    A Grand View.
In going Irom the Mammoth Hot
Springs to the Falls of the Yellowstone
the tourist, must abandon his wagon at
Tower Falls, if he is so equipped, and
pack his outfit for the trail. The distance
for packing, however, is but eighteen
miles, if he only desires to go to the Falls,
but if the lake be one of his objective
points he must prepare for forty miles or
more of packing trip by stocking up his
larder and rolling in all his robes, for
these are the coldest points in the Park,
the altitude being 8,000 feet, with the
exceptions of Mount Wasbburne, whose
head obtrudes over all. On this road to
the Great Falls of the \ellowsioue the
principal point of interest are the Tower
Falls, though the whole route is wild and
picturesque, and if the snow is deep on
the divide and on the mountains, as is the
case at this season, the trail will be beset
with game, and elk will become a familiar
sight. Tower Falls are so called because
of a towering mass of stone rising up from
the verge of the precipice to a height of
about 100 feet from the water, where it
breaks over the ledge. These falls are
noted for their simple beauty, falling in
solid sheets for 150 feet, and sending
showers of spray curling up from the
foaming pool below. The volume of
water is not great, Tower Creek being a
small mountain stream, but the water is
as clear as crystal ami as cohl as if drawn
lrom a frigid fountain.
Tbe trail lrom Tower Falls brings the
tourist to a standstill aud abruptly ou the
brink ot an awful abyss, as it leads di
rectly to the Grand Canyon, into the dizzy
depths of which one gazes for the tirel
time with mingled emotion of awe and
admiration. On the opposite side ol the
stream the walls of t ie canyon rise a'.rupt
ly for more thau 2.U00 feet, while on this
there is a gradual descent half way down
of sliding cinuabar and other delicately
tinted chalky formations broken at inter
vals by towering paiuacles of uiiuerai
rock, which stand out in bold relief
against the brilliant background. These
pinnacles take on many tautastic forms,
inspiring the delusion that one is lookiug
down upon the decayiug splendors oi
antique architecture. From ihe base of
these solemn sentinels, the descent to the
water line is as abrupt as lrom surface to
torrent on the opposite side. Far below
winds the foaming current of white crest -
ed wavelets spread out like a silver l>aud.
Although the channel is 100 feet wide, it
appears no larger thau a trout stream.
Hounding Poiut Lookout the tourist is
confronted with a full view of the talis,
where the whole volume ot water breaks
over the rock-ribbed ledge and is riven by
a big black boukler in the centre, and
again united rolls majestically down to a
depth of 370 feet, sending up showers oi
spray which glisten in the sunlight like
lustrous gems under gaslight. The view
from this point is one of bewildering beau
ty. The spectacular splendors of the scene
in the canyon below the falls is brightened
by the effect of the roaring cataract on the
senses. It is the most magnificent scenery
of its class on the continent, with the sin
gle exception ot the Vosemite. Above the
main falls is another which alone would be
a gieat attraction, but is dwarfed into in
significance by ihe lower and larger one
below. Above this, still, is a series of cas
cades, ovtr which the vast volume of water
from tlie lake above rushes and bieaks into
foam everlasting. These rapids can be
heard lor miles of a stdl night, making
much more noise than the taring cataract
at the falls. Here is the upper mouth of
the canyon and the beginning of ten miles
of canyon scenery that pales the Colorado
eari)oiiS into insignificauce.
Elephant*' l)ilike to Doc*.
To no animal does the elephant appear
to have such an intense dislike as the dog,
and the result of this is that many hunters,
who look lor profit and not sport, em
ploy them constantly when engaged in
shooting the lord of the forest. Dogs
destined for this purpose soon learn their
wort, and enter into it with evident en
joyment. One or two lessons are sufficient
to make the pupil perfect, particularly if
accompanied by a comrade that has had
experience. I was several times present
when they were employed by both Boers
and native hunters, and never was more
surprised than to witness the egregious
folly of an animal accredited as the most
sagacious of quadrupetls. When the trail
or spoor was discovered, the cuis were set
loose, and tff thev went upon the fresh
scent as rapidly as their legs could carry
them. Superior speed soon brought them
up with the foe, when barking, snapping,
and even bitmg, at once brought the
antagonist to bay. In this position the
poor beast would be surrouded, some
badgering and threatening him m front,
while others snapped at his heels. Again
he would single out one as the special
object of his wrath, fruitlessly pursue
luni for twenty or thirty paces, of course
by such a step leaving his rear open for
fresh indignities. Again, the irritated
animal would fall on one knee, then on
another, as if in anticipation of crushing
his diminutive IOCB under him. These
devices having failed, he would place his
head against a small tree, and bring all
his powers to bear against it, as if hoping
that in its fall it would crush some of his
tormentors. While the giant is being
thus assailed the hunter can, without the
least apprehension, approach within so
short a distance of the quarry as almost
to make certain of killing it at the first
Deacon Tracy's Front Gate.
In one of the Justice's courts of Detroit,
in a suit for malicious trespass in entering
upon land and removing a fence, one of
the witnesses was asked:
"Did you, help build that fence?"
"1 did."

FUEL GAS. -The prediction lias frequent
ly been made that the common use of coal
for fuel in our houses and factories is to be
regarded as a bungling and dirty Arrange
ment of the past, which we ahoule be hear
tily thankful to escape. Few people how
ever are aware that "the good lime coming
is almost here," and that the process of
manufacturing water gas for heating pur
poses has already had its practical applica
tion on a considerable scale and has proved
a remarkable success. The Youkers N. Y.
fuel gas compauy has spent over $'.00,000
in the construction of apparatus f r mak
ing water gas by the Btrong princess aud
has laid two and a half miles of gas mains
through Jhe business and manufacturing
portions of the city, where the gas is now
used in thirty diffcreut places, including a
hotel, a restaurant, sixteen private houses,
several factories, tin shops, jewelers' shops
tailors' shops, laundries, etc, It is now
ruuning a four horse power gas eugiue,
and is soon to be supplied with one of ten
horsc power; and appliances are coustruct
iug for the use of the gas in forges and for
smelting metals. In short it is rapidly
finding its way into every department of
industry where heat is required, sud has
beeu necessary to develop the brst aud
most economical methods of using it. The
gas costs leas than 15 ccuts per 1000 feet
and the < stablished price is 50 cents per
1000 feet, which is satisfactory to all con
sumers, and profitable to the manufactur
ers. The present production is about 400-
000 feet pel day, autl the amount is soon
to be doubled. The cost of the gas com
pared with the coal is not given; but the
tact that the gas is being rapidly introduc
ed is e vide ace enough of its utility. Jfiven
at au equal cost with coal the saving in
labor in handling fuel, the freedom lrom
dust, the possibility of shutting off the
heat the moment it may be dispensed with
anil llie economy of space, are considera
tions ol great importance. Ihe Youkers'
experiment will be carefully watched, and
uuiess there aie serious drawbacks not yet
heard of, the prospect is that the fuel gas
system will be rapully introduced in all
our cities.
HEN HOIS* GUANO. —The sweeping of
the hen-house through V\ intea may be
manufactured into an excellent and pow
erful guano by the use of a sufficient absor
bent, to be applied in thin alternating lay
ers with the droppings. The mode which
we have fouuci convenient is to use barrels
—first placing au inch of road dust m the
bottom, then half an inch or an inch of the
uroppings, then road dust, and so on in
alternating layers till the barrel is full.
If this mixture is broken up aud pulver
ized the following Spring, it is in good
condition to drill in with seeds or to drop
in the hills of any planted crop. If road
dust has not beeu secured, sifted coal
ashes in larger quantity may be employed
a mixture of dry earth or loam witii which
improves it, or a mixture of powdered
charcoal serves a good purpose. The thin
ner the alternating layers are made the
easier and more pertect will be the reduc
tion of the mass of powder.
IOE upon the farm, and especially in the
dairy, is more and more becoming a ne
cessity. The saving in food, meat, et., by
the use of ice aloue snould lead every far
mer to bui.d an ice house and fill it with
ice during the winter. A house can be
buiL that will supply a family with one of
the greatest conveniences of the hot months
at a trilling expense. Lis wise economy
to build one that is substantial, ami will
last for a long time. It has been carefully
estimated that under ordinary circumstan
ces of harvesting the ice, auu wiih a house
to hold fiom 20 to 25 tons, the ice can be
furnished for tiity cenis a ton. At such a
low rate surely many farmers cannot afford
any loDger to deny themselves of ice dur
ing the hot months of summer. Let an ice
house be built in time for the ice crop.
LIFE ON THE FARM. —In the best at least,
of the older countries the tradesman,
the teacher, the mechanic—not to eay the
commeicial traveler —would congratulate
himself on the good fortune that promoted
him lo the standing of a tieehold farmer,
even though his acres should be few enough
to be counted on his fingers. The notion
that a man stands a little higher who wears
liren and bends over a desk or a counter
than the man who wears cotton and holds
a plow-handle is a backwoods notion. As
a new country sentiment it will go the way
of the log cabins and corduroy rrada
IT is a common error that the roots of
trees extend only as far from the trunk as
the length of the blanches; the truth is
that they are usually longer on each side
than the entire height of the tree. A tree
thirty feel high foims a circle of roots
more than sixty feet in diameter.

A Huge Dwll for St. Paul's.
"Great Paul." the new bell for St.Paul's
Cathedral, London, will take rank among
the six or eight heaviest hells in Europe.
At present her position cannot accurately
be assigned, as she has not yet passed the
scales; but it will probably lie between the
great bell of Olnautz weighing 17 tons 18
cwt. and that of Vienna, weighing 17 tons
14 cwt. Dr. Stainer, the organist of St.
Paul's, says that "when the tone was pro
duced by swinging a heavy ball of iron
against the soundliow a musical note boom
ed out which was impressive beyond de
scription." The bell is 8 feet 10 inches
high and 9 feet 61 niches ID diameter. The
note isE flat, the upper partiala B flat, E flat
and G being just audible with the sonorous
ground tone. The cost of the bell and
hoisting it into its place will be about
$15,000 and it has been decided to use it
for the first time on Easter Sunday.

Natural Wonder* of Orcpin.
From Adam Duncan, who spends the
greater part of his time over on the Colum
bia near Prest rapids, we gleaned some in
teresting facts ra regard to nature s won
ders in that unsettled region. Ono of these
wonders is described as a sort of lake or
basin some four miles long and quite noar
the rapids. When the Columbia is at its
burliest this lake disappears in the ground,
leaving nothing in its stead save a great
number of wells,some of them being near
ly twenty feet in width. The number of
these wells is estimated to be about 160.
Passing about among them they are found
to contain waters of different qualities and
colors, some of them being clear, cool and
agreeable to taste and filled with beautiful
speckled trout, while others are bitter and
black like those Htygian pools renowned
in ancient table, over which the souls of
the damned were supposed to pass on
their lourney to the region of torment.
As the Columbia river begins to run low
in its channel these wells gradually rise
until they overflow and form a lake. Of
the scientist, who is supposed to have a
theory for all things; let us inquire:
"Why is all this!" By what sort of
subterranean, syphonic, double back-action
arrangement are these things brought
übout ? Wby should the water in the
wells rise wheu the watwr in the channel
of the river recedes, and why should
wells so close to each other contain waters
of such a diffeicnt character? Another
natural wonder presents itself for solution
up in the neighborhood of Moses' Cooler.
In the hottest part of the summer there is
a place where large icicles form aud hang
like in midwinter from the tall rocks.
By digging in among the stones or broken
shale large bodies o! ice are found which
seem to form there in midsummer. The
water flowing from among these broken
stones is about us cold as ice itself, but
where it comes from and why these icicles
form in midsummer, while none are to be
seen there in the winter lime, are more
conundrums. The rocky bluff slopes
gradually down from the north in such a
way as to receive tne sun's rays in their
ful.est force, and just back of the bluff is
a level country covered with buuch grass.
Jn consequence of the increasing numer

Jen years age a blast furnace which
would make 400 tons of metal per week on
600 tons of fuel was considered a big thing.
They have blast furnpees in Pittsburgh
which produce 1,500 tons of metal per
week on less than 1,600 tons of fuel. The
old method of heating permitted the flame
to pass out of the furnace stack at a tem
perature of S.OOO deg. F. They are now
using the regenerating stoves in Pittsburgh
and do not let the gases out until they have
utilized all the heat except 800 deg.
