This morning atout 8 o'clock a team of horses belonging to T. A. Davis, which were attached to a single seat falltop wagon, started from the corner of Sec-ond South and West Temple streets on a rnnaway. The driver lost his presence qf mind at'tbe first break and jumped to the ground. The- - team almost as soon as it started brought the vehicle in con-tact with a telephone polo and snapped off the pole. With this dangling at their heels tbey ran as far northward as First North, where Ibey we.--e finally storped. The horses are uninjured, and the only damage sustained was to the wagon, which has a bent asle. . SALT LAKE EYENING TIMES, The Timrs' Telephone number is 491.

" TUESDAY, APRIL 1, 1890. , Teach Old Zala Chief. The old chiefs in South Africa kne nothing about trekking, and on scvei occasions became so impatient that th started off on foot ahead of the wagor One day they had to walk thirty-se-miles before reaching water and tin had to wait two days on scant ratio before wc came up with them. One these men is 75 years old, but the tou old Zulu (tho Matnbtle rulers aro of Zu origin) wa:i none the worse for the esc pade. On another occasion, in spite of oi warnings, they left us, armed only wi assegais, in the worst part of the li( country. When wo followed a fe hours afterward we saw that their foo prints in the sand had been partially o literated by the spoor of a lion. For unately, however, he had followed the only for some hundred yards, and thei probably not being hungry, he waj dered oil toward a pool of water. Such vagaries were to us a source constant anxiety, for how could we fa the king without bringing back his h dunas? Our own lives would not ha been safe. Wc should have been claims at) impostors or accused of witchcraft. However, we managed to divert the; minds and keep them employed at tli wagons by shooting twenty-sir- e gra monkeys for them. Theokinsof tins pai ticular epecies are only worn by royalt or big chiefs. Cor. London Telegraph. Star bicyclesPembroke, agent, ', W. E. D.

Lots at $12.50 Apiece, ,'., " V Think of it! You can secure forty-nin- e lots at the insignificant price of $12.30 each. This great offer is only for the purpose of advertising. Read this care-fully; the opportunity of a lifetime is herein presented. There is a tide in the affairs of men which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune, careful that you do not wait for the ebb. This great offer pos-itively holds good but for , , ONE WEEK, commencing Monday, March 3Ut, and closing Saturday, April Gth. . Read care-fully the following conditions, and then you will understand where the advertis-ing comes in and why we nan afford to sell lots for the insignificant sum of $12.50 eacb, which are really worth $150 apiece. The simple conditio: ; is, that each purchaser must introduce at tho ollice of the Great . Trans-Jorda-company, 274 Main street, near the Clift Hon re, a man or woman over 18 years of age for each lot purchased. There is no limit to the number1 or lots a single individual may purchase, except bis or. her ability to introduce people to our oflioe. Someone must be brought to us and introduced for each lot procured at this trifling We must and shall enlarge the circle of our acquaintance and keep the office full of people. That alone will more than compensate us for the loss in-curred id selling a limited number of our lots away below cost. These advertising lots will be sold only for. cash, and all lots must bo paid for when selected from the maps in the office. '.. , Parties residing outside the city can secure some of these lots providing tbey have their remittance of money at the office by Saturday the oth, and in lieu of a personal Introduction to us, (or each lot tbey may purchase they must send two names of person i to whom we' can send maps, circulars, etc. The names sent may be of persons residing jn their own towns or elsewhere. There must be two names sent for each lot purchased These lots offered at $12.' are very choice and have been sold at private Bale at from 50 to 8150 i each. The prices will be advanced weekly, until in the summer the 8000 notch will be reached. Will you show wisdom pr will you be a clam? If you are wise you will load up at the bottom figure, If you have a perverse or over cauiioua nature you will make sneering, disparaging re-marks about those snide $12.00 lots, and in less than three months wili be eagerly seeking to buy them at from three hun-dred to five hundred dollars apiece. The office will be open for the selection ot lots and the introduction of strangers from 'J a.m. to 8 p.m. every day except Saturday, when the sale will close promptly at 3 p.m. Call early and avoid the closing rush. Next week a similar offer will bs made but at a greatly ' (, ADVANCED PKICB PER LOT. We shall publish in the daily papers a list of the purchasers for this week in order that they by next week oan unjrsell us and yet , receive a fair margin of . profit upon their. investment, We shall pub-lish the names and addresses and advise our purchasers for next week to buy of those before coming to us. The prices will positively be advauced every week. Tho title to the lots is absolutely per-fect. To every caller we give a map and other printed matter; to every purchaser a copy of abstract titlo insurance policy and warrantee deed. Bear in mind that hundreds of the best citizens of Salt Lake now own lots in the same plat. If some one tells you that the lots are low ground, away out without transportation, doq't believe him, but come to the office, get a map and go look at the lots yourself. The only limiii to the number ot lots you can purchase is the number of people you can introduce.

The syndicate owning and. controlling this great suburb has recent-ly been reorgauized and some of the most active real estate pushers that have ever been in the west, besides sufficient capital for improvements of the most extensive and comprehensive character have taken an interest. The great ad-vance in acreage ot an eligible character has made every lot lh the entire town plat worth ten to twenty times its value of eight months ago. For one week commencing Monday, March Ul the lots will be upon the market at a mi fo nom-inal price and a very limited number for advertising purposes at about one-tent-the actual value. The price will be ad-vanced weekly for the entire year, and the first few weeks will witness a few wise people getting on the ground floor.

THE NEPHEW OF A MILLIONAIRE Seeking in Vain for Sufficient Bail to Keep Him Txom Behind . the Bars, A somewhat:, sensational glimpse of domestic life crme to the surface yes-terday which, while 'pointing u moral," certainly does not serve to adorn a tale.'' Some time Inst February Mrs. Lorenzo S. Stevens, an estimable lady who is moving in society circles in this city, ar-ranged to visit California for a month or so. But before lonving tho city she rented a port ion of her elegant residence to Mr. H. C. Lett, who with his daughter Nellie movetl in. - The husband of Mrs. Stevens, woo, it is said, is a nephew of Sidney llillon, the many times millionaire ot Wall street fame, und once president of the Union Pacific railway, is a man ot perhaps forty-fiv- e yeurs of nge, and who, at one time, through ' the influence of hie uncle, had as bright a future before hiu as it was possible for man to have; but his instincts, were ot that order which tindo compan-ionship with the degraded of both sexes rather than with the circles which honor society. He neglected his devoted wife and b'jeame the associate ot gamblers and the follower utter females whose mciruls sink below the notice of virtuous women, and who make it a business to prey upon the low tendencies of men having money to spend upon their de-pravity. Once, while Mr. ami Miss Lett were occupying apartment's in the Stev-ens mansion, this wnuStwvens brought a gang of hit) boon companions to the house and so annoye-- the Letts that Miss Nellie's father compelled them to depart, and tho next day Miss Nellie was invited by Mrs.Shap Walker to become her guest, which, she did. Miss Nellie left a large porifon of her wardrobe in ber rooms at one Stevens house, locking the doors t) prevent intrusion. Meantime, and duriugthe residence of Miss Nellie with MririWalker, Mrs. Stevens returned from California Hnd was shocked at the turn of events. She knew her husband's frailties, however, and had long been a sufferer from his worse than neglect ot herself; and she at once instituted a search among ber valuables, only to discover that some of her jewels and other articles had disap-peared. Miss Lett, at the same time, found that her doors bad been opened by false keys and some of ber personal effects carried off. By dint of persistent espionago, Mrs. Stevens was not long in tracing her husband's latest weakness to the person of a siren named Cena King, a girl of not more than nineteen years of age. ' Mrs. Stevens then made a conf-idante of. Marshal Young. It did not take the marshal many hours to solve the problem of domestic infelicity which had been placed in his hands, and the result was that yesterday he arrested Lorenzo S.Stevens and Cena King, charging the formur with both grand larceny and petit lorceny, and the latter with being an accessory before and after the fact. The first charge against Stevens is based on the robbery of his wife, he having taken from her apartments during her absence a gold bracelet, valued at $ 100; a diamond ring ot the same value as the bracelet, and a silk skirt orth $20. From Miss Lett's room had been taken a gold headed um-brella, valued at $10; an ornamental vase of about the same value as the um-brella; a pair of ulippers and a hat, worth together about $1.50. It was dis-covered that these articles had been pre-sented by Stevens to Cena King, and it is probable that they may be restored to their owners. This morning Stevens was pormitted to go about town with a officer to seek bail pending his examination, which will take place next Thursday morning, be-fore Justice Laney, but up to latest ac-counts he had not been successful. The amount was fixed at $1000. A few days ago Mrs. Stevens sold her tine residence, which is on Main street almost opposite the Walker residences, for $25,000, it be-ing her property in her own r'ght. Stevens may escape punishment for his outrageous conduct, so far as the grand larceny charge is concerned, it being a legal question whether a man can rob his wife; but he will surely meet the consequences of his petty thieving. There is not the slightest doubt that proceed-in-for a divorce will, follow this dis-graceful expose. WIIEILE FLOWERS GROW. ASTORIA, LONG ISLAND, A LAND OF BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS. What Goes On in One of the Great Green-houses Which Supply New fork with Flowers und rinnts The Problems of Forcing and Hybrldliatlon. To one in search of poesy or anything above the dull level of the commonplace, probably the last spot which would sug-gest itself as likely to yield it would be the typical, pronaio Ing Island town. Yet ono of these, and one of tho most prosaic at that, is paradoxical as it may appear a veritable land of flowers. As-toria teems with lovely, though hidden blooms. If the flowers which the florist's jealous care covers fro'iu the inclement weather were left exposed,' they would spread over thousand's of acres, and make of the little town a garden of loveliness. For eight months in the year the daily supply of flowers to this city amounts to $15,000 worth, while on special occasions, such as Easter and other holidays, the amount is nearly doubled, and the greater part of this supply comes from Long Ialand. The largest of the Astoria nureeries stands just within the limiU of the vil-lage. The wide expanse of turf around it is dotted wi'.h no Ism than thirty-on- e greenhouses, whose glistening roofs com-prise some 75,000 squwe feet of glas.s. The hybridization of plants to form new specimens is in no small measure dependent on chance. The method em-ployed is in itself simple, and consists of dusting the pollen from the bloom of ono plant upon the stigma of the other, the resuit being a flower partaking of the characters of both. Tho incidental cir-cumstances, however, are almost impos-sible to regulate, save by scientific ap-plication and tho minutest care. The selection of two plants which are liable to join, is, in itself, a test of the floricul-turists skill, and this being achieved, the temperature must be regulated to the convenience of the plants, and tho dry-ness or moisture of tho atmosphere care-fully watched. Yet, in spite of all pre-cautions, and for no apparent reason, the attempted hybridization is often a fail-ure. Some of the best discoveries ever made in this branch of horticulture have been brought about accidentally, the beautiful chrysanthemum called Mrs. Alpheus Hardy being the result of one of these fortunate blunders. F0P,CIN'O BLOSSOM3 AND FECIT. Another problem which has from tme immemorial busied the nurserymen is the question of producing blooms or fruit at stated periods by forcing, in defiance of natural laws, and although thisthas not yet been reduced to a certain law, important ' improvements have been made. A skillful gardener can, by the regulation of .beat, moisture and ferti-lizers, considerably advance or retard tho production of any plant. In Japan, w here floriculture has attained to acien-tiii- c heights as yet unknown in America, the precise dav can be fixed for the blos- - soming or fruition. Only a vast experience can foretell the degree of heat necessary to a plant, and iu all nurseries the greatest precautions are utilized to insure succrss. In the nurser-ies referred to, more than 40,000 feet of pipe aro used for heating, while a wind-mill pumps 30,000 gallons of water daily for use in the hothouses. The regulation of heat varies with the nature of the plant. Tho difference of temperature be--; tween individual hothouses is marked; for, while in one thero will be 100 df gs. or more of dry, parching heat, the next will be almost cold', and the air of another may be heavy with a moist heat which turns it into a vapor bath. The amount of forcing also varies with different species of plants, some thriving under it and displaying marvelous beau-ties which they never attain in their native ntate, while others, like the slen-der Dcndrobium Thyrsifloruni, refuse to depart from ordinary laws and die when artificial nieaus uro applied. The plants are watered every day, and in Rome cases twice or three times a day. This alone takes up a considerable amount of the workmen's time, but it is nob tho only attention claimed by them. A daily round must bo made in each greenhouse and each oue of the growths investigate ed, certain plants clipped or grafted and weeds and withered leaves removed from all. To the floriculturist flowera have 'no romance. Their cultivation to him is a mere matter of commercial value, and the sight of a florist and his apprentices seizing delicate plants by tho handful and pulling them hither and thither al-ways fills the layman with alarm. , A HILUO.N PLAI.-T- UKDEIt GLASS. '. Each of tho spacious hothouses is de-voted to a single plant and its varieties, and the whole number aggregates near-ly 1,000,000 plants. This tir;n handles more ferns than any house in tho coun-try, and it sends out over 100,000 ferns annually. All sorts and conditions of ferns are represented, and from tho well known Adiantium, nr maidenhair, to the Dixona, or tree fern, which frequently sells for $50. The other hothouses contain a pris-matic gradation of colors, from the pule yellow of jonquils to the burning orange of tho large amaryilis, and from the daz-zling white azalea to its richest deep red shade. Of course, rosea are plentifully represented; the well known La France is here; also tho majestic American beauty, and the newer varieties which have superseded these in popular favor, as the Bride, Puritan, William Francis Bennett and Mine. Holatie. The fashion in roses,, like every other, is subject to fads, and their prices are greatly affected in consequence. When a rose is "the rage'' the smallest platt, as it sprouts in the tiny pots known as "thumb pots," is worth from $1 to i; while later, when its popularity is on the wane, the same plant fetches barely five or ten cents.

Much interest is being awakened by a portrait of Burns now on view in Princes street. The picture haa been quite re-cently discovered, and though the final word haa yet to be spoken by thecxperts thero is every reason to suppose that the portrait is by Sir Henry Raeburn. In a letter from the artist, written in 1803, he mentions having dispatched a portrait of Burns in a fishing smack from Leith to London to a well known firm of pict-ure dealers. The later history of the picture is not yet satisfactorily cleared up, but from internal evidence there is every reason to believe that the present picture is the portrait alluded to in the letter. Tho coloring is rich and mellow in tone, and the figure stands out from thecanvas with lifelike force and reality. The poet is painted seated in an arm chair, with one leg crossed over the other. . There is much individuality about the treatment of the figure and face, and it is curiously different from Nasrayth's portrait; but as the latter picture was done as an order from the publisher for a frontispiece to the poems, it may be supposed that the face was somewhat idealized. . . In this portrait the eyes are full of fire and the eyebrows (generally a marked feature in people of the artistic tempera-ment) are broadly defined and have a stamp of marked individuality. Tho forehead, one of the most characteristic features in an intellectual face, is unfor- - tunately almost hidden by the heavy black hair; the lower part of tbe face ia somewhat coarse, It is difficult, when looking at this picture, to know how much to gather from the face itself, or how much we read into it from our knowledge of the character. Whether it prove to bo the missing Raeburn or not, it is a decidedly fine piece of painting and a most suggestive portrait. Mur-ray's Magazine. KaubHH AIUhui-c- . Wichita, Kan., March 31.
