Eai( and West. Who Haw Seen It. The most Attractive feature at Ooney Island this summer to the children was the novel miniature railroad. They warmed about it. Their old time joys, the merry go rounds, roller coasters and shooting shoots, were uegleoted for this new amusement, which has interested their elders as well. Its success has beeu repeated at the Trausmississippi expo sition at Omaha, where it has been quite elaborately reproduced, and the western youngsters are reported to he reveling in its delights with as much zest as their eastern cousins. At Coney Island the railroad is laid out under the old iron pier, and the tracks are 500 feet long. The train traverses this distance at a speed of 20 miles an hour, and it is said that it has already covered many times over a dis tance equal to a journey to tho Klon dike goldfields. The engine, which is as complete in every detail as those drawing trains bearing hundreds of passengers, is only 25 iuches in height, about 18 inches wide and measures 4) feet from end to end. It is a substantial ufTuir, in spite of its diminutive appearance, for it weighs 430 The Plan kin w Movfiupit. iso buttle pbhrf have been more gen' erally uted than the flunking moTe ments intended to overwhelm one end of an opponent's fighting line, to the great and probably fatal weakening of the rest of hie position. The Confeder ates used these tactics in their most suc cessful buttles of the civil war, and it is worthy of uotico that their attacks which wero particularly daring and successful were almost invariably made against the Fed ral right wing. The troubles peculiar to that unlucky part of the northern armies began at I3ull Kuu, and continued, east and west, for over two years. At that battle the Federal right wing made u well planned movement uguinst the Confederate left. lioth tides fought well for new troops, "Stonewall" Jackson earning his battle name by tho renstuuee he and his men made to tho uttuck against them, but the Federals had gained ground and were still advancing, when fresh Con federate forces fell on the regiments at tho right end of their lino of battle. The historical stampede that followed was an unlortuuate hut perfectly nat ural result. "The Unlucky Kight Wing," by Gilbert Tompkins, in North American Jleview. Wet mid Damp, Tho Fudden application of a wet sheet is a stimulus to which the system re sponds with a reaction which sets up a pounds, draws a train of brisk circulation, resulting in a healthy eight or nine oars, each of which holds Poruirr rnrllNiiifnrr Irlvllsa. The privilege of freedom from arrest fujoyed by member of parliament is urn lined to civil mutter; but, since the ulolifioti of ini risumutnt for debt, this immunity has been shorn of most of its utility. Fomnrly it was a very useful privilege. Disraeli says of one of the characters in hi ttit novel, "Vivian Grey," that "the only way. to keep him out of the house .of correction was to get him into the house of commons." Parliament was then a convenient haven of refuse for "splendid paupers." In one case an F.nglihh member named Mills, who owed iX'H.ooo and for whose arrest a warrant was in the hands of the sheriff, avoided imprisonment by purchasing a srut for one of the old "rotten boroughs" in 1807 for the sum of 1,000. In another casoan Irishman named Uourke was confined in the King's liench prison about TO years ago in execution for a considerable debt. Hi friends got him elected for an Irish constituency, but he never entered tho house. On his release after election he fled to tho continent and remained there. Again in 1825 thu year before Dis raeli published "Vivian Grey," a man who was in prison for debt was returned for Uererley, a small English borough, and was forthwith released on a war rant issued by Mr. Speaker. It was a case in real lifo of from the house of correction to the house of commons.

In addition to this, it is probable that fomo of the evil "humors" of the body may bo dissolved out through the pores of tho skin. All this is healthy, provided the pys- tem can withstand the shock and the heat in kept in by blankets outside the sheet. In tho case of damp sheets, how ever, there is no stimulus, and tho body merely loses heat in absorbing the mois ture. This loss contracts the surface vessels and drives an excess of blood back upon the internal organs. Added to this dis turbance of the blood circulation there is also a congestion of the lubricating fluids of tho surface muscles and joints, which produces stillness and in serious cases rheumatism, complicated through the other causes with fever.

The little train at Coney Islaud starts on eacn journey laden with delighted children, some of whom shed tears of grief when, at the end of their journey, they are removed from the train. To the children a ride on tho train is like a glimpse of fairyland, and they never tire of inspecting tho tiuy cuiiue which pulls such a heavy load. "Grown up folks" also ride on the little train. One day two persons whose combined weight amounted to 4 SO pound? occu pied one of the cars during a trip and seemed to greatly enjoy their rido on the smallest railroad in the world.

In a family that has recently been in creased by a very small and hungry taoy is a little girl, to whom the new brother is a constant source of enter taiument and wonder. Tho other night baby was lying alone in the cradle while the rest of the family were at dinner in an adjoining room. Suddenly the baby began to smack its wee lips to gether so loudly that the sounds were heard at the table "Is tho baby asleep?" asked the father.
