A pleasant incident in connection with the reception of the United Spanish War Veterans by President Roosevelt at the White House came to light today. It was the meeting bit ween Col. Roosevelt and Capt. William E. English of Indianapolis, past commander-in-chief of the I'nitett Spanish War Veterans. When Capt. English and Mrs. English were reached in the line of veterans, the President stopped the whole line while he warmly clasped the | hand of Capt. English and said to those nearby: "Capt. English and 1 had a little experience at Santiago that will always draw us closely together, for the same shrapnel shell that gave his horse a wound, causing his own severe injury by the horse falling with and upon him. also gave me a slight wound on the arm. I am always glad to greet Capt. English, you may be sure." One of Georgia's Delegates. Among the familiar faces at the encampment was that of Capt. Chas. W. Parker, who was a delegate from Georgia. He is the chief signal otticer-elect of the national body and while here was greeted by many of his former associates. After serving seventeen years in the Ohio National Guard Cant. Parker went into the Spanish Amer lean war as regimental quartermaster In the 2d I'nlted States Volunteer Knglneers.

The former is. In fact, the personal representative?the private secretary and confidential man, if you will?of tho latter. It Is he who receives and carries out the orders of the commander-in-chief.

P.\s Weekly of London. A peculiar Interest attaches to any house In which a great man has lived?it Is as If its atmosphere had somehow been lifted out of the commonplace by the clinging reminiscences of a temperament abnormal In efficiency and thought. And recently an article in Le Mercurie of Paris was devoted to nothing but an impression of tho house which Rubens built for himself at Antwerp, a beautiful house with a beautiful garden, spacious, reserved, discreetly ornate and sumptuously distinguished. Above the door is a plate bearing the following ins. rlj>tIon in Flemish: P. P. Rubens, Born at Antwerp, 1577. Built this house, lUl'J. Died in it. 1W0. The statement is like a little epitome of the man's life; hut, as a matter of fact, though Rubens was born and also settled and died In Antwerp, he spent much of Ills life in other places. Few people remember that in addition to being one of the most prolific of great painters, Rubens was also a very distinguished society man. remarkable for culture, charm of manner, tact and the management of political affairs. As a child lie was a page, uu ~ P.. ..ill*.. r . _ . i I uxiv.il ins cAuaui uuiai y ificniij lur umw m? induced his people to send him as a pnpil to Van Haeght, a landscape painter, famous in his day. At twenty-three he went to Venice to study painting there, and <it the same time became gentleman of the rliam- I ber and court painter to tlie Duke of Man* tua. Later on the duke seni him on a political mission to Philip II of Spain, where he enjoyed all the attentions of an ambassador. This coblnation of the political official and the artist is a curious fact in Kubens' life. For in Spain, having successfully managed the mission upon which he had been sent, he painted portraits of the king and several of the grandees of the court, besides large subject pictures. Rubens was very unlike his pictures. In his paintings the escape from excess is always only very narrowly done, but in his person he was full of selfcontrol, dignity and a gentle urbanltj. An Englishman, Sir Dudley Carlton, called him "the prince of painters and a gentleman," and he was extraordinarily handsome to the end. He was also tender-hearted. When his mother died, in 1608. he suffered so acutely that he shut himself un in a mimaalwv for four months, refusing to see any one. find thlB at a time when his popularity was already extraordinarily great. He was twice married, the famous Helen Fourment, .said to have been only sixteen when he married, feeing his second wife. Reubens' answer to an alchemist gives a good idi-a of his temperament. The alchemist had come to beg for money with which to find the philosopher's stone. "My friend," said Rubens, "you come too late. I found that twenty years ago with this palette and these brushes." concerning sweat. From the Chicago Chronicle. To the editor of the Chicago Chronicle: As a reader and admirer of the Chronicle you must pardon me for calling your attention to the fact that in two editorials on the same day you used the word "sweat." I must confess It gave mo something of a shock. I have always regarded the word as vulgar -and am astonished to meet with It in the editorials of such a newspaper as the Chronicle. ARGUS. This is a highly appropriate topic for the ' heated term, and the criticism, though it does not seem to have any merit, will be treated as seriously as if It had. "Argus" no doubt refers to the illstinotlon between "sweat" and "perspiration." He would say of a horse that he "sweated," but of a man that he "perspired." The distinction is a common one, but he .has strangely overlooked the fact that It was duly observed in the editorial referred to, which aDDlied the word only to horses and cows. At the same time there ia no great Impropriety in applying the word to human beings. The substitution of the word "perspiration" for It is a sort of modern fad and the good old Saxon word for man and beast was "sweat." One of the finest models of the English language is the Bible, in which the word "perspiration" in not found, and In which the word "sweat" occurs in ever-memorable passages. The primal curse on man In the garden of Eden was, "In the sweat of thy face thou shalt eat bread," and con cerning the awrui spectacle in the garden of Gethsemane, it is said, "His sweat -was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." There is a demon' forever at work tinkering the English language, and never for the better. This demon has found out that man Is not an "animal" and makes intelligent people speak of "men and animals." Another piece of his handiwork was the distinction between "sweat" and "perspiration." It is settled now, but it was for a long time a mere fad. The transition period was illustrated in the remark of an old preacher in the south that he "perspired a great deal of sweat." "Sweat" is not onlv a Brood word but a. good thing. Nobody Is healthy or strong without It. There Is no greater marvel and no greater blessing in connection with the human economy. The Chronicle advises "Argus" to sweat freely and not to be , ashamed to confess it. 1 < > Mahogany Dining Chairs, 4 ' J Sideboards, China Closets, ' > Ext.

Last night at Elmira the following letter was received from William Randolph Hearst accepting the democratic nomination for governor of New York state. It was addressed to William J. Conners, dhairman of th'' democratic state committee: William J. Conners, Chairman Democratic State Committee?Dear Sir: I accept the nomination of the democratic party, bearing In mind the record of that great party In the past, and knowing that the meml>ership of the party is determined still to be ruled by the principles of Jefferson and Jackson, and guided by democracy's ideal, "the greatest good of the greatest number." To study the work, the beliefs and the faithful efforts of the democracy's great leaders is an inspiration to all mi n sincerely in accord with the American theory of gov- j ernment. True democrats must stand with Jefferson and Jackson, for the best interest of the whole citizenship, rather than for the selfish interests of anv particular class or Individ ual seeking for special privilege. It cannot be denied that certain individuals and classes have at times secured control of the machinery of the democratic party and attempted to use it for their own personal or class profit. The duty of true democrats is to drive from the party those that represent only special Interests and those that seek to promote such Interests at the expense of the general welfare. The democratic convention at Buffalo did this In a most conspicuous and effective manner. Democrats so-called, but seekers after spinial privileges In reality, were driven over into the republican party, where those or ineir cias3 nourisn. The line Is now, clearly drawn between gptn'ial privilege on the one hand and equal opportunity on the other. The democratic party, purged In this state of corporation control and pledged to end the boss control through which corporations act, now has an opportunity to serve the people as efficiently as It did In the times of Jefferson and Jackson. Lest We Forget. We know how quickly men will forget. If allowed to do so, the rights or the masses of the people. Already, in the time of Jefferson, the socaHod aristocracy had begun to look upon the Declaration of Independence as a theoretical expression of sentiment not to be considered practical or actually binding. Already, In Jefferson's diay, this selfcfooeen aristoofticy expressed .doubt of the o ?\.j IUI 6'4* nui\;ui. Invariably we find that a declaration by the people of their determination to rule must constantly be followed1 up, constantly protected against the determined effort ot Individuals to take over for their own interests the governing poorer that the people are righteously determined to keep in their own ihands. Today we see again the effort to deprive the people of self-government, to vest the powers of government in the hands of corporation attorneys representing special interests. This un-American condition reached Its climax in the state of New York as illustrated in the New York city election last year. On that occasion the disbelief of the trusts In the ability or the right of the people to govern themselves extended even to taking away from the people the right to vote and to have their votes counted. It Is clear that there is urgent need of strong, determined, united action by the people of thje country, when the corporations reach a degree of hardihood in Which they actually order their employes In office toforbld the counting of the people's votes, and then reward these public officials, faithless to the people, by again nominating them for office, that the people may again be betrayed. One for the Judges. I refer to members of the republican legls mure ana to *uie auunitiy general, renominated now by the republican party machine as a reward for refusing to the people the right to count their own ballots. The people have not only a right to selfgovernment, but they have alone the capacity for self-government on a permanent. just, enduring dusis. Just government In a republic demands that government shall be carried on In accordance with the needs of the mass of tho people. How can an Individual or class seeking special privileges know what the people want or what they need? How can a self-chosen aristocracy underctnnil the needs of a nation, and how In the nature of things can they be expected, if in power, to represent anything save their own selfish interests? The people can alone understand and constantly supply their own needs. The duty that devolves upon democrats and all of those anxious to preserve American institutions is not complex or beyond the ordinary understanding. Property Bights Sacred.

The attitude that the democracy should take toward great capitalistic organizations now is precisely that of Jackson toward the United Slates Bank, which appeared as a menace In his day. The property right of every man and of every organization of any kind must be respected, but today, as In the days of Jackuan It la ?iuniicu'i r\r fViut rtr\ iintL'u? shall rise up greater than the government, or menacing to the government. Tiie democrats of today must declare, and they must mean, that no matter how groat the wealth of individuals or corporations, that wealth must not tie an irresponsible dominating power In government. Money in Elections. No organization of money, however great, must overrule the votes of the citizens, or deprive of his vote any single citizen. Tlie activity of trusts in politics and their power, in government have been, unfortunately. great, and very plain to all in recent years. The trusts absolutely inimical to the public, welfare have been able to dominate In both parties by giving special rewards to unscrupulous bosses, and thus nominating on l>oth sides candidates subsequently controlled by the trusts. Money has been used before elections to Influence nominations and to defeat the public will on election days. Ana alter election money is used to iinoe legislatures, to buy ' laws that organized capital wants, or to buy Immunity from laws passed in the people's Interests. There are certain Imperative demands which represent the popular will at present. But these demands, based on Justice and right, Uo not caK' for any new theory of government, for any new political or social system In our nation. They simply demand enforcement of American principles, of democratic principles, as those principles have existed for mora than a century. Eight-Hour Law. r\M<nlA ito tr* ?n<-? unv mi?*<ctinn jfomfirxi *"V MV/ W..W VVU>W1>. open primaries and the passage of direct i nomination laws to bring the government | airectly under the control of the peopl-e. The passage of such laws would be purely and simply democratic. For democracy demands, above all, the greatest good for the greatest number. And the welfare of the majority demands that the voters Khali have alJ possible control of those whom they put in office. The enforcement ..of the eight-hour law in government work, the enforcement of tae ihw concerning lite prevHiiuig iaL?tjL w.tgea, 1h demanded by the people, and it is demanded l>y a democratic principle as old as the Declaration of Independence. Control by the government of railroads and railroad rates means control of a national necessity upon which the prosperity and the comfort of the whole people depend. The people demand honest, rigid government Inspection and control of the banking department and the insurance department in the state of New YorK. That again Is simply an expression of democratic doctrine. The welfare of the people depends upon honesty on tno part or tnose to wnom ineir savings are Intrusted. It is plain, old-fashioned democrkcy to demand that the government shall protect the savings of the honest citizen and protect his family ngjinst dishonesty in banking or in insurance concerns that operate under government sanction. Accepts With Thanks. Democracy speaks also in denunciation of the great Chinese labor menace, which Is now revived because of the Introduction on a large scale of Chinese labor at Panama. The suggestion to introduce into this country and to employ by the taxpayers of this country a people of low intelligence, and still lower morals, is an attack upon thA welfare moral and material, of Am:>i-i can citizenship. A Chinese Invasion, which menaces the nation, In view of unlimited importation of Chinese to this continent, would mean Inevitably a lowering of the standard of living In this country and a positive danger to our high civilization. The old democratic principle, "The greatest good of the greatest number," demands sternest rebuke at the polls of this shame ful disregard of the public will shown In the opening by the United States government of bids for Chinese labor. I accept tho nomination of the democracy proudly, as I recall the great names from Jefferson to Tilden that the party has honored and that have honored the party. I accept the nomination glady, realizing the opportunity for useful work which Is offered today to all of those that may be elected to office as servants of the people, and anxious to deserve the confidence of the people. I promise faithfully. If elected, to do all that I can as a citizen of the United States In office to realize and apply the great principles of the historic democratic party. I pledge myself to work with others to rid the democratic party, and so far as poa slblo all branches of government, or tnai plutocratic trust element that seeks to rule both parties and to destroy the democratic party utterly.

Put on Heavier Clothing and Keep w arm 00 Tamnovin + iii'o "IT olio ww * *u a v*u j/v i n vvtt v * At?* From the New York Herald. Coughs and "colds" are just now very prevaJetit In consequence of the lowered temperature of tho last few days. Th* sudden change has taken us unawares and there Is widespread suffering as the results Indeed, the catarrhal affections are ulni"st of epidemic form. We are hardly prepared for almost winter weather in early autumn. In many homes the fires have not l?ee? started and the discomforting chilliness is doing Its work. The ordinary attack of cold is the consequence of a. general cooling of the body, whereby the blood from tho surface la forced upon the internal organs. The nm cous membranes of the imse and bronchial passages are ttiose most afTeeted, becoming congested and inflamed and relieving th>ir turgidity by copious secretions. Nature is always kind ei.ough t<? give us due warning of an attack of tht- distemper by a sense of shivering ind chilliness. The longer these sensations last the more the danger. The continuance of the coldness not onljr lowers vital resistance, but indirectly i an-"* a more or less permanent congestion <>i the deener nnrts* o' the bodv This ootid it inn is brought about more- particularly )>y sitting in cold rooms, by exposure to draughts and by insufficient clothing. The strong and healthy individual is least liable to such Influences, hut sooner or later If the cause be continually working he succumbs. It is the penalty of inattention to little things. In this climate on* cannot live by any rule of season- Th? . almanac is 110 criterion for dressing to keep comfortable. The thermometer is tin onljr true Interpreter of our needs in that regard. In coming cold weather the first (hang* should be with the underclothing. Th? Englishman understands this necessit> better than we do, puts on his under woolens, and even during winter can endure a low temperature in his room which would tnako comfortable. It is a matter of training tho body to meet cofistajitly occurring emergencies. We say his house Is always cooler than ours, which is true enough, but he wisely conserves his bodily heat by proper clothing rather than obtain It bj an overdriven hot-air furnace. When we admit that weakened vital resistance is the usual forerunner of catarrhal troubles we havo the strongest reason* for counteracting such Influence. The cold morning plunge has answered this question very satisfactorily for such as have the hardihood to keep up the practice the year round. Such persons seldom take "cold." when their weaker brothers would be certain of a severe seizure. They have the extra glow of skin, an increased surface warmth that acts as an extra garment, always with them and always a ready protective against any sudden change of temperature. The opposite to this condition is that in duced by the Am<Tican habit of overheating our apartments and making us doubly susceptible to the cold outside. YVe cati keep comfortable without baking ourselves. All these precautions may seem trivial to the one who does not stop and think. Now Is the time, however, to make the good resolutions, backed by sensible practices. that will enable most of us to escape all the numerous catarrhal troubles which wa are made to be-lleve will come to us whether or no. Then, too, the pneumo-coccus may be waiting for his fatal inning. Mahogany's "Discovery." From Home Notes. Every one knows how effective and handsome mahogany Is when used for good furniture, but few know how its value was first discovered. In the latter part of the seventeenth century a London physician had a brother engaged In trade with the West Indies who, on one occasion, brought home several logs of mahogany rs ballast. The doctor was building a house, and his brother suggested that the logs wou'.d serve for ceiling beams. Acting on the proposal the doctor gave or ders to tne worKmen to umnc use ul mc mahogany, but their tools were not equal to the task of cutting the hard wood, and tlfc; logs were put out of the way in a corner in the garden. Some time afterward the head carpenter tried to make a box from the wood, but was unsuccessful with ordinary tools. He told the doctor, who was interested in the baffling timber, and ordered heavier tools to be made to work It with. When this was done, and a box at last made and polished, it was so handsome^that a bureau was made from another of the despised logs, and this was dec'ared by experts to be so superior to other furniture-making woods that the craze for mahogany set in, and furniture made from it became highly popular, the then Duchess of Buckingham fostering the craze in the fashionable world.
