WHAT WAS SHE THINKING OF?
Actress, In Fear of Death, rtegrctted
She Had No Fan.
Mr, Anderson tells a fecod sto.-y of
Miss Blsworthy during one of hie
American tours. In tho midst of
something approaching tho wreck of.
tno strip in which the company was
traveling from a northern port to New
Orleans, Anderson, rushing to the sa
loon to help the ladles, found Miss Els
worthy with her maid, both In an
agony of fear which had cured their
seasickness. The perspiration was
rolling down their faces. I assured
them there was no danger. "No dan
ger! No danger!" cried tho actress
hysterically. "Why, I can see tho sky
and sea through the ship's side. We
are going down; tho heat la suffocat
ing oh, dear, oh, dear; we are going
down, I tell you, and and (looking
everywhere around her) my God! 1
havo no fan!"
Engine Instead of Farmhand.
Tho farm hand and tho farm horse
aro rapidly being supplanted on the
level tracts of the west by tho trac
tion engine. Tho farms are . large,
comprising several hundred acres,
sometimes 1,000, and usually without
trees or stones. Under these condi
tions tho engine can do any kind of
work. It lS a compact llttlo machine
run by gasoline, and. not at all -like
the ordinary attachment to a thrash
ing machine. It ruu& a "gang plow"
with five in a row, three or four har
rows at a time, is coupled when de
sired to a separator for thrashing
grain, runs tho mill for grinding cat
tle feed, and hauls farm wagons to
market laden with grain. In fact,
there Is scarcely a thing about farm
work that tho little traction engine
will not do. V
The editor of tho Glasgow Echo
avers he is not Inclined to be much of
a sport, but he says, when "we meet
a cinch In the road wo recugnlzo it."
Thus habit led him to accept a prop
osition made by a friend the other
day, and every time a passing woman
felt to learn if her skirt was gaping
or tucked in under her belt the friend
was to give the editor a nickel, while
for each woman who did not do one of
these things In walking a block tho
editor was to glvo a dime. "Wo got
62 nickels," tho molder of opinion con
cludes,' "and paid him ono dime a

Growth of Postofflccc.
Few things afford a better Index of
the prtpraps of'thli country In popula
tion, and rlso oi tho character of tho
increase, than statistics of tho Post
office Department showing the number
of new postofflces created during tho
year. Thus it appears that in the year
ended July 1, 1&02, there waB a gain
of 294 postoflic"- In this country, In
volving an Increase In thr salary ac
counts of $541,300. Accepting tho view
of tho venerable Edward Everett Hale
that every postomco is equivalent to
a public school as an educational
agency, these figures havo a still
larger meaning and significance'.
"Deacon" White's Career.
S. V. ("Deacon") White, the veteran-
of Wnll street, who has just sold
his spat on the New York Stock Ex
change, says that waen ho began trad
ing thcro ovor thirty years ago tho
transactions of a day seldom reached
200,000 shares, as against' an average
of 2,000,000 now. "Mr. White," -said
ono of his old friends a day or two
ago, "you jiave. accomplished many
big things on 'the street,' hut your
greatest achievement has been that
in spite of your many vicissitudes you
havo always paid your debts."
Possibilities of the Trolley
The ramifications of the trolley sys

never-ending wondor. Routes fifty and
seventy-Ive mifes long from tho dif

trolley throughout New England and
the Middle States that within five
years, it Is predicted, one will bo able
to travel from. Augusta, Me., to Chi

An editor works 365 days per

A German dancing master, who tho

of Hamburg, Germany, for a trivial

sheet as blind. Ho protested against

there was nothing wrong with his eye
