A Woman Who Is an Expert In Pfcrttiad- Ing Tramps to Work on B Railroad. From the Kansas City World: Mrs. S. J. Atwootl calls herself the "Hobo Hustler of the West," nnd there is possibly no other woman In the world who holds a similar position. Her business is to gather up all the idle laborers she can find and put them to work on the Union Pacific railroad in Colorado, Wyoming and other western sections. She has been employed by the Union Pacific In this capacity for the past twelve years, and the company finds her services indispensable. Mrs. Atwood arrived in Kansas City on Friday, and Saturday she left with fifty men for Wyoming. Most«of the men were negroes. Several of them had the appearance of typical hoboes. Mrs. Atwood has been In the business so long that she says she can tell by looking at a man whether or not he will make a good Hand. When' she sees one who suits her taste she approaches him without hesitation and asks him how he would like the position she has to offer. It only requires the work of about a minute for the terms to be arranged, and the man Is escorted to some corner where others she has engaged have been congregated. Mrs. Atwood has no place she calls her home, but she usually makes Denver her headquarters. Most of her time is spent between Denver and Portland, Ore. She says she does not exactly like the style of the men she received in Kansas City, as they do not look sufficiently hardy, but that labor is very scarce in the far west just now and she could do no better. The "hobo hustler" is a little woman, about UO years of age. She has short cnriy hair that is as black as night. ' She walks with sin agile step and always C. O. W. RY. IMPROVEMENTS.

The annual repor.t of the Great West- Srn shows that the' largest amount expended by it in reduction of grades has placed it in the lead of all the granger tines in the tonnage hauled by its en- tines. In the annual report of the Great Western for 1S96, President Stickney itated that the maximum grades on the line were then one per cent or 52.80 feet to the mile, and that the company proposed to reduce its grades one-half, or to 26 feet to the mile. He elated that the economy which would result may be estimated from the statement that the maximum load which one engine would then haul was 700 tons, 240 tons of dead weight (cars), and 460 tons of pay load (freight), while with such a reduction of grades and revision of curves as was proposed would increase the engine load to 1,000 tons, or about 350 tons of dead weight (cars), and 650 tons of pay load (freight), thus enabling each train to haul 190 tons moie of paying load without any increase oC expenses. In the report for 1898 President Stickney states that the company began a comprehensive plan of improving the track and permanent wny by cutting down grades, widening and strengthening the banks, Increasing side tracks, making permanent with earth, stone and steel its bridges, and thoroughly ballasting the trae.k. Slneo then the work has progressed systematically, and the present summer will nearly complete the work thus planned. There has been expended upon the permanent way: In tho fiscal year 1895 $ ITO.iWl.fifi In the liscal year 18!ffi IM.Ktit.lS In the fiscal yonr 1S97 ri2(i.44!l.:i:i In the fiscal year 1X9$ n«.'i,"L'2.i;ii MAN OF SCIENCE TO THE CATS Bomb Invented for tlio Donoflt of Victims of Nocturnal Concerts, Germany has made another important contribution to the field of invention. This time a man of science, who, presumably, occupies a' bedroom in the'rear of a city house, has invented a bomb to be thrown at nocturnal cats. The bomb is of about the size of a baseball and will explode with a loud noise iiipon forcible contact, but is warranted perfectly harmless. The innovation 'promises great relief and satisfaction ' to sufferers, and a mighty saving in books and crockery. Many a tooth ,mug has been shivered into bits on the 'back fence, and there are persons who are afraid to keep small books in their rooms because of the tempting fitness : of such volumes for missiles. Apples or oranges covertly stolen from the dinner table are first-rate ammunition; ;but, unquestionably, the bomb fills a : long-felt want. Even if one's aim is inaccurate and one does not hit the cat, the bomb is bound to hit something and make a racket. Pessimists say that after the first experience tho noise will not make the slightest impression upon the serenade! 1 , and that exploding bombs will only add to the suffering of the neighbors. The harm- leesness of the bomb is its flaw, say these vindictive persons, and the only way to etop a cat concert is to massacre all the performers. But the German professor insists that his bomb is a boon to humanity and it certainly would provide more exciting entertainment than the ordinary missile.—Ex.

Strnctnre Rich In Historic Interest *t Lost Torn Down. , That salutation sometimes heard oti the boulevards: "So you have at last come out of Mazas, old boy!" will have to be abandoned forever. The famous prison near the Qaro de Lyon, which may be compared to the Holloway citadel in London, has been condemned, after having long existed as the place of condemnation of lawbreakers, says the London Telegraph. Every day exactly eighty prisoners out of the 900 confined in it are carefully handcuffed, placed in a black van and removed to the Sante, which is to be demolished herrafter. Mazas was built in 1845, and look the place of the La Force prison. It was for patriotic reasons called after Col. Mazas, who was shot, at Austerlitz, but his family protested against so equivocal an honor. Hence the jail was officially known as the house of cellular confinement. The public, however, continued to refer to it as Mazas, and the appellation will stick to it in history. It was originally given 'because it was on the Boulevard d'Austerlttz, and the memory.of-the brave colonel waa thus sought to be perpetuated. Of late years the prison chiefly contained persons condemned to one year or less, and was far more comfortable than In the old days, when the system of solitary confinement In cells was rigorously practiced. Mazas has a few habitual offenders, who purposely broke the law in order to be sent there for the winter. One ot these had contrived to make himself, so agreeable and popular in the place that the governor used to shake hands with the fellow when he came to pass the rough weather inside the hospital walls of the old house of cellular confinement. In a year or so hence the prisons of the Seine will be established at Fresno, a short distance from Paris, where large monumental constructions nrc now in course of erection.

Mr. Peet, a very diffident man, was unable to prevent'himself being introduced one evening to a fascinating young lady, who, misunderstanding his name, constantly addressed him as Mr. Peters, much to the gentleman's distress.

"Ah, but I don't know you well enough, Mr. Peters," said the young lady, blushing, as she withdrew behind her fan. A Sad Stato of Affairs.

There is really very little jewelry Worn, as almost any kind except tbe simplest is out of place with cot.tou morning frocks or the everlasting and most convenient shirt-waist, and with the pretty organdies and sheer muslins over slips of bright colors for afternoon wear a small pin or brooch, Svith all the frills and furbelows of laco, is all that ia necessary. The watch and chain, however, is always in good taste, and one of the latest fashions is to have a bunch of charms on the chain. This, Just now, is a long thin chain of gold or silver, and sometimes jet, caught here and there with small beads or precious stones. The watch, of course, is at the end, and tucked safely in the waist ribbon or belt. Then about four or five inches farther up on the chain are bunched together as many small charms or trinkets as one may choose. One young woman who prides herself upon being in the height of the fashion wears on her chain, hanging prettily over the belt a little to the left, a collection which would make another envious, She has, in the first place, a beautiful old seal ring left her by an uncle, and a family heirloom as well—a tiny ship of gold, with masts and sails, ropes and smokestacks complete. Then she has, in coral, what the French and Italians call "les cornes!" it looks like a little branch, with two twigs, and by the superstitious in Italy is supposed to be a sort of mascot to keep away the "evil eye." A heart in crystal came next, with a four-leaved clover imbedded in it. Several old family loqkets in gold—some studded in precious stones, and one with monogram in diamonds. A tiny golf-stick, a tennis racket, a miniature cannon ball in gold and a curious old gold thimble completed the collection. To be in good taste in this matter of wearing trinkets they should be very, very small—never as large or larger than the watch. The smaller they are the more curious and valuable they are.—Harper's Bazar. "A Homo In Texas."
