SOME PATHETIC APPLICATION'S. That an idea may be gleaned of what pathetic cases of destitution aro met, a few are hero presented: Caroline Peal, a comely little womau, lives at -140 Hickory street. Her husband has been sick ana only ahlo to woru at ono times for seven year. They have hve chil dren, none of whom are old eunugh to work, except a bov who earns ol) conts a day about three timos a week in tho mines. Two of the children are sick with measles.

From the Icy North to Land of Flowers and P.op'tual Youth. A dainty novelette entitled "Snow balls to Oranges," and written by Helen K. Ingram, has recently been issued by the New Florida Short Line, which is composed of the Pennsylvania railroad, the Richmond and Danville railroad aud the Florida Central and Peninsular railroad, the popular route to the south. It is the story of a young man who for years was considered his uncle's heir, hut finds on his death that the $2,000,000 loft him is only a trust aud that it is his duty to search for the roal heir. lie decidos that if the unpleas ant errand wore done ut all it were well dono quickly, consequently takes the New Florida Short hue from New York, the land of snowballs, to Florida, the region of warm suusiiins and oranges. Hie travels from New York to the south, where he expects to find the missing owner of his uncle's mil lions, are vividly described. The beau ties of tho country through which this most excellent line passes are dwelt upon, and the glorios of tho Piedmont seetiou given a prominent place. The hero visits the Interesting cities of Columbia, Augusta and Savannah. He saunter among the pines of health -giving Ashuvillo.spends a day at Aiken, goes to Brunswick, to Fernandina, to Jacksonville, to Tallahassee and to Ocala. So absorbed, in fact, does he bocome in the charms of the country that he all but forgets the object of his visit until one duy in Tampa a name dispels the glamour of tho place and seen and stern realities force them selves upon him; he continues his search and succeeds in finding the rightful heir, or more properly, heiress, whom ho, of course, marries, aud ever afterwards blesses th road that led him so safely to a wife, fortune and lifelong friends. The tale is prettily told, and is made doubly absorbing by the delightful il lustrations of the always interesting South that crowd its pages, and the lainty binding of white and gold, le SOrated with Snowballs and Oranges adds to its value. It is a book well worth reading, and all who want a cony of it cau secure oua by addressing . S. ihweatt, ivsstern raetetunr Agent, Richmond A: Danville R. R . 21) Broadway. N. Y , or J L.
