Six million dollars for serious, high grade music, the largest sum devoted to this purpose by any city In the world, will be spent, it Is estimated, in New York the present season, writes a correspondent. And even this does not Include the small fortunes spent annually for soloists and choirs in tlie fashionable churches nor the more moderate sunrt expended for organ ists and singers in the rest of the 1,16(5 churches of Greater New York. For its Sunday music New York probably pays $600,000 a year additional and employs an army of probably more than 15,000 musicians. It is, of 'irse, also exclue :e of the great sums paid for lighter music at the comic operas. For grand opera alone Father Knickerbocker will spend $2,000,000 just for seats and boxes In order to delight his soul with high notes and the deep tones of the world's greatest sopranos, tenors, contraltos, bassos, mezzos and barytones. And this does not include the sums spent on isir rlage hire, flowers, gowns and Jewels, that my lady of fashion may, from her box, join In the battle of the eyes with her social rirale. The salaries earned by some of the Individual musical performers are to be envied even by trust presidents. Caruso Is said to receive nearly a night for his operatic performance? in New York. lie himself declarer that bis voice wi'l net him $240,OCX .s year, mostly earned In America, Including about $100,000 for appear ing at private musicals given at th^ homes of wealthy Americans. Melba'r soprano is equally well rewarded, and thence the scale ranges down. When Adellna I'attl was In New York In the eighties it was said that she received $6,000 a night, a figure which rather throws the present salaries of Caruso or Melba In the shade. The musical spirit of a city, how ever. cannot l»e estimated merely by the number of dollars it spends. But It is significant of a new musical spirit that New York has over 30tKH' students of music in Its boundaries, who spend over $1,000,000 a year in tuition fees. This does not Include 700,000 pupils iu the public school* who receive regular mimical training a the expense of e city. The result of all this training is having its effect on the American business man, who. nntil recently, although willing to pay to hear music for his own pleasure did not appreciate the real civilizing influences of true musical education As a result, while the American busi ness man gave lavishly toward the en dowment of universities and support of charitable enterprises, the higher needs of musical culture did not ap peal to his heart and purse. Hence Do great schools of music grew up to vie with the jfres' conservatories In Europe, which are a charge against the governments or are endowed per sonally by the sovereigns. One explanation for this attitude of New York men Is, according to ex perts, the fact that for so long mu lt al education w considered unde sirable for boys a-id was regarded as an accomplishment suited only to the feminine temperament and graces, taence only a small proportion of New York's boys were trained at all in the appreciation of the deeper significance Of music, and the vast majority grew Into manhood fond, perhaps, of mu •ieal sounds, but know-ing nothing and ring little about really good music. Among the present generation of chil dren, however, there has been a large advance in musical training for boys —a fact that will, It is believed, have a marked effect on the musical work of the next decade. M#rea ef Gold la Ireland. One reservoir of stored up gold •eems to have been overlooked in the recent crisis. This Is Ireland, accord to the report ssued by the Irish department of agriculture recently. Not only are the savings of the people, represented by banking and govern ment stock statistics, higher than ever before, but more money was put away tft 1906 than In any previous year. Bank deposits on June 30 amounted to $240,335,000, an increase compared to 1906 of $11,125,000. The postal sav ings bank shows $53,185,000, an In crease of $890,000 trustee banks, $12, $80,000, an Increase of $30,000. The government funds are $195,955,000, an Increase of $11,195,000. Under the above four heads Invest ments have Increased In twenty years from $324,750,000 to $501,955,000. Irish railway receipts for Ufcft alio are the bigbest on record. Maat Die Standing. The Emperor of Austria during his lllneas insisted on transacting state business as usual. As soon as he left the nursery he began a course of train ing to fit himself for the high position he was to fill. At 16 he was an accom plished linguist and a scientific expert of no mean degree. He could ride and hunt with the tireless energy of a hardy sportsman, and his studies in literature and jurisprudence were con ducted under the most celebrated schol ars* of continental Kurope. That such a course of training did not react upon hi* health Is doubtless due to bis re markable memory, which even now is *nld to enable him to recall the face of the humblest of bis subjects, no matter how long the lapse of time. It Is a trad It fon of the Austrian royal house thrit no Emperor must die lying down. He mu«t staud up to receive the last dread messenger. RECIPE FOR Mil* 3TR ELS Y.

'But she isn't worth over $40 at the most.' 'And yet I am willing to give you $500 for her, and you can deliver her any time to suit your convenience.

EELIQION OF SOME PRESIDENTS. ft Has Had Little to Do la Makiag the Chief Mafflstrutea. Washington was an Episcopalian, but his etutwsaor, John Adam:.. was a Congregational 1st. Our third President, Thomas Jefferson, was a free thinker. Yet freedom of religion so widely ob tained at the beginning of the nation that the effort to lay out Jefferson at the (tolls proved a failure, though the contrast was made with John Adams' God-fearing religion. Jefferson never wavered In his Infidel beliefs. Adam* did. A quarter of a century after the defeat of the latter by Jefferson be wrote hiin that advancing years and ripening wisdom had wrought a great change in the religious opinions of the Adams family wh led bhem to for ke the stern anu cruel and unreason ing doctrines of Congregationalism for the rational beliefs of Cnitarlaulsm and that they had entered It* fold and wem happy In their new-found rela tions so compatible with the best prompting of the human heart. Upon receipt of this Mr. Jefferson replied that If any religion had a claim upon enlightenment it was i'uitarlanlsm and on a pinch he might avow himself one to please his family who did not share notions of a hereafter. Madison and Monroe were both Epis copalians--that Is, they both attended that church when they attended any although neither of them ever under went the rite of *oiitlrmatlou. Andrew Jackson, after tight ing his enemies to a standstill and never forgiving any of t'lem. became a Presbyterian as his 1 i was darkening .J its close. Martin an Buren, amid 1 e hills of the county of Columbia, professed the same faith With some mental reservations as did nearly all the subsequent Presidents the Democrats have fleeted, including Mr. Polk, Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Cleve land. The deeply religious Presidents have been few. Zachary Taylor ones said: "Doubt oppresses my mind when I turn to religion, which is not often, whether there is a second and more glorious existence than this one. Sometimes I believe In a future state, but more often that this is the tinal stage of action." Lincoln was uever a church attend ant until he became President, and not often then. He believed all would be saved or none. This lie afterwards gave up and said he doubted If there w s another worir. But as he had one job on his hands, saving the Union, he had no time to take up another In a field where so many had failed. John Son and Arthur did little church-going. Grant was firm In his Methodism, though he did not attend church until he was President. HayeR was pious and CarOeld ocupled middle ground. Benjamin Harrison was strong In his Presbyterlanism and zealous In living up to Its teaching. McKinley was the same kind of a man. CHILD SUICIDES. I a creasing Number* Came (•rave Concern la Oermany. The growing number »f child suicides In Germany—1,152 have occurred dur ing the last few years—is causing grave concern In that country. This problem o* child suicide," said a doctor, "Is one of the most fascina ting, one of the mosl terrible, and, at the same time, one of the most urgent of the present day. Precise statistics are not easily obtainable, but it Is safe to say that although our record Is not as bad as that of Germany, or even of Russia—in which country 337 cases were registered during a limited period recently—It Is sufficiently disquieting. "Why should boys and girls, upon the brink of life, so to s|*»ak, take their own lives with a determination and a deliberation often unequaled by sui cides of mature years? Many clever brains have confessed that It is a pain ful riddle. Personally. I believe that a large proportion of child suicides—quite apart from the admitted danger of mental overstrain at school—are the d! -ect result of w at I may call the disillusionment of life." "A young mind, when first brought Into touch with stern realities, invari ably suffers a woeful disappointment. Girls and boys alike cherish quixotic, romantic Ideas. The school girl thinks she will meet her hero the schoolboy imagines that the world Is at his feet. At the first contact with the sordid routine of life they recoil, and In this feeoll, which occurs, as a rule, between tj e ages of 12 and lft, their minds— which are in a delicate .half formed, impressionable stage—may be easily deranged. Caramon sense has not yet come to their aid, and the small re buffs of life sink deeply into their minds."

"Though I had often hear alx a£ if I never InMleved iu the north ud -xiutli position for beds," said one m' tin jtliy sieians oi a New York City hospital. "But now I am firmly convinced that with some persons and under certain conditions it is of great benefit. My atteutlon was drawn to the subject lately by one of our patients, a literary man, who was being treated for insom nia. One night be left his own room for the reason, as he said, that he could not sleep In it, and by a mere chance was moved into a vacant room on the opposite stde of the ward. The change was very henetlcial to him, and without giving auy partic- 'ar reason he ve the credit for his mprovement to new room. I noticed that the bed la which he enjoyed such refreshing sleep was placed with the head to the north. "The theory is that magnetic action has something to do with Inducing sleep, and that beds which have their heads to the north are best situated to get the benefit of this magnetic con dition. Now, mind you, 1 don't say positively that there is anything in magnetic action, whatever that inay mean, though I do say that some per sons are a*tually heuttfited by having their beds placed that way. I am eo firmly convinced of this that I have had my own bed placed that way, and though It may be Imagination, 1 think my sleep Is more restful In consequence of the change. I would liku all vrtio are Interested to try it and judge for themselves. I an: sure no harm will result, mod it may be that boaeit wiU ensue." Glaaa Telegraph Polea. Consular Agent Gustave C. Kothe, of Cassel, an agency of the Frankfort consulate, states that an architect of that city has been granted patents In Germany and other Europoan coun tries and also In the United States on an Invention for the manufacture of glass telegraph and telephone poles. Mr. Kothe writes: A stock company has been organ ised and a factory for the manufac turing of glass poles has been built at Grossalmerode, near Cassel. The glass mass of which the poles are made Is strengthened by Interlacing and Inter twining with strong wire threads. One of the prl' pal advantages of these poles would oe their use in tropi cal countries, where wooden poles are soon destroyed by the ravages of In sects and where cllmatical Influences are ruinous to wood. The selling price of the poles has not been fixed yet, but the company Is willing to accept 26 marks ($6) for a pole of the length of 7 meters (about 23 feet). The impe rial post department, which has con trol of the telegraph and telephone lines In this country, has ordered the use of these glass poles on one of their tracts. A Geod CaaMt, have often Interviewed John D. Rockefeller during a game of golf," said a New York reporter, "and a mild er-tempered golfer I have seldom seen. No matter what hard luck he plays in, Mr. Rockefeller n er loses his equa nimity. He told me one day that he despised a golfer who got angry and profane on the links. He said be knew a broker of that abominable type. "The broker, on a sunny autumn afternoon, set out to play nine holes. Ixoking back after he bad driven off, he saw a great crowd following. There were young men and old, good players and bad, all trailing close behind with looks of interest and expectation. "The broker paused and turned. He smiled politely and nervously. 'Really, gentlemen,' he said, 'this Is very flattering. I hope I am in good form this afternoon. 1 trust I ahail play well enough to reward all Chls kindly interest.' "An elderly lawyer laughed. "Kb, it Isn't that,' he said. 'We came out to listen. Coacerala* Woman Worker*, Home Interesting facts concerning 8 I I $ S 1 ft 5 i Lunch Counter. 1 women worker* are given by Dr. Joseph A.
