The company say that it would cost  $3(5,000 to carry out such a system as  ileiiiandi'd by the council. On the  other hand it has been stated at the  council hoard and it is believed by  many of the ratepayers that a perfectly adequate system for lire protHCtion  purposes could be put in for $15,000.

Two  things are certain one is lhat such a  duplicate system is n necessity- and  the other that, whether w u purchase  the company's plant or tint, the city  has to put it in itself, for the simple  reason that it is cheaper lo borrow the  necessary amount at 5 per cent, than lo  pay the company a yeaily rrtiIal equal  to 10_pi'r cent., which is what'Ihey  demand if they'do the wnrk.

Amherst, N.S., August 2I>.���������A rousing public meeting assembled last  night in the Acadey of Music, by far  the largest public hall In Amherst,  to ratify the nomination of C. 11.

The hall was crowded to  the doors log hefoie lhe proceedings  commenced. It was 20 o'clock when  Sir Charles Tupper entered, lie was  received with long and continued  cheers.  Sir Charles began his speech by  referring in touching words to the  loss Cumberland and Canada had sustained by the death of Hon. A. R.  Dickey. But the party was. he said,  fortunate in having been able to secure in Mr. Cahan a sucossor lo him  as thc standard bearer ot the Liberal-  Conservative party in Cumberland.

RACIAL TROUBLE.  Canada has'a  serious  race  trouble  ���������an its hands, but the trouble is mostly  imaginary.      The Globe  lashes  itself  into a  fury  at  short    intervals  over  the terrible  race and creed  iiro'.l-.ims  ot this country, but the fury is only  assumed for political purposes.   If wc  were face to face with a race problem  such as  tliey  have it in  the    United  States, there would bo some reason m  the  fury  of   political   press,   but,    as  a matter of    fact, our racial troubles  are   of  a   very   mild   form   compared  with   those   of  our  neighbors.      Tho  newspapers  of Canada  arc  not r.uv-l-  ened  with  reports  of encounters  between French and English-Cauidinns.  It Is an exceptional day that does mt  furnish the  United States  press wilh  one or more items of the lynching of  negroes by white men, or the assault  of white women by negroes.   Com . to  think of it, it is a rare occurrence for  a French-Canadian  to be lynched  or  revolvered  by   an    English-Canadian.  Nor do we often hear of French-Canadians   killing     their     fellow-British  subjects. There certainly has not been  a case of this kind for a  week  back  nor a  month,  nor a  year,  nor a decade.    As a matter of fact, it would  be difficult   for  thc average  man    lo  Tecall   a   single   instance   to   parallel  one of the events whicli occur in the  United   States   almost   daily.      Even  Tarte at his worst may be set down  as a negligable racial factor, because  the  only   weapons   he  uses    are  his  mouth  and "a  bundle    of    hysterical  nerves.    Who, let us ask. is responsible for the socalled racial troubles in  this  couutry?   Who  bin  the  politicians and papers like the Globe,    thai  lose  no  opportunity   to   magnify   trivial incidents for, political  and  party  ���������purposes? T.he__French  and. English;  speaking people of Canada seem to  have no trouble between themselves.  The whole racket Is a wordy one  raised and perpetuated by the politicians.  Canada ought to be thankful that  it has no really serious race problem  to deal with. The ugliest feature in  United States politics today is the  negro question, followed cosely by  anarchy and socialism. A general  uprising of the negroes of the United  States in the near future need not  create a great deal of surprise. The  massacres that would follow such a  contingency would be fearful to contemplate. We in Canada need not  tear any such calamity. Tarte, Bourassa, and the Globe do not carry  lethal weapons. They are practically  harmless, either immediately or prospectively. They merely weary us  with their hysteria.���������Montreal World.  CABAL ENLARGEMENT  It is the boast of the Laurier government that it has advanced the  work of canal enlargement much  more rapidly than was the  case under the previous government.  We do not see the reasonableness of  such boasting. The government has  been In office over four years now.  and it is alleged that the work of  enlargement Is completed. It is a  fact nevertheless that shipment of  grain from Montreal is less up to  date this year than it was last, season. Up to a week ago thc shipments  of grain this year were 1G.S5G.090  bushels, as against *lS,lS9,3!)!i bushels  last year, being a decrease of 1.3S3.300  bushels. If the canal system is enlarged, how comes It that the exports  are decreasing? Nor is there any  prospect that there will be a betterment, next season. The Connors syndicate has as yet done no work In  connexion with Its proposed elevators.  The Montreal Trade "Bulletin is, in  fact, doubtful about thc ultimate intentions of Mr. Connors. "So much  hats already been promised," it says.  "that has not been  fulfilled  that  we  they  had   changed   thoir  minds.   Addressing lhe meeting as a gathering  of   Liberal-Conservatives, made up of  free aud intelligent electors,  he.    Sir  Charles,  proposed  briefly  putting before  the audience some  of  the  reasons   why   they   should    vote   for  the  Liberal     Conservatives     (Applause.)  When    Sir    .lohn    Macdonald      was  charged   with   forming a   government  in 1S67 he selected seven Liberals and  six  Conservatives,  making a Liberal-  Conservative   government.    The   best  elements In both parties had been secured   by .him. and  Liberal-Conservatives had preserved that record. "We  retained   the. best  of  both,"  he  said,  "and have them in tbe present bouse.  We   have   to   this     day   a   clear   cut  policy.

The  construction  of   inter-oceanic  railway,    the   establishment of a national policy of promoting Canadian  industries,  with   its  beneflcient results, were items in this  noble record, n record made in  spite  of   violent   Liberal     opposition.       lt  affords proor lhat. we were right and  thoy   were,   wrong,   and   their   action  sines  obtaining power  In   l-Pfi  shows  the   same   thing."     (Applause.)       Sir  Charles then  went on  to  expose   the  record  nf Liberal   promises,  as   regularly violated.    The people could iiol  afford   to   trust, men   who   had   given  the lie to all they ever stated. What  had they accomplished ? Their boasted preferential British tariff had succeeded   only   in   excluding    Canadian  products from countries where before  they   had   found   entrance.    Mc   challenged Liberals to point to one simple  act hy  tbe  Liberal  paijty   which   has  contributed   to   tho   advancement   of  trade, business or Ihe development of  Canada.   No man could put his (Inner  on  any   such   act.     (Applause.)     Foils years the Liberals had shouted that  they  would   lax  the   people  for  from  three  to live,  millions  less,  but  they  had  added  nearly 20  millions  to  the  people's burden.

The  maladministration of affairs under Liberal rule  in   Yukon  had   been  such  as   to  disgrace ' the   name  of  Canada  on   three  continents,   and   they  hail   refused   to  appoint an independent enquiry. "You  are asked to look into these matters,"  said Sir Charles, "and to examine the  records of each   party.    The  Liberal-  Conservative party even  by  the  confession   of   our   opponents,   has   been  eminently successful in proposing and  carrying   out 'measures   for   the   well  being and advancement   of our country,  and   I   ask   if  the  time  has   not  come   when   I   can.   with     assurance,  appeal   to   the   people   to   return   to  power  that  great parly."

We  should have nothing too fine for comfort, and welcome our friends in  rooms made homelike by our dally  use.  lt is well to have easy rules about  breakfast. It is customary to give  one's guest the option of having tea  or coffee, rolls and fruit sent to their  rooms, or ot joining the family.  No hostess apologizes for any guest.  All arc under tho same roof and all  arc on the samo social plane and  should  receive   equal   consideration.  It is a disputed point whether host  or guest shorn! suggest retiring for the  night. It relieves visitors to know  tbe ways of the household, and a  readiness to comply with ihem is a  mark of politeness.  lt shows no lack of politeness to  -refrain from urging friends to extend  their visit. They probably have other  pleasant plans and a hostess may be  asking a great favor when she  fancies she is conferring one.  Experienced entertainers recommend that, tho men generally spend  the mornings together and women  enjoy each other's society. All moot  at  luncheon.  Hosts and guests meet in the drawing or living room before the meals.  Not less than five or more than 15  minutes should be allowed for all to  assemble.  Every guest should be made, to feel  that his or her presence has added  to thc pleasure of tho entertainment,  and conferred a personal gratification  upon   the   hosts.  A prompt expression of gratification  in remembering the visit, at. once,  upon returning home, is an evidence  of  good  breeding.  A guest should hold sacred anything that may be learned ot the  family life or the peculiarities of any  member of the household where hos-  pitalitv has been  accepted.

CROSS  THE LAST OF THE TAILOR-MADE  GIRL  LEGAL   ODDITIES  A sislcr of the late E.P.Roe tolls an  amusing story of the first losson received by her brother and herself in  Roman history.  Among our most loved and honored guests during our childhood.was  Dr. Samuel Cox, for many years a  prominent clergyman in New York. At  times our conversation turned on history, and I remember, on one occasion, ho asked Edward and me if we  could give the names of tho first  Roman triumvirate.  At this period of our existence the  name "Caesar" was associated exclusively with an old colored man.  whom we often visited, and who lived  upon a lonely road in the neighborhood. We were vastly astonished,  therefore, to learn that the name had  ever heen borne by a more illustrious  person than our dusky friend; . but  we listened entranced to the stories  of tho rivalry of Caesar and Pompcy  for the empire of the world.  Unhappily the good doctor could not  remember the name of the third tii-  umvir, and the lack troubled him  greatly. That night about 2 o'clock  I was startled hy a loud knock at my  bedroom door, and Doctor Ccx called  out:  "Mary are you awake?"  1 replied that I was���������as indeed  was everyone else in the house by  that time.  "It's Crassus," said the doctor, and  then ho,returned to his room, greatly  relieved.  Neither Edward or, I ever forgot that  first lesson in Roman history.   o   London Globe: The present year is  remarkable, for several things, and  among them for tlie disappearance of  the tailor-made girl. A year or two  ago she was in great force among us  from the perfectly made coat and skirt  to the reach-me-down imitation which  so indifferently copied the groat original. Last year tho tailor-made girl  had lost much of hor hold on us, and  this year sho has disappeared altogether. She is no longer smart in  London and the coat and skirt have  vanished as utterly as ,the crinoline  from the wesL ond of l_ondon. This  year, dress has been more aggressively feminine than ,at any period for  the last five or six seasons and diaphanous materials of all sorts and  kinds, accentuated by frills and chiffons, have taken the place of the hard  outlines of the cloth coat and skirl.  Tho mannish girl has had hor day  in London, though she may survive in  tlie country, and probably is ��������� to be  found on tho lawn tennis courts that  aro still left to us. That we shall see  when the exodus from town brings  another change into tho world of  dress. But meanwhile for ono thing  we must be thankful. The ��������� ati.lor  mado skirt has, happily, dragged  down into oblivion that unspeakable  horror, the sailor straw hat. No  woman who really respected herself  and knew what was due to her appearance could ever have worn that sailor hat. Its hard outlines ruined the  finest profile aud only the very young  could bear its harsh and rigid severity. The tailor-made girl was charming while she lasted, and we shall  always think kindly of her for taking  the sailor hat into limbo.   o   HOPE  FOll  THE  BIKR  "I,sce that the German count's balloon can he steered in any direction  if tho wind isn't too strong."

About the lasl iilacc one would look  for humor would be in the statute  book, anil yet occasional gleams of  fun are found there. The Kentucky  legislature recently passed an . act  whicli reads: "It shall be unlawful  ror any person lo fire or discharge at  random any deadly weapon, whether  said weapon he loaded nr unloaded."  The idea of discharging an unloaded  weapon is original with the ICentucl-jy  Klalosmon.  A little' Iowa girl was hlttcn by a  dog at which she had thrown sticks  ami stones a few months before, and  thia was pleaded in extenuation ot  damages; but the court laid down the  doctrine that "a dog has no right to  breed over Its wrongs and rumemuer  in malice."  fn a "lawsuit arising out of the unlawful acts of a disorderly mule" opinion says ho was found "loitering  about the strevts without any apparent business, no visible means ot support, and no evidence of ownership,  rxc-pting a yoke on his neck." which  wa? proof that the mule had been at  some time in a.' stale ot subjection,  but did not indicate to whom." Being  arrested and taken to the lockup.  ixttc-r five days' delay an advertisement was svubllshed for two days, and  then the mule was sold. This notice  us' held insufficient, on the ground  .that "no .owner ..would feel _any gron t  sen?-*? of loss ln so short a time?"-on-  the ouestion of delay before publishing  th*������ notice, which the ordinance required to be published immediately,  the court saJd:  "The argument Is that the word  'Immediately.' as used in the ordinance, does not mean 'instantaneously,'  that the pound keeper must have sufficient time to shut the pound gate so  as to keep the mule in before he starts  to the printing oflice: that, after hr:  does start, he may proceed In a brisk  walk .a.nd Is not required to run: that.  after he getH there, time must be al-  Icwed to not the.matter in type, and  lhere must then be a. delay until the  hour when the paper Is printed ,->nd  ready for distribution, and that tho  Bound keeper la not required to get  out an r-xtra," We are 'natisfled th"  learned trial judg<*> did not mean to  require such despatch as thin."  The moral quality of a one-horse  preacher with a divided alleglanee la  described In a late case, thus: "The  evidence tends to show that while I������.

While trying to  servo two masters, he gives his present alloprtance tn tho one he cnn see,  taste, hear ,fccl and smell, puts the  other oft with a little preaching a.nd  the promise of a more convenient season." The difficulty which the preacher  exhiblt'-d in testifying to the truth,  leads the court to moralize as follows:  "When a man only preaches a Utile  and undertakes to deal in the transitory things of this life It is well  always to have -writing with him. as  memory la one nt the worldly things  lhat may not be counted uncertain.

Their  wishes in that respect have been  duly gratified, and it may be said that  a little of it goes a long way. There  may be men who would deliberately  choose rifle fire, pom-poms and shrapnel as their highest form of amusement, but they must be rare. The  pompom is an especially teasing little  beggar. He usually comes in sounds  of five, bursting in. succession, and in  a ,straight line with the line of fire,  so lhat when the flrsl bursts, you  know that in a second or two No. 2  will burst 20 or 30 feet farther on, No.  3 another 20 or 30 feet, and so on. so  that when one explodes 20 or 30 feet  away you have tune to surmise as to  whether the next one will burst  right under your nose or not. It is  decidedly disconcerting, and that our  men, who were subjected to a great  deal of it during their various engagements in which they; took part,  stood the ordeal so well says a great  deal of it during the various en-  om here to. maintain her name and  credit in the ranks of the empire in  arms.

Our boys have looked upon  battle, have been present when death  rodo .upon the blast, and are now  quite ready to let it become a reminiscence and not an experience to  be renewed. To stolidly endure' the  privations that war imposes on those  who taken an active part in it there  needs to be one of two things���������compulsion, as in the case of the' regular  British soldier, or some. active animating Ideal, as in the case of tho  Boers. In tho early stages of the war  the volunteers had their incentive, too.  It was felt that Britain had to show  that sho was able to maintain her position in the world by forco if need  lx.\ But whon Pretoria was reached,  when the author of the war and his  coadjutor in the Free State were fugitive and homeless, this exalting incentive was removed. By no process  of reasoning after that could a man  convince himself that Britain wa3  struggling for her right to exk-it as  an empire.  Unreality About the War  Indeed, those of us who are here  are aware ot a good deal of unreality  aliout thc war. We have not gone at  thc enemy as we would were wo face  to face with one of the great military powers of the world. It has been  a hard task, but the task has not been  in fighting, but in conveying 200,000  men and many thousands of horses  over thousands of leagues of ocean;  in carrying over the same distance*  both food and forage, for the invaded country could not be trusted to  supply oats and hay, and In still  further conveying men. animals and  munitions over a narrow-guage, Btijop-  grade railway a thousand rnller. In  length. Thc fighting part of It hri-  been an eaBy task. A most hiimaiio  deity has presided over this war. Ct  the first stages of It there was a Utile  carnago���������in the attempt to reach Kimberley and Ladysmith. But a*, scon,  or almost as soon, as Lord U-jberts  arrived all this was changed. He took  the measure of the enemy accurately,  and he appears to have decided in  order to accomplish all that was no-,  ccssary. no great killing need take  place. The te3t of a. subordinate's  success has been his casualty list.  Two things the field marshal was sure  of. namely, that the enemy would  would not attack, uud 1li.it a3 soon  as his path of retreat was threatened ho would run.

The rider was almost  obscured completely by dish pans,  lunch baskets anil a choice assortment  of kitchen utensile and other articles,  his nether limbs and his wind-  lassed beard being the only means or  identifying him wilh humanity.

From the same place comes  the further statment that Li Hung  Chang has wired the empress dow-  auer at Hsin Wu requesting the arrest ol Prince Tuan and tho disarmament of the Boxers in order  to give him an opening for ncsotla-  tions with the powers. The Illuminations projected at Shanghai In celebration of the relief of Pekin have  been abandoned lest they should cause  a, native outbreak there.

Only  Men of Great Nerve Will  Now  Attempt Robbery ofthe Railway Trains.  It is held by, railway men and express agents whose lines traverse Arizona, that the efficacy of a law affixing the death penalty to a crime  against property has been proved by  tlic utter decadence o������ the once thriving industry of train robbery. There  was a time when it was a common  mode of making a living. Within a  year of the passage of the law defining it as a capital offense it had  dwindled in Arizona by more than SO  per cent. The men of the road have  gone back to robbing stage coaches,  or take their chances In looting detached express otlices In small towns.  Ninety per cent of them think tou  much of their necks to. run them into  ulmost certain nooses.  Thero has been, however, one curious resull of the law. While it has  enormously decreased the number of  train robberies, it has increased the  percentage of fatalities attendant  upcii llicm. This is due to the fact  that wilh capital punishment hanging  over them, only tho most desperate  kind of criminals have been willing to  engag*: In looting trains at till, and  once in it they were prepared to stop  at nothing. In these days the slightest show of resistance is met with instant death. The robbers say that as  they are going to be hanged anyhow  it caught, they might as well be  hanged for something worth" while.  iSight years ago in Arizona thero  was a train robbery a month, and this  Is a large number when the comparatively few trains are taken into  consideration. Into such a condition  of desuetude has the pursuit descended that is now more than  a year since anything like a decent  hold-up has been accomplished. That  which is true of Arizona is true of  California, in which state tho law-  covers train wrecking as well as train  robbery. It is also true of nearly  all tha states in which train robbery  once flourished. Not all these states  have prescribed the death penalty for  the crime, but the robbers seem to  think they have. The inactivity of  their brethren in the far south western states has discouraged them. In  Texas, for instance, there ,has been no  coup of this kind worthy of the name  for more than a year, yet in Texas,  less than 10'years ago, there were live  distinct bands of robbers operating  simultaneously. Very few of these  men are now alive. Most of them were  killed before there was a chance to  send them to  the penitentiary.  So far as records extend, and they  are    believed    to  be reasonably  com-  just been pardoned.

IT? produced a "marble Bible," which he hau  made when a convict, and laid it on  the desk as an evidence of his good  intentions. The express manager told  him to go home. Jack remarked that  the business did not pay enought to  equalize the punishment it entailed,  went back to Seymour and settled  down to work. He is there now, a  respected, tax-paying citizen.  From this time on train robbery has  been quite common in most of the  western states.  The first successful attempt with  dynamite was made in 1SS0 near Glen-  dale, Mo. Four masked men blew  open an armored car and got $50,000.  Two of them. Hodgopeth and Slye,  were arrested and convicted. So effective was the use of the explosive upon  this occasion that it may be said to  be the parent of all subsequent dynamite robberies. In two years a  slick, of it became as much a part of  the robber's outfil as his pistol.

The  circumstances were such as indicate  the work of a fiend with a mania for  setting fires and he will doubtless go  on with his dastardly work until detected by the vigilance of the citizens  or police.  The days of 1882 are recalled when  for   weeks  fires  of  incendiary  origin  were of nightly and at times hourly  occurrence  and  citizens  were    afraid  almost to sleep at night for fear they  would  be  the   next victims.    A  big  force of special police and a vigilance  committee   of  several   hundred   citizens finally patrolled the streets and  Planes-at~night~"and~the���������_lrebi_g_was"  finally   captured.     The   villain,   who  gave his name as MeArthur. received  a  16-year  sentence,   arid,   ln  a  few  . months   became   entirely     demented,  indicating the fact that his craze for  starting fires  was simply the  mania  of a diseased mind.  ��������� As John Lyons.-a C. P. R. operator,  was going home last    night   shortly  after   midnight he noticed   smoke  issuing from the rear of a large double  frame house., No. 170 aad 173 Jamee  street.    He immediately-rang the adjacent Are alarm and "when .the firemen  arrived   the  house  was  almost  enveloped  In   emoke.    The   Are  was  discovered to be in the basement of  No.  172 and waa extinguished in    a  few minutes by  the chemical before  it had gained much headway. All of  the  occupants  of'  the    house    were  asleep  at  the  time    and   several   of  them were almost smothered by the  smoke.    Th   flre.   had,   been  clearly  started  from  the coal chute    at the  rear of the building aad -from there  spread down to the coal bin and basement ceiling.   o   WESTERN  INVALIDS  plete, the various railways and express companies having kept a careful  account of their losses in this way, as  well as of their numerous encounters,  the first train robbery in the United  States occurred in Indiana. The year  was 1860. One night in September an  express on the Ohio and ItlissisPippi  road slowed up at Browstown. This  place is 00 miles west of Cincinnati.  Two men climbed to the locomotive,  covered the engineer and fireman wilh  revolvers and conversed pleasantly.  Thev were heavily masked. As they  talked their companions uncoupled the  rexpress car and the engineer was  "forced to haul it five miles down the  road. Here the car was entered, the  messenger obliged to unlock the safe,  and $12,000 was taken. The affair  caused a fever of excitement all  through the country, and the railway  people saw at once that a new and  terrible war had begun against them.  For thi3 crime the members of a famous family named Reno were held responsible, but thero was no evidence  of their guilt and they were not mol-  ested.o  A few months later two boys, inspired by the fire of imitation, hold up  a train on the same road and near the  same point. They were taken in hand  by their parents, who delivered them  to the authorities along with the $3,000  they had stolen. No particular punishment was given them. This was the  second train robbery. A year later,  three Reno brothers, Frank, Jesse ana  Sim, along with a relative named Anderson, captured a train on the Indianapolis, Madison and Jeffersonville  road at Seymour, which was their  ihomef"""^hey-_hrew-the-express-mes--  senger out of the car, broke open the  safe and got $135,000, with which they  fled to Canada. In that country, after  a long chase, they were overtaken and  forced to surrender. Long extradition  proceedings followed.  While   these were   in   progress six I  Most people with small gnavaucss  do-not care to tell thc shopkeepers  who are to blame. .They find it. pleus-  aDter to patronize other shopkeepers.  Such a large amount of business  hinges upon such a small amount of  politeness that one wonders haw any  merchant can overlook  the mittcr.  The following remarks by Chas. l-l  Overly, In Ad Sense, hit the nail on  the head aud afford the food for the  thought that a lot of merchants need  to indulge in. ,    ,  "While is the east recently I had  occasion to purchase a typewriter.  My summer arrangements made a  second hand machine at a low price  necessary and I made .a tour of a  dozen typewriter exchanges in search  of a machine at the figure I was  willing to pay���������?10. I. was well aware  that this sum bordered upon the ridiculous, but believed that the makeshift article I required could be had  by diligent hunting.  "Clerks and managers received me  with great cordiality in every place  I visited the first two hours. 'Yes,  yes; a second-hand typewriter; have  dozens of them; about how much do  you wish, to pay?' But at mention of  my limit the smile would fade and  t.he glad hand disappear behind the  owner's back. 'Ah yes; we have  nothing at that price,' would be the  usual reply and the contemptuous  curl of the lip accompanying it checked further operations. Some -treated  the matter humorously���������or attempted  to do so���������while others questioned my  sanity. One individual went so far  as to bring out a battered travesty  upon a typewriter and offer it as an  nxamplo of a $10 article, adding the  gratuitous information that he 'did  not care to waste his time showing  goods to people at that figure.' After  a wearisome tramp 1 found a youngster ���������evidently new to the business���������  who seemed to take a sincere interest in me. He had a similar wreck  at ,my price, which he trotted out and  submitted, frankly telling me that it  was good for nothing and advising  me not to" take it as a gift. Then after  explaining typewriters generally, he  exhibited a machine at.?15 and finally-  sold it to me by sheer candor and  gcod nature. '  "Now thc point is here: Every one  cf the sarcastic dealers stood as good  a chance of making precisely the same  sale. Had they accorded me the same  civility-1 Ehould probably have made  a purchase long before getting around  to the youngster. I do not cite this  example with resentment toward this  line of trade, but as an instance of  a trait of character very common  among salesmen generally. It is a  very hard thing to resist slighting a  customer who promises little profit,  but.no salesman who.knows his business will let a prospective customer  go out. of the store without having  made every effort to effect a sale upon  some terms, be the prospect ever so  unattractive."

Immense Amount of Energy Expended in Holding up Trailing Skirts  New York Sun: "In one afternoon  the women of Greater New York expend sufficient energy to propel thc  combined  navies  of the world!"  The girl in the mortarboard said  this and then looked around her for  the effect.  "Oh, oh," groaned thc two organdie  girls falling limply against each other.  But the girl in the Ladysmith hat  said scornfully. "It's that mortar  board. She can't help doing sums  when she's got it on."  "They do   it."  continued'    thc   girl  with the headpiece, Ignoring interruptions  and   beginning ,to   figure,     "by  means of the trailig dress skirt.     In  Greater New York there are, according to the last estimate 3,000,000 people or 000,000 families.   On the basis  of two adult females to each   family  there   aro   1,200,000 women,   most   of  whom are addicted to the long skirt  habit���������at least ,1,000,000 of them. The  average length of time consumed by  by a woman in a day's    shopping Is  about five hours. Her dress skirt must  be held up continually while    in the  streets   and   stores.     The  weight   of  the ordinary  dress    skirt as held by  tho hand is from two to five pounds,  by   taking   the   minimum   weight   of  two  pounds  which  each  woman  car-  rise continually  in he rhand    during  the   five  hours,    she  expends  a  lifting force of two pounds each instant.  120 pounds a minute, 7.200 pounds an  hour,  and   30,000    during    the      live  hours.   The 1,000,000 long skirted women of New York would, on the same  basis,     exert     a     lifting   power   of  36*000,000,000 pounds during,the day's  shopping tour,   which    is    equal    to  1.090,909   horse  power.    The   average  indicated horse power of a   first class  battleship in  the United States navy  is 12,000.    At this rate the power or  energy  expended   by  the  women    of  New York in a single day in carrying  their dress trains would propel 1,000  battle ships."  And the girl in the mortar board  looked up triumphantly from her  figures. The others looked interested  and the mortar board girl began at  her figures again.  "It takes only 1.022 horse power,"  she went on, "to move a train .of 60  loaded freight cars 25 miles an hour.  With the equivalent of 1.090,909 horse  power expended by the women they  could move 1.067 such trains. Applied j  to the ordinary tasks of a household. |  such as sweeping, washing dishes,  attending babies, etc., this enormous  forco now wasted would solve the  household problem lu a jiffy and leave  muscles to spare. It would sweep  1.800,000.000 rooms, allowing 20 pounds  of energy to each room. It would  wash 30,000,000,000 dishes, giving a  pound to each. dish. And it would  carry 2,400,000,000 babies, each weighing 15 pounds.  By investigating it appears that  the vast majority of New York women feel themselves simply unable to  attend to their simple household affairs be"!'ii = p. t'i?.* an-. r,ot trong  enough. In the. matter of dress skirts  they are feminine Herculeses."  Then the mortar board girl threw  down her pencil.  "Dear me, I didn't know we were  working at it so hard. - We'll never  wear .the horrid things again," declared the organdie girl.  "Never mind. They are going out  this season anyhow," murmured the  Ladysmith   girl."   o   T   Sutherland,   Stayner  Ellas Rodgers  R.

They proposed to go into the  business thoroughly, and   on   a large  scale.      Their .plans were perfected to  the extent of   selecting   their   hiding  places and means,of escape, when they  were betrayed by an outside   confederate, who waa to share in the plunder, though he had not been asked to  do any of the work.     They stopped a  train  and found    themselves face to  face with a resolute force of    armed  deputies.     They were captured without trouble    and locked up.     At daybreak   next   morning   100   citizens   of  Seymour  took them  from   their cells  and hanged them  in    a tree ' a mile  west of  the  town.      Soon  after  this  lynching the three 'Renos and Anderson were brought back from  Canada.  They were lodged ia Jail at New Albany, Ind., for safe keeping, the temper of the  Seymour people making it  unsafe for, train     robbers  in     their  neighborhood.      Later  events  Bhowed  that the precautions were useless. The  trouble with New Albany was that it  was not far enough away.   A lynching  party which had been formed at Seymour for the reception   of  the Renos  went to New Albany 1,000 strong, battered down the   Jail    door, and made  their way to the cells occupied by the  men.     Here followed a long and desperate fight.     The cells were so small  that not many of the mob  could get  at tlie prisoners,    and    they   did not  want to shoot them. The unarmed but  undaunted ruffians    fought    with    all  their strength and it was half an hour  before,  battered from    head  to    heels  and covered    with  blood,    they    were  dragged out and hanged.  There waa another Reno brother  named Jack, who had been concerned  in their last robbery. He was not  captured at the time the four ran  away to Canada, but was taken afterwards ancl sentenced to a term in the  penitentiary. One day, years after the  lynching, he walked into the Chicago  oflice of the Adams Express company,  naked for the manager, and announced that he was Jack Reno, the lust of  the gang,  tjaylnp,  also,   that    he  had  marched from the line of railway,'  but gained the-medals. Yet by ,a  perverison of justice the medals were  given to only a handful of the. Policemen who did valuable scouting duty,  who made forced marches from Swift  Current to Battleford. Men who passed from Fort Pitt through "the en  emy's country to Battleford to communicate with General Mlddleton, yet  did not see actual fighting were discriminated against on the recommendation of General Middleton.  The story is a very old one now and  the quarrel between General Middle-  ton and Colonel Irvine, then commissioner of pollec, may have been at the  root of the trouble, but the proceduro  is one which if adapted in South  Africa today would brine a storm  about the British eovernment's head  which it would never hear the la6t of.
