The sentiment of the country seems
to be most decidedly opposed to an
extra session of congress. If the
feelers that are being sent out from
Washington are for the purpose of de

be abandoned right now.

Indian territory border, in exactly
the same strip of country where the
general engaged in his last active
battle as an officer of the United
States army. In that engagement
Wen. Lee was wounded by an arrow,
which passed between his ribs and
penetrated his lungs.
When the army bill becomes a law
the president will have the appoint
ment of 3,ol4 officers including
lieutenant-general, four maior-gener
als, nine brigadier-generals, 870 staff
officers, and 2,922 line officers. The
new legislation wipes out the present
army and cancels the commission of
every officer, so that it will be neces

understood, however, that all of the
officers now holding commissions will
be reappointed to the same rank.

CHILD LABOR IN ILLINOIS.
The annual report of Louis Ar ring
ton, of Alton, chief inspector of fac
tories, shows that there is need in
Illinois of further legislation on the
question of child labor. According
to the figures of the report there are
now 14,356 children employed in the
factories of Illinois, and that the evil
is increasing is shown by the state
ment that the number has increased
to these figures from 9,259-in 1897.
Compared with the total number of
factory employes the number of chil
dren employed forms a small per
cent, but thev make an army in them
selves and the inspector says the con
ditions are bscoming worse each
year. Inspector Arrington takes the
school records of Chicago and shows
that of 25,715 children in school
at 11 years of age but 6.030 of them
remained in school at the age of 16,
and in his opinion this results In the
American standard 01 living being
lowered, as well as the adult American
laboring man being injured by unfair
competition, and the physical, moral
and mental efficiency of the rising
generation being impaired.
Seventy-Mve per cent of the children
employed in Illinois factories are em
ployed in Chicago, 6,225 boys and
4,609 girls less than 16 years of age
being counted on the Chicago rolls
The garment trades, the metal and
wood working industries and the
big stores all employ child labor by
the hundred. Outside of Chicago the
glass factories are the principal em
ployers of children.
The report points out that child la.
bor ruins wages and that the fathers
and mothers are often out of work
when the youngsters are employed
It is a grave problem and the sooner
it is settled, and settled right, the bet
THE CARPET BAGGER AGAIN.
The carpet bagger, says the Racine
Times, has caused more hard feeling
in the United States that can ever 'bo
told. The enmity of the south Jor
the norm, which crops out on all oc
casions, was not caused entirely by
the blood that was shed in battle, but
by the reign of the carpet bagger who
followed in the track of the war. It
mav have been impossible at the time
to have done otherwise than to send
the carpet bagger to the south the
old reconstruction days are not to be
considered now they have passed.
j. be mars oi the carpet bagger is
still on the land and tte clutches of
his fingers are still very evident in
the south where he operated for years.
There are few people in the north
who do not realize the injury done to
the south by the carpet bagger. The
marks and wounds of battle will pass
away long before the marks left by
the carpet bagger are erased from
the southern states. Every one who
has lived in the south or has studied
the southern states will agree with
this statement. It is a sad truth, learn
ed bv experience. We did not know
at the time how it could be avoided
and the best was done that could be
done. But why should we repeat the
experiment? Why should the people
of Porto Rico be overrun with carpet
baggers? Why should we send men
to rule- the beautiful, country who
have no knowledge of the country and
no interest in its well being?
The "upper house" of Porto Rico is
appointed by the president, and its
members, with the governor, compose
the executive council of the island,
which has the power to grant fran
chises. The "upper honse" in no way
represents the people of Porto Rico,
but are men who will leave the island
when their tenure of office expires, and
will return to the United States,
where they live. The executive coun
cil has granted franchises to a New
York firm, which proposes to cell
light and heat and to build a railroad
circling the island. This granting of
franchises has begun early "and will
continue late unless it is stopped by
some means that remains to be sug
gested. The people of Porto Rico will
pay for these things just as we nave
paid for them in certain localities in
this country. The syndicates and
trusts will control 'the executive com
mittee, and they will get all the fran
chises thy care to ask for. The mat
ter should be taken in band by con
gress and be stopped before the island
is placed under the odious rule of the

WORDS. - -

Be careful of their use. Vi'oo talks of hate.
Of poverty, of sickness, but sets rife .
These very elements to mar bis fate.

Their names repeated over day by day.
They wing their way like answerins fairies near,. ,
Then nestle down within our homes to stay.

This is the law; then let no word escape

Scribner's magazine for February
begins a new series of reminiscences of
theatrical life a form of article in
which it has been peculiarly fortunate
in the past, having published the rec
ollections of Lester Wallack and Mrs.
John Drew. "The Stage Reminis
cences of Mrs. Gilbert," which are
here begun, are full of vivacity, in
cident and entertaining recollections
of great actors of the past half cen
tury. Mrs. Gilbert is 80 years of age
and" has been on the stage for more
than 70 year3 of that time, beginning
as a dancer when a mere child at
Drury Lane. This installment first
gives some recollections of her child
hood, and then the narrative moves
to America, where Mrs. Gilbert and her
husband emigrated in 1849. Her rec
ollections of her experiences in Chi
cago, Milwaukee, bt. Lotus and other
western cities are very amusing and
give a vivid idea of the old stock com
panies of nail a century ago. It is re
markable that when Mrs. Gilbert
first appeared in New York she
came as a western' actress from
Cincinnati. These reminiscences.
which will run through three numbers
of the magazine, aie exact transcripts
of the conversations with her friend,
Mrs. Charlotte M. Martin, who has
been a most sympathetic editor. The
abundant illustrations have been se
lected from the wonderful collection
of Evert Jansen Wendell, and also
from Mrs. Gilbert's own souvenirs

were entering a polo match, and for
the same reason; it promises to be
dangerous, it is sure to be
exciting. That is all he asks. Theo

an! we hope the changes made will prove
beneficial to the country's Interests. In pel

changes. For instance, la regard to their

Old Apothecaries ana Doctors.
. The offenses of apothecaries in the
middle ages were numerous and the
punishment In some cases a whipping:.
The worst was the improper sale of
poisons that Is to say, except when
not duly prescribed by a known physi
cian of reputation, and even then not
to put down in a register the name of
the doctor and person .to whom such
prescription containing poison was de
livered, was punishable likewise. The
sale of poison for drugging flsh was
prohibited and also that of inferior
drugs by any apothecary. To prescribe
himself (unless a doctor could not be
found) was an offense punishable by a
whipping, and all preparations sold by
bim bad to be made up In the presence
of the doctor or of another apothecary.

for exterior applications "according to

the penalty in such a case. Gentle

PASSING OF THE BELL.

The solemn and impressive custom of
nnuouving death by the tolling of the
cliurcL bell will soon be but a vague
and distant memory. "The passing
boll" has itself passed away, and its
slow measured accents no longer toll
the story of the departure of one tuore
soul. The brief notice in the daily pa
per, while it conveys explicit informa
tion, fails to give something that the
bell's tolling carried with it. The sol
emn rhythmic tones awakened a, mo
mentary vibration in the breast of each
listener and bade each pause for sym
pathy and meditation. The bell ad
monished the sinner to repent and
warned the thoughtless that time was
llying while it spoke clearly and com
prehensively and bade all scattered
and preoccupied inhabitants attend its
The bell's voice is identified with all
the deepest and most sacred human
emotions. It has bespoken the joys and
sorrows of all mankind for centuries.
Is its voice to die away and have no
part in the life of the future? The
wedding bells ring out no more save
in some song or story. The Christmas
chimes are seldom wafted to our ears.
The church bells ring but faintly now
and under constant protest. "The cur
few tolls the knell of parting day" only
in verse. -A sunset gun today gives
greater satisfaction. - The angelus
sounds merely in pictorial form, the
fire bells give place to still alarms, the
dinner bell is silenced in polite society,
and sleigh bells are discarded.
What is the future of the bell that
