The Future of the KmmU
About ti H) miles of the great trans
Siberian Itailroad have been opened for
! travel with befitting ceremonies, savs
the Huston (ilobe.
This is less signilieatit in itself than
in what it portends for the future of
European and Eastern civilization
when the whole road, covering 5,tJ(()
miles, is pushed across Siberia.
We generally think of Siberia as a
desolate province where the victims of
"darkest Kussia" are locked out of the
world; but this immense region of the
earth has vast tracts of fertile land,
and the new mad will prepare the way
for a Hood of cheap grain to inundate
the markets of Europe and appal the
European farmer.
Such a vast speculative enterprise as
this, with rails spanning over a lifth of
the circumference of the earth and
costing li"i,M),i)(Wj for construction,
could hardly be carried through in any
other country than Kussia, where the
co-operation of the Czar counts for
When this load is completed and
unites Asia and Europe its inllueiice
upon the destinies of the East will lie

having possessions in the Orient will

It may iiiean, too, that Russia, and
not the t 'nited states, is yet to supply
Europe with bread, for another I'nUed
States, for purposes of supply, will be
set up in the heart, of the i.asteni con
tinent. The world is wide. The vast re
sources locked up in the almost bound
less Russian empire are relatively un
touehed as yet, to say nothing of the
possible capacities of tiie oriental
masses when aroused from the long
slumber of antiquity by the new on
coming forces of progress.
All Depends on the Heart.

The Oldest Stamp.
Parisian stamp collectors liave been
discussing the qu"St.ioti whether the
English stump of IM!), called the Row
land Hill stamp, is really the oldest in
("tisti-m c, and the conclusion arrived
a' is to this view. They claim

Humor at the Altar.
Some funny stories are told about
the marriage service. One of them re
lates how an old man, brought rather
unwillingly to the altar, could not be
induced to repeat the responses. "My
good man exclaimed the clergyman, "1
really cannot many you unlee von do
as you are told." But the man s; ill re
mained silent. At this unexpected
hitch the bride lost all patience with
her future Rpouse and burst out with:
"Go on, you old toot! Say it after
hlra just the same as if you was mock
in' him." '1 he same difficulty occurred
in an' ther case. The clerg'. man al ter
explaining what was necessary and
going over the responses several times
without the smalless effect, stopped in
dismay, whereupon the budegroom en
couraged him with: "Go alidad, pass'n;
go head! 'i'hou'rt doi.i' bravely." Up
on another occasion it was, s'rangely
enough, the woman who could not be
prevailed upon to speak. When the
clergyman remonstrated with her she
Indignantly replied: Your father mar
tied me twice before, and he wasn't
axtn' me any of them impertinent ques
tions at all." .
