A SOtARE DEAL FOR ALL, MAIN STREAM DIVIDES Making Two Rivers Which Arc Creep- ing Surely Onward Toward the Valley Cities. iNsoclated Ptvkk Cable to The Evening Tlmea. Naples, April 6'.—The eruption of Mount Ves'uvins is now most violent. On tin Pompeii side the main stream of lava has divided into two, one threatening Ottajano, a commune of 20,200 inhabitants, the other threaten ing Toredel Greco, with a population of 30,000. The danger is serious and calls for the immediate evacuation of Bosco trecaz, the nearest village to the cra ter, which has a population of 9,000 souls. The streams of lava, which are dif fusing great heat, are progressing with considerable rapidity in the direction of Pompeii. From the new crater, which is 20 feet in circumference, the lava has already gone two miles and a half. Hot mud, ashes and black sand are also ejected, which, with rain, produce a so-called caustic rain, which is most damaging to vegetation. Al though the showers of cinders here have diminished, peoples can be seen holding up uAbrellas as a protection against the falling ashes.

The news that the Belfast & North ern Counties railway of Ireland has offered free traveling for ten years to proprietors or tenants of new houses along its line between Belfast and Lough Lame has been widely com mented upon. One of the chief grievances of male travelers has been the invasion by ladies of smoking compartments. The writer has noticeil that the Midland company has recently labeled a num ber—possibly all—of their smoking compartments, "Smokers only." French railway carriages standing higher from the platform than ours I do, it has Ions been a source ol' com plaint on the part of ladies and in valids that they were most difficult to enter or descend from. The Paris, 1 Lyons & Maditerannean company is I remedying this matter by the pro vision of portable steps for the con venience of those who are not able bodied. These steps are a yard in breadth and covered with thick car pet. The employes are directed to place them, at the disposal of anyone who asks for them. Another most excellent regulation which has recently come into force on French lines and which our own com panies would do well to copy is to the effect that any first or second-class passenger traveling with valuables, such as specie, important documents, jewelry, paintings or the like may have a compartment reserved for him either by paying the price of a single ticket or by the payment of a charge calculated on a weight ten times that of the package. Russia is not usually supposed to be particularly up to date in any re spect, yet there is one line at least, the Kursk-Charkov-Sebastopol, which has shown that its methods are very far removed' from those of barbarism. The company has built a traveling bath for use along the line by all their employes and their families. The bath consists of two cars connected with each other by a covered way. One contains baths fitted with hot and cold water the other consists of dressing rooms. The traveling bath is moved along from one station to another ac cording to a regular schedule, and re mains there for so many hours, during which time the employes and their families can use it free of charge. Certain American railways, espe cially the South Florida and other southern lines, carry clergymen in the dress of their profession free of charge. This Is a most valuable eon cession to the clergy, whose parishes are in some cases as large as an Eng lish county. The late Episcopal bish op of south Florida once told the writ er that his average yearly journeying by rail within his own diocese was 4,000 to 5.000 miles.—Tit Bits. 4£iWts®} ff T- -, n£ V-* «*x PAGES.
