Two young ladies of Terra Haute
were returning from California. The
parlor cor they wero in was crowded with
passongcra. At a Binall station a woman
in ahowy attire entered and demanded
a whole sootion of Bleeping car. It was
not to be had, aud the conductor, brake
man, porter and cook, who seemed to
be impressed with the new passenger's
importance, were all painfully excroised
to know where to put her. They looked
at the other passengers with scorn, and
seemed, without exactly asking, to de
mand an apology for their appearance
in the cor where they had paid for rights
and privileges. The oausp of all this
commotion was very blonde, very large,
rery richly clothed and very swell.
When it seemed impossible to get her a
whole section, or even half a one, she
turned to the young ladies and said :

One of them, a sleepy old follow, was

German peddler, who did not know any

emptied his milk in pitchers as though
there was" no care on his mind. Sunday
morning the German was delivering
some alleged milk iuto a girl's tin recep
