THE ERA OF CASALS.
Finain-icrs and men who sire making a
study of commercial conditions are sat
isfied .that the United States is just en--tering
tiixu an era of canal building:, and
that 'by -lHi'8 the conntry will le bisected
by several jrrtiat ship euuala which shall
practically overcome the limit put upon
ocean .:oinkueree ly the coast. The
chamber of coiniuerce of New York has
inforuittlly expressed an opinion that,
the Krie canal, stretchintt from Buffalo
to the Hudson, must be deepened so as
to admit sHipp of considerable burthen.
Col. Frank ltond, wJio is well known
among railway managers as a man of
f?reat ability, declares that it is inevita
ble that a ship canal be cut across the
state of Michigan, say from Grand Haven
to the !t. Clair river. Capitalists are
already in consultation over the con
struction of a ship canal across New
Jersey to the Delaware, thence across
Maryland to the Chesapeake, with a
view ultimately of extending it through
the Jorth Carolina sounds to Charleston
ar Savannah. The expectation is that
early in the next century a ship canal,
capable of floating as great vessels as are
carried through the Suez or will be car
ried through the Nicaragua canal, will
be .cut across the upper part of the
.Florida peninsula thus shortening by
3,000 miles the trip from the coast cities
to the Nicaragua canal. Thegreat West
;is determined that a ship canal shall be
built from Chicago to the Mississippi.
It is reasonable to expect, therefore, that
. by the one hundred and fiftieth anni
rversary of the Nation's birth there may
have been developed the most stupen
. dons canal system -the world has ever
known, effecting; in a manner of which
. it is impossible to estimate the extent;
the commercial relations of the United
Slates with other countries as well as
the relations between the various cities
. of this country.

It was frequently asked during the
session of the late democratic conven
lion at Chicago why Boss Mclaughlin
av-ho was accused of selling out Kings
county to Hamson in 1888, was not in
attendance. Gath answers the question
in this way : "Because he saw that if
he gave assistance to the subjugation of
Tammany Hall in New York the axe
might next be turned against his firm
and long hold upon Brooklyn, the second
xity in the state, and the fourth in the

Gen. Eppa Hanton, Virginia's new
senator, rose in four year9 from the con
federate ranks to a major-generalship.
Wtuita a Companion Thia Vcnr.
The "Hermit of the Soanbiick," Peter
Lechner, who last year passed the win
ter months in the observatory on the
t of that lonely peak, now de
clares that he will not stay there anl
other winter unless he has a companion
with him. He wotdd, he says, prefer a
wife, If he could find one. Otherwise
he will be content with a male compan
ion, who could take turns with him in
his constant task of reading the scien
tific instruments. This decision on the
part of the "Hermit of the Sonnblick"
really threatens the further existence of
the highest observatory in Europe. For
the Austrian Meteorological institute
locks the funds to support a companion
for Lechner, and the small sum, about
100 a year, that is wanted for the pur
pose is not forthcoming from private
It is believed that the real explanation
of the discontent of Herr Lechner is that
he is annoyed at being forgotten by the
public, who have neither sent him
Christmaa presents nor published lauda
tory paragraphs about him in the news
papers of late. Three years back he
said he wanted a wife, and hundreds of
offers at once poured in from all quar
ters, including several rich and many
good looking women, but he then
langhed at the idea, and continued to
'prefer tho state of single blessedness. It
would be a distinct loss to meteorologi
cal and physical science if the Sonnblick
observatory were to be closed, but some
nif-arcb will probably be found of recon
ciling Herr Peter to his lonely but lofty
labors for another winter. Vionna Cor.
TiUies at the Prico of Grain.
The difference between the method of
paying the clergy of tho Church of Eng
land, who receive the tithe as their liv
ing, and the clergy of tho Church of
Scotland, who enjoy what are known in
the north as tiands, will . be very appar
ent in this year. On both sides of th
Tweed grain prices are higher for the
year, bnt in England tho clergy will re
ceive little iramedirtte benefit from the
rise, because by the seven years' average
it is spread over so long time that the
most that cin be hoped for from the
good prices of IK) I is to stop the fall
which has been going on every year
without a breaik since JS78, a longer
period of successive anneal declines in
the value of the lithe than has evoe be
lint in ScottiMid the tiend is calculated
On the grain prices fS each year, so that
the parish minister who have endured
the discoiufor t whicb tow prices brought
with them when grain ws cheap will
now nave- directly mr ad vantages ot
higher prices when grain has risen. In
England both the rise and the fall are-
retarded bv the seven, years? aver:ige.
In Scotland, the full effects of either the
ono or the other are directly experienced
in every year:. London draplnc.

Near Brnnn. the capital of Moravia,
important diseoveries of prehistoric re
mains have been made which are likely
to attract the attention of palaeontolo
gists ali over the globe. As- a eana was
being twig 4i:j skulls were- brought to
light of dolieho-cephalous long headed)
character aud of an exceedingly low
stage of development. The same place
contained bones and teeth of mammoth
rhinoceros and reindeer.
Close to tho skulls lay more- thai 500
fo3.sil snails, several calcinous stones,
with holes in the middle, a rod figure
cut out of a mammoth's tooth, with a
hole running through the middle. This
discovery is the first of the- kind: in
Austria and is highly important from
being a proof that there were human
beings in the mammoth periodt. Vienna

A jroud deal of indignation has- been
excited by a discovery recently made by
the Calcutta customs of a trade i spu
rious Cashmere shawls. It. appears that
large quantities of shawls have been- im
ported into India from Germany, with
imitation Cashmere marks on Hiem.
On arrival in Calcutta the shawl are
treated by some peculiar process and
then sent into the . interior- and sold
there as real Cashmere- productions.
Their actual cost in Calcutta is about
$5, and they fetch when sold about $35.
A Winter Charm,
A Wilmington man carries in his vest
pocket a piece of skin that was taken
from a man's neck and then tanned. Ho
the Wilmington man, not the other
man claims that the possession of that
piece of tanned skin will keep him from
sliTminsr on tho ice. The- boys in the
neighborhood are watching him now
to see what virtue there is in the odd
charm. The owner of the piece of skin
argn es that if its possession does not pre
vent him from falling it will, at least,
not cause him to fall. Wilmington

over forty years. F. J. White was ap

ent year. -Exeter Letter.
Supporting Ue Principle.
Last June a young man was arrested
in Natick, Mass.. because he would not
pay his poll tax, amounting to two dol
lars, and he has been kept in jail ever
since at an expense to the taxpayers of
$1.75 per week. " . The town is losing
money on the transaction, but it is vin
dicating an eternal principle with great
success. New York Tribune.
