"I wish yon would have a porter
come np and wash the labels off my
trunks , " remarked a well dressed man
as he signed his name to the book at the
Continental last night. The guest as he
spoke pointed to three big trunks that
stood in the baggage room. The trunks
were covered with the various labels
that indicated that they had made a
long continental journey. In days gone
by these labels were the proper thing ,
and the man just home from Europe
considered those glaring tags as almost
sacred. But fashion has changed this
year , thanks of the Prince of Wales set
ting the pace , and now these glaring
showbills indicative of travel are no
longer in vogue. r Philadelphia In

MINING CF PHOSPHATES.
Where Deposits Are Found and How
They Are Prepared.
The Florida phosphate deposits are of
great importance , yet their existence
was discovered so recently and their
extent is still so uncertain that few per
sons not engaged in the sale of fertiliz
ing materials have niuch knowledge of
the large industry which has sprung up
in the Peninsular State. It has practical
ly created a new city Ocala which
had a population of but a few hundred
in 1870 , but is now a thriving business
center with modern improvements ,
banking facilities and ample railway
and transportation facilities. Engineer
ing , the leading engineering journal of
the world , makes the following state
ments concerning the region , which are
of considerable interest as coming from
an unbiased source : "There is no phos
phate region in the world known today
that possesses so many advantages for
successful mining as the Florida depos
its. The grade of material iE the highest
average that is being worked anywhere.
The facilities for moving the products
to points for distribution are good. The
average distance from mines to ports
for shipments is about 150 miles.
"The distributing stations for the hard
rock district are Port Tampa , Fernan-
dina , Brunswick and Savannah , the
largest tonnage being moved from Fer-
nandina , where storage bins are located
and loading facilities are good. Port
Tampa , the terminus of the Plant sys
tem of railroads , is constantly adding
facilities for prompt handling of cargoes
of phosphate and at present very nearly
equals Fernandina in the amount of its
shipments. Eailroad are numerous and
cheaply constructed when necessary to
extend them into new sections. The
machinery needed to mine and prepare
the material is simple and inexpensive
compared with that generally used in
other mining operations , and the cost
of a plant with sufficient land to work
upon is within the reach of small in
vestors. The working days at the mines
are about 280 during the year. The cli
mate is healthful , laborers readily ob
tained at a fair compensation , and
skilled operatives are at hand who are
becoming familiar with the business.
"The mining camps are generally well
regulated , and proprietors and employ
ees can reside at the mines with safety
and with little inconvenience , as sup
plies of all kinds can be readily obtain
ed at the towns located in the near
vicinity of all the large mining fields.
Telegraph and mail facilities are within
easy access of nearly every mining camp
in the stata Florida phosphates are
mostly shipped to European ports and
are manufactured into fertilizers in
England , Ireland , Germany , France ,
and quite recently shipments have been
made to the Sandwich Islands. Foreign
agents of consumers and dealers in phos
phates have their offices near the center
of production , and contracts for deliv
ery and prices are commonly fixed at
points of shipment , the material being
sold at a price per unit of its contents
of phosphate of lime. The Florida phos
phates are all used in the manufacture
of commercial fertilizers and superphos
phate. " Boston Transcript.
THE RETIRED BURGLAR.
He Finds It Hard to Accnstom Himself to
Ordinary Hours of Living.
"My chief trouble now , " said the re
tired burglar , "is about my hours. I
have been so long accustomed to work
ing nights and sleeping days that I find
it difficult to change back to the hours of
other folks. Instead of having my break
fast at 7 o'clock in the morning I have
it at 7 o'clock in the evening. Some
folks make their dinner the last meal
in the day , but I never could get used
to that. I can sleep better on a light
meal , so I have my dinner in the mid
dle of the day I mean the middle of
the night and my supper about 5
o'clock in the morning.
"This schedule works all right for
the first half of the night. There's plen
ty of life then , and I can go to the thea
ter and one place and another , but after
dinner , I must say , I find it pretty
tedious. "When I was at work and my
mind was occupied , I never thought
anything about it , but now it is differ
ent This is a bigger town than it used
to be , and it's open all night. There's
plenty of occupations nowadays that
people work at all night , but the people
that work at 'em are working at ! em.
You don't see'em around the streets ,
and the general fact remains that most
people work days and sleep nights , and
the cold fact is that from dinner time
to supper time I feel sort o' lost.
"ButI'mnotdibcouraged. I don't sup
pose I could change the habits of a life
time in a minute , and I shall just keep
on trying till I get my hours shifted
around again like other people's. "
