Fallacy of Situation Pointed Out by
Eastern Railroad Man Who Asks
Why Passes Should Not Be Exchang
ed Directly When Courtesy Is Mu
tual. ;
Special to The Globe.
NEW YORK, Dec. 26.—1t has de
veloped since Dec. 16, when Eastern
trunk line officials met here to consider
the advisability of continuing the anti
exchange pass agreement inaugurated
this year, that while the result of the
conferences was to continue the agree
ment many exceptions will be allowed.
Consequently the Christmas season has
been more marked this year with ex
changes of courtesies than last.
Agreement Is Farce.
An official of wide experience said to
day: "The Eastern anti-exchange pass
agreement has been a farce the past
year. It was conscientiously kept by
most of the lines in the letter, but. the
spirit of it has been broken. Certain
railway officers have even received
passes on other lines than their own
through their political friends. Why
should they not receive exchange
passes directly when the courtesy is
mutual?" .'• , .
Many, systems have long refused to
exchange passes with small roads, as
there is no justice or equity in such
exchanges. A system of 5,000 or 1,000
miles of line should, for example, judge
for itself whether it wishes to exchange
with a road of 200 or 300 mile* for
whose transportation its officials can
have no possible use from one years
end to another.
Western lines, following .the ex
ample of the Eastern lines, have pass
ed resolutions refusing exchange
passes with lines in central territory
whose officials practically act for their
Eastern trunk line connections.
Knoxville Man Desires to Sell Coal Cheap
er Than Dealers.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 26.— R.
W Austin of Knoxville, Term., trading
as the Live and Let Live Coal company,
which company, he states, was formed to
supply coal to the poor and whose profits
are donafed to the Knoxville Women's
Christian Association for the Poor, has
filed a complaint with the interstate
commerce commission alleging tnat me
Southern is discriminating in the supply
of cars for the coal trade. Mr. Austin
says his company's charges are greatly
below the extortionate prices per ton
exacted by the other coal dealers of
Knoxville, and that these dealers have
formed <a combine and fixed a schedule
of prices and agreed not to sell below
tllThl Ccomplaint alleges that in furnishing
cars for the transportation of coal from
the mines at Jellico, Term., to Knoxville
and other points on the Southern and
connecting lines, the defendant com
pany is discriminating against the com
plainant, the owners of the mines ship
ping to the complainant, the consumers
and the city of Knoxville itself and tnat
the railway company is legally required
to furnish the complainant wun sui
ficient cars to enable it to do business
and compete on equal terms with other
established coal dealers in Knoxville. An
investigation is asked for.

cessive passenger rates at 4 cents per

It Operates in a Variety of Ways Upon
Its Victims.
One of the most insidious and yet
amiable microbes that I know anything
about, remarked a local music teacher,
is that which we in this business call
the fiddle bug. The fiddle bug operates
upon those whom it takes possession
of in a great many ways. For exam
ple, there is a well-known physician
here in Washington who was seized
with the fiddle bug only about two
years ago, although he is now a man
well into middle age. It hit him bad.
The way it seized him at first was to
give him the Idea that he just natur-.
ally had to learn how to play on the
violin. He, a busy medical practition
er, past fifty, with the natural stiffness
of movement that comes with that age,
got it into his head that life would be
one long stretch of the bad lands and
a howling desert for him unless he
learned how to play on the violin!
Well, he began. He invested in a fine
and expensive outfit—first-rate violin
and bow, music rack, elementary violin
music—all the accessories. He engag
ed a good violin teacher. The teacher
looked the elderly man over and told
him frankly, at the outset, that he was
a good 1,000-to-l shot, or words to that
effect, so far as his chance of ever
learning to play on the violin was con
cerned. The doctor didn't take any
offense. He had the fiddle bug too bad
for anything like that, and he said he
was willing to pay the freight and take
a chance. He didn't have a particle
of music—that is, so far as the acquisi
tive end of it is concerned —in his
whole huge frame, and after about two
months' lessons the violin teacher told
the physician that it would take him
at least thirty years to learn how to
pound a bass drum, much less how to
play "Not For Joe" or "Yankee Doodle"
on the fiddle.
"This discourag-ed the doctor some,
and for the time he took the teacher's
word for it and abandoned his idea of
learning: the violin. Two months later
the fiddle bug nailed him again. He
bought a second violin —not that he
had disposed of the first one, but that
he liked fiddles —liked to have 'em
around him to look >atfr even if he
couldn't play. He engaged" a second
teacher, who van shrieking from the
doctor's presence at the end of the
fourth lesson with his fingers in his
ears. Well, since that time the doctor
has brought three new fiddles and en
gaged three new violin instructors, and
at the present hour he cannot even
draw a straight down bow on the open
A string to save his soul. It's not in
him. But the fiddle bug's in him, and
he'll never get rid^of it. It's the grief
of his life that he can't play one tune
on the fiddle. If he could only get
away with 'The Soldier's Joy' or 'The
Irish Washerwoman,' I'd be willing to
wager that for the remainder of his
days he'd be investing half his Income
as a medical practitioner in new fid
"Then there's a well known man in
one of the departments who's had the
fiddle bug for a matter of forty years—
ever since he was a boy. He had first
class instruction, time and again dur
ing all those years, and yet the best he
can do is to play just simple pieces
fairly well. He loves to play just these
simple pieces over every night of his
life, and he never misses a night. He
isn't under any delusion as to the ex
tent of his ability as a player—he
knows exactly where he stands on that,
and makes no bones about ridiculing
his own music. But he's just got the
fiddle bug, that's all, and he always
will have it. He's got fiddles and some
of them good ones, all over his house —
under sofas and lounges and beds, on
the table, on top of the bookcases—
they're everywhere; and he's still buy
ing 'em. He's spent thousands of dol
lars on fiddles and fiddle accouter
ments, although he's never been any
thing but a fairly comfortable man.
"Then, there's another department
man, this one younger, who has the
violin microbe in an odd form. He's a
fairly good player, just an average one,
without any particular inspiration.
He's been at it about ten years, and he
has spells of enthusiasm, during which
he'll get a teacher, have all his music
books dug out of the attic trunks and
start all over again. But when the en
thusiastic spell hits him he always has
to buy a new violin, for the reason that
he gets rid of 'em in short order when
the enthusiasm is punctured. His fid
dle ardor will last perhaps a month or
two, during which time he practices
fiercely and gets into all sorts of dick
ers for new fiddles. T£en some crack
erjack violinist comes along to Wash
ington and gives a concert, and this
enthusiast goes to hear the great play
er perform. He leaves the concert hall
in a state of utter gloom and depres
sion. The great player is so very great
indeed,, and the chance of ever being
able to attain one millionth part of his
proficiency is so completely out cf the
question. So this enthusiast returns to
his home and vows to his wife that
he's never, under any circumstances,
going to take a fiddle in his hands
again. He immediately begins to dig
around to find somebody that wants
to buy a good fiddle cheap. I've known
him to sell fiddles that he paid as high
as $100 to the first man that offered
him a ten-dollar note for it.
"After a while, as I say, the overpow
ering effect of the great player's music
wears off, and then he gets the fiddle
bug all over again and sets about to
take his old love into his heart once
more. .
"And yet the bug has another and
an exceedingly peculiar way of acting.
There are some fellows who are just
natural musicians—they're born with
it. It's as easy for them to pick up the
fiddle and run away with it, as the ex
pression goes, if they're started at the
instrument early enough, as it is for an
alert apprentice to learn the plumber's
trade. Well, I know perhaps a dozen
Washington men who possessed this
musical ability in their early youth,
and who were started at the violin by
their parents. Most of them had to be
virtually clubbed into practicing by
their parents, and yet, even with this
forced and unwilling effort, they be
came good players in the course of a
few years, capable, with study, of do
ing almost anything with the instru
ment. Well, all of these particular men
that I'm talking about have absolutely
dropped the violin since they arrived
at the age when they became inde
pendent of the control of their folks —
given it up absolutely and wholly, with
no thought of ever taking it up again.
And that's the fiddle bug—the people
who can't play want to, and the peo
ple who can won't." —Washington Star.
The Girls Will Win.
Out in a nice and quiet little town in
Nebraska conditions prevail that have
not heretofore materialized in any other
village, town or city in the United States.
Just what brought them about is not
stated, but the fact none the less exists
that the young men of the place have
pledged themselves, each to the other, not
to escort young ladies to places of en
tertainment where an admission fee is
charged. Inasmuch as a reservation is
made in favor of the churches, a suspi
cion might be entertained that a sordid
motive lies back of the resolve of the
young men. "
If this be so. then the young women
can felicitate themselves upon getting
rid of undesirable escorts, for the man
who is too stingy to occasionally, at least,
take his sweetheart to a place of enter
tainment can hardly be expected to pos
sess the inherent qualities that enter into
the makeup of a kind, loving husband.
It is possible, however, for the girls
of Wahoo, the Nebraska town, to set the
boys a lesson that will soon bring them
to "a sense of their own folly. Suppose
they should conclude to go to church by
themselves—not to attend social functions
of any kind, to not light the parlor fires
when the winds are chilly, and above all
to not indulge in buggy rides, except as
each others' company, when the breezes
are balmy, or to permit themselves to be
snugerled in the sleigh under the proverb
ial buffalo robe or wolf skin when*the
roads are white and sparkling and the
tinkle-tinkle of the bells furnish inspira
tion to life itself. If the girls of Wahoo
only know it. they possess all the winning
cards and it will be their own fault if
they do not properly play them.—St. Louis
The Telephone Girl Secure.
"Women have to fight for an «yen
chancfe with men in other lines." said
one of the officials of the New York Tel
ephone company the other day, "but in
our business they are in no danger from
male competition. It would be simply im
possible to run a telephone exchange with
male operators. -
"Whoever heard of a 'hello-boy? There
is trouble enough with boys answering
the 'phone in offices, and there is no dan
ger of their being used in place of girls
in the telephone exchanges. It is not
chiefly because girls are steadier, more
attentive, and more polite, but it is be
causea girl's voice carries better over the
wire than a boy's, being higher, clearer
and more penetrating. But there is still
a more important reason. A girl can tell
what a fellow on the other end of th*
wire is trying to say, when a boy would
be shouting hopelessly "What did you
say?" "
Father of Stories About Doctors.
Dr. W. W. Keen, of Philadelphia, the
surgeon who wrote recently to So/ator
Gullinger a striking open letter in defense
of vivisection, has the hobby of collect
ing anecdotes of physicians. These anec
dotes he preserves in scrapbooks and in
costly extra illustrated volumes, and
sometimes he reads^ selections from them
at medical festivals.
"The most common medical anecdotes,"
said Dr. Keen recently, "suggest that the
physician is a murderer. All such stories
are as old as the hills in their fundamental
idea, though your modern writer puts
them in new clothes; as ghastly as though
you should array a corpse in fancy dress.
"A lawyer and a doctor were conversing.
The doctor said: 'Your profession doesn't
make men angels, sir.' The lawyer an
swered: 'No, it is yours which does that.'
"This anecdote, which is 2,000 yeais
old." said Dr. Keen, "is reputed to be the
parent of all the myriad or medical an
ecdotes that now exist." —New York Tri
