ALL LAND IN HANDS OF FEW.
Now Yorkers Cannot Afford to Own \
Their Own Homes.
Fewer New Yorkers own tholr awn
homos tlmn the residents of any other
city In the world , says a writer In the
National Magazine. The reason IB a
simple one : the land Is so valuable
that none but the very wealthy can af
ford Its purchaso. Of the U91.G87 fam
ilies living on Manhattan Island only
10,310 hold tltlo to the houses they
occupy and If you will bring that little -
tlo pad and pencil into play again you
will learn that 94 out of every 100 fam
ilies make monthly payments to n
landlord. Whan those , families move ,
as they are constantly doing , It seemn
only necesstiry to take the family pho
tographs from off the mantel so com
pletely has their method of life been
systematized. Aa for the landlords ,
they are mightier In wealth and ten
ants than any feudal lords of old as
forsooth the Asters , whoso Immense
multitude- dwellings house a greater
number of people than are contained
In a city of the slzo of Hartford , Conn. ;
Seattle , Wash. , or Nashville , Tonn.
FREDDY HAD HIS EXCUSE , TOO.
Took Cue from Ingenious Explanation
Made by Chum.
Two llttlo youngsters shambled
penitently into the classroom long
uftcr the school had opened for the
morning session , says the Circle.
"JJoys , come to my desk limned- !
utely , " said the teacher.
The meek llttlo lads walked to the
teacher's desk and stood looking help
lessly at their feet.
"Tommy , why are you late this
morning ? " asked the teacher.
"I overslept myself , ma'am , " began
Tommy. "You see , teacher , I dreamed
I was going to take a railroad trip. I
Just got to the station when I woku
up an' found it was 'way past school |

Last Moments of Great Musician.
A letter written by Count Grzy.
mala , who was an ardent admirer of
Chopin , has been made public In Lon
don by Eduarll Zeldenrust. In It the
last moments of Chopin are thus re
ferred to : "A few hours before ho
died ho asked Mine. Potocka to sing
some melodies by Rossini and Bellini
und this she did with sobs in her , ,
voice. Listening to her voice ho
passed away. " Speaking of the funeral
noral the writer says : "Mozart's re
qulom and his own funeral murcl :
were performed with the assistance o
Lablncho , Vlardot and the concert so
clety. It was characteristic of the
times that the artists should have
asked -,000 franca for this last trib
ute to Chopin. One would have
thought that pride would have kep
them from selling their gifts on such
an occasion. "

The Types of Cats.
There are a number of classes o
Persian cats , the division betweer
them being purely arbitrary and based
on the color of the fur. The mos
beautiful of all the Persians is the
pure white. They are. however , ver
hard to keep clean , and a dirty white
cat Is certainly anything but an orna
ment about one's rooms. It Is unfor
tunate that many white cats are deaf ,
so when ono is making a purchase of
a cat that color it is a wise precau
tion to test the hearing. Another fall
ing which white cats have , in common
with all light colored cats , is that their
constitutions are not so vigorous as
these of the dark haired cats. Su
Noise , at first cultivated In this land
by the Indians , has reached Its climax
In the college yell. It is used at po
litical conventions , at christenings and
at women's clubs. No monument was
necessary for the man who first in
vented nolso. His work lives after
Nolso is used by cities , which bavo
