Key West, Jan. 31. On Friday
one ot Gen. Weyler's supply trains
was dynamited on the railroad near
Citzj, north of Cienfuegos. Two
bombs were exploded under the en-1
gine and four under the train, being
fired by electricity as the train was
crossing a trestle. The engine was
blown apart and tne cars were splint- j
ered. They rolled over the trestle
into the ditch, the fall completing j
what the dynamite had left undone. !
Out of the guard of 100 soldiers on !
it lorty-five were instantly killed or;
terribly injured. The others surren
dered as a force of 200 Cubans ap
peared. The train was looted, the
insurgents s:curing a small field piece
that Gen. Weyler had just ordered
After securing all the provisions and
ammunition the cars were burned.
The prisoners were released, and the
Cuban captain sent Weyler a box of
sweet bread with a polite note. The
Captain of this Cuban band was an
American named Burke, from Indi
ana. The famished condition of the peo
ple in the Pinar del Rio section, and
especially at Artemisa, San Cristobal,
and Pinar del Rio City, is well

M-MMarren At Hrk Hon,
London, Feb. 1. A dispatch to
the Daily News trom Athens, dated
Sunday, says that serious news has
been received from Heraklion:. It is
stated that ten Christians were mur
dered Thursday while outside the
gates of the city, and that armed
bands of Mussulmans leave the town
daily for the purpose of plundering
and burning the villages of the chris
tians. The dispatch adds that these
outrages are evidently in accordance
with hints received from Constanti
nople. The situation is so serious thai the
foreign conusels have wired the Gov
ernor General ofCanea, calling for the
adoption immediately of stringent
measures looking to the protection of
the people. Foreign warships are
now arriving at Heraklion, with a
view to offering .protection to the
Christians there. The Christians in
the districts in the vicinity of Herak
lion are arming and occupying stra
tegic places for the purpose of preven
ting influx of Mohammedans ot the
town and a serious collision is feared
in the near future.

''Aim to be kind.,'' says Horace
Mann, "generous, magnanimous.'' Ii
there is a boy in school who h;is a
clubfoot, dont let h:rr: know you ever
saw it. If there is a. poor boy with
ragged clothes, don't talk about rags
in his hearing. If there is a lanr.t
boy, assign him some part of the
game which does no require running.
If there is a hungry one, give him
part of your dinner. It there is a
dull one, help him to learn his lesson.
If there is a bright one, be not envi
ous of him : for if one boy is proud of
his talents and another is envious o
them, there are two great wrongs,
and no more talent th m before. If a
a bigger or stronger bjy has injured
you and is sorrv tor it, forgive him,
and request the teacher not to punish
him. It is much better to have a
kind heart than a great fist.

Mill Fraiu'isco'H New City II;U.
The new City Hall of San Fran
cisco, which has been in course of
construction since 1872, a period of
nearly twenty-five years, is now about
completed, the final touches being
given to the great dome. The bu'Id
ing covers an area of four acres, and
contains twelve acres of floor space.
The height from the curb to the top
-the balustrade which surmounts
the building is ninety feet. The
Tower dome rises gracefully to a
height ol three hundred and thirty
five leet from the curb; emerging
from the roof of the main building
with a diameter of one hundred and
fifteen feet, it diminishes gently into
a colonnade of Ionic co'uxn, this be
inS surmounted by a Corinthian col
onnade The ball on top is eighteen
feet in 'diameter, and is surmounted
by a statue ol "Progress," twenty-two
feet Irom the base to the crown of
her head and thirty feet to the top ol
the torch which she holds upraised
in her hand. The dome xvas con
structed after the model of St. Peter's
at Rome. The cost of the tower
dome was $410,000, and of the en
tire building, including the dome,
$5,785,000. Ladies' Weekly.
