The Trinut IHatrlrta Compared With j
Those of Other title.
A rec:nt census reiort shows that
there are M.000 houses in New York,
occupied by a number of families so
great as to imply thut there are I
nearly four families for every
house in the inetrojiolis. When it is
tccalled that there are thousands of
beautiful homes in New York occu
pied eat h by oue family only, that
miles of avenues and streets are
lined with houses each individually
owned ami occupied by oue family
group, it will be realized to what ex
tent in other jKrts of the city crowd
ing occurs, when to accomodate an
average of nearly four families to
each Iwuse the remaining houses
only are available.
Commring the condition of New
York with Philadelphia the difference
is most marked. In Philadelphia the
average number of families to each
house is one family and one-tenth,
as against three families and over
three-quarters in New York for each
house. In New York the average
for each house is 19 people, while in
Philadelphia the average is not 6
people per house. The death rate
tells the rest. Iu New York it is 28
in every 1,000, in Philadelphia 22 per
1,000. While New York has 1!) peo
ple to each house, Loudon has only
7, with a death rate 3 jer cent lower
than New York.
The extent of the crowding in New
York is mule painf ully apparent by
the statemeut of the national census,
which shows that out of a popula
tion of l,(iU0.(Hi(J no less a number
than 1,200,000 live in apartments,
flats and tenements. Still further is
this confirmed by the sanitary cen
sus made by the police in which it
w;is found that there were herded in
what the board of health designates
as the "tenement district" no less
than 270,000 families. This number,
excet-diug a quarter of a million fam
ilies. averaging five persons to each,
is so great us to excite surprise that
such a condition can exist in the
chief city of the new world, where
conditions of civilization, as illus
hated by the character and numlier
of homes, ought to have their most
perfect exemplification. But the
facts as presented in official reports,
in the death rate and in the person
al observations of men and women
who take a deep interest in the con

that the firing of a small pistol sets

while a watch consumes alout one

power, the energy of the bullet lieing
sufficient to keep the time for two

would therefore be worked for 2.000

In England and in many parts of

time lieen using for a horseshoe a
regular furiosity made of com
pressed leather. At the factory
where they are made three thick
nesses of common cowskin are
pressi-d into a steel mold, r.nd
while held in iosition by powerful
clamps are subjected to a bath of
some chemical preparation which
makes them surprisingly hard and
durable. It is claimed for these
shoes that they are much lighter and
last longer than those made of iron,
also that split hoofs are unknown in
horses constantly provided with
them. The shoe is perfectly smooth
on the bottom, uo calks iK'ing re

face to adhere even on the smoothest

shoo is hard and durable, it is also
very elastic, thus preventing sprains
and braises and making the horse's
step lighter and surer. Straw treat

centuries in Japan. Perhajs some
