John Wanamaker was once asked to
Invest In an .expedition to
doubloons from the Spanish
which for half a century had lain at
the bottom of the sea In sunken frig
ates. "Young men," he replied, "I know of
a better expedition than this right
here. Near your own feet lie treas
ures untold. You can have them all
by faithful study.
"Let us not be content to mine the
most coal, to make the largest locomo
tives, 'to weave the largest quantities
of carpets, but amid the sounds of the
pick, the blows of the hammer, the rat
tle of the looms and the roar of the
machinery take care that the immortal
mechanism of God's own hand the
mind Is still full trained Tor the high
est and noblest service.'
The Ignorant man is always placed
at a great disadvantage. No matter
how much natural ability one- may
have, if be is ignorant be Is discount
ed. It Is not enough to possess ability;
It must be made available by' mental
discipline. "We ought to be ashamed to
remain in ignorance In a land where
the blind, the deaf and dumb, where
even cripples and invalids, manage to
get. a good, education. The trouble Is
that many youths throw away little
opportunities for self culture because
they cannot see great ones, and they
let the years slip by without any spe
cial effort at self Improvement until
they are shocked In middle life or
biter by waking up to the fact that
they are still ignorant of what they
ought to know. .
It is not absolutely necessary that an
education should be crowded into a
few years' of school life. The best
educated people are .those who are
always learning, always absorbing
knowledge from every possible source

young people who ha-v attired a bet

The eye was intended for a great ed

getting out to the outside world. It de-'

senses, to bring It material, and the
larger part of it comes through the eye.
The man who has learned the art of

Mr. Whltmarsh in "The World's Hough

We had just finished our midday

crossed an old track leading to some
deserted workings near by and on it
had picked up a piece of honeycombed
mineral which I could not place. I
thought of it now and tossed it ovento
Sam; saying: "Here's a curious hit -of
stuff I found. It looks volcanic."
"I: don't wonder it-puzzled you, son

The Fly Cantlaa- Prrleane.
Wliiie our knowledge' of these things
does not exact from us an independent
protest against constantly repeated
praise of the qualities of trout .and of
fly casting as a means of taking them,
it perhaps adds to the spirit and em
phasis of our dissent when we are told
that fly casting for trout Is the only
style of fishing worthy of cultivation
and that no other method ought to be
undertaken by a true fisherman. This
is one of the deplorable fishing affecta
tions and pretenses which the sensible
rank and file of the fraternity ought
openly to expose and repudiate. Our
irritation is greatly increased when we
recall the fact that every one of these
superrcfined fly .casting dictators when
he fails to allure trout by his most
scientific casts will chase grasshopiters
to the point of profuse perspiration and
turn over logs and stones with fever
ish anxiety in quest of worms and
grubs, if haply he can with these save
himself from empty handedness. Nei
ther his fine theories nor his exclusive
faith in fly casting so develops his self
denying heroism that he will turn his
back upon fat and lazy trout that will
not rise. From Grover Cleveland's
"Fishing and Shooting Sketches."
When Prince Bismarck was eighty
years old he received an immense num
ber of congratulatory birthday mes
sages by wire and post. The staff of
the tiny postoflice at Friedrichsruh
was raised to thirty officials for the
birthday week, while the telegraphers
bad at their disposal five direct wires
to Hamburg and four to Berlin. From
March 25 to April 1 the number of tel
egrams received gradually rose from
102 to 4,122, with 128,2 words. Dur
ing the whole period close upon 12,000
telegrams, aggregating nearly half a
million words, were received and for
warded. In the same period there ar
rived 979 ordinary parcels, 225 regis
tered parcels, 995 registered letters and
about 450,000 ordinary letters and book
post consignments. The only telegrams
to which immediate answer was neces
sary were those from royalties. The
only other so honored was one from
school children in England.

One winter when Thaddeus Stevens

he was the victim of a severe cold
and could not leave the bouse for many
weeks. One of bis callers was Lewis
Clark, a man of short .stature, who
in earlier days had beeu a playmate of
the "Old Commoner" and was a near
neighbor of the Stevens family In their
Peacham home. Yermouters had just
begun to wear buffalo coats, and Mr.
Clark arived at the Stevens home al

Stevens to an Jncreduioas tone.
