FINE TRIBUTE TO WASHINGTON
Napoleon's Eulogy of th? World'?
Greatest Man Regarded a? Worthy
of Kternsl Preservation.
Approach of the hundredth anniver
sary of the death of Napoleon Bona
parte recalls the order of the day
which he issued in his capacity as
first consul, to the French army on
the occasion of the death of the first
President of the United States. 1 The
document ls as follows:
"Soldiers ! Washington ls dead 1
This - great man fought against
tyranny. He consolidated the liberty
of his native land. His memory will
always be cherished by the French
people, as well as by ali free men of
the two worlds, but more especially
by the soldiers of France, who, like
himself und the soldiers of America
in times pnst, are righting for equullty
and llboiTy. In recognition thereof,
the first consul orders that for ten
days all the standards and tings of
the troops of the republic shull be
draped with crape. (Signed) Bona
parte."
Not content with this, Bonaparte
insisted Unit an official eulogy of the
liberator of America should be pro
nounced, in the name of the republic,
In thc Temple of Mars, the name then
given to the chapel of the Palace of
the Invalides. The task was confided
to Marcellin de Fontane, the poet, who
was given six days to prepare lt. De
Fontane accomplished his task to the
satisfaction of Bonaparte, and lt ls
generally agreed that his eulogy of
Washington ranks among his very
, finest works.
HERO OF THREE COUNTRIES
South American Republics United in
Their Desire to Do Honor to
Memory of . Bolivar..
The unveiling of a statue to Simon
Bolivar, known as the George Wash
ington of South America, took place
In New York April 1?.
There are statues of Bolivar In
Caracas, Bogota, Lima and elsewhere.
He was South America's superman on
horseback. He drove the Spanish out.
He became "Jefe Supremo" of the
northern half of the continent. ("Hey
fay Sooproymaw," please, signifying
"Supreme Chief.") He fought 400
battles and escaped five attempted as
sassinations.
Bolivar bus been described as "mer
curial, Impractical, visionary, reckless
ly daring, vainglorious, sympathetic,
cunning, sensitive, Intense, ambitious,
with no sense of proportion, cruel and
kind in the same breath, giving vent
to the highest sentiments of frenzied
patriotism, and practicing the most
absolute despotism." History credits
him with having spent 90 per cent of
his .large fortune for his country,
Venezuela, and with having made no
private use of public funds, although
long In control of the revenues of Co
. lumbla, Peru and Bolivia. He failed
lu an attempt to unite ali those coun
tries under one dag, lost his power
and popularity and died in exile.
Would Tsach Youth to Think.
To teach people to think, Dr. C. A.
Mercier of Dournemouth left $100,000
to be used to ?Jund a chair of nation
al logic and scientific method at one of
the universities. Among thc condi
tions imposed nre clnuses directing
that : Students are not to be taught
what Aristotle or anyone else thought
about reasoning, but to think and ren
son clearly for themselves. The pro
fessor is not to be chosen for his
knowledge of tho work or opinions of
other logicians, but for his capacity
to think and to reason and to teach.
In selecting the professor preference
ls to he given to the candidate who
does not know either Greek or Ger
man and, tn any case, when appoint
ed, such professor is not to devote
more than one-twelfth of his teaching
time in teaching the logic of Aristotle
and the schools, nor more than one
twenty-fourth In teaching the logic of
Hegel or other Hermans.-Montreal

An Irish King in Tahiti.
James Norman Hall has stirred up a
veritable tumult in South Boston. In
un article* In Harper's Magazine bc
tells ?d' meeting on a South Sea island
an Irishman named Riley. Orig
inally a native of Reston the- son ol
an Irish Immigrant, Riley ls now the
king of a South Sea island, with un
told riches, a beautiful Tahitian
queen, and hundreds of loyal subjects,
all according to the best traditions of
romance.
Rut who is he? Sou' Boston is
largely populated by Rileys, and Mr.
Hall does not specify to which branch
of the fondly his hero belongs. Since
the publication of tho article there
are but few of bis name who do not
claim kinship with the South Sea mon
arch who. since, as everybody knows,
all the Rileys are descended from the
ancient king of Ireland, Ls but enjoy
ing his mil ural right in ruling from a
royal throne-or hammock.
Oil Shells to the Rescue.
Oil thrown on the waves will calm
them. Hence lt has been suggested
that oil shells bc fired from life-line
guns In the const guard stations, to
calm the waters around stranded
ships.
If the oil shells are hurled well to
the windward of a ship, and are made
to explode on contact with the water,
the oil will soon drift around the ship
and make It possible for a lifeboat to
be launched In safety.
An Ideal oil shell would he one that
could carry n gallon of oil.-Popular

ANGLO-JAP ALLIANCE WILL NOT
Involve America-U. S.-Jap Friend
ship Declared to be Necessary^.
London, June, 23.-'Baron Hava
ehl, the Japanese ambassador to
Great Britain, in an interview to-day
expressed entire agreement with tho
views expressed at the imprlal con
frence concerning the Anglo-Japau
680 alliance, adding that he was sure
his opinion was shared by the Jap
anese government. Obvi?usly, said
the ambassador, no Japanese govern
ment and no sane Japanese could re
gard the alliance as in any way en
visaging strife with America.
"Friendship with the United
States," declared tho ambassador, "ls
on absolute necessity for Japan, not
only politically, but also commer
clay, for trade reatlons with the Uni
ted States is one of our greatest as
sets."
Contending that it was essential
for the peace of the world that tho
utmost friendliness should prevail
between France, Great Britain, tho
United States, Japan and China, Bar
on Havashi referred to what ho was
pleased to term the existing misun
derstanding about China, saying:
".We regard China as in no way
inferior and wish her to be on terms
of equality with other nations. We
want politically what we already
have financially in the international
consortium."
The ambassador concuded by de
claring that naval disarmament
would be an inestimable boon for
the world, and repealing the convic
tion that the Japanese government
was ready to discuss disarmament
and come to an arrangement with
France, Croat Britain and the United
States.

NEW GUINEA HEAD-HUNTERS
Periodical Foray? W?r? Until Com?
paratively Recently a Regular
Thing in tho Island.
TI?til six years ago head-hunting waa
In full swing along the coast of New
Guinea, writes Rt v. E. Cappers In
Catholic Missions, and describes ono
of these expeditions by the tribe of
the Marlnd-anhn or Kaya-Kayas. The
practice, he says, has been consider
ably checked by military expeditions.
Nevertheless head-hunting ls still quite
frequent In the Interior. On the ap
pointed day men, women and children
would hasten to the point of embarka
tion. At the approach of their gool
the boats were anchored, and the en
tire party stealthily entered the forest,
taking care not , to give the alarm.
Extra care was needed once the de- j
slgnated spot had been reached. On
the day before the attack the hunters
kept hidden in the bush, end during
the night they advanced far enough
to launch the attAck early before dawn.
Occasionally, the hunters were hotly
received, but most of thc time thc- la
tended victims were roused from their
sleep by the sudden war-cry of the
whole attacking party, and had no
time to defend themselves. Victims
were felled by the dozen, many of
thom pierced through by the sharp
pointed arrows.
The victors.yelled their war-cry and
repaired to their native haunts, where
days and nights of feasting awaited
them with song and dance, around the
gruesome trophy.
GOT JOHN BURROUGHS' 'GOAT*
Great Naturalist Admitted That Iron
Wall of Treasury Vault Had Bad
Effect on Him.
It was while sitting In from of the
Iron wall of the treasury vault nt
Washington that John Hurroughs,
guardian of the $50,000.000 the vault
contained, wrote his first hook, "Wake
I Robin." In that book lt has been
thougbt that he got closer to nature
than In any of tho others. "Perhaps
I did," he sahl of lt. "I know I was
closer to lt In longing. That Iron wall
reacted on me."
Mr. Burroughs realized, of course,
tho necessity of money to provide the
comforts of existence, and his books
I brought him n handsome return. And
this recalls an Incident of a fox hunt
I In which' be and his brother, Eben,
Joined about a dozen years ago. Ebon
Burroughs lived nt Hobart, In the
Catskills, and on this particular hunt
tho honors went to Eben, who shot tbe
fox. At that time fox skins were
worth about $5, and the successful
brother relished telling of his success.
Once when bonsllng of lt to a party of
friends he was halted hy this from
Brother John: "You have bragged
about that fox hunt long enough. You
shot the fox and sold the skin for $5.
I wrote a little account of tho hunt
and sold lt to a mngaslno for $76. So
there you are."

A dispatch from Birmingham.Ala.,

The Birmingham Age-Ilfbrald will
to-morrow morning be published on
paper manufactured from Southern
spruce pine, which grows along the
banks of the Warrior river and lu
the hilly sections of North Alabama,
covering many thousands of acres.
The paper was manufactured from
wood shipped to Northern mills and
is declared by experts to be the equal
in every respect of the newsprint
mado from Canadian spruce.
The Alabama pine, which ls unfit
for lumber, contains an unusually
fine fibre, which has a thin bark,
virtually no heart, and contains only
a trace of rosin. It grows for miles
along the Warrior river, averaging
from four to twenty-four cords to the
acre. It requires one ton of wood to
make a ton of paper pulp.
