"General r.ceso , how is it about Amor's in-
chiding himself on the board of secretaries
of the stale board of transportation ! I see
that ho claims ho will bo reappointed with
out material opposition. "
"Well , 1 can siy : for oijo that he will never
got there by my vote. And , further , I can
say that another member of the Incoming
board feels as I do about the matter. So , I
think , you can safely say that Agur will have
to shift to something else for a livelihood. "
"How about Warinp ! Will ho be continued
ns clerk i"
"Ho is a capable man , but so negligent and
shiftless that I shall oppose retaining him.
llesldcs , he sils hi the lap of the railroads ,
mul I have come to distrust him. I have It ,
nlsu , that another member of the new board
ivlll oppose his retention , and if so his goose
Is cooked. I want it iniulc possible for the
now board to do something for
fie general public , and we can't
do it with railroads greashur the whocls. I
think that the best interests of state demand
that Waring should go. "
' Whom do you favor for Mungor'.s place11 ;
"I have no personal choice. Uut 1 shall
favor a good Omaha man , if one can bo
found there who will accept tlio position. 1
mean , of course , a representative man a
good lawyer , one whom the public regards
as honest and capable. "
, . "WilUudge Mason bo retained i"
"fam not curtain. I have not had an op
portunity lo talk to the board about the mat
ter. Mnson has done about all the work
that over has been done by the board and he
is competent. "
"Suppose now that Jour of the now
board say that the old machinery shall bo
retained , what will .you do 1"
"I shall go before the legislature and do
my lovcl best to liavo the state board of
transportation abolished. If that board can
not bo brought into line for the public
good , it will become n worse than use
less picco of machinery in the
state government. It will not only bo an
cxpenso but n disgrace to the sate , and I
don't propose to sit down and stand it with
out nn effort to do my constituency * onieicnt
service1. The state needs and demands a re-
* * ucciun on freight rates , ami I ahull not give
up the buttle until the last possible chancu
goes a glimmering. I have strong hones
that the now board will do something for
the farmers of the state , soon after organiza
tion , ana I liavo good reasons for thinking
so. It will not surprise mo to Hud that a
majority of the now board favor a reduction
of rates. Of course I will be notified if this
mirmlsu should chance to bo truo. The
board would t'.ion bo iirncticnlly united , and
something tangible and highly important to
the producers of the state would bo in sight ,
and at the close of my present term I could
retire to private lifo feeling that I had done
something for my constituency.

General Brlsbin in Trees and Tree-
Planting : Probably the oldest timber
in the world , which lias been subjected
to the use of man , is that found in the
ancient temple of Kgypt in connection
with stone-work , which is known to bent
nt least four thousand years old. This ,
the only wood used in the construction
of the temple , is in the form of ties ,
holding the end of one stone to another.
When two blocks wore laid in place an
excavation about an inch deep was
inndo in each block , ' in which a tie
shaped like an hour-glass was driven.
Jt is , therefore , very diflloult to force
any stone from its position. The tlos

days of their insertion. Although fuel
is extremely scarce in the country .these
bits of wood are not largo enough tc
make it an object for the Arabs tc
heave on" layer after layer of heavy
stone to obtain shorn. Had they been ol

would they have been for various pur
The oldest timber in A merion un
doubtedly existed in Nevada and Cali
fornia. That in California has haply
been preserved , but the ancient trees ol
Nevada nave long since disappeared.
There arc , hownvcr , still to bo seen
many potriHcaliom of these undent
giants , which loll us what these forests
once were , long betore the landing ol
Columbus on our shores.
In the bottom of the main shaft of the
Virginia City Coal company , Kldorndo
canyon , ' . .yon county , . Nevada , was
encountered the trunk of a tree four
feet in diameter , a lone relie of an
ancient and extinct forest. Whore cut
through by the shaft this old tree was
found to bo perfectly carbonized turned
into coal ; outside the old log was com
pletely crusted over with iron pyrites ,
many of which were so bright that the
crystals shown like diamonds. Those
pyrites also extended into the body of
the log , Illling what were apparently
once cracks or wind-shakes , and even
forming clusters about what was once
the heart of the tree. This relie of an
old time lay far below the two veins of
coal. The finding of this old trunk Ls
evidence that the country years ago was
covered by a forest of large trees ; though
the native timber growth , when the
country was lirst visited by the whiles ,
and as far back as the traditions of the
Indians extend , was but a scrubby

the shaft la which this carbonized tree
was found , are to bo been on the sur
face the petrified remains of many
large trees , lu the early days of Was-
hoe , before the prospector had broken
them up for specimens , pieces of treo-

Judge Goodwin , editor of the Ssxl

gives his description thorcon below :

This mass was once a river of inoultci
lire , the making of which must havi
succeeded a convulsion of nature mori
terrible than any ever witnessed bj
mortals , and lou r years must havt
passed before the awful liery mass wa :
cooled. To the east of the source of the
lava How , the SnaUo river bursts out ol
the hillH , becoming almost at once f
sovortgn river , aad llowinir at lirst
bouthweetorly and then bondinjr west
erly , cuts through the luvu Holds nearly
in the canter ut the territory , reekonoU
from east to west , and about forty miles
north of its southern bin-dor , and thence
Mowing' with great curves , merges
llnally with the I'olumbla. Tho. two
rivers combined make 0110 of llio ehiof
water ways of the coalition ! , and hero
and there take on pictures of great
beauty. On the Snake there are sov-
orul falls. Tito American falls a few
miles west of i'ocatello are very beauti
ful. Some sixty miles below are the
Twin lalls , whore the river , divided
into two nearly equal parts , falls ISO
feot. They are very grand. Tlireo
mik's further on , and nearly duo south
and twoiity-Htx miles away from the
town oSShoshoiio on the Oregon Short
Line railroad , are the Shoshone falls
and a few miles further on the .Salmon
fulls. The following article was written
in the hope of giying a 'faint idea of the
great Shosliono falls.
Xevor any where else was there such
a MVIIO ; never anywhere else was so
beautiful a picture hung in so rude a
frame ; never any where else ou a back
ground so forbidding and weirdworo so
many glories clustered.
Around and beyond , there is nothing
but the desort. sure , silenl , lifeless ; as
though Desolation had builded there
everlasting thrones to borrow and le-
Away back in remote ages , over the
withered breast ijf the desert , a river of
lire 100 miles wide ; and 101) ) miles long ,
was turned. As the lire.y mass cooled ,
its red waves became irauslixed and
turned blackgiving to the double desert
an indescribably blasted and forbidding
But while this river of lire was in How ,
a river of water was lighting its way
across it , or has since made the war anil
forged out for itself a channel through
the mass. This channel looks like the
grave of a volcano that had been robbed
of its dead.
But right between its crumbling and
repellent walls transfiguration appears.
And such a picture ! A river as lordly
as the Hudson or the Ohio , springing
from the distant snow-crested Tetons ,
with waters transparent as glass , but
green as emerald , with majestic How
and over increasing volume , sweeps on
until it reaches this point where the
Suddenly , in different places in the
river-bed , jagged rocky reefs are up
heaved , dividing the current into four
rivers , and those , in a mighty plunge of
eighty feet downward , dash on their
way. Of course the waters arc churned
into foa-.n and roll over the precipice ,
white as are the garments of the morn
ing when no cloud obscures the sun.
The lovoliests of those falls is called
"The Bridal Veil , " because it is made
of the lace which is woven with a warp
of falling waters and a woof of sun
light. Above this and near the right
bank is a long trail of foam , and this is
called "Tho Bridal Trail. " The other
channels are not BO fair as thooito called
"Tho Bridal Veil , " but they are more
fierce and wild , ami carry in their
furious 9\v op more power.
One of the roofs which divides the
river in mid-channel runs up to a peak ,
and on this a family of eagles have' '
through the years , may be through cen
turies , made their home and reared
their young , on the very verge of the
abyss and amid the full ecjioos of the
re&ounding roar of the falls. Surely
the eagle is a lilting symbol of perfect-
fearlessness and of that exultation
which c omes with battle clamors.
But these lirnt falls are but a begin
ning. The greater splendor succeeds.
With swifter How , the startled waters
dash on , and within a few feet take
their second plunge in a solid crescent ,
Over a sheer precipice , two hundred and
ton feet to the abvss below _ . On the
brink thoic is a rolling creat of white ,
dotted here and there , in sharp contrast ,
with shining eddies of green , as might
a necklace 'of omcrald shimmer on H
throat of snow , and then the leap and

the waters wo shivered into Hoccy

that over folFfrom an India loom , while
from the depths below an ovorlnsting
vapor rises the ineonso of the waters
to the waters' God. Finally , through
the long , unclouded days , the sun bonds
down his beams , and to give the start
ling scone its crowning splendor ,
wreathes the terror and the glory in a
rainbow halo. On either sullen bank
the extremities of its arc are anchored ,
and there in its many-colored robes of
light it lies outstretched above the
abyss like wreaths of flowers above a
sopulchor. Up through the glory and
terror an everlasting roar ascends , deep
toned as is the voice of fate , a dlaptibon
like that the rolling ocean chants ,
when his eager surges come rushing in
to greet and fiercely woo an irrespon
But to fool all the awe and to mark
all the splendor nud power that conies
of the mighty display , one must climb
down the deep descent to the river's
brink below , and , pressing up as nearly
as possible to the falls , contemplate the
tremendous picture. There something
of the energy that croatoa that endless
panorama is comprehended ; all the
deep throbbingsof the mighty river's
pulses are toll , all the inugnillconco is

As ono watches it is not dilllcult to

wore to be given existence in a spot so
forbidding , a spot that apparently was
never to be warmed with CJod's smile ,
which was never to make asiga through
which God's mercy was to be discerned ;
that then Omnipotence was touched ,
that with Tlis hand he smolu the hills

SMOOTH FACE AND LONG HAIR
Tlio Latest Fa l AmouR Now York nut
Ijoiuloti Society Bleu.
The newest fad among the young men
in New York is to let their hair grow
long. It seems that in a certain sot in
London there has arisen ' n sudden rage
for those lengthy locks'which not a
crrcnt while back were looked upon as
effeminate and ridiculous , says the
Brooklyn Eagle. A club man standing
in the window of his club house , the
other day , and tartly commenting upon
the passers-by , noticed one of those
smooth-faced , abundant-locked young
follows , and began to examine the ques
tion in the leisurely , minute manner
tlmt only club-loungers liavo to bestow
upon trifles. Said ho : "See that thing
out there , with a bang all over his head !
I didn't know that had got to this side.
It's the first one of the sort I've scon
bore. Over in England last spring I
saw n lot of them. They are the signal
of a now ideal among the young men
those long-locked fellows aro. When I
was youtii * tlio military typo was what
wo all patterned after. Ilnir chopped
close , big mustache , sijuaro shoulders
and all that sort of thing. Later , the
Prince of Waloriset a new model , which
had less of the military air and more of
the typo of the society man about it. The
hair was still short , but the martial
mustache drooped their poinls , and a
Vandiko beard was added. It was a
vjry picturesque typo , and was better
suited to the middle-aged men like the
prince than to the young follows who
nevertheless endeavored toconform to
it. They weren't satisliod , though , and
when 1 was on the other side a few
months back I saw the enormous influ
ence of the gtngo , which scorns to bo
paramount just now , was appearing in
this. IJoth the beard and mustache
had disappeared and most of the young
swells hau faces as free of hair as a
girl's. They claimed that a man looked
more 'distinguished' with a clean face ,
and I don't know but there is some
truth in the claim. 1 never had any
thing but annoyance from tlio big mustache
tacho I wear , and I think nature trip
ped up when she gave a man hair on
his face anyhow ; it isn't of the slight
est use and it's an awful deal of troll bio.
Well , but , ifs I was saying , the real les
son of the young fellows' clean shave
was the inilnen'co of such men as Irving ,
Wilson Barrett ; and the young 'beauty
mon' on the stage , who , by the nature
of their prpfepston , and often much
against thofr yill , are obliged to keep
their - faces cloan-shuvou. It is a
curious fact ; that when a man takes
all the hrflr * oT ! his face , it im
mediately ' becomes necessary lie
should lot it 'grow on his head. If ho
still keeps his < head cropped , ho gets a
prison-convlct"a plckcd-chickon kind
of air that is eminently unbecoming.
If you will notice , our ancestors of the
past generation , who used to consider
hair on the face an unforgivable vul
garity , were their hair not less than
two inches long. You'll see it in all
the portraits of the judges and senators
3f that day. And , indeed , if you will
look over any book of costumes , you
tt'lll find that in every period a smooth
face and long hair , mustiiohos and a
sloso crop have always gone together ,
3o , us a result of this shaving of coun
tenances , the locks begun to sprout
igain , and now hero's a. specimen of
the fashion among our own gilded
fouths. Kyrlo Bellow has helped on
iho style ; Henry Irving began it. Of
: ourso , there will always bo a lot of red
uced , turnip-nosod , or stocky young
allows who will fight shy of a fashion
.sure to be unbecoming to them , and. c
I'ourse. old fogies like myself will stiel
to our old ways , but I predict an era
and a long ono , of smooth faces am
plentiful hair. "
Mini ami Miujli ino Sound Itc
Isaac Pitman , of Bath , England , i
seventy-six years old. lie invented s
word. Tlmt word 'was phonography. I
meant writing by sound. Mr. Piunai
had invented the only logical systen
of shorthand writing , and the systen :
is in almost universal use at this day ,
This system is named "phonography' '
So well thought out was phonography
that it has required very fov improve
ments since it was lirst given to the pub-
lie. In JSU5 the Phonographic Ho-
porlcrs Companion was established , ami
in 1817 the word phonography was rec-
oirni/ed as a new word in the l nglisli
language. Uut that same year a bab.y
boy wus born in Ohio , and that , boy , at
though Mr. Pitman knew nothing of it ,
was destined to take possession of the
word Mr. Pitman has up to date called
his own. The small boy in Ohio was
named Thomas Alvu Edison , and his
father thrashed him under the name of
I'Yoin about this time forward
"phonography" will mean the use of the
phonograph ; "phonographic , " pertain
ing to the phonograph ; "phonograms , "
letters written by the phonograph , and
&o on. The phonograph enables a per
son lo really write by sound. Not
only has Edison "squatted" on the word
phonography , but it , looks as if his ma
chine would take the place of those who
use shorthand. No man can compote
against a machine. The phonograph
has not to buy elothes nor does it need
to pay board. It can therefore work
much cheaper than a man can. The
improvements that arc now being made
on the phonograph are delaying its ap
pearance as a public worker. People
who expected to have phonographs in
operation last November have not yet
got their machines. The Kdison fac
tory seems to be at work night and dny ,
but no phonographs issue therefrom.
The reason given is that Edison has
made now and remarkable improve
ments On the machine that will astonish
oven tho&o wlro were astonished at the
instrument as shown a few months ago.
He does not wish any machine to go out
without the latest modern improve
Edison is a , gold mine for New York
reporters. Whenever a New York man
wants to make up a special article and
has no subject he rims over to Edison's
place and the old man fills him up with
nil sorts of startling news.

A Wilkesbarro ( Pa. ) dispatch of December -

says : "Tho good people of Hanover

Among his people ho is known as a

When night time came Suhilenski

After ho had the job completed ho put

which penetrate only a little way when
