Tliere is a well settled belief on the part of most people that the conductors on the steam railroads have an intuitive knowledge of the persons who have not paid their fares, hud that, while they may occasionally pass a* mart Without taking up his ticket, so phenomenal is the inem'oty of the average conductor and so well does he remember faces that it is almost impossible jo deceive him. While this may sometimes be true, as a rule it is the passenger himself who gives the cue for the conductor's action. The man who deliberately attempts to evade the payment of ft" tare in nine cases out of ten will by his looks and action say to the conductor, "I have not paid my fare, and I don't intend toV' Some conductors With short memories and distrust of their abilities for detecting the frauds will continuously call out the word "tickets" as they pass through the oars, where many changes are taking place between stations, at the same time extending their hand toward each seat. The man who has not paid feels that this is a direct appeal made to himself and responds accordingly. But if this ruse does not succeed in making the would bo "beat" deliver up his ticket it so far changes his face and demeanor that he often shows conscious guilt, and his ticket is then peremptorily demanded. It sometimes happens, however,' that even all the tricks and artifices of 'the Conductor will fail, and a ,man will succeed daily, in evading payment of his fare, not merely for weeks,/ but for months. A remarkable case Of this kind was recently. obseryed-oii the Fitohburg railroad; For more than a year a man employed in one of the large wholesale houses in this city has been taking a train from one of the suburban stations,and acquaintances who rode on the same car were surprised to see that he never paid fare. At first it was thought that he might have a pass, which the conductor, knowing him well, did not require him to show. But it was learned that he always paid his fare when coming from Boston, when the conductor is sure to demand a fare from every person on the train. Thou came the suggestion that he had an xtnderstandiug with -the conductor of the train on which he rode when going to Boston. But it was found' that when, the conductor was changed to another train and a stranger took his place he also failed to collect' fare from the man. . -.'-' So for weeks the man was watched with much curiosity by the passengers 'who knew of his success and were curious to see how long it would continue. They saw that he invariably got on the train 'on the left hand side, so that he could not be observed by the conductor, who stood on the station platform. As soon as he entered the car he took one of the many unoccupied seats next to the window and lost no time in becoming deeply absorbed in the contents of a morning paper. When the conductor oaine through the train to collect fares from the passengers who 'got in at this station, this man, instead of ignoring; his presence, as most men similarly situated would have done, gave a rapid glance from his paper, looking the official squarely in the eye, and resumed his reading with just the suggestion of impatience at the interruption. The reproof conveyed in that glance, carrying with it a positive assurance that there was no disposition to evade anything, was so emphatic and pronounced that it left no doubt in the mind of the conductor, if he had any before, that the passenger had got on the train at another station and bad paid his fare to Boston. There was something about the man's appearance as well as his actions that assisted in the keeping up of this deception. He bore all the evidence of a substantial, honest business man of middle age, and far above evading payment 'of a 5 cent fare. But it was singular that day after day a sharp and discriminating conductor should be so easily deceived, and apparently against his iffyfu ponyiotions, for on several occasions he reached for a fare, but was checked in his advances by that reproachful look with Which ho was confronted, But the end came at last, on that train at least, pther the conductor's suspicions were so completely aroused that ho determined to satisfy himself whether he was being imposed upon, or else some one had called his attention to ;'the deceit practiced, for one morning he reached out his hand for the fare, but received only the swift and impatient glance, This did not satisfy him, for When the man returned to the perusal of his paper he was tapped on the shoulder and his fare demanded in no uncertain terms. A commutation ticket was reluctantly produced, punched without coinjnent and returned to the pocket whence it was taken. The nest morning the passengers watched curiously for the next move in the game, but the man had evidently given up the contest on that train, fop he has not been seen on it since. As he was known to have evaded paying fare o» that train daily for more than a year, it was rpwgblyeS' tiniated that the Fitphbvrg Railroad pompany was thus defrauded out of n.o$ Jess than IgO.^Boston Transcript. f&e?

Mr. M. S. Kemmerer said that the most encouraging sign to his mind was the improvement in the iron industry, a branch of business closely allied to coal mining, and the two together haying much to dp with the general "prosperity of the country.

P. Handy. SENATORS AND BASEBALL. Mr. Hill of Nojir York,*olls About the Plrgt Tlino Ho Mot Mr. Gorman. 'Senator Hill tells an interesting story about the first time he ever saw Senator Gorman. It w|as long before they both became famous, and the incident was not recalled until Senator Hill became a fellow senator with the Maryland leader, and it was found that both were very fond pf the national game of baseball, ' A "It was back in the sixties," said Senator Hill, ''when everybody was interested in baseball. There was a con- ventipri,in New York city. The cities along- the Atlantic coast attended;. .1 •was a delegate from Elinira, representing the Alerts. I remember that the president of the convention knew nothing about parliamentary law, and it was n'pt long before we wore in a tahglo : and,.with ; no prospect of being extrioat- •ed> 'Then they got a little fellow in the chair who know all about the way to handle a convention, and he soon had things running smoothly. He held them down, I tell you. I forgot who he was and never recalled until after coming to Washington, when I •was talking about the meeting with Senator Gorman, and he said he was there and presided. And he was. He represented the old Nationals of Washington. *' While there are other senators who enjoy baseball, none are such devotees as Senators HJ11 and Gorman. The .Maryland senator has not found time to indulge' his inclination this season, • as' he has been ,too busy getting a tariff bill through the senate, which/Senator Hill has been trying to defeat. Mr. Hill attends every game played here.— Washington Letter. Women und Learning;. Statistics collected by the regents of the University of New York shows that in the secondary schools there are 88,6'66 girls of academic grade.and 18,248 boys. Last year more than two-thirds of the 488 .honor certificates went to girls. In the oplleges there are 3,038 girls and 4,048 ; in the professional and technical sohoojs. Many other young women are studying law, medicine, painting and music. The United.States census of 1800 gave the number of wonv en teachers as 288,807. In their report upon these statistics the regents remark, "The remarkable development of an's higher education is due tq spread recognition that a college |s needed as t})e best preparation foy wifehood, motherhood and home life as as for a professional life." , , I qpuld apt control paused some POPV wovH to 1 be done, but I pvpajlfte uiy patrpus tunt it BhaUnotPpowagttift.

The mortality among newspapers in the United Spates 'during the past 18 months has been something almost unprecedented. -In New York state alone 278 newspapers suspended between June, 1898, and June, 1804. For the first time since I860 the total number catalogued by the newspaper directory is less than for the preceding year. This is said to be due to hard times caused by the Democratic free trade panic, but this is one of the things for which that party will wost assuredly be forgiven.

In fine, she may be-the incarnation of the light which shines, but does not warm, yet while she keeps a whole circle in good humor by her wit, as she does, it is a poor return to gird at her. • ". , Again, and speaking now of a widely different. type, I can call to mind older women, often only the survivors of a more rigid era—exact, severe. Sj tern, unbending and ruling thoir households with .a rod of iron. How little this generation understands them 1. How little merit it allows to tho implicit faith in duty, the untiring devotion towmJc, the almost fanatic hatred of waste and self indulgence and the Spartan maxims of life in which they wore brought Up and which they still observe. What has become of our eyes that we oaimot see the beauty of such-lives? ; Why'dp we no longer recognize their value? These are not the women who have feelings, but look none. They are without feelings at all, according to the, standards of our new, diversified and exacting society. I hear young girls saying,that their grandmothers or aunts, or what you please, don't understand them, and really I think that "many older people than those schoolgirls make just the same absurd complaint, I can appeal with safety to every one. Who has not known one of these same stern women almost .bring the dead to life 'by her powers of nursing, or confront single handed and maintain her family on a beggar's pittance, or save a falling household by simple economy and hard work? I shall be told that all these things ave. admitted, but that is just the point—they are not, ''If they were, the ory of "no feelings" would 1 never be raised, out of very shame, I know an old lady who has had the misfortune to live a long life and to see all her descendants grpw up unable to "understand" her. She is of the old, unsparing sort, and they, artistic, original, clever, modern people, have no place for her either in their theories or their interests, With these her notions can scarcely be oxpeqted to agree'either, yet the complaints come not from her, but from them. They are not complaints in words. They are complaints crystallized into entire disregard for the old sqhopl, whioh does not, as it cannot, wholly sympathise with them, It seems to take an outsider, like myself, to see what Ida see—that without this erect, white haired ancestress, who is apparently so separate from them all, wives and husbapds both \vonW have to teaph themselves the fortitude whioh she communicates merely • by her presence, households would he dragging on it the strong axles, so to speak; she put in almost unnoticed for each newly married couple, and the whole family, now held together in an unusual vigor, would soon fall apart and be disperse^ I believe there roujt be many sueb oases.
