THE LICK" HOKTODBHT. A Grand "Work of Art to Be Erected in San Francisco. k IIupper.slMn'ger's Happy Kcsljcn Accepted by the Trustees—A Description of t.hn Centor Shaft ami Two ot HU-. -Uronzu Groups. In 1875 James Lick, of Calif ovnia, made a bequest in which t».e thirteenth clause (Called for a monument to California representing its history anil industries from the earliest times to the present. The monument was to be "well worth $100,000," a.nd was to be erected in the city of San Francisco. Accordingly the trustees of the James Lick Trust opened a competition for the erection of this monument, inviting' all sculptors, both abroad and at home, to compete. The result of this competition was that twenty-eight designs were forwarded, some from Europe, but inostl}- American productions. On the 12th of September of last year the model of Frank Happersberger was selected as the best and most appropri ate, says Harper's Weekly. Mr. Hap persberger, still a young man, bom in San Francisco, but educated in the art centers of Europe, has already given an earnest of his •work in his monument to ONE OF THE GROUPS. Janles A> Gar . field in the Golden Gate Park at San Prancisco. In the competition for the Garfield monument he easily carried the laurels from twenty-three competitors, though at that time he was but twenty-four years of age. The Lick moument, his latest achievement, Consists of a heavy circular center shaft of light California granite resting on a circular base, and surmounted by a heroic figure of California represented as "Eureka"—a figure twelve Nfeet in height. She is represented standing erect, with spear in CEXTEH 8IL4.FT, LICK MOJTOIEXT. K 'liand and shield by Her side; and at her tfeet a grizzly bear, typical of California. i- 'Beneath this figure, in a broad circle I surrounding-the entire shaft, is an alto, -riKevo of the fruits and agricultural ti- 'productions of California, typical of her |> 'great fertility. | Below this circle" of fruits, and divid- ^ ing-the circumference of the shaft, are •four panels in a'.to-rilievo representing the four principal epochs of California's "history, viz., the Indian era of abo 1 .riginal possession, the Spanish occupa- "lion, the period of American gold dis- .coveries, and the subsequent. era of progress and agricultural development. One panel represents a scene in the pioneer trip "across the plains," its dangers and hardships, and the sturdy character of those that endured that memorable trip. Another panel represents California in its great agrictiltviral pursuits and fruit-bearing capability. The Indian occupation also finds a place on one of the panels—Indians trading •with trappers. Surrounding the base of the central shaft are medalion portraits of the most prominent men whose names are inseparably linked with the history of California—-Fremont, Sloat, Sntter, Serra. Lick. Around the lowest tier of the shaft is a circle of names of other prominent personages connected •with the history of California, the early •explorers and subsequent builders of the : State—Drake, Cabrillo, Portala, Castro, Alvarado, Marshall, Stockton and Yallejo.. In the rear of the shaft lie two flags, the American flag at Monterey covering and replacing the bear flag- of Son(5ma. Forming two* wings of the whole itrncture. are two massive pedestals lupporting the o main bronze •oups. These [groups are eight •feet in bight, and about six feet "broad at the base. One group .represents the ^mining period, to which California owes so much of k her greatness, j. Three miners are f! deliberating-over ^ the finding of a Pp nugget of gold SECOND SIAIN GROUP. §£ by one of them. This group is a typical Pr one, and has been well handled by the r sculptor. The second main group also p consists of three ' figures—a Spanish (5 raquero in the act of throwing a lasso, v.» missionary, and an Indian, f The central shaft of the monument, ^near its base, is encircled with the in^•cription: "Dedicated to the city of San .Francisco by James Lick." The entire height of the monument will be fifty leet, and the length fifty-five feet. It w^jL be executed in San Francisco, F-fwhere the sculptor has already started on t}ie heroic fijure of California. The sltHfor the mdnument could not have been more happily selected. It is to be placed in an elliptical enclosure directly in front of the new City Hall. APIARY SUGGESTIONS. In Vrinter Are Good Indicators o! the Temperature. According to late estimates, says the Practical Fanner, there are now about 800,000 bee-keepers in the United States whose ranks are rapidly being reinforced by men and women who go into bee-keeping as a hobby or for -experiment, and who find the pursuit so fascinating that they soon make it their sole occupation. There is no danger of the country being overstocked, and the demand for honey still exceeds the supply. Hundreds of thousands of pounds of American honey now finds its way into European markets, where it sells for good prices. Some time'ago a CJirefu] estimate showed that honey secretion in this country was over 10,000 pounds for every CHO acres annually. A large and prosperous colony ought to gather and store up from twenty-five to forty pounds of honey daily, but it is important that such colonies should be large and properly attended to. Hundreds of colonies fail to yield their proper amount of honey, owing to imperfect care at this season of the year. The later bees are housed the better, provided the weather remains warm enough for them to fly and void their faces. If the hives are to be wintered in-doors they should not be taken in until cold weather is really here. The proper temperature for bee- cellars is an important point in winter- keeping. The general temperature is acknowledged to be about 45 degrees, but other questions, such as size of colonies, hives, humidity of the atmosphere, and the time of the season, require that this temperature should vary somewhat. A large colony does not need as much warmth as a small one. If the cellar is very dry the temperature may be allowed to go down lower, but if moist the temperature should be higher, for the warmth will absorb more of the- moisture then. If- very moist, charcoal or unslaeked lime should be placed in the cellar to absorb the superfluous moisture. When the bees have gone into a hibernating sort of state, It is well to keep the tejpperature just about so, for it is unprofitable to have them awakened from this sleep until spring is here. The bees are a good indicator of the temperature. If it is all right they will remain quiet, if not, they will show signs of uneasiness.. DAIRY ICE .HOUSE. One That Can Be Built at a CompHratlve- ly Small Expense. Have the hquse when possible by itself—not in a hollow or where water can run into it from a bank, says Hoard's Dairyman. Having selected this, prepare the bottom. If. the soil is sandy or of a porous nature, it will need no drain; but if not, great care should be taken to arrange for drainage. In an ordinary house, dig a trench through the center thirty inches wide and twelve deep. • Fill this with loose stone to within three inches of the top, and slope all parts of the bottom to this drain. Then fill to the top with shavings and straw, • covering over with loose boards, and yon will have a drain that will carry off all the water and let in no air,. Foundation walls are better of stone or brick; if not, set posts in the ground to build on. Set posts GxG at- the corners and every ten or twelve feet between, filling between these with 2x4 studding, set flush wili the outsfde. Put boarding on this; on the boarding nail 2s4-'s, putting the outside boarding on them. This makes an airspace of four inches. Now place inside another set of 2x4 studding, which will leave a space of. ten inches for filling; ceil between this and fill with sawdust or shavings. Be sure it is filled solid and dry. You now have the body of the ice house, with an air space of four inches and inside ten inches of filling, making a perfect house that will not warm through. Have the inside smooth so that the ice will settle and not catch. Make an ordinary true roof. The roof should project at least two feet, and be of shingles or boards. -It -is well to board over the loft inside, as it stops all heat from the roof.' Openings to the air should be as few as possible and made to close tight. If a cheaper or poorer house is wanted, you can- leave out the air space and fill solid with shavings or sawdust, but filling should be ten to fourteen inches thick. Whitewash the house; it costs but little, anf) •will make it last much longer. CHEAP SHEEP RACK. It Prevents Sheep from Rubbing the Fleece on Top of the Neck. The illustration here shows a portion of a sheep rack cheaply and easily .made, and which has;the advantage of preventing the sheep from rubbing the fleece on top of the neck. For one length, 16 feet, G posts 2x4x40 inche? rr ».K»> second ancf on the^BHijMfJoe posts and the upperboard^icEes^ibove the so on itheinside of the posts. All of the end boards are on the outside of the posts. . It is best to bevel the inside of the posts at the top to give more width between the two top boards for convenience in filling.—Oi-ange Judd Farmer. Whose Face \VttB II? A few years ago while a workman at Pueblo, Col., was dressing a block of stone his chisel uncovered a hard concretion near the surface of. the block. Presently this concretion, which was rounded on the back, dropped from the cavity in which it rested, disclosing a perfect model of a human face on its under surface, every outline perfect, unhurt and unmarked by the tool which had dislodged it. The imprint in the block was as perfect as the model on the concretion, and many plaster casts were taken from it by archaeologists and local curiosity-seekers. Some of these casts found their way to the museums of the learned societies of Europe, where they created much excitement and were the subject of many debates. Many scientists were inclined to take it as a perfect human fossil, but the majority insist upon it being merely an idol of prehistoric times. The stone in which it was found was from eighty feet below the surface. —Tontenelle' preferred his asparagus dresser! with oil; but his friend, the AbbV Terrasson, liked it'with butter. The latter coming to. dine with him one day, Fontenelle unselfishly ordered that half the asparagus should be dressed his way and the other half Terrasson's. Just before sitting down to table, the abbe was .struck down by apoplexy, whereupon Fontenelle rushed out of the room and shouted to his cook : "All the asparagus with oil! All of it with, oil:" —All tVe Same,—An artist who had engaged a. peasant as a model, and who had nearh' completed his sketch, was somewhat astonished at finding another man in his place one morning when he went to work, with the following explanation: "Hug your pardon, Mr. Painter, but. ;is Scppi had no time today, he ii.sk(?i'l me to come and tn.ke his plact!. 1 '—Mk«,'«ule Blatter. —The Wife—"I loave your roof tomorrow."

Col., there is a cave literally swarming with- spiders of a curious species of immense siae, some of them having legs four inches in length and a body as large as that of a canary bird. The cave was discovered in December, 1870, and was often resorted to by the pioneers, who obtained the webs for use in place of thread. Early and late the Ckve constantly resounds with a buzzing iioise which is emitted by the spidM'? <vhile they are weaving their netr*. What He Was UohiR. Jackson—What are you doing now?

DAYTON, TUNS,-., i beautiful town of 5,000 in n-,tbitants s located on the Queen and Crescent Route, 2S3 miles south of Cincinnati, hu hitherto kept aloof from the' excitement attending the boom of the New South; but the possibilities offered bv a town already established with an inexhaustible supply of coal, iron and timber, and with cokeing ovens, blast furnaces, factories and hotels in operation, were too great to escape the eye of the restless capitalist, and a stronj party of wealthy men from Chicago, Chattanooga and Nashville, in connection with prominent banking firms in. New England, have formed a company to be known as the Corporation of Dayton, for "the sale of town lots, the establishment of industrial enterprises, etc. It is an assured fact that within she months D;iyton will have another railroad from the bouth-east, which will make it an important junction and transfer point for nearly one-fifth of the freight and passenger traffic between the Great North-iyest and the South-east. In addition to this it is located on the Q^ and C., one of the largest and most important of the Southern Trunk Lines. It is in the midst of the fertile and beautiful Tennessee Valley; has already an established reputation as a prosperous and s. e manufacturing town and some additional strength as a hcwlth resort. The strongest firm at present located there Ts the Dayton Coal & Iroi, Co., an English Corporation, who have built a standard gauge railroad to their mines, and own •20.1X10 acres of pood coal and iron and timber land, just West of and adjoining Hayton. It is proposed to have a Land Sale pecember 3rd, 4th and 5th, and special trains will be nn from New England also from the important cities of the North and North-west, which will undoubtedly be a great success, as tke plan is to discourage extravagant prices and put the property in the hands of the people atapncc where the) can afford to hold and improve it. lixcursion tickets, Cincinnati to Dayton and return, will be sold by agents QUKBN .AND CKKS- CKNT ROUTE and connecting- lines North.
