Annenkoff, eon of the Princess Dolgorouki (morganatic wife of Alexander II), who is the head of the great trans-Caucasus railway into Turkestan and Afghanistan. The collection comprises natural products of Central Asia, and arms, clothing, jewels, and household articles of the various provinces, as well ad a panorama of a battle in Turkestan, with scenic illustrations of the snow-capped mountains. WHO wants to cross the ocean in a jiffy? What shall it profit a mau to tuko a vacation simply to be shot from one placo to another as from a catapult? Everybody agrees that the most testfnl thing about a journey abroad is the ocean voyage. The time spent on the water, where one is cut off from business, from mails, telegraph, newspapers, society and all that worries or annoys, is the best medicine imaginable for tired Americans. Why wish it shortened? When one can cross the ojeari in two or three days the advantages and attractions of a foreign trip will be greatly lessened. A FKENCIU women has bequeathed To the Paris academy of sciences a considerable sum to found a prize to bo paid to anyone who shall prove that he or she has made a sign to a planet and that sign has heen answered. ''The planet Mars is expressly excluded," said the testatrix, "as that IB too well known already." TNis seems an invidious discrimination'. The academy will probably accept the bequest, because of the common-sense addition that until this bo done the interest of the money shall every five yeara bo paid to the astronomer who shall have contributed most, to human knowledge of the planets.

Dr. Seaver, of Yale College, is waging war upon the habit of tobacco-smoking, which some of the students there indulge in. He is the physician of the college and the professor of athletics, a man of science who follows scientific methods in any investigation he may undertake. He has been engaged for eight years_ in observing the effects of tobacco-smoking upon the bodies and minds of the Yale (students, and he has just published a remarkable budget of statistic^; Dr. Seaver informs the public that the students of Yale who indulge in tobacco-smoking are inferior iu physical vigor and mental ability to thoso who do not. According to his reckoning, the smokers have less lung power than the anti- smokers; they have less chest -in Hating capacity; they are of less bodily weight, and they are even of less height. The muscular and nervous power of the smoking students is notably and noticeably less than that of the anti- smoking. From an athletio point of view, therefore, the Yale professor of athletics considers himself justified in waging war upon the tobacco habit. Not only in u physical way, but also in an intellectual way, tho Yale smokers are inferior to the anti-smokers. The smoking habit is disadvantageous to scholarship. Of course students who, within a given time, have received junior appointments above dis- curtations, only five per cent, were smok- ere, and very few smokers received appointments of any kind. It would seem therefore, that the brain power of the smokers at Yale are far inferior to ' those of tbe anti-smokers. The demonstrations of Dr. Seaver appear to be influencing the Yale mind. He is able to report that seventy per cent, of tbe senior class in the college do not smoke, and that not a single candidate for the rowing crew is a smoker. Young America, athletic, intellectual. and ethical, can ruminate.upon the Yale statistics collected by Dr. Seaver. tnm tb« P«pth» of Mt*«rjr.

What is one of England's swiftest trains, the Scotch express, flits like a scin- tiliivnt shuttle between London and Edinburg at a mean, speed exceeding fifty miles an nour, though it sacrifices thirty-five minutes in order that the passengers may have several opportunities to refresh, thetn^ selves and stretch their limbs. The entire distance covered, 400 miles, is less than that between New York City and Buffalo. i In the United States and contiguous territory we harness a hotel on wheels to every flying express which sets Out.for any prolonged journey. Here you may travel from tnn Hudson to the Golden Gate without pause (unless for an occasional change of locomotives), without emitting your train and without leaving benind you the luxury or comfort of spring beds, baths, barber shop or rich viands excellently cooked and'served. : Tho "magnificent distances" of Unde Sam's domain made the sleeping car a necessity, 1 and the dining cat soon became the -inevitable adjunct of the sleeper.: • , , '• , Well enough after its fashion was,' rind .yet is, the wayside lunch counter for the comparatively slow way train and the oci cupants thereotwhose. trip does not exceec a few hundred miles.i Buti^wasin the very'nature of things that a,-different an better- system must be., provided ; , for th surging, hurrying legions whose chief aim in traveling was to get over the grounc as rapidly as possible-and whose digestiv economy really deserved some more hu mane treatment than could be accorded to it amid the frantic rush and crush at thi typical railroad restaurant. Hence came in due order the railroac car buffet, thg hotel car and the clininj car. : GROWTH Oft THE SYSTEM. A continuous trip across the continent or even for much shorter distance, woulc be impossible unless travelers could in transit with meat and drink as pass engers are during a transatlantic voyage The time having arrived for a solution o; the problem, American inventive talen was quicktq solve it. . Results—on any of the great trunk lines to-day the traveler, • while speeding onward at the rate of fifty miles an houi or more, can en joy as luxurious a repasl as if seated in a fiist class hotel and a quite as low a cost, Every region through which he passes sets be r ore him the tribute of its richest edible products, to be luisurely absorbed, and he quaffs his champagne frappe as the glorious pano rama of mountain and river, lake anc prairie, unfolds itself to his satisfied anc enraptured vision. There's genuine ''poetry of motion" for you. • BrilTat Savarin should have lived to behold it. When royalty goes abroad in the Old World even its wealth and prestige can commend no such magica! abundance of creature comforts as awail the American sovereign citizen in whose pockets jingle or repose a few potential dollars. From the beneficent water cooler to the buffet was an easy and natural gradation. If a railroad could furnish Adam's ate to all its patrons why not also provide other beverages and alight cold lunch for such as were willing to pay for these conveniences? Accordingly, in certain cars little snuggeries were fitted up and gradually improved^ which carried cold joints, sardines, boiled eggs, baked beans, fruit and various delicacies, besides wines, beers, mineral waters and cigars. Nowadays ;here is a compact stove in nearly every auffet to keep soups, meats, and coffee warm, but all the cooking is done before ;he car starts out, except, of course, the making of tea and coffee. Next came the hotel car, a combination of sleeper and dining car, but the popularity of the service soon displaced it for general traveling purposes, making way :or the dining car, which is a first-class restaurant on wheels and is devoted to no other function whatever. But the hotel car still has its own special utility and value. It is built so as to provide bed and board for a varying number of persons, from a dozen to a couple of score, and it is claijy chartered by private parties who desire to arrange their own itinerary and to travel with as much privacy aud seclusion as if isolated in their own respective homes. Tourists and theatrical people contrive to keep the hotel cars busy the whole year I'-iund. Railroad presidents and many millionaires have their private hotel cars just as the average rich man has his yacht on'sea or lake. You can take yorr own chief am' waiters along, or the company will Jsupply whatever you may .desire. Then you can make arrangements to tie on to a fast express train going anywhere, nrirl VAII no« nns4 nflP iiurl tl l,Ti. rtT.nw 1 * TTTU n « and you pan ever you will. off lay over" wher- WHAT A OOLLAlt VYILb HUY Finely printed menus are provided and for one dollar elaborate meals with 1 costly viands, the best the markets afford, are served in' fine china and furnished silver. Children are fed at half rates, while the lucky train hands get their meals at twerjy-five cents each, THE CQilMISSAlUAT. •" He is prwerbially a wise, niaji who knows how to run a hotel, yet for obvious reasons a still higher grade of executive and administrative capacity is required for the organization and management of the perpetually shifting hotels on wheels. They are here today aud 500 miles away tomorrow. Nevertheless the watchful eye of the steward always scrutinizes the help and the larder. And it is ail donp with the precision of clockwork. On the, New York Central railroad and its branches the Wagner palace cars are used exclusively, reaching as far west as Chicago. On the other large lines in the United States, Canada and Mexico, the Pullman cars are operated. The whole continent is marked off into "uivisions," so that the dining car which makes a trip in one direction today may return tomorrow. The headquarters of the Pullman. serffee for this vicinity is.ftt%aldo titg, Jersey City, with Mh Denbaft charge, while the Wagner commissariat: located a mile above the Harlem rive: with Harry W. Taylor at the helm. T describe eithei is to describe both. Should you happen to walk about half mile north of the Mott Haven depot t< where the New York Central and the New York & New Haven tracks fork apart, yo will soon begin to notice line after line < palace cars reaching up almost to Melros Scores of men and Women are btisy wit mop and broom and brush, Cleaning, dust ing, polishing, f Proceeding a rifle shot further, you com to a long, low brick-building, throug whose doors flit busy clerks, cooks an waiters. This is the commissary head quarters, where the vestibuled ttains or made' uy, equipped, provisioned anc manned. Should you chance to be her early some fine morning you will see for midable quantities of meats, fish, poultry vegetables, fruits, liquors, canned good and ice in process of transfer from baggag cars to be stowed away in tl:big refngera tor or piled on capacious shelves. ; ;< Perish able products have to ,be renewed, or ; re planished daily;-white .of •non-per'ishabl material a large stock is always kept on hand. At the southern end of the building a huge kitchen, clean and shining as pol ishedonyx, where the larger joints am poultry are roasjed and the soups inadi under the direction of an ebony chef. PROVISIONING A CAB. 'When a train of palace cars is made up and'the hour approaches for whirling 1 down to the _Grand Central depot thi equipment service of silver, china, cutlery table linen, etc., has already been inspect ed. The wine closet and, the iceboxes are filled and the cigar boxes checked off Nothing must be overlooked or forgotten and the presence of even a particle of <?us on tho hinge of a folding table could no escape the keen eye- of Mr. Taylor. Into the refrigators of the car go steaks, chops j spring chickens, -etc.—everything that may be € broiled or fried in transit- where ' the'-big joints," the puddings anc other viands which do not spoil by keep ing as rapidly as bone from the stationary to the moveable '-kitchen. 'When all is ready the train is 'whisked down to the Grand Central depot,; the. passengers got aboard,'the bell rings and the hotel on wheels speeds westward like a thunder bolt. The value of the provender out aboarc a dinning car for a single trip is aboui $400. All of it may be consumed, yet hardly any of it is to be reckoned, as wastage. The train hands are too sagacious to let such edibles goto loss when thej ore cleared out at the normal rate ol twenty-five cents per meal. Moreover the commissionary can; pretty closelv guage what will be required for a trip. He watches the mutation 3 of traffic about as closely as a passenger agent does, and ii any exceptional "rush" occurs He is always prepared to meet it. The barber shops and the libraries on trains_are also under the jurisdiction of the commissionary department. "There cannot be a large margin ol profit in this business?" said 1, interrogatively, to Mr. Taylor. •"That's a secondary consideration," was the reply. "The dining service was established as a necessary accommodation to the traveling public. It saves human nerves and digestion'from a vast lot of needless wear aud tear. It is withiu reach of the purses of the million as well as those of the millionaires, and it involves a valuable economy of time to the railroad corporations." Then Mr. Taylor jumped to the telephone to learn that a supply of fruit ordered for a private car had miscarried through the fault of the expressman. In less than two minutes the order was duplicated for delivery at a point a hundred miles away. THE CUEWS. One steward, four cooks ana five waiters compose the crew of the dining car. With scarcely an exception they are colored. The ex-chattel and ex-counterband has proven himself peculiarly adapted to the requirements of the palace car service, whether as porter, COOK or waiter. He has a jolly time of it, too. He lives >n the fat of the land and his tips are many, fie is not overworked, for, after he makes i trip to Buffalo and back, he is allowed a "lay off'' for thirty-six consecutive hours. When a meal is ordered on a dining car a check must be given to the cook, who deposits it in a box provided for the purpose. When the bill is paid a duplicate check is deposited by the steward in a similar box. So, too, .with . the wine room or buffett, and the various checks must tally at tho end of the trip. It would be a very hard matter to defraud ;he company l»y collusion or otherwise. If wine is broken because of the swaying mo- Ion of the cars the sealed necks of the jottles must bb produced in evidence. _ If you have the money and'the incliim- -ian you can charter a hotel car, take your 'riends along, hire a crew of from two to ;on persons and travel at your leisure all )ver the continent. The compauy will 'urnish the commissariat if desired. The cost of such a composite car for ten days or nore, including attendance, average about >40 per day. To this must be added the cost of hauHng,_ which, east of Chicago and St. Louis, is fixed at a minimum of ughteen full first class fares, and west 1 of heric.points at_a minimum of fifteen fares. Should you possess a very long purse and vant to do things in the style befitting a nodern Croesus, you may procure a whole rain, consisting of dining car, one or more leepers, an observation car, and a composite car, having a baggage compart- neut, smoking rpom, < library, barber hop and bathroom.

Herald. nave Character iu It is easier, perhaps, to read tThorse's character in its face than it is to sum up he hidJen traits of a. man or woman by he facial expression, says Sporting World, .'he horse's head is a correct indication of he character; the human expression is )ften wholly counterfeit. . "I never ask bout a horse's traits," said a horse-buyer he other dtty. ."All I want is a good, quare look ad him in the faca. Once in a hundred times 1 may mistake tho head, ut not oftener than that, I believe." It doesn't require an expert to read horses' : aces, either. A person who has never handled ft horse oau saunter down a main ity thoroughfare any afternoon and point; ut the good, docile fauiil.v carriage horse, he biting horse, the treacherous animal, he one that is likely to-kiek or run at any uoment, or the proud, high-spirited horse, hat may be dangerous and yet not vicious n the least. .The most interesting horee is the good- atured family horse. He bears ill-will oward no one, and has the good will of all mho look upon him. He has but to be een to become u favorite. There are thousands of families who would as soon part forever with an immediate relative o& to lose the good-natured old family hAfse —the one that lived with all the c&iFcMen, and oftentimes, it seems, showed as^mVuch care and affection for them as their parents. The children or women of the family were always safe when out with him. If some other horse ran away he was al* ways sure to get out of. the way of all danger, and he never allowed the carriage he hauled to collide with any obstacle. The biting horse always reminds one of the dyspeptic man—he is always mad, always irritated. Pedestrians frown at this horse as they pass along the street, and the horse, it may be remarked, never fails to frown back, and if opportunity offers snaps his enemy—and everything alive is his en6my^-on the back with his big, broad teeth. It may be said for the Jbiting horse, however, .that he is. not always Of a disposition wholly bad. He may show bad temper when approached by man, woman or child, and still be one of the gentlest and most reliable while doing his daily work. The kicking horde can ... nearly- always be singled out by the vicious gleam in his eyes, which .stamps him a born kicker. And, too, _the kicker is nearly always a restless, impatient animal, who seems to imagine that his born right to freedom is being interfered with. Of all horses, though, the miserable-looking horse attracts much attention. This is the horse that is presented by the use of • the check-rein. Like women and men who wear shoes a size too small, he shows the outward evidence of misery. Many good- natured horses, horsemen say, have been made fretful and vicious by being enslaved by the infamous and cruel check-rein. If there are men and women who are over- burdrned with struggles for life, .have lost all spirit, have agreed to take ttuY' they come, so there are horses broken uu by the hard and continuous servicjjjf" man, which show by their facial '"expi ~ ion that they arf not caring whether' old world continues to go or not. Thi sad-faced animals may be found hitched the drays around town, to the ricket, wagons of the peddlers and rag-pickers, met occasionally to the wagons of the contractors and teamsters. Once, perhaps, ;hey were full of the buoyancy of youth, and constant drudgery has made them more tools, barely animate. WISCONSIN NEWS. A bridge connecting La Crosse and Trempealeau counties, across the Black •iver is being constructed ,by the Chicago Bridge company. The expense is borne principally by La Crosse county and merchants of the city of La Crosse. It is expected to be of great benefit to La Cresse.
