creating n great deal of interest in the
columns of the Intelligencer. The
wit and humor in them are considered
very entertaining, and the mentioning
of different parties, names in the arti

more zest. While these communica

to be derived by careful perusal.
- CITIES IN 1910.
We are four years away from the
next Federal census, but the statistic
al prophets are busy with estimates,
computations and forecasts of the
population of the cities in 1910. Ksli
niates of the growth of the urban cen
tres made before the census ol 1900
were approximately correct in many
instances. The Census Bureau pins
its faith to a certain law respecting
the rate of increase of population de
duced from previous census figures.
Much interest therefore attaches to an
estimate, published in the New York
Snn, of the population of fifteen cities
at the next census, made by an ex
pert statistician who has had extended
experience in the Census Bureau.
The figures are based upon the past
rate of growth, city directories, police
censuses and upon the increase in the
number of dwellings. The tremend
ous building operations in the great
cities for some years past show that
there has been no pause in the yearly
increase of population. According to
this authority, New York in 1910
will have a population of 4,437,202,
a gain of 1,000,000. Chicago, firm
ly holding second place, will contain
2,298,575 inhabitants, a gain of 600,-
000. Philadelphia will follow with
1,818,6.(7, a gain of 525,000 —a re
latively greater increase than that of
Chicago. St. Louis will make an ex
cellent showing, with 975,238, a gain
of 400,000. Boston will stand in the
fifth place—74o,B92—a gain of IKO,
000. Cleveland, with 601,768, will
closely press Baltimore, with 688,957.
The Sun correspondent commenting
upon the figures, observes that the
statistician does not allow New York
ami Chicago any material increase
over their gain in 1900. "Philadel
phia fares better, because its gain in
1900 was comparatively small."
The estimates of the population of
gome of the minor cities show surpris
ing growth. Thus Los Angeles will
have 212,479 inhabitants in 1910, a
gain of 110,000. The city will have
doubled its population in ten years.
Kansas City is credited with 303,752,
an increase of 140,000. Seattle is
also growing at a phenomenal pace.
Its population is fixed at 160,671,
gaining 80, in the t'ejade.— Public

IN THE HOUSE
HARRISBURG, Feb. 7.—A new
ituiform primary bill was introduced
ill the house this morning by Mr.
Howard,of Cameron. It does not differ
materially from other similar bills.
The Shreu amendment to the Bull it
bill, taking Philadelphia employes out
of politics, was passed finally.
The house this morning definitely
fixod February 15, as the date for ad
journment sine die.
The Hoke bill, limiting to $750,000
the amouut to bo annually spent on
bridges, by the board of public grounds
and buildings, was 'amended slightly
and passed on third reading.
Wheu the Cook Greater Pittsburg
bill, as amended in the senate, came
tip in the house, Mr. Cook asked that
the house concur.
Mr. Henderson,of Allegheny, fought
concurrence, asserting that his amend
ment, adopted in the house last week,
was equitable and just, and that the
house should not roverso itself at the
request of the senate.
HITCHCOCK IN FAVOR.
Mr. Hitchcock, of Tioga, stated that
he would vote for concurrence since
Allegheny voters have shown by not
presenting petitions, etc., that they
don't care ono way or the othor. Mr.
Riley of Allegheny rose to reply to Mr.
Garner, who spoke 011 the bill.
"The gentleman from Schuylkill,"
said Mr. Riley, "has declared himself
the champion of the Allegheny county
Mr. Garner—"Mr. Speaker, I never
said anything of the kind, aud the
geut'eiuan from Allegheny lies."
Mr. Riley—"You did, just a while
Mr. Garner then explained why he
had voted for the ripper.
Tho Cook Greater Pittsburg bill was
dually agreed to.
WORK OF SENATE.
The senate laid on tho table a mo
tion to adjourn on February 15, and a
motion to ask the governor to eularge
his call so that the legislature may in
vestigate state departments and report
at a special session of the legislature
on August 1, met tho same fate.
The senate this morning agreod to a
resolution, providing that a copy of
the report of the committee that in
vestigated tho insurance department
be sent to the govoruor and attorney
general for tho consideration of the
recommendation therein contained.
The senato passed finally tho corrupt

The pavements in many placos are
quite icy and great care should be ex
orcised by persons in walking. It is
at such times as the presout rather
thau when a coat of sleet covers the
sidewalks that persons become negli
gent, and dangerous falls occur. Many
a fall with the consequent broken
limb results in something worse than
a siego of typhoid fever or kindred ill
ness. llow often it occurs, especially
with those advanced in years, that a
slight fall renders the victim a cripple
for life. Property owners also have a
duty in the premises. Upon them it
devolves to keep the sidewalks as clear
of ice as possible. Every bit of water
that is permitted to find its way to the
sidewalks, either from a loaky con
ductor or from a hydrant kept running
is sure to freezo solid over night. This
is bad enough when exposed, but when
the ico is partly coucealed by suow it
becomes a veritable trap. Whero ice
can not bo avoided the pavement should
bo rendered safo by sprinkling saw
dust or some similar substauco upon
it. In fact evory method should bo cm- j
ployed to reduco all danger to a miu- j
Tl»e Tumi Is the Moxt tirneefnl of the j
JumperM of the Sea.
Many of the inhabitants of the sea
are good jumpers and soni£ have be
come famous. Among them should be
mentioned the tarpon or silver king, a
huge lisli with scales that gleam like
silver, which constitutes the famous
game lish of Florida. The leaps of this
beautiful creature are often astonish- j
ing. Several years ago a steamer was
rushing down the St. Johns river. The j
captain was sitting on the fore deck, j
leaning against the pilot house, when
suddenly there rose In the air a beauti
ful shining iish four feet hi length. It
came on like an arrow and landed in
the lap of the captain as neatly as j
though it h id been placed there.
In the Vaciflc waters the tuna, nn
ally of the horse mackerel, is noted
for its leaps. Sometimes a school
sweeps up the coast and the powerful
flsh, often weighing 800 pounds, are
seen in the air in every direction. They
are like an arrow, turn gracefully five
or six feet in the alp and couie down,
keeping the water for acres in a foam,
and if lint the greatest jumpers they
are certaiuly the most graceful of the
leapers of the sea.
PROBE POINTS WAY
HARRISBURG. Feb. 7.—As expect
ed the probe of the insurance depait
ment revealed aud the report of the in
vestigating committee strongly urges
prosecutions. The recommendations,
seven in number, made by the com
"First—That the insurauce commis
sioner as well as all other officers, em
ployees, servants aud ageuts of the
Commonwealth, so far as practicable,
should be on a salaried basis and that
all fees now authorized or hereafter to
bo authorized by law, should be paid
by the commissioner to the State trea
surer for the use of the State.
"Second—That the actuary of the in
surance department should be au offic
er of the Commonwealth required to
act exclusively in that capacity, for
which he should receive a salary of
$5,000 per annum aud bo provided with
au adequate corps of competent assist
ants to he on a salaried basis.
SHOULD BE STATE OFFICIALS.
"Third—That instead of examiners
of insurance companies being sclocted
promiscuously and paid by the com
panies examined one or as many ex
aminers of insurance companies as may
be necessary should be officers
of the Commonwealth and that the
cost of the examination of the insttr
auce companies when made by him
should bo upon a fixed rate proportion
ate to the work done aud its cost paid
iuto the State treasury for the use of
"Fourth—Fees and charges'of the
insnrauce department and taxes paid
by insurance companies should bo re
duced, so as to lessen the burden upon
the policy holders.
"Fifth—There should be a complete
reorganization of the clerical force in
the iusurauco department and the pre
sent systom of allowing the insurance
commissioner to draw upon tho State
treasurer for any sums ho may consid
er necessary as an expense of the office,
DEMAND ARREST OF GUILTY.
"Sixth—Provision should bo made
for a quarterly audit of the accounts of
the various State officials receiving
money or haviug in their control or
subject to their charge any contingent
fund either by special officer constitu
ted by law for the purpose or a special
assistant in the office of the auditor
"Seventh—The committee further
recommends to the attention of the
governor and the attorney general the
testimony given which may tend to es
tablish malfcasaucc by former com
missioners Georgo B. Luper, James H.
Lambert, Israel \V. Durham and their
subordinate, and especially in so far
as it relates to the receiving of a part
of the actuary's compensation during
their respective administrations, and
also to the testimouy that during the
administration of Israel \V. Durham,
the State was defrauded by vouchers
being granted and payment made for
services which had never been render
ed or for which there was no legal
Library Repairs Progressing.
Repairs in the Thomas Beaver Free
Library are progressing very satisfact
prily. The walls and woodwork in the
two reading rooms and in the hallway
are being prepared—the walls for the
calcimining and the wood work for
the "doing over" that will givo it
the natural lustre it possessed when
new. The gas pipes and the chandeliers
have been taken down and the naked
and torn up apartments boar little re
semblance to the cozy and nicely ap
pointed quarters which have afford
ed our townspeople so much pleasure
during twenty years past.
The plau to close the building dnr
| ing the progress of the work—which
may occupy three weeks or more—as
decided upon at first may be modified
somewhat. The removal of the gas pipe
and the chaudeliers makes it impossi
| hie to use the building at night, but
there may be certain stages of the
work when people could bo admitted
to the building in the daytime with
out interfering with the work. On the
whole it docs not seem unlikely that
during the progress of tho repairs some
such arraugemout may bo made that
will enable patrons to return books
due and tako out new ones.
The library was closed Monday and
, yesterday, a largo placard on the door
i settiu r forth the reason for keeping
tho buildiug closed. The library will
also bo closed today and not unlikely
■ during the rest of the week.

THE HOTEL CHILD.
Dnngera That De*et (ho Lackleu Off
■ print? of IlentlenM Parents.
It is not the material aids to ex
istence which are the bane of the hotel
; child; it is the mcutal and spiritual at
! titude accompanying this life which
is to be deprecated. It destroys a
democratic spirit through emphasizing
the difference between the servant and
the served, it exaggerates the power
of money, fosters a spirit of depend
' enee and unfits the pampered Indlvld
' ual for any other kind of life, and,
worst of all, in a child so brought up
there can be no understanding or love
of home. There may be some future
for the child who knows nothing of
art, some function for the one to whom
literature makes no appeal and who is
not sensitive to music, but there is no
place lu the state for the man who has
neither Initiative, self reliance, patriot
ism nor love of home. He is a social
menace, a disease. The community is
better off without this satellite of tho
parasite of the bell boy and
source of supply for the waiter.
If there is one child in eur communi
ty who is superfluous it is the hotel
child. As places for temporary occu
pation by homeless and childless adults
hotels are to be tolerated, but as real
deuces for children they are without
the possibility of excuse.—Miss Martha
S. Beusley In Everybody's Magazine.
DIED WITH HIS CHUM.
A Deed of Ilerolmn That Stirred mn
In the reminiscences of General Sir
•Evelyn Wood, himself a brave English
soldier, a touching instance of courage
nnd self sacrifice is given. One June
day In 18S5 a detachment of English
marines was crossing the Woronzow
road under Arc from the Russian bat
teries. All of the men reached shelter
in the trenches except a seaman, John
Blewitt. As ho was running a terrific
roar was heard. His mates knew the
voice of a huge camion, the terror of
the army, and yelled:
"Look out! It is Whiotiiug DlcUl"
But at the moment Blewitt was
struck by tiie enormous mass of iron
on the knees and throwu to the ground.
He called to his special chum:
"Oh, Weich, save me!"
The fuse was hissing, but Stephen
Welch ran out of the trenches and,
seizing the great shell, tried to roll it
off his CQinrado,
It exploded with such terrific force
that not an atom of the bodies of
Blewitt and Welch was found. Even in
that time when each hour had its ex
citement this deed of heroism stirred
the whole English army. One of the
oSicers searched out Welch's old moth
er in lier poor home and undertook her
support while she lived, and the story
of his death helped his comrades to
nobler conceptions of a Soldier's doty.

AS a last resort I commenced
the use of Dr. David Kennedy's
Favorite Remedy. The result is a little short of a
mirryrle. All tha terrible symptoms of this disease
at eg me. Ido not have any more difficulty in void
ing the urine, no pain or acho in the small of the
back, 110 more soreness across the loins or over the
bl.iddcr, no more constipation or other symptoms of
disease of the kidneys, liver or bladder.

Who would begrudge the cost of this medicine
(One dollar a bottle) for such a blessing or refuse
this tok n of gratitade, for being perfectly cured?
And I hope my writing this will induce others who
sutler from kidney or blood disorder to use the
medicine. My fon George suffered for many years
with a fever sore on his leg. He used one bottle of
this medicine and part of another, and as sure as I
am writing this grateful acknowledgment, his leg Is
entirely healed up."
