Own Gold Mines bat Lack Money.
prospecting for gold has received a
great impetus through recent events
which have thrown so many men out of
employment. Not only have silver min-
ers and smelter men gone to prospecting,
but mechanics and laborers who have
had mining experience in former years
now find their knowledge of minerals of
utility in the change of occupation forced
upon them by the closing down of mills
and factories. Whatever else may be
the result of the additional labor devoted
to gold prospecting, it is sure to be the
means of the discovery of valuable gold
leads and the enrichment of individual

to have been thoroughly explored are

corporated the bicyclist, and when they
turn out and ride by the side of the corps
they look well. As the colonel, usually
the only mounted man, cannot very well
be dispatched with a message from a
corporal, a bicyclist volunteer com6s in

Trains Racing Through the Fine Woods.
Passengers to Atlantic City on the 4
o'clock trains of the Reading and Penn-
sylvania railroads have enjoyed many a
race this summer between the two rivals.
The Reading has the shorter lino acrosi
New Jersey, but the
advantage of a much quicker ferry trip,
and so the two roads stand pretty much
on an equality. Tho tracks come to-
gether near Winslow Junction and from
that point run side by side for almost tho
entire 80 miles to Atlantic City. Both
trains are due at Atlantic City at 5:1.">
and go rushing across the Jersey pines
at a rate that delights the passengers'
hearts. The engineers, it is said, have
been quietly given the tip that it is not
absolutely necessary to wait until 5:15
before reaching»the Atlantic City station,
and so it has come to pass after some
particularly lively races that the trains
have landed their passengers in the city
by the sea three, four and even five
minutes ahead of time.—Philadelphia
The Baseball Season.
The remarkable interest in baseball
this year is causing universal comment.
In spite of the fact that the financial
condition of the country is in a deplor-
able state, the attendance at the ball
games increases rather than diminishes.
It may be that our weary merchants,
politicians, doctors, lawyers, schoolboys
and clerks rush to the games to get
away from business, mental or school
worry. As a money broker said yester-
day, the only places where cash seems
plentiful are at the ball games and the
dry goods stores. Most of the clubs in
the major and minor leagues will make
money this year, and the chances are
that there will be no changes in the cir-
cuit next season. So it looks as if the
12 club league had come to stay for an-
other year at least.—New York Tribune
