"What is a Bohemian restaurantr
The question was asked in my pres-
ence by. a fair young girl whose
knowledge of restaurants was confined
to Delmonico's and tbe Bavarin with
perhaps an occasional dinner at the
Brunswick. Her companion proceed-
ed to explain. He was a clever writer
on a morning paper anu uau uu wr
tag newspaper work for a number of
years. He bad experienced the usual
ups and downs of such a life and al-
though he if now making a handsome
income he clings to his bohemlan
habits and haunts certain restaurants
where he Js sure-of finding some con-
Eenlal friefcd Vritfc whom he can enjoy
iadinnerand bottle of wine. Some-
what amused at this artless question
from a woman not many years young
sr than himself ho proceeded to ex-
plain that such a restaurant would
probably not bo found on Fifth avenuo
ind his favorite haunts were not oven
on Broadway. When sho had fully di-
gested this no further remarked that
ho had nevor mot any of tho Bo-callod
"Four Hundred" at any of theso
places. Bho was curious to know in
what street such delectablo resorts
wore located and what class of people
frequented them. He must have drawn
an attractive picture for sho expressed
a desire to penetrate into ono of them"
a desire so eager that ho was com-
pelled to promise that it should be
And so. a few nights later the bo-
hemlan habitues of a certain little
basement restaurant inan unfashion-
able street downtown were startled
by tho apppcorance of a group of
ten gay men and women who
occupied the largest table and bad
the iolliest time of any group
assembled there. The men wore oven-
intr dress and tho eirls and their
chapcrono wore gay drosses and new
spring bonnets. Of course a littlo
something extra was ordered for the
dinner by tho enterprising nowspapor
man ana it was voted an exceedingly

A Georgia Silver Mine
Many years ago when tho red men
roamed over tho forest of Georgia
thero was in tho piny woods above
Tazo well a silver mine. Tho location
of this mlno was known only to tho
Indians. They worked it for some
time and brought tho silver to Bucna
Vista to sell to a man who was in the
mercantile business but whoso name
has been forgotten. After a time they
ceased to bring it and tho merchant
upon inquiry learned that tho water
bod inundated tho mine in such away
na to prevent further work He fur-
nished them with pumps of some kind
when they again Drought him silver.
After tho Indians left this country for
the vi est tho merchant offered $1000
to any ono who would discover the
mine. After many fruitless attempts
tho search was given up by all except
ono man who discovered the location
of the mine several years afterward
by the dirt work and tne old pieces of
pump. The gentleman from soma
cause or other was unable to pur-
chuso tho property at tho time and it
is owned by an estate tho heirs of
which have moved away and left the
property uncared for nor do they
know anything of there having been
silver found on the place. Tbe loco- '
tion is known to a Tew persons. It '
'o corroborates everything that has
