In speaking of the probable position ?>f the South in the event of host?ll?tlies between the Uinliitwd 'States and Sptilin t'he ?ost.Vm.-d Washinigtotn Post says: "Wlhille ifhe're is in? portion of our peo? ple who aire more desirous of the con Itiiniuaniee of peace than the southern contingent, it is equally true that none S!s more ready to respond Ito a. call to arms if peace and honor cannot be kept together. And the south, the people of the southern Atlantic and gwif stlaitee; (have had severer lessons In the hbnrore and tiie losses incident to won- than their fellow citizens of other sections. They know off u verity that Yivsur is heUil." " The South httt* 'had costly experienioe In aiH the great wars that heve uaikein place since colonial days, and the re&ld iness with which its loyal sons stand Wo repel the a-ggresslionis of ahy ffoe .Uhutt assails the honor and lii'legnity off the grieat American Republic, is simply in Jvcep.intg with 'the exalmp'le seit by the giltmiotis sires ?f t'he Southrons wlw are mow upon tiie snage of action. No sen? sible Southerner wants war simply for Itlhe s?he off lighting, but with their o'ld Itliime airldor asvd' elu'vallry they stand ready to fight fur their country ?hould the nt-cei-sity arise. rrbe following paiugrapb from the 'Montreal 'Hemid shows what a strong hold the merit system has upon' our Crfenda across the Canadian border: "The spoils system trust be avoided at all hiazards. It has been the cunse of untold' injury t.< til,- public service and to the private as well as to the public morals of the people of the United All the military authorities ofEuorpe are now paying great attention to sing? ing on the march. The French array has of late permitted its soldiers to sing while marching. A little book or soldiers' marching songs was publish? ed In London, with Gen. Wolseley's words printed big on the cover to the effect that men march better and ar? rive fresher when they sing than when they don't. Curiously enough, most of these songs are American, '.voids and all. _ Kind of 1'lfM' (o Smoke. A soft clay pipe is the best. It gives a coo! smoke, and the nicotine is easily and generally absorbed. lirlar pipes and meerschaums are satisfactory for a while, but get clogged with tobacco oils in the bowl and become bitter. A hooked pipe?one with a curved stem? is the best shape. Ebonite stems spoil , the flavor of good tobacco. Nothing is better than real amber or bone. Cellu? loid is dangerous.
