An old friend, who has just return

Stutes.tollsme.saysaSt. Louis Repub
lic man, that there is an unexplored
region in the State of Washington
which is as unknown astheinteriorof
Africa. It is the country shut in by
the Olympic Mountains and includes
an area of about 2,500 square miles,
being some 400 miles greater in ox
tent than the whole State of Dela
This track le.--s waste, to the postive
knowledgo of old residents of the
State, has never been trodden by the

That Lake Which is Forming in the

sage is a wonderful thing. It is in
the southwestern end of California,
butting up against the Colorado river
and the Arizona. The Southern Pa
cific road crosses it. One hundred
miles of its track is in the desert.
There is adsolutely no evidence of
life about it except just in the centre
at a point over 200 feet below the sea
level, where a company mines salt.
There has been no water or vegeta
tion of any kind in the desert. Even
the trains have to haul tank cars
to carry water for the engines
across this sand bed. They also caf-
The Indians fear the spot as the
Javans do their "Poison Valley,"
and say that no man, white or red,
can cross the great basin Inclosed by
the Olympic Mountains and live to

wonderland is not poisonous; neither
It is simply a bed of loose and ever
shifting white sand 100 miles across,
sometimes the sands blow up ten feet
deep on the railroad track from
which it has to be shoveled off, and
again blows out from under the track,
allowing it to sink. It has been
known to blow so hard in the desert
that the sand would actually cut

this great silent wilderness is. The
most generally accepted theory in re-
gardto.it is that it consists of great
valleys stretching from the inward
slopes of the mountain to a great cen
tral basin. '
This story is supported by the "fact
that, although the country around
has abundant rain, all of the streams
flowing toward the four points of the
compass are insignificant and rise
only on the outer slopes of the range,
none appearing to drain the great
tract shut in by the mountains.
This fact supports the theory that the
streams flowing from the inner
slopes of the mountains feed a great
interior lake. Rut what drains the
lake? It must have an outlet; can it
be that this outlet is through a sub
terranean river which emplies into
the ocean, strait, or souud?
Evidently there is room for much
exploration and a chance to make
many new discoveries in Washing
ton's great "unexplored regions."

Affixing the Great Seal.
The Secretary of State has no right
to afllx the Great Seal of the United
States to any paper without a "war
rant" from the President authorizing
him to do so. This warrant is al
ways filed with the document so
sealed, and reads as follows:
"I authorize and direct the Secre
tary of State to cause the Great Seal
of the United States to be affixed to
whatever the document may be
dated this day, signed by me, and for
so doing this shall be his warrent.
'President of of the United Slates."
The Great Seal is affixed to nothing
but treaties, proclamations, commis
sions, pardons and pa&sports. The
old seal, which had been in use since
the foundation of the Government,
was worn out and replaced by a new
one in the early part of 188G. It is a
curious fact that the old one which
was used so long was imperfect and
never did answer to the description
set down in the statutes. Although
f At. .
using me seal is supposed to be a
solemn affair, and the penalty for its
improper use is so tremendous, it is
left in charge of a lerk, just like any
I other piece of furniture, and it is
doubtful if the Secretary sees it twice
a year. During the early days of the
Government it was guarded with
mucn vigilance, as its appearance
upon any document was known to
give that document the torce of law,
but now the people look to the
newspapers and not to a piece of
parchment for their information.

Ingersoll on the Farmers.
Everybody and everything takes
toll from the farmers. No wonder
that they want to dosomething. I do
not think the planks in the Cincin
nati platform can be fastened togeth
er and held in place. The farmers
ought to know that these resolutions
passed by political conventions raise
neither corn nor wheat, neither can
they effect prices. I do not believe
that the government can make money
by law any more than it can make
good crops by law. The government
can't support the people. The peo
ple have got to support the govern
ment. The government is a perpetual
I ask this one question: If the
government can make money, why
should it collect taxes? Why not
make what it needs and stop bother
ing the people?
Still I am glad the farmers are dis
cussing these questions. They will
find out what the government can do
and can not do.

A Wonderful Horse.
A News reporter this morning
heard of a wonderful horse in the
stable of Grocer W. M. Brooks, and
called to see it.
The reporter had heard that when
ever the horse happened to see a
fence rail lying in the road, it would
pick it up and rerlace it on the fence.
Also when the horse would see a
rock in the street, it would pick it up
and carry it to a fence corner.
In fact whenever . the horse hap
pened to sec anything in disorder, it
would restore it to order.

It is related that Artemus Ward
when he first tramped into Philadel
phia, thus accosted a citizen: "Say,
mister, can you tell me where I can
get a square meal for a quarter?"
"Portonlw " rpnliprl tho nhlio-intr riti-
zen, "at that resturant yonder on the
corner," and started to pass on. "But
hold on, mister," said Ward, "one
thing more now can you tell me
where in the h 1 1 can get the quar
ter?" And so it would be with many
who are now grumbling about hard
times and advocating an increase in
the currency ns a panacea for their
ills. If the circulation was five times
as great as it now is, they would still
be withont money and in debt.
Wealth is the product of labor, and
if the country was Hooded with mon
ey, none of it would find lis way in
to their empty pockets unless they
had something to offer in exchange
for it. Like Artemus, they would
still bo lacking the quarter.
