Over 150,00(1 copies have been sold already and three printing stflhlishraents are kept busy supplying the demand. The work Is now iu its twenty-fourth edition. Compressed air appears to work well on the Westfleld (Massuclniselts) street railroad. On a recent day three cars made each fourteen trips, or Bfty-Bix miles, and carried during the duy 1,800 people. The ears are easily controlled, and iu descending grade there is little or no consumption of air. They can be run at a rate of speed equalling twenty-flve miles an hour, and are ca pable of sufficient storage capacity to run two round trips (eight miles) with out recharging. The managers of New York theaters are disturbed by a law passed by the last legislature of that state, forbidding persons to stand in the aisles or pas sageways of a theater. One of the theater managers was lately brought into court for having allowed a person to stand in the circle back of the or chestra seats, and the defence was that this space was not a passageway in the meaning of the law, but the court has decided otherwise. The line whs made nominal in consideration of the fact that this was the first case under the Hew law, and the manager will appeal to a higher court. If the judgment is correct, it puts an end to the sale of ad mission tickets to all the theaters in the city, and in the future no person not willing to pay for a seat can secure en trance to the orchestra floor of a theatre In New York. William Matthewson, aged seventy five, of Wichita, Kansas, claims to be the real Buffalo Bill, that title having becu given to him in 1860. When asked how William F. Cody came to get the title, he replied: "Well, you see, Cody Worked for me when he was a young lellow he is only about forty-live now. I reckon he had begun to read Indian etories, mid see how much was to be made by that kind of a reputation, and he was always fond of talk and show. I never was any hand to wear my hair Jong, and go swaggering about the country blowing about what I had done. I've had my hair get. pretty long at times, but was always glad to get; it cut, When I could get back t o a place where I could. Cody knows bo has no real right to .the name, but if ho wants to Bhow of as a dime novel hero, I have no objection. I reckon seeing so many of those Indian lies has sort of disgusted me with talking about my adventures, though I've had about as many and thrilling-escapes as any of 'era can tell." According to the Madrid papers great alarm prevails in Jerez, where phyllox era has appeared in several places in the famous wine-growing district, which annually produces 230,000 hectolitres of wino, chiefly for foreign consumption. It is supposed that the phylloxera was introduced from the infected districts of the proviuoes of Granada and Mala ga, where it has caused great havoc. It seems the pest was first noticed in Sep tember, 1893, at Villamartin and Padro del Rey, iu the province of Cadiz. No effective precautions were taken, though the wine-growers were warned of the approach of t he danger which re vealed itself with the earliest shoots and leaves in the spring. The Jerez papers raised a note of alarm as far back as June 6. The authorities recently or dered an ofBciol engineer to inspect a Suspected vineyord near Jerez, where be found many diseased vines. He says that; he. believes it will be extremely difficult to avert the destruction of tho Jw' vinejTwdi, where 10,000,000 of plant lire m'M lured over S0,000 acre.

Cards have been called the devil's picture book, and many have discovered that the devil Is In theui. But how devilish are they when used by Christians to make an idle hour or sev eral Idle hours pass pleasantly? We suppose the true answer to this conun drum is that it depends on how they are used. Cards certainly have a way of Interesting people so that even if people are Christians they may play too many nights a week and sit up too late on the nights when they play. Cards do not encour age sober thought, and we are afraid that they do encourage some cheating. They also have a bad reputation, and some Christians who play cards feel ob liged to make excuses for having any thing to do with things that have Deen and are so immorally used. They in spire an eager and a selfish ambition in Christians to beat, and they lead to a good deal of unchristian quarrelling. And we suppose that there are not muuy Christians who would want to drop dead at a card party, even as there are not many who would want to drop dead on the floor of a ball room. Christians who want to play cards and who also wont to enjoy their relig ion are confronted by the fuctthot there isn't much fun in the kind of card play ing that would be universally recog nized as having nothing devilish in it. The kind of card playing that is popu lar and fascinating is the kind that is apparently not conducive to growth iu grace. Thus Bishop Vincent says of progressive euchre: "Take that fash ionable form of card-playing, progres sive euchre, what is it but gambling? What difference in principle between the forfeits of the one and the prizes of the other? The fact is thiat the path to the innermost hell of gambling is through the clover bloom of fashionable card-playing." Of course no Christian should walk iu that path even if it does lead through the clover bloom of fashionable enter tainment, and every Christian should be prepared to eschew fun that is not morally wholesome. So, perhaps, a Christian cannot profitably indulge in the kind of social card playing that is the rage. If a Christian wants to be in the swim in the matter of social card playing he will have to give much time, thought and talk to it, and he will also have to gamble more or less mildly. And if he wants to play cards in an entirely safe way he won't get anybody to play with him. But fun or no fun, it is probable that Christians will, on the whole, do better to let social card playing as at present conducted alone. We do not consider the object of the Christian life to be to have as much fun as possible and to have fun in any way that hasn't the plain mark of a cloven foot upon it. It would probably be wise for most Christians, uud of good example, not to play progressive euchre five or six nights in a week. It would also be the same for those who are not Christians. A (iOOn EXAMPLE. Isn't it about time for Connecticut to begin to take some interest in the Torrens system of land registration and transfer? It will, we suppose, be a long time before the merits of the system are appreciated in this country enough to be put into law, but they are plain and great. We. will call the attention of pur readers to some "of them and thus do something toward getting them no ticed. Under the Torrens system land can be transferred without the red tape and rigmarole whioh now govern the mat ter. In New South Wales, where the system is in full operation, an owner who wishes his land placed on the register has to make application and, submit all his title deeds for exam. ination; he is also required to make oath to the value of the land. Public notices of the application have to be issued, and any" person may enter a caveat against it. The time for lodg ing a caveat lapses from thirty-five to J seventy days after jpublloatlon of notice, uiiIbm proceedings are taken and notice thereof served on the regUtrar general, or unless an injunction Is obtained from (he supreme court retraining the registrar general from brluglng the land therein referred to under the provisions of the act. Further machinery Is pro vided for obtaining decisions on any doubtful or disputed point, uud there Is a general right of appeal to the Supreme court. When the title has been ap proved, the name of the owner Is entervd on tho register, and aeerliltonte of title Islsituud. The former title deeds, so far iu they have exclusive reference to the land In question, lire cancelled by the registrar-general. On lining regis tered us owner the applicant acquires a title which, subject only to such incumbrances or iiilercsu us are en tered on the register, Is uu Indefensible, nun. Provision, however, Is made for the subsequent Invalidation of a certifi cate of title, If It cun be shown to have been obtained by fraud. If the certifi cate of title should havo been lost, a copy of it alluded by the registrar gen erul will suillcu for all flie purposes for which the oiiyinul certificate was good. After the land has been brought under the provisions of the act, all future dculiug with it become extremely sim plified, the laud being transferred or dealt with by short Instruments framed according to certain simple statutory forms, which In their turn are duly reg istered. A new owner acquiring land by such a transfer may either have a fresh certificate of title issued to him, or un endorsement showing the transfer put upon tho old one. In uddition to the advantages of facility in dealing with land, the registered owner obtains the enormous one of hav ing his land protected against the stat ute of limitations, and therefore not liable to be tuken from him by any amount of adverse possession. No in strument deuliug with laud is effectual until registered. Of course reform in the transfer of land may be expected to be slow, as slow perhaps us a rise iu its price when such rise is eagerly looked for, but the old way Is so cumbersome and expen sive and the new way so simple and economical that a change will probably be generally made sometime. FASIIIOX XOTEH, Lace and Embotdertei Without Stint. So unsparing is the use of laces that often when the summer girl sils down she Is a fluff of lace to the knees. Her skirt fits closely to the knees, having only one seam in the back. There Is set on a much gored lower part. Over this Is a deep flounce of lace put on as full as ever It can go and1 with all Its flare encouraged. At the foot of the skirt are several small frills of lace and sometimes for fear the fluff will not be enough, the silken skirt is slit up al most to the knees so that through the openings the rich lace of the under petticoat, itself fit to be out In the world, show. But the designs for the lace displayed are so many that It now seems as if every woman had her own, and if she hasn't ideas for, the use of laces, she's sure to have them in em broideries. To-day's picture . presents a novel and handsome, embroidery trimming, Here the blouse waist has a square yoke in back, which, together with the fronts is embroidered. The vest is made of moussellne ,de sole and fastens beneath the embroidery on one side. The epaulettes consist, of, velvet and accord with the Louis VX. sleeve of the satin, which Is garnished with lace insertion and an' embroidered frill. The skirt Is a trifle .draped . and . le trimmed on one side by the long ends of the velvet belt, on the other by an em broidered arrangement. . ,- If hands and arms will stand It, you may wear your party-gown without gloves. In such case the nails must be beautifully kept, and the fingers may be literally loaded with ring.. Tur quoises are as fashionable as ever, and the fancy Just now Is to have" them set with pearls. The craze for color has resulted in the setting of strongly tint- ot stones together. Emeralds, tur quoises, rubies and sapphires-are mafle up together, often with -curious effect. For rings to wear in full regalia , the lighter stones are preferred,, set In pro fusion of diamonds. There js 'a ' fancy for a bar ring, worn on the thlrdJflnarer. the bar stretching across the little and second finger. This bar Js set with dia monds and either opals or moonstones, making an effect of great brilliancy, - FLORETTE. HAWK CAUSES EXCITjUXElfT., All Litchfield Is Interested In. It Life or Death. , Litchfield. Julv lis 183. To the Editor of the JpunwAL and Cobrmb. Shall the hawk be. killed? That. "11 the burning question of the'"' "hour. Ninety-nine persdncW of W po'ssiblj hundred will exrlnlm rio-hi 'nfr -itht. . . . Y .... , out a moment's hesta,tlpn"t ."Kin the. nawa; - Ana in nintynm cmm .oat of a hundred they would be right.. Bo there seems to be but one chanoe In ttxM for the poor hawk, the que' tlon implies that the hawk la a cap tured hawk aad can be killed when ever hie captors choose to klU him. But there are thing to be considered. In the first place the heading of this let ter shows that it Is written In Lltcb field. The hawk Is therefore, presuma bly, a Litchfield hawk. There may be no documentary evidence In existence to prove that he was born and brought up In the village; but having been cap tured In, or about, Litchfield the bur den of proof Is on the other side. It Is for his enemlei to show that he Is not entitled to all the rights and immuni ties of a Litchfield hawk. Aguln, the question Is a Litchfield question and must be met and answered from the Litchfield point of view. The Lltch fielder Is full of humanity. He has n heart even for hawks. He would not kill. a mosquito unless the killing were an act of imperative justice. A tem perate and self-contained mosquito, one not exceeding the legitimate wants of his organism. Is as safe In Litchfield as In his native swamp with his mother. The question Is therefore not so easy as it at first appears. The reader must to begin with accept In a general way the Litchfield view of things. Then he may proceed to the particular circum stances of the present case. In the good old times there were no hotels In Litchfield. Litchfield purses were better filled then, than, alas, they are to-day, and Litchfield houses were as large as Litchfield hearts. In every house there were from two to a dozen spare bed-rooms. To occupy one, even for a brief period, was the highest pos sible happiness to which a oolontal dame, or a colonial warrior, could as pire. AH proper persons, coming to Litchfield, whether for pleasure or prof- It, were entertained regally. All im proper persons were at once hailed be fore a burgess, lodged in Jail, kept there till they learned manners and probity, and then fired out of town. In those balmy days there was no such nonsense as warrants, trials by Jury, appeals, balls, &c, &c. The burgess was the Incarnation of justice and equity; supreme judge and lord high executioner. How much better for the country had the old Institutions been preserved! What Immediate mince meat a Litchfield burgess sitting at Chicago would have made of such a creature as Debs! In process of time, with the spread of the fame of Litch field's hygenic and social charms, the number of strangers attracted became so large that the hospitality of the na tives could not expand to meet it. It became absolutely', necessary tq erect and establish hotels. The hotel era was a new era for tltehfleld. At flrs the hotels were small, and were regarded as hospitable annexes to the houses. The idea of making money out of a stran ger has never,' defiled the Litchfield mind. Finally became necessary to build a larger hotel, one especially adapted to the accommodation of out siders; ' that ls.'Tpeople not' known to Litchfield, or Lttchflelders, who come on probation, offering acquaintance and prepared for acceptance or rejection; city people with strange desires and necessities, peculiar garbs and singu lar manners of speech. For them, not so many years ago, was erected : the Lake View Hotel on West street. Here they were allowed to do substantially as they pleased; and were regarded with the mild, yet benevolent, indiffer ence characteristic of Litchfield. Pro vided they went to church twice on Sunday and drank cider brandy and Medford rum, sentence was suspend ed. They could display their foreign duds up and down West street, but not up and down North or South streets. Lately the hotel has passed Into new hands. An outside party, seized with enterprising and money-making no tions, has come in, has taken posses sion and has been putting advertise ments in the newspapers. This adver tising departure from established cus toms on the part of the new hotel man excites comment. Litchflelders are very slow to express disapprobation, but they are expressing it. They state that the village is not for people who are attracted by advertisements. They are apprehending Inroads of the crea tures who go to Lenox, Kidgefleld and other advertised resorts. Moreover, the new hotel . man has changed the name of the hotel from "Lake View" to Hawk-Hurst." The old name was good enough. Why change it? It sig nified that you saw the lake from tne hotel, and you did. The new name is regarded with suspicion. It has a smack of "Hearly or Bavy Hengllsh." and seems Intended to attract Anglo maniacs away from Newport and Bar Harbor. Let all such be warned ..to stay away. There are ducking ponds in the neighborhood and old stocks -and pillories hidden away in the jail, but still serviceable. The Litchfield bur gess, too. though shorn of pristine pow er, is still a terror to evil-doers. Noth ing so excites' his majestic ire as a dude. Beware, dudes; be scaroe, lest ye fall Into his righteous hands! Another objection to the name is that it obliges every Lttchftelder to be able at every hour ot the day to tell exactly what a "hurst" is. No easy matter- dictionary or no dictionary as every one can find out for himself by trying. Another, and the last, act of the hew hotel man has outraged the whole town and is the immediate cause Of this letter. For the purpose of empba sizing the "Hawk" part of his new fangled name he has erected a oage, .In front of hiB porch and placed therein a live, free-born, Litchfield hawk.- hAi well- harness an Amerloan eagle to" an ash cart," is the1 exclamation of every hill, valley and wooded grove. Litchfield is pausing, as every com munity should pause, wben it is face. to face with an event which will pass Into history. Litchfield feels the great responsibility ot the orlsis, knowing that the manner In which she meet it will be cited for generations as example and precedent. Until' the hand of jus tice has fallen, the recorder may. not make public the deliberations of -au thority. Public opinion is, however, public property and may be published. All agree that Immediate action 1 im perative: and all are happy that the Humane society of Litchfield, known the world over as the H. 8. of Lhas appointed a committee with full power: Until the committee decree Litchfield will remain dlsci-eeL. But Deonler will talk, and Litchfield talk is always fen- derous and valuable. It has leaked out that the committee has decided that the publlo exhibition of an Im prisoned hawk ' is demoralising and must cease. The publlo is with the committee In this decision. Not that the adult Lltchflelder has anything to fear. If all of Noah's collection of wild animals were to be encaged and dis tributed up and down North and South streets, ths adult LI toh fielder would walk from one end to the other with out imperiling morality. His fear Is for others, for the young and the un sophisticated, in whom the microbe of cruelty Is easily engendered and propa gated. It Is also reported thst the ne cessities of advertising will have no weight with the committee as a plea. If an act be Immoral In itself, the pur pose of its use oannot be considered. In fact the only point remaining Is the point stated at the beginning of this letter: "Shall the hawk be killed?" The alternative Is to open the door of -the cage, release the Inmate and per mit him to resume his predatory hab ft a. Just at this point a rumor has been started that tho hawk Is blind of one eye, and moreover has been so long In captivity that even with both eyes In tact he would not be able to take care of himself If given his liberty. Killing on the spot would therefore certainly be more humane than exposing to cer tain starvation. The committee when appointed, and those appointing it, had little Idea of the labor Imposed. Testimony on the points at Issue must be taken. Ex perts must be summoned and enter tained. Ornitho-occullsts are rare even In Litchfield and their time Is most valuable. Besides, who Is to tell what a hawk may do, or may not do, with ono eye? It certainly cannot take two eyes to see one Litchfield chicken. But can tho hawk with one eye be so sure of his swoop as to be sure of seizing the chicken? AH this, mind you, Is on the supposition that he has but one eye; a fact not proved and most difficult of proof. The proposition of putting the matter to a practical test by tying a string to his leg, letting him soar, and at the proper moment exposing a fat and seductive chicken, can hardly be entertained. In the first place the string would Interfere with natural soar and natural swoop. And where In all Litchfield could a man, woman or child be found to pull him back from the empyrlan heights of liberty to the encaged confines of captivity? Not a chicken man, or woman, could be found In all the county who would not rather lose a dozen chickens perhaps It would be safe to put it at half a dozen than put a hand to so hard-hearted an act! No; the matter must be decided the oretically and by experts. But when decided will not other questions arise? Suppose the ornitho-occullsts find that the bird is indeed blind of one eye. Suppose the Society of Colonial Wars, to whom has been confided the delicate matter of the hawk's pedigree and his tory, finds that he is truly a Litchfield hawk and has been verily incapacita ted by' long confinement. What then? Will Litchfield kill a poor, decrepit, semi-Wind creature? Never! Perish the thought! On the contrary, a large and commodious cage will be forthwith built and the hawk will be fed for life at the public crib. It is reported that the Village Im provement society feels slighted because It was not consulted by the H. S. of L. at the outset; alleging very rightly that the sight of the imprisoned bird is as much of an offense to Litchfield's aes thetics as the fact of Its imprisonment is an offense to Litchfield's humanics. The-V. 1. S. is, it iBgiveri out, to be placated by being put in charge of the inscription for the new cage. The in scription, which is to be of a worked pattern with a raised border, will set forth all the facts, so that a casual ob server, can read and understand at a glance. . If the committees of the club can be , kept quiet all will go Well. If they. insist upon sticking in their oar matters will become complicated and life in Chicago may be preferable. In the meantime the sad hawk, with his pathetic eye, or eyes, as the case may prove to be, gazes with interested Inquiry at the groups which form and re-form about his cage. A placid smile at-tlmee illumines bis rigid features as the conviction wells up from his heart to his brain that he must be among friends and that he too is a Lltchflelder. PERIANDBR. . FXACTIOX8.
