The gentlemen comprising tho survey

on Monday treated to a sight which sel
dom comes to men in this center of civili
zation. We get the story from Messrs.
Pollock and "Ross, transit men of the
The men -were working tip the canyon
about a mile above the Millard House
when thejT heard a peculiar, crashing
noise. Looking up they saw on the cliffs
high above the stream, and about a quar
ter of a mile from tbem, two noble
bucks standing, with, heads lowered,
about ten feet from each other. Thus
they stood eying each other and pawing
the dirt for fully a minute. Then they
made a simultaneous spring, and came
together with a noise like a falling tree.
So violent was the concussion that the
animals were thrown back until a dis
tance of ten or fifteen again intervened
between them. The men, fascinated
with the sight, watched the deer go
through the same performance again
Finally, after a more than usually
violent rush, the bucks did not separate,
but struggled as if apparently trying to
push each other back. It soon became
plain to th men, however, that instead
of pushing they were pulling away from
each other. In other words their horns
had become locked, and from raging
combatants the bucks became fright
ened animals, and were only bent on se
curing a divorce. Messrs. Ross, Pol
lock and party then conceived the idea
of taking advantage of the helpless con
dition of the bucks and capturing them.
They made a great rush for the scene,
but before they reached it the deer in
their struggles approached too near the
edge of the cliff and both of them fell
to their death in the pool below. When
the party reached the water the deer
were found locked in each other's horns
Tho gentlemen thought to skin the
deer and bring in the hides to lend an air
of authenticity to the tale, but the law
is so strict as to having in your posses

Narrow Wagon Tires and Bad Roads.

agricultural journals, the farmers aro
busy working np the subject in a prac

proper way by industriously, and at
much expense of 'ime and team, cutting
np and destroj'ing the roads by driving
heavily loaded, narrow tired wagons
over them. When we see a man on a
, heavily loaded, narrow tired wagon urg

utmost power in making mud, and then
grumbling because of the "horrid'
muddy roads, he seems to be an object
The only thing he seems disposed to
do to make matters different is to throw
some hard words into tho muddiest
places, and then continne his custom of
turning out on to the highway with his

wet for plowing. Now, if the legisla
ture is to do anything for the roads, let
them begin by legislating the narrow
tires off the heavy lumber and truck
wagons. I have seen a single heavy,
narrow tired wagon in the distance of a
half mile cause more damage than could
be repaired in six days of ordinary road

Coolness In a Mixed College.
There is a coolne3 between the boys
and the girls of the Stanford university.
It all came about from a question of pro
priety. The boys gave a ball in their
dormitory hall on Monday night, to
which they invited all the girl students,
as well as the professors. Elaborate
preparations were made, and the young
men anticipated an evening of enjoy
ment. They hired a baud, and had the
dormitory beautifully decorated.
One or two of the more modest and re
tiring of the maidens in the girls' dormi
tory were shocked at the avowed inten
tion of some of the girls to attend the
ball, and called a meeting of the girls, at
which there was a long discussion of the
Many of the fair students said they
could see no harm in going to the ball aa

of not attending the ball. So none of

much out of place on the farm as on the

wide tires they will do so. They seem
to be afraid that they will do more than

started for the train. Before it reached i

Kingston is a cunning little rascal.

went through the pockets of the sleeping
chief and found the key which unlocked
his handcuff. Stealthily he crept over

stopped at Desplaines the chief and his
youthful prisoner parted company.
The train had gone a good many
miles when Chief Adamson awoke. Of
course he was mad, but when he looked
for the key with which to remove the
handcuff from his own wrist his wrath
knew no bounds, for Tommy had taken
it with him. All efforts to remove the
bracelet were fruitless, and nntil he
reached Madison his left hand and wrist
were buried deep in his overcoat pocket.

"A month hence," says a California
engineer of reputation, "theSalton lake
will have dried up."' Salton lake, it will
be remembered, is the shallow inland
Bea which was formed by a break in the
Colorado river, whose water.s in modern
times, at least, flowed into the Gulf of
California, as we know it. The basin of
the short lived lake, however, was ones
a part of the gnlf, and if the flow of
water had continued gome modern im
provements might indeed have been ef
fected. The river will not boom again
till spring, when the lake may refill.
Any device that could render it perma
nent would have a mitigating effect
upon the dreaded Arizona climate, of
which dire stories are told. Worse
things could happen than the tapping of
the Colorado river higher up, so that all
its waters might flow into the old chan

A Tremendous Barley Farm.
"We have now secured 250,000 acres
of land in North Dakota for barley
farms, and next spring we will send
thousands of German emigrants to that
state from Ohio, West Virginia and In
diana," said Colonel 0. M. Towner aa
he discussed the future of this great
northern state. Colonel Towner is man
ager of what is best known as the Barley
syndicate of Chicago. During the last
two or three months the company has
succeeded in securing 250,000 acres of
land in North Dakota, on which it is
proposed to place German farmers to
raise barley for malt purposes. These
lands have been purchased in Nelson,
Norman, Towner, Kanisey, Steele and
It is the opinion of the managers of
this company that barley can be most
successfully grown in that state, and
they have the conviction of their belief
sufficiently to purchase these lands and
to send out emigrants from other states.
The Germans are chosen on account of
their knowledge of barley culture for
this purpose. These emigrants will not
be tenants, but owners of the land, it
being sold to them on easy terms. The
crops will be bought by the company
and shipped to all points where there is
a demand for barley. St. Paul Pioneer

To Celebrate the Marseillaise.
Another effort is being made by the
inhabitants of Choisy-Ie-Roi, outside of
Paris, to observe with much solemnity
and ceremonial what is vaguely called
the "Centenary of the Marseillaise."
Choisy-le-Roi claims to possess the dust
of Rouget de l'Isle the composer of the
hymn who was buried there in 1836,
his birthplace being Lons-le-Saulnier, in
the department of the Jura. On this ac
count the members of the borough coun
cil consider that they have the right to
take the initiative in organizing a Eight
Republican festival this year, as the Mar
seillase, nnder the title of "Chant de
Gnerre de TAnnee du Rhin," was first
heard in 1792.
President Carnot is to be asked to be
come honorary president of tho commit
tee of the fete, and appeals for funds
will be made to all the cities, and also
to communes which possess more than
4,000 inhabitants. No date as yet haa
been fixed for the celebration of the cen
tenary, to which it is presumed that
every patriotic Frenchman "will give his

fifteen feet long. Reports of second
