, those who demand
these things who will not accept mar
ried life without them are generally
not well supplied with this world's goods.
People who have been rich all their live
do not realize what it means to go with
out their luxuries. But people who have
been jioor know just the wretchedness
of having to wear patched boots and go
without lunch; of having to walk long
distances, because car fare "mounts up;"
of having to refuse nice invitations, be
cause they have no clothes or no means
of returning proffered civilities. To
these, poverty is a bitter thing, and they
loathe it. Marriage, unless it means
escape from carping cares of this kind,
they eschew as a hoiieless evil. Better
endure those trials that we have than
fly to others that we know not of, they
So thinks the everyday, gentlemanly,
good looking, entirely personable joung
man of thirty, who draws an income of
from two to four thousand a year, and
is asked out all over because he dances
admirably and is good to look at, and
never does anything gauche. So, also,
thinks the pretty, well bred, well dressed,
moderately bright girl of twenty-five,
whoso father spends six thousand a year
and has five children. Both of these know
ust the way they want their lives to go.
Ever since childhood they have associ
ated with companions who havo had
more money than they have, and they
know how nice it is to be well off. To
be rich or to remain as wo are, that is
their motto. "When we make the great
move," they both think, "we make it to
better ourselves materially, or we don't
make it at all."
They do not want to bo millionaires,
but they do not want to be really pinched
anywhere. Their house must be large
enough and be comfortable. It must be
well fitted up no "sheet by night and
tablecloth by day for them. There
must be servants enough to run it. This
girl who has always been comfortably
placed, but never luxuriously has no
intention of landing herself down to do
mestic cares, of dusting her own draw
ing room and turning up hems in her
own table linen. No; all that must be
done for her. She has made her own
dresses and trimmed her own hats all
her girlhood, and she wants, when she
irries, to change all that. Better to
go on doing it in your own home, where
it is all you have to worry over, than to
do it in your husband's, where yon
have to keep the house and take care of
children as well.
Thus the young lady reasons and re
jects her suitors with a peculiar and good
humored indifference. She has made
up her mind that she will not marry a
man who has a cent under five thousand
a year, and is not above telling this to
the soupirants, who take the hint and
strive to realize the ideal. The j-oung
lady is quite frank. She is not in the
least ashamed of her worldliness or de
sirous of hiding it under a veil of at
tractive coyness. She is not mercenary
It is not riches that she demands com
fort, that is all. If she is comfortable
she will continue to be a very nice, at
tractive person, but if she has to scrimp
anc struggle and fight over ten cent
pieces, and' turn her old clothes, and
have her shoes patched, she will not be
responsible for her temper. She is a
fin de siecle to her finger tips sensible
where she might be romantic, practical
where she once would have been impas
sioned a person who is bound to make
a success of her life and keep it on the
lines that she regards as the best.
The young man of her kind holds pre
cisely the same views. Life with a be
loved object sounds very charming, but
it is not to be indulged in unless the in
comes of himself and the beloved object
foot up to from five to Bix thousand per
annum. The beloved object on three
thousand a year is too expensive a lux
ury. He cannot afford it. What might
have been a courtship dwindles to a
mild friendship. Not infrequently he
tells the lady of his sad predicament and
how impossible a matrimonial alliance
would be on his 6alary. She condoles
with him and they become friends, for
no violent fires burn in their hearts and
friendship comes quite easily to them.
Marriage would mean a series of sacri
fices that neither is willing to make

Symbols of the Thunderbolt.
The different nations of the world,
both ancient and modern, have employed
various nymbols to represent the fires
that flash from tho thundercloud. Tho
Chaldeans symbolized it with a trident,
tho learned Babylonians used a human
arm for the same purpose. The bas-reliefs
of Nimrud and Malthia, the work
of later and more refined Assyrian J
artists, show the trident doubled or
transformed into a trifid fascicle. This
triumph of the classic art secured for
the ancient Mesojwtamian symbol tho
advantage over all other representations
of the thuiiderliolt.
Tho Greeks represented the storm fire
with the features of a bird of prey
Later on, when they had begun the use
of the Asiatic form of the symbol, they
put it in the claws of an eagle and inado
it the scepter of Zeus. Gaul received
the symbol from Italy, but 6oon altered
it to the familiar two headed hammer
6een on the Gallo-Roman monuments.
The same symbol is seen on amulets
found in Germany, Scandinavia and
Brittany. St. Louis Republic.
The Color of the Complexion.
If Mrs. Emily Crawford'B deductions
are true, beauty and such a hitherto dif
ficult achievement as a complexion are
mere matters of determination. Mrs.
Crawford says that Frenchwomen used
to be brown as a lierry; but of late years
they are conspicuous for their marble
charm. The expression is Mrs. Cra
ford's. This, she says, is simply the
suit of their intense desire for beauty i
pallor; it is altogether a matter of I
Iower. It is elsewhere admitted t t
the Parisian has been giving a great deal
of consideration to her diet, and has
found that poultry and milk are better
allies, so far as her skin is concerned,
than butcher's meat and wine. San
Perfumes the Horse Liken.
There are some perfumes that are very
grateful to horses, however little credit
a horse may commonly receive for pos
sessing delicacy of scent. Horse train
ers are aware of the fact and make use
of their knowledge in training stubborn
and apparently intractable animals.
Many trainers have favorite perfumes,
the composition of which they keep a
secret, and it is the possession of this
means of appealing to the horse s
a;stheticism that enables so many of
them to accomplish such wonderful re
sults. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

Cnemies of the Salmon Fisheries.
Seals and sea lions are a great nui
sance to the 6almon fishermen. At the
mouth of the Columbia river they watch
the gill nets and grab the caught salmon
by the tiiroats, devouring those parts
which they regard especially as tidbits.
Bears are very fond of salmon and catch
a great many of them in the streams.
They eat only the heads. Washington
