They are before one at every turn, and many of them contaln jioteutlalitlos vaat and much dlscussed. For that very reason It ls well occaslonally to contemplate aome lnvention of the past whleb works un remlttlngly and Ineonsplcuously for the welfare of manklud. Conslder the air brake. How many when they take a Journey by, rail ever take thought of the devlce which stands ready to in Bure aafety from possible accldents? All are so used to sibllant nolse bclow the ears that they never conslder lts portentousness. Yet by this appllca tlon of the power of compressed air tens of tiiousands of llves have been preserved and railroad travel has been made more expcdltlous. All this ls arrant trulsm; not a word of lt but what has been said scores of tlmes be? fore. But we llke to dwell upon the air brake as one of those typleal ln? ventlons which are dolng thelr work falthfully and humbly while recent creatlons get the glory and applause.

"Thon" ls the word which has been euggested for use as ou English pro noun of common gender, n luxury which tho English languago has thus far had the fortltude to forego. It was consldered sultable for English be eause it came from the Greck. Its use may be lllustrated ns follows: If a parent deslres to spank tbon's (his or her, as the case may bc) chlld thon (he or she) shouid take thon (him, her or lt) across thon's knee. Then thon should remove thon's sllpper, and after explalniDg to the chlld the repre henslblllty of thon's conduct thon should apply the sllpper to that por tion of thon's anatomy which from time lmmemorlal has been dedlcated to tbat purpose. It may easlly be seen from the above how "thon" effects great clarlflcatlon.? Llpplncott's. ln Praiae of the Eakimoa.

He assures us that they have no rellglon. yet he descrlbes them as destitute of vice and ready to share thelr last meal with the hungry. He thlnks lt would be impos Blble to Chrlstlanlze them, but they al ready possess the cardinal graces of falth. hope nnd charlty, for "without them they could never survlve the six months' nlgbt and the other rlgors of thelr home."
