 - One interest ing feature of the next census...
One interest ing feature of the next census would be the number of people who would rather die than wait till the next train or the next street car. It would cer-taiuly include one Trenhoft, who having brought his ticket at a New York elevated railroad station, started to rush past the ticket-box. As the conductor had given the signal for the train to start, the ticket-taker bad closed the gate to prevent the man's going through it. He hastily thrust the ticket into bis pocket, and, passing through the exit for pussengers, succeeded in reaching the train before the last ear had passed the station. "Hold on!"shouted the collector. "You have not deposited your ticket!" "Go back!" cried the rear brake-man. "You can't go on . this train!" A scene quickly followed. The man was found lying in the street nnconscions, with his head and body frightfully mangled. Whether he was pushed from the cars by thebrakeman who warned him not to board the train, whether he fell from tbe car after it had past the station, or whcfJier he foil from the station, the eoiouer was unable to decide.
