Now "Wonders In tlio Xutioual Park
2Ir. G. L. Henderson, one of the
superintendents of the Yellowslont?
National Park, has given the follow
ing description of te wonders exist
ing in that portion of the j,irk lying
on the forks of the Firehole rivera,
south of Marshall's Hotel. He has
resided in the park since 1SS2, and
during the last year he ha3 made the
most thorough and careful search in
the region of hot springs, spouting
geysers and mud volcanoes. He says
"that what the old guide hooks des
ignate as the 'Lower Geyser Basin,'
contained over a thousand objects of
special interest, not over three of
which haverbeen named or even no
ticed, and at best the whole was con
densed into a few lines or a single
paragraph, and for the reason that it
was both a terra incognita and in
nominata. "The Chemical Basin, of which
there are three divisions, contains
vast bowls or basins of decomposed
rock, pulverized and in a liquid, jelly
like form, of every shade and color,
and so hot that it would he instant
death to any living thing which had
the misfortune to slip down the oily
walls into one of these seething
"The mostremarkable of these boil
ing paint bowls, I named 'Lindren's
Garden,' in honor of Baron von Lin
dren, of Amsterdam, who, during his
visit to the National Park last Octob
er, was the first to observe and to
sketch the marvelous floral forms
that rise incessantly and bloom a brief
moment and then fade away, to be
succeeded by a never-ending and
ever-varying displaj' of lillies, roses,
sunflowers. This kaleidoscopic floral
morphology is created on the surface
of a thick cream-colored paint, in a
bowl thirty feet in diameter. Every
flower form is well defined and is
never repeated. No waste and no
"This basin lies south of Chemical
Basin, and is even more wonderful,
though in another way. It contains
over three hundred minature moun
tains, each of which sends out puffs
of steam, and several of them are
active mud volcanoes. One of these
opened at the top like the jaws of a
bull-dog, and there were five succes
sive eruptions of white lava sent up
vertically about three feet, when the
opening closed with a snap, after
which the lava slowly trickled down
the sides of the .mountain and soon
hardened into a crust like dry putt'.
Another one close by had an erup
tion, sending up at each discharge, a
few seconds apart, small marble
shaped balls, most of which fell back
into the crater.
"On the west bank of the Firehole
river an active geyser sent up every
fifteen or twenty minutes a volume
of boiling water about ninety feet
high. The crater to the depth of
thirty feet was lined with a series of
skull-like knobs ranged in rows as if
a phrenologist had been collecting a
cabinet of craniums. There were
skulls of every form and size, from
that of an infant's to a giant's in size,
and from that of idiot to a Bacon's in
"Near the Skull geyser and close
b' the river is a most singular boil
ing pool containing a coarse black
sand. From some inexplicable cause
this black sand rises like a huge bub
ble and falls back, leaving the water
for an instant turbid, after which it
becomes clear as crystal. Each suc
ceeding globe becomes larger until
the seventh, which bursts with a re
port like the crack of a whip. The
looker-on instinctively makes a step
backward until he becomes accus
tomed to this pugnacious manner of
coming to a climax. This geyser
suggests its own name, the Concus
sion. "About two miles east of the road
leading past the Fountain geser to
the Upper Geyser basin is the largest
lake of boiling water in the park or
in the world.
"Walpurgia Lake is nearly two
miles long by one in width at the
widest place. The shores are lined
with a black lavatic scoria similar to
that found at Vesuvius. There is at
the head of this lake a powerful gey
ser continually in action. The west
side of the cone nearest the lake
gleamed like alabaster through vast
clouds of vapor that filled the basin
and floated away into the woods on
the northern shore. The east side
was black as ebony. The boiling
torrent swept over the marble front
with a periodical dash and roar that
was deafening. It seemed as if a
black demon were deluging an angel
with a flood of iniquity, in spite of
which it became purer and whiter.
It was named Mephistopheles and
Wouldn't Forget Him.
A benevolent gentleman, while
watting for a street car, was ap
proached by a negro who asked him
for a nickel. The gentleman only
had a nickel, but there was some
thing so appealing about the negro,
that he cave him the nickel and de
cided to walk home.
"Thankee, sahl Thankee. Do

"That's all right."
"Yas, sah, yas."
Just then the car came along and
the negro hopped on with agility.

"You are an old scoundrel."

Theodora was the daughter of a
bear-keener attached to the hippo
drome at Constantinople, and was
one of three sisters whom their moth
er sent on the stage when they were
still children 7 or 8 years old. "With
no talent either for music or .dancing,
her fortune was in her face and her
tongue. Her pretty features, her
nimble movements, her audacious
smartness in repartee, made her the
most popular and notorious in tne
pantomimes (to use the nearest mod
ern equivalent) which delighted a
people whose taste had fallen below
the regular drama. Needless to say
what was the morality of the Byzan
tine stage, or what was the life which
the young actress led. Her enemies
of later years declared it to have been
more than usually shameless and dis
gusting, but the question, if delicate
ly balanced less or more, besides be
ing now insoluble, need make little
difference to our view of her charac
ter. After some years she accompan
ied a wealth' Tyrian, as his mistress,
to the governorship of Tripoli ; quar
reled with him, left him, and after
being reduced to sad straits in Egypt,
found her way back to Constantino
ple, where according to a story cur
rent long afterward in the city, she
sought to support herself by spinning
wool in a house near the edge of the
Golden Horn. This looks like trying
to turn over a new leaf. However,
she did not conceal her charms. En
couraged by the words of an Oriental
fortune-teller, who had promised her
wealth and power, she threw herself
in the way of Justinian, who yielded
at once to her fascinations. He was
then about 40 j'ears of age probably
some 20 years her senior nephew of
the reigning emperor, and gathering
into his hand3 the reins of the gov
ernment which were beginning to
slip from the grasp of his aged and
ignorant uncle. lie was an able and
well-educated man, already remark
able for his fondness of theology and
his assiduous attention to public
business. Hi3 passion led him to
promise to marry the whilom actress,
but a law dating (in substance) from
the time of Augustus, and re-enacted
by later emperors, forbade the union
of senators and other persons of ex
alted rank to women who had been on
the stage. Nothing was left but to
repeal the law, which the emperor
was compelled by the urgency of his
nephew to do, and the statute may
still be read in that corpus juris which
so long held sway over continental
Europe, a monument of Theodora's
arts and Justinian's susceptibility.
There had been, however, a more
serious obstacle to the nuptials of tho
eager pair. The Empress Euphemia
was an mnorant and rustic person,
who had risen in life too late to ac
quire the polish of the capital. But
sue was pious, and she was respect
able to the backbone. She had prob
ably heard of Theodora's earlier fame
for the court was like most courts :
anj'how she knewwhatTheodorahad
been, and tho idea oi her nephew
marrying such a person was tooshpek
ing to be considered. While she lived
she held out and kept her husband to
resistance; but when she died he
gave way, the law was repealed, the
marriage was solemnized, and when
in a few years the old emperor died
Theordora was crowned along with
her husband, and received the hom
age of the senate, the priesthood and
the people. A rise HV this had never
been seen before, not even in Con
stantinople, and was never seen again.
That such a person should have mar
ried an emperor was wonderful
enough. But that of all emperors she
should have married Justinian, the
studious and pious Justinian, the in
dustrious and abstemious Justinian

view. How Tho Monkeys Tricked the lleos.
Two monkeys sat under a tree in
an Indian forest. One monkey was
seen to busy himself in smearing the
other with red clay earth. "When he
had succeeded in entirely covering his
companion, he disappeared into a
neighboring wood, leaving the other
a mass of clay, but for two small
holes through which peered a pair of
cunning eyes. Then the bedaubed
monkey was seen to climb to the
hollowof a tree where was a bee-hive.
The-bees buzzed about the intruder,
but all they could do was to leave
their stings in his clay coat. At length
they swarmed away in despair, and
the clever monkey helped himself to
the honey comb. Then tho other
monkey came out of his hiding-place
and proceeded to pick off the clay
covering from his brother. This done,
they set to work at the honey-comb
and finished it.

The song of home grew out of a

of the pilgrim's progress when man
