Probably one of the meat dis&i trous that was ever known, occurred in Rochester, N. Y., about twenty years ago. The Genesee river, lust above the fails, whew Sam Patch made his final and fatal Uv\\ be* came completely blockaded by ice, ruing an impassible dam, and the water txming down the Genesee river overflowed the principal portion of the city of Rochester. This catastrophe would have been repeated the present year had not the energy and fore- sight of the city authorities prevented it The writer happened to be in Rochester at that time, and was greatly Interested in tibe manner in which this great catastrophe was averted. Every few moments a roar like the peals of thunder or the booming of cannon would be heard, and in order to see this ice blasting process, the writer went to the top of the new Warner building, which overlooks the Genesee river. From here he was not only enabled to see the process uninterruptedly, but also the magnifi- cent building which has just been completed. This is unquestionably the finest building de- voted to business and manufacturing purpo- ses in America, being entirely fireproof, eight stories high, and wntaining over four and a quarter acres of flooring.

The chief external characteristic of the French Basques is the extraordinary skill with which they walk on stilts. * This hereditary accomplishment has been forced upon them, so to speak, by the nature of the country they inhabit—a waste of shifting sands, intersected by runlets of water that produce admirable pasturage, but in places occasion very dangerous morasses. The Basques, used from infancy to make their way through drift and quagmire, seem sometimes to be actually unaware that they are perched up aloft, like so many storks or herons, as they tend their sheep or carry home their oat-sheaves. And the women are, perhaps, still defter on their stilts than are the men, who invariably cast off their wooden props when cudgel play, \or a or less, the pain and indisposition, the head- aches, colds, neuralgia, rheumatism, dull pains, sore throats, coughs—all the 1,001 ilia that flesh is heir to come this time of the year, if at all.

Has the Earth a Ring? There are all kinds of rings in the business and political world, but the greatest ring of all, says Demore&t, is the one which some astronomers say is form- ing outside the atmosphere of the earth. There are people who gravely maintain that the extraordinary sunsets and sun- rises which have beea^oMced for months are due to the formation of a ring or rings around our earth, similar to those revealed with the telescope encircling the planet Saturn. No scientist of note has dared, »o yety ta seriously consider this theory, but these sunsets are, never- theless, as great a mystery as ever.

We afterward knew that they had been watching us some days and were simply waiting for the most favorable opportunity to make the attack, having evidently planned to kill Howard first, and then come back along the line pick- \n*r off the rest of the party one by one.

This unlooked-for disaster completely demoralized them, and they fled in all directions. Within three minutes not an Indian was in sight. He turned his attention to his horse, loosened the girth to take off the saddle, and was surprised when the animal drew a deep bre; .irpnsec ;ath an. td struggled to his feet. He then led him slowly to where the rest of the party had made a stand about their wagon, and as he approached from one direction I came limping up from the other, with a bullet in my right leg. The Indians had paid their general attentions to the rest of us during the time Howard was having his fight, but fortunately not in force, and we succeeded in getting to- gether .at the wagon without the loss of a man, I being the only one wounded ia the whole engagement. As soon as Howard joined us we started on the retreat for camp, the In- dians harassing us the whole waj*. They would form in single file or all abreast, and charge as though they were going to ride right over us, but on getting within short range would wheel and retire,,after discharging a volley of shots that would tear up the earth all around us.
