Johnson is to have charge oi some map

region in the Big Horn into which he
penetrated had never beforebeen visited
by a scientific man. Very rarely is it
visited at all, and then on lyin' prospect
ors and hunters, who go everywhere in
the mountain country. Johnson related
how he climbed to the top cf a mount
am lo,500 feet high, which hecalls Cloud
l eak. On reaching the very highest
pinnacle he saw a great glacer stretched
out before him. The mass of ice was
not less than five miles long,and at the
bottom extended out into a lake about
three-fourths of a mile. The lake is a
small but very picturesque sheet of wa
ter. In it the explorer saw icebergs
which had broken off the giacier. The
glacier in every way resembled those of
the Alps, and was moving constantly
but by infinitesimal degrees. The great
quantity of ice in the lake, too, seemed
to lower the temperature considerably
and at the time Johnson vas there—
three weeks ago—a portion of the body
of water was covered with ice three or
four inches thick. Another mountain
loomed up less than two miles from
Cloud Peak, and from a distance it looked
as if it would be impossible for any man
to climb it without cutting a stairway in
the rock. There were precipices thou
sands of feet high, and even on the gla
cier there was one place where a man
could stand and drop stones down into
the water, a distance of 1,000 feet,.

A California company has leased for a
term of years a coal mine near Kelso, |
about half a mile from the Cowlitz river !
and three miles from the Columbia, in
Cow-litz county, and is preparing to de- !
velop it. A tunnel has been run in 200 !
feet on the upper vein, and from this
point a shaft has been sunk eighty feet
passing through five strata of coal. The
first is seven feet in thickness, the sec
ond two and one-half feet, the third four
and one-half feet, the fourth five and
one-half feet and the fifth seven and one

upper stratum to last for a generation or

company, has had a working test of the
coal made at the power-house of the ca
ble-road company at Portland, which
proved very satisfactory. It is a good
