WEDENSDAY, MAY 9, 1888.
An riucouut in n New York paper
of April lGth, of the death of a boy
from catching hold of an eleetiie
wire which had become detached
from the pole to which it had been
suspended, suggests that precau
tionary measures should be taken to
avoid a similar accident here. As
the electric light becomes more gen
erally used, the danger from broken
or detached wires increases. The
current which is needed to run the
arc-lights on a long c'ueuit as we
have here is so strong that a mere
touch is enough to produce insensi
bility, if not death. There can be
but one sure way to aveit this
danger, and that is to put the vt ires
under ground. Now is the time to
consider this matter while electric
lighting in this Kingdom is in its in
fancy, and before the system be
comes so complicated and intricate,
that a change cannot be made with
out incurring an immense expense.
And while this matter is being
considered it would be as well to
deUe some plan by which electric
wires of both kinds, telephonic and
lighting, be removed from the un
sightly poles upon which they are
Strung, and put away from the pos
sibility of doing harm underground.
Telephonic wires have multiplied a
hundred fold within the last few
years, until the danger in case of
firc-is apparent to every one. So it
will be with the electric-light wire.
As this form of light becomes more
popular and is generally used the
danger will increase a hundred, yes,
two hundred fold. Not only by the
necessary multiplication of the eon
ducting wires, imperfect insulation
from chafing, etc. ; but other causes
which the most careful and expe
rienced electrician cannot guard
against. The chief difliculty which
has stood in the way of an under
ground system, has been the impos
sibility of making the insulation per
fect ; but that has been overcome
in several cities in America, and we
can profit by their expeiience and
adopt their system. Another objection
may be raised, and that is the cost
of such a system. Such a consider
ation should not be allowed any
weight, especially where the conve
nience of the citizens is at stake,
and the question of human life is in
volved. So far as the telephone wires are
concerned in themselves, they may
not be dangerous to human life, but
whero they are run on the same
poles as the lighting wires, as in
this city, and where they may como
in contact with those wires from any
cause, such as the vibration caused
by a strong wind, or from having
dropped from their original hang
ings and become chaffed, they arc
exceedingly dangerous; and the
public have n right to ask protection
from such dangers.
, The telephone companies perhaps
are not making money enough out
of their systems to warrant thom in
making the expenditure that an un
derground system would entail ; but
the Government, in whoso hands
the electric lighting is, should cer
tainly seriously consider this ques
tion and adopt such measures as
will insure the lives of its citizens
against any possibility of danger
from electric wires ; and the only
- effectual way that this can bo ac
complished, is to put tho wires un
derground. A school teacher, who had been
telling the story of David, ended
with, "and all this happened over
tlireo thousand years ago j" A little
cherub, its blue eyes opening wide
with wonder, said, after a moment's
thought: "Oh, dear, sir, what a
memory you have got J"

THE BUMBLE BEE.
Editor Bulletin : The bumble
bee plugue is becoming an nlarralng
one to thoso who arc acquainted
with tho lavages of theso winged
pests. Various experiments have
been adduced to exterminate them
but as yet none prove effectual.
Soan. mittVi paint nnd other reme
dies hnvo been employed without
nall in the warfare against them
"but they get there just the same."
They prefer dry redwood as n habi
tation, but leadily gnaw through
oak and chew lend with impunity.
Sheetlead is soon penetrated by this
ravager. Three thicknesses of lead
tacked over a hole were nicely per
forated in n few days. A cartridge
was placed in a bee's door-way to
obstruct ills exit. A few days after
the cartridge was picked up where
it had been dislodged ftom the nolo,
with the bullet eaten half down to
tho brass shell on one side. They
seem to draw the line at brass. As
evinced by the bullet their mouthfuls
are not so dainty as you would ima
gine. A firm in Kentucky has a
10,000 contract to ship bumble bees
to Australia. They are claimed to
be very beneficial in fertilizing
clover blossoms by distributing the
the pollen. Mr. Bumble-bee anni
hilator has the floor.
MARRIAGE A LA MODE.
In ordci to provide wives foi the
emigrants in New Caledonia, the
French Government is said to have
advertised for one hundred young
women to go to Noumea, offeiing a
free passage and one hundred francs
to each. It appears that any woman
who accepts this generous offer must
engage to marry an "emigrant" at
Xounien. Emigrants are of two
sorts voluntary and compulsory
and in Noumea it may be safely
considered that the latter sort is in
the majority. In plain English,
divested of all French polish, one
hundred of the young women of
France are asked to votnc to Noumea
in order to wed l'tcidivistes, and are
offeicd four pounds of British mo
ney to do so. It must be borne in
mind that recidioiste is the French
for incorrigible felon. That heredi
tary instincts are developed under
circumstances favorable to their de
velopment is well known, and when
such instincts arc not of advantage
to human improvement their course
ought to be checked. Such a call as
has been made by the French Gov
ernment can only be listened to ly
women of the lowest nature, and,
even though responded to by such,
is not the less revolting, while it is
a direct insult to the women of
France. The hundred women who
will be chosen must of necessity be
of the criminal class, and when they
are married to their emigrant hus
bands open defiance is given to all
that regulates morality. For what
can the offspring of such marriages
be? We do not gather figs from
thistles and grapes fiom thorns, nor
can we expect to find a pattern of
the highest morality in the family of
a recicliviste father, and a mother
who has been one of the hundred
women advertised for by the French
Government. As a means of grow
ing and forcing criminals the ex
periment will be a success, and in
no other light can it be viewed.
Our children, and our children's
children, will have dangerous neigh
bors in the offspring of such mar
liages as the French Government
are trying to effect. The "Repub
lican mairiages" of '02 meant death
to the body, but the marriages of
'88 mean death to morality. Aus

1REATMEKT FOR EXHAUSTED NEHVES.
Of fourteen cases that 1 have
completily secluded as a method of
treatment in nerve exhaustion, not
one jias done well. 1 have found It
better to plan a scries of nmusc
ments and a course of passive exer
cise, together with frequent feeding.
My business men take two hours
daily at the health lift, wheio tho
exciciso, together with mnsngc and
jolly company, pnves strong enough
attraction to cull them away from
their regular occupations every day.
They drink a tumbler of milk at a
dairy or bowl of bouillon at a phar
maoy every two hours. In these
days of extracts of beef, mutton,
chicken, clam, etc., there is no need
for nny one who can pay for them
to go hungry. Even sightseeing
that most exhausting of labors
may be rendered less fatiguing by
feeding every two hours, if it bo
with only a tumbler of milk. Plenty
of digestible food and two hours
stolen from the middle of a busy
day, are the best remedies for ner
vous exhaustion. Dr. V. F. Hutch
