New Vork. to Iondon in IOO Hours
Kailroad magnates are trying to
figure out how they can stir up busi
ness a little by lauding New Yorkers
in London, also Ixmdoners in New
York, within. 10O hours of the time
of starting. The salient feature of
the plan is the cutting down of the
water route to the lowest possible
limit and lengthening the land route
correspondingly. One route that is
being considered is as follows: New
York to I'ostoii ami on to St. John.
N. 15., on fast express trains, St. John
to some port on the west coast of
Ireland by a new line of fast steam
ers; by rail, probably new line, to
Dublin; thence across the Irish chan
nel on swift packet steamers, and
then to London by rail.
The estimated time over this route
is four days and four hours, that is.
100 hours. The line of steamers
across the Atlantic may possibly be
fitted with turbine engines and
petroleum-burning boilers, for greater
The I ton sen of legislative Action.
Senator Aldrich haying told the
president there would be no currency
legislation at the next session of con
press, now comes Senator Hanna who
tells hitn there will be no tariff legis
lation. If some other senator, sarcas
tically declares the Chicago Journal
(Pep.), will inform him there will be
no isthmian canal legislation, another
that there will be no subsidy legisla
tion, another-that there will be no
trust legislation, another that there
will be no revenue reduction legisla
t ion,, and another that there will be
no legislation of any kind, it will save
him a world of trouble, lie need send
in no message, and congress can pass
certain necessary appropriation bills
and adjourn. It could get through
Iwfore Christmas, and thus relieve'
the country of n good deal of uneasi
ness stud alarm.
Then when Messrs. Aldrich, llaiinn
and the rest 1 bought that there
ougnt to le some legislation for the
leuelit of somelody or other, ami a
few more taxes laid on the back of
the )eople, congress might le allow
ed to meet and pass laws to carry out
the ideas of these very wise and very
lenevolent conscript fathers. What
a happy thing it is for the people of
the I'nited Slates that they have
such thoughtful statesmen to take
care of them, who know so well how
to get "the greatest amount of wool
with the least amount f crving!"
This was the height of statesman
ship in the time of Louis XV. Put
what was it Louis said? "Apres uioi
le deluge" and the deluge came.
This may be no lesson in history for
us, but we can inform these "no leg
islation" senators that the American
people have a way of asserting them
selves. The process is slow but it is
Stately laoce of Old.
The minuet is already known to many,
were it only through ths innumerable
pictures executed by pustelist-s now dead
but still celebrated. Tho dainty gestures,
the graceful steps, the HWeepiug -court o
fiies, are no secret "to ns, but the Kara
band and the pa vane we do not kuow
much about, although they are well
worth being -studied. The saraband is
what one might call ail almost religious
dance, for it is so deliberate, so soJema
and yet no gracefully beautiful. The
cavaliers, when they bend before their
fair partners, literally sweep the floor
with their plumed hats, while the la
dies brocades and laces flutter around
them like the wings ot some bright hued
butterfly about to take its flight. The
promenade a sort of polonaise which
follows, the couples marching with im
posing demeanor behind one another, is,
beyond everything else, liecomiugly
dainty, although somewhat strait laced,
but one cauuot bo anything but en
chanted by something so eutirely re
moved from the hurry and scurry -seen
in our salons when dancing is written
on the cards of invitation.
The puvane is t-urightlier, more like
the gavotte, aud brings into constant
play fans, well managed trains aud
again plumed hats, the tout ensemble
making up u tableau of unsurpassed
charm and aristocratic motion. The es
sential qualities of all these dunces are
simplicity and grace, for they afford no
opportunity for displays of gymnastics,
of hurried athleticism.no force of biceps,
no pushing or jolting or elbowing. They
are the very essence of easy gliding and
of keeping time to strains of melody,
which remind one involuntarily of the
evanescent odor of some rare old per
fume like those we still liud in tho silk
en sachets made by ijpr great-grandmothers.
Ths Barlul tiun.
Iu the delta of tho Gauges a mysteri
ous sound is sometimes heard, to which
the name of "Barisal gnus" is given,
because of its resemblance to the dull re
port of distant artillery. Similar noises
are well known to the lighthouse keep
ers and fishermen of Ostend and Bou
logne, wnocall them the "mist ii-ouffera.
or fcg dissipators, and generally hear
them on the evening of a hot day in sum
mer. Although the sounds are compared
to tbe detonations of gnus, they are not
very like these, and they occur at irreg
ular intervals. Their origin is enveloped
in mystery, but some physicists regard
them as electrical detonations, such as
might be produced by flashes of ordinary
lightniug or the explosion of globe light
ning, while ethers refer them to the
shocks of fluid matter iu the Ijowels of
the earth or the rumbling of slight earth
quakes. Public Opinion.

"Lai ina Ogdeii versus Alfred Ilib
bard. slander.' was the third case set
for a hearing before the Altooua coun
ty ircult court when that body was
convened in May.
The grounds on which the plaintiff
brought suit was an item which ap
peared in Th: Uegister in April to the
effect that Miss I.aviua. then ft un
certain age, was alut to institute legal
pro ceilings against a gentleman of mi
lertaiu age. name unknown, for the
putloinliig of her affections, which in
the course of time had lieeu ruthlessly
thrown aside to make way for another
set of affections.
Miss Lavina stoutly aliinncd thtit her
affections were intact and in her keep
ing, and always had been, and she
estimated the value of n statement to
the contrary at $1MM)0.
The trial lasted more than n week,
and its progress was watched with un
bounded Interest by the community at
large, which hardly knew whether to
be pleased or disappointed when the
jury returned a verdict requiring Ilib
bnrd to pay, to the last penny, the

her lawyers Miss Lavina demanded an
explanation. Ilibbard that evening
called on Miss Lavina to conduct the
rt:i:ainder of the disagreeable suit
from a personal standpoint.
"Miss Ogden." hp said bluntly at the
beginning of the interview, ' I am sorry
that anything should have been printed
In my paer derogatory to your char
acter. The item which has proved to
be- such a Ihmh of contention was given
to me by a correspondent as a piece of
news and I used It. "I assure you that
Iu the publication of that paragraph I
was actuated by no personal motive,
for until the lieginuiug of this trouble
you were a total stranger to me.
"You claim that your pride and good
name have lnen Injured to the extent
of ?10.0o. Miss Ogden, I have been
studying you closely during the last six
weeks and I am convinced that If there
Is any woman deserving of that
amount it is yourself.
"The only property I have iu Ihe
world is the Way back Register. The
whole plant wouldn't figure up to half
that amount. 1 have but one sugges
tion to make I will give you a half In
terest in The Itegister. Is that satis
factory'.'" Miss Lavina took ten days to con
sider the matter. Her answer made
Ilibbard quail. She wanted $10,000 or
Its equivalent within another ten days.
When his second respite drew to an
end. he called on his antagonist again.
'"I couldn't get the money. Miss Og
den," he said In great contrition. "I am
sorry for your sake and my own; more
so on your account thau mine. I have
come today to offer another com
promise. I freely give you the Way
back Itegister complete. I have but
one other thing to throw in to make up
the balance. That is myself. Do you
think that I, individually, am worth
the Ave thousand and some odd dol
lars? If so, I can cancel my indebted
ness at once."
It was a unique proposs!, aud the law
of the eternal fitness of things required
that It should meet with a unique re
ception. "This is not sudden," she said calm
ly. "I foresaw from the beginning that
you would do this very thing. You are

of convenience, but you will learn to
