A minute later found her by the star Are you quite sure? boarders chair. Perhaps there is some mistake. Your servant might have overlooked them, May he just give one more look? Divided between surprise at her interference and her pertinacity, the baronet, turning, rang the bell near him and directed his servant to look once more. The man obeyed. He returned, per plexity on his face, with the pill box and two innocent-lookin- g pills therein. There, I told you so! said the little lady, with a cip of her small white hands. The star boarders first sensation was joy. Madam, he said, with a studied bow, you have the witchery of your sex. But his brow clouded. Glancing towards his Your care' iessness is unpardonable.

He bowed solemnly. , Then I will tell you something. My room joins yours; they are much alike, I, too, take pills before dinner, and I went by mistake into your room and took two pills. Afterwards I slipped up and placed two of mine In your box. I feared to tell you lest they should not suit you; but you see they have acted admirably. Pray, say you forgive man-servan- t? me. The baronets politeness was taxed, Maaam, he said, the effects have been too happy for resentment Also it follows my servant Is absolved from blame. There was a deeper tint in the ladys cheek, tut 'her eyes were laughing. Could you keep another secret? He laid his hand on his heart Faithfully.

But at that moment the baronet appeared, walking slowly, a heavy cloud on his brow. He took his seat by the side of Miss Brown, the lady of the establishment, presiding at the head of the table. He stooped and whispered to her in portentious tones. Can eat no dinner! she answered aloud in alarmed accents. Nothing, nothing, said the star boarder, unless, with a melancholy wave of his hand, a spoonful, just a spoonful of the soup. No more, not a drop more, as in obedience to his request the soup ladle descended to his I have not missed taking them plate. for 15 years, and I dare not attempt anything like a full meal without their aid.

Here Immense bodies of high grade sulphide ore have been uncovered and blocked out. The ore runs high in copper as well as silver, lead and gold, and after all expenses have been paid, including a seventeen-mil- e wagon haul down a mountain road, nets the company fully $50 per ton. That the mine Is a great one. and will develop Into a leviathan is proven by the fact that on the 300 level the ore bodies are stronger and richer than any others In the mine, and give promise of going to great mine it rivdepths.

GOT WILD WELCOME One Would Imagine, Proceedings, Rather Trying to the Nerves of a Party of Western Tourists. A traveler In New Zealand tells of a native welcome. His party drew near to the central home of the tribe As we rested beneath of Maoris: the parapets, we were startled by a horrible yell and round the corner of the stockade appeared a ferocious befeath-erefigure, tattooed, and naked, except for a very brief waist fringe of dangling palm fiber. His eyes rolled till the whites only were seen, then he thrust out a long and snaky tongue and grimaced fearfully. Shaking a wooden spear in his hand, he swiftly cast it at us, then turned and rushed toward the Just as the spearsman village. turned one of our young men, who had rapidly divesjted himself of all but his waist shdwl, darted out in pursuit and we followed at a more dignified pace. The entrance to the city was barred by a body of armed men, crouching still as death, on one knee, each holding a gun, butt on the ground, barrel sloping toward us. We advanced until we were within twenty paces of the warriors. Then all at once, at a ild cry from a chief on the right, they Jumped to their feet, leaped high in the air, with their feet doubled under them like deer, and with one voice Uteri ally barked out a thundering chorus. This way and that our martial hosts bounded, brandishing their loaded rifles in time to the chant Halting thud, abruptly, with an they fired a volley of ball cartridge over our heads. Another volley reverberated from hill to hill and the bullets whistled over us. Then the brown warriors fell back and a gayly dressed band d earth-shakin- g of women, with green leaves wreathed about their brows, and waving shawls and leafy boughs, advanced with a gliding semidance and chanted their ancient welcome song. When the womens song ceased, out to the front danced six girls a group of vividly barbaric, yet not inharmonious, color appareled In loose crimson roundabouts and short gowns of flowered print, their georgeously brows bound about with red handkerchiefs, which held in place the black and white plumes of the rare huia bird and the iridescent feathers of the long-tailecuckoo, their cheeks dabbed with red ocher paint, greenstone pendants and sharks teeth hanging from their ears. These barefooted nymphs, hands on hips and heads thrown back, glided into the measure of a dance, to the music of a shrill monody tattooed chanted by a white-haireold lady. Then all at once the chant ended on an unexpected high note and the performers stopped, breathless and glowing all over with theii Broad flax d emotions. mats were spread out for us on th green and after speeches of greeting we were regaled with pork, preserved birds, wild honey and potatoes, in quantity sufficient to have satisfied d self-evolve- a starving Russian garrison. Big Mines with Small Names. Many of the great mines of the West were devoloped by men who had little capital. ( Ths comparatively which has yielded about Aspen, gave its fortunate lessee days. He had $467,000 in forty-fiv- e spent only $8,000 in opening It The Hecla, of Burke, Idaho, was opened by six dairymen, who a few weeks ago refused $2,670,000 for it. Thomas Kearns, general man of the Silver King, which has ager paid $10,505,000 in dividends, says that it cost $58,000 to put the property on a paying basis. He and his partners had nothing but their wages and savings from them when they began to develop the mine. Leslies Weekly. 0, Adding Insult to Injury. The phrase adding Insult to injury originated from a fable by Phaedus, a Roman author, who lived in the reign of Augustus Caesar, and whose writings were first introduced in modern literature in 1596, at Rheims, France. The fable is called The Bald Man and the Fly, and is A fly bit the bare pate as follows; of a bald man, who endeavoring to crush it, gave himself a heavy blow You Then said the fly, jeeringly: wanted to avenge the sting of a tiny insect with death. What will you do to yourself, who have added insult to injury? . Cotton Long Known. The manufacture of cotton in India dates back to its Earliest history There are allusions to it connected with India in the Bible. In old Sans crit records mention Is made of its being used in India nearly 3,000 years ago. At the time of Alexanders invasion of India the dress of the Hindoos was described as consisting large ly of calicos, pure white or having figures. Among the imports Into Europe during the first century, enumerated from India are described as of superior quality. Pheasant Hatched Chickens. While traveling through the woods quite recently Isaac Rose, a pioneer of Jackson township, saw a pheasant brood a flock of little chicks.
