Saturday Evening Pokt.
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 -
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
' 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.
