If parents would keep the confidenre of their children and understand them, they must take an interest in their play. This doesw not mean that it is enough to watch them play. We must I get their viewpoint. understand what it means to them and, if possible, play with them sometimes. At one time there was no place in crowded crwded city life for children. Now the community has recognized that they have some rights and playgrounds with kindly su. pervisors are growing moreo and moreo numerous. The nation will be richer in years to come for thus providing for :he play life of its children. Use of Mechanical Milkers. The time saved Iy the use of the nmechanieul milker increases with the increase in the size of the herd. Thus with herds of 1c cows or less the av erage time required to miilk a cow by hand is a fraction over seven minutes; by machine a fractihn under five nuin utes. With herdy of more than 50 cows it takes slightly under seven minutes to milk a cow by hand and but 4:15 by machine.

One even:ng re-,ently I rode from i',,rty-setrond str.eet to Fifty-ninth a'roet without once touching the floor with my feet. Some of the New York street cars klad a doubre Ilfe. because they are used all winter to act the part of re frigerators. It is a cold day when we cannot tind it colder in the street cars. The germs in our street cars are ex tremely sociable and will follow a stranger all the way home. Often while riding in the New York street cars I have felt a germ rubbing against my ankle like a kitten. Being a gentleman. at least superficially, I did not reach down and kick it away, because the law says we must not be disrespectful to dumb brutes. Many of these street cars are built otn the same general plan as a can ,f condensed milk. WVhen you get out you cannot get in. ind when you get in you cannot get ,ut, because you hate to disturb the t-angc- gentleman that is using your knee to I-an over. Between the seats there is a space of two feet. but in that space you `1 I_;1 f1A ih -· I~ 'I·.

Under ordinary circumstances four n!to two won't go, but the Squeezer ars defy the laws of gravitation. A Squeezer conductor can put twen ty-six into nine, and still have four to carry. For a man with a small dining room the Squeezer car has its advantage, but when a stout man rides in them he finds himself supporting a lot of :trangers he never met before. One morning I jumped on one of those Squeezers feeling just like a :wo year old, full of health and hap piness. During the first seven blocks three men, fresh from a distillery, grew up in front of me and removed the scenery. One of them had to get out In a hurry, so he kicked me on the shins to show how sorry he was to leave me. One of the other two must have been in the distillery a long time, be cause pretty soon he neglected to use his memory and sat down in my lap. When I remonstrated with him, he replied that this is a free country, and if he wished to sit down I had no business to stop him. Then his friend pulled us apart, and I resumed the use of my lap. During the next twenty blocks I had one of the worst daylight night mares I ever rode behind. The party who had been studying the exhibits of the distillery became obsessed with the idea that my foot Worse and More of It. Will Tellun was furious. I1 dauhed into the edlit,rial sainctliu of the "'Chin W1aga r" over the prottr:,te formn of the office boy. and confronted the edi tor himself. "Look here'" he !,elloiw ed. "This paper said I was a liar.!" "Oh. no. it didi not t" replied the edlitor calmly. "It did. I say!" "I say 'No.'" "Well. soul.e paper said it ." splutteredl Tellum. "Possibly It was our con temporary down the street," said the editor sweetly, fingering a paper weight. "We never orint stale news!" was the loul edlal oIn a ttanti acit' he started to jilay the i '.u,'anube \\ altz,,s I th;tL an 1;rl ';i ui h a hard drinlk r that h! g v, .,L' t.i. git rst Iroi.l stan;t 'll K '.I r:i f ",t.

Last \tnllday I junpeild at an early. bird oiie:-fa:c e car aind! it SQ'niedi. i thii all the wrlil was tilled with joy and good wish's. I was sioking one of those ltad B.oy' cigars I call it a tad 1oy cigar IW.LausL as soon as it goes out it gets a"ful lnoisy. The ctar was enil.ty with the excep tion of a couplel' of henches. Two blocks farther on the car stroppt. and a stout lady looked over the sitlluation. I think shei must have been color blind, bec;Lase liho didn't see the emnpty seats and decided to cast her lot with me. It v. as a terrific moment. 'ohn.," I said to myself, "don't be a Ilg--move over'" And virtue triumphed. I moved over, and the stout lady settled sluashfully into the end seat. iHer displacement was about fifteen cents' worth of bench. After we had gone about ten blocks more every scat in the car in front and behind us was crowded. but no body could get in our section because the fat lady held them at bay like HIo rattus held the bridge in the brave days of old. People would rush up to the car when it stopped.halance carelessly fore and aft until their eyes rested on the vacant seats in our direction, and then they would see the stout lady sitting there, as gracefully as a concrete Sphinx. The people would look at the stout lady with no hope in their eyes, and then, with a sigh. they would retire and wait for the next car. No one was brave enough to climb. the mountain which grew up between him and the promised land. After a while I began to get a tooth ache in my conscience. "John," I said to myself in a hoarse whisper, "perhaps after all you were the Hog because you moved over. After the lady had climbed over you she would have kept on to the other end of the bench where now there is nothing but a sullen space." I began to insult myself. "John.' I exclaimed inwardly, "whgt do you know about the etiquette of the street car? According to the newspa pers it is only a Man who can be a Hfog on the street cars, and since you are the original cause of blockading the port when you moved over, you must be the Hog:" Then I got so mad at myself that I refused to talk to myself any fur ther. The next day I was riding downtown on the end seat with my mind made up to stay there and keep the harbor open for commerce. "Never," I said to myself, "never will anyone become a human Merri mac to bottle up the seating capacity of this particular bench while the blood flows through these veins and the flag of freedom waves above me." At the next corner a very thin little gentleman squeezed by me with a look of reproach on his face, the like of which I hope never to see again, but I was Charles J. Glue and firm in the end seat. Then a couple of Italy's sunny sons of the name of Microbeini and Germi cide crawled over me and kicked their initials on my kneecap and then sat down to enjoy a smoke of domes tic rope, which fell across my nostrils and remained there in bitterness. After I had been stepped on, sat on, clawed at and scowled at for Early Chinese Had Compass. As 'early as 2.;3L4 years beforte Christ the comp;lass was knl.Vn in a crude way to the Chinese and it was used by Ithem for ,urlposes If navigatior as early as the third century of the Chris ti,,n ra. But the policy of the rulers an(d the habits and character of the people cnaspired to render the Chinese intdi'Terent sailors, and the compass did not become of great importance to them as it did to the seafaring na tions of Europe. twenty minutes.

JI:t i th n thn Ii infecti brothers, Microbhini and G(;rmicidle, walked < . "Have the Conductor Come Around Every Ten Minutes for His Fare." over me and I had a short but excit ing visit to the slums. Since that eventful day I have moved over thirty-six times, and out of the thirty-six people I gave the end seat to all but three of them belonged to the Mucilage family, and stayed there. Therefore I made myself a severe promise not to worry any more about my Hog qualifications when movable or immovable on an openfaee car. I will do as my conscience dictates, and walk downtown as much as pos sible. And, speaking of street cars., I was in one of those cities recently where some of the cars stop on the near side of some of the streets and some stop on the far side of some of the streets. Honestly. they had me in the air. I left the hotel to attend to some business downtown and went over to the near side of the street to wait for a car. When the car came along I held my thumb up in the atmosphere warn ingly, but the motorman kept on to the far side and stopped. By the time I ran over to the far side he was gone again, and another car had stopped at the near side. When I rushed back to the near side the car passed me going to the far side, and now the near side looked so much like the far side that I went back to the other side, which should have been the near side, but how could it be the near side when the car was on the far side. and I could not get near the side in time to catch the car before it was far away on the fari sido? Just as I rushed back again to the far side the near side became the nearer side to catch the car. and when I rushed over again from the far side to the near side the nearer I got to the near side the clearer I could see that while the far side was far away it was nearer than the near side. which was always on the far side when I hoped to take a car on the near side. Then I began to grit my teeth and made up my mind to anticipate the ac tion of the next car by standing half way between the near side and the far side, so that I could run to either side the emergency called for. I was standing there about a mn- ute, much pleased with the Idea. be. cause the near side was about as far away as the far side, when Just then an automobile sneaked up behind me and one of the forward turrets struck me on my personal far side: and hoisted me over to the near side; just as a car left for the far side. I reached out my hand to grasp the far side step, but I missed it and caught the near side. and by this time the car was on the far aide and the motorman grabbed the near side of the electric controller and pushed it over to the far side, whereupon the car started for El Paso. Tex.. at a speed of about 3,000 miles a minute, and there I was with the near side of four fingers holding on to the far side of the step and the rest of my body sticking straight out in space like a pair of trousers on a clothesi Iine in a gale of wind. Then suddenly the near side of my flngers refused to hold on to the far side of the step, and with the near side of my face I struck the far side of the tracks, and the near side of my brain saw every individual star on the far aide of the Universe. Then I went back to the hotel and crawled into the far side of the bed while friend wife sent for a near-side doctor who lived on the far side of the block. Late Marriages.
