that all the affairs of the world are

much easier to. havo a smilo on your

jmrt of tho schist on his and the Swede
groups will run nigh enough to be mined
and trout ud at a profit Tho rock will
run between fo and 810 lo the ton, and
as there are enormous bodies of it, the
•cost of mining—or rather quarrying—
will amount to more than 50cents*a ton.
The rock will, of courw, havo to be
treated In the district, ns it is not of
suilicloiitly high grade to pay freight in

fow hundred feet of tho ore body, and
with every natural advantage for cheap
mining and treatment, there is no roa
«nn why hundreds of s-'tiVnuvi t-hould uot

have Inrger oro bodies and higher grade

npHERE can be mo doubt that the
j_ credit for being" the most wonder-"
  Eul railway in the world fairly belongs to the great transiberian line,
which carries passengers, from central
Russia to Vladivostok and Port Arthur
on the Chinese coast of the Paciiic, says
the Waverley Magazine It.is 5,450
miles from Moscow to Port Arthur and
the train accomplishes the journey in 14
days, so that a person may now'travel
from England to Japan by this route in
less than three weeks.
As everybody knows, thia line is a
very importaut'featuro of the situation
iu the'war going on between Russia and
Japan, and, indeed, without it Russia
would find it next to impossible to conduct a war against her enemy. For the
time being it is used for nothing but
carrying troops und munitions of war,
nnd "the mail service whi^h began only
a few months ago has been temporarily
This Hue of 5450 miles has cost the
Russian government over 100,000,000
pounds to build. No fewer than 76,
000 men were employed in constructing
the chief section of 8,742 miles across
Siberia In making the bridges and
carrying out various other works as
many as 104,889 tons of cement wore
used", and 9,000,000 sleepers and baulks
of timber were employed in laying the
rails and iu erecting the houses and
station buildings. To provide all this
wood more than 100,000 acres of forests
had to be cut dowu. There were 800,000
cubic fathoms of sand as ballaBt.
Tke total weight of the rails used in
the whole length of .the line has been
1,235.936,000 pounds. Such an enormous
figure can convey very little meaning to
the mind ofthe ordinary person. Reck
oning the weight of tlie average inhabi
taut of a big town, men, women and
children, at 7 stone 2 pouuds—a very
liberal allowance—these railwav metals
weigh three times as much as the whole
population of London. At one place the
railway comeB to a stop at a big lake
(Lake Baikal), which is 3,000 feet deep.
In th« summer the passengers are ferried across and join a new train at the
other side In the winter, when the
lako is frozen, they are taken across in
icebreaking steamers; hut just at present the lines are laid along the ice s«>
that the train'may draw straight across
—the only train in the world that can
travel with passengers over a frozen
lake Strange to say, in th« whole of
the enormous length of this railway
there is but one tunnel.
Scores of thousands of persons of differ
erit. nationalities were employed in
buildhu the line, and the Russian gov
eminent, being unable to get sufficient
labor through the ordinary channel-*,
employed convicts upon it^ one workman iu every five being a criminal.
Some of these convicts—about one in
every 20—are still win ployed in different
opacities, and many people have come
to the, conclusion, in consequence, that
the line is not safe for travelling upon;
but only those convicts who hirw, served
their time and satisfied the authoiitics
as to good behavior for the future art'
i-o engaged'
A rually good and up to dateterminu-
beiug required for the line, the Russian
government built the town of Dalny
specially for it. There used to be nothing where Dalny is now, and the town
was built and equipped with public institutions, .parks and places of amusement before any body was allowed to inhabit it.
When there is no war four trains
start every week from Moscow for Port
Arthur and Dalny, two °of them being
run by the Russian government and
two by,a private company. The first
clas9 fare for the whole journey in a
sleeping compartment is 26 pounds, and
18 pounds second class. Food is extra
and for the. fortnight's travelling costs
about 7 pounds There are no smoking
rooms and libraries on the trains, and
there are usually about 75 passengers in
each train load Most things are cheap
on the train, except baths, which cost
4s 3d a time There are three berths to
every first class apartment, and tour to
every second.
There is always a certain amount of
danger of the trains | being attacked by
the Chinese, and therefore special precautions are taken as on no other railway The whole line through Manchuria
is guarded by many thousands of troops;
and there are companies of armed men
at every station. Besides this the train
for the "last portion of the journey is
protected by bullet proof armor plates,
which reach as high as the carriage windows, and a small body of soldiers is
putrid neck stretched by American justice. Ti-ere was always a doubt of Mrs.
Maybrick's guilt There is now not a
uoubt ot ner hmocence. Lord Russell,
England's Lord Chief Justice, was convinced of the woman's innocence, and
wrote so after her conviction. The
judge whose charge to the jury con
demned her was a. second Jeffrey, and
went insane after the trail; the judicial
beast was probably insane with Ameri-
cophobia'whiii iiedelivered his spew to
his select British jury.
The prisouers efforts -at procuring a
pardon were systematically checkmated
by methods time would shame a eunuch
of the torture chambers of old Rome.
At one time when things looktd'fair for
a consideration of her case by the Home
Secretary, some officious understrapper
of the prison caused it to be reported to
the queen that Mrs. Maybrick's chastity
while in prison was oi paste diamond
purity, and John Brown's relict, despite
her gray hairs, was thrilled by a virtuous spasm, and stopped all proceedings to the, prisoner's r. lief. 1 believe
the Guelph drab had much to do with
the prolonged punishment of an iuin.-
ci'.dt woman, for which may she be
anathema forever and ever wherever
she may be—and for other things. I
don't know whether Mrs. Maybrick will
ever find her children or not, but 1 believe that she will, and that thu Almiglry
will put the light of recognition in the
hearts and souls of both, mother and
children, so that they.shall know each
other from afar, and so knowing one
another, shall forget in their joy all
travail put upon them by a savage past.

The reports which come from Australia indicate that the population is not
growing at a satisfactory rate, says the
Louisville Courier-Journal. The birth
rate continues to doline, while the mortality among infants goes on increasing.
Meanwhile, the emigration from the
island exceeds the immigration. The
small immigration is in part due to .the:
efforts of the labor element to prevent
the importation of workingmen. But
while they are having their own in this
respect, they do not seem able to make
conditions sufficiently pleasant to keep
the population which they already have,
i here is a tide of emigration from New
South Wales, which in six months exceeded 16,000, considerably more than
the number of immigrants. These emigrants go to CaUBda, the United States,
and even to Great Britain, and their
places are not supplied. Australia has
an area more than sufficient for the
population of the whole of Europe \'et
it has but 3,750,000 inhabitants, and at
the present rate it will take forty-six
and one-half years to double that population, and 112 years to give it a population of 20,000,000. But even for this
slow rate of increase the prospect is bad,
for the natural increase is at a continually diminishing ratio It is evident,
therefore, if Australia is ever to realize
thahighesD hopes whichit-hus entertained of becoming a great and populous
country there must be au essential
change in the present policy.

of the grizzly he ever saw,
" '1 ju.nped behind big tree very
quick,' he said, 'and Mr. Bear came
close, rearing up on his hind legs I was
scared to shoot, only having one barrel.
Then I commenced to talk. Isaidr'Mr,
Bear, I am your friend. I come out
after deer. 1 hope you go away nnd ho
I kill deer and leave big piece of meat
for you." Then tho bear seemed to yet
friendly and he dropped on his legs to
the ground, much as to say he'd like a
piece of deer, and then ho run off into
the mountains."—Washington Post.

And yet the munacu of the years
Kind'* ami snail lind me unafraid.

How ehorged with punishment the scroll,
I am tnaBtor of my fate.
