Tho most valuablo natural bridge In
tho world is to bo 'found in Arizona,
lying across a deep chasm -10 feet in
width. It is a petrilled tree about four
fcut in diameter and about 100 feet in
length. It is puro agate all through,
mid therefore is much more valuablo
as regards material than any bridge of
marble or granite would be.
A Mont Wonderful ICuroril.
Tho City of Mexico has been doing
business for !175 years. There is prol
ably no capital in tho civilized world
that during that period has been tho
center of more wars of conquest and
more internal revolutions, and yet
through all tho troublesome days of
these centuries tho city has retained
its financial reputation free from blem

to maintain uho dignity of tho United

discredit upon tho nation.
A llttmlrml Yearn lloncrt.
The reason why tho Great Salt lako
in Utah is growing smaller, according
to Prof. .lames E. Talmage, is that tho
volume of water from Its four tributa
ry rivers Is being moro and more di
verted by irrigation, l'rof. Talmugo
says tho water of tho laleo is growing
each year moro acrid as it shrinks in
Blue, and he thinks that In another 100
years It will bo replaced by a glitter
ing bed of dry salt.
AVould Cut Short Mm Hold Supply.
There is one particular eil'eet which
would come from a war between En
gland and tho South African republic
which is seldom considered. Such a
war would cut short tho world's gold
production by a good many millions of
dollars. Tho richest gold mines of tho
world are in the dominions of Paul
Kruger, and Krugcr's organ in London
recently said that if war should talco
place ono of tho first acts of tho Trans

Following tho robbery of 37 from a
saloon, Dennis McCutcheon, aged 10,

Now York, Sept. 12. Tho World
prints an interview with .Jacob U.
Schiirinnn, president of tho Philippine
oommlnsion. Mr. Schurman said Admi
ral Dewey's statement that there was
no difference of opinion between him
self and the admiral was correct. "No
question," said Mr. .Schurman, "ever
eamo up at u meeting of tho commis
sion on which the admiral and myself
were not in thorough accord." Con
cerning tho relative capabilities of tho
Filipinos and tho Cubans to govern
themselves Mr. Schurman said:
That Is a personal opinion of Admiral Dewy.

Chicago, Sept. It). A special to tho
Record from Washington, says: Tho
friends of Gen. Otis are becoming hope
ful that they will succeed in having
him retained in his present command.
Last week they were deeply discour
aged, and one, a high official of the war
department, openly admitted that he
believed "popular clamour" would re
sult in his friend's recall and tlie as
signment of Gen. Miles or Gen. Merritt
Tho prediction is now being con
fidently made by Gen. Otis' admirers
that ho will be permitted to demon
strate what ho can do with a largo
army before being censured for his
failure to make moro progress during
tho last campaign. It is impossible,
owing to tho conllioting interests at
work, to stitto positively how the eon
test for supremacy will terminate.
Gen. .Miles' friends aro as confident as
are those of Gen. Otis, but the drift of
feeling now seems to have turned in
favor of the latter.

ease tried iu 1800 in which discrimina
tions by tlio Pennsylvania road were

company. The witness contended that
the Standard company does reduco
prices for the purpose of driving out
competitors and said ho could bring a
staclc of proofs to show that this was
the custom to the present day. Ho
also charged tho Standard company
with exerting th utmost efforts to pre
vent legislation and of preventing the
making of appropriations to carry suoh
laws into elleet when made. Mr.
Emery was still on the stand when the

who entered. The crowd then retired.

of an act passed at its last session ap

fishing grounds on tho Labrador coast

The cod fishery has beeiv almost an
