COMPLETION OF THE LONGEST TUNNEL IN THE WORLD A diHpauh from Berno, Switzerland, itnnonncos that tbe work of piercing Mount St. Gothurd waa satixlactorily completod at 'Jo clock on numlity morn in4, l'ubruury 2Uth, 18S0, amid great ri'iuiuiiiL'a. 1 he contract tor tbo con Btrnctlon ol tho St. Gotbard tunnel was awarded to II. Louis Kiivrc, of Geneva, oh AufjuBlTth, 1Hi2. It wtw one ot tbo conditions ol tbe contract that the perforation should boeotmilotod witbiu eight yeara from tbat date, with a largo premium in case ot tho completion ol the work in a shorter time, and with a not leas lieu vy penalty in cbho of do- lay. It will be seen, tliorelbro, that tho contractor has kept insido of his limit by some months, ilia opinion. that thoi parfrtratinn tmnlri h annotn. pliHhotl in a considerably less period. would doubtlues haro been justibed but lor tbe lact that prouress was iio quontly impeded by tbo caving in ol the roek and by the eruption of wator from tho fissures in the strata. Despite these dilficultiea, which were sometimes serious, and always great consumers ol lime, Al. huvro bus tbo satisfaction of having horod tbo longest tunnel in the world by over a mile in less time by over live years than was required to boro tho ilont Ccnis tunnel, now tho second greatest work of tbo kind. This rapid achievement is a triumph lor the improved drilling machinery ol modern invention which has been em ployed npon tbo St. Gothard tunnel from the beginning. Comparison ol tbo tbreo lurgcxt tunnels shows that Mont Ccnis, length H mile, letta a few yards, cost $ 15,UUU,000,wn constructed in tbe thirteen years from 1857 to 1870; tho lloositc tunnel, 'Si miles, cost $13,0110,000, was finished in eleven years from tho timo tho work was properly begun ; and tbo St. Gothard, length 01 miles, has been borod in less than seven years and a half. The contract prices sum up tho total osti malo cost ol e"J,700,000. This amount was to cover all expenses, whothor direct or accessory, and all risks and contingencies from whatever cause arising, II tins partot tno contract is held to, tho St. Gothard will be much tho ebeupest of the threo tunnels in cost of construction, in addition to its other and sutlicieut distinctions. Tbo project of tunneling Mount St. Gothard may be said to have grown out of tho successful piercing of Mont Ccnis. L'ntil that work was accom plished, most of tbo travel and trans, port of merchandise between Italy and fSwitr.orland, Northeastern Franco, Woslern and Central Germany and Northern Enropo were accomplished over the Alpine passon, which had their northern termini in Switzerland. Tims tho threo great carriage roads, tho Simplon, tho tSlugen and the til. Gothard, innnopoliced by fur the larger part of tho transit, though other loss notable passes, and particularly that of tho Al on t Cents, mai utained an active competition. The opening ol tbo Mont Coma tunnel in 1870 put an end to the profitable monopoly of the Swiss high ways, and was a serious blow to both Italy and Switzorland. The lact wits recognized at onco that something must bo dono to open a now and diroct railway routo across tho Alps. Tho flint proposal was to follow tho lino ql tho bimlon road, and not only waa n company formed, but the work of grad ing was begun in acnordanoe with that plan. It became evident, however, that the Simlon route would not ac complish what Italy and Switaerland desired, sinco it would be, liko the Mont Conis road, directly tributary to the interests of France. That projoct was abandoned, and tho choice then lay between theSplugen and St. Goth ard routes. The Ibrmer reqnired a tunnol ol only four miles in length, and was much favored on that account ; but tho fatal objection waa that, like the Simlon road, it must pass down the Valley of tho Upper llliino and along tho Austrian frontier, honco be ing liablo to interruption and control by a hostile force in the evont of Euro pean complications from which Switz erland should not bo able to koep froo, as a neutral, Tha St. Gothard route bad a nine-mile tunnel to be bored, but it had tho advantage, chief ot all In the Interests of tho countries which proposed to construct it, of beginning id the very heart of the Swiss Con fed oracy, passing wholly on Swiss soil, far removed from tho castorn and western frontiers, to Lago Maggiore and the Lake of Lugano, where connections would bo made with tec Italian lines and the port ot Genoa. For these reasons tho St. Gothard lino was adopted, and in 1H71 the Swiss, Italian and German Govorn menu concluded a treaty determining tbo poiuts relativo to tba routo, con struction and connections. The threo contracting powers agroed to contribute to tbo enterprise. 86,000, 000 francs, as follows : Italy, 4r(000, 000 ; Switzerland, 20,000,000 ; Ger. many, 20,000,000. The Italian and Swiss Railway Companies held a con leronce, a company was organized, and in 1M7'A, aa otHtnH, M Pavr mmu ike successful bidder among; those who proposed to undertake the construction. In tho Fall ot 1872, the plans and preparations having boon completed, the actual work was begnn. The oross suction of the St. Gothard is (he tame as that of tho Frojus or Mout Conis tnnnol, and the same technical meth ods ot excavation wore followed. The engineer possessed several advantages, however, over the engineer ot tho Mont Conis line. II o had the exporienoe of that groat work as a guido ; improved and tested machinery from the start; whereas machinery was not employed in the Mont Cenis at all until the fifth yoar of the construction, and the use of dynamite and other explosives not known until the Mont Cenis waa tar advanced. It was possible, moreover, to sink a considerable numbor of shafts along tho lino of the St. Gothard in caso it bocamo nocossary, but tha oc casion did not arise. Very litllo hard labor was employed; almost none after tbo first two years, the Dubois Francis perforators were first used, making an avorago advance of 6.63 lineal loot per day. They wero aaoceeded by Fer- rnnv'a anif tli. riailv arlvanf-M . In. nreaned In 10 11 font. Th.n f 1, a m. I chines of two or threo inventors were placed and worked together on the same carriage, to tost their capacity. My thiol mean the utmost oi tha ad vance possible was secured, and experi mental result were obtained which will be of groat value in further enter prises ot tunnoling. It ia estimated that rovetement waa neeessary for about one half tho longth of the tun nol. The difficulties in the way of caving ana oi water eruptions were much groater than wore met with in the prosecutions of tha work on the Mont Conia routo, which was specially free from iprlngs. lTp to January 1, 1877, the heading of tha SL Gothard, which was driven on the top abnnt CLEARFIELD, citrlit foot snuare, bad been carried 18, 238 foot, and it was then predicted that the tunnel would be completed in tbo Hummer of 187U. - The line of the tunnel loaves the St. Gotbard carriage road to the left at Alrolo, passes northwest under the Itastulhorn, the St. Anna glacier, tho village of Andormatt, the river Reusa at about the Dovil's liridge, and comes out at Goschonon, at the level oi tbat villnge and tba carriage road. The St. Gothard Railway will form tho shortest line of transit between tbe Valley of the Rhine and the Moditer raneaji, and it baa been well said that when the geographical relations of the countries t aorvea to connect aro con. sidored, togothor with the vast political. military and commercial interests which will bo affected by it, it may Bulely bo characterized as tbe great artery ol Avurujiue... iutiuubiuuai mu and circulation, and as the most im portant work of material improvement yet projectod on tbat continent. POLITENESS BY THE BOOK. One of tbe most common complaints against children ia tba they aro lack ing in good manners. The laot that many ot the complainors aro porsons who would not be selected aa models ot perfection in etiquette has nothing to uo witn it. it is oiton tne caso mat very rude and impolito adults spend much of their time in snarling at children and telling thorn to "behave." Tbe injunction to "behave1' is some times accompanied with a emack and at othor times only with tho promise of ono. Perhaps those disagreeable persons who vox tbo children into fruitless endeavors at reformation of oonduct aro tbomselvos deeply sensible of thoir own shortcomings. Having boon negloctod in their youth, and, it trainod at all, trained in some other way than that in which they should have gono, they want to see tho rising generation made models of true polite ness, hoi id eomlort may now bo min istered to the souls of persons who are woary with tho worry of trying to make youngsters behave themselves. It will cheer these worried souls to know that organized effort has tukun slin.io in St. Louis to reform children by rule and compass from tho ways of unruly boorwbiioiia. 1 ho school Hoard of that city bus resolved to add a course of lessons in etiquette to tba regular curriculum of the pnblio schools Manuals of politeness are to bo furn ished, and some of tho boot readers will road aloud from these, tbe teachor lollowing in a brief oral exposition with practice in the various branches. Tbe studios in etiquette are to cover a wide range. General precepts aro to be particularized into auch details aa dress, carriago and bearing, conversa tion, table mannora, riding and driving, school deportment and tho rules of be havior laid down by George Washing ton. Thore can hardly be a more en larged field for study and practice than this involves ; nor ia there any field of education in which there is greater scope for the ingenuity of tbe urbane teachor. Much deponda on the teacher, and far more on bor man ner than on the matter of her instruc tion. A teacher who undertakes to "hear a recitation" in politeness, after tho wooden manner in which a large proportion of the recitations are "hoard," will make tho thing intensely ridiculous. An acidulous ponton whoso habit ia to enforce lessons by scolding them into tho children will make her victims hate politonese and despise tbe vory nome of it. The Instructor who drills tbe classes in tho mere observ ance of polite forme and phrases may succeed in rescuing tbe aubolara from the extremity of boorinhneaa, but will fail in imparting to them any of the graces of genuine good breeding. The teacher whose custom it la to bark and bito at tho poor chidrua iu ordor to drive instruction into their unwilling minds will find himself a laughing stock aa be roads off from his politeness book some pleasant injunction to courteous demeanor. Thoro is a grual deal of so-called politeness which is only of the books, bookish. It is stilted, empty, formal and unsatisfactory. It is well that children spoak when tboy are apokon to, do as thoy are bidden, salute their betters in an elegant manner, koep their persons cloan and do unto others as thoy would have others do to them. But tbe mechanical ritual of all these things may be made a con tinual horror. Some teachers and parents keep childron in a constant state of worry by saying, aa thoy twoak the ears of the poor creature or with the knuckle rap thorn on tbe head : "Sit up, thore I" or "Behave now, will yon ?" Many otherwise exoellent poo plo introduce this sort of etiquette drill at the table, until the rigorous way in wbicb the lambs are made to bleat out "please" and "thank you" is enough to destroy the appetite ot anybody who S radices and values true politonoas. ucoesa or fuilure in teaching politeness depends more on wholher tbe teacher is or is not polite, than on the particu lar manna) of etiquette whioh a School Hoard mar select. There are fine arts and true graces in real politeness which somo boors can never master. There is a refinement and an elegance in it which is inborn with many people. If instruction in the art is attempted with the right spirit and the proper aort of people there ia hope that it may be moasuiably successful. ' But there are some crusty and ill favored impartcrs ot instruction who should forever be excused from all attempts at teaching tne doctrines orpractioee ot etiquette. Philadelphia Timet.

"Yon have traveled much and aeon many ruins," said Humboldt, taking Taylor's hand at parting. "Now you have aeon one ruin more." "Not a ruin," Taylor replied, "but a pyramid."

(From tho Carldl (Nor.) Appeal, It was nearly twontv years ago when Dan Do Quillo and Mark Twain at tempted to start a raperin Mondocino oounty. They tqok the type and material of their recently del u net estab lishment in Han Francisco, and loading the stuff on a big wagon, struck out into tbe country to retrieve their tor. tune. They packed tholr type just as it stood In the lorms, tiod uu tne articles with stout cords by a process well known to printers, and, packing them closely in boxes, vowod to estab lish a newspaper somewhere whioh ovum uw riitr amu'i eAuuuun. s politics and history of the Pacific (Joast. Had not an unlortunale circum stance taken place, It ia evident that tbe newspaper which they contem plated founding would have beon alive to-day. J heir ourney over tbe moun tains was utterly uneventful until thoy reached Simpson 'a Station, a spot well known to old travolora on tbat routo. lloro thoy mot a party of emigrants making fur Lower California, and the hitter had with them a small mountain howitzer which they had brought with them across the plains. iwain took a great lancy to this gun, and ottered titty dollars lor It.wilb two kegs of powdor. The emigrants were glad enough to part with it, lis they concluded the time lor its us had passed. Dan thought tho purchase ol tho artillery and military supplies was a reckless piece ot extravagance, and said as much, but Mark replied; "When we start oar paper wo must llro a salute. A nowspapor office with artillery lias a big bulgo on tbo bust noss. .No well-regulated office in Cal ifornia should be without t. howitzer. If a man comes In for a retraction, we can blow him into the next county. tho howitzor iroos. Thissilenced argument, and the next day the two journalist took tho road with their printing outfit and artillery. The next night they camped in a mountain ravine, fifteen miles trom Simpson's, and, after building the usual camp firo, fell asleep. About eleven o'clock the horses wakened them by prancing about, and tbe two journalists wero led to tho conclusion that a party of Indians was making arrangements for a night attack. Jn the clear moon light human forms could bo distin guished about half amilo away, at the toot of tho ravino. The idea of encoun tering Indians had never entered the beads of tbe two fortune-seekers, and they had no arms. Suddenly Twain brightened up, remarking: "i ne howitzer r "We've got nothing but powdor," said Dan. "Well, powdor'II scara 'em ; and we'll load Lor up." ine piece waa immediately loaded wltb a trootl blur vharo:o. and tbo two men felt quite certain that tho Indians, lioaring tho roar of the gun, would boat no unconditional retreat. The piece was hardly loaded and pluood in position wbon about forty redskina came charging up the ravine. 1 wain seized a brand trom the camp fire and was about to lay it on tbo touch-hole, when Dan yelled "Hold on I" as ho rammed something into the mouth of tho piece and remarked : " Turn er loon. Tho roar of the howitzer echoed through the lonely forest, and the sav age, with frantio cries of pain, roolod down the ravino in wild confusion. "What in h I did you put in 7" asked Mark.
