What can be thought of it is Illus trated by the fact that a bill is now be fore the General Court of Massachu setts providing that every automobile shall be equipped wlto a gong ringing with each revolution of the wheels. Korea Is quite a oountry. Seoul, the capital, has 22,000, and is constantly in creasing. Already 60,000 Japanese live in the kingdom. No less than $8,000,000 has been spent on railways. The for eign trade was worth $26,616,487 last year. One of the drift casks provided by the Geological Society of Philadelphia haB been picked up oa the coast of Ireland, S,600 miles from the point whre it was cast overboard on the Alaskan coast, after floating nearly six years. It is Supposed to have drifted across t,he waters about the North Pole. In Franoe, when smallpox appears anywhere, a calf with vaccine pustules Is taken bodily to the place and all the neighboring inhabitants are vaccinated, frequently In the street, directly from the. animal. The calf is sent from a "'Ol itrion m fans, and there eclaK jad accommodations for Its transport In an interview in Washington ex Governor Evans, of South Carolina, said that he did not credit the report that Roosevelt will seek a third term, or that he would be nominated by the Democrats: "I don't believe that any 'man will ever occupy the presidential Office for three terms as long as this re public lasts. The unwritten law against It Is enough, and, besides, even with the strongest and most strenuous occupants of the White House, there Is sure to come a waning popularity. But this drivel of a Democratic nomination for Roosevelt is stupid." . Cornelius V. Collins, superintendent of New York state prisons, says in his annual report that 900 prisoners, ap proximately 24 per cent, of the total number, are receiving educational In struction. Tfoe school for adult prison ers is believed to be the most complete of any prison school in the country. Mr. Collins urges that the penalty for murder in the second degree be impris onment under an indeterminate sen tence, the minimum to be thirty-three years, . less the usual commutation for good conduct, and the maximum life. The London Standard says that the painting "Venus and the Mirror," by Velasquez, which is valued at from $200,000 to $250,000, has been secured by Great Britain for the National Gallery, an anonymous individual having guar anteed the purchase money. The op tion given by the owners to the govern ment expired some days ago. More than one foreign offer has been receiv ed exceeding the stipulated price. The French government offered $25,000 above the price fixed by the owners. The sub scriptions in Great Britain for the pur chase of the painting have not reached half the price asked, but the lists will be kept open to relieve the guarantor of as much of the cost as possible. It may be stated that all connoisseurs have not been anxious that the paint ing should be added to the British collection- Among those objecting to its purchase is Lord Ronald Gower, a trus tee of the National Portrait Gallery. He admits, however, that It is a fine study in flesh, but declares that It Is wholly lacking In beauty and reflr.a ment. "Our friend Is an enthusiastic sup porter of the Panama canal.

"Washington Star. HOME, SWEET HOME. The last few days have added, if any thing could add, to the desirability of life in New Haven. For instance, why does anybody need to go to London when anybody can have a real London fog, such as we have Just emerged from in New Haven? Why does any body need to go to the highlands of Colorado or California when anybody can have such a climate as we who are privileged to live in . New Haven had yet .rday? In short, why should any body who lives here go anywhere ex cept for a 'change, and to thoroughly learn that there is no place like home, when home is Now Haven? Let us continue to live in New Ha ven as long and as well as we can, and if we 'must go to Heaven by and by let us be as cheerful as we can about It. A MlSSOVItl LAW. Missouri fcas a law which seems to have soihe sense in it, and a cynic might perhaps say that that is the rea son why it hasn't been used. But be this as it may, It is now 'invoked, and the case Is interesting. This law pro vides for the imprisonment of a person who Is a notorious criminal but against whom no specific charge can be brought. It assumes that an evil rep utation growing out of association with criminals and Implying participation in certain crimes constitutes prima facie evidence of the criminal character, and lnferentially justifies society in impris oning such person on general principles. A man named Spalding Is the one to whom this law is to be applied, and he appears to be a proper subject for its application. He has a prison record, al though It does not show, claim the po lice, anything like the full number of his crimes. He himself confesses that he can never reform and that impulses to steal dominate all good influences. We suppose some sentimentalists would think it better to wait until Spalding stola again or murdered some body before depriving him of his "lib erty." There are others who think that one who Is hopelessly criminal is In his right place in prison, earning his living and not likely to be able to dam age honest people. MADE IK 1SOSTOX. The other day we were glad to notice that good wives and housekeepers might be "made in Germany" if distin guished educators In that country could succeed In making the education of women In domestic work as compulsory as the education of men for military work. , We now notice with pleasure that our own Boston Is already prepar ing young women to be good wives and housekeepers, though there is nothing compulsory about it. It appears that the Boston Cookinp School, Incorporat ed with the college founded by the late John Simmons, which will enable women to earn an Independent liveli hood, has developed into a comprehen sive course in household science and economics. "Under household values," says the dean of this very modern school for young women, "we aim to discuss the relative expenditures of every family. The discussions will In clude the rent, the food supply, the fur nishing, the light, fuel, service, the out lay for wardrobes, for social diversion, with an eye to possible illness in the family, increase of Us numbers, and even the misfortune of temporary lapse of income." While a great percentage of the women who are taking the four years' course in this schooJ, which cov ers a vast deal o science as well as household art, are really preparing themselves for Institutional work that Is, to be matrons and superintendents of colleges, hospitals, orphanages, re formatories and the like a very flatter ing proportion of the students are sim ply training themselves for the duties of life that may present themselves, whether as wives and mothers or teach ers and guardians, as fate may decree or their destiny unfold.. So far, so good. Wives or housekeep ers made in ' Boston ought to be all right. XOT A PEACEFUL MECEVTIOX. It isn't as quiet everywhere in the world as it is "in New Haven. Some idea of the political spirit prevailing in some parts of Hungary may be gained from the details cf the treatment re cently accorded to M. JCovacs, who re cently had the misfortune to be ap pointed by the King high sheriff of Haiduck county, of which Debrecsln Is the chief city. This has always been a Magyar stronghold. Previous to the arriva.' of M. Kovacs the citizens issued a proclamation of boycott and excom munication against him. They had a hearse at the railroad station for his conveyance and a bodyguard armed with rotten eggs. Forewarned, he re fused to leave the train, but he was pulled out, pelted, thrown down and trampled on. He was then, according to a local paper, lifted up so that he could be stoned and beaten the mora effectively. He was rapidly dragged to the hearse outside, thrown upon it, and, as it started, the crowd sang the Kos suth Hymn. In this way he was con veyed through the streets to the chief square, where he fell from the hearse and. tried to take refuge in a coffee house. The crowd, however, headed him off and drove him across the street, where he fell unconscious under the archway of the savings bank. Two bank clerks protected him from further injury and carried him upstairs, while the citizens broke the windows and tried to storm the building. His head, which was bleeding in many places, and his left hand, of which two fingers were smashed, were then bound up, and when he had recovered consciousness he was, at the instance of a committeeman for public safety, inluced to sign his resig nation. The affair naturally has pro voked much indignation in Vienna. A Doable Life. My neighbor leads a double life A fashion much in vogue A dramatic rascal he is, sure, And a literary rogue. For when my neighbor Is at home His choice of books or play Is not at all the same as when My neighbor goes away. When he is home he buys the books Of literary style That analyze the human soul, And woe and gloom up-pile. He goes in for dissection keen, With problems of the time, The novels on heredity, And on the Modern Crime. But when my neighbor goes away, The books he reads oh, my! Adventures, yellow tales and jokes As low as breukfast pie. To latest books, he says, "Go 'way! Or I'll do something rash; At home I have to read that rot Now give me good old trash." My enighbor, when he is at home, And feels the drama draw, Will only go to Ibsen plays, Or rave o'er Bernard Shaw. He'll see none but a problem play, A work tliut makes one think And turns in scorn from mere mirth shows, Philosophy to drink. But when my neighbor goes abroad, No Ibsen do.es he see He fights in throngs that rush to buy lioouB seals lor l ladle-Dee. He takes revenge for Shaw et al. In song and ilanoe and buzz; And most of us, I think somehow,' Do us my neighbor does. Baltimore American. yiAHTEMS. Some people arrive at a conclusion and never get away from it.

How Titled Ladles of Great Britain Have Helped Native Industries. Many ladles are excellent organizers, writes Lady Violet Grevllle in the Lon don Dally Chronicle; many of them have a talent for collecting round them the night people and putting them in the right places, while they are also gifted with such acumen and judicious insight into character as enables them triumphantly to conquer difficulties The work done by the Scotch and Irish industries alone proves this. The Duchess of Sutherland has re stored comfort and activity to many a village home which for lack of work was perishing, and by her unwearied energy and example has developed the making of homespuns and tweeds into a real and flourishing Industry. She, in the north of Scotland, Lady Arnerdeen in central Scotland and the Duchess of Buccleuch in tho south practically sweep the country between them and command an excellent sale for .the pro ducts of their taste and judgment. The industry so valuable to the poor crofters who weave in the long winter months has steadily progressed from the first initial opening, when the turn over was nineteen hundred pounds, till It Is now twenty-four hundred pounds. As was very wisely observed recently at the Leeds exhibition, "We don't de sire an unemployed fund, we wish to keep the poor employed." One great advantage of the materials they sup ply, which are dyed with seaweed, which gives lovely tints, 'unattainable otherwise, is that they are all good, genuine and durable. As an illustra tion, there Is a story current that two suits of Harris tweed were sold by a worker to a couple who wished to be dressed alike .on their tandem bicycle. Year after year, when the friend visi ted them, they were still wearing the suits; at last in the fifth year the friend saw them no longer and thought they must be worn out, when, (behold. In came five little children, all clothed alike in the identical tweed, etlll as good as ever. What these ladles have done in Scot land by reviving the cottage industries has been repeated In Ireland by the Duchess of Abercorn, Lady Aberdeen, Lady Londonderry, Lady Cadogan, Lady Arthur Hill and many others. In Ireland the old art of making beau tiful lace, which was languishing for lack of encoragement a few years ago, is now successfully practised, and fashion in Paris, by some inscrutable process known only to itself, has or dained that this season Irish lace ehould be the "dernier cri de la mode " Whole gowns' are fashioned of It, blouses of fairylike texture tempt the purse and the vanity, of the elegante, while no dress is considered complete without the addition of a jabot, apele rine or a trimming of Irish lace. . Lady Dudley, wife of the ex-Viceroy of Ire land, has encouraged the manufacture and sale of lace to the utmost of her aioility, and Lady Mayo seconds her ef forts in giving designs, advice and as sistance of all kinds to the workers. But lace, tweeds, friezes and serges are not the only manufactures dis tressed Ireland produces. Lady Ken mare, in the delightful and poetical re gions of Klllarney, has organized a new industry in the shape of inlaid furniture made by the natives, which can vie in beauty and finish with any other work of the kind. It is almost superfluous to mention the well known lingerie and art needle work executed in convents, schools, &c, and encouraged, presided over or actually created by women. When one considers how difficult it is to reorgan ize a dying trade, to enter uaon busi ness as an untrained person, to find out the best markets for the sale of goods, to create fashion, that most capricious of females, and to make both ends meet, It must be confessed that women of the present day have shown remark able aptitude for organization, clear ness of aim and unparalleled activity and perseverance in carrying out their somewhat " ambitious alms. Lady Warwick's experiments in technical schools, ardening and agriculture are well established and have opened sev eral new careers to women. Lady Henry Somerset's temperance work and htr homes or inebriate wo men are the outcome of a lifelong de votion, and one knows not which to ad mire most, the strength that has ena bled her to travel all over America in the cause, the silvery tones of her clear voice when she pleads for the poor and the wretched, or the admirable disci pline and wisdom with which she rules her little communities, and the decided success that has attended them- The Duchess of Montrose's mobby Is the establishment of district purses. Up to a few years ago such useful wo men were unknown In Scotland, the training of village mldwlves left much to be desired, and the poor In time of sickness were forced to depend on the mlnlsterlngs of relatives or the unskil ful If well meaning attempts of friends and neighbors. The duchess has or ganized a training home and nurses' home In Govan, one of the poorest su burbs of Glasgow, where any amount of experience can be acquired, and thence is able to send out duly quali fied nurses to any counties that re quire them. Tiny ventures of all kinds have been practised by other ibusy ladles, accord ing to their several capacities and Idio syncrasies. One, for instance, has started a holiday home for poor chil dren from the crowded cities where the little ones may beathe fresh tir and en joy the delights of running wild in the country for a fortnight; another takes charge of crippled children, perhaps the most pathetic work of all, and en deavors to restore them to health or to teach them trades by which they may be made self-supporting and happy. The Marchioness of Breadalbane has initiated an. .terestlng experiment in the education oforphan boys taken from the poorest class. The boys, about a dozen In 'number, are lodged in a nice workman's cottage in a beauti ful village, superintended by an intelli gent working woman, and sent to the village school. All these ftoya have turned out wel. One is a station mas ter, another an organist, a third an es tate cerk, a fqurtha head grdener, one or two of them having shown special capacity were sent to college, and did excellently. The great beauty of all these schemes In the voluntary effort comprised In them, and the personal Influence re quired to bring them to a satisfactory conclusion. They show that many wo men are seriously trying ta grapple with business, educational and social problems, and are busy In more senses than one. A REMARKABLE CLOCK. Result of Five Years Work of a Black Forest Mechanic, A clock which is in many respects one of the most notable in the world has been constructed, says the Jewel ers' Circular-Weekly, after five years of hard labor iby August Noll, a skilled mechanic of Villlnger, one of the old and picturesque cities of the German Schwarzwald and the former capital of the province of Baar, which came Into the possession of Baden In 1806. The people of this region are diligent and talented, and the making of chicks has been for two hundred years a na tive Industry among them. Those first made were wooden clocks with a sort of balance, and were very simple in construction. Gradually the work grew in perfection and the pen dulum took the place of the balance; In still later times came metallic clocks with mainsprings, until now the most elaborate and artistically designed time-pieces of every kind are sent all over the world, into the humble dwell ings of the middle classes and the palaces of the wealthy. The astronomical clock finished by August Noll almost surpasses In Inge nuity of construction, ' variety of me chanism and number of figures not only the famous clocks of Prague and Goslar, but even the renowned master- Burner fhta Urcakfast rta (Cups, g-auxrni, ftlair a The Foid Compa Manufacturers Importers. piece of Isaac Habrecht, the wonder of the Strasburg Cathedral It Is at present-on exhibition in Munich, and it is unlikely that it will ever be "permitted to leave that city. The case, of walnut wood, about fourteen feet high, twelve feet wide and three feet deep, is fashioned in the form of a church of the early Renais sance style, of harmonious design and pleasing to the aesthetic sense. The calendar mechanism, rollers, chimes, striking works, &c, are arranged to work for one hundred years. During a whole century the clock will show not only the seconds, -minutes, quarter hours and hours, the days, weeks, months and years, but also the mova ble festivals of the Christian ear Tn different days and seasons are Intro duced by processions of appropriate figures, 'skilfully carved, accompanied by music, with bugle solos and watch men's horns, or cock crow and cuckoo calls.
