A Cheap Electric Pen.-A description has been given by Dr. J. Garel of a simple way to make an electric pen, to he used for :multiple:'copying ofrlettcrs"or"drawings;to the,same effect, as thesomewhat costly Edison pen. L : A tracing of the drawing to be copied is t'iken:on-thin paper, whichsis thden laid fiioil a piece of common gas carbon. The larger the carbon in proportion to the paper, the less'shiftinigwill be required; but a piece of reasonably convenient size may be easily found, and-it-shouldtbe ground to a fair sur face.u3-The Illite of carbon thus prepared is to be connected with one of. the screws of a small inductionicoil, suchli as that used for an electric bell; The style for following the design, says a contemporary, is nothing more than a lead pencil, rather hard and brought to a fine point.-,The other end of the lead of the pencil is connrieted' by a wire with the other screw of the induction coil, which in turn is, coiitected- with a 'suitable battery.

DAYS OF CRIME YEARS OF SUFFERING AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY. Reprinted from "The Australasian" of 1867 by special permission.) CHAPTER. XXII. SUSPECTED, BUT GUILTLESS. Seven happy months flew swiftly by;   my pupils were a source of constant inter- est to me, and were as docile and loveable as heart could wish. Their progress was most encouraging to me, and their parents were more than satisfied with the results of my tuition. Those seven months were the happiest and best-employed of all the months that I have lived. But a change was near at hand, and this bright vista in my existence was fast being closed upon by the old dark shadows. A horse was always placed at my dispo-   sal, and when I could spare time, I was in the habit of taking a ride through the coun- try round about. On one of these occa- sions I called at a shepherd's hut which was situated at the foot of some ranges about ten miles distant from the public house. The hutkeeper was a shipmate of &...
