There b nothing iniall ahout Chicago, and
ah. ia u sturdily independent that her son
hav caught her spirit and do as they please
if th. fancy suits tliem, and while rejoicing
In innovations, tbey do not scruple to cling
tenaciously to a practice tbat U couveiiient
and time and bit saving, even though it
liav. almut it the air of antiquity.
The strange that in aitbin her gates, as
well an those native and to the muiiwc born,
may and doubtless do see what obtains in
rorridgeville, whose I0 souls live in lively
expectancy of e-iiwt; New York in popula
tion and linlii m wealth, will not do for
I'hicago. This practice which has clung per
tinaciously lu all the mutation of time is
nothing more or lew tlmn the feeding of
horses on tlie public hlghwar. Uu where on.
will between the hours of II aud S and be
may see hones of all age and condition
crunching oats enjovatily. 8ouiw have feed
bags niiuzling their juwa; otliers are content
edly eating from soap liozes, aud still there
are mora which modestly gather theirs in
from the stones of the strot.
Mor must it fur a moment be supoaed that
this great crowd of fwders is owued by un
fashionable from tbe rural district, who
with economic forethought bring in th.
grain front their own bins. Contrariwise
the animals are city owned, many of w hose
masters are owners of great warehouses;;
other are the roperty of cab and hack com'
paniea; others yet are burnt. le drawers of n
press wagons. Oue may see the massive Por
cheron, tlie ponderous Clydwslale and the
handsome Morgan, as well as tbe ii. finite va
riety of scmb stock thick skinned and inert.
Scattered among the fat and sleek are the
lame, tbe bait and the blind, but all posueoned
of rigorous appetites and apparently indif
ferent to the fact that, like Louis XV of
France on stated occasions, tbey are dining
In ight of all tbe people.
Nor is any street too sacred or too crowded
for this outdoor diniug. Not onlv are tbe
dray horse, of Frauklin and Market streets
fed on tbnse busy thoroughfares, but also
along staid La iSallu, fast developing Dear
born, fashion gal tiering State, crowded and
packed South Water, bustling Clark and
hustling I-iftli avenue n each aud every
one of them may be seen daily, as well
upon other not named, lines of horses tum
bling to their oatD and oats only; for "long
feed is deuied the faithful animals at their
midday repast. Incidentally, it may be said
that home in the British army are "edu
cated" to rejection of all kinds of fodder,
living upon an exclusive diet of grain. Th.
stomachs of these animals, by that felicitous
faculty of adaptation of one's self to changed
conditions, become very much contracted,
and if any pass into the bands of farmers
they must again lie "educated" bv slow de
gress to acceptance of hay.
This fact is thrown out in order to empha
sise a statement made by a man well up in
horse knowledge to a reporter, to the effect
that horses accustomed to hay are not bene
fited by a meal of grain only ; that just as tlie
goose and tbe ostrich must have gravel as
aids to digestion, so the enormous stomach of
the equine demand hay or some other "fill
ing" substance to go along with tbe gram.
He declares he never, under any circum
stances, gives oat. alon. to his many horses.
"If agaiust nature, and too trying ou their
digestive apparatus, he declared.
Apropos to long feed. It may not he gener
ally known tbat in some parts of England
and of this country sawdust is nsed as a sub
stitute for hay. Ho.-ses are readily brought
to this diet by tbe help of salt, their fondness
for which will lead tbem to swallow th.
requisite quantity of sawdust if it have
sprinkling of salt in it. It is claimed by
high authorities that there is more nutrition
in sawdust than in hay, and that animals
actually thrive bettar under a diet of the
former than of the latter.
"HO SIXTEEN COl'RSE PrXXlrV"
Why this feeding of horses on the street.
this practice so common in villages, but cast
aside usually as soon as young citybood is
first reached This qnery was propounded to
a drayman nn Franklin street as be stood
with folded arms regarding his team of giant
horse, at their luncheon.
"You'd oughter kuow y'rself. Th. man
what gits ahead in this yer city's got to bustle
fer it. Ls fellers dont have no sixteen course
dinners, 'n' we dont have ter take a couple
nv hours for our wine. The business afor.
us is haul in'. He's tbe best feller tbat gits in

Honrs beaut over uice about eatiu'. Man V
boy, I've been drivin' a team twenty year,
V my experience is that a horse's taste lays
altogether in the amount of feed 'u' not In
how it's give to him. A pin. box Is Just as
sweat to biin as a mahogany trough. Hence
bis feelin'i ain't hurt by eatin' outdoors I
cant see uo use uv other folks complaiuin'.
No greater anomaly, nn stranger thing in
all tills big city of curionties, is presented
tban that! of Uiesa thousands of bar 1
horses leisurely eating Uieir oata, with air as
independent as tbough they owned all thev
law. I'rtilmlily they do, as their eyes rarely
get beyond their grain. Youth is as stoical
as age, the colt of four summers belugas
staid, sedate aud as settled down to basin
as the old mare of twenty. They may not be
epicurean iu their tastes, but they are hearty,
They may not exactly understand why they
should have their dining halls along tbe
streets, but such lack of knowledge does not
give them indigestion.
Iu silence they eat what Is laid before them,
and, like the thrifty and economical farmer
of Pawtunk, leave nothing upon their plates.
One old fellow, which feeds near the corner
of Fifth avenue and Lake streets, has a cry
lng sort of face, one that hints at great mem
ories, and he really does look as tbough h.
had been her. ever since tbe "forties," had
seen tbe entire growth of the city, mourned
th. death of thousand, and was infinitely
humiliated because b. must needs expos, th.
weakness of an enormous appetite to so many
strangers. Oaze at him for a moment, and
hi eyes will glance reproachfully, as tbough
be bad said: "I know better, but It isnt my
fault. If I had my way I'd eat Indoors, liks
whit, people. " null be seems to be altogether
an exception, th. remaining animals being
bout as indifferent to the habit as tbeir mas
ters, who compel them so to eat. Chicago

Th. Listener has in times past had some
thing to say about the temerity of telegraph
and telephone linemen, and of artisans who
work In tb. top stories of high buildings.
i uese people are not reckless, but they run
great risks. Of pur. recklessness, however,
I saw an Instance tbe other day tbat it would
be bard to beat. A farmer was driving
load of hay into town, and was solacing him
self with a cigar on top of th load. There
h. reclined, amid tbe dry hay, pufllug away
as complacently as If he were In a fir. proof
smoking room. As tber. have been no hay
can, nn reponea, in. lanner presumablv
delivered his load in good condition; but
viewing bun from a common sens, stand
point, his performance with the cigar was
uiusriy recKiesa ana foolhardy. A stray
spark would bar. set the entire load into a
blaza, and perhaps th. conflagration wouM
hav. roasted th. driver before be could get
off of his perch. St. Paul Pioneer Press.

liming th. Preachers.
1 know a man here who, before he got fa
mous and came to Washington, lived in a lit
tle town in the west. There was but one
church in the town, tbat Methodist, and they
nee. led n other, for they were all of that
simple faith. My distinguished friend was
superintendent of tb. Sunday school in
those da?. He went to Sunday school in
tbe morning and to church twice a day each
SaWietb. When be came to th. national
capital hit duties occupied much of his time.
Even Sundays became not bis own. i rom
going to Jhurch twice a nay n. got to going
but once. Hut even tbis took up more ot bis
tune tha l he could spare. He timed tbe
preacher t tbe church be bad selected to at
tend, and found that bis sermon were sixty
Sv. nunu e long.
He deci led on th. spot that he would hav
to find a reacher who could bav. bis say in
i tim.. Then he began to look up such a
man in be aletnotust denomination. Me
timed the sermons in the various Methodist
churches. The shortest b. found was fifty
minutes long. That would not do, so be de
cided to try th. Presbyterian churches. Th.
shortest termon he found there was forty-
seven minutes. The Baptists were next tried.
There be i;ot down to forty-five minute. In
tbe EpLsci'pal diocese he found some sermons
tbat were short enough, but the service took
up enougt. time to more than make up the
difference So he went around to the
churches of about all denominations except
tbe Cathdtc, nntil in a Congregatkwialist
church he found a minister who uniformly
occupied but thirty.flve minutes with his
sermon. Whether be is asleep or awake.

Painted House, the Healthiest.
StatistK s show that people live longer in a
brick hou e thau in stone, and that wooden
houses are the healthiest. Tbis suggests the
idea of using paint on masonry. An authority
states thai 100 years ago it was fashionable to
paint bri:k buildings white, and many
charming structures remain to attest the
value of a coat of paint in preserving the ma
sonry, ant. its pleasant, home like effect ia a
foil to the vines and shrubs with which even
city house are now commonly adorned. If
it should prove, as might be easily ascer
tained, U at tbe painted brick houses pre
serve their inhabitants more effectually from
sickness and premature death than the un
painted ot es. It would be worth while to re
vive the ancient fashion, and, with our
greater resources in tbe way of materials and
ideas, exu rior colorings might become a im
portant ai. accessory to tbe architecture of
tbe Twentieth ceotury as it was to that of
the Twelfth or Thirteenth. New York Star.
ASLEEP AT THE BRAKE.
Street Car Olivers Who Succumb to Hard
Work and Monotony.
'8ome piople dont think that this is bard
work," sal 1 a middle aged car driver to a
young poll -eman who had Just swung him
self upon t front platform of a car upon
which I wis enjoying a smoke. Yhe police
man laug.ied dor lively, for be bad "bin
"If ev. rlaating hard on your feet on a
car platform, and it's pretty near as bad on
patrol duty," said he, "There a little mora
variety alut it for the ofllcer, for be tramp
awhile and then he can stand still awhile, aud
sometimes, if the roundsman ain't around,
sit down, or at least lean against something.
But on a ci-r one Is standing up right along,
and I tell jou it's terrible hard on the feet."
"Yes," o limed In the driver, a he put the
brake on b u-d and stopped bis vehicle to per
mit an age-! negres with a basket to come
aboard. "Its blamed hard on th. feet and
ou th. rhea:, and the back, too. Many a time
my chest I as been as sure a my feet. The
brake strai is a fallow's arms and shoulders.
and the ret is are palling on him all the time,
specially ii slippery weather. And Iord,
how tired cue does get of it!"
"Tired ! Well I should smile," said the ex
driver in uniform, "why, there's lota of
fellows in t m business tbat goa right dead

ber a driver on tbe same line that I used to
work fur 'who got in the way of going to
sleep regular on his last trip, hie got sus
pended for it several Unms, and at last oue
day he run luto a wagou and smashed the
splashboard in. Twas a terrible Jolt, and
when be woke up and saw what he'd done be
just quit wi rk rhiht off. He would bare been
tired anyhi w, I guess. Now he's a night
watchman i.nd say h cant get tired enough
"It's the Monotony that makes a man tired,
as much as .be bard work," said the driver
as the pollm man alighted at tbe corner of
treat, auut i be oar whirled around another
earner out the electric glare and into the
a-mi-giar t a aide street. "Yea, It' true
suough limit men going to sleep while
they're driving.. We work about ten hours
on eud now and when we're through I tell
you a man ilon't feel fit for much. But as for
sleeping, wl.y there used to be an old chap
that worket on an east side down town line
tbat run all night. II. had a night car, and
n. went to i leep just a suou as he came to
work. He'd put on tb. brake and Eton or
start bis cat according to tbe bell, and do al
most averyuiing neoesaary while he was a-
snoring like a fog burn. Passengers used to
be quite sca-ed at tbe noise he'd make, aud
his conductor got so tired of going ou the
front platform to wake him up tbat he told a
'spotter' about It. Donl the 'spotters' ever
get on-to mt n sleeping? Why, no, not at night.
'cause there ain't no 'spotters' about then
worth talking of. That old chap was just as
good asleei as awake. He never ran into
anything. Seemed to know in his sleep when
anything as ahead. Of course his horse
would slack up, and when be felt tbe reins
loos. I supp jse he put un bis brake out of in
stinct. I remember one night I was off duty
and I board-id bis car. I rude about tweuty
blocks with aim snoring away, and be stopied
four or five times to take ou or drop passen
gers, Dut b never woke up. Then all
once a fir. engine came galloping down the
avenue like mad. I was Just going to grab
tbe reins m self and bold tbe horse straight
when the oli I chap wok. up and put ou his
Drake. I be engine (lashed passed, bell clang
lng and me.i a-bollerlng, and when it had
passed he sat down again they allowed '.m
to use a nut on tbe night oars and went off
to sleep without ever noticing me. I shook
him by the shoulder and he opened his eyes
and say he, 'Why, Bill, where did you come
