Tho Ways nnd Means Committee reported the Income Tax Internal Revenue till) to the Home yesterday, by a. vote of nine to seven, and tho House received It after a little filibustering, In which Representative Bourke Cockran took n hand. The Senate showed a disposition to dispose of tho stupid, senseless Hawaiian busi ness by favorably reporting Senator Turple's resolution, washing our hnrvln of the mntler, declaring that the Pro visional Government should pursue Its own line of policy, nnd that foreign Intervention In the political affairs of the Islnnds would be regarded ns mi net unfriendly to the JJnltod Slates. The Incomo Tax bill, If subjected to proper amendment and adjustment, will relievo the Government from ull embar rassment nnd put taxation on those who can best bear the burden, nnd who are now In great measure (successful tax dodgers. The Hawaiian resolution, If ndopled, will leave the unworthy attempt of the last Administration to steal Hawaii ns n mennH of obtaining a few millions through the sugar bounty to history, will posh over the highly moral but very ridiculous effort of tho present Admin istration to restore the colored Queen to her overturned throne, nnd will show that our policy with regard to other nations Is "hands off" nnd "no Inter ference with the political affairs of the islands." Moreover the adoption of the resolu tion will effectually bottle up Boutelle. THE BPEEDWAT MUDDLE. Pork Commissioners Clausen and fltruus not only continue their obstinate opposition to the river sidewalk at the Harlem Speedway, but supplement their defiance or popular sentiment by turn ing a meeting or the Park Board Into a scene more befitting a debate at a barroom tree and easy club than the de liberations ot a. municipal commission. It could not have been a very edirying Btudy for the outsiders to hear one Com missioner assailing a colleague for ab senting himself fioni the Board meet ings and accusing the landscape architect of favoritism In his official acts, while unothcr Commissioner was engaging In a controversy with a contractor and of fering to bet him Ave thousand dollars that his bid was fifty thousand dollars wide of thp mark. By persisting in opening the bids berore the Corporation Counsel had decided whether the delay does or does not vitiate the whole proceeding, nnd In the face or the reservation by the Comp troller or all rights he might have in the matter, they have further complicated the work and probably laid the founda tion for a vexatious and costly litigation. Commissioner Dana entcted a formal protest ugalnst the opening of the bids on the ground that tho failure to Insert In the contract a provision for the pay ment for the Improvement by instal ments prevented any but large con tractors from bidding and was Injurious to the Interests or the city. This view was concurred In by one of the most reputable of the contractors. Is It not time for the Legislature to take some action In relation to the speedway that will protect the public Interests against the vagaries of incapa ble officials? CLOTURE IN THE BENATE. The Republican Senate ut Albany has adopted a cloture rule by a majorlt) of four. The Democrats ull opposed tho rule and Scnutor Bradley, Independent, voted with them. But they made no factious and obstructive opposition, al though they might have brought on a protracted stiuggle. The Democratic Senate nt Washington proposes a cloture rule and the Republi cans oppose It. Will the lnttcr show as much gruce ns the Democratic Senators ut Albany have displayed, and surfer the rule to be adopted after giving proper evidence of the position they occupy, without factious delay? Will the Demo cratic United States' Scnatois display as much unanimity nnd firmness as the Republican State Senators have shown In pushing the rule through to success? It Is proper that the absurdity of a minority or one branch of a legislative body blocking legislation favored by n majority of both brunches should be swept away. Yet the power lolled In the minority of the Senate nt Washing ton nnd the Senate nt Albany has some times bren or gieut service to the public Interests. Two notable cases are the defeat of the Infamous Force bill In tho I'nlted States Senate nnd the killing In 1K7, In the State Senate, after one of the longest continuous sessions on record, of the notorious lobby Bcheme to beUe and confiscate the property of Trinity Church. THE COLD WAVE. Our weather prophets have won an other feather to stick In their caps The fog came yesterday, and the cold Is here to-day. Vlsters anil mufflers are In demand Yet, as usuul, New Yoik Is belter off than other cities where It is reported that the "wave" is doing much duinagc. In Chicago and Qulncv the cold Is said to bo so 8Pcre that people have been frozen to death In the streets It Is to be hoped the weather here will not add to the sufferings of the poor. But It Is a good time to redouble the efforts for relief, .and a good time to glse an Impetus to "Tl-e World's" Free Bread Fund. Hunger and frost do not go well together, and bread will be a welcome accompaniment of coal If the wintry spell Is to continue. CIVITAS8IH0 IS PLATED OUT. The Clvltas Club, of Brooklyn, Is com posed of Bronkln gills most of them young and pietty. These girls are doing all they can to purify municipal politics. They suy they hope to accomplish this by exerting an Influence on the best clement ot Brooklyn manhood. Tho Chl-nsscrs had their second meet ing yesterday and listened to remarks by a pair or Brooklyn statesmen. They learned some politics during the enter tainment. One or the speakers told them how to vote and also what the city offi cials did for a living after they were elected. The Civltassers' beaming eyes and sea-shell tinted cars were all atten tion, and eyery last one ot them seemed to be edified to the verge of Ineffablllty. The Club appears to be all right The girls use the correct bran,d of chewing gum, cut nngel cake recipes out of the I newspapers Just Ilka other girls, ud cm I ench othcr'n bangs In beautiful style, but we don't see what they want to make Civltassers out of themselves for. Clvltas was a snorting old nulsuncc, and there was grtnt rejoicing when he died. He wrote ton mti'-h for fho papers, and made pcopl" dislike him. If thnsf Biooklyn belles nre going to revive ClvlUissIng, anil expect thereby to purify politics, heaven help the rest ot us. After a while t.cx IMo ami Pio Bonn Publico and Veritas and tho rest of the gang will rise up from tholr com ments nnd lake to purifying things ngaln au they were wont to do In ilas of old. Go slow on this Clvltas business, star roreheaded nymphs of Brookljn. The pnpers don't give rcformerr with Ink bottles as much show ns they hnd for merly, ir the original Clvltas were alive to-day he might write on both sides of the iiaiier and cross-patch his ihlregiaphy In forty directions, and iven use large quantities of -red Ink In Inditing his re marks, but his shriek for freedom nnd elp for Justice would not stand the ghost of a chance to gel Into print while thcie was a three-column prize-fight and a four-column double murder waiting to be put In l pe. "LA MEGERE APPRIVOISEE." A curious version of Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew" was dished up lost night at Abbey's Theatre by the Coquelln - Hading Company under the title of "I.n Megcrc Apprlvolsee." The manipulator or the work was Paul Delalr. whose name appears on the pro gramme, while that of Shakespeare Is happily absent. This will remind us so much of the way In which we tipat the works or rorelgn authors that the sen sation will be an Instructive one. The French programme, however, ndmlts that Paul Delalr merely adapted "The Taming or the Shrew." We never stick at a little thing like that. Our adapter becomes the absolute anther, having "made such n sinner ot his memory us to credit his own lie." "La Megero Apprlvolsee," however, Is not Shakespeare. Delalr has made a four-act comedy destined to please the French, and he has used Shakespeare's Idea of a shrewish maiden subjected to the Indomitable will of a determined husbund. The play Is neatly urrnnged, modern In Its language and quite Inter esting. M. Delalr ennnot Imagine thut Shakespeare's long-lived popularity In his own country has been due to the In genuity of his plots. Yet the French man has made no attempt to translate Shakespeare's Ideas Into French. He has Just taken the plat and expressed It In his own way. It was a dangerous thing to do. We might howl, we might grow furiously Indignant, wp might speak of Irreverence, undue tampering, and so on, but er we won't We have done so much or that kind of thing our selves. Paul D'elalr has simply taught ua, to see ourselves as others spo us. Mme. Hading was a very tempestuous shrew. In fact, It Is difficult to under stand what her Idea of a shrew Is. She stormed and ranted, and behaved like a raving maniac. In the first acl a strait-Jacket seemed almost necessary to curb her Impetuosity. Such a Kath erlna was far fiom Shakespeare's Inten tion. Mme. Hadlng's work, however, was consistent, and If she was ridiculous hi the fli-st act, she was ridiculous through out the play. Coquelln was a suave, courteous and entertaining Petrucclo. The English bru tality of the part was modified slightly to fit the French Idea ot rnllantry and chivalry towards women. "The Taming of the Shrew" Is not n play thut can be relished to-day. The Petrucclo of Shakes peare's time was a premonitory symptom of tho gentlemen who bents his wife, and of whose sad case we may read each day in the annals or the Bow Street Police Court. Yet we still tolerate the premonitory symptom, though we despise the wire-beater. The French ndaptcrhas tried to sorten Pctrucclo's character, ror It Is one that Is not understood In France. "l.e Megero Apprlvolsee" was neatly staged, but the C'oquelln-Hadlng people are more acceptable In ether plays of their repertoire, ALAN' DA1.K. DISPENSARY LAW RIOT.

A body of 500 citizens pro ceeded to the lodging-house where tho splea boarded, with the Intention of lynching them. The police, however, got wind of (he affulr, and the spies got out of the way. There was a ftHlIado of pistol-shots and much excitement. Wallte ltollancedti was wounded In the neck, but not fitful ly, and the crowd then slowly dis persed, after finding that the spies were not at home.

Three Thousand Cases Are Now Awaiting Trial. Some Courts in Srslou Only Twice a Week. What nti; flic rlvll rourt.t of New York cloliiK for thu poor? , In tlic!fj thni'H, tthni work nnd broiid nre cenrec nmoiiK the laborlns clawed, there should li no delay or neglect In the civil Justice courts, where poor llt iK.itits Sfck redress nnd whHt Is due them from Individuals and corporations. The cMl Justice courts of New Yoik and there nre no less than eleven of them nre the legal refuges of the poorer class of citizens, in these courts lahoiera and servants hrlng suits and actions for money due them from em ployers. Here Is where the landlords of (lothnm and the owjiers of bis tene ments take legal nctlon to eject tenants who have not paid their rent. In these courts nil the petty business contro versies of citizens are legally nrbltratad or adjusted. It Is Important, therefore, In theo hard times, that the civil Justice courts render prompt nnd efficient service, nnd that, litigants be not compelled to nwnlt the cotneiilence of Judges, clerks, mar shals and other court employees. There should be no delays or postpone ments and no dockets overloaded with untried cases. This Winter, of all others, tho poor litigants should be promptly served by the legal servants who draw fat salaries from the city treasury. As already stated there are In the city of New York eleven civil Justice courts, the Judges of which and the locations of which are as follows; Klrst District Civil Court, corner of Chambers nnd Centre streets Judge Wauliopc Lynn; salary, W.000. Second District Civil Court, Centre Market Judge Herman Uolte; salary, ifi (ton 'I hlrd District Civil Court, 125 Sixth avenue Judge William V. Moore; salary. ;s,uoo.

Eleventh District Civil Court, 919 Eighth avenue Judge Jumes A. O'Gorman; sal ury, $0,000. As thu salary of each of these Judges Is $0,000 per year, the total amount ex pended annually for the eleven courts Is $66,000. Civil court Justices hold office for six years, the total salary for each official being; $30,000 for the six. years of his term. The Bnlarles of the clerks and other office employees equal the salaries r tho Judges, thus mnltlng the nnnual cost to the city of New York for the eleven courts about $132,000. of $7!2,0O0 for the Judicial term of six years. These figures nre given In tills particu lar instance solely to show what the people do for the courts, and the ques tion then arises what do the courts do for the people? How are they conducted? Ale Judges and clerks doing their duty and acting promptly In these troubled times? For the past two weeks a reporter for "The Evening World" has been n daily visitor nt the eleven courts of this city. Every one of the eleven courts has been thoiouwliJy Investigated and the condi tion of afTnlrs accurately ascertained. in the eleven courts there ure pending at the present time nearly 3,000 actions, which Is au average of 270 cases to each of the eleven courts. Manv of these cases have been postponed for the con venience of attorneys, or owing to wit nesses belnir absent, hut the truth t,nt,i.i he known that some of these cases have been delayed and trials postponed by the negligence of the Judges themselves, who have been absent from court attending to their private business Instead of slt t ng in court to do the work for which thev receive a salary of $6,000 per vcar. Out of the eleven civil courts theVe Is not one which holds n trial session on Wednesday, and there is only on court In hesslon on Saturday. On Monday and Thursday five out of the eleven courts are In session; on Tuesday seven are In session, and on Friday nine. Two out of tho eleven civil Judges hold court four days each week. In tho remaining seven courts the Judges hold court but twice a week. As court usunlly convenes from 10 prlocli until 2 the Judge only sits Upon his bench four hours each dav. In seven of theso civil courts the Judges, there fore, hold court Just about eight hours each week, for which they receive n salary of $123. This Is at the rate of $15 an hour for services rendered Theie have been Instances known with in the past few months where civil court Judges remained awav from court for ten clays to devote their time and talents to defending clients in the Superior Court, for It must be remembered that these Judges of tha civil courts nre nearly nil of them practising attorneys-at-Uw, with offices downtown. Judge Ljnn, for Instance, has a law office at 280 llroadwny: Judge Qoldfogle has an olllce nt 261 Ilroadway; Judge Mooro at 37 Wall street; Judge noosch at 2S0 Ilroawday: Judge Tallon at 152 Nassau Mreet; Judge McCren at 51 Chambers Mreet, and Judge O'Gorman at 20ii llroadwny. Judge MeKeon Is a lawyer at 25 Chambers street, and also a dealer in leal estate at 1589 Third ave nue. While some of the legal gentlemen who are favored by fortune and lloss Croker with $6,000 tiidlclal ixultlons. sre attending to their private budnets and holding court but twice a week, there ate nearly 3,000 untried civil cases on their court dockets, and many poor peo ple are Inconvenienced by tha neglect of these public sen-ants, who are paid salaries sufllclently large to enable ttiem to devote nil of their time to their offi cial duties. "The Evening World" proposes to tell iuft how much time each of these eleven Justices devotes to hl private law p.nctlce and how much to the work for which tho taipaeis pay him a salary. Tho facts gathered In this two weeks' Investigation will be of great Interest to the public. AID FOR PFANNERER. Hut the Youub Bhneinnlicr linn ot Yrt fieouretl Work, Norbert Pfannercr, the young shoe maker, of 30! East Seventy-first street, whose pitiful condition was told In " The Evening World," Tuesday, has not yet been able to procure work. Ha has, however, received some practical assist ance from neighbors, and a contribution of $1 from "II. I V." through "The Evenlns World." which was turned over to him last night. ' I'fannerer's wife la Buffering from consumption, and hla three small chil dren are In poor health aa a result of hunger. He declares that he doea jiot want to be an object ot charity, but only wants ha opportunity to provide for hla aufterLna family, tie Is an lnitiUjeflt, man, sober and Industrious, and his ac quaintances recommend him as a good mechanic. DRIVEN FROM HOME. A Iloy't Pitiful fifory of Ills Father's Cruelly. Wolf 1'atchcr, a half-clad flftren-year-nld hoy, of 107 I'nlon uvenuc, Brooklyn, In the Harlem Police Court this morn ing, told the Judge that he left his home yesterday morning to look for work. Ills father, who has a family of eight children, warned him that If he did not find woik he should not dare to conio home. The boy looked In vnln for something to do yesterday, and nt 0 o'clock, weary and hungry, he returned home, only to be ilrlM'ii nwiiy hv his father. Tin' boy walked across the bridge and started for Hal 1cm. . At midnight he went Into the Elghty I eighth street police station, his ragged clothes dripping wet, and nsked for a night's lodging. He told Agent Mnore, of the Gerry Society, this morning thnt his father had not worked for live months. His older brother, who Is seventeen. Is the only one of the family who Is earn ing anything, and lie, too, says the boy, has been driven from his home when he had no work. The boy was commltteJl to the Gerry Society pending un Investigation. HUSBAND, NOT WIFE INSANE. .Incol) Wnllers IIus Ills Wife Ex amined with Disastrous Itosults. Jacob Walker, a tailor, thirty-seven, of 3S3 First avenue, was committed to the Insane pavilion ut Uellevue Hospital this morning by Justice Koch, on complnlnt of his wife, Mary. Wnlters Is big nnd powerful. When placed under nrrest early this morning by Court Officer Hartlgan, lie threatened to break him In two If he dared to lay a hand on hlni. Hartlgan Is a slightly bull! man. but full of grit. He at once seined bold of Walters, who then twisted himself out ot his coat nnd fled along Twenty-third street towards Uie East ltlver. Hartlgan whistled and gave chase. His "call" was heard by Policeman Uurke of the East Twenty-second street station, who was coming westward on a crosB town car, Uurke headed oft the lunatic, whom he saw coming along at u break neck speed, nnd making for the river, as though he intended to seek refuge there. The two officers had all they could do to manage Walters, who fought the en tire way to court. He was removed to Uellevue in a strait-Jacket. Walters has not been right In his mind for some weeks, but it was only since Tuesday that he became violent. Early Tuesday morning he called on Cant. Gallncher. of the Fust Twentv-sec- ond street station, and ordered him to arrest his wife, saying: "She's crazy, and if she remains with me much longer she'll drive me crazy." Tbo Captain advised him to have u doctor to examine his wife first, and If he declared her Insane he would have no further trouble to have her put Into an Institution. Walters accordingly secured Dr. Rlch ter, of East Ninth street, who on ex amining the wife, declared her perfectly sane, and told Walters that 41 Was he who ought to be sent to the lunatic asy lum. Walters drove the doctor out of the house, nnd then became perfectly frantic. He broke furniture and crockery ware, threw clothing out of the window, liberated three canary birds, two poll parrots and a crow, und then turned on his wife and gave her u beating. That afternoon Mrs. Wallers secured the warrant for her husband's nrrest on the ground that her life was In danger. - VACCINATORS KEPT BUSY. Small-Pox Hreuks Out In Five Different Localities. The Health Department vaccinators and fumlgators retired from a long night's work early this morning. Short ly after 6 o'clock yesterday five canes of small-pox were reported from as many different sections of the city, and squads of physicians nnd attendants were hus tled out to gather the patients In and take Immediate measures to prevent the Infection from more widely spreading. The patients sent to North Ilrother Islnnd were: Edward Kollecker, two yeurs old, of 2127 Second nvenue; Frank Hellly, thirty-five jeurs, 241 East Eighty-first street: William Smith, twenty-one, of 135 Cannon street, who wus taken 111 with the disease nt a dis pensary, 32D East Third street: John Noblet, twenty-six years, of 80 Morton street; Lena Itostcr, twenty-eight years, of 164 Forsyth street. The tenants In each one of the above houses were vacclnuted last night, and also those of the adjoining tenements, before the health Inspectors left them, nnd the apartments were subjected to a ttinrouah fornication. No fresh cases of smnll-pox were re ported last night from either Wnrd's or Illackwell'H Island. It Is expected, however, that more evidence of the mal ady will be seen within tho next few davs. Within ten days the Health Depart ment will test the alleged red glass cure for small-pox. The experiments will take place In a pavilion on North nrother Island, the windows of which are being set with red glass for the pur pose. The lamps in the pavilion will be supplied with chimneys of the same red glass. The latter are being made to order in a New Jersey factor-, as noth ing of the kind can he found In stock in this cltv. The nlleged cure is of German origin. It is said that certain rnyB of the sun when fnlllng upon patients diseased with smnll-pox have n tendency to Irritate the skin nnd retard recovery. The red glass, It Is nlleged, neutralizes these rnys. President Wilson and Dr. Doty, the Chief Inspector of the Ilureau of Con tagious Diseases, entertain but little faith In tho "red glass cure."

To th Kdltor You are wasting a good deal ot epace under the heading of "Letters' hlch could be put to a better use. 1 find that It tales months and months before some of our readers get tired of discussing the questions or "Whether a man should get mar ried on a salary of $8 or not?" or "Whether a gentleman ought to get up and offer hla seat to a lady In an nictated train or surfsce car?" Now, I think these two questions are easily to be settled; the former one by tsosertng with no, and the second ona by saying that a gentleman will always be a gentleman even when In a public car. Hating this settled, at least to my satisfaction, I would like to ask you whether It would not be better for your nany readers to discuss more sensible questions views on the tariff, municipal government, or other subjects which woutd be Instructive', more uwful end less foolish than the ones at present so eagerly dis cussed.

To the Editor: In reply to "Agnes's" Inquiry as to what to do to keep her husband horns evenings, I beg to offer a few suggestions. In the first place, l would be well to have a bright smile on your face when be reaches home. If there la anything nil) drive a husband out evenings. It la to see his fe sit around moping. Second, after the evening meal, strike up some humorous discourse, and If ou still see your husband casting longing glances toaards hit hat and coat, try to amuse blm with mme Innocent game, such aa bean -bag or parches! If that doesn't bring the desired result, then resort to violent measures, auch as tying his arms or eta t! on I n a pollcbman at the door. When I first married, my huabajad was very fond of straying from home evenings, but by pursuing the above methods I gradually overcame hie rambling pro pensities, and It would be hard now to find a more "stay-at-home' family In Brooklyn. Mrs SKIMMERHOHX. The nirlat That Make the Trouble. To tbt Editor: Twenty per cent, of the young ladles who, through paternal Influence or otherwise, hold positions, work merely as a pis time or to avoid home duties. Now, if this 20 per cent would relinquish these positions In favor of their more unfortunate sisters, It would keep woman within her own sphere, and not drive men out of employment, there would be 20 per cent, more positions for men and 20 per cent, more chances for the girl In the matrimonial market. In con clusion, let it be said that a young man la these days expects something else from a woman be sides being able to write stenogrsphy and fry steak and onions. MICHAEL GROSS What Aie the lloniea Like? To the Editor: I hsv read with much Interest "Elsie's" letter. In which she state that where she lives ry nice seven, eight and ten room bouses may be bad for $8, $10 and 111 per month, or a aiz-room house can be built by paying 112 a month. Have thoe bouses. Improvements, furnaces, tubs, baths, tic? On hat sized lots do they stand? Is there a good train service to New York, and are Uiey within a reasonable diatance from the depot? Should "Elsie" take the trouble to answer these questions, either In your piper or, better still, direct to me, I shall appreciate her klmUesa JOHN T. CRAMER, Rutherford, N. J, A Ilye Factory Girl' 11 Heply. To the Editor Permit me to say to "One Who Knows," or thinks he knows, that he Is much mistaken when he sa)s a factory girl could not get a breakfast or wash a handkerchief. I work In the dye fac tory and can get a break faat, dinner and supper and wash more than a handkerchief, too. I sup pose ho has roped some poor factory girl In, and doesn't give her the price to get a breakfast; or perhaps he has been Jtlted by some factory girl. He ought to throw himself Id the factory pond to help fill It In; It would aave the Company two or three cart loads of dirt. HAZEL DALE, West New Brighton, 3 I, It Wast Fan for the Cop, T lion ah. To the Editor: While walking through Spring street, west of Bowery, I perceived quite a crowd; upon further Inspection I found that a police officer was en Joying himself pushing a poor peddter, who tried his utmost to move along In the badly paved street. Only slowly succeeding, however, the policeman treated him as one sees sometimes a "naughty" dog treated. Another officer sunned himself In his bretoer'a glory, for he grinned "ell oer." Now, of course, I do not know what the poor, wesk-lonklng peddler had done, but I do know that other means mora humane conld have been employed to make him move. IN THE NAME OF JUSTICE. I.noUInff for a Home. To the Editor Where can I find a little home near New York City? I am tired or living In a fat, and have been looking around for some little place that I could really call home, but to no purpose. I have almost given It up. I have seen several places, but do not cere to live In a wilderness, nor can I afford high rent or large commutation rates.

One has only to ask for a book to have It In a fortnight at the out side; If It Is not in the catalogue, (he librarian will order It and you can have It In twenty-four hours. Not only are the bookkeepers obliging, but gracious and Intelligent. There Is a cir culating musical library In Union Square and one hour's reading or rummaging among Illustrated histories will double tha enjoyments of a concert or opera, The morning and evening services are by no means the most Interesting fea tures of church. In nearly every denom ination there are auxiliaries about the parish and hospital and prison associa tions, diet kitchens, benevolent societies, i . choral clubs, neighborhood guilds, Indus, trial schools, kindergartens, kltchcngar. tens and social clubs, with knights of glory, young crusndcrs, women's unions, maids of honor, bands of hope and fflendly societies for the promotion of temperance and friendship.

The L'nMoclitlile. We envy neither the men nor the ' women who cannot epeak to a fellow creature out of their own circle or to anybody without the formality of an introduction. There is no computing tha amount of profit as well as pleasure such persons lose by hedging themselves in with this stupid fence of fastidiousness. We have always found more of this feel ing among persons who were mora touchy on their social position than among those self-respecting persons who thought nothing about It. A great deal of Intelligence is floating round the world without being labelled, and those men or women who have the good sense to recognize this fact and act upon It not only are educating themselves, but con feiring that pleasure which we art all bound by tne common ties of hu manity to exchange with one another. It seems to us that It Is pnly the snob and pretender who take a different view , of this question. t ICvnillne to the Sick. It is the opinion of most physicians and nurses that when a person Is too ill to read he is too 111 to listen to reading. The sick, as a class, prefer to have an Incident, the news or a story told to them. If reading Is done the reader should be seated nt the side or foot of the bed, where he can be seen by tha patient. The best reader is the one of slow, distinct speech, nnd with a volca sweet and soothing enough to put tha listener to sleep. The II lire-m In Modern Turkey. "Harem," in the modern acceptation of the word, merely means the prlvata apartments, F. Marlon Crawford writes, and these would be called by the sama name even in a bachelors' establishment Inhabited solely by men, but generally It Is applied to every place Intended for women. The end of the Turkish rail way carriage, curtained off from the rest. Is harem; so lb tho ladles' cabin on board ship, and the latticed gallery In a. mosque. In the dwelling-house It Is alio that quarter inhabited by the wife and childien and other ladles of the family; S and here I may say. In passing, that very few Turks nowadays have morejr than one wife. The traditional Turk with his innumerable women no longeiy exists, except as a very rare exception i but the Mussulman has not sacrifice the advantages of the privacy grant him by the Mahometan law and cuaja torn. . 10 Tho Cromwell.
