An 13ngtuoorln;r Foat lu-India.
Tho attention of tho engineering world
le enid to ho. just now flxod upon tho
Bombay presidonoy in India, whero ia
hoing constructed ono of tho greatest
pieces of solid masonry tho world baa
Boen in modern times. AB'tho present
water supply of Bombay dependa upon
dofootivo works, a hugo dam has boon
designed to Inclose tho watershed of tho
valloy which drains into tho noa south
of Bombay. Solely with tho aid of na
tivo labor Engineer Glover, a Scotchman
by birth, bogan thia gigantic Btruoturo,
which, it ia expected, "will bo completed
in March noxt. it ia 3 miles long, 118
foot in height and 108 feqt wldo at tho
baso. Tho roadway on tho top is to bo
24 fooC^ln^jdd'Cli/ and tho Btono work
will coot lu>lf a, million sterling.
Tho lake of water which this dam will
imprison will bo eight square miles in
area, so that Bombay noou bo nuder no
apprehension onco tho viceroy has offi
cially declared tho aluicce open and tho
pipes of sixty milos long aro in working
ordor. Mr. Glover has 12,000 Hindoos,
nil of whom ho has trained to tJbis ?peoial
work, omployed on tho dam. To his
thirty years' labor among tho natives is
duo tho faot that thoro aro in India to
day 000,000 mou, all. capable stono

havo boon omployed on his contracts for

Cool Work-by a Robber.
A . man of commanding nppoarnnco,
about 28 years of ago nnd nicely drcased,
stopped at tho rosidonco of Georgo Hot
tel, a farmer, who lives south of Mas
coutah, Friday morning, and asked for a
breakfast, which ho said ho was willing
to pay for. Whilo tho farmer was pre
paring breakfast tho stranger pocketed
n gold watch and a small amount in
money which woro lying on a bureau
in an fidjuiniug bedroom. Mi', tiottei
subsequently wont to tho room and dis
covered tho theft; Ho charged tho gen
tlemanly stranger with having thorn,
?-and tho latter promptly covered him
keep his mouth shut on penalty or being
Tho farmer'Bwifo then attempted to
assist her husband out of bia predica
ment, but was promptly knocked down
hy the Btranger, who made 1 lotte 1 ' and
his wife elt opposite him nt tho table,
with their hands behind them, whilo ho
quietly enjoyed hie breakfast. Having
appeased his appetite ho coolly shook
hands with the farmer and his wife, bado
them an affectionate farawell, took to
tho woods with his plundor and has not
boen heard from.-St. Louis Republic.
Deserting Iceland. -
They hovo been taking A census in
Iceland recently, and they are in trouble
thoro, too; but their trouble is not about
tho congressional roprosontation. It ia
something oven moro serious. It ap
pears that so great has boen the hegira
to Canada and tho United States it has
talton away from tho island fully 20,000
people. This does not scorn suoh a very
large number, except when ono consid
ers that tito original population was only
, About.80,000. One-fourth of tho ontiro
population thon has emigrated I Tho re
sult is disastrous. Taxes have boon
greatly increased, whilo properties have
becomo reduced in valuos. Tho har
vests, too, havo bcGh greatly loosened.
Thero Booms to bo but ono w? y out for
tho Icelanders. Thoy must all follow
tho vanguard and abandon their island
to tho walrus and bear. Perhaps a few
centuries hence somo Professor Horsford
will discover ovldonco of human habita
tion at somo pro-historio ago in Iceland.
An installation for tho purpose of
plowing tho lana by ol oct r J o motors has
boon sot up on tho proporty belonging to
tho Marquis de la Laguna. Tho power
of a waterwheel of somo twenty horso
power will bo employed, and tho implo
mont for working tho land is expected to
work at a dietanco of throe miles from
tho generating dynamo. So far as the
electrical plant is concerned nil is right,
but a deficiency of mechanical and agri
. cultural knowlodgo on tho part of those
intrusted with tho work Booms likely to
; -?nico i)ii.,-f rial n failure, Tills Jo much
to bo regretted, as tho promoters of tho
experiment havo boen fortunato in Und
ina a landowner who is disposed to maleo
a trial of such an important application
A SXlUtoiy Hear Forage?.
Tho regimental bear of tho Seven
teenth lancers, which has recently come
to England wi th his regiment, took fur
lough without permission and started
out to inspect B he vu oliffe, much to tho
alarm of tho inhabitants. Bruin first
supped off two chickens, and then
walked over some, cottage roofs, refus
ing flatly to return homo for-all the
coaxing of his mtHtary keepers. Tho
animal noxt modo off across country,
and whilo a search party were look
ing for him everywhoro in despair ho
qulotly returned te camp of his own &o
Why tho ?od Flag Flew.
A red flag, flying from tho rigging of
tho steamship Knutsford, which arrived
at Now York a fow days ago from Liver
pool, was an object of interest to all Ves*
sola that passed near her mooringa in
Grayosond bay. Thoro wore 14,000
pounds of dynamite stored in tho hold of
tho Knutsford, and tho least jar. might
havo exploded tho dangerous cargo and
blown tho vessel to pieces.-Now Ycirk
