An English woman when told of the
fleath of a wealthy but uncultured
neighbor, pronounced this unique obit

In twenty-five years the paper pulp
industry of Wisconsin has grown from
nothing to an investment of '$20,000,000,
the present daily output of the mills of
the State being over 2,500,000 pounds,
while the value of the product is now
considerable more than $6,250,000 a year.
New York and Maine are the only States
which now surpass Wisconsin in this
i Industry. .
China is learning what it costs to go
to war and come home licked. Japan
has received from China already the
proceeds of a loan of $30,000,000 raised
in France on a Russian guarantee, and
of a loan of $80,000,000 raised with Ger
man co-operation through the agency
of the Hong-Kong and Shanghai bank.
Both loans were secured By mortgage
ing the tariff revenue, which was last
year $16,375,000. China has yet a large
sum to pay Japan. If she pays in May
next ehe will have but $60,000,000 to
pay, but if she avails herself of her'op.
tlon she may get clear in 1902 by pay.
ing $82,500,000 in installments continued
to that date. Japan will thus have re
ceived for her exertions in the recent
war some $240,000,000 in cash, besides
Formosa and the Chinese navy, which
was worth several millions.

and symbols is promised for the Omaha
exhibition next year. Its preparation
is in the hands of James Mooney, a rep
resentatlve of the Bureau of Ethnology
of the Department of the Interior. Mr.
Mooney is a white man and an adopted
member of the Kiowa-Apache Indians,
with whom he has spent much time,
his tribe membership permitting him to
pursue his investigations without excit
ing the suspicion or distrust of the In.
dians. ,To make the exhibit as realistic
as well as picturesque it has been de
elded to reproduce on a similar scale
the last great cuu: 11 of the amalga
mated tribes of the Klowas and Ap
aches. There will be 250 tepees In the
encampment, and a medicine lodge or
temple. Each topee Is to be marked
with the emblems of the subdivision of
the tribe to which ita occupants belong,
and in front of each tepee will be a pole
from which will be suspended the shield
and other war Implements of the occu
pant, each shield being emblazoned
with the proper heraldic device.
KOOM a i i li i: TOP.
Philadelphia Is a little slow, but it has
made what seems to be a practical plan
to take itself out of the ranks of cities
with the unenviable reputation of not
providing sufficient publlo school ac
commodations. It will do this, too,
without the erection cf new buildings
and without other additional expense.
Indeed, the plan may prove to be an
economical one. Investigation disclos
ed that while many schools were over
crowded, some of them to the extent of
adopting the half-time system, other
schools, often in the immediate vicin
ity, had seats to spare. The rigid dis
tricting lines which brought about this
condition of affairs are to be made
flexible, and with this change it is ex
pected to give each pupil a seat, al
though some of the children may have
to walk a little further to school. This
additional burden,- however, Is to be
placed upon the older children, the pu
pils in the higher grades. There Is al
ways a falling off in attendance as the
higher grades are reached, and it is
found that the highest class of two or
more rooms may be consolidated with
out exceeding the maximum number al
lotted to one teacher. In this consoli
dation comes the economy of the
change, as fewer teachers will be need
ed. The change takes place colncident
ly with the appointment of officers to
enforce the compulsory education law,
the city narrowly escaping the enact
ment of the farce of corralling truants
for whom no school room had been pro
vided. .
Possibly something like this might
work well in some other cities where
there is room at, the top.
There is no rest for the wicked and
there Is just as much for the good. The
good have to keep pegging away in or
der to be good themselves, and do their
part toward making others good. This
being the case it behooves those jvho
call themselves the good in politics to
be everlastingly busy. Some Pennsyl
vania Republican papers having ad
vised that the people be given a rest
from politics for some months before
the next campaign is begun the Phila
delphia Press remarks: The managers,
or leaders, or bosses, or whatever best
designates them, never rest. They are
engaged in politics all the time, and
nothing suits them better than to have
the people take a rest, for it is then
that they get the advantage othe peo
ple. Almost within a few weeks dele
gates to a convention for the nomina
tion of a candidate for governor will
be eleoted. The political managers are
already setting up the delegates, and
candidates are flooding a number of
counties with written appeals. If fit
candidates for the legislature are to be
nominated in the several districts the
people cannot afford to take a rest from
politics. Some of the candidates will
be nominated within the next three
months, and in those districts where
nominations are not actually made
within that time the managers will
have the prospective candidates pretty
well fixed, unless the people have taken
the trouble to arrange for making the
nomination themselves.
True enough. Those who call them
selves the good in politics don't get up
early enough, "stay up late enough, or
work hard enough while they are up.
So those who are called the bad in poli
tics take the cake.
nucKr.uss Chicago.
The trustees of the Chicago public 11
brary have decided to open the doors
of that institution on Sunday, from
twelve to six, for the circulation of
books, as well as for the use of the
reading and reference rooms. Chicago
is a very wicked city, and this new evi
aence or us wiciceaness win sena a
shock through all New -England. But
what better could be expected of Chica
go, with Carter Harrison for mayor,
and Hinkey Dink, Bath House John,
etc., for "city fathers?"
Still, those who live in glass houses
should not throw stones out of them,
and those who have beams in their eyes
should go to an eye doctor. Do our
readers know that right here in pious
Connecticut there is a public library
which is open only on Sunday? There
is, and it is in the good old town of
Ledyard. Moreover the library is sit
uated next to the Congregational
meeting house at "the centre." and
those who go to meeting there take
books out of the library before or af
ter meeting. The excuse given for this
variation from our good old ways is
that circumstances make Sunday the
only day available for the residents of
the surrounding region. They live too
far away, as a rule, to use the library
during the other six day, but on Sun
day they come to church, and what
more natural than that the volumes on
the shelves of the adjacent institution
should be obtainable at that time?
Thus are convenience and economy of
time put before principle.
Ledyard isn't a very, thriving or
growing place, but it probably would
be if it were not so wicked with Its
library. Just look at New Haven,
booming along with its publlo library
carefully and piously shut on Sunday.
If people must read on Sunday let
them read the Sunday newsDaoers or
the pleasing and Instructive books that
are to be found in the Sunday school
libraries, which can, of course, ba
piously and properly opened on Sun
day. It is just as wicked to open a
public library on Sunday as it is to ride
to church on a bicycle.
Marching That Made Work.
When It is planned, as is so fre
quently the case with swell dressmak
ers, to make the skirt and bodice of
a gown match in their trimming, a
very elaborate rig is sure to result if a
start is made with a highly wrought
bodice. Illustrative ot tnls Is the pic
ture put here, which shows a dress
made of grey silk marked with stripes
In two widths, the wider stripe a trifle
darker tlian the other. Its bodice had
draped bretellcs of the silk, but sides,
back, epaulettes and yoke were of
pleated gray velours. Similar pleats
formed the cuffs, and vest; belt and col
lar were crimson velvet. Then on each
side of the skirt's front breadth were
panels made of bias pleats of the ve
lours, each pleat adorned with an oxy
dized silver button. A closet full of
simple gowns could be had for the price
of this one, and could be made with
less trouble.
Orange is accepted as a fashionable
shade for young women and proves
stunningly becoming to a lot of them.
Indeed, some women suddenly shine
forth in unexpected beauty of coloring
under the Influence of a yoke of orange,
mirror velvet This Is especially true
of the girl whose coloring is a little
coarse; the muddlness of her read and
the dullness of her white take on
clearness at once under the reflection
of orange. Certain types of white
blondes show a delicate pink in their
cheeks and a purity or whiteness in
the skin that no other coror makes so
delicate as does orange, while the rus
set maiden Is a dream of vitality and
vivid coloring If you give her a dash of
the same bright color. There are all
sorts of shades to choose from starting
with an almost butter yellow with a
tinge of red in it, to a deep burnt-crust
copper shade of yellow. The color com
bines royally with rich blue, is highly
effective with a yellowisn green of the
chatreuse order, and with either clear
while or plain black Is charming.

October days have departed. The
mind will be refurnished from the mar
vel of light, grace and coloring, with
pictures framed as memory may af-
ford. Art can never supersede naturs.
Art in accord with nature, reverent
before the aspects of fields, forest and
roadway, finds, even although It may
yet be far and away ffom taking rank
with the hand unseen, it gains to itself
a productive power not otherwise ob
tainable. Why should the artist study human
models only? Why not be one of na
ture's pupils who has for her producer
the highest the one Creator? The out-of-doors
studio was never more beauti
ful with Its freest of offerings to obser
vation than in the present year, safely
may it be said. Superb has been the
autumn sunlight. Fair unto perfect-
ness have eyes beheld the skies that
looked benignly down upon the earth
beneath the good old earth, still over
spread with greenest sward beyond the
dry and dusty highways.
City splendors; classical, friendly,
elm-boughs, have surely attracted dur
ing the sunlighted days so recently de
parted. Rural roads have stretched
their Interminable lengths with win
ning invitation, out . with the rreat
heart of nature, many tired spirits have
found peace with self, and freedom
from the fret and care of necessary
'taking thought' for this so fleet mortal
What a calm broods over one when
left alone with nature! Her speech,
though silent, Is strong Her word of
love to the appreciative heart is un
failing. The few clinging leaves, some
of them tremulous, some of them frol
icsome still, upon the trees, In late Oc
tober, seem like the witchery of humor
and pathos in the blending. They lure
a smile to human Hps. Their tender
whisperings receive response from
minds tot;'hed secretly by parting
thoughts. Rock, hill and stream the
placid lake unite in rhythmical strains
not heard, but music-toned to quick
ened sight that greets with inward
pense as acute as that which acknowl
edges the harmonies prepared for the
delicacv of the ear. Flowers of the
forest have "lain them down to sleep,"
guarded by the kindly mother of them
all. Who of us shall be present at their
next awakening? Wrap their couches
warmly! Watch their places securely.
O earth, that must at last make room
for us all to lie as in rest of body while
the spirit goes soaring onwardB! Shel
ter the flowers for us, while we erst re
main; the song-birds have flown from
chilling winds. Who, who shall protect
them if humankind betray the trust?
Even into the country-sides the shame
of human womankind, ' has reached.
Still are the songsters slain for vain
adornment. Still man pursues the
airy creatures for this vanity of vanl
ties! He enriches his purse from the
spoils. ,,,
God looks upon the terrible work of
man. The Father of Spirits does not
acquaint us (with words) as to His
thought of womankind, in this passion
for following cruel custom. But, does
woman think of the Father, whose cre
ation owns its inherent sacredness?
Does her heart feel security in prayer,
serenity in so-called praise of God
while she upholds to heavenly sight the
spectacle of murdered innocence her
head the pedestal of woe! ., Will she
wait for law the common world-law-
to pass sentence upon murderer and
wearer of our birds? To glance In at
the millinery windows one would vouch
for this. Such law has been passed in
another state than our own Connecti
cut. Could we but write the law (un
forced) within our hearts! Then it
should be handed down in love to our
kind as years of light Increase.
Who that has read Thoreau and Em
erson, Burroughs and Higglnson, hav
ing walked, as It were, with them
through the depths of the forests, and
seen through their eyes the haunts of
gay and tuneful birds, could go again
for the purpose of murder? What wo
man or girl could deck her hat or bon
net with precious bird or beautifully
painted wing?
Who that has learned through the
novels of the author Cable (so at one
with nature!) and associated with the
essayists of our time in their admira
tion of the beauty, the songs, of varl
ous birds once abounding, could des're
to destroy or wear any of the same?
There sometime seems a ruthlesBness In
plucking wlldwood blossoms from their
parent stem for the sake of passing
pleasure. But the atmosphere Is
robbed of very life when feathered
wings must cease to impart their gi'ts
through human wantonness. Instinct
with air and light, the bird-form soars
upward man making it descend, who
forgets his higher power, to himself as
cend in thought, in spirit. Woman au
thorizes by her willingness to his deed.
