Sad Days for McCooey — Need
for New Hospital.
A Question that is bring asked frequent
ly in political circles these days is: "How
long will John H. MeCooej* remain the
Democratic leader?" The answer :s gener
a'.'y. "Oh. he never was a leader, anf
way." The provisional committee, which

In the last few months of the life of Sen
ator McCarren went out of office under
peculiar circumstances. It had been ap
pointed to bring harmony out of chaos in
the organization. Its object was achieved
orly through the death of McCarren. Then
the contending elements got together har
moniously. To defer the fight until the or
ganization had attained better health, the
leaders Fettled upon Mr. McCooey.
It was thought that Mr. McC.ooey was in
favor with Mr. Gaynor an-i that he could
■*t a. few nice things for the organization.
fnfnrtunately for him, Mr. Oaynor has
neglected him and bis organization, and
even th« offWholders of Kings County
vho were elected last fall, have ignored
him. Open breaches exist between him
ard several of the mopt Important lealers
and officeholders. So these are Ead days
for the "leader."
Steady urtjwth In the work of the Brook
lyn Eye and Ear Hospital was reported by
the president at the annual meeting of tho
board of directors a few days ago. Th»
naff has been increased, but the president
declared that the need for a new hospital
■was Imperative. He said' In this, regard:
The hoard of directors is now forced to
announce that the need for a new hospital
Is imperative, and it makes this announce

the Commercial High School will leave

are now awaiting them. For the most part
the boys have not even liad to look for

graduates, another for fight and another

charge of the class, had this to say of the
"The time Feems to have gone by when
it could be said that business men have no
use for the high school boy. We have al
ways sent come of our boys to firms asking
for competent help, but never before have
l.ad the pleasure of seeing the whole class
provided for some time before graduation.
We are to send out 135 boys. A significant
iact is that most of the boys go as aids to
the heads of the large concerns offering
them employment. Their positions will be
responsible and confidential, end their
changes for rapid promotion good. The
record of the school is no doubt largely re

are encouraged to believe that we are
working on the right track."
Patrolman Daniel G. Cetkovitch was
brought to trial at Police Headquarters

January 8. The sergeant said that he had
found the man at the home of three young
women, in Tompkins Place, taking a cup ot

explain he said:
"I was brought up in the neighborhood.

YOUR BOY'S LIFE WORK— WHAT SHALL IT BE?
The Real Estate Agent's Business Is Easily
Learned and May Lead On to Fortune.
By C W. Jennings.
While you have been thinking over the
problem of your boy's life work, has it
ever occurred to you that the apparently
well known real estate business might be
Just the thing?
But don't think for a moment that all
your boy would have to do after hs got
started in this line of endeavor would be
to buy and sell lots; for, though that is
an important phase of the business, nn>l
one, to make a high success, requiring
much ability, modern advancement has
raised the real estate business to such
importance as to embrace the best efforts
in a large number of distinct specialties.
So, in this truly comprehensive occupation
will be found such a variety of work that,
aft^r he is started in it. your boy can
develop his choice of several lines of work,
each of which may lead on to a good sized
competence, perhaps a fortuie.
There is no special preliminary education
that would bp of particular value to a boy
taking up real estate for his lif« wodb
any more than all the general learring he
can acquire. Even the schools ami .colleges
have not seen fit to take up real estate as
a branch of learning, all that is being dono
in a direct educational w*iy being a few
courses taught by the Young MercM
Christian Association in some of the. large
cities and a few more or less complete

A quiet home wedding on Tuesday even
ing was that of Miss Ruth Kent, daughter
of Mrs. Kdward Kent, of No. 317 Ovington
Rveuue, Bay Ridge, and Theodore F. Fe
derer. The bride was given away by her
brother, Edward Kent, and was attended by
Mrs. Graham Townsend as matron of
honor. Stuart Gray, of East Orange, was
the best man. After a short wedding trip
Mr. and Mrs. Federer will sail for the
south, to make their home in Mexico City.
The marriage of Miss Helen Morgan New
comb and John Starin Spraker took place
Thursday afternoon at the home of the
bride's mother. Mrs. Thomas Newcomb,
No. 750 St. Mark's avenue. The Rev. Frank
M. Lownlev performed the ceremony at 4
o'clock in the presence of relatives and a
few intimate friends. The bride, who was
unattended, was gowned in white satin,
with pearl embroidery, and carried orchids
and lilies-of-the-valley. The best man was
Lawrence L. Brown, of Manhattan. Th 2
bridegroom is the son of Mrs. Harriet M.
Spraker, of Manhattan. Mr. and Mrs.
Spraker will live in that borough when they
return from their wedding trip.
As the Master School of Music enjoys
the patronage of the best people in the
borough, the dance for its benefit will
naturally be one of the distinguishing
events of the post-Lenten season. The
young women on the committee are Miss
Ethel J. Adams. Miss Jean D. Adams, Misa
Adele Bull. Miss Madeline Dougherty, Miss
Muriel Goepel. Miss Alice Steele Ide, Miss
Mary Buchanan Jennings, Miss Judson,
Misa Charlotte Luch. Miss Adele Martin,
Miss Joseuhine Sutphin and Miss Gertrude
Taylor. It is to be given at the Heights
Casino on Wednesday, April 6.
CHOLERA IN EUROPE.
Abatement of Oldtime Horror of It
Due to Modern Measures.
It is a somewhat remarkable circum
stance that the public mind In this country
seems so little disturbed nowadays by the
appearance of cholera in Europe, and that
even the landing of an occasional ship
borne case at one of our ports gives rise
to no alarm. Our readers are doubtless
aware that it was not ever thus, and that
in days not so long distant the British
ratepayer hud as much reason for anxiety
as many of his Continental contemporaries.
Indeed, our forefathers would have read
with fear and anxiety even such a com
munication as we publish from the Brit
ish delegate on the Constantinople Board
of Health, giving an account of the spread
of cholera in Europe in 1909. It appears
from this report that cholera has been epi
demic in European Russia during each of
the last three years, and that the outbreak
in 1909 was of consii'tjrable dimensions.
From Russia cholera was conveyed by rail
across the German frontier into East Prus
sia, as also down the River Mcmel into
the same province. Owing to the excellent
measures in force in Germany, the disease
in no case spread after it had been detect
ed. From St. Petersburg and from certain
Baltic ports cholera was carried on board
ships to various European countries, but,
as in Germany, the measures applied at
Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and English
ports prevented any spread from the im
ported cases. In Holland, however, a
sharp outbreak of cholera occurred at Rot
terdam in the autumn, the infection hav
ing been carried there from Russia on
shipboard; scattered cases owing their ori
gin to Rotterdam were also abscrved along
some of the Dutch waterways, and just
across the Belgium frontier two groups
of cases were el ho noticed. This is practi
cally all the cholera that occurred in Eu
rope during 1&09. With the exception of
Russia, which is notoriously lagging behind
in sanitary matters, particularly in neg
lecting protection of its water supplies,
none of ihe other European nations found
much difficulty in dealing with imported
cholera. It is well to bear in mind that
the methods now employed by the most
enlightened nations are those lor which
England has striven for many years and
which she has endeavored to induce suc
cessive international congresses to accept.
For a long time the other powers rejected
these methods a.s being inadequate, and it
was contended that only a seagirt land like.
Britain could run the risk of emplojing
them. With the advance of knowledge and
accumulation of experience Continental
opinion has come round to England's way
of dealing with cholera.— The Lancet.
THE LAST YEW FOREST.
Plan to Preserve Primeval Woodland
in Bavarian Highlands.
Consul George Nicolas int. at Nurem
berg, writes that a bit of primeval yew
forest is still to be found In the Bavarian
highlands of Germany. He continues:
"This tree, whoso wood was so eagerly
Bought in the days when the crossbow was
still a dangerous Veapon of warfare, was,,
in the Middle Ages, widely distributed over
Germany, but is to-day almost extinct, ana
even most German foresters know ii only
as a very i are tree, individual specimens
of which are hero and there preserved.
There is, however, a tiny yew woodland
still in existence in the Bavarian moun
tains, near the village of Paterzell, and not
far from the royal city of Munich itself.
It covers an area of not much more than
a half mile square. Here along the peaty
shores of the dried-out lake of Zell grow
the last of the yew-trees.
"It is primeval forest land and, according
to a recent count, comprises some, sir, largo
and 1.456 small trees. The larger treea aro

hundred* of years more. The (-mailer

So a boy's only chance to learn the busi
ness is to go right at it and get a job
with a real estate firm. Of course, the
larger the firm the greater variety of op
portunities he will havo to advance, and
some of them are great enough to tak»
him to the very top of the profession.
His first job will be that of ordinary
office youth at a salary of $4 or $5 a
week, if tho candidate should be particu
larly young and inexperienced, or, if he
has gone through the high school nnd can
write and figure pretty well, he might be
put on at a minor clerkship at from $S to
$10 a week, or even might start i:i as
stenographer or typist.
Your boy, of course, will wish to get a
general knowledge of the business before
he attempts to take up any particular
line, and bo he will likely go through some
or all of tho different stages of filing
clerk, record clerk, auditor's clork, mort
gage clerk, etc.. being promoted from tim«
to time, till after three to five years he
will be potting from $18 to $2. a week. Ho
can stick to the clerical end nnd become a
chief clerk of one of tho departments at,
spy, as much as $35 weekly.
, the, mean time, however, if he desires
to get out of the purely office end. h« will
bo picking up pointers on outside work,
and perhaps be learning how to sell and
buy lots. Th»re is moro in this than ap

enough to make a successful real estate
To sell lots successfully, your boy must
know pretty much everything that enters
into a variety of things that don't appear
on the surface. He must, for instance,
have a good acquaintance with the general
values of property In the neighborhood,
the cost of various obvious Improvements
that have to be made, the price of adjoin
ing and nearby property, street Improve
ments* and assessments, what will be
charged to make connections with sewer
And gas mains, the facilities and cost of
the prospective owner getting to his place
of business, advice as to the cost and diffi
culty of getting a mortgage on the prop
erty, etc. In addition, he must have the
ability of a salesman, for. granted that
he can . furnish all these details, he still
has to convince the caller that the par
ticular piece of property under considera
tion is just the one ho wants; and then
your boy has to deal with the seller, who
may be an uncompromising individual.
A first class salesman, generally speak
ing, will earn anywhere from $3,000 to
$15,000- or more a year in commissions.
Some become so proficient that they scorn
all other lines of work and offers of salary
and stick to selling real estate until they
accumulate the stake to retire on.
The other lines open to your boy? Well,
almost every phase of this business is a
specialty. He must know all the details
about unimproved property. This may be
suburban lots which It is desired to ac
quire in big chunks for the purpose of
making improvements and selling as Im
proved property. Then he has to know
was thoug-ht to be just about the limit of
speed. Whenever No. 999 came to stop at
a depot there was always a group of peo
ple to gather around it to look at the
high wheels, mass of iron and the hero in
the cab who drove the wonderful machine.
For years this engine an<^ its train were
the wonder of the Hudson and Mohawk val
leys and the people from the countryside

in such dwellings so as to lure tenants to
them. He must bo a student of the trend

Factory sites, transportation facilities,
'tenements, stores, boulevards, parks, small
farms (Including the adaptability of the soil
for agricultural purposes), the trend of
population of various classes, the probabil
ity of t'nl3 particular locality becoming a
residence or a business section— all this has
to be within his ken; and. if the customer
should wish to build -a store or a house
or an office building or an apartment house
or a factory, he must be ready to tell him
glibly of the cost, the formalities to be
gone through, th« probable revenues and
the taxes and details about possible loans.
All this enters Into the real estate busi
ness, as well as other specialties, such as
civil engineering and laying out and grad
ing the property; various phases of finances,
such as raising money and mortgages, and
financial returns, such as rents, etc; prob
able cost of administration, including jani
tors, porters, scrubwomen, firemen, etc.;
the cost and consumption of. coal; the cost
and placing: of fire Insurance, most of the
big opera companies placing Insurance
on the property they handle; the placing
of mortgages, etc. Then there are com
panies that take a suburban wilderness and
turn it into a habitable section, lay out
the ground and erect buildings— which
requires close acquaintance with building
to the Ogdensburg division. Like old men
long in the service, it was placed at less
arduous duties. Mcst frequently it draws
a passenger train which leaves Utica at
9:15 a. m., and returns with another which
arrives in Utica at 4:15 p. m. But the old
speed horse is sometimes seen huffing ar.d
puffing patiently, as it were, at the head
of a string of laden freight cars.
It is said that an engine earns its cost in
six months of service. If this be true. No.
999 has earned its cost forty times over.
But the old engine is not composed of the
same steel and iron with which it was
fitted a score of years ago. Just as a pw I
son's flesh and bones are changed and re
built with newer fibres every so often, so
does an old engine change. In fact, the
railroad people will tell of many human
characteristics in an engine. No. 999
has gone through many changes. • It has
had new wheels, a" new boiler or two, new
brake fixtures and so on. so that only
here and there is anything left of the
original engine. Nevertheless, it is the
same old machine. The old traditions are
wrapped and woven aroun<l it. and it will
ho remembered even when it has gone en
tirely to the scrap heap.

It has remained for faraway KM
to furnish the lumber millers of the Unite*
States an object lesson In the utHiatta
of waste, and give the nation a hint re
garding the conservation of natural fores:
resource?. - ;. .
The United States Consul at Christlazla
has furnished some interesting facts re
garding the wood flour industry which
flourishes in Norway. The product 13 cot.
as might be Implied from its name, a food
product or an adulterant of the basis ot
bread. It is used extensively as an In
gredient of dynamite, linoleum, xyolite *ad
other things. It is explained that xynlite
is a kind of artificial flooring resemblic^
wood in weight, and stofte in other re
spects. It Is impervious to water and is
practically fireproof. It is said to be veil
regarded by the Germans as floor material
for war vessels, as it does not splinter
under shot and shell. Other uses an tor
floors in kitchens, halls, corridors, cafe,
restaurants and public rooms.
The * wood flour is ground in a cheap
mill, very similar to those which grind
corn and rye. In Europe pine and *pram
sawdust Is used. After passing through
the stones and the bolting chest, it »
sacked or baled for shipment. The «•
dust is not only effectually disposed of.
but the product is said to be worth from
$12 to $13 per ton for use in the industries
