Some Gossip Gathered From
The Gay American Metropolis
New York Feb. , 22. During the re
cent Chapman-Alexander evangelistic
meeting in Brooklyn noon revivals
were held at the Opera house. One
day the early arrival at the theater
were surprised to find the stage occu
pied by a ballot dancer rehearsing an
oriental dance. During the morning
hours the stage was always used for
rehearsals, but as a rule care was tak
en to atop the rehearsals noma .time
before the time set for the revival. On
this occasion, however, the rehearsal
was continued a lit t lo too long. It
is an interesting fart that ou the fol
lowing day, by a strange coincidence
a large number of the revivalists ar
rived at the opera house morq than
half an hour ahead of the lime set for
When the first subway line in New
York was opened to traffic in 1904,
there were many persons who, realiz
ing the enormous cost of the tunnels,
seriously doubted that the traffic
would ever pay a fair return upon the
inveated capital. The figures publish
ed after the subway had been in op
eration for one year dispelled all mis
givings as to the profitableness of the
system; but even that favorable show
ing was not believed to indicate that
there would be any appreciable in
crease for many years. Yet, after
three years of operation the ticket
sales on one single section, between
Ninety-sixth street and South Ferry,
were greater than on the entire sys
tern during the first year of operation.
During the year 1910 the ticket
sales for the entire system aggregated
270,321,490, against 116.209,313 in 1905.
This shows that the traffic has more
than doubled during the last five
years. The greatest Increase was re
above Ninety-Sixth street, which in
creased from 9, 112,575 in 1905 to
32,752,668 in 1910.
on a stove. It required considerable
coaxing and persuasion to convince
the girls that the electric irons are
quite harmless, if handled properly,
and do their work much better and
quicker than the old fashioned, stove-
heated flatlrons. ,
Once more a cao has come to pub
lic notice. In which two half-grown
boys became amateur highway rob
bers after they had witnessed a mov
Ing picture show, depleting the meth
ods of modern highwaymen. The two
youthful wouldbe robbers attacked
two smaller boys, but were scared
away before they had time to rob
them of their pennies. One of the lit
tle Yictlms, who had been roughly
handled by the "highwaymen," be
came so frightened, that the doctors
feared be would not recover from the
shock. And still the moving picture
houses are permitted to display crime
depicting films, which are bound to
cause trouble by suggesting imitation
of the depicted scenes to impression
able boys in the audience.
A burglar fond of crullers, music
and good clothes, broke Into the apart
ment of a wealthy resident of Mt.
Vernon the other night, feasted on a
dozen crullers which be found in the
pantry and then left the premises, tak

clothes with him as souvenirs. The
burglar evidently had a cast iron con

any of the hospitals, notwithstanding
the fact that he had eaten half a doz
Some of the large clothing manu

shops largely upon girls from the Pol

the, lower East Side, were confronted
with an unexpected predicament re
cently, after they had modernized
their establishments by installing el
ectric light, heat and power. Former
ly the irons for pressing the finished
garments were heated on stoves, but
a great deal of time was lost by that
antiquated method and the manufac
turers introduced irons heated by el
ectricity. For some -unaccountable
reason the girls were afraid of the
electric irons i and rather sacrificed
their positions than to handle the mys

from rheumatism. During that
time, no telling how many gal

with but little relief. Recently,
I was confined to mytbed help

Got Ease in Less Than Ten Minutes.
Mr. James E. Alexander, of North Harpswell, Me., writes: I am

brought on rheumatism in the sciatic nerve. I had it so bad one night
when sitting in my chair, that I had to jump on my feet to get relief. I
at once applied your

How New York Wastes Money.
From the New York World.
A committee appointed by Mayor
Gaynor is preparing a full list of land
belonging to the city for which no use
has yet been found. Parcels worth
$18,000,000 will be reported to the
sinking fund commission. The water
department alone has seventy use
less acres of Jerome Park reservoir
lands, worth $2,000 a lot or more; and
parcels in Westchester county bought
years ago, never needed and almost
forgotten. There Is $4,000,000 worth
of school sites, often taken at extrav
agant prices to enrich politicians.
There are Hunts Park and Klssena
Park of malodorous memory. Scarce
ly a department that has not had un
needed land sold to it. At a moder
ate estimate $10,000,000 worth of this
land is so situated that it will never
be needed and may best be sold. On
that sum the city now pays four and
one-quarter per cent interest, or $425.-
000. If the lands were sold, the city
would presently get more than $100.
000 in taxes from them a net -gain
sufficient to pay the interest on six or
eight miles of local subways. This is
only one of a hundred forms in which
graft and wa6te have pinched New
York. If for ten years only the city
administration will keep incessantly
at the work of modernizing methods,
eliminating graft, collecting the public
dues, reforming its bookkeeping, stan
dardizing and watching its purchases
and if meantime it pursues a progress
ive policy of rapid transit and dock
improvement, we may easily enjoy
the lowest city taxation rate in the
WHAT OTHERS SAY
organisms are found plentifully In
persons who seem to suffer from
nothing worse thaji a common cold -in
the head. But in the seemingly gen- j
ulne cases of grip the micrococcus
that usually causes pneumonia is
found. The Medical Journal hints that
all these basterial affections of the
nose, throat and lungs are nearly al
lied, and calls impatiently for an Ehr
lich to devise a specific bactericidal
substance that will at once effectively
deal with them.
Hard to Keep.
From the Philadelphia Press.
English divines have a plan to
shorten the Ten Commandments. Con
densation will not make it any eas
ier to keep them.
From London Opinion.
Canada and U. S. not Canada and
Hritish exhibitos at the Argentine
exposition held in Buenos Aires re
ceived an excellent return for their
trouble, placing orders aggregating no
less than $14,599,000.
Kindness to Dumb Animals.
From the Columbus Dispatch.
Kansas City is going to try to de
velop a system by which teachers in
the public schools will be required to
spend .half an hour each day in teach
ing children kindness to dumb anim
als. The humane society of that city
has been asked to draw up a bill and
present to the. legislature which will
make this compulsory. Certainly par
ents should lead in such instruction,
and no child should be permitted to
have a pet cat, dog or bird, unless it
Is treated kindly. Such home instruc
tion, extended by teachers in the
schools, will have a lasting benefit on
Cruelty is oftener due to thought
lessness than to a real intention of be
ing unkind, and a word in time may
prevent it. There is a financial side
to the treatment of animals, especial
ly to those on the farm. Neglect and
cruelty there lessen the value of the
stock, and the prices they might bring.
Animals left .out in all kinds of weath
er are incapable of the best work, and
certainly the selling price is lessened.

has been afflicted during the past few
weeks with what the doctors have

itself at a loss how to classify them,

symptoms of the European grip of

presence of .grip bacilli, while these
