is ot the closest interest to him.
After he has provided himself with
his home paper his next consideration

news ot ihe world, and paying special
attention to features which are of par

A Profitable Joke.
Near Shasta City, Cal., a gang of
gold miners were toiling in a gulch
when a ragged stranger, evidently
ignorant of mining, came along and
The miner near him took out a $5
nugget, and anxiety overcame the
“Say,” he asked, “where can I go
to diggin to find it like that?”
The hardy miner stopped his
work, and giving the wink to all the
boys so that the joke should not lie
lost pointed up to the barren rocks
where no gold had ever been found.
“You see that rough lookm place?”
“Yes,” said the new hand.
“Well, thar it is rich. Jes’ you
stake out a claim an go to work, an
when we finish here we’ll come up
The new hand thanked the miner,
and the boys all grinned their ap
preciation of the joke. That after
noon a solitary figure was seen pick
ing on the rocky hillside, and every
time the miners looked up they roar
ed with laughter.
But the next day the new miner
struck a pocket and took out several
thousands of dollars in gold. Then
he came and thanked the miner who
had sent him up there and went down
into the valley and bought a farm,
while the other miners dotted that
same rocky hillside for days without
finding a pocket. They agreed that
it was a joke, but not exactly of the
kind they had intended.—Youth’s
The latest reported improvement
in lamps is a device intended to obvi
ate the objectionable shadow thrown
on the ceiling by most regenerative
lamps and to overcome some other
features which detract from the
value of the principle. The difficul
ty of the shade thrown upward is
met by forming the upper part of
the lamp of etched ornamental glass
instead of having a metallic dome,
as is ordinarily the case. A good
illumination is thus obtained with
out the loss of any downward light
two streams of hot air are supplied
to the burners, one being heated by
means of the regenerator, which is
of cast iron, the other being warmed
in its passage through the lamp cas
Another point dealt with in this
construction is the deposit of carbon
on the ceiling, which is usual with
such lamps. This is practically re
duced to nothing—first, by the small
amount of gas burned per hour and
the perfect combustion obtained,
and, next, by the products of com
bustion being emitted from the
lamp laterally instead of being pro
jected upward toward the ceiling.
This arrangement has tbs merit of
simplicity, and the effect is very sat
isfactory.—New York Sim.
A Remedy That Failed.
There is a man in Harlem who has
a much respected aunt. This aunt is
wealthy and eccentric. She came
to live with this Harlem resident,
and having been reared in the
country and having recently come
from there she missed the rural hum
of insects and the agricultural noises
of a country residence.
Being anxious to please his rela
tive and make her reconciled to city
life, this Harlem man hired a num
ber of boys to secure crickets for
him. He bought 20 cans of crickets
and turned them out to pasture in
his back yard. For several nights
the cheerful chirping of the crickets
proved very soothing to the aged
aunt. The various cats in the neigh
borhood soon became aware of the
unusual number of crickets in this
back yard. Cats are fond of crick
ets, and now the Harlem man has
cats and not crickets in his back
yard. He says that all the cats in
Harlem have made his yard a tryst
ing place, and the aunt threatens to
move back into the country.—New
Society In Alaska.
Visitors to Sitka pronounce it not
a bad thing at all to be a girl in
Alaska society, for girls are a long
way above par in the social swim.
There are card parties and recep
tions. There are teas and dinners
on the tnm little gunboats, with men
to preside at the urn and show how
badly even the best of the sex do the
things a woman does so gracefully.
There are balls in the Russian castle
on the hill, where in the old days the
Muscovite governors brought their
high bred wives and held carnival
through the long Alaskan winters.
Like the Japanese, in case of com
pany, everybody borrows of every
body. The governor’s wife is served
from her own china at the captain’s
dinner, and the lieutenant’s bride
may eat from her own wedding
spoons at the paymaster’s party, but
there is less strife and envy and all
uncharitableness than in social cir
cles at the great centers of civiliza
tion, where everybody is striving to
outdo everybody else.—Sitka Letter.

kept it until night, when he careful

exclaimed, “Gee wizz! if one feather
