Major PoweU, whose description of
the canyons of Colorado are so interest
ing . and so eloquently told, tells as of a
passage through one of those terrible
flows in his boats, aa follows:
About eleven o'clock we heard' a great
roar ahead, and approached it very can
tiously, the sound growing louder and
louder as we ran. At last we found our
ftlres abore a long, broien fall, with
ledges and pinnacles of rock obstructing
the river. There was a descent of
seventy-five or eightj feet, perhaps, in a
third of a mile, and the rushing waters

rocks, and lashed themselves into foam.
We could land just above, but there was
no foothold on either side by which
portage could be made. It was nearly a
thousand feet to the top of the granite,
so it was impossible to carry our boats
around, though we could climb to that
point ourselves by a side gulch, and
passing along a mile or two, could de
scend to the rirer. "We discovered this
ou examination, but such a portage
would hare been impracticable for us,
aad we were obliged to run the rapid or
abandon the river.
V'e did not hesitate, but stepped into
the boats, pushed off, and dashed away,
first on smooth but swift water, then
striking a glassy wave and riding to its
top, down again into tne trougn, up
again on a urxiit wave, anu clown ana
up on the waves, higher and still higher,
until we struck one just as it curled.

the boat was caught in a whirlpool and

As an item of interest in the farming
line, says the Pittsfield (Illinois), Demo
crat, we give the following of what has
happened to us as a farmer. Three
years ago we had twenty acres in wheat
that we seeded to clover, getting a fair
stand of the latter. . Last year and the
season previous we pastured the clover.
Unfortunately, last season we were
obliged to use our pasture too late, and
the consequence was our clover drew out
and froze out in the winter, and this
spring the crop was entirely gone. We
determined, having more ground for
plowing than we could use, to let it lie,
grow up to weeds, and what clover might
come, turn it under early and reseed to
wheat and clover, thus losing ; one year's
use of the ground. Instead,, however,
of growing up to weeds, there came up
as full a crop of cheat as if it had been
regularly sown to cheat, and we have
just finished mowing and stacking it,
and now have in stack j over twenty tons
of almost entirely pure cheat. We cut
it green, and it consequently did not
shatter out, and made the heaviest hay
we have handled for many a year.
There is a small quantity of clover with
it, but no weeds, and our ground is as
well seeded to clover as we could desire.
And now about the cheat. We can
readily understand how the seed could
iio iu tho ground and germinate under
favorable circumstances, but the quantity
tliat thus lay there for three years, and
tb m grew, surprises us. Be it as it may,
r wo have got the crop, have not lost the
year's use of the ground, and the field is
nicely seeded to clover better, in fact,
.than it was at first

second, the extent of coast to be defend
ed and the exposed condition of the sea
board cities; third, the relations of the
country with the other powers of the
world, and the advancement continually
made in the ynTv cf maritime war;
fourth, to look deficiencies in the face.
and, at whatever cost, place the navy in
condition to meet any emergency.
This is not he case with our own navy
at present. TVhen its condition is fully
considered it would be the height of
folly to call it " efSdent for, while that
delusion lasts, no supplies will be given
by Congress, and we will grow yearly
more inferior to other powers. War is
at all times a dreadful alternative; still
more so when farced upon a nation so
utterly unprepared as we are at present.
I speak strongly on the subject, because
I know the real condition of tne nary
and its present inability to meet the
wants of the nation, and may yet live to
see my country humiliated from the fact
that no attention has been paid to the

proper term to apply to the operations
of a non-aggressive nation that does not
require a navy with which to wage aggres

not as we once did, set them the example
in the quality of our ships and guns.
We have never had a settled policy with

If the sleeve is the demi-long antique
shape, a sharp armor-like puff, pressed
outward in the middle, is made of lace
or of crepe lisse, and passed around the
elbow; below this is a band of the drees
material, with a frill of the lace used for
garniture, and this brings the sleeve al
most to the wrist. Short sleeves are a
single puff of the diaphanous fabric used
for irimming, or else they are longer
than formerly, and have the band and
frill of laoe added, which make them
reach almost to the elbow. The heavier

The three-quarter train is preferred

than the demi-train of carriage costumes,
but far shorter than the extravagant

skirt almost plain over the tournure; the
effect is not good, and the innovation
will hardly become popular. Far more
graceful are. the plaited trains, showing
a deep Wattean fold in a quadruple box
plait from the waist to the' floor.
