while the upper stories of a

by. the smoke, he stopped, and
seemed about to descend. The
crowd was in agouy, as a li e
seemed lost, for every 'moment
ol hesitation seemed an age.
While this 6hi vering fear seized
every beholder, a voice Jroni
the crowd cried out 'cheer

"hurrali burst Irom the excited
spectators. As the cheer
reached the fireman, he started
upward through the culling
smoke, and in a tew moments
was seen coming down (be lad

Gallileo's Telescope.
.In the year 1609, Galileo re
lates, he first heard from
friend in Flanders that an in
strument bad been invented by
which distant objects were
brought near, and the powers
of vision extended. Ileresolr
ed at ones .to imitate and sur
pass it. By jhia singular me
chanical dexterity, bis knowl
edge of optics, and his. highly
pbl.ished glasses, he was soon
able to produce a telescope be
fore which the Dutrl instru
ment sank into neglect and
was forgotten. : If. was.nsver
more heard pr; but a thrill of
wonder passed over Italy and
urope when it -was known
that the famous Pad u an pro
lessor had preptred an optic
glass that enlarged tin bound
of vision and endowed mankind
with new power. The charm
ot surpassing novelty covered
the wonderlul invention with
an unprecedented renown.
Galileo carried his telescope to
Venice, and from the tallest
bell-towers Senators and no
bles 'saw through the magic
glass great argosies sailing far
out 'at sea . and the distant
shores brought near and made
visible. All the value of the
new instrument broke at once
upon their minds; it must di
minish the perils of navigation.
Magistrates, Senators and citi
zens covered the fortunate in
ventor with applause. With
discreet co'irtesy Uelileo pre
sented, bis telescope' to the
Doge at a friendly audience,
and the Venetians at once rais
ed his salary to a thousand flo
rins. Covered with honors and
emoluments he returned to Pa
dua, halt conscious of the sur
passing discoveries that yet
awaited him in the silent beav
ens, or of the pains and woes
he was destined to.. bear in bis
later years Irom the heretical
revelations ot too tiulhlul and
iatal telescope.
Lo! the poor Indian! the Pi
ute Indian, has no notion ol
parsing away irom the face ol

said oi them that "they are a

i hey are seldom Bick,and there
appear lo be about one hun

ly a squaw that is over sixteen
and under sixty years of age
can be seen who has not a pap
pnose slung on her back. What
shah be done with these peo
pie will one of these days be
a question that must be a ques-
Unit- that must 'be answered in
some way, as there seems to
he no likelihood to their dying
'iff Among the Piutes, to
work is considered no disgrace,
and their biggest brave is not
ashamed to be seen handling
an ax or saw. The women are
quite industrious, and the men
are always readv to work when
coin is shown them. Their
greatest vice and their ruling
patsion is gambling. They
play among themselves, and
when they have money cards'
are never out of their hands."
The average amount paid, in
the last five years in the United
Stales tor advertising was
about $15 000,000 per annum.
In 1867 New York city paid
$80,000 tuxeson advertismeuts;
Philadelphia, $30,000; Boston,
$23,000; Cincinnati, $16,000;
Chicago, 15.000, and St. Louis
over $13,000. , The wealth of
the 'merchants in those cities,
and the extension of their busi
ness over the whole country, ax
well as. the flourishing condi
tion ol tbe cities, themselves,
show what advertising may ac
complish. It is . a common re
mark among observing .busi
