Progress Of The Modern Elevator In The
Present Day Sky Scraper,
Owing to the extreme height
of the new Wbolworth building
(60 stories or 750 feet,) it has
become necessary to install a new
type of elevators which will set
a new pace for swift running as
they -are the speediest in the
world. These elevators will run
at the rate of 700 feet per min
utea speed that will uncessiut
the passing of a special bWl
through tho New Yurk lesisln
ture. The rapid running time
of elevators is not merely a case
of American speed mauia. If
has been a matter of necessitp.
The modern American elevator
made possible the American rky
scraper. . . .
Twenty. Ave years ago when
only hydraulic elevator, were iu
use, operated usually by the
cumbersome hand cable process
150 feet per minute was the
maximum speed, audubt always
in safety. It the Wool worth
building were to be equipped
with the old style elevator it
would require more than 10 min
utes for the trip up and dowu,
without a single stop, and allow
ing for stops more than (i half
hour woule be consumed Vi)' rank
ing the trip.

Would Mean a Saving of $70.'
000,000. to ithe People
That the adoption of a one cent
letter postage rate will mean a large
increase in tho amount of letter
mail carrlod by the Government Is
the belief of prominent business
men who have made n study of
American postal problem.
It le thought by many expertB In
poBtal matters that the creation of a
ono cent letter rato by congress at
its cotmning session would mean bo
much additional business that th.
extra revenue derived woulu eanlly
care for tho expensed of the depart
ment under tne lower rate.
One of tho stronrt;o6t believers in
the one cent letter propaganda Is
John VVanamaker, former Postmas
ter general and noted merchant
wIiobb mammoth stores iu Philadel
phia ,aud New York are known to
millions of Americans who have
viBited them. Mr. 'Wauamaker is
of the belief that a one cent letter
postage rate should be Inaugurated
at once.,
'I am a Arm believer In one cent
letter postage", declared Mr. Waua
maker, "aud think the government
would have a larger revenue from it
after the first two years than It has
at present from two cent postage
when people had time to realize the
facilities afforded for communica
tion with each other."
John Wanamaker is probably one
of the best vers9d men In America
on postal problems. He waB United
States postmaster general beginning
the year 1889 under Pres. BenJ. Har
rison and made a deep study of the
situation. This statement coming
from a mau of Buch mature judge
ment it hailed with considerable
satisfaction by the promoters of the
campaign for one cent letter post-Be.'-
That a definite demand for one'
cent letter postage will be made at
the coming session of congress Is
now evldeut. Thousands of busi
ness men throughout the country
are Joining th.e National One Cent
Letter Postage Association whioh
has its headquarters at Cleveland.
O., and which is cotiductiug a cam
paign for one cent letter rate. A
new bill providing for one cent
postage will be introduced ih con
gress early in the' 'session- and a
determined effect 1b to be' made to
secure Its passage, Hundreds of
commercial organizations, and other
bodies have indorsed the campaign
aud are working with the postage
association in the eifort to secure a
lower rate.
Under present conditions it is
claimed that first-class mull is pay
ing a surplus to tho government of
nearly $70,000,000 a year. Although
it requires t.wo cents to mail a let
ter anywhere in the United StateB,
it Ib estimated that It actually costs
tho government about ono cent to
curry jit. At" tbe present time the

Enjoyment of The Day's Pleas

(Howard J. Brazelten)
If "coming events oast their shad
ows before" so does the approach of
the Christmas season speak its mes
sage to humanity. In tbe rush and
hurry of our preparations; the jost
ling crowd that throng the streets
and siiopB In search of the appropri
ate gift or toy, let ub not be deaf to
that message,
'ctiildhoodla Claim.
It is significant that Christ was a
child. The babe ih the 1nangr has
become familiar to us in'enug, story
and art. Each Christmas season it
iB retold but loses none of its charm
because of having been repeated' for
two thousand years. In tbis fact is
a deeper significance than wo some
times fathom,, and a message' that
we too often fail to hear. Ever since
the birth of the Christ Child, child
hood has had for ub a newer and
sweeter meaning, ' ,
"There's a song in the air,
Thore's a star in tbe sky,
Thote's a Mother's deep prayer.
There's a baby's low ory,"
This cry of the babe Is a part of
the message of .Christmas. Qut ot
its helplessness, I tB' purity and its
bringing of joy, it crieB to uTT, claim
ing our support and sympathy, and
bur participation iti tho joyou3 sun

from assuming these until child
hoo.d'8 period is gone, these' are the
utterances, we distinguish in. the cry
of .the babe, and these have been
coming Into their owtf wherever the
influences represented by Christmas
have gone, The disregard for these
are clear evidence that the story of
Christ has beeu drowned in the
struggle of selfishness and low aim.
The crewded tenement with Ub
filth and squalor; the lazy drunken
parenthood that pushes children out
to bear burdens too heavy for child
ish aboulders; the employment of
these by phblJc corporations in
order to procure cheap labor and
satisfy their own insatiate greod; the
enticing and entrapping deus of vice
that draw in the children like a

result of a deaf ear turned to tho
ory ot the babe.
