BAST 6IDE COOKING LE8SON8.
The society for the Improvement
of the Condition of the Poor has a
lot of expert cooks who are sent out
to tench people how to cook properly
and economically'. There are nearly
a hundred of these visiting cooks
going alnnit the East Side every day
1 hey specialize on the cooking of
cheap raw materals and turning
them into appetizing, nourishing
food. The statement is made hy
this society that a family with an
income of $500 a year wastes more
food proportionately than a family
whose income , is ten times that
There is plenty of room for. the ex
tension oi tins good wor,k among
families whose income is $1,200 or
$1,500 a year. The astonishing in
crease in kitchenette apartments and

A HOSPITAL'S BIG KEVENUB.
The advocates of tlie theory that
poverty and insufficient food drive
people to drink should take a look
at the inebrites' section of one of
largest and oldest hospitals in the
city. This department of this hos
pital is only for private patients.
The charges are very high so steep,
in fact, that only the rich can afford
to he treated there. The income
from these wealthy dispsomaniacs
has been the mainstay in the main
tenance of this great hospital for
many years, and has enabled it to
do a vast amount of charitable work.
The rooms occupied by these "dips,"
as the nurses call them, are fitted
up as luxuriously as any suites in
the finest hotels of the city. The
only signs of restrant are the iron
barred windows. Tljere is a beautiful
garden in which the patients take
VICTORIA BECOMING 6TRANGE.
In Central Park a handsome vic
toria drawn by a pair of high-stepping
horses in silver-plated harness
flashed )y. The driveway was full
of automobiles, and this was the
firSt horse-drawn vehicle that had
gone by for more than an hour.
Every one turned to look and
admire. There was a time, and not
so very long ago, when an automo
bile would have attracted as much
attention as this carriage and pair.
The horse and not the automobile is
the mark of fashionable distinction
, A SLOW SPEED EXPERT.
' A richly gowned woman became
impatient when she got into a crowd
at the lirand Central Terminal. Just
in front of her an elderly gentleman
was walking slowly. She exclaimed
to her escort that the old man ought
to have more consideration for the
rights of other persons in such a
crowded place, and should get out
of their way when they were in a
hurry. "Evidently you don't know
that old gentleman," remarked her
escort- "That man a responsible
fur more speed in the world than
any hundred men that ever lived.
That's Dr. P. II. Dudley, the great
scientific expert, whose researches
and inventions made high speed
trains posnible. He lias doubled
practically the rate of speed at which
railway trains can be run.'1
DR. DUDLEY'S HEAVY RAIL.
Dr. Dudley's first great invention
was a track indicator. That was in
18S0. The apparatus, placed in a
moving car, recorded by ever-flowing
pons on paper every irregularity,
however slight, in the track over
which it passed. It proved that a
rail of increased stiffness was necess
ary for faster running of trains.
The heaviest rail then weighed 65
pounds to the yard. Dr. Dudley
devised a new rail, weighing 15
pounds more, and of a new pattern,
It is the standard rail throughout
America to-day' and on many roads
in other parts of the world. It re
volutionized the designs of locomo
tives and cars, and its effect was
felt in every part of the business of
transportation- It put countless
millions of additional revenue into
the treasuries of the railroad com
panies by increasing their capacity
fr handling freight and passengers.
WAR HARD8HIP8 HERB.
No one would think the trouble
in the Balkans would have reflex
action in New York city. But that
it has is evidenced in a striking way
down around James, Catharine,
Henry, Monroe and other streets in
that quartier of the town. There
are several restaurant keepers down
there whose earnest prayer is for
peace. If peace is not declared soon
they will be bankrupt. They are
the gentlemen who run the Turkish
restaurants. Those places were the
favorite resorts of Bulgars, Serbs,
Greeks, Montenegrins and Turks.
The foods they purveyed were of a
heavy character that few Americans
have stomach for. Since the war
with Turkey started these places
have been almost deserted. One of
these restaurant keepers used to do
a business of $150 a week. He says
he has not taken in $15 a week since
the war began.
BACK TO THE CHURCH.
Bill Bailey of Yale has been study
ing and rearranging some govern
ment figures on the occupations of
college graduates, which show a
possible solution of the problem of
how to restore the churches to their
old-time efficiency, In the four
years between 1696 and 1700 the
graduates of our colleges of that time
went into the ministry to the extent
of 65.6 per cent. From 1896 to 1900
only 5.9 per cent took up t ie same
profession. If the university and
the church could get together on this
and restore something like the old-
time proportion maybe the church
woum come DacK just as some
other militants do now a days.

The third annual convention of
Cadillac dealers will he held in De
troit Tuesday, December 10th, and
will continue until Friday, the 13th,
with daily sessions. This gather
ing, which the Cadillac executives
regard as the most important arid
productive event of the year, will
bring to Detroit about 250 men
from all parts of America, includ-
ng Los Angeles, Vancouver, Dallas,
Minneapolis, Jacksonville, Portland,
Me., and Winnipeg. The visitors
are dealers, their managers and
salesmen. The chief object of their
meeting is educational. That is,
by means of addresses and informal
iscussions, ideas of special val e to
Cadillac dealers and owners are exchanged.
The chief thought is always ser
vice, tor the dealer from the east
wan;s to know how the man in the
west is perfecting this important
branch of his business, and the
fellow from the west is willing in
turn to listen to his commercial
brother in the east. In this man
ner some of the best ideas, methods
and plans for organization that have
helped materially to popularize
Cadillac policy and to maintain this
car in an enviable position before
the public have been revealed and
Something of the commercial im
portance of this dealers' convention
can be gathered from the fact that
it will have among its visitors a
Cadillac representative from both
the Pacific and the Atlantic coasts,
each one of whom has contracted
for 1,000 1913 Cadillacs, which
means, roughly, a turn-over in one
season of $2,000,000, each. These
figures are not the only significant
point. The fact also illustrates
rather tellingly the national distri
bution and the universal popularity
of the Cadillac.
