IT IS BY FAR THE MOST ELEGANT WA
TER PARK IN THE WORLD.
A Pleasure Stream on Which In the Sea
son There la Always a Crowd and Yet
Plenty of Boom The Trip From Oxford
to Richmond a Delightful Experience.
The river Thames is the most impor
tant as it is the most beautiful water
park in the world. It is to London and
the adjacent counties what the Charles
river should and can by the diligence
of pubho spirit be to Boston and the ad'
jaoent towns. With the hope of stirring
this public spirit and showing what the
English do with their beautiful river,
and how they manage it, how they pay
for its maintenance as a water park, I
present what follows:
The Thames, counting all its turn
ings and twistings and not , measuring
by a direct line, runs something like 200
miles from its source to the sea. On its
banks are 10 counties, including Lon
don, having a population of 8,500,000
people and a ratable valuation of about
$800,000,000. It drains,-with its tnbU'
taries, an area of more than 5, 000 square
miles. Until it enters the oounty of
London it is distinctly a river of pleas
ure. From the western border of the
county of London to the sea, a distance of
sixty odd miles, it is a highway of oom
merce. By its aid London has beoome
the greatest port in the world.
It is of the Thames as a pleasure
stream that I propose to write, but it is
well to understand at the outset that the
river from start to finish as a water
park and as a commercial highway is
under the control of a single authority
called the Thames conservancy.
For purposes of administration the river
is technically divided into two parts
the upper and the lower. The upper
portion is practically what I have al
ready indicated as the water park or
pieasuro section, ana wira mai portion
only am I now concerned.
One sees the upper Thames at its best
from the middle of May to the end of
September. Between those dates the
trip down stream, say from Oxford to
Richmond, a journey of 100 miles, is
one of the" most delightful experiences
that can come to a lover of outdoor pas
time. The best way to see the stream
is to row or punt or paddle down the
river, stopping overnight at any pleas
ant inn you may come to and making
tho journey in easy stages of about 30
miles a day. In this way you see some
of the loveliest portions of the English
country to the best advantage and un
der ideal conditions. This journey is a
'favorite one with thousands of people,
and the facilities for undertaking it in
comfort are abundant. In fact, the
Thames abounds in facilities for out
door pleasure. At every few miles there
are boathonses and inns, ' and almost
anywhere you can put up on the banks
for a day's picnic From end to end of
tbe course, now on one side cf the
stream and now on the other, there is a
towing path for the free use of the pub
lic Wherever tbe path shifts from one
side of the stream to the other there is
a ferry station. 1
There are some 40 locks on the
Thames. At each lock there are keepers
always on duty, and they reside in pret
ty cottages on the banks. Most at the
locks are supplied with - inclined roller
ways, over which small boats can be
easily taken if you prefer not . to wait
for a passage through the look.
Many of the Thameside towns have
an annual rowing regatta, each of whioh
makes for its district the great fete day
of the year. The chief of these regattas
is that at Henley, whose fame is known
to amateur oarsmen the world over. A
Thames fete day affords one of the most
delightful spectacles that can be imag
ined. The course is literally covered)
with small boats. The bright costumes
of tho occupants give a sprinkling of
welcome color to the scene. The festiv
ity is indeed a water carnival. The
houseboats, which make an important
part of the fleet, line the banks and are
decked with flowers and bunting, and
at night every craft is gayly illuminated.
On these occasions the old saying that
"the English take their pleasures sad
ly" is again disproved, for a jollier and
more delightful festa is nowhere to be
found in Europe. Besides, no matter
how great the crowd or how high the
spirits of it, the order of the day is
perfectly kept Perhaps the rough ele
ment of the community does not care
for these water sports. Perhaps the up
per river is too far from the haunts of
the turbulent, but whatever the cause
the fact remains that gala days on the
Thames are as notable for good manners
as for 'good fun, and no matter how
huge the throng (there may be a seem
ingly solid mile of small craft paoked
across the river from bank to bank) yet
the whole business is so well managed
that when the time comes to clear the
course for racing the way is easily made
by the regatta authorities and the offi
cers of the Thames conservancy. Bos
Praise For New York. .

about 10 o'clock. When I got to Broad

ed me of old St. Louis and Kansas City.

A Full tilde of No Faro.
An important case affecting the rights
of passengers on street railways has just
been decided by the practical admission
of the counsel for the defendants in the
case of Harry Sloan against the Balti
more Traction company that the claim
of the plaintiff was a just one. Mr.
Sloan on the night of Dec. 81 last board
ed a cable car going east. The weather
was inclement, and Mr. Sloan was ill,
He tendered his fare to the conductor,
the money was received, and the fare
rung up. The car proceeded but a short
distance whan something happened in
the cable, and the car stopped. Mr. Sloaa
waited for some time. The car didn't
start, and he asked the conductor to re
turn him his fare. This the conductor
refused to do, paying that as it had been
rung up it would be impossible for him
to do so without losing it himself. Final
ly Mr. Sloan got out and walked to his
home. -.He brought suit before Magis
trate S. J. Clark and was awarded $5
damages and costs. The traction com
pany appealed the case to the city court.

Dogs In Pittstmrs Mines.
. Many of the hills about Pittsburg are
pierced with horizontal shafts admitting
to the rich deposits of bituminous coal.
and for many years there has been a race
of hardy dogs employed as beasts of bur
den in these mines. A team of two dogs
will gallop out of the mine dragging alt
er them over the narrow gauge tramway
a little car -laden with many hundred
pounds of coal. To the stranger who
nsits one of these mines it is somewhat
alarming to hear behind him the rumble
of the car accompanied by the quick
steps of the dogs, for the creatures are
sometimes fierce, and the man who
should find bimaelf in the way might
fare ill. The guide, however, always
finds a place of refuge, and the invisible
team rolls by in the darkness, leaving
the stranger behind. St. Louis Repub-

WORLD'S FAIR AWARD

: ": .' ' 1 : v :

The Life of the Ichneumon Fly.
. A writer gives an interesting account of
the curious habits of the .ichneumon fly of
Ceylon, the natural enemy of the spider.
This insect is green in color and in form
resembles a wasp with a marvelously thin
waist. It makes its nest of well worked
clay, and then goes out on a hunting expe
dition. Its victims are invariably spiders
of various kinds,, but all are subject to the
same mode of treatment. A scientific
sting injects some poison whioh effectually
paralyzes the luckless spider, who is then
carried off to the nest and there fastened
with a dab of moist clay.
' Another and another victim is brought t
this chamber of horrors. Then the presci
ent mother ichneumon fly proceeds to de
posit her eggs, one in the body of each spi
der, which can just move its legs in a vagus,
aimless manner, but can offer no resistance.
This done, the fly returns to her werk as a
mason. She prepares more clay and builds
up the entrance to this ghastly cell. Then
she commences a new cell, which she fur
nishes in like manner and oloses. Then sh
adds yet another cell, and so proceeds until
her store of eggs are all provided for, and,
her task in life being accomplished, she
dies, leaving her evil brood to hatch at lei
sura In due time these horrid little maggots
come to life and rind themselves cradled ip
a larder of fresh meat. Each poor spider is
still alive, and his juices afford nutriment
for the ichneumon grub, till it is ready to
pass into its chrysalis stage, thence to
merge as a winged fly, fully prepared to
carry out the traditions of its ancestors
with regard to spiders and to fulfill the
purpose for which they have been created,
according to ichneumon belief. Leisure
Make the Frocks Fireproof. .
With the Fourth of July in th near
distance it may be well for the careful
mother to recall that the little cotton
frocks of her daughter may be made fire
proof by adding an ounce of alum to the
last rinsing water. It would not be a
bad idea to put one of last summer's
dresses through that treatment for wear
on Independence day. New York Times.
