A YEAR AGO TO-DAY. A year URO to-day, my love, My heart was full of care; The gathered grief of long, long years Seemed more than I could bear. The past was nil so fraught with patn, The present dim with woe, The future looked so darfc to me •• One little year ago. I thought to tread my lonely path In silence, all alone; No friend to cheer with kindly word. No hand to clasp my own; No dream or hope of light or love To bless my shadowed way. Ah, welll 'Tis said: "Tiie darkest hour Ta Just before the day." So, when my deepest night had come. And life was well-nigh gone. Heaven's own kind care sent you, my dear, To herald in the dawn. The tender touch of love's own hand Rent every cloud away, And Heaven swung dazzling down to mo A year ago to-day. - And now those gentle eyes of blue Look lovingly in mine; And strong, brave hands, witft kindly clasp My trembling ones entwine; And onward, now, with happy, heart, I walk life's joyous way, And bless the boon which came to me A year ago to-day. —Mattle D. Brltts, In N. Y. Ledger. BY A SINGLE CAST. a California Millionaire Be< came a Pauper. B* Staked All on a Slosle Throw of thi Dice and Lout—A Fortune Easily Made and Recklessly Sqnandered — A Harmless, Worthless Shambling about the streets of San lYanciseo may be seen, daily, the •warped and twisted figure of a man -with a singnlar history His clothes mre tattered and greasy, his face wrinkled and distorted, and about his i shoulders his greasy, dirty, unkempt i hair falls in a shaggy mass. His feet mre .always encased in" .fragments of shoes, and he invariably carries in each > r 'hand a piece of bread and cheese, at £ •which be. nibbles as he shifts from one > saloon to another. ; Mathew Mills is Vte name of this [ strange creature, and, thougb'ooxv feed ing from the meager hand of charity, he was at one time, when California was '. in the height of her prosperity, a man \ who reckoned his wealth to run into a i million of dollars, with a splendid pros'. pect of a yearly increase in his income. Then Mathew Mills rode about the s streets of Sao Francisco in a turnout that cost thousands of dollars, and he , lived in a style that dazzled the quarter ' of a hundred other millionaires contem iporaneons with him. Now he travels •from saloon to saloon and from free lunch • to free lunch, asking alms of whoever •comes in his way when he feels thirsty , and never ordering a drink witboutfirst • tasking for the dR-e-box, that be may sae > -whether he is obliged to pay for it or .not, and when he is in.a restful mood • *lie may always be found in the card;• room of some cheap saloon, throwing 1 the dice alone and muttering to himself \ -excitedly as the spots turn up. Betas 'f a mania for dice-throwing, and this pe- ^ collar craze has won for him the title of ^ 'Dice-bos Mills. Mills has no confidants nowadays, and 1 lit is only when his thin blood is warmed 4 'by a few libations of absinthe that he will converse beyond the limit of a few ^ 'words with bis companions, and then ; the has but one topic, and "that is his » early days in California, and the sudden j, manner in which he lost his .wealth ; and came down to the exceedingly low • iplane upon which he has ever since k (traveled. : Mills was born in New Bedford, 'Mass.. in 1S20. Be*vas a sailor in early • .days, and at the age of eighteen years ^ 'bad made two trips around the world j° ! with his father, Joshua Mills, wh'o was 'f jthe ^captain of a merchantman sailing • :from New Bedford. In 1849 Mills • 'Caught the gold craze, and came around „ .4 the Horn, working his passage, and & ^landed in .'San Francisco with less than r twenty dollars in his pocket, and twenty jt i dollars in those days in San Francisco ( - went but a very short way toward lin- T ling the stomach of a healthy man or #> covering his back. But Mills was of-a f upecttJative turn of mind, and he went i^lto a hardware dealer who had been an ij, |«cquaintance of his father in New Bed"•„ Iford, and proposed fcat he let him take f j» cargo of .hob-nails, shovels, pick-axes, " I washing-pans, etc., into the mining idistricts and sell them on commission. 'The hardwaijp merchant fell in with the 1ldea,.and a few days later Mills started tout for the mines with a half dozen ipack '. mules loaded with articles that jwonld be of use to miners. The vent- 1 ore was a success. The articles sold 'readily and the margin on them was iwide. In a few months Mills had, 'Cleared enough money to enable him to ' tny an interest in the establishment of the man who had given him the start, ' land they did busin»ss together for two •years, when Mills became restless, and, £- selling out his interest to his_ partner, 'f ihe started for the mines with 88,000 in jl 'tis pocket. He stopped . at Frazer's fc. xamp, then one of the most prosperous ^mining camps, and being of a convivial J& mature, he lived a happy, careless exist- fe'ence'until hie money was,exhausted. I* During Mills' stay in California he had P become possessed with a passion for ftl gambling, and whether with cards or: dice, the reckless mauner in which he * ^played made him a conspicuous figure in i, the wild communities that sprang up '.among the Sierra Nevadas in those early ^•days. As a consequence of his reck- le^aness he gambled with varying fort- <une,; until-at last the game got the best of him, artd he found himself penniless.- . But he possessed a lively spirit, and Swith.pick and pan he set out for the * "diggin's" on a prospecting tour. Good fortune attended him, and one day, •while, bending over a spring of water a remote canyon, he noticed some glittering particles at the bottom. He scooped up some of the sand, washed it it, and found that he had tumbled a rich placer deposit. He staked it his qlaun, worked a week ar back* to the camp with a pouch Qlleo with gold dust. Oui;c I:T ••;• {.'.if cards aur! dice \r fti-;---- • . ' -IT-K! tiiu- •-• less and he returned to K.S diggings In the canyon to replenish his purse. The astonishing amount of dust that Mills had brought back to the camp with him after an absence of but one week excited considerable comment among hia associates, and when he returned to his claim he was followed' by a couple o: men, hired spies of a man who represented a syndicate of English capitalists, and as a result he was offeree $200,000 for a three-quarter interest in the claim. Mills immediately acceptec the offer, and the mine became known as the Glittering Placer, at one time the richest placer mine in the California diggings- With 8200,000 to his credit, life in a mining camp did not suit Mills, and he returned to San Francisco and entered upon a career that had never before anc never has since been equaled for extravagance. He indulged his passion for gambling to its wildest extreme, anc his losses during the two years that, he •was enjoying an income from the mine are > estimated at between $300,000,000 and §400.000,000. One night, after-a week of dissipation, Mills, was.in Charles 'Maunce's saloon, on. Market street,-.at the bar drinking. ' About midnight the party, consisting of half a dozen -wealthy mine owners, got to shaking dice for small stakes. As they drank the stakes began to increase, until finally they were throwing out the cubes.against corners of 510,000 Mills' luck was remarkably good, anc there was not a turn of the dice that he didn't win. In the party was a member of the Glittering Placer Mining Company by the name of Glaister, who had lost heavily during the night. At last, as the dice turned against him and Mills raked in 820,000 of his money, he be' came desperate and said: "Mills, let's play for a stake that's worth something. You're in luck tonight and will probably win, but I'm going to force a grin out of the devil ii I can. You own a quarter interest in the Glittering Placer mine. I own a quarter interest in the same mine. PU stake my interest against yours on two throws of the dice. I'll either go out ol this place a richer man or a mighty sight poorer one," Mills was in a mood to be favorably impressed by the proposition, and as his luck was good he was confident of doubling his interest in the mine. "It's a go," said he, "and we'll draw cuts to see who has the first throw." The throw fell to' Mills, who~ caught up the box and recklessly threw the five cubes out on the bar. They turned up four aees and a tray Mills sailed, and his friends patted him on the shoulder. As white as a sheet, Glaister picked np the box and with a nervous jerk turned the dice on the tiar. An instant they spun about, and Glaister hung over the whirling cubes breathlessly At last they settled down, and to the astonishment of the spectators five aces were np. Glaister tell to the floor like a dead man when he saw the result, while Mills wandered into a corner and sat down in a daze. A few days later the transfer of stock was made and Mills entered upon a debauch that only ended when his money •was exhausted. All efforts of his friends to put him on his feet again failed; his brain was touched, and for years he has been a harmless and worthless, beggar, •with a mania for throwing dice.—St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Denizens of the Deep Who Imitate Man'» Movements. It may seem absurd to speak of fishes as walking. The flying-fish is well known, but its flight looks mugh like swimming in the air. We naturally think of fishes as living all the. time in water, as being incapable, in fact, of living anywhere else. But-nature maintains no hard and fast lines of distinction between animal life which belongs on the land and that which belongs to the water. If we can believe the accounts of naturalists—and there are no grounds for doubting them—there are fishes that traverse dry land and others that walk on the bottom of the sea. It is reported that Dr. Francis Day, of India, has collected several instances of the migration of fishes by land from one piece of water to another. Layard onee met some perch-like fishes travel-, ing along a hot. and -dusty gravel road at midday. Humboldt saw a species of dorus leaping over the dry ground, supported by. its pectoral- fins; and he was told of. another specimen that had climbed a hillock twenty feet in height A French naturalist published in the "Transactions of the Linnaean Society of Normandy," 1842, an account of his observations on the ambulatory movements of the gurnard at the bottom of the sea. He observed these movements in one of the artificial 'sea-ponds or fishing-traps, surrounded by nets, on the shore of Normandy He saw a score of gurnards close their fins against their sides like. the . wings of a fly in repose, and, without any movement of their tails, walk along the bottom by means of six free rays, three on each pectoral fin, which they placed successively on the ground. They , moved rapidly forward and backward, to the right and left, grop-. ing in.all directions with these rays,-as if in search of small crabs. Their great heads and .bodies seemed to throw hardly any weight on the slender rays, or feet, being suspended in water, and having their weight further diminished by their swimming bladders. When the naturalist moved in the water the fish swam away rapidly to the extremity of the pond; when he stood still they resumed their walking and came between his legs. - . On dissection'the three anterior rays on each pectoral fin are found to be supported each with a strong muscular apparatus to direct its movements, apart from the muscles that are connected with the smaller rays of the pectoral fin.—Youth's Companion. HOW THEY FIGHT. FamouH Tiiillnn FlRhter* Tell the Methoi of Warfare on the riuin's.- Just how the United States army figh the Indians and what hardships they gc through with is a subject little known to tlxe "tender-foot" of the East, thoiigh it has been more widely written abou and discussed than almost any othe: American subject. How the gallant officers and men brave not only the treacherous reds, bu the awful winters of the bleak North west, in the words of army officers win know, can hardly be imagined by tlv readers of the roost graphic articles on Indian, warfare. Fighting the Indians is as differen from fighting civilized soldiers as it i. for a scientific prize-fig>.ter to battle o man who fights in a rough-and-tumbl manner. The Indians usually have the advan tage, especiallj' in winter time, for when the soldiers are huddled around a bi; fire, unable to keep the off side warm the redskin. is crone-lied beside a little pile of blazing wood with his blankc wrapped about himself and the fire leaving a small space at the top throng] which the smoke escapes. ' The Indians fight in all sorts of shape; and modes, and just what sort of troop; is best to use in conquering them is a question depending entirely on the con dition of the country, t ;e tribe on th warpatli and the weather. Another very important matter in fighting Indians is keeping the troop; provisioned, and all sorts of difficultie: are experienced, while the foe is per "fectly contented with a strip .of jerkec beef, which he cooks and eats under lii; blanket when on the march.
