THEY GET OVER GREAT DISTANCES ON SCHEDULE TIME. When They Can't Get Inside They Have the Best That the Exterior Affords, and Sometimes That Is Very Good, Though a Trifle Dangerous. "While trainmen are of one mind in regard to the annoyance which tramps cause the railroad companies they disagree about the methods of these individuals in "doing" the country. In spite of the strict rule of all railroads prohibiting tramps, these professional travelers get over the road somehow or other with astonishing rapidity. They have been known to come frcm San Francisco to New York m but a trifle longer time than it took Mr. Mackey on his record breaking trip. It is by no means certain that one of these nomads didn't accompany Mr. Mackey part of the way across the continent on the fast mail train. Tramps are partial to mail trains. The trucks are roomier than those of the ordinary coach or freight car. Whatever doubt there was about Mr. Mackey's beating the record there certainly wasn't any doubt that Mr. Tramp beat the railroad company. There are tramns and train ds. Manv a poor fellow who has spent his last cent and is out at the elbows wants to try bis luck in another part of the country, but he has no means of getting there except his heels. These will not carry him far without hunger staring him in the face. He slinks about some freightyard, and when a train is pulling out begs a trainman to carry him along a bit. He admits that he is a tramp, but he isn't; he's a beggar and a tenderfoot. There are others, who have just got their hand in, traveling from town to town, and when a trainman catches them stowed away in a box car they whine piteously and recount their sufferings or those of a sick family miles away wliich they are anxious to get to. HOW REAL TRAMPS ACT. These are no tramps," said a brake- man, "mere is nothing interesting about them and they are a nuisance. The professional tramp is a character, and sometimes you meet with one so slick that he deserves to beat his way. The real tramp makes no excuse when he is discovered. Nine times out of ten he makes a threat, and as a good many of them pro armed it is dangerous to meddle with them. For if there is a human being who might be expected to value his life cheaply it is a tramp rather than a burglar. How many times have I had a tramp snarl at me with a string of oaths and wind np by threatening to put a hole through me!" "Probably tramps will hang on to most anything, from the brakeshoe to the wheel box," suggested the reporter. "No," said a trainman of the Central Railroad of New Jersey. "Many people have erroneous ideas about the habits of tramps. Personally I never saw a tramp on a truck, but others say they have. Tramps generally pull for an empty box car, if there is one open. It is curious to see them search the yard over, inquire about the departure of trains and their destination and the stops they make along the way. Why, Saturday night, just before leaving for Phillipsburg, I went to search my tram for tramps, and I found an empty Fall Brook car full of them, right next to the train shed. They knew somehow that the car was going home, and that it went to the end of the journey. They always seem to want to go as far as possible. "These fellows set np a whining and begged me to let them go along. They all had eick families, or something just as bad, to go for, and one of them said he wanted to go to Phillipsburg to attend the funeral of his brother. I drove them all out. None of them was a professional. They didn't know one another, and they all scattered in different directions. REVENGE FOB ILL TREATMENT. Of course they will get into any car that is left open, and if there is anything eatabld they always help themselves. If there isn't an open car they will try to find a car of lumber. That is more exposed, but there are always some vacant nooks between the piles of boards, and they make very good bunks. When I was running on a Long Branch tram we had an experience with tramps at Mata- wan. "We picked up a car of lumber there. A gang of tramps had learned of its time of departure and that it was a through car, which just suited them. They always try to get a 'through sleep er,' like passengers who pay their way. One cf them, who had a wooden leg, they put on top of the lumber in plain sight, and then they appeared to go away. Of course the trainmen wouldn't put a de formed man off , and apparently he was the only one who was going along. But no sooner did the locomotive signal to start than the gang lit upon the lumber car like a swarm of bees. We went back and nulled them all out from the crev ices, and we got curses in return. 'The next night when a freight train came along the switch at Matawan was open, and the train smashed a lot of cars on a siaing. xne tramps were arouna later to see the results, and they asked the agent whether that was Porter's train. No, said the agent, and they were very sorry that they had made a mis take. "An empty box car or car of lumber lacking, they look for a car with a good sill at the end. But not many cars are built that way now. Where a car has ladders within reach of the bumpers tramps will stand on the bumpers and make a long journey sometimes in that position. But generally there is nothing to cling to at the end, and many a professional will stand between two cars with a foot on one bumper and the other foot on the other bumper. Of course this is reckless, for trains often break mtwo, and down goes the tramp and one section coes over him. Probably more tramps are killed in this way than any other." New 1 ork Sun.

Dr. Swayne & Son, Philadelphia. dly 1 Children Cry for Pitcher's Caiiorla: A Ghost Club. There are two things the mind of the last quarter of the Nineteenth century runs to clubs and ghosts. Putting the two together, some men of standing and intelligence in Crawfordsville, Ind., have formed a ghost club. It is not easy to become a member of this club, and its numbers do not increase rapidly for manifest reasons. Th e first qualification is that the candidate must have seen a ghost. No made up story of spiritual manifestations will do. The candidate must satisfy a rigid examining board that he has really seen a ghost, or is bo vividly impressed that he hits seen one that he is able to convey the impression in all its force to the minds of his examiners. It amounts to one and the same in the long run. Although this ghostly society was founded in 1S37 it now has only twenty members. Evidently spooks are below par at Crawfordsville, or else in that corn and hog laden state the atmosphere is not healthy for ghosts. Initiations occur only once a year. The appearance of the clubroom is enough to make the rash candidate believe he sees ghosts whether there are any or not ghosts to right of him, ghosts- to left of hirra, ghosts before. The club itself meets in a room which was at first a dancing hall, later a gambling place. Within its walls a murder was committed and an old woman dropped dead from heart disease. The secretary's stand was formerly the dissecting table of the Indiana Medical college. The room is draped with white cheese cloth and all the chairs are black, made from the wood of a scaffold on which murderers were sent to their doom, some converted, others as tough and unrepentant as the pirate Captain Kidd. The bellrope is one with which a wretch who murdered his sweetheart was strangled, and there are a museum and library as full of horrors as one of Anne Radcliffe's novels. In this lively and jolly place the twenty ghost clubbers meet monthly and detail their experiences. At each meeting papers are read which must be the account of a veritable ghostly encounter and no figment of an active imagination, though just how the auditors are to decide this is uncertain. At the society's annual banquet those persons, if there are any, who have the courage and the requisite gnost seeing qualities are initiated as new members. After they collect a sufficient number of the hair lifting stories which constitute their chief entertainment at the nightly meetings, these gen tlemen ought to give them to the world in a volume entitled "Ghost Club Pa pers." What Sunday Is. The Christian Union sets forth the fol lowing as its ultimatum on the Sunday question. It assumes as nearly as a rej ligious and theological periodical can the knock-that-chip-off-my-shonlder at titude and invites criticism and ques tions as to its position, which the editor has evidently taken after careful thought and courageous determination. His point is that the Jewish Sabbath and the Christian Sunday are two entirely dif ferent institutions. Sabbath and Sunday are two entirely differ ent days. The one is not a precedent for the other. The Sunday law was not written 3,000 years ago on perishable stone; it is written today in the imperishable nature of man. Sunday is a great privilege, and Sunday obli gation 13 the obligation of a great privilege. Sunday is a feast day, not a fast day. The laborer has a right to his Sunday. If private conscience does not give it to him. pub lic law should secure it for mm. Legislation can give only the holiday; it is for the individual to make it a holy day. The rich have their libraries and pictures on Sunday; why not the common people their public libraries and picture galleries? If Christian people attempt to impose a Sab bath burden on others by law they will be de feated; if they will attempt to secure a Sun day privilege for others by law they may suc ceed. Until recent years Jews were forbid den to own real estate in any country on the continent of Europe. It may be in teresting, therefore, to know that the largest land owner in the world, the man witn even more acres tnan an American millionaire who buys np whole counties on speculation, is a Jew- Baron Hirsch, of Paris. By a late pur chase in the Argentine Republic he becomes the proprietor of a farm larger than the state of Montenegro. He will settle many of his expatriated Russian brethren here. Whittier's first printed poem was writ ten when he was seventeen. He says of himself, "I was a callow youth when 1 first began to rhyme a mere stripling, who loved the 6ong of the bird while I was hoeing in the cornfield, and often paused in my work of planting potatoes to think of the far away east." It may encourage struggling geniuses to recall that the poet Whittier paid his board and tuition m school for a time at a most unpoetio trade making slippers. The socialist wants it to be all law, while the anarchist wants no law at alL That is the difference between them. The socialist wants crovernment to do everything for everybody. The anar chist desires to abolish all government and let the original moral and Christian ideas in the human race be the rules of conduct The appointment of Lord Dufferin to succeed Lord Lytton as embassador at Paris tops off the career of a man who has received more honors in the way of diplomatic and official dignity than any other Englishman. The conclusion of the agricultural de partment at Washington is that arti ficial rain making is a failure. It speaks for itself what a lady said of Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup the other day. A single bottle had cured her child ot a most fearful cough. It never fails to give speedy relief and permanent cure.

The presentation by Sir Edwin Ar nold of the manuscript of a meritorious and intrinsically valuable poem to the Lotos club recalls an incident that marked the visit of Henry Irving to this city in 1889. Like Sir Edwin, Mr. Irving had been an honored guest at a Lotos club banquet. The enthusiasm of the lotos eaters is boundless and their hospitality is proverbial. Sir Edwin, in the enthusiasm of the moment, presented the club with the manuscript of a poem for which he had been offered a large sum of money. Mr. Irving, after enjoy- in!? the hospitality of the club, insisted on presenting each member with an annual pass to the Lyceum theater, in London. The limitless possibilities of such a presentation impressed certain members of the club to such an extent that they undertook the task of prevailing upon each member to send a note declin ing tne pronered lavor. .air. irvings impulsive generosity was thereby saved from very expensive consequences. New York Times. The Length of Your Talk. The latest achievement of the pedo meter is to measure the amount of space one's chin travels over in the course of a day. It was reported that a New York woman recently tied a pedometer to her chin and found to her great surprise that she had talked twenty-five miles between breakfast and lnnch. She was so embarrassed over the result of the reading of the pedometer that she would not tell what she had been talking about. It might have been the children, it might have been the servants, but more than likely it was a talk with some dear friend on what to wear this season. New York Advertiser. The Danger of Overeating. When more food is taken into the stomach than can be appropriated for the purpose of growth, repair and func tional activity, all the organs of di gestion, assimilation and excretion are overtaxed to dispose of this superfluity. Additional labor is put upon the kidneys, lungs and other excretory organs, to eliminate unused material which has served no end in' the human economy. And this strain long continued leads to an impairment of vigor, and not infrequently to chronic disorders which puzzle the best of physicians to overcome. Hall's Journal of Health. The very latest diversion 1n high class neckwear is in the form of the four-in-hand self tied scarfing, the fabric being in soft, yielding, but heavy woven all silk stuff.

Such high class drivers of trotters as Budd Doble, Gill Curry, John Splan, Ed Bither, W. E. WTeeks and Jack Feek approve a license system. Such breeders J. C. Sibley, W. R. Allen, C. J. Hamlin an J. Malcolm Forbes also favor it. Lord Clinton, record 2:17, besides being of unknown parentage, has had a somewhat checkered career. Until 1S90 he was used as a hack and hunted with hounds. In 1891 he showed an iuclination to trot, which culminated in his winning three beats at the Birmingham (Ala.) meeting in 2:21, 2:17, 2:18. WAYSIDE GLEANINGS. An infant at birth usually weighs one- twentieth of the maximum weight it ought to attain in middle life. The natives of the Friendly islands spend most of their time in the water. They are great swimmers and divers. The most unscrupulous cab drivers in the world are said to be found in Havana, which supports 4,000 of them. Mail matter is now sent from Paris to Berlin by pneumatic tubes, and is some times delivered within thirty-five minutes. Chess was played by the Chinese 170 years before the Christian era, and probably long before that, for the ancient Per sians are supposed to have known of it. The Imperial university at Tokio, Ja pan, is probably the largest in the world, having an enrollment of 2,000 scholars and a facultv of forty members. It is under government control. The output of matches in the United States amounts to $12,000,000 a year. One cubic foot of lumber produces exactly 15,- 000 sticks of matches, and an ordinary match manufactory turns out about 40,-000,000 6ticks a day. The new national library building, now in course of erection in Washington, will cost $0,000,000. There are thirty-three arches on the four sides of the building, and it is proposed to ornament the keystones of these arches with representative heads of the races of mankind. A Chicago company which makes a specialty of manufacturing sermons claims to have on its rolls the names or l.uoo clergymen whom it regularly supplies with sermons, including "a New York minister who gets 10,000 a year." The charge is only one dollar a week. The sacred standard at Constantinople is benevea to ue iormea 01 ine neiner erarment of Mohammed, and a pair of his pyjamas, which are reverentially preserved at Lahore, are held by the faithful to have miraculously extinguished a fire at that place no longer ago than 1849. PEN, PENCIL AND BRUSH. Dr. Edward Everett Hale's young son, Robert Beverly Hale, is about to appear in the character of an author. Douglas Voth, a son of the sculptor Leonard Voth, is said to have inherited a great deal of his father's talent, though he is more skillful with the brush thau with the chisel. The dismissal of Mr. Bogy from the pen sion office on account of his novel recalls the fact that Walt Whitman was also discharged from a federal position in Washington because of his "Leaves of Grass." Bret Harte has lived so long abroad that there is little likelihood of his returning to America for a permanent residence. He like3 the English ways and the English like his books, so that he finds his foreign residence most congenial. Isabella Mallon, the undefinable Bab, is a rather petite blond, gay, versatile and susceptible of a thousand fancies, capable of the most graceful and effortless abandon, and at the same time seriously inclined. She is an enigma, but though unsolv- able, a great favorite with alL Mrs. Frances Hodgson Burnett has founded an asylum for newsboys in Drury Lane, London, in memory of her dead son, Lionel, the original of "ljittle lxrd Fauntleroy." It is called Lionel's home, and Mrs. Burnett will devote to its main tenance a generous portion of her income. CURIOUS CULLINGS. Washing is still done in Japan by getting into a boat and letting the garments drag after the boat by a long string. A Portsmouth (N. H.) woman recently found a one cent piece in an egg which one of her hens had laid, and later on the same hen laid an egg with a ten cent piece in it. The streets of Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, are so narrow that the street cars that were imported had to be sawed in two in order to allow them to turn the corners. In St. Louis recently a large building in one of the best business streets of the city was torn down simply because it was thought to be "hoodooed," which shows that superstition still has a strong hold on some people. The Chinese have a superstition that if they release a bird or a beast in captivity they draw down a blessing upon tnem-selves. Recently one of them bought three turtles at Portland, Or., and threw them into the ocean. rshen Baby was sick, we gave her Castoria. When she was a Child, she cried for Castoria. When ?he became Miss, she clung to Castoria. W-n au,- had Children, she gave them Castoria Eddie Gould is the tallest of all the Gould family.

TLev Augustus Tolton, of Chicago, is said to be the only colored Catholic priest in tbe United States. He was born a slave in Kalis county, Mo., in 1854, and for twelve vears worked in a tobacco factory in Quincy, Ills. The Bean Brummel of New York's mid dle aged millionaires is D. O. Mills, who follows the fashions in male attire very closely, wears his clothes well and is altogether a model for a metropolitan Crcesus to pattern after. Frederick Gleason, an inmate of the Old Men's home in Boston, is said to be the father of illustrated journalism in the United States. He was rich and prosperous less than forty years ago, with an income in 1851 of $50,000 a year. What is Castona is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants and Children.

C Osgood, Lowell, H&sa. Castoria is the best reniedf for children of which I am acquainted. I hoj e the day is not far distant when mothers will consider the real interest of their children, and use Castoria instead of the various quack nostrums which are destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium, rnorpbino, soothing syrup . nd other hurtful agents down their throats, thereby Bendinf "iieu to premature graTes."
