A Lasting Monument. "Had the people of the United States," said an : employe of the rail road companies here, "taken the mon ey, they put into the Dewey home, which he immediately gave away and for which he had no personal need, and with it established seme charity to bear his name, they would have equal ly as well shown their appreciation of his services while they would have erected to him a monument to endure long ufter the battle of Manilla shall have been forgotten. "In the same way a lasting mocn mcnt could have been ereoted to C. P. Huntington's memory by what iias been expended in the temporary tokens of mourning displayed along the line of the great system his genius devised and developed. Taking El Paso as the standared, the draping of buildings on the Southern Pacific system, Atlan tic and PaciBc divisions, has not cost probubly less than $100,000. What a magnificent foundation this could have made for a home or other method of relieving the want of widows and or phans whose husband and fathers lost life or health in the service of the road. The draping is for a day; such mon ument would last while the road en dures." El Paso Times. And if all the printers in (he United States would quit wearing socks and devote the money thus saved to mak ing a home for superanuated, typos and broken down editors, a splendid eleemosynary institntion with a big fund to support it, would be the re sult. . And if all the gentler sex would forego long hair and eut their flowing tresses, the money now wasted in hair pins, if properly directed, would cre ate a woman's hospital with a big en dowment fund in every big city in the United States.

The Tombstone Prospector says: 'At no time within the history of Ari zona has there been as great activity in mining circles as dnring the last year and at present. The Star says in connection the surveyor general's of fice furnishes some interesting figures which show plainer than any amount of writing just what Arizona is doing in the mineral way. The year la the surveyor general's olEae ended July 1, up to that time $11,333 has been de posited to cover the cosU of surveying mining claims and doing the necessary office work incident to application for a patent. This was more than the ag gregate for any three previous ytars combined. The year preceding $3, 945 was deposited, makinir a balance in favor of last year of $Z,300. Proba bly the moat striking showing, how ever, is in the number of surveys for patents made last year, numberiug 408, a large and significant increase over me year previous wnen only llio sur veys were made. The surveyor gen- earl s office also used up last year the the entire appropriation of $10,- 000 for surveying nurposes. which shows great activity. The work this year is being poshed and there is no let up in the constant number of applications for surveys. Eight engi neers are at work surveying the forest reservation on the Grand canyon here are 40,000 for the field and office work Arizona has constantly been tak ing higher place in the column of wealth producers but if the present rate of in crease in mines opened and mineral wealth developed of all kinds, is kept up it is only a question of time when she goes to the head of the list.

Miss Lulu Buck, who lives with her parents at Madison, Conn., had an ex citing fight with a big black snake in the pantry of her home. Miss Buck had been busy preserving fruit which she had set out to cool on the sill of the pantry window. She went in to remove the jars when they were sufficiently cooled. The door closed behind her with a bang that sent draft) through the little room, blowing a pile of loose papers. Presently the pile of papers began to move across the room and to arise from the floor. Miss Buck stooped over to pick up th papers. Her haud gripped something that moved and felt like a piece of rubber hose. She drop ped the papers, but no more quickly than a big blacksnake emerged and struck one of her knees. ' Miss Back screamed, and the snake slid to the far corner near the door,, shutting off re treat and making ready for fight Realizing her danger; she nerved her self, and seized a big carving knife, The snake coiled and struck again Miss Back aimed a cross blow, but the snake moved quick and knocked the knife from her hand. The girl seized a meat ax and swung it quickly, catch ing the snake. The snake straightened out, and Miss Buck stepped on it, deal-1 ing death blows. as nor adversary cegan; to craw Greatest in leavening strength, a spoonful raises more dough, or goes further.

Many mixtures, made in imitation of baking powders, are upon the market. They are sold cheap, but are dear at any price, be cause they contain alum, a corrosive poison; pry an is called a dictator because he refused to aecept the nomination for. the presidency unless the platform suited him. The opposition feels like must say something mean about him, but we believe every thinking man among them secretly admires and honors him for his, manliness and patriotism; and every time they com pare him with their own candidate it is to McKinley's disadvantage. Bryan has his own ideas as to right principles, and he refuses to be swayed from the path of duty as he sees it, even to gain the highest office in the land. Mc- Kinley is willing to accept office on any old platform, and to swallow any old dose his- bosses prepare for him. Sometimes he ventures an opinion of bis own, but if it proves contrary to the ideas and wishes of the bosses be never refuses to discard it. Anybody can see the difference between the two men. If Bryan is elected he will be president. If McKinley is elected it will only be another four years' reign of Hanna. Jefferson Democrat. She Wn. Posted on I.ors. A young married woman, whose' Home is in that vague region known as uptown, startled some of her rela tives greatly the other day by a quite unexpected humorous onslaught She ia an impetuous young woman and she was lust ready to go out, downtown, presumably, when she suddenly turned back and rushed into the family sitting-room. Several members of the family were there and she exclaimed: "Did you hear about those New York fakirs?" "What about them?" cried some-' body. "Why, they're just earning londs of money selling canes made from the log of the Olympia! He ha, ha!" And she rushed from the house to catch the oar. All the listeners laughed save one. "I don't see," said this exception, "how they could spare it." "Spare what?" queried one of thej laughers. "That log." "Do you know what a log is?" The exception smiled in a superior' manner. Hadn't she just been up the lakes? .'.. "Why, it's one of those timbers," she said, "that they hang over the side of the boat to keep other boats from bumping into it."

Buell, of the Asso ciated Charities, who has returned from a visit at Burlington, Wis, told the Milwaukee Sentim-1- of a peculiar fatality near that plije, in which a man driving a- mo .viog machine was struck by lightning and left still sit ting on the machine as 'though petri fied. William Olp was the -sictim of the accident,' and was a farm hand em ployed by Peter Bartlesou ou the liar low farm. He was in the meadow at work when a sudden thunder storm came up. lie raised the knives from the ground and still had his ha-nd on the lever controlling the blade when a bolt of lightning struck. The iron of the ma chine seemed to attract the lightning, for both horses were killed and- Olp was struck dead. While tlie norses fell together when killed by the stroke, Olp remained in his seat on the ma chine dead thocgh be was. The storm came up in the early af ternoon and Olp's employers supposed that be had gone under shelter when the storm broke and resumed his mow ing soon afterward when the sky was again clear. When he did not return to the house for supper his employer began to look for him. The horses and the mowing machine were found to be out of their accustomed place in the barn, and the farmer and bis fam ily started out to the field to hunt for the missing man. It was' dark when they started, and after a short search they saw the fig ure of a man sitting upright outlined against the sky. One hand rested on the machine' lever, while the other firmly grasped the reins with which the dead man had been guiding his horses when death came. His body was rigid as iron when found, and it was with considerable difficulty that the limbs were straightened after an undertaker had been summoned. Prospector. ; The republicans say that we, liuul down the flag when it h been hoisted. If that is true, h you going to get the flag awa. l'ekin? Our soldiers are the) carried the stars and stripes them, and if your doctrine, that ever the flaff floats over a la land cannot be given back, it you cannot get your soldiers from PekW ; and if you' follow doctrine that you followed in J you have got to take the Chinese empire, because we tool the islands of the Philippines, : that doctrine is true, we have take the 400,000,000 subjects there. It is a thousand times to haul down the flag in the Phil Islands and raise the flag of the pine Republic, than to change o from the flag' of the republic flag of the empire. W. J.
