The methud of irri .ating the goo.uito acre tract is tiie ino-t interesting matter connected with it at present. From Mount Whitney, the highest peak of the Surra Nevada, Hows the Kern river, through Kern county. It is formed from the melting of the snows on the moun tain. This river has been tapjied by canals—l 4 on one side, 13 on the other. These are the main canals. From them flow lateral canals to every farm, 1,100 miles of tiii-un Leading from the large laterals are still smaller ones, ly ing along the line of the farmer's fields. The wa ter is introduced into tiie fields by fur rows that lie at close iutervals. For ordinary field crops three irrigations a season are necessary. One man can man age one irrigation ditch, and eight men and eight ditches can irrigate 1,000 acres a day. For all the water you need, the cost is $1 .10 to the acre a year. This is the real way of jrraying for rain, and it will probably be brought into requisition more and more in the east as well as west. The Almighty gavo man hands and brains to get all the water he needs for himself. 1 - Ybe Stein Arc-tie Kxpeditiwn. Judging from his photograph, Mr. Robert Stein of the United States geo logical survey possesses the warui color ed hair which goes with the enthusiastic temperament that makes the successful soldier or explorer. If there is anything In temperament, therefore, Mr. Stein will safely accomplish the results he has set himself in arctic explorations. In May he will leave his native land for a trip that may last two or three years. He hopes ho will be able to finish explor ing the northern coast of North America Snd practically be able to map it out. He will enter on his work from the northeast coast. Following the ordinary whaling route up as far as the north west part of Baffin's bay, be will disem bark at the southeast corner of Elles mere Land. There, at the point where Jones' sound leads off from Baffin's bay, he will build a substantial house, fit for winter or summer. This will be his de pot of supplies. With this as his bead quarters he will make trips along the coast of Ellesmere Land, Grinnell Land and the northern coast of this continent In general. There are 500 or more miles on the northern and western shore of Ellesmere Land that have never yet been visited by e.n explorer. Mr. Stein hopes to bring home rich acientific collections of animal and vege table life, also minerals, from this re gion. It is believed that there is a tribe of Eskimos on the north shore of Elles mere land that have neveryet been fa vored with a call from the white man. If this is true, it will be immensely in teresting to find out what a savage peo ple are like that have never been subject ed to the civilizing influence of the white man's tobacco and firewater. A melancholy interest hovers around the fate of two daring young Swedish enthusiasts, Bjorling and Kallstenins, who left St. Johns, N. 8., in a small whaling schooner in J tine, 1892, for Elles mere Land. It was feared then that they would never be heard of again, and they have not thus far. The wreck of their schooner waa found at the Gary islands, in Baffin's bay. Stein hopes to gain some tidings of their fate. He takes provisions for two years. Union For Practical Progress. The hard times have set people to thinking—at least those who have any thing to think with. In many cases societies have been organized in which people can compare the results of their thinking and eliminate the erroneous from the logical. In other cases associ ations have been formed for direct prac tical work in helping humanity, their own members included. One of these is an outcome of the literary and philan thropic life that has gathered around the Boston Arena as a center. It is called the Union For Practical Progress. The union has branches in the large eitiee, and additional divisions may be formed anywhere at any time. It asks the "moral forces" of community everywhere to join with it. Members of social, debat ing and reform clubs are especially invit ed to co-operate. The direct object of the union is "immediate and needed social, industrial and economic advancement." Well, there is need of such advance ment. The present commercial crisis shows that we are not yet more than half civilized; that we do not know half as much as we think we do or as we pre tend to. We are scarcely more safe from banger and famine than savage tribes are, as the present hard times prove. If the Union For Practical Progress can help mankind to be cleaner, honesterand more prosperous, then heaven speed its workl But the danger is that it will let loose upon itself all the cranks in Chris tendom and be talked to death. Measuring Criminals. It was M. Bertillon, a Frenchman, who devised the system of anthropometry. Besides photographs, first of the profile, then full face, Bertillon conceived the idea of making certain measurements. Several diameters of the head and ear are taken, the exact height, length of arm, size of wrist, length of foot, length and shape of nose, and the exact color of eye are some of the items in this unerr ing system. The eyes are divided as to color into seven classes, noses as to shape into nine classes. The height, size and shape of the forehead are also noted. M. Bertillon declares there is no more certain way to identify a man than by the head and ear measurement. He can not change the shape of his ear unless he gets it done by a surgical operation, and, phrenology to the contrary not withstanding, M. Bertillon says he can not increase or diminish the length and breadth of his skull. Every mole, birthmark or scar on the convict's body is noted. The examina tion is so thorough that a man might be measured and classified as soon as he ha/i got bis growth, and in many respects he could be spotted by the same method and placed after he was 70 years old. This system of anthropometry is so mey cih-ss i:i rs «li<c< very *.f «>M convicts t . it it has had ;i wholesome effect in di i.mi-hu.g crime already in Paris. The system ;s ii"W in tise with success in ci'. !:•'--mm and Switzerland. We ought t'i have it in America. I' 1111• 11 I '.lncut inn. A gentleman who calls himself "a teacher iff el. .cv.tion" listened carefully to several j reai hers nue after another to ascertain hoc they delivered their ser in i.-. Hi- c nclusii.ns will constitute very interesting reading to ministers everywhere, as well as to the congrega tr t.s will, ie ar them. The teacher writes in '1 tie < »ut 1- ik. The preachers one and all showed conscientious preparation as to the matter of their sermons, hut they apparently had given no more thought to the manner of delivering them than if the speech were exjwcted to deliver it self. This is a sad mistake. The minis ter who gives the gospel to his hearers in an attractive way has twice as much prospect of saving sinners as the man who delivers his message in a harsh, dry, indistinct manner. The first minister did not seem to be talking tn his hearers at all, so utterly destitute nf all sympathy was his voice. *T was made to feel that the minister, instead of talking right home to us in the pews, was consciously promulgating an official address." The next preacher was afflicted with some kind of chronic spasm about the throat that made his Vuice hard, metallicand rejiellent tosympathy. "Si onetimes his voice gave out an into nation fairly ferocious." An assistant clergyman read the hymns and notices in a mumble jumble of which scarcely a word could be understood. Next was a preacher who at times used the colloquial or conversational tone fairly well, which was excellent so far as it went, but in his voice there was a recurrent tune that acted as a narcotic. Yet preachers will grumble because peo ple go to sleep under their sermons. His assistant read the Bible lesson in a drawl, indicating that he was bored to death. The teacher says this is a British fad, and it is spreading. He thinks the preach er guilty of using this voice ought to have a thrashing, and so he ought. Then came the preacher who, while he was able to use the vivid colloquial style in general, drew out the little word "great" as if it had been an accordion. The teacher says many preachers do this. The last minister he noted ranted fear fully. Suicides Arc Insane. That is the verdict of Professor Forbes Winslow, the expert in mental disease. Ho dues not think that any legal penal ties, however severe, will prevent per sons from attempting to put themselves out of the world. The only measure he can recommend to that end is the mak ing of life happier for the people with the suicidal mania, so that they will cease to want to get out of it. How to do this, however, Dr. Winslow does not say, and there is the rub. How to make ourselves and others happier and more comfortable in this dreary world is the problem that concerns all of us, even those who have least desire to get rid of life. There is a strange disproportion be tween the sexes with regard to suicide. Where 73 men kill themselves only 27 women do. This makes the popular doc trine that men are stronger minded than women look a little shaky. Dr. Win slow says the greater pecuniary risks and responsibilities of men, the anxiety lest they fail to support those de pendent on them, explains why men's brains are turned and they commit sui cide oftener than women. Bnt this con clusion is negatived by the fact that the majority of the men who kill themselves are unmarried, therefore have no fami lies dependent on them. In several recent cases the unfortunate self murderers were well to do bachelors, with plenty of friends and apparently not a care in life. The insanity that prompts self murder is usually an infi nite and overwhelming weariness and disgust of life. It often cornea to those who have lived selfish lives, csring for none bnt themselves. Ho wonder they get tired of it. In Government Service. General O. O. Howard, the Christian soldier, declares in a recent newspaper letter thas if he were young again ha would not go into government service. He says, "I would seek the more fearless freedom of civil pursuits rather than the monotonous, stifling restraints of any government service." General Howard has spoken out here what every thoughtful person knows is true. In a table accompanying his let ter we find that there are altogether 217|> 186 men in government service in all its branches—civil, military and naval and including congressmen, the United States court judges and the president and his cabinet But the majority of this great army are humble clerks who get no more than SIOO a month at the outside, few of them so much. And of the number 151,995 are young men between the ages of 21 and 85. Of two young men equally well edu cated and capable one seeks a govern ment appointment, because it is a "sure thing." as General Howard expresses it He gets perhaps $75 a month to start The other goes into a business house at $7 a week. In 15 years both men have families. The government clerk follows his round like a harness horse for a compensation of, say, SIOO a month. It is the most he will ever get The other has either a salary of $6,000 or is a partner in a commercial or turing house and is a well to do man still full of hope and ambition. Professor Dolbear has been experi menting as to the physiological effects of magnetism. It appears that what is commonly called a magnetic fielih— that is, space throngh which magnetic sub stances pass—does not affect the nerv ous system in any way. On the other hand, however, when a portion of the human body is placed within the al ternating magnetic field—that is, a field in which the polarity is reversed many times a second by alternating magnetic currents—then complete insensibility of the part of the body subjected to this ac tion is produced, and surgical operations may be performed on that spot without any feeling on the part of the patient This is a great discovery. Patients need now no longer npset their digestion by chloroform and ether if Professor Dol lar's conclusion is applied to active sur gery. The New York Son tells Utah how ah* can get into the Union without farther delay. It is to annex herself to the state of Nevada and give up her name and ter ritorial rights. The Sun thinks Utah has made the United States so much trouble that she ought to be willing to do this by way of compensation. Mrs. T. S.

Pussy Captures au Eagle. Scientific Americsn. Charles Wiswell, of Carbonate, Law rence county, S. D., has a cat that is a king of its kind. Besides being a good mouser, this remarkable feline is death to mountain rats, night hawks, and other small game, not long ago bring ing home as the result of its prowess a large jack rabbit. But the most re markable incident in the cat's history happened a day or two ago. It was an encounter with a full grown bird of freedom, and pussy was the victor. The cat was sitting on a pile of quartz patiently awaiting the reappearance of a chipmunk, which but a moment before it had chased into a hole, when suddenly the sky above the cat became darkened, and an ominous swish as if from a rapidly moving body fell upon pussy's ear. The cat sprang aside with a mo tion so rapid that the eye could scarce ly follow it, and in the place it had oc cupied but a moment before stood a full grown bald eagle, its plumage ruffed and thirsting for blood. Fussy had sand and accepted the gauge of battle, and in less time than It takes to tell it, the famous "cat and parrot" time was being re-enacted. It was a desperate struggle, and although pussy was pretty badly scratched by the eagle's talons, it, when taking the in itiative in the fight, secured a decided advantage, having landed on the eagle's back. For a few moments the air was filled with fur and feathers, and the ground was all torn up, but pussy held on, and iu a short time succeeded in biting through the neck of its antagonist. The struggles of the eagle grew weaker and weaker, and soon ceased altogether, and pussy, exhausted by tbe violeut exertions and sure from wounds inflicted by the eagle's talons, rested for a moment, then, as calm as though sitting on a ' rug before the kitchen hearth, went carefully over the ruffled fur, made its toilet, and, seizing the body of the vanquished antagonist, drew it with much difficulty to the home of its master. Laying it at the master's feet, the eat purred its satisfaction, and in this way boasted of the victory. The combat was witnessed by a number of people, every one of whom expressed a desire to buy the eat, but Mr. Wiswell says he would not sell it for the best mine in the lllack Hills. The eagle measured six feet four incites from the tip of one wing to that of the other. THE ROYAL NAVY. Not Much Chance for Training In the XliMlern ships. ' The anonymous author of "Life in the Royal Navy " which has just been printed in London, points out that "the keen competition between ship and ship in our squadron did much to re lieve a sea life of its ennui. During the day we were busy making preparations for any evolution that the admiral might signal to lie carried out in the evening, so that w hen it came the work was performed with much zest by all bands. The tremendous desire to bo first was such as to lead to hazardous running in and out and climbing on the mast and yards. This splendid training to keep men fit is now lost to us with the large abolition of masts and yards, and nothing of equal importance has been established to compensate for it. Something lias been done in the w ay of physical drill and gymnastics, but there is much room for improvement in the same direction. The men should, in my opinion, be granted greater facili ties for taking part in those exercises on shore that are at present doing bo much for the youth of the country DONT'S FOR HUSBANDS. DON'T forget that the true gentle man never uses profane or vulgar lan guage; that he does not speak hastily. DON'T hang about the kitchen, with advice here and suggestions there, un less your wife has the same privilege at your place of work or business. DON'T pay a dollar for a lunch "down town," and half as much more for cigars, while you think up plnus for greater economy in the family grocery bill. DON'T require an itemized report of every dollar placed in her hands, even should she make an unwise expendi ture; consider how many times you have given her the example.—Good Housekeeping. The airship is not yet perfected, hut a German, Otto Lilienthal, claims to have really invented a flying machine which will enable a private individual to take many a delightful pleasure sail through the air. The machinery Lilienthal uses might have been modeled from the wings of the people of Bulwer's coming race, ■o closely do they correspond to the pro pulsive machinery of that gifted folk. Taking the wings and tail of a bird as his immediate pattern, Lilienthal built a pair of fliers like bat wings in shape. They have light willow ribs and are cov ered with oiled silk. A tail attachment serves to steer the human flier. After many experiments Lilienthal had confi dence enough in his machine to build a tower upon a bluff 840 feet high. Ho leaped from this boldly. At first ho sank 60 feet, bnt was presently able to rise till he reached a height of 1,000 feet. He says great muscular strength is not re quired to fly like a bird, but only a knowledge of how to utilize the air re sistance and currents exactly. Mr. Lili enthal is already able to fly in great clr iles and como bach to his starting uoint A new device for disposing of snow in the streets of cities has been invented. The machine is a huge snow consumer. It moves along the streets, and when it comes to a pile of snow stops. The snow is damped Into an iron trough and runs bat in a steady stream of more or less |dirty water. A naphtha tank heats the Iron trough in which the snow is placed hud melts it. The iron trough will hold a cart load of snow. The snow turns Into water and runs off in less than no time. This is an improvement on hun dreds of carts wrestling hopelessly with a mountain of snow in the attempt to haul it away somewhere. The Matabeles never despaired ana lei down absolutely till now. They sus tained as bad a drubbing as ever the British gave a tribe of barbarians and still kept up their savage courage. Even after their fierce old King Lobengnla was slain they retained their warlike spirit for a time. But when the ques tion of who was going to support Loben gula's widows faced them in all its grim terrors then they weakened all in a bunch and came in and surrendered. What a quarreling time of it the Knights of Labor havel The renowned cats of Kilkenny clawed each other all to pieces np to their tails, and the tails are enpposed to be fighting still. Are the Knights of Labor, a few years ago esteemed each a strong and noble order, going to fight till only the tail ends of the different factions are left, and even then are these going to keep on with the scrimmage? A member has been expelled from the Louisville city council for taking money to vote for a certain man as city weigh er and sealer. Four other members are being tried on the same charge. What is the world coming to anyhow when a city councilman can no longer accept a bribe? Mr. Bailey has introduced a bill into congress making it unlawful for sena tors and representatives to recommend to the president or heads of departments any person for public office. That bill has about as much chance of being pass ed as some politicians have of going to heaven. The following sentence from ttucsie contains a supreme truth: "There is no instance on record of any class possess ing power without abusing it." It is the distribution of power among all classes that holds things level. One man to every eight of the popula tion is available for military service in the United States. In case of need we could summon an army of 8,360,000 to the field. That is more than any nation bt Europe could do. SIIILOFI'S CURE is sold on a guar antee. It cures Incipient Consumption.
