Wilson has purchased tho va cant lot formerly owned by Wm. Daniels, and is building a fine barn thereon. The lot lavs between the foot of Congress street aud Front street and a petition has been circulated ask ing the council to open and continue Congress street through it. If con demnation proceedings should be brought to assess damages to the owner for taking it, the city would have to stand live-sixths of the expense and the abutting property owners one-sixth. Mr. Wilson would undoubtedly want a good sum for the property, as real estate has advanced in price during the past six months.

Curious bill dangerous freaks of na ture frequently found iu the deserts of Arizona are called sumlderos by the Mexicans ami Indians. They are mask ed pitfalls of ipiicksand that occur In the dry plains ami are covered with a treacherous crust of clay that has been spread over them In line particles by the wind and baked dry by the sun. The peculiar properties of the soil retain all the moisture drained Into them after the Infrequent rains and al low It to be tlltered to unknown depths, so mat a man or a nurse or a cow or a sheep that once steps upon that de ceptive crust Instantly sluksout of sight beyond hope of rescue. The sumldoros are on a level w ith the sur face of the desert. There Is no dan ger signal to mark them, ami their surface cannot be distinguished by the ordinary eye from the hard clay that surrounds them. They occur most fre- queutly In the alkali covered flats and are often 1.1 or L'0 feet In diameter. Sometimes they are only little pockets or wells that a man can leap across, but the longest pole has never found their bottom. A stone thrown through the crust ulnks to unknown depths, and no man who ever fell Into one of them was rescued. They account for the mysterious disappearance of many men ami cattle. Chicago Record.

Four CourtMhlp Suudnya. The four Sundays of November are observed as fete days In Holland. They are known by the curious names Re view, Decision, Purchase and Posses sion and all refer to matrimonial af- rairs, .November In Holland being the month par excellence devoted to court ship and marriage, probably because the agricultural occupations of the year are over ami possibly because the lords of creation from quite remote antiquity have recognized the pleas antness of having wives to cook and cater for them during the long winter. On Review Sunday everybody goes to church, and after service there is a church parade Iu every village, when the youths and maidens gaze upon each other, but forbear to speak. On Decision Sunday each bachelor wno is seeking a wife approaches the maiden of his choice with a ceremoni ous bow and from her manner of re sponding Judges whether his advances are acceptable. Purchase Sunday the consent of the parents Is sought If the suit has prospered during the week. Not until Possession Sunday, howev er, do the twain appear before th world as actual or prospective brides and grooms. Denver News. SZ FINE VENETIANS, POPLINS AND S BROADCLOTHS.

The term -secret service money" Is usually applied to a fund placed at the disposal of ministers to be expended at their discretion in promoting or pro tecting the Interests of this country. These moneys consist of n sum of LV, k0 iinnually Included in the estimates, Iu respect of w hich ministers are only required to make a declaration that the moneys spent hae been expended "In accordance with the Intentions of parliament." As ministers are required to give no account of their stewardship, it Is ob vious we have no means of knowing how these moneys are expended. Tho reader, however, who carries his mind back to episodes within his knowledge, such as the collaj.se of the Fenian con spirators or of their later develop-! ment, the -Irish Invincible." will have little dllliculty in realizing how India pensablo a fund of this kind Is to the protection of a state and of under standing the infinite variety of uses winch it may be applied.
