order was immnediately followed by one

that General Eagan had been placed on
the retired list on his own application
after 3G years service.

Washington, Dtc. 7.-The vacancy
created by the retirement of Brigadier
General E igan will enable the president
to carry out his purpose of of appointing
Colonel John E. Weston assistant com
missary general of subsistence, to be
commissary general. Lieutenant Colonel
Weston served wiih distinction in a
Kentucky regiment of the volunteer
army in the civil war, he was made a
brigadier general of volunteer and served
with distinction in the Santiago cam
Appointed Assoeiate Justice.
Washington, Dec. 7.-The nomination
of Daniel H. McMillan to be associate
justice of the supreme court of New
Mexico bus been sent to the senate in
place of Silas Alexander, who by some
inadvertence was named for the place
earlier in the week.

with an amendment making the act

days thereafter. All substitutes and
amendments by the minority were de

May IMkes a Protest.
Washington, Dec. 7. -The state de
partment has received a formal protest
from R. H. May, the American engineer
who was forcibly detained in Ouatamala
against the proceedings of the ffl5oial
Bill fer Metre System..
Washington, Dec. 7.-The bill of Rep
resentative Shafroth of Ool~ rdo, for the
adoption of the metric system by the
United States, has been referred to the
house committee on weights and
A Rc of 34 .t.pe.
When a clock goes wrong to the gov
ernment building. It runs on ragtime ab
til the Janitor of the builking reports to
the assistant engineer, the assistant to
the chief engineer and the engineer to
the custodian. Then a letter is written
to the custodian of all the government
stone buildings in Washington. It pass
es down through department after de.
partment and becomes a part of a dusty
pile of official documents which are serl
occasionally turned over to the chlef
clerk of some department and distributed
among the overworked clerks. In the
fullness of time, while the clock either
refuses to run at all or runs on any old
time, a report comes back to Detroit, is
received by the custodian and goes down
the line whence it came. Finally the
Janitor sends for a jeweler.
In the case of two clocks In Judge
Swan's office some months ago and the
process of official digestion of a request
for a 50 cent repair job two months pass
ed before the government order finally
reached the clockmaker. Three weeks
ago a clock In the office of District At
torney Gordon stopped because one of
the weights went wrong. It will cost 23
cents to fix the broken string, but no
one dares touch it." Meanwhile official
paper and time are being wasted in the
routine of consideration of so weighty a
problem and the office has no timepiece.
First AiS t tthe Injured.
The halue of teaching of first aid to the
injured is illustrated almost every day,
but in no ease more aptly than in that of
a brakeman on the Erie railroad who fell
from his train. A leg was eaut off by the
car wheels, but, with admirable presenct
of mind, the man constructed a tourni
quet with his handkerchief and knife
whereby he stopped the hemorrhage.
Even in this condition he built a fire in
order to warm himself and awaited the
next train, which he signaled. He was
taken aboard and to a hospital.
We trust that the time will come when
sohool t'hildren in the upper grades may
be taught so much of "applied physiolo
gy" as will enable them to act sensibly
in the case of the thousand emergencies
sure to take place in after life with them
selves or their fellows. It is strange that
almost all tay people "lose their heads"
in accidents and injuries and do precise
ly'what should not be done. This iespe
cially true when hemorrhage is present.
Many people either faint or are seised
with panic at the mere sight of blood, a
possible echo of primitive barbaric blood
rites and blood frenzies.
To supplant this loss of control by calm
and intelligent action according to the
ciracmstances and condition is one of the
duties we owe to the coming generations.

The S; ill watt.r arrived at Port Barrios,

afternoon. Mr. May's health for some
tim.' has been anything but good and he
arranged to make a visit to this country
for the necessary medical treatment.
Acting under the requirements of the
law of that country, he made the neces

turned over to F. W. G. Fnqu:s,who was
to represent Mr. May and stand respon

cured, together with a passport from the
command - of the port, but word was
doubtless sent to the capital that May
was about to leave and orders cacme from
the president to detain them.
As May walked out on the wharf to
the gangplank and startbd up to the
ship, a man in citizen's clothes stoprd
him. An officer of the army then c~e..
