The City or Th .ldelphl and the Io
p e'n Kights.
When you have your big town,
some one must own the land and the
houses. It t. few own them, the
many will not like it They ought
not to like it In a city where every
thing is right, every family will own
something. 'JTus will not come about
unless the lavs are right. The laws
are not good unless bread is cheap,
unless men have skill in their work,
and are of saving habits, and unless
land is cheap, the city plan good, and
wrong-doers are locked up at once.
But all theso things will not bring
about the right city, in which- most
people own something, unless the
laws make it easy for a man who
works with his hands to buy the
house he livtjs in. If a man owns
that, he willoare more about looking
after his hone than about making a
row because somebody else is richer
than he is.
This row is. what the older people
call the "so ial question," says St
Nicholas. Now, a man who owns
the house he lives in does not want
to make a ro. He is too busy taking
care of his house. You cannot make
a rioter out of that man. He is a
capitalist" He will never be a
turbulent stiiker. He is. in the best
sense of the word, independent
Riches aro worth what they give.
The best thi ngs that iey can give
are comfort and security. The man
who owns th 3 house he lives in has
those. In Philadelphia any indus
trious, savin-; man can own is house
before he diirs; and more such men
own houses than do not. l'hiladelphia
is the only c;ty in the world in which
this is true. This is the biggest and
best thing which can be said of any
The law in Philadelphia has made
this easy, in the lirst place, by sepa
rating the owning of the ground on
which the house is built and the
owning of the house which stands on
the ground. This is dono by what
aro called Ixcd ground-rents.'" A
ground-ront is paid for the use of
the ground independent of the house
which stands on it In Philadelphia,
a ground-rent once fixed by the man
who lirst so, Is use of the land can
not be changed and lasts forever. A
ground-ront does not grow if the
ground pots to bf worth more: It
stay, the .;-e. If the ground and
liou.-e get 5 tie worlfc more, ihc mau
who owns he ground-rent does not
benefit by this, but the inuii who
owns the Louse: Practically, when
a house is bought under ttiis jilun,
only the ho.ise is bought the land is
paid for by a lixed yearly sum which
ca.inot be added to.
The law did this. This is one step.
The next must be a desire to save
money, and ability to use it after it
is saved. This is done in Philadel
phia by sa ings-banks, which deposi
tors themse lves manage, in order to
get togeth r the money for each to
pay for a house. When you and 10,
000 other persons put your pen
nies in a savings-bank, they make
many dollars. These dollars are
taken by those in charge of the savings-bank
und lent to men who pajj
interest This interest is finally
paid to you, less the cost of taking
care of the money.
An Opossum's Suicide.
One of the opossums at the Central
menagerie, New York, was found
dead in Me cage the other morning.
Hi tail made a circle around his
neck and was caught between the
wire meshes of the cage. To Keeper
McGuiness, who found the animal
hanging life a little fur ball, it was
a clear case of suicide. The opos
sums were in a cag near that of the
wildcats, end one of these animals
was found lying dead upon the floor
of its den. The cat had died during
the night in an unaccountable man
ner. It was thought that it had
choked to death while attempting to
swallow a bone, Director Smith is
quite certnin that the opossum com
mitted suicide, for its tail had first
been coilel about its neck and then
thrust between the wire meshes
and caught by the weight of the body.
The bodies will be stuffed and placed

"I struck a literary genius in an
unexpected quarter," romarked New
ton Beers, the actor, to some pro
fessional gentlemen. We were play
ing 'Lost in London' with specialty
acts to one night stands down South.
One dismal Saturday afternoon we
landed in a small town. As night
set in it began to pour down rain. It
was a fearful night, but to my sur
prise there were about 100 people out
to see the performance. But the
gloom and damp without were in
fectious, and in spite of all our ef
forts no enthusiasm could be ex
torted from the crowd. The next
morning I picked up the local paper
and was astonished to see under the
headline, I.ost in iondon,' a full
half column. I was curious to see
what kind of a dramatic critic was
to be found in so small a place
"The article began with a descrip
tion of the night before. It was as
true to nature as anything Dickens
ever wrote. I could hear between
the lines the monotonous patter of
the rain and se the flickering lights
of swaying lanterns ami men moving
about the streets swearing at the
elements. And the description went
on to within a half-dozen lines of the
end of the article, when it abruptly
wound up by saying that in addition
to the horrors of the night Newton
Beers was in town with his -Lost in
London' show, and suggested that if
the play could be cut. otT and let the
audience have nothing but the
specialties it wouid be appreciated
by the amusement loving public. I
heartily enjoyed the article. It was
a perfect description of a rainy night
in London. Before Icsving town I
hunted up that critic and was sur
prised to find a rural looking rooster
who had never had au assignment on
a daily paper in his life. I tried to
get him to go to New York, and I
offered to assist him, but he would
not go. I bought a dozen copies of
the paper containing the article and
sent thorn to friends in various parts
of the country, and all were deeply
impressed with it I presume the
fellow is still doing drudgery and
hiding his talents on that obscure

What's In One Name.
The first half of the name "Ferdi

the second half is a little uncertain,
but may be conjectured to be prob

Spanish Goths who gave it its earliest
vogue in the peninsula as Fernando,
or Fernan. San Jernando, king of

Irving's -Rip Van Winkle" is be
lieved to have its foundation iu the
wonderful story which Pliny relates
concerning the extraordinary ex
perience of a shepherd named Epi
menides. The si-enc is laid in Crete;
the time summer, arid Epimenides a
boy of some 1.") years. During the
very wriiieNt part of the day he
found that some of the sheep were
missing, and at about the same time
heard prolonged bleutings from the
almost, inaccessible portions of a
neighboring mountain. He grasped
his crook an;l started o!T in the direc
tion of the sounds. The path was a
very difficult one to travel over, the
day hot. so that long before he
reached the str ay sheep he was so
overcome with fatigue that he lay
down in a dry place in a cool cavern
to sleep. He slept, so Pliny gravely
informs us, .57 years. .At last, when
he had finally managed to shake off
the terrible lethargy that ha J held
him spellbound for more lhan half a
century, he returned to the herd
only to find a brother younger than
himself a tottering, gray-haired
grandfather. That ".11-wind" prov
erb is very appropriate in this case,
for wo find that Epimenides' enforced
slumbers had endowed him with
miraculons powers. Ho became a
great epic poet and Gnostic philoso
pher, and even defied death itself for
nearly three centuries, not dying un
til he had celebrated his 285th birth
