It would bo a good thing if all
holidays would come on Saturday, so
that tho tired eclebrators might re
cuperate on Sunday. The day one
needs a holiday most is the day after
The American youth begins to learn
his Latin grammar when he is in his
thirteenth year, tho French boy
begins three years sooner, and all
because the Frenchman's throe .It's
are easier to master. ..
Axxoixcement is made that the)
government will send some men-of-war
to Chinese waters-, Thjs may,
however, be premature, , a adrises
have not stated that the project has
the "approval of the six companies.
The little ivpublio of Liberia is in
sore straits between the rival terri
torial .schemes of England and
Franca, both .of which powers en
croach on Liberian soil without
scruple, and , unless, aid . comes from
some quarter, it is possible that Li
beria may be wholly wiped out.
Htcvn.Txo is the nearest to flying
that human ingenuity has yet ap
proached. Only one or two square
inches of the bicycle wheel come in
contact with the earth at any one
time.,, so that the "bicyclist, if he Is
not .flying, is very near to it It he
has a pneumatic tire he literally rides
on the' air. '
English workingraen object to
being forced to contribute towards
the purchase of girts for the duke
of York and his'brido. ' t There is a
gleam of common-sense in this' of
almost radiant luster. Even a royal

A Chicago policeman, shot at a
pickpocket and,.ldll?d. a ' small boy.
Whether this . vicarious punishment
will serve as a restraint to the pick
pocket Is p'pen to aouht, but the les
son should not be lost on thc,'police
man. JVVhon -he -wants to. winar a
transgressor of the law let him aim

AxoTiif.u man has fallen into a
commoa error. Having determined
to kjll ' himself ho 'wrote a, note
statin? that he was tired of. life.
Then' ho did kill himself. It might
have been assumed Jrom the latter
act alone that the relations between
the man- and lifo had become strained
even to th6 point of weariness.
Ax American named Fate has been
granted a concession to establish a
fine horse-breeding farm in Mexico,
he contracting . to Import not less
than 200, .thoroughbreds into, that
country each year. This is a good
thitog for 'Mexico; Fate imports the
horses and the reaseTS do the rest

Tii.':::f. is no ignis fatuus in the
frozen north to lure men toward an
imaginary point on the earth's sur
face. And yet, despite a record of
failure und death that might well
da-.tnt even the most courageous soul,
almost every j-oar finds some new
party of daring explorers tempted to
pursue the perilous way to the north
People are now attracting atten
tion to themselves by going to the
world's fair by all mtthods of trans
portation. Some go on horseback,
some on muleback, some on bicycles,
some walk and we ,may expect soon
to hear of balloon expeditions to
Chicago. Hut the good," old-fashioned,
palace car method still con
tinues the easiest way to get to the
It is more than likely that tho
monument which Iceland fUandford
began to erect while in life will con
tinue to rise, uow that he has joined
he-land Stanford, -Jr.' in whose honor
the monument was started. There
are no heirs but the childless widow
to prevent the complete execution of
a magnificent dsiga and Mrs. Stan
ford is -supposed, to have first; sug

abolish' banishment to Siberia as-punishment.
It is hoped that if it is 1ut
an upfoundod bit of gossip it will
strike the autocrat. with all the force
of a very worthy suggestion. : The
United; States-,, has unfortunately
placed it-elf in. a position to assist in
adding to . the population' of that
dreary country and would like to see
a way out ' - '- : ' '
It is surprising how many Ameri
can young men and women prepare
to leave their- educational life with
little or. no -thought. pr. the future.
Tho general tendency is to "rest
awhile and see what turns no."
There t a tOarm in the nappy-go-lucky
way that these young Micttw
bers trust their-fate to destiny In
such an off-hand manner. It speaks
well for tha prosperity of the coun
try which makes it possible.
Eight million dollars is not a large
sum .compared with the mass of
nioney.of virions kinds in circulation
today, but the arrival of that amount
of geld, nov on its way to the United
States, ought to produce a quieting
effect up n the public mind.
Thirteen against two is rather
long. odds, and that seems to be the
relative strength of the French and
English Hef ts in Siamese waters. In
the presence of snch odds will rlis-
ill. the bwif.t and Pallas move out
of the blockade line, or .will they
prefer to be sent to the bottom? It
must be days before they can lxv re
inforced lr- the Hritish Chinese
squadron, and the force will ' bo
weakened if they are captured or
sunk. It is a pretty dilemma, w hich
dwarfs interest in the 'sham naval
light now going on in Hritish waters.
'Daily An erican: ' Mrs
Joan of Arc of the Kansas populists,
is hard at work among the contempo
rary jawsmiths of the Sunflower
state. It v mid iut be ,tut of place,
in view of the lady's lunatieal utter

wealth which she Adorns to the more
appropriate Moonflower. If she' were
an able-bodied man of political" all
work it would , hot be rude to say
that, in shouting for the gore of the
east, she . talks through her hat. as

she will, in any case, have ' to bear
the modified' imputation of convers

She also predicts days of incredible

The nation will, however, manage te

A Bl-o.irlsh City or Today.
Seville is tot ' ay as much a Moorish city
as it was 300 yi ars ago, at the expulsion of
the Saracens. The arrangement and plan
of the dwellings are the same as on the Eu
phrates and Ti ris, but they are more beau
tified -and em obled by art and by the
wealth w-hich these Moslems in Spain and
Sicily had at i heir command. It is a re
markable fact t.hat the Arabs, who in their
native land ha e never risen above the low
est stage of civilization, but have always
been a nomadk pastoral people, became in
Europe the bearers of knowledge and re
finement. Poetry and history, mathemat
ics astronomy and architecture flourished
with them when the Christian west had
sunk into dark barbarism.
Tlwre is no :.more beautiful poetry than
their lumentat tons for their lost paradise '
of Granada. aml in their encounters with !
Christian chividry they often displayed a
romantic valor and generosity which served

Everything on the Square, .,.
A number of years' age it' was my good
fortune to stop at the small town of Norris
City, in southern Illinois. I had frequent
ly heard the boys on the road allude to a
certain hotel in the place as being "ronton
the square," but had no idea of just what
this meant till one evening when Mr. Jones,
the proprietor, escorted me to his hospita
ble tavern. I was just in time for SuDDer
and had an 'Entia appetite," sharp-
ened all the more by having just left one
of the most dilapidated houses of public
misery In the country.
On taking my seat at the table I was
was struck with the unique appearance of
everything npon it. My plate, enp and
saucer, individual butter dish, salt and
pepper boxes, napkin and ring, caster and
its contents in fact, even the delicious
brown biscuits were all square. It is un
necessary to say the meal was a square one.
The proprietor's, wife (almost as broad as
long), who. waited on the table, was as
nearly square as it is possible for a human
being td be. The house was square and
built on the town square. The only thing
not appearing in harmony was the old gen
tleman himself. His actions were square,
to be sure, but his shape was like a south
ern Illinois hooppole long and slender.
When, I met him after supper, he said: "I
hope you have had a square meal, sir. Ev
eryt hing in my house is done on the square,"
