FOUR MILES A MINUTE.
A Machine to Convey Packages and
People at that Rate.
A new scheme of transportation is
to be introduced l>etwecu New York
and Boston, whereby, it is said, large
packages of mail aud even ears con
taining passengers can be whitked
from one place to another, a distance
of 200 miles, in less than an hour.
This would be equal to a speed of four
ruiles per miuutc. Au experiment
with the new machine was held yes
terday in Boston in the presence of
many scientists, including Professor
A. E. Dolbear, of Tufts college, who
announced Ahat he was thoroughly
satisfied of the success of the system.
The inventor, John G. Williams, is
a resident of this city. His macnjnc
consists of n magnetic car hanging
from a single rail, where it follows a
streak of electricity. With one horse
power it is said that one ton can be
thus transported at a distance of 1,440
miles a day at a cost of thirty cents.
This, ii mail matter, would represent
2,880,000 letters aud by this system
packages of mail could be sent off
every five minutes thus preventing
large accumulations. The single track
is to be carried on tripods some dis
tance above the ground, and the car
will passthrough coils of insulated wire
In the experiments yesterday the
carriage exhibited was mounted on a
wooded track, on posts about three
feet high, with an ascent of six inches
in five feet, and it ran on one wheel
at each end. The scientific principle
involved is said to be that by which
a hollow coil of insulated wire will
draw a magnet into itself, and in the
aerial railway the car passing trough
a coil cuts off the current, which goes
on to one ahead.
A Tennessee Story.
Col. Robertson, of Habersham, was
one of the speakers at the road
congress. Among other things he
I am very much like a Teuncssceau
who came down, into Georgia. Our
roads are about tbe only thing that
did not feel the shock of the revolution
of 1861. They arc just the same they
were before the war.
•This Tennesseean, who was used to
those enterprise in his own state,
crossed the line aud came down into
North Georgia. After driving through
mud holes and through ruts, and out
of one rut across three, he came iuto
dry ground and then lie struck a root
out of dry ground, that had neither
form nor comeliness. Then he came
along a level stretch of road and lie
peartened up, and the horse pearteued
up, and he came up to a house and it
looked like it was all right, whcn»snd-
denly, strctchiug ns far as the eye
could reach in front, appeared a pine
pole corduroy. Turning around he
whipped his horse back to tho good
stretch of road aud then hack and
forth agaiu till lie attracted the atten
tion of the mnu who lived in the house,
and the man carac out. Overcome by
his curiosity, lie said:
‘‘My friend, what does this mean?
Arc you druuk or crazy?”
And the man from Tennessee re
plied, ‘‘my friend I am from Tennessee,
lam going down into Georgia on
some business and this is the first
trotting road I’ve found, aud dniiin
me if I ain’t ngoiu’ to enjoy it.”
It Does Seem tn Work.
Unjuyuiv, I a., May 22—In an inter
view yesterday. Internal Revenue
Collector Webster, of this district,
staled that the prohibitory law in
creased the sale of liquor in Iowa.
This year lie has issued 2.12 more li
quor licenses Ilian last year. The
number of wholesale dealers is slight
ly less than before the prohibitory
law.'but the sales are larger and the
qualilv of the liquor so d is poorer.
Not only have the sales increased, but
since the decision of llie United
States Supreme Court in the ca c of
Bowman Brothers the Marshalltown
brewer's importations by express of
original packages of liquor lias been
enormous. Wholesale liquor houses
have sprung lip all along the borders
of the slate and arc supported mainly
by the Iowa trade.
There is a good deal of grim humor
among Texans. In the southwestern
part of the state, some time since, a
bank president, after making way
with all the funds, posted upon tbe
door of the institution the simple
legend, “hank suspended.” That
night a half dozen of the depositors
hung the thief to the limb of a tree,
fastening upon his breast a placard
bearing the terse inscription, “bank
. The Woodrow evolution theory
brings up the creation of Adam. The
old negro who said Adam was made
out of mud and stood up against a
fence to dry, evidently pinned his
faith to the creation from the dust
theory, though lie was a little off
about that feucc. However this may
be, his faith was sublime.
