On the Corner.
While reading the Harre letter in a
Boston Sunday paper a few days ago
the Inspector discovered that a "Space
Writer" had discovered a new way for
securing funds for a public hospital.
His plan was to have .00 of our prosper
ous citizens take out an insurance pol
icy for 1(100 to be paid in 1.5 years.
This it was claimed by the correspon
dent, gives us $.")0,000 15 years from
now and assures the city of a hospital.
The Inspector asked the Club for an
opinion regarding the plan, and all who
responded, denounced it as too slow
and not m any way satisfactory. The
better way they said to raise funds for a
city hospital was to raise them among
former citizens who are now wealthy
men and live other cities and wilh these
erecta hospital. Here the Inspector
thought was a good work for the ."Civic
Federation to carry out. The women
would be the best fitted for such work
for who would refuse to subscribe for
such a purpose when asked to do so by
a woman ?
The Civic Federation will surety re
ceive liberal patronage at their May
parly which they announce soon to be
held at the Armory. "On The Corner"
will have a goodly number in atlend
encc to aid in the good work. The la
dies have undertaken a most valuable
venture and should have the support of
very loyal citizen of the city.
"On The Corner Club"' will it is ex
pected send out a con-., any for the first
regiment of Sharp shooters when the
President issues his call. It is possi
ble that a bund consisting of a hand or
gan and a phonograph will also be sent
to the seat of strife from The Corner.
The Inspector learns that "On The
Comer Club" intend to have a house
wanning some evening next week when
it is expected some member of the City
government and a representative! of the
Water Companies will give a joint de
bate on the question of ranting prcmils
for laying of pipes through certain
streets. Knowing the ipialilications of
tin- probable debaters the Inspector
assured those "On The Corner" and
ihose who read the repor's here record
ed that there "Will be a hot time n
The local corps of the Salvation Army
will be asked to furnish music on the
"Corner" Sunday afternoon, as their
patriotic airs are likely to arouse the
members to such an extent that if "The
National Volunteer lb servc'' even open
an ollice here they will have plenty of
Those if "The Club" who indulged
in so much kickiirp-becausc there were
no lights the past few nigiits ought to
be thankful that we are not every night
in the same condition. There was a
lime when Harre was only feebly light
cl willi unci nt kerosene lamps in order
to find which each late pedestrian was
obliged lo use a lantcin. If we could
stand it for several thousand days and
nil. bis nerhans we ought to be content
for a few nights to remain in the "Dark" j
when it is in aid i f a church organiza
tion which is always of help to any city.
The Inspector has been affected as much
as others by the failure to have the lights
but like otheis "On '1 he Corner" has
to grin and bear it.

IR6'0P3 AND DRINK.
The Curious Statistics Showing What En,
ropean Nations Pay For Them.
Tbo friends and advocates of "uni
versal peaco" and the foes of iutemper
auco and inebriety aro pretty generally
agreed that tbo expenses attending war
and war armaments and liquid bever
ages of an intoxicating or exhilarating
kind are unduly large. There is an old
proverb it is not a Swiss proverb, of
course to tbo effect that a man who
drinks moro than ho should "drinks
liko a Swiss," and it is for this reason,
perhaps and residents of the republic
of Switzerland say for no better one
that tbo fame of residents of Switzer
land for sobriety is not as farreacbiug
as the famo of tbo Scotch, for instance,
for frugality. A recent computation
which has appeared shows that the an
nual expenditures of the Swiss for wine,
beer, cider and braudy are 175,000,000
francs, six times as much as is spent on
tho army. Germany expends, or, more
properly, individual Germans expend,
$500,000,000 a year on liquid refresh
ments, distilled or fermented chiefly
beef and Kbino wine and $120,000,
000 a year on tbo German army. Franco
expends in u year 500,000,000 on
drink, chiefly wine, apd $140,000,000
a year on the maintenance of the army
of the republic. Tho Italians expend
$250,000,000 u year for liquors, wines
and cordials and $55,000,000 for the
Italian army, tbo expenditures being in
about tbo sumo ratio as in other nations.
Austria Hungary expends less upon
liquor in a your than any other conutry
of tbo first class in Europe, amounting
to about $225,000,000, though persons
who aro familiar with life along the
blue Danube might not unreasonably
come to tbo conclusion that $200,000,
000 nf this sum was spent in the city
of Vienna alone in lager beer. Such,
however, is not the caso. In the moun
tainous districts, particularly in the
Tyrol, Transylvania and in Croatia,
very little wine is drunk, and though
Hungary produces a largo and steadily
iucreaasiug amount of wine a very largo
proportion of it is exported to other
countries. Kelatively not much of it is
kept for home consumption.
Tbo Austria-Hungarian army costs
$70,000,000 a year, or less than cue
third of tbo cost of the liquors cou
Bumed in a year. Tbo Russians expend
$300,000,000 a year in liquors and
$150,000,000 a year, or one-half as
much, for tbo maintenance of the army.
England expends $4h0,000,000 a year
on beer, ale, wino, porter, gin, rum and
smoky whisky and $90,000,000 a year
on tbo maintenance of the British army.
No one knows exactly bow much is
spent iu the United States on liquor in
a year, especially in prohibition states,
but it is supposed that tbo whisky tak
en lor medicinal purposes costs each
year moro than does the maintenance
of tbo regular army. New York Sun.
