A destructive snow nilcie.
The most destructive slide I remember
was one that came down upon the Sheri
dan and Mandota mines near the top of
the range that rises above Ouray. It
carried away the kitchen and bunk house
of the men, and covered fifteen miners.
Some who escaped came down to Ouray
on snow shoes over a perilous trail, run
ning nearly all the way along precipices,
and overhung with cliffs, bearing tremb
ling masses of snow, threatening other
slides. They begged us for help to dig
out their imprisoned comrades. We sent
a party up on snow shoes immediately,
eight of the nerviest men in the camp.
They got up to the mines safely and dug
out tho bodies and two live men. Then
they put seven of the dead men into sleds,
and with the rescued men started back to
Ouray, a party of fifteen.
They were half way down when another
slide came down on the trail and swept
away sleds, corpses and rescuers. There
was a space fifty feet wide from the trail
to the brink of a canyon, over eighty feet
deep. Some of the men were released by
the snow before they were carried to tho
edge of the gulf, but most of them, with
all the sled bearers, went over and down
upon the deep snow at the bottom. Not
one of that party was killed, although
they were somewhat bruised, and they
all, singly or in small parties, made their
way back to Ouray within the next three
days. The corpses lay embalmed in the
snow until spring, when the thawing of
the snow made them visible. They were
then brought down to Ouray and buried
Origin of Natural Gas.
Dr. II. A. Mott, the chemist, has been
making a study of natural gas. When
asked what he thought was the origin of
the gas, and whether he thought it was
really volatized petroleum, as has been
claimed, he replied: "No. It seems to
me that it cannot be; to so produce it
would require a far greater heat than ex
ists at the depth where it is found. My
theory is that the gas was thrown off
during the first stage of decomposition of
the herbaceous and ligneus plants, and
has since remained undiscovered in the
caverns of the earth. I say the first
stage because I consider that in this case
there were three stages of decomposition,
the first resulting hi gas, the second in
petroleum and the tliird in coal. New
York Commercial Advertiser.
An Indian's Expression.
Voice, gesture and language were all
called into action by an Indian cliief who
tried to dissuade Maj. Powell from en
tering one of those wild gorges tlirough
which the Colorado river runs.
He held liis hands above his head, with
his arms vertical, and looking between
them to the sky, said: "Rocks h-e-a-p,
h-e-a-p liigh; the water go h-o-o-wooh
Avater pony (boat) heap buck. Water
catch 'em; no see 'em squaw any more;
no see 'em Injin any more; no see 'em
papoose any more." Youth's Compan
ion. The Toreigu Secretary.
When Foreign Secretary Lord Dudley,
dining with Prince Esterhazy, the Hun
garian Croesus, who used to strew Al
mack's with f alfrn diamonds (the London
tradition says about three hundred
pounds' worth every evening lie attend
ed), was put out at finding none of his
favorite, humble delicacy, he kept mut
tering in liis absent way, "God bless my
soul, no apple pie." The Argonaut.
The Arab Mare.
She was the most beautiful mare I'
have ever seen, of pure Najd blood,
gray, with flea bitten spots, eyes too
large for her head, nostril thin and , ex
panded, the tlu-oat of a game cock?, the
hair of her mane and tail so firve and
soft that the most beautiful woman
might have been proud of such a texture,
and her skin so thin and soft that the
thorn bushes through which I rode her
used to tear it; and after many of my
runs through the jungle I have liad her,
bleeding from the thorns, looking as if
she had been practiced upon With a light
sabre. She was what you? would con
sider in England a pony, 1 hands 11-2
inches high; but she was as broad almost
as a dray horse, and her tail was set up
so high that as she moved about her
loose box you could, stooping, walk be
tween it and the ground. Her feet were
black and hard, and the tendons belov
her hocks and knees were like harp
strings. Add to this that her head was
so lean that you ixilght have boiled it
without obtaining any flesh from it, and
you have a nature of what this desert
