THl N. Y. TATrE CAPITAl..
easethlng Abeut the Meest Expealve
madliee oe Our Cotmlent.
The state capitol building is the most
expensive edifice on this continent
having now cost approaching$16,400,000
The capitol at Washington was summed
up ten years ago to have cost ahout
$13,000,000, and since that time nothing
has been added except the improvement
of the capitol grounds. The superin
tendent at Albany to;d me that he
thought he could finish the capitol if he
had l3,000,000 voted into one lump. Some
sceptics there say that the capitol wil
take $10,000,000 more. If it is to be fin
isbed with the tower, I should think i
would cost nearer $25,000,000 than $20,
000,000. While the Albany capitol hat
great depth it is in its longest part hardli
the length of the national capitol. A
good deal of the latter edifice is merely
curtain or screen to connect the wing
with the old center. The Albany capi
tol has three great stories mounted upor
a great basement, and above the c rnice
are pavilions, themselves as high as or
dinary business blocks in New York
The architecture of the capitol has man
festly changed, and beginning with
hard and massive Renaissance rusticated
it seeks in the higher stories to get into
Gothic, Eastern and Moorish forms, so
that it may be likened to a stone flower
pot with the flowers popping out above
It in impossible not to admire such a
sgnificent mass of stone. Nearly ev
erybody likes the latest additions the
best. We have had so much Roman
Renasiance put up in this country in
the past fifteen years that it has become
monotonous. One of the architects of
the Albany capitol was given the old
court house of New York city to extend,
and wzth complete indifference to what
had been already done he put his Orien
tpl architecture upon the classical body
of the building. Yet I saw a prominent
architect not long ago reading a book o
emays on architectures by this same
man, and he said: "Here is the best
writing I have ever seen in America by
an architect."
The state of New York has reached in
the new capitol at Albany the highers
monumentalising of a province known
in modern or perhaps feudal times. I
can think of no public building in the
old ducal sovereignties of Europe which
approaches in any way the proportions
and expense of this capitol of a mere
state. Neither the American congres
nor parliament nor any law-making body
on the globe had such surroundings as
the senate and assembly of the province
of New York. One architect took the
assembly in band, and another, to use
the words of Artemas Ward, "put soul"
into the senate. A fine foreign critic on
such matters would express the same
astonishment entering these two cham
bers that the oficial classes of England
do atthe magnitude of the Federal print
lag. When Mr. Hendricks was at
Albany a week or two ago, he exclaimed
that he had seen nothine in Europe like
this capitol, sad he may live many
hundred years in America before he will
see Aything like it. The world seems
to have been ransacked for building
aterial.
The assembly sits under a roof that
would make old William Rufus ple
with envy. There argrest fire-place
in these chambers which seem designed
in some distant future to be the tombs
of great governors. The paintings in
the assembly chamber are about 100

Profrseor Brooks has just secured a
good observation of Encke's comet, now
slowly brightening as the time ap
proaches for its return to its perihelion.
It is nearly sixty-six years since the
indefatigable astronomer whose name it
bears announced his great discovery
that this comet trave!s a path of short
period round the sun. The comet of
1770, found by Lexell to describe an
elliptic orbit with a periodic time of only
five and a half years, had been up to
1819 the only comet of short period ob
served nearly approaching the earth,
but Lexell's has for more than a century
been "the lost comet." The periodicity
of Encke's comet has, however, been
fully established, and on each occasion
when its return to its perihelion has
been repredicted it has, as Herschell
says, scrupulously kept to its appoint
ment.
Owing to a resistance which it en
counters from a rare ethereal medium
pervading the region through which it
moves, Encke's comet, singularly enough,
has a slowly but continually diminishing
period. When it frst became an object
of great astronomical interest its peri~ld
was 1,211 days. According to a late cal
culation of Dr. Backlund. of the Imperial
observatory at Pulkowa. its present pe.
riod of revolutions is 1.207.88 days, and
its perihelion passage in 1885 takes place
on March 7. The observations of Pro
fessor Brooks prove that the comet is
making its revolution without being ser
iously affected by planetary attraction.
and will return to its perihelion on time.

Trapping a Tigress.
She was captured about nine months
ago, in obedience to an order sent to In
dia by Mr. Reiche forone of her kind.
A tiger track was found in the jungle
leading to the reedy banks of a river.
A pit a about twenty feet deep was dug
in the path and covered over with
branches of trees and brushwood. The
natives then concealed themselves, and
at night the tigress, going down to the
water, crashed through the covering,
and lay, partially stunned and wholly
helpless at the bottom of the pit. She
was allowed to lie there for a 'week.
The mouth of the pit was again closed
and for seven days she lived in dark
ness without food or water. Such treat
ment very often kills a tiger but it is the
only known method of reducing them
from the state of savage frenzy succeed
ing their capture to anything like sub
mission.
When at last the coverings were again
removed the then auntamed Fanny was
found to be anything but subdued. She
was, however, weak, and her furious
bounds to reach the mouth of the pit
were short at Srat, and grew shorter
with every effort. Then the natives be
sn to angle for her. It was hard and
dangerous ishing, but slowly noose after
noose was dropped around her body,
her fore legs were drawn tightly to her
sides, and she was pulled up at last firm
ly bound and powerless. Other cords
were thrown around her, and with her
feet in the air and her back down, she
was lashed to bamboo poles, and carried
by a score of men to the place of embark
ation. She had very little life left in her
when she was placed on board ship and
dispatched to Germany.
When she landed in Europe, however,
she had quite recovered,and Mr. Reiche,
who is living in Germany, was delighted
with her apearance. Hie save her the
name of Fanny, and scrd her paage
to Ameriea. She is worth perhaps

One of the leading citizens of Daketa
told his errand to a piano dealer on State
street yesterday as follows:
"I want some sormt of an instrument
that will look pretty well and yet not
cost much money. Our town needs one
more piano and one more she'll have.
There'sa measly littlemall-pox stricken
hole just over the eonunty line named
8iouxtown which pretends to rival Ben
town, but she esa't touch her, stranger.
We've had fve planoe in our town ever
aince it was startedand 8iouxtown didn't

papers there, both of them dailies, came
out with a screech that Biouxtown had
fve pianos and they wanted to know
how Bentown liked that. Well1 now,
we'll just show them how we ike it.

to buy another instrument so's to make

aill Nye and His Party Met Him While
Crossing the Divide.
I think that one reason there are so
few good story tellers among us is that
the listeners are, in many instances, so
willfully and so stubbornly unapprecia
tive that it tends toward discouraging
the skillful narration of first class anec
dotes.
There were four of us together coming
across "the divide" a few years ago, and
this principle was then and there eluci
dated. Gibbon, Gregg and myself were
congenial acquaintances, and we would
have enjoyed the long ride if it had not
been for a man named Sawsage, who had
only recently e'caped from some low
priced educational institution. lie had
acquired a few rot-iron facts of the
cycloptedia variety, and with the odor of
the valedictory all through his clothes
he was making a tourpf the coast and
Colorado. He was what you might call
one of those really statistical, brainy
young reservoirs of information, who
burst forth from the alma mater nith
the intention of going to coneress in two
years, but finally compromise the matter
forty years later by running for overseer
of highways and getting saowed under
about 137 majority.
When Gibbon saw Mr. Sawsage get on
the stage he said to me in a low voice,
"Nye, we are undone. Sawsage will,
ojubtless, endeavor to relate some anec
dote to us on the way. and then I shall
commit an atroci, us crime."
But he didn't do so the first ten miles.
He contented himself by shedding other
information and explaining things that
he had just found in his physical ecogra
phy, ar.d stunning us with the hard
words that always float around in the
aquarium which young men refer to as
their brains.
Finally, however, some one reminded
him of a story. Gregg tried to turn the
conversation, but it was of no use. Said
he: "It seems that many years ago a
traveler or tourist of some description,
whose name is immaterial -"
"Funny name," said Gregg. "Don't
you think so, Gibbon?"
"Yes. Foreigner, probably. . I knew
a man named Jimmy Terrial once,
though."
We discussed the name for four or five
miles and then allowed Sawsage to pro
ceed.
"Well, as I was going to say this tourist
traveler or sojourner was propounding
inquiries relative to the s limate, changes
and isothernal-"
"Now, pardon me," said Gibbon, "hut
are you sure that word is not pronounc
ed isothernal?"
I ventured to remark that is other-mal
was the correct accent, while Gregg
sided with Sawsage. From a quiet dis
cussion this grew into a regular row
which lasted about ten miles. Tihen we
allowed the narrative to proceed.
"Well, at least, to mate a long story
short, the traveler and a native of this
country-"
"Remember his name?" asked Gregg.
"We've got the other man's name. 'e
ought to have this.'
"No," says Sawsage, "I didn't give the
tourist's name, you remember."
"I beg pardon," said Gregg. 'I don't
want to seem querulous and all the time
kicking up a row with a comparative
stranger, but you certainly gave us the
other gentleman's name."
We then had a long and highly enjoy
abole quarrel, during which Gibbon and
I challenged Gregg and Sawsage to fight
us in a dark room, each :uan to be blind
folded and armed with an adze. Best
man to pay all funeral expenses and
scrub out the room next day.
"To this Gregg agreed, but Sawsage
said he wasn't a very expert adzeman,
and wanted to apologize.
,Gilbon and I hesitated. Finally we
agreed to think it over, but in the mean
time we begged Bussage togo ahead
with his story, as we would reach the
home station in five minutes more.
At last he made out to tell the story
that Adam found under the currant bush
when he went into the Garden of Eden,
about the place where the year was
divided into "nine rmonths winter and
three months late into the fall."
At the station aweasre went on east
by the train, and we took No. 3 for Salt
Lake city. On the way Gregg, Gibbon
and I sent a telegram to Mr. Sawane
separately, which read as follows, to
wit:
