TIjo groat salt lake at Obdorsk is 0 miles wide and 17 miles long, yet except in a for,- places it U solidly roofed over with a deposit of salt which i.s getting thicker and thicker every year. Our uid. who is an old man, said that he could remember when tho salt crystals lirst began to gather upon the surface of the water. Year by year, owing to tho evaporation of the water', the crystals became more numerous and tb.-n caked together till tm'3 great roof formed. Iu 1S7S the water beneath this salt crystal roof found an underground out let into tho River Obi. This lowered the lake's surface about three feet, leaving that distance between tho water and the roof. Looking down through ono of the openings inado for tho purposo in the roof, w paw a low sided fcmallboat. Our guide put us one at a time into the ljoat. Wo lay flat on our back and looked up at the curiously beautiful salt ceiling overhead. We propelled tho boat by pushing with our hands against the irregularities of the roof. Tho guide held a long rope attached to the boat to prevent our going too far and getting lost a thing ho said it was easy to do. Many springs surround this lake. Their water flows over tho roof and tvaprates there, and thus continually adds to its thickness. After many years the springs will probably become choked with their own deposits, and then the whole will gradually become covered with earth, sfA so a great salt mine will bo formed a treasuro for the Siberians hundreds of year3 to come. Cor. Goo graphical Magazine. I'eoi.le Who Whistle. "Most people look nxm whistling as a nuisance," said Herbert C. SutluTe, "but there is no doubt that a whistling man has a good deal to recommend him. I have a friend who is a warden in a largo Icnitentiaryt and he states that in all Ins long experience he ' never knew a ha bitual whistler condemned to a term in tho institution, and ho says, moreover, that although tho rules as to quiet and order are frequently broken ho never re members to have heard an attempt at a musical whistle within the terrible look ing walls of tho institution. Whistling seems to bo the natural safety valve of good spirits and satisfaction, and the grumbling man couldn't whistle if he tried. "I had a man to work for me once who was a model in every respect except that ho kept my teeth constantly on edge by a series of whistling solos of anything but a cheerful character, although the good man was evidently trying to repro duce tho latest operatic liits. I broke him of the habit by continuous scolding, but tho man became so idle and indiffer ent in consequenco that I was very glad to encourage him to resume a habit which at first had given mo so much an noyance. I try to get out of tho way when tho spirit movc3 him to announce ia whistling tones some important or ro mantic event, but I am perfectly certain that as long a3 he whistles he will work as hard as his hands and arms will let him." St. Louis Globe-Democrat. The Trouble With a Cold. "'S'matterV "I got an awful cold," replied Colonel Morney. "Have you" "Yes, I have.

I took a hot bath, drank a pint of ' boiling lemonado and rubbed my hide almost off with Mustang liniment, but" "Now, listen! Havo you" "Yes, I have. Tried them all, but they're no good.

Tho blue of the sapphire is very seldom puro or spread over the whole substance of the stone. Sometimes it is mixed with black, which gives it an inky appearance, sometimes with red, which, although imperceptible by daylight, yet by artificial light gives it an amethvstine appearance. Two sapphires which by daylight may appear of tho same hue often differ extremely in color at night. If tho stonobeheld in an ordinary rair of f orceps an inch beneath the surface of very-clear water, the parts of the stone colored and un colorcd will be distinctly apparent. This remark applies to all other gems. Cin cinnati Enquirer. The l'orerty of Irinted tansruajfe. "God will keep up his end of the row if you give him a chance."
