Best Dining Car Service in the World.
The Kock Island is foremost in
adopting any advantage calculated
to improve speed anl ;ive that lux
ury, safety and comfort that popular
patronage demands. Its equipment
is thoroughly complete with vesti
buled trains, magnificent dining
cars, sleepers and chair coaches, all
the most elegant, and of recently im
Faithful and capable management
and polite, honest service from em
ployes are important items. They
are'a double duty to the company
and to travelers and it is sometimes
a task difficult of accomplishment.
Fassengers on this line will find little
cause for complaint on that ground.
The Great ltock Island Koute runs all
regular trains to Englewood subur
ban station, close to World's Fair
grounds, and you can save time and
trouble by getting off at that point
and avoid the crowd in the city.

60CIAL COMPACT THAT UNDERLIES
The Fundamental Law of Man Which Com
pel, the State to Take the life of One
Who Has by Ills Own Band Taken the
Life of Another The Right to Take Llfo.
There is an infinite amount of loose
thinking, speaking and writing about capi
tal crime and its punishment. We are
growing too mtich accustomed to hear mur
der trials discussed as if they were contests
between prosecuting officers eager to en
force the vengeance of a cruel and blood
thirsty state and the legal champions. of an
unfortunate prisoner seeking to escape the
penalties of an unrighteous law. That is a
false view of the matter utterly false.
Reference is in order to the first princi
ples on which society rests. There are
some primary truths tvhich it seems need
to be firmly reasserted.
There were natural laws long Ix-fore any
human laws were enacted. They are ele
mental, and their justice is self evident.
Among these natural laws there is one that
stands surely first. It is expressed in the
homely proverb, "Self preservation is the
first law of nature." From this first law
of nature it followed that when men lived
without organized society and had no state,
no written law, no courts and no regular
machinery of justice, any man whose wife
or daughter or son or brother or kinsman
of any sort was killed or injured, or whoso
home was invaded by any kind of violence,
had the right of retaliation in his own
bands. If any of his household were slain,
be had the right to kill the slayer.
This natural law rules everywhere today
outside the picket fence of organized civ
ilization. It would rule in the United
States again and instantly if it were dis
tinctly proclaimed that laws and courts
bad ceased to exist and that every man, wo
man and child in the community had as
much protection as and no more than they
could provide for themselves. All the au
thorities on law anil justice that have ever
spoken or written from the time of Moses
down to the days of Recorder Smyth, have
agreed ujion this point, that the right of
defensive and protective retaliation for in
jury is a natural one conferred by the Cre
ator upon every man, and not to be taken
away from him unless an equivalent pro
tection be afforded by the state.
The state is the product of civilization,
but what is the state? The state is simply
a f-ocial compact. It is a contract between
every individual member of it and the col
lective community. The individual agrees
to give up u-.any of his individual rights.
Among them he niTrees to give up the right
to kill ct siglit the man who assails him or
any of his kindred and binds himself never
to kill, except when in his judgment his
own life will be lost if he does not. The
individual agrees further not to kill at
sight the assassin or the violator of his
wife or daughter, but instead to leave the
man who has thus irreparably injured him
to the public justice of the state. Hut the
individual citizen is only one party to th
social contract. The state also agrees to do
certain things in return for the surrender
of individual rights.
The state binds itself to give to the in
dividual citizen, through its laws and its
courts, the same just satisfaction which b
would be clearly entitled to demand and
take if be lived iu a desert where no human
tribunal existed. The state says to him:
"'The right to kill the man who kills j our
nearest and dearest ones is surrendered, but
it is not lost. If your home is invaded, your
hearthstone desecrated, your household
robbed of its inmates to fill premature and
bloody graves, the collective state will hold
him who does these things to the same ac
countability to which you yourself could
and would hold him if you lived in a state
of nature, in the full enjoyment of your
The law which makes murder punishable
with death is the logical outcome, of that
compact between the state and the individ
ual citizen. It is idle to talk of the state as
having any malice to gratify or any ven
geance to appease against such u man as
Alxuy, the murderer t-f Christie 'Warden in
New Hampshire, or Harris in New York.
Society collectively can not and does not
seek the life of any man. Hut the state has
made a compact under which it is stipu
lated that the natural light of private ven
geance shall not be exercised, yet by that
same compact it has guaranteed to protect
every household within its larders from all
such invasions and violations, m.d to do it
by placing every man in the community
under a bond not to kill, with the penalty
attached to the bond that if be will not let
another live neither shall he live himself.
We may theorize, and speculate, and
split legal hairs, and raise moral quibbles
from now to the crack of doom, but we
never can get away from the basic laws of
human nature. Men will never surrender
their natural right to defend their lives,
their homes, their wives and their children
against the assassin by killing him any
longer than the state fulfills its duty to
hold murderers to the same expiation
which, if there were no laws and no courts,
they would certainly le held by those
whom they wronged, and they never ought
to surrender it. James W. Clarke in New
Keeping One's Youth.
There is a man in this town who is over
50 years old, and he looks 35. His face is
smooth, his eye clear, and not a hair ia
white. It is true he lives a quiet life, and
his pursuits are sedentary, but he attrib
utes the continuation of youth to 5-minute
naps. "I cultivated the habit of sleeping
offhand when I was a youngster," he says,
"and have kept it up ever since. I don't go
to bed or lie down when I want a nap, but
as soon as I feel drowsy I put my elbow on
the back of my chair, rest my head upon
my hand and go oil sound for five min
utes. Wheu I wake up, I am in first class
trim again. I have got so used to that way
of napping that if I lie down I am wide
awake in an instant." Xew York Sun.
The beastly Yitellius, as Giblwn calls
him, spent at least six millions of money on
table iu about as many months. He invent
ed, or his cook invented for him, a dish
which he designated "The Shield of Miner
va." One of its principal ingredients was
flamingoes' tongues, of which, I may add,
both Pliny and Martial speak in encomias
tic terms. Hampier says that the flamin
goes have "large tongues, and near the root
is a piece of fat which is accounted a great
dainty." When Captain Oweu was survey
ing the east coast of Africa, his sailors shot
down hundreds of these beautiful birds in
order, with an extravagance worthy of Yi
tellius, to make a dish of the tongues alone.

The Serpent Talked Like a Man.
In John Ashton's "Curious Creatures of
Zoology," there is a quotation from "a
little Latine booke, printed at Vienna in
the yen re 1551," which tells a most wonder
ful story. Ashton quotes as follows:
"There was found in a mowe or rycke of
corn almost as many snakes, adders and
other 6erpentcs as there wns sheaf es, so as
no one sheaf could le removed but there
presently appeared a heape of ougly and
fierce serpentes. The countrie men deter
mynedtoset fire upon the barnt and so
attempted to do, but in vnine, for the straw
would take no fire, although they laboured
with nil their witts and policye to burn
them n -.
"At last there appeared unto them at the
top of the heap a huge great scrpente,
which lifted up his bead and spake with a
man's voyce to the countrie men, saying,
'Cease to prosecute your devise, for you
shall not be able to accomplish our burn
ing, for wee were not bredde by nature,
neither came we here of our owne accord,
but were sent by Gxl to take vengence on
the s'.nnes of men.' "
Ashton leaves us in the dark as to what
the "count rie" men did, but it is natural
to suppose that they surrendered at once.
