THE RAILROADS Telegraph Linemen are Hard at Work on Repairs. A SILVER WEDDING General News of Railroads and Railroad Employes. There Is no class of men more bussy nowadays than telegraph linemen, who are out almost constantly day and night. The damage to tho lines caused by Saturday morning's storm had not yet been n>|wired, when another and more furious storm struck the country ami i>:iralyzHl the service In tills territory fni- some hours. Sixty-eight poles, along tin,- line of the Pennsylvani: were broken down and commuiilcatloi tntoiTiipted.

Panhandle engineer, Charles 11 Si-hrier and wit'e, celebrated the tweiv ty-flftli .v.iniversary of their r.iarrlagt jit their residence last Saturday in a most delightful style. A number of invitations were issued and the hous wa.s crowded with piu-sts. Among t!i. out-of-town guests were Mrs. Pott it and daughter. Miss Clara, of Minneapolis.. Minn., and Sirs. Yeimess and son, of Indianapolis. Elaborate re- freshim'iii.s were served and many valuable and useful presents were received by Sir. aud Mrs. Sclirior.

A SLIl'TKIl THAT TRAVELED. On tho ::0th of last April some jolly young 1«dy of Chattanooga, Tcrtn., aided by "W. A, Henderson, money clerk in the express office there, started a dainty red slipper on^ its way all over the United States, Ueadheadiug it through tho express companies. Attached to the slipper Is a book In which are written the greetings ot hundreds of express agents, newspaper men, merchant's, etc., from fill parts of the country, a very interesting volume indeed. Many original poems are Inscribed to the fair owner of the slipper. Off the attached express tag is the inscription: "I am the property of a very pretty young lady, so tic a message to me for her." Tho shoe is a small red leather affair, showing the effects of wear. From Chattanooga it went to nearly every city in the cast, aud it has been kindly received everywhere. A LAWLESS ACT. Richmond Item: Shortly ..after the Indianapolis accommodation train, cast bound, left Centorvillo last evening, a big rock was thrown from the embankment through one o£ -the -windows. The window was open and hence tho glass was not broken, but the rock came near doing some deadly damage. It grazed the back of tho neck of an old gentleman, scratching tho slcin considerable and struck against a seat just under the arm of a young lady. If tho rock had struck either onc of ibcsa individuals it would have injured them severely. The train was going at a good rate nnd was too far past tho point whore the roclc was thrown to stop, so that nothing Is known as to who the miscreant was. RAILROAD NOTES.

Xo\v York Medical .'Journal: A healthy infant sleeps most of the time during the first weeks, and hi the early years people arc disposed to let children sleep ns they will. But when six or seven years old, when school begins, this sensible policy comes to ;in end, and sleep is put olf persistently j through nil the years up to manhood and womanhood. At the n^e of ten oi 1 eleven, the child Is allowed to sleep ouly eljiht or uitu; hours, when its parent's should insist on its having what it absolutely "needs, which, is ten or eleven at. least. Up to 20 a youth needs nine hours' sleep, and an adult should have eight. InsuUkMOUt sleep is one of the crying evils of tho day. The want of proper rest and normal conditions oil the nervous system, and especially 1ho bra'in. produces a lamei'.iable condition, deterioration in both body and mind, r.nd exhaustion, excitability and intellec:ual disorders are gradually taking the iilaee of the love of wiirk, general well-being and the spirit of inilative. Leave the money as it is—It is only a Medium of exchange. The changing of it will not make more businesc or times better. Why should it? How can you make more actual business by bailing six inches a foot, or, if silver would rise to par, by calling a foot a foot? Supply and demand make business. What difference can it make in the demand and supply if you change the medium ofexrhnnge? You can ruin bus iness by making the Medium of exchange doubtful, as free silver would do, but you cannot help it that way.

Fern Journal: Frank'Skinner and Lucicu Davenport rode to tiOgansport yesterday on their wheels and took in the circus. The two fat men were made i'mi of by many country women who live between Peru and Logaus- porl:. It was just this way, according to Mr. Davenport: His partner was sonic distance ahead nnd when he would pass any women they would say 'Oh, what a funny fat man on that bicycle!" Then. <3Ir. Davenport coming up in the rear would sot the women cra/,y and they would stand in the doors of their Lomcs and laugh until their sides ached. This sma oi pleasure did not exactly suit the fat men and when a woman WHS in sight they would pass her as quickly as possible to avoid attracting so much attention. NOTICE TO..

Bhe n«« Bceii "Taken Up" by tne Chicago FollCD Something I.lko Seven Hundred Tlmon In the Taut Twenty-Five Yearn. Last Monday noon, when the usual collection of offenders against tho law left the Chicago avenue station for the Bridewell, Lizzie Brown, so says the Chicago Tribune, went with them. It *tis not an. unusual experience for her, nnd it caused no surprise to the police, the Bridewell officials or to Lizzie hex- self. In fact, it was accepted as a matter of course, for much of Lizzie's life has been spent within the walls of that recuperative resort. Like the innn in the song, who had been "arrested one t'onsund times," she hud made a. rec'orc for herself, probably the high record of its sort in Chicago. In the last 23 years she has been "tnjcen up'' a number oi times, approximately estimated at 700 She is not, however, a dangerous offender. She is the enemy of no one bat herself. Iforitisthc wine cup, or, to be more exact, the thicU-bottomed Mquor glass, thnt onuses her frequentsojourn within the walls of the Chicago hospital for the morally dis&uscd. She is a victim of tho trouble familinrly known a "the recurrent jng." Monday marked tho close, of what was, for her, an unusually long period of enjoym-cntof the delights of freedom. One week had lapsed since she had scon the inside of the police station. , Lizzie Ernwn is a "i:!-.;-.rnet.er," and, ns is the case with most characters of the so: 1 ;, the part of hcr'ife which has not come ur.der the direct notice of the police is iu .•> great liw.rsiiri.'iJKl.-nown. So for as tho police kr.ow, she ha« no homo except the bridewell and the Chicago :nuc station.

La tor sho transferred her labors to the Xorth side, and A SKETCH FROM LIFE. did the siiui'c work at the Chicago avenue station. The police do not, know where she works now during the brief times in which she accumulates v-he wherewithal for .indulging a spree, but she soems always to lie- ;ib!e in one way or another to get hold of n. supply oJ "tJie crature." She wns born in Irela-r.d, but has spent nearly the whole of her life in Chicago, and is C:J years old. 'Lizzie, ia. known to. nearly everyone on the. Chicago police force. Almost every night she does not .spcjwl in the bridewell is passed in. n. police st'ition. Sometimes she .is picked up on the street by good-natured officers nr.d taken in until she recovers from the effects of the liquor. Often shcuppears at the station of her own accord, and her arrest is similar to that of the. nmn in, one of 3. Jf. Barrie's stories, who sent word to t-hu police that at a, certain hour ho would be passing a. certain place, noting upon which information, the oflicers skillfully apprehended him. Her arrest on Monday was of the latter sort. She appeared at the station, penniless, but bcaring'thc roariis'of the recent possession of money in a rolling gait nnd a thick speech, nnd announced th.it she was ready to "go out," She. was stowed away in a cell, and wlicn her turn came Justice Kersten, as usual, granted her request. Tuesday, at tho bridewell, she was still so much under the influence, of liquor as to prevent her talking correctly . She sat perfectly still wh ile a sketch was made of her, and asked whether it wns a good likeness, but except for a few mumbled sentences, which it was impossible to catch, she would say nothing else. Superintendent Crawford says she is the quietest and best-prisoner he has- ever had in the bridewell, and she has Burely given- him chance to form anopin- ion. She was. among t-ha first lond oi prisoners ever taken to the, place, and since 1871, when this occurred, has been a steady frequenter of the. prison. She has never been under discipline, and has never been reprimanded. Her present stay is to lust S3 days. In appearance Lizzie does not in {he least resemble tic- figure naturally pallet to m£n4 yvhen onc sp 60 * 3 of an habitual drunkard. Her. hair. does not hang about her face in unkempt locks, nor either is her face haggard or bloated. She has much the look of a hard-working housewife. She .is tall 'nnd stout, and dresses neatly and cleanly. Her gray hair is brushed bock from her lorehead, and she looks younger rather than older than -her. 00-odd years, CLOTHING. CLOTHING.

THE TARIS EXrOSlTION, The French government i# perfecting the details for the International exposition ro be hold in Paris in 1900 commemorating the birth of the century, and, in ihi« connection, ha.s asked the .State Doparl'ment for the iiiime of tho commissioner-gcne'ral \vho will represent the United States, nud for sncli other in forma lion available as to the participation of this country. To this acting Secretary Kockhill has replied ('hat the commissioner-general has not been named, as the American Congress took no step? at its recent sessio.'i to provide for an American representative at the exposition. He expressed the belief, however, that the approaching session of Congress will bring about ;ui acceptance of tho invitation of the French republic, , president Cleveland called the attention of Congress to the Invitation In his annual message l.-ist December, and expressed the most earnest hope that steps would be taken for an adequate representation by the United States. But Congress acts slowly on those affairs, and 110 measure was considered, the Idea being that there was plenty of time before 1000. It appears, however, that Great Britain, Germany and other leading powers have boon Quick to accept, and the French government is allotting spacee to these countries: American exhibitors are beginning to make inquiry as to where their goods will go, but no answer can be given to them. The prospect Is that tho best space will be taken before the United States accepts the Invitation and makes application for space. This was the case at the last exposition, when American exhibitors wore at much disadvantage in point of location. It is expected in official circles here that when Congress acts it will provide for a commissioner-general nud an as- ilstant. This was'tho case at the last French exposition, when General Fi-ankllii was commissioner-general at a salary of .^lO.OOO and the assistant ;ommissiouor received $5,000. The opinion prevails that as the appointee will serve after the present adminis- :ratiou ends, President Cleveland will not make the appointment, even though Congress passes the act before- March 4 next. Aside from the direct moliimeuts attached to tho office a fund is provided for office and living expenses. In the case of' General Franklin the French government" conferred on him the exceptional honor'of the cross of the Legion of Honor, while the assistant commissioner re- :eived a lessor distinction.
