The Ugh ! Towering Iji { IU TOWOM.
It has , boon long since anything in
this city has so attracted the attention
of the public undo.xcited remarks as the
erection of the electiio light towers.
In the first place , electricity is a thing
mysterious , little understood and re
garded with almost superstitious awe by
the general masl-en , while the o who un
derstand it bent stand in wholesome fear
of it. But , if there is one liberty prized
more highly than any other by the
American clti/en , it is that of free
speech. There-fore , each and everyone
bus felt at perfect liberty to comment
on the towers , and competent to explain
all about what he did not underrftund to
anyone who would listen. These tow
ers , of which there are three completed ,
ate certainly odd looking structures. A
light-looking triangular iron frame
bearing at its top 160 feet from the
ground , a grating or platform and just
above tiiat four cross arms , from which
the lights are to suspend ; the whole
supported by a single iron post , about
the size of a street lump post.
Everybody knows that the electric
lamps need 'daily attention. How to got
to the top of the tower is the llrst ques
tion that suggests its-elf to one on first
seeing it. Hxamlnalion shows Iho iron
frame to bo made of three iron
gas pipes , braced and cross-
raced by iron rods. One of the
pipes is studded with spikes so as to
form a ladder , and it is not uncommon
to hear a man say , "Well. 1 wouldn't
climb that thing every day all winter for
all the money in Council Blulls. " A
man wonk . have to hang on when the
thermoiiioter is twenty below , the wind
blowing and the air full of snow. He'd
freeze to death before he could get to
the top. " Another says : "I'd want the
tower lower or the Milury higher before
I'd clean tho-o lamps every day. " One
bulloonuticafter taking in the situation
from a safe distance , made a proposal to
Mr. Olllcer to furnish n balloon in which
the attendant could malic his daily as
cent.
It docs look a little shaky , and it
would be tin impossibility to climb the
ladder every day , but these is no need
of it , for each tower is lilted with a wire
cable elevator so balanced by a weight
that the elevator and the attendant can
be carried to the ton without oven the
labor of hoisting himself. Ills work
done , he reverses the motion , and with
n little assistance from him himself is
lowered to the ground. By means of
brakes ho is able to completely 'outrol
the elevator , and every precaution has
boon taken to make tlio work as safe as
possible. The ladder is only for use in
case of emergency , so that by no
accident could the attendant be
left 150 feet up in the air with nothing
but wind to subsist upon.
The iron standard of the tower is
firmly planted in a lied of mason work.
A derrick is erected , the top section
fastened together , and by the derrick
hoisted about twelve feet into the air , a
section of gas pipe about eight feet long
is then screwed into each of the three
angles and securely braced and the der
rick hoisted again , aitd the operation is
repeated. Guy ropes prevent the work
from toppling over while it is being
hoisted. In this manner the labor is
performed on the ground. When the
structure has reached a proper height it
is fastened to a standard , the guy ropes
are replaced by eight twisted iron
cables , which are fastened at different
heights and secured to posts in the
ground , which prevents all swaying.
The contract requires six of these tow
ers , besides the lights on the court
house , and the men are at work on the
fourth now , so it will not bo long before
the city will be lighted by electricity.
Of course there are many doubters who
foretell that the system will not work
well , as the towers are too high or too
low. But experience has shown that a
height of 150 feet affords the best re
sults. If placed too low the light is in
tercepted by buildings , and if placed
too high it is too much diffused. The
near future will solve all questions that
now arise , and for the sake of the city
it is to bo hoped they bo satisfactorily
answered.
Sermon At Ht. Paul's.
Last evening the Rev. Dr. Maekay
spoke to the young men. His address
was thoroughly practical and was lis
tened to by a lurgo audience mostly
young men. The subject chosen was
"Stevenson's Strange Talc , or the Con
fession of Dr. Jcckyll , " a brief * sketch
of which was given. Dr. Jeckyll was a
man possessed of more than average
goodness of heart and life , yet possessed
of a strong liking for pleasure. During
his chemical investigation ho acci
dentally discovered a compound , by the
use of which , taken into the system , ho
became so metamorphosed as to keenly
enjoy these pleasures and whicl
changed his physical appearance so
that no one would know him. Ho also
discovered another drug which would
reduce him to his normal self again
Thus he could act a double lifo
without fear of discovery. Ho
named his becond and unnatural self
Edward Hyde. Thus for years ho lee' '
this dual life. The more Mr. Hyde was
indulged the stronger ho became , and
the weaker to resist temptation , be
came the good doctor. Ho tried many
times to overcome his temptation , but
each trial resulted in the downfall of
the good and the dominance of the evil.
The evil finally became bo powerful that
Mr. Hyde committed murder , for which
act the good doctor became so con
science stricken that lifo was torture.
This strange story cuds in the buicido of
the good Dr. Jekyll.
Applying the tale Dr. Mackoy con
tinued : "It is not a mere tale written
to amuse an idle hour. If such was the
author's intention ho has written wiser
than ho knew , for it contains the grand
est teaching and the most awfully
solemn truths in the shape of a story
that it has ever been mv lot to read. Who
can read the sad confession of doctor
Jokyllund not feel that- the author is
drawing a faithful picture of the con
flict that is over going on in the nature
of man. The conflict between the peed
and the evil the God side and the devil
eido for , rotlno it as wo may , there is a
devil bide in man. "Many a man vol
untarily , " as the author says , "strips
himself of the hallowing instincts by
which oven the wor t of us continues to
walk with s-omo steadiness among temp
tations , and does evil with a keen sense
of pleasure. " So close is the dividing
line in many a man between good and
evil that to bo tempted , however
slightly , is to fall. Could wo obtain the
confession of any noted criminal wo
would find it to proceed on precisely the
same principle , i. o. first tlio conflict ;
then the tampering the longing then i
the resolve , and then the fall. The )
'
higher pur' inspirations after purity
nnd righteousness 01 i lifo the more fear-
ful will theconflictbecome. St. Paul was
not aware that ho was worse than other
men until the righteousness o ! God in
in Christ Jesus , shining in upon his
nature , revealed to him what his true
condition was. "
"Hear Paul dlscribo his condition :
"I am cural. Sold under sin. For
what I would do , that I do not , but what
I hate , that I do. " In this wo hoar the
repugnance of Dr. .Tokyll for the oyil of
Mr. Hyde ; thahatryd of the good nature
for' the evil , ! the bud. "Henry
Jekyll , " says the author , "stood , nt
times , aphast before the nets of Edward
Hyde. " So before the man becomes
thoroughly hardened does ho etand
appalled at the iniquity of his own
nature. St. Paul payn : "Now then. It
Is no more 1 that do it , but sin thnt
dwollcth in me. " So reasoned Dr.
.lekyll : "It was Hyde and Hyde alone
that was guilty , " so every man rea
sons : A little Indulgence will not hurt
mo. It is only allowing a little liberty
to one side of my nature , the other will
not suffer. St. Paul admits all that.
He goes even further. "For I know that
in mo" that Is my flesh "dwellcth no
good thing , for to will is present
with me , but how to perform that which
is good 1 lind not. "Now if \ do that I
would not it is no more I that do it , but
sin that dwelloth in mo. " ThiHSt.Paul
declares to bo a law of our being. I
Hud another law , viz : "When I would
do good evil is present with mo. " "For
1 delight in the law of God after the in
ner man. " Yes , Paul , so does every
man in the beginning ; but ! see another
law in my members waring against the
law of my mind and bringing mo into
captivity to the law of sin which is in
my members.
"Man. " says Dr. Jekyll , "is not truly
one , but truly two. I wiw that of the
two natures that contended in the field
of my consciousness even if I could
rightly be said to bo either
it was only because I was
radically both. " What a commentary
on St. Paul's agonized expression :
"Who shall deliver mo from the body of
this death ? " It was the curse of hu
manity that these two incongruous
fagots' were thus bound together ; that
in tlio agonized womb of consciousness
these polar twins should be continually
struggling.
This strange book is not an unnatural
one , but a faithful portrayal of the
struggles of a highly gifted human
nature. Such a character us this is re
vealed in the history of Saul , the first
king of the .lews. A man highly
favored , with noble , generous impulses ,
and dark , jealous , revengeful passions ;
struggling against his evil spirit and
and yet loving to give way to it.
Eager to obey the commands of God ,
yet over disobeying them , and at last ,
after his ill balanced lifo ,
escaping from the death ho
dreaded by self destruction. If you
want to see the truth uf the author's
story looo into your own hearts , and you
will see there the story written in let
ters too easily read. In greater or less
degree the struggle goes on in every
child of man. In him who resists the
conflict is ennobling. In him who
basely yields , the tendency isjeverjdown-
ward , until ho is swallowed up by the
whirlpool of passion that ho himself has
evoked.
Says Sidney Smith : "If wo wish to
know who is the most degraded and
most wretched of human beings ; if wo
want to see how deon the miseries of
man can reach ; if this bo an object of
curiosity , look for tlio man who
has practiced a vice so long that
ho curses and clings to it
that he pursues because ho feels a great
law of Ins nature driving him on tow
ards it , but reaching it , knows that it
will gnaw his vitals and make 'him roll
himself in the dust with anguish. "
"Oh , young man just starting out in
lifo , bo warned in time ! You carry
within you your worst foe. Realize the
nature 'of the conflict you must wage
against the J/nver parts of your nature.
In it you currhavo little help from man.
In the silence of your own heart the
battle must be fought and lost or won.
Lost it need not bo if you are only faith
ful. "
The speaker closed with a powerful
and eloquent appeal and showed that the
warfare need net bo without help. Ho
quoted numerous scripture passages
which promise divine assistance. "God
will not use his power so as to crush the
power of choice. " Every man must
chose for himself and this responsibility
rests upon himself alone. "No man on
earth has over fought this battle alone
and won. God will help you and a glor
ious victory will bo yours. "
A PRE-HISTORIC CITY.
Once of 25.OOO Inhabitants Now But
a Relic of Ethnological Intercut.
A letter from Arizona , printed in the
Washington Post , gives information of
an exceedingly interesting and valua
ble ethnological find made by Mr.
Frank H. Cushman , of Xuni fame , the
past summer in Arizona. It seems ho
lias discovered u pro-historic city in the
Salt river valley" , about eighty miles
northwest of Tucson. Inquiry made to
day at the ofllco of the Powell geologi
cal survey elicited full confirmation of
the printed report , together with inter
esting additional information about the
great find. Prof. Cushman is at present
in southern California , lying extremely
ill , but the foreo ho put at work during
the summer exhuming the buried city
arc still encamped on the spot continu
ing their explorations.
The camp is located on the edge of
the unearthed city and about HOO yards
from what was its citadel , or fortified
temple. This is believed to have beet
a building of considerable size and
strength , probably several stories high
and had its foundation laid deep in the
earth. The material used in its con
struction was sun-dried clay , the same
as that used by the Mexicans of the
lower and middle classes and before Mr.
Cushman began his explorations there
was nothing to mark its whereabouts
except a sort of oblong hillock or mound
Little of the walls above the foundatioi
were found intact , but the ground plan
could bo traced in every detail , as wel"
as the lines of the outer wall. The
rooms were of different sizes , and
seemed to have been constructed
with much architectural skill. A
number of the smaller apartment !
hud undoubtedly boon const ructct
for burial vaults , for when t
were opened un skeletons were found in
them , the heads being invariably to the
east. In ono of these vaults waf the
skeleton of a child. Mr. Cushman was
of the opinion that the building had
been a sort of combined citadel and
sacred temple , and that the i-pmuins of
those found there wore those of priests
and their families. The city extended
out in all directions from the palace or
temple , and the foundations of numer
ous dwellings had been exposed , many
of them consisting of but ono room ; but
now and there is ono of larger and more
ample proportions , and in most of these
larger ones there had been found burial
vaults and skeletons. Two thousand
of these have been exhumed al
ready according to the letter in the
Post , but it is thought by the officials
of the geological survey that this is a
misprint for two hundred. A great deal
of pottery has been taken out , of course.
No iron , copper , or metal instrument of
nny kind was found , but great quanti-
tics of stone axes , stone nestles and
mortars , bono needles and knives and
other such materials as belong to the
stone ago. The skill with which these
articles wo.ro made was far superior ,
however , than that shown by the In-
diuns found in America by the whites.
These pro-historio dwellers of southern
Arizona were a people of very superior
intelligence.
Mr. Cushman has found n good deal
of wheat and barley and other gain , all
of itof course , in a charred , blackened
conditiod , and helms also traced several
canals and found the ruins of a largo
re&crvoir , so'thut ho has no doubt that
extensive irrigation had been carried
on , and thnt all the valley had been un
der cultivation. Ho thinks there must
have been a population of nt least 25-
000 in the ruined city , and that mo t of
the inhabitants lived by cultivating the
soil of the surrounding country.
Cushmun was questioned us to his the
ory about the complete disappearance
of the people who occupied this city ,
* 'l ' think , " said he , "they suffered
from some great calamity llko the In-
inhabltants of HcrculantL-um and Pom-
Foll. It was probably an earthquake ,
have found skeletons under the walls
of houses lying as If the walls had sud
denly fallen upon the person fvnd
crushed him to death. Yes , I think
there cumo a terrible earthquake which
killed many and frightened the remain
der away. They were no doubt a reli
gious people and strongly suporsitlous ,
so that they saw In the calamity that
befell them a warning to seek some
other abode. They probably moved
south , and it may huvo been their de
scendants that the Spaniards found in
Mexico. They were certainly equal in
intelligence and advancement to the
Aztecs. "
The Urotlirrs nntl the Beauty.
Cornhill Magazine : Two brothers
met a lady dressed in blue , whom they
had never seen before , ut a military
dance. Each of them asked at once to
bo introduced to her at first sight ; each
asked the same officer for an introduc
tion ( though they had several friends in
common present ) ; each described her in
the same way , not as "tho lady in blue , "
( the most obvious point of appearance
about her ) , but us "tho lady with the
beautiful ears ; " each fell desperately in
love with her off-hand , and each asked
her for a particular flower out of a little
bouquet containing four or five more
conspicuous blossoms. Finally , each
came up at the end of the evening to
conlido in the same married lady of
their acquaintance their desire to see
more of the beautiful stranger. Now ,
small as arc all these little coincidences ,
they nevertheless show to my mind a
more profound identity of mental fibre
than far larger and more important mat
ters of lifo could do. For on great
emergencies or in the great affairs of
one's conduct it is only natural
that somehow similar characters ,
being governed by the same
general emotions , should act on the
whole very much alike , while often , on
the other hand , a particular difference
will make the action of similar charac
ters at a special crisis extremely diverg
ent. Thus , the two Newmans , essen
tially the same in fibre , both reexamining
ining their creed at a certain epoch of
life , follow out their own logical conclu
sions with rigorous precision , one to
free thought , the other to the cardi-
nulato , so that outsiders would be apt to
at first "What difference
say sight : a striking
ference between two brother.sl" But
exact identity of tastes and preferences
shown in these minute , touches of feel
ing the choice of an introducer , the
phrase about the ears , the selection of
a particular flower ( it wasn't a violet ,
which might occurto anybody , but a
spray of plumbago , in itself quite with
out sentimental interest ) , and the un
burdening of mind to a particular con
fidante all these things abundantly
testify to an underlying similarity of
mental structure , down to tlfc ) merest
side-tracks ; and by-ways of the brain ,
fhieh could hardly happen under any
ither conceivable circumstances than
hose of actual family identity.
