j i ne monroe isocinire
The Monroe ' doctrine, now attract
ing very general attention throughout
the world, Is well and briefly de
scribed by James D. Richardson in
"Messages and Papers of the Presi
dents," as follows: "After the over
throw of Napoleon, France, Russia,
Prussia, and' Austria formed the so
called Holy Alliance in September,
1815, for the suppression of revolu
tions within each others' dominions
and for petpetuating peace. The Span
ish colonies in America having re
volted, it was rumored that this al
liance contemplated their subjugation,
although the United States had ac
knowledged their independence.
George Canning, English secretary of
state, proposed that England and
America unite to oppose such inter
vention. On consultation with Jef
ferson, Madison, John Quincy Adams,
and Calhoun, Monroe, in his annual
message to congress in 1823 (11,218)
embodied the conclusions of' these de
liberations 'in what has since been
known as the Monroe doctrine. Re
ferring to the threatened interven
tion of the powers, the message de
clares: "We owe it, therefore, to
candor and to the amicable relations
existing between the United States
and those powers to declare that we
should consider any attempt on their
part to extend their system to any
portion of this hemisphere as danger
ous to our peace and safety. With
the existing colonies or dependencies
of any European power we have not
interfered arid shall not Interfere. But
with the governments who have de
clared their independence "and main
tained it, and whose independence we
have, on great consideration and on
just principles, acknowledged, we
could, not view any interposition for
the purpose of oppressing them or
controlling in any other manner their
destiny, by any European power in
any other light than aa the manifes
tation of an unfriendly disposition to
ward the United States." The pro
mulgation of this doctrine Is accred
ited to Mr. Monroe, hut January 3,
1811, the - principle was substantially
enunciated by Mr. Madison. In a
message to congress of that date
(1,488) while discussing a threat of
"Great Britain to take possession- of a
portion of Florida claimed by Spain,
he used these words: "I recommend
to the consideration of congress q
seasonableness of a declaration
that the United States could not see,
without serious inquietude, any part
of a. neighboring territory in which
they have In different respepts so
deep and so just a concern pass from
the hands of Spain into those of any
other foreign power."
The Bresklbst Food Family.
John Spratt will eat no fat,
Nor will he touch tho lean.
He scorns to eat of any meat;
He lives upon Foodine.
But Mrs. Spratt will none of that;
Foodine she cannot eat
Her special wish Is for a dish
Of Expurgated Wheat
To William Spratt that food is flat
Of which his mater dotes.
His favorite feed his special need
Is Eata Heapa Oats.
But Sister Lil can't see how Will
Can touch snch tasteless food.
As breakfast fare it can't compare.
She says, with Shredded Wood.
Now, none of these Leander please;
He feeds upon Bath Mitts..
While Sister Jane Improves her brain
Lycurgus votes for Father's Oats;
Progglne appeals to May;
The junior John subsists upon
Uneeda Bayla Hay.

Quite a Radish.
A man in Butler, Okla., who has fol
lowed the "biggest ear of corn" and
"biggest pumpkin" controversy in the
Star, writes to tell about his giant
radish. "It Is a black Spanish win
ter radish," this veracious correspon
dent writes, "just commencing its win
ter growth. It has leaves as long as
a Missouri fence rail; It Is larger at
tho top than that Kansas pumpkin,
and has sapped my well of all its wa
ter. It looks like a steam merry-go-round
and is still growing. Grass
hoppers fattened on its leaves now
weigh forty pounds."
Ever Burning Lamps
Towneley Hajl and Park have been
in the possession of the Towneley
family ever since tho reign of King
Alfred, that is to say, for more" than
one thousand years, and have a dis
tinct claim to celebrity, for it is to
be feared that the famous lamp of
Towneley Chapel was tho last of tho
so-called ever-burning lamps in Eng
land. At tho beginning of the last
century there were somo k?Jf a dozen
known to fame still alight, and which
had been burning for centuries, while
at the time of the reformation and the
dissolution of the monasteries by
King Henry VIII., there were many
hundred of them that had been
burning without interruption from the
time of the Norman Conquest.
Doubtless these perpetual lamps
were a remnant of that form of pagan
worship known as the ever-lasting
fire, which was kept alight by guard
ians, both male and female, tho lat
ter known as vestals, and who were
punishable with death If they al
lowed the fire to go out How much
importance was attached even after
the reformation, and well on into the
seventeenth century, in Europe to
these ever-burning lamps is demon
strated by the fact that some of tho
greatest scientists of those days de
voted both much time and labor to
the discovery of some species of 11
luminant that would burn forever.
Many works have been written about
tho matter by French, Italian, and
English writers, some of whom vouch
for the most extraordinary details on
the subject. Thus, for instance, it is
solemnly asserted that at the opening
of thQ tomb of Tullia, tho daughter of
Cicero, in Rome, in tho Via Appla, in
tho sixteenth century, a lamp was
found burning there, which, if tho
story authenticated by records at tho
Vatican, and bearing tho signature
of Pope Paul III., are to be believed,
must have been burning for more than
Bailey, in his English dictionary of
173D, tells that at the dissolution of
tho monasteries in tho time of Henry
VIII. there was a lamp found1 that
had been burned for more than 1,200
years; that is to say, since the sec
ond century of the Christian era, and
deolared that this lamp was in his
days to be seen at the Museum of
Rarities at Leyden, in Holland. Shake
speare, in his address of Pericles, re
fers to "ever-burning lamps," and
Spencer, too, alludes to "lamps which
never go out." From a purely anti
quarian point of view, therefore, it
must bo a source of great regret that
the owners should permit tho extinc
tion of a lamp which, nccording to
tradition, had been burning without
interruption since the days of King
Alfred, that is to say, for more than
one thousand years, In the chapel on
