Our state and national conventions have demanded thai there .shall be piimtt ] a.ul spcwly aetion ujion these matters. The national convention which rcpresonts the Kontle- men on the other side was equally as unanimous and complete in its expres sion of a demand for the restoration to the public domain of forfeited lands , and that it .should bo done b.y the prompt ac tion of congress. The present owners of the Texas 1'acilio railroad , of all men , have no claim upon the generosity or tlio liberality of tlio people of this Union or of the American congress. February 111 , 1885. The Southern Pa- jillo : came here and stood as an ally of the government and emphatically said : Withhold this , nnd we will construct tbo road. ' 1 here is no pretext of a claim on behalf of the Texas Pacilie company. They never built a mile of road ; they never convoyed an acre of this land ; they never gave a mortgage for a dollar of value on it ; and the question .stands here naked und bold as between the United States and the Texas Pacilie com pany. Now it is proposed that we bhall donate these L'0,000,030 acres lou corpora tion which never earned them , because they did not earn the grant. .Thoy con structed ( be road in delianccof the grant. In his letters Mr. llnnlington shows dis tinctly that ho was antagonizing the Texas I'ncilic. Mr. Sherman : 1 wish to know one fact , and it is the iiirninc point in the whole case. Is it true that the Southern Pacitio , before any assignment was made to it , built its line through to the Texas border ? Mr. Van Wyck : It did. Mr. Sherman : At thai time the Texas Pacific was a subsisting corporation , and it had not earned a single aero under the terms of llio grant1 ! Mr. Van Wyck : Not an acre. Mr. Sherman : They did not even lift a shovel or a spade ? Mr. Van W.yck : No ; not an acre did they earn. ' Mr. Sherman : At that time these were the two companies cngaced in hostility with each other in seeking to get a law through congress on the subject of their grants ? Mr. Van Wyck : The Texas Pacilie , which had thin grant , was seekmg-at the time to have additional assistance by a guarantee of the. interest upon its bo'nds. J'he Southern Pacilie came here and asked congress to Mop , showing that they were able to build the road without any'aid. Mr. McPherson : Has the Southern Pacilie ever asked for any assistance fiom congress ? Mr. V'an Wyck : It not only did not ask , but insisted that such aid should not be granted it. Mr.'McPherson : That aid. should not be granted 10 the rival line ? Mr. Van Wyck : That it should not be granted to any company. Mr. McPher.son : To the Texas Pacilie ? Mr. Van Wyck : Yes , sir ; or to any company. Mr. Sherman : Did the Texas Pacific actually build a part of the line ? Mr. Van Wyck : Not a mile. Mr. Hlair : The other road claims it as nn assignee of the Texas Pacilie. Mr. Sherman : I will ask my friend the date of the assignment. Mr. Van Wyck : The date of assign ment was alter tlio completion of the road , Mr. Sherman : Then nt the time of the assignment the Texas Pacifio had not earned a single acre within the govern ment lands ? Mr. Van Wyck : It had not earned an acre of public land. Mr. Van Wyck then read extracts from Iluntington's letters , and said : Mr. llmitington had fought his way through and made the connection with the west ern line of Texas. Then it was that they made this agreeuent preventing any competition , und after that they seek to resurrect this dead grant and divide it between themselves. After the rejection of various amend ments , the bill was passed by a vote of 50 against 3. I'ACIKIC RAILUOAU SINKING PlINIr , Mr. Van Wyck moved that house bill 0771. amending the act of 1878 and preceding - ceding acts , touching tlie relations of the United States to the Union Pacific road , be referred to the committee on rail roads. Ho said that this bill relates to a very Important matter namely the securing of the indebtedness of the Pa cific railroad companies , Tha Union and Central Pacilio owu this nation $100,000- 000. The act of 187. ) provided that no new stock or bonds should bo issued except - copt as1 provided in that act. Yet from 18iil to the present time the Union Paciiiu has increased its stock largely , has issued other bonds , and guaranteed still others to u lurgo extent. In 1878 , after the Credit Mobiller had startled the whole country , congress expressly declared that no now stock should bo issued nnd no new obligations bo assumed except on the payment of those heretofore con tracted. Yet them has has been a now ihsuu of stock. It is admitted by tlio solicitor of tlie Union Pacific road , ami under a mere subterfuge that Is , they adopted the course that is pursued some times by criminals , of an alias. Hut I never knew that a criminal could escape for a violation of the law by pretending that he was called yesterday by some other name than ho is called to-day. The Union Pacific railroad became the Union Pacific railway , and therefore it is that all the pains and penultici of the law fall harmless at our feet. Under this evasion the laws of this government are set at defiance. Koferrmg to the consolidation of tbo Union Pacific and Kansas Pacific , the senator said they know the purpose and object of the consolidation to carry a worthless railroad , buying up its bonds ut a nominal value , and its stock bad not even a nominal value , und tlion consoli dating it with a company which at that time btood with its stock at 120 and be yond. In 1878 the neoplo wore aroused again , amt-rongress passed the Tliurmnu net , and still the Union Pacific dctied your legislation of 1878 , as they did your legislation , of 1873. We tulle red these men to take from lifteon to twenty mil- lions ol dollars and divide it among themselves , placing a mortgage on their property * o : t < to render your lion of no value. Now a bill has conn ) from tie Other hou e , whMi is for the purpo e of a better security for the immense debt which is owing lo the people by this rail- load. Senator Vnn Wyck th < * n referred to tlie \ isit of C. ! . Art.inis , jr. , ( o Wash ington to "ncgoliatc with congress"for that is what congress is now doing witli this almost bankrupt debtor. Is it possi ble that you propose ( o allow the Pacilie railroads to come , hero at this time , when the matter is being plowed to a final set tlement by the people , and demand that they shall bo allowed all the technicali ties they may urge , and that everything shall rest until these gentlemen choose to .say an end is reached in the courts ? Tliero is one new feature it was deemed nc.cessi'ry to change the president and place , at ils head n respectable and wealthy eitl/en of Massachusetts. Tlio people want a better guarantee than the mere respectability of the head of the concern. C. F. Adams , jr. , is president ' of the company now , but' the .same gang are behind him. A great government invests millions of acres of land and millions of dollars in money , and yet snll'ers the concern to be nfn merely in the interest of stock gamblers , nnd O. F. Adams , jr. , cannot expect , to change the course of the company , because tlie > e men control it. What lie did by his re spectability among tlie people of Massa chusetts is sought to bo done by the same re'tpeetabllity upon congress. Witli all this immense indebtedness in bonds lirst mortgage , government , income , land grant , collateral , trust bonds- Adams should have known that the .stock was of no value ; and when , innocent though ho was , ho allowed the people of Massachusetts to go into the brokers' shops with the gamblers of the Union Pacific , ho was performing unwittingly just about the same role that the. bunko men of Boston did when they inveigled C. F. Adams , jr. , into another den of gamblers. Mr. Garland having stated what the action of the judiciary committee was with reference to the Tniirinan bill , Mr. Van Wyck said that there was a certain fact which probably it would not do harm to have stated to the senate. I trust , ho said , that the secret session business is not to spread quite so far that we must take on trust everything that conies by whisper or ollierwi.se from tbe judiciary committee. Tlie Thurinan act did come from that committee. This body will probably send this hill to that committee. The Thttrman act was in re gard to tlio indebtedness of the Pacific railroad companies to the United States. Adams' visit to Washington was m re gard to the indebtedness of that road to the United States , i'lio propositions \vliicli the judiciary committee we.ro con sidering were on tlie question of that in debtedness. The bill just laid before us from the other house concerns the ques tion _ of that indebtedness. The bill which received the consent of tlio judiciary committee was to spread the payment over sixty years two generations of men ; and that bill which tlie senator pro poses hero covers the question of the in debtedness of thebc companies. Tliero has been no other question from 1878 till now. There is nothingelso to consider no question but the indebtedness. It will confirm the opinion of the American people that these corporations have suffi cient power lir > t to come 'and take from tlie government and get the congress fo sanction it , the wholesale ; spoliation of the public domain , and then , as Mr , Adams says , "Peace , be still"to these troubled waters , and that must bo obeyed. The senate mnstnotbecori'siiltcd , Aanms jssnes his circular , his telegram , and all is settled. We have eliminated all until we go into court , and all is peace. Mr. Hoar having spoken , Mr. Tnn Wyck said that after the declaration by members of the judiciary committee there will be no indisposition to give this bill that consideration which its morit.si demand , and to give it promp't attention , he did not feel inclined to take it Irom that committee , and ho withdrew his motion. AID TO COMMON SCHOOLS. I fail to discover in the senator's ( Mr. Blair's ) speech , and I fail to discover in the senator's bill , any sort of guarantee that this great bounty will reach a nor * lion of the class which ho wishes it to reach. I call bis attention to the point whether the bill furnishes any guarantee to congress or to the people , who will have to pay this taxation , that that per tion of the illiterates of the .American people will have the benctits of which be thinks will go to them. Mr. Hlnir : The bill provides that when taken within tlie states , it shall bo dis tributed without any reference to color whatever , and in such a way ns to equal ise as far as may bo the educational advantages of all classes , of all races within the jurisdiction of the state. Air. Van Wyck : But that is a mere legislative declaration in tlie bill. Is there any guarantee of the execution of that provision ? The money is to bo placed in the hands of the states , and is to be controlled by them. It is to bo distrib uted among the population of n great many state ? , to whom wo gave the elec tive franchise. That was a gift. Now you propose to give them millions of money to be distributed to edneato the children of this same race. The elective franchise was given to tlio whites and also to the blacks. The state governments were to administer the law , and notwithstanding our legislation gave the blacks the right to vote , nnd it was supported by a consti tutional amendment , yet there are gen tlemen who will say on this floor that that gift to that class has never been enjoyed. That gift was declared by legislation ; it was sustained by a constitutional amend ment of the American people , and yet it failed to reach the object sought. Now it is proposed to give millions for the pur pose of the education of that same class , lo the same channel that was to bestow the elective franchise on them that is , to the state governments , I desire to know before the debate is closed that there shall be some sort of guarantee ! to that portion e > f the people whom this money is intended to reach , April 2 , 1884. It was supposed that this billappropriating over $100.000,000 , would bo received as a peace-ofloring from ono side to the other ; but evhlently it is not received in that spirit. 1 a.sked my friend from New Hampshire what guarantee * Jitiel been given for the exercise of the elective franchise In certain states of this Union , when assurance on that point would strengthen the proposition My frienel very frankly said that thuro was no such guarantee ; that the franchise was not exercised as was intended by the congress and by the nation which made that gift. There are ono-thirel as many schools for tlio education of colored chil dren ns for the education of white chil dren ; and yet in seine of these states the illiterate colored children exceed the illiterate whites. Therefore you start with a majority of the children needing education having n minority of the schools , This bill prevents the expendi ture of any of the money for building school houses. The senator ( Mr. Jtlair ) agrees with mo that provision should bo made for building school houses. So ho sees the force of the fact that if wo do not so provide , in a year or two we shall bo answered by the etutument that the bill prevented it. SaidJ Mr. Van Wyck on n subsequent day : Some elays ago I proposed an amendment to strike out the words "not sectarian in character. " There are no public schools of a sectarian character. Then why these words as a gratuitous llirust against a sect that has done moru for education than any other ? The world is indebted to the Catholic church from the time of the dark age's , when she pro- borved the literature of the centuries pre ceding , and iu our curlier history , ivlieu shii Established schools among the In- diuils , until now she is .tiding to edneato the colored nice , and gathers her own children into 'parochial schools. A re ligion whose creed wismay not ondorsf , and whoso fnith wo m yjiot believe , is preferable ( o inlidellU' hid under the mpjt.of "liberal cliriMianfty.

THE QUEEN OF THE ARENA. A I'oop Ucliltul the SCOIIOH at tlio Circus. She was still young and , as fur as the dim light hung from the roof would ena ble a judgment to bo formed , good-look ing ; the cork-grimed eyebrows , cracked lips and dry cheeks , told that she had ap peared before the public for its ninuse- incut ; indeed the .traces of rouge were still on parts of the face , and told too truly-thai .she had laid there but a short time , only since the last evening's per formance ; indeed , when , during one of jumps through the hoop , a man's put ting on his hat startled the horse , and .so caused a false step , which brought her heavily to the ground. The experienced ring-master saw she could s-oareoly stand , and handed her out , kis.siug her hand in the usual .style , and few , if any. of the spectators knew that when rapturously applauding the most , unparalleled feat , the leap from the hoise's back through the hoop to the ground , their applause was unheard by their intended object. She had fainted immediately on reaching the dressing room , and was at once car ried to the moving chamber where she now lay. IJut to return. She took her husband's hand , saying , "Hill , I don't think I shall go around anymore. " "Don't say so , lass , it'll be all right when the doctor conies. " "No , Hill , 1 feel better , but something tells me 1'vo put on the teas ; for the last time " "No , lass , no , " was all the utterance he could lind. "Don't say so. " After a pffuso she said , "Hill , you recol lect that London chap with the French name that came down to the Doncaster races ? " "Oh , yes , I know , " said the man half angrily , as if wishing to avoid the sub- juct. "Well , you know that you said at that time that there was something between me and him. " "Well , I know it , "said the man , "but don't think of that now , don't trouble about that now " "Hut 1 must , Hill. I think I am dying , Hill dear , and I should like you to think of me when I'm gone , as I am truly , Hill. The man niade no answer. "Hill , " said the woman , with increased vehemence of manner , "do you believe I'd tell you a lie now ? " No answer still. "Hill ! Do you think M tell yon a lie now ! " said she , as thotJgh he life de pended on his answer. "No , no , lass. " said hetat last ; "I don't think you'd tell a lie anynimV ! but now" and he hesitated. "Where's Jenny ? " 'interrupted the woman. "Here ! " said ono oft the youngest women , standing up so1 that slie might be seen. "What do youirwifttv" "Jenny , you'll ' liiuf thekuy of the green trunk in the china mug frith VNelly'on it. I wish you'd look in tiie'.bdx ' . and'get my old Hible out.

" "Oh , Hill , dear , I wish you'd lift me up a little and pull it out. V on can put the broken chair under to keep me up then. " "No. never mind , " said ho ; "it'll pain you so. " "Oh , Bill , dear , I don't mind I wish you would. " He did it at last , and , after some trouble and a few suppressed groans , the box was pulled out to the middle of the floor , opened , and there wrapped up in a paper and neatly hid was the bible- , the paper greasy from contact with misused head dresses , crarlands , bands and other small accessories of the dress' of the queen of the arena. They gave it to the woman , who soon asl.cd , "Whore's Mary ? " "Oh , she is hero now , " said one of the women , and a girl about live cnme run ning in ; she iiud only been performing the part of a little fairy in the just finished scene ; her wand was still in her hand , and the gau/.o wings on her shoulders ; she took them oil' , laid down the silvered stick and came to the bed. "Mary , dc-ar , are you there ? " "Yes , mother , I'm jtiit done ; and tho' people chipped so when Julia took me on her .shoulder. " "Put her on the box she can't see her , " suggested some one. It was pushed to where the child stood and then the mother said : "Mary , I'm going away. " "Oh , mother , where to ? " ' "Hut before I go I want you to see mo and father friends again. " The child stared with wonder , but the woman , not heeding her , continued ; "Hill , dear , hayo you got the paper oft" the Hible ? Well , open it at the Now Testament. " "Here , one of you women find it. Jenny , will you ? " said the man. Jenny did and gave it back. "Now , Hill , laiso mo up a little. " "Oil , never mind , " said he ; "I know you'll get hurt. " She only looked a repetition of her re quest ; and then taking the open book from his hands said : "Hill , dear , von know you said there was .something wrong between that London chap and me. I told you at the time there was not , and you didn't ' believe me , though you didn't say so ; and you don't believe it now , " she said , with increased energy. "Now , Hill , " hear me swear that , as I believe I'm a dying woman , there was nothing between us , " She kissed the book and Mild : "Do j'ou believe mo nowv" "Yes , yes , " said the mani I'l do , I do !

Dunn , jr. , recently published by the Harpers , tlio : ilitlior gives : i vivid timi luithontio Hkcteh of the sttrooious Moun tain Mi > ilu\v massacre , tlio thought of which eveites burning indignation to-day , although nearly thirty years him- passed since this dark stain on American annals. As illustrating the stivngo spirit which incited this horrible crituo , the writer quotes from a sermon of liriglnmi Voting , published in the Ueseret News jasl prior to the wholesalemurders. . Young tells his congregation ! " 1 could refer you to lots of Instances where men have been righteously slain in order to atone for tlielr sins. 1 have seen scores and hun dreds of people for whom there would have been a chance On the last resurrcc tiou there will he ) if their lives had been taken and their blood spilled on the ground as a smoking incense to the Al mighty , but who are now angels to the devil until our elder brother , dcsus Christ , raises them up , conquers death , hell and the grave. It is true that th6 blooa of the Son of God was shed for our sins , but men can commit sins which it can never remit. " It was during the zeal which Young thus wrought among his fanatics that the massacre occurred. During the summer of 1857 Captain Faneher's train , num bering lifly-six men and sixty-two women and children , most of whom were from northern countiesof Arkansas , attempted to cross the mountains on route to Call fornia. At Salt Lake City the train was joined by several disaffected Mormons. In the train were thirty good wagons , as many mules and horses and ( iOU cattle. Their route lay through southwestern Utah , where the .Mountain Meadows are located. In these meadows they camped on the -1th of September. Here is the na tional divide. They wore on the edge of the Pacific slope. They just began to reali/.c their hopes , for they could almost look over into California , their "pronv heel land. " On Monday morning , Sep tember 7 , as they were gathered about the camp tires , a volley of musketry blazed from a gulley through whioh ran the stream that watered the meadows. Seven of the expectant travelers were slain and sixteen wounded at the tirst lire. The men had been frontiermcn too long to HKCOMK I'ANIC-bTHICKKX. Tlio women and children hurried to cover and the men returned the tire , much to the surprise of the masking assailants , who had expected to enjoy an unresisting mAssacre. The assailants were made up of Mormons masked as Indians of I'ah. Utter , Upper IM-Eads and Lower I'i-Eaeis , and all led by John 1) . l ee , a Mormon elder. The response that the bloody wretches received to their lire drove them back and they sent after rein forcements , and while waiting for the same amused themselves by pitching quoits , and occasionally shooting the cuttJoiandj tiring upon the wagons , which tho'tr'a'vclcr.s had to draw around them as a barricade and defense. On Wednesday a young man named Aden , a son of a Kentucky physician , together with a coin- , succeeded in eluding the vigi- anee of the masked savages and getting out of the meadows on their way to CedarCity , where they hoped to secure aid. At Richards' Springs they met three Cedar City men ; SVilliain C. Stew art , Joel White and Benjamin Arthur. As they stopped to water their horses Stewart SHOT AND KILLED ADKX , ana White attempted to kill the com panion , but succeeded only in wounding him , when ho escaped and made his way back to camp. His report tilled the emi grants witli despair. Aden's father was Known to have saved the life ot a Mor mon bishop , and yet his son had been assassinated by a Mormon. Already they had pierced the masks worn by many of their assailants to discover that they wpre white men were indeed Mormons , lifty- four in number. The Indians numbered about 200. The besieged prepared a statement of their desperate condition , giving as their belief that the Mormons wore their real besiegers , directing it to Masons , Odd Fellows and leading re ligious denominations. Witli this state ment they dispatched three of their best scouts , directing them to California. The scouts did not- succeed in eluding the vigilance of the murderers. They were run down by Ira Hatch , a Mormon and a leader of a band of Indians , in the Santa Clara mountains. TWO OF TIIKM WKUK MUltDKIlRD as they slept and the third was wounded , and a'fow days afterward assassinated. While the Mormons were awaiting re inforcements they knelt and formed a prayer circle and asked for Divine guidance. After prayer one of their leaders , Mayor Higbeo , said : "I have the evidence ; of ( Tod's approval of our mission. It is ( iod's will that wo carry out our instructions to tlio letter. " In carrying out these instructions they found it necessary to make use of the basest treachery. This they did by means of the white Hag borne by Leo and Wil Hani Itateman , They represented to the besieged that the Indians were terribly excited and thirsted for revenge became of the loss of some of tlielr cattle , and they promised protection to the emi grants if they would unconditionally surrender. There was no alternative. The supplies of the emigrants were giv ing out , and inasmuch as Mormons were the only white people in Utah , there was no hope for mercy from anvolher source. The terms wore accepted , and on the morning of Friday , .September 11 , they gave up all their guns and ammunition , and then placed themselves wholly in the power of those whoso appetite for blood shed had but just been whetted. They marched out from behind TJIKlll HAItltH.'APr.S. The scene that followed is thus de scribed by Mr. Dunn : "It is just after noon and the day Is bright and clear. Tramp , tram ) ) , tramp , they march down from the camping- place. The men reach the militia and give three hearty cheers as they take their places , murderer and victim , side by side. Tramp , tramp , tramp. J'hoy are rounding the point of the ridge which has served as a .screen for the Mormons and Indians for the past week. A raven Hies over them croaking. What called him there ?

The Indians spring fron their ambiish and rush upon the women from between the wagons the rillc o John 1) , Lee cracks , and a uoundc ( woman in the foremost wagon falls ol the scat. Swiftly the work of deatli goes on. Lee is assisted in shooting and brain ing the wounded by the teamster * , Kuicli and McCurdy , and as the latter raises his rillc to his shoulder he cries ; ' ( ) Lord niv Hod , receive their spirits ; it is foi Tfiy Kingdom that 1 do this.1" The tomahawk , and bludgeon , and knife soon completed the treacherous work begin by the bullet , and In a tew minute.s altei Hlgbee's signal not a man or woman wa1 left alive. Two girls were missing , am were soon found concealed in sonic neigh boring bushes. Two of tin ) Mormons and Lee was one of them-dragged tin trembling and HALF IIIAI : ) oiiu.s from their place of concealment am' ' ravished them , and then Lee oreturce them killed by the Indians.

She threw hei arms about hi * neck and implored for he life , promising she would love him al ways if he would but let her live. Hi. answer was to push back her head will one hand , when , with the other ham clasping a bowie-knife , he cut her whit neelc through to the spine. This finished the slaughter as awful a were the Sicilian vespers. The bodies horribly mutilated , were left upon the meadows a prey for wolves and bu//.ards for weeks , and it was not until SOUK months had c1a | od that the whitenei bones wore gathered together and buried Sixteen or seventeen children , ranging in ahe from a few mouths to eight years were divided up among the Mormons and so was about $70,000 in property which the emigrants possessed. The liltli children were subsequently secured b ; ( ientiles and restored to Arkansas , bu the "strong parental government1' lint never compelleJ the cut-throats to dis gorge the $70,000 and restore it to the SUKVIVOIIS OF TIIK MAfc Amr. , most of whom have always been in desperate perato need of it. A strange sequence to the awful massacre sacro is the fact that Mountain Meadows from being a verdant spot in 18."i7 , iuyit ing the fatal halt and rest of the emi grants , has become sterile and barren , literally the abode of desolation. The only atonement ever oll'erod foi the awful crime was the .shootingof Join D. Leo at the scene of the massacre or March ' . ' : ) , 1877 , nearly twenty years aftei the crime was committed , and after hi had confessed thai on that bloody occa sion he himself took live lives. The re sponsibility for the crime laid at every Mormon otlicial's door , and Hrigliam Young was their chief. They ought to have all swung for it. President John Taylor , ( Jeorge Q. Cannon and other Mormon leaders ought now to be arrested and tried , not for polygamy , but for the Mountain Meadow massacre , and ought to bo hung. They could all be convicted of being accessory , not only after , but before the fact. IJoxv | o Tell Hie Time liy Nleht , ( from the Duffulo , N. V. . " 1 iroe" .

Unlike most things of the kind , with which the country has bccu deluged heretofore , this Is a decided departure from the usual rut , und aside from being ono of the most nttrnctive things wo hare ever seen , it , involves a uew discovery in eclenca which Is both Interesting and m- 'Btructlve. So valuable was this discovery regarded it was awarded n llrst prize gold medal at the Brussel'a latcruotloual Ex position , and it seems almost like prostituting science to put it to Adver tising purposes as It Is something that Is Invaluable to institutions of learning , and would readily command u peed price If put on sale. However , the Duffy people , appreciating its Importance , have gotten it out in the highest artistic style , such aa will secure for it u permanent place in every house In the country. The device is culled Duffy's Ancient Mariner's Stellar Time-Piece , Its object being to furnish a guide whereby the cor rect time iniiy Ue ascertained at nny hour of the night , by observance of the North Star and thr e other bright stars near it , the four stars forming a Cross or Crucifix , which revolves round the celestial polo like the hands of a clock. By the aid of the Duffy's device , which represents a miniature flnmuieat and tabular dial , the time can bo ascertained almost to the min ute which is destined to render It Invalu able to Mariners , Hunters , Fisherman and to the masses generally , as after a little practice , even a child will bo able to tell the time at night- Although the device Is quite an expen- elve one , the proprietors Intend distribut ing it free and in time avcry-body iu iho country will have one.
