Governor John Gary Evans has sent his
farewell message to the General .ssembly.I
The document is a voluminous one arnd
shows a thorouch familiarity with every)
branch of tbe State government. It alsoI
shows that the Governor has kept a watch
ful eye on the State's finances and was
careful to see that its monies were so in
vested as to result in a profit to the State.
His views on the .ispensar'y and the met-f
ropolitan poilice system are very interest
in, and his review of all the public insti
tutions makes his message a very readable
paper, This farewell miessage is an ableI
state paper, in fact, one of the ablest we

back into private life with a mission un

when the people will remuember the wrong
done 'him by unserupnlous politicians.

"The transaction was a busines
me, and my first interview with Guv

hey had bought and sold $10,000,

bur months, and would like for m
o get for them all the information

kinds of plants having been noticed in

- ably plucky adherence to duty on the
Ipart of a 13-year-old boy. He was the
son of the keeper, and on this occasion
was left alone in the tower while his
e father went ashore for provisions in
their only boat. Before the latter could
return a violent storm arose, and for
e the next three weeks there was no time
e in which the keeperts boat could have
- lived for a moment in the wild seas that
a raged about the lon~ely rock. Still the
y~ light wais kept burning by that 15-year
rold boy, who had little to eat and but
a scant time to sleep. Night after night
jfor three weeks its steady gloam shone
Sthrough the blackness of the pitiless
storm and gladdened the father's strain
ing eyec. When the ordeal was ended,
the~ boy was so weak from exhaustion
sas to be barely able to speak. At the
s sam'e time there was no proudecr father
nor happier young light keeper on the
a Maine coast than those who met on the
I storm swept ledge of Saddleback that
day.-Kirk Munroe in Scribner's.

"The cliff people are a busy folk,"
writes Hamlin Garland in The Ladies'

tiim- homes, home life and custcms of the
cliff dwellers of the southwest-"the
nist n:ysterious people in America, " as
he designates them. " The women grind

n(ccasins very deftly, while the young

of their climate. Each norniig while 1
j .i 1o I heard the n:en at carly

down into the purple plain. Their qua

strange beauty. Each morning, while
it was still dark, the women woke me
by entering the room where I lay to
grind corn, and each night I went to
sleep to the regular rhythm of the meal

gious chant of the toiling women.
"Let it be said that there is no wom

than among the Navajoes. The women
are chief property holders. The house is

The men are seldom severe in manner,
and in Acoma and Walpi, as well as in
Laguna and Zuni, I saw the men tak
ing care of the babies and doing it with
great tenderness and smiling patience.
I saw no evidence of any severity except
in case of the old women. They seemed
to be the drudges of the household in
Walpi and in Acoma, carrying wood
and bottles of water up the steep trail,
bent, withered, morose and complain

ing holes to represent eyes and other
openings. These afford a passage for the
air forced out by the liquid when pour
ed into the vessel. Ey an ingenious con
trivance the air in escaping produces a
sound similar to the cry of the creature
representeJ. Thus a utensil decorated
with two monkeys embracing each oth
er, on having water poured into or from
it, would give a sound like the screech
ing of those animals. One decorated
with a bird would emit birdlike notes,
while a mountain cat on one jar would
mew; snakes coiled around another
would hiss. The most curious that we
have seen was the figure of an aged
woman. When the jar was in use, her
sobs became audible, and tears trickled
down her cheeks. The manufacturers
seemed to have known all about atmos
pheric pressure. Dr. Le Plongeon had
in his own collection a piece that dem
onstrated this. It represented a dou
ble headed bird. The vessel had to be
filled through a hole in the bottom, and
yet in turning it over not a drop would
spill, but the liquid would readily flow
out when the jar was simply inclined.

In these days, when people are wont

prognostications sent out from the
weather bureau, it is amusing to read
of the complaisant manner in which
Clough, in his "New England Alma
nack" for the year 1702 and later, pre
dicted the weather.
'Perhaps," he says, from the 15th
to the 23d of January, "it will be very
cold weather if it frese by the fireside
or on the sunny side of a fence at noon."
In April he says: "Perhaps wet
weather if it rains." "Now fair weath
er if the sun shines. "" Windy or calm. "
And in July he - rites pleasantly,
"If now the weathedro prove fair, peo
ple to Cambridge do repair."
It appears that Mr. Samuel Clough
knew how to secure himself against
