THE FUTURE OF CHINA.
A Prophecy That It Will Ite lu the Front
ltank In Fifty Yearn.
C.I Huns Chang, tlio rieeroy of China, is
r'f-orUI us huving lately niuilo the uiisertion
thut within tha next half century China
would Ikj covered with a network of railways;
1I1 it it would have rolling mills and furnaces,
with iuuiifiiso mineral rt-.-wiurecs nnd uiilint
ite.l cbeaji labor to back them, and that China
may do tlto manufacturing uf tho worl.L
While China is proverbially slow in adopting
lho methods of tlie outside barbarians, u
striking chiuio has liecn taking place there
lit.-ly; and t'lay China lias an excellent
Iloi-t of ironclads of tho most modern t-pe, is
(inning and di.scipliuinK its std.licrs after
KiiiN.-aii iii.h1.-1s, iias telegraph lines and at
least one railway in sui-c.-s.-ful opTation, and
is pushing forward in a phenoinenally rapid
way, for coiis,r vative China, toward tho
acipiisitiou of tho majority of tho arts and
miinufact urea tlnt but iately. marked tho

Tlio industrial momentum of a nation of
4Ul,K)0,0(KJ inhabitants, covering one-tenth of
the inhabitablo globe, if onco fairly startec),
is well worth consideration. baron Iticli
thofen, in d.'scribing tho northwest of China,
say that theShunsi district is one of the most
remarkable coal and iron regions in tho world,
nnd lie estimates that at tho present rate of
consumption the coal of this district would
supply the world for thousands of years to
ooiuo. It is claimed by some writers that
Shausi, when more thoroughly explored, will
bear away the palm from I'eiinsylvania,
whoso 20,(W0 sipuire miles of coal land Lave
been heretofore considered as the greatest
single deposit in the world. Ilichthofen says
further that this coal can be very easily and
cheaply extracted on a largo scale, and that
iron oroof excellent n-.iality in found u quan
tities in tho iun.ie.lia to vicinity of tuo'coal
Tlu this as it may, mineral wealth is abund
ant, and when it comes to n question of labor
the Chinese can furnish this to an almost jinv
ith-ss degree, and recruit it front ft chus that is
naturally patient, skillful and content with
small gains. W'o do not agree with the vice
roy in his prophecy that all he hopes for may
be accomplished in fifty years. China is loo
deeply settled in its rut for that, and other
nations, with the many advantages they al
ready possess, will be moving, too, at in
always accelerating rate; -xif CdYiauiil

It is scarcely too much to saj- that he kept
open house for men of letters, and many dis

their introduction to London society. A

ries. A New Kind of Katt IcmiaUc.
Dr. Howard received from Professor D. M.
Vadif a siiiull box containing tLe rattles of a
new kind of rattlesnake, which tho professor
wrote were very nui:..-oiis all along the
course of Dry creek. I'ulike other rattle
snakes, they ore usually found in trees, are
darker colored than tho native rattlers, and
their bite even moro fatal than tho asp of
India. This is news, indeed. Tho doctor
says ho didn't mind, even when a boy, going
out coon hunting in tho early summer morn
ing and losing a dog or two from tho bite of
tho good, old fashioned, diamond back rat
tlesnake of ante-bellum days. It didn't even
make him feel the least bit nervous to find
himself in the middle of a small brier patch
with half a dozen huge monsters, iic-aring
each fifteen or twenty rattles, all hissing ami
singing and gliding about in opjiosito direc
tions. And even now, when ho goes fishing and a
large water moccasin Is in sight, ho amuses
himself by standing 011 the snake's tail just
to see him Fquirm and rm':-r nb"nt. rp.-ii
his white i::.n..ii a. id vainly try to climb up
his leg, or if, )erchatico, ho finds 0110 in a
small tree or bush, as he sometimes does, ho
quietly steals under, shakes him out, just to
have him clamber about his head and shoul
ders like tho cobra on tho snake tamer in the
side show on circus days. IJut to bo pecked
at by a fiery eyed, red rongued, veneinous
death bug in every bush, as ho trolls and
trolls for pike in Dry creek, lias just tho least
tendency to prevent his !ajsing into that
quiet state of dreamy, desultory desuetude,
which, in all climes ami at all times, is half
the charm of those who find pleasure in
handling the 1 eel and rod over tho winding
course of cool streams in shady woods.

and drawn through holes pierced in a steel
plato until it is of tho size required for tho
particular pin to be made.
It is then titkcii to tho pin making room,
where vvu find rows of machines moved by
steam piw er and producing a constant st ream
of pins at the rato of ' to 'J();l K-r minute,
which are removed from the receptacles into
which they fall by the workman and his at

of tho machines.
If wo st:;i!l in front of a machine we see a
coil of bra.s w .'re 011 a revolving ilruin. Tito
end of tho wire passes through u hole and

a holo in a small iron plate. Watch c ir.
fully and we see a pretty little hammer
strike tho end as wn as it appears 0:1 tlio
other side of tho iron plate.
Ty successive blows of this hammer the
head is made. This done, down fulls a sharp i
oiacle and cuts tho wire into the length re
quired for the pin (tho machine c.ni be ad
justed t-.i cut tho pins of any length d,iiv.l).
Thrs process of drawing in, heading and
cutting off goes 011 continuously, and the pins
are thus carried on to too pointing part of

When taken out they are JoyiiU to be cov

them the, bright and lively apiearance which

The pins are then dried bribing thrown
