THE BET SENATOR JONES
lvarlv in Haves' administration.
Rosewater, of the Omaha Bee,)
unearthed a rotten ring at Omaha;
uiatwas roDinnguic government j
hv a scries ofland swindles. After
to convince the administration of j
the theft and convict the thieves,
Rosewater visited Hayes at Wash
ington and laid the matter before
him. The president promised that
the. ring should be immediately
cleaned out. Rosewater told
.Senator .Jones the whole story,
congratulating himself at the same
that his efforts would result in the
speedy apprehension of the swin
dlers. Nothing more was thought
about the trouble by the senator
until, two years later, he metRose
wateriu Washington again. "Well,
how is everything in Nebraska,
Rosewater?'' said the senater: "I
suppose your millennium has
come?1' "Business and all that
sort of thing is all right, but
ahem! well ' "Here, have a ci
gar," said the senator, "and tell
me all about it.' Rosewater lighted
the cigar slowly and then myste
riously invited the senator into a
quiet coiner. "Do vou remember
Omaha that T went in po TTnvos
about, two years ago?' he com-!
menced. "Yes," replied the sena-
tor, knowing exactly what was
coming. "And, you know, he prom-
ised to clean those fellows out?"
"Yes." "Well, he lias never done
it." "Tell me about the interview
you had .with him at the time."
"The interview was all right just
as straight as could be. When T
commenced to enter into the de
tails of the steals, he went to a
pigeon-hole in his desk, took out a
'scratch tab, and then telling me
to proceed, wrote down questions,
answers, names and everything.
1 was confident that he meant
business. Now, I am going to him
again and ascertain why he has not
kept his promise." Suiting his ac
tions to his words, Rosewater
braced up to start for the white
house. "Now, see here," said the
senator quietly, "that's a pretty
good cigar I gave you, isn't it?
It cost me two shillings; a box of
them is worth 23. I will bet 3011
a box and leave the bet to your de
cision, that, if 3'ou don't say any
thing about your former interview,
Hayes will take the scratch -book
from the same pigeon-hole, write
the same notes over again, and
never remember that you ever be
fore made complaint to him. This
is taking the chance on the
pigeon-hole, but I will make the
bet." Rosewater agreed. Two
hours later he entered the senator's
room with a box of cigars under
his arm. "Well?" said thej sena
tor. "You won.'1 Denver Trib

Among the loft) mountains and
elevated valleys of Switzerland
the Alpine horn has another use
beside that of sounding" the far
famed "Ranz des Vaclies," or cow
song, .and this is of a very solemn
and impressive nature. When
the sun has set in the valley and
the sunny summits of the moun
tains gleam with golden light, the
herdsman who dwells upon the
highest habitable spot takes his
horn and pronounces clearly and
loudly through it, as through a
speaking-trumpet, "Praise the
Lord God." As soon as the sound
is heard by the neighboring herds
men they issue from their huts,
take their Alpine horns and re
peat the same words. This
frequently lasts a quarter of an
hour, and the call resounds from
all the mountains and rocky cliffs
around Silence at last setttles
ovor the scene. All the herdsmen'
kneel and prav with uncovered j
heads. Meantime it has become
quite dark. "Orood-nifflit!" Qt last

Work is progressing rapidly
along the line of railroad from
Umatilla to Baker City. The
track is already laid to Pendleton,
a distance of 43 miles from Uma-I
tilla, and the grading completed
about 45 miles further, or nearly
to the summit of the Blue moun
tains. The laying of track will be.
resumed on or before November
1st, and will be reads' to tun trains
to the summit, OS miles, by the
1 st of January. The tunnel, eight
miles west of the summit, will not
be completed before the middle of
December. The grading and
bridge work over the Blue moun
tains is very hcavj- in some places.
The grading alone costs 40,000
A large force of men will eom-
mence on the. heavy rock work on
the east side of the Blue
tains "' tw0 or ll,rce weeks and
work will be pushed all winter,
A IarSe force is now at work in
Burnt river canyon and the force
ltnero wi ,)e increased so as to
insure the completion of the heavy
work near Snake river east of
Baker City early in the summer of
next year. Grading will e com
menced as soon as the line is
located through Grand Ronde and!
Powder river valleys which it is
expected will be done in three
weeks. The line of the road will
not run through Ladd's canyon
from Grand Ronde to Powder, -us
has been reported, but will run
through Pylc's canyon on the line
of the first survey.
The Oregon Construction com
pany are the contractors for this
work, and the contract is perhaps
the largest one ever entered into
by private individuals in this
A large part of the force now at
work on the Southern Pacific

much heavy work will be required,

Hints on Roasting "Wild Ducks.
If the "wild flavor" of game,
such as geese, ducks, etc, is dis
liked, they may be soaked over
night in salt water, or pare a fresh
lemon without breaking the thin
inside skin, put inside the game
for a day or two, renewing the
lemon every twelve hours. This
will absoib unpleasant flavors from
almost all kinds of meat and
game. Some say lay slices of lem
on over game while cooking and
remove before scrvina:. Young
ducks should roast from twenty
five to thirty minutes; full-grown
for an hour or more with frequent
basting. Some prefer them un
derdone, served very hot, but
thorough cooking will prove more
generally palatable. Sacramento

The Difference in Time.
Let us suppose that it is noon
on Monday, and that we are in the
Pacific ocean. At a point fifteen
degrees further west, it is eleven
o'clock; at Sydney, fifteen degrees
further, it is ten o'clock; at a point
in central Australia it is nine: at
Nanking it is eight; at a point in
Central Siam, it is seven; at Cal
cutta it is six, and the. sun there
is just rising. For every fifteen
degrees there is about one hour's
difference in time. When jt is
six o'clock at Calcutta it js five,
fifteen degrees further w-st, at
Lahore; at Bagdad it is four, at
the line, of the Ural mountains it
three; at St. Petersburg, two; at
Naples, one; and at Greenwich,
England, it is midnight, Sunday!
night, in the middle of the At
lantic, it is ten o'clock Sunday
night; and at Philadelphia, eight
o'clock; and at St. Louis, six
o'clock, or about .sunset. And so,
keeping on around the globe to
the same point in the Pacific
ocean, where we supposed it was
noon on Monday, we find that it is
noon on Sunday. Now, on the j
east side of the meridian, in the
Pacific, the day is Sunday, but
west of that point it is Monday.
In making calculations of time, the
circuit of the globe is obtained in

A good story is told of a young
man who consulted an old gentle
man who- had been very successful
in business, as to the best busi
ness in which to engage. In an
swer to the question "What had I
better do?" the old man replied,
"Stick." The young fellow ex
plained that he. wished to know
what he had best do to make
money. Again lie was told "Stick."
"Stick to what?" was asked. ;0h,
that is a matter of little conse
quence. Take almost any line of
business you like; but stick to
