In ono colliery not half n dozen miles
from tho gold mines I havo bc.oii a beam
of coal 70 feet in thickness. , This coal,
though of a low quality, suffices for tho
purposes of tho go.ld mines, and thero
is a sufficient quantity of it to outlast
far tho lives of all tho gold-miners. Bo
sides these coal deposits noar tho gold

"Ono most obtrusive" unpleasantness
in tho conversation of tho bioyclo fiend, "
observed n nonbioyolibt, "is his hnbit of

not enough that ho bhould pussoss tho
bioyclo iu its entirety, but also iu do
tail. 'Aly wheel,' when uttered two or
three times to overy bentonce, is bad
enough, but when it comes to 'my sad
dlo,' 'my tirps,' 'my valves,' 'my han
dle bar' and so forth, tho effect is both
Irritating and irrational. 1 onco heard
n man discourho for hours upon

greatest difficulty iu determining what
ho meant. From tho viewpoint of him
