The Record-Herald today says: More than 1,500,000 tons of steel rails have been ordered by the railroads for delivery in 1307, and within a short time, it is said, orders for as many more tons will be placed with the vari ous mills. The total capacity of the tteel mills for a year is about three million tons, so all of them are assured their capacity orders for 1907. Never before, it is stated, have so many orders for rails been placed by the railroads at this season.

A mathematician on the Wichita Beacon got busy the other day with these results: If the postage stamps sold at the Wichita postoffice in a year, figuring on the rate of sales for the first fif teen days in the month of October, 1906, as a basis for the year's sales, were placed end to end, they would make a band of paper thirteen-six-teenths of an inch wide that would extend along all the street car lines in the city, run to Winfield and return to Main street and Douglas avenue, go to Fairmount college and back, and follow six miles of Wichita streets and reach to the office of The Beacon be fore the last stamp was used. If these stamps were again gath ered and placed side by side so as to make one s;heet of paper, 2229 Bea cons of ten pages each, could be cut from it. The size of a postage stamp, special delivery not included, is about thir-teen-sixtet nths by f ourteen-sixteenths of an inch. The Wichita post office sells annually 1.680,000 one-cent stamps. If these stamps were placed end to end they would reach 23 H miles. The 2-cent denominations would extend 61 miles. The 1-cent and 2 cent stamps are the denominations mostly used by the public. The next best sellers are the 4-cent and 5-eent I Issues. The following Is a list showing I the stamps to be sold the coming year, obtained by multiplying the 1 stamps sold the first fifteen days In October hv 24; 1-cent, 1,680.000; 2- cent. 4.440,000; 3-cent, 19.200; 4-cent. 108.000: 5-cent, 57,600: 6-cent. 12,000; 10-cent, 2S.800; 10-cent special 12.000; 15-cent. 2.40, making a total of 6,363,- 000 stamps.

George Herring, the noted English philanthropist, who In the course of his life contributed large sums of money to hospitals and chari table enterprises, died today alter an opeiation for appendicitis. He made his first money on the race courses and sub sequently became identified with a large number of business enterprises. George Herring was chairman of the city of London Electric Lighting com pany, Blectrlc and General Investment company, Municipal Trust company and several mining companies. In Decem ber last he donated $500,000 to the Sal vation Army for use in a home coloni zation scheme, the army engaging to pay this sum in 25 annual installments, to the King's hospital fund. The plan was to purchase tracts of land in Eng land, giving fjve acres or thereabouts to each settler, building cottages, provid ing seed and implements and support ing the settlers until the lands became productive. Each settler was to repay the army in installments. In this man ner the Salvation Army hoped to pro vide for those who for various reasons were unable to leave England under the 1 emigration schemes of the army. Mr. Herring conducted a soup kitchen I in Camdentown, London, -built and en j dowed an institution known as the Haven of Rest for gentle folk brought to poverty through genuine misfortune, and furnished a number of Salvation Army shelters for the homeless.

PICKS HEARST AND MOHAN. Tom Lawson Gives Out a Forecast on the Election. New York, Nov. 2. Thomas W. Law son has sent out a circular giving it as his opinion that Hearst will be over whelmingly elected. Reports agree, says Lawson, that, barring a miracle, Hearst must win because Tammany will really give the word election morning to its hodes of thugs; "Elect hm at any cost." This will mean that Hearst will have all the benefit of the u.ack jacking which last year was against him. "I believe Moran will be elected in Massachusetts," he aiso says.
