A Roman Catholic Cathedral is being built in China 300 feet'long by 150-wide,, with a spire that will make it" the most conspicuous object in the imperial city. It is not generally known that the Catholic missions, commenced in China about three, hundred years ago, have made constant progress in spite of frequent and cruel persecutions,'in which there have been hundreds of martyrs. There are now not far from 3,000,000 of Roman  or "slipgap," to leave one rail for them to pas; under. This gives them a downward tendency, and lessens their inclination to jump or look upwards, as they are sure to do when a lazy attendant throws down a part of the rails, and makes them vault the rest. Cattle may be taught to go over any fence by the careful training they often get for this end, and performed as follows :.  First, starve them, or give them poor feed; 1  which'will make them light and restless. .As-soon as they go over the lowest part of the fence after better provender, make them jump back again, find put on|oue;more rail, saying— "I guess that will keep 'em out." Next dny (as of course they will be in mischief again.) repeat the process, adding another rail; in a nm» of short time they will take care. of themselves, i but s!ir and harvest the crops without charge. i at a table, anu  i Bar Anecdote.—Mr. R—, Q.
