And now comcs thc annonncc-
ment that beer is to he macIe in
tablct form. This is productive I
of great possibilities and will 1
appeal strongly to thc man who
likcs a "schnit" and docs not
want it known , for all that will I
be ncccssary to do will be to
swallow a Itablet and as it dis.
solvcs the foamin proccss will
be inagurated in hIS stomach and
the sensation produed be very
exhlliarating. If he wants a
"mug" of beer , two tablcts and
three for I a "schooner. " Or he
" f - - , can carry thcm in his pocket ,
; dissolve them whenever he finds
't ' : water , pnt his foot on the lower
J wire of a ncarby fcnce and , as hc
: , ' drinks the foaming Huid , imagine
he's stauding at a gilded bar , the
sky and landscape a bevel plate
For many years there seemcd
to be about as little da.nger in
traveling on the cars as in staying -
ing at home , but in the past year
the conditions changcd , aud there
were a frightful number of ( lis-
astrolts collisions. Something is
wrong and it behoovcs HIe railroad - i
road companies to delve deep toi
right it and get back to cou-
ditions which existed a few years
ago - before their wholcsale
slaughtcr of passengers com-
menced-and is be111g continued.
Many rcasons are allegcd for
thc numerous railway accidents
of recent years which have been
attended with a frightful loss of
life , but one thing is certain they
cannot be laid to the new railroad

He says . land has doubled in value
