An English pilot had an enjoyable
trip on the City of Paris on her las-"
voyage'from Queenstown. He was
a favored tourist, although his name
was not down on the ship's pas-
senger list. His name is Edmund
Butler, and, although he paid no
money, he occupied one of the cab-
ins and was paid for it. Butler was
the pilot who took the steamer out
from Queenstown. When hereached
the sea he started to return in his
yawl, which was towing astern. The
sea was rough at the time, and But-
ler was lowered in a chair from the
yardarm. Just as he got near the
boat she capsized and sunk. Butler
was hastily drawn aboard again and
there was nothing left to do but to
bring him to America. Under their
contract with the Queenstown pilots
the steamship companies are obliged
to take the best care of such of them
as may by any accident be carried to
sea. Butler had a nice cabin, board
of the finest quality, and in addition
drew $40 a week while away.

A concession has been granted to
M. Stepanni to erect a Moorish pal-
ace at the World's Fair. One of the
many attractions which he proposes
to exhibit-in this palace is $1,000,000
in gold coin in one pile. He believes
that this will be a great drawing
card and that nearly every visitor
will want to see it. Of course great
precautions will be taken for the
safety of such great treasure. It will
be in a strong cage, and Mr. Ste-
panni says: "Just under the gold
will be constructed a fire and burg-
lar proof vault. To the doors of this
vault will be connected electric wires.
In the event of an attempt to rob the
palace my guards will press an elec-
tric button, the entire pile will fall
into the vaults and the doors will
spring shut." A space 200 by 250
feet was granted for the Moorish
palace, upon which Mr. Stepanni
says he will expend $400,000.
The undersigned wishes to inform her
many patrons and the ladies in general
that she will return from an extended
visit to the principal cities north about
the 1st of November, and bring with her
a most carefully selected stock of milli-
nery of the latest and best styles, also of
notions and material for fancy work,
which she will offer at prices that are
sure to be satisfactory to all.

.The rueIte t'rono MilanintI ) ,I.t o ;o. ut-
land lies through the St, Gothard
tunnel. -Passing through a fertile.
and' pi.-turesque country, we first
reach Lake Como, which is'iegarded
as the most beautiful hike in Italy-
extending some thirty miles fin a
northea.terly dirrctiou, very narrow
in proportion to its length, its great-
est width not exceeding two or three
mileS Thie. ,mountains rise to- a'
gre::theight ,ibovejt, throwing their
-,:dClows o.er its glassy. waters. The
.bo:'rders of the lake are cultivated,

manunl.inrt.i of ui. Many hLand-
.:',i, e villa along its shore. ; ,d1 to
the beauty of its natural beauties.'
Further on we pass LakeL'.ig ir: :nid
begin their ascent of the Alpine slopes.
This pu'rion of the route is exneed-i
ingly interesting.- Followving the me-f
anderings of the Ticino, the skill of
the engineer has been di.4-.layed in
.-irmc.inrint 'g great ditlerences in
Itvel ,n ., c,,ntriacted and limited
space. The railway crossis aind re-
cro,-:s thiL I using torrent. At one
p.i int a double look is -.i:le trough
successive tunnels, so that a-t the.
same time you. are looking down'
upon track on three ditleIenit paiall.el
levels. ,The roail i ut bout of the

"-:,,r of ctirv:-s, acl iEvir.n; :Im I alI ot-s
portrptenlicuLinr iIlev'.tion without
much increase of distance. Finally
we enter the ,:'l'n thir'oat :'.f the great
St. Gothhrn tunniit,---n...,riy nine and
a half miles in I.--ti.1j, or to be exact,
16,309-yards. It ascends gr..dually
to the central point, which" is 3,7- S
feet above the sea level, and descends
at a gradient of about 6 feet to the
1,000 feet at the n.!.rth end, where
there is a station nearly: 3, .:i feet
above the sea. The width of the
tunnel is 28 feet and it is 21 feet
high, has a ,o ,ied track, and i' ,
lined throughout with masonry.
The cost of the tunnel, was about
57,000,000 francs, equal to $11,0fit,-
000, or about the cost of the Brook-
lyn bridge. It is lighted after a
fashion, and the draft of air through
the tunnel is sufficient to remove
the smoke and dead air, so that no
inconvenience is felt. Trains go
through in from 16 to 25 minutes.
We afterwards pass through sev-
eral considerable tunnels and over
some very high bridges, one of which
is 200 feet in length and 270 feet
high. A fearful chasm to contemp-
late falling into! These clear, bright,
blue mountain streams flashing into
the sunlight or buried in the
shadowy gorges give a weird and fit-
ful appearance to the narrow passes
through which the railway descends.
We at last reach Fluelen, on the
Lake of Lucerne, a lovely spot from
whence steamers connect all the lake
towns with Lucerne, at its northern
end. Mountains 8,000 to 10,000 feet
in height hem in the narrow valley.
The railway line struggles along in
cuts and tunnels and over high
bridges, passing next Brunnen, beau-
tifully located on the lake, and,
thence on to beautiful Lucerne, the
principal city of these parts, num-
bering nearly 20,000 inhabitants-a
city of hotels and boarding houses
for summer visitors, who flock here
and elsewhere in Switzerland to the
number of very many thousands, for
wherever else travelers from America
as elsewhere may go, no tour is re-
garded as complete which does not
take in Switzerland. Hence these
costly railways, these splendid
hotels, the steamers on the lakes and
the curios and souvenirs of travel
which so abound, especially in Switz-
erland. Lucerne has its old wooden
bridge, with ancient paintings upon
the cross-beams, the old fortifica-
tions, the great carved lion to com-
memorate the faithful Swiss guards
who were the body guard of Louis
XVI and were massacreed in his
palace, but most interesting of all
Mount Pilatus, rising heavenswards
with its snowy crest glistening in the

ses. To' the favorably situated
farmer in such a locality there is one
valuable paying crop that never fafls.
That.-is the summer boarder. It has
long been found that the best way to sell
grain is to make it walk off upon iteown
feet in the shape of fat live. stock, and
the.same fact is beginning to be appreci-
ated in the case of farm fruits and vege-
tables. Every summer more and more
persons go back to nature awhile in the
country, and find they can afford it bet-
ter than not. It is money in the pocket
of both 'the city dweller and the farm
folk who maintain a good table off the
products of their own ground. Many

Roman Catholic Loyalty..
Whoever has followed the movements
of the time cannot fail to have been 'm-
pressed recently with the intensely loyal
attitude of the Roman Catholic church
in America on all occasions in which a
sentiment has had opportunity to matai-
feet itself. The speo9hes of the highest
dignitaries of the church in America
teem with this patriotic feeling. They
impress it on young Catholic men to
love their country and inform themselves
about her history and government.
The address of Archbishop Ryan to
the convention of Catholic young tnen in
Philadelphia might have been delivered
by any Protestant doctor of divinity or
college president in America, so utterly
wanting was any sentiment that would
set good intelligent Catholic citizens
apart from any other good, intelligent
citizens, whether Protestant, Jew or ag-
nostic., The archbishop said, among
other things;
What we need is good, upright citizens, and
the societies you represent are created to foster
intelligent, faithful. patriotic American c.ii-
S zeus, to inaoucate Into the hearts of men pu.
r ty, honesty and patriotism. Knowledge is al-
ways holy. Knowledge conisiss In purity and

Bishop O'Farrell, of Trenton, said too:
We Catholics are subject to no king or em-

cross on these shores, and on the approaching
great anniversary of the landing of Columbus
let us show that erere ae no more loyal and
true citizens than the Catholics.
With such glowing, earnest patriot-

young American Catholics there, need-

creatures, mostly or altogether Indi-

Colonel Henry S. Olcott used to be a
shrewd, very able newspaper man, for a
time particularly active in ferreting out
fraud and humbug. Punishment for
this may now have overtaken him in the
-shape of a tendency to believe what his
fellow men declare to be arrant non-
sense. Colonel :Olcott, in brief, declares
there. are mahatmas, that he has seen
and talked with them, and that, most
staggering of all, they have sent him

say, they understand the laws of; matter,
p. well, in their;'high and mighty way,
that they can take a letter, dissolve it
into its primordial atoms, in that bsape
raft it across a continent, then, by sheer
force of their "larnin," pot the atoms
together again and make it flutter and
fall in real, solid, tangible shape at the'
feet of the person for whom it is de--
Now Colonel Olcott, once a newspaper
man, who therefore ought to know bet-
ter, informs us that he himself has actu-
allyreceived such letters. and he used to
le a truthful man before he went to India
and the mahatmas gotb hold of him;
Meantime the New York Sun offers to
give a certificate of genuineness over
the editor's signature, 'if Olcott; will
deliver through, his' mahatma postal
service' a letter. directed to a certain,
person not named, ,and inform the pub-
lic' through any newspaper of the con-
tints' of -the letter as obtained by the
occult knowledge of his mahatmas.
The proposition is a fair enough one.
Of course it is easy to take refuge in a
lofty superiority and :say mahatmas will
not work at newspaper dictation. But
then it will follow sensibly enough that
nobody will believe in them. If there
aremtabatmas,- now is their time to ap-
pOartousi It is unfortunate, indeed, that
shch fairy tales should meet at the outset
the investigator into real psychological
science, thought transference, etc. There
is a world of true scientific knowledge,
hidden hitherto from general research,
which we seem.-just on the point of
grasping, Under such conditions every-
thing that cannot verify itself according
to the severest tests ought to be brushed
aside like cobwebs.

Beter Than Electricity.
At least it may prove to be so. It is
compressed air. For once the French
have gone ahead of the Americans in
the field'of' utilizing inventions, and put
compressed air to so many industrial
uses that we of the western republic can
only admire in silence.
In Paris, thanks to the admirable sys-
'tem of cellars under the streets, com-
pressed air is conveyed in tubes beneath
the, 'pavements, just: as gas, steam and
elsctricity are conveyed under: some of
our streets. 'Pipes. carry the air at a
pressure of six atmospheres, which can
be reduced to four by means of valves.
'The compressed air is used for many
things. 'In one place a visitor found it'
doing, the work of a twenty-five horse.
power 'motor instead of steam. In an-
other it served for refrigerating pur-
poses, performing its task perfectly and
cheaply. By its means 10,000 clocks in
Paris all strike the time at the same in-
stat, street cars ars are propelled without
the use of either horses or electricity,
cheaply, safely and surely. They neither
stop because the horses balk or the cir-
cuit is broken. Compressed air cools
liquors in barrooms perfectly and fur-
nishes electric lights. Paris seems to be
gding wild over it and expects no end to
the wonders it will work.

There-are some new things in airships.
MAxim, the Yankee in England, says he
isjnearly ready for the last' grand test
with his air traveler. He has spent
$i5p,000 on the machil s. Its fuel will be
gasoline. This will generate steam,
which will drive the engines and screws.
When equipped with fuel, water, etc.,
the aviator weighs 5,400 pounds, and
Mr. Maxim believes he can make it lift
itself by pressure of the air upon the
under side of inclined planes. Another
idea is that of the French aeronaut who
will soon attempt to cross Africa in a
machine of the balloon type. He ex-
pects to generate as he goes the hydrogen
gas to hold the balloon in air. This
Frenchman is Professor Lecomte, of the
Paris school of aerostation, and the
chances are that Professor Lecomte's
friends will bid him an eternal farewell
when he starts on that voyage across
In one way the electrical machine
manufacturing business has been over-
done," There is at present a glut of poor-
machinery. Many rushed into its manu-
facture before properly understanding
either electricity or the needs of the pub-

lie. While this indifferent machinery is
being worked off and weeded out, elec-
trical machine work will be dull.

Hon. James G. Blaine, the ac-
knowledged dictator of the next Re-
public~an Presidential nomination,
has solved a conumdrum which for
several months puzzled the people of
this country, by returning to Wash-
ington and resuming his long neg-
lected duties as Secretary of State;
but there is another problem which
is yet to be solved-does he come as
a friend or as an enemy of Mr. Ben-
jamin Harrison ? Some of Mr.
Blaine's friends insist that he will
again be the nominee of his party,
and that it is his intention to so
shape -things during the next few
months as to compel Mr. Harrison
to abandon the dearest desire of his
heart by announcing that he will
not allow his name to go before the
next Republican convention; but
your correspondent does not believe
that Mr. Harrison has any idea of
surrendering the lead he has al-
ready secured by barter of appoint-
ments for delegates to that conven-
tion, and which he hopes to increase
by the large number of important
appointments now at his disposal,
which are undoubtedly being d&e
played for the express purpose of ob-
taining additional Harrison dele-
gates. Six months ago Mr. Blaine
could easily have carried out such
a phi, but Mr. Harrison has made
such good use of the absence of the
man from Maine that it will be very
difficult if not impossible now.
One thing is very certain, if appear,
ances count for anything, and that is,
that Blaine's health will not inter-
fare with his entering the field as a
Just around the corner from Mr.
Blaine's house there .was Saturday
an-d Sunday domiciled another man
fram Maine, who less than two years
ago was a rival for popularity in the
Republican party of Mr. Blaine. His
name is Thomas B. Reed, more pop-
ularly known during the life of the
billion-dollar Congress as Czar Reed.
He did not call to pay his respects
either to Mr. Blaine or Mr. Harrison.

.aa man of great intellectual-
tie has made a most excellent
Gromor. The feienocracy has done
and could do a great many more foolish
things than to nominate Gov. Boles. He
is admirably.situated from a geograph-
ical point of view, and this is an im-
portar) factor to be taken in considera-
tion. He is much better situated than
Gov. Russell, who I suppese will be a
candidate for the Vice-Presidency if he
is re-elected in Massachusetts."
It will not be the fault of the ad-
ministration if the mob in the streets
of Valparaiso, Chili, which resulted
, in the death of one and the wound-
ing of several United States soldiers,

is not used to bolster up the waning
Republican fortunes in the State
campaigns now rapidly drawing to a
close. Ever since the official account
of the mob's actions was received
the cable has been kept hot with
messages between the State depart-
ment and Minister Egan, and the
official atmosphere of Washington

has been full of talk about "de-
mands for abject apology," "dignity
of the flag," indemnity for the
families of the killed and wounded
sailors," etc. And there are men
who talk about enforcing these de-
mands just as if we had a strong
naval force in Chilian waters. We
have just two vessels there-the Bal-
timore and the San Francisco-and
the Boston, which sailed from New
York Saturday, will be there in
about sixty days. Had the new
vessels which spent the summer in
the neighborhood of the fashionable
summer resorts been sent to the
South Atlantic, as Mr. Harrison and
Secretary Tracy were urged to do,
we might be in a position to talk
about enforcing demands, but as
things are at present such talk is
arrant nonsense.
In spite of all sorts of intimidation
and threats the amount of money
contributed by the Republican em-
ployes in the government depart-
mebts has been unusually small this
year, and not half of those entitled
to vote in Ohio, New York, Iowa
and Massachusetts *ill go home to
vote. This is significant. These
people expect that a Democratic
President will be elected next year,
and they deem it good policy not to
take too active a part in politics.
