crulMr New York steamed across the line,
breaking the world's reoord and winning
lor her builders the largest premium evi
paid in any country. When twenty-oni

new orulser many hoped, but few believed,
that her engines would ever be able to
drive such an immense mass of steel
through the water at this rate. Wheusbi

There has been great enthusiasm in Eng

the latter has attained a speed of twenty

are not armored, but simply proteoted by

only by a patent log which, it is claimed,
indicated 22W knots. This same instru

between that and actual distance covered
is proof of how unreliable patent logs are

The black, dingy, ram-shackle tumble

tiou of the town have given way to a
structure, or rather a series of struc
tures, which are now nearlng comple
tion. Heretofore the carriage factory
looked more like a soap factory or
perhaps a bond boiling establishment
thau like a place where new vehicles
are turned out. Mr. Daniel Wleaud,
the new proprietor, is giving the town
an enterprise ot which every citizen
will have rerson to feel prouuV. The
bulldiug which will be devoted to fac
tory purpose Is a neat frame .structure
two storiei high, 18 feet front and 83
feet deep. On the first floor the ware
room, 00 feet deep, is located. In the
rear is a blacksmith shop. The second
flour is partitioned Into rooms iu
which the ditferent departments found
in a carriage factory are located, such
as the trimming shop, eta Ou the east
side of the factory building immediate
ly adjoining is a dwelling of ample
proportions, This will be occupied by
Mr. Wieaud when finished, and he will
become a permanent resident of town
