Antbi mm KntrrprUlas M Tb. of Amr UlbH Cirrait Community. Those who Uave grown aecus-toroed to the nlniost proverbiul xprtlon, "A kluw as a riiihuleljiliiun," have never pone beyond tbe humorous con- jldenition CI the matter, vntts vr William Ellis Trlngs, in the Chicago American. . Tli iiewsiier have made it tbe brunt of humorous thrust, the theme has furnished, food for carica ture ta on ooeusion when more mo mentous problems have lain in slum bering quiescence, lectuyr have (cored Introductory point about it, nd knights of the "heel and clog" have come to resort to it an a vindica tion when oidi and memorable gray haired jolcea have failed to find market in the playhouse of the beautiful city of homes. So far haa this over-indulgence of a well-taken criticism extendedv that one may hear in England and a far away s the orient, stories invested with rid icule for patient Philadelphia, the long suffering and never-complaining home of as lovely and loving a community of people as God ever made. A certain lecturer in Scotland, com memorating the disposition of his fam ily said: "I have three children liv ing, and one in Philadelphia, Pa." A well known long distance walker ath lete, losing tbe championship in a time walk from Washington to New York, consoled bis defeat and amused bis admirers by declaring that he was far ahead of his old-time record, when, on arriving la the city of Philadelphia, his feet went to sleep, and he was un able to proceed further with his ac customed agility. The members of a flourishing base ball team, on alighting from tbe train, each appeared armed with a gigantic alarm clock which they proceeded to carry about the town to keep them awake. A still more unfortunate, but actual occurrence is the one recorded in the undertakers' journals that Philadel phia is the only city in the world en joying the distinction of having had one of its citizen run over and killed by an undertaker's hearse. Actors appease the fancy's fickle foi bles by informing us that they come to Philadelphia and tell jotoe one season, returning the next to find they have just penetrated the slumbering per ceptions of the easy-going citizens. And thus, Philadelphia becomes the poet's theme, the joker's jest, the caricaturist's hope, while its unaveng ing millions are born, live and die In the deepest affection for the place, un mindful of the thrusts, and not infre quently enjoying them.. I have seen consumptives deliber ately refuse the offer of home and' com fort, with an almost indisputable as surance of restoration to health and, ertainly a longer life, in the mountainh of the south, sonthwest and Colorado, that they might remain in the city of their love and die tEera seemingly perfectly contented. In two cases par ticularly I know that each could ksrve had every luxury that wealthy and anxious friends and relatives would have tendered to go away into the land of oxygenous air and balmy sun shine, but they refused to leave the one dying when the winter came, and the other lingering to-3ay, held by the barest thread of existence that is worse than death. Now, there is a serious and a scien tific side to the fact of Philadelphia's slowness as a body of people. It is noticeable that the men who control wealth, who handle great cor porations and engage, in vast business enterprises therein, are alive to their business' best interests, and comprise as wakeful a set of men as one wishes to find in any municipality in the world. This is particnlarly noticeable in the political affairs of Philadelphia. Those who engage in the actual con trol of the vast city's interests take oc casional opportunity to assure the world that there is nothing slow about the politicians of that town. The voters are just the contrary let a man in authority betray every sense of honor and fidelity to his constituency, and they will re-elect him as long as he shows his allegiance to the powers that be. This signifies subserviency ser vile submission whether it be good or bad. The same is true in business. While it Is not done, T add, to the honor of Philadelphia business men. yet a business man who desired could exact almost any honest condition of em ployment from his hard-worked arti sans, and they would humiliatingly submit to it rather than run the risk and dread of a lost position. This is said in no disparagement it is sim ple truth. n.meatle Pn4a of view. If there was anything upon which Mrs. Upjohn prided herself it was her coffee.

The gruwlb. of luxurious living in America was very slow during the tirbt 60 years of the republic Indeed, up to the brenklng out ol our civil war the inequalities of fortune were Cut so ,.r-h ." i ,i,ln those who lived sumptuously according to the stand ards of those days seem so I arremoved from the merely well-to-do as to be al most in another world. In the earlier days, any sober and industrious man could prosper, even though he did not perform merely manual labor. There was work for every one to do, and no one was more in demand than Mr. Jack-of-all-trades, who now walks superflu ous In the dusty highway, with no one to- applaud his adaptability, none to need his ingenious services. Food was Plenty, land was cheap, rents were low. Be honest and you will be happy, was not mere cant; it was the solemn and the grateful truth. Pretty nearly every one lived well, but pretty nearly all lived plainly. With better nouses, with better water1 supplies, with im proved lamps for illumination and then with the introduction of illum inating gas, and most of all with the rreater wealth which came at the end of the civil war, the growth of luxuri ous living began taking tremendous atrides. Luxury with poor light after sunset, luxury with few, of the means of personal cleanliness, does not mean much to us nowadays. Why, a man in a Harlem flat at tflOO a year can com mand more of the kind, of luxury just mentioned than say the dissolute Charles II. ever dreamed of. But the wealth that comes with new fortunes to new people was really what began the race which may be called the Mil lionaire Stakes for all ages, says a writer in Ainslee's Magazine. Before these stakes were opened there were a few fortunes in this coun try. Some were made in the trade with the east, some were made in strictly domestic commerce, some were found ed in piraey, and other adventures by sea, but the greatest number and the most stable were those which came from the shrewd Investments in land which was enhanced in value by the growth of cities. Even up to the time that the newly rich began to snlifire the owners of the fortunes just i'-n-tioned were pretty generally tolerablv plain people, who lived very o"iet' and looked upon those who made un usual display as too vuljnr to eoTe in side the sacred pale which railed itself society. In New York, this clnss rf people at the time mentioned lived li the neighborhood of Washin?tor Square; in Philadelphia, toward iVf foot of Walnut street, and in TWtfn. ! that ever Bacred Beacon street. The were slow but sure. Thev hnd nr doubt nbout their posil ion, or 1'ie pro priety with which they maintained their dignity. They did what they pleased, but they did not nlen'e to hr in the least fantastic, theatric, os tentatious or conspicuous. And until the newly rich had arrived, with the manifest intention to stay permanent ly, there were none with either the am bition or the ability to dispute this su premacy, which was maintained not by an aggressiveness, but by the passive power of inert ja.. Deartai Caused 1r MosqaMo. Mosquitoes are now charged with communicating erysipelas as well as malaria and yellow fever. A New York physician has issued a death certificate in the case of a 14 months' old babe, in which he savs "Death was caused by erysipelas due to the bite of a mosquito." It is only fair to the mosquito to record that the board of health officers refused to accept the certificate until a coro ner's physician had investigated and concluded that there was no other nnparent cause for the death than tl'e mosquito bite.

The richest farm in the worlo is acre worth $288,000 in the heart of New York's ultra-fashionable district, be tween West End avenue and Biver side drive. It is tilled regularly and the produce is sold at the nearest mar ket. During the civil war the site was covered by a government recruit ing station. A research steamer belonging to the Norwegian government recently car ried on the North sea some experi mental fishing which yielded impor tant results. In three days 117 halibut and 300 large cod were caught et depth of 200 fathoms, thus proving the existence of large quantities of these fishes at a time 6f the year when they are not to he found on the coast of Norway.
