= IT is announced that the endowment fund of a ttew York city parish, known far and wide for its good works, has gone beyond the 100,000dols. mark. That noble provision for Christian helpfulness began in a striking way. Twelve shop-girls gave a gold dollar each, and on that suggestive basis rests the guper»-trncture which is to endure through the generations. They did what they could, as did the Ionian in tho Gospels. A NOVEL industry is pursued by the negroes of pass Christian, Missouri. A railway-bridge spans the bay near that place, and when the train is crossing the bridge, the negroes, in boats below, fire off their pistols, the people in the train stick out their heads to ,ee what is the matter, and the wind carries a harvest of hats to the watchers. Seven hats a day per man is called a good haul. TRAVELLERS who have explored all over the world will tell you that what first strikes them about an African forest is its cleanliness, a sort of look as if the whole ground was daily cleaned and dusted by invisible elves. Not a fallen branch is to be seen, hardly a dead leaf. No more striking contrast could be imagined than this, an com oared to a foreat in the great weat of Amerioa.
