AN
EFC1NT POSTMASTER
GENERAL.
The country Is well pleased with the
bringing of th po-stofP.ee department
upon a paying basis after a "period "of
deicits covering thirty years.
In St months the conduct of the pos
tal service has resulted in changing a
deficit of 17,T,770 for th fiscal year
1S11. During the last fiscal year the
audited revenues of tha department
were J237.S7J.S23, and the audited ex
penditures I23T,648.26. During the
vear certain small losses brought down
the surplus by f 1179."
"While such service as this to one's
cerowtry Is most meritorious,- it -is -a
coarse which breeds bitter enemies
hecause it cuts off revenue from thou
sands of people: and while the ene
mies one makes in well-doing may be
to his credit, these are all elaquers
who will serve any man or party who
will secure to them political pap; and
their known activity and persistence
has mora to do with throwing the de-
part merit back than any other one
ler protection for the workers is be
ing sought. e "of the "worst of these
is the phosphorus match industry,
which ruins many; workmeij.
' Chairman Underwood Of the ways
and means committee of congress has
notified .Congressman. Each of, Wisconsin,-
who introduced the "match
bill". one prohibiting the manufacture
and sale of phosphorus matches, that,
his measure will have a hearing as
soon -as congress convenes. The com
mittee already has received a state
ment from the Federation of Labor
legislation concerning the urgency of
immediate action and pointing ' out
that all other civilized nations have
already put a ban upon the phosphor
match. The reasons urged not -only
include the ghastly injury to those
who handle matches In the manufac
turing process, but the deaths of chil
dren who put the poisonous phosphor
us into.their mouths, as small children
arc sure to do.
Congressman Esch now has hopes
that the opposition to the bill b .
match manufacturers will not succeed
in its""defeat or mutilation. Ha made
this statement: "In congress during
the last session congress proposed fur
ther investigation by a commission,
but the senate amended the resolution
by striking wt practically all of its
provisions and substituting one con
lining the investigation to this single
inquiry, 'Whether or not white phos
phorus matches were fit subjects for
interstate commerce.' The house refused-
to concur, the conferees failed
to agree and so the resolution failed
of passage. This leaves the -entire
subject to be revived by the S?ixty
second congress.
Dr.. John B. Andrews, secretary of
the American Association for Labor;
legislation, made this statement, j
among others, to the committee: "To
one of the most modern establishments
owned by the same company since
1S80, records" of 40 cases of phosphor-
US poisoning were secured. Of this
number, 13 resulted in permanent de
formity through the loss of one or
both jaws, and several cases resulted
in death."
more than most people think. Looks
has been said to be a good letter of
credit when they are eight. Our minds
and our habits make or mend appear
ances. .It is not how we look to our
selves in our own mirror that brings
rejections or acceptances, but how we
look to the other fellow. Some faces
mirror honest and companionable
souls, and some faces are just a temp
tation to fate. A Cheery heart shines
through a ace. while a discontented
mind gives it a cast which puts it out
of favor. It is well when It can be
said of us: "In thy face I can see a
map of honor, truth and loyalty." It
does not matter so much about words
since it is in the eyes that the secrets
of the heart are carried we can say
what we will, "out we cannot at once
appear as we would like. Nature has
decreed that the -signs of character
shall be molded slowly and well ; and
that time shall be required to change
expression, xnis is the ruaaon that
correct living and thinking early in
life pay, for they bespeak for us fa
vor and advancement. -A fine face is
better than fine raiment if onry one is
to be possessed. ,

It is more respectable to belong to
the Baskers than the to the Hons of
Rest. The Sons of Kest Wer born
tried and loaf like effigies bat the
Baskers work smart tihtil they think it
is time to bask, ahd then they indulge
in their preferred dissipation, which is
to do nothing and to think of nothing
under the sun to Just abide in si
lence and get acquainted with them
selves. Basking is not modern, but
somewhat ancient, for Wordsworth has
been denominated the president of the
Baskers for all time, becauae he un
derstood how to bask and what eame
of It. which he embalmed for future
generations In these words: "Think
you, 'mid all this mighty sum of things
forever speaking, nothing sit itself will
come, but we must still be seeking.- No
less I deem that there are powers
which of themselves our mind impress.
And we can feel this mind of ours in
a wise passireness." This showed that
vi, orasworth recognised and realized
the advantage of going into the silence
which is being practiced and promoted
today by the New Thoughters, who
may yet see that basking is a good
name for this exercise. It is more than
rest it is revelation.
There are men who are said never
to icridW whn they are beateti, and 1
doubt, very mtich. whether this la a
compliment; but seme men who know
just when . to take a new tack are
quite likely mistaken for the other
class, although there is a great dif-
fwenee between them. It is- a good
thing ay way, to be a little duli to
adversity to be unyielding to rebuffs.
Conditions ha-e l to do with suc
cess than the will. - This ;as been
shown by the achievements of those
who h-ave been born deaf, -dumb and
blind, some of whom have become more
accomplished and distinguished than
men possessed of ail. their faculties.
It is a grave mistake to get to think
ing that the fates are against a body,
or that one's luck Is poor luck by
inheritance, as eome do, for it has
been written aa eternal truth: "As a
mroi -tinfiketla in his heart, so is he."
If the power Las been given man to
think himself into invalidism, into
imbecility ; arid luto the grave of the
sruicide, why should we not realise
that he can also think himself ijito
health and into the spirit ef achieve
ment: anl wrest success for himself
out ol .the competitions of life. The
power granted to man is not to over
come, but to bless him.

1 do not knew what yeu think of
books; but I do know there are a great
variety of opinions of them, and we
are approaching the season when a
warm fire and a good book are a com
fort and a pleasure. I find books are
pretty good companions. They do not
require you to agree with them, give
you no back talk, lay no wagers, and
do not bore the reader. They are
readily shot up when on has had
enough of them, and never complain
of rudeness- Books cannot corrupt a
reader unless he wants to be corrupt
ed. People who read pernicious books
like what is in them. Nothing will
show a man's aste better than the
books he reads; and if he indulges in
marginal markings or annotations he
leaves traces of his own character.
What a man gets out of a book de
pends npon the absorptive duality of
the reader, not upon the book. Some
minds find it easy to pervert the mean
ing ef good books: and not always be
cause they lack the power to interpret
them. A good course of reading is
always profitable: and miscellaneous
leading is both edifying and enter
taining. It does not take much of a
hook to be an improvement upon shop
talk or every day conversation.
The youna man who goes out to
work with the idea he is a wage slave
is not tuned tip to the key of success.
He has his mind in the right form to
be a delver, and to stay a defper ea
long as he lives. The man who is as
careful of the property of other people
as if it was his, and who knows any
conduct en his part which causes loss
to his employer causes loss to him,
is in the mood to so act that he will
get the good will of those who em
ploy him, and be regarded as indis
pensable to their success. The man
who, works in. the light is different
from the fellow who -works in the
shadow; and he is capable of accom
plishing more in a given time. It is
the man who works that makes, busi
ness satisfactory; and it is in the sat
isfaction of those who employ him
that, his prospects of advancement rest.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S
, CiSION. '
Attorney General Jobs A. Light of
Hartford, having reported to Governor
BaKwin that the act giving $38 a
year te invalid soldiers f the civil
war was ia his opinion unconstitu
tional, the editor of The Bulletin, real
ising that all the veteran soldiers of
eastern Connecticut would like i to
know hew his decision affected other
pension law, wrote him to inquire, and
we print for their edification the at-Ten-ey
general s courteous reply, which
as follows:
"I have your inquiry of the 1st
inst. and in reply will say that the
effect ef my derision holding uncon
stitutional the law pro-riding state
ai-i for soldiers, -will be to render the
inoperative, unless the comptrol
ler is compelled by mandamus pro
ceedings to make the payments au
thorised on law.
"-The comptroller feels justified in
taking this attituda by reason of the
fact that it would cost the state a
very eenstderable sum to provide ways
and means for carrying the law into
effect.
"Of course, my decision does not
operate to set the act aside. Nothing
short of a decision of the supreme
court can do that, but it may Justify
the comptroller's action in the prem
ises. rrhe statute in auestien ' does net
repeal the exemptions given te eld
soldiers- under Section 2315 ef the
General Statutes, and amendments
thereto; but simply provides that such
exemptions shall net apply to the
property of any person entitled to
state aid under the provisions of the
new law. So, if the new law is held
to be invalid, - the exemptions under
the old law will remain."

Do we understand the way of the
leaves more than we understand the
way of the winds? . Most people have
no interest in leaves, any more than
they have in other things. They never
wake up to the idea that about every
thing God has made differs in one way
and another. It is common to think
the frost or the wind removes the
leaves, but some leaves stay in their
place all winter, others yield to the
frost and the wind, while a few trees
drop tiieir leaves as methodically as
a person removes his clothes. But to
show all leaves are not alike, some
leaves refuse to come down. Had it
hot been for this, Oliver Wendell
Holmes would never have- written:
"And if I should live to be the last
leaf upon the tree in spring, let them
smile as I do now, at tiie old for
saken botigh where I -ling.'' The ma
ple and the catalpa drop their leaves
ail, at once, but the degree of cold
which prompts them to cast their foli
age are wide apart ten degrees or
more. And whether the winds blow
high or the frosts run low, the catalpa
holds its seed pods in place till spring
before it lets tt'c wind distribut them

exaggerated force. This is a quality
that should always be under good
control. It is so closely allied to the
imagination that It will play havoc with
our feelings and cultivate a lot of
prejudices which are neither within
sense nor reason, if we do not look
out for it. Sensitiveness under such
conditions is a disturber of ..the peace
and should be arrested; and since a
sheriff cannot be summoned we should
attend right to- the malcontent our
selves. AVhen it comes to the issue
whether we shall control our fault3 or
our faults control us, it is time for a
little tussle for supremacy; and it
does not take much energy well di

good control. The trouble Is we like

I nm inclined to think that the real

olares that "Holy men of God spake

divine purposes. which ' even they

Theodore" Tylpr was fond of roam

sense of companionship when alone
among the trees which seldom came

his month's vacation at the former's

knew the forest lay neas at hand with
its depths of shade and open tracts

he was to stay were not society folk.
They lived a simple life and laid aside

when theTe isn't .any moon, or on a
stormy night in winter. We don't have
electric lights just along here, and per
haps you noticed our paving is a i.t.le
loose- in spots." and the man chuckled
ever bis-own witticism. "You see that
show place over yonder," pointing a
rough, stubby finger to some builSJngs
in vie v. "They do say that man is
worth a million dollars and doesn't be
gin to spend his income." This last in
an awe-struck, hushed tone, which in- I
dicated his reverence and wonder at a
man so placed. "Mr. Thompson is a
plain looking ma a,, don't put on airs, ,
and meets us ail half-way. He has :
spent lots of money fixing up the old j
place, ana it is me nnetti uue a juiii
here. Perhaps you are going there?" i
"No," responded his passenger, I
an i to be-with Seymour Page, w ho
must be " ,"iving aoniewhere here
abouts." "Oh. yes, he is an artist fellow, who
has built what he calls a bungalow
down-.here a little ways further on. I
saw one of his pictures one day.
'Twasn't much to look at. just a clump
of trees and - green grass and can V
graxing, but they do say he gets big
prices for his work. It seems a queei
way for a man to get a living. Per
haps you are a painter, too."
"No, .1 am an architect. nowhere
near so famous as my friend Page.
He is a fine fellow and well worth
knowing.'
"Well, here we are at tlve roadway
leading to his place and there is soma
one waiting for you, I guess," and the
siage drew up alongside the edge of the
road to allow the passenger to nlieht,
and join his friend, who awaited him,
and cordially welcomed Tyler to his
quiet retired country home.
The call of the forest took the city
man out among the trees early the
next day. "Nobody else ever goes
there." his host had told htm, "so you
can lounge to your heart's content
without fear of interruption." A book
was tucked away in his pocket, and
he was- quite sure of a long forenoon
of solitude.
For some time he revelled in the
depths of dense growth, but at last he
struck a partly cleared path in the
woodland, which he followed aimlexs
ly not noticing where it led him. un
til he found himself quite near the
neighboring estate of the popular sum
mer resident described the day before
by the stage driver, and noon the
voice of the owner rang? out a call ot
recognition aod welcome.
"Well, well, T-vlr. who exected to
see you here! Didn t suvpose youl
ever got so far away fronr the New
Tork office.' "
"Oh. yes," was the reply. Then,
after a pause. "I knew you had a place
in this region, but I didn't know I was
so near, as I am with the Pages, yout
nearest neighbors.
"Yes. yes,-I understand. Wc -usually
have plenty of company it our
house, and could give you a merry
time of it. but just now we are- alone
except for iMrs, Thompson's com
panion a very charming young lady.
Come over tomorrow, and we will
I make it as pleasant for you as we can."
Tyler thanked the stars tout kept
him from "the merry time," and
agreed to visit them on the mornw.
Reaching the house at the time ap
pointed, he found Mrs. TbompMonr wsth
her companion seated on the wide ver
anda. Mrs. Tl-.cmpson presented tbe
young ladv in question- as Miss Ses
vey. Both she and Tyler gave an ex - 1
clamation of surprise, for she fmiml 1
in him a former acquaintance. auf lie i
recognized . society belle, wltom , he 3
had much admired, but whom lie f
could not approach , because of her
great wealth.
"You are old , acquaintances, I see,'
said Mrs.; Thompaon, and the con
versation turned to topics in which
they were all interested.
Soon the hostess was called away
and the talk - centered upon Home
promised gaitios of' the coming winter.
Miss Seavey eeemed not . to be plan
ning for them, and at last said plain
ly that she no longer attended such
festivities.
"Since my foi-tuue left me, I am
no longer included in mich affairs.
Indies' companions are not in society,
you know."
Tyler's heart hounded high with Joy.
Weallh had separated then), hut now
h felt tree to win th lulv- of hM
heart, if he could. . How well lie suc
ceeded the following season revk-uled,
and before another summer came, their
marriage ended the romance. 4 j
They spent their honeymoon in: the
Pace's home among the woods and
