SciintorStcwatt introduced a bill to
fix presidential mid congressional
salaries. It proposes to raise tlic
salary of the President to $100,000
a year; llial of the Vice President
and speaker of the House of Re
presentatives to $20,000 each, and
of each Senator, representative and
delegate to $10,000. It is provided
that the bill shall take effect March
The salaries of. the highest public
officals in the United States are
ridiculously, small compared with
the incomes of many prizes fighters
and the average college president
receives less than a first-class chef.
The chief justice of the Supreme
Court of the United States receives
$10,500 a year, his associates $10,-
1000, Cabinet officers $8000 and
' Senators $5000.
I In contrast to this an enthusi
astic public contributes about $75.-
.000 a year to the support of Robert
Fitzsimmous, and several other
I fighters have incomes measured by
1 the tens of thousands.
I There are not more than half a
j dozen college presidents in tne
'country who receive salaries of $10,
000 a year. The number who re-
iceive even $5000 a year is com
paratively small. 1 lirouguout the
South and West the average is but
$2000 or $3000 a year. There are
a number of chefs in America
with salaries of $10,000 a year,
with valuable perquisites. A great
many more, known in the pro
fession as "seconds," receive $5000
The contrast is especially re
markable when cotupand with the
conditions in other countries,
notably Great Britain. England's
lord chief justice receives $46,000 a
year and the lord chancellor $50,
000, with a retiring pension of
$25,000 a year. The positio'n of
lord chief justice corresponds to
our chief justice of the Supreme
Court with but $10,500.
The British secretaries of state
receive $25,000 a year each and a
life pension of $10,000 a year.1 The
Cabinet offichds of the United
States receive but $8000, seldom
for a term of over four years, and
no pension. The enormously re
sponsible position of Attorney
General of the United States pays
$8000, or probably less than the
salary of the cook who prepares his
meals. The British attorney gene
ral draws $35,000 a year with in
cidental fees that bring his total
public income up to $60,000 a year.
The array salaries are out of all
proportion with the pay of officers
in otuer countries, rue imtisii
army's commander-in-chief draws
$33,000 a year. In contrast to this
Lieutenant-General Miles receives
only $7500 annually. While a
British rear admiral receives $13,
600 a year, an American rear ad
miral is paid but $6000.
The same contrast is found all
along the line. The speaker of the
British House of Commons re
ceives $25,000 a year and a house
in London rent free. In America
the Speaker of the House of Re
presentatives and the president of
the Senate receive but $8000 a
year apiece. The contrast is es
pecially remarkable in view of the
fact that the average of salaries in
the United States in the ordinary
activities is higher than in any
other country in the world. There
are a number of railroad, bank and
insurance presidents in the couutiy
with salaries of $50,000 a year, and
$25,000 a year has come to be the
usual salary of the man in charge
ol an important business.

Facts About llmiollt of llatlu In Old
Mnn is naturally an outdoor
animal. The tropics being his
natural home, he lives in cold
countries only at the expeiiee of nil
enormous outlay of labor, and pro
bably also wtth a very considerable
shortening of his life.
The value of outdoor life is best
appreciated by those accustomed to
sedentary life when opportunity is
afforded them to spend a few days
in the open air. It needs no
lengthy argument to demonstrate
to such a person the value of con
tinuous outdoor life as a health
promoter. The value of such a
life do.s not consist wholly in the
purity of the air and the exercise,
matters of great importance, but
also in the cooling effect of the air
in motion, and especially in the
vitalizing influence of the sunshine.
The rays of the sun, says Dr. J.
H. Kcllog, contain heat and chemi
cal rays as well as light rays. The
heat acts powerfully upon the glands
and vessels of the skin, 'while the
chemical rays influence the nervous
system in a remarkable way. It is
the chemical rays which causa so
The marvellous energy manifest
ed in plant life is derived from the
sun acting upon the green parts to
organize and vitalize the elements
of the earth and air into living sub
stances. The same energy of the
sunlight is essential to animal life.
The sun bath is now a well-re
cognized and much valued thera
Iu this form of treatment the
whole body is exposed to the di
rect action of the sun's rays. Per
sons who are not accustomed to ex
posure to the sun, and individuals
who have light hair and light skins,
should make the first exposure to
the sun of short duration ten of
fifteen minutes. Longer exposures
are likely to produce sunburn. No
particular harm is done by sun
burn, excepting the inconvenience
occasioned by it. The pigmenta

burn protects the skin from further
The body may be exposed either
in the open air or before a window.
When the sun's rays are so intense
that the heat is depressing, , the
heat rays may be filtered out by
means of a blue screen placed be
tween the patient and the sun.
After the sun bath a cold plunge,
a cold shower, a cold towel rub, or
a wet-sheet rnb should be ad
ministered to tone the skin and the
In the summer time in a hot
climate the sun bath may be very
conveniently taken in an outdoor
gymnasium. A sand pile furnishes
a most appropriate couch, as the
heat which it accumulates may be
utilized as an aid to induce per
spiration when this is desired.

Hamilton Wright Mabie, nt the
end of an address in New York,
quoted verbatim a child's essay on
Henry VIII as follows:
"King henry 8 was the greatest
widower that ever lived. He was
born at Anno Domini iu 1086 he
had 435 wives besides children.
The first was beheaded and exe
cuted. The second was revoked.
She never smiled again but she said
the word Calais would be fouud on
her heart after her death. The
greatest man in his rain was Lord
Duke Sir Garret Wolsey. He was
sir named the boy batchlor. He
was horn at the age of 17 unmar-lied."

Thousands of devotees play chess
by correspondence, and there is a
game now going on between a man
in Canton, 0., and another in War
saw, Russia, that it will take
several years to complete, each
move being sent by postal card
from one player to the other. Cable
matches are of frequent occurence
and many persons will remember
the international game that took
place some years ago between a
team made up of members of Con
gress and one composed of members
of the House of Commons. Dur
ing that contest, one move was
cabled across the Atlantic and a
reply received iu forty seconds.
And now that wireless telegraphy
has become a feature of ocean
