v- •.:.. i* Ar Memorial to William Mur&ocfc A" project ltM bsfen started in En *,fSa for erecting1 a public memorial to Willi am Murdock, one of the great est of modern inventors, whose tri nrqphs Include the first primitive loco Jnotire made inEngland. At on early age he was employed ih running Watt stationary engines, and displayed great flkill and'industry in these latiors. His first effort to use steam for the purpose to which it is now so extensively ap- Eondon lied, waa re«fently d^seribed by the Times as follows: "It is related that after ho had got the tirst engine iu the Wheal Union ready for starting, the people in whose house he lodged at Redruth, heard a great noise in the night, and found him in a nightmare hammering at his bedpost and roaring: "Now she goes, lads." It was in 1784, about live years after he went to Cornwall, that Murdock con­ structed at Redrnth a. model of a high pressure engine to run on wheels.

"~1 The steamship Oregon from Liver­ pool arrived in New York in six days ten hours and ten minutes from the time qf starting—the shortest time ever made. The captain says he can make the ocean trip in less than six days. I# he cannot, there is no doubt that some other cap­ tain can and will perform the exploit very IfOOE. It.is difficult to conceive how travel­ ing can be made a great deal more lux nrious than at present. That with fast trains, elegant dining and sleeping cars, together with unnumbered comforts, as, compared with former times, there would seem to be little cause for com­ plaint of anything except the changes, rod those are constantly growing less. Cholera is reported at Alexandria,. Egypt, and several cases on a troop-ship at Portsmouth, England. These things confirm the predictions of the probable spread of the dread disease that were made last year, over their own signa­ tures, by numbers of leading physicians. Prom the ports of England to the United States is bu...

Lulu Cameron was the most unsel­ fish mortal, or she never would have stayed at home from the steamer excur sion, to which Gerald Rogers had invi­ ted her, simply to wait upon her little eiok sitfter Aimee. She had looked forward to the day with such evident pleasure had pleased herself with the thought that her boat­ ing costume would be just the suit to .wear, and that it was most becoming to her and not the least of her enjoyment would bo tire fact that Gerald had invi­ ted her instead of May Blanchard or Aliee Allbright.her former schoolmates who were madly in love with the bright and genial clerk, who was home from the "big city" on his summer vacation. But poor little Aimee, who had been an invalid from birth almost, was Lulu's idol, and her increased illness had so worn upon her patient mother, that Lulu, as much as she had anticipated from the day's enjoyment, had now /scarcely a thought beyond the meek little sufferer, whose contracted fea­ tu...

Dr. Miller who made the examination o£ Guitean's brain, has been devoting considerable attention to the effect of different professions on longevity. His conclusion is that the average life of business men is fifty years in this coun­ try and sixty in England, statesmen seventy-two in England to seventy here, English chief justices sixty-eight, Amer­ icans, sixty. The Americans, in his opinion, are too aotive and not regular enough in their habits.

The ground is ready to yield him an abundance if he will only ^Co^^88»nor ®™n® work it. By immigration and by native increase since the census was taken, tlie popula­ tion of the United States has got be yo nd {6,000,000. In all j^obability the next census will show nearly 75,000, 000. Congressman Murphy, of Iowa, says that since he went to Congress he has come to the conculsion that if all the ideas of all the members were en­ acted into laws at once, there would be no government at all. Too many Representatives lack the common sence to realize this fact. The fire loss in the United States and Canada for April was $10,300,000, against the usual average April for nine years past of $7,500,000. Since Jan­ uary the loss has been $37,550,000 about $6,000,000,000 more than the same four months of 1883. The...

That World needed something of the land. It hae been altogether too reckless, and good will come of the lesson. The number of delegates in the Ee grablican National Convention will be B20 a majority and not two-thirds is Inf&eient to nominate, the two-thirds rale being that of Democratic National Conventions. There are two delegates for each United States Senator and two for each member of the National House, Iwo for each of the Territories and the District of Columbia. It is now estimated that the surplus revenue of the current fiscal year will amount to $105,000,000. This must, of course, be applied to the payment of the interest-bearing-publio debt, and, as that now amounts to only about $1,200, 000,000, and bonds are being called at a rate which would absorb them all in less than a dozen years.

She took their mail, some twenty-fire letters, for different parts of the world. At long intervals an item like the above recalls to the minds of a lev of the older generation of readers a far more interesting romance of the sea than "Robinson Crusoe," and one •which has—what De Foe's immortal story has not—the essential element of trath. Though Byron has utilized the princi­ pal incidents in his poem "The Island, yet they are comparatively unfamiliar to the public of to-day and may be worth brief revival. Pitcairn Inland is located near the .southeastern corner of the great Poly­ nesian Archipelago, in the Pacific Ocean, in latitude 25 degrees, 3 minutes, 6 sec­ onds south, and longitude 130 degrees, 6 minutes west.
