Danger of MIotors. Another of our councillors ap pearled disturbed at the council meeting on Tuesday week over the speed at which motors travel over Bay Street. Cr. Gill said the'coun cil would make a by-law or do some thing after somebody was killed, when it was too late. Cavs some times travelled at 30 or 40 miles an hour, and he thought a aspeed limit should be fixed. Cr. Crichton added that three or 'four prosecutions should have followed on what he saw that week. The present law regard ing motors places no restriction on the pace at which a driver might travel in circumstances where no risk to life is involved, but distinctly directs the responsibility to the mo torist, by making him liable for "driving at a pace dangerous to the public, having regard to all the cir eumstances."

The edge of a very keen razor, when examined under a good mi croscope, appears as broad.as the back of a thick knife, rough, uneven, and full of notches. An exceedingly small and delicate needle similarly scrutinised, re sembles a rough bar from a smith's forge.
