Considerable inwre.s is being magi.
fested in this country on the cultia
tion of zhiushrooms. One editor of.a
leading journal has fitted up a case near
Glen Cove, L. L, at a cost of $8,000 fer
the purpose. The spawn used in the
United States Is that obtained at the
feed stores, in the shape of bricks. The
bricks are broken into pieces the size of
hickory nuts, and placed in holes made
by a dibble, some six Inches apart each
way. In three or four weeks the spawn
will have covered the bed, and in a few
weeks the mushrooms will be large
enotigh to pick, and the beds will last
from tour Lo six months. The industry
is one la which there is a promising re
turn for the outlay in its development
in the United States. Much the greater
part of the mushroom product which
goes to su, )ly the markets of world
comes from abandoned portions of the
stone and plaster quarries under the
suburbs of Paris, and at other places in
France. In the department of the Seine
alone, In which Paris is situated, are
some3,000 stone quarries,the abandoned
parts of which are used by some 250
growers, producing, on an estimate,
twenty-five tons of mushrooms daily,
or to the value of $2,000,000 per annum.
The eultivation of the mushroom in
these caves, is an Interesting example
of what may be accomplished Where
skill and industry are given to the
work, although the natural resources
for its prosecution are of the most
meager character. These caves are
from twenty-five to 160 feet below the
surface and are entered trough pit holes
by climbing down a ladder made by
thrusting rounds through a pole fixed
upright. At the bottom of these pits
or entrances the passages radiate in
different directions to the caves. At
convenient points piles ofl manure and
siftings from the debris of the stone
cuttings are piled and undergo prepara
tion for the beds. When In proper
condition, the beds-some twenty
inches in depti-are placed in rows all
over the bottom of the cave, with just
a narrow passage between to facilitate
the work of gaLering. New beds are
continually in preparation to take the
place of the exhausted ones, and the
cropping goes On uninterruptedly. The
general practice In obtaining spawn is
to use so much of [n entire iresh bed
when I t begins to show the growth, as
is necessary each day, which gives a
product several days earlier than when
the dry dorn ..nt spawn is used. The
shafts or openings to the surface are
made numerous enough to give perfect
ventilation both for the health of the
mushroom and the workmen. Strong
drafts and sudden changes ot tempera
tures are guarded against by trap-doors.
The nushroons are gathered daily at
a very early hour in the morning, when
the mushrooms large enough tor use
are seized and given a slight twist to
clear them front contact with any others
not fully grown, and removed with the
Yosomito Creek Glacier.
Tho broad many-fountained glacier
to which tile basin of Yosemite creek
belonged was about fourteen miles In
length by four in with, and in many
places was not less than a thousand
feet in depth. Its principal tributaries
issued from lofty amp~hithleatres laid
well back among tile northtern spurs of
the Iloflman range. T'hese at first ipur
sued a westerly course; then, uniting
with each other and absorbing a series
of small a ffluents, from the Tuolumne,
divided the trunk thus formed, swept
round to the south in a magnifieent
curve, and poured Its ice Into Yosemte t
in cascades two miles wide. This broad
glacier formed a kind of wrinkled ie
cloud. As it grew older, It became
more regular and river-like; encifrcling
pecaks overshaudowved its upper foun
t ainis, rock Islets rose at Intervals
among its shal lowing currents, and its

creeping slowly back Into tihe shelter
of their fountain shadows, continued
to live and work independen tly, spread
ing morailne soil for gardens, scooping
basins for lakeicts, and leisurely com
pleting the sculpture of their fountains.
TIhese also hlave at last vanished, anld
the wvhole basin la no0w full of light.
Forests flourish luxuriantly over all
its broad moraines, lakes and meadows
nestle0 among its domes, and a thousantid
flowery gardens are outspread along
its streams. WVhen we walk the path
ways of tile Yosemite glaciers and~
contomphlate their separate works--the
