HOW BAPID TUAN8IT COBBECTS THE EVIL OP
Following up the subject of overcrowding the street
cars, a reporter was instructed to spend a da J" on the
Eighth avenue street car line, and note the numbers
travelling on the cars at various hours In the day,
as lu the case of the Third avenue line, a description of
which appeared In the Ukualu some time ago. Front
the report given below It will be seen that there is a
murkod difference between the Third and Eighth avenue
routes In the manner of packing the cars. While,
morning and evening, the cars of the former line on
the east side are sweat boxes Into wbloh as high
as 70 to 00 passengers are crammed by enter
firming cuuuuciurs, uu luu lauur line (owing m
completion of the New York Elevated Kallroad through 1
to Central Park) the company have no chance to pack
passongern, for the simple reason that they cannot get
enough to till their cars, oxcept now and thon. The
relation of rapid transit to the solving of the question
of "how to stop the ovorcrowding of cars" Is an Interesting
MORNING TBAVK1# SOUTHWARD.
A count made of 18 cars arriving at the Fiftieth
street depot from points above, between half-past
seven and eight o'clock, showed that during the half
hour but 121 passengers were carrlod. Six of the cars
arrived empty, 3 of them with but 2 passengers
ciioh, 2 with 3 each, 2 with 4; 2 cars were
tilled, 6 hod 1 passenger each standing, and
I car contained 10 ou the platforms and straps.
The few cars that eontainod a full complement of passengers
were from MoComb's Dam and Manballanvllie.
Persons familiar with the trutlio on tho road lielore
the opening of the Elevated Kallroad to the Park report
that the downward bound cars used to be well tilled and
more or less overcrowded. The above figures show
very conclusively that the steam line on Ninth avunue
Is destined to relieve Eighth avenue of the great bulk
of travel except for local or short tripa
Careiul counts were made of the cars at various
points south ol the depot, and tho fact wits established
beyond a doubt that even for that distance the Klova'tod
Kallroad is a powerlul competitor of the Eighth
iveuue horse car line. The following ore the tigurcs

The travel* between four and naif past Ave P. H
is heavier than the down travel in the morning, as
provod by the counts of 41 cars that carried
1,168 persons, 339 of whom were standing. Counts ol
30 cars between six and seveu P. M. showed an
average of 30 to tho car. The highest number
was at a quarter-past six. when one car passed
into Hudson street with 24 In seats, 19 standing
inside and IT on the platform, making a total of
CO in the car. After half-past six the mob diminished
gradually until seven o'clock, when nearly all tho
passengers coukl ilnd sealA On the morning runs
southward the travel is chiefly below Twenty-third
street The cars starting from and arriving at the corner
of Canal street and llroadway are generally well
filled morning and evening. Conductors on the line
report that since the Elevated Railroad has reaehod the
1'ark travel between thero and Twenty-third street has
fullcn off fully soventv per cent, while they estimate
the total decrease in trie company's business owing to
the construction of the road at lorty per cent These
racts and tlgures clearly show that rapid transit steam
roads are cures for overcrowding on the horse ears,
uid all who are interested In getting seats will bail with
ioy the proposed construction on Third avenue nest
summer ot a double truck steam road by the New
fork Elevated Kuilroad Company.

The better to illustrate the manner in which tho

One of the best roads In tho city, as far as cleanliness
and ventilation of the cars are concerned, is the
Broadway and University Place Railroad; yet the company,
morning and evening, do not run sufficient cars
to accommodate the travel Superintendent Ledbettor
reports that they run their cars between eight and a
quarter to eleven A. M. on one minute headway; then,
until half-past two, on two mtuutes headway,
and after that hour, until the northern
bound "rush" is over, on one minute headway.
The company run 72 cars daily between the
Astor Houso and tho depot and 20 between
the depot and Broadway and Broome street. Injustice
to the management It is proper to say that they
have a class of conductors who aro polite and attentive
to tho wants of passengers. Tho only iault with them
is that they are compellod to pack too closoly.

"REMEMBER ST. VALENTINE."
APPROACH OP THE A NWTVER8ABT OP CUPID AND
THE ID28 OP HYMEN?VALENTINE'S DAT IN
THE OLDEN TIME.
Od Monday all maidens and youths who have ra,
ceived reciprocal wounds from the arrows of Cupid and
who Tiew the possibility of having to light Hymen's
torch, will celebrate the birthday of St Valentine.
Though the times are hard and money scarce, the demand
Is greater this year than ever for these missives
of love or courtesy. For let it be understood that all i
valentines which pass through the post on Valentine's
Day do not betray a feeling of love, nor do they always
Indicate a motive of courtesy. Malicious people who
have f&noled spites or wrongs to avenge and who are
desirous of being "even," seize the occasion of this j
ancient and honored festival of St. Valentine to h&vn a
laugh at those whom they may dislike. The letter
carriers who are oo duty on St. Valentine's Day
will be worked very hard in the delivery of
love's missives, and, no matter how cheerfully thoy
are received on other days In the year, this is the one
day on which a specially grateful smile Is sore to greet
them. The origin and cause of the Fourth of July and
Washington's birthday are very well known to the American
people, yet of the 40,000,000 who are approaching
Contennia! Day with fervent hope and gladness bow
few consider tho derivation of St. Valentine's Day I In
the old, proud days of Rome, when the Republic had
become distasteful to the mob, no Icstlval was more
honored than that of the Lupercalla, which was celebrated
on tho Lupercal Mount during several days in
the middle of February. This festival had a ceremony
which was the foundation of St. Valentino's Day.
Young women who were desirous of gaining beaux had
their names placed in a box. and the young men who
desired the love of the maidens drew their names by
chnnee und selected their raatos. The bishops and v
fathers of the early Church found it needful to obliter- \|
ate these pagan customs afterward; but Mi. Valentine,
a priest of the Church, was born on the 14th of February,
and his connection with the nomenclature of the
day is very slight. Born oo that day, he was selected as
the patron of distressed aud anguished couples, and
his memory is kept groon forever by them. To-day
the stranger who visits the centre of the Christian
world may look, by special favor, on a part of the
Saint's remains in the Chnrch of St. Praxedes, near
Porta del l'opolo (Gate of the People), which formerly
bore the name of the Porta Valentin!. St. Valentine
suffered a martyrs death at heathen hands, first
being beaten to death with clubs ana alterward behead
This being the centennial year it might be proper
here to state bow maldeuB sought for valentines 100
years ago. Says a young lady"Last Friday waa
Valentine's Day, and the night belore I got five bay
leaves and pinned lour of them to the four corners of
my pillow and the fltth to the middle, and then if
I dreamed of my sweetheart Betty said we should
bo married before tbe year was out. But to make
more sure, I boiled an egg hard and took out the yolk
and filled it with salt, aud when 1 went to
bed, ate it, shell and all, without speaking or
drinking after It We also wrote our lovers'
i) ami* upon bits of paper and rolled tbem
In clay, and put them Into wator; and tho first that
rose np was to be oar Valentine. Would you tbink lit
Mr. Kudolphus UolUngswortb was my tnan I 1 lay
abod and shut my eyes all the morning till he came to
our bouse, for I would not have seen another man before
him lor all the world." This Is a magnificent
recipo for getting a beau. Rut young ladles of an ardent
and taithful temperament should be careful how
they manage la eating egg shells, or the family physlciap
may have to be called 111 very suddenly.
The commerce In valentines Is something Incalculable,
and, as wo have mentioned belore, the hard
times do not aflect the trade. Mon and women will fall
In love and marry and be given in marriage, although
bread be dear and rents be at the maximum. A. Hkram>
reporter waited on Fisher, the well known valentina
manufacturer. No. 98 Nassau street, yesterday, to ascertain
from him bow valentines were made and what
were the newest fashions in those delectable missives
of love Mr. Fisher, whoso house has boen for forty
years engaged in this trade, during which
timo tnoy have turned out over 100,000,000
of valentines, said to the reporter:?"We have
a different style ol valentine now altogether from those
usod in the old tinfb. The war has brought luxury In
Its train and tho public demand a finer article, and our
artists' brains are racked to please a difficult public.
We have them from two cents to $50 and $100, and all
tho high pneed valentines this year seem to be of a
white or bridal color, in boxes. Everything is In bridal
fashion and suggestive of the possibilities of tho lover's
final intentions. Then we are compelled to make
bouquet valentines in that shape which opens and discloses
vines, birds, mottoes and portraits of a fancilul
nature. Then there is the basket of (lowers, also a new
thing, which is considered en rtgle by fashionable people.
We have lots of girls at work, and however it
may be in other business we are driven almost to
The basket of flowers, however, is not a new idea. <
Charles, Duke of Orleans, one of the fondest lovers in
