A SALT, MOUNTAIN.
Palestine nosscsses a remarkable
salt mountain situated nt the south
end of the Dead Sea. The length
of this ridge is six miles, with nn
average width of three-quarters of u
mile, and the height is not far ftom
GOO feet. There arc places where
thu overlaying earthy deposits are
many feet in thickness, but the
mass of the mountain is composed
of solid rock salt, some of which is
as clear as crystal. How far this
deposit of salt extends below the
suifacc of the ground no one at
picscnt knows. At somo points
this ridge, which is on the shore of
tlie Dead Sea, approaches very close
to the water, and at others it
recedes until it is fifty or more
yaids from it. Just hero the water
bf tiic Dead Sea is much more salt
than it is at the notth end, where
the Jordan enters the lake. This
salt is a Government monopoly.
The same is true of the salt that is
contained in solution in the Dead
Sea itself. If Arabs or the natives
of the country were found getting
salt from the shores of the Dead
Sea, or from this salt mountain,
they would be arrested tit once.
Most of the salt used in Hebron,
Jerusalem and elsewhere in this part
of Palestine, comes ftom these
sources, but it is gathered under
the direction of Government olllcers
and the revenue is supposed to go
to tho Government, in this salt
mountain, to say nothing of the
shores of tho Dead Sea, there is a
mine of wealth ; and if capitalists
were allowed to come in and work
it, the prosperity of this part of the
country would thereby gteatly in
crease. I have examined person
ally this salt mountain, and have
talked with the Pasha of Jerusalem,
who is also the Governor of Pales
tine, as to tho desirability of com
panies being formed which should
prepare this salt for use and ship it
to the markets of the woild ; but nt
present the Turkish Government is
hostile to any such project. Speci
mens of talt from this salt moun
tain were sent by me to the care of
the Department of State, designed
for thp exposition at New Oi leans
in 1885. Letter from Jerusalem.

times in discussing literary, scien

not inclined to seek other employ

to find n placo where they could

exceptions thoy had a memory for
little things, especially those that
pertained to their business. They
never forgot the information that
was imparted to them about how to
conduct operations, and they always
knew whero every tool wanted for
occasional use was kept. Ex.

DROLL WHITE HOUSE SCENES.
There was a large crowd at the
public reception at tho White House
to-day, aud one of the young ladies
remarked, "Now that the President
is a bachelor again, he is really
ilirling." The President's door
keeper did not give the ushers down
stairs notice that he was coming
down, and so ho walked into the
East-room before the crowd had
gathered into the usual semi-circle.
A pretty young lady, however, hap
pened to be standing waiting for the
President to enter, and she was the
firbt person he caught a glimpse of.
lie smiled sweetly and so did she.
She had to advance some distance
before she could shake hands with
him, for he always stands in one
place, near the door, during the
iccoption, and while site walked
toward him the smile grew sweeter,
and when the President grasped her
hand he was smiling too, and the
hand-Bliakc was very cordial. This
made the j'oung lady make the re
mark above quoted. There were
numbers of pretty gills among the
visitors; indeed, more than usual.
Only a few of them were brides.
Near tho end two middle-aged ladies
came up, and one introduced the
other. The latter smiled, and said:
"I know your sister Lizzie, as
wo used to call her," she ventured.
The President smijed.
i 'You call hor Koso Elizabeth now,
I believe?" said the lady again, in
an inquiring way.
"You see," put in tlje first lady,
"my friend went to school kept by
"Indeed," said the President,
and well he might have said it, for
"the scholar" looked twice as old as
Miss Cleveland, nnd she must have
been "very backward" to have gone
to school sp late in life,
"Will your sister be here this
winter?" asked "the scholar."
"No," said tho President, "not
"Indeed," said the lady; "ho
sorry," and then she passed on.

MONEY VALUE OF EDUCATION,
Charles Rendu, the novelist, who
was President of the London School
Board, and who devoted much time
to educational matters, after yeais
of careful examination of the matter,
came to conclusion that a common
school education was not an aid to
pecuniary success. He did not find,
after long inquiry, thatlaboteis who
had had the advantages of instruc
tion in schools received any higher
wages or were entitled to better pay
than those who hud never been at
school. Overseers of establishments
where skilled laborers weie employed
informed him that n very huge pro
portion of the best woikmcn, while
not entirely illiterate, woro ignorant
of every branch of education except
reading, writing nnd computation of
simple numbers. Still thoy acquired
very gteat skill, nnd were tho men
iu whom the managers placed thu
greatest reliance. Thoy had their
minds on their woilc. It was their
entire ambition to succeed in it.
Thoy learned very readily, because
they had not many things to think
