The practical advantage of these t $ enemies of the lantana has at last systematic entomological war was shrub, which starting from a slip brought to these shores in a flower pot, has spread over and rendered useless, acres upon acres of pasturage, costing the owners thousands upon thousands of dollars to keep in some check. It was a fortunate thing that when Professor Koebele went away to Mexico there happened to be a highly trained and ex perienced entomologist on the Islands. But for the presence of such a man, (he consignments of larvae and full-formed insects a might have been lost, and, more serious still, parasites of the lan V tana destroyers might have been bred, and let loose, ncutralizincr tlie work of the destroyers and perhaps adding several new species to thc.delcterious insects which hav.c been introduced into the Islands. "All these parasites had to be killed, and on that ac count the lantana destroyers had to be bred in captivity. v iiivi-vjuiitiivtu ui jnuiiim jiuimju in ciuugu 01 mis section M nf tllf wnlr fxVlllIrl lifivn lihnn imnlln t- Ar fliic 1r1tnti niore liarin than good would have lantana destroyers are free from parasites, and are free to go 'A about their Work.

It must not be thought that the work of the 0 insect is instantaneous. Their progress is slow but it is sure. The value of one of the destroyers is not in its destruction of the plant g A itself, but in preventing reproduction by burrowing into the fruit. 6 1 litre nas seiciom ocen a more satisfactory piece of work than tins lantana fight, but as far as public interest is concerned it might have languished. The importations were saved through the fact of having a scientific man on the spot, who stayed here for the love of science, but who otherwise would have long ago been in England doing 'scientific work at one of the universities. :o: 11. 1 1 1 1 THE BASIS OF Some davs aeo the Star nointod hie men and close observers the continuance of America's phe nomenal prosperity was gauged by the margin between the de mand and supply of the home market; or at least that when the home supply fully met the home demand, and foreign markets 4 o I had to be looked to take a part of regular production, a readjust ment would be necessary, which to such concerns as were not prepared for it would come with On this point Mr. 'C. Seymour aSTCnt in tllP 1 Tnitpfl .tritpa snve 2. last, that as long as this country continues in its present prosper- O ous condition, absorbing all that it can produce in the way of iron 2 j) and steel, British manufacturers need not fear serious competition 2 9 in those articles in the world's markets. "It may be pointed out, $ however," continues Mr. Hell, "that on the strength of the con- 9 g siderable imports, much capital is being employed in extending g g existing and building new works in order to bring the supply up g 8 to the demand. The home market is. of course, the most profit- $ able for the manufacturer, and as long as the demand continues, 2 little thought will be paid to other and less profitable markets, 2 J except in the way of keeping them in view, so as to be able to tjji export on a large scale when the time arrives." Mr. Bell then j gives from an American technical journal statistics of the provi- 9 sion being made for increased production, and adds that this pros- 'A j perity. can not last; there must be "an overproduction exceeding X o anything hitherto experienced" from the increasing output and a f 2 falling demand at home. To meet this contingency, preparations 2 are being made by the railway, shipping, and other interests to 9 carry the surplus cheaply to foreign countries. "The last of the jj great combines the Atlantic shipping is doubtless part of this great scheme." Meanwhile, adds Mr. Bell, those British manu- 9 g facturers who have not already done so will have an opportunity 'A g. of remodeling their works and placing them in a condition to be 2 X A VCrV Striking illllRtrnttnn nf 2 in times of great domestic prosperity, is seen in the effect, on two 2 occasions, of the stoppage of the ! I ; 1 i goods. During the Boxer troubles the Southern cotton mills, which manufacture especially for the Chinese market, were re duced to such serious tstraits by the suspension of orders from China that they were forced to undertake the production of a class of goods which competed with the output of the New Eng land factories. Fortunately, the Chinese market was reopened to them just in time ,to prevent a crisis in the trade, which would probably have proved disastrous. In October last, for some rea son as yet unexplained, the 'Chinese demand for cotton 'sroods again fell off, and it was not until the middle of December that 9 the orders expected in October began to come in.

In cither case a heavy loss would have been inflicted1' upon an important interest. When , we reflect that our exports of cotton goods to China represent but a part; though the greater part, of our sales of such goods abroad, it may be seen that very serious results might follow the withdrawal of even part of the foreign demand for the product of a particular J industry. g Tl.n ..c.W f ATe T7...r,. nfrvimiiln - flint- lw. .-. r- . n X 1 llij lailil ui iLi. i-iinui a m in linn uiv; 'l ubjji 11 ui present enjoyed may receive a check and that it is not wise to reckon on continued prosperity.

Representative McAndrews of Chica go Is thinking of introducing .a bill providing for a congressional uniform. The idea was suggested to the Chicago democrat after he had been refused ad mittance at the treasury department one afternoon. All the government de partments are closed to visitors after o'clock and the watchmen at the doors refuse admittance to every one who cannot satisfy them that he has come on olilclal business. 'I am Representative McAndrews of Illinois," he said to the hesitating door guard. "Sorry, sir, said the watchman "but you ure the third Mr. McAndrews from Illinois who has tried to get past me in the last fifteen minutes. I happen to know that the entire Illinois delega tion Is not made up of MeAndrewses." Tlie Chicago member nllowed himself to be turned down and he made his way from the treasury building think ing hard how he could get ahead of the next watchman He finally decided that the easiest way would be to have a law enacted for a congressional uni form. "The bill should provide," said Mr. McAndrews, "that all congressmen wear their uniforms when engaged In olilclal business. The senators might be distinguished by having eight rows of gold braid on their sleeves while the representative's have but two. The law should also provide a penalty for any one caught wearing a uniform save a bona-llde member of congress. If congress takes this means to protect the dignity of Its members there will be a lot of sore watchmen, because I believe they take more delight In turn ing down a member than in anything they do in the line of duty."

Knew a Good Thing From a speech delivered y the "Sil ver Tongued" orator before the Inter national Congress: "And furthermore, do not lose sight of the examples held up before us, worked out by our predecessors. We have seen Immortal Rome rise, fall and decay; Carthage is now but a limping memory of the gorgeous splendor of Cleopatra's reign; glorious Athens of the past now rests silent and sad among the Grecian ruins, monuments of architectural beauty laid low by the ravages of time; and 'the Egypt of the Pharaohs has passed under tho rule of the 'barbarian.' Thus time levels all, but the works of man shall proclaim his worth and shall measure tho scope of his attainments. In our own day we behold the handiwork of man, in a markedly rising grade, advancing to ward the pinnacle of perfection.
