                                       I would  not enter on my  list of friends,
                                       Though  graced  with polished manners and  fine sense,
                                       Yet  wanting sensibility, the man
                                       Who   needlessly sets foot upon a worm.- COWPER.

                      THE  CONVICT   TRAIN.
From The Midnight Sun: The Tzar and the Nihilist, published by D. LOTHROP & Co., Boston.


         EXILES   TO  SIBERIA.
  In a report prepared for the ministerial com-
mission, which is now considering the project of
diverting the transportation of Russian convicts
from Siberia to the island of Shghalien and


districts in the trans-Caucassian and Central
Asian frontier provinces, the inspector of the
Tiumen-Atckinsk route to Siberia states that
during the decade 1876-86, 218,578 prisoners
passed along that highway. Of this number,


no less than 2,867 died on the way. The report
furnishes no record of the probably larger num-
ber who perished on the latter part of the jour-
ney. It is also silent as to the causes of the
2,867 deaths between Tiumen and Atchinsk. -
