FUNNY FINANCIER. Proposes New Syndicate for Western Maryland Company. A. Parlett Lloyd discloses an im portant piece of railroad news in the following statement: “It occurs to me that it is about time to indorse a new combination for the purchase of the Western Maryland Railroad. I suggest the E. Z. Foolyew Syndicate, of New York and San Fran cisco. This company has capital stock of $200,000,000 (of which $8 has been paid in) and a floating surplus of 7 cents. It is composed of promoters, lobbyists and heavy promisers. The prospectus it is about to issue is at tractive, and it cannot fail to rally to ' its support our leading citizens. It has not yet decided whether to make the Western Maryland a connecting link and through trunk line with the Great Northern, the Canadian Pacific, the Louisville and Nashville, or to run it South over the tracks of the An , napolis Short Line, connecting it by the Isthmus of Panama with the Peru Central and the Brazilian system , through to Patagonia. “I understand for a paltry consider ation of $1,500,000 the syndicate will verbally promise to make Baltimore the greatest city on earth, crush the i Pennsylvania Railroad, annihilate the Baltimore and Ohio and build a mag nificent Union Station of solid gold s bricks. It will also promise to so re i duce the city tax rate that instead of paying money to the Collector after \ 1809 it will pay former taxpayers in • terest on amounts hitherto paid. “How could we afford to stand back, , when promises are so fairer than the i daily work of the two great railroads we already have? Think of tidewater > —and fortunate too it was tied, or the old syndicate would have used it all in . its stock; think of direct connection, f say, with Bering Sea or the Straits of ■ Magellan, whichever we want; think of solid icebergs coming in over the : Western Maryland for our citizens in summer, while New York remains in 1 the clutches of the Ice Trust; think -of the ruined coal barons of Pennsyl vania when they wake up some fine morning to find our transcontinental, North-South-Central-All-America rail . road bringing us black diamonds from the Rockies and the Andes at trifling , expense! Who can hesitate?” Editorial Repartee. i A Western weekly prints the follow j ing: “Paterfamilias asks: ‘How can 1 . get an article into your esteemed - paper?’ It all depends on the article . you want to get into our paper, 1 Pater. If it is small In bulk, like a 1 hair-brush or a tea-caddy spread the paper out upon the floor, and, placing 5 the article carefully in the centre, i neatly fold the edges over it and tie with a string. This will keep the ar t tide from slipping out. If,, on the other hand, the article Is an English t bathtub or a clothehorse, you will , find it more suited to one of the New York Sunday papers.” DEATH’S HARVEST. Well Known Residents And Others Who Have Passed Away. Wood. Mrs. Isabella Wood, who died in I Baltimore last week at the ripe old i age of 87 years, was well and favor ably known in this city, she and her ! family having resided here for a num i ber of years in the residence adjoining ■ the Farmers and Mechanics’ National Bank and later in the dwelling occu pied by the late Dr. Franklin.

S COLLEGE BRED WOMEN. j Higher Education Does Not Unfit Them for Domestic Life. ) In a recent number of a popular [ magazine there is a brief exposition I by the heads of seven American col ’ leges, devoted exclusively to the high ; er education of women, of the ideals * aimed at by the woman colleges and 1 concerning the life mission of the col lege-bred woman. There is not a 7 very great diversity of view among 1 the seven distinguished educators in 1 the setting forth of the results broad ly aimed at in the higher education ; of women. Service to her generation, * to her race—that, in a nutshell, is the ' ideal for their graduates at which the i women’s colleges are aiming. This 5 thought of service and of a highly " trained capacity for service is express -1 ed in practically every one of the * papers contributed under the head -1 ing of “What Kinds of Young Women r Our Leading American Colleges Are ‘ Aiming to Produce.” The sweet girl graduate is a finish ’ ed product, but not a society orna s ment; not simply and merely for dec -3 orative purposes. She has been train r ed to work. One president of a cele -5 brated New England institution de -1 dares “the colleges have no sym ’ pathy with the view that it is undig ' nified to work; rather, they believe 1 that it is beneath the dignity of a 5 human being not to work.” The head 1 of another institution that is main -1 taining a high level in the education 1 of women believes that the higher ed ‘ cation for women “is substituting for B the weak and vain ambitions of what > is called society ambitions worthy of spiritual and intellectual womanhood.” I And another distiqguished college => president expresses the view that “for the ideally trained woman service to others is an essential condition of her life and growth. Contact with noble minds through study of books and - through personal association will make her eager to throw herself into the I great struggle of humanity. Snob -1 bishness, clannishness and self-seek e ing have no place where truth reigns.” •, Not one of the college presidents i concurs in that view which has at e times been given expression, that a I college training unfits women for do i, mestic life —for being wives, mothers b and the superintendents of homes. In - answering the question, “What kind b of a woman should the college pro i duce?” the head of a Massachusetts 1 woman’s college replies: “Women 7 like that mother of a family In a West ern city, who is commissioner of pub- BABYLON k LIPPY (I ***************************************************** I (JET ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE STREET.I It is a strange fact that one side of a street is always more I frequently used than the other.

Her com- j , mencement day marks a commence s ment in her life mission; and her life 1 > mission is not by any means, accord i ing to those who should be well quali r fled to speak for her, to be “the but ■ terfly along the road.” * Bisks Death for Science. [ * In the hope of discovering a pre ' ventive and cure for tuberculosis Frank Werritt, of New York city, who, about two weeks ago, volunteered to surrender his body in the interest of humanity and medical science, has permitted a physician to inoculate his system with the germs of the dread disease. An examination made show ed that the scourge has already made [ considerable progress since the inocu- i ' lation, one week ago. j 1 Merritt, who is of middle age, was _ at one time a prosperous bookbinder " in a Western State. According to his story, his wife and a promising son ] died victims of tuberculosis. Their , : loss prayed on his mind to such an , extent that he failed in business and , became a wanderer. Two weeks ago , he applied to the Salvation Army 1 headquarters in New York city for ' lodging and was sent to the Salvation . Army Hotel in Chatham Square. It i ; was there that he announced his will ; ingness to die if his death might aid ‘ In combating the spread of consump ' tion. At Hartford City, Ind., Henry God- dard found $250 in notes in a shoe that | 5 was sent to him to be repaired. The j t owner of the shoe, Mrs. James Park- ‘ i er, distrusting banks, had put the . money in the shoe and forgotten all j about it. i After watching 152 women alight 1 from street cars the observer report- i ■ ed that one out of each 18 got off cor- ! i rectly, facing In the direction the cars ; i were going, and then added that he • thought they intended to make it ■ unanimous, but made mistakes. Taxicabs in London. Consul General Robert J. Wynne re ports that taxicabs have become such popular street vehicles in London that the demand for them is much greater than the supply. He adds: “The taxicabs are used by all classes I of people, day and night, at the uni form rate of 16 cents a mile, and they ! present a most attractive appearance iin chocolate, blue, yellow, red and green hues, with chauffeurs in the brightest and smartest liveries. “Although scarcely a year has pass ed since these swift-moving electric and petrol carriages appeared, the ! capital already Invested in London taxicabs is $10,000,000. There are 758 taxicabs on the streets, 2600 taxi cabs on order, 17000 licensed drivers, ;an average of 55 certificates granted each week. There are eight London taxicab companies, their average day s ’ takings of a taxicab being $11.20. The average cost of a London taxicab is $1703, and its average takings are about S7B a week. “Some chauffeurs already are buy ing their own taxicabs on the install ment plan, and the picturesque ban ■ som Is disappearing gradually, the old-fashioned horse ’bus, which practically has been crowded aside by the motor omnibus.” RELIGIOUS NOTICES.
