Good Hope— Jackson. Last Sunday, just after midnight, an attempt was to have been made to jump the Good Hope mine.

O'ER THE HILLS, FAR AWAY Trip to the County Seat of Inyo. A BEAUTIFUL VALLEY-SOME GRAND SCENERY Country That Is of California but Not Cahfornian— Teachers' Institute. ELIZABETH SARGENT-WILSON The old saying of "Around Robin Hood's Barn" becomes literal in mak ing a trip from here to Inyo county. It is not far, "Just over the moun tains" we say, as we look at Amador and Mono counties on the map, but when one undertakes the journey all is changed. Those mountains that lie ■ between make miles of inches and stretch hours into days. The- Sierra! The glory of California! They shelter her from blizzard, shut out the desert, and pen in the sunshine that- decks her form with the golden garb of beauty and wealth. As the Alps cradled the poets and artists of old, so our Sierra are destined to shelter the bards and painters of the future.

MEN WITH THE MOST MONEY Duke of Westminster's In come $50 a Minute. KRUPP HAS IHE LARGEST PRIVATE BUSINESS The Vanderbilts, Goulds, Astors and John P. Rockefeller Lead in America. The Rothschilds are said to bo the richest family in the world. They are the money lenders of tho universe, and among their customers are kings and governments. Tho Paris branch of the banking firm is said to keep. a cap ital of $300,000,000 at its command and hardly a war takes place in the Eastern Hemisphere for which funds are not furnished by this family. It is hardly credible, but true nevertheless, that five generations back the ancestor of the Rothchilds was selling old clothes in the Jewish quartor of Frankfort-on the-Main, then, as now, the filthiest quarter' of that city. When Ansel m Rothschild, the founder of the family fortune, died leaving $5,000,000 to his five sons, he made them promise to keep the fortune in the family and to carry on the business together. They kept their promise and it i...

Ho could not be kept from the firing line. Wherever the Mauser slugs from Spanish rifles zipped little clouds of dust from the ground, or whipped and twitted as they cut the air and tall grasses, there "Old Scrap py" could be found. He was told by Chaffee, Ludlow, Breckenridge and ethers that he had no right to expose himself to the fire of the enemy. : He was told that a General in command of a division, which had a front of several miles, ought to be in the rear, out of immediate danger, where he could be found by aids and orderlies. But words of caution were lost on General Law ton. When, during the fight at El Caney, General Shat...

THEY ARE AFRAID OF WAR When Francis Joseph- of Austria Djes, AND HE IS GETTING TO BE PRETTY OLD Matrimonial Alliances Make Him the Factor in European Politics. It is not a grateful task to speculate upon the death of a living man. But when that man has all but reached the ago of threescore and ton and is be sides burdened with the weight of tho most griovous sorrows that can come to man, when he is a sovereign who has occupied tho throne for more than half a century, and when his personal influence has long been the one con serving and preserving factor in his realm, without which tho realm would be in imminent peril of dissolution— in such circumstances it may be deemed pardonable, and at any rate .it seems inevitable, that men should begin to reckon upon the length of his remain ing reign and upon what will happen when for him tho end shall come.
