In the midst of all Hoc preparations lor an Anglo-Russian ?r, oa; we not imagine that guileless child of the desert smiling a smilo that n?hes from the Xile river to the moanUiflous banks of the lied Sea? And If his followers believe him when he says that Allah his interfered in his behalf, are llu; not likely to believe him ? |r is taken for granted by free trade Democrats that Mr. Randall is out of the Speakership contest, and that no Demoait o! his school need apply. This seems a little hanl on those protectionists who hire stool by the party and helped to put It into power, bu t they may console themjelrcs with the thought?if that be consoliDp-that the voice is the voice of the jiiijority. Tin Xew York M'cirfii is being roundly ileooo-iced for its criticisms on the administration?and its editor a Democratic Congressman, too I This is another wholenine reminder that the editor does better not to desire or aucejit political preferment. A man who malcef a newspaper six or seven days in ttie wceic gets out 01 life all the diversion that a reasonable person should ask. IJirs it goes again. The al ways bright Current, displaying almost the intense /eel* I tog of a disappointed West Virginia politician, remarks: "Mr. Ix>well is a great poet, and a credit to the English people." The Current will admit, perhaps, that from | the point of view of pure trade in verse 3fr. Lowell must hold up the Court train l 0/ Baron Tennyson. Tennyson, it is true, lit* not shone so brilliantly u an English I diplomat Ax interesting suggestion is that while Russia is moving on to Herat under cover o( her faithless diplomacy, she is not mis! leading England at all, for England is getting her navy in position to wipe Russia off the face'of the seas. This may be true; and yet Russia iu possession of Herat would be a loss to English interests and ?? Artanstnn nf KiiMtnn Hiin'ramamr In Central Asia, for which the detraction of the whole Kuasia navy would be a poor compensation. If we knew, as we are not permitted to know, juat what is going forward in India, we would probably see that England is not trusting entirely to her protfees on the seas?that as Russia is moving to the sooth England is poshing to the north, though not quite so fast. Ax American engineer engaged in the construction of railroad in Buenos Ayres on the timberless pampas, sends to The | Railroad Uautte a description of the method of laying track with iron ties. The rails rest on a system of inverted cups lined with metal. The engineer says: The cups are 2(1x18 in. and 3 in. high r, and are placed 1.41 metres (4 ft. 8 in.) apart, centre to centre. They aro therefore about 30 in. apart in the clear. Tracklaying under good organization can be done a third more rapidly than with wood ties?at least I think to. Tho fish-barn and bolts are the same as wooden ties. The rail is 60 lbs. and is 4 in. hitch and 3 in. base, but it has a bearing of 1? In. on each, tie and is damped at each end of the bearing on the outside and at the middle on the inside. The wrought iron tongue or log that holds the cut WPiIi'A Ir mrniMtfid nn tint In aide, and the wedge on the outalde. The Mm of metal in toe cup i? lay J in. *?erft thlcknea. The tie rods are put In oil keyed upon the ground. Id vie* of the rapid dlaappearance of the forests and the cheapening processes ol iron manufacture the Iron tie ia destined to play a large part in railroad build* lajlnthia country. Euswuui la reproduced from Mr. Manilla ioilractive book, "The Rusaiana at the Uates of Herat," a highly interest ingchapter allowing the eaae with which railroad connection can be aecured between Europe and India. When sane men talk about a railroad going from London to Calcutta in nin? days?from New York in sixteen days?we bogln to appreciate how faat the world doen move. 1 I it will be observed that in this severely I practical speculation the lofty mountain note, which has been supposed to bar out of Afghanistan an invading force from the north, entirely disappears. Russian engineers have made It plain that a coachWiMoar can be driven from the Caspian leato Herat, a large part of the way over a fewl country, and even in the Faropa??i?w Hills not encountering higher pound than our own Chaplirie HUl with hslf Its own height added to it. Instead of a bleak and barren country Afghanistan has a delightful climate.* Th* cweals and live stock of the fertile and well cultivated Herat district will subsist 100,000 men, according ttf Mr. Marvin. ine people ?te industrious and well dla-j Po?d. If we bear in rolnd that the northern boundary of Afghanistan is abontonallne with Washington, D. C., and the southern boundary with the southern extremity of Georgia, we shall better understand its relative position. When the Calcutta Through Line comes into operation Herat may become a favorite summer resort for Wheeling people. Theiiee to Calcutta will be a nice change la the winter season. x , A babblly-dreased woman oalled upon a gentleman for aid, claiming that she wa? la a starving condition.

UalUtnor* Jk Ohio?Fast Trains Kmjt aiul Went. ' Spteial Diipateh to the Inttlliomeer. Waihinstox, D. C., May 3.?The. fastest trains in the world has been the popular cry of the trunk lines, but just who run them la a point the publie is not quite (tear upon. The Baltimore <kOhio with its new schedule, which went into effect to-day, has cleared up matters to a considerable extent, and certainly the time tables would appear to give it the lead. The time of the Chicago limited has been cut down so that the run is now made in less than twenty-three hours, or faster than made by the limited trains of any other road. Leaving at 10 A. u the arrival in Chicago is at 8:50 the next morning. The Baltimore Jt Ohio's Cincinnati limited is by the new schedule upwards of four hours faster than any other limited to that city, the run being reduced down to the unprecedented time of sixteen houra. Departing at 3:30 a. the arrival in Cincinnati ij at half past seven the succeeding morning. The St. Louis limited which leaves at the same time is a twenty-seven hour run, reaching that city the next evening at half past six, uveran uour laa er uiuu uuuipuuug iinufceda. The Pittsburgh limited accomplishes the run to that city in nine hours And a half, also upwards of an hour ahead. Despite the fact of these trains being run directly in competition with the limited trains of lines making extra charges none are'made by the Baltimore Sc. Ohio, it being the company's announced determination to make the fastest time at the regular rates of fare. From the west, the i Baltimore A Ohio limited from Chicago Is shortened up in time so as to get in at lix-thiKy; the limited from Cincinnati arrives four hours quicker than any other imited, while the' Baltimore & Ohio limited from St. kouis as well as from Pittsburgh get in an hour ahead.

Prof. Bartholomew's car cost 18,000, and is the. largest one ever built. He planned it himself. When traveUpg it is much like any . coach, except ursixe. When stationary the sides open out, forming a sort of bay window for each horse's head. On one end is a fine portrait of the Profes* aor gnu sucn inotloea as ino ioiiowiuk are placed on each side in script: "Kindness mid Firmness Command Obedience;" "Be Merciful to the Helpleas;" "Gentleness Wins Love;" "Givn Good for Evil." The party with the horses consists of Prof. Bartliolomewsnd hie ton William, a young man; John D. Misbler, the famous theatrical manager;. F. A. Comstock, ofComstock's Opera House, Columbus, and air grooms. Messrs. Miehler and Corns toft are at the McLure. The Professor and his son also take their meala there, but sleep in the cor, having an elegantly fitted room at the end of the car. At the other in another apartment with berths for the grooms. The horses occupy the middle portion. On each aide of their quarters is a double door. The atalls are made of steel wire netting. A VISIT TO THE I'AB, A reporter inspected the car yesterday by invitation of Professor Bartholomew. It is a marvelonely arranged structure, furnished with speaking tubes, water pipes, and a portable car passing over the horses backs from end to end of the car. In the Professor's room is a waahstand and water tank which folda close Into the wall, a folding desk, with a marvelous music box attached, a telegraph inatrament and folding bunks.

This forecast holds true at the present t time?the cloee of the spring season.
