It croi.'a tho mountains by tho most wonderful tncJ . of any engineer's audacity, crossing and re-crossing its own tracks and curling its iron loops about tho Tohacipi peak until Uie tracv lies on it liko a lariat thrown by Titantio hands. It crosses leagues upon leagues of desert that any century will not too reclaimed from their waste of sands: strctchej through tho bod of an ancient lake wl.eru tho barometer shows a depression tliroo huu drel feet bolow tho lovol of tho sea, and pursues its straight courso across an arid country whoro dew or rain is seldom known and water can not bo found. Tho road was built in tho face of every discouragement, and for months at a tlnio tracklaying and work had to bo suspended on account of tho fierce desert Tho iron rails and tools became so hot thxt they could scarcely Iks handled. Tho uiun could not omluro tho exposure of tho scorching sun, and in tho laud of tho marauding Apaches thero were other perils to bo dreaded. Water for the workmen had to bo carried in tauk cars, and when the northers and swept tho deserts tho work of days was leveled and obliterated in a trice. Although civilization has been can-led into this Sahara, it is only by tho railroads that it exists, although the little green oasis around euch station allows what It is capable of, and now tho desert may literally bo mndo to blossom Hko tho rose. Tho company builda double-roofed houses for Its employes to live in, the second roof being raised on posts tlnvo or four feet above tho real covering of tho house walls, in order to admit of tho freo circulation of air and to keep tho direct rays of tho sun from striking tho house. Tho second roof then oxtonds with long sloping eaves almost to tho ground, affording cover and shado all about tho buildings: Other modes of tropical Ufo are resorted to in ordoc to make existonco bearable. lvo tho PrcMldont a Tho Continent;.

It has come to be one of tho duties of tho ofilco that tho president shall allow himself to bo tints badgered. Yet, of It&elf, it i3 not a littlo wearing, and, In connection with his other duties, certainly makes a draft on the nervous energy of tho chief oxecutlvo. A few montlis ago, us wo pas.od through the room whero this dailj review takes place, and remarked upon the weary look on tho president's face, ho waved his hand toward tho middle of the room and said: "I have shaken hands with more than four hundred people hero to-day. Of course I am tired too tired to attend to what needs to be done.

The recent marringo of Mrs. Fargo, of Buffalo, presently illustrates a certain tendoncy of wealthy widows to marry deserving but not affluent editors, which is ono of tho of editorial profession. In fact, wealthy -women, both widowed and single, have frequently shown a preference for journalists, Avhlch is alike creditnblo to tho discernment of tho fomalo sex and ngrecablo to tho of a deserving profession.

In tho dining room Is hung on effulgent poster sent out by somo religious society, representing the scriptural inuldont of tho deluge. Tho ark is moored to tho strand on a yeasty sea. In tho background rises an ancient city, with 'its vaulting towers and battlements. In the foreground Noah, In flowing garb, Is portrayod leading to tho ark tho procession of paired brutes who, docile as lambs, reach two by two In a long train to ' the distant horizon. Tho wholo picture is ' gotten up in most gorgeous hues, and suffused ! with all tho tints of tho rainbow. A big lumberman entered tho room.
