Street car conductors are bothered a good deal by persons who imagine that those in charge are mind readers and can tell simply by looking at one whether he wants tojbe in the car. If you belong to that class just take this pointer. When you desire to board a street car signify your intention by some visible sign; do it before the car gets half a block away and be sure you are on the street corner opposite the one from which the car approaches yoti.

What an invincible combination a woman and a baby-cab make! When it is seen coming in its resistless course dogs fly to shelter and there is a breathless suspense over all the landscape until the danger is past. A few days ago a determined-looking woman and a cab that bore a family resemblance to her were going east on Main street and met a blind man going west. The blind man couldn't get out of the way and the woman wouldn't. The cab went madly careering up the poor man's anatomy but by the time it reached his neck the woman saw that further daring would prove disastrous to her offspring so she desisted. What a beautiful thing is maternal affection.

If it hadn't been for that the poor man might now have been a hopeless cripple. Couldn't Keep Her Still. One of the conductors on a Niagara street car tells a good story about a pair of passengers he carried on his car recently. When the big trolley coach pulled up at Ferry street, a woman and a child boarded it. The woman was sharp featured, quick talking and looked as if she might belong to the woman's rights party or be a professional temperance lecturer at election time.

She crowded herself into a seat and looked daggers at a man with a dinner pail who sat next to her. She lifted her little girl into her lap and continued looking at the workingmaii, and he finally got up and gave his seat to the little girl. The conductor walked up to her and asked for her fare. She gave him a nickel. "You'll have to pay for the child too," said he.

"She is over "She is said she. "My little girl won't be 5 until next month." The face of the little girl was a puzzle for a moment. She was apparently 9 or 10 years old and very bright. She looked at her mother uncertainly a few minutes, and then burst in loud enough for everybody in the car to hear: "Mister. I'll be 9 my next birthday." "Shut up," demanded her mot! "Well, I guess I know how old I am," said the exasperating youngster, and the mother slowly opened her purse and handed out another 5 Express.

A Drawback. Little Roger had gone into the country for the first time, and his grandfather had taken him out to see the colt.

What often times appears at first inexplicable to man, when it is pas- sible to unfold it. is as clear to reason as a cloudless sky. But there are mysterious happenings every day, the reasons for which cannot be given.

The vision sometimes is defective and optical delusions take hold of us. When such is the caee we stand in awe of what seems a mystery. Again, when the health is good, the stomach sound and the brain clear, to see some tning out of the ordinary--a spectre for instance, man is the more stupified, wonders if there is such a thing as a ghost. Do you believe, dear reader, in ghosts? Well, a SUNDAY ADVOCATE embassa- dor in his rounds for news came across Mr. E.

D. Dew, the popular B. O. conductor, who related a singular experience that he Bnd another engineer named Pickerel who is now living in the west had one night near a station on the line called Concord. The circumstance occurred some time in the fifties.

Engineer Dew said that Pickerell was running first section and he second section of freight train known then as No. 75 from Zanesville east. After passing Concord, Pickerell was frightened nearly out of his senses. It was a Bright Moonlight night towards one o'clock in the morning. When the station mentioned above had passed these two sections Dew said he kept in sight of the red lights of first section and only lost sight of it when short curves were reached and that was only for a few minutes at a time.

Dew said when his train reached Cambridge Pickerell was standing at the rear end of his train, and he looked as White as a Sheet as he said to him. 'Dew, I ran over and killed a woman just this side of Concord. The engine struck her and I think the whole train ran over her." As he spoke these words he trembled like an aspen leaf. Ae then continued without waiting for a response from his friend: "The woman was tall and wore a calico dress and shawl and had a sun bonnet on her head. the center of track, and I not see her until my engine was right upon her.

I could not stop. To reveroe the engine would not help matters and I could do nothing I could scarcely move. I shut my and I seemed to hear the Flesh ami Boiif; Griml Tinder the wheels of my engine. I tried to speak, but couldn't My tiain sped along and I don't know how I reached Cambridge. "Why." remarked Dew, "I saw the same woman standing on the track near about the same place you mentioned and when my train approach ed she suddenly vanished I had, or at least I thought I had a clear vision of her.

"Good gracious!" ejaculated the heartbroken woman; "and here you've gone and prescribed medicine enough for five days." At a restaurant, a gentleman called for -'one orthographical error." "We we don't serve 'em, sir," said the waiter. "Then why do you have them on the bill of fare?" asked the patron.

UST TWENTY-nine years ago in the month of May'' is the -way Baggage Master Matt Rieerger began the following interesting bit of war experience to the SUNDAY ADVOCATE.

Mr. Riegger who has been ''weighed in the balance" of the Pennsylvania railroad company and 'not found wanting" for over a quarter of a century has many a thrilling story of war life but the one printed below in about his own words is well worth reading. "Yes, it was twenty-nine years ago just after the battle of Cloyd Mountain which had been waged all the afternoon. I was at that time a bugler but I had also to help carry off the dead and wounded from the field after each engagement. Jenkins of the Confederate army, had retreated to the Doublin depot of the Virginia and Tennessee railroad and we were carrying to the hospital the wounded from the burning woods.

I was returning after having taken Captain Channel (of Utica) to Cloyd's house and was about 300 yards from the woods. There I met Comrade George Krepp who now lives in Franklin's addition in this city. A minute later I saw a dozen Union cavalrymen approaching and realizing the danger of our remaining there surrounded by the rebels I called to Krepp to come on if he didn't want to be taken prisoner. At that time Morgan's men were not a quarter of a mile away. Krepp was tired after the long struggle and said, 'I don't care, I can't go any I threw him a 'good bye' then just as the cavalrymen dashed along.

I ailed to one asking if I might grab hold of His Horse's lail. Xo objection was made and away I flew at a rapid rate. We had gone but a little distance when the rebels began to fire at us The horses quickened their speed and I held to the tail which made rather rapid traveling on foot for me. The chase lasted several miles and the lorses did not stop until had passed MX of ground. I was exhan.sied by that time having carried a knapsack, a horn and besides, myself that I fell down almost dead at the end of the run.
