But, laying this aside, the company has not .sought advice from any of the leading business men, or had an Indianapolis attorney or enterprising citizen to work up a feeling in favor of the road. In speaking of this matter last evening, a railroad attorney, and one well informed as to the difficulties in getting into Indianapolis, remarked that the right thing ' for the I. L. & C, people to do was to'build to some point in North Indianapolis and then utilize the Belt road to reach some one of the roads now running into the Union station. This being a new -idea, a Journal , reporter had a talk with a general officer of the-Big Four, which .now, controls the Belt road from North Indianapolis to a connection with other roads coming in. from the West Side, as to the feasibility of the I, L. C. using., their tracks to get into Indianapkis. Said the official: "That is just what they want to do. Their line will'not be a competitor of ours, /or the present, at least, and naturally they will get. a. good deal of business from the Big Four in return for any business 1 the load might give the Big Four at Indianapolis, and I am very coufident-that a traffic agreement ic.ould be made between the two" companies Indiana, and this first dance given by them promises to be the success it deserves.to be.

The Paris postmen have lately had unu some attention paid to their condition _v v by the government, and it has brought ' ' their hard Jabors and many virtues to light In all there are 1,862 men working- on the seven daily distributions of the mail in the great capital. These are divided into three classes—one for old.Paris, one for the annexed districts ness men, the police, every class or persons use this handy little card, which rarely takes more than half an hour in*, transit from point to point.

They deliver a million,, prospectuses in a singie morning, froitt to end of Paris, xvith perfect ease. and one for printed matter. The whole which would not be oppressive to. the new company and would yield a reason able sum to the Big Four for such terminal faolities... If the officers o the Indianapolis, Logansport «£.'Chicago will look into, the matter they will find that itv*would cost .that company less per annum .to,-use.our tracks within the city limits, than would be the interest the .company would be obliged to pay on the sum of money which wou'd be required to purchase a right of way from the city limits to the union tracks. 1 ' city is divided into "sections," which in turn are subdivided into "quarters," each of which is served by four postmen. ,. P ;ln 's is the city par" excellence of "tips, 51 and the poor postmen, who get Only three hundred dollars salaries annually,, receive about the same sum in gratuities. They go after them with energy, and woe to the business house or private person who does not tip them well once a year. One man in each quarter is delegated to look after the etiennes, or New Year's gifts, and in some banks and rich mansions he often gets hundred dollar bills as gifts. ; In the commercial quarters of Paris alone more than five millions of registered letters were distributed last year, and every postman who delivered one received a two cent fee for it. This made quite a handsome addition to their salaries. The postmen distribute about 050,000,- Curo in Small Tiling*. The elderly woman is too apt to think that her appearance is not of any importance, and she neglects the small belongings of dress, wearing a badly-made- shoe, too often ill-fitting gloves, hand.- kerchief s that are neither fine nor pretty' and a neck-dressing that has nothing to recommend it, unless some one should approve of slovenliness. Young-women can afford to dress plainly, but it is the women who are elderly who have a, right to the elaborate and rich clothes. We are very apt to conclude that what, the mother is the daughter will be, and when a young girl elaborately gowned is seen with a mother dressed in the most dowdy fashion the conclusion is quickly reached that at her age the daughter will resemble the mother. This may be true or not, but it is injustice to the girl, and more -than wrong- • in the mother not to be as young- in. heart a-nd appearance as she possibly ca -n.—Ladies' Home Journal. from property holders through whose Hamilton Heights In Court .

The first delivery is before eight o'clock in the morning, and the last is at a quarter before ten at night. This is at every private house in the remotest quarter as well as in the business section.' The postmen are carried to their beats from the general and quarter post offices in huge omnibuses drawn by white stallions, which get over the ground at a tremendous rate. This hurrying 'bus, with the gaily uniformed postmen jumping out of it right and left as they reach their points of delivery, is one of the curious sights of Paris, The 'bus picks the men up when their beat is finished. The various sub-offices are connected with the central pneumatic dispatch station. In all of them, and in ci"-ar itores, one may buy the telegraph post card (open, 6 cents: closed, 10 cents), which will be sent by pneumatic tube o the point nearest its destination, and or the rest of the way by special messenger.
