Hamlbtiry, lieing the ollicer in charge,
has been directed t submit specifica

The Potomac rivei which is the onlv
waterway approach to the national capf
tal, after being practically unguarded for
many years is at last to be supplied with
modern defenses. The project contem
plates empalements for four twelve-inch
modern guns on lifts, six ten-inch and
three eight-inch guns on a disappearing
carriage, eight twelve-inch mortars ami
extensive submarine mines operated
from two mining casements. The tor
pedo arrangement will be one of the
most complete and destructive in the
world. Immediately in front of the fort
the Potomac curves gracefully in the
shape of a half moon, and the guns
posted in the land batteries can deliver
a broadside as well as a " bow-on " fire
npon an advancing boat before the tor
pedo mines are reached. Plans have
also been perfected for effectually ob
structing the river at this point should
such a step be necessary. The sum of
$117,1(10 from the general appropriation
of February 21, 181)1, is now being ex
pended on this work, and should that
amount not prove sufficient, an allot
ment will be made from the appropria
tion passed at the session recently end
ed. Two hundred additional acres of
ground at Sheridan's Point on the Poto
mac, contiguous to Fort Washington,
have also been acquired by the govern
ment so that there may be no lack of
room for the plant.

cities speak. " In the multitude of coun

The gospel of St. Mark, printed on
raised letters at Philadelphia in Novem
ber, 183:5, was the stepping stone to the'
education of the bl.nd. It was printed
in tiie old French ty pe invente 1 by Hituy,
but now Roman letters (without capitals,
to save space) are used, and the Bible is
printed in eitrht volumes, each a little
larger than Webster's unabridged dic

Tiie new catalogue of th University
of Pennsylvania shows 1,704 students,
or twenty less than Yale, while the Uni
versity of Mich gan has 2,03, or just
twenty less than Harvard. In the num

with 253, the University of Pennsylvania
second with 237, Columbia thirl with
220; Yale fourth with 153 and Michigan
fifth with 145.
The three characteristic instrumental
tics of modern civilization are the rail
road, the newspaper and the common
school. .The common school means the
acquisition on the part of each boy and
girl, whether rich or poor, of the neces
sary knowledge required to read the
newspaper and make use of the railroad
to exchange the products of their own
industry for a share in the products of
the world's industries. The consequence
of the use of machinery and the steam
eng ne is the trans'er of population from
the country to the city and the substi
tution of educated directive power over
machines in place of mere hand labor.
Hence everywhere education is in the
ascendant. After the Franco-Prussian
war Austria increased its school attend
ance nntil it has now 13 per cent, of its
population in school. France has in
creased its school attendance to 15 per
cent, of its population, where it had
only 9 per cent, before the battle of Se
dan. About the same time England re
modeled her own system, and following
the example of France in 1881, England
in 1889 has made her schools free to all
her pupils. .Italy and Spain have devel
oped their schools until 10 per cent, of
their respective populations are in the

As a general thing a man knows whert
to look for his bouse when he goes horns
from work. A two story dwelling is de
veloped strongly in his bump of inhabi
tivenesa. In a world of munitions it il
usually content to remain at the old stand
till the wreck of all things earthly over
takes it. Let a man once build a horn
on lot 20, block 6, and he can leave it
in the morning with a pretty safe assur
ance of finding it right there when h
comes home at night
But houses do sometimes stray away,
and while they leave certain ancient land
marks they make others as they go. It
often happens that a man residing on his
own property sells the lot at a good figure
and moves the house to a less costly loca
tion farther on. These are the times
when the rule finds exception, and the
head of a family who closed his front
door at Adams and Wood streets this
morning is likely to open it to-night at
Garfield park. The housemover comes
when be can not when you are ready
for him. He shoves a lot of rollers under
your residence, hitches a windlass horse
to it and snakes it along the highway,
while your family remain inside and
continues to pursue their daily avoca
tions. In northwest Chicago this spec
tacle of a quiet domestic scene in a wan
dering residence is very familiar. People
are changing the face of the country so
rapidly that homes give place to four story
buildings at the slightest notice. The
daily programme of breakfast, dinner
and supper go on, though three grocers
may have to be patronized before enough
provisions are obtained. The lifted hulk

if he can, while they sit in a comforta

scenery. Children can be kept in the
house so readily while the latter is being
moved from one part of the town to an
other that it has been suggested to have
the state hire licensed raisers and movers

This moving a family and a house to

talking have induced her to subscribe,
but sho wants to object a little longer,
and while she gratifies that wish her
place of residence has changed from
Lake View to Jefferson, and the agent
has lost a sale. Fellows with coal bills
and grocers with unbalanced accounts
can find one of these elusive households
any day, and they are likely to run along
in breathless fashion at the rear entrance
or back off from the impending, advanc
ing front door, pulling the bell as if tbey
were tweaking its nose and then retreat
ing as if afraid it would resent the insult.
These buzzards who float around a family
en transitu may as well be paid; they will
camp wherever the house is deposited,
and it doesn't look well to be introduced
to a neighborhood by a bevy of bill col
lectors. Taken altogether, the business of mov
ing house and household, family and
familiars, without taking up a carpet or
packing a box is deluding. A man never
knows where to look for the thing, and
life is too short to go and sit down on the
vacant lot till it comes; his neighbors
know too much about him from the start,
and bis family cannot rub out old scores
and begin anew in the legend side of life.
