cent bonds outstanding, at the mar value of each Oct. 81. 1892, the governms could save $67,16.51. In addition furnishing a permanent basls for orboa tion this would prove a great saving to i tax payers. The comptroller also sugge that he, with the approval of the secrets of the treasury be empowered to reme officers and directors of banks for violatic of the law; that the law be so amended to prohibit offen or employee of a bar borrowing its funds in any manner excs upon application and approval by the boa of directors. 'lhe comptroller argues against Ost bank notes. By every consideration sound business principles, he says, congrc should provide all the money the count requirds. No public interest can be serve he holds, by dividing this function wi forty-four states. Every period of final cial depression in the past resulted in t! suspension of specie payments, more or ls general, by the banks; it resulted in ini bility of the banks to redeem their note The same conditions would produce similt results in the future. If state bank not, were allowed to circulate their acceptan would not be voluntary, bhi a necessity. The wealthy ola could provide themselves with tl means of discriminating against notes , the weak banks, and if they found then selves possessed of any they would proces to work them off upon their less fortunal neighbors. That is the record of the pasl It would be the experience of the future The note of a failed national bank wooul be as good as that of any bank in the sys tem. State bank circulation loses its mots power in a crisis. Instead of paying debt it comes forward itself to be paid. A WONDROUS CAVERN. Evldently a Prison for the Warriors c Someoe Previous Race. SAN FRANcIsCO, Nov. 27.-An explorer ha discovered on the crest of a mountain o marble in Tuolumne county, high abowv the Stanislaus river, a cavern 850 feet deep in which the bones of many series of hu man besngs have been found. T'he naturs of the cave and the condition of the boner indicate that the place was in some remote age used as a prison in which savages threw their captives to die. But ist was long ago that the cavern received its last victim, for the bones are turhed to lime and prao tically petrified. The cave is near the old miining town of Columbia. It is formed of ma ble of various hues, white, pink and bluish, and that is coated with a transpar ent lime formation, from which hang stalt actites in every conceivable shape. At the first landing the cavern was narrow, but it twisted in various contortions and opened out into small chambers on every side chambers ornamented in odd stalactite forms, and occupied by stray remnants of former beings. The first vision of bones was caught as one of the torches was held under the overhanging wall. This recess extended about six feet inward from the stairway. Half a buahel or so of bones were on the floor of this recess, huddled up in a manner that indicated their frequent molestation. Eastern Advocates of Silver. NEW YonR, Nov. 27.-The executive com mittee of the New York Free Silver league met at headquarters yesterday and ap pointed a committee of five to visit Wash ington and advocate the passage of a bill to increase the purchase of silver from four and a half millions to eighteen millions per month as a necessary measure to pre vent the fall of prices and relieve the peo ple ftom the evils of a contracted currency. 'l he committee will also advocate the pas sage of a bill to restrict immigration by a heavy head-money tax on all immigrants.

An Application of Keroseme Found to I 0 fieotive, te The latest mosquito remedy bears the 1 ta press of a scientific mind, while being erm ry nently practical, saea the Pittablrg Dim 'r patch. The inhabitant of a summer cot * tare, finding the insects very troublesome t, traced them to their breeding place, a rain wt water pool in the neighborhood with a san face of sixty square feet. Finding the egge wre deposited, he sprinkled ton ounces of kerosene over the surface of th 'f pool. At the end of ten days it was covere, with dead insects, of which 7,400 war counted. Most of these were gnast, bn there were 371 female mosquitoes ane many males. As the average number of eggs laid by th female mosquito is 300, the destruction o these 371 specimens prevented the develop ment of 111,800 individuals of the nex generation. Moreover, certain female fled away after touching the surface of th water and undoubtedly died at some din tance from the pool. The experimen proved so eucceesful that it is likely to b repeated in districts where mosquitoe abound. The remedy has the double ad vantage of being simple and cheap. The propagation of insects could be ar rested over 96,000 square feet of water sur face by using a barrel of kerosene, and the cheaper oil is much preferable to the ex. uensive for the purpose. It is suggested that if the application be made early in June, so as to head off the first generation, the numbers of this biting pest may be re duced to a minimum. ALL FOR LOVE. A Wild Goose Forsakes Its Freedom for a Barnyard. Last winter, D. W. Little, one of the adobe farmers on the west of town, shot into a band of geese; a white gander was struck and one wing broken, saysthe Biggs, Cal., Argus. Mr. Little took the goose home and gave him to his boys, who dooc tored his wing and he soon became so tame as to follow the boys about wherever they went, eat from their hands and even poke his head into their pockets for corn or wheat. A few days ago a band of wild geese, flying over the premises and making their usual clatter, attracted the attention of the domesticated gander, which gave an out landish display of quacking and shrill yells in goose language that had a most startling effect with the band flying past, A fine white goose was seen to leave the band and shoot down until it landed in the yard .at the side of the pet and the meeting was de monstrative to an exciting degree. Their gabbing, quacking and amusing antics af forded as much fun for the boys who wit nessed the meeting as they would have found at a circus. The new arrival, which is probably a mate of the now tame goose, refuses to leave, but will fly over the fence when the two are approached by the boys and then fly back to the mate when the boys step aside.

The Flathead valley, ten years ago an almost unknown region, the home or the savage and wild beast, to-day is the most l.roducti-e section of the north. west, yielding per acre double the out. put of Kansas, Iowa (r tle Dakotas, and is the only section west of the Miss issippi river which can rival the cale. ba e 1 Red River Valley of the North in tie superior quality of its cereals. It is the o ily agricultural sction in the state o Mlontana, where crops can be rtised without irrigation. Vegetables of all kinds ire grown it abundance, while apples, plums, peaches, cherries, pears, and the small fruits such as strawter riec, blackberries, goosebe ries, raspber ries are be ng ia;sed successfully. With a leady market for all products of t.e soil in the rich mineral di tricts to the east, west a d south, the farmers of th Flathead valley will s>ou be classed among the woalthiess and most intluen tailof this new tounir . heat averages thirty tive bushels p:r acre, oats sixty bushels, barley forty bushel-, rye thirty bushels, potatoes 400 bushy 8, cabbi ge ten tons per acre, rutabagas thir y tons per acre. The Flathead river, with its tribu. taries- tte North, South and Middle forks the Stillwater and Whitefish rivers, with th ,ir nume ous branche', making a total of ofer tO I miles of lo g.ng streams, all of which converge at Kalispell, flow through vast fores a of pine, tamarack, fir. larch and to !tr. Under the recent law enacted by con greoss these bo radless tracts of timber land can be purchased at $2.50 For acre. According to the state and tor's report, of the 103,489,283 feet of lumber ca:ved in the at ite during the year 1891, 100, 0 0,000 was sawed in M ssoula county, thus demonstrating this portion tf the state's sul remacy in the lumber in drstry. In the northern portion of the valley are hidden vast measures of a superiJr quality of coal towards which the rail roats are already building, and the tie velol nent of this resource alone w 11 rent.er this section the Pitt buag of th(e northwest. Adjoining th se imm. ns,i bodies of coal lie large tracts of oil land, which gve piomise of equa'ing the rich retioleum til!de of Pennsylvania. Natural gai has alo been discovered in this region.
