THE PHILIPPINE CHARACTER.
Urnve, Inconstant And ClmTlng ViHlnr Restraint* After years of study of the native character the writer has come to the conclusion that the Philippine Islander •s very matter of fact. He is not un willing, but unable, conscientiously, to accept an abstract theory. Christianity with its mysteries, has therefore no ef fect on his character, but he becomes accustomed to do that which his fore fathers were coerced to do, namely, to accept the eutward and visible signs without being Imbued by the inward and spiritual grace. The mere discip line—the fact that, nolens volens, they must at a given hour on a given day appear dressed in their best and attend the church and (In the case of head men) go to the monk's residence to "kiss hands"—has certainly had the effect of taming the masses into order ly beings. Yet restraint of any kind is repug nant to him. He likes to be as free as a bird, but he is of a pliant nature, and easily managed with just treatment. He is extremely sensitive to injustice. If he knows in his own mind that he lias done wrong he will submit to a thrashing without any thought of tak ing revenge. If he were punished out •of mere caprice, or with palpable in justice, he would always have a lurk ing desire to give quid pro quo. Ke has an innate contempt for cowards, hence his disdain for Chinese, but will follow a brave leader anywhere, and will never be the first to yield to hun ger, fatigue or possible chances of death. He takes every trouble with profound resignation; he promises ev erything and performs little; his word is not worth a straw, and he does not feel that lying is a sin. He is incon stant in the extreme and loyal so long as it suits him, but as a subject he can be easily moulded into any fashion which a Just, honest and merciful gov ernment would wish.—Contemporary Review. SWEARING IN THE ARMY. (.rant Wh Said to Have Dnnn It Once at the Ilattln of Slilloh. It is not generally known, but it is none the less a fact, that profanity is forbidden by both the army and navy regulations. Any soldier or sailor who does not like to be sworn at has a right to make a complaint, and the com manding officer is subject to trial by court martial. As a matter of fact, however, swearing in time of excite ment is not uncommon, and it is not infrequently the only kind of talk that has any influence. It is, therefore, no table that same of the greatest com manders in our army and navy have been distinguished for the moderation of ttieir language. The story of Admi ral Farragut's one oath at Mobile bay, when he said "Damn the torpedo's! (To ahead full speed," is familiar, and now comes a story about General Grant. It was told by General John P. Haw kins in answer to an inquiry as to whether General Horace Porter's state ment that General Grant never swore was true. General Hawkins replied; "I never heard Grant swear but once, and that was at Shiloh. Coming across a body of soldiers in retreat, he swung his horse across the road, and, with indignation shown in every feature, he flourished his sword and cried: "Go I back, you damned cowards! Go back!" It stems possible that this story is true. It took something in the way of an ex hibition of fear to make such men as Farragut and Grant swear.—Philadel phia Inquirer. How Armour Kui-nutl lit. Victoria, A near neighbor of Phil Armour, the multi-millionaire, tells the following story: Armour, as his friends know, goes to his office every morning at 6.30, long before any of his office men are at work. A little boy who knew of this habit of the rich man, looking one day from his mother's window, saw Mrs. Armour's Victoria standing before the door, and turned to his Ynother to ask: "Mamma, why haven't you a Victoria like Mrs. Armour?" "I already have four carriages, my dear," she answered, "and I think your father gives me everything he can af ford." "Wouldn't you like to have a Victo ria, too?" he persisted. "O yes, certainly," was the reply. "And do you really mean my fathei cannot afford to buy you one?" "I think not, dear." "Well, then," the boy flashed out, "1 tell you what to do. You make papa get up and go to work at half past six, as Mr. Armour does, and you can have a Victoria like Mrs. Armour's, too."— Success. l'cnny for a Priceless Itook. A workingman purchased for a penny an aged looking volume, bearing date of 1540. The man tried to read it, but threw up the attempt apparently in disgust, and the volume was relegated to the cupboard. A friend of his hap pened to see the book and took it to the British Museum authorities, who promptly made an offer of ninety pounds—the highest sum the librarian Is allowed to expend without a speeiai vote of the trustees. Had the man known what he was about he would have stood out for more, as the au thorities would have paid almost any price rather than allow the volume to slip through their fingers. It was, la fact, the first book printed by Guten berg, and was therefore almost price less. —London Tlt-Byts. "Is football a game?" asked the for eigner. "Punno," was the reply, "but foot ballers are. When a man breaks both his legs and dislocates his spine and thvi won't go off the field until the play is over, you bet he's game. Yes, i ■ir."—Pick Me Up. 1 FORGOT TO TAKE HIS BRIDE. Triiu Story of un A tment-Mimled Man's Weiltlintf lluy. Flw is a "true story" of an absent minded man to wliom It "came handy" to forget. Said one of his friends: "I could sit right here on this nail keg from now till the Connecticut river turns round nnd runs up stream an" tell you about the different things I know Ilauk forgot, llrst an' last; but I'll only mention otic Instance, an* that happened at the time Hank got mar ried. "You see, Hank knew his failin' as well as anybody, an' he was mortal afraid he would forgit about glviu' the minister his fee, so he kep' Ids mind glued right to that, an' completely for got everything else. "He was to be married in the evenln' at the parsonage, an' when he went round there, all by hintfe'lf. at the ap- H'inted time an' meandered into the parlor an' told the dominie to go ahead with the splicin', the good man looked up, sort o' puzzled and surprised like, an' said: " 'Haven't you—er—forgotten sulh in', Mr. liobbsr "'No,' said Hank, still thinkin' of the fee. 'l've got it right here in my vest pocket. Might us well pay you now as any timo.' " 'Why, bless you, my friend, 1 wasn't thinkin' of the fee,' said the parson. Time enough for that after I earn if! but—et—noticed you'd forgotten the bride, an'—" "'By jiinniiny !' says Hank, glanein' round, 'so I have. Mighty glad yon spoke of it! I was almost sure I'd for gotten somethin', but I couldn't think what it was.' "He grabbed his hat and went off on a jump after his intended. Ho got back before the dominie closed up the parsonage for the night, but it was a close shave, an' when the story got out 'twas a long while afore folks quit askin' Hank if he'd forgot anything lately."—Harpor's Magaziue. ANOTHER HISTORIC STORY GONE. The tlimoii. Circle In Chllllun Css le ill Not A lit'•! th\ Another familiar legend has been relegated to the limbo of the untrue, anil it is a question if there will be anything left for the next generation to pin Its faith to. This time it is the "Prisoner of Cliillon," beloved of and quoted by every school girl. In the coll where the "Prisoner" languished so long there was shown a circle wor i in the stones by lt!s feet In walking round and round a pillar to which he was chained. M. Vuillet. one of the members of the grand couneil of Vaud. was horrified to find that, in repaying the cell, "Chomiii ile Bonlvard," one of the souvenirs and attractions of the country had disappeared. He brought the matter before the council, and was chagrined to leant that the famous track had not been made by the cap tive whom Byron had made famous hut had been industriously seraped by successive keepers at Cliillon, who, for exhibiting it had received large pour hoircs from sympathetic and sen timental tourists.- Critic. Win K'enhiints Pnr n Mmi.o. It seems Incredible that so small nnd harmless an animal as a mouse is able to frighten an elephant out of his senses. One little mouse in the liny on which they are feeding will stam pede an entire herd. In their native land there are little animals, known as eliaennas. which feed on a small, sour berry of which elephants are very fond. They live in settlements, some thing after the manner of prairie dogs, under the berry bushes. When feed lug. the elephants trample the little towns, and the chncanus, in their fright, rnn up the tithes of the ele phants' trunks. Their long, sharp claws catch In the llesli and cannot be ejected. The more violently the mon ster blows through Its coiled trunk the more firmly the hooked claws of the little animal become imbedded in the llesli. Inflammation and death are the result. In captivity the elephants think they are in dnYiger of the deadly chacauas when they see a mouse.-- New York Sun. IIt Nn a* H !)<*rtir Talk of the Spartan mother! She was not in it with Mrs. Alnroney of New Haven, who soundly thrashed a son and had him arrested for desert ing front the volvffiteer service. When the war broke out John Marouey of New Haven joined a battery. I.ike many other volunteer soldiers he did not get to the front, nnd finally, when the war ended, he resolved to quit the service. Alnroney left camp without leave and made his way to his home. Mrs. Maroncy, whose husband fought through the civil war. knew something of martial affairs anil closely ques tioned her son. She discovered that he had deserted, and her wrath arose. Young Maroney ran out of the house, hut his mothc-t caught him in the yard and belabored him with a clothspole. Finally she dragged him to a police station and turned hint over to the captain as a deserter. Now Tliey I'ny M.o KrldrnmHlU* For some time It lias been the habit at New York weddings to pay the bridesmaids with jingling coin. "Bridesmaldship" in this way becomes a business. At one wedding thee were no less than fifteen bridesmaids, wlto were all punctually paid. Besides the beautiful toilets, given by the bride's father, they eaeli received S3O for appearing in the wedding train. There are young ladies who accept as much as SIOO for their "office of hon or." One woman who Is much sought aft er for her beauty, has ' appeared as bridesmaid at more than two hundred weddings, nnd has in a short time amassed quite a little fortune, besides many costly presents she received. ,c " COLUMBIAN, BLOOMSBURG, PA. What a Large Number of People are Enduring. A Distressing Condition in Which Many American People are Involved—The Only Way to Alleviate it. JYom the Mountaineer, Walhalla, N. Dakota. The remorse of a guilty stomach is what a very large majority of the people of this nation are sulk-ring with to-day. It is a well known fact that dyspepsia is a charac teristic American disease and it is frequently stated that 44 we arc a nation of dyspeptics." it is a distressing ailment and becuuse of its many forms is difficult to treat. Some times it is the result of improper modes of eating, improper food or mcutul worry and exhaustion; then again it nmy be sort of u depressed condition of the body and treat ment should be directed to the restoration of the health, without special attention to the stomach. In other instances, the diseuse is evidently the result of inflammation of the stomach. Anyone of these conditions produce a lack of vitality in the system, by cuusing the blood to lose its life-sustaining elements. The blood is the vital element in our lives and should be carefully nurtured. Restore the blood to its proper condition, dyspepsia will vanish and perfect health follow. For exumple, in the county of Pembina, North Dakota, u few miles from Walhalla, resides Mr. Ernest Snider; a man of sterling integrity, whose veracity cannot he doubted, lie was formerly a resident of Latudowne, Out., but removed to the west and is now a prosperous farmer. For three years he has been unable to do his work because be was ill with dyspepsia. 44 1 became seriously ill about three years ago, M he says, and consulted a doctor who pave me some medicine for indigestion. I continued to grow worse and several physi cians were called at intervals who gave me temporary relief, but the disease returned with all its accustomed severity.

A report is current that Messrs. Harpe' & Brothers, the publishers of Harper's Weekly , are about to issue a beautifully printed Pictorial History of the War with Spain. The report says that no expense or effort is be ing spared by the publishers to make this history the most accurate and authentic account of the war. as well as the handsomest souvenir of it, that can be produced. Many of the mag nificent illustrations which have ap peared from week to week in Harp ers Weekly during the summer will be included, while the literary portion will be contributed by the distin guished war correspondents of the house of Harper, and by many of the officers who took part in the war.
