Now York, Oct. 27.—The practice
ot feeding horses on banana peelings
lias b^cox.ie Quite common since some
one set the example on the theory that,
the peeling* were handy and the
horse* were rlenty in the streets, ii
was a good tiling to introduce them to
each other. So whenever there was a
horso 'and a banana seller there was
tho inevitable benevolent person who
doesn't believr in wasting anything,
and so carefully gives the animal
what "ie ctrnot eat himself. The
horses- devour the skins with avidity.
Put now comos n wise horse owner,
who says Don feed that horse with
those banana reelings." And he pro
ceeds t.i say that he has lost a horse
and neaib left others by their being
Riven such pttllrgs that they are
very tn.1i.r.us to the animals. This
ft'tiing of the skins to the horsts in
the. streets tends to increase the
chances of human life, as otherwise
the skins contrive to get on the side
walks, and if there is anything that
willl floor a man or woman sooner,
or more completely than banana skins
it has not yet been brought to public
notice. If the banana skin went in
the horse's mouth it certainly would
not be found upon the sidewalk, and
the respectable but careless citizen
would not be floored. But it may be
set down as a fact that banana skins
are not good for horses.
In the election now going on every
body seems to have his say. great or
small. The columns of the newspapers
are full of letters from everybody and
anybody, some in favor of Hearst, and
some in favor of Hughes, praising or
blaming. And the newspapers seem to
publish them without much regard to
whom they favor. It .seems to be a
grand presentation to the public to let
off their surplus knowledge and public
interest. And everybody is available
himself of the opportunity. And so
a great variety of points is brought
out, and the candidates will contrive
to get committed to as great a variety
of opinions as were ever presented to
the American people since the country
was first settled. Such a mixture of
parties was never seen before, and
it seems as if the way nowadays to
run political campaigns is to go back
on your own candidates, and support
the opposite side in order to show
your independence. Nobody takes up
an idea than another person of op
posite political fuithcomcs forward and
accuses one of stealing the ideas of
that party, from which It would ap
pear that both parlies believe the same
thing, and that the election Is being
held only to choose persons nol
Rev. Dr. Parkhuftst's neW church is
a distinct addition to the attractive
notable places of worship in this city.
It is remarkablo for its originality. Its
breaking away from conventional
lines, and its remarkable color scheme,
which is blue, white and yellow. The
dome is tiled, showing an alternating
pattern of green and yellow, the green
serving as a background. To sustain
and enrich the effect the dome Is sur
mounted with a golden lantern. Dr.
Parkhurst holds his people the same
as ever, and it may be attributed
largely to his courage, such as was
shown in his eulogy of Stanford White,
the architect whom Thaw killed, and
who was covered with obloquy so
deeply by Thaw and the press. Park
hurst spoke tenderly of him and the
act was a noble one, and showed that
the great lighter of vice, and the stern
and unrelenting foe of every defender
of graft is as true to a friend as to a
principle. Probably there is no other
minister In New York City who would
have taken the risk that Parkhurst did
in standing up for a man whom the
community had come to so generally
condemn. It is that kind of public
men that hold the people against
everything, who stand by their friends
no matter how unpopular they may
have become. Certainly Stanford
White was a great architect, and
Parkhurst's church will stand as an
enduring monument of his skill.
Within a few weeks New York will
have the benefit of one of the most
wonderful electrical inventions of the
/ige—the telharmonic. This is an
instrument for the transmission of
music from a central keyboard to the
homes, restaurants and public places
of the citv. At a cost of more than
$30,000 the central music "plant" has
been established at a convenient point
in Manhattan. The instrument is vir
tually perfected, and In a short time,
it is expected, the company will be
ready to offer its musical wares to the
public. At no great cost the house
holder, flat dweller or restaurant pro
prietor may have a telharmonic in
stalled, connected by wire with the
central intrument or instruments, and
by simply pushing the button will be
able to turn on the music. The instru
ment that will be placed in the home
is a small affair, and can easily be hid
den by a grouping of flowers or potted
plants. Four grades of music will be
available, grand opera, pipe organ,
•orchestral or piano. Tests thus far
made show that the rich tones of the
centra! instrument are preserved in
transmission, and there is no marring
ot the music by tlje rasping sound of
flhe phonograph. The inventor of the
telharmonic and the capitalists who
•jrc backing him are confident that the
instrument will not only have connec
tions with '-thousands of homes here,
•but will soon be used almost univer
sally by the restaurant keepers.
A mati went Into a Broadway drug
fctore and asked the clerk for a remedy

Kind of measurement is that?" "It
Hsn't new," replied the clerk, "and it
is very simple. Just take a dime and

That will be the proper dose. You
wouldn't get it any more exact if you

New York is to have a colossal
peace monument 700 -feet high, to be
erected on the banks of the Hudson
river at ft cost of $5,000,000, if the am
bitious wishes of F. Wellington
Ruckstuhl, the New York sculptor, and
member of the National Sculpture so
ciety, who was chief sculptor of the
St. L.ouis exposition, are regarded and
carried into effect. This scheme was
outlined several years ago by the Na
tional Sculpture society, which Karl
Bitter is president of. Nothing came
of it, although it was thought that
$2,500,000 would be sufficient to carry
it out. That sum was not offered by
the public, and recently a syndicate of
wealthy patrons of art has been
formed, the original scheme has been
enlarged and a large part of the
$5,000,000 required has been pledged.
It Is the purpose of Mr. Ruckstuhl to
execute the monument in the shape of
an Immense Ionic column 600 feet high.
It will rest on a double-story building
about 100 feet cubti, the whole resting
on a platform 300 feet square. Ele
vators will run to the top, on which a
glass globe forty v feet in diameter
will serve as a lighthouse. A figure of
Victorious Peace, 100 feet high, will
stand in front of tle column.
Among the most iimusing incidents
of this very amusing* campaign is the
remai'kable specimen's of politicians
that have emerged from obscurity to
take an active part i.a it. And among
them nohe is more odd than Oscar
Sufrin, 15 years old, of Broome street,
who was arrested by a policeman for
holding forth on a stump without a
permit. Upon the court's questioning
him, he said he acbed as chairman
that he is an officer of the Albeit
Lucas clubj a boy's political organiza
tion, and desires to aid in the election
of Adolph Stern as assemblyman and
also chief of police.! He said he was
about to introduce ISddie Friedman to
the constituents wlien the policeman
interfered. The magistrate told him
that was enough, but Sufrin still kept
on talking, complaining that the po
liceman had smasluKl his rostrum.
Oscar came from Russian parents, who
not long ago were peasants in Minsk,
Russia. The boy is one of the clev
erest scholars in pubdlc school No. 7!,
where he has shown marked talents
in elocution and verse writing.
The British school teachcvs, who to
the number of 500 w'dl visit this coun
try for a tour during the winter, rep
resent every class, from kindergarten
and defective .senses Instructors to-the
professors of England's universities.
They haVe beert scle.cted from thou
sands of applic ints who have mad"
known their desi.*e to visit the United
States since the announcement was
made several months ago that a series
of excursions for teachers was being
planned. About "thirty will sail on
Nov. 30, constituting the advance
guard, and slmilaj- parties will sail
weekly thereafter until the end of
March. Mr. Mosely, who has charge
of the enterprise, has preceded them,
and has been here a couple of weeks
to look after the arrangements. Mr.
Moseley considers the American sys
tem more practical than the English
system, and says the American boy is
kept in school lon&er, and monev is
more lavishly spent in America for
education. The pay of teachers, how
ever, is relatively lower in this coun
try than in Great Britain, and Mr.
Moseley considers that Wje neglect the
musical education of our children.
Women Cannot Cnt Diamonds.
**A lot of women seem to be possessed
these days of au arabition to learn the
trade of diamond cutting," the New
York Sun reports one jeweler as say
ing. "Every little while an applicant
for a situation as an apprentice gives
us a call. But we can't afford to give
them a trial. They can never master
the art In other branches of the jew
elry trade women have made some un
qualified successes. Not one of Eve's
daughters, from royalty down, I should
say, that isn't an artist In the wearing
of diamonds. Many are well versed
in the tricks of bu.vtog and selling them,
while others give excellent satisfaction
la polishing and preparing them
for the market But when it comes to
the real cutting of the stones they lack
the patience, judgment and steadiness
of nerve which constitute the expert's
slock in trade."
The Mnrrel of Notre Dame.
Often as I have seen Notre Dame,
the marvel of it never grows less. I go
to Paris with no thought or time for it,
busy about many other things, and
then on my way over one of the
bridges across the river perhaps I see
it again on its island, the beautiful
towers high above the high roofs of
houses and palaces, and the view, now
so familiar, strikes me afresh with all
the wonder of my first Impression.
The wonder only seems greater If I
turn, as I am always tempted to, and
walk down the quays on the left bank,
the towers before me and with every
step coming more and more complete
ly together, by the Pont Neuf, to the
island and at last to the great square
where Notre Dame fronts me in its
superb calm.—Elizabeth Robins Pen
