Could DUtaoce juleii V-ne's Travelers.
It is quite probable that some or those who
read this poe will t wfco an all rail journey
from New York to London, or from London
to New York! A recent writer has been
carefully thinking outtlio'wholoBcheins. How
can this ever be whe n :i,000 miles of Atlantic
ocean separate the two pliicesf he asks.
England lies to the east of the Cuited
States, but to read it by railway the trav
eler will start westward, and, riding day
after day and nigM after night, until he
reaches the opposite side of tho globo, where
west and east meet and separate, and then
keeping on still west ward, he will arrive at
London, having w.-ll nigb traversed round
This is no idle fan -y. The scheme involves
no ocean ferrying, no stupendous and im
practicable bridgo building. From the east
ern fcbore of America to the western border
of England there ftretches continuous dry
land, with the exception of tho narrow and
comparatively shallow straits of Behring,
between America a id Asiu, that are a small
obstacle; the narrow English channol, only
twenty miles acrots, and the rivers which
science already knon-s how to span.
The English end c f the projected line, how
ever, is of comparatively small importance.
The real problem lies in spanniug the tre
mendous distance that lies between tho north
western boundary of the Unit-d States and
the eastern frontier of Europo.
TJIE PROPOSED ROl'TK.
From New York to a little beyond the
northwestern bound ary of tho United States
continupus rail communication Is already
open by way of the Canadian Pacific railway,
which will soon be i-implemented by tho com
pletion of a oonuect on between the Northern
Pacific and the British American liue.
Euroi, from ths Atlautic ocean to the
Ural mountains, wtich separate it from Asia,
is now crossed by t le locomotive, its eastern
border being reached by two great Russian
railways, one torn mating at Orenburg and
the other at Ekaterinburg, which last lies
nearly due east from Moscow and southeast
from St. Petersburg. The vast Russian em
pire in Asia, stretching from the Ural moun
tains to the North Pacific, aud far up almost
to the Arctic circle at Behring straits, a
distance of thousands of miles, has not as
yet one solitary line of railway. It is across
this prodigious stretch of country, much of it
well eopled, but much, also, an unknown
wilderness, locked a largo part of the year in
the embrace of the Arctic winter, that the
trans-Asiatic line must penetrate.
Buta great step hi thisdircctiou has already
been taken. The F. ussian government feels
the necessity of railway communication
across its Asiatic eajpire, and the czar has
sanctioned a project for the gradual construe
tion of a railway from tho Ural mountains
to the waters of the Pacific at Yludivostock,
the extreme southe istern point of the Rus
sian empire, lying about latitude 42, directly
opposite the north ;rn, most of the chief
islands hi Japan. 11ien that great work is
accomplished, centrj Asia will In brought
Into much nearer connection with America
than now, as Vlad vostock lies almost due
west from Portland, Ore., and the distance
between the two cor tiuents is much les than
it is farther south.
But this will not do for our all rail route,
which must be mud ) by a line branching off
from the great Russian Pucific railway at
some point perhaps thousand miles west of
Vladivostock, aud running northeasterly
through Siberia to JJehring straits.
Tho crossing of the Behring straits is de
clared by some ei eriencod travelers to be
entirely practicable In the narrowest place
they are said to U only ten miles wide, and
while for a part of 1 he year boats can easily
cross, it is asserted that the straits are dotted
with islands, by mews of which, and inter
vening bridges, a t ontmuous passage could
Alaska does not, it must be admitted, offer
a very encouraging field for railway build
ing, so far as either climate, topographical
features or productions are concerned, but
it interposes no oltacles which money and
skill could not overcome.
Tho distances over which the railway would
have to be built toenrry out this great scheme
are, in round numbers, about as follows:
United Mates bounda'-y to Eebrioi? straits. . . 2,000
Uebrtaf; straits to j uictiun with Russian
Pacific railway 2,000
Junction to European line ut Ekuturinburg 8,00
Total yet to be contracted 7,000
This looks like a t -emendous length of line
to build, and yet ab ut au equal amount of
railway mileage wts probably built hi the
year 188S lu the Umted States alone, and In
one recent year almost double that mileage
Some of the distances by our great railway
aud its connections would be about as fol
New York to Port Moody (British America). 8.SO0
Port Moody to Behrin ? straits 8.000
Behring straits to Un 1 mountains. 3,600
Ural mouutains to London 8,000
Total New York to London, oil rail 14,000
This would be a pretty long rail journey,
but it would be short compared with many
ocean vovages that are now made; in fact, it
would bo only atxnn three and a half times
as long as the jouriey from New York to
San Diego, which If undertaken every day.
Allowing the moderate average of twenty-
nve miles an hour, i he trip from Now York
to London would take about twenty-three
days. Then tho tourist might add a neven
days' sail from Livt rpool to New York, and
thus accomplish a trip around tho world in
thirty days, which would beat Jules Verne's
travelers out of sig it. New York Journal.

WHY NEGLECT IT?
Graduate of the London Optical Institute, and located at 57
"Washington street, Chicago, is stopping at the Harper
House, this city. Has all the latest improvements for taxaming
and testing. Ophthalmoscopic examinations made in children
who cannot use judgment in answering questions.
No chaige for consultation or advice. No exorbitant prices.
It requires differently constructed lenses for the scores of dif
ferent defects. You can see the force of these remarks.
In my youth I had excellent sight, but toward middle age my sight began to
wane. I kept on buying glasses here and there, and though I could see better with
them than without them, yet. after reading awhile, my eyes felt drawn and- uneasy,
sometimes feeling a pain above tbe temples and other distressing aches. I consult
ed Prof. Anderson, and now my sight is as good as it ever was. I cheerfully rec
ommend him to all- Dr. J. O. Harris, 29 Main Street, Ottawa, III.
I am a physician and have been in practiee in Ottawa for the last 80 years.
When I was a boy my sight was none loo good. Wben I was 40 years old it became
vastly worse, and I could not see distinctly at any distance. I consulted Dr. An
derson, and I can now see better than ever I did in my life I say success to him.
Dr L. Dyer .Ottawa. III.
A reporter met Samuel Parr on Madison street yesterday, and noticing tbe
happy expression on his countenance and the things ha had on bis face, ventured to
remark: ' Mr. Parr why those glasses, and why that happy expression on your
facet" "Wei!, sir, I will tell you why." said Mr. Parr, smiling graciously upon me,
"the one is to see with and the other is to let it be known that I can see. If you
had suffered as I have, and felt greatly relieved as I do now, you would surely smile
too.'' Mr. Parr said he has taken from school when a mere boy, and as a conse
quence had received almost no education, though bis father was well off and inten
ded him for the bsr. He went to farming at Rutland, three miles out of O' taw a.
and has been at it 20 years. He said if he did not know where the Professor lived
and could not get another pair, that money could not buy them. After reading a
little, his eyes run water, his head ached and sometimes felt heavv. As a parting
shot he glanced at the reporter and said he could count every hair in his (the repor
ter's) mustache. Ottawa Journal.
The above is true, as any one can find out by writiug 8. E. Parr. Ottawa, 111 J
I cannot say what the Professor has done for me, but one thing I do know, that
whereas I was blind, almost blind, now I see. Mrs. 8. 31. Porter, Aurora, III.
If a word of commendation from me will be of any assistance to those afflicted with
defective sight. I have no hesitancy in adding my name to the many who have so
highly testified to the ability of Prof. Anderson as an Optician. I have put him to
tevere tests by bringing him cases that were considered very diffleult by Chicago oc
ulists, and now the patients can see by his method aa well as ever.
Dr. 8. D. Pollock. Galesburg. 111.
I trea'ed a lady for several months who suffered from headaches, dininess and
dimness of vision, and after prescribing all the medicines known to science, I heard
that Prof. Anderson was in town, and sent her to see him. He gave her glasaes.
and since that time she has been a happy woman. Beyond a doubt he is master of
his business, and I cheerfully recommend him to all.
Dr. W. T. Patterson, Aurora, IU. r
I have no one traveling with
as my agent is a fraud.
Having engagements elsewhere, the Professor will remain
but a short time. All suffering from complicated vision had
better call at once.
