Switzerland more than any other
European country is working to im
prove the methods of manufacture
as well as the quality of product, and
recent cantonal and national laws
are helping very much to that end.
Schools and associations for the im
provement and promotion of indus
trialenterprises have been multiplied.
Much money is expended for these
urposes; the benefits thereof are,
lowever, really harvested by the
purchasers or consumers of these
manufactured articles. In the man
ufacture of embroideries and linen
articles, in regard to their beauty
and durability, Switzerland is un
questionably ahead of any other
country in Europe. The same may
be said of the silk industry. The
embroideries are made mostly in the
canlons of St. Gall and Appenzell,
both by machines and by hand.
Hand-made embroideries and laces,
once of the highest value, are now
giving way to the machine made,
and the competition between the two
is rapidly bringing prices down. The
silk industry has obtained a won
derousgrowth. In the Canton Zurich
and localities tributary to it, 33,000
silk looms are in use, of which 3,000
are driven by steam power. Sixty
one thousand Swiss arc occupied in
the work. The ribbon industry at
Basle is said to occupy about G,300
looms, with about 12,000 workmen.
Since 1882 the export from Switzer
land to the United States of watches
has suffered a steady decline. The
reason thereof is not because the
Swiss watches are less good now
than formerly (they still maintain "a
goodrcport")", but becauseof the rapid
development of the same branch of
industry in the United States during
the past eight or ten years. Ameri
can watches, in their beauty and
quality, successfully compete with
Swiss and Jorgensen watches, not
only in the United States, but also in
Europe, and even in Australia. The
advantage theSwiss watch manu
facturer has over his American col
league is the cheapness of labor.
The advantage which the latter has
over the former, is that he, with his
perfect tools and machinery, is able
to produce a larger number of watches
during a given period of time than
his Swiss colleague, for the latter
has much of his work done by hand
In 1883 Switzerland exported $7
000,000 worth of cheese to outsida
countries, of which $800,000 worth
came to the United States.

"Were I rich, I'd publish a new kind
of newspaper, that would be both
novel and do a body good to read.
I'd have my correspondents, agents,
writers, and reporters hunt up all
the good they could find. I'd chron
icle the acts of devotion and bravery
that are being performed around us
all the time; note the deeds of un
selfishness, tell about the self-denial
that is practiced by so many con
tinually, talk about all the good
men and women instead of the bad ;
write up the heroes and heroines
that we find in huts and palaces,
everywhere, and the love that
wreaths itself around the unhappi
ness, lightens the labor, pardons
unkindness and neglect, and per
vades all things in its beautiful,
silent way, just a9 a rose fills a room
with fragrance you can inhale but
not describe, and touches everything,
with its invisible hands; and instead'
of weeping and waiting for the awful
storm to Durst, my readers should
take a cheerful view of life, and be
thinking that in a little while the
gray mists would change into the
sunshine. Peck's Sun.

Several articles have appeared
lately in reviews and magazines, the
writers of which attempt to show
that amalgamation is inevitable.
These writers have a theory but not
the facts to sustain their theory. If
it can be shown that the number of
mulattoes is increasing more rapidly
than the negro race is increasing,
they might have something to sus
tain their theory. But is there any
such increase of mulattoes? It is
certain that the belief throughout
the South is that the mulattoes are
gradually disappearing. In view of
the attention which this race ques
tion is exciting, the next census will
be looked for with deep interest. It
is safe to predict that those who
hold to the amalgamation theory
will suffer a great disappointment.
The tendency is away from and not
towards amalgamation. Savannah
