SPOKANK, Wiisli., Mtiruh 30.—As a result of two tfruat snow-Slides Thursday on Canyon creolr, in the Coeur d'Alone mountuins, three families, consisting: altogether of from twelve to fourteen persons, are mangled and bruised beneath thousands of tons of snow, and any possibility of any of them being rescued alive is out of the question. Snow had aceuinulated on the mountains to » depth of 00 feet, and the late rains caused the huge mass to move at several places. At an early hour Thursday a section of snow 300 feet in length, near the Klaok ]!ear mine, became detached and started down the steep mountain «idn at a terrific pace, and before the inhabitants of the cabins in the path of thu slldo could floe the mighty avalanche wus upon them. Trees were torn up by the roots, bold era carried along with mighty force, the whole shaking the earth as if au earthquake was coroinjj. Two families, whose names could not be learned, together with their homes, •were cauiflit and curried along 1 with the slide and buried out of bight at. the bottom of the canyon. Others unac- countod for v are also believed to have been killed. .Soon after the first slide took place another occurred further up the canyon near jiurke, and hero further latalities are reported. A family named Chilson, consisting of father, mother and three children, heard the avalanche coming 1 . Picking up the children, the frantic parents attempted to tlee to a place of safety, but before _they had gono fifty yards they were overtaken by the resistless mass of snow and crushed to death. Rescuing parties have started for the scene from Wallace, Burke and Mullen by special trains, and every effort will be made to rescue alive those buried beneath the snow, but the probability is that all are dead. Further slides are feared and the people living along the canyon are moving to placus of safety. your family, I've got :i rumiiy, ion. n I go back und tell Uio uompu.ny 1 can't find tlmt car what is niy family to do?"

It is a tree which bears persimmons on one side and wild crab apples upon the other. Of course, as a mutter of fact, there are two trees, but it takes a. very closa examination to convince a person . that there are. They have grown, so closely together that each has lost its identity, so far as appearance is concerned, and the people in its neighborhood insist that it is but one tree. Tho persimmon side is the most fruitful, ;iml produces a fairly g-ood yield of fruit, which is not in the least altccted by the presence of tho crab apples. The other side does not bear very well, iind it is' only during an occasional yew that there is a yeld of crab apples, but botli sides have been known to bear proof! crops in tho same year, Tho roots have never been examined.—St. Louis Globe Democrat. Complexion auti i;iuiLminvr»n. There are over three thousand pores to every inch of sUin on tho body. Those pores are openings for the hairlike sweat glands, which turn and coil until, in the body of an ordinary-iized person, their length represents a distance, of twenty-eight .miles. If, through a lack of bodily cleanliness, the openings of this immense system of drainage become clogged, the result is apparent to a reasoner. Perspiration through these pores is nature's method of throwing off effete matter, and it cannot be done withont the help of bathiug.' 'Without a clean body it i» not possible to keep 4 good complexion. St. Louis Republic. If you wunt to get an idea of the immensity of American railroading-, talk to a cur-searcher. The United States covers a pretty larg-e area, as some one observed, but the rial road men, and particularly the car-searchers, kno-.v their way about it a.i a policeman knows his beat. A car-searcher, be it said for the benefit of the uninformed, is an ollicial sent ont by one of the companies to look for cars which have been borrowed by other lines and treated like borrowed umbrellas. Of course, these ofiiciais are experienced men, a great trust IN reposed in them and they luive a great weight of responsibility to carry on their shoulder*. One of these men whom I met :i few evenings ago talked of one cur "somewhere around by Eagle Pass," or a chance of finding another at Portland, Ore., as if these places were only a few squares the other side of liroadway. Oe had been sent out by one of the big lines that cover the territory between New York uud Sea-tile to Iind oertitin freight cars that liml been running lip long bills -for "demurrage" against their borrowers, "Demurrage" is a charge made by the owners of a car, at so much per day, for the time the car is kept away from its own line. "They'll take a car," he said, "somewhere down south, and, instead of sending it back when they're done with it, will use it for some other work. That goes on and on until, first thinp you know the car gets in a smashup." "Then you have no more chance of finding it," I interrupted. This was where I displayed my ignorance. "Haven't I, though? I go to where the car w»« sent and make them show me Che books. Let me tell ,'you about one car belonging to our line that got away down south and . nobody could trace it. Tho agent at tliat depot was a little bit of a man, all beard. When I showed him tho entry on his books and asked him where that car was he said he didn't know anything about it. •One night,' he says, '1 left it here on tho siding and when I uame next morning it was gone. Some of those freight conductors must have come in here in tho night, and looking around for a car, they just took tliat one.' 'You're a • liar,' I said. 'I've been railroading all my life, and I know that conductors don't go rawhiding about a yard at night time looking to get cars. They ain't so anxious to find extra work as all that. Mow,' I said, 'you just tell me where that car's Rot to or I will report that you lost it.' Well, he commenced whimpering about his family and how he'd lose his job if I got him into trouble about that car. At last he owned up that one day they were short of cars in the yard; they took and loaded up our car with agricultural machinery for Atlanta, I3a., the train was wrecked and the car was all burned up. 'If you !s»d told us that at the time,'I aaid, 'you would have had to pay three hundred or four hundred dollars. Now you'll ha-ve to pay about seven thousand dollar* for demurrage, and serve you rijrht An for J)o Sick J'eoplc Kvcr Sm i t'/.o'.' For something over twelve months the readers of medical literature have been confronted in Miinill caps with the conundrum: "Ho the sick ever sneeze?" Wo do not know why this inquiry has become NO popular; no prize has been attached to its iinswer. in fact, comments and replies are. not solicited. Hut the simple qi-.c.ry has been traveling around from Shefliuld and London to Texan, Oregon and Philadelphia, and it lias not been answered yet. There ;iri- sorno problems which the human mind shrinks from KTapplinfr with, sometimes because they ore too deep and consuming, or, again, because v.-e dread the consequences of an awful uncertainty. No medical man has yet dared lo come out and squarely say in so uian3' words that the fielt do not sneo«w. und the world is curious to know whether this is duo to fear or incompetcncy, or is it that the doctors simply do not kno'.v? —Medical Record.
