Why the Kettle ttings.
De you know why a kettle "sings"
when the water is boiling?
It's like this: When the water be
(Ins to get hot, little bubble form
at the bottom of the kettle and rise
toward the top until they burst
At first they burst only a little way
from the bottom, but as the water
gets hotter and hotter they rise" high
er. and higher.
At last, when the water is boiling,
they burst right on the surface
hundreds of them one right after an
other and It Is the noise of their eon
tin uous bursting which makes the
wind we call "singing."

In the still haws of the ni-jht,
unheralded and unseen, someone or
some persons, painted the above In
iTiption on the top rim of the
Nevada-l'taa company's smelter iu
the north part of town. Of course no
one would be gul ty of such a thing
except the junior class of mining
studeuts from the University of Utah,
which has been iu camp for the
past month. When first discovered,
many Pioche citizens immediately
put two a,id two together and
reached the conclusion that the Nev
advl'tah company was about ready t
rahivenate the o'd plant and place
it 1 ! commission aa!n. One wiseacre
declared he knew positively, that
about fifteen feet of the top of
the chimney was to be taken down
and that on top of the part re
maining was to be erected a mod
ern steel statk. It was also told
about town that Manager Caskir
had been asked "to furnish President
Learnard with estimates as to the
cost of remod dicing the p'nnt so that

June 15 Some of the bunch went
over to the Gold & Silver Prince

didn't know It until this morning.

j every form Is on display in nearly ev-
try building at the Alaska- Yukon
Pa:ific exposition, the piece of gold
bearing rjck from Goldfield, Nev.,
: whi:h runs $10,000 to the ton Is
something more than an ordinary cur

it or th I . S. Geological survey de
partment in the main government
Included in this exhibit are cases
containing ores and fuels from ev
ery region In the United States. The
valuable mineral rock has been pol
ished, thus bringing out clearly the
streaks of ore. All - rock is labled
and near is a map of many colors,
the latter illustrating the ores In the
cases and giving data as to whether
ihey are easy or . difficult of ac
cess, and whether the depossits have
been worked to any great extent.
The same department has In the
mines building, a demonstrating room
of the mine rescue apperatus such as
Is now used in the coal mines of
Peusylvania and Virginia. It is a Ger
man invention, but the government
experts expect soon to have some
thing better of American make.
Within the mines building may al
so bo seen smelters In operation and
large displays of ores and fuels from
different sections of the northwest.
There are a number of miniature
mines with working models of min
ing machinery. A two-ton gold bear
ing rock and a ten-ton piece of coal,
both from the state of Washington,
are among the curiosities to be seen.
Perhaps among the most interest
ing bul dings from an exterior stand
point on the grounds 'are the Utah,
Arctic Brotherhood, and Fores
try stuctures. Tho Utah building is
built to rcsetable a house of the Pu
eblo Indians, every detail of tho ex
terior being carried out. The For
estry and Artie Brotherhood build
ings are both of logs and built for
permanent structures,
A visitor might well spend one day
in seeing, hearing and understanding
tho government building exhibit, the
most complete that Undo Sam has
yet collected. Blograph hall in the
Hawaiian building has been fitted up
expressly for .lectures and many
topics are touched upon.
Washington's Debonair Chief of Police
Cr-anlzed the First Chapter,
The Order of Taft Martyrs Is the
Itttcst, says a Washington correspond
ent. Anyone who ever suffered any
indignity, ignominy or abrasiun of the
skin on William Howard Taft's ac
count Is eligible to membership, MaJ.
Sylvester, Washington's debonair po
lice chief, will organize the first chap
ter and accept the presidency, if it
should he offered. When Judge Taft
was here MaJ. Sylvester visited with
him for an hour or so the other day,
and ttild hhu how It hapiiened. It. was
en the night of his nomlnailon by the
Chicago convention. The University
club of the city had deiermlned upon
a celebration of the event. AlaJ. 8yl
ves'er was placed in charge of the ar
rangements at Judge Taft's K street
home. Everything moved . along In
apple-pie order until Ihe people got
over-enthusins l Speeches had been
made, ard jii U:e Taft was replying.
The walldrcs-ed g. ntleman with the
enlarged bump of enthusiasm, carry
ing a cane i.s Ms as a fence rail, be
gan lo Indulge himself in wild ap
piause. He Lrandished his walking
stick Joyously and brcnght It down
with a crash on the Inoffensive crani
um of the major. Sylvester was al
most stunned by the blow. A lump as
large as an apple formed on his
classic forehead. At that Instant the
Order of Taft Martyrs was born. Judge
Taft enjoyed Ihe recital, Interspersed
as It was wilh some of Maj. Sylvea
ter's choicest bits of humor. "If there
Is anything I ran do to alleviate your
distress, count fin me," said the president-elect.
Sylvester has sent for a
complete roster of consular appoint
ments. He Is scanning the list.
