With a view to advertising Erin's beauty spots, the Great Southern and Western Rail- wiay Company of Ireland -are sending to EnL-la-Td a fully-equipped! Irish jaunting-car, which will make a tour of the principal manufacturing districts of the north. After thorough tests the Berlin postal authorities have. placed' an order for thirty motor tricycles as a means for the rapid transit of mails, says "The Motor Cycle." E»ach will be equipped with a 4-h.p. water-cooled' motor, placed beneath the rider's seat, and! if the above machines under the adverse conditions of every- day use equal the trial machines, the service will be considerably extended in the near future. Seafaring is the most perilous employment. The, "Labour Gazette" points, out that of 21,688 fatal accidents during the past five years, 3,758, the largest number, was in the shipping industry. The next most dangerous trades are mining, quarrying, and working on railways. 0 Birkenhead magistrates, in view of the dead- lock existing between the justices and licensees, have decided that renewals be, granted and) the undertakings asked for erased1 from the back of the licenses without any prejudice in case of an appeal. P.alatial buildings are to be erected in Wash- ington, at a cost of 42,000,000, for the private accommodation of all senators and representa- tives. There will be marble halls, Venetian stairways, mosaic floors, a sumptuous dining taloon, and every inodlern convenience. Details are being published in Paris of pro- jects for swimming the Channel during the coming summer. So far, the news is all from the Dover side, where two competitors are al- ready training themselves in the open sea. These are A. J. Weidmann and C. Simonds, who are both powerful swimmers, well known in the Channel towns. Weidmann hopes to make the effort some time in July.
