Indeed. Bishop Potter believes that
he cause of religion would be bene
fited if more doors were open ou
Sunday. He would open libra nr.
museum and pict nre gallery doors on
that day. Any door, all doers, in
deed, which lead men lo a deeper and
broader understanding of the story of
the world, are suitable doors to open
on Sunday, for within fhem is to be
found that which furnish ot the nobler
and the worthier education of man
and leads to the highest education of
all, which is his spiritual education."'
This view must find a widespread
response as beiug at once fair minded
and liberal. While uo harm will re

which It lays and takes np rails aa It

by steam, and tbe exhaust trill furnish
warmth for the travelers. Atttacbed to
the engine will be a cab which will
carry provisions, for the exploring
party. Prof. Damaskin, the Inventor,
says that he will start from Kpitxcn
bergen ami run for tbe north polo at
the rate of thirty miles an hour, expccV

Tbe adoption throughout the aoat h
of the roller eottod rnmprre, which by
a process simple In principle, and using
no more power than ia required for tha
plantation bale, will, H ta anticipated,
become very general, the capacity of
the apparatus being equal to turning
lot a bale of less balk, greater density,
and of more even and smooth eaterfc
than the large steam compresses amaae.
The Invention b expected to take the
place of both the plantation press ot
to-day and the big compeeaaea scat

for the ordinary plantation press, ft

and expense of unloading and reload

middlemen altogether. The amoant ot
money that b paid oat annually for
aumpressing tbe bales after they have
