Little David's Example.

to a Philadelphia kindergarten

of an animal of the order of edentata

"I can," cried little David, his face

Paint From Mummies.
Ground-up mummy makes a brown
of a certain rare color that nothing
else can give. It is on account of the
asphaltum in that mummy that this is
60. The Egyptians wrapped their dead
in garments coated witn aspnaituin
of an incomparably fine and pure quality.
This asphaltum, as the centuries
passed. Impregnated the tissues of the
dead themselves. It turned them into
the best paint materials in the world
Being exceedingly expensive it is used

Steam Tachts Come High.
"More than $50,000,000 is invested i&
the fleet of American pleasure craft,
and of this total nearly $40,000,000 is ir
steam yachts," says Ralph D. Paine,
in The World's Work. "The approximate
cost of wages, maintenance, re
pairs and insurance may be placed al
$6,000,000. The five thousand men
employed about three months earD
$1,500,000 while they are afloat, and
io ieea uiern cosis sieuiu jut-ui u?uers
an average total of $2500 a day.
It has become easier for an owner to
rent a first-class steam yacht than to
get a tenant for a costly summer estate,
and the demand has increased sc
rapidly that a charter for a first-class
steam yacht will command from $5,000
to $20,000 a month, exclusive of
all charges for keeping the boat in
"It would be an easy matter to mention
twenty-five American steam
yachts whose aggregate value is $10,000,000.

Too Much Kitchen.
The French, the best cooks in th&
vorld, perform their entire task within

o the china closet alone, for the
Sunerican, following his English an estor,

'ivinsr nn undue amount ot imnortance
o the kitchen or service portion of
he house. The tendency reacts upon
tself, and it may be that the exagger.ted
importance given to the servant
iroblem in this country is less unavoidable
than the ordinary housewife
upposes. If she could but once be
rought to consider restricting the area
tow given to the kitchen and the closes
connected with it, might it not be

cials were selected in New York City,
San Francisco and Salt Lake City and
the larger New Jersey cities. The Prohibitionists
had a ticket in all the
States except Colorado, the Socialists
in all except Nebraska and Colorado,
the Populists in Iowa and Colorado,
and the Socialist Labor party in New
York, Massachusetts and Ohio. Fusion
was effected in Nebraska only,
though the Republicans of New York
Indorsed the Democratic nominee for
Judge of the Court of Appeals.
New York City.?After one of the
most remarkable campaigns ever
known in New York, the Democracy
was sweot back into cower, and in
spite of the fact that nearly every
newspaper and practically every minister
of religion was against him, George
B. McClellan, son of the Civil War
General, was elected third Mayor of
Greater New York, defeating Mayor
Seth Low by a plurality of 63,017
votes. All the Tammany city candidates
were elected by about the same
majority. In four of the five boroughs
Democrats were elected as Borough
Presidents. George Cromwell, of
Richmond, will be the only Republican
in the new Board of Estimate and Apportionment,
which controls the city
budget and is the arbiter of all expenditures
for public improvements.
The vote shows a tremendous change
of public sentiment since Mayor Low's
election two years ago, when he won
by 31,032. At that time he carried all
the boroughs but Queens, his plurality
in Manhattan and the Bronx being
5003; in Brooklyn, 25,707, and in Rich
raond, 7G3. in yueens, snepara (uemocrat)
had a plurality of 5G1. At this
election McClellan carried Manhattan
and the Bronx by 50,829; Brooklyn by
1808, and Queens by 519S, a gain of
more than 4000. This makes a total net
gain for McClellan of about 103,000,
as compared with Shepard's vote of
two years ago. Low carried only one
borough?Richmond?by 21S votes.
To the astonishment of all political
forecasters, Brooklyn, the stronghold
of the Fusionists, was carried for McClellan
by a plurality of approximately
1808. This means the political retirement
of the aged Hugh McLaughlin,
Democratic leader in Brooklyn, who
fought the Tammany ticket. McClellan
carried every borough with the exception
of Richmond, which gives a small
Another surprise was the light vote
given to William S. Devery, formei
Chief of Police, who ran as an independent
candidate for Mayor, and who
boasted that his election was "a sure
thing." His total vote in Greater New
York is 2935. This Is a smaller vote
than was given to t;he Socialist Laboi
candidate, and but little more than the
average Prohibition vote.
Edward M. Grout was elected Con
troller and Charles V. Fornes, Presl'
dent of the Board of Aldermen. These
two men were originally on the Fuslor
ticket and were endorsed by Tammany,
whereupon the Fusionlsts took theli
names from the Low ballots and nom
lnated other candidates. It was the
nomination of Grout and Fornes bj
Tammany that caused Hugh McLaugh.

In an explosion which reduced to an
almost total wreck the United States
Naval Arsenal on Iona Island, In the
Hudson River, three miles <rom this
place. - ;
The first of a series of explosions oc- V
curred in one of the shell houses on the '
island, where six men were engaged in
drawing explosive charges from a con- J*
signment of old shells recently removed '
from the battleship Massachusetts.
Four massive shell houses, built Of
brick and stone, were blown into the 'il
air. The barrack building of the Marine
Guard was almcjpt completely demolished.
A. stable building -was,
wrecked and consumed by flames, and
every building on the island was
wrecked and consumed by flames, and every
building on the island was J
riddled with projectiles that were
hurled in every direction.,
The force of the explosions broke ?
windows and did other damage in this
;ity, Haverstraw, West Point. Highland
Falls, and even caused the falling '
of a wall in an elevator building at
Ossining, eight miles away. :
The dead, all of whom were workmen
employed by the Naval Ordnance
Department, were: Frederick Brown,
Haverstraw; Patrick Curran, Haverstraw;
George Moorebead, Tomkins

Iona Island, which has been xised bt j
the Government for about two years, is
an oblong piece of land running north
and south in the Hudson River, and
cut off from the west shore by a Wt of
swamp land which gave it the name of
an Island. The West Shore Railroad iffl
at the southern end is trestled across'
to the island and runs along its westem
The arsenal, which lies between the
railroad and the main channel of the .
river, consists of four brick and stone J
shellrhouses, 300 feet long and thirty ^
feet wide, arranged in pairs, 120 feet
apart, and numbered from one to four. 1
About 150 feet to the southwest of tne
western pair of shell houses is the ma-1 ,
rine barracks, a two-story structure.
The entire station is the largest naval )
arsenal in the world.
No one will ever be able to tell exactly
how the accident occurred, for aII,T
those who were near are dead, but it >
was known just what they were doing, and
it is said that they were engaged '
in unscrewing the base plug from^a J
thirteen inch shell. The plug wa??
rusty and stuck fast ; I
So great was the force of the explo- g
sion that whole kegs of powder were.-1
thrown many hundreds of yards with
out exploding. Every piece of glass in
every building on the island had been v
instantly shattered by the first explo- :
sion, and the second blew in a portion
of the marine barracks building several
hundred feet away. Many of the
workmen employed on the Island be- .
came panic-stricken and made a wild a
dash for the railroad trestle leading to M
the main land.
The second explosion was followed? V
by great bursts of flame in various adJoining
structures, and as the debris
flared up the hundreds of shells buried
under the fire began to burst.
The cost of some of the biddings was
as much as $50,000 each. A few of '
them were empty, but the others were
filled with old powder and various
magazine stores unloaded from ships
going out of commission. The most re?
cent unloading was .that of the cruiser
Columbia, which soon is to go out of
Other stores on the Island consisted
of lignite, dynamite, cordite, millinite, :>
lyddite and gun cotton. There has
been great care taken, it is said, to pre
vent accident. A red flag of danger 7
was a 1 way8 hoisted over the island.'
Thermometers were placed In each
structure and their records taken fre?
quently to keep track of possible chem- - ical
