Aged Man Accepts Charity and Loses
New York.—James A. Farvln, assist
ant station master at the Pennsylvania
station, has lost his faith in human na
ture. He helped a supposedly starving
man and then found him possessed of
thousands of dollars.
The man was evidently exhausted
and about to collapse.
"I've not had a bite to eat in two
days," he murmured.
Having helped the old man to a seat
Mr. Farvin rushed a porter away for
hot coffee and sandwiches. The old
man ate ravenously and wept as be
told his story.
The old man said his name ivas Uriah
Lane and on foot he had dragged him

him the change from a five dollar bill.
Just afterward Mr. Farvin caught
sight of a wallet lying under the chair
on which the aged man had sat. Open
ing it, he found the name Uriah Lane
on the flap. Inside were eight $1,000
bills, crisp and clean twenty $100 and
ten $5 bills—$10,050 in all.
When Mr. Farvin overtook the old
man he demanded to be repaid for the
sum already advanced. After much ar

THE WbEKLY TIMES-RECORD, THURSDAY, AFRIL 9, 1914.
HEAVY SNOWS TO
BRING BIG CROPS
Soil In Fine Shape as Result
of White Blankets.
Washington.—For a number of years
the country at large has not enjoyed
such general snow? as whitened the
countryside during February and
March of the present year. Also It
has been the occasional catastrophe
that one great heavy snow has fallen
late in the season to be followed by a
quick thaw and consequent floods.
Now the soil sharps, seeing vhat condi
tions are more nearly ideal this sea
son than for a number of springs, are
encouraged to believe that 1914 is des
tined to be a year of bumper crops.
Dr. J. A. Bonesteel of the bureau
of soils is quoted:
"Since the snow blanket took its
time in departing we will have a bet
ter crop start this year than for sev
eral years. To date conditions could
be hardly more ideal. We had snow
after snow—not too heavy, but per
sistent enough to keep the ground cov
ered well and the tender shoots of the
wheat in perfect condition.
"This is particularly true of the east
ern states generally, but at the same
time conditions are far better in the
middle west than is the general aver
"In the corn belt, where there was
a considerable depletion of the crop
through too persistent drought last
season, the snow will prove of incal
culable benefit. The corn belt ought
to have a splendid start.
"Where snow remained a long time
and there has been extensive oppor
tunity for it to seep down Into the
earth, carrying its moisture from one
to two feet, the soil-is prepared to de
velop sturdy roots for the cereal crops.
The plants therefore stand a better
chance against possible deficiencies in
the matter of rainfall during the period
of tWa growth."
BE A SPINSTER AND
LIVE LONG, HE SAYS
Life Insurance Man 6ives Sta
tistics on Death Rate, ,«
New York.—The spinster lives longer
than the married woman.
The business woman lives longer
than the business man.
The woman who takes out an endow
ment insurance policy lives longer
than the woman who takes out a
straight life policy.
These facts—and Arthur Hunter, ac
tuary of a leading company, said they
were facts—were gathered last year by
experts in the employ of the forty
three leading companies in this coun
Mr. Hunter didn't explain why the
unmarried woman survives the matron
nor why the business woman outlives
the business mail, but he revealed why
the woman who takes unto herself an
endowment policy lasts longer than the
woman who has to die to win.
"The endowment womau just gets
up her spirit and determines to live
until the policy matures," he said. ''The
other woman sighs, 'Oh. what's the
use?' and shuffles off."'
Mr. Hunter said there were more
fatal accidents in this country than
elsewhere because of the American
"I'll take a chance" spirit. The Amer
ican, he said, takes all sorts of risks to
save time and inconvenience. The for
eigner doesn't do that at home, but
when he comes here he becomes in
"The mortality rate among engineers
and firemen is eight times that of men
in other callings," be said, and among
policemen about 40 per cent higher.
With policemen it is on the Increase."
Mr. Hunter said that the business
woman kept herself going by a deter
mination to fight it out. She had some
thing tangible, something to live for.

work as a matter of course and is apa

Accordingly the dutiful son offered him

There was no reason why he should

RUSSIA A DANCING NATION.
And Red Is the All Pervading Color of
the Real Native.
"Red is the obsessing color of the
real Russian. His word for beautiful
is 'preskrasnee,'" says a writer,
which means literally 'very red.' A
peasant girl in gnla dress Is red from
the scarf on her head to her bright red
boots, often relieved only by the white
blouse, on which again is red embroid
ery. The snow white steps of state in
the Kremlin are called the 'red stairs'
as a tribute to their beauty and with
no suggestion of ttleir color.
"Russia is not barbaric. It is simple
and childlike, whence its enormous
charm. And it is a dancing nation: the
dances are national, unique and quite
unorientai. Peasants may be scon in
their log built villages dancing away
until they almost drop from fatigue.
The Russian dance is full of vitality,
spontaneous and strenuous: the east
ern dance is restrained, suggestive and

consistently gloomy. Of course there is
a tendency to depression, but it would
be equally correct to assume that 5er
