A RAILWAY ENGINE'S MILLIONTH MILE.- The fine engine Charles Dickens, which was built by the London and North-Western H ail- way Company in 1882 for ther special express service between Manchester and London, BAA just completed her millionth mile, having run the daily connection, with occasional exceptions through the necessary repairs, during that period leaving Manchester at 8-30 a.m. and Euston (London) at 4 p.m., covering the journey via Macclesfield and Stoke in 4 £ hours. The record has been watched with particular interest by the heads of the London and Norh-Western Loco- motive Department, as the feat is with without parrellel in the annals of railway travelling. The engine has never sustained a breakdown, but has maintained the integrity of her mechanism and speed at comparatively slight expense or alter- ation, leaving the problem as to how much may be got out of a well-nstructed machine as yet unsolved. A recent overhauling is said to have warranted the conclusion that the "flyer" ds as good and as fit for service as she was three years ago. A RAILWAY CARRIAGE WITH BAY WINDOWS, —It has been said that England is as far ahead of America in the matter of railways as America is ahead of England in the matter of carriages. ges, If so, the superiority of our line construction must be immense; for, great as American achiever ments have been in carriage building, ardour for improvement seems as strong as ever. A palatial car has just been built in Massachusetts for the Montreal and Toronto line of the Canadian Pacific. It is 66ft. long; the central "drawing- room," which is turned into a dormitory, at night, is 32ft. in length, 9ft. in width, and", joift in height, and is furnished wit4 a dozen easy chairs. The ceiling is frescoed with A beautiful design representing the four seasons and one of the most striking novelties consists of six bay windows. Besides this apartmdnt. 'there are lavatories-where a quantity of powdered soap slides into the basin of water on pressing AL button-a kitchen, a safe for: valuables, aÍl J "observation room a private state-room, A f library with writing desk and medicine chest; and' other conveniences. The car is -ventilated' ;by compressed air and heated by steam-"from the engine. The Rev. T. Witton Davies, TL}E!R newly- appointed principal of the Nottingham 13aptist College, graduated at London -0 niversity in 1879, and passed first in the, Qcaiptural examination two years later. For the past 11 years he has been classical tutor a Haverfordwest Oölle prior to which for abnef, period he held a pasto-. rate at MFCIV^Y-- Sis translation to Nottingham is one of the first fruits of the E|aptist amalga- mation, he having been a Partieular Baptist,; while Nottingham was a centre of THE General Baptists. The committee of the college are are hoping that the FJM4ST.WILL ultimately allow of. their providing Mr,, Davies with a colleague, who will take .the precedential. and general management duties, leaving Mr. Davies free to teach.
