Saturday's Democratic mass meeting in the Col iseum gave accent to' the unquestioned fact that the party In St Louis is wholly In sympathy with the exponents of reform and good government. This demonstration by the mass of the party, coming fast upon the victory of the party leaders in convention over the corrupt element, impresses upon con scientious voters that their affection must rest with the organization which openly ratifies betterment. So dbubt can prevail about the.attitude of the St Louis Democrats under Folk and Wells. The party's officials, the men who have guided the revolution for purity in public office,, are united to carry for ward the work and to perpetuate good government The party's leaders are giving the reform officials earnest support. The mass of tho party is heartily loyal in sanctioning what has been done for the good of the city and the community and in aiding with enthusiasm and votes the plans for expanding reform. The local situation is exceptionally plain, and no conscientious citizen can have any scruple whatever as to bow, he should vote. Reform is the only issue. Therefore, the duty of every citizen Is, vote so that reform will proceed, spread and last Party consid erations are entirely out of the question in a cam paign of this .Importance nnd far-reaching signifi cance. The call this year is upon the civic con science, and any citizen, whatever his party affilia tions or personal feelings may be, who would think of party or self In registering his vote would be guilty of a disregard of his duty toward the ma jority and -the public corporation. Since municipal reform Is the Issue, since it is the only home Issue, the demand of the time Is the elec tion of men who are absolutely trustworthy. The revolution of betterment will not as everybody un derstands, be fostered by men who do not hold the confidence of the people. But it is certain that re form will be expanded and perpetuated by officials who have honestly earned reputation as exponents of reform. Citizens have to look to nominees of .knowp. Integrity, ability and .courage. Speaking, not from a partisan, but from a broad civic standpoint, it must be said that the Demo cratic tickets are entitled to. recognition from all voters. This Is so for several reasons: First the Democratic tickets are composed of men who al ready have demonstrated their sincerity for reform, and of men whose private records are guarantees of faithful service; second, the party leaders, In de feating the corrupt element, and In approving the reform policy, have made the parry a patriotic or ganization, which, though a political party, Is better than a party; third, the party leaders are vigorously supporting the exponents of reform; fourth, the mass of the party Is loyal to the reform policy. On the other hand, the opposing tickets stand for the antagonistic 'elements.' They comprise henchmen of the corrupt element; they are dominated 'by that element, and the campaign isagainst the reform which the Democratic party represents. Citizens ought to take all these points into, con sideration right now, a week before the election, and make up their minds at oneejibout-thelr duty. It is necessary for good government that the reform party should gain an overwhelming victory next week. Such a victory will mark the annihilation of the gang, and It will assure the extension of reform and the perpetuation of reform in good government THE FAIR AS AN EDUCATOR. In showing that advancement and. prosperity are universal the St Louis Exposition exercises a po tent Influence In disseminating the doctrines of tol erance among nations and races: It need' not be surprising If the nations, through a, newly gotten .capacity of admiring one another's excellences and doing justice to one another's motives, should culti vate a friendlier spirit From the exhibits we of Ibis country may gain In llberallty; of. view and fairness. of judgment. All of the prizes are not- awarded here. Very many grand prizes, gold medals and lesser awards are won by foreign Governments and exhibitors. France, Germany, Japan, Great Britain, Mexico, Brazil. Slam and other countries come In for an Important share of slgnlflcanthonors. The prizes'taketf by Germany, France, Japan and Great Britain suggest wholesome thought, looking Impartially at the verdicts, as to how further progress in America will be encouraged. The percentage of prizes taken by several of the chief foreign nations Is also an Indication of the su perior merit of the Exposition In an International way. The exhibits' of France, Germany, Japan' and' Great Britain must be particularly comprehensive and qualitative if they are worthy of hundreds of high awards. TTnwlse absentee Americans must now sec that the foreign displays are of such a. kind as to be In structive and therefore beneficial to this country. Such an array of the best articles and treasures from abroad, may not be assembled again, as circum stances probably will be unpropitions, and for this reason It Is a matter of personal. concern with every one who would understand modern civilization that he should Investigate the foreign exhibits, though he should see nothing else. The time for taking advantage of these rare edu catlonal advantages Is becoming very short On tho night of November 80 the Exposition will close. Aft er that date the displays will be packed and shipped back across the oceanB, and the spectacle will dis appear. It is urged, with the best of motives, that the attendance be large In the next few weeks. It is more likely hat too little would bo said In appreciation of the foreign participation than too much. There are at least three Governments which have remarkably complete and meritorious displays. as" may be Inferred from the awards. That these displays will produce many benefits In this country there Is no doubt; nor that the American displays will produce benefite abroad. It Is certain, too, that, besides the material benefits, there will be larger benefits In which the whole race will share. The good would be sufficient If It were confined to only, a broadening of view among nations. . A RELIABLE FUND. The hazard which always attends members of the PolIce.Department In the discharge of duty is shown to the people in several Incidents of recent occur rence. Incidents making It dramatically plain that the public, In enjoying protection, la obligated In conscience -to make provision against contingencies which beset these men; Thus far the public has not signified In a material way that It adequately real izes the policeman's constant danger, or, that it fully considers the hardships, which families endure, as a consequence of personal Injuries sustained by their husbands and fathers in preserving order. The compensation received by- patrolmen and de tectives.ls.nAt relatively large, as a comparison with salary schedules in trades and professions discloses; it ;, in ract,.jast an average, compensation. does not enable an officer to save enough in the few years of usefulness to, offset demands of neces-. sity which result from death or Injury In the per formance of duty. No "deeper or more heart-touching argument for adoption of Constitutional Amendment No. 1 could be given than the killing of three detectives by a gang of train-robber suspects less than a fortnight ago. The detectives were acting for the people. In entering the Pine street house, they resolved to cap ture lawbreakers, who bad taken life and property; they resolved to protect the lives and property of the people of St. Louis. The detectives killed the suspects, but they lost their own lives. Can any citizen ,convince himself that the salaries paid to these destectives were In any sense equivalent to their hazard, or a recompense to their families? This, however, is not the only Incident of late which shows the danger facing members of the de partment A detective and a special detective Crcmin and Kinan, who had been awarded medals of merit saved the lives of five persons in a down town hotel fire. Other acts might be mentioned, but these few bring out clearly enough not only the courage and fidelity of policemen and detectives, but the danger which always confronts them. Constitutional Amendment No. 1 should bo ap proved unanimously by the voters. It would au thorize the General Assembly of the State to enact a law permitting the city of St. Louis to pension dis abled, crippled and superannuated members of the Police Department and to pension the widows and children of deceased members. This Is not only a fair, but a just provision. As a matter of fact, most American cities have been slow in doing justice to municipal employes whose work is dangerous. In the large cities of Missouri the members of the Fire Department are eligible to pension, but the members of the Police departments are neglected, and it is hard to say in which service the danger is greater year in and year out The public really Is obligated in conscience to ar range for the pensioning of these men. This obli gation is emphasized xery clearly in the incidents of the past few weeks. It is urged, therefore, that every citizen vote "yes" to Constitutional Amend ment No. 1'. A Filipino student at New Hnven, Conn., at tempted to qualify for the election. He ascertained. through Washington, that, while he belongs to the United States, he is not eligible to citizenship. This interpretation of the Supreme Court's decision does not illuminate the Declaration of Independence, but it does establish the proprietorship over the Fili pinos. Haven't most of ns a vague recollection about some peace congresses only a few weeks ago? It docs seem that action had been taken for universal peace. But, unfortunately, there was no thought of Rojestvensk'y. - This year there should be pnblic Thanksgiving Day exercises at the World's Fair. On this occa sion It would be very edifying to exhibit the few local kickers and slanderers. --. -1 INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS WILL ONE DAY SETTLE THE WORLD'S DISPUTES By LIEUTENANT GENERAL NELSON A. MILES Human progress, like tha movement of the mighty glacier. Is Imperceptible, yet its advance Is Incessant and Irresistible. It la like the morning light shrouded b' tho gloom and shadows of darkness, that breakB forth to diamine the world Tb" germs of benevolence become ben-if-jc-tlons: seech sown on good ground produce the golden harvest. In a just cause principles are far more Important and potential than mere num bers. Hence, the humane and. exalted Ideas of those true men have spreod over the world and found congenial thought and sympathy In the breasts and minds of tho beat people of every nation. The history of the nations has been largely tho h!story: of their wars. The brave, tho true, the valiant have been Justly honored, and revered In all lands and In all times. Fame has crowned with imperishable glory heroic deeds and noble sacrifice. The settlement of International contro versies by the dread arbitrament of war Involves the destruction of tens of thou sands, and sometimes hundreds of thou sands of tho young men of both countries Could any rule, coda or method bo more void of reason and Justice? Tet such has been tho history of tho race since the earliest. ages. and. in modern wars the evi dences of barbarism are still apparent. To Illustrate what has been the sacrifice to tho demon of carnage. It Is estimated that the wars to gratify the ambition of Bonaparte cost Europe 3,00O.CM lives and) the devastation of many countries. In our great Civil War more tlian a mll Uon five hundred thousand young men en listed beforei thev were 21 years of age. many leaving home for the first time, never to return. More than half a million of the very flower of America's young manhood went to untimely graves In that horrible conflict that was a loss to the nation that never can be regained. We may well ask what would have been the condition of the human family to-day If the bravest and best, the noblest and most unselfish, could have lived rather than have been sacrificed upon the red fields of war of every country and In every ose. To drift from a strong race Into a nation of noncomoatants would undoubtedly be a misfortune to the people, a. detriment t' the;.Government and disastrous to our be loved country. Fortunately, there Is a wiser ana better course. There Is one more upward step before we reach tbe high plane of human development We need not follow the example of those na tions who have drifted Into decay and sub servlency to the strong and powerful, neither need wo follow the example of the cruel and oppressive nations that have, by tho force of their mighty armies and pow erful navies, overcome- weaker and more peaceful countries. The great majority of wars of the world's history 'have been occasioned by he selfish ambition of some usurper or cruel tyrant the intrigue of unscrupulous men, or tho avarice and greed of a peo ple. The deadly war now -being" waged be tween two powerful nations In the Orient cannot benefit cither country, but must Impoverish both for the next hundred years. It will not benefit mankind, but must retard human progress. In a conversation seven years ago with Emperor Nicholas II. autocrat of all the Russlas. I found him deeply Interested In the construction of that great Transl bcrlan Railway, that "new way around the old world." He had been over the zone himself before he was Emperor, and was ambitious to open that great avenco of commerce and communication to promote the settlement of that vast area of Rus sian territory. He was more Interested In thecltll development-of that country than In the condition of his Imperial army. It will ever be the glory of hU reign that he called The Hague Peace Conference, and advocated wise and humane arbitration in order to lessen the burdens of the people who are sustaining great standing armies. It is to be regretted that tho representa tives of those countries that hadformerly talked most about arbitration at The Hague Convention did not manifest th greatest zeal In tho cause of universal peace. I have no sympathy for that sentiment if peace that would compromise and arbl rate with powerful nations and at th tame time overrun. Intimidate, subjugatsj ir oppress the people of defenseless coun tries. Never In the world's history-were there is many men drilled, trained and dis ciplined for war purposes as at the pres :nt time. Never was the expense of ar mament, equipment and supplying- of troops with modem destructive engines of war as severely expensive as now. and never were the burdens of maintaining the sreat armies and navies as heavy upon the people as at the present time. When the ingenuity and skill of mankind have brought the nations or tho earth lsta close communication, when steam power, electricity and. wireless telegraphy have brought the people of even" country Into at least one grand brotherhood of com mon interests, when distance and time have been annihilated, the peace, pros perity and future welfare of every nation indicate and demand that the burden oS maintaining a naUonal force shall be re duced to the minimum and that there shall bo one grand congress for ths ad judication and settlement of International controversies and in promoting the true grandeur of nations. Ueveral years ago. when our army was below tho standard of safety and efficien cy, and later, when we had a superabund ance of military force, I had the honor to recommend that the Government adopt a standard for-tho military force of tEe na tion that should be commensurate with our population, wealth and national re quirements. The system Is simple and.r fectly feasible, has since been practically adopted by our Government, and we shall have the glory of setting a good example and commending it to the people of every nation.

Caspar Whitney hi November Outing. The disturbing element In hunting, elephant or sela dang or rhino, has. been always, to-me at-least, the feel ing of uncertainty as to whether or no I could stop the animal if I wounded it and it charged me, as It did on an average of once In three times. Based on my experi ence, therefore, I' should place the elephant first and tho rhino third after the seladang, which Is fully as formidable as tho cape buffalo, and Is miscalled the biso.-i all over India. Each of these animals Is danger ous on different and individual grounds; the elephant, though less likely to charge than any of the others. Is terrifying because of his enormous strength, which stops at no obstacle, and the extreme difficulty of reaching a vital spot, especially If, w.ith trunk tightly colled, ho Is,comlngyour way. I know of no sensation more awe some than standing ankle deep In clinging mud. In dense cover, with the Jungle crashing around you as though the entire forest were toppling, as tho elephant you have wounded comes smashing his way In your direction. The seladang Is dangerous, partly because of the thick Jungle he weeks when wounded, but more especially be cause of his tremendous vitality and his usual, though not Invariable, habit of awaiting the hunter on his -tracks and charging suddenly, swiftly and viciously. It requires close and .hard shooting to bring down one of these" 6-foot; specimens of Oriental cattle. The danger of the tiger and of the lion Is In their lightning activity and ferocious strength; but you have the shoulder. In addition to the head shot. If broadside; or. If coming on, the chest, all sure to stop If well placed. The rea son the rhino Is fco formidable is because its vulnerable spots ore so bard to reach. Its brain Is as small In pro portion as that of the elephant, and may be reached through the eye if head on. or about three 'Inches below and Just In -front or.

Ho caught her In his arms. "My ownl" he whispered. "My own for . . ." In an earlier day ho would have said "eternity," bnt they were, living In- tho tune foretold by Jlr. George Meredith, when marriages were contracted, for certain limited periods. Thus he hesitated. "Ten years," the beautiful girt supplied tentatively. Still he hesitated. "I do not doubt myself," he said, and almost believed his own words; "I do not doubt myself; within your arms ten, twenty' years, " eternity, would glide swiftly, ah I too swiftly, away. But do you, Clarissa, can you be sure of yourself?" "For ten years yes." He urged for. a shorter term flvo years. "Tis brief." she said. "A woman's love," he rejoined. "Consider, dearest; the divorce courts have' been abolished, and a contract Is a contract, not to be broken by a flight to South Dakota." She bad not thought of that She reflected. He had hope. Then she spoke. "Suppose, Edgar, that we say Ave years, with the privilege of renewalr' He could not well except to that Thus' It was or dered. And they Uved happily .... afterwards. WJUTTEJT FOR THE STCfDAT REFCBLK1 No woman likes to grow old. ' The French belle who. In advancing years, wrote to a friend, "It Is a terrible thing to reach the age when men treat you with nothing but respect" voiced a great truth. She missed the admiration, the gallan tries and the small attentions which make life agreeable. She was not satisfied with being given an easy chair and left alone. She missed, too. the lessened opportuni ties for usefulness which seem to be among the penalties of age for woman. Even In the religious and charltablo do main the woman who appears young has wider Influence than the old lady. Tick ets are purchased and subscriptions given to the solicitor who appeals to the eye sooner than to one who appeals only to the mind and purse. It is only tho woman who has- reached a very high altitude of religious serenity, or exaltation, who can bo satisfied to see the last remnant of her youth depart and be happy. To every woman of sentiment and sensibility that hour la little short of tragls when she first hears the term, "old lady" applied to herself. Slnco this is true. It should be tho aim of every woman to defer that day by every reasonable and scientific process within her" reach. The self-indulgent matron who devours her box of confectionery with relish, and who has, never known the enjoyment ot leaving the table without being wholly sat isfied. Is on the certain road to prema ture old-age; for nothing ages the woman who has passed 30 like on overabundancs of flesh. Besides spoiling her appearance, this self-indulgence weakens her character and renders her less capable of developing the strong traits which are the foundation of all real beauty and attractiveness, after first youth has faded. It Li not unusual to hear a. woman of this type bemoaning the loss of youth. while she sends her plate for extra help ings and empties her glass of on appetite stimulator. Tet If diet Is suggested, she will insist that food has no Influence upon her flesh, and that she Is reaUy delicate In her ap petite. Phlyalcal exercise, practiced automat ically In a mechanical manner, will not give symmetry or health. Unless the 'mind aids the practice. It might as well be abandoned. But diet baths and physical exercises. followed with an Interested and deter mined mind, will enable any woman on earth to retain symmetery of form If she begins In season. Touth and charm do not. however, de pend upon form alone. Complexion, ex pression and manner ore all handmaidens to beauty. In this age a bad complexion Indicates something wrong with a wom an's mind. The determined mind will not submit to the blemish. Good health belongs with respectability. It han been well said that sickness Is con temptible and unnecessary. The animals know enough to omit a meal when they are Indisposed. Few people can be found who do. not urge an Invalid to eat more Instead of less. Bad complexions are the result of wrong diet lack of' fresh air., lack of exercise and lack of deep breath ing: Chuang Tzu, a Chinese philosopher. Uv Ing BOO years before Christ wrote: 'The pure men of old slept without dreams, and waked without anxiety. They ate with discrimination, breathing deep breaths. For pure men draw breath from their ut termost depths, the vulgar only from their throats." I Added to neglect ot physical rules ot good health which must make the-foundation of youth and .beauty, we have only to look about us and find the women who am ageing; through wrong- mental habits. Despondency, worry, nervousness, petu lance, avarice. Jealocey aro all little foxes working away at the root of the tree ot beauty. No woman can entertain disa greeable or unhappy thoughts- year hi and out for even a portion of her days and re main young- or pleasing to the eye. Severe, critical, fault-finding. Intolerant thoughts all sharpen the features and dry tho custlcle and take the luster from the eye. Every emotion and feeling makes Its Impression upon the outer, covering of the Immortal souL An Inactive mind elves a. vacancy to the expression, and a dissatisfied mind plows furrows In tho face. Great sorrows often ennoble the human countenance, but con tinual fretting and fear and anxiety shrivel and dwarf Its beauty. There can be no charm In a mature face which covers a soul devoid of reverence and faith. When the light of youth fades from tho eyes nothing but the light of faith can give them beauty. Maturity and the materialistic mind pro duce premature and uninteresting old age; Elasticity of mind means elasticity of body. Therefore, let those who would ward off the approach of visible old age take nolo of these rules: Bit sparingly and breathe deeply. Bathe thoroughly. Think- hopefully, talk, kindly and work energetically. Walk prayerfully and live reverently.

Saturday Evening Post In Germany there Is a good deal of grumbling over the fact that the Imperial Government which has never had a real war, has managed to pile up for military and naval armament a debt of $700,000,030. As Edmund Burke said, "The public Is always poor." In Germany the masses aro particularly poor and this Imperial debt plus the enormous state debts, also for wars post and wars anticipated, plus the annual cost of army and navy to the Empire and. Its States, explain why they are so poor. But what would the Germans, think if they knew about us? Isolated though we are, we spend more than Germany or any other state upon our war establishment about J200.000.0QO a year; also, we pay 030.000,000 a year in pensions, and the Interest on our public debt wholly a wise debt ia nearly 30,000.000 a year. Of the HS.000. 000,000 our national administration has spent since it was .set up in 17S9, Just under JU.000,000,000 has gone for war and pensions. : equally good." bury oa 'great problems of the An- slc-Suon world, as expressed la ad dressea before various lay aad re ligious bodies during; his stay 1b this country, and not heretofore printed.

In the presence of all the bigness, the stir, tba swing of the world's life, at such cen tral spots as this, our power of quiet sym pathy or painstaking care for other peo ple's needs and difficulties i for too hard to evoke. We' know so much about what is going on that we care less. 'Nothing happens anywhere but Vome hurried account of it must In an hour or two be spread through out the world. The account may be In accuratehalf .truth, half guessing but go It must or another will go before It These possibilities of .rapid Intercourse and wide communication are, when rightly used, the very 'forces which make it possl- 'ble for us to band ourselves quickly and strenuously together against wrong, to drag evils into daylight so as to fight ;them better, to learn our dangers and to meet' them. Pew of us, perhaps, have the power of any great scale of mending the world's wrongs, but eacn of us, cmy single one, has. the power to make happier, sunnier,' purer, the IltUe spots;' the home, tho office, .. . . .-,. ., -r... tl ia ,ue wonranojw wnerein ius cuuiji na God and good, the better co-operating of our militant activities against whatsoever In our common life is mean, or cowardly, or coarse, or unworthy of Him whose "name we boar. To England and America has In the providence of God been given for years and years, as it seems to me, a trust of a quite peculiar kind. I shall not dwell upon. Its high signifi cance or on the history of Its distinctive growth. But there it is, and we mean, pleaso God, to use it Trie Memniac of Liberty. It has been given to us English-speak- ins folk In the manifold development of our storied Ufa to realize In practice more fully than other men the true meaning of liberty-the Uberty wherewith Christ bath made us free. Let us always recognize that such knowledge Is in Itself not a heritage only, but a splendid and sacred trust The trust must, be determinedly and dally used to the glory of God and the ira measureable good of men. Christ taught us that a man's life con slstetb not In the abundance of things which he possessetb. He taught us that society exists for the sake of the men and the women who constitute society. He taught us that surrender, even of In dividual rights, for the sake of Christ, Is nobler than defense of privilege. We rmut be here to work. Ana men who work can only work for men.

Chivalry Is here to-day. but It has taken, as we believe, another meining than that which It had in .former times. Perhaps that other meaning, if we cou'd get below the surface, had more of a place In those early days than we are apt to remember. And. if wc look at the actual record of what the tuan who was then enUsted as a knight was really obliged to do, the oath ho had to take. the. obligations be had to assume, we find this that his primary and .central obligation was that he bear the arms, the red cross oa the white shield, the sword with the crow at Its. hilt, and ,the crest for the Just and necessary de fense of all that are oppressed and needy. It. gives a different thought, a different tone, to the records of those days, when we come to realize that the underlying- enlisted; that Is not peculiar to the age of feudalism ot to the knights of chivalry. Ancestors no Longer Connt. In this democratic age In which we Ura It Is what a man does that matters rather than what the man's ancestors were. The artificial platform of former days, which might place a duffer on a level with a. man who has great capacity, has gono practically In most parts of the world.
