- "An Oddity In Railroading.
"The craze for fast time on railways
Is taking a new feature," observed a
prominent railroad official to a Star
writer recently. "It is the shortening
of lines and reconstruction of surveys
in order to make a given line as
straight as possible between two points.
It is, in fact, a scheme to make , time
. by saving distance. A railway , with
out a curve or a cutting is, of course, a
Splendid thing from an engineering
standpoint, but it is a very tedious
affair to the passenger. : To thoroughly
. realize how extremely monotonous a
long journey on a railway without a
curve or cutting is, one must travel on
the road from Buenos Ayres to the
Andes. That railroad beats all known
records for having 200 miles of tracks
almost on a line, such as mathemati
cians describe as the shortest distance
between any two points. No one who
has not seen this remarkable stretch of
road, straight in front and behind as
far as the eye can reach, even when
aided by a field glass, can grasp what it
means or what an amount of wearisome
monotony it involves and entails."

Distributive Trade Is Still of an En.
Bradstreets says: Distributive trade,
While smaller at some markets, is still
of encouraging volume, industry is ac
tive, railway earnings heavy, prices
still tend upward and bank clearings
increase, while failures lessen. Fall
festivals and other celebrations at sev
eral cities have had an appreciable
effect upon retail trade, and proved a
stimulating factor in wholesale lines.
Industrial activity Is widespread, and
strikes are fewer and less costly than
in most years. Though lessened by
holidays, bank clearings, swelled partly
by heavy October disbursements and
partly by general business expanding,
tend to enlarge as the season advances.
Business failures are apparently, at
a minimum, and liabilities are certain
ly less costly than for many years past.
Prices as a whole manifest aggressive
strength. Farm products are especial
ly prominent in this direction, the
South's greatest staple, cotton, owing
to short crop, advancing, and, owing
to active speculation leading in extent
of gain with an advance of nearly
a cent for the week, of nearly 2 cents
as compared with a year ago . and of
quite 2 cents as compared with the
low water price touched in the season

A War-Time Mistake.
Ia a Missouri court recently a rather
novel case came up for decision. Dur
ing the. civil war a certain Northera
soldler went into the service, leaving a
young wife at home. In due time the
news reached him that his bride had
died and when the war ended he did
not return to his old home, but settled
out West. He married again, and with
his second wife accumulated a large
amount of property in Uratt county.
Not long ago he learned that his first
wife had not died, but, supposing him
to have been killed, had married an
other man. This man died, leaving
her a widow. When the Pratt county
man learned these facts he brought suit
for divorce, and the woman in the EaBt
heard of it and went out and fought
the case, asserting a claim to part of
the Pratt county man's property.
However, after the lawyers had made
a great fight before him, the judge
granted the divorce and left the Pratt
county man free to marry" the woman
who has been living with him for many
years as his wife. N. Y. Tribune.
