"All aboard for Fergus Falls , Moor-

which echoes through the union depot nt
St. PanI , Minn , , wo gather up onr re
spective grip-sacks and board the north
bound train of tbo St Paul , Minneapo
lis & Manitoba railroad for A trip across
the etato ot Minnesota and danrn the
fftmona Bed river valley. And if tin
eastern man hns an idea that the passen
ger Equipment of those far northwestern
rends Is Inferior to that of his own Bee-
lion of country , ho has only to take first *
olaas passage on either the Northern
Pacific or St. Pant , Minneapolis & Man
itoba railroads to discover his mistake ,
During the winter nil first-class cars are
prnridod with double windows and are so
well .boated that with the mercury 20
below zero the traveler Is as comfortable
ns thongh seated in his own parlor.
Bat whllo discussing the car service
wo have reached and crossed the Missis
sippi river and.ora in the city of Minne
apolis , a city of floar , lumber , and Now
England people. The writer visited
Minneapolis four years ago and in writIng -
Ing to an eastern friend elated that "this
: ity lisa now 45,000 inhabitants , and
with characteristic western boast claims
that she will contain 100,000 people be
fore the year 1890. " She has in this .
f oar of Rroco , 1885 , nlro&dy reached that
igure , and the ton mtloa which original-
y separated St. Anthony Falls from St. .
Paul no longer exist , and the southern
Imlt of Minneapolis joins the northern
Imit of St. Paul. The growth of theao
wo cities finds no parallel in this conn-
ry of rapid upbuilding and half a mil-
ion people will doubtless dwell within
heir limits before the closa of the * <
ucsont century. A glance at the map
rill shew vho magnificent stretch of
ountry tributary to these cities , through
rhoao portals flow a largo share of the
rade of Jha great northwest. The value
if the buildings erected in St. Paul dur-
og the year 1884 was nearly $18,000- ,
100 , exceeding Chicago by several mil-
ions , This increase in population and

region of beautiful lakes , woods , well-
illed farms and thrifty towns. Look

xrger ones are shown. There la not
oem enough on an ordinary sized map

ends whoso waters tparkle throughout
bis sylvan land like diamonds sot with
moialda. This park region covering the
entral and larger part of the state In-
ludes within its limits 7000 lakes. It is
mphatically a sportsman paradise. To
be man who trampi six or eight miles
mong the hills of Now England after a
czsn or so two-ounce trout the expert-
nco ot rowing but a few rods on ono of
beso lakes and killing twenty or thirty

ixury. Fish abound in all the watorsany BG

tch them , and it requires but little pis- tobi
atonal skill for successful sport. That bi
rinco among game fish , the black bus , ol
f course cannot always bo caught by an fa
nskllled angler , but other varieties are 01
tontifnl and easily caught. Wore wo lapi

At Barnetvllle wo are out of this pic- iucl )
nretque region and strike the fatuous clQ
ted river valley , the land of No. I lurd clai
cheat and rich prairies stretching array ai
In an nnbrokon level ss far as the eye c\n
see , save where a fringe of timbo morks
the coarse of some creek , It ia land
where a furrow can bo plowed for many
miles without taking the plow ont of the
around , a land through which a river
flows "down" north , a land reaching
from Brcckonrldgo , Minn. , on the south
to Winnipeg , Man , on the north , cm *
bracing over 150,000 sqnaro miles , nearly
every aero of which is tillable probably
a larger area of fertile productlvo land
than can bo found together In any other
country , At Moorhoad wo cross the
tracks of the Northern Pacific railroad.
This ambitious city of about 4,000 inhab
itants situated on the east bank of the
[ led river styles itself the Key city , whllo
forgo , Dak. , on the west bank aspires to
jo the metropolis of the far northwest.
This is not really the far northwest ,
'or a mile post placed beiido of the
Northern Pacific track within a few rods
of the Red rlvor Informs us that Port
land , Or. , Is 1042 miles distant , so wo
are not quite half way cross the contin
ent. Wo have only to piss through Da
kota , Montana , Idaho and Washington
territories to roach the Pacific ocean , but
these are mighty tracts of land wherein
wo "hear the tread of millions yet to
bo. " Moorhoad and Fargo are situated
at the gate-way to the rich section of
country known as the Rod river valley ,
and In this early stage of tholr develop
ment , possess many of the modern con-
vcnlonclos and equipments of an eastern
city ef 50,000 Innabltnnte. The Fargo
electric light shines down from its tall
tower on a prosperous city of nearly 10-
000 people and Its farther rays reach
across the two handsome iron bridges and
faintly light the western suburbs of
Moorhoad. Theao cities have gotten
bvor the "bsom" of 1881-2 and naturally
thcro are some mourners who bewail the
leralao of that Inflated porlod. Many of .
.ho real-ostato speculators- these who
: amo attracted by the chance to make
noney without working'far It , luvo gone
o seek pastures nonr , whllo thoao remain-
ng are the ones whoso faith In this sec-
Jon of country holds good and who will
eap when the next harvest comes.
Wo are now in latitude 47 degrees
lorth , on the same parallel as Quebec
.nd the northern part of Maine , and
nklng ono consideration with another
ho climate of this section is about ai
.no aa any portion of the United States
an boast. The winters , to bo sura , are
wo or three weeks longer than in Masaa-
husotts or Now York and the mercury m
pt to got nearer the bulb In the ther- Tl
lomotor , but these apparent drawbacks lo
ave tholr compensating features. The to >
an shines brightly about 350 days every th
car , and its rays como down through a in
tear dry atmosphere with ozonic propor- inm
ca and which docs not benumb ono if m
10 mercury is 30 or 40 degrees below ra
aro. It Is undeniably a rather frigid tiiwl
iimato which keeps the mercury below wl
3ro for thirty or more consecutive days an
ad nights , as was the case during the in ;
Inter of 188314. But the Inhabitants Ha
roparo for this low range of temperature ch
y unanimously clothing themselves In ho
irs ; buffalo , wolf , bsavor , otter , coon dr
nd dogskin overcoats are generally worn so
nd are a necessity for anyone who has
ay driving to do over the frozen prat pn
ies. But few southern people have em- ho ,
rated to this section , the population to :
elng mainly composed of these from the bu
orthorn tier of states , from Canada and ac >
om Norway and Sweden , to whom cold co
oather is no hardship. tal

rlco ever paid for wheat in this section , as !
io low for any margin of profit to the en
rorago farmer who as a rule Is atrng- llo
Ing under a burden of mortgages on his nc
nd , chattels and in aomo cases on his yo
owing crops. The farmer Is tempted

avlng the balance to draw 10 or 12 per dr
int Interest , depending on a bountiful
irvoit and a good price therefor to meet

it have sheds in which to store their tee

10 loss Is largo each year of solf-blndora ,
odors and other farm machinery. Time
course will correct this evil when the
rmer learns by dear experience to con- on i
ict bis farming operations in the same CO ]
irifty and provident manner aa does hami
s eastern brother. If only a fair crop mi
secured and the prlca dropa to 50 or CO foime

A. Haunted Gar That Pti77to tlio Hoys
And Cuts Up Kouglily ,
"It' < i the etranpoit thing that I overheard
hoard of. It often starts off on a perfect
ly level ( rack and wo have to keep the
brake on all the tlmo In order tj keep It
quiet. "
The above remarks wcro uttered by
Jack Martin , a brakcinau on the San Pore -
] ro road , to a reporter of the Los Augo-
os Express. Martin was addressing a
"What's ' the matter with the car ? "
asked the person addressed.
"I think It is haunted. At loaat all
the boyo say It is. It may and it may not
be ; but It is certain that the car often
moves when no ono is near it. " Thn car
In question wai an old ono and stood on
a side track. It had just been brought
np from San Pedro , and had been emp
tied of six tons of Iron for the cable rail
road. Continuing , Martin said : "That
car has a strange history. No loss than
tbroo murders have boon committed in it.
Three years ago it was brought out from
Boston loaded with line furnlturo for a
hotel in Sacramento. Somewhere In
Nevada the door was broken open and
two tramps entered and closed the door.
They were anxious to got to 'Frisco , and
being supplied with food and water they
proposed to go through without change.
No ono knows how the deed was done ,
but whou the car was opened at Sacra-
nont the body of ono of the tramps was
liscovorcd. His throat was cut and an
igly wound was found on his right sldo.
Cho other tramp could not bo found. The
ar was side-tracked at Sacramento three
uonlhs and was then loaded with flour
or Stockton. Whllo at the depot at the
alter place a conpls of railroad hands ao-
iuplod it ono nlcht , and during a game of
ards ono of them named John Dawoy
tabbed his companion. He died in a few
lomcnts. The trial waa n long ono and IS
) owey was sentenced to San Queutiu for
wonty years. Ho claimed ho acted in
olfdofonce. When arrested , however , head
ad about $38 in his possession , whllo his
oad companion did not have a niokol ,
'hat looked lather suspicious. Well ,
10 next wo heard of No , 11,088 she was
10 scene of another mysterious affair ,
his waa about a year ego at El PASO.
'arlng a strike among a lot cf Italian
.borers at that place this car waa boarded
7 half a dczon of them. " A quarrel on-
led over some trifling matter and ono of
icm was beaten so badly that ho died bo-
ire medical aid could bo summoned. "
"The car mnstbe haunted , " remarked r :
'artln'o companion , who listened to the
ory with the closest attention , "and I iD i
onld not sloop in it for $100' " D
"All the train men sty it is , " oonlin in
id Martin , "end the fact that it will of- boA
n ! move on a level track is an evidence A
at something is wrong. "
"Do you over heir any atrango noises
onnd It ? " atikod the reporter. BeTH
"I fancy sometimes I hoar a moan or
mo indistinct mutterings , bntit maybe
ily Imagination , " replied the brakeman.
Fho engineer said yesterday that ho
tard a human voice In It , but on looking
around the car saw no one. The fact
the matter is. I do not have much to
with the old thing , and I wish the TH :
mpany would draw it off. " At this
ilnt in tha conversation Martin's train
tiled up from the now depot and ho
arded it and was soon engaged with the
itles attending his line of business. Oar

"The chief reason why the European
kssengor steamship business has ceased

ihod companies , " said a shipping agent

porter , "is a very simple ono. This

Ily say run Into the ground , speaking

ng expenses are too high , and they use 10
much coal that It loaves very little 14

"Take the Etrnrh , for instance , the big 7

cldonts. This leaves room for ouly 50 2
10 tons of car 'o , and at the very low 18
ices for ocean freights which have pro llci Pii

"Now , compare a steamer like the Gcr- G G ! ;
snlc with the Ktrurla. The Germanic 10
akes the run In seven days and a half , 10 10 i
king a day longer than boats like the Lei
truria. But sbo consumes only 100 Na

gainst the Etruria's 2,275. And in FlcLi
ace of 400 tons of cargo the White Li
ar steamers can cirry 2,200 tons.

"But vessels llko the Etrnrla can D

"No ; they can carry a few moro pas-
