Health In Cities.
Municipal responsibility for the
health of the people is a well estab
lished proposition. But the cities hold
to the theory and, despite all that la
actually done, disregard the fact In
many ways. There may bo some
clash of departments, a case of over
lapping or disputed Jurisdiction, and
insanitary conditions are allowed that
aro more detrimental to public health
than all the efforts that are made to
obviate disease are productive of
beneficial results. Often the case Is
one of pure neglect, Ignorance or In
difference. Only recently havo tha
school authorities In American cities
undertaken to lessen disease at Its
source among the children of tho
schools. Yet not half has been done
that might be done; indeed, not a
fraction. Baltimore American.

concrete, Just comploted at a cost o
more than $100,000, in a gulch at ono

gulch happened to be Just the right
shape for the stadium, so but little
excavation was required. The struc
ture Is shaped like a horseshoe, with
tho open end overlooking Commence
ment Bay. It will seat 25,000 people,

baseball, football, track and field
events, nnd will also bo used for out

Silk petticoats, starched wearables
and creaking shoes should be avoided
by tho attendant in an invalid's
room. Whispering Is intensely irri
tating to a sick person, who naturally
concludes that his symptoms are so
had that they havo to bo discussed
in nn undertone. Conversation be
tween tho nurso and visitors should
bo in a low tono of voice, but quite
distinct; If there Is anything to be
said that tho Invalid must not hear,
it would better bo said In the hall,
entirely out of his sight, earshot and
imagination. A small tablo in tho
hall, outside the sick room, will bo
appreciated by the nurso and by who
ever has to deliver and call for tho
invalid's food tray. Detroit News-Tribune.
Tho Shakespeare-Bacon Controversy.
Tho Shnkespeare-Bacon controver
sy is still on the carpet No, it has
by no means boen settled that Bacon
wroto tho Shakespearean plays. It
cannot even be said that a strong
presumption of the Baconian author
ship hns been established. The writ
ings of Donnelly and othors on that
side show a great deal of Ingenuity,
and prove that they havo given to the
subject a vast amount of patient re
search; but npart from that their
work counts for nothing. It has not
been proven that Shakespeare did not
write tho plays bearing his name, nnd
until that is dono tho "Bard of Avon"
remains In possession of tho honor of
Sir Walter Scott's Debts.
You nro wrong In thinking that Sir
Walter cleared tho slate before his
death. Tho Ballantyno failure threw
upon Scott the responsibility for
130,000 poundB, or $050,000, and tho
grand old man immediately sot about
tho mighty task of paying it, but, not
withstanding tho most heroic efforts
on his part, ho nover succeeded in
paying it all. Ho did the best he
could but he had to depend solely
upon his writings, and tho task was
moro than mortal man could accom
plish. As his powers failed he bo
came possessed of tho Idea that nil
bis debts were paid and that ho was
a freo man; and in this belief he hap
pily remained till his death.

schooner. A broken rope dangling
from this end hit tho captain on tho

Tho speed of the vessol dragged him
along besldo her. Presently the ves
sel gave a tremendous lurch, and her
bulwarks went under water, whon a
gigantic wave tossed tho captain
aboard again. His presonce gave tho
man nt tho wheel n terrible shock,
for he thought the captnln had been
drowned. They finally weathered tho
storm and brought the schooner and
her cargo safely to port.
It Is thought that this Is the only
instance of record of a man having
been washed overboard and then
washed back again.

The origin of the word "bull," as
tho definition of a confused utterance,

comes from the French boule
"fraud"; and others that it is de
