WALL STREET IS INTERESTED Fancy Job of Trucking That Takes tho Minda of Financiers Off Money, Finance la what engages It mostly, but Wall street can spare a moment for other things that are Interesting, as It Is doing occasionally Just now to look on at some exhibitions of fancy trucking. The structural steel for the new building going up on Wall and Nassau Streets Is landed from lighters at a South street wharf at the foot of Wall street, so It Is only a short haul from the wharf to the new building, though It's a lively one. Some of the supporting columns on pillars going Into this building weigh from 25 tons to 30 tons each, but they are handled easily. They back one of those long and ponderous trucks with low, broad-rimmed, heavy, solid iron wheels down on the wharf, alongside the lighter, and then the lighter's steam derrick lifts off its deck one of those 30-ton pillars and lays it gently on the truck, doing this quickly and easily. To haul this load they have hooked to the team seven pairs of big hordes, a team of 14 horses, all used to the business and all pulling ably. All ready, the driver mounts to a seat on the forward end of the big pillar on the truck, which puts him high in the air, and gathers up his lines. There are three other men scat tered along the team as leaders and guides for the horses, and then with out flummery or ceremony they get away, starting the great load easily. There's a broad, easy sweep from the wharf Into the broad lower end of Wall street and the outfit makes this, describing a great arc, and then it straightens out for the run up Wall street. It's an up grade all the way from South street to Broadway, but the team takes it easily on a steady trot. It's as gCDd, If not better, than a circus, and primarily Interested though It is to finance. Wall street finds time to look when one of these great outfits sweeps by, New York Sun. DOGS HUNT THE TRUFFLES How That Table Delicacy la Obtained With Thtlr Assistance In France. Truffles like mushrooms, belong to the family of the fungi, but are a dis tinct and very peculiar genus. They are cryptogamic plants and subterran ean, their position underneath the soil varying from two to three inches to two feet in depth. They have no root, stem, or leaf, and vary in color from light brown to black. They are sometimes glob ular in form, and vary in Bize from that of a pecan to that of a duck's egg. Their surface is watery and cov ered with a skin. Their exact meth od of growth is not precisely known. They are, of course, regarded as a great luxury by the epicure. Truffles are mentioned by Juvenal, Pliny, Plutarch and Martial., The Ath enian epicures were acquainted with them, and a story Is told of a bon vi vant who freed a whole family of slaves who had invented a delicious method of preparing them. France has the credit of producing the finest truffles. Dogs are common ly bred to search for them. The method of "breaking" these dogs Is to give them for a time pieces of truffles every morning before they are allowed to partake of any other food. After a certain period, when their appetite for truffles increases, pieces are hidden in the ground, and they are made to find them. Thus they are gradually taught their busi ness, though it often takes as long as IS months before a dog becomes skill ed in the art. In some parts of France Poltou and Perigold, for Instance pigs are trained for truffle hunting, and by some they are deemed to be better fit ted for the work than dogs. Blind Girl's Poultry Yard.

City Clerk HOLD ENGLISH HIRING FAIR Decorations Are Used by Farm Hands to Distinguish Their Differ ent Callings One of the oldest Michaelmas hiring fairs in England was held in the an cient market place of High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, recently. From a wide radius, including parts of the three counties of Bucks, Berks and Oxon, farmers and agricultural em ployes in all departments flocked into the town early In the morning. Harvesting having been finished, the attendance was much larger than usual, and there was a general dispo sition to "change hands," though the average terms of remuneration show ed very little alteration. Several old time customs still pre vail, both at tho hiring and in regard to the conditions upon which farm hands are engaged for the 12 months. For Instance, plowmen decorate their buttonholes with strings of whipcord to denote their distinctive calling; shepherds display tufts of wool in their caps and their forelocks, and oth er farm hands utilize horsehair and fancy ribbons and rosettes for their personal adornment. A good deal of time was occupied In "making the best terms," and in ac cordance with precedent of many years standing the engagements were conditional on the supplying of "beer," or "harvesting allowance," as It is called. The old fashioned custom of hiring servants in this way enlisted a good deal of public interest The pleasure fair, relegated from the streets to a spacious enclosure in the town, attracted thousands, and it will be continued as usual for three days. POOR CARE TAKEN OF SHOES If Workmen Were Careful of Them the Business Wouldn't Be What It Is Now. "Did you ever notice," said the shoe salesman, "that the people who take the poorest care of their shoes are the ones who can least afford to get new ones? It's a fact.. though. Next time you ride in the Subway when tho car isn't so crowded you can see people's feet take a look at the row of shoes. Youll find the laborers and working men of all sorts wear shoes that show no signs of care since they came from the factory. The heavy brogans that once were black have become tho col or of natural leather; you can see where shoes that have been wet have warped, lost all shape and are ready to crack; and those that haven't been wet are Just drying up as the life of the leather oozes out. I tell you, if the workingmen cared for their -shoes properly the shoe business wouldn't be what It Is now. I am not talking about 'shine,' and I haven't any spe cial brand of blacking to sell. It's oil the leather needs, and it isn't oil that makes shoes shine. When the farm ers used to wear cowhide boots be fore they plowed and milked by ma chinery they used to take care of them by keeping them greased with tallow, and the country store didn't sell more than one pair of shoes a year to a man. But the men who do the heavy work now are sot so wise, and tho shoo trade takes toll of their ignorance, . k .. . t POOR OLD HUMAN NATURE Old-Fashioned Man Declares When Motorists Are Maaked No One Can Recognise Them. "Human nature, at least as she is depicted In humans. Is being sadly relegated to the background," remark ed an old-fashioned man who has kept his eyes opened for the last twenty years. ; 'How so?" asked his young friend. ' "Look at yourself and ask that ques tionif you can. You're a sight with that cap, those goggles, that coat! You and all other motorists, and all these up-to-date persons who have ta ken to the flying machines, are no more like human beings when you get on your sporting raiment than if you belonged to some queer species of ani mal. In the good old days of the horse you drove out in your hats and coats and your friends could recog nize you. Now you are masked worse than burglars and no one knows one of you from another. Why look at the women on the streets even! They don't look like the women God made. They are painted and puffed and dis torted by dress and those weird look ing" scroll-like veils until the human face and form are as unlike what na ture Intended them to bo as if she had had no hand in the matter at all. I am not peevish, but - I can't help standing up for the good old naturo that I love." Whereupon the younger man adjusted his goggles, drew down the vieor of his cap, cranked up his machine and prepared to leave. For New Parliament Building. The contract has been let for an ad dition to the British parliament build ing at Victoria, to cost $1,000,000, prac tically doubling the size ot the build ing. Work Is to be commenced Im mediately and rushed with all possible speed, as the present offices are so congested that clerks and officers are badly cramped to carry on the details of the provincial government. The building Is to be erected of British Columbia stone, same as original structure, and be fully up to all mod ern improvements. It is expected that ! when the building is completed and furnished and the grounds laid out in landscape the total outlay may , reach $1,250,000 and that British Co-1 lumbia will have the finest parliament 1 buildings In Canada.
