The negro race is now considered
to be one of tlie oldest races in the
world, evidences of its existenco in
prehistoric times having been dis
covered throughout Africa, Austra
lia and Oceania. In historic times
negroes are depicted on the monu
ments of Egypt thousands of years
before the Anglo-Saxon had emerg
ed from barbarism. They have been
in contact continually with the
highest civilizations of antiquity,
but have never risen to the em
inence of other nations, having re
tained their primitive condition,
even as is now apparent in the
southern states, where they are iso
lated in large masses,
Another significant fact is that
the negro brain is smaller than the
Caucasian, the difference in size be
ing represented in both gray matter
(nerve cells) and white matter
(nerve fibers). Brain cells
are the basis of brain power or
mental ability, and their number is
known to remain constant through
out life, so that there seems never
to be a degree of mental develop
ment beyond the possible expression
of the brain cells inherited. Devel
opment of mental activity by expe
rience, education, etc., is considered
to be correlated with the develop
ment of sheaths around the nerve
fibers as they become active in tho
transmission of impulses. The effi
ciency of the brain depends upon
the number and position of such
nerve fibers, just as the efficiency of
a telephone system depends upon
the number of its various connec
tions and ramifications. The negro
brain, having fewer nerve cells and
nerve fibers, assuming that gray
matter and white matter respective
ly represent these numerically, tho
possibilities of developing the negro
are therofore limited, except by
crossing witn othor races. This has
been dona to such an extent in times
past that it is difficult to determine
whether a pure negro really exists
in America. Robert Bennett Bean

A dear old lady who had never
left her native village before decid
ed last summer to pay a flying visit
to Portsmouth to sec her son, a sail
or. The excursion train landed her
at the harbor station. Wandering
down to the pontoon in a dared
fashion, she was hustled into a boat
by an entertaining boatman and be
fore she had recovered from her as
tonishment found herself by the
side of the Victory.
Looking up in awe at the impos
ing old hulk, she spied a sailor's
face beaming at her from a port
hole. Immediately light dawned on
her puzzled brain, and she yelled
out, ''Is this the nary ?"
"Yes, mum," was tho apologetic
"Then tell our Bill I wants 'im,"

"Yes, my Bill, He's in the navy,"

Curious Climatic Conditions on
lialln, In Sibtrla.
Sakhalin, on the eastern coast
of Siberia, presents a very curious
anomaly of climate. The Island is
lathed by two cold ocean curronts,
and in winter nothing protects it
against the icy northwest winds
coming from Siberia. At the sea
level the snow nils continually and
stays on the ground till the end of
-May, and the seashore is very cold,
farther inland, however, especially
as we go higher up, the climate is
modified just (he opposite to what
is observed elsewhere. It has often
been observed in Siberia and in
central Europe (hut in winter the
cold is greater in the plains and
the valleys, and that the highlands
have a sensibly milder temperature.
It is as it the denser cold air accumu
lated in the lowlands. This fact is
very often observed in our climale.
There are several very good ex
amples of it. All the trees and
shrubs of a valley have been known
to be killed by frost, while above
a certain level, very clearly marked
out, on the hill or the mountain, tho
vegetation bus not suflercd at all.
The cold air often flows from tho
summits toward their bases, This
i what takes place at Sakhalin,
The cold air accumulates in the low
regions of the island and on the
coast. The higher regions have a
more elevated temperature. So it
happens that the lower parts have
an arctic vegetation, while the in
termediate altitudes have the vege
tation of a temperate zone, some
The birch, the ash, the pine, the
ilr abound in the low regions and
form often impenetrable forests,
but toward the center of the island
appear bamboos, hydrangeas, azaleas
and other plants thul one is greatly
surprised to meet and wheo pres
ence can be expluiiicd only by tho
altogether abnormal climatic condi
tions of the island.

The Zoroastrlan Today.
With regard to their family life,
the Zoroustrians at Vezd arc mo
nogamists, except in a few isolated
cases where Mohammedan influence
has led to polygamy, especially if
the first wife has borne no children.
The sentiment of the community as
a rule is strongly against dual mar
TiagCs. In the home the wife occu
pies a freer position than among tho
Mohammedans. There was no evi
dence of seclusion, and the impres
sion the women gave was one of
modesty and dignity without any
special shyness. Like the men, tliey
have to adopt a particular style of
ilresi to distinguish them from
Moslem women. Thev do not wear

t V. MAllTIN,
HE age of competition all around is giving place to the age
of CO-OPERATION" AND COMBINATION. It is
vain for men to try to prevent people from organizing.
Tho whole trend, sweep and current of our time is toward
organization. It is a movement ever forward, upward and
toward a larger, hotter AND NOBLER LIFE. So it is in religion,
for religion is not a moro relation between the individual soul and its
God. It also is a relation of man to his fellow man, and we are moving
not toward a church united by a ooramon croed, but toward a church
animated by A COjSEMON DOMINATING PURPOSE.
In tho future all theso denominations which came together through
their representatives at the Mohonk peace conference will be united
by no common sot of formulated beliefs, but by a common spirit and
a common aim. For tho spirit of tho twentieth century is the recog
nition of tho brotherhood in religion, BROTHERHOOD IN" IN
DUSTRY and brotherhood in politics.
Tho nineteenth century has boon an ago of energy and enterprise
surpassing in these respects all other ages, but it has had its vices, and
somo of these still are among us. The first vice of our American life
is our ambition to accumulate, to struggle each man only for himself
and his own and then to measure his placo in tho world by his SUC
CESS IN ACCUMULATING. Our aecond vice is the lawlessness of
self will tho putting of self will above tho law, which is tho will of
the community. And the third is tho false standard. 1 am not con
demning men, rcmembor, because they have amassed fortunes. I am
not attacking multimillionaires. It is hotter to be a multimillionaire
than to wisli you were one AND NOT HAVE THE ABILITY
TO GET THERE. Tho evil of tho multimillionaire is ihe concen
tration of wealth with a sordid aim and a FALSE STANDARD.
The remedy for the ambition to accumulate, for the self will and
the false standard is recognition of the fact that socioty is not u mob
of individuals struggling one with another, each caring only for him
self and hia family, to see what he can get out of the common pile, but
an organism, a personality, in -which very man is to servo every other
man, in which the common iutorest is to bo the supreme object of every
one's endeavor. There must bo recognition of the commonalty of the
nation, the personality of the nation, and every citizen, instead of
voting aud working for his own interest alone, must put forth his
energy FOR THE NATIONAL "WELFARE. Such men we have
that bolong to no purty. You may not agree with their polioy. You
may criticise their party. Their temperament may not be favored
YET YOU CANNOT BUT BELIEVE THAT BUCH MEN ARE REC
OQNUINa THAT THERE IS SOMETHING EL8E TO BE DONE IN
THE STATE THAN TO MAKE THE GOVERNMENT 8UB8ERVIENT
TO INDIVIDUAL INTEREST OR A PROTECTORATE OVER INDIVID.
