Cunlffin tho World's Wor From a llttlo wooden-track lino along tho Lackawaxcn Creek, whero tho first locomotive in tho country had its trial in 1827, tho railroad systems of tho United States have grown In soventy-(three- yoars to a notwork of rails which straightened out, would muko a singlo itrack extending eight times around .tho world. Visualize this eight-fold igirdlo. Bcsldo it a now track is pro crossing twolvo mllos a day on tho ninth circuit. On every flvo-milo strotch is a locomotlvo with a train of olght cars. Thoro are llvo men at work for ovory milo and 240 now men com ing to work every day. The road carrlos moro tonnage than all tho ships on all tho seas together with railroads of the busiest half of ICurope. From tho lines that muko up tiio imag inary manifold belt one wage-earner out of ovory llftcon in tho country, directly or indirectly, secures a living for himself and his dependents, if not as a ilreman or a conductor or a superintendent, then a locomotive bulldor or a stcol worker, or oven one of tho lumbermen engaged In hewing down tho :t,000 miles of timber em ployed overy yoar for ties. HiilTalo (Jrass Seed. Kdltor Ri:uiSTi:it: 1 notlco the papers of tho State aro having quite a discussion regarding tho soiling of Buffalo grass seed. In tho south wos.tern country Buffalo grass is also known as curly mosqult and summer mosquft. Perhaps tho host authority in regard to tho matter is found in "Plauts und Flowors of Kansas," by Bernard B. Smyth, Librarian Kansas Academy of Science and Curator of Kansas Stato Herbarium. In that work ( pago 71 ) wo find tho following language: "This grass has its male and femalo llowers on sopa rnto plants. On tho plains tho plant usually propagates by runners; beneo wo find patches all stan.lnato and all pistllato as tho caso may bo. Tho stamlnato blossoms with their orango anthers arojqulto noticoablo, usthoy stand four or flvo inches high; but tho pistllato blossoms aro hidden under tho grass about ono or two inches high, and must bo sought attentively to bo found, and may thoro bo found in abundance" Tho seed of this grass aro gathered and cached by pralrlo squirrels and wood rats. Ono wood rat's nest, found in the winter of 1887, contained nonrly ono-half bushel of need. Further com ment is, I think, unnecessary. It. K.

Tho train has proved a success and Is doing a nice business, although it is cutting down tho patronngo of tho old trains. Miss Sadie Travis, Hunilier. Miss Sarah Travis was in tho other day with a talo of woe. Sho says that last Saturday sho camo very nearly burning her houso down about her head and all becauso sho played her own plumber. On her placo Is a gas well, but for somo tlmo tho feed pipo which carries gas to her houso bus been stopping and clogging up. Saturday sho shut olT tho gas as sho supposed and dis connected somo of tho pipes and lot tho water and oil blow out. Afterwards sho reconnected them and wisely tested tho joints with) a match. Tho lirst tost produced an explosion which rattled tho windows and lluttcrcd tho shlnglc3. Firo caught in several places in tho room and sho estimates her loss at about S")0, escaping injury herself only by reason of having her head bundled up. Sho demanded gas from Mr. L. C. Boatty this morning, but ho assured her that hor eontractcalled for a sharo of tho gas when tho well suppllod gas and a sharo of tho wator when it pro duced water. What the Trolley 11ns Done. In tho yoar of tho birth of tho Elec trical Hoview 1882 tho ilrst experi ments in electric traction wcro made by Mr. IOdison at Menlo Park. Flvo years lator Mr. Spraguo built tho Richmond road of historic memory. In tho fifteen yoars following that dato tho trolley track has covorr.d tho United States with an expanding net work and has wrought a silent butjfar rcaching rovolution In tho conditions of living. By distributing tho crowded populations of cities it has becomo ono of tho most important factors for bettering tho general social condition. It has removed thousands of horses from city streets, thereby Immediately bettering tho health of municipalities. Tho monuj spent in building electric railroads in tho United States has al- roady aggregated a sura equal to tho cost of the Civil war. Tho power em ployed in driving electric street cars roaches tho mormous total of half a million iiuijj-powor. If this powor were concentrated in an electric arc it would doubtless bo vlslblo with easo to tho inhabitants of Mars. Tho num ber of passongors transported by tho trolley in this country in a month is greater than tho population of China and in a yoar exceeds by sovorn times tho population of tho earth. Editorial In tho Electrical Bovlow. Test Vote on Resubmission. Tho Topcka Capital has started a voting contest tho purpose of which Is said to bo to feol tho public pulse on tho subject of resubmitting tho pro hibitory law. First of all tho voting will bo a money making schemo for tho paper, for only subscribers aro supposed to vote. And Immediately ho voting was started tlio leaders on both sides of tho question declurcd that tho othor sido would work night and day to get out its vote. Tho tompernnco peoplo think tho whisky advocates will subscrlbo for papers and turn in a big vote favoring resub mission, in the hopo of Inducing an issuo bolng mud i) of tho question nt somo election. And tho liquor men say tho temperanco peoplo will rush in a big vote to prevent any chanco of this. As a matter of fact tho voto may simply register tho beliefs of Capital scadcrs. If tho contest does becomo ono of public interest and a full voto is secured, it may indlcato public sentlmont if no false voting is done and it is sure to holp tho .Capital cof fers. Tho outcome will bo awaited with interest. J- Cement Works Perhaps.
