AN . EXPEDITION TO DETER
MINE THE SUN'S HEAT.
Prof. Langlcy and Tart' on Their
Wsij to MMYIiitnty for
Attached to the Union Pacific train
westward bound this afternoon is one
of the Pullman hotel coaches, which
contains a scientific expedition party,
who are to investigate, and if possible
determine one of the most puzzling
and important questions of solar' sci
ence. That is to determine the solar
constant, or the amount of heat the
sun sends to the earth in a given time.
Fortius purpose a wealthy Pitts
burg, (Pa.), gentleman has sent out
this party, the government furnishing
their transportation. The point select
ed for the observations, which are to
form the data of calculation, is the
highest in the United btates, the top
of Mount Whitney, of the Sierras, in
the southern part of California.
The intrepid party who are to seek
this mountain top for their home dur
ing the next three months are Prof.
Langley, Capt. O. E. Michaelis, U. is.
A., Henry Day and J. E.Keeler. These
gentlemen have about four thousand
pounds of baggage and astronomical
instruments, of which latter they have
avery complete assortment, with two
telescopes of powerful capacity. Their
method of procedure and manner of
life will be in a great degree determin
ed b the circumstances which they
will find. As yet no man has ascended
Mt. Whitney to the altitude where the
party expect to climb, and they may
make new and perhaps valuable dis
coveries beside the main object of
their expedition. It is, at the best, a
novel and bold undertaking, which de
serves success. Omaha Telegram.

With a few notable exceptions, the
press of the country is discussing the
lesson of Guiteau's crime in a com
It seems to be taken for granted
that there is something about the
Presidential otlice which netds mend
ing, and tLat the detect has been de
monstated by the individual act of this
wretched creature. We do not sub
scribe to either of these notions.
Th office of President, as dttined in
the Constitution, and administered in
accordance with the principles of our
fathers, seems to be the most perfect
chief magistracy known in any aj,re or
country. But if this were not so, we
do not believe that its inadequacy
could be proved by the impulse of a
crazy assassin. Had our Executive
been a king, there would have been a
dozen such attempts as Booth's and
Guiteau's in our history, instead of the
three which we have had. Had the
President been as powerltss as the
Vice-President. Guiteau might just as
readily have conceived that it was his
mission to murder him. There is no
evidence that he was actuated by mal
ice, roused by the President's refusal
to give him an office. There is abso
lutely no trace of that motive in any
thing that has fallen from him either
before or since.
But we are told that Guiteau was
incited by the unmeasured denuncia
tions of the Stalwarts, and we presume
we are to be taught by this that the
liberty of criticism upon public offic
ials ought to be restricted. The mani
fest answer to this is, that if mere an
gry declamation had moved Guiteau,
without regard to its substance or jus
tice, he weuld have selected Arthur or
Conkling for his victim, because there
had been more of it, and worse, levell
ed against them than against the Pres
ident. Men like to be on the strong
side, and, as matter of fact, the great
majority of liepublican politicians,
and newspapers of all shades of opin
ion, were at that moment ranging on
the strong side of the Administration
against the bold and determined fac
tion who were resisting its power.
No doubt Guiteau ha3 avowed his
motive fully and fairty. Xo doubt he
tells the truth when he says that no
one else was, directly or indirect, re
sponsible for "hi3 act. He had no
personal ill-will to the President; but
he had arrived, by hi3 own retlection,
at the conclusion that the ''liepublican
party," which, in his preposterous
mind, was synonymous with the Gov
ernment, would be better off without
him, and he acted accordingly. Eugene
Aram argued to himself in much the
same way when he killed Clark; he
thought the wealth of the latter was
not well used, and should be trans
ferred to more competent hands. Gui
teau long since told his niece that there
were two men in the world whom he
felt he ought to kill ; one of them was
her father, and the other he declined
to name. He also raised an axe over
his sister's head, and would have kill
ed her but for the interference of her
son. What was going on in his brain
then? Doubtless the a-une mental
processes which brought him finally to
the perpetration of the bloody deed
which he now so coolly describes and
so proudly avows in his prison. But
he might just as easily have determin
ed that he was called upon to slay any
other man in the country; and if he
had be-n at Albany instead of Wash
ington, he would probably have under
taken to harmonize his beloved He
publican pa. ty by murdering a Stal
wart. Afton Notes.

Crops growing well, some pices of
millet are falling in patches; cause un
known. Great excitement and indig
nation over news of the President's
misfortune, and rejoicing, over pros
pects of his recovery. It would be no
trouble to get volunteers to march
eastward; we recommend a stout rope
and black cap for the assassin.
Haying has commenced, and will
pay well, as grass is good. Our Sun
day school is thriving finely. Some
building going on, with fencing and
other improvements. Our orchards

Our Match Factory.
The Fremont Herald takes occasion
to poke fun at our diminutive match
factory, but will probably cease to do
so when informed that it will soon be
capable of supplying this state and
several others with all the matches
they may need. In the first place the
Herald does not give the correct di
mensions as the building is 14x22 in
stead of 12x16. Mr. Paul Adametz,
the proprietor informs us that lie has
purchased machinery sufficient and of
the right kind, for turning out
1,440,000 matches per day. As there
are only 200 in an ordinary box this
would be at the rate of 7,200 boxes
a day. In a letter written by the man
ufacturer of the machinery, from
whom Mr. Adametz made his pur
chase, he has the guarantee as to its
capacity, so we cannot be accused of
Further from liositcr, Colorado.
July 7th, 1881. Deak Herald:
In our communication of last week,
we left off with Santa Fe. Coming
east from Santa Fe, near a station
called Glarielta, we had pointed out to
us the ruins of a church which we
were told was built 470 years ago; the
most of the walls are yet standing,
and will stand for centuries yet, if
nothing more than the natural ele
ments of New Mexico are brought to
bear on them.
Between Santa Fe and Los Vegas,
there stands a high peak of pyramid
shape, and flat on top; it can be as
cended only on one side. We were
told that many years ago, during a
war between the Mexicans and Indi
ans, that the Mexicans retreated, and
to escape their pursuers, went on top
of this peak ; the Indians followed to
the base of the mountain and camped,
and there remained until the Mexicans
all starved to death. The peak to
this day is called Starvation Peak.
Los Vegas (The Meadows) is rightly
named, as it is situated in the midst
of a group of natural meadows. It is
beautifully located, and is one of the
best towns ir Zs'evv Mexico. The A.
T. and S. F. 11. Rs. have a division sta
tion and shops atXewLos Vegas. The
celebrated Hot Springs are but four
miles away, and are rapidly becoming
notorious for their healing qualities.
Hundreds of visitors are there now.
testing the efficacy of these Springs.
From Los Vegas, we come directly
to Colorado, wo find this country
much livelier on general principals,
than either Arizona or Xew Mexico.
Here water is plenty for all mining
purposes, timber is plenty, grass is
good, and vegetation generally wears
a different face; in traveling 700
miles through Arizona we did not see
a single stick of timber, dead or grow
ing, either on mountain or in valley;
neither did we see a drop of running
water though we crossed several
places they called rivers; but they
were dry rivers; in Xew Mexico wa
ter and timber are tolerably plenty,
but the grass is not nearly so good as
in Colorado. Pueblo in this state
beats all the towns we have seen this
season; in the building boom it even
discounts Lincoln ; the buildings, too,
in the main are first quality.
On the afternoon of the 4th of July,
we left Ilositer at 4 p. m. in company
with Chirles M. Smith for a bear
hunt, about five miles from town in
an open park between two mountains;
between sundown and dark we found
five silver tip bear ; for about y0 min
utes we had lots of fun; we killed
two of the bear and wounded the
third; one of those that wp brought
in weighed four hundred pounds.
On the 5th the Consolidated Xe
braska Mining Company held their an
nual meeting; nine tenths of the stock
was represented; every thing harmon
ious and confidence away up; the
company has some of the best prop
erty in the camp and have arranged
to develop it in good style; we are
now almost ready to start for home;
one more bear hunt of about three days'
dura inn and some little prospecting,
and we are off for Xebraska. W.
Another Balloon Trip.
And now we are to have balloon ex
citement. Professor Samuel A. King
is building a great ariostat which he
hopes can be kept afloat for a week.
In ordinary balloons the gas escapes
through the interstices of the oiled
silk. But in this new balloon, which
is to be constructed of a preparation
of india rubber, it is believed the gas
can be retained for six or seven days.
It is the intention to start from some
Western city, and come East. Should
the voyage be a successful and pro
longed one, an attempt may be made
to cross the ocean. From Demoret's
Monthly for August.
Unifying our I'ailway System.
The work of consolidation goes on.
All our scattered railway lines aie be
coming united, and the time cannot
be far distant when live great com
binations will virtually control the
entire railway system ot the country.
These aggregations of great corpora
tions are building up colossal private
fortunes. Our railway magnates are
among the richest people on the top
of the globe. But there is this satis
faction that they cannot long abuse
their positions. It is difticult to deal
with a corporation, for it is neither a
body to be kicked nor a seul te be
anathamatized. But a few men like
Jay Gould aud Vanderbilt can be
dealt with, if they abuse their trusts.
In the meantime, the public are bene
fited by being able to travel any
where without change of cars, and to
send merchandise in any direction
with an assurance that it will reach
its destination. The American rail
way system will, before many years,
have a longer mileage, and will be as
finely equipped as the entire railway
system of Europe. From Demorest's
Monthly for August.
AROUND THE TENTS.
Incident and Accidents of the Circa?.
The life under the canvass is re
plete with btrange situations, changes
and inconveniences which no one but
those inside the ring can know of.
The canvass of Coup's show last night
covered 5,000 people who gazed list
ened and applauded; but of Litis num
ber how tew knew what it cost
some of trie graceful performers in
sparkling trunks and flesh colored
tights to go into the rings and do
their work. One ot tne men who had
tu m idt-d and turned in the main ring
when the gymnasts were out in a
;.-.! ,-ts i:e d aggered behind the en
ii.uliv i i.riaiii. exclaimed, "My God,

which he iiad suffered early in the sea
son, but which, for the sake of his
wife and babies at home, he had en
deavored to overcome, and at the
same time hold his place in the show.
In one of the wagons just outside
the big tent, lay, last evening, J. II.
Jeffries, the well-known trapeze per
fsrmer, in a critical condition from a
sunstroke, suffered during the I ro
gress of the parade toward the grounds
yesterday. He will doubtless be laid
up for some time; but he has a wife
aud child, and so one of the company
is doing double work and risking his
life in order that Jeffries' pay may go
The old horse Nettie was reluctant
to jump over the lnus and horses last
night, and he has an excuse for his re
luctance too. For ten seasons he has
served Coup faithfully and well, and
he doubtless thinks he has earned an
honorable discharge, with a pension
for life. They let the old fellow have
his own way pretty much, and wait
patiently foi the whim to jump to
come to him. He has been a most
successful card for Coup, who intends
to retire him in a short time.
Lowrey, the jockey, had his skill
put to the test last night to the full
extent. His trained horse, which was
injured in the recent railroad disaster,
became entirely useless yesterday
morning and the performance had to
Ije conducted with nr. untrained ani
mal. Lwrey is entitled to much
nr-nsA for the successful way in which
ho did his work. Omaha Telegram.
The Argument AgaiDst tha Blind Bridle.
We know not who invented this in
Btruinent of horse torture, but wo know
lie did not understand the anatomy and
physiology of the eye of a horse. Hu
man vision is binocular that is, we see
the same object with both eyes and so
adjust the axis of vision that the object
appears single though seen with two
eyes. But the eyes of the horse are
placed on the sides of the head, and the
axis of each is nearly at right angles
with the longitudinal line of the body,
so that it is impossible that the same
object can be distinctly seen by both
eyes. Now, by blinding the eye in tho
direction in which it was intended, in
its construction, that it should sec, it is
forced to use an oblique vision, as if wo
should cover the front of our optics and
be compelled to see only by tho corners
of our eyes. This unnatural and con
strained us-i of the eye must, to a great
er or less extent, impair vision, if not
entirely destroy it. The object for
which the blind bridle is used is not ac
complished by it. A horse is more
reaUily frightened when he cannot see
the object of his dread than if he can
have a fair view of it. But it is sur
prising to observe with what tenacity
men hold on to au absurd and cruel
practice when a moment's rcilectiou
should teach them better, Kineteen
out of every twenty horses i you see in
harness have blind bridles on, and if
you ask the owner to explain its bene
fits, or why he uses it, he will bo utter
ly unable "to give a rational answer.
Vo are not surprised that draught
horses are subject to diseased eyes wo
wonder that they are not all blind. In

Ti:c British rough is probably actu
ated less by a spirit of cruelty and in
justice than by a misguided sense of
humor. Suffering, human and animal,
has for him a comic side, and he takes
his pleasure in kicking a woman or tor
turing a cat. An incident at a fire, :ia
reported by a street loafer, aptly illus
trates the feeling which seems to ani
mate this class. . "On the roof," said
he, to a friend, "was an old man among
