Trainmen Maul Always Appear

One railroad company with offices
in Chicago has long made the study
of etiquette one of the duties of its
trainmen. The men must not swear,
nor use slang, nor he peevish, nor dis
courteous, says the Chicago Inter
The Erie Railroad company now
comes along with still a newer idea.
The trainmen must always appear as
dapper as a stroller on the boulevard.
They must keep their shoes well
shined. Their clothes must fit them
faultlessly, and, most of all, there
must he creases in the trousers of
every uniformed employe of the road
Down in Indiana, at a division
point, three of four tailors are kept
busy pressing uniforms. Roth in
Chicago and at the other end of the
run bootblacks are employed to keep
clean the “boots" of the employes.
The idea of making a dapper-look
ing company out of the employes is
new to Chicago, although the idea has
been tried in t lie east for several
weeks. At Jersey City six tailors are
constantly employed and tlie boot
blacks are kept busy.
Each employe Is given two tickets,
one of which passes current with flic
tailor, while the other is as good ns
a dime with the bootblacks. Each
employe is told to use the tickets
freely, to look well all times, and not
to he bashful about asking for. new
tickets when the old ones are gone.

One day last summer, when the
leading teams were running very
close, a reporter called on Cardinal
(llhhons to ask him some questions
regarding the pope’s encyclical which
had recently been published. The
cardinal granted the interview and

“Have you heard to-day’s score?"
“Yes," said the surprised reporter
"it wns 2 to 3 and in our favor.”

smile, “that put us two points ahead,

In some countries w alking-st hks are

tlie skin of the animal Is obtained a
leather suitable for making sword

abound on the const of Nicaragua, and

that the fins, backbone and skins might

A genius hailing from North London
has been struck uuli a brilliant con
ception for ridding back gardens and
outhouse roofs of philandering cats.
It consists of nothing less than the
invention of a fearsome automation
tomcat made up of a tin frame and
covered with afurcoat.
“Tom” is us black as the darkest
night, with a still' black tail standing
up defiantly In the air, and a ghostly
look in its sightless eyes, which, when
roused to anger, send forth a light cal
culated to make even Ulysses tremble.
This baneful glare is produced by a
four-volt electic battery stowed away
in that portion of "Tom’s” anatomy
generally occupied by the digestive
The general principle of construc
tion, according to the Jlritish inventor,
is based upon powerful clock work, re
leased by a lever when the tail of the
animal is moved.
The clock works a pai'r of bellows,
with two loud-screeching reeds, at the
some time forming contact to light the
lamps in the eyes, and forcing outward
a dozen long needle points, which come
up through the skin of the back. Hie
tail also acta as a trigger, and releases
a hammer formed of the lower jaw of
the eat, which explodes two percussion
caps in the mouth. '
One night an experiment was made.
The clockwork was wound up and the
beast placed in a hack garden. In due
course a ferocious tabby of loose char
acter and with chips oil' its ears walked
up to the stranger to give battle, while
a dozen of Ills lady friends sat around
to see the fun.
In feline language, the tabby appears
to have asked his lady friends not to
crowd into the ring, a nd t o watch close
ly w hile he prepared “Tom” for the un
dertaker. He began b\ walking up to
a wall and sharpening In's claws. Then
became hack wagging all that was left
of his tail in an aggressive and insult
ing manner, and took the measure of
his silent enemy.
Without the slightest provocation he
flew at the automatic eat, removed a
lump of loose hair from his hack, and
broke his tail in half.
That ended the first round, but it was
only the signal for the tin tomcat to get
into action. The fail exploded the per
cussion caps in the cat’s mouth with a
sound resembling that of a 4.7; the
electric eyes blazed out like Ladysmith
searchlights, while heart - rending
shrieks rent the air from (he bellows

Woman \\ ho llun Slept Since May 2t,

(tuentln, France.
Marguerite Floyenval, of Thenelles,
near Saint (Quentin, France, who had
hern in a cataleptic state since May
21, lss.l, was awakened the other day
and died the next morning’. For
some time she has been suffering
from phthisis, and it is believed that
the effect of (ids malady on her sys
tem conduced to her reawakening.
She moved her hand six days be
fore her death for the first time and
groaned slightly. When Dr. Charlier
took hold of her arm she said: “You
are pinching me,” and subsequently
replied to questions by “Yes” and
“No.” She was, however, in a state
of great weakness, and gradually
sank, finally dying.
Marguerite Iloyenval’s lethargy
was caused by fright. She had had
a child, which died shortly after its
birth under circumstances which led
to the opening of a judicial investi
gation One day in May, 188,1, while
Marguerite was ironing, a neighbor
said to her: “The gendarmes are
coming to arrest you.” Marguerite
had a series of fits and gradually fell
into her long slumber.

Superintendent Richard Sylvester,
of the metropolitan police of Wash
ington, D. C., has made public a po
lice regulation for that city, which
reads: “T spit on any sidewalk or

commissioners of the District of Co

The Canadian government has is
sued a census bulletin, which gives
statistics as to agriculture iu Al
berta, Assiniboia and Saskatchewan,
which united compose the Northwest
territory. The total area of these
territories is 100,963,117 acres. Of
this area, 75.99 per cent. Is unim
proved. Field crops, exclusive of hay,
occupy 53 per cent, of the improved
land, but only a fair beginning has
been made with fruit trees and veg
etables. The area of land in wheat,
oats, barley, rye. corn. pens, potatoes
and other field roots in 1891 was 194,-
773 acres, an increase in a decade
of 333 per cent.

Statistics gathered by the Now
York board of health show that
widowers of all races, colors, and
• reeds take less kindly to a second
dose of single blessedness than do
widows. Of the total lumber of per
sons seeking the marital suite in the
standard year the bereaved ones of
both sexes made up one-tenth of the
list and the widowers outdid the
widows to the number of 556. Since
the reports of the board deal solely
with indisputable facts and leave de
batable theories to the speculative
mind the inquirer has to look else
where tor an explanation of the dis
parity in figures, lie finds it in vari
ous sources, but the authorities con
sulted disagree. However, the pre
ponderance of testimony indicates
that woman, by the sweetness of hei
disposition, contributes more ma
terially to a man’s happiness than he
does to hers, and that, having lost
one spouse, he is never satisfied until
lie finds -somebody else like her.
