This, in a majority of cases, proves a loss, and, In consequence, he docs not sv.c'ceed as the energy he displays would seem to warrant Another man, while he may not make a great display of his energies at-the start, will go to work more systematic, and will have better opportunities to economize, and In tnaby cases to manage better than when he Attempts to rush matters,.

" A Petrified Salmon. Henry Benson, of ITayden Hill, Lasscn conhty, Cat., has in his possession a specimen of petrified salmon. The former fleshy part resembles crystallze<l and va- rlegWed quartz, retaining In part the yellowish color ol the salmon, and what was forrherly the'flkln of the fish Is now a sort of *orcelaln or white flint. The entire specimen is of tho very hardest quarts In texture. It was found on a hillside at aboot 1,500 feet altitude from the floor of Big [Valley, and evidently petrified at that poll*. This would Indicate that salmon Inhabited the ancient rivers, the beds of which, now.form the stratas of the Sierra Nevfedtt mountains, and In which ancient channels lie the rich deposits of Califor- nla'i gold. . These ancient river beds, as Is well known, are found at various height. 1 ) above the teea level, and In some places but a few hundred feet below the crest of the range, nnd perhaps hundreds of feet be- nentb thosolM formation of mother earth, and running entirely independent of any present surface formation. To determine with) certainty that salmon inhabited these ancient rivers would be an Interest- Ing fact, an it would fix at a much later date : than Is, now generally supposed the geolociial period when, by mighty up- heavpl, these old river courses jvero changed and obliterated from the face of the earth.—Sacramento Record-Union. The stupid husband of tho talented actress must not be forgotten. He, of all such, husbands, is the most difficult to manage. One-half of his wife's life is occupied In correcting the silly blunders he hourly perpetrates. Her lord and master will |n one day do more Injury to her and to her interests than she can rectify In months.- The saddest phase of this matrimonial alliance is that 'his officious errors arise from genuine and Intense admiration of her talents, and from inordinate pride in belonging, even as a husband, to her retinue. It Is vain for her to beg him to moderate his zeal, which urges him to Interfere with her business, but, as she really loves' him, her solicitation* are feebly uttered, and her forgiveness for his errorete easily obtained. He is full of promises, so full, Indeed, that he has no room for performance o f them, BO as fast as one fault Is condoned another is committed, and thus the story of error and forgiveness goes on to the end. When old age comes upon this pair it flnds them full of quiet respect and decent love for each other, but with a very moderate fortune whereon to live to the close of life New York Star.

In other words, James Berry Is, according to Ms own declaration, "a Conservnti ve through and through," In that regard differing from a brother of his (of whom more anon who Is, or rather was, "a Liberal, and In favor of abolishing capital punishment.' Barry, we gather, stands number fourteen in the list of a family of twenty-one chll dren. It will hardly surprise any one to learn that his friends did not approve of his choice .of a profession, but all right feeling -persona will be shocked to hear of the disastrous Indirect effects of James Berry's abnormal inclinations upon his afflicted relatives. Questioned on this delicate subject, he replied, mournfully: "It killed my mother and brother." Then, with an apparently morbid pleasure In 'harrowing details, he went on to say: "Vhen Marwood died I was appointed In his place, and dlrccfly my mother knew of it she was taken ill. My father's solicitor then wrote the , Homn office Informing the authorities of this. The result was that I gave up the position, and Binns got the appointment. My mother died soon afterward, and then, when I saw the way in which Blnns was going on, I came to the xmcluslou that ho would not hold the place long, and I again wrote to the Home office, stating that my mother was dead, and that there was nothing now to prevent my accommodating them if my assistance should bo required. Soon after that J was engaged to hang two men at Edinburgh, and I have carried out newly all the executions since then." Tho sequel of the tragic tale Is yet to tell. "My brother," -he went on to say, "had married a girl with plenty of money, and his pride received a blow on my appointment. That was the cause of his death." This, it appears, was the brother who was "a Liberal" and "in favor of abolishing capital punishment.,!! it must be confessed that this unfortunate member of the Berry family could hardly have given a more emphatic proof of his dislike of the hangman's office. It is to be hoped that we have here reached the final incident in this ghastly tale, though James Berry's final observation, "Altogether I have burled my mother, two brothers and two aunts within tbe last three years," has a painfully ominous sound.— ^London News.
