These two young ladies were charm

where they had dwelt for the last year

every oomfort and convenience for
country life, but Helen Willonghby
being especially fond of soeioty, and
her brother being absent on a yacht

Many Emigrants Land Owner.
It is a curious fact, observes the
Chicago News, t lint the proportion of
uutivo Americans who own tho farms
they occupy is exceeded by emigrants
from all tho countries mentioned ex
cept Italy, tho percentoge for native
owners being G9.35 and for the Ital
ians 67-57. The Irish are credited
with the highest percentage of owncru
among the farming population. Nearly
eighty.seven out of each 100 IriBh
own the farms they cultivate, but.
of the owners of homes tho Germane
and the Scandinavians only exceed the
native Americana. Another inter
esting fact is that ownership is more
geuerul among women thun among
men. Of course not nearly as many
farms and homes stand iu tho name
of women as of men, tho ownership
being divided between the two sexes
iu the proportion of 82.75 per cent to
tho men and 17 23 per cent to the
women. Of the farms 90. ti per cent
are owned by men and 9. 04 per cent
by women. Of tho homes 74.fil pel
cent are owned by men and 25. 11 per
cent by women; that is to say, of tho
7,922,07.1 homes in tho I'nited States
slightly more than one-quarter me
owned by women, aud of tho 4, 7J7,
179 farms about one-tenth are owned
by women. This largo proportion is
undoubtedly due to the common prac
tice of making reul estate investments
iu the name of the wife or mother of
the family or at least giving her a
title to her home.

A RIVER'S PRANK.
Remarkable MiBhap to Big Kan
A. Once Lively Town Eaten Up by
In tho story of the riso and fall of
Weutei n boom towns within the past
generation there is one strange history
thut has never been written the pass
ug of Elwood, Kan.
The Missourfriver.twenty feet deep,
rolls aud gurgles and foams over the
spot that was onco tho main street.
Whero hustling merchants once dis
played their wares in commodious
houses, aud the hardy plainsman'
bumped elbows with the moneyed
tenderfoot fresh from the East, the
broad and erratic river flows today.
Tho corner lots that once flitted back
and forth in tho real estate exchange
have been glimmering liko the will o'
the wisp of tho gold seekers gone to
make sands on the seashore. El

Oue Seth Allen, whose memory is
still revered along with that of his
turned colouial ancestors, of whom he
ofteu bousted, flung his lank frame
from a prairie schooner at the door of
the principal tavern on the eustern
shore one spring day in the early '50s,
swearing ho would go no further. Tho
emigrants of whose party he had been
one recuperated a few days, and then
started for the gold fields. Allen
stood on the river bank and watched
tho wagons across tho stream; ho
stood on tho bank and watched them
touch the farther shore. Then, it is
presumed an idea occurred to him
that the western side of the Missouri
Kiver was tho proper place for emi
grants to outfit and rarike their de
parture. At any rate, few days passed before
a wooden building, with the sign,
"Last Chaneo Tuvern," swinging from
tho door, stood on the pleasant
prairie across from St. Josoph. Other
houses soon clustered around Tavern
Keeper Allen's, and Yankee industry,
combined with foreigu capital, had a
lino of ferry steamers sturdy stern
wheelers - actively churning tho
muddy waters of the Missouri into
foa in before tho summer was dead.
Elwood grew grew and prospered.
Truly, it filled a long-felt want.
Tho next year overland traih'o iu
ereused. Long curavane came and
went; settlers aud pioneers cmne and
reniuiucd. Tho bustling real estate
agent, tho honest home-seeker, the
rakish river gambler, tho arsonal-be-girdled
terror, the nondescript hanger-on,
nil drifted into Elwood.
The great Western Hotel, the finest
structure of its kind anywhere on the
river, was built, nud old timers of this
city former residents of Elwood, who
cuine and went with its powers and
glory today relate many wonderful
tales of the revels that went on be
neath its prosperous roof.
Little by little the best part of El
wood crumbled and was swept into the
stream. Today there is but little of
the once prosperous town left stand
ing. One of the most interesting of
the old landmarks yet remaining is
the Elwood jail, built on laud high
and dry, far removed from tho river
bank. Within its narrow confines
many a tough character haR been
thrust by the town marshal.
As the place looks today, it presents
the appearance of a deserted village.
Tho houses uow standing were in the
suburbs before tho course of the river
was changed. Tho greatest evidence
of life that is there now is the depot
of the St. Joseph and Grand Island
Railroad Company, which is about a
ratio from the original town site.
This road was built after Elwood was
on the wane. The few remaining
houses are occupied by fishermen and
the people who eke out a precarious
existence by doing odd jobs in the
city across the river. St. Louis Ee
publie. "Confidence" In Business.
Money only performs five per cent,
of the busiuess of the country. Ninety
five per cent, of it is done with nego
tiable paper, notes, houds and other
instruments. Behind them all is con
fidence, and it is remarkable how
much contidouco does in the trans
actions. A remarkable illustration of
this confidenoe oaine under my obser
vation several years ago, and as it
tells by itself more than a long speech,
I give it to you as it actually oc
curred: A prominent financial man
wanteJ to make a loan. He had as
collateral ono million dollars in guar
antied railroad bonds. They were in
denomination of oue thousand dollar.-,
each, and there were one thou
sand of them in the box. Fire hun
dud thousand dollars was the amount
needed on them, and one of tho big
life insurance companies of New York
took the loan and advanced the
money. One year afterward the loan was
puid aud the collateral was returned.
Now, tho strange part of tho transac
tion was the foot that tho insurance
coiupuny udvanccd the money on the
statement of the borrower thut the
bonds wero in tho box. The box was
never opened, and yet confidence in
the borrower was so strong that dur
ing tho year tho unopened box was
used as collateral in at least three
financial transactions. It is this con
fidence that all should encourage, for
without it, as I said before, only five
per cent, of the value of business of
this country could be performed. The
amount of money in circulation plays
but a little part in transaetious.exoept
iu paying wages and daily expenses.
Maybe I should add that the man who
secured the loan wus the late Senator
Leiund Stanford of California. This
is by no means a rare case, for thero
are hundreds of similar cases iu New
York and other lurgo cities every day,
though the loans may be not so large.
The financial world deals iu the state
ments of those who borrow rather than
by examining and couuliug out the
collateral. It knows that without
confidence business cannot be transacted-
The Four-leaf Clover Habit.
"The hardest habit to break I ever
contracted was the four-leaf clover
habit," said L. D. Smithson of In
dianapolis at tho Raleigh. "I was
spending a mouth in the country
with a pleasant party of friends,
when one of them came iu very much
elated over finding clover with four
leaves, which, as is well known, is
supposed to bring tho best of luck to
the finder. The result was that all of
us hunted up clover patches and
started to search for four-leafed
clovers. Some of us found them,
while others did not, and the hunt
was resumed tho next day. At first I
was indifferent as to whether I found
any or not, but, after I had picked
tho first oue, the habit grew upon
me until I dreamed of four-leafed
clovers at night and watched for
them wherever I went during the
day. There were ten people in the
house and every one of them wus
clover crazy iusida of two days. I
have been awuy from thero for two
months and have steadfastly avoided
hunting for clovers, but I cannot
see a clump of the plants without care
fully scrutinizing it to see if there
are any with four leaves. And, by the
way, I never hud its good luck iu my
life as since I began to find four
leafed clovers." Washington Star.
About foal Mining Industry.
The annual report of Alabama's i
State Mine Inspector, gives an idea of
the vast proportions the ooul mining
industry of that State has assumed. It
shows that lest year 4,240,736 tons
were rained and 9,280 men employed in
this work, as compared to 6,270,042
tons mined and 10,230 men employed
the year previous. This is a falling off
cf 1,024,306 tons iu the total output.
When the fact is considered that fully
three-fourths of the mines were closed
down for about four mouths last
year on account of the greut strike,
the decrease in readily explained. In
fact, it is surprising to the Atlanta
Constitution that the decrease was not
even greater, and it would have been
had not a greater number of mines
been iu operation during the past year
than in 1893. The output of the mines
today, with all labor troubles settled
is larger than ever before. Practioally
every mine is in operation, and tho
demand for Alabama coal was never
before so great as now. And yet the
development of the Alabama coal in
dustry is still in its infunoy.
Care Taken In Selecting Hermits.
A number of officers were talking
in the hall of the Army and Navy club
a day or two ago when tho conversa
tion turned on tho care which is exer
cised in the selection of recruits for tho
Army. From the facts brought, out it
would seem that the United States
service is one of the hardest in tho
world to enter, even as a private. Tho
standard of the enlisted men has been
raised so often that it is uow harder to
become an ordinary soldier, with the
pay of $14 a month, than it is to enter
any branch of the Civil Service. Tho
slightest defect iu tho applicant's phy
sique is enough to debar him, as is
also bad moral character, even with
a f feet physique. The average
monthly enlistments for this year have
been 500, while the average rejections
naie over 3,000. Washington Times.

Thero are stories and 6tories of
mart dogs and horses and wise cats,
but we don't ofteu hear of smart
sheep. Hero is a story about a lamb
born two years ago at Lough Foyle.
It was left motherless, so ono of
the herdsmen nursed and reared the
little orphan. She became very tame
und was much pettod by her master's
oliildrou. Last year sho had grown
into a young sheep, with a lamb of
her own. Oue day some dogs ran
through the pasture grounds and the
frightened flock scattered and fled
through the field, which sloped toward
the seashore. Tho herdsman, Aleck,
drove tho dogs away and col
lected the sheep. An hour or
two afterward the pet sheep
rushed past tho dwelling house, ap
parently in rreat distress. With pite
ous bleutings sho went to tho gate,
where Aleck was silting at .tinner, and,
coming close ho him, seemed to seek
his help. As ho roBu from tho table
she ran ont of the house and straight
through the pasture to the shore. Ho
followed her, and soon saw the cause
of her alarm- Her lamb, terrified by
the dogs, had fled to a little peuiii-nla
among tho rocks, which the incoming
tide had transferred in'.o an ilaud.
Of course, it could not. cross the
strait, aud the mother could not
savo it, therefore sho applied to the
power and sympathy of her human
friend. Her trust in Ins help wus not
disappointed, and she and her rescued
lamb were soon reunited. Chicago
