What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

..C A P I T A L G O S S I P / [S p ecial CorreBpopcence.] W ashington ,. 'Deo. 10. 1&95.— So me; interesting statistics are now being made, public through re­ ports ofithe Census Bureau which are being given out. One feature of the returns afford' a very in­ structive study of the density of population in the great- cities of this country and abroad. Taking- the average, Chicago is shown to have only fhirt'e'efriffhabilanta- to each acre of ground. People are more crowded in New York, nine ty-four of them being packed into each acre. But in Paris there are 162 persons to each acre, and Ber­ lin stands at the head of the list of European cities with 255 individ­ uals per. acre. It seems rather curious, to learn that New York averages eighteen people for each dwelling, whereas London figures out only eight persons for each house. This is because London is very.much spread out, most of the dwellings are small. In Paris, where the houses are mostly big and the people live in flats, the average is twentw-seven for each house, and in Berlin, for like rea­ sons, it is fifty one. No other city in this country has so large a graveyard area as New York, its thirty-nine cemeteries containing at present the remains of about 1,- 868,672 dead people. The metro­ polis on Manhattan Island is also the best lighted city, having forty- seven street lamps to each mile of streets. Boston comes next with - - 4JL .« . /f. . 1 «, J J l . * 1_ , ** Providence, JR. I., next with thirty lamps. New Haven, Con., has the greatest area of parks in propor­ tion to its size, New York being a close second. Figures given out by the Cen­ sus Bureau seem to indicate that the people of Chicago are cleaner than those of New York, inas­ much as the average person in the former city uses ninety- one gallous cf water daily, while the consumption in Gotham is on­ ly seventy-four gallons per capita daily. Residents of Buffalo, N. Y. must be remarkably cleanly, as each of them expends 196 gallons of water per diem. However, they do not equal in \this respect the citizens of Hoboken, N. J , who use 289 gallons apiece every day. The people of Waco, Tex.. would appear to be the largest consumers of the same fluid, their daily average being 519 gallons for each individual, but a great part of this is employed for pur . poses of irrigation. The residents of Fall River, Mass., seem to be exceedingly economical of water, as they utilize only twenty five gallons daily per capita. Philadelphia, according to the census returns, ought to be called the city of fountains. It has 646 of them, Baltimore coming next with 187, end Boston third with 74. Theivater supply of Milwau­ kee is stated in the census reports to be largely consumed- in.The shapeof beer. From the samelu- thority it may be presumed that the people, of, Milwaukee drink more beeripet capita than those of any other eity, inasmuch as. the beer gardens of that place have; seating capacity for more than one-half the , population. The -town which has the greatest num­ ber, of saloons in proportion to its inhabitants, as reported in the -census, is Atlantic Oily, N. J., it possessing fifteen such resorts for every 1,000 people. Butte City, Mont., which long held the repu­ tation of being a very wicked town, has only thirteen saloons per 1,000. Chicago has more dogs than any other city in this coun­ try, licensing 17,000 of them an­ nually at $2 each. THE DYING EDITOR. The owner of a paper lay dying in his lair, and the dew' of death had gathered on his brow so calm and lair; but a printer knelt be. side him, as his life-blood ebbed away, and asked the dying editor if he had a word to say. The doomed man murmered softly as he grabbed the printer’s fist: •‘Well, at last the struggle’s over} and 1 never will be missed. ‘•Take a message and a token to that city man of mine, that all his worn-out chestnuts he had better put in brine. There’s his joke about the weather, which he used this many years, and the gag about the fellow who is always hunting beers. An the item lie’s — wi u u t,no lim a vvau ¿/eu- dles bopks, and the chestnut based on people who go fishing in the brooks; just to save the paper’s credit, and to cast no slurs on mine, I would ask him as a favor to put such gags in brine. And the lies lie’s fond of telling of the street cars and the tacks, and the one about the dandy who will never pay for clothes, and the one on women cleaning house—its weary, heaven knows! ‘*0,1 know I ’ll slumber happy in my grave beneath the vine if the man who does the city work will put these jokes in brine. Tell the man who tends to business not to weep when lam dead, but to buy himself a club and hit the first man on the head who comes in with strings of items ana r*> quests them printed free, when the regular rates are cheaper than they really ought to be. * Tell the foreman when he make§ up not to turn a rule for me, but to simply print an item sa; ing that my soul isNfree, for 1 want no eulogistic taffy of that kiud iu miue. and I think such hoary'chesfcnuts should be pickled well iu brine. “Have that gay and fresh re portor I engaged the other day put a stop to saying ‘Salah,1 also ‘We have come to stay,,’ and if he should say ‘Ye local’ you must trample in his gore, for you know I’d never allow it iu, the happy days of yore; And the man who » - - , . ^ ìfV*'®’''if'*. comes to ;tvél!v?òfr%^^ paper a paw ter. chesttfuifrl^ print thè paper:pr©m Weather-' full Of storms, ' anU^Tjffft foreman musi be careful whenp%ejj 'is making up th^.fp-rnris,; beauty of the paper m^y- thrpugh all ages shine, and not be like if« neighbors, only fit to, p u tinbrine.’’ —Milwaukee News. >' z /\ 4194.
