Science may point to this fact as one of the great est of her nineteenth century achieve ments. It has come from the brains ot many great inventors. The ap plications of steam power to ocean navigation and the steady evolution of the maiine engine co.ild not have made possible the transportation of fresh beef anel mutton for thousands' of miks without a corresponding pro- j gross in the application oi chemical j science. b'laan the statistic of this grc.dt ; traffic, which we find in the Record,; it appears that when it began, in iN.Soa it made a small beginning.

The Saturday Review, of London, is generally recogirzed as unusually well informed and careful on such points. In its latest issue it states that "in mere number of counts fifty eight, as against America's forty-two. but the superiority is wholly ficti tion." It sums up the American force of battleships and cruisers as thirty to fourteen lor Spain, the former all "built since 1SS5," the latter antiquated." And it con cludes: "If the worst came, there is j a chance that the Spaniards might penetrate the long naval line of eie- encc along the American shore, and ome damage be fore they were overtaken. But that they would very soon come to a disastrous end in this -dventtire is no more to he doubted than that they wou'd from the out -l U' ''V'v overmatched in Cuban waiters." Another point of ill greater sigmfcance is the unquestioned superiority of the mor- the Americans. It is not l.oast - to assert that no American army ot 200,000 uouid have wasted two years in futile skirmishing as the Spimards have m Cuba, and there is AVitnlsa Il!j!f-iIvrT .1!miiiiit-nt. !
