For Disappointed Authors
The editor of a monthly mnga.ino

would-be contributors whoo "oopy"
is rejected with the explanation that
ho is guided not by his pcr.sonnl approv
al or disapproval, but by a kind of
sixth sense derivqd from an "objective
study" of the taste of the magazine's
readers. lie remarks that tlte ideal
tnaga.ine editor should be possessed of
a hplrit m) finely tempered as to be re
sponsive to all the currents and counter
currents of the thinking world and thus
be able to discern desires and prefer
ences not necessarily his own. lie
claims that he often rejects manuscript
that pleases him personally. Thus does
ho shift responsibility from himself
to his conception of the shoulders of
the public. 'Thus does lie seek both to
disarm the disappointed author and to
conciliate the critical reader.

Cities end tho Census
Two cities in Massachusetts, Tall
JJher and Springfield, have made es
timates of their population preliminary
to thu regular census enumeration. Pall
River, basing its calculation upon as
sessors' returns, counts upon 115,000
inhabitants, as against 114,242 last
year. Springfield demes tho inference
from a new diiectory that it now has
at least 00,000 inhabitants, a consider
able gain. Fall Kier finds coirobora
tive evidence of increase in the fact
that iljere are 147 fewer vacant tene
ments than a year ago. Hut that may
be due to temporary variation of in
dustiial conditions. But these arq only
estimates, after all. One suggestion
that meets with favorable comment in
Massachusetts is that the national cen
sus bureau assigned a statistician of
one state to supervise tho enumeration
of another, thus lessening the possi
bility of local iufluouco upon the re
turns. In this way improper "boom
ing" of figures would be checked, con
troersics avoided, and doubts as to J
An English Caution Not Needed
It is suggested, among the comments
upon the recent assassination of a
British officer by an East Indian in
London, that just as socialistic agita
tion in England tends to foster native
discontent in India, similar ngitation in
the United States may provoke insurrec
tion in the Philippines. But this coun
try has been through one experience, in
tho practice of free speech and a free
pen, -with the "anti-jmperialist" agi
tation. One brief campaign sufficed to
show that the popular conception of
the American mission in the archipela
go is ono of conviction that it cannot
be chniged with oppression or with (he
loss of lihorty, but that its purpose
is to establish civilization firmly, in
crease economic production, protect
life, and develop capacity for local
self-government. That promises to be
a long task', but it is one that the
United States assumed as a part of its
duty, not alone to itsolf, but to the
rest of the world. .Nor is there any
dread, in this country of the visits for
educational purposes of Filipino stu
dents. But American statesmanship
does not hesitate to learn whatever it
may from the experience of British
rule in the Orient.
meal. Anything made of flour and pre
tending to be cither a johnny fake or
a hoe cake is an impostor. It may be
eatable, but it is not a johnny cake or
a johnny cake's little biotlier, Tho
johnny cake, of course, gets its name
from tho fact that it is so easily con
structed that it was originally dubbed
a journey cake, and "journey' was
colloquiali7cd into 'johnny.' "
Virginia Fanners Prosper
The report of the state commissioner
(of agriculture of Virginia shows grati
! fying progress. In ton years truck
farming has increased fiOO per cent,
fruit gaining 1.10 per cent and the hay
crop 100 per cent. The canning indus
try 'is growing, this business in one
county last year amounting to nearly
$i,000,000. Many small farmers are
canning vegetables. Intensive farming
is improving the soil. Mote and better
live stock is kept on the farms. .Apple
orchards are incie.ising rapidly. Thu
value of the fruit crop this year, $'),
000,000 will soon exceed that of wheat.
The corn crop is valued at :i0,000,000.
It is predicted that ten years more of
such progress will place Virginia among
the leading agricultural states. Diver
sity of crops, liberal fertilization, and
. improved farming methods account for
these developments. The need for more

Avoirdupois and Art
It was a bold and imaginative stage
minstrel who essayed the task of mak
ing nn aiiy, fairy Salome dancer out
of a professional fortune teller weigh
a'ng 'JiiO pounds. But his imagination
had its piactical side. All ho wanted
in return for his etlieiealiration of her
too solid flesh was that the prophetess
should brfck his show with leal money.
In other words, he wanted the material
seeress to be his angel. She consented,
but when the company went on a tour
in the fastnesses of New Jersey the
unresponsive public rofused to Hock I
to the box office. Tho result was that
tho substantial Salome grew weary of
her contract. Sho refuse both to dance
and to pay the piper. The result was
a lawsuit, on the giound that it must
have been a false representation that
induced a lady of so much avoirdupois
to believe that she could be airy, fairy,
light, or fantastic. The court was per
plexed, but decided to permit the min
strel to wander in freedom. Tho moral
of whivh is that it is easier to part
with dollars than with flesh, or else
that tho ambitious aspirant mistook her
role and should have taken up the vo
cation of a professional fat lady.
Matrimony Across the Border
Cupid langlm at boundary lines as

the Gretna Oreon of flitting bridal
couples after the enactment of mar

condition in tho state of Washington is
sending American couples across tho
northern border into British Columbia
to have tied the knot of matrimony.

A Culinary Debate
There has been much discussion
among southern newspapers as to the
exact made of diffeionee between
Johnny cake and hoe cake. There have
been publishd many diverse commute
cations from housewives upon the HMih
ject, and the amiable controversy has
raged in type from the Potomac to the.

summarizes some of these opinions, and
undertakes to end the debate with this
authoritative decision, which will bo of
interest to many culinary exports:
"The johnny cake and the hoe cake
are both made of corn meal and baked.
Tho johnny cake is more elaborate,
that's all. A hoe cake is composed of
meal, water, and salt, and is so named
because it used to be baked on a hoe.
A johnny cake may be made with milk
instead of water, and may have other
variations, except as to the basis of

AMENDING THE HUMAN RACE
Surgery of the present day is not at all dis
mayed by the somewhat discouraging maxim
that man is fearfully and wonderfully made.
The knife lias entered upon a course of extirpa
tion that promises to eliminate, even if by
heroic methods, some of the ills that flesh is
heir to. Already it has become a not infrequent
operation to remove tho vermiform appendix in
early childhood, in order to do away with the
possibility of perilous appendicitis in adult life.
But progress is the onward cry of science. It
has become elementary to live usefully with one
lung or one kidney. That is only taking ad
vantage of a duplicate precaution of" nature.
Tho removal of the stomach, once ci loTi in the
text-books as wonderful, has become a well
known, if infrequent, expedient' that merely en
tails upon the subject attention to a diet re
strieted in variety.
But nowT an authority upon bacteria, Pro
fessor Alefchnikoff, finds that the ailments of
advancing tige are due largely to poisoning by
maleficent germs which have their habitat in
the large intestine. The logical inference is ob
vious. If man may prolong life without that
organ, away with it! There is confirmation of
this doctrine in the further investigations of
Dr. Distaso, who has collected and compared a
number of.recorded cases of this operation. Two
recent subjects have received this particular
study. He has found their bacteriological status
of an exceptionally desirable order, and he is
convinced that they tire destined to live far
longer than they could have done if the had re
tained all of their original internal apparatus.
As ti result, it is stated that he advocates the
universal extirpation of this part of the ma
chinery of the human race.- Jt would be a dar
ing conjecture "to predict what surgeons of the
future may spare as essential to keep togelher

OSLER AT SIXTY
Professor Osier is to be congratulated on
having reached his sixtieth birthday, not, only
hale and useful, but unconcerned over the weird
windings of the Osier legend, from which there
is for him no escape, wherever he may go.
: Alany a good man who has said a less sensi
ble thing than Professor Osier said, and who
has had it distorted in less maddening ways,
has gone to pieces under the strain. AVildly try
ing to convince the world that he never said
what he was alleged to have said, and tilting
ever at windmills of a nation's jesting, he has
soured or weakened in the end.
Not so Osier. For him there has not even
been an effort at denial; he has laughed With
Hie laughers. When the talk is about chloro
form at' sixty he has appreciated the j )ke as
'much as anybody. If anybody wants to believe
that that is the Osler'advice to the world, the
professor is willing. ,
Such being the case, thisparticular sixtieth
birthday at any' event may safely be said to
have been passed in serenity and efi.se.
The example is a good one to. many a serious
young man who shows less elasticitv at thirtv
or forty than Osier does sif sixtv.
