Graft by Another Name,
They call some things by pleasanter
a nes in New York. For example,
their "anti-tipping" law would be
nown here as an anti-grafting law.
& civil case that should have some
nterest in this dispensary state is on
,rial in a New York city court before
Justice IHascall. Samuel Sirkin, a
nanufacturer, is suing a department
itore for the payment of $1,555 81
vith interest since last Decem ber f, r
oods delivered The department
3tore refused payment on the ground
that Sirkin had violated a section of
the penal code in paying to thu store's
buyer a commission of $75.
In other words, the luying agent
for the store received about 5 per
c:nt. from the manufacturer for
taking the manufacturer's gouds, and
that 5 per cent. was, of course, added
to the bill to the department store.
Under the Now York law the manu
facturer that "influences" the sale in
this improper manner forfeits the
value of the goods sold. It is pop;..
larly believed that a somewhat siani
lar syctem, carried to extremes, is
responsible for the final downfall of
the state dispensary. The rake ofts
were, we presume, too magnificent to
be designated as "tips."- [Columbia

A Mixed School.
In one of the schools down on

)f girls in which are to be found
'epresentatives of seventeen different
unntries. New York is noted as
he gathering place of people from
ll over the world, and it is not uE
>rising to find that in some ich >ols
Ne*w Yorkers uuay predomninate, but
hey do not reign exclusively. In the
natjority, however', thle classes have
Lt least one. child of foreign parents

E acch girl is an excellent ty po of her
coun itry. It is moat uniiusual, of
course, to find Japanese and1 Chinese
situdets in OUr' public schools, I nt
they make bright pupils. Fancy
what a ti'te the teacher of the class
musi't hoave in training minds so mueh
at variance with one another, and in

live.

"CIVILIZED'" BACKWARD.
Despite the boasted beauty of Eng
land, that country's civilizsition, so
far as the administration of its landed
heritage is concarned, has drifted back
ward since tha day of Elizabeth. At
that time, and long thereafter, the di
sirability of an extensive sub-division
of land, and of giving overy family at
least so much attachment to the soil
as grow out of the use of the village
commons, was fully recognized. It
was required that the cottage of every
peasant should have at least four acres
of land attached. Under this system
of land division a splendid yeomanry
grow up, the " backbone of the nation"
in peace and war. Its decadence, the
enclosure of the commons, and drift
of the rural population to the cities
has reduced the bankhone to punk.
No triumph of con merco or war or
diplomacy abroad can compensate for
doery in manhood, and loss of num
hors in its independent agricultural
population at home. The conscience
of the nation, represented by the party
now in power, recognizes this, and
strenuous eltorts are now being made
to get the people back to the land,
the land back to the people. Whoever
imagines that the return of the people
to their own-the rooccupying of broad
parks and game preserves by groups of
cottages, industrious farmers and spor
tivo children-will impair or degrade
the beauty of the land, has a perverted
aesthetic sonse. A happier England
will mean a more beautiful England.
ROAD SIDE FRUIT TREES.
Americans who visit Belgium with
observant ey :, and note the rows of
fruit tri's bordering the public roads,
come away impresseed with a sense ot
wasted opportunity in their own coun
try. Just think what an abundance
there would now be of fruit of all kinds
as well as of umbrageous beauty every
where, if the miles and miles of dull,
shadeloss American roads had been
planted with hardy ap; I , cherry,1lum
antd paar ros ! Tuo cost would have
boen slight, tr e amount of care re

Jn the neigh borhiod of townms anid cities
alIso, the abundance of roadside fruit
which the boys might be permitted,
under slight r'strictions, to pick up
and eat at. will, would have been a
orotect ion to piv ate treo, which few
persons no0w attempt to grow On aIo
count of tho gonoral apprehension
that the boys, not the cultivator,
would get the fruit.
