oincthin; approaching such a aolieme for disposing of water
belonging to the Government: "The lower the rate charged to

TTiii is a grand idea Why not turn it around and work it the
0km way on public service monopolies and corporations that pay
to the State or the city? For instance, if a street railway or
corporation lets its equipment get old and slipshod, and shows
tendency to jam more people into fewer cars, put up its taxes. If

gsjMraable and uniform figures, remind it with a meaning pressure

TJB COLOSSAL WASTE of wealth horrifies an English pub

AOROWTNO business Is at all times
profitable, to take up. Photog
raphy hi one of these. The de
mands for good photographic work to
day sre steadily Increasing. The line
of moving pictures alone requires dally
ths services of many able photogra
phers, both men and women, competent
to do good work.
The enthusiastic amateur photog
rapher can hardly make a nrhrtak In
entering this field with a view of mak
ing It hi life work. In order to do
rhat successfully hs ahouid possess
(.besides a lore for the work) artlatlc
perception, a quick, accurate eye, and
ahouid be patient and painstaking. The
latter Is erf great Importance tn working
out details and In retouching.
The best way, usually, to learn the
art of photography la to apprentice
oneself to a successful photogrsphsr.
An earnest desire to learn the work In
all of It. details will her find It re
ward. Some photographer pay learn

others do not.
It I always advlssfbls to take up
some special branch of photography
after the regular routine of the work
has been mastered. There are several

Important branches to chooee from
portrait photography, scenic photogra
phy, Interior photography and others.
To specialise in only one of these fields
of photography la often th wisest
course to pursus, for few can mooter
uccFBBfully all of them.
There Is no apodal system of pay far
photographer. The profession Is raSaar
loosely organised, and there la much
diversity In Income, hour of work, and
other conditions. Usually tho pay
rangea from fifteen to twenty-five dol
lar, per weak. Good, competent work
er can earn much mora. Th ouweene
ful photographer with a good vustusas
head will do very well to go Into busi
ness for hlmaelt Here, particularly, Silt
own effort and aMIIty will oount In
bringing th returns.
I oan personally give an Instance of
a young man wKh natural ability In this
line who started working at ta nor woek
In a studio. After twelve year of hard
work he ha developed a husinea that
