If Lord Tennyson could havo seen Mtsa Annlo

After many aocidenU and trials the wave-power

was at that time considered a hair-brained scheme,
but the projectors stock to their plan, and aeetn

thrown against them by the waves,
and the pipes wnich conduct tho water

tnan fourteen times. Winn the schooner Parallel
went ashore, and her cirgo of dynamite exploded,
the motor was completely wrecked. A mass of
rock, weighing coo tuns, waa thrown from the cliff
and fell acroas the cliaam over which the motor
was auipeuded, blocking it up to snch an extent
that nearly three months were consumed In blast
ing out the debris, boon afterwards anoiher mass
of stone, welxhlng 150 pounds, fell and had to be
removed. The motor, designed and built by K. T.

capable of exerting a great power.

that It can bo drawn up out of reach of tho waves

I attended a Sunday-school of this naturo In
session last weok, with tbo purpose of studying
the teachers. Each Chinaman bad a young lady
Beatcd beside him, and repeatod after ner, In tho
most docile manner, tho words of a hymn. It was
written on a card In Chinese and English. Tho
teacher would pronounce the English word and
tho Chinaman would repeat It aud at the same
tlmo read the Chinese word and got tho meaning
of the word In that way.
Their pronunciation was very laughable. "Jo
sua. Lover of My Buul" waa rendered, "Jesus,
Yovcr of My Soul," lu a slng-songy manner, which
the teachers could not correct to save themselves.
When tho Chinamen Joined In a chorus even the
teachers found It difficult to keep .sober counte
nances. The teaohers all addressed their pupils as
"boys," although some of them wsro grown to
that ago when bald-heads and toothless gums are
found In our own countrymen. Nearly all tho
Culm so were dressed In silk robes ot different
colors, and some of them lookod quite dignified. I
was told that they were all lanndrymen. A few
were dressed In tho American style, aud tome of
these were quite aandtfled, wosrlng diamonds In
their polished yellow shirt-bosoms and In their
cravats, and were otherwise gotten np In thu laloit
style. The pupils seemed to bo very apt under Iho
Instruction given them by tho young women.

don't give him a chanco to " cross " yon tho

TWO COMPANIES FOB ONE HOUSE
Complication Caused by a Change of Fleatf
at the Union Square. '
'When Manager J. M. Hill arranged with
Messrs. Robson and Crane to continue thoil
engagement at the Union Square Theatre,
thoso gentlemen wero, of course, delighted
and disposed of their dates throughout the
country in a satisfactory manner.
It was also supposed that Mr. Hill had '
disposed in a similar manner of the attrac
tions which were to have been seen at the
Union Squoro Theatre. It soems, however,
that the company playing " Deafen Brodlo " .,
held a contract with Mr. Hill to play at the
Union Square Thcatro the week beginning
Dec. 19 on a rental, aud that thoy deposited
money somo six months ago on account of
tho rent. Mr.) Hill telegraphed to the man
agers of this combination that they must
cancel tho weok for which thoy had con
tracted. No attention was paid to the tele
gram received from Mr. Hill, and that gen.
tlcman, giving the matter no further thought,
.went on with his negotiations with Robson
and Crauo. v
So now tho "Deacon Brodie" company f
insist upon holding their weok at the Union
Squaro Theatre and refuBO to surrender it
under any circumstances. They claim that
thoy own tho therstro for tho week beginning
Doo. 19. They aro now in Philadelphia, but
it was said yesterday that they will shortly '
bo in Now York prepared to take possession
of Mr. Hill's theatre. Thoy havo put the
matter into tho hanjds of a lawyer.
