A Glimpse of “Wonderland.”
The TiMEs-ExTUHrrrtsi: is indebted
to Mr. R. W. Glnding.tvho represents
the Northern Pacific Railroad, for
“Glimpse of Wonderland.” The
scenery along the Northern Pacific is
the most picturesque in the world,and
the climate is an ideal one,/or a sum-

issued l>y the Northern Pacific is
marvel of taste and beauty, and cal

The Melon Crop.
The Albany News aud Advertiser,
feeling a deep interest ii the melon
‘industry, and appreciating tile anxiety
of the growers for proper facilities for
handling the crop, wrote President
Alexandeffof the Central system, to
ascertain if auy increased advantages
would he given this season. His an
swer is as follows;
Savannah, Ga., April 30th, ’89.
Editor News and Advertiser:
On my return from a visit to New
York, I find your favor of the 13th
inst. on my desk.
We expect to have ready, for the
earliest movement of the watermelon
crop, upwards of 500 ventilated cars
in service, and 200 more to be deliv
ered before the height of the^season.
I think that this addition to our pres
ent equipment, and w^at wc can get
from our connections, will provi 1 ’
amply for the crop on our lines. The
cars will he concentrated iu the water
melon territory befoie the season be
gins, Hmple provision of motive power
will he made, some extra side tracks
will be put in, and every effort made
to handle tho business satisfacto
We nre deeply interested in the
growth oi'thc business, and I do. not
think there can he found a parallel
case in the world, where as great facil
ities, and ns rapid transportation are
furnished at as low figure as our water-
melou growers will enjoy during the
coming season. I cannot, of course,
guarantee that there will be no com
plaint, but I do guarantee that no
exertion or expense will be spared on
our part to give satisfaction, and that
all reisonablo suggestions that can be
oflered by th« producers interested,
shall always receive prompt and care

Culiure Leads to Simple Dress.
A marked feature of our tin es is
the increased simplicity in dress. Iu
spite of an occasional monstrous whim
that gets embodied iu style, both the
habits of ladies and gentlemen arc
more quiet aud less pretentious than
fifty years ago. Men’s business suits
are on a. pattern brought down to ab
solute economy in expense and fitness
for work. Nor are dress suits charac
terized by any of the superfluities of
tho last century. Clergymen iiave
given up not only the wigs und bauds
and cocked hats, the invariable black
and white tio of fifty years ago. The
judges no longer wear scarlet, faced
with velvet. Wigs, stocks, powders,
pomatums, arc less and less import
ant. A gentleman of 1800, when lie
went abroad, must appear iu satin
embroidered vest, a wig aud satin
small clothes, with white silk stock

Who started the report ? Docs the

often used to conceal the point of an
