VASTNBSS OF THE SEA.
The Popular ticienct iVsics
deals in some incomprehensible
figures in regard to the waters of
the earth. The area of the ocean
i& about three times that of the
land; the one being estimated at
52,000,000, and the other at about
125,000,000 sqoare miles. The
average depth of the ocean is
2000 fathoms. This would give a
total volume of water equal to
more than sixty trillion cubic
feet. This sum expressod in
figures would be represented by a
sir -with nineteen ciphers. "Water
is encroaching upon the land at
the rate of about one foot in 3,600
years. This would indicate that
in 10,000,000 years the land wiil
be covered by the sea. But, as
we indicated in a previous article,
there is an opposing force which
gradually uplifts the land, the war
finally ending in the triumph of
the land and the total extinction
of the water. At present we may
be truly said to bo surrounded by
water, for in the unseen air above
us there is an average" of more
than thirteen billion cubic feet of
water,- which, if suddenly con
densed, would form a vast ocean
of itself. It requires about two
thousand billion feet of water to
keep all the lakes and rivers of tho
globe .supplied for six months.
If this mighty volume of water
should suddenly cease to flow to
the ocean, no appreciable effect
would be noticed. If however,
there is, as has been estimated,
10,000,000 square miles of ice and
snow at the polar regions, with an
average depth of 500 feet, and it
should liquefy, there would result
& volume of water represented by
139,392 with twelve ciphers; in
other words, one hundred and
thirty-nine thousand three hundred
and ninety-two billion square feet.
This, with the waters of the lakes
n& rivers, if precipitated into the
sea, would cause an elevation of
its surface quite serious to think
of. But we have little to fear
from such a source. These facts
and figures, basetl upon scientific
investigations, present a fair
specimen of the patience and zeal
with which our philosophers pur
sue their researches into the hid
den mvsteries of nature.
Shall we Know Each Other Thoro?
The minister of a fashionable
churoh once preached a beautiful
sermon on this subject. He drew
the picture of a very beautiful
heaven. We would walk in sunlit
groves, by the music of water
falls, and gaze out on the amaran
thine fields. And then, too, "we
shall know each other there,1' said
the minister, and then added,
"there'll be no strangers in the
New Jerusalem; we shall all be
"Beautiful!" said Deacon Sham,
as he trotted down the aisle.
"A. lovely sermon!" said Miss
Simkins, as she put her bony hand
into the minister's. She was stop
ped by a poor mechanic, who
came up and addressed the preach
er: "Mr. , I am glad we shall rec
ognize each other up there."
"Yes," said the minister, "it is
one of the grandest consolations of
"Well, I'm right glad we shall
know each other. It will be a
great, change, though for I have
attended your church for over
four years, and none of the mem
bers of this society have recogniz
ed me yet. But "we shall know
eoh other there."
Gen. Omn L. Mann, Sheriff of
Chicago, 111., gives this as his
opinion of St. Jacobs Oil: "Some
time ago I was troubled with
rheumatism. Every one was free
with "his sympathy and sugges
tions, but nothing relieved me of
the severe pain. I had read the
Ustiawnials of people I know who
had been cured by the use of St.
Jacobs Oil, and I thought I would
tWt it. The first application
worked wonders,- and 1 was not
omg & sufferer. It is wonderful
w&at little show that malady has
vrh brought into contact with
ike Great rain Panacea."

A Formidable Rival to ths Canadian
A Montreal, Canada, special
states that a contract for another
great railway enterprise has boen
given out to build a new line
called the Ontario and Pacific
Railway, from Cornwall, on the
bank of the St. Lawrence, to Sault
St. Marie, to connect with the
Northern Pacific Railway over tln
big bridge, a distance to the west
ern termiuus of 700 miles. It is
claimed this will make the most
direct and shortest line to the
west from the Atlantic seaboard,
and will give the Northern Pacific
the advantage over both the Ca"
nadian Pacific and Grand Trunk
from ocean to ocean. The Do
minion government's charter
gives the company the power to
build a bridge over the St. Law
rence1 and American connections
are already secured from the bor
der line to Portland, Maine, Bos
ton and New York. A large part
of the new road will run almost
parallel with the Canadian Pacific,
to Sault St. Marie. It will re
ceive bonuses from municipal and
other sources. The contract was
given to a Philadelphia man. and I gates of hell, the hideous shrieks

issued. This will be a tremen-! - . . - - .
dous rival to the Canadian Pacific. ;
Duncan, M'cTntre and R. B. !
Angus, directors, and Vanhorne,!
general manager, went off in haste j
to meet President Stephens of the ;
Canadian Pacific, relative to this:
threatening scheme. How they I
can counteract it without purchas- i
ing the charter is i mystery. The !
project, which has been kept a i
secret,, has produced a sensation !
here. It is popular, as the Cana-:
dians have been crying out against
A Primitive Railroad
I wish 1 could give you a de
scription that would do justice to ,
a railroad I rode on in Oregon.
There used to be some coal mines
up at Coquille City, and a wooden i
tramway was run up from the head
of Coos Bay. The mines gavei
out, but the tramway was left. 1 !
heard there was a railroad, and
when I got there the train had
backed up to the end of the track.
Well, you would have died to tee
that train of cars. The old man
who had appropriated the tramway
had got an old engine out of the
mine and mounted ii on a hand
car and connected the driving ,
shaft with the handle. This was
the engine and tender. The bag-'
gage, mail and express cars and
the passenger coaches were com-,
prised in two rubble cars, such as
are used in the section for carry
ing tools, rails, etc. The old man
was a no less wonderful combina
tion than the train. He was the
company and the working force of
the road. President, vice-president,
stockholders, agent, con
ductor, engineer, fireman and pea
nut boy were all comprised in his j
lank form. He never hud any
trouble with the stockholders, and
he carried the general office in his
hat. My fellow passenger raised
an umbrella when he got on board,
and on my inquiry as to the need
of an umbrella, said I had better
raise mine 1 would need it.
W hen the train started I found !
out ho was right. The puffing,
wheezy old engine sent soot and
water over us in a perfect shower.
We got along, however, very well,
and would have made the trip as
quickty as we could have walked
it, if the train had not stopped
when we were about half way and
waited half an hour for a man who
wanted to go with us to finish his
supper. Corr. Nebraska State

San Francisco is not the only
place where murderers are safe
from tht: vengeance (?) .of rhejlaw.
Chicago has had .sixty-nine un
doubted murders since tiio begin
ning of the year 1SS1, and of all
the murderers only one has been
hanged. There never was a time
before when punishment was so
slowly and meagerly m-ted out to
criminals, a state of affairs gorier
ally attributed to moneyed influ
ence; but maybe justice is imbued
with the Adventist's idea, that th
end is at hand, and temporary I
sentence lor crime a mockery in
the eleventh hour. "Vengence is
mine, saith the Lord."
The Rev. Mr. Brand of Ohcr
lin, Ohio, whose sermon about
Druggist Branson, a sly rumsellor,
has led to a suit for damages,
wound up tho discourse by a '.
dressing Bronson thus: "Good
men shall breathe freer at thy
death and utter thanksgiving when
thou art gone. Men shall place
thy gravestone as a monumentand
a testimony that a plague is stayed;
and as, borne on tho blast, thy
