So rapidly are the new railroads being
built across the continent that in a short
time there will not be less than five sepa

hope that they will not all be controlled
by one company, or else we wont be much
better oil' than we are now. To the old

The fact that this Christmas 101 l 011
Sand ay gives occasion to exercise one
self in some curious calculations . Some
one who has a taste for such matters pre
sents the following statements that are
not generally known: The falling of
Chr'stmas 011 Sunday takes place four
t'mes in every 28-years, after the expira
tion of every 5, 0, 11 and 5 years respect
ively. Take, for instance, the year 1859
as a starting point. In that year Christ
mas came 011 Sunday. The succeeding
twenty-eight years during which Christ
mas has and will come upon Sunday are
1864,'70,'81 and 'B7. Since we last celebrat
ed a Christmas Sabbath before the pres
ent 11 years have elapsed. In six years we
will have another, and there will not
again be an eleven year skip until that
between 1910 and 1921. Owing to 1900
not being an actual leap year, though
divisible by the figure 4, from 1802 to
1910 Christmas (and, of course, New
Year also) falls on Sunday regularly ev
ery six years. This calculation ma';es
an iteresting centre-table amusement.
A statement of the anthracite coal trade
shows the production for the year to be
about twenty-eight million and live hun
dred thousand tons. There may be a
week's suspension in January, but after
that, it is thought, that the demand will
be such ;is to make work imperative.
Thirty million tons is calculated as the
production of ISB2, and with this view
preparations are being actively pursued
in all the anthrrcite regions.
There are now three hundred and lift}'
prominent Irishmen in jail, but the tale of
agrarian outrages in Ireland does not de
crease, although there are now fifty thou
sand armed men in the country.
Game must be scarce in the vicinity of
Towanda. A celebrated landlord and a vigi
lant police officer went out hunting one day
last week. After traveling all day, without
success, so some of the knowing friends of
the parties say, they went into a farmer's
pigeon-roost and knocked down a half dozen
of the birds with a club and departed for
home. Go to the filwell House, or ask DIM
MOCK, if you want to get further information
on the subject. Ilere the brave hunters hive
away of going to one of the meat markets
and buying game to take home with them
when they fail to bag any. They dont pro
pose to run any chances with indignant far
mers since the time the boys shot that pea
cock for a wild turkey.— Athens Gaz.
