Also CoJte to Drive, BIOBt BAYS AT ASBURY, (Concluded fro» first t>age.) York, The city disappoints at first and then grows. It is old-fashioned and slow.* It shows no interest in your presence and no desire for your money. You can come of not, buy of not. The mock auction store eagerness of the boom cities of the west *s not there. Either because one knows that there are no mortgages on its enterprise, of feels it, he is impressed with the fact that he Is in. tt great, cosmopolitan, substantial and indifferent center lowatds which business comes Irresista* bly and not thorough advertising. It has big buildings and little ones in their shadow, At the head of that commercial whirlpool, Wall street, stands old Trinity church, whose Solemn vaulted aisles seem to shed a benediction, and whose ancient cemetery with its decaying tombstones of a long past generation, seems to utter the exclamation of the preacher to the busy throng of Broadway "vanity, vanity." The address of the hack driver in the more modern Greenwood cemetery bears the same mournful refrain to the members of the " learned" professions and is calculated to make them doubtful about grave yard fame. After having its attention called to the tombs of soda water inventors, bakers, piano makers, brewers, and tobacco men for an hour our party finally asked if there was a noted monument to any literary or professional man in the 640 acres dedicated to the dead. The driver finally hunted out the bust of Greeley, and this was erected only through the generous ontributions of brother printers. # * # Whatever else may be missed in New York a walk through Mulberry street should not be. This is the Italian quarter. In the early evening it presents a sight not surpassed by China;own in San Francisco. Anyone who las doubts about the,census holding its own can have them dissipated here. hildren are so thick that not to walk on them is one of the difficulties of the visit. Men, women, children, dogs, carts, and trinket stands fill the street till it looks like the entrance to a cir- us side show, and from every window on either side the heads of the interm- nable population give promise of the thousands that might be seen. But withal they seem peaceable, domestic, and happy. H. C. Bunner in one of his short stories pictures Mulberry Send, and suggests the secret of good order. It Is not the occasional policeman, " but the spirit of good-natured, happy, all-expectant industry that is the salvation of the 'poor, whose feet are on the road that may lead to prosperity if they will but keep to it." rime represents " the awful difference Det ween the hopeful and hopeless poor," * ;-••'.•** • • •. From New .York the delegates, scattered, the one from Algona returning by the New York Central to Niagara Falls. Not very old men recall the time when the Central trains used to stop at every farm to take on or let off passengers, that being part of the con- sideration'for the right-of-way. Now .t has four tracks and its fast trains stop only four times in the state. The !entral is fortunate in having Chauncy VI, Depevv as general director, he being .he only man who has successfully combined a railroad presidency with an unquestioned reputation as a granger. 3Ce is a great orator, an unrivalled story teller, and a man whose experience in life has led to see justice in the laims of all classes and to treat courteously and fairly the employes of :iis corporation. . , *** At Amsterdam, the great center for <nitting and carpet weaving, half the mills are doing nothing and but few are running on full time. An immense carpet factory, completed just as there- >ublican administration went out, stands without a piece of machinery in t, the collapse catching it before that joint was reached. Saratoga Springs s about 40 miles from Amsterdam and this is one of the old-time resorts which .oses nothing of its popularity. At Fair-field, in the central part of the state, hay making was in progress, and ;he crop is too big for the barns. The spring was very wet, damaging oats but making timothy and clover that would astonish Iowa this year. The New York farmer is occasionally commiserated, but this is hie year.. Milk aver* ages 80 cents, and every four acres supports a cow well during a year. Buffalo, at the west end of the road, is he boom city of the east, When the machinery for carrying electricity from Niagara Falls is iu, as it will be this !all, Buffalo will begin to make Chicago look o\it for its laurels.

The Pioneer Press,- always abreast of the times, has reduced its subscription rates just one-half. The new rate on the daily and Sunday editions is but 60 cents per month, $5 per annum, in 1 advance; for the daily, without Sunday, 40 cents per month, $4 per annum, in advance; Sunday only, $1.50 per annum, in advance, 60 cents for three months. The Pioneer Press is now the cheapest metropolitan newspaper in the country.

Mrs. Phoebe Thomas of Junction City, 111., was told by her doctors she had consumption and that there was no hope for her, but two bottles of Dr. King's New Discovery completely cured her and she says it saved her life. Thos. Eggers, 189 Florida street, San Francisco, suffered from a Ireadful cold, approaching consumption; iried without result everything else, then bougat one bottle Dr. King's New Discov sry and in two weeks was cured.

Mr. Holman is 71 years of age, entered the house in 1859 and, with the exception of three terms, six years, he has been In congress ever since. Another member of the house entered that body earlier than Mr. Holman, but served only four years, and after an absence of thirty- two years returned to the house last year. The latter is General Daniel E. Sickles, who first entered the house in 1857. The very oldest man in the congress, "father of congress" in years, in original entry, and in length of continuous service, is Justin S. Morrill, who came to the house in 1855, served there until 1867, when he was promoted to the senate, and has there remained ever since. He has the distinction of being both the father of the congress and the father of the senate. • GOLD UNDER A CATARACT. A. Loff Jflunc-nff Into th» W itor Dig. covers a Aline of YVenltb, Snoqualmie Falls, in Washington, has developed an attraction not down OD the guide books. The stor y is vouched for by reputable men working on that stream. A big piece of quartz bowlder, rich in the precious metal, has been secured from an unknown depth directly underneath the huge fall of water, and the most wonderful part of the story is the manner in which this sparkling and precious stone was secured from a place almost unapproachable. Running logs over the 265-foot fall has been a custom for many years past, and there is no prettier sight in the world than to see the giant sticks shoot out into space and then drop, head on, into the roaring wate: ba- low. During the shooting of the logs one particular log went over recant y and shot straight downward and was soon lost in the pool below. After it had risen to the surface and floated down stream it was seen to have a rock embedded in one end, which, upon examination, was found to be quartz rich in gold. The only explanation is that the log in the mad plunge Jnto tha pool under the falls came in contact with some ledge of gold with force enough to imbed the piece found in tho firm wood. GAVE HIM A COSTLY MITTEN. A. Kentucky Belle Made a Hojented Suitor Pay for His Letters. Not satisfied with having given him the mitten in the most approved style, a handsome Louisville girl who is noted for her quickness and wit recently played a practical but costly joke on an over ambitious lover, who lives in one of the smaller towns in that state. The man became enamored of her several months ago, and since then he has written her daily begging her to share her heart and hand with him. His letters were of no avail, however, and several days since sha received a scorching letter from him demanding the return of his letters and denouncing her as a flirt. She realized that he was playing 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 tha return of the letters immediately and laying special stress on those containing his proposal of marriage. That afternoon the young lady sent the package by express. Ordinarily the charges, if no value was placed on it, would not have exceeded fifty cents, but the young lady placed a value of $500 on it, and the rejected lover had to give up $5. 80 to obtain his letters.
