DIAMOND SPRAY.
-- home's tli place for boys," said a
sttern parent to his son, who was fond of
going out at Inght.
"'That's just what I think when you
drive me oil to school e\`ery morning," said
he son.
--"''t was p itc(:hd without," said the
clergyman, and an old lbase-all pla.yer, who
hald been calmly sluulblberinlg, woke waith a

-A lady met a little country boy one

your imother ?"
" Sle is well."
" And your father ?"
" lie's well too."
" Now Johnny, bow's your parents ?"
"Ain't got no parents, and lily n:une
ain't Jolhnny.
-A junryiman was summoned at a ('ounty
Court. After replying satisftwtorily to the
several questions plrolpounded by tile solic
itor, he was accepted, and, in the usual way
conulnandedl to look upon the prisoner. Atf
ter scannhIng the wiman closely, thle aulpr(ljul

solemn voice(, said, " Yes I think he's

-A Rhode Island man ,rec~entJCr told his
son to cut a hole in the baird so that the cat

just where the nbarn door when open, would

through the door of course,' repllied the
son. The parent sudltknly rememlbered that

" Well you can't have it-you called ime a

THE TRIUMPH OF ART IN RAILROAD
TRAVEL.
Year by year we note the footsteps of pro
gress in many directions. In no direction is
progress more palpable than in the facilities
otffered the railroad traveler of the present
day. Looking back but a few years, we can
see the toiling, snail-like advance made (lay
by day by the emigrant's wagon, as it was
slowly but surely drawn toward sundown
by the patient ox or the slowly moving farm
horse; then came the old fashioned stage
coach ; following closely, we had the canal
packet; then the steamer on the lakes and
rivers; then the locomotive engine and the
stage-like car. Now! the palatial coach ahd
mlore than palatial drawing room and sleep
ing car. Yet, not satisfled with these, that
marvel of' mammoth western corporatious,
thbe Chicago & Northlwestern Railway, as we
stated some weeks ago, has developed hotel
cars that will, for elegance, usefiulness and
real comfort, celipse everything of the kind
that has been hitherto placed In servee on
any road. Somec of our reallers seem to have
some doubts about the merits of hotel cars.
or their superiority over the so-called dining
oar that are run for a few miles on some
roads. "I am not so sure about that," saidtl
one of our friends, as he lhad finished read
ing our tirst article about thlese hotel coaches
that are to he run on thile Omaha and Call
fornia line of the Chicago & Northwestcern
Railway. "I am not so sure I would care to
take my dinner' in any car, no ma:tter how
lunch like a p):lace. while it w'as running at
tle 'rate of forty miles an hour." It is a say
ing, "that the faster you run the safer."
Whiy, last June it willh be remembered that
this road Uhah:hd from Chicago to Council
11ifl-. in les. than ten hours, the now cele
brated ."Jarrett :and "atLnier Train." ( )n
that train was a hotel car, not so large, with I
le's wheels under it. poorer springs, and in
no way as strong and easy for riding in as
these new cars are to be, and yet Mr. Jarrett
said, --while on the Chicago & Northwestern
line. running at an average rate of fifty niles
an hour. we took our breakfast as comfort
:ably as we would at I)elmoniico's, in New
York."
It is well known that the (lhie:go & Nonth
western Railway is built over the most fav
orable line. as to grade. that could be found
between ('hicago and the lissouri river,
with but few curves: its track is mostly of
heavy steel rail, gravel ballasted, with wide
roadway, giving it permanency and solidity
-it is as smoothl as a floor ; all its cars are
strong' wvith lrienty of wheols tunder them.
and with springs so :idjut4ed that the usual
'h-ounc'ing"' and oscillation is reduced to the
mninimum. We observed last week that in
an ordinary ear the side motion and rising
and falling of the car was less than half an
inich, and somietiiimes scarcely perceptible.
We belie've it will be found that a person
will sit or write in one of these hotel cars,
and eat or write as confortably as he could
at his desk or table at home ; this we choose
to call the triumph .f art in railway tracel.
We learn that this new line of hotel ears
is being pushed to completion as fast as the
full force cf workmen in the Pullman shops
can do it. We shall be certain to see Ilhems
in a few weeks.-Cedar Rapids Republican,
