CATTLE There was hardly more than a
Bnturday's run of cattle hero today nnd
about a Bnturday's conditions prevailed
Huyers were not anxious for supplies, but
bought up tho few loads that were onVreJ
without material change from yestorday s
prices. . , ,
Heculpls Included two tars of cornfed
tenrs. which Hold for JS.&0. They were nice
branded yem-llng westerns, but were In
good condition, weighing 1.033 pounds. Tho
way fat cnttle have been selling for the
last few days that sale looked a little
Mtrongor. The market has every appear
nnco of belnff In Rood Hhnpe, packers rll
being good buyerB of the better quality cf
rornfed cattle. The common stuff, of
coursp, Is generally neglected.
Thcro wero only about throe cars of cows
oti salo this morning, and they brought
stood, strong prices. Them was not enough,
however, to mako a test of tho market.
Huyers, however, all seemed to be looking
for pood stuff, which would undoubtedly
bring pood fining prices.
The few Blockers and feeders offered today
nold without miitcrlnl change. Yard traders
wero not at a' anxious for fresh supplier
nnd about nil that could bo said of tho
market Is that ft was nominally steady.
That would apply to all kinds of stock
cnttle. . . ,
Thero were scarcely any western cattle
hero and they sold about steady all around.

HOGS There were only about seventy
three cars of hogs on sale, but as Chicago
came 5c lover the market here opened up
weak to 2Vc lower. The demand on the
part of packers was In good shape, and, as
k result, tho market was actlvo at tho de
rllne, practically everything being sold
Nirly In the morning. Hackers complained
that they wero paying right up to Chicago
prices, but they had to have the hogs. The
hulk today Bold tit Jt.02mf4.63. against 31.62
64.67H yestorday. A few of the better loads
old around I4.fi7g4.70, but thero were
fewer In proportion at those prices and
more at J4.62V4 than was the case yester
day. The laet end of the market was
hardly ns good, packers btddlnR J4.62& for
moBt everything. Itepresentatlvo Bales:

especially for deferred, owing to the satls-
tactory uiviuenus. Americans opened nrm,
but became wildly excited and moro busi

became evident that the nubile was en
gaged In profit taking,. however, and quota
tions wero lowerea an rouna. operators
wero nnxlous about the effect of the elec
tion In tho United States, bring quite un
certain as to tho result. Grand Trunks
wore firm nnd then became easier. There
was a decline In American securities on
the Stock exchange late In the afternoon,
due to English and continental selllnir.
There wero no orders from New York.

GREAT SALT LAKE DRYING UP
DlTornon of Water for Irrigation Seriously
. Affects the Lake Lsrel,
LOSS OF THREE FEET THIS YEAR
Interesting Sammarr ( the Lake
Surveys, .Measurements nnd Rec
ords Radical Remedies t'raed
to Have the Lake.
Oreat Salt Lake Is drying up t nn
alarmlug rate. The fall In the level of the
water this year amounts to three feet and
Is traceable to Irrigation ditches diverting
tho water of streams which formerly re
plenished the lake losses by evaporation.
Prof. Marcus E. Jones, In a letter to the
Salt Lake Tribune, points out the cause of
the alarming losses and suggests a rem
edy. He says:
"On September 1 the writer made a care
ful examination of the old Antelope Island
bar, which connects the Island with the
mainland, la order to determine more ac
curately certain facts In tho past move
ments ot the lako and to obtain data for
determining the average depth, density,
etc.. of the lake. Those who are familiar
with the history of tho lake know that on
tho actual elevation of this and the Stans
bury bars hinge our data during certain
critical periods In the paat, especially tho
height of the lako In 1849 and 1877.
"Tho first recorded observations on tho
lake were made In 1843 by Fremont. In
1849-50 Captain Staasbury surveyed and
charted It Again In 1869 the King Fortieth
Parallel party resurveyed tho lako and
charted It. In the early '70's O. K. Gilbert,
connected with the United States geolog
ical survey, began observations and sur
veys, which continued with varytag Inter
vals till 1884, when he was recalled to
Washington. In 1879 the writer began to
study the lake and has continued without
Interruption till now. In 1SS9 Gilbert pub
lished his conclusions In an elaborate
monograph.
Karly Measurements.
"In tho fall of 1849 or thereabouts Stans
bury found that It was all dry land be
tween the south point of Antelope Island
and the southern mainland with the excep
tion of a little channel six Inches deep near
the Island and about three miles from the
southern point on the eastern side. On
October 19, 1877, Gilbert tried to plat tho
sama bar by soundings while the bar was
under several feet of water and ho says
that he readily found Stansbury's llttlo
channel ot twcnty-olght years before. He
determined Its elevation to be 1.2 feet by
the Garfield zero. This, then, Is tho as
sumed elevation of the bar In 1849, nnd
Mr. Gilbert never seems to have thought
It could vary by an inch.
On October 1, 1S92, Captain Davis (not
L.) sailed over the Antelope bar In his
yacht, drawlig three and one-halt feot of
water, and found four feet of wator over
the bar In the shallowest place. The ac
tual lake reading at that day was threo
feet above the Garfield zero, a difference
of 2.2 feet. The official reading at that
time In calm weather gave a difference ot
one foot five Inches. It should be remem
bered that great care Is taken with the
official records to get the truo level In
calm weather, so that It thero Is a wind
on the day of observation tho actual read
ing Is disregarded and the average of pre
vious reeding each day for a few days be
fore and after ts taken Instead. So we are
reasonably certain that the actual level of
the bar had changed in fifteen years by
one and cne-halt feet, as the yacht could
not have gotten over the bar at all had It
been at tho same level as It was In 1877.
"On September 1, 1900, the writer found the
deepest water over the bar to be. four Inches,
with the gauge reading 1 foot 1 Inch, show
ing that the difference was then .45 foot be
t ;n the level of 1877 and 1900, or .45 foot
lower than In 1877, but It should be noted
that the shallowest place had now moved
three miles to the southwest, and Is now
near the southern end of the Island. The
old shallow spot corresponding to Gilbert's
and Stansbury's channel was about two
Inches deeper. Through the bar the water
was running at a three-mile current to the
northward; that Is, from the deep part ot
the lake toward the mouth ot the Jordan.
Density of the Water.
On September 18 the writer took a samplo
of the water from the lake after It had been
thoroughly mixed up from the deep part ot
the lake by a heavy storm and found It
went 25 per cent solid matter. This I know
to be a fair sample ot the lake wator at that
time. By applying the normal Increment
due to the fall ot the lake and adding It
to the density found by Dr. Gale In 1819 we
arrive at the conclusion that the lako In
Stansbury's time was 1 foot ft Inch higher
than Gilbert assumed It to 'be. Applying
the same reasoning to data furnished by n
sample of water taken from the lake In June,
1900, by Sheley, the bar should have been 1
foot 4V4 Inches higher than Gilbert's assump
tion, but as Sheley's sample was taken dur
ing a long calm period It may have been 1
per cent too high, as tests made by me In
the past show that dlfferenco between wator
near the shore five feet deep and water out
In the middle of the lake. Such a variance
would make a difference of a foot In tho as
sumed height of the bar, and as the dis
crepancy Is only a foot, we shall not be able
to Use the data ot Sheley, It should be
stated, however, that we do not know the
oxact date of collecting Gale'H water, and as
there was a difference In the level of the
lake that year of at least two feet, his sam
ple was probably correctly taken and cor
rectly analyzed, so that the error In the
level of the lake at that time Is probably
Gilbert's.
Water Diverted.
"If we correct the error in the lake curvo
required by our more accurato data now at
hand, we shall find that It Is not enough to
require any marked change In the curvo
nor any change In our conclusions as to the
causes of the oscillations of Great Silt
lake, which are that up to 1890 or thsre
obouts tho oscillations wero duo to cli
matic changes and that human energies
had not yet made themselves felt bo as to
be noticeable In the oscillations of tho
lake. At that time there was as much
water flowing In tho Jordan as now, as
far as can be ascertained. At that tlmo
there was a small amount of water flowing
In the Weber, more than now. (Nw there
Is practically none.) The Dear river bad
n large amount 'of water flowing In it all
the year. Since that time the great Hear
river canal has been put In operation and
has consumed an Increasing amount of
water each year, till It has completely
changed the oscillations of the lako, bo
that they do not respond to climatic In
fluences any more. The writer had hoped
ard was led to bslleve from the past history
of the lake, that the opening of tho canal
would only affect the oscillations of the lake
temporarily, but It Is now sovoral years
slnco this effect should have worn off. If It
ts ever to do so, but the lake continues to
tall alarmingly and -we have no reason to
hope that, with the canal running, tho lake
will ever regain Its old level until the an
nual rainfall exceeds nineteen Incches per
annum or more, and tho pr-bablliM-'s
against such an Increase in the rainfall nre
10 to 1. It Is almost certain that under
present conditions nnd present rainfall the
lake will eltlior dry up entirely or nearly
so, and In the near future. At this rate
there will be no bathing at Saltalr In two
years and In three years the resort will
be high nnd dry, the water of the lake will
be saturated with salt and a layer of salt
will form all over th bottom of the lake
The density ot the lake Is now 1.21 sp.
gr., or 23 per cent solid matter. The
actual saturation under normal tempera
ture ts 31.1 per cent, or a difference .of only
6 per cent. The theoretical saturation
point of puro salt Is 34 per cent. Tho re
sults hero obtained aro none of them (but
he last) theoretical, all the others have
been determined by direct experiment on
the lake woter; this Includes density or
specific gravity, solid contents, saturation
point. Many tests have been made by
now, though Interesting In finding the nver
tho writer In the past on density, covering
many years, but thoy will not be given
Alarmlna- .Ihrlnkaar.
"It wo tako a fair averagoof tho rain
fall about 1900 and now (the last few
ears), wo find there has, been an Increase
n tho normal rainfall of about two inches,
which under normal conditions should liavo
raised tho lake two feet abovo Its level
then, but there has been a fall ot tho lako
of three feet, or a total shrlnkago (duo to
artificial causes) of flvo feet. In 1S93 thcro
was an lncreaso In the rainfall of threo
Inches, which should havo raised the lako
three feot, but It actually raised It an Inch
abovo tho year before. In 1S9C there was
an lncreaso In the rainfall of six and ono
halt Inches, which should have raised tho
lako several feot, but tho lako actually
rose about three Inches. During tho
present year tho lake will fall about threo
feet. It has lost In tho last few years
8,000,000,000 tons of water that has geno
up In the air and out ot tho great basin,
novcr to return, In addition to the usual
evaporation, or enough to Irrigato 1,800
squaro miles for ono year and havo a foot
of water left over for every squaro foot
of tho whole 1,800 square miles. Fortun
ately we havo sufficient data to fix the
responsibility for this loss directly upon
those producing It.
"Tho question now Is, What are the
ptoplo of Utah lu general, and Salt Lake
City In particular, going to do about It?
The railroads of Utah aro not going to
stand Idly by and let the greatest attrac
tion of Utah dry up, without fixing the
responsibility and stopping It If there Is
any law In Utah. Salt Lake City will be
very foolish If It does not protect Itself,
for It Is the most directly concerned both
In money and health, as the exposure of
the mouth of the Jordan wilt breed sick
ness by tho sowage germs becoming dust
and being blown back Into the city by the
provalllng winds, and by the heavy alka
line storms whloh will prevail over the
dry bed of the lake and cover us with
nlkall at times.
The Remedy.
To the mind ot the writer there are but
two solutions of the problem shut up the
Bear river canal and tho extra use of the
waters of tho Wcbor, etc., or get wator
from without the great basin by a canal
from tho Snake or Green river, or both.
To close tho canal means a serious loss to
a large farming area. To stop the extra
uso of the water means distress to many
bona fide stttlers, and the whole means a
considerable loss to Utah In commerce.
The logical way to got water Into the great
basin Is to compel those who have caused
tho loss to restore It by building a canal
to bring In water from without. If this
is not done, then the city must- do It, or
the state. The loss of this water Is an
Injury to tho whole state, as it will de
crease the rainfall of the entire state, and
In the end ruin more farms than the Bear
river canal can ever benefit. Th!s Is why
the writer has for some time been quietly
trying to Interest the public In getting
water Into the great basin. It will not
benefit me except as It benefits tho state,
as 'I havo no ranch or farm to Irrigate,
nor any other special Interest that would
bo affected.
"The sources from which water can be
brought nto tho basin are probably three,
tho snake river, Green river, and Ham's
fork of the Green river. The last will be
the loast expensive, but will not furnish
enough water. The other two have an
abundance of water that will never be ap
propriated except in ouch a way. The bug
bear that Smoot has In.cnted (by stopping
tne work ny injunctions) will never ma
tcrlallze, for the only people who might
do such a thing are those of the B:ar river
valley, who would never try such a thing
for fear that their water might bo con
fiscated If, they tried to stop the repair of
the waste which they cause. In addition
tho water could be brought In In such
quantity as to enable enough new farms to
start to repay the entire cost of the canal
In a few years. A canal the site of the
Hear river canal ought to afford the water
needed to supply the wasto. Any one of
the proposed canals would enter the great
basin by way of Bear River valloy. There
might be considerable water brought Into
tho basin from the south side of the Uln
tas, coming over Into tho Weber river.
The expense would be considerable."

DEFECTS OP THE EYESIGHT.
Conditions That Give Warning of tho
Approach of Blindness.
The threo defects ot eyesight which are
most commonly encountered In otherwise
healthy persons and which can bo more or
less perfectly overcome by means of
glasses, says Youth's Companion, are near
sightedness, far-sightedness and astigma
tism. Thcso are nil Important, for, be
sides the discomfort and annoyance of Im
perfect sight, the Involuntary efforts which
the sufferer makes to ueo better strain the
eyes and not only Injure them, but also
give rise, through reflex action, to head
aches and various nervous disturbances.
Ncar-slghtednoss, short-sightedness, or
myopia, as It Is variously called, Is a con
dition of the eyeball usually a lengthen
ing In consequence ot which tho rays of
light are brought to a focus In front ot the
retina and so tho object Is blurred.
This condition may exist from birth, but
whenover near objects are looked at.
Is usually the result ot too much and too
early uso of tho eyes, as In the caso of
students, engravers, women who do fine
tewlug and so forth. Thus wo may say
that putting children at work at some ot
tho kindergarten oxercUes, such as perfor
ating and drawing, Is In a doubla sense a
chort-sighted proceduro,
Many near-sighted people refuse to wear
glurses, preferring to deprive themselves
of sight for everything beyond the nose
rather than Injure tholr personal appear
ance, as they think. This is another short
sighted policy, for, besides losing much
of tho Joy of oxistonce which comeB from
eoclng the beautiful things about and above
us, such persons are very liablo to suffer
from Inflammation of the eyes produced by
constant strain.
A less common defect is long or far
slgbtedness, or hypcrmetropla. This Is the
opposite of myopln, tho eyeball being fiat
tcned or shortened and the rays of light
consequently not coming to a focus by tho
tlmo they reach the retina.
In this caso tho eyo often corrects the
defect more or leas successfully by mak
ing tho crystalline lens more convex, but
It docs this at tho expense ot tho sufferer's
ucrvo force, and bo wo often find tlrod
and congested eyes, headaches, Indigestion
and even serious nervous affections. The
effort to correct tho vision Is entirely In
voluntary and can bo overcome only by tho
fitting of suitable convox glasses.
The third and most common defect Is
astigmatism. In this condition thero Is
some Irregularity of tho surface of the
eyo or the lens, by means of which tho
Image as It reaches the retina Is distorted.
Untreated astigmatism Is a frequent cause
ot headache and other nervous disturb
ances. The only relief Is the wearing of
glasses, at least while reading, writing or

however, Ropor, who held tho ball for
Mills, touched it down prcmnturcly and
tho Columbia men rushed on nnd stopped

AW ENVELOPE OP AIR.
Belief That a Moving- Train Carrie
One With It.
The theory that a moving train carries
along an envcloDO of air Is very Interest
ing." said the engineer to a Now Orleans
Times man, "and I bellovo there Is a good
deal of truth In It. I first hod my atten
tion attracted to tho subject by a curious
Incident that happened several years ago
at a crossing near Birmingham, Ala.,
where trains pass twice a day at a speed
ot about forty miles an hour. Tho tracks
are seven feet apart and thcro would seem
to bo ample room to stand botween thom
tn perfect safety. One afternoon a small
fox terrier dog belonging to a section
boss was nslccp In the middle space and
woke up Jsst as the trains closed In from
each side. Thero was a barrel on tho
ground near by and the ilog in his fright
Jumped on top of It. That possibly brought
hlra Into ono of the rushing envelopes ot
air; at any rate ho was whirled off his
feot nnd thrown clear to tho roof of the
opposite car, where ho was subsequently
found, Jammed against a ventilator chlm-.
ney, with no Injury except a broken leg.
How In the world he ovor mado such n
Journey nnd escaped nllvo Is a mystery,
unless his fall was deadened by n cushion
of air. Apropos of atmospheric pressure,
It Is a well known fact that thero Is a
'vortex space' or 'zono of suction' di
rectly behind any rapidly moving train,
and Its presence accounts for a grotesque
happening that took place Borne time ago
on tho Southern Pacific. While tho Cali
fornia bound express was going through
western Arizona at a clipping gait n
passenger who was on the vergo of tho
Jlm-Jams rushed out to the rear platform,
climbed on the rail und Jumped off. He
was wearing a very long linen duster nnd
a muscular tourist who happened to bo on
tho platform at tho tlmo grabbed It by
tho tails as It' sailed by "and yelled for
help. When some of the others ran to his
assistance they found the lunatic stretched
Htralght out In the air behind the platform,
howling like n Comancho, but safely an
chored by his duster, which had turned
Ineldu out and caught him by the shoulder.
Thu muscular gentleman was hanging 00
tor dear llfo, but had it not been for tho
fact that the would-be sulcldo was vlr
tually sustained and carried along by the
suction of tho vortex spneo something
would certainly have given way. Thoy
reeled the man In like a kite and he
promised to be good, Wd have very little
exact knowledge at present of the atmob
pheric conditions that surround a mov
lug train. A fuller knowledge ot them
may lead to a solution ot some baffling

GLORIES CM" OYSTER TIMI5.
Extent of the Business In and
Around Xevr York City.
Now Is the succulent bivalve In tho hey
day of his glory. This Is tho season of the
full oyster pall, relates tho New York
Herald. Not If years lnivo oysters been bo
plentiful; never have they been fatter or
sweeter, according to East River Bridge
Commissioner Beyle, who Is probably the
largest and best known oyster dealer In tho
metropolis.
One hundred million oysters come to this
city each week during tho "It" mouths.
Ono hundred thousand a day aro shipped
In tho shell from New York to less favored
localities. Oysters nre even exported In
ever Increasing quantities to Europe. Tho
freight charges to Liverpool aro no higher
than the lnlaud tariff to St. Louis. Cpnso
qucntly about 1,000 bushels a week leavo
this port for Europe.
In this vicinity oysters are sold by
"counts" that Is, by tho 100 or 1,000. In
tho Interior they aro sold In bulk, opened,
at so much per quart or gallon. To nearby
cities, llko liufTalo, oysters are sent In the
shell, but to Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chicago,
St. Louis and other moro distant points
they aro shipped opened. 1
About 150,000 shucked" oysters nro sent
out ot New York each day. Most ot the
varieties received here now are Bluo
Points, Oak Islands, East River Kills,
Itockaways and Buzzard Bay oysters. Bluo
Points no longer come from any particular
spot, but signify a large, long, firm, swect
fiavorcd oyster emanating from varlou"
localities.
Long Islnnd for Its entlro length and the
Connecticut shores of tho sound furnish
the locnl market with tho bulk of Its bup
ply. While n single femalo oyster will
yield from 10,000 to 60,000 young tho Infant
mortality among oysters Is most awful.
Up to April tho oyster farmer cultivates
tho growth of his prospective crop. Prior
to that he has procured his seed oysters,
from Connecticut, very likely, paying 75
cents a bushel for from 1.500 to 2,000 seed
oysters. These Becd oysters nro carefully
plnntcd In beds where old oyster and scal
lop shells and small scaly rocks wilt af
ford them a "clutch," or anchorage They
aro planted at the rate of about fifty bushels
to tho acre. 1
While oystors are found at different
depths, largely depending upon the tem
peraturo of the wator, In the United States
the majority aro taken In water from
fifteen to thirty foot deep, although dredges
nro used down to fifteen fathoms. Tho
Trench and English oystermen dredge or
dinarily down to thirty fathomB. In shal
low wntcr oysters aro taken with "tongs,"
a pair ot very long-handled Iron-toothed
rakes that open and Bhut llko a pair ot
scissors.
In deeper water dredges are used. Theso
are coarse meshod nets of very heavy twlno
or Iron chatnwork, secured to a rectangular
Iron framo, which scrapes over tho bottom.
Tho frnmo Is about twlco as wide as It Is
high, being usually threo or four feet
across. The long sides are sharpened or
more generally furnished with large pro
jecting teeth. The dredge Is usually at
tached by a long chain to a small winch,
worked by ono or two men. The larger
oyster boats carry two dredges.
Tonglng Is usually prosecuted by small
beat, dredging from larger vessels of from
flvo to fifty tons burdon. The men, often
small farmers or fishermen at other seasons
of the year, start out early In the morning
and rake until they have gathered a sloop
load, say seventy bushel baskets.
There Is quite an Industry In oyster grow
ing at Jamaica and on the Great South bay.
In theso waters tho oysters aro grown on
bars, where they are raked together and
thrown Into baskets when the tide Is low. At
high tide the boats are floated over the bars,
the baskets lifted Into them and thence con
veyed to the Rarltan river.
Here one of the tricks of the oysterman's
trade Is resorted to. The oysters are put
overboard and allowed to drink heartily all
night of fresh water. The river fattens and
freshens them at the same time, this latter
process being all Important because the bl
valvo Is by no means a favorite In Its
natural saline state. The oysterman after
treating his cargo thus proceeds on his way
to uansevoort or Fulton market. Most of
the halt shells eaten hereabouts are two
years old. While oysters are taken at all
seasons of the year, thoy are pretty gen
erally protected by law during their spawn
ing period, from May to September. Tho
number of oysters consumed Ib enormous,
30,000,000 bushels being a very conservrtlve
estimate ot the quantity consumed annually
in this oountry. Their value In round fig
ures Is moro than $16,000,000. Maryland
leads, with about 12,000,000 bushels a year.
Oyster culture In the Unltod States dates
back to 1820. The shell heaps of Europe tes
tify to the antiquity of oyster fisheries. 'At
an early date the Romans cultivated oysters
In beds, which are Btlll used for that pur
pose. Down nt the foot of Porry street the bulk
of tho oyster dealers ot the metropolis have
their headquarters. Thero are more than
two dozen oyster shops, plain, two-story
floating structures. About 100 oyster sloops
and schooners come thither every day dur
ing the season. Down at Fulton niarkot.
on the East river side, about halt as many
more vessels deliver their cargoes each
morning.
Inside the oyster bouses the "sbuckers"
sit In a long row and work like mill hands.
They aro usually paid SI per 1,000 for open
ing oystors, and a good man makes at least
S5 a day during tho season. The oysters that
aro to bo sent out of town In the shell are
packed Into barrels and dispatched on fast
freight tralnB. Nearly all tho finest oysters
are selected for the local hotels and restau
rants, which pay a good price for tho best
flavors and firmest varieties. There la a big
profit for them at that, as the usual order
does not contain more than eight to ten
oysters, nnd at 2fl cents, notwithstanding
rent, Borvlce, etc., the restaurateur makes
money,
A curious by-product of the oyster, so to
speak, Is tho use of tho shells for manure
and for road building. The refuso shells
from tho largo oyster canneries nro also
burned Into llmo for use In making gas, or
are used as n flux In the manufacture of
certain kinds of Iron,
