Scurrying lizards did sentry duty upon its porch, and the predacious ants had eaten into Its woodwork. But to n civil engineer iu the unsettled center of Mexico any shelter Is a matter of gratitude. Dar­ rel and I took possession without any qualms o f guilt, for it was evident that the owner had moved out years be­ fore. While the cook built a tire and prepared dinner in the main room we proceeded to explore, not without cau­ tion, for the old shack looked like a promising resort for snakes. I hail just dispatched a couple that were keeping house in a side room when a shout from Darrel summoned me to the second story. “ Here’s a queer thing to turn up in an abandoned house,” he called. He was bending over a small box bound in liorsehide, the lid of which he had pried open. Together we car­ ried it downstairs and went through the contents. They wore surprising enough; at least it was surprising that the tenants should have left such pa­ pers behind them, for here were deeds to property, leases, some mortgage pa­ pers and other valuable documents, be­ sides a number of family records, all dated many years before, but all in a good state of preservation. What in­ terested me most, however, was a small map drawn on prepared paper, the work of an amateur. Whoever drew it knew something about survey­ ing, for he had his ranges and scales fairly correct. He had started at a spring at the foot of an unlocated hill in the foothills of the San Luis range and run a line up a ravine 520 feet. Then he had run 125 feet up a cross ravine, turning to the left, and had marked a cross on the face of a wall rising sheer ninety feet. Ills marks showed the elevation of this cross to be thirty-two feet above the bed of the ravine. Here was food for speculation. “ Darrel,” said I to my companion, “the man that drew that map didn’t do it for fun.” “ 1 guess that’s right,” replied Dar­ rel. “There’s something behind the place marked by that cross, but what is it?” “ What’s the most likely thing to be in the side of a cliff in this country?” “Oh, I see!” said he. “ A cave, you mean. But what’s in the cave, then?” “ That’s what we’ll find out if we can locate the cave,” said I. Luck was with us in the matter. It wasn’t a week later when one of our surveyors came in with a tale of hav­ ing located a fine spring at the foot of a hill and near one of the wildest ra­ vines that he had ever set eyes on. Neither Darrel nor I rested easy until we were on the way to the spot with the little map tucked under my belt. We were to split even on whatever we found. Poor Darrel! When 1 think of that bargain, I have a chill even to this day. It took us nearly a day on muloback to reach our destination. There were the spring, the hill and the ravine run­ ning back just as in the map. It was one of the wildest spots 1 ever saw in a wild country; one couldn’t help feel­ ing a bit put out with its loneliness. Up the big ravine we trudged until we reached the cross gulch, a sheer cut through the solid rock, the work of centuries of fierce torrents. It took us a long time to make out the cross, as the cliff was in semidark­ ness and patches of moss were grow­ ing over the surface, but we located it at last and saw that the only way to reach it was from the top o f the cliff. Having foreseen this contingency, we had brought along a stout rope, and near the edge of the cliff, which we mounted after a long detour, we found a convenient tree. For one of us to lower the other would be an easy mat­ ter. Both of us were eager to go. Which should it be? The good old American method of a flipped coin was the arbiter, and Darrel won. Present­ ly he was sitting in the bight of the rope before’ the spot where the cross was marked and calling up his reports to me. “ Yes, there’s a cave here all right, but It's walled up. Lower me down that geologist’s hammer of yours, and l can break the flimsy thing in.” \ sent the hammer clown on a string, and for five minutes Darrel hammered and panted, and the sound of crum­ bling masonry told me that he was making headway. Presently there came a sort of gasp from him. “ Phew! That’s bad air! Don’t dan- go in there for a bit.” “Throw In a lighted match, and If it burns the air is pure enough,” 1 called excitedly, for 1 was I 11 a hurry to know what was in that cave. “Tltere she goes.” said Darrel a min GOOD LIVING Quite often results in bad health, because what is termed \good living” is usually the gratification of the palate without reference to the nutrition of the body. When the good liver is a business man and rises from a full meal to plunge at once into work requiring mental effort the result is almost sure to be disastrous, because digestion d r a w s u p o n the same nervous fo r c e s w h i c h are em­ ployed in thought. In time the stom­ ach becomes dis­ ea s.e d , the pro­ cesses of digestion and nutrition are imperfectly p e r ­ formed and there is a p h y s i c a l breakdown. Dr. P i e r c e ’ s G o l d e n Medical Discovery c u r e s d i s e a s e s of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition. It eliminates the effete poisonous matter which originates in the system as a con­ sequence of imperfect digestion. It gives sound health to the whole body. «I wish to say to the world that Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery has proved a greet 11 1 , ute later; “burns all right. Oh, great Caesar!” “ What’s the mutter? What Is It?” 1 cried, dancing on the edge of the cliff. “ It’s gold, that’s what It Is—a big bracelet of it right near the entrance. There’s something that looks like bones near It.” “Just what 1 expected!” I cried jubi­ lantly. “ An Aztec burial cave proba­ bly, and the fellow that drew the map found It out some way. They burled their finest treasures with their dead. It’s a fortune, Darrel.” “Ghastly enough place to find It in, he said. “ But here’s for It anyhow. And he entered the opening that he had made. For what seemed to me long minutes I lay peering over the cliff at the twitching rope that gave Indications of Darrel’s movements. Then there ech­ oed from the opposite side of the ra­ vine a strange souud as of the rattling of many castanets, followed by a shriek of such grisly terror as I never again want to hear. The next instant Darrel plunged forth from the mouth of the cave, swuijg out from the face of the cliff, swung back again against the rock and, still shrieking horribly, so that the ravine reverberated with the sound of it, slipped through the bight of the rope and fell headlong to the rocks below. For a moment I lay there stricken, waiting for 1 knew not what thing of horror to issue from the mysterious cavern. Then I rushed down to the aid of my motionless com­ panion. Half the contents of my flask had been forced down his throat be­ fore he opened his eyes. But not to consciousness did he open them. The glare in them told me that. I tried to recall his mind. “What was it, old man? What was It?” I asked him. lie half raised himself and tried to speak, gasping and choking like a man being strangled. “The hands! The hands o f the-dead! At my throat! They’re throttling me! Help:” lie tore at his throat with mad strength. Then his limbs relaxed, and he fell back in my arms lifeless. 1 believe in my inmost soul that it was not the fall from the cliff, but sheer terror, that killed him. How I ever lived through that fear­ ful, horror haunted ride to the camp I don’t know. I was crazy with fever and delirium when I reached there. It wasn’t till weeks afterward that they told me of the expedition that went out to find and bury Darrel. My ravings and the map that they found when they undressed me gave them a working clew to the tragedy. They found the rope tied to the tree, and two of the men went down and entered the cave armed with stout clubs, for their theory was that poor Darrel had been killed by a venomous snake. That would not have explained his last words, but what they found did. A few yards in from the entrance lay sprawled a heap of articulated skele­ tons. Darrel’s hat was beneath the heap. Groping his way in, he had dis­ placed a slender post which held in place on a shelf above him the grim, dead guardians o f the dead. They had fallen upon the Invader and claimed him for their own. The men searched the cave. Row after row of long dead mummies they found, but little treasure. The brace­ let that had cost Darrel his life and one or two small gold carvings—that was all. But what of the map and the maker of it? Did ho perhaps visit the cave and perish there of terror? Were his bones those that Darrel saw from the entrance of the cave? That is a mystery that I shall never solve—that and that other mystery of who set, against the profaning incursion of the living, that grisly trap of the dead. S a v in g th e M a jo r it y , In early days out west the adminis­ tration of Justice was not, perhaps, all It should have been. When the North­ ern Pacific railroad was in course of construction, Samuel Gustine Thomp­ son, the eminent corporation lawyer, went as far as the railroad would take him in the early days when Jay Cooke was building the Northern Pacific. When he returned, he called on Mr. Cooke at his office In Philadelphia. Mr. Cooke asked him to tell him something about the country. “Can it be possi­ ble,” Mr. Thompson asked him, “that you are putting all your money into a country you have never seen?” Con­ tinuing, Mr. Thompson said; “Ue said it was. I told him this*incident: In one of the sparsely settled districts a man convicted of murder was called up be­ fore the Judge for sentence. The judge angrily began by saying, ‘John Smith, when I ran for office in this district there were seven qualified voters here. Four were Republicans, and three were Democrats. I was a Republican candidate and elected by a majority of one. You have killed that majority, and it is the sentence o f the court’— “ ‘Hold on, judge,' said the culprit; T reckon we can fix that. If you will let me go, I’ll vote the Republican ticket next election.’ “ ‘Sentence suspended,’ said judge, ‘but if I’m not re-elected, God have mercy on your soul.’ ” ■■Chi- cago Chronicle.

One day, on one of the canals, I stumbled and went overboard, and, although there were twelve boat­ men, not one of them would extend me a hand. After a close sliave, as I can­ not swim, I got aboard again, and as soon ns I recovered my breath I yelled at the boss boatman; “ ‘You infernal scoundrel, but why didn’t you help me out?’ “ ‘It was your fate to fall in,’ he calmly replied. “ ‘And it’s your fate to take a good licking!’ I said as I went for him and kicked and cuffed him about. When I had finished him off, I took another, and I was just polishing off my fifth victim when the sixth man halted me to say: “ ‘There seems to be a mistake here. We are taught that if a person falls Into the water he must save himself or drown, but we are not taught that if he docs save himself he is at liberty to lick half of China in revenge.’ “ I thought his point well taken,” laughed the colonel, “ and I stopped my score at five and went down to change Into dry clothes.

That classic stream, the passing of whose water by the city of St. Louis moved the state of Missouri to go to iaw with the state of Illinois for not keeping its nuisance at home, affords a lucrative, employment to a number of men. In the south branch above the drainage canal they are kept busy the day long scooping the top layer of the stream off with buckets and put­ ting it in barrels, in which form it Is sold to puckers at the stockyards to be transformed Into soap.

A n A b a s h e d R e p o r t e r . An amusing incident occurred Just previous to General Hunter’s retire­ ment from the command of the Shen­ andoah army. Like General Grant, it was the habit of Hunter to wear a pri­ vate’s blouse while resting In camp, which made him look like anything but an army commander. One afternoon a correspondent rode up to the line of tents and, seeing a soldier sitting at the foot of a tree quietly smoking a Vir­ ginia corncob pipe, asked where he could find General Hunter. “The old man is somewhere about,” replied the soldier coolly. “ Well, just hold my horse, will you, while I go in search of the general?” “ Certainly,\ and the man rose obedi­ ently and took the bridle. “ General Hunter?” said the adjutant general, when the correspondent re­ newed his inquiry. “ He’s somewhere about. Why, there Ue is, holding that horse. What does it mean?” The correspondent turned on his heel, went to the horse and, mounting, rode off in silence, while the general resum­ ed his seat on the ground and laughed until the tears came into his eyes. The correspondent sought another field for the exercise of his talents, not caring to face the ridicule awaiting him.

Water id one ol Gods good creations lor the good of the public, and is so kept. And no more so thin coal A man s farm may run to the coal mine, hut should no more extend into it thiu his farm should extend into the lake. By all means let the government take possession of our coal mines. Buy them if need be, but, if we can't do that, do as we did with the negroes—confiscate them. Then the melh )ds which these combines employ make it doubly necessary lor the titatc to own them, i. e., the crushing out of competition. If competition were al­ lowed, such a calamity aa now threat ms us would be impossible, lor some owner would treat with some miners and work would be done, aud so the supply would go on, But with combines this is impos­ sible. There is no competition. I have very trequently heard the remark that ‘ ‘ a mau who belongs to a union may refuse to work if he wishes, but that he has no right to hinder another person from working.” But the unions were taught this lesson by the combines. The trusts said, “ We can only live by stopping com­ petition.” I knew a man, and he was a ir.end of mine. He had a small oil refin­ ery and was doing a good business. The trust came and said, “ We will buy your refinery. ” He said, “ I do not care to sell. ” It was not long before his refinery was closed and he a bankrupt. They simply crushed out competition. They did it w nu money. Money was their force. The unions say, We have learned the lefcson from the trusts. We cannot allow competition. Our only safety is in crushing out competi­ tion. we have no money to buy out com­ petitors, and so the force we must use is phjsical force,” and so they say to com­ petitors, “ We shall not let you work.” Who can blame them for using the weapons put into their hands by the trusts and com­ binations of capital. Self-preservation is the first law In nature, and this is the only method of self-preservation. 1 am not going to anathemitize the mine owners. We may call them “ bloated bond­ holders,” or “ coal barons,” or anything we please. This does not remedy the situa­ tion. They have taken advantage of wrong conditions, as any of us would do if we had the brains and the money. What we want to do as a people is to change the conditions. Compel Congress to restore the mines to their rightful owner, the gov­ ernment. Then there will be no fear of any such condition as now confronts us. Tnen our coal can be bought for a small advance on the cost of production, and the right of the people, lor which governments exist, will be conserved and protected. If this happy result shall be reached on ac­ count of this strike, then will the strike be one of the greatest blessings ever thrust upon us. If, on the other hand, no such result is reached, the miners will be starved into obedience, the price of coal will ad­ vance so the owners will be compensated lor any loss of interest on their investments 1 they may have sustained, and a similar condition prevail next year, and so on, year alter year.

One clay last week a woman entered n trolley ear in the Ridgewood station, on the outskirts of Brooklyn. She was accompanied by three very small chil­ dren and a larger son. The boy was about fifteen years old and one of those long, lanky fellows who haven’t had time to grow in all directions. He was very tall. The car was empty. The mother told him to stretch himself out full length on one of the seats. Then she instruct­ ed the three other children to sit on him. When the conductor came to collect the fare, the woman handed him fi cents. “ What do you mean by this?” shout­ ed the conductor. “I suppose you want nie to believe he is under age?” “Certainly,” replied the jolly matron. “Isn’t he under three?”—New York Times. ♦ 9 A n V n n e a a l C o n t r ib u t io n . A number of years ago Mr. and Mrs. Leland Stanford were traveling through the middle west incognito. They hap­ pened to he in Bloomington, Ind., one Sunday and, pursuant to their usual custom, went to church. They attend­ ed the Christian church of Blooming­ ton, then largely in the hands of Amzi Atwater. When the plate was passed tor the collection, Mrs. Stanford drop­ ped in a ten dollar goldpiece. Mr. At­ water was the deacon in charge of the collection taking. It was noticed that the ushers held a hurried conference with him when the money was taken forward. At Us conclusion Mr. Atwater said: “Ladies and gentlemen, there has evi­ dently been a mistake. Some one lias dropped a ten dollar goldpiece into the collection. If lie will pass up after the services, we will be glad to allow him to exchange it for the amount he in­ tended to give.” It Is, of course, needless to say that Mrs. Stanford did not take advantage of the opportunity. T h e C o a l S t r ik e . S u p e r s t i t i o n s A b o u t B a b ie s . The Manx people believe that it will dwarf or wizen a baby if any one steps over it or walks around It. In some parts of England people bind the In­ fant’s right hand, so that it may have riches when it grows up. In York­ shire a newborn babe is placed in a maiden’s arms before being touched by any one else in order to insure good luck. In South America a book, a piece of money ana a bottle o f liquor arc placed before the Infant the day it is one year old to ascertain its bent in life. In Scotland a baby Is considered lucky if it handles its spoon with its left hand, and It will be perfectly hap­ py and successful if it ,has a number of falls before its first birthday. In the north of England, when a child Is taken from a house for the first time, it is given an egg, some salt and a small loaf of bread and occasionally u small piece of money to insure it against coming to want. T h e Drenme ol Infancy. When babies smile in their sleep, some will say angels are whispering to them, yet when they are old enough, though not yet out of the age of Inno­ cence, to repeat their dreams It Is not always of angels that these are found to have been. Not always are they de­ rived from fleeting, unconscious recol­ lections o f the home whence they have so lately come. On the contrary. It is chiefly, as Charles Lamb observes, during the period of sinless infancy that shapes o f terror will intrude upon the midnight pillow; that the slumber- er will start from dreams “ to which the reveries of the cell damned mur­ derer are tranquillity.” IIow vividly does the gentle essayist recall these helpless agonies of his own infancy. We almost fancy we can see him start from slumber on some murky night with a dread foreboding, which was sure to realize itself, of seeing some frightful specter. Possibly there is no movement of an eco­ nomic nature which has interested more people than the present coal strike. It will not be long before winter will be upon us, and millions of people will be affected and probably thousands actually suffer, and no doubt many perish, because of this strike. Of course all sorts of opinions ate enter­ tained and expressed. The wealthy and those who employ labor will veiy naturally feel as some say, “ Make the rascals work; drive them to it.” Others who earn their bread by the sweat of their brow sympa­ thize with the workingmen. There is another large class of people who are fairly well-to-do, who know what it is both to employ help and who have at times worked for wages, who are able to take a more candid view of the situation and see that there is fault on both sides of this present movement. Many of the miners are no doubt hard to get along with. They spend much of their money for drink, and are drunk and useless when most required for work. Meny o f them are turbulent and try to stir up animosity among the more quiet and industrious. They are not all of this class, and even if they were they are men and have a right to their manhood and a right to assert it, and as men they have a real grievance. It may be better for the men to buy their goods at the company’s store, and so be kept out of the way of temptation from the hellish saloons which are waiting to catch them, but men do not care te be forced to buy goods at any place. There is nothing dearer to any man than liberty. He may be very low down in the scale, but he likes his liberty and his manhood. The coal mine owners have something over which to arbitrate, and though they may assert there is nothing and refuse to listen to any overtures, the public know there is something and will hold them to account. The whole thing involves a wider ques­ tion, and if this opens the question in such a way that the public shall see it, and take hold of it, the strike will be a great boon to the American people. The question Is: What right have a few men to own and control the coal mines? It is probably best that the surface ot the earth be divided into farms and that private in­ dividuals own certain portions o f the land, though there should be a law proscribing even this, but that a man should own what God has put in the bowels of the earth for the benefit of all his children is entirely wrong. Why should not our government, like the government of many other coun­ tries, reserve these mines and oil fields? The owner of the surface might have a good royalty for the mine discovered under his land, and the discoverer might be well re­ warded, but the government should own and control all of the mines. If a number of men have a right to own the mines, then one man has that right. Indeed I suppose, with the combine as now organized, a very few men, if not one master mind, controls them now. Here we are with 80 , 000,000 of people. Three-fourths of these are are dependent on coal for fuel. Without coal thousands and millions would perish with cold. Suppose the owner of these mines should refuse to mine any more coal, or choose to take a trip to Europe and close all his mines for one year, what would be the state of affairs? The optimist says, “ Oh, such a state of affairs will never arise.\ Such a state of affairs is upon us now, and these rich men, with coal enough to keep them warm and money enough to keep the wolf from the door if no more coal were mined within the next five years, may say “ We do not care to mine any more coal for the present.” What could the public do ? Freezel It they have a right to the coal mines Lingering Summer Co’ds. Don’t let a cold run atthtoseason. Sum­ mer colds are the hardest kind to cure,and if neglected may linger along for months.

Taking all the different schools o f med­ icine, including those called irregulars, the Christian Scientists, Magnetic Healers, Os­ teopaths have failed to give us any surety o f perfect diagnosis and treatment o f disease. They make lamentable failures as yet, showing their knowledge very imper­ fect and not to be relied upon. We still have heart disease, sugar diabetes, Bright’s disease, dyspepsia, rheumatism, paralysis and all other various Ills that seem to baffle the skill o f the phys­ ician to rightly name the disease or perform a cure. First, we are avfare that wisdom and knowledge are the result o f long years of toil and research, and that deep down in human life the loftiest truths are born. Dr. Butterfield starts out from a different standpoint, basing his knowledge upont spiritual insight into the causes o f you condition and the reasons for your suffer- mg. This spiritual insight is the incentive to all progress and Is the one method by which the right remedies can be used to suit the case. The Doctor has been coming to Penn Yan foreight years, and has cured hundreds o f cases that have come to him as a last re­ sort, and he has cured where all others had failed and hope had gone. He uses vegetable remedies entirely, which are as natural as fruit, in the system. They can be taken by any one, no matter how delicate the stomach. The Doctor cures some o f the worst cases o f kidney and bladder trouble, enlarged liver ana heart disease, dyspepsia, rheumatism and all other forms o f chronic diseases.
