What Others Wanted Five For.
Employers and members of trades
unions inEuglarid alike are marveling
OTer thfe accomplishment of the West
inghowe Electric company in erect
i)i( rest works at Manchester. Build
ings Which cost $7,000,000 have been
cAnstructed in less than a year, Eng
lish builders estimated that thiswork
would require five years. The work
has b«ea done by British workmen un

with 2,50(fon the plain"work-.
Ci'Stewwt, of St. T.ouis, acted as
manager: Gncday Mr. Stewart had SO
policemen on hand in ense of emerg
ency? The next day found him pre
senting the foreman with a ten-guinea
snit of clothes for his expeditious
The manager's representative said
that Mr. Stewart had started,in by
initiating a system of daily r?ports of
the progress from each of the 75 fore
men or subforemen.
The first two weeks showed no par
ticular record except that a great deal
too much money was spe»t for the
work done. This representative said:
"After that we got to 900 bricks for a
man anil by a continuous progress of
elimination, guided by the daily re
ports of progress, we reached an aver
age of 1,800.
"Yen, trouble was threatened by
trade unions at times, but we met the
delegates and defined our position
plainly. We were willing to work with
union men, and according to union
rules, and we gave 11 pence per hour,
instead of ten penc«, which is the rate
stipulated by the union.
"We made it as clear as spring water,
kowever, that we were going to have
those bricks laid, thaf we intended to
be masters of our own work, that we
were going to let the slowest man on
a job set the jtace. thnt each man would
have to d« his: utmost, and that we
thoald have.men to see that this idea
was carried out.
Kither we were to
run the job or .the unions would be dis
regarded. and- other men employed."
P»»f. Kraaae, of Germany, Saya That

erating Phjralcallr.
Prof. Krause, an eminent German
authority, has come to the conclusion
that, Respite the general fears, the
human race is not degenerating physi
cally. The professor says that the
Egyptian mummies, afti allowing for
all possible shrinkage* were no largtr
ia body when alive ihan are the pres
ent dwellers on the banks of the Nile.
Ancient Roman writers give the
height of the soldiers of the pretorian
guard as 67 inches. Xo Kuropeanna
Hon with a guard would think of so
kw a standard. Skeletons of 1he an
cient Germanic tribes found in the
valley of the l(hine bear witness to
the conclusion that the old Germans
were much beneath the present gen
eration in stature.
Dr. Krause bases his view chiefly on
the irrefutable evidence of the re
cruiting statistics of all European
countries. These show that even in
Vran_eei since 1S15, the.re has been a
growing improvement in the physical
capacity of the recruits.
"School going, coddling and other
refinements of, civilization-," says Dr.
*Krans*. "may have an injurious effect
o« the modern human fiber, but this is
more than counterbalanced by the im
plored and better cooking."

''-,B'lled at Conrt Honse.
With the old year common-law
marriages in New York state censed,
ami a new law' recognizing marriage
by civil contract has taken effect.
By the signing of a written agree
ment in the presence of two wit
nesses, acknowledpng it before a
notary and filing.the paper with the
county clerk, a man and woman may
legally wed in New York state.
In abolishing the old law, its abuse
by designing persons has been done
away with, and the services of cler
gymen, justices of the peace and iil
dermen are made no longer neces
sary to tie the marriage knot. Law
yers who have given the new law at
tention say that it will require fur
ther amendment to prevent ots being
used to the injury of one or the oth
er of the contracting parties by a
failure to make it a matter of rec
Assemblyman John A. Weekes,
Jr., introduced the bill in the legis
lature last February. It. passed both
houses in April and received the gov
ernor's signature.
It is the last clause in the law that
has aroused criticism. both par
ties contract a marriage, but neglect
to record it. within six months
through carelessness of the intent
of the husband or wife, the marriage
is iiivalid.
It is pointed out that a husband
may wilfully deceive a wife about re
cording the certificate and after the
interval has passed mny desert her.
It is suggested nlso that t.he law pro
vides an inconsistency by recogniz
ing a man and a woman as husband
and wife for five months and 29 or
30 (lays, and then, if no certificate is
filed, declaring their marriage ille
In advocacy of the bill Assembly
man Weekes pointed to many cases
in the courts in which designing
women had posed as widows and
claimed estates of men deceased.
The new law recognizes all marriages
solemnized by clergymen, and no de
crease in the number of church wed
dings is expected.
The Nfw Code of Law for the District
of Colambla Goes Into
Iadical change in the matter of di
vorce proceedings is a feature of the
new code of laws for the District of
Columbia, which was passed at the
last session of congress and went
into effect the first of the year. The
n$w law prohibits the granting of di
vorce except for infidelity, divorces
nq, longer being procurable for de
sertion, drunkenness, cruelty and
other offenses formerly recognized as
valid ground for legal separation.
There if a considerable change also
in the practice before justices of the
peace, the city being divided into ten
districts, with one salaried justice in
each district, in place of the former
feed officers, whose locations were
not to any considerable extent gov
erned by geographical distinctions.
The code is not a complete body of
laws for the government of the Dis
trict, the old Maryland statutes, the
common law and the statutes of the
United States applicable to the Dis
trict and acts of congress relating
to the District remaining in force ex
cept where inconsistent with the new
body of laws.
Britain Expects Fertile Acres of the
Dominion Will Solve Qaestlon
of British Food Snpplr.
Canada is being congratulated on
the progress exhibited last year,
says the London correspondent of
the New York Tribune. The fact that
public deposits in Canadian banks
amount to' $400,000,000 is considered
.remarkable, and the Morning Post
looks to the time when the fertile
acres of the dominion will, solve the
whole question of the British food
supply, which isitlie nightmare of so
many zealous politicians in England.
"Here, surely," .«ays the Post, "is
room for British capital and energy
to solve a problem not merely of the
'greatest importance to the internal
development of the dominion, but
also to the welfare of the empire.
As a whole, its solution would be fa*
cilitated ly the conspicuous loyalty
of Canada, whereof so many ex
amples have recently been afforded."

Six 3_earsago Mr. Hewitt camf tothe
conclusion that a better and clienper
light than'that supplied by either the
arc or incandescent lamps could be ob
tained by the use of a gas as the con
ductor instead of the film used in the
incandescent lamps. He began to ex
periment, with the result that he has
obtained such a light, and, except for
the perfection of a few details, is ready
to put it on the market.
Mr. Hewitt's lamp consists simply
af a glass tube, with a bulb at one end,
into which he introduces the gas gen
erated from mercury. The tubes,
when filled, are connected with the or
dinary electric power in any building
and the current turned on. The gas
acts as the conductor, and as soon as
the switch is turned the tube is flood
ed with light.
Mr. Hewitt says he can produce his
light at one-eighth the cost of the in
candescent lamps and one-third the
cost of arc lamps and of gas lamps.

Wins Waylnto Hearts of
irto Rican Children, ..,
Visit of Three Wise Men, Which Has
for Generations Been Made on
January 0, Must Give Way to"
ife Saint uiul His Cliristiuns Tree.
fiM' _____
Many of the children of Porto Rico
were treated to a Christmas tree this
season for the first time iiv their lives.
Christmas day and the visits of Santa
Chuis are not observed in Porto Rico
as in northern countries. In fact, until
this season Santa Claus was unknown
to the Porto llican youth. The real
Christmas comes 12 days later in Porto
Rico, that is as far as the exchanging
of gifts and remembrances is con
cerned. January 0 is Three Kings day,
and the three kings take the place of
Santa Claus there. Instead of having
a Christmas tree, or of hanging their
stockings in the fireplace, the young
sters there on the eve of January 0
put a box filled with grass and their
shoes out on the balconies or on win
dow-sills. The three wise men who
are traveling through the country pro
claiming the birth of the infant ChKst
stop at each box, and, if the little boy
or girl is good, the three mules which
the wise men are riding eat the grass
and leave a toy or a bit of "Dulse."
But. if the youngster has been bad
during the year, the box is left, un
touched and the wise men depart, leav
ing nothing. To fill these little boxes
children of all ages are at work for a
week, and nearly every blade of grass
in the little parks is pulled.
In the schools, on the last school
day before Christmas, the teachers
told the story of Santa Claus, and in
some of the Schools Santa Claus ap
peared in person,' much to the delight
aiul astonishment of the children, who
had never before imagined such
thing. Christmas trees, imported
from the United States, especially for
the occasion, with tinsel and lighted
candlcs and laden with candy and
cakes, were a revelation to the chil
Within a few years it is safe to pre
dict Three Kings day will be for
gotten, and the pretty little tradition
will be a thing of the past. The Amer
icanization of the island extends to the
folk-lore of the people.

Cnlifni'iiiun Claims to Rnve Invented
a Most Powcrfnl Engine of
D. Pcttingill, of Oakland, Cal., has
invented a glycerine projectile,
which, ifitlie claims of the inventor
hold good, will prove of great impor

negotiating with the United States
government for the sale of the de
vice. The matter will be considered
by the ordnance department immedi

is a shell that will carry without the
least concussion from 50 to 200
pounds of glycerine oil as far as the
ordinary shell'can be carried by tlia
ordinary modern ordnance. The

Are Preparing to Invade the Gngllah
§£i| Market wUh Vhtir Artls^p.
si? tie Wares. v'-A
American manufacturers of silver
ware are preparing to invade the Eng
lish markets. The originality and ar
tistic finish of the American product
lias been recognized in the British Isles*
as STsewhere, but without the English
hall mark as a guarantee of the purity
of- the silver it was impossible to make
any headway. One difficulty.^in the
way was that the hall mark could not
be affixed after the goods Were fin
ished, as the tests for purity would
disfigure them.
To obviate this the manufacturers
made arrangements to ship the silver
ware to England in'a partly finished
condition, have the hall mark affixed
and sent back to the United States for
the final stages of manufacture, after
which it is to be shipped to England
for sale.
Inquiry mas made at the treasury
department whether or not duty
would be assessed on the goods when
brought back from England and the
department liaa ruled that no duty
will be levied, as the silverware would
not be considered as having been ad
vanced in manufacture within the
meaning of the law by the affixing of
the hall mark.
