THE LICK TELESCOPE.
Now York, Sept. 12 The Tribune
lias the following: On the steamer
Rclgerland which arrived yesterday
fiom .Antwerp was Professor Simon
New comb of "Washington villi his
wife and daughter. 'rhuy woht
directly home on the afternoon traiiii
Professor Newcomb's family has
been abroad for three years. He
left this country in July to bting
them homo, and to visit the great
observatory at SI. Petersburg to sec
about the disks for the telescope
oidercd for the Lick Observatory in
Laluornm. Limning villi your re
porter yesterday he said: "The
notable item of news which I
gathered at St. Petersburg was the
fact that the Czar has ordered the
award of a great gold medal to
Alvin Clark & Son of Cambridge,
ilabs., who manufactured the glass
for the great telescope in the Russia
Observatorj at Pultowan. This
medal is rarely awarded. It is the
ilrt one oidered by the present
Czar since his accession to the
throne. There has been some delay
in striking it, as he desires to have
his own bust on it, and the engiavcrs
have required time to perfect il.
3Iy special mission to Europe was
to see this telescope. The mount
ings were made by the IJapsolds of
Hamburg. I examined the instal
ment thoroughly, both as to its
structuic and woiking. It is large,
and the linest refracting telescope
in all its points that has ever been
made. The woiking is admirable
in every respect. I visited Paris to
see if they had finally succeeded in
casting the rough glass for the Lick
Telescope. They have succeeded.
The older was given over four years
ago. The firm in that interval made
sevcial unsuccessful efforts to cast
the glass. A pair of disks have
finally been made. They arc both
to be shipped at once to Alvin Clark
A: Sons, for final grinding and
polishing. I advised that both be
sent so that the optician might make
his choice. The maker is Fiel of
Paris. The disks are thirty-nine
inches in diameter. They will be
M inches larger than the disks of
the Pultowan Telescope. The Lick
instrument will be fifty-live feet
long, a monster, and the largest re
fracting telescope in existence."
which "bent the record," inndc nn
average across the Atlantic of -155
miles per day, or almost exactly
nineteen miles per hour. The steam
ship has thus come within three
miles an hour of the transcontinental
train, and, as the time of tho ocean
passago is being steadily cut down,
it looks as though one would before
long cross tho Atlantic as rapidly as
he can get across tho western pait
of the Continent.

TO AVOID DIPHTHERIA.
Diphtliciia is a preventable dis
ease. Proper pi eventing measuics
aie almost invariabty followed by
the limitation of the disease to the
lirt case or cases. "When diphtheria
gets away from the primal y cases
ana makes its escape upon the com
munity, somebody is to blame.
Keep away from the souices of the
contagion. Do not go where the
disease is if you can help it; and,
above all, do not let your children
go where it is. Peimit no one to
come to your house who has been
where it is. Fiom the dwelling and
its vicinity banish all souices of
filth, whether of the ground, of the
water or of the air. The ground
under and around the house, if not
naturally dry, should be thoroughly
and deeply drained. Diphtheria
does not come from far through the
air, therefore do not shut up your
house tightly, thinking thereby to
shut out the disease. By so doing
you shut in the poison of rein ealhecl
air, which paves the way and makes
. it easjT for the poison of diphtheria
''to claim your children. Let the
sunshine in by day and the pure air
both by day and night. AVhen
diphtheria is prevalent, avoid all
crowded gatherings ; especially keep
children from such places. What is
apparently only n common sore
tlno.it in adults will sometimes give
lise to an outbreak of diphtheria in
children; tlieicfoie, in all cases of
I sore throat, prudence would dictate
caution in using dishes which others
are to use. A kiss to a child under
these circumstances may be the un
conscious signature of the little
one's death wairant. "When diph
.theria is life, keep from the chil
dren gum, jew sharps, harmonicas
and other things which go from
' mouth to mouth. Be sure that he
drinking water and the milk are
pure. A Jieport of the Maine
State Jioanl of Jlcalth.
STEAMSHIP VS. RAILWAY TRAIN.
It seems rathei absutd to talk
about a steamship beating a joilroad
train in n long-distance contest, but
it begins to look as though it might
happen. It is aheady a fact that
the fastest boats on the transatlantic
lines make almost as good time as
tho Pacific Railroad lines do fiom
the Missouri river to the western
coast. Fiom Omaha to S.ui Fran
cisco, by tho Union and Cential Pa
cific lines, is a distance of 1,928
miles, or about two-thiids of the
r, distance between Quccnstoun and
' Sandy Hook. The schedule time
, by the fastest train between Omaha
and San Fianchco is eighty-eight
hours, lacking ten minutes, which
makes the avciago rate of speed
-under twenty-two miles per hour.

npHE undersigned, a Committee of Di
JL rectors of the Equitable Life As
surance Society of the United States,
appointed to formulaic the views of the
Board on the advantages offered by the
Society to the public, report:
1st The Society issues all theapprov.
cd forms of assurance, including Ordi
nary Life, Ei dovvment and Tontine po
licies. It is immaterial to the Directors
which form of policy is taken by in
2d The Life and Endowment forms
of policy provide for annual cash divi
dends and a sui lender value; aie indis
putable after three years and puj able
immediately after pioof of death.
M The premiums on a Tontino po
licy aie the same .is on the Ordinary
Bile, but, while the latter is only pay
able in 'tho event of death, the holder of
the Tontino policy has the right to draw
tho whole of the reserve and jhe accu
mulated profits in rash at the end of a
stated period ; thus, during his own life
time, after his producing years aio past,
ho tun, without any larger premium
than on an ordinary policy, sccuro these
4th Experienro shows that the icturn
paid in cash on maturing Tontine po
iictcb approximates to or exceeds the
amount of premiums paid by policy
holders, so that the average cost of the
assurunco will be only about tho interest
on tho premiums.
Cth -Tontine policies, liko others, are
paid in full in tho event of death at any
time during the term of the policy, and
aro incontestable after three years, and
payable immediately after due proof of
Oth Experience shows that the mor.
tallty is lower among Tontino policy
holders, as tho better lives seek this
kind of assurances, which is a consider,
ablo source of profit.
7th Tontino policies will be mado
non-forfeitable under tho la,ws of the
Stute, if so desired at the time the as.
EUiauco is cflcctid,
8th The Tontino system is fair and
just j its accounts arc accurately kept,

funds judiciously Invested and Inmrov
