' Boston has a State of Maine club with ever 600 members and a growing non resident membership which includes many leading Maine men. Its quarters are in the rooms formerly occupied by the Twentieth Century club. The expert who makes a special study of the New Jersey mosquito estimates that $350,000, properly expended in draining the salt marshes, would be suf--.ficient to rid the State of this pest. The attainment of the object in view would seem to be worth the money. Lieutenant General Sir William But ler, recently retired from the British army, having reached the age limit of sixty-seven, was recalled from South Africa, for having insisted that tiie home government did not realize the fighting strength of the Boers- The Gaekwar of Baroda, the Indian potentate' who has been entertaining the Prince and Princess of Wales, pos sesses the most wonderful necklace in the world. It Is a collar composed of five rows of one hundred diamonds each, the whole set between rows of emeralds. Some of the stones are as large as walnuts and aJl of them are of the greatest purity. It is told of James Lick, the eccentric Ban Francisco millionaire, who found ed the famous observatory bearing his name, that when taking any one into his service he always asked the person to .plant a tree upside down, the roots In the air, the branches under ground. If there were any protest the man was at once sent away, Lick saying that he wanted only men who would obey or ders strictly. There are 1,840,280 more men than women In the United States, and the same proporation prevails in almost very other country. The only excep tion is in Paraguay, where there are more than twice as many women as men. This is due to the fact that some years ago In a political revolution and ft war with Brazil and the Argentine republic the men were almost exterminated. A young woman studying at the Academy of Fine Arts, in Philadelphia, is' credited by tfie Philadelphia Record with the invention of a word which should fill a long felt want- In the cir cle in which the young woman moves the word "culture" ig, in her opinion, overworked and misused, being dragged In on every occasion to describe persons of a certain status as, to intellect and breeding. "Are you cultured people?'1 the young woman was asked, concern ing some acquaintances, and her reply was: "No; they are only culturined." Not a few bachelor girls of New York eupport expensive establishments for itoelr own use. Miss Mary Van Alen, fo- instance, has three private homes, Which cost her C30.000 a year, and Miss Evelyn Van Wart is said to pay $50,000 for a similar whim, having a fine house Jn New York city and two others in Europe. Miss Margaret Astor Chanler ays $30,000 a year for the suDDort of User bachelor bourse In .West Seventy-' fourth street, New York; Miss Faith Moore and Miss Oiive Trowbridge dis tributing nearly a like amount. Helen Gould has private establishments which represent an outlay of about $50,000 a year. Some southerners have a weakness for card playing of some sort, and Sen ator Pettus, of Alabama, is no excep tion. On one occasion a doorkeeper on the Democratic side of the senate'show ed signs of uneasiness when the cham ber failed to adjourn at 7 jn the even ing. Seeing Senator Pettus enter, he asked If the senate was not going to adjourn soon. "Why?" asked the aged Alabaman. The doorkeeper hesitated for a moment and then said frankly: "I have a poker party on, senator." "Oh, I see. Well, I'll see what I can do." He entered and took his seat, but arose immediately. "May I interrupt the senator?" lie asked cf the orator who had the floor. "The hour is late and unless the senator desires to con clude his speech this evening It seems to me that it might well be continued to-morrow." '"I yield to the senator for a motion to adjourn," replied the ora. tor. A moment later the doorkeeper was on his wsy rejoicing.' OVti FLAG AjW OVJl COMMERCE. The government is waking up at last to the importance of protecting the American merchant marine and foster ing its development. Our ocean carry ing trade has too long been mainly done by foreign ships not by ships flying the American flag. This has been and Is a discredit to this nation. American en terprise is proverbial the world over, excepting in this respect. Now at last a bill has passed the senate-and it originated there the effect of which, if It is carried out ill be to put the Stars and Stripes once more wiiere they belong In our ocean carrying trade. The bill is to apply where It is needed. It Is 'to build up what Senator Gallln- ger has called "the hard-working cargo ships, the democracy of the ocean, and fly toe flar unon them. Tt establishes, by the help of reasonable subventions for carrying the malls, thirteen new contract mall lines to South and Central America, Africa and Asia, and by a general subvention at the rate of $5 per gross ton, to cargo carriers in the foreign trade, provides encouragement for commerce In gener al with foreign ports. ' But the bill is, moreover, a measure for national defense. It provides for a force of 10,000 trained American naval volunteers, all to be seamen or officers on board the aided ships, and all lm mediately available as sailors In the navy In case of war. It adds a tonnag. o( some 300,000 in steel, mail ships to our auxiliary navy in time of war.' In cldentally, of course, It will provide a constant reserve of American sailors to b drawn upon, through voluntary en listment, as seamen for the navy The objects of the bill are comprehend ed in Ms title, viz:' "To promote the na tional defense," to create a naval re serve, to establish ocenn mall lines to foreign markets, to promote commerce and to provide revenue for tonnage The object, aside from its patriotic purposes, Is to make the enterprise self supporting a source of revenue to the government. The passage of such bill has been long desired, and brings Joy to all patriots who want to see the American flag flying on the ocean once in awhile over our commerce. It re mains to be seen now what tfie house will do with the case, It is "up to the house" to act. Opposition Is expected from western republican shouters Should the friends of the bill triumph In the conrmltteo and get the bill re ported, the republicans have strength enough in the house to offset the west em Insurgents and pass the bill. SA FEn. One of our most beloved, useful and patriotic citizens who recently passed away used to say that he felt safer on ah ocean liner than in circulating about In the city, and he had crossed ocean many and many a time, and this view Is exactly in keeping with the findings of the experts of the accident Insurance companies, who have figured I out from the reports of their business in New York that the proportion of ac cidents last year was as follows: To pedestrians , 24.14 j At home, indoors 1880 At home, outdoors 15,98 Horses and vehicles ....... is. 16 Recreation 4 17 I Railroad and street car travel 7.51 Other causes .. ...,,. 1124 Total ;. 100.00 It thus appears that one-third of all the accidents to people happen when they are indoors or around the house. on j the outside. It appears ajso that accident com panies write specially lower rates against accidents on railroads or ocean liners than on most any other risks. This seems strange in view o the ter rible accidents at sea or on the rail that one is constantly reading about, but the figures of the ! statistician tell the accurate story as Hi the relative degree of risk involved. One of our oldest Connecticut railroad men who has been back and forth on the railroad for nearly as long a time as the children of Israel were in the wild,ern,egs did npi njeei with an aocl HAVEN MORNING JOUKNAL AND CQURIE& , SATURDAY, FEBRUARY ; 17; dent while on the cars, but as soon as he resigned and abandoned railroad traveling he slipped and fell on toe ice in his dooryard breaking his leg. This illustrates the moral. . JiAPID. The rapid growth of cities' is not wholly confined to this country. Once in a while such a state of things hap pens elsewhere. Take for one instance, the wonderfully rapid growth, in size and prosperity, of Rangoon. Twenty years ago it had a population of only 20,000, whereas to-day it has one or nearly a quarter of a million and a trade inferior only to that of Calcutta and Bombay. The greater part of its growth dates from the extension of Eriiish rule to the upper valley of the Irawaddy. Its docks and wharves and shipyards minister to a seaborne trade which represented In 1904 a value of over $85,000,000 and a steam tonnage of 1,500,000 tons. More than a third of the whole export and import trade of Bur ma passes through Rangoon. The sur plus production of the vast rice fiejds of lower Burma, whose fertile soil in some cases yields as many as three and even four crops in the year, goes to feed the millions of India proper- The oil wells of upper Burma already com pete lr.r-jely with Russian and Ameri can petroleum in the Indian markets. In the great timber yards and sawmills machinery is fast superseding the train ed elephants whose handling of the giant logs floated down from the virgin teak forests of the Burmese highlands used to be one of the sights of Rangoon. The cultivation of cotton Is already full of promise. The finest rubies in the world come from the famous mines of Togok, and the Shan States are begin ning to produce sapphires. rOSTAL 1'KOaitESS. An opportunity will be given our cit izens to-night to help on the movement for a uniform rate of postage for third and fourth class mall matter, restoring the rat for these classes to what It was In .1874,. viz. one .cent for each two ouneEs,' A public meeting In aid of this much needed postal reform will be held this evening at the ChamlKr of Com merce hall. Postmaster General Cortel you, it should be added, urgently rec ommends the proposed consolidation of our double-headed parcels post, saying that the reduced rate on four pound parcels of general merchandise "would afford a great opportunity for distrib uting light packages to a multitude of places not reached by express compa nies, and at a charge sufficient 'to reim burse the government for actual cost of carriage."

St. Nicholas. pUere, To Editor of the Journal and Courier: The length of a man's nose has often measured his material success, as hai the length of a musician's piano siool measured hl& I once knew a musi cian who had a little piano stool Just large enough to plant himself upon when he played his beautiful sonatas, but he always played them to himself. His fame never reached beyond the mice and rats, and why should it have; for when he had a lovely pupil to teach he had to set her in a chair next to his stool, so she was always just too high or just too low to get the tech nique and appreciate atmosphere, ar.d so consequently had no praises to sing of such a teacher. But another musi cian I know read Schopenhauer early in life, and therein discovered that women played as large a part in life as keys on a piano; so he bought a long piano stool, and when he had a lovely pupil to teach dreamy sonatas, he had her sit upon the stool bteklo him, where she could reach the piano keys easily, andln this manner he was able to teach her technique and Inspire her wlth'emo- tlon and atmosphere; so, naturally, his praises are sung far and wide.
