MILEAGE BOOKS. ModifledtFeatures'of The New Interchangeable Mileage Ticket. Mr. E.A. Ford, Gcne>rfl£Paeeengcr.&geni of the PeciDsylvdnia nnd Vandalla Lioes, fends out the following infoi nsation regarding- t>>e modified features of the Cectral Passenger Association's Interchangeable one thousand jnlle ticket: The most important modifications are ID the rule as to sluaini? the mileaire itrlo and ISSUER the exchange ticket;. Ur der ihe new rule, the owner of ;«n intorchunfeable mileage ticket tear, at MB convenience and leisure, alirnbij name upon the .back of tie widest part of the mileage strip close to the last preceding <ietati:bajci;t.ibut;it must tie sUned wltb an Indelible pencil' r.wltn ink. or it will not be honored), and'cim leave hie ticket thus piBDCd with the AKcnt upon Ihis arrival Bt a station, or nend it to him'.by a messenger or by tie bold porter, or in some; other way. and upoo hlsrttiirn to tin.) station find his ex- changfr ticket ready £nij;his bat'Kuge checked : provided do has made such an advance arrangement. Therefore there need be no more delay at thu station or on ihe train in the use of the now than there was in using the old form of mileage t cket, which latter form was good only over the s> sum of roads, while the "interehargOBblo" is good over forty. The old form of encliunge;ticket is valid for continuous passage on'y on n certain train and date, while the ntworimodltted form will be good on any train, (except the "Limited"), on either the date of issue or the day following. This new form has been! simplified to render 1t easy of iseue and; to Ibettor accommodate travelers, find the r hiDdraDCes which accompanied the old form will therefore be, in the early future, entirely obliberated. Interline tickets from points on one Railway to points on another, via through car lines and via Junctions where connections are close and there are no transfers, are being prepared as faetasfoaiible. These ttok«>ts will bo issued in exchange for coupons from the Interonange- able mileage Ooket,ancl'.baggage will be chsck- cd through, H convenience which could not be enjoyed by the use of the old form of milepge ticket, The modifications:above alluded to have been approved by the Mileage Ticket Burean of the Cemral Passenger Association, and will be in effect on or before December 1st. or lust as soon as the now forms of exchange and interline tiolteis can buprinted and distributed among the thousands of agencies of the forty different railway comranies over whose lines the tickets are honored, and some Agents of the Pennsylvania Lints aave bef; already supplied with them. ::t is believed thai iheae amendments to a plan which is ready successful and popular, will place the uew interchangeable mileage ticket beyond the reach of reaiiOna,ble critk-isa.

The entire population of Minersvale and ihe surrounding country and adjacent towns was aroused. Thousands of men tramped over the hills in every direction, for miles. Cordons of searchers were systematically moved forward and back, sweeping "like a living brooin across every hill, through every hollow, over every plateau and valley. Not a cluster of bushes, not a hollow stump, not a stream or pool, well or shaft, not a barn or empty structure or any outbuilding was, for miles aroundi, left unexplored. During the day the hills were peopled more thickly than were the pleasant; parks of a populous city on a fair day. All night the hills were red with flres and aflame with glaring torches. Day and night, night and day, the search went on ancl the same ground svas covered repeatedly; but not a trace was discovered, not a clue was found. Hope died within the hearts of the searchers and their numbers began to decrease. Some were worn out physically; some retired because of their conviction that further search would be futile. Some alleged that the young lady had disappeared from reasons cf her own. Some did not doubt that the adjutant had her safely carried off. Some had no doubt that she had eloped with one of the adjutant's rivals. Some concluded that she had been captured by brigands who, in due time would demand a ransom. Many did not douht that tihe had been murdered and the body securely hidden. Then came rumors from many distant places that the young lady had been discovered at each. Sometimes she was reixnted to be on the stage; sometimes she was a milliner; sometimes a waiter in a dining room; sometimes a clerk; sometimes a saleswoman and once she was in a lunatic asylum. Many of these- rumors were very explicit. They burdened the telegraph wires and occupied much space in press reports. Many newspapers published unrecognizable pictures of Miss Stella b&sddn! the pictures of tJhe "discovered" and sornetiaies there really was a resemblance, which was usually found to be due to the skill of the engraver or the artist. All these rumors were investigated, for each really inspired a hope. Many ptiople have become suddenly crazed and it would not do to let any hope go by ungrasped. When the volunteer searchers abandoned hope and retired from the search the adjutant begged for a detachment of cavalry with which to renew the search and a detachment was detailed under his command for that purpose and again, in a careful and systematic manner he scoured the whole country, but with no new results. "When, in the regular course of their march they came to the abode of John the Baptist, they found him at his door with a pitcher of water just brought from the adjacent spring-, and the adjutant said: "Have you seen or heard anything of tie young lady who ia lost among the hills?" "You seek the virgin? The time ia at Ivand! 'Prepare ye the way of the Lore!; make his path, straight;' 'I indeed, baptize you with water, but one ccmeth after me who is mightier than I, the latchet of whose shoe I am not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Ghost!" •T>o you see all these people? They are looking for a young lady who is lost. Old man, pull your wits together a.nd try to remember if you have seen her. 11 "Yes, Yes; the virgin! Ye seek the virgin, but your time is not yet! 1 The time: is ripe! There be some standing here which shall not taste death till they see the Son of Man coming in his glory; for he shall come in the clouds of hsoven and all his holy angels with him! Ye scribes and pharisees, hypocrites! Oh, ye generation of vipers! Who hath warned you to flee from the \vra::h to come?" "It is useless! He would not remember, if he had seen her a,u hour ago." The thick walled hut with its stone root and mailed door wa.s left to its insaine proprietor and the searchers went onward over the hills, anxiously continuing a hopeless search. For a full week the adjutant and his detachment went fruitlessly up and down among the hills, scanning their summits and scouring their bases. Then the troops were ordered back to camp and the search for the lost Stella Zenith was ended and her disappearance was added to the great catalogue o£ unsolvable mysteries. XVIII. TOM COTKE .uAKES A TRADE. Tom Coyne was a Free-born American Bov. His parents lived nert; door to the Zeniths and naturally e:cough Torn lived there also. O<iire a<; narsu-. auy me youag maies of tne Xenith household entertained many decided opinions concerning the average Freeborn American Boy; and the concensus of opinion among the Misses Zenith was antagonistic to the Free-born American Boy and they sometimes expressed their respective opinion to Tom personally in language as vigorous, emphatic and unmistakable as custom permits the Free-born American Maiden to make use of. Indeed, there is no doubt that they sometimes sai»tched the permission of custom to its utmost limits and ceased to stretch thai permission with some reluctance, leelins that justice D&a not tieen done in u.o case; perhaps even, feeling that justice is unfair and tyrranical when she forbids young ladies to employ all of the resources of languaga concerning the Free-born American Bcyl Some days after the search for Miss Stella was abandoned Tom Coyne entered the parental parlor where his mother was chatting with a neighbor. His mein was that of a conqueror oT cations who fully appreciated his own importance to histonans. ••.N'ow, that's what i call a bargain!" he said, displaying a flint-lock musket of the oldest pattern extant. The stock was elum.-y, tee barrel of amazing length, and the calibre great enough to carry a peach. But it was a gun and that satisfied Tom. For its oddities, its deformities, he carerl nothing; his boyish ambition had been to own a gun; this was a gun; he owned this gun; therefore he was hag>- py. "Tom! Where in the world did you gut that?" his r:. other asked in a dis;- couroging tone that was lost on Tom. "It's mine." "Where did ynj get it?" "Traded for it." "What did you trade for it'.'" "Brownie." "Oh, Torn.' You poor foolish uoy'. That old gun is net worth fifty cents and the calf is worth five or six dollars! Your father will make you undo that trade." "You tell him to r.ot? I'd rather have this gun 'n a whole drove of cs.lves! 'N it won't eat nuthiir 'n it won't cost nuthin' 'n it will kill rabbits like gosh! We i.-in eat rabbits 'n I'll see that it kills plenty of 'em, you b(it! 'N I'll have more fun with this gun in a nour than I could ever have with Brownie! A feller can play with a gun an' enjoy life but no feller with good sense can play with a calf 'n have run!" "I'm sorry to disappoint you, my boy, but it is a foolish trade." "Well, mayn't I keep it to-day?" "You may keep it till your father comes home and then he may do as he pleases." " 'N you make him let me keep it, Ma; anyway I'll go huntin' now; I've got powder 'n shot." He stuffed his pockets full of old newspapers for wadding and proceeded to load the piece. The gun was so long that he had to thrust the butt several feel to the rear before the muzzle was lowered within blVlfeach so that he could pour into it the tremendous charge of powder that he held in his palm. Having deposited the powder in the barrel he stood the piece erect and rattled the butt on the floor to settle the charge into the chamber. Finding that he could not, owing to the altitude of the muzzle, keep the gun perpendicular while he drove the wadding home, he mounted an upholstered chair and started a roll of paper down the long bore. Then a new aifiiculty was encountered; the rammer could not be drawn without inclining tne gun, the length of the gun added to the length oi: the rammer exceeding the height of the ceiling; and Tom had an idea that: the powder must be kept level in the chamber or something would happen! Therefore the gnn must not be inclined until the wadding was packed upon the pawder. Climbing down from the chair he went to the porch. <md stood the gun on. the ground, so that there was only a cloud for the rammer to penetrate. Having rammed the wad home with a vigorous and willing arm Tom sent a handful of shot rattling down upon it; and after the leaden pellets he sent another section of newspaper. Throw- Ing the gun across his left arm he proceeded to prime it by pouring powder tato the pan which he uncovered for that purpose. Captai.n Zenith was sitting on his own porch reading tha Scranton Republican and Tom's prim- Lag movement brought him into range and he cried: "Tom! Don't point that thing this way!" "Beg your pardon, Captain, I didn't notice any on-e!" a.ad the gun was shifted with the muzzle toward tha parlor window, bringing the sporto- man's mother into ]-ange. "What are you going to shoot, Tom?' Captain Zenith inquired, "rebels, deserters or a provost marshal?" '•Rabbits! 'n you bet I'll kill a drove of 'em! I know where they're thicker 'n hens teetb!" "If you kill for market you may bring me two brace." "How much '11 you give?" "Market price." "All right, I don't know how much that is, but I'll find out 'f you don't .imow. 'N say, Captain Zenith, I've just traded Brownie for this gun 'n Ma says 't Pap won't lemme keep it. Won't p-ou tell Pap 't he oughtta lemme keep it?" "Yes, Tom, I'll talk it over with him and help you if I can." "Thank you Captain, You're a brick if yer girls is sassy. I tell you tnem girls of yours is terrors 'n I don't see how you get along livin' in the same house with 'em. It's bad enough livin' next door. Carrie isn't so bad, but I wish a bushel that Mollie was a boy for about a nour! I'd enjoy the occasion by givin' her a mighty good lick- in' to last her for life an' make her respect boys as long as she lives. Now Stell was different! She'd give a feller fits fer tricks, but she'd treat him nice, too; 'n she'd help a feller over a fence 'f she did scold him fer clim'in'. I always liked her 'n I always liked you, too, Captain, 'n I'm awful sorry Stell'a lost." "Thank you, Tom," the Captain answered with wars in. his eyes, and in tones that told of am aching heart. Tom proudly ahocild«red his artillery and took up his march of happiness to th-e scene of anticipaiad conquest and glorious slaughter. The AR* of Athletics. "How our opinions change:" said the bright woman. "It used to be considered eminently proper to be the victim of consumption, but now we run from .it as if it were the plague.''

THE NEW STAY. ALFALFA BY IRRIGATION, Dovtc* of Fsjis Corset Maker* to Mold a Human Hoar Glass. Parhi corset matere have given us a. new device for the destruction of. \ health and for to* distortion, of a i woman's figure. R Is disguised nnder , the name of "the new stay." One would naturally suppose that the word "stay" was intended to suggest a support. Nothing can b« further from the real effect of the so-called new corset, which is one of the most Ingenious devices for producing an abnormal and most hideously ugly waist of th« slightest proportions y«t invented. THE HUMAN HOUR GLASS. The modern woman, when she is laced in her new-fangled corset, is a. caricature upon the form her creator vouchsafed her. Since the days of the early Greeks there has ahvays been a disposition for women to tighten themselves about the waist-line. The Greek matrons were censured for tightening their girdles, but the Greek waist of the average woman measured about twenty-eight inches. This is very near the natural and con-eft size. The new corset is constructed with the intention of making a --voman's wai&t smaller than it ever has been before. It stands to reason that if the waist is laced in beyond its natural size, the bust and the stomach must find a place elsewhere, and the result, of course, is to force the bust up out of all lines of grace, and on the other hand, to produce a pressure downward on the stomach and abdomen ia almost certain to induce internal troubles, f The modern corset has always had great capacities in this line. The n«w corset is merely a.n exaggeration in its defects of the old one, and will hold its victim in a vioe-lik« grasp just about that portion oJ her body where she should have the greatest freedom. The new corset will find favor, and it will be accountable for more red noses, bad headaches, atacks of congestion and general destruction of the beauty of, womanhood than any agent hitherto devised. Laced in her new garment o£ torture I defy any living woman to take a full, deep breath—and upon full, deep breathing the health and beauty of each woman depends. Benefit* of » Vacation. "The ri»al purpose of vacation." said Old Chimes, for he thought he saw Mr A.ugi:r yawn, "is not. to rest tna miad or body; it is to create an uneon- , trollable desire to work; it is to revive; or strengthen friendships. For instance, I go away from the club early ia July, bored to death by the] members, from the president way down to the house committee. I wish to forget that Jawkins is in existence; I pray that I may never see Auger again; I loathe Dr. Juggermann's stories of operations for appendicitis; and I begin ro believe the statement of a French, alienist that idiots have peculiar aptitude for music. In a word I understand why Timon of Athena •withdrew abruptly from the 400 of his town, without giving notice to the society editor of the Sunday Bugle, Toward the middle of August I am inclined to like Jawkins, -and by September I shall write him a letter When I return to the city for good— for this is only the call of an afternoon —1 shall rush up to him and say, •How are you, old man; I'm delighted to see you.' I shall then ask Auger. to dine with me, and it is aot at all unlikely that I shall invite Jigger- mann."—Boston Journal. A Honeymoon At a Farmhoase. It is no longer fashionable for the bridal couples to go to large cities or on a trip to Europe for their wedding journey. The sentimental period must be spent in some country place, a way sid-e inn or in some quiet old town. A couple who desired to go to a country place near by advertised in a paper that is distributed well over the State for just what they would like in the war of an ideal resort for their honey- znvsfc Noi more than a week or ten days after the advertisement appeared they received a dozen or more answers. Previous to tie wedding the husband- to-be visited several of those whose letters road the most invitingly and selected tie place he Jiked the best. Ths four weeks they spent there were more like a. story book than a. reality. The rooms were large and airy, the table was exquisite In its cleanliness and the viands that were spread before them were delissously tempting, A horse and carriage were at. their disposal, the river not more than a mile away, and sceit-ery and loafing spots "were so plentiful tint a new one coold be found every day. Selection and Preparation of the Soil—Ir- rie»tiou Before Snedine. In a paper read before; the national farmers' congress by M. ,M. Goad ^of Freuiuiit, .N\'b., ami reported in Tbo Nebraska Funnel-, was givviian account of successful iiiiTbuds with alfalfa in a section \vhere. few if :u:y crops can be grown without artificial irrigation. Coaceruinj: soils .Mr. Giad said: Bench or sectiud bottom land is better than liommi laud, and sandy kv.na promotes its growth better than u clay sub- Foil. The most thorough preparation of the ground to reedvo the seed is necessary to obrain the best results. a:m! lor tliis purpose the plowing shoul'l 1".' done with a subsoil plow ami .he ^ronud carefully pulverized when uot too \ver, but iu a friable condition. Where the field is sheltered from -.he high winds the best results will be obtained by plowiua the ground in the fall. This, however, depends much npou the 1 tiar- acter of the soil. If the soil is very sandy, fall plowing will seriously injure it. It the subsoil has much clay ill it, fall plowiug is the best. Before seeding iu the spring the ground should be well irrigated aud as soon thereafter as possible graded to an even surface to facilitate irrigation. A failure ro grade rho> land to an even surface will double the labor of irrigating the tract. Before seeding the ground should be thoroughly harrowed, aud if uot sufficiently moist to cause the seed to germinate Quickly it should be irrigated until it is so. Then sow your seed broadcast, pintiug from 20 to 25 pounds to the acre, and harrow lightly. Irrigation before sowing the seed promotes an eqiwl growth of all the plants, which is to lie desired, as it results in producing a finer quality of hay. If the ground is very light and porous at sending, it is better to roll it one lime; otherwise I have fonud the. rolling immaterial. If the ground is well irrigated before seeding, it will contain sufficient moisture to insure growth of the plants until they become hufiick-utly large aud strong to withstand relieved irrigation : otherwise they n::ay perish for the want of moisture or be destroyed by an attempt to irrigate thy crnp ton soon after its germination. The most delicate and dangerous condition of Iho life of the plant is the !;rst month alter ic begins to appear above the ground. Irrigation during this time is liable to prove very injurious to the crop. By irrigating before seeding the plants will grow sufficiently large before they need more water so they may be safely watered. The best time to seed in our locality is from the 10th to the 15th of May. It should not be FOWLI iu any locality until all danger from hard frost is past. Flax aud Hand Woven Linen. It is said that the climate of Oregon is unusually favorable to the cultivation of flax of a very fine quality, the fiber being particularly long and lustrous. This is especially valuable for making band woven damask aud other textiles, and a number of enterprising women in that state have formed a stock company for the purpose of promoting both the culture and manufacture of flax. Tbe weaving of fine damasks upon hand looms has been re-established as a home industry in England, Germany and Sweden, and Bcral New Yorker says that it is likely to be encouraged in this country.

The editor of the Michigan Farmer recommends a farm signboard of: planed aud matched lumber surrounded by a molding, with the name of the farm and its owner painted JohnWSmith Ann Arbor, Mich.
