bucreed Gen. Nelson A. Miles In com
mand of the nrmy of the Unltod
States, entered the service ns a pri

The Four "Bonanza Kings."
Tho wealth of "Tho Four Bonanza
Kings" has been much exaggerated.
Basing their belief on such movements
In tho stock market as that of 1871 und
the ?10 dividends they once received
monthly, men have asserted that one
or the other of the four was worth
$150,000,000. Hut unless Markay ac
cumulated groat wealth after he left
the Comstock mine and tho San Fran
cisco stock market, and alter his dis
astrous deal In wheat, not one of them
wns ever In possession of $25,000,000.
Hut they enrae up to some such figure
as that from nothing and kept to tho
end a large part of what they made.
And with It all neither California
nor Nevada can point to one great in
stitution of art or education or char
ity and say: "That Is an enduring
monument to the 'Hlg Four.' "

Decries North Pole Search.
Sir Clements Murkham, president ot
tho Royal Geographical hooloty, ot
Great Hrltaln, has denounced racing
for the north pole as "tomfoolery." "It
would bo all very well," he Is reported
to have tnld, ''to try to got nearer
what wo call the north polo If deep
sea soundings could be carried out on
the way, but that is well-nigh Impos
sible." lie also made the Interesting
statement that wo now know practic
ally all that there Is to bo known about
the polo from tho geographical point
of view anil that the majority of scien
tists are convinced that It is all ocean
beyond the point nlready reached.

furnish sufficient protection to tho
friendly or neutral natives, with tho
rosult that thousands of them Joined
tho mad mullah, being given tho
cholco of doing so or being raided. In
March, 1900, ho attacked an Abys
sinian oxpedltlon of 1,500 men sent
against him, and although bo lost
2,500 men and retreated, tho ferocity
ot his attack Inspired Menellk'a
troops with such a dread of him that
no attempt was mndo to pursuo him.
Three years ago ho had 3,000 follow
ers, with only sixty rifles; now ho has
40,000 men, a good percentage of
them nrmod with rifles secured in
raids on caravans.
If you are In n hurry to get married
this schedule ought to prove helpful.
There are always plenty of bints on
how to live on ?2 n week; how to
catch a husband, how to procure it
we; how to make beef stew nnd
clean Ivory-handled knives, In the
newspapers, but, sad to state, them
has been no one to get up nn official
schedule or guide for tho tise ot young
people who want to get man led. Most
men think It takes all day to tie tho
knot. It might take alt da or nil
year to untie It, but It lakes just nine
minutes, by the w.itch, to tie it.
You might be standing on tho cor
ner of Fit th avenue and Sinlthlleld
street at say 10 o'clock In the morn
ing, heart whole and fancy free, and
you might leturn to tho same corner
In exactly nine, minutes with nil tho
cares and responsibilities on your
shouldurs as a mnirled man, Of
course you must needs have provided
yourself with tho girl, but If what men
say Is anything to Judge by, you enn
get tho girl In less time than It takes
to go from tho corner nnd get mar
ried. Bo that us It may, for the fol
low who wants the whole thing over
In n very short space of time thero Is
plenty of opportunity.
The hurry of Americans Is provor
blal. They are always up and doing
nnd never waste more time than Is
absolutely necessaiy on any one er
rand. Thus you see with tho aid of
this schedule' tho busy man of Pitts
burg makes an appointment with his
futuro wife. They whisk off to tho
marriage license window, thenco to
the apartment of the fellow who ties
the knot, and in nine minutes he will
be scon shaklne hands with her nnd
on his way to his oHlce, whllo sho
boaids a trolley car and makes a call
on her now mother to acqunlnt her
with tho facts of the case. Thoro Is
no iiseloss waiting all day for a mar
riage In tho evening and no crowding
out of a bed on a cold morning, nt an
unheard-of hour to participate in a
morning wedding. You chooso a sen
sible hour and like a scnslblo man
after consuming nlr.o minutes you re
turn to your olllcc a married man, at
tend to your dny's duties, and then In
tho evening you hunt up Polly nt her
new mother's, or her own mother's,
nnd you are now In a position to pay
a hoard bill for two Instead of one,
as a result of nlnc-mlnutes lost from
the ofllco thnt morning.
After you have mndc several kinds
of a fool of yourself at tho marrlago

age, nationality and so on you movo
on to Mr. Brown in the prothonotnry's
ofllco, who was at ono tlmo a preach
er. If thero is anything that Mr.
Brown does lovo It Is weddings. Ho
Is so fond of then that he is always
nrmed. In his pockot ho always car
ries tho little book so lndlspensablo
to functions of this kind. Through
somo wireless telegraphy tho same
Mr. Brown hears murmurlngs of your
npplylng for a license. Ho stands up,
brushes down several Imaginary
flecks of dust from his well-fitting
coat and grasps tho little book tighter
than ovor. He has tho assistance of
tho urbane usher who is posted at
tho door to guide the trembling foot
steps of strangers. Poets have said
that all the world loves a lover, but
tho poets aro wrong. They should
