Tho Fiji Islands boast of fivo regu

Tho business of publishing news
papers in India is progressing very
rapidly, thanks to tlio groat interest
shown by its rulora in advancing tlio
education of tho various races thore.
Through tho nioaiiB of sixteon lan
guages livo hundred and lifty-oight
periodicals have boon established.
Tho first newspaper in that groat
country was llicking's Gazette, is
sued January 29, 1881. Tho Bengal
Hurkuru is now tho oldest paper of
tho empire, tho first number having
been issued January 10, 1795. Tho
publications of India aro probably
moro thoroughly circulated and
read, in proportion to tho numbor
of copies issued, than those of any
other country. A singlo paper not
unfrccjuontly goes through an en
tire village, passing from house to
house, and is rend by or to every in
habitant, until, ovon with tho ton
dorost haudling, it is complotoly
Tho highest pricod nowspapor in
tho worldis tho Mashoualanu Horald
and Zambesiau Times, published at
J?ortSalisbury,Mashonalaud, and is
sued daily at twonty-fivo cents por
copy. This paper is about tho size
of a shoot of foolscap, and tho
printing is dono by tho useful hokto
graph, tho printing press not having
as yet pouotratod into this interest
ing rogion of South Africa, which
two years ago was almost wholly
occupied by savages, and can now
communicate with Loudon in about
an hour. Probably tho smallest
nowspapor over printed was ail issuo
of El Tolograma of Guadalajara,
Mexico, which was iour inches
Tho island of Borneo has one of
tho smallest regularly-published
nowspapors in tho world. It is tho
Sarawak GazottO; a paper eight and
a quarter inches m width by thirteen
inches in length, tho first issuo of
which appeared Aug. 1, 1870. The
Gold Coast Times, published at
Cape Coast, Africa, another of tho
world's smallest nowspapors, is print
ed on pink-tinted paper, eight by
fourteen inches, and circulates about
100 copies per week. Tho Evening
Tidings, tho smallest newspaper in
England, was started in 1870 to
furnish news of tho Franco-Prussian
war. It is first consisted of a singlo
sheet, ten by seven inches, printed
only on ono side; but it now consists
of four pages, about twelve by eight
inches, two of which aro almost com
pletely occupied by advertisements.
Ono would not expect to find
many (if any) newspapers in Iceland,
but it is nevertheless a fact that
there aro nearlv as many papers on
that little northern island, with a
population of but G9,220, in tho
vernacular of tho natives, as there
aro in China, with its 3S6,850,0OO in
habitants. Iceland has ten native
papers; China but fourteen. With
ono exception the nowspapors of
Iceland aro published at a point
farther north than any other journals
in existence. Tho one exception is
an illustrated Esquimaux paper,
published at Godthaab, a Danish
colony on tho wost coast of Green
land, frldeg. lOmin. N. lat., 51deg.
37min. long. This particular paper
claims tho distinction of being tho
northernmost newspaper in tho
Tho city of Duudeo, Scotland, can
show a groator output of papers in
proportion to its size than any other
Tho most remarkable of all tho
American papers and there is a
groat variety of them is the Acta
Comparationis Litorarum Univorsa
rum, a review of comparative litera
ture, with contributors in every part
of the world, each of whoso articles
is printed in its native tongue. Ono
of tho strangest publications on this
continent is tho Priuco Albert Critic,
at Priuco Albert, a small town in
tho centre of the great Northwest
Territory. This paper, at first sight,
appears to bo a shoot of closely
written foolscap, but it is in reality
a livo newspaper, and is a specimen
of what can bo dono by an ontor-
E rising journalist without type. Tho
eadliues and all matter, instead of
being sot in type, is writton, or half
printed in ink with an electric pen
on prepared paper, tho rest of tho
issuo (circulation about 500) being
imprints of tho original.
Very few people, ovon in England,
aro awaro of tho fact that thoro is a
newspaper printed and published
every day in London, of which not a
single copy is oilbrod for sale. It
appears on no bookstalls, falls into
tho hands of not a singlo newsboy,
and tho shops and nows-agonts know
it not. Tho paper referred to is tho
Evening Telegraph, which ia pro
duced by tho proprietors of tho
Daily Telegraph with tho view of
preventing the issuing of au evening
Telegraph and tho uso of a name
which tho owners of tho morning
journal have made a valuable pro
perti. Another thing in connec
tion with this nowspapor is, that
there is a building on the Thames
embankment, containing a plant of
printing machinory and appliances,
capauio oi turning out tho Daily
Telegraph, should any mishap occur
to tlio 1-leet street olhcos, so that in
case the entire establishment now in
uso woro burned down in tho after
noon tho stall" of tho Telegraph
could stopover to tho building in
reserve and produce tho next morn

A uniquo newspaper is soon to bo
issued in London, printod in llraillo
typo, which consists of a series of
rnisod dots, and which can bo read
by tho blind.
Probubly tho most voluminous
newspaper though not tho largest
in point of size of sheet -that hub
over yet boon published, was a
special edition of the San Francisco
Chronicle, issued some two years
ago, and containing fifty sheet! or
one hundred dml'o.s.
Tho entire circulation of tlio hows
pupur press of the world is estimated
at 10,700,000,000 copies, nud thoro
exists ono journal for ovory 82,000

Singularly Brutal Hazing: at a
Methodist Collage in Ohio.
A torriblo scono took placo tho
other daj at Monnott Hall, a ladies'
seminary, situated at Dolawaro,
Ohio. A party of girls bolonging to
tho junior class recently formed
thomselvos into a fraternity styled
Ioua Nu. Tlioso girls woro holding
a socrot meeting in one of tho rooms,
on Wednesday night, whou about
twenty of their classmates burst in
upon them. A reception was to havo

theso iutrudors dotorminod to pro-,
vout their victims from wearing low
nocked dresses on that occasion.
Thoy had procured a solution of ni
trate of silver, and with this caustic
pictures and letters woro drawn up
on tho shoulders and arms of tho
poor girls. Black scars and wouuds
woro thus produced upon tho tender
Rivalry has long existed between
tho male students and thoy, on tho
sauio night, resolved on "a hazing.
Five members oi tho juuior class
were about to iuitiato a classmato
into tho mysteries of an order re
cently formed, whou, suddenly, tho
door was burst opon aud a numbor
of sophomores rushed in upon them.
The juniors woro tied hand and
foot. With a sharp, pointed stick a
strong solution of burnincr caustic
was ground into tho faces of tho
victims. All tho juniors, with ono
or two exceptions, had the letters
D. O. A. branded on their faces.
Horns woro paintod on their fore
heads. They woro laid upon their faces
and beaten with red-hot shovels.
This torriblo punishmout went on
until their tormentors, it is said,
sickened at tho sight, when thoy
were left to be released by passors
by. Tho next morning warrants wero
sworn out for nine of tho porpotra
tors of this terrible outrage. Tho
offence is punishable with from ono
to twenty 3'ears in the penitentiary.
