NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Bt. Louis Christians are being
brought to a realization of the terrible inconsistency of patronizing
Sunday newspapers. — St. Louis
Critic.
.The free-railroad-pass abuse has
obtained such a hold on the Ohio
legislature that tho house chaplain
felt called upon to pray recently :
"O, Lord, teaoh those members to
remember and to know that there
are no free passes to heaven."
Dr. McGlynn, the recalcitrant
priest, wants to know why Prince
Rudolf, the suicide, waa buried with
aU the honors of the Ohuroh while
burial in consecrated ground was
refused to John McGuire, a working-
man, who died at an anti-poverty
meeting.
A gentleman, addressing the
the soholars of a large school, observed nmon{{ tho decorations about the
room au American flag, and said :
"Children, can any of you tell me
why that flag was'hung there 1" "To
hide the dirt," quickly responded one
sharp boy who had assisted in making the preparations for the occasion.

A curious event lately occurred
in Oaliforniu. A tree on n mountain,
in Alpine County, Cal., was struck
by lightning during a thunderstorm.
The fluid followed the trunk into
the ground, and immediately there
burst forth a brilliant fire whioh has
continued to burn ever since. It is
belioved thn lightning ignited a bed
of coal, which is now feeding the
flame.
The swell families of New York
Beera to be going to bring again into
fashion the short and black silk hose
of their forefathers, before, during,
and even after the Revolution. At
the most brilliant ball of the season
so far in New York a half dozen of
gentlemen wero thus arrayed, and
Mrs. Cornelius Yanderbilt has asked
the same gentlemen to bedeck themselves in the same garb for her next
dancing party.
Tho following is a rather good
illustration for the "equal division
of property" fellows: "I say,
Sprigstein, 1 don't hear you howling
round so muoh now about anarchy,
socialism, division of property, and
all them modern inventions. What'i
come ovor you 1—didn't it pay 1"

Says the Mail: A close reader
of tlie trade and navigation returns
for 1838 might gather therefrom
that tlio gay and festive whale and
other monsters of the deep disport
themselves in the waters of Lakes
Winnipeg and Manitoba. Among
the exports from Manitoba are mentioned, 8,820 gallons of whale oil
and many "skins of marine animals."
It seems, however, that the trade
returns from York Factory, on Hudson's Bay, are included in those sent
to Ottawa from Winnipeg, though
the blue-book makes no mention of
the fact. The lakes mentioned are
well stocked with fish, but they
contain no whales.
The empire of Japan, on the 11th
inst., took unto itself a constitution,
being the first Asiatic nation to
adopt constitutional government.
This step is said to be the result of
Count Ito's study for several yeara
past of the political institutions of
Europe and America, and it is only
one of many proofs that Japan is
fully alive to the advantages of
western civilization. Although formally promulgated on the date above,
the now constitution will not go into
practical effect until the opening of
the parliament next year. This
body will consist of two houses, one
composed of tbo representatives of
the people, elected by them, and the
other containing the hereditary
lords of the empire. Western
nations will watch with interest for
the fruits of this transplanting of
their political institutions in untried
eastern soil.
The Montreal Witnett justly says :
The London Timet has sneaked
out bf Mt. Parnell's Scotch suit in
the meanest way possible. It has
certainly libelled Mr. Parnell persistently nnd destructively. Ub only
plea is justification, and on that plea
it has made a great show of patriotic
courage for having taken the risks
of publicy accusing many notable
men of treuson and the basest crimes.
Yet when Mr. Parnell enters his
action, according to the best legal
advice he can obtain, against the
most responsible and at that time the
generally supposed sole proprietor of
the Timet, that gentleman enters the
plea that he is not the proprietor,
only a stock holder, and the oourt
dismisses Mr. Parnell's suit with
probably enormouB costs and expense
In Canada, and we suppose in all
countries, whoever publishes a paper
has to register himself as a responsible publisher and also to print his
name aS such publisher in every
issue, so thnt there may be no mistake as to where to look for redress,
in case any one feels himself injured.
The time is surely past in England
for anonymous libels, whether at the
hands of the leading paper or of the
most scurrilous organ of the slums.
RECIFKOUITY DEFEATED.

venture station admit an accident occurred near Beloeil Bridge, 2 miles
west of the city of St. Hyacinthe.

smash-up is evidently a big one, but

injured.

London, 19.—Prince Bismarck is
very much annoyed at the talked of
marriage of tho Cznmwitz to the
Princess Alexander of Hesse. There
seems little doubt, however, it will
come off. The difficulty of finding a
wife for the heir to all the Russias was
veiy great, ow___{-, to the change of religion such a marriage entails. The
marriage will tako place probably during the summer and it will be celebrated in St. Petersburg when the
bride is formally admitted into the
Orthodox Greek ohurch. The Princess Alice is nut bo beautiful as her
sister, the Grand Duchess Serge, but
is n very pleasant, graceful and bright
girl.
wanted a son.
The Crown Prince Rudolph was
never the same man after he had been
come a mother. He was feverish and
anxious to have a son. Probably the
depression from which he suffered after the long illness of the Arch Duchess
Stephanie was increased by the knowledge that his cousins, tho presumptive heirs, sons of the Archduke
Charles, aro wretched beings who inherit many uf the qualities of their
maternal grandfather, King Bomba, of
Naples. The crown prince rapidly degenerated, lost all literary and scientific tastes, plunged into intrigued of
the most disreputable and oontaminat-
iin. kind and took to drinking hard.
A head splitting mixture of champagne
and cognac was hii favorable tipple
during tho last yeafs of his life. He
rode when he was out hunting as if
mad or drunk and he finally became
thoroughly impressed with the idea
thero was a curse upon his race and
the madness in his blood was doomed
to end like hii cousin, the late king of
Bavaria. There had been frequent
violent quarrels between the crown
prince and* the princess of late and for
years past they had lived in incessant
squabbling and rarely met unless on
state occasions exoept for a battle. The
emperor hid become aware of the lamentable habits into which his son had
fallen. Only a few days before the
catastrophe he informed the crown
prince he wai to be aent to Searajens,
as governor of Bosnia, there to remain
in dreary exile until lie had seriously
applied himself, in the language of the
ecclesiastical court, to tho correction
and reformation of his manners and
excesses. The crown prince died
deeply in debt, although his income
was £150,000 a year aud his residences
wore kept up for him. Nobody can
discover whit he did with the money.
The apparent expenses of his living
were very moderate and there are
rumors that very large sums have been
paid in connection with his intrigues.
A lady who1 is well-known in Vienna
ii aaid to have received a million
florins (about £80,000) for her services
in facilitating certain matters.
bismarck's retirement.
An ingenious rumor was Bet afloat
last week that Count Waldersee will
succeed Prince Bismarck at an early
date. It is'not likely that Prince Bii-
mark's functions will ever pass entirely
to a single successor, but the rum' r
had aome color in the fact that Prince
Bismarck feels himself to benearing the
ond of his work and thnt his young
and imperious master now and then
chafes at the chancellor's authority. A significant little anecdote was
related in Berlin not very along ago,
The prinoe called at the palace and,
finding the emperor engaged, took advantage of hii old familiarity with the
house to make hii way to the nursery.
The imperial children asked him to
join in their romps. The veteran
statesman naturally preferred to play
them a dance tune on the piano. In
the midst of this pretty idyll enters
William II., and with something more
than a jmt he observed that the prince,
"not content with having made three
generations of Hohenzolferns dance to
hii tune he must needs begin to train
the fourth generation betimes."
Mr. Henry Marshall, Reeve of Dunn,
writes: "Some time ago I got a bottle of
Northropk Lyman's Vegetable Discovery from Mr. Harrison, and I consider it
the very best medicine extant for Dyspepsia."' This medioine is making marvellous cures in Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, etc., iu purifying the blood and

A PLEASANT VOYAGE.
London, Feb. 19.—The British man
of war Opal has returned to New Zealand. During her recent cruises she
bombarded a village on Pentecost Iiland, South Sea Islands, to punish an
offending tribe. At Port Sandwich
the French cruiser Falbert was found
at anchor. Sixty men from both vessels
landed at the-villain af Li On, the
island of Paama, and bombarded and
burned the village for the murder' ot
Europeans.
CAREW  ARRESTED.
London, Feb. 19.—J. L. Carew, M.P,
for North Kildare, was arrested today
in Perthshire, Scotland, on a warrant
issued under the Crimes Act.
PARNELL COMMISSION.
London, Feb. 19.—At the Parnell
commission session to-day MacDouald,
manager of the Times, was cross-examined by Sir Chas. Russel, the Parnellite counsel. In answer to a question, MacDonald said the alkged
Parnell letters had to be takon as a
whole, and as a whole they were compromising. The witness declined to
ansner one question and waa sharply
rebuked for his refusal by Presiding
Justice Hannen. MacDouald said he
avoided asking where the letters were
obtained from, as Secretary Houston
said he was bound to secrecy. Houston exhibited, confirming the. genuineness of the writing of the letter
which Parnell had written to Pitt.
This letter, however, was not given to
experts because it was of a confidential nature. The witness slid he forgot whether, when he gave Egan'i
letten to experts, he also submitted
other specimens of his writing. He
is not positive whether or not he po-
sessed any actual specimens of Egan'i
writing and could not remember what
material he had given the expert to
enable the latter to ascertain the genuineness of the letters. The witneu
said he was, however, convinced that
the Egan-Pamell lettets were genuine
before tho Times published the fint
article on ''Parnellism and Crime."
The witneu stated that be paid Houston £550 for Parnell's letter dated
June 16th, and for the Egan-Carney
letter he paid Houston a total sum of
£2,530. It is vaguely runiored the
Times wjill produce, a witness whow
teitimony will eclipse Lecaron.

himself further. O'Brien was sentenced to imprisonment for six monthi

A NOVEL CABINET.
Paris, Feb. 19.—It is rumored thii
ifternoon that President Carnot hai
given up the effort to form a cabinet
out of members of the chamber of
deputies, so that he will seek in the
senate for the material of a good buiineu ministry, chosen irrespective of
politics. It is noted that the president
all along has been in frequent consultation with M. Leroyer, president of
the senate. With his assistance a
working government might be established, regardless of the factional
divisions of the parties.
THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.
Lonoon, Feb. 18.—It ii now admitted by persons in the ministerial
confidence, that the queen's speech,
which will be read in parliament next
Thursday, will make especial reference
to the situation in Samoa, and recommend n conferenco between the accredited representatives of the interested governments fur the purpose of
settling the disputed question. Tho
chief clause of the speech, however,
will be one requesting parliament to
grant funds without delay to increase
tho efficacy of tlie navy. Admiral
Colomb has been selected as the mem-
bor to second the adoption of the address in reply to the speech from the
throne, and he will take the occasion
to impress upon the minds of his colleagues tho vital necessity for complying with her majesty's request immediately. One of the fint duties of
the ipeaker upon the reassembling of
the house will be to inform that body
of tho imprisonment of O'Brien ana
other Irish memben who have been
incarcerated during the recess. Thii
will be done ai usual, without any
comment on the part of the ipeaker,
but a lection of the liberals »ill,ncver*
theleu, endeavor to raise a debate on
the subject, during whioh Mr. Balfour
will be handled without gloves.

The report of the city council
proceodings in _i.iD-.hor column will
show that tho aldermen aro acting
energetically and in tho city's interests in thoso matters which thoy
hnvo passed upon so fur. Passing
over other matters, which will lio
found in the report, we must commend the spirit and tlio action of
the council with respect to the new
city park and the exhibition "rounds
and buildings. It will bo seen that
the §3,000 asked by the park committee has been appropriated by tho
council. In this action, we arc assured, the council will have the
cordial support of every citizen.
The park committee, consisting of
aldermen and citizens, with Aid.
Cunningnam as chairman, havo estimated, as will be seen elsewhere,
that necessary park and exhibition
improvements will require about
§9,500. Wo believe tho estimate is
moderate. The council have appropriated $3,000 of this. The provincial government may be expected
to grant at loast 8*3,000 more. This
would lonve about $5,000 to be
raised by public subscription. If
moro cun be raised, so much tho better for tho success of tlie exhibition.
No difficulty is anticipated in realizing nil that is required, but in
this matter, particularly, he who
gives promptly gives twice. Now is
the time to " boost" the Exposition
Fund. Collectors have also boen
appointed by the park committee,
and we trust they may meet with a
liberal response.
At this time, when amendments
are boing made to the pity incorporation act, we would suggest to the
council    tne   propriety   of    using
their influence to havo the   lengthy
and cumbersome name of our   city,
New   Westminster,    amended    by
striking out tlie prefix "New." The
name would then be "West in in ster,"
whioh is quite lengthy enough  for
till   purposes  unci   every    bit   ns
euphonious as the original title,    It
will be remembered that an attempt
was made at the time the new charter waa lief ure the legislature to have
tho name of the   city  amended   as
jfafled, however, its the (lien council
withheld   thoir  support   from  the
movement.   About the only   objection that we have ever heard against
the proposed change is that it would
involve disloyalty to the Queen, who
gave the royal city its name in the
first place.    This objection will hardly hold water, we think, as common-
sense   must   convince us   that our
most gracious, considerate, and preeminently sensible Queen would not
for n moment stand in the way of a
slight change affecting tho ease and
convenience of her loving   subjects.
That the proposed change would bo
in the interests of greater ease and
convenience no one will dispute who
has in any way had any experience
in tlie mutter.    Those who have occasion frequently to write the name,
New Westminster, and seo it   written, know how universally, almost,
it is mutilated, and in  what fearful
and wonderful ways.   There would
seem to he a sort of instinctive protest against writing the whole name,
and such makeshifts as these are ro- \
sorted to:    "N.W,," "New Westr.,"
,(N.   Westr.,"  »N.   Westminster,"
"New West.," "Westminster."   The
last   is   more frequently used, perhaps,   tlian   any other, the C.P.R.
having adopted it on all their printed
matter, and it is tho one most commonly used by the press.    All that
is require^ to make "Westminster"
the   uniform   and only title of tbo
royal city is official recognition and
adoption.    The present opportunity
should be seized for   that   purpose.
It is not likely that so good an   opportunity   will   occur  again  soon.
In tho meantime we shall sulfur the
drawback, not only of a cumbersome
title, but, by Its persistent   mutilation,   a.   cont'u-ion in tho miuds of
strangers abroad as to whether  tho
city   is  oue,   or   thero ore several
hamlets   with   us   many   different
though similar   named.    No  objection at all can lie against the   term
"Westminster."   It is homogeneous,
compact, convenient, and destined to
bo    almost   universally    adopted,
whether officially recognized or not.
No one would think of mutilating it,
but   tho   word would have its full
representation    on   all  occasions.
"What's in a name')" has been asked
In this easo there's a good deal; and,
ns unity is strength in all   matter}.,
we would suggest that our city council
and member use their undoubtedly
potent influence to have the sanction
of law appended to the popular namo
for the roynl city—Westminster.
. The proposed extradition treaty
between (.-treat Britain and the
United States has been rejected by
tke American senate. That august
bbdy has earned an undying notoriety hr giving-the last kick to any
and every meritorious measure of
an international significance, particularly where British and. Canadian
interests are eonoarned. It was the
K«publlcan senate of the United]
.States that rejected, early last-year;
tho treaty arrived at by the joint
British, Canadian, and American
fishery commission, and now the
same body nfter dallying two years
and a half with tlie subject, have
finally rejected the revised extradition treaty with Great Britain.
It will not be forgotton that it has
been impossible so far to secure a
proper extradition treaty botween
tho United States and Canada, and
that the fault, us in the present case,
has ever been with the former. This
fact has not prevented tho American press from casting reproaches in
the teeth of Canadians for harboring American defaulters, boodlers,
nnd scoundrels. Tlio gallful inconsistency of such u course has apparently never struck our newspaper
brethren south of the line. A portion
of the press, however, has exhibited
more intelligence and honesty, and
placos the blame where it belongs.
America, a thoroughly independent
and outspoken magazine on all
American subjects, administers this
Bcathing and deserved rebuke tothe
patriotic (?) senate: "If the United
.States senate had conspired to expose the national character of its
country to contempt, it could not
havo gono about it more effectually
than it has in rejecting this treaty.
Nothing could have more clearly
demonstrated the distance between
the United States senate and tho
intelligent mind of the public than
its action in this caso. Outsido tlio
ranks of the dynamite Irish, the
bomb throwing Anarohist, and the
class of un extraditable criminals
who regard Canada'as their possible
future home, the entire sentiment of
the country has been in favor of the
ratification of this extradition convention. Nevertheless, we have
been treated to the humiliating
spectaclo of grave senators trampling
on each other's tooa in their mad
haste to insert amendments in the
treaty that would rob it of every
terror to domestic boodlers or foreign
murderers, and then in despair lest
it might be tlio means of surrendering any unhung rascal to justice, rejecting the bepatched result by a
Vote of 38 to 15. What does it
mean . Bid tho treaty contain anything unworthy the acceptance of a
civilized nation . Not nt all. There
is nothing in tho treaty which offends against the principles which
should govern the intercourse of enlightened powers, It has long been
an admitted principle among writers
on tho intercourse of nations 'that it
is for the interest of general justice
that criminals should not avoid punishment by finding a refuge on another soil, not to say that tho country harboring then, may add thereby
to the number of its worthless inhabitants,' For crime there should
Lo no sanctuary short of the grave,
This is what our first extradition
treaty .with Groat;-Britain in 1794
recognized, so far us murder and
forgery wero concerned. By tho
treaty of Washington of 1842 tho
list of crimes was extended to include, besides murder and forgery,
assault with intent to commit murder, piracy, arson, robbery, and the
_i__.t_i__n.i_- '-j.      _.■,(.£_.,     |,i/jjm. lllfl
treaty just rejected sought to enlarge
the list so as to apply to and   comprehend:    ' 1.   Manslaughter.     2,
Burglary,     3.   Embezzlement    or
larceny of the value of ?50 or £10,
and upward.   4. .Malicious injuries
to property, whereby the life of any
person shall be endangered, if such
injuries constitute n crime according
to the laws of both   tho   high   contracting parties.'   The provisions of
the treaty were made to   apply   to
persons  convicted   of  the   crimes
therein specified   whose   sentences
thereupon shall not have been   executed, but the new treaty   was   to
have no retroacting force.    *   *    *•
In every way the treaty was guarded
from   working  an injustice to any
mere   political   ofi'ender,   and  was
simply a step   forward   along that
road of national comity that leads to
the golden rule of nation's doing unto others as they would that  others
should do unto   them,   Then  why
was tho treaty rejected .   Solely and
absolutely at the behest of a class of
Irish demagogues, who, not content
with having reduced their own land
to a state of lawlessness and misery,
would fain inoculate our whole   political  system   with   tho virtue of
their native disease—opposition   to
authority.     There   are   peaceablo,
peace-loving, law-obeying citizens of
Irish blood in this country; there aro
law-enforcing Irish officials and policemen  on   every   hand;  there is
something about the   Irish   nature,
outsido  of   politics,   that makes it
peculiarly attractive and enjoyable.
But  tho   waters   of  our southern
bayous  ure   not   more   cursed   by
alligators than the Irish race is   by
the   tribe   of   agitators.    *   *    *
It is at their bidding thaMhe extra-
dition  laws,   which people Canada
with boodlers and the United States
with the fugitive criminals  of  the
world, must remain in status quo."

Revelation of Borne of the Wonders of Thla Enlightened Age, *
tike Unto Fairyland - Traveling   1,000
Miles an Hour-Frits Napoleon Smith *
and the Beamrfcabta Features
of the «.Earth Chronicle."
Following are interesting extracts taken
from Jules Verne's highly entertaining
ui-Ucle in the Forum entitled: "In the year
■JSt)9:»
Littlo though they seem to think of it, the
peoplo of this twenty-ninth century live
continually in fairyland. (Surfeited as they
are with marvels, they ore indifferent in
presence of each new marvel. Tothemall
nuoms natural. Could they but duly appreciate the refinements of civilization In our
day; could tboy but compare the present
.frith the past, and so better comprehend
tho advance we have made! How much
luircr they would find our modem towns,
with populations amounting sometimes to
10,000,000 souls; their streets 800 feot wide,
their houses 1,000 feet In height; with a
tmnperaturethesameln aU seasons; with
their lines of aerial locomotion crossing the
sky In every direction I * * * Think of
tlio railroads of the olden time, and you will
be uble to appreciate the pneumatic tubes
through which to-day one travels at the
rate of 1,000 miles an hour. Would not our
contemporaries prizo the telephone and the
telephote more highly if they had not forgotten tho telegraph?
»      •      #      #   ■■ •      •      •
* t « Hence is sprung a pleiad of inventors, its brightest star being our greft
Joseph Jackson. To Jackson we are indebted for those wonderful instruments,
the new accumulators. Borne of these absorb and condense the living force contained inthosun'srays; others, the electricity stored in our globe; others, again, the
energy coming from whatever source, as a
waterfall, a stream, the winds, etc. Be,
too, it was that invented the transformer, a
more wonderful contrivance still, whioh
takes the living force from the accumulator, and, on the simple pressure of a button, gives it back to space in whatever form
mny be desired, whether as boat, light,
electricity, or mechanical force, after having first obtained from It the work required.
From the day when these two instruments
were contrived is to be dated tho era of
true progress. They havo put into the
hands of man n power that is almost infinite. As for their applications, thoy, tire
numberless. Mitigating the rigors of
winter, by giving back to tbe atmosphere
the surplus heat stored up during the summer, they have revolutionized agriculture.
By supplying motive power for aerial navigation, they have given to commerce a
mighty impetus. To them we are Indebted
for tho continuous production of electricity
without batteries or dynamos, of light without combustion or incandescence, and for
on unfailing supply of mechanical energy
for all the needs of industry.     c~*

* • * When two hundred, years ago
the political center of the United States
wns transferred irom" Washington to
Ceutropolis, tbe Manhattan Chronicle,
founded many years -previous by George
Washington Smith,' followed tbo Government und assumed the' name of Earth
Chronicle. Pressed on all sides by rival
journals of a more modern type, it was continually in dungerof collapse. Twontyyears
ago its subscription list contained but a few
hundred thousand names, and thon Mr.
Fritz Napoleon Smith—remote descendant
oftho original founder and owner—bought
it for a mero trifle and originated telephonic
journalism.
* « * Instead of being printed, the
Earth Chronicle Is every morning spoken to
subscribers, who, in interesting conversations with reporters, statesmen and scientists, learn thenews of the day. Further
moro, each subscriber owns a phonograph,
and to this instrument ho leaves the task
of gathering the news whenever he happens
not to bo In a mood to liston directly himself. Ab for purchases of single copies,
thoy con at a very trifling cost learn all that
is ln the paper of the day at any of the
numerous phonographs setupnonrlyeverywhere. ' -t.
In the courso of a fow years the number
of subscribers grew to, be eighty-five mill-
ioiist and Smith's wealth went on growing,
t;ll now it reaches tho almost unimaginable
llguro of ten billion dollars. This lucky, hit
has enabled him to erect his new building
in Two Hundred and Fifty-third avenue, a
vast edifice with four facades, each 8,U50feot
in length, over wbloh proudly floats the hundred-starred flag of tho Union.   » * •*.
Qwing to "tho progress of hygiene which
abates All tbe ola sources of unhealthful-
uess to tho compounding and preparing of
food according to scientific principles"-
which is received through food-pipes from
tho Grand Alimentation Company's establishment—and to the fact that "tho atmosphere is freed from the micro-organisms
that formerly used to swarm In it," Mr.
Bmlth is enabled to withstand the tremendous strain under which ho is constantly
placed in the performaneo of his multifari*
ouadut.es, "Vain the attempt to estimate
the amount of labor he undergoes.'.',
This morning Mr. Frits napoleon Bmlth
awoke in a very bad humor. His wifo having left for Franco eight days ago, be waa
feeling disconsolate. • *» • The first
thing that Mr. Smith does is to connect bis
phono.elephote, the wins of whkfti com-
mublcato with his Paris mansion. Thotelc-
pttotoI . Here is, another of the groat triumphs of science in our time. The transmission of speech Is an old story; the transmission of images by means of sensitive
mirrors connected by wires'is a thing but
of yesterday. » * • She is talking, pronouncing a name-hit name-Fritit The
delightful vision gave a happier turn to Mr.
Smith's thoughts. And Bow, at the call Of
imperative duty, light-hearted ho springs

Two minutes Inter the machine deposited

Mr. f-.iiiLib passed into tho next hall, an

• * * This, too, is one of Mr. Fritz Napoleon Smith's ideas, and in the Earth
Chronicle building a thousand projectors
are constantly engaged in displaying upon
the clouds these mammoth advertisements.
* * t # • • #
Next, from the advertisement hall he
passes to the reception chamber, whero the
Ambassadors accredited to tho American
Government are awaiting him desirous of
having a word of counsel or advice from
the ull-powerful editor. A discussion was
going on when he entered. "Your Excellency will pardon me,", the French Ambassador was saying to the Russian, "bub I
3cc nothing in tho map of Europe that requires change. The North for the Slavs!'
Why yes, of course; but tho South for tbo
Latins. Our common frontier, the Rhino,
it seems to mo, serves very well. Besides,
my government, as you must know, will
firmly opposo every movement, not only
againat Paris, our capital, or our two great
prefaotui'03, Homo and Madrid, hut also
against tho kingdom of Jerusalem, tho
dominion of St. Peter, of whioh Franco
means to bo tho trusty defender."
" Well sold 1" exclaimed Mr. Smith. "How
is it," ho asked, turning to tho Russian
Ambassador, "thnt you Russians tiro not
content with your vast empire, tho most
extensive in tho world, stretching from tbo
banks of tho Rhino to the Celestial mountains and tiio Kura-Korum, whoso shores uro
washed by tlio Frozen Ocean, tho Atlantic,
tho Mediterranean and the; Indian Ocean 1
riimi, wliut is tho use of threats! Ia war
posslblo in view of modern inventions-asphyxiating shells capable of being projected
a distanco of 60 miles, an electric spark
of DO miles, that can at ono stroke annihilate a battalion; to say nothing of the
plague, tbo cholera, the yellow fever, thut
tbo lieiligerants might spread among their
antagonists mutually, and which would iu a
lew days destroy the greatest armlest"
"Though, by a just turnabout of things
hero below, Great Britain has become a
colony of tho United States, the English are
not yet reconciled to the situation. At regular intervals they aro over addressing to
tho American Government vain complaints." The Russians have gained control
of tho Indies, and Australia bos an independent government.
Smith stopped into his air-coach, which
was in waitingforhiraatawindow. "Whoro
do you wish to go, sirl" inquired the coachman..
Lot me seo; I have three hours," Mr.
Smith mused. "Jack; take me tomy accumulator works at Niagara."
For Mr. Smith bos obtained a leaso of the
great fails of Niagara. Forages the energy
developed by tho falls went unutilised.
Smith, applying Jackson's Invention, now
collects this energy, and lets or sella it.
His visit to the works took more time than
he hut anticipated. It was four o'clock
when ho returned home, Justin time for the
daily audience which he grants to callers.

Finally, the fourth announced tho early
solution of 0 weighty scientific problem.
Every ono will remember the bold experiment made a hundred years ago by Dr. Nathaniel Faithburn. The doctor, being a firm
believer in human hibernation—in other
words, in the possibility of our suspending
our vital functions and of calling them
into action again after a time—resolved to
subject tlio theory to a practical tost  *
* » Reduced to tho condition of a mummy, Dr. Faithburn was coffined and laid in
a tomb. Time went on. September 25,
288ft, being tho day set for his resurrection, It was proposed to Mr. Smith that he
should permit tbo Becond part of the experiment to bo performed nt his residence this
oven ing.
" Agreed. Be hero at ten o'olock," on
sweredMr. Smith; and with that thaday's
audience Wits closed,
Loft alone, Mr. Smith busied himself with
cxamiiiinghisuccouiits— a task of vast magnitude, having to do with transactions
which involvo a daily expenditure of up*
ward of «S00,000. Fortunately, iiidecd, tlio
stupendous progress of mechanic art In
modern timo*. makes It comparatively
cosy. Thanks to tho Piano Electro-Reckoner, tho most complex calculations can bo
mado tn a few seconds. In two hours Mr.
Smith completed his task. Just in timo.
Scarcely had ho turned over the last page
when Dr. Wilkins arrived, After him came
tho body of Dr. Faithburn, escorted by a
numerous company of men of science." Thoy
commenced work at once. The caskot boing
laid d iwn in tho middle of the room, tho
telephote was got in 'readiness. Tho outer
world, already notified, was anxiously expectant for tho.wholo .woi'lfl could boeyo-
w_.tncs_.es of the performance,' a reporter
meanwhile, liko tho chorus in tho ancient
drama, explaining it all 'vim voce through
tho telephone.
"Thoy aro opening the casket" he explained. "Now they aro taking.Faithburn
out-of it—a veritable mummy, yellow, 111114
and dry. Strike tbo body and it resounds
liko a bloek of wood. They are now applying beat; now electricity. No result
Theso experiments are suspended for a
moment whilo Dr. Wilkins makes an examination of the body. Dr. Wilkins, rising, declares tho man to be dead. -Dead!' exclaims every one present 'Yob,' answers
Dr. Wilkins, 'dead I' 'And how long bits ho
been dead V Dr. Wilkins makes another examination,   'A hundred years,' he replies."
Tho ense stood just as the reporter said.
Faithburn was dead, quite certainly dead t
"Hero Ib a method that needs improvement" remarked Mr. Smith to Dr. Wilkins,
as tho scientific committee on hibernation
bore tho caskot out,
GRASMERE CHURCH-YARD.
Where    Green,   Coleridge,  Oteagh    an.
Other Celebrities Lie Burled.
The grave of Green, the painter, wltb its
beautiful Wordsworthian epitaph, bids us
pause, but wo return to that tomb of Hartley
Coleridge's. Above his dust tho oak leaves
wreathed upon the cross, the crown 0.'
thorns and the legend: "By Thy Cross and
Passion," aro eloquent of a life of constant
effort and sorrow that awe uses we gaze.
There are figures that Haunt this holy spot.
A sexton stands, rule and spade in hand. It
is January T, 1840, and with him are Wordsworth and Hartley Coleridge's brothers.
Wordsworth tells the sexton to measure out
the ground for his own and bis wife's grave,
snd then a third plot for the dead Hartley.
And Wordsworth is muoh in thought 01
Dora's and W imam's funeral two years ago
in 1847. "When I lifted up my eyes from
my daughter's grave ho (Hartley) was
standing thore." Then, turning to the sexton, lie said: "Keep tho ground for os; we
are old peoplo, it oan not bo for long." It
was not long; a year and a fow montbs
possed,and in Apr.1,1850, tho ground that day
measured out openodits grassy door to receive tho aged bard. We note the yew trees,
flight iii number, brought by Wordsworth's
direction from Loughrigg Tarn snd planted
With his own hand thero. We listen to tho
murmur of the bees in tho sycamores; we
hear tbe. undersong of the River Botha
close beneath' tbe low ohuroh wall. Our
eyes fall on tho name of Olougb, for to

before us tbe possible form of ouo who sang

of two nights and a matinee, thoy
