Auntie Graft Has a Word
Mr Editor I noticed in vour
I able paper of last week a letter asking
for light on the water question Per
haps I can supply an item that will as
sist your correspondent to shape his
ideas on the subject On last Sunday
I spent two hours watering trees and
grass at my house and noted the record
made by the meter In the 120 seconds
tho meter recorded 6S cubic feet con
sumed which reduced to gallons made
514 gallons If that rate per hour is
carried out for the season the total
amounts to 188 thousand gallons For
more than twenty years the water com
pany willingly furnished that 188 thous
and gallons for 51000 or yiy cents per
thousand They are now engaged in an
attempt to override the existing ordi
nance fixing a 81000 charge for tho sea
son and to persuade the pepul that
they cant afford to do it for less than 30
cents per thousand or S5640 for the sea
son Can they fool all the people
long enough time to bring that to pass
Or will a new municipal plant be re
quired Yours truly

Method of Marking Meat In the Great
Beef Markets I
There are about fifty men in the me
tropolis says the New York Sun who
know how to make meat skewers keep
a record of their business transactions t
These men are tho representatives of
the Chicago packers who sell thou-
sands of quarters of beef every day to
The work of these men Is accom
plished with great rapidity Frequent
ly they are making sale to a dozen
butchers at the same time and to re
cord these sales in a book would not
only consume a lot of time but would
be difficult as all quarters of beef look
As soon as a sale is made the sales
man sticks skewers into the quarter
selected by the butcher The skewers
are placed in such a way that each
butchers purchases are easily picked
out when the time oomes for deliver
ing them
As some of the salesmen have as
many as a hundred customers in a
lay it is evident that as many combina
tions of the skewers have to be form
ed In no case are more than three
skewers used on a piece of beef
In one big icebox there are twenty
rows of quarters witli forty quarters
in each row In each piece of beef
were skewers placed at various angles
straight up two of them crossed and
in every conceivable combination
I know by these skewers whom each
piece belongs to said the salesman
Every beef house salesman lias his
own signs
This method of marking the meat
serves several purposes in addition to
that of saving time A salesman from
another house could not come in here
and find out what my customers have
bought by looking at the skewers
which would bo easy enough if the
meat had their names on
Neither can one butcher find out
what quality of beef another is buy
ing I could make a thousand signs
without using more than three skewers
on any one piece of meat
Except In the South and West Most
Riders Take What Is Offered
A well known horseman in speaking
of the sport of riding in the United
States recently said
Although there are a number of
good riders in this country very fow
men except in the west and south
seem to know or care much about the
saddle that is the way it is built
They simply take what their dealer
gives them In England it is usual for
riders to have their saddles made to
order anil they generally know what
to order too
A good saddle fits both the horse
and the man It should be roomy ev
erywhere and especially so in the pan
els if you are heavy The throat should
not be so narrow as to cause pain or
so wide as to wabble Plain flaps are
most comfortable and businesslike A
felt pad or at least a good saddlecloth
should always be used and to give a
trim appearauce it should be cut to the
outlines of the saddle It should be
frequently washed and sunned Stir
rups should be open wide and heavy
so that the feet can be readily freed in
case of a spill
A proper fitting saddle will stick
with very loose girths and you can
find where it fits by walking the horse
around a few minutes before mountimr
with the girths unbuckled The horse
will shift the saddle to the exact place
where it Is most comfortable When
through with your ride remove the
saddle at once and bathe the back with
cold water following this if possible
with an alcohol shampoo Cleveland

A Dangerous Precedent
The best case which I have seen of
law versus justice and common sense
is one which Montaigne relates as hav
ing happened in his own day Some
men were condemned to death for
murder The judges were then inform
ed by the officers of au Inferior court
that certain persons in their custody
had confessed themselves guilty of the
murder in question and had told so cir
cumstantial a tale that the fact was
placed beyond all doubt Nevertheless
it was deemed so bad a precedent to
revoke a sentence and show that the
law could err that the iunocent men
were delivered over to execution Lou
don Graphic
Practical Patriotism
In the early part of the war between
the states when patriotic merchants
and manufacturers were sending their
clerks and workmen to the field with
a promise to provide for the wants of
their families as well as to continue
their salaries duringtheir absence a
very enthusiastic landlady of Xew
York offered to allow her hoarders
bills to run on as usual should any of
them desire to go for the defense of
the nation
A Fallacy
A woman has no sense of humor
remarked the acrid man
That is a fallacy answered his
wife that has arisen from the fact
that most of them are not so stupid as
to laugh at their husbands efforts to
be clever Washington Star
