added with all duo resnect to the

Now that President Cleveland's
Venezuelan commission has been ap
pointed and is ready to go to" work.
niiuential London papers, including
i lie j irnes, are asking wnv not invite
h.ngjnnd to appoint a like commis
sion to act in cooperation with that
appointed here? England, it is af
firmed, would be glad to appoint
sucn a commission, it invited to, and
no doubt is felt that the two, working
together, would be able readily to fix
upon a boundary line between en
ezuela and Hritisb Guiana that all
parties would readily and joyfully
accept. II England had originally
seen the wisdom of meeting the
United States in n friendly attitude,
such as is now suggested, there
would have been no further cause
for trouble. Arbitrato is all the
United States wants and is willing to
abide the consequences.

"We are wide awako, keeping a sharp
lookout, and nil's wclL"
Antananarivo has no lamps nnd no
streets. It is simply a great collection
cf houses tumbled together. Thero is a
big forco of night police, known as the
"watch." The men gathor themselves
together into groups, and choosing sung
corners, wrapping themselves in straw
mats, they drop into long and profound
slumber. Ono member of each group re
mains awake to respond to the half
honrly call from the palace. As ho calls
back, tho others, half awake, mechan
ically shout back tho response. It makes
little difference, however, that tho police
continually sleep, for robbery is rare.

at which sueli an immense ball must
turn iu order to accomplish the feat of
making ouo revolution in a day and a

paco which tho old earth keeps tip year
after year may be had by comparing its
speed to that of a cannon ball tired from
a modern high pressure gnn. The high
est velocity ever attained by such a mis
silo has been estimated at 1.G2G feet per
second, which is equal to a mile in
3 2-10 seconds. The earth, in making

velocity almost exactly equal to that of

It was tho noon hour, and six brawny

raised platform, resting against the
fence, ahey were eating their luncheon
and were joking and laughing to their
