The last word on the subject of pun- i.shin^ chiiiiren; wtiich has been pretty 1 thoroughly discussed in- the X. Y. tt'irld during the last few weeks, is spoken properly enough by a mother of live and,grandmother of -ix. She says: "Most, people overlook one fact in the training of children. They are to be trained, not for children, but for maturity. A mother ought not to make tW;'hi meek, 'subhcrvient, cowardly and:-brokon-w.illed, for these are n<»t the characterijjl'u-s thut will best serve them as rnen and women. They rieed'training in self-respect and self- control, and this is riot done by degrading them or netting thorn an example of loss of solf-coutrol in their punishment. >l jf the children of to-day differ from thoHO of previous generations, it is only in tho samo degree that their ,parents di|Icr, since men and women have not the warms simplicity of char- actor at|d habits that they had fifty or one bundled years ago. Hut there is the same innocence, the same love of goodness, the same susceptibility to affection in tin; children in the last do- cade of tlie nineteenth century that there was in the beginning of tho lirst, wh<;n it was said of them, 'Of such is tho kingdom oHioaven.' "Them is something unqualifiedly cruel in a parent, cither deliberately or in the hcut of passion, torturing a weak little child who is wholly at his or her moroy. It is scarcely loss than diabolical, since the little one lias no redress and no appeal, but is at tho mercy of tho one- who should be Iho readiest to shield it from sufTeriiig. People who depend on spanking in training their children begin at the wrong end, und are tolerably sure to end as wrongly as they begin. As for Solomon- -whom every beaten boy and girl should halo as he deserves--he was not so successful with his own ohildron that his precepts with regard to this matter need have any weight with u thinking, loving parent."

Brinr/ing them to Tlinf Art- Jielievoj to Cross tlie Sahara licTurK Tliey Invacjp AJgerla. The locusts are reappearing in Algeria in greater numbers tha'n ever in spite of the efforts that were made by the French Administration last year to annihilate the pests. It is now believed that they come clear acro.-s the desert from the Soudan. The period of incubation varies from twenty in thirty days, ami the locusts require only ab.Miit two months to attain their complete development. This fact gives a reali/.ing,sense of the prodigious numbers in which the terrible insect may multiply during its progress across the Sahara. Great clouds of the locusts have already been seen on the northern edge of the Sahara making their way north. The news comes from Touggurt and Ghardaia in the Sahara that early this year the locusts suddenly invaded thotie places in such enormous numbers that for four hours they fairly darkened the heavens. About a month before similar clouds of locusts were reported in the valley of the Niger Hiver in the Soudan, and it is believed that in the four succeeding weeks they had journeyed to the northern part of tlie Sahara. Thanks to the experience that has been gained during the three past years of incessant warfare with the pests, it is hoped that a large part of the crop this season will be saved, though at enormous expense to the Government in the way of digging jiiu and carrying out other measures by which they chuck the further advance of the invading insects.

When tit locomotive was brought to a standstill its pilot was hardly five feet from girl's skirts. "I told them you'd have to stop.'sbt said: "I knew you daren't run oral me."

' A curious little railroad train goS crawling up and down the mountain from Tres Finos to Burl's Lime Kilt, in the Gaviian range, San Benito conJ; ty, every day. It is probably tki strangest railroad that ever was sceii yet, thus far, not a word has overbeei printed regarding it. The train rnovM on a curious single track,and is drafl by an engine set low on it. Both th|! engine wheels and those which sup-. port the cars have a strange pivot*! piece of steel that sets in the track, for it must be borne in i that the track has a slot in it, like that seen in a cable track, ditioii to this, each wheel has on e;ich side of it, so that it cannotgf. off tin- track, no matter how abrupt the curves. The road, as complet% is now nine miles long, but wki pushed through as intended itwillM. fourteen miles' in length. Three; nW run it. .These, consist of an enginW; a lireman and a brakeuian. place there is an S KVfcot mounted at tin- rate of six foet to hundred, yei the engine puffsT ,u with three or four iouiled c mil in the least bothered in an}' v There is one grade a i|iiarter of a B| ioug, in which an uveni"-" of f< llir ' e ,;| is gained i () the hundred.
