The story ia vouched for by repu table men work- ng on that stream. A big piece of quartz bowlder, rich n the precious metal, has been so- urccl from an unknown depth directly underneath tho huge fall of water, ind the most wonderful part of the tory is tho manner in which this parkling and precious stone was se- lured from a place almost unapproachable. Running- logs ovor the SOS- foot fall ins been a custom for many years >ast, and there is no prettier sight in he world than to see the giant sticks shoot out into space and thon lead on, into the roaring wnte- ow. During the nhooting o£ the logs one mrticular log went over rejant y and shot straight downward aud wit* suoii ost in the pool bftlow. After it had risen to the surface and iloatod down stream It was seen to have a rock em- jscldod in ono end, which, noon examination, was found to ba quartz rich in gold. The only explanation Is that the oar in tho mad plungo into tho p:jol under the falls came in contact with some ledge of gold with force enough to imbed tho piece found in the firm wood. _ ___ GAVE HIM A COSTLY M1TTZN. be- ON SNAKES. writ •tlio iTo»Mb!6 bAiith of A in Geornltf. it was about the middle ot May. 1893, and Mrs. Richard Smith, the wife ot a fanner, had gone td the field with her husband, Who was replanting- corn that had failed to come up regularly, While they were at work Mrs. Smith wandered oft to ono aide of the field whore there was a thicket of devrberry tine*. While picking the berries she stood upon a pile of rocks that had been picked up from the field and thrown in a heap and the vines bad covered them. When she finally started to step down some of the stones were dislodged and rolled noisily down. ' Instantly the pile swarmed With furious serpents, that hissed and writhed about the frightened woman like so many deinous. The sight was so terrible that Mrs. Smitli stood horror-stricken while the venomous creatures twisted and twined about her limbs and g-llded over her person, Striking- and biting her furiously. At last fear gave way and she screamed for help. The men soon came to her rescue and were nearly overcome by the Bight. The wretched woman was now fighting with all her strength far- life. 8ho grappled tho writhing things and attempted to tear them away. Acting on the direction of her friends, she stttinbled to the apen field, whore the»- could assist her, and in a few minutes seventeen copperheads and four rattlesnakes had been killed. Several of them had followed her from the ston«-pile, hissing and writhing in .auger. As soon as possible Mrs. Smith was taken to her homo and assistance summoned, but there was not the slightest chance of saving her life. Her body became quickly swollen to an enormous extent, and the skin assumed hideous colors. Sho had been bitten a dozen times in the face, and her features became one mass of bloated green and black. Sight fled and speech left her. The pain soon drove her into delirium, and in the most horrible agony life passed away. FLORAL CURIOSITIES. You. Use Coffee?

Tho man became enamored of her several mouths ago, tvad since then he has written her daily bogging 1 her to share her heart and hand with him. His letters were of no avail, however, and several days since she received a scorching letter from him demanding the return of his letters and denouncing her as a flirt She realized that he was playing 1 the "indifferent racket," and while she meant to return the letters as soon as possible, she did not think it a matter of importance. A day or two later she received a second letter, even warmer than the first demanding the return of the letters immediately and laying special stress on- those containing his proposal of man-luff*. That afternoon the young lady sent tha packaga by express. Ordinarily the charges, if no value was placed on it, would not have exceedad fifty cents, but the young lady placed a value of $500 on it, and the rejected lover had to give up 55.80 to obtain his letters. Shells Fall From the Clouds. Among the thousands of oddities in the national museum at Washington t!Vp attract particular attention, especially from one who has spent considerable timo collecting data concerning "curious showers" and queer things which have fallen from the sky: or, more properly, the regions of the clouds. The specimens in question are representatives of a small species of mollusca, and are said to have fallen during a raiustorm at Hartford, Conn., on November j], 1883. They were contributed by J. W. Grey, and are carefully labeled and marked as "Accession 13,711." Violet riant* Thiit Cost Over Sixty Dollar* Gacli. Few people would want to pay 53,000 for thirty-two violet plants. Yet that is what a San Francisco florist sold that m:in7 roots for, and he does not think ha was overpaid either. As may be supposed, the violets aro curiosities. They are the outcome of years of patient hybridizing. Only violets of one gonrler grow on a plant. This renders them capable of beinur experimented with successfully. The big-, bold clonbio violut is the rnalo flower. The domure sing-lo blossom is the fa- male. I'Yotn the double flower the pollen is carefully cut aud placed in the cup of the single blossom. Only ono blossom in a hundred of those artificially treated will produce seed. This seed is thon phintod, and the resultant violet is a?ain hybridized with some other remarkable sp eciineu. Sometimes odd colors aro obtained. Sometimes odd form. A year ag-o a nurseryman produced a violet giant. It was four times larger than tho ordinary flower, and grew on a stem from twelve to fifteen inches long. The plant ou which these remarkable blossoms grew sprang up from one of tho seeds resulting from a long series of hybridizing. It was subdivided and now there are thirty-two plants. These were purchased by a city (Inrist for S',000. An iron-bound contract prevents tho pro pay at or from giving awny, selling or keeping a single rootlet, A nursery will ba started to bs devoted to multiplying tho peculiar plant. None of the plants or blossoms will be sold for two years, by which time the thirty- two roots will have grown to 4,000,000 OBIGINAL NOTICE.
