Such a move, however, would be a
grave one. It is pointed out that to

legislation by congress is needed to
carry out the plans of this country for
the exposition. About $1,200,000 has
been appropriated for the expenses of

An Aotomoblle Kail Car.
Chicago, Sept. 11. The Illinois
Central is experimenting with an in
spection car having a motor run by
gasoline. Ttius far, the experiments
have been eo successful that it is quite
. probable that the road will adopt this
description of car on all its divisions.
Several railroad men have expressed
the belief that tho "automobile of the
rail" in a short time will come into
such general use that the ha-d work
ing inspection cars will be little more
than legacies of tho past.
The car with which the Illinois Cen
tral is experimenting has an average
ppeod of twenty-five mile an hour, but
it is capable of covering the rails
much more-speedily than that. One
of the inspectors of the road is said to
ave gone seventy-five miles in two
hours. A gallon of gasoline ordinarily
will run the car more than eeventy
flve miles acd there is a provision for
carrying four gallons, or enough for
an unbroke.n run of 300 miles.

Two deaths have been reported dur

Lunacy Increasing In Knglaml.
Lunacy shows an alarming growth in
England. Statistics just published give
105,086 as the total of certified lnnatic.-,
an increase of 3,114 over the preceding
year. This is the greatest an-snal in
crease recorded by over 1,000. The
rate of recovery also shows a backward
movement, from 33.81 per cent to 3G.S7.
Agricultural laborers provide the larg
est proportion of lunatics, attributable
to a low standard of life and the use
of strong, cheap Indian teas. Clerks
furnish the next greatest proportion of
lunatics. Here also hard, wearing, un
derpaid work and Insufficient food is
the leading cause. It Is contended that
the increase In lunacy is more appar
ent than real, and is due chiefly to the
law regulating the notification of lu
natics, but experts agree that the stress
of modern life is the prime factor in
