According to thu report by tho bu

of the census of telephones covering

miles of wire in the United States
enough to girdle tho earth at the
equator 1,153 times and connected
11,710,520 telephones and 21,175 public
The messages or "talks" sent over
theso wires aggregated tite stupendous
total of nearly 22.000,000,000, or, to be
exact, 21.845,722,333. Figured on Uio
estimated population of tho country In

An account of tneso ana or uie teen

The Thrco Tax Measures
The following argument has becu
advanced favoring the adoption of
the three measures rclutive to the
street car situation:
The three tux measures thu
the city council litis put on (lie
Jjullot lor tne special election
on May 21, for the purpose of
Inking some of the public bur
dens from thcshoul(lcrs of the
car rulers and distrtbuthm morn
equitably are all short and easy
to understand.
The first one aims to reduce
the present bridge lolls from 3
cents per car lo 1 cent per car,
Ibe difference being made up by
luxation amounting to a levy of
iivc-ienuis ui a mm tor two
years, and three-tenths of a mill
annually thereat (er.
Tho second one spreads the
cost of new paving laid on the
streets between the ear tracks
over the general tax rolls in
stead of making it an exclusive
charge against the street ear
comnanv. The tax lew In cnv.
er this plan amounts to six-
tenuis ui u iiuii i or two years
and llircc-lcmhs ol a null there
The third measure relieves
the car-riders of the cost of
repairing and maintaining pave
ment already laid, and makes
it a charge against the general
tax rolls of the city, llie tax
levy for this proposition
amounts to 1.5 mills lor two
years and 1 mill annually (here
What is really sought for in
these measures is to see that the
regular patrons of the street car
company are not made to bear
more Hum their just si in re of
the cost ol the service. Hereto
fore the man of family nnd who
spends considerable money of
ms weekly or mommy pay lor
transportation has had churned
against him all these public im
posts continued in these metis
tires, while the heavy property-
owners, mg Dtismess concerns
and other interests which have
grown and prospered because
llie city lias modern street mil
way service have not Iieen as
sessed for any portion of these
various items oi expense.
The adoption of the forctio
ing measures is of vital interest
to the modest home-owner an
taxpayer for. while lliev would
add a trifling sum iu the way Of
taxes, amounimg to si.uu lor
$1,000 or taxablu properly, this
would be offset many times
over when thu dillerences in
cost of the car rides be consid
ered, for the city council aud
pumic service commission vir
tually agree that if the measures
do not pass, an 8-cent car fare
will he necessary to pay for the
car service rendered, while, if
the tax measures are adopted,
the rate of fare can be kept to
cents, in case ol the taxpayer
wno uas several car-ridel's in
bis family this will make a sub
stantial difference iu thu course
of a year approximately two
cents a day, or about $7 a year
per person.
Another item winch one of
the measures seeks to readjust
on an equitable basis Is to see
Hint in an indirect way, at least,
that abutting property helps to
pay for the paving m thu ear
trucks just as it does for the bal
ance of the street on the ground
mat tnu street car company
does not use or need this pav
ing, and that under the present
arrangement the car-rider must
pay for it iu the end. -
"Publlck Occurrences" In 1690, Oot
Out One Issue, and Then the Au
thority Suppressed It,
America's first newspaper, tho Nob
ton News-Letter, first published in
1701, en exhibition at the Massachu
setts Historical society, marked the
beginning of continuous journalism In
the Ilrltlsh colonies. Until 1701 Uie
nearest approach to a nownpnper In
tho everyday life of the colonies was
tho manuscript "news-letter," which
was usually addressed by thu writer
to a governor or a leading clergyman,
and was presumably shown around
and thu "news." further circulated by
word of mouth.
An earlier effort than that of tho
Hoston NowM-tter to publish n news,
paper In the colonies Is on record Iu
the uttempt to publish 1'ubllck Occur
rences, In 1000. The Introductory
paragraph announced that "It Is do
signed that the countroy shall bo fur
nished onco a month (or If any (Hut
of Occurrences huppen, oftencr) with
nn Account of such considerable thlngH
as have arrived unto our Notice." The
"legislative authorities" of the time,
however, found tome "refloctlons of n
very high nature" In Its columns, and
the I'ubllck Occurrences ma do no sec
ond appearance.
The capacity for making friends, the
ability to win others to us, to fasten
them to our souls with hooks of steel,
to surround ourselves with those who
are loyal and true, Is a wonderful
power. Some possess It In a marvel
ous degree; they make friends without
effort. Itut although coinpurnUvely
few are thus gifted It Is possible for
every one to develop the power In
greater or less degree.
"Only be admonished," us Emerson
says, "not to strike leagues or menu-
ship with cheap persons where no
friendships can be. Our Impatience
betrays us Into rash and foolish alli
ances." Orison Swett Marden, In Chi
