The new winter cars of tho Port

Norfolk yesterday morning, and will
be sent out to the power house to?

new era in the matter of electric rail?
way equipment, being both ornamental
and more comfortable thou any cars
hitherto in use on electric railways. The
motorman Is entirely protected from
the elements by mans of the vesti?
bule, which opens into the main body
of the car by double doors. The Inte?
rior, of the cars is solid mahogany,hand?
somely carved, and they are heated
ami lighted by electricity. The win?
dows have roller shades, all the trim?
mings are bronze, ami there is nothing
wanting to make these cars as luxuriant
as the Pullman palace cars. The com?

catering to the aesthetic taste of its
patrons, and we hope their enterprise
may be duly rewarded. The tracks of

(From the Chicago Chronicle.)
The heroine of a romance In real life
lias Just died; This was Princess Vic?
tor!? of Capua, daughter of tin- brother
of the Kins of Naples. A very hand?
some woman of the Amazonian type,
she lived alone for many years in her
chateau;; near Lucca, her one hobby
and object in life being the breaking In
of wild horses. The peasants "I* the
neighborhood used to call her Diana.
She would drive a foni-ln-V.and of hair
broken animals through the most rug?
ged mountain passes with a resolution
which astonished sill who met her.
I5qually strange Is the story of her
birth. Her motticr was a beautiful
Irish Rill .who. having attracted the
hve of the heir presumptive 16 the
throne of Naples, accepted Ids hand,
but refused to live at court because
his family denied her the privileges of
her rank. So the pair retired Into ob?
scurity and lived on the revenues of the
Prince's (states. She had only two

I It is characteristic of the porversilj
of human Intelligence to find the most
amusing things in tin- midst of the
most serious circumstances?such as
railroad accidents, for Instance. It i>
related that a solemn-faced Yankee
woman was once riding on the train
from Brookfleld to Stamford, Conn.
Somewhere between the two stations
the track spread and the train rolled
down an embankment.
The solmn faced lady crawled from
beneath tile wreckage and asked of a
broken-legged man who was near:
1 "Is this Stamford?"
"No. ma'am." the man gasped, "this
is a catastrophe?"
"i ih, dear." she answered, "then 1
hadn't oughter got off here, had 1?"
This anecdote is much like a still old?
er one which. In its original and proper
form, came from Scotland. An old
Scottish woman was taking her first
Journey, to the very next station, on a
railroad train. On the way a switch
was left open and the train went Into
the ditch with a crash.
As soon as the old woman could regain
her senses and her tongue she called out
to the guard, who happened to be on
the same wrecked car:
