The farewell reception and ball given by the Carleton club at Kreuzberger's hall last night was a remarkably pleasant affair. Following as closely as it did upon the farewell ball of the Lotus club, makes two con- spicious social events to mark the close of a very brilliant season in Logansport and.the young society people of th% city are to be complimented on the success attending these two notable functions. The ball last night was a full dress affair and many handsome costumes were noted in the gay assemblage.

We give Ih'e official figures of the above company and let the readers figure the vastou:- lay of money to equip a road as well equipped as is the Pennsylvania system. The equipments consist of engines, freight? cars, refrigerators, stock,, (lat, coal, gondolas and tanks, passenger coaches and cabooses. Number of engines, 1,973; total freight, 61,071 cars; cabooses, 879; passenger cars, 2,] 75; maintenance of way, 3,590 cars. Total equipment, 68,315 cars. The northwest system, total freight, 31,666; cabooses, 250; passenger, 354; maintenance of way, 94.' total equipment, 32,364.' The southwest system, total freight 11,478; cabooses, 275; passenger, 361; maintenance of way, 85. Total equipment, 12,157. The number of engines for the lines west of Pittsburg is not given. Grand total of the lines east and west of Pittsburgh, 112,836 cars. Miles of road operated east of Pittsburgh 3,765; west of Pittsburgh 997 6-10. I will let the interested reader figure how far the 1,973 engines would reach if placed end to end one track each engine averaging about forty feet. The length -of box cars,'stock, gondola, flats, cbal, ; refrigerator, cabooses 'and passenger coaches vary. / This is the largest equipped road in America and very interesting figures are contained in the official statement of rolling stock equipm'ent of the rail roads of our country. The Central rail road of N. J. and the D. & W. follow closely after the Pennsylvania rail road and several western road* have a surprisingly large rolling stock equipment. , Indianapolis News: The record of the Pennsylvania limited mail train (No. 7) has again been lowered and again it knocks out all previous time. Yesterday the train made the run from Columbus, O., to this city, IsS miles, in four hours and four minuter, making fifteen stops and a number of slow downs.The run to Bradford was made in two hpurs, and from Bradford to this city in two hours and four minutes. A 1 great deal of the distance was made at the rate of eighty miles an hour. ••We had an engine, ' said con. ductor Taylor proudly, "that could climb a tree." The next session of the Grand Division of the Order of Railway Conductors, which will be. held at St. Louis, will be an important one. Be sides the question of changing the headquarters from Cedar Rapids to some other city (possibly Indianpolis), important changes in the mutual ben- fit department will be made. Chas. Pindar is running the iteam shovel having given up his passenger run to do it. Geo. Hayes is running passenger in Mr. Pindar's place, this run George had quite a long time before Pindar returned to work last summer. Engineer Chas. Mitten is confined to his home most of the time now, his failing health caused him to give up the rail. The Vandalia to-day started a work train and s'.eara shovel on the South end.

" tol2 Tlie Bridge Coiitractfc JLcr, The county commissioners have awarded lo the,Massillion Bridge com- •pany the contract of building the two new bridges, one across Horuey creek at' Michigan avenue and the other arross Pipe creek, near Lewisb'urg. The total estimate of the Massillion was $2,277, the lowest of thirteen bids, the highest being placed by the Youngstown Bridge company at $2,907.85. The Horney creek, bridge is to be a 40 foot span to cost $568; tbe Pipe creek bridge to be a 105 foot span to cost $1,709. The contracts •for the stone work on. the two bridge* have been let to John E. Barnes and Jo.?. Wolf & Co., respectively. . Commendable. All claims not consistent with tbe high character of Syrup of Figs, are purposely avoided by the California Fig Syrup Company. It acts gently on the kidneys, liver and bowels, cleansing the system effectually, but it is not a cure-all and makes no pretensions that every bottle will not substantiate. IIorue Clipping.
