THE latest pilgrim to the Presidential shrine at Indianapolis is John Wann maker of Philadelphia. He has returned home just as well satisfied as Platt, Quay, Longstreet, Alger and all of the others.

District Attorney Fellows of New York suggests that the metropolitan paptrs would do the public a great service by not printing the evidence in trials as im portant as the ■"boodle" cases, quaint« the publie with facts on which they can form opisions, and thus delays or prevents the obtaining of a jury in case of a retrial, or of another trial in volving the same evidence.

New Castle, Del., Jan. 34.—For some time there has been a movement on foot to organize a good operatic -dra matic club from local talent of -this citv. Tbe alumni of the High School has within it good talent. They have given one popular drama entitled "Down by the Sea," and are now contemplating the ren dition of an opera. The Irving Dramatic Society la In a disorganized condition. Independent of either of the named aocleties there is a new one started which promises to be a grand success, In it there will be three bf the persons who took the prominent roles in "Down by the Sea," and a number of other young people possessing excellent talent for any • thing of the kind. It is very likely that one of the first plays to be given by this company, if it succeeds in becoming thoroughly organized, will be a Shake spearean play. The object of the society will be to present interesting, attractive and refined plays, and all necessary to make them successes will be the generous pport of the citizens given on similiy More will be said later on concerning this movement.

A SKILLFUL MAN WHO DOES NOT SHOW IN THE RING. RraTn Work of the Railroad Contractor. A Man of Large Experience and Burden some Dutke«, Who Is Not a« Well Known as the Clown. There has always been more or lets mystery surrounding the sudden arrival ond-departure of «11 large circuses, and even the newspaper man, who is supposed to know everything and more too, often stands aghast at the wlll-o'-the-wisp manner in which the great Barnum & Bailey shows manage to make a tour of the continent year after year, exhibit ing in a different town nearly every day, scarcely ever missing on exhibition, and al ways on time. "How is It done!" asked a Times reporter of an old showman whose hair had grown gray in surveying the United field. "Well, it is just this way," replied the vet eran, as he lighted a fresh cigar and leaned back in a comfortable position against the wall. "You see, the first man that starts out in advance of the circus is the railroad con tractor, as he is termed, and he must not only be a man of vast experience, but a walking encyclopedia as well. Among all the agents and managers connected with the great army of circus and theatrical enterprises, tew of them understand the art of successfully pilot ing a largo show over tbe ebuntry and so ar ranging everything that it is 'plain sailing' Kir the several advertising cars and the many railway trains that follow afterwords, as in the case of 'Barnum's greatest show on earth.' First of all, the proposed route for the entire season is carefully mapped put by tho man ager, who must determine upon the territory he wishes to visit, and then tho railroad contractor is called in 'to lay out' the route and arrange tho order of towns, or 'stands,' os they are called in show imrlance. CONSIDERING ALL THE DETAILS. "Hero begins tho brain work of tho route agent and the deepest study of the successful manager. It is no easy mutter to even take a map and jot down the best and most prom ising show towns in such a manner us to make tho 'runs' easy and practicable. A thousand and one questions will arise, aud they must be answered then and there. It will not do to mako a 'double run'—that is, pass over two distinct roods in going from one show stand to another—as it usually doubles tho price of transportation and often causes serious dé laya Therefore tho route must bo so ar ranged that only ono line is used on the same day, and this often necessitates making pe culiar geographical courues in order to bring tho towns to bo visited in proper rotation, and whenever it is necessary to mako a long jump or use two railroads in making Ihe 'run' it must bo done on Sunday, in order to give ample timo to make tho transfers and reach tho place of destination before daylight ou Monday morning. "Ail tho while you must bo looking fur enough ahead to bring tho show into a cer tain part of the country just at the right sea son of tho your—that is, avoiding an agricul tural district in planting timo or harvest, catching tho New England and coast country before the regular excursion and picnic sea son sets in, swinging back into the wheat growing section after tho grain has boon gathered and tho farmers feci flush and ready for tun, swooping down through Illinois and Indiana 'when the frost is on the pumpkin and tho corn is la the shock,' and later on wending its way through the southern states just in timo to reap a rich reward for the pains ami foresight of waiting until the last lia le of cotton 1* marketed and the festive darkies are willing to give up their last dollar for a 'yaller keard to the cirkis.' "Armed with all this knowledge the rail road contractor set* out to negotiate with the various railway manager* fur the transporta tion of the show in the order mentioned. Nothing daunted, he approaches the general manager or general freight agent of a given line—probably renews old acquaintances— and at once proceeds to business. With sur quick precision he states and often astonishes tbe prising facility and just what he wants, railway magnates themselves by giving them information about track facilities amt their connections with other roads atoertoin points, which they could not vouchsafe without call ing la the general traffic manager or tele graphing to some distant place for the desired knowledge. He usually knows every side track from Bangor to Ban Francisco, and by some kind of psychological reasoning is able to tell whether there is a 'Y' at Cranberry orosdng and if it is possible to mako a trans fer of tho entire circus train at that point and reach Growler City before Gam. the the and NO TIME FOR PLEASURE. "Having ascertained that everything is in perfect order and agreed upon terms, he whisks out a blank contract, fills it up in short order, gets tho official signature of the road, obtains sufficient documents and orders to pass the advance agents and advertising cars over tho road, extends his best compli ments—perhaps I should say complimcutoriea —to tho officers of tho line, bids them good day, and departs. No, he does not go and play billiards after that. Ho has no time for such pleasures. Tbe cor orders, transporta tion and other information has to be mailed back to tho various agents; the contract and all details of the 'runs' must bo sent to the manager, and a letter of instructions written to tho master of transportation, who has tho show in charge from the time that it is ready to load upon tho cars until it is unloaded at the post show stand. "Then, too, ho must consult tho maps and 'guides' and determine upon tho optent çf the excursion routes to be made and notify tlie excursion agent who follows closely in his wake and arranges with the passenger agents of all lines centering at the place of exhibi tion for special trains and low rates of fare on tho sliow day. The contractor and excur sion agent are closely allied, and much tho same methods apply in perfecting the ar rangements of both. Few persons unfamiliar with the duties of these dignitaries realize the many details they have to look after or tlx* necessity of immediate action and thorough investigation on their port.

Some visitors who lately went through the Queen of Scots' apartments at Holy rood Palace, were shown by the guide, who seemed to have spoken a little beyond his commission, a certain passage and a large jutting stone like a step, aud tho ' following curious statement then let fall : A short time ago, when some repairs were being made in the Queen of Scots' room,a stonemason struck the jutting-out stone above mentioned, which rang hollow. He had the curi osity to turn It up, and discovered the re mains of a baby wrapped in cloth of gold, and marked "J." Now it is well known that Mary Stuart gave birth to James I of England and VI of Scotland in the ad joining room, and that immediately after the birth the child was removed and brought up elsewhere, the Queen show ing small interest in her offspring. Now, supposing the real child, the real James, is the infant wrapped in the cloth of gold, lying under that stone, who was the other child who afterwards reigned as James I of England and VI of Scotland? Did this question ever occur to the au thorities? This will «bst be answered by asking how they are said to have treated the discovery. They telegraphed at once to the high personage in London, whose business it is to control Holy rood Palace. What did he? u a - He sent back word "to make no fuss aboutit," but to replace the baby in -cloth of gold marked "J" under the stone, and pre sumably thene he stlU lies.
