Syrup” Judgr J. B. Hill, ofthe Superior Court, Walker county, Georgia, thinks enough of German Syrup to send us voluntarily a strong letter endorsing it. When men of rank and education thus use and recom mend an article, what they say is worth the attention of the public. It is above suspicion. ‘* I have used your German Syrup,” he says, “for my Coughs and Colds on the Throat and Lungs. I can recommend it for them as a first-class medicine.”— Take no substitute.

Such a table wae made by the ladles nf Girard, Kanaaa.and la now on exhibition In the woman's parlor of the Kansas state building at Jackaon park. It contains twenty-four kinds of native wood, u follows: Hard pine, soft pine, syca more, white birch, black walnut, white cherry, oak, hard maple, soft maple, butter nut, white ash. gray a*b, white elm, poplar, red cedar, yellow cedar, mulberry redbud, hols d’nrc, red elm.

Wrlglit, while In New York on a re cent trip, put up at a big Broadway hotel, where they have one of those door boy* at the entrance to ine dining-room with n memory that Is phenomenal. When Gen. Wrlglit went In to dlnucr upon bis arrival the boy took bis bat and put It In the rack along with n couple of hundred others, many of thorn seemingly exactly like It. About three-quarters of an hour later the general strolled out and uskod for his hat. Instead of picking over the en tire lot In the rack ns the general more than half expected he would, the boy selected the general's hat as though by Intuition and banded It to him. “Howrdld you know that was my liatl*’ asked (MU Wright, his curiosity aroused. “I Uldfrt know 'twas your hat, boss,” said the boy, “but I knowed hit was the liut you gimme.” —Memphis Appeal. STILL FIGHTING SMOKE. St. I.oals (letting Illd of an Old-Time Nuisance—Solidity of Western Banks. St. Louis, May 20. —The agitation against smoke has proved a great suc cess in St. Louis and it is no.v evi dent that consuming devices will be in use generally within a few months. Nearly two thoui-nnd citizens have joined the local Smoke Abatement As sociation and some of the worst of fenders are included in these. Tlio willingness expressed on nil hands to put in smoke-consuming devices is so groat, nnd so many are going to do the work this summer, thut by the time tho fall festivity season opem there will bo comparatively little smoko in the business sectiou of the city and one very unsatisfactory feature of most advertising cities wiil disappear entirely. The uction of the St. Louis banks in contributing some 82,000,000 in gold to ■ saint in restoring tho traditional hundred millions, nnd Iho ease with which ten times the amount could have been contributed had it beo n needed, has callca atteution to tho very conservative manner in which tho bauku of St. Louis aie run. Wliilo the bank clearings have been doub ling themselves tho number of banks has increased but slightly. Hence nearly nil the financial institutions are old established and the business they are transacting is of a most Erofltable character. Most of them ave been through no less than three periods of discouraging, financial de pression and havo weathered the storms without an effort. It Is many years since there was a run on a bank in St. Louis and such an event is really well nigh impossible. The Travelers’ Protective Associa tion, whose national president re sides in St. Louis, is arranging for a remarkable celebration in Chicago on June 10, after the holding of the Peoria convention. For all practical purposes June 10 will be T. P. A. day at the World s Fair, und several thou sand angels of commerce will be on hand on that occasion. Mr. Geo. S. McGrew, who has been national presi dent for several successive years, has definitely declined to serve again ow ing to the pressure of business engage ments, and one of the important events at the convention will be tho selection of his suoccssor. Last year there was u lad working in a florist’s shop here who thought ho was not getting on fast enough. It occured to him that inuny people of smnll means would ho willing to pay a trifle to havo small bouquets de livered to them every day for their dinner table. He spoke to his em ployer about it, and was sneered at. Ale got a friend to lend him enough money to send out soveral thousand circulars, choosing his names judi ciously, and enclosed postal cards in each circular for an answer. Ho got so many encouraging responses that he felt justified in plunging into busi ness for himself, and left his employer. Now, a littlo over twelve months since he scut out his first circulars, ho Is letting the contracts for a store and hot house which will cost him several thousand dollars. His idea was a good one, and he says that he sends out several hundred bouquets a day, charging from twenty-five cents to ten dollars apiece for them. The plans for tho free batli-liouscs which are to be built this spring in time to be used this summer have been completed by the architects of tho Board of Public Improvements. There will be three, one in South St. Louis, one in the center of the citj', and tho other in North St. Louis. The cost of the three is to be $135,000. They will not be put on the river, but will bo away fioru it tome distance, and this water will come from the city water works. Encouragement for the Feeblo.

Tho Wolvsrtna State Making an Attempt to Eellpse Iler Sisters —Lot's Wife Done In Salt —Michigan Kxpccts Much. )HE MICHIGAN exhibit at the World’s Fair is among the most in tero sting. The ; State building, a picture of which accompanies this article, was erected at a cost of 850,000. In addition to the building Michigan will have a logging T camp on exhibition, displaying the workings of one of the chief indus tries of the Wolverine .State, The State building is 101x144 feet in ground dimensions, and three stories high, with a tower containing two stories more. It is surrounded on three sides l»y an elevated piazza twelve feet wide, THE MICHIGAN STATE BUILDING. and fronts to the north and west. The first floor contains the ofllc.-s, men’s re ception and club rooms, a Indies’ par lor. reading und reclining rooms, toilet and check rooms; also u barber *hop, cigar and news stand, a post aflice, bureau of information, where •very Michigan visitor is expected to register, giving botii his home and Chicago addresses. The general re ception room is being finished and will be furnished bv Saginaw County at an expense of 8-1,000, and Muskegon County is doing the fame thing with the club-room, spending $3,000. The Indies' parlor aud reading-room have been decorated aud furnished by the leading society women of Grand Rapids at a cost of SO,OIO. The main corridor, SO feet long and 40 feet wide, has a large fireplucent one side, around which is placed a SI,OOO mantel fur nished by the Widdicomb Mnntci Com pany of Grand Rapids. There will also be fireplaces in the ladies’ parlor and the Saginaw and Muskegon rooms. The floors of the corridor and hallways are made of Michiguu tile,all the wood used in the building came from Michi gan, and most of the construction worlc was done by Michigan workmen. The interior finish of the first nnd second stories is in Michigan rod oak. When passing up the broad stairway leading to the second floor the visitor will be confronted at a half-way land ing by an elegant marble bust of Gen. Cass. On the second floor will be found a newspaper exhibit in a largo room fitted and furnished with chairs, tables, and other conveniences for the comfort and convenience of newspaper peop'.c. Tho exhibit will contain the last copy of every paper in the State printed prior to May 1, as well as subsequent copies of every paper giving an account of the open ing of the fair. On this floor is also a large assembly-room furnished with a pipe organ by Farrand & Volty of De troit. Here will be held the meetings, social gatherings, and banquets; and there is also a room for State exhibits, 40x70, in which the university nt Ann Arbor is mu king a natural history dis play. and where exhibits from the various State institutions will bo made in glass cases. A prospective map of the State, 12x14 feet in size nnd costing 815.000 is a feature of the show. Tho third floor will be devoted to sleeping rooms. Tho tower carries an illuminated clock having a six-foot dial. In the Mineral Department Mines Building a Michigan exhibit will be displayed in a pavillion made of stone, iron ore, copper,crystalized salt,silver, gold, granite, marble, verdo antique, and other specimens of mineral taken from the quarries and mines of Michi gan. One of the uniquo attractions inside this pavillion will be a biblical representation of Lot’s wife turned to a pillar of salt. There will also be a specimen of copper ore as it comes out of the mine, US per cent pure and weighing 10,C0i> pounds. The cost of this pavillion is estimated at $20,000. It will stand in the center of the build ing opposite Germany and England, and was constructed under the supervision of l’eter White, member of the board for Marquette, and Jay A. Hubbell of Houghton. In the Agricultural Building Michi gan has erected another fino booth on 2,000 square feet of space, in tho cen ter of which stands a Corinthan tem plo surrounded by a shield with the coat of arms of the State. The booth is filled with tho choicest collection of grains, grasses, and other products of the farms of the Wolverine State. In this collection the State Agricultural College is represented by a fine dis play. Vice-President E. H. Belding is m charge of this part of the show. At the Centennial Michigan captured BIS LOAD Or IDOB FOR THE MICHIGAN EXHIBIT. the medal for the beat chow of fruit, but the exhibit made there will be nothing in comparison with the one that will be made at Jackson Park this year. The State will have in Horti cultural Hall • large and varied dis play of winter applea, pears, canned fruite, jama, and jellies that are being kept in eotd storage. There will also be a ehow of wan models of every variety of finite, bmtss, and rege- jtojfngife Kinds of new fruit, each specimen in its fcason. Arrangements have been made to bring the shipments by boat across tho lake and have them arrive fresh every morning. This no gother State can do. As a result Michigan expects to tempt the mouths of visit or* with the most luscious berries, cherries, peaches, pears, plums, und apples that ever grew. in forestry the exhibit contains seventy-six varieties of wood and the different uses to which they may be put, and there are specimens in the rough as well as iu the various stages of manufacture. A tiue pavillion has been erected for this exhibit in the Forestry Building. In addition the State has an outdoor space just south of Machinery Hall and near the sawmill, where has been con structed a genuine lodging camp seventy feet long and twenty feet wide. It has'been the exact reproduction of the camps Michigan lumbermen live in, and the daily bill of fare, corn bread, pork, and beans, strong black coffee, etc., is the same ns they have in the woods. Besides the camp there is in the show the largest load of logs ever put on sleigh nnd drawn by a s’ngle span of horses. It contains 311,000 feet of lumber, weighs 115 tons, nnd was drawn a quarter of a mile dowij grade by a pair of horst s whose combined weight is 4,000 pounds. It required nine fiat ears to bring these logs to Chi qigo. They were cut and sent by Nester Bros, of iiarago, on the Sturgeon River. It was necessary to have eight car loads for the camp. There was a sleigh lond of logs half the size of this one nt the Centennial. It uttracted a great deal of attention Tliis one is expected to create a sensa tion. Near tho camp will be a log train of five ears and all about tho place specimens of the tools used by lumbermen from the opening of the first camp in Michigan down to the present time. AN HEIR APPARENT. A True I.lkcncnH of Prlni-ess Kalulnnl of Unwell. In tho heat of all the discussion re garding the proposed annexation of Hawaii the greatest interest lias cen tered in the young Princess Victoria lCaiulani. The picture of her which : we give is an excellent likeness, repro- j dueed from a copyright photograph by Elmer Chickoriug of Boston. The Princess is 17 years of age, and for four years lias been studying in Eng land to lit herself to be un intelligent ruler. Her favorite accomplishment is painting, in which she excels. She is ‘ also a good inusi cia n, inheriting ‘ her talent from her mother, Princess Likiliki, who was : l I'RINCKSS KAIUI.ANI. something of a composor. Princess 1 Kuiulnni expected to remain in Eng land till her eighteenth birthday, but the recent occurrences have altered that plan, nnd her stay will be determined by the action of tho Commission now investigating the case. The young girl has done her utmost in defense of her i rights, and seemingly she lias obtained | satisfactory assurances from the Exec utive at Washington. Aeronautic Skill. The number of a balloonist’s ascents docs not give the measure of his skill. Ills descents are the real tests. Says an aeronaut: "Tho balloon makes tho ascent for you, but you must arrange the descent and mukc it for yourself, lfyoulcavo it to the balloon, all the happy chances in life may not save you. It is possible that j-ou may not come down at all. I know a man who made two ascents and one descent. When ho was four miles high the bal ioon wnsstruck by lightning, and it aud p]l its contents were swept into space. For all I know, they are ut this day revolving in impalpable dust around the earth.” Such a statement is worth considering before taking very extended aerial journeys. Most of us would object to becoming star dust, and few are sufficiently brilliant. Hansom Cabs. Joseph Hansom, the inventor of tho Hansom cab, sold liis rights to n com- i pauy for $50,000, which he never re-J ceivcd. Ho appears to have been ! quite an unfortunate genius, for he j was an architect by profession, his j most important work being the old Birmingham Town Hall. The con tract, instead of benefiting him, drove him into bankruptcy, llansotn, who was born in 1803, lived till nearly 80 years of age, so that ho had the poor satisfaction of seeing how much tho people of London appreciated his in vention. The Largest English Farm. The honor of possessing the largest farm in England must be given to the owner of Withcall Farm, near Louth in Lincolnshire. We learn that the farm consists of tho whole parish of Withcall and seventy acres in Wclton le-Wold, and contains: Arable, 2,000 acres; plantations (about) 00 acres; total, 2,500 acres. There are sixty cot tages with gardens on the farm, all oc cupied by the farm laborers, ami all supplied with water from the works on the estate. A Novel Match. Two well-known Paris fencers—MM. Rose and Chevillard —have arranged a novel kind of match. The champions will run a race of 100 kilometers— sixty-two milas—on bicj'clettes, after which both fencers will jump from their machines and see whether their ride has impaired the cunning of their wrists. Foils will bo banded to the two athletes immediately after the velocipede race has been run, and % fencing match commenced. Queen Occupations. Perhaps the most curious occupation conceived by a woman is that of dinner taster. Bhs is a product of Parisian refinement as yet unknown in this country. She spends a part of each day in visiting dooms and tasting the dlshee intended for dinner. She sug gests improvements, and shows the •Mk new ways of jpraparinf dishes. SOMEWHERE BETWEEN.

The station at Swampy Corners was novor u picturesque spot, oven in tho bluo glow of tho s-.inniost Juno day; but on this chill October night, with the first snow flakes of tho ccason oddying in the slow, undecided way that first snowllakos hove, through tho gray air, and the tall hemlocks swaying this way and that in the raw wind, it looked especially dreary. Frally Elkton Bhuddcrod as she stood looking out of one of tho panes of glass clumsily inserted in tho long frnmo work byway of window. "No, Miriam,” she said, “you can't ff°” "But I’vo got to go!” said Miriam Mudgo. sympathetically compressing her lip 3 us she tightened tho straps of tho pared sho was fastening oua notch at a time. “And leave mo hero alone?” “Nobody won’t hurt you, I reckon,” said Miriam, a strong-featured woman of 40, with a bristling upper lip like a man’s. ••If you go,” said Emily, “I’ll go too!” "Not much,” composedly spolco Miriam; "thar ain’t room in Peto Muller’s buckboard for so much ns u eheot of paper artor mo an’ him’s in. Besides, wlmt'll your Uncle Absalom say when lie comos back and finds no body hero? Ef tho lire goes out, everything'll froezo stiff, and— Yes, l’oto, I’m a cornin’; thar ain't no need to stand there a-bellerin’ like a Texas steer! Good-byo, Emily! Oh, I for got!”—coming back and meehunieally lowering her voice, although there was no ono but the gray cut by the atovo to hear tho words. "Tho ticket money an’ two rolls o’ gold eaglos as the paymaster’s call for to inorrer in the noon train is in the red chest under your uncle’s bed. I reckoned it ’ud bo safer thar than in tho money drawer. Don't forget to givo it to him fust thing ho gets bade. ” “Forget!” echoed Emily, wringing | her hands in frantic desperation. "But 1 won’t bo left in charge of it! I I'll assume no such responsibility. I insist upon your taking it with you!” Tho remonstrance, however, came ; too Miriam bawled out some indistinct reply and tho next sound .Miss Elkton hoard was tho creaking of tho buckboard wagon as it turned 'the sharp curve below tho gleaming j lino of tho railway switches. “Sho’a gone,” cried Emily, clasp ing her hands liko tho tragic muse, "and left mo nlone with all thut money! And tho navvy camp only three miles up tho mountains, full of Italians and Chinese and the miners at Lake Lodi and tho whole neigh borhood infested with desperadoes! And Uncle Absalom not expected homo until 2 o'clock in the morning, and tho bolt broken off tho door, and tho key’s a misfit, and nothing but u I hook and staple between me and de struction! Oh, why didn't 1 stay in Rhode Island? What evil spirit pos ! sessed mo to come out here to Dako ta, where ono might ns well bo buried ' alive and done with it?” Emily Elkton sat down and cried heartily, rocking herself forward and back and sobbing out aloud, liko a child whoso slice of bread and treacle had boon taken away from it. And not until tho cumllo flared up, with un extra-sized "winding-sheet” wrapped around its wick and tlio eat rubbed itsolf persistently against her knee,did sho arouso to tho quadruple fact that puss wanted her supper, the drowns low, tho candlo needed snuff ing and thero was no sort of use in tears. Emily had come out Wost, partly hecutiso thero seemed nothing to do at homo and partly because Uncle Absalom had written that (.no of his nino niccos would come very humly for a houseaeopor at Swampy Cor ners. in tho state of Dakota, if sho could be apnrod. Tho latter sontenco was intended on his part for a sarcasm, but the Elkton family hud received It all in good faith und hold many u delibera tion beforo thoy consented to let otic of tho nino young birds flutter out of tho homo nest. And more especially sho had come I becauso sho had incidohtaliy learned I that Andrew Markham was ono of j tho engineors in charge of the naw ! lino of railway on tho other slopo of the mountain, which undertaking in volved tho navvy camp and tho great ! derricks and steam-drills and tho i gangs of slit-oyod Chincso and dark browod Italians. "Not that that signifies,” Emily had plausibly told herself. “But of course, it’s plonsant to bo somewhere within a hundred milo3 of an old acquaintance.” j Andrew Markham had boon to see hor twico and both timos sho had made up hor mind that tho far West was tho only place to live in. j "Ho expects to settlo hero,” sho thought, with a soft, pink color suf fusing lior fuco. "lie says ho has already bought a sunny slopo of land, where ho means to build a houso nnd bring a wife when ho can afford it. Ho thinks that life hero means twice what it does in the effete civilization of tho East.” But to-night, with tho darkness wrapping tho litt'e depot liko a blanket, and tho wind howling down tho mountain gorge. Miss Elkton would not at all liavo objected to some of that samo “offete civiliza tion.” J Alono in tho houso! During tho wnolo of her sojourn ut Swampy Cor ners such a thing Lad never hap- I pened to her before. Uncle Absalom had occasionally been absent, it was true, but Miriam Mudge was always thero to bear her company until his return. Now that a sudden summons from her father. ■ hurt in an accident in tho sawmill on I Ragged river, six miles bolow, had | called Miriam away, poor Emily was all in a flutter. True, the one train a day which stopped at tho station was not due until seven in the morning. The telegraph office was closed, and there was absolutely no care for her to as sume except to put another log of wood on the air-tight stove and go quietly to bed. But the very sense of solitude ap palled her. She shivered at the very oliok of the snowflakes against the window, the ereak of the boards ip the floor, the slow drip of tho water into the kitchen sink, where Uncle ▲Meat k«4 recently introduced the fcf»Hiui nlftvttortfl* W' - • connected by pipes with the spring in the spruce glen above. ••Why couldn't Miriam have stopped at one of the neighbors' houses and sent some one to keep mo company?” she repined. “Andrew nays thero are some nice girls ut Alraoiidslcy, down the mountain, und ho said ho'd i»ke to introduce mo to Marietta Mix, who teaches Sunday school in tho South Cleating. und docs tpyo-wr'.liug for the company on wcok days. I’m sorry, now, that I tossed my head, and put on airs, and said I did not j care to mingle in the society hcrea- ! bouts. I must have appoured hate ful enough. Gracious, what was 1 ; that?' 1 It was tho clock striking nine, and then Ktnlly remembered that sho had had no supper. Nervously glanoing around her, sho tip-toed to tho cup board, and took a glass of milk and a little bread and chcoso. As she re placed the tumbler on the shelf she heard footsteps on the frozen ground outsido. ••It's my imagination,” she said, after listening for n second “Hut I j won’t he frightened so. I will bo bravo.” .Sho took a hatchet, and i sallying forth, opened tho collar I door. “If any tme comes he’ll sail down thoro before ho cun get to the i door,” said she. And with two prodigious slashes of the hatchet she cut away the board path which led acro.-s a series of rug ged boulders to the railway platform. “There,” sho cried, hurrying back to tho inside warmth and brightness, as if a whole brigade of pursuers woro ut her hods, "that’s done. 1 feel safer now. But f must hang the lantern out before Undo Absalom comes back. I don't want him to full down and break his dear old neck!” .She had just, seated herself with a sigh of relief when something like a big firefly blazed on her vision fora brief second only: then it was gone. “A dark lantern!” she said to her self. “I arn sure now that I hoar tho sound of feet on tho platform. There are two or three people there —perhaps more. They havo learned that I am alone with all that money!” She clasped her hands over her e.vos, and shivered as sho heard a crash, a smothered exclamation, a suppressed buzz of voices, “Somoono has fallen down the cellar! Oh, how fortun ate it was I thought of that!” And now u low whisper came up through tho carelessly-joined boards of the floor. She could distinguish the words, “Hold on! Ho careful! Tho front door is fastened, for I tried it. You can all of you get down cellar, and como up that way." Emily’s heart gave an exultant jump. The cellar door, a mass of timber in which sho had the fullest confidence, was securely bolted. .She peered out into the stormy darkness. By the occassional ly displayed gleam of the lantern sho could see a hud dlod mass of figures creeping down tho collar steps. l.ast of all disappeared tho lantern itself, ono leisurely step at a time: and then, consummating a plan which sho had long been concocting in her mind, Emily made a dash out into the night, closed tho two divisions of the cellar doer with a bang, barred them, and fled panting into the house. By this time there was a brisk knocking at the cellar door, a crying out of, “Open the door! Let us in!” Hut to t'oeso calls Emily Elkton paid no heed, and it was only when a hand was suddenly laid on her shoulder from behind that she ut tered a piercing scream and lost all her presenco of mind. “Why, Emmy!” exclaimed a fumil iar voice. “Why, child, v.hat’s tho matter?” ‘•Oh, Uncle Absalom, how you frightened me! Oh. dear, tho cellar is full of burglars and robbers! Beach down your gun! Got tho hot-water kettle!” “Burglars, eh?” said Uncle Absa lom. “Bobbers? Why, wliar onyartli did they como from'.’ Sure ye ain't mistook, sissy? Anyhow, I'll bo ready for ’em.” He advanced towards tho cellar door with his loaded revolver in his hand. “Whoever ye be,” ho shouted, “tell us what your business is or take this! Don’t hold my arm, sissy! Thoro can't no more'n one at a time como up these ’cro cellar stairs, and I reckon I'm a match for that much, if I bo old an’ stitT!” To Emily’s infinite alarm lie un bolted tho cellar door and Hung it wide open. There, crowding on the narrow wooden steps, stood Andrew Mark ham, the Miss Alraondsleys, Leonidas Mix and sister Marietta, and Doctor ClllTo's two chubby daughters. ••We came,” paid Markham, rather shamefacedly, “to give Miss Elktou a birthday surprise. Wo aro sorry that ” "Walk in—walk in!” cried Undo Absalom, his face ono full moon of broad smiles. “No noed of bein’ sorry for nothin'. You’re nil wel come! How on earth did ye know it was Emmy’s twentieth birthday?” “Marietta has baked a cake.” said Leonidas,“and tho C’lifTo girls brought a jug of lent: nude, and it was broken when I tumbled down cellar, and—” ••Oh, that don’t matter none!” beamed Uncle Absalom. “We re aw ful pleased to see you—ain't wo, Emily?” In this auspicious manner began Emily Elkton’a first acquaintance with the young pooplc who wore des tined to be her lifelong neighbors. “Hut really,” sho said, half crying, half laughing, “I thought you wero all banditti.” ••It's my fault,” acknowledged hon est Marietta Mix. “I was determined that you should have a surprise. Andrew wasn’t half willing, but I in sisted. You sco, 1 didn't think there would over beany other way of get ting acquainted with you. Miss Klk ton. And wo knew that Andrew was so interested in you.” “Nonsonso!” cried Emily, blushing. “Is it nonsense, though!” retorted Marietta. Well, time will show.” And time did show. Six months afterward—but, after all, where is tho use of turning over the leaves of tho book of fate? Let all true lovers guess for themselves how tho matter ended. “But.” Emily acknowledged in her turn, “I never was so frightened in my life as at first and never so happy as 1 was at last.” And she uever returned to town life.—N.

Modern s. i cnee jyid skill has produced engines capable of running a hundred miles or moro an hour; Jt therefore only re mained necessary to find a perfectly level roadway free from sharp curves to make the running of really fast j trains not only possible, b it perfectly practicable and with the same regu larity and freedom from accident that characterizes the handling j of slower trains by firsts lass lines. I An engineer's ideal roadbed would be absolutely lev 1 and straight -the line of the Luke Shore and New York Con- | tral is tho nearest real; at on of these conditions to be f und in th s country, as is evidenced by the recent bicycle \ relay races from New York and I o- ] ton to Chicago, they having followed the line of these roads the entire dis- j tunce. This rouse was, therefore, the 1 natural selection as the one over wlii h the Exposition flyers should run. The | schedule of these trains has been ar- | ranged particularly to accommodate the large number of business me ! who have interests both in New Yorlc i and Chicago, and by taking advantage of this train can leave New York af.er ! the close of business ami be in Chiea o the next morning in lime for a full ] day's business there.
