Many had followed him mile* frtuu the

text of disturbing the public peace
Police Prefect Leptne wa* consulted
and advised coniinunlcail*»n with
American Consul General Mason, who
washtHl his hands of the affair. Hough-
ton then, on the advice of an American
lawyer, applied for a permit to clr.'ii-
late as an advertisement freak ami a
tailor was found willing to give him
hand hills to distribute ns a measure
of protection from the police.
Despite the permit the police con-
tinue to arrest him as soon as he ap-
pears in public, alleging thnt disorder-
ly crowds follow him, hooting ami
Houghton takes It philosophically.
He has had the same fate in other
cities, notably Barcelona, In Spain, and
Johannesberg, In South Africa.
He says he lives by the attention
ho excites, sees the world, forms a
pretty gbod opinion of the different
races and countries, and if occasional-
ly he is annoyed by the idiocy of the
authorities he has some good times.
DISCOVERERS OF IRON RANGE.
Others Beside Edgar Brown Are En-
titled to Credit.
Iron wood, Midi.—The reports from
Sault Ste. Marie announcing the death
there of Edgar Brown and crediting
him with the “discovery” of the Ver-
milion and Mesaba iron ranges, in
Minnesota, notwithstanding which he
died penniless, are decidedly erron-
eous in so faj- as they relate to his
alleged part in the opening of those
wonderful ore-bearing districts.
Brown was conducting a boarding
house at Two Harbors at the time the
Duluth and Iron Range road was built
from the place to the Vermilion fields
in consequence of the disco\er> of
ore there, and later he had a contract
for mining ore at what if now the
Duluth mine, near Biwablk, on the
Mesaba. The Merritt brothers and
David T. Adams, George C. Stone,
Martin Pattison, George Stuntz and
R. B. Whiteside were pioneers on the
Minnesota ranges, and it was not until
after their discoveries had led to the
institution of development work that
Brown put in an appearance.
The part played by Brown was
small at best. No property was con-
trolled bv him that but for the “ma-
chinations” of John D. Rockefeller
would have been turned over to “J. J.
Hill and associates” for $7,000,000, as
the Sault Ste. Marie reports would
Neither Rockefeller nor Hill became
interested in mining properties on the
Minnesota ranges until some years
after the discovery of ore.
The Faithful White Mule.
A Georgia man has written the fol-
lowing on an oak slab which marks
a supposed grave in a meadow, says
the Atlanta Constitution:
“This spot is sacred to the memory
of a faithful animal—a white mule,
born ten years before the civil war.
and went through that war with a
rush, from Bull Run to Lee's surren-
der. We ain't certain that the mule
died here, but when last seen the
faithful critter was grazing on this
identical spot and try ing to kick a
lightning flash back to the cloud*.'"
