GLAUU ON WOOLWOUTH GLASS.
For an hour or so after noon,
when the sun hits the Woolworth
building, crowds going up Broad
way can't look dead ahead without
blinking their eyes, so strong is the
reflection of the little old earth's
A SIGHT AT DAWN.
The big town's biggest building
looks tall all right in daytime, hut
if you want to see it at its best go
down to Park row and get a glimpse
of it at dawn. It looks like the
tallest thing that ever happened,
and in the half light the tower re
sembles the old classic structures of
, Homo and Athens as they appear in
an artistic mist.
A bunch of girls who work in
Wall Street got tired of being strap
hangers in the Subway, so they
used their fluffy heads and found a
way to get seats for the ride to Har
lem. They walk down to Bowling
Green, where usually, even in the
evening rush Hour, there are enough
places for them. But now they are
angry with one another because
several of them told other friends
about the scheme', and when they
inarch down to the Battery at night
they find a big group of stenograph-
' era not in their secret circle using
this way of avoiding being jostled
about on the way home. So many
girls employed in the financial dis
trict try the trick now that there
aren't, enough seats to go around.
Pli M ALU LONGEVITY.
Women are living longer than
they did twenty-five years ago, but
the doctors aren't agreed on the
reason. Though all admit it isn't
due to the spread of the suffrage
. movement, they are widely divided
nvjfhqh' opinions about it. Statis
tics compiled in England show that
the expectation of life of a woman
of- 50 is a year greater than it was
in 1875, while that of a man is only
a few months greater. One school
of doctors, who, believe that death
is due entirely to a wearing out of
brain tissue, says the greater long
evity of women is due to the fact
that they don't use their brains as
much as men. On the other side
of the scientific fence is a group of
doctors who insist woman lives
longer now because she is more
sheltered than man, doesn't have to
face the wearing competition of
business that he has to endure and
that she spends must of her time at
home, which is more airy and
healthful than the offices where
Duluth is the queerest city in
America. Someone has described
it as twenty miles long, a mile wide
and half a mile high. That is not
a bad' description. The hills come
down almost to the shores of Lake
Superior, the great unsalted sea.
The Zenith City, made famous by
Proqtor Knott's speech, stretches on
the hUHjidu for twenty jnihjy&Itris
the greatuaf nut-dooiaRRmio
world. You can eatonJtroTOand
shoot bear, moose and deer within
the. .limits of the city. Ono fall re
cently aftor a forest fire thirty black
bears wore killed within tlio city
limits. The girls and boys enjoy
thoinsolves in winter by traveling
about on skis. They go ten or fif
teen miles into the country and
then ski back. Winter campfiro
partius are as common as bridge
parlioa are in the East.
Duluth is boastful. It has the
biggest elevators, the biggest ship
ing, the biggest boat club and the
second biggost wholosa'o house in
America. Its business is immense.
This season it hns handled 50,000,-
000 tons of ore and 100,000,000
bushels of grain. Its harbor is a
wonder. Thoro is a natural break
water that is like a darning needle,
for it is seven miles long and only
a few hundred yards wide. It is
made of the sand and salt brought
down and piled up by the waters of
the St. Louis Uiver. Within this
breakwater the shipping is done.
ItASIiltALL NOT A HIT.
Most of the population is made
up of Scandinavians and Canucks.
For a city of S5.000 it takes less in
terest in baseball than any com
munity of its size within the Repub
lic. It is hard to interest the
flaxen-haired peoplo in curves, sa
crifice hits and the art of bunting.
They are great, however, on wrest
ling. Duluth's boat club makes a
specialty of canoeing. It has 1,500
members, and, as most of the
members are heads of families nnd
membership includes the whole
tribe, the club has perhaps 5,000
active supporters. What skiing is
in winter canoeing and motorboat
racing are in summer.
A SUNTIiNCH WITHOUT MEUCY.

A cheap lot of blackmailing
crooks seems to be annoying President-elect
Wilson and Vincent Astor
with maudlin and threatening let

begin with and a big square-toed
heavy boot at the end seem to be
about the size for the leather-headed
ST. PAUL, CITY OP CAVI5S.
St. Paul, Minn., like Scranton,
Pa., is a city of caves and tunnels.
A large part of the business section
of St. Paul is built on rock lime
stone and below that white sand
stone. The sandstone is soft, and
hundreds of caves and tunnels have
been dug. Huuuing back from the
cliffs above t ic Mississippi are scores
of caves, some of them several bocks
long, in which mushrooms are
grown. Hie mushroom industry is
very large. St. Paul is one of the
largest primary mushroom markets
tlAMIJS J. HILL'S LIIJISAHY GIPT.
James J. Hill has given $250',000
as his contribution to the new St.
Paul Public Library, which is to be
erected in Itice Park, opposite the
Federal building, next year. Mr.
Hill has specified that this quarter
million lie devoted entirely to the
reference department. The, city is
to erect the main building. The
present St. Paul Library is a monu
ment to the sagacity of some far-
sighted citizens who years ago erect
ed a public library which paid for
itself in the first two years, and
ever since then has been producing
a substantial revenue for the library
fund. The site is one of the most
prominent down-town business cor
ners now, and the building has stores
on the first floor which, without
interfering with the work of the
library, have produced a large
schools pou wivns.
In seven of the school buildings
of St- Paul there are schools for
wives,. These classes are under the di
rection of a remarkable body known
as the St. Paul Institute, an or
ganization of citizens to provide in
tellectual and cultural advantages
for everybody, whether beyond the
school age or not. Most of the
pupils hurry through their "house
work in order to get to school on
time and not miss their lessons.
They receive instruction in millinery
aiid dressmaking, cooking and
various trades in which women take
part. There are classes, too, in
hygiene and physical culture. These
school buildings really aro social
centres, for in addition to tho in
struction the institute provides many
entertainments there, such as musi-
calos, festivals, dramatic readings!
