West Side- Between Logansport and Chill- llow They Are DOB TCP '" '^ IMUK IJurletL The mining- of cedar has been an in- dustrv in the swamps near this place for three-quarters of a century. It is the most unique mining- in the world. Yet very little publicity has ever been given to the subject. Now and then paragraphs may have appeared in the papers, but they apparently attracted very little attention. When one speaks of mining cedar the impression is usually that petrified cedar is meant. It is nothing- of the sort. Apes and ages ago a forest of cedar trees waved its multitudinous branches in the breezes about Cape May. They were superb monarchs of the forest, many of them, and they met their death in some violent manner. They fell prostrate perhaps, through the ageucv of some terrible storm, and perhaps "through some tremendous earthquake. At all events they did not rot away, bnt were laid low in their prime, these stalwart cedars. One theory is that the forest was once of wide extent, and that it stood in a hike or swamp of fresh water. "Then," says Dr. Main-ice Ueasley and Clarence Dening, geologists of standing, "either the half-submerged land on which the forests stood sank lower aud the trees collapsed into thelriko'or the swamp, or else the son burst the barrier wli iuh had separated it from the trees, and. rushing down upon them, wreaked widespread destruction. Possibly the tumult of the inrushing ocean was sufficient to overturn Uie -rigantic trees by the force of the waves ami by the undermining of their roots, but tliuy may have been clone to death in it more gradual way—by the dcstruc-, tion of their life at the roots by -salt water. Down they all went, however, into Uie .soft muck in which their roots were imbedded, sinking deeper by reason of their tremendous weight. The mold of centuries of leaves closed over them, as it they had been babes in tho woods, and the festive plesiosanrus nnd the melancholy pterodactyl knew them no more. After life's fitful fever thev slept well, und if trees have any sense of feeling and subtle inner consciousness, the grim old fellows must have thought it all up.with them. ' But it was not so to be. The resurrection time began away back in the year lSl:.\when some prosaic South .ler.sc-vman, delving the earth, hit upon a eod'ar log and hauled it out to the light of day. -To the surprise of every one it was found to be in a fine state of preservation. It had been successfully protected from decay by the peculiar qualities of the soil about, one ot the strange accidents o£ nature which set scientists agape now and then. Jt did not take long for tho natives to reason that there might be more logs of tho same sort in the vicinity. So they went about plunging an iron rod into the soil." When the iron struck something hard, and after they had satisfied themselves that the substance was wood and not stone, they attacked the earth with their shovels and soon had another cedar laid bare. Practically tho same process is pursued to this day, and thousands of feet of excellent timber have been procured since the mining of cedar began. The trees often lie over one another, and sometimes in heaps, ns dead men lay on some of tho battlefields of the civil war. The minor usually has little trouble in "striking'wood." One or two little jabs into tho soft soil sometimes sntlieos to locate a log. \Vhon the prod strikes a log the miner chips oil' a piece with the sharp point of the tool, which brings the splinter to tho surface when drawn out of the muck. I'.v the appearance of this chip the experienced minor can at onco toll whether the log is sound or'rotten. If it is sound ho at onco falls to work to prod up and dowu its length, until he determines how long it is. This ascertained, ho goes at the mining. Ho works a saw similar to those used in cuitin"- ice, down into tho earth, severs the tree near its roots and also at the top. Tho log is then ready to be raised. A ditch is dug down to the Ion-, the trunk is loosened by the cant hooks, and it rises with tho water to the surface of tho ditch. A very odd thin^ happens to the logs when they rise to the surface—they invariably tarn bottom side up in the water. To haul the log off to the mill is then ft very simple matter.—N. Y. Press.

It has existed in some shape or other all initio and it will continue to exist until the end of all things, for it is caused by poverty; and we have the very highest authority for the belief that the poor will always be. with us. Leaving out the case of Abel, the first strike on record is that of Jacob against his employer and father-in-law Laban, who was the owner of a^tock ranch in the early days. Jacob's grievance is briefly, but succinctly, set forth in the:forty-first verse of the thirty- second chapter of Genesis. It reads: W. L DOUGLAS ^f M -^ • • ^^ MB ><--vi_ic- QP«:T $3 C THE BEST.

"Thin have I boi-.n for twenty years in thy house; I served thee fourlcou years for thy two d::ushtcrs. and s:.x years lor thy cattle; :i.nd Hion hnst charifrtiil ray wiiffes ton times." Then .l:.'.e'ob struck his duplex father- in-law for hi-hur wusfff.. and, not ffct- ting- them, wuuf out. , This was one of the fc-w strikes that was a. success, for Jacob went into business on his own account, and prospered. J.t will be noticed, however, that had it not been for a bad dream that Laban had he would have brought Jacob to terms. In this the'first of all recorded strikes, the Almighty sided with the oppressed. Another notable strike was that ol the Israelites nffuinst the exactions of Pharoah, he of the indurated heart. Moses was the organizer of this strike. When Pharoah called out his militia, to bring- tho strikers to terms, they came to "grief' in a miraculous manner in the Red sea. However, it is only fair to call attention to the fact that Pharaoh's version o£ the trouble has never boon published. There may have been some mitigating circumstances, -or tho subsequent conduct of the children of Israel, in putting to the sworcl those with whom they did not agree, justifies the suspicion that they, themselves, were not entirely devoid of discrepancies. Incidentally, it may be also mentioned that before leaving Egypt Mosos struck an Egyptian so hard that • he never rallied from the effect of the blow. " , ,. , • I never see that Egyptian obelisk m Central park without thinking about the row between Moses and Phnroah, for it was one o£ the obelisks in front o£ the temple of On, at which institution Moses was a student. There it was that he acquired much of that wisdom for which he was justly celebrated. Strange, isn't it, that there should be in 2s*c\v York an obelisk at which the "•rcat law-giver must have gazed every day? But I am digressing. A strike very much to be commend- ed'was that of the ancient Greeks, who, following the advice of their loader, Marco Bozzaris, struck for their altars and their fires. Strikes are very uncertain as to the xiltimate result. They are like runaway horses—more easily prevented than stopped. And, like runaway horses, those engaged in them do not realize when they start out that they themselves may be fished out of the wreck at the finish. It even happens that the capitalists utilize strikes for their own bencfi t. It cie.ty, men who never do honest work uniler any circumstances whatever. It was to a man of this type that a soft- minded friend of mine in Brooklyn gave an order for a dinner. The bill came ir for nine beers and a cigar. The strikers in Brooklyn were also reinforced by foreign anarchists, men who came to this country in search of freedom—from work. In the future, as in the past, this objectionable element will exert an influence for evil in every strike that takes place in a large city. Much more trouble is caused by men who can get work, but won't work, than by those who want to work. Of course, employers, particularly when they are large corporations, are always violently opposed to labor, demonstrations of any kind. In fact, the baseball player is the only one whose right to strike is not only acknowledged but approved by those for whom he works; The only persons who seem to profit by riots and strikes are the newsboys who sell extras. They aroused curiosity at all hours during the Brooklyn riots by shouting; "Ere's yer cxtry. Sploshun and death! Great excitement!" It is not unlikely that more people died from pneumonia contracted by going out into the streets at night, thinlv clad, to secure the latest news, than "were actually killed in the street fights. There arc, more-over, strikers who are not any too fond of steady work. There is a well authenticated case of a Brooklyn striker saying to his wife: "More labor troubles: when will the pool- laboring man in this land have- peace and his honest rights'?" "• \Vhafs the matter now?" asked his wife, "nothing worse. 1 hope." "Vi-s. indeed, there is; I heard a rumor that the IrolU-y bosses were going to give in and then I'd have to fro to work again." . Xo public speaker, no matter haw demonstrative his audience or unpopular his theme, ever went through the ordeal to which the new motormen on tho Brooklyn trolley car, and his guardian angel, a policeman with _a large club with warts on it, arc sti)'. subjected, occasionally, although _ the strike is supposed to be over. \Vhile the strike was at its height rows and fights were, of such common occurrence that if at any time there was no rioting going on large crowds gathered from -curiosity to see what was the matter. However, tho new employes became so 1 accustomed to harsh treatment that they were grateful when no •more dangerous missiles than eggs of last year's vintage, back-number cats and like aromatic testimonials were wafted at them. Numerous motormon and policemen underwent the experience of that orator at the meeting on the St. Stanislaus, poetically described by Bret Hiu-te. He was hit by a large geological specimen, and then II Ho curled up on the door. And tho subsequent proceedings Interested him no more." The strikers and many other citizens of Brooklyn entertained a feeling of GREAT DEJIA>T5 FOB EXTRAS. Bometimes occurs that a manufacturer, •tvho holds more stock than he can carry, makes fortune out of misfortune l>v inducing the employes to g-o out oa a~strike. Labor frequently accommodates capital with the loah of a strike. '- Strikes generally affect the strikers more disastrously than the employers. Men have stomachs, dollars have- not.

A priv:ito of the Seventy-first regiment, who was returning- to Now York on a few hours' leave of absence, was standing on the platform of an elevated station, when he was approached _ by an aged Hibernian, who had overestimated himself. The latter expressed his candid opinion that with "an ould Waok- bhorn" he could make short work of a militiaman with his gun and bayonet. "Where would you hitmc?'' asked the soldier, good naturedly. "On the top avyer cocoannt, be dad!" "Well, stand .back and I'll show you tvllut I'd do." replied the soldier, mak- Inf the "head parry and lunging forward with his bayonet. "That's what I'd do, and you and your old blackthorn ivould be buried in the same coffin." -Did ye/, ivcr sec the loike?" ejaculated the Irishman, satisfied that a nnis- i k-ct and bayonet are not to be trifled i ivith when in the hands of a man who '' knows what to do with them. The great question of the day is: "What shall be done to prevent strikes?" They arc going to occur in the future as thev have in the past, involving 1 untold misery and financial loss. The socialists have a remedy, but it is only popular with those who have no property. It is impracticable for various reasons. They propose to have a general division of property. That might do for a short time, bnt it would not be very long before those who wore not addicted to stale beer and a sedentary life would acquire the property of the others. That would involve another "divide," and would ultimately become monotonous, and create, bad .feeling. There is another serious objection to the general division .plan.

Statistics of suicide show that during the last four years twenty-six thousand persons have in France put an end to their own lives; in Italy, with a population almost equal to that of France, the number of suicides during the same period has not exceeded eight thousand. In seeking the reasons for this great difference the well-known Parisian journalist, M. Henri Fouquicr, explains that in Italy the Roman Catholic religion is still strongly rooted in the population, and that it nets as a deterrent against self-destruction. Formerly, in Italy the body of a suicide was dragged through the streets and then exhibited on a gibbet. Moreover, if Italy is not so rich a country as France, poverty there is less severely •felt and more easy to bear than m France, thanks to the Italian sunshine and blue sky. It is estimated that perhaps a quarter of the population of Naples, for instance, live m a state of poverty which could not be borne by a workman in Paris, or in the towns of the north of France. In addition to this, mendicity is not, in Italy, regarded as cithershameful or humiliating. Therefore, notwithstanding the extreme poverty prevailing in Italy, M. Fou- auier is not astonished that it should lead but few persons to commit suicide. II. Fouquier points out that in Italy self-destruction is in most cases the denouement of a love drama, whereas in France, out of an average of six thousand five hundred suicides a year, there are not more than three hundred that can be classed as suicides of passion. In France money, or rather the lack of it, is the cause of self-destruction. M. Fouquier considers that some ttvo thousand suicides a year may be due to insanity; but he points out that | it is now demonstrated by the statistics j that in France four thousand persons • a year, that is to say, about ten persons a day, hang-, drown or stifle themselves with the fumes of charcoal, or blow out their brains because they are ruined, 'because they are prosecuted by their creditors, because j thev cannot earn enough to procure food and are dying of starvation.— London Standard. —The Sahara, is so named from the Arabic.word signifying "desert."
