THE REASON WHY.
Now glue your eyes upon the man
Who prances down the streets
With optimistic bow and smile
To every one he meets;
The suavity he flings abroad
Makes all the world feel glad?
And even makes the mourner lee;
Ashamed lor being sad.
He slaps a friend upon the baelq
And hones he's feeling fine;
He spreads a long continued smile
The whole way down the line;
He jollies you and laughs with you
And calls you "Jones, old chap!"
Until vou're bound to swear that he's
The "best one on the map."
Yes, he is most agreeable.
And I suppose that's wh?
When he goes home there is no smile,
No laughter in his eye;
Why his is like the faces seen
Above the coffin lids;
You see he's smiled so much all da>
That none is left to give away
To his noor wife and kids!

Y J Y HE disbanding of the Deep
V I ' Gulch Vigilant committee,
I after a short and Inglorious
career, -was due partly to
general circumstances, but more particularly
to the treachery and lack of
civic pride in the institutions of the
camp displayed by Ike Stanton, -whom
the committee had marked for its first
Even before the day when Ike
\ "broke loose" there had been a growing
feeling that the camp was too
strenuous in its mode of life and that
frequent and unprovoked gun playe
were driving awry all would-be investors.
Ike's behavior strengthened
this feeling. He had been too free in
the use of his revolver even for Deep
Gulch Camp, where the etiquette on
this subject could scarcely be called
rigid. His performance on the day in
question had culminated in forcing a
* Btald Eastern tourist, wh:> had strayed
Into the camp by some mischance, to
I dance a cancan on top of the bar,
while Ike, by numerous and wellaimed
shots, tried to cut off the rim of
the silk hat which had excited his ire.
Ordinarily the camp would have looked
on this proceeding as a simple and
harmless jest. But after the tourist
had shaken the dust of the camp
from his feet it developed that he had
visited the camp with the intention of
buying a mine. Then the wrath of the
camp bubbled over.
"Is that the way to treat a man
looking to sink good money in our
played-out mines?" inquired Amos
Peterkin earnestly of a group of indignant
citizens. "Can we expect the
moneyed men of this great American
nation to hurry toward Deep Gulch
Mining Camp when the only inducements
offered are to hav? the tops of
their silk hats shot off, and to be told
that if they don't dance quicker they
will lose the tops of their ears? Is
that the way to appeal to the bankers
of the rich and effete East?"
The sentiment of the impromptu
* meeting seemed to be that any appeal
to wealthv investors which was meant
to be effective must be put in a different
form. Ike Stanton had struck a
blow at the prosperity of the camp.
"And Ike being a citizen of the camp
will be a good man for the vigilants to
practice on," added Amos Peterkln.
"If things don't go smoothly it won't
be as* bad as If we were beginning
with a stranger. If Ike's got any
proper pride in the camp, blamed if he
ougbin't to be proud of the opportunity.
It will give the vigilants a chance
to get sort of letter perfect, as that
actor chap used to say."
But Ike Stanton evidently was lacking
in proper pride in the camp and
Its institutions. The situation didn't
eeem to appeal to him in the least.
"Want me for a blamed amateur
vigilance committee to practice on!"
be fairly roared, bristling with righteous
wrath. "Going to use one of the
oldest and most respected residents of
the camp when they had an extra tourist,
who wouldn't have been missed
and would have just filled the bill?
Well, that's too much for me. I'm going
to resign as a citizen of this camp
and throw in mv lot with them Biir
Snake River fellows."
But when a gentleman has been selected
as proper material for practice
by even an amateur vigilance committee
it behooves him to change his place
of residence as quickly as may he. Ike
Stanton, overcome by his emotions at
having been selected for practice purposes,
dallied too long, attempting to
drown his sorrows and express his indignation.
The result was that the
vigilance committee was organized and
on his trail when he was barely clear
of the camp. Ike urged his horse to
greater speed. So did the vigilants.
Then a chance shot from a rifle
brought down his horse. Ike knew the
game was up and philosophically seated
himself by the roadside to await
the arrival of the committee. He realized
that further efforts to escape
would only mean a shower of wellaimed
When the vigilants reached him the
I list of his offenses, beginning with the
time he held up a crowd in a gambling
house and endinjr with the misplaced
which had driven an investor
with money from the camp, was recited.
The unanimous sentiment of
the committee was that hanging was
the only thing which would square Ike
Stanton's account with the outraged
proprieties of Deep Gulch Camp. Ike's
arms were bound and he was led to a
uear-by tree. There a rope was prepared.
Up to this time Ike had watched
proceedings with languid contempt.
Now his scorn bubbled over.
"I don't mind the boys stringing me
up." he said in deep disdain and looki.
ing straight-at Amos Peterkin, "but I
do object to having these last sad formalities
conducted under the leadcrf,
ship of a blamed Eastern tenderfoot
Had Ike simply swcrn at Amos or
abused him in ordinary Western parlance,
that worthy would have passed
over his remarks in silent contempt.
A man about to be lynched has special
* privileges of speech. But to be called
I' a "blamed Eastern tenderfoot and turI
tie!" That was enough to jar the sen
eibilities of the best-natured leader of
N a vigilance committee. Amos drew his
"Very brave about drawing a gun on
a ruan whjse bands are tied," cneered
Ike. again repeating his remarks apropos
of tenderfoot and mud turtles.
"But if th^se ropes were off and you
stood up in front of me I'd change
your ugly face, so that even the mud
tnrtlps would be ashamed of you."
Ainos promptly signified liis willingness
to accept this challenge. Ike
was untied. But he still was unsatisfied.
"If this thing is going to be done at
all," he said earnestly, "for the reputation
of the camp I want it done
right. It's the first prize fight and the
first lynching. With me any little
breaks don't matter. But you want
the details right so that if you try it
on a stranger you won't make a laughing
stock of the camp."
Under the direction of Ik? the arrangements
demanded by strict etiquette
were made. A ring was cleared,
seconds chosen, a timekeeper selected.
The members of the vigilance
committee beamed with approval of
Ike's proper spirit as they worked.
Here was a man whom it was a pleasure
and an honor to hang, a man who
had the credit of the camp at heart
and would spare no pains to make the
I Tlioro wfis Tin thoiltrht
aiiaii" a suwcco. 0?
of trea ciiery.
But suddenly, while the members of
the committee were occupied with arrangements
for the coming fistic contest,
Ike sprang to one side and seized
a pair of revolvers which had been
laid aside by a busy vigilant. Before
the rest realized what had happened
he had th^ crowd covered. Then came
the command to "Put up hands!" One
man was just a little slow. A bullet
shattered his arm. That ended unnecessary
delays by the rest.
Holding the committee under cover
of his revolvers, Ike Stanton marched
them to a considerable distance from
their horses. Then he backed up to
the horses, picked out the fleetest one,
and a second later was fleeing over the
hills. The vigilance committee then
rushed for their mounts, but the start
gained by the treacherous Ike was too
great to be overcome.
"And there was a man," said Amos
Peterkin bitterly, after the return to
camp, "whom we'd always given the
best of treatment and were preparing
to send off in good style. And look at
the way he played on the boys.
Treacherous! Why, a rattlesnake Is
an open-hearted, Christian gentleman
I romnnred with that Ike Stanton."?

"Neglected Education" Schools. *'
An odd feature of metropolitan life
are the schools for men and women'
whose education has been neglected in
youth. There are dozens of them between
Fourteenth and Fifty-ninth
streets, on both the east and west
sides, open for both day and night tuition,
and most of them make a living
for the Principals. The rates for tuition
range from $2 to 54 a week, according
to the individual attention required
as distinct from the regular
classes. A superannuated school Principal
who conducts one of these establishments
says they are patronized by
men and women of all ages and circumstances,
who are either too proud
or for some reason are unable to attend
the public night schools. Only a small
proportion of the pupils, he says, are
from the rural districts, where school
kept open only about four months in
the year when they were boys and
girls. The majority are New York
born or were brought here when they
were children and have grown up in
city life. Either the schools were too
crowaeu ior mem ur uiej wric umcii
away in early childhood to contribute
to the support of the family. They had
110 time to study while they were get- J
ting a firm hold in life, but age and
experience made them ashamed of
their ignorance. Most of them can read
and write, but that is about all. At the |
"neglected education" schools they
have privacy. In a few months they
know as much as the scholars in the
middle grades of the public schools,
and they are very proud of it.?New
Longest raved Street.
City engineers in the various departments
have become involved during the
last two weeks in a discussion as to
whether New York City has the longest
continuously paved street of any
city in the United States. Some engineers
said that Broad street, Philadelphia,
held the record, and others that
Delaware avenue, in Buffalo,-leading
out to Tonawanda, was the longest
continuously paved street in the country.
Some people think that Broadway
is the longest street in the United
States continuously paved," 6aid Engineer
N. P. Lewis, of the Board of Estimate.
From the standpoint of length
Broadway is one of the longest streets
since the names of sections in the
Bronx have been changed. Broadway
at the present time extends from the
Battery to the city line. There is a
break in the pavement of about half
a mile. In a few years the breaks in
the pavement will be filled in, and then
there can be no discussion as to New
York's right to claim the longest continuously
paved street in this country.
New York will then have a street fifteen
miles in length through fhe boroughs
of Manhattan and the Bronx
up to the city line. Broadway became
the longest street in the country by the
change in the name of the Boulevard
to Broadway and also the change in
the name of King's Bridge Road to
Broadway."?New York Times.
When Tall People Are Horn.
Investigations made in Europe and
the United States are said to have
completely established the fact that
the time of the year at which children
are born has a marked influence on
their stature. Boys born in November
are generally the shortest, and those
who first see the light in July are the
tallest. Taking an average, male c-hil-!
dren who come into the world In the j
autumn or winter do not grow so tall j
as those born at other seasons. As for 1
girls, the tallest are those born In
August, and the shortest those whose
birthdays are in January. Spring and
winter are the seasons of short stature
for the gentler sex, and autumn is,
favorable to height. 4

Catue* of the Decline of Drnnkennesi.
In the discussion of excise matters caused
by the enactment of a higher license law
it is generally agreed that while it entails
hardship upon individuals, every legitimate
need of the community can be met and
every taste of the consumer satisfied by
fewer saloons. In proportion to population
the number is likely to decline in the future.
The barring of business success to the
drinking man is one of the weightiest
causes in the decline of drunkenness.
Mr. John Graham Brooks has pointed
out that the railroad companies are out
greatest single influence for temperance.
They employ more than a million men, for
all of whom known drunkenness means dismissal,
and to a large proportion of whom
saloon visiting is forbidden. Here are
seven per cent, of the adult males of the
country practically pledged to abstinence.
Another cause which will greatly limit
the saloon area and influence is the number
of suburban "parks" and cottage groups
being developed by private capital, wherein
the deeds of all property sold carry covenants
against "nuisances" for from ten to
In the eyes of the real estate man the

In time the influence of "restricted"
areas must be reflected in the choicer residence
sections which are not restructed.
Purely as a business matter, future municipal
managers will inquire why any saloon
should be permitted in a residence section,
where its inevitable effect is to depreciatp
property all about it. The money derived
from the license, were it twice as much,
