Corrupt corporations should never

The reports that the Cossacks are
the only troops of Russia that arc ab
solutely reliable would indicate that
the government and the Cossacks are
worthy of each other. The other na
tions should compel Russia to disarm
these barbarians, not because they are
good soldiers, for they are not, but
because they are fiends below the
standard of Apuche Indians.
If it were not ridiculous, It would be
painful, this effort of the gentleman in
Manila, who sends dispatches to this
country to account for the persistent
growth among the Filipinos of the de
sire for national independence. That
learned writer lays the responsibility
upon certain facts which are notori
ously not the cause of the agitation,
such as the declaration fn the last
democratic national platform, the per
sistent agitation of the anti-imperialists,
and the receptions and speeches
given to the Filipino delegation in this
country. Finally, he does hint at the
real reason which makes this feeling
acute the belief on the part of the
Filipinos that their country is being
exploited by adventurers whose head
quarters are at Washington. There is
no doubt that the last reason comes
much nearer to the truth. When the
motto of the Philippines for the Fili
pinos is the basis of our action, then
the popular feeling against us will not
be nearly as acute.
Th indicated purpose to raise the
money for the construction of the Pan
ama canal by an additional tax of one
dollar a barrel on beer is going to
start trouble right away. The brew
er may have the idea, and probably
will have the idea that they are paying
their share to the support of the gov
ernment, and that it is unfair to levy
tolls on "schooners" for the purpose
of making a canal for vessels of all
styles. The brewers, ably assisted by
the retail men, and having the sympa
thy of all the people who will believe
that the schooner is smaller as a re
suit of the tax, will go into the cam
paign. and the tax will not long re-
maia if it is imiHsed.
Uut the strongest opposition will come
from those not in sympathy with the
brewers, and who have the opinion
that so imiortaut a public work should
not be made to depend on habits that
the' have been righting, and that they
consider an unmixed evil. To enable
the canal work to proceed, the beer
mus be sold, and it will not be sold
unless it is consumed, and the tem
perance workers of the country will
hold the administration reionsible for
attempting to promote a business to
which they are opposed. The whole
thing simmers down to a simple state
ment that the canal was undertaken
without a just appreciation of the dif
ficulties in the way. and when there
was no knowledge as to th source
from which the money would be received.
Unmarked (Jrave of Pocahontas.
Shall Pocahontas, the daughter of
Powhatan.the perserver of the life of
Capt. John Smith and the wife of John
Ralfe have a monument. This his
toric Indian woman died in Kngland.
leaving one son. Thomas Ralfe. who
took up his residence in Virginia and
became a person of note and influence.
Several Virginia families look back to
him as their common ancestor, among
them the Randolphs. The marriage of
Pocahontas to an Englishman result
ed in a more friendly fee-ling between j
the settlers and the Indians and wasj
productive of a better understanding
of each o:her by the two races. Her
body lies buried, it is believed, under
an unmarked mound in an old church
yard near Gravesend, in the connty of
Kent, England. Some time ago an as
sociation of women in Richmond. Ya..
made an effort to have the remains
of Pocahontas exhumed and brought
to Yorktown. but it was unsuccessful.
A communication in the Washington
Post calls attention to the American
neglect of this celebrated woman.
"Time passes away," the writer says,
"and the memories of the past are for
gotten. Monuments have been erected
and braverj' awarded for great men
who assisted this country at the crit
ical time of the revolution, and con
gress has generously apropriated mon
ey for that good purpose, but the early
settlers of this great nation have been
forgotten." And then reference is made
to the .services rendered by Pocahon
tas and wonder is expressed why
neither her descendants nor the gov
ernment have caused some fitting mon
ument to be erected to her memory.
Perhaps if she were buried in the land
of her birth greater attention would
have been givon to the question of mark
ing her last resting place. Rut some
shaft or slab, however simple, in the
churchyard at Gravescnrt would not
be amiss. The subject is full of in
terest and it is understood that the
hope of finding the body and remov
ing it to this country has not been
abandoned. If that shall be done a
suitable tomb will be provided as a
matter of course.

The little old barrel organ "whined

In the street. Its three tunes followed
one another in ceaseless Mivewsion.
The jerky strains of "After the Ball"'
were supplanted by "The I-ist Rose of
Summer," and this iu turn gave way to
"Lead. Kindly Light," a rendition
whieh was unique iu uneven breaks
and phthiskky wheezes due to compli
cations in the internal meehauism of
the dilapidated affair.
Huddled on the bricks of the side

fence, an old man with a rusty gray

As Franeesea West and young Hol
lander came down the street the organ
was in the throes of "Lead, Kindly

sent ont seemed somewhat in the na
ture of a protest. Franeesea caught
the young man's arm, and they halted
before the org.-ui.
"Oh," she said under her breath,
"what a horrible old man;" And, fish
ing a quarter from her purse, she
dropped it into the tin cup.
The old man tom-hed his hat. grunt

the hymit squeaked along its uneven
way. Hollander watched the proceed

"The old humbug!" he commented as
they continued their way down the

"Well," said Hollander, "perhaps you
noti"ed he suffixed his 'thanks' with a
'mum' instead of a 'sir.' I w as watch

covertly oiou the eye nearest the cup.
Rest assured he saw the quarter and
its donor as well as 1 did."
"Anyway," she said, "he earns the
pittance he gets. Imagine sitting there

"Ikm't let the pennies deceive you,"
Hollander protested. "He puts the
nickels and dimes in his pockets. It
would hurt business to have the tin
cup look too prosperous. By this time
your quarter is safely .salted with the
rest, and the three ioniiies make their
pathetic appeal to other tender hearts."
Franccsea's brow wrinkled in disap
proval. "I'd hate to look at the world through
such green goggles of cynicism," she
said. "I always give something to
every beggar in my path."
"Allow me to take excerption to that
statement," said the young man. "Some
of the leggars' pleas you don't deign
"Indeed!" said the girl with a slight
lifting of her pretty eyebrows. "When

"There is one beggar in particular,"
said Hollander, "an honest beggar, too,
whom you utterly ignore. He needs
your alniH far more titan your pscudo
blind org:m grinders."
"Where is this neglected beggar?"
she asked. "When have I seen him?"
"He has dogged your steps for the
last five years," he said gravely. "He
has sat at your feet and held out his
little tin cup for alms, but you have
been blind to bin presence and deaf
to his plaints."
Franeesea smiled maliciously.
"Is he ragged and dirty?" she asked.
"Would I know he was a beggar Just
to see him?"
"You would know be was a beggar
Just to hear him," he returned.
"Is it money he Iegs?" she inquired
"Xo," he said, "it's not money lie
wants. He has enough of that him
self. He begs for interest mid sym
pathy and love."
"'And suppose I dropped some love

cup, what would he do? Would he
grind me a tune on a decrepit barrel or
gan?" "He'd give you lifelong devotion in
return." he said earnestly.
"Perhnj he's as big a humbug as the
blind man," she mused. "Perhaps he's
picked the metnphorh-al dimes and
nickels out of his cup and stowed them
in his pockets, aud only lets me see the
thn-e pathetic pennies."
"Franceses !" he said in hurt surprise.
hhe laughed rather uneasily.
"1 said 'perhaps,' " she reminded him.
"I see," he said, somewhat mollltied.
There was silence between them for

"You say you give aims to every rag

"He does! I assure you he does!" he
"Then, Just to stop his begging," said
Fran-esca, looking at a cornice on the
other side of the street, "lTi-I'll give
him what he asks."
On his way home they passed the old
man with the barrel organ again. Hol

Some years ago while at work, I fell

of my shins. My blood became poisoned
as a result, and the doctor told me I

that if they were healed up the result
would be fataL Under this discouraging
report I left off their treatment and re
sorted to the use of S. S. S. Its effects
were prompt and gratifying. It took
only a short while for the medicine to en
tirely cure up the sores, and I am not
dead as the doctors intimated, nor have
the sores ever broke out again. Some I a

mend it as the one great blood purifier.
