What I* Going On in New York City Told in Intonating Manner CUM BROKERS DWINDLE WITH SLUMP IN MARKET New TORK.— The curb crowd U rapidly dwindling, and chaos ralgns among the comparatively few brokers of the "outside” market who congregate on Broad street these days. At least 25 per cent, of the men who were selling unlisted stocks dur iajg the flush times have departed for more lucrative climes. Many have gone to the western mining camps, and a few have obtained positions in mercantile houses. Stock Exchange houses that had been paying their curb representa tlres 950 a week have reduced the salaries to $25, and the men have not objected, being glad to get that sum. Only the salaried men on the qurb are igaklng money enough to live on. The reterans of the curb, are in a measure pleased by this gradual elimination, for It Is taking from the market what airs known as "wildcat" traders, men Who come there to make money any way and with any stock. These have been the first to go, and conservative men do not mourn their departure, j The effect of the lack of business lb the outside market is pronounced la many ways. The traders, for In- riS’TINO him. dally In his cell at the Tombs, Mrs. Evelyn Nesblt V Thaw is the sole comfort of her hus band these days. Deserted by her husband’s friends and left alone In toe hot months to carry cheer from me outside world to the man whose ibve for her caused him to kill Stan ford White, the actress-wife has been flMthful and uncomplaining, j Alone In her apartments In the Lor gine, the young wife seeins to have been a prisoner herself, for her only dentures out of doors have been to the black prison where Thaw sits plan tong whoa they trill take a trip to ■oxope. Her visits must lift Thaw in to cheerful hopefulness, for. of all those connected with the case, he is t)m most certain of aoqulttto in the to»t trial. Although this strain of more than a £as told on the beautiful model, Thaw still retains the girlish ! GOTHAM THE GREATEST i THEATRE CITY IN WORLD [BW YORK Is the greatest theater I city In the world. Its growth. H 1 toeatrically, has been phenomenal tonoe 1826, when the Bowery theater •tom built, In which went the large au diences of those days to hear Forrest, .the elder Booth, Charlotte Cushman And others only a little less in ability, flflnoe then the theater center;, by riy stages, has gone up Broadway about Forty-second street, with-Its , .Arms reaching out Into the other bor oughs until now the city has 96 places of amusement filled with pleasure seekers during the season. While New York, with Its 4,500,000 r sof population, has 96 places of amuse |ment, London, with 6,500,000 In Its (metropolitan district, has 78, and they teach average a smaller attendance than do these In tfew York, and dur 'ins the season there is a large pro ) portion of New Yorkers in their au 'dlenoes. Theater for theater, New [ (York has more money Invested In : buildings and fittings than has Lon don. ■ At the height of the New York amusement season there are as many i he Passing of the Fifth Avenue ho tel will mark the disappearance of T the last of the city's hotels possessing a distinctively political atmosphere. The Fifth Avenue hotel has been the center of Republican activity in New York almost ever since the party came into existence Until the last campaign the party headquarters for the state was In the hotel, and during the years when Thomas C. Platt was the boss he re sided there. Now Platt, boos no long er, has moved to an obscure side and only a few old-time politi cians are to be met wandering through the corridors of the famous f building on Madison square. 1 The Hoffman house once occupied a position In Democratic politics aim flar to that of the Fifth Avsaug In Re- stance, In flush times smoked Perfec to cigars and bought the best that the dealer* In the financial district had. Since the slump In the market start ed they have taken to pipes, and now amoke a cheap mixture of tobacco. It !■ the same with their luncheons. The high-priced cafes have been de serted for cheap restaurants. Formerly Commissioner Bingham’s guardians of the peace were kept busy preventing the brokers during the dull periods matching coins. Now they have nothing to do, for money Is sq scarce on the curb and In the pocketa of the brokers that they are not In clined to risk It. Again, every base ball and football game and- horse race was made the excuse for a bet. Now the handbook men who reaped large harvests have departed to other fields, and no betting of any consequence Is Indulged in. Telephones have recent ly been given up by brokers, and arbitrage wires have been cut out of the offices of some of the lirgest brok ers, so that from the top to the bot tom, from the employer to the mes senger boy, there is sadness in Broad street. DAILY VISITS OF WIFE SOLE COMFORTS OF THAW appearance and almost childlike de meanor. There are times that she baa entered the living tomb of her hus band pale and wan, but the clouds dis appear before she reaches her hus band. Her mission there Is tp. carry sunshine. While showing this devotion to Thaw, the wife gained one distinction last summer. She was the only wife of a millionaire who remained In hot New York while the summer resorts were open. Thaw’s buoyancy Is remarkable. Far from tiding and wasting away, the prison officials say that ha eats Ilka a laborer and. hla moody spells 'seem to have disappeared. In fact, he seems to have gained strength in his incarceration. Thaw, for once, seems to be pleased with the legal arrangements, and ap pears willing to leave his case In the hands of attorneys. as 114,000 persons in Its place of pub lic amusement In one night. They are now rapidly approaching that condi tion since the home-coming season has set In, and the number of strangers la Increasing with the advancing au tumn. The attendance la now grow ing from night to night, and is par ticularly noticeable In the houses where are the more successful plays. New York city has dally within Its borders more pleasure seeking strangers than has London, and %fter November 1 there will be a. daily aver age of 16,000 out of town patrons In our theaters. It Is the exception when a visitor In New York does not go to the theater, even if he stay hut one day, and many visitors for a week or more will go to some place of amusement each day of their stay. ' Then New Yorker* are natural the ater attendants and many of them take all of their relaxation in this man ner. This is true of the man with n small salary as well as of the man of wealth, and real sacrifices are often made to save money for theater tickets. FAMOUS FOIinCAL CENTER WILL SOON DISAPPEAR publican affairs, but the old building has been replaced by a new one, much as the old leaders of Democracy have been. About the only prominent political figure at present closely identified with any metropolitan hotel la Gov. Hughes, who has announced that his legal res idence la thie Hotel Astor, fronting on Broadway, at Longacre square. If the Hughes political star rises as far as the governor’s admirer's expect. It may he that the new Aator will fall heir to the political glories of the old Fifth Avenue. • It la more prob able, however, that the slse of the great new establishments like the Astor and the varied interests center ed In them will prevent them from be coming famed especially for their po lities! importance THE DAIRY BUILD YOUR OWN fflLO.

The Joints, cautions Mis souri Valley Farmer, have to be tight —either set in paint or painted on the outside to exclude the air.

The Btorrs, Conn., agricultural ex periment station has carefully tested the various devices In covered milk pails in producing sanitary milk and in reducing the Incident bacteria In the process of milking. In bulletin 48 In which these experiments are shown is the following summary of results and recommendations: 1. The' use of the covered milk pail la of great advantage la any stable In excluding dirt and bacteria from the milk. The relative advantage gained by the use of the cover do pepds upon the sanitary condition of the'stable. 2. The special form of cover does not seem to be Important provided It is h device practical for use and the area through which dirt cam Shin ac cess to the milk la reduced,aa much as possible. 3. Whether or not n strainer on the covered pell Is desirable depends upon the style of the straining device. 4. 'The use of the strainer in a pall where the dirt which falls into the opening Is likely to be driven through by the succeeding streams of ibllk is not desirable. Its use tends to In crease the germ' content of the milk and Injure Its keeping quality. 5. In pails where the dirt which falls In does not remain where the suc ceeding streams strike against it a strainer cloth aids In keeping down the number of bacteria which gain ac cess to the milk. DAIRY NOTES. Keep In mind the old axiom, "a merciful man is merciful to his dumb beast.” Now is the time of year to begin throwing some fodder corn over the fence to the cows. Have the cows freshen In the fall. The fall cow makes the most money for her owner. Stand by your home creamery* and help to build up a business in which you can have an interest. No man can make a success build ing up a dairy herd who does not take good care of the calves. Plan on rearranging the barn or shed this fall if necessary in order to keep the-cows warm next winter. Don’t milk the cow right up to the time of calving just because she shows a willingness. She needs a couple of months’ rest If butter Is worked too much. It will show an oily or greasy look, and it Is then that the groin Is Injured. The dairy house should be so ar ranged that the temperature is direct ly under the control of the dairyman. Feed only clean, wholesome food, and never feed strong flavored foods, such as cabbage, tun ips, potatoes, etc. Be Quiet With Cows. The milking must be done la a quick, quiet manner and the milk re moved to a clean, cool place as soon as possible after milking, it should then be thoroughly strained Into crocks or Immediately run through a separator and the skim milk fed to the calves, pigs-or poultry. Value of Good Care. Don’t give all the credit of great yields of butter to the bieedlng of the cow only. Remember good care Is a factor to be reckoned with also, and counts next to good blood. Care of Milk. Cleanliness la milking Is one of the most essential acta in the care of silk. The cow’e udder should always 3e wiped clean with a clean, damp •doth VALUE OF DAIRY EXPERIENCE. Dairy Experience Good for the Man Who Uses Hie Thinker. The value t>f dairy experience de pends on the man that has the ex perience. The man that thinks and sees and figures and calculates makes something out of his experience, while the man that never sees and never changes gain nothing In particular by his experience. He la like the race horse running round and round In the ring. He may In time gain n lit tle extra muscle and be able to go a little faster, but he gains nothing else. To the progressive man experience la worth much. He la a scholar and Is In the school of experience. Every day brings a new lesson and every day he is more able to do well with hla work than he was the day before. He figures and calculates. He weighs the milk of all his cows and learns in a few months which cows are giv ing little and which much. He tests the milk of his cows and with the two kinds of Information he la able to pick out hla poorest cows and discard them. On the other hand, he la able to pick out hla few very best cows and breed them to males thgt will give him excellent milkers. This kind of experience he turns Into money, while the other kind of a man would not even lay hold of the facta In the case. The value of experience depends on the man, aays Farmers' Review. Many men run In a circle and are al ways contemplating the same facts. A few men try hard to get out of their circles and do this by a close scrutiny and analysis of the facts they see, by which they are able to mark out for themselves new circles on a broader plan. We all run In circles in spite of ourselves, but we can enlarge oun cir cles If we try, and there la nowhere a greater necessity for trying than in dairying. WHAT IS IT ? A Query as to the Difference Between Two Dairy Cows. Two oowa stand side by side in the stable. To both cows the same ration la fed yet one will extract from that lood os much again butterfat aa the the other. The butter product of the food Is 100 per cent, greater with one cow that the other. This fact is seen In too great frequency in all herds of cows. What Is that inner quality Whereby one cow can produce so much more than the other from the same food? It is hard to find the right name for It, but It may be called "dairy quality.” Now, certain breeds of cattle are distinguished for this quality. They have the power to ac complish this work In greater pro portion and perfection by reason of having been bred to that purpose from long lines of ancestors of like quality. One would think that there would not be a dairy farmer In the land who would not he keenly alive to the neces sity and economy of using such cattle for dairy purposes. As soon would we think he would cut hay., with a reaper and call it the best way. But the so-called general purpose notion has destroyed in not a few men .the power to look into this question in an economical way, says Hoard’s Dairyman. They seem to be unable to take the same advantage in their choice of cow machinery that they do in choosing their mechanical machin ery. They cannot be fooled into tak ing a plow for a cultivator, yet thou sands of farmers will spend their lives in trying to make cowfe of beef-breed ing do dairy work. If they were close students of “cause and effect” they would not be beguiled this way. Why should pot tbo farmer be a close student of cause and effect? A GOOD ROUND BARN. One Which an Indiana Farmsr Built at Moderata Cost. The illustration shows a round con crete barn, built by J. A. Gaskill, Greene county, Indlaua, at a cost of Barn of Comont Blocks. SI,OOO. Mr. Gaskill made the blocks himself, thus reducing the cash out lay very materially. The barn if 70 feet In diameter. 36 feet to center dome, 14-foot side walls. Btall room next to out wall all the way round. Accommodates 50 head of cattle and eight head of horses. Butter Going Up. Butter going higher and higher and still people going out of the dairy business. Why? Simply because cows are not milked by machinery. Wo now have an easier way of doing all kinds of farm work except the milk ing which we still are doing by the same old method that was in vogue a thousand years ago.
