Ingenious Business Men "Who Can Give
l'olnts to the Cable Manager.
"U'hen ocean cabling cost $1 a word it vraa
perfwth' natural that tho brokers and
merchants who found it desirable to uso that
means of communication for business'should
do everything possible to reduce the num
ber of words necessary to convey tho mean
ing of their messages. Ono of tho methods
immediately employed for cutting down th?
quantity of language was tho employment
of cablo codes, where a. designated word was
used for an entire phrase, and another method
was to register a word or a namo at tho
offices at either end of tho line, which
served as tho address. Tho people who use
tho cables hare gotten on to a new wrinkle
in tho registering of the names, to which tho
cnblo companies distinctly object, but so
long as the present competition continues
they don't feel themselves strong enough to
tako any determined stand in the matter.
Tho wrinkle in question is the arrange
ment of tho cable codu in such a way that
tho address not only serves to carry tho mes
sago to its destination, but has a significance
of its own. For instance, a Now York firm
telegraphing to its London branch addresses
them under twenty-five or thirty different
registered names, all of which are rei-jr led
ki tho London c.fMce. If tho message '-. .- -:it
to Jack, London, it not only reaches .Tohn
Bmith & Co., for whom it was intended, but
John Smith & Co. know from the very fact
that they have been nddressed as Jack, that
1,000 pieces of some lino of goods are re
quired to be sent by tho next steamer. If,
on tho other hand, tho firm is addressed un
df r the namo of Robert, London, which is
al-oa registered name, and which reaches
V., firm indue course, they know thot a dif-f'-ivnt
order is intended. In this way theso
ingenious peoplo practically get out of pay
ing for tho ttddrens, and tho cablo company
); thorn wriggling out of the responsibility
of cable regulations, and aro practically
j lowerless to do anything.
Another favorite modo of cutting down
the number of cablo words, especially in
cabling to Germany and Italy, is to take two
or three foreign words, each of which may
represent a phrase, and blend them together
in what appears to bo ono word, liy this
means nine or ten letters of the alphabet,
costing tw.-Ive or fifteen cents for its trans
mission, convoys to tho other side an entiro
f-eutence. The regulation in regard to tho
length of wards is that no word, either a
manufactured word for codo purposes or a
(reiiuino word of tho language, shall bo trans
mitted for tho ordinury tariff if it exceeds
ten letters in length. New York Mail and

A II:i for College Training.
A young man with a common commercial
education receives employment sooner than
a graduate from the classical department of
n college. Thus at the outset in tho race of
life tho ono with tho bare necessities actually
takes the lead. But he does not hold it. lie
is too s-hort winded. SlowJy, but surely, tho
other creeps up, and before tho race is fin
Mied he has jKissed and distanced his com-K-iitor.
There is but one way to account for this.
Brain force is the power to bo used in tho
rnco of life. Tho greater tho force, tho
greater the chances of success. Tho cultured
aptitude for footing up columns of figures,
making correct entries, calculating discount,
etc., is very good as far as it goes. But 11
doesn't go far. Ho whose education has sim
ply fitted him for such occupations will for
ever feel that he is a brain dwarf. Our suc

An English Actor Tells u Funny Story
About His Staffed Legs.
Charles "Warner, the English actor, who
created tho part of Coupeau hi Chariea
Reade's version of Zola's 'L'Asommoir,rt
thus relates his first experience on the stage:
'I obtained an engagement at ono of the
small provincial theatres; but how to get a
wardrobe? I had no money save a few shil
lings; however, I made a confident of my sis
ter, and she assisted me in my dreadful de
signs. She gave me about thirty shillings,
and with this sum I repaired to a second
hand theatrical depot, and purchased several
useful properties sword, white wig, stock
ings, etc. But, oh heavens 1 when I tried on
the stockings they were sizes on sizes too
large. for mv shanks! What was I to do?
Happy thought! my sister came to the res- t
cue, and made me a pair of lovely legs. She
dexterously sewed some pieces of flannel,
piled one upon another together, and when I
placed them on the sjxjt whore my calf ought
to have been they looked magnificent
"On, my first night I played two parts,
Bras Rouge in 'Mysteries of Paris,' and Saib
in 'Castle Specter.' Saib, my first part, was
a black but virtuous slave. My calves came
into requisition, as I wore only black tights
and a loose Indian shirt. "When I was dressed
for Saib I heard remarks anything but com
plimentary from tho other actors, who all
dressed in one long room, my legs flannel
legs being epecially acted for chaff. I must
have looked awfully funny a tall, raw boned
youth, with very little flesh on my bones,
and those enormous legs. Well, I got on the
stage, and my first scene was nearly over. I
had a terrific struggle with Earl Percy in
the piece. On rising from the ground, where
ho had thrown me in tho terriblo encounter,
thero was a loud laugh from all parts of tho
house. I could not tell in my nervous excite
ment, what had happened. Earl Percy pointed
to my poor legs, and there were tho huge
calves in front of my shins. In the struggle
they had slipped round, and deformed my
otherwise very straight legs. Oh, if I could
only sink through the stage! But, no, I must
finish tbo scene. And finish it I did, amid
tho laughter of tho whole house. I may add
that they made me double a part in tho piece,
from Saib to a captain of tho guard. It was
a very quick change, and on resuming the
dress of Saib, my right calf was nowhero to
be found. I was in despair.
" 'Sir, there is a stage wait for you,' cried
n voice; and, in my terrible excitement, I
rushed on the stage, with one huge stuffed
leg and tho other a poor spindlo shank,
shriveled liko King Richard's arm.
"Never shall I forget the peals of laughter
as I entered. Speaking was out of tho question.
After many vain attempts, I made a most
ignominious exit. I never wore flannel calves

Tho Crown Prince's Children.
Tho prince, who is as witty ns he is affablo
and good natured, is famous for numberless
smart sayings in official and private inter
course. A few of the numerous jeux d'esprit
attributed to him wdl show tho bent of his
sprightly and high principled mind. When
Prince William, his eldest son, was sent to
Fchool at Cassel, tho head master of the
gymnasium inquired whether tho future heir
to the German crown was to be addressed
royal highness by the teachers. "Good
heavens, no," exclaimed tho judicious father,
"do not burden him with a heavy titlo all
his age. He will bo oppressed by tho weight
of it early enough in life, I can tell j'ou."
And so Prince William was you'ed (to imi
tate German phrase), liko the other young
men, and had his full share of tho school's
labors and discipline, as well as of tho rough
handling religiously dealt to new comers by
tho elder boys. What knowledgo of lifo
German princes are able to acquire by thus
early mixing with their equals in age, if not"
in rank, as a matter of course stands them in
good stead in later 3-cars.
Some time anterior to this instructive little
incident, Princo Henry then a small boy, at
present an intelligent captain in tho im
perial navy objected to his ordinary nblu
tions in the morning. Finding him refrac
tory beyond her powers of persuasion, the
crown princess reported the young offender
to his father, who took his measures without
saying much about it. On the following
da', as tho boy came home from his drive,
he complained to his father that tho sentinel
nt tho door had not paid him tho usual j
courtesy of presenting arms. "Of course
not," was tho reply. "Prussian sentinels do
not notice unwashed boys." Never again
did crestfnllen Henry refuse to bo led up to
tho useful basin. Berlin Cor. Inter Ocean,

But it is hard to decido whether tho man
who comes out here sick and goes home well
or tho man who comes out hero well and has
such a good time ho goes homo sibk is tho
most elfectivo advertiser. Of course, wo
really mnko more money out of tho sick
people than out of the well ones. We may
lose on tho well ones. Hospitality is expen
sive, whereas doctors and drug stores and
delicacies suited to sick people arc all pro
ductive of pecuniary profit and bring nioney
here. Wo give them climate, of course, but
climate does not cost anything, however valu
able health may bo to them.
There docs not seem to be any impropriety
in sending in a big bill to a sick man. Ho
comes out ready for it and he expects to pay.
Yet he has no fun and precious little comfort
when ho is ill. But when a fellow is well
enough to go down in the office of a hotel and
kick about the extras ev&ybody seems anx
ious to make him comfortable. A man who
is well and has a good time comes back again.
A man always returns to the place whero ho
had a good time; but a man who has gotten
over a serious attack of sickness here is liable
never to want to come back. And there are
after all a great many more well people who
want a good time than sick people who want
to find a recuperativo climate. Perhaps it
would bo better to drop our cry about tho
climato and make our motto "A Good Time."

Tho Eskimo's Ico House.
But the snow house is not the only kind
used in the Arctic winter by these strange
peoplo, for ice is sometimes employed, though
in no way to tho extent that the other is used.
I havo already said that snow must be of a
certain quality or consistency to make good
building malarial, a matter depending on low
tempcraturo and the fierce Arctic winds.
Sometimes in the early winter one or both
of theso conditions (generally the latter; have
not been fulfilled, and yet it is uncomfortably
cold living in their seal skin tents, tho usual
summer abode. Then the Eskimo, looking
for better quarters, cuts slabs of ice from
somo lake, when it has frozen to about six
inches In thickness, and these slabs, about the
size of the common house door, aro placed on
end, and joined edge to edge, really making
a pen of ico of tho size of tho house they de
sire to hare. Over tho top, supported on
loles so as to raise it in the center, is tho seal
skin tent, which is fastened thero ao as to
form n very serviceable roof; although this
may be replaced by a dome of snow later on.
A night scene in ono of these ice villages,
with their transparent sides cud bright burn
ing lamps, is beautiful and weird in tho ex
treme. Frederick Schwatka in Cosnopol-itan.
An Itrm of Expense.
An item in the expene account of the
street railways which in the coursa of the
year amounts to a good round mm is that for
alt used on the tracks in snowy or aloppy
weather. At every viaduct, curve and cross
ing a man is stationed with a bucket of aalt,
busily sprinkling tho track. When tha en
tire street railway system of tho city la con
ridered it will at once be seen that the out
lay for tho material used and laVir employed
reaches far into the thousands of dollars.
"it is not every engineer that can run a
Know plow," said a locomotive engineer the
other day. "You can tako tho -best runner
on the road and put him on a snow plow, and
very likely he would resign his job in an
hour if he could, just because lie is not fitted
for the place. Nowadays snow plows are dif
ferent from what they were back in the six
ties. I was then on the St Paul road, and
they turned a snow plow out of the shop and
put me aboard. The engine was a wood
burner, with a big stack, and the snow plow
excited tho admiration of everybody that
saw it. It was made of riveted boiler plates,
and reached about two feet over the top of
the stack. It was V shaped in front and was
bolted to the pilot and the manhead of tho
boiler. Ic did fairly good work, and was so
much more effective than the former ones
that it became noted. A snow plow nowa
days will do more work in one hour than I
could do with tho old Fearless in a day.
"The last snow plow that I ran was the new
Storm King on the Northern Pacific. It was
mado of wood with a steel shoe and cutwater,
or cutsnow, as wo called it. Instead of being
attached to the engine, it was built on a car
and pulled behind tho engine. This car was
warm, had a stove, and was piled half full of
pig iron to hold it down.
"To gi'e you some idea of the work a snow
plow has to do, you will suppose that a bliz
zard has been blowing for three days and
traffic has been entirely suspended. At last
the wind stops blowing. The morning is
clear and cold oh, so coldl Tho snow plow
is ordered out. Gangs of men are at work
shoveling ofT tho turntablo and clearing the
yard. You jump into the cab of your engine,
and your fireman incidentally remarks: 'It's
40 degs. below, Hank.' That's pretty chilly,
but you don't mind it because you aro dressed
for it. I weigh 165 pounds in the buff, but
when I am dressed for 40 degs. below zero
with a snow plow I appear to weigh IJOO.
"Now we are ready to start. Slowly wo
move out of the round house to the main
track, whero wo couple on a car filled with
provisions and show shovelers. In the town
we find everything clear, but the minute wo
got beyond habitations, which doesn't tako
long up in Minnesota and Dakota, our work
"Tho sun looks like a frozen ball of butter
in tho air, and on each sido is seen tho sun
dogs, that invariably show up on such cold
mornings. They aro very beautiful, with
their rainbow colors, but wa hato to seo them
all tho same, for they foretell a contiuuanco
of tho cold weather. The rays of the sun
emit no warmth and tho air is full of little
necdlo liko particles of frost. The curtain of
our cab is let down and tightly buttoned.
Our windows are battened, and we are com
paratively warm. The side windows are im
mediately covered with frost from our breath
and tho steam, but the fireman keeps tho
front windows clear. May bo we go along
smoothly for a mile beforo wo strike a drift.
s far as tho 030 can reach thero is a track
less wasto of snow, white and glistening.
Fences are obliterated in white drifts that
aro sometimes fantastic in their shapes. Tho
snow cutter on tho engine pilot is cleaving
its way through the snow, occasionally strik
ing a drift that makes it jump a little, and
behind the Storm King is sweeping it up
from tho rail and two foet on each side, send
ing it up and outward liko jets from a foun
tain. " 'There's a big one, nank,' says the fire
man. Sure enough, a quarter of a milo
nhead is a big drift half as high as a house,
that has blown through a gap in the fence.
We aro going about twenty miles an hour.
It would be easier to go through that drift if
our pace was accelerated u little. I pull out
the throttloand we bound along thirty, then
forty miles an hour, until wo aro upon it,
and a little extra yank at tho throttle and wo
dive into it. That wns fun, and how tho
mow did fly. It was only a couple of rods
long and six feet deep, and wo cut through it
like a sharp knife through a piece of cheese.
"Again wo havo clear sailing until we
reach a cut. This cut is from six to twenty
feet deep and nearly a quarter of a mila
" 'Get stuck here, Hank,' says tho fireman,
and you can bet ho wns right. I let her go
Gallagher, and wo light into that cut liko a
1 thousand of brick, but this timo tho snow is
the victor. Even the big Storm King, with
its heavy weight behind, does not help us,
and wo come to a dead stop, and only a rod
or so into the cut, with snow in front, each
sido, and on top wo are literally buried. I
reverse tho engine, but tho wheels only slip,
and sand doesn't do any good. A toot of tho
whistle, and tho shovelers come swarming
out. They work liko beavers for ten minutes,
and thou run for the car, and a relief gang
"May be in an hour they dig us out, and wo
back up a milo mid tako unother header into
tho cut to meet our former fate. A person
would think that a snow plow dashed against
a drift of snow at tho rate of from forty to
fifty miles an hour would bo apt to go
through not only snow, but through a pilo
of rocks, but it doesn't. It goes just far
enough to make tho men swear, and get out
"It is a common thing for cattlo to tako
refuge in these cuts when they got caught in
the blizzards. Several times we have run
into them. Once we dug out thirty-two head
of cattlo after my engine had jumped the
track from striking the frozen body of one of
them. You can bet tho boys had steak in
tho car that day.
"The revolving snow plows now in uso are
a great invention. They work on the pro
peller blade style, and cut swaths about eight
inches deep and throw ;he snow out. Now,
the only thing that is wanted is a machine
that will pick the ice from between the rails.
If a man could invent such a machine ho
could sell it for $1,000,000 and a royalty that
would make a princo of him.
"What I mean is tliis. In some cases a
road is suowed up for months, as the Hasfc
ings and Dakota division of the St. Paul road
was, I think, in ISsO. Over 100 miles of road
was closed west of Bird Island all w inter.
When a case of that kind takes place ico
forms between the tracks, caused by ihe sun
on warm days melting tho snow, the water
draining through and freezing. This neces- t
sitates picking it out with a pick by hand j
labor. No engino can run, for the ice comes
higher than tho ash pan, and also freezes
next to the rails, so that the flanges on the j
wheels won't set down. j
