A NOBLE LABORER'S LAST WILL. the last will ol Taikel Albert son, or Aske. who died in Stavnger about 25 vears at;o, came the needy in that citv to good account, when 35,000-crow-were distributed for various ben-evolent purposes. At his death he left but a few thousand crowns, and these he had saved Irom his hard earned wages as a common laborer. ' By his last will, this amount had drawn interest, and during a qnaiter of a century, had swelled to the large sum oi money, that by this noble disposition will long keep his name in rememberance in Ibe Com-munity where he lived, labored and saved for the benefit o4 others. , ;( I.

This natural principle is applied by skillfully consiructed machin-ery at any level, by the vacuum process. This not only greatly facilitates manufact-ure, but really produces a superiorarti-cle- .

This shows the relative superiority of the new method. Perhaps the ice freeiing' machine is the most unique and interesting,-sinc- e no chemicals are necessary, and the fieezing is done by the same vacuum process. The preparations now being made will give New Yoik cubes of ice eight by e ght feet, and thirty feet long, frozen to order on the hottest days. The estimated cost of producing it is fitty cents per ton. He also has a machine of immense capacity for the manufacture of cream of tartar (fiom the lees of wine), of a very superior quality. Mr. Patten, Sen., says: " 1 was at New Jetsey to see one i.f the cream of lartar machines put in operation. In two hours it had completed a run, which had formerly occupied eighty hours." The machine for Uie manufacuie of glycerine is a marvel of speed and ac-curacy. The element of which glycerine is made is thrown off in the manufacture of soap, and is about five percent of the whole. It will not enter into the com-position of soap, and has heretofore been pouted into the gutter. Three of these machines are at work, and in a run of four or five davs turn ,out a batch if from 15,000 to 20.000 Us each, and this it must be remembered is clear profit, or saved from what was before A waste.- - '' ' I dj not feel tba.t I have done this subject Justice, but will say in conclusion that John Patte,n is a Utah boy, a Manti boy, and we are all proud of him, and his father not the least.

There is no state in which irriiration a more needed than in Kevada, and there is do state in which it would show more important results.
