Everyone has been to work to show why it is that the army is deteriorat ing, and the cry of more pay resounds from one end of the continent to the other. That is not the trouble. The difficulty is way down deeper than that.

This medicine made from native roots and herbs contains no narcotics or other harmful drugs and today holds the record for the largest number' of actual cures of female diseases of any medicine the world has ever known, and thousands of voluntary testimonials are on file in the laboratory at Lvhn, Mass., which testify to its wonderful value. Mrs. 0. E. Fink, of Carnegie, Pa., writes: Dear Mrs. Pinkham: "I wish every suffering woman would take Lydia E. Plnkhaia's Vegetable Compound and write to you for advice.

There, is an ambition to ex cel and win through merit, which la wholesome but not so the ambition to get something by fair means or by foul. Old officers declare that In the past a large proportion of the soldiers enlisted for- a lifetime the re-enllst-ment was a mere pro forma thing. It is too much the rule that the sol dier of the present enlists as floes the volunteer soldier to fight primarily to see how sdldier feels to get out of doing things that become a soldier and there you are. Army critics Insist that the officer Is beginning to be that way, too, and there is un doubtedly too much talk among offi cers as to how to get a brigadier gen eralship; next how to get a staff de tail how to get on the general staff how to get a special detail.

He was proud of ma superior, uompiamt Is made that promotion from the ranks has turn. ed the head of many hen-coms In the army, who feel that they are better than their officers In a multitude of ways far better looking in many in stances, more soldierly looking be cause they are selected by their com pany oiticers for such qualifications, Whereas some of the officers who have been put into the army are a sight to beheld, and their men are ashamed of them. Beyond all this, where is the social distinction or superiority of the one over the other? ' In the ranks we find the same ele ment of strife for something that each one has not,' and the more one gets the more he wants, and there Is no peace. The worst of the business Is that nothing is suggested to be done that can be done that will stay the growing discontent Is it not possi ble that the more pay and the high er clas3 man you get for an ordin ary soldier's Job the greater will be his demands, and demands mean in subordination, and insubordination means lack of discipline, and when there is no discipline there's a mob. Another radical trouble. The army Is full of boys, and boys are not men, and they lack the sense of responsi bility. These are some of the things In the army it is difficult to see how we are to get rid of. Perhaps more pay will attract a higher grade of men, and perhaps, too, In that case a stop may be put to enlisting men un der twenty-five tffat would help matters. It is the only thing In sight we can do. But we can never hope to get back again to1 the old or der of things, where it was hard to find in the army the type of soldier who Is too big for his boots, br whose head Is too big for his hat. COAL- BARGE RAISED. Cargo of Wild West, Which Sunk Off Breakwater, Saved. The barge Wild West, loaded with COO tons of coal, which sank near the west breakwater during a gale Tues day night, was raised Saturday, and towed up the harbor off Long wharf, where the water Is now being pumped out of the craft. The work of raising the barge was accomplished by the monster wreck ing derrick Monarch, owned by the Merritt & Ch'Jpman company of Now York. Chains were placed under the barge by a diver, who went down in thirty feet of water, and when this was done the barge was lifted from the bottom of the sound by the powerful wrecking derrick. Nearly the entire cargo of coal in the Wild West was saved. ANOTHER TRttJMPn. (From the Springfield Republican.) . So far as can be dliScerned, there is no living creature left In the United States, man, woman, child or beast of the forest and field, that opposes the scheme of maklnf seaports ont of St. Louis and Chicago, hot to mention Innumerable river towns and cities between Cairo and New Orleans. This is another triumph for Mr. Roosevelt. FRENCH PRIESTS WIO Ml ADOPTED TRADES Great Changes the Separa tion Law Has Produced. PRIESTS HARDiAT WORK Farming, Gardening, Bee keeping, Watchmaking, and Decorating. 1 IVhile discussion was rife, ' concern ing ways to make up for the loss of stipends occasioned by the Separa tion law, a large number of French priests bravely took matters Into their own hands and set about sup porting themselves by adopting trades. Here we had a wholly new conception of the sacerdotal life, so new that it aroused general amazement.- To some, the priest admin istrator of the sacraments, shepherd of human souls, intermediary be tween heaven find earth seemed; forbidden to descend -from the serene heights whore his mission placed him. To others, because ot the attitude of mind fixed by the Concordat a hun dred years ago, he was an official and the stopping of his pay left him an official still; so whether from die point of view of respect or from the point of view of administrative posi tivism, nobody dared face the hypo thesis of an alliance of the priesthood with professional and remunerative labor. And yet, long before there was talk of separation, there were priests who i followed trades and professions. Among the most deservedly famous of these precursors, I should mention the Chanolne Brlsacler who must be the dean of ecclesiastical labor, for he began' his career as an architect fif teen years ago. A pupil of the Tours seminary, he was enabled to share the archaeological researches ot the learned Abbe (since Chanolne) Bour- asse, and warred against the vandal- Ism of those who were ' 'restoring" the churches. He found In the Judici ous employment of brick vaulting a way to repair the old temples econ omically and got his system introduce ed In spite of administrative , oppose tlon. 1 .. ... , I might also cite rne Abbe Choy-. er of Angers, a sculptor of great tal ent, to whom we owe, among other works, the beautiful altar-piece of La Salette; Pere BenJ, likewise a sculp tor, who founded a flourishing school at Poltle'rsMhe Abbe Mlgne, , whose print-shop has been of great service to the clergy; Dr. Leeoq, cure of Cu senler, whcse reputation as a physU clan was widespread; the Abbe VI- vet, director of the Bcauvals School of Agriculture, an eminent electrician; ' and many, others, such as the Abbe Van Hollebeck, cure , of Saint Paul-lez-BeauvaW an excellent painted, or the Abbe Clavel, cure of Pollenas, 4 superb watchmaker. The present movement had its spor adic beginnings in the domain Of personal anxiety for the future. At the same time, the press exploited the lde. Then it found its theorist and exponent; $he, Abbe Louis Ballu wrote a booTt on "The Trades Availa ble for the' Priests of Tomorrow," In which he .examines the difficulties that beset them, ,am makes out a program of laeeTdotal labor. He argues th&i the Object is not to amass a fortune but to earn a quarter of a day's wflgai, since the priest has no family to support. Hence the priest's labor affords no alarming competition with that of other workers. v The Abbe Ballu reviews the tradeB he regards as possible of adoption first agriculture in the form of spe cialized cultures and the production of seeds; also of flowers, for essence making, asparagus, and grapes for the table. Kltchen-gftrdenlng has its place, too, and so might also the rais ing of medicinal plants. As a cor ollary, there is the distillation of ma terials for perfumery, the raising of silkworms, and finally bee-keeping. Then come carpentry, sculpture, and watchmaking. "La petite mecnnlque" offers great resources; with the de velopment of cycling and motoring, a little shop will do for repairing. The making of Jewelry, engraving metals, and mosaic worlt are crafts that re quire no staff of helpers and no com plicated outfit. So with bookbinding, weaving, Illuminating, the making of druggists' specialties, baking, color ing, and embroidery especially that of chasubles and church ornaments. Even high art may be attempted. And the Abbes Leroux, Chassignol, and Ballu have organized the Alli ance Of Workman Priests. To Join it you must be a French priest and work With your hands from five hours a week to five hours a day. In no case do the workers cut down their regular routine as servants of the church. They regard manual labor as "an element of the apostolate and at the same time a means of econom ic emancipation." M.' Ballu has turn typesetter; the Abbe Leroux raises vegetables The Alliance has prospered magnifi cently from the very outset, and. day by day it grows. It publishes a monthly magazine, printed by nuns, while the rest of the work is done by priest.3. Its editor writes me: "We have subscribers In all the depart ments and fifty outside France; Eng lishmen, Americans and Germans are Interested In the Alliance of Work men Priests, and our eo-operatlve ef forts in behalf of the French clergy. Comrades In f China and Australia show lively sympathy with our under taking, which, thank God, is a com plete success! This month we have gained a thousand new subscribers." The good humor and the confidence that characterize this letter are to be found in all those I have received while gathering material for this ar ticle. The Abbe Frederic Pellssler, cure of Vacheres, writes: "There is no dull season In my business. I repair clocks, sewing machines, watches, locks, reaping machines, threshing machines, children's toys, etc. I bind books. The artttclerlcals respect and employ nie. I charge them less, so as to prove that the priest is a good fellow. Often. I go out to work by the day, taking my meals at my em ployers' hohse. And often I see those for v)hom I have worked at tending mass the following Sunday." The writer of this letter has invented a reading desk which holds the book open while allowing the pages to be turned, an improved clarlnette, vari ous improved tools for carpentry, and a cheap but invaluable forge.' The Abbe Bozon was an army chaplain at Porquerolles. He sup ports himself as an optician and clockmaker. "My parlor is my shop," says he, "and if you would know about my private apartments, why, I lodge in the sacristy, since I can no longer pay rent in the city." Quite varied are the Industries of the Abbe Paller at Vl)lebussieres. He raises hares, magnificent hares, with terrible names "le Belier Francais," "le Gros Normand," "le Geant des Flandres." Also he entertains im mense snails in his garden. In ad dition, he has started an enterprise which he calls "le Sou des mlettes," and' which he thus defines: "From cellar to garret, as you pass throUgTi the chambers, salons, and. mansards of some house, what hundreds and thousands of worn-out objects, which are in the. way, absolutely useless and of no present value! Destroy none of them. Send them all to the 'Sou des mlettes' old Stamp3, old paper, wrecks of books, newspapers, chrom os, paper boxes, old clothes, old iron, old bottles, old umbrellas and canes, the Sou des miettes' will utilize them all." The cure of 'Bailly-Romalnvllllers has established a model poultry yard in his garden, and thereby supple ments hi3 income as a fruit-grower and bee-keeper. He also raises An gora hares, whose hair periodically pulled out by hand without occasion ing the animals the slightest discom fort sells at a high price. In 1900 this priest took care of a smallpox patient and contracted the terrible disease. For this the Bishop of Ml- aux authorized him to wear a beard In order to conceal to that extent, the disfigurement which, considering the circumstances, was an honor to the priest. - Tho Abbe Van Hollenbeck, cure of Salnt-Paul-lez-Beauvais, Is a talented painter, who exhibits at the Salon and has won distinction there. He was preparing to leave his presbytery when the city government, though intensely Socialistic,' addressed him In these terms: "Don't leave, mon sieur le cure; we can find a way to manage. Not only shall we refrain from taking away your ancient pres bytery, but we . are going to give you a now one also, with a beautiful stu dio. Only, In exchange, you are to decorate our mairle." And the thing was done. , ' . The Abbe Metals, cure of . Salnte- Sollne, writes: "Though mine is a very poor parish and in part composed of Protestants, I have succeeded thanks to my agricultural work, not only in making sure of my daily bread, but also in founding certain enterprises of which It is not my place to speak. This energetic priest has started a magazine for bee-keepera, and even organized them Into associations with branches? in many provinces of Frane. v ? - The Abbe Lecomte, at present cure of Montgivray, was cure of Salnt- Plantalre In a country where the vine was represented only by a few random specimens, clinging to trees in gar dens. He felt thai vine-growing might adapt itself to the conditions of the district Despite objections and oposltlon, he stuck to his idea, and In 1904 was able to show his friends and . neighbors perfectly ripened grapes from his own vines. "I left Salnt-Plantalre three years ago," he says, "'handing' over my experiment station to my successor. At Montglv- ray I found excallent land, and to my Innovations in horticulture. I began last year with a ne sort of potato; next year I shall try the American salsify. Later I shall experiment With new strawberry plants, which I am now studying. But the really new thing here Is that the people are see ing the cure trying to make himself self-suporting and working In the open fields. I have not lacked en couragement nor expressions of sym pathythough they are sometimes mixed with criticisms and harsh words. The criticisms, the left-handed compliments, and tho Insults I ac cept them without replying, convinced that I am in the right and sustained by the encouragement of my bishop, who has long urged us to earn our own living and set an example of practical and constant industry." The Abbe Clavel, cure of Pollenas, has won a reputation as a clockmak er, his work is in great demand, and the people respect not only his skill but his "industrial conscience." Tho Abbe Girard, at Clesse, endowed with rare manual dexterity, has become a carpenter. The Abbe Carteau, euro of Les Magnilo-Reignlers, is a carver of wood and stone, a modeler a moulder and an engraver. He makes beautiful etchings and achieves the artistic restoration of precious wood carvings and ancient sculptures. His talent finds remunerative employment In the chateaux round about. The Abbe Couturaud, apostolic mis sionary and a pupil of the painter Harplgnies, has been a member of the riooiete des Artistes Francais since 1900. He has a curious studio on the seashore at Royan-Pontaillac. More over, he ha3 been occupied since 1904 In the Longchamps factory upon re searches in ceramic and plaster dec orations. He exhibited his faiences at the Salon des Artistes Francais in 1906. The Abbe Fabre at La Salve tat, has Invented an "inviolable" en velope, which he is beginning to man ufacture in quantity. The Abbe Brault, cure of Noizay, prints superb picture-postcards. The Abbe Priol, at Tahon, manufactures candles and also watch-light wicks for sanctuaries. He has found a new way of making these latter, and he makes all his al tars himself upon a model he has In vented. Finally, as a conclusion to the list, we find the cure of W mak ing hair postiches 1 I might go oh almost Indefinitely with this review of priestly labor. But the brief summation I have given Is aufflcteat to demonstrate th extreme variety of the lines of activity select ed by the workman priests, and the spirit of Initiative they have display ;d.
