Superior Destructive Power of the For mer. In none of the decisive battles of the world, from Marathon to the Marne, did the total of killed and bounded exceed the number that au tomobiles accounted for in the United States in l!r20. Twelve thousand killed and a mil- 'lion and a half persons injured what a price to pay for recklessness 1 In ad dition, the Insurance Press report that the economic looses resulting from mo tor car accidents amounted to more than a billion dollars. ; War could be little worse. More over, war may have some justification. Automobile accidents have not. There are only two kinds, an export says, hat are excusable. One is "infrequent, unavoidable i-kids"; the other is the midden breaking of some vital part tf a machine. But Mich breaks are un common, now that motor car construc tion has become science. ; All other accidents are due to down right carelessness, disregard for the rights and safety of fellow-motorists and similar causes with which drivers and nondrivera are familiar. They ac count for the wasteful lose of life, the crippling and injuring in one year of six times as many persons as there are in Providence and the destruction of property that seems trilling when each losa is looked at separately, but that appals when the aggregate amount is scanned.

Providence Journal The Bootblack. Fifty years ago boys did the street bootblacking in New York. That was in the days of Mason's Blacking, when the polish was put on with brushes In stead of cloths, and required elbow grease. Polished shoes now are prac tically enameled. Then the shine was sensitive, and disappeared with the least rub or dampness. But it was a busy army of boys on the streets of New York, with their little boxes and humble equipment, seeking five cent and ten cent shin plasters in the years before specie pay ments were resumed following the War of the Reliellion, and many of them clothed and fed themselves with their earnings. Now a boy must be sixteen before he may lawfully shine shoes in New York, a job peculiarly adapted to boys from twelve to fifteen years old. They cannot vote, so shoe shining has be come a man's job, because when a boy is sixteen his voice is turning baas, and he can earn more at something else. Wiicago Journal of Commerce. Tolerable.
