A dining room is never complete unless

designs, is in tho reach of the ordinary man.
Come early and avoid the rush.

Fine 'dinner sets and tho

oral hours before friends claimed
the remains and started with them
in a cart for Musselburg, six miles
On tho way some drunken ap
prentices ruaoly halted the cart
and opened the coflin, in order to
see tho woman who had been
hanged. This lot in fresh air,
and tho air and jolting of tho cart
combined to rovivo the BuppoBccl

of tho relatives was reached.
Arriving there sho was carried in
to tho house alive but very faint
and barely conscious.
A ministor was called to pray
for her, but sho soon recovered
sufiiciontly to demand that tho
preacher bo dispatched for a
doctor who could administer re

value to her at that moment than
any minister's importunings. Tho
physician soon arrived and Mag

This is a scono on ouo of tho
most remarkable railroads in tho
'world. It is tho railroad between
Caracas, tho capital of Venezuela,
and its port, La Guayra. As tho
bird flies tho two towns aro only
six miles apart, but tho railroad
that joins them is nearly twenty
four miles long. Caracas is in a
deep valley, but it is two-thirds of
a mile higher than La Guayra,
and tho mountains between them
aro noarly 9000 foot high.
So tho railroad train, that novor
OXCOcdB flVO or BIX Btnnll and vnrw
light cars, winds along tho preci
pitous flanks of tho mountains,
puffs up ono sido of tho valloy
and down tho other, darts through
short tunnols, and keeps up its
very sinuous way until finally tho
glorious valley of tho capital city
bursts into viow. Then steam is
shut off, and tho brakes aro ap
plied, and slowly tho train slips
down tho inward faco of tho moun
tains to its station in tho city.
Tho most charming and exhilar

stage of tho journoy; but this
Bhort trip is not ono of tho safest
in tho world. "Wo havo not hoard
that naturo has over bombarded a
train with rocks from above, but,
says tho Now York Sun, this ib a
contingency that might happen.
Sometimes during violent storms
rocks are detached from tho mass
that towers abovo tho roadbod and
go thumping down upon tho track.
Durinig tho rainy season traffic
has sometimes been interrupted
for moro than a week at a timo by
tho damage dpno in this way to
tho track. It is a groat problora
how to obviate this sourco of
danger, and no solution has yet
