A PAXGEKOUS CROSSING.
The road leading to the coal pockets which passes over the different
railroad tracks, Is very dangerous. Wednesday afternoon the freight was
being switched. The engine had gone down the line and a short distance
behind it followed a freight car, which was unobserved by the driver of
the Gurney Elevator team. The horses had partly crossed the track when
the freight car was 'fast approaching them. The driver could not ad
vance and was compelled to back the team off the track. It was a close
call. 'Had there not been a brakeman upon the car in all probability the
men and horses would have been killed. This is a dangerous crossing
at all times and the company ought to provide In some manner, either by
gates or a watchman, for the protection of the many teams and drivers
who dally pass over this crossing.
HOW SUGAR HAS JUMPED IN ONE MONTH.
One of the most remarkable commercial incidents in the present
sky-rocket market for raw sugar was developed when a vessel laden with
sugar from Java arrived in Philadelphia to establish the fact that, in its
voyage of little more than a month, the price of the commodity had ad
vanced to an extent almost equal to the duties on the cargo, which were
The Philadelphia consignees, in other words, found that the rise in
the sugar market while the cargo was on the sea had in effect nearly paid
the duties and that they stood financially in about tie same position they
would have bean if they had received the sugar duty free.
It was the British steamer Kwarra which brought G000 tons of Java
sugar to Philadelphia. When the Kwarra sailed from Java on August 1
the ruling market price for Java sugar was 14 shillings G pence for 112
pounds. Upon her arrival here the market quotation for 112 pounds of
Java sugar had advanced four shilling to 18 shillings C pence. Mathe
maticians of the Commercial Exchange quickly figured that the enhanced
value of the sugar ergo during the voyage represented In our money within
a few thousand dollars of the $150,000 to be paid in duties at th Custom
We suppose that the owners are sorry now they didn't make a longer
voyage, because If the present increase In price keeps up they could prob
ably have bought tnother steamer out of the proceeds.
V THE STATE HOSPITAL. I
Scranton Is well favored in the matter of hospitals, without which it
would be seriously embarrassed. In a community such as it is, where
bo many people are engaged in occupations considered hazardous, hospl-
tals are especially needed, particularly one controlled by the State, which
is in duty bound to care for the homeless or for those unable to provide
for themselves, especially in emergency cases.
The work of providing maintenance for the hospitals of Scranton
furnishes one of the brightest and most Interesting pages in the city's
history. Naturally, the State hospital takes first place among these in
stitutions because of its superior advantages.
What the State hospital is doing for the community was shown at the
annual meeting held there on Tuesday when the Hon. E. B. Hardenbergh
of Honesdale was elected President of the Board of Trustees. The year
just ended has been the bmsiest in its history. Two thousand, three hun
dred and seven patients have been admitted. An aggregate of 43,178
days were spent In the hospital by in-patients. In addition to all these,
3,004 dispensary cases were treated during the year and 5.49G dispensary
visits were made. The average number of patients In the hospital each
day in the year was 114. The total expenditures for the year were ?73,
514. G5. .
These figures are eloquent and speak for themselves. What our
needs require is even more liberal treatment by the state In the way of
appropriations.' Private charity Is already taxed to the straining point In
caring for other institutions.
EXTRAVAGANCE AS A CAUSE FOR DIVORCE.
Fifty men in Pittsburg in one day applied for divorce on the ground
that their respective wives are extravagant. The majority of these men
are in fairly comfortable circumstances, or would be, according to their
contentions, It their wives had any Idea of the value of money. One, a
salaried man getting ?70 a week, stated that In a year his wife had bought
forty-four hats and twenty-nine gowns, eating up entirely J1000 he had
saved besides using up all his salary. Others reported similarly.
Tim mnnov nrnhimm hns undoubtedly become one of the nrlnclpal rea-
sons for dissension in families, and la one of the most fruitful causes of
domestic infelicity. An extravagant wife can work havoc with a man's
peace of mind, but there are two sides to the story. Many men aro not
60 frank with their helpmeets as they should be. The wife outlines
knows little of her husband's financial condition. She sees the money
come in regularly and, feminine-like, argues that there is always more
where it! came from. In a great many Instances, too, men have married
womemlwho were accustomed to having more than their husbands can
Whore real affection exists reason, of course, can be used. Absolute
frankness on the part of a husband may bring to a wife a realizing sense
of the wreck she Is making of the happiness of both. Where love does not
exist the conditions are different and it appears that there is but one of
two courses to follow. Elthor ho husband must take a firm grip on the
reins himself or they must go their separate ways.
Candor In the first place, however, would save the divorce courts a lot
of work. If marriage were looked upon not only in the light of a partner
ship lor mutual return of affection, but as a business agreement as well,
and a thorough understanding were reached before the twain were united
there would be few requsts for divorce In which the dollars and cents
figure as the principal cause. But then this may be too much to ex
pect. Love Is blind and the sordid, vulgar question of money has no place
In the cherae of destiny which the average man and woman figure out for
themselves before marriage. After It well, that's Just what we have
been trying to explain.

ANNIVERSARY OF A GREAT FIRE.
The people of Chicago observed the
40th anniversary of that city's "big
fire," on Monday. The announce
ment serves to recall that tremend
ous conflagration, one of the greatest
ever known In an American city, and
having few parallels In the world's
history. The Chicago fire began
about 9 o'clock on the evening of
Sunday, October 8, 1871, the current
reports stating that It was due to the
kicking over of a lamp by a cow
which was being milked at the time.
The flames originated in a small
barn In the western part of the city,
and spread with unexampled rapid
ity through the heart of the munici
pality, carrying destruction to the
finest buildings the place could boast.
It was not until tho early morning of
October 10 that the fire was checked,
and by that time the burned space
was 2,124 acres in extent. The
main business and residential sec
tions were devastated, there was
large loss of life, estimated at about
300, and the value of the property
consumed was placed at ?200,000,
000. These are impressive figures.
Moscow was burned in 1812 to pre
vent the city being the place of shel
ter for Napoleon and his troops; but
the Moscow loss was $150,000,000.
Even the ruin wrought by the Paris
Communists in 1871 did not equal
that at Chicago, for tho total charg
ed to the fanatical lnceddiarles was
$150,000,000. There have been oth
er big fires in the United States, In
cluding that in Boston in 1872, but
tney did not rival the Chicago con
flagration, Boston's loss being $75,
000,000. Baltimore had a $50,000,
000 blaze in 1904. The only visita
tion that surpassed Chicago In the
actual loss inflicted was that at San
Francisco in 190G, when $350,000,
000 damage was done. But in that
case responsibility was divided be
tween the earthquake and the fire.
One feature of the Chicago celebra
tion will be an effort to secure a gen
eral cleaning up of buildings and
yards, with a view of removing In
flammable refuse. That Is a good
Idea, and the lesson should be im
pressive. Care of that kind constant
ly exercised would be effective, in re
ducing tho fire loss of the' cpuntry,
now so lamentably large. ,

It was a very queer machine,
A locomotive small!"

Choo, choo, choo, choo It' fairly flew,
Till all It's force was spent.
Choo, choo, choo, choo, choo, choo
The wheels went swiftly 'round!
It was tho first machine like that
To roll on Freedom's ground."
" The villagers came out to see
Tho Lion run by steam,
They gazed with wonderment and
It seemed just like a dream.
To see that mass of Iron and steel,
Go like a thing possessed,
It made some very frightful sounds,
As if it was distressed."
"Horatio Allen was the man
Who was tho engineer
He pulled the- throttle open wide,
And had but little fear,
As on the narrow track it went
With all Its strength and might.
