PITTSBURG, FRIDAY, KOV. 1, 18S9.
Halloween has not much chance in the
days of natural gas, electricity and general
education. The supernatural is rather at a
discount even with the youngsters of this
generation. There is not so much looking
under the bed, and into dark cupboards, for
the man who is seldom or never there, and
ghosts are not so plentiful as they used to
be even in graveyards and empty houses.
And Halloween without the eerie associa
tions it once possessed is dropping into de
cay. Small boys contrive to make the night
horrible with horns. They carry off the
gates of the unwary, and in some places
make the night a wintry edition of the
Fourth of July with fire crackers. Bat the
romance of the evening lingers in but a few
Barns would not know our Halloween,
and the precious girls very likely would
take kindly enough to a revival of the old
superstitions of which the Scotch poet wrote
no vividly. For the truth is that if this
New "World has forgotten a good deal that
the Old taught it the difficulty of getting
husbands stands before the maidens of to
day as large and ugly as it ever did.
Halloween with its mirthful nostrums for
unmarried lasses might have a full welcome
if the latter could be persuaded that a sav
ing power lay in popping nuts upon the
grate, or in eating an apple before the look
"We are so practical nowadays. To win
hearty effort from the youngest and lustiest
the matter in hand must have some definite
end in view. Tbe gentry in knickerbockers
and kilts and the ladies in short frocks
want to know the reason why tor everything.
Tbe brownies charm the babes in tbe pages
of SL Nicholas, bnt where is the American
infant who believes the fairies tread the
rings upon the grass, drink dew from flower
bells and feast on butterflies' wings and
rose leaves, with a toadstool for a banquet
table? That's why the quaint old fables of
Halloween have lost their hold upon us.
GET READY FOR WINTER.
This is a seasonable time to give the streets
in the older wards of the city a general
cleaning up, and to push the work on those
which are being built in the suburban
quarters. Soon the frosts of winter will be
setting their seal on the urban landscape.
So far, the enormous operations in the build
ing Of houses, of street car tracks, of sewers,
and of gas lines have made it next to im
possible to keep the highways and the bye
ways clean or neat Bnt the imperative con
siderations of health and comfort call for all
possible expedition now on the part of con
tractors and of the highway department
That Baltimore man who lately volun
teered a severe criticism on Pittsburg for its
uncouth exterior, did not take into account
the fact that this'city has for several years
jjast been virtually in process of reconstruc

and neatness possible even under those con
ditions; and with winter coming on the
authorities should reach out for it right
The persistent survival of class distinc
tions has just had a marked illustration in a
New Jersey manufacturing town. The
elite dancing class was recently organized
there; and the "elite" are discovered in the
progress of the story to consist of the clerks,
male and female, of the retail stores of the
town. In order to keep the select circle
sacred from the intrusion of the vulgar herd,
a rule was adopted that no factory girl
should be allowed to join. But the New
Jersey factory girl is a power In the land,
and having heard of the rule she proceeded
to make things lively for the elite. She ad
vertised a boycott for the stores in which
the aristocratic members of the dancing class
sold drygoods and notions, and the conse
quence is that some of the exclusive set
have lost their situations through the desire
of the store-keepers to keep the trade of the
The whole thing sounds rather ridiculous,
but is it any more so than the other class
distinction of which we hear so much?
Have not the shop girls as good a founda-
"T, tion for drawing the line between them-

have grandfathers have for ruling out those
whose grand-paternal relations are obscure?
Why shall not the Clara Vere de Veres of

""from the rotnrier factory girl, as strictly as
the lordly daughter of petroleum and bon-

of the land? We protest that the shop
&& girls have as good a right to be exclusive
a as anyone else; reserving of course an
, equal right of the factory girl to raise a
w tow about it
Nevertheless we can hardly approve ot
the importation of the boycott into the
$ quarrel. Alio wrauuui wciory gins snouia
have contented themselves with turning up
their noses at their haughty rivals and start

should eclipse the exclusive shop girls' in
COOLEY S PYRAMID.
We do not proiess to understand why
Minneapolis did not put in a claim for the
World's Fair of 1892. A splendid chance
to exalt herself has been lost to the modest
Tival of St. PauL Bnt George W. Cooley,
'formerly City Engineer of Minneapolis, has
come to the rescue of that place with a little

The law which forbids the levying of as
sessments for political purposes upon offi
cials in the Departments of the Federal
Government is not at all ambiguous. It
says plainly that such assessments are
illegal, and that those who levy them are
liable to certain penalties and pains. Civil
Service Commissioner Theodore Boosevelt
stated yesterday equally plainly that he and
his brethren on the commission intended to
enforce the law without fear or favor. With
Mr. Boosevelt's political career before us we
should have been surprised and disappointed
if he had been ambiguous or hesitating upon
this question. His duty is plain; we are
glad, but not astonished that he means to do
The agents of Mahone, 'the Old Dominion
Republican League, do not scruple to
openly assert their contempt for the law.
They say that they have made the assess

to-day. Nobody can accuse them of evad
ing the issue, or shirking the responsibility.
On the other hand the Civil Service Com

The Dispatch believes the provisions
of the law which covers this offending to
be for the best interests of the Bepublic in
the main. The outrage upon it in this in
stance is bold and unblushing. The men
who have planned and propose to perpetrate
it seem to invite a conflict in the courts.
The commission is willing to accommodate
them, and we shall look for the outcome
with great interest The law of the land is
in danger if a portion of it can be so
brazenly defied with impunity.
THE WAY OF HEALTH.
Onr fair and enterprising cotemporary,
Miss Nellie Bly, has been trying hard to
catch some New York doctors tripping.
Sbe consulted seven of them with a view to
curing the headaches from which she
suffered. The doctors ascribed the head
ache to different causes, and gave her pre
scriptions which resembled each other radi
cally. Of course Nelly Bly's object was to
show how doctois disagree. Her amusing
article, however, demonstrates a great deal
more emohaticallv the extravagant charac
ter of what the public expects from doctors. 1
As a general rule a man and still more a
woman tells as little as possible to the
doctor. The patient, from all sorts of
reasons, is averse to giving the doctor a full
and absolutely truthful account of his life,
his habits and indulgences. He may be
voluble enough as to symptoms, but he
usually refuses to throw light upon
the anterior data which would aid the
physician amazingly in his diagnosis. In
fact the public endows the doctor with
miraculous and supernatural powers and
Quarrels with him because his opera
tions are entirely within human limits.
There are doctors who encourage their pa
tients in attributing a sort of magic art to
their prescriptions. Such practitioners are
happily few in number.
The doctor onght to be the father con
fessor as well as the physician ot his flock.
Everyone who expects to reap real and
lasting benefit from his physician's minis
trations must trust him implicitly and
afford him every facility to know his, the
patient's, bodily life. Doctors would be far
more successful, and death would not dance
so often if this simple rule of perfect confi
dence between doctor and patient were ob
served. But after all to a very great extent in life
the advice given by an anonymous writer
three hundred years ago is a good Regimen
Use three physicians:
Still first Dr. Quiet,
Next Dr. Merryman,
And Dr. Diet
C0TOTESY FOB C0NBUCT0H3.
The suggestion is not altogether a new
one, but would it not be an excellent thing
to set up a school for the training of street
car conductors in good manners? Such a
school would save the public from number
less annoyances arising from the rudeness of
conductors, and the street car companies
from many of the complaints and civil suits
to which they are now subjected. Of course
the companies and not the public shonld es
tablish the school. Every applicant for the
position of conductor should be required to
attend the school for a certain time. The
course need not be a long one, for if a man
is fit to be a conductor he will acquire a suf
ficiency of good manners in a short time, and
if he requires great schooling in this direc
tion be is not likely to make a good conduc
tor. The curriculum of the school should be
planned rather with a view to informing
the conductor of what he should not than
what he should do in his official capacity.
It should teach him thatlvben he makes a
mistake in giving change to a passenger he
should not abuse the latter. It Bhoul
make clear to him that the passenger is the
patron of the vehicle, and not the slave of
the conductor. Treading on the feet or the
feelings of passengers should be deprecated,
while a cheerful disposition in the con
ductor to stop tbe car whenever the public
demands it should be encouraged. Again,
it would be well to indicate to the scholars
that courtesy to women, desirable as it is, is
not their whole duty so long as men con
tinue to travel on street cars. The man
who pays his fare deserves some considera
tion. If the conductors reply that the passen
gers also would be the better for lessons in
good manners, we are not inclined to gain
say them. Not enough attention is paid to
the cultivation of common courtesy any
where. Still, if conductors were, invariably
courteous, we are convinced that they would
meet with much better treatment from the
v " . . . .ft
public In fact, the good manners ot the
conductors would prove' contagious.

The. Latest Lay of a Folding Bed The

The folding bed has figured In countless
tunny events. Too latest story about It comes
One day last week one of the leading furni
ture houses of this city sold a large folding
bed to a lady in Allegheny. A condition of the
sale was that the furniture dealer should set
the bed up In the purchaser's house. The bed
was put on a wagon and two men went along as
escort. Arrived at the house the bed was
taken out and conducted, up the steps to the
door. There came the first hitch, the bed was
too big to make an entrance anyhow. After
some talk the two men returned to Pittsburg
and procured another assistant and a. block and
tackle. With these things they returned.

story and, take it in at the window. All these
maneuvers bad occupied abont four hours, but
with unabated ardor the men palled the bed
up to the second story.
The window proved an Inch or two too small
to admit the bed.
The remarks about that bed at that crisis
were very unkind and unparliamentary. There
Was no use for it however; down the bed came
to the sidewalk again. The perseverance ot
those workmen was prodigious. The; took ont

Its suburban stations comfortable and comely,
the Fort Wayne Railroad has given Dixmont a
handsome structure and is now adding a bridge
over the tracks for the passengers.
There Is no doubt that a bridge over tracks is
a good thing, but it would be better If tbe pub
lic could be persuaded to use it There has
been a picturesque bridge at Sewickley station
for two years or more, bnt it is doubtful if E0
people make use of it in the course of a year.
It stands to the public as a vantage point from
which to survey the exquisite scenery of tbe
valley, and to the railroad company as a bar to
suits for damages. The public is not forced to,
use the bridge, for an open avenue across the
tracks is conveniently provided lor the passen
gers, who almost Invariably avail themselves of
Probably the public will never use a railroad
bridge where they have to mount stairs or
otherwise inconvenience themselves to reach
it The railroad in America inspires neither
the terror nor tbe respect it does in England
or European countries, where to walk upon a
railroad track is to commit a trespass punish
able with tine or imprisonment The result of
this national carelessness is seen In the formid
able list of those who are killed on tbe tracks.
Still a bridge improves the appearance of a
station, and tbe relatives of the man who is
killed, as be crosses the ties beneath it have
the satisfaction of knowing that they aro
spared the trouble of suing the railroad.
IT is not enough for some of tbe gallant para

Whatever tbe condition of Miss Anderson's
health may be, and of late there have not been
wanting authoritative reports ot her improve

that she is still at her prime, as far as mere
years are concerned. She was born in Sacra

with refreshing directness, in the little parlor
of her home in Cranberry street "I have put

this step for notoriety or for lack of means.
My husband, my children and my allowance

"I most certainly would appoint women to
office, not simply because they are women or
because many of the positions are sinecures,
but because Itblnk women are, as a rule, more
conscientious, thorough and faithful in the dis
charge of duty than men. There is no muni

that women may be employed as InsDectresses
of factories and as police matrons, and I intend
to devote m? entire salary to Divine the police
matrons, for whose appointing there has been
a law passed, but for whose salaries no pro
vision has been made. I do not need tbe salary,
for my husband willontinne to support me, as
he always has done. I would have halt tbe
members of the School Board women, for more
than half the children and teachers in tbe pub
lic schools are females. I would have the Park
Commissioners men and women of equal num

in arrangement and decoratlou quite as artistic
as man's, and I would also divide the positions
on tbe Board of Public Works between men
and women, for woman's judgment as to the
exigencies of the city is as sound and practical
as that of men."

In conclusion he presented the following reso
lutions of the committee, which were adopted

Hartford, Conn., October iSL The good
people of Huddom Neck are delighted with
the conviction of the roughs whorecently broke
up a prayer meeting. About a week ago tbe
Bev. John Scott, pastor of tbe Congregational
chnrch, led a prayer meeting iu the district
schoolhause. Before the first prayer ended,
the odor of a skunk filled every nook and
crevice and corner of tbe little building. The
minister gave out a hymn; but the voices of the
congregation stuck, as it were, in their throats.
The skunk finally trinmnbed, and the meet
ing adjourned to the parsonage. Mr. Scott
bad just begun a discourse, when there was a
disturbance outside, the meeting adjourned,
and the male members went outside. They
found a gang of roughs, and a row began, in
which the chnrch members 'smote the Philis
tines hip and thigh. Two of the roughs were
arrested and fined.
