One of the customs still adhered to
is the ancient ritual of the burning of
Judas-a dummy stuffed with straw
and fireworks. This ceremony of
burning, mock Judas, a burlesque on
the traitor of the bible, is a timne-hon
ored one among Latin-American races
and was performed in one of Panama's
busiest streets a short time since.
On this occasion an unusually large
crowd had congregated in the street
and all balconies and windows in the
vicinity were crowded to their utmost
capacity. The ceremony had just
begun with the reading of the will of
the deceased (a farcical document)
when an overcrowded balcony gave
way, precipitating several dozen peo
ple into the street below. In all seven
teen people were seriously injured,
but after the wounded were removed to
their homes and to the hospital the
ceremony was completed.
An American but needs to visit a Co
lombian city, and especially the ceme

fault he formerly found with his native
land, he will ever afterwards consider
the United States a "God's country"
in every sense of the word, and this
appellation is one by which the United
States is widely known throughout the
tropics. A party of excursionists se
cured a few days leave of absence in
order to see something more of the
world, and a trip to a near-by Colom
bian city was taken. The prime object
of the tour was exploration, conse
quently nothing was overlooked. The
first point of interest was the jail. It
was a massive building of concrete,
stone and masonry, extending from the
main street to the sea-wall over a city
block distant. Beneath the ground
floor was a cellar extending the full
length of the building and out under
some of the near-by streets. This
place was catacombed with dungeons
which compared favorably with those
of ancient Rome. How many sub-cel
lars and deeper dungeons there were
could not be ascertained. The whole
place was full of rats and in a fear
fully unsanitary condition. Some of
the cells extended out under the sea
wall and during high tide the sea
covered the floors to a depth of four
feet, consequently some unfortunate
creatures were compelled to spend four
hours out ofevery twelve in water that
gradually reached a height of four
feet, with no way to escape it. Once
in several days a new bunch of meat
dried in strips was hung in the pas
sageway where prisoners from several
tr sageway where prisoners from several
cells could reach it through the bars.
ie This was all the food they got.
- Nothing of unusual interest was ob
n served until the cemetery was reached,
It when there was beheld the "evicted
skeletons" -we had heard about. It
h was an ipstitution whose existence is
,, derogatory to the self respect of a com
.- munity, outrageous to public decency
n and disgraceful to the ideals professed
by a so-called civilized nation. There,
within a few minutes' walk of the heart
y of a leading and ancient city, were to
" be seen things that severely shock the
s moral sensibilities and cause one to
e lose his bearings for the moment and
° wonder whether he is really in a mod
ern civilized country or in some Tar
tar cemetery or battlefield when the
e after carnage was complete. On enter
:s ing the cemetery the first appearance
was that of a tidy, well-ordered place
e which, to the imaginative visitor,
might breathe an invitation of tran
quility and repose. The vaults were
in good repair and, mounted with
beautiful immortelles, gave no sugges
' tion of the gruesome sights which later
awaited the visitors. A little stroll
over the grounds and the pleasant il
lusion just received was dispelled and
Y in its place came the revulsion and
nausea which ordinarily follow a
g. hastly discovery. For within a few
* yards of the well kept vaults were to
be seen a number of open eraves and
distributed around and about them
were a number of disjointed human
skeletons, mixed with splinters and
coffin boards, shreds of semi-decayed
clothing and other like fragments
thrown up in exhumation. Between
the graves and on the mounds on
either side were ribs and thigh bones,
whole and broken, sticking out in pro
fusion, while grinning skulls attracted
the attention by hideous pantomime.
Some of the fragments were in ad
vanced stages of decay, while others
were fairly well preserved and showed
signs of comparatively recent inter
ment. Now and then other relics con
fronted the gaze. In one case a frag
ment of hair evidently belonging to a
woman came into view near some ves
tiges of shrouds, the texture of which
showed them tohaveenveloped the body
of a female. A little further on the
bone pile was reached. This was fif
teen or twenty feet in diameter, a great
pile of partially burned human bones,
skeletons and cotions. On the edge of
the pile was a cotlia in a good state of
peWservation but turned upside down.
Without making known his intentions,
the guide kicked this over, whereupon
out rolled a skeleton with part of the
flesh still clinging to the bones and
partially burned. On some of the
tombs were noticed dates several
months in the future. The guide ex
plained that no corpse in the city bur
ial grounds had any fixed tenure of
space, the graves being merely rented;
that the dates seen on the tombs were
the dates at which the rent would ex
pire; that so long as the financial po
sition of the corpse enabled it to meet
the landlord it rested in peace, but as
soon as it became delinquent it was
evicted, and that when the bones, ac
cumulated to a degree that became em
barrassing they were burned and thus
gotten out of the way permanently.
All this return to barbarism is the result
of the government leasing the burial
privilege to private parties, who con
duct it on business lines without re
gard for conscience. In some of the
older cemeteries of New Orleans-as an
instance, a cemetery in Louisa street.
-I have seen the open graves, grave
fragments strewn about and the bone
pile, all of whichis nowexplained tome;
but at the time I could not believe that
such a state of barbarism still existed
within the border of the United States
proper, and in one of the nation's
chief cities at that.

$80 Per Month Guaranteed by the Greatest
School of Telegraphy in the
The management of the Cotton Belt
Railway system has agreed to employ
every gradt'a'- of the telegraphy de
partment , the Tyler Commercial
College, of Tyler, Texas, at a mini
mum salary of $60 per month and 20
cents per hour for all over-time, which
makes their stations pay from $80 to
$190 per month. This road, as well
as some other lines, is furnishing
this school with all its telegraph
and station blanks. The Western
Union Co. is doing the same. 'The
Cotton Belt road has run a loop of
its train order wire through the teleg
raphy department of this school, en
abling all the advanced students to
receive real messages as they pass
over the wire from different operators
along the line. No other school in
America enjoys such privileges, and
no doubt this school would never have
enjoyed them had it not been for the
fact that the railroad and Western
Union companies recognized the ex
cellent work it is already doing.
A life scholarship will cost but $45.
The average time for completing the
course is four months. What young
man could not afford to borrow the
money, if necessary, to take this
course, with such an assurance of

which to replace it. Many of our

The Filipinos to Have a Parliament.
A press despatch from Washington
dated October 30 says that President
Roosevelt is prepared to redeem his
promise made to the Philippine peo
ple through Secretary Taft that they
shall have a parliament of their own,
conditional upon their good behavior
for a term of two years, and it is un
derstood that Secretary Taft himself
will proceed to the Philippines next
spring to witness the installation of
the new form of representative govern
ment. March 27, 1905, the Philippine
census was published, and consequently
two years from that date, March 27,
1907, under the terms of the act of
congress the president will direct the
Philippine commission to call a gen
eral election for the choice of delegates
to what will be known as the Philip
pines assembly. This body is to take
over all legislative powers heretofore
exercised by the Philippine commis
sion in all that part of the archipel

Dear Sir-No man is in a position

What paint? The paint that takes
least gallons; for paint costs money,
and putting it on costs twice as much
as the paint.
That is short; but that's all; it in
cludes the rest. One paint wears long,
another wears short; but the one that
wears long is the least gallons paint;
least-gallons means pure and strong,
and most-gallons means adulterated
and weak, besides small gallons.
Paint is one of the biggest interests
in the United States; not the business
of making it; no, the business of paint:

The Tulane Lease.
The committee of attorneys to whom
the question was submitted by the
board of administrators of the Tulane
University unanimously reported that
there was nothing either legally or
morally wrong in the lease of the Ba
ronne street property of the university,
which includes the sites of the Tulane
and Crescent theatres; and that the
fact that the wife and son of Judge
Charles E. Fenner, then president of
the board of administrators, were in
terested in the lease, constituted no
reflection upon the judge or anyone
else concerned in the transaction.
Following the, reception and ap
proval of this report by the board,
Judge Fenner, who had previously
resigned his office and membership,
tendered to the administrators a sur
render of the interest held by his wife
in the Baronne street lease, and the
judge's son, Chas. P. Fenner, has
made a like tender of his interest in
the same lease, both offers being con
ditioned upon the refunding of the
amounts expended by the lessees for
the purchase of the shares and im
provement of the property.
These generous offers were gladly ac
cepted, as they involve the aqquisition
by the administrators of four-ninths
of the stock representing a profitable
business investment, and there should
be general recognition and commenda
tion of the high-minded motives that
actuated Judge Fenner and his wife
and son in making this voluntary sur
render of valuable interests in order
that no possible disadvantage or in
jury might be incurred 'by Tulane
University because of the ctiticism
growing out of their connection with
the lease in question.
The Boston Herald has published a
full retraction of and apology for its
article severely animadverting upon
the management of Tulane's affairs
by the board of administrators, hence
there will be no prosecution of that
paper for libel, but the suits of the
eight administrators for $10,000 each
against the New Orleans Daily States
-based mainly on the reproduction
of the Herald's article-are still pend
ing. The States admits that the most
objectionable statements in that arti
cle were palpably incorrect, but ad
heres to its own criticisms of the lease
of the Baronne street property from
the standpoint of business judgment
and the interests of the university.
The main objection to the transaction
is the unusually long term of the lease
and the absence of any provision for
the university's participation in the
pecuniary benefits arising from the in
creased and increasing value of the
property, but this objection should
not be construed as reflecting upon
the integrity or motives of the distin
guished and honorable gentlemen who
composed the Tulane board when the
lease was effected.
