In discussing the war question the Paris Temps has ihis lo say: "Spain has to choose between an ar? rangement with hard conditions at? tached and absolute bankruptcy. More? over, it depends upon her to avert by opportune action grave International complications, by which she will earn the gratitude of the civilized world." Exactly; Spain must either consent to accept what the Spaniards will call hard terms or else suffer annihilation. It took the United States two years to get started, but now that she has un deraken the job it is safe to say that there will be no let up until Spain goes down on its marrow bones and sues for peace. Naturally the only terms upon which the American gov? ernment can agree to peace will seem almost insufferable to Spain, but tlie Dons should remember that they brought the trouble upon themselves in the face of repeated warnings and in spite of friendly advice of nearly every important power in Europe. Of course, this is poor consolation, but ft is difficult to understand what can be 'gained by further postponement of peace negotiations. Every day the wai? ls continued will increase the expense of the war to the United States, a ma? terial- point that will be considered when the question of indemnity is raised, and the resources of Spain aro decreased. Every sentiment of com? mon sense and patriotism should dic? tate peace on any terms that can be. secured. We have no doubt that the American government is ready lo end the war on a fair basis at any time, but the longer hostilitcs continue the greater must be its demand for recompense when tin: settlement; finally comes. Courage and devotion in defending a cause is commendable, but inability to realize when one is soundly thrashed is otic of tile earmarks of a fool. One important lesson of tin- war ?with Spain is that properly construct? ed land batteries have little difficulty in holding their own against naval ves? sels. In spile of ib.- terrible pounding Of the thirteen and eight inch shells and the bothersome cough of tin- dy? namite cruiser Vesuvius, we are told that the strategists believe it would be dangerous to try to pass tie- batteries at the entrance of Santiago de Cuba. If this means anything it means that ? no matter how excellent warships may be they cannot hope to cope with land fortifications m their own special sphere. It stands to reason, therefore, that Instead of spending all of his mon? ey in warships Uncle Sam should place some of it in thick emplacements und modern disappearing guns. Possibly til.- Americans haven't Very much "honor," hut they have lots of gold and they are noi afraid to risk it oh the honesty and integrity of their movement, either. For moral note . tlie difference between the reception of Uncle Sam's popular loan and tin- one ; that Alphonso's ministers tried to ne ? gotiate. That Spanish General who wished with so much fervor that "Spain did j not have a naval vessel," is probably . the only Spaniard who is extracting Very much comfort out of the situation.

J.I I ( l ; j ? va Hot Time . in the Old Town is one way of expressing a sense ol merriment, but the hot time some house keepers have in sweltering over hot ranges with unsatisfactory fires, with wood, coal, ashes, dirt and annoyance, is it any wonder they look weary and broken down ? But with a modern gas range all this trouble disappears. The range will cook anything^it will do it quickly, it will do its work bet? ter and more satisfactory than any coal range ever made. It will heat water for the bath or any purpose, and what is more the gas range is the most econ? omical cooker on the market. Gas at $l.ou per thousand feet is ten cents a hundred. An atver age family can cook three meals daily with less than 100 feet of gas. Ask those using gas and you will see. Those who have just found out the benefits are most enthusiastic. We have known it so long we wonder why every body don't see it as we do, but they will soon see it. We are seating ranges every day, and every range set brings along another sounder of its praises.
