One More Mustered Out.,
Another of the great chieftains of
the late civil war has fallen before-
the arch-enemy of all mankind.
With Gen. Johnston passes away
one of the greatest military leaders
developed by the conflict between
the States. Some. of the military
authorities pronounce Gen. Johnston
the greatest commander on either,
side. Certainly he was very adroit in
strategetic maneuvers.
In many respects his methods of
handling men are said to have
greatly resembled the tactics of
Gen. Washington. Indeed he was-
frequently compared to the Father
of his Country," not altogether .to
the disadvantage of the, former.
Presumptively competent judges re-
peatedly stated that had Gen. John-
ston held full command of the'Con-
federate forces he might have proven
even more successful than Gen. Lee,
with the effect of altering the re-
sult of the war. However that mray
be, he is generally conceded- to have
been an exceptionally capable leader.
Though not dashing like Jeb"
Stuart nor deadly sure like Stoiae-
wall Jackson, he was so thoroughly
skilled in the science of war that he
siezed his opportunities and handled
his men with the ease and dling
effect of a trained chess player.
In civil life he was known as a
capable, business man and a -fitY
genial gentleman. Since the war
he has made almost as'many friends
in political life as he previously had
in the army.- Manyof the staunchest
among them ware -his former ad-
versaries. Quite a; remarkable friend-
ship was-found between the deceased
and Sherman, which only terminated,
with the life of the Litter. 'It was at
the Sherman obsequies that Gen.'
'Johnston is supposed to have con-
tracted the cold which -lit about
his death. ,
There' is, something", ,inc ulnrly
striking in the strong "firiendships
formed between these old war veter-
ans, who fought against one a n,)ther.
It Was also a,:lmira->l,, as-,it ,was
strange. Itdemonstrates the natural
sympathy betw_,n coulra.us ,men.,

glow! \When we discover mental
power or moral loveliness, or both
together, under a repulsive mask,
the reaction in its owner's favor is
proportional to our former dislike.

not so much t0 punish:human brutes

inculcated a more humane seUtiment
in the heart of those who haye, the

cruelty is a-crime and tfli:t kindness

FER.NAN.iNA, FLA., MAIIt-'i 24,

It the election of Judgo William A.
Peffer to the Unithx States senate,
Kanns, for the first time in her history,
chose a senator without the aid of the
Republican party.
Wkitharbas never been a rich uin in
one seme. In te other, perhaps truer
sense, of having simple wanLs and tastes,
be ti well off. Between 50,000 and 60,-
copie of hi works are steadily t,,ld, and
wlln continue to be sold, it is hopcd, for
centuries to come, particularly his poems
of nature and patriotism. The copy-
right on his works holds good for some
years yet
The Philulelph'ia Telh-raLi says that
whea Senator Ingalls rcsitivil the presi-
dency pro term, of the seBuito, his farewell
speech suggested that a greater man was
retiring from that presidential chair
than had ever filled it, This recalls the
quotaion from Macbeth, "Nothing so
became his life as his leaving it." But
John James Ingals is not dead yet or
even an old man. He has magnificent
literary ability, and has shown himself
an orator. If ,he will only curb that
caustio tongue it may well be that his
boot days are yet before him.
The Terrible Car Stove.
A tragic interest will long hang around
the tunnel in New York city where six
persons were roasted alire in sight of
spectators powerless to help them. That
they were employes of the road in whose
.cars they died this awful death adds to
the horror of the case. The New York
law requires that cars shall not be heat-
ed by stoves. The manner in which the
road in question complied with the law
was to plant a huge coal heater in one
end of the car, and have hot water pipes
running from this heater around the car.
Thus itbcould be said that the passenger
coaches of the road were heated with
hot water.
This horrible roasting of helpless vic-
tims.may or may not call the attention
of the public in other states to the fact
that most of the railway cars in the
Union are heated in as dangerous a way
as the splendid Pullman coaches which
took fire in the New York tunnel. Many
of them, indeed, have not even inclosed
iron heaters. The stove in all its fiend-
ishness stands out in plain sight. It is
true that collisions do not take place
every day, but in view of the fact that
several thousand persons lost their lives
in railway accidents in the United States
last year, and of the additional fact that
many of them were burned to death
just as the tunnel victims were, the law
in each state should take hold of this
matter here and now.
A, collision, a slight shaking up, even,
upsets the stove or spills burning coals
from it. The ordinary passenger coach
is little else than a tinder box, with its
dry, light wood, its paint and varnish,
and the victims are penned down and
roasted in no time. It is a pity, indeed
it is, that the spirits of those who have
thus been done to death in flames cannot
haunt the officers of railroad companies
till they abolish the demoniacal car stove.

S Strata of "Water.
The; theory has been advanced that the
,earth abounds to an extent more than is
now believed in undergrouudrivers which
flow in various, directions at different
depths. WhV~at becomes, for instance, of
the waters that melt from the everlast-
ing snows of mountain tops? They do
-not anl runoff upon the surface, that is
plain. -Rivers have frequently been dis-
Scovered in caveS far under ground, rivers
that had, as far as could-be found, no
outlet, yet they flowed on with a current
as s-wift as thatof. streams above ground.
Itris now commonly believed that as
strata of different geological formations
Sof rock and soil lie 0oe 'Upon another, sO
there are deep in the earth strata of water

among the layers of soil and rock. "Sink
. holes,, portions of earth that seem to
fall down below the surrounding parts,
bear put the idea of underground waters.
They can never be filled, no matter how
much debris is thrown into. them,, and
the belief is current that here the crnti
of earth is thin above, the' underground
stream. One explorer of subterranean
w waters claims that there is "at least as
-; much water in the underground river
streams and lakes as-there is upon the
surface. He himself'-is -confident that
he has located and traced for a distance
of eighteeri miles, one stream in Dakota
which is from tien to fift-fry-e fee! wide
and over four feet deep-.
From these subterranean streams,.the
water for irrigating the arid plains of
the west will be. obtained, it is expecte,1.
Inmountainous 'eiius the subterranean
streams will 'be foiud to take their
. origin- if, then, shafts are; "sunk -and
-,' tunnel! dug in the proper. direction an
-exhilustless supply of water can be ob-
gained from this underflotsw. The undr-
'. flow of water is, in' fakt, now earnestly
..engaging the attention, of the United
States department of amrtO ult hre.. .
Artesian wells,u and --rservoir:
"near the head waters of- rivers'- are- the
means looked to to irrigate the great
:- .wess, and perhap-in time many parts of
the east, too. Persons with ib'ains in
their heads are beginning to wonder se-

The Four Imprisoned Miners.
No more thrilling t-ale has been told
recently than that of the four men res-
cued from the coal mine at Jo-anesville,
Pa Away down 6W0 feet below the
surface of the earth, three-quarters of a
mile from the entrance shaft, miners
were dclNiug at the coal seams as usual
one day. Suddenly, without a moment's|
warning, a idluge of water broke,
through from a shaft of an abandoned
mine. What started it will never be
knoin, probably. In five minutes it
was 200 feet deep in the lower portion.3!
of the mine, though minors neandet the
shaft escaped. When the roll canmo to
be called eighteen were u-ii,.iir-. Such
of these as were not drowned 1)y the
flood NoNl, naturally seek refuge in the
higher p.sa.iageways leading off from the
level. The mine was honeycombed with
these, for it had been worked nearly
fifty years.
The water had filled the main shaft to
a third of its depth. But there was one
thing it conld not do. When it rushed
in a mighty torrent into the mine it
drove the air before it up the narrow
pas.sagcways and packed it into the ends
of these. The water could not go
th.roug.h the air. It could drive it over
upon itself and compress it, but the
more the air was compressed the more
it resisted the water, till at Last the air
kept the water out of the further end of
the passageways as effectually as if it
had been a wall of brick and mortar.
That saved the lives of the four who
were rescued. It gave them air of a
pressure of four atmospheres to breathe,
but it saved them.
Great engines, pumping 2,000 gallons
a minute, were put to work, and 'the
pumps throbbed day and night. The
mine must be cleared and the bodies of
those who had been drowned brought
out and buried. Half a mouth went on,
and the pumps only then ceased to throb.
The water was low enough to search for
the bodies. Several were found. In one
spot it was plain that 'a fire had been
kindled, and that had caused the death
of four men who had clustered around
it. The flames had consumed the oxygen
in the confined air of the "pocket" in
which they were inclosed, and the men
were slowly asphyxiated to their deathl.
The search went on until the bodies of
all but four had been found. The res-
cuers themselves braved death a hun-
dred times a day from suffocation in the
close air, but the work did not stop a
The full dangers and difficulties of
that dread search cannot be fully told.
A line of pickets over the whole three-
quarters of a mile to the entrance of the
mine was kept constantly on the alert.
Once a minute, day and night, the sig-
nal passed from man to man, "All
right" They will hear it in their dreams
for months to come, those brave fell0^ .
The nineteenth day came. At 8 o'clock
in the evening the workers stood in front
of "breast No. 5." Suddenly the face of
one of them blanched and his eyes
.blazed. He spoke, and this is what he
said, "I heard somethingI"
Then through a passageway only
three feet high they crawled, over jagged
coal and slate, their clothes torn, their
hands bleeding, and brought the four
living men out of their prison. -
In the first days of their imprisonment
the four men had found a little food in
their dinner pails. .Then the.js.rongest
one of them killed rats, with which th
,mine was infested.- They "ate the !egs of
"these rats, as. epicures eat. frogs' legs,
and that kept, the life in them; But at
the same time it requiired all the feeble
strength that was in them to keep the
Sratis from eating them. At last only.
hop)e:was left them, and they lived, on
that till, rescue~came. Ten,,erly as-new
born infants- t]e four saved, men were
, conveyed to" a landing in ,the upward
"shaft.. They were'too exhausted to be
taken farther. ,.
- At 2 o'clock in the morning the rescu-
ing party ascended to the surface, 'black-
, ened, begrimed and bleeding, themselves
"exhausted al mo.-t to the :'point of faint-

ing. Their thoughts turned then to
'whereall men's,-thoughts. fly in times
alike of great fear -or great joy, to ihe
dread unfathomabl6Seo iioce of all that is,
was or shall be.. They stopped,_ before
the house of the senior member ,of the
com pany, and ther- in the darkness, With
all their souls in their'- voices, sang
'-Praise God, from, whom all bie:-sings

Particulars Concerning Snow Storms.
"Snow!" said a man with a turned
down fold in his left ear to a quiet pas
senger who sat beside him; "you don't
call this snow? Ever been out in Colo-
rado? No? Well, spring before last vte
had a snowfall in Denver-28th of April,
it was-and the street cars ran in tun-
nels through the city for four months.
Weather Why, yQu don't have enough
to send flies on a vacation. That's the
place---coldest winter you ever heard of,
and hottest summer right on top of it.
Sudden change middle o' May, and the
ground was cracked with the heat by
the 1st of June."
"But what became of the snow?"
"Packed. Heat melted it on top and
water froze on the way down. 'Twas a
bad winter to cut ice on account of the
snowstorms, and the railroad company
made a fortune in July selling hunks of
the tunnel to butchers and saloon keep-
"My friend," said the quiet passenger,
as his eyes grew moist, "I've got a boy
at home who has tried every business
under the sun and succeeded in none of
them. Will you try and teach him your
trade?" I
"What d'ye mean?" asked the man
with the reference ear.
"I'd like to have him learn to lie," re-
plied the quiet passenger. "If-he can
equal you I'll buy him a phonograph
and set him up in the museum business."
But the weather critic had reached
his station. -!Brooklyn Eagle.
The Secret of One Man's Success.
A young man who lives on the heights,
who is famed for the good taste which he
invariably displays in his dress,was asked
the other. day if there was any secret
in the absolute correctness ,with which
he always enveloped himself. He hesi-
tated a moment, but finally replied, "Cer-
tainly there is, my dear fellow,,but if I
toll you, you know, you mustn't give it
away.. It is just this way. When I de-
termine to buy me a new hat I don't go
to my hatter's anid allow myself to be bul-
lied into ordering something I do not
want. Oh, dear, no. I take a stroll'up
the avenue and examine all the hats that
are worth considering. I always look at
the men who are just my size, and when
I see a man who has a hat on fhat just
suits me I march down to the Uatter's
with the image of that particular hat in-
delibly impressed on my mind, and in-
sist upon getting one just like it. :'
"I follow out thesameplan with all of
my clothes. So that whenil enter a tail-
or's shop I know exactly what I want and
never think of ordering until, I have
found the exact thing, but when'once'
found I order at once. So that while I.
have the reputation among my trades-
men of being very particular-which is
a good,thing by the way-they like me
because I know just what I want."-
Brooklyn Life. -
,The Dollar Mark.
Writers are not agreed as to the der-
ivation, of the sigu to represent the.
word "dollar" or "dollars." Some con-
tend that it comes from the letters U
and S, which, after the adoption of the
federal constitution, were prefixed to:
the currency of the new United States,
and-which afterward, in the hurry of
writing, were run into each other, the
I being made first and the S over it.
Others say that the contraction is from
the Spanish pesos, dollars; others, still,
claim it to be derived from the Spanish
word fuertes, meaning hard, so called
to designate silver and gold from paper
or soft money. The more plausible ex-
planation of the puzzle is this: That it is
a modification of the, figure 8, and that
the character, as vwe make it, denotes
that we are speaking or writing of a
sUm of money equal-to eight reals; or,
as the dollar was formerly calledla piece
of eight.--St. Louis Republic.-' :
h- Belief in a Future state.

It is curious and interesting to note
that the British Columbian tribe of the
Shanakons have a soul belief which is an
almost exact counterpart of that cher-
ished by the old Israelites. They believe
that eve-ry being has its double or shadow,
thin. pale figure, seldom or never seen
by mortal eyes, which after death de-
scends to an abode beneath the earth
and there leads a -ad anU1 .l,,INmy ex-
istence. The Israelites calk-.. this, place

The Insect World.
Eutmnologists generally concede that
upward of 100,000 species of insects have
been recofgnizc.l and classified; some au-
thors even place the number as high as
150,000, while it is not at all improbable
that this vast number may not represent
more than one-tenth of the nuramber ac-
tually inhabiting the globe. Not less
than one-half of the whole number be-
long to the order coleopatera, or beetles,
which order is by far the most numer-
ously represented of all. The lepidop-
tern, or butterflies, have thus far yielded
some 15,00O species, or about one-thir-
teenth of the total number (200,000), esti-
mated by Speyer for the world at large,
and an equal number may perhaps be
credited to thoehymenoptera (bees, wasps,
etc.), the hemiptera (bugs) and diptera
The orthoptera or straight winged in-
sects, which include the locusts, grass-
hoppers, etc., are considerably less nu-
merous. The species with netted wings
(neuroptera) probably number some place
between 2,000 and 8,000. Insects are, of
course, most numnerously developed in
the tropics, but they are not rare by any
means in the coldest regions which have
yet been visited by man.-St. Louis Re-
Peculiar Taste in Dress.
Sir Humphrey Davy, it is said, "rarely
washed himself; and on the plea of sav-
ing time he used to put on his .clean linen
over his dirty, so that he has been known
to wear at, the same time five shirts and
five pairs of stockings." Here is a rare
example of the indifference of the man
of genius to the mere husk, or series of
husks, which keep that royal part of
him, his mind, in working order. Yet
was not Sir Humphrey a mere sloven,
content at all times,with the first article
of clothing upon which he might lay his
hand. Though he was. so reckless in the
matter of shirts upon comrmon-occasions,
when he used to..go fishing "he, would
wear green," to resemble vegetable life
as much as possible, so that the trout
might have some difficulty in distin-
guishing the biped from the mere roots of
the field;, and when shooting he wore a
scarlet cap, "to shield himself from acci-
dent from other guns."-All the Year
In- every town 'of good size in Mexico
there are'iublic schools. These are Well
attended, though most of the rich Mexi-
cans send their children to the schools of
the City of Mexico or to foreign coun-
tries, or have private teachers for them;
4nd to. finish their education they are
often sent to Europe or the United
States. Thegreat majority are left at
home, however, and the scbhwls are well
filled. .
In a very judicious dietetic outline for
reducing .obesity, from- ten to twenty,
drops of liquor potassse are given in a
glass of water three ,times a day, and the
food is largely composed of uncooked
local fruits, lemons, oranges, succulent
salad vegetables, acid wines, lean meat,
white blooded fish, game, -and poultry,
lemonade, Iuittermilk, and tea and toast.

Art is always its own best reward, and
the poet's d-arest object in life must
always be to give to the world "the
message.that in him burns." Still, he
needs friends, requires, leisure;, wants
bread. Thackeray onc- wrote to a
friend, IOur wopenny repiltations get
us at leasttwopence-halfpenny." .- -

One peculiarity of the principal dances.
of savage nations is'that in. nearly every
instance they imitate the mnvementseof
animals. This is evidenced in the buf-
falo and biea dances of the-North Amer--
ican Induins, the bear dance of the
Kamtchttkans and the kangaroo dance
of the aboriginal Australians.

Bells are mostly cast from a composi-
.tion of copper and tin, though other 'in-
gredients :are- often-.used. When the
right proportions of these two metals are
'combined and reduced by intense heat

MIS BMo8 GA 1 t1hs "saAwLrY."
His trips to Mis KJingaley's flat were a
never ending source of delight to "Shaw-
ley," whose correct name, by the way,
was Karl. Like many other maiden lad-
los, Mips Kungaley deleted children, and
though "Shawley" did the work of three
of four men, still, on account of his size,
and particularly on account of his ac-
ttious, he was nothing but an intensely
disagreeable boy in the eyea of "die alter
jungfrau," as she was known at "Shaw-
ley's" store.
One day, while the poor lady was suf-
fering from a particularly bad state of
nervousness, "Shawley" came thumping
up the stairway with a big basketful of
potatoes for the Kingaley household. He
had been told scores of times to send his
goods up by the dumbwaiter; but, like a
true ,ocery boy, he did just the oppo
site, though it caused him a good deal of
extra trouble. With an exclamation of
rage Miss Kingsley flew out into the hall
just in time to see the boy mounting the
last step. Startled by the sadden appear-
ance of his angry customer, and com-
pletely ,taken by surprise, "Shawley"
stumbled and, losing his hold, tumbled
down the stairs, with the big basket on
top of him.
Miss Kingsley, grimly observing that
it served him right, bounced back into
her sitting rooms. As for "Shawley," he
lay wonderfully still for a German gro-
cery boy. It was dark in the hall, other-
wise it might have been seen that his-
usually red cheeks had very suddenly
lost all their color. After a few minutes,
however, during which the people on the
floor stood by laughing, "Shawley"man-
aged to get up. He gathered in asmany
of his potatoes as he could find, though it
/ gave him a queer pain to stoop, and then
he tried' to carry the basket up again.
But he couldn't.,
So he left it where it was, and, still
with that queer pain which almost made
him cry with every step, he slowly walked
back to the store. Next day it was said
that "Shawley" was sick in bed, and a
week later a hearse drove up to the side
door back of the grocery and carried
the little cottontop" away to the Luther-
an cemetery.. wh h
.0Mis Kingsley, who is a thoroughly
good hearted lady, was inexpressibly.
shocked. And then came the "hant."
Not at midnight, nor even after dark,
but in broad daylight. Every grocery
boy who delivered her groceries was a
living image of "Shawley." They called
themselves "Ernest" and "Yake" and
S."Hiney" and "Willie," and,, they all
Ssmiledat Miss'Kingsley's- startled looks
w. when she first saw them, but the good
lady knew that they were all "Shawley."
At first Martha waxed pathetically
Earnest in-'trying to dissuade her inmis-
tess from believing in this illusion.
,. The doctor found that. his patient was-
suffering from hysterical mania, caused
Sby incessant worrying over poor, "Sbaw-
: ley's" death. In tfhis.state it was not rn-
S natural that she should imagine herself
haunted by the appearance of the other
... grocery boys, who generally resemble
one another.as' closely as two peasin a
p, od. The doctor, likeMiss Kingsley's
S friends, tried to show'her that she was
S' deceived by this resemblance, but so far

Between the Devil and the Deep Sea.
The meaning of the phrase, "Bo-
tween the devil and the deep sea'"
is apparent to be between dangers
of equal magnitu'dc. But the real
origin of the phrase is not easily
found. The first use of the expres-
sion it can find in literature is in a
Work printed in London in 1687,
entitled, Expedition with Mackay's
Regiment," by Colonel Monroe.
This regiment was with the army of
Gustavus Adolphus, and was engaged
in battle with the Austrians. The
Swedish gunners did not elevate their
guns properly, so their shot fell into
the ranks of their allies. The Scot-
tish Regiment, therefore, with the
enemy on one side, and on the other
side the blundering gunners of the
Swedes, was, says the historian, "be-
tween the devil and the- deep sea."
B~ut the phrase was probably an old
one at that time, and may even go
back to the time of the Hebrew exo-
dus, when the Isracelites had the
Sea in front and Pharaoh and hi8
army behind them.-Inter-Ocean.
Misuse of Idioms.
The mistake of ty0os in the use of
foreign idioms '.will never ucase to ice
amusing, says the Eipochl. The ful-
lowing actually uccured in U se c''i "
of an ocean Atvam(er; A young
Arhericni gendem..t e.ngaged in
serious convers.ition with a French
lady, thinking to pay her a compli-
ment, because of the wisdom she
was displaying, said: Madame,
vouz etes une sage frhnqie." In tuai.-
of smiling ant'acknowledgement, .as
was her custom on such occasions,
madame marched away in' high
dudgeon. No wonder. The un-
; fortunate young man had called her
'a midwife. Had he said femrnme
sage, madamo would probably have
U,,fnderstood -him correctly, though
even then sage thus applied to- a
woman more often moans virtuous
than wise. =
Canine Intelligence.
One of the intelligent dogs lives in Bar
Hiarbor,Me. He was carrying a paper
the other day when several canine com-
panions 'began to bother him. He put
the paper down ontthe ground, and when
a dog" attempted to touch it sprang on
him and gave him a good shaking. These
"tactics he repeated several times, till at

last he could not get any dog to touch
the paper, and then he quickly picked it
up and walked away.4-Kenneboec Jour-
