The line is to extend from Lake Win nipeg to Port Churchill, on Hudson Bay, a usance of 400 miles, and the estimates are Ibat the road can be built in two years, at a *ost of $0,000,000. The rivers and Vay, they claim, will be navigable iuur months in the year, a sufficient time in *-hich to ship the grain of the Red River Valley. They wish the counsel arid moral iupport of the American side and data to shjw something of the amount of products to be shipped. Delegates were appointed to the Emerson convention.

[New York New 3.] In many countries ice is obtained from natural ice-houses, wherein, while the ordi nary temperature outside is 80 degrees, ice is continually forming. Such a ravine or cavern has been found in New Jersey, and near Lincoln, Vermont, there is a glen in which snow and ice lie all the year round. One of the most remarkable of these ice caverns is that of Dobschan, in Hungary. It is quite near the town, and is approached though a narrow, winding limestone valley, called "Stracenaer Thai." It is in the interior of a mountain, having a general direction east and west. The entrance is near the top and extremely narrow, and was only discov ered by accident. Once, inside, a remark able scene is beheld, the ica, which seems formed in many layers, having assumed all the peculiar shapes that characterize the limestone caves of our o'.vn country. The total rock aud ice surface in the cave alone occupy about 21,000 square foet. The cave is divided into two parts, upper and lower. In the upper part the roof is of limestone, and the floor of solid ice, aud it is divided into two great halls of wondrous beauty. The roof of the largest hall is sup ported by three enormous pillai-s of clear ice, one of which is hollow, and through which flows a stream from above, produeiug Strange echoes and reverberations. All about are fantastic forms of ice resembling human bo ings, pulpits, monuments anl so on, giving to the cave a most grotesque appearance. Iv one end the ice forms an exact representation of a large cascade as if a rushing stream with its spray had suddenly been frozen solid. De scending to the lower room the passage is (W0 feet in length, and by following down through tha ice you come to the uax ural outlet of the water. In all countries such caves have beeu found. So extensive is the ice cavern on iho peak of Teneriffe tha'-, it affords a permanent I source of supply, and even vessels ure loaric . with its ice. This ice is columnar in shape, and does not melt easily, and so can ba trans ported without great loss. Near the village of Stelitz*, in the Carpathian mountains, \ there is one of the largest ice caverns in the- I world, and, curiously enough, it freezes in the ! summer and melts in the winter. For in- I stance, in midsummer the roof is entirely cov ered with icicles, but iv whiter they disap pear, and by Christmas time the caveru is dry and warm compared to the outside world. Ice begins to form as soon as the spring open?. In some deep mines ice forms at certain pe riods. This is the case in some of the salt mines of the Ural mountains. Great cavities are formed iv the gypsum, and iv Tho winter they are filled with clear water, but iv tho | summer they are frozen solid. We have similar cases nearer home. In this state there ara several ice wells, and an iceciivshas been found at Dacorah, lowa. The "Many Oid Friends." [S.vi Francisco Call.] It was so long sinco I had met Gen. Han cock that I was prepared to receive new im pressions of him during the course of a pleas ant chat the other day. I did not, however. He is now, as he always has been to men, a constant surprise: h3 talks so very much better than I expected him to. He looks like a man meant for very big work, and cer tainly he has lived up to his looks, but such men seldom talk much or well. How ever. I am not going to discuss his powers as a conversationalist. I was only wondering if many people would have sus pected, as I did, that the general was indulg in some mild irony when he said to mo: "I have not been here in over a score of years, and am consequently surprised at the num ber of old friends who remember me." What made me skeptical of his sincerity was a sud den recollection of a conversation I had with Modjeska during her first appearance here in California. "I am made so pleased," said the madame, who had not then mastered our idom, "by the many old friends I haf here." "Old friends here?" I asked. "Yes. Only this day a card is nent to my apartment; the name is a Polish one; I say the gentleman may present himself. Well he did, and he say to me, 'Madame, I am de lighted to salute you, for I claim the honor of an old acquaintance.' 'With me? I say, 'but one is so s'.upid, for I cannot recall where I haf meet you.' 'No, madame,' he say, 'not so great an honor as that; but my father, forty years ago, he make the brick of which your father build his house in War saw."' After a pause Modjeska added to me, with her charming naivete: "It is pleasant, is it not? But forty years is so long for one to remember who is not yet 40." Knott'n Strategy. [Arkansaw Traveler.] Proctor Knott, governor of Kentucky, is a great story teller. Several days ago an old feilow, whose son was sentenced to be hanged, called on Gov. Knott, aud begged for the commutation of the sentence. "Sit down," said the governor; "want a commu tation, eh? That reminds me of something that occurred in Missouri when I was a young man. An old man's son, you sice, had stolen a watermelon from a marketer's wagon, and his father decided to whip him. Well, the boy figured around awhile and finally gave his father half the fruit as a compromise. You have heard of old Maj. Wittleson, haven't you? I was out to his house one day not long ago—" "Governor, I am in a hurry. My son is to be hanged to-morrow, and un less I can do something to-day he will be lost." "Sit down and let me tell you." And the governor told a story that made the old fellow laugh so that he got up, slapped Proc tor on the shoulder, and went away, having forgotten the mission which had takea him to the executive chamber. 31r. jttiaihe's sous. [Washington Cor. Springfield Republican.] Mr. Blame furnisnes his manuscript so slowly that his publishers are complaining about it. Politics and the impulses of a se cret ambition are interfering with it The story reaches here from his Norwich publish ers that they had to give him §75,000 as a bonus and 15 cents on every set sold. As they have already orders for 100,000 sets, Blame's profits will run quite high. Blame was in very poor health after he left Arthur's cabi net. His physician here and Dr. Hammond, of New York, told him that he must either go to Europe in good company for a year or two or else get some absorbing but not exciting occupation for his mind. He did not want to go to Europe, and while he was puzzling over something to do he went one day to the con gressional library. While there his eye fell on "Benton's Thirty Years' View." Ho says it came over him like a flash that it would be delightful work to put his twenty years' experience on paper, and he saw that the problem of an occupation had been solved. That explains the cause of Blame's journey into the sea of literature. How to Slake a Bed. [Philadelphia Press.] ■ Let every bed maker, as soon as all the covers are spread, turn down the upper sheet, and all above it, leaving a generous margin below the bolster. Some people, you know, put all the covers straight up to the top and lay the bolster upon them, so that when bedtime comes the bed must be rearranged at the head. Boys don't like this way, and perhaps some other folks don't, either. It is the custom to pile two big, square pillows on the top of the bolster, and then put on two pillow-shams, and; then, sometimes, or perhaps before the pillow-shams, a sheet-sham. This .is .setting a trap for the unwary. Only a remarkably careful woman is," equal to the task of getting off all the 'finery' prop ;rly. . Why not almost, if not altoge her, Polish shams of all kinds? Why v.jt hon estly take off the big square pillows and supyly every bed with a comfortable bolster to take the place of pillows? If you like adornment, embroider or decorate the slips and sheets themselves without any make-be lieve. Silk, lace and the like seem out of place on a bed, which should suggest repose. Imagine a big boy with boots on flinging him self into the midst of a fairy creation of pink satin and torchon! Let the beds be what they look like, and" let them look like what they are—real resting-places. ,' ■.'..'■■ Arkansaw Traveler: As a rule wimmin Is . more truthful den men. _, Eve told de '\ truth,*; • font-..

The Story of a Factory That Cover* an Entire Block in lew York City. ir _ ■- £<;«;.;- ; [New, York Sun.} Tr-T ~~'. You see that large factory? It covers the entire block. Half a million of monsy wouldn't buy it. Well, it was built by a lit tle piece of cord not more than six inches j long." Here the spsaker paused and scru [ tinized, the reporter's countenance for indica j tions of incredulity, not to say astonishment But the narrator was talking to a man who, since the introduction of the telephone, has made it a point of principle to be ready for anything and to believe all that he hears. The speaker added;, ;.""" '■ £? "Eight years' ago there lived on the west side ; in the third story of a cheap tenement, down near the North river, a poor mechanic, who was kept poor because he had a passion for inventing; it amounted to a passion. He j didn't drink and didn't travel with the poli ticians, and . all who knew his family wond ered why they should be .so poor. Time i passe. on, an i still the man was poor. But j at last he perfected an invention—the sim plest thing on earth—and with his patent in his hand he went down town one day, and called for the head of a house whose check was current for five figures anywhere in 'the street.'- The inventor offered to sell two thirds of his patent for §20.000 if the bouse would bind itself to put $100,000 into factor ies for producing the littk thing that he had invented. The firm signed papers in less than an hour from the time of hearing the pro posal, and in another hour the inventor had converted the firm's check for §20,000 into greenbacks. Lots were bought and a factory was erected. The business speedily grew to gigantic proportions, and at len-jth the firm acquired all the rest of the block, and cov ered it with brick and mortar, and now the inventor is able to associate with the million aires. The little glove' fastener— a piece of cord about six inches long "and a dozen little metal hooks or buttons—is the thing that was invented. • "So much for one man who was concerned in gloves. Others have made fortunes out of them and lost the money in other enterprises. I recall a casa of a merchant whose net profit on gloves was $13,000 a year. Some of New Yorkers who sent their money down to the gold belt of Georgia about two years ago got his ear before they had lost $75,030,' and he took the gold-mining fever. Off to Georgia he posted. Yes, there was gold in the hills of the Empire state of the south. He returned to New York and sold out his business and back to Georgia he went. And there he is delving iv Georgia mud and wishing himself back at his button' business in New York city."' "-• ■ . ; TJie Army 3luli>. <*>kl^| ["Army Life," by A. 0. Marshall.] The train we came with from Pilot Knob this time is made up of raw mules that have never before been bitched to army wagons. It has been fun alive to sea the teamsters at tempt to drive the stubborn, unbroken animals. At first it was a continual runaway t irougß the entire line. But beiDg in the woods all the time, the only result would be that the ponderous army wagon would in a moment be caught upon a tree and then the mules would become entangled together ana tumble in a heap. The thing to do now was to entangle tha huge pile of mules. • Let im agination picture the scene. Sometimes in a fierce run a small tree would be bent over by the force with which the mules would strike i i and then regaining its strength would straighten up, and thus frequently a team of the smaller mules would be found hanging up in a tree. An army team consists of six mules. The two largest ones being the wheel mules and the smallest two tbe lead mules. The entire team is driven by a single line running up to the bridle of the right lead mule. A steady pull on the line means that the lead mule i 3 to turn to the left, quick jerks tell him to turn to the right. It is wonderful how soon a raw mule can be taught to obey this awk ward mode of indicating to him which way he is to go. Vfith this single line the driver riding one of the wheel mules guides' his team of, six through many of the most diffi cult anil dangerousi places. The army mule , occupies a place that no other animal could so well fill. His life in the army shows that the mule has never been fully appreciated In reputation a mule is concentrated stub bornness and obstinacy. In reality he is generally docile, faithful and tireless. Even when running away a mule team never gets wildly crazy as horses often do. They never knock their own brains out against a tree or stone wall. Unless it is raw mules that have never learned to pull a wagon, like those we were driving on this trip, a runaway' mule team will only go so far as it can have a safe place to run in. Of the hundreds .of times that 1 have known of a team of six mules escaping from their drivers and starting on a run. I have not seen any that would run any farther than where they could find an open read. Six horses in the same condition would become so frightened, that the wagon would be broken to pieces and some of the horses killed. The mule as an army mule is a suc cess. The Paris "Figaro." [Paris Cor. Atlanta Constitution.] The Figaro of Paris is a mighty power on the continent of Europe. Its earlier years were years of struggle and poverty, but its profits last year were over $500,000 No journal has a bolder, more talented editorial staff, and no paper is more widely quoted, praised and blamed. Mr. De Villemes3ant, a born journalist, was the founder of The Figaro. For a long time he was the editor in-chief, head reporter, and business manager of his journal. When he died this work was parceled out among three men, Magnard, Perivler, and Dodays. To these three men De Villemessant said on his dying bed: "Always make up the paper as though you knew I was going to read it the next morning." The placing of this triumvirate at the head of The Figaro was a wbe selection. Magnard originated the piquant epitome headed "Paris from Day to Day"—a column made up of many articles condensed from the newspapers of the pre ceeding day. Each paragraph is short, terse, and to the point—the quintessence of com mon sense and condensation. Magnard's leaders are signed "F. M.," and never exceed forty lines of long primer. This phenomenal journalist is a man of the size and build of Gen. Grant, and is apparently about 44 years of age. He is highly educated, a severe judge of "copy," and is withal a very pleasant gen tleman. The staff of editorial writers is quite numerous. One of the writers, M. Wolff, earns as much as $15,000 a year. He is the dramatic critic. On this journals reporters receive from 6to 20 cents a line. The editorial rooms are fitted up with every luxury and convenience, embracing fencing-rooms, card tables, etc. An American would not con lider The Figaro a great newspaper, but it certainly displays more enterprise in the collection of news than any other journal in Europe. It goes everywhere, and is read with as much pleasure on our Pacific coast, in South America, at the Cape of Good Hope, in short all over the civilized world, as it is the Parisian cafes. It is without ex ception, the most cosmopolitan journal in existence. "A Phenomenal Window Pane." [New York Bulletin.] It is seldom that so many annoying errors creep into a brief paragraph as spoiled a Bulletin item under this head a day or two ago.

Prom a Louisville Bar-Keeper to a Bonanza King. Luck in California and Consolidated Virginia— Wooing and Win ning a Charming Widow. [Louisville Courier-Journal] Among the numbers of men who have leaped from comparative poverty and ob scurity in this country, in the past half cen tury, none stand out more prominently than John W. Mackey, the California millionaire, at present living in Paris. Although much has been written and said about him, as a matter of course, but few persons are ac quainted with his early life, and the fact that he was at one time a resident of this city has never been made public. As a reporter was passing down Main street yesterday, a gentle man standing at the corner of Twelfth street, remarked: "You see that building over there? 1' pointing to the house on the north west corner of Twelfth and Main. Upon the reporter's replying in the affirmative, he con tinued : (il suppose it would surprise a num ber of persons to know that Mackey once lived there, and kept a saloon. The story is not generally known, as he was not a man of wide acquaintance, and when he left the city all thought of him died out. Of those who used to take drinks from his hands across the counter, but few recognize him in his new sphere. BEHIND THE BAR. "Along about 1!>45, Mackey came to this city in company with one or two others in search of employment. He was a young man, strong, active and willing to work at almost anything which would afford him a good living. An old two-story frame build ing stood at the corner over there, and the front room had been used as a saloon. The proprietor e'osed up a few months before, however, and the building was left without a tenant. Mackey had some little money, and as the locution was a good one he resolved to start a bar-room there. He made a bargain with the proprietor and secured the place, opening up about a week later. The room and its fixtures would be in strong contrast with the fine saloons of the present day, with their gilded counters and fancy bars. The walls were covered with a simple coat of white paint and the counter was a long nar row one made out of pine boards. Behind it was a shelf on which sat some bottlej and glasses. His coming was not taken much notice of and none felt enough interest to in quire from whence he came or who he was. He was an energetic and industrious man, polite and attentive to his customers, and his short figure aud smiling face could be seen at all times behind the bar. He soon built up a very good trade, but he never ap peared satisfied. It was evident that he was not Intended for .such an avocation in lif _•, as he was restless and lika Micawber, con stantly waiting for something to turn up. OFF TO CALIFORNIA. "The long looked for day finally arrived, and he started for California, little expecting that such good fortunes as fall to hi 3 lot was awaiting him. In 1849 the gold fever was at its height, and every day emigrants were leaving for the Pacific coast, eagar to reap the harvest of gold which they confidently expected was waiting for them. Mackey was one of the first persons in this city to be afflicted with the fever, and he endeavored to induce a number of friends to go with him. A party of about twenty-five was finally made up, and he was one of tin leaders in it. He sold his property interests for a small sum, and that was the last heard of him until he jumped suddenly into the lap of fortune. HIS CAREER. "I was," said the gentleman, "in California at the time of his arrival there, and watched his career M'h considerable interest. He had previous ;> known Flood and O'Brien and they were very fast friends. They were at that time keeping a saloon in San Francisco and Mackey worked in the mines. The two famous fields of wealth then were the Cali fornia and the Consolidated Virginia, and he worked in both of them. He was a very shrewd man, tolerably well educated, and had some lifct!e.knowledge of civil engineer ing. He clearly saw that money invested in the stock of either of these mines was sure to bring good results, and every dollar he could raise was invested in that way. At his in stance Flood and O'Brien went in with him, and the three purchased stock at S3 a share. Soon afterward it went up to $7, and gradu ally increased to $18. In this simple manner their fortunes were made, and almost before they knew it they were wealthy men. Mackey then lived in a frame house on Sutter street, and his figure became a familiar one to the frequenters of the mines. WINNING THE WIDOW. "He was not married then, but met the woman who became his wife soon afterward. This in itself is a little romance and illustrates his character. She was a widow when he be came acquainted with her, and was the daughter of Maj. Hungleford, of New Orleans. She married a doctor and moved to Nevada City, where the husband died some time afterwards. He was a poor man, and left his wife and child in rather destitute circumstances. Mackey heard of this some months later, and started a subscription for the widow's benefit, contributing liberally himself, and raising a neat little sum. This so touched the widow's heart that she called on him to thank him for his, kindness. She was young and pretty, with a childish face and winning ways, and captured Mackey's heart completely. His courtship was a quiet one, and of short duration, and soon &c pretty widow united her destiny with his. Mackey was then a rich man, but he kept widening his field of action, until in connec tion with Flood, O'Brien and Fair he estab lished the Nevada bank, and Louis McClaiD went from Baltimore to manage it. AND SINCE. "Since that time Mackey's career has been familiar to almost every, schoolboy. Un like the majority of men, however, he does not forget that he was once dependent him self, and his charity has been great. He is a member of the Catholic church, and estab lished an orphan asylum for the children of that denomination in Nevada City, which he still supports. He is always ready to give for charity's sake, and in addition is polite and courteous to everybody." Very Original Shares.

They cost 86 cents each, for which sum the landlord, who is a professional pig sticker, besides being a good cook, provides the shareholder on Mondays with a dish of fried bacon, on Wednesdays with roast pork, on Thursdays with fresh sausages of two kinds, on Fridays with sausages and sauer kraut, and ;on Saturdays with ham and Burgundy. ;" An Inspiring Decision* [Norristown Herald.] -^f:,' One of the questions decided by the recent union base ball convention was that "the pitcher must deliver balls with bis hand lower than the shoulder."
