To our right a little stream, which had cut a deep channel for itself in the bosom of the slope, flawed musically on between banks green with tho mahlon-halr. wild nspar'agus, and many beautiful grasses.

There ""f/in tbe n-ooulight with our feet tho edge of the claim, and enough for anything. I pulled out my purse and , its contents; into my hand, rns a half sovereign, two florins, i i,;e We in silver, no coppers, for Lipper practically does not circulate'in '3h Africa, which is one ot the I'iilnes that makes living so dear lucre, ,, a il exactly fourteen and nlno pence.

"But 1 was in no mood for joking, for it is not a merry thing to dig like mad for months and be completely ruined in the process, especially if you happen to halo digging like poison, : m d consequently 1 resented Harry's being spoken ot as a pleasant process, but 1 certainly elo not recommend anybody Who values comfort to try sitting em it—I should run a very good chance ot being hamlspiked before the night was over. " 'If you want to know what it was, Mr. Tom.' I went on with my politest air. although in agony from the nugget underneath, for I bold it always bos! to be polite 1o a man who is so bandy with a handspike, 'my boy and I have bad n r.llgbt difference of opinion, and I was enforcing my view of the inn tier upon him; that's; nil, Mr. Tom.' " 'Yes. Mr. Tom,' put in Harry, beginning to snivel. " 'Well, all I can say is I hat a played-out old claim is a wonriea-ful queer sort of a place to come for to nrglfy nt ten o'clock of night, and what's more, my sweet youth, if ever 1 should 'ave> tin: arglfylng of ycr*—and he. leered unpleasantly at Harry—'yer won't, 'oi- ler in quite such a jolly sort ei' way.

"'Oh, confound it all,' said I, 'It's And now I'll ho paying good-night, for 1 don't like disturbing of a family party. No, 1 ain't I hat sort of mr.n. I ain't. Oood-night to yer,, 'unter Qualm-main—good-night to yer, my argl- fled young one;' and Mr. Tom turned away disappointed and prowled .off elsewhei-c, like a human jackal, to see what, ho could thieve or kill., " 'Thank heaven!' I r,;iid, as 1 slipped oft the lump of gold which had left a dent upon my person that did not, wear out for a week or more. 'Now then, just you slip up, Harry, and see if that. "'There, dad,' said Harry: 'that's what comes of letting your angry passions rise: now we are down to four and nine.' "I made no answer to these; words of wisdom, but scrambled down the steep sides of the claim followed by Harry, to hunt for my little all. Well, we hunted and hunted, but the moonlight is an uncertain thing to look for iuilf sovereign's by, and there was some loose soil about, for the Kafirs had knocked off working at the very spot a couple of hours before. I took n [pick and raked away the clods of earth with it, in the hope of finding .... cola; but all in vain. At last in Ifehcer annoyance I struck the sharp end [of the pick-ax down into the soil, which waa of a very hard nature. To my astonishment it sunk in right up in the. haft,.' '"Why, Harry,' I said, 'this ground must have been disturbed!" "'I don't, think so, father,' he answered, 'but we will soon see,' and I'.n began to shovel out the soil with his hands. 'Oh,' he said, presently, 'it's only some old stones; the pick has siemo down between them, look;' and ho began to pull at one of the stones. " 'I say, dad,' ho said, presently, almost in a whisper, 'it's precious heavy, fool it,' and ho rose and gave me a round brownish lump about the size of a'very large apple, which he was holding In both his hands. 1 took it. curiously anil held it up to the light. It was precious heavy. The moonlight fell upon its rough and dlrt-lncrusted sur. face, and as I looked curious little ihrills of excitement began to pass through me. But T. could not bo sure. " 'Give me your knife, Harry,' 1 said. "He did so, and resting the brown stone on my knee, I scratched at its .surface. Great heavens, it was soft! "Another secret and the secret was nut; we had found a great nugget of pure gold, four pounds of it or more. •It's gold, la,d,'. I said, 'it's gold, or I'm a Dutchman.' "Harry, with his eye's starting out of Ills head, glared down at the long gleaming yellow scratch that I had made upon the virgin metal, and then Iwrst out into yell upon yell of exultation, that went ringing away across the silent claims like the shrieks at somebody being murdered. '"Shut up, shut up!' I said, 'do you want .every thief on the fields after you?" "Scarcely' were the. words out of my mouth when I beard a stealthy foot- stop approaching. I promptly put tho big nugget down and sat on it, as though it had boon an egg, and uncommonly bard it was, and as I did so I saw a loan dark face poked over tho edge of th,o claim and a pair of boady eyes searching us out. iknew iho f^ee, it belonged to a man of very consummate villain has gone.' Harry did so, and reported that he, had vanished toward Pilgrims' Rest, and then wo set to work, and very carefully, but. trembling with excitement, with our hands hollowed out all the space, of ground into which 1 hud struck the pick. Yes. an I thought, there was a regular nest of nuggets, twelve in all, running from tho size of a haste I nut to that of a hen's egg. though ot course the first one was much larger than that. How they all came there nobody can say; it was one of those extraordinary freaks, with stories of \vhif.'li at any rate, all people acquainted with alluvial gold-mining will be familiar. It turned out afterward that, the Yankee who sold me the claim hart in the same way made his pile—a much larger one than ours, by tho way—out of a single, pocket and then worked for six months without, seeing color, after which he gave it up. "\t any rate, there the nuggets were, to the value as it turned out afterward'.-;, of about twelve hundred and fifty pounds, BO that utter nil I took out of that hole four hundred and fifty pounds more than 1 put into it. Wo got them all out and wrapped thorn up in a handkerchief, and then fearing to carry the water had hollowed out some of the huge slabs in its path into great troughs and cups, and these we used for bathing-places. No ttoman lady, with he>r baths of porphyry or alabaster, could have had a more* delicious spot, to lave herself than we 1 had within fifty yards of our skerm or rough iii- ciosuro of mimosa thorn that we had dragged together round the cart to protect, us from the attacks of lions, of which there were several about, as 1 knew from spoor, though wo bad neither heard nor seen them. "It was a little nook where the eddy of the stream had washed away a mass of soil, and on the edge of it there grow a most beautiful old mlniosa thorn. Beneath the thorn was a large nmooth slab of granite fringed all with maiden-hnir, and other ferns, that •.duped gently down to a pool of the clearest sparkling water, which lay in a bowl of granite about ton feet wide by live deep in the center. Here to llihs slab we went every morning to bathe, und that delightful bath is r.inong the most pleasant of my hunt- inn' reminiscences, as It is also for rea- itons that will presently appear, among the most painful. "It was 11 lovely night, and Harry and I sat there to the windward of the fire, at. which the two Kafirs were busily employed in cooking some 1m- pala steaks off a buck which Harry, to his great joy, had shot that morning, and were as perfectly contented with ourselves and the world at large n« twei people could possibly be.

He says tbo,t it is tbtj cuii- tom ot these pros, to charge up theh- expenses even to shaves and shines.

"Slowly the night wore away, loi with the'fear of Handspike Tom baton; mv eyes I did not,'care to go to sleep, and at last the dawn came, blushing like a bride, down the somber ways of night I got up and watched its perfect Prowth, till it opened like a vast coles- tial flower upon the eastern sky, and, the sunbeams began to spring in splendor from mountain-top to mountaintop I watched it, and an I did so it flashed upon me with H complete conviction that 1 had not. felt before, tba I had had enough gold-mining to last motheroBtof my natural life, and 1 then arid there made up my mind to clew out of Pilgrims' West and go and shoot hufialo tenvnrel Delago Bay. I hen I turned, took the pick and .shovel, and although it was a Sunday morning, woke up Harry and sat to work to we if there were any more nuggets handy. As I expected, there were none. What had got bad lain together in u little filled with soil that felt quite night wan beautiful, and it would •require somebody with more words on the; tip of hbi tongue than I have to describe the chastened majesty of tbe moonlit wilds. Away forever and for- over, away to the mysterious north, rolled tho great bush ocean over which the silence hung like a heavy cloud. There beneath us a mile or more to the right rolled the wild OHphant river, and mirror-like Hashed back tho noon, whose silver spears were shivered on its breast, and then tossed in twisted lines of light far and wide about the mountains and the plain. Down upon its banks grew great timber-trees that through tho stilly silence pointed solemnly to heaven, and the beauty of the night lay upon them like a. dream. Everywhere was silence— silence iu the starred depths, silence in the fair bosom of the sleeping earth. Now, if ever, great thought!- might rise r.i a man's mind, and for a space he might, lose bis littleness in tbe sense that he partook ot the pure Immensity about him. Almost, might, he hear the echoes of angelic voices, as the spirits poised on bent and rushing pinions swept onwards from universe to universe; and distinguished tbo white lingers of the wind playing in the tresses of the trees. "Hark! what was that? "From far away down the river there comes a mighty rolling sound, lowing week a suit of clothes, §23: the next week towels, if", ,nnd so on. "This* particular rider made the mistake, of allowing his trainer" (so the. story goes), "to be seen by tbe» firm's representative.') always wearing the same suit ot clothes. At the end of tho season the firm discharged the rider, at, the same time deducting $250 from Ills salary for expense over-charges. It is related of another rider that be used to buy $5 worth of towela each week—according to his expense account. These practices have done much to hurt the racing business. In several instances | bicycle manufacturers have stopped supporting racing teams owing to their methods. It is said that one firm was represented on the circuit by three riders of considerable prominence, and they cost $17,000 in a single, semton. To offset the dishonest ones there are many honest riders. AH a rule they are remembered by the houses they represent, and when their racing days am over they get salaried places in tbo factories or offices. There, is a, large •.lumber of professional riders now looking for engagements. Others are satisfied to get their expenses for riding certain wheels, and still others are satisfied with small salaries. The firms are beginning to cut down the salaries of their men." any line sib lottft as their introduction Is 'e-otitrolled by improprrly rjurillfied native itnportPfK, who arc willing enough to bill an order, and cflnnHv unwilling to do the work of Initiating trodc* and creating a demand for thorn.

After Italy und Provence there is no country where Rome ban left more monuments in every state of preservation of decay than in Tunis, Kays tho London Daily News. The largest, Roman circus after the Coliseum is El-Hjcm, Aries ranking next and NJtnos coming fourth. At a recent sitting of the Academy of Inscriptions in Paris M. HoisIer, our correspondent says, gave an account ot n remarkable Roman discovery at Sufiu, in Tunis, The French, who, unlike the English in Egypt, have settled down in Tunis for good, have got a camp at that seaport which is "a mine of mosaics," where fresh discoveries are made every year. The other day a party of soldiers digging foundations unearthed n mosaic with three human figures in a perfect state of preservation, covered with only a few inches of soil. It is only three and one-half foot square, but the subject, "Virgil Writing the Aeneid," will interest all. There is a front v}ew of the poet loosely draped in th.e folds oi',a white toga with u bine fringe,-.sitting with bis fcet-jto,B.a.ndaJB..r.ostUj&.p.n a step, He holds on his knees a papyrus roll on which Is written in cursive letters one of tho verses of his poem.

Concerning; Kldlajr by Novices. Springtime advice for novices is as follows: "The advice of a competent instructor is an excellent thing to start, in on, but the new rider usually re- coives advice from relatives and friends who cycle, and often to tbo point ot bewilderment. Bicycling well is very much like swimming well. You can find out all about it yourself, but others can advance very little useful information. The main p'oluta of controlling the' must learn for yourself. Others may perhaps be able to suggest things which will improve your style. Take -a few lessons from a good teacher, indoors H' possible, and then go it strictly alono on tho road until you get the general hang of it. Afterward you can follow tbo advice ot friends, who can make a bettor note ot your appearance on tho wheel tbun you can yourself. . You may bo able to ride pretty well, and yet. present n slab- nlded, knock-kneed and gsneriill.v twisted appearance to the world. The advice of judicious friends may be gratefully accepted in regard to sued tilings, but the balancing and steer int, ean be learned only by personal effort.' to coma over, concerning which tho Frenchman seemed to have some doubt.

In every tird company there will bo a man who lhdroughl> unelerstaudn the method ot giving first aldt to ho injured.

It has been a problem tor many year?, just how to find a method fO?> caring fen- injured firemen at eonfltt-' grattonu without tho expense of having a. regular physician attached to each company.

There wltt also be eight corrosive sublimate gau*.a bandages of various lengths and sizes, two (IralnnRH.pans. ulx tourniqueUi foe artcrlest in.arms and legs, ono box of medicated absorbent cotton, one can of lil-carbonate of soda to be sprinkled over tho ma-face o" burnt), one bottle C^ sulphate of morphine -tablets, one- eighth grain each, to be given for pain; one bottle tincture ot bemoln; also one bottle corrosive 1 - sublimate tablets, oflo tablet to .a quart of water, making A one-tenth ot 1 per cent solution, to bu used in dressing; onei roll »f surgeon's strapping plaster, scissors, uafoty pint), large and small, and one bottlo of aromatic spirits of ammonia, to be- used na n stimulant and to bo given in place of brandy. The emergency kit will also contain sponges and either nc- cossorleH. and all the; various articles will be packed in cotton to guard against breakage.

It would bo quite possible to instruct every member of.a paid firo department, •from the chief engineer to the hoae boy, so that be should be able to render that immediate aid which in a crisis is indispensable. But while this general knowledge is to be impressed. It, is further iniggeated to have one" member of each company assigned:-to ' the emergency kit, just as there are pipe men ami hose men. It shall bo this man's duty to see that the kit is always in perfect order, that no supplies are lacking, and to provide in, every way against there being a hitch when anything from the kit is needed., In speaking of his plan tho advocato said:- "I would advise that the engino and ladder company might have n regular course of lectures, given in quarters, by local physicians and .surgeons, with examinations. Tho firemen wlu> pass tho necessary examination shall receive diplomas and a badge ot the Ited Cross Order of American Firemen. Nobody will'deny the fact that' the average fireman is always ready to risk his life to save that of a friend or a stranger. His own life Is in danger from tho first stroke of the gong in the engine house until tho apparatus IB housed after its return from t'he fire. No one knows what minute he will want medical aid, Yot ignorance of tho first principles of surgery may pve- t-. *.' i vent his comrades from helping him in t his utmost neod.
