The latest marvel In electrical Inven
tions Is that of telegraphing from Scot
land to the Island of Mull by Induc
tion, that Is, without any wire connect
ing the stations. The principle Is not
a new one, but hitherto its application
has been limited to short distances
through the earth or water. In the
case reported it was successfully used
at long distances through the air. If
this can bo inado feasible important
changes in telegraphic and telephonic
systems are Inevitable. Tho disappear
ance of the unsightly and dangerous
wires would be welcome on many ac
counts. It is probable that tho report pent
from Pueblo to Canada to tho effect
that pleuro-pneumonia exists among
cattle in the southwestern states Is, as
department oflicials believe, a mere
echo of the report that the disease ex
isted in Kansas. That report, how
ever, was shown to be without founda
tion in fact. Canadian oflicials may
watch very carefully all cattle Import
ed from the United States, but it is
not probable that they will discover
pleuro pneumonia, for investigations
by the department of agriculture, it is
claimed, have failed to show the ex
istence of a single case of that disease
in this country in the last two years.
A dime of 1829 is worth but its face
value, from the purchaser's stand
point; dealers charge for such from 25
cents to 60 cents. A dime of 1839 or
one of 1840 is worth to sell but for its
face value. The dime of 1839 having
on the obverse the letters O. P. is sold
by dealers at from 30 to 65 cents. A 3
cent piece of 1867 sell3 for 75 cents to
$1; dealers pay from 20 to 35 cents for
such. A half-franc of 1861 has no spe
cial value. Dealers do not purchase half
dollars of 1829, but sell them tor 75
cents to l. Where the figure 29 is
stamped over the 27 the charge is from

Some "things about the administration
of city affairs in Boston may not be
all that they should be, but the pro
posal to do away with the city council
will not better the matter. It will only
place the government further from the
people. The danger of corruption is
always increased when power is con
centrated in few hands. Such power
naturally tends to concentration, and
this tendency is one that ought to be
discouraged instead of being fostered
by legislation. If the people have not
enough public spirit to keep the ofli
cials honest when they have the right
of self government, there will be no
improvement by taking tne poer irom
them. The political bosses who will
rule by autocratic power will be then
subject to no restraint.

Low Water In th Lake.
Lake levels are plavinff some pecu

reports of low water made since the
oneninir of navigation it would seem
as If tho mean lake levels are a foot
below tho ordinary stage. Thus far
this season continued northerly winds
have kent un tho stairo of water in
Chicago harbor to its usual height, but
at tho foot of Lake Micnigan me urop
is reported from two to three feet,
more especially in Urecn Kay, where
it is said to be four feet. At both tho
Wclland canal and the St. Mary's
eanal the limit of draft is materially
reduced. Continual strandings on
Crosse Pointe, in Detroit river, have
