On the northern ooast of California,

'he Klamath River, is one of the most
1iteresting natural formations to be

Biig Lagoon. Here the coast, which
runs north and south up to this point,
takes a sharp turn inland, bordered
by high hills, running toa distance of
ibout three miles, then turning out

bay until the bar has raised up out of

Water Proof Masonry.
What was at first cons-dered a,
oubtful experiment, namely, the
se of coal tar as a means of render
g masonry impervious to water, es
ecialy in positions exposed to di
ict contact with the latter, has
roved a practically valuable resort.
ised as a coating for masonry built ~
p of very norous stone, tar renders ~
Squite impervious, even at a depth
f some fifty feet of water, and, ac
arding to the opinion of those whose ~
rperience has been extensive with ~
1, the article should be utilized in C
I pubic buildings particnlarly those ~
esigned for the preser'ration of works ~
tart, the dissolvig action of water, ~
en upon mortisr of superior cquality, C
eng well known, and also the un
vorable effect of the exudation of e
ater charged with lime salts from ~
1e water. Two methods of using
-ie tar are named, namely, in a boil
ig state in one or several layers,
is being suitable for surfaces ex
ased to the air; or it may be made
>flame up before using, this being
ppropriate to surfaces which have to e
a covered up. It Is stated that when a
iling coal tar Is employed in three 1
>ats on masonry the result is a black
id very brilliant varnish, which e
rfectly resists the action of frost, f
ater, and sun, being likewise abso- t
tey impervious; and the tendency y
the black coating to absorb heat
ay be overcome by white-dusting t
ie whole before the tar is quite dry. '5

The other morning, a tall, stout

,d every indication of poverty in his
parel, entered the Riggs House and
proached the desk where Proprietor
)e Witte was standing.
"I have not had any thing to eat
cept a sandwich yesterday morning

embed with weakness. "sCan'1
ou let me have something?"
Mir. De Witte gave him a card to

raciously disposing of a plentiful
eakfast. When he had finished he
consciously dipped his fingers in
