America will first pass the 100-mile
mark or Kuroje. American ' locomo

very fast. But (iermany is moving

On the famous little piece of rail
road between Berlin and Zossen, ex
periments looking in this direction
are interestingly reported by Consul
General Mason. They were conduct
ed last November,, and a speed of 03
miles an hour was actually attained
with entire safety. The speed was
increased to a little over 1J miles an
hour and then it was found that the
Aossen roadbed was not strong
enough to "stand the racket." This
amounts to a demonstration that,
given a strong enough roadlel, 10O
miles an hour is certainly not the lim
it of safe travel byvthe electric rail
road of the future. That- l."0 miles
an hour mav even be reached is infer
red from Mr. Mason's remark that
mere is "no longer a doubt that, giv
en sufficient voltage, the current
could le got into the car for any
s)eed that.inight le desired." At any
rate. Yankee inventive skill should 1m?
the first to devise a roadbed strong
enough to lear the strain of the mile
and-a-half-a-miniite speed already
realized but with danger of derail
ment on the l'erliii-Zossen line.

Major Cornelius Gardener, 1. S.
civil governor of the province of
Tayabas, created a sensation by his
report upon the Philippines. This
report was held back by Secretary
Boot until demanded by congress,
and was not only the Ircisis of Gen
eral Miles statements in his famous
plan f pacification, but the cause of
all the trouble in congress over the
Philippines. He thinks Americans
are provoking revolution.
A writer in the World's Works gives
tis some interesting epigrams of Dav
id Starr Jordan:
You can't fasten a $5,(O0 education
upon a 50 cent boy.
The football field is safer for young
men than the ballroom.
If an educated man is unfitted to
take a practical hold on life he is not
worth educating, or the education
is a misfit.
The remedy for oppression is to
have strong men who cannot be op
pressed. The problem of life is not to make
life easier, but to make men stronger.
Secretary Wilson of the depart
ment of agriculture sounds a note of
warning of the approaching destruc
tion of the largest and most valuable
American forests. He recently made
a trip through the south and makes
the statement that the great pine for
ests are rapidly disappearing before
the ax of the lumber- man. Secre
tary Wilson's department is cognizant
of the fact that the exhaustion of
the timber in the south is near at
hand; that a suitable means of pro
fitably cultivating the land must be
determined in the near future.
Secretary Wilson, in a recent report,
says: "Before it is too late a new
agricultural industry must take the
place of the old. Cutting timber for
the market and for turpentine and
like products yields an immense in
come to the south, but the end is in
sight; the pine lands of Georgia and
Florida are being denuded and are
sure to vanish, just like those of
Minnesota and Michigan.'

When Mnry Bamnrd and I were
schoolfellows, we were lovers. When
Mary came to be eighteen. I was twen
ty-one. She had matured more rapidly
than I. who still bore traces of the boy.
Mary's parents were thinking of her
settlement for life, and I was not yet
thinking of making u beginning, for 1
had not finished studying my profes
sion. A prominent and wealthy man
of forty named Disbrow was paying
her attention. It was plain that he
would be acceptable so far as the par
ents were concerned, and 1 could not
detect any unwillingness on Mary's
part. Our relationship had changed
after leaving school. We no longer
spoke from the heart, and I would not
think of asking her how she liked her
All doubt as to the result was nt last
removed by the announcement of her
engagement to Mr. Disbrow. .Her par
ents showed plainly that they were
much pleased, uud Mary well, nt times
1 thought she seemed sad. nt others
satisfied. Meanwhile an elaborate trous
seau was being provided and prepara
tions were making for the wedding.
On the day 1 returned from the law
school, having finished my studies, the
cards for Mary's wedding were distrib
uted. 1 did not go to see her. remain
lug at home in great despoiideucy. 1
can remember no meutal anguish In my
.fa so sharp ns thinking of Mary Bar
nard the wife of another. Ojie morn
ing It was the day before the wed
ding I received a note from her ask
ing if her old schoolfellow would not
call and say goodby to her as a maiden
and Intimating that she would be at
home at 4 o'clock that afternoon. I did
not wish to go. I saw nothing to be
gained bygoiug. Nevertheless I was
still boy enough to hope that some In
terosltioti might save her from the
monster Disbrow. as I considered uliu,
and keep her for me. At the appoiuted
hour 1 called.
Instead of Mary coming to receive
me. her mother walked In very 6titU
and very coldly.
"Mary is too busy to eve you.'!, she
said, "and has asked me to excuse her
to you.. She hopes to see you at the

few minutes later Ly Mary herself,
who came into the drawing room. Her
mother gave her an angry glance, mut
tered something about leaving things
undone, then settled herself In her
chair to be present nt the Interview.
What was my surprise to see Mary
leave the whole of the conversation to
her mother and me. taking up a book,
which she read during the whole of
my call. Meanwhile she was fingering
an ivory paper cutter with a penknife
on one eud. 1 was so distressed and
incensed that had it not been for my
pride 1 would have left the house at
once; but. desiring to show her that 1
was as cold as she. I conversed gayly
with her mother. When I rose to
leave, Mary handed me the book she
had been reading, recommending it
ns one that would interest me. On
reaching my room I looked at the title,
and when 1 saw that it was "How to
Get on In the World" I threw It into a
corner and. sinking on a lounge, buried
my face iu my hands.
It was growing dark when I got up.
took the book from the corner and.
striking a light, began to run over tha
leaves mechanically. Why I did so 1
don't remember, except that the dear
bands of the girl I loved had so recent
ly held it. 1 noticed under one of the
words a cut. On the next page was
another. Glancing back nt the first. I
saw that it was "Why." The second
was "have." Turning the pages rapid

the sentence, "Why have you deserted
There were but five words, but they
were enough. Was It too late? Only
twenty-four hours before the wedding!
What could I dp? To call nt the house
and tell her oCmy love would hardly
be practicable, for her mother would
scarcely brook a second call so soon
after the first and would be present, as
before. Taking the book she had lent
me. I underscored the words: "My
schoolboy love is a man's love. Find
some way to delay the wedding or
break off the match entirely." The
same evening I sent a messenger with
the book and a formal note, unsealed,
thanking her for lending it to me and
wishing her great happiness lu her
