OW that the trans Siberian Railway is far advanced toward completion, the Russian govern tnent is planning another grea scheme, which will outrival In political importance the Kiel Canal. It has always been considered by the Russian strategists as a source of great weakness that the naval forces sf the empire should remain divided In such a way that one-half only, either the Baltic or the Black Sea fleet, could be available at one time. Between the north and the south there is no way tor naval concentration, communica tions being blocked in the north by climatic and In the south by political obstructions. In his dealings with his grandmother's government his Majesty the Czar is never so warm and conclll atory as when the Baltic is frozen. To this actual thermometric condition may be ascribed his recent expressed desire for peace in the east. There is a motto in maritime affairs that nothing can be improvised; every thing has to be foreseen. It was with a clear understanding of this truth that the late Czar, Alexander III., gave S if- Wufihaftst THE PROPOSED CANAL. Instructions to his engineers to study the possibilities of a maritime canal to connect the Baltic with the Black Sea; this canal to be constructed with aimensions sufficient for the transit of the largest war vessels. After a thor ough 'study of the various possible roads, one has been selected as the most practical, running, as it does, entirely through Russian territory. On the plan selected there are no great difll culties of level to be overcome, al though the European watershed sum mit has to be crossed, but this last takes place at one ot its lowest points. The proposed canal's entrance will be on the Gulf of Riga, at the mouth of the river Duna. It v.IU follow the course of this river up to a point above Dunsbourg. Then, leaving this valley, It reaches the Berezina river by a straight cut an.d passes through Bab- rouisk. This brings it into the Dnie per, and, following this natural decliv ity, it reaches the Black Sea, opening into a magnificent roadstead below Kerson. The total length of this colo3 sal waterway will be something like 1,600 kilometres (about 1,000 miles), and it will be excavated to a depth of 8Va metres (about 27 feet). This will allow the largest ironclads to navl gate It freely from one end to the other. The estimated cost is put down at 100,- 000.000. Its strategic importance does not teed demonstration. By the selection of a course running at a safe distance from the frontier it places back of the Russian forces stationed in Pbland an unassailable base of operation. Fully protected already by a whole network of fortifications and railways, this canal is intended to act as a feeder for all the war material. As to the con centration of the whole Russian fleet In the Black Sea, this means an abso lute control of Constantinople and the Straits. But if this enterprise is of utmost Importance in a military point of view, It will also prove unquestionably very beneficial to the agricultural and indus trial interests of the country. It places vast grain producing regions in cheap communication with Odessa, the chief point of export, while the immense coal fields of southern Russia will come into easier connection with the industrial districts of Poland. There are reasons, too, to believe that new factories will develop along the canal on account of the cheapness of this new mode of transport. If this scheme has been adopted, there is no doubt that tne Rus sian tenacity will bring it to success. Hunting In Burmah. Burmah, the largest province of the Indian Empire, is a beautiful and very varied country, covered in many places with forests which in the month of March are bright with the many colors and sweet with the varying scents of thousands of flowering trees ' and shrubs. This country is traversed by many rivers the largest of which is the Irawadl, with a course of probably eleven hundred miles from its un known source among the snows of Thibet, down to the Bay of Bengal. These rivers during the rainy season (which lasts for a long time) overflow their banks and spread over the plains, the flood water of the Irawadl often flowing over the country for ten or fifteen miles on either side to a depth of from four to fourteen feet. The in undated villages, however, do not suf fer, as the natives, knowing what they may expect during the rainy season, are prudent enough to build their houses on plies, and the flood waters move but slowly. But ono can easily imagine how unhealthy the flooded country must be, with a great heat and a burning sun. During the time of the floods, all hunting operations are carried on by the natives from boats; these boats, which are very light, being manned according to thslr size with spearmen, paddlers, and steersmen. Hunting in this manner is an occupation of great danger, as It is impossible to guess what animal may be encountered in the flooded country, and Burmah has a long list of wifd animals, Including the elephant, rhin oceros, tapir, buffalo, many kinds of deer, tigers, leopards, and bears. But the Burmans are an excitable, impul sive and courageous people, and they really seem to enjoy this sport, not withstanding the risks they run. Tbey are also anxious to secure a hog or a deer; for although their staple food is rice, which is as cheap as it Is in India, the inhabitants of Burmah eat fish or meat daily, and in all respects live better than the lower classes of India. Therefore, in going out to hunt over the flooded country, these men are in search, not only of excitement, but of to-morrow's dinner. Arms of Starfish Thrown Off. There is found in the Mediterranean and in, adjacent seas a starfish which has been noted to have when young six arms, whilst the adults only have Ave, and sometimes three of these arms are much smaller than the others. Dr. E. von Marenzeller has observed that the arms are actually thrown off, a not uncommon custom of echino derms, while the disc that remains will often bud out fresh arms. The reason for this self-division fie gives as fol lows: "The animals are affected by a certain parasite called Mysostoma, which, passing in at the mouth, takss up its quarters in the blind extensions of the stomach that pass into the arms. Here it grows, and oceasions such in convenience to its host that the latter takes the heroic course of getting rid of the arm in which the parasite re sides. At first the creature is endowed with its full complement of arms, and should parasites get into them all, they will all in turn be dispensed with and re-grown; but most cases only five are thus renewed, and occasionally only three." Freah and Salt Water. A striking illustration of the differ ent effect of fresh and salt water on the bulls of ships was recently af forded by the steamers which ply on Loch Lomond - when undergoing their annual overhaul. The woodwork ot the vessels, as usual, showed signs ot active deterioration, but so well does the fresh water of the loch preserve both iron hulls and boilers from corro sion and pitting that the maker's nama upon the material of one of the vessels built thirty years ago was found intact and perfectly clean and sharp. The inside of the boilers also was found extremely free from the deleterious sea water upon iron and steel is ex coating of any kind. The effect of the actly the reverse of this, but the saline properties of the ocean tend to improve woodwork. The Prince ot Armenia. (Paris Letter.)

' The invention of Alabastine marked a new era in wall coatings, and from the standpoint of the building owner was a most important discovery. It has from a small beginning branched out into every country of the civilized world. The name "kalsomlne" has be come so offensive to property owners that manufacturers of cheap kalso mlne preparations aro now calling them by some other name, and at tempting to sell on the Alabastine com pany's reputation. Through extensive advertising and personal use, the merits of the durablo Alabastine are so thoroughly known that tho people insist on getting these goods and will take no chance of spoil ing their walls for a possible saving of at the most but a few cent?. Thus it is again demonstrated that merit wins and that manufacturers of first-class articles will be supported by tho people. A Michigan girl confessed to her pastor that she had received attention from several young men and that fif teen of them had kissed lien The chief point of this profession seemb to be that there are two mighty lucky young men fn Michigan. At the request of a number of young women living on Kissam street in Cleveland, O., the name of that thor oughfare has been changed by the city board of control to Ellandale avenue. When the street car conductors sang out "Kissam" it had sort of a sound which the men passengers were al ways in danger of mistaking for a com mand if there were any pretty girls in the car.

You are not a good hater unless in your hatred of a man you hate every one he likes and every one who likes him. A young man who loves to smoke a jood cigar bought 2,000 extra fine ci gars and had them insured for their full vajue, smoked thein up and then demanded his insurance, claiming that they hod been destroyed by fire. The insurance company then had the young man arrested for setting fire to his own property, and the same judge ordered that he pay a fine and go to jail for three months. Every other man who gets a mar riage license wants the probate judge to keep the matter a secret. One man recently requested that his license be kept dark for a month. If a man ex pects to get married in publio at a leading church, he insists that the probate judge shall not give away the remarkable fact that he procured a li cense. The fact is that when a man goes to get a license he is the biggest fool on earth, and hasn't sense enough to know how to conduct himself. An old coat is usually found upon an old drinker.

She is bound to be young- because her heart Is young and there is rich, young blood circulating in her veins. She doesn't need cosmetics and face powders and skin-preservers. Pure blood is the only true skill-preserver But when a woman's blood is full of bil- , ious impurities, she can neither look young nor feel young. Her whole constitution is poisoned with bad blood. R permeates ev ery part. It paralyzes the nerve-centres; weakens the stomach; irritates the heart, preys upon the lungs and bronchial tubes. It reduces a woman to a state of weakness, nervousness, irritability, dejection and mel ancholy. Such a woman can't possibly be youthful, no matter what her age may be. She needs the youthfttlness of highly vital, ized blood. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery will give it lo her. It will help any woman lo get back her youth and freshness again.
