to suppose that his instinct of sympathy

this story attributes to him. And thus
it is with hnndre Is of other anecdotes

Why "Kates by Kail Tor rassencers
Freight Are So High.. ;
The eminent English railway author
ity, Mr. William M. Acworth, points out
many causes for the differences between
railways in this country and tho United
States. The higher rate of charges on
English roads are thus explained:
The very large capital outlay of Eng
lish railways is of course one main rea
son of' the hijrh standard of rates and
f fares in. England. Exactly , how high
that standard is we have no means of
knowing, for onr railway statistics,
made up in a form that was laid down
by an act of parliament about 30 years
hack, carefully suppress the information
that it is most necessary for us to have.
Ton miles and passenger miles are not
here recorded. We know that each ton
of goods carried pays the railways on the
average about CO cents. If we guess that
the average distance is about 25 miles, we
arrive at an average rate of 2.10 centsper
ton mile, which is not very far from
three times the average rate in the
United States. So in tho case of passen
gers we ini'y truess that the average fare
is about 1.1. t per mile, which though
lower thau the American average, is
higher than in any European country.
Such a result seems very far from satis
factory. High cost of construction might
have justified a high rangeof rates and
fares at the cntset, but year by year the
per mile of line open increases in den
sity, and yet the goods rates hardly come
down at all in the last year or two their
tendency has lieen all the other way
while the passenger fares only come
dovn very slowly. . . '
And yet the explanation is not far to
seek. Onr services have always been ex
pensive to work. They are becoming
more expensive year by year. In Amer
ica trainloads are mainly limited by the
capacity of the engines ours by the
weight of goods or number of passengers
that have had time to accumulate in the
very short interval between one train
and another. . Let me illustrate: If a
man is sailing from New York to Eu
rope, he will choose his favorite line or
his favorite boat, regardless of the time
of day or day of the week at which it
starts. On the other hand, if the Man
hattan elevated were to try to run its
trains only once in 10 minutes in the
slack hours of tho day the street cars
would rob it of the bulk of its iassen
gers. ' '
Now, in England our business is all
between places which in America would
be regarded as close together. We call
Manchester "the north of England," yet
Manchester is only 4 hours from Lon
don. Consequently there must lie trains
between the two points at all hours of
the day, to suit the convenience of pas
sengers wanting to go at any time. Con
sequently, too, each train runs with very
much less than a trainload of passen
gers. Then these trains must le run at
high speeds, for though a few minutes
more or lsjss are of little importance in a
journey of hundreds of miles, a quarter
of an hour out of four hours is a very
considerable percentage. High speeds
mean few stops, and few stops mean ad
ditional trains to serve the second class
stations.; Then high speeds and frequent
expresses for passengers mean high
'speeds and short trains for good that
is, half loaded engines, for an engine
loaded to its full capacity moves 60
slowly occupies the line, that is, for so
long a period that it is impossible to
find room for it.
But it would not be true to Bay that
the goods are worked at high speed sim
ply for the convenience of the railway
management. On the contrary, the de
mand for sjioed in the case of merchan
dise traffic is fully abreast of that in the
case of passengers.' Broadly, it may be
said that the English goods service is
based on the supposition that, between
important towns at least, whatever is
handed to the -railway company at the
r forwarding station over night will be de
livered to the consignee the first thig
n'ext morning. Now, a service such as
this, Jn the nature of. things, can never
be a cheap one. Engineering Magazine.
Two Hundred Inches of Rainfall. ;
Cherra Punji, in the Khasi hills, As
sam, British India, is the "pole of the
greatest known rainfall." In other words,
it is the wettest region on the face of the
earth. Mr. Blandford, at a meeting of the
London Meteorological society, read a
paper entitled "Rainfall at Cherr Punji,"
in which he presented incontestable proof
of the extreme moisture of the country
in question. The records go back for
nearly C5 years, but prior to 1873 are
rather incomplete, there being several
whole years in which no record was kept.
Carefully compiled data from these
weather journals, however incomplete
as they are, prove that quite frequently
during the summer, say from May to
September, the rainfall for a single month
ranges from 100 to 212 inches. Think of
it I .Nearly 18 feet of precipitation in ,30,
days. Colonel Sir Henry Yule's raster
for the year 1841 shows that there wefe
264 inches of rainfall during the month
of August. That was something phenom- '
enal even for Assam, however1, -and is
not taken into account in the deductions
made above. St. Louis Republic.

.There is an advertising man in De- I
troit, well known for his hustle, who has
a pretty pair of children that come hon
estly, by a desire to get all" the; fun bb
iainable as they pass through this pro
bationary state. It "is the habit of tjhe
father to regale the little ones with tyood
curdling Indian stories, fo? which, they .,
have 'the same insatiahle desire as the
nickle novel fiend for his choice style of
literature. ' The taoral of each' of ( these,
wonderful relations by the head of the
family is that the Indian, with all his
warwhooping and ghost dancing, cares
for good little children and scalps those
who are bad. This bothered Teddy, the
3-year-old, considerably, and he finally
determined on a council of war with his
little sister. From all the evidence that
their wise little heads could get together,
they concluded that they were bad chil
dren and decided to anticipate any Old
Indian that might come stalking around
after them by doing their own scalping.
Teddy promptly went at sister's golden
locks with the family shears, sacrificed
her bangs and waded ruthlessly through
her hair. Then she reciprocated,' and
nobody ever saw two such heads, scarred
over with nicks, ridges, "X's" and tufts
that suggested the joint efforts of a Fee
jee barber and a modern knife thrower.
The mother simply sat down on the floor
and wert scalding tears. The father
