Mr. Monocul, who has passed years in Nic

or as the promoter of the short cut through
the Isthmus, was interviewed in New York

feasibility ot the Nicaragua route. Of the
I'uuama canal be remarked that since the be
ginning of the work in 1HH1 it bad advanced
about 15 per cent, us to quantity, but not ns
to quality. This slow progress was due both
to natural obstacles and to bad management.

wells were sunk with us much vim nnd

owing to a gas expiation that killed several
millions of people slid tore up and destroyed
a large district of country, leaving a large

Chang, the boring of any more gas wells
was then and there piohibiLnl by law. It
seems according to the Chinese history, many
large and heavy pressure wells were struck,
und iu some districts wells were sunk close
to each other. Cms was lighted, as soou as
struck, as is done iu this country. It is
stated that one well villi its unusual pres
sure, by induction or buck draught pulled
ilowu into the earth the burning gas of a
small well, resulting iu a dreadful explosion
of a large district, destroying tho inhabitant
thereof, 'I lie same catastrophe is imminent
in this country unless the laws shall restrict
further developments iu boring so many
wills. Should a similar explosion occur
there will be such an upheaval us will dwarf
the most terrible earthquake ever kr.owu.

In the iipring of 1N77 a young man, the
son of n quite prominent New York divine,
arrived iu Fargo, Dukotu. I so hail 12,000,
which bis father bad giveti lam with which
to start west, and grow up with the country.
rour weeks after his arrival lie telegraphed
homo for money enough to buy a return
ticket. It was promptly sent and a few
days nftcr the young man walked into hi
father a house 111 New xork, lluding hi pa
ternal relative iu hi study, preparing a ser
mon. The old gentleman regarded liiiil
auxioflsly over hi spectacle, and seeing
that he appeared to be in good liimllk, said,
somewhat seven ly:
".My son, 1 fear that you urn not iiiuko
good use of your opportunities in the Wost."

"Then I must say cmphuticullly that you
have have been an uii'.iilhlul steward. If I
had been in your place I could have done
better with that $2000 than you did."
"I am positive that you eouldn t have,'
replied the young man, (irmly. "I held a
royal sentience, the best hand I ever heard
of in the game, und put ull my money ou
it, but when it came to the sliow-down a Dig

"I docluro," said u gentleman who bad just
returned from a trip through the south, "it's
an outrage; that's just what it is."
"What's an outrage?" said a man with a
bad limp, who bad just come up.
"Why, this thing of fencing 111 the battle
fluids and making a man pull out bi pocket
bonk before he can look at them. I eveu had
to pay a quarter to view the battlefield of
Lookout Mountain, a piece 01 scenery mat
ought to bo national property."
"I that what they chargo now?"
"They've reduced the price, then, since I
"You don't say so? What did it cost you?"
"Why, sir it cost me us good a leg as any
man ever stood npon, ond I've had to stump
along on cork the best I could ever since. A
quarter! utuph! you got ofT cheap."
It is commonly supposed that the ouly
persons who are eager for war are officers who
are anxious to win fame or a higher rank.
That women should ever derive au advan

does not readily occur to tho imagination.
Yet there is a lirm in lierliu that employ
