Senator Hoar talked like a patriot

tisan. The haste of the Cuban congress to
pardon all American criminals on the
island is very suggestive. Hut who
suggested it first?
President Talma is already stuck
in the cabinet department. Ills mfn-

liryan. on Illinois Politics.
Ilrvan'.s Commoner savs in its last
issue: "The republican state conven
tion of Illinois nominated Congress
man Allwrt .1. Hopkins to succeed
Senator William K. Mason. Senator
Mason declares he will make a light
in the legislature, and while he ex
presses some confidence in the result
it can hardlv le doubted that Mr.
Mason will be retired to private life.
Uecently the public has not heard
much from Senator Mason with rela
tion to his views ou the quest ion of
imperialism. At one tLmei.j.Mr.
Mason made :t very strong
fight against the colonial pol
icv, but recently he has shown a- dis
position toward repentance, and yet
he seems to have sinned away his
days of grace. Senator Mason would
have done far better for himself had
he consistently maintained his oppo
sition to un-American policies. Per
haps he would have been defeated,
but he would have retired with the
consciousness that he had exerted
his best efforts toward keeping this
government in line with its traditions.
There will be a marked difference be
tween the standing of William K. Ma
son, defeated after he showed a dis-
Msition to compromise with the en
emies of American principles, and
William K. Mason had he leen defeat

The Volcanoes of the Philippines,
Of interest in connection with the
recent volcanic eruptions in the West
Indies is the report of (ieorge K.
Decker on the geology of the Philip
pine Islands which has just apiearetl
in the report of the I'nitcd States
(eological Survey, and which con
tains a review of everything learing
tilon the geology of these islands.
The report deals in general with
the geologic and economic features
of the islands, from extant reports on
the subject, anil from studies in the
field, so far as they could be carried
on durinjr the disturbed eriMl of
1 .sus-'liii. though geologizing under
arms and with a military escort was
found to lie more exciting that profit
In many respects the Philippine is
lands so closely resemble the West
Indies. esecially in being the. scene
of violent past and present vol
canic energy, that the chapter of the
report on Ihe active and extinct vol
canoes of the archiieIago is at this
time particularly interesting. While
it was Hissible to visit but few of
these mountains owing to the hos
tility of the natives, much valuable
information from local and other
sources was collected. Fortv-niiie of
Ihe eruptive mountains were located
among the islands, and their alti
tudes and the dates of their eruj
tions obtained. Conspicuous among
them is Mt. Apo, the highest moun
tain in the Philippines, which rises
lO.Tfil feet above the level of the sea.
At Camiguin de Mindanao, one of the
must interesting .volcanoes of the
group, a cone nearly 2.000 feet in
height, has risen since 171 over what
was formerly a lake, the basin of
which was presumably an ancient
crater. Mayon. or the volcano of
Albay, is said to be the most sym
metrically beautiful cone in the
world; and the famous Taal volcano,
situated on a small volcanic island in
the lake of Donbon. is readily acces
sible from Manila.
The accounts of the eruptions of
these and other volcanoes of the
group bear a striking resemblance to
those of the recent outburst of Mt.
I'elee in Martinique. Of an eruption
which occurred in the year 1641 near
Jolo the report quotes: "The dark
ness and atmospheric disturbance
were so great that the people of Jolo
could not perceive whence came the
stuff which fell from heaven upon
them." And in one of the numerous
eruptions at Taal loud detonations
like discharges of artillery were
heard, incandescant stones were
thrown out, and agreat fire ran like
thrown out, and a great fire ran like
then shifted into lake Donbon throw
ing up water and ashes in immense
masses. "The water grew hot and
black, fish were strewn on the
beaches as if they had -been cooked,
and the air was so full of sulphurous
smells and the odor of dead fishes
that the inhabitants sickened." At
one of the eruptions of Albay, that
in 1814, lItfb lives are said to have
In drawing comparisons between
the volcanoes of the Philippines and
those of the Dutch Kast Indies, Mr.
Decker notes that "Papandayang, in
West Java, had a great eruption in
1772, destroying 40 villages. Galung
(Jung in 1S22 destroyed 114 villages
and it is some measure of the violence
of the Krakatoa explosion of 1883,
that over 00,000 people perished."

A Strange Cause
Abrom riart was doing picket duty
In the south in 1SG3. A girl, a mere
chit of fifteen, came tripping along and
without asking permission was pro
ceeding to pass the picket southward
"Ilalt, there!" cried A I van.
'I'm goin' down the road thar, Mr.
Sojerman, an I'd like to see yoa Una
stop me. I tolo Majj I'd see her thl
mornin' an help her trim her hat."
"Vou can't pass here," said Alvan.
"I'm goin anyway." And she sterped
forward. Alvan planted himself iu the
road before her. The girl, seeing that
he was determined, turned and disap
peared in the rear among the trees.
About 5 o'clock lu the afternoon AI
van saw a figure, coming up the road
nud. when It drew near who should it

"How did you get through?" he ask
The f.'irl puckered up her mouth at
him, the only reply she deigned to
"You can go In," he told her. "It's
only those who wish to pass out we're
ordered to slop."
"Who axed you to go in?" she snap
ped, "making a face" at him as hho
tripped by. Then he noticed how home
ly she was. She was freckled: her hair
was the same color as the freckles mid
was worn in a pitfall down her back
her nose was a pug; her teeth were her
only attractive feature, being white
and regular; her eyes were a sled blue
and might have been well enough had
it not Ik-cu for the spitef illness in
them. She passed on, but before mak
ing a lK'iid iu the road turned and look
cd at him scornfully. Alvan laughed
and threw her a kiss, whereupon she
clawed the air with her fingers, iutl
Hinting that she would be p loused to
scratch out his eyes.
Alvan Hart marched southward as
far as the Tennessee river, then march
cd back to Louisville. After that he
marched to the sea and wheu the war
was ended marched home. Ten years
later he was a business man whose in
terests lay largely iu the south,- Hav
ing decided to open a branch in Atlan
ta, he went there to establish It him
self. During hi;j stay he made the ac
quaintance of a very attractive young
womau with Titian hair and expressive
blue eyes. He fell desperately in love
with her and married her. The day aft
er the wedding Mrs. Hart was telling
of wartime incidents and recounted the
very scene between the redheaded chit
of lifteen and the young soldier who
had stopiH?d her while he was ou picket
duty, the redheaded chit lieing herself,
Hart was astonished. Could it be that
he had married that little vixen? He
concluded to conceal his own identity.
"How did you go out through the
lines?" he asked.
There was a shallow gully near by
I got dowu un my hands uud knees and
crawled through it."

Natural depravity, I reckon. I re

and he felt disposed to grin and bear it.
He feared to let her know that he was
the soldier who had stopped her in the
road lest shu should reduce him still
further to subjection. However, one
evening when they were both feeling
especially happy the husband went up
to the garret, got his soldier boy nnl-

belt and cartridge box about his waist.
not forgetting his canteen, took up his
musket and, going down stairs, stood
in the door of the sitting room with a
determined look on his face and his
musket pointed at his wife.
Mrs. Hart looked tip. There was no
