His rrlval on tho scene after tho bhcep ad already been killed shows the mptiness of tho Pbaroa defense that Dodd did it all. It is a wonder the J iiaros did not say that Boyer did it. t could say so with as much reason. Tho reports of Engineer Osborn _nd Hydo, confirming 1 that of Engineer Coleman, and not really confiict- ng with the Dodd report, show that here has boon gross negligence, to my tho least, in this public work. here Is no defense and no excuse or the condition of affairs. j.

Thia etono wa» sold by the man who acted an engineer for the commissioners on the Deer Creek bridge lotting. What kind of a deal a this the commlaalonerB are giving the,people of Caes county? Are they jools or are 'they Ignorant? No such such apparently corrupt scheme has ever been attempted in Case county. •Jlthor the commissioners are too Inno :ent to live or they are tho worst •oeueB ever assembled together in tho name of the law.

And everyone <nows that sand stono Is worked to the boat effect in 10 to 20 inch Btono. JOHN DAVisls the father-in-law of the Pharos. John mustrelleet on this with regret. The thought that so large a man should be thus connected with so small a paper must be galling. The Davis bridge is named after John Davis. If it was named after tho Pharos it would bo all right. It is three feet short and weak at tevery point. This Is all right for the Pharos but it is hard on John Davis John Davis weighs over two hundred pounds and if ho were to build a bridge there would bo no danger o Vhe wind blowing it away. THE Journal hopes that John Davis himself, will not venture on the Davl bridge without a life preserver, an ac oident policy and a passport to Heaven. Mr. Davis weighs over tw< hundred. Ho is a democrat and h would contaminate the water of Ee river whence the city water supply comes. The Journal's advice to John Davis Is, "Keep off the bridge." .

Every day I liear people whom I had supposed to be wholly above any prejudices of this kind i-pciik with :i certain Kort of pride of some friend or relative who "has never lione a day's work!" Frequently I hear women of reduced means who arc unpaged in all sorts of occupations relating with gusto the fact "that they were brought ip to never think of work, and scnrco- y knew how to dress themselves." Some very brilliant young- woman last year, whoso name I am sorry to have forgotten, published a pri/e essay on this .subject—in which she laid tho fault of this universal disrespect for work as a false conception of the Bible's attitude toward toilers; claiming that it was not as a punishment, but as a solace and hope, that God gave rnau labor to perform after his ejection r roro I'aradise. Without doubt the orthodox idea that labor was sent as a curse to mankind has much to do with the world's feel- AUISTOCltACr'N OHKSJT.INO. Infr on the subject. Meanwhile, many people who stand firmly for tho observance of the commandment to "Keep the Sabbath day holy," forget the preceding equally positive injunction: "Six days shall tlion labor," It is u wonder to mo that the clergymen who preach so vigorously on the necessity of observing the Sabbath so seldom mention the necessity of laboring six days to their wealthy congregations. It would be easy to understand tho foreigner's respect for R-ene rations of idle people, if history proved to us that generations of leisure and freedom from :are bred people of higher culture and •eiinumcnt. ft would seem to tha .oiler as if this should be the natural an who, in a point, of tnjfli achievement, or in active morality, or intel- , shall Io;ive a strong 1 iinprcss'on our nation.

The mp.n and the woman who ..../c nothing to do but cultivate their tastes nnd talents, to rest when they are weary, to hear beautiful music, to sec beautiful pictures, ought certainly to bring 1 a hiR-her order of child in tho world than the common burdened toilers, or the worried businessman, who can only allow his wife an occasional pleasure or luxury. And tho third generation of luxuriously reared beings ought to be something very unusual, indeed. But we look about us HEI« DAir.Y OCCUPATION. in Tain to find evidences of such re- units. Certainly they do not exist in royal circles. The childran of the prince of Wnles exhibit, neither physically; mentally or morally, any attributes superior to those we find in the average children of our working people, and they fall very much below the standard of many of the latter who are exceptionally endowed. If wo should make the most careful research through history, I doubt if we could find- one dozen people who had descended from two or three generations of luxury, and were in any respect remarkable or admirable. We are, on thetcontrary, able to count our memorable people, by the score and by the hundreds, who have sprung 1 from the toilers of the world.

The Telegraph, of Folsom. relates how the enterprising Mongol h;is laiused a,rancher on the American river, near Salmon Kills, Kl Horatio county, to think meanly of the Caucasian brain. Tlie river bed at his plaee had never boon mined. .Some I'hinoso offered him one hundred dollars to" let them try their luck on it. Ho stuod out for one hundred and fifty dollars, ball'to be paid in advance and the remainder at tlie end of the year. He exulted when the 'coolies, after long haggling, accepted his exorbitant terras. As soon as the lease was signed the Chinese went to work, and in a. week washed outciffht thousand, seven hundred and twenty dollars, and in all cleared up over thirty thousand dollars. Those sharp Chinamen wore old miners' to be sure, but experience does not count for much in placer and pocket mining The editor of the Petaluma Imprint, who had spent his pioneer years in tho gulches, insists that "it if an indisputable fact that from the earliest days down to the present time in tho mining- regions of California a majority, probably nine-tenths, of the new discoveries have been made by greenhorns." The chief trouble with old miners, ho remarks, is they think they know where gold is not to bo found, and they will not hunt for it m such places. "But along comes th« preenhoro, who hunts for it everywhere, and succeeds in finding- it whero its presence was deemed most improbable or impossible." It is the judgment of another old mining expert that "a. man can yet make a good living working- on any of the river bars, and thero is a large section of California which has never been thoroughly prospected."

Its walls are constructed of a series of class boxes filled with a su'.ution of alum. These boxes are formed of two panes ot glass each four-tenths of an inch in thickness. The glass is fixed, in iron frames screwed together. The whole is so constructed that tho building will resist the influence ot beat, cold, shocks and earthquakes, lietween the points of the iron framework felt is inserted and then the space is covered with boards. The roof is Hat and is supported by cast-iron pillars. It, too, is glass, with strips of rubber covering the joints.

The building is heated and i ventilated on the most scientific, principles.
