For half an hour the engine puffed energetically, but the train did not start. At last tbe pas sengers grew discouraged and got off to see what the matter was. They found that the fireman bad run out of fuel, having used bis last stick of : wood. Accordingly tbe trainmen and passengers went off Into tbe woodr. i picked up fallen limbs and logs, drag- ' ged them up to tbe track and loaded them Into the tender.

RUSSIA'S GRÈAT PLAN. WILL CONNECT BALTIC AND BLACK SEAS. The Largest Ship Cnnel In the World Will Make tha Csar Mmster of Bumps and Asia. Soon be Begun—Its Aim to (Special Letter.) OW that the trans Siberian Railway is far advanced toward completion, Russian the govern (mm' uJilfr ment is planning 1lAT(P*V( 1 another great w9* scheme, which will ÇjJ*&** 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 of 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 qaval 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 bis Majesty the Czar is never so warm and concili 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 for Prit rli try ' 'i % I Unaburo rnTltr t Moicm •% ft*LfrJ Afmsht <S Bobruiik K « limier 5. fVc —y'tc. '"O MMM 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 dimensions 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 diffi culties of level to be overcome, al though the European watershed sum mit has to be crossed, but this last takes place at one of Its lowest points. The proposed canal's entrance will be on the Gulf of Riga, at tbe mouth of the river Duna. It will follow the course of this river up to a point above Dunsbourg. Then, leaving this valley. It reaches tbe Berezina river by a straight cut and passes through Bab roulsk. 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 colos sal waterway will be something like 1,600 kilometres (about 1,000 miles), and It will be excavated to a depth of 8% metres (about 27 feet). This will allow the largest ironclads to navi gate It Treely from one end to the other. The estimated cost Is put down at £100, 000.000. Its strategic importance does not need demonstration. By the selection of a course running at a safe distance from the frontier it places back of the Russian forces stationed in Poland 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 chipt point of export, while the Immense fields of southern Russia will come into easier connection with the Industrial districts of Poland. There are 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. an Cl »4M rouons. Hunting In Rturmah. Burmah. tho largest province of the Indian Empire, Is a beautiful and Yery varied country, covered In many places with fore6ts which In the month of March are bright with the many colors and sweet with the varying scents of thousands of flowering trees 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 known source among tho snows of Thibet, down to the Bay of Bengal. These rivers during the rainy season (which lasts for a long time) overflow and un their banks and spread over the pfatfMb the flood water of the Irawadl often flowing over the country for hut 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 Uiey, may expect during the rainy season, are prudent enough to build their houses on piles, and the flood waters move but slowly. But one 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 light, being manned according to their size with 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 wild animals, including the elephant, rhin oceros, tapir, buffalo, many kinds of deer, tigers, leopards, and bears. But thé Burmans are an excitable, impul sive and courageous people, and they really seem to enjoy this sport, not- ' withstanding the risks they run. They 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, tfle 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 ill search, not only of excitement, but of to-morrow's dinner. are very spearmen, paddlers, and Arms of Stsrflsh 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 five, 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 tbe mouth, takes up its quarters in the blind extensions of the stomach that pass into the arms. Here It grows, and occasions 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." Fresh and Salt Water. A striking illustration of the differs ent effect of fresh and salt water on the hulls of ships was recently af forded by the steamers which ply on Loch Lomond when undergoing their annual overhaul. The woodwork of the vessels, as usual, showed sigus of 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 Dim« 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 of Arment». (Paris Letter.) Guy de Lusignan, prince of Armenia, Cyprus, and Jerusalem—such is the proud historic title which has descend ed to its present bearer from the chiv alrous De Lusignan of tbe twelfth cen tury, who was the foe of Sultan Sala dln, and the last Christian king of Ar menia.
