AH ELECTRIC RAILWAY.
Tlio f oi mill opening of thcPoit
rush Eleclilc Railway, which took
place on the 2!Hh ult., must he re
garded as an event of considerable
impoitancc, not only in the history
of Iicland, but in the progress of
elccliical industry. The railway
from Poitrush to the Giant's Cause
way is" louiatknblo ns being tho first
long elcetiic tramway in the world.
It is over six miles long and has cost
iMo.OOO, which has been raised by a
company foimcd in the country. The
line, after passing through the princi
pal street of Portiush, follows the
8casidc road, a footpath six feet
bi oad being reserved for the railway.
The gaugc'is only three feet, and the
gradients arc very steep in places
as much as one in thirty-five and in
parts of its course the curves me
slim per than might have been desira
ble had the loutc which it takes been
chosen by tho engineers. The force
to woik it is generated by a waterfall
in the river Bush, with an available
bead of twenty-four feet, the electric
curicut being conveyed by an under
ground cable to the' end of the tram
way. The water power passing
through the turbine wjitorw heels,
which utilize the whole force of the
fall, is said to amount to ninety
horse. It is obvious that for a light
train of tiamcais thcic is enough and
to spaie. The practicability of such
a line is now a settled matterr The
' only question is whether it is likely
to pay as a commercial ventuic.
Considering that the initial power
costs nothing, and that coal in Ireland
is dear, thcie arc good hopes that a
line certain to be freely used by the
continuous stream of tourists always
going between Portiush and Bush
mills, on their way to the Giant's
Causeway, an ill satisfy the expecta
tions of its projectors. Exaxuiwr.
THE HOT WATEif REMEDY.
A late London Jjiincet, the great
British authority on the science of
medicine and suigery, contained an
exhaustive article from an eminent
New Yoik physican, Dr. Ehpraim
Cutter, on the "Therapeutical
Di inking of Hot Water." The idea
is a ncwly-icvivcd craze in New Yoik
and the East, and few lich people
think of passing a day without ta
king a pint ot hotwatci, fiom 110
cleg, to 150 deg. Faheicnheit. The
idea is that it loosens the coatings of
the mouth, throat and stomach,
which bilious substances arc soluble
in water of the temperatiue named,
and theieby cuies or prevents many
of the ills the human llesh, and
paiticulaily that of the high liver, is
heir to. 1 speak of it as a "newly
revived" ciaze because the tieatment
is really an old one. In conversation
with an old fiiendol'IIoiaceGieeley,
he told me an old stoiy of the way
the famous editor used to lely on hot
water as a regular drink. lie said :
"Once Mi'. Greeley asked me if I
wouldn't take something?" I said
'Yes,' and down staiis he led me,
and around a corner into a saloon,
where we seated ourselves at a table.
'What is it, genthmm?' asked the
waiter. 'Well,' replied Mr. Greeley,
looking at me earnestly, 'I always
take hot water, and I advise you to ! "
The friend, so he says, took, "siithin
else," but Mr. Greeley peisisted in
having his cup of boiling hot water,
and declined it both "good" and
THE HUSBAND'S OPPORTUNITY.
It is doubtful whether the male
head of a family often appreciates
the oppoituuity lie has for diffusing
sunshine at home, or comprehends
how much of gloom he can bijug
with hiin in a troubled face nnd
moody temper from the ofllce or tho
street. The house mother is within
four walla from morning till dinner
time, with few exceptions, and must
bear the worriments of fretful child
ren, inefficient servants, weak nerves
unci unexpected calleis. And she
intibt do this day after day, with
mouotonous regularity.. The hus

tails of home care, lie meets fi lends.
