State Official Collects Statistics for
French Scientist Their Lot Hard.
A Boston stato official who has been
investigating tho subject for Prof.
Ffiedrlch Prlnzing of Paris, has dis
covered that Boston has moro widows
In proportion to its population, than
any other city in America, evou Chi
cago, Philadelphia, Now York and
other large centers. Tho young
widow, ho says, is ono of tho most
unfortunato of beings, and not nt all
tho gay butterfly which popular fancy
has pictured.
Prof. Prlnzing has collected a ro
markablo group of statistics which
show that poverty sorely oppresses
tho widow, and that sho Is moro sub
ject to Insanity, consumption, conflict
with tho law and death than hor mar
ried sister. All theso woes fall moro
heavily on the young widow. Dr. Prin
zing's opinion Is that tho stato should
tnako provision lor tho support of tho
widowed and their children, directly,
Instead of indirectly through hospitals
and insano asylums.

Prico is now able to sit up in bod

it is thought that in a short tlmo he

Record Is Believed to Be Two Miles
From Balloon.
Tho accounts of certain cat-like per
formances of several Now York work
men who recently fell great distances
and lauded right side up and unhurt
excited some incredulity. But a fall
of ninety feet or so, which was tho
height chronicled In ono of tho cases,
is a mere bagatelle compared with tho
drop experienced by a balloonist In
Danville, Ohio.
His irnmo is L. W. Snrtwell, nnd ho
full 1,200 feet. It hnppencd through
tho failure of his parachute to act,
says tho Aeronautical World, which Is
authority for tho facts, and ho struck
mo ground with such force that both
feet were driven six Inches Into tho
earth. Tho mnn sustained compound
fractures In both legs and tho se
verest shaking up of his life, but ho
wns not killed. Tho physicians who
attended him had no doubts of his re
covery. Tho case of two civil engineers who
fell a distance of two miles was differ
ent. Thoy would undoubtedly have
been killed except for a fortuitous cir
cumstance. Their bnlloon burst when
