Antiquarians and ' archaeologists of
many a land have gazed upon Newport's
mystery of mysteries and sighed for
some revelation that would confirm
them in this theory or in that- as to its
origin and the uses to which it was put
But they have sighed in vain, although
they have not sighed alone, for during

the afefy of the mysterious structure, to

twenty-four years since attention was

by rJorsemen, while cthere aver
that the structure was the work of
Druids) to be loosened, rendering the

THE OBBAT WEST.
Address at J. Rrld Dwui of ths trrsdostioo essr
cises Thursds- June 2d.J
The Gieat West is that part cf the
United States lying between the Rocky
mountains and the Pacific ocean. lis
area equals nearly one half ot this en
tire couutry. The population is "not
very great at present, but is iucieftbirg
at a rapid ratp, and it will not be many
years until the ratio of inhabitants per
square mile will oe as great as tho most
populous slates of the east. No
country or part of country ever in
creased so rapidly in population and
wealth as the western portion of ths
United States. As early as the admin
istration cf Jefferson an expiating par-
ty was sent to this Coast to make ex
plorations and take obeervations. After
tdung '& look at the- country it S as
tbougbt fit only for the Indian and
grizzley bear. Little did the people in
the east think of the great wealth hid
den in the dense forests and wild jun
gles of "The Great West." So Httle
interest did they manifest that this re
gion was left to take care of itself un
til seveial years afterward when trap
pers and hunters crossed the Rocky
mountaius. Bye and bye people kept
coming here till the great gold excite
ment in California in 1849, when peo
ple flocked to this coast by thousands
in search of that precious metal of
which so much has been found. The
sturdy pioneers who came hither In an
early day were confronted b; ? vjrrible
and dargerous foe in the Indian. Many
were the exciting struggles passed
through before the pioneers were firmly
Then came the great Civil war, dur
the progress of which this coast was to
a great extent neglected. When the
gigantic struggle ceased, renewed inter
est was taken and immigrants came by
thousands. Many people who had
livedin Missouri and neighboring states
during the progress of the war, and
who were afraid of their lives and
property at the close of that contest
formed trains and crossed the trackless
plains and rugged mountains to the
paradise of the world, "The Great
As to climate and productive onali-
tiei "Tho Great West" cannot be ex
celled. Take for instance th rlimsts
during the past winter; there has not
been enough ice for skating, or enough
S40W, with one or two exceptions, to
coyer the ground, while in some of the
Eastern states the snow has been from
two to five feet deep, and the rivers
frozen nearly to the lottom. People
wno come here , from the East
think it strange that we do our plow
ing and sowing in the winter, while
.1 .1 . . .
uterc tne ground is frozen from two
to three feet deep. .
The fruit culture which is yet in its
incipieucy is destined to become one of
the sources of wealth for there is hard
ly any kind of fruit known that this
