the publication of the first two volumes of

Far East,' has led to the preparation of a
third volume, which completes the series,
by letting the young voyagers visit Ceylon
and' India, and in incidentally describing
Borneo, the Phillipine islands and Burmah.
As in the preceding parts, the author ex
hibits what might be seen in traveling on
the route over which he takes bis heroes;
the plan involving descriptions of manners
and customs, cities, countries, birds, beasts,
etc. The book is characterized by profuse
illustration and elegant typography, which
make it as beautiful as it is entertaining

"'Without a nouE,' tho last novel by
the Kev. E. P. Roc, follows the line of itg
predecessors in that it has moral reform for
its purpose, and habit more than character
for its study. Tho aim of the volume is to
depict three evils which threaten our social
life the opium habit, the tenement Iioubo
and tho shop-girl system. To the present
ment of each of theso the author has framed
his situations in a manner best adapted to
exhibit them in their most striking phases.
All the subjects have been carofully studied
aud tho array of facts presented are worthy
of tho most serious attention. All are nec
essarily sombre, almost repulsive, and that
tho author has woven from them a story of
powerful interest, aud at the same time of
delicacy, is a proof of his literary skill. It
must bo said, however, that there is a tingo
of exaggeration about tho bpok, arising
from tho txtrcrao facts presented and the
desire of tho author to make real tho evils
described, that detracts not a littlo from its
moral force. It is, moreover, difTuso in
stylo, and would gain much by condensa
tion. Still, if it is tho means of directing
public attention to the evils of which it
treats, so that they may ultimately be cor
rected, It will have proved its use, apart
from tho pleasure which it ia cortain to give
as a story."
The following notice of "Hazel Kirke,"
which will be presented in our now ypora
house, on next Friday and Saturday even
ings, by tho colebratod Madison Square
theatre company, of New York. The mem
bers composing tho company which will
appear here, having, with one -exception;
presented the pieco for over 340 times on
tho boards of tho Madison Square theatre
In New York, is takon from a late isaif of
the Ban Francisco Chronicle: ,
Tho California hat boen ft sight wertht
the pries of admission to look at. Ladies
of all ages, complexions and temperaments,
packed in from the orchestra to the apex of
the gallery; handkerchiefs and fans flutter
ing through the house without cessation ;
sobs audible and tears visible everywhere,
and nothing to be heard of the usual buBtle
and talk and bickering which generally
drown dramatic prformances. The old,
simplo pathos of the domestic drama has
not yet lost its power to open tho chamber
of tears, and the woes of "Hazel Kirke,"
the miller's daughter, which brought the
mist to her mother's eyes years ami years
ago, awoke quite the same kind of sym
pathy in this progressive ago of 1881. It
has been argued for the last two or three
years that no mild dose of excitement will
move an audience nowadays. But Clara
Morris, the only emotional, with all the
magic of imitated death, never sent out into
the daylight of a Saturday aftornoon such
red eyes as ono could have feen on Kerney
street after yesterday's matinoo. "Hazel
Kirke," whatever defects it may possess
from a purely critical stand-point, proves
one thing clearly, that tho public do not
ask for French pruiency if they can get
wholcsomo American pathos.
Services at the two 'Catholic churches in
the city will bo of more than ordinary
solemity and interest.
In tho Methodist church the usual morn

be held to-day. Sunday school will bo held
at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, and Sunday
school Christmas service at 7 o'clock in the

Very interesting services will be held in
the Presbyterian church to day. This morn

The Advantage of Being a Boy.
At t!i closing of tho Railway (N.J.)
grammar school, Adolph Jacobs, agod
13 years, composed and rend tho fol
lowing composition on "Tho Advantage
of Being a Boy":
A boy Is generally born when he is
very young, and goU to be a man be
fore liis rnothor. A bov Is mt so skit
tish as a girl. II take u inouso, which
would scare lis sister half to death,
and tios a string to Its tail and swings
it ovor his head. Then ho is in his
glory and laughs at his sister, who is
looking for n knot-bolo to hide in. Ilo
wears no laoo bibs or oorsets, petticoats
or skirts. A boy possessos ton times
more chook than a girl, but if he ever
does any mischief be own up to it with
ft bright smiling face. Girls are a gront
donl of trouldo to thoir parents, who
have to keep thcra until somebody falls
in love and marries them. Not so with
a boy he takes c:u e of horses, works
in tho mino and raises a cabin. All
that girls do for exercise is to make
dolls, chntnises. ntul crochet work,
while tlio boy, tho spark of mankind,
is putting up soino jnb to play on Ms
toachor, or playing tlio glorious gan.o
of biw-b.ill. 'Hurrah! then, for tho
boys. Thoy aro standard boarors of the
The great orator haa' a taste f. a pomp

erto represented, Ho rides iu carriag

and drawn by blooded horses. Tho
Petit Bourbon, sinco ho camu to live in
it, has been fitted up anew. Some of
the drawing-rooms and boudoirs thoro
are so exquisitely furnished as to seem
to cry out for occupants, feminine, fash
ionable and rofinod. Tho silver balh
of de Morney has beon restorod ami is
used by Gambetto. Splendid vases are
filled tvory morning with ro'os in tho
rooms of tho great orator, who is fond
of flowers, and accepts willingly tho
attentions of M. Alphaud, the chief
overseer of tho city parks and pardons.
Trompnt re, formerly the chief 1 the
Duo du Noilles, prepares tho repast of
Gatubetta, his secretaries and tho
friends whom he invites to dcjiiunor
or dinner. I believe that Gatubetta
honestly, If very erroneously, imagined
that this display of luxury woula add
to his prestige It has alien ated foin
him the hard-working democracy of
Paris, of whom he was for mitny years
the undoubted tribuno, shocked peoplo
of olevute'd sontlmont. nnd drew toward
bliu, with the precipitous violenooof
the incoming wave of the Spring tide,
a crew of irroedy self-seekers, eager to
mount on his shouldors to .wealth and

Water as Pnnl,
Many efforts have been made to ose
water as fuel, but in most cases the
forco gained has boen at too great a
cost of force to render tho process
availablo. The components of water,
hydrogen anil oxygen, when dissociated
are powerful forces. Tho groat prob
lem has boen to decompose wator into '
its elements by the una t f ho little force
as to give a great advantage from tho
combustion of the components. Dr.
Charles Holland has suuceodod in de
composing water by a process so simplo
that it revolution is promised in rooiivo
powor. The ilecoiuposiiiim has boon
effected by tnking. advantage of the
strong aflhiily of oxygen for carbon.
Decomposed water lias already been
used in a locomotive engine on the ,
Long Island Railroad. An old coal
bumor was employed, but the (condi
tions wcro not such as to give the best
So much confidonco was created in
the efficacy of tho process that a loco
motive is being built at Patorson, N.
J., especially adapted to tho use of the
now fuel. Just insido the furnace door
aro four retorts, two to contain wator
and two nap tho. Under them is a met
al pan. Into this motal pan a small
quantity of naptha is poured and set on
tiro when the locomotive is to be started.
The burning naptha raises steam in the
water retorts and converts part of the
nnpthi in the othor retorts into vapor.
The steam rushes into the naptha ro
torts and by tho gront alliuity of the
carbon of naptha vapor for oxygen, a
chemical change occurs and thoro is
formed light carbonatod hydrogen, car
bonlo oxide and free hydrogen. Thi9
gas passes from the retorts to feeding
pipes which occupy the place of the us
ual lire grates; from these pipes pro
ceed small burners, each with an aper
ture of a hundredth of an inch, aud a
thimble-like cap with apertures near
tho escaping hydrogen. This arrange
ment brings to the burning hydrogen
oxygen from atmospheric air, produ
cing nearly tho satuo effect as the oxy
hydrogen blowpipe. Tho heat of this
flamo is 8.000 degrees Centigrade.
Hundred of tlieso burners are scattered
over tho space of the ordinary fire-grate.
This beat is applied to tho boiU-r by
moans of copper lines. .
WJien the heat from the combustion
of the dissociated hydrogen becomes
sufllcicnt it docs tho work of boating
the retorts to produco itself. This fact
is what puzzles the sticklers for the law
of the conservation of energy. But as
dissociation occurs at a temperature of
400 degrees Centigrade, a flame of 8,000
degrees Centigrade is sufficient to ac
complish this with an enormous forco
to spare. Whon steam is raisod In tho
boiler it is supplied to the naptha re
tort direct, instead of being generated
in tho retort at first employed, thus sav
ing so much energy. The uso of thia
fuel does away with smoke and cinders.
Tho products of combustion passing
through the smoko stack would sot
blacken the whitest hanilkorchief.
The buildors of this locomotivo havo
the utmost conlidonee iu its success. It
is now nearly completed, nnd a trial
may soon bo expected, if tho expori
meut succeeds, its importance cannot
bo overestimated. Jluchestet' Dcwo
craL A Cat Taking To Water.
I was standintr by the banks of the
Thames nt IIalliford waiting for my
boat, which was being got ready by tho
boy, when the head boatman canio up
to me, saying, "Did you ever soe a cnt
swim bofore, sir P and on my turning
round, I saw a largo yellow and white
cat swimming about in a narrow strait
of water which divided an island to
which tho bouts wcro moored from tho
mainland, and iippnrontly enjoying the
refreshing exercise. This cat, which
I had often before noticed in tho fish
punts ami boats, I found, ou inquiry, is
in tho habit of swimming every morn
ing from the main t.-mil to tho island,
where it visits tlio lisliitig-punts, pick
ing up any unfortunate fish who may
have made his escape out of tho well,
and searching for rats which abound on
the Island; and ho thou commits him-
solf again to tho water, and returns
homo. Tho morning after I first saw
him swimming, I determined to try to
witness it again, and I arrived by tho
water-side just in tinio to see him re
turu fmni bis morning hunt,' he canio
to tho water's edge, and aftor having
dipped his front paws into the water,
ho launched forth, his logs only boing
immersed, while his whole body was
out of wafer, Ids tail boing croct in tho
air like the mast of a ship.
Kinging Engine Bells by Steam,
Railroad men just now are greatly In
terested in a novel applianco to loco
motives whereby the heretofore labori
ous task of ringing the boll at crossings
and whilo approaching towns and vil
lages, which has devolved upon tho fire
man to tho manifest .nogloct, in many
instances, of his other duties, will be
automatically performed by 6teaia
power, easily regulated nud con
trolled. The dovice consists merely of
a small cylinder containing a revolving
piston, connected directly with the boll
yoke by moans of a shaft The motion
is regulated bv a valve and cut-off, so
ail justed that, by a slight movement, it
is thrown off tho center and instantly
sot in motion. Tho boll then rings
continuously until checked by a similar
slight movement. It is in constant
readiness for use, steam boing on con
tinually aftor the firing of the engine,
and is thus instantaneously available in
cases where it Is desirable to give warn
ing. The device is easily applied to
locomotives, of whatever mako. There
aro districts in tlio West through which '
for miles tho firomen are required by
law to ring their bolls conUnuously.and
at the same time are obliged to Veep,
thoir fixes np to the required standard. ,
