The White Navy of Peace.
Some days ago Secretary of th
avy Herbert was asked Jus opinion
as to the comment that the American
naval vessels are the onlv ones that
are painted white. It is said, an
very truly, that a white vessel makes
a more conspicuous target than a
black one, and that a black vessel
may escape observation at night
when a white one can be easilvafccn
Mr. Herbert's explanation of the
color of our naval vessels is that
white is a peace color. Another im
portant fact in regard to the white is
that in hot weather, in summer, or
when the vessels are in tropical
waters, the heat in the interior of a
black ship is considerably greater
than in a white one. In a black ship
the tlegree of the heat in the sleep
ing apartments is almost unendura
ble, and it was partly for the com
fort and health of the men aboard
that white was adopted.
In ease of war the vessels could be
repainted without loss of time, and
black or any other inconspicuous
color could be used. It w ould seem
that blue would be an even less con
spicuous color than black. Hut so
long as we are at peace with the
world it is entirely proper that our
war vessels should sail under the
color of peace, denoting that we wish
to remain at jeace with the world.
And considerations for the health
and comfort of our naval officers and
men should be among the first con
siderations, as pointed out by Mr.
Let us rather rejoice that ours is
the only navy sailing in the white
raiment of peace. We are content,
w illing to remain at peace with the
world. Our recognized strength is
our lest protection. The American
navy has made the many glorious
chapters in the history of the past
hundred years for any nation to at
tack us because we do not carry a
chip on our shoulder. Let us keep

A Doom In Rabbits' i'eet.
It will be remembered that when Vice
President Stevenson was canvassing
North Carolina last Septemler he was
presented with the traditional "left hind
foot of a graveyard rabbit," the animal
from which this token of good luck was
taken being captured, it is alleged, in
the old city cemetery at Raleigh. Stev
enson "got there," and this evident ful
fillment of the traditional good luck of
the possessor of a graveyard rabbit's
hind foot has evidently struck some in
genioxis Yankee with an idea. A firm in
North Carolina, which makes a specialty
of rabbit skins and handles thousands
of them every year, has received an or
der for 100,000 rabbits' feet, "hind feet
preferred." The natural inference is
that this order means that "rabbits' hind
feet" will soon be on the market as
charms. Who knows but that this an
nouncement is the forerunner of a new
"fad'r" Syracuse Journal.

The Higbt to Lie About Circulation.
The right of every newspaper to show
that its circulation is larger than every
other newspaper is not to be abridged
with the expectation of no more results
than those of an international monetary
conference. There are times when, ac
cording to the universal code of morals,
lies, if not accepted as virtues, are ac
quiesced in as necessaries. There are
occasions when to "perjure one's self
like a gentleman" is regarded as a mat
ter of course, nitherto it has been con
sidered equally a matter of course that
a newspaper may lie when speaking of
its circulation. Now that this right has
been taken away in California it is nat
ural that something is expected to hap

Wild Balls at Large.
Three hundred American bulls were

across the quay and finally dispersed in
different streets. The inhabitants were
panic stricken. Soon a formidable bat

the populace had succeeded in partly
killing and partly capturing the greater

killed, nine persons injured, four fatally,

There is more catarrh in this sec
tion of tin country than all other
diseases put together, and until the
last lew years was supposed to be in
curable. For a great many years
doctors pronounced it a local disease,
and prescribed local remedies, ami
by constantly failing to cure with lo
cal treatment, pronounced it incura
ble. Science has proven catarrh to
be a constitutional disease, and there
fore requires constitutional treat
ment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manu
factured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Tole

cure on the market. It is taken in

Now is that time. Those who suf

now in favor of a cure. They should
not put off treatment until next win
