Idaho, at hecond-clatt matter.
Highest flagpole in the world.
Colonel Frank 8. Hasting, a retired
merchant of San Francisco, is pre
paring to erect in Golden Gate Park
there the highest flagpole in the
world. The giant pole will be 350
feet high, and from it will wave an
American flag 100 feet long, with
stars thiee feet across. Colonel
Hastings, who is a veteran of the
Civil War, is prepared to expend
$4,000 in the completion of this
project.
The highest bridge in the world
has just been completed in India
by a Philadelphia company. The
bridge is a railway structure and is
52,260 feet long and 320 feet high.
. in constructing the bridge, the com
pany used 40,000 tons of steel all of
which was shipped from this coun
try. The contract was awarded in
competition with the bridge build
ers of England, the Americans win
ning out on design and on the time
required for erection. The material
was shipped in September last year
and the work was completed in
November this year. It is said the
undertaking has never been surpass
ed in engineering hietory. It stands
as another monument m foreign
lands to the superior skill and in
genuity of the Yankee.
John F. Hurley, a pawnbroker,
who was recently elected mayor of
Salem, Mass., announces that he
will give his salary of $2500 a year
,to the poor of the city. He will take
. Office on January 1 and will at once
'begin to disburse his income. He
Will not intrust the woik to charita
ble institutions, but will personally
distribute aid to the deserving ones.
He says he will give away coal and
Wood enough to keep everybody
Warm in winter and spend any bal
ance in summer excursions for the
worthy poor.
John Bull did not have the hap
piest Christmas this year. There
Used to be great delight in the
Bo(a)er chase but it has got to be
foo serious an affair now to be great
ly relished. The war in South Afri
ca still hangs on and thé Boots seem
to be as aggresive as ever and as
numerous. This is a case the Irish
man's flea, you thought you had
him but when you looked for him
he was gone aiffi biting as hard as

"Thé publisher of a newspaper has
one thing to sell and one thing to
rent. He has the newspaper to sell
and the space in his columns to
rent. Can ànyone inform us why he
should be expected to give away
either the one or the other? He can
if he so chooses, and he does, as a
matter of fact, furnidh a great deal
of space rent free. But it does not
follow that he ought to be expected
to do so. If it be récoguized as a
contribution, exactly as would be
the giving away of sugar or cofiee
by a grocer. But strange to say it
is not looked upon in that light at
all ; and yet everybody knows that
the existance of a newspaper de
pends upon the rent of its space an d
the sale of the paper, just the same
as'a merchant's success depends on
Celling his goods, instead of giving
them away."
The British fear a general upris
ing in Cape Colony, and their fears
seem to be well grounded. The sit
uation in South. Africa is far more
serious now than ever before. The
war to the death, or life of the re
publics has just fairly commenced.
If the legislature soon to assemble

a just probate law they will have

Mine, on Fire For Forty-Two
Years.
At Tamaqua Pennsylvania, the
officials of the Lehigh Coal and
Navigation company are jubilant
over the fact that the fire in the
celebrated burning mine at Summit
Hill, which started forty-two years
ago, is now under control and it is
said that the next two years will
see it extinguished.
The fire, which has consumed
about thirty-five acres of the finest
coal land in the anthracite coal re
gion, has moved westward towards
Landsford. Two immense drilling
machines, which have been constan
tly probing for the fire, have now
honey-combed the earth to the west
of the burning portion. Culm is be
ing poured into these holes and a
solid mass will thus confront the
fire.

Why The Rule Shouldn't Apply
Down in Palönse Country several
years ago, The Spokane (Wash.)
Outburst observes, Farmers Alliance
were being organized in every pre
cinct. A young attorney, who had
just moved in. conceived the idea
that if he joined it might aid him
in securing business. He confided
his desire to a friend, a member of
the organization, and to his pleas
ure he was admitted at the next
meeting. Some time afterward the
young attorney discovered that the
by laws barred lawyers from mem
bership. Considerably surprise!, the
attorney asked his sponsor how he
had fixed it so that he, the attorney,
had been admitted.
"Why," came the Frank reply,
"I told the boys you were such a
darned poor lawyer that I didn't
think the rule should apply in your
case."
"Marvel of production" is well
applied by the Oregonian to our
magnificent Inland Empire, in re
viewing a circular sent out by the
Lewiston Commercial Club as à plea
for the opening of the Columbia
river to navigation by a canal
around the rapids at the Dalles.
Productions including 40,000,000
bushels of wheat, or 60,000 carloads ;
3,600 carloads of fruits; 1,700 car
loads of wool; 4,000 carloads of live
stock, and above 10,000 carloads of
other products, make up a grand
total of more than 80,000 carloads
from the Inland Empire for the yëar
of 1900, of which fully fifteen per
cent is credited to the district of the
Clearwater and ùpper Snake rivers,
centering at Lewiston. Yet we all
know that more railroads and an
open riyer would benefit every part
of this interior country and increase
its productiveness many fold. Every
man interested should write the
congressmen and senators demand
ing that the government shall at
once build the Dalles Celilo.
China has accepted the detaands
of the powers, which rather took
their breath away, as they were not
prepared for so ready an acceptance
Canada is planning for independ
ence, though the details of the plans
are not public yet.

WINTER HOMES IN VINELAND
Are enjoyed by scores of ranch
ers and miners. They make gar
den homes here for their fami
lies because of the excellent
schools, churches, mild and
healthful climate, good roads
the year round, negr neighbors,
social advantages, pure cheap
water, and all {the rest that go
to make life worth living. The
fine gardens and orchards and
poultry on the two to ten-acre
tracts make a good living for
the families. The ranchere and
miners keep up their business
on the hills and in the moun
tains and make their money
there. Is this plan of living
worth your investigation?
