From Pottstown, Pa., coini'B tho re
port of "an astonishing oxhihition of
girlish charms which fnrniflhed a theme
for an innnoiiHo lot of gossip. A camp
of tho l. O. S. of A. gave a henetlt en
tertainment, tho chief feature of which

'nightgown drill.' ThiH drill wan just

two, and then, from tho wingH cf. tho
Btage, emerged a vision of maiden loveli
ness. A pretty girl, of interesting
years, walked slowly heforo tho foot
lights. Her oidy robe, so far as tho
charmed spectators could Bee, was a
whito Mowing gown of the simplest
make. Tho soft material clung nicely
to tho prettily rounded shoulders.
Those delicate curves of tho young
woman's physique seemed all tho more
entrancing beneath this bewitching
garl). Her hair fell Iooho upon her
shoulders. Her snow-whito feet and
ankles twinkled beneath tho tllmy lace
at tho bottom of the gown.
Hardly had tho audience recovered
its breath before another girl, dressed
just as tho first, appeared. Then
another and another, until seventeen
bewitching girls, witli loose thing hair
and twinkling feet, were upon tho stage.
Each young lady carried a lighted
candle. They marched back and forth
across tho stage and performed various
evolutions. Thoy refused to respond to

Next to the world's fair, nil our
foreign friends want to see Niagara
Falls, and in the minds of many,
Niagara Falls is placed llrst. One of
tho thst questions they ask an Ameri
can either at homo or aboard is about
Niagara, but to many of us Niagara
Falls is too near. Were it on tho other
side of tho world, thousands of A meiican
globe tiotteis would hasten theie, who
pass it by now because thoy can go
thoro any time.
The Michigan Central has made it,
perhaps, too easy of access, for its
through trains fiom Chicago to New
York and Boston run diiectly hy and in
full view of the great cataiact, and
thoso passing hy daylight Btop live
minutes for passengers to vlow tho Falls.
Tho wise traveller however will stop
over there as long as Ids time will per
mit to view tho beauties and tho gran
deur of tho falls under dilTcicnt aspects
and fiom ditioront points of viow. The
longer he stops tho moio ho will tlnd to
repay him for whatever expenditure of
time and money ho incurs.
They were talking on tho rear platform
of the car, when one suddenly turned to
the other with:
"Woro you over in California?"
"Great country, Isn't It?"
"Lot me sell you some property there."
"I was about to propoto tho same
thing to you. Where Is your property?"
"About fourteen miles from Uliuilt
"Minn is just fourteen. What did yon
"About $S(X) per acre."
"So did 1. Did you buy for an orango
"So did I. Any hill on your land?"
"Vch- all hill."
"So is mine. You paid 800 per acre,
and ou'll take about $2T?"
"So will I. Ileautiful climate, isn't
"Then I can't sell you?"
"Not today. Never told any one you
got left, did you?"
"Nor 1, either. Always claim to have
made $20,000 on my deal. Good day."
Luxury of Trine I.
"Hello, Jack! .iiisteomo down town?"
"lieenuso you look so fresh and trim
as though just out of a bandbox."
"Well, that is natural enough, wlion
you consider that, instead of just com
ing down town, I havo just got into town
after a trip east."
"Hut that generally uses a man up,
and gives him that tired feeling, what
with cramped quartern and jarring and
worrying him almost to death."
"I know that is sometimes tho case.
Hut frequently it depends upon what
road you ride over. There aro roads and
roads. I mado my journey by tho
Michigan Central, and thoy havo such
perfection in appliances for comfort,
such discipline among tho employes,
that tho annoyances aro small indeed,
and tlie couuort equal to that in ones
own home, unless it is an exceptionally
luxurious and well-appointed one. Try
tho Michigan Central, 'the Niagara
Fidls Routo,' next time you wish to go
east. You'll tlnd it so." Arkunsaw

For St. Louis

ticket olllce 1201 O
Pacific route. City
J, FrnuclH Payne, a smooth shaven,
dark-complexioned joung man, very
nattily attired in a blue cheviot suit,
left the Union Paeillc ticket olllce
on Broadway, Oakland, Cal., just after
dark one day ret cull) and walking
away down to the railroad yards steal
thlly hoarded a fieight train which
forty lnlnuteH later started for Sacra
mento. Ho walked down to tho yards
hecauso ho couldn't ride. Ho was pos
sessed of only 1 cent, and on that he and
a companion mimed Sydney had lived
seventy-eight days and travelled .'1.8(H)
miles, and on the same cent he is com
pelled to live twenty two dajs more and
to travel 2.21X1 miles.
Payne is a Chicago newspaper man
who in the interest of a Chicago journal
and for u wager of85,(HX) is striving to
travel (1,01X1 miles in 1(H) das on a
capital of one cent.
Just seventy-nine days ago he and
Sydney left Chicago.
Tlie conditions of the wager were
that the combined capital for the trip
should not he more than 1 cent; that
they could not travel on tickets or
passes and that they should stop one
day in certain large cities.
Payne still htm the 1 cent piece that
they started with, hut it is now polished
to a bright golden hue from contact
with his pocket. Hut his companion,
Sydney, iH not with him. Thoy alighted
from a Hying freight at Los Angeles,
and in the confusion incident to an
accelerated roll down an embankment
ind their subsequent landing in a ditch,
Sydney broke his leg and Is now living
with some degree of comfort, notwlth
standing his broken limb.
The journey of the two young men
to the coast has not been such a harsh
one as might he imagined. Judging
from the neatness of Mr. Payno'H rai
ment and the absence of grime from his
hands and face, ho has not been obliged
to rido very far on hreako-beams or
conceal himself under the seats of pas
senger coaches or do any of the things
that tramps and professional "hobos"
are supposed to do. Hut ho doesn't
care to tell just how he manages to get
along. Mr. Payne expects to write a
good deal about his trip, and ho does
not want to havo his material made
stale by premature publication. He
admitH that his journey bo far, except
for the accident to companion, was
rather enjoyable. Hi. iys he has had
plenty to eat, but ho will not tell how
he manages to persuade people to feed
him, and to feed him well, too, or how
ho induces conductors to let him ride on
their trains just as though ho had a
Ho hinted that ho had some mysteri
ous scheme by which tho proprietors of
hotels were to he advertised, and he
said that they were all more than anxi
ous to feed and shelter him in return
for the benelltfl they will derive.
Aftor leaving Chicago they proceeded
to New Orleans by means of freight
trains and obliging train hands. They
were there honored by the famous
Olympic Club, which ten.iered them a
banquet. At this banquet they met
Vice-President Tliorne of the Texas and
Pacific Railway, the young mail who
rumor says is going to marry Miss
Helen Gould. Ho offered them passes
over his lines, which they were com
pelled to refuse, but he told them they
would havo no trouble in getting over
the road, and strangely enough they
did have no trouble.
From Now Orleans thoy went to tho
City of Mexico by way of Laredo and
thence to Los Angeles by way of El
Paso. Down in Mexico it was rather
moro difficult. Payne does not under
stand much Spanish and he found it
rather hard work sometimes to make
the people undeistand that ho wanted
to eat. That is, it was no great task to
let them know that he was hungry, hut
they could not comprehend from his
signs and imperfect talk why they
should feed him.
