on Tuget sound this winter is denied
authoriintively by many dealers. A man
interested in the ltosiyn mines states
that, w hile there has bem a scarcity of

nted's of the State, or 3,00,1 tons a day if
called upon. The Franklyn mine had
been shut down recently because of the
large amount of coal on hand. While
tome of tbe mines are not getting out
much, new claims are being opemd and
the supply is almost inexhaustible.

The History of One.
'Five or Bix years ago that woman
was a great belle, "said my neighbor, as
tlie door closed on tho shocking example
"She came here for the first time the
morning after tho great balL She
looked tired, and I didn't wonder. My
brother, who was out late the night be
fore, told me that he heard a gentleman
call her by namo as ho handed her into a
carriage after a littlo supper nt the close
of an evening at tho theatre. It was
midnight and alio was juBt going home
to dress for the ball. You can guess the
pace sho was keeping. Slio bought noth
in j but a little violet powder to whiten
the great dark circles under her eyes.
Nest season she was a regular customer
for rose leaf wafers of one kind and an
other to rub a little bloom on her cheeks.
After that it was paint, and now look nt
her. Sometimes her face breaks out in
blotches and she has terrible work to
cure them." Eliza Putnam Heaton.
Hnlned by the Mask Hats.
Every old East Indian officer knows
that when a musk rat runs over the bot
tles in your cellar you might as well
throw the contents away. They will
nave the smell and the taste of-tlio musk,
and nothing that you can do will cure it.
I know it is a story that you won't be
lieve, because you haven't seen it your
self, but you can cork a bottle of alo,
say, as securely as yoa like, seal it and
put it away, and if tho rats get a chance
to play alwut it you will find it wholly
undriiikablo. I don't know how the
smell gets into the liquor, but thoro it is.
I Lave seen bottles washed and scrubbed
and rubbed with sand, then opened and
found to be ruined. There is no animal
that the old Bchool Indian will kill with
such a thorough consciousness of doing a
good work as the rat. Chicago News.

sign of death; but the expeditiop found
so many skeletons buried within the
larger buildings mentioned, just beneath
the floor, that it appears to have been
the custom to bury chiefs and priests.
A food vessel and highly decorated water
jar were buried with tho corpse, and
sometimes arrow and sjiear heads. In
one grave a large stone knife and tur
quois ornaments were found. Tools and
weapons are generally of stone, and then
are a few copjier ornaments, shell earr
ings, inlaid with turquois, and other
decorations common to seuii-savajp
tribes. The pottery is of many colon
and carries a fine glaze. They bad
smelting furnaces in the mountains, and
appear to have stood upon much the

to whom Mr. Curbing is guide, philoso

The opening up of these old canals a
the first step to cause the deserta now
covered with mesquite to support a fair
population. With modern appliances it
is not impossible that tlie Colorado, rush
ing along the bottom of an enormout
cleft in the earth, down which Maj.
Powell made his venturesome trip jean
ago, should spread its fertilizing waton
over portions of the Yuma and Moliate
deserts instead of losing them in the salt
waves of the Gulf. The climate ia ad
verse to irrigation in some respects, be
cause the more you separate the stream
and rills the more you expose the water
body to surface eraporntion. bi land
like Arizona and New Mexico the Persian
system of underground streams, broken
at intervals by wells, ought to b
tried. A system of covered canals
would be the best in a climate like
that of New Mexico, for the evapora
tion upward would be at a minimum.
Whether this country will ever be re
claimed to do tho work it can under a
thorough system of irrigation is a qu
tion. Perhaps it were best left to indi
vidual or municipal, to corporate or
state enterprise. National scliemei
the kind areoo prolific of jobbery and
corruption. It is u matter, however,
