A woman likes to be told she looks
fresh, but a man doesn't.
The way of the wise man. Is to let a
•woman have her own way.
One is apt to strike a happy vela In
the vicinity of the funny bone.
Luck is blamed with a lot of mis-'
fortunes of which it Is ignorant.
It is probably the excessive liabili
ties that make marriage a failure.
If you don't care for the things you
can't obtain you will be fairly happy.
Pluck usually wins. A man's success
often depends upon his ability to pluck
others.
Politicians are sometime* called
dark horse# because of their shady
records.
Lobsters may not have spirits, but
many a man has felt their presence
after death.
Poverty would soon be an unknown
quantity if men could dispose of their
experience at cost.
What a glorious world this would be
If the iceman would only deliver op
portunities at our doors.
It Is possible that John Bull may
conclude in time that all is not gold
that glitters in South Africa.
There is one peculiar thing about
the man who borrows trouble he is
always willing to share it with others.
A philosopher says: "Wise men
jhesitate only fools are certain."
the philosopher is certain of this he
must be a fool according to his own
theory.
Sixty-two automobiles paraded in
New York city the other afternoon
Victorias, phaetons, buggies and car
riages, with liveried coachmen and
grooms, demonstrated the fact that the
horseless age has arrived, and all the
spavined and wind-galled hacks in the
freat city neighed a sigh of relief.
Mrs. Belmont is one of those who be
lieve that patriotism, like charity
should begin at home. In refusing to
subscribe to a hospital ship to be sent
to the Transvaal Mrs. Belmont does
not love England less but our soldiers
In the Philippines more. After the lat
ter have had all their wants supplied
it will be ample time for American
women by their contributions to equip
a hospital ship for the soldiers of the
Tidiest nation in the world.
Tb those familiar with the enormous
salaries paid to the judges of the
higher English courts it may come as
something of a surprise to learn that
the president in chief of the French
Cour de Cassation gets only about
$6,000 a year. In no country save the
United States do judicial salaries reach
in amount to even a third of those
paid in Great Britain. The heavy rise
in judicial salaries in England began
about the middle of the last century
based on the assumption that the pay
ment should be in ratio with the earn
ings of barristers from whom judges
were selected.
According to the annual crop report
of the Omaha Bee, compiled from re
ports of special correspondents in every
county in the state of Nebraska, "the
corn crop of 1899 exceeds the record of
the best previous year by 14,217,240
bushels. Previous to 1899 the greatest
corn crop was two years ago. The
figures show that the crop of 1899
reaches the enormous figure of 244,
125,093 bushels. The average yield per
acre is 34.5 bushels, and the quality of
the crop is excellent except in very Urn
lted portions of the state, where hot
feather in August damaged it some
what. The crop is not only the largest,
but taken as a whole is of as good
quality as any ever raised In the state.
Don't let us be too much alarmed
by the statistics of the organization
of corporations and "trusts" under the
laws of Maine, New Jersey, Delaware
and other states which are competing
with each other for the fees that pay
the expenses of state governments. In
many cases—in four out of five cases
at least—the record might read some
thing like this: "The Air Monopoly
company capital one hundred million
dollars nothing paid in never heard
of again after the organization papers
were filed." But all the same that
rhundred millions would swell the stat
istics of trusts, and many people would
become really alarmed lest the atmos
phere should be made the subject of a
trust.
The most memorable hour in the
first days on shore of Admiral Dewey,
when man's highest relations are
taken into account, was not that in
which the right hand of welcome was
given him by the president in behalf
of the American people. It was a
quiet hour in a Washington church,
when, at the admiral's request, the
minister thanked Almighty God for the
commander's safe return from sea. The
recognition of divine guidance and pro
tection was an example of loyalty to the
Ruler whose service is perfect freedom
and whose rewards are imperishable.

it would virtually compel them to
move their buildings and other prop

town would naturally spring up
around the railroad depot and utterly
ruin the present town of Tabor.

lesei'ting and six cannon which the in

the Filipinos until he can bring about
a d.-eisive light or they are scattered.
Mangalaren was strongly foi titled
with ritie pits commanding the roads,
but the insurgents abandoned the
place without tiring a shot.
Three hundred Spanish prisoners
who escaped from the captors before
he American advance, including civil
.itficers of rank, who had been in the
hands of the Filipinos for more than a
year, and many officers, have arrived
at Manila during the past week. Fran
cisco Reyes brought 100 of them from
(Jen. Wheaton. They were a motley
uprareled and bearded company. Some
were ill and had to be carried from
Tayuir to San Fabian in army wagons.
A delegation of these former prisoners
have visittd Gen. Otis in order to
thank him for his hospitality, which
inclrded the furnishing of food and
clothes. Senor Jamarillo, the Spanish
.'•omirissioner, is making arrangements
to send them to Spain on board of
Spanish transports.
Aguinaldo has collected more than
I.O(H) of his troops at the north. Prob
ably they will mostly desert him. A
number of small detachments of in
surg lit troops throughout the country
north of Manila have been captured
and the inhabitants manifest gratitude
for deliverance. Indications are that
the insurgent force south of Manila is
disintgrating and that the troops are
going to their homes. Reports from
the Southern islands are favorable.

DEWEY CONSULTED.
Regarding a Naval Station Near
Manila.
Washington, Nov. 29.—Admiral Dew
ey called at the navy department yes
terday in response to a request from
Secretary Ijong to discrss the question
of establishing a naval station at Cav
ite or other point near Manila. Such
a station is now in operation at Cav
ite. but it is foreseen that the require
ments of the navy may be greater than
those which are temporarily attended
to at Cavite. The admiral brought
with him portions of his report 1o be
incorporated in the full report of the
Philippine commission. This discusses
the establishment of a permanent na
val station for the Philippines, and
recommends Stibig bay. about sixty
miles from Manila, as preferable to
Cavite, as there is a fine harbor of
a
callable depth of water ami manv mit
ural advantages for making this a
strong naval establishment. While
\dmiral Dewey's view will doubtless
prevail when a permanent statiou is
established, this will be for con-'ress
to deal with, and the present purpose
is to utilize the Cavite station for the
current work on the warships.

ASK FEDERAL, IIEI,1».
President May Declare Martial I.nrr
In Kentucky.
Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 29. Senator
Deboe left for Washington at S o'clock
vesferdav. and after his departure a
storv emanating from Republican cir
j.jes was put abroad that in the event
Goebel is given a certificate of election
next Saturday by throwing out Jef
ferson Knox and Johnson counties,
Seu.tor Deboe, Senator Lindsay. Gov.
Bradley, Gen. Taylor and other Repub
lican leaders will unite in an appeal
to I'resident McKinley to declare mar
tial law in Kentucky, recognising Tay
lor as governor and supporting his ad
ministralion. Senator Deboe stated to
the Associated Press that he felt con
fident no emergency would arise ro
quiring the assistance of the federal
authorities, but intimated lie had as
surances that federal aid could be had
if it became necessary. There was no
change in the situation here yesterday
on either side.* The expected move of
Goebel leaders to take the guberna
torial controversy into the courts prior
to its handling by the state election
board has rot materialized so far. and
many believe it has been abandoned.
The story from Louisville that Jeffer
son ami' Elliott county returns had
been mysteriously lost or tampered
with is not credited here, as should
this occur, duplicate certificates could
be easily obtained and the theft of
them would not effect the result.
The hotels of the city are slowly till
ing up with visiting Republicans and
Democrats from many parts of the
State. The report that Warden Mill
ard. under direction of Goebel leaders,
is arming convicts and preparing to
take the Goebel side in the event
Bradley calls out troops Saturday is
absolutelv unfounded. It is probable
the sitting of the state election board
will extend over several days, and it
is stated that the Democratic com
missioners will refuse to begin can
vassing the returns iu the event Brad
ley places a military guard over -them.
BREAK THE CABLE.

Interrupted.
London, Nov. 21).—A fresh interrup
tion iu the East African cable service
at this interesting moment has caused
a sessation of war news. As yet tht,
war office has not received Lord Me
thuen's detailed list of casualties, nor
is anv Information at hand regarding
tlie whereabouts of the Ninth Lancers,
who were sent in pursuit of the Boers
from Gras Pan.
The Daily Mail says that a private
telegram announces the Lancers are
still scouting ahead of Methuon's ad
vancing column, but as he announced
yesterday that he was giving his men
a day's rest, this is hardly possivlc.
Indeed the greatest anxiety is felt and
more especially in view of the fact
that a Berlin journal, the Deutsche
warte, whi'-h regularly prints Boer
communications, announced yesterday
before it could have been ascertained
from British sources, that the naval
brigade lost WOmen at Gras Pan. and
that the Ninth Lancers were eapiured.
It is undtrstood the government yes
terday decided to proceed immediately
with the mobilization and embarkation
of a Sixth division of KM**) men. un
