It is only by means of comparison that
one can definitely realise the great improve
mints In the methods of travellng that
hare taken place within the last century.
The cm occur so gradually they make
but little pression upon us. For exam
ple now that the railroad time needed to
make the trip between New York and
Philadelphia has been reduced to less than
100 minutes, there are already those who
are predicting that in no more time than
five years trains will cover the -distance
between these two cities In a single hour,
and no one is in the least surprised at the
assertion. In 1800 those who traveled in
this country did so at no little personal
discomfture, and with an expenditure of
time that would greatly interfere with busi
ness as it Is now carried on. A man wish
ing to go from New York to Boston left
Monday forenoon and arrived at his destin
ation Friday Afternoon, stopping all night
at New Haven, New Loundon and Provi
dence. The fare for the trip varied from
$15 to $18, and there was an additional
outlay required of from $5 to $6 for board
and lodging; that is, the trip took up four
days of time and called for an outlay of
from $20 to $24. After the war of 1812
there was an improvement, and the time
between the two places was cut down to
about two days and the cost of the journey
to $14. In 1817 the fare between New
York and Philadplphla was $10, and be
tween New York and Albany by boat $7,
and the average time twenty-four hours.
A route was that year opened between
Philadelphia and Quebec; the distance 700
miles, far $47, and time required to make
the journey 108 hours. In 1826 the Boston
newspapers recorded the circumstance as
one worthy of special oomment, that New
York papers had been received in that city
24 hours after the date of their publication.
In 1828 the time required to make the
journey between these two cities had been
reduced to 21 hours, the route being from
New York city to Providence by steam
boat, and from thence to Boston by stage.
But in winter these trips were frequently
given up in consequence of stormy weather
and those who wished to avoid danger and
be certain in their movements still prefer
red the overland route. In 1832 there
were two regular stage routes between
New York and Boston, but competition
had greatly reduced the fare. The slow
line made the distance in about 52 hours,
and charged for passage $7,50, while the
fast, or mail line,took its passengers through
in about 45 hours, and charged them 8.50
a trip. A short time after this the railroads
came sufficiently into operation to make it
unnecessary to run through trips in stages,
and the latter were chiefly used to connect
the termini of the slow-building railroads.
Having made the progress that we have,
there is not the least likelihood that the
work of improvement will not go on. The
history of railroad accidents shows that,
when trains on some roads run at a slow
rate of speed may meet with mishops,there
Is relatively little danger in running at the
highest possible speed on a road that is
thoroughly constructed where the apooint
ments are as nearly perfect as possible and
the supervision constant. On this account
one does not have to be unduly sanguine to
think that long before the century is out we
shall be able to go from Jersey City to
Philadelphia in an hour's tine, and fron
the grand central depot to Boston In a less
number of hours than the number of days
spent by our ancestors, in the year 1808,in
making the same trip.
A Canary Ilird Story.
The story of the brbt introduction of
canary birds Into California is thus told:
In 1844 or '45 Charles and Henry Reiche,
two young Germans, hnving little else thun
the practical edjucatlan that seems to be
natural to young Germans, were bird ped
dlers in New Yoik. 'I hey went about
from street to street selling birds froii
stands. Their trade was pinclpally in
canaries, which they had sent over fromi
Germany where they were only ten or
twelve cents each. They did a pretty
fair business up to 1862, when they made
a daring stroke that niade them their for
tune and established the enormous business
that they now control. At that time Cal
ifornia was in the hush of gold finding.
Gold was plentiful there, but luxuries lew.
There was no transcontinental read, and
the Isthmus route was tedious and costly.
Young Rleiche, knowing that canaries were
unknown there, and believing they would
become the rage when once seen, deter
mined to carry over a. cargo. lie, there
fore, got 8,000 of the yellow fellows, to
gether, and, packing them In little cagen,
started fcr the Isthmus. Arriving at Car
tagena, he had his birds carried across to
Panama Bay, by nativer, and caught a
ship there, andi soon reached tian Francis
co. lie was late in reaching the ship, and
the captain was about to sail without hIm,
*but, seeing his boats filled with covered
boxes, thought It wra belated mall matter.
When Rleiche drew near, the captain hllod
him and asked him what lie had.
"Canary birds," replied Reiche.
"Canary birds be hanged I" shouted the
captain. "if I'd known it was birds, i'd
ha' left you long ago. "
Rei. he's first idea of the flush tidle lie
was to ride was caught from a homuesiek
Englishman, who, hearing the whistle of
a bullfinch that had Accidentally been put
in with the canaries, offered to pa5y the
expenses of the entire cargo for that finch.
As this amounted to $288, Rleiche saw titat
he had struck a rich lead, and lbe put
the price of the canaries at $25 each. They
did become the rage. Ilotels, saloons,
private residences, all must have a canary.
The little yellow birds made a craze like
the tulip mania. The price soon went tip to
$50, and the cargo was soon sold. Reiche
returned to Now York a rich man.
A Bridge in ashanner,.
The bridge over the Jhelumi Is 'not two
hundred yards from the Fort of Oorie,
though considerably lower, andi is not, more
than from thirty to forty yards long. The
two pieces are of equal elevation (that is
to say, from the water), and are constructed
of wood and unhewn stone. rho bridge
Itself Is entirely made of twigs, and tihe
btushes which are despoiled for this materi
al grow ciose to the banks of the rIver.
These twigs are twisted into ropes of an
Inch and a half and two inches In diameter,
and three or four of these twig ropes formi
each of the aides of the bridge. The
flooring of thme construction is of twigs
formed into ropes, and placed lengthwise
fronm pier to pier, across the gulf. The
width of this footway is about six Inches,
just enough for a passenger to walk across,
putting one foot before the other. Trho
side twig-ropes are about three feet high.
Short ropes join the sides to that part of
the bridge where the passenger walks
across; but these twigs are two and three
feet apart, and the trembling wayfarer has
plenty of opportunity to gaze at his leisure
on the roaring flood a few yards cnly be
neath his feet, dashing madliy oni nlow

kind, and the one below Khokshur, in

which is not expected as to go alons
doing what you started it to do. It is
possible to train a horse to be governed
by a word, almost as iompletely as It is
to train a child, and in such training
the horse reaches Its highest value.
When a horse Is soothed by the gentle
words of his driver-and we have seen
him calmed down from great excite.
ment by no other means-it may. be
very fairly concluded that he is a val
uable animal for all practical purposes
and it may be certainly concluded that
the man who has such power over him,
Is a humane man and a sensible -one.
But all this slmnply means thattho man
must secure the animal's confidence.
Only in exceptional instances is a horse
stubborn or vicious. 1i he understandb
his surroundings, and what is required
of him, he gives no trouble. As almost
every reader must know,if the ani
mal when frightened can be brought
up to the object he will become calm.
Tne reason is that lie understands that
there is nothing to fear. So he must
be taught to have confidence in the man
who handles him, and then this pow
erful animal, which usually no man
could handle, if it were disposed to be
vicious, will give no trouble. The
very best rule, therefore, which we
would lay down for the management
of the horse, Is gentleness and good
sense on the part of the driver. Bad
drivers make bid horses usually.
BuDDING.-Budding is a very simple
operation, whieh can be done at any
time when the bark "peels" readily
aid the buds are suffolenttly ripened
say from the middle of July to the last
of September. Take a well-developed
single bud, cut off the leaf, leaving
enough of the stal k to take hold of when
iuisertng the bud. With a sharp knife
out ofl the bud, with a thin slice ot bark
and wood, commencing, say a third of
anl inch above the bud and ending the
out about as far below it, so that the
whole forms a straight, smooth cut.
Ttien make a cross-cut through the
oark of the stalk in a smooth place,and
also a longitudinal one, so that the
whole has the shape of a Roman cross
about an inch long. 1ow raise the
bark on the stalk with a knife or with
an ivory, and push down the bud un
der the bark until the upper end iseven
with the cross cut of the stock. Now
wriap the whole firmly and smoothly
with basswood bark or woolen thread,
leaving the bud out. to prevent smoth
oring, out closing all the bark tightly
below and above. In about two weeks
tuo bandage may be taken off, and if
the bud is i resh and green,it has taken,
and oe stalk should be cut off an inch
above it next Spring and only the bud
allowed to grow.
