" ' twwa wrw-n-uMiwwrftre J II I LIFE ON DE3TNUCTION ISLAND. Uiimtml Thine Horn by . North I'noifla I.1rflllHOU-KrIPr. From tho Ssattlo Post-Intolllgsnoer; Tho keeper of Iho govommont light house, which WBS (MUbllshotl a fow years ngfejon Destruction island, doubt Joss lend, "a lonely life, but ho has Bomo oxpcrloncos which a lovor pf tho roraan tto nnd tho nd venturous- might woll covot. Tho Island ltsolf is jiht .wlth- 1 out n cortnin wolrtl fascination. 'Thlrty fivo inllaa voutli of Cnpo Flattery it nrlsos abruptly ffm tho faco of tho ocean. It has n picturesque, though wild and ruggod bonuty, nnd na It stands faolng tho northorn blasts that hfivo Rent moro than ono etout ship to 1 tho bottom, it calls up the namo of Islft do Dolores,- which tho early Spanish nnvlgator, Qoadra, gavo it to conimom orato hta tnWortunoa, and tho lattor namo of Destruction Island, given to it In 17S7 by Captain Berkley on account of tho ead fato of eoveral of his crow who were murdered on its savage coast. On wild flttd stormy nights, when Iho wind Is Svhlrllng tho sea Into fpjain Against tho beetling edges of tho Island, tho scene passes tho merely beautiful and becomes majestic nnd sublime.' On such nights the. keeper has visi tors that do not como to tho door of ,tho ordinary landlubber. Flocks of wild fowl,. attracted by tho bright ljght, fly blindly toward It, and, with- tho '.force of tho wind added t that of their own stout wings, thoy . are driven Against tho lens with n momentum that sometimes shatters tHtj thick glass, Lut oftcner resultB In instnnt doath to ' tho birds. Somotlmcs thcro is a posl tivo volley of blrdn against the faco of tho light, and na many as a dozen huvo been known to striko it Simultaneously. After a stormy night ty is not uncom mon for tho keeper to pick up at tho base of tho tower as many ns twenty flvo dead birds. Many of theso aro of tho choicest kinds, and tho keeper's j table soldom lacks a supply such as an eplcuro might cravo. f During tho day tho keeper is fro- ' quejitly greeted by tho thrilling sight .of a whale' hunt by Indians in tho neigh boring Abaters, a chnso as hazardous ,nnd exciting ns nny on mountain or plain. Each canoo goes out with a crow of six oarsmen, ono spoarsman in tho tern. To tho end of tho spear an nlr- tlght sealskin, Inflated llko a bladder, .is attached by a lino fifty feet long. A t 'dozen 'of these boats go out together whon a whnlo is sighted. Stealthily a slnglo boat moves out from tho llttlo flcot and approaches tho big game, tho -''oarsmen Btolcal and calm, tho spears- ,mnn erect, rigid and statuesque It is fl momont of grave peril. - A splashing oar, a nuddon move, a wnvoring hand or hot heat at tho helm, ttnd bont and crow would go down bo .aeath a slnglo stroko Jrom tho great monster now so near. At precisely tho Vlght Instant tho spcarsman hurls his spear with unerring aim, and tho bat tle begins. And then ono standing on J tho Island cliff sees tho llttlo boat dart nway and tho whnlo fiercely churning Iho water. Tho other boats como up rapidly. Woakened by loss of blocd, retarded by ,ihe air-tight skins that Moat on tho Water, and worn out by turning hither 'fond thjtjaer jn whimsical pursuit of his. .many foes, tho whale slowly gives over the unequal contest and is towed at JaBt, Jlke a great hulk of a merchant man, to Noah bay, whoro tho Indiana gather for a groat feast. i f How the Eurth oic Time. Tho explanation of Lord Kelvin's estimate that tho "sot-back" of tho ,earth In Its dally rotation round Its axis 'amounts to twenty-two seconds per con .tury, U reported to be that such retar ''datlon' is owing to tho friction caused 'by tho tide, tho lntter acting as a "'brake, and such action is calculated, ac cording to tho same authority, to bo .equal in weight to some -100,000 tons Applied on the equator. Other causes, "be cays, have also to bo takon into ac count, as, for examplo, tho Increase In iho size of tho earth, duo to the fallllng ion It of meteorlo dust, which, if dopos ited at tho rato of one foot in 4.000 years, would produce tho obsorvod ro tardatlon by itself. Further, such a phenomenon as tho annual growth nnd '-netting of snow and ico at tho poles, 'Jby abstracting water from tho other parts of tho ocean, Introduces Irregular ities' Into tho problem, tho abstraction vtcceleratlng tho earth's motion and the l pelting, by restoring tho water, rctard ' Jug it.

Now, we address this upon letter to you to say that past oxpor ience, if remembered' tenches us that it is n common practice with most of them to solid out handsome printed matter, moke a. game of smooth talk and mauy fair promises, in order'to hnvoyou boliovo thoir Binchino is tlm only bno to buy. If they find you have boujrht on yoni own judgment and bought what you know to bo tho best, THE McCORMICK MACHINERY, they got after you, offering lower prices, stories of imaginary brilliant successes, etc., calculated to make you feel that you hayo bought too early. The facts in tlio caso arc that you can buy n McCormick Bindor or Mower just as cheap in January hb you can in Juno or any other month. McCormick machines nro sold at ono price at all times, they being nil mado alike and of tho same material, aro necessarily worth tho same money, henco tho company must ask all people tho same price. The price of a McCormick machine hn no moro to do with that of nny other binder or mower than it has with tho price of bicy cles. Please bear this point in mind. McCormick makes his own machines; tho other companies mako theirs. Thoy do not compare notes as to the cost of tho differ ent machines, and only do so in rolntion to tho SELLING PRICE and gungo their price by thoir ability to get orders that wo would Burely got if Uioy would put tho siime price ou their goods as wo do on ours. If their machine cost them as much monev as the McCormick does to build, they would surely ask tho same price, as thero is no compqny on earth that can build machines any clieapor or better than The McCormick Harvesting Machine Co. build theirs. If you have not bought a McCormick, you should placo your order at onco with your nearest ncent for ono of the McCormick mach ines tho best harvester and binder that McCormick over built, and a machino of which wo are all justly proud. Reports from the southern harvest fields are most flattering and encouraging, showing that tho competition only did business where wo woro SHORT OF MACHINES and couldn't -till orders. This con vinces ub and should convince you, that tho McCormick machine sells on its morits and not on price, which is guaged by productions of oth er manufacturers, and as history usually repeats itself as tho harvest moves north, it might bo well for you to place your order at once, as wo will very likely have to faco a shortage in Nebraska and elsewhere. It might strike you when you need your machine tho worst, "First como must be first served," If you have already placed your order, you should fool happy over it and pay no attention to any talk given you by a competitor with tho idea of making you dissatisfied with your purchase.

SURRATT. tilt Eicape from t'Mptar Whon Ue Was a I'opal Zouave. Vhothcr Surratt waa In tho city on that day will probably novcr bo posi tively known. During his trial ho at tempted to prove that ha was In El mlra, N. Y., doing epeclal service for tho Confederacy, and tho proof which he furnished was sufilclent to convlnco eight of tho twelve Jurors that he waB not present and took no part In tho plot. Surratt claims to havo first learned of the murder on tho morning following tho assassination from tlio newspapers while In Elnilra, and on tho next morning, while en route to Now York city, of his tuspected com plicity In the plot. Ho lied lmmedato ly to Canada, whero ho remained con cealed by Catholic priests for neafly Ave months. Leaving Canada, he went to England, thence to Paris, and thence to Rome, whero, under the name of Watson, he enlisted in the Zouaves of tho Pope. While in the Papal zouaves ho wa3 recognized by a Canadian ncqualnt "ance, who betrayeu him. On tho day following his arrest, while under tho guard of six men, ho leaped blindly from a rocky precipice over 100 feet In depth, and, allghtl.ig by chanco on a projecting rock thirty feet below, clam bered quickly down the abyss, escaped, reached Naplg3 In the course of a week, and sailed to Alexandria on the same vessel which carried the instructions to the consul there that led to his cap ture. He was finally brought back to the United States and tried at Wash ington by a civil court. Tho trial ex tended over a period of two months and moro than 200 citizens appeared on the stand. The Jury disagreed, as above stated, and the government did not prosecute the case further. "Four Lin coln Conspiracies," by Victor Louis Mason, In the Century. A FIGHT WITH ALLIGATOR3.
