their own pood, on the principle that the nervous shock is not so had
a the physical one of being run over. But the trouble is that there
is no uniformity in the notes of warning, even ansuming that they
re never sounded unnecessarily. Some anion honk, some bellow,
some blare and some whistle. Worst of all, there is the unearthly
iren shriek produced by a device utilizing the motor's exhaust.
These are all cruel and ITOimftl punishment, doubiy so to a
mn-iml ear. as there is no regulation of rone or pitch. The yawp
note may be nnywhere or everywhere in a range of a couple of oc

the sound is by chance too soft and mellifluous, its value as a danger

what is coming.
This confusion and multiplicity of sounds, and nil for our good,
become a wearing and racking hardship. Tcading doctors rate it
as a crying menace to health. So eminent an authority a the London
Lancet utters a ponoVroiia protest in these words: "There can bo no

HOW TO START A FORTUNE
THE world is full of heroes,, but some are only bluff. Orhera are
modern Neroe. Few are the real stuff.
Here comes, at laat, a fighter who only fights for peace.
He wars to make thing righter, and then enforces peace. The Jingo
t ry is no go. Thie hero ia a Man.
So here'a Banzai! to Togo, the Nelson of Japan.
HOW TO BE A KIPLING.
N any morning mailhag of
typewritten stones and
poema," writea a hustling
magazine editor, "may bo
the flrat manuscript of the
next Kipling or Whafe-hie-name
or Thingumby, and
there is nothing an editor
so pride himself upon as
discovering unknown merit,
especially that which has
escaped hi eompetltora."
Somehow, thia haa a
reminiscent sound, as if we
had heard it before. But
no matter it is optimistic
and inspiring, etpenially at the magazine impresario gw on to tell
what a simple thing it ia for the new writer to beat the work of the
veteran contributor. All you have to do ia to keep in touch with
the nowapapera. The new type of magazine in America, Mr. Editor
points out, ia merely "a form of jonrnaliam impoaed on the old atruc
turea of eaaaya, etorie and poema,'' so that newspaper work can be.
recommended aa the extenaion ladder on which the beginner may
climb to magazine work.
Oh, yea! There ia one other little detail of requirement which
we had nearly overlooked. That' talent, or geniua.
"Oiyen the talent or geniua which the above-named writer be
gan with, the aapirant who will conform to the arduoua conditions
the art demands will eurely attain a ready market and a sterling repu
tation, if not fame."
