JourntlUt NlTsn, of Wllkei-Bsrre,

newipopcr man'f natural instinof, he
Htaiublad upoa big- scheme which is
now agitating certain capitalist of
Uhiclcsbinny, the details of which are
oatertalpinKly set forth in tbt Record
Tb enterprise Is nothing more nor less i has assured tbe shop men in the employ ot
than tha building of an lectrio road I the company that with the revival ol

while and It would haV. been put into I
loroe before this, were not the state
nws regulating freight trufflo prohibl- ;
tire so far as electrlo roads are con- ;
earned. Bat a beam of sunshine begins
to brighten np the hopes of the plonoers
who long to fly over the bountiful hills I
ubontjHantington valley, and it comes .
in tbe assuranoe that the next legisla- ;
rnre will grant the same privileges to
the trolley lines as are now eujoyed by
'he steam systems in the state. It is
(anerally understood that so long .
us the big railway people were kept out
of the ownership of eleetrio roads,
that their influence with the law
makers at Uarrisbarg would be '
strong enough to embarrass tbe man- ;
:igers of eleetrio roads in their efforts i
co eeenre freighting privileges, but !
jow, since it is heralded that the big j
railway comoratlons have at last got
n on the ground floor and arc carrying
,i goodly amount of stock and bonds of
the long li )es reaching out from Phlla
delphia in several directions, virtually
gridironing the territory for buudred
of miles, with a certaiuty of further
enoroaebments, the hope of getting a
law passed permitting trolley lines to
carry freight inspires the Shiokshinny
und neighboring people to renewed ef
forts. It is proposed to build tbe new
road over the spleudld turnpike, whose
excellence la traditional aud whose
views alone arc worth g olng far to see.
It wouldn't take long to lay a road
down on such a snre foundation. The
territory needs such a road, too. The
freight busineis alone would be enor
mous. The fertile farms would find
in easy and economical outlet for their
rich harvests. Its duirles would be
greatly benefited and its orchards yield
nandsume profits, Such a road would
connect at Benton with the brtnch
nteam railway there and thus augmeut
the travel to and from Shickahiuuy.
"Of course," adds Mr .Niven, "much
has been said In the past about an ex
tension of the Wilkes-Bar re and East
em road from its terminus on the west
aide of the river at this point to
, Williamsport. Al Orr, the energetic
railway prospeotor, has suggested a
route that seems feasible. His Hues go
through tbe Ice Cave district to the
headquarters of Huntington creek,
thence along the creek to connect with
the road running to .Watsontown and
VVilliamsDort. The nroject is a feasible
nna. bnt the Wilkss-Burra aud Eastern
magnates do not seem anxious to rush
it. If it were bnilt It would make a
hot competitor for travel aud traffic
with any eleetrio system, but as things
look at present, the trolley cars will
oe rushing over tbe charming hills of
iiiuntington long before the whistle of
Jany locomotive is beard in that rich,
fertile and beautiful region ef oonutry.
It may be depended on that if the
j legislature gives the freighting privl
) ieges wanted the coming winter, that
before next summer ends the electric
oars will be flying between Shlck
nhiany and Benton, with both towns
in it for all they are worth."
A Wilkes-Barre dispatch quotes Su
perintendent Law.dl.of the Lsbigh and
vVilkes-Barre Coalieompany, as having
naid that if the senate accedes to the
house's free coal bill it wilt ruin the
;oal interests in this section to suoh an
extent that the anthracite coal oper
ators of the state would be unable to
recover their markets for ten years.
The Nova Ssotia coal, he said, would
control the New England markets and
down into New York, which would
destroy the anthracite markets for all
i.tsam producing coal along the sea
- board. It will be perceived that Air.
Lawull's position ou this matter is vir
tually the sara as was that of Presi
dent William Coonell, of tbe Anthra
cite Coal Operators' association in bd
interview presented several months
ago In The Tribune,
Traffic officials are building large ex
pectations of increased tonuuge on the
end of the tariff discussion. An im
mense amount of goods has for some
time been in bond awaiting the proba
ble reduction in duties, and it will be
released for shipment as soon as the
tariff bill becomes a law. Importers
more than any other class bav been
living a hand to mouth existoncs for
nearly a year, not daring to stock up iu
i.he face of reduced duties. They will
now make up for lost time and turn
over some extremely valuable tonnage
to railroads. A sample case was the
ongagement on Tuesday of transporta
tion for $100,000 worth of silk, which
will be taken out of bond as soon as the
tariff bill goes into effept. Every day
jhows an increase ofjtbe westbound
ousiness of both eastern and western
i'oads. One eastern road is already
short of cars and has been compelled
to refuse proffered shipments. Owing
to the increase of cut rates there is no
expectation of an increase in eaetbound
uhlpments from Chicago until the close
of navigation, but westbound earnings
cire muejh more than maktog the lore
,;ood. It is the universal opinion that
Hard times for this year are past for
This curious ease is reported in the
Philadelphia Reeord: "O. W. Ken
nedy, of No. 107 North Front street,
was arraigned before Magistrate Wil
here Tuesday morning, charged by L.
P. Pennell. a clerk in the Broad street
station, with defrauding him out of $00
by the promise to secure him a posi
tion as superintendent of the Cornwall
railroad at Lebanon. When Kennedy
failed to secure the position Pennell
requested tbe return of his money.
Kennedy paid baok $10, but as the re
mainder was not forthcoming Pennell
caused Kennedy's arrest. Kennedy
claims that be spent more than the
money paid him in endeavoring to se
cure the position, The case will go
into oourt."

disappoint him by not having it cooked

evident joy iu being able to do something

I firmly believe there never was a hotel
like the hostelry there. In a general way
its design was au adaptation of the plan o'
a hencoop. Possibly a box made of grid
irons suggests more ckarly the principle o.'
its construction. It was two stories high
and contained about a baker's dozen o.'
rooms, the main one being tho'barroom Oil
course. After the framework had beet-,
finished there was perhaps halt enough
"slab" lumber to sheathe the outside o
the house, and this hud been made to servo
for exterior and interior walls, and tho
floors and ceilings besides,
Tho consequence was that a flock oJ
gig.'Mitlc canaries might have been kept in
it with propriety, but as a place of abodn
for human beiugs It compared closely with
the Jlrooklyu bridge. The queer hotel wa;i

Bnt the matter was carried before the
council of state, which promptly aunullec
the election, declaring that a "majority ol I
voles cast ' was nocessnry to elect, am!
that, as "a majority" means "tho greater
number," there could only be a mnjorlt)
where there were more than oue.
It is presumable, from this decision, thai
if two votes hud been cast for M. Uag
lieux, theso two votes would have bceL
held to constitute a majority; just as two
sheep have been said to constitute a "flock
of sheep," and two calves a "herd of
cattle. " Yo u t li 's Companion,

Yuan Mel lays groat stress ou having
dishes served direct from thu fire, w ithout
any interval, which, he says, "leaves the
same flavor with food that mildew leaves
behind iu clothes." He points out that
mnny cooks throw away, in ignorance,
sometimes the best portions; e. g., the
upper llesh of the terrapin, using ouly the
lower part mi rouutl, which he calls "the
skirt." Also, the back of the samlle, tiblng
only the belly. In liko manner, he observes
that, although the yolk Is thu best part of
an egg, no oue who understands tho art of
rutins ever thinks ef separating it from
tho white. Temple Bar.
Iluy Choirs lu New York and Vicinity.
In 1609 there were but three boy choirs
in Xuw York In Trinity church, Trinity
chapel and St. John's. After four or tive
years, th8 next boy choir was organ
ized t hrough the exertions of Mr. Hatch,
the banker, for Christ ohurch on Fifth
avenue, whioh Is now demolished. After
an interval of .seven or eight years, boy
choirs seemed to spring up In all direc
tions. The ritualistic movement in tile
Episcopal church, no doubt had muoh to
do with the introduction of this kind of
Jimmi, kiiwm,ii in nig iivi, iuuuu
in what are called the "low" and "ovan
gelical" branches of the church, and oven
in some nf tbe -;rr:irlnn churches.

BolleU About Palming.
The earlier Christian writers believed,
according to Draper, that painting and
sculpture were interdicted iu the Scrip
tures, aud were consequently evil arts. It
may be questioned if this opinion did not
have K.i root In tbe Idea of primitive peo
ples that the art of drawing was an Instru
ment of sorcery, by means of which one ac
quired tbe power to act upon a persou.
Mussulmans still have a horror of Images,
aud the Koran forbids haviug one's por
trait made and possessing any Imago at all.
