A Childlike Naturalist

In his "Life, Letters, etc., of Agassiz," Professor Marcou gives this sketch of Gressly, one of Agassiz's early companions:

"Agassiz had to pay for his lodging, which consisted of a small bedroom poorly furnished, and which soon became a true pandemonium of the most sordid kind. He boarded when in Neuchâtel at a third-rate inn, called Le Poisson. kept by the sister of the artist Jacques Burkhardt. When traveling-always on footthere was even less expense; for Gressly entered the first farm on his road, and asked for food and lodging. He had already roamed all over the Swiss Jura Mountains to make the observations which had resulted in the excellent Observations géologiques sur le Jura Soleureis,' and was well known personally or by reputation by almost all the country people, who always received him kindly, giving him a place at their table and a bed to sleep in-or more exactly on; for he slept with his clothes on, even with his shoes on. The farmers liked Gressly extremely, because he not only told good stories, but also gave good advice for finding springs, digging wells, and he indicated good places for marls and clays used in agriculture, and for stone quarries. Like a child, as he was all his life, he played with the children, making cocks and boats and dancing frogs out of pieces of old almanacs or newspapers. As an example of his cheap way of traveling, he once started with a small sum of money in his pocket, then he forgot that he had any money, and remained two or

even

three months without spending a penny, going from farm to farm, and returned loaded with the most splendid and rare fossils. And when asked why he had stayed so long without writing-Why,' said he,' you forgot to give me any money, and I was obliged to do as well as I could with my friends the paysans, who generously gave me board and lodging as I went along; a slow process,' he added, which took much of my time.' But, Gressly, I gave you some money before you started, and I saw you, if I remember rightly, put it in that pocket,' indicating the pocket. Gressly put his hand in his pocket and brought out the gold pieces which had been there, forgotten, ever since he started two months before."

Whaling by Electricity

That the field for the application of electricity is practically unlimited is again demonstrated by a seafaring man who proposes to go out and kill whales with it.

The salt had so much faith in his scheme that he engaged an electrician to build a dynamo that would generate an alternating current of 10,000 volts. That dynamo he will have rigged up in his ship, and then he will sail away to the north to capture the whale in a fin-de-siècle manner.

Captain Charles W. Hershell, of Halifax, owner and commander of the whaling ship Rosalie, is the man who intends to wipe out the customs and traditions of the whaling industry with a small wire and a large dynamo.

As to the method of application, the captain explained it to a New York writer as follows:

"I am going to place the dynamo on the whaler, and not put it into operation until the whaling grounds are reached. On board I will have a big reel of heavily insulated wire. "The reel will be placed in the smaller boat in which we go out to meet the whale. We shall have several thousand feet of wire on the reel. One end will be connected with the dynamo. At the other end, which will be in the smaller boat, will be a hard rubber stick, about four feet in length. The wire will run through that stick, so that it may be handled easily and safely.

"At the end of the stick will be attached a piece of metal twenty-four inches long and one inch in diameter. The point of that needle will be sharp, so as to penetrate the flesh of the whale easily.

"The hard-rubber stick and the big needle will be used just as we use the harpoon today. When near the big fish, as near as we get in the old way, the harpooner will throw the electric barb.

"At the time there will be a current of

10,000 volts running through the wire. When | KODAK VALUES

the point of the needle strikes the whale a current connection will be formed with the dynamo, and the whale will get the full shock of the high voltage and be dead in the fraction of a second."-Boston Globe.

The Week

The Business World

The alarmists, pessimists, and bear speculators had their own way with the stock market last week and on Monday of this week. The political situation, the cessation of London buying of stocks, and the increased gold exports gave them their opportunity, and even the illness of Mr. Cornelius Vanderbilt was most unreasonably urged as a reason for lower prices. It is noted that the average of prices fell as low or lower than that at the time of the Venezuelan "panic," but professional

stocks

critics term the week's condition as "de-
pressed" rather than “panicky." There was
a rally on Friday and Saturday, but an
accented decline on Monday of this week,
checked only at the close of the day. Rail-
way stocks suffered almost universally and
evenly, and the losses ran from one to eight
per cent.; the so-called "Granger'
showed the greatest reductions. Governments
declined to about 112 for coupon bonds. The
industrials suffered considerably, especially
Sugar, Leather, and Tobacco. The exports
of gold formed a very serious feature of the
week. The reserve is rapidly reaching the
$90,000,000 level, and talk of a new bond
issue is again current, but is generally denied.
It is announced that the New York bankers
have decided to turn $15,000,000 of their
accumulations into the Treasury, and it was
this report which on Monday afternoon
checked the depression in the market. On
Monday Burlington closed at 6334 (asked),
Louisville and Nashville at 45%, Lake Shore
at 139, Missouri Pacific at 17, New York Cen-
tral at 912, St. Paul and Omaha at 331⁄2,
Western Union at 78, General Electric at 22,
Manhattan at 931⁄2, Michigan Central at 95,
Chicago and Northwestern at 93, Illinois Cen-
tral at 911⁄2. As might be expected, the vol-
ume of general business trade is small, and
the industrial markets dull; exports of wheat,
however, were 2,963,000 bushels, as against
2,167,000 bushels the previous week, and
1,652,000 bushels in the corresponding week
of last year. The total number of business
failures for the week is given by "Brad-
street's" as 255, as compared with 219 the
previous week, and 214 the corresponding
week last year.

Chinese Railways

The London "Times"
says:

"The text of the edict of the Emperor of China respecting the construction of railways in that country has now reached London. The Emperor begins by stating that he has read the memorial of the Ministry of War recommending the appointment of a high officer to take charge of the construction of railways. The latter, the Emperor observes, are most important for the maintenance of trade as well as for the employment of the masses of the people. Hence he has decided to encourage railways in every way. Recently he instructed the princes and ministers to commence with a line in the neighborhood of the capital, and they put the work of surveying a route between Peking and Tientsin under the care of Hu, a provincial judge. Hu's report has also been read by the Emperor, and from this it appears that the line, starting from Tientsin, would take the route of the western banks of the Grand Canal, and, passing northwards, wonld cross the southern parks and terminate at the Lukon bridge, in the western suburbs of Peking, traversing a distance of about 80 miles. The estimate for the construction is 2,400,000 taels. The Board of Revenue and the Viceroy of Chi-li are to supply the necessary funds. With reference to the grand trunk line from Peking to Han-kau, the Emperor says that, as the distance is great and the cost immense, he grants the privilege of constructing it to wealthy men in the various provinces who can show a capital of 10,000,000

taels or more.

and other dependencies of the empire, but also
to our people laboring in other lands.""
A struggle is going on be-
tween British and French,
or Russo-French, syndicates
competing for railway and other public works
contracts in China. The French, on the whole,
says a London press telegram, seem to be
getting the best of it. The Pekin government,
according to advices received in London and
Paris, besides assenting to the construction of
a narrow-gauge single line from Tungchow to
the Tonquin frontier, where it will join the
French line, have given the Russo-French
syndicate contracts for a projected trunk line
between Hankow and Canton. Nominally
this big enterprise will be carried out by native
contractors, but with French money and by
French engineers. Ten civil and railway en-
gineers have just left Paris for the East in
connection with these contracts. On the

British side contracts have been secured for
railway extension from Tientsin to Pekin.
German and American private enterprises in
the new development of China are not heard

It concludes by stating (1) that the total of
British trade has not by any means advanced
in proportion with the area and population of
the Empire-that, in brief, trade does not
follow the flag, and that the disproportionate
growth of armaments forms an increasingly
severe strain upon industry; (2) that by far
the greatest proportion of our trade always
has been and still is, not with our colonies, but
with foreign countries, and especially certain
of them which are affected by our political
policy; (3) that the proportion and in some
cases the amount of colonial trade is not in-

creasing, and that recent acquisitions which
have involved a heavy political and financial
burden have only infinitesimally increased
that trade; (4) that British labor is losing and
not gaining, and will probably lose still more
heavily by the extension of the Empire; (5)
and, finally, that a large and increasing por-

tion of our wealth accrues from loans to and
investments in foreign countries, a fact which
helps to show the folly of perpetually increas
ing armaments, and gives a new reason for a
non-provocative and conciliatory foreign pol-

icy."

The Biggest Farms

in the World

Some of our far Western ranches are still pretty large, but the Australian "station" has nothing to equal it on this side of the globe. An Oregonian paper thus describes some of these "stations :"

One James Tyson has about 2,000,000 acres, or

a territory nearly as large as three States like Rhode

Island, one and one-half Delawares, or even one-
third the size of Vermont, or one-seventeenth the
size of Iowa. He has nearly 1,000,000 sheep or the
equivalent in cattle. One Mr. McCaughey has one
station of 1,214,877 acres, with some 500,000 sheep.
James Wilson has 640,000 acres, or just 1,000 square
miles, in one station, and over 400,000 sheep. I have
a friend in the interior, whom I visited recently, who
has 500,000 acres and 300,000 sheep. One can drive
100 miles on a straight line on his estate. Of this
500,000 acres, 70,000 are freehold, and the rest is
leased from the Government of New South Wales
on long time, for a definite annual rental. I have
another friend, a member of the New South Wales
Parliament, who holds 240,000 acres in Queensland
on long lease, at an annual rental of one farthing, or
one-half cent, per acre. Recently the Government
sunk an artesian well on this land that flows 3,000,000
gallons per day, according to newspaper reports.
Most of this station, I am informed, is good land.
All these stations, like the petty dukedoms of
Europe, are named, and the names, when pronounce-
able, are not easily forgotten. But their names serve
a better purpose than mere ornament.
As this line will, therefore, be

As there is a
considerable difference in altitude, latitude, soil,

a purely commercial affair, government offi-
cials are ordered not to interfere with the gains vegetation, breed or care of sheep, there is a very
or losses of the company, and the promoters
are promised tokens of imperial approbation
if they are successful. The edict is addressed
not only to people in the capital, the provinces,

noticeable difference in the wool, and the reputation
of the station has no little influence on the price of
the respective clips. In the English trade reviews,
or prices current, the names of the stations of Aus-
tralia become as familiar to a large business class as

are the names of the nations of the globe to the average educated man.

Mining in
British Columbia

The "Engineering and Mining Journal" says: "The attention that is now being paid to British Columbia as a promising and safe field for the investment of capital in mining enterprise is fully warranted by the past few years' development work, carried out under great difficulties. These difficulties have consisted, firstly, in the inaccessibility for many months in the year, under ordinary conditions, of some of the best mining territory, and, secondly, even in the summer months, want of continuous communication by water and rail. The latter obstacle is being rapidly overcome, and the most important camps, before snow comes again, will be in much better shape for regular shipments, and at fair freight rates instead of those they have hitherto experienced. The former drawback, viz., that of a long and severe winter, cannot be changed, but it will be materially mended in the future by the railroad exten

sions now being carried out, and which will be kept open just as are the Canadian Pacific

and other northern roads."

The experimental culture of flax Flax Culture in the Puget Sound country, conducted this year over a wide area under the supervision of the Puyallup station, promises to be attended with satisfactory results. The establishment of a plant for handling the raw product on Bellingham Bay is also in progress, and next season may see Puget Sound flax culture assuming commercial importance. Many tests of the product have been made by manufacturers and experts, in every case returning the most encouraging results by comparison with the best and amount of yield, and also in the value of product of Europe, both in quality of fiber the seed for commercial purposes. The Seattle Chamber of Commerce, which recently sent a large quantity of flax straw to Barbour & Sons, the great manufacturers of Lisburn, Ireland, have been informed that the samples were excellent and very similar to that grown in the Courtrai District, Belgium, the recognized home of superior flax.

The British Consular
Service

The seemingly paradoxical statement is made by the English trade paper, the "Iron and Coal Trades Review," that the United Kingdom has perhaps the most complete and costly consular service in the world, and

yet that it has on the whole unquestionably

the most ineffective, from the traders' point of view. "This," the journal quoted says, "is a broad and sweeping charge to make in reference to any branch of the service, but, unfortunately, it is an ower true tale.' Every trader, every manufacturer, every exporter knows to his sorrow how difficult it is to get the consular and diplomatic officers of her Britannic Majesty's Government to meet their reasonable views and aspirations in reference to commercial affairs. Our old tradition of the service, which has become crystallized into a confirmed habit, is that the consular officer is not required to take any initiative in introducing or promoting business, but has simply, like Captain Cuttle, to stand by' until he is called on to do something, which is usually a mere matter of routine, and of no particular service to anybody. The German consul is generally a much more sentient being. He is always ready, perhaps for a substantial consideration, to aid in advancing the interests of his country's commerce, whether it affects the community or merely the individual.”

Natural Beauty

Just now the territory along the line of the Lehigh Valley System, which extends through Nature's Wonderland, from New York to Buffalo and Niagara Falls, is most interesting to the tourist. The foliage is in full bloom, the flowers are wearing their brightest hues, and as the train speeds along over rippling streams, through verdant valleys, and glides easily over the mountain grades, one is impressed with the natural beauty and grandeur of this route. Fast trains are operated between New York and Buffalo and Niagara Falls, there being four trains westbound and five eastbound daily. All locomotives burn anthracite coal, and the torture to the flesh of hot cinders and detriment to clothing caused by the soot, so highly objectionable on roads burning soft coal, are agreeably missed. Dining-cars à la carte are attached to day express trains. This is also the route of the Black Diamond Express, the handsomest trains in the world, composed of library, café, and dining cars, sumptuous day coaches, and magnificent Pullman observation parlor cars.
