RECKLESS AND UNSAFE
Roosevelt's Policy as Outlined
In His Cuban Letter.
CONTRARY TO COMMON SENSE.
John Sharp William JlnsoUni
' la Too Weak a Word to Uekcrlbr
the President's I ttrranren H .
terta Better Eiprectei Them.
1 John Sharp William", Democratic
leader of the house, commenting In the
Hew York World on I 'resident Uoose
kVelt's jingo letter to the Cuban inde
pendence celebration, nays among other
The most absolutely Indefensible
thmg which the president says Is this:
'It a nation pays its obligations, then it
need fear no Interference from the
United .States. The necessary infer
ence Is that if a nation does not pay
Its obligations then It must 'fear in
terference from the United States.'
: "This is the mont absolutely reckless,
unsafe, and I had almost said Insane,
utterance that has ever !een attribut
ed to a president of the l.'nited States.
I cannot lelleve that the president said
it. You must hav misquoted him.
"As far as Individuals are concerned
criminal procedure for the collection
of debts has been abolished in all civ
ilized countries. Dickens made the
people of England nnd of the world
ashamed of Imprisonment for debt.
Now -omes along the president of the
moat enlightened nation of the world
and intimates that It is the duty of
that nation to resort to interference
whenever a utitkni in the western hem
isphere refuses to pay Its obligations.
"What would the interference be?
Why. if serious nnd if resisted It would
rewult In bombardment of cities, land
ing of troops nnd killing of men, be
sides rendering women ami children
houseless, 'Imagination of poet, mad
man or lover never went further than
the imagination of the acting president
when 1h says. If he (hies say. that It Is
the duty of the Dotted States to make
of Itself a universal national collecting
ngency; if be meant the name simply
to airily to people of the western hem
isphere, then an American hemispheric
"The truth is that commercialism
ought to be taught n vnlnuble lesson
to wit, that if It cliooses to do busi
ness In unsafe countries without sta
ble institutions and amortK semibar
barous peoples It does it with its eyes
ojH-n. it takes Its own risk, and the
armies and navies of the world, espe
cially those of the United States, main
tained by taxing the people, cannot
1k Bjaed as constables without warrant
or other process for debt collection pur-
"If I choose to buy Dominican or
Venezuelan USUI Wis or ermlt Haiti
or either of the other countries to run
in debt to me It may be that I am a
ffiol from a business BtnndioInt, but
my folly does not entitle me to have
my debts collected by the navy and
army of the T'nlted States, and the
government of the United States ought
not only not to place itself in that atti
tude, but it ought to go further and an
nounce to the world that, so far as the
hemisphere of America Is concerned,
at any rate, collection of money ob
ligations by bombardment must -ense.
If a private Individual killed another
because that other had fraudulently
incurred a debt which he refused to
pay we would hang the Individual srbo
did the killing.
"You ask me if the president's policy
as outlined in the quotation by you
'Increases expenditures for the army
and navy' and whether this letter to
e Secretary Hoot, read tn;xn the oc
casion referred to. 'would leave a per
petual sword of war banging over Cen
tral and South America and ourselves.'
"Of course it does and would, or else
the utterance in the letter is mere im
potence -and 'liniKJtence.' by the way.
which results to a certain degree in a
general loosening of the tics of civl
lztl society ' The utterance Is of
course not 'within constitutional lipil
tatiOttS,' except so long as It remains
merely an utterance and no overt act
looking toward realizing It is resorted
"Luckily, I presume, however, no
Nxiy will take the utterance of the
president seriously, and the 'mad world
wOl wag' its own way, largely undis
turbed by mere verbiage. Words ure
but breath as long as they remain mere
words, but if the government of the
United States were to proceed to act
upon the suggestive utterances fulmi
natcd In the quotation which you sent
me from the president's letter to ex
Secretary Iioot then there would in
deed be a 'general loosening of the ties
of civilized society.'
"Our first overt act looking toward
the realization in deds of the policies
and tendencies expressed in the presi
dent's words would be "an assumption
of authority contrary' not only "to all
international usage." but contrary to
the laws ocnmi!:n sense.
"You ask me if 'it would not le a
flagrant exhibition of Jingoism.' Jingo
ism is a word tw weak. Madness
would come nearer to it. Hysteria
would come still nearer. But as a mat
ter of fact the word has not yet been
invented symbolizing the thing of
which that sort of verbiage would be a
"By the way. If other nations are to
apply to us the doctrine which the
president Is quoted as having laid down
a9 our guide In our relations with
them, then there luiuht ls some of
them who might say that we ure not j
acting with 'decency In industrial mat
ters and that until we do act with
decency In industrial matters we are
subject st least to the risk ofr 'Inter
ference' on their part.
"But the last utterance which you
quote from the presnient is the most
remarkable to wit: "All that we ask
is that they govern themselves well
and be prosperous and orderly. Where
thin is the case they will find helpful
ness from us.' The inference is that
if they conduct themselves in any oth
er way they will find unhelpfulness
from us. Whether this unhelpfuiness
is to le merely passive or active, af
firmaUve and aggressive is not stated.
"At any rate. It would be curious to
consider this new dis-overy in the
realm of international relations from
the standpoint of the condition of the
United States in 1K77, when both panic
and Molly atcOfatoes were in evidence,
and also about when panic, Chi
cago strikes and various other thlncs
were in evidence. I think It could
hardly be said that we vaere 'prosper
ous or orderly' at either of these two
Ieriods or at several others in the his
tory of our eoantry, and yet had the
nations of the world turned this acting
presidential doctrine around about on
us I think we could have replied that,
although are were neither 'prosperoos
nor orderly." we were at least, like the
dancing girl in the western show, "do
ing the best we could' and because of
that had a right to beg 'not to be shot
CAUSES OF COLDS.
One of the Mont Common of Them la
KatiiiK Too Much.
The invariable cause of colds comes
from within, not without No one takes
cold when in a vigorous state of health,
with pure blood rooming through the
lxiy, and there is no good reason why
any one in ordinary health should have
a cold, it may come from Insufficient
exercise, breathing of fool air, want of
arbolesome food, excess of food, lack of
bathing, etc.. but always from some
violation of the plain laws of health.
There can le no more prolific cause
of colds than highly neaeooed foods as
well as frequent sal lug These give no
time for the digestive organs to rest
and incite an increased flow of the di
gestive tut lion i Thus larger quanti
ties of nourishment are absorbed than
can ie properly utilised, sod the result
is an obstruction, commonly called a
""cold." which is simply an effort of the
system to expel the useless material.
Properly speaking, it is self poisoning,
due to an Incapability of th organism
to regulate and compensate for the dis
turbance. A deficient supply of pure air to the
lungs is not only S strong predisposing
cause of colds, hut a prolific source of
much graver conditions. Pure air and
exercise are necessary to prepare the
system for the assimilation of nutri
ment, for without tbem there can be no
rigorous health. The oxygen of the
air we breathe regulates the appetite
as well as the nutriment that is built
up in the sj si in.
The safest and best way to avoid
Colds is to sleep in a room with the
windows wide open and to remain out
of doors ever day. no matter what
may be the weather, for at least two
hours, pn fersbiy with some kind of
exercise, if no more than walking. One
should not sit down to rest while the
feet are wet or the clothing damp, A
person may go with the clothing wet
through to tln skin all day If he but
keeps moving. Exercise keeps up the
circulation and prevents taking cold.
The physiologic care of colds is the
prevention of the occurrence. The per
son arfao does not carry around an over
supply of alimentation In his system
BWd furthermore secures a purified cir
culation by strict, sanitary cleanliness,
thus placing himself in a positive con
dition, is Immune to colds. A starving
man cannot take cold.
A careful diet would exclude the use
of all narcotics and all food that is not
thoroughly appropriated. An overfed
person is worse off than one who is un
derfed, because the overfed body is
taxed to dispose of what -annot be a
propriated and, when not properly dis
posal of, remains only to be an element
of danger.- Science of Health.

Then: is a certain physiologies dif
ference between the poisonous and
harmless snakes which exists very
plainly in their manner of dentition.
All snakes are objects of aversion and
dread to mankind, so much so that to
1m- bitten by a snake has at times been
so fearful to the victim as to have pro
duce! death although the snake was
harmless. Such is the instinctive dread
With which these reptiles are thought
of tharrt may be desirable to have
some easy mode of distinguishing the
one kind from the Other. This distin
guishing characteristic is afforded by
the teeth. In all poisonous snakes
there are only two rows of teeth, the
fang or fangs being arranged either
within the two rows or outside of them.
The harmless snakes blive four distinct
rows of teeth, and when the bite shows
this kind of w ound and not any single
deeper or larger puncture there need
be no apprehension.
WalklnK For Malaria.
Obstinate cases of malaria that have
withstood the OCSSB voyage, mountain
heights ami quinine dosing are said to
have In-en conquered by systematic and
mw tinned walking. What the malarial
patient wants most to do is to sit in
doors, nurse bis aches nnd pains or to
lie down and doze. Advocates of the
walking cure maintain that fresh air Is
au antidote not only to the malaria It
self, but to the blues, which usually
accompanies it. Their advice to the
sufferer is to dress up warmly if the
weather is damp or rainy and go out to
walk. Wear flannel next to the skin,
tout shoes and simple hat. If it is
warm, dress lightly, but carry a wrap
to throw around the shoulders against
drafts and too rapid cooling off. When
one comes to think of It, there are few
maladies on earth that fresh air and
moderate vxegcise are not good for. .
