A BRICDU l OF SA~lT.
t Isa Partly Natural and Pertly Artl fiolal Wonder Iu Deask Valley. The natural wonders of Death valley have robably been more minutely and extens vly deescribed by professional writers than ny other spot they never saw, but one onder there has in some way escaped theus ntraveled scribes, says the San Francisco Examiner. In 1888 omue borax works were built on the east side of the valley, a couple of miles or so above the mouth of Furnace Creek canyon. The road thence to the allroad led down the ea ast side of the valley or several miles, and then had to cross ver to the west benause no drinking w iter an be had on the east side below Furnace reek. Moreover, the land on the west side lies much better for a road. But how to get the wagons across the valley was a problem. From end the center of the val ley is one long salt marsh, and in most places it is so soft and wet that even a man would need snowshoes to insure safety. Elsewhere, however, the ooze has bueu crusted over. This crust is in places very thin and treacherous, and only in one lo cality does it seem to be firm. Wherever this crust has been cut through a thin slimy salt mud has been found to be of unmeasurable depth-unmeasurable with any line or pole. Dr. U. lait Merriam's corps of scientists cut through in one place and easily shoved a pole down fifteen feet. There is no guessing how much deeper the slime was. However, a road must be had, and so the workmen went about over the marsh where the crust seemed to be thickest and sounded it with sledge hammers. They found the crust was a mixture of salt and sand, and eventually a route was decided upon. The, road was then to be graded, and probably for the first time in the world a road of the length of this one was graded exclusively with sledge hammers. Here was a stretch of solid salt some eight miles across. In a sense it was level -there were no hills or valleys. In an other there was scarce a level square inch on the whole bed, for the salt crust had probably, through the influence of heat from above and of moisture from below, been torn and twisted and thrown up into the most jagged peaks, pyramids and eris crossed ridges imaginable. They were not high-none more than four feet-but there was not level space even for a man's foot between them. Every stop made was on a ragged point or edge of some kind. The nearest approach to anything like that 1 have ever seen was on the ice on Lake Erie, where two fields had been Jammed together by the wind and held so by the frost. The ragged ice masses were somewhat like these salt masses. They were larger, bat they were not so sharp nor in any way so difficult to cross. Judging that the crust would sustain the weight of the wagons, the workmen swung their sledge hammers day after day until they had beaten down these pinnacles into a smooth pathway six foot wide. It was, perhaps, the most laborious engineering work ever done in the country, for the cli mate and location, far from civilized habi tations, combined to retard the efforts of the workmen. The roadway, when com pleted, led over what may be properly called a naturally formed bridge of salt eight miles long-the only bridge of the kind in the world. As one enters the easterly end of this road two unmarked craves are seen in the salt crust near the track. They are graves of unknown men who died there from the heat, and, after the fashion of the country, were buried where they fell. They were covered over with pieces of suit broken from the pinnacles near by. The crust was too hard to warrant digging into it. One must travel a long time to find two more graves like those, if, indeed, two more can be found in the world. MAGAZINg GUNS. An Expert Who Ilelleves the Single Loader Is the ileat. While the magazine gun board is con cluding its tests of submitted weapons at Springfield, it is interesting to notice says, the Army and Navy Rlegister, that Mr. Very, of the lotokiss Ordinance company, whoseo residence in Europe has afforded him ample opportunity of watching the A magazine gun epidemic, believes the Spring field single loader is the superior of any of the magazine guns. Undoubtedly half f a dozen shots or whatever the magazine holds can be firo.l more rapidly from a magazine than froml a Springfield rifle. t IBut Mr. Very judiciously observes that the t critical period, during which a great rapid ity of firing will be very important in bat tie, will last three or four minutes and a soldier can fire more shots in three or four minutes from a Sp, ingfiold single-loader than he can from a magazine gun. Mr, Very also rrakes the cur ious hut imprrrt:rt criticism of tirhe mngazino guns, that no soldier in the ex citemirint of combat will keep count of his shots and that he will go through the mo tions of firing at arn advancing enemy after he has exhansted hia magazine. Even in practico and tarrct filitng he believes that most soldiers fire once more than they have cartridges, and amid the noise and excite- N ment of battle, especially in the face of a " charge from the enemy, he believes that a lnrge iortion of the troops would forget all ibout the magazines and go on automatic ally with the motions of loading ard firing. I Most of the officers of companies that were a few years ago supplied experimentally with Inagdzine guns reported adversely on them. They have with them a careful and intelligent observer fresh from the conti- t nent, where ll armies are equipped with magazine guns. The investigation now going on is of exceptional tho:oughness, nrd the report of our smnaill arms board - will be of great importance; it will prob ably be conclusive. TILE KING'S UWARFS WED.

Little Gibeon was at the christening and I Saw tile siiall Anne decked out in great splendor, and although he was still rather young to think of matrimony he fell in love with her then and there.
