Before July l the Wabash will have an independent entrance into Qulncy^ Ills. The line has. been located, and it will require the building of but arteen miles oi road, easy of construction. The ticket receivers of the Pennsylvania lines state that the passenger business of tlielr lines is handsomely in excess thus far during the holidays of that ot the corresponding period of 1896. The Central passenger association has granted a rate of one cent a mile to the national encampment, G. A . R,, at Cincinnati, and also for the supreme meeting of the Koights of Pythias which will be held at Indianapolis next August. The gross earnings of eighty-five roads for the first week in December amounted to 17,466,558, an increase of »1,146,581, or 15.66 per cent as compared with the same week last year. Seventy-five roads report gross earnings for the second week nf the month, 18,164,754, an increase of $862,239 or 11,81 per cent. In aotlcipation of snow, and bad weather, tbe heaviest engines on the eastern division of the Wabash, ten wheelers, are being taken to the Ft Wayne shops and equipped with steam heat and Gould automatic couplers. In case it is found necessary to handle passeng;er trains with them, they will then be in readiness to couple on. The western passenger agents are now making their arrangements to handle the Alaska trade. The longer they look at this traffic from a distance, the larger it seems to appear to them, and now there in hardly western passenger man that does not expect the traiHc to amount to fully 200,000 people. Tae chances ate thai; a figure about one-half as large aa that will cover the number whc will go from points where the road: of the western passenger asuoclatioi will be given a show a,t the business XMAS HOLIDAY SUPPERS! -PRESENTS- Best Patterns!

When worked in the best tapestry crewel wool, It has the great advantage o.f being easily washed. It is best to have the design dr.iwn, as transferring the pattern is seldom satisfactory upon the rough surfacK. A set of chair backs, cushions and bedspreads has been worked with great effect. The only stitches required are simple stem stitch, which must be used in outlining the design, aud a darning stitch carried under the upper threads of the material fills in the pattern. In commeucin.. the vi-ork it is best to do all the darning of each leaf and petal before workin the ourliue in stem stitch, which completes rhe flower or leaf.

The flower; should be worked in their natural colors. Three or four shades are required for flowers aud for leaves. In the design the poppies are starlet, yellow and li lac, aud the leaves not too bright ; shade. When the work is finished, a good wide trimming of torchon lace makes it complete, whether for chair and sofa backs or table covers, etc. Decorative Hints. For ordinary mantels in country houses a flower supplement, like those given away by the art magazines, can be framed in a delicate narrow band o whitewood and then placed just under the shelf.

Or, if Ton Do, Try to Disbelieve Captain Barr Says. [Special Correspondence.] DETROIT, Dec. 28. — It is not likely that any one man by talking can stop the rush" to the Klondike districts -which is certaiu to come next spring, but -what one man can do toward that end Captain J. C. Barr evidently does cot intend to leave tmdoiie. Captain Barr, who is now visiting in this city, is transportation manager for the North American Trading and Transportation company. He returned in October last from a five years' sojourn in the Yukou river district, and emphatically advises everybody to stay away from there. In speaking of the routes thai; bave been planned out by study of the maps, especially one by way of the Mackenzie river and across the divide, where it is shown as ' only 40 miles wide, with no mountains, be says: "People who propose to RO that, way don't know what they are undertaking. The coasi; of Uaska has been surveyed, but the maps f the interior are all guesswork. The United States maps of the i'ukon coun- ry were made up largely on distances iven by myself, and I never measured ne of them. But even if it were only 0 miles across at the point indicated ind if the ground were level it is uot ikely that any one can cross there. It s boggy and overgrown with under- rush. The only practicable travel is by he water courses. In summer the water does not sink into the ground, which nly thaws a little way down, and in •whiter' there is no snow. It is too cold. loar frost collects^ur feet deep, but it s so light you caii't travel on it with nowshoes. The so called mounted po- icc are mounted in canoes. They can't ;et around otherwise. 'The mining is done in winter by milding bonfires to thaw the ground. A. man can thaw out with a cord of wood in 24 hours about two inches depth in a space (i feet by 8. Next day he goes two inches deeper, and when he gets down four or five feet he Lucius to ;uuuol to save heat, and so goes faster. Then tbe summer thaws destroy the winter's work. The finding of gold is all a matter of luck. "I have known men. who have been ;here 10 and 12 years and have, been uu- able to gel anything ahead because when ;hey find gold they have to spend it all for "food. Meu die of gradual starvation. [ saw two young men die of excitement after making their first strike because they were so weak from starvation that they couldn't stand the shock. There is gold there, of coarse, but it is purely a matter of chance whether a roan finds it or not, and the chances oi' death are greater." GEORGE MOELEY. D OLAN'S OPERA BOTJSK. WM. DOLAK, MASAQIB.

THE WILDS OF CHICAGO. Visitors to the Windy City Should Go Well Armed. [Special Correspondence.] CHICAGO, Dec. 28.— Perbups the oiie thins that luost excites the surprise of outsiders who com« to this city for a visit is the equanimity with which the people submit to highway robbery. It, is not that an occasional case occurs such as might shock any community, but that people are robbed with such regularity in public places that no one but the victims pays nuich attention to the facts. Even the newspapers that are supposed to be htmtins for .sensations do not report them at length or put scareheads over tbe accounts. In last Sunday's paper, for example, I find the accounts of three successful highway robberies aud one burglary with a murderous assault all crowded into a quarter of a column with a two line head. All three were on principal streets. One was in a crowd in front of the Dearborn station, when a woman was seized by a heavily built man, who exclaimed, "You utter a scream an* I put an end to your yelling right ill thi; crowd." This, according to the reporter, he said, "in an ordering tone." The •vromau struggled, but did not dare to cry out, and the robber, finding thai * J the struggle began to attract tbaatl:«n tion of passersby," gave her arm, snch a violent wrench us to break in. The woman fainted and was afterward taken to a hospital This robber, seizing her purse, .dashed through the crowd, aud disappeared in an .alley. It does not appear that either this case or ihat of a fire marshal who was dragged into an alleyway off State street and stabbed and robbed was reported to the police. Anyhow, no arrests are reported in either of the four cases,_and no special interest seems to be excited. It is difficult to understand the coolness of Chicago people under the circumstances and impossible to think of similar occurrences in other civilized cities being considered as everyday matters. D.

Stowe to a reception at a well known, house in Rf-tou where before the evening was- over the bostess drew me aside, guying, "V\"hy did yon never tell me that Mrs. Stowe was beautiful?" And indeed when I'observed her, in the full ardor of conversation, with her heightened color, her eyes shining and awake, But filli-d with great softness, her abundant, curling hair rippling naturally about her head and falling a little ftt the sides (as in the portrait by Bich- moudj, I quite agreed with my hostess. Kor was that the first time her beauty had been revealed to me, bnt she -wa» seldom seen to be beautiful by the great world, and the pleasure of this recognition was very great to those who loved her.
