mother who can not allow tho daughter's least statement to pass unchallenged;
or n sister who is forever tripping up nnotbor sister. I remember two sisters,
maiden Indies (peace to their nshest) who wcro inseparable, and who never
ceased quarrelling with each other about things that camo up in tho course
of conversation things that did not matter and "never could matter. They
thought nothing of keeping you waiting ten and even fifteen minutes for a
story's finnlo -whilst they wrangled oer somo unrelated and obscure point
that, like the flowers that bloom in tho spring, had nothing to do -with tho
case. Five times out of seven, theso side issues became so absorbing that the
main theme was forgotten, nnd tho climax of tho story never reached. For
nxnmple, Miss Bophia would begin a story about the Into king nnd Gen. William
Booth, and before you know whero you were, Miss Mntllda had pulled her up
sharply on somo minor point, nnd both were head over heels in -argument. It

This hole appeared to bo a cavern

tho tip of the north horn of tho
western pool, of inflow
under tho bank opposite tho placo of
cmergenco of tbo cascade.
That this was actually what was taking
placo was confirmed today, November
14, when tho whole pool was splendidly
rovcaled between 9 and 10 a. m.
and visible from tho N, W. btation.
Tho roof of the tubo hnd collapsed,
just as tho Old Faithful cono had
fallen in, and there Is now a
river of molten lava, fifteon or twenty
feet wide, pouring around tho north
end of a peninsula whoro tho isthmus
and the tubo was from tho
west pool into tho caBt pool; tho stream
pours directly into tho Old Faithful
fountain. The two pools havo thereby
become united into one, shaped liko a
pair of well-stuffed saddle-bags, with
tho rivor tlio connecting strnp. Tho
peninsula has tho lumpy remnant of
tho Old Faithful cono at its northern
end, and this is being augmented in
size by spatter from tho adjacent fountains.
Mr. Wood reports four slight earthquakes
that havo been recorded on tho
seismograph during tho past week, as
November 7, from 2:15:43 p. m. to
2:10:29 p. m. H. S. T.
November 8, from 3:01:30.5 a. m. to
3:02:47 a. m. H. S. T.
Novembor 9, from 4:14:23.5 p. m. to
4:15:32 p. m. II. S. T.
November 12, from 8:57:00 p. m. to
8:57:47 p. m. II. S. T.
All havo been local in chnractor with
tho origins distant from this station
approximately as follows:
November 7, 28 miles; November 8,
15 miles; November 0, 14 miles, ana
Novombor 12, 18.5 miles.
Taking tho minimum intensity
to tho senses as unity, tho ap
proximate valuo of tho intensities of
these in ordor, have been
M7th, and rcipoctlvoly.
