TEN PAGES. SCKANTON, JANUARY 2. 1901. The pnthuslatlc people who havo been endeavoring to talk Mr. Quay out of IlarrlsburR for the past few days arc befjInnlnR to exhibit symptoms of Itu-ynslfmnl lassitude. The Vaccination Fad. "Why not vaccinate by forA, If nccevaryi" Mnglianiton Herald. IT IS "WELt, that the nervous Indi vidual -who wrote the above Is not at large aimed with author ity that would enable him to Htart out Ilka a. branding-Iron expert on u Texas cnttlo ranch and vaccinate till within reach, whether they desire treatment or not. The hysterical Her ald man la no doubt well awaro that thero arc many persons who have Utile fulth In the fjooi results of vaccina tion; who believe that there la greater diingcr In the system of treatment once so popular than In the disease which It Is calculated to prevent. It Is undoubt edly true that In olden times scrofu lous diseases have been disseminated by vaccine virus. Now that nil repu table physicians use the quills dittoed In the bovine product this danger Is lessened, yet In view of the Increase of tuberculosis among cattle nil over the country, there are thousands who would prefer to take a chance with smallpox, which Is no longer necessar ily a fatal complaint, than to risk In noculutlon with the most carefully pre pared vaccine virus upon the market. The talk that people, should be vaccinated In order to protect their neighbors Is all bosh. Vaccination Is calculated to make the subject an Im mune or get his system In condition that will make an attack of smallpox a trilling mutter. The worst cases of smallpox can be contracted from light uses of varioloid. The persons who aiewllllnii to take chances upon small pox should not 'be forced to undergo an operation that they consider more dan Kt'ious, under the Idea that they ate thus Insuring the safety of their neigh burs. While many will probably view with Interest ex-President Cleveland's re cent arstiments In favor of a change of election methods and a longer term for presidents, thero is not likely to be general expression of regret that Mr. Ck-veland'B last term ended on sched ule time. Hunt the Kidnappers. THK ANNOUNCEMENT that the city of Omaha has de cided to take a hand In run ning down the CuelahV kid nappers will no doubt be received with satisfaction everywhere. The sec ond communication received by Mr. Oudahy, In which the writers threat ened to steal his other children In caBe he dlil not withdraw the offer of (23, 000 reward for the captuie of the mis creants, no doubt had much to do In arousing the authorities of Omaha to action. The city councils have offered an amount equal to that which Mr. Cudahy agreed to give and have taken the case from his hands entliely. There will now 'be no restraints placed upon the police In the woik of hunting the men who succeeded In getting a. big ransom from the meat packer and no expense will he spared In the mat tor. The case will be regarded with In terest In every locality and aid should lie granted freely by the public wher ever possible In following the slightest clue that promises to lead to the dis covery of this band of most nefarious of criminals. The effects of the good work accomplished some time ago In tho enpture, conviction and Imprison mont of tho kidnappers of baby Clark, "St New York, will bo to a certain ex tent Impaired If tho Omaha gang Is Allowed to go unpunished. Brigandages must not be allowed to gain a foothold fn this country. ; Dignified silence upon the renewed beef controversy on part of General Miles will no doubt win golden opln. Ions. Philanthropy of 1900. WHILE in many lands the past year has been one of .turmoil, strife and bloodshed, and nt home sharp competition and unusual meth ods of activity In money-getting have nt times had tendency to feed the fancies of tlio chronic pessimist, a bright side of the events of 1900 Is presented In this country which tho Ujitrlotlo citizen may contemplate with .pride. The year Just closed hnsbeon a year of philanthropy that leaves no Joubt as to the generosity of a goodly number of tho fortunate Into whefle hands a kind I'rovldence has JntrustoM tlys bulk of tho wealth of tho land. According to data compiled by the Chicago Tribune, tho benefaction! of tho year In this country to educational Institutions, libraries, churches, art museums and charities amount to tho princely total of $00,261,030. These As ure.a represent the donations down to the end of last week, and the totnl will probably be somewhat Increased dur ing tho present week. Tho sum men tioned nbovo only Includes gifts of $1,060 or moro In each case, so that It tho smaller contributions, together with those of which no records nrc available, were added, the aggregate would doubtless be many millions more, As compared with ISPS, when the benefactions reached tho record breaking total of $79,74?,93G, the re turns for 1900 show a falling oft of something like $19,000,000 or $20,000,000. Hut, with the exception of 1S9P, when the totnl was $'i0,000,000 grenter than the average for each of tho ten years pieccdlng, the returns for this year are $32,000,000 greater thnn thoe for any former year In our history. While Philadelphia greeted the new century with an elaborate electrical display, which In some sections caused the heavens to blnze with light, Scran ton, the original Electric City, bowed her head under lowered street lamps, which blind the vision of tho nocturnal oedestrian and make easier tho call ing 6f tho skulking thug who waits In the shadows for his victim. This cer tainly seems one Instance of taking a step In tho wrong direction. Lake Superior Iron Alines, THE TREMENDOUS expan sion within half a century, of the Iron and copper min ing Industries of tho Lako Superior district, says the Philadel phia Ilecord, Is one of the most mar velous and momentous industrial events of tho century which has Just ended marvelous because of tha vast extent of the mineral deposits and the amazing rapidity with which their development has proceeded, and momentous because In the Iron ranges around the great lake may already be dimly discerned tho seat of Indus trial empire for many years yet to come. It Is tho existence of these rich deposits of Bessemer ores and their practical concentration of Iron and steel producing Interests that havo given American machinery and American inventive genius full play In the markets of the world, until now It Is admitted on nil sides that in the pot distant future, tho undisputed leadership in Iron nnd steel produc tion, with tho mastery over allied Industries which the term Implies, will bo vested in the United States. The figures of Iron ore output from tho Lake Superior ranges con vey, notwithstanding their magni tude, only u partial and incom plete Idea of the volume and sig nificance of production In that quar ter. The true meaning of a yearly output of over 19,000,000 tons of Besse mer ores, following upon an average for tho past ten years of over 10,000,09'J tons annually, is almost beyond com prehension. But It Is clear enough that such capacity for udding to the tnatctlal resources of civilization Is without precedent In history, and ot enormous weight and value In the ac count current of the American people with the beneficent genius of pi ogress. The age of steel has dawned fully with the new century, and Its tri umphs will be won most easily by the purveyors and providers of steel for all nations. It should be noted, In connection with any survey of this vast Iron mining; industry, that the itch deposits on the Canadian side of the lake have scarce ly been touched as yet. The enormous strides of the giant combinations In this country which have heretofore practically monopolized the output of the district havo rendered Canadian capitalists averse to entrance upon a field of industrial effort which seems at the present time to have been pre empted by exclusive right. But this sentiment of Incapability will sooner or later pass away, and then, unques tionably, will begin Canadian competi tion with this country In tho Iron nnd steel making Industry. As the years shall pass and the Old World shall be come accustomed to reliance upon trans-atlantlc sources for supplies of metallic raw material tho play of In dustrial forces on either side of tlw chain of great lakes nnd the.Bt. Law icnce river will constitute a spectacle of absorbing Interest to American statesmen and students of national economics. In view ot the enormous annual re quirements everywhere for steel of various grades the prospect of an enily exhaustion ot high grade ores In tho Lake Superior field Is a matter of gen eral economic concern. Under existing; conditions of human activity the de mand for steel and, hence, for high grado Iron ores must constantly In crease In even greater ratio than the increase of population. Tho world ot Invention is almost feverishly seeking new uses for steel, and every success ful device In a large field of human In genuity Is contingent and dependent upon a never falling supply of this product. Should the oft-repeated fore costs of early exhaustion of tho Mes aba Bessemer ores be realized It might become necessary to recast the entire Industrial horoscopo of the Iron nnd steel Industry In Ameilca during tho twentieth century. The last ambitious crltlo to como to grief appears to have been Mr. Charles Magee, of Philadelphia, who thought to gnln notoriety by becoming Icono clastic over the works of Jnmes Rus sell Lowell. Mr. Magee succeeded In gaining admission to tho Congress of Philological and Archeologlcal soci eties which had been in peaceful ses sion In tho Quaker City and attempted to enliven the meeting by reading a paper on "Literary Manners of the Nineteenth Century." The paper was a vicious attack upon the vrltlne0; of Poet Lowell, formerly president of tho societies, whoso gems of thought were characterised as "mere babblings." The paper made a hit, but not In tho way that was expected. Instead of making indignant protests that would arouse a controversy, tho majority of tho audience made a stampede for tho exits, while those who remained greeted the efforts of tho crltlo with Immoder ate laughter, and the young man was finally obliged to retire, In confusion. Aside from having his portrait printed In tin local papers, Mr, Magee achieved no fame from his nttempt to stir up tho congress of thinkers. Tho latest citizen to receive at tention on account of having lived In thrco centuries Is n. woman who halls from Cincinnati nnd claims to be 122 years old. It Is evident from numer ous reports from different localities about the country that old people, or liars, are rapidly Increasing In num ber. The fact that the new emneror ot China Is only fifteen years of ago doubtless accounts for his ncccptanco of the position. Past experience ought to convince nny well-balanced Celostlnl that official business In tho yellow kingdom Is moro dangerous than foot ball. Nikola Tesla, tho electrical Inventor, announces that he will explain a new discovery at a wntch-meetlng In Chi cago tonight. Nikola evidently does not propose to leave anything for the inventors of the twentieth century to accomplish In tho line of electricity. The recent Baltimore bank failure Is about the only thing that has hap pened to comfort Mr. Bryan since elec tion. When France is short for excitement it always has the Dreyfus case to fall back on. Outline Studies of Httman Nature The Super's Revenge. AMJPKIIKUMr.It.VRY In Klchard Mansfield's company who had been, to u a Scotch phrae, continuous and continually "neckled" by the manager nt rehearsals and between the acts for alleged dlnplajs of stupidity on the tago was Informed that a near relative of hto had departed this life nnd had left him a compe tence, jo ho decided to leave tho dramatic pro fession nnd, to quote him, become respectable, relates the Chicago Chronicle. Defore leaving he determined to take his revenge on Mansfield for tho attacks on bis amour piopre that gentleman hail nude. The play was "Rlcluinl III." and the super was one of the soldiers who leads away tho Duke of Ilucklngham when the king orders Ids demise. In due time ltlchard remarked: "Off with his head!" and this was the super's opportunl). Ad vancing, he touched lit helmet In the stylo of a footman and replied loudly and genially: "That'll bo attended to, old chap. Weil take care of old lluck.Itil bo all right!" and re tired gracefully. When the Infuriated Mansfield came off (o commit murder ho found the super had fled. The Cost of a Duke. A ORhK.SPO.NDKNT of London M. A. P. IcIH a story of the Duchess of Montrose, whose beauty is no less renowned than her philan thropy. The scene was a hazuar where the due li es was wiling photoguphs. One old Scotch woman who was Aery anxious to secure .1 photo graph of the duchessi but the price asked was the shillings. The old woman hesitated. She wanted the photograph, but could not well af ford so much. "You can have my husband." said the duchess, with an amused glance at the duke, standing near, "for two-and-slx-pence." The vvould-bo purchaser looked at the duke and then at his photograph contemptuously. "Half-a-erovvnl" she blurted out. "f vvouldna' ghe a silver saxpenco for him. Hut," she added Insinuatingly, "I am right willing to give haul-a-eioon for your bonnie scl" The duchess was unable to resist this, and hertolf added the o...ir half-crown to the bazaar coders, or, as another version of the story goes, the dc-plscd duke proflcrcd the balance. Took Him In Tow. FRANK LINCOLN, the cheery Ainciican humor ist, who has been entertaining Londoners nt the Palace, tells a capital story of the compul sory hospitality he once received in one of tha western states, relates London M. A. P. Arriv ing on a bitterly cold winter day, he was met nt the station by a grave, long-visaged Scotch deacon. "You'll hap to bide wl' me. said tho deacon. "Pray, allow me to stop nt the hotel," replied Mr. Lincoln, knowing by experience the discomfort! of being "entertained." "No! A the Iccturirs bide wi' me. You're the foiulh. The bailiff cam doon on the first Mie for the door filler. The second ane drank we'll hae nae drlnkln' herd The third ane was seen spcakln' to a stranger, n young leddy, on the cars. Noo jou look a' llcht, but we're no to take ony rlks. You'll bide wl" me, and I can keep .111 t'e 011 jou!" Then He Spoke Up. COl'NSKL I InsUt 011 an answer to my ques tion. You have not (old me all the con versation. I want to know ever) thing that passed between you and Mr. Jones on this occa sion to which you refer. Ibluctant Witness I've told jou everything of any consequence. "You havo told me that jou said to him: 'Jones, this case will get into the court some eliy.' Now- I want to know what ho said in re- ply." "Will, ho said: 'Drown, thcie isn't anjthlng in this buslne-s that I'm ashamed of, and if any snoopln", llitle, jcchawln', fourby-slx, gimlet ejed law-jer, with halt a pound of In a Ins and six teen pounds of Jaw-, ever wants to know what I've been talkln' to jou about, you can tell him the whole story." Tit-Bit. Greatness Not Appreciated. TACK" WILSON, whose tomb Is in the I,lt J tic Clolsteis at 'etmliistcr Abbey, was Shakespeare's tenor. He died at the age of "H, In 1073, The Inscription on Ids tomb at the Ab bey was much obliterated, and under tho direc tion of nn antiquary a man waj employed to re cut the latleis, sajs Pearson's Weekl-, The antiquary stood looking over him so that ho should make no mistake, and to make the time, go pleasantly, he dwelt at great length to the woikmaii upon tho grandeur and merits of tha deceased. The man eventually stopped his work, and, looking up at the antiquary, said: "I wl.h, sir, that we bad known that be was such a swell afoie we run that there draln-plpo through him!" No Change. TN A sheflield workshop, when the men alwent- cd themselves, they were expected to produce a doctoi'i ccrtillcnte, An Irishman, absent, however, on a second oc casion, and told to bring his certificate, gavo In tho ono used before.

" THE WORLD jtjjkjWjfi ONE HUNDRED YEARS' AGO TODAY", Jtjjjtj, (Copyright, 1XK), by R. E. Hughes, Louis ville.) TT11E FlItsT iron tramroad was built in Great Britain from Craydon to Wandsworth. A few mouths prior to this Mr. Benjamin Out jam (for whom these roads were named, the abbreviation for Outram to tramroids coming later) had made great Improvements In this sys tem of railways for common vehicles, then in 100 in Northern England. The first lectures on medicines in England were dellveied. I'p to this time foicnlc medi cine seems to have been entlely neglected in Orcat Britain. The modern school of medicine the adoption ot the methods ot research of physical science and the gradual declining Im portance attached to theory and abstract reason ingdales from this period also. Hypotheses, though not neglected, were still used as means of research rather than as ultimate conclu sions. Tlio growth of the new school was first seen In France nncl in England. Corvisort, a French ph)slclan, was the first nt this time to make practical use of Aucnrug gcr's invention of percussion to determine the size ot the heart. Young's grandiet contribution to the wave theory of light, on which Is based the whole doctrine of Interference, was made in his Baker Ian lecture In England. Tills was the beginning ot that wonderful series of researches which secured the undulatory theory. Young's discov ery was made by reflecting on the beautiful ex periments of Newton. He believed that as a law It accounted for a gieater variety of Inter esting phenomena than any other optical prin ciple made known up to tiut time. In England one of the first an! bet things ot n century that gave promise of surpassing in evciy way all its predecessors was the modi fication of the private inilosurc acts, whereby more ot tha common ground than ever before was biought under cultivation. Increase in popu lation and the growing need for food producing land made it tho Intcrrf.t of the lord as well as the public to utilize the commons. Ilia country which many )cars later foimed Orange Free State, in South Africa, was now inhabited by sections of aboriginal tribes Bushmen, Korannos and Bechuanos, and a chronic state of warfare began between them and a number of Crlquas from tha northwest of Capo Colony, who had coma among the former. The development of the resources of the Ar gentina Republic, so long thwarted, was allow ed comparatively lice play. m Paris had her second national exposition, the first having been held three years before. Tho first )cir of tho century gave tn the world many men ami women who ascended high the ladder ot fame. Among tha births weie the following! Thomas Fisher, American author.
