A gentleman in California has been trying experiments with a spider, and he seems to think that the spider en joys certain sounds even after he find. l they are not caused by the buzzing of n fly caught in the web. This is what a San Francisco paper says about it: "A gentleman was watching some spiders when it occurred to him to try what effect the sound of a tuning fork would have upon them. He suspected they would take It for the buzzing of a fly. He selected a large, ugly spider which had been feasting on flies for twe months. The spider was at one edge of its web. Sounding the fork the man touched a thread at the other side and watched the result. “Mr. Spider had the buzzing sound con veyed to him over the telephone wires, but how was he to know on which par ticular wire it was traveling? He ran to the center of the web very quickly * and felt all around nntil he touched the thread against the other end of which the fork was sounding, then, taking another thread along, just as a man would take an extra piece of rope, he ran out to the fork and sprung upon it. Then he retreated a little way and looked at the fork. He was puzzled, ne had expected to find a buzzing fly. lie got on the fork again and danced with delight. Evidently the sound was music to him.” J. W. If ITU US, J. V. DAVIS. President. Vice-President. A. C. Morr.TON. Cashier. BANK OF MEEKER (Successor to J. W, Hugos & Co..

Free from Ammonia, Alum or any other adulterant 40 YEARS THE STANDARD. MEEKER, COLO., SATURDAY, JANUARY 4. JSDG. Colorado. Under the above caption the Salt Lake Tribune, which is, editorially, the peer of auy in the west, gives our state the following send-off: “Colorado is tlte must remarkable of stales. When a cat is dropped out of a window she always lands on her feet. Drop Colorado out of any number of windows, and Colorado always lands on her feet. Three years ago almost her whole attention, in a mining way, was devoted to silver. Now silver bus be come of secondary importance with her in one sense, and with the discoveries of gold, her people now claim that South Africa is a mere bagatelle, and they -1 back their faith by their works. The product for this year is going to bo very great, and the claim is that so.far it is but surf ice-scratching; that when tl»«*y get more mills and sink deeper in the j fissures, they will astonish the world. ; But the great feature of Colorado is not till* gold mines or the silver mines; it is her people. They all swear by each other and by their state. They are brave enough to undertake anything, and they have magnetism enough when lheir own means fail to draw to them the needed capital. They are always enthusiastic. Their hope amounts to an absolute conviction, and as they pre sent their views they hypnotize tire world to believe them and to come and | help them. The Colorado man who i would not make an affidavit that Colo rado has the richest gold and silver i mines in the world would he no good citizen of that state, and when the j statement is made, if any one casts a I doubt, they show the gold and silver to prove their words. They are just as ceitaiu that, if they had no mines, they would have one of the foremost of agri cultural states. They insist that they | raise fruit which has a better flavor than that raised in any other place, and when it comes to flowers, while the winds whistle and the snows fly over their hills, they send out half a carload of chrysanthemums to show that theirs is an Italian climate. They are a catch ing people, and they have a glorified state sure enough. Colorado is Utah’s most prosperous neighbor, and it is with all heartiness that the Tribune sends them happy New Year’s greet ings this morning.” Meets with Approval. All the Denver papers approve of uuvernoi Aicnuires appowTiTueiiL ol lion. John W. Lowell to investigate the manner of conducting the state institu tions ami incidentally look into the financial affairs of the state. The News (Populist) says: “Mr. Lowell is recognized as one of the most capable and trustworthy men that ever held a seat in the state legislature, and has for two terms been one of the most popular members of that body. The appointment of such a man is regarded as specially fortunate.” The Evening Post (Independent Dem ocratic) says: “Mr. Lowell’s experi ence as chairman o( the finance, ways and means committee of both the Ninth and Tenth general assemblies especially fits him for the important work. He is. perhaps, the best posted man in Colo rado on the state's finances.” When it comes to talking it must he admitted that the senate is several points ahead of the house. It wasn’t President Cleveland, but a j constituent of Representative Lacey, of lowa, who recently wrote: “There is nothing I read with so much pleasure as obituaries of congressmen.” DOGS FOR USE IN WAR. rrtklm-tl to carry Ammunition #ml to Seek Out tlio Wound oil In Hattie. Some very interesting experiments us to the utility of war dogs were recent ly made in connection with the Dres den international dog show on the racecourse near Dresden,says a foreign exchange. A company was supposed to be covering some transports of horses against an imaginary enemy. In order to do this more effectually some non-commissioned officers, a ;com panied by dogs, were sent forward to watch the approach of the enemy. They advanced about a mile and a quarter, whilst keeping up communi cation with the company by means of the dogs. In this way the company was kept fidly informed ns to the movements of the enemy, and could stop the transport of horses in good time before the attack. The same dogs were also used for carrying ammunition to the firing line, each dog being provided for tills pur po.se with a kind of saddle holding shoal. !tireo hundred cartridge.,. The ani n: s will go along the lines, stop pin, in front of every man, who takes tin.! number of cartridges ho requires. When the ammunition is exhausted the dog will hurry back to receive a fresh supply, and thereupon resume the dis ribution. The dogs are also trained to find the wounded and attract the attention of the ambulance men in various ways, some remaining near the man and barking until assistance arrives, some running off to find an ambulance man and lead him to the spot, aud others taking the man’s forage cap or tearing away a piece of his clothing and carry ing it to the attendants.

According to the Washington Star the Smithsonian Institution Ims just re ceived information, not yet printed or made public in this country, of the re cent discovery at Tol-cl-A maria, in upper Egypt, of a number of tablets re lating to the history of Jerusalem nnd dating back sLx hundred years earlier than any records hitherto known. When it is understood that these tablets of stone arc letters passed between the King of Jerusalem and the Pharaoh of Egypt four hundred years before the birth of David, who was the father of Solomon, some notion will be formed of their extreme interest. Several of the letters were addressed to the ruler of Egypt by the King of Jerusa lem, Abdi-Taba. The cities of Pales tine were at that timo tributary to Egypt, and in, one of the letters the writer says: “The Habiri people are conquering the cities of the King"—i. c., the cities tributary to the Pharaoh— ‘‘therefore the King may turn his face to his subjects and send troops. If the troops arrive this year the countries of the King, my Lord, may be saved, but if no troops arrive the countries of the King, my Lord, will exist no longer." This tremendous “find” at Tel-el- Amaria includes two hundred tablets, largely of Babylonian conciform script, which is thus discovered for the first time to have been in use at so early a period in Egypt and Palestine. Many of the other tablets are dispatches of about the same date from prefects of other cities of Palestine to the Pharaoh. Some <»f the inscriptions are in an un known language, which no one has so far been able to translate. Solomon himself would have looked upon these tablets as remote antiquities. A He veil Coincidence. Mr. Simeon Duck, of Victoria, Brit ish < Vihimbia, is a seventh 6on of a sev enth sun. In 1867 he left London on the seventh day of the seventh month, and arriv m this country ou the seventh day of the following month at seven o'clock in the morning. When seeking el< ; tiu:i to the British Columbia Parlia ment Is 1 was elected by a majority of seven votes. -On the following election he w;: -defeated by the same mythical number. Mr. Duck declares the above true in every particular. A Conscientious Tramp. The following note left by a tramp was found on the kitchen table by a lady of Youngstown, 0., the other day: ‘•My Dear Good Lady Friend: I came here a stranger, and found nobody at home. I was hungry and took a piece of pie. I will returu some day and pay you for it. Much obliged. Tills is all I have got. Keep them until I return.” With the note was left a deck of play* ing cards. mirSSaid She SioNßEfjs 6%aß>—. J. W. Hugus & Company (INCORPORATED) JOBBERS AND RETAILERS OF GENERAL MERCHANDISE.

QUEER IDEAS OF AMERICA. The Oenuam Think It Ife Not a Large Country. Americans who leave the beaten track of travel in Germany are always ob jects of more or less interest to the peo ple, says the Now York Tribune. Then is the curiosity due to the great distance that the visitors have come from, and besides a German who has not a rek: tive or at least a friend in this country is a rarity. The traveler is asked all kind., of questions about the United States, and often a most lamentable ignor ance is displayed by the Germans about the distant country. A case in point is related by a New Yorker who spent some time one summer in a village in Hanover, at some distance from a rail road. lie was visiting a physician whom he had met at Berlin in the uni versity days of both of them. One afternoon the physician, accom panied by his friend, drove to a farm house to visit a sick child. When lie alighted the American remained in the vehicle. In the course of his call the physician happened to mention that his companion was from the United States. As they drove away an old lady rushed out of the house, gesticulating wildly, and cnlling ou them to stop. They did this, anil she ran up. all out of breath, shouting: “llow is my son? ne is in America." She did not hear of the New Yorker’s nationality until after the physician left the house, and ran to make inquiry about her son, who had l>een in Amer ica for fifteen years. The woman had received no word from him or about him for several years. She thought, ol course, that every one in America knew every one else there. The foreigner \ had much difficulty in explaining that he had never heard of her son, who was in Minnesota when he wrote his last letter. For some time the good woman believed that the New Yorker was an iin]>o.stor and that he did not come from America at all. Advertise in The Herald.
