A railroad report from Arapaho-

cial from that piece :
"We are not absolutely certain but
indications all point to the line build-
"iR to Arapahoe. Our committee
knows no rest and not one during their
efforts so paved with discouragements
has ever suggested a retreat. Private
business to them has been secondary

I that it was a small Investment well
placed, and the men opposing it should,
and doubtless will, feel that the vast
increase in their farms, was the* victory
of pluck and progress over their self-
ishness and short sighted business

"In the work thus done thero is a
pardonable reason to rejoice, and no
friend to the enterprise need be fear-
ful that the men at the wheels will
ever throw themselves across the path
of its onward march.
"We want the railroad; our fate de-
pends upon it and that star of hope
will never set through any fault on our
part. The railroad's locating here is
almost assured. Come, contribute and

There is no doubt ihet the increase
of cigarette smoking among women ii
due in some degree to the fact that
novelists of late have pictured their
heroines as indulging in the detestable
and filthy habit. A w l iter in Harper's
-iuzar asserts that il is only a very
short time ago that it was the fast
more or less disreputable and certainly
secondary character, the woman Til-
lam. in faet. who rolled her cigarette
and flicked its ash daintily with her
ring-bedecked fingers, but the best and
most virtuous heroines to-day may
liave the nicotine stain on their n-ettv
hands. J J
The writer recalls that it was some-
thing-of a shock to have Carmen in
Charles Dudley Warner's "That For-
tune smoke, a shock simply because it
implied an acceptance on Mr. Warner's
part that women in presentable soci-
ety did smoke. The book is a compara-
tively late one. yet. if Mr. Warner, in a
new edition, were to make Evelyn
Mavick herself smoke it would scarce-
ly be surprising, so rapidly has the in-
novation become an accepted habit,

who said, four or five years ago. and it
was accepted then as a neat phrase
that he really did not know which lie'
disliked the more, "ihe man who did
not smoke or the woman w ho did."

Whether the inscriptions were sup-
posed to possess an.v educational
value. His lordship replied that the
articles in question were not to lie
had in this country, and that lie had
not noticed the texts when giving the
order, says the I.ondon Telegraph.
So far, so good; but now that the
Stoves are there, the phi'ologic occa-
elon may just as well be improved.
fiqueers asked one of his boarders to

having examined a pupil as to the
