A Wonderful Tlece of Mechanism Tbat
Represents the Sufferings or Jesus.
Hermann Jacobs, a carpenter, of Bnnz
lan, Prussia, has been credited with con
structing a wonderful piece of mechan
ism representing in several successive
scenes the passion of tho Saviour. All
the actors in the grand but beautiful
drama are carved from wood, and are
each about six inches in height. The
machinery runs by clockwork, and enacts
the various parts three times in each
winding. The panorama first unfolded
is a beautiful garden, with a figure of
Jesus kneeling in prayer under one of
the trees, figures of the three sleeping
apostles being plainly discernible in the
As the machinery warms up the
wheels and the figures move more rap
idly, quickly unfolding the last scenes in
the earthly career of Jesus. The last
supper, the betrayal, the remorseful
look which comes over the face of Judas
when he first realizes the extent of his
crime, the examination of Jesus before
Caiaphas, the dialogue between Pilate
and the Jews—all flit before the gaze in
a manner so astonishingly lifelike and
real as to make one almost believe him
self at Calvary. After the sentence has
been pronounced a figure of Jesus with
the cross appears.
The cross is mechanically erected while
the little figures busy themselves binding
the figure to be nailed upon it. Ladders
are run np to the aims of the cross, a
little figure quietly slips over the rungs,
then there is a sound of hammers as two
figures hold the one that is being nailed
to the cross by the figures on the ladders.
At last, when all is thought to be fin
ished, a figure on horseback slides across
the platform, draws his sword and
thrusts it into the side of the figure on
the cross. The last scene shows Jesus
in the sepulcher, with angels guarding
Mr. Adams in his "Letters on Silesia"
says: "It is the most remarkable piece
of mechanism I have ever seen. The
traitor's kiss, the scourging, the nailing
to the cross, the sponge of vinegar and
every seeming pain inflicted occasion
feelings which cannot be felt at mere
description."—St. Louis Republic.
How Frank Leslie Died.
Mr. Leslie was physically strong and
hearty to the very hour of his death, till
his life being singularly free from aches
or pains. His death was caused by it
small tumor in the throat; being just
beneath .the jugular vein, the tumor
could not be touched by the lance The
day of his death Mr. Leslie took a long
walk, little thinking that in a few hours
he should be numbered with those who
have gone on ahead of us to the un
known country. They sent for me in
the heart of the city. I hastened to his
bedside with all speed. When I arrived
he lay sleeping. I spoke to him. He
did not know me, or appear to take
much interest in my words. Still, I felt
hopeful. I eonld not believe that he
must die. Those about tho bed were
One said to me: "Do not deceive
yourself; this means death." I put my
two arms over the dying man's shoul
ders and looking into his face asked him
to speak to me. He opened his eyes,
smiled faintly, then said to me these
words: "You are beautiful .and I love
you!" He had thrown all his life into
his voice. His head dropped back —he
was dead. Yet even in the face of death
this man had time to turn aside from
the deep Plutonian shadows of eternity
and consecrate his expiring breath to
the love and tenderness of wife and
home. Ah, sir, such a life as this could
not have been entirely in vain.—lnter

PROVIDENCE GAVE THE SIGNAL.
Mysterious Ringing of a Hell Tbat Pre
vented v Railroad Accident.
A dozen railroad engineers and con
ductors met by chance the other day
and an old gray haired veteran of the
cab told a story. He had been an engi
neer wnth a big reputation as a "run
ner" in the days gone by, but on account
of failing nerves and eyesight was now
enjoying an easy berth around the
shops. He said:
"It was when the old Y. M. and B.
was first opened up," he began. "I was
pullin' passenger, and took the first coach
over the road. I got a good run—all day
work —and was holdin' her down as a
good thing. 'Bout a year after we'd got
to doin' a good business I had some ex
tra runnin' aud lost my turn for awhile,
and run nights all of the time. It was
my last trip before I'd get back to my
own run, and I was feelin' glad to get
on to the day 'trick' again.
"We'd had some mighty bad weather
and lots of water fell. Our track was
in pretty good shape, though, and we
didn't much fear washouts, so we kept,
up with the 'card' pretty well. On the
night I spoke about I was on No. 2. We
had a heavy train, but the machine I
had was able to 'get there.,' and I was
on time till we struck a freight that
couldn't take the siding. They 'swung
us down,' and we side tracked jantil the
freight got away. I" was pretty warm
over losing the time, and when we lit
out of there I pulled her right up to the
notch and she went for all she was
"We were making about forty-five
miles an hour, and when we reached the
'fill' east of Wildcat I worked steam all
the way down. We were 'bout half
was* to the creek when the bell rang. I
worketl mighty quick, but it was down
hill and the rails were wet and I didn't
get stopped until the pilot was almost
over the bridge—or where the bridge
ought to be—'cause when I stopped the
headlight was shining over a chasm.
The bridge was washed away. Gad!
You can tell just 'bout how I felt. My
fireman nearly fainted, and I wasn't far
behind him. Well, after we stopped the
conductor, a smart chap with a fancy
lamp and a rubber collar, came arunreiu'
up wantin' to know why I stopped.
" ' 'Cause the bell rang. What did
you pull the rope for?' I says.
" 'I didn't,' says he.
" 'Well, who did?'
" 'No one,' says he, hot like.
" 'Well, some one pulled it or I
wouldn't a stopped,' says I.
"The 'con' looked at me a minute, and
just then the brakeman came up.
" 'Did you pull the rope, Joe?' said the
" 'No,' says Joe.
"Just of a sudden a thought struck
me. and I told the 'brakey' to ask the
porter. The 'coon' hadn't pulled the
bell, and the passengers in his car were
all asleep until I jerked them endways
with the 'air.' I took the conductor
around to the front end and showed him
the bridge. He was scared to death, and
we went back together through the
train to sec who pulled the bell rope, but
every mother's son of them swore it
wasn't touched. I began to get scared
again and told them about the bridge,
and everybody came out to look at it.
"We couldn't find any one who gave the
signal, and after we'd flagged back to
the station I got to thinkin' more and
more, and I came to the opinion that the
bell was rung by Providence. There
was 150 people on the train, and if that
bell hadn't rung I'd a took them all over
into the Wildcat, and dropped them
about one hundred feet into the water.
There wouldn't be anybody left to tell
about it, either.
"The superintendent looked into the
thing utter I reported, and had me and
Joe up 'on the carpet' twice, but we
both heard the bell, and swore to it.
Some chap got out a long explanation
that the bell rope was tight stretched,
and we struck a low joint coming down
tiie hill, when one end of the coach
sagged, and the rope being tight it rang
the bell, but I don't believe it. It was
Providence that did it, and I know it,
and I've never swore an oath since, and
never will."—Kansas City Star.
They Farted to Meet No More.
A clergyman called on a man who had
just lost his wife to offer him consola
tion. "Don't fret, my friend," the clergy
man said; ' 'the time will soon come when
you will meet her never to part again."
"But parson," said the man, "I've been
married twice, and what I want to know
is which wife am Ito meet 'never to part
again?' Or am I to meet both of them
'never to port again?' It strikes me that,
if so, it will be a bit awkward. Besides,
I hated my first wife, for she was a reg
The clergyman was puzzled what to
say, when toe man suddenly brightened
up and exclaimed, almost cheerfully:
"I think it will be all right, parson.
My first wife was such a downright bad
'un that I don't think there's much fear
of my meeting her in heaven."—London

SEMI-TROPIC LAND AND WATER
Location of Lands, With Description of
Soil and Climate, and Comparison ol
Prices With Other Lands of Similar
The original purchase of these lands
comprised 29,000 acres, situate immedi
ately west of the cities of San Bernardino
Two transcontinental lines of railroad,
the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific, trav
erse east and west these lands, exactly
two miles apart, giving us two townsites
and stations upon each road, the stations
being four miles from each other, thereby
giving us unexcelled shipping facilities.
Our land extends to within three miles
of San Bernardino, one and one-half of
Colton on the east and five miles of
Riverside on the south.
Our average altitude is about 1200
feet above sea level, with a gradual and
regular slope from the mountains on the
north, with just fall enough to irrigate
We are 400 feet higher than Riverside
and 200 higher than San Bernardino,
which exempts us almost entirely from
Our lands are peculiarly adapted to i
citrus fruits, being right in the heart, of
the best orange producing country in the
state of California. Our subsoil is the
same that has made Riverside famous
the world over, with this advantage—we
are fortunate in having a top dressing of
decomposed granite ranging to a depth j
of from six to eighteen inches, which
holds the moisture, always being in good ■
condition ior cultivation and readily
furnishing the proper nourishment for
starting the growth of freshly planted ;
trees and vines.
Irrigation may be indulged in to any
degiee without fear of injury to the trees,
vines or vegetables, or t he risk of getting
the ground in bad condition, as frequent
ly occurs on land less favored.
Ourwater rights are unsurpassed. We
own and control almost all the water in
Lytle creek, the fourth largest stream in
Southern California, besides which we
have a large scope of artesian water
bearing land where we have thirty fine
flowing wells emptying their sparkling
waters into pipes which conduct it to the
rich lands below for irrigation, and to
our streets for protection against fire,
and to our dwellings for domestic uses.
We are boring more artesian wells con
stantly, never failing to secure a fine flow
of water, so that we have no hesitancy
in saying that we have a great abundance
of water for all of our rich lands.
Of the 211,000 acres originally pur
chased we have sold about 0000 acres at
$200 per acre, which leaves us about
20,000 acres yet to be disposed of.
For the past two years but little land,
comparatively speaking, has beensoldin
Southern California, on the
depression in the money market, and the
collapse of our boom, but now we think
we see the dawn of an era of prosperity,
such as has never been known in this
country, and in order to attract the at
tention of the world to onrsuperior loca
tion and lands, we have reduced the
price to a figur '>clow the price of the
cheapest, agricultural lands in this
country, and propose to sell about 2000
acres to actual settlers and people who
will improve the land, at $75 to $100 per
acre, with 20 and 25 per cent off for im
provements made within one year from
purchase, making the land but $tio to
$75 per acre to the man who in good faith
improves the land, and on terms within
the reach of all, to-wit: $10 per acre
cash on delivery of contract, balance in
three equal payments, due in two, three
and four years, at 8 per cent, interest.
Think of it! The best orange lands at
$60 and $75 an acre. Go all around us
and ask the price of land not so good as
ours. At Riverside on the south, at
Redlands and Highlands on the east and
northeast of us, all famous orange pro
ducing districts, t he price of unimproved
lands ranges from *250 to $500 per acre,
and foi orchards five years old from $1000
to $2000 per acre are being paid, and
they are well worth the money invested.
The water for irrigating these lands is
furnished under the "Wright Irrigation
Law" of this state, and costs the land
owner only $2 to (4 per acre per annum.
