Muruliea of the Kuago uuu ut L'tnlt'M Great Lake, One of the sights of the Creat Salt lake of Utah, developed by ibc prog? ress of scientific industry, is the sys? tem of immense .salt making ponds oil the shore ol" the lake. At Sitiralr the lake water is pumped into :i great set? tling basin, where the impurities fall tu (he bottom aud, containing much Iron, form a reddish deposit. From this basin the water Is drawn off into ??harvesting ponds" averaging 90.000 '.ijiiare yards !n area ami six Inches in depth. The pouds are kepi supplied with water, as the evaporation goes o'.t from May to September, when the salt harvest begins. The water having dis? appeared, a da/'/.liag layer or sali two or three inches thick is found covering the bottom of the ponds, which is bro? ken up with plows before being con? veyed to rite mills, where the final crushing ami wiuuowiug uro'done. In general the sali marshes of the Kongo region represent tt kind of pock? et or rift In thi- soil. They are to be found in considerable numbers in the district of Sambillt. ami there arc also many Of fjr.'se iiihrslios on tlib left bank of the rivet l.?Tubu. The wails of ihr tilt show first a layer of bluck i.h clay mixed with sand anil contain? ing numerous iptart?s ami sih-x peb? bles or more execprioiuilly black aud while shells, fragments of oyster and mussel. Then cullies a layer of strati lied and gray blue schist. The soil of the depression also eoutains schist as the greater constituent aud is covered by a laxer of sandy day. in order to collect the salt the natives dig a fuu uel shaped hole Horn six to ten feet deep. The cavity soon tills up with a warui and clear water, which is strongly charged with salt. It conies up with considerable pressure, and the liquid seems to boll. Tbc salt is partly precipitated nt the bottom of the cav? ity and mixes with the soil to form a blackish mud. The latter is was;hed out with hot water to extract the suit, which Is then crystallized from the so? lution. The product which Is thus ob? tained is of a salty gray color, aud Its taste is mure alkaliue vhnu that of Eu? ropean salt. FRANKING. The War the Privilege Ha* Bceu AbuKCil In kluKlusid. Aiuericiiu legislators are uot the. only ones who abuse their franking privi? leges. Recent history in England has caused the London Chronicle to say: "Franking had its birth, honestly enough, in liitiO, in the desire to relieve members uf paiiliimeut of the expense incurred in the discharge of their na liounl duties, but the practice rapidly wideued until H became possible for members to transmit their household goods at the public- charge, us the fol? lowing extract from "old postutiice rec? ords testifies: 'Fifteen couple of hounds goiug to the king of Hornaus with a free pass, two maidservants going as laundresses, to uiy Lord Ambassador Methue'u, Dr. Oriehtou, carrying .with him a cow anil divers necessaries; three suits of clothes for some noble? man's lady at Hie court of Portugal, two bales of stockings for the use of the ambassador to the crown of Portu? gal, n deal case with four Hitches of bacou for Mr. Peuningtou of Rotter? dam.'
