Cruel Nw York. So let j.
Whoever 6uoull write an analysis of
; affairs in New York today and should
loavo oui me Biram i kucihi biuuihuu
would miss tho most serious thing in the
life of the metropolis. We are apt to
think tho hardcht thing a man can do is
to come to New York, establish a f oot
hold and eventually make a fortune, as
so many thousands of country boys have
done. But my observation is that if
you will go to those same men after they
have put the city under their feet, they
will tell you that what they have accom
plished was nothing as compared with
what they have yet to do and that is to
get into society. I do not mean McAl
lister's Four tlundred when I say "soci
ety:" 1 mean polite society of any sort.
I mean the entree into any one of a hun
dred far more desirable circles than Mc
Allister's band of self instituted aristo
crats. The day was when a man had the
entree of any 6uch circle if he was a re
spectable man of any profession or if he
was rich. That is the casein the smaller
cities today. Any doctor, lawyer, judge
or rich man, whose reputation is clean,
can instantly gain admission to the
nicest circles in the Bmall cities. But
he cannot do bo in New York. The only
sure passport to 6uch circles that I know
of in New York today is to be born in
such a circle. The next best thing is to
boast a commission in the army or navy.
Tho city is old and rich and suspicious
of all newcomers. That makes its so
ciety the most rigid and cruel in Amer
ica. Julian Ralph in Providence Jour
nal. Why Canned Salmon Is Cheap.
When one comes to think of it it seems
quite wonderful that one 6hould be able
to buy a pound of salmon in a can from
the P;icific coast for twenty-five cents.
The frozen fish costs forty cents a pound
at least, while the unfrozen artk-le
ranges in eastern markets from one dol
lar np. Besides, the manner in whic h
each can is made to contain a segment
of salmon perfectly fitted into it appears
most surprising, the bones, even to the
larger vertebra?, melting m tho mouth
without requiring so much as a crunch
between the teeth and the red flesh sep
arating in beautiful clean flakes.
Yet salmon would be very much
cheaper than at present were it not that
the great canners of Alaska have formed
a combination to restrict the product.
This is unfortunate for consumers per
haps, bat lucky certainly for the fish,
which would bo wiped out altogether
within five years at the most if the com
panies engaged in their capture had a
market for all they could produce at
profitable rates. The methods employed
are the most destructive conceivable, in
asmuch as the fishermen stretch seines
across the mouths of the rivers and take
the fish which are going np the stream
to spawn. There is a law against this
sort of thing, but it is not enforced
Eventually, doubtless, the supply of this
valuable finny game will run out and
artificial propagation will have to be re
sorted to. Washington Star.
Insomnia and Nervousness.
There can be no doubt that many per
sons suffer from insomnia which had its
origin, or at least its principal strength,
in their own nervous apprehension that
they are oi" are about to be afflicted with
it. Any one of a dozen causes may in
duce wakefulness, and yet the person
lying in bed with the faculties alert at
the moment when they would naturally
be expected to be wrapped in slumber
has nine times out of ten, or ninety-nine
times in a hundred. nothing serious to
apprehend. The stomach may not be in
quite its normal condition and there is
no more potent cause of wakefulness.
Now an hour ten minutes even
seems a long time in the middle of the
night, when a person wishes to be sleep
ing and cannot. If a sensation of dread,
of apprehension, is allowed to enter the
mind, such a period simply becomes in
terminable. The nervous apprehension
increases the difficulty, and feeding
upon itself the derangement may quite
possibly increase till it becomes a dan
gerous malady. Good Housekeeping.
How to Save Money.
Some men plead poverty when they
are well off. Gilhooly is one of these.
His landlord said to him:
"I want you to pay your rent right
"I haven't got any money."
"But you have got to pay it any
how." "Now, yon look here, if you keep on
dunning me for that rent when I've not
got a cent do you know what 111 do? I
don't like to do it, but you'll goad me
"What will you do?".
"Ill buy me a house for cash and put
a stop to this paying by the month."
Silence Unkind Criticism.
"This world could be made better,"
said Mrs. French-Sheldon with emphasis,
"if we would exercise more magna
nimity in our judgment of other people's
motives, and by devoting ourselves to
the accomplishment of some fixed object,
ambitious or otherwise, which will give
scope to latent qualities and develop new
ones, hence tending to break down preju
dice by self enlargement. By silencing
the unkind criticism which maj be pro
voked and even deserved. By recount
ing the good rather than the bad even of
those inimical to us." New York World.

DRAFTY ENGLISH HOUSES.
In England Homes Are Devoid of Mod
ern Comforts or Conveniences.
The average dwelling house in any
class upper, middle or lower built
within a year is constructed almost pre
cisely on the lines in vogue at the begin
ning of the century. In England there
has been in ninety years no such ad
vance in domestic architecture, with re
gard to both convenience and style, as
we have noted in the United States in
the last decade. The Englishman may
explain this by alleging that he built
better in 1800 than we did in 1882. In
this he will not be altogether wrong,
but he will be supported by fewer facts
than he imagines.
The British c.irienter has not yet mas
tered the art of making a window.
There is always a gale blowing in around
the sashes during the winter, whether
the outside air be calm or raging. The
more heat you get in a room and by
lamps and gas you can contrive to raise
the temperature the greater is the rush
of cold air from without. It forces its
way around the window sashes and the
doors in obedience to a natural law.
An English house is drafty, whether
it be the dwelling of a peer or a peasant.
The doors are hung even worse than tho
windows. In the first place there are no
thresholds, and there is a gaping space
between the floor and the bottom of the
door. The room in which I am now
writing has an admirable specimen of an
English door. I have just measured the
yawning crevices around it. Between
the floor and the bottom of the door
there is a space one-half an inch wide,
extending across the entire breadth of
the door. Around the other three 6ides
of the door there is a space one-quarter
of an inch wide. All the doors in the
place (which is not the work of a "jerry
builder," but is what the British call "a
high class" and expensive structure) are
hung in the same fashion. Imagine,
then, the number of portieres and thick
rugs necessary to exclude the drafts.
The halls of an English house are un
heated. Drafts are accordingly increas
ed, for the cold air will alwaj-s rush
from the chilly halls into the apart
ments of high temperature. Screens,
portieres, rugs, heavy window hangings
are essential in every room. Of course
these things darken an apartment. Thus
you can only break the currents of air
in a London dwelling by adding to the
depressing gloom of the almost sunless
An American housekeeper setting up
an establishment hero misses the nu
merous and capacious closets of the
Yankee domicile. Closet making is an
unknown art to the Nineteenth century
British builder. I know of any number
of new and expensive dwellings both
fiats and houses in which there is not a
hanging closet. The most you can do is
to provide a few cupboards in the
"chimney jogs." For clothing you must
have wardrobes set up in your rooms,
monopolizing space and being as cheer
ful to gaze upon as sarcophagi. Odds
and ends you must etow away as best
yon can. Cellars, in the American sense,
are unheard of. A small dungeon for
coals or a penitential cell for wines ful
fills the British housekeeper's notion of
a cellar. "Set tubs" are usually reserved
for the "mansions of the great."
The bathroom is the latest innova
tion in English houses of the better
class, but it is still an innovation. The
clumsy tin tub, a yard and a half in
width and six inches in depth, continues
to be the Briton's favorite instrument
for the matutinal ablution. In this un
wieldy contrivance, brought into his
chamber in the morning, John Bull
takes his frigid splash. His aversion to
bathrooms is akin to his horror of gas
"above the drawing room." J. B. pre
fers to go to bed by candle light. He
has a notion that gas will suffocate him
in his sleep. Perhaps he cannot trust
himself to shut off the illuminant by
turning the "tap." London Cor. Boston
Several Common Phrases.
Some of our idiomatic phrases are
amusing rather than didactic. Take, for
instance, the very common remark made
when some one of the company has told
aharmless secret "You have let the cat
out of the bag." It is at once a figure of
speech and a picture, but a veritable
bugbear to a foreigner not versed in the
mysteries of our language. The same
idea is expressed in another idiom,
"You've tipped up the apple cart." A
phrase that has an expressive meaning
is one which epitomizes whole volumes
of advice "Keep a Etiff upper lip."
Detroit Free Press.
"If I had half a chance I'd marry," re
marked a handsome millionaire bachelor
to a good looking girl.
"But you never will have," she as
serted. "Why not?' he asked, somewhat taken
"Because," and she smiled in a way
that fascinated him, "every chance in
your case is a whole one."
It was the merest chance she took,
but it netted her a million and a man.
