Why a Certain New York Town Still Depend* Upon Candles and Lamps for LJflrlit. Towns are like individuals. They seldom get over early prejudices. There is one town within a day’s travel of New York where a majority of the residents still burn lamps and candles in preference to gas. The town has never run away with itself, but it has managed to keep in sight of the procession by jogging along at a conservative gait, except in the way of light. One of its in habitants who was here the other day explained what to some people is a peculiarity of his town, relates the New York Sun. “A good many years ago,” he said, “after a good deal of dickering and persuasion, our town gave the right of way to a gas company to lay mains and put up lamp-posts. The people, however, declined to have gas in their houses or in their places of business. Women were afraid of it, and that settled it. “A year or so later a denomination that had a number of rich members built anew church. It would have been an attractive edifice for even a more pretentious town. After it was completed a bishop was invited to dedicate it. “The gas company saw in the event an opportunity to crush out a prejudice, and proposed to light the new church on the night of the ded ication with gas. The main in the street was tapped and a pipe was run into a portable gas reservoir which stood in front of the church. From this rubber tubes were dis tributed through the church. “As the gas was turned into the reservoir it gradually expanded the rubber lining until the latter as sumed the proportions of an inflated balloon. A gas company would not do it that way now, but it was the only way known at the time I men tion. “The crowd was outside instead Of In. The gas display was a revelation to the town. About the only people in the church were the bishop, the minister, the choir and the gov ernors of the church. The choir sang all the music it knew, and still the congregation tarried without. “Some time after the hour when the service should have been under way there was an explosion. The lining of the reservoir burst. The crowd scattered. The lights in the church were extinguished. “A few minutes later the bishop and the minister and the choir and the governors escaped by windows and doors. The atmosphere that hangs over a glue factory was like new-mown hay compared with that of the vicinity of the pew church. “Of course, after the explosion had occurred every old woman in the towji said she knew it would. And they still believe it is liable to burst any minute, and that is why our town, moderately up to date in other respects, is still burning kero sene and candles in its houses. “Some of the more modern folks have ventured to try electric lighting, but there is one town in this country where no gas trust ever got in its work.” Woman Flrf-Brigaile. The town of Armidale, New South Wales, has a woman’s fire-brigade that has earned distinction in numerous en counters with the flames. A London magazine says that the brigade is well organized, and every member is trained to her duty. The tirewomen take a pride in their occupation, and for daring cannot be excelled. They are mostly young girls, athletic ami trained to climb and run. A dozen or more young women from the brigade, electing one of their number as cap more young women form the brigade, appliances, and are capable of render ing assistance to the male firemen when necessary. They are expert in rescue work with the life-line and with the jumping-sheet, as also the handling of the hose.—Youth’s Com panion. Green Pea Timbale for Soap.
