How They are Used and How They Grow so Large, Travelers and commuters have often to consider the trains as numbered in what appears to them inexplicable ways. For example, a request at the information bureau of the Grand Cen tral station will elicit the reply that train No. 470 will not stop at Peekskill or on the New Haveu line that train No. 570 will stop on Saturdays at Cos cob, but not on other days; that on the Pennsylvania train No. 634 will stop at Metuchen, but not at Rahway; that on the Delaware and Lackawanna train No. 410 is an EaBton express, and that train No. 399 is the millionaire's special lo Bernardsville and will stop only at Newark. The traveler knows, of course, that there are not so many trains and ■only identifies them by the hoar of de parture and arrival, so this information is usually vague enough as given by numbers to him, although relevant enough to railroad nteu, for it tells of the historv of the trains. When the railroads were new they put on a passenger train numbered 1 and 2 and a freight train numbered 3 and 4, and they increased this service according to the demauds of traffic, raisiug the numbers consecutively, the even numbered trains running one way, the odd numbered trains the other. As the exacting demands of new business developed trains were increased, and some of the old ones were dropped, but their numbers, which still lived in the minds of the operatives, could not be readily duplicated, and they named them with still higher numbers until their numerical titles have lost relation to tbeir source except in the minds of employees. But as the railroads ex tended themselves and a generation of employees passed they returned to the primal numbers for their important trains, so that trains 1 and 2, 3 and 4, 5 and 6, etc., are on nearly all railways the through expresses. But the origin al trains, by shifting of time or other causes, run under titles of 400, 500 or some numeration that means nothing to the traveler, but to the railroad man reveals its history from origin to date. —New York Press. Honor Thy Mother. Honor thy dear old mother. Time has scattered the snowy flakes upon her brow and plowed deep furrows on her cheek, but is bhe not beautiful now? The lips are thin and shruuk, but those are the lips that have kissed away many a hot tear from the childish cheek, and they are the sweetest lips in the world The eye is dim, yet it glows with soft radiauce of holy love that can never fade. Yes, site is a dear old mother. The sands of time are nearly ruu out, but feeble as she is, she will go farther aud reach down lower for you than any other on earth. You cannot walk into a midnight where she cauuot see you; you cannot euter a prison where bars will keep her out; you can never mount a scaffold too high for her to reach aud bless you with her deathless love. When the world shall despise and for sake you, wheu it leaves you by the wayside to die unnoticed, the dear old mother will gather you iu her feeble old arm» aud carry you home and tell you of all your virtues until you almost forget that your soul is disfigured by vice. Love her tenderly and cheer her declining years with holy devotion. g od deal iu Ire His mother , Gugiielmo Marconi, the young Italian electrical eugiueer whose iuveutiou of wireless telegraphic apparatus several years ago pia. ed him iu the front rank among the inventors a< d scientists of the present day, was born in Bologna, Aprd 25, 1875. Though educated iu Italy, be has lived laud and later in America, was au Irish woman, aud many of the ] young iuveutor's characteristics are more Irish than Italian. His first prac tical experiments with wireless tele graphy were made in Dublin bay. In 1899 he established wireless communi cation between France pnd England across the English channel. His sys tem is now used exclusively by Lloyd's and the principal shipping companies in England and abroad and is also em ployed by the navies of Great Britain, Italy and other powers. A few years ago the maximum distance that a wire less message could be transmitted was 14 }4 miles. Since then it haB been found possible to communicate across the Atlautic ocean by the wireless sys tem. For his contributions to science Signor Marconi has been decorated by several of the European governments. Two Quacks Taken Back. He was a young doctor, the chief as sistant of a physician who advertised extensively that he could cure every ill. At the lunch hour he would eat at a restau tant where the waiters, in giving orders to the cook, indulged iu a jargon often times highly amusing. Thisyouug doctor frequently informed his chief how clever the waiters were iu using culinary euphemisms. One day he or dered sausage and buckwheat cakes aud he^rd tike waiter shout: "Door mats with a string of mystery!'* Another time he ordered spaghetti, cheese aud lamb, and the translation hurled to the kitchen was : ''Dago's breath with a bleat!" The older dbetor said he could give an order that .would completely stump the waiter, as it would be im possible, on the spur of the moment, to invent anything the cook could under stand. A bet was made and the next day the two doctors who advertised aud put their pictures in the papers repair ed to the restaurant. The older one ordered the breast of two duetts larded. To his consternation the waiter imme diately bawled: "Two quacks; chesty; hog 'em!" Real Evidence. "My only objection to the young man," said the father, speaking of the youth who proposed to his daughter, "is that he doesn't seem to have the least bit of foresight." "But," answered the mother, "he lias as much sense as you had when you asked for my hand." "Confound it! That's just why 1 ob ject to him."—Philadelphia Inquirer.
