Jose Ives Limontour, the minister of finance, who is to act as head of the Mexican goTernment during the for eign trip of President Diaz, has for a long time been looked upon as the probable successor of the great execu tive in case of the latter's death or xe tirement from any cause. President Diaz is fast approaching the three Bcore and ten years of the psalmist, an! in the course of nature cannot ba ex pected to hold the reins of power for JOSE IVES LIMONTOUR. many more years. Senor Limontour 1? comparatively a young man and has for a long time been closely assoc'atsd with the Diaz government. He i3 also a thorough believer in the so-called Diaz policy, which is that of affording every protection and encouragement to foreign investors in Mexico. - The strength and permanency of President Diaz's government is largely due to the fact that he has always had the sup port of the foreign Interests, which are enormous, and the same support will, doubless, be given Senor Limonour while he occupies the position of chief power. Senor Limontour is also ex tremely popular with the people of Mexico. A short time ago he visit d all principal cities of the republic and was everywhere received with great de monstrations of pleasure. When he took the place of minister of finance he sacrificed large private interests and has ever since devoted himself to keep ing the financial and banking Interests of the country on a sound and conser vative basis.

One of the most curious memorials of the eighteenth century to ba found In London, the St. Marylebone court house, will soon pass from view, as It stands In the way of the modern improvements now going on in the world's metropolis. From an architec tural point of view, there is little to say for the gloomy looking structure, the front of which dates from the first quarter of the nineteenth century, though there are portions of the build ing which are of considerably earlier date, and may possibly have formed part or the original building erectad in 1729. Beneath the wing which forms the southern extremity of the building are to be found a series of the most gloomy looking cells that are to be seen anywhere. They are approached from an area by going down steps and are all below the level of the present MARLYEBONK COURTHOUSE, pavement. These cellars are at pres ent let out for' the storage of goods. . but their appearance Is quite dismal enough to supply material for the most bloodcurdling romance. Origin of a Lincoln Phrase. In an article in the February Review of Reviews George F. Parker suggests a possible origin of the phrase "gov ernment of the people, by the people, for the people." On page 53 of a book bearing the title "Some - Information Respecting - America. Collected by Thomas Cooper. Late of Manchester," and published in London In 179S. is round a similar phrase. The paragraph la which it occurs reads:, "There is i-'lijpi IFopiC'S little'fault to find with the government of America, either in principle or In practice; we have few taxes to pay, and those of acknowledged necessity and moderate In amount; we have no ani mosities about religion; it Is a subject about which no questions ate asked; we have few respecting political men or political measures; the present irri tation in men's minds in Great Britain and the discordant state of society on political accounts is not known there. The government is the government of the people and for the people." The words "of and "for" were printed In Italics In one edition and In small capi tals in another. Both editions had a wide sale in America, and Mr. Parker saya they "may have come to the- no tice of Lincoln -as a young man; nor would it be surprising for him to give new currency in almost its exact form to a sentiment written seventy years before." This, if true, detracts in no way from the masterly Gettysburg speech. Although originality was a strong characteristic of Lincoln, as it was of Franklin, he did not hesitati to take the good ideas and apt phrase; of others wherever he found them, and make ie of them to strengthen his ar guments. for "Brides of the Hoar. Some recent weddings in Chicago have been remarkable among other things for the gorgeousness of the bride's cakes, which were works of fanciful architecture in sugar. This fashion originated in Europe and was adopted in New York, where it is being carried to a costly extreme. At the wedding of Miss Elsie French and Mr. Vanderbilt the wedding cake measured four and one-half feet from the base to the topmost flower, which was one if its most interesting features. ; The queen of Holland has broken the record of the New York bride by ordering a wedding cake a foot higher. For one gorgeous cake, designed and executed by a Chicago firm, $600 was paid, and this did not include its trans portation to its destination, under the STATUESQUE WEDDING CAKE, care of two competent men who were obliged to travel with it in order to see that no injury was done its delicate decorations, and also in order to put it together on. the bridal table. Besides "the fairy tower no less than $25 is paid for the loaf the bride cuts, and when a crowded reception is giv-n the contents of the cake-loaded table prepared for the guests in the hallway coaxes at least another $500 from the indulgent parent that is, if the cake 13 good and the boxes covered and dec orated in proper and fashionable style. The Grand rtny Going Fast. The adjutant general of the Grand Army of the Republic reports that during the last year the death rate among its members has rapidly in creased. At present taps are being sounded over the graves of the old soldiers at the rate of 1,000 a month. During the last ten years the member ship of the order has decreased by more than a third. In the Department of Illinois the loss of death has been especially severe. During 1900 more than 3 per cent of the total enrollment at the beginning of the year answered the last summons. The flag has hung, at half mast more than once over every Grand Army post in the country. In- eTitably the death rate of the order must rapidly increase - with the pas sage of each year. Twenty years hence the men who wear the bronze star and eagle will -be a mere ; handful. The Grand Army will be practically extinct. The present membership of the order includes thousands of feeble and brok en old men, who are no longer able to follow their torn battle flags in the annual parades. Soon these memorial marches must be abandoned. Year by year the national encampments will be attended by a smaller number of mem bers. Already, many posts have been compelled to give up their charters be cause their muster roll had been re duced below the minimum allowed. SAYINGS id D01ii(iS JteXar HeathDealing Gctn. German, military men are beginning to realize that the rifle adopted .by the army for the use of smokeless pow der had some drawbacks. The breach did not closa per- fectly, the rep at ing mechanism was not all it should be, the magazine ac tion did not ccme up to the require ments and there were several other defects such ' as might be expected in a hastily impro vised arm. It was inevitable that an other and Tjctter weapon should be provided for the German army and the new rifle has now been Issued to a portion of the troops. The.e was, of - course, soma mystery attending its introduction a mystery originat ing in the fear of other- nations that they had not such an effective weapon.. Some Insisted that it was to be an au tomatic rifle, the like of which for rapid death-dealing., had . never been seen before.

The sighting is on a new principle, the sight being raised or lowered by a horizontal slid which moves along a graduated scale and is marked up to 2,000 yards. . The magazine resembles those of all the rifles of the Mauser system. It hclds five cartridges, which are arranged bo that the depth of the magazine is re duced. The cartridge clip is loaded Into the magazine from above, the pressure of the thumb sending it at once into the magazine and throwing out the used clip. The bayonet has a dagger-shaped extremity and is saw-backed. - It Is fixed to the rifle without touching the barrel or the foresight, and it does not interfere with the aim. The new rifle weighs four kilos, 100 grammes -without the bayonet, which . weighs 430 grammes, and its extreme range 4,000 meters. At 100 meters its bullet will pierce through eighty centimeters thickness of dry pine and fifty ' centi meters at 1,800 yards. The velocity of the bullet at twenty-five meters from the muzzle is 620 meters a second. J?1op the Looting in China. It is a relief to see that Field Mar shal Count von Waldersee has at last drawn up a plan for the ultimate with drawal of most of the allied soldiery from China. The record made by some of the allies since the relief of Pekin has been a disgrace to civilization. The so-called punitive expeditions sent out in every direction have looted, burned, and murdered in a style more sugges tive of the red. Indians than of civil ized nations. . Unopposed by armed re sistance, these raiding parties have killed large numbers of unarmed Chi nese, plundered their homes, commit ted criminal assault, and left a record of savagery far worse than that of the Boxers. A correspondent of the Co logne Volks Zeitung, writing from China, expresses the hope that these awful conditions may soon cease, add ing: ''The depravity and bestiality among our troops is enormously on the increase."
