Speaking of the peculiar incidents that occasionally occur on the stage, a well known actor said that one of the most laughable happened some time since In the theatre of a thriving tow up the state. The scene at that par ticular moment was the deck of a ship, around which rolled and heaved a vast theatrical sea. The hero was solilo quizing on the pitching deck and the audience was intently listening to his spellbinding word when a ruddy head protruded through a hole in the ocean In full view of all. The hero, however, wa (jual to the occasion. Glancing at interest in this trrpxt rplp. Furniture Co. Orange Street. S. Piatt Co. the apparently floating head, he lusti ly yelled: "Man overboard! Man overboard!" Hardly had he spoken before the head of the sea manipulator was withdrawn, and, with a sad sigh that could be heard all ovr the house, the actor pit "eously cried: "Too late, too late! another poor fel low has gone to his last account."

Conference Agreeable to Hire Atten tlon Called to Situation In Anthracite Industry Declares That Miner. Have the IUnl Thing In Short Work Day- Increase of Wages Would Raise Cost of Coal to Consumers. New York, Feb. 9. President D&Vid Wlllcox, of the Delaware & : Hudson Co., to-day made public the text of the letter which he wrote to John Mitchell, president of the United Mine Workers of America, concerning a con ference between the mine workers and the operators to discuss the wage ques. tion. Accompanying the letter Mr. Will' cox issued a formal statement In which he declared that erroneous statements regarding the letter had 'been publish ed, based upon a misconception both of Its character and Its contents- . Mr. Wlllcox's letter, which is dated February 3, begins by stating that the proposed conference on the 15th in stant will be agreeable to him. He then call "attention to the situation In the anthracite industry arising from the fact that practically all matters involv ed have already been the subject of arbitration. "At the termination of the strike of 1902 In the anthracite regions, by the submission to arbitration In which all parties Joined, It was provided that all questions at issue between the re spective companies and their own em ployes should be decided by the anthra cite commission. Accordingly, you ap peared before the commission in be half of the employes and presented to it all such questions." Mr. Wlllcox adds that the commls slon found that the average hours ac tually worked per day did not exceed six for the miners and eight for the other employes, and the present condi tions are substantially the same. Any suggestion for an eight-hour day for the employes of the Delaware & Hud son Co., by the day, does not, he says, "therefore look to the diminution of actual hours of labor, as they do not now average eight hours per day, but merely to a change of wages by in creasing the rate per hour so as to ad vance ths wages about 12.5 per cent. above the standard fixed by the strike commission. This advance would' amount approx imately to eight cents per ton of coal or on the entire product about $4,000,000 per annum. Such an Increase would tend to advance the price of coal to consumers." Mr. Wlllcox refers to th4 wage scale as fixed by the commission, which "among other things decided with great vigor that the Industry must remain open to all seeking employment regard less of their affiliation or otherwise with labor organizations. ' MEW ENGLAND APPLES TUB- BEST. V ' Boston, Feb. 5. The many times great grandparent of the New Eng land apple, it Is claimed, was brougiit over in the Mayflower by Governor John wlnthrop. But it has been also stated tfiat when Wlnthrop was an chored off these shores the hermit Blackstone, already had apple trees growing about his cabin at Shawmut Neck. So the lineage of the king of fruits Is somewhat confused, but in any case New England has Inherited full title to her noted crops ot the present day. It Is probable that the mall cluster of apple tress in Blackstone's orchard were the only ones growing in New England at that time. There are now approximately a dozen million apple bearing trees within our boundaries and Boston the scene of the first or chard, 1s the greatest apple shipping port in the world. From one hundred and fifty to two hundred million ap pies are brought into Boston every year by the New England railroads and shipped across to Europe. The past season has been a poor one for apples, a "poor apple year" because 1904 was a "good apple year." When the trees bear heavily one year, as they did in 1904, they exhaust their vitality and the next year can offer but a scan ty harvest. But other causes contribu ted to cut down the yield this year. Cold rains in the spring prevented the setting of the blossoms. Insect pests nave ibeen particularly bad while fun gus and other diseases have played i their part in reducing the size of the I crop. The American Agriculturist en- timates this year's apple crop for the entire country at 23,495,000 barrels as against 45,360,000 barrels In 1904. In New England the yield will not total much more than half as much as last year. Yet shipments from Boston have not fallen off In anything like the same proportion. It is true that January figures so far show a shrinkage of a naif from those of a year B4TO, but in December exported 79,279 barrels, 6,140 more than during December, 1904, and in November 137,822 barrels, a falling on: of less than a third from lnst sea son. The principal reason for what, under the circumstances, is a good showing, is the high price of apples in Liverpool and London, which has drawn a large percentage of- the crop abroad, and tre favor which American apples have al ways met in the English markets. A writer in the Saturday Review once said, in complaining of the preference given by English purchasers to Amer ican fruit: "The explanation seems to ibe partially, at any rate, In Hie greater pains which American fruit growers bestow upon the gathering, storing and packing of the fruit. It may seem a small thing, but there Is no doubt that half the selling value of a crop of des sert apples may be thrown away by injudicious packing. That the beet of the American fruit carefully picked and packed, should present a better appearance, In Covent Garden, than the average 'English apples, which of ten look as If they had been beaten from the trees like walnuts, is not to be wondered at." Most of the apples raised In New England are sold on commission by the local exporters who, in their anxiety for foreign markets, are very strict about the honesty with which the 'barrels are packed. In spite of the fact that no such stringent legal regulations have been devised for the apple traffic in New England as the Dominion of Can ada attempts to enforce, there are very few attempts on the parts of Yankee ehlnnprs to nalm off Inferior fruit Wv "deaconing" the barrel.' in Nova. Sco tia and New Brunswick the farmers have been known to run the risk of se vere legal penalties and to outwit the insoectors 'bv filling1 nieces of ntrvnine with inferior apples placing the pipes in the center of the barrels, packing high grade fruit all about them and finally withdrawing them. In New England the commission merchants prevent such practices iby making careful in spections of the contents of all barrels, top and bottom, and by resolutely re fusing to have dealings with men who have shown themselves dishonest. The good reputation which New England apple growers have obtained for their uniformity in packing, as well aa for the soundness of their fruit, has ibeen extended in the last few years, and large quantities of American are now being transshiDDed from Kna-- land to various countries on the conti nent, Germany being an especially large purchaser. GUESSING AT DEAD WEIGHTS. Skill Shown by English Farmers at Fairs and Markets. Among farmers and agriculturists generally In the north of England, what is known as "dead weight guess ing" Is a very popular form of compe tition, and at the various fairs and markets marvelous examples of accu racy are forthcoming. Perhaps in the county of Cumberland they enjoy a greater amount of popu larity than anywhere else, and beyond question nowhere is more striking judgment displayed. Only the other day a really remarkable Instance of this was reported from Sllloth. In common with other visitors, T. Atlrer- ton was Invited at the show there to guess the dead weigth of a fat beast on exhibition. After scrutinizing the ant mttl, Mr. Atherton expressed his owln. Ion that the weight would be found to oe forty-three stone and eleven pounds. When recourse was had to tho arbitrament of the scales the foregoing ngures proved to foe absolutely correct, On another occasion, at Skelton, In the same county, there was a still more noteworthy demonstration of skill, a couple of expert competitors succeed ing in guessing the exact weight of a boast, But the place of honor ought per haps to be awarded to a lady, who at a still more recent show successfully judged the weight of a heifer.even to tho last half-pound. The lady who has this performance to her credit is M'iss Jeannle Armstrong, who at a show a few days ago at Halt whistle estimated the weight of a ponderous heifer at forty-five stone ten and one-half pounds. The beast turned the scale at exactly these figures. In point of accuracy not far behind was a competitor - In the block test guessing competitions held at Wlgton (Cumberland) agricultural show. In this case, however, the animal whose weight had to be guessed with a ehp a much easier subject for such an esti mate. One forecast of its weight was eighty-two and one-half pounds, which turned out to be absolutely correct. This guess was made toy Percy Strong of Drumlcaning, but how close the es timates were may be gathered from the fact that threie other competitors were only a half-pound out At the same show there was some excellent guessing at the dead weight of a huge bullock which won the admi ration of the visitors. The actual weight of this bovine monster proved to be no ress than fifty stono thirteen pounds, Quite a number of persons had a shot at this competition, the win ners being J. Threlkeld of Wampool and J. Wills of Greenspot, both of whose guess'es were fifty stone -twelve pounds. The forecasts of three other competitors, namely, W. Graham of Wlgton, J. Spedding of Dockray and John Turnbull ot Cleator were only a trifle of thr'ee pounds out of the actual weight But for a really sensational display of expert weight guessing we must turn back to the records of last year's agricultural show at Aspatrla.. The subject was a shorthorn cow, whone weight when killed a few days after ward was certified to be forty-three stone two pounds. By an extraordina ry coincidence there were among the competitors no fewer than four whose guesses were found to ibe exactly. these ngures. As a set-off to their accurate fore- Casts, however, there were a large number which proved to be very wire of the mark. One of the competitors was, Indeed, upward of sixteen stone out, his guess running up to the high figure of fifty-nine stone seven pounds. On the other hand, yet another compe titor made quite a ridiculous underCs tlmate, he placing the dead weight of the shorthorn at nearly nine stone less than It actually proved to be.

Wre school-rooms constantly fresh' ened with the air so abundantly provi ded for our needs there would be fewer nwvous, irritable and worn-out teach rs and more bright, clear-eyed, clear brained, strong-bodied, happy pupils. Fresh air in the homes, both dav and night, summer and winter, with the knowledge and practice of correct breathing and the partaking In uffi dent quantities of wholesome food and pure water, would transform many a sickly, irritable family into a ibrlght healthy, happy household. I will go still further and say that sunshiny and airy business houses and offices would reduce defalcations and embezzlements to a minimum. Unnatural darkness breeds disorder and disease of minr, body and spirit and fathers desperate deeds, while air and sunlight produce hope, health, cheer and morality. Suggestion.
