Silverware, a new lot, by State of California, at Adler's. An order has been made, and will soon go into effect, which cuts off OTery-other-day trips on the routo from Redding, Cal., to Roseburg, Or.

Tho order cutting off these trips ro ducea the annual pay nearly S30,000. Crossing tho Equator. A correspondent of tho Post Intel ligencer thn9 explains how a person crossing tho equator at tho 180th mer idian loses one day out of his life, aud why. In time each day begins at midnight; in place, tho 160th merid ian. When it is midnight at Green- wich it will be, let us say, Wednesday for 180 deg. east, and Tuesday for 180 deg. west, tho 180th meridian dividing tho two days. If n, person crosses the meridian coming oast, he sails out of Wednesday and into Tuesday. If ho goes westward he sails out of Tuesday into Wednesday. It ig never the same day all around the world except when it is' striking midnight on the I80th meridian. One hour after mid night 15 deg further west, and 1, a. in. of Wednesday (say) at the mer idian, Wednesday extending over 15 deg. of tho surface of the earth, uud Tuesday over the remaining 345 deg. In other words the new day extends from tho 180th meridian east till it meets the new day at midnight. Re versing it, it is tho new day from midnight at any point -m the earth eastward to the 180 meridian, and tho old day westward to that meridian. It does not matter upon what parallel of latitude you pass tho 180th deg. of longitude whether at the equator or the Arctic circle the old day is al ways east of it and tho new day west of it. In crossing the 180th meridian ships add or drop a day in order to keep accurate time. A steamer sail ing west, from San Francisco to Yoko hama, comes to the meridian at 10 a. m. Tuesday. Her bow crosses, and in tho forecastle it Ls 10 a. m. Wed nesday, while in the cabin it ts 10 a. m. of Tuesday. A moment later, it is 10 a. m. of Wednesday in the cabin also, and Tuesday is loft behind. Twenty-four hours has been added to tho reckoning, but no time has been actually gained. A vessel sailing east ward roverses this sailing out of 10 a. m. Wednesday into 10 a. m. of Tuesday. It was once thn habit of skippers sailing eastward not to go back a day, but to add a Sunday in the middle of the week to straighten tho reckoning, to which day all jobs postponed indefinitely wore relegated, and this i3 tho origin of tho phrase often heard in New England coast towns, "When Sunday comes in the middle of the weak I'll do it." It may be asked, "What becomes of tho 10 a. iu. of Tuesday that was left be hind?" That 10 a. in. of Tuesday was twenty-four hours old. It began on the meridian twenty-four hours pre viously, traveled westward around the world, and was then ready to give np the ghost and let 10 a. m. of Wednes day begin its journey. Each hour of each day begins at the 180th meridian, travels westward for twenty-four hours, and when it arrives at the mer idian, the samo hour of the next day starts. The whole arrangement is an arbitrary one, agreed upon by Christ ian peoplo in order to simplify reck oning, nnd tho 180th meridian is se, lected for the beginning of tho day because it is in tho middlo of the Pa cific ocean And avoids the complica tions that would arise if tho day be gan at a meridian running through a thickly populated country. Clias. Stevens and Son have a stock of mouldings and moulders tools which can be bought cheap for cash to close out that branch of the business. The Astoria Railroad Grant. A gentleman lately in from the Ne halem county says ho has been there over ten yeara on a piece of railroad land.

Here is a short article on "The Astoria Land Grant," and one that requires no elaboration. Julius Halbsguth, musie teacher for piano, organ or voice culture.

Now, when a leading bank in Boston and another in New Jersey, failed, the depositors hold meetings and denounced tho thieving cashiers, and complained bitterly, all in a highly moral way. But when a Kansas cashier tnod to got away will: a mil lion or so, a large circle of admiring and confiding friends held a meeting, and gave the delinquent the alterna tive of producing the stolen money or swinging from tho limb of a tree and they got it. Such action is crush ing to that branch of industry. Hotel Arrivals. OCCIDKXT.
