The Blood Ked Banner.
Royal aud national colors vary with
nations and times; but since Cain slew
Abel blood red has been the sign of re
volt In tbe earliest revolt known to
history, when the Persians rose against
ineir King 4,uuu years ago, they were
led by a blood red banner, and during
tbe riots which took place in Paris the
men in the blood red caps were follow
ed by the mob.
A blood red flag waved over Bunker
Hill when the Americans fought us for
liberty, and it was the emblem of tbe
German peasants in their great upris
ings in 1424. 14'J2 and 1023. Blood red
was the color of the trade union flags
during the middle ages, aud it formed
the background of the emblem of the
Swiss confederacy in 131.".
Through the whole of French aud
every other national history those
striking in their own ways for liberty

ed tbe blood red banner as their leader.
it is a curious ract that never has a
monarch chosen it as bis color. It bas
been left sacred to revolutionists. Lou-

Boy Bnblea nnd City Life.
Cities are more favorable to women.
for statistics show that more boy
babies die under 6 months in cities
than girl babies. Families, according
to the statistics, are larger in cities
than In the country. There are more
marriages !n proportion to the popula
tion in cities than in tbe country, and
also more divorces. Tbe foreign popu
la tion in cities is being eliminated, and
in 20 years from now we shall
practically have nothing but American
