The growth of The Times' circulation Indicates that the public is quick to eom prthend that it Is better to read the latest news twice a day than to subscribe for the old-fashioned dally and get it only once In every twenty-four hours. The novelty of having half of a rewspapcr dillvcred in the morning before break fast and the other half after work is over, in the evenrg is provinfr extremely popu lar. Kach half of The Times delivered in this way contains the latest news up to the moment of going to prebs, and none of it Is over twelve hours old. The Times also publishes a Sunday edition that Is complete and Interesting. In addition to Its special matter, 11 fur nishes the news, foreign, domestic and local, up to 3 o'clock Sunday morning, and is therefore much more desirable than a newspaper that has only six editions a week. For CO cents a month, or 1 " 3 cents a day, The Times will supply readers with a morning and evening edition of eight pages each and a mammoth Sunday edition of twenty pages. No oilier news paper In the world ever offered so much news for so little money. FOR A IlETTER SEWUII STSTEIL The executive committee of the Hoard of Trade has been prompt in calling the at tention of the Commissioners to the In crease of t j phoid fever in certain sections of the city, at d the apparent necessity of a better sewer system. The Times has on several occasions insisu-d that tlio subject should be thoroughly" investigated But there are economical as well as sanitary reasons Tor urging that tins question be handled with prudence, and the Ccmmis Eioncrs should be careful how they make recommendations for improving streets and increasing our sevrer capacity. The growth and extension of Washing Son demands belter sewage system. This Is conceded by all clatEes of citizens. It Is necessary to preserve tLe health and well oeing of tLe public, and after carefully as certaining how far such an improvement can go without entering into the sclieni -s af speculators the Commissioners should act accordirgiy. During the last Congress, when the District bond bill for street and lewer improvement was up for discussion, the impression prevailed that about half tbe amount demanded was forthe improve ment of private property. If the then current rumor Is true tuch an attempt to divert public fin ds to private uses should he prevented, and for that reason the sub ject of a Lord lean should be thoroughly ventilated. The entire community will unite in in dorsing all legitimate improvements In Washington. They not only make property more valuable and Improve its appearance, but they belter the condition of the public, nils agitation for Improvements, however, bbuld not be made to conceal the disignof chemlng sj collators. Tor that reason the Commissioners should be careful. HEAT. r-ATRIOTlSir. In concluding his reply to the welcom ing address of the Hon. John W. Douglass yesterday Mayor Warwick said: "God rrant that this bell may be the means of Bringing Georgia nearer to I'cnnsvlvanla and I'cnitsvlvania nearer lo Georgia and South Carolina." This was evidently, in eloquent paragraph from his Atlanta lddress, or the sentiment would have been juade to apply to the North and South In , iteadof torcnns)IvanlaandGeorgla. The word "liberty,," connected with the old bell that announced the birth of a great nation, always awakens patriotic thoughts andjnsplrcs a feeling that as a people we have much to be thankful for. Compared to the rest of tbe world we not only "Joy great freedom through our excellent form of government, but arc also more abundantly blessed with natural te iourues,whlcb should give each industrtru person a comfortable living. It will require patience and good Judgment, however, to prepare tbo way for all to prosper, and Instead of trying to bring States nearer to each other, as Indicated byiltyor Warwick, we should unite In leveling social conditions and In bringing our abandanco within tho teach of tbo struggllrg masses. That should be the popular, patriotic sentiment. Time and business enterprise will bring both States and communities nearer to each other. It requires no liberty bell to ring the way to closer trade relations when there is wealth in sight and mines and for ests to conquer. The hum of factory wheels and the chink of dollars are more potent In establishing friendship between opposing sections than the sweetest note of freedom that ever greeted the down trodden, tor money, money, is the ruling power. It is that power whteh grai-ps our opportunities and puts off iremascawlihthccrumbs that arelefc, and lo find a way to more nearly equalize conditions should be the subject of our patriotic efforts. More equal conditions would result In more general prosperity. Therefore we should endeavor to bring the extremes of society nearer to each other instead of troubling ourselves about the different States. The more general this desideratum becomes, thesooner It wlllbe brought about, and the text of every liberty bell sentiment after this should be the ringing out of the extremes of society and the bringing within reach of all tho great opportunities thl. country afford. THE MONROE DOCTRINE. It is confidently expected that the ulti matum sent to England by Secretary OIney on the Venezuelan question will finally decide tbe cxisti ncc of the Monroe doctrine. That widely-talked of instrument has been much Interpreted and little understood. It is generally supposed to ben mortgage of South America and Central America held by the United States and to be foreclosed only when a foreign nation undertakes to collect a debt or to take possession of terri tory lo satisfy a claim It also has a sort of a liberty bell attachment that jingoes every time a little Ilrc-eatlng republic gets into trouble, and in contequenee Uncle Sam Is kept busy warning Europe that he has a Monroe title to ever thing south of the United States except real estate and per sonal property, which, however, mubl not be Interfered Ith. Wlmn Great .Britain has time to fully masticate the diplomatic pill Secretary OIney has administered she will find It an extremely bitter doe. Bat, In order not to make her swallow It all at once, he has given- It In two parts, of whiili she t.he can take her choice. Secretary OIney declares It to be the belief of this govern ment that Great Britain Is attempting V seize territory on the American continent to which she has no legal right, and lays the question before her in tho following propositions: First It the qunrrel with Verezuela Li an ordinary boundary dispute, having Its origin lu faulty description, hniwrfe-ct surveys or other misunderstandings, a refusal to arbitrate the i.ame Is contrary to pre-edents set by Great brltain her..lf ard contrary to the practice of all civilized nations. be.-ond If, on the other hand, asappears to b2 the case, nnd as Is the Ix'lief of the President or the United States, tliedlsputo as to the location of a boundary line is a mere disguise under which Gre-at Britain Is attempting by superior for-e to extend her territorial possessions in America, this Is directly loI.uiu of the Monroe doctrine, and will neer be submitted to by the United States. The question now for Great Britain to consider is whether it shall be a Dcn raven fluke, an arbitration of tbe bound ary dipnteor ironclads and coffee. Meantime we are finding out that the Monroe doctrine is a species of a trust deed on everything in sight but Canada, for which we neither give nor receive an equivalent. TURNED DOWN. The people of Snutli Washington have gotten cold comfort from the Commis sioners In the matter of the garbage crematory. They have been politely, but none the less decisively, informed tliat their protest amounts to nothing, and if that does not salt them they can go to court and try tlulr luck nt law. Terhaps they will do so, perhaps nft; bt cause litigation of this sort Is quite an expensive luxury. But they will probably reason, as they have set forth in their remonstrance, that the crematory would deteriorate the value of their projierly, and chat It Is worth the while to make an effort to prevent this. It would seem that In arriving at their decision the Commissioners have consulted the convenience ot the contractor rather than the property Interests and com Tort ot the people of South Washington. Yet one would think that it matters far less to have the contractor's carts go a some what longer distance than to Injure the property values of a whole section of the city. The decision ot the Commissioners Is the more unfortunate because, as The Times recently poicted out. South Wash ington has been heretofore ami under the different forms of local government treated In a sort of step motherly fashion. In spite of all assurances given by the Commissioners that the crematory will not prove a nuisance, either to the health or the comfort or the people in that neighborhood, there is a strong suspicion that they ore entirely too confident on this point. At any rate, as The Times has already suggested, there are plenty lo calities on the confines of the District where the objections to this establish ment would be reduced to a minimum.

WOULD AVOID MANY EEROES Correct T-tres for Speed nnd Dctnll of Dlsipluci-nient Could Ho Obtain ed Hcfw Tlic-o l'olnts Aro Worked Out by till? Nnvnl Constructors of tilt) United btutes. A subject that has cngageil the attention of naval experts for a number of years. Is the testing ot naval vessels In advance of their construction. Experimental tanks, as they aro called, have been established In almost every country in Europe, In which the models of both war and commerce ships are subjected lo preliminary trials as to their Bpecd, stability, friction, and turning qualities before tbe work of actual construction Is begun. England, France, Germany nnd Italy test their mode-Is in this manner, and these experiments have been found to be of great value. The construction department of the navy ot this country has been trying for several years to secure the establishment of such an experimental tank at the Navy Yard here, where the models otivarshlps could beglven a trial, tosettlelinixirtantqucstlons In connection with the construction. A recommendation was first made by Chief Constructor Wilson, who asked for an appropriation ot SGO.000 for that pur pose. Congress has so far never been "induced, however, to consider the question. Chief Constructor FJillip Hlchborn, how ever, the successor to Constructor Wilson, has made detailed reports to tbe head of the department, and the next Congress will bo asked for an appropriation of $100,000 for the purpose of buildlug an experimental tank at the Washington Navy Yard, lu the slip between the old shlphouse and the main branch of the Potomac. COST OF THE TANK. In an interview Willi Chief Constructor Hlchborn, he said that Hie Bureau de sired to renew niwt earnestly previous recommendations In relation toltlie es tablishment of an experimental tank. "One ot the greatest obstacles cn cosntired by this Bareau In designing ves sels," said that gentleman, "is the de termination of a reasonably exact pced which can bo obtalued with a ship of known displacement, horse-power, and underwater form. At present our only data for such puriwes is derived from more or less Inaccurate reports of the performance ot foreign vessels, and is nccessaril very unsatuf.ictory. "The Bureau in the liast has not even had the Iwuefit of experience gained from thorough and cxhauntlve speed trials of our own ships, exigencies of the service usually preventing a complete series ot jirogre-ssive speed trials, such as have Yen found ot so much value In other services. Tho lack of reliable data, which can only be accurately obtained from these two sources, his bamiiered the Ilurvau in Its previous design work, and placed it at a decided disadvantage In fixing upon the approximate speed to be ex pected from any glve.i design. 'Thcconuiiercinlvalucofaiiexpcrlmentnl tank," continued the chief constructor, "has bcenwelldcmonstratcdbytheexpiTJcnceot a private establishment on the Clyde, which has had ono inope ration for ten years. Aside from the scientific value of the In formation derived, they claim that it lias been tho m'-arri ot saving them thousands ot do'.la rs by enabling them to determine ac curalely the best form of ship to attain a certain speed, the dimensions of the ship being determined by certain definite con siderations." BEGAN IN ENGLAND. Expcruii-els to determine the resistance of ship3 in advance of construction by towing models of the pre posed ships, were nmimoM-vtl by the late I)r Wlili.im Kroi.dc, in 1872, In a lai'kbJilt by hliuat Torquay. Tins tank was 2e0 fe.'tlong, 3G feet wide, and lOfcetdeep. andliiltexperiineiitSTi-ere carried on for tl.e Adm-fllity, and in con nection with the towing exiiernicnts of the Greyhound, certain laws and deductions were established beyond question. Since the death of Dr. Froude in 1S70 tlio work has been carried on by his son, R. E. Froade, and many useful and valuable results have been obtained. The designs ot many proposed ships have been altered after model trials, notably in the case of the Polyphemus and the Medway class of gun boats, the deductions being afterward verified by the performance ot the vessels. In 1882 a tnnkof atout tie tame dimen sions, and with practlcajly identical ap plianccs, were constructed by Denny Bros., ot Dunbarton, in which many thousands of experiments have been conducted -with both engineering and commercial euc cess, the tank having cnubled tliem, as the case in point, lo successfully construct a high speed vessel for the Belgian gov ernment under cordilions so rigid, that under ordinary circumstances surety ot fulfilling them would have been impos sible. The establishment of an experimental tank would not only benefit the naval service, but would greatly promote the shipbuilding interests ot the country at large, by furnishing reliable information as to tbe future performance of new types of commercial vessels, that would aid American shipbuilders to compete on more equal terms with foreign yards In which similar information is already available. MADE A LAUGE OUTLAY. The British admirably considered the results obtained so valuable that in 18S6 a new tank was constructed at Haslar, near Portsmouth, and the apparatus at Torquay was removed to that place, and Installed there with many improvements and additions under the charge of Mr. R. E. Froude. The latest apparatus constructed Is that installe-d by the Russian government, at St. Petersburg, In 1S82. To duplicate such a plant, including cost ot all appara tus and the necessary baildings, but ex clusive, of ground, would cost about 585, 000. The experiment may develop the fact that the; intended lines produce an abnor mally high resistance, or are in some other way unsuitable In which case the model la easily altered or a new one made, and the ship saved from probable failure. In conilucting the experiments abso lute nicety of observation and measure ment are required. The model Is care fully ballasted to the exact drart and trim to cornspond with the proposed displacement. These factors are observed by inserting needles at Intervals around the proposed water line projecting hori zontally, and the model is adjusted so that all the needles Just break the water. In this condition the weight ot the model, plus the ballast, should agree with the calculated displacement. In towihg. the change of trim is carefully observed and automatically registered by the machine and exact observations of the currents, caused by the drafts of air and by the movement of the model are made, and the general deductions cor rected therefore. The models are made of paraffine wax; . material which seems well adapted for DR. WALKER'S RECORD It Is certainly abrilllnnt record of cures that stands to Br.

' They are cast In a cay mould made to cross sections of tbe proponed Hues, al lowing about a quarter of an inch around for finishing. They are cured to allow a finished thickness of about one Inch. The core Is formed of a wooden f ramevrorfc covered wllh cloth and coated with a so lution of clay to make It impervious to the melted paraffiuc, and Is filled with water to prevent It being floated on the liquid wax, which Is cast at a temperature of about 100 degrees. After cooling tbe model is placed In a specially devised machine, by which the Hues of the half-breadtli plan of the' pro posed ship are. automatically copied on lwth sides of the model at their respective heights above the keel. The model Is r'g idly held lu a frame capable of vertical adjustment, and after being carefully set to the prnpi-r Height for the 1- to be cut. the attendant simply passes a tracer around the line in the drawing, which is placed on theattuchc-ddrawiug lioanl. The cutting is accomplished by two ro tary cutters which are run at a high rale of speed, and connected by a paiitograph gear with the tracing arm. In this way the raccesulve Hue are cut, nnd the model Is then taken from the machine, the ma terial beween the lines is removed and the model faired and smoothed by baud.

In a Pullman carcn 'i-eMai.hcster,Ehef-fleld and Lincolnshire railway the other week a young traveler noticed an old, whitc-tcarde-d gentleman trying to pet Into a light dust-coat. The jouig man rushed lo bis atsjlance, and in helping him with the garment noticed a good sized wlusky flask protruding from one of tLe pockets Being of a waggish nature he appropriated the bottle, helped the ttrargcr on with his coat und then pulling out the Hank said: "Will ycu take a drink?" The old man did not recognize the bottle, and drawing himself up icmarke-d, rather severely "No, sir, I never drink." "It won't hurt you," insisted tLe wag. "It's the best." "Young man," said tbe old gentleman, speakirg loud enough forall In the carriage to bear, "ir you persist in drinking whisky you will be a ruined man at 40 It Is the curse of the land When I w as a bo mother (led, and the last thing sl.l did was to call me to ber bedside and say: " 'John, premise me that you will never touch a drop of liquor. " "Oh, well. In that cnte," said the Joker, "I must drick it myscir," w hereupon, suit ing the action to the words, he pulled the cork out and took a gcod drink. A moment later be dropped the bottle with an exclamation which certainly didn't Eourd like a blessing, and yelled out: "Ughl ugh my moth's all raw ."

I'AULOVITCH'S DOGS. Itusslmi Itanclininti Who Fur Outstrip-, tin-America ii Article. Valdeniar Faulovitch, a yours Ku&sLin, who 'was recently nt a Eutfalo hotel, told an Express reporter some interest Ins facts about Gustav Jovanovitch, w ho owns more do-s and fleas than any other man in the worid. Jovanovitch is tbe cattle Ling of the Russian steppes. He owns over 1,500,000 sheep, and that Is why he has so many doss. They are all of the bhrpherd breed, and number aliova 35,0UO. Jovanovitcn's sheep and dnsrs have descended to him from his forefathers and, needless to say, he is immensely rich. The dogs are all intelligent creatures, though ota hui.dred breeds, and all perform their offices as faithfully as tbe mo-t petted shepherd dos of the New York faniu. "You can imagine that it costs a great deal of money to feed such a number ot animals," said Mr. I'aulovitch. "They are well kept and fed, else they would b forced to turn on their flocks. Jovanovitch has great barn liUe structures for the dogs" shelter, and scores ot men to care for them. Great core ot the brutes' health is taken, and a dog rarely goes mad. The millionaire sheep owner bays doc biscuit by the ton InFrancetoguardagainst distemper. Fleas, ot course, are a necessity anions tuch a great number of dogs, though sulphur baths are provided for their extrnulnntlon. "Tbe fleas, however, not only pay the expenses of the baths, but put quite a bit ot money Into tbe pockets of tbe dog keepers. In St. I'elersburK there is a great demand nmons tbe wealthy for performing fleas, but only the bigge-st and most In telligent are fitted for the work. Of course, among 35,000 dogs one has a great choice ot fleas, and Markovitch, the head dog keeper, has a corner ou the performing flPiniarket. r he big, muscular, well groomed and Intelligent fleas which hesenilstothecapltal are taught to perform little tricks. They dance, too, aud I have heard that one flea, whlchcould skip aspiderwebrope. was sold to one of tho court ladles for 2,000 rubles. Performln; fleas, once taken from nature's home, become very delicate and have to bo housed and fed with thegrcatest care. "The Czar once went to visit Jovanovitch at his great house on thesteppes, and joked with him about his dogr, asking It he was acquainted with all ot them. For answer the sheepman led him to the door and blow a blast on his hunting horn. Then from the long thatched kennels that were spread for n quarter of a mile around there arose a howl in unL-on from each ot the 33,000 dogs, nrd before it had died out 1-10,000 feet wcie flying over the ground In the direction ot Jovanovitch and his royal master. "When they reachcil the place all lay down obediently, so that the ground was covered with a mat ot dogs fur a great distance. Come, your majesty. said Jovanovitch, 'the ground Is damp, but my dogs have made jou a carpit." Ard the Czar and "Ills friend walked out to tbe kennels over the strong brutes. "The Czar sent Jovanovitch a decora tion," concluded Mr. Faulovitcb,. "and ho fed the 3r.000 dogs on Hamburg steaks out ot gralllude.'- At the UutcherM.
