" The population of California is still
small. One million and a quarter is all
this state's census gave as the number
of inhabitants. There will be homes for
justas many as may choose to come and
work their way. The great danger is
that the warm climate and the ease with
which the soil gives a return will make
the people too lazy. The young genera
tion springing np at the present is not
as energetic as their, forefathers, from
whatever country they came. Times
have been too easy for the old folks-if
they did not make any money through
labor they did so in trading, and as a
last and most important resource they
can fall back upon their real estate and
turn into money what the. emigrants are
willing to buy. The estates are too
large altogether at present, and the
more they are cut up the better it
will be. V
The man who comes here ought to
know a trade, and be a handy man all
around. He should be content to work
for other people for a time until he gets,
accustomed to the ways of this climate.
And he should work at the wages which
the trade unions have established. As
he works for other people he has the best
opportunity to watch his chance without
^ running any risk.-Jackson (Cal.) Cor.
The Size of Solomon's Temple.
Solomon's Temple, as described in the
Scriptures, would not be regarded as a
very imposing structure in this day and
age of the world. Its length was 107
feet, breadth 36 feet, and it was 54 feet
in height, with' a portico or veranda 88
feet long and 18 feet wide. We have
privat J houses that overshadow such an
unpretending, structure.-St. Louis Re~
Not a Nourishing Diet.
An old Scotch servant attached to
. the household of the famous British
logician, Sir William Hamilton, was as
proud of his master's fame as if it had
been his own, and, having picked up a
few of Sir William's technical words
and phrases, brought them into play on
every possible occasion. '
One day a gentleman who was fond
of drawing out old John for the amuse
' ment of the company said to bim, with
an engaging air:
"1 suppos?, John, now that you've
lived so long*with such a-great reasoner
as Sir William, you are quite able to
conduct an argument yourself'"
"Weel, I winna say sae muckle as
that," Teplied the cid Scotchman, with
the modesty of true genius, "but if I
. canna conduct an airgyment, I'm think
In I could draw an inference."
"Could you? Let us see, then? There's
an Eastern proverb, you know, about
the wild ass snuffing up the east wind.
Now what inference would you draw
Fora moment old Johu looked non
plussed, as well he might, and then a
gleam of sly humor twinkled in the cor
ner of his dark gray eye, aiid he an
swered, with a grim chuckle:
'iAweel, the inference that 1 wad
'draw from that wad be that he might
annff a lane timo bofore he grew fat!"
With all its novel modern powers and
practical sense I am forced to admit that
tho purely scientific brain is miserably
mechanical; it seems to have become a
splendid sort of self directed machine,
an incredible automaton, grinding on
wi Sh its analysis or constructions. But
foi pore sentiment, for all that spon
taneous Greek waywardness of fancy,
for the temperature, of passion and the
subtler thrill of ideality, you might as
well look to a wrought iron derrick.

Skill In the Wrist.
lb is wonderful what a part the wrist
plays in exercises in which physical skill
ano delicacy are required. After a man
learns to play billiards well enough to
be familiar with the cushions and the
English, the important thing to cultivate
is his stroke. It ts- the hardest thing
about billiard playing to get-4-* good
stroke, and sometimes the greatest play
ers "fall down" because they lose con
trol of it. Now, the stroke wholly der
pends on th?-action'of the wrist. Jake.
Schaeffer, or any good player,will make
a si rot of' seven cushions with less ap
parent force than a beginner will exert
in getting three. This is due to the su
perior .wrist movement.
It 's the same way with violin playing.
The quality and touch all depend on
wrist manipulation. So with curving a
baseball. Great pitchers always work a
strong wrist movement oivthe ball as it
leaves the; hand.. If ihey didn't it
wouldn't curve at all.-St., Louis Globe
Storks Are Queer Creatures.
The owner of a house near Berlin
found a single egg in the nest ct a pair
of starks, built on the chimney, and sub
stituted for it a gooses egg, which in
due time was hatched, and produced a
gosling instead of the expected storkling.
The male bird was thrown into the great
est excitement by this event, and finally
flew away. The female, however, re
main ad on the nest and c on tin u ed to care
for ti e' changeling as though! it were her
own offspring. On the morning of thc
fourth day the male reappeared accom
panied by nearly 600 storks, which held
a. mass meeting in an adjacent field.
The assembly, we are informed, was ad
. dressed by several speakers, each orator
pos tii g himself on the same spot before
beginning his harangue. These delibera
tions and discussions occupied nearly
the entire forenoon, when suddenly the
mee ti.ig broke up, and all the storks
pounced upon the unfortunate female
and her supposititious young one, killed
them both, and, after destroying the
poll ut sd nest, took wing and departed
and were never seen there again.-At?

latch, thu discoverer of the Whitlatch
TJnion mine, nearTHelena, led a typical
western rainer's life. The mine in ques
tion is now owned in England and has
produced. $20,000,000 in gold. After Jim
Whitlatoh had sold the property for
$1,500,000. ho went to New York "to
make as much money as Vanderbilt"
He was a raretreatto Wall street, which
fattened on him, and in one year let him

He returned to Montana, began "pros
pecting'' again and discovered a -mine
for which he got $250,000. He went to
Chicago to rival Mr. Potter Palmer in
wealth and returned just as he did from
New York-"flat strapped," as he woald
have expressed it He made still an
other fortune and went to San Francisco,
where he died a poor man.
. Another Lewis and Clarke county
mine-the Dram Lummon-provides an
other such story, lt was discovered by
an Irish immigrant named Thomas
Cruse. Although he owned it, he could
not get a sack of flour on credit He
sold it tt> an English syndicate for

For'instance, the following were some
of the more common and every day and
all day long noises: Som? of th? shop
keepers still kept up the custom of hav
ing a prentice outside bawling an invi
tatioji to buy! buy! buy!
To thia day butchers in dare martel
cry out at their stalls all day long:
"Rally up, ladies!. Rally up! Buy!
buy! buy!" In the streets of private
houses there passed a never ending pro
cession of those who bawled. things fer
sale. Here are a few of the things they'
bawled; I am conscious that it is a very'
.imperfect list. There were those who
offered to do things-mend chairs, grind
knives, solder pots and pans, buy rags
or kitchen stuff, rabbit skins, hair or
rusty swords, exchange old clothes and
wigs', mend old china, cut wires-this
excruciating, rasping operation was ap

things of domestic use-lace, ribbons,
almanacs, ink, small coal, sealing wax,
wood to cleave, earthenware, spigots,

brooms in exchange for old shoes, things
of horns, Holland socks, woolen socks

straps and the thousand and one things
which are now sold in shops.

animal and his dogs and his drum, .the
sweep shouted from the housetop, the
ballad singer bawled in th? road, the
tumbler and the dancing girl ?et " .np
their pitch with fife and drum. Nobody
minded how much noise was made, ic
the smaller streets the good wives sat
-with, open doors, running in and out,
gossiping over their work; they liked the
noise; they liked this perambulating
market-it made the street lively, it
brought the neighbors out to-talk and
it pleased the baby. Then the wagons
went ponderously grinding over the
round stones of the road, the carts rum
bled, the brewers' sledges growled, the
chariot rattled, the drivers quarreled,
cursed and fought.

Why Many Treatments Fall.
"The fault is not of the art, but of the
patient," is the phrase that may be ap
plied to those diseases in which the most
correct measures taken under favorable
circumstances fail to accomplish their
purpose, . because the patient himself
does not or cannot co-operate with them.
No treatment can relieve the smoker
from his.throat catarrh, so long as he
persists in his habit.
This aspect of the case ia especially
pertinent to the nervous disorders which
are one of the growing scourges of bur
age. Incapacity and vacillation, the
force of outer influences or the pressure
ot business too often intervene to inter
rupt a cure which was otherwise fairly
possible.-Professor H. Nothnagel in

poor she omits the ile, which is an ap
