THE GBE1V FIRE LOSS, The report of Insurance Commissioner Merrill cf Massachusetts contains some very timely matter. He calls attention to the enormous amount of fire loss which annual ly takes place in the United States. It is estimated that last year this loss amounted to $120,000,000, or about half as mueh as the entire expense of carrying on the United States government. If to this is added the expense of maintaining large lire depart ments in all the jreat centers ef population, and small ones in the lesser communities, and the costs and profits of the insurance companies, the outlay that the property owners of this country are compelled to make to protect themselves against loss by fire is quite equal to the entire expense of maintaining the United States government, pins the surplus that is now accumulating in the treasury. These are impressive faots. But it appears that even this immense loss does not make much impression on the growth of the coun try. In spite of it there is a tremendous in crease in insnrable property. The commis sioner reports the fire risks outstanding to be )939, 305,768 greater than at the close of last year. As it is presumable that property is no better insured now than it was twelve months ago, the only means of accounting for this great increase in the volume of busi ness is that there has been substantially this mount of new wealth added to the country, upon which insurance is desired. More and more attention is being paid to the great fire loss of this country. And it is generally admitted that it is to a largo extent unnecessary. The Boston Herald puts the matter forcibly when it says: Taking into account what we now annually pay out in in surance and in the maintenance of large and expensive fire departments, we are paying an enormous interest cost, probably as large as 25 per cent, per annum, in order to effect a temporary gain. Considered as a financial problem, we should make an immense saving in money if all of the buildings that were put up in this country were constructed in a manner to meet the requirements of the building laws of Italy, Germany or France. The original outlay would be somewhat larger, but the incidental savings that could thereby be brought would in a few years entirely offset this added expenditure. EDITORIAL, NOIM. The Bell telephone is still at "the top of the heap," and is likely to stay there awhile longer. The Boston Transcript does not hesitate to assert that thousands of women are engaged ia the liquor traffic, and if women were al lowed to vote on exoise matters all these women would vote while very few others would. People are not satisfied with having bliz zards. They want to know how the word "blizzard" originated. ' An English journal claims that it is of English origin, "may I be blizzerd" being an old oath in the midland countries. Those who have been "read to" when they couldn't help themselves will not be sur prised to read that during a coroner's inquest "out west" the other day it came out that the dead man's wife bad been reading to him for an hour before he suddenly expired. Obituary writing is a hard thing to do feel ingly and skillfully. The Sunday Dispatch, of Borne, Georgia, thus shows how it may be done: Sweet j little Marion Baker the baby child of Mr. H. H. Baker has vacated this life and took her flight to the land where the tree of life is bathed iu the perpetual felicity of the sunshine of righteousness. Death seemed cruel when it threw its icy hands around one so pure, lovely and fair, dosing the violated eyes, for ever more, and yet knowing that her sweet spirit enjoys its won derous awakening to all greatness and good ness of its life beneath the eternal eyes of our Father, all seems well.' A writer in one of the Munich (Germany; papers institutes a comparison between dif ferent kinds of wood used by carnage mat era and in favor of the home material as against the foreign grown; and, while admit ting the very great excellence of hickory tim ber for the manufacture of wheels iu especial on account of its toughness and durability yet, on the basis of repeated observations and experiments, the writer in question asserts German timber, especially for spokes, can be placed side by side and is equal under the same condition to the American hickory the kind here referred to being the acacia timber, This is less known in northern Germany, bat in the southern part it is used in preference to hickory, while in both northern and south ern Germany hickory timber is employed for all carriages of the finer class. Both in Ger many and Switzerland, however, many car riage builders discard hickory altogether; the toughness of the reoently cut timber is not questioned, but the quality of the aeacia tim ber when used fer wheels and kept dry al ways remains the same, the hickory having the disadvantage even when painted of be coming porous on the inside. Perhaps it doesn't really make muoh differ ence who owns the Keely motor, but Bennett C. Wilson, of Philadelphia, thinks it does, and ia trying to get the courts in that eity to al low the maohine to be inspected on the ground that he believes the motor to be the same one Keely assigned to him for valuable considerations nearly twenty years ago. Wil son avers that in 1869, when Keely was var nishing furniture for him at $10 a week. Keely elaimed to be working on the process of developing a machine for the generation and utilizing of a new power, and an agree ment was made whereby Wilson furnished tha tools, materials and money, while Keely devoted his time to tho development. patent was taken out, Wilson claims.in 1869, which Keely assigned to him on account of the large amount of money which he had re ceived from Wilson. Shortly afterward they fell out and Keely went on inventing on his own account. Wilson began to hear a good deal about the motor a dozen years later and tried to get a peep at it, but Keely was shy and intimated chat he was working something else. Wilson got the court to en join Keely from dismantling the motor in its present shape and now he has asked that he may look at it to see whether it is the same invention Keely assigned to him in 1869. A prominent English physician is satisfied that the dwellers in American cities are neu rotics and dyspeptics. First of all, he says. the Puritans who emigrated to New England were characterized by a neurotic tempera ment, for Puritanism was largely a disease of the biliary duct. And so ever since it has been the neurotic member of the English family who has grown dissatisfied with the conditions of life in the old country, and has emigrated either to Australia or America. The climate and the peculiar conditions of life that exist in this country have developed and intensified this original neurotic type, until it may now be fairly called the Ameri can type, and is indeed so recognized throughout Europe. This type exists in its most perfect form in the larger American cities. For it is the neurotic member of the family who is most inclined to "kick" against the monotonous life of the country. All snob, men drift into cities where they can find an outlet for their energetic and often splenetic unrest. In their case also the neurotio ten dency is increased by their environments. They become small in physique, and as a rale are chronic dyspeptics. Their children are apt to succumb to the maladies of child hood. The men are kind and indulgent to their families, but irritable. The women are bright, quick witted, spirituelle but restless. They are fond of living gregarious lives, and spend a large portion of their time in relat ing to each other the evidences of their phys ical weakness. And so in three generations at most these highly developed but diseased men and women die out, literally consumed by the fire of their own abnormal vitality. This is interesting and plausible.

Difference Between Flshtlse With Fists and. With Mittens Rules or the Prize Itlns by the Marquis of ttaeens Berry. I From the London Sunday Times. The exaot difference between what is called a glove fight and a fight with knuckles, or, as it is elegantly termed, with "the raw una," is not as widely known as it certainly ought to be, considering the present appa rent "popularity" of scientific ' fisticuffs. What then ia the difference between tha two modes? Let us see. The first rnle which governs the prize ring is that the battle shall be fought upon a bit of turf. By the consent of tha high con tracting parties the rope and stakes, form ing a square of twenty-four feet, might be allowed to enclose so much sand, matting, mattress, sawdusted deal floor or feather bed, but the rule says curtly, turf. The scratoh is a mark in the center of the ring. "Each man shall be attended by a eecond and a bottle holder." Tossing for corners (the man who has his antagonist placed down hill with the sun in his eyes has an advantage to start with), providing each fighter "with a handkerchief of a oolor suitable to his own faney," the final disposal of those trophies, the appointment of umpires and referee need not bo dwelt upos. s The seconds are to see that the men carry no improper substance in their scant contin uations, and to take care that the boots worn by the gladiators contain no more than the regulation numoer or spikes namely two m the broadest part of tho sole and one ia the heel. Then, principals and seconds having shaken "hands across" in tho center of the ring, the squires are to withdraw and suffer the battle to proceed. It is the duty of the seconds to remove their men when one or both fall to their respective eorners, and "af ford them the neoeasary assistance" until, at the expiration of thirty seconds, tho umpire cries "Time!" Thereupon each man must leave the knae of his bottle holder unaided and walk to his own side of the scratch. The rules as to foul blows, getting down without being hit, butting and so forth, aro generally known, but there is one solemn in junction which is not, and aa it was evident ly the auggestion of a dry humorist, I quote it: "The seoonds," Ac, "shall refrain from all offensive and irritating expressions, in all respeots conducting themselves with order and decorum, and confine themselves to tha diligent and careful discharge of their duties to the principals!" The comments of ono Baldock on this admonition would be edify ing: "The nse of hard substanooa suoh aa , stones or sticks, or of rosin (sic), shall be deemed foul." So runs the law, but while the letter of it is obeyed its spirit is disre garded. A pocketful of powdered resin is part of the equipment of a second, who now and then dusts his principal's hands with the stuff. It may be mentioned in passing that some days before the day of battle the hands of the bruisers are Eoaked in a pickle for the purpose of making them hard. So much for knuckles; now for gloves. Under Lord Oueensberry's rules competi tors are to box in a twenty-four foot ring in light boots and shoes without spikes, or in socks with knickerbockers, breeches or trous ers, and to wear jerseys. The number of rounds shall be three: the duration of the first two rounds shall be respectively three minutes, and the third four minutes, the in terval between each round one minute. The spirit of fair play dominates these regula tions. JNote tor example these: "The refe ree shall have power to stop the contest in either tne second or third round in the event of its being very one-sided," and he say "disqualify a competitor who is boxing un fairly by flicking or hitting with the open gloves, or by hitting with the inside or butt of -the hand, the wrist or elbew, or by wrest ling or roughing at the ropes." In glove contests for enaurance, m point of fact glove fights, we have the nearest approach to the severity of knuckle fights. The rounds are of three minutes' duration and one minute time. No . wrestling or hugging allowed. The men fight to a finish; that is until oho is knocked out." Fiom this rough reckoning up of the dif ference between the two modes it will be gathered that the spirit of determined fight obtains equally in each. Now a glove fight er, a brilliant two-handed hitter, master of every move in the game, is not therefore a capable and enduring bruiser of the Tom bayers type. Savers for that matter rather condoned performing with the gloves, know ing how much better he was without them. Kilram on the other hand declares for them, and yet his one ungloved achievement was brilliant enough. The great John L. Sulli van, if one may judge from his record, has found the achievement of distinction with the gloves more to his liking than winning it by means of "setting about" his opponent in the naked, natural way. It is not improba ble that Edhnd eritics of the two schools or pugilism, for they are separate, have given heed to this in their forecast of the eloquent bruisei's immediate future. However, this is not the place to discuss J. L. S. If I mis take not the Young Men's Christian associa tion practice athletics, pursuing in the main the plan adopted and made popular by the German gymnasium at King's Cross some twenty-five years. Are they as catholic in their exercises, I wonder, as were the Ten tons of that rather remote peried? The King's Cross prototype of Professors Mul lens and Donaelley was a froressor Jones, who taught the young idea how to box iu a manner that would have enchanted suen a muscular Christian a "Tom Brown" or Charles Kingsley. Those, however, were not the days of the yueensberry rules or 01 box ing bouts for endurance. These are. Whether or not we have improved on the old system I leave it to the experts to determine. One thing is certain, and that is that those who condemn prize fighting with naked fists and uphold boxing with gloves, on the ground that tho fonner is fighting and the latter is not, will have to reconsider their case. XIIE SCOTCH Oil. ninES. A Curious Petroleum Field. That Is Waitlns for American Wells to 11 11 11 Dry. From the New York Sun. William Findlay of West Cald&r, Scotland, which ia iu the ancient oil shale region of that country, has been making a tour of the Pennsylvania petroleum fields during the past few weeks, and was iu New York this week. "I am more than amazed," said he, "at what I have seen. The petroleum of Scot- land is mined like coal, and although I had read of the oil welis of America, I was not prepared for such a vast difference in the methods of oil production. The Scotch petroleum is not in the fluid state, but in a shale formation. The extracting of the products of this shale was for many years a most important industry, and is quite an extensive one yet; but the American oil, both illuminating and lubricating, is now set down in our markets cheaper than the bcoten oil can be produced, and how long our oil production will last is only a question of how long national pride will resist considerations of econ omy. "The Scot eh oil shale ia black, and lies at a depth of about 400 feet beneath the surface. The shale-producing regions are all between Edinburgh and Glasgow, and are known as the oil fields ot West Cal der. They are very extensive, and liter ally inexhaustible. That is one hope we have. The fluid oil of this country will undoubtedly become exhausted or greatly cartsiled iu production some time in the future. It would not b9 kind in me to say that I hope so, but well I am inter ested ia West Calder. When your fields cease to ponr ont a quantity of oil that ena ble yon to refine it, export it and sell it in Sootland at a less figure than it costs us to extract the oil from the shales at the very threshhold of Scotch markets, we will come to the front with our mines again, and know that whatever happens they can't be exhausted. "When the oil fields of West Calder were being operated to a full capaeity the shale refinery there, known as the Addis -well oil works, and which cover seventy five acres of ground, gave employment to over two thousand men. In various parts of the field there were shale crushing works, not unlike your coal breakers, where the shale is run on being taken from the mines. It is broken np into small pieces and the crude oil extracted at the crushers. What we call crude oil you would call tar over here. The refiners take it in that con dition, and from it extract illuminating and lubricating oil, ammonia and wax. The latter is called parafflne in the oil trade of this country. The tar from a ton of shale will yield fourteen gallons of illuminating oil. This is subjected to four different aoid distillations, each one much heavier than any the American fluid petrolenm re quires. The result is a clear, white, high flash illuminant, as good as American ker osene, but four times as expensive. If the American product simply came iu competi tion with our illuminating oil the effect on our trade would not be of much consequence, as in that branch of the Scotch oil business is not where the profit lies. The lubricant, the ammonia and the wax are the products which make the shale mines valuable. The American lubricating oil is cheaper, and those who use it say better than any. The latter altogether I can't agree with. Of course the American oil does not interfere with our ammonia products nor with our wax trade, but we can't afford to produce kerosene and lubricating oil to throw away in order that wo may get at the ammonia and wax that the shale contains. I am forced to say, therefore, to use an Americanism, that the Scotch oil business is not booming at the present time." 1,200,000 LADIES HOW WEAR THE CORSET. - - . . , . .,Artt1v TTeAlthraL and the Host Durable known to tha trade.
