ACCOMMODATIONS FOR EMIGRANTS.
In olden times, pioneers ex
pected to encounter privations and
generally prepared thomselves to
meet with contentment all sorts of
obstaoles and hardships. The
journey to a remote district was
often tedious and full of dangers,
consuming- much time and almost
exhausting human endurance- But
the world moves, and the iron
horse lias to a great extent anni
hilated both time and distance.
Emigrants are now carried a long
way on their route, and frequently
to the actual point of destination
by means of railroad facilities.
Heretofore the method of emigrant
transportation by rail has been
somewhat rude in character,though
far preferable to the old style of
movement by means of ox-teams.
There is no doubt that of late years
railroads have largely aided in the
settlement of wild lands and the
building up of largo and intelli
gent communities in places where
wild beasts not very long ago held
undisputed sway. Jn fact, emi
grant patronage forms a large
item in the annual receipts of
many railroads in the United
States. Competition for this class
of custom has not been without
benefit to emigrants. More at
tention is given to their personal
comfort, and accommodations that
maT almost be classed as luxuries,
arc beginning to be provided by
way of atttacting attention and
travel in some specially desired
directions. The latest feature in
this line is the introduction of
"emigrant sleepers" by the Den
ver and Kio Grande Railroad,
more generally styled the "scenic
line." The Denver lcpublixt7is
in noticing two sleepers just finish
ed at the car works, near that
"The exterior finish o the cars
is equal in every respect to a
palace Pullman, while the Ulterior
is a model of neatness and con
venience. There is a cooking
range at eaeh end of the car for
the accommodation of those who
may desire to prepare their own
meals. There arc receptacles for
ice water, patent ventilators, a
spacious closet lavatory, and, in
fact everything that the ingenuity
of the car builder could devise to
add to the comfort of the passen
ger. The berths are capacious
and ingeniously constructed, and
can be made as comfortable as
those in any sleeper. The in
terior decoration corresponds in
ciognnce with the handsome ex
terior. When accommodations, such as
are noted above, are provided, the
mere act of emigration becomes a
matter of pleasure, and it is diffi
cult, to see how anyone, having
the slightest inclination to move
from old to new civilization, can,
under the circumstances, resist the
Chatham street, New York, has
two cheap eating-houses where the
prices are eight cents for roast
mutton or beef, a mutton chop or
a beefsteak; five cents for a bswl
of coffee or tea, including a loaf of
bread; five cents for pork chops
or fried fish; five cents for hash.
Each p ace sells a barrel of hash
daily. Large puddings or dump
lings or pieces of pie are sold at
five cents each. There is an im
mense rush at certain hours of the
day, and more than 2,000 people
feed at them daily. They are
known as the Jim Fisk and Boss
The Maine liquor law recognizes
among the uses for which spiritu
ous liquor may be employed,
those termed "mechanical purpos
es." By the liberal construction
placed upon the law by the farm
ers of that state, mechanical pur
poses are held to include raising
barns, etc., on which occasion it is
customary to furnish refreshments
to participants. It is said that the
sum appropriated by the North
ern Pacific railroad for mechanical
purposes of this nature in conuec
tioh with driving the last spike
was upwards of 20,000.
Brother Gardner on Ingersoll.
Elder Penstock arose to inquire
if any member of the club had
heard whether Bob Ingersoll was
to lecture this winter or not. No
one seemed to have heard anything
about it, and the reverend member
requested that the secretary be
instructed to write to Ingersoll di
rect and ascertain.
"What am de object?" queried
"I propose dat dis club take
steps to prove dat dar am a hero
after fur de soul."
"You do, eh? If depnsson who

Coincidents of History.
Under the above heading the
Helena Herald of the 23rd, says:
"It was just twenty-one years ago
that congress made its rant of
land for the purpose of construct
ing the Pacific railroads. Wej
were then in throes of civil war, j
and the southern states had se- j
ceded from the Union, and there
was talk and fear that the Pacific
coast states aud territories would
swing loose and set up a republic
for themselves. It was thought
that something must be done to
retain what was left of the Union.
Everybody was more than willing
to give half or even more of the
intervening wilderness domain to
any company that would under
take to construct a railroad through
that wilderness. Between that
day of promise and this day of
completion, time enough has elaps
ed for an infant then born to
grow to manhood, from minority
to majority. Since that da' the
population of the country has
nearly doubled. There were in
operation in the United States in
1S62, thirty-two thousand one
hundred and twenty miles of rail
road; to-day there is nearly four
times as much. The frontier
was then on the Mississippi and
Missouri. Where is it to-day?
The harvest is now about over
with, and our people can form
some idea of the result. The yield
of grain, in most portions of this
county, has been far beyond the
most sanguine anticipations of
farmers, many fields yielding from
twenty-live to thirty bushels per
acre where the prospects of a
light yield was the rule but a few
weeks before the grain was cut
We learn that in many instances
wheat that grew without a drop of
rain on it between the time of
sowing and ripening, has produced
as high as thirty and thirty-five
bushels to the acre; and that a
poor crop and a light yield has
been the exception and not the
rule. With a fair price for their
surplus grain, our farmer friends
will be in excellent circumstances
to commence the new year. The
freeze out of last year was not an
unmitigated evil, as it pulverized
the soil, and made it more capa
ble of resisting-the drouth of this
unprecedently dry summer. Cor

A raft of timbers intended for
spiles was brought from St. John,
New Brunswick, to New York
city August 2G, after a voyage by
steam tows of three weeks. The
distanca is GOO miles, an average
of GO miles per day. The raft, if
such it can be called, was 800 feet
long and 30 feet wide, drawing
about 8 feet of water. It was
formed by sections of eleven cribs
each, containing about 500 spiles
of sixty-five feet length. Over
and around the sections great
chains were wound. Between
each cargo there was u wide space
to allow free working of the raft.
The raft was towed by two power
The Maryland Farmer pub
lishes a letter from a correspondent
who has seen the great cotton mills
of Fall River, Mass., and gives
some statements which are not
generally considered when esti
mating the relative manufacturing
importance of the geographical
sections of the country. Fall
River has a population of 55,000,
according to the last census: it
has fifty-three mills for the manu
facture of cotton goods, covering
an investment of $35,000,000.
Fall River has over one-seventh of
all the spindles in the country, and
manufactures over three-fifths of
all the print cloths of the country.
This manufacturing city employs
18,135 persons, their pay weekly
amounting to 113,000, and the
capital stock is reckoned at S1G,
73S.000. There has been a great number
of earthquakes in Great Britain
from time to time. The last of
note was that of 1 810. It extend
ad over a vast area of country,
and in some localities its effects:
were scarcely felt. The lakes of
Cumberland and Durham, and
those of "Scotland were visibly
agitated, and the progressive
motion of the shock was also
felt in Irelaud.
