THE WATER SUPPLY PROBLEM.
Interesting Lecture Delivered by
Prof. Newell on Hydrography.
The first of the spring and summer course
of lectures to be given at the National Mu
seum was delivered yesterday afternoon
by Prof. F. W. Newell, of the United States
Geographical Survey, on the subject of
In the large audience were a number of
scientists, many of the teachers in the
public schools, and also a large numoer of
pupils of the higher grades.
The lecture was illustrated with many
views, showing the rivers and river sys
tems of the United States, their course by
groups and comparison ub to the volume
of water discharge. To become thor
oughly acquainted with the possibilities
of development of a country, Prof. Newell
said It was necessary to have a full
knowledge of Its water .distribution.
Prof. Newell also explained the effect
of rainfalls and snow on rivers and ex
hibited many views of apparatus for
measuring the volume ot'water discharged
by rivers. In connection with thle, charts
were shown giving the vTater discharge
of several large rivers for eaoh month of
a year. These showed u varianoe all the
way from' 2,000 cubic feet to 8,500 cublo
feet per second. Another interesting table
put upon the screen was one snowing the
rise and fall of the water In the Great
Lakes during the last thirty years. This
showed that the highest point was reached
in September, 1877, and the minimum In

said, is perhaps the most Important which

"When you write your next article for
that paper," said Brother Jim, "suppose
you comment on the advantages of al
ways having some small change on hand."
The occasion of Brother Jim's remark
was a little episode with regard to some
theater tickets. He had gotten himself
up with unusual exactitude one evening,
but hart come down stairs looking some
"Rosemary," said he, "have you got a
dollar and a half that you could let me
have till Saturday?"
Rosemary had, and she opened the in
side pocket of her little buckskin purse
and counted out a dollar bill and two
bright quarters from the money she was
saving for her new gown. She did not
ask hltn why he wanted it, and perhaps
that was why he explained.
"The fact is," he went on ruefully,
"I find that I got these tickets for last
night's performance, and then forgot and
invited Bertha to go with me tonight,
and the blamed things are no good."
Now, of course, Jim should have had
money on hand to meet this little emergen
cy, and he would have had if he had beena
follower of Ben Franklin or of the Ladies'
Home Companion; or he would have gone
to Bertha and told her that she would
have to stay at home. But the family to
which Rosemary and Jim belonged were
not brought up on Ben Franklin, and that
is why they were not rich, perhaps.
There havebcen some articles of advice
written to girls who work, wliich solemnly
adjure them against lending money; and
the advice is of wide application, for, If
the truth were known, almost every girl
who works is not working for herself alone.
She usually pays her board, even if she
lives at home; and if she doesn't, she
ought. Her earnings are apt to furnlsli
the family parlor, or buy some of the
family gowns, or put pretty dishes and
little delicacies on the family table; and
all this Is as It should be. If all of the
girls who have gone out of their homes to
earn their living were forced to live alone
and think only of a growing bank account
or of more fine clothes, or of getting on in
some chosen profession, it would be bad
iudeed for ,thc girls, and worse for so
ciety. No man Is of much account who
is not working for somebody beside him
self; and the rule holds true with the
other half of humanity. Money is only
valuable, after all, for the use that is
' made of it; and If women ever forget this
collectively, as now and then they do
individually, it will bo a sorry day for the
The question of saving money and of
lending money, and of giving money away,
however, is a pretty serious one for us all.
Life, to some people, is one long struggle
between endeavors to obey the command,
""Owe no man anything," and the other
command, "From him that would borrow
of thee turn not thou away." The two
things can bo reconciled, but one must
sometimes walk gingerly In fhe path of
rectitude In order to do it. It is fairly
safe rule nob to lend money on which
somebody else has a claim. The girl who
contributes to' a wreath of flowers for some
one's funeral, while her washerwoman has

if she drops a ten dollar bill, or a one
