A week has passed with varying re
iwrt8 promising peaco and threaten
ing a general European war, In tho
midst of which a few definite facts
1. IX-legates of the four allied states
and Turkey havo met to discuss
terms of peaco, nnd havo declared
their Intention of signing a peace
protocol, but Uio signing has been
postponed owing to a quetsion uixjii
tho part of Greece.
2. Servla, In defianco of Austria,
has made good her Intention of
occupying an Adriatic iort, having
HCizcd Durnzzo In Albania, having be
gun Its fortification, nnd announced
her Intention of holding It In perpe
tuity. 3. Itoumanla, the Balkan state that
refused to Join the four allied states
In making war uiion Turkey, has an
nounced herself Austria's ally, and
has begun to prepare fon hostilities.
I 4. Austria has summoned her reser
vists from tho Balkan provinces.
5. Germany, through n speech by
her chancellor In tho IUchhtag haB
warned Russia that bIio will fight
side by sldo with Austria )n tho
event of a conflict.
0. Tho cholera situation at Constan
tinople, with threatened outbreaks of
tho disease among tho allied troops.
Is a strong factor for peace so far
as Turkey and tho allies aro concern
ed. 7. France, Great Ilrltlan, nnd Rus
sia aro friendly to tho allies, and
aro deslrou3 of peace, but aro com
mitted to tho proposition that tho
four stntea shall hold what they
havd conquered with tho possible
exception of tho Adriatic port for
8. Another factor favoring peace
Is tho fear on Austria's part that
her Serb and Slav population will not
remain loynl In tho event of hostili
ties, and tho weakness of her claim
iiK)ii Italy's help.
Tho peaco protocol was signed by
threo of tho allies and Turkey lato
Tuesday evening. It seems that tho
Greek delcgato did not sign nnd that
fact gives rlso to rumors of a realign
ment In which Roumanla may tako
tho placo of Greece.
Tho terms of tho cessation of
hostilities have not been divulged.
AN INTERESTING SUGGESTION
President elect Wilson is Raid to favor the postoneincnt of tho
festivities usually following the inauguration on March 4th, owing to
tho likelihood of inclement weather at that dato. His plan contem
plates simply tho President's taking tho oath on the -Itli. arrangem- i
being mndo for the festivities to occur ou and following April 30th,
tho (Into on which Washington was inaugurated.
It will be remembered that President Taft was sworn into office
in tho Senate Chamber owing to the severity of the weather. And
one President, William Henry Harrison, lost his life owing to a cold
contracted during the inaugural ceremonies. In view of these fads
tho President elect's suggestion will possibly meet with approval.
It would bo better, however, to havo the election earlier in tho
year, say in September, let tho inauguration occur about tho time of tho
election now, nnd the new Congress convene tho first week in Decem
ber or when the last session of tho old now convenes. From tho elec
tion in Novomber until tho inauguration, March 4th, is four months,
too long n time, as the country learned at the close of tho administra
tion of President Biiclmnnan, sud tho convening of the new Congress,
unless an extrn session is called, does not occur until thirteen months
after tho election.
If thvso changes could bo made, the will of tho people expressed
at tho polls would be more quickly carried out and no doubt the best
interests of the country better served.
Gain Control and Supervision

On tho other hand, nothing 5a moro certain than that by going
systematically to work WITH SUFFICIENT WILL POWER WE
MAY ESTABLISH GOOD HABITS and even substituto good hab

better than any ono clso I know of. "Thero is not a man," ho says,
"who reads theso lines but has in this detail or that proved in himself
that tho will forcing tho brain to repeat tho samo action again and
again can MODIFY THE SHAPE OF niS CHARACTER as
a sculptor modifies tho shape of damp clay."

Now, asks Mr. Bennett, if nine-tenths of a man's development is

satisfactory part of tho total result, why in tho nntno of common sense
honceforward should not nine-tenths instead of one-tenth bo duo to
