IN OLD BERLIN

BERLIN- (By Mail)--Paul Re
vere was a great rider, and his fa
mous night exploit in the highways I
and byways of Massachusetts, al
ready inmnortalized in song. was
soimething both thrilling and praise- r
But, Paul had a great advantage;
he lived in a taxiless age---especial
ly a Berlin taxiless age. If Paul had
bhon making his ride in a post-war
Berlin taxi, the poet would have had
something more to write about. t
In fact, his refrain would have
been vastly different. For instance,
he would not have had to write,
"Listen, my children, and you shall
hear," etc. On the contrary, the
children would have known all about
it, and would still be getting the echo
for a Berlin taxicab of the present
day variety is no modest, quiet affair.
Everybody knows that it is abroad.
It is built like an open-faced gunboat
and probably if it had been used for
offensive purposes in the war could
have created more havoc than a, fleet
of U-boats. It has no rubber in its
makeup. Its tires are of steel, with
something of an apology for springs
Onet approaches the taxi driver in
awed fashion, for there aren't many
taxis in Berlin---praise be! If the
taxi driver is in a good mood ..e may
listen to reason and offer to take his
life-and yours--in his hands whilst
he ventures forth with his trusty
taxi. He turns on the juice. There
is a stream of fire, green and red and
blue. It looks like a 100 to 1 bet
that the taxi will explode--but it
doesn't. It groans and creaks, alnd'
chugs and snorts, and finally is on
in a bunch.
The taxi driver tunes her up. The
iron wheels rattle, the body creaks,
the machine skids. It makes more
i acket than a Pittsburg foundry on
a busy day. You hang onto the gun
wale and wonder what you've ever
done .to deserve this.
Tile driver turns a notch; there's
another explosion; the machine
slides, and almost kills a Noske
guard, to say nothing of some inno
cent bystanders. The passenger re
ceives absolutely no consideration.
for the driver is, of course, a care
ful driver and knows that there
won't be more than two casualties in
the machine--that is, the driver bad
ly mangled and the passenger killed
So it goes. very painfully. The
driver lets you out at your destina
tion, you take an inventory to find
that, maybe you'll last until the next
time, and then get ti,- -ad tidings---
the legal rate is three times what the
taximeter says, and there's no ar

"The Alaskan railroad, now 75 per

The railroad extends from Seward,
an ice-free port. to Fairbanks-- a dis

over 550, according to Riggs.
"When complete, the railroad will

A century ago the women who left
the parlor or the kitchen and took
iui the pioneer struggles of women's
rights, were met with ridicule or
sharp censure. Lucretia Mott, a
Quakeress, was one of the first in
this country to take an open staud
against slave-holding. She was borr
on Jan. 3, 1793; at the age of 19 slh
married William Mott of New York
Shortly after the close of the wal
of 1812, she began to speak in public
on her subject, her only hearers be
ing Quakers, who permitted womer
to speak in public. Soon, however
the won her place as a, public speaker
irrespective of religious faith. SBit
