Danger from Lightning.
As experience shows, danger is,
less in a crowded town than a vil
lage or in the open country, and,
naturally, the more elevated struc
tures are the most liable to be
struck. Fuller, indeed, in his
"Church History," asserts that there
scarcely ever existed a great abbey
in England which had not been, at
one time or another, wholly or par
tially destroyed by lightning, and
his citations, taken in comparison
with the records of our own times,
are certainly remarkable. In all
cases it is the spire, the tower, or the
dome which has been mutilated.
As to ordinary habitations, all sorts
of theories are in vogue on the subject
of danger and safety, borne rely on
thick glass in windows, and some
on register stoves; others recom
mend stone roofs instead of slate.
and others tell timid people that
they should live in a hollow. It
is contended on this side that there
should be the least possible admix
ture of metal in the combination of
an inhabitable structure, and on
that, that all the bells beneath the
roof should be kept continually ring
ing, just as, In obedience to an old
superstition, cannon are fiied at sea.
The mass of evidence upon this
topic, however, points to the one
conclusion already suggested, that a
good lightning conductor is the sol

good, it is worse than none. Van

Ludicrous Effects of the Appear
ance o'f a Comet in 1712.
As everybody is on the qui rive In
regard to the comet, and as all sorts
of Ideas are "around" in regard to
it, we give the following amusing
sketch gleaned from an old paper :
"In the year 1812 Mr. Whiteon
having calculated the return of a
comet which was to make its ap
pearance on Wednesday, the 14th
of October, at five minutes after five
in the morning, gave notice to the
public accordingly, with a terrify
ing addition that a total dissolution
of the world by fire was to take
place on the Friday following. The
reputation Mr. Whltson bad long
maintained in England, both as a
divine aud a philosopher, left little
or no doubt with the populace of the
truth of his prediction.

American makers of tinware are

plate department of the industry of
this district competition has sprung
up from an unexpected quarter.
For a long time past one of the best
customers of the British maker of
tin and terne plates has been the
United States of America. At one
time we were sending to that coun
try great consignments of tin plate
goods in varied shapes and of dif
ferent values; lately the Americans
liave learned themselves to use up
the tin plates.and now we have them
shipping tin-plate wares to this coun
try, made from the tin plates which
we have supplied them. TheUnited
States manufacturer displays an
amount of ingenuity in Invention
which is but seldom seen in Eng
land, and the handi-crnftsman in
the new world, unlike those of the

to a new pattern nssoon as It can be
shown that it is at all probable to be
a success. The American tin-plate
goods that are now being offered in
tirmingham and South Stafford
shire are described as simply mar.
velous, both as to the price of the
arucies ana me ingenuity displayed
in their construction. Surely there
is something very wrong in this
country when the Americans, after
buying our tin-plates and paying
heavier wages for the manufacture
of the article, are able to offer it
