The real elevation of which man is capable never leaves him as It found him. It may or may not affect his sur- rouudings, but it will ahvays raise his character and trans$orm him into a better or wiser m~ noMer man. No one can do this for Mu). It must be done. 'It at all, by the action of an inward force, enhancing his powers, uplifting his thoughts, purifying his feelings. and elevating his aims. i. Let parents talk much and talk well at home, A father who is habitually utlent in his own house may be in many respects a wise man; but he is uot wise in his silence. We sometimes see par- ent~ who are the life of every comp'lny which they end, r. dull, silent, uninter- esting at home among their children. If tlmy lmve not ment~d activity and mental stores sufficient for both. let them first provlde for thetr own house- hold. It is better io lt~stmlet ehihlreff and make them tmppy at home. than to charm strangeI or amuse friends. A silent house is a dull piat.e for young people--a place from which they will escape if they can. They will talk or think of being shut up there: and the :~ youth who does not love home is in danger. ii ..................... The telegraph brings the interesting ~. lnfornmtion that Dr. David Jacobsen. a well-known New York physician, was divorced from his wife. Nora Jacobsen. on the ground of abandonment. The l~otitioner swore In court that he had recently learned that the ~iaee which lie formerly had occupiet~ in his wife's had been usffrpe5 by a pug l~tely and that the dog seemed to her heart so~eompletely that there was no room left f})r himself. Accord- tingly he was compelled to sleep on the whlle Fide was given the qnarters usually assigned to head of the household. This is In- n sad case. but before the doctor given a divorce we believe he have been compelled to prove his wife's Judgment was faulty ; to a husband. Very has all the best of such a comparison. be widespread satisfaction United State that at a recent pleasing to note timt on tilts o(.eflsion ,% diamond belt was tile medium of her success, l)ianlond belts in the past hqve been more in w)gue among suc- cessful pugilists, lint now that they lmve 1)een introduced to the British .w- lstoeracy by Americlm enterprise con- tests for diamond belt houors will as- sun:e a new significance.

The principle is understood and the working out of tim solution of the practical p~ol~ lenls connected with its utilization is expected to be achic~-ed within a few months. The i~'andes~ront burner transforms heat rays imp light rays, and gives gas nearly six times the effi- ciency of the open fla~lo. The ~ecupe:- atlve principle now sought to be em- ployed in conjunetio~ with this burner in tim combustion of ga~ is the same a.s that used in the rolling mills, where- by the waste heat ordin')rily passiug out through the chimney is ca]Tie( back inte the flame by a21sorption and nmde to perform tile office of bringing otherwise unavailable ingredients of combustion to the temperature of igui- tiou. An important economy comes in where tlle Bunsen lnn'ner is treed. "~s carburetted or enriched gas, which is needed for the open bur er,tsnot requir- ed for theBunsen bnrner. Itis~ta~-xitaai it costs the gas compaa~l~ 35 to 40 cents per thousand to enrich their gas. This look~ like an over-liberal e~tlmate; but whatever tile cost is, It is an expense which cau be avoided when the new burners come into general u se~ and then there wilt be a neat opportunity for the con)panics to lowgr the price of gas to consumers.
