The Hottest Yet.
Yesterday was the hottest dav by flvo de
grees that we have experienced thus far this
season. At 1'J : ! iO the standard thermometers
registered 103J In the shade. For four
hours the temperature did not fall below
' .IS0. Business men nluiost suspended , and
nearly everyone sought some place which
would give him relief from the terrible heat.
Bayliss park was thronged and its grateful
bliado was much appreciated. There were
several partial prostrations from heat repelled -
polled , but none which are not expected to
recover. In tlio classic language of every
one "it was a scorcher. "

More Alarm Than Fire.
A telephone alarm called out the lire de
partment about 'J o'clock yesterday morning
to the southeastern part of the city , where
ono of the tenant houses of the Dr. Gordon
estate , otherwise known as the Walker prop
erty , was ablate. The prompt action of the
neighbois averted any soi lous consequences ,
and the ilamcs weio extinguished before the
department arrived. The tire originated in
a defective Hue and got inside u partition ,
where it was dillicult to reach. The loss is
but n foxv dollars and is covered by insur
ance. Tlio run was a Jong one , and owing to
the extreme heat the horses were nearly used
up by the time they reached there. It was
fortunate that the tiames were under control ,
as there was scarely hose enough to have
reached the nearest hydrant. This made the
second ilro within twenty-four hours , after a
rest of nearly a month , anil the boys are
holding themselves in readiness for tltc next
one , as they always come three in a bunch.

Desertion , Destitution and Death.
Yesterday morning a young child died on
Pierce street. The mother Is a worn in of
the town , and the father Is said to bo a mem
ber of the gambling fraternity of the city.
Tlio ilttlo ono was ill for several days and
the mother was loft alone to care for her
child. After the death some of the charita
ble neighbors cauio to her assistance.
It was a tlmo when the ap
peals of humanity caused forgetfulness
of the sin which made such a scene
possible. The mother said her baby hud
been ill for several days and she hail been
left without anything sa-o the brest neces
sities. The man who should have been her
protector had left her in the hour of her dir
est need alone. The mother bad forfeited all
claim to recognition nt the hands of respecta
ble people and she was now nlone. What a
moral is in th Is sad tale of woman's frailty
and its consequences. Far better that tlio
little wne died , but what can be said of the
man who was so far fallen as to forget his
own child and its mother in the hour of their
THE DEVIL'S SLIDE.
Allan Fonnaii in Piltsburg Bulletin :
Travelers over the line of the Union
Pacillc railroad are no doubt familiar
with tbo curious rock formations in
Hoho and Weber canons , just after the
road outers the territory of Utah. It
would seem that hero nature had made
her play ground , and out of pure snort
nature had fashioned the rocks into all
t-orts of fantastic and grotesque shapes.
But few , if any are familiar with the
legend which throws the glamours ot
the supernatural over the quaintly
shaped crags and gives them Jthoir sul-
phurously suggestive names.
I loft the train at the little Mormon
village of Peterson , just beyond the
canon , ami securing horses and tiguido ,
I prepared to spend u few days trying
the trout fishing for which the Weber
river enjoys a local reputation. Pedro ,
my guidoVas a half breed Mexican , of
the Saneho Pan/.a typo , full of Indian
lii/.inoss , Mexican supcrntitution and si
true Spanisn love for the marvelous.
Ho had been brought up in an old
monastery , not far from the City of
Mexico , and was full of talcb of the
hardy friars who braved the terrors of
the wildornc.is , in order to convert the
Indians , and who , if thuhtories bo true ,
used to lasso them when milder persua
Wo jogged along pleasantly enough
until we wore well within tli3 canon ,
and I selected a grassy spot on the river
bank to pitch our camu for ttio night.
Then Pedro began to show signs of un
"Scnor , I like not this place , " he said
finally , as ho fumbled at the cords
which bound the luggage on the pack
mule. "What is the matter with the
placeV" I queried as I took note of the
pools and eddies in the river , and made
a mental calculation as to the best p'ac
to commence my fishing the next day.
"It is strange , senor , the rocks arc
works of witchery , and the story it , not
pleasant to think of. "
" " I answered I
"Well , carelessly , as
saw a big trout , which looked to be
over a foot long as it Hashed in the sun
light , jump from a pool directly in front
of mo , "I guess nobody will hurt you ;
wo will build a big lire and it will keep
the animals away , and the Indians are
all peaceable. "
"It is not the Indians nor the bears I
fear , senor ; it i- * the devil. "
"P haw , he does not want you yet a
while , " I answered , laughingly , and
Pedro submissively bo an to arrange
the cam ) ) and prepare Cupper. I un
packed my trout rods with care , and
busied myself selecting Hies and rig
ging my tackle for the hport I antici
pated on the morrow. I oven went so
far as to whip the pool out of which I
had .seen the trout jump , but it was too
late in the day , or his troutsbip was
sullen , and I had my labor for my pains.
After wo had eaten our supper wo lay
on opposite sides of the cam ) ) fire , I
smoking my pipe and Pedro consuming
villainou-i cigarettes made of black plug
tobacco wrapped in the coarsest straw
paper , and thinking at least I was of
how well the natural appearance of tlio
canon gave color to Pedro's s-uperbti-
tiou-jnotions. The moon was struggling
through a mass of lloeoy cloud which
did not hide it entirely , but which
made the light tremble as it shot out
bright and clear through tlio open
spaces , then was obicured through a
cloud bank. Tlio Weber river , at our
feet , looked in one moment as bright as
quicksilver , in the next it was inky
black. The tremulous moonlight gave
fantastic outlines to the strangely
shaped crags mid they seemed to move
with a sort of rhymthic hwaying , to ad
vance in the moonlight and bow , then
recede into the shadow. The night
winds rustled though the stunted pines
and &ago brush and moaned must uncan
nily among the mysterious llsiiires and
crevices of the rouks. The river rip-
plml along peacefully enough past our
camp , but the dull roar of the cataract ,
where , a half mile below , it dashed
through the rock-riven Devil's Gate ,
made u dull monotone broken by the
sharp yulp of the coyote or the cry of
abinallbird frightened by the prairie
Pedro drew closer to mo , and point
ing to two parallel walls of roak about
twenty fi-ct apart , rising to a height of
about'thirty feet and extending from
the top to tlio bottom of tbo mountain ,
ho whispered in awe struck voice :
"Tho Devil's Slide , honor. "
Then pointing to a huge monolith ,
shtmod Hue an Indian club , on the opposite -
posito lull , lie added :
"Th it is the Devil's War Club , " and
ho ero-tod himself so vigorously and
muttered so many strange prayers in a
mixture of bad Spanish and wort-o
L-itiii , that I am certain that any rea
sonable fiend would have lied in U-rror
at his incomprehensible patois.
Ills evident terror was beginning to
make mo nervous from byiujmthy , and
I know that the best way to restore his
mental equilibrium was. to iiiteront him
in some subject not conmctjd with our
uncanny surroundings. I tried inain
to turn the conversation upon hunting
and fishing. At last in desperation ,
thinking that the bound of hib own
voice might reassure him and that in
the interest of his story ho would forgot
liis position , I allowed him to tell mo
the legend which , bhorn of some of
Pedro's inaccuracies of speech ran as
In the year'1777 , when the people of
the eastern part ol America wore tight-
ing for independencetnc Spaniards
had already Bottled on tto Pacific Coast
and founded several missions. The
fathers , with that devotion and fearless
ness which has characterized the priest
hood in all ages , bad penetrated far in
land and made many Viotfvcrts among
the ravages in the interior as early as
172-5. , ,
Among the most zonlous and success
ful \UH Father Piotro del Torra. u man
of great piety , and alfco an social and
genial a companion ns , one could wish
for. In the fall of 1777 , Father Pietro
had crossed the SiorraA tmtt wasiireach-
ing and baptizing amonr | tlio Indians of
Nevada and Utah. Ho liatt jiasc'd tbo
alkali plains of the Hmnboldt region
and the great Stilt Lakb , and Into ono
evening was walking In Weber C'anoii ,
when bo came to a wall of rook which
barred his pas nge. lie determined ,
however , to push on , and after labori
ously climbing the hill ho jimMied his
way'along the top. Soon ho observed a
gentleman dressed as a Spanish cavalier
of the day coming toward him. Father
Piotro was not iilittlo surprised to scon
whlto man so far from civili/.ation ; and
in truth , ho was not sorry , for being , as
we huvo said , of a social disposition , ho
felt the lack of company sorely.
Therefore , when they met Father
Piotro smiled pleasantly and remarked :
"A lonely walk you are having , my
"It i4" " , roverened father , but is it not
likewise lonely for you , who ttnvcl day
after day unattended'/ ' '
"Very lonely , " answered Father
Pietro , with a sigh. Then brightening
up he added :
"Lot us sup together ; a mist with a
pleasant companion is better than u feast
in solitude. ' '
"You tire right"respondedtho stran
ger , "t myself caii sneak knowingly of
the misery of solitude. I inn the pro-
iirloto.r of largo furnaces , and I came
here in search of fuel. 1 became separa
ted from my party , and for the lust t\\o
days Ihavo'beeii wandering around in
this vieinilv ; luckily. I am indllTorentl.y
well provided with food. " jis ho con
cluded ho sat down beside a large stone
and motioned Father Piotro to take a
seat oppoale. IIo d'tl so , and drawing
from his wallet a Ilttsl ; of water , a crust
of black bread and an onion ho prepared
to make his meal. liis companion
laughed , and tolling htm to "put away
that iiig's food , " produced from under
bis cloak a loaf of fresh bread , a Husk of
brandy and some lumps of sugar and
proposed to commence the supper with
a health to the priest. Nothing loth ,
Father Pioliv substituted the fresh
bread and spirits for his own hard crust
and water. As ho did so the stranger
remarked in a pitying tone :
"Poor food for a traveler , holy father ;
I marvel that your brethren do not fur
nish you with bolter ! ' '
Pathoi1 Pietro sighed. It was poor
lood , the onion and black bread. And
what though the brotherhood ot the
Mission Dolores were ioor , still thev
\\oro rich in th-3 mother country , and
men who worked as he di/1 eschewed
bettor faro. As the brandy rose to his
brain the demon of discontent ro c in
his heart. '
"Bread without meat is but dry eat
ing , " said the stranger , and extending
his hand beneath the stone , he drew up
a pair of plump partridges , sticking hot ,
as from a gridiron. Fatbur Pietro was
surprised at lirst , but thoibruiuly had
given him a feeling of reek'lossiicbs en
tirely unknown to his sober senses. So
he ate and joked \\ith his strange enter
tainer , and was in no wiy : surprised
when he drew a couple of boltlesof wine
and some delicious fruit from the same
strange larder. After much general
conversation , in the course of which the
stranger had expressed a'high admir.i-
tion for Father Piclro's zeal and learn
ing , he said carelessly :
"You arc well acquainted with this
.part of the country , I presume , rever
end father'/ ' '
" 1 have traveled through it several
years , " was the prompt answer.
"How would you like to leave the
priesthood and become my agent'/ The
work is easy , the pay is liberal , and you
will be provided with a warm homo
after you have done. For , by my faith ,
it pains me to my heart to see a man of
your talon rs nnd learning working fora
beggarly monastery , half clothed and
worse fed. Come with me and this will
bo changed. "
"I could not leave the brotherhood , "
answered Father Pietro.
Then followed a long argument be
tween them ; tlio stranger using every
argument in his power , promising uii-
told wealth , a life of ease and the grati
fication of every passion. The uood
father persistently refused. At last the
stranger ro-o , and rolling away the
rock , showed Father Pietro mi iminenco
mass of gold and bilver underneath ,
saying ; "Thisshall be yours if jouwiil
give ui > your work and a-sist me. Do
you still refuse'/ "
"I do , " answered Father Pietrostur.l-
"Then die , " cried the stranger , in a
rage , and grasping his stall as if for a
blow. lie suddenly grew in si/.o until
ho was over sixty foot high ; he swung
the terrible club' over the priest's head
and roared :
"Will you work for me'/ "
"Never ! ' '
Tlio club was poised for a blow. As
it came down Father Piotro grasped his
crucifix and prayed. The club fell
powerless , and , tlio devil loaing all
power to harm one holding the crucifix ,
slid down the side of the mountain , thu

thrust his club into the hill opposite

"What became of Father Pietvo'/
"IIo at last found his way back to tbo
Mission Dolores , where ho spent the re
mainder of his life in fast ing and jirny-

"Well , Pedro , do you believe that

"Si , soiior ; it was told mo by a holy
priest , who said in the sumo manner
was the devil accustomed to tempt us to

It is said that trees planted under the
electric light increase in ni/.o much
more rapidly than those tat out under
ordinary circumstpiu'es. It is finely
illustrated in Falrtield , just ut present ,
according to tbo Journal , whore at a
street corner stands a little tree that
was set out there last spring. It grow
fairly well last season without tbo olcc-
