An Aortal tVhalebaok to Itaa by Trolley at the Antwerp Htputltlcm. A flying street oar is the latest novelty which an ingenious Belgian has devised for tho convenience and auitteemetit of visitors to the Antwerp exposition. He docs not call it a flying street car, but "grand batjoatf dirigible" is the Belgian way of pmting it. In' appearance the flying street car re sembles the famous Pennington airship or n miniature whnlebaok upside down. The floating apparatus is a huge cigar shaped bag, to which is attached the fllreet car itself. In the front or prowof the car is an immense fan or profiler, and at the other etui au apparatus like a tiarti door in three sections, which pro vides a rudder. The car is divided into three sections, one for the motormau. another for the passengers and u third, which corre sponds about iu sue to the .baggage apartment on a suburban ear, is for Ike use of the oondnctor. The much abased trolley system lia been turned to good account in connec tion with this flying street car, aa from the overhead wire the electricity la ob tained with which to work the motor. Connecting the ear with thie overbend wiro is a traTeftng cable, one end of which connects with tbe motor, theothet ! being attached to a trolley which slide along tho wire as the car moves.

Astout chip's anchor attached by a wire cable to a windlase, which in turn is connected with the electric motor, provides thc?".taiw for hanling down the flying car when a station is reached where passengers are to alight. The first practical demonstration of tlta aerial means of rapid transit will be made during tho Antwerp exposition. Gnu model machine is already pretty well advanced toward completion, ttw termini of the route being the exoeitior groanda and tlie bourse at Antwerp which are about a mile apart. Timing the exposition trijM will be made every half hour by this novel means of locomotion, aud tlte succeae of the experiment may probably revolu tionize street car traffic. One great drawback to its popularity, howover, is that tho trip of a mile will cost 5 francs, or f 1, Philadelphia Press. Uuakf r City Wheel itmion.

"This little jsece of boudoir furniture is beautifully embossed. The exterior resembles a jwfectly laid out flower garden in miniature, while the interior is delicately chased.

This brings th cost of tlie gift up to$T,156. The interi or of the bathtnb is fitted up with recep tacles for soap, brushes, sponges, etc., and near the head of it is a dainty silver box attached to the side, in which is a stiver manknre set.
