A smr recently arrived in Boston
from Buenos Ay res, bringing 01,0f9
hides worth 125.000, from which
cargo, when tanned, it will bo possi
ble to manufacture $1,000,000 worth
of shoes. Most of these shoes go
west to pay for the corn and wheat

PitornsoR Li Siian Lax, who died
at Poking recently, was the greatest
mathematician that China has pro
duced within the present century.
"Western mathematicians define a
point as that vhich has no parts and
no magnitude; that a point is a mere
position without magnitude. Li Shan
Lan took exception to this definition,
maintaining that a point must be an
iufinitesimally small cube.
British officials at Cairo have been
urging the government to appoint
General Wokeley governor-general
of "Soudan, as this would reassure the
natives who joined El Mahdi for fear
the English would abandon Soudan

The Jramifarhirer'ii (fozctle, in a
recent editorial, made the following
statement regarding young men and
their advancement, which others than
the class to whom ' it is addresed
may do well to heed: "The young
men who -receive promotion are the
men who do not drink on the sly.
They are not ilie men who are at the
the front whenever there is a strike,
nor are they the men who watch for
the clock to strike twelve, and leave
their picks hanging in the air, They
arc no t the men who growl if they
are required to attend to some duty a
few 'minutes after the whistle has
sounded. They are the men usually
who pay the elosef t altontion to the
details of their business, who act as
if they were trying to work for their
employer's interest instead of to bjsat
him at every crook and turn. Thev
are the men who give the closest at
tenlion to every practical detail, and
who look continually to see whether
they can do any better or not. This
class of men are never out of a job.
They are scarce. They never strike,
they never loaf, and they do not ask
for their pay two or three weeks be
