.How to Tell Bridal Conplee. '
Hardly a week goes by," says a
parlor-car porter, 'that I don't eee a
bridal couple just starting: on their
honeymoon..' I don't exactly, know
how I can tell them, but they . are at
plainly marked to my eyes as if they
had the words 'bride.' and , 'bride
.groom stamped in big letters on their
foreheads. There Is something about
them that gives the whole situation
away a kind of cling-next-to-me-darling
air. Of course, I had made a
mistake now and then, but it, is very
seldom I do, and I've often found out,
after changing my mind two or three
times, that I . was right after all,
though certain : appearances , were
against it We have one test which
never falls, and when a doubtful par
ty comes we try it on Ihom, just to bo
sure, you know.11
What's the test?'1 '... .
"Well, I'll tell you. Not many
weeks ago a couplo got into the' cur
and sat down very quietly, as if they
had been used to it all tbeir , lives.
These didn't seem to hare the bride
and bridegroom air about them at all,
and from external appearances they
might have been brother and sister,
or married for years, but still there
was something there that made me
suspicious, so when I saw them to
gether I went to the newsboy, and I
says: 'Bill, here's a double party;
get out the sample copies.1
So Bill got his tests and walked
through the car. . lie offered books or
newspapers to everybody, and wben
he came to the suspected party he took
out of his pile two little books . and
said, so that nearly everybody could
hear him: 'Very useful books, sir;
hints on housekeeping and hints to
newly married people. Only 25
' That did it. The girl got as red
as a rose, nud the man blushed and
said a weak BOrt of 'N-n-n-no.1 Then
they looked at each other and sort of
sniggered, and I caught him full in
the eye and smiled a sweet smile, giv
ing him a respectful wink at the same
time. It was all settled in a minute;
there was no doubt about it.
There aro plenty of other ways by
- which I can spot a bride and bride
groom, and they are as safe generally
as the test. y .
"The custom of throwing1 rice after
a bridal couple always makes it un
pleasant for the party,, as lots of rice
is almost sure to stick to their clothes,
hat, and in their hair.1,1
"Why do you take such pains to
find out whether they are newly mar
ried or notP" , . - '
"Oh. when they see we tumble to It
we generally get a good tip just for
luck, you know.11
A New York editor speaks thus en
couragingly to women:;' "la a great
many newspaper omces there is a
prejudice against women. Why this
is so I do not know. I have employed
them for a number of years, and
have always found them to be pains
taking, accurate, ' and reliable. In
many cases I have found that women
do certain kinds of newspaper work
more satisfactorily than men can, and
vice versa.11 , . , .
"One of the best Washington cor
respondents lever knew was a wo
man.; She was keenly alive to all the
exigencies of dally newspaper work,
was quick L of wit, a splendid news
gatherer, and during the Garfield
campaign and the subsequent compli
cations that arose from his death, was
an Invaluable aid to me. ., I have em
ployed women In office work in news
paper with considerable satisfaction,
and In numberless coses I have found
ttiat they could do some kinds of re
porting far better than men. it is a
mUtuke to think that women are only
lit to write fashion articles. The edi
tor of one of the great Sunday pews
pttpers of New York Is a woman. And
she not only manages, to keep her pa
per in full touch with the tiroes, but
she often leads in public thought and
opinion. V I think the day is coming
when women will do a large propor
tion of newspaper reporting. - In near
ly all the big cities they are now . do
ing a little of it. ' Even the bouse of
parliament has been forced to admit
a woman to tbe reporters1 gallery,
very much o the d'sgast of the male
reporters.. W ma make splendid
typesetters, good pro f-readers, good
reporters and - fair editors. . . They do
not make as good editor as men. for
tho reason, perhaps., that they are not

see no reason why women should , not
in the hear tuttire find daily journal

will be brought into competition with
men, . to be sure, but I hare little
doubt that they will be able to success
fully hold their own."
The Never o Ashu
? When a certain llterarv " ladv
was asked -if she had ever known of ,
an old woman whose.' house 'did not .
suit her, moving into a new barn, she
answered, "No, I never knew of a easel
exactly like that.11 Certainly, the
handsome, new barns which adorn
country places now with windows to
set one dreaming directly of draperies
to suit them, are quite enough to sug
gest the story. ';But " 1( might easily
be true, V says one . of . our
readers.- Four women were talking
over, the situation.: "I know a woman
whose husband was 'well-to-do who
always earned the money for her own
clothes, because she hated to ask him
for any money, and he was so stingy
that he sever gave her a dollar; she
always worked hard, too. It always
makes me angry when' I think of it1,
4 'That reminds me of a case I knew
of up in New Hampshire, 11 said a sec
ond speaker. "The woman's husband
was like Adonlram Penn in the story,
only more 'set. No revolt , could
reach his feelings and you know Ado
nlram did show a little feetlng at the
last. Well, the sister of this woman
I am telling about was coming on
from the West and they hadn't met for
years and years, and I wrote for them
both to come to our house and have
a good visit together; they were both
old friends of ours. The New Hamp
shire woman's husband , put his foot
down jshe should not come; he would
give her "no money. 'for wild-goose
chases,1 he said. Well, her heart was
set on seeing her sister again, and she
just got a tub of butter out of the
houBe on the sly and sold it to get
money to come to Boston with. Dear
me! it did my heart good' to hear her
speak her mind about that man. She
was so mad, she said right out that she
did hope she'd live ., to see him laid
away. But he Isn't; , she hasn't had
the handling of any money yet, poor
thing." ''I knew a woman,11 began
tho other two, but there was an inter
ruption then. . A boy and a collie came
in and there was a ' diversion from
topics of revolt, but the boy's mother
said,' "Women do so hate to ask for
money. Remember that when you
are married; my son.11'.

Marriage With Drunkards,
The efforts to raise , the poor and

are practically of no value as long as
marriage with inebriates is permitted.
Recently the legislature of the state
of victoria, in, Australia, has passed a
law which gives a wife the right of di
vorce it the husband is found to be an
habitual drunkard. '. If after marriage
she discovers tbat he is an Inebriate, J
she can also get a divorce. The husband
can do the same with the wife If she

It is not our purpose to consider the

the ignorant, charlatans
and quacks to prescribe for the mala
dies that afflict the human family. We
simply declare that the physician who .
knows something is better than the
physician who knows nothing; or very "
little indeed about the structure aod

. The Phllodelphiar-epglneer who de
vised the plan for a railway motor to
run on an improved railway -between
New York and Philadelphia has set the
whole world wondering. A picture of
his proposed motor appeared recently
in Thb Blade. His railway is to be
limited entirely to passenger traffic and
the tracks will be elevated the entire
distance. It will be built as nearly
straight aa possible and. there will be
no perceptible grading. Electricity,
will furnish the motive power for pro;
polling the cars, and it is proposed to
make but two stops between the cities
the road is to connect ' '' :
The average speed of the carl will be
a hundred and. fifty miles per hour.
Tbe time between New York and Phila
delphia will be thirty-six minutes.
This will include stoppages. The track
will be so smooth tbat tho occupants of
the cars will feel no jar while moving
at the high rate of speed. As there
will be no locomotive attached to the
trains, there will be no smoke. 1 As the
track will be elevated, there will be no
dust entering the. cars. All danger of.
accidents will be limited to the liability '
of the cars "to jump tbe track.1 It is .
believed there will be no danger from
that source. Should this road be con
structed, it would probably produce a
revolution in the transportation of pas
sengers. ' It might cause the managers
of all roads running through populous
sections to elevate their tracks. This
would secure speed and comfort and
would tend to prevent all ordinary ac
cidents. ' ' 'v v.vu:.
The .time will probably come when
freight and passenger trains will run on
different tracks. Land on which to
construct railroads is constantly be
coming more valuable. The state, of
affairs that renders sixteen-story build-
ings economical in some of our cities,
may make a two-story railroad profit
able. Most of tbe persons who lose -their
lives at railway crossings ar
killed by passenger trains, for the rea
son that they run at high rate of
speed. , . - ' ' ' "... ,;
Wrong Idea of Moral Tralalaa;. '
. Moral training has vet to be organized .'
and systematized before It can be ear- -ried
on with efficiency on a large scale,
and this will not be done nntli its im
portance Is more folly . felt than at
freient It Is taken for granted, in a
oose kind of way, that a good char
acter will come of Itself to most people. ,
No one supposes that knowledge comas
of itself, that mental power ean be)
gained without trouble, that a trade or
profession can be successfully pursued
without previous system alio -prepara-
tion. Yet all or any of these are more
possible than that a oharacter worthy
of respect and admiration should spring;
up without being built,, or without
either care or knowledge on the part
of the builder of the materials he uses, .
or the way in which to combine them.
