The station consists of four iron towers 213 feet high. There Is a new universal language called "Trlnti," the invention of Dr. S. A. Frazier, of Berkeley, California. It Is a combination of Latin, Greek and Anglo-Saxon, and contains no words significant of anger, ill-will or other unpleasant emotions. It wont make much headway until after election. Children in Italy are not allowed to rub their eyes. When an Infant bursts into tears no efflort is made to repress the emotion, but the youngster is al lowed to have its cry out. It Is assert ed that this beautifies the eyes and makes them clear, while rubbing the eyes injures them in many ways. ! The talk is that the "beauty doctor" has begun to discover a demand for her services of a new kind. Female em ployes euch as shop girls, milliners, dressmakers and those In other situa tions try to retain as much as possible a bright look of youth, from no coquet tish desire to preserve their good looks, but simply under the grim pressure of otherwise inevitable loss of employ ment. Many of the clothespins come from Bryant's Point, Maine, where a man has been quietly turning trees into clothespins for years and supplying the world with them, amassing In the pro cess as comfortable a fortune as many a man makes in a more pretentious business in some money centers. His name is Lewis Mann, and he began with a capital of $400, with which he purchased an old, disused mill and be gan the manufacture of clothespins. To-day he is the largest individual maker of this very necessary article in the world. Consul Young thinks our drug export ers and surgical instrument makers should be able to work up a really good trade in Turkey. "The leading physicians," he writes from .Harput, are Armenians, graduates of the Amer ican missionary schools and colleges. Each important center in this region is occupied by one or more of these physicians- AU of them are acquainted with and use American pharmaceutical products. The largest and best equlp per pharmacy here is the Euphrates pharmacy atHarput, which is ownedand conducted by the American colony. A consulting room has been fitted up in connection with the pharmacy for the Use of the city physicians. Catalogues of many American manufacturers of surgical Instruments, drugs, and phar maceutical goods are kept on file in this room, and the druggist in attendance is charged with the duty of calling them to the attention of the visiting physi cians and druggists." The War department authorities have been considerably bothered by the case of a soldier who was reported for mis conduct and peculiar actions, including desertion. When brought to trial it was disclosed that he thought himself irresponsible, added to which opinion there was testimony from his associ ates to the same effect. It was found that there was insanity in the soldier's family, and the doctors had no trouble in reporting him subject to periodical insanity. He was recommended by his immediate military superiors for dis charge without honor for the good of the" service, an action which carries with It certain disabilities blocking pension or other claims. When the War department officials came to look over the papers it was considered that if the man were not responsible men tally for his acts it was unjust to dis charge him "without honor," and ac cordingly it has been decided that in such cases as this, where the defence involves such a mental stale on the part of the accused soldier, there shall be granted a summary discharge. EASY. If Mr. Frank S. Butterworth's suc cess in public life is as easy and abundant as v. his entry into it he will have no reason to And. fault. His nomination for Senator from the Eighth district of New Haven was unanimous, and his election will be as nearly so as the Republicans and the disorganized and discouraged Dem ocrats can make it. When Mr. Butter worth was first mentioned as a candi date he very frankly said that he would like the place, and wouldn't need the usual urging by "friends." But he hasn't had to make much effort for it, and will not have to. This is a truly Republican year in Connecticut, and es pecially in New Haven. t THE SECVItlTY'S 1'LAX. The directors of the Security In surance Company of this city, like the directors of many other insurance com panies, have been planning to repair the flamage done It by the" San Fran cisco catastrophe.. The plan has been made public, and it is both adequate and Judicious. The directors advise the reduction of the capital stock by re ducing the par of the stock from $40 a share to $25 a share. This would transfer into the surplus $1S7,500 and leave the stock at $312,500. The direc tors further advise that 7,500 new shares be issued, which, at a par of $25, would restore the capital to $300,000. This new stqck, at $-10 a share, which it seems to be richly worth, will not only restore the capital to $500,000 but will add $112,500 to the surplus, making the surplus by this operation $300,000. It is further recommended that au thority be given the directors to Issue from time to time In their discretion 8,000 more shares on such terms and conditions and to such persons as will, in their Judgment, best promote the in terests of the company, and this stock Is not to be Issued at less than $40 a share. This plan has been carefully devised, and when it has been carried out the company will be able to go on to new prosperity. It Is a sound and solid in stitution. SO It EST FOn THE OOOI. Our steady old State can't be quite easy, it seems. We must now, If we value our liberty and rights, sit up nights guarding 'them against the as saults of the Modoc club- The 'Todoo club, appropriately enough, has its lair in the wilds of Bridgeport, and this is the way the Bridgeport Standard talks about It: Steadily, surely, the arms of that group of gambler-politicians have been Teaching out, Insidiously, grasping one vantage point after another in the political arena, until now the astonish- ed .element In the Democratic party which stands for respectability awl clean government by clean men Is shocked to learn that Fairfield county Democracy has been turned over bodily to the gamblers, while they seem to have a foot upon the whole State. Even in the political world, where meteor flights are common, the rise and growth of the Modoc club have been astonish ing. From a little coterie of Bridgeport gamblers It has enlarged and Its pow er has increased until it Involves many nominees of the Democratic ticket. The MulvihiU administration, in spite of what few half-hearted denials have been made, Is generally regarded in Bridgeport as having stood for and fos tered the Modoc club, and supporters of that administration stand under that stigma. If the Modoc club has one of its big feet on the whole State it Is time to notice it. That foot must be lifted. Let's get together and Jump on Its corn. L ' " GOOD CREDIT. It Is easy for 'such rich folks as we are to get Into debt. We onn get trust ed, and we do. The total debt of the republic Is given in an advance bulle tin of the Census Bureau at $2,789,207, 463, and this vast total has been In creased considerably since the date' of the summary, June 30, 1903. With the steady decrease of the national and State debts, both In the gross and per capita, there has been a marked in crja.se In the obligations of cities, towns, parishes and other divisions. At the close of the Civil War the bulk of the nation's indebtedness was a burden of the Federal government and the State, that of 'the former alone being but little short of the total debt as now figured. The actual per capita of the national debt is reduced from more than seventy-nine dollars in 1865 to $11.77 at the date of this accounting, the lowest ever recorded. But to such proportions has the indebtedness of local divisions grown that an addition al $17.66 is chargeable against every man, woman and child In the land. Of the total debt of nearly three bil lion dollars, the debt of the national government, was less than one billion at the date .specified; the State and Territorial debt was $234,314,190; the debt of the counties less than two hun dred millions arm ou scnooi aisirictg around forty-six millions; while the debt of cities, villages, townships and the like footed $1,387,279,560, or nearly as much as all the other forms of in debtedness combined, including the government debt. It is in this form that the nation has been running into debt most rapidly. Indeed, during the, last decade ail other forms have ekker remained about stationary or have actually decreased, while the total debt has increased $760,000,000 through the financial enterprises of cities and lesser civil divisions. The more the merrier, for awhile. The advocates of the municipal owner ship of public utilities want more. Triumph of Intellect. I have a most lntene respect . I always had for Intellect. I wonder, to a great extent, At any rare accomplishment.' I envy those who scan the stars And know how far it is to Mars. Likewise the scientific stiffs Who read Egyptian hieroglyphs.

The chills of age dq nut cool the fighting ardor of a fire-eating duellist like 'M. Rochefort, once reputed the deadliest shot of the second Emplrn, while the late 'M. Cassegnas was Its crack swordman a foilsmnn so pas sionately addicted to hlB weapon that as he once said, his sons In their fenc ing lessons adopted untaught the scientifically correct parries and coun terthrusts by Instinct. M. Rochefort htus done his best to signalize his sep tuagenarian period by one last appear ance "on the ground," and he appears likely to be disappointed. Perhaps the adversary mistrusts that old fighting hand despite the unsteading effects of age. Anyhow, M. Rochefort's seconds cannot find htm "at home." Few men would feel at homo confronted by such an antagorW, pistol in hand. The ad versary Is M. Bunau-Varilla, the well- known newspaper proprietor, who had written a letter containing a passage that M. Rochefort disliked. He sent hig seconds to say so, and they were in formed that M. Bunau-Varllla would not be at home for a week. Nov that the week has expired they have called again, only to be told that M. Varllla away for an indefinite period." And now, as the Irish attorney paid in the once famou.1 farce, the seconds are now left wun "as pretty a challenge as ever was penned, and nobody to give it to." London Globs.
