Jt. Charles H. Williams, jr., of Bos-,
ton, told the British Medical associa
tion, In session at Toronto, that there
should be some careful vislan and color
tests for licensed drivers of automo
biles as for men employed on railroads.
A New York police court magistrate
gave sound advice to four woe-begone
victims up before him for stealing a
ride on a New York Central freight
train. 'Tm going to let you boys go
free thiis time," said the magistrate,
ut listen and remember. It's all
right to steal a whole railroad, If you
can steal It in a lump, but It's wrong
to steal a railroad ride and get caught.
' Don't forget that. You're discharged."
The other day a man and a boy went
Into a London: shop to buy a hat. Aft
er a time the man was fitted to one.
Looking into the glass he said to the
youngster, "How do I look In this hat?"
"Like a thief," promptly responded
the boy. The man angrily darted to
ward him,' but the boy fled from the
shop pursued by the man. The shop
keeper laughed, and thought it all very
funny until their long absence made
him realize that he had been robbed.
Then he stopped laughing.
While playing in the grounds of a
Dutch church at Kroonstad, South
'Africa, two Boer children made an In
teresting discovery. With small spades
they were digging a whole, and Just
below the surface severalgold colna
were unearthed. They continued to
dig, gradually adding to their precious
etore. The youngsters soon had a pile
Of English gold sovereigns. The sex
ton then joined the search, and It was
not long tbefore treasure to the value of
nearly $5,000 in gold and silver coins
iwas brought to light. During the war
the church was used as a hospital and
(for housing refugees, and It is surmised
that the treasure must have been bur
ied by some one who is now dead.
The British naval officer who oppos
es Admiral Bradford's suggestion for a
marksmanship contest between the
British and American navies frankly
.eays: I will admit thut if Rear Ad
miral Bradford's statement that it is a
common matter for 12-inch guns to
make 10 hits out of 10 shots within a
liilnimum time in the American navy is
correct, and if the minimum time is
the same as that allowed for similar
.practice In the British navy and the
distance is the same, it is unnecessary
to have any competition between the
two countries, as we in the old coun
try have never succeeded In reaching
results so nearly approaching perfec
tion. There Is a tree on the Island of Cos,
In the Aegean Sea, under whose
tranches, It is said, both St Luke and
St. Paul rested. It Is a huge plane
tree, eighteen yards In circumference
and over two thousand years old. It
Is surrounded !by a podium, or raised
platform, breast high, doubtless built
to support the trunk of the tree after
It had become hollow and weak from
age. The lower branches are still well
preserved, and have been shored up by
pieces of antique columns, over the up
per ends of which the branches have
grown like caps, in consequence of the
pressure of their own weight. Close
ky the tree is a solid marble seat,
which is said to be the chair of Hippo
crates, the father of medicine, and It
Is supposed that he taught the art of
healing from that seat. He was born
at Cos, 460 B. C. This gives a clew to
the age of the celelbrated' plane tree,
which must be considerably more than
two thousand years old. The sultan
has the tree carefully guarded against
the depredations of relic hunters.

jy the sjecom) mai.se district.
One of the most Interesting of the po
litical incidents is the contest in the
Second Maine district, represented by
Charles Edgar Littlefield. As the dis
patches have noted, Samuel Gompers,
president of the American Federation
of Labor, Is now in the district, accom
panied by several labor spellbinders.
He is determined to make an example
of Littlefield because the congressman
did not take his advice with reference
to proposed labor legislation. This
week Speaker Cannon and some of his
orators and singers from the House of
Representatives are to Invade the dis
trict. Toward the close of the cam
paign Secretary Taft is to come down
from his summer home and raise his
voice for Littlefield.
It Is figured that if the labor organ
ization should defeat Littlefield the la
bor movement in politics would,' tem
porarily at least,, receive a new impe
tus. If Littlefield is re-elected by
something like his regular plurality the
labor movement in other congressional
districts will drag from that time on.
The shrewdest judges expect that he
will be re-elected about as usual, and
some thln'k that he may even do better
than usual. We shall see.
Our busy and all-around President
has gladdened the hearts of the spelling
reformers by accepting their invitation
to be one of them, and those who are
Interested in the success of the Gans
Nelson fight at Goldfleld, Nevada, aro
hoping that he will gladen their hearts
by accepting their invitation to bo pres
ent. This Is the way they seek to Im
press the President with the Idea of
what tho fight will be: "The citizens
o Goldfleld, having conquered the des
ert and being made of the kind of stutf
that makes men endure to win in any
struggle, look upon this contest as a
battle worth traveling thousands of
miles to see. Imbued with that spirit of
sturdlness which makes Argonauts,
they view the approaching event as an
exemplification of that determination
of purpose and aggressiveness of spirit
that so domlnantly characterize the
American race, and which haVe in a
great measure conduced to the ad
vancement of our beioved country."
Perhaps the President would like to
see this fight. He has been credited
with admiring the "spirit of sturdl
ness." But of course he cannot afford
to go even if he wants to, and perhaps
he cannot even afford to say that he
would like to go If public duties didn't
proas, etc., etc. But the invitation re
mains. Wonder if a President of the
United States was ever formally Invit
ed to a prize-fight before.
The War department of this country
has a good many problems besides
those which exist in the Philippines.
For Instance, one of the vexatious
questions confronting the coast artil
lerists is that of preserving the ex
pensive armament at northern posts
against the damaging effect of snow
and ice during the winter. Experiments
have been made at some of the New
England posts, with a view of finding
out Just what will be necessary to pre
serve the guns, and at the same time
keep up the standard of efficiency in
the operation of the coast defenses. It
Is necessary . to have some system
which will not prevent guns from be
ing placed In action within the shortest
possible time to meet any emergency
whloh might como up In winter, and
which would be, if this were not an
ticipated, an occasion for an enemy to
take advantage of the known fact that
at that season the defenses of the
northern coast are out of commission.
Several methods of covering the guns
with a temporary shelter have been
tested, and the artillery authorities
will shortly determine which of these
systems is the most effective.
'Speedy and complete success to those
who are working on this problem. New
Haven is Interested. She doesn't want
the guns at the Lighthouse to be any
less efficient than they are.
Consistency Is a Jewel, and so Is In
consistency sometimes. One of the
times appears to be when the govern
ment of this groat, glorious and still
comparatively free country was put in
the attitude of repulsing Chinese labor
ers from our shores and at the same
time asking them to come to the isth
mus and do work for us that our own
laborers will not and cannot do. . Only
2,500 coolies are asked for in the pres
ent invitation for bids, but if the ex
periment Is successful additional num
bers of Chinese may be called for by
the commission not to exceed 2,000 a
month. .The first lot are to be contract
ed for for a period of not less than two
years. Fifteen thousand is the limit
which the commission has fixed upon
as the number of laborers which it will
employ at any one time under present
conditions. The bids are to be open on
September 20. All proposals must be
accompanied by a check for $50,000, and
the bond of the successful bidder will
be advanced to $100,000.
The experiment will be given the clos
est scrutiny. If the Chinese are suc
cessful and can bo housed and con
trolled in a manner that does nut give
rise to scandals a step forward will
have been made in solving the labor
problem on the isthmus. The matter
of securing laborers has been the hard
est work the engineers and members of
the commission have had to face. It
was quickly learned that white men
from this country could not stand the
strain of manual labor in the tropics.
Apparently the Jamaica negroes could
not be made to work, Other sources of
labor were tried and found unable to
supply the demand. The experiment
with the Chinese was almost the last
Woes of a Socialist.
He was an honest workingman,
A Socialist would be,
And always meant to find a way
To set his fellows free.
But from a stately library
He got a book of rhyme
And, somehow, after it was read
He didn't have the time.
On scorching days he planned to make
The rich divide with him,
But first he sought spme cooling baths
In marble pools to swim,
Of course tho toilers still were slaves
And torrid was the clime.
But, somehow, after lie came out
He didn't have the time.
He meant to have the wealthy shorn
Of money's dastard power,
But to the Y. M. C. A. went
To pass an Idle hour.
Of course the rich were monsters yet
And dreadful was their crime.
But, somehow, with the evening gone
He didn't have the time.

And every day. when work was done
He paid a visit there. -Downtrodden

Two Errors From Which It has Suf
fcred, Says Dr Moxom.
The Rev. Dr. Philip S. Moxom writes
in the North American Review on
'The Trial of Christianity." He repres
ents Christianity as havln suffered
greatly from two errors; one was the
narrowing of God's interest, at first to
a single people, and then to a single
cult; the other is the identifying of
Christianity with an ecclesiastical In
stitution and a theological system, in
forgetfulness of the fact that Jesus
came, not to give a religion, but to re
veal God and the true spirit and manner
of life.
The test of a religion ia its ability to
produce god men and women and a be
neficent social order. Tried by this test
our so-called Christian civilization is
un-Christian; the forces dominating in
it are individualism, self-assertion, In
justice, selfishness, pride and greed for
riches, and the doctrine prevails among
us that the teachings of Jesus are not
practical in business, political and in
ternational intercourse. Now, if Shln-
toist and Buddhist Japan can produce
a higher, saner, more just, self-con
trolled, more unselfish individual and
social life than Christian England or
America, by that fact Christianity,
these peoples have exemplified it, must
be inferior to Shlntosim ana tsuaanism
But what really will suffer in that case
is not the Christianity of JesuB, but the
Christianity which we nave made.
"The truth is that humanity is one
in its fundamental characteristics,
oe.f ds and possibilities. Truth, right
eousness, justice and good will ftre ea
Bontial everywhere to nappy and bene
ficent life. That teaching which clearly
and effectively presents these Is the
best teaching. That life which most
closely conforms to these Is the best
life. That faith which most directly and
powerfully Inspires to these Is th best
faith. We be.lle.ve that Jesus and his
teachings meet all the conditions. If
we did not, we should not, when once
awakened to the meaning of moral ob-
ligation, profess adherence to them.
But the question is up will not down:
Are we genuinely Christian? The ques
tion Is, first of all, one for the individ
ual man and woman. It is, second, one
for society, if individuals are persisten
ly Chistian,, they will make society
Chistian. Where is the difficulty? We
have not taken Jesus frankly at His
own word and on His own terms. With
prfct proplerty, with absolute Justice,
He might say to us, as He said to
some professed disciples In His time:
'Why call y6 nle Lord, Lord and dp not
the things that I say.' We read these
worifcs in the New Testiment, but, will
curious fatuity, we never suspect that
they are addressed to us. It may be
that the Church and the Christendom
which is identified with the Church are
to ,ear te doomful words which were
spoken to the ancient 'elect people
of God: "The Kingdom of God shall
be taken away from you and given to
a people bringing forth the fruits there
of. "
Some persons air their good manners
as they do their good clothes, on holi
days ana other occasions of more than
ordinary moment. These manners being
assumed for ' the time, are unnatural
aud are readily distinguished from the
genuine article. It is too often the case
that persons will be churlish and dis
agreeable to those at home, their near
est and dearest, and yet when they ap
pear among strangers will be courteous
In the extreme, wining golden opinions
for their affability and distinguished
There are others whose amiability can
bo seen at its best in the home circles;
these are the ones who can always bo
relied upon, whose steady cheerfulness
In times of trouble endear them to
everyone with whom they como in con
tact, says the Boston Traveler.
Good manners are Innate with some
people; with others they are more or
less acquired. Whoro Ignorance of
prescribed rules exists, tact wll often
lead them out of social difficulty Im
pending, It is Important for the scho
lar or man of genius not to neglect the
minor courtesies of social life.
A proper regard for the felings of
others wll.1 often cause a person ignor
ant of all social usages to hit the pro
per vein in good manners.
Heedless people bring up topics of
conversation regardless of the feelings
of a portion of those whom they aro
addressing. The lattr may hold differ
ent views on religion and politics, but
on goes the heedless one, ruthlessly
tramping on the most tender Corns of
million, cherished by some sensitive one
amohg the number, w ho is too well bred
to make any reply.
Those possessed of truly good man
ners, as distinguished from surface pol
ish, will alwayr and on every occasion
have a proper regard for the aged.
What more beautiful sign is there than
devotion fro yours to the aged around
them? On the other hand, to see, as
s frequently the case, children allow
ed to mlnic and ridicule tottering age
Is a shame an disgrace to the age in
which we live! It is truo that "It Is
never too late to learn," but thase that
have the nioet agreeable manners and
who exhibit urbanity under any clrcum
stances, are the ones in whom good
manners were instilled In early child
hood. '

The Sun's account of Hearn agrees
with' all the competent authorities of
whom we have had knowledge dining
the past twenty or twenty -five years.
It Is notorious that he was engaged In
Congo rcasearch, both in Cincinnati
and New Orleans. It is equally cer
tain that after leaving tho latter city
In the early '80's he continued for sev
eral years to prosecute that same re-
reach in the West Indies. Finally, it
Is a mater of established history that
from the West Indies ho went to Ja
pan, where, he sot up his domestic es
tablishment, associating wholly with
the natives, so far as concerned his
private life, marrying a native, and
generally immersing himself In a
strictly native atmosphere. There, is
no doubt, as In this country, his profes
slonal occupations brought him , In
contact with peopl e of culture and
high social position. There also he
extorted from a.11 who were capable of
even approximately appraising his as
tonlshlng attainments, essential and
acquired, the very warmest admlra
tlon. But' Hearn, of pure Caucasian
stock himself, never made a place
among his own kind, never sought or
would acept a Caucasian entourage,
