of other companies' goods, that it would not pay anyone to use other

I say to be a fact. I made a test on five acres. I used on one half
the land your fertilizer and on the other half another company's fertil

For One Whole Day the Rocky
Precipice Was Dry.
THE WATER CEASED TO FLOW
This Curious Phenomenon Occu.red on
March 31, 1848-Terrified the People
in the Victnity-Return of the Tor
rent and the Cause of the Stoppage.
In the early spring of 1848 occurred
a natural phenomenon so strange, so
sudden and so stupendous that the old
er inhabitants of western New York
still speak of it with awe and wonder.
This phenomenon was nothing else
than the running dry of Niagara falls.
The story is seldom recounted now,
but it was a nine days' wonder for the
whole country when it appeared in
the newspapers. FQr the first time in
history the roar of the grandest cata
ract in America was hushed.
In the early morning of March 31,
1848, people living in the vicinity of
the falls were awakened by a peculiar
hush, as startling in its suddenness
and intensity as the most thunderous
explosion could have been. Many
dressed and hastened outdoors, urged
by a conviction that something appall
ing had happened or was about to
happen. Some thought the end of
the world was at hand. Others imag
ined that they had grown suddenly
deaf. Still others thought that the
hush preceding a terrific hurricane had
fallen upon the air. ,All were oppress
ed with a feeling of profound awe and
It was soon discovered, however,
that the cessation of the roar of the
falls was the sole cause of this com
mon panic. As the dim light of early
morning grew stronger the people
were able to see the almost bare preci
Pice of the falls, over which but a
short time before thousands of tons
of water had been pouring. Only
here and there small streams, con
stantly growing smaller, now trickled
down the face of the towering wall.
Above the falls, instead of the rush
ing, foaming river, only a naked chan
nel, studded with black and jagged
rocks, appeared. The bed of the river
was practically exposed from shore to
shore, except for small streams, like
mountain brooks, running slowly to
the verge of the precipice. The spec
tators could hardly believe their'eyes.
Some remarkable feats were per
formed on that day when Niagara ran
dry. People walked from the Canadian
side of the river, along the edge of
the frightful precipice, nearly as far
as Goat island on the American side
and never even wet their feet. Some
went xpinoring in the river bed above
the 'a~is and discovered a number of
ent gun barrels, lost probably by
sportsmen up the river in long gone
days and still after the rotting away
of their stocks slowly forced down
stream by the current. Caves and
curious formations in the rocks were
discovered, the existence of which had
never been suspected before.
All that day, March 31,1848, Niagara
falls remained dry, and people who re
mained up until late at night, expect
ing to see a change, went to bed with
out witnessing it. But in the early
morning of April 1 the familiar thun
der of the great cataract was once
more heard, -and every one knew that
the mysteriously drained river bed
was again pouring its fidod over the
Now for the explanation of this
strange phenomenon. It proved to be,
after all, very simple. The winter of
1847 and 1848 had been one of extreme
severity. Ice of such thickness had
never been known as formed on Lake
Erie that season. When the break-up
came, toward the end of March, a
strong northeast wind was blowing,
which piled the great fields of Ice in
floes and then in banks as high as
miniature icebergs. Toward night on
March 30) the wind suddenly changed
to the opposite direction and increased
to a terrific gale, which hurled back
the piled up ice and drove it into the
entrance of Niagara river with such
force that a huge and almost impene
trable dam was formed. For a whole
day the source of the river was stop
ped up, and the stream was drained
of its supply. By the morning of the
31st the liver was practically dry, and
thus for twenty-four hours the roar of
Niagara falls was stifled. Then in the
early morning of April 1 the ice
pack gave way under the tremendous
pressure from above, and the long re
strained volume of water rushed
down and reclaimed its own.-Ex
Few Beds -in Bagdad.
About 60 per cent of Bagdad's pop

people rest on blankets spread on the
floors of their houses in the winter
and on the roofs in the summer. Owing
to the excessive heat of these regions
sleep is made impossible elsewhere
than on the roof or in the open gar
dens. It Is an interesting sight to see
how the women at sunset emerge from
their houses to prepare the evening
meal on the roof and spread the bed

climate Is very dry, there is little to

Antiquity of Death Masks.
Although there Is no mention of
leath masks In the works of Homer or
n any of the later classics, modern ex
lorers have satisfied themselves that
n the early burials of all nations it
was the custom to cover the heads and
yodies of the dead with sheets of gold
so pliable that they took the impress
>f the form, and not infrequently,
when in the course of cerituries the
~mblmed flesh had shriveled or fall
m away, the gold retained the exact

Difficulties That Beset the Werk of
the Salvers. J
What it means to salve a wreck is n
something that few outside of prac- ti
tical seamen can properly appreciate. F
The wreck is -, ponderous, unwieldy a
mountain of steel and oak. weighing 4
between 3,000 and 12,000 tons, often le
dangerous for any vessel to approach, d
and this must be lifted bodily and b
floated from the decks of pitching, pn- si
stable scows and barges. The wreck
may be submerged beneath fifteen or "
thirty' feet, of water and so stove in i
that divers must go down and effect
temporary repairs before It can be
raised. - It may be a wreck so shat- tl
tered that it is not worth raising, so it
that the wrecker's work consists mere- i
ly in blowing up the hulk and re- 0
moving It as a menace to navigation. ss
Or the vessel may be fairly intact, but
sunk too deep to make attempt at b
raising advisable, the wrecker's work
consisting in salving valuable cargo.
Often the wreck is one not submerged
at all. A ship may have run on to a
reef, where it lies, nose on a crag and -
stern afloat, rising and falling on the
ocean swell, pounding, poundin'g and S
pounding until the very ocean bottom
drones and she is gradually broken-to
pieces. Or, again, the wreck may be
that of a steamer which has pointed
its nose shoreward in a fog, finding a T
beach, plowing a furrow through the
yielding sand and never coming to a
halt until it Is stuck fast all but high
and dry, a helpless victim to the next J
storm that comes screeching up the
coast to pile breakers against her and J
crowd her even higher upon the beach. C

TRIED9 TO BE JOCOSE1
Snicker Was In a Jovial Mood
and Hungry as Well.
BUT HE SPOILED HIS MEAL.
'By the Time He Managed to Order
His Breakfast the Glow of Genial
Good Humor He Tried to Shed
Around Him Had Turned to Gloom.
Mr. Snicker is well known in his
home town as the most facetious man
In seventeen counties. His method of
expressing what ideas he has is en
tirely along lines of pure jocosity, but
now and-then his wit falls upon unap
preciative ears. On a recent visit to
New York Mr. Snioker arrived rather
early in the morning, and the pangs of
hunger would brook so little delay
that he went immediately upon his
arrival to a prominent hotel in the
vicinity of the station for his break
"Good morning, Henri," he chortled
In his usual salubrious manner to the
waiter as the latter hung his hat on a
book over his table. "Has the butcher
"Ze what, sir?" asked the waiter,
with a puzzled look on his face, for he
was not used to Snickers.
"The butcher," said Snicker, with a
merry wink in his left eye. "You know

thoughi: perha "
"Wait one r .at, sir," said the
waiter, his perpse ity growing deeper.
"I will bring ze head waiter, sir."
"Oh, never mfind," Snicker began,
but the waiter had departed to return
in about three minutes with the head
"What is it, sir?" asked the latter,
with a great show of civil interest.
"Oh, nothing," returned Snicker
rather sheepishly. "I just asked Henri
here If the butcher had arrived yet,
fearing that possibly"
"The butcher, sir?" repeated the
head waiter, like his subordinate, very
"Yes," said Snicker, ,with a faint
smile. which he hoped the head waiter
would find contagious. "I was only
"Wait till I find ze superintendent,"
said the head waiter courteously. "I
have no doubt we can accommodate
monsieur if we can only find out what
it is that he wants. I will send for
Snicker again started in to explain
the mere facetious bearing of his in
quiry, but the head waiter, too, had
sped away in search of a superior offi
cer who might be expected to be equal
to this new and unexpected emer
Several omnibus boys and Snicker's
waiter as well were dispatched to the
kitchen and elsewhere to find him, but
apparently without success. Five, ten,
fifteen minutes elapsed, and Snicker
began to feel that it did not -really pay
to be as funny as he could under all
Finally, however, the head waiter
returned and courteously .explained
that the superintendent had not yet
arrived at his post of duty, but that he
had telephoned up to the office for the
manager of the hotel, who, 'he assured
him, would be down in a very few mo
"He Is rather busy at this time of
the morning, sir," he vouchsafed, "but
he said he would be down right
"Well, rm sorry," said Snicker rue
fully. "You'd better head him off ig
you can. You see, when I asked if the
butcher had come yet, it was only
meant as a joke"
"Ah, here is the .manager," inter
ripted the head waiter as a tall, Im
pressive gentleman with a majestic
front loomed up in the dining room
door and made his way across to
Snicker's table. "'This Is the gentle
man, 'Mr. Pingletoni," the head waiter
added when the manager had reached

ager breezily. "I hope there is no

you waiting, but this is the busy end
of the day with me getting things
