New York doctors who do business in fashionable circles are getting ready for an epidemic of perityphlitis. , Most people would regard their edu cation as complete if they could under stand an art criticiam after they have fend it J. Pierpont Morgan's grandfather was the author of a poem beginning: "An old red hen with yellow legs. She laid her master many eggs." The poet's grandson gathers them In. Optimistic people are Inclined to be Jieve that there is "no more Jury brib ing, police bribing and councllmanlc bribing than ever, but that more of the bribers are being caught Success to the catchers. That man and woman, aged 77 and 75 respectively, who were forced to elope for the purpose of getting mar ried, may well say: "And, oh. Lord, save us from the wrath of our children and our children's children." Perhaps we are coming to railways without rails. Several automobile own ers In New York are planning to con struct on Long Island fifty miles of road, to cross other roads above or be low grade, so that they may have a free course on which to speed their ma chines. From running a single motor car on such a road to attaching one or more "trailers" is a short step, and the next leads to passenger and freight ser vice. Even if special roads are not built for their accommodation, It is probable' that automobile coach lines nill be run as feeders to the steam or electric lines In districts where it would not pay to lay a track. smokers actively engaged In the pup suit are troubled either with typhoid fever or lockjaw. Lockjaw would ma terially interfere with the enjoyment of a cigar or a pipe. And as to typhoid fever the victim is like the character of Bret Harte, concerning whom it was said, "the subsequent proceedings in terested him no more." As to influenza, diphtheria, and consumption, however, the case is different. Every smoker put to it for defense of My Lady Nicotine will testify that he has had at diver and sundry times touches of one if uot all of these diseases. These genus must be smoked out and destroyed. What more natural method than the one so universally employed? GOOD Short Storiej j Three people were drowned the other day in Michigan, because one of the rowing party could not restrain hi playfulness to the extent of refraining from rocking the boat. Every summer, besides the number of drowning acci dents that human power is unable to avert, are these that owe their tragedy to foolhardiness of some trifler. There is no way of preventing such casual ties, as a mental examination is not re quired of persons who hire row-boats, and oarsmen are never questioned as to whether in their opinion the same Ideals of playfulness ought to prevail upon both water and land. It would be well, however, If some certificate of sane conduct were required of doubtful looking members of rowing parties, or some arrangement made whereby the man with a propensity for rocking him self In the cradle of the deep might when the rocking reached the spilling point upset only his own playful self. Ministers seem to be waking up to the necessity of self-improvement Not long ago the Congregatioualist suggest ed that ministers take a Sunday off now and then to listen to their fellow preachers and profit thereby. Xow Rev. Bobert Zaring, pastor of one of the Methodist churches In Indianapolis, urges that there be Inspectors of ser mons as there are meat and milk In spectors. If Mr. Zarlng's proposition should be carried out the Inspectors would doubtless find many "embalm ed" sermons which long ago bad their day and well merit decent burial. They would also discover many a bacillus it heresy that should be exterminated before the contagion has spread to the congregation and through that to the world at large. They would advise the preacher to leave his study, and even fait closet, to come In contact with life as It la to-day and not as It was two :enturies ago. They would organize Institutes and summer schools for min isters that they may advance beyond the limit reached years ago at theolog ical seminaries. Teachers are forced by frequent Inspection and frequent examinations to progress beyond the attainments made In college and nor mal schools. The requirements made f the minister should be no less than those made of other educators. Mr. taring's proposition provoked a smile When It was first offered, but there It kound common sense st the bottom of It and preachers will do well to take the bint America does not do thimcs by halves Every day she smashes some old-world 1 -TV- t . .. mtruijr. ime our universities, for in stance. The ivy of years clings to the sacred walls of Oxford and Cambridge. Heidelberg is honored by generations of learning. But there are Institutions of higher learning in this country that are scarcely out of their swaddling clothes as far as years Is concerned, and yet they are recognised the world over as unexcelled, some that are look ed upon as premier In certain special ties. And there are fresh-water univer sities In the newer cities of the United States whose progress is little less than amazing. Money can do a great deal, even in learning. The story of the Uni versity of Chicago Is an emphatic ex ample. From the financial point of view it takes on an aspect of a favor able deal successfully promoted. But while one multimillionaire has given $11,000,000 for Its upbuilding, other friends have gone down into their pock ets for $3,000,000, and their share alone would have been sufficient for an ex cellent start Still, it Is when the re sults are considered that the enternrlse grows in Interest. Its history runs back scarcely a decade, and yet the enroll ment during the past rear, according tn the figures announced at the convoca tion, was 4,530, or a total of almost 3,000 different students. Considering that post-graduate work receives the greater share of the attention, the fig ures assume even greater Import. The building of an Institution of such mag nitude In this short time, while main taining a standard recognized th- world over, is only another example of the American way of "doing things" umi uus R rrequently astounded the slower-going Europeans. j For years the weight of medical au thority baa been against the smoking habit The habitue of the cigar store has read with many misgivings the de liverances of the medical experts re specting the effect of nicotine on the ami lima aratam At Hhim ha hmm haan frightened to the verge of delirium tremens by the certain pronouncement that smoking la the cause of cancer. iboBt the only voice that has been raised m favor of tobacco-using la the secaainwsl mild saggestlon from some gkysfdaa who has urged that It pro- Now comes Dr. tt London authority, Who hM mad a special stady of the cs3w of tabaceo saoae opon the vari ces orjiUnw fond la the cavity of C mmtX Or.

J., a while ago. a weaver made application for more wages. It was refused. He went to his home and there he and his wife hanped themselves, and were later found dead by the neighbors. A rich contractor in New York drank poison and died. The weaver and his wife were not paupers. Thev had fir living. At no time had thev been In want If they were desrondeut their friends did not know it. The contract or, who represented the other end of the social scale, had health, money and no entanglements that those close to nim could discover. Then why did they kill themselves? The human mind Is to-day almost as much of a mvsterv as It was In the beginning. Life has not to all the same value It hag to you. It Is possible for a human being to be come tired of existence, even though surrounded by luxuries. It Is pos Mine lor me poor man to feel that the game la not worth the candle, even though his poverty is no more distress ing than usuaL The human being who is not resourceful, who cannot find In his own breast the Inspiration that makes life sweet and adds interest to the dally round of work or pleasure, often finds existence monotonous. That road leads to suicide and a newspaper story that generally closes with these words: "No reason Is known for the act" There Is a remedy. It Isn't found In the medical works, and few doctors prescribe it Stop thinking about yourseX. A ' cripple dragged himself along the pavement and drop ped a coin Into the blind beggar's hat I'm glad I'm not In the shape that fellow is," he said. There is the Idea. There Is always somebody worse off. Don't play the martyr. Don't Imagine that Fate Is dogging your footsteps. Be of use. The useful human being doesn't know the meaning of monoto ny. If you cannot distribute money, share kind words with those who need them. Be Interested, and leave death to the old man with the scythe. The weaver and the weaver's wife and the contractor were selfish when they de stroyed themselves. They wasted hap piness that could have been theirs for the asking. They looked at. a grave when they might have wltuessed the glory of the sun. Old-Time Kdncation. Now that there Is so much talk about education It Is Interesting to look back and see what a seventeenth century moralist had to say about the teaching of children. "We are in Pain to make them Scholars, but uot Men!" be wrote. "To talk, rather than to know, which Is the Canting. The first Thing obvious to Children Is wbat Is sensible; and that we make no Part of their Iludlmenu." But what is of most significance to us Is the same writer's appeal for tech nical education. "We press their Memory too soon, and puzzle, strain and load tbem with Words and Rules; to know Grammar and Rheoric and a strange Tongue or two, that It Is ten to one may never bo useful to tbem; Leaving their natural Genius to Mechanical and Physical or Natural knowledge uncultivated and neglected; wblcb wonld bo of exceed ing Use and Pleasure to them through the whole Coarse of tbolr Life." After all, says the London Chronicle, It la tat reformer rather 4bau the his torian who la forcoi to aao vain repe-tlSSoa. The Pioneer tells a story of a rat which on one occasion was caught alive on a ship and thrown overboard. A sea gull was floating by the side of the ship. Immediately there ensued a bat tle royal, and the rat strangled the seagull to death. He then sat upon the i-amiss of the 4rt-agu!l.. unfurled its left wing to catch the wind, and, working the right wing as an oar, set sail for the shore! In response to a missionary's spirals for various articles for use on an Afri can farm, a mllkiug-stool was sent to him from England. He gave It to the negro whose duty t was to milk the cows, with Injunctions to use It. On the first day the negro returned home from the cow-sbeds, bruised and bat tered, but with an empty pall. When the missionary asked for an explana tion, the negro replied: "Milk stool very nice, massa, but she won't sit on It!" j In 1802 Colonel Alexander, of Topeka, who was an intimate friend of Presi dent Lincoln, visited him at Washing ton, and found him In a greatly depress ed state of mind. "This being Presi dent Isn't all It Is cracked up to be, Is It, Mr. Lincoln?" Inquired Colonel Al exander. "No," said Lincoln, bis eyes twinkling momentarily; "I feel some times like the Irishman, who, after be ing ridden on a rail, said: 'Begorry, if It wasn't for the honor av th' thing, I'd rather walk!' " An Incident of the ceremonies at the unveiling of the Kochambeau statue In Washington, D. C, went far to prove that the American flag "stays put When the Countess Rochambeau pulled the halyard which caused the flags draping the statue to drop, every ves tige of the covering fell but one corner of the American flag, which persistent ly clung to a part of the work sur rounding the statue. "The flag stays put, remarked Secretary Hay to the President In an undertone, and the President, remembering his words, smiled broadly. The French flag read lly gave way the moment the rope was pulled, and there were a number of spectators ho were inclined to take the lii' liit at as an omen. Captain French E. Chaduick. C. S. N., who was commander of the flag ship New York dining the war with Spain, says that Kear Admiral Samp son was de.'ply and unaffectedly re ligions, and adds: "He was a strict observer of Sunday, but the fact that ou.-e. at least, he forgot the days of the week is Indicative of the intensity with which the duty In hand always seized him. Having called the captains aboard for consultation on the 4th of June (a Saturday) he said toward the close of the conference: I am going in to-mor row to attack the batteries, sr. have everything ready by daylight.' Cap tain Philip, who was most earnest In his religious convictions, at once spoke up: 'But, admiral, to-morrow is Sun day, and I don't believe In fighting on Sunday, unless the other fellow begins. I have always noticed that whoever be gins a Sunday fight gets licked.' Samp son at once said: 'I am glad you men tioned that. Jack; to tell the truth, I had forgotten the days of the week. 1 am no more a believer In fighting cm Sunday than you are.

At certain seasons, it Is said, the streams of that region are unnavl gable because of the clouds of mosqui toes. A peculiar snow observed on Mont Malet in the Alps has been reported by M. A. Brun. It Is called "Caucasian snow," and Is very porous, with grains reaching an eighth of an Inch in size. The slight adhesion of these grains gives great liability to avalanches. Attempts have been made to meas ure the light of the moonless night sky. Gavin J. Burns, an English astrono mer, has roughly estimated that the total light of one hemisphere equals that of one thousand first-magnitude stars, and Professor Simon Newcomb has perhaps more accurately found this total light to be equal to that of six hundred to eight hundred first magnitude stars. The brightness seems to be not entirely due to visible and Invisible stars. The zodiacal light and the gegenscheln, a midnight glow oppo site the sun, have been seen to extend across the heavens, and It Is suggested that these are but Intensifications of a general luminosity of the entire sky, due to some unknown cause. Wonderful stories are often told of the powers of vision possessed by siv age races.

The bell was visited by a large number of visitors during the day and the oflleers on guard had no difficulty In convincing spectators that nothing was wron with it.'" STUDENT LIFE AT OXFORD. What Young; Americans Who Go Then VMM Find. In undergraduate life at Oxford the student from America will find many Interesting features. He will, no doubt, be assigned to a college rather than be allowed to choose one, as the will of Cecil Ithodes expresses the desire "that the scholars holding the scholarships shall be distributed among the colleges of the University of Oxford, and not resort In undue numbers to one or more colleges only." There are twenty-two colleges In the university, all of which, educationally considered, are equal. Heasons of rank in life, of parental or local associations, of wealth, of religious tendencies, rather than reasons of a purely aca demic nature, lead an English boy tc choose one or another of these colleges. The colleges differ In externals. Some of them are rich, others poor; some of them are comparatively large three or klnrt KliqustM. In meeting a lady lo a public thor oughfare tn America a gentleman al ways waits for her bow of recogni tion before lifting his bat or address ing her. In Europe, however, the contrary Is the established rule, it being the geotieuiao's place to bow first, when, if the lady desires not to recognlzeblm, she Ignores his salu tations, thus giving the cut direct. It is not good form In any place for a lady to stop a gentleman in the street for the purpose of chatting with him, though she may with per fect propriety pause to speak if he take the Initiative. Prolonged talka in the street are not, however, con sidered good form, even between per sons of the same sex, the belter piau being to walk on slowly until tho conversation Is concluded.

Thus the power of an Indian to tell the sex of a deer at such a distance that distinguished features like antlers were invisible was found to rest upon his knowledge of the peculiar g ill of the male deer. Professor, A. E. Verrlll of Yale re gards the phenomena witnessed during the awful eruption of Mont Pelee In May as bearing out the theory that im mense quantities of explosive gases were evolved through the dissociation of oxygen and hydrogen from the wa ter on coming suddenly Into contact with hot lava, and that these gases, when ejected Into the atmosphere, cx- nloded above the crater, producing the terrible effects that were noted. Ac cording to this view, the Inhabitants of St. Pierre were killed by a sudden explosion of a vast volume of mingled oxygen and hydrogen, while the poi sonous hydrochloric acid gas, formed by the chlorine liberated from the sea water that had leaked into the volcano and was combined with some or tue hydrogen, quickly suffocated those who may have escaped death from the ex plosion.

As we looked back "c ra" mrunge ming. a common reed chair, such as you often see on the deck of a transatlantic liner, was hanging in the air to the ship's stern.

The Times-Democrat came out the next morning with startling headlines 'A Dastardly Attempt," 'The Emolem of American Independence, the Llberi Bell, Stolen. " 'lAst night was a sorrowful one in the city.' It said. 'When Philadel phia sent to New Orleans the grand old Liberty Bell, treasured not alone by the famed city of the East, but by the whole nation, as the precious em blem of national liberty, the people of the South generally, and of Iioulsiana particularly, responded warmly to this evidence of brotherly love offerej by the second clfy of the republic' "A long account of the reception of the bell and the care taken of It fol lowed, and the Times-Democrat said The spot on which It stood Is a scene of havoc. The car that bore It Is half consumed hy fire and Its ruined tim bers tell a story of wanton destruction almost without parallel. The trees that stood over it are no longer graceful and grand; half devoured by fire, their charred branches seem to cry aloud for vengeance. Last night when the pale moon shed her radiance over the great park, bathing It In a flood of sil ver light, when the grounds were calm and still and deserted by all save the watchful guard, this deed of wanton ness was done.' "Then came an account of the mount ing of the guard and the discovery of the fire.
