they will be for the current month, and
yet Importations are on, a. larger wale.
Under the McKmley act the lowest re

amounted ito very nearly $31,000,000. There
ha ndt been, a July since 1836 In which
the recMpftj aid ntft exceed $30,000,000, so
I Halt (this til will fthbw the worst record
In a full decade or more. The excess of
expenditures over receipts his month

The St. Paul PIrtoecr Press saysr Last
year niUny a farmer fci Nebraska sold his
irtm fbr enijush money to leave tin; state,
while, if reports are to be believed, oth
p, d-Mhturtoned toy th total failure of
i'.c t.,.i Mir.dancd their farms and left
the scene of their troubles empty-handed
t tugirj Hfe anew elsewhere.. The tiHure
pf two crops in that state undoubteOCy
sdaled the value of farm property to an
mrauvng extent, Judging toy the amount
mums would bring at an open sale. This
year the com crop, one of the beet In
the htetiary of the sUalte, will not Only nil
the pockets of the farmers of Nebraska,
but It wOl restore In one year the firm
values so frightfully undermined by the
past. What is true of Nebraska Is more
or less true of Mtaieaolta. and Ithe Dako
Bas. While there has been no absolute
fuBure of crops In the near Northwest,
the yield and prices for the pant two
years havo not been encouraging. It
not to be wondered at thlat Immigration
has .turned t the Southwest rather than
to that secltion and that the demand for
farm property has been very light. The
present crop will change this. Not only
wHl It bring talto that eeot&oiY epproxl
mately $167,000,000, an amount which wlU
represent about $76 for every Inhabitant
of theele three etots, but It will Increase
the value of the farms of the Northwest
ajmost 30 per cent, for the property has
become profitably productivev The crops
will he the moot effective adverlt'jsement
that seat Bon ever had, and already the
railroad land departments are feeling the
effect in inqiuirles by prospective settlers.
The happy incident of bountiful crops
amd fair prices at one time assures the
farmers of a good Income and adds to
their wealth by increasing the value of
property. In a few months the mart
gages of the Northwest ougihlt to be large
ly supplanted by bank accounts.
AtocordUig to a Washington dispatch

for the object of the organization Is the
adoption of silver mbnamethlllsm Is go
ing 'to he first in the field w th a prestden
Ual ticket, and Senator Jones of Nevada,
Is to be at the head at ft. Evidently the
managers of the leagus have no hope of
success, tfhbugh they say .they have great
hopes, when they eelect as a danVlkltute
a man who, Oiavlng been born a foreigner,
Is intelligible. Electoral votes cast for
Jones could not be counted. These silver
monometatUists who call (themselves bi-
mdtnmats know that, and they are think'
Ing of listing Junes' name only because
he is a wealthy man, owning one or more
silver mines, and they believe he will
bleed freely if his van'.ity I9 tickled by
a nomination.
Harrison sayls he bellevus that "the
American flag should be hbiated on every
public building, and planted In the heart
of every American citizen." That kind
of talk, siys the CTbtjoDamtocrat, has
never yet done harm to a candidate for
the pres&Jenoy.
The treasury gold reairve is beginning
to decline again, but it Is to be hoped
that the uldmlnlstnittlon will not be obllg'

to protect It by selling bonds to th.m at
their own price.
It Is estimated 'that one of the counties
of Illinois will produce 13,000,000 bushels

They Are Blind and Inhabit a Bottomless
Pond With no Visible outlet.
The aueer flsh What for a short time
every season Inhabit the Bottmless pond,
near MHford, Ct., made tihelr first ap
pearance for this year last Sunday morn-
r.s. The pond lies in a deep ravine on
the Bouthwest side of New Haven turn
pike, only two miles from the village.
The wayfarer llnds himself standing on
the edge of a circular gulf some 7b ieet
across. The ptrpenaicuiar wans are 01
green marble, beautifully shaded and mot
tled. About 30 feet below the level wnere
the nath terminates the walls end at a
fairly even shelf about 12 feet wide. On
one side a series of rudely cut steps af
ford menas of descent to the level border
cf the pond.
Old Dan Buckley was buckleberrylng
near the quarry three years ago when he
dlscovertd the flsh for which the pond Is
celebrated. As he apprdached the edge of
the pond quietly he saw albout 20 good
sized flsh lytrg motionless near the sur
face. He dislodged a pebble by accident,
and at the sound of Its fall t'he flsh van
ished as if by magic. Last year they ap
leard early In June and several unsuc
cessful attempts were made to catch
fhem. A New 'Haven flatting enthusiast
took Ashing tackle and a folding canvas
boat to (tie pond one morning. His
scheme was to snare the flsh if they re
fused to notice his bait. He launched tils
boat ao.fely and enjoyed the sensation of
being the first man to drift out on the
Bottomless pond, but the flsh disappeared.
For t'.vo hours ho waited In Vain for their
refurn. Before he came ashore he tried
to sound the depth of the pond. He let
out DO yards of trout line, well weighted,
but he found no bottom.
An attempt to catch the flsh Is to be
rnadt this season by a Yale professor and
his friends. Their plan Is to set a line gill
net horltonhilly across the pond at a
depth of about three feet. They hope that
the flsh In riftng will run into the mtshes
and be cauirtit. All the flsh are of about
the same size 18 li,ches long and sUnder,
like a dace In form, but almost a Jet
hlack. No scales are discernible, and
their (Ins and tails resemble those cf the
ctmmon brook trout. When in repose,
they are only about three or four Inches
below the surface and Invariably face to
ward the north. The eyes are large and
protrude from the head.
It has been virtually proved that the
flsli are atone blind, for although they
sink out of sight at the slightest Jar or
noise they do not notice Uhe waving of
poles or leaves over the pond. The people
here cull the flsh white yes.
If the pond Is fed by subterranean
streams at water, these fish, It Is thought,
may be visitors from an underground lake
or from a distant river. There are only
about two months In which to study their
lhablts. At the opening of August the
strange vlritants disappear as suddenly as
they come. Henry Tuttle. the expressman,
was the first person to see them this year,
and he says they look the Same as ever,
hut are rathsr blgycr than last year. A
dox.n or more persons have visited the
pond slnoe Sunday and have seen the flsh.

"One of the most Interesting and In
genious methods of raising water from
a river I saw recently on a visit :o
Green River," said Assistant Engineer
Gllcrest. "It was a contrivance arranged
by Charles McPherson at that place, u
consists of a wooden wheel two and a
half feet In diameter armed with paddles,
which were set In motion by the current
of the river, into which it was placed be
ttreon tiro scows. At one point In the cir
cumference of the wheel Is an offset with
an opening In It. As the wheel revolves
the wa'.er Is forced through the opening
Into a coil of pipe In the body of the
wheel, whlth Is arranged like a snail's
shell. This coil tmnHates In the exle
of the wheel, which consists of a gas
pipe two and a hUf inches la diameter.
A perpendicular aNivlplps rises from th
exle five and a half feet above the cen-
I ter of the wheel, and through this pipe
1 tlhe water is forced In a continuous
"All of the work on the wheel is rough
and ready, but the principle of the thing
was newi to me. The maker of the wheel
told me that a wheel eight feel In dla
meter would raise water through a two
and a half inch pipe to a height of 20
ireet. The height to twhlch It is raised de
pends upon tahe number of colls in the
interior of the wheel. The wheel I saw
was covered with Russian flron sheeting
so as to make It air tight except for the
opening at the offset, and I suppose that
compressed air has much to do with
forcing the water so far above the su.'
face. A good feature of the wheel is
Chat It need not he permanently fix;
anywhere. It is set between two scows
and therefore rises and falls with the
Current. It was well worth while going
a good distance to see It rwurk." Chey

I'd a:ways thine on holidays,
Were I the sun;
On sleepy heads I'd never gaze,
But focus all my morning rays
On busy folks of bustling ways,
Were I the sun.
I would not melt a sledding snow,
Were I the sun;
Nor spoil the Ice where stealers go.
Nor help those useless weeds to grow.
But hurry melons on, you know,
Were I the sun.
I'd warm the. swimming pool Just right,
were I the sun:
On school days I would hide my light
The Fourth I'd always give you bright,
wor set so soon on Christmas night,
Were I the sun.
I would not heed such paltry toys,
Were I the sun
Such work as grown-up men employs;
But I would favor solid Joys
In short, I'd run the world for boys,
Were 1 the sun.

called Indio, which, in our opinion, 1:
the sanitarium of the earth. We be

for certain invalids, tlie-e Is no spot oi

Nature has accomplished sc
much that there remains but little fot

oxygen, aenps atmospnere and pure

It Is the place, above all others, for
