'Oh. thou man of (J ml, thoro is

"In these days of our own,"

calling out th t th s death is pro-

of schemes for tho rodt'.nption of
eouls, each conceived m the
genor.il purposo to do good, but
which havi, nevortholoss, gorms
of death in thorn.
"Our church sociotios nfton try
to raise revmuos foi holy pur

of a pious giimbling feature iu

Ueporttf roceivod at the Uuited
Stitos Weather B.ireau indicalo
that tho present drought is one of
tho severest, most prolonged and
general known in tho United
States bince the bureau's organiz
ation. In no large section of tho
country, unless perhaps in the
Xoitlnvest and l'ir West, does
thoro appear to havo been a heavy
rain for the pnst two mouth-; or
aioro In some parts of tho coun
try the drought begun iu tho
lattor part of July, but in most
of the socti nis it did n it become
mnrfcodly pronounced unt.l Au
vgust. The entire Atlantic coast, with
a few exception, such as Charl s
ion, y. 0., and Augusta, Ga
.shows u dofioioncy below tho uor
inal rainfa 1 -.nee tho M of Au
gust , nmounti g, in somo instances,
to almost half of tho nvemgo pro
.oipitation. Tho Oh o and Missis
sippi valleys report similar eon-
I tons, as does a pirt of the
Paodic Coast. Tho Gio t Lake
, region, upon tho whole, has fared
bitter than any sections of tl o
.jountry oast of tho Miss'esippi.
In somo parts of tho Jtucky moun
tain legion, as in Colorado, Wy
oming, Ut h and Nevada, thoro
lme been frxcosaivo rainfalls dur
ing this period, and along the
Pacific Cu.ibt, fiom Olympia to
San Franc fco, there woio g od

been in places Biico in that soe

Tho San Franoiseo and San Jo
aquin Vail 03 Kailrond would have
bi'on a dream had it not bon for
Clans Sprockols. Now it is an
assiued fact. His capital and
energy gave it lif- and being. The
building ho is eroding for The
Call i- to bo the liuot in tho city,
if not in tho United States. Tho
building orocted by his daughter
on Market street is an ornament
to this city as it would bo to any
city. Tho improvements contem
plattd on tho purchases lately
mndo by him on .Market street aro
said to be on a likescnloof magni
ficence while his private brown
stone rosidoncc on tho corner of
Van Noss avonuo and Clay otreot,
now noaring completion, will bo
ono of tho features of tho eity. It
is modest iu its proportions but
elegant in design. I mako no
estimate of its cost, but I do not
think a million would bo out of
I mot Mr. Sprockels once on
business. Tho lato Seuutor Sar
gent gave mo a letter of introduc
tion. I did not get what 1 wanted,
but mndo the mistake of my hfo
in refusing what was offeiod.
That was in 1881, hut ho novtr
soemoil to forget my faco or naino
nhen ho mot mo in the streot. 1
phall never foigot one remark ho
mndo. "Wo were conversing on
pMitics. 1 said I thought politics
hud a tendency to unfit a man fin
ally other occupation. " Mr.
Mead," a man who does not take
au inlorost in politics is not a good
citizen. It makes uo difference to
what party he belongs; ho must
do his best to havo that party
roprosontod by honost, capablo
in on. To do this, ho must, as I
said before, .tako an interest iu
politics." Fourteon years havo
passed ami I havo not forgotten
tho words. To concludo on this
subject Mr. Sprcckels doservos, as
ho reccivos, tho praiso of all g tod
citizens for his lavish yet woll
elirectod oxpenditme of money in
a time of such groat need. Would
that his example wero followed by
others. UlriWcr Mend in AVivum
