They are not placed as in a "eame." but they are all- important just the same in "Tiddledy- wink." A "Tiddledy-wink" social is like this: i invite a crowd to your house, hav- ing previously secured a "lay-out." You clear the parlor of chairs, and on the big center table you place a heavy wool- en cover. In the center you place a small that they use in saloons for whisker straights is just the thing. Then you deal out the chips. There twenty-four in number, and about the size of a nickel. Four persons play. They jjet six chips apiece. In the hand of each person is another and larger chip. The six chips are placed in a row in front of each player, and then number one presses down hard on tiie edge of one of his small chips with Jthe large one and tries to "flip it into the small key K'ass in the center of the table. H looks easy. But it isn't. Well, you go down or chips uutil somebody ho? all had in glass. Then it's his Then everybody else laughs, th'-y all try if over again. There are several tricks in "Tiddledy- wink." For instance, if jouandsnnip- body else are in the game, and you one of your chips out near glass and the other fellow gets one on top of your chip, then is a prisoner and can't "flip" it without first moving and move yon can make wi h man's chip to place it in tlv thereby pushing him ahead on" So when you play "Tid- you will play it before long the jrreat idr-a is to other chip prisoner, and then Vyforf he can pet own chip the ho must gently lif? in ly-'wink' a It ir fnlir a." in clover, and i? that the country t'> ?tand a of it. 1 r-anh ttie name "Ti Idlf mixfvl up with thf tin, and IRON AH1ERIES- Notiv, of Hit- Iu lliiti icliiity.

If the lire, which consumed some of the Western New York Pennsylvania railroad property near the corner of Louisiana and Exchange streets night had burned down the shanty which reives as a passenger Btation. the loss would have been less to the load, and the greater gain to the public, says the Buffalo Courier. The longest trip probably ever made on a. hand-car was recently completed by J. C. Thomas, roadmaster of the In- tQruutional Great Northern railroad, who traveled the entire length of the road, a distance of nearly 300 miles, the journey occupvfng seven consecutive days. "The objVct of the trip was to ob- tain particulars for his annual report concerning the amount cf roud material on hand and the amount 7ibceo.-ary for the comirig year.

With the straight axle now in use. when a car is going around a curve, the outside wheel only slides along the track, throwing great friction on the other wheel. The inven- tion is designed to obviate this by allow- ing one wheel to turn faster than tiie other.

Jt is cahed the Quceii Ciry .Mutual Beneri! society. Al- fred E formerly H pruachtr in WestfifM and later on euitor of the Wejtfield Repuhlican. is president. The attractive feature of the scheme is the ease with which an investor gets by paying an initiation of SB. 00, and S1.25 in monthly clues., "The says the prospectus, "is simple, reason- ahle and economical." A member pays the tuition fee and in advance and every month: so soon as has been collected from members that amount is paid rut to the holder of cer- tificate No.'l, and the next paid in goes to No. 2. Thus far plain but deter- mine who No. 1 is, as it about 1.000 had invested anil no record of tbe order in which certificates were taken had been kept. The treasurer says that when 951 certificates were takVn and it became necessary to decide No. 1 and No. 2. the names were put in a drawer and drawn. It so happened that a mer- chant who had invested in ten tickets came out No. 1 and No. 2, so he got his and the rest wait. Here comes in the lottery feature: even Louis- iana could not improve ujon it. Every fortunate receiver of is re- quired to take out a new certificate and pay a year's dues in advance. On the face of thr scheme there seems to be no provision for the pay of officers, etc., but then there is the hope that a large nuua- her. after paying for a time, will drop] out.
