FREAKS OF A RIVER.
Stream So Crooked That It Double
There is :t stream in Massachusetts

forty miles long.

Danger in a City
In New York City the num

on the streets in 191a was 218,
almost double the numberkilled
in 1900. : >ese 90 were child

The Sun says that: "The
figures seem to show that after
a certain point- of density of
traffic the danger of the -street
increases far out of proportion
to the increase'in population of

bile is the chief offender, the
number- of deaths due to horse
driven vehicles has likewise
doubled. When there are ad

of skyscraper construction, fall

that the situation is one that
will in a few years have to be
dealt with by something other
than idle speculation. As build
