' "In order to deter boys from smoking cigarettes it was suggested at a meet ing of the education committee of the London County Council that the dia grams of cigarette smokers' handwrit ing which appear in the medical offi cer's report should be enlarged and dis played in schools. When Governor Hoch of Kansas took the oath of office for a second term at Topeka the other day he said in the course of his brief address: "I am growing more and more In the convic tionan old-time conviction that a public office is rather to be borne than that It is a prize to be coveted." He seems to be bearing it cheerfully. Many of the Chinese are so poor that they can't even afford' a Waterbury watch, but it is said that they can tell the time of day by the appearance of a cat's eyes. Th-s pupils of a cat's eyes become gradually narrower toward noon, at which time they are scarcely perceptible lines, drawn perpendicular ly across the eye. After that time the dilation commences again, and at dusk the pupil Is full. An agricultural lecturer In Columbus, Ohio, talked about breeding, and dwelt at length on the Importance of the food that animals eat. He thought it made a great difference with the qualify of the stock. A mischievous friend In the udience posed him for a minute with the Inquiry as to what would happar, if a child In a heathen country were fed on missionaries steadily; whether such 'diet would make it robust physically and Intellectually. Wales has found her Carnegie in the young member of Parliament for Mont gomeryshireDavid Davies. Not only has he given Aberystwyth college a col lection of Soudanese armor, and prom ised -to become responsible for $115,000, the cost of new laboratories at the col lege, but in addition to this he has set aside $150,000 for ministerial education In connection with the Welsh Calvlnis tlo denomination, to which he belongs.

Fishermen around the Isle of Wight coast ?jmplaln of the serious j'.a.nrag done to the lobster-fishing In dustry by the practice of the artillery , at local forts and by his majesty's uhlps firing at targets in the sea. Rep resentation was recently made on the matter to the southern sea fisheries dis trict committee, which communicated with the Admiralty and military au thorities. In future notice is to be giv en at Sandown of all firing practices, and the fishermen are urged to use larger buoys in order to give masters of vessels a better chance of avoiding them and lessening the probability of causing damage. Advance sheets of the Official Cath olic Directory show that the Catholic population of the United States is now 13,089,353, an increase of 437,309 over the previous year. .The total number of Catholic clergymen Is 15,093, an increase of 609. During 1906 there were 334 new Catholio churches established, making a total of 12,148.

Including our island posses sions, there are 20,986,266 Catholics un der the United States flag. "You must admit that our friend has the. courage of his convictions," said one statesman.

"May we have the pleasure of your company this evening, colonel?" she asked. The colonel drew himself up haughtily and replied, with every evi dence of offended dignity; "Madam, I command a regiment." Kansas City Independent, observation and expression. Critics of our public school systems, including the one with which New Ha ven is blessed, have said that they do not encourage either observation or ex pression in the children. The next time such a critic says anything like that about the New Haven school system take this out of "your pocket and read it to him. The following composition was written by a pupil in one of New Haven's public schools: "New Haven is a very educational city. It has a university, which contains a great many stuffed animals and other beau tiful things." Any lack of acute observation or ac curate and adequate expression here? Could the most observing and the most expressive among us have done any better? The Chamber of Commerce and Yale will do well to appropriate for advertising purposes this descrip tion of New Haven and Yale. New Haven is truly ail educational city, and Yale does contain a great many stuffed animals and other beautiful things. HE GOT HIS PIANO. Law is sometimes interesting. For instance, In a Massachusetts case which involved a rented piano, a house and some people. A piano rented from the plaintiff was, because of its size, moved into a building by a tenant through a window which had been enlarged for the purpose, with the permission of the landlord, the understanding being that permission to remove it in the same way would be given when desired. Upon the expiration of the lease the landlord refused to permit the plaintiff to enlarge the window, but Insisted that he remove tho piano. Upon the seeking of the aid of a court of equity to compel the landlord to permit the removal of the piano it was contended that plaintiff had an adequate remedy at law, but the court pointed out that relief by replevin would be impossible, as the officer would have no power which the plaintiff did not have to se cure the piano's removal; further, that the plaintiff could not maintain conver sion, since the landlord did not set up any adverse title, but adm'itted plain tiff's ownership. Though the landlord had made no promise to the plaintiff that the piano might be removed as it had been brought In, the court decided that the promise made to the tenant entitled the plaintiff to a decree allow ing him to remove the piano upon giv ing sufficient security. This looks reasonable and just, more reasonable and just than the landlord was. WILL BACK AO FURTHER OVT. Tha President promptly backed out of the untenable part of hl's position in the Brownsville matter, f but he isn't going to back any further just now. Ha believes that Senators erred who questioned his legal right to discharge the enlisted men of the Twenty-fifth infantry; that this was a subject wholly outside the province of the Sen ate, but that, his authority having been so questioned, the honorable and manly course 'to pursue will be to adopt the Blackburn amendment, which is a concise and logical excres- sion of the views set forth by Senators Lodge, Spooner, Knox, 'Heyburn and others. Nor dees the fact that the amendment emanates from a Demo cratic source appeal to the Presi dent as constituting in any sense a valid objection. He feels that the Brownsville affair in the Senate Is no creature of his, but he does feel that, since Senator Foraker has seen fit, in open debate, to question his authority t- dismiss certain members of the Twenty-fifth infantry, his friends in the Senate cannot refuse to adopt the words: "Without questioning or deny ing the legal right of the President to dismiss enlisted men from the army of the United States," which Is the text of the Blackburn amendment. So we shall soon see who is for and who is against the President. And It is probable that when the line-up real ly 'comes hf will be found to have more friends in the Senate than some have thought, or, at least, hoped. THE GREAT LITTLE JAPANESE. The Japanese continue to hold their own and get more, and no wonder. A correspondent of the Paris Temps, writing from Seoul, gives an en thusiastic description of the mass of Japanese emigrants now thronging into Korea as colonists. As a noteworthy characteristic of this rush to a new country, he, comments upon the ab sence of the selfishness and brutality which western peoples are wont to exhibit on such occasions. In spite of the' Inevitable crush and crowding, every one, he says, remains polite and helpful, particularly to the women. Although unknown to each other, a tacit bond of union . seems to be estab lished between them. The individual ity of cacti is subordinated to the com mon purpose, existing between them. They seem to feel that they are not a body of single Japanese leaving their native land, but a small part of "Great Japan," and that it is of im portance that the new settlements should be strong and prosper. The characteristic and admirable union and discipline which had a large share in the Japanese success In the last war is again manifested, and will, in the opinion of the correspondent, insure the success of the little colonies that are being established along the new railroad in Korea and Manchuria. Three hundred such passengers are daily conveyed across the straits by two modern steamships, which thus connect the Japanese railroad .system with the new Korean line. Thanks to this new railroad from Fusan to Seoul, the journey between the Japanese and Korean capitals ony occupies three day. The Organist. I wonder how the organist Can do so manv things; He's getting ready lung before The choir stands up and sings; He's pressing buttons, pushing stops; He's pulling here and there, And testing all the working parts While listening to the prayer. He runs a mighty big machine, It's full of tunny things A rmiss of boxes, pipes and tubes, And sticks and slats and strings; There's little whistles for accent, And rows and rows and rows; I'll bet there's twenty miles of tubes As large as garden hose. There's scores as round as stove pipes! and There's lots so big and wide That several little boys I know Could play around inside; From little bits of piccolos That hardly make a toot, There's every size up to the great Big elevator chute. The organist knows every one And how they ought to go; He makes them rumble like a storm, Or plays them sweet and low; At times you think them very near At times they're soaring high, Like angel voices singing far Off somewhere In the sky. For he can take this structure that's As. big as any house , And m&ke it squeak so softly as A tiny little mouse; And then he'll Jerk out something with . . ' A movement of the hand. And. make you think you're listening to A military band. He plays it with his Angers and He plays it with his toes, And if he really wanted to He'd play it with his nose; He's sliding up and down the bench, He's working with his knees; He's danc'ng round with both his feet As lively as you please. I always like to take a seat Where I can see him go; He's better than a sermon, and He does me good, I know. I like the life and movement, and I like to hear him play; He, is the most exciting thing In town on Sabbath day. G. W. S. in Waterbury American. si jv.vr. Counsel 'M'lud, the prisoner is an orphan.

Edward MacDowell at the prime of life left with his delicate, highly or ganized brain a poor broken instru ment. We Americans cannot escape our share of resuonsiblllty for that tragic tacit. America is rich In ma terial possessions, but It has no art istic geniuses to spare; yet America has let such a man as MacDowell work himself Into a final dumbness. It is not creditable to us. We have made the composer of that once popu lar but now forgotten ditty, "After the Ball," rich so it is reported but we have been content to see the com poser of the "Indian Suite," the "Sonata Tragica," "Hamlet and Ophe lia," the "Keltic Sonata," the ''Sea Pieces," supplement his exacting but unprofitable labor of composition with the very moderately remunerative routine of the classroom for the sake of a living. Even this compensation he was not permitted to receive to the end. As Dr. van Dyke has said, "America was proud of MacDowell, and paid him in praise abundantly but not much in money." Now that his fertile brain, his one resource, has failed him, he must be dependent up on others for his comfort to the end. It is but poor reparation that we can make; we can offer it, however, by responding to the appeal for contri butions to the Edward MacDowell Fund of the Mendelssohn Glee Club.

STUDLEY, Judge. This fund will be administered for two purposes; first and primarily, the sup port of Edward MacDowell; second, the perpetuation of his name In some fitting manner. In considering plans for the second purpose, the committee in charge has decided "to adhere, so far as possible, to Mr. MacDowell's own plan for devoting the property which has for yeai's been the home of Mr. and Mrs. MacDowell, at Petcr boro, New Hampshire, to the purposes which he had most at heart." His hope, which It will thus be possible to realize, was, the committ2e states, "to make of this place a resting spot for students In all arts, where quiet work and close companionship could be had a modest sum being paid during residence In order to clear it of a possible accusation of Its being a charitable institution." A few months ago there was organized the Mac Dowell Club of New York City, for the purpose of promoting the artistic Ideals which Mr. MacDowell has . by word and practice upheld. , To this club the property in Peterboro has been offered, and the cordial co-opera tion of the club in ,the plan has been secured. The appeal on behalf of this fund has been signed by men con spicuous in various activities; such public men as Mr. Cleveland, Mr. Cho ate, Mr. Cortelyou, Mr. Jerome; such financial and industrial leaders "as Andrew Carnegie, J. Pierpont Morgan, Jacob H. Schlff; such philanthropic amlj educational leaders as, Sethi Low, Robert C. Ogden, and Heiiry L. Hlg glnson; and Composers a.i Arthur Foote,. Horatio Parker, , Victor Her bert, F. S. Converse, and Charles Loeffler, such ; conductors as Emil Paur, of the.-, Pittsburg Orchestra, Frederick A. Stock, of the Chicago Orchestra, Frank Damrosch, of New York, and B. J. Larfg, of Boston; sucH clergymen as Dr. Henry van Dyke and Bishop Potter; and a number of the best-known musical critics. This list of names shows not only how thoroughly this plan Is Indorsed by men of standing, but also how widely the music of Edward MacDowell is appreciated in his own country.
