CoaoacMMAa Johmsom, of Indi ana, turned himself loose ia a bit ter speech last week criticising the Administration, and startled the House by the vehemence of bis re marks. The President can see how a body can have entirely too much Johnson. Tbe Tennessee Senate surely wtran i negro nonow, lor lyi J - 1 : 1 i . has passed tbe bill making craps felony.

A urfew law ia enforced at Manila to keep the natives from banding at flight for depredations. The Insu rance companies there refuse to pay any losses by the recent con flagration, iathaating that Gen. Otis is responsible for them, he baying guaranteed the safety of life and property. Texas is aa interesting rivalry to succeed Judge Barr as District Judge of Kentucky. Judge Wm. H. Holt, Congressman Pugb, Con gressman Walter Evans end Judge Cochran, the latter of Maysrille, are among the mors prominent as pirant. Pugh labors under the disadvantage of being elected to the next Congrees, while Evans was defeated last November. Aa elec tion for a ruecessor to Pugh might result in a Democrat being chosen, as the district is nearly evenly bal anced. However. Pugh has been a warm supporter of the Administra tion, and the Republican msjority ia tb House is big enough to riak the Kiss f one a.mbrr.

Fkaxcf. has a new President and is enjoying a characteristic French calm. A French calm is like the calmness of a mule with a burr under its tail. The Bourbon heir to the extinct French throne, the Puke of Orleans, is beat ing around outside the border in hopes of an uprising of the monarchist to re store the ancient regime. The heir of the Itonapartist hopes is lying low, waiting In see if the breaking of windoms and assaults on news paper ullices will develop any fur ther the discontent of the anti republicans.

The Luetgert case in Chicago, in which the sausage maker was con victed for life on a charge of kill ing hi wife and de.troying her body ia bis factory, was a severe blow to their taste for Sausage. Now in the tame city another sau sage-maker, Albert A. Becker, ha teen arrested on a similar charge.

VDath at all times and under any circumstances is both sad and eud den, but especially is this true when a little child is thus suddenly snatched from the home of loving parents, just at a time when her awakening intelligence and childish innocence seem to render life at home without her a sad and dreary waste. With whit unspeakable anguish do they consign her body to the cold rnd silent grave, how utterly devoid of happiness appear the future years of life when fond pareuts fully realize when they re turn to their desolate boms that "Baby is dead." Yes; dear sorrowing friends, your baby is dead and gone from you, but stop for a moment in your op pressive grief and anguish and ask yourself the question : "Where has she gone?" You can find tbe an swer to this question best in your own hearts, for although the sweet little form is lost to you ought at least to be some comfort in the thought that your loved one is safe in the arms of the loving Saviour, who said "Suffer little children to come unto roe and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heav en ; that though the trail and pain- racked body has been returned to mother earth the spirit is with the God who gave it. Oh, think of her as a happy and rejoicing angel, awaiting the time when all tbe dear ones left behind can meet her in that heavenly land where partings will never come, but where all will be joy, peace and gladness through out all tbe endless years of eternity. Then mourn not though the loved ones go Early from this world of woe; I'pon yon bright and blissful shore ' You soon shall meet to part no more, 'Mid amaranthine flowers to roam Where sin hhI death can never come.

It is rumored that two of our young men will leave shortly for the cotton fields of the South. Tbe recent cold spell froze their nose and their two big toes, and they will go where the warm wind blows. One of our citizens says that his wood does not burn to ashes, but to cinders instead. As cinders make good sidewalks, and our little city needs something of that kind very badly, suppose our friend uses them for that purpose. We think our friend at "Knob Liok" voiced the sentiments of every loyal citizen in his article recently on "Modern Politics." But suppose we should say to our would-ba law makers: "Do you favor the refer endum and imperative mandate?" His answer would invariably be in the affirmative, whether he had the least idea of holding up the truth or not, and thus we sink our politi cian lower by causing him to mas querade the truth.

(Such is Populism.) Which of these then thinkest thou was hi neighbor unto bim that fell among thieves? Wyoming. In a recent letter to Bob Estill, Tip Estill says: "Two or thre ,14 things in my letter to Will about this place of wonders I wish to cor rect. One is the great organ of the Tabernacle, whose dimensions are 33 feet long. 30 wide and 48 feet high. The other is Great Salt Lake, which is 100 miles long, 60 wide in places, with an average width of 30 miles; 60 feet deep in places, with an average depth of 20 ft. Twenty-two per cent of this lake is salt, and you can bathe in it with out sinking. It is the best barom eter in the world today, never failing to warn the inhabitants within a radius of 3 to 4 miles of its shores of the gathering storm, the snows and the rains, with that Herculean smell of brine. One eve preceding a snow I was out there and got a "whiff" of it and it was all I was looking for. Another thing I forgot to write about to Will : About 150 feet up on the east end of the Temple and about the center from north to south on a firmly polished granite stone built in the wall and receding back about' 6 inches a stone pos sibly 30 feat in length by ten feet in width are chisled in burnished letters these words (capitals). HOLINESS TO TIIE LORD. HOUSE OF TIIE LORD, BUILT BY THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS. COMMENCED APR. 6, 1853; COMPLETED APR. 6.893. Bob, I don't know whether or not you will ever live to get here, or that 1 11 ever live to get away ; but in your case you'll always want to, and in mine I shall always look back in fond remembrance to the 21 days of my life spent in this one of the most beautiful of Amer ican cities and about which so many histories have been written. and in which there dwells a cos mopolitan population made up of some of the most ignorant as well as the most intelligent, some of the purest as well as souieof the basest people that ever dwelt within the light of the sweet face of heaven." J. T. Estill. The impressions made upon any one visiting Salt late City will last I hem a life time. The air of mystery and the evidence of secret orkings and secret influences among these people arouses the curiosity of every visitor. The great temple which so fixed and held the admiration and interest of T. Estill was dedicated in 1893, 1 in April, in the presence of 20,000 people, from various portions of the West, mostly Mormons. A great many Gentiles, as the Mormons called us, were present to witness that memorable event. The Mormon i preacher hud for years been teaching the fnlloweis of Joseph Smith that on the day the great temple was dedicated the prophet would appear in person before his followers. Like other "skeptics, as those peculiarly religious people called us, we knew that it was a physical impossibility for an ordi nary mortal like Joseph Smith to appear on that or any other day set by mortal agencies. Yet those del tided Mormons believed it with the roost implicit faith. On that day their credulity was put to the severest test. A Mormon woniun on that day gave birth to a child within the temple walls. Accord- nglf. t carry out their sham, their ministers persuaded them that their lord and seer had ap peared in the form of that child. He was named Moroni in honor of the angel who led the prophet to Cumorah hill in Ontario county. New York, where he received his commands on tablets of stone. Feasted and worshiped will Moroni be while young and at man's estate he will be "charge d" affairs" in tbe Mormon church. Oh, religion, what sacrilege is committed in thy name! Wonderful indeed is the great temple. Nearly $4,000,000 were spent in its construction, and it i an enduring monument to tbe pa tience and faitb of the Mormon people. Tbe great tabernacle with its sweet-toned mammoth organ is a product of Utah skill and Utah material. The roost astonishing feature of the tabernacle is the wonderful acoustic properties of the great egg-shaped building. A whisper can be beard from the rostrum to the farthest row in the galleries. The unique architecture of the building! delightful. It is the largest auditorium in the United States, seating 12.000 people, and has the largest self-supporting roof in the nation. Between the Bee Hive and Lion houses, one square from Temple block, is the tithing office. Here these poor dupes of bright minds are called upon every year to pay of all their produce into the rollers of the Mormon church. Oats, bay, calves, chickens, pigs, colts and other products of the farm are collected punctually by the officers of the Mormon church Near the Lion and Bee-Hive ho-.ises is Eaarle "ate. Here one looks down a street 22 miles long. us straight as the barrel or a gtm aud one of tbe niot beautiful thoroughfares in the world. Three miles east of the city- and reached every 15 minutes by two lines of street railway lies tbe magnificent panorama of the Great Salt Lake Valley. Travelers of experience pronounce it the loveli est landscape in America.' One can see 100 miles of a mountain-ribbed. home-dotted, fertile valley, sentried with cities, threaded with railroads and jeweled with that iridescent gem the Great Salt Lake. Some, times at evening one can see from there the sun pass through the gateway of the clouds and sink in to the broad Pacific; then have i vision, delightful beyond descrip tion, a vision that haa tempted to that city some of the world s great est artists to vainly attempt with pigment and canvas its reproduc tion.
