The open-air number of The Saturday Eve ning Post, of PhihVlclphia, which will be out April, 24, will be one of the most notiable special numbers of the year. In the opening article, The Serene Duck Hunter, ex-President Cleve land writes about his favorite sjwrt with genial humor and laugh-compelling frankness. Wil liam Marconi, the inventor of the most successful system of wireless telegraph, tells, over his own signature, of the experiments which lead up to the marvelous results that he has achieved. In Talcs of the Diamond President James A. Hart, of the Chicogo, recalls some good stories af famous ball players, games and enthusiasts. This is the first of two papers. Every sports man will read with pleasure Arthur E. Mc Farlane's spirited story entitled The Old Feller's Fishin'. Among the other strong features in this number is a new Letter from the Self-Made Merchant to His Son, the second part of Paul Latzke's intensely interesting paper on James J. Hill's School for Uailroad Presidents, a new in stallment of Conjuror! House, and the regular biweekly Washington letter by a ConrwiiMa'a Wifi Amorg the shorter contribationa are Mr. F. A. Warner's practical paper on Farming as a business, Mr. Forrest Criswy's timely sketch of ttoveroor Van Sunt, of Minnesota, an exquisite poem by Mr. Bliss Carman, and the usual pop ular departments, . . 1 The Aston are erecting a hotel of teel - and granite twenty stories high at the corner of Fifth avenue and Fifty-fifth street, New York... The walls havx already reached - within a story of the roof. The structure stands upon the crest of the avenue and it is surrounded by the three and four story palaces of the many New York millionaires. A block of.gran'te weighing eight hundred pounds slipped from its place a few days ago and fell from the sixteenth story In the roof of an adjoining house owned by Mr. James Everard, the millionaire brewer, crashing in through a three thousand dollar skylight and narrowly missed crushing some of the imatesV As one approaches this imposing addition to New York's skyscrapers the wonder ia that the spindle shank aOair itself does not sag, sway and tumble over. The architects of New York will keep at the Tower of Babel business until some thing will happen that will make the world sit up. . : All hail to Albert Santos-Dumont! The cel ebrated little aerial navigator is in New York as as chipper as a lark in an April Irish sky, and as confident of his ability to sail through the con trol cloud and storm as the optimistic John L. Sullivan was in his heyday .to pulverize any and all opponents. M. Santo-Dumont is one of the brands of men that the whole wide world should love and honor as its prince, when there days are as dead blades in the aftermath of Time, the great soul and genius of this stripling will stand a glorious monument to this age in the solemn cemetery of the ages. He is to rise above our skyscrapers, sail over the city and under the Brooklyn Bridge. Every American should un bar the portals of his heart so - that this distin guished visitor can also sail in there. IZka Cbie, the unfortunate missionary who TC3 CraJ and kept four months by Bulgarian Uganda untill her American friends paid the sum of nrty-five thousand dollars for her ran som, was A passenger on the "Dcutchland" wi'-h IL Santos-Dumont. Miss Stone ' will de liver a aeries of lectures throughout the coun try, the ptoceeds from which, it is understood, will be used to pay back the money so generously contributed by her friends for her ransom. It was a savage, inhuman plot that those brigands perpetrated upon an iu offensive American lady, and the wonder is that this government does not make some show of holding the Turkish govern ment responsible for the outrage. Despite her bornbo experience, Miss Stone looks the picture of health. She is plump- and rosy. No doubt her lectures will be largely attended. She was met on the pier by many of her , friends 'and co workers,, ''"v. - . : J - ,4-.- The daily papers are, very properly, ' calling the attention of the country to the rather ' shady methods of the Beef Trust The prices have ad vanced so that many of the local retailers are un able to continue in business, and hundreds of thousands of the poor find that fresh meat is be coming gradually a luxury. Sirloin steak that ! was only a short time since retailed in the cities at seven cents a pound cannot be secured for less than twenty-three cents. No doubt the men in U Beef Trust who are now cornering the mar ket, and who are depriving the poor of the coun try of their natural food, will Ins found in five or ten years more retiring from business and won dering how they can dispose of their millions in deeds of public charity. They will no doubt be founding new hospitals for the very people whose health their avarice is now doing much to impair. - The manner in which the avarage A merican millionaire acquires his millions takes all the glory away from his subsequent deeds of Charity indeed it is much like the rich man who lets his own relative first starve to ' death and then raises a magnificent monument over bis dust for the sake of the family pride. A Laaaaeruaa Plea. ' The fact that lumbermen are sup posed to be engaged in the work of rapidly denuding ie pine f-est gives unusual In terest to the address of President Lippincott, of the National Lumber Dealers' association at the annual convention of the association in Chi cago. He urged radical legislative measures for the preservation of the forests, reports the Chicago Record Herald, and declared that unless a change can be brought about the price of lumber will continue to rise each year on account of a scarcity of pine. The plea for legislation to preserve the forests from the rapid destruction that is now going on is timely and should have the solid sup port of the great lumber Interests of the country. At the present rate of cutting the forest land of the United States cannot long meet the enor mous demand that ia made upon it. Recent statistic show that by far the greater part of the white pine baa already been cut. Ia many sec tions the destructive work of the ax hat been supplemented by forest fires, the average annual leas from the latter being estimated at not lesa than $20,000,000. Notwithstanding the appointment of state forest commis sions in many states to study the question of forest preservation and to devise means for replenishing the enormous waste, the denudation of the forest landa goes on steadily year after year. And ao it ia only a ques tion of time when all these lands will be entirely stripped and there will be few forest reservation! of any value or extent outside of the reser vation established by act of con gress. Under this act SO reserves nave been proclaimed: comprising a total area of 25,883,840 acres. W. T. Gclssinger, Long Island City, X. Y., a traveling shoe salesman, has dem- IT..1. .H...0Mtrtd 0 satlsf actioa of him- self and a doubt ing salesman of foreign extraction that the honesty and efficiency of Uncle Sam's mail system is ahead of anything on earth. Geissinger and another trav eler at a Uraddock (r.) hotel disput ed about the honesty of Uncle Sam's postal servants.' Geissinger said that he would prove that he could send mon ey through the mails in the most open manner, nnd which would rench it s des tination. He took a silver dollar, glued a piece of stiff white paper on one side of it, wrote the address to his young est daughter, walked over to the post office and placed a one-cent stamp on the open face of the coin, and offered the article to Assistant Postmaster John S. Lovers as "merchandise." A few days later Mr. Geissinger received a letter from his daughter, thanking him for the dollar. However, we may add that this open method of sending money through the mail is hardly to be commended.u. . . .u A very strong and commendable cru sade is being made at thia time against profanity.- In many citiea and towns, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, there have been organizations effected to do away with this careless and sin ful habit. The evil is widespread and has not been confined to one class of persons, and it is high time that pure speech be the rule among all classes, and that God's name be honored and hallowed; that it be held as sacred and more so than that of mother or father, for God not only demands It, but He is entitled to our most heartfelt grati tude and reverence. Slang is too prev alent in conversation and in song. Even the pulpit ia not altogether free from its use. Other agencies help to spread phrases and words are not of the choicest and best character. No matter how highly developed modern society becomes emergencies are constantly arising when a revis ion to primitive methods ia necee aary. A big ahip that lost her propel ler in mid ocean had to be towed into port, owing to the lack of sails, and recently in Washington it wm necessary to hitch horses to the treet cars in some limited sections where the electric conduits were sub merged. Marconi's, system of teleg raphy will be a. wonderful assistance la communication, bat, the Washing ton Star suggests, it will be Just as well to keep a few 'oi the old wire up for a few years at1 least, ao as to provide against accideafa. Two lawyers began to as soaa pretty sharp language toward each other la a court ia Charleston, ft. C, kt were quickly brought to book by Magistrate Msmminger, who admon ished them and told them that H "was not the United States senate in which the case was being tried." So It ap pears that, the bad example of the state's senators is not to be followed nnrebuked at home.
