Took Him For Bryan.
A traveling man named Knight re
lates that he came out from the East at
the same time .Bryan did, the train be
ing in two sections, Knight being on
the firBt. He was smooth faced, re
sembling Bryan somewhat, and when
the train pulled into Rawlins, Wyom
ing, a big crowd had assembled to meet
the silver champion. Knight stepped
on the platform, and at once a mighty
shout went up, all mistaking him for
Bryan. He rose to the occasion, lifted
his hat, thanked the people for the dem
onstration, excused himself from speak
ing on the ground of exhaustion, and ex
pressed a desire to shake hands with all
the ladies. The latter flocked around
and nearly shook his arm off, and then
as the train pulled oat all went home.
When Bryan's train came in there was
not a soul at the depot and everybody
was happy, too.
A gardener near New Whatcom has
hit upon a novel method of getting rid
of a neighbor's chickens, which had
done much mischief in his garden. He
wrote a number of cards: "lam likely
to beBhot," "Keep me at home," "I've
been scratching up my neighbor's gay
den," etc. To each of these cards be at
tached a thread and at the other end a
kernel of corn. The hens swallowed the
corn and returned home labeled with
the cards, every one having a sign hang
ing out of its mouth.

CONTINUOUS STREET RAILS.
The Contraction and Expansion of the
Metal Were Easily Overcome.
Continuous rails, made up of ordinary
rails length welded; together electrical
ly, are in use on many miles of electric
street railways in the United) States,
sjys Cassder's Magazine, and with ex
cellent resultstoo, havingshown them--L-ives
to constitute an ideal track
Whatever misgivings may have arisen at
ojetime as to the serious pranks which
expansion end contraction might play
with such continuous tracks have been
fCectively ' allayed, as experience has
shown that the difficulties likely to
rrrow from these causes are not extraor
dinary. It is interesting, however, to
:iote that of the troubles froni'tempera
ture variations in the tra.ck, that due
io a temperature lower than the one at
which the rails were welded is the only
o::e requiring serious consideration. It
is found in the tendency of the rail to
shrink in a longitudinal direction, and
iiiis must be counteracted' by a pull on
the end's of the rail sufficient to produce
a corresponding amount of stretch.
Temperatures above that at which the
rails were weldied cause compression,
andi this has never been found to make
trouble where the track was at all se
cured by the roadbed.
Experience, therefore, would seem to
point to the winter season as the time
for welding continuous track, as then
the rails are materially contracted', and,
though exceptionally cold snaps may
be productive of a slight sate of tension
in the rails, yet the maximum stress
would- be nothing' like that in rails
welded in the summer, and'probably far
below the strength of the welds.
