-A very Interesting letter has been re
ceived ut the department of tule from United
States Consul I'luinaohcr , located lit Mur-
ncalho , Venezuela , on the subject of nsplmlt

racy sketch of some remarkable phenomena.

"J'hat part of the department Colon sit
uated between the rivers nnd Santa Anna ,
Zullu and the Sierra and Columbian frontier ,
is very ilch in asphalt nnd petroleum. Thu
Information which wo have legardlng thin
extensive mid Interesting section , which is
an uninhabited forest , is derived chiclly from
.the t cpoi Is of the searchers for balsam co
ftalbu , which abounds In this region , although
the following data are tukun from the
personal obsurvutions of un American gen
tlemen who made a special explora
tion. Near the Hlo do Ore , and nt the foot of
the Sierra , there Is very curious phenome
non , consisting of a horizontal cave , which
constantly ejects , In the form of large glo
bules , u thick bitumen. These globules ex
plode nt the mouth of the cnvo with a noise

Of asphalt und petroleum , especially toward

At a distance of a little more than seven kil
ometers from the confluence1 of thu rivers
Turn and Surdlnete , thuro Is a mound of
Bund of fiom twenty live to thirty feet in
height , with an are.i of ubout threu thousand
pciuntc feet. On Its surface are u multitude
pf cylindrical holes of different si/ns which
eject with violence streams of petroleum und

covered or impregnated with petroleum. Thu

Visited the place , c.tll It thu infernito ( little

' from nno onl.of . these streams of petroleum
\vus filled in nno niinuto a receptacle of the
cupai Ity of four gallons , which for one hour
jvould bo 'JIO gallons , or 5,7iHJ gallons in

fluulitj , with a density of eighty-

easily believed that this bus u direct bearing

&ml its apparent identity with u biibstancu

The last special or Gullotln edition of the
United States eounsulur reports , issued nt
the department of stuto this week , contains
n lengthy and carefully prepared statement
bn the subject of Auslrilusl.ui wool from
United States Consul Grifllnu Sydney , New
South Wales. It Is stated upon the author
ity of u democratic member of the liouso that
this report was prepared for the purpose of
fnntcinp nn impression upon congress in the
Discussion of the Mills tariff bill , but the Hg-
* urcs produced by it form nn argument
tigainsl thu adoption of the free wool clause
In the tariff bill. Thuro uro two sets of tub
ular stutemunts in this report. One of them
r'contains the value of thu wool produced in
. Australia from 1VP.3 to 1SSS , while the other
, plvcs un exhibit showing thu export of
wool to thu United States from
lelbourno for each season since 1871.
.tU'p appreciate the meaning of these figures It
phould be stated upon the authority of dcui-
* ocratic meiabctsof the liouso committee on
ways nnd means thut Australian wool is
{ Vrorth ubout ! ! 3 per cent more than the artl-
tplc piodnccd In the United States. One of
'Hho arguments offmed by thu democrats In
laver of free wool is , that the Australian
vool is finer than that In the United States ,
ind that it is necessary in thu manufacture
if goods from thu product of the United
Mates. This report shows thut the average
miunct of wool in Australia during the last
itxtcu.ii years was worth KM,70JU. " > U a year.
J2neh halo averaged u little over $ " > $ In
American money , ami dui ing Iho lust year
mo firm exported from the single port of
Uclbourno IH.WW bales to the United Stntos
t Is shown fmthcr , in this report , that the
otal number of sheep In the United Status
luring the period omhruLcit has increased
rom nineteen millions to ovwsixtj millions ,
vhlle the Increase hi the Australian export
if wool to thu I'tilled Stntes during the same
> oriod has doubled , thus showing that our
mpolls of wool are Increasing quite us nip-
idly us our increase in flocks of sheep , not-
ivltht-tunding the duty now levied on foreign
wool This is a clour demonstration , proven
by dei.ocrutie figures , that despite the in-
crous.e in our floeits of sheep our demumlb for
raw wool nru growing more rapidly than the
products. Farmers will lead \\ith interest a
coinp.i l on between tlio prices of wool In
.Austra ui nnd the United States. 'While the
Ordinary unwashed wool was commanding UJ
Cents this spring in our markets , Iho Aus
tralian wool , quoted us "good UVOIMIU , frco , "
ut 111 cents or If- cents , whilu the "mcillurn , "
Which thu dcmocnitle members of the house
are proclaiming us far superior to
the host American guide , is quoted
at from 14 to IS cents a pound , or from 7 to
7K pence. The "good average ' washed and
picked Australian wool is quoted ut from I ! . '
to 14 pence , or ' M to 25 cents , u pound in Aus
tralia , and the s-amo grade of American wool
is at the snmit tunu quoted in the American
inarketi at 3J cents a pound. To appreciate
Jtccnl ; the comparison pf thesM tlgure.s , the
Irnilor should mid nbput 3.1 per cent to the

Mvcly Russia has recently not only In-
crea ed her taxes on Imports but has estab
lished taxes on a number of her imports ,
notably cereals. And now comes the in
formation from our consul at St , Petersburg
that the Russian government has Just
opened her much-talkcd-of Trans-Caspian
railway , which Is over 1.3SO versa In length ,
or about 000 miles It Is a military road , It
is true , but one of the principal objects in
the construction of this road by the Uussiuii
government is to open the door Into the great
cotton fields of Central Asia The tsar
hopes to produce even more cotton from his
own soil than will bo required by the manu
facturers of bis country. It Is the money 61
the Russian empire that has built this road ,
nnd it will bo the empire's money which will
establish n system of Irrigation. Intended
to mak" the hot plains and deserts'
In Central Asia productive of rotton.
All this tends to not only cut of un import
ant market for raw materials from the
United States , but also the market for our
manufactured articles. ' 1 hero was imported
into Russia last , \ear 10COJIK,0 pouds ( the
pouds are thlitjsix pounds ( costing WiW ( < ) ,000
rubb'cs , or $15,000.0 )0. ) As the great bulk of
this comes from the United States It will be
seen that the opening of this cotton-produc
ing region of Russia , and the establishment
of ptoeesses for irrigation , is n very serious
matter to the United States. It can bo seen
also trial If the United States had free trade ,
or anything that approached free trade , the
cotton industries of this country would at
once bo closed out. In Central Asia and
other portions of the Russian omplio where
It is proposed to produce cotton and compete
with the southern states of America the very
best grades of common labor can bo procured
at from 30 to 71) ) roubles per day , or ! . " > to li.'j
cents a day for each man , and about half
that amount for each woman , and the la
borers in that country work from I o'clock In
the morning till ' . ) o'clock nt night Russia
Intends to do even more than this for the
purpose of competing uith the. United
States mat kets. blm is projecting the con
struction of n great railway across Siberia to
the 1'acillc ocean. The explorations by the
surveyors and engineers huvo already begun.
It is proposed to bring into competition with
tlio United States the immense resources of
Russia's oxllo country , which ulonu is larger
than all of tha United States , and where the
empire employs exile or pauper nnd criminal
labor. It would not be n wholesome reflec
tion to anticipate the romH | > titlon of a coun

with her serfs , slaves and ignorance combin
ing to wlpo out the thrifty industrial Inter

Eugene Hipgins , tbe Haltlmoro ward
striker , who achieved so much notoriety in a
short time as appointment clerk of tlio treas
ury department , and who gave out to the
press that ho was tired of public lifo and do-
sircd to enter into private business , has been
spending a good deal of his time recently in
Washington. Higgins is a very fair sample
of a class of cheap politicians who were
brought into prominence by this administra
tion and proving unsatisfactory wore thrown
overboard after a brief trial and permitted to
sink out of sight. A year ago the name of
Illggins appeared In almost every newspaper
In the country , daily , and the people about
Washington were inclined to think that he
was for all time to como tin influential citizen
of the United States. Immcdiatelv after hu
letired from bis oftleo ho returned to his po
litical haunts uroiin.1 Baltimore and the cap- !
al of Maryland and began to cngago
n that species of small polities
vhieh has given him a political hand-hold
ipon the rough classes in his native otate.
t is said that Higirms is desirous of securing
mother place under tlio administration , and
fiat he 1ms boon soliciting his friends in
congress to help him out Senator Germans
s reported to have loft Higgins to "sink or
swim" some time bcfoio the latter loft the
rcasury department , nnd he linds himself
vithout any of that political influence he
ilmself boasted of possessing onlv a lew
nonths ago to a degree which enabled him
o control Maryland politics. Hero is a man
vho less than a year ago was running the
lolltics of the treasury with n hich hand ,
ticking men out of office and thrusting
otheis into places with that neglige which
lecomos old politicians of omnipotent power ,
vlulo to-day bo is himself hustling around

the slightest inlluoncc.

low and uniform temperature that can

Tlio Uest I'aitl Writers.
A Now York 1 jttcr says : Hnrlnn P.
Ilalhcy , of this city , claims to bo the
best paid story writer. Not long since
he told mo ( tOorgciMutiroe was paying
him at the rate of 87,501) ) per year for
bK ' 'Old Sleuth"stories. . Among the
women writers Mrs. SJbuthworth leads ,
with Mary K. 13ryan a clo o second.
Mrs. South worth lias , something like
$7,000 per annum from the Now Yorlc
Ledger. The other lady , who caino not
so very long ago from below Mason and
Dixon's line , attracted the attention of
her present employed by her work on
the Sunny South , ircr pen yields her
about 80,000 a , yedr. Speaking of
the south Uioj'o is another lady
living there who makes a living writ
ing for northern weeklies , and her pen
is probably the most prolific in the busi
ness , but yet hlio does not earn ns much
as Maw E. Bryan. This is Mrs. 12.
Burke Collins , of New Orleans. 1 be
lieve the first paper on which she earned
money was the Now York Clipper , to
the columns of which she furnished sev-
or'il ' serials and many sketches. 1 have
known a serial from Mrs. Collins' pen to
bo running in the Now York Weekly ,
another in the Family Story Paper
and a third in the Saturday Night.
Besides , she furnished a sketch
weekly to the Family Story Paper and
also did other literary work. It is said
of Mrs. Collins that she has never boon
seen by any of her northern publishers.
Still another southern lady whoso ro
mances are highly popular with the
masses is Mrs. Emma Garrison Jones ,
who is employed by Mr. Norman L.
Munro. This lady is an invalid , and
has not left her home in years. Her
F.ilary is about equal to that of Mary E.
Bryan , and to earn it Mrs. Garrison-
Jones Is not required to write as much
as the former.
Lincoln null McClrllnn.
In the following paragraph from the
Century lifo of Lincoln an account is
given , from the diary o' Colonel Hay
'hinriclf , of an extraordinary incident of
the year 1S01 , which has given rise to
many rumors : The friendly visits of the
president to army headquarters wore
continued almost every night until the
13th of November , when an incident
occurred which virtually put an end to
them. On that evening Mr. Lincoln
walked aerojtf the street ns usual , accom
panied by one of his household , to the
residence of the secretary of stnto , anil
after ti short visit there both of them
went to General Meridian's : house ,
in II street. They wore there tolil
tliat the general ha'd gone to the wed
ding of an olllcor and wouhl soon ro-
turn. They waited nearly an hour in
the drawing room , when the general
returned , and , without paving any
special attention to the orderly who
told him the president was wailing to
see him , wont up stairs. The president ,
thinking his name had not been an
nounced to the general , again sent a
servant to his room and received the
answer that ho had gene to bed. Mr.
Lincoln attached no special im
portance to this incident , and , to far as
we know , never uskcd'nor ' received any

Instructing Iilnle Hntlier.s.
Babyhood : Self-support in the water-
is bO easily accomplished that children
who are old enough to bathe alone in
ponds or nt the seaside should have the
"knack" of it explained until they
thoroughly and unmistakably under
stand it and have practiced it bullicienly
in charge of their elders to give them a
sense of assurance and sclf-rolianeo
when alone. It is not generally known
that a finger laid upon any lloating ob
ject , like a log , an overturned bout ,
or oven an oar , will sustain the
body iu smooth water suf-
lleiently for tlio head to bo
kept free for breathing and seeing.
Many persons are drowned because they
cxerl tbeninelves wildly when thrown
into the water suddenly , yet a boat half
filled with water , or with oven litUo
more than the gunwales above the sur
face , will support as many persons as
can got their hands on it , if they be
have quietly. A per on of perfect hclf-
) Kasossion , though not knowing how to
swim , would , in cases of accident , stand
a much bettor chance for lifo b.y resolv
ing to remain motionless , with sueh
support , and call until help came , than
would nn export sw'miner who should
' lose his hcad"aii'l lljundor around un
til his strength wr.s exhausted.
In this , as' in mi'iiy other things , the
best way to inst"uut u little i-hild is by
telling a story involving birch scones as
it is desired' impress upon the lis
tener , followed later by other stories
calculated to reach the sune end. until
the theory it , firmly lixed in the child's
mind ; then , when opportunities for
practical application come , to make the
mo-it of them. In no case should a fear
of the water bo allowed to impress it
self , except such as is based on the
swimmer's ) own recklessness or carclc.-s-
ncss. There is no knowing how soon
tlio occasion may come when parents
will bo unspeakably thankul for hav
ing cultivated a habit of self-possession
in their children at an early age.
The ability to on the back , with
no support , yet keeping the chin above
water , js not o easily acquired , yet it is
surprising how many boys and girls do
acquire it at a very early ago. In tills ,
however , much depends upon the si o
of tlio chest capacity relatively to total
weight of tlio body , as well as the set of
the head on the shoulders , and there
arc some who can not learn to lloat.
