Schuyler Van Rcnuclter con tributes to tho Century a paper on "Place In Now York," In tho course of which she says: If you enter one of the largest office buildings and go up and down and around In It, you will see that It is not a mere house, but almost town In Itself. It nearly covers the apace of an entire city block. Thirty two elevators serve the persons and the wants of Its denliens and their visitors, and they carry some forty thousand passengers each day. The great busi ness concern which owns It fills a whole floor, with balls as big as churches, and regtmnets of clerks. On the other floors llvo many another big company. and many an Individual doing a big business of this sort or of that: and their number will not amase you much as the luxury with which prosaic tasks of money-making now surround themselves. I wonder sometimes what my grandfather would have thought of It No one in New York did business In a bigger way than he, sending bis fa mous clipper ships to encircle tho world and traffic In a score of ports, Yet when my father began to "clerk" for him, the first of bis duties was to sand his office floor; and I can remom ber bow small and plain was this office, even b a much later day, with the bow spnts of vessels almost poking mem elves la at the window as they lay Jew the border of South street. The people who dwell la the typtsal office bmudlng of to-dajr wan about on polished marble floors; the Government has given them a postofflce Just for themselves; a Wg library and a restau rant exclusively serve) ths lawyers among them; another ranttnsVMt gener ously serves wbbauoeve xMSkTansii to MSA to S ta2 tbiasV eat; there are rows of .ajgM lit huge, barrel-vaulted mala hall; are barbest? rooms and aaotbl rootns:ajulsofanhaa4aesav Yoa almost believe tluUamttaiattflfct live la his bnlidUa aM flsflk osujr to sleep, aad being ajB&jjsmreMa much varrtk'kHPgBti exqept the theater, 'it aaaBBf msBtr aotprUIng, indeefl, that a sjnMajsjajrjr chapel baa not toaaUrtsi fta oat f It corners, and asasfsraMl tor daytime perform- anceasaMs mt ftlutop called its roor, Mam yoa may find the aatafls our weather for Hm!fa IBB Its underground sto- i very entrails of earth, you ty confidently leave It your wealth to guard.

Of course there are rows and rows of little cabi nets where Croesus may handle his wealth very privately, and fine largo waiting-rooms, too, all shut In by gates and ban and passwords.

In It General Harrison gives this laterest Ing view of the worktags'ot Congress; "A majority of each home, aader the Constitution, continues a quorum for tho transaction of business. If a quorum Is not present, and that fact Is disclosed by a yea and nay vote, busi ness must stop until a quorum Is so cured. But the members present are empowered by the Constitution to ad journ from day to day and 'to compel the attendance of absent members, In such manner, and under auch penalties aa each House may provide.' A great deal af business la done In both the Sen ate saafl House when a quorum la not presajat, the absence of a quorum not being officially disclosed by a roll-call. The Sergeant-at-arms Is not an Infre quent attendant at social receptions and dinars; but always an unwelcome one when, be comes to demand the at tendant at truant Senators or mem. bora upa their respective houses.

"Tho movement for realism In litera ture has given to tho best current Ac tion a verity and valuo as a reflection of tho times that tho novels of no other era possess," writes "Droch" in tho Ladles' Home Journal. "This is not saying, by any means, that our uovel Ists aro greater than any of previous epoens. ut nover beroro could a reader of fiction accumulate a vivid, truo and varied picture of so many sides of human nature, so many condt- 1 tlons Of actual life.

Reported Discovery Which Mnksn Lon Distance Koads Possible. Tho last obstacle to the gradual sub stitution of electricity for steam as tho motive power for railway travel seems to havo been removed. Engineers who havo been working for years In the development of electric motors havo at last reported tho success of what Is known as the alternating current sys tem, as distinguished from the direct current system now In universal use on trolley lines In cities. Experiments with the alternating current system havo demonstrated that It can bo used on long-dlstanco electric lines at a cost much below tho Installation and opera tion of steam motors for like distances. Tho first commercial demonstration of tho feasibility of tho new system Is to bo niado on a lino between Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, Mich., early In tho present season, and contracts havo also been let for a long-dlstanco lino between Detroit and Port Huron, Mich., to bo equipped with the alternat ing current system. Tho great saving as between tho present and tho now system Is In tho cost of copper wlro for Installation. Tho system now used on trolley lines everywhere Is a low volt ago and direct current, requiring an Immense amount of wire, that Increas es In amount proportionately to tho length of the lino. Tho expense of this Installation has hitherto prevented active competition with tho steam roads, Tho alternating current system carries a high voltage on the main feed wire and at intervals along the line tho current is deflected Into transform ers which rcduco tho voltago to a uni form power, which Is taken up by tho car motors, Tho alternating system can be Installed, the engineers say, at a cost which will render It Impossible for steam roads to successfully com pete. The advantage to tho public In a general substitution of electricity for team will bo In Improved and cheap er service. Smaller trains and more of them will be the rule, as It Is cheap er to run at frequent intervals with out waiting for heavy loads, as tho Steam roads do. Tho lessened cost of operation will, undoubtedly reduce fares, especially where, as In all like lihood, there will bo active rivalry be tween competing roads. Tho engin eering departments of tho steam roads which maintain special suburban ser vices nro said to bo ready to forestall this competition by equlpplug their suburbnn Hues with electricity. Somo of tho roads running out of Chicago nro expected to make this change dur ing tho present year. It will doubtless bo but a question of tlmo when tho trip from Chicago to Now York enn bo mndo bv dnvllclit in from eight to ten hours. Tho electrical engineers say they nro now ready to furnish motors that will dovelop a sus tained speed of from 100 to 150 miles nn hour. Tho resources of railroad en gineering must now bo concentrated on tho development of roadbeds and run ning gear that will meet tho speed ca pacity of tho electric motors. Chicago Chronicle.

Sanitarium. REFORM IN PINNER.QIVINO. Simple Dinners Are Now Considered the BlSRsnt Dinners. "A dinner engagement, no matter whether the dinner be large ,or small, formal or Informal, Is tho most exact ing of social obligations," writes Mrs. S. T. Rorer In the Ladles' Homo Jour nal "Indeed, I always feel a doublo senso of obligation when Invited to a small dinner. In selecting the guests for the small dinner choose thoso who aro congenial. If among young friends you number physicians, lawyers or poli ticians do not Invite one of each class, nor all of one class, simply becauso their professions are tho same, but se lect congenial spirits. Ten small din ners, well arranged, are much more en joyable than one large conventional dinner served to sixty Ill-selected peo ple. Tho food Is better, scrvlco better and digestion better, and even when trained help cannot bo employed tho hostess may enjoy the occasion ns well as the guests. The art of dining, re member, Is quite apart from the art of giving dinners. "A reform In dinner-giving Is being Instigated. Simple dinners are now 'the elegant dinners.' Tho man who has studied the art of living lives fru gally. A hostess must never forget that during tho short time her guests aro under her roof abe la responsible for their happiness and comfort. A hugo dinner of twelve courses of badly blend ed food Is not conducive to either. 8a varin said, The dlnner-tablo Is a placo where men are never bored for the first hour;' tho Insinuation that a second would prove a bore la rather promi nent. If people In the ordinary walks of life are to make auch entertainments a success they must never try now or elaborato dishes, or even new ways of serving; they should simply add an extra plato or two to tho usual number, and Invito their friends." Unchristian Names. ,It Is curious bow Inconsistent ne tho prejudices of people In regard to tho uso of heathen names. Mr. Payn, In his "Gleams of Memory," tells an amusing story of tho lato Denn Bur gon, who objected to tho namo of tho goddess of beauty, but found no fault with that of tho god of tho woods. An Infaut was brought to tho church for christening, and tho namo proposed for It was "Vanus." "Vanus?" repeat ed tho dean. "I suppose you meau Venus. Do you Imaglno I am golug to call a Christian child by that name, and least of all a malo child?" The father of tho Infant urged that ho only wished to uamo It after his grandfather. "Your grandfather!" cried tho dean. "I don't believe It. Where Is your grandfather?" Ho was produced; a poor old soul of eighty or so, bent double, and certainly uot look ing In tho least like the goddess In question. "Do you mean to tell mo, air, that any clergyman ever christened you 'Vanus,' as you call It?" "Well, no, sir; I was christened Syl vanus, but they alwaya called me 'Va nus.'" Eats Sugared Oysters.

A Phase of Modern City Life Which Will Amane Many la the Country. Tho time Is approaching when house keeping, aa our grandmothers under stood It, will become a lost art, says the San Francisco Argonaut. There waa a day when the model housewife spun ber own linen and dipped her own candles. Then she advanced to tho tage of a frivolous disregard of these accomplishments, and bought her lin en and ber candles, but knit ber chil dren's stockings and bad a still-room full of Jams and plcklea of her own making. To-day abe would no moro make her pickles than she would un dertake to build the bed she sleeps on. Tho craft of housekeeping, which In the eyes of our grandfathers waa our grandmothers' most considerable at traction, Is to-day almost extinct. In tho great cities things are so ar ranged that It Is posslblo to llvo com fortably In your own apartment with out any of the friction of household management which has turned so many heads white and ruffled the peace of so many hearths. In any city an apartment of from three rooms up can be hired for from twenty to two hundred dollars a month. This can be made habitable by furniture Jobbers at twenty-four hours' notice. The Janitor, tho laundryman, and the livery-stable keeper are at band, ready to proffer their services. Each apartment-house has Its own corps of these supernumer aries, who are willing, for a considera tion, to lighten the burden of the house wife. Close at band, If not In the build Ing Itself, Is a cafe, where good meals are served at all hours. When there are row children In the family, the cafe la generally patronised. If the house hold, consists of only Darby and Joan, and they happen to be young and act ive, they dispense wltb the services of this convenient caterer, make their own breakfast in their rooms, and go out to different restaurants for lunch and dinner. Those who wish to have the privacy of home life at their meals can find a waiting crowd of butchers, bakers, and grocers, who eagerly offer price-lists and pass-books, and will un dertake to procure and serve whatever may be desired, if tho objects of their attentions will undertake to pay the bills they send In. Even that tough est of housekeeping problems, the servant-girl question, Is reduced to Us smallest possible Importance, for In Buch a stylo of living few servants are needed. In fact, where the family Is small, it Is posslblo to dispense with tbom entirely, as the Janitor and ele-vator-boy attend to the outside work, and any house-cleaning association will furnish a reliable charwoman as often and as early ns can be required. Altogether, the modern woman Is having things mado as easy for her as possible. In ten years she will no more think of dusting ber own room than of making her own shoes. Even that most unanswerable problem, what shall she do with her children? Is rap Idly solved. There aro now day nur series for the children of working women, where a child Is taken care of for from ten to twenty cents a day. The time Is at hand when Institutions of this kind, well-run and high-priced, will be on every block, superseding the old nursery of the domestic regime. In all probability the child will be bet ter cared for than It was when left to tho charge of an Ignorant mother and an Irish nurse-girl. Whether, however, tho arrangement will be satisfactory to tho mother herself Is another side of the matter. It will take a good deal of civilization to transfer tbo maternal lustlnct from the Individual to tho race, No two thermometers ever had the same opinion about the weather.
