A Hirer Intensely Malt.
It was long supposed that tho brack
Ishncsa of Salt Hlver, Arizona, was
caused by tho stream running over a
bed ot salt somewhere along its course.
Its waters are pure and fresh from the
Blace whoro it heads, up In tho White
lountalns, to within fifty miles of tho
place whero It empties into tho Gila.
Fifty miles from its junction with tho
Gila there cornea into it a stream of
water that is intensely salt. This stream
pours out of the side of a largo moun
tain, and Is from twenty to thirty feet
deep. It is very rapid, "and poura into
the Salt Klver a great volume of water.
Here could easily bo manufactured suf
ficient salt to supply the markets of the
world. All that would bo necessary
would bo' to dig ditches and lead tho
brine to basins In the nearest deserts.
Tho heat of tho sun would mako the
aalt. Were there a railroad near tho
stream Ita waters would doubtless soon
be turned and lot to immense evaporat
ing ponds. It is supposed that the in
terior of the mountain out of which
the stream flows ia largely composed ot
roek salt. Afcwtfa Enltrjmst.

Ire what a blessing they'are to their

know equally well that no mother
among them "all, would willingly miss
tho sound of their happy voices, tho
sparkle of their bright eyes, the clatter
of their little muddy boots, or the litter
of their busy hands. In one corner of
my sitting room tho cosiest in the

t,ho carpet, spreading carefully about,
covering a very large space with such
endless numbers of empty spools, nails,
screws, masses df tttrYglcd string, mar
