Jecting a Railroad Ui Little Cottonwood. It was a red lettor day In tho his tory of Utah when Henry M. Crowthor took up his rosldenco here. It was also n great day for tho Alta mining district when ho decided to turn his attention to tho ground now known as tho Continental Alta. Slnco that time over threo yenrs ago, ho has bent all his energies In tho direction of de veloplng tho camp, nnd has been tho means of bringing many thousands of dollars Into tho stntc. Tho latest of bis enterprises Is to project tho building of n railroad up tho canyon to Alta. In tho old days, when tho enmp was pouring out Us wealth of carbonnto ores to tho valley smelters a trnmwny wns operated to tho camp. Largo portions of the trnck ago of this old tram aro still In tact Tho great slump In tho prlco of motnls In tho early nineties, which caused tho abandonment of tho mines led to tho discontinuance of Its tiso. Tho land slides- and avalanches of succeeding winters toro grcnt gaps Into tho road and rendered It useless ns a means of communication between tho mountain camp nnd tho valloy. Today with tho great Columbus Consolidated, and other mines besides that of tho Con tinental Alta pouring out their ores, nnd tho constant development of new mines nddlng their quota to tho over Increasing output of tho old producers, n railroad l-as become a necessity. Nono nro quicker to grasp n situa tion than Mr. Crowthcr, and ho Is now engaged In financing tho schomo. Tho road will bo ono of great diffi culty, frnm an engineering standpoint, to construct Tho grades aro In many places loo great to admit of tho uso of tho ordinary locomotive engine, and a cog wheel will havo to bo resorted to, Still, tho enterprise) Is not Impos sible by any means, and with Its pro jector's known ability nnd push thcro Is no question but that It will be fn accomplished fact In tho near future. That tho cnterprlso will bo a paying ono thero can bo no question. Today, with nil tho nvallablo teams in com mission hauling oro, tho output of tho mines Is circumscribed nnd many tons of oro aro being piled upon tho dumps or stored In bins nnd drifts for tho lack of tho moans,, of transportation. This conjested condition will bo ngravatcd as tho months go by. Tho best hopes of all tho minors and tho entire people go with Mr. Crowthcr in his endeavors In tho direction of this most needed Improvement. I ABRICULTURAL CDLLEBE I DF UTAH.

Ilowltf ) "Why are v.e waiting?" She was a new-comer or she would have known that In this very genteel boarding house, select us were its boarders, the star boarder was an Eng lish Lnronet, nnd that It wjs a feature of honor accorded him that dlnaer was never fairly commenced before his ar rival at tho table. The baronet, to do him Justice, was extremely punctual where replenishing the Inner man wns concerned Dut on this particular evening bo was not In his accustomed place, nnd people shuf fled ind toyed with rings, nnd tried to appear not to bo waiting, till the new aimer, a vivacious, fresh-tinted little lady, a little turned 40, Inquired of her near neighbor tho cause of delay. Hut at that moment the baronet appeared, (walking slowly, n heavy cloud on his brow. He took his sent by the side of Miss Drown, the lady of tho establish ment, presiding at the head of the ta bic Ho stooped and whispered to her in portentlous tones. "Can cat no dinner!" she answered aloud in alarmed accents. "Nothing, nothing," said the star boarder, "unless," with a melancholy wavo of his band, "a spoonful, Just a spoonful of tho soup. No more, not a drop more," as In obedience, to his re quost the soup ladle descended to his plate. "I have not missed taking thorn for IS years, and I dare not attempt anything llko a full menl without their aid. Until tho mall arrives to-morrow morning I am a starving man," and mournfully he applied himself to the soup (laced before him. That dis patched, ho rose, and with a muttered apology left the apartment for the drawing room. At his departure Miss Drown gavo explanation. The star boarder could eat no dinner because his dtgestlvo pills tho last two he possessed till the morning mall brought a fresh supply had disappeared from the box. The pill, box was Btlll standing on the mantel piece, but the pills, so the servant re ported who had been sent to fetch them, were gone. "Docs ho think the servant swal lowed them?" "I don't know," answered Miss Drown, absently, too anxious for tho effect upon her permanent boarder to Join In tho general titter around tho table; "but he says he shall dismiss him at once for his carelessness." "What Is tluJ number of the baro net's toom?" Tho newcomer asked the question with sharp abruptness. "No. 16." "Thon It Is next to mine." The lady looked for a moment attentively nt her plate, then, after tho baronet's exam ple, rising, with murmured apologies, quitted the tablo and tho room. A minute later found her by the star boarder's chair. "Aro you quite sure? Perhaps there is some mistake. Your servant might have overlooked them. May he Just glvo one moro look?" Divided betweon surprise at her In terference nnd her pertinacity, the bar onet, turning, rang the bell near hlra nnd directed his servant to look once more. The man obeyed. Ho returned, per plexity on his face, with the pill box and two innocent-looking pills therein. 'There. I told you so!" said the little lady, with a cp of her small white hands. The star boarder's first sensation was Joy. "Madam," ho said, with a studied bow, "you have the witchery of your sex." Hut his brow clouded. Glancing towards his man-servnut, "Your care leisnpss Is unpardonnble. I shall dis miss you from my service. You might have cost mo tho loss of" Ho rose hastily and, courtesy reminding him, offerod his arm to his benefactress. Tho two returned to tho dining room. "Forglvo tbo noor man." said the lady ns they went "No, madam; such carelessness Is too culpable." "And you nre feeling quite well this morning?" It was the morning after, and the Indy whoso witchery had se cured tho baronet his dinner lenned ovor his chair. "Quite, madam," he replied gallant ly, "owing to your cleverness. I have not had n dinner suit me so well or en Joyed so perfect a night's rest for a long while." "Then jou will not bo so stern to wards your man-servant?" Dut tho star boarder shook his head. "Such culpable carelessness, madam." The lady hesitated. "Could you keep a secret?" He bowed bolcmnly, "Then I will tell jou something. My room joins yours; they nro much alike. I, too, take pills bofore dinner, nnd I went by mistake Into our room nnd took two pills. Afterwards I slipped up nnd placed two of mlno In your box. I fonred to tell you lest they should" not suit you; but you see they have acted admirably. Pray, say you forglvo me." The barbnet's politeness was taxed. "Madam," ho said, "the effects have been roo happy for resentment AImj It follows my servant Is absolved from blame.' Thero was a deeper tint In the lady'a cheek, but her oyes were laughing. "Could you keep unotber secret?" Ho laid his hand on his heart "Faithfully." 'Thon" she roso as though prepared to mako quick exit after speaking. "It is nothing so very serious; only tho pills jou toolt last night were rheuma tism pills; and I um so glad they i.ult ed you." GOT WILD WELCOME MAORIS GREET VI8ITOnB urrru NATIVE CEREMONIES. Proceedings, One Would Imagine, Rather Trying to the Nerves of a Party of Weitern Tourists. A traveler In Now Zealand tells of a native welcomo. Ills party drew near to tho central homo of tho trlbo of Maoris: "As wo rested beneath tho parapets, wo wero startled by a horriblo yell and round tho corner of tho stockado appeared a ferocious figure, tattooed, red-painted, bofeath ered nnd nnked, except for n very ' brief waist fringe) of dangling palm ! fiber. Ills oyes rolled till tho whltcB ' only ucro seen, then ho thrust out a long and snaky tonguo and grimaced fearfully. Shaking n wooden spear In his hand, ho swiftly cast It at us, then turned nnd rushed toward tho village. Just as tho spcarsman turned ono of our joung men, who had rapidly divested himself of all but bis waist shawl, darted out In pursuit and wo followed at a moro dignified pace. Tho cntrnnco to tho city wns barred by n body of nrmed men, crouching still ns death, 011 0110 knee, each holding a gun, butt on the ground, barrel sloping townrtl . 1 us Wo advanced until wo wero within twenty paces of tho warriors. ' Then nil at onco, nt n wild cry from a chief on tho right, thoy Jumped tor their feet, leaped high In tho air, with their feet doubled under them like deer, and with ono volco lltor-i ally barked out a thundering chorus. This way and thnt our martial hosts bounded, brandishing their loaded rifles In time to tho chant. Halting; abruptly, with nn earth shaking thud, they fired a olley of ball cartridge over our heads. "Another volley reverberated from hill to hill and tbo bullets whistled over us. Then tho brown warriors fell back nnd a gayly dressed bnnd of women, with green leaves wreath ed about their brows, and waving shawls nnd leafy boughs, advanced with a gliding scmldanco and chanted their ancient welcomo Bong. When the women's song ceased, out to tho front danced six girls a group of vividly barbaric, yet not Inharmont- ! ous, color appareled In looso crlm- I son roundabouts and short gowns of I georgeously flowored print, their brows bound about with red handker chiefs, which held in plnco tho black and whlto plumes of tho raro hula bird and tho Iridescent feathers of tho long-tailed cuckoo, their checks dabbed with red oclior paint, green stone pendants and shark's teeth hanging from their cars. "Theso barefooted nymphs, hands on hips and heads thrown back, glided Into tho mcasuro of a dance, to the music of a shrill monody chanted by a whlto-hatrcd, tattooed old lady. Then all at onco tho chant onded on nn unoxpocted high note and tho performers stopped, breath- ' less and glowing all over with theli self-evolved emotions. Broad flax mats wero spread out for us on the green and after speeches of grcotlng wo wero regaled with pork, preserved birds, wild honoy and potatoes, In quantity sufficient to hnvo satisfied a starving Ilusslnn garrison." Big Mines with Small Names. Many of tho great mines of the West wero dovoloped by men who had comparatively llttlo capital.
