When it was unnounced in the

while quite prepared to give Ameri.

yet unprepared for such a demand
on their credulity as this. The
thing, however, was done, and tho
hero of it was apt. Paul Boyton, of
the New Jersey laifegards, Atlantio
City. This gentlenian, a profes
siounal diver of well-known daring,
left New York about a lortnight ago

Boyton's intention whent from two to
three huiidred imilis disnt fron
New York to jump overbutird and
swim back, but the co in antder of the
stJamer was a man of little faith, and
voted the experiment. Capt Boy

been breathed into their credulos, t

of this subject we are indebted fir
nanty facts, says that 50,000 acres of
WiEconsito timber are out annually to
supply the Kansas and Nebraska

are even nov practically destroyed,
and, if the Northern Pacific railway
is built, it will open up to the ax the
one remaining belt of timber in Ore.

Tie railroads have been the great
debtroy-rs of our foseits. They use
one hundred and Aixty mIllions of
ties annually-this means the level
