TUB DETECTIVE SV3TEM Of THE I'KVN SYLVANIA SYSTEM. Indianapolis Journal: An opinion prevails that tbe railroad detective has what Is called a "soft aoap," so little IB hoard of him except when an Important arrest Is made. The workings of these officials are, to a great extent, kept quiet, and for this reason tho public knowa but llttlo about the risks thoy mke and the service they render. It Is thought to be a nice thing for a detective to carry a lot of passes and rido over railroads In search of persons who have robbed the company of money, or broken Into freight cars, stolen goods and shipped them miles away. Most of the loading roade have secret detectives as well as those who look after tresspassera on their immediate linos. The detective «ystem on a Urg-e scale was first introduosd on tho Pennsylvania linos, and an official of therofcd In speaking of tho service rendered by the detective force said: ••This department has been In opor- ation for a great many years, but not until recently was the territory divided up among the detectives. Now there is a secret service man who is given a stretch of road covering about sixty miles. Before this division system was adopted the detectives were detailed to certain points along the roads. Very often our work Is light, and again It may probably be extremely fatiguing and put physical endurance to a severe test. It is not very pleasant to be obliged to climb around among cars which stand in the yard on a dark night to prevent pilfering or vagrants from stealing rides on trains. If a freight wreck occurs anywhere along the line the detective In that division Is at once Informed of the fact, and roaches the grouod as soon as possible. If a oar of merchandise has been smashed to pieces he If supposed to guard It from being pilfered until is reloaded. Then In case B car Is broken open while standing on a siding and the contents stolen, tbe detective takes up his quarters in the neighborhood and watches for the culprits to turn up again. If they do he nabs them, and If not he begins to hunt for a clew to the first theft. It is a fact that juries very seldom find defendants guilty when arrested at tho Instance of a railroad company. This is probably due to the widely existing prejudice afalnst railroad corporations. Our evidence against a trespasser must be of tbe strongest character In order to win tho case, stronger, In fact, than would be necessary to convict a prisoner arrested under other circumstances," PENNSYLVANIA'S INCHEASED MILEAGE. During 1893 more new mileage was added to the Pennsylvania Road than for several years. By the purchase of th»'Vandftlia the Pennsylvania company secured a valuable addition to its system, getting control of the line to St. Louis. Tbe purchase also secured for it the control of tbe Terre Haute & Logansport and the Terre Haute & Peorla Tbe Pennsylvania likewise acquired the ownership of a minority of th« stock of the Toledo, Ptorift & Western, connecting the PUtsburg, Cincinnati, Chicago & St. Louis with the Burlington & Quinoy,aline of seventy two miles,and other Western lines. The statement is made that negotiations are pending *lth tho Q >incy "for such joint ownership and management of this property BS win be to the mu'ual Interest of both companies, and enable them to take advnntage of its Import ant geographic*! position." The Cleveland & Marietta is another line which was aoqu red during the year, and the • xpectatloo. is that through it the Pennsylvania will get a firmer hold on the ooal traffic destined to Toledo and tho Sute of Michigan. The aggregate of the.e acquisitions is 965 miles. They were considered necessary to the protection of the Interests of tbe western lines of the Pennsylvania, and the annual report says It wan deemed more advisable to secure their control by direct pur- chate than through lease. Pan Hindle engine 484 has been run io the ibop for a thorough overhauling Passenger rates to Cv'lforola points' are lower DOW than they were ever before The fare from Chicago is |30 and adding ihe fare from bore to Chicago. |3 50 mikes a total of $33 50. TbUuf couree Is for one way only. Ii is claimed that there are more old employes on ihe pay roll of the Vandalta tban on anv O'her lle« of equal mileage in the country. A umber of tb*m have been working for the road for thirty year» while 'a lev helped to build tbe read *nd are stl'l employed on it B-weotljria engineer who hM been onnooted with the llae for thirty-eight jeara wa» discharged (or intoxication. President W. R. MoKeen of the Vandalis Is somewhat Improved In health but Is not yet considered out of danger. On the advice of hla physicians be intend! to go to Florida to recuperate as BOO a as he gets a little stronger. From various parts of the country comer the report that tramps are taking 1 possession of freight trains, and being In the majority refused to be ousted. A largo number of them are working- towards Massllon, Ohio, whore they Intecd joining tbo army of Coxey, the Populist crank, nnd march to Washington. Freight business on tbe Pan Handle Is so heavy that not etough serviceable engines are on hand to haul tha volume of traffic. In the local yards there are three trains to one available engine in spite ol the fact that everything that can turn a wheel la sent out. In view of this fact it Is hoped that tho employes of tho shops will soon bo restored to full time. A press despatch from Anderson says: Spencer Shelby and John Clapper, leaders of tho Clapper gang of box car thieves arrested at Munclo several weeks ago, were arraigned before Judge Ellison In tho circuit court today and pleaded guilty to the charge of robbing Pan Handle, Big Four, Midland and L, E & W. cars. Judge Ellison suspended sentence until he had beard the testimony In the cases of Bill Fields and Lorn Bebee, two of their accomplices. Fields will be tried tomorrow and Bobee Thursday. The history of the gang Is well known through the gas belt where they bavo operated for years, stealing- thousands of dollars' worth of merchandise placed In the hands of the railroad companies for ehipmaot. Along the lines of the Baltimore & Ohio and tho Pennsylvania tbe em- ployes have organized themselves to do temperance work and are accomplishing, It Is stated, much good. In railroading probably more lhan any other line of work the mec have more temptations, and the fa< t that these employes have shown by thtlr efforts a wish to elevate themselves Is looked upon by the higher officiate as very commendatory. On such systems as the above named tbe dignity and high standing of the officials has done much to inspire similar feeline In employee, and the promotion ot mon who desire to elevate themselves morally U being recognized by the officials. A drunken trainman or switchman Is now seldom heard of, and If one If so foolish ai to get In such condition he Is dismissed without ceremony. The best feature of this statement, says a railway official, is that the brother hoods stand by tbe road which dismissed a man for using intoxicating liquors. _ Real nutate Trannfert. i, rt of transfers of real estate In CUM count) reported by Frank a Wlpperroan abstractor oJ titles, eoDTejrancer and notarr poDllo, Insurance and lonn went, titles to real estate examined and dpfect.ye titles perfected.

Thi; Tulimul rea.ls: "T cso four arc aecomiUxl us dead—the bliml.lhe leper, the poor ami the childless." A sinsrular fuel in conni-otioii with the disease of leprosy is Unit, ;ilthoug-h this terrible scourge hiissUlked abroad throughout the known wnrld, and jius gathered its thousands of victims since the earliest historic times, still, even under the searchini? ffhiro of the liffht of modern medical science, no sure and complete remedy has us yet been discovered. A curious custom in voirne about thirty years ago among- the Fiji Islanders was well known in Australia at the time. It seems the natives were wont to endeavor to euro the victims of leprosy by the smoke of the plant sinu- gapa (E.\coocoria ugallocha). Not even those who had been poisoned by handling- the deadly juice of this deadly plant could form any adequate conception of the tortures endured and the heroism displayed by a Fijian who voluntarily submitted himself to trying the cure of his leprosy by the smoke oJ the Binugiiffa. The patient, usually already half dead with tho ravages of the fearful malady, as a last resort was taken to an empty bouse and stripped of every article of clothing 1 . His skin was rubbed ail over with the green leaves and ho was then buried in them. A lire was kindled in tho center of the room and a, few pieces of the siuuffuga wood laid on it- As soon as the black smoke began to rise the leper was bound hand and foot and a ropo was fastened to his heels-, by means of which he was drawn up over the fire, with his head about fifteen inches from the ground. The door closed, his friends retired a short distance and the victim was left to shout and cry and plead while suffocating from the intense steam and smoke. He was often left there to enduro this agony for hours, and finally he fainted away. When his relatives considered it time to interfere, the fire was removed, his entire body scraped from head to foot, and gashes cut into the flesh, from which the blood poured in streams. He was then lowered from his uncomfortable position and laid on mats to await the rssult. In many cases it meant life and restoration to health, but in some cases the constitution was not vigorous enough to endure tho terrible ordeal, or the disease had fi-ained too strong a hold -upon the sufferer, and death rnleased him from his tortures.—N.
