A Deposit of Creat Depth On tho
Shore of a Nevada Lake.
Several months ago a correspondent of
the Baltimore Manufacturer's Record re-
ported that a mine of natural soap had been
discovered in Georgia and that the material
seemed well adapted to all ordinary pur-
poses. The statement waa received with
doubt. Now comes the Enterprise of Vir-
ginia City, Nevada, with an account of de-
l>osits of natural soap in that pocket-borough,
where soap is commonly supposed to be
rarely used for any other purpose than pur-
chasing seats in the senate of the United
States. The Enterprise says that one of the
several deposits known to exist has been
worked for three or four years. The soap
is sometimes made up into cakes as it comes
from the mine, but usually it is toned down
by admixture with artificial products. In
regions where soda, borax, and mineral oils
abound it is necessary to bringr these ingre-
dients together, and a soap mine is the re-
suit. Hot springs assist very materially in
uniting and concentrating the elements of
toap facture provided bv nature, and it is
observed that the soap found in the neigh-
borhood of such springs is usually harder
and more perfect tl an produced in the dry
way in and about the basins of extinct lakes.
The waters of Owens and Mono lakes are
thoroughly saturated with soda and borax
in solution that the addition of any oleagin-
ous matter produces soap. The latter lake
gives birth to vast swarms of grubs (which
in time become flies) that are washed ashore
and in some place, cover the. beach to the
depth of one or two feet. The oily matter
contained in these organisms, ^ujjiting with
the alkaline water of .the lake, forms a de-
posit of soap an inch or two in thickness
each year. Thus, in the course of ages, a
deposit of natural soap of great depth has
been built up on the east siae of the lake,
where the grubs have always stranded, ow-
ing to the prevalent winds blowing from the
It is difficult to understand tho attitude of
Germany towards the United States in the
Samoan affair upon any theory than that tho
German government ie not unwilling to pick
a quarrel with this republic. The courso
pursued by Germany in regard to Samoa is
defended by the North German Gazette
(Bismarck's organ) on the ground that no
existing treaty precludes any foreign power
from seeking to acquire ascendancy in those
islands, Whether a true statement or not,
this is a very frank announcement by Bis-
marck of his aggressive purposes in the Pa-
tiflc. Moreover, the Gazette asserts that
"no treaty regarding the neutrality or inde-
pendence of Samoa exists betweeen Ger-
many and tho United States"—and there-
fore Germany is privileged to ignore the
rights of the United States with reference
to Samoa and also a- treaty that obligates us
to help the Satnoans in time of trouble! It
looks like a challenge—such a challenge as
comes from one who really wants a row.
The treaty between Samoa and the United
States antedates tho treaties with other
powers. When this treaty was made, "we
pledged our faith as a nation," in the words
of Senator Frye, "to assist tne Samoans in
the event of any difficulty between them
and foreign powers." This fact is known
to Germany; and in view of it, the gruff
tone of the North Germam Gazette would
seem to be significant of anything but a
kindly feeling for the American govern-
ment. But it isn't necessary to conclude
that Germany would invite actual war; by
no means. Bismarck may simply wish to
create irritation and keep It alive, thus
throwing the United States into disfavor
among his people and stopping German em-
igration to America. Or ho may be playing
a big game of bluff, knowing that he has a
weakling to deal with in the state depart-
ment. If tho latter be tho true explanation
the Iron Chancellor may one of these morn-
ings wake up to a great surprise. Public
opinion in this country sometimes has much
to do with governmental policy; and bluff-
ing is a game two can play.—Cincinnati
The romantic spirit has ever arisen in
times when people were discontented with
Ihe then existing state of affairs. It pri-
marily manifests itself in its negative
character, in the spurning of what is living
and present, and the attempt at blinding the
eye to what is actual and in so far ungain-
ly, There is therefore always a touch
of unreality about the romantic. This
negative repulsion from the actual and
present also gives essential color to its
positive features, namely, in making what-
ever comes within its pale essentially dif-
ferent from what is habitually present in
the living. The romanticist thus looks up-
on the past because it is past and not pres-
ent, and upon the works of fancy because
they are fanciful and not real; but both
must have the power of carrying
him away from the oppressive reality to
Uhat which is different from it.
* Another essential attribute of the ro-
iEantic spirit is tho desiring attitude of
;aiind. Though the romanticist looks for
Uhe past because It is not past, and upon the
fanciful because it is not. real, he does not
itx>k upon them dip issionatcl.v, but longing-
ly, with the furtile desire, of which he is
half conscious, to make tnem present and
actual. And while, on the one hand, dis-
|x>rting himself in Rousseauesque nudity,
or wrapping himself closely in the sable
cloak of Wert her, he robs tho present and
actual of its vitality by means of nis mor-
bidly powerful imagination, on the other
hand, his desires have not diminished the
remoteness of the past and of the realms of
fantasy. Having shed over both the par-
ticular light natural to him personally in his
fervent longings, and having destroyed his
clearness of sight with regard to the pres-
ent, and disturbed its just proportion, lie
has not gained in the power of penetrating
into the past, which ho has also robbed of
its true consistency in emasculating his
f-nergy of dispassionate retrospection.—Dr.
Charles Waldstein, in Harper's Magazine
Railway Accidents in Great Britain.
The return just published by the board of
tnfde brings the tale of accidents and casu-
alties 011 railways up to the end of Septem-
l>er last and contains the statistics for the
first three quarters of the present year. In
that space of time there were 74 passengers
■killed and '.'S3 injured, a return which will
compare favorably with 100 killed
und 993 injured in the corresponding
jieriod of last year. The ser-
rants of companies or contractors
also suffered less in mortal, injuries, 275
-having been killed, as against 297; though
the otherwise injured amounted to 1<547,
which exceeds the number of the former
year by 43. Adding to these two classes the
other casualties, such as persons passing at
level crossings, trespassers, suicides and
others, we find the number of deaths wras
648. as against 672, and of slighter injuries
2,703, as. against 3,6i' l in the first' nine-
months of 18S 7. If accidents occurring-ott
the premises of railway companies, though
not occasioned by railway vehicles, be added
to the above, the total number of accidents
reported to the board of trade during the
nine months amounted to 654 killed and 6,-
086 injured.—London Times.

cruise. It is forty feet long by fourteen
feet beam and is of sloop model with flat
bottom. Its draught will be only about two
feet, so that it can be taken up the shallow-

no propelling apparatus, as Mr, Lorillard
will have the Keva to tow it. Tne main
deck is housed in. Within the enclosure
there are stalls aft for four horses and |
cabin accommodations forward for three

The proposition to transfer the signa
service from the war department to th«
agricultural bureau, happily for a lar-#
number of patient meteorological detective
in the government service, does not mee4
with very much favor among congressmen
And it is well that it does not.
There is no question but that proper dis
cipline can be better maintained under thf
regulations of the war department than ii
the agricultural bureau, and as the value o'
weather reports depends upon their accu
racy and upon constant watchfulness by th«
observers, the necessity of strict discipline
is apparent. A transfer of the signal serv-
ice to the agricultural bureau would for this
reason alone be a mistake; for as at present
constituted and governed the service is more
free from political meddling than if the ob-
servers were simply employes of the agri-
The propose I change would also be an act
of injustice to the patient sismal sergeants
who are looking forward not only to an in-
crease of pay according to the longevity rule,
but over and beyond ti.at to the limit of ser-
vice at which l-etirement can be embraced
on three-fourths of the maximum pay. Sig-
nal sergeants when they enter the service
receive a year. This is increased by
the longevity rule every five years—at the
end of each term of enlistment—until f 1.200
is reached at the twenty-fifth year of service.
This salary includes 'commutc-d allowance
for rations, quarters and fuel. But every
five years the sergeants receive $300, which
represents retained pay and clothing allow-
ance for the time stated. Sergeants are en-
titled to medical attendance for themselves,
and whenever the service of an army or
contract surgeon can be had they can secure
for their families the attendance of such
surgeon. At the completion of thirty years
of service the sergeants are entitled to re-
tirement on three quarters of the maximum
The pay of a sigrnal sergeant is insufficient,
and should be raised. This is generally
recognized by those in authority, but effort
is always defeated through jealousy in the
army as to rank. There seems, for this
reason, to be little hope that a just increase
in the salaries of signal officers will soon be
There are now in the signal service a
number of men who have done faithful
service for over twenty-five years. There
are others who have served over twenty
years. To take from these men the reward
of retirement on $000 a year which is almost
within their grasp would be gross injustice.
The signal service should bo permitted to
remain where it now is.—Milwaukee Wis-

The American Poet.
Have we a poet in America great enough
tobe ranked with England's worthiest, to
stand in the same rank as Chaucer, Spenser,
Shakspeare, Milton, Dryden, Pope, Keats,
Shelley, Scott and Burns? Edmund Gosse
recently asked this question of himself and
replied in the negative. He qualified his
answer by saying that we had no dead poets
to stand with the immortals of Britain,
Longfellow, Bryant and Poe are thus mado
V) take a secondary place. Of course, Eng-
lish lovers of these poets will be the first to
raise their voices in protest against such an
arrangement. Mr. Gosse's obinion may be
honest, but the overwneiming eliorus of
those who have been soot hed by Longfellow's
sweetness and tender beauty, of those who
have followed the swing of Bryant's verse
as the tides follow the attraction of the
moon, aud of those who have feh the strange,
wild, weird loneliness of Poe's wandering
fancy, will drown his voice. And if this
English scholar and Critic had spoken of
living poets, would he not have assigned
Whittier a p'ace among the first, the most
American of ail American poetsí His notes
are pure like those of.a native wood bird,
and wanderings among foreign literatures
have never given au accent fo his song. Ho
has never been out of this country: in tact
he has never been farther away from New
England than to Philadelphia, and bis in-
spiration has always been at home. "Snow
Bound'' is our native idyl, or perhaps our
native pastoral, and it is worthy to rank
with the* best of English poetry, while in
his later songs Whittier has most tenderly
interpreted the beauty of our Northern land
and has thrown the mystic veil of poetry
around the daily lives of our people.—Cin-

visit, and while there was invited to
preach in a negro church. As the Sab-
bath approached it occurred to him
that it might be a good idea to ask the
advice of the colored pastor as to the
subject of discourse most likely to in-
