It is seldom indeed that the following question is answered correctly off hand : A train starts daily from San Francisco to New York and one daily from New York to San Francisco, the journey lasting five days. How many trains will a traveler meet in journeying from New York to San Francisco? About ninety-nine persons out of a hundred would say five trains, as a matter of course. The fact is overlooked that every day during the journey a-fresh train is starting from the other end, while there are five trains on the way to begin with. Consequently the traveler will meetnot five trains but ten. - New York Tribune. Mr. Boyd-Jones- The beautiful Mrs. Sharptung, I am told, is an accomplished dancer.
