to .ii) tiiiio.t nn Iiour is casi'v attaina
lf on a three feet gauge road.
In freight trains on the old gauge the
di.id weight and freight weight ere
about equal. On a narrow gauge the
ncight of tars to the weight of freight
n l lo 21,. Tliti!". in a load of 1.440
Inn., old gauge, the weight of the carj
will be 720 ton?, and that of freight
the aiiie. lit a load of 722 ton, on
the nariow gauge, tho caw will weigh
but 20G tons, and the freight GIG
ton. In other words, a small
engine weighing 25 tons will
haul about two-thirds the paying matter
hauled by a largo engine more than
doublo the weight, and in cars of much
le?s costly construction. On the full
gauge road an engine of&7A Ions will
haul 720 tons freight and 720 tons cars.
On the narrow gauge, two engines of 25
tons each will haul 1,024 tons freight
with only 412 tons car weight. Great
as is this disproportion of dead weight,
it is rendered much greater by the fact
that so many cars run empty return
trips. If comparisons of gross tonnage
are made, the saving effected by narrow
gauge is necessarily immense.
Ihe economy in construction is very
great, as well as that of equipment.
Ihe weight of bridging, nnd necessar
ily the cost, are materially lessoned,
as the weight of trains is considerably
reduced. Machine shops and buildings
generally can be made smaller, and ma
chines much lighter. Graduation is re
duced HO per cent, at the lowest. In
rough countries it is reduced 50 per
cent., and in mountainous regions a nar
row gauge can be constructed where a
wide road is impracticable.
The confidence which the experi
ments of the Denver and Rio Grande
company have inspired, insures the con
struction of narrow gauge roads in new
countries, not only as feeders to main
ines, but as truuk lines themselves.
The problem of cheap land transporta
tion promises now to be speedily solved.
If the experience, even of a few months,
fully sustains the facts we have given,
there must be, necessarily, an immense
revolution m the railroad business of
the country, an enormous reduction
in the cost of transportation, and, possi
bly, a very great depreciation in rail
road value?. Take, for instance, the ef
fect upon the Baltimore and Ohio road
of the building of .-uch a road from
William-port to the Alleghany coal
fields. Would not a new road, the co?t
of con. ruction of which was not more
thau one-half that of it- rival, and
the workin" expenos of which were far
less, itecei-arily attract to it-elf at once,
by rates of freight profitable to it, but
ruinous to its antagonist, the entire
bu.-ine.-- of the coal region : and would
not tho Micce-.- of such a road immedi
ately lead to its own extension and the
constiuction of other.- ? The matter is
oiw of far more importance than was at
fir.-t thought, and wicn we iWW-t tbat
experience will lead to greater perfec
tion and larger economy, it is difficult
to foretell what may not be the effect of
the narrow gauge on the railroad sv.s-
tem of the country, and upon its ma
terial development. Cheap ropds mean
cheap rates, increased travel and traffic,
!id largo dividends, and necessarily
lead to the development of valuable dis-
trici- by the construction of new roads
and pro. 'ding additional facilities.

In connection with tho pargraph on

Instantly followed, and John Murray fell
over in tho wagon, a blooding and man-
gieu corpse, pierced in tno bead, neck and
breast, by some seven or ctcht buckshot.
Tho mules attached to tho wagon took
a fright, dashed off ono hundred or more
yards, ero thoy could bo checked, and from
this causo not'a gllmpso was seen of the
murderer. On rcturninc to the spot, an
ambuscade was discovered in tbo fenco cor
ner, formed by breaking persimmon and
other boughs to r-crro as a screen for tho
murderer, whilst ho accomplished tbo hell
ish purpose, in which he was only too suc
cessful. Thus perished a man well known in this
community, a useful citizen and a thrifty
farmer. His beautiful homo on the Vien

In Independence, there are 30 or 40
some of them the finest kind of animals

Borne of the dairies have hud, in the last
week, 15 blind milkers nt ono time. The
eves begin to swell a little, lasting gener
ally, from Sdays to 2 weeks. As soon as
the swelling commences tho eyes also be
gin to run clear water, Just'as through
some hard and foreign substanco was be
neath the lids. After tho runnings ceas
es, a hard, white film covers the eye-balls,
completely dtitroying tho sight. This
disease docs not seem to affect trio general

chant, ; either in tho quality or quantity of
milk, no pain, no unrensincss ot any kind,
no peculiar thirst Indicating foaver, and
indeed, no symptom that would indicate

is not by any- manner of means nil his
names. He has called hftnei.tr lf.rrr
Wilson and half n icon of nii.. ni.tn
sobriquets. Ills proper namo is supposed
to bo Mc Williams, as bo was born under
that namo some tblrty-flvo years ago, In
the llltlo vlllago of Crotesvlllo. in this
state. As far as heard from thoro was
nothing atrocious in his ntvfwlnn(. mi

was a comely lad, and
THE PET or THE NEIOHIlonilOOD.
In this respect ho has held lilt nwn rn.
markably well for noarly forty years. Ho
is a fino looking fellow and exceedingly
mild mannered. Ho Is tall and graceful,
has good features and complexion, and an
alluring smite, while tho fascinntlon of his
gaze is as Irresistible as that of a serpent.
In addition to his personal charms ho
has a wonderful memory, and can proach
liko a Ilceclier, lecture like a Oough, and
sing liko a mocking bird.
.Last summer bo sponi at .uonrovio, ina..
where, as an interesting widower, ho caused
qulto a sensation among tho fair. As a re
vivalist, bis success was a crcutt to tno
United Brctbron Church. His success
as a sensationalist was complete when ar
rested and lodged in the Itenssclacr jail.
AN ACCOMl'LISUEU CLEr.QYMAN.
The requisition from another county
was for breach of trust. Ho had settled
down in a community as a christian
(Campbcllito) minister, on tho condition
that ho should bo furnhhod with a horso
and buggy to mako tho circuit. Barkis
was willing, and straightway set out on
his mission. In nrocoss of nreachinr? he
got doctrinal points of tho Church so
mixod up with a moro liberal plhn or sal
vation that hocreatod a disturbance. In
secular point of vlow It would have
been considered a general row. Tho ac
complished gentleman, snuffing the brtczo
of discontent far and near, took unto him
self tho horso and buggy and decamped.
For this offence ho was arrostcd and
lodged in the close quarters of the jail.
Ho was waited upon In his new quarters by
acoupio of brethren in the faith. Ho was
asked why he had not preached tbo doc
trine he had bargained to.
"Hy O , I preach a better doctrino of
my own, and if you will get mo out of this,
as suro as thcro'a universal salvation, I
will preach for you again."
in connoctton wltb bit arrest ttioro aro
many interesting particulars. When ac
costed in that friendly way known to po
llco officers, with a slap on tho shoulder
and a contlo admonition that ho was
'wanted, ho replied :
A HEALTHY TWIN.
"Thoro must bo some mistake."
"You aro Charlos 3IcWilIiams. of Kens.
elacr, luto of Monrovia?"
"Mistaken again. I never was there In
my life. Tbo fact is. I am n twin. Mv
brother roscmbles mo very much. Nwl
come to think, I believe he did spend last
summer in Monrovia. Ho is my twin ;
looks astonishingly like mo."
"You," said theofficor, "look enough like
tho man wo want to suit us. Come along."
Tho moment thoy wcro outsido tho door
be commenced swearing, and a gentleman
wno was present says no never beard such
blasphemy beforo nor since.
His soft-hearted captors permitted him
to have all tho whisker 'he wanted, and
by tno time bo reached tbo Justice s ho
said nothing to criminate himself, ns bis
captors thought he would when under tho
intluenco of liquor.
consigned to the juil, ho still had a por
tion of whiskey left, und the first thing ho
did was to compel tho fow inmates to go
down on their knees, as he expressed it
to '-take the sacrament.'' This blasphemy
over, ho z.ia.ched a fiddle from one o." tho
cells, and beginning lo plav, ordered tho
prisoners to dance. Ho behaved like a
madman, and the poor fellows were forced
to obey him.
Then ho formed them in lino and sang
about a hundred hyms to them. As 1
said before, bis voice is really magnificent.
AH A ntOAMlST
also bo is a great success. Ho has two
wives in Wisconsin, threo in Indianu, und
Itt'd in Ohfn Al n n.n.r.1 flilnr Kn m...
ried daughters of well-to-do men in what
ever church ho happened to belong to.
i.t. i- ' . .
mi mvuriio rnouo ot procecutng was to
forge certificates of llcenso to preach, und
It is astonishing how successfully ho car
ried on bis system of knavery within a ra
dius of a few miles.
On one occasion bo was traveling on foot
through tho country, when ho stopped by
tho waysldi at a houso of the humblest des
cription. Upon inquiry bo found that tho
houso had belonged to u widow, but on the
settlement of her huilmnd's oitntn it wm
tnkon to pay his debts. All the property
she possessed, or had any claim to in the
world was a cow anu n can.
McWIlllnrni nett-nllv miirrlnd hur that
evening, and tho noxt morning, with her
consent, urove tno cow anu can to tno next
town, sold them and nut the rnonov in his
pocket. Thut was tho last seen of him by
tlio widowed bride.
His trial docs not como off for several
weeks, und he Is hopeful as to the result.
