English workmen do not view wlti- complacency the Introduction of th American locomotives on tbe Midlam railway. Tbey are lyit only an af¬ front to tbeir national pride, but they see In them s positive menace to the engineers' trades union, wbleh hds been one of the moat powerful In all Europe. The Amerlean loromollve ir placed on Ihe rails in fireat Britain Bt a cost of from 20 to .10 |ict oent le.-i-i Ihan the Brillah maktrs lan prodme Ihc satne sort of maihine. So t'.ie working of the Amerlean locomolivei Is watched wiih much more than ordi¬ nary Interest by men on both sides of Ibe ocean. If the machines ran be made tborougbly adupled to British requirements at such a saving of coat to the Brltliib railway companies, it meana that the Brillsh inaker must produce them at a Uge cost or else be thrown out of the market. That means lower wages to the British workman, and against tbat he will Aght with all bia characteristic ob¬ stinacy, as he has to the Introduction If labor saving machinery. Even the long drawn out and disastrous strike wbieh made possible tbe Introduction Df the American locomotive, has not taught them the whole of their lesson. ¦Phere Is even now a proposition on foot that the union of locomotive drivers shall adopt a rule prohibiting members from handling an American- made locomotive, when the engineers' union shall reach the concluaion If it loes, that the Introduction of the American machine threatens seriously the wages ot their trade. noatoo'a I.lbrarr* AgreemcnlH have been signed for Ihc purehabe of tbe old public library building In Boylaton street, Boston, by the Frederick L. Ames estate for |8D0,- 000, and tbe formal transfer will be made some time this month, according to the Transcript. Forty-four yeara ago the corner stone of the library building was laid, and three years later the building was completed and dedi¬ cated. After forty years of occupancy for library purpoeea It was abandoned for the new structure In Copley square. Joshua Bates of Bngland, a bauker born In Massachusetts, contributed $50,000 toward the building fund, and to this amount other donations were added. The building cost |36S,000,and at that time the number of books in the reading room was 10,216; number of volumes In the library, 22,0-17. Among the contributors of books were: Theodore Parker, 12,000 volumes; Geo. TIchnor, 7,500 vuliimes,Including a val¬ uable Spanish collection; the sons of Dr. Nathaniel Bowdltch gave their father's library ot 2,600 volumes and $600 <n cash for the purchase of books; Abbott Lawrence bequeathed $10,000; Mary C. Townsend, $4,000; Jonathan Phillips, $30,000; Mrs. Sally Inman Kast. $1,000. In 1855 Joshua Batef gave a large number of books. Por tne Uanda. ..'When the hands are very dirty It Is better to rub thera thoroughly wlUi old cream before washing thero. Then wash In warm water, using pure soap and a nail brush, rinse In cool water and dry thoroughly on a soft towel. Two-thirds ot all women dry their hands very Imperfwtly, and then won¬ der why the skin Is rough. A few drops of a good hand lotion should be rubbed all over the hands and allowed lo dry In after they have been In wa¬ ter tor some time, as so many hou.se- kepcrs' hands must be so often, and alwaVs at night. The hands sboiild not be exposed to cold air for some time after they have been washed. D**pe«t Wells In th* Worlll.

Professor Stengel, one of the Oer- nau ilolegatesattbe Czar's Peace Con¬ ference at Tbe Hogue, baa just pub- lisbeil an article in which he takes tbe riew that eternal peace ought in uo wi.ae to be tbe aim of culture. Tbu isscrtion tbat war is opposed to civil¬ ization, art, scieuco, anil imlustry bo bolds to bo utterly wrong. It is not tbe intellectual achievements of a na¬ tion that ileciile its fate, but its bel¬ ligerent etreugtb, he say..!. English papers bave Jiscovereil that Vienna, Austria, has aet the example of proviiling bicycle tracks along the streets of tho ciiy. Tbis is because a concession was recently granted lor n uew sIreet on comliliuu that it shoulil contain a track lor tbe use ot bi¬ cyclists. They uilvise the municipali¬ ties of Oreat Britain to follow the ex¬ ample thus set. If tbe Britiaherswill cast their eyes westward they will find tbat this sort of thing has buen done in America in a number of cities dur¬ ing the past low yeara, and that '\'i- funn is by no meana tbu leailer iuthia ino of progres.H.
