The Yankees have done a good doal
toward making the American League
race a close one again this year.
At St. Louis H. J. Handy, of the
Illinois Athletic Club, won the tea-
mile A. A. U. swim In the Missiselppi
River.
Sweep's Futurity triumph has
placed James R. Keene at the head of
the list of winning owners on the
Eastern tracks for the first time this
season.
The Princeton Athletic Committee
has secured Thomas A. Butklewles,
formerly Assistant Distriet Attorney,
to coach the line men of the Prince-
ton 'varsity eleven this fall.
At Newark, N. J., Jackloe Clarke,
the Austriln cyclist, made a big ad-
vance toward the N. C. A. champion-
ship goal by winning the quarter-mile
titular race at the Veledrome meet.
Kinse Stone received by telegraph
an offer of $16,000 for his promising
three-year-old trotter Billy Burke and
promptly wired his refusal of the
offer. Billy Burke is considered the
best three-year-old out this season.
Johnson is raking in an average of
$76 a day at his training camp,
charging twenty-five cents a head to
see him work, and last week Jack
drew down $3000 for giving an exhi-
bition with Bob Armstrong at one of
the local parks.
Martin J. Sheridan, of the Irish-
American Athletic Club, who, with
Matt McGrath, of the New York Ath-
letic Club, Is charged with receiving
$1000 for competing at the Hibernian
games at Chicago, emphatically do-
sled the charges.
The world's pacing record for
three-year-old fillies was beaten at
the State fair races, Indianapolis,
when Maggie Winder, by Ontario,

whether the birds ar;, after all, so
necessary to man's welfare as the
preteotlonlets would have us 'elleve.
But the practical beneficial results
of the work of the birds have now
* been so long observed and so con*
clusively proven that there is no
loager say room for doubt regarding
. their usefulness. Destru of

trene depletion of the numbers of
the amnller native birds. 'Moreover,
conservation of birds produces the
opposite effect.
In 1894-5 I made experiments to at-

Medford. Mass. Food and nesting

the tent caterpillars were very abun-
dant and stripped the foliage from
most of the apple trees in the town:
but mine remained in good foliage and
bore almost the only full crop of fruit
in town that year. Details of this
experiment are given in a bulletin en-
titled "Birds as "Protectors of Or-
chards," whmch is published and
distributed free by the Massachusetts
State Board of Agriculture. Similar
experiments year after year have
demonstrated clearly the dollars-and-
cents value of the birds in orchard
and woodland. But while my obser-
vations were under way the German
Baron Hans von Berlepsach was car-
rying out, unknown to me, a number
of more extensive and painstaking ex-
periments In bird conservation on his
great estate at Sesbach. He seenred

Ty modest effort, produced here. He
studied the methods of attracting and

be had breeding on his home park
of 12 acres about one thousand small
birds, two pairs of wild duoks, one
pair of moor hens and one of grebes.
Three hundred nesting boxes hung
up in his grounds are all inhabited
by birds. In his 400 acres of wood-
land there are 2,000 nesting boxes.

The boss oild" the barbe at the

he had marked the castoer who had
a few mlautes pviously oft the
shop.
"You are the oNeet maS tI the
shop and you ought to set a better
example to these ne fellows," the
boss continued. "How did fe ever
come to do what you 4M aspway"
Then the little ma at eWr stood |
up and replied: I
"Well, everybody has an idea that
they can tell a barber a whole lot
and then get hbit started to tatiag,
and then they go eway sad abtse us
because we acted as If we thought
this was a gabfest.
"That customer came nla here as
you saw and crawled down ateo my
chair. While I was tucklig the towel
around his neck he asked me how I
liked the weather. I turned around
Just then and pretended not to hear
him. The weather doesn't bother me.
'Then I began to lather him, and
as I was rubbing It In he asked me
bow was business. I wondered what
J business that was of his, but I just
said 'Fine,' and kept on rubbing.
"Then as I was soaping him for real
business. you understand, he asked
me how was my rasor, and before I
could say anything be went on to say
that he didn't want tn be hacked as
he was going to a party and wanted
to be recognized.
"Well, I thought that was getting
pretty close to the lmit, but I acted
as if I hadn't heard what he aild. I
was doing my best to give him a
clean shave when be said that he
thought it would not be a bad Idea
for me to strop the razesor on a joint of
stovepipe or the sole of my boot, so
as to give it an edge.
"I never bad anybody say a thins
like that to me even (when I was an
apprentice. What would you. have
done under such an Insult?"
"That was an insult," replied the
boss; "still you must remember that
we have to put up with all sorts. I
would have considered the source."
"WelL I didn't may anything
even then. I kept right on until I
got through, and he had as bood a
shave as ha ever had In his life."
"You had done nothing to him up
to that tame?" asked the boees.
'**Not a thin," answered chasir 1.
"Just as I w- about to head him the

I was about the worst he ever sew. I

Looking at this photograph one might well ask whether the horse saw
an invisible "Jump" and endeavored to take it, making literally a stretch
of the imagination. The rider, It lffty be noted, is Mile. Blanche Allarty. an
amateur who is well known at M. Molier's private circus in Paris. She
holds the record for the jump without obstacles. The horse in an Anglo-
Arabian from Tarhes, and is a six-year-old.--The Sketch.


A Ladder Extension leg.


BY I. G. DAYLKY.
A painter or any other mechanic Is
sometimes called upon to paint or re-
pair work which Is very unhandy to
reach. Perhaps a ladder lb to be
supported in some manner upon. a
slanting roof of a shed, or other build-
Ing. Such a case happened very re-
cently, when the following scheme
was adopted by a mechanic with suc-
cess:
A ladder, A, was supported from
the peak of the shed roof by means of
a plate, B, bent In the shape of a
hook. Two painter's hooks would do
Just as well. The plate, B, was about
eight or ten Inches wide and three

"It reminds me of Calhoun White.

Cause of Earthquakes.
Traced To Chanto Toaking Place On Other Planets.
By Maurice SA&vutlky, Member of the
Fretich Astronomical Society.
OT until we look upon the dynamic activity of the universe as one
single whole and upon our little globe's dynamism as a living
chip of the former shall we be able to give solution to the prob-
lem of geological perturbations agitating the earth and Its poor
inhabitants. I have come, while carrying on my researches, to
the conclusion that seismic disturbances as a rule are not
sequences of sick geology, casual side considered, but are pri-
marily du6 to disturbances taking place out of earth's sphere of activity.
During critical stages of planetary structural development serious
changes in the ether's free pressure upon their respective surfaces take place.
Indeed, the pressure of free ether upon a suddenly sprung up new chemico-
geological function would be met with strengthened molecular resistance, and
this, in its turn, would weaken the pressure of the etheric line of pressure be-
tween the lanet in question and earth (in other words, 'would unloosen the
pressure-as in a violin string), which would further cause a weakened hold
of gravitational pressure updn our globe's surface and thus give rise to up-
ward pressure of the interior earth-bound ether-with naturally consequent
geological disturbances. Certainly those parts of the surface would be
affected which present lesser power of resistance, and it sla here where sick
geology comes in as secondary cause.

Woman Is the Index


Ai


of True Civilization
By John K. Le Baron.
HIE degree of civilization to which a nation has attained mlay be
pretty accurately determined by the status of its women.
Among savages the woman was the beast of burden.
The women of Hindoostan used to drown their female In.
fants in the Ganges.
In some old-world countries even in this day woman is re-
garded as a helpmeet in only the most menial sense.
In America woman has reached her most exalted sphere-and It seems
strange, therefore, that in this country she has filed the most protests. In.
gersoll, whose soul was always attuned to love and sympathy for woman, de-
.elared:
"She has all the rights I have and one more, and that Is the right to be
protected. That is my doctrine."
That was the doctrine of a man who symbolized In his domestic life the
highest Ideals of our best civilization.
Yet there are men to-day by the millions who delight to class themselves
as ,woman's superior. And such men are generally of the very inferior grade.
We are evolving, but we have not yet evolved.
We are, however, a long way ahead of the days when St. Chrysostom de-
seribed woman as "a necessary evil, a natural temptation, a domestic peril."
The Puritan idea of woman is admirably expressed by the Rev. Nathaniel

I be Issued in bulletin form by tnite
d State Census Director R. Dana Dui
" and In a short time.
d Conspicuous among the facts el
Shbited are the stupendous single wir
mileege of the commercial telephone
and telegraph systems, the million
of messages annually carried ove
the wires, the almost Incrediblb
growth of the telephone system ai
compared with the telegraph, th.
large capitalization of the companlea
concerned, and the enormous sumi
expended by them; and the difficult
development of the wireless system.
The first table relates to the tele
graph systems and Is summary b)
classes. The total number of sys
teams is given as 1.813, of which twen,
ty-ilve are commercial land line and
ocean cable, six wireless and 625 rail-
road telegraph systems, the remainder
not being involved In the topics treat-
ed of.
The twenty-five commercial land
r line and ocean cable systems operat-
ed 1,567.,691 miles of single wire, em-
ployed an average of 28,034 persons,
paid $17.808.249 In salaries and Wages.
expended $41,879,613, earned $51,583.-
848, and sent 103,794,076 messages.
The 625 railroad telegraph systems
operated 860,342 miles of single wire.
employed an average of 68.197 tele-
graph operators and dispatchers, ex-
pended l37.242,479 (income not stat-
ed. as there to no direct financial
Income from their own use of the
service). sent 264,512.816 messages,
of which 5.923,483 ,were of a commer-
cial nature, the Income for which is
reported by the commercial systems.
Another'table shows that there was
a grand total of 15.072,230 miles of
single wire in the telegraph and tele-
phone service. Of this the telephone
systems controlled 12,999,369 miles,
of which there were on pole or roof
lines 5,092,223, 1it overhead cables 2,-
917,114, in subways, or conduits 4,969,-
302, and in submarine cables 20,730
miles.
Of the grand total stated the tele-
graph systems, exclusive of govern-
ment telegraph systems, used 2,072.-
851 miles, of which there were on
pole or roof lines 1,958.836 miles, in
overhead cables 41.886, In sutjways or
conduits 65,247 and In submarine
cables 7,382 miles. These figures em-
phasise the economic Importance of
the telegraph and the telephone.
A comparative summary deals with
the telephone and commercial tele-
graph systems, not Including railroad
lines and the wireless, giving the
grand total as 23.996 companies, of
which there are .3,971 telephone sys.

A CULINARY MASTERPIECL


New Wool Sale Fastener.
Consul Frederick I. Bright, of lind-
dersfield, reports that, according to
an English newspaper, a patent fas-
tener for wool bales to take the place
of twine, has been Introduced at
Melbourne, Ausralla, which, It sl
said, prevents any vegetable fiber
from the outer covering adhering to
the fleece. The fastener consists of
a double hook of bent nail wire, not
unlike the book used for fastening the
waist belt of a lady's dress. Two
proeapacked Australian bales, secur-
ed by these fasteners, were opened
In Bradford, In the presence of wool
a0,. and not a particle of vegetable
bw was found In the wool. The
packs were paper lined, with six
tateners to the bale.

I When You Go to Paris Don't Turn
d Up Your Nose at Mussels.
I You will find a small restaurant
1 Just Inside the street entrance pre-
I sided over by a waiter who has ap-
* parently been forty years of age for
the last twenty years. He bha a
- friendly, alert air, and anything in the
I world that you want he will promptly
I provide.
1 You will naturally order some sort
r of potage or something that your
fancy suggests, but whatever else you
do, be sure to call for mussels. I
can see you turning up your nose at
this. In America who eats mussels,
except at rare times perhaps some
pickled musselq? They are with us
In the same category as tripe.
But behold the genius of the
French! When the waiter brings In
an enormous silver bowl with a dome-
like silver cover, and when he re-
moves the cover-then you forget ev.
erything in the world except the de-
licious savory smell of the steam
which rises from the myriad shells
that open lovingly for you to extract
from them the dainty sea-flavored
mussel that lurks within.
Mussel, did I say? No, these are
not the ordinary mussels that Ameri-
cans know. French gastronomic
genius has transformed them Into
moules mariniere, and the difference
is like the difference between Coney
Island beer with a collar on and the
nectar of the immortal gods.
In some deftly magical way the
French chef has Imparted a delicious
suggestion to the moules. Just that
indefinable, evanescent memory of
garlic-garlic which in the hands of
the ordinary cook is an offensive and
deadly weapon. 'but which In the
hands of a cook of high degree, an
artist, in fact, Is a means for achiev-
ing some of the supreme triumphs
of his art.
After the modules you will have any-
thing you care for-dainty slices of
galantine, or sliced capon nestling
amid watercresses, and then perhaps
some peaches in a little basket where
the fruit is enfolded in leaves from
its own tree and ripened to precisely
the right turn oun ome ancient wall
in the sunshine of an old French
garden.
Then perhaps some pulled bread
and a bit of (amembert and a cafo
Mazagran In a long glass. No one
remembers now the battle that gave
Its name to this particular prepara-
tion of coffee, which shows that men
may come and empires may fall and
armies may be dashed into fragments
upon the battlefield, but the genius of
cookery remains triumphant and its
achievements are never losL--Froli
the Bookman.

I Do you know of any woman who ever received any
benefit from taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Coni.
pound?"
If any woman who is suffering with any ailment peculiar
to her sex will ask her neighbors this question, she will be
surprised at the result. There is hardly a community in
this country where women cannot be found who have been
restored to health by this famous old remedy, made
exclusively from a simple formula of roots and herbs.
During the past 30 years we have published thousands
of letters from these grateful women who have been cured
by Lydia E Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and never
in all that time have we published a testimonial without
the writer's special permission. Never have we knowingly
published a testimonial that was not truthful and genuine.
Hre is one just received a few days ago. If anyone doubts
that this is a true and honest statement of a woman's experi-
ence with Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound write
and ask her.

Lydia 3. Plnkbam's Vegetable Compound a trial. They won't
1rvet It, for It will surely cure you." -Mrs. Besle L. Raic,

Any woman who is sick and suffering is foolish surely
not to give such a medicine as this a trial. Why should it
not doher as much good as it did Mrs. Hicks.
