Emeralds, some of which are very

erlnburg, along the banks of the To
kova river, about fifty-two miles from
the capital of the district. Mining for
this precious stone began In 1941, and
at the beginning gave very good re
sults. The first emerald was found by
a peasant named Maxim Kolevnlkow
In 1M8. while he was examining the
roots of a tree which had been uprooted
by a storm. It Is pretty certain, how
ever, that discoveries of the same kind
had already been made In 118. It Is
even possible that finds had been n.ade
prior to them, as the Czar Boris Qo
dounow presented the Venetian engrav.
er, Fronds Ascentl, with a sable fur
and 100 ducats for having cut a large
emerald for a ling. The finest emeralds
were found when these stones were
being mined for the account of the gov
ernment. During this period, that Is,
up to 162, 5,600 pounds were extracted.
The government afterward farmed out
the mines to private parties, who were
not successful. The emeralds of supe
rior quality have been found near the
surface of the soli, while those found In
deep ground were of inferior quality.

Expert Coal Thieves.
Coal stealing from railroads, common
along the lines of all the coal carrying
roads, has been reduced to a system in
Syracuse, the Post-Standard of that
city says. The thieves work hard and
take many risks, not only of detection
but of bodily Injury. Their methods
would be called clever If employed In
an honest business. The heaviest
thieving Is done by men with sacks,
who climb up between the cars of a
slow-moving train, with two or more
bushel sacks concealed under their
clothing. As opportunity offers they
fill a sack and throw It from the train,
to be picked up by accomplices. Anoth
er trick is adopted by men who.
dressed like tramps, board trains as If
with the intention of stealing a ride.
These men travel along from one car
to another, apparently seeking a com
fortable place In which to lie down,
but in their progress they manage to
dislodge a large amount of coal, which
Is subsequently picked up by the wom
en and children who are employed In
the "Industry." Large quantities of
coal are stolen by these and other
methpds, the plunder being disposed of

Senator Stewart of Nevada tells the
following story of his only experience
as a gambler: My nrst and only ex

spring of 1S50. I was a youngster, and
iad wandered Into a resort called lha
El Dorado, at which all sorts of games
were In progress, and on the tables
were plied up huge socks of gold and
sliver coin. I looked on as a green
youth would, and I was attracted tu a
roulette wheel. A miner was betting
100 at every turn, and luck seemed to
come his way. I didn't have murh
money, but concluded I'd take a chance,
and started In with a silver quarter,
following every bet of the miner. I ran

The New Evolution.
"Hsve you noticed that the pretty
girls are the ones who get seats In the
cars, and that the unhandsome ones
generally have to stand up?" asked the
man who doesn't know whether he had
rather be Schopenhauer or Mark Twain.
"Tea, but what of tlt? I don't quits
understand what you are driving at."
"Well, you may not know It, but that
condition Is going to bring about the
salvation of the race."
"Oh, I know. The women are begin
ning to take a decided stand on matters
and a more elevated point of view."
"Don't be an Idiot, l m In earpt.
Tou know the law about the survival
of the fittest snd the process of evolu
tion. Well, It Is evident that the only
way In which an unhandsome lady can
get seat will be to grow handsome.
Now this will have Its effect on thi
third and fourth generations and finally
all our women will be beautiful and
able to get two seats on the cars If they
want them. They simply have to iM
handsome, or they won't get a chancs

A GOOD RECOMMENDATION.
Here It a recommendation which a
tBerkley county, Mass., fanner gave an
incompetent man who had worked fot
ffclm: "This man. . has worked
tor mo day, and I am satisfied."
There are few members of the animal
IrlnaTdom whose work Is more marvel-jin
than that of the geometric spider and
those related to him. Dr. Henry Laney
of Cumberland, Md., who does consider
able experimenting along scientific lines
for a pastime, baa lately been studying
the thelyphonides, a species of spider,
that builds its web over the water along
streams and rivers, with interesting re
suits. After securing the web, which, In Its
natural stats, is comparatively invisi
ble for photographic purposes. Dr. La
ney proceeded first to make it tenacious
by spraying it with an alcoholic solu
tion of shellac from a medical atomizer.
Though still comparatively Invisible
after this treatment, the web could be
handled with ease, without fear of tear
ing It To develop the beautiful work
of the spider. Dr. Laney, with another
atominer, sprayed the web with a so
lution of gallic acid, which made it ap
pear as if frost had settled upon it. The
web now seemed to be covered with the
morning's dew. To complete the effect
Dr. Laney captured the Bpider, put him
in the death box and then coaled him
with shellac Deftly placing the Insect
In the web In a natural position, he was
sprayed with gallic acid. Using black
velvet as a background. Dr. Laney suc
ceeded In photographing one of the most
beautiful and delicate pictures found In
Dr. Laney says: "The spider displays
wonderful Intelligence and mechanical
skill in making these nets. Its instinct
is far above that of the ordinary am-
mal; Indeed, It quite borders on reason.
When a large spider desires to mak
a web for himself and he has some die
tance to stretch it he does not swing
himself, as most people suppose, and
let the wind or his own momentum take
him where it will. He begins his web
by starting the first guy very close up
to the corner of the angle. He attaches
to the other side of the angle, making
a short guy. Each guy increased in
length, the spider always using the lust
guy made to carry the next one over
until he attains the position In which
he wishes to place his net The lost
guy may be ten feet long and the first
one only a foot In length.
"When the guys are all fixed to his
satisfaction he proceeds to put in the
network by storting from the center,
where he attaches his web, then with
circular motion traveling from guy to
guy, spinning web as he goes and ty
Its natural moisture sticks It to each
guy, carefully carrying the web In his
hind feet to prevent It from touching
except at the point desired by him.
When he has a small distance of the In
side completed he goes to the outside of
the net and finishes out any Irregular
part of the net that does not come
within the radius of a circle. After the
circle has been attained the same ro
tary motion is kept up until the net in
finished in the center.
"Here comes the most oomlo feature
of net building the test of the durabil
ity of the work by the spider himself.
As soon as the net Is finished he puts
every guy through the severest test, by
sharp, brisk jerks, seemingly sufficient
to tear the whole net to pieces. If he
finds the net Is not taut, he will go to
the end of the guy rope, stretch It until
the net sluts him and reattach the guy.
If the net still seems loose from the
center the guy will be carried from the
center to some convenient point, to give
the net Its proper shape.
I he nets are perched so as to catch
mosquitoes and small Insects. The
struggles of the prey generally serious
ly damage the nets. The spider him
self in the morning demolishes the rest
of the web for the day, with the excep
tion of the main guy ropes, retires to
a secluded quarter and again appears
late In the afternoon, about 1:30 c 5
o'clock, and renews his net It requires
him about an hour and a half to con
struct the ordinary web. This work Is
done every day, rain or shine, and both
male and female spiders are equally in
dustrloua. The baby spiders are taught
industry, beginning net building right
after their birth. While bulldinir his
net the spider takes no notice of the
accumulation of Insect life in its meshes
and when his work of building is fin
ished he pounces upon them ravenous
ly, oonsumdng them In toto. You can
not kick or blow these spiders out of
their nets, nor can they be taken una
wares. When they fall their own net
Is attached to them, and they can al
most touch the water and then quickly
run back on a silken string which they
spun while falling. The web Is always
attached to them. When the main guy
of the net becomes too full of Insect ce
brls for convenience and comfort the
spider goes out consuming all before
him, and at the same time spinning a
fine wb behind, entirely renewing the
guy." St Douls Republic.
It Is a very plain fact that It Is al
ways best to furnish a horse with an
unlimited supply of water which he can
take at will. An animal under these
conditions will not take too much
but when we take Into consideration
how few stables are so fitted as to al
low this being carried out, It Is In most
cases out of the question the more so
as horses are out on long Journeys or
employed In work, coming to the stable
hungry, thirsty and tired. Seventy
five per cent of the animal body Is
compoeed of water, and It Is essential
to the bodily health that this propor
ion of fluid and solid constituents be
maintained. The secretion and fluid
excretions are constantly tending to
reduce the fluid parts below the nor
mal, says the Breeders' Gazette, and at
no time Is this more aparent than after
ing and active work the loss result-
ng from increased perspiration and
It Is at this time that popular opin
ion would withhold water until the an
imal oools down. Now I have always
made It a practice to permit the horse
to take what water he requires at that
time. When It Is warm In all Its parts,
with an active circulation, It Is best
able to resist the chilling effects of a
draught of cold water. The stomach
empty the fluid passes Into the bowels
and Is rapidly alssorbed, thus supply
ing tho necessary fluid to the blood,
without which the various secretions
requisite to digestion could not be
maintained. "The most dangerous time
to give a horse a full draught of water,"
says Dr. Dunlop, M. It C. V. H. (Ire
land), "Is after he has cooled down
from fatiguing work and has partaken
of a meal. The comparatively small
stomach of that animal Is replete with
energy, the circulation weak, the whole
system languid, and not In a state cal
culated to resist the chill. The water
mechanically washes the undigested
food from the stomach to the bowels,
Where It undergoes decomposition,
evolving Irritating and poisonous gases
end finally causing flatulent and spas
modic colic or fatal enteritis."

A young artist had presumed to fall
In love with the daughter of a famous
ship owner. It was long before the
dawn of aesthetic taste. The profes

When it became known that the rich
ship owner's daughter had encouraged
the suit of a painter, society was
shocked. The young man had talents,
no doubt, but they were talents of a
sort that did not count in those days.
One day a friend entered the shfc
owners nouse, and the mother and sis
ters of the woman begged hits to re

save the family honor.
"The family honor!" said he. "What
has Emily been doing now?"
"Doing!" answered the full feminine
chorus. "She's going to disgrace us all
by marrying the artist!"
"Pooh! pooh!" was the quick reply.
"The fellow Isn't enough of an artist to
make It anything of a disgrace.
