Details of a Proposed Long-
Distance Electric Road.
To Extend from Chicago to St. Louis
in an Air Line.
Interesting Description of a Road
Which Will Apparently Be Per
fect—One of th* Same
Sort in Europe.
The Wilmington, Del., Advocate con
tains the following interesting account
of a proposed electric road over which
it is expected that a speed of 100 miles
an hour can be attained:
There has been more or less specula
tion about the construction of the Chi
cago and St. Louis electiic railroad, but
it is an assured fact. The rights oi way
have been secured entirely through
Christian county, and the same are now
deposited with a bank in escrow pend
ing the construction of tho road. Work
on the road is now being prosecuted
near Edinburg, 111., where one of the
power houses is located.
The line from Chicago to St. Louis is
250 miles. It is an air line. There will
be no crossings, no frogs, no switches-
in fact none of those inconvenieue<;e
that cause accidents so often on the
railroads. Its trains will run 100 miles
an hour, accomplishing the trip between
the two cities in two hours and a half.
The road is divided into 25 sections of 10
miles each. The cars run one section
apart, and no current will flow in the
intermediate section; so that it Wili bo
absolutely impossible for cars to come
within 10 miles of each other. This wili
prevent any two cars running upon a
single section, making colliaiona abso
lutely impossible.
There will ultimately be four tracks,
but at first only two through tracks will
be laid. The through cars will not stop
anywhere between the two cities. It
will be unnecessary to travel at night,
and therefore no through passenger cars
will be run after 9 o'clock p. m., the
tracks being reserved at night for hieh
class freight, express and mail matter.
The car is long, low and compact, hav
ing two pairs of driving wheels, each
being propelled by a separate motor.
The driving wheels are six feet in diam
eter and are capable of making 500 rev
olutions per minute.
The road is now in course of construc
tion. The company has purchased the
finest equipped coal mine and brick and
tie-making plant in the state of Illinois.
Coal fields through which the road
passes are capable of yielding 1,227,500,
--000,000 tons of coal. It is practically
level for 200 miles.
The stock of the Chicago and St. Liuis
railroad, amounting to $7,000,000, is
already on the market. This enterprise
has aroused profound interest not only
in Chicago aud Now York, but a!l over
the world.
The St. Louis Globe-Democrat pays
that foreign technical journals are dis
cussing a proposed electric railway be
tween Vienna and Buda-Pesth, which
in many respects resembles Dr. Adams'
project to connect Chicago and St. Load.
It is proposed lo build a double track,
without switches, and as the air cur
rents due to the high epeed of
the cars are expected -to be power
ful, the tracks are to be no less
than 32.8 feet apart. In building the
line the sharpest curve is expected to
have a radius not less than 9840 feet
long. The rails are to be 7.2 inches
high, and weigh not less than BlJfj
pounds per yard. They are to be bo; led
to steel crossties, spared one meter
(3.28 feet) from center to center, and the
ties themselves are to be laid in a beton
foundation and firmly seemed to it.
The two conducting rails for each track
are to be carried in cast-iron chairs on
porcelain insulators, the latter being se
cured to tbe steel crossties. The current
is to be taken from them by two grooved
contact wheels on each car, affording a
large surface of contact. These wheels
are to be made of comparatively large
diameter, bo as to reduce their rotative
speed, and are to be mounted centrally
in each of the radial trucks.
Springs are io be used to keep
them in contact with the con
ducting rails. The road is to be ope
rated with a large number of short, light
trains or single care, rather than a
smaller number of longer trains, as it is
believed that in this way the distribu
tion of power will be more uniform over
the entire length of the line. The cars
are to be about 148 feet long, 7 feet wide
and 7.2 feet high, with parabolic ends to
rednce air resistance at the high speed,
over 100 miles an hour, wbicb it ie be
lieved will be possible. Each car rests
on two radial trucks, and each of the
four axles is to be provided with an
electric motor. Naturally brake power
has received a great deal of attention in
the designs for the plant and each car
will be provided with Westinghouae
apparatus. It will also be possible to
brake the cars electrically by reversing
the current supplied to the motor.-.

He Wanted to Capture Kid, the
Captain Dick, an old Indian fighter
una ±cout of 19 years' experience in the
western country, arrived in the city this
morning from Los Angeles, says a Tuc
son paper, with the avowed object of
devoting his time for the next few
months to the hunting of the Apache
Kid. His idea is to go from here to
Willcox, and thence by stage to San
Carlos agency, where he haß been as
sured by Gen. MeD. McCook of Loa
Angeles that he would probably have
no difficulty in raising a nuall band of
experienced men and equipments.
Captain Dick has had some trouble
I with his wife lately, and is separated
! from her at present. He states that sho
has been persistently dogging and per
secuting him, and making falee state
ments in regard to his courage and that
it is partly to sustain his reputation
tbst he has decided to embark in the
undertaking of exterminating the Kid.
He was an Indian scout in the Custer
campaign of 1876, and states that a half
hr.ur before the fatal battle of the Little
Hig Horn, on June 25th, he left General
Custer with messages for General Reno.
Later, in 1835, he served as chief scout
in the Riel rebellion in the northwest,
and bears a silver medal presented by
! Col. Arthur T. TT. Williams of the Mid
! land volunteer forces.
The captain believes that about eight
jor 10 good men having located the Kid,
I could surronnd the monntp.in or fastness
in which he bad taken refnge and un
known to him, wait and starve him out.
IHe believes that only by adopting the
j Indian methods of warfare, lighting no
i camp fires at night and living altogether
on cold food, this wily savage can be
overcome, aud that his own experience
of 18 hours in the raddle without food
will stand him in good stead in tbe pro
posed enterprise.
The captain is a solid, strongly built
i man of perhaps 35 or 37 years, with
i drooping, black moustache and napol
; eon. He wears the usual long, btp.ck
! hair of a professional frontiersman,
i partly, he says, because he chooses to
! and partly to conceal a wound made by
|an Indian war club. ■
It Was to Fight VnndevbUt That He 1s-
sued tho Bogus Certificates.
G. P. Morosini, who for over eighteen
years war. closly associated In business
with Jay Gould, was perhaps as much
grieved 1 as any one over the financier's
death. lie and Mr. Gould had adjoining
desks at 71 Broadway. Mr. Gould made
Mr. Morosini his confidant in many of
his private as well as business affairs,
and no tuan was perhaps more familiar
than tin- latter with Mr. Gould's personal
eh-.-r: --tensities. Seated in his office, Mr.
' :..: pointed out the plain stained
v . >.:> aud leather bottomed chair
v. . ; ould was accustomed to oc
t-. '.' ere sat a man," said Mr. Moro
siu.', "who was more misunderstood and
moro causelessly maligned than any I have
ever known; I was the uuditor of the Erie
Company at the time Mr. Gould assumed
control, und I continued in that capacity
until after General John A, Dix became
president of it, iv 1872. Mr. Gould was
brought into Erie iv IS3B by Colonel Jim
"Mr. Gould became presidentof the com
pany. Immediately the road bounded into
popularity. Its stock increased in value
and there were many who begged for
blocks, but could not get them. Among
tijGPo who na-,v a great future for the road
Was Commodore Vnndcrbilt. He saw in
iv v powerful rival to the New York Cen
tral aud Hudson River railroad, and deter
mined if he could to Robbie ib up. He tried
at first to purchase a majority of its stock.
He failed. Then be declared a freight war.
At that time Cattle were brought from Buf
falo to this city at $125 a carload. Tire
commodore reduced the rate to SlOtt, Fisk
and Gould made a cut of twenty-five dol
lars less. The commodore went to fifty
dollars. Eric then offered to bring cattle
here at tweuty-flve dollars per carload, and
when the Erie put the rate still lower Van
derbilt issued an order to bring cattle over
the Central at one dollar a carload. The
commodore thought this would ruin the
Erie's freight traffic. He waited to see
what card Fisk and Gould would next
play. Just as he was congratulating him
self that not a steer was being carried over
the Erie, while the Central was compelled
to refuse business, he discovered that as
in previous contests he had been outwitted.
"When the commodore reduced the rate
to one dollar per carload Fisk and Gould
purchased every cow and steer tb be had
West of Buffalo. They shipped them, not
by the Erie, but by the Central, at the
commodore's own rate. They had sold
enough iv this city to make fortuue be
fore Vander'oilt found out 'where be was
at.' lam told that I lie air was very blue
la Vanderbiltdom when tho commodore
learned how he had been tricked. He swore
revenge, but fir=t put tbe rate back on the
transportation of cattle."
Mr. Morosini laughed heartily while re
lating this incident. Continuing, he said:
"Commodore Vandcrbilt still ached to get
control of Erie, and be went to buying up
all the stock not held by Fisk and Gould.
Having partially succeeded he offered to
relieve them of their holdings. Fisk said,
'All right; we will give you 810,(100,000
"The colonel issued a lot of stock, which
of course was not worth the paper on
which it was printed. Vanderbilt bit and
thought that he now possessed supreme
power over Erie. When he discovered that
Fisk and Gould still held the majority of
legitimate stock in Erie, while his pur
chase at a big price was worthless, the
commodore was the maddest man in Amer
ica. Then there were interminable suits,
interrupted by the killing of Fisk by
"i am not defending Flak's trickery, but
Vanderbllt had to be fought with bis own
weapons or he would have had a monopoly
of all the railroads in the state."—New

An Unfavorable Opinion About
Them from an Official.
The Australian Entomologist Says
They Are Not Much Account.
The Motto Among Australian* iv Aus
tralia la to hpraj- Without Cean-
Ing-A Very Intereaa
lng Lett nr.
The Rural Californian, in its last ißSue,
contains the following article on Mr.
Koebele'a scale-bug parasites:
The editor of the Rural Caliiornian
has felt all along that the position taken
by this paper touching the efficacy of
Mr. Koebele's importation of Australian
parasites for the red and black scale is
not only tenable but in accordance with
all tbe facts in the premises. However,
to make assurance doubly sure, a large
number of letters of inquiry were sent
to tbe government entomologists of the
Australian colonies, and also to a large
number of the leading fruit growers.
Several replies have been received, all
tending to substantiate what has been
said in these columns, viz.: that these
predaceouß and parasitical insects are
not only unavailable and worthless, but
that Mr. Koebele's assertions that oreus
chalybeus, 0. Australasia; and leie con
formis are holding the red and black
scale and woolly aphis in check in
Australia are without foundation in fact.
It is rather a delicate matter to inquire
into the motives of Mr. Koebele and the
state board of horticulture in withhold
ing the truth from the fruitgrowers;
but it is obvious that there must have
been a reason for so doing. What that
was we leave our readerß to judge.
Suffice it to say that what coßt the state
$4063 65 to ascertain, through Mr.
Koebele and the stale board, might
have been learned by correspondence
and observance, viz.: that these injur
ious insects are not native to that coun
try and that "nature's remedy" does
not hold them in check, but that
artificial means are resorted to. The
following letter from Mr. Charles
French, government entomologist of tho
colony of Victoria, to the editor of the
Rural Californian, is, to put it mildly,
somewhat at variance with the sensa
tional and unreliable reports emanating
from the state board of horticulture:
Office of "I
Government Entomologist, 1
Exhibition Buildings, j
Mklborne, 17th October, 1892. J
My Dear Sir : Your esteemed letter
of tbe Btb September duly to band. In
answering your queries I feel that I am
treadihg on somewhat dangerous ground,
a» the journals of your country are
always teeming with news regarding
Australian parasites. . . . But as
you have asked me some straightforward
questions in a straightforward way, I
must do my best to answer them in a
similar manner.
1— Neither tho red scale or black scale
(L. Olese) are indigenous to Australia.
I have years ago found both species ot
orcus, together with a cryptolaemus (C.
Montrouzeri), feeding upon these and
other scale insects, but to to appreciable
extent. In tact, I facy these two scales
are on the increase. In Victoria we
keep to the spraying, as from Eome
cause or another (partly owing to vast
"clouds" of sparrows, who seem espec
ially fond of our little coccinelidte, but
of few other insect*) these ladybirds
would appear to make no impression
whatever upon scale of any kind, at
least in Victoria where I have resided as
a fairly keen observer and practical hor
ticulturist for nearly 40 yearß. I notice
thai climatic conditions, as a rule, can
not be taken into consideration—as the
attack is as severe at the foot of our
Alps as it is in the drier northeast and
northwest parts of the colony, where
160 deg. Fah. in the euu is no uncom
mon occurrence.
2— Leiß contormis is a native of Vic
toria, at least I have known it as such.
It certainly destroys a good many woolly
aphis, peach aphis, etc., but to no ap
preciable extent, at least such is my
opinion, also that of other practical
growers. We care but little, now, for
the woolly blight, as everyone relies en
tirely upon the double grafting and re
eißtant stocks as wall as on painting the
trees with the following: (See page 40
of my book, part I).
The reason why icerva pnrchasi has
not, in my opinton, made headway in
Victoria is that tbe leetophonus fly has
kept it under, it (the icerya) having
been more plentiful 30 odd years ago
than now. The little novins cardinalis
and two other species are old friends,
but we never even dreamt of their prov
ing tuch a blessing as we bear as being
the case in America and at the cape,
until friend Koebele came along. Many
of our native scales have parasites,
mostly bymenopterous and of small
size, but still if left alone tho scale rap
idly increases. Our motto is : Spray
without ceasing.
3— Growers in Victoria are always
spraying, and just now an "insect pest
bill" is before the legislative assembly,
which is intended to compel all to take
steps to e'ean their trees by spraying or
other means.
A couple of species of rhizobius, I
may say, are aleo destroyers of scale,
but, as I have stated in my book, lam
not yet a convert to the "ladybird
methods" of destroying our Bcaie in
sects, although I believe that what has
been accomplished in America may, in
a manner, be accomplished here also.
N. cardinalis would appear to be a
refractory little brute, as I have tried it
on all sorts of scale, hut it would tounh
nothing but icerya, which latter is, in
my opinion, alraoßt peculiar to our
native wattles of commerce, viz: Acacia
decurrens and mollislma, although now
it may be found on almost everything,
but, stracge to say, oraaiio and lemons
are almost the list, plants which it
I am always pleased to hear from
American friends, aud whom, iv my
new position, I am humbly trying to
follow. . . .
I em, my dear sir, yours sincerely,
Charles Fekncii,"
Government Entomologist.

we have been able to learn from other

Children Cry Castoria,
Thing* Which Itclong «v the Bod; Cover-
lugs for tho Night.
The hours of repose aro among the es
sentials of the many matters of routine
which contribute in varying measures
toward existence. With these hours go
the clothing for the night.
Many ideas are prevalent in regaf d to
what 6houM be worn at the time when
one ordinarily prepares for that repose
which is to give energy for the following
day. One person has an opinion that a
certain form of night robe and a bed
covering of particular construction or
character aro the proper things for
health and for comfort. Ordinarily
these convictions of thought are not
worth a serious consideration. A little
common sense goes a great way and car
ries with it nearly every thing that sug
gests a proper habiliment for the hours
of sleeping.
In the first place there is the body gar
ment proper, and this is from a purely
sanitary standpoint best exemplified in
the pajamas. Pajamas cover both body
and limbs and furnish all necessary
warmth and comfort. They are loose
fitting und thoroughly comfortable, and
so very easily adjusted that any one can
put them on the body with that facility
with which an ordinary night shirt is
placed. Women who may be averse to
adopting clothes which may outwardly
appear manlike may find in health a
goal well worth contesting, and in cov
ering themselves with that style of gar
ment which is thoroughly sensible.
The composition of the nightgown is a
matter of taste. Canton flannel, linen
and woolen goods stand at the head of
the list; after these come the silks. One,
however, which deserves special atten
tion and which is equally suited for both
sc-es is the real china silk. This last is
the best, but cannot be procured at
prices within ordinary range of parse.
If it can be bought it will give not only
a necessary protection, but a comfort
able and ah enduring garment.
The matter of bed clothing is another
thing deserving of thought, comprising
that same relation to tho body which
the outer clothing should hold. A few
simplo rules should cover the entire
ground, and they are comprised in four
homely precepts: Use a hair or husk
mattress, cover this mattress with a
blanket, cover the blanket with a sheet,
put a sheet, blankets and counterpane,
or extras if you like, above this, and al
ways bear in mind that a lowering of
the body's temperature at night is not to
be sanctioned.—New York World.
i.limlinc; a Shark.
A successful diver must possess great
conrago and nerves of steel. Such a
man, connected with a large wrecking
company, was visiting the pearl fisher
ies in the gulf of California. On one of
his trips in quest of the pearl oyster he
had a narrow escape from a fearful
He had been instructed never to stir
from the bottom until he had looked up
and around. Fortunately he heeded the
advice. Huviug filled his bag he glanced
quickly about, and caught sight of R
huge shovel nosed shark watching him.
In an emergency men think fast. Near
the diver was a large rock. He moved
quickly to tho other side of it, hoping to
dodge the ferocious monster. But the
maneuver did not work; the shark
watched every movement, changing his
position by a slight motion of his power
ful tail.
Time was precious, and the diver con
ceived the idea of blinding the shark by
stirring up the mud. Under cover of
that he might escape. He worked for
dear life, and had the water thick with
mud in less than half a minute.
Slipping around the rook again he rose
to the surface, having barely strength
enough to reach the side of the boat, and
was hauled on board just as the vora
cious man eater made a rush for him.—

Two Extremes.
There are many things which women
do not approve in men, as there are
doubtless many faults in the moral and
mental composition of women which
are distasteful to men.
The violence and abusiveuess, the hick
of dignity, and even those personal dif
ferences which aro emphasized with
blows it would be painful to see intro
duced into an assemblage of women.
Nevertheless there is no reason why tbe
other extreme of excessive amiability
should be aimed at, with the caressing
and petting that have their proper and
only place within the four walls and the
strict seclusion of home. It is a fur cry
from the masculine turbulence of a po
litical primary to the excessive sweetness
of the too "womanly" convention, but
there lies betweej* the two a golden
mean, where courtesy and refinement
and unceasing regard for the feelings of
others are perfectly compatible with
official dignity and refreshing good sense.

was known that tho khan and his suit
