Condition or the President.
The President continues steadily
improving. Settled quietness pre
vails at the White house. The
president has not suffered much
from heat since Thursday. Ex
periments are still being made
with a refrigerating apparatus in
anticipation of the return of hot
weather, which is predicted by
Gen. ITazeii. lie is inspired with
the firm belief that he will live,
and to those who know him best
tliis fact is more encouraging than
dl favorable reports of physicians.
Mrs. S. A. Dnniw.nys letters to
the New Northwest are certainly
very fine productions, descriptive
of the regions traversed. Of Spo
kan and vicinity the lady says:
" On the edge of u broad, gravelly
prairie, adorned at intervals by
scattering trees, sits the embryo
city of Spokan, its site and sur
roundings resembling those of
Salem, Oregon, and its atmosphere
reminding us of Ml. Idaho or Mos
cow. We confess a little disap
pointment on viewing the envi
rons of the town; not that the
scenery is less magnificent than we
had been led to expect, but be
cause we have traveled so many
leagues of fertile land within the
past six weeks that the barren soil
looks doubly barren lx-cau&c of
the contrast. We expected a
larger town, too, but can hardly
toll why, unless it had been over
advertised by traveling or resi
dent enthusiasts, who had drawn
upon their imaginations for their
facts. The scenery in the suburbs'
or Spokan is exceedingly pictur
esque. Gray rock bubble up into
massive mounds, moss grown and
flower-bordered. (brassy ridges
roll away toward the mountains,
tree-capped and water-fed, and
the monotone of the falls rises
ceaselessly upon the ear like the
rolling breakers on the distant
weather beach. Niagara falls do not
equal the falls of Spokan in beauty,
and they scarcely more than rival
them in grandeur. Niagara river
is larger than the Spokan, and the
torrents fall from a really greater
highr, though the difference is not
apparent. Spokan falls have all the
beauty of Ladore and the majesty
of Niagara combined. TIk impulse
of (he near-by mountains is in the
water as it comes tearing down
through the prairie gorge, and a
basaltic promontory juts out from
the banks in front of the embryo
city, parting itself into islands and
the stream into different channels,
forming many diflereitt cataracts,
all frothing" and foaming in their
eager haste to get to the Columbia
river, and fretting and moaning
and fuming because of the oppo
sition they meet, in their anger
and hurry, sending up clouds of
spray that bat lie the obdurate
rocks in torrents of tear. How
we should enjoy .-ill this were it
not for the unrest that continually
hounds us when away from Innne.
Unrest that never leaves us for an
instant except when in the lecture
room, and often pursues u even
The comet was successfully pho
tographed l)r Prof. Hour' Draper
at Ins observatory at Hastings, on
June 2Cth. Prof. Draper obtained
several negative. Tho impres
sions will be made and pictures
distributed to men of science
throughout the world. The pro
fessor of the Dudley observatory
says the comet now visible is
neither the comet of 1S12 nor
that of 1S07, that ir is one lately
seen bv South American observers.
For Old Iron.
Twenty-one years ago all New
York turned out to see an iron
monster crawl up the Hudson and
cast out its huge claws into the
Ibottom of the river. This was the
steamship Great Eastern,, which
"now is offered at public auction on
-the 1st of October. In spite of
Its gigantic size it charmed the eye
by the beauty ot its lines. But it
has been from the beginning a
financial failure, and ivill perhaps
end its career by being sold for
.old' iron. The Great Eastern,
"however, has a peculiar history of
atsown tnat-Aviu noiouDtue'given
after its funoral. " -

Center of Population.
It is interesting from several
points of view, to trace the center
of population of the United States
from the east to the west, which
takes place each decade. The
geographical center of the country
is in northern Kansas, a little
nearer the western boundary line
than the eastern. But the produc
ing power of th(j western part is
not equal to that of the eastern;
consequently the meridian is lo
cated somewhere near St. Louis.
The center of .population has not
3'ct reached that point but is ap
proaching it rapidly. The thirty
ninth parallel divides the whole
area into two zones, which are
about equal in fertility. So far
the center has kept very near its
original in its progress westward.
In 1100 it was near Baltimore.
Fifty years from time it moved to
a point twenty-two miles south of
Clarksburg, "West Virginia. In
1S50 it was twent3'-five miles
south of rarksburg, and fifty-five
miles from its last position. Ten
3'cars later found it twenty miles
south of Chillicothe in Ohio, or
eighty-two miles further west. Tn
IS10 the center was forty-eight
miles northeast of Cincinnati, going
to the north fifteen, which was an
entirely new departure. This was
during the war, but in 18S0 it
veered back to the parallel and
was located m Kentucky, five
miles west of Covington and fifty
one miles west of it? position in
3S70. This is as near as it can be
ascertained until the census bureau
makes an accurate report.

refusing to take newspapers anil period

patent, for by thus advertising, his sales
are lrippled and a le-s pnipoitionate
