The directors of the Philadelphia,
Wilmington and Baliimoro Railroad
yesterday declared a semi annual Oasil
dividend of 3 per cent, payable ou
July 2, to stockholders of record ou
Slay 29. This is a reduction of per
cent, from the Slay dividend of lb'J.i,
which was 3J per cent.
The exports of iron and steol from
Great Britain for the four months to
April 30 show a decided docrease. Thi-t
year the total amount was 772,325
tons, valued at $3,773,001, while iu the
corresponding period of last year it was
801, 35 tous, valued at $5,881,848; the
diminution In quantity b)ing 10 i per
cent., and in value 10.1 per cent. Tnen
has been a very large loss this year In
the exports of railroad material to the
Australian colonies, and a still larger
one in tho shipments of all olnsaes of
iron and steel to India, so that the
manufacturers are realizing the effect
oi the silver policy in the latter couutry.
In spite of tins decrease iu exports
there has been no falling off in produc
tion so far this year, but there is much
cein plaint of low prices and increasing
stocks on hand. The imports of iron
ore hnvo increased a little, having been
1.523,884 tons so far this year, or more
ly 3 5 per cent, than in thccorreipond
ing period of 1803.
President Harris, of the Reading
company, after a careful inspection of
that company's flooded collieries, has
onuounced that not only was the ac
tual ('Htm;? to tho various properties
inconsiderable, but that before the
close of tho present week all but thro s
of the fifty-two collieries will have
been reclaimed. An extra fores of
men hus been put to work pumping
out the water from the mine, and
their work has been so effective that
tl.irty collieries were reported as being
on full time yesterday. The compmy's
Iosh, throngh inability to fill orders,
will be quite heavy. Shipments last
week aggregated only 138,580 tons,
ngainst 257.886 tons the correspond in a
MUtok last year, a decrease of 121,820
tons, making the docreaso for the year
Improvement In the authracite
trade continues steadily, and will be
promoted by the new circular, with
its no more than reasonable increase.
If we may believe the Stockholder,
there is no longer any doubt that a
large number of consntners who have
heretofore used soft coal exclusively
are now using anthracite. The Lahigh
Valley has received several orders from
soft coal consumers this week
one order alone aggregating
2,000 tons and the Reading
has been equally fortunate. The
Reading, however, could only
accept orders subject to delay in de
livery, owing to its mines being flood
ed by last week's storm. At oue time
only twelve of the colleries of the com
pany were in operation, but Itrsnnottfl
efforts were made to "pump thorn out, "
with such success that nil the mines,
with the exaeption of three, have been
reclaimed and are now turning ou:
coal. They, moreover, are working
full timo nnd free handed, and should
tho present demand continue it is prob

A TTomun Who Scolds Ghosts.
Mrs. Roland, connected with very re
sectable people and now old nnd feeble,
has beon for years considered a witch. Ig
norant persons. so consider her. Others
lay she is the living representative of his
dark and awful majesty.
It is said she quarrels as fiercely with tho
ghosts of her mother and sister upon their
frequent visits as she ever quareled with
thstn In the flash.
A little boy teld me that when he built
fires for Mrs. Roland a few years ago she
tojd him to "t a chair, quiek, for Lucy,"
npou one occasion.
When he did so he heard distinctly tho
rustle of a silk dress, aud Mrs. Roland, di
recting her eyes to the apparently vacant
chair, set up such a querulous scolding of
Lucy's ghost as to frighten him nearly to
"Stay iu purgatory," she said, "or else
you'll have all those silk dresses so creased
nnd glazed that they won't do for House
man's rag bag. You only come back to
hear yourself rustle iu silk, you proud
hussy, and sntan can have no revenge be
cause you burned yourself Up here!"
"A great many times," said the child,
"would she thus receive her ghostly visi
tors. Sometimes they would soma to look
over tho family jewels, and then there'd bo
a great f us& bpcause certain of Mrs. It's
relatives roHNd her, and she acquainted
Lucy with the fact. Onco Lucy slapped
tho witch's jaws. The hoy heard tho
sound distinctly and tho red print of a
hand showed plaiuly on tho pallid old
Lucy was actually burned alive in that
ugly old square house. She was burned in
her kitchen fireplace, aud only one shoe,
inside of which was a foot, proved that

The Fox Wan Surprised.
Tho Iluv. J. Murray, in his work on the
creation, relates that on ono occasion an
acquaintance of his was out shooting wild
ducks. On reaching a bend of tho stream
he saw six wild geeso out of range. Ho
crouched down in the hope thaf they
would presently como nearer. While thus
concealed he observed a fox stealing down
to tho bank, on reaching which he re
mained motionless with his eyo fixed on
At length he retired, but presently reap
peared, carrying iu his mouth a very largo
bundle of moss. He entered the water
silently, sank himself and then, keeping
the moss above tho water, himself con
cealed, he floated among the geese. Sud
denly one of them was drawn under the
water, and the fox soon appeared on the
bank with the goose on his hack.
Close to the water's edge ho found a hole,
caused by the uprooting of a tree. This
hole he cleared out and enlarged, placed
tho gooso ut the bottom of it and covered
his prize with leaves aud dry litter, of
which there was abundance close at hand.
Tho fox then took his departure, and the
interested watcher went to the hole and
removed the goose, taking care to restore
things to thoir former appearance.
Then he resolved to observe what fol
lowed. In about half an hour tho fox re
turned in company with another. They
went straight to the place where tho goose
had been burled aud removed tho earth.
No gooso there. They stood looking at
each other for sonic time, and t hen sudden
ly tho second fox attacked the other most
furiously, as if enraged by having a trick
played upon him. Boston Courier.
Generosity Among Street Arabs.
I was a witness on Park row of a pleas
ant act by a street arab.
Three ragged newsboys were trying to
sell the earlier editions of tho afternoon
papers. A man, carrying a largo bunch of
fine looking bananas on his shoulder, passed
close by. The motion of his body loosened
one of the biggest and ripest, and it fell to
the sidewalk. The man kepton, not notic
ing or caring for the loss.
Tho banana lay ou the pavement for
about half a minute unseeu. Then tho
largest of the three ragged urchins spied it,
aud, with a cry oi delight, ho ran over and
picked it up.
It, was natural to suppose that he would
proceed to ent it all himself, but instead of
so doing he called his companions to his
side and exhibited hia find. They eyed it
Without any request, however, from
them for a share In the coveted fruit, the
finder divided the banana into three parts
and gave his fellow newsboys each a part.
The smallest piece he reserved for himself.
It was only a small thing in itself, yet it
showed, I thought, that there was somo
thing noble bidden under the ragged gar
ments of that little urchin. New York
Tito nny nnd the Hit.
A funny answer was received by Judge
McMath to a query put to a littlo six-year-old
boy, whom ho sought to entertain
whilo rhiing In a street car the other even
ing. The judge was on his way home
after a hot day and wore his "stovepipe"
hat on the back of his head. Beside him
sat a middle aged gentleman with his
littlo six-year-old hoy. The father of the
boy nnd the judge carried on a conversa
tion, during which tho hoy frequently
peeped around his father, evidently at
tracted by something.
Tho judge at length tried to divert the
boy from those occasional little stares and
asKed, "And how are you, my littlo boy?"
"Oh, I'm well," was the modest reply.
"Can you tell me your name?" The name
was given. "How old are you?" The boy
slyly turned his eyes toward the judge and
renvarked, "About ns old as that hat of
yours." Cleveland Plnindcaler.
A O,uos:r Norway Custom.
Tho Briton who has been in Norway oi
Denmark, and mixed with the Norwegians
at home, canuot for the life of him sym
pathize with tho Scandinavian custom ot
shaking hands violently with one's fellow
guests at dinner, and uttering the words,
"Thanks for meat," when the meal is
ended. It seems a most futile and ridicu
lous proceeding. Well and good, if the in
terchange of courtesies were confined to
each guest severally nnd his host. But
that every Individual should engngo in a
methodical bout of handshaking with every
one else seems absurd iu the extreme, Yet
our Scandinavian friends do not feel them
selves under nny compulsion to justify t his
long established custom. All tho Year

THE BEST OF TRAMPS,
OLD JOHNNY APPLESEED, WHO
PLANTED MANY ORCHARDS.
Ho Cooked III Meuls In Mis i in Pot Hat
and Went About llarcfootcd, Sowing
Apple Seeds and Tracts tie Was Con
alderate Toward Everything Alive.
One of the quaintest, queerest and most
original characters that ever trod tho
trackless wastes of the western wilderness
was Jonathan Chapman, known as old
Johnny A pplcseed. Pioneer, philosopher,
philanthropist and nomologist was he, tak
ing no thought of himself and living for
others only. Ho would not, could he pro
vent it, sutTer the slightest harm to be
done to the meanest of living creatures.
In tho great western solitudes ho led the
life of the primitive Christian, taking a
thought only of tho hour and letting a
wise Providence lookout for the future.
He thought hunting morally wrong, and
ho would let a mosquito sit on him anil
suck bis blood until the insect was satiated
This odd old man was the pioneer or
chard planter of the west. For over twen
ty years ho wandered over the states of
Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and Missouri, plant
ing apple seeds and selling and giving
away tho seedlings. Many of the great
apple orchards of the west owe t heir origin
to Johnny Appleseed. Old Johnny was
horn in Boston in 1T75. In 1801 he ap
peared in the territory of Ohio with a load
of apple seeds, which he planted in various
places in and about Licking Creek. The
first orchard originated by old Johnny was
on the farm of Isaac Stodden, in what is
now Licking county, O.
"I have often wondered why there was
such n widespread Ignorance of old Johnny
Appleseed in the west," observed a friend
of the writer recently. "Even among hor
ticulturists his name Is scarcely known.
There certainly was no character any more
fully identified with the west than he in
Thus it is with all who have ever heard
anything of t he quaint old man. The won
der is that his name is not a byword and
his history a part of the common school
curriculum of the day.
HIS TIN POT HAT.
The early western pioneers who knew
him but slightly considered old Johnny a
vagabond. From cursory observation it
would appear that their views wero pretty
well founded. A more uncouth individual
it would have been difficult to find. His
garments were a bundle of rags. II is shoes,
when he wore any, could scarcely be held
on his feet by bits of twine, so dilapidated
nnd worn were they. His pinched nnd
grizzled features were covered by a growth
of very shaggy beard. His hair was quite
long and very much faded by constant ex
posure to Wind and weather.
But old Johnny's crowning glory was nn
old tin mush pot that had a long handle.
This battered old culinary utensil he wore
for a hut, When he was tramping through
the western forests the old man always
cooked his meals in the old mush pot. The
cravings of hunger satisfied, he would give
the pot a careful washing, put It on his
head and tramp on. This was his practice
for over two decades. Tho old pot was
bright enough on its inside, but its exterior
wus a sight to behold, so blackened aud
battered was it.
With all his uncouthness of personality,
however, old Johnny Appleseed hud an in
tellect as keen ns the most polished schol
ars of the day. Ills ideas wero far In ad
vance of his time. Those who have re
ceived personal Impressions of the old man
Bay that he was a philosopher whose puri
ty of thought was as clear as a perennial
spring and whose life was us simple us
that of a child.
WHY lilt WAS SO NAMED.
The name Johnny Appleseed was given
him by the early settlers with whom he
came in contact because he nearly always
carried a bag full of apple seeds with him.
These seeds by infinite toil ho gathered
from the ciiler presses among tho Dutch
farmers iu Pennsylvania.
When a sufficient quantity of the seeds
had been gat hered old Johnny would load
the fruit of his labor in a canoe und start
on a voyage dow n the Ohio river into tho
great w ilderness of the west. In Indiana
and Illinois, wherever there was the faint
est suspicion of a. settlement, he went and
planted his apple seeds, Sometimes he.
would select an open place in the forest,
his judgment telling him thut some day
the white man would lie there. The dis
covery of fruit bearing apple trees in the
woods in these states has led many to be
lieve that the apples are indigenous to the
When Indiana and Illinois became well
settled, old Johnny extended his wauder
ings west of the Mississippi river and
planted his apple seeds on Missouri soil.
In the wigwam of the Indian anil the cabin
of the pioneer he was known and always
welcome, lie must have made twenty
such annual trips as the one above de
scribed. When his seedlings became large
enough he gave them to I ho set tiers or sold
them for fond and clothes.
IOMN OK HIS PKGUUARrTin,
One of the most peculiar characteristics
of old Johnny Appleseed was his religion.
He led a simple, moral and harmless life.
Ho was the follower of the new church, a
Swedenhorgian, nnd he never lost nn op
portunity to expound his doctrines. He
carried with him always a little bundle of
tracts. These he distributed among tho
early settlers on the border of civilization.
When he would make his return trips he
would take those tracts up and leave new
ones in their places. His advent in Ohio
In the early days created a sensation. The
simple minded people of the towns and vil
lages knew nothing but the old faith, and
their belief was strong in superstition.
Some thought he was crazy, and there
fore treated him with companion; others
thought he was possessed of n devil and
would not, allow him to enter their houses.
At this time, however, a member of tho
Baptist church of Richland county, O., a
school teacher and the! lu st read man in
the county, Invited the strange pilgrim to
his home. TheOhioan said afterward that
be fountLhls guest to be one of the best
posted and most brilliant minded persons
that ho had ever hail tho pleasure of meet
ing. Those who knew the old man say that
ho was in constant, fear of hurting some in
sect or animal. One night ho built his
camp lire in the woods and prepared to
cook his evening meal. The niosqilltoes
wero very thick about the lire and some of
them flew into it and were scorched. This
so worried old Johnny that ho took his old
mush pot, hat, filled it with water aud
quenched the lire.
It is said that the strange old man to
whom the west is indebted for most of its
great apple orchards died in Allen county,
Intl., near Fort Wayne. A person who
knew him says that his death was a tri
umphant passing into glory. He lav on
the grass with his faco toward tho setting
sun. Hll countenance was wreathed with
smiles of rapture, und as the last beams of
the great luminary died out, of the west the
vital spark left its abode of flesh and passed
iuto the great unknown. Chicago ilirald.
