AUGUST 20, 1904 As a matter of Education, it becomes the duty of everyone who can pos sibly do so to attend the World's Fair, but if this is not possible, it Is easily within the reach of every man, woman and child to secure the superb series of "Forest City" World's Fair Art Portfolios which we arc now distribut ing to our readers. It should be borne in mind that this is the official series, the originals of the views being taken by the official photographer, while the descriptions are all written by Walter B. Stevens, the Secretary of the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. The cost of these portfolios, dividend into thirty parts, each part containing 16 views, is merely nominal, it being only necessary to send or bring 10 cents, together with a "Forest City" coupon and any part issued will be delivered or mailed. The regular price of each portfolio is 25 cents, but we have secured a special concession which they highly appreciate, which is evidenced by the fact that the distribution Is increasing in popularity each week. o -Hr I Panama Canal I Hurts Europe with the Far East is concerned, and will give American ports a distinct advantage. The canal places even New York nearer Hongkong via Panama than Hamburg via the Suez. In this lies the "gravity of the situation," says the German. The paper continues: "Of j what real advantage the sole control of the waterway in times of war will be to the United States will be seen only after a long time. The conse quences for commercial navigation are more evident. If looked at with Euro pean eyes they appear small. What will the Panama Canal offer us? To J the whole of eastern Asia and to Australia, inclusive of New Zealand, the way via the Suez Canal will remain much the nearer for Europe. "The exchange of goods with the countries to which the lessening of dis- tancc is the greatest, namely, western Mexico and California, is of only mod erate importance. The saving of nautical miles between Hamburg and San Francisco and all harbors on the western coast north of Panama is 6,652; south of Panama the saving constantly decreases. Between Hamburg and Valparaiso it amounts to only about 2,400 nautical miles. 1 "This saving is very much larger for the eastern ports of the United ' States, namely, 9531 nautical miles between New York and San Francisco, so that New York on this route gains 2,889 nautical miles more than Ham- ' burg. But this is not all. The main fact is that this saving is so large on the route from New York to eastern Asia and Australia that it changes the present disadvantage of New York into an advantage. From Hamburg to Hongkong, via Suez, the distance is 10,542 nautical miles; from New York to Hongkong, via Suez, it is 11,655 miles. Hamburg therefore has an ad vantage of about 1,100 nautical miles. The Panama Canal will give nothing to Hamburg, but a saving of 1,820 nautical miles to New York, so that the distance will be only 9,835 nautical miles, 707 less than from Hamburg. In ro ites to the more northern ports of eastern Asia, as well as to those of . eastern Australia, the gain of New York grows very materially. From Ham burg, via Suez, to Alelbourne the distance is 12,367 nautical miles; from New York about 12,500. Via Panama, however, the distance from New York is only 10,427, so that it will be about 2,000 nautical miles nearer to the Aus- ! tralian port than Hamburg. To Yokohama the distance from Hamburg is ; 12,531 nautical miles; from New York, via Suez, it is 13,564 in round num bers 1,000 nautical miles longer than from Hamburg. Through the Panama route New York gains 3,729 nautical miles in the Japan lines; Hamburg 1 nothing. New York has therefore a distance of only 9,835 nautical miles to Yokohama that is, in round numbers, 3,700 nautical miles less than Ham burg. In shipping to Japan and northern China, and, in a lesser degree, to southern China and Australia, New York will have the advantage, on account of shorter steamer trips, over Hamburg and the English ports. If Europe has been heretofore in a more advantageous position, North America will be the favored party when the Panama Canal is built. . "Distance is, of course, not the only decisive factor; if it were Trieste would be of greater importance in the Far East than Liverpool and London. It is, however if great weight. The Panama Canal will favor the chances of the eastern ports of North America in an extraordinary degree." I I Psychological Mystery being and a dog. The main facts are corroborated by outside evidence, for the benefit of those who do not think that Rider Haggard's name is enough alone. The case, briefly stated, is as follows: Haggard awakened at midnight in the throes of a nightmare, his wife calling to him because he had disturbed her by making horrible and weird noises. On awkening throughly he stated that he had been having a terrible struggle and had dreamed that his pet dog Bob was in some fearful situation and was trying to tell him about it. He had dreamed that the dog was lying in some brush, near water. He felt that the dog was dying and, he says, "My own personality in some mysterious way seemed to be rising from the body of the dog." This was Haggard's experience, in a few words. The sequel is that subsequent investigations established practically beyond doubt that the dog was run over by a train, knocked from a bridge and fell into some brush, being finally found dead, floating in near-by water, and that the accident to the dog must have occurred at about the time when the novelist had his peculiar dream and nightmare and woke his wife by making "horrible and weird noises." These are the facts. It is for those who can to explain them. Haggard's explanation is: "The dog Bob, between whom and myself there existed a mutual attachment, either at the moment of his death, if his existence can conceivably have been prolonged till after 1 in the morning, or, as seems more probable, about three hours after that event, did succeed in calling my attention to its actual or recent plight by placing whatever portion of my J being is capable of receiving such impulses when enchained by sleep, into its own terrible position. That subsequently, as that chain of sleep was being broken by the voice of my wife calling me back to a normal condition of our human existence, with some last despairing effort, while that Indefinable part of me was being withdrawn from it (it will be remembered that in the dream I seemed to rise from the dog), it spoke to me, first trying to make use of my own tongue, and, failing therein, by some subtle means of 'com munication whereof 1 have no knowledge telling me that it was dying, for I taw no blood or wounds which would suggest this to my mind. "I recognize, further, that, if its dissolution took place at the moment when I dreamt, this communication must have been a form of that telepathy which Is now very generally acknowledged to occur between human beings from time to time and under special circumstances, but which I have never heard of as occurring between a human being and one of the lower animals, ' If, on the other hand, that dissolution happened, as 1 believe, over three hours previously what am I to say? Then it would seem that It must have been ome non-bodily but surviving purl of the life or of (he spirit of (lie Joe which, 10 noon as my deep sleep nve II am opportunity, reproduced those (lilnK In my mlmli an tliey liml ulrtimly occurrvd.

THE WARM WEATHER TONIC GO FOHT STREET Bishop Potter Is being roundly de nounced for taking part in the opening of a saloon which he was pleased to call a poor man's club It is hard to see wherein the bishop's saloon differs from thousands of others and It is no wonder that his actions produce a shock In the religious world. Every city that lias saloons has some which are run on the bishop's plan of making the liquor 'business resiectable. All the bishop seems to have accomplished Is to give a splendid advertisement to a new place, which at last accounts was doing enor mous business. A Merchant Marine Commission of Congress, appointed at the last session to make an extensive tour of the Unit ed States, 'Js on the Pacific coast anil Is being much entertained and talked to. Its mission is to study means of bet tering American shlplng, In ther wards to take up the old problem of restoilng American shipping. The successful accomplishment of Ir mission would bo of great benefit to Iluwall. What has happened to 'the corner in which General Stalkelburg was sup posed some doys ago to be fastened? Nothing seems to be going on except at Port Arthur, a condition of affair which lends color to the wtntement that other operations have Ijeen suspended in order to devote all possible energies to taking that fortress. Still it is not likely that any operations would be suspended, which would mean prac tically abandoned, If there was a chance of cutting off and capturing Stalkelburg's army. It would be well for the govarnniant to come to the aid of the antt-mosuul-to committee. The matter Is one to b5 studied by prospeotlve members of the next legislature, for there are regula tions which might properly be enacted us laws, which would matorlnlly assltit the work of freeing the city from the pest.

The obstinate skep tics in most cases do not matter, but when it conies to dealing with mosqui toes, a single householder, by ignoring the . work, can infect a whole district with pests. Whoever does so maintains a nuisance Just as much as if he kept an open cesspool, and the law should deal with his case. 4 The practicability of the plan is gen' erally recognized by the public. If the legislature will take hold and adopt some general rules, without going into too much detail, and give some author ity to the men in charge of the work, the latter will be able to do even more for the community than they have done now.
