Moreover the city manager plan leaves the electors free to choose candidates on thei basis of their representative character unfettered by any implied requirements as to executive experi ence or capacity to earn a large salary. It therefore involves an abandonment of the unscientific plan of attempting to select executive ex perts by popular elections for short terms. In short it constitutes a na tural and effective solution of govern mental forms under American condi tions." Regarding public control, of public utilities, Mr. Woodruff said: "The question is not: Shall there lie public control or none, but as to the form of that control. It is now generally conceded that public utili ties, and chief among these are municipal utilities, must be carefully supervised and controlled so that the rights of the communities and of the users may be adequately protected. That is municipal advance." The commission form of city gov ernment, he continued, although first tried only thirteen years ago, has lost its novelty as an experiment, and the core idea has gained in popularity with remarkable rapidity. "Non-partisianship," he asserted, "has been the aim of the newer forms of government. It has been promoted by ignoring party designations on the ballot and eliminating the party ticket and the machinery by which it has been brought forth.

These three movements: Non partisianship, the direct election of federal senators and municipal home rule, all represent municipal advance of the most effective kind, in that they place municipal affairs clearly on their own basis, freed from outside, and alien Inuences and give to our cities opportunity fully to develop their re sources and along democratic lines." Mr. Woodruff pointed out the diffi culties of introducing efficient manage ment into city business. "The 'bread and butter brigade,'" he said, "has been alone and the same time the greatest bulwork of the modern pali tical organization ,and the greatest obstacle in the way of introduction of modern efficiency methods. The civil service movement is steadily making inroads on the 'bread and butter bri gade' and instilling new ideas of loyal ty and service into the minds and con duct of public employes." The speaker advocated the extension of courses to educate experts for city government. "We are training men today for all services," he said, "but that of the public." Another municipal advance he pointed out was the changing idea of social service. Until recently, this has been confined in popular estimate to what is known as charity, in the sense of almsgiving. In the same way civic work was practically confined to the effort to "drive the rascals out" of office. "Today the emphasis Is more and more placed upon the im provement of conditions so that the need of relief may be constantly diminished. The change is from an atempt to secure to an attempt to prevent. The purpose is to set higher standards and to adopt policies that will fundamentally improve the quail ties of the race." man and less of the dressmaker. It is no doubt, less true of the hats. About mere taste it is idle to dis pute. Decency is a different matter. vYhen people say that the present fashions are indecent it only means that they are new. In regard to the exposure of the person, what is decent or indecent is purely a matter of cus tom, and the custom varies from gen eration to generation and contempor aneously among: different nations. In ono of Mr. La Bouchere's paragraphs lately reprinted in Truth, ho pointed out that in the east it is indecent to expose the face while Turkish ladies thought it no shame to pull up their trousers and expose their legs in pub lic. I remember my grandmother telling mo that in her youth it was considered Immodest for a girl to show her ears in the street they should be covered with her hat or bonnet strings. Yet, at the same time, women dampened their garments to make them cling to the figure—precisely the sort of thing that is now considered so shocking by those who see it for the first time. At the seaside women can appear before a crowd in bathing costumes without reproach. For a woman, or a man, to walk down Bond street in a bathing dress would be considered so indecent that the, police would probably inter fere. Yet If it became the fashion to walk about London in bathing dresses, nobody would see any harm in it after the first week or two. In the abstract there is no such thing as decency or Indecency in dress. A point which does not seem to be noticed is that the present fashions must bring enormous profits to the dressmakers. A woman's dress todav contains but a fraction of the ma terial that it did twenty years ago, yet the price is the same or higher—prob ably higher. The loss on petticoats must be inconsiderable beside the in creased profit on the outer garment. BALLAD.

A countryman living just beyond the outskirts of London drove to the me tropolis one day to order a few pro visions, etc. (By the way, this account is perfect ly true. It Is not a problem or a joke. The prices stated can be verified.) The countryman first went to the nearest cobbler's. There he bought a good pair of shoes. Not shoddy foot wear, carelessly turned out or even machine made, but hand sewed and of fine, strong leather. For this pair of shoes he paid Just 7 cents. Next he drove to a butcher stall In Smithfleld. There he bought a sheep, a dozen chickens and ten pounds of beef. For the sheep he paid 10 cents. For the chickens be paid VA, cents apiece, or 18 cents for the dozen. The ten pounds of beef cost him a nickel. For beef was half a cent a pound. Stowing away his purchases in his big wagon, the farmer next stopped at a fish stall, where for 10 cents he bought twenty-flve big codfish. His visit to the grain merchant cost him more. For he was forced to pay 15 cents for a bushel of rye—a sum out of all proportion to his earlier pur chases. It was cheaper,.you see, to buy meat than the rye bread to eat it with. But his ensuing trip to the draper's for enough homespun cloth to provide him with a winter suit atoned for the high price of the grain. For he found that the stout homespun cloth was sell ing at 12 cents an ell, or 93-5 cents a yard. The farmer had no trouble in carry ing his wares home in his wagon. For the wagon was large. He had driven it to London full of firewood, and this wagon load of wood he had sold for 12 cents. The foregoing prices are all accurate. The high cost of living had not yet hit England. For, you see, all this hap pened several years ago. In fact, It was at the beginning of the sixteenth century. New York World. METEORIC SHOWERS. Why They Have Little or No Effect Upon the Earth's Balance. In answer to the query, "The earth is held In its orbit by the absolute bal ance of centripetal and centrifugal forces, and if the balance were dis turbed the earth should fly away into space or fall to the sun, yet this bal ance is continually disturbed by me teors and other causes and no catas trophe occurs please explain," Edgar Lucien Larkin, In the New Tork Amer ican, says: "There is no centrifugal force as such In nature. What so appears is reaction against gravity due to the motion of the earth. Inertia, an Inherent prop erty of all matter, would forever main tain a moving body in an absolutely straight line in its original direction unless some outside force draws it aside. The direction of drawing aside is always toward the outside disturbing mass—the sun in this case. And the earth thus continually falls from a straight line—a tangent—to its orbit through a distance of one-ninth of an inch during each second. "If gravitation should suddenly be annihilated the earth would fly away on a straight line into space. But should a trillion tons of meteors sud denly fall on the earth it would not fall to the sun, but would still revolve around it much faster on a smaller orbit. The year would be shorter. And the new orbit assumed would be deter mined in space by the equilibrium of central gravitation and the reaction of inertia of the earth against it. But since the setting up of the grand mas ter clock in Greenwich no variation of the length of the sidereal year has been detected. Therefore the mass of all the millions of meteors falling on the earth daily is too small to have any appreciable effect on the length of the year." Queer Bridge Foundation. At the little town of Wadebridge, Cornwall, England, there is a bridge of a unique character.
