Moral: Vou can't get the best out cf anything, unless
the best is in it; and the best has to be put in bchoru it
can be taken out. Now, we have a rule to test those
sarsaparillas with a big "best" on the bottle. "Tell us
what's put in you and we'll decide for ourselves about
the best." That's fair. But these modest sarsaparillas
say: "Oh I we can't tell. It's a secret. Have faith in
the label." . . . Stop I There's one exception ; one sar
saparilla that hS no secret to hide. It's Ayer's. If you
want t6 know what goes into Ayer's Sarsaparilla, ask

He Left a Fortune in California to
Become Klch ia Booth Africa.
Another strauge discovery baa coma
to light In the Hibernla Hank depoaitw
that have been neglected for many
years by their owners. It appears that
Jeremiah Penderguat, long mourned as
dead. Is alive and prosperous In Bouth
Africa, where he has made a fortune.
It Is learned that he ban apparently for
gotten that 1 12,000 await him In the Hi
bernla Rank of San Francisco.
The hlntory vf Pendergasfs deposit
Is one of the moat interesting of all the
old estates that have lain unclaimed for
years In the vaults of Ban Franciaco
banks. In the first place it now amounts
to $12,000. tKltif the largest sum of all
the unclaimed deposits; and, In the next
place. It has perhaps been more widely
advertised and more g"iierally claimed
than any other sum In the list. Strange
ly, however, nearly all the Pendeiyasta
fc.ive the nl owner seem to have heard
or this money and laid claim to It, while
the original depositor has lived quietly
lu South Africa all thine years, heedless
of the fact that his gold lies In the bonk
awaiting the owner's orders. Attorney
Osinr T. Shuck has Just located the
original Jeremiah PendergaHt In the
Congo Free State, where the old man
lives In great luxury, having amassed
a large fortune since he went there aa
one of the pioneer of nearly twenty
years ago.
"Pendergaat went to South Africa In
1S7K," said Attorney Shuck, "being one
of the leaders of a California colony.
He left a good sum In the bank here,
since which time uo one has ever heard
of him until I got word that be was well
and rich. The nearest trace we ever
got of bliu here was that he was at the
old Empire Hotel on Pacific street soinf
time between lKtWand 1870. Hundreds
of alleged helm have leen after the ro
tate, but It will no doubt, soon reach
the original depositor."
A strange fact about the case Ih H at
the public administrator recently peti
tioned for letters of administration, al
leging In a general way that IVuder
gast died some years ago In Nevada.
Judge Slack went so far as to appoint
Atorney J. J. Dwyer to represent the
alweiit heirs, but Attorney Shuck sug
gested rbnt Pendergaat still lived,
whereupon the letters of administration
were withheld.
It Is quite probable that the claimants
were really Induced to believe that
thHr ancestor died In Nevada, where
nn old miner named Pendergast ex
pired In a fire that destroyed his cabin
and himself at midnight In a mountain
fiisrnrtw. They will soon learn, bow
ever, that the true Jeremiah Pender
gast, who left a few thousand dollara
In the Hibernla Hunk In 1W3S, went to
Bouth Africa with only a little money,
and Is now griwsled with age, but gilded
with gold alo. The real heirs to this
strange pioneer lived In Massachusetts.
The bunkers and attorneys, as well
as the public administrator, are won
dering why the pioneer of '49 deserted
Inn gold here, even to become a pioneer
In the African gold fields. At any rate,
the money Is safe. The distribution of
a living man's funds has been prevent
ed, and $12,000 now awaits the owner's
orderSan Francisco Chronicle.

Caique Distinction of a Man Now
Almost Forgotten,
C rover Cleveland to-day is know n aa
the twenty-third President of the Uul
ted States. He was lu his first term
the twenty-first President, so it would
seem that the chair of the chief execu
tive has been occupied by only twenty
two men. This 1 what general history
There have been twenty-three men In
the office of President, and one of them
wore the honor for only one day. Ilia
name Is completely forgotten now.
March 4, lx4!t, came on Sunday, a day
that the constitution does not recognize
as legal In the transaction of such offi
cial business as administering the oath
of office. On that day at noon, Presi
dent Polk's term of otlice ended, and
President-elect Zachiiry Taylor could
not take his place, or at least did not
think he could. The pmsjiect of the
country lielng without an otticlal bend
for the twenty-four hours or there be
ing doubt nlxmt who would be the head,
created discussion in Congress aud in
the press.
When On. Tnylor arrived In Wash
ington a few days before his Inaugura
tion, he was besought to take the oath
of ollice on Sunday so as to prevent con
fusion and what some persons believed
to be danger. It was lu the hot days
of the "Free Boiler" and "Hum Storm
ers" and the storm of slavery was brew
ing. Ihirliig Saturday and Saturday
night then; were a half dozen fights In
Congress. The capltol was a camp of
violence, but (leu. Taylor held out that
he would not become President on Sun
day. Imvld H. Atchison, of Missouri, wns
president pro tempore of the Seriate,
and It wns held by Congress that the
functions of President must devolve
upon him from Sunday noon till Mon
day noon, and for these twenty-four
hours he has had the distinction of be
ing President of the I'nlted States, hav
ing nil the functions and powers of that
,!!;. The oath of the ollice was not
administered to him, for the same rea
son that it was not immediately ad
ministered to Ceil. Taylor; but he, be
ing virtually Vice President, it was not
considered necessary.
That President Atchison considered
himself President there can be no
doubt, for on Monday morning, when
the Semite reassembled, he sent to the
White House for the seal of the great
ollice, and signed one or two olliclnl
papers as President. These were some
small acts in connection with the In
auguration that had been neglected by
President Polk.
Hut there was much fun and good
natured badinage Indulged In among
Atchison's friends and himself during
his short presidential term. He was n
Democrat, while the President-elect
was n Whig. A majority of the Senate
was Penioerntle, and his friends jok
ingly proposed to Ii I tn to usurp the ollice
by calling the army to his back and
preventing "old Ironsides" from be
ing sworn In. If any such thing had
been seriously contemplated (!en. Tnv
Ior was too much the Idol of the army
to let 11: be successful.
Hnn (Jen. Taylor been nn unpopular
man and had Atchison had the cha me
ter and ambition of a dictator, with a
friendly army, Congress and timid Su
preme Court, President Atchison's
name would probably not have been so
soon forgotten and the constitutional
day of Inaugurating the President of
the United States would have been
changed so that It would never again
fall on Sunday.
According to nn almanac maker of
the time, the next Inauguration to fall
on Sunday will be March 4, liilM. and
just, a century from the date of Presi
dent Atchison's term of office there
will be another Sunday March 4, and
following this will be March 4, 1!T7.
(rover Cleveland was but inaugurated
on S.itnnbiy. The century gains n
whole day from the lenp year scraps
left over. This day Is added to the last
year, lDiifl. If this (nlculatin Is correct
the constitutional day of Inauguration
Is not changed, the twentieth century
may have three "one day only" Presi
dents. New York Press.
Terrors of a Crowd.
Apropos of the tragedy, In Itself bar
baric, caused by the struggle! of a vast
unwieldly crowd, that concluded the
barbaric splendors of the Moscow cor
onation, James Payn says: "No one
who has not experienced something of
Its power can Judge of the horrors of
pressure freed from scientific control.
What holocausts would have been
made of the crowds that pressed to
see the executions before Newgate In'
old times but for the barriers that
were erected to stern the human cur
rent! At the fete In the Champ do
Mars In Paris In 1K27, numbers of peo
ple lost their lives stundlng, and were
carried about hither and thither In the
crowd all night, side by side with their
living, companions."
Holdters Have a Klght to Vot.
In some of the Kuropenn countries
the line between the soldier and the
citizen Is very hnrply drawn, the
former not liclng allowed nny of the
rights or privileges of citizenship. In
our own land of freedom a citizen Is
none the less so from the fact that he
Is serving his country In the army. Any
soldier, on complying with the registra
tion laws and In other ways fulfilling
legal requirements, has the same right
to vote as though he were following the
business by which he made his living
before he enlisted.

Great Danger.
In that coming naval battle between
the steel fleets of two first-class powers,
to which nautical authorities have been
looking forward ever since modern bat
tleships became the mighty engines of
problematical forces that they are, the
military mast and fighting top will play
a deadly part and be the etation of dan
ger and heroism.
As everybody knows, the old mast,
the mast of yards and sails, has van
ished from the modern ship of war.
The Newark Is the only modern tdilp la
the United States navy which has sail
carrying niastn. The place of the mast
that was erected for sail-carrying pur
poses is taken on the modern warship
by a steel tower, which rises from the
deck to support one or mayle three or
four circular galleries, where rapid fire
or machine guns are placed, which, lu
time of action, pour their hail of bullets
at the decks and ports of the hostile
The object Is to kill the gunners, for

the ninst tumbling, It is not probable
that any h: will come out of an en
gagement with lis military mast stand
ing. The shooting away of the ma:U
will, of course, mean the death of every
man in the lighting tops. Men sent
there will know as they climb the dark
ladder to their stations that they go to
almost certain death, and will have only
one duty before Ihi-iii, to kill as many
of the enemy irf; they can before the

Men who In turrets and sponsous
below are handling the great guns have
every hope of life and victory before
them, but the men In the tops go to
their duty wllh no such hopes and ex
pectations. To man the fighting tops,
in action will be a kind of martyrdom
especially hard to endure.
To perform deeito of valor In the face
of contending armies or to sulfer with
fortitude in the gaze of admiring thou

inside a steel post and work away at
such an unpoctieal mechanical device
as a rapid-fire or machine gun until such
time as it may please the enemy to blow

other thing.
