THE GEOGRAPHY PARTY.
One of the Most Unique and Successful
Events K-rcr Given Here.
The most unique, best attended and
most thoroughly pleasurable social of
the season so far was the "geography"
party at Fraternity hall last evening,
given by the ladies of St. Paul's Guild.
The party furnished ample scope for the
exercise of the wits, and there were both
some good representations and some
good guessers present.. Each person
were something on their person sugges
tive of some locality. The following
were the representations and explana

upon which to record theijj guesses, and
alter plenty ot time given for,delibera
tion, they were gathered up. These
cards were very dainty and . were the
handiwork of Mrs. Eshelman, Misses
Lang. Williams and Story. A" cover of
fancy cardboard enclosed two or three
email sheets of- calendered paper, the
whole neatly tied with- baby ribbon
with pencil attached. The covers were
variously hand-painted in water colors,
or sketched in crayon, no two alike, and
make pretty and artistic souvenirs of
the evening. The higheBt number of
correct guesses - were found on Miss
Rose Michell'a card, and she was award
ed first prize, a globe.
Conundrums were given to sides
chosen, and nearly all of the good ones
were guessed. After the trial of the
wits, the entertainment was varied by
an excellent supper down stairs, and the
party adjourned to Kellar's hall to re
coup their shattered nerves with coffee,
cake and sandwiches. The party was
decidedly a grand success. .
An Oregon Wonder that Surpasses
Mammoth Cave In Kentucky.
There are few people in the United
States who have not heard of Mammoth
cave in Kentucky, bat there are very
many who have never heard of the
greater sub-mountain chamber recently
discovered in JoBephino county, Oregon.
Josephine is a southern county in the
state bordering on California, and while
the mouth of this great cave is in Ore
gon, it is not so certain but the inner
most recesses are in California. . It ex
tends into the Siskiyou range of mount
ains, a rugged dividing line between
Oregon and California.
While no one knows what is under the
hill, yet explorations have- been made
far enough . to disclose the fact that
Mammoth cave, in Kentucky, is "by far
its inferior in every way. ' ' Captain
Smith, its proprietor, a few weeks ago,
gave this statement of the progress made
"We have 00 chambers iu sight and
and an incalcaable number to find be
fore we reacjh the end of the cave. The
chambers lie in' nine different strata
granite, marble, limestone, redstone and
others and almost every one of the
natural apartments contain a marvel of
some kind aside from its stalactites and
stalagmites. In the 'Lord's supper
chamber' there is an almost fac-simile
in the limestone of the famous painting.
'The fairy chamber' is in a strata of
California diamonds. " 'Tornado cham
ber' is visited by a wind storm every
twenty-four hours. In the 'Rain cham
ber' there is a' perpetual drizzle, the
'Steam chamber' is constantly filled
with steam from an undiscovered source.
A coffin resting on stalagmites is the
feature of the 'Death chamber,' and the
'Bridal chamber' is ornamented with a
solid stone four-post bedstead. Then
there is 'Sullivan's chamber,' so called
because there is a mighty ' arm and fist
pendant from the ceiling, and others too
numerous to mention, much less to
describe." " -
Worked Hair a Day.
The people of Manitou were enter
tained the other day, says a corre
spondent of the Denver Republican,
by the spectacle of a man carrying' a
stone around a triangnlar track, letting"
it drop and shouldering' it again at
very turn. The performer was a man
who has a reputation for a disinclina
tion to labor, and the incident was the
outcome of a wail ho was "making'
about the hard times and his inability
to get work. A citizen told him he
would not work if he got a chance, and
offered him fifty cents an hour as long-
as lie would carry the stone. To the
surprise of all he accepted the offer
and held out for five hours. A large
crowd gathered to watch the perform
ance. The Baltimore Episcopal Methodist

The American Farmer,
1729 New York Avenue,
WASHINGTON. D. C.
Thb American Farmer, which is now enter
ing upon its 75th year, is the pioneer farmer's
paper In the country.
It is a large eight-page paper, and contains 65
columns of the choicest agricultural and liter
ary matter, plentifully embellished withfine
Illustrations. It is
NATIONAL IN CHARACTER,
and deals with farming and farmer's interests
on broad, practical lines, it
EMPLOYS THE BEST WRITERS IN
and everything that appears in its columns is of
the highestcharacter. Every department of the
farmers business is discussed in an earnest,
practical way, looking to the greatest profit and
benefit to the farmer and his family.
It appears on the 1st and 15th of each month,
and ia furnisned at the low price of tr
50 CENTS A YEAR . i
in advance. This makes It the cheapest
agricultural paper in the country.
During the coming year there will be an im- ..
mensc number of matters of the most vital in
terest to farmers dealt with by Congress and the
Executive Departments at. Washington. It ia
highly important that the farmers be kept
promptly and fully informed as to what is being
planned and done affecting them at the National
Capital. They should all, therefore, take The
American Farmer, which, being on the ground,
has better facilities than any other papers for
getting this information, and devotes itself to
this duty. They will find in it constantly a -great
amonnt of valuable information that they
can get in no other paper.
