1VIEAOBE DEMENTIA
Almost before IbvpseStefcas had time to perceive the
absurdity of the PtcTrnnn ffcr tQStrctilatlz scare comas
t flew fabricated apt fens of the H obea set flyfeg
jjy the parlor afj jwrteta whisk broom ii IB alleged
thai this broom b = c form promoter spreading con
tagious disease Its abolition IB called for
Do not the manifestations of fear which find exprei
Sibn to this end constitute a form of dementia Is not
the man who scents danger of disease in every passing
particle of dust paranoiac
To such a man the anlnute motes and beams In a ray
1
of sunlight arc terrifying He fears when he clutches a
car strap and remembers the other hands some dirtier
4 than hls own that have clutched It before him The
exhalations which rise from the streets the odors In mir
i fccp cars the unswept floor of an L station concern
blm mightily as to his chances escaping their pesti
lential Influence To pass a garbage con Is perilous To
eat a bunch of unwashed grapes or to bite into an un
wiped apple Is suicide What IB that particle of soli in
tho celery That bit of sand on the strawberry That
atom of crime on the oyster shell The entire menu
card from the coup to the raisins Is fraught with danger
to the microbe maniac
Cleanliness is a virtue properly put next to godliness
but this fear of casual dirt is In Itself a disease It Is
monomania which crows with what It feeds on BO to
y speak until it elves birth to untold terrors
There was an old theory that a man in his time would
bo called on to swallow a peck of dirt It was not a
wholly commendable theory but there was a rude if
ignorant contempt of microbe dangers about It whloh
must have been bliss
COUNTRY ESTATES
A Morristown millionaire whose country estate Is not
BUfflclcntly wooded to suit his fancy has contracted for
the removal and transplantation of 4fl5 fullgrown pint
trees from a forest some miles distant The undertaking
r Is thought to be unique In landscape gardening It will
Involve very great expense
The expense of course Is a minor consideration The
main point Is the prodigal expenditure In which Croesus
+ p DOW indulges In carrying out magnificent projects for the
Improvement of his country place
Up to within a comparatively recent time it WM al
most Golfly the city park that required the landteapo
architects talent A decade has seen an extraordinary
y development of country places for which the beet work
of an Olnntend hits beeu demanded In planning ter
races and Italian gardens and artificial waterfalls in
laying out lakes and changing the direction of Water
w courses n degree or tnlent has been called Into requisi
tion rivalling that to which the great mansions of tho
t rich owe their architectural eminence
I s Tho growth of the country estate in this vicinity has
Attained such an extent as to surprise the foreign visitor
1 H On the Bernardsvllle Hills around Morristown and Morris
Plains at Lenox In the Adirondack on the Hudson and
in Central and Northern Long Island the Immense park
like properties of millionaires challenge comparison
with those of the British nobility Mr Whitneys 90000
acres In the Adlromlacka nnd the late Abram S Hewitt
2000 acres in New Jersey Impress by their size
Woo to the settlement that stands In the way qt these
Accretions of acres With the surrounding land under
private ownership there 1s afforded the unique spectacle
IPeclloOle
for a republic of what Is practically a lordship of the
S manor
On Long Island the encroachment of private owner
ship has already in various Instances Impeded municipal
development In the Success Lake litigation of the
VanderWHs as by the Payne Whitney case Interesting
preliminary questions have been raised of the relation
ship of the largo land owner to the hamlet or village
Interest that stands In his way At Cold Spring Harbor
private ownership of the water front free access to which I
Is now shut off has inflicted a hardship on hundreds of
villagers
Is It surprising that the rich mans neighbors view
the growth of his estate with diminishing affection 1
CAMERA MANNERS

The camera dead pursued the young Duchess of Ilex
burghe across the ocean and succeeded at last In getting
a snapshot of her As she heard the ominous click tho
defenceless victim thrust her muff before her face It
was too late The exulting pursuer called out tri
i ii umphantly Thank you and the Duchess with an ox
f clamatlor of protest left the deck

Tho photographer who took the iDuchesns picture
against her will subjected her to an Insult which he but
IhtcnslflMl by his mod words of thanks Helnvadod
her privacy and treated her with a disrespect for which
r no apology could atone while exhibiting the nonchalant
disregard of decent behavior which Is so commonly de
veloped In the camera crank
4 This particular act may be leniently looked on as
exceptional in its rudeness Even BO it was an aggravated
d
vated Instance of a prevalent discourtesy among camera
Users which Is to be reprobated and deplored

When a cave man wanted to wed a

And If another man objected he fought

In tho great sport of husbandhunting
all men are air game and tt la alwaae

for the representative citizens who dont need the moey
fr
The report says that he wants to give the main screw a
salary of 20000 a year The JIayor gets only f 16090
Tho idea has medals hanging all over It
There we possibilities In it as wide as a private i
view pt tho Atlantic Ocean With your kind permission
111
and attention Ill put you hep to the finish l
In the first place the voters of New York get to
gether and elect a Mayor and a lot ot other ofllclnls to
spend the money of the city With Mr Jeromes pUn I
we have to appoint a committee of representative cam
keepers to see that the Mayor and his men dont cop ctt
any sleepers lj
t
Right off the reel you tell the Mayor and his officials
that they are crooks before they take office You say to
them Gentlemen you are all to tho mustard and wet I 1
have given you our votes but wo dont think youre aa
the levelWe are afraid that when you get your lunch 1
books Into the City Treasury something will stick to
t em Therefore gentlemen allow ua to put a squad C > f
eminently respectable plainclothes men at largo salarUa
to keep their lamps on the layout
So the committee is appointed but who is going to
keep cases on the committee There must be anot cit
committee Naturally the most eminently respectable
and representative citizens of the town will be on do
I
first committee and in choosing the second oorrrmltteo
well haTo to get down the scale a little We bard
accused the city officials of being crooks and now weirs
accused our first committee of not being any too honenl f
to declare themselves in
Of course there will have to be another connnjtteo
to keep tab on the second committee and so on until OJ
overybody In town will be holding a city job Each
committee Is getting loss respectable with every appoint
ment until finally when there is nobody left to ring Into q
the last committee TVO wake up to find that It Is con
posed of a lot of hicks J
Aint it a dream We might have variations in It I
at that Why not appoint n committee to see that the
Mayor dont steal any of the city stationery and a com
mittee to sleuth on the Comptroller and prevent him I
from using city postage stamps on his personal cor
respondence Whats the matter with a committee
promote tho honesty of tho Borough President and a
committee to keep a tollpunch record of the expendi
tures of the Sheriff
We ought to have some way of keeping watch G Per
