THE NEVADA DESERTS. Government Expert Discover That Tliey Can Be Reclaimed In Large Part by Irrigation. The irrigation possibilities of the arid west, especially that part of it included in the great interior basin, once called the great American desert, are daily becoming more apparent.

A more detailed study is being made of the amount of water each watershed will furnish, especially those on which there are good reservoir sites, and the losses of water from each. Under the direction of Mr. L. H. Taylor, resident hydrographer of the geological survey at Reno, Nev., 13 new stream gaging stations have been established in Nevada and eastern California. Three of these are on Walker river and branches, one on Carson river, six on Tru...

In a letter to Admiral Hollman, councilor of the German Oriental society, the kaiser says he regrets that Prof. Delltzsch made a grave mistake in approaching the question of Revelation in a polemical spirit, more or less denying the Revelation, and even professing to be able to trace it back to a historical and purely a human source. The emperor sets forth the following conclusions: "I believe in the one and only God. We may need a form in order to teach his existence, especially for our children. This has hitherto been the Old Testament. The present version of this will be possibly and substantially modified under the influence of research through inscriptions and excavations. That does not matter. Neither does it matter that much of the nimbus of the chosen people will...
