In the May number of tli3 Amekican

years huvc passed since the brave police

by the Anarchists. Two years, and

tha prevention of a recurrence of the
horrilc deed. The people seem to have

During these two years the Anarchists
have not been uls. Secretly, stealthily,
they have spread their pernicious doc
trines, formed branches of their baneful
order, and laid their plans with the ut
most care to prevent another failure.
Their leaders are not ignorant men.
They are fanatics with brains the most
d inge'ous class in the community. Many
of them believe in their mission and are
willing to die for victory. They have
counted the cost and will fire the mines

If not already too late, the author
would by this article create a public
sentiment that will compel our rulers to
make fcuch laws as are needed for the
protection of our homes and families,
for the very existence of our social sys

it may not pass unheeded nor be too late
to accomplish its object.

A SINGULAR PROP1IECN.

and Afghanistan, followed by the invas

In what matter the prediction is to be

of the prophecy. Philadelphi Inquirer.

Tue Cubans arc greatly excited over

It seems likely that carrier pigeons will
play an important part in the next great
European war. The Frenrh minister of
war has jnst given orders for tho organi
zation or' the many carrier pigeon stations
throughout the country upon a more sat
isfactory footing, aud considerable im
portance is attached to the perfecting of
these arrangements. In addition to fifteen
of these stations, there are in various
parts of France 'j!I0 pigeon flying societies,
owning among thorn 150,000 "homers."
Each of these societies has a military or
ganization, nnd in case of w7ar all tho
pigeons belonging to them would bo at
the service of the intelligence depart
ment. German j- possesses about tho same
number of carrier pigeon stations, and
there are 350 societies, w-ith 5(),00(. pigeons.
In Italy pigeons are actually in use for
conveying dis;p;)tches between the war
office in liouic and the garrisons in Sicily

In Australia and the neighboring isl
ands are seen many large mounds of
earth, which were formerly supposed to
be the tombs of departed natives. These
remarkable tumttli reaching as much as
fifteen feet in perpendicular height and
sixty feet in circumference at the base
are not the work of man, however, but
are now known to be the incubators built
by the jungle fowl and other species of
the small family of llegapodidae, or great
footed birds. Pinch of these great piles
consists of fallen leaves, grasses, etc.,
which tho birds deposit in place by
throwing backward with one foot. Though,
the mounds are usually in dense shade,
the decaying vegetable matter lias been
found to raise the temperature at the cen
ter ns high as C5 degs. The eggs are
carefully placed with the larger cud up,
about twelve inches apart, and are cov,
ered to a depth of at least two or three

Tlio Ants and tho Cyclone.
It is stated that about a century since
there appeared on the island of Grenada
number les3 colonies of ants. No one
knew whence they came, but they so
multiplied that they became fatal to the
sugar cane, and as that was the prin
cipal industry the gravest results were
apprehended. All expedients failed to
dislodge them, and the government, in
1778, offered a reward of $100,000 for any
invention to destroy them. In 1780 nature
came to their relief in the way of a terrible
cyclone and rainfall, which blew down
what cane wa3 standing, drowned out the
ants, and a new prosperity followed,

We live in a different world from that
of our fathers. No other race has ever
known its like. It ha.s witnessed trans
formations surpassing the greatest of
miracles. It has seen cities spring up on
the prairies and become magnificent cen

than a score of years. It has seen one
of the greatest cities of the world, the
rival of the oldest and grandest centers
of foreign wealth, rise iu its might at
