' ItAllroaullns; In Early Days, A writer in the Hartford Courant gives reminiscences of railroadiug in Con necticut forty yenra 8(o. When the Hartford and New Haven road was first oneqed. it had very meagre facilities'. The road-bed was poor, had only scrap rails, which were all the while curling up and runniug through the car floors, and the care were small and tbe locomo tive weak. In (act, it did not take much to block a train in those days. Some times an 'inch of snow on the rails would do it. One of the first conductors 1 on the road tells how be and the bag- f;age master used to sit in front of the ocomotive, one on each side, and brush off the snow from the rails with a broom as the train slowly crawled along. Each bad a pail of sand and sprinkled a hand ful on tho rail when necessary. Tbe driving wheels (engines bad only one cair then) bad to slip round and round, and torment them almost to death. On one occasion a train got stuck on the Yalesville grade by one inch ot snow, and the wood and water gave out before the locomotive could over come it. At last they got out the neigh bors, yoked four pairs of oxen to the traiu and drew it, passengers, baggage and all, into Meriden with flying colors! In tbe early days of .the railroad, the stage coach drivers used to regard the cars with great contempt. Indeed, thirty years ago tbe paisenget trains were three or fonr hours on the road to New Haven, and tbe stage coaches were in about the same time. Superintendent Davidson remembers riding in a two horse carriage in 1H 10, which bad a race with a passenger train near Willing field, where the turnpike and railroad are parallel for three or four miles, and during all that time the carriage kept even with the train. There were only two trains eaeh way daily then, both can-vine passengers and freight. The old cars were divided into three com partments, opened on the side, and bad twenty-two seats. The locomotive had only twelve-inch cylinders, and no cabs to protect the engineer and fireman from the weather. Tiger Extermination In India.

It is strange that, after all our scientific metheds of campaigning against the .lira, ma atinnlri he obliired to fall back on the simple tactics of an obscure and semi-savage lull trine, ne nave cun ningly planned, but to no purpose, that the animal should shoot himself while eating his dinner. We have even in duced him to swallow doses of stryih- nine, only to discover to our murtmi; tion that he actually returns to bis poisoned carcases as if be rather liked it.

Rev. Henry Ward Beecher makes this reply, in the Christian Union, to a query as to whether it was wicked to dance: "It is wicked when it is wicked, and not wicked when it is not wicked. In itself it has do more moral character than walking, wrestling or rowing. Bad com' pany, untimely hours, evil dances, may make the exercise evil; good company, wholesome hours, and home influences, may make it a very great benefit." A few days since a boy was passing through the cars on the trie railroad, handing out advertisements of "Nothing to Wear," illustrated. A lady remarked to a gentleman, " This takes off the la dies, I soppose." "No, it only takes oil their dresses," replied her friend. "Then, it is proper that a stripling should sell it," replied the lady. Appleton's Journal hag an editorial indicting women for such neglect of their home duties that their husbands and sons have been driven to seek plea sures whose outcome is intemperance and ruin. A paragraph gives the drift ot the article: " The average American interior is oppressively dreary. The women would rather their song should idle tbe day nt the postnllice, the village store or the ale home, than let tbe sun beams enter their parlors and fade the carpets. They would rather their sons and husbands should at night enjoy the good cheer of the public house, than light an extra candle, build a glowing fire or permit social hilarity within the awful shadows of their shut-up apart ments. In these homes the whole art is to discover the art of not to live. To keep all things neat and orderly and circumspect; to preseut no Haw for the edilicatiou of Mrs. Grundy; to suppress all impulses, all tastes, all pleasures, all heartiness, all life these things seem to be tbe great purpose of the ascetic women who control them." . The.two committees who were to con fer together on the union of tbe Presby terian and Cumberland Presbyterian churches have had a most amicable con ference, and the propositions for con solidation were considered to be satis factory. Another meeting will be had, at which a final decision of the commit tees will be made and submitted to the General Assemblies for approval, Tbe Cumberland Presbyterians have about 1000 ministers and 1:10,000 members. The Presbyterian church cousists of 4.YM ministers and 472,023 communi cants. The will of Sophia J. Snow, of Bruns wick, Maine, admitted to probate in Boston on Monday, gives 185,000 to charitable institutions, chiefly in or near Boston, of which 120,000 goes to the Sailors' Snug Harbor in Quincy. She closed her will with the following toler ably plain language: "I forbid all per son or persons to break this my last will and testament, and whoever attempts to break it. or breaks it. may he, she or they find no peace for mind or body in this world or the world to come."
