"The way I came to think of It was
easy enough," said Gane yesterday.
"A horse fell down across the street
one afternoon last June, and It looked
as though he was going to die. They
sent for a policeman to shoot the poor
beast, but some of my men happened
to be using n hose out In front here
and I had them pour water over the
horse's head and back for half an hour.
Tho policeman didn't have, anything to
do, for the horse scrambled to his feet
and went on.
"The next day I got some sheet Iron
troughs, put them out In the itreet
and connected them up with hose lines
to my building. The horses liked It.
Then one night I thought of the shower
baths, for I tnlto one myself night and
"At first the horses are frightened
when the water comes down on their
backs, but now they keep coming every
day for more,"
In connection with the showers there
are palls from which tho horses can
drink and hose lines so that their
mouths can bo washed out. The Bureau
of Municipal Research, quoting Dr.
Lederle of tho Health Department and
Secretary Morton of the A. S. P. C. A.,
says these Individual drinking bucketH
are the safest things for horses Just
as individual drinking cups are essen
tials nowadays for men nnd women.
As for the common drinking trough
It Is Just ns bad as the common drinking
cup, says Dr. Lederle. The bureau'a
Writing for the Health Department
Commissioner Lederlo goes .urther nnd
suggests that "the department should
forbid the further erection of watering
troughs of any description and that In
future their placo should be supplied
by draw hydrants, preferably uso
lated In summer with the shower bath
nnd cared for by an attendant." This
means that live wooden troughs and
142 other troughs (particularly thoso
whose rovers servo chlctly for hiding
dirt and garbage and prevent effective
cleaning) should be discontinued and
in this extreme position the veteri
narians und the stable superintendents
whom we huve ronsulted agree with
Commissioner Lederle. So does William
K. Horton, secretary of the A. H. V
At present nobody has the duty of
caring for filthy or broken city water
ing troughs. Tho Water Department
does It when somebody tells about bad
conditions, but thero Is no systematic
I way of I'.eeplntr them in shape, as for
instance tne A. o. I'. C. A. I:eeps Ita
troughs In order.
LIVE TOPICS ABOUT TOWN.
A certain beggar, who evidently believes
that originality pays, may be seen almost
every afternoon walking along Thirty
fourth street tapping the pavement with
his cano and calling out " I'm not blind!
I'm not blind!" But judging from thn
contents of his cup he excites a good deal
moro curiosity than symapthy.
The Sun's story of the coming changes
in the sailors' uniforms reminds me,"
said the amateur historian, "of tho reasons
for the old uniform, which hud reasons
indoed for each integral part . 1 he Ameri
can uniform was copied with fow changes
from the English wear for sailors.
"The flat topped hats are relics of the
days when sailormen had to go skipping
to the tops with ropes. Bo that they could
use both hands in climbing tho hats were
flattened and tho ropes wero colled and
carried on top. Tho broad collars wero
worn because, of the pomatum on the
pigtails which used to be worn; tho collars
kept blouses clean. Tho black band
around the hat was a sign of mourning
for the death, of Lord Nelson and the
three stripes on tho collar were reminders
of Nelson's three greatest (victories
Cape Ht. Vincent, Trafalgar and Copen
hagen. "The wide trousers were made that
way so that sailors slushing the decks
could pull them up abovo the kneo without
having to roll them."
The way modern restaurants keep
abreast with the times is Bhown by a large
Harlem cafe, where thn latest cocktail
has been entitled "Jack Kose."
"It Is just like a clover club with a lit
tle vermouth in it," the waiter explained,
"but it'a something now. People comtj
in and they don't know just what they'
want, so they take a Jack Hose just out
of curiosity. No, they aro not bald, they
will never mako you confess and they
only levy !0 cents on you."
John Bmlth passed along the Whltn
Way in his gray limousine with a Texas
license tag at the back. The only thing
he saw to comment on was the big sign
on tho McAlpin Hotel which read:
: 1,500 nOOMH I
WITH COMMUNICATING BATHS. ;
He said he wouldn't stay at a bote I
whero the whole town would know what
went on when you took a bath.
"Half the fun of a moving picture show
is in figuring out what "the actors are
saying," said a consistent patron of the
movies, "and I hope that they never get
the pictures so perfected that they talk.
" It is a pleasant exercise for the imagina
tion to invent the dlaloguo as the action
In tho picture goes on, and everybody In
the audienon can think out a different
speech for the hero, each one according
to hit education and taste, and so every
body is suited with what is said, which
wouldn't be the case if the pictures had
a phonographic attachment.
The thoughtful mat or woman who
inquires will bo surprised to learn how
few magazines in this big city of 'New
York find their way to the wards of tho
city's hospitals. One woman, who re
cently sent a package to a nurse in a
crippled children's ward In a hospital right
in tho heart of the city was surprised as
well as touched by the nurse's almost
The babies looked at all tho pictures.
The nurses read and reread everything
especially some gay fashion journals put
in with a hope that some little girl might
find an hour's solace " playing paper
dolls." The patients in the adult wards
had their turn next, and then the young
resident doctors welcomed what was
left. Inquiry proved tliat in almost
every hospital in New York the demand
for magazines Is far beyond the supply.
