occasion to exam
ine the grain-carrying
which Uncle Sam
has for some years
and one result of
this inspection may
be s?en in the recommendations which
he will make to congress for the con
tinuation of the work.
The Sault Ste. Marie canal Is at the
entrance of the highway thus provided.
Between Lake Superior and Lake
Huron there is a drop so great as to
create rapids In the St. Mary's river
which ships cannot risk shooting. Ac
cordingly the United States has con
structed a ship canal and locks around
the St. Mary's falls, which, admitting
vessels at the Lake Superior end, al
lows them to drop slowly through and
letting out of the water until the Lake
Huron level is reached, when the lower
gate is opened and they can pass
This work was originally undertaken
by the state of Michigan more than
two-score years ago. Indeed, its first
suggestion dates back more than half
a century; but delays were experienced,
and work on It was not actually under
taken until 1853, when a company was
organized, under an act of the legisla
ture of New York, which, at a cost of
about $1,000,000, or nearly double as
much as was estimated, carried out the
enterprise, completing it in two years,
as agreed upon, and opening It in 1835.
The enormous value of this waterway
In transporting not only the grains but
the ores of the northwest became at
once obvious, and the canal in turn de
veloped the industries of the northwest,
bo that soon enlarged facilities were
needed. Congress had contributed 750,-
000 acres of land, which had been used
as an element of value In the construc
tion of the original canal, the contrac
tors taking this land in payment for
the construction. However, It became
svident that, In order to secure a proper
amount from the federal treasury for
Its improvement, it would be necessary
to transfer the canal from the owner
ship of Michigan to that of the United
States. This was accomplished in the
year of 1881. In the meantime, how
ever, congress had, eleven years earlier,
made an appropriation of $150,000 for a
more capacious lock, and this was com
pleted shortly after the transfer Just
spoken of, and Is now in use. The total
amount of expenditures on the lock and
the improvements of the canal exceed
But history repeated itself in this
case, since by the time that lock was
completed it became obvious that a new
and much larger one would be neces
sary. Congress was successfully ap
pealed to, and half a dozen years ago
the huge lock now under construction
was undertaken. It will be open for
use next year. Briefly stating its di
mensions, It has a length of 800 feet be
tween gates and a width of 100, and will
accommodate vessels drawing twenty
one feet of water. Thi3 is sufficient even
for the great whaleback barges and
steel steamers that carry from 50,000 to
100,000 bushels of wheat. The stone
side walls of the lock are 1,100 feet long
In all and forty-three feet high. The
work on the big steel gates, which are
five in number, including both the lock
and guard gate3 for the upper, lower
and intermediate locks, is already near
ly or pite completed, and so is the
masonry of the canal. What remains
to be done during the present year and
the greater part of the next is the con
struction of the approaches and the

Leather made from the skin of the
kangaroo is one of the new products
in the leather line. It is soft, strong,
and the light grades are particularly
well adapted for light summer shoes
and for shoe tops, while the hoavier
grades will bear more usage than any
other leather finished on the grain side.
The light skins are made into the finest
brilliant glazed kid and in dull finish
for ladies' fine shoes, and the heavy
ones are finished for men's fine work.
Much of it is crimped and sold for
tongue boots. Shoe laces of good qual
ities are also made of it. The skin of
the kangaroo has a wonderfully mus
cular fibre, which contributes largely
to the strength of the animal, enabling
the females to carry their young in
their pouch until old enough to take
care of themselves, and aiding the kan
garoo in his long leaps when in motion.
The animal is a native of Australia and
adjacent islands. It is a distinct spe
cies, and has no counterpart In other
countries. There are a great number of
families, some scarcely larger than a
rat, others of almost gigantic size. The
giant kangaroo (Macropus major), the
family which furnishes the most vaiua
ble skins, was discovered by Captain
Cook about a century ago, at which time
it attracted much attention among nat
uralists. The natives of Australia call
the old males "booma," and are slow
to attack them. The "booma" has
paws as large as those of a mastiff,
thotigh of different shape. His feet are
his weapons, and when attacked he is a
dangerous antagonist. When raised to
his full height his hind legs and tall
form a tripod, upon which his body
rests, carrying his head as high ps that
of a man on horseback. The kangaroo
lives upon vegetable food, and roams
over the plains of Australia in large
flocks. Its teeth are so constructed
that it can feed upon roots and live up
on barren plains, where other animals
would starve, and to Its destruction of
roots is attributed the sterile plains so
common in Australia. When feeding a
large male stands at his full height and
acts as sentinel, while the balance of
the flock lio on their sides and browse.
At the slightest approach of danger the
sentinel sounds the alarm, and in an
instant all are erect upon their hind
feet. They leap with their forepaws
clasped close to their body, the tall
stretched backward, while the powerful
thigh muscles are caused suddenly to
straighten to the Joints, by which act
the body flies through the air on a low
curve. The ordinary jump is about
nine feet, out thirty feet is often made
at a leap. When pursued by hunters,
and on level ground, or on an up-grade,
they ;an outrun the fleetest dog, but
down-grade they lose their balance and
roll over. The flesh of the kangaroo
furnishes excellent food, Kangaroo
venison being considered a dainty dish,
while the tail furnishes an excellent
and nutritious soup.
Electricity Kill Weed.
Weeds along railroad tracks are now
killed by the "electric weed-killer." It
consists of a car carrying a dynamo,
which sends a heavy current into a sort
of rake of fine wires dragging among
the weeds on each side of the track.
As the wires touch them the weeds are
"electrocuted" down to their smallest
rootlets. It is proposed to introduce
the same system in farming.

Account of Their Life and Work,
N 1SS3, IN THE
preface to his
fs.nce et de Jeu

nan spoke thus:
"The person who
had the greatest in
fluence on my life
I mean my sister
Henriette has al
most no place In
this book. In September, 1SC2, a year
after the death of that precious friend,
I wrote for tha few persons who had
known her a little book sacred to her
memory. Only a hundred copies wore
printed. My sister was so modest, she
had such aversion to the noise t;n
world, that I should have thougl.l 1
saw her reproaching me from her tomb
If I had given those pages to the public.
At times I have had the thought of
Joining them to this volume. Then it
Seemed to nie that there wotid be a kind
of profanation in that. The little book
about my sister was read with sym
pathy by a few persons who had kindly
feelings toward her and toward me. I
must not expose a memory that Is holy
to me to the rough criticisms which
form part of the rights a man acquires
over a book when he buys it. It seemed
to me that in inserting these pages on
my sister in a volume offered for sale
I should be acting as badly as If I ex
posed her portrait for sale in an mic
tion room. The book will, therefore,
not ba reprinted till after I am dead.
Perhaps, then, there may be added to
It a few letters from my friend which
I shall select myself."
In a codicil to his will, dated Nov. 4,
1888, Renan wrote: "ily wife will de-

Renan, his son, the well-known paint

In consequence brought out a new edi
tion 6f "Ma soeur Henriette." The
book, published hy Calmann Levy, is
charming, simply and gracefully gotten
up, as should be a monument erected
to a beloved memory. It is adoraed
with many designs by Ary Renan and
Henry Scheffer, brother of Mme. Renan,
and of Ary Scheffer, tho painter, and
by portraits of Ernest Renan, when a
young man, and of Henriette Renan.
The pictures represent the honso in
which Renan was born at Treguier; the
cloister and cathedral of Treguier, un
der whose shadow the future author of
the "Vie de Jesus" was brought up, and
the house at Amschlt in Syria, in
which Renan and his sister lived so
long during the period of the mission
given him by Napoleon III., where Mile.
IJenan died of fever.
Renan's father was a sailor. He was
drawn into large speculations. Not at

calculating, constantly checked by that
timidity which makes of a sailor a ver

One day the ship commanded by Re
nan's father came home without Us
captain. No one ever knew whether
it was suicide or accident. The sea
gave up the body. "It was burled in
the sands, where twice a day the waves
come to visit it."
'From that moment," says the au
thor of "Ma soeur Henriottu," "our
condition wa? poverty." One of Ern
est's brothers, his senior by fifteen
years, went to Paris to seek his for
tune, while Henriette, only 17 years
old, undertook to bring up her little
five-year-old brother, gave lessons, and
provided with difficulty for the necessi
ties of life. A suitor presented himself,
but she refused to marry, considering
herself bound to look after her younger
brother. At lust she left homo, going
to Paris In the hope of earning more
money, and In 1S38 called Ernest Renan
to her there and made him enter the
little seminary of St. Nicholas du
Chardonnet, directed then by M. Du
panioup, later tho celebrated Hioi ct
But another separation was to occur;
Mile. Itenan, wishing to pay in full
debts left by tho disastrous specula
tions of her father, nccepted a place as
governor in the family of the Count
Zamoytikl, a rich Polish family, whoso
home was tho castle of Clemensow in
Austria. It was during this absenco
that the religious crisis came to a head
in Kenan's mind, that led to his giv
ing up the priest's career. . His Bister
had been led by the absolute sincerity
of her convictions Into a slmllur con
dition of mind. "When I told her of the
doubt that tortured mo and made it
my duty to abandon a career where
absolute faith Ih necessary," writes Re
nan, "she was delighted, and offered to
help mo in this difficult transition."
Hut first he must assure his material
existence. Ho entered a boarding
school where he obtained food and lodg
ing for his services. Mile. Renan added
to this 1,200 francs, all her savings.
"Those 1,200 franca were the corner
stone of my life, I never used them all,
but they gave me the tranquility of
mind necessary for me to think at my
ease, and saved me from overburdening
myself with hack work that would hare
Tho year 1850 was at last to reunite
brother and sister. Then began in that
house, No. 7 in the Rue du Val de
Grace, retired and quiet, a life of com
mon work. Mile. Renan bad acquired
a very fine education, to which her
brother devotes pages In which Le
shows treasures of affectionate emo
tion. "Our solitude was absolute. She
had no acquaintances and did not try
to make any. Our windows opened on
the garden of the Carmelites of tho Ruo
d'Enfer. The life of those recluses,
during the long hours I spent at the
library, in a way regulated hers and
was her only amuseme-.'. Our views
on God and tho world v ere in general
identical. There vas no shade, how
soever delicate. In the theories I was
then forming that she did not under
stand. On many points of modern his

of our two consciences that had I been
tempted to prove false to it she would
have been near me, like another part
of myRolf. to recall me to my duty. Her

thus very extensive. So wo
