A Wonderful Invention
A little group of men clustered about
a radiator In the office of a western
hotel recently fell to discussing the
growth of modern Invention. The
marvelous electrical development of
the last decade had boon duly com
mented upon and the usual remarks
made about the self-binder, sewing ma
chine, the linotype and the perfecting
press. Suddenly a railroad man spoke
up and said:
"Gentlemen, all you have mentioned
are great inventions, but there is ono
that has not been mentioned and upon
it depends In large measure the suc
cess of all that you have spoken about
I refer tt ths little rim of metal pro
tecting downward from every car
Trtieel the Hange. Do you know that
ventions of the age. Uporf that little
flange depends tho speed and safety
of our railroad trains? Without It
our railroad trains would bo as slow
as stage coaches and as unsafe ae ft
gasolene stovo left In charge of a cart
"That littlo rim of metal, scarce
half-Inch higher than the surface of
tho car wheol, keeps the cars on the
track, makes them take the curves,
keeps them steady and permits all the
wonderful distribution of Industrial
products that wo love to boast about.
What would bo the good ot tho lino
typo If there wero no way of getting
tho groat dally newspapers across the
country? What would be tho good ot
increased facilities for harvestint:
grain If thoro wero no way of gotttng
that grain to market rapidly? Whn
you come right down to the bottom
facts you will find that the utility of
all these great modern inventions
about which so much Is heard, depend.
In a largo measure upon the poor and
littlo known flange upon overy car
wheol In tho country."
The coal strike arbitration commlf
tee did well to mako a personal tour
of the mines. After a few hours In the
dark, damp and low galleries, -with
aching backs and burning eyeballs, the
commissioners wore in a better condi
tion o Judge fairly between employers
and employes. Judge Gray had to give
up and return to the surface bofore the
tour of Inspection was well begun, and
othor members of the commission were
almost exhausted when they emerged
Into the light of day. But hundreds
of thousands of men must spend their
days in these galleries, working hour
after hour in cramped positions, and
all for a dally average of S1.C0. Few
people have any appreciation of the
hardships and dangers of a miner's
The Money of Pools.
In the safes of the gambling houses
raided on Tuesday night were found
fat rolls of money. It was counted,
not being In tho usual interpretation
"apparatus" of gambling, but it wae
evident that the' total was very great,
probably in the hundreds of thou
sands. A part of this money was puaway
for safe keeping by tho gamblers them
selves, a part by bookmakers and pool
room keepers. Vast as it is, it Is only
the "petty cash" for current business
of a small portion of the men who by
favor of the police have been parting
fools from their money in this city.
On what a gigantic scale must the
whole business be organized! How
continuous, ,how uninterrupted, how
bold and confident must have been Its
operations! Now York World. . '
Who Hade The Tariff.
On the subjdet of "tariff revision by
its frieTTds" the Terre Haute (Ind.) Ga
zette (dem.) has this catechism: "Who
made the sugar tariff? Oxnard and
Havemeyer. Who made the steel tar
iff? The ironmongers. Who made the
tariff on hides? The packers. Who
mado tho tariff on cotton goods? The
New England mills. Who made the
tariff on shoes? The New England
and Philadelphia factories? Who
mado the tariff on locomotives? The
Baldwin Locomotive works. Who
made the tariff on salt? The salt
trust Who mado the tariff on paper?
The paper trust"
