Lowell, Mass , is now connected witb over one hundred cities, the longest line being that to Exeter, N. 11 , a distance of 150 miles. One company in iht EaaternStates uses 1,500 telephones, controls 1,500 miles of wire, and pays the American Bell Company a royalty of $1,200 per month SOME days ago we published a statement, upon the authority of a Danville letter to the Chicago Tribune, with reference to the shops, power divisions, etc , of the W abash roid. According to this statement Dec t'.ur would have been but little in ire than a way station on the line, but WP learn now upon the best of au- ihanty that while a poition of the statement hufl sime truth, there were other parts of it that had no better foundation th in supposition or guess-work. Decatur too important a point to be left out-in the cold THE Marvell boys, who reside near Waynesville, in DeWitt county, have been 'ivine the Illinois Midland railroad com pany considerable trouble. For a full week they jwent along the track of the road n u h their bnckets of soap and brooms and put the slick stub" on the rails, and they asserted that they intended to continue it till they get nay for the right of way and stock that the road has killed for them, or get themselves put in "I'Jutky Vtontii." lu Friday evening next, Prof. Nathan Sheppard, of New York, will lecture at the tabernacle on the above subject Miss Frances E Willard, president of the National W f.

The members of the company above named re, A. T. Hill, James W. fla worth, Jis Iillikin, W.T. Wells, John Ullrich, W. Linn, John R Miller, Franklin Priest, eorge Haworth, H. W. Hill and R W. liller, all of whom are residents and roperty owners of Decatur, eicept H W. Miller, who is a comparative Btran- er in the community. He hails from nicago. The purpose of the company, y request, was partly explained to the Idermen by Mr. E. L. Holly, inperinten- ent of the American District Steam Co . Holly System), which has offices at Lock- ort, N. Y., ana at New York City. Mr. [oily staled that there were now If) cities n the United States being heated by the Holly system, and that all the works give atisfaction. Nineteen other cities in the ountry will be heated by steam next win- r, as companies have been organized tor hat purpose. The company will furnish team to heat public and, private build- ngs, offices, school rooms, the opera ouse, hotels, and will also furnish pjwer or large or small uunufactunns eiiab- shments, at a comparatively sm ill cost. 'he company wishes to be granted the rivilege to lay pipes-through the streets f the city, and lo erect suitable bulldogs in which to place the large sleain joil era that will be required for the en- erprise, anil ask that the privilege be ranted for a term of 25 years from the assage of the ordinance. Mr. Holly also tated that the company would not be kely to pay much attention in the be- inning lo lighting the city by the F.lec- nc process, but as soon as the process as perfected the company would be in ood shape to furnish the same at a nomi- al cost. Belleville, III., Dubuque, Iowa, nd other cities, are heated by the Hjlly team heating process, such as the com- any referred to will introduce here pro- ided tho ordinance is adopted. - 1 » . -- "Pe»' Auti M' tb« Plratei."

Among the many troupes that visit few Haven none are more welcome than he Renti Minstrels. At Muiic Hall last venmg they delighted a large audience by a programme replete with novelties-- ndeed everything that is new, novel and entertaining this enterprising company to monopolize, and their ability to ease never falls. The Indies' Cornel iaiid executed a march last night that rested a furore and was redemanded, while the burlesque on "Pinafore" was y far the most amusing travesty we have yet seen. Come again.

McKahan, a hayseed sort of a 'oung man, hailing from the village of jovlngton, in the county where bourbon lemocr.its are Ihiuker than blue ribbons at a rousing temperance mceling, appear- d on the BttecH this morning n i l h a ar-away look in hia eyes, with a "snipe" etween his lips, and with deep sealed .idness iu his heart. He reacheo. l)t- calur yesterday, and last evening, accord- ng to hi* own itory, he became too familiar with several saloons, or more cor- ectly speaking, he 'took up' 1 loo readily wilh Iwo slick-iongued slrangers, w h o jlayed the Lovingtomte for all he was worth First they interviewed McKahan nd found he had about $110 on his ptr- ton. Then they became his friends at once, and invited him into a saloon to l i k e n drink. He went willingly. Soon .hey asked him to take another drink, but they headed for a new saloon, and after all had tossed off the liquid, McKahan was asked if lie would "take a walk " Je thought his companions were the best of fellows, and as a matter of couree he 'walked" without a second invitation. The next thing McKahan knew on com- ng to his senses several hours later, was .hat he had been in a sound sleep and was then resting upon a downy couch at a house of ill-fame somewhere south of the city He looked for his money, but it was gone. He complained in a meek way about his loss, but no one professed to :now anything about the lost pocketbook, and the victim finally, and doubt- ess correctly, conclu'ljd that the chances were that he had been drugged and rob- led by hisfalbe friend', w h o were then nusib'e.
