It la nine miles in length, and is prob-ihly us unique as any ou the globe. The distance is not so astonishing, except when the 4iiu^e of ton inches is considered. I n the short distance traversed by tho pigmy tt crosses eleven Btreams, with bridges from live to thirty-five feet in height. The rails �i-eigh but twenty pounds to the yard, about ihe rizo of tbostt used in tho mines of Missouri mil Illinois. The cars and engines are con trueted so as to Ik* very near the ground, in-.uriug greater safety. The cars are provided with single scats on each side of tho aisle. Tho cur ithelf weighs but four tons, tho --.eight of an ordinary car being twenty to uveuty-six tous. The engines, without the under, weighs seven tons, and runs with two Mssenger or freight cars at the rate of twenty miles an hour. There is a smaller railroad than this in tho United States-the one in Bucks county, Pa., but it is only kept as an 'xpensive toy by a rich farmer who has made a Iortuno out of oil.-Albany Argus.

It ui getting to be a common practice with a certain class of women to buy rather large 'lrefes patterns, and after making up the dress and finding they have a yard or two left over to bring us the remnant aud ask for the money on it. Tho other day we bad a line of Ljoods which we cut up Into twelve yard drees patterns and sold by tbe pattern. One of our customers, a woman iu very comforts-hie circumstances, came In aud bought six patterns. A few days afterward she returned two pieces, with two and a half yards hi each, and wanted the money for them-or, rather, she wanted credit for them, for, as it happened, slie had an account with us, and this enabled us to trace the transaction. She had to be confronted with the books, though, aud convinced that we knew exactly what she had bought before she gave op the attempt to economize at our expense. The worst thing about this overreaching business is that It is practiced almost exclusively by women who are not driven to it hy poverty.-Interview in Philadelphia Inquirer. About the Care of Lamps. Don't "put up" with a wretchedly poor light, even if you use lamps; and don't keep them within reach of the children. For the obtaining of the flj*st, get good burners, even if you have cheap lamps. For the second, fasten all lamps in brackets as far us possible above the little ones' beads. Chandeliers can be hud in beautiful designs for lamps as well as gas, and at just as wide a range of prices. All lamps should be filled in the daytime and at a regular hour. They must not be too full; they must be very carefully wiped off, Tho globes and chimneys should be kept clean and clear. Tho wicks are best trimmed by simply rubbing off the charred surface. Tbe light Is often affected by tho holes in the burner becoming clogged. This can bo remedied by boiling the burners in a strong solution of washing soda.-Good Housekeeping. Court Duy fn Kentucky.

Half a century ago the man who was in a hurry to go to Washington or New York had to content himself with a slow going stago coach that jogged him over the rood at a pace that would exasperate a business man of today to the verge of insanity. Nowadays, however, a man can whirl away to elthor city in a wheeled palace at n speed and with a degree of comfort at a cost that never eu-tered tho most fanciful dreams of travelers fifty years ago. And if anybody is in too much of a hurry to waft n few hours for a regular train it is un easy matter to procure a sj�ecial train and be dragged away at a hair lifting rate of speed. Special trains a fow years ngo wore a luxury to bo enjoyed only by railroad officials In cases of emergency or by parties who cored to pay extra fare and mado their arrangements with the railroad company some days in advanco. With the development of railroading science even the most crowded railway is now able to seud out a special on a few momenta' warning. And these trains are usually within tbe reach of any man who does not hesitate ever a hundred or two hundred dollars, so that it is only a matter of money that stands between a man and the fulfillment of the most pressing engagement. The result most desired and Bocured by special train is the avoidance of delay through loss of connection at juuetion point*. To the matt who has need for a special train it is not so essential that he should outstrip tho time of a fast express as that he should be able to start at once without waiting au hour or two for the next regularly scheduled train. Most of the emergency trains are run on this basis, aud their value is usually based upon their ability to st.'irt upon a few moments' notice. HEADY IN BIX MINUTES. Au illustration of this character is furnished by a well known Philadelphia lawyer who bad occasion to visit Lancaster upon legal business of great importance. Ho made an effort to catch the Pennsylvania railroad train leaving Broad street station nt 2:40 p. but missed it by a few minutes. The next train did not leave until 4:40, and would not bring him into Lancaster until 7:43 o'clock, which would bo too late for the transaction of his business on that day. It was a case of urgent necessity, and important interests were staked upon his arrival in Lancaster, so he applied for a special train. In six minutes from the time that he made his application a car and a locomotive were at his disposal, ho willingly paid the $75 that was asked, and was whirled away to Lancaster in time to fulfill his engagement. When Gen. Sheridan lay in Washington suffering with his last illness Dr. William Pepper made frequent visits to bis bedside, and usually traveled by special train over the Pennsylvania railroad. Most of his trips were taken at night, when the tracks were comparatively clear of passenger trains, aud he generally gave ample notice to the railroad people. On one occasion he sent a messenger to Broad Street station to ask upon how short notice he could have a train if he should want it later that night, and the messenger had hardly left the station with the reply that tweuty minutes would be ample notioe, when Dr. Pepper himself appeared in the station and said that he desired to start Immediately. Tbe crew that bad been kept waiting his instructions had just been sent home, but another was quickly found, and thirteen minutes biter Dr. Pepper was whizzing away toward Washington. One of the beat examples ot quick work that has been done in this line was furnished by the Philadelphia and Reading railroad, when a member of the banking firm of Thomas A. Biddie & Co. made use of a special train to deliver several hundred shores of stock of the Western National bank of New York hi "that city. It was necessary, in order to make good the sale of tho stock, to get it to New York in a hurry, aud, on twenty minutes' notice, the Beading Railroad company furnished a car aud engine for the purpose. The flfty-flve miles between Wayne Junction and Bound Brook were covered in fifty-three minutes, and tbe run from Ninth aud Green streets to Jersey City, a distance of ninety inUeB, was made in 101 minutes. THREADING TBTC CltOWDED TKACKA, While the celerity with which special trains are made ready in case of emergency may strike uninitiated persons as something of au achievement, the start is really an insignificant element in this kind of railroadlrig. Tbe most remarkable feature Is the manner in which a special and unscheduled train is Bent out on a few moments' notice over a railway system crowded with moving trains. Before a special train can be dispatched every signal station aud operator along the line must be notistflof the coming train, Jhe number of its locomotive and tbe time upon which it Is running. Every train in the (>atb of the special in ut t be notified at the first station it reaches that there is a special train on the way, and if it is an urgent case every regular train must keep out of the way. Alt of tuU is accomplished by tbe free use of the telegraph, and it takes but a few moments to inform every signal operator, station agent and all tbe trains concerned that a special is coming. Every passenger or freight train Iu tho path of the special must keep out of the way of the coming train, and leave ample time aud distance to prevent all possibility of accident or delay to the special. On a two track line, where freight aud passenger trains use tbe same track, the freight trains are usually ordered to pull off at the first siding aud leave the track clear for tbe special, and the regular passenger trains must keep sharp watch of tbe approach of tbe special, and take a siding In ample time to allow it to pass. At each station the conductors of tbe regular trains learn of the position of tbe special behind them, and govern themselves accordingly, The cost of a special train sent out on short notice varies greatly according to the distance that Is to be run aud tbe character of tbe emergency. Wheu the service rendered is essentially of a public character, as was the case with the trains that conveyed medical attendance to Gen. Sheridan, President Garfield and in numberless similar in-'ancea, the railroads rarely make any charge. For purely personal and private business purposes tbe charges vary greatly, and there Is no fixed schedule. In the absence of any special considerations a train for New York or Washington from this city would cost auy where from $75 to ^.-Philadelphia Heoord.
