"SUFFERIN' NATE.' Rate Treslo was, as he himself was ont to declare, '-th' most patient an long-sutlerin' man on airth." It was Kate's way to be patient and lonn-suiTerintr, just as it is some men's way to 'My oil the hooks" and lose their tempers on the sliphest provo cation. 1'ernaps the latter way la more convenient, as saving one a vast amount of lacerated feelings and loss of pride, but date's way had the ad vantage of costing its owner fewer post-mortem regrets and fewer friends. True it is that3ate's friends were wont to impose on him much as other people aid, but he diJu't mind that at least, thev thought he didn't. And it was this supposition that led some of them into subse jnent difficulty. Rate was one of the principal characters and most important feat ures of Manganese, where he lived. To be a principal character necessi tates the possession of much spare time, and 'ate had this essential qualification nearly every day in the week. When nc marrc nave it, ne wa3 at work, but this did not happen often. Nate was like Rip Van Winkle always ready to take a drink, or to lend a band for the benetit of lome cne else, but prone to shirk la tor which might beneflt himself and his family. So Mr. Preslo sewed aresscs and thing, which was quite convenient for Nate, as it gave him more time to indulge his fancy foi loafing. Nate's loating-places were the Ex Change and lied Front saloons. These places were most convenient, being provided with plenty of chairs, and being the places roost affected by citizens likely to set 'em up. Here 'ate did most of bis suffering, of whatever kind. It came mostly in the form of jokes, practical and of mouth, leveled at Uiiu by his fellow citizens, and in thn c he took a sort Of mournful pleasure, as being an in dication of his popularity. It Is a well-established fact that an unpopu lar man Is seldom troubled by jokers. Like most of his kind, Nate had a dog (not a yellow one, however, but a spaniel) to assist him in leafing, and it was Curly whose misfortunes lei to Hate's final reformation. One afternoon, as Nate was lazilj holding forth to some of his cronies from his seat in the Exchange, there was a slight commotion on the street outride, and they went to the door to ascertain the cause. It was Curly. He had stopped in at the Red Front to look for Nato, and some of the crowd down there had proceeded to have fun with him by tying a tin-can to his tail. He was now coming up the street somewhat more rapidly than usual, and heading for the Ex change, as a possible place of refuge. Kate picked him up and carried him inside, where he removed the can. Then he sat quite still for a few mo ments, petting Curly, and quite un conscious of the laughing mob in the saloon, cracking fool-jokes at his and Curlv's expense. Suddenly he arose, and, without a glance at any one. strode out of the door. The crowd followed, wonder log what he Intended doing. 'ate stopped a minute in front of the bar ber-shop to speak to Jim Calkins. Got a gun, Jim?" "Yes." "Gimme It, fr a few minutes." 'AVhat ye goln' t' do, Nate?" "Jim," answered Nate, slowly, but working his nails in and out of his palms very fast, "I'm coin' down t' lick th' brute th't put that canon th' pup an' I want V bo fixed t' shoot back ef he makes a gun-play." Jim handed him the desired six shooter, and he went on down the street tD the Red Front. The jokers had cone Inside, and were laughing as they waited at the bar for drinks. "Hulto, Nate!" called Nosey Trice, frho was "buying. " "Bring th dog, an' come an have a drink. Dooi he drink, too? I see 'iui rushin' th' can les now.'1 Of course all the men laughed up roarlonsly, but they stopped short at eight of Nate's uplifted hand and blazing eyes. "Hoi' on. Nosey," said Nate quietly, "I want t' know, first place, who tied that there can on th' pup's tall?" Tho knot of drinkers at the bai jookcl at each other halt-amusedly for a socond or two, and then one asked, laughingly: "Why, Nate?" "Because," answered Nate, "I jes come down yere t' r'mark th't I'm patient an' long-sufferiu' myself, but, " Another laugh interrupted him, and thon he went on: "But I don't perpose no brute it goia' V tease that dog o' mine, none whatever. Th' man th't done it is a dirty, sneaking coward, an I c'n lick im!" - They saw he was in earnest, and A id not laugh. Bill Klley, a big raw, boned. ham-Osted "bad" man from High Pines, who stood at the further end of the bar. stepped forward. "Wh-what did ye say?" he asked, iurprisedly. "W'y, you half-Rrowed sniveler " They were not quite sure how it happened; none of them had evci seen Nate lift his hand against a fel low man, atd they were totally un prepared fcr what happened. In icarce fifteen seconds, Nate, bleeding but triumphant, sat astride bis an tagonist, enthuslast'cally thumping Lira on the head with the butt of the prostrate Kiley'snwn revolver which the latter had dropped somehow early In the argument when the crowd in terfered and dragged them apart. After taking a couple of drinks and washing his face, Nate walked home, preceded by Curly, who seemed to feel that ho had been thoroughly avenged, and acted like a callow pup In his satisfaction. Nate did not go down town again that day. He went into the bouse and surprised his wife by kissing her. after which he went out and split a most amazing amount of stovo-wood, and in the evening he played with the children and "tink jred 'round." Mrs. Preslo could not understand im. At first she feared bo was go ing to bo ill; but lie looked quite nealtby, barring a black cyo and a raised cheek. His wifo Inquired, ifter ti e children bad gono to bed, if ha bad been hurt. Nate rose from his seat by the table and came over to where she sat "Letty," fie said, stralghtenlut limself up end looklat straigpt at Ml. 'I'm th' mot patient aaV ion- SuTTerirr man on ainor&n' you're th' most patient an' long-eufferin' woman on airth but, see yere, Lett Preslo, we hain't, n'r onr kids hain't, n'r Curly hain't a-goin' t do any more o this fool-pufferin'. I've got sick an' tired of it, an' 1 lea' c'nclnded f show folks I hain't a-goin t' stan no mors of it" And he told her about the trouble that afternoon, and bow be had made up bis mind to stop buf fer in' " and do something more profit able and respectable. Next morning, Kate' did not go Jown town until 9 o'clock. Then he walked briskly down and called on 'Squire Field, who was a leading law yer and politician. The 'Sqmro was just looking over his letters when Nate came in, but something In the latter's face arrested his attention, and he stopped his work to learn what Nate wanted. '"Squire," said Nate, earnestly. "the city convention's two weeks I'm t-dav, hain't it? "M-m, yes; so it is." "Wall, 'Squire, 1 want th' nomana- tion fr city marshalL " The 'Squire was amazed. "You, Nate? Why " "Hoi on, 'Squire. I want t' tell e, first off. th't I hain't Ssufferin' Nate' no more. That's all over. I'm Nate Treslo. an' don't perpose t' do no more sufferln. " 'SquU e, hain't I always been a good party man? an' worked hard ev'ry election? an' never asked fr nothin' more'n a seat in con ventions?" "Yes, you have, Nate; but but see here, you know that we've got to have a strong candidate for marshal. The other fellows have beaten our nominee three times with Buckley- he's a strong candidate and a good officer." "All right, 'Squire; but I reckon I ;'n make as strong a run as anybody in our crowd. Who've je got th't c'n Jo better?" The 'Squire pondered. "Well, Ben 'onant wants it "Ben Conant's got one good job. Squire. An' has he got more frien's n I have?" "Well, you see, Nate, to be frank, :here are a good many people whe don't exactly approve of you. Now, there's something that the good folks would look dubious about been fight ing. Nate? 1 never knew you to." Nate grinned. "That's th' b'gin jin' o' th' end o' my sufferin',' 'Squire." And he told him about it. The 'Squire tapped his teeth with .lis pencil lor a few moments. "Nate," he said, at last, "keep mum, and come up this afternoon, about hve o'clock. " That afternoon, the four or five jrentlemen who guided the destinies of the party in Manganese held a star-chamber session in 'Squire Field's office. The 'Squire Informed them of Nate's morning visit and the conver sation that had taken place; and, af ter some deliberation, it was decided that inasmuch as Nate had. quit "sufferln" and had resolved to "brace up," he should have the nomi nation he deslrel. They did not be lieve he could beat Charley Buckley, but they wanted to show their good will by "slating" him, anyway. To say that most people were sur prised when Nate's nomination was announced, would be putting it mild ly. But the atute politicians, who bad had a couple of weeks to consider the matter, nodded their beads wisely, and were fully convinced that a much worse selection might have been made. Nate paid small atten tion to what people thought or said, lie kept steadily at work at his tem porary 1ob in the brick-yards, and iid his electioneering out of working hours. Of course the "boys" had fun with nim, and he tooK it all in good part; they did riot go too far with him, however. If people were surprised at Nate's aomination, they were dazed at bis election. He carried the city by a majority of over a hundred votes, much to the consternation of Mr. Buckley and his party. There was, as is customary, an in formal celebration at the Exchange ind other resorts tbat night. Amid the congratulations and flow or spir its (of various kinds). Nate found and availed himself ot an opportunity tc jutline his future policy. "Boys," he said, "I'm mighty thankful an' glad ye've put me in; an' now I want t' say, an' ye may' ve seen, th't it'll be a right good scheme t' r'memberth't I hain't 'Sufferin' Nate' no more an' that'll save any an' all misunderstandings. Hain't I right, Charlie?" "You just bet"' responded the de feated Mr. Buckley, fervently, and its response was approved by nearly ill present. But many people are forgetful, and iome are neglectful and skeptical, ind no sooner had Nate been installed in office and donned his star (the Mayor presented blm with a new one it the next council meeting, when the officers-elect were sworn in) and strapped on his six-shooter, than trouble began. Buckley had celebrated his retire ment from office by getting too drunk to kick the clothes off the bed in which he was placed ataa early hour, ind Nate was called on to perform duty at once. A gang of six "bad" men from Georgetown, hearing of Nate's election and his Induction into office, had come down to "do up" the town and make it uncomfortable for the new marshal, to whom they sent word tbat they would kill him if he interfered. They had a wholesome fear of Buckley, but "Sufferln' Sate" Nate left the council-room ana .valked 6ver to the Double Eagle Saloon, Where the six "bads" were. They were leaning against the bar and talking of "eating" the new marshal. Nate stepped inside and up to the end of the bar, very pale, but Arm, and "covering" the whole line with his revolver. "Boys," he remarked, as (with .lands uplifted, of course) they stared at him, bardly willing to believe their eyes, "I beerd ye talkln about eatin' a chap named 'Sufferin' Nate.' They hain't no seen person; but here's Nate Preslo, City Marshal, an' be wants ye. It they's any klllln' goln' on, I j'n git two 'r three t your one; don't f'rgit tbat Wilt" be said to the bartender, "take the'r guns." The bartender obeyed, and Nate marched his half-dozen "bad" men to the lock-up, whence they emerged next day to pay their floe and shake bands cordially with Nate, who drank with them in a friendly way. This was not quite the end ot Sate's "sufferln's;" for not a few of his friends essayed to take advantage of him, now and then, and Impose on his good nature; bnt it was not long before they found out that Nate was no respecter ot persons when bis dnty ras involved, and that be would not "suffer" any more tbaa the pride of i man would permit; so tbat when ihc next city ilootlon came on, Nate vu ra-elected by a rousing majority.

I am, however, in- ;llned to think it . will not so in crease; for one thing, we will not have the same inducements to offer to immigrants. When the price of land goes up, as it is oouod to do, and Its acquisition requires more money; when more capital is required to un lertake farming, except on thesmall tst scale, and truck farms near cities bring a high rent and call for the rre itest intelligence as well as in lUoiry on the part of the farmer one of the chief inducements to for eigners seeking our shores namely: tbe acquisition of farms of their own will disappear. At the same time the liberal tendencies of all civilized countries, even under monarchical governments, will lessen the number Df those who leave the older countries ror the sake of greater political free join. Immigration to tbe United States will consist more and more ol s few comparatively well-to-do per ioos seeking opportunities lor the profitable investment of a small capi tal, and who, possessing some educa tion and training in tbe art of self rovernment will readily amalgamate ivlth our own people, or of the poor ;st classes well content to serve for a time in the ranks of labor, provided the rate of wages is hili enouixh tc reward their frugality witn moaerate savings.

Among the smaller animals none are so Intelligent, practical and sober-minded as the busy bee. lie will mount in the air and fly in a straight line for his hive. When a man wishes to say tha.t he has gone by the shortest line from one point to another and that, as mathematics teach, is a straight line he says he "made a bee line" for the place. So In the structure of their cells they apply by instinct the form and' proportions which reason proves to be the most effective and economica' of space. It would appear, therefore, a very simple thing to teach bees tricks and In troduce them to a professional life as performers on the amusement stage. Yet probably very few have ever seen them trained. In 1831, however, a Mr. W'Hdeman of Tlymouth did train a troup and exhibited them for the recrea tion of tbe curious public. He trained a swarm of bees so well that he made them enact maneuvers with as much precision and unity as soldiers going through field tactics. Wtldeman would appear before an audience with the bees swarming all over him. They were on his face and hands, crawling over his clothes, and his pockets wer full of them. The hives of the bees were in a cer tain part of the hall quite removed from the stage where W'Hdeman stood with them thickly clustered on him. He would give a whistle, and the bees at once flew to their hives. When they got well settled there he would whistle again, and back they flew and settled on his face, his hands and clothes once more. This was done with the greatest promptness and regularity. It must have been some solicitude that the spectators assisted at this performance. But It Is due to the bees, and perhaps to Wildeman, to say that no one war ver stung by them.

The moss not only existed In vast numbers and for thousands of rears, but had such aiver- 4ity of form as to embrace no less than seven genera, containing twenty-flve species a remarkable fact which Is unparalleled In any other part of the world. The commonest kinds In the North Island were only from two and a half to four feet high. Those of the South are and were mostly from four to six feet tall, while the giant forms, reaching twelve and thirteen feet, wer always rare. Immense deposits of moa bones have been found In localities to which they appeared to have been washed from the hills In tertiary times. Skeletons on the surface of the.ground, with skin and lig aments aflll attached, have given the Impression that these birds have been exterminated in very recent years, but other facts point to a different conclu sion. Tradition seems to show, ac cording to F. M. Hutton, that the moa became extinct In the North Island soon after the arrival of the Maoris In New Zealand that Is, not less than 400 to 500 years ago and In the South Isl and about 100 years later. The fresh-appearing skin and ligs mcnts are supposed to have been pre served by unusually favorable condl tlons. Pr.

Ask your druggist WHAT IS UGLINESS? Difficult to Define It, Even If It Exist in Women. Absolute ugliness In girls Is, accord ing to woman, very seldom met with, irregularity. Insignificance or want of harmony lu the features Is not sufficient to constitute real ugliness. A high fore bead Is nowadays universally consid ered to be a misfortune. A pasty complexion Is, no doubt, a ca lamity, so Is a long upper lip, and so is a large chin. But a- girl's face may have any one ef these characteristics It may possess them all without be.ng positively ugly. An Intelligent mind and a gentle spirit may do wonders In transforming a plain face and making It, if not buau tlful, attractive. And the proof of this Is tbe often noted fact that many plain and even ugly girls are led to the altar, while their handsomer sisters win admlratlor without Inspiring love. It Is when plain and badly formed features are the lome of stupidity when they are nnlllumlnatod by n spark or a ray of generous feeling that they form a truly ugly face. Such faces there are, and there art also no doubt fnTs cn-t hy nature in so broad a mold that nothing will ren der them attractive, any more than a deformed figure can be made comely; but such comeliness Is almost as rare at beauty itself. Men often excuse themselves from at tendance on plain young women on this ground, that they are not only 111 looking but 111-temered. There la, too, much truth In th charge. But the ugly girl Is not with out excuse. The consciousness that no man or woman cares to look at her face a Second time. Joined to the sens! tlveness she has acquired. Is apt to sour her temper, and this. In its truth, teudr to Increase, her ugliness. Yet it is a singular fact that if a mai for any reason pays marked attention to a plain girl, she Is apt to hold her chin half an Inch higher In the air than a good-IooklDg girl would do under thf same circumstances. It would be futile to Inquire Into th. reason of this tendency on the part of ugly girls to give themselves airs, but the fact Is patent to all men. Clncin atl Gazette. . He Found Nothing to Iteport, A young reporter was sent out recent ly by the city editor of one of the Koch- ester papers to report a meeting. About two hours after the assignment was made, the young reporter returned with a sad countenance. The city editor asked him to get the report up Immediately, as It was nearly time to go to press. "There will not be any re port on that meeting." was the answer. "Why not?" queried the city editor. "There was not any meeting," replied tbe yonng reporter; "It broke op In a big row, and the chairman was chuck ed under the table." William Jenkins dronrjed dead from joy at being released from the insane noapiiai at Dpencer, w. Va, English leather gloves were sold all over Europe in 1847. People Remember." One Yon, Beacncumbers make a good living, n a rule, by collecting nearly everything .. u MQts nnon the beaches. The fall of the year is their profitable season. The September gales send the on the beaches and carry the surface sand back with them, leaving the hard-pan expueeu. -hard-pan is found on every beach, and varies from a light yellow to a dark brown. When Jewelry, money, or any valuables are lost, they vjtork down through the light surface sand with marvellous quickness, and Anally col lect on this hard-pan. There they re main concealed from aU human eyes until the fall gales expose them to view. The beachcomber considers all such findings hl legal property, and with a long stick In his hands and tight rubber boots on his feet, searches the whole length of the beach for his booty. None but a beachcomber realizes bow much can be collected after, the first fall storms. The summer visitors seem de termined to plant the beaches with rings, pins, watches, silver and gold coin, buckles, and many trifles. Sev eral thousand dollars' worth of Jewelry are lost annually on the Long Island beaches, and even more on the Jersey coast. The watches are usually good only for the amount ol gold or silver In them, for the salt water ruins the works In a short time. Last fall a beach comber found on Fire Island beach a handsome watch, which he sold for $70, besides $20 in silver coin, and many trinkets. Altogether his findings amounted to over $.'500. During the summer season many beachcombers go forth every morning by sunrise to search tho b aches, and every day they pick up valuables of various descrip tions. While one Is lying on the sand, monpv verv easily rolls out of the pocket, and a great deal of small chaiigr U found in consequence. After the Storm. Another profitable season -for th beachcombers is lu the middla of win ter, after every severe storm. The articles of valuo then come from 'vrecks, and consist of about everything that one can Imagine. A lumber-laden schooner may go to pieces on the reef, and enough fine Georgia pine will drift ashore to build several houses. By means of a long pole, tipped with an Iron hook, the beachcomber stands knee deep in the water and collects lumber by the wholesale. He may sell this for good money, or use It for build ing a house. A coal-laden schooner springs a leak In the storm, and the captain, to save the crew, beaches her. She strikes a reef and goes to pieces, and everything drifts away except the coal. During the very low tides a hun dred tons of coal are expos,-. to view on the reef. The beachcomber gathers this for the local market or for his own use. Fruits, nuts and general mer chandise are washed upon the beaches; soma are water-soaked and ruined; others are not Injured at alL More or less personal property also makes Its way to the shore. Wound In Rinong thrt on tlio lpnr-1i.omlpra xvtll fin.. various articles of clothing, long colls J of rope, broken spnrs and rigging, and j even small anchors. Occasionally rusty, broken, and tarnNhod rings, parts of watch-chains, and other jewelry, will glisten from heaps pf wet sand. It would be Impossible for even a beach comber to enunorate the great variety of articles he collects. IJeachcombers are usually farmer fishermen. They collect the driftwood for burning, sea weed for bedding their cows and pigs, nod iini-ci.T f,,r f(-ti''-'!ng tl.eir few acres of tillable land. Koine are natur ally too lazy to work at anything other than hunting for things thrown up on the beaches. They make a precarious ivlng, and, unless numerous wrecks are cast up for them, they are opt to feel the pinch of winter, and suffer fo he necessaries of life. Tiiroat i'ir.iijst. (From fie Courier-ITfralJ, SajiuC b, 3ric7u) It was publicly talked aU over Clara County, Michigan, tor some tltno before tha Courier-fci-aId sent a reporter to Dover to fully lnvestlgatetU9 Coulter matter.

"About three years a jo I had a mlsratl feeling at the hack of my eare. my rihi hand hwnme paralyzed and the paralysis extend ed to my arm ami throat, and would affect my bend and eyes, 8o'netim3. foi days I would lose my Sife-ht, my far-e wns deformed, lifeless as it were, my nose was drawn to one side, and I presented a pitiable appearanoe snd never expecting to retain ray natural faeial expressions. I employed the best phy sicians that could be procured, expending thousands of dollars for their services, but couid not obtain relief. At last, they stated my cas was beyond the reach of medical skill, and It would be but a short time until the end would come. This certainly was not very encourairing to me, but I never gave up hope. In connection with receiving the at tendance of physicians I have tried every medicine known to tho apothecary but nevr received any relief until Dr. Williams' J'ink Pills for Pale People came to mv assistance. Before I had taken half of the ilrst box ths (.e'ormity In my face had left m", aud before four boxes had been consumed the paralysis had disappeared entirely, and much to my surprise I felt like a new woman. I have not taken any medicine since last spring, just about a year ago, and my trouble has not appeared since. I owe my health, my Ufe to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. "A. short time since my little boy John was afflicted with St. Vitus' dance. Ha could not walk across the room without as sistance, in fact he would fall all over him self, but after taking a few boxes of Dr. Willinms' Pink Pills, St- Vitus' dance entre ly left him, and no trace ol the affliction is left These Pills are worth their weight In gold. You may say In this connection that I am willing at any time to make affidavit to the truth of these statements, and further more, I will answer any communication con cerning my caso, as I consider it nothing more than right and just that I should assist suffering humanity."

While cleaning and renovating the premises formerly occupied by Miss Mary. Moss, deceased, at Lansingburg, N. a number of valuable coins were found, some dating back 1S7 years. Tho coins were mostly English, all sil ver, although some copper and gold pieces were found. A large number of old newspapers and magazines were found. The Troy Times, from 1S64 to the pres ent time, was Included. It Is estimated tbat Miss Moss' wardrobe consisted of more than 200 dresses and a large num ber of hats of styles from 1840 to the present day were found.
