THOUGHTS ON BUSINESS
WALDO PONDRAY WARREN
THE MASTER'S EYE
THERE Is an ancient proverb that "the master's eye
does more work than both hie hands." The modern
version of the master's eye Is a card catalogue system
that keeps a record of the work of thousands of employes of
a great Industrial Institution. In passing such a card file the
other day I made Inquiry about It, and the manager said:
"This Is our system for keeping track of the mistakes
made by employes. Nearly every mistake we discover in
any' part of the work is traced back to the employe who
made It, and it is recorded here against his name."
"Do you point out each person's mistakes to him at the
"Oh, yes. Especially when they amount to much. But
we don't speak about every mistake. That would only con
fuse the employes and make them fearful and probably lead
to making more errors."
"What do you find Is th cause for most mistakes?"
"Carelessness almost every time."
"How does your system affect that?"
"Well, he said, "the mere fact that we keep such u
record Is a stimulus to employes to' be careful. Even If wa
never looked up a card it would be worth while keeping up
the system just for the general Influenoe It has. But we rsfer
to it often. And we know It works because the percentage
of mistakes Is lowered from year to year."

UNITED STATES A MECCA
FOR THE VIVISECTIONISTS.
60 Author of n Plea For Regulation of
Animal Experiments Asserts.
That the United States, owing to the
lack of laws restricting vivisection, l
a Mecca for "Scientific fanatics" Is as
serted In n hook about to he published
in New York, "The Problem of Vivi
section A l'lea For Proper Uegula
Hon." The author says:
"The abuses of research Include ov
err form of excruciating and llnuorlug
tormeiit that can. be conceived. In
the august name of science, nnhuuls
have been subjected to burning, bak
ing, freezing, saturation with Inflam
mable oil and then setting on lire,
starvation to death, sktunhig alive,
larding the feet with nails, crushing
and tormenting In every conceivable
"But are such glaring abuses possi
ble In America? Why not? The realm
of pain has here no boundaries which
Investigation Is required to observe.
In no American state or common
wealth Is there any law, any statute
of any kind whatever, which would
prevent these experiments from being
repeated here as often as desired.
"Now, Is it probable that In a coun
try like ours, with a population drawn
from every forelgu source, experimen
tal research, thus unrestrained, re
mains free from the excesses which
have, statued It everywhere else In
Italy, In France, in Germany?
"The absenco of clear, definite and
reasonable limitations beyond which
vivisection becomes cruelty and should
not go Is of Itself an Invitation tot
abuse. And scientific fanatics have
even been known to come to the Unit-,
cd States to perpetrate acts of cruelty'
which they knew would not be allowed ;

REVOLUTION IN FAN THEORIES
Turbine Blower Upsets Old Ideas
About How to "Move Air."
Propeller fans everybody knows
ubout. They push the air Just as a
propeller pushes a ship. Centrifugal
fans work on the same principle as a
centrifugal pump. As tho blades re
volve at high speed the air between
them Is driven outward by centrifugal
force. Of one of this type of fans In
vented by S. ( Davidson of llolfust,
Ireland, George 1L Winxtnuley. F. G.
S., In a work soon to be published on
I "The Mechanical Equipment of Col-
t Ilerles," says:
The most Interesting feature about
this fan is (If I mny use the expression)
that It "knocks on the head" many of
the generally accepted fan theories.
The distinctive features of the Sirocco
fan are these: It has an absolutely
clear Inlet or practically the same di
ameter as the fan Itself. (All other
fans have the Inlet much smaller In
diameter than that of the revolving
portion.) The blades are very short
radially, being only about one-sixteenth
of the fan diameter. The width of the
blades, however, Is greater than usual,
about three-fifths of the diameter.
There are a larger number of blades
than are usually found In centrifugal
fans, sixty-four being the number
adopted In the Sirocco, The blades
take more the form of scoops, with a
As an example of what these fans
can do a fan of well known make at a
Lancashire colliery Is producing 233,
000 cubic feet per minute. This fan Is
twenty-four feet In diameter. A Si
rocco fan that has recently been In
stalled at a colllory In tho north of
England Is seventy-five Inches In
diameter and is producing 220.000
cubic feet per minute. The signifi
cance of this comparison is too obvious
to need further comment.
STARTS CAMPAIGN AGAINST

Sate of Bogus Brands Enjoined ae
First Step In General Movement Now
One Injunction lins followed another
In the United States courts, restrain

in connection with cigars not made in
that city. This Is the beginning of a
general campaign against the practice
of misbranding cigars. The Injunctions

An Injunction recently Issued In
Phlludclphlu restrains the defendant
"from In any way, manner or form,
directly or Indirectly, whether by
means of labels, hands, marking on

Mr. S. R. Perry of the law Arm of

"The defendants In this case are only

about 100,000,000 cigars a year Many

WORLD CONDEMNS CASTRO.!
Press of All Lands Agrees That Ven

Nuisance That Some Power Should
Apropos of the (rouble between Cas
tro and the Dutch, (he Unii-Amcrlcan
In Its current Issue publishes comment
from the newspapers of Kuropo and
South A merlin on Castro, his stylo of
government and his medtod of dealing
with forelgu powtrs nud Interests. In
Its own account the Pan-Alncrlcnn
says: , s
"The result of tho association of de
rent states with retrograde states Is
hurtful. One South American repub
lic has done more to blacken the char
acter of and destroy the world's con
lldeneo In l.titlu-Amcrlcnu republics
than can be wiped out of the world's
memory In many deendes. This alleged
republic nud Its kind should be black
listed commercially and In all national
dealings. Most of the Important world
powers have already ostracized this
'republic' for good and sutllclent rea
sons. South American states would
do well to follow Europe's example."
Neither La Vrensa of Rio do Janeiro,
the Herald of Duettos Aires nor Modern
Mexico expresses any sympathy for
Castro. The last named paper advises
him not to look for help from tho
United States should the Nether
lands government take radical action.
Modern Mexico adds: "Castro would
show sound sense by meeting tho
American government halfway In the
matter of the American claims.
"Hut If ho won't It Is not likely, wn
less, Indeed, Castro Is fatuous enough
to leave the United States government
no choice, that there will bo war or
even that that government will furnish
to Venezuela any reasonable oxeuse
for complaining of a lack of Interna
tional 'correctness' on Its part."
An International Nuisance.
From the London Times this ((nota
tion Is given: "On all available evi
dence the rule of Ciprlauo Castro has
been and Is a system of sheer brig
andage. The messages In which he
belauds himself and his sway nud ns
sures the world, with all the extrava
gance of Spanish-American rhetoric,
that he has made Venezuela great,
glorious and free are masterpieces of
Impudent mendacity. Rut the man Is
not only a ruthless and greedy tyrant
at home. He has long been an Inter
national nuisance, and sooner or Inter,
by one power or by another, that nui
sance will have to be abated."
The Hague Telegrauf says; "The dis
pute Is not of a private or commercial
character, like previous dltllcultles bo
tween Venezuela and the Rrltlah, Ger
mnn and American governments,
which were more or less of a private
nature, the object being to obtain sat
isfaction for u claim, which Is not
made In the case of Holland. The
question Is rather one of sovereignty
and national honor and Is not suscep
tible of solution by menus of arbitra
tion." "Should Holland blockade Lu.Guayra
she may reckon on the support of Eu
rope and America," says the Paris
Temps. "Thus to chastise the arro
gance of the dictator might afford an
opportunity for obtaining n settlement
nil round of Venezuela's outstanding
dltllcultles with the other powers."
FAIR PLAY FOR RAILROADS.
Organization Forms'4 to Secure "Square
Deal" For Carriers.
Representatives of the principal rall
way supply companies hnve formed an
organization for the purpose of pro
moting u bettor understanding letween
the public and the carriers. George A.
Post of the Standard Coupler company
Is president of the new organization,
which has adopted the name of tho
Railway Business association, the prin
cipal olllce of which will be lu New
York. The Westinghouse Air Brake
company, American Locomotive com
pany, Pettlbone, Mulllken & Co. of
Chicago, Union Switch and Signal com
pany nud other important concerns .are
represented In the list of otllcers and
It Is declared (lint the alms of the
organization will be "to advocate and
In nil honorable ways endeavor to se
cure fair play to railways In matters
of federal aud state legislation, to favor

munerative to the railways, to arouse

by serving railways and the manufac
turing Interests allied therewith u
sense of active loyalty to their com
mon Interests, which shall manifest It
self In defense thereof when subjected
to unjust attack."
In Place of Freeh Fruit.
Row that fresh fruit Is getting scarce
the. housewife is compelled to use
larger quantities of currunts, raisins
and other dried fruits. With a better
understanding of the food value of
these products there has been an im
mense Increase In the amouut used In
the household. Currants are especially
vnluuble because they are a naturally
dried grape, and when water is added
they become practically the equivalent
of fresh fruit, containing more than
75 per cent of nutriment.
There are hundreds of ways in which
currants can be used In bread, cakes and
pastry. TIiIh Is h recipe thnt has late
ly beeu prepared by one of New York's
celebrated food experts:
Currant Gateau Cream. One pound
of currunts, three-fourths ounce of
gelatin, three-fourths pint of wnte,
three ounces of sugar and one-fourth
pint of claret. Sonk the currants und
boll them lu the water till tender.
Sieve, add the other Ingredients and
the gelatin dissolved In a llttlo water.
Pour Into a mold, turn out when set.

promoter, llnnnolor and "leu trust" or
gnniier, and Alfred II. Curtis, prcsl
doul of tho National Hank or Nortl
America, both of Whom arc Under lu
dlrtmeutu, rharglng them jointly with
violation at tho national banking laws
came with tho swearing In of Curth
ns the llrst witness for tho defens
lu tho trial before Judge Hough lu the
United States court at Now York.
llefore tho beginning of Mr. Curtis
examination the court had heard ar
gutuentB on behalf of both defendants
on motions to dismiss the Indlctmonts
and had yielded on a few minor points
dismissing the counts charging con
splracy and mts-approprlntlon In out
specific Instance, but maintaining fifty
Ave counts charging over-certification,
making of false reports, misapplies
tlon and tho uso of funds of deposit
ors for speculative purposes.
Before calling tho former president
of tho suspended Dank of North Amer
ica to the stand lu IiIb own behalf,
former Judgo Olcott, Curtis' attorney,
announced that he had persuaded his
cllont "to toll all tho facts."
Mr. Curtis began his testimony by
relating his early career In the bank
ing business. Ho had started at four
teen In tho office of a Wall street
broker, ho said, graduating ten years
a 50 to a clorksblp In tho Bank of the
State of Now York, tho institution sub.
sequcntly purchased' by Morse and
merged with the Bank of North Amer
ica. There ho had advanced through
the various grades to the position of
cashier, In which capacity ho had
over-certified checkB to the amount o
?40,000,000, ho declared.
PRINCE TAKE8 AIR JOURNEY.
Count Zeppelin Makes Flight, Carry

Prince Henry of Prussia spont sovt
ernl hours In tho air as the guest of
Count Zeppelin, who made an ascen
sion In his remodeled airship at Fried
rlchshnfen, Tuesday. Not only did the
prince thoroughly enjoy his experi
ence, but ho sat at the steering wheel
for many miles of the flight, guiding
the movements, of tho craft and com
pelling It to execute all kinds of com
Prlnco Henry's satisfaction with the
great flight was unbounded nnd ho
gave expression to It In a telegram
which ho sent to tho emperor: "Under
Zeppelin's guidance I felt Just as safe
as on my own UagBhlp."
Captain Mlschko also was a passen
ger when .the start wns made lu the
direction of Uberlinger, to the north
ward of Constance. With Count Zep
pelin himself at the wheel, the air
ship rose to an altitude of GOO feet,
and moving rapidly against a strong
wind, soon disappeared behind a bank
or clouds, soon messages began to
arrive from the towns In the Rhine
valley announcing the passago of the
airship, but about 2 p. m. a "Sonorous
sound from tho sky indicated that the
craft was returning. Soon It appeared
