. ' Indian Ridge, says Alvan F. Sanborn,
speaking of a typical New England
community in The Atlantic, has all the
defects of all its qualities, and possibly
some others besides. It is narrowly par
tisan in its politic': gossiping and med
dllng in its temper toward matters of
purely private concern; religion, here
as elsewhere, ia spite of a general
wholesomcncss, is not entirely free
from hypocrisy, morality from inhu
manity and self complacency, integrity
from cruel hardness, nor thrift and fore
sight from parsimoniousness and worry.
It is very liulo alive to the finer issue
of country living. Most of them are not
so much as snrpectrd by it For all the
, mutual helpfulness and abounding sense
ot humor, tbe lifo lacks flexibility, mel
lowness, warmth, emotion and emotion
al expression. It is indisputably triste.
Nevertheless Indian Ridge exempli
fies tho best tendencies ot the New Eng
land country. These tendencies, owing
to its comparative isolation, have been
manifested in unique and homely ways
in some instances, but tho tendencies
are none the less sound and healthy on
thai account Tbeyare present to a con,
siderable if not an equal degree, not in

instead of a smalTpart or these commu
nities were even thus liberally endow
ed, there could be no plaint over the
decadence of rural New England, for
they have in them the garma of perma
nent progress. Hither Oner are them
selves the very essence of corporate life.
Tesla once made a remark which was
full of the spirit of future progress in
the matter of lighting. "It is of not
little interest " he said, "to contem
plate that we have m poaribte way of
producing by other than chemical
means a veritable flame waiich would
give light and beat without any materi
al being consumed, without any chem
ical process takinz place, aa.d to accom
plish this we only need to perfect meth
ods of producing enormous frequencies
These words of Mr. Tttua contain a
suggestion the full meaning of which
has lately been more tbotnoghly under
stood. To produce something from noth
ing has ever been a great tinman problem
not always solvable. H ere is a scien
tist pointing out a sclent iflo way of ac
complishing the feat Tl m hidden mean

His words would seem t o intimate' that

An English statistician rays there is
not much of a psychological mystery in
the fact that bo xaany more people com
mit suicide in summer than in winter,
and be does not think that the differ
ence is in any Lvge measure dne to the
direct effect of told npon human minds
and bodies. It rnurst be borne in mem
ory, be saye, that) drowning is the com
monest method of self destruction and
resort to it is difficult or impossible
when rivers and fx aids are covered with
ice. This accounts for a part of the de
crease. Another part Is explained by
the circumstance tf mt in cold weather
jv&ople live more in association, and
t here is thus less opportunity for com-
ntttting suicide. Be does not. think,
htnrever, that it is possible to explain
th matter wholly without reference to
the depressing effixts of cold on the
net vous system and the exciting effects
of heat. It requires some energy and
determination to commit suicide, and
this is lacking in a person suffering
from extreme cold, .111 these considera
tions, working together, the result is
that xaany people c. sdure through the
winter a life which i bey have ceased to
value and throw it a way when the sea
son comes in which the material diffi
culties in the way if continued exist

Hon. John Bussell Young, a former
United States minister to China, re
gards General Grant's part in arranging
a treaty of peace between China and
Japan as one of the shining achieve
ments of his career. Writing of "When
Grant Went Keind the World" in The
Ladies' Home Journal, Mr. Young says
Prince Kung, then a sort of regent for
China, in- his conversations at Peking
with General Grant, talked with ear
nestness upon the relations between Chi
na and Japan. This led to a message
from the prince to the mikado, an ex
traordinary incident little known in the
histories, and the .whole business in
time to be so managed by the general
that war between the two nations was
postponed. "At Nikko, Japan, General
Grant met the Japanese ministers, who
came by the mikado's command, to dis
cuss Wjth him the message be had
brought from Prince Kung and Li Hung
Chang. Count I to, secretary of the in
terior; Count Saigo, the minister of
war; Count Inouyo, foreign minister.
and Mr. Yoshida, the Japanese envoy
to VV ashmgton, composed the embassy.
They sat in a little temple (the after
noon sultry, a thunder storm rattling
among the hills) and discussed the is
sues. In the end was a letter addressed
to Prince Kung and the Japanese prime
minister, containing suggestions which
were accepted by both governments. It
was a basis of peace not to be broken
for many years. So it will be seen that
there were useful days, as well as days
of pageantry, in Japan. General Grant
in time became not alone the friend but
the companion of the mikado and his

There was a bold, bad man making
things hot in a Texas town a few days
ago. He wore long hair, a deerskin
hunting suit, a big sombrero, and be
was waving a small fieldpiece in his

in ana get pulverized.
He had bis back against the court
house, and the city marshal and the po
lice argued with him from the middle
of the street and dodged every time he
svning bis howitzer in their direction.
Lota of citizens had turned out to wit
ness the performance, and it looked for
awhile as if the bad man had the whole
town against the ropes.
Presently a little, weak kneed drum
mer from Connecticut, who was amona
the crowd, adjusted his spectacles for a
closer look at the desperado, and then
before anybody could stop him he gave
a yell and started for the bad man at a

the little drummer nnbbed him and said

closed in, and the desperado went off
with them as gentle as a lamb.
When the little drummer was ques
