Mr. Maeterlinck's proposition is a
bold one, a happy one if it should

If discoveries in physical and mental
science can keep peace with one and
another, even Herbert Spencei^ could
hardly question the proposition of
The latter philosopher, following in
the wake of the great Darwin, has
taught us many things in the develop
ment of individual moral force. Even
he should, one would think, be able to
stand for this simple proposition ad
vanced by Maeterlinck:
"There is no reason whatever why
we should not know what will happen,
for everything that does happen must
of necessity exist before we become
aware of it. It must exist in some
form or other, and its existence must
be known to some one or other.

Meaning of Premonitions.
The records of psychical research
societies teem with cases in which
people have had peculiar premonitions

deal about the future. Men of more
than ordinary intelligence have diag

obtained have found that they could

•Without the ability to look into the
future the human brin is like a her

sea of life. The waters of fate throw
it here and there, tease it and play

"Fascinating as I found the study of
ancient miracle lore, I was still more
anxious to ascertain the attitude of
latter-day science with respect to these
things. L.et me say beforehand that
It has little or nothing of the boldness
of bygone days.
"The wish to know the future has no
longer any significance in the religious*
and political life of the nations. The
wonders of our own days and of the
past seemingly suffice to quench the
twentieth century man's thirst for
miracles. He hasn't the time to ask
what might be and what will be.
Merit of Fortune Telling.
"But instinct being stronger than rea

stiil exists, even though avoiding the

is some truth in every error of long
standing—the very survival of the er

various mediums of the power, or gift,

The performance' of Gold Heels was

President Roosevelt Is Much Heavier
Than He Was a Year Ago.
From the Globe's Washington Bureau,
WASHINGTON, D. C, July 5.—
President Roosevelt Is getting fat. He
weighs fully fifteen pounds more than
he did when he entered the White
house. It shows quite plainly, partic
ularly about his neck and jowls. His
face is fuller and redder than it was
last fall. His belt measure is also in
creased h,y more inches than he likes
to think about. The increase of adi
pose is attributed by Mr. Roosevelt to
lack of exercise. Being president is
more confining than Mr. Roosevelt's
previous occupations. He rides horse
back almost every day, but he is un
able to get in as much pedestrianism
and outdoor sports as aforetime. The
pressure of business and the demands
of people keep him at his desk and in
doors often when he would like to be
out. Only a few days ago he revolted
and took Gen. Wood and walked to
Alexandria and back. But he cannot
afford time for such trips often. The
president hopes to have more freedom
this summer at Oyster Bay, and ex
pects to get down to his fighting
Plenty of Work in Sight.
The president has got quite a lot of
work cut out for him as a result of the
session of congress just closed. The
isthmian canal matter will keep him
busy for a few months, and he is
charged by the Philippine civil govern
ment bill with another discretionary
function in determining when the Phil
ippines shall be ready for the exercise
of civic functions. Then he is auihor
ized to get up a native legislative as
sembly for them. It is not anticipated
that the Philippine legislature will be
convened In the near future; but the
law makes It the duty of Roosevelt to
at once inform himself of the facts in
this regard, and he may find it neces
sary to follow the Illustrious example
of his predecessor and appoint a com
Allison Snubs Bailey.
The day after the Bailey-Beveridge as
sault the young Texan walked over to
the Republican side of the house to have
a private word with Allison. Just as a
matter of habit Bailey reached out his
hand. With evident deliberation and de
termination the senator from lowa drew
his hand back and kept it out of reach.
The incident was very trifling, and was
probably not noticed by half a dozen per
sons; but it was significant of the feel
ing toward Bailey in the senate.
Young Mr. Bailey, of Texas, is what
Mr. Stevenson would have called a vio
lent man. He has no long, consistent
record like that of Hernando De Soto
Money, of Mississippi, for seeking and
finding personal encounters; but Bailey
has a past. The little autobiography in
the Congressional Directory notes that in
1884 Bailey was an elector on the Cleve
land and Hendricks ticket, in Copiah
county,.Mississippi. It also notes that in
1885 he left for Texas and took up his
permanent residence there. There are
some musty records on file in Washington
of a congressional investigation which
took' place into what are known as the
Copiah massacres, the same being cer
tain shotgun methods used at that time.
Anyone seeking light on the peculiar code
of honor among some sensitive Solons.
will find a flood of illumination in the
testimony taken at that hearing.
Spooner a Compromise Artist.
As a compromise artist Senator John
C. Spooner, of Wisconsin, is in a way
to gain fame. He has hitched his name
to the law which will build an isthmian
canal. Of course Morgan and Hepburn
did the work. Morgan particularly boio
the heat and burden of the day. though
he had passed his three score and ten. But
Spooner sat back and watched for the
opportune moment, when the discordant
factions might be brought together on
common ground; then he furnished the
ground. Thus the Morgan law became the
Spooner law. It was he who devised the
reciprocity bill in which the Republicans
of the senate all but came together. It
was his amendment which passed the
army bill during McKinley's administra
tion. John' is a very resourceful fellow.
