THIRD TEBH TAKING BOOT.
The third-term idea, according to a
prediction credited to Mr. Depew. is
taking root. Who else, in 1905, will
be so well qualified, to carry on the
increasingly corrp'ex affairs of the
United States as Mr. McKinley, it is
asked. Should prosperity continue
through the second term, should the
relations with Cuba be happily ad
justed, should the Philippines be
thoroughly pacified, then, in the opin
ion of Mr.McKinley 's closest friends,
it is said, there will be a universal
popular demand that he continue in
otliie. Meanwhile it is pointed out
that the supreme court has decided
that the constitution does not follow
the Hag, that a republic can have col
onies and subjects, and that the Amer
ican nation can subjugate those who
desire to be free. As the republican
Chicago Journal puts it: "Our gov
ernment now is an imperial power."
And thas the plain, simple republic
of Washington, Jefferson and Lincoln
is to give place to a stroDg" govern
ment whose executive power will have
illimitable and whose corner stone
must be militarism.
In that event McKinley, the man
who revolutionized cur STstein of gov
ernment. It is to be argued, should be
given a third term.
And after that what?

years we have degenerated from con
sistent observance of our original
republican principles to a direct re
pudiation of those .principles. The
spirit which declares that our gov
ernment can rule subject peoples as
inferior races, denying them the
rights of citizenship in the republic
whose Hag floats over them, is the
spirit of the spurious republic of
Home, whose conquered subjects
were made to feel that; Romans alone
were entitled to f reedd m.
This is empire on an essentially
Roman basis, creating; an aristocracy
of citizenehip utterly hostile to the
cre9d taught by the patriots of the
American revolution. It sanctions
foreign conquest and the forcible gov
ernment of weaker people to whom
we stand in the relation of the super
ior and controlling force. Under our
original teaching they have equal
lights with us, but these rights may
cow be withheld from them on the
ground that they are dependent and
inferior races. This is the teaching
of Caesar's Rome. It is only under
such teaching that wa can follow tne
example of Rome and become an em.
inre masquerading as a republic.

Fpu the remotest ages the ocg has
boon looked uron as the symltol of cre
ation, or new birth. According to the
Persians, the world was hatched from
au egg at that (season of'the year which
corresponds to the vernal equinox
Hence the I'arsees still exchange gifts
of colored eggs at the new year festi
val, which they celebrate at this date.
Among the Jews the egg entered into
all the mysterious ceremonies called
apocalyptic and occupied a prominent
position on the household table during
the paschal season. Christianity in
vested the paschal egg with a new sig
nificancenamely, that of the resur
rection of Christ, and it was colored
red in allusion to his blood t-hed fo!
sinners on the cross.
A curious custom in mediaeval church
es. for priests and choristers to join iu
a game of ball at Eastertide, took its
rise from the Easter egg, which was
thrown from one to the other of the
choristers in the nave of the church
while an anthem was being suug. As
a missed egg meant a smashed egg, the
more durable handball was substituted
But the Mnashing of eggs continued
as a form of outdoor sport. Survivals
are to be found among all Teutonic
and Anglo-Saxon people. A popular
game In England and Germany con
sists ia hitting one egg against anoth
er, the egg that survives uucracked
winning for Its owner the weaker an
tagonist, until an entire basket of eggs
may have changed ownership. Anoth
er game is to trundle eggs down a hill
or slope, those which reach the bottom
uncracked being similarly victorious
over the others.

these a penurlousness In money mat

Illustrative of this failing to be tacked
upon hlui. One of these related to a
certain church conference which the
bishop and other dignitaries of the
church at one time attended.
"At one of the meetings the bishop
in endeavoring to open a letter neatly
with his penknife was so unfortunate
as to allow the latter to slip and to
cut a finger severely. The injured
member bled profusely, and a hasty
search for court plaster ensued. There
being none forthcoming, a clergyman
standing by fished out his cardcase
and, extracting from It a 5 cent stamp.
the smallest priced stamp he had, of
fered It to the bishop to use as a sub
stitute for the much needed court plas
"The bishop accepted It gratefully
and in bis turn took out his own card
case. In it he placed the 5 cent stamp
and then, producing a 1 cent specimen
of his own, he pasted it over the still
bleeding wound." New York Tribune.
