the White Wave, a Calif ornian schooner
employed in seal and other fishing in
tho North Pacific. On September 18.
1879, the srhooncr being within hight
of the Aleutian Islands, a boat was sent
on shore for water, the crew consisting
of Hans Jorgenson and two other sea
men. Hans, having his rifle with him.
had no sooner landed than ho went off
in search of game, and, as he took no
heed of the signal of recall, his mates
returned to the ship without him. A
furious gale sprung up. and for four
days it was impossible for the White
Wave to come anywhere near the
island. At the end of that time a
landing was effected, an I Jorgenson
was lound to be alive ccrtainlj. but
most btr.ingely altered in appearance.
The spare Swede of live feet seven,
with a bald pate and a thin straw-colored
mustache, was transformed into a

with a crop of fluffy hair, and seeming

His explanation of the invstery tUd
did not make the matter more intelli

mals, he followed the chase, all unsuc
cessfully, for miles before thinking of
returning to the boat When he did
think of it, he began to look about him,
and was mightily surprised with his
surroundings. The country was bleak
and barren, nothing but volcanic rocks,
without a single tree or shrub. Here
and there were rents in the earth, at tho
dark bottom of which small but rapid
streamlets sped tortuously along
through masses of lichen, while heavy
volumes of steam, impregnating tho
air with sulphurous odor, rose from

sought for something to breakfast upon;
a fruitless rpiest taking him to the
top of a hill, when, falling backward,
he rolled down a gulch on tho land

against and breaking one of a, number
of pebble-like objects, which examiua-
Miell of lime

of jelly of a light rose-color, composed
of au infinity ot minute cells, through

his linger, he applied his tongue to it
and swallowed some, but was so dis
gusted with tho t:ite that ho pitched
the shell away, and went back to hi
post, to watch for iho White Wave.
After watching for some hours tho
hungry fellow fell into a deep hlecp,
from which he was awakened by a sen
sation similar to that he had experienced
years before when pulled, half-drowned,
out of one of his native fjords: but his
social standing of the prisoner, who
owned one of the handsomest homes in
Jermyn, a thriving town near the head
of the Lackawaua Valley, and named t
after the prosecutor in the present
cause, caused a great commotion in the
community at the time of his arrc-ft. a
year ago, and few were willing to be
lieve him guilt of embezzling the
funds of his confidinjr emplover. He
had been in Mr. Jermyn's employ hev
entcen years, superintended a Sunday
school, and was looked up U by every
body in the neighborhood as a men I el
mati, whose sobriety, industry and
sterling worth elevated him to a posi
tion of competence and respect. About
ayear ago. however, Mr. Jermvn had
his suspicions arou-ed concerning cer
tain entries and alterations made in the
books of which Uargar had charge.
Tracing the matter closer he discovered
the names of men who had never
worked for him entered upon the pay- ,
roll. He traced this system back for
several years, and in his search was sur
prised to ascertain that his old books
were missing. He finally found them in
an unused garret oluis store, ami when
brought to light they revealed a
state of affairs against Uargar such as
was shown by tho entries already ex
amined. It was ascertained that in
various ways, such as false entries,
drawing pay for men who never
worked, and so on, Itargar had within
live years embe.zled -50,000 of his em
ployer's money. His bon, a young man
of great promise, was in court this
afternoon when Uargar was called for
sentence. The room was well filled,

Presiding Judge Handley, Judge Hand

Then he whispered in a joyous xvhisper
to a confidential friend: " " Don't say

They wiped their mouths, and the

three dollars in change xvas missing.

healthy month in the year in Home.
If you escape tho fevers until then, you
can rarely escape them in August, un

of which you soon get tired. As rest,

ventives of Roman fever, the August

and Roman fever is not easily fonrottcn.
It begins xxith a shivering fit that
shakes the very room in xvhich tho vic
tim lies, nor can thc heaping on of
eider-down quilts and pillows stop it
It sometimes continues for hours. The
teeth chatter, and you feel as if sud
denly cast naked on an iceberg. When
the shivering fit ceases the fever com
mences, ancfaftcr that comes a profuse
perspiration. Tho more yon perspire
the better, for if the patient does not
pcrspiro he is suffering from the worst
kind of Roman fever, called the "per
niciosa," whose very name makes Ro
mans quake xvith terror, for it carries
one off in a couple of hours. Native
Romans think nothing of these fevers:
they do not even call in a doctor if all
goes on well; that is. if the perspira
tion comes out all right They know
exactly what to do, and the fevers have
no more effect on them than that of
keeping them in bed during the actual
fevcrishness. Between the spells, which
return very regnlarly. they cat. drink,
work, walk and go to theaters as if
nothing was the matter, with- them; and
will sometimes continue thus for mora
than eighteen months. They look as

Nothing bnt chain-lightning could
have beat the movements of that Alder
man in pulling out an "X" aad placing
it in the hands of a stakeholder. When

Oxe awful cold night colder than
two of the coldest nights consolidated
a hunter named liosking built an
extra big fire in his log cabin to keep
warm, an' he kept a piling on the wood
until the shanty was all ablaze, and
when a few persons livin round there
saw the light an' run to his assistance
they saw flosking a-sittin" in the midst
of the flames a shiverin an' a rabbin
of his hands as though he couldn't get
warm; and when the shanty was all
burned to ashes they found aim in the
ruins a-sittin' on a big hickory log frozea
to death. Xuintsota' Eli FcrTara.
