He was a guileless college youth, ; That mirrored modesty and truth; And sometimes at his musty room His Mster called, to chase the doom. One afternoon when she via i there Arranging things with kindly care, As often she had done before, There came a knock upon the door. Our student, sensitive to fears Of thoughtless comrades' laughing Jeers, Had only time to make deposit Of his dear sister In a closet, Then haste the door to open wide, His guest unbidden stept inside. ' He was a cheery-face- old man, And with apologies began For calling, and then let him know That more than fifty years ago, Whon ho was in his youthful bloom, He'd occupied that very room ; So thought he'd tuke tho chance, he said, To see the changes time had made. "The same old window, same old view "Ha, ha I the same old pictures, too! " And then he tapped them with his cane And laughed his merry laugh again. "The same old sofa, I declare! Dear me, it must be worse for wear. The same old shelves! " Anil then he came And spied the closet door. ' T ie same Oh my " A woman's dress peeped through. Quick as he could ho closed it to. He shook his head. "Ah ah the same Old game, young man, the same old game !" "Would you my reputation slur! " The youth gasped: -- That's my sister, sir!" "Ah " said the old man, with n sigh, "The same old lie the same old lie; " George iilrdseye. VOICES OF THE STREET. A plump little woman, in a calico dress and a look of determination, startled the vision of the gentlemau who glues his other eye to a hole la the door of a well frequented down-tow- gambling hall and ' sizes up" the prospective individual who is desirous of twisting the tiger's tail, before allowing htm to pass into tho precinct of the chip and the case. When the eye rested upon the look of determination and tho woman, it im-mediately disappeared and a small sliding panel shot across the erstwhile aperture. She wasn't a very tallfemale, and she wasn't particularly heavy, but she sat each foot down with the force of an agitated pile driver and the rafters creaked as she strode along the hall-way. She grasped the door knob and shook it violently, at the same time grinding out between her teeth: "Let mo in!" No response was made, but the low, determined growl of the monarch of the jungle was plainly audible. The woman put her shoulder, which also had an iptenso look of determina-tion, to the door and said: "If you don't open this here door, I'll break it in," at the same time giving it a shoulder-shov- e that loosened its hin-ges and impaired its utility. The panel slid back and the eye re-appeared. A voice, which evidently was closely connected to the eye grullly said: veu, wnai (r you want? "I want my husband." "He aint in here," returned the voice. "Go 'way!" "Yes ho is in there, for I saw him come up and I'll not go away, and if you don't open this door and produce my husband I'll make it mighty hot for you," eaid the woman without tak-ing a breath or moving an eyebrow. . "What's his name?" tTho delinquent's name was given and a tour of the hall taken in search of him. Ho was there. And a more sheepish look never in-habited a man's complexion than the one which rested upon his face. "Now, look here, Mary" he began, half apologetically, as they started down the stairs, "Don't you dare 'Mary,' me" she snap-ped with a bear-tra- spring of her jaws. "I'll see that your wages don't go to them there gamblers no more when we've got children at home to support and bring up, and don't you forget that, either. You just turn over your week's wages to mo, John." And John unburdoned his pockets into Mary's outstretched hand. As they faded from sight in the distance tho gentleman, who uses but one of his eyes for all practical purposes, ejected a prolonged whistle from himself and said something or other which would look better somo wheres else other than In print. But it sounded considerably like "Well, I'll be jammed." Some of these times the avenging angel will grind up her sword and in-augurate an insurrection of her own to the discomfiture of that perfuctly use-less nonentity, the foolklller. ' If sho consults my wishes in tho mat-ter, I will advise her to begin at the fountain head though hydrant head would be more appropriate of g mortals, tiy which I mean the portion of humany which spends its leisure time during the week gloating over a hair cut and shave Saturday night when the barber shop is tilled with waiting customers. I sat in a tonsorial emporium last Saturday with several other good citi-zens, waiting for six men, who do not smoke cigarettes, and who should con-sequentially know better, to have their hair cut. One of them even went so far us to have his whiskers trimmed, while another took a sea foam. As I do not pwear very often I sat there in the barber shop aud thought of all the horrible deaths imaginable, and reveled in delicious murders and abrupt killings and suicides and holocausts and lires and casualties and blood and murder and thunder, and wondered why it was some men escaped them all to get a hair cut on Saturday nights, when the barber shop was full of tired, disgusted humanity waiting to be shaved. Thero is a cheap piece of humanity who should be given a bath in the crater of Vesuvius." He belongs to the hog family and spends his remnant mo-ments while riding upon the street cars by spitting upon the carpet and staring at the lady upon the opposite seat. What a bundle of idiosyncracies the shabby individual is! Wl'iat elongated methods of preserving his appearance ho will attempt! He is visible to the eyo upon the streets every day. In fact, Salt Lake has lots of him. ' He usually wears a plug hat, a frock coat and a flannel shirt. He dines on bam nnd eggs in a restaurant and sedulously picks his teeth on the curb before the Walker house. The ensanguined-liue- d blazer has been called in. Tho eflimato sash is disappearing from tho streets. ' The straw hat oh! whero but it is gone. Tho footpad and brainless cigarette alone remain as reminders of the darker shades of life. An appropriate reminder to the Salt Lake polieo forco: "Move on!" ??????? Do Salt Lake girls wear such short dresses? Do married women expose so much neck on the streets? Do not the police keep the sidewalks cloar? Do bankers pay 15 cents for a shave and salaried clerks 25? . Do old maids walk without their knoes? bending Do "scabs" and "rats" walk upright the same as men? Cklbe Clare. A'tmtucTrtl. T.TJONES & CO,, Bankers, 161 MAIN STREET. BOYS ORES AND BULLION. lUol.

Bear in mind that first class marble for statuary purposes meets a quick sale in New York and in all eastern cities at $22 to $'5 per cubic foot weighing 170 pounds. Utah, which in addition to her treas-ure of gold and silver, supplies so many varieties of useful and unique minerals; furnishes surface evidence that among her prolilie mineral treasures she will in the near future supply the markets of this continent with white statuary marble in massive and porfect cubes suitable for collossal forms of beauty. Statuary marble taken from the sur-face of workings near Nephi in this territory, when aclual'y compared with Italian in thcjmarble yards in New York and other cities in eastern and south-western states, has, without exception, been declared by dealers and compe-tent judges, superior in grain and whiteness to the imported article Owing to the "action upon it of atmos-pheric forces, the outcrop may be lino marble, but its exposure will have made it unsound." This is true of the Neplii marble, and although it improves as the surface is removed, tho present depth of development, (not to exceed thirty feet), furnishes only material for building rock, limo and cement of ex-cellent quality. "The superior excel-lence of marble as a building stone consists in its strength and durability, its resistance to heat, and its of water.' In a series of tests of building stones undertaken in tho interests of the busi-ness, in culling found that sevon varie-ties of marble, including all these com-monly used for building purposes, are uninjured at 800 degrees. Of these, three are uninjured until the heat is sufficient to change them into quick-lime, which heat must exceed 1200 and be continuous for somo time." Lime made of this white marble is ab-solutely pure, perfectly while and strong and hardens under water. With a proper admixture of chemical sub-stances, plentiful in most localities, cement equal to that imported could be manufactured from it. It is needless to say that as a flux in smelting ores it is unsurpassed, containing, according to the analysis of the manager of the llannauer furnace, 01) per cent of car-bonate of lime. It is fair to presume that in tho good time coming, when all the home capi-talists great and small, are busy in swapping jack-knive- s and organizing banks, some level-heade- d business men from among tho outside' barbarians, will come along and snap up this mar-ble deposit and make the solitudes of Juab hum with the throb of engines, the rasping of rock saws and the songs of hundreds of skilful operatives. Tho mountains round about this Smithsonian Zion hold within , their rocky ribs all the elements of material prosperity; lot us hope that some out-side Moses at the head of the combined forces of labor and capital, will smito the rock and causo to flow tho healing waters of legitimate enterprise and wealth. TUB FUTUKE OF UTAH MAU11I.E. In the Century magazine for tho pres-ent month may be found an illustrated article on marble as found in tho Ver-mont quarries. A description of the marble found in the West-Rutlan- vein illustrates the statement mado in the encyclopedia that "pure white marble in marketable quantities is rarely found." Hitherto 'Italy has furnished the largest supply of white statuary marble for the markets of tho world. But it is conceded that the Italian arti-- ' cle is deteriorating. Secretary of War Proctor, who has been very successful in his investments in quarrying and manufacturing marble, says of the Ital- - ian in comparison with Vermont white marble: "I think the best of it is bet-ter for statuary that is to be kept .with-in doors, becauso it is a little harder and can be cut to finer lines; but though harder than tho Rutland while marble, for some cause not yet fully understood, no Italian marble will stnd exposure to the weather in any climate as well as the American. Tho Italian is about as hard as tho Sutherland Falls, which is none of it white. Our layers of white marble are growing harder as we go into the earth." And here it may be said that these layers and stratas are defective in that they aro not found in strata thicker- - than fifteen inches, whereas, to meet the average demand, a thickness of from twelve to thirty-si- x inches is needed. The article in the Century gives twelve distinct layers in the Vermont marble pits which have been opened to a depth of forty-seve- n feet. Of these only the fourth from the surface is rated as "white statuary" and this is limited to three feet in thick-ness in the "Report on the Geology of Vermont." Thus it will be seen that so far as white statuary marble is concerned, tho Vermont quarries with their narrow belts and thin strata do not and cannot ARRIVALS AM) CLOSE OF MAILS.

Marriages of convenience, which have been a social bane in France, are said to be on the decline there. It is curious that there are no direct descendants of Napoleon, Wellington, Washington or Walter Scott. Apartment houses have been multi-plied to such an extent in New York that a decline in rents is imminent. One hundred swillons, by actual count, took up a night's lodging in n chimney at aycross, Ca., a few ni;li s ago. One police court in New York in three hours disposed of 120 cases an average of a minute and a half to each case. ' Crews from live different ves;ela at-tended prayer meeting on the decK of n mackerel schooner at Portland, Me., on Sunday. It is not gendrally known in fact, popular prejudice points the other way that the last carriage in a railway train is the safest. Locks were used by the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans ana Chinese. Du Cange mentioned locks aud padlacks as late as 1811. An oM chief gave his experience of Indian agents this way: "Spose agent heap bad man. heap swear, steal naif Injun blanket, Injun flour; spose agent lovum Jesus steal all." A woman at Bakerville, Mo., who has a son of twenty years, has not been "down-town- " but once in twelve years, and at that time she was taken there against her will. What an anomaly she is. Gone but once in twelve years! "Our next issue will be our last," writes a Georgia editor. "We are sat-isfied the people of this town can get along without us, for we have been get-ting along without tho people for six monins 'past, mere are some owing, hut we will not col-lect them, as the citizens will soon need the money to defray the funeral ex-penses of the town." Tho country people for miles around Danville, N. J., are arranging for a great double birthday celebration at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Heury Vree-lan- The two old people were born within one day of each other aud are now in the nineties. Thoy have been married sixty-thre- e years. Both are still hearty and active aud anticipate the approchiug anniversary glee day with much pleasure. The New York Tribune tells of a fastidious lady who drove to her butcher's and told that individual that whenever he or his assistants spoke to her through the telephone they must wash their hands and put on a coat. "It is highly indelicate," sho said, "for you to speak to a lady with unclean hands and in your shirt sleeves, and unless you ceas'e doing so I shall have to trade with the other butcher per-son." The Indians near Elk Rapids, Mich., cannot be persuaded to cross Bass Lake in winter or summer, and although it is full of the best fish they never cast in its waters. They have a legend that many moons ago, while fishing in the lake, one of their number was seized and borne beneath its dark waters by a great big, horrid monster, just like the one claimed to have been seen this sea-son by several parties. A Toocoa, Ga., man is totally blind, and has been so from a babe few weeks bid. Although he received no educa-tion he possesses unusual inteligence ana can solve difficult mathematical problems, giving the month and year which a person was born, tell tho day of t he week; can toll day from night by the atmosphere, and when traveling can tell when he is passing objectssomo distance from the roadsido, such as a house or tree. While plowing up the ground for the new Central shops at Columbus. Ga., one of the heavy plows struck a six-inc- h water main and broke it. The water spurted up in a solid stream to a height of about lilty feet, tearing up the ground around with great force. The water ran for several hours, flooding the ad-jacent spaee, until the superindent of the water works company went out aud, with assistance, repaired the break. Iowa has passed a stringent tramp law. It declares that any male person sixteen years of ago or over, who is physically aide to work, who is wander-ing about begging or idle and who can not show reasonable efforts to secure employment, shall be deemed a tramp t0 jiiil and put at hard work. While in jail ho shall uot be allowed to-bacco, liquors, sporting or illustrated newspapers, cards or any other means of amusement.- Tramps "will give Iowa a wide berth. On returning from church a Lafay- ette, da., limn saw what seemed to be two small snakes about the size of a load pencil and eight or ten inches long. 1 hev were barely moving. On closer examination instead of a snake it was a mass of litt le measuring worms, each about s of an inch long, and each traveling on the layer of worms under it. By moving in this manner they escaped the dust which would have been fatal to them if they had separated. Tim street car service may bo im-proving, but it will be difficult to con-vince tho man or woman who has to U'amp it home after sunset of the fact. Notwithstanding Shakespeare's sage advice, the Marquis of Lome is going to write a book. The returns from his enemies will come in later. The Intelligence that Salt Luke city has a tre tear strike la useful in letting people know that Salt Lake has street cars. Omaha World-Horal- How funny some papers can be if they try real hard, forsooth! The Chicago Herald corrects us re-garding Mrs. Fremont. It says sho has two sons, ono in the army and the other in the navy, drawing good salaries, and that tho lady cannot, therefore, be in destitute circumstances. Wo hope so. It now appears that Osman Pasba, who perished on board a Turkish man-of-wa- r last week, was not the hero of Plevna but quite another man, although the dispatches distiuctly mentioned him in that connection. The amendment is accepted. Judginu from the clearance record of the past week, the financial condition of the country is quite satisfactory, the increase over last year being 21.5 per cent, and excluding Jew York 15.8. Only eight places show a docrease. HAND OF'. Medical science has made wonderful progress within tho past fifty years in the discovory of remedies to relieve pain, and some of tho most astonishing performances in modern surgery are due to the application of anaesthetics which render the patient insensible to pain while under the knife of the opera-tor. Successful operations aro niado every day on injuries which prior to the use of chloroform were considered fatal, and the suffering in capital cases is not nearly so intense as it was in the most trivial cases in the good old days of yore. Thus it conies that, encouraged by past success, the world at large no less than the world of science looks for-ward to other discoveries in the same field with an unflagging interest and an almost divine hope. Within the last few years extensive experiments have been made, espec-ially in Paris, with hypnotism, that Is a kind of sleep or somnambulism pro-duced by moans of animal magnetism, and wo believe the ultimate result will bo bonelieial to mankind. As yet, however, the knowledge of its power for good or evil is but limited, and its use in the materia medica not war-ranted. Nevertheless so great is our anxiety to relieve the ills of this world we hear every day of tho use of hyp-notism by persons in every way incom-petent to administer It, and it behooves tho press to warn against the dangers incidont thereto. In New York the other day a young attorney who had for some time beon interested in the sub-joc- t, aud who had succeeded in placing a number of friouds undor his control at various times, thought to relievo his sister, who was ill and suffering from insomnia; but no sooner had he ren-dered her unconscious than ho lost his self control, llo wept and cried, thus adding every moment to tho danger his sister was in. A physician was oalled, and after live hours of unremitting work he succeeded in bringing the young lady to life, but with wrecked nerves. It will take months to undo tho effects of tho work of a few minutes. Hypnotism ns a nostrum is still in an embryo state, and as a toy for amateurs it is entirely too hazardous. It should be labeled "Hands off!" Tub funeral of the two New York lovers who committed suicide in a sen-sational manner last Thursday was held yesterday, and the account of it closes with the significant sentence: "No re-ligious ceremonies were hold." That may go a groat way in explainiug why tho oouple was so rash. When the World's Fair opons Port-land, O., should reserve space enough for its coroner. He refused to hold an inquest on the body of a citizon because there was no state of facts to warrant it. A coroner who would thus deliber-ately throw away his fee ought to bo exhibited as an object of curiosity in this country. The bill to rovivo tho grade of of tho army, which passed the senate last week, is likely to be put through the house this week if a quorum can be had to disposo of tho ponding election contest and proceed to other business. In case this is done tho president will nominate Major-Gener- Scholield to tho new ollice. Hope Npringa Eternal. Oifden Union. The Salt Lake Times says: "Og-deu'- s official population is 14,(U. Og. don no doubt feels proud of her in-crease." Of course we feel proud, but no more than we havo a right to. Now listen to tho doleful wail of the same Times and prepare yourselves to shed a few tears of sympatnetio laohry-luosil- y : "While a recount of the population of Salt Lake would disclose a few round thousands that were slurred by the census enumerators yet we accept the ret nrus with calm philoso-phy, Salt Lake oil y has no time to brood over the pastor prvsent, but keeps a steady weather eye upon the future. Teu years hence we ex-pect to double the Rain or one hundrei per cent made during the past decade." Ten years is a long time, brother, a very decade.
