1 Ex-Governor Pennoyer, of Ore

$3,500 in Williams college to the
memory of his son, Horace Nath

November at the college hospital.
The income is to be devoted to the
support of worthy students. In
1670, William Pennoyer, of Eng
land, endowed four scholarships
at Harvard, uhich still yield an
income for worthy students.
The Northwest Insurance Com
pany of Portland, which bos been
doing business in Oregon for about
ten years has decided to go out of
business. The Company will re
insure in reliable old time com
panies, so that policy holders will
be safe. Stockholders hae paid
their stock up entirely, and it is
doubtfull if anything is left for
them after all obligations are met.
Same think there will be. The
company met a great backset in
the Washington fi.es, and also in
eastern business, which could
hardly be overcome.
It is no uncommon thing to read
of stock running into a barb-wire
fence, or a team getting against a
bunging telegraph wire, but it is
out of the way to read of a passen

says The Dalles Chronicle. Such
a case occured to the westbound
passenger yesterday morning be

white the high water level had rises
to such an extent aa to pile flouting de
bris six feet deep on the bridge floor In
times of flood. The alterations includ
ed some reinforcements, besides the
raising of the whole structure about
five feet The bridge was continuous
over a center pier, and had two main
vertical poets then and four vertical
end posts. To each of these posts an
inclined strut was attached in a trans
verse vertical plane, presenting a sur
face for the top of a hydraulic jack to
set upon. Eight special one hundred
ton Jacks wen used, with an eight
inch stroke and a working pnssun of
four hundred atmospheres, the 'piston
being nearly seven-tenthB in diameter.
The fluid used was a mixture of water,
alcohol and glycerine. Sixteen men
operated the Jacks, their movements
being synchronised by a code of sig
nals, designed to secure uniformity of
action. The bridge was raised a toot
or two by short lifts, followed up by
thorough blocking, and then building
under one course of cut-stone masonry.
The total load was five hundred and
forty-six tons, and the maximum load
on a alngle jack was eighty-seven
tons, The bridge -was raised in four
stages during intervals between trains.
The longest Interval between trains
was about two hours. The weight of
trains was rigidly restricted during the
time the bridge was undergoing re
pairs, and their speed was limited to
three miles an hour in crossing the
bridge. In addition, a special block
system was organized upon that sec
tion of the line upon which the bridge
is located, so that operations could be
suspended snd the track restored five
minutes before the arrival of a train at
IRRIGATION IN THE WEST.
h Vast BB1aM!tof Works of the On
Aourteaa Dwett iUftan.
Very few people realize what vast
engineering and construction problems
are being solved out west in what a
few years ago was termed the Great
American Desert region, says Land
and Water. The same desert region is
of remarkable fertility when water is
supplied by irrigation plants. The
Bweetwster dam, in southern Cali
fornia, is the pride of its builders and
is worth many millions to the lands It
renders fertile. In Arizona an immense
canal is being built, which will utilize
a part of the surplus waters of Colorado
and irrigate 200,000 acres of land. In
New Mexico, in Eddy county, is the
second largest irrigation plant in the
United States. To secure an abund
ance of water at all times, two im
mense reservoirs were constructed
capable of storing 6,000,000,000 cubic
feet of water.
Some idea of the size of these arti
ficial lakes may be had when it Is
mentioned that one of them is thirteen
miles long by four miles wide. The
water from these reservoirs is con
ducted through some 1,200 miles of
canals and ditches and Irrigates or will
irrigate 250,000 acres of land, mostly
fruit and garden land. Imagine a
water-works plant with a reservoir 40,
000 feet square and having 1,200 miles
of mains. It took three yeare to build
this plant Vet others as great or
greater an projected and will be con
structed. The future effect of all this
vast labor and skill is not easy to pre
dict In many places they have surely
made the desert bloom and turned
poverty into wealth.
HUMOR ON THE BENCH.

When, in a trial about limestone
quarries, a barrister called Caldecott,
according to the Argosy, had said over
and over again with dull verbosity that
they "were not ratable, because the
limestone could only be reached by
boring, which was a matter of science,"
you, Mr. Caldecott, have us believe that
every kind of boring is a matter of sci
ence?" With finer humor he nipped
in the bud one of Handle Jackson's
flowery harangues. "My lords," said
the orator, with nervous Intonation,
"in the book of nature it is written"
"Be kind enough, Mr. Jackson," inter
posed Lord EUenborougb, "to mention
