It is not out of place to cast a glance into ^he future, in order to diaoern in what direction electricians are working in the domain of electric railways. One of their main objective points is to attain higher speed than is now reached with the fastest express train, and enough has already been demonstrated to show that this is by no means impossible. There has been for some time in operation at Laurel, Md., a system of electric railway, originally designed by David G. Weems. When it was recently inspected by the writer, with his watch iu hand, he noted a speed of the ekctiic locomotive of nearly one hundred and twenty miles an hour. The electrio car there employed is cigar shaped, pointed at bath ends. Tho electric motors are constructed with a revolving armature which is mounted directly on the axle, ao that no intermediate gearing whatever is employed, Tho curiously-pointed ends, of the car, which might by some be considered fantastical, have their raison d'etre in tho fact that, at ihe higr? speeds at which this car ia run, the rt-sistaiico of tho air is by far the greater retarding iLiiueuoe; much greater, in fact, than the reaisranco due to tho axle aud rolling friction, which at lower speeds is predominant. - From "Tho Electric Railway of To-day," by Joseph Wetzler, M. E , in April tb'crilmer. A frojereattve Periodical. "The Illustrated American" is a pro gressivo periodical. Week by week it improves not only in letter-press but its pictures. The publi.-btrs seem to have enter taiued a novel theory. They attract immediate attention through tho handsome colored supplement*, sustained it with more pages of handsome illustrations tbau any weekly picture paper in tho world, and finally secured the interest of its purchasers with admirably selected reading matter. It is plain to see that this national weekly news magazine has come to us with the intention to icmaiu. At first it would appear that it was a worthy aud enterprising scheme, but now it is plain that it was founded on good common sense; that Its projectors were right in their theory that a good thing will bring its owu price, aud that which is entitled to support will receive it.

Resulted. By the death of Sister Cronse tbo EvangL'lioal Sabbath school has lost a faithful member; one who worshipped with tbe people of God when her strength would permit, and who studied, advised and practiced those things which tend to promote the peace and prosperity of Zlotr. She was highly esteemed by all Christians who knew ber, and by her consistent life she held the respect and confidence of all oluBses.
