A LUMP OF GOLD.
The Largest Piece of Auriferous
Metal Ever Found.
Its Discovery Cost Three Men
How many know where the largest
single lump of nativo gold ever seen in
America was found? In California?
No. In Colorado? No. In the Black
Hills, Ctcur d' Alene, Nevada, New
Mexico? No. In Old Mexico, Peru,
Bolivia, in in the Callao of
Venzuela? No. "Where then? In North
Carolina. And its story is as woird and
fateful as the Rhinegold's.
A poor and ignorant Irishman, living
in the mountains, solitary and lonely,
propped open the door of his cabin
with a lump of metal. Ho had found
it sticking out from a water-washed
gully and carried it home as a curiosity.
Though no larger than a small cymling,
it was a woighty lug for a mile. It was
a dull yellow, irregular in shape, and
pieces of stone wero imbedded in it •
For over two years a fortuno lay upon
the floor of his hovel, while ho toiled,
early and late, making a littto whiskey
and digging ginseng root to oarn a
scanty living. A companion mountain
eer, who had known more of the out
side world, thought this strango stone
might bo sold at Ashovillc as a curiosi
ty for a lot of money—ten dollars per
haps. This was in the flush days be
fore the war. lie had seen quartz crys
tals from Roan Mountain bring that
much. A third mountaineer was called
in consultation. Ten dollars was a lot
of money. The third man had been a
traveler, a regular globe trotter. He
went to Asheville four times a year, and
had been clear to Wilmington.
Walking around the dump he gazed
at it from every side, touched it with
his toe, spat upon it, and breathed
"Hit air with nuthin', er hit air a
pile," said he. "Hit air nothin' but
brass, er hit air " He looked around
on the other two with a queer expres
"Ef hit air brass"—ho drew a clasp
knife and scraped the dull inetal till a
new surface glittered— "vinegar'll rust
hit. Ef hit air goold, hit won't."
He poured some vinegar from a jug
which was brought to him, upon the
fresh facing of the lump. The three
men hung over it intently. Five, ten,
fifteen minutes passed and still the metal
shone clear and untarnished.
"And I've heerd goold was wuth
more'n two hundred dollars a pound!"
said the second.
What a d—d fool I have been!"
groaned the owner of tho cabin. "For
two years I've workod, an' wealth 1
never dreamod of kickin' uudher my
"I claim" a third," broke in tho as
sayer. "Yc'd never a knowed what hit
war, but fer me."
"An' a third for me," said tho other.
The owner of the gold gave a sullen
assent. Thoy obtained a pair of steel -
yards and weighed the gold. It turned
the scales at over a hundred pounds
avoirdupois aud they roughly estimated
it to bo worth $25,000, over SBOOO
apiece. That night all three sat up and
watched the treasure, unable to sleep
from excitement and thoroughly sus
picious of each other. Tho next day
they rolled it securely in a cloth and
started for Ashevillo afoot with the
gold Blung to a pole and carried between
It was the devil's gold. At tho first
halting place the Irishman and tho sec
ond mountaineer conspired to kill the
third and he was shot dead from be
hind. Hastily throwing his body into
a clump of bushes, tho murderers faced
each other in tho road. Suspicion
roused in each guilty breast saw treach
ery in each other's glance.
"Here, ' said one, forcing an uneasy
laugh. "There's only ono way to set
tle this. Let's divide tho gold and
each go his way."
"Agreed," said the other.
The lump was laid in the roadway and
chopped in two with a hatchet.
"Take your choice, ' said ono. As
the other bent to lift his half his com
panion split tho head of tho stooping
man with his hatchet. Tho gold was
his. With biiu 1 fatuity ho dragged
the second victim to the side of tho
road, lifted the bloodstained treasuro
and went on. At Ashevillo ho took it
to tho bank and had it shipped to the
United Sates mint. In less than a
week, and before any return could be
had from the mint, tho bodies of tho
two murdered men had been discov
ered and tho crime traccil directly
home. The mifciablo wretch was
thrust in j lil, an 1 there he died within
a year. The "witcj gol 1 fortune never
crossed his hands, remaining in the
Federal treasury for lark of owner
The region wheoe the lump was found
has been scoured foot by foot, but not
another lump like that has ever been
, discovered iu that or any other section
of America. It is said that a few weeks
ago an English company, which is
working theNacoocheo mine in Georgia,
took out a nugget weighing 1000 pen
nyweight, yet the North Carolina lump
weighed over 1500 ounces.— Washing
With regard to the new bread plant,
which has attracted so much attention
of late from the milling journals, a
newspaper in Florida has this to say:
"The cassava thrives and produces
splendidly. The eatuble portion of the
cassava is tho roots or tubers. When
the roots are grated or mixed in equal
proportion with flour, nice dishes can
be made of it, lit to bo set before a
king. In custard, pudding, pies and
fritters it can not be beat, whilo mixed
with equal quantity of corn moal and
made into frittors it will deceive an old
oysterman. It is enormously productive,
producing many tons per acre. It is
fine feed for hogs, cattle, sheep and
poultry; hogs will quit corn for it, and
thrive and grow fat on it. I candidly
believe there is no single article of food
on the globe that will produce more to
the acre. It succeeds well on good
light soil that is well drainod. It re
sembles in growth the castor
beau, and is an ornament to
any garden. It should be planted j
on wido ranges (six feet) and
set four feet apart on tho ridge. First
cut your stalks in pieces four inches
long, with two or threo good eyes, and \
set theia perpendicularly, just deep |
enough so tho end may bo even with
the ground. Cultivate as you would \
sweet potatoes, except in the latter part j
of the season give shallow culture, so as j
not to cut the roots, which usually ex
tend four or five feet around the plants I
in all directions. Tho tubes will not
keep a week in the open air. We dig
them as we want them, or turn our hogs
on them. The roots or tubers will keep
all winter in the ground when plau ted
on well-drained soil. We keep tho
stalks through winter by sawing them
close to the ground and banking them
yp with sand, a layer of sand and a
layer of cassava stalks, until it is made [
steep; then put a shed over that so as I
to shed off tho rain. It will stand a I
certain amouut of moisture, but no j
water-soaked soil. It stands drouth
well, without wilting a loaf. Cassava,
no doubt, will be largely planted iu tho
South when better known."
Why They Married.
Iu an old book written by a West
ern Congressman, a contemporary of
Clay and Webster, containing remin
iscences of his times a story is told
of one of his friends, a farmer in
Kentucky named Payne, who had six
daughters, none of whom was blessed
wiih beauty. The Congressman knew I
them in their homely youth, and
when he returned a few years later
found them all married to good, in
fluential men. So great was his sur
prise that he ventured to ask their
father why they all had been so sought
when other girls remained neglected.
The old farmer chuckle I.
"Yes, and you may say, when they
had neither dower nor good looks.
Well, I'll tell you. When I want my
cattle to eat buckwheat stubble, in
stead of grass, I don't drive them into
that field. I fence it off from them.
They are so contrary that they always
want the thing they can't get. They
breakdown the fence: I drive them
out and put it up. By tho time they
fight for it onco or twice they think
they like the stubble.
"Well, I saw my girls weren't the
most attractivo kind, and—l fenced
"You never found them in the hotels
dancin', or keepin' stalls at county
fairs. Young men to know them had
to come to tlieir father's house. When
the neighbors saw how the Payne girls
were kept apart from the crowd they
thought their valua must bo high.
Young men came to break down the
The story was coarsely told, per
haps," adds the old narrator, but thero
is more in it than meets the eye."

A DANGEROUS SPOT.
Where the United States Navy
Stores Its Guipowder.
Big Magazines on Ellis Island In
New York Bay.
More than one huudrcd tons of gun
powder aro stored in threo magazines on
a small isiand in the bay but two miles
from New York City and within eight
hundred yards of the Communipawi
docks at Jersey City. The island is|
known as Ellis Island, and is three acres
and a half in size, with a rough, rocky
back on all sides.
It has been in use as a powder depot
for the Navy Department for nearly
thirty years, and all the buildings on
the island, of which there are eleven,:
are of plain, old-fashioned appearance,
although they aro said to bo still sound}
and good for many years' future ser
vice. The main building is circular in
form and is built close to the water's
edge on the northern extremity, facing
New York. It is a somewhat strag
gling-looking building from the out-,
side, being irregular in height and
painted a bright yellow; but inside the
greater portion of the 100 tons of pow
der now on the island is housed and in
There aro two kinds of powder in the
magaziuos. The prismatic powder, of
which thcro is 130,000 pounds, or 1
about 65 ton", is packed in small square
boxes, and the common cannon pow
der, of which there is 200 barrels, or
about 42 tons, is stored away in bar
rels, as there is less danger from com
bustion in this grade of powder than
from the other. Inside the magazines, I
where the powder is kept, the cases and !
barrels are carefully arranged in rows !
along the walls, and a daily examina
tion of the condition of the combusti
bles is m:ule. On fair days the maga
zines are opened and aired, but greal
care is taken to exclude the damp.
No one is allowed to enter the pow- 1
der magazines without having first re-i !
moved his shoes, and even then ho ii i
cautioned not to handle anything dur- J
ing his inspection of the great store- j
rooms, while a vigilant watch is kep!
to see that he observes the commands
Besides tho circular storeroom there
are two others, standing near the centre
of tho island, which contain powder.
Then there is a largo building, half
workroom and half storeroom, for car
tridges and gun cotton. In this build
ing a force of three men is etnpl oyed in
preparing the ammunition for war ships.
In this workroom there are half a dozen
kinds of gun charges. These are tho
one, three and six pound shells for tho
llotclikiss breech-loading gun, and tho
five, six and eight pound shells for
larger cannon. Some of these shells ni6
plain, while others havo steel tips, and
their shapes vary according to tho make
of the gun to which they belong.
Oinl of tho most interesting of these
charges is for the six-inch rifle bore.
The charge is composed of numerous
ftnifl pieces of compressed powder of a
peculiar, six-sided shape. Tho man
employed in making the charge begins
by placing a round piece of board be
fore him on which aro painted figures
exactly resembling the bits of com
pressed powder used. He then inserts
an iron rod in tho center of tho board,
after which he attaches tho powder to it
by round holes bored through the cen
tre of each piece. When the first pile
is mado ho begins to build tho blocks
up around it until he has a column ot
a circular form about five inches in
thickness. A common bag is then
placed over the charge to keep it iw
place, the iron rod ia removed and the
bag is encased in a copper cylinder un
til used. This b tho most complex and
difficult charge used in the Navy do
Two of the buildings on the island
aro residences, and tho remainder aro
used as workshops and magazines. All
are painted a bright yellow. Near the
main magazino stands an engine house,
containing a stationary engine capable
of throwing water to any part of the
island. A hose and reel are attached;
to tho engine house, and the flow of
water ran bo conducted to any part of
the island with little delay. Owing to I
the close proximity of Jersey City, a
close lookout is kept for sparks coming
from that place.
The regular force of watchmen in
charge of tho magazinos numbers four-
Every facility for hastening the work ol
loa ling a ship is to bo found on thi
island. Thero is a small railway lead- !
ing from all the principal buildings M
the wharf, on which the powder and
shells can bo conveyed more quickly

pr j cling into the soa, affords landing
for the smaller steamers and sailing
vessels. — Neto York Timet.

What Women Can Do.
Every wife or daughter living near a vil
lage or large market, can make many dollars
each year raising eggs. Just as surely as that
a woman can tend a baby better than a man,
just so certainly can she care for any animal
better. For example, Mrs. Eunice Goodwin,
East Liver more, Me,, saysi kl ln four weeks,
last autumn, my thirty hens laid 131 eggs.
I then fed them Sheridan's Condition Power,
advertised to make liens lay; and in eight
t reeJcs they laid 478. Having sold twelve, the
remainder laid 815 eggs in eight weeks, by
feeding Sheridan's Powder. Isold the eggs
for $15.03, making clear $13.38 from only
eighteen hens in eight weeks. One of my
Polish hens which I could not buy for $2.00
would have died but for Sheridan s Powder.

Things Are Seldom What They Seem.
Half a dozen school boys were worry -
ing their bruins in a sidewalk congress
the other day over a difficult problem in
quadratics. When they had fairly given
it up a battered old individual who was
shoveling coal a door or two away and
who had overheard the boys' dispute
came up and asked leave to try. Then
picking up a bit of coal he soon spread
the values of X, Y and Z on the flag
ging before the astonished boys.
Again, a party in a hotel not long ago
were drawn to watch the emotion of a
dirty and half-drunken tramp who sat in
the barroom while the sound of the piano
came from an adjacent room. As the
music ceased the vagabond rose slowly as
if in a dream, walked into the parlor, and
seating himself played for half an hour the
choicest classical music with an exquisite
and marvelous touch. These incidents
show that things are seldom what they
seem.— New York Sun,
