Slop* 01* ttarpa* laHHaura. Bn*m*ta.»Ba I ’erfection*^21 Abaolatolp OiuuUod *V f UP AND DOWN BROADWAY By ALLEN GRIFFIN JOHNSON iurK, «iuiy —topeciai i—^uhoiu^ Ing the magnitude of New York's popula tion and her gTeat throngs of daily visitors, it la really remarkable how well the mul titude not only is controlled, but control? Itself. You may think, for instance, that the mere act of walking along the street? is very easy of accomplishment; yet ir more than one southern city there are many poeple who display absolutely nc thought for others while upon the thor oughfares; whereas, if the same thought lessness were In evidence upon Manhat tan's great arteries there would soon be congestion and various unpleasant evi dences of it. The smaller the city, the more the in dividual inhabitant seems to think he amounts to, and the more room he takes up. One thing, it never requires New York long to convince people about—that is, the invidual is a very small sort of a fl«h in this big sea of humanity, but he is expected to take care of himself and to go swimming about his business at least fast enough to keep out of the way of others. Of course, we have traffic policemen, and a few little things like that to help us look after ourselves, but we very soon get the habit of doing it even better than another could do it for us. Here, when people wfalk the streets, they keep to the right—otherwise they will make practi cally no progress—they also keep moving for that is the courtesy of New York— keep out of the other fellow's way. ami don't stop to try to be nice to him or her: it would simply result in inconvenience tc yourself and others. On the cars, w’hether "L." subway or surface, there seems to be a proper regard for the party who Is just in your rear, who always appears to be in a hurry. Therefore, you must hurry, too. and after a little of this hurrying you soon acquire the habit and then it is Impossible to get rid of it. You rush always and everywhere. You hardly know why you are doing it, but it is the New York influence in full working order. Then, there is one other thing that plays an Important part in producing such well conducted throngs In this city—that is the great number of signs. One hardly need ask a single question here if he but use his eyes and his head a little. No matter where you want to go. what you wish to procure or what you want to do. there is a sign to help you out, If you will only look for it. These signs almost think for you. Every need seems to have been thought of and written out In the form of a sign. Directions are everywhere, and frequently these are written in as many as three different lan guages. So. whether it be a disposition on the part of the public to do its best In re turn for so thoughtful a municipality or whether something changes one as soon os he lands uopn Manhattan’s shores, certain it is that this city’s throngs seem to know how to take care of themselves and keep out of the other fellow's way better than do the people of any smaller city I have ever known. New York is now’ so immense that few? of its own Inhabitants know it thorough ly. In fact, their meager knowledge of its different sections would surprise a new comer; but they feel that they can always And their way anywhere within its confines without so much as even ask ing a question. Our foreign friends- and they are many —who make their living as strolling musi cians, believe thoroughly that New York likes the Sextette from “Lucia” better than any selection to be found in this or any other country. There ift not a hurdy gurdy, hand organ, or German band on the streets which does not give us the Sextette many times every day; though now and then the musicians from the Fataherland vary it with “Die Wacht am Rhine.’’ in spite of our long suffering neu trality. as much as the other, according to report and they will therefore continue to deligh the movie “fans. ' They tell us that people are susplcioui of each other here. But if you will pasi any uptown news stand about the tim« most people are going down town to busi ness, you will find It well sprinkled with | pennies that purchasers have throwr | down as they picked up the paper fhe> wanted. No one seems even to be watch ing the pennies or the purchasers; yet 1 have never heard of a newsdealer making a complaint about Ibsing money In thi* way. THE CIRCLE. Youth dreams of the prize at the end ol the tight. And longs for the din of the battle. The flash and the roar of the Cannon of Right. And the Wrong’s deadly musketry rat tle. We enter the struggle—the battle of life— Nor reck of its wounds or its blighting; Ere long we hut hope for the close of the strife. And the peace at the end of the fighting But. once In the fray. It's a fight to the death, When o'er us Right’s colors are flying. Till Wrong is defeated and gasping for breath. Where red runs the gore of the dying. Then a cheer rends the air—we have won for the Right— The reward of the victor Is ours; From the field then away e'er the coming of night. We will rest In Life's garden of flowers, And then, in the stillness of soft eventide, Fond memories’ shadows come throng ing, But not for the things that we long age sighed. No more for the prize are we longing. Far off in the distance the struggle goes on, We can hear the faint musketry rattle, And though aged andworn with the years that have gone. We long once again for the battle. Tt Isn't so much the White Lights, after all, as It is your own viewpoint. When there is money in your pocket and time on your hands, they seem to glow with a warmth that is full of invitation and real hospitality. But. If you happen to be broke and likewise busy, with neither time nor money for indulgence, they take on a hard and steely glitter—yet, they are Just the same old lights, looking on all men alike. Just as they looked before you and L came and Just as they will look after we shall have made our exit. Joy of Being Musical By IRENE WESTON. "T’m afraid." said the girl, with a sigh, "that you will And me a very unsatis factory kind of companion for a concert. You see. I know absolutely nothing about orchestrization or the theory of music." "Then, you'll have to learn," laughed the man. as he looked through the pro gramme. "You’ll enjoy the concert ever so much more If you’ll even read the ex planatory annotationa" “To my mind.” the girl suggested, great ly daring, "the right kind of music oughtn’t to need explanatory notes. It the singer or the orchestra can’t interpret it for you, there must be something wrong somewhere.’’ The musician looked at the girl with disapproval. She was a dear little thing, and he was really mighty fond of her. Hut It was a pity she didn’t know any thing about music. Years of his own life had been spent in browsing amongst or chestral scores. He knew every move ment of every symphony that was worth while. He understood exactly the con struction of the most intricate piece. And thfe girl didn’t know the difference be tween k viola and a violin. "You can’t understand music properly unless you know how It’s made,’’ said the man, with a frown. "You don’t know what the composer was driving at unless you know the work he allotted to every instrument.’’ ‘1 don’t need to know the ingredients of an ice pudding and the overture to ‘Leonora,’ ’’ cried the musician angrily. "An ice pudding doesn’t tell a story. My point is that you can’t see the pictures the composer meant to see unless you under stand the significance of the manner in which every movement is treated." The girl was about to reply. But the conductor appeared, and she was silent. She felt very ignorant. And she was sorry. She would certainly have been a more congenial pal if she had understood the mechanics of music. But she wasn’t going to let her ignorance spoil every thing. She meant to enjoy the concert. She would listen to the symphony—and read the notes afterwards. Very soon she forgot all about the man at he rside. Her ears revelled In the rich ness and beauty of the music. And her eyes saw pictures, too. She found herself Inventing story, just as she had Invented stories long ago for the delight of a young sister. The story was not a children’s story; it was an epitome of her own life, as she would have desired it to be. Then, with a change in the music, she let the composer tell the story—and finish it. "Well," queried the man, when the symphony was over, "did you like It?" "Yes," said the girl. But the man was not satisfied. The next piece was the "Pathetic.’ The girl had never heard it. He was tremendously anxious that she should understand all that Tchalkowsky meant in the incompar able symphony. In a subdued whisper he began to explain the construction of the piece, analyzing and dissecting it as It went along. He was pitifully anxious that the girl should not miss the signifi cance of a single passage. Suddenly, she turned around and looked at him reproachfully. "Oh, do be quiet,” she burst out, "you’re spoiling it all!" • • • "I’m glad I don’t know anything about music," she confessed when the concert was over. "So very glad. I was a hit ashamed of my Ignorance before. I’m glad of it now. You know so much about the way music Is made that you haven't time to enjoy it" German Genera] Dead in Captivity Dresden, Germany, July 10.—(Spe cial.)—The first high German officer tc rile In captivity, so far as has been re corded is Lieut. Gen. Von Haugk former equerry of the King of Saxony whb has just been reported as dead ol kidney trouble in Taschkent. Russia General Von Haugk fell into the hands of the Russians last October w'hile hr was in charge of a set of gifts being transported to the German soldiers For a time he was given every possible favor, but when the report spread ir Russia that Baron KonfT, the governoi of Warsaw, captured by the Germans was being severely handled, the same treatment was accorded General Vox Haugk. He was born in Leipsic In 1850 the son of a high magistrate in Sax ox^y, and married the daughter of the Prussian General Von Tietsen. He wax for a time aide-de-camp to the King oi Saxony, and since 1899 his equerry. Waterloo Baby Celebrates London, July 10.—(Special.)—The las of the Waterloo babies, the Rev. Wlllian Towley Kingsley of South Kilverton Yorkshire, celebrated his hundredth birth day on the centenary of Waterloo. HI: father, an army surgeon, took part ii the great battle on the day on which h' was born. The Rev. Kingsley was recto at South Kilverton for over a half cen tury. i FRIENDS. Old friend, we've journeyed far and wide. O'er rugged hills and hollow's; With yearning hearts, at eventide, We’ve wataehed the homing swallows; We’ve known that bitter grief and dole That cry unheard to heaven, Like some poor, hell-bound, tortured soul, Condemned and unforgiven. Through Sin’s fair vale, near Sorrow's mart, We’ve wandered free and joyous. Where, hidden by the Tempter’s art.. Death w’aited to destroy us; We've drunk life’s bitter and its sweet, Have seen our castles tumbled In ruins at our weary feet. Yet smiled, nor even grumbled. Our blood has sanguined many a field. Though courage ne'er departed, Nor foeman forced us yet to yeld. Nor either grown faint hearted; We’ve known the peace of eventide. When day’s hard fight had ended. And sunset s crimson glory died. As earth and sky were blended. Then, too. the bliss of sweet repose. When real cares and seeming. Depart, and life’s stream gently flows To slumber s land of Dreaming; We’ve felt the fury of the blasts, And knowrn the calm succeeding. Far sw'eeter for the storm that’s past— A lesson worth the heeding. We’ve known the warmth of Summer’s sun. The blight of Winter's weather. And when, at last, our race is run, We’ll leave the track—together; Aye, hand and hand, as In the past, We ll Journey o’er the river; Together e’en unto the last— Friends now and friends forever. Discovered a wonder the other day—a man living in New York who declined a tip. He is a barber, but T do not think there are any more here like him. Now and then people get into this city who really belong out in the pure, clean placae of the world. However, they don’t often linger with us long. And this tonsoriallst —surely, he is more than an ordinary bar ber— tells me he has bought a shop in a small western town. In spite of warm weather, midsummer and all the other reasons why the theatri cal season should be dead here now, Louis Mann Is still filling the house nightly in ‘The Bubble.” It is one of the cleverest vehicles Mr. Mann has had In many sea sons and its success here is unquestion able. It gives the actor scope for his ability to portray pathos through the medium of the German dialeot. You can’t get the average New Yorker to go Into white clothes, though some of the newspapers have conducted a sort of campaign in favor of them, and there are some days in summer when the light stuff worn in the south would be a great com fort up here. But the average man who lives here knows it is a southern style— and he hateB nothing more than not look ing like a New Yorker. That’s the way most of us seem to feel about it—as soon as we get here we make every possible effort to acquire a "local” appearance.

Ask the Owner Some one lias referred to this compauy as “the great home incubator of Birming ham.” We rather like the phrase, because it suggests what we have done and shall continue to do in the way of making home owning as easy as possible. Our plan of lending money at 6 per cent straight interest to those who pur chase property from us. with which to build homes, and the co-operation which we offer home-builders in the matter of plans and practical advice based on long experience has not. only resulted In the construction of a great many homes which would not otherwise have been built, but it has also made our relations with customers unusually satisfactory. We can safely say. "Ask the owner" of the home which we have financed. We will lie content with the answer. Birmingham Realty Co. 2118 First Avenue May Change Bill Regulating Salaries of Local County Officers By HUGH W. ROBERTS Montgomery, July 24.—(Special.)—It is very probable that the senate will amend the house bill regulating salaries of of ficials of Jefferson county so that tht judge cf probate in the future will receive $6500 per annum, rather than $6000. The bill, as it is at present, declares that the sheriff shall be paid $6000, and the probate judge $5000. There are many wl.o think that the probate judge should be more handsomely remunerated than the sheriff Senator Judge this afternoon de clared that he was inclined to this view, and indicated that the bill, as a result of his suggestion, will he amended in th* senate. It is learned that a majority of the dele- ^B gallon feels as does Senator Judge, and ^Bj that as a result his amendment will be ^B concurred in when it is sent hack to ^B the house. ^B Inasmuch as present officials of Jeffer sen will not be affected by the provision* ^B of the bill, and because it would be con- ^B sidered presumptions should prospective ^B candidates unnecessarily agitate them- ^B selves in this respect, no opposition to the ^B passage of the measure has been devel- Bll oped. H PEOPLE WHO GET ALL THE TROUBLES By LUC1LE2 CAINE Some people imagine that all the worries of life are manufactured solely for themselves—you or I have no part or lot in them. T remember Dean Hole telling the story of two people he knew. One of them had had a bad attack of Influenza, and, hearing that an acquaintance was recovering from a similar illness, he called upon him to express his sym pathy with him. He listened to a long account of the patient’s illness. "I know—I know," he murmured, sympathetically. "Had the same thing myself." The Invalid went on to tell him how he had felt as if a Scottish bagpiper had been playing inside his brain while walking up and down on it in very heavy boots. "T know—I know," murmured the visitor, “I’ve had just the same thing." "Then,” the invalid informed him. “it seemed as if the ceiling were slowly descending upon him to crush him to death. That made him so hot he burst out In a profuse perspiration, and -” “I know. Just the same feeling T hao.” murmured the visitor. "Just the sarr e.” The invalid stretched out his hand to the bell and rang for the servant to show his visitor out. “Confound your feelings," he roared. “What on earth do you come here for. to inflict your feelings on me? If you’d really felt as 1 felt you wouldn’t be alive today. No sir, I don't believe it a bit. You’re out for sympathy, and you won’t get It from me." Just so. It is the little worries and bothers that excite most people to chatter respecting them. They come hard on the people who expect every thing to happen as they wish. I remember Bennett Burleigh, the v. nr correspondent, telling of a friend of his who was accustomed to tak<* tiomps in foreign countries in real tramp fashion. He had a longing for seeking the adventures that come to a fellow wandering about without a penny In his pocket. Upon one occa sion, however, he thought he vrould try doing a country luxuriously, and. putting 60 pounds in his pocket, he started for Spain. He was robbed the first week of every penny he pos sessed, and fell back on the "simple life” once more. He was thoroughly enjoying himself again whe he chanced to meet a millionaire “doing the coun try.” The millionaire was full of ex plosive grumbles at the way he had been treated at inns, and the places he had put up at. Hadn’t the other man noticed how miserable the accom modation was? The food was atrocious, the waiting vile, the beds full of fleas. The other had noticed nothing of the kind. ‘Seems to me,” he said "you've perhaps been over concerned about lux uries. As a matter of fact, I haven't slept In a bed for some weeks, so I’ve escaped the fleas. It would be a hard job for my meals to be spoiled in the cooking. There’s not much cooking about an onion and bread and cheese, end no waiters wanted. Tt*s clear I’ve e«cr,pad a lot. Perhaps It’s the fellow who wants things too easy who is in for the most disappointments?” T remember Mrs. Maxwell—better known to you, perhaps as Miss Brad don, the celebrated novelist—relating how a celebrated doctor was one even ing at a dinner where some of the dishes were not perhaps quite up to the mark. It was a splendid affair of many courses. The lady grumbled frightfully about the cooking, and expressed as much regret for it to the doctor as If he were in peril of starvation. "Don’t bother about me, madam,” he growled at last. In tones that started the whole table, causing people to pause in the conveyance of delicious morsels to their mouths and look at him. “Don’t worry about me, madam. T have been today to see a patient with a wife and three children and nothing In the house to eat. When I hear you grumbling at your food, I wonder what you would do if you hadn’t the food to grumble at.” When one contrasts the little petty irritations of some people with the ac tual privatldns of others they assume a hideous aspect of insensibility to oth e-s’ hardships that make them ugly Jars. By LOUISE HEILGERS. The man who declared publicly the other day that marriage was a speculation was wrong. Most men are, by the way, in their privatae momenta. Marriage is not a speculation any more than it Is a lottery or any other game of chance. It la an investment. Aak any married man. The gay bache lor may tell you. with a side wink, that . he haa speculated in “little Dolly Day dreams. front raw choruses, third to the i. left,’’ but the gayest of husbands havs never yet speculated in a wife. He thor oughly invested in her. so thoroughly that he will never be able to realize any pro or post nuptial stock. Marriage is the war office of love. Once Inside Its chaste portals you become a dif ferent being. Matrimony ties you up fn her trousseau ribbons and commonsense and freedom go from you like dreams. You cannot speculate, for you save notn ing to specualte with—not even money. That is required for housekeeping ex penses and your wife’9 frocks.. You may not speculate in outside flirtations or specialize in carefully chosen friendship* with members of the opposite sex. Body and soul, you have sold your all. And yet those who have never tried it still speak of marriage as a speculation. Walt a moment, though. I have for gotten something. You can always specu late on this, of course. you married peo ple—on the chance of your partner in the matrimonial market running away. This doesn't always happen, alas; but it comes off sometimes. Somebody asked me the other day if I thought a husband a worse investment than a wife. It's hard to say, really: but I think a husband is easier got r!d of than a wife, if that’s any advantage. But then, on the other hand, there are wives who. no matter how bad an investment a . man turns out to be. apply the Kelson | touch to him—they refuse to see what they dont’ want to. J ■ Though there are wives, of course, not to he caught napping. As an old acquaint ance of mine remarked mournfully of Ids I little lot—about 200 pounds of it, and all in the pink of condition—“She’s not even a sleeping partner. It doesn't matter what time T come in. she’s always awake.” And yet, probably, if she had always | been asleep he would have grumbled, too.
