Ono man in Phenix has shipped (500
dozen quail from there this season and
has orders for 300 dozen more. They
are trapped by men and boys who get
30 cents per dozen for them.
The first failure caused by the un
usual state of the grain market and
the drop in shipping charters occurred

firm of Loewenthal, Livingston & Co.,
shipping and commission merchants,
was attached for $10,000. Their lia
bilities are about $220,000.
Bishop John Sharp, one of the old
residents of Salt Lake City, a promin
ent and substantial man, and one of
the directors of tho Union Pacific
railroad, died Wednesday. He was a
native of Scotland and had been at
Salt Lake since 1850. Ho constructed
the most difficult parts of the Union
Pacific through Weber and Echo can
yons. The Maricopa county supervisors

The order of the Mexican govern
ment allowing but eight days for nn
American team to remain on Mexican
soil, was copied after the American
law which allows a Mexican team ten
days on American soil. This law was
enacted by the American authorities
to protect the American teamster
against tho Mexican who would if he
had six months leave on American
soil, go to teaming for a living at a cut
rate, way below the American team
sters' figures. The Mexicans aro not
slow to learn and in order to protect
their teamsters, passed the eight day
clauso against American teams, which
will compel American mining com
panies to employ Mexican teams to do
their hauling. Ofcourse tho outlook
is not pleasant to those who havo tak
en up their residence in Sonora, but
in the language of the immortal
Tweed "What are you going to do
about it?1' Protection always has
been and always will be a two edged
8word.
"German
Syrup"
T. C. Davis, Rector of St. Tames'
Episcopal Church, Eufaula, Ala.:
"My son has been badly afflicted
with a fearful and threatening cough
for several months, and after trying
several prescriptions from physicians
which failed to relieve him, he has
been perfectly restored by the use of
two bottles of Bo
An Episcopal schee's German Syr
up. I can recom
Roctor. mend it wi-thout
hesitation." Chronic
severe, deep-seated coughs like this
are as severe tests as a remedy can
be subjected to. It is for these long
standing cases that Boschee's Ger
man Syrup is made a specialty.
Many others afflicted as this lad
was, will do well to make a note of
his.
J. F. Arnold, Montevideo, Minn.,
writes: I always use German Syrup
for a Cold on the Lungs. I have
never found an equal to it far less
a superior.

THE MUTUAL FRIEND.
vl Great Factor In the I,ove Making oi
South America.
All the love making in South America
must bo carried on through a third per
son. If a youth desires to mnrry ho
does not speak of it to the girl whom ho
wishes for a wife, but to his own father.
The latter, if ho approves, fjoes to tho
father of the young lady and the two
discuss tho matter tog-ether. Each tells
tho other what he will do for the young
folks, and between them a contract is
drawn up respecting settlements and all
such things.
The intending bridegroom is not per
mitted to sco his fianeeo for a moment
before tho wedding. As soon as that
event has taken place there is a wed
ding.breakfast, and, usually without the
formality of a preliminary tour, tho
couple settlo down to living, either in
an establishment of their own or more
often in the house of tho pareuts of tho
brido or the groom.
One drawback about marriage in
South America, says the Cincinnati Com
mercial Gazette, is that in taking a girl
to wife it is apt to be considered a mat
ter of course that the young man mar
ries her whole family also, lie lias no
occasion for surprise or disgruntlemont
if, together with his bride, fifteen or
twenty people come to share his house
hold and domestic comforts, including
all her available relatives and their
servants.
These Latins are a very clannish race,
and a father is apt to be willing to
adopt a raft of sisters and cousins and
aunts, not to mention a "mother-in-law,
rather than have his son or daughter
leave tho family roof. It is duo to the
strength of family attachment among
them that hotels in South America are
only for strangers from afar; the na
tives always find hospitable entertain
ment among the kindred.
' ANTS AS ARCHITECTS.
Surprising Intelligence Displayed bf the
Inflects.
All sorts of wonderful stories are told
of the works of ants and especially of
their engineering powers. It is of
course within the knowledge of the
most casual observers, says the llrook
lyn Eagle, that the ant is a most sur
prising insect in point of what wo call
intelligence, and its simpler feats are
amusing to all. One of tho most recent
incidents wo have seen related of the
ant's power in tho way of cngin?ering,
planning and building is that which is
credited to a Glasgow source: A pastry
cook in that city found his shop invaded
by a colony of ants, who feasted night
ly on the delicacies deposited on a cer
tain shelf. After cudgeling his brain
for some time in order to discover a
plan for stopping the depredations of
tho active insects he resolved to lay a
streak of molasses around tho tray
containing the coveted food. In duo
time tho ants came forth in their hun
dreds, and were led toward the feast
by their chief. On reaching the line
scouts were then sent out to survey,
and eventually the word of command
was passed- round, and instantly the
main body of the ants made for a
part of the wall where tho plaster had
been broken by a nail. Ilere each
snatched up n, tiny piece of mortar and
returned to the spot indicated, where
their burdens were deposited upon the
molasses, f' By this means and after an
infinite amount of labor a bridge was
formed, and the triumphant army
marched forward to partake of tho
fruits of victory, tlic baker meanwhile
standing by filled with wonder.
IMPROVISING A DRESS SUIT.
An American's Experience In "to London
Theater.
"About eight years ago." said an
American traveler, "I was in London,
Eng. One day I bought a stall to see
Patti at tho Royal. A stall corresponds
to our boxes. When the evening came
I took the ladies around and walked in
at the door. But I did not get far,
" 'You cannot como in here,' said the
doorkeeper.
" 'Why not?' I asked, in surprise;
'hero are my scat tickets.'
' 'Well, you cannot enter,' he replied,
decisively; 'your coat is a frock, and
nothing but dress suits aro allowed.'
"I expostulated. I told him that my
hotel was a long way off and that the
ladies would bo greatly disappointed. I
was an American and did not know the
rule of the theater.
"Finally ho told me to go into the
dressing-room, where the attendants
might be able to fix mo out all right.
"I went, expecting to pay two or
three crowns for the loan of a coat.
Tho fellow looked at me a second,
whipped a pin from his lapel and pinned
my coattails back, and I found myself
in evening dressl
"I gave tho man half a crown."
