In the recent municipal election In London very little interest was taken by women, although large num bers ol' them were entitled to vote for the coijnty councillor. It is re ported that not more than 22 percent of those entitled to vote cast their ballots. Dr. L. G. Powers, chief statistician of the census bureau, declares that the present census will show that the American people in the last 10 years have saved the astonishing sum of $25,000,000,000. The actual visible wealth of the country now amounts to $00,000,000,000. It is noteworthy that California, Connecticut and Alabama have had nearly the same percentage of growth in population during the past decade, although widely separated and hav ing in nothing in common. California increased 22.9 percent, Connecticut 21.1 and Alabama 20.8. The national bankruptcy law ought to prove popular with women, a case under its provisions having resulted in the decision that a woman can be "head of the house -under certain circumstances."

There is a good deal of sympathy wasted when we offer it to the poor Egyptians who are being robbed of their mummies. Of course we should be properly horrified to find our own cemeteries invaded and their bodies scattered in foreign countries, but be tween tho present representatives of the Egyptian race and their ancient progenitors whose . mummified re mains we dote on for our museums there is about as much actual kinship in sentiment and in fact as there is between Americans of the 19th cen tury and the cave bones,, of France or the petrified bodies of Swiss lake dwellers.

There's a beautiful golden cradle, That rocks in tne red-rose sky; I have seen it there in the evening air Where the baU and beetle* fly; With little white clouds for curtains, And pillows of fleecy wool, And a dear little bed for the Moon-Baby's head, So tiny and beautiful. There are tender young stars around it, That wait for their bath of dew In the purple tints that the sun's warm prints Have left on the mountain blue; There are good little gentle planets, That want to be nursed and kissed, And laid to sleep in the ocean deep, Under silvery folds of mist. But the Moon-Baby first nuist slumber, For he is their proud young king; So, hand in hand, round his bed they stand. And lullubly-i low thev sing.

Looking back —it is j a long way to look—l am ready to 'admit that there were many objections jto such it match. To begin with, I was I somewhat young to think of matri mony, insomuch that I had only reached tin" age of fifteen, while Mollie j was six or seven years my senior. J Again, I was not In a position to sup- I port n wife, and, as I see now, my af | feetions were inspired rather by Mol [ lie's excellent cheesecakes and succu- I lent jam-rolls—which invariably made ] me siglt for half a dozen appetites than by her buxom figure and npple ' like cheeks. J When I informed my "chum" But t ters, of my resolve, he looked at tne ! queerly, thrust his hands in his pock ets, and said. "Oh, Lor'!" "I mean it," I said. | "Well, I always thought you were a I hit sweet on her, ever since you broke | your arm and she used to give you | cream and stuff. She's a jolly girl, is Mollie. I wouldn't mind marrying iter ' myself." J "You'll he my best man, then?" I J asked. j "Certainly, but look here, old chap, j have you thought seriously about this?" and he hooked his arm through ' mine and drew me aside. | "Seriously?" ! "Yes; have you though what a heap of things people want who get mar ried?" 1 "What sort of things?" 1 "Oh, chairs and tallies and—and fry- I ing pans. Where do you expect to get I 'em from? They cost an awful lot." | I was silent. To tell the truth I had not considered the practical side of the question. j My affection was above all sordid do tails. | "There's a house, too," Butters pur sued. "Where are you going to live?" "Oh!—er—we shall go on as we are for a bit." j Butters stared. ! "You mean, Mollio'll stop at the doe tor's, and you'll go on having lessons?" "Yes." | "Oh! but that's 'rot,' you know. Wc can't have a married man in the school. The doctor won't stand It." j "He'll never know, fat head. It's go ; lng to be a secret marriage." j "Oh, crickey! At the registry office?" \ I nodded. j "I wonder how much It costs. I ■ shall have to ask." [ "You'd better ask Mollie first," But ters returned. "She may object to a secret marriage. There'll he no calling her name out before the congregation or cake or presents. I say, old chap, fancy a wedding without cake or pres ents. Why, people gets heaps of nobby , things when they're married. Silver I cigarette eases and walking sticks." ! I kicked the gravel ruefully, j "It enn't be helped," I answered re gretfully. "After all, it'll be more ro | mantic." I "Why, yes; there is that about it. j You might elope with her, you know, j Get her through the window, and have j a rope ladder nud a eoaeh anil four waiting in the lane. Only she's rather a lump to pull through a window. I say, what a lark it would he If she stuck and the doctor nabbed you. My! what a wopping you'd get." I am afraid I betrayed some symp toms of uneasiness here. Butters had a nasty habit of looking on the black side of things. But his words did not dampen my passion. I loved Mollie— I felt certain on this point. Yes, I loved her, though it would have taken mo all my time to encircle her waist with both arms. There was a pause. "You'll tell me how you do It?" But ters said. "How I do what?" "Why, propose, you know." "Oh—er—yes." ".Shall you kiss her?" "Shall I?" "They generally do, only you'll have to stand on a stool to do it, for she's a good head taller than you, and mind, when you propose you'll have to go down 011 your knees." "On my knees?" "It's tlie proper tiling, I know, .be cause I saw young Evergreen propose to my sister Flo. She refused him, though. By-the-by, you'll want n ring. I'll give you that one I got out of the prize packet foryour white rat." "Let's have a look at It" lie pulled it out. It looked very good, and in a few minutes I had part ed with my white rat and the ring was transferred to my waistcoat pocket. "When shall you see her?" he asked, as the bell rang. "Perhaps to-morrow." "I wouldn't put on my best pants If I wore you. It makes an awful mess of 'em kneeling does." That evening I had a quiet stroll in the doator's grounds to think matters over. While I was thus engaged James, ties gardener, came along with the watering can. As a rule, we fel lows were seldom on good terms with James, for lie always suspected us of having designs on his fruit, but this evening be was quite pleasant and asked me If I'd like a pear to come with him. Of course I did, for James's pears are just prime. It was a real Juicy one lie picked, and It melted in my mouth like butter. "Good—ain't it. Master Carraway?" he said. I nodded. My mouth was too full to speak. "Now I wonder if I might be so bold as to ask you to do me a favor, Master Carraway," he went on, eyeing me a bit doubtfully. "Why, of course, you may, James, I'll do anything for yon I can." "Thank you, sir; thank you kindly. I; ain't mueli—only just to give this letter to Mollie, the cook. You see, Master Carraway, I don't like golu' to the house over-often, for the other servants they plague Molilc about It, an' she don't like It; so if you'd kindly give it to her you'd be doiu' me a great favor." "Oil, I'll give it to her right enough." "Tliank you, sir. It's—it's rather im portant." Then James stopped, went red and smiled foolishly. "Important, is it?" "Yes, sir. I know you're a sensible young gent, Master Carraway. I've often said so to Mollie, so 1 don't mind telling you that It's about gettiu' mar ried." "About " "Yes, sir. I've been thinking of It for some time, an' now the doctor's give me a rise, an' I've got Joe Barnes' cottage, I don't see any reason why we should wait any longer. It's most as cheap to keep two as one. Master Carraway, an' she's a capital manager. I don't see as 'ow I can do better." "Who is she. .Tames?" I asked, not, it must be confessed, without a touch of misgiving. 110 looked at me in surprise. "Who? Why. Mollie." "You're—you're going to marry her?" "Yes, sir. The bfinns'll be put up on Sunday, and I've bought the ring. A guinea I give for it. But 'av another pear, Master Carraway." But I liad no heart for pears at that moment, and I made my way hack to the house, scarcely heeding James's reminder about the letter. Perhaps I had some thought of de stroying that missive, hut then I tc tlccted that such an net would do no good. Everything was practically set tled. Mollie was lost to me forever. I told Butters, and asked him to take back the ring, as I had no furth er use for It, but he refused to do tills, and we fought it out at the end of the cricket ground behind the trees. I got n black eye and also fifty linos for lighting. Mollie did her best to con sole me by giving me some of her best cheesecakes. If I could always bo sure of such cheesecakes I wouldn't mind Impositions every day—l would not mind losing Mollie herself.—Wav erley Magazine. Apology.

THE LUNCH CAE GCES POLICE ORDER NOMAD RES TAURANTS TO MOVE ON. As a Feature of Night I.Tfe In the Western Metropolis Tliey Fed the Hungry and Made ft P.easaut Sight— Story of Change. Q The story of the decline and fall of the lunch wagon is a story of city life and changes, says the Chicago News. No one seetns able to recall just when the sandwich ear first sprang into ex istence with its array of good things looming up in tempting neatness at the street coiner, its white-aproned proprietor, its bright lights and tiny cooking apparatus, and, above all, the inviting aroma that gradually grew to be associated with the lunch car. From an humble start it :rew t;> a recognized institution, in some cas*.. outfits have been built that represent ed comparatively large investments. The lunch car was primarily a crea ture of darkness. During the day it was concealed from sight, hut when the shades of night fell it was care fully drawn by horses to the spot where it was destined to radiate good cheer. Ther, safely anchored, it did a land office business in pleasant weather or foul, a haven of refuge to the hungry and weary nighthawk. Every class and every grade became at once patrons of the lunch car to a greater or less degree. The rounder "doing the town in a fine equipage drew up alongside to take solid re freshment. The belated person going home waiting for a night ear at a lonely corner' forgot his discomfort in munching at an egg sandwich well primed with thin slices of pickle, while good natured pleasure seekers return ing from the bail laughed immoderate ly over the fun derived from wrestling with its hot, palate-tickling products. What was sold at the lunch car was clean and pure—therefore its popular ity. It was* cooked before the very | Life-Saving Number of Lives and Value || <£} _ .o v _ . _ . _ of Property Javod During WGTVIC© VrP o the Year. The annual report of the lire-saving service, made public during the week, shews that at the close of the fiscal year the establishment embraced 269 stations, 191 being on the Atlantic, 58 on the lakes, 16 on the Pacific and 1 at the falls of the Ohio, at Louisville, Ky. The number of disasters to docu mented vessels within the field of operations of the service during the year was 381. There were on board these vessels 2,655 persons, of whom 2,607 were saved and 48 lost. Six hun dred and seventy-three shipwrecked persons received succor at the stations, to whom 1,447 days' r iief in the ag gregate was afforded. The estimated value of the vessels involved in dis aster was $6,127,500, and that of their cargoes $3,342,090, making a total value of property imperiled $9,170,190. Of this amount $7,264,690 was saved and $2,235,500 lost. The number of ves sels totally lost was 61. In add'lion to ihe foregoing there were during the year 329 casualties to small craft, such THAT SWEET TOOTH. It Is iot the Possesion of I'emln'nlly Alone. The sweet tooth is presumably sup posed to be strictly a feminine pos session. All of masculinity's 3_— If the dentist has left him oo many—are, according to the ideas of the general public, dedicated to beef and such sub stantials. One person who has no such illusions on this subject is the maid to whom a stalwart specimen e mas culinity brings a box of candy, which he gravely helps her to devour (the candy, not the box) at the rate of two pieces to her one. There are a few other people who can spc k with au thority of the fondness of the lords of creation for sweets, and these are the shopkeepers and the waiters in res taurants. Only this morning a tail, broad-shorldered, virile son of Adam was seen standing in front of a shop that makes a specialty of fancy cakes and tarts and open-work pies, such as women and children love, lie was probably on his way to his utilce, for he didn't go inside at all; he simply gazed with delight and heaved a sigh as he forced himself away, saya the Baltimore News. This evening, no doubt, he'll go back there on his way home and buy almond cakes and ec lairs galore. He'll tell the saleswoman they're for his little nieces, but they won't be at all. They'll be for him self and such of his bachelor friends as happen to drop in his den. Life Is not all beer ml beefsteak to the ath letic youth; cream puffs and kossuth cakes enter into it, though he would scorn to confess f'ris awful truth for fear of being emed effeminate. Housekeepers te: .y that the men in their fumilies who refuse dessert are few and far between and the mascu lines like sweet dishes, not too much of the evanescent order. Delicute trifles and russes, that melt in the mouth, are not as great favorites as a substantial, plump, hot mince pie, with A mound of Ice cream "on the side," to use a professional term. But whatever it is the sweet course is nev er despised. One of the affecting sights of the summer was to witness great athletic-looking men, who are more used to something and soda than any other drink, sitting beside fragile girls and plowing their way meekly through a mass of ice cream chocolate and soda with a long-handled spoon. It was quite as if the lion had taken eyes of the purchase? end was served in a style that left no room for petty distinctions such as are sometimes ex perienced in a cafe or restaurant. It mattered not to the man in charge whetner his patron was attired in the latest style or in tatters, whether tip sy or sober, respectable or an outcast, the service was the same to i.'.l who thrust the price through the little aperture where he presided over his gasoline fires. And so the lunch van became popular with all—that is, all except restaurant proprietors. The latter saw hundreds and thousands of persons being fed whose patronage might otherwise be theirs. Some went into the business themselves, others protested. These who chose the latter course maintained that they had a right to be heard against men who paid no rent, but rather usurped the people's rights to the streets and who tcok business from established res taurant keepers, whose places in many instances had formed landmarks for i _ rs. The restaurant keepers were joined by saloonkeepers with counter attachments to their bars. Other business men with grievances of other varieties were enlisted to raise their voice against the sandwich car. There were too many in the opposition to be ignored, and one day an order came forth from police headquarters to make the lunch venders "move on." It brought forth a storm of counter pretest, but the opposition had won. the day. The lunch-car owners wera violi ting the law every time they set tled down upon a corner and they found their day had come. Some se cured sites inside the building dismantled their cars from their wheels and settled down as permanent business men instead of nomads. Others put their outfits in storage and quit the business, while some few pos sessing political pull continued to ad here to the old line by changing the base of operations from time to time. But the lunch car as a thriving insti tution has ceased to exist on its old lines and the nocturnal hours have lost one of their most picturesque fea tures. as small yachts, sailboats, rowboats, etc., on board of which there were 781 persons, 776 of whom were saved and. five lost. The property involved in these instances is estimated at $260,070. of which $256,770 was saved and $lO,- 300 lost. Besides the number of per sons saved from vessels of all kinds there were 591 others rescued who had fallen from wharves, piers and other positions of extreme peril, many of whom would have perished without the aid of the life-saving crow. Five hundred and fourteen of these were rescued from dwelling houses, out buildings and other elevated places submerged wholly or in part by the terrible flood of the Brazos river in Texas July 6 to 12, 1899.

Viva la P.cine. It was hut yesterday that a justice of the S'.i sine Court of the United States said he had looked upon to bacco and found it good. It was but the other day that Lord Roberts,mind ful of the <i "n's chocolate on Christ inas day, gave the timely hint that to bacco is more profitable for a soldier's use than sweetmeats. It was hut last week that the Lancet, the great Lon don Medical authority, pronounced to bacco as a thing which would do the men good and not evil during the days In the field.
