MAY 7. 18S5. -1 . RAILWAY ETIQUETTS. i . Timely ami Important Rules gf Conduct for the Heueflt of Those Who Don't Know How to Dehuve ThtMtiKelveit in a Sleeper or Dining Car. BY BILL ME. Many people have traveled all their lives and yet do uot kRow how to behave themselves when on the road. For the benefit and guidance of such, these few, crisp, plain, liorue sease rules of etiquette have been framed. In traveling by rail, on foot, turn to the right on discovering an approaching train If you wish the traiu to turn out, give two loud toots and get in between the rails bo that you will not muss up the right of way. Many a nice, new right of way has been ruined by getting a pedestrian tourist spattered all over its first mortgage. On miring at night oit board the rain, do not leave your teeth in the ice water tank. If every oue should do ho, would oeasion great confusion in case of wreck. It would also cause much annoyance and delay during the rtsui- rection. Experienced tourists- tie a string to the.r teeth and retain them during the night. If you havo been reared in extreme poverty and your mother supported you until you grew up and married so that. your wire uid support you, you will probablv Pit in lour seats at l ite same time, with your feot extended into the aisles so that 3'ou can wipe them off on other people while you snore with your mouth open, clear to your shoulder blades. If you are prone to drop to sleep and breathe with a low. dath rattle, like the exhaust of a bath tu! it would be a good plan to tie up your head in a feath er bed i ml then insert the whole thing in the linen closet, or if you cannot se cure that, you might stick it out of the window and get it knocked off against a tunnel. The stockholders of the road might get mad about it, but you could do it in such a way that they wouldn't know whose head it wuv. Ladis and gentlemen should "uard against traveling by rail while ia a beastly state of Intoxication. In the dining car, wttile eating, do not eomt your moustache with your fork By all means do not comb your mous tache with the fork of another. It is better to refrain altogether from comb ing the moustache witli a fork while traveling, for the motion of the train might jab the fork into your eye and ir ritate it. If vour dessert is very hot and you do not discover it until you have burned the rafters out of the roof of yt.ur mouth, do sot utter a wild yell of agony aqd spill your coffee all over a totnl stranger, bnt control yourself, hoping to know more next time. In the morning is a good time to find out how many people have sutceeded in getting on the passenger train who ought to )e in the stock cur. Generally you will And one male and one female. I tie main goes into tue wash room, bathes his worthless carcass from daylight until breakfast time, walk ing on the feet of any man who tries to wash his face during that time. He wipes himself on nine different towels .because when he eets home he knows ho will have to wine his face on an old door mat. People who have been reared on hay all their lives, generally want to fill themselves full of pie uud colic when thev travel. Th female of this same mammal goes into the ladies' department and remains there till starvation drives her out Then the real ladies have about thirteen seconds apiece in which to dress. If you never rode in a varnished car before, and never expect to again, you will probably roam up and down the car, meandering over thw feet of the porter while he is making up the berths. This is a good way to lei people see just how little sense you had left after your brain began to soften. In traveling, do not taku along a lot of old clothes that you know you will sever wear. Never walk through a car staring ev erybody out of countenance, like a Jim Crow detective hunting for the James boys, but mind your own business, be quiet, polite and patient, and see that your tieket takes ynu over the great Rock Island route. Then yon will feel as though you were among friends all the time, and you will leave the train with a pang of genuine regret. N "Old Hickory." General Jackson was known ameng the soldiers who had served under him as "Old Hickory," a sobriouet given him during the Creek war. His brigade was making a ferced mareh without baggage or tents, to surprise the Indians in one of their villages, and were for several days and nights exposed to the peltings of a March storm, the rain freezing as it fell. General Jackson got a severe cold but did not complain, as he tried to sleep in a muddy bottom among his half frozen soldiers. Captain Allen and his brother John cut down a stout hickory tree, peeled off the bark and made cov ering for the General, who was with dif ficulty persuaded to crawl into it. The next morning a drunken citizen entered the camp, and seeing the tent kicked it over. As Jackson crawled from the ruins tho toper cried: "Hello, Old Hick ory, eom a out of your bark and jlne ns in a drink!" Thenceforth the General was known in camp as "Old Hiekory," and when he was talked of as a Preni dential candidate the nickname was adopted by his supporters. The "liberty tree' ff the revolution was revived In the "hickory tree," planted at every country crons roads and village by the enthusiastic Democrats, while they sang: Freeman, cheer the hlf kory tree, Long its boughs have sheltered thee. 1 Boston Budget. Four Great General. The four4 crreatest Generals produced by the great civil war on the National siae were Grant. McPhorsou. Sherman and Sheridan. One of the most pleasant memories of American history is. and will forever be, tne fact that between these four great commanders there was never the shadow of jealousy or envy. It is the highest honor that Grant ever reeeivwl from men's judgment or admi ration that these three able captains all willingly and always looked up to him as their superior. McTherson fell in battle before the splendor of his abilities could attract the world's attention, but in his death Grant, as he declared, lost one of the greatest perhaps the very greatest of his lieutenants. Sheridan, as in right of his Irish blood, had the fiercest spirit in battle: Sherman the greatest invention in council, while Mc pherson could fight with the one and plan with the other, but they all admit ted, because tuey knew avd felt, that "the silent, gray-eyed man" was greater than they. Why." I asked General Sherman odcp. "did you and Sheridan always acknowl edge Grant to b your leader? "Be cause," he responded, in his quick, idio matic manner, "while l could map out a dozen plans for a campaign, everyone of which bherldan would swear he could fight out to victory, neither he norleould tell which of the plana was the best one; out Grant, who simply sat and listened and smoked while we had beeu talking over the maps, would at the end of r talking tell us which was the best pi-n, and in a dozen or two words the reas u of hiIdecision, and then it would all tie to clear to us that he was right th t Sheridan and I would look at each thr and wonder why we hadn't seen the ad vantage ef it ourselves." "I tell you," he continued, after a mo ment's pause, "Grant, ia not appreciated yet. 1 he critics of Europe aro too ig norant of American geography to appre ciate the conditions of his campaignr. What is it to march an army from Ber lin to Paris? Look at the shortness of the distance. Look at the multitude of roads. Look at the. facilities of trans portation. Consider how many titties the same ground Las been fought over by successive commanders. Is not every point of vantage known? What com mander can blunder where all the con ditions lie open to his eye? But I have seen Grant plan campaigns for half a million of troops along a front line 2,500 mlleg in length, and send them march ing to their objective points through sections where the purveyor's chain was never drawn, and where the commiscari at necessities alone would have broken down any transportation system of Eu rope; and three months later I have seen those armies standing where he said they should be what he planned and ac complished. And I give it as my mili tary opinion that General Grant Is the greatest commander of modern times, and with him only three others can stand Napoleon, Moltke and Welling ton." Montreal Gazette. Our VanlHhlng Walnut. A late dispatch from Loakport says: Great quantities of black walnut timber have been passing east from points in Ohio, Indiana and Iowa for some weeks past. The unusual shipments have at tracted attention from lumber dealers, and it is learned that a company of Eng lish capitalists, with whom a combina tion of lumbermen in Indiana are co-operating, have been for a year or more quietly getting possession of all the black walnut it has been possible te buy, and aro now sending it to Europe. The syn dicate has buyers out wherever titero is a tree to be had. Whon their systematic stripping of the lumber began the farm ers did not fully understand its object, and in a majority of cases disposed of magnificent tracts of trees far below their yalue. W hen they did learn they more than doubled on iho prices they had been asking for their trees. About all the remaining walnut forests in In diana are in Bartholomew and Jennings counties, while Ohio has been almost en tirely stripped of them. "If the original forests of these two states were standing to-day," said a buyer, "their valuation WGuld be many times greater than are the farms which they were sacrificed to improve. In making their farms the settlers in these states destroyed millions and millions of dollars' worth of black walnut. Miles and miles of fence are laid with black walnut rails. "Ono old farmer says that only thirty years ago no oegan maaing tits rarrn, and that ho had worked eight years in clearing it of the walnut timber, eighty acres of which he burned up. After thir ty years of cultivation the farm is worth $8,000. If it had its walnut trees back It would be worth more, than $100,000. This'farmer ia only one among thont and.i who for years girdled, cut and burn ed the grf at forests they found occupy ing the laud. 1 he company I represent have purchased at nominal prices lum ber that will net them not less than $5,- 000,000," Ih Marriage Tie.
