THE FIGHT ON THE RAILROADS.
The people are running amuck on the ]
* railroad question*. In North Carolina
the railroads have agreed to submit to
the two and a quarter cents a mile rate,
to sell tickets at that price, and mean
while they appeal on the ground that
the rate is confiscatory. We do not

third. If they can cut it one third,
they can cut it one half and two thirds
and after awhile the railroad owners I
will say "Take the old nusiance of a
railroad and run it your selves.
Meantime, reduction in railroad pas
senger fares helps only a part of the
people. It helps the drummer who
spends .$500. a year for railroad tickets.
Ithelps the manufacturer who spends
$500. a year for tickets. It helps the
well-to-do man who spends $200. a year
sending his family to the mountains or
to the seashore for the summer and who
sends his boys and girls to college. It
helps the lawyers who go to the sur
prcme court three or four times a year
and it helps the merchants who go to
New York for goods twice a year" Half
the people spend not over five or ten
dollars a year in railroad riding and
nearly half, the poorer women and
children scattered about on the
country farms, don't ride on the rail
roads at all. Reduction in passenger ]
fares may save a cotton mill operative
two dollars a year but it will save the
cotton mill president $200. dollars
year. Isn't that so?

the railroad rates OU Missun mules?

third in freight rates would help every

Will he make it?
I asked him this question the pthpff
day. He turned in his chair and looked
at me. The muscles of his face hu'f re
laxed. Peary seldom smiles.
"I hope to make It," -he said, Quietly.
"This will be my last attempt . I be

Despite the softness of his voice one
felt the conviction of the conquest. He
gave no promise, no hint of the break

he advanced within 2?? miles of the goal..
There was no boasting of past achieve

any other In this uqest of the pole. He j

"Dog meal?" Perhaps repealed.
Why, one who can eat hog meat or
craves the delicacy of Limburger clu e.-"1
can have nothing to say against dog.
To be sure, the hind leg of an over
worked dog is a liltle tough and rank
sometimes, but a man who has eaten
mutton stew in a cheap restaurant can
not complain, nor is he apt lo com

eat their comrades when they fall by

solves the problem of feeding the ani

of taking dog-biscuit with me on my

dogs will eat it, the dogs which 1 use

The answer came concisely:

When he arises he hastily pulls on a pair ;

Who would think of the pretzel ns an

have formed out of anuus, a year?by
which they meant a year ring. The ring
represented the sun's annual circuit
and the four spokes tho Bcasons. It
was afterward known under other
names In the more northerly countries
of Europe. There aro two stories of
tho origin of the hot cross bun. Tho
Christian missionaries to England aro
said to have discovered that, although
they could alter tho views of the peo

In the observance of holy week the

was indicated by two boundary marks
made In the dough to show tho length
and width of the piece. The loaves
wore sold In churches and wero car

So the custom of crossing tho bread

Shapes of bread whose origin has been
traced to odd circumstances. The cres
cent shaped rolls which ono sees In
some parts of the city had a curious
birth. On one of tho occasions when
tho Turks besieged Vienna, Peter
Windier and his wife had a bakery in
Hint city. This baker's patriotism was
tinctured with a sense of humor and
possibly a souse of business. At any
rate, he conceived the Idea of making
rolls in the shape of a crescent, the
emblem of the Turks. They found a
ready sale, for everyhody wanted to
devour tho half moons typifying tho
Mohammedans at the outer gate.
Germany Is the home of commemora
tive cakes and bread. Other countries,
while having as many varieties, have
not woven sentiment about them to
tho same extent.
A great many Americans would not
know what schwaanerkuchen Is unless
they asked n native of the old German
City of Rostock. It Is to bo had only
at a certain season of the year because
it commemorates a kindly act of many
years ago. Rostock was surrounded by
an enemy. The city gates wero closed,
and the enemy had come close to tho
walls, w*Uh clubs, spears, heavy mortar
slings and many other old time Imple
ments of war. Once and again and
again they rushed upon the walls with
thunderous noiso and clanging weap
ons, but the brave burghers as often
forced them back. Thon, urged for
ward by threatening famine, tho latter
sallied beyond the gates and drove
back (1)0 foe until the siege was raised.
it was with groat Joy that they saw
the bakers of Scft'waan, a village
twelve miles down the river Warnow,
at the gate as the enemy drew away,
bearing heavily laden baskets of cakes.
It was such a godsend to the famished
burghers that they rownrded tho
Schwaanor bakers by giving them the
privilege of coming to Rostock every
year oil Maundy Thursday to offer
their cakes for sale. For many years
this custom prevailed, to the profit of
the bakers from tho neighboring town.
In time, however, the bakers of Ros
tock, showing ingratitude, some might
think, baked the schwaanerkuchen
themselves. To this very day every
body in Rostock eats schwaanerkuchen
in holy week.
Another German bread, which in
shape resembles a Capital W, owes
its existence to tho siege of the Ger
man town of Krallsholm In 1.170. It is
called haar ?ffen, or hair monkeys, a
name suggested by the appearance of
the apparition which raised the siege.
The efforts of the besiegers to take the
place had been in vain. They decided
to starve the burghers and their fami
lies. So they sat down before tho
town. There they sat for seven months.
By this lime the provisions were get
ting short, and starvation seemed In
evitable. One woman had pondered
long upon the subject, and finally
she said to tho head of tho defenders:
"The people outside the WJ*H aro su
perstitious. Let mo mnsquorndo at
night before them on the city wall In a
peculiar dress." she was permitted to
carry out her plan. When her fantastic
flguro was seen upon the wall In the
dim light, Hitting from point to point,
climbing nimbly over obstacles, taey
were horror stricken.
"Haar nffol" they exclaimed, point
ing at the apparition on tho wall. "It
Is an evil spirit." The following night
they tied from the town.
In remembrance of the success of
the ruse this peculiar shaped cake was
made. For nioro than 500 years the
authorities of tho elty havo celebrated
the anniversary by distributing largo
quantities of theso cakes among tho
I.r and the children of the city.?
