Rod Croat Christmas Seals.
Arrangements for the aala of Red
Cross Christmas Seals for 1910 have
been announced by the National As
sociation for the Study and Preven
tion of Tuberculosis and the Ameri
can Red Cross. "A Million for Tuber
culosis" will be the slogan of the 1910
campaign. Two features of the sale
this year are unique and will bring
considerable capital to the tuberculo
sis fighters. The American National
Red Cross Is to Issue the stamps as In
former years, but this organization
will work In close co-operation with
the National Association for the Study
and Prevention of Tuberculosis, which
body will share In the proceeds of the
soles. The charge to local associa
tions for the use of the national
stamps has been reduced also from 20
per cent to 12 V per cent, which will
mean at least $30,000 more for tuber
culosis work In all parts of the I'n'.teJ
States. The stamps are to be deslg
sated as "Red Cross Seals" this year
and are to be placed on the back of
.letters Instead of on the front

' Many years ago. In consequence of

the small farmers Jostled each other
In crowds to draw out their money.
Things were rapidly going from bad
to worse, when the bank manager. In
a fit of desperation, suddenly be

directions, a clerk, having heated some
sovereigns In a frying pan. paid them
over the counter to an anxious appli

the latter as he took them up. "Of
course," was the reply; "what else
could you expect T They are only Just
out of the mold. We are coining the m
by hundreds as fast we can."
"Coining them!" thought the almple
agriculturists; "then there Is no fear
of the money running short!" With
this their confidence revived, the pan

to weather the storm.

Miller, the governor of the most out

Ihe inspired upllfter of Its people, has

and where Is the man who w ill be able

This Is the question that Is facing
the Filipino government and the Bu
reau of Insular Affairs. This Is the
question that la bringing to light a
piece of work that has been carried
forward In the wilds of the great East
that Is as full of romnnce and accom
plishment as the moat fanciful yarn
ever Bpun by the Imagination.
For Lieut Miller, V. S. A , has for
eight years been absolutely ruler over
"4,000 people; wild, bnrbarie, tinchrla
tlon. He has single-handed brought
peace to those people In the place of I
continuous warfare. Ho has repelled
the Moro pirates In many pitched bat
tles, armed and drilled hU natives and
made his coasts a place to be shunned
of all else by these gypsies of the sea.
Yet Miller dle-i ingloriously a month
ago from falling overboard from a
boat In the still waters of an Inland
stream. The Moros have learned of
the nature of hla death In such a sim
ple emergency that any mere native
would have been able to save nlmseif.
The fear of him and his kind has con
sequently vanished and tho Moros are
again at war.

All of which leads to the story of
Lieutenant Miller. He was at the
time of his death a member of the
Tenty-nlnth Infantry, but had never
seen that regiment and was unknown
to Its officers. This because of the
fart that he had been, since the time
of his appointment, on detached duty
as governor of Pditan. At the
bnnking out of the Spanish-American
war he had been an officer In the Chi
cago militia and bad enlisted. Hla
service was with the Fifth Illinois
Volunteer Infantry and had first tak'n
him to Porto Rico and later to the
Philippines. He served In the outly

bered mountains store the uioloturu
which makes its vrllcys perennially

self to the spoliation of the Moro
pirates, who have swarmed through
Ihene waters for centuries and hnve
preyed continuously upon their na

of the valleys are wild but sweet na
tured and simple. They are the Tug

whom much h)p is expressed. Yet

plied with arms and drilled. HI aim
was the repelling of the Moros. Sallp
Aklb had long been the terror of the
coasts. The natives had bin incf
fective aa warriors and the trades
were at tho option of tho pirates.
Lieutenant Miller was well prepared
before he struck a blow.
Then one summer night tho news
was brought that the pimt were
ashore at a village up the coast and
the nntlves were being robbed of their
Mores and animals. The raiders had
gorged themselves, bad stolen a score
ol the pretty women of the settlement
for barter In other ports and were
carousing In the village. The gover
nor massed his constabulary and i rept
upon the town. The pirates were stir
prised, but expected an easy victory.
Hut they had reckoned without the
big American, who was a fiend when
aroused. His followers had been
drilled Into efficiency, but were yet
timid, not knowing their strength
when armed with American guns, luit
they followed their chief to battle In
fairly good part. The pirates were
cut to pli-res and the band broken up
The Amerlcnu that day won for him
self the title of "the demon." The
timid natives learned that they were
able to stand against their hereditary
enemy. The gratitude of the whole
community came to the governor. Re
rulta came to hi arms.
Tho band of Ballp Toml gave the
second big battle In the working out
of the problems of this Isoluted law
and order scheme. "The demon" met
this bund under similar conditions and
the results were the same. The timid
native found that .tbey could HkM
and that they liked It. They plai ed
themselves at the command of the
governor and did his bidding without
(uiestlon. They came to rail him king
and hi word was law. Tbey tarried
the tales if him to the end of the
Island and all the people proclaimed
him. None would have dared stand
against him. even had they not loved
