The forging, by mean of which

Reagent -bottles holding caustic al-

The inverse process may be used

FIRST DOUBLE EAGLE.
It vas Struck In Silver in 1849 and
Has Just Reappeared.
A Philadelphia coin collector has
just come Into possession of the first
double eagle struck from the dies
engraved by James B. Longacre at
the Philadelphia Mint in 1849.
The recently discovered coin it
composed of silver and at one time
was in the collection of Mr. Long-
acre. That It was the first piece
struck Is Indicated by the fact that
It bears no date, although both ob-
verse and reverse designs are exact-
ly like the unique gold piece of this
denomination and date that now lies
In the coin collections of the mint
It sl supposed that the coin was
made as a test of the dies, and that
Mr. Longacre placed it among other
experimental pieces of a similar na-
ture which at the time were not
thought co possess much of a value.
Owing to the curious circumstances
that resulted In only one piece being
struck in *i)ld from the 1849 dies
the first go!d double eagle of Long-
acre now Is regarded as the rarest
and most Interesting of all the Amer-
ican gold coins.
Another specimen, In copper, was
made from the 1849 dies. These three
coins represent the only known speci-
mens that were made from the first
At the time the new double eagle
made Its appearance in 1850 It was
suggested that it be called a Waph-
ington and that on the obverse in-
stead of a heafd of Liberty there
should be the head f Washington
surrounded by thirteen stars, and on
the other side a "handsome eagle
standing out as If it wer? not asham-
ed of itself and surrounded by as
many stars as the number of States
at the date of coinage." This Long-
acre double eagle was used until re-
placed ,by that of Saint-Oaudens.
While many experimental double
eagles have 'been made at the mlit
in gold, copper and aluminum, so far
as is known the recently discovered
specimen is the only one that has
even been struck in silver.-New

One of the largest is at Webster.
Another colony is at Dceepwater, about
six miles from Webster. Theue Ja'p-

the crop than the average American
planter and as a result they obtain
twice the yield. Many of the Japan.

Tho United States census report for
the census year ending May 81, 190Q,
shows that the total deaths of the
white race for that year was 892,092.
Of this number 87,60, not quite 10
* per cent, died from consumption. Of
the colored race, the total deaths
were 147,002; 22,286, about 15 per
cent, being from consumption. The
total estimate in Florida was 6,482,
659, less than 9 per cent, died from
consumption. Of these 559, 269 died
between the ages of 15 and 24.
The state board of health estimates
that the money cost of tuberculosis,
including capitalized earning power
lost by death, exceeds $8,000 per capi-

g9od for all of the people, or a large
part of them, to daily ask divine
blessing upon all mankind. The mere
fact of a large number of people un-
dertaking to write this little prayer
will tend to impress the beneficent
idea of charity and mutual helpful-
ness upon their minds and hearts.

After considerable disccusslon as

makes a report on June 1.
The committee of growers consists

ing the list was accorded to that sent
by Governor Gilchrist of Florida. It
was his opinion that this cruise dem-
onstrated the necessity of the Pan-
ama canal as a war and peace meas-
ure; that if a nation possessed of a
suitable fleet should, incident with
a declaration of war, land a quarter
to a half million of men on the Phil-
ippines we could not land thereafter
oven a brigade; that- the republican
policy in not neutralising the Phil-
ippines was a weak one; "demonstrat-
ed the folly of spending billions of
money and thousands of lives in the
army of occupation, in educating peo-
ple whom we can't assimilate and
who ddb't want to -be assimilated;"
and "demonstrated that if the 'Phil-
ippines are not neutralized, the effi-
ciency of the navy should be trebled,
and that two-thirds of this increased
navy should be stationed at the Phil-
ippines to retain people whom all par-
ties here say they do not wish to

do not wish to be retained." There

masterpiece of physiological inquiry
to previous contributions. Theoreti-
cal considerations may be left out,
although they are obviously of inter-
et compared with the results of prac-

enough to say that the results fully

seen the ordinary Dengalee coolie at

marked superiority of the European;
men have often to be employed in
India for work that women will do
in Jngland. Again, from an insur-
ance point of view, the life of the
Bengalee is very inferior to that if
the European. In spite of the fact
that the Bengalee exists on a quan-
tity of protein (a chemical comilun.ln
essential to health and furnished
largely by meat) than Professor Chit-
tendon, of Yale University, regards
as sufficient, the Bengalee's resistance

pear that the human machine lu

It happened with me here on the

become a movement up with a sud-

few minutes I could make neither
head nor tall of the action that was
going on below. At last on the line

sized perch on the highest droppe r
and presently I saw a second perchl
on the lower, while a moment later
I was astonished to see that my trout
was also still on the point with a
smaller trout on the dropper next
None of the fish was large of
course, though th" perch next me was
quite a pound; but I saw there was
scarcely a ,pcLtsible chance to get
all four into the boat safely, so haul-

shore a hundr.'d yards off with al-

until midnight jphying cards, is the
following concerning Charles Dickens:
Frith, many years ago, was comnmis-
sionod to paint a portrait of the
novelist. "There was a hitch abo'it
the first sitting," says the nonagen-
arian. "Dicke.ns hid started growing
a mustache. which was considered al-
most a crime In those days. The de-
lay in the sittings continued, and one
morning, when we expected to find
Dickens had r,,lented and bad shav-

his chin. liarundseer called that morn-

he saw Dicken's fa'e<. Dhickens then
took the bull by the horns. 'I say, old
fellow, you don't seem to notice this.'
he said, pointing to his mustache.
'Oh, yes, 1 do.' was the reply. 'It on-
ables me to see less of you, and that's
an advantage.' "-Tit-Bits.

Bounty on Rattlesnakes In Iowa.
What is considered the first trealt
bill, although It Is considered serl-
ously where reptiles are found in
large numbers, is a bill by Senator
Quigley providing for the payment of
a bounty of 50 cents for the killing
of rattlesnakes. The rattles and two
Inches of the tail of the reptile muat
be presented at the office of the
County Auditor with an afflildavit that
the snake was killed In the county
where application is made for the
bounty. The Auditor may destroy the
tail, but the rattles may be returned
to the slayer.
It is recalled h connection with
Senator Qulgley's bill that Senator
Newberry, his ,professor from the
Clayton district, was bitten by a rat-

nearly resulting in death.-Des

Macklin evidently assumes that
we have an educated palate, but we
must confess that our palate has not
been educated up to caviar, and we
should not therefore be included with

Probably, however, the Nsqulmau
banquets last longer than any other
and the quality of food swallowed is
also proportionately greater. Ross

they consumed 200 pounds of seal

the space of three days and night,
and even then he was still hungry.

such a cartoon we had a fit about

at the notice. But more than mere
notice is required to tickle our vanity
now. New Mexico and Arizona are
good-sized, strapping youngsters, able
to fight a little for their rights, and
they are not waiting at the foot of the

The straits of Messina are chan-
jels of immense depth, through
'which a wild tide surges, and ewl;;
probably to irregularities at the bot-
tom there' are whirling eddies which
have the effect of bringing up from
the depths below many marine orea-
tares which are rarely seen except
i the epep sea trawls. It was here
that the larval form of a fresh water
eel was first discovered, an incident
which threw a blaze of light on the
life history of a very "mysterious fish.
Al kinds of theories have been
given forth with regard to the propa-
gation of the eel. Some naturalists
declared they bred in fresh water,
others that they visited the estu-
ary for spawning purposes, but
thanks to the discovery off MessIna
and later captures of the eel In Its
larval form it is now practically cer-
tain that after mature eels drop down
our rivers In autumn they hie them
to exceedingly deep water In the sea.
and there deposit their egs. prom
the egg comes a little ribbon shaped
creature, the larval form.
In due coase this changes Into an
eel of still n Wsler sis, strange to
ay and these small eels or elvers af-
terward ascend our rivers and there
remain until they reach maturity
rwen they In their turn descend to
the sea and history is repeated.-
