HORSES ON TOBOGGAN.
A FREE RIDE DOWN A TOBOO

ThM HMi Bvk on the Down
ERE la a street car
for the accommo
dation of horses
which Is the very
latest thing in the
west Such a car is
now in operation in
Denver, and it Is
pronounced a great
success by all able
to give an opinion
on the subject. Tb
horses themselves are dumb, but If
their Judgment could be had it woulil
no doubt be favorable.
By the introduction of cable and elec
tric motive power, the bicycle and tiie
automatic carriage, man has done much
of late to relieve the afflictions of the
euulne race. But this latest move, that
of taking the horse up off the ground
and placing him on board a car so that
he may have a ride Just like the other
passengers is a radical departure In
deed. It must be confessed, however, that
these free rides are given In a spirit
of thrift. The managers of the road
find that by this means they save wear
and tear on the horses' hoofs, and that
they are thus able to remain In the ser
vice longer. The plan is a very simple
one, and like all other simple things
that are new it makes you want to
know why It was never thought of be
The riding car for the horses con
sists of a platform mounted on small
wheels, protected at the sides by a
sufficiently high railing, while the
front and rear are provided with gates.
These permit the horses to get on and
off the car without backing.
When the regular passengar car has
been drawn to the top of the long as
cent, the "horse car" is hooked to the
forward end, the horses are driven
aboard, and by a few deft turns of the
brake, the descent is made safely.
At first the horses showed Bome hesi
tation about embarking on what ap
peared to be a perilous adventure. But
they soon became accustomed to it, and
are said to even enjoy the experience,
expressing their pleasure by broad
smiles and prolonged whinnies.
There is no reason why this plan
should not be adopted with profit else
where. There are many car lines
which run for almost their entire
length on more or less Bteep inclines.
The additional force required to be ex
erted in drawing a car up hill is
turned into propelling force when the
car begins the descent This force
might well be employed in giving the
horses a ride, and thus saving wear and
tear on their feet.
It might be supposed that the addi
tional pull imparted to this human pas
senger car,' when on the down grade,
might cause the brake to slip, but this
is not the case. It is only necessary to
make the brake a little more powerful
than that on the ordinary street car.
Having arrived at the foot of the in
cllne, the gate of the horse passenger
car is unfastened, and the animals once
more take their places in the traces,
drawing both cars behind them up the
hill. The entire load is not much heav
ier than a single car on a level street,
as the car in which the horses ride it
MADE A GREAT SUCCESS.
An Editor Who Knew Nothing About
the Business, bnt Made Money.
From the Gvafton Record: I was
talking with a printer the other day
who worked for a number of years at
Farmlngton, Minn., for a man by the
name of Squires. At one time he had
a partner by the name of Farmer, the
firm name being Farmer & Squires.
One day when the press was being
loaded the "&" dropped out, leaving
plain Farmer Squires, and the edition
was run off before it was noticed; Farm
er sold out the next day, but it was
Farmer Squires' paper from that on.
He made a big success out of the pa
per, although he didn't know a four-
pica lead from a two-revolution Hoe,
and he did not do a thing toward run
ning the paper except make contract!
for advertising that was his strong
point; he got hay knives, fanning mills,
sewing machines, pile drivers, washing
machines for advertising; he accepted
all propositions, Including patent med
icine and scholarships. The printer
had to do the rest; he built the fires, set
the type, got the news, attended to the
L -wj)olitlcal and moral end of the papei;
smoked the wedding cigars; chased
over the country on a bay horse after
subscribers, took the blame and looked
happy and the proprietor edited the
trading end. He traded farm machin
ery for cows, hogs, hens, grain, wood,
anything to sell, eat or burn. Once he
had an angry cow tied to the front door
of the printing office that he had traded
a hay rake for. The cow tore the
clothes almost off the mayor of the
town, who rushed into the office so mad
that he forgot to stop the paper, but he
scared the devil so bad that he stopped
his growth. Sometimes there would be
an auction in the office, and Squires
would stand on the bed of the Fairhaven
press and sell a lot of truck so there
would be room In the office to get out
the paper, but he never got stuck on
anything and finally sold out for a big
figure on the strength of his profits,
which gult with him.

A SENATOR'S ADVICE.
Keep Awf frosa Washington m Itt
Tern pta Hobs.
I sent a young man to see Senatoi
Morgan at bis home In Washington U
gain his Influence, says a writer In the
New York Press. The boy wanted s
government office of some kind. He
was not in a position to be particular
He would take anything that came to
hand. The senator received him cor
dially, as Is his habit with all men, and
inquired concerning his mission with
Interest "I am willing to do what 1
can for you,'' he said, "and we might
accomplish your desires, but I have
been here In Washington a long time
and would advise you to desist In your
determination to become a department
man. I have watched the careers of
may able young men appointed to gov
ernment offices and can truthfully say
that in the majority of cases they
proved failures. I could not encourage
any young friend of mine to enter the
employment of the government as a
clerk. He is throwing his life away.
He mingles with a fast set, as a rule,
and unless he be of the sternest resolu
tion and the strongest will power he is
likely to succumb to a life of dissipa
tion. There Is little to hope for or ex
pect in such a career. Go back home,
get something to do anything that you
can for the present and in a little
while you will surely be able to make
your way. Here your talents will rust.
You will throw away whatever genius
you may possess. And you will be
haunted always with the fear of dis
missal, through the changes Of the po
litical complexion of the administra
tion. If your heart Is not too strongly
set on this business take an old man's
advice and forget all about it. If you
do one of these days you will thank
The boy came back to me with his
mind fully made up to follow the ad
vice of the senator. He set to work
with a will as messenger In a law office
in this city and Is to-day a member of

WHAT FAST SKATERS REQUIRE,
rhy.lcal Needs of These Who Desire to
Kxcel In Ice Racing.
The typical speed-skater has a short
body, capacious, round chest, with well-
develoDed back: his thighs are strong
and very long, as are also his legs. His
feet are large and flat. His weak points
are his calves, due to the long, flat
skate to which his flattened foot is so
closely bound. The muscles of his chest
are not exercised, and his arms, held
lying idly along his back, are unused
except in an occasional spurt, when
they are brought down and swung
straight from the shoulder. They say
that they catch less wind held that
way, and that the position is restful
to the tense extensors 01 tne bacK.
This is no doubt true, but the result
is disastrous to symmetrical develop
ment This type of figure Is seen at its
best In such skaters as the Donahues,
McCormick, the old-time professional,
Who still skates a fiwt. race, although
now 40 years of age, and In Wilson
Breen, a professional, who has been a
winner of much gold and glory by
means of his long legs and powerful
thighs. The conclusion that srjeed skat
ing alone Is not a good exercise to de
velop a well-built, symmetrical man
will be patent to anyone who reviews
the facts. If Indulged In it should be,
as done by McCulloch, In conjunction
with other forms of athletics which
bring into action the muscles of the
arm, calf, shoulders and chest.
CatcMng Whales by Net.
In New Zealand, wnere the old-fashioned
methods In use In most other
whale fisheries have been abandoned in
favor of nets, which are now used for
the capture in those waters of these
leviathans of the sea, the nets are made
jf two-inch manllla rope and are so con
structed that galvanized Iron rings take
the place of the knots In the ordinary
nets. The mesh is a six-foot one and
the ropes forming it are spliced into
the rings. The nets are made in six
sections, each ten fathoms square, with
two ten-gallon barrels as floats to each
inctlon. When setting the net the sec
tions are joined together with line just
strong enough to bear the ordinary
3irain to which they are liable to be
subjected, so that when a whale gets
meshed he tears away the section In
which he is fast. While he is trying to
et rid of the net the ' whaleboats,
which are always waiting, dart along
side and harpoon him. London Tit

The Devil's Dozen.
In all the civilized countries of the
world thirteen is referred to as being
lomebody's "dozen." In America, Aus
tralia, Great Britain (present day) and
ieveral other lands that number is said
to be a "baker's dozen." In Italy It is
referred to as the "cobbler's dozen,"
there being a tradition that there was
formerly a law which compelled cob
Dlers to put twelve tacks or nails
round the edge of a boot heel. Finally,
when nails became cheap, a center nail
was driven for "luck." That nail was,
f course, the thirteenth, and in order
:o break the spell of that unlucky num
oer, the number in the heel was never
ipoken of as being more than an even
dozen. In old England thirteen was
sailed "the devil's dozen," but exactly
why is not known.
Mules a"d St. Louis.
Attention has been frequently called

in one year sounds like a Munchausen

Sciatic Rheumatism and Its Cure
From the Jazette, Burlington, Iowa.
The story of Mr. Tabor's nearly fatal
attack of sciatic rheumatism is familiar
to his large circle of acquaintances, bnt
for the benefit of others and those simi-
larlv afflicted The Gazette has investi

Mercur, Utah's New El Dorado. Won
derful Development of the Camp
Floyd Mining District.
The Camp Floyd Mining District of Utah, dis
tant but 4'J miles tjom Salt Lake City, is now
attracting the attention of the mining world as
the only western rival of Cripple Creek, Colo.
The district has had a moat remarkable history.
The town of l.ewlston rose, flourished, and passed
into decay twenty-five years ago, on the very
spot on which Mercnr has been built within the
last eighteen mouths. It was renowned as a sil
ver camp in '71 by the development of the Sparrow-hawk
and Last Chance mines, which pro
duced over $1,000,000 In the white metal. At that
time there were 1,(109 people in Lewiston, and the
district was very lively, but the rich pockets
huvlng worked out. Lewiston's fame beican to
wane. The next big strike in the district, one
that Is yet talked of by old-timers, was the Car
rie Steele, from 8 pocket In which some parties
scraped ont ss.OOO in about three months time.
This caused great excitement, so much so that
In '72 and 73 the hill was swarming with pros
pectors. Then the camp again declined until '79

and so, wneu it was aoauuoueu. m mm ablu
tion was called to the McArthur Forrest cyanide
process, and a test of the ore was made in Den
ver with such elaborate results that the old Sparrow-hawk
or Marion mine was brought out of a
$10,(lii(i or $50,000 indebtedness and put on a divi
dend paying basis. The formation at Mercur is
very Blmllar to the region about Johannesburg
in South Alrlca. except that the Camp Floyd ore
hnrlies are arirer ana rlcner ueoiogisis anu
mineralogists differ as to the origin and forma
tion of the ore body, some claim inn three dis
tinct gold-bearing veins while others seem to
favor the single blanket vein theory. On one
point, however, all agree, that, no such gold de
iiiislt. has ever before been discovered. In the
Mercur mine, recently bonded for $1,500,000, the
ore bodies average $15.00 in gold to the ton,
while some assays run into the hundreds mark.
With the aid of the cyanide process this ore is
mined and milled at an average cost of $2 50 to
$3.00 per ton, leaving a profit of $12.00 to $12.60
per ton. On this basis the mine has. In the year
jnst passed, paid dividends to the extent of
(hiii The adio nlnK properties, the Golden Gate,
Marlon and Uevser are equally as rich. The vein
nr veins have already been traced from the clue-
ti of mines at Mercnr. to Sunshine, a distance
of six miles, where the Sunshine miue and mill,
another large property, is located, together with
numerous claims of less magnitude. In the Mer
cnr mine alone 200.000 tons of ore are now
blocked out, with an average value of $14.00 per
ton, making a total value of $2,100,000; the Gol
den Gate is able to show 100,000 tons of higher
value than the Mercnr, while the Sunshine has In
sight more ore than either of the above, but of
lower value. If the discoveries recently made
twelve miles west of Mercur and far to the south
an nncoverlnir of the same vein, then there Is
strong evidence that the great deposit covers an
area of from 100 to 150 square miles. It Is hardly
.nnnomhl that all nortionsof the vein will yield
profitable values, although that Is the belief ot
many, nut it is quite wuuiu in ii"!ij".
hiiitiea no barren snot has yet been touched.
Keening in mind the fact that any ore exceeding
$3.00 In value per ten, can be mined and milled
i a. hnmUome nroflt. there can be no question
but that the Camp Klovd district wil yet be one
of the largest gold-producing camps In the world.
Owing to the mildness of the climate, prospect
ing can be conducted at all seasons of the year,
anil at the n resent writing vigorous work is be-
tnir done nt manv mints In the district. The re-
snlt of this work will show Itself during the com
lug year in the opening ot the ore bodies In var
ious localities throughout the district, and num
hera rr-inlins that are now mere prospects will
undoubtedly become paying mines in the near
furnre. Nowhere at the present time can there
be found a field for speculation wnicn win exceeu
that of the Camp Floyd district.
Mercur or the Cnmp Floyd Mining district Is
best reached via the itio Grand Western Railway
to Halt Lake City. For further particulars or
