To-day Mr. 11. ,1. Meiga, clerk of the
Supreme Court of thoDisUictnf Coltim

Born In 1801, on the 1 Uh day of April,
Sir. Meigs In his long span of life has

healthy, growing child when President
Jefferson, by a skillful coup d'etat, ac
quired the vast region then known as
Louisiana fioni tho great Napoleon.
31r. Jlelgs was a young man when
Lafayette paid his second visit to this
country. lie saw tho rise of that strange
lcliglous delusion, Jlonnonlsm, which
still remains among us, a puzzle to
philosophers and a problem statesmen

the rise, from small beginnings, of the
agitation against slavery, Its piogrcss
and Anal triumph after four years of
bloody civil war.
He lived during the Augustan era of
American literature and icail tho pro

sturdy youngster when Fulton's "Cler

Verily, the world upon which Mr.
Meigs looks on the beginning of his
ninth decade is a vastly different pno
from that upon which his babyish eyes
opened. It Is vastly diffeient from the
world in which, as a young man, he
.made his first essay in active business
life, lie has seen his own country ad

to that of one of the Great Powers of
And now In the serene evening of a
well-spent life, In the full enjoyment of
green old age, with all his faculties

his children's children, ho can look
back to that far-off day In the first year
of this century, the path lined with the
splendid scientific achievements and
the moral and material advancements

glorious of all the centuries since the

at tho conclusion of Sllss Rohan's
very vigorous scene at the end of tho

Mr. Daly appeared before the curtain
and made a most modest and apprecia
tive little speech, In which he was
clever enough- to say that having se
cured tho approval of Washington, his
tioupe had nothing to fear lrom tho
critical judgment of London. Tho
play of the evening "The Roilioad of
Love," Is one of Sir. Daly's delight

though not a veritable "Flying Dutch

The Henry llurlesque Company,
The audience that gicetcd the famous
Henry Burlesque Company at Kcr
nan's Theatio last night was as en
thusiastic as It was large. The house
was literally packed and the sparkling
programmo was liberally Interspersed
with applause. The popular manager
of the company, John Hi Smith, gave
his personal supervision during the
evening. The opening piece, "Sirs.
Lanetrce's Reception nt the Art Gal
lery," was a sort of musical melange,
with striking tableaux of feminine
beauty nnd symmetry.
SIIss Ada" Henry ns Mrs. Jersey
Lanyirce was heartily encored. Frank
J. Dyer, the jig, reel and buck dancer;
William F. Kaye, the character come
dian, and Emmcrson and Cook, knock
about comedians, were all winning
cnids. The Coiiitland sisters, vocal
ists, appeared at their best. Belle
Clifton "skipped tho light fantastic"
with case and gi ace, and Sam Dearln,
the American traveler, fahly execcdod
himself. The concluding act was tho
New York sensation, "The Seven
Temptations," with Sliss Ada Henry
In tho ending role. The company Is
mnda up of some of tho best vaudeville
performers In tho country and is well
worthy of n visit.
The entcitainment presented at the
Globe .Theatre last night was far above
tho average. Tho Dissolving Views of
Profcssor'Raymond wcro good and the
sparring bouts wero aitlstlcally per

good music and funny situations. Tho

Let us consider a case. I set a sub

"You know A; ho Is a contempti

has become his enemy. At tho appointed
hour he will bo at tho place naiccd, and
will deal the blow with a steady hand.
Whother arrested or not for the
deed, he will find It out of his power to

Ono orihein Tolls Why.
From the A'ao York Prut.
Thero nro two things about which tho
average man nbont town will not
argue. Ho can bo drawn Into contro
versies on everything olso pertaining
to life, from' tho material of which a
pin is made to the source of volcanic
eruptions or tho Gulf Stream, but he
will not have a disputation about poli
tics or religion. Yet sometimes your
averago man about town sparkles with
wit nnd wisdom on both of these
tabooed topics without controversial ex
pression. It was In a club up town
last nlclit that I heard a well-known
gentleman of thlstvpo sav:
"Whoever knows mo knows that I
am a partisan of partisans, and yet I
never discuss politics with my friends.
. 1 belong to tho district committee of my
organization; I do my best to secure
victory for my parly; you couldn't glvo
mo an olllco If tho commission camo ou
a silver plnltcr. Now, you think it
queer that I will not discuss politics.
I will tell you why I don't. It breeds
bnd blood, and, philosophically speak
ing, 1 bellcvo the other fellow's politics
nio as good as mine, and I Will not
quarrel with him over them,
"I bellovo tho principles advocated
by my party are best for tho country.
Ho believes tho principles advocated by
his party are best for tho country. I
can't convert him. Ho can't convert
mo. Then what Is the use of getting
In a heat becauo wo differ in our bollof
ns to the best means of attalninlng what
we both desire? Life Is too short to
discuss politics, anyhow."
"I've got tho samo feeling about re
ligion," continued" the speaker. "Like
every other man about town, I expect
some tiuio or other to become good, to
join the church and make my peace
with my Creator. But I want to put
it off to tho last moment. That may bo
all wrong, but .wo aro all procrasll
nators vheio r6Hgion Is concerned'
Tho means of rcachlng'tho end wo nil
deslro arc not worth fighting over. Now,
Irwns bred a Presbyterian, but I have
come to havo such respect for tho Cath
olic lcliglon that I shall spmo day turn
that way for lcllgtoils consolation. I
"But I wouldn't discuss with a friend
whether he should follow me, or allow
him to discuss with mo whether I was
going in the right direction, for tho
same reason that I will not enter into
a controversy about politics. Sly awn
judgment about tho Catholic Church
hoB como through my appreciation of
Its dealings with tho poor nnd with
women. No mnn or woman Is so hum
ble that the Catholic Church does not
put its arms around him or her. No
devout Catholic woman ever goes
astray; marriage Is a sacrament with
her, and rather than vlolato her mar
riage vows sho will die. But no fallen
woman falls to find consolation In the
same Church if she is penitent. That
is tine religion to my notion."

A great firm, this. Can the world
show a greater? We think not. Look
at ils God-given capital. A soil full of
mineral wealth and tho rich bases of
agricultural prosperity; great water
courses i unniug from Its agrloultui o and
mineral centres to tho sea; fountains of
oil spouting up In Us midst, and literally
raining riches ou largo tracts of terri
tory; vast forests of tho finest timber in
the world; all the varieties of cllmato
necessary for the production of nearly
all the products of the earth; Immense
Inland seas affording facilities for a
domestic commerce almost equal to that
which Its far-extended coastline secures
to it on two great oceans these are Its
icsources, or rather n part of them, for
the grand schedule cannot be com
pressed into a paragraph.
Then look at tho firm Itself. A
people energetic, enterprising, self-reliant,
shrewd and brave, living under a
government that gives the largest scope
to their capabilities. True, there has
been trouble in the house at times; but
the firm of Uncjo Sam fc Co., is a young
firm and a vigorous one. and tho olu
