"Adelaide, Sibley and Sproat!" called, out a Wo.Klward avenue conductor. An embrjo conductor at his side, whom he was instructing in the dint's of piloting ;t- street car, looked at him in a helriless sort of way. "You'll have to take a course in memory lessons, old man," said the old "con" to the "ii een" man, "for the streets crossing Woodward are puzxleis and no mistake. You see." he added, turning to an observer, "very few "f the streets are named alike on both sides of the thoroughfare, and this is a. source of p:reat perplexity to tile ap prenth e conductor." Just then the new man rang no a fare instead of Rivinsr the signal In stop. In his nervousness he had puilei the tvronz bell. "It is very easy to make a mistake of that sort," remarked the experienced conductor. "The. ropes are on the san.e side of the car, an.! some of the oldest of us are liable to pull the wrons rone sometimes. It is no easy matter to break in a new conductor, though soin are much more apt at picking up 1 1 i e details than others. Yes. you're risdit, there are a Kreat many details to learn this is no la.y man's job. Of course one of the most, important things is , knowledge of the streets on the route, and this must be mastered thoroughly before a man is given a car. When 1 J am edven a man to break in I usually ! advise him to get a map of the city i and study it thoroughly. It is a srood ! plan for him to memorize the oros-. streets well before Roins out on his maiden trip alone. Of course some men are much (pricker students than ofhei and become familiar with the names of the streets cpiite readily. This is really a hard proposit ion on Woodward ave nue, where tile blocks are so short and the side streets have so many hand!--s. I dare say it is the most remarkable street in the country in that particular. "How loner does it take to break in a new man? Well, that depends on the man. Some men after a short trial are found to be totally unfitted for the job, and the work of training them is enouuh to turn an old hand gray. Others attain a. good decree of efln ieney within a few days. Sometimes it requires about three weeks to educate a new conductor, and men very oiien ne will ttirnw up the fon l arier two or three days experience with out a chnperone. Yes, a great percent age of the apprentice conductors aban don the work after a brief experience. They find that the job is not so easy as they may have anticipated. "Street ear conductors are recruited from all walks of life. A Rood many come in from the country. This man that I am putting through the mill was formerly a railroad fireman, and he is learning the ropes rapidly." "It ousrht to be one of the requisites of a conductor to ppeak distinctly." re- marked a passenger-. "There is little use in a conductor calling out the streets if his passengers fail to understand him." "That is true," acquiesced the veteran, "but very otten a passenger .will accuse a condru tor of not having called his street when it has simply been his own fault, for in many cases he has been day-dreaming at the expense of the vigilant conductor."

Prof. Ludlum says that the water was back seven blocks in the main street of Man hattan. At the Citizens' bank it was sc swift that a boat could hardly be man aged there.

The river this morning reached a stage of ?,4.7 feet, a rise during the past L'4 hours of 1.2 feet and continues at about the same rate. All along the levee the water is up to the stores and houses, in some of them it being at least a foot and more deep ou the first poors. So far traffic on the ,. i river has not been greatly hindered, but when th" water reaches a stage of ;;t feet some of the boats will probably refuse to receive freight, as the approaches cannot be used and the water will he too deep f.ir teams to drive through. At the ferries the loading of teams is done with great difficulty, the horses having- to wade in up to their shoulders. The National stock yards at East St. Louis has notified the railroads that no more stock will be received until the water recedes. EF.ii srri:issTiTioNS. Bad Luck Sure to Follow If You Are Broke on Thursday. "However smart a man may be, how ever deep of brain, there is yet a trace of superstition in his makeup,-' said a thofifcfhtf til man, "and often i exists and controls him in various ways without his knowing anything about it. If you should tell him that he was supersti tious he would resent it, and in no un certain way. But all men are super stitious in some way fust the sanre. "There are little things about which men ate a bit cranky, and they devel op into well rounded .superstitions. There is Opie Reid, who has a queer little no tion that if he pets up Thursday morn ing without money in his pocket it s bad link, and he believes in it sc. rirmly that he will not venture out of the house, and will not turn his hand to ; piece of work if it happens to him. He is generally very careful to see that he lias something left over We.inesday night, a nest c?s. as the saying rocs. for Thursday morning-. Hut sometimes he forgets, and suddenly discovers that he is dead broke. That settles it. Not a step will he take from the bouse that morning-. Now. how is that for super stition?

June 6 The legislative council has unanimously adopted the customs convention, which was signed Mart-it 21. I M y iiJiiiiiS i,?, riff l'V.'S 3 JO ?" 5 ft Two conditions have been strikingly brought to the notice of the public by the flood, viz.. that "one touch of na- i ture makes the whole world kin" and j that the oldest settler for once has been nonplussed. I In a hundred ways the quotation has I been proven. People suddenly display i td a kinship that perhaps never exist ! ed before, or was only smouldering, and in the hour of danger it blazed forth. In some cases the situation only served to bring- to light remarkable attach ments. One case is that of Dr. H. C. Miner, the veteran physician of the North side. When the flood came he looked first to the safety of his horse and his dog. Escape was impossible. He took the horse and the dog to the second lloor of a two story house and stayed with them, refusing to be taken away in a boat and thereby desert his dumb friends. Dr. Miner has driven the horse for more than twenty years. Th horse can find his way over North Topeka t and the country north of the river on the darkest nights. The dog, an old nunter, nas oeen lame lor yeais ulil tor years ana years ne nas oeen a ra- mihar sight to the people ot tne Nortn side as he sat in the doctor's buggy guarding the property. Saturday- afternoon, when the flood was at its strength and communication with North Topeka. on Kansas ave nue, was by means of pontoon bridge and ferry, one of the living things that escaped was a mocking bird. A North side woman would not desert her song ster. The crowd on the south end of the pontoon bridge saw a policeman on the north end of the bridge making his way south and carrying something larg. As he got nearer the object could be discerned. It was a large bird cage, two feet wide, three feet long and two feet high. It looked empty. The policeman got nearer and in one corner of the (age could be seen a little, red bundle of feathers, not larger than a fi.-t. and a small fist at that. The crowd cheered th? policeman and the bird got its head out from under its wing ami looked around. It saw that safety had been reached. It straightened up. shook its feathers, began strutting up and down on the porch and wis as glad to see the crow d as any of the people who had come across. Another policeman made a rescue. H--was on the north end of the Melan bridge Thursday. A woman was put into the basket and sent across. She carried a bundle. It looked like a baby wrapped in a blanket and a quilt. The woman was clad in mighty thin cloth ing but the occupant of the bundle was well wrapped. The policeman took the bundle from the life basket, and with the woman following him he carried it to the Rock Island depot. There the woman took the bundle and was profuse in her thanks. She unwrapped the bun dle and out jumped a pug dog. The policeman was mad. "Ping a dog was a bad enough joke on me," he said, "but being a pug dog, that was an insult." Another woman who was sent across in the basket was fat. She was so heavy that she filled the basket like a load of hay. She carried nothing at all but when she reached a safe place on j the south side she stopped, dove into her pocket, cr in some part of her cloth ing and brought forth an Angora kit ten. Two colored men were coming across within K0 yards of each other Sunday. One carried" a big bull dog and the oth er carried a little kitten. A woman who rame across in a boat had a hen in a basket and another had a hen and sev eral chicks. There were hundreds of cases of people saving the animals they owned. The storv was told of a man near Tecumseh who had 4it pigs on a raft. The pigs wanted to bunch in one place. That would sink the raft. The man didn't play "jags in clover" but he played "pigs on a raff trying to keep them scattered so the raft would not be sunk. Another story is of a cow which was standing on a hay stack just out of water. If the cow ate the hay she would undermine her safe refuge and if she did not eat she would starve.

They were certain until they were driven to the second stories and since that they haven't said a word about the flood o '66 or'55 or '44. Some amusing things have happened. A North Topeka merchant, who was driven out by the flood, was looking for a colored man who worked for hint, He found him and asked him wdiere he was staying. "I am at de Auditorium," said the colored man as if he were speaking of the Auditorium hotel in Chicago. "Come over with me this afternoon and we will (dean up the store."

Unauthorized People 3ot Money Out of State Journals. During the past, few days, when com munication with the north side has been cut off the distribution of Topeka news papers has been extremely difficult. A few dozens were carried across by the hardy boatmen who made the passage but not enough to reach more than a scattering few in Shorey and at the Re form school. The State Journal has been annoyed to learn that unknown persons have taken advantage of the situation to reap small harvests by selling these papers at prices as high as 4." cents. For three days 25 cents was a common price. The State Journal sent these papers free at every opportunity and intended that they should reach as many of its pat rons as possible at the same price. The men who carried the papers received nothing for them or their irouole. Had it been a possibility thousands instead of hundreds of newspapers would have been sent across during the Hood. The Topeka State journal wishes it known that all papers sent to refugees on the north side ot the Kansas river during the past week nave uee.11 con tributed for their comfort, without com pensation or hope of it. Information as to the identity of the persons who re ceived money for such papers would be gladly received at tins cilice.

One of the compensations of poverty has been the belief that a scarcity of food and the absence of luxurious an t even of comforts promote long living, wliile untimely death is the common fate of those who can afford costly foods and drinks, soft beds and what ever a luxurious taste can suggest. Statistics have sustained this view. A. German statistician has gathered from the census returns of the various na.- tions figures which show that there arc: proportionately many more centena rians among the poor and uneducated than among people whose educational average is high and whose plane of living- is exalted. The .census returns have been accepted as accurate, or at anv rate, as the only source of official information. Sociologists, therefore, have drawn impressive lessons concern ing the rewards of involuntary virtue. No doubt many of those whose poverty compels plain living would be glad to accept a shorter span of life, with bet ter opportunities for enjoyment, in lieu of a century of hunger and hardship; but having- no choice in the matter they are disposed to boast of their longevity. Very recent social statistics of Eng land show, at least, that a long lite is not incompatible with riches. Of 205 persons in that country who, in dying this year, left each an estate valued at more than 5O0,n0O, six were over ft'.i vears old. fifty were over SO years, and the--averase was 73 years. This is far above the average of an equal number of pixrr people taken haphazard. It is explained that a considerable propor tion of these long-lived rich men in herited their wealth and had lived from infancy to death itr luxurious circum stances. As far as known not one of the group had the alleged benefits of a meager dietary, a hard bed and the constant anxiety about the immediate future which is common to the centen arians who close their days of destitu tion in the almshouse. Perhaps the late Prof. Owen's investi gations and conclusions offer the true explanation of the seominrr inconsist ency of the statistics. He found that in no sinsle case was there any docu mentary proof as to the real age of the pauper centenarian and be inferred that; most of the very aged among the per manently destitute are without any ac curate knowledge of their ages; that sometimes in ignorance and sometimes in order to become the center of uti- I usual attention the uneducated pocr j rrive to the census taker ag s which lit? I has po means, to verify. Perhaps tlv? j rich do eat too much and meet too few I hardships, but this is probably less dan i gerous to life than is continued half 1 starvation and exposure. Philadelphia liecord. A GOOD LAI Gil. Women Seldom Have One, Being Con tented With Giggles. Women do not laugh so much as men. says the Youth's Companion. They are sometimes believed to lie less richly en dowed than men with a sense of humor, but, true or not. that is not a full ex planation. Many humorous, even witty, women hardly get beyond a smile. The giggle and the titter are not laughter .it ail. merely a kind of makoheiieve, sug gestive of sawdust and shavings. It will be a pity if r ivilization ban ishes from the gcritle sex that wbole. sorne lautrh which still doeth gorxl like a medicine. More than one domestic crisis might be alleviated or averted by laughter. The housemother who dropped a dish of notat.es on their way to he kettle, so that they landed in deep pan of doiif,;h rising beside the stove, and who then sat clown and laughed till sli" cried at the tunny, helpless air of the half-buried potatoes, had a potent charm against discourage ment. To laurrh at the blunder of the gi-eer. green ' mat- maid who. being told to turn tne tress every day. made the bed tirs turne.l the mattress afterward, is to forget the annoyance of the moment in the sense of its absurdity. Beugptr is a kind of magician, o?. better still, a fairy. In fact, Mr. P.arrie has a novel scientific explanation of the origin of fairies in his "The Little White Bird.' He says: "When the first baby laughed for the fir-t time his laugh broke into a mil lion pieces and they all went skipping about. That was the beginning of fairies." Kv.rybody knows? that the fairies are the best "mother's helpers" and houe- rkers in the world, and that no well-. egulated family can afford to be with out them. Perhaps they wer born of '.ne laughter of grown-up folk as weh as of that of babies. In that case th scarcity of fairies nowadays may bt traeed to the infrequeney of the lauga of the overserious woman. The Cedric Gets Away. Liverpool.
