The New York, New Haven & Hurt-

an electric plant on its Plymouth di

BTuriinco like a regular combination

steam roaas, and it draws a long train
of regular steam road coaches. It has
made a speed of eighty milts in hour,
and has pulled a train of cars with a
locomotive at tho other end pulling
against the motor. It receives the
current from a third rail, but it is also
provided with a trolley, to get the
current from above at grade crossings
and at stations. This must be re
garded as an experiment for the pres

Of progress through internal change
other than through extermination.
This may be accomplished by war, by
labor akin to slavery, or by contact
with a higher civilization and its con
sequent disastrous results to the weak

be subdued, they will make unwilling
toilers; if driven out of the larger and
more fertile island?, some form of
labor must take their place. It will
not be American, it will not be Euro

be Asiatic; and, if left to a free settle

as applied to the Hawaiian islands

Prevalence of the Lying Habit.
uia you ever count up how many
times in the course of a day you tell
a lie, even though you consider your
seir a trutnrui person? You tell a
lie when a friend asks if a new hat is
becoming, when you praise something
your hostess cooks, and when you say
you had a good time, in bidding her
gocd-by. You must lie or offend a
hundred a day, and you naturally pre

those of giving offense, but they are
