It's all ever new.
An electric railroad te ran 100 miles
an hour between Chicago and St. Leuis
is projected. This sounds big, but the
range of electrical possibilities iias by
no means been reached. The successful
operation of such a read would doubtless
point te important changes in our
method of transportation. A epeed of
100 mile3 an hour, however, will re
quire an almost perfectly straight track
and en the great majority of the rail
roads of the East it would be entirely
out of the question. One most excellent
thing about the proposed new read is
that it will have no grade crossings.
All the transatlantic steamship lines
are preparing for an unusual rush of
business next year en account of the Chi
cago Exposition. Beyond doubt immense
numbers of Europeans will be drawn te
this country by the World's Fair, but it
is only reasonable te expect that the
number of Americans going abroad will
be comparatively small. Many of the
companies have agreed te carry exhibits,
and exhibitors and their empleyes, at
reduced rates. This is a wise course
en their part, for the greater the
number of exhibits sent from abroad
the larger will be the number of
European visitors te the fair.
According te the Earl of Yarborough,
who is the master of what is probably
the eldest pack of foxhounds namely,
that of North Lincolnshire a sum of
425.000.000 is BDent every year in Great
Britain en fex-huniing. The Earl has
compiled some interesting statistics
relative te this particular form of sport
and shows that the number of packs 'in
the United Kingdom amounts te 330
and that the horses engaged in follow fellow
, ing ,the packs are seme 10,000 in
number. The $25,000,000 mentioned by
Lord Yarborough as the minimum cost
., of fox-hunting does net include the cost
i of' carriage horses, cover hacks, travel
ing and ether expenses incidental te
fox-hunting. These figures, which have
generally been recognized by the
British press as correct, go te show that,
notwithstanding all that has been said
.' te the contrary, fox-hunting Is still as
popular a form of sport among the
Englishmen of the present day as It

The prolonged season of fine nutumn
weather has been intensely enjoyable,
but the lack of rain is beginning te be
severely felt. Frem various quarters
ceme reports of the failure of wells,
springs and ether sources of water
supply and In seme places it has
become necessary te carry water a long
distance in order te supply cattle, etc
Soen doubtless there will be announce
ments of threatened water famines in
cities 'and towns which are supplied
from reserveirs. Fer two months there
has been scarcely any rain, and the
dreuth cannot fail te assume alarming
proportions unless it is broken at an
early day. If rnin-mnkiug by mrlnl
explosions had prevWBucce'sSful, there
would be a demand for the trial of such
experiments in this region. As it is,
the ordinary operations of nature alene

The different aspects of religion are
as diverse as tiie workings of the hu
man mind. And there Is no bclief ad
vanced, no matter hew absurd Its doc
trines, tli at will net find seme votaries
te worship at Its shrlne. The negre
Christianity In the south Is a queer
combination of ignorance, superstition
and faith. In a bushel of their foolish
beliefs one finds only a small grain of
truth. In fact, It would seem they luvd
modified their former fcticbism into a
kind of heathen Christianity.
As a matter of truth, a southern ne ne
geo's piety has Uttle Influence en his
everyday life. Some of the biggest
rogues and most Immoral arc the loud
est singers In the "mcctln'," and no
thought .of the Incongruity of their
lives ever strikes them. Perhaps the
doctrine tliat prevails among them te a
large extent Induces this contrast for

Many southern housekeepers regard
their servants' efforts at "gcttln' 'Uglen"
with horror. EYr, contrary te what
ene would suppose, these who "belong
tr de church" are generally the least
reliable. And their methods of win
ning salvation are anything but pleas
ant. In the first place, they Imagine
that all conversions are the result of
sudden revelation. In this revelation,
which they call their "'spcrience,''
they arc supposed te be transported out
of the ilesh and te visit, In the spirit,
another world. All this takes place
while the body Is said te remain der
mant In a trance.
On awakening, seme tell marvelous
tales of the sights they havb seen, de

of the New Jerusalem and the cavern
ous sulphur pits of hclL Others speak
of familiar conversations twlth the
Saviour. And these talcs, fjSs the New
Yerk Advertiser, ludlcroei Jfa, they gen

fight. Some almost tear their clothing
te pieces In their excitement.
Te a northern reader this state of Ig

city of New Yerk there is a large class
whose ignorance is as dense, and who
need the missionary as much as tbeii

Paws, Nev. 0. An explosion occurred
In this city Tuesday .morning by which
two policemen lest their lives aud an
other was fatally injured. The affair
was undoubtedly the work of anarchists
seeking revenge against the Carmaux
mining Ce., whose long-continued strug
gle with their empleyes was amicably
settled a few days' age. The anarchists
failed In their attempt against the
company, but as they succeeded In kill
ing two policemen they .are jubilant
ever the outcome of their dastardly
crime. ..... ... r - - .
Early Tuesday morning two police
men were passing along the Avenue de
l'Opera. When they arrived In front of
the office of the Carmaux Mining Ce.,
they saw a curious iron vessel, resembl
ing a saucepan, lying clese te the build
ing In which the company's ofilces are
located They plcked It up and carried
It te the police station, where they and
ether officers began te cxamlne it
They had been investigating only a few
minutes when the .vessel exploded
with terrific force, Instantly killing
the two officers and seriously wounding
A number of officers were In the sta
tion, and it is miraculous that mero of
them were net killed. The windows of
the building" wero blown out, the plas
tering tern off and the furniture broken
and scattered in every dtrectiea In
fact, the whele interior of the building
was wrecked, and se great was the
force of the explosion that even the
outer walls were damaged.
A large orewd gathered about the
wrecked building, and the greatest In
dignation was expressed against the
authors of the outrage. The affair has
caused a renewal of the fears that Wcre
experienced during the time of the 6ut
rages perpetrated by Ravachel and his
accomplices. The public believe that
this is the first of another series of out
rages. The police, however, assert that
the affair was an attempt te blew up
the offices of the Carmaux Mining Ce.
