WON HIM A BRIDE. The Rose by 'Which One Young Han's Credit Was Established. Major J. M. Burke told a good story of his experience In helping a friend to "'get the girl of his choice. "He was a good fellow," said he, "but young and without much capital. The girl was a beauty and loved the boy, but the father (the same old irate father) j objected and demanded that the boy show that he was capable 1 of supporting a wife. This was in St. Louis about ten years ago, and the boy came to me with his troubles. " 'Never mind,' said I. 'I'll fix it up all right By the way, how much will : you take for your right leg?* "He looked at me as though I were crazy, but made "ho answer. " 'I'll give you $10,000 for it,' I said. "Will you take it? . . • ".'No, I won't,' he said. ' 'What do you take me for?" - "Well, I knew the girl's father; he was a and I called to see him. .

The Height of Storms. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
The Height of Storms. Professor F. H. Bigelow furnishes The American Journal of Science with some of the results of the International cloud work for the United States. The penetration of ordinary cyclones into the higher regions of the atmosphere is slight. They are only two or three miles deep.' Hurricanes are five or six miles deep. The antlcyclonic and cyclonic areas are hardly to be considered as centers of motion except in the very lowest strata, since currents of air blow directly over them from west to east, even in the cumulus region of the Rocky mountain districts. The ordinary circulation theory does not hold good. . In each stratum from the surface to the cirrus level about as much air moves north as south, for there are enprmous counter currents passing by each other at the same level and not over one another at different elevations. This puts a new aspect upon the entire problem of the general circulation.—Nature.
Two Answers. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
Two Answers. I Not long ago a Boston clergyman received an evening call from an elderly man and woman who expressed a wish to be joined in the bonds of matrimony then and there. "Have you ever been married before?" asked the clergyman of the man, an honest eyed, weather beaten person of seafaring aspect "Never, and never wanted to be before," was the prompt reply. "And have you ever been married before?" the question came to the woman. "No, sir," she .replied with equal promptness, and with a touch of humor that appealed to the clergyman at once she added, "I never bad a chance!" The marriage ceremony was speedily performed, and the clergyman refused tovtake any fee, telling the bride with a twinkle in his eye that It bad been a privilege to officiate which he would have been sorry to miss. — Youth's Companion.
Odd Albanian Customs. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
Odd Albanian Customs. An Albanian woman expects to be beaten if she misbehaves, this being the prerogative of an Albanian husband. He must be careful, however, not to draw blood during tbe castigatlon, or the wife can complain to the authorities, who will fine the husband and give his property to his wife. When an Albanian marries, he is bound to provide his wife with food, clothes and a home ln keeping with his station and means and cannot require ber to earn money for herself or him by her labor. . Divorce is quite common. Excessive corpulence on the part of the husband Is considered quite sufficient excuse for the •wife to divorce him.

"I'd probably be discharged, mobbed and have all sorts of things happen to me if I said this over in the big town, but I can name you at least four American cities the men of which are better dressed year in and year out than the men of New York," said a man who travels for a New York merchant tailor's supply house and whose territory is the whole continent I "I'll name them in tbe order of their standing as communities inhabited by the best dressed men: Denver, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington. How do I figure it? Just according to the rule of sight, that's all. I don't profess to know much about Egyptology, but I do know a well dressed man when I see him. "Mind, I don't say that all of the men of those four cities are better dressed than all of the men of New York, but I do maintain...
A Sfnfnrnl Bridge In Arizona. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
A Sfnf nrnl Bridge In Arizona. Natural bridge, on Pine creek. In the northern part of Glla county, is one of the greatest natural curiosities in the United States, equaling if not sur-' passing the Natural bridge of Virginia. It spans the creek at a height of about 200 feet, and the walls of the canyon rise above it on either side 700 or 800 feet and on one side form a perpendicular precipice. The bridge is of lime formation, and the Inside of the great arch, which is some 250 feet across, is worn by the water as smooth as though chiseled by the skillful hand of a stonemason. The arch on top Is nearly, If not quite, 400 feet in width, 1,000 feet in length across tbe canyon and at the thinnest part only six feet through. About the center of the archIs a hole large enough to admit the body of a man and through which one can look down Into the crystal pool of water 200 feet below.— Globe (A. T.) Silver Belt

MINING CAMP TRICKS. One Instance Where v. Scheme Work- Ed the Wrong Way. "There 1r a great deal that is out of tbe ordinary, ln mining," said Samuel Mott.of Boise City, Ida., "although I think from personal experience it is probably more so in the relation than In the actual happening. In every mining camp I have known there have always been charges that those n-orking a vein had gone through into the next claim ln ttking out the ore, and consequently ' were taking out what wasn't theirs. These claims it was always difficult to substantiate, for the reason that the offender, of sourse, would not allow the offended to enter his workings, and without a surrey it would be Impossible to make out a case. Every subterfuge and excuse possible was resorted to to get Into a luspected mine. "I. remember one case in an apex of a vein suit where the workings had been temporarily shut down and a man called 'Johnny Come Lately,' heavily armed, was on guard. Tbe other side had tried again and agai...
WOULDN'T INTRODUCE HIM [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
WOULDN'T INTRODUCE HIM- The Young Woman Rather Thought She Needed the Introduction. A young man with a beetling brow and a nice new neaktle entered a law office in one of the big down town office buildings and inquired for a member of the firm, a Mr. Younger, whose name he pronounced with strict regard for the rules of orthoepy. • "Is Mr. Young-er In?" he asked of the young woman stenographer, with whom he seemed to be acquainted. "You mean Mr. ■ Youn-ger?" she replied, pronouncing the "g" hard. "Can it be he pronounces' it that way?" asked the caller, feigning surprise. "Of course it's his privilege to pronounce it as be chooses; there's no set rule for pronouncing names. But you know Y-o-u-n-g-e-r doesn't spell Youn-ger, but Young-er." "No, I didn't know it," she answered as one who doesn't care. "But here he comes now. That's him going into his private office.""Excuse me, but that's not him." "No? Pray, who is it then?" "It's he."

Mint Hark Collections. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
Mint Hark Collections. The mint mark collection is the latest thing in the line of numismatics. It is the fad of the specialist and has little attraction for the amateur. The object Is to secure complete sets of perfect specimens of all the coins Issued from the different mints. A great many people are scarcely aware that there Is any way to distinguish the coins Issued from the different mints. They may not have noticed the small "S" or "CC" beneath the eagle or under the wreath, and showing that the piece was coined at San Francisco or Carson City, or If it bears an "O" at New Orleans. And they may or may not know that If It has no mint mark it comes from the "mother mint" at Philadelphia. But the mint mark collector will see these little letters In an Instant and is very apt to know just how . many " dimes, quarters, dollars or half dollars were turned out at any of the mints during any year since 1704.— Minneapolis Journal.
A Cat's Long Jump. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 13 April 1900
A Cat's Long Jump. How far can a cat jump without hurting itself was partly exemplified in Brooklyn the other night A pretty white cat ran up a tree to get away from a dog and at last crawled out on a small branch at least CO feet above the ground. The branch was not much more than a twig, and the cat could not turn around. She sat up there on the swaying limb and meowed. At last the twig broke, and down came the cat She alighted on the ground on her feet, looked around for a moment and then bounded away; which shows that a GO foot drop does not hurt a Brooklyn cat, whatever it might do to cats of other places.— Pittsburg Dispatch.
