finite extraordinary , nil this pother
about n man of only -in being too old
for n maiden of 17. Why , mo innn ,
in England no gentleman thinks of
assuming matrimonial ties until ho
la 40 or more. Deuced strange , these
dashed American ideas most astonishing
Houl. So we-all who
ishinglion my -
have been bothering our noddles about
the matter will just luive to let It gent

Senator Timothy D. Sullivan , who IB
bolter known an "Ulg Tim , " has prepared -
pared for his annual February dlstrl-
bntlon of shoeH among his constitu
ents by ordering 5,000 pairs from n
IMnghnmton factory. "Dig Tim" hns
specified the best quality of leather
and workmanship in Oiling his con
tract nnd the footgear that will soon
bo distributed among the poor of the
oust side will bo waterproof , durable
nnd of a It hid usually retailing for $4.
For many years "lllg Tim" has made
it a custom to distribute several thou
sand pairs of shoos on n certain date
in February , which Is rumored to bo
the anniversary of some important
event in his life. Exactly what it is
that is thus so munificently commem
orated , nobody knows but Me. Sulli
van , and he has neglected to explain.
On board the Kronprlnz
which is now nearlng New York , is
Count Albert Apponyi , formerly Hun
gary's minister of public instruction ,
who is coining to this country to advance -
vance the cause of International peace.
Ho will bo the principal speaker at a
great pcaco meeting in Carnegie hall ,
February 1C , taking for his subject ,
"Somo Practical Difficulties of the
Peace Problem In Europe. " Several
other distinguished Hungarians arc in
the party.
All reports to the contrary notwith
standing , Julius Caesar Is still very
much alive. Ho arrived in Now York
recently from Germany , and on a mis-
sionx of conquest , although a purely
commercial one. Julius now owns a
wall paper factory near Cologne , Ger
many , nnd will visit various American
cities to get acquainted with his cus
tomers , present and prospective.
Dry goods merchants who have visit
ed the city within the last few weeks
have placed exceptionally liberal or
ders with the Jobbers and manufactur
ers. Practically every merchant and
buyer interviewed has stated that busi
ness prospects are excellent , and near
ly all have commented on the higher
grades of goods now demanded by
their customers. Cheap and shoddy
merchandise now llnds no purchasers ,
and , in the dry goods trade , the de
mand is now all for the better grades
of fabrics.
One of New York's most distinguish
ed citizens , John Mitchell , the labor
leader , is today celebrating his forty-
first birthday. As vice president of
Mho , American Federation of Labor ,
and chairman of the trade agreement
department of the National Civic Fed
eration , Sir. Siitchell now finds it nee-
oa ary to spend most of his time in
the metropolis. His home , however ,
is at Wount Vernon , a pretty little
suburban city just beyond the north
ern city limits , but practically a part
f > t New York. For some time ho lias
interested himself largely In-projects

"on ft most complete collection of sta
tistics , 1)9 ) asseits that more than n
hundred workmen arc killed dally in
the United States , on an average.and
that the number of killed and maimed
annually reaches the stupendous to
tal of ouC.OOO. The annual number of
accidents of all kinds to workmen , ho
says , is over 2,000,000. Compared with
the number of men employed in In
dustries , three times as many are an
nually killed in this country as in any
country In Europe.
Although the actual anniversary was
yesterday , the observance of the ceiv
tonnial of the birth of Horace Gree
ley will continue throughout the
month. In order that school children
and their parents , as well , may be
come familiar with the career , the
aims and the ideals , of the great jour
nallst , a series of public lectures ir
the city schools has been arranged
and will continue through February
Greele > 's greatest monument is , o
course , the New York Tribune , whlcl
will reach the mature ago of three
score years nnd ten during the present
ent year , having been established bj
Greeley in April. 1841. At that Unit
.Mr. Greeley announced the policy o
the Tribune as "devoted to 'tho Inter
ests of labor , to liberal sentiment !
nnd generous purposes , to temperanc <
in all things , to inflexible morallt ;
and to the exposition and defence o
the principles of a beneficent am
wise national policy. "
In connection with the cxhlbitioi

Several hundred youngsters In al
parts of the city were Interviewed 01
the subject , One of the question
nnkvd wan , "I low often do you go to
Iho picture shows ? " To this Inquiry
a little girl responded , "I go just about
an often as my mother will let me. "
About once a week was the average
for enjoying such delights. Among
the boys , there wns expressed a do-
elded preference for picture plays
dealing with cowboys nnd Indians.
From thin It IB to be derived that , al
though Mr. Ileadlean d the flourishing
dime-novel Industry ho founded are
nllko dead , the Interest In "wild west"
exploits continues keen among the
youthful population. The dramatic
tastes of the girls , however , were not
do definitely expressed. Few of the
girls exhibited any marked prefer
ences. On the whole , hpwever , the
feminine critics agreed with the 10-

Y one who has watched u group
of small boys diving from the
docks of our seacoast cities
docs not need a scientist to
ell him thill they are thoroughly nt
lomo In the water , but the scientist
nny suggest thnt this "nt homeness"
B nn Instinct transmitted from remote
ancestors In the sllurlnn ngc and In
upport of this view will point out
hat human brings in the cnrly stages
of their development exhibit certain
Ishllkc characteristics , which warrant
the belief that away back in dim an-
.Iquity our ancestors were quite as
well adapted to water as we now nro
o land.
The practical application of the above
reflections is tbnt bathing has a wide
range of usefulness aside from its
cleansing effect Every self respecting
American citizen desires to bo clean
and will bathe for that purpose more
or less frequently , but the mistake
should not bo made of looking upon
the bath simply as a cleansing proc
ess. Possibly for the reasons suggest
ed above the mere contact with water
stimulates and invigorates the body
entirely apart from the Influence of
: cinpcrnturc and the removal of dirt.
Warm water and pure soap are con
sidered the essentials for a cleansing
bath , but a cold bath , followed by vig
orous rubbing , will accomplish nil that
s really necessary for cleanliness.
Dangers of Warm Bathing.
The vast amount of supposed dirt
removed by the Turkish bath is most
ly epithelial scales from the various
layers of skin. To remove an excessive
amount of this scarf skin may impair
ts protective qualities ; hence the ad
visability of not tnkiug the Turkish or
Russian bath oftcncr than once a
week. However , the warm bath gives
n greater feeling of confidence in one's
cleanliness than the cold bath nud is
doubtless beneficial if not employed
too often and to the exclusion of the
more valuable and tonic cold bath.
It is u good plan to spray or sponge
the neck and chest with cold water
after finishing the warm , cleansing
bath. This precaution should always
bo taken by those who rely solely on
the warm bath , especially if they
bathe every day ; otherwise undue sus
ceptibility to colds may develop. As
a rule , the warm bath should bo taken
In the evening.
Most people who have employed the
cold shower or plunge will testify to
its delightful and invigorating effects ,
but there is no reason why it should
bo forced upon delicate children or
feeble adults.
Baths For Babies.
A daily bath for the young baby is
of the utmost Importance. At Drst the
temperature of the water should bo 00
degrees F. , but by the end of the flrst
month it may be reduced to 70 de
grees F.
When the child reaches eighteen
months a cold sponge may bo given
as a finish to the warm bath.
Delicate children who have not been
thus trained may bo-gradually Inured
to the cold bath and enjoy Its benefits
if caution is used. For such children
the temperature of the water should
bo warm or tepid at first nnd dally reduced -
duced until it Is obvious that a vigor
ous and healthy reaction will not fol
low n further reduction.
It Is really dangerous , not to say
cruel , for obstinate-nurses or parents
to force an anaemic child with a pool
circulation to take a cold bath from
which It Is physically incapable of reacting
Very often the cold shower or sponge
bath Is well borne if one stands In n
tub of warm water
Value of the Cold Bath.
The cold bath is n most valuable nerv
DUB nnd circulatory stimulant When
well borne It Improves the circulation
not only in the skin , but in the remot
cst recesses of the vital organs.
The cold bath trains the nerve ccn
ters that control the production oi
body heat and those that control tb (
blood vessels In such a way that thi

Is ( lie pin I olvlMlom to be. moderate
In thin us in nil things.
The lee cold liath la to be avoided by
those suffering from heart or kidney
trouble or rheumatism , but such sub
JectH may Mill enjoy a daily tepid
bath , especially If It Is followed by n
vigorous rubbing of the skin with n
coarse towel. Also these subjects may
harden themselves against colds by
lightly sponging the neck nnd chest
with cool water.
The best time for the cold bath Is
before breakfast. Following the bath ,
vigorous rubbing with n coarse towel
nnd a few exercises adapted to the
strength and endurance of the Individ
ual are advisable.
A very valuable measure In cases
of nervous exhaustion nnd occasion
ally In cases ot Insomnia Is the drip
sheet Imih. employed its follows :
The patient , stripped , should stand
In n tub of warm water. A sheet dip
ped in cool or tepid water , the temper
ature depending upon the ability of
the subject to react , Is then wrapped
around him from head to foot. Brisk
friction of body and limbs Is applied
by an attendant , and the patient him
self may rub the front of his body.
Except on the advice of a physician
such a bath should last but n few mo
ments , and then the bather should be
put to bed.
Bathing In Fevers.
When typhoid fever , pneumonia or
other serious Illness exists the ques
tion of cold bathing must be left to
he attending physlchui. In n mild
'everlsh condition much comfort will
) e afforded the patient by cool spoug-
ng. Even sponging with tepid water
will reduce the temperature and allay
lervous excitement The sponge should
lot be "sopping" wet , but only wet
enough to leave a light Olm of water
on the skin.
The nightly hot foot bath is a valu
able restorative measure , especially In
nlddlo life and old age. It promotes
healthful , restful sleep and relaxes and
refreshes the congested nnd tired
After taking a hot foot bath the
bather should go to be'd at once and
compose himself to rest before the ef-
'ects of the bath pass away. No at-
cmpt should be made to Induce n per
spiration when the bath is taken for
ts sedative and restorative effects.
The value of a hot foot bath In check-
ng n common cold is well known , but
this measure Is not employed ns frc-
nucntly ns It should be. It is an ex
tremely valuable remedy In the early
Binges of a cold , especially if the pa
tient is wrapped In heavy blankets
while taking the bath and its action
assisted by some simple hot drink ,
Biich as llaxsecd tea , lemonade , etc. ,
with a view to Inducing a profuse per
Value of Hydroth'erapy.
The other applications of water ,
massage , etc. , In disease come within
the province of the attending physi
cian , nnd his judgment must bo exer
cised In each Individual case. Wo be
lieve that such remedies are not em
ployed as frequently ns they should
be. The failure to use them results
not from lack of knowledge on the
part of physicians , but because it Is
difllcult to carry out such measures in
the ordinary household without em
ploying skilled nurses. The average
patient prefers to swallow a few pills
rather tlmn put himself to any Incon
venience. This explains the resort to
