If you believe one of the Eonianys, of
Milwaukee, then the richest man in
North America is rot one of the Van-
derbilts, A,tort or Rockefellers, but a
aimon pure gypsy, whole name it sim-
ple John Smith. He lives in Mexico. Is
80 years old and the ow ner of countless
acres, of myriads of cattle and sleep,
at gold, sliver und onyx mines, of rail-
way and bank stock and of plantations
without number iii the heart of Mexi-
co's richest stales.
Smith's wealth has never been figured
up. He csntiot tell himself. His sole
ambition is to bet-oitie the richest man
In Uie world. And it is this hope that
keeps him vigorous and drives dull care
John Smith lias no settled home. Ill
has a hundred homes on his different
estates, and he moves from one to an-
other. In each he sees what is going on,
and gives his orders. Then lie moves on
again. 'J he Milwaukee gypsy, a solid
business man, who comts home now
with the story of John Smith's amazing
wealth; saw him nt Orizaba. They be-
came great Mentis.
"GOd alone knows how rich I am,"
said Smith, simply, "but I think I am
the richest mnn on the continent."
Smith was plainly dressed in a suit of
English tweed, with hobnail shoes. Hut
his home was a ret elation. Outside it
waa a veritable fortress, with stout
walls of masonry, lqopholed for defense, j
if necessary. A two-story w all inclosed j
it in a space as big us two blocks, and a
great moat surrounded that. There
were the regulation tlrawbridges and1
1 wo massive inner doors barred the
last entrance. Once open it was n won-
derful place, with a courtyard in ths
center, where played perfumed foun-
tains rind where a beautiful garden
grew. '1 he entire inclosure was paved
with brilliantly polished onyx—the
ransom of a king in cost—taken from
one of his mines. Even the stables
where Smith s herd of pel .lersevs were
housed had the same costly flooring of
Servants lounged about, but one ol
the old man's eccentricities was to have
his own children wait upon him at
table. It was an incongruous picture to
see him clattering around on the splen-
did flooring in his coarse suit .and hob-
nails, while a soft light fell on the
strange seme shed by grent candelabra
of solid gold from his mines.
Smith is an Knglish gypsy. He went
to Mexico before there were any rail- j
ways there, and was the first man tc I
haul machinery from the coast to the j
gold mines, which now yield him an in- I
calculable income. He got in on the
ground floor on everything that has
made Mexico so rich to-day.
Hut his life has been a scries of ad-
ventures. r« ice he has been shot down
by Mexican thieves who attacked hia
gold trains, Ife was left for dead each
time. All the gypsies iu Mexico are
wonderfully proud of him and call him
"Our John."-—Milwaukee Cor. St. Louis

"When I waa in the Olsnclio dis-
trict, In Nicaragua, last month," ssid
a visitor who is largely interested
In mining in Central America, "I had
an opportunity of seeing how the lasv
natives tap natures till when they
need some smsll chsnge.
"Near our csmp by the river wss
hut occupied by a typical Hondu-
ranian family, consisting of husband
and wife, grandfather and grand-
mother, and a dozen or so assorted
children. The only one of the crowd
who did anything except rest* and
smoke was the wife. At intervals of
perhaps a week she would sally out
with the family tinpan, erstwhile* used
for cooking, and proceed to an old
placer digging on the river bank.
There she would squat, throw a few
gourds full of dirt Into the pan, fill
it up with water and begin the usual
circular motion of gold washing. She
was very skillful and would keep a
little sheet of dirty water spraying
over the edge like n miniature cata-
ract. When the water was exhaust
ed a few spoonfuls of sand would
be left in tlie boltom of the pan, und,
spreading it out thin, with a bit of
stick, she. would go over It grain by
grain, looking for 'color.' Whenever
she saw a spcck of gold, she moist
ened the stick on her tongue and
picked up the partlelc by adhesion.
Each bit of the precious metal was
stored uway In a «j 11 i 11, plugged with
clay at the epds, and I have known
her to take out as much t>* u quar-
ter of an ounce In the course of one
day. finally her limit was about
two dollars, and when she got that
she stopped. Then the head of the
house would arise languidly and start
for the nearest store 1! miles away.

Editor Kohlsant. of Ihe Chicago
Times-Herald, related a funny story,
when in town recently, of the delight
"Gene" Field took in tensing Kale
Field, and how vexed she would be at
the pranks he was continuously playing
"Hut the story that broke Kate
Field's heart was written by 'tfene'
when she was in Spain writing up ths
Spanish in ISM. It «as one of the most
ingenious snd sensational fakes ever
sprung oil the public," said Mr. Kohl-
"The thing purported to be a special
from a correspondent at Madrid. Hav-
ing first, in delicate fashion, unnotineed
that the duke of Matauo had offered his
band to Mils Field and lia<l been accept-
ed, '(isne' proceeded with the thrilling
episode he had dreamed out:
'Miss Field had one day srrayed
herself brilliantly in a lovely silk cos-
tume in which red snd yellow, Spain's
colors, largely predominated. She was
to attend the bull fight with her lover.
The arrival of Matano and his ducal
equipage, splendid attire and cere-
monious attentions to his fiancee wera
elaborately set forth. Miss Field, in her
gorgeous robes, accompanied the duke
to the Plaza del Torus.
" "Arrived at the plaza, the duke found
the assemblage so large that he would
not deign to mingle with the crowd
that poured iu at the main entrance,
but bribed those in charge of ths arena
to let him puss through with his bride-
"'It was an innovation that took the
people by storm. The haughty cour-
tier escorting tlm lovely girl, the
mingled glitter and gleam of his gilded
trappings and her silk draperies enrap-
tured the great multitude that sat tier
°1,!i<,r ,ile VUM amphitheater.
"'In this imposing manner-the duke
his inamorata and his retinue trmersed
the entire diameter of the arena. The
first bull had not yet been brought in.
and Miss Field and the tluke were, foi
the time beisg, the whole attraction.
" 'Just as the duke made read.* to as
sist his lady over the barricade! a wild
cry rang out from the throng, r. shout
of terror, not of applause. Through
some mistake, a bull had b( en admitted
lo the arena too soon and. glimpsing
Miss f .eld's dress, rushed for her iiv
headlong rage. ,
j '"Miss Field shrieked and faintel
| with terror, but the strong arms. of the
j duke thrust her quickly over the bar-
j rier. "here a hundred hands stretched
, upward to receive her I imp'fig ore, I i:t
her loier had no time to save himself
and ihe next instant the horns of the
bull were buried in his vitals.'
"Well." said Mr. Kohlsaat, "this story
was copied everywhere, and the s.ym«
pathy of the world went out to ihe love-
ly American who had lost her lover in
this tragic manner.

The recruits were for the most part

love of adventure. Therefore when a
