In the Introduction to Poor's Uannal For 1900, Just Issued, It la shown that there are 100.833 miles of unnhu railroad in this country. The net In crease In mileage last year was 3,981 miles. The aggregate capltar-stock of these roads is $5,742,181,181 and the aggregate . funded debt $5,644,858,027. The enmber of railroad corporations in this country is about 1,735, not includ ing private railroads, and about 910 companies conduct the traffic opera tions of all the railroads. The tenden cy to absorption by consolidation Is in creasing constantly. Within recent years 1,783 railroad companies, with an aggregate mileage of 142,177, have passed out of legal existence. Fifty three companies own and operate 131,- 797 miles of railroad. Of this milease 85,850 Is leased. The total assets of all the railroads In the country at the beginning of this year were S12,- 0245,623. Within recent years, through reorganization, there has been an Increase in share capital .of $454, 407,316, while in bonded debts there was the large reduction of $227,239.- 978, so that on the basis of mileage of railroad owned the reorganized com panies are capitalized for $38,006 per mile of stock against $31,711 before reorganization and $34,227. peV mile of bonds against $39,599 under the . old organizations. The Burlington's new line between Alliance. Neb., and Brash. Colo- has been formally opened to general traffic The new branch Is 149.69 miles long and Is laid with 85 pound steel rails. It makes a short route between Den ver and the rich mining districts of South Dakota and Montana. The new line connects with the sys tem's Guernsey extension at North- port, Neb- and practically opens up new transcontinental railway be tween Colorado and points in Montana, Washington and the north Pacific coast. Under previous conditions the Burlington's - traffic between Denver and the Black Hills had been handled by way of Lincoln. - The new cut off reduces the distance 673 miles. A passenger la now able to leave Dead wood in the morning and reach Den ver the same nieht. The new line will be of marked lm- : portance to the lumber and shingle in terests of the Paget sound district, as It will open up a new market This trade has heretofore, to a great extent, been shut off from the Colorado mar kets because of the long haul. The next international railway con gress will be held in Washington in Oc tober, 1904. A cable dispatch from W. F. Allen, secretary of the American Railway association, announcing that fact has been received at the offices of the association In New York. Mr. Al len, who is one of the American dele gates to the international railway con gress which has been in session In the French capital, says that a pressing in vitation by the delegates from this country has been extended to the con gress and that the members of that body had informed Mr. Allen of their acceptance. Cyrus S. Sedgwick, prominently iden tified with a railway block signal com pany, who returned from Europe re cently, commenting upon the few safe ty devices in use on European rail ways, says: "They are Just beginning to use block signals over there, ana the Paris, Lyons and Mediterranean, a progressive road. Is installing a sys tem of disk signals. I visited the Paris exposition, and I was naturally inter ested in looking at safety appliances for the use of railways. I was much surprised to find that there was only one railway block signal on exhibition In the whole ef position, and. strangely enough, that was not put in by the company that manufactures It It was our signal, but It was put on exhibi tion by the Paris, Lyons and Mediter ranean, which is quite proud of Its new equipment While I was at the exposi tion two prominent Italian civil engi neers came along. They saw the sig nal working and were so Interested In the affair that they traveled several hundred miles to see one in actual Op eration, owing to the impression tne model made on them. 1 understand they Intend to Introduce the signals in Italv. Our country, with the enormous amounts of money spent yearly on Au tomatic couplers, track and block sig nals and signal towers and other sate- ty devices, still sees many accidents. It Is wonderful to think that, witn so little precaution abroad, there are not greater and more frequent accidents.' . The Great Northern railway, says a Montreal dispatch. Is now all bat com pleted and will within a month take its place as one of tne great gram carry ing roads of Canada. This road, start ing from Quebec, runs In a southwest erly direction to Hawkesburyi Ont, where it Joins the Canada Atlantic sys tem, which runs to Parry sound, on the Georgian bay, and has In connection with It a fleet of grain boats on the up per-great lakes. The great bridge over the Ottawa river Is not yet altogether completed, but trains will be able to si bv the middle of October, and the line will then be formally opened to traffic In order to handle the grain which It expects to carry the railway has built a million bushel elevator at Quebec Moore's Pilules are a guaranteed euro for all forms of Malaria, Ague Chills and fever.

' Henry Clay as a young man was ex tremely bashful, although he possessed uncommon brightness of Intellect and fascinating - address, without effort making the little he knew pass for much more. In the early part'of hie career he settled in Lexington, Va,, where he found the society most con genial, though the clients seemed some what recalcitrant to the young lawyer. He Joined a debating society at length, but for several meetings be remained a silent listener. One evening, after a lengthy debate, the subject was being put to a vote, when Clay was heard to observe softly to a friend that the matter in question was. by no means exhausted. He" was at once asked to speak and after some hesitation rose to his feet Finding himself thus unexpectedly confronted by ap audience, he was covered with confusion and began, as he- had fre quently done in Imaginary appeals to the court, "Gentlemen of the Jury." . A titter that ran through the au dience only served to heighten his em barrassment and the obnoxious phrase fell from his lips again. Then he gath ered himself together and launched in to a peroration so brilliantly lucid and Impassioned, that it carried the house by storm and laid the cornerstone to his future greatness, his first case com ing to him as a result of this speech, which some consider the finest he ever made. Collier's Weekiy. Odd Ideas of Pravldeaee. The temperance lecturer, John B. Qough, bad occasion In one of his ad dresses to refer to the Indiscriminate and arbitrary yet consoling doctrinel or Providence.. He said: "Some people have strange Ideas on this matter. Once when a ship was In danger a lady went to the captain In great distress. 'We must trust In Providence, madam,' said be. . 'Goodness gracious, is It as bad as that? she cried. "A washerwoman had her little shan ty burned down. She stood before the wreck and. lifting her eyes to beaten and shaking her fist exclaimed, 'You see if I don't work on Sundays to, pay for thatr "In the firth of Forth a vessel struck on a rock, and a tug was drawing nigh to the rescue. A boy much alarmed, was clinging to his mother. She said, 'Ye must pit yer trust in Providence, Jamie.' " 'I will, mither, as soon as 1 get Into that Ither boat' "In New York a Dutchman with a companion went Into Delmonico's to get lunch. They were charged $6. One of the men began to swear, as he thought the charges excessive. 'Don't you swear,' said the other. 'Providence has punished that man Delmonico very bad already.' 'How Is that? How has he punished blmr 'Why. I've got my pockets full of his forks and spoons.' " Kansas City Independent. Btlqaett la 16X4. Here Is a curtous extract from the court regulations of the Hofburg for the year 1624 on the etiquette to be ob served by officers when Invited to the royal table. The regulation Deglns by stating that officers usually behave un der such circumstances "with great po liteness and good breeding, like true nd worthy cavaliers," but that the emperor thinks It necessary to issue the following directions for the use of Inexperienced cadets: 1. Officers sbouldcome to the palace handsomely dressed nud not enter the room In a half drunken state. '2. When they are at table, they should not rock about on their chairs nor sit back and stretch out their legs. '3. They should not drink after each mouthful, as by so doing they will very soon get drank, nor drink more than half a glass at a time, and before drinking they should wipe their lips and moustacbips. '4. Tbey should not put their hands in the dishes nor throw bones under the table. '5. They should not lick their fin gers nor drink so brutally as to fall off their chairs."
