Another terrible steamboat accident has occured on." the MISSISSIPPI. The steamer Nick Wall ran on to a snag, and the shock caused her hurricane deck, heavilv laden to fall in at the time that she began to fill with water.' A hundred lives are reported lost. "A School Promoter in a, Poor District makes a very' sensible suggestion in the l'inu.-s to the Council of Educa- fion. He proposes that the Council should issue by th& Department a series of plans suitable for rural schools, accompanied by accurate specifications and bills of quanti- ties on which tenders could be safely invited. The supply of approved plans with specifications would greatly reduce architects' charges (a heavy additional burden on buildings in small country parishes), and would also save both the Council and School Boards, or Committees, much vexatious correspondence, now often required before im- perfect plans sent up from country places can be accepted and passed. KITCHEN BOILER EXPLOSIONS.âA correspondent of a contemporary writes :â" Next winter let us hear no more of deaths resulting from the bursting of kitchen boilers, when the remedy is so near at hand and costs so little. One of the smallest safety fusible plns, sold by the Na- tional Boiler Protection Company. Manchester, applied to any hermetically sealed kitchen boiler will protect it. The fusible plug should be screwed into the top of the boiler, and protected with a pipe, so that when called into operation the steam and hot water may lie propelled up the flue. This fusible plug is partly made of a metal which melts at a heat a little in excess of boiling water when, therefore, the boiler is sealed up by frost, the water soon becomes hotter than 212 degrees, the soft metal of the plug melts, the plug falls to pieces, an opening is made in the boiler for the steam, and an explosion is prevented. Every hut-water heating apparatus should be fitted with olie of these safety plugs, and is not safe without it."
