In the "old fatherland" is the se-called
"Spreewald," the Forset of the Spree,

lage is a little Venice, every house a
little island, and these islets are con

allow beats te pass under them.
Most of the houses, with their barns
and Btables, rest en piles, and there is
generally a strip of artificial terra
flrmii either In front or at the rear of
every building. By means of these
land strips and of the bridges the slen

Washington. The recent extreme
cold weather in the southwestern parr,
of the United States has produced one
extremely curious result: The Salten
sea, which is produced by the over
flow of the Colerado river into a de
pression in southern California, has
been frozen ever te a great depth. The
Southern Pacific railroad, which has
been greatly embarrassed by the flood fleod floed
ing of its tracks occasioned by the ris
ing of the water, has moved its tracks
te the Ice, and Is new running ever
The water of the lake being salt,
it has, in freezing, deposited upon the
surface, quantities of salt, which, by
the action of the desert winds, has col
lected in windrows upon the Ice. This
has given rise te a new Industry, or
rather te the revival of an old Indus
try. Thousands of cattle have been
driven te this neighborhood from the
great ranges te the north and south,
and the business of slaughtering and
meat packing Is being carried en upon
an enormous scale, the salt and ice
for the purpose being right at hand.
Hew long this will last Is of course
In the meantime the geed people of

ing their skating, a pastime which
they have net enjoyed since the found
