Another 1 ioneer Gone.
Another good c;u:i;en has been called to
the rea'ms beyond. On the morning o"
November 2"u, J GG-rt, Geo -ge Edar Aiken,
secrud con of John A:ken. died with
typhoid pneumoi:... at Silveoton, this
county, aed 34 yei'is a 'd S months. Mr.
Aiken was boru at Eugene City, in March
1C47, where he lived un,'l 1850, when his
parents moved to Winchester ne;.r Rose
burg. Here he speut the ne::t fi'teen years
of his life and then he went to Porslced to
learn the photoj,iaph business under Joe
Euckner of vbat c;ty. A'cer work' g rt
this business three yea s, and becomipj
d;ss; t'8oed with it, be enr.ed in tbe
who'esale boot and shoe bus:neas on Front
Stieetof that ci.y, under the lirm name of
J. Kraemer & Co., during which time the
w'ter became acquainted W'th the deceased
having occac'on whi'e he was enaed in
the boot and shoe trade to purchase of tbe
H: m qu: ,e extensively for the ret&'d trade.
The deceased was a plearant agreeable
gentleman and one wbooe d:spos'ion was
likely to make him many warm friends. In
five years he diseogaged himself from the
who'eiale trade, and went to the Sand
witch Isles. While there he was engaged
in raising Angora go ts. He then went
to Cali'omia and wa3 appointed Assistant
Major General on Gen. Irwia's staff, in
which capao'tj he served two years. In
1873 he came to Salem and went into busi
ness with John Fa-nb m under the firm
name of Aikon & Faruham. Here he re
mained until 1882, when he went to Silver
ton where he remained until his death.

The new meteorological observatory
on .he summit of the Ben Nevis in
Scotland is 4406 feet above sea-level,
and is much higher than any other in
the British Isles. America has two
elevated weather stations that of
Pike's Peak being 14. 151 feet high,
and that of Mt. Washington 6286 feet:
while France claims four, ranging from
3989 to 12,199 feet: and Italy has
ihree, of which the highest is 8386,
and the lowest is 7087 feet. Russia
has one as high as 3787 feet; and
Switzerland maintains one at a height
of 7505 fee , and another at 2875 feet.
On the Devonshire coast in Eng
land a sea grass (Porphyra laciniata)
is collected, and made into bread by
cleansing, boiling, chopping, mixing
wiih a sma'l proportion of oat-meal,
and baking. This bread keeps from
four to eight djys. Most of it is sent
to the Welsh town ol Swansea, where
the poorer people are fond of it.
Mr. T. R. C. E. Peek staLes that
there ae ;mpoi-tint diffe-ences in the

been formed to wo: k them commer

springs are so full of infuso ia that in
tiroes of famine the na ives sustain life
on a diet consisting chieilv of mud.

In removing ihe foundation of an
old b' idge borlt by Charlemagne, Ger
man engineers have found the piles so
well preserved, although nearly 1100
years old, that the wood can still be

the posts is practically unimpaired.
It bts been thought that the freez

'The selective power of roots," says
Mr. Robert E'own in a paper upon
tie food of plants, "s in reality the
primary cause why nations spread nat
urally over die world. Thev must
have land to 1 uKivate their crops; and
before artificial methods of renewir.g
ihe fertility of ihe soil were diccovered,
it got 'e::hausted: or 'worn out,' and
the agrico'tural peopla had to seek
newer lands, which as yet lay in ail
their virgin richness."
It is generally supposed that lumi
nous paint was not known until quite
recently, but, according to Dr. M c
gowan, tbe Chinese understood the
art of making such paint at a very
early period. A tradition relates that
the Emperor Tai Tsung, who flourish
ed toward the end of the tenth cen
tury of the Christian era, was presented
with a picture, which at night repre
sented a cow lying down within a
fence, while during the day the cow
browsed outside. It is explained that
the night picture was painted with a
paste made of South Sea pearls mixed
with a substance luminous at night,
while the day picture was produced
by powdered reef-stone.
The latest scientific exploration of
the Yellowstone Park, made during
the past summer by members of the
United States Geological Survey,
shows that it contains 500 geysers and
5000 hot springs. These numbers are
somewhat larger than those obtained
in earlier surveys.

number of fa -flcs in tbe United States was

Much of uJa ioct-ease is in the new terri-to.-'es,
some of which weie sparsely settled
ten years ago, but the fact that Alabama,
F'o -'t a pnd Te::as, hr ve more than doubled
tbe number o" their farms in the t'-re, while
Georg-a, A-!;ansas, South Carolina and
Nor-h oVnahive nearly doubled, and
Mississippi Vi-vnia and Loa;s;ana have
increased f.-om 50 to 60 per cent, shows
that the. e has been a eutt'p-j; up of large
plantations into smaller holdings.
