If our ears arc the best, their station
facilities more than make amends. The
passenuer aiToniniodation in the depots,
so far as we have seen, is simply superb.
Nothing flimsy or showy, but absolute

any consideration. The rows ami streeis .

whole city an air of calm dignity, suelias
we have nowhere experienced.

Yesterday :noi nin ihe ' rsl train of

started on its merry trip to Cum' erl in '

bracing business men, rrolroad and city
ollicials. and representatives of the press
boarded the train, it was expected to
be a day of rare enjoyment, and that it
would mark tie 1'einuinf; o! a not.-.'-le

occasion which was to he signalized by
the presence of representative people.

The engine sounded a long whistle, the

At a cr issing less than fifty yards this

unaccountable reason. The car ran over
