A Defect In Kducatioc
By way of illustration of the need of In
struction in the fundamental conception ot
what our government is, take the prop's,
that ia put nbout in newspapers and ap
pears in popular conventions to elect sena
tors of the United States by popular vote
in each state. What difference, it is asked,
does ii make whether the senators rcpre
6eutinj; tU- state are chosen by popular vote
or by the legislature? The question shows
a profound misconception of the funda
mental nature of our system, upon the
maintt-nanco of which depends the perpetu
ity of t lie repul.il ic.
The framers of the constitution provided
f or t wo sol t s of representation in confess
a popular representation of the people cf
the several states in the lower house and a
representation of the states themselves as
entitle.-;, us real living bodies in the senate.
They secured these by providing that repre
sentatives should be elected by popular
vote, and senators by the vote of the leyis
laturts of the states.
The constitution was not adopted by pop
ular vote, but by the vote of the states,
piven jiceordiii' to their nr.tun.sby the letr
jslauavs. The slate acts through its legis
lature and its executive, mid not by popu
lar int. venn.it (ii recti y. It needs nourKU
nicnt to show that to change the constitu
tion in regard to the election of senators is
to change fundamentally the character of
our irovernmeiit, and also to remove one ot
the safeguards against impulsive move
ments to which our stai.uuy, in a cemurj
of revolutions elsewhere, has been largely
due. So long as we can keep the machine
with its original checks and balances, as
the phrase is, we have the most stable gov
ernment on earth. Charles Dudley War
ner in Hurler's.
Sec-Ins Stars In l.itlme.
I once asked this question of a well
known editor, ex pectins a logical answer
in the "Notes and Queries"' column of his
paper. Query, "Is it a fact that one can
see stars in broad daylight if he descends
into a well or deep mining shaft ltn) feet
deep or more, and then looks out at tho
opening above?" Indue time the answer
came as foows: "Stars can be seen in tho
davtime from the bottom of a well or
shaft. The l ing dark tube shuts out all
ravsof sunlight, and the eye, accustomed
to the uloom, sees stars whic h would be in
distinguishable by broad daylight." 1 hat
answer never satisfied my curiosity, and I
am not sure but that 1 wrote the editor
again in reirard to the matter.
I have two reasons for being dissatisfied
with the answer as it stands our old
"Philosophies" taught us that the reason
we cannot see stars in daytime is because
the rays of the sun are so strong or power
ful that they eclipse the feehle light given
out by the stars. If this is the case, why
should the simple act of lowering one's self
into a well lessen the power of sunlight.
strengthen the power of starlight or make
human vision more penetrative? secondly.
the writer of this is an amateur geologist:
has been in mining shafts on hundreds of
occasions, in t hoso varying in depth from
30 to TOO feet, and has never yet seen a star
upon looking out upon tho vaulted canopy
above, unless it was startime.
This "seeing stars in davtime" is a favor
ite with would lie smart Alecs, but I want
to register my opinion that no man ever
saw a star upon looking out of a well or
shaft unless he chose nighttime for mak
ing his observations. St. Louis Republic.
A Sharp Swindling Scheme.
Four very brilliant crooks adopted a
scheme by which they might get exceed
ingly rich. The game, when successfully
played, ran as follows: Along some coun
try road leading through a fairly prosper
ous district a well dressed gentleman
would drive. At every well to do looking
farmhouse he would stop for a drink, en
ter into conversation telling of anxiety to
buy land for agricultural purposes and
finally in a roundabout manner wind up
by either giving or selling for almost noth
ing a 2-pound box of really superb fine cut
chewing and smoking tobacco. Then he
left. Several weeks later the second of the
quartette happens to bo going the same
route. He, however, is selling fruit trees
the captious agent of some plant nursery.
In his desire to sell he visits the identical
farmhouses and spends an hour or so in
argument. To curry favor he winds up by
buying a pound of the fiirmer's most ex
cellent tobacco at an exorbitant rate.
A week later came a government officer
in blue a striking looking government
detective. IJe has found out that t his farm
er is selling toliacco without a license and
holds as a jiroof the identical tobacco. Let
ters with great seals and red tape, and much
correspondence ensues. All the delinquent
farmers are gathered together and a money
compromise accepted instead of the much
feared government x'rosecution and peni
tentiary. The scheme always worked ex
cept the last time, when t he crooks were
shadowed and arrested. They were found
to be men with fine homes ami exceedingly
wealthy. St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

A eommauder in the United States navy
says that the heaviest drain on the re
sources of the officers comes from social
obligation, esjiecially in foreign ports. They
are invited to dine with a king, a prince, a
governor, and as a representative of this
nation they have to go. Then in return
they must invite the potentate to dinner
with them. They must decorate the ship
brilliantly and provide a sumjituom
"spread" not only for the king, but for as
many ministers and hangers on as he
chooses to bring with him, and every time
this is done each officer must go down into
his pocket for Si3 or more. ban t raucisco
