After a parting of I., years, a, father
and son were united In Satisiillto,CaI.,
a few dn, s ngo under peculiar circum
stances, reports .1 S.m I-'r.iucUuo pa
per. In 185(1 J. S. Uellrude, n local justice
of the pence, left his home In the state
of Wisconsin to visit California In
search of old. llchiud hint he left a
young wife and an Infant child, nnd ha
worked hU way IntheCallfornlawilder
ncss wlOt the thought ever before him
of making a rich strike ntiil returning
to hU little family with tho wealth
that would forever iiinke them com
fortable. Hut luck conspired against
him, and while success after success
crowned the efforts of the men delv
ing in the hills nbout him, liU own lit
tle claim only produced a heritage of
debts. Ten years passed, nnd Uellrude
learned that his wife was dead. The
son was Ihlng In comfort with his
mother's people, and the discouraged
man, feeling that all was well with
the boy, allowed him to drop from
sight, nnd his very exUteneo lecamo
uncertain with the father. Thirty
years "K" the father mailed his plotuni
to the .son, nud since thut time the
latter has always tried to kep trace
of the former's whereabouts.
A year ngn the ion, who had become
4ft years of age, left his home, and,
emulating his father's example of
yvnrs before, struck out Into the
frozen rrffion of Noma to search for
gold. Luck, which had never come
to the fathsr, showered its favors oa
the son, and the latter located a num
ber of good claims, which, he says, wilt
make him a wealthy man. A short
t!tn ago he returned to Seattle, from
which place ha located his agrd father
in Sausallto. He at once went back
to that town, and'almoat the first bub
ha met was Bellruda, 8r. The latter
was sitting on the front seat of the
hack which he drlvei whan the calls
of justice are not pressing, and he waa
at once accosted by the ion. The lat
ter held the picture sent him by his
futher .10 years ago In his hand, and
carefully sized up the old man.
"Arc you J. fl. Uellrude?" the young
'Yep," answered the justice.
"Well, do you know me?" asked th
"No, I don't know you, young man,
and you can't sell me anything,
either," responded the judge, who ban
not spent ten years on the Sausallto
water front for nothing.
"Well, my mime Is O. M. ncllrude,
nnd I guess you are my father," .said
the stranger. "Here Is the picture you
sent me :i) years ngo In Wyoming."

The Saracens charged on and re
peatedly defeated the muil-clnd
legions of Europe, aud this when the
latter were of the two the more ani
mated by religious fervor, says a
writer in the London Spectator.
Hyder All's horsemen were aa good
troops as any In the world. Even In
our own time the French feared
Arabs when commanded by Ab-del-Kadir,
and the best Italian troops
were defeated by Menelek. It la prob
able, too, that If Europe knew the de
tails of the sporadic war which ragea
in Arabia between Turks and Arab
we should revise our idea of Aaiatio
capacity, both for soldiership and for
heroism; but still it is substan
tially true that the Asiatic soldier
wants ns a fighting man something
which wc call aptitude for discipline,
iinil which the European officer can
and does communicate to him. Whut
that Homethlng Is has been a matter
of dispute from the day of Xerxei'
invasion, nnd will probably never bo
Mettled till the Asiatic becomes self
conscious nnd n pehman.
The writer once asked the first 8ir
Henry Ha clock what he, with his
great experience and knowledge of
military history, believed to be the
reason, and his answer, that "it waa
due in the long run to some secret
want of confidence on the part of the
men in their officers' capacity or hon
esty," though not completely satis
factory, is probably aa near as we
shall get to the truth. The explana
tion, however, does not so much
matter. The grand fact Is that any
competent European officer can do
the needed work, that such officers are
in the market, and that, consequently,
powerful Asiatic armies may yet be
nrgaul7ed by soldlem of fortune pur
chased for the purpose.
The Poor l Porto Illeo.
Though there is much poverty in
this beautiful island, there is also
much happiness. The (Hiorest classes
are happy from morning till night.
They use the bark, brunches and limbs
of the trees for the construction of
their houses, Large goitrds furnish
them with buckets, nnd sninUer ones
with utrioiis essels. Fruit und vege
tables are plentiful all the year round.
Two crops of corn can be harvested,
They have oranges, banntms, plantains
and mnugnes In abundance. There is
no cold winter and no need for extra
clothing or fuel. Porto KIco Letler
