Mr. L. A. Currey has returned from a
trip to Prince Edwaril island, and accord

niost interesting and novel imaginable,

were about three days going across from
Pictou to Georgetown " uniH fr r'.,-
"and we had a splend.d opportunity of see
ing how communication is kept up in win

mainland, as required under the terms of
cum rue roil ion.
"I'util about thre.! years ago. as you
know, communication with the islaud in

"When the Northern Lihr VflB run

jwuucuuer siue 01 t ie strait by teams,
which transferred tin
and freight to the shore, and an old res-

the Nineteenth centuiy, was laughed at
wuru ue prnpnesieu mat within a few
years a steamer would !e built that could
make the complete passage from shore to
shore. The idea seemed well nigh impossi

been realized much sooner than even he
could have believed possible, and the same
captJiin which ran the greenheart North

steel Stanley from shore to shore.
CUE AT SPEED NECESSARY.
"The Stanley was built especially for
this service by the Don.iniou government.
She is uecesarily very si rongly constructed
of steel, the plates being of great thickness.
She has a sharp bow, acd is wedge shaped
on the bottom. When you see her lving at
the wharf, surrounded by solid ice, "which,
as I said, extends for s-veral miles from
the shores, you would think that there was
no chance for her to mere. But she is fit

heavy screw propeller tue ice has to give
way before her.
"In a little while she gf ts up quite a speed,
and, cutting, crashing and crouching
through the solid ice, turning furrows
sometimes np and sometimes down, the
steamer proceeds on her voyage, very
quickly working her way out to the clear
water, or to the part of the strait where the
heavy field ice drifts do-vn from the Gulf
of St. Lawrence. It is here that she ex
periences the most difficulty, or it may be
said the only difficulty in making her regu
lar trips, for while she cuts through the
solid board ice steadily at the rate of al
most ten knots an hour, her progress is
often greatly impeded ty the heavy drift
ice, which is often fiftevn to twenty feet
deep in the water, and which therefore in

Boast Apples for Sere Eyes.
Roasted apples have the r special uses.
the most important of then being the use
to which they are put in our hospitals in
the making of poultices lor the relief or
cure of inflamed eyes. Son e nurses prefer
a raw apple, simple rotten, applied with
out any intervening substance to the eye.
Others peel the fruit ratter thickly, and
from the peeling cut an oval niece, and
after roasting it until qui-e soft bind it
upon the eye, the inside of the peeling
touching the inflamed Dirt. For a sty
upon the eyelid nothing is more sootbiniz
than an apple poultice. Detroit Free
