Harts Curiosity Found by a Surveyor In • Florldn Cypress Swamp* One of the great difficulties that surveyors encounter ID attempting to follow the lines of old surveys is the disappearance of old landmarks. This may occur from the heedlessness of man or the forces of nature. An example of the latter is shown in the accompanying cut. It shows with sorae degree of accuracy the perfect stereotyping- that nature is capable of executing, though she takes years to .accomplish the task. In 1S34 the United States government- surveyor made surveys of certain lands in Florida, and, as is the custom, noted corners and angles by blasting- the. The inventor of anything- now in the line of arenic performances is a rara avis. Such a variety is Achille I'hilion, a little bustling Frenchman who has invented a new method of climbing- towers and traversing dizzily-suspended cables. Philion was born in the circus profession, lie is permeated with the circus spirit. Ho lilies to do daring- things.. IIo loves to ascend to heights that give other people vertigo and perform feats that make his rivals turn four shades of green with envy. I'hilion bcg-an his career by being carried on his father's shouldei I lin, tho lap and left tho corpse in that i while a madly-dashing circus horse was position. I talked with a gentleman : doing- its best to land them both among from Alpine, who helped to bury tho husband and wife. This horrible incident shows the spirit of, the pangs that infest that country. They live by stealing and robbery. Cattle- men who formerly had cattle in the lower part of tho Big 1 Bend were unable to raise young- stock. The thieves and renegades stole them. Is early all the stock has been moved out of that country, anil the owners are doing 1 their best to pot tho remainder out. I should like to see the state rangers tackle those i renegades. I should also like to see I Dome of those legislators who cannot 1 SCO the use o'f rangers spend a short time in that country. Their minds |'won Id undergo a change.

It mny seem .strange to most Tcxans that there is I such a set of outlaws in their own state. I have drarvn the case mild and colored It not a bit.

The surveyor employed by the Florida Land . & Lumber company of Volusia county, Fla., recently, during the course of an examination of the lands of the company, split up a cypress tree in search of such corner marks. The ax separated tho chip, of which the above is a picture, and disclosed on the truiil'-: of the tree the marks for which he searched. The marks, "R. ."0, T. 14, S, S3,"appear in bas-relief on the concave side of tho slab, or chip, and are as distinct as the original marks were when, tho surveyor made them on the trunk of the tree over sixty years ago. Every feature of tho matrix is distinctly reproduced. The land company's surveyor sent, the following explanatory letter with the chip: "Tin's curiosity is a chip cut off a cypress tree sta.nding 1 near the southwest corner of section 3:3, township 14, range 30. These marks of the section, rang-o and township numbers were cut into the tree by the United States g-ov- ernment surveyor in 183-1, and tho new growth of the tree covered up and grew over the marks, taking- the reverse impression of the marks yet remaining- on the tree. The chip was split oil by me while examining 1 the lands of the Florida Land & Lumber company. Ky- reference to the map you will see that this corner is in the edge of a cypress swamp. Many such marks were found by me, and this is one of the many proofs of the accuracy of my survey." The specimen will be sent by the owners to the' New York Museum of Natural History.

OS THE SPIRAL. blaze of excitement that nothing on earth or in the heavens above ever could, would or should, by any hook or crook, extinguish it. Then the Eiffel tower suggested a project. Philion looked at his globe and then at the tower, and in his mind's eye he saw Eifu.-1's masterpiece encircled by a spiral pathwajgjScd be, Philion, ascending to tho pinnacle, rolling-the sphere under his feet, with all the world looking on wit-h bated breath and expecting every minute to see him turning involuntary backward somersaults toward the ground. . At last Philion had found what he wanted—an idea. Ilo wont to work with tho energy of a Frenchman and the nervousness of an enthusiast. With infinite 2abor and at large expense he 'developed his project, lie could not erect an Eifl'el tower, but he could construct something suggestive of its height. When he got through he had a tower sixty feet high, encircled twice or thrice by a narrow spiral, like the thread of a great screw. Then he began to experiment with the globe upon the spiral. His dexterity aided him. Many times he failed, and many a time he narrowly escaped injury. Eventually he succeeded in rolling the globe to the top of the tower. It was a feat. It set Paris talking. When Philion extended a great cable across the auditorium from the pinnacle of the tower and rolled out over the heads of the audience, the Bonnty for Dairy Product*. The Dairy association of the province of Quebec is asking an annual grant of S220.000 to enable the association to subsidize a line of steamers which would ;arry refrigerators for the shipment of butter, cheese, bacon and hams to Great Britain, which has an annual import of 8117,000,000. T IS PROBABLE Lhat Vict-orion. Sar- dou never sketched a heroine of so many moods and passions as characterize "Gismonda." With almost every turn of the kaleidoscope of her nature new phase is presented—always imperious, self-willed and defiant—just such a sovereign as one might well imagine adorned the court of Athens, at that Medieval period when it was a picturesque -mixture of feudal and Byzantine rule. As the duchess, as the woman, as the distracted mother, as the lover, as the avenger — in all these phases is she marvelously por- rayecl. We first see her as the Duchess of Athens, floating- gracefully upon tlie wave of flattery and adulation: pleased with herself, haughty and condescending. Then as the mothcr.almost crazed with the seeming- loss of her darling child, and offering for his rescue what to her is the greatest of all gifts—herself and her duchy. It is heni tliat she appears proud to a fault, permitting no one to dil'Cer with her nor contradict her opinions. Fon'l of her child. Fancy free, yet longing, looking for a mate. A hero worshiper. How eagerly she seeks to find in her child's deliverer her girlhood's love, Zaccaria.who has been reared in a Moslem court, and how great tin; disappointment when, with bated breath, slie sits clasping her young heir to her heart, asks that his deliverer be brought before her and sees that it is not Zaccarla, but a bleeding, staggering, rough hireling. Instantly she resolves that to keep her vow is Impossible, but how to escape it? The church shall free her as it has others—it must. She, duchess of Athens, not even heaven itself can oppose her will, and so she s°es to a monastic retreat to await the decision of his holiness. Here she is humble in her piety until she learns of the pope's refusal to absolve her from her vow, because it was sworn on the cross, when she is suddenly transformed from a saint Into a demon, uttering passionate curses upon the church, the bishop and the world in general. Next, she is disclosed as a love-tortured being, unbridled In her passion, giving even her honor to save her name and rank when the offer of money, jewels, titles and her prettiest maid of honor are Spurned by this hireling-. He only replies, "No, no, no," but when face to face with him Gismonda surveys the mnn and something whispers to her that although he Is a slave yet he is different to others about her, frank, gentle, unselfish, and, while listening to his past love and worship for her she is deeply moved and when he tells her 'tis only the woman ho wants, and she alone, Gismonda Is quick to see her chance for release from a life with an Inferior, promises to pay his price for her freedom and tells him she will seek him. This is one of the grandest scenes of human passion ever penned by Sar- dou, I think, a masterpiece. Behold Gismonda in a new role! Now she comes as the avenger. Her own life counts as naught in her frenzy to save the hireling she has learned to adore, and, to avenge the would-be 'murderer of her child. She has loved this man and, as dawn Is breaking, leaves his hut, her faithful nurse attending her,, when voices and steps are heard below on the hill. Fearing to be seen she conceals herself and then follows a scene of love, hate, vengeance, and at last murder, one crowding so quickly on the other that • the audience hold their breath In expectation and suspense. Gismonda is now the tiger, and she fiercely springs upon him who has plotted against her child ana lover. Zaccaria falls, and she stands an "avenging angel." Lastly, comes the woman —loving, trusting, sacrificing, humbling- herself to the dust.
