NEW YORK. Bept. I. With ths coming of cool weather, ths managers of ths great New York hotel ara making arrangemenia for ths season of dinners and banquets. Ths capacity of ths modern housa of en tertainment Is suggested by th faot that without disturbing ths regular routine, it la possible to give a dinner In a private dining room or banquet ball to a party numbering hundreds of people. Americana, besides being the world's greatest travelers, bay In recant years mastered the art of dining, and those who cater to ths wants of the Inner man In th large cities of this country know that their patrons, while appreciative, ar also exacting. Whether It la a breakfast given by a woman's club as an accompaniment to a lecture on do mestic science, or an after-theater aupper Party, th hotel man must havs ths ma chlnery or nis sstaDiisnmsni running ( wiv equal smoothness. ... ..... . , , . . In th Way of "uppers. Mention of an after-theater supper sug gests a little party of friend who can be accommodated In one small room, and who partake of a few choice viands. But the modern host Is prepared to entertain thea ter parties which may b equal to the population of a good-sized town, and the word "supper" sometimes covers a multi tude of courses. Last year, for Instance, 1.200 men, members of the Order of Knights of Columbus, sat down to what was proba bly .the largest after-theater supper ever given In a New York hotel, or. It may be safe to say. In any hotel In the wide world. The gathering filled both the large and small ballrooms of the Hotel Aitor, the 7,000,000 caravansary In Longacre Square. The "supper" on this occasion was. In reality, an eight-course dinner, and the 1,200 were served in the space of an hour and a half. At the same time a number of other prlvat dinners were In progress In the same hotel, bo important Is this feature of the hotel business be coming thst at the New Astor, on any fairly busy day, from 800 to 1,000 pereons are served Jn the seventeen rooms reserved for private parties and banquets. It Is often mora difficult to arrange and carry through -these affairs than it 1 to take care of even a larger number of Individual guests. People who are giving dinner and supper parties very often do not know ilong In advance Just how many pereons they will entertain or Just what they want. But the hotel people have a carefully worked out system by means of which the Informa tion Is made available as soon as It Is ob tained, and when a party gathers In the room set aside for It everything Is In readi ness, even to the floral decorations which may not have been ordered until half an hour before. Other Bits of Hotel Lit. But the giving of banquet Is only one feature of the hotel life of the fall and wmter In the metropolis. A hotel like the Astor, with It 600 guest rooms and It great dining room, shelters every day thousand of people. To car for them means doing much more than providing something to eat and place In which to RAILWAY TIME CARD VXlOn gTATIOa TBMTH AHO MARCT Vnioa Pact.

From th time h guest hands hi rails to th boy In buttons who meets htm at th door until long after he ties left the hotel, the efforts mad to promote his comfort are never for a minute abated. Perhaps, from the point of view of th guest, th greatest convenience afforded by the modern hotel Is fourd In the fa cilities It offers for obtaining all aort of things quickly and on credit. As oon as a vialtor Is assigned to a room the house open an account with him nd he may charge to It his restaurant ex penses, his laundry checka. telephone call, telegrams, baggage transportation; messen gers, thester ticket, carriages, or what ever els he may desire. More than that, at any hour of the day or Bight he may call for his bill and find It waiting for him. Th vouchers for whatever he has ordered, whether a bouquet for hla buttonhole or a ten -course dinner for twelve friends, ar Immediately sent through pneumatlo tubea to th cashier desk and ar entered at once In a loose-leaf ledger. In which a page already has been Inserted bearing the name of the guest. Every night these Items are put on a bill to be presented In the morn ing If asked for. All that la left to be done when any one comes to th desk to make a settlement I to complete the bill by adding any chargea that may have been Incurred elnc th prevlou night, and thl work take but a few moment. What th Gweet Forccta The modern hotel keeper literally speed th parting guest, because arrangements are made to see that the head baggage man Is notified when the visitor I to leave, After he ha passed out of th building on hi way to train or steamer, the earn care I exerted to see that letter and tele gram and the thing which he ha for gotten mny be promptly ent after him. The average American I a forgetful per son. He leaves about 3,000 article of hi personal property In the Hotel Astor every year. To take care of these things there an elaborate card index system and a special safe In which are kept article of any lntrinslo value. Such an article 1 placed In a bag, tagged and deposited In the afe, and unless Its owner ha disappeared en tirely from the haunt of man he will sooner or later be located and hla property returned to him. The great modern hotel contains magy labor-aaving devices and many kind of machinery. But the telephones and ele vators, the Ice making appliance and the machine which purify the air, the pneu matic broom which capture dust, and germs and the hundred and one other contrivances for other useful purposes can not take the place of th hotel clerk. ' The bell boy may disappear, but the man behind the desk, with his vast fund of inform tlon and hi marvelous memory, Is still In dispensable. It Is no longer possible for the proprietor to meet his guests personally, but the clerk greets them with the old- time cordiality. He Is the connecting link between the barren and cheerless Inn of years gone by and the great establishment of the twentieth century. Where the Clerks Come la. - Now, as In the last generation, the hotel clerk' memory la one of hi chief asset. To the stranger in a strange city It is a gratification when he asks for the room he occupied on a previous visit to hear the clerk reply: "Certainly; number 609. I'll ee If It' vacant." It I the clerk who can tell which la the best part of any one of the theater from which to view th atage, He know all about the actor and the amount of their salaries. In hla many chambered brain are the figures of. the railway time table and the sailing hours of th steamships. He Is. In manj par ticulars, a better city directory than the printed volume. And. above all, he la a born diplomat, able to give confidence to the timid and peace of mind to the wan derer whose longing for home ha made him Irritable. Indication are that this Is to be a record breaking season In the New York hotels. Every year see an Increase In the de mands made upon the hotel men for ao commodatlona for dining and dancing par ties, for gathering of associations and bus tness organisation. At th same time, th number of famine who prefer a hotel to a house or a flat I constantly srawinc. while th great army of ths visitors to th city to steadily growing. New hotel ar going up by the doxen, still the accommo dation do not exoeed the demand. Th Englishman who aaid that New Yorker worked In twenty-story skyscrapers by day and alept In twenty-story hotel by night was not rar wrong. And because Americana ar the world's greatest travelers, they are also the hotel-man's beat customers. They have created a demand which has - mad American hotel the best In th world, UUAINT MODELS FOR PATENTS - i Deslsjns Faahloaed by faveatere Coa- etltate a Mnsam lav the , , . Pateat ORree. There are thousands upon thousahds of models at the patent office of 'Inventions that are of absolutely no use whatever, They represent the blasted hope and often the ruined fortune of Innumerable in- ventora who Invested their time and money In worthies Ideas. The model forwarded by these lnventora to the patent office form a sort of museum by themselves, and those who wish to look a bit beneath the aurfac can find a tory abounding In genuine pathos In pretty nearly every one of these foolish Invention. The star Invention In th wav of real aburdlty Is said to be th "windmill boat. This Is a device intended to supersede the sailboat of today. The motive power furnished by a windmill erected on the deck of the boat which I to take the place of sail. One glance at th model of thl boat Is sufficient to convince gay per son 91 ordinary Intelligence of It absurd' ity. Then there I th Invention of on Helnta. eimann "for floating horses across river. A very funny little model of a strangely shaped horse .with a still more wonderfully fashioned rider, a soldier, accompanies the patent papers. Little bladders filled with air are fastened around the horse. If the model were placed In a tub of water tha little bladders would support ths horse and rider on the surface of th water, but sad to relate ths poor soldier and horse would float with their feet up In the air and the head of both man and beast well sub merged. Mr. Helntxelmann'l Invention w never adopted by the army of thl or any other country. A -very odd exhibit la the pistol and pocket knife combined. A nail file project ing from th under side ot the knife act as trigger. The Inventor, one Mr. Peavey, blandly states In hi description ot the con trivance that "this Invention Da th great merit of being useful in two way If you do not kill the man with tha pistol shot you may then attack him with th knife. Note that It ha several blade. Also you may use U to dig stones out ot a horse's hoof." There ar counties numbers of baby car riages, go-carts and baby chairs. They are so complicated with all aorta of "Im provements" that no person of' only ordi nary human Intelligence can understand how th chain are la tended to be used.

Baltimore win have a Jubilee and "Old Home Week" In honor of the triumph of energy, pluck and resource over the devastation of fire. Like Chicago, Baltimore ha risen from th ruin of February T, 1901 atronger, better and bigger, and the people have warrant for rejoicing. How great waa th destruction wrought Is best shown by th report of Chief En gineer George W. Horton, who wa In command of th Baltlmor fir department at that time, and la atlll It head: "On Sunday, February T, 1904, Baltimore waa visited by one of the most disastrous conflagrations (In money loss) thl coun try ha ever known. The fire originated In a 1x-story brick building occupied by E. Hunt A Co. a a Wholesale dry good and notion bouse, located at German trt. Liberty etreet and Hopkins Place. "The thermoatat alarm waa received at 14:41 a. m. and waa responded to by one engine company, one hook and ladder cdm pany, one district engineer and on sal vage corps company. Where the Fire Bearaa. 'On entering the building from German treet the fire wa discovered In th base ment and appeared to be among the pack ing cases. A flame .waa seen drawing acroas th celling toward the elevator haft on th south side of th building. Very little amoke wn seen on the first floor or basement. As th men descended th stairs with two and one-half-inch line of hose and three-fourth of an Inch chemical j hose, th daylight seemed to fade away, caused by the downpour of smoke through the elevator shaft, and Instantly there was an explosion, the impact of which waa upward and outward. Th time between the receipt of the alarm and th xplosion waa about flv minute: th roof waa lifted and every window light above the tint floor was broken, and the flames shot out with a loud, whistling noise. The con cussion broke tha windows In the sur rounding buildings and heavy brands of fire were carried from tha Hurst building Into the adjoining property, and at once aeven buildings were burning fiercely. The wind at thl time wa blowing twelve mile an hoar from . the southwest; tk street at thl point are thirty-five and forty feet wide. "Brand of fire at one began to be blown several squares away, setting Are to rubbish In yard and awning, the flame ot Which Immediately entered broken win dows, mad o by the Intense heat and th explosion of a box containing powder, nearly Opposite the Hunt building. It being Sunday and a commercial district there waa no one to look after the numerous in cipient Ore. Effect of tha Wlad. "The fir followed the direotion of the wind, which remained from the southwest until U o'clock at night, when It changed to almost due west, and at noon on Mon day changed to northwest Bo great waa the wind and the vacuum caused by the beat that deluge stream were torn to fragment and could aot reach th second atoriea. "Th conflagration raged until 11:30 a. m. Monday, February 3. During that time lt had traveled over about 140 acna of ground and destroyed eighty-six blocks, containing 1,626 building and four lumber yards. Total Insurance paid, 329.221,861.- There wen engaged at the Are 460 fire men, 34 steam engine, 8 hook and ladder trucka. 1 fire boat, 1 police boat ail be longing to Baltimore. "Then -wen alio 771 firemen, 13 steam engines, hose Companies and 1 hook and ladder truck from other cities and towns. "Then were about 70,000,000 gallons of water used. "The department lost 1 steam engine, hook and Udder truck and 29,900 feet of hose. "The assessed value of th building ourned waa 91Z.90S.300. Th total loss, ex elusive of office furnishings, etc., waa over 1100,000,000. It Is difficult to conceive how such a disaster can be viewed, a little over two yean later, aa anything but a calamity. At first temporary structures were erected on thirty, sixty and ninety day permits, and th business part of th "Monumental City" resembled Nome or Bad Axe or What Cheer rather than- the commercial center It had been and was to be again to an even greater degree. Aa an example of the -self-reliance of It cltlsen If may be noted that Baltlmon expended only 123,000 of tha quarter of a million do!. Ian voted a a- relief fund by the Mary land legislature.' Thl sum was used to give temporary relief to those whose tools or mesne of livelihood had been destroyed. The remaining $227,000 was returned with thank." Expansion of the City. Not content with regaining th around lost, plans were at once made to recon struct on better lines. A a tint tep it wa epaoted that all buildings over eighty nv feet In height must be fireproof throughout and building under that height be of the leaser grade of protection known imply a fireproof. It waa possible to faoe on such fin cheerfully, but a repe tition was not Invited. Secondly; 700 lot mad vacant wen acquired by the city for Broadening street, laying out one new tnet and Increasing the docking facilities. For this last purpose an appropriation of ti 2.000.000 haa been made, which coven tn cost or dredging the harbor. The na tional cTovernment came to the aid of th stricken city with an appropriation of 11,000,000 for a new custom house, the for mer one being among the buildings de troyed. The massive wall of th court house, which had atnpped th progress, of the flames, were reconstructed, at cost of $160,000. A aewerage system to cost 310,000,000 wa contracted for. In addition to theae sums the city raised 12,009,000 for the improvement of what is called th' Annex." an outlying district of the city; 31,000,000 for the improvement of the park system, 36,000.000 for street paving, 11,000,000 lor th construction of school houses and 91,000,000 for the construction of Are en glne housea The remarkable thing is that money for these and alt other similar and incidental expense waa raised without dif ficulty at SV per oent and that th tax rat, naver high. Is today lower than be fore the fin. The exact figure ar for 1W4, in; ror lata. 3.11; for 19u6, I. It Is con fidently expected that the rate next year will not exoeed L7I. A boom town 1 BaltJ. more, and the exceptional and right kind or a boom town. This increase In trade la not ao noticeable to the casual vhltor a th wonderful change In the 140 acre burned over. Of the 1.313 lot made vacant only eighty parcel remain unimproved. Seven hundred and two new building bav been erected on the reu many of them "sky scrapera" of fifteen stories or more. When the value f those destroyed, as alnady stated, wa til. 90a, 800, today their place la taken by Structures valued at X,6OO,C00. t The chief source of all this prosperity Baltlmon harbor.

Hla Even ancient Mexico I not free from th American confidents man, and, aa waa demonstrated by the recent round-up- of a number of swindler In on ot the tower of th old cathedral, the old, old games, worked with uch success In th United State on the unsuspecting, are Just aa suc cessful In the land of th Montesumaa aa In the land of their origin. The smoothest of all the crook I th confidence man. The little game he work en the uninitiated an Interesting to that portion of th publlo that haa already been up agatnat one or more of them, aa well as to th onea who have never been bun- koed. To be bunkoed by a clever group of operator I an experience that haa fallen to many, and many a lesson baa been gained thenby. If you have never been bunkoed don't laugh too heartily at f those who have, for who know but you may be alated tor an experience similar to those who have gone before. In Mexico the ratera Is purely a local product. He Is credited with being about the moat expert lifter of valuables In the world, as many a tourist, with a record of many thousands of miles of travel in for eign land and loada of experience, will at test The ra.tero la endlted by some with being able to take oft your vet nmove your valuable and then replace the gar ment without even you being aware ef the trick. But hi game la a coarse one. In the language of .the "perfesh" when th genuine bunko man appean on the scene. This genius of grafter haa In the past been practically unknown In Mexico, and the easy pny to which many of the unsus pecting have fallen to the Ant onea ar riving' tn Mexico leads to the belief that more of the gentry will soon . leave the original Aelds In the United State and make a tour of the republic. Some of the moothest of th class could doubtless make very profitable tour In Mexico should they so choos. It seems that the simpler the game the easier it Is to take In the average human being. A game that Is too complex Is shunned by all the experts of the business and only the appanntly simple stunt are used. Th confidence men usually work in two and thnes. The beat looking and most affable man of the lot will land the prey and each of the othen will appear at the right time to get In their work, with the reeult that by th time the bunco men get through with their victim he la out a considerable amount, generally about all that he haa, for thee men do nothing by halve, and he 1 much th wiser for his experience. The first gam worked was the old one of matching coin with three In the gam. Instead of proceeding In the usual manner, the victim was lad to think that he waa in with on of th othen and that the two of them wen taking the money ef the third man away, only to return It to htm and to glv him a lesson. Finally, when the big aum waa a atake and every man had hla pile up before him, the grafter got In their work and buneoed It to the victim, In the most approved style among the profession. It worked so easy that the graften must surely have "hated to take tha money." probably acting upon the old aaytng that "th better tha place the better the deed" they chose the cathe dral tower for their scene of operations. But, alas, they rounded up on too many of th Innocent and they an In the handa of the police awaiting trial. . . The confi dence men have many other stunts than the on tried as a starter In Mexico and from time to time It la expected that th unsuspecting will spread the new of new games that are being played. The police of the northern republlo an giving th confidence men such trouble that It 1 only natural that they should drift to another climate.

Pearling at Jolo, which Ilea at the outh westerly extremity of the Philippine group, Is a mysterious Industry. A large amount of capital and thousands of live an rlskea each year In delving Into ocean depth fof the great rough shelled bivalve which oc casionally contains a pearl worth a king"! ransom. Because of the great risk In. volve and the possible fortune to be gained, the Industry has a fascination scarcely to be resisted by those who have once experienced lt. Because of the great variety ot peop'e who search for pearls, the vast area of th hunting grounds, th eenturies-old custom ot the Mo roe and the special laws covering the Industry, n statistics can b obtained which will ap proximate the profit. The business I therefore mysterious. Pearling I a gam of haiard for high takes. The pearler must risk capital and hnman life. H must bnv th aea and go prepared to fight for hla rights with sav age men, and he must pay the taxes and dlvld the profit with th hrwd traden from Ceylon and Slngapon. Sometimes, ay the Far Eastern Review, fortune smile. Three yean ago a alngie pearl waa marketed In the Celebea for 36,000 peaoe. Buch And rarely com to publlo notice. Shrewd tnden an alwaya on hand to natch them away from the Ignorant and fearful diver, and the jewel Is first ex- fposed for ale In London or Parts or a Dutch port. Th Moro have thne waya of getting the pearl ehells out of the sea. One la by actual diving, one by dredging and a third bv a three-pronged catcher let down by a rattan rope. Thla last method can be used only when the sea Is ab.olutfjy calm, be cause the least ripple will prevent th fisherman from seeing th ahell at the bot tom of the sea. When the first method I employed the diver alwaya saya hi pray er before he goe down. In the day when hells were plentiful the diver went down to a depth Of from eight to twelve fathoms, but now there are men who even go as deep aa twenty fathoms. In former times the dtven were aup posed to give the bbjget pearls to the sul tan, but when the nattvea came to learn th value ot money they secretly sold them to the traders. As a consequence, wljcn It came to the knowledge of the sultan that one of hla ubject had, auddenly become rich he concluded that a pearl mut hava been eold, else how did he obtain all these fine thing in o hort a space of time. A messenger would be sent out at once to fine the man a large um of money. Special law have now been made by the Philippine commission covering th pearling Industry. The sultan and hla fol lower have no longer any legal right to colleet One and penaltlea, but th custom haa obtained for ao long that th ignorant people atlll fear the power of the aultan, and have not yet gained aufnclent confi dence In the American government to ac. cept Its guarantee of protection.
