Book for the Children
Care must be taken In the stories
we give to growing children that evil
is always overcome. Book friends are
very real to boys and girls and in
fluence their character. There should
be effort and conflict in their stories
and daring endurance and steadfast
purpose. Stories in which the child
hero acts rightly are particularly
valuable, because what a boy or girl
has done appeals more directly to the
child's own power. He feels though
he may not express it even to himself
that what other children have done
he can do.

NO CHANCE FOR "CLIMBERS'
Social Position Is Almost Irrevocably
Fixed In Europe, and
In Europe everybody has. a definite
social position fixed by birth and edu
cation. Individuals pass from one so
clal level to another with more facil
ity than is thought Yet the vast
mass of Britons, Frenchmen, Germans
and so forth, pass their lives on the
social level where they were born.
Position Is fixed. Their compatriots
place them at a glance. This caste
makes for contentment. There is
hardly any temptation to spend for
appearance, because such spending
will not lift them into a higher order.
The social values are not easily fal
sified. Thus two merchants of the
same class will have retired with in
comes earned in business. They live
in the same suburb. One has twenty
thousand a year and keeps a motor
car. The other has only five thous
and, and for him a motor car is out
of the question. Yet their families
associate with little envy on one side
or pretentiousness on the other, and
to the man with five thousand a year
it would seem madness to try to main
tain a touring car for the sake of ap
pearing as well off as his neighbor
with four times the income.
In the United States, on the con
trary, the absence of fixed social lev
els tends to encourage lavish spend
ing. People try, by appearances and
the possession of mere things to give
themselves fictitious social values.
This social counterfeiting, though
common in every American communi
ty, reaches its highest development
among the third class of New York's
spenders. Elsewhere people seem to
feel that the thing is successful if
they can put themselves into circula
tion as twenty dollar banknotes. But
the metropolitan standard of social
counterfeiting is to pass yourself off
as a safe deposit box full of gilt edge

Bullock's oriole Is a wonderful ar

Is fastened to the smaller swaying
branches or twigs of trees, generally
safe from those who would rob or de

materials are used in its construction,

attached to the limb of the tree that
it can withstand almost anv cala that

' Old Siege Guns Discarded.
The old siege ordnance of the army,
which consisted of 6-inch guns and
7-inch howitzers, Is to be discarded
for weapons of more modern design.
Most important in the new equipment
is a 7.6-inch howitzer, which will fire
a projectile of 250 pounds.
The carriage for this howitzer is so
heavy that it will be necessary to re
move the howitzer from the carriage,
which will be drawn by eight horses.
The gun will be placed on a special
vehicle and will be transported by an
equal number of horses. The 4.7-Inch
field gun and the 6-lnch field howitzer
are now classed as field artillery m
terlal, rather than siege material, be
cause it has been found that each gun
on its own carriage can be drawn rap
Idly enough to keep up with Infantry

Two batteries have been equipped
with the new 4.7-inch long recoil field
gun, one at Fort Sill, Okla., and tho

It will not be long before New York
may have an opportunity to perform
similar rites in honor of the horse car,
for that time-honored vehicle which
has stubbornly refused to "die" these
many years is destined soon to disap

York deign to pay its respects to that
last horse car atter the fashion of the
Parisians with their late-lamented

the longevity of its horse car. That

out so presistently that it has

In public the passing ot tbe
horse car. There are too many
strangers in town who have come on
from the west to gape at the subway
and remain grinning on the sidewalk
as some jingling relic of the fifties
goes clambering along West street
A few there may be, however, who
really might feel a pang of regret at
the sight of the last horse car jour
neying through Manhattan's streets.
To them, it would mean the passing of
an institution that did, all that could
be expected of it, and did it well, too,
In the days when New York was not
so dreadfully grown up. So long as
the city did not demand the Impossi
ble, the horse car carried people to
business in the morning, and home in
the evening; and it took them to the
theaters at night in a manner that met
all tbe requirements of the day and
age. But in these pay-as-you-enter
days it doesn't even, pretend to be
able to fulfil its share of the contract,

has been a horse-car driver most of
his life. There's old George Lent who,
at the vonerable age of sixty-nine, is

But tbe veteran of them all is Mat
thew F. Murphy, or "Matt" Murphy, aa
he is called, who began to drive a
horse car on Third avenue on April
1, 1866, and Is still driving his car
today along the East river water
front In a little more than a month.
Matt will celebrate his forty-seventh
year as a driver, and although he Is
sixty-nine years old he has no notion
of quitting until they quit running
horse cars. Then, of course, he will
have to stop.
Old-Time Rush Hours.
Oh, yes, there was a rush hour as
far back as the sixties. It lasted from
six to nine in the morning, Matt says,
and the Third avenue line handled it
by pressing nearly all of their rolling
stock, numbering 150 cars, into serv
ice and sending them downtown at
intervals of one minute and forty-five
seconds. At other times ot the day
there would be fewer cars and longer
waits, and at night, after the theaters
had closed on the Bowery, there were
only twelve cars running. But then
New York kept earlier hours In those
"In those days we drivers usually
knew most of the people who lived -along
the line and traveled with us
every day, and they knew us," said
Matt "So In the morning, when the
rush was on, I'd often wait at a corner
when I saw the man, who always took
my car there, hadn't finished his
breakfast yet Sometimes a steady
passenger would open his dining-room
window and call out that he was just
finishing breakfast and ask me to
hold up a minute until he came out
Would I do it? Of course, I would.
That was the way we ran horse cars
in the old days."
Matt says it was the usual thing for
horse-car drivers to work sixteen and
seventeen hours a day in those days.
Each driver had his own car, that Is,
a car which he alone used, and also
his own team and his regular conduc
tor. He was responsible for the gen
eral condition and appearance of the
car, and usually took personal pride
in it The fare for the entire trip
on the Third avenue line was six
cents. Matt says the conductor would
collect five of it in the beginning, and
then go around and exact an extra
cent from every passenger still on
board when the car reached Sixty-
fifth street. In the beginning, the con
ductor didn't ring up fares; he just
There was no heating system not
even a stove in the old cars, accord
ing to Matt In winter, passengers
kept their feet warm by plunging them
in a matting of straw that was
thrown on the car floor. Also there
was no cushion on the long wooden
seats inside. This made it rather un
comfortable for people traveling any
distance, and Matt says that Peter
Cooper, who was one of his regular
passengers, always brought a cushion
