RAPID TRANSIT SCHEMES.
Some Hundreds of Millions of Dollars Spent to Save Twenty Minutes. Tunnels and Bridges Are Proposed That Almost Take Away One's Breath. Brought Bask From the Other World Agaln a Woman's Hotel-Interesting New York Gossip. New Yoit, May 13.-The, number and enormous size of the transit schemes now proposed in New York are almost appalling when viewed in the aggregate. The elevated railway companies of the two cities propose to unite their lines by two additional bridges over the East river whidh would cost $24.000,000. One of these will almost certainly be soon begun. Another bridge is proposed to run from New York to Long Island City across Blackwell's island, at a cost of several millions. A company is incorporated to tunnel un der the East river at Grand street. The scheme is to let the cars slide down the slope on one side with sufficient force to carry them nearly up the slope on the other. A tunnel is proposed by Austin Corbin and his associates to run under the East river from the Battery. This would be only the first step in the construction of a complete system of underground routes through the whole city and costing someting like a hundred millions A bridge and a tunnel are proposed by rival corporation to cross the Narrows. A huge suspension bridge for western rail roads is proposed for the Hudson. It would have a span about 2,600 feet long and wide enough for four railroad track, and would cost some $30,000,000. There is every prospect of a speedy beginning of the work. Another H dson river bridge is proposed, but probably only as a dog in the manger affair, never to be built. The Hudson river tunnel is about two-thirds finished and a small force of men, about a hundred, I be lieve, are digging away at the Jersey head ing, The company has been reoranized with British capital and a couple of airs are bossing the engineering work. The rapid transit schemes are as numer ous as flies will be next month. Jay Gould wishes and will probably obtain permission to put a third track on his elevated lines. The old arcade zailroad plan is not dead yet by any means, and really it is a beautiful scheme which is only objectionable because everybody on Broadway seems to be opposed to it and belcause t would cost almost un counted millions. The great People's rail road project for a high elevated railroad to run on the tops of the houses, through block centers, eleven miles north from the Battery, and on the surface nineteen miles further, with two tracks for way and two for express trains, would cost another hun dred million or more. The line for the route has been surveyed, but work has not been began. These which have been named are all schemes of some standing in the financial world. There are many others more chli merical. Putting all together-those which are prophetic of future accomplishment with those which will never be carried out, probably a sum as great as the national debt at its greatest is represented by the expense estimates of the plans proposed to bring New York business men twenty min utes nearer to their dinners. Brought Ilack From Death. Snoh accidents as that which terminated the life of the IRev. Dr. Bothwell, of Brook lyn, are by no means so uncommon as might be supposed. Not long ago a little girl away up in Northern New York inhaled a bean, which lodged in a bronchial tube, precisely as did the cork in the case of Dr. Bothwell. Her parents, who are very wealthy, telegtaphod to New York and a specialist was sent up. lie brought the girl to a hospital heir, her parents accompanying her. l:The child had paroxysems, duling which she was scarcely able to breathe at all, but between theimt was comparatively comfortable, though certain to die in time if not relieved. A physician sat by her with instructions to petform tracheotomy at the first symptom of the approach of a pa roxystm. A' cartiage stood in wailing to convey to the spot sev eral assisltants when needed. The choking fit came, the carriage set off at a gallop for the assistants, the operating surgeon laid the child upon the table and administered ether. An opening was then Iade in the windpipe from the front of the neck and a long, rather flexible rubber tube procured and thrust down the bronchus to the point where the bean lay lodged. Press ing the end of the tube anainst the bean the surgeon sucked at the other end until the bean, much swollen and somewhat softened by the interior moisture of the lunas, was drawn into it. Then he slowly raised the tube. Just as it Wvas withdrawn the bean fell back into the orifice, but a vi olent lit of coughing ejected it again in two pieces. 'lhen the child lay breathless and apparently dying. The child's parents had witnessed the en tire operation. At this juncture the father's face turned ghastly pale and the mother shrieked, "My child is dead!" But she wasn't. The doctors induced artificial respiration and sewed up the wound, and it wasn't so very long before the mother was kneeling on the floor with hands upheld to heaven and tears of gratitude streaming down her cheeks. There are times when it is grand to be a doctor. Again a Woman's Hotel. And so the experiment of a woman's hotel is again to be tried in New York under auspices more promising than when A. T. Stows; t courted failure in a similar en deavor. Stewart's woman's hotel failed for a0O reasons, tore or less. Some of these were that the prices were not low, that the rules were oppressive and meddlesome, that the lights were turned out at a fixed hour, as in a barrack or prison, that pianos and sewing machines were tabooeut, that the dining room was dreary and the meals not abund ant, that Hut enough of that. Mrc. ('andaeo Wheeler and Mrs. Eliza beth Custer are the promoters of the new enterprise. They are prominent in the attistic and literary professionals re spectively, they can command capital, though themselves not wealthy, and they know what wotmeu want, which is most im portant of all. MAs. Wheeler, who has been longest can vassing the ilan, is an expert on interior decorations. It is her idea to make the rooms as pretty and homelike as possible at comparatively slibht expense, and both ladies agree that the nlutost attainable com fort at a mode atoi price is likely to be more welcome to the majority of the women wanting quarters than a very cheap hash hlouse with qluartcra crotlesponding. And there are to be no rules. I)ti you hear, Indles, no rules at atill to speak of. You anu bring a pinno, a parrot, ia srwing machine und a typewriter and still bie welcome. Wherefore tll womankind will wish the hriect well. Any taint of eleemosynary intention would kill the project with uncnompromis ing rapidity, but there is to be nothting of that sort. Thle hotel is expected to pay expenses and a dividend besides, it possible. rhillp G(. flunt.

To write half the day and work out of doors the other half seems to him the ideal way of spending the open weather. Ilis house is as original as him self. One big room, thirty-five feet I,v thirty, is about all there is of it down stair. In that room, which serves for all purposes except a kitchen, are a piano, books, music, pictures arind a great fireplace, six feet wide, to feed whose ravenous maw he goes out in his boat at frequent intervals, accompanied by his entire family, to gather drift wood and pine knots. Mr. Hubert thinks this kind of life is bet ter for him and his children than living in the city, and I entirely agree with him. But too few of us have the courage to try such experiments. The Vanished Talmagean Whiskers. Upon a Brooklyn street ear the other day a couple of young women began talking about Dr. Talmage. Not his sermon, of course, nor his splendid new church, but the vanished glory of his whiskers. "Have you seen him since he shaved them off?" asked one. "No, have you?" "Yes, I have," replied the first, "aud he does look so funny I can hardly hoelp laugh ing when I look at him. He doesn't look like Dr. Talmage at all. Indeed. 1 hardly think I would regounize him if I should-" A titter ran about the car and away up in the front end the speaker, whose tones were unnecessarily loud, perhaps, caught sight of a fat man with a black coat, upon the shaven expanse of whose counltenancee a jolly smile was resting. She hastily sig naled the conductor and the pair got off to wait for the next car. Dr. Talmage has had a good many amus ing experiences since he lost his facial adornments but he gets some enjoyment out of them himself and doesn't begrudge as much to otheis. The Decline of Memory. Marvelous stories are told of James G. lilaine's power of memorizing facts, faces and dates, and there are others who can carry in their heads the most complex and long-winded affairs. But they are rare ex ceptions. Most busy men find that they lose all recollection of their affairs, that as they grow more busy their memory fails them and they live, move and have their be ing in the constant guidance of a memor andum book. Chauncey M. Depew isn't the only mann who keeps a collection of funny stories in a scrap book. I know a young man whose business it is, among other things, to walk along the shop. ing streets and take iaccurate note of tirhe novelties that other houses in his line are displaying. Usually he finds that he can remember all the details that Ie cares to without taking a note, but when business is brisk and he has it great many other things on his mind he has to haul out his mern'or andum book at frequent intervals or he would forget everything. The mimoran durn book Is taking thi ploce of tihe diary, that confidant of more leisurely times. History and literature will sutler from the substitution.

An hour afterward the contract was satned. As the salesman's commission on the or der amounted to a good many thousands of dollars he could afford to pay for the din ners. The Son of His Father. A youngster in whose doings Wall street takes a keen interest is Eddie Gould, as he is usually called. He is a heavy faced, black bearded, sullen looking young man, who is distinctly less in his millionaire father's good graces than the eldest son, George, and no wonder, since Eddie has more than once been seen openly selling se curities that the old man was trying to bull. This incident might have sug gested the stock broking scenes in "l'ue Henrietta," but probably didn't. Wall street life ages a man very rapidly. Eddie Gould looks now like a middle-aged man, but it is only live years since I saw him, a mere stripling then, taking part in a canoe race on the Hudson and laughing as gleefully as any one when he got tipped into the chilly water in a paddling race. Jesse Soeliguan's Wish. Jesse Seligman, the banker, is a man of very quiet and unostentatious tastes, and as sensible as he is wealthy. I saw him once at a Hebrew ball gazing with amused inter est at a couple of dancers on the floor. 'lhey were radiant in raiment more costly.fjaan the purple and the linen wherewith Solo mon was arrayed, and on the neck of the woman and in the shirt front of the man gleaned diamonds which must, if genuine, have cost a big seun. Mr. Seligman could hardly have been the only observer of the pair, but as they left the floor to go to the refreshment room 1 heard him say to a companion, with a twinkle in his eye that belied his solemn tone, "I wish I could afford to buy such dia monds as those." A Hlelated Weddiug Tour. I know a young man who, upon his mar rises m little over a year ago, took no wed ding tour because lie was afraid of making a guy and a sight to behold on the oars and in the hotels after the sweet and artless manner of the newly wedded. He has just taken his wedding tour this spring, and as he ca.riid a fine baby with him to which perforce most attention must be directed, no one is in dnnger of suspecting that it is really his wedding tour.
