Weems’ Marvelous Motor.
For some months paragraphs have
appealed, now and then in the news
papers, concerning a new railroad
system by which mails and light mat
ter may be transported with a speed
much greater than any yet attained
by steam cars, and it was announced
the other day that arra ngcmcnls were
being made to put the system into
operation. The inventor is Mr. David
G. Weems, of Daltimore, and the
motive power is electricity. About -
150patents have been taken out in
the United States and in the other
principal countries of the world, cov
ering the vital points of the system,
and among them is one for a principle
intended to make it impossible for
trains to jump the track, however
great the speed may he. The road, at
Thun.ho clasped lu r with emotion,
Drew the iiiiii«l«*n to his breast,
Whispered vows of truo devotion,
The old, old tale,-you know the rest.
From his circled arms unspringing,
With a tear she turned awnv,
And her voice with sorrow ringing,
“I shall not see my bridal day.
This dramatic speech broke him up badly
” . i ..I But when eho explained tlmt her npprehen-

lhc ground, and will have a gunge of
twenty-four inches, hut in populous
districts it will be elevated if thought
desirable. The cost of construction
will be about $5,000 a mile. All
trains will be operated from generat
ing stations, about 100 miles apart,
and there arc means by which the
operators aro posted concerning the
exact position of each train, from the
time it leaves one station until it
reaches another. A feature of the
system is that no attendants arc need
ed upon the trains.
For the last year repeated experi
ments of flic system have been made
at Laurel, -Aid. The experimental
road is a circuit of two miles, with
twenty-nine changes of grade, some
of which arc very heavy. From the
tests made, it is thought that the train
can be mil on a level track at the rate
of three miles a minute, 180 miles an
It the Weems system can be put in
to successful operation. it will bring
about a revolution in railroad matters.
Fcoplc who have witnessed the trials
at Laura! arc confident that it will he
“In Dis Yere Sin-cussed Worl’.”
The mayor of Louisville, upon
meeting an old negro, drew him
aside, and, in a voice by no means
gentle, thus addressed him:
“Randsom, I am going to have you
“How come dat ?”
“Why, for having obtained money
under false pretences.”
“I ain’t done nothin’ like dat, sali;
I ’clar’ ter goodness I ain’t.”
“Didn’t you come to me yesterday
and get a dollar ?”
“And didn’t you say it was to pay
the funeral expenses of your son ?”
"Yes, sah.” .
“Well, but, you trifling scoundrel,
I saw your son on the street just
“You know what I said.”
“Yas, sah; yas, but I didn’t tell
you de boy wur. dead, did I ?”
“Didn’t tell me he was dead! You
infernal old idiot, did you suppose I
thought you were going to bury him
“Then what do you mean by saying
that you didn’t tell me lie was dead ?’’
“Now, jes’ hoi’ on, sah; jest wait or
minit. Dat boy ain’t been in good
healf fur a laung time, an’ knowin’
dat I’d hatter bury him sooner er la

when the folks wan’t hard pressed.
I’se mighty kine-hcartcd dis way,

An’, ergin, I’se er man dat doan blebc
