CO-OPERATION. Attention has once more been directed to the sub- ject of co-operation by the Co-operative Congress, but in the discussions which have taken place no new facts of much importance have been brought out. With regard to co-operation for distribution, it is generally admitted that excellent results have been accomplished. The movement has put tradesmen on their mettle, and even if it had had no other conse- quence it would have been of real benefit to the community. Unfortunately, productive co-operation does not seem to make very rapid progress. At one time it was believed by social reformers that all our hard economical problems were to be solved by co- operative production and we may still hope that the idea has a future, for under favourable conditions it evokes some of the best qualities of the working class. But there are many formidable obstacles in the way. In the first place it is becoming increasingly difficult to carry on successfully any business which is not conducted on a great scale. Competition is driving small undertakings from the field, and co-operative producers, like individual capitalists, can hope to make considerable profits only by being prepared for large expenditure. Again, one of the most essential conditions of productive co-operation is that there shall be rigid organisation, and a readiness on the part of each partner in the enterprise to sacrifice his own notions in deference to the will of the majority. This is a condition with which English workmen are not very ready to comply, although, no doubt, their pre- judices in favour of extreme individualism are to some extent giving way through the influence of Trades Unions. A still more serious difficulty is that societies for co-operative production need managers who are both prudent and enthusiastic. An individual capitalist has the strongest possible motives for looking sharply after the minutest details of his business. If any mistake is made, it is he who will be the principal sufferer; if his schemes prosper, the profit will be his own. The manager appointed by a body of co-operative producers is not personally so deeply concerned, and is not, therefore, likely to do his work so well unless he happens to be a man of exceptional ability and character.— The Graphic.
THE GUNS OF THE FUTURE. The new guns which have been designed to main- tain the naval supremacy Æ Great Britain are in an advanced state, but they have to undergo a course of experiments to settle the range tables and other par- ticulars, and it will probably be the beginning of next year before they are ready for sea. This will, how- ever, be earlier than the ships which are to carry them can be completed, and there will be ample time available for a full and leisurely study of their re- quirements and capabilities. The first of the four 63-ton steel breechloaders for her Majesty's ship Rodney will be shortly finished, and will be used as an experimental gun, care being taken that it is not damaged in the process by any of the surgical opera- tions to which experimental guns are occasionally sub- jected. Although 17 tons lighter than the 80- ton muzzle-loaders on board the Inflexible, the 63-ton gun is expected to surpass the older weapon in its destructive power. It will probably throw a 13jin, shot of 12501b. weight, wioh a powder charge of about 5801b., and the esti- mated velocity at the muzzle is to be 2100ft. per second. The 80 ton gun projectile weighs 17001b., but the cartridge is but 4501b., and the muzzle velocity recorded is 1600ft. per second. Should the new gun realise expectations it will penetrate 29in. of wrought iron armour at close quarters, and prove too much for 27in. even at the liberal fighting range of a thou- sand yards. Still more powerful, but not in the same ratio of increase, will be the 110-ton guns now being manufactured for H.M.S. Benbow. There are three of these guns ordered, one of which will be sur- rendered for the purpose of scientific experiment, while the other two are sent on board ship, where, however, they will not be wanted until the Mid- summer of 1886. The projectile will. be lô¥n. diameter, and weigh 18001b. or 20001b. The powder charge will be the enormous one of 9001b., or half the weight of the projectile supposing this to be 18001b., I el on which supposition the velocity may be reckoned at 2050ft. per second, and its power of penetrating armour at 31,1 in. near the muzzle, or 2in. less at 1000 yards. The new guns will be vastly superior to the Italian 100-ton guns, which are at present at the head of all the naval artillery in the world, and they are to the like extent in advance of the 100-ton guns which are doing duty for England on the forti- fications of Malta and Gibraltar, although these are larger in the bore by 1 giu. The substitution of steel for wrought-iron admits of heavier charges of powder, and this fact makes all the difference. Two huge sleighs for the proof trials of these and such like guns are being built—the one for use at Woolwich, and the other for Shoeburvness, whither both the experi- mental guns just mentioned will be sent for practice at the sea ranges. To Shoeburyness there is also to be immediately sent the 80-ton infant, which has been returned to Woolwich from the Inflexible. The inner tube of the gun is unquestionably cracked, but this is regarded as a trifling injury, and before it is repaired the gun will be fired with a series of heavy charges at the targets which have been put up at Shoeburyness to represent the Spithead forts. These targets, which are respec- tively faced with granite, wrought-iron plates, and compound steel, have already been attacked in a course of earlier experiments, and the compound steel has shown to very great advantage. The double barge Magog will, as heretofore, convey the 80-ton gun, but L u for the 110-ton gun a still larger craft is being built, which is to be called the Gog, and measure 20ft. onger than the Magog.
A fond father told his little boy that if he was good his mamma would bring him a baby brother or sister, and asked him which-'he would like best. He said, if it made no difference to mamma, he should prefer a large rocking-horse LAW AGAINST TAKING SNUFF.—A Parisian robber, who was arrested for stealing snuff out of a tobac- conist's shop, by way of excusing himself, exclaimed, That he was not aware of any law that forbade a man to take snuff."

These wonderful Pills are valued at the humblest beartiui ab well as in the houses of comfort and wealth. They work a thef- 3ugh purification throughout the whole system, without duor- Aering the natural action of any organ,and eradicate those germ* of complaints which consign tens of thousands to an early fPave. Debility, Loss of Appetite, Headache, and Loumes* of Spirits. These Pills will, in a few days, effect a truly wonderful change in Debilitated Constitutions (no matter their exciting cause). M they create a healthy appetite, correct indigestion, remic ire exem of bile, overcome giddiness, confusion, sick, beadache, and &U those gloomy forebodings arising from a bad stomach or dis- ordered digestion. 7 The Medicine for Females, Young and Old. For overcoming all obstructions and restoring suspended secre- tions, there is no medicine to be compared to these Pills. UHI- versally adopted ap the one grand remedy for Female Complaints, these Pills cannoifail, they strengthen the system, and always bring about what is required. To females entering into woman- hood, or at the turn of life, they are invaluable, being a perfect safe-guard against dropsy, headaches, palpitation of the heart and all nervous affections often distressing at those periods. Complaints Incidental to Children. Whooping cough, measles, scarlatina, fevers, and all diseases of the skin, may be immediately checked, and soon cured, by these purifying Pills. No mother should be without them. On3 two, or three (reduced to a powder), may be given nightly witis the certainty of doing good. Nervous Disorders. Any derangement of the nerves effects disastrously both the body and the mind. To the nervous invalid these Pills are of vital necessity, as they impart tone and vigour to thfl internal organs, and consequently to the nervous system which pervades and connects them. Hence their marvellous cures of hysteria, low spirits, spasms, fits, nervous twitchings, and other kinds of eomplaints.
