THE SCTIANTON' TIIIBIJNE FRIDAY HORNING. OCTOBER 12, 18J)4.
THE MAN FROM CALIFORNIA.
HI Nam Hot Mentioned, but the Golden
. West It Proud of Hlin.
"The man who has never goue hunting
and fishing In California in June, with tho
necessary accompaniments and plenty of
time on his hands," said the man from
Corbett's native state, "has made a failure
of life. Ho isn't really in it."
"Did you get that sun kissed nose, that
pooling neck and those tan colored bands
on a hunting and fishing excursion in Call
lorniaf " asked the man who had his feet
on the table.
"There were six In our party," said tho
other, ignoring the interruption. "We eu
tered the mountains just back of Alta
deua. We had burros, guns, provender
and fishing tackle ad libitum. Our first
camp was pitched about 7,000 feet ubove
the sea, near a spring, surrounded by ferns
fifteen feet high and I can knock any man
down that disputes that assertion to the
extent of a single inch. The resinous odors
of balsams and firs"
"See guidebook," murmured the man, in
the slouch hat.
"filled the air, and tho sound of falling
water lulled us to sleep.' The next morn
ing was fogless, and from our perch we
could see plainly Altadeua, Pasadena and
limitless sketches of valley and plain,
with dark green squares of lemon and
orauge orchards. The ocean was plainly
visible and not a speck was to be seen on
its surface. The only thing that loomed
up between usaud Japan was distance"
"And the protective tariff f" suggested
the man with the russet shoc3.
"The next man that interrupts nie,"snid
the speaker, (licking the ashes from the
etid of his half smoked cigar, "will wish he
hadn't. ' I have a worse cigar than this in
my pocket. I shall simply light it."
A deep, dark silence fell upon the group.
"Seven thousand feet above the ravages
of the advertising fiend!" he continued.
"Lydia Pinkham never had been there. On
the rocks and cliffs there was nothing to
remind you of your liver or kidneys. No
liquid glue man with a paint put and
brush had ever seen the place. Down in
the swale of moist gypsum below tho
spring there was a bear track as big as a
saucer, but we stuck to our camp biscuit
and cauned corn and let the boar alone.
"The next night found us in the main
San Gabriel canyon arranging rod and line
to whin thedeeps and shallows of the finest
trout stream in all California, and at 10
o'clock the next day we counted the catch.
Five of us had fished, leaving one to watch
ramp. We had bagged 1M7 trout that
measured all the way from five to fourteen
inches in length. We kept this up for five
days, and all the chowder and things wo
didn't eat the burros did, along with their
everyday diet of thistles, cactus, rubber
blankets and dishcloths. e had one big,
overgrown burro we christened Chicago.
This ravenous animal would swallow every
thing in sight and then gnaw at the tent
"On the ninth day we cllmlied again up,
up, into the regions of pure air and tho
balsam of health, and on the evening of
the tenth day out our camp was pitched
10,800 feet above bilgo water. We could
look out over the Mojave desert, the bound
less domain of the bronze lizard and horned
toad away on out over the trackless void
toward Salt Lake, Denver, home. From
this eyrie our shooters went forth to shoot,
down the mountain sides, into the echoing
canyons with no bottoms, along the crests
and crags, in and out of caves and"
"What did you shoot?"
"It makes no difference what we shot,
The California game laws are against kill
ing deer at this season. So we didn't kill
any deer. At least we didn't call them
deer. We called them caribou. There
were two of them. They weighed eighty
pounds each. The killing was done in self
defense. We skinned these caribou and
hung them on the limb of the spruce, out
of the reach of mountain lions.
, "The next day the two shooters who
Went out came into camp about 4 p. m.
and asked all hands to come along quick
they had 'something to carry.' What that
something proved to be is in evidence at B24

tufted floor and the bear weighed over

self, but I want you to understand that 1
wus one of the party that did. And while
loitering about the camp waiting for the
others to do the big game act I found two
bee trees that contained about fourteen
bushels, as nearly as we could estimate it,
"We were fifteen days in the mountains,
ami our table d'hote bill of fare was prin
cipally trout, caribou, b'ar meat and wild
honey, which is a better layout by nt least
three points than John the Baptist could
boast in his most halcyon and vociferous
days. Gentlemen, will you join me in a
glass of wild cherry phosphate or some
thing at the place across the way?"
He knew the crowd. It was his easiest
way to avoid a return tire. They joined

Wealth the True ISasts for Titles.
It seems to me that it would be much
better, and far more in keeping with the
spirit of the times, to make all titles a
question of pounds, shillings and pence.
We have gone a good way in that direction.
If a man can make so many thousand
pounds out of beer, or railway contracting,
or selling newspapers, he may have any
t itle he pleases, provided he goes the right
way to work.
But we don't do the thing systematically.
It isn't on a businesslike footing. Very
often the man who gets a title has pre
viously received vast sums of public money
for doing little or nothi and even when
he procures the title by Ms own money the
payment dr. is not go into the publio treas
uryas it ought to. He pays it to the
party funds, or something of that kind.
The system that prevails in some of tho
minor European states is vastly more sen
sible. We onght to have a fixed tariff so many
hundred thousand pounds for a dukedom,
so many for a marquisatc, bo many thou
sand for on earldom and soon. The money
paid for the titles would go Into tho con
solidated fdnd, and every nobleman would
have pro rata a solid title to public re
spect. When we abolish the house of lords
I expect that we shall have to adopt some
plan of this kind, for though we may be
able to do without the house I doubt
whether Englishmen will ever be ablo to
do without the lords. Henry Labouchero

"Suotrsfttion is by no means confined to
the uneducated classes," remarked Johu
Henry Jamison to a party that was spin

less strongly defined vein of superstition in

bo ceremony at midnight on the first day
of May, then looking into an open well, a
maid may see the face of her f utu -e hus
band. Her brother had been a college chum
of mine, and together we fixed up .t little
scheme. We made a round screen of thin
cardboard that would just fit the well ou
her father's premises. In the center we
cut a hole large enough to admit my head.
Shortly before midnight I entered the well
with my screen and a lamp. I descended
twelve or fif tisy feet, put my head through
the screen, beneath which I held the lamp.
"I had just completed my arrangements
when I heard the young lady chanting the
mystic lines. She looked into the well and
appeared frightened, but satisfied. The
next day I 'popped the question' and was
accepted. I have never undeceived her.
She believes to this day that our marriage

A Story of the Abbe May.
A cure from the country called on the
Abbe May at Paris one day, and after
complimenting him with earnestness and
sincerity ou his creditable and deserved
reputation, said that he was involved In a
lawsuit which he did not understand. He
asked the abbu to advise him whether he
was in the right or in the wrong, and
whether he had better carry on the suit.
So saying he delivered to the great jurist
an enormous puckuge of papers covered
with almost illegible handwriting.
The abbe cheerfully accepted the task,
and told tho cure to call again in two
weeks. He was pleased with the good,
simple hearted man, and devoted his best
energies to clearing up the case, though he
was obliged to put other matters aside iu
order to do so.
The cure called on the day appointed,
took the abbe's written opinion and read It
through critically. He was delighted with
the enthusiasm and clearness with which
his rights were set forth. He embraced
tho abbe gratefully nnd cried: "Ah, mon
sieur, no one could be better pleased than I
am, and I want you to be satisfied also.
Here is money, monsieur, please take what
is due you," nnd he threw a' thro franc
piece on tho table.

Bubbujfo and Bis Machine.
Mr. Babbage had reached his anecdotago,
was in the mood to be communicative, and
my friend, Mi Kinglake, claiming the
privilege of ae, asked without reserve
such questions as induced our host to be
autobiographical. He told us that not
only had he crippled his private fortune by
his devotion to his calculating machine,
but that for this idol of his brain he had
given up all pleasures and comforts of do
mestic life. Ho married early, but his
wife died while he was a young man.
With an amount of feeling that I had
never associated with a philosopher who
wore the armor of cynicism, he pathetically
lamented the dreary isolation of his lot,
"for of course," said he, "fond as I am of
domestic life I should have married again
if it had not been for my machine."
Ho spoke of his mother on this memora
ble evening, repeating to us her reply when
it became a question whether he should
make further outlay respecting the ma
chine, which had already cost his private
purse 20,000. The old lady said with a
large mindedness rare in our thrifty sex:

A Girl's Inconsistency.
A girl who emphatically affirms that
poor, tired ont men ought not t'o feel

it rudeness of the worst type not to thauk

ing in her confiding journal:
I am mad; mad; mnd! I have to stand
up going down to work and I have to stand
up coming homo. I have not had a seat in
a street car for three months, and am think

The selfish men seem to glory in watch

Stockton's Story In Heathen Laud,
Tho Karens are a tribe in upper Burmah
who have been partially converted to
Christianity. They were never Idol wor
shipers, for they had a strange traditlou
that a white man should come in a white
boat, with a white book, which should
teach them about the great spirit whom
Miss Evans, a cousin of Frank Stockton,
and a missionary to this tribe, has receutly
returned home. She expected to pass the
summer with theStocktoiiB, but Mr. Stock
ton was ordured abroad for his health, and
they passed each other in mldocean. She
tells a story in regard to the famous "Lady
or the Tiger."
She used to tell this tale over and over
again to the Karen women as they gathered
about her, their bright, dusky faces full of
intense interest, and each time when she
came to the question, "Which was itf" the
answer invariably was "The Tiger." Their
ideas of revenge wero such that they could
not understand a love self sacrificing
enough to cause the princess to save her
lover at the expense of her own suffering.
Miss Evans wrote Frank Stockton about
this, and he replied: "I have received many
letters from notable men and women, by
which 1 felt greatly honored, but when I
heard of those heathen Karen women,
almost at the ends of the earth listening to
my story, I said, 'That is fame.' "New

At sunset, in the forest of Guiana, the
bats flit from their hiding places, some

vampires wander far and near in search of
