Dyi* Mother CtelM Coarac* lor Her Jouraer Away fronf titer Little Danffh|erX A touching and most unusual little incident of a young mother who was hopelessly ill, but quite unconscious of her condition, is described by the i Boston Courier. One afternoon the physicians held a consultation, and afterward an* nounced to the husband and sister of the patient the sad fact that she had but a short time to live. It was questioned whether it would be advisable to tell the sick woman or not. They talked the matter over quite unmindful of little Edith, the five-year-old child of the dying wom an, who was quietly playing with her dolls, apparently unconscious of what was going on about her. In a few minutes the little girl left her toys, walked slowly up the stairs and went directly to her mother's room. With the aid of a chair she climbed on the bed, kissed her mother's pale cheek, and then asked her in low, tender tones: "Mamma, are you 'f'aid to die?" The mother was at first startled by the question and asked: "Who told you? Do they think" "Oh, mamma, dear," murmured the child, "you needn't be 'f'aid at all. Hold my hand tight shut your eyes close. I will stay by you, and when you wake up adain it will be all right." The eyes were closed, the hand tightly clasped for a few minutes, and when, a little later, the other members of the family entered the room the mother was quietly sleep ing, and the child said: "I told mamma, and she was not 'f'aid to die." The sick woman opened "her eyes and said: "Yes, I know, and I am not afraid." A SPINNING GHOST. Upon Inveatlamtloa Proved to Be Rat Enjoying: a Run Around tbe Wheel. On the post road in southern New Hampshire stands an old house which was once famous for its ghost. It had been a tavern, owned and man aged by two brothers and two sis ters named Mason, relates the Youth's Companion. The youngest of the family, Han nah, had been jilted in her youth. After her desertion she never entered any door save that of her own home, but gave all her strength to hard work. She would hatchel flax for weeks, spin unceasingly and weave on a hand loom, without apparently a thought of rest. She died after a short illness, and still travelers said that their slum bers were disturbed by the whir of the wheel. Soon it was whispered about that the Mason house was haunted. Strange sounds were heard from the garret where Hannah had always worked, and plainest of all was the hum of the great wool wheel. The brothers heard the story, and at once set out to solve the mystery. Joseph went to the garret and watched. After a time the wheel be gan to revolve He struck a light. On the rim of the wheel was a great rat, running around. Frequent visits to the garret ren dered this rat so tame that he would come out on the spinning wheel by daylight, and several others were oc casionally seen to take a spin in the wheel, as if it were a pleasant recre ation. A PRINCE'S EDUCATION. One Thine That Little Edward of York Rebelled Ag-alnat But Had to Learn. The present idol of the British pub lie is Prince Edward of York, eldest son of the duke of York, grandson of the prince of Wales, great-grandson of Queen Victoria, and heir in the direct line of the crown of Great Britain. Prince Edward, having been born on June 23, 1894, is now well into his sixth year, and regards himself as quite a big boy, says Youth's Companion. His brother Albert is a year younger, and the two princes have had, perhaps, their share, but no more, of brotherly "scraps." The duke of York is said not to have interfered with their small wars, saying that to "let them fight it out will make them better men." But he has interfered successfully with an other weakness of Prince Edward. It is customary for the royal chil dren, in meeting the queen, to kiss her hand and not her cheek but Prince Edward did not like to do this, aniob jected strenuously. One day he-heard some one speak of "her-majesty." "I know who 'her majesty' is," said he "it's just granny!"

But when he had arrived at the age of five he felt himself quite a man, and began to do as other men didkissed the queen's hand and always doffed his cap in her presence. Performed a Filial Duty. Joe was such a patheticlittle man. He came from a quarter of the city where crime and misery had formed a background for the five weary years of his unnatural little life. He was late to kindergarten one morning, and was asked to sit by the door until the morning exercises were over. Before being restored to grace the''teacher asked him why he was so late. "Well," replied Joe, "the patrol came after my mother, and I waited to see her o," "-Chicago Tribune. 4 Tb0 French Election*. *h& "Pari, la Prance" wai again disproved by tb* late election of mem bers of the chamber of deputies. While the result in Paris is a decided defeat for the government of M. Waldeck Rousseaud. thesingle pr mg W not a Ministeralist be e,ecte administration ing elected, the provinces have given a substantial in dorsement, returning a sufficient num ber of deputies to more than overbal ance the anti-Ministerial vote of the capital. As the municipal government of Paris was already antagonistic to the Waldeck-Rousseau administration, he is no worse off there than before the elections. The government had to meet the inimical influence of the Clericals in the west of France and the strong op position of the Militarists in the east, where the memory of the Franco-Prus sian war is still keen. In the central and southern regions the government has made gratifying gains. The vote everywhere was about one-fifth heav ier than at the last elections. The results on the whole give the conservative administration of M. Wal deck-Rousseau a safe majority of the 584 seats of the chamber of deputies. The time was when, to use an Ameri can expression, it might have been said that "as goes Paris so goes France." Happily for the safety of republican in stitutions in France,this is no longer so. The steadier and more representative provinces now outweigh the capital, the home of disintegration and political revolutions which have so frequently threatened the republic. Chicago Justifies Her Title. According to the annual summary of the weather bureau touching the ve locity of the wind in various sections of the country, Chicago leads all Amer lean cities in the total miles of wind movement during the year. This was 145,193, or an average of 16% miles an hour. At only two stations of the bu reau was the total wind mileage for Chicago exceeded. These were Block island, on the Rhode Island coast of the Atlantic, where the total for the year was 152,838 miles, and Mount I p* ocean from a height of 2,375 feet, where the total miles of wind move ment were 163,203, which is the highest point registered at any of the weather bureau station's. The lowest figures were at Roseburg, Or., where the total mileage was 30,471, or an average of 3% miles an hour. At the weather sta tion in New York the total miles of wind movement were 127,267, or an average of 14% miles an hour. The to tal movement in some other cities was as follows: Miles. Cleveland 128,566 Buffalo 125,042 Boston 98,755 Philadelphia 95,319 St, Louis ss 84,482 New Orleans 74,299 Louisville 70,396 Washington 63,629 By this showing Chicago is fully justified in the assumption of the title of "Windy City." On the 6th of June next, after forty one years of continuous service in the medical department of the army, Dr. George M. Sternberg, now surgeon generaL will be retired under the oper ations of the law. During these forty one years Dr. Sternberg has rendered his country inestimable serviceserv ice not less valuable and heroic than that rendered by generals in the field. There is now a bill before congress which has the approval of the war de partment which provides for the re tirement of Surgeon General Stern berg with the rank and emoluments of a major general. It would seem to be only even justice to thus provide for a faithful and efficient officer who has spent the greater part of a lifetime in one of the most important branches of the government service. Americans are the greatest beef eat ers in the world. The rate per capita of meat consumption in a year in the United States is a third larger than England, twice as large as France*, two and a half times larger than Ger many, Belgium or Denmark, three times as large as Russia and Ireland and six times as large as Italy. Thus when the trust boosts the prices to a point where many American families are forced to go without the meat diet to which they have been accustomed it is no wonder that indignant protests are raised all over the country. The discussion of the masculine shirt waist question has been reopened. While the shirt waist for men may or may not be in good form at certain social functions, the discussion of it has become decidedly threadbare. UK ,*J It is said that the American oyster will have a conspicuous place on the menu cards at the coronation banquets. It may be suggested also that there will be a good many American lobsters in.Condon at that time. The counterfeit cent is now supple mented by the counterfeit postal cards. Obviously the counterfeiting business is being conducted upon a very narrow margin of profits. Governor General Wood says that any statement that Rathbone did not have a fair trial is untrue. This is brief, but it is sufficiently pungent to be understood. ASK# "CUB A TO COME IN By Congressman FRANCIS G. NEWLAND8 of Nevada E Tamalpais, overlooking the Pacific idea is to give her a reduction of 25 per cent on all her products for 7 OR the first time in our history we have claimed the nght to annex territory which is to be subject to the jurisdiction of the United States and not a part of it. The right is asserted to hold the people of suc^t terri tory as subjects and not citizens. It is not to be expected that Cuba will be willing to assumej abject a position, and it is perfectly natural that she should fear to make the first overtures toward annexation on the ground that she may be put in the inferior position now occupied by the Philippine Is- lands. It seems to me, therefore, the part of wisdom for this gov- ernment to show her at this time that she has no reason for appre- hensions of this sort. The course by which this may be done is per- fectly simple. CUBA 18 NOW ASKING FOR COMMERCIAL UNION. THERE 18 NO REASON WHY WE SHOULD NOT MAKE A COUNTER PROPOSITION AND INVITE HER INTO A POLITICAL UNION WHICH WILL MEAN THE FREEST COMMERCIAL UNION AND WHICH WOULD ULTIMATELY MAKE OF CUBA ONE OF THE WEALTH- IEST, MOST PROSPEROUS AND MOST POWERFUL STATES IN THE UNION. COMMERCIAL UNION CAN ONLY E ACCOMPLISH E A POLITICAL UNION. The resolutions I have intro- duced invite Cuba to become a part of the United Statesnot a' subject territory. They provide that she is to have a territorial form of government under the constitution and laws of the United States, including the tariff laws, and that her people are to be citi- zens, not subjects, as are the people of Porto Rico and the Philip- pine Islandsin other words, to admit her as an infant state, with* the assurance of ultimate statehood. Of course, her admission to statehood would depend upon the rapidity with which she prepares herself. I do not believe that Cuba should be expected to make up her mind at once upon this THERE SHOULADT BE NOTH- FORCINsubject. HER INTO ANNEXION. one year or lor two years, in order to tide over existing or probable economic difficulties. I would make annexation the reason for these temporary reductions, its one purpose being to give the Cuban peo- ple an opportunity for deliberation and consideration unaffected by pending economic distress. I believe that in view of the fact that we have lately entered upon a policy of imperial expansion Cuba would naturally be reluctant to apply for annexation, fearing that her fate would be that of Porto Rico and the Philippine Islands. There seems to me no ques- tion that the time is opportune for extending such an invitation as I propose to the Cuban people. It does not involve anything like coercion or force. It gives them ample time for deliberation. It is the highest honor which the United States could extend, and it is an honor which, in my opinion, would be accepted. Men Should Try Men 1 Women Try Women By JAMES M. FITZSIMONS, Chief Justice of the City Court of New York AM CONVINCED THAT IF A YOUNG AND HAND SOME MAN WERE TRIED FOR MURDER, HIS JURORS BEING WOMEN, HE WOULD UNDOUBT- EDLY BE ACQUITTED. HIS PERSONALITY WOULD APPEAL TO THEM. This is much more true when a woman is tried by men. They cannot bring themselves without a mighty effort to send a young and it may be beautiful woman to her doom, and NOTH- ING AFFECTS A JURY SO MUCH A S A PAIR OF BEAU- TIFUL EYES USED WITH DISCRETION. A man has no knowledge of the inmost workings of a feminine mind. cannot fathom the deep down machinations of lovely woman. only knows that the stake is a woman's honor, a wom- an's freedom, and he acts accordingly. IT TAKES A WOMAN TO UNDERSTAND A WOMAN, TO KNOW HER TEMPTATIONS AND HER WEAKNESSES AND HER MOTIVES. It is often said that a woman has no sympathy for a woman. But let us pause and ask the question, "Is it sympathy or senti- mentality that sways a man I am inclined to the belief that it is pure sentiment. The law stands that a suspected criminal shall be tried and con- victed, if guilty, by the judgment of his peers, and this means, if it has any meaning, those who experience the same trials and trou- bles, joys, sorrows and temptations as the accused. How Woman Suffrage Works In Colorado By United States Senator THOMAS M. PATTERSON of Colorado QUAL SUFFRAGE, IN MY JUDGMENT, BROAD- ENS THE MINDS OF BOTH MEN AND WOM- EN It has certainly given us in Colorado candidates of better character and a higher class of officials. It is very true that husband and wife frequently vote alike. As the magnet draws the needle they go to the polls together. But women are not coerced. If a man were known to coerce his wife's vote, I believe he would be ridden out of town on a rail with a coat of tar and feathers. WOMEN'S LEGAL RIGHTS HAVE BEEN IMPROVED IN COLO- RADO 8INCE THEY OBTAINED THE BALLOT. THERE ARE NOW NO CIVIL DISTINCTIONS EXISTING BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN, AND E^UAL SUFFRAGE TEND8 TO MAKE POLITICAL AFFAIR8 BETTER, PURER AND MORE DESIRABLE FOR ALL WHO TAKE PART IN THEM.
