An elderly maiden's fondness forests stirred up a deal of gossip in North Jlal- sttd su-eet, Chicago, within the 'lost week. That a boua iicle cat, farm could exist and thrive under the very noses of the residents of that -vicinity for i. yea.r and not be discovered is in itself remarkable, but that the fast could escape the eye of the ever-vigilontnand- liiiiy is something even mare remarkable. In North llalstt-d street, near Garlic Id avenue, is a two-story, she<31ike house which has been occupied uatil recently by the elderly spinster in question. 33u-t sho has jus'- moved away, to the relief of nil the neighbors. Ever since she moved into the house the. residents near by have had unpleasant evidence of her absorbing funclness for eats. All last summer they were an un- willi!if>- audience to concerts rendered in choice feline style-n.nd miniated iiKHiiieir by a larpre chorus.

However, tho neighbors were not disturbed by caterwauling from that quarter thereafter, and it. was only after the removal of the tenant, that the real Et.-ue of a.ffyi.rs was discovered. "I. always used to feel sorry for ho-r when she couldn't pny the rent," sa.:-J the wit-fancier's lanckuly, "but when I went in her house ::nd j'ouud tlio state of affnirs there my feelings were not BO compassionate."

HOPE FOR CALIFORNIA LEPERS. J*I>an«"> Bemody UelDg Tested 1)J th« Unfortunate People". There is a renewed interest in lifo unioiig the J4 unfortunate lepers at the jiesthouse, caused by -the arrival :"rom Japan of thv Gato remedy for the evil •with which they are afflicted. Supervisor Benjamin had sent tbe contributions of philanthropic citizens, .-.mounting TO about $200, to IV. Gato in Japan with'a request that he 1'orwara its value in -his remedies. The result was the receipt of five cases of drugs, weighing in all about one ton, says the San Francisco Chronicle. There were boxes of pills, packages of tea and a compound to be used in baths. The pills taste like arsenic, and probably contain that drug ii? " crude Ktate. The tea mush resembled the combination of cinnamon, flagroot and c-ubebs to be found in ornamental receptacles in barrooms and use/i to ornament the breath of their best patrons. The mixture for the bath w«s without eithsr taste or odor. The citv physician prepared and posted upon tbe wall his schedule of treatment, in which he was guided by pamphlets : n Japanese found ir. each case" Of drugs. For Anna, the only woman leper in tbe place, he prescribed one package of mixture in her batt, which she is to take daily; one package of tea daily, and one spoonful of pills -to be taken three times daily. As ft spoon will hold at least 100 of the pel- 'a*s, Anna will b3 required to take no less than 300 pills each clay. These same doses have been, prescribed for all the unfortunate lepers, r.nd the charitable citizens who have placed these remedies within tho reach of i-hese unfortunate people will ivatch with keen interest the result of their philanthropic effort. TO MINE SILVER IN MICHIGAN. Boiton Capitalist! Are to Die tor • Prerlom Legendary Lode. It is reported that a party of eastern capitalists, chiefly from. Boston, have joined in an enterprise to begin mining operations for silver in what is known as Silver mountain, on the west bank of the Sturgeon river, about 12 miles southeast of Baraga. ^Och. A wonderful legend attributes 'to the mountain a. vast hidden mine of pure silver, the secret opening to which has been known only to the Indians and to one or two white men, whose lives ultimately paid the price for the knowledge thcv surreptitiously gained. Outcroppings of the precious metal or; numerous, and two or three times during- tbe last quarter of a century companies have been organized for exploring- purposes. In 3307 Henry Herbert, i» lloughton druggist, was murdered while searching for the mine, ami the Indians tell of many other whites who lost their lives while prospecting for tlie fabulous lode. It is said the Indians used to come into Onlonagon in. the old days with sacks full of pure nil- ver, and now white men will moke a desperate effort to repeat that experience. Just before the last general election in England a candidate for parliament, in tho course of a speech, refrrred to the flogg-ing of children. "Some folks nowadays," he said, "object to beating youngsters at all, but I agree with the "truth conveyed in that saying' of the wise man: 'Spare the rod and spoil the child.' I suppose I r,-as no worse than other boys," be went on to say, "but I.know 1 had some flogging myself, and I believe it did me good. Now. on one. occasion. I" was flogged for telling the truth." "It cured you, sir," said a voice at the back. Cnrfew In Arkama* City. The curfew ordinance is being strictly enforced in Arkansas City.
