The I'nion this morning takes oc
casion to interest itsi If at this late
day in the matter of (he bids on the
new school building md says that
the board has never expressed a de
sire to know who tlse sub-contractors
are." It is hardly w nth the while
to make reply to this silly state
ment, as had the I'l ion taken the
trouble to inquire it would find that
the names of the sub-contractors
were written on the 1 id of Sievers &
Anderson, and. if as he Union states
it made no difference to the board
who the sub-eontr: ctors were it
seems passing strange, that certain
members of the boart should go to
Volk & Co. and inteiest themselves
in behalf of McCon ichie & McFar
lane. It was the placing of the
name of the sub-contractors on the
bid of Sievers & Anderson that
Jonahed" it. The I'nion's position,
however, will occasion no wonder.
It is invariably found opposing the
public view of matters.
SOME ODD THINGS IN NATURE.
Inexplicable Operations for th Consider
ation of reople Who "Know It All."
There are processes of nature -which,
seem as inexplicable as the operation
of the mind. Why doss sugrar always
crystallize in a certair. way and salt in
a certain other way? An infallible
test for some mincraU is their form of
crystallization. Why does the mys
terious movement of the sap in a plant
proceed with such absolute reg-ularity
that in the leaf, say, c f a varieg-ated
geranium a little cole ring: matter of
one shade is dropped i t one point and
a little of another sh:ide at another
point, with never a mistake? Why
does nature, or rather how
does nature tell tl e wheat that
is grown in northern latitudes
that it must produce many seeds to
each plant so that son.e of them may
survive the rigror of ti e winter? Why
do the plants of the tropics expend all
their forces in leaf and gorgeous
Cower an.l yield only l few seeds as if
they knew that in the genial climate
where they flourish cery seed stood a
good chance of growing? Did the
plants learn th. s- things themselves,
as the mice learned that it was no use
to be born with tails, and the short
horn cows learned tin t it was no use
to be born with a disposition to give a
large flow of milk, or the trotting
horse learned that he ought to be born
with a trotting instinct? These are
difficult questions, good questions to
be thought over by i.hose very excel
lent people who are satisfied that they
"know it alL"
