Porto itis of is said to lie tii health lest of the West indies. Ii a a a Little South of Cuba and is a Little warmer fourteen years ago three men prospecting for Silver mistaking certain colors in the to is. Began sinking a Shaft. At fifteen feet it Xmas disagreeable cold at Twenty feet the cold had increased so rapidly that they were thoroughly frightened. They could feel currents of a old nor Rushing tip from the crevices in the Rock. They imagined they were digging into some mysterious underground Cavern. They of wonderful adventures of digging into cares and underground lakes and being atone in this wilderness where the very stillness permitted the ears to hear and the mind to imagine All Maimer of gruesome Powers hid beneath the Rock so thoroughly filled them with fear of impending danger that they abandoned the work Xiv High has since gained such renown. The summits of Little Wolf mountains Are covered with scoria which has All the appear an quote and texture of a Good Grade of tilling. It is usually red. But varies in color through All the shades Down to Black. These varying colors give the Beautiful tint to the thousands of Buttes throughout the Bud lands. In comparatively recent geological times vast it eds of ignite Coal Xiv Ere formed Over the Eastern half of Montana extending into Western Dakota. The burning of these lies of Coal was the beginning of the bad lain formation. The Fine deposits of Clay at Ove the Coal was burned As Brick Are burned in a Kiln and formed the scoria. Where the heat was greater and Rock and Sand were present it melted and mixed with the Eoa and Coal Ash. Forming Large cinder like rocks which Are sometimes taken for lava. As the Coal burned out from beneath the Clay now baked into scoria and melted into cinders it broke into Small divisions and fell promiscuously Down into the pits thus formed. Vou a a aide Ash is found scattered Oxer the Little Wolf mountains and the East Era a my Tion of Montana. It must have drifted a Villi the wind from powerful eruptions in the Rocky mountains As there Are no indications of any volcanic action in the Vicinity of the ice Well. The Little Wolf mountains Are merely a rough Range of Buttes apparently of the same origin As All the bad land Butte. Their summits towering above All the other Buttes have Given them the name of mountains but they Are Only of slightly Over 4,000 feet Altitude. If ire were to be put into the Well during the Winter it would keep throughout the summer nearly As Well As if stored away in Ordinary icehouse. By Chance nature has forme almost the identical conditions that Man has made use of to preserve ice throughout the hot weather. The Shaft is the cavity in which to store the ice the volcanic Ash filling into the Tjien space Between the loosely plied Rock serves the purpose of sawdust in keeping out the warm draughts of air the Altitude and the North slope Are favourable to the preservation of the ice tall dense forests prevents the heating of the surface Rook by the direct rays of the Sun the rocks Are too porous for the water to soak up. So to speak from beneath the facts Are that in Many place near the tops of the Buttes on the sides where the a cd a have fallen loosely together they Are perfectly dry for in any feet below the surface being moistened by the Winter Snow and rain As it May fall and run a town from above. During the Winter the Well is nearly filled Vith Snow enough water from the Early Spring Rains finds its Way the Trade wind is Here from nearly East with a slight Bead from the North through Between to rocks to mix with the result is. As in Jamaica that the i to a Snow null freeze into one solid the american Wool Ami Cotton reporter present a Semi annual statement of the new textile Mill construction in the unit states which shows that during the last six months. 1<�7 new textile Milis were construct or projected against 155 for the first half of 1.808, and 08 for the last six months of 1807. For the entire year the new and projected Mills number 202, against 155 for the year 1807. 4�f the 107 Mills. 78 have Lwen or Are to be devoted to the manufacture of Cotton. 11 to Woolen 14 to knit goods hosiery Etc., Aud 4 to miscellaneous purposes such As silk manufacturing carpet manufacturing. To from this it would appear that textile Mil construction in the suited states is once More fairly started on the up Grade. If the Mills mentioned. 14 Are located in Northern states. 81� in Southern states and the balance in Northeast Angle is by far the wet tel and the Northern slope is decidedly Wetter than the Southern or Oarr beat one. Indeed the Southern Sioum is so dry that irrigation is new ded in som places and it is very imperfectly used mass of ice. The ice in the Well is forme by the cold of the Winter season. But Dot is not la Egin to form sometimes till the Winter is half gone. In turn it is melted by the heat of the summer but it does not begin to the Island is More subject to Hurri tacit until the summer is half Over in canes than is Cuba. It lies near the customary path of their centres. Whip to Uba is far to the West of the usual path. The Rainy season in Porto Rice is in late summer and in autumn. In Cuba it is in Early summer and in autumn Vith a Short dry season in tween. This has disappeared in Portr Rico and there is Only one Rainy sea son there As in Florida. In our present civilization the distinctions that men have made for themselves differentiate men More almost than they Are differentiated from the animals.

Hand in hand with the Public school so is taking Mankind to a higher and an even higher level of life. The Mas that run a trolley at ten the police at Shanghai.

Some of these Are englishmen others Are chinese who have i it Een trained to Deal firmly with the great coolie class which throngs in All parts of Shanghai anti there Are besides the sikh Indiee chosen men i from the in Una Publ regiments who i patrol the City and its lonely outskirts on horseback.

Henry j Decker a Well to do Man about town in san Francisco recently made a bet that begging As a profession pays. To prove it he went out for an hour with a hand Organ and returned with $4.50. The Kentucky Board of health has refused to Sanction the practice of of Teo Patby in that state. The Early part of the summer it is still freezing in the Well and during the first half of the Winter it is still melting. The Well acts As a refrigerator. It receives the heat slowly Aud then gives it off just As slowly. If the Earth received and gave off heat rapidly the hottest weather would be in june and the coldest in december in fact the eat on follow a nearly a month behind the Sun. The conditions surrounding the ice Well cause it to follow a the seasons from six to eight a weeks later. Those i siting the Well during the first half it of the Winter find water and those visiting during the Early summer find it a till freezing even finding Small icicles forming As the water coming from above drips Over the rocks on the a ides Down near the ice. It is a fact that if of a hot Day you walk rapidly into the Cave to where the ice is. It Fels As though a Strong ror Reut of cold air were blowing the sensation is a i decidedly real that it requires careful demonstration to prove to the contrary Ami even it almost seems As though the demonstration has been a mistake. It can be easily tested by using smoke or. Better still a rather heavy coloured Glass. Again if one should stand without the Entrance to the Cave on a very warm Day near enough to feel any draught that May be stirring none can be Felt coining from the Cave. If one should stand directly above the ice Well on a hot still Day even putting the face Down to the very Jiening into the Well no upward draught of Cool air can be Felt but go Down into the Well and one would state positively that there was an upward draught of extremely cold air
