Ur. Billtops on the Fancies Cherished
by Both Men and Women.
From the New Tork Sun.
"We all dream dreams." said Mr. Bllltops.
"and I suppose If we could look Into our
neighbor's heart, be that neighbor man or
woman, we might And there cherished
aspirations and fancies fantastically at
variance with the said neighbor's con
ventional demeanor and orderly lire.
"A man I know, energetic, capable, effective,
successful and In all his life notably
systematic, tells me that if he could do as
he would like to do he would be a tramp.
No less-a person than Mrs. Billtops. paragon
of domesticity and devotion, confides to
me that she always wanted to be an actress.
Let us be grateful that actually she
chose to play her charming part on the
Billtop household stage.
"But we all dream dreams, and, though
we may never realize them, yet we cherish
them through life, and?or so for the great
majority of us?they do us no harm. True,
some of us waste time In dreaming, and
some of us fairly run away In pursuit of
1 dreams, searching for the pot of gold at
) the foot of the rainbow, but most of us
work and drea.m, and our dreams do no
j harm.
"We admire the heroes of history and we
' love the heroes of romance, for we would
t like to be like them, and fondly we fancy
[ we might be placed In like circumstances.
, The gentle girl dreams of a splendid lover.
the strong man dreams of the achievement
of his ambition.
"We dream of fine houses and carriages
and Jewels, or It may be that the dreams
of many of us?but these as soaring In
their way, perhaps, as loftier dreams of
others?carry us only Into the clouds of
comfort. Or. dissatisfied with our lot or
calling In life, we dream of a day when
it will be happier.
"But all these are only the familiar
dreams?the dreams commonly Indulged.
We have many strange dreams, and these
may be harbored by the seemingly moat
prosaic, "as well as by those most impressionable.
If we could look Into the heart
of our neighbor, man or woman, we might
be amused or amazed.
"Necessity Is our greatest blessing; tt
keeps us at work and it Is In work in accomplishing
things that man flnds his only
real enjoyment. And for the rest of us
work keeps us busy; It gives us little time
for dreams, and these may then be a solace
to us and they may stimulate us to greater
endeavor, but necessity keeps our feet on
the earth, and so by labor we are saved.
"But we all dream dreams,"
Look at the Bright Side.
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
It Is a common saying that there are
always two ways of looking at a thing,
and, again, that there are always two
sides to a matter. In no phase of experience
Is this more true than In the way
In which we look at life. Some regard it
with eyas, hearts and minds run or nope?
i that hope which "springs eternal In the
i human breast;" that hope which Mrs.
i Browning describes as searching for fruits
i of light,
"Her fair quick feet being armed from stone*
and cold
By slippers of pure gold."
' Others, on the contrary, look at life with
i warped minds, saddened hearts and sorrowful
eyes, ever expecting the worst, and
therefore unable to appreciate the good.
If you remind them that after night comes
the dawn, after the storm the calm, they
retort by telling you that these sayings can
be reversed with equal truth. If you say
! that every cloud has a sliver lining, they
ask you, "What about those that are opposite
the sun?" Their pessimism blinds them
to the fact that those that are indeed opposite
the sun lie piled, mountain upon
mountain of snowy whiteness, tinged with
raint>ow hues.
There can be no doubt as to which of
> these two classes does most good in the
worM, which is helping on the happiness of
the race and the individual, or which Is
likely to be most efficient In any sphere of
duty to which their lot in life may assign
them. Although in the field of evolution a
great change has taken place since man
began his upward career of development
of mind, in that he now makes his own
environment and triumphs over the natural
environment, still the law holds good that
the environment tells upon the individual.
If we create for ourselves an environment

ing upon good as fortuitous in a mass that
is generally evil, we cannot be surprised if I
we become insensible to the rood; If, as it I
w?re, we become color-blind and see thff I
bright and glorious roses only aa green
among the green. If for no other reason,
yet for this, that we may enjoy the variety
and color of life, it is well to learn to look
on the bright side, for In adaptation to environment
lies the power to see things as
they really are.

The Little Pyrenean Republic That
Flays Spaniards Against French.
From th? Saturday Rrrlew.
Andorra in vaffUolv annlrAn nf ?* a
Independent republic; it 1b In truth a collection
of families following patriarchal
customs centuries old under the beneficent
protection of two powerful neighbors. That
It has never been swallowed by either Is
probably due to tfie double fact that commercially
it Is of little value and politically
the rights of both suzerains are shadowy
and Indefinable. Feudal In origin, the
Spanish rights are centered in the neighboring
bishopric of I'rgel. while the French
trace their claim through the Counts of
Foix, whose rights were swallowed up by
the royal power and later taken over by
the republic. Kach suzerain appoints an
agent (or viguler). Suitors may. but hardly
ever do, appeal from local decisions to
either a Spanish court at I'rgel or a French
uue ai x-ci-pigna.ii. i ne agents, neipea ny me
local notables, are criminal as well as civil
Judges, but even If there were a policeman
in the country he would be unable to find
a prison door that locked. Each parish la
governed by two consuls and a council
elected only by the married heads of households.
For petty local work the parish ia
usually divided Into quartlera and the administrative
body then consists of a meeting
of all the heads of households resident
in the quartier. The revenue Is derived
mainly from taxes on corn and cattle, the
large number of the latter providing by
far the greater part of the money. The
Andorrans have neither coinage nor postage
stamps, but French and Spanish money
and stamps are equally current, Spanish

and feasting done, the sleeping rooms above
receive their guests. Up to a few years
ago Span'sh Influence was very strong until
In an evil moment the then bishop of Urgel
was induced to give his countenance to a
group of financiers who sought to establish
a kind of hydropathic casino near the
capital. Getting wind of the attempt, the
Andorrans rose as one man and amid great
excitement forthwith hunted the would-be
concessionaires out of the country. Suspicion
once aroused, It wns for some time
very difficult for foreigners to enter Andorra,
but that Is all over now. French Influence
has steadily progressed, though thus*
who are supposed to know roundly assert

Precautions Taken to Prevent Spooks
From Running Down Hill.
From the New York Son.
In this age of spooks and disembodied In
fiuences that swirl and gibber about the
heads of unseeing mortals In flocks Instructive
light upon the care and culture
of spirits may be gained from the Koreans.
These people dam up the walls of their
tombs so that the spirits of the dead may
not run down hill and thus become a terrible
menace to the living.
A Korean chooses always for the site of
a tomb some steep hillside, h gh above the
floor of the valley, that the imps of darkness
coming up through the middle of the
e&rth may have a hard dumb uphill after
they have emerged from the ground before
they reach the burial place of the deceased.
The tomb closely resembles a saucer with
IU? uivcuru ttliu OW. UUWH III 1 LB inIUdie.
The edges of the saucerlike dike about
the central circular mound are raised sometimes
to the height of four or five feet
and carefully turfed so as to resist the
washing effect of the wnnter rains. Thus
the spirit of the deceased, burled deep under
the central mound. Is effectually dammed
In and mewed up by the encircling
wall of earth.
If by chance during flood time the retaining
wall of the tomb should give way
and be carried down hill the faithful Korean
son or brother of the deceased hurries
oat with h i wooden spade and rebuilds
the dam as speedily as possible. He
fears leit the restless spirit within the
tomb should be washed down hill with the
earth and then the lives of all the living
kin would be forever blighted. For nothing
is so horrible in Korea as a sp rit that
has escaped Its tomb and wanders In vengeful
mood about the habitations of the living.
Fish by the Million.

The results of the New England fisheries
In 1906 broke all records. Maine contrib
uted to the food supply of the world 1.000,000,000
packed sardines, valued at $5,000,000,
and in fresh flsh alone Boston sold
*4.000,00 worth.
The great "T wharf' In Boston handled

valued at $3,750,000, and handled fresh flsh
to the value of 12,000.000.
T" letter nart of 1905 a revolution was
promised In Ashing methods by the addition
Oi a new steam trawler to the fleet. '
Since fishing began on the Banks the work
has been done by sailng vessels, which
send out dories on the fishing grounds and
rhlrh In their vovaKes back and forth
between Boston and the Banks, are at the
mercy of storms.
There are now more than 500 vessels of
ill sizes in the fishing fleet, ranging In
value from $1,000 to $15,000, the entire
Beet being valued at about $3,000,000. If
the Spray, the new steel trawler, does the
work expected of her It may mean the
passing of the old-time sailing fleet.
The new steamer cost her owners $<*>.100.
She Is equipped to permit of all fishing
operations being carried on from her
leek without the use of dories and the consequent
loss of life attendant upon the old
methods of fishing when boats were frejuently
lost In the fog or run down by Atantlc
steamers. The Spray drags her own
Lrawl nets and is expected to make huge
tiauls and fast time between the fishing
{rounds and the bom* port.
