To Fight Sweaters,-"-LoiNno, October 9.-
Two thousand women workers of the East End
held a meeting yesterday at which they resolved
to organize for the purpose of improving their con.
edition. The Bishop of Bedford presided, and
among the well known persons present were Lady
Sandhurst, the Rev Messrs Price, Hughbe and
Clifford, and' Messrs Burns, Tillett, M u4n and
Champion, the labor agitators. "
'In the Irish Channel.-LoNnoQ, October 7.-4
terrible gale prevails to-day throughout Great
Britain and Ireland. It is particularly severe along
the River Mersey. Much damage has been done
at Blackpool, in Lanchashire, and in Ireland.
The gale is blowing with tremendous force in
the Irish Chunnel. A large number of shipwrecks
have been reported. The telegraph wires have
been blown down by the gale.
The British ship Prince Louis, Captain Pagp,
from Quebec August 21th, has been. driyeog shoW
in the Mersey.
The storm has destroyed 100 yards of the
Holyhead breakwater and isolated the lighthouse,
The coast is strewn with wreckage.
A large steamer is ashore off Aberffraw,
Wales.
A Philanthropist GOne.-LoSNDOr, October 9.-
Sir Benjamin Samuel Philips, ex-Lord Mayor of
London, and the second member of the Jewish
faith to occupy the position, died here to-day at
the age of seventy.nina, Last year he retired from
the Court of Aldermen and was succeeded by his
son, George Faudel Philips.
[Sir Benjamin Philips was born of Jewish parw
entage at London, January 4th, 1811; became a
wealthy merchant in the city proper, of which he
was an Aldermen from 1.'57; tilled the ob ces of
Sheriff, 1859-60, and of Lord Mayor 1865-66, and
distinguished himself while in office by his activity
in organizing relief for the distress occasioned in
India by the cholera visitation of 1886, in recogni.
tion of which he was knighted December S2. of
that year, shortly after completing his term in the
Mayorality. He was a magistrate for the counties
of Kent and Middlesex and a Deputy ieutenant
for the latter.]
Rotterdam's Great Strike.-RoTTrsaAM, Septem.
ber 27.-The strike which started among the dock
laborers is spreading to other occupations. Tho
employes of several cigar factories have joined the
movement. Th: strikers, headed by socialist lead.
ers, paraded the streets this morning, and after-
ward attempted to prevent the loading of the stea.
fier gtollan4- The police interfered and the load.
ing of the steamer proceeded.
The Burgomaster has issued a proclamation pro.
hibiting the holding of meetings in the streets, In
the collision between the police and the strikers no
one was seriously injured. Many vessels are
detained in consequence of the strike.
Bodies of the strikers gathered together this
afternoon became so menacing in their demonstra.
tions that the police dispersed them with their
sabres. The Communal Guard has been calledout
to assist the police in preserving order.
Holland's SrikOe Over.-ROTTERDAx, October 2.-
Another conference took place to-day between the
shippers and the representatives of the strikers.
The shippers conceded some of the demands of the
strikers, whereupon the representatives of the lat.
ter modified their other demands and promised to
influence all the strikers to acquiesce jn thisagree.
ment. It is expected that a .settlement will be
effected to-morrow, with the exception of the final
arrangements in regard to coal and minerals :
MIDNIGHT.-The strike has ended. Ate meet.
ing 1,500 dock men this evening the modified term:
were accepted, namely:-5d. an hour on week
days, 7qd. an hour on Sundays and a minimum of
four hours' work per day. All the strikers will
resume work to-morrow. They intend to forp a
union.
Hartington's Tarn.--ABERDENa October, 2.-
Lord Hartington, in a speech here to-night, justi.
fled the attempt to solve the Irish Catholic Univer.
sity problem on the ground that both Mr Gladstone
and Mr Balfour 'had declared it to be soluble.
While crediting Mr Gladstone with great service to
the country and with unrivalled eloquence, he
thought the ex-Premier's skill as a tactical leader
was less conspicuous. Mr Gladstone had on three
occasions led the liberals to defeat, and the people
were justified in demanding to know where he was
leading them now. The adoption of a fresh Irish
policy was warranted, not by any demand for rep-
aration for past wrongs, but by the benefits which
would result therefrom, both now and in the fIt.
ture.
BERLIN, September 28, 1882.-The Czar has sent
an autograph letter to Emperor William stating
that the Czarina has caught cold, and that her
physicians have advised her to delay her departure
for several days. The Czar asks that the final
directions for his reception at Potsdam be delayed.
Prince Bismarck has since communicated with
Count Schouvaloff, the Russian Minister, in regard
to the arrangements of the Czar in the event of his
coming to Berlin. Count Schouvaloff replied that
he had orders to prepare to receive the Czar and
his suite at the Embassy. The Czar himself has
not intimated his intentions beyond his visit to
Potsdam.
The Emperor will go to Schwerin on Tuesday as
the guest of the Grand Duke of Mcklenburg.
According to the National Zitetng the Czar visit's
is officially fixed for October 9.
The absence of M de Giers, the Russian Prime
Minister, who is now staying in a remote part of
the Province of Tambor, does not appear to affect
Prince Bismarck's determination to have an audi.
ence with the Czar.
Parnell's Advice.-London, October. 6.wMr
Parnell has written to Mr Sexton asking him to
act as his representative at the Convention on the
opening of the new Tenants' Defence League in
Tipperary, and to layhis views before the mon-
vention. He says that his health will not permit
him to cross the Channel. He advices that the
movement be limited to defensive action. Special
regard, he says, must be paid to these points :-
First, the duty of protecting tenants against.the
landlords' conspiracy, thus insuring to the tenants
the benefits which Parliament intended; second,
the assertion of rights of freedom of speech and of
public meeting; third, a vindication q~4,4ii ghts

CW' A Valued Corr sapoident writes:-
"It isa remarkable ill ust ration of the AR REACH-
ING consequences of the London Docks Strike,
that its effects have been felt in REMOTE Bermuda,
and that the completion of a Church there has
been' delayed owing to the detention of its roof,
through the lack of labourers to load a ship.
IW' The Hotel formerly kept by Kennelly in
Front St., Hamilton, has been taken by Mr M
Kistner, formerly Steward to Lieut-General Sir
T L Gallwey, R.E., and will be hereafter known
as The Atlantic Hotel, not an inappropriate name,
from its being nearly opposite the Halifax and
West India, and New York Steamships landing
Docks. In the palmy days of the Cunard Line at
Halifax, N.S., the Atlantic was famous, opposite
Cunard's Wharf.

pect a good performance. [See advertisement

Editor Royal Gazette.
SI,-Some time ago complaint was made to the
Senior Commissariat officer, that civilian passen-
gers were conveyed by duty-boats, and that the
Proprietors of the Mail Coaches, the Island Steam
Ship Co. and other boat owners were the sufferers.
An order was issued forbidding passes to be grant-
ed to civilians, but it appears now that the duty-
boats are placed at the disposal of the public, as
they are always well patronized and all the best
seats are reserved for civilians, much to the digust
of the Military who are the only oneswho have any
right to use the duty-boats. As important changes,
are being 'made in the Commissariat Department
it is to be hoped;that the free use of Her Majesty's
Steamers to the general public-will be stopped.
Yours Respectfully,
HAMILTON'

THOMAS BENT, a Gunner, R.A., was arraigned
on the indictment found against him for felon-

defended the prisoner. It appeared from the
evidence that the prisoner bore some ill will to.

tion given by the latter in connection with the
trial of two Gunners convicted at the last
Assizes of breaking into the Canteen at St.
George's. On the day in question Costigan was
sitting on his bed in his Barrack Room at St.
George's when he noticed the prisoner crossing
the room. Not suspecting an attack he paid no
attention to him and presently received a severe
blow from behind which knocked him down.
Otherblows were struck the prisoner using a car-
bine held by the small end with both hands.
There were other Gunners in the Barrack Room
at the time, but they all professed not to have
seen any blows struck, although they saw the
blood on Costigan and took the carbine from the
prisoner, but a woman saw something of the af-
fair th e open windows and Costigan had
unquestionably received severe treatment. Inhis
statement before the Mogistrate which was put
in by the Attorney General, the prisoner claimed
to have acted in self defence. For the defence
it was contended that the evidence for the pros-
ecution was unsatisfactory and not conclusive
of the prisoner's guilt, and that it was consist-
ent with the prisoner's having acted in self de-

place these boxes in the market wagon instead

'VIIE BERIIUDA CABLE.

When the present system of Defence was
planned by Lefroy and Jervis, a cable connec-
tion between Halifax and Bermuda was looked
on as essential, and now at length it is just
about being plmr.iJ When the Cunard Hal-
ifax and We-t Imih.i Steamship Line Subsidy
expired at mid-summer, 1886, no fresh contract
was entered on by the Imperial Government,
as the New York Steam Service, fostered by the
Colonial Government, had attained to a state of
efficiency, and it was thought that the subsidy,
or at least a portion of the amount of it, could
be used with advantage in promoting the pro-
ject of a Cable connection between Halifax and
the West Indies, via Bermuda. Delays have
been experienced from a variety of causes ; and
we have now the practical evidence that with
the close of the present year the cable between
Halifax and Bermuda will be in working order.
The Challenger expedition furnished complete
soundings. From the report of the statutory
meeting of the Bermuda Cable Company held
in London, and whi.-h we published last week,
our readers will have gathered considerable in-
formation. The Geographical position of Ber-
muda is all important. Bermuda is aradiating
point for the whole Atlantic sea board of the
North Ameri an continent, and is from many
stand points an Imperial position of the highest
importance. F' ]Fi,.nilitary reasons the cable
connection with the Continent is important, for
Commercial considerations it is hi- il -y n.l v-i I i 1,
for Meteorological purposes it will prv.:- .. In-
highest value, and for residential convenience
it cannot fail to give every satisfaction. The
opening of the Cable will bring Bermuda into
greater prominence, not for a few days, but for
many a long day. And so without any great
stimulus these islands must reap in time no in-
considerable benefits. Heretofore one of the
solid advantages that Bermuda had to offer visit
itors was its not being connected with the
World's systems of telegraphy, and hence it of-
fered a rest to th-edepleted business man over-
come with the strain of perpetual Telegraphs
and Telephones. A whole month's rest from
these was no little gain. Still the visitor to Ber-
muda, after a few days, would become anxious
about his family, or his business and would long
to know how his own little world, everything
to him, as well asthe big world which is com-
mon property, prospered.
Not a few will take take up their residence in
SBermuda for stated periods when they find that
they can regulate their business and their
family affairs by cable, and the increase in
such a class of visitors would do much to pro-
mote the interests of these islands. The num-
h ber of flying visitors is certain to increase also

trip reduced to two days. These improvements
will come in due time, and will follow as a
natural consequence of our cable connection

week, in thee "4rss" returning to Cardiff the
e day the "Orinoco" last left New York, the
cable reaching there in time to be sent on here.
A cable sent to Bermuda would have at once
enabled the owners here to instruct their agents
at Cardiff what to do. It is easy to see that in
the shape of commercial agencies there is like-
ly to be an increase ; and, with any profitable
business, the sending out of fresh people tc
manage, or assist in management. But foi
some time this is not likely, and, if our mer-
chants are active and on the alert, it is probable
that their guild will suffer little if at all

POTATO BLIGHT.
The current issue of the Connecticut Farmer con-
tains the following communication :-
It is hardly necessary to call the attention of
farmers in Connecticut to the prevalence of the so
call potato blight, which in some localities in the
State threatens to render the crop a total failure
should the prevailing damp weather continue, at
least as far as concerns the late varieties. Since
the true nature of the blight is commonly misap- o
prehended by farmers the present note may be of
interest in view of the alarming rapidity with
which the disease spread within the past fortnight,
The potato blight results from the attack of a
pirasitic fungus (Phytophthora infestans) which,
within the potato leaf, produces a treadlike growth
wii. h during moist weather, extends itself rapidly
and appears externally on the other side in the
form of a whitish bloom or mildew that may be
readily seen with the naked eye about the edges of
.the shrivelled, blackened portions of the leaf which
the fungus his already destroyed. This whitish
bloom consists of numerous threads which bear
countless numbers of the seeds or spores of the
fungus, which are blown about among the potato
plants and serve to spread the disease with great
rapidity. Having lighted upon the le iv.-, when
moist with dew or rain, they germinate either by
sending out a threadlike growth, which penetrates
directly into the leaf, or by the production of what
are called zoospores. This latter method serves to
multiply the means of contagion still further, since
each fungus spore may emit as many as fifteen
zoospores. The zoopores are mobile bodies much
like animalcules in appearance, which, after
making their exit from the fungus spore, swarm
about for a while, and finally coming to rest, each
zoospore germinates by sending out a threadlike
growth, which penetrates the leaf and spreads
within it: We may thus have as many as fifteen
new points of infection arising from a single fun-
gus spore.
This fact serves to explain the extraordinary ra-
pidity with which the disease has spread du ing
the past two or three weeks, and also suggests a
mode of checking the spread of the fungus when
it has not gone too far. It is not possible to cure
a leaf that has the fungus already inside it, but
we can prevent the spores from entering new
leaves by applying substances which prevent ger-
mination. The best mixture for this purpose
which experience has shown to be or value in treat-
ing this disease is the Bordeaux mixture, which is
being tested by the experiment station on an ex-
perimental plot of potatoes. The proportions
used are as follows a-Sulphate of copper, ten
pounds; dissolved in two gallons of hot water
Lime (fresh unslaked.) ten pounds ; slaked in three
gallons of water. Pour the coopersolution into a
evooden barrel or tub and add water tenty-five
gallons. Then pour the lime mixture, which must
be stirred smooth, into the copper solution slowly
and stir the whole rapidly while so doing. It 'is
sometimes safer to let the lime mixture cool before
adding it to the copper solution, but this is not
necessary if it is added slowly ani thoroughly
stirred. The two concentrated solutions of copper
and of lime should never be poured together while
hot. Always dilute the copper solution as above
s described before adding the slaked lime. The
line must be fresh, otherwise the mixture may
burn the leaves. When prepared a s above directed
the leaves will be wholly uninjured by the applica-
Stion.
In applying the mixture a brass force pump and
a fine spray nozzle should be used which will
a cover the foliage well without drenching it. The
1 Bordeaux mixture should be allowed to stand at
t least over night, before using and should be strained
through fine copper gauze to avoid clogging the
nozzle. A piece of such gauze tacked over the
bottom of a berry box will answer; but in strain-
Sing the mixture it should be poured on to the gauze
slowly from a height of two feet, and can thus be
r made to run directly through without clogging.
The application should be made if possible im-
mediately after a rain and should be repeated after
1 it has washed off. It is, however, very adherent
Sto the leaves and does not wash off readily.
When potatoes are very badly attacked no treat-
ment will save them, and in such cases they should
s be dug and marketed as soon as possible since the
Fungus penetrates the tubers as well as the foliage
Sand causes them to rot. When the leaves have
Shown signs of the blight it is never safe to try to
t winter the potatoes. When of two wields one is
blighted and another free from blight it is advisa-
Sble to avoid walking through the unblighted field
o after having walked through the blighted one,
since the spores may be readily carried and dis-
- seminated in this way.

Electric Tree Cutting.-A machine for cutting
down trees has been put to work in Oregon. It is
run by electricity, and can easily be moved about
in the woods, as the motor is placed on a high cart
and runs a cutting drill, which sweeps from side
to side, and is advanced as the work progresses.
The electricity can be supplied from a stationary
steam engine or water power, and conducted by
insulated wire to any reasonable distance or over
any kind of ground.


reduced price. If gathered and kept over night
sweet corn should not be packed closely in bar.
rels nor left in such piles that it will heat.
Peas, as a rule, should not be packed at all
until the pods are so well filled that the bulk of
the crop can be gathered at the first packing.
Occasionally the price is such as to warrant
going over the vines earlier, but it is not often
that more than two pickings will pay. And it
is not best to plant peas very largely unless sure
that plenty of cheap help can be had in the
picking season.
Cucumber vines should be picked over every
day, as in propitious weather the fruits come
on with wonderful rapidity. In sorting the
small ones for pickles they should be graded
into three sizes. Pick off, every day, all that
are large enough to sell at all, and if any have
been overlooked and grown too large, pick them
off and throw away. The faster the fruits are
removed from the vines, the faster new ones
will come on.
Do not leave any vegetables exposed to the hot
sun after they are gathered. If they can be emp-
tied at once upon a cellar floor and left there until
needed for the wagon, they will probably get to
the customer in good shape. If the cellar is not
sufficiently conveniently, put them somewhere un-
der cover and in shallow receptacles, not in barrels
or bins.
In gathering early roots do it so that the rows
may be thinned with as much regularity as pos-
sible, taking out the largest roots and giving the
others a better chance to develop. Have a definite
place for preparing the supplies ready for market,
so that all the waste material, such as tops, leaves,
husks, &c., may go into a composite pile. They are
rich in food elements and make a valuable ma-
nure.-- American Agriculturist.

BLAINE MUST TRY AGAIN.
THE HAWAIIANS NOT so ANxious FOR ANNEXATIeN,
AFTER ALL.-A PLOT THAT DIDN'T WORK.
NEW YonK, Oct 9.-A special from San Francis-
co says There is great excitement in Honolulu
over the proposed treaty between the United
States and the Hawaiian government. The treaty
is generally denounced by the natives and feeling
is high against its promoters and supporters. It
is generally regarded as an attempt to practically
wipe out the sovereignty of the islands in the in.
terest of the sugar planters. Efforts have been
made to induce the king to sign the protoco, but
he refuses on the ground that the treaty gives too
great advantages to the United States. The na-
tives held a mass meeting September 26th, and pas-
sed resolutions begging the king not to sign the
treaty without first submitting it to the people.
The British, French and Portuguese ministers
called upon the minister of foreign affairs and de-
manded to know the contents of the treaty, but
the government having weakened after finding the
community unaniaious against its acceptance, as-
sured the diplomatic representatives that there was
no truth in the report of the treaty having been
received. Mr. Carter is greatly chagrined over
the defeat of his scheme, in which he was backed
by the chief judge of the Hawaiian supreme bench.
The action of the commander of the Adams in
furnishing 10,000 rounds of ammunition on July
30th, the day of the revolution, has not increased
the love of the natives for the Americans. They
now look to England for protection, whereas twa
years ago sentiment favored America.
The treaty provides that articles of growth, pro-
duct or manufacture of the United States are en-
titled tobe admitted free of duty into the ports of
the Hawaiian kingdom under the convention of
commercial reciprocity of July, 1875, and shall be
treated by the Hawaiian government in respect of
any bounties paid, or of any exceptions, or immu-
nities, or in all other respects, precisely if such
articles were the growth, product or manufacture
of the Hawaiian islands, which are admitted free
of duty into the ports of the United States of
America, n under the convention of commercial re-
ciprocity of July, 1875, and which shall be treated
by the government of the United States in respei t
of bounties, or of any exemptions, or immunities of
any kind anand in all other respects, precisely as if
such articles were the growth, product or manufac-
ture of the United States.
The next article provides for carrying into effect
the commercial reciprocity covered in the preced-
ing article, whenever the congress of the United
States and the legislature of the Hawaiian islands
shall have passed the necessary laws providing
therefore
Another article provides that in order to insure
to the Hawaiian Islands the tranquil and constant
enjoyment of the advantages which come to them
under the existing treaty relations betwe the existing treaty reatons betweenthe ta o
countries, and to protect the protect the peculiar interests of
the United States in the Hawaiian islands the
Uuited States guarantees positively and efficaci-
ously to Hawaii the perfect independence of the
Hawaiian government. As an equivalent for such
guarantee, and in order to enable the United States
thus to guarantee the sovereignty and independ-
ence of Hawaii and without danger of complica-
tions with other powers, the Hawaiian government
agree that no treaties, conventions or other agree-
ments shall be negotiated or made between Hawaii
and any other power, potentate or state, without
the full knowledge of the government of the Uni-
ted States.
The Hawaiian government further agree, in con-
sideration of such guarantee, to enable the United
States to effectually protect the independent tran-
quility of the Hawaiian islands, that the forces of
the United States may have access to such parts of
the Hawaiian domains as may be necessary for
that purpose; and if (which God forbid) the inde-
pendence and sovereignty or the tranquil adminis-
tration of the Hawaiian government should be
threatened, it is agreed that the forces of the United
States may have such freedom of action in the ter-
ritories of Hawaii as may be necessary for the pur-
posegof securing the independence and~peaceful ad-
ministration of the Hawaiian government.

CITY OF NEW YORK STILL FAST.
THIRTEEN TUGS UNABLE TO MOVE HER, WRECKERS TO
GET HER OFF.
NEW YoRE, October 11.-The agents of the big
ship City of New York have turned over to profes-
sionals the job of pulling her off the end of Romer
shoal. Thirteen tugs got at her again at 7 o'clock
this morning. Four haw;ers were got out over the
stern of the steamship, and another was carried
out to a Kedge anchor. When the tugs pulled, the
big' ship on her side, hove Laut on the anchor.
The tugs were hitched on to the cables tandem.
with the biggest ones for the wheelers. Capt,
John Shackford, the marine superintendent of the
Inman company, held the ribbons aboard the tug
Crawford. When he snapped the whip everything
started except the coach. The tugs foamed and
fretted, and kept it up until 9.30 o'clock. The
tide was ebb then, and it was no use to work again
untiL night. A couple of lighters meanwhile
brought about 500, tons of the cargo up to the city.
Sand more were sent down to help lighten her for
the evening. The steerage passengers got to Cas-
tle Garden about 2 o'clock this afternoon. The
tugs scattered, and the company turned the whole
job over to the Merritt Wrecking company. The
Inman people had held off until they discovered
that a ship and cargo that weigh 15,000 tons is a
pretty big plaything.
"She is all right and uninjured," Mr Wright
said in the afternoon; but if the cyclone which
is rolling up the coast gets here before they get
hawsers and anchors out she is likely to have a hard
time of it. If everything is ready, a modest storm
is just what is wanted to wiggle her out. She
lies just on the eastern end of the Romer shoal,
headed west-southwest. She is aground from her
nTainmast aft, with about 19 feet of water 'around
her. A ship's length ahead of her there are 48
feet of water, and the same distance aft, about 50
feet, There is just about enough mud to hold her,
and under that hard sand and rocks."

JOHNSTOWN SUFFERERS COMPLAIN.
NEW YonK, Oct. 14.-The Herald's Johnstown
correspondent reports great dissatisfaction in Cone-
maugh Valley over the failure to distribute fully
half the relief fund of $300,000 intended for the
flood sufferers. There are many cases of great
destitution, and the correspondent gives details of
some pitiful instances of gross mismanagement of
the fund are charged. It is pointed out that
clerks and expert accountants are drawing extra-
vagant salaries from the fund. Winter is near
and the need of a fair distribution of the money
grows more and more urgent.
The Turks Repulsed.-ATHENs, Oct. 13.-It is
reported that the Cretans have repulsed the Turks
and are advancing upon Sphakia by way of Kalli.
crate's defile. One of the Turkish officers and
three soldiers are said to have been killed.
Trains Collide-Four Killed.-CiNlncx ATI, Oct.
13.- -There was a wreck on the Big Four road near
Trantmans station last night. A wrecking train
collided with a freight. The engineer of the
wrecking engine was instantly killed and the fire-
man fatally injured. Two tramps and a brakeman
of the freight were also killed.
Stoh ,r,' Strike.-LIvERPooL, Oct. 13.-The fire.
men on a Cunnard Line steamer, who belonged to
the union here, struck because non-union men are
employed on the vessel. A new crew of non-union
men, firemen and trimmers, was obtained, and the
steamer departed at high tide.
I murdered in a Cemetery.-STONEHAM, Mass. Oct.
13.-George Martin, jr., 21, was found murdered
with a knife wound in his heart lying in a cemetery

night, have been arrested. Bishop says the other
two quaralled and he left them fighting knowing
nothing as to the result til to-day. Maguire says
he had no trouble with Martin, didn't know him,

A PHANTOM CITY.
A despatch received at Ottawa from Victoria,
B C., says that Professor Willoughby, who
had visited the Alaskan coast for many years,
a short time ago visited Moir's Glacier," and
took a shot at it with his camera. He was
startled by a most remarkable result. It was
the phantom of a great city with rows of high
warehouses, factories with tall chimneys, state-
ly residences and elegant church spires: Vari-
ous were the conjectures as to the locality from
which the shadow was evolved. Victoria,
Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco were all
suQogested, but none met the requirements. At
last a French Canadian recognized the Windsor
Hotel, the dome of the new Catholic cathedral
near the hotel and Notre Dame, with Mount
Royal in the distance. The mysterious city
wasthe phantom of Montreal, nearly4000 miles
away. The Professor has had a large number
of his pictures struck off, and it is the wonder
of the day.
.'"',.,: ,. ,,,-Stammering has hitherto been sup-
posed to be purely a nervous defect. Some exper-
iences recently acquired by the surgeons connected
with the Ear Hospital, Soho Square, tend to call
this view more or less in question. In carrying
out certain operations to cure children of deafness,
it was found that in several successful cases the
operators had also simultaneously cured the pat-
ients of stammering. This fact attracted special
attention and study ; and the outcome has been
the firm conviction that stammering, in the
majority of cases, does not proceed from a nervous
malady, but from some obstruction or defect con-
nected with the organs of hearing. In a number
of cases selected purposely from the public schools
this fact has, it is said, been abundantly demon-
strated.
Beauty of English Landsapes.-English landscapes
enchant all those who know what prettiness means.
Scenery of the highest or grandest kind we have
not, and our. distant views are generally marred
by a haze in the atmosphere. But our English
country scenes charm us chiefly by the softness of
their colour, the effects of light and shade, green
fields-and nowhere do you see much turf as in
England-green heiges, and green trees, streams
of water running through meadows, or through
woods and coppices, our country lanes lined with
bush and briar, bringing forth their blossoms and
fruit in due season-all these in an undulating
country, in which, when the weather is flne,"and
we are not scorched by the heat of the sun nor
our eyes dazzled by its light, give to our island a
peculiarity of beautg that is specially its own.--

A correspondent of the Jewish Messenger urges
wealthy Jews to make up a purse, and by Jerusa-
lem from the Turks. It might not be difficult to
'buy that parcel of real estate: but to buy indepen-
dence would cost more than the aggregate wealth
of the Jews could purchase. The Turks of Jeru-
salem might sell a city, but the Sublime Porte
would scarcely sell its sovereignty.--Christian at

Flowers as an article of Food.-The new
Kew Bulletin contains a memorandum by Mr.
Duthie, botanical director for Northern India,
on the use of the flowers of the Calligonum for
food in North-Western India. The use of flow-
ers such as those of the lily in China as a condi-
ment is not uncommon, but it is quite unusual
to find them used as food, In the present case
they are hardly the poorer classes only, and are
either mixed with flour or are eaten separately
with salt and condiments, to which a little ghee
is added by those who are able to afford it. The
flowers are swept up from the ground and are
kept for a night in a closed earthenware vessel, so
as to fade. They may be kept for a long time.
Usually they are eaten as a vegetable, but
sometimes they are kneaded with thin altra and
baked in cakes. An analysis of the flowers
which has been made shows that their chief
peculiarity from a dietetic point of view is their
richness in nitrogeneous compounds, and con-
sequently their importance as an addition to
foods which are poor in nitrogen. There is
said to be a close resemblance in composition
between phog and the seeds of the edible ama-
ranthsand buckwheats, only sugar replaces
starch.

ley, saying he will attend the unveiling of the
monument to Gen. Robert E Lee in this city early
in December, unless something unforseen prevents.
This ,is in response to an invitation. Jefferson
Davis will also attend. It is well known that no
good feeling exi-t? between Mr Davis and Lord
Wolseley, owing to the latter's criticisms of the
ex- confederate president's administration, and Mr
Davis caustic reply, but, since the English gener-
al's warm praise to the southern general has at-
tracted so much attention, the committee of invi-
tation desired his presence on the occasion, which
is'expected to be the greatest gathering of ex-con-
federates since the war. Lord Wotioley and Mr
Davis will be the lions of the occasion. Some of
their admirers hope thit their meeting will result
in a settlement of their differences, as both are so
agreed in their admiration of Lee,

splendour. They are of copper, with wrought
iron handles, many of them ornamented, and
some of them have been copied from special
pieces in the Cluny and other museums. Lux-

to the drains and hose outlet in the centre

may play fearlessly in any part of the room
that the kitchen is kept clean. Connected with
the kitchen, and built under the footpath, is a
series of vaults. They are for ice, meat, vege-

THE PRINTING PRESS AS A REFORM.
ING AGENT.
In old days of the struggle for freedom many
grand' speech might die away within the wall
where it was uttered; now, by the aid of the
printing-press, reverberated through all the'nat.
ions, it may go thrilling and thrilling through the
world, and come rolling back to the speaker it
millions of echoes. The spoken words may reach
3000,; the printed page may be read by 300,000,.
000. Only think what cruelties, of which th
thought curdles the blood, and the memory in.
Flames the:cheek, our fathers had humbly to en-
dure Think of the horrible crimes and ghastly
secrets of monastic dungeons, of baronial castles,
It is the printing press which has poured dayli-gh
into those'dungeons, smashed those implements of
torture, burst the portcullis which defied the-bat.
tearing ram, and crushed down the walls which
withstood the cannonade. It has made nations
strong and free. It has shaken the thrones of
tyrainy, and quenched the fires of perseaVtion,
and sent the menacing spectres of igieotrau.- and
hatred to gibber in their congenial night. -' But
the printing press has given voice to the incarnate
conscience of inankind. In truth, the printing
press has added more power to man's intellect than
the telescope to his vision, or the lever to his arm.
To holy and noble readers books are as the life-
blood of muster spirits, embalmed for a life beyond
life; to silly and indolent readers they are no bet.
ter than rags and ink. Thick what a difference in
the potentiality of human happiness is made by
books. Think what life would be without them,
that you may realise what life may be with them.
Do you desire wealth P They will bestow on you
wealth beyond the dreams of avarice, from treasi
ures more golden than gold, and which no rust
can canker, With them you may hold Egypt and
Assyria, and Greece- and Italy in fee simple, and
call the world your owvn. Learn but to read, and
the poorest of you may be lords of all that man-
kind have thought. They may be to you an
amulet against vice against vice and misery, for they can save
you from long days of idleness, and from that vacu-
ity of.thought which is fertile of degradation. -' I
would not exchange the love of reading," said
Gibbon, "for all y lb'treasures of India."
"Books," said Wordsworth, "are a substantial
world, both pure and good ;" and it was his great
wish that his own works might, for the young and
virtuous, co-operate with all the benign forces of
nature, and add sunlight to daylight by making
the happy happier.
"My library shelves," said an old school-man,
Gilbert de la Porie, are the the avenues of time.
Ages have wrought, generations grown, and all
their best blossoms are cast down here.- It is the
garden of immortal fruits without dog or dragon.
Yea, it is a series of kings' gardens, where you may
walk at will, whose flowers are lowers of amar-
anth, and their fruits fruits of nepenthe." With
them you need never be quite unhappy, for in sad-
ness they will make you less sad, in loneliness not
utterly lonely, and in bereavement not totally
bereaved. What excuse is there for the poorest to
seek for companions among, the blighted groups
which hang about the doors of the gin palace, or
the low haunts where pleasure forages for death F
Why, if you will, the noblest of all societies will
welcome you; kings will utter to you their best
thoughts, and saints sit beside you like brothers.
It is nothing that at the turning of a page you
may find the best and greatest of men eager to
talk to you; Dante to show you his awful vision
of judgment and of beatitude; Milton to unroll his
organ music; bhakespeare to admit you into unim-
aginable -realms of- fame; orators ready to pour
forth for you their most splendid periods; poets
with their garlands and singing robes about them.
The noblest companions-these mighty spirits-
will have none of the malice or arrogance or weak-
ness of-the living. We may realise for them that
the communion of saints is a communion not only
with the living, but with the mightier and more
numberedd dead.--Archdeacon Parrar.

THREE HUNDRED LIVES IN PERIL.

3 Three hundred people narrowly escaped deati
o in a collision on the Sound, on Thursday evening
a between the Fall River line steamer Providence anc
> the British schooner Avis. The vessels crashed
together off Gangway Buoy shortly before eight
o'clock. It was raining and the night was vern
dark. The steamer suffered extensive damage anc
the schooner was wrecked.
It was the merest chance that the glancing blow
of the Avis did not send the big steamer to the
bottom with all on board. The Providence has
run down so many crafts that she was thought t(
be unfortunately named, but yesterday the pas.
sengers were thanking their stars that they wern
saved and they concluded to trust in that name
--yet.
It was 15 minutes past six o'clock when the big
steamer backed out of her slip at the foot of Mur-
ray Street on Thursday evening. She. started of
around the Battery at a rattling rate of speed and
was bound for Newport on her last trip for the
season. Nearly three hundred passengers were or
board, and most of them had finished supper at
ten minutes before eight o'clock, when the vesse
had reached that part of Long Island midway be
tween Gangway Buoy and Sands Point Light
about eighteen miles from the Battery by the
water route. Many of the passengers were it
their staterooms and the weather was so disagree.
able that nobody ventured outside.
Without a second's warning the passengers we c
startled by a terrific crash, and the grinding
crunching noise was kept up for a minute or two
The shock was so great that people were throw
off their feet, and the utmost confusion followed
After the first rush for the life preservers thE
frightened passengers ventured out to the rail t(
ascertain the cause of all the disturbance. The
Providence had come into collision with a little
a sailing vessel that was plain to be seen and boti
were badly damaged. It was the little schoone
Avis, Captain Farnsworth, bound from St. Johi
New Brunswick, to New York, and heavily loaded
with piles.' The vessels were going in opposite,
directions when they met. If the schooner had
been a larger boat the beautiful steamer Provi
Sdenca would most likely have been sent to th
bottom of the Sound. The Avis struck the Provi
dence head on, just forward of the starboard pad
dle box, tearing away sixty feet of the main dec]
Guards. A big hole was made in her hull, fort
feet of the upper deck guards ripped out and fly
staterooms destroyed. The crushing of the ligh
a joiner work and the heavy planking made a nois
s which struck terror to all who heard it.
e White haired Captain John Hammond, of th
* Providence, was on hand in a moment to save hi
e steamer if possible, and the hurrying to and fro o
a crew and passengers almost started a panic. Thb
h anchor was let go and the boats lowered in case o
need. Ten attention t was turned toward the bi
e hole in the steamer's side. The five stateroom,
Carried away were numbered 138 to 142 inclusive
Sand were on the extreme outward row furthest
r forward. Everything about them was crushed
T into kindling wood, and right here occurred a very
narrow escape. It was a curious incident. An olc
lady living at Newport was occupying No. 142
and at the moment of the collision she was reclin-
ing on the bed. When the bowsprit of the
schooner swept along the steamer's quarter with
f such furious impetus the entire floor of the state-
room was torn away as if cut with a great khif.-
This occurred as quick as a flash, and the old lady
still lying on her bed, was suddenly dropped tc
to the deck below and landed on a pile of mea
bags, uninjured and apparently not in the leasi
frightened. She looked about in a wondering
manner and rubbed her eyes. While everybody
about her was scrambling for life plr-. trv.-rs ane
catching for breath in their terrQr she. calmly
picked herself up and quietly inquired how to get
upstairs again.
Chief Engineer Saulspaugh sprang to her assis-
tance, and eve enthen she seemed to be only con.
corned for the safety of her daughter in another
part of the boat.
of The Avis was lying off Sands Point Light, half
full of water andI almost a total wreck, when I
visited the scene last night, The first mate said
the schooner had eyh lights burning and the night
was fairly clear, wif the wind northwest by north
and light when the steamer was seen approaching.
The course of the Providence was laid to pass un-
der the schooner's stern, but for some- reason or
other the steamer's course was suddenly altered to
go across the sailing vessel's bow. They came to-
gether with great force, and the schooner's bows
were stove in and the bowsprit, flyin r jibboom,
head gear, and in fact everything forward, carried
away. The shock of the collision broke the rim
of the heeel and sent it flying out ot the, hands of
Captain Farnsworth, who was steering at the
time w The recoil of the spokes struck the Captain
and inflicted a very ugly wound in'the thigh.
The entire blame for the for the accident islaid to Cap-
tain Hammond, of the Providence, while the stea-
mer's people claim that the schooner had no lights
out.
The boats of the Providence came along side and
assistance was offered to the schooner's crew, but
declined. Pilot Lawrence took off the wounded
Captain to Hart's Island, where Dr. Smith attend-
ed to his injuries. Captain Farnsworth was after-
ward conveyed to tihe Liawr.-hi te residence at City
Island. The ore^v c' (Ait.A i. knew that she could

After a delay of an hour the Providence was
got under way and proceeded, to Newport, where
she was laid up for the season, and the Old Colony
put in her place in the schedule. She is a very
unfortunate boat and has caused a great deal of
damage within the past year, and had no end of
narrow escapes. About twelve years ago she ran
down and sunk the steam yacht Adelaide in the
Sound, and shortly after that she collided with a
schooner near Throgs Neck and inflicted heavy
damage. Then she crashed into the -,,:.i -mur Lucy

e THE USES OF SALT IN AGRICULTURE.
t By HIenry Stewart, in New York Tiimef
e _______
If we look over the tables of analyses of agri.
e cultural plants we shall find that eveoy plant con-
8 tains more or less of the elements of which salt
Consists, viz., soda and chlorine. Saltis a chloride
e of sodium containing equal parts of chlorine and
sodium in volume, but by weight 35' parts of the
g former and 23 of the latter. This forms a neutral
s salt, neither alkaline nor having the corrosive,
acrid qualities of the chlorine. It is one of the
t most abundant minerals in existence; the ocean
1 contains enough of it in solution to form a bed over
its whole extent 140 feet thick, while there are
numerous solid deposits of it of vast extent, one in
Poland extending ,500 miles in length, 20 in
7 breadth, and 1,200 feet inthjekness.. The soil older
the whole surface of the eartit, with the rivers and
lakes of fresh water-as it appears, but containing'
an appreciable proportion of this compound-ini
addition contains a large quantity of salt.
A ton of common grasshay contains about 34
Pounds of salt, clover om ns much less, as also
i does young grass in pasture. Beets, turnips, car-
t rots, and rutabagas contain a large quantity of it.
:1 Beans, peas, rape, and buckwheat are also rich in
Y it. Some plants, as those which abound in salt
marshes or on sea shores, contain an almost in-
f credible quantity of the elements of salt, besides
t some actual salt in their substance, while almost
every plant has more or les( of it in its composition.
7 Plants, however, which contain much soda and little
oel.,:. mare known to derie the soda they contain
r i'roint lit, which is decomposed in the leaves, the
(cll..ri'u. being evolved as gas, and the soda (oxide
ofLsodium) retained. Hence the value of salt as
food for plants seems to bs indicated scientifically,
while practically it has been found useful in in-
t creasing the yield of crops in almost every case in
Swhi'h it has been applied, excepting near the sea-
shores, where the air and rain a:oe perceptibly
Ssaline.
As vegetables contain salt, it is quite reasonable
Sto suppose that the :iira..i h whieh feed upon vege-
table food should also contain salt. This is the
fact, ad the fluid and re fluid and solid parts of all animals
contain this substance. The solid part of blood is
nearly one-half salt, (54.76 per cent.,) and it is a
curious fact that the blood of female animals has
one-fourth more salt in it than that of male ani-
mals ; thisis probably due to their necessary large
secretion of milk, which contains sometimes so
much salt as to be perceptibly saline to the taste,
and has always a considerable quantity of it. The
necessity for supplying milking 'animals with salt
is thus explained. The whole body of an animal
weighing 1,000 pounds contains about twenty.
eight ounces of salt., Then if the true basis of all
feeding of plants and animals consists in furnish-
Sing to them every element they require for health-
ful and perfect growth, salt has an undoubted
value, both as a fertilizer for the soil and a food
for plants, as well as for a food for animals.
In practice this deduction from the facts given
has been fully corroborated. In some instances
there has been failure tojperceive any beneficial
results from the use of salt as a manure, but this
failure may be easily accounted for. The small
quantity of one grain of salt for a pound of dry
soil would amou'.t t.- .-", (:,,..nn.l- per acre one foot
deep, and this : ,::p iari,'-ly I trge quantity might
exist in the soil and yet the plant not take up
sufficient for its needs for want of sufi ;ient water,
or more might exist and in a wet season the solat.
ion would be too weak to supply the necessities of
the plant. Again, there may be an abundance of
salt in the soil, as in the coast-land farms, but
there may be an iusufficiency of other elements,
without which the plant could not acquire vigor or
energy enough to take up, usefully the salt which
might have been a.. ii bl'. All these conditions
may and do often l.i-v::il in regard to the use of
other fertilizers, and would necessarily affect the
use of the salt. Pi thi-.s.- negative instances have
been very few, and.in the great majority of cases
the use of salt upotr all crops, but mostly upon
grass, oats, and root crops, has been found
beneficial.
But salt has indirect a wel as well as direct action 1
upon plants. One of its effe t, upon the soil is to
decompose silicates, and the elements of fertility
are largely combined svitl silica in these forms,
this effect is of much value, A remarkable result
of application of salt to Fall whet has appeared e
on rich' land where tlh- lodging of the wheat has w
been prevented by tmht ;is ..a[tr stiffness of the straw i
due 'to the in, ro.i-.: c -u ily of soluble silica. t
Another gooj result of salt upon wheat is its effect i
upon the grtii,., i.-.l6, i, i a clear, bright, thin c
bran which i..'..- _I market value of the t
grain. Its effect upon root crops is very marked a
and the application of 300 or 600 pounds per acre,
to mangels especially, is a common practice among u
successful root growers. b
It is also useful as an insecticide. It destroys v
the Hessian fly when sown upon the young grain a
in the Fall while it-is wet with dew in early morn- b
ing. The dew dissolves it and the solution falls a
down into the base of the leaves ani the stemn

effected in the destruction of the onion maggot
which could be reached easily in this way. Large.
ly employed in a Summer or Fall fallow, it kilbl
cutworms, wire worms, and the spores of injurious
fungi. A strong solution of it is used with good
effect i kiinkilling the spores of the smut of wheal
and other grains and thus preparing them for
sowing, and those of the rot of potatoes in the
cuttings made for planting. As a condiment for
animals its use is universal, and a regular supply
of it should never be neglected, especially when
the need for it is understood.
Salt is hygroscopic-that is, it absorbs water in
damp weather, giving it out agaiinin a dry time.
This quality of it makes it useful in various ways.
When dried in an oven a few pounds of it put in a
damp cellar or room will absorb one-third its
weight of moisture in a short time, and as ft may
be dried very quickly its effect in this way may be
very useful. When applied liberally to gravel
walks about the house it will destroy weeds,
especially sorrel, which it kills very easily. It will
also clean the gravel and keep it bright and com-
pact by the moisture it absorbs from the air. No
doubt a liberal dressing of salt will be a useful:
help to a crop in this way in a dry season, as it
will be continually absorbing moisture from the
damper air at night and transferring this to the
soil during the day, but this is one of the least of
its valuable uses.


MR. BLAINE'S SPEECH.
WASHINGT6N, Oct 2.-At noon to-day the dele-
gates to the International American Congress, hav-
ing assembled in the diplomatic anteroom, pro-
ceeded in stately procession to the diplomatic room
proper. The Brazilian delegates, Senhors Rodri.
quez, Pereira Valente and Mendonca, were attired
in showy uniforms, richly adorned with gold lace.
Except the cavalry uniform of Capt. Burke, of the
army, acting aide, the rest wvere attired in stately
black, sbmo in evening dress, with opera hats.
Secretary Blaine gave each a formal greeting,
while the attendants out side were watchful and
vigilant to prevent any possibility of anyone over.
hearing any part of the proceedings.
After a formal chat Secretary Blaine opened the
Congress in a thoroughly democratic way by rap-
ping on the table with a large pair of shears-
which by the way was not intended to arouse a
smile from those representing sheep raising coun-
tries. Mr Blaine said :-
GENTLEMEN OF THE INTERNATIONAL AMERICAN
CoNFERENCE-Speaking for the government of the
United States, I bid you welcome to this capital.
Speaking for the people of the United States, I bid
you welcome to every section and to every State of
the Union. You come in response to an invitation
extended by the President on the special authoriza-
tion of Congress. Your pess. Your presence here is no ordin-
ary event. It signifies much to the people of all
America to.day. Itc may signify far more in the
days to come. No conference of nations has ever
assembled to consider the welfare of territorial pos-
sessions so vast and to contemplate the possibilities
of a future so great and so inspiring. Those now
sitting within these walls are empowered to speak
for nations whose borders are on both the gieat
oceans, whose northern limits are touched by the
Arctic waters for a thousand miles beyond the Straits
of Bearing, whose southern extension furnishes
human habitations further below the Equator than
is elsewhere possible on the globe.
The aggregate territorial extent of the nations
here represented falls but little short of 12,000,000
of square miles-more than three times the area 6cf
all Europe and but little less than one-foe rth part-
of the globe-while in respect to the power of pro-
ducing the articles which are e-sential to human
life and those which minister to life's luxury, they
constitute even a larger proportion of the entire
world. These- great possessions to-day hitve an
aggregate population approaching 120,003,000, but
if peopled as densely as the average of Europe the
total number would exceed 1,000,000,000.
While considerations of this character must in-
spire Americans, both South and North, with the
liveliest anticipations of future grandeur and pow-
er, they must also impress them with a sense of the
gravest if-pluiuililiry touching the character and
development of their respective nationalities. The
delegates whom I am addressing can do much to
establish permanent relations of confidence, respect
and friendship between the nations which they rc-
resent. They can show to the world an honorable
and peaceful conference of seventeen independent
American Powers in whi h all shall meet together
on terms of absolute equality ; a conference in which
here can be no attempt to coerce a single delegate
against his own conception of the interests of his
nation ; a conference which will permit no secret
unders-anding on any subject, but will frankly pu-
dlish to theoworld all its conclusions ; a conference
which will tolerate no spirit of conquest, but will
aim to cultivate an American sympathy as broad as
oth continents ; a conference which will form
.o selfish alliances against the older nations from
which we are proud to claim inheritance ; a confer-
ace, in fine, which will seek nothing, propose no<
Aing, endure nothing that is not, in the general

MUTUAL DUTIES.
And yet we cannot be expected to forget that
our common fate has made us inhabitants of the
two continents which at the close of four centuries,
are still regarded beyond the seas as the New
World Like situations beget like:sympathies and
impose like duties. We meet in the firm belief
that the nations of America ought to and can be
more helpful, each to the other, than they now are
and that each will find advantage and profit from
an enlarged intercourse with the others.
We believe that we should be drawn together
more closely by the highways of the sea, and that
at no distant day the ralfway systems of the North
and South will meet upon the Isthmus and connect
by land routes the political and commercial
capitals of all America. We believe that hearty
co-operation, based on hearty confidence, will save
all American States from the burdens and evils
which have long and cruelly afflicted the older na.
tions of the world.
We believe that a spirit of justice, of common
and equal interest, between the American States
will leave no room for an artificial balance of pow-
er like unto that which has led to wars abroad and
drenched Europe in blood. We believe that friend-
ship, avowed with candor and maintained with
good faith, will remove from American States the
necessity of guarding boundary lines between
themselves with fortifications and military force.
NO STANDING ARMIES.
We believe that standing armies, beyond those
which are needful for public order and the safety
of internal admistration, should be unknownon
both American continents. We believe that
friendship and not force, the spirit of just law ana
not the violence of the mob, should be the recognized
rule of administration between American nations
and in American nations.
To these subjects and those which are cognate
thereto the attention of this Conference is earnest-
ly and cordially invited by the government of the
United States. It will be a great gain when we
shall acquire that common confidence on which all
international friendship must rest. It will be a
greater gain when we shall be able to draw the peo-
ple of all American nations into closer acquaintance
with each other-an end to be facilitated by more
frequent and more rapid intercommunication. It
will be the greatest gain when the personal and
commercial relations of the American States,
South and North, shall 'be so developed and so
regulated that each shall acquire the. highest pos.
sible advantage from the enlightenment and en-
larged intercourse of all.

Two German Voealists.-I remember, writes]Sims
Reeves in My Jubilee," a curious account given
of the daily life of one of them by his agent, a cer-
tain Herr Schloss. "How does the great man get
through his day ?" was asked of Herr Schloss.
"Vell, he sing," was the reply. "Yes, but what
else? He does not sing all day." "Vell, he get
up in the morning, he have breakfast, vid a good
slice of German sausage, and he eat vera moch.
Then he smoke, and ven he finish smoke hb lie
down to refresh himself. Zen he smoke agai.
After zat he dine. He eat vera moeh and drink
moch shutout. Zen he lie down and repose himself
zat he may get strength to sing in the evening.
And after he sing he have supper, and again he eat
vera moch stout. Zo it go on day hy day."
"When does he take his bath ?" Oh, he never
vash himself." Molique once imputed to himself
and also to hisewife, a fault:which certainly belong-
ed to neither of then.. It was his birthday, and
the event was being celebrated by some of his
friends, who made it an opportunity for presenting
him with sone mark of their esteem. Molique rose
to return thanks, and did so as nearly as possible
in the following words :-" I dank you vera moch
for your lovely present, vich I shall always keep
and always falue. I am nod a speaker, but I must
say once more dat I dank you. Dis is the habbi-
est birthday I have known. You made reference
to my age, and it may interest you to know that
my wife is dirty and I am dirty two."

Yhe fatal practice of Singing Night after Night.-
Mr Sims Reeves, in his recently published auto-
biography, "My Jubilee," warns singers who are
in the habit of performing in what is called light
opera against the fatal practice of singing night
after night. No voice, according to the famous
tenor, can stand itand it, and good many cases might
readily be cited of vocalists who after a couple of
years of light opera had to retire to the concert
room or into private life. It may be in conse-
quence of Mr Reeves's emphatic warning that for
the character of Pauline in Major George Cockle's
Castle of Como two ladies have been engaged
-Miss Rosina Isidor, who will sing the part every
night except Friday, and Miss Adrieune Verity,
who will sing it on Friday evenings and possibly
also at Saturday matinees. With a rest on Friday
and again'on Sunday, a singer with a delicate
soprano voice need not prematurely wear out that
voice, as must infallibly be the result of singing
night after night without intermission.

Cagliari Devastated.--LoNnoN, October 6.-A
terrible hurricane has visited the island of Sar-
dinia. One hundred persons were buried in the
debris of buildings shattered by the storm, and
thirty persons were killed. Two hundred and
and forty houses were destroyed in the province of
Cagliari. Sixteen persons were killed and hun-
dreds were injured. The Town of Cagliari suffered
severely.
