To-morrow marks the opening of the
Summer resort season. Where are you
going this Summer to the seashore, to
thq mountains or to some quiet spot In
the countryT All Winter long new cot
tages and new hotels have been making
their appearance with more or less en
ergy here and there, and In the Inst few
weeks things have been rushed forward
to have everything ready for the first
hot wave. The weather bureau declares
that at last the weather has settled
down for a good hot Summer, and next
week the vanguard of Summer visitors
will begin to arrive ot the various water
ing places. Near New York the regular
Summer residents have already opened
their cottages, and nt the nearby resorts
like. Hath Ilcach, Far Itockaway and
along the Jersey shore the hotels are
already well filled with visitors. liar
Harbor has not yet sprung Into active
life, and, of course, the mountain re
Boris are still slumbering In their Win
ter lethargy.
The "Sunday World" to-morrow will
devote three pages to laying before Its
readers nearly overythlng that they
would like to know about what has been
going on all Winter nt the various wa
terlng places. It will tell you all about
the new hotels, who have built new cot
tages and what general improvements
have been made here and there. If you
are going to return this Summer to the
same place you went last year you will
llnd n story telling all that Is new, and
giving you a very clear view of the cut
look for the season. Uesldes this, the
"Sunday World" will print a. very strik
ing page of pictures of the Summer girl
of 'W. showing her In her various spe
cialties, fads, fancies and frolics at the
big Eastern resorts.
Miss Meg Mcrrllii"!, that enterprising
and very courageoua young woman wha
has already acquainted the readers of
the "Sunday World" with visions of life
In New York and her varied and unu'ual
experiences, will to-morrow tell of what
she saw and did during a stroll along the
bottom of the Hay. This young woman,
with four pairs of underflannels to keep
her from being chilled, attired herself In
a diving suit and explored the mysteries
of life under water In our harbor. Any
body who has read Julea Verne's re
markable story, "Twenty Thousand
Leagues Under the Sea," will have some
curiosity to know what Mlis Meg Mer
rllles his to say about her experiences
among the nshej and crabs and eels down
Tho "Sunday World" to-morrow will
present n most timely and interesting
story, forecasting the chances of the
great American yacht Vigilant, which
has Just arrived In British waters, with
hir shirt sleeves rolled up, and ready to
show the crack English racers that she
can beat them all. This Is tho yacht
which last year held the championship
and defeated Valkyrie, nnd now,
under tho command of George Gould,
has stepped Into llrltlsh waters to show
her stern to the famouB llrltannla, the
Trlnce of Walcs'a celebrated yacht.
The "Sunday World" will tell exactly
what races Vigilant will try to win,
and will give the opinions of the leading
British yachtsmen on her chance of
bringing back to America all the cups
she can lay her hands on.
Among other features of the "Sunday
World" to-morrow will be a most
charming fiction story by Margaret De
land: a very curious article, with some
most extraordinary pictures, of animals
of paBt ages, those enormous beasts
that walked the earth before the days
of Adam; an Interesting Illustrated study
of the students of tho leading American
colleges for women and the girl gradu
ates of 1KU; an article of special Interest
to baseball enthusiasts on the birthday
of baseball, which occurred Just forty
eight years ago next Tuesday, when the
first match game of ball was played In
this country. To-morrow'B "Sunday
World" will be a most notable paper,
covering every realm of human Interest.
Don't mlsB to-morrow's "Sunday World."
The Lexow Investigating Committee
made a dip Into Bohemia yesterday and
elicited the fact that the uptown east
side Bohemian saloon-keepers had
formed an association for the protection
of Its members In their business, nnd
especially to enable them to do a Sun
day business without getting Into trou
ble. Their operations were on a very
limited scale, because they are poor, and
they make rather an Insignificant show
ing by the side of the grander scale on
which business Is conducted In the Ten
derloin precinct.
Is It not about time that the Commit
tee Bhould call to the stand some of the
notorious owners of the glided dens of
vice In the Tenderloin precinct and In
uptown districts, and some of the men
who are known to have run gambling
houses In the city for years, and to be
running them to-day?
What Is the use of examining the
needy keeper of nn east-side "coffee
house" or disreputable resort for poor,
abandoned wretches, when the bo-Jewelled
landladies of the golden palaces of
vice are to be had? Who carea about a
few newsbojs who play "oraps" when
the wealthy keepers of notorious gam
bling hells are Hashing their diamonds
and displaying their "rolls" on the roce
tracks or over the boards of green cloth?
Come, gentlemen of the Committee,
push on the excellent work ou are
doing, so that the whole story can be
put before the people before election,
and It cannot be charged that nny one
Is simply getting up a case for cam
paign purposes. The people arc after
vice, not votes; after plunder, nat poll
tics; after blackmail, and not ballots;
after police corruption, and not political
The citizens of New York are far more
Interested In good government than In
the next Governor.
Senutors, push on your excellent work!
A Buffalo newspaper expresses sur
prise that "Democratic Journals" In
New York should be "the most malig
nant enemies" of Tammany Hall, which
Is "the oldest Democratic organization
In the country " and "has fought so
many good tights for the Democracy "
It Is an error to suppose that Journals
having the principles of the Democratic
party at heart are enemies, malignant or
otherwise, of the Tammany organiza
tion because they are the enemies of
those who, having gained control of the
organization, are leading It astray from
Democratic principles, and by their cor
rupt methods making it a reproach to
the Democratic party and an Injury to
theJSemocratlo cause.
Tha work of purifying Tammany Uall
- t
la now going bravely on. The methods
It promotes and encourages are being
laid bare before the eyes of tho people.
Its leaders are fleeing from the wrath
certain to come If they stay. Its fol
lowers have the penalties of crime held
out before their ryes and sec thit tho
"protection" on which they have de
pended can no longer protect.
Arc the forces promoting this work
the "enemies" of Tammany? Are they
not rather Its best friends? There are
thousands upon thousands of honest
Democrats In Tammany who will rejoice
whin the purification und regeneration
arc complete, and who nro already look
ing forward to tho time when Tam
many under new nnd clean und honest
lenders can again claim her proud title
as the old Democratic organization of
the city.

The Vigilant Is expected to be ready
for the llrst of the Clyde regattas In
July, and It Is given out that the owners,
the Gould boys, will do their best to win,
und will not toady to Britannia, ns It
Is wld some English boats do. Why, of
course not. They will bent the Prince of
Wnles If they can, thnt Is sure. They
will have to do their best to win, anyway.
Mr. Richard Croker has arrived In
Queenstown. Everybody will rejoice to
hear that his first words to an Associ
ated Press teporter confirmed that as
sertion of his friends on this side of
the Atlantic, that he wilt be glad to give
the Lexow Committee any assistance In
his power, should they desire It. This,
of course, means that he will be reedy
to return voluntarily as a witness, should
he be wanted by the Committee.
It Is to be hoped that the Committee
will send Mr. Croker n polite Invitation
to 'kttfy. When search Is being made
for the money raised by the police nnd
tho Tammnny district lenders In the city,
and when It Is found very destrnble, In
deed, to trnce where It goes, an Investi
gation without the ex-lender's testi
mony seems like the play of "Hamlet"
with tho melancholy Prince excluded.
Of course everybody knows, ns Mr.
Croker claims, that he Is "out of poli
tics now," nnd holds no public position.
But the events being Inquired Into oc
curred when Mr. Croker was very much
In politics and occupied a prominent
public position.
Mr. Croker, with characteristic mod
esty, says that he left New York sud
denly and without announcement, be
cause "he did not suppose the public
attaches nny Interest to his move
ments." But, Indeed, the public does
attach n very great deal of Interest to
Mr. Croker's movements, nnd would
have been delighted to have heard from
his lips a history of how he accumu
lated his Aloddln-llke fortune, nnd what
he knows of Tammany methods In gen
eral und the police doings In particular.
Mr. Croker's Innate diffidence makes
him unaware of tho Interest token In
him by his fcllow-cltlzens. who were
nEtonlshed and grieved at his flitting.
The Populists have Indorsed the
Woman Suffragists. The Woman Suf
fragists have Indorsed the Populists.
There you are. So long as they conllnc
their achleements to Indorsing each
other, they are all right. Should Sen
ator PefTer and Susan B. Anthony take
long walks In the moonlight, holding
hands and acting skittishly, the coun
try might blush a little, but It would
resume its presence of mind Immediate

The Populists want the Government to
own and run all the railroads and tele
graph lines and banks, with several
other paying business enterprises of this
land. We presume that now that the
Woman Suffragists, have Joined In with
them tho Populists will tnck a codicil
on to their platform Insisting thnt the
Government will do dressmaking and
conduct millinery shops and soda foun
tains and Ice-cream parlors. This would
cerlastlngly clinch woman's Indorse
ment of the prairie statesmen's cause.
It Is so nice to see the Populist nnd the
Suffragist enjoying ench other's confi
dence In this manner. Now they have
nothing to do but wait for the day to
break when things will come their way.
If they care to use the dome of the Pulit
zer Building for horizon-scanning they
are welcome, but horizons are not In very
good working order this year, ami they
may wear out thlr scanners long before
the scan amounts to anything.

that I am disgusted with my country and shall be

To the ndltor:
Am I to understsnd by "O. F.'s" answer to
"Grace" that Jesus changed the sabbath day
from the seventh to the first day of tho week In
direct disobedience ot the ten commandment,
which still stand recorded unbroken, and are
taught to every Chrlstlsn child who attends
Sunday-school? It ao, he not only disobeyed the
commandmenta ot God, but ot hts Father also,
which. In my opinion, Is a very bad eiample to
teach children In a Sunday-school. Tho com
mandment still reads! "On the seventh day abalt
thou rest." This doaa not look aa It It had been
changed; and an event of auch Importance shonld,
In my opinion, have been recorded. There are
thousands of avente less Important than this
given great weight In the lltble. "0. F," In
referring to the Jewish Babbath ahould bear In

To the Editor:
Rome young students, who seam to be much
Interested In the problems propounded by parties
of advanced elucatlon, have called my attention
to a problem by a Mr. II A. Jones, the solution
of which has n,t appeared hitherto As all
those problems, however s'mp'.e. hava an edu
cational tendency, this one should not hsve been
sllghtod by your contributors, nery one of whom.
In our opinion. Is a voluntary teacher to those
who have not had the advantagei of an early
education. Problem ns stated to me: "Find
three right-angled triangles of different dimen
sions, but whose oresa are eiual "
As the following solution Is Intend, for young
atudenta not fsr advanced In geometry and men
suration, we shall try to make It sufficiently
comprehensive. There being no limit to areas
or, dimensions, we will select a rectangle Cxi feet,
area 48 square feet. Dividing this rectonsle by
a diagonal, we get two right-angled triangles, the
area of either equalling 24 square feet. 3o we
find our first parent right-angled trianglealti
tude, 6 feet, base, 8 feet, hypothenuse, 10 feet:
.area, 2t s-juare feet. As we must retain thla
area throughout ta find our second triangle wa
will now cut off fro-n our first rectangle 2xS feet,
containing 11 square feet, from which we form a
rectangle or nauare of 4x4 feet, which we add
to tt.o end ot the remaining portion
ot our first rectanglo (Sx4 feet), the area
of which was 22 square feet, and get our second
rectangle, it 12 feet, with an area of 43 square
feet. This roc Uncle we dllde by a diagonal
as before, and find our second right-angled tri
angle altitude. 4 feet, ban, 12 (cot; area, 24
rijuare feet. We trust the foregoing Is suf
fiflently plain for young students to soe how we
find our triangle of equal area and dlfferont di
mensions We now adopt a shorter method
than the foregoing To find our third, we reduce
the attitude from 4 to 2 feet and divide the area
by this altitude, and double the quotient will be
our base 24 divided by 3 equals 8, which, mul
tiplied by 2 equals 1C, our bare. Our third
triangle has an altitude of 3 feet, base, 16 feet;
area, 24 square fet. To find our fourth triangle
we reduce the altitude to 2 feet, then the area,
24, divided by 2 equals 12, and 12 multiplied by 2
equals 24, our base. Our fourth Is, altitude, 2;
base, 24, area, 24 square feet.
13 y Theorum 47.1, Euclid, the square root of the
sum of tho squares of the altitude and base will
be the hypothenuse of each of tho foregoing right
angled triangles, all of which will be different,
as are the sides. Halt the altitude by the base,
or half the product ot the altitude by the base,
will give the area of right-angled triangles In

Cauliflower au gratln Is a favorite
dish with nil who are fond of this vege
table, which. If It can be said to havo
a fault. Is that of Insipidity. Hy the

pour over It a cup of drawn butter well
seasoned; sprinkle with four table
spoonfuls of grated cheese, and brown
