An amusing anecdote was recently
told by a well-known Kew Yorker
about himself. At the time of the story
he was in a small-salaried position o-a
the clerical force of the same railroad
in which he is now one of the mighty.
"On my visiting list at that time
were several charming young ladies.
One of the most fascinating lived
near a certain fashionable theater. I
owed this young lady a courtesy in re
turn for an invitation to a very pleas
urable dance, so I asked her to go with
me to the theater I mentioned. The in
vitation was accepted, and I bought
"That done I found two dollars and
some small change in my pockets. I
was very absent-minded in those days,
so when, during the afternoon, one of
the boys asked me for a loan of a
two, I did the natural thing dove
down in my pocket and gave it to him
without a thought of how I was to
get along that evening.
"Later on I remembered my engage
ment, and in turn tried to borrow some
money, but could not find any. There
was an epidemic of hard times among
my friends. Luckily, I knew of a flor
ist who could be stood off. so I ordered
him to deliver a nice bunch of violets.
That done I had only the supper to
worry about but with only 50 cents
to buy it.
"After the play we were opposite a
well-known oyster place, when the idea
came to me to propose an oyster stew.
X knew she wasn't a drinking girl, and,
as the stews at that place were 20 cents
each, there would be ten cents for the
"The stews were brought in while I
was giving her one of my best stories.
She was absorbingly interested, and
was seasoning the stew when the cli
max of the story was reached. As I
stopped I saw a dismayed little face
opposite. Several fearful thoughts
flashed through my brain among
them illness and a cab with a not-to-be-appeased
cabby. But the truth: She
had put sugar instead of salt into her

CHURCH AND CLERGY.
Mgr. James McMahon. the Sulpician
priest who gave $500,000 to the Cath
olic University of America in Wash
ington a few years ago, has now
given that institution 11 lots of land
in Washington valued at $100,000.
A recent traveler in South Africa
tells of Benedictine nuns who have
undertaken not only to build their
house, but even to manufacture the
bricks. These devoted women have
already made over 100.COO bricks with
their own bands.
The steady progress of the good
roads movement among the farmers
shows the study that is being given
this very important economic question.
Speaking of the necessity for highway
improvement, A. B. Choate. vice pres
ident of the League of American Wheel
"Every person who is at a'l familiar
with the business of a modern railway
company knows that but a fraction of
its money and employes are engage:!
in- actual hau'icg of freight and passen
gers from one city to another. We
know that millions of collars and
thousands of men are employed by tbe
railway companies to secure suitable
terminals and to handle freig-ht and
passengers when not :n actual transit.
And yet no man can be found who is
so foolish as to thick an immense rail
way business can be profitably con
ducted unless the best modern rail
road bed and track are provitkd for
that part of the business which con
sists of hauling goods and passengers.
"So it is with the vast agricultural
business of the United States. Al
though most of the work is done on. the
farm, a large part of it consists in haul
ing freight, and every well-informed
person knows that a good wagon road
for the agricultural business, like a
railroad for railway business, is one of
tbe most important facilities fordoing
this business. It is too late in the prog
ress of events to argue this proposition.
"Xow, the country wagon road which
will best serve the agricultural inter
sts will also best meet the necessities
of the wheelman. It is perfectly plain,
then, that the interests of the farmer
and of the wheelman are in this respect
identical. Xot only that, but it must
not be forgotten that the wheelrcaa
now comprises all classes of business
and professional men who realize that
the prosperity of the country depends
upon the prosperity of the farmers,
and for that reason the interests of the
farmer and the wheelman are common.
"It is for these reasons that the L.
A. W. always has. and now does, ad
vocate good country roads."

Following is an extract from a letter
recently written by Mr. Wm. H. Mills,
of California, while in Paris in charge
of the Southern Pacific Company's ex-
j hibit at the Exposition. It is remark
able for two reasons, first, as evidence
of the great interest which is every
where manifested in that wonderful
State; also for the valuable infoima
tion it contains, and for which it is here
Paris, July 19th. 1900.
The panorama picture of the Mariposa
Grove is admitted by all. Including pho
tographers, to be the most wonderful pho
toirraphic reproduction that has ever been
made. Only yesterday a Committee rep
resenting the greatest Fruit-Growing As
sociation of France, to the number of fif
teen, visited the office. They were In
charge of their President, who Is the
largest Individual fruit grower In the
Republic They came here to get an illus
tration of the industrial and climatic con
ditions under which our fruit Is grown.
I explained to them fully the prolific char
acter of our climate, and by pictures and
Illustrations showed them that we had a
full crop every year; that our danger was
from over-bearing; that In no Instance
had we missed two crops In succession
from any cause. You will scarcely un
derstand the intense interest of this in
terview until it is explained that this
Fruit-Growing Association practices fruit
culture in two ways, wall-culture and
cultivating under glass (I forego French
designations). The out-door cultivation of
milt in France is extra-nazaraous ana is
fast being superseded by the artificial
means of wan ana glass.
The eentlemen who were here Tester
day explained that the most profitable
cultivation was that wherein all the fac
tors of success were in the hands of the
cultivator. 1 have used this argument
many times for the promotion of the policy
of irrigation. 1 nave saia mat wnen tne
moisture can be controlled, both with ret'
erence to moisture and drainage, civilized
culture will have been achieved; that at
that point only It becomes an art; but
where natural conditions are depended
upon and are not under the control of
man. the cultivation has not risen to tbe
dignity of an art. Its main factors are at
the hazard of chance.
When I explained, however, the condi
tions under whicn iruit was grown in
California, it became apparent both to my
self and mv auditors, that the natural
conditions in California are as nearly per
fect for the production ot truit as it is
possible to be, and that at all events
there are economies with us which will
rive us the fruit markets of the world
You may accept this conclusion as dem
onstrated by our exhibit and observation
here. California is hereafter to be the
orchard of the world, for reasons which
will be more easily made apparent in a
The reason for the foregoing narration
I will now Dresent: We had exhausted
the interest of the exhibit in showing the
fruits, the pineapples, the dates, tne
n runes, tho Deaches. the pears, the ap
ples, the vegetables in all their varieties.
The dav was extremely hot and the In
terview had become monotonous. I called
the company Into an attitude in which
they could get a good view of the pan
orama of tne great tree grove. I have
never heard more genuine expressions of
surprise and admiration. The President
of the Association, a man of fine mentality
and dignity of character, said, through tne
Interpreter to me. that the picture was
