THE hicago Tribune of the 29th ult., publishes a letter, from Custer City, in which the writer says gold abounded' in the Black Hills, but not around that city. On Kapid Creek, miners were making about six dollars a day, and would do better when the frost was out of the ground. There was plenty of gold to pay anyone that lias means to build sluices, but pan work would not prove profitable. Food was plenty and cheap. A young man named James JlcCune, who re tumed to Quincy, 111., on the 29tli ult., tells another story. He says many miners, including himself, had become convinced that gold had not been discovered in pay ing quantities, or, if it had been, that the danger from the Indians was too great to tempt any of them to go where it was to be found. It was not often that anyone was found who had been lucky enough to pick »p a nugget of any value. He says food was scarce and high. A large num ber of those who had rushed to the Hills lived entirely upon game, which was for tunately plenty. FOCRTKEN prisoners escaped from the Chicago jail on the morning of the 80th ult. It seems one of the prisoners over powered the watchman, and, with the aid of another prisoner, bound and gagged him, secured the keys to the cells, and liberated those who escaped.

In the A TIE frontier of China, and thence it is no longer an exclusively Russian, but an in ternational undertaking. The first section from Nijnii Novgorod to Tomsk runs on perfectly level land^the so-called steppes), similar to our prairies. In the second section from Tomsk to Lake Baikal the country is rolling and interspersed with rivers and streams but thc greatest height is only 3,500 feet, and largest rivers are but very moderate width and depth. The only serious difficulties, as we have said, lie at the Chinese frontier, and they are inferior to those overcome in the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada by the American engineers. Russia has raised in fifteen years more than $1,000,000,000 with which to construct 15,000 miles of railroad, and can easily find $300,000,000 or $400,000,000 to construct a line of such value to all thc civilized world.—Scientific American. Money-Getting as an Object of Lire. THE recent sudden death of A. T. Stewart, one of New York's merchant princes, right on the eve of a contemplated civic pageant, and after a business career which tor brilliancy of success and profit able results has rarely been surpassed, in evitably leads one to stop and muse awhile upon thc enduring moral value of such a lite.

At a conference of thc geographers, recently held, Col. Bsgdanowitz explained some of the de tails of tho road, which it is expected will overcome one of the greatest obstacles to the extension of civilization—namely, the separation of a large part of Asia from Europe by vast deserts, in which no means of transit but a railroad could be of any use. A railroad alone can de vclope the resources through which it would pass and as the mineral wealth of Siberia and the Ural Mountains is well known, the exploration and mining of their regions would be encouraged and their resources developed.

It can safely be afllrmed that thc judgment of mankind has long ago settled itself upon thc basis of not long remembering or highly applauding the career of any one who makes his life-object the acquisition of mere material gain. Such a lite, in its best aspects, is nothing more than a su premely selfish life. Self-aggrandizement is its highest aim and end. The moral and intellectual welfare succumbs to the interests and necessities of gain and greed. All thc higher and nobler ele ments of manhood arc sacrificed beiorc the altar ottfce golden god.

There is so much weight and power of character, PO much ability, so much moral worth, liter acy subtracted from the sum total of the world's capital stock in higher good, and the vacuum created by such a loss is tilled with resounding crics of sinccre lamenta tion and grief. But let a man of mere physical wealth die, and about thc only source of public anxiety is in respect to the disposition of his property. The man himself is passed by and speedily forgot ten when once underground, and whatever interest attaches to his life-work has refer encc to the amount in dollars and cents which it had gathered together. No man, therefore, can devote himself exclusively to the acquisition and hoard ing of property, without sinking himself, by so doing, in thc estimation of God Valuable as money is, much as the world needs it, it instinctively declares by its judgments upon those who give them selves up, soul and body, to its accumula tion, that there is something more valua ble, something more needed, while higher than human authority hath con firmed this judgment by declaring that a man's life consistetli uot in the abun dance of the things which he possesseth." Mr Stewart's life, rich and fruitful as it was in heroic perseverance, in concen tration of energy, in wise adaptation of means to ends, yet in its lonely and deso late domestic isolation, its supreme self ishness, its practical forgctfulness of all higher good, can hardly be called a true aud complete success. It was successful in one respcct, and remarkably so, but in the rounded circle of character there are entirely wanting in his career the better possibilities of human life.—Chicago Jour nal. —A Massachusetts country newspaper tells the following amusing incident of a Boston toper: Going into a bar-room he called for something to drink, but was told that no liquor was sold, but that lie might have a glass if he would buy a cracker, the price of which was twelve cents.

This was accordingly done, and a strong draught taken, when, HS he was about de parting, thc landlord, handing him a box of crackers, asked if he didn't want one Well, rfo, I guess not," said the custom er "you sell 'em too dear.

There must be some fatal defect in a life whicli leaves so slight an impress upon the public mind. In estimating thc value of such a life work, there are two extremes of thought to be avoided. First, such a life must not be under estimated, must not be passed over as entirely insignificant or worthless, because it contains, after all possible discounting, some really valuable ele ments and features. Such a life iS in finitely superior to that of the lazy vagabond or the idle lounger su perior to that of the fashion able drone or scheming speculator. Mr. Stew art began his career in business as a poor, humble boy he employed none other tlniu honorable and legitimate methods he never failed or cheated his creditors out of a sin gle dollar.

Nevertheless, I have a vivid recollec tion of Aunt Sabina's kindness while we were there." i)ear me, Fred," drawled Lucilla, don't be sentimental I wish the old thing would stay home.

Grcers,' everyone, except Fred," she would say, congratulating hcr self that the plebeian blond of Gorham pere" was not transmitted in the features of her elder son, Willer, or any of the three girls. That Greer pride meant intense selfish •ss, that Greer beauty was of a cold, hard type, that Greer disposition was tyrannical and narrow-mindi d, did not trouble Mrs. Gorham. That the son, who was all Gorham," was proud to the core with the pride that knows no false shame —that lie was noble in disposition, hand some in a frank, manly type, generous and self-sacrilieing—she could not appre ciate. His hands and feet were not so small as darling Wilbei's, he had no fashionable affectations, and no "Greer" look. So his mother thought him rough and coarse, antl Ilis sisters declared that he had no style at all. But outside tlie home, where a great show of wealth was made by many private economics, Fred was more appreciated. When he became a man, and knew that his father's estate, though sufficient to give every comfort, was uot large enough for tlie extravagance his mother indulged in, he fitted himself for business and took a position in a counting-house, thus be coming self-supporting, though his moth er declared thai no Greer had ever been in trade. That the money she lived on was made in boiling, the fashionable lady ignored entirely. Darling Wilber had studied law, but his first client had not yet appeared, and Mrs. Gorham supported him, trusting his fascinations would touch the heart of some moneyed belle. Miss Caldwell was the present hope. She was her own mistress, an orphan-heiress, and very handsome. That she was cold and proud in manner was only an additional charm to Mrs. Gorham and Lucilla, Ar abella and Corinne were enthusiastic iu their admiration of Cornelia Caldwell's queenly manner." Nobody suspected that Fred, blunt, straightforward Fred, hid one secret in his heart, confessed to no living being. And that secret was a love, pure and true, for Cornelia Caldwell—a love that would shut itself closely away troci any sus picion of fortune-hunting that only drooped and mourned thinking of the heiress. By four o'clock Fred was at the station waiting for Aunt Sabina. What a little, old-fashioned figure she was, iu her quaint bhick bonnet, and large-figure shawl. But Fred knew her kindly old face at once, though he had not seen it bince he was twelve years old. You are aunt," he said, going quickly to meet her. She looked at the handsome face, and caught a quick, gasping breath. You must be one of John's boys," she said. How like you arc to your fa ther." "I am Fied," he^answered. "Dear heart! How you've grown! Is your ma here?" She is waiting for you at home." The good old countrywoman had never had thc least doubt of a warm welcome at her brother's house, and Fred certainly confirmed her expectations. He found tlie old black leather trunk, the bag, the great bulging cotton umbrella, and put them all in the carriage, without one smile of ridicule. lie made his aunt go to the restaurant and refresh herself be fore starting oa the long drive home.

It was not often the young man's indignation found voice, though it grew hot over many shameful acts of hard selfishness in the house of his mother, but he said some words on that day that called a blush to thecheeks of the worldly woman. It was not a very busy season, and finding Sabina was likely to have a sorry time, if left to thc other members ol the family, Fred asked for a holiday, and ap pointed himself thc old lady's escort. He was foo proud to care for the fact that the 10. yirj quaint little figure on his arm attracted 51 a many an amused glance, but gravely stood by while a new dress for Dolly, the dairy-maid, and a city neck-tie for Bob, the plow-man, were purchased. Once or twice, meeting some of his gen tleman friends, they had thought the queer old party is some rich relation, Gor ham is so very attentive," and had de lighted Sabina by their deferential atten tion. Once—Fred bad not counted on that— in a picture gallery, Cornelia Caldwell sauntered in alone. She had heard of Sabina, through the disgusted comments of Lucilla, and knew she had no property but a miserable farm," but she greeted Fred with a smile far more cordial than she gave her admirers. A little lump came iu Fred's throat. Then he gravely introduced the stately beauty in her rust ling silk to the little, old-fashioned figure on bin arm. ..JtW 1lT! Gorham, Miss Cald- They admired the pn-iu and the yotag lady was chatty. Then she smiled again, made Sabina comfortable in tlie carriage, and drove off, leaving Fred forty times deeper in love than ever, aa she intended he should be. "He is a very prince of men," she thought, "and I will give liim one day's rest. Bless the dear old soul, she has such blue eyes as my dear old grand mother." Then she won Sabina's confidence, and found she was worrying about tlie pur chase of certaiu household matters that would not go in the black leather trunk, and that she did not like to worry Fred about it. She drove to the places where the best goods could be had, keeping guard over tlie slender purse against all imposition, till the last towel was satisfactorily cho sen and directed. Then she drove her home, and brought her to the room where "grandmother" was queen, knowing the stately old lady would make the country woman welcome. In the evening that followed, Fred's heart was touched and warmed, til), scarce ly conscious of his own words, he told his long cherished secret, and knew that he had won love for love. Aunt SaDina stayed two weeks, and then went home, to the Immense relief of the Gorhams, and carrying no regret at leav ing any but Fred and Cornelia. It was not even suspected that Cornelia spent four weeks in the height of the summer season, listening to thc praises of Fred at Sabina's farm-house and Fred did not know it until lie came, too, after she wtis gono, and had his share of listen ing to loving commendations of one he loved He wore the necktie and made himself so much at home, that Sabina wept some of the bitterest tears of her life when he left. To have you both, and lose you!" she sobbed. Next time we will come together," Fred whispered, and so consoled her. But, alas! the next time Fred came was to superintend the funeral of the gentle old lady and though Cornelia came, too, his happy wife, there was no welcome in the pale lips, or the blue eyes closed forever. But the will the old lady left gave all her worldly possessions to her dear nephew, Frederic Gorham''—the farm •and farm-house. It was apparently no very great legacy, aud Cornelia smiled at many of the old fashioned treasures she touched, all with the tender reverence death leaves. Ten years ago Sabina was laid to rest in her narrow coffin, and there is a busy, flourishing town around the site of the old farm. Mr. Frederic Gorham lives there now, and handles large sums of money—the rents of stately buildings. "Made his money, sir,by speculation," you will be told, if you inquire as to his source of income.

But a chill fell upon the kindly old heart when home was reached at last, and four fashionably-dressed ladies gave her a strictly courteous greeting. But for thc warm clasp of Fred's hand, I think she woulu have returned to the station in the same carriage she came, so wounded «ad sore she felt.

He was poor, and, like most of thc poor boys of that his chief ambition was to own a donkey and hire him out to the travelers to go to the pyramids and other places of interest in the neighborhood of Cairo. As it was, he was only the driver of another man's donkey that is, when the animal was mounted by the traveler he ran be hind, poking the quadruped with a sharp stick to keep him in a brisk trot. 8 3.

He drove Aunt Sabina to the park. He took her to see all the sights. THE cuflous fact has recently been pointed out by Dr. B. W. Richardson that the changes of the seasons have a potent physical influence upon the body. Some years ago, in a convict establishment in England, a number of men were confined amid surroundings (of clothing, room, food, etc..) practically the same for each individual. The medical superintendent of the Jail undertook investigations, ex tended over some nine years, and during which over4,000 individuals were weighed. It was found that during the months of winter the b»dy wastes, the loss of weight varying in increasing ratio: that during summer the body gains, the giin varying in an increasing ratio: aud that the changes from gain to loss and from loss to gain arc abrupt, and take place, the first at the beginning of September, and thc second at the beginning of Ap.ril.

Her Cake Was Ail Dongh. FIFTY years old if a day, and her name was Eliza Fox. She lives on National avenue, and she made a trip to the eastern portion of the city to get a recipe for mak ing cake. She got the recipe, got some beer, and got in the station, and she wasn't half as anxious about her case as some of the audience. She slowly fol lowed Bijali out, musing: One day, while Yacob was standing in front of Shepherd's Hotel in Cairo, wish ing he had a donkey of his own, an En glish traveler on the veranda beckoned to him and asked him why he looked so wistful, and Yacob answered that he was unhappy because he had no donkey. 6 9.

Then he said to Yacob: Would you be happy if you owned thought that donkey, my lad Oh, master, I would be happy with any donkey!" said Yacob. "Then," said the Englishman, "he is yours—I make him a present to you." When he said this, the other travelers gathered around, with smiles on their faces, for it appeared that the Englishman was a man much given to making fun. He told Yacob to get on the donkey and ride liim up and down in front of the ho tel a few times to show his gait. Yacob got astride of him, and found that he was stiff in thc legs anil moved slowly, not withstanding the sharp pokes he gave him with his stick. I shall give the donkey a name that will draw custom for you," said the En glishman, as thc lad rode up to the veranda. Yacob was much pleased that his bene factor should give the donkey a name, for he had seen some of his companions who hired their donkeys more easily than others, on account of fortuuate names given to them by travelers. I shall be very much glad to call him what my name shall l.e I.inrhtP'JlG:,- elers laughed. Yacob did not know what Lightning meant, and he continued tocallhisdonkey by that name after the Englishman went away. He did not have much difficulty iu hiring his donkey but when the trav elers started on their journey, they told Y'acob he was a humbug, and that he had uiposed on them with his animal. So that they only kept Lightning for a few minutes, and the same people never hired him twice. One day, as lie led his old donkey to ward thc hotel veranda, after being called little humbug by an angry traveler, who refused to pay him for hire of half an hour, he was spoken to by a fat man in a long blaek coat, v ho told him he ought to call hi? donkey Slow-coach. After that, Y'acob callcd him Slow coach, not knowing any more about that name than he did about Lightning. But this change of name, instead of mending any condition, You were never here before?"

Thereupon Y'acob bemoaned his bad luck in the bear ing of an American sitting on a tilted chair on the veranda. Y'acob," said the American, your donkey shall be hired as much as any other, but hereafter liis name must be thc Prince of Wales." The American had a certificate drawn up and sworn to before the American Con sul in Cairo, to show that thc Prince of Wales bad, without any doubt, mounted Y'aeob's donkey and when the lad wanted to hire the animal to any man, woman or child from England, all he had to do was to show this certificate, and they straight way engaged him, notwithstanding liis moping gait and stiff legs. They en gaged him for whole days, fondled him, and begged Y'acob not to poke him up too Bharp from behind. They fed him with whatever he would cat, and the only draw back to the donkey's pleasant life was that his tail was plucked a good deal for mementos. Y'acob said,and says still,that the luck iest day of his life was wheu he was spoken to by the American gentleman on a tilted chair.—Albert IVuxtes, in St. Nich olas for May. What Is That to Me?" A DOG once set out to go through the world, and see all that was to be seen. He had been spoiled in his young days so that he did not care for the pains of others, •O long as he was safe and well hi*iself. One day, as he went through a field, he heard a sad cry, and, looking round, saw a shecD in a stream. Help me, oh, help! or I shall be drowned," she cried. The dog could have pulled her out, for he was strong, and could swim well. But to her cry he said, "What is that to me? and went on. The sheep was not drowned for the stream took her down to a place where the bank was low, and she could get out but she owed the dog no thanks for that. He went on till he thought he must find some food, and just then he caught sight of a cat in the yard of a house near by. The eat had a pan of milk, which she seemed to like for the purred as she lapped it. §he Toledo §hronich.

And lie drank it all up, anil went on, well pleased. Day after day, he was the same. He would not help a poor cow that had got shut out of her field, though he knew of a gap in thc hedge by which shecould have got back. He would not take the pains to point out the way to the old oak in the wood, when a young bird who had strayed too far from lier nest asked him. To each anil all be would say, What is that to me? I don't care." At last he came to a great wood. He was tired, and soon went to sleep. In his sleep he dreamed, that, all at once, a great wolf came out of the wood, and seized hold of him. "Save me! save me!" he cried. Why Bliould I save you?" said the wolf, with a fierce gleam in his eye. "Is there one who would say a good Word fov you?" At this speech, the sheep who had oncc asked thc dog to help her came out of tho wood. I have a word to say," she said but it is not a good word. This dog would not help me when I was in trouble. If you tell me you must kill him, I say, as he once said: What is that to me?' "Oh!" groaned the poor dog. "Is there no one who will say a kind word?" Then came thc cat. I do not care if you kill him," said she: "what is that to me? lie did uot care for me in my want." The cow came next. l)o as you like," said she: "If he comes to grief what is that to me There was never any pity in his heart for those be saw suffer." And then came a whole crowd of beasts and birds and they stood around and cried, with one voice: "Do as you will with him. Kill him, it you like. "What is that to us?" Thc dog's fear in his dream was so great that he woke. How great was his joy to find that no wolf was near!

WB believe that the French army, in spite of what has been written in this country on thc subject, is making great, progress in every way. Work is being done silently and well. We have just seen the letter of an accomplished French officer, stating that the work, un'il a few days ago, was really too hard, and dwell ing on the extra amount of duty necessi tated by the training of reservists. We see that in Paris the cavalry regiments are being drilled to take the rail at night-time, and, by "thc lantern dimly burning," a squadron rides up to a station, dismounts, piles arms, unsaddles, in stalls its charges in the railway boxes, packs up hay and corn, and takes its place in the carriages.
