gold product of the United States to lie
$33,000,000, about the average of recent
years. The product of silver waa 58,
000,000 ounces, of the commercial value
of .V),7M,000. a falling off of 330.000
ounce from the preceding year. The

fine ounces, costing 47,S94,'.'91 an aver

The true site of the Garden of Kden
haa been the subject of almost endless
controversy and conjecture. The three
continents of the old world have beun
gone over by the theologians and anti
quarians in a vain search for it most
prolwhle location. Kroui China to the
Canary island and from the Mountain
of the Moon to the coast of the Ilattic,
each country haa been the subject of
careful search. Kvery spot in K.uroe,

the place designuted in the first chapter
of Genesis has been examined, and yet,
says the Philadelphia press, no plaev litis
been found that corresponds even in
the slightest degree with the scriptural
account of the first abode of the projec
tors of the human race. One of the
most ancient opinions, that given by
Joseiihus, is that It was the country
which lie between the Ganges and the
Nile. This view imagines Kden as being
a very widely extended country, embrac

A. B. Ford, an independent salmon
canner of Ye bay, Alaska, view with
complacency the recent movement on
the part of the Alaskan canner to form
a permanent oiganixation. "There are
a few of ns yet," he said recently to an
Oregonian reporter, "who stand upon
an independent basis, aud we shall per
hap do better now than before tbi
trust was formed. I think the trust is
a good thing, inasmuch as it regulate
the season's pack and keeps the market
fmm becoming ovei a locked. The capi
tal of the new concern is said to be
$500,000. The trust of last year was
simply an experiment, but it proved to
be such a success that now they have all
gone into a permanent organization.
Yon see, the cost of packing will Isb
greatly reduced because supplies can be
purchased in such large quantities that
th discount will b heavy. Then a
large number of superintendent, pm.
cesser, bookkeeper, etc., ran be dune
away with. Probably the biggeot a
ing will be in the shutting down of ex
pensive canneries and increasing the
output of those that can lie run cheaper.
The Alaskan trust will fix the prices of
their salmon, and really control the
market, although their fish is inferior to
the Columbia river product."
