It will be remembered by the
readers of tho Journal that some

city a visit about this time last fall,
in a special car named the "City of
Worcester," chartered and fitted up
especially for the accommodation of
the party, having all tbo comforts
and conveniences that a lavish ex
penditure of money and ingenuity
could devise aud arraugo iu u large
palaco car, which is in reality a
palace on wheels. The same car
now stands upon tho U. P. side
track. An additional feature is
added to the outfit this season, and
consists of an extra car for tho dogs

of equipment, etc. Tho snow storm
of Oct. 15th, struck them while out,
and as pleasure was one of tho main
objects with the hunters, tho affair
was not looked upon in the light of
a complete success. Tho car is
chartered until the 19th of this
month, and wo are informed by one
of the party, that if the gamo in
