I The methods of committing perons to In-
' itltutlons for the Insane heretofore followed
In this State axe no lonser In force. Thejr
ceued on July 1. pursuant to an act of the late
Legislature which effected a general codlflra-
I tlon of tho lunacy laws. Hereafter no one can
be admitted to or confined In anr such lnstl-
' tutlon, publlo or private, except In the new
tray prescribed by the Legislature.
! By this act the commitment of Insane per-
eons becomes In a much higher sense than for
knerly a Judicial proceeding. Such unforta
Sate ones can now be confined In an institu
tion only by an order of a Judge of one of the
hlsher courts after they or their friends or
relatives have been notified of tho proceedings
and have had an opportunity to be heard in
Ihej behalf. The new method calls for great
er care and deliberation, and more fully pro
tects unfortunate persons In their risht not to
tbe deprived of their personal liberty without
dueprooeos of law.
This changR was led up to by discussions in
the newspapers, late in 1895, in regard to the
commitment of Insane persons. Specific cases
ff ere cited whlch.lt w as argued, afforded ground
(or the belief that the existing law did not pro
Vide sufficient safeguards against unlawful or
improper commitments. Under the old meth
od a person could bo confined In an institu
tion for the Insane on a certificate sworn to
by two physicians and "approved" by a Judge
of one of the higher courts. These certificates
contained among other thing" a statement by
the physicians setting forth the insanity of the
s person. Such certificates could bo sworn to by
5 physicians In general who had received from
1 the State certificates constituting them exam-
? lners In lunacy. The fee allowed by low to the
'3,, physicians for signing such certificates a as 3.
The old method provided that a Judge, when
asked to approve such a certificate, "ma" in
stitute inquiry and tako Droofs as to any al
leged lunacy before approving the certificate,
and It also provided that the Judge "may In
, his dlrcntlon" call a Jury to determine the
-" question of lunacy.
Criticism of the old system led to the ex.
Jrcsslon of a sentiment in faor of a strict
leal procedure. This sentiment was de
clared by the State Commission In Lunacy
to be untenable and unwarranted. The medi
cal profession, ton, thought there was no suf
ficient hsl for the sentiment. The Com
mission bclleedthat the personal liberty and
the jresiratlon of tho rlclits of person com
mitted to institutions for tho Insane could be
protected without material modification of
j the system then in existence. Hut tho Legis
lature took a ulfferent view. It not only en
acted a general codification of the lunacy laws,
hut went further, and prescribed the new pro
cedure, which must be followed. This pro
cedure, in brief. Is as follows:
t Application for the commitment of an alleged
nwne lerton may oe made to tan proper Judge
y any person with nnorn such Insane persou may
reside, or at whose house he or she may be. or by
Ms or her fAtlur, moth-r, husband, wife, brother,
ltr. or rtilM, or other noit of kin, or by the
Superintendent of the poor of the county, the Com.
tms,oners of Charities of the counties of Mew
lnrs. anU Kings, or tho overseer of the poor of the
town or city wherein such Insane person ma txi.
Th! proceedings are to be Initiated by a petition of
the applicant containing a statement or the facts
Upon which the allegation of Insanity Is based,
sinned ana erlned by him. to which must bo an
fined the certificate of lunacy executed by two
gaily qualified medical examiners.
Tho petition must bo swo'n to by tho appll-
I cant, and must contain a statement of the
tlct. uPn which tho allegation of Insanity Is
based The certificate, signed by the medical
examiners, must bo in a form prescribed by
the State Commission In Lunacy, must con
tain tho facts upon which the Judgment of the
examlnirs Is based, and must show that tho
I lrjii I, Insano. The qualifications of the
I iiumlncre are that they must bo reputable
, physicians, graduates of an incoroorated modi
(f cl college, and actual practitioners of thiee
years' standing, and they must have revolved
dl '"m.ft Judge of i court of record a certificate
JUn Fhowlug suoh qualification. The physlUans
Jfifii F"1" Jointly cxamino tho person alleged to bo
imr 3 Notice of such application mutt. In gen-
BT A J. sered personally on the alleged Insane
'Jr Person at least one day before thu anpllcatinn.

i udi;e to a horn tho application Is made l

really Insane and that some one, a relative
J a frk nd. should bo in court to look out for
TiH interests, 'ha Judge mav direct survke to
, se tnatlu upon some buch person.
IV, . no demand Is made for a hearing In ho-
II hair of the alleged Insane person, tho Judire

Great Increase la tbe Number teed ta Re
Within recent years the use of the gas store
has Increased greatly. Their sale has doubled
within the past two years, and It Is sU91 Increas
ing. Gas ranges are now made with facilities
for all cooking purposes, and they may be used
for either roasting or broiling, and for baking
and boiling at the same time. They are made
in a great many different styles and sizes.
Gas ranges cost about the same as coal ranges
of tbo same capacity. In general style most gas
ranges are upright rather than horizontal, tne
ovens being one above another, and the burners
for boiling and other heating purposes above
them. Gas ranges are used in hotels, restau
rants, private houses, and extensively In flat
houses They are used mostly In summer, but In
many flats of recent construction the gs range
has taken the place of tbo coal range entirely,
and is used lor all cooking purposes the year
round, the kitchen being heated by steam or
with a gn radiator. Gas ranges are now made
with water back.. The latest of gas ranges Is
one designed more especially for large prlvato
bouses, a combination of a gas range and a coal
range, each omplete, and Intended to use gas
In summer and coal In winter; or both parts of
tbe range may be used at the same time.
There are many other gas appliances for cook
ing and heating purposes. There In a gas broiler,
for broiling steaks and chops, which Is made
exclusittly for broiling; these are used In hotels
and restaurants and In private bouses, and by
beefsteak clubs. In a gas range the meat Is
broiled under the fire. Instead of over It, as with
a coal fire. In the gas broiler the gridiron hold
ing the steak stands on edge between two walls
of lira and the steak Is broiled on both sides at
A cooker Is substantially a smaller range,
upon which the number of different cooking
operations that can be condncted at tbe same
time Is made limited. On a cooker one can bake
and boil at the samo time, or roost and boll, or
broil and boll. ,
What Is called a hot plate Is not, as the name
might Imply, a contrivance for warming plates,
but an Iron plate with short legs made to stand
on top of an ordinary coal range, and having
two or three burners for cooking purposes. Hot
plates are u-ed In summer. There Is a portable
oven, made In various sizes, which can be placed
on top of tbe hot plate for baking or roasting.
When no longer wanted the hot plate can be re
moved from the range. There Is si irublnatlon
of coal range and gas stove in which the tfas
stove Is on hinges at the baok of the range.
When nsed It Is turned down so as to stand upon
the top of the range: It Is nsed tho name as a hot
Plato. When not In use It Is turned back.
Hot-Iron heating attachments are made for
use with the hot plate. Four Irons may be
heated on one burner. Special heaters are made
for laundry nse upon which from one to sixteen
irons may be heated at once; and there are also
special heaters for tailors' use.

There aro various kinds of tongs, fire tongs. Ice
tongs, ond so on, including crab tongs, which are
used In marksts In handling live crabs. Crab
longs aro made of two straight strips of
wood, each a foot or a little more than
that In length. and of about the width
Mtid thickness of a flat barrel hoop, with
tliu holding ends kept apart by means of
a little block of wood which Is placed between
the strips at, the handle end. The tongs aro
handled llko sugar tougs; they are simply
rlosrd together upon a crab to hold It. tbe tougs
opening again and the crab dropping out when
the pressuro is released.
Crabs aro often shipped to market packed In
boxes, whloh are opeued here, the orabs being
taken out and put into larger open boxes. A
little knot of Interested spectators Is pretty
sure to gather around a man seen handling
crabs with a pair of crab tongs.

Thins forbidden by tbe Doanl of Alder
men to Be Done In This City.
Successive Boards of Aldermen have officially
enumerated what are nuisances. There are
twenty-two sections of nulances In the revised
ordinances of New York city, and some of them
seem to be rather quaint than serious, Others
again seem reasonable and necessary, and it Is
the latter which usually come up for considera
tion in the minor courts on police complaints.
Borne of the ordinances respeotlng nuisances
are practically obsolete. Section S30 of the re
vised ordinances declare., for Instance, that
"no person shall bring Into tho city of New
York, or have In his, her, or tbelr possession. In
said city any oysters between the 1st of May
and the 1st of (September under penalty of 3
for any quantity not exceeding one hundred,
and $U for every additional hundred." Another
section of tbe revised ordinances declare that
"no person shall, at any time, swim or bathe In
the wstcrs of the East or North Illvers adjacent
to any ferry stairs "under penalty of $10. No
goat and this Is a most sweeping ordi
nance against a quadruped almost Indigenous
upon the rooky parts of upper New York "shall
be permlttod to go at large In any of
the streets, avenues, lanes, alleys, piers,
wharves, or publlo places of the city of N rr
York," under penalty of 13. No person, de
clares section V37 of tbe revised ordinances,
shall "expose in any of the streets, lanes,
avenues, or publlo Dlaccs In tbo city of New
York any table or device of any kind upon or
by whloh a gams of chance or hazard shall be
played, or play at or upon any such table or
device," under penally of 8SS. To swim or
bathe in the waters "adjacent to the ferry
stairs" Is made a misdemeanor by one ordi
nance; another makes tt a misdemeanor for any
person " to swim or bathe In any of the waters
within the Jurisdiction of tho city of New York,"
without a bathing suit, under penalty of S
Scetlou 244 of the revised ordinances of the
city cf New York declares that no "grocer, Inn
keeper, tavern keeper, or any other person, sbal 1
have in his, her, or tbelr premises, or shall let,
hire, or use for publlo amusement" any
flying horse, or horses or whirligig or rounda
bout or other similar machinery or device, by
w natever name It may be called, nnder penalty
ofSSO, Btlll another section of the revised or
dinances of tbe city makes Itapenalti for any
one to suspend or cause or procure to be placed
or suspended In or over uny street in tho city of
New York any cloth, yard, or garment " for the
rurpose of drying same" under penalty of $10.
n other words, any lawless Individual who
might desire to utilize lower llroadway or upper
Fifth avenue, tho Klterslde Drive, or Nas-au
street for the purpose nf drying family washing
should understand that there Is a penalty of f 10
for this offence and that he would find It cheaper
and more expedient to send the clothing to a
Chinese laundry or to utilize tbe backtard
rather than an Important city thoroughfare,
11 is a violation of a city ordinance for nny
person to place or post or cause or permit to be
placed or posted In any street of the city of New
York "any handbill or advertisement giving
notice of any person having, or professing to
havo. skill In treatment or curing of any Illness,
or offering tor sale anj meaiuine. under a pen.

beat a drum attracting the attention of passen
gers "to any show of beasts and birds," and no
person shall perform with, or hire, procure, or
abet any other person "to use or perform with a
hand organ" before the hour of 0 A. .M, or after
7 P.M. There are few Instances, It ought to be
added, In the historical record of New York
wherein citizens of this town abetted tho
playing of hand organs, though many cases are
known in nhleh ellUnn attempted to prevent
tho pla Ingot hnnd organn miuailingly. J'lnnl.
ly, no person using or performing a hand organ,
and having got a license for samo as provided
by ordinanee, shall "Killcll. ask, or request any
money for such performance In any na, shupe,
