SciintorStcwatt introduced a bill to fix presidential mid congressional salaries. It proposes to raise tlic salary of the President to $100,000 a year; llial of the Vice President and speaker of the House of Re presentatives to $20,000 each, and of each Senator, representative and delegate to $10,000. It is provided that the bill shall take effect March 4, igoo,. The salaries of. the highest public officals in the United States are ridiculously, small compared with the incomes of many prizes fighters and the average college president receives less than a first-class chef. The chief justice of the Supreme Court of the United States receives $10,500 a year, his associates $10,- 1000, Cabinet officers $8000 and ' Senators $5000. I In contrast to this an enthusi astic public contributes about $75.- .000 a year to the support of Robert Fitzsimmous, and several other I fighters have incomes measured by 1 the tens of thousands. I There are not more than half a j dozen college presidents in tne 'country who receive salaries of $10, 000 a year. The number who re- iceive even $5000 a year is com paratively small. 1 lirouguout the South and West the average is but $2000 or $3000 a year. There are a number of chefs in America with salaries of $10,000 a year, with valuable perquisites. A great many more, known in the pro fession as "seconds," receive $5000 a year. The contrast is especially re markable when cotupand with the conditions in other countries, notably Great Britain. England's lord chief justice receives $46,000 a year and the lord chancellor $50, 000, with a retiring pension of $25,000 a year. The positio'n of lord chief justice corresponds to our chief justice of the Supreme Court with but $10,500. The British secretaries of state receive $25,000 a year each and a life pension of $10,000 a year.1 The Cabinet offichds of the United States receive but $8000, seldom for a term of over four years, and no pension. The enormously re sponsible position of Attorney General of the United States pays $8000, or probably less than the salary of the cook who prepares his meals. The British attorney gene ral draws $35,000 a year with in cidental fees that bring his total public income up to $60,000 a year. The array salaries are out of all proportion with the pay of officers in otuer countries, rue imtisii army's commander-in-chief draws $33,000 a year. In contrast to this Lieutenant-General Miles receives only $7500 annually. While a British rear admiral receives $13, 600 a year, an American rear ad miral is paid but $6000. The same contrast is found all along the line. The speaker of the British House of Commons re ceives $25,000 a year and a house in London rent free. In America the Speaker of the House of Re presentatives and the president of the Senate receive but $8000 a year apiece. The contrast is es pecially remarkable in view of the fact that the average of salaries in the United States in the ordinary activities is higher than in any other country in the world. There are a number of railroad, bank and insurance presidents in the couutiy with salaries of $50,000 a year, and $25,000 a year has come to be the usual salary of the man in charge ol an important business.

The tropics being his natural home, he lives in cold countries only at the expeiiee of nil enormous outlay of labor, and pro bably also wtth a very considerable shortening of his life. The value of outdoor life is best appreciated by those accustomed to sedentary life when opportunity is afforded them to spend a few days in the open air. It needs no lengthy argument to demonstrate to such a person the value of con tinuous outdoor life as a health promoter. The value of such a life do.s not consist wholly in the purity of the air and the exercise, matters of great importance, but also in the cooling effect of the air in motion, and especially in the vitalizing influence of the sunshine. The rays of the sun, says Dr. J. H. Kcllog, contain heat and chemi cal rays as well as light rays. The heat acts powerfully upon the glands and vessels of the skin, 'while the chemical rays influence the nervous system in a remarkable way. It is the chemical rays which causa so called sunburn. The marvellous energy manifest ed in plant life is derived from the sun acting upon the green parts to organize and vitalize the elements of the earth and air into living sub stances. The same energy of the sunlight is essential to animal life. The sun bath is now a well-re cognized and much valued thera peutic agent. Iu this form of treatment the whole body is exposed to the di rect action of the sun's rays. Per sons who are not accustomed to ex posure to the sun, and individuals who have light hair and light skins, should make the first exposure to the sun of short duration ten of fifteen minutes. Longer exposures are likely to produce sunburn. No particular harm is done by sun burn, excepting the inconvenience occasioned by it. The pigmenta tion of the skin induced by sun burn protects the skin from further injury. The body may be exposed either in the open air or before a window. When the sun's rays are so intense that the heat is depressing, , the heat rays may be filtered out by means of a blue screen placed be tween the patient and the sun. After the sun bath a cold plunge, a cold shower, a cold towel rub, or a wet-sheet rnb should be ad ministered to tone the skin and the nerves. In the summer time in a hot climate the sun bath may be very conveniently taken in an outdoor gymnasium. A sand pile furnishes a most appropriate couch, as the heat which it accumulates may be utilized as an aid to induce per spiration when this is desired. The sun bath is useful iu almost every form of disease in which an acute febrile process Is not present. it is especially valuable 111 neu rasthenia, all forms of dyspepsia, rheumatism, diabetes, gout, skin disease and chronic maladies of every sort.

He was born at Anno Domini iu 1086 he had 435 wives besides children. The first was beheaded and exe cuted. The second was revoked.

Thousands of devotees play chess by correspondence, and there is a game now going on between a man in Canton, 0., and another in War saw, Russia, that it will take several years to complete, each move being sent by postal card from one player to the other. Cable matches are of frequent occurence and many persons will remember the international game that took place some years ago between a team made up of members of Con gress and one composed of members of the House of Commons. Dur ing that contest, one move was cabled across the Atlantic and a reply received iu forty seconds.
