Thoy Rnngo from Speedy Dlvorcos and Great Feato of Travel to Un precedented Financial Transactions and Varied Forms of Prosperity. I'roni the Nov.' York Sun, The first year ot the twentieth cen tury, A, V. W01, saw many now records established In odd linos ot human ac tivity, while It left 11 pathway strewn with old records broken. To begin at the beginning: On New A'ear's day there were thirty deaths from Violent causes In various parts of Kentucky. This record set a new high slaughter mark even In that state of feuds where firearms and moonshine whiskey, freely used on holidays, constitute a double tnenaco to human life. Kentucky, by the way, eclipsed nil former records In another direction. On January 29 a Kentucky firm sold to a Chicago house S.fiOO barrels of whiskey, which Is the largest single transaction In good old red liquor over known. On this whiskey the United States govern ment received $300,000 In revenue tax; tho total amount of cash Involved In the deal was about $"".0,000; tho quan tity or spirits was sutllclent to fill 3, 110,000 pint bottles; retailed at "1", cents a pint the sum rcnllssed would be $2, CSO.OOO. There seems to bo no trust worthy way to estimate this total num ber of jags contained In all this whis key, or its fecundity In snakes. . AfARIUAGE AND DIA'ORCE. The matrimonial mart usually has big things to show In a year. All nuptial speed records were smashed on Sun day, August 10, at St. Joseph, Allcli. , Chicago's Orolna Oreen, when twenty- seven couples from Chicago were deftly spliced in one hour and three-quarters, each couple thus having less than five minutes to go through tho mill. The minister who In 1f0l claliped tho record with reference to the grand total of marriages and funerals, connected with a long minister's life, Is the Rev. J. M. Hatighey. ot Allison City, a little town thirty miles south of Pokln, III. During bis career as a preacher, a period of some forty years, he has mar ried 1,357 couples and conducted 1.C0O funerals. Turning to the divorce side of matri mony a side peculiarly rich In speed records one naturally would look to Chicago, Oklahoma or the Dakotas for winners. The Chicago speedy-divorce calendar for tho year found its stellar performance In tho case of Airs. f!. Krueger. It took this lady u trifle less than ten minutes to convince Judge Dunne that she ought to be cut loose from her husband, Henry AVIlllain Krueger, a saloonkeeper of the Windy City. At 9.30 a. 111., August 2S, she filed her bill in the Circuit court charging that Henry, whom she had wedded in the preceding April, was 11 cruel spouse. At 9.40 a. 111., the decree bad been signed by the judge, awarding freedom to the bride and tnxing the recreant Henry $l,iiOO alimony. The highest speed achievement in former cases in any part of the United States was twenty minutes for the legal separation of a San Francisco couple, In 1900. FEATS IN TRAA'EL. Refeiing to feats in travel, 11 cer tainly was a great year forjftbo au tomobile. Even In those days of chronic record-breaking such a per formance as that of Henri Founder, the French chauffeur, who drove a heavy French racing machine a mile in Si" 1-3 seconds on the Coney Island boulevard. In November, was most noteworthy. The long-distance record for horse less vehicles was broken by Arthur J. Eddy of Chicago, a former president of the Automobile club of that city. In sixty days, from August 1, to Septem ber 30, he covered 2,900 miles, traveling through Allchlgan, Indiana. Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Alassaobusotts and purt of Canada. He averaged about 100 miles a day and at times maintained a sliced 06 forty miles nn hour. AVonders Incident to travel were pro claimed In other classes; for example, the unchallenged record ot Charles llellaniy, a Burlington railroad firemen, who In eleven years of faithful ser vice traveled G0CS40 miles and shov elled 32,501 tons ot coal on tho way. He never lost a trip or' received a scratch through accident. Railroad men say that It Is a case of physical endurance never equalled. An engine of the Great Northern Railway lu England, which was built In 1870, completed In August an aggre gate of 4,000,000 miles, breaking the English record in this respect. The speediest long-distance delivery of mall ever accomplished lu the world was that of the consignment which left Sydney. Australia, Oct. 15, for London, England, by tho American route, A distance of lj,2r, miles was covered in thirty-one days, a saving of four days over the Sue?. Canal route. Around tho world In 0 days 13 hours and 30 minutes Is the now globo-gtnl-Ing record, which was completed Inst July by Charles C. Fltr.inorrls. a Chi cago high school boy. This beat the best previous fast circuit of tho world by several days, FEATS OF APPETITE. The champion gormand of the year was Elmer Pfolfer, an Areola, 111., youth with an elastic stomach a chap that Carlylo probably would bavo called u patent digester who 0110 hun gry day In February devoured twenty four fat ham sandwiches lu exactly forty-eight minutes, thereby winning 11 wagor, with side bets of ?7.'i and cs tabllshlng a record which undoubted ly was it world beater. Harry S. Uluek of Chicago and New York, recently mado tho largest cup science contribution to Undo Sam known In the history of tho govern ment.

The sum was $7,0S2,B83.I9. No other ship lu the world's history has over been so richly laden, Another record Is noted In the statement that at the opening of business on July 31 the United States treasury had In Its possession the largest fund of gold held by. uny nation lu the world and the greatest ever owned by this govern ment, the amount being $354,351,279.

FromhlH 102 acres be had 1,800 bushels, a yield of a little over seventeen bushels to the acre. It cost hlin $17 an acre to -raise, sort, shell and pay ground rent. The winter wheat yield of Knnsasfor 1P01 was 00,045,514 bushels, valued at $G0,479,5I0, and breaking the preceding year's record by 13,450,070 bushels. These two were the largest wheat crops over grown by any state. The llrst year of the new century, was an all-around record breaker for the farmers of the United States. The on. tire year's surplus of the products ot Held and farm sold abroad amounted tp no less than $500,000,000. , i Charles M. Schwab; president of the United States Steel corporation.

It exceeded the cotton lp dustry In. 1000 by more than $100,000,000 and ror.1901 will exceed it by iiiore than $250,000,000. Reports of pig Iron manufacturers covering production in October show that the month was a record breaker, the output reaching the great total of 1,100,000 tons.

The distribution of wages on Dec. 15, cover ing three weeks, aggregated $500,000, tlio biggest pay day ever known at this plant. Hlti DAY IN CATTLE. Imagine, if you can, a live stock train 10 miles long numbering 2,397 cars and containing ."51,785 head of cattle, ;I8,45G hogs and 22,231 sheep, and you will have some Idea or the record breaking dny for receipts at the Union Slock Yards, Chicago, on AVednesdny, July 24, 1901. It was tho biggest day ever known In the history of this big llvo stock mart. Tho drought in the Middle and AVest ern states caused this unprecedented rush of stock to the market. The total value of Hie day's receipts was over $500,000. The cattle alone consolidated In one mammoth animal would have made a steer seven times as high as the Masonic temple, or hi a sluglo llln would have reached trom Chicago to Milwaukee. This herd weighed about 30,000,000 pounds on the hoof, and furnished beef caters with about 20,000,000 poitndu of meat. Tho value of cattle shipments for that entire week wan estimated nt over $1,000,000. Tho world's sheep ret ortl was smashed at these yards on Monday, Aug. 5, when 32,153 head wero received.
