The Reno Electric Railway and Lmd Company has been Incorporated in Ne vada. It will build railways and pur chase land in California and Nevada.

The total gifts to Yale for 1891-3 have been about f 030,000. Chicago has forty married women public-school teachers. Prof. John If. Lord has been elected acting President of Dartmouth. It is estimated that 8,000 teachers will teach their first school in Missouri this year. Four of the School Commissioners in the State of New York are women, and 110 are men. . Osford University according to Mr. Gladstone has good reason to reckon Dante among its former students. Kansas has a school for every 185 in habitants, a Sunday school for every 420 and only five criminals for every 10,000. Bequests for religious, educational and charitable purposes under 120 of the wills reported in this country last r amounted to about (7,000,000. According to the census bulletin on educational statistics there were 12.592, 721 pupils enrolled in the public schools of the country in 1890, as against 9,951, 608 in 1880.

The first dental college in the United States was established in 1840 at Bald- more, and even as late as 1864 there were but three others in the ountrv, two in Philadelphia and one in Cincinnati.

This is the most munificent in the annals of American fellowships. The occupant is to study abroad three years. alter wnicn ne is to lecture one term each for four years at Amherst. The Eauitu. a weekly paper of Chica go, says : In Chicago education haa kept pace with the material progress of the city, we naa in lmt seventy-three public schools, which have since grown to 207, with an increase in the number Of pupils from 57,000 to 127,000. In Kentucky the public-school teach ers are not paid a fixed salary, but re ceive so much lor each pupil. This plan has one good effect, that of stimulating teachers to secure scholars and thus ex tend the benefits of education; but some nave Dtiea. found making talse returns. North Carolina spent last vear (781.- 225.41 nn her schools, and of this amount (240,047.77 was spent lor the colored children. The avarase monthly anlarv for males In the white schools was (25.80 and lor lemales (2J.H5; in the colored Bchools, for males, $22.72, and for fe males, $20.36 per month. Harvard's largest class graduated this year at its two hundred and fiftieth com mencement. The gifts ami bequests for the year were more than $500,000.

The completion of the scheme requires ten years.

Missouri's Exhibit Will Be One of the Best Dress of Deer Skins to Be V Exhibited by a Squaw. A Boston man wants to exhibit sky- cycle at the World's Fair. A akycycle comes under the head of flying m- chines. The Board of Trade and citizens of Fargo, N. D., have undertaken to raise (30,000 to supplement the State World's Fair appropriation of (25,00.). The Wisconsin World's Fair building will have a (5.000 grand staircase, the donation of the Morgan Company, one of the best known firms of the State. Butterflies to the number of 150.000 will be shown in the Pennsylvania ex hibit at the World'a Fair. The co'iectlon is said to be the most complete and finest in the world. San Bernardino county. Cal., is con templating the exhibition at the World's Fair of a " palace " of native salt, nsing blocks of crystallized salt that meaaure 12x12 Inches and are transparent. Tt is estimated that the thirty-five railroads which enter Chicago will ex pend (110,000,000 in increasing and lm- rovlng their equipment and facilities or transporting. World s Fair visitors and freight. The Missouri World's Fair Commis sion has not done a great deal of talking, fait, information haa been received to the effect that it has been most dilizently at work all the time, and that the Missouri exhibit at the fair will be one of the best there."' Costa Rica's pavilion at the World's Fair will be surrounded by gardena or namented by a profusion of tropical plants, and in the galleries of the pavil ion will be placed more than 3,000 beau tiful birds, many of which have very gorgeous plumage. . A Sioux squaw, living near San Diego, Cal., will exhibit in the woman's build ing at the World's Fair a dress of deer skins, richly embroidered with sixteen pounds Ol oeaas. ene woraeu ior two years in making the garment. From t.h Han Diezo Mission will be exhibited a valuable collection of fine needle work by Indian girls. The Duke of Edinburgh has announced his intention of sending for exhibition at this World'a Fair some of the almost invaluable collection of ancient musical instruments which he possesses. A part of the collection ia now on exhi bition at the International Musical and Art Exhibition at Vienna, where it at tracts much attention. Wench breeders have become so much interested in making an exhibit of their horses at the Wor'.d's Fair that they have sought to stimulate competition and thus secure the best results byof frlns as a nrise a handsome bronze statue of a typical French trotter. This statue is to be modeled from life by M. , Isadora Bonheur and to be awarded to ' the best collection of trotters exhibited at the exposition. Following the recent discussion in iTnluh fnnrnals of the relative merits of English and American locomotives, it is suggested that during the World'a Fair a contest bs had to settle the ques tion. It is proposed that two or more crack English locomotives, with F.nglish crews, make the run from New York to Uhicago over one of the main railroad lines, and that the same number of the beat locomotives of American manufact ure do the aame, and that the results be compared. Nahum Barnett. an architect of Mel bourne, haa under consideration a prot ect to arrange for a visit of a party of Australian artisans to the World's Fair. The selection will be made from young workingmen, probably those in the last year of their apprenticeship, and it is considered that the inspection of the new modes 01 banning adopted in the large cities of the United Statea and of new inventions in connection with the sci ence of building as shown at the fair will prove of immense advantage to the men. NATIONAL CAPITAL. It Will Perhaps Be Some Time Before the Klamath Indian Reservation is Opened to Settlement Colonel Hev wood, commanding the marine corps, has accepted the resigna tion of Sousa, the leader of the Marine Band, with extreme regret. The Colonel states that, knowing the inducements that have been effered Sousa to leave, the latter could hardly have acted other wise. Secretary Tracy will give the name of Brooklyn to the new armored cruiser re cently aathorized by Congress. This vessel will be very similar to the New York. The bureau of construction ia al ready at work upon the plans for the Brooklyn and the additional battle eh p, and it is expected that appropriations will be made next winter for their con struction. Representative Hermann says that ho expects it will be some time before the Klamath Indian reservation will bo opeo'd to settlement. The preliminary steps are now being taken. The land must first be surveyed, and then the In dians are given six months to maketbetr selections of allotments; and the land will then be thrown open to settlement under the homestead laws only. Ail but the mountainous regions will be sur veyed, and the unsurveyed portion will be set apart for all the Indians. The ceded Ianda in the Colville Indian reser vation will not be opened until that por tion wanted by the Indians ia surveyed and their allotments made. The lands will then be disposed of under the land laws of the United States, which means nnder the homestead, mineral, desert land and Paciflo Coast timber-land laws. Any person who has ever perfected hia homestead right will not be entitled to enter nnder the law ; but, if it has never been perfected, he may enter 16J acres of land and prove up after residing four teen months upon the tract. Ths home stead aettier must pay (1.50 an acre for the land, and must make it within five 5 ears of the time the entry was made, one of the ceded lands will be disposed of at public auction. The Indians must make their allotment selections from the surveyed lands. It is the intention to survey only the agricultural lands first. Then the President's proclamation will be issued, and the Indian selections must be made within six months after the proclamation haa been issued, ' after which the white men will have a chance, . Whit men may select lands, but during' the first six month the Indian tan re move hint.
