their wives and daughters work, yet if
they would work more they would have

it is the danger that makes it so popular.
hunter, stopped there for a few days
He was not previously aware that the
place was inhabited, but on this occa
sion he became convinced that thi was
the case. He noticed three small circu
lar inclosures about 200 yards from the
beach and about a mile apart. They
were about six feet in diameter, and
made of bniEh, the walls five feet high,
with a small opening on one side. Near
these openings were sticks of drift-wood
stuck in the ground in the form of a
tripod, supporting dried seal blubber.
These inclosures appeared to be simply
wind-breaks, affording no protection
from the rain. He also saw
a mysterious footprint,
and judged it to be that of a woman
from its size and arched center. An
approaching storm obliged Nidever's
vessel to leave the island without al
lowing him to pursue his investigations
any further. Mr. Nidever having seen
many otter on his first trip to the island,
made a second during the winter of
1852, and, being requested by the Mis
sion Fathers of Saita Barbara, he and a
party determined to make a careful
hunt for the supposed lone inhabitant
of the island. Within half a mile of
the head of the island they discovered
a basket in the crotch of a bush or small
tree, covered with a seal-skin, and con
taining a dress made of shags' skins a
sea fowl common in tbat section care
fully folded up, and several square
pieces of skins similar to those of which
the dreis were made; also a rope made
of seal sinews, abalone shell fish-hooks,
bone needles, etc. As it was late, and
time for them to return to their boat for
the night, Mr. Nidever scattered the
contents of the basket on the ground.
so that upon his return he could judge
of the presence or absence of the ownar
by finding them gathered up or remain
ing as he left them. The following four
or more days were spent in otter hunt
ing, and before the search for the In
dian woman was renewed a southeast

A Boston romance, in which a halo

Our Lunarian Neighbors.
Mrs. Mart Holbrook died in Mass
Tscluisetts sl few days ago.aged 93 years.
When 75 years old she began the man
ufacture of tidies, which found ready
safe in Boston, and were so much sought
forthat she was obliged to employ scv
'eral old ladies to do the coarser wort,
while she filled in the finer parts with
her own hands. In this way, up to her
A great change is taking place in our
views in regard to the moon, and it may
be that we are on the eve of discoveries
which will make this century an epoch
in astronomical history. Some Ameri
can observe.-s saw not long since a cra
ter on the lunar surface in active opera
tion under conditions as reliable as hu
man vision at such a distance can be ex
pected to reach. A French astronomer
has made observations on a grander
scale and confidently -'asserts tttat the
moon is inhabited. M. Camille Flam
marion, the present originator of this
long-cherished idea, is a scientist of
honor and renown, well known for his
reputation as an observer and enthusias
tic writer. He has written several ar
ticles to prove his position, and has de
termined to devote his life to this
branch of astronomical research. No
instruments on the globe are powerful
enough to afford a glimpse of our lu
narian neighbors. M. Flamtaarion i3
not in the least discouraged at this ap
parently insuperable obstacle in the way
of a solution of his problem. He is go
ing to have one made that will exhibit
the men in the moon to terrestrial eves
without a possibility of mistake. He
is urgently solicitinsr cuntributiona tn
fund for on immense refractuag teles
cope, whose estimated cost is 1,000,000
francs or $200,000. This instrument,
the astronomer believes, will be effectu
al in revealing the inhabitants in the
moon really existing according to his
sanguine faith. Some of the largest re
fractors in the world, if used when the
air is pure, bear a power of 3,000 on the
moon; that is, the rnpon appears as If
it were at a distance of eighty miles in
stead of 240,000. It can thus be seen
that an immensely increased power
would be required to detect small ob-
jects on the surface.
We trust M.-Flammarion will be suc
cessful in collecting funds for his mon
ster telescope, and that he will pick up i dencea of an encampment of the lone
A THIRD EXPEDITION
made to the island in 1853, by Nidever,
Charles Brown and four Indians from
the Santa Barbara Mission, was more
successful. On the day after landing,
Mr. Brown discovered the object of their
search at a distance, and cautiously ap
proaching in an opposite direction from
the remainder of the party, got quite
close to her without being observed.
She was in one of her pens or wind
breaks, clothed in a garment made of
the skin- of the shag, without sleeves,
low necked, and, as observed when
standing up, extending almost to the
ankles. She was sitting cross-legged.
skinning seal blubber with a rude knife
made of a piece of hoop-iron driven into
a piece of wood. There was no cover
ing on her head excepting a thick mass
of matted hair of a yellowish-brown col
or, due to the exposure to the sun and
air. The hair was short, looking as
though tbe free ends had rotted off.
She would occasionally raise her hand
and shade her eyes and look toward the
other men on a sandy plain near the
beach, whom she evidently saw. The
balance of the party were now signaled
in order that
SHE MIGHT BE CAITURED
if she attempted to escape. To the sur
prise of all she made no attempt to get
away, but greeted each one as they ap
proached with a bow and a smile, and
chattered all the time in a dialect that
none of them understood, although the
Indians accompanying Mr. Nidever
were acquainted with several Indian
dialects. She was talking apparently to
herself from the time Mr. Brown ap
proached within hearing distance until
she was made aware of his presence.
The expression of her face was pleasing,
her features were rezular, and her com
plexion much fairer and her form more
symmetrical than the Indian women on
the main land : and she is believed to
have belonged to a different and supe
rior race. By signs and other means of
communication she was made aware
that they wanted her to accompany
them, and without any apparent hesita
tion she made ready to follow. In their
course to where the schooner lay at
anchor they found a beautiful spring of
water issuing from the bank above the
beach, under a shelving rock. The
cracks or fissures in this rock were stuck
full of bones, and there were other evi-
popularity in the street
" Because he has always valued his
good name and has never been a mere !
scalper or conspirator against the
pockets of individuals. He cut Wil
liam 11. Vanderbilt dead in the Fifth
Avenue Hotel one night."
" How was that?"
" Vanderbilt was not above tricks and
deceit, and he came to Keene with some
talk about Lake Shore stock and gave
him false points. Keene is a man of
honor, and apart from Mr. Vanderbilt's
great wealth could not understand that
kind of treatment. A few such les
sons would be of great assistance to
build up Mr. Vanderbilt's character.
He has conducted himself tolerably well
for some time past."
"I was with Keene," continued Mr.
Ward, " at the White Sulphur Springs,
west lrginia, last fall when he got a
telegraphic dispatch informing him that
Michigan Central was selling at some
thing over seventy. He had bought it
somewhere about forty. He said to me :
'Mr. Ward, I have got 17,000 shares of
that stock which I bought long ago and
put away for investment. I think I will
sell it now.' He made over $100,000
right there. That is his style ; he is not
merely a speculator on turns, but he
buys large lines of stock for investment
and puts them aside. He owns 3,000,-
000 bushels of wheat and has it stored
in Chicago. He has nearly paid for that
wheat in the stock transactions of a few
weeks or months past. He also holds a
large quantity of Erie bonds. As I have
remarked, he is the most successful man
of his age who has made his name in ihe
stock market in an upright way."
