"The Whole Meaning of Nationality." Tiit- foreign press luis taken up the question <>f amentlins* our Constitution, and some of its strongest representatives favor the proposition of calling a convention for that purpose. Hear the Lond'.n Spectator: It was framed to provide safeguards ar.tlnst dangers which long since disap1" ared. and to encourage certain forces -which today are more in need of control. I'li? states are given wine amonomj, Hi - nation is checked on evers' hand by Till :.i vires provisions. This was well rnuush so Ions as the states were little ?'<>untries t?y themselves, cut off by economic and social gulfs from each otiier. But now that there are common problems and common perils throughout the whole Union, to arm localities with obstructive powers is to play into the hands of reaction and dishonesty and to make any continuous national policy impossible. Tiie people in America have scarcely as yet grasped the whole meaning of nationality The spirit wakes in them with magnificent fire and energy at a crisis, but they go back to their daily work and forget about it." "Have scarcely as yet grasped the whole ining of nationality"? Why, the comprint in certain quarters over here is thai wo have erasned that meaning so firmly, our hold upon everything else has 'Ix'en loosened. The m.in?not always with thf> clearest idea of what he is talking about?who claims to be "an old-fashioned JefTcisnnlan democrat" will tell you that within the past half century the country lias been torn from Its original moorings, and is now headed under the guiding hand of nationalism for the port of absolutism. Unless the course is changed he spt-s nothing ahead but the complete per V ' - "I 01 all llie ^/ui j'uais l\ji n iiii.il uic fathers wrought. He and tlie Spectator are both wrong. A\ are not the hardened nationalists that pictures, nor the novice In the exercise of naNonality that the other pictures. \\"e have been familiar with the meaning of nationality for a great many years; and what so alarms "an old-fashI.?r>... 1 I, fl'crcAnton *" ia a ttor not of yesterday, but of slow and gradual growth. It is often charged that the rivil war deatrnycd state rights. As a muter of fact but one right claimed by som. of the states destroyed by that struggle, and that w,.<? tiie right to secede from the Union. That died the death, and no state will ever ig.iin assert it. Those that did assert it. and lost, could not be brought to do so now. So that whit we then put under our feet was something we could well afford to pirt with. If the Mate rights men were not In such sore straits for a political issue, and therefore ha?ty in th>-lr JurtgmPWfs, they would recognize in Mr. Root their best friend. So far from maki'ig an assault on state lights and proposing their complete obMter.itiun. he has called upon the states to give h better account of themselves; to exere .-? the rights they undoubtedly possess, aiid not permit their citizens to run to Confess for every remedy they need. That is tre i>r-l novice possioie in me premises. A constitutional convention would clear up a Rieat many matters without imperiling in the slightest the noble instrument under which we have for so long been opp' iiinic Why not call one? The Next Day. The day after Christmas finds most of us in a s ate of reaction after the high tension milch ha? carried us through the weeks of preparation and the day of real zatIon. It is hard to get back into harness and to take the road again. But the work awaits and it must be done, and ours nre the opportunities to do it. In fact, the tasks of 11 fo ought to be easier for the stimulus of Christmas. The moral influence? of the day should remain. Otheriri?i' the celebration of Christmas loses most of its value. No man can discharge his obligations merely by giving a few presents. He has bought no immunity from the consequences of his mistakes past or future, by thus olis. rving the mere external features of the I'hristmas institution. The true Christmas spirit should flnd hnlgment in every ( re ist on Christmas morning and remain there, potent and unwavering, for three tiiiiidiiii and sixty-five days. It should w.irk the ends of charity, love, forgiveness im.i miseltishness unlntermittently. It is easy to be genial and cinsiJerate ami iielpful and patient on Christmas day. iih I'verj'iinuy is nappy ana me very atin is|rtu-r? is inspirational of altruism. But It is harder to keep up the pace In the weeks to come, when the annoyances of dally life ra?p on the nerves and temptation* present themselves. 1..en is when the * rue Christmas spirit should manifest itself. The man who makes every day of \'-ar a Christmas, not In giving presents hut in spreading good cheer and doing good deede, is playing his part In the m Sieme of things to the best end. To him t'irk Is a pleasure, a chance, and not a task ir a burden. Association with such ii 111,< it is ? benefit and an Inspiration. S-ii-iior Tillman, with all his rugged imj alvt>n< ss, nuist be credited with being one uf the in oft consistent performers in the political arena.

This Is the latest from Bakersfield, California : llickc. tite rescued miner, spent a restful night. and tliis morning received the attentions of a barber. He. lost only half a pound dm inn bin long contltiement underground. Pit.

H- vcral messages offered him $1,000 a week tn .ippe.tr with a vaudeville team." If this man's affairs are properly manage.! his fortune is made. He is of good, rough stuff, and curiosity about him?which If . i fully nourished by press agents will lust a season or two?should capitalize Wlille I! does last at a large figure. He should steer clear of trade. The life of s <1 ummer is exciting, ant) that of a station.?r> salesman pleasant, but salaries in those fields do not comnare wifh those in the tlehl of amusement. Although III-. laborers in the latter vineyard are numerous, the pay is Renerous and often large. If Mr. Hicks decides for the stage he should order a drama written around hin thrilling imprisonment in that coal mine. We have the tank drama, the barnyard drama, the stage coach drama, and why not the coal mine drama? He is not. it is true, 'an actor, but that need not matter. He would not be required to bend to the stage. but the stage could be made to bend to him. Redshirted and sufficiently begrimed, he would look every inch a miner; and looking a part these days is about all there is to the average performance. Vaudeville would be still easier. >Ir. Hioks sings, and while a prisoner warbled "My Old Kentucky Home" to keep up his spirits. He might repeat that performance on the stage, and the chances are that his w.inhle wnnM roinnare favorably with others heard thert;, although it might not develop into a top-liner. But the stage does not limit Mr. Hicks' opportunity In the amusement field. What is the matter with the Chautauqua circuit? Why not a "lecture," describing the life of a coal miner, the equipment of coal mines, with a few thumps of the owners thrown In to give spice and good measure to an otherwise "bald and unconvincing narrative"? The "lecture" has almost supi rseded the play as the thing. Real thrills are now in the monologue, and not in dia -logue or dramatic situation.- Consult tne list of Chautauqua "attractions," and see how well Mr. Hicks, although new to fame, would compare with many who are'touring the country raking in money and covering large audiences with gooseflesh. It is an enterprising and ardent age, and the performers, from top to bottom, are many of them wonders. Tlie Coming German Elections. This is cabled from Berlin: "The government has issued an urgent appeal to the large number of indifferent electors who abstained from voting in the reichstag elections of to wake up. inasmuch as their participation In the elections is necessary to inKnro tlio r?ckw roiolietacr hpinp- tllSR the old. It is asserted that the indifferent electors, exceed 3,000,000, wh cli-is a quarter of the entire electorate a.id more than the entire social democratic vote." And so there are "off years" also in Germany. We have them in Amer'ca, and they are both mortifying and embarrassing. Many men seem to feel that they discharge their full duty as voters, if they go to the polls in presidential contests and record themselves then. At other times, although the stake, city or state, may be of great importance, they, either go hunting or fishing, or excuse ?i 1 ik. I ill*IIlsci\ trs Uii mo istui c" wt isi | vate business. Once in four years is enough for them. And yet these men are the loudest in complaint when public affairs so wrong or are neglected. Their denunciation of men who make a trade of politics, and largely for their own personal benefit ? who, in the Crokerian phrase, work for their own pockets all the time?is severe to the limits of the languaee. They appear utterly blind to the fact that they themselves are the very hope and stay of the machine bosses, who reckon upon their indifference to their duties as citizens and profit by it. This German appeal ought to win. It is no time for a third, or even a thirtieth, of the electorate to stay at home. The stake is large, and both sides should be up and doing. If a man is with the kaiser he should give the kaiser his support; if not, he should register against the kaiser's policy. The issue is not only important but very plain, and should be decided one way or the other by a pronounced majority. We are told that if the new reiclistag should be unfriendly to the kaiser's African policy he will dismiss it as he did the other, and ap peal again to the country. That is by no means a certainty. If Germany next month declares with emphasis against the emperor he may find it advisable to negotiate for a compromise. Let us not forget that while so many of our people neglect their ballots, and a full third of the German electorate must be poked up with a sharp stick at so great a crisis as now approaches in the affairs of that country, In Russia men and women are struggling?some of them with the weapons of furies?to secure opportunity there for an expression of the public opinion by means of the ballot. What in one place is neglected, or, when used, often used in a careless spirit, in another place is being -? ?% ?.!.?? 5 T-O InA li n M 1if? da a 1115'ivi it luiuv i<.an uit itself. "Jeff" Davis. The country is relieved. "Jelt" in the name of the new senator from Arkansas is not an abbreviation of Jefferson, but of Jeffries. That is better. Considerable dignity and ability go with the memory of Jefferson Davis. He was an aegressive man, but not a "scrapper." As a senator lie nlaved his Dart boldly, and the Senate never dozed while he was on his feet. But he never "shot it up," so to speak, or even threatened to do so, with his mouth. With the name Jeffries at this time, on the other hand, is associated slugging and scrapping of the liveliest character. He is the American champion in that line, and any other man bearing the name is entitled to share in its glories. It is allowable therefore and not inappropriate for the new man from A rl/onuua f a m ynifi-ut utwl tho family spirit, and warn the Senate to prepare for his appearance there. A real old-fashioned Texan would find it hard to understand how the mere shooting up of a town could create such a national disturbance. A niunuer oi congressmen wouiu liKe to see the Pn-sident turn over several new leaves on the first of January.

Washington is becoming almost oppressive. Avoidable Epidemics. Scranton, Pa., is suffering from an epidemic outbreak of typhoid fever. Yesterday forty-one new cases were reported, making a total of 5S2. No diminution of prevalence is yet noted and It is certain that before the disease runs its course or is checked by the discovery and cure of the cause hundreds more will be attacked and probably many scores of lives will be lost. Typhoid is today almost a national | aiuuifi*:. laiuuj u W) Ct:u6Ul?t.-U as U prevenrtlble disease and as such its outbreaks are considered by sanitarians as indicating that the laws of health, decency and common prudence have been violated. Our city growth has outstripped our equipment. For many years only slight attention was paid to the sources of the water supplied to millions of people. It is only with a few years that sanitation has gained such a plane of scientific precision that communities are regarded as patients. A city ti'at suffers from typhoid fever is a sick city, an invalid. The 5S2 cases now recorded in Scranton are so many corroborative symptoms that something is radically wrong with the municipal constitution. Washington is also a sick city today, i veil though the typhoid prevalence is less marked than in the summer and autumn. The disease is here and cmuicnt phjsic.ans are trying 3 to And out where It Ues and how to cure it. The city awaits their re-, port with the keenest interest. Upon Its terms will rtst Important matters. It is absolutely -certain that if these Investigators are able by deductive or eliminutory processes to put their finger on a provable cause of the disease prevalence every possible effort will be made, at whatever expense. to effect a cure. If the founders of out cities knew as much about sanitation as is known now by even the average unscientific citizen there would doubtless today lie fewer sick communities, and human life in the centers of population would be far safer. Now that light lias been shed upon the heretofore mysterious causes and sources of epidemic diseases there is no excuse imaginable for the municipality to continue to suffer its people to sicken by hundreds and to die by scores.

At the request of several friends and neighbors I have decided to resume my labors As a poetess; for the reason That it is now the regular poetry season, And having done up the peach preserves smd all The other duties that pertain to fall, With heart so light and free from care I will write one mere pome, entitled "DO NOT DESPAIR." Do not despair, but joyous and gay, I^et us be happy all the day. What though clouds gather around the Panama canal? It shall be due. It shall! Tt shall! And what though the land resound with whoops About the discharge 6f colored troops? Shall we be disconsolate because of their distress? I should say not. We imve troubles of our own, I guess. What though we find it hard to please A great many people, for instance, the Japanese? Let us not allow it to worry us, Nor lose our tempers should they try to hurry us. And what though the nation in its pride Should feel It incumbent upon it to discuss sucn tungs as race suicide? It Is a topic of importance more or less, But perhaps not one for a poetess. And what though the institution known as spelling reform Did not take the public by storm? Sooner or later spelling reform will arrive, so do not be glum, I ar.d other literary folks are still willing to help some. And what though diplomats come and quote Letters which perhaps ought not to have been wrote? I have wrote letters whieh T n ro. gretted, myself. Although that was when I was an unsophisticated little elf. And "what though" numerous other things? Do not despair, for the New Year brings A chance to turn over a brand-new leaf; So what is the use of giving way to grief? Look up, sad heart, and do not repine. For life cannot always be sunshine. Sometimes weather is good and sometimes it will drizzle; Sometimes dreams come true, but most of them fizzle. Advertising. From Wall Street Summary. Advertising is not an exact science and probably never will become such. In thi? Held is the empiricist in his Glory, and interesting beyond expression are his efforts at times. The whole problepi is one of psychology: To attract attention, to arouse curiosity, to beget a need, and, finally, to make a sale. It bears the same relation to business as coal to an engine; it is the fuel of commerce and gives it both steam and driving power. Returns from its employment are not easily ascertainable. But it is generally conceded that economy in advertising is poor economy, and large stores, in the recession of their business, realize this when they decrease their advertising appropriations. Those who live by means of advertising will live as long as they advertise; those who cease will die.

No section of the country has more interesting problems to solve than those that today confront the new south; and the schools for negroes, with Tuskegee as the leading exponent of their methods and results, are a more potent factor in the finding of x than is commonly realized. They are not fighting as those that beat the air, but are making every blow tell. Wait for Sporting Edition. From the Kansas City Journal. An enterprising publisher is figuring on producing a popular edition of the Congressional Record. Better wait until JefC Davis and Vardaman got to the Senate and bring out a sporting edition.
