A Fitting Tribute.
The Salt Lake City Tribune
pays this tribute to the deceased:
A few weeks since The Tribune
made mention of the celebration, by
his familv, on March 3rd, of the
itoth birthday of Marcus 1?. O.--born.
He acknoledged the notice
in his own hand writing, and it was
as clear of brain, as firm, clear and
regular i:i penmanship as though the
note had been written by some one
40 vcars vounger than Mr. ()s
born. At that time his physical!
declared that all his organism seem
ed sound, and he knew no reason
why his life should not be spared for
yet a score of years. Hut it seem
the keen eves of the physical! could
not distinguish the mildew that
was over all. It was another case
like that of the one-horse shay,
every part was jest as strong cv. the
rent. " ami yesterday it all crumbled
to dust. A grand old man was Mr.
Osborn. He was a most capable
man almost to the last,
and for seventy of his ninety
years his life was devoted to making
others happier and better. He lived
a blameless life, ami a life so tilled
wit h good deeds that had each one
be-n a feather in his dying couch,
they would have made it softer than
down. For many vcars he has been
waiting the summons that came yes
terday, out it has lieen a clieertul
waiting, and there has never been
;i moment when he lias not been
readv and willing to go. lie seemed
always in the same frame of mind
as that expressed by the late Hishop
John Sharp on his last birthdav.
which, as we remember the words.
was: ' am thankful mat my me
lias been sparred so long, and when
mv tinal call shall come, 1 shall be
thankful, too, for that." It is a
great thing to go down to the grave
in a calm like that, and intensities
the belief that when men generally
better understand the plan of life
there will be no more apprehension
at the approach of death than there
now is at the coming of death's wel
come brother sleep.
The Most Interesting Thing In America.
An English traveler passed throuph his
city on the way to London. lie had epont
three months in the United States seeing
things. A friend asked what was the most
interesting thing lie saw in the country,
and he answered without hesitation that it
was a mule! Then he explained that he had
visited certain mines where mules were
used to haul the tramcars, and their won
derful pntience and intelligence bad made
en him a deep impression.
Some of the tunnels were so low that the
animals had to hold their heads down and
partly stoop to go through, bnt there was
never any trouble. He pointed out a char
acteristic of the mule that makes him un
like a horse. Many Americans have noticed
it. If a horse touches his ears in going un
der a low bridge or through a tnnnel he
will invariably throw his head up and re
ceive a hard knock. When a mule's ears
touch anything his head goes down. In
some parts of this country it is a high com
pliment to a man to eay that he has as
much sense as a mule. New York Tribune.
African Fruit Kulned by Insects.
Half measures are of no avail in deal
ing with the parasitic fly ceratitis that
scourgo of the fruit farmers in South
Africa. Mr. A llliam Tuck of Grahams-
town, who expresses this opinion, is a
high authority on fruit farming. Ho
tells nr- that in the eastern province
they can never depend on any fruit ex
cept grapes coming to ripeness without
damage from fly larva?, though where,
owing to high altitude 2,0ui) feet to
3,000 and over thero arc sharp frosts
every winter such fruits as can stand
the cold are fairly free from the plague,
because the larv cannot tide over the
It sometimes happens that scarcely a
peach ripens in the whole province with
out a worm inside. Mr. Tuck is for he
roic remedies. He is decidedly of opin
ion that if a general and perfect destruc
tion of all the fruit grown in any one
year could be brought about by the com
mon consent of the whole body of fruit
growers the fly might be stamped out,
but he mournfully confesses that the
universal system of "go as you please,"
added to the isolated life of cape farms,
rendersany such united action of a year's
self denial for the common good quite
impracticable. London News.
Why Snow Fulls In Flakes.
Snow falls to the earth in flakes be
cause it is water solidified in starlike
crystals, each snowflake being usually
made up of several crystals, which are
excessively light on account of the large
quantity of air among the frozen parti
cles. The snow crystals arise from the
slow passage of the water vapor of
clouds, when the temperature falls be
low freezing point, into the solid condi
tion, the fairylike transformation taking
place by the molecule or smaltesa inde
pendent particles of the water grouping
themselves with the utmost mathemat
ical regularity around different centers.
Each crystal of enow, as of anything
else, is therefore a more or less perfect
geometrical solid. The most complete
enow crystals are formed in a clear at
mosphere, where there Is nothing to re
tard the gradual process of crystalliza
tion or molecular construction. Bain,
on the other hand, being a liquid, falls in
drops. London Tit-Bits.
