"BOTTLED UP" BY THE ISORTHERIS PACIFIC The effective manner in which the Northern Pacific has 'bottled up Tacoma, bo far a* railroad tran*i>ort<ition i« concerned, i- strikingly shown liv the freight traffic arrangement* whkh the Great Northern has to make in order to get goods out of this city, or into it. The Great Northern cannot ship one pound of freight over the Mill of the Northern Pacific between Tacoma and .Seattle, no m to connect with Great North crn rail*. Only by u«ing sleitmbcmtN ,■.,.,,, the two cities can it handle such freight ax is offered. The Tacoma Times lias made a thorough investigation of this matter. It find* that freight coming from the Ka*t over (In' Great Northern is unloaded at Smith's Cove and transhipped In steamboat to Tacoma, ut considerable extra expense to the railroad. Again, when freight in offered the Great Northern at TaCOtna, for shipment east to any point on its line, thin freight has to be hauled down to the wharf and loaded into a steamboat for conveyance to Seattle, where it in again handled at con siderable expense and placed al>owd Great Northern cars. Many kindu of froi«ht. a liicli will not *tnnd thi, handling, lanimi lie accepted b] the • •■■■ ii N"itli( in. fOnly each kind,- m are well bond nnd proof against frequent handling, like nncd goods, cased mcrchandi»e and tin like, an in the limited list of article* which can be advantageously hauled by the Great Northern, lining steamboat as sistance to ,111.1 from Seattle. As ,1 matter of course the Great Northern must make a- low rates as the K. I' in order to get any trade at .ill. Hence it follows that the railroad must pa) the steamboat* for their assistance out of its freight receipts, thug reducing net profit*. Bouu mil ni once Mk, "Whj did nol Mr; Hill, under the reccnl 'men nt brine ii tin' <:rc«i Northern and the N. 1., when b< Mid to Ik> |ir«i lii alh m control oj both road», compel the Northern Pacific to allow the <ii< iii Northern Freight to pui or« the N, P. tncki between Tacomn and Seattle?" Probably he would bam done so, under ordinary condition*. It happened, how ever, that n great many citizens and m me aggressive state officials were up in arms ngainrt .the "merger"- .-• > i • t were neck ing to prove that it was an arrangement to destroy comjictition between two transcontinental roads. It was Hill's policy not to give them one bit of evidence on which to hang i"" creding* ttgainst hint in the courts. ," He could not, therefore, afford to change the status of freight traffic in any way, What better evidence would Governor Me Bride have wanted, for instance, that the two roads were being operated together under the "merger" than for Mr, Hill to have directed ii.<- Northern I'acific to let the Great Northern use it- tracks into Taeoma? . . Hill alwaya claimed thai the ' net tr" wu not horn of a acheeM to make tin i«.i roMh uperate in uatam. Benoe be could nol conaiatently bave interfered in the •lightest degree with tr.itln arrangement* oi the two roada without at once thro* I ii (.|«-n to attack. j There was ■ time in Tacome when the people would have fought for the in terest* of tin Northern Pacific, with almost as much enthusiasm as they would Lave fought for their country. That was when the N. P. was doing all that it could possibly do for the town, and for itself. r the Northern Pacific long linct went over to Seattle and announced, through J'k deni M'■l'm, thai henceforth th<- traffii ol Seattle will be .i> eagerly -im^ the traffic of TaiieHWi Tixlay the N. I' makes S,.attic nun hauls inch H"o,| rate that tbej ,ii. able to competa at an advantage in territory formerly claimed ex dugivetj ii.i Tacoma merchanti. So loyalty to the Northern Pacific in sentiment wasted. It is no moil! the friend of Tacoma than tiny other railroad. And lastly, now that the "merger" has been destroyed by* the courts and the Btyck.s uldcied iCiii:*U lbuletlj 1J JJI ului hi.s jjjtiuiia die said li^ ha\'c bcMcd I lit 1 mm.hi and to have eecurod a controlling interest in the N. P. as a.< saturate property. li this is true, what advantage is it to Tacoma to fight the battles of the N. P. and at the same time oppose the Great Northern? k _ The large innjoritjr of citizens are beginning to ask this question and ask it ser iously, "■ . • ;...*. .: . ■■' ' As another string to Tueoma'a bow. there is the tnion PaeMc, which llarnnian i> Ulking ot' extending to this city. Lot there lie a rigorOtn movemt'iit to gn alter the I . I. The mort' ro;nl« the better, 'lacnma needl thcni all. If the Union Pacific woulil lniihl its own line to Taeoina iiiHtend of using lives ainaily built, 11 wimld be fnr brtler for the city, inasmuch B 4 stich ncu line would derelop v large territorj tnlmuiry to tins city. Eemember thii fact: That a new line an extension of the Union Pacific, would •trike this ci!> before il would reacli Siiltle. md would make this to«n ne.iri'i f> new tields of entel|uise to the Kouth. With tin' Great Northern and the Union Pacific m Tacoraa, Umn trould be a fair oliunep of also p'tiin^ the Canadian Phciflc to come down from Seattle. Tacoma ■would glow so large and proaperoui that the C. I*, would want to come. Tlie same would probably; be,true of the Burlington, in time. The future of Taeoina depemls altogether u|>"ii the uuniUer of transcontinental HUM which iht (HI secure. Other matters should be dropped and aver) effort concentrated upon attempts to get the various roads to come here. A MLLUONAIRE ISEWSBOY I'atrieU Farrellj died the other du\, a millionaire. He was not born with a gold spoon in his mouth. He started in life, not with more "opportttnitiw" than moat, but with none ut all. True, when lie landed iv tins country at the a-e .if seven, in the flight ot his parents tiom poveit) in Ireland, ht had a mouuJ muni, ll lie had any other tangi ble capital it waa co&cealed within him. The boy went to selling ni <w-a|iapem--at that day no lucrative business. ]?ut he learned the business, such us it was. and made it better. It is I poor buiinoei indeed that intelligence and energy cannot improve. At 23 he mt »idi scliinn HMan but hud ulmi taken on weekly periodicals and uiagu/iues and hud oUbliahad branch ptaoat). He knew liis bttaineel thoroughly. lie hud loaned hit intelligCßCC to others ami u.i- drawing interest OB it through jnauy profitable rivalete of trade. 'Hi* civil war came on and enormously stimulated the gale of publications. It also increased the difficulty of distributing them. Many a man in that business Quit, discouraged and defeated. Hut to young Furrelly, who had the right stuff in him. it was opportunity. K''.y With live other ineu he formed the American News Co. The shrewdness and energy that were his before created a wider field for successful business. Everybody today knows about the American Co., and there is no surprise oc casioned by the announcement that its founder made an immense fortune. Nor is there really any ground for surprise that a millionaire should have conic up from poverty. Most of them do. There is no "opportunity" iv all the w >rld lor the man who has not got the es sential quaiuu- within hiiii»elt'. To the man who has these qualities who has mastered hi« bu-ines-s. whatever it ia— the whole world i» one great Opportunity. Of course to be a millionaire is not to have the only, or the highest success. It is only one type and by no means the best. Hut, at the same time, the man who builds, up a great and useful business present* good illustration of the qualities that find success in any direction sought.

While in the larva or worm imm, their lung tissue, called the trachea. i- spread out along their sides just under the akin, and the little spots seen along the tide of .1 worm fire the breathing spores or Openings where the lung tissue comes near the surface. At these points there is only .1 thin la eel ike covering, enough to keep the dust out, and when a worm humps its bark up out of the mud it is simply to get a chance to breathe. A louse does not g.i through the lam state—it i- hatched a loute, right from the egg or "nit," but its breathing spores may be seen as little dark spots all around the edge of its back, ns shown in the cut. A view of their peculiar claw is also shown, but there are many variations of this form, for every rail 1 of man has a louse with a different style of foot, anil they tire all very persistent in following their own fashions. An expert microscop i--i could identify the clothing of a negro or an Indian if lice were found in it, as easily as by the microscopic examination of a hair or a drop of blood. The cure for this degrading pest is clean linens, but lice may be caught from close contact with others in crowds, or from dollies hung in miscellaneous wardrobe*. and reflect no discredit. White precipitate and sulphur ointment are effectual reined ies where anything more than a fine toothed comb is needed. MY CYNTHIA OREY.

Her dress was of champagne col,iied crepe de chine. The skirt was made "ith a panel of the goods straight down the front, and tiny crepe de chine covered buttons were set on the edge of the panel to correspond with the folds of the skirt, which ran quite round the other side of the panel. There were three rows of shir ring at the top of the skirt, just running tip to the panel. The bodice was made with a yoke and collar of hand work in lace and ribl>on and knots, the ribbon and dainty lace insertion were put together with fagoting in a scroll design. The yoke was outlined with white silk fringe. The slee\es were shirred just above the elbow mid again above the fall of laco ruffles, which finished the sleeves. Her hat was ol pale blue straw, with a great white plume and a fall of white lace. She wore gloves and shoes to match her gown. DELIGHTFULLY EMPLOYED. Mi>.« Pamela Coleman Smith, a London society woman, earned her admission Into the London smart set by telling strange Jumbi stories, which she learned in child hood during a visit to Jamaica, where it is I common practice to tell stories to the children as a reward for good conduct. Miss Smith's peculiar charm, and the ex traordinary costumes which she wears, and the strange little fingers which she manipu lates as actors of the story which she tells, have made her the rage in the English drawing room. She is well paid for the en tertainment which her remarkable talent and her early education afford. New Management, FUNERAL OF C. H. HOLMES Funeral v er the remain,- ol < aptain C. 11.
