nitiK hither and thither, nil aenrehinfr
fur a Jilttto of Bufety, no one knowing
whoro to go to got awny from tho
ittvaa titwiroycr. A iiow-hdo bud
deaeended on tho camp, and though
the hulk ol tho nvnlnnehe had rented
t tho tmper part of tho town, in their
wild flight tho unhappy donir.ens of tho
plueo hull' expected that at tho next
moment they would bo buried and
crimhed in a bank of trench onion anow
Alter tho flint ahock was over, the
frightened peoplo, partially rotorei to
useful activity, willioncohiect in viow.
mnlicd np the sliwttotho elevated
bench on tho north sido of Alta, aomo
carrying lanterns, others shovels, and
others with stnyes, poles, or anything
that could he used in diin'inc thmmrli
the snow. About fillcen rods from tho
business ccntru of the town a wild scene
presented itself. Tho snow was piled
up to tho depth of thirty feet, and nro.
jeeung irom mo patKoii snrlueo were
largo oowiuers, Heavy mining timbers,
and hero and there a portion of what
nau once uecn a iramo dwolniig housa.
They realized that from tho location
of tho slido some ol their acquaintances
tueir menus, ana perunps relatives
wore beneath the mighty mass of snow
and debris, and scores of hardy minors
went to work digging away tho snow
irom where bad stood houses oeoupicd
by human boings. While thus engaged
a faint cr of "Help" camo through
the snow ; again it was heard, and
again, but growing moro faint and
weaker ot each successive cry. It did
not tako long to ascertain the direc
tion from which tho voice proceeded.
and when once the men on the surface
had found the location there w.u lively
suoveiing 01 mo snow lor a lew min
utes, bhort as those minutes were,
eacn must liuvo uecn an ago to hun
who was underneath; but the quiek
strokes of tho shovels grew moro dis
tinct to.the cars of the almost doomed
man, and finally ho w as lilted from bis
snowy bed and tho light of a dozen or
more lanterns shone lull In Ins face.
Tho fortunntc-uiiforttinnto man was
(icorgo 'J'omliim, an old gentleman who
nan innuo Alia his home lor several
years. liy his sido, in tho bed on
wbich hoiind boen lyuiir. was tho body
of Michael KeUcv '-Old ilickcv"
who was known to every resident of
Aitaanu vieinny. i ho snow had done
its" work for "Old Mickey." 11a and
Tomlins had retired curly, but wore
not asleep when tho avalitnoho came,
lleliire they knew what was tho mat
ter the building was crushed and the
two men buried under at least nix feet
of snow. "Mickoy'i" back was broken.
and it is thought ho died instantly, but
Tomlins was more fortunate. True to
his former self, alter being resurrected,
tho old man called for a "whisky
straight,"and in quick ucvMwion poured
down several "drinks" of his luvorito
beverage, llo had been "very dry"
during tho duy, and as the whisky ran
freely, long before tho excitement had
censed the old man was on a "jolly
n Lnlo Jomlins and his mate wore
boin uncovered, there was a busy
scene at another plaeo. Tho residence
of Mr. James farcy was in tho course
of tho slide. Above tho sito of the lo
cation tho men commenced working
with thoir shovels, and soon stiocoeded
in finding what had been tho interior
of tho framo bouse, though the build
ing was broken to pieces and some ol
it carried away. A little more shovel,
ing discovered a heart-rending sight,
which caused many of the stern, hardy
miners to shed leant. .Sealed In an
asy-chair, and closniiinT to her breast
nor imam nano, sal Jlrs. Carey moth-
orand child both dead. Near them
were the lifeless remains of tho husband
and futhor, and in another part of tho
room was tbo corpse of an adopted
daughter, a bright little girl altout six
years old, named Laura Wilson. None
of the bodies exhibited bruises of any
kind; they had all suffocated. Tho
expression in the mother's countenance
was one of mingled anxiety and despair,
as if she bad hoped that her dear ones
might yet bo saved, (nt ,ad finally
diod, realising that all must perish.
The snow amend the husliand's body
showed that he hat) straggled hard to
In another place the dead body of
an old miner named Vandrrloen was
Ibtind. Up to last eveninir no other
victims bad been discovered, thouirh a
number of men are niiaeting, and II is
believed they are undor the snow. It
is impossible to tell how many were
killed or what ia the damage to prop
erty j and it will probably be late next
spring, when tho snow mclla, before
all the fact are known. There wore
apparently two slides, each of immense
proportions, which started about tho
same timo ; and though they beaded
at different points and did not travel
the same route, they united immedi
ately altove Alta, tho wholo force and
mass entering and crushing through the
town. One of the avalanche started
from near the Maekay Mine, above
and west ol tho Emma, and on Its course
of destruction swept away the oxten
stve trestle-work and the larfre ore-
nnnso at mo tatier mine, i lis other
started from the Stoker Mine, near the
top of tho ritlgo betwoen the two t'ot-
tniiwoods, and pnssed down a giilrn
cast of tho track of the firxMho Innciion
of tho two being nt tho foot of tho
mountains, on tho elevated plateau
north of Alta. It is titiusul for snow
slides to occur in that vicinity, and
those of Tuesday are tho largost ever
known there, ltnin had been falling
yen' fnst all tho nUenioon, nnd the
snow bad become thoroughly saturated
and soggy with water, and tho weight
ueiug ttitia iiicrcuBt'ti cnuneu Hie Bliue.
Tbo poople of Alta, thouuh not ex
pecting one of the catastrophes, were
fearfufthat nno would occur. Nearly
all night on Tuesday the most terrible
fears rested on tho more timitl of tho
town. The ladies thcro could not lie
induced to sleep anywhere in the
vicinity of the slide, and were furnished
hods in tho lower nnd bettor protected
pari ol tno ourg. , ,
Yesterday morning there was con
siderablo of an exodus from Alta. six
teen men Irom that plueo comnung to
this city, nnd wo nnderRtund betwoen
twenty nnd thirty others will leave
there to-dny. (ino mora avalanche
would havo tho effect of almost depop
ttlating the town. Tbo snow was full
tug very tnt yostcrnnv. and snow
slides were expected nt any time.
At half-past twelve o'clock bust night
Mr. Sol. Kimball, tho Big Cottonwood
mail-carrier, reuched thin city, bring
ing tho sad intelligence that six men
were killed in a snow-slidoin the above
canon yesterday afternoon. Tho slide
occurred between one nnd two o'clock
and was one of the heaviest that has
come down this winter. It started
from near the ton of the mountain
abovo tho liichmond Mine, and, de
scending Willi Irresistible lury, crossed
tho gulch, carried off tho the Welling
ton Company's blacksmith simp, the
two men who were in it nurrowly es
caping with their lives. About one
Hundred yurds holow tho Itichmond
tho elitlo overtook eight "snukcrs"
men who were engaged in drawing tho
ore Irom tho Kithmoiid down the
mountain on raw hides. All of tho un
fortunate party, with their horses. sev
en in number, wore buried iu the aval
anche. Tho miners from the neiirh-
ooring mines turned out and worked
bravely to extricato their fellows, but
only succeeded in saving tho lives of
iwo, nnu ono oi tnoso was so badly in-
iircu lum a is icareu uo cannot re
cover, the mimes or tho two thut
were rescued are (Icorgo McC'orlin and
Thomas Wbito. Tho former, who is
in a critical condition, was entombed
in tho snow thrco hours. White was
relieved irom his perilous situation af
ter ueiug unuer mo snow tinny min

are buriod in thirty feet of snow.
Their names aro Thomas II. Brodorick,
William Itittor, ('harks DubhlcJoseph
Rreozo, Henry Atkins, and Jiouhcn
Moore. When Mr. Kimball startod lo
como to the city, at soveu o'clock lust
night, there were between fifty and
sixty men at work shoveling show in
search of tho bodies. Tho intention
was to con tin no tho digging all night,
and until tho bodies were found. Tho
slide Is said to bnvo run three-fourths
of a mile, and was two hundred yards
wide. Srf Lalx Herald, January 21.

THE ADVANTAGES OF SMALL

A corresiHindunt write to the Dot
partment ol Agriculture from Van
nuren, lowa, tnnt he I running a
small larm ot torly acres, with twenty
under cultivation in fruit, vegetables,
and small grain. "My income varies
from $1,600 to $2,000 a year," he ap
pear proud to acknowledge. The
more industry and intellect ono puts
into on aero of soil, tho more money
bo is likelv to tnlco nut of it. Ilia
judgment should tell him what crop
will pay best in the markets within
Ins reach, with a small farm close in
hand, small taxes, and small outgo for
labor, feed, and working stock. Thore
is both art and good sense in keekping
down expense on tbo farm, and in
ot her brunches of business.
Success in tillngo and husbandry de.
Cenrls on tho capacity of the liuuuia
rain, ralher than on.lho size of one s
plantation. Ono family, by skill, in
dustry and economy, become rich by
cultivating twenty acres only, while
another liimily grow poor by the bud
miinngcinent ol z.uoo under tbo plow.
It is not the piirmiit, but tho man. that
is a failure. Tho lartner often grasps
more acres than he can handle to the
best advantage, and all are more or
less slighted at certain times mid sea
sons to tho injur)- of his cash income.
Labor Is misdirected, or neglected till
out of season, when vitality in seeds
and cultivated plants does no good.
J ii n small farm every blow may be
struck nt the proper moment.
Every person has but a limited quan
tity of Ibrre, physical and mental ; and
it is tbo most common of til mistakes
to dilute and spread this torco over
too large a surface. It is not tho dil
f'usion of tnusular strength, but its con
centration that bores artesian wells,
mid draws a fountain of living water
from the strata of rocks hundred of
feot in thickness to the surface for tho
uso of uneducated man. Diffused labor
on a large farm is like the scattered
rays of light in tho interstellar spucos
beforo the Iclcneopo collects them to
gether, nnd thereby extends human
vision and knowledge to millions of
suns and worlds before unknown.
Tho cultivator of the earth needs

f SPECTACLE OF THTt TIE A VENS.
I bad oc casion, a few weeks since, to
tako tho oarly train from Providence
to Boston ; and for this purposo rote at
two o'clock in tho morning. Every,
thin around wn wrapped iu dnrkiics
and bushed in silence. In-nkm. nnlv lt
what seemed at that hour an unearth
ly clank and rush of the train. It wu
a mild, soreiio midsummer's night; the
sky wa without a cloud, tho winds
woro whist. The moon, then in the
lost auaiinr. bad luat
star shouo with a spectral lustre but
nine aiiccica by nor presence ; Jupiter,
two hours high was the herald of the
day ; the I'loiude. just abovo tha hori

oast i Lyra sparkled near tbo zenith;
Andromeda veiled her newly discover
ed glories from the naked eye in the
south; tbo steady Pointers, far beneath
the polo, looked meekly up from the
lent lis ol too north to their sovereign.
Such was tho glorious spectacle a I
entered tho train. As wo proceeded,
tho timid approach of twilight became
more perceptible; tho intense blue of
the sky began to soften, the smaller
tlaiis, iiko little children, went first to
rest; the sister bcami of the Pleiades
soon melted together; but tho bright
constolhitionsof tho west and tbo north
remained unchanged. Steadily tbo
wondrous transfiguration went on.
Hands of angels hidden from mortal
eye shifted tho cenery of tho heavens;
the glories of night dissolved into the
glories ol tho dawn. The blue sky
now tu rued more softly gray ; the groat
watch-stars shut up their holy eyes;
tho cast begun to kindle. Faint streak
of purple soon blushed along the sky.

with tho in-flowing tidos of the morn

in one great ocean of radiance; till at
length, as we reached tho Blue Hills,
a flush of purple fire blazed ont from
abovo the horizon, and turned thedowy
teardrop of flower and leaf into ru
hie and diamonds. In a flw seconds
the everlasting gates of tho morning
were thrown open, nnd the lord of day,
arrayed in glories too severe for tho
gazo of man, began his course.
I do not wonder at tho superstition
of the ancient Mugians, who, in the
morning of tho world, went up to the
hill-tops of Central Asia, nnd, ignorant
of tho true Owl, adored tho most glo
rious work of bis hand. But I um

Sensation or the Giillotinep.
Tbo London Lancet pretends to know
how a man feels after his head is cut
off. It says: Our readers may re

of Dr. 1'inel .that Tropmann'a head,
having lost under the guillotine the
' sources of common Bcnaation, yot re-
tained hearing, sight, and smell, with
the whole apparatus of consciousness
and intellect. Tho trunk, be main
tained, died quietly and painlessly from
humnriagci in the course of a few min
utes; but tho brain, shielded by at-
niospuenc pressure, retained its blood
and consequently its life for no fower
than three hours. It is still necessary,
il seems, lo reassert tno laot that while

Diitii or AmkricanLakes. Thoro
is a mystery about tho American lakes.
Lake Erio is only sixty or seventy feet
deep ; but Lake Ontario, which is 692
feet deep, 230 feet below the tido level
of the ooean, or a low a most parts
of tho Gulf of St. Lawrence; and the
bottoms of Lnko Huron, Michigan and
Superior, although the turfacc ut much
higher, are all from thoir vast depth
on a Icvol with tho bottom of Ontario.
Now, as tho discharge through tha
Pctroit river, after allowing tor the
probable portion carried "btt by evap
oration, does not appcarlby any mean
equal to tho quantity of water which
tbo thrco upper hike" receive It has
I been conjectured that a subterranean
river may run irom Lake Superior, by
tho Huron, to Lako Ontario. This
conjecture is not improbable and ac
counts for tho singular fact that sal
mon and herring are caught in all tho
lakes communicating with tho St. Law
rence, but no other. A the Falls of
Niagra must havo always existed, it
would pnzzhi tho naturalist totay how
tho fish got into tho upper hikes with
out some subterranean river; more
over, any periodical obstruction of the
river would furnish a not improbable
solution of tbo mystorions flux and re
flux of the lake.

How to Clean Soap Suds. It is
Well known thnt a little alum dissolved
is very effective in cleaning muddy
water; but a short time nine alum
was applied in a mannor which, from
its novelty und it valuable results, i
scarce at present, a littlo alum wa
dissolved in hot water and thrown into
a luh of thick snap suds. In a moment
the sonp cnrttled and acenmnsnied hv
the muddy particle tank to the hot-
loin, leaving tho water perfectly clear,
pure ond devoid of imcM. Tliil water
wus found very useful for washing
clothing again when poured ofT the
sediment. A similar result was at.
tained in a quick mannor, by filling a,
boiler with soap suds, placing it on the
tire and throwing a bit of alum into it.
When tho suds boiled tho tcum went
ovor and left tha water dear, aoft and
