MAY 5 LAST year the South Metropolitan Ufaa company of London reduced the price of gM from 60 cents a thousand feet to 58 oenta. The consumption Increased nearly six per cent, aa a result. A MONUMENT dedicated to the unrecognized dead of the Aatabula bridge disaster will be unveiled at Astabula, O., May 30. The menu- meet la eight feet square at the base and thirty-two feov high. The orator of the day will be Hon. James H. Hoyt, of Cleveland. TEN college scholarships will be awarded at the close of the school year to as many graduates of the grammar eohools of New York City. Mr. Joseph Pulitzer, proprietor of the New York World, Is the man to whom tho pupils of the public schools o( that city are indebted for this great opportunity. Other wealthy men who wish to use their means in benefiting mankind cannot do better than follow tho example of Mr. Pulitzer. THE Morrison will case now drawing to a close at Richmond has been remarkable for the length of time consumed in its trial. There have been over ninety days of actual trial. President Harrison who baa been engaged in the case will make the closing argument for the plaintiffs. Over two hundred witnesses were examined, including a number of prominent experts on Insanity. THE eale of the natural gas plant is a consummation long sought for by Ita owners. It did not take a great finan- oler to discover that its selling price was dependent on Its revenues and that an Increased rate meant a half million dollars Increase In profits to Its owners. Logansport objected to becoming a victim to ambitions of that character, and its famous and successful fight ought to'go down in history.

This inebriation! best seen on a clear afterooon when al the womankind of New York cavorU along the street and exhibits its new eet frock-and bonnet. From the ladi who rules the kitchen and who, i belnif her Thursday afternoon out wears a pale lavender hat, heavy with pink feathers, and gay with blue roses clear to Mademoiselle Vere da Vere who lives in a palace on Fifth avenue and wear* a small bonnet of sunburn straw with a bunch of mignonette on one side and a high cluster of violets on the other, there la a yearning after color that is more than marvelous The law seems to be simplicity from the waist down, richness from the waist up. And so Mademoiselle Yere de Vere wearBj a black crepon sklr that measures eight yards around the bottom and flares so that it suggests a master hand In the making, while her bodice is the Stuart plaid in velvet decorated with a lace collar and cuff and huge emerald buttons set around with rhinestones, and her bonnet gtows and glistens with color and spacglea such as a few yoara ago were only dedicated to the BtBge. I think I like it—on the other woman. It makes the streets look bright and pretty, suggests good times coming and much money at present. .VEN ARE SO GENZKOCS, What a lot of money American Women do spend!

B. no SENATOR CULLOM of Illinois, Is IP. dignant over the weakness' shown by the Administration In its conduct of foreign affairs. In an Interview on the forcible occupation of Corinto by the British forces, he said: "If a plain and emphatic protest ,had been made by the United States government, England would not have occupied Corinto. Now that she is there, I believe in using force, If necessary, to get her out. There are two things which the people of the United States want, and they are the enforcement of the Monroe doctrine and building of the Nlcaraguan canal. The administration that gets in the way of the people in these matters will be put out ol the way. There »re some things that we will not stand, long suf. for Ing as we are. I do not apprehend that England will go to luch steps aa ii prophesized, yet we do npt^kn.ow what her insolent and dictatorial policy may lead her to attempt One thing ia certain: that the must get away from Nicaragua or there will''be war be-, tween the United States and England. 1 ' she is about the best in the woman line that can be gotten. If he were an Englishman, be would tall her his troubles and expect her to help bear them. If he were a Frenchman be would count on her taking care of the money, expect her to eaonomlza and start a bank account. And, U he wore an Italian, he would have that con- teapt for her which the eons of Italy do have for women in general aa well aa for woman In particular. So the American husband Is a something much to be desired. ^' \ It would seem as If they were ap'- prfcoiated, judging from the splurge that is made when they are first gotten and yet how unimportant a man is at a wedding. He hasn't even the value of a corpse at a funeral—he Isn't the centre of attraction. The bride, her gown and veil, the way she walks, the. arrangement of her hair, and the beauty of her jewels are all discussed; then the bridesmaids are admired, the ushers are commented upon and last of all somebody says, "Did y»u happen to notice the bridegroom?" And all the women who cried at the wedding forgot him. It seems queer, don't -it? But womankind Is overwhelming everything nowadays. In some respects that Is as it should bo. I like the influence of women to be far-reaching and compelling, although I am a positive anti-suffragist. I con. slder that men were made to represent the State for woman. She has a sufficient number of responsibilities without longing for a vote, which would be another one. There are the afternoon teas, the babies (God bless them!), Jack's dinner, all of one's friends, the superintendence of the kitchen, which is beyond the power of man, and eo, with all these weights on her shoulders, why should a woman want to vote? GIVE BAB A CHANCE. I do believe In putting women on school commission board—I would like to be a commissioner myself—for women are needed to stem the over education of children. Women are needed to look after the bad air, the high flights of stairs, and tho thoughtless treatment of the little people who are the men and women Of the nexlt generation. A long time ago, when a child went to school, it arrived at S> O'clock, stayed until 12, then had two hours for luncheon and play, went back at 2 o'clock, stayed until fonr, : and the greater part of the afternoon was devoted to study. Then children knew less about geometry and more •bout the multiplication table; were shorl on chemistry and long on spelling; were good, clear writers, but knew very little about the legal position of the ancient Assyrians; could read well, but bever heard of the Cop- tics as aesthetics; were healthier and not 10 desperately knowing that they; were impudent Sometimes, nowa; days, I see'a child get into the street oar carrying eight or ten books. In color this child is pale to gbaitliaMi^ she Is thin, invariably wearsjeyeglaas es, and Is the result of the'over-edu- catlon in the public schools. I would like to be put on a school board to convince some of the commissioners that the free schools teach too much, and don't teach it well. I would throw away the geometries. I WOULD SET FIRE TO THE ALGEBRAS The books about the Assyrians should have pictures pasted on them and I would fetch ia their places good spelling books, good arithmetics and good geographies. Then I wou'rt have a teacher of writing who would make our boys and girls write so their letters could be read, and I wou'd have another teacher who would instruct them In the lost art of composing a letter. And then, too, I would have all the studying done at the school so that when those hours were over the small people could play and be happy, drink In the fresh air and grow gtrong, eat well and go to bed early, instead of staying up late to study their lessons. Then every tired mother would not have to say when, she was asked as to her weariness, "Well, I had to stay up pretty late to teach Mary her lessons for tomorrow." "Teaching Mary her lessons for to morrow" should be the work at school, but I suppose it is shirked because it Is much easier to hear Mary say her lessors than It is to beat them into her poor tired bead, aching from the bad air in tho schoolroom and the long hours of confinement. Then, too, If I wore on a school-board I should allow no scholar to come free whose people had sufficient money to pay for Ha education. The public schools were founded, I have always understood, for those people who could not afford to seed their children to pay schools, and yet wish them to be prepared to go Into the world of buUnes?; that is, to be able to figure correctly, to write clearly, and to know whether Cleveland was the capital Of Pennsylvania, or Richmond in California. I have always bean under the impression that those people who wished to fit their children for the world of letters should say for it, and that tho boy who had to leave school when he was 13 years old to take a position in an office or a shop w as properly fitted by education .n the free schools, fitted for it by his knowledge of three K's. THE PRECOCIOUS GIRL of IS, who stands high in geometry, and who, parrot-like, repeats pages of ulstory when the Board visits the school, IB unable, nine times out of ;en, to write a decent letter—when 1 say decent, I mean correct, either In spelling, writing or composition. Then too, I should have no question of religion enter the schools. A short prayer addressed to the Father of us ill, could be said in the morning; but the reading of any religious book, feat might be offensive to the parents of any child, should be done away with. If the people wish to send ;helr children to religious schools, let ihem either pay for it, or let the church of whioh they are members, arrange for the free scholars. I never expeot to be on a school board—bnt, ihank goodness! 1 have had aa opportunity to say what I think. MT LADY'S BONNET A.POKNMENT. There must be one comfort in being a, man one doesn't have to put on one's hat with a bonnet pin. It is irue the bonnet pin has grown to be a ihlng of beauty. Its head Is studded with diamonds, sometimes real and sometimes not Sometimes it is a turquoise that Is at the top of it, and the lovely colored stones are called nto service to make it a joy forever; ml that doesn't make the pain any he less when its sharp point goes into your hard bead. You have gotten the bonnet just at the right angle—you Hand quite still, and lo! and behold! he pin slips, and you have to place he bonnet afresh. The next time the pin doesn't slip, but it digs into your lead as If It were a strawberry—the lead, not the pin. Acd the next time t slides along, and you think it Is all Ight. when suddenly you find out that he pin has gone through your hair, iut not through the bonnet. Now, a man just puts his hat on, and there is question of A pin. and It is quare on the head; and even if the wind comes and goea, that hat stays, if it knew its business; whereas, the arefully pinned bonnet will go to one ide or the other, and the waved bair will blow; and one will see one's self . a window on the street, and an in- tant decision that life isn't worth living will be arrived at. Yet, the de- pleed bonnet pin has Its uses. You an open a letter with It, or pick, nuts with it; and when you go to cash a heck, you can prod it Into the woman who is in front of you when she don't lurry up. It is always an acceptable iresent, when studded with diamonds, and it ii rather, a low-minded woman who iin't quite willing to give a penny n exchange for a pretty, one, prevent- ng the sharp point cutting the furniture. ..•:.,.-_ Highest of all in Le«ening Power.—Latest U. S. Govt Report Baking Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE TDE DREADFUL GAS EXTORTIONERS. Speaking of cutting friendship, did you ever hear that you mustn't give a to pair of slippers to anybody you are lond of, for as sure as you do they walk away from you and never come back? I have been thinking of giving a pair to our gas man, but the result might not be what I wish, and I can 1 ! claim to have a friendly feeling for kim. Andthig i» the reason why New York baa the worst gas in th» world. This is firstly. Last June, when I went away, I tore up all my gae receipts. That la secondly. And thirdly cornea the dramatic situation About January the collector began to bring me a bill for the May before, insisted that I had paid it. as I had My receipts only reached back September, but I had always been told that when you paid a monthly bill, that the last bill receipted all Others before.lt. Now that company announced that unless I paid that bill $3.60, which I had already paid, they would turn the gas off. And they did This is fourthly. At the same time the company had in its possession five dollars of my money on. which they were drawing interest, and which was demanded at the time I first needed the gas. , Well I had,to pay that bill. This is fifthly. For 1 WAS IN TI1EIK POWER. and the gas company in New York is a monopoly, whioh gives poor gas and keeps poor book keepers. That five dollars on deposit is a smart trick of theirs. Now, the house In which I live pays five dollars a floor for the •as meter being put in, nobody knows where it Is, and couldn't run away with it, and the company carefully keeps this deposit drawing an Income from the various ones that come to them. It must amount to an immense sum when you realize what the deposit is in large houses, when five dollars Is asked for a single floor. Now, you oan understand why I want to give the the gas man,a pair of slippers. And the moral of it all is—keep your receipts. And the climax advice B —pay your gas bills by check, and write on the check exactly the month, day and date to which the bill is due, and the fact that this check is for that purpose. I am giving this advice be- jause I think it is good, and the tnowledge has come to me from exc jorlence, that detestable old teacher irho forces you to learn whether you want to or not. Still, his lessons are good and seldom forgotten, at least not by BAB. OLDEST SPORTSMEN'S CLUB. An Old-Time Fhll»d»lpbl» Institution and Iti Member*. Through the Schuylkill fishing company, "of the state in Schuylkill," founded in 1732 and still existing, with .ts original membership limit of twen- iy-five filled, the United States bears the honor of having the oldest sporting club in tlie -world. Prom these ancient disciples or Izaac Walton sprang 1 ;he Gloucester fox-hunting club, founded in 1T06, and the first of its kind in America, so far as any record shows a specific date. It is to be sincerely re- jretted by American sportsmen that an intire history of this club, with all icturesquely reminiscent details with which its fifty-two years of hunting must have abounded, was never writ;en- All wo arc now able to gather must be through the medium of tradition preserved from generation X3 generation by the descendants of ts members, a.nd from some pleasantly written though incomplete memoirs. The Gloucester club was organized by gentlemen living in Philadelphia and in Gloucester county, New Jersey, which is directly opposite the city v and had its origin in the exchange of social amenities between the urban and uburban residents. Gentlemen of comparative leisure and culture were,, in ihose early days of the nation's ma,k- ng, somewhat scarce, which gave, like as not, a greater zest to the relaxation of congenial spirits once met. Those that lived within the then rising city of Penn feasted their rural g-uests to the full exvent of their chefs cunning 1 and the wine cellar—neither of which was inconsiderable; the country gentleman, returning- the hospitality, furnished his city friends with a bounteous if less dainty board, and an appetite previously whetted to do it lull justice by a fox hunt on his own domains or those of sporting neighbors. These occasional and irregular hunts naturally, in a country well stocked wit!* (fame, led to the desire lor association, and materialized one night in 1760 in a meeting at the Philadelphia coffee bouse. Thus established the club innted .the Jersey and Pennsylvania counties nearest Philadelphia with unremitting' regularity *nd much sport It -was early morning hunting invariably, and their hounds most have been faster than those of today, for an old letter, •ays the sportsmen, "rarely sat down to the hunting dinner without the display of » brush; frequently two or three_were the trophies of the raoratzur chase."' How our deeds become naignf fled through tho vista of time! Maybe the master of Randor and the Genesc* bunts, Messrs. Mather and Wudsworth, who consider sis brushes in a season a record not to be despised, will, when Father Time has forbidden them the saddle (may it be many years hence!) and mellowed the memory of mastership worries, with their blank days and obstreperous fields—maybe they too will forget the unfulfilled hopes, and recall only the reward* of g-lori- ous runs. The heyday of the Gloucester club's prosperity came during 1775, when sixteen couplesof choice fleet hounds gave the best of sport, and &u est»bli!>hed hunting uniform—"clurk brown oloth coatee, with lapulled dnig-oon pockets white buttons and frock sleeves, buff waistcoat and breeches, and a black velvet cap"—satisfied the craving for form. The war ot the revolution dispersed most of the members of the club to tho more serious work of hunting 1 tho British soldiery—a task they sot about with equal determination. Out of this sporting organization no less than twenty- two associated aod formed the famous "First troop of Philadelphia City cavalry," nearly all of whom faithfully served in the memorable campaigns of '70 and '77. Thus it appears indisputable that the First City troop, now in service in Philadelphia, originated in and was chiefly composed of and officered by the fox-hunting- sportsmen of the Gloucester club, and by the members of the SchuylkiU Fishing company.—Caspar \V. Whitney, in ll'nrper'* Magazine. QUEER STATISTICS. Some Singular Facto Relating to th» H«- IUHII Family. The estimated population of the world on January 1, 1895, was 1,500,000,000. Tailing tho world over, there is an average of one death and one and one- fourth births per second. Only one- half of all who are born into tho world 1 live to the age of 17 years- Vital statistics prove that, taking the world over, there are 100 women to every 100 men. Out of every 0 sudden, deaths reported 8 of the number arc men. The microscope shows that the human body is covered with scales, each scale covering 500 pores. Only 0 persons of each 1,000 born live to be 75 years old, and only 1 out of the same number reaches the century mark. Figures by exports in vital statistics- prove that not less than 4,847,500,00 human beinffs die on our globe each century. The latest anthropological statistics j rove that in America, the daily, monthly and yearly number of births exceed e deaths in the ratio of S to 1. Huxley's tables show that the human body is made up of 13 different elements, of which fl are gases and 8 are solids. The average height of man in the United States is 5 feet IOX Inches; i» England, 5 feet 9 inches; in France, 5 feet 4 inches; in Belgium, 6 feet OJi inches. Tnutlnr Han. One of the uses of thorns is to protect the plant from animals which feed on herbage. Says La Nature: Nearly all plants that have thorns in their wild state lose them after generations of cultivation. It is as if plants brought under the protection of man gradually lay down their arms and trust them•dives entirely to his protection. Mr*. J. P.
