Senator Farr's pólice liquor bilí, as to the burden of proof in the matter of selling liquor to minors, intoxicated persons, etc., reverses the law practice in regard to testimony, making the fact of selling, giviug or f urnishing prima facie presumption of an intent to viólate the law, which presumption shall be overeóme only by positive testimony that the person charged with "a violation of the law used all sonable means to inforni himself, and was actually misled by the appeirance and statements of the said party." The bilí is most severe and stringent in its purpose to regúlate the sale of liquors, and to prohibit the sale to minors and intoxicated persons, and to provide a remedy against persona sellingliquor to husbands or children in certain cases. Among other things, it requires supervisors, vil lage marshals and certain officers of pólice in cities to visit all places in which liquor is sold or kept in their respective jurisdictions, to learn if any of the provisions of the twelve long sections of the act have been violated, and in accordance therewith to make complaint to the proper authorities '-and to do whatevei" shall be necessary to bring the offeuder to justice ."

Although he was a prohibitionist in principie he clid not be. lieve tLe people were ready to have this question presented. He thought if the present law and ordinances couldn't be inforced when a case was clear, he was ata loss to understand how it would be any better under a stronger prohibitory law. He thought the people should be edupated up to this question. While men differed as to the best methods to be persued he thoughl they were honest in their convations. The legislators by their votes convinced him that the people of the state were not ready for prohibition, although a time might come when a sentiment would be built up strong enough to carry everything bef ore it. He thought the ballot box was the place to settle these questions. Judge Page was next intro duced and before he closed the audienc had dwindled down to less than 50 pei gons. The Sunday Magazine.

The policy of the conductors of Scrib□tr's iVlonthly in haviug a number of short novéis to accompany their historical serial of "Peter the Great" has proved a fortúnate one. The pubücation of "Peter the Great" has materially increased the cu-culutiOQ ot the magazine, and has resultedin a large sale of back nuuibers anc volumes (there have been oue thousanc copies of laat year's volumes sold iu Englaud alone during the past few montas) and the prinüug of these bright noveleues has appealed to even a wider coustituen ey, anü has been an excellent balance to the heavier material of the history.

Later there will be printed a short serial by H. H. Boyesen, and another by the authcr of "An Earnest Triller," whose long silence since her iirst success augurs well for the new story, lt is expected that these last two wili begin iu the "midsummer" Scribuer.
