Fitz gives as one reason the fact' ghat the fatal accident lo Luther Mc ,Carty, at Calcary. will have a teu idency to haunt iv key and prevent 'his dome: himso'.t justice in a hitting iway Hnv ( e r. Lob is a bit incon sistent in this liienry, taking his own case an an illustr::i ion f Back in the early : "s Fitz was box Ing a friendly sotto with Con Reardon at Syracuse or Rochester. N. Y , and jpoor Reardon succumbed to a light ftap on the Jaw Ik- died shortly aft "jferwards. but the roroner's jury found jthat his death was due to the eftects of alcoholism more than to the blow. K At the time Fitzsimmons was near jy heartbroken oer the sad affair, for '.he r.nd Reardon v. ere sparring part Tners, ami he liked Con very much But fritz recovered irom the shock of the accident in time and won some of bis greatest fights after that. Pelky nal urally is badly broken up over the IP death of McCarty, but. knowing that SSlit was a mere accident, he will also lljrecover his spirits in time, and if ho V has the championship material in his isf makeup he will hold the title Pelkey im,ie at present white champion, which vi does not mean a great deal as long as Jeannette.

Vh oo JOURNALISM BEFORE CIVIL WAR A leaden casket under the corner 'stone of (he old New York Day Nur- sery and Child's hospital was un , earthed vesterdav by workmen ex- r.i i studies of the rural schools have been I made, and we yet have little accurate Information about them and little, knowledge Of the factors entering in to the problem of their improvement "V, r do know in a general way that their terms are short, their sup port inadequate, their teachers poor ly prepared, their attendance irregu lar, their management unscientific and wasteful of money, time and ener gy Their courses of study are ill adapted to their needs and the housej in which the children are taught cheap and poorly equipped and fur nished. That this is not true of all rural schools goes without saying, but It is unfortunately true in a largo measure of most of them. in all there are some 212,000 one teacher little red school houses in the 1 nited States alone, according to tllfl Washington report prepared by A. C. Monahan In this report there Is a pb ture of a one-teacher rural school house which is characterized ns A fair type of about one half of the 21LV 000 one-teacher rural schools. " Most of the original red paint seems lo have been washed off of these schools. Little Progress Made. "A general impressions has been created," says Monahan, "that there exists an American school Bysteis which is sufficient and nation wide, ' cavating for tho new Hammerstein opera house, at Fifty -first street and Lexington avenue, and a collection of relics discovered as fresh and bright as the day they were sealed up. on June 22, 1857. The workman were about to dispose of the casket as a piece of junk when Harry Hammer I stein went to Its rescue and had it opened. The contents were found to I be old New York newspapers, some of them long out of existence, papers., coins and a Bible Among the newspapers w as found ? copy of the New York Tribune ' dated Monday, June 22, 1857. It Is an eighl-page uncut sheet, and bears the nnti !.- 1 o Von, VnrV T) -i 11 ' Tribune was published every mornlnc and evening (Sunday excepted) by Greeley & McElrath In that Issue Mr Greeley announced that "The New York Tribune for alifornia. Oregon and the Sandwich Islands is published on the departure of each mail steamer for Asplnwall, at $1.50 per annum." The paper advertised the arrival of the Great Eastern at New York, and stated that tickets to view that great marvel of the seas might be purchased at all booksellers,' price 25 cents. Another advertisement that vsould look queer today was that of a de partment store which announced In big letters, with exclamation points, that it was "Selling Off: Selling Off!" It seems also that even In those days the guardians of righteousness had their troubles in New York. It Is related that "Officer Quinn of the Court of Sessions bears painful testi mony to the triumph of ruffianism in this city, having been savagely kick ed and mauled by two drunken stage drivers, named Francis Coulttnan and Thomas Burke The precious pair are locked up." And behold this foul deed- "An Infernal nltempt lo kill a wife waa made on Saturday at No .42 Ninth 'with equal educational opportunities in all parts of the country. The Im pression is erroneous. It is probably true that the public schools, both ur ban and rural, have made considerable? progress, but the marked progress has in en confined to the city and town. "The majority of rural schools are housed in uncomfortable buildings, un suitable from every standpoint, with out proper furniture or facilities fa heating, ventilating and lighting; without adeeuate provisions for guard ing the health and morals of the chl'. dren and with comparatively little equipment for teaching" Dr. Fletcher B. Dressier, school hy giene specialist in the bureau of edu cation, who Is chairman of the com mittee on scientific exhibit at the fourth international ongress. has been making a special study of the rural school building and grounds. The result ot hiB investigations, whli b is to be published in a special bulle tin, will be called to the attention of the delegates at Buffalo. Dr Dress ier found that although there is great need for reform, nevertheless the in dications at the present time point to ward a marked improvement New buildings are under construction in large numbers in many sections and. as a rule, the new buildings are n great improvement over the old ones. street Mary Elizabeth Hubbard, in her, antemortcm examination, after detailing how a beloved husband was gradually changed to a monster by rum, says that on Saturday 'he cam B to me and placed his arm around my neck. I thought he was going to ca ress me, as he was going away Soon I found that he was in the act of cut ting my throat ' " The leaden casket was 18 by IS inches and 6 inches deep Harry Hammerstein said he would turn its interesting contents over to his fath er and that proper disposition would be made of the casket.

July 18 -More money lots of it and more feeders for the Western Pacific railroad aro the first things to be got following fl9 consolidation Into unified management wlih the Denver & Rio Grande and the Missouri Pacific railroads' Ben jamln F. Bush, president of the two latter roads, arrived here today with a staff of railroad officials and thus outlined the beginning of his policy. "The 'Western Pacific has got to have money." he said, "and we all know the money market is tight Just the same, I raised upwards of S4, 000,000 for the Missouri Pacific and Rio Grande under far more discourag ing conditions and I don't think there are going to be any tremendous ob stacles In the path of getting enough money for the Western Pacific. "The road now resembles a bridge from Salt Lake to San Francisco It hasn't an) feeders. We propose to build feeders for It." Alex Robertson, Mr. Bush said, will be assistant to Ihe president of the three roads, and J. M Johnson, traf fic director of the Missouri Pacific , and Rio Grande, will extend his JuriR diction to Include tho Western Pacific. One general manager for the three I roads will be named later. Flnley Shepherd. Mr Bush said, ha;i been elected to fill the vacancy on the Rio Grande directorate caused by the resignation of Vice President Sch lacks of the Western Pacific.

'Lathering his face to an unconscious tune one morning four years ago." says the London Dallv Mall, "he hit on the jerky spasmodic bars of 'Alexander's Ragtime Band,' and" set the fashion" This is decidedly in-1 terestlng, In view of the fact that an one who can remember lvack as far as the '9i s of tho nineteenth century' recalls that ragtime ran its ranged cnurse In those flays, too. The press of ten ir more years ago contains frequent references to ragtime, and I so do the books. For Instance, Molly Elliott Beawell B novel, "Papa Bouch ard." published in 19014 has this sen tence "The sound of ragtime music I came from the two music halls across the way ' Ragtime Is practically the same thing as the "Scotch Snap." ac-1 cording to the musical authorities, I and that Is generations old.
