that she would bo at liberty to choose

to Miss Mary Mulcahy in Montreal,

At a trial in Augusta, Ga., recently,
a man was sentenced to seven years
imprisonment. Counsel for the defense
urged the judge to change the sentence,
saying that his client could not possi

"Well, then," replied the judge, "I
will change the sentence. I will make
it for life instead of for seven years."
Tho prisoner preferred the first sen.

M. K. Barber died at Kansas City
last week, leaving an estate of about

K. Barber, who claims to be a son of

the will. The defense introduced a
novel plea, which was based on the fol
lowing remarkable story: Barber's
first wife died in jving birth to a boy.
Whon one day old tho boy was placed
in charge of an aunt who had tho same
day given birth to a boy. One of the
boys died, and the nurse was at a loss
to tell which. It was finally deoided
that it was the son of young Barber's
aunt. Tho defense claimed that it
was M. K. Barber's son who died, and
(that John K. was the nephew of the
deceased. T,he easo was compromised

Austin Statesman : War is always

It would bring up a now crop of mil

Archer, traclini! passenger agent of
the Texas and l'acinc, learns of a fel
low that is passing off for h'm and
swindling the railway ticket agents in
Illinois and Indiana. His method is
to carry with him a bundle of Texas
and Pacific and Missouri Pacific maps,
present his card to tho agent, with
whom he leaves a number of maps,
and then prevails upon him to endorse
a draft payable to the order of H. C.
Archer, signed by It. Finley, auditor,
and drawn upon the treasurer of the
Texas and Paoific. This done, he
takes his draft to the bank and cashes
it. Several of theso drafts reached
Dallas and were protested. A ticket
agent at Kankakee, 111., who buffered
to the extent of $125, thus describes
him . A light comploxioned man about
five feet nine inches tall, weighing
about 145 pounds; has a sandy mus

silk hat with a broad band of orcpe.
It is learned that his first crooked work
in this line was done under tho namo

TO LONDON BY RAIL
It Out Ito Done It May Well De Asked,
There ia a jnobablllty that tho Inhabi
tants of America during tho next cen
tury w ill be ablo to go from Now York
to London by rail. It is not to bo ex
pected tlmt nny ono will go this route to
avo time, for lio will be obliged in trav
ersing it to go westward, nnd thence
around tho globo; but it would git c the
traveler nn opportunity to visit many
foreign countries, and literally to see tho
w orld. An ocean steamer has already
made, moro than GOO miles In ono day,
nnd tho Atlantic is now traversed in six
days, ultilo tho proposed trip around tho
w orld would rcqutro perhaps doublo or
triple this timer but tho novelty of tho
trip w on Id bo something remarkable.

THE I'EOPOSED ROUTE.
The projected routo is from Now York
across North America to a point beyond
tho northwestern boundary of tho United
Stat 03; tlienco to Behring straits; across
thero to tho coast of Asia; across Asia
and Europe. Tho great gap is at present
across Siberia, where thero is 'no rail
road. However, the recent movements
of tho Russian government tend towards
putting rails across this territory. From
tho w cstcrn continent of Europe to tho
Urol mountains thero is now communica
tion by rail, and tho czar of Russia is
said to bo much interested in two lines
of railway across Asia. Theso roads
tcrminato on tho eastern shores of the
Pacific, tho one terminating at Oren
burg, tho other at Ekaterinburg. But
in order to mako tho chain of railway
around the globo complete, tho distanco
from St. Petersburg to Behring straits
must bo traversed. This region has not
yet a singlo lino of railway.
Tho Russian government, feeling the
necessity of spanning this territory, has
sanctioned a lino of railway to bo built
across it, terminating at Vladlvistock
near Japan, almost duo west from Port
land, Ore. Tho continents of Asia und
America are much nearer at this parallel
than further south, but not near enough
for tho purposes of international railw ay
communication. For this thero must be
a branch lino leaving tho Russian road
a considerable distance west from Vla
dlvistock and running up through Siberia
to Behring straits.
It fa understood that tho crossing of
Behring straits is perfectly practicable.
In tho narrowest place they aro but ten
milc3 wide and aro full of islands, so
that bridges can bo thrown from ono to
another. During a portion of tho year
tho straits are open and cars could be
crossed on boats tho eamo as across the
river between Detroit and Windsor,
Tho principal American tract unpro
vided for is across Alaska. As yet there
is no move to traverse this country,
which is almost an unknown wilderness.
But with the rapid pushing westward on
tho continent and the valuable products
to bo gained from Alaska, it is probable
that not many years will elapso before
tho American Pacific roads will be
pushed to the Straits.
Tho distances to bo railed ore:
United States boundary to Behring straits.. 2,000
Behring straits to junction with Russian Pa
cific railway r 2,000
Junction to European Una at ELatcrm
Total yet to be constructed 7,KM

in congress, and Sir 'Richard Cartwrisht,
