) l THE SALT LAKE TIMES. FRIDAY. JUNK 13. 1800. 6 A MYSTERY. That lunlen day no living shadow swept Aoroet the hills, fleet shadow chasing light, Twin of Um sailing cloud; but milts, wool white. Slow stealing mists, on those heaved shoul-ders crept. And wrought about the strong hills while they : slept In witches' wise, and rapt their forms fron i sight. . j Dreamt were they less than dream, tha no blest height And farthest; and the chilly woodland wept A sunless day and sad ; yet ail the while Within the grave green twilight of the wood, Inscrutable, immutable, apart, Hearkening the brook, whose song she under-stood, The secret birch tree kept her silver smile, j Strange as the peace that gleams at sorrow! heart, j Helen Gray Cone in Century, j i feet fiv--tj inches high, are books written all tha of the Old Testament, forming the deiagnof a window in King Solomon-temp- le No lines are used. Written words form the whole design. The writ-ta-g is very minute, but iegible to the naked eye. Ink of three colors was used but principally black ink. It is ave intricate piece of work, marvelous in ita way, and must have taken considerable tame and patience. The work was executed by one David Davidson, apparently in a mood of fervor. He was blind Jim eve, and his manner of writing was to lie "at full length upon the floor, on his stomach, with his eye (he was near sighted) very close to the paper. He died some twenty years ago. Each chapter and verse is numbered. The writing is not running script, but each letter is separate; nor are the letters much, if any, larger than a thirty-secon- d of an inch high. New York Press.

Mr. Biilus has a theory that his wife it too indulgent to tramps and beggars. With a dimly defined purpose of teach-ing her a lesson ho disguised himself the other day as an abandoned vagabond, boldly rang the bell at his own front door and inquired for Mrs. Biilus. "Have you any old clothes to give poor man, mum?" he asked in a loud, aggressive, but carefully disguised voice when the lady presented herself. Mrs. Biilus looked at the soiled, grimy, disreputable looking object lefore bet with some interest. Whether or not she suspected the genuineness of the mendi-cant is not certainly known, but she an-swered : "Nona that would fit you, my good man. My husband is a much smaller man than you arc," She shut the door in his face, and Mr. Biilus made his way back to his office down town. "Darn it all:" he ejaculated, as he sneaked through a back alley, "I must have looked a thundering sight bigger, than I feel just now!" Chicago Tribune, Actor Sothern's Rebuke. An old lady, laden with bundles, stood in the aisle, weary and almost ill with fatigue. Close by her sat a big brute, spread out comfortably.and complacent-ly over tho space that two people could easily occupy and refusing to budge an inch w hen the lady mildly looked with longing eyes upon the seat. Everybody glared at. him, but he took no notice of that; there were muttered words of dis-approval, but he paid no attention to those. At last Mr. Sothern, with one of those Lord Chumley stares, so full of in-nocence and simple good nature, leaned over from the strap on which lie hung and in a very audible stage whisper in-quired: "Excuse me, but would you kindly me what of nerve tonic you use?" Even the roar of laughter which followed in the car did not bring a wrinkle to the mildly beam-ing face of Lord Chumley, but it did make the old hog leave his seat and the car.

One day, as a Sixth avenue barber shop had but one empty chair, a man wearing a very big hat and walking with a great deal of swagger, entered, hung his hat on a peg, and then drawing a revolver he turned to the idle man and said: "I want a shave just a common shave. I want no talk. Don't ask me if I want a hair cut or a shampoo. Don't speak of the weather or politics. If you speak to me I'll shoot." He took the chair, held the revolver across his legs, and was shaved with promptness and dispatch. When he got up he returned the shooter to his hip pock-et, put on his hat, and after a broad chuckle he said to the cashier: "That's the way to keep a barber quiet. He didn't utter a word." "No, sir he couldn't." "Couldn't?" "No, sir; he's deaf and dumb." New York Sun. A Case of Telepathy. A story with a little romance In it is that of S. R. VV.,'of Bridgeport, Conn., who was returning from England ou an ocean steamer. One night he dreamed that his wife, who was then in Bridge-port, opened the door of his stateroom, looked hesitatingly in and then came for-ward and kissed him. When he awoke in the morning the man who occupied the upper berth in his stateroom looked down and said: "You're a pretty fellow to let a woman come in here in the night and kiss you." Pressed for an explana-tion, he described the scene which he had experienced. Arrived at home, he was asked by his wife: "Did you receive a visit from me on such a night? I made you one. I was worried because of the reported storms that night. I dreamed I went out on the ocean and came upon a great, black steamship. I went up the side and along the corridor and opened your door. I saw a strange man looking at me from an upper berth. I was afraid at first, but finally I stepped in and kissed you," St. Louis Globe-Democr- A Duchess' Home. It is expected that the Duchess de Montspensier will make San Linear her principal residence. Her chateau, which is crammed with valuable objects of art, and sumptuously furnished, stands in exquisite gardens, with fountains, lakes, temples and waterfalls, and beyond is a vast and richly wooded park, which is bordered by the Guadalquiver. The Due de Montspensier s home farm is one of the largest and most perfect in Spain. San Lucar, which is one of the most pic-turesque towns in Andalusia, stands on the estuary of the Guadalquiver, and the surrounding country is very beautiful The town contains the palace of the Duke of Medina-Sidoni- a, a very fine old church and a number of convents. Co-lumbus sailed from San Lucar when he started on his third voyage to America in 1498. London World. SALT LAKE CITY.

Useful Information for the Investor, the Home-Seek- er and the Visitor, Salt Lass's Location, Attractions and Climate. Garfield Beach and Other Summer Resorts, Tli city cf Salt Lake has a fame whii s reaches around the world. The population Is about 55,000, and Is Increasing at a rapid rate. Jt is situated at the hase of the Wasatch mountains lu a lovely valley, rich in agricul-tural mtourres and Is eighteen miles distant tram Great Suit Lake. Its elevation above sea level is 4,360 feet. There are many points j ot Interest to visitors In the city and near it. Here are some of them: The Temple. This magnificent creara-whit- granite struc-ture was begun April , l(Wl. It Is 1K)xX0 feet, j the walls are 100 feet high, and the towers.whcn completed, will be SOU leel In height. Over J3.W.00U have beeu expended on the Temple, and it Is now neariua- - ompletlon. In the same snuare with the temple Is the spa-cious building called The Tabernacle. Here are held the nervices of the Mormon c hurch, and these are attended every Sunday by Immense congregations of people, both Mormon and (reutile. The structure is oral in shape, seventy. live feet high and aMHIM feet in length and breadth. It has a seating caps city of 1S.0IH people, and here may be heard what is claimed to he the finest orgn in the world. I'attl once sang in the tabernacle, aud demonstrated that its acoustic powers are very fine. The Gardo Mousa, or Amelia Palace, wan hnllt by Brigham Young who willed that It should be the residence of his favorite wile, Amelia Kolsom Young, but since hie death It has been used as the olllclal residence of dignitaries of the church. Itrigham Young's Residences, known as the Bee-Hiv- e Bnd the Lion House are structures, curious from as-sociations. These are situated in what was once Rrlgham Young's domain, all of which has passed into other hands, save the largo lot lu which is Brigham Young's Urmve. This can he reached by passing through the Kagle Gate, an archway in the old mud wall which at one time encompassed Hrtgham's pri-vate property. One or two of the prophet's wives repose beside his last resting place. A slab of granite covers the grave and there Is space left hear by for the graves of his other wives. Deaeret Museum. This instltntion Is situated on South Temple street, directly opposite Temple sminre. It contains a large number of interesting nnrloH-ltles- , chiefly pertaining to the eariy history of Utah. It is well worth a visit. Prospect Hill with its lookout tower command a splendid 'view of the city and its surroundings. The Tithing Building possesses Interest as being the general depot for taxes collected by the Mormon church from Its disciples. Liberty Park, In the southeastern portion of the city Is a Iwauttful resort and can be reached by rapid transit trains. The Chamber of Commerce, on Second South street, la vlstled by those who take an interest in the commercial standing of the city. There are several large cases con-taining specimens ot Utah's mineralogy which attract much attention. Tho Grand Opera Houso, on Second South street, is under able manage-ment and is handsomely and comfortably fitted up. Some of the best talent In the coun-try is constantly passing between the Atlantic, and the Pacific, and SalFLake city Is always made a stopping place for performances, either the opera bouse or the Salt Lake Theater being selected. This latter place of amuse-ment was built by Itrigham Young over thirty vears ao. It is a large and beautiful temple and Is comfortably arranged. Assembly Hall, near the temple. Is used in winter for worship by the Mormons, the tabernacle being too large to admit of proper heating. Assembly hall Is l)x8 feet, and cost IIW.OUO. The celling Is d with church pictures, among tbem tho Angel Moroni disclosing ttif hiding plac f too golden plates to Joseph Smith. The Matatorlum Is a large circular bathing house, the center ol which, under a glass roof, is a swimming pool. The water Is brought in pipes from Beck's Hot Springs. There are also a large number of bath rooms. Eloctrio Street Cars connect with every point of interest In the city. The system Is new and the appointments good. Rapid transit is assured. Camp Douglas, three miles east of the city and over 400 feet above It, Is beautifully laid out in the midst of lawns and orchards, and the barracks and houses of the officers are built of atone. The post commands a wide view of the city and beyond where (treat Salt Lake lies llki moltun silver at the foot of the western mountains. Beck's Hot Springs are In the northern part of the city about three miles from the business center. They Issue from the base of the mountains, and are regarded as a very valuable aid in cases of rheumatism. dyspepsia and scrofula. The waters are used both In-ternally and externally, and there Is an excellent, bath house Bnd necessary appointments for the comfort of patients, The Warm sulphur Springs are between the Hot Springs and the city, about one mile from the postofflce. There is a good, hotel and comfortable bth house In connec-tion with the springs, aud they can be reached by street railway. The Mountains are unsurpassed in magnificent canyons, and at least a dozen of the grandest are within reach of the city. These invite the tourist to enend davs, weeks or months among their wild recesses to fish, to hunt, to stale the neaks and ridges, and to gather wild flowers by the sides of mossy springs, beneath the sonde of umbrageous pines. Big Cottonwood canyon should be sc-- n by every tourist. Here are lake Marv and Martha from whiou flows the turbulent Cottonwood river; and at the base of the mountains are lakes Blanche, Florence and Lillian. Besides these are Mills creek. Parley's. Emigration, and City Creek canyons, all extremely picturesque and delightfully romantic. Pleasant Drives abound in scores around the outskirts of the city along the quiet country roads, and through the lanes dividing meadows of rich irreen alfalfa and fllds of grain: while the majestic mountains are never entirely lost aiirhtof Krom under the branches of trees and above hedges of the wild dog rose ellmpses are caught of mow.covered peaks. A drive to Fort Douglas, and then a mile further on to the mouth of immigration canyon l most delightful.

I A Case of Ice Fever. The worst case of "ice fever" that has been experienced to date appears to be that of a Pemaquid (Me.) citizen. He had a big load of eighteen cakes, and got about half way down to the wharf, when his cart tongue came out. Not noticing anything wrong he kept on driving bis oxen, and just before he reached the wharf met a team in rather a bad place. He told the driver of the team that he didn't know as he could get by him with his big load, but on being told that ho would have no trouble naturally looked back at his load to see what the fellow meant. His surprise can be imagined. Chicago Herald. An Every Day Game. "Say, there is a feller playing a game on Woodward avenue this afternoon," he said through the telephone, after call-ing up police headquarters. "What sort of a game?" "The sweat box," "Where?"

The Free Press stated that half of the Chi-nese coolies at Tanjong Pagar were down with the disease and there was some dif-ficulty in dispatching vessels, but this seems to have been an exaggeration, as in the following issue the pp?r says: "We are informed that although there is some sickness among the coolies at Tanjong Pagar, it does not prevail to the extent mentioned in our issue of yes-terday, and the effective force available can overtake all the ordinary work of the jjlace, " Kequlrements of the Russian Language. A gentleman who recently traveled on the continent said he was at dinner one day in Paris, and while telling a story was attacked with a sudden and contin-ued fit of sneezing.

It is told of the late Duke of Rutland that he one day met the little daughter of one of his gamekeepers. "Well, little one," he asked, "and what do you call yourself?"
