POOR MAN'S HOTEL Budapest Has Hostelry With Rooms for 14 Cents. Quests Served ; With Breakfast for Three Cents Building Beauty of Architecture Equipped With Meeiern Appliances. Budapest. Rooms, Including steam heat and electric light, for 14 cents a lay; breakfast of' coffee ai d rolls for I cents and dinner for 14 cents are provided at" the new Municipal Peo ple's hotel which has just been opened hers tor people whose earnings are oot more than $400 a year, says Budapest correspondent. Budapest has tor some time suf fered because of a lack of dwelling houses and reasonably priced hotels for the working classes. This need was particularly keen among the petty "Beaaaten," as all persons employed by the city or state are known, whose Income is small but who by reason of their position must keep up an ap pearance. Soma time since a large number ot houses were built by the city for Its small officials who were married. The rental, while low, was well within the means of the class of people for whom they were Intended, and at the same time Insured tbe return to the city of the money expended. It was a happy experiment. Next, the municipal authorities con sidered the matter of providing a ho tel for the transients of little means, worklngmen, clerks, small merchants and petty officials, who could not af ford to stop at even the cheapest hotels when they visited the capital. The unmarried of small wage or In come, who might want permanent quarters, slso were to be provided for. With this In view the municipal au thorities built the new People's hotel, which has just been thrown open. I was shown a large handsome four itory structure covering a corner ot a block. Tbe exterior wai aa archi tecturally beautiful as the Interior waa modern, comfortable and homelike. Many of the hotela in Vienna, Berlin, London and New York where you pay mora In tips than you do bere for your room are not half aa Inviting In ippolntments. The corridors and halls are taste fully decorated; the rooms are of fair slse, have large windows and are light and airy. Tbe furniture Is simple but serviceable. Each room has electric light, cold and warm wa ter and stesm heat, which many higher priced hotels In Budapest, Vi enna and other continental cities do not have. A bath in most European hotela costs from 25 to 50 cents. Coffee and rolls for breakfast may be had at the People's hotel for 3 cents. A plain, substantial hunger satisfying dinner, which bere as all Dver Europe Is eaten at midday, Is served for '14 cents. Should the management of tbe Peo ple's hotel, appointed by the munlct pal authorities, find that these prices are Insufficient to make the enter prise self-sustaining, th9 deficit will be charged pro rata to the rooms and meals and the prices raised accord ingly. It was explained to me that tbe project was In no sense a charity but a place where any telf-respecting worklngman, clerk or member of the mall official class may stay for a day MILLS INDUSTRY UNDER FIRE CHILDREN- or TfT LAW PENCE STAA'PX?S "J" or two or make his permanent home at a coat within his reach and that without taking all his Saratoga. In order that those whose Income en ables them shall go to a publio hos telry, those who wish to take advan tage ot the low rates must produce reasonable proof that they do not earn more than $400 a year. This may seem very small In America, but In Austria, Hungary and other continen tal countries there are hundreds of thousands of men whoso Income la eoskldMfatbly lent than than Education and recreation have not been forgotten In the People's hotel. There Is a large smoking room and a reading room where the leading news papers are ea Die. CRIPPLE'S KNEE IS CHISELED Burgeons Perforin Ramarksble Opera, tlen on Jersey City Lad De formed Blnee Childhood. Baltimore, Md. William Knerr, aged 19, of Jersey City, Is recovering from a very delicate operation' at Uni versity hospital, which the surgeons believe will save blm from being a cripple for life. For nearly an hour the surgeons chiseled the bones on the knee. It Annual Snow Enormous Cost of Maintaining Snow Plows and Crewe Much Damage Is Caused by Avalanches. Denver, Colo. The annual battle with the snow king Is on In the Rocky mountains. From the middle of Feb ruary to the 1st of May tbs struggle Is at Ita hardest Western railroads are burling tbetr giant rotarles against the drifts that threaten to Im pede transcontinental traffic Snow slides are booming down mountain sides, sweeping sway valuable timber and sometimes carrying away mining camps, villages, stage coaches and trains To secure an accurate estimate of the amount of money spent in fighting tbe snow king In tbe Rockies every winter and to cast up the total am ant of damage done by avalanches is not easy. - Authorities on the subject say that $20,000,000 would not cover the total Every western railroad Is under tre mendous expense In maintaining anow plows and their crews. The first cost of a modern rotary plow Is about $25,000, In Colorado, which contalna the highest mountains of tbe continental divide, snow fighting has been devel oped to a science. Every railroad In Colorado bas a full equipment of snow plows and maintains snow fighting crews for eight months of the year. Necessarily when tbe snows are se verest attention Is- centered on tbe main lines, which are kept clear most of the time, traffic seldom being Im peded an hour by the worst blizzard. Tbe branch lines, which penetrate tbe high bills to the mining campa, do not fare so well, and some of tbe Col orado mining towns like Sllverton and Breckenrldge are cut off from the rest of the world for weeks. In spite of the efforts of tbe snow fighters. was necessary to separate the kneecap from the bones ot tha upper and lowsr leg, tor all three had grown firmly to gether, in what Is deacrlbed aa anohyloaed condition. The surgeons placed the bones In position, separated from one another by a preparation ot white wax and lanolin, which will not yield to tbe ac tion ot the elements or tha body for nearly eight weeks. The boy has been a cripple slnoa childhood. MANY COLLEGE WOMEN WED Nearly Fifty Per Cent, of Thoaa at Mount Holyoke Happily Married. South Hadley, Mass. Nearly 60 per cent, of tha 7,000 women graduated from Mount Holyoke college are hap pily married, according to statistics compiled by Dr. Amy Hewes, profes sor of economics. No divorces have been reported in fifty years. Accord ing to her statistics, tbe average ag for graduation has fallen from 28 years and t months to 21 years V months. Most of the graduates wait three or four years after commencement be fore marriage. The college graduate mother, ac cording to statistics with reference to a certain group, has two children and mors boys are born to college women than girls. Battle Is On Probably the Moffat road, which Is the popular name for the late David H. Moffat's Denver,- Northwestern k Pacific railroad, now In course of con structlon from Denver to Salt Lake, la called upon to do more anow light ing than any other line In the world. The Denver, Northwestern ft Pacific crosses the continental divide about 60 miles west of Denver at an alti tude of more than 11,000 feet above sea level. For mllea on both sides of the di vide the snow plows are required to do heavy service. The track must be swept clean every day, for tbe reason that the high winds are constantly filling the cuts with snow. The drifts accumulate on each side of the track until the trains are overtopped many feet and they pass through miles of snow lanes, yet so systematically Is tbe track kept cleared that trafflq Is seldom Impeded. The damage caused by avalanches in tbe Rocky mountains each winter is past all accurate computation. These snowslldes are full of treachery and descend at the most Inopportune times and In tbe most unexpected places. There are some slides In the San Juan mountains In western Colo rado which follow beaten trails and which come booming down tbe slopes at about the same time each year. Their paths are avoided and they do little damage. But the average snow Jllde seems to be a creature of whlma. - It forms at the foot of some cralg far above the timber line. The winds whip the snow Into deep drifts at tbe head of a slope leading thousands of feet Into a deep valley below. Under the spell of the lengthening days and warm suns of February and March tbo drifts begin to loosen. Tiny rivulets trickle from beneath the white man tle, and suddenly, with a roar that Is never forgotten by those who have once heard It, the whole mass starts on Its Journey to the valley.
