While reading the Harre letter in a Boston Sunday paper a few days ago the Inspector discovered that a "Space Writer" had discovered a new way for securing funds for a public hospital. His plan was to have .00 of our prosper ous citizens take out an insurance pol icy for 1(100 to be paid in 1.5 years. This it was claimed by the correspon dent, gives us $.")0,000 15 years from now and assures the city of a hospital. The Inspector asked the Club for an opinion regarding the plan, and all who responded, denounced it as too slow and not m any way satisfactory. The better way they said to raise funds for a city hospital was to raise them among former citizens who are now wealthy men and live other cities and wilh these erecta hospital. Here the Inspector thought was a good work for the ."Civic Federation to carry out. The women would be the best fitted for such work for who would refuse to subscribe for such a purpose when asked to do so by a woman ? The Civic Federation will surety re ceive liberal patronage at their May parly which they announce soon to be held at the Armory. "On The Corner" will have a goodly number in atlend encc to aid in the good work. The la dies have undertaken a most valuable venture and should have the support of very loyal citizen of the city. "On The Corner Club"' will it is ex pected send out a con-., any for the first regiment of Sharp shooters when the President issues his call. It is possi ble that a bund consisting of a hand or gan and a phonograph will also be sent to the seat of strife from The Corner. The Inspector learns that "On The Comer Club" intend to have a house wanning some evening next week when it is expected some member of the City government and a representative! of the Water Companies will give a joint de bate on the question of ranting prcmils for laying of pipes through certain streets. Knowing the ipialilications of tin- probable debaters the Inspector assured those "On The Corner" and ihose who read the repor's here record ed that there "Will be a hot time n The Corner." The local corps of the Salvation Army will be asked to furnish music on the "Corner" Sunday afternoon, as their patriotic airs are likely to arouse the members to such an extent that if "The National Volunteer lb servc'' even open an ollice here they will have plenty of recruits. Those if "The Club" who indulged in so much kickiirp-becausc there were no lights the past few nigiits ought to be thankful that we are not every night in the same condition. There was a lime when Harre was only feebly light cl willi unci nt kerosene lamps in order to find which each late pedestrian was obliged lo use a lantcin. If we could stand it for several thousand days and nil. bis nerhans we ought to be content for a few nights to remain in the "Dark" j when it is in aid i f a church organiza tion which is always of help to any city. The Inspector has been affected as much as others by the failure to have the lights but like otheis "On '1 he Corner" has to grin and bear it. Tiik Insi'Ectou.

Tbo friends and advocates of "uni versal peaco" and the foes of iutemper auco and inebriety aro pretty generally agreed that tbo expenses attending war and war armaments and liquid bever ages of an intoxicating or exhilarating kind are unduly large. There is an old proverb it is not a Swiss proverb, of course to tbo effect that a man who drinks moro than ho should "drinks liko a Swiss," and it is for this reason, perhaps and residents of the republic of Switzerland say for no better one that tbo fame of residents of Switzer land for sobriety is not as farreacbiug as the famo of tbo Scotch, for instance, for frugality. A recent computation which has appeared shows that the an nual expenditures of the Swiss for wine, beer, cider and braudy are 175,000,000 francs, six times as much as is spent on tho army. Germany expends, or, more properly, individual Germans expend, $500,000,000 a year on liquid refresh ments, distilled or fermented chiefly beef and Kbino wine and $120,000, 000 a year on tbo German army. Franco expends in u year 500,000,000 on drink, chiefly wine, apd $140,000,000 a year on the maintenance of the army of the republic. Tho Italians expend $250,000,000 u year for liquors, wines and cordials and $55,000,000 for the Italian army, tbo expenditures being in about tbo sumo ratio as in other nations. Austria Hungary expends less upon liquor in a your than any other conutry of tbo first class in Europe, amounting to about $225,000,000, though persons who aro familiar with life along the blue Danube might not unreasonably come to tbo conclusion that $200,000, 000 nf this sum was spent in the city of Vienna alone in lager beer. Such, however, is not the caso. In the moun tainous districts, particularly in the Tyrol, Transylvania and in Croatia, very little wine is drunk, and though Hungary produces a largo and steadily iucreaasiug amount of wine a very largo proportion of it is exported to other countries. Kelatively not much of it is kept for home consumption. Tbo Austria-Hungarian army costs $70,000,000 a year, or less than cue third of tbo cost of the liquors cou Bumed in a year. Tbo Russians expend $300,000,000 a year in liquors and $150,000,000 a year, or one-half as much, for tbo maintenance of the army. England expends $4h0,000,000 a year on beer, ale, wino, porter, gin, rum and smoky whisky and $90,000,000 a year on tbo maintenance of the British army. No one knows exactly bow much is spent iu the United States on liquor in a year, especially in prohibition states, but it is supposed that tbo whisky tak en lor medicinal purposes costs each year moro than does the maintenance of tbo regular army.
