Bob Ingersoii on Glover.
Robert G. Ingersoii was at one time
a guest of the Clover club and when it
came his turn to respond he got off
the following clever bit of clove^
talk: A wonderful thing is clover.
It means honey and cream that is to
say, the happy bees in perfumed fields,
and at the cottage gate old Bess the
bountiful, serenely chewing satisfac
tion's cud in that blessed pause that,
like a benediction falls between toil
and sleep. This clover makes me
dream of happy hours, of children's
rosy cheeks, of dimpled babies, of
wholesome loving wives of honest
men, of springs and running brooks
and violets, and all there is of stain
less joy in the peaceful human life.
A wonderful thing is clover. Drop
the 'c' and you have the happiest of
mankind. Take away the 'c' and 'r
and you have left the only thing that
makes a heaven of this dull and bar
ren earth. Cut off the 'r alone and
there remains a warm, deceitful bud,
bu it sweetens the breath and keeps
the peace in countless homes whose
masters frequent clubs. "Minnesota
Employment of Children.
A vigorous campaign against the
employment of children under sixteen
years old in factories, mills and work
shops in Minnesota is about to be con
ducted in every county of the State by
the State labor department, assisted
by the State superintendent of public
instruction and the county superin
tendents of schools.
The labor bureau will instruct its
inspectors to co-operate with the
school authorities in the various cities
and villages in an attempt to enforce
the child labor and compulsory edu
cation laws. The factory inspectors
will exaimne the lists of permits
granted to pupils by the city and .vil
lage superintendents with a view to
ascertaining whether excuses given by
the children are sufficient and whether
the law in other respects is being com
plied with.

Princeton, Minn.
"Marching Through Georgia" is said
to be the favorite tune of the Japs.
Native music has no marches, as it is
without "time." Japanese composers
have, however, since the -war began
remedied this defect by adapting va
rious foreign pieces. The soldiers have
picked up the new airs and sing with
great delight the Japanese words fitted
to them.
Henry Van Dyke says: "There are
two good rules which ought to be writ
ten on every heartnever believe any
thing bad about anybody unless you
positively know it is true, and never
tell even that unless you feel that It Is
absolutely necessary and that God is
listening while you tell it."
Those who complain that the finding
of the north pole would be of no prac
tical benefit to any one should consult
the gentlemen who manage explorers'
lecture tours.

Danger on the Rail.
A bulletin just issued by the inter
State commerce commission shows that
over 15,000 persons were killed or in
jured in railway accidents in this coun
try the first three months of 1905. This
ia at the rate of 60,000 casualties a
In 18SS there were 25,888 casualties.
Of course there has been an increase
in passenger traffic meanwhile, but so
have there been improvements in the
service. Evidently the multiplication
of safeguards does not keep pace with
the growth of lines and traffic. In this
connection the Engineering News, dis
cussing the new fast train enterprises,
says r1
The great defect of American railroad
ing today is not low speeds. It is too fre
quent accidents. Most American railway
trains are run at quite as high speed as
the existing track, rolling- stock and* signal
systems Justify. %t money is to be spent

travel safer So far as Increased speed Is
concerned, the traveling public as a whole

Japan's peace envoy brought alone
nearly 100 pieces of baggagethat is
to say, trunks. This shows the radical
difference between fighting and diplo
macy. If each of Oyama's peace en
voys in Manchuria was incumbered in
that fashion, the army would now be
floundering around the Yalu and Port
Arthur, and Baron Komura wouldn't
be here at all talking about peace.
Edward Atkinson says that the pro
fluctivity of the nation yields an annual
return equal to about $225 per capita,
and that all who spend more than that
amount yearly are getting more than
their share of good things. But if those
who spend in excess of their share are*
the ones who earned in excess the deal
is about square.
