TUB BOARD OF TRADE RKriVAZ.
A goodly cumber of the representative
citizens of Springfield gathered in G. A. R.
hall Friday night to put life and vigor Into
the board of trade movement. Manufac
turers, merchants, professional men, book
keepers, clerks and worklngmen men of
all reputable and nseful classes and stand
ing In the front rank ot these several
classes were present in force, and the
spirit and action of the meeting were prom
ising and prophetic of the success of the
enterprise which the meeting was Intended
to promote. Several very good and solid
addresses were made none better, how
ever, than those made by F. M. Uagan,
esa.. and Mr. Amos Whitelr. The last
named gentleman struck a popular chord
when he enforced the fact of our need of
terminal facilities for our local railways,
and set forth the advantages and imminent
need of a belt railway, which would not
simply give our merchants and manufac
turers pre-eminent freighting advantages,
but would afford In our suburbs very ad
vantageous sites for new manufacturing
Then the appearance on the platform of
such men as the veteran Abram R. Lud
low, Mr. W. S. Thomas, Mr. Robert
Johnson, Mr. Hasan, Mr. Whltely
and other men of different and widely
diverging political and religious faiths
all Inspired by a common and fraternal
feeling and purpose to talk and work In a
movement for the building up of the mater
ial and several Interests of the city was a
most significant and encouraging feature.
The Idea of "booming" the city was re
jected and denounced by nearly all the
speakers. It was the purpose of the move
ment from the first to procure unity of ac
tion on the part of all citizens In seeming
for the business fraternity of the city. In
all Its departments, the best possible facili
ties for the carrying on of all local enter
prises and Industries to the best possible
advantage to each Individual and to the en
tire body of business men, and it was not
the purpose of any one connected with the
movement to enrich speculators by getting
up a spasmodic demand for town lots.
Steady growth In wholesome and useful
lines, and not a fever of speculation, was
the end sought In thU movement, which
had Its beginning over a year ago.
The spirit of the meeting was excellent
good natured, fraternal, aggressive. Mr.
Uagan, Oscar T. Martin, Esq., and others
struck and played on the keynote when
they urged those present to get down
to business at once and sign the
constitution, and then that a robust and
energetic committee should be named to
solicit our citizens, at their place of busi
ness, to enroll their names as members of
the proposed organization.
When a reasonable number of names
have been secured, the trustees appointed
by the original Incorporators will provide,
in the only legal way, for an election of a
board of trustees, who will, when sworn.
proceed to organize by electing a president,
secretary and treasurer, and we feel fully
Justified In saying that the members of the
present board are not candidates for elec
tion. Individuals and scores of them have,
in the last thirty years, done very much,
each In his own way, to build up the Inter
ests ot the city, but It will be readily con
ceded that If, in the early days of our
growth as a town, all these enterprising
gentlemen had been organized into a board
of trade with other citizens, in a fraternal,
co-operative spirit, much more might have
been done and some serious mistakes might
have been avoided.
Mr. Amos Whltely maae a remark that
especially struck the popular heart L e,
that he had, now, more faith in the city
than he had cherished at any previous
time. This came from a gentleman of
great personal force and of a remarkable
degree of push and enterprise, but who Is,
at the same time that this is true,
a man of great caution and delib
eration a man who weighs his
words well and is fully aware of their
probable force and effect. And the truth
of the utterance Is apparent Never at any
pievlous time have we bad so many public
enterprises on foot as are now being pros
ecuted. We are to have one of the finest
and most extensive city buildings in Ohio;
we are to have a government building of
most comely appearance and of liberal
proportions, and we are to have a public
library building which is not only to be an
artistic and architectural ornament
but a commodious home for our most use
ful popular educational feature, the public
library. At the same time, we are to have
erected this season a larger number
of fine business blocks than bare
been built in any previous year
for a long time. Then our great lac
torles and smaller ones running up In
number well on toward a hundred are all
in good condition, and many of them are
showing a degree of prosperity which they
have never before, at any time, enjoyed.
The time is therefore most favorable for
our citizens of courage, perseverance and
public spirit, to enroll themselves and to
use their persuasion on others to Induce
them to unite with them, in putting the
membership of the proposed board of trade
up to at least five hundred, and to push,
rigorously, all the useful and wholesome
Interests of the town. A large and well
composed canvassing committee has been
appointed and will go to work at once In
this line, and we bespeak for Its members
a generous reception and general, and even
A writer In the New Tork Sun declares

Esay on Liberty" and his "History of Civil

this, but shall read with Interest, the colo

prove his statement. We do not, however,
consider Ingersoll as either inspired or

Stanford's Cnlrerslty nod fcocdncatloU.
I asked as to the Stanford university ,
and Senator Stanford showed me some of
the photographs of the buildings as they
are today He has photographs sent him
every month showing the progress of tho
building, and these last photographs chow
that It Is only a little above the founda
tion. The design of this university Is in
the sbapo of three quadrangles and it
will have a half mile of covered colonnades.
The only high feature of the building is
tho. chapel tower, and tho design Is
Spanish. The building will consist of a
series of long, low hails. As I understand
it, tho university Is to cover an area of
about COO feet by 300 feet, which would
bo about an acre and a half more than
that covered by the Capitol at Washing,
ton. There aro about 6,000 acres of
ground about the college building, and. It
Is said, though I do not get the facts from
Senator Stanford, that the gift of tho
university In round numbers amounts to
$20,000,000. In this gift is Included the
83.000 acres of good California land which
is given to the university.
I asked Senator Stanford as to the co
education of the sexes, and be told me
that women would be admitted to the
university as well as men. and ho said he
thought at least 25 percent could be
added to the productive power of the
United States by the women of tho United
States entering those occupations for
which they were fitted, and that without
their undertaking any profession or busi
ness which would be unwomanly or dis
tasteful to them He said he thought the
future of tho laboring classes lay in such
education as would fit them to take ad
vantage of their surroundings, and that
tho raw materials of the world wcro great
enough to provide all the citizens of the
world with all the comforts of lifo, and
the luxuries, too, if those citizens brought
invention to their aid and applied their
'.abor in the-right direction. He referred

The Investigations of a society formed
in London to abate the smoke nuisance
afforded rather a startling idea of the
wasteful extravagance of the present sys
tern of combustion. Hero is a summary
of a Into report of the Smoke Abatement
institute: The weight of the smoke cloud
over the city is estimated at about fifty
tons of solid carbon and 350 tons of hydro
carbon and carbonic oxide gases. From
actual te&ts. the value of coal actually
wasted through the obstinacy of the
Cockneys is 2.257.500. or 42 per cent, of
the amount expended for coal in London,
that being the percentage of beat that
escapes up chimney without wanning
anybody This waste also causes a use
less expenditure of 2C8,750 for carting
coal, to say nothing of the wear and tear
of streets and of 43,000 more for carting
Altogether, about 2.500,000 is yearly
thrown away In London. Add to this
2.000.000 for Injury to property from the
smoke laden atmosphere, and there Is
shown a total of 4,500,000 which London
annually loses because of its failure to
bum coal under proper conditions. Nearly
all this waste and smoke could be pre
vented by a general adoption of improved
methods of constructing chimneys, fire
places, furnaces and heaters. Safety

A Dangerous Machine.
One of our Inventions the whlrlgig,
which sprang during the winter from the
lack of hills to coast upon and ice to
skate over consisted of a long pole hung
on the top of a short upright post, set In
the midst of a small pond of ice. To the
longer end of the pole was attached a sled
by ropes as long as the size of tho pond
admitted. Power was applied to the
short end of the pole by a boy or boys
walking in steps cut in the Ice, and push
ing. It will be seen that the most fright
ful speed could be almost Instantly at
tained The sled was like a stone in a
sling, and there was a point where it rose
in the air with a swing hko that of a swal

They never Injure the dumb animals, but

to brave their wrath. If a witch ask for
food, wood, clothing or anything else,
none dare say her nay. Nor dare any one
cat what a witch proffers: for If he do,
somo animal, alive and gnawing, will form
In his stomach. By day the witches wear
their familiar human form, but at night,
dressed In strange animal shapes, they fly
abroad to hold witch meetings in the
mountains or to wreak their eril wills.
In a dark night yon may see them flying
through the sky like so many balls of fire,
and there are comparatively few Mexicans
in the territory who have not seen this

the witches wear their own bodies, but
take the legs and eyes of a cojote or other
animal, leaving their own at home. Juan
Pereo, a mole witch, who died here In
San Mateo some mouths ago. met with a
strange misfortune in this wise: He had
gone off with the ej es of a cat, and dur
ing his absence a dog knocked over the
table and ate up Juan's own eyes; so the
unfortunate witch had to wear cat's eyes

Before they can fly, witches are obliged
to err out: "Sin Dios, sin Santa Marial"
(without God and without tho Holy Vir

good terms with a witch you may persuade
her to carry you on her back from here to
New York in a second. She blindfolds
you and enjoins strict silence. If you ut

vast wilderness, and if you cry "God save
me I" you fall from a fearful height to the
ground but are luckily nerer killed by

people In the territory who have made
journeys thus upon the backs of witches.

and that no one else can except a priest
with holy water. To catch a wtch, Juan
draws a nine foot circle on the ground,
turns his shirt Inside ont and cries:
"Veuga, brujal" (come, witch), where
upon the witch has to fall Inside, the cir
cle and Juan has her completely in his
power. This ability to catch witches,
however. Is seldom exercised, for let Juan
once catch a witch and all the other
witches in tho country join hands and
whip him to death.
And now, having briefly outlined the
nature of witches here, let me give you
somo veracious anecdotes of tbetrexplolts
religiously believed throughout this
section. Lorenza Labadle. a man of
prominence in New Mexico, onco unknow
ingly hired a witch as nurse for his baby.
Ho lived in Los Vegas. Some months
afterward there was a ball at Puerta de
Luna, a couple of hundred miles south,
and friends of the family were astonished
to seo the nurse and baby there. "Where
Is Senor Labadle and his family?" they
asked. The nurse replied that they were
at a house a few miles distant, bnt too
tired to come to the balL The friends
went there next day and found the Laba
dles had not been there. Suspecting the
nurse to be a witch, they wrote to Don
Lorenzo, who only knew that the nurse
and baby were In his bouse when he went
to bed, and there also when ho woko up.
It being plain, therefore, to tho most
casual observer that tho woman was a
witch, he promptly discharged her.
A pretty girl at San Rafael, just mar
ried, had a quarrel with one of the witches
there. That night a strange cat come
into the room. Feeling sure It was a
witch, she locked tho door and window,
and her husband camo with his six
shooter, but the cat melted into thin air
before he could shoot A little later an
owl suddenly appeared, flew against Mar
garita's cheek and cut It. and then dis
appeared as mysteriously as the cat had
done. A horrible soro formed on the
cheek, and could not be cured till Marga
rita appeased the witch with presents.
Jose Patricio Marino, one of the most
respected men in San Mateo, had a most
unfortunate experience not long ago.
There was then in town a witch named
Marcellina. a thin, withered woman of per
haps 50 years. Marino had the bad luck
to offend her, and sho retaliated by turn
ing him into a woman! He was In this
predicament for several months, as he Is
keen to swear, and recovered only by
bribing the witch to restore him to mas
culinity. Marcellina found witchcraft an
unhealthy profession, for last year two
men whom she had bewitched caught her
and beat her to death with clubs, right
hero in this pretty little village of San
Mateol Anything done to them! Well,
hardly! San Mateo (N. 1L) Cor Globe

Hungry Fire Department Bone.
Fire department horses tn the big cities
are, as a rule, ravenous feeders There
are certain hours of the day when they
are fed, and the horse soon comes to know
the feeding hours as well as the hostlers
As early as 5 SO o'clock In the morning Is
oats feeding time. If the feeder happens
to be a little slow in getting down stairs,
if be Is only two minutes late, there is the
greatest tramping of hoofs on the wooden
floors, kicking the sides of the stalls and
the wickedest champing of bridle bits ever
seen or heard In a stable. This sort of
racket Is kept up continuously, too, until
the oats are divided out for the meaL
The moment they commence feeding. If
an alarm comes In. every horse in the
house will leare his oats and take his
place under the swinging harness, and
will Impatiently dance around anxious to
get off for a run. The fire department
horse Is. I believe, tho only one that will
leare his oats voluntarily to go to work.
The best hostlers In the department al
ways take the bits out of the mouths of
the horses at feeding time This Is done
to give the animal a chance to thoroughly
masticate his food The horse that eats
with the bit In his mouth soon loses his
appetite' from indigestion, and will cot
last long In the department. Fire Chief
