"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.

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.

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.

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 nppuar to have boon of the tlmarlsk or Sliittim wood , of which the ark was constructed u sacred tree ia ancient 1'prypt , and now very seldom found iii the valley of the Nile. The dovo-tnil ties are Just ns sound now us on the 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 bron/o. half the old temple would have beeu destroyed years ago , so precious would they have been for various pur poses. 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 snieces of nut-pine. A few miles from 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- irunks two and three feet in diameter , and twenty or thirty foot in length , were to be snen lying upon llio surface of the ground.

Boston Advertiser : For some months a report has been current in the news papers to the oll'ect that the poet Whittier - tier has caused all his letters to be de stroyed , not wishing posthumous publi cation of the same.

Youth's Companion : Probably the magnificent state of the royal baby of Spain suppnsses that of nny'oltiar infant of western lands , but the retinue of the emperor of China shows how they do such things in the east. The list of his attendants was as follows : Eighty nurses. Twenty-live fan bearers. Twonty-fivo palanquin bearers. Ton umbrella , bearers. Thirty physicians and surgeons. Seven cooks. Twenty-three assistant cooks. Fifty servants and messengers. Fifty dressers ( to put on and take off imperial clothes ) . Seventy-live astrologers. Sixteen governors. Sixty priests. With thirty cooks and thirty doctors it is perhaps a wonder that Kuangllsu , emperor of Chinahas lived to bo seven teen years old.

England , which was slow to take up the telephone , is ahead of us in adopt ing the phonograph. Its use there is already so extensive that the question whether the wax rolls upon which the phonographic sounds are impressed are to pay letter or book postage in trans mission through the mails has come up before the British postollice authorities. The Londoners are said to be in a mild state of wonderment that wo make so little of what is really n remarkable in vention. Perhaps the fact that England Is not plastered over with trusts has BOinothiug to do with its more rapid in troduction into that country. Children Cry for Pitcher's ' Castoria.

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- hpair. 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 face. face.But 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 display begins. 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 fall. fall.Hero Hero more than foam is made. Hero the waters wo shivered into Hoccy Hiiray , whiter und liner than any miracle 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 sive promontory. 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 scon. lu the reverberations that come of the war of waters one hears some thing like God's voice : something like the splendor of Gou is before his eyes ; something akin to God's power is mnnifosUngateolf before him , and his soul shrinks within itself , conscious as never before of its own littleness and helplessness in the presence of the workings of Nature's immeasurable forces.

As ono watches it is not dilllcult to fancy that away back in the immemor ial and unrecorded past , the angel of love bowailpd the fact tlmt mortals 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 and started the great river in HH How ; that with His linger ho traced out the channel acro.-iH the corpse of that other river that had been lire , mingled the sumbeains with the raging waters and made it possible in that liro- blusted'frunic of scoria , to swing a pic ture which should bo , first to the redman man and later to Iho'pnlo races , a certain - tain sign of the existence , the power and Iho unapproachable splendor of.le- hovah.

While journeying througl the desert to come suddenly upon it , the spectacles gives ono something of the emotions that would be experienced to behold a resurrection from Die dead.

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 Tom. 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 ments. Edison is a , gold mine for New York reporters.
