One of the advantages pertaining
to the new method of engraving by
electricity, an electric pen having been
invented for the purpose in Paris; is
that the artist does all parts of his
work, and with uo more trouble than
if working with an ordinary pencil,
and he can even operate in a dark
room, with no other light than the
glare from the induction spark. If a
sheet of tissue paper with a sketch
upon it is attached to a plate of copper
or zinc, it is said that an engraving
may be made with extraordinary facil
ity by aid of the electric-pon engraver.

The Doomed Crew.
The sea gives up its dead, and the
certainty is now fully established that
not a soul survived the lost of the
Lupata, one week ago lost night; off
Tillainook head. At low tide last;
Sunday Mr. Cloutrie, the Sea-side
mail carrier, passed under the cliff of
Tillamook head and there found the
ghastly remains of twelve men. Five
in one heap, and seven in another.
Tluy were all divested f clothing,
and the probability is that before leav
ing the vessel the prepared to take
the heat advantages posmble of the,
last chance of saving their lives. But
abts. the place where they came in was
tiie most, forbidding spot along the
whole const, an almost perpendicular
cliff of rock, araitht which possibly,
if living to reach it; they were dashed
to death or prtshed m their futile at
tempts to get jiway. The rock is not
in sght fron the place where Mr.
C!Htrie found tin, bodies. Our in
fotRiattt, Mr. Grimes, ay.s the vessel
la3s about one mile from the head,
and one mile from the light-house
rock. The bodies will be given chris
tian burial, and a hhnrp look out will
le kept for the others. The vessel is
.Mipposod, from all information which
we have; to have carried fourteen men
besides Capt. Ravens aud his wife.
Capt I r veil was not in eouiHiaud. It
is most assuredly a very sorry incident
with which t begin the new y-ar,
and we hop, wo may never be called
up to ohrmicle u pn trail ol to it.
Our Bulk Exports.
Before the days of elevators the
great bulk of exports of breadstuff
from the Atlantic seaboard consisted
of flour, since then, however, the ex
ports have been mainly in grain. But
lateiy the exports of flour have show u
a larger relative increase than grain,
because of the improvement in milling
and the increased use of sacks in plac
of barrels. Minneapolis takes the
lead in the tiur iutoiest. During
the month of November the purchases
of wheat by the millers of Minneap
olis exceeded the receipts of wheat at
any other primary w heat market in
the United States except Chicago.
It i evident that the time is fast ap
proaching when Europe will receive
the surplus product of America's
wheat fields only in the shape of
flour. Some of the largest mills of
Minneapolis have the facilities for
turning out as high sis 4000 barrels per
day. The largest mill in Europe has
a daily capacity of but 2,800 barreh,
aud none of the European mills are
fitted with the perfection of modern
machinery used in the Minneapolis
mills, lately described in The Asto-
A Possible Customer.
Mr. Seebohm, in an interesting
book recounting his recent experiences
in Siberia, says that birds go to the
Arctic regions to breed, not by thou
sands, but by millions; and he tells us
that the cause of this migration is the
search after food, which is there pro
vided for them with lavish prodigality.
Seed eating birds find an immediate
aud abundant supply of cranbeiries,
cro wherries and other ground fruit,
which have remained frozen during
the" long winter and are accessible the
moment the snow is melted; while
insect eating birds have only to open
their mouths in order to have them
filled. The fact appears to be devel
oping, that Siberia has been a greatly
underrated territory. It is no colder
than Canada, and much more fertile.
It is said that the United States might
successfully cultivate an important
trade with it. It needs many things
that we produce, and no other coun
try lies so convenient to it as the
United States. Its vast rivers empty
themselves into our Pacific, and
through them goods can be conveyed
into all parts of the interior of the
country, as readily as to Alaska.

A Millionaires Visit.
Hon. Charles Crocker, of the
Central and Southern Pacific rail

stamping grounds, "where we were

The Mishawaka Enterprise thus

millionaire, whose wealth is esti
mated at the modest lirures of

South Henri relatives, on his way
through the country by special car.
The site of Misliawaka, where lie
used to drive an ox team, work at
the forge, and toil for his daily
bread like xu ordinary . mortal,
must have aroused Strang recollec

now ranks himself among the

Some idea of the amount of money
which is annually taken out of the
country by foreign ship-owners for
performing our carrying trade may be
gathered from the statistics of exports
and imports. Thus during the fiscal
year the exports to foreign countries
amounted to 8823,950,353, an iucrease
of Sl25,005,5tU over the previous
year; but while this great increase is
noted, our participation in the carry
ing trade has diminished, having been
less in the late fiscal year than in any
which preceded it In 1877-78 the
percentage of Americau tonnage in the
carrying trade was 2G; in 1870-80 it
was but 19. The returns of steaai
tonnage are still mere significant In
1877 -78 the percentage was 21, while
the past year it has fallen to 16.
Nearly five-sixths in value of our
foreign trade during the last fiscal
year was carried on under other flags
than our own. There ought to be
statesmenship enough in this country
not only to arrest this encroachment
of foreign shipping upon our carrying
trade, buUto devise ways and means
for a new growth of our merchant
marine. As the case now stand, we
pay into the pockets of foreign ship
owners aniiualiv well on toward $100.
