Washing- windows is another one of the things that Pearline( u0 ' e t«i h p) does best. With that, the .glass is never cloudy—is always clear and bright. Washing it is less trouble, of course—but that is the case with everything that is washed with Pearlirie. And about the sashes and the | frames; remember that Pearline, when it takes the dirt off, leaves the paint on. Haven't you noticed that certain imitations are not so particular about this ? 497 THE RAILROADS 5ome Figures That Show Scope of the Pennsylvania.

Some excellent mlvlcc is {riven on the subject, of tree pliiiitlus by the Indi;iu- npolU News. The lesson which every storm briii'jrs in the breakage of tho li'mbs ftC soft trees, says the News, Is that out- trees planting should include more 'hard trees. The true way of planting is to iiUoni;ue a hard wit.h a soft tree. The soft, which will grow rapidly, will in four or five years s:i l 'c bsrniMJal shade, and will hist for lif- tuen or t.wemy years, J^y thnt time tho luird tree is lurpc enough, to take its place and then tho soft tree should be cut rlowu.

Curtis writes as follows In live Chicago Record: in a recent number of Current Literature am English wi'Hiei 1 asserts that "the greatest: corporation on earth Is the London it Nortli- u'osw.'ru Railway (.•oiiiipany of Euglund, \\-lth its capital of l?r,05,000,00(i, a revenue of $(>,.">00 an hour, 2,300 engines iuid (10,000 employes iiiiil rqiHJM that cost ,*130,000 a mouth." "Everythiing rs made by the company," says the writer, "bridges, engines, rails carriages, wagons and au innumerable lot of other tilings, even the coal sentries and the wooden limbs for the injured of the staff.'' Thi? Northwestern Railway company is no doubt a gigantic Cfirporation lor a lilt.Ii> fOuutry like Rngland and worth bragging alxiut, but we luave gut a bigger one here in t:lu> United Rt.'Mes that might absorb it very easily. The IVua- sylvaiifci railroad, for example, has a capital of !?S57,OT5,t!00 a.ud 10,-lMO miles oil' track, which traverses tliii'tcen sta.tes. It has 3.7."(i locomotives, which consume 20,000 tons of coal a day and make runs equal to the distance around the globe every two hours. It has pn.sseii'gpr cars, 154,000 fn.'ight cars, ,T>0 Pulliu'an cars and 2-tl. other cars for constirnctiou and other purposes, making a total of 158,534 cars, which make a journey equal to the circumfureuce of the isirtli lii every til'ght minutes. These locomotives and cars, If placed upon a single track, would reach from New York to Chicago, or ten times the distance between, Philadelphia and New York. The rails of fbe Pennsylvania railroad, if laid end to eud, would encircle the globe and overlap about -1,000 milns. The -total annual revenue of the road Is $135,000,000 equal to $372,506 a day, amlj $15.525 every hour of the day and night—which Is two and a hurt times as much as that or the Northwestern of England. The North western bou^ts of 00,000 oir.ployes, but the Peunsylvnnhi com- pa.ny has over 100,000, who. wilh their families, make up a tota-! of about 500,000 persons dependent for their living \ipon the $00,000,000 it distributes In wages tveiy year.
