When he opens his letters in the senate he may be seen crinkling the paper between his fingers and holding it up to the light to observe the watermark, before reading the communications. It is the habit of a lifetime and one of the customs of his craft. . : : A pleasant Incident of the reception given to Bishop Goodsell, formerly of this City, by the Methodists of Provi dence the other evening, was the read ing of a letter from Bishop McViekar. He was sorry he couldn't "be with them, and sent cordial greetings to their guest. Carrying out experiments in psychic phenomena, some scientists at Ruvo produced some striking results.

The New York Tribune welcomes the new Yale periodical and says: "The first number of a new Yale periodical has appeared under the name of Yale Monthly Magazine, and with an illu minated cover, which Is in startling contrast to' that of Its venerable, sedate and doubtless esteemed contemporary, the Yale Literary Magazine. It will pay for articles written by students, but not for contributions from gradu ates or members of the faculty, and hopes to get advertisements enough to live oi). Good luck to a bald venture'.'' The amount of money transmitted by tlie money order and postal note divi- sions of the Canadian postoffice, has increased in ten years from $12,081,860 to $36,229,050. The , Montreal Gazette says that while the general prosperity must have largely contributed to this increase, the principal' sources of growth have been development of the mail-order business and the influx of foreigners wlx send a part of their earn ings abroad. In 1887 the total of money orders Issued in Canada and payable in foreign countries was $2,306,395; in 1905 It was $8,938,991. FRESH A III. Every day brings something new in medicine and ways to cure the diseases which fle3h is heir to. To get cured of pneumonia one was 'supposed to be kept in a heated atmosphere, and steam baths were considered very helpful. Now comes the information that a cold air cure is just the thing heeded. This new mode of treating pneumonia has been tried for the last two months at the Fordham hospital, Ne'w York, with most happy results. The patients are placed out of doors, in tents, even in winter, A'here they will get plenty of fresh air. Dr. Thomas Joseph Dunn, who has been permitted to make the experiment at Fordham, says that thirty sufferers from the malady have been so treated since November 1, and only one has died. The New York Tri bune, commenting on this method of treatment, remarks: "The story which Dr. Dunn tells is not in itself incredi ble. It is within the range of possibil ity that he has hit upon an expedient which is really helpful. His statements certainly deserve careful attention. Nevertheless, his plan needs a mucb more extensive trial than it has yet re ceived before much confidence can be placed in it. It may be found that something besides fresh air has been at work in behalf of Dr. Dunn's patients. Hospital history is full of inconsisten cies. For Instance, out of sixteen suf ferers from cerebro-spinal meningitis who were' taken almost simultaneously to Roosevelt hospital last year all but two died. Shortly afterward sixteen more were taken to the same institu tion, ajid all but two of these recovered. In all scientific matters the broader the base of facts the firmer the superstruc ture of theory." And while on the fresh-air subject it is interesting to note the "newly-discovered" roof cure for pneumonia which the Presbyterian hospital in New York is said to be applying to its sick babies. No doubt fresh, pure outdoor air is much more helpful in curing the babies than the air in a house room in a hospital ward, no matter how well the ward Is ventilated, and even if all the windows were open all the time night and day, which Is impracticable in cold weather, the outdoor air would still be far purer. The splendid results achiev ed already by the sanitarium at Wal lingford are most gratifying. But every one, especially the old and the delicate, cannot sleep out of doors with safety, particularly in bitter cold weather. No one, however, can doubt that the out door air is very helpful in all systemic diseases from typhoid, fever to tubercu losis, but no disease can be cured by fresh air alone. OVR CHINESE HRXTHREX. Our Chinese visitors are having a fine time, and certainly they cannot com plain of lack of attention and coutesles from our government. While they are here thy will have afforded them every opportunity to study our social, political, industrial, commercial fni financial Institutions. Uncle Sam Is spending a lot of money for their en tertainment and to further the object of their miRBldn. Certainly they are treated with the highest respect, and they can but carry back most favor able Ideas regarding1 this nation-' No doubt they will report some good sto ries concerning us, but kind attention, banquets, sleigh rides, etc., will not "cut much Ice" with the Chinese na tion. What they want is a change in the Anti-Chinese Immigration law, and they will not be satisfied with anything less. In spite of ail official proclama tions to the contrary, the boycott on American merchandise will be more or less successfully continued, and Amer ican residents of China will be regarded by the natives with sentiments the re verse of friendly. We ought to be courteous to the Chinese instead of treating them as though they were sav ages, which has been too much the practice In the past; but we ought also to e just to them, and we certainly ought to live up to our treaty obliga tions- In its fear of the sand lot ora tors of San Francisco Congress has failed to do so. The present law forbids the entrance of Chinese persons with certain excep tions. There is no authority for that. The admission of Chinese ought to be made the rule and their exclusion the exception. The Chinese coolie or la borer should be excluded and the law should stop there. That Is what the Chinese want. That is what the Pres ident advises. MEXARKAliLE. Hardly a day passes In Vienna with out a case of suicide in that city or its vicinity. Last year the total number of cases was 1,009, made up of 670 men and 339 women. Of these, 352 men and 96 women actually put an end to their lives, and 561 failed in their attempts- The suicides include Individuals of every class and rank of life. Their ages vary from an old woman of nine-ty-fpur, who threw herself from a win dow in June, to a girl of fourteen, who did the same in September. Curiously enough, May claims ttie most victims, and November the fewest. Among the men, 160. hanged themselves, 112 used the revolver, and 27 poison, 2 drowned themselves, 15 threw themselves from heights, 5 under trains and trams, while 5 cut their throats, and 1 sought to burn himself to deativ. The women chose 26 throwing out of window, 23 hanging, 19 poison, 15 shoot ing, 8 drowning, and 5 cutting their throats. Hunger and love, illness and temporary insanity were the principal causes in the cases of the men; illness (Incurable or too painful to be borne), 85; folly, 41; want, S3; family quarrels, 29; sheer weariness of life, 28; hopeless love, 27; bad business, 26; grief at the loss of relations, 5; and fear of punish ment, 4. In 74 cases the motives were undiscoverable, '. In the category of women the causes attributable were: Love and madness, each 18; Illness, 13; want, 9; unhappi ness at home, 9; grief over lost rela tives, 5; sick of life, 5; bad circum stances, 1; fear of the law, 1;. and 1? cases of unknown causes. Certainly committing suicide seems to be an altogether too popular pastime in that quarter of Europe, and some per sons of enquiring mind ought to ascer tain what the inciting causes are for this unhappy state of things. At he End of Arrjuly. At the uttermost end of Arcady There lies a garden fair, And two and two the lovers bo Who one dny wander there. And love who walked with them deb onair Through the pathways intricate, Sits down cit last on a mossy stair And yawns, and is glnd of it. At the uttermost and of Arcady A quiet garden lies, Peaceful and fair and still to see Under its cloudless skies, There comes no danger to rouse sur prise, The fears ot the road are gone. But little Love rubs his drooping eyes And smothers a sleepy yawn. . At the uttermost end ot Arcndy Is the goal of settled things; Strange, thry walk in it soberly Who strove for the peace it brings. The still night goes and the full sun swings His lamp o'er the silent lawns, But little Love sits with listless wings And stretiMies his arms and yawns. Theodosia Garrison in Life. To Editor ot the Journal and Courier Those who have ears to hear let them hear, but those who have eyes to see let them see not, waB the order at "Woolsey hall at the Campanarl concert. There lovely, delicate and cultured women appeared with picture hats so large that it was Impossible for many, to see Signor Campanaii, only as he made his entrances and exits- While, of course, it i3 not necessary to see a singer to get some, enjoyment from the voice, yet, we think it Is ad mitted that the pleasure 1s greatly in creased if at tlnws the singer Is vis ible. That Americans to-day, from natural culture and regard for their fellow men, refrain from doing anything that may in the slightest annoy others, we be lieve all will agree. . This pleasant fact is nowhere becoming so manifest as in places of public amusement. So H It not a pity that some women of our cultured city should show themselves to be so provincial and vulgar. It is said "they don't think." Ttwy don't need to think; it should be as na tural as breathing to women to have a little refinement. If mere man had attempted to smoke in Woolsey hall last Thursday even ing, they would have lacked refinement, and been stopped, as they ought to have ibeen. Yet we doubt if smoking by men would have shown any more lack of refinement, or been any more annoying, than was the wearing of picture hats by women, who were not stopped. To our after-dinner speakers, who have a flood of learning on all sub jects this befeathered one Is respect fully referred. QUIDNUNC. PA IXTISa.

It Started in San Francisco as a Chil dren's Emergency Hospital. Off Clay street, below Powell, there is a blind alley,, writes Adrian! Spandoni In the San Franscisco Chroni cle. At the end of the alley there is a house. In that house, until four years ago, there was a mission school exactly like dozens of others through out Chinatown. To-day, In that same house managed by the same people, there is the only Chinese orphanage In the United States. Four years ago the matron was one of many sincere, self sacrificing women, all treading the old conventional paths of religious mis sionary work. To-day she is the only white woman In Chinatown who is working along what may be called mo dern sociological lines. The change was made, not because the old work Is not a good one, but because scores of peo ple are doing It well, while no one was doing this work at all. Now It must not be supposed that Chinatown is teeming with neglected orphans. Quite the contrary, for their is no race on earth that takes better care of Its children than the Chinese. Leaving natural affection out, the Chinese religion turns on having des cendants to offer worship for their pa rents. A Chinese family without a child Is conservative buys a child if he has none of his own. As to the father who sells, evidently it is only an Ori ental Interpretation of "he wha has giving to him who has not . Therefore the present orphanage did not start because so many Chinese children had nJ homes. In fact, it did not begin as a real orphanage a all. From a kind of emergency hospital for children It has developed into one. Back of it all lies a single superstition thousands upon thousands of years old This is the way of It: Among all the fears that haunt the pagan Chinese mind there Is none stronger than the terror of ghosts. No mater how poor a Chinese family may be there Is always a special place set apart In the house as a death chamber It is generally a kind Of hall between the sleeping rooms, one end open to the sky, and furnished with the tablets o fthe ancestors and the gods for wor ship. If any one is sick, as soon as It is known that there is no hope he is carried to this room to die. Ho is not left alone, not deserted. His family and friends care for htm and stay with hltn to the last, fend even after he Is dead, do not leave the body. For him living they have only' love. But against his ghost they draw the line. Just what damage they expect the returning spirit to do is Impossible to find out. A peasant does not know clearly himself, or will not tell, and one cannot ask an educated, cultured Chinese. It would be like asking - a spectacled German scientist If he believed in the efficacy of a rabbit's foot. But whatever the reason, the fact re mains. And It remains here In our own Oriental quarter Just as in the heart of China, But conditions here do not permit each heathen family to have a dying room So there have always ex Isted, scattered throughout Chinatown, roms in whlcho one can die acordlng to the traditions of his ancestors. What could be more proper? And these rooms they call hi ping fong, or "rooms of everlasting, restful peace." What more poetical? It costs nothing for the pooreHt Chin ese to die properly, for these rooms are maintained by the companies. Further more, each room has its caretaker to iookw after those so poor and friend 3fo mhlt Ito (Httl (ton Sterling Mrttt The Ford Ccmpai ManuAciums 3p W . t Mr?'"

Only on one condition can a man refuse to die acordiruj to custom If he Is a "paying partner" in a room he cannot be turned out, But these two ways. To begin with, there are gen erally ten or twelve "paying partners" In each room. As soon as the doctor declares that there is no hope for the sick man, the ten Well partners des cend upon the landlord and threaten to leave if he does not have the sick man taken away. As the Chinese rent rooms for years as long as they are going to stay in the country and as no second set of "partners" would rent a room In which any one had died, the situatkm has nasty financial possibili ties. The landlord is usually equal to the occasslon. He finds a way to move the dying man elsewhere to breath his last. These special dying rooms were never among the show places of Chinatown. Perhaps the most accessible was In the rear of a narrow alley off Pacific street, below Stockton. But it is there no longer. About three years ago, In a periodic fit of cleanliness, the authori ties ordered the old tenement down. Perhaps the companies realized that this would soon be the fate of all the hi ping fong. At any rate, most of the others were closed up, too, and one general "room of everlasting, restful peace," was provided in the Oriental Dispensary on Sacramento street Only an Eastern mind could achieve such a combination a modern hospital, with a staff of American and Chinese doc tors, and a hi ping fon attachment. Perhaps, however, a fairer way to put it is this: The dispensary has accom modations for extreme cases. I ffODHf n Voice U&sVS. Builder Leanona not booking Itudlo, OS Insurance Uuiidlag. NOTICE.
