Let Us Pause Ere It is Too Late-We Are Ap proaching a Maelstrom of Destruction Through Abandonment of the Principles of Our Great Statesmen. E. E. ('rainlall in Los Angeles (Cat.) Heralil. Matters of American—international, internal and external—policy, are to day receiving much attention at the hands of European cabinets and diplo mats. Apparently, it seems, that we are to be given to understand hv all Europe that since our entrance into, and interference with, the affairs of the old world we have practically nul lified the Monroe doctrine. Secretary Hoot and Senator Lodge's recnt ut terances and declarations for an ag gressive Monroe doctrine has brought forward much comment, some indeed severe, throughout Europe. A late edition of the London Spectator, in ijuite a forceful editorial, savs: '• The American who takes the trouble to look the facts in the face cannot fail to see that the doctrine cannot he sup ported on tall talk. America must not imagine that if she ever gets into a serious controversy with a great con tinental power she will he treated as Lord Salisbury, with fuli consent of the nation, treated her. Here we should dread a victory over America, supposing we were able to obtain it, only one degree less than defeat. But it is idle to suppose that the continen tal powers, Germany, for instance, would take such things into consider ation. Granted she wanted to in fringe upon the Monroe doctrine, Ger many would simply consider whether America had physical power to main tain it. If she had not, America's his torical cluims would not be held to be worth a straw." The article runs along very glibly in the above strain, and says that no power would dream of invading America but Germany, then again says: " For instance, the latter country might get into a dispute with Brazil and prepare to occupy its territory. If America should wish to enforce the Monroe doctrine she must be able to destroy the German fleet. Her present fleet, officers and men, are as good as possible. They have superiors nowhere, and equals only in the sister navy of Great Britain. But there are too few of them." Again says this article: "Clearly, if, while Germany is building ships, America is doing little or nothing" (except with an army of 65,000 to 75,000, being provided lor 7,000 miles away from home trying to subdue a few hundred poorly clad, half-starved, almost un armed representatives of a people struggling for their liberty). America will not be in a position to fetter Ger many's will or to tell her that she shall not make what terms she likes with the South American powers." The paper insists on reiterating the authenticity of former articles dealing with Germany's activity in South America, and says that if America sticks to the Monroe doctrine and yet refuses to prepare, there is in store for America great humiliation. But it disclaims all the way through any in tention to create alarmist views or to make any ill blood between America and Germany. But there is still an underlying current of apparent satis faction in the belief that the Monroe doctrine is yet to be cast to the winds, and not at the instance or command of Great Britain. Then come press dispatches from Paris sayiDg Le Pa trie, an afternoon paper, claims to have discovered the real reason for Germany's friendly attitude towards Great Britain in her disastrous results in South Africa. Continuing, the Patrie recalls the friction caused by tlie action of the German naval commander Admiral Diedrichs, at Manila, and affirms that the opposition of the United States to £mperor William's dream of founding a greater Germany in Brazil and Ar gentina is responsible for the coldness in the relations between the two coun tries. It concludes: " War between America and Ger many is, therefore, not impossible in the near future, and it is in view of this war, and not with hostile inten tions towards England, that Germany is making unheardof efforts to iucrease her navy. In the interval the sole aim of German policy is to prevent an Anglo-American alliance. There is the secret of the Emperor's attitude, for if England believed in a coalition of the powers against her she would not hesitate to conclude a Yankee al liance. The Emperor is striving to appear at least devoted to England in order to more surely realize his dream and make Brazil and Argeutina future dependencies of the German empire." I claim, neither for myself, nor for any one among my ancestors, the great powers of prophecy. But when I read and study the prophetic utter ances of America's patriots, though "ITew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they IVlay." dead, yet speaking in language that will live throughout all time, I cannot hut believe and prophesy that the time is coming to the children of to day, when, on reaching manhood's es tate, they will have ample cause to curse the present McKinley adminis tration. If not sutlicient cause to curse the existing administration, they will have far more than ample cause to anathematize, not only the admin istration, but those who will be guilty of again placing and sustaining it in power. If the policies of government, as determined by this administration, are to be followed to a consummation this decade, perhaps the next, may not he much aH'ccted, but the future, less than two generations removed, will be the sufferer, and with many anil great chances that this country will have forever lost its pow< r and greatness as a nation, 'this is not. pessimistically written, but from con clusions drawn after such readings as Washington's farewell address, Jeffer- son's precepts and principles, Jackson and Monroe's doctrines, lleTocqne villc's unprejudiced warning, and Lin coln's fear and lieinbling for the fu ture. I would not for a moment question the patriotism or integrity of our Ger man-Aim rirun citizens. But they are of human mould, and have the fail ings and attachments of human kind. Knowing their attachment to the Fatheriand, and realizing that the Fatherland is overcrowding, I am of the opinion that they would not ar dently support our contention for the Monroe doctrine should Germany seek relief in far away South Ameri can colonization, more cs|iccially since this administration has so ruthlessly cast it to the four winds. If we have the right to create and maintain colo nies in the eastern hemisphere, has not the old world the same right and privilege to do likewise in the western? If we have the right to maintain pos sessions in Asia gained by conquest or purchase, under what law, human or divine, can we support our self-ap pointed authority against Europe or Asia to prevent them from creating and maintaining possessions in this hemispnere? The only code of which I can conceive would be the law of might sustained by blood and treasure. The amount of blood and treasure that would be required to reinstate and sustain such doctrines, after we, by our own acts, had destroyed them, would be appalling to human kind. We have 2,000 miles of Atlantic, 1,500 miles of Gulf of Mexico, and 1,500 miles of Pacific seacost unprotected. Add to this the islands of Cuba and Puerto Rico on the Atlantic, and the Hawaiian and Philippine archipelagos on the Pacific side—all unprotected and at the mercy of a hostile nation, and further yet, the administration, seemingly eager for the privilege, at the command of Great Britain, stands ready to build an isthmian canal and leave it open, without guard or pro tection, to the uses of any nation at war with us. In a war with a nation like Germany or France, while we are exerting every endeavor to protect our seacoast, we would be compelled, in great humiliation, to see our island possessions melt Away like snow under a summer's sun, aud our canal used as a channel for our further humiliation, if not destruction. At such a time should a few hundred of the ten mil lions of inhabitants of the Philippine islands rise in insurrection, it would require our entire standing army to suppress them and our entire navy to protect the islands and the army. And what, I pray you, would become of the balance of us? Thinner Than Tissue. Goldbeaters, by hammering, can reduce gold leaves so thin that 282,- 000 must be laid upon each other to •produce the thickness of an inch, yet each leaf is so perfect and free from holes that one of them laid upon any surface, as in gilding, gives the ap pearance of solid gold. They are so thin that if formed into a book 1,500 would only occupy the space of a single leaf of common paper, and an octavo volume of an inch thick would have as many pages as the books of a well-stocked library of 1,500 volumes, with 400 pages in each. Freaks in the Plant World. There is a plant in Jamaica called the life plant, because it seems almost impossible to kill it. When a leaf is cut off' and hung up by a string it sends out white, threadlike roots, gathers moisture from the air and be gins to grow new leaves. In South America is a flower which can only be seen when the wind is blowing. The plant belongs to the cactus family and when the wind blows a number of beautiful flowers protrude from little lumps on the stalk.

Hags That Belong Exclusively to the Na tion's Executive. New York Times. The flag outfit of a United States naval vessel is so elaborate that the : hit of blue hunting hearing the arms lof the United States, though seldom j seen in its place at the main, would hardly attract passing attention, yet it would indicate the presence aboard of the President of the nation, and tlio ceremony of hoisting it would impress one. Amid a ruffle of drums, flourishes of bugles, the national air by the band and the firing of a national salute the President's flag is run up at the main whenever the chief executive of the na tion sets foot aboard a ship of the navy. This ceremony, which has been little used except when official functions wore frequent, while Wil liam C. Whitney was Secretary of the navy, is of somewhat recent origin, dating from Aug. 19, 1882, when Wil liam G. Chandler, Secretary of the Navy, issued the order adding the President's Hag to the paraphernalia of the navy. Still more recent is the ceremonial indication of the presence of the Presi dent at a military camp or army post. At the outbreak of the war with Spain, Frederick 1). Owen, while pre pui ing some maps for the warroom in the white house, recalled a remark of his chief, Colonel Theodore A. Bing ham, that the President had no army tlug. He sketched a design for such a flag ou a map of the Philippine group which lie had just completed and was requested to submit the design iu colors. It met the approval of General Miles, Secretary Alger and the Presi dent and an order was issued making it the official army flag of the Presi dent, the complement of his naval flag. This was in March, 1898, and the first flag made from the design was first used upon the occasion of the visit of President McKinley to the peace jubilee iu Chicago. The number of the original States of the union figures in the symbolism of the President's army flag. Its field is thirteen feet long, the hoist being eight feet, and thirteen stars in constellation, grouped as though breaking through clouds, represent national emergence from war to peace. The cngle holds an olive branch of thirteen leaves in his beak, with thir teen fruits iu his left talon and thir teen arrows in his right. Besides this the national legend, " E Pluribus Unum," emblazoned on the flag, has thirteen letters, and the general order of the army that gave the standard its official status was No. 13, issued March 28, 1898. Forty-live whi'e stars, one for each State, surround and protect the large central star, which indicates the executive, uine stars being placed in each of the five re-entering angles of the large star. There is also a white star in each corner of the field. The ground of the flag is scarlet, and the center of the large star is blue and contains the official coat or arms of the Uuited States of department of State design. The original army Hag of the Presi dent is a magnificent specimen of needlework, in silk and gold. It is preserved, encased in glass, in the executivo mansion at Washington. The flags actually used in the army when the President is present as com mander in chief of the nation's land forces are just one-half the size of the original flag and are made of bunting. WHERE WOMEN HAVE RIGHTS. Rank In the South Sea Islands Descends There are many social incongruities among the natives of the South Sea islands that are little known to peo ple hereabouts. Miss Theodora Cros by, who spent some time among these people, writes interestingly of their customs. The women, she says, are not particular about clothing their bodies—indeed, seldom wear any cov ering above the waist unless ypu dig nify string upon string of beads, but tons and shells as such; to show the ankles, however, is most immodest. The children, both girls and boys, run nbout absolutely nude or at most with a fringe about their waists, but when once a girl is put on the marriageable list her mat skirt must reach so low that her ankles will not be exposed. Marital engagements are made by parents or friends, generally on the side of the woman, but quite often by both parties. As among the Eskimos and some other people, there is no wedding ceremony, though the groom sometimes throws a piece of kapa about the bride and a nuptial feast is spread. Marriage tenure is very un certain, depending on the will of the husband. But while such a relation lasts there is no such thing as infidel ity on either side. The descent of rank through the fe male line gives the women a place of importance which it is hard at first to Through the Feminine Line. understand, realizing the inescapable social degradation of the sex. As a queen or regent she may have almost unlimited power, but she cannot eat even with the humblest man. A wo man must not eat of the food prepared in tlio same oven as a man's nor of many viands superstitiously reserved for the male sex. At birth slio is more unwelcomed than her brother and more liablo to be thrust alive iuto the grave. As a child she must eat no food that has chanced to touch her father's dish. As a wife she is subject to her husband's will and is cast off when no longer pleasing. Curiously enough, however, the men cook the food, while on many of the islands the womeu accompany their husbands to battle. A MATTER OF LOCATION Bank President Did Not Want All His Employes Together. Many and varied reasons have been advanced from time to time to explaiu why people could not have the jobs they sought, but the reason advanced by a hank president for not hiring a young man who came well recom mended to him lately was a nov elty. It happens that not only the president, but the cashier, his assist ant, half a dozen tellers and other of ficials and employes of the hank live iu the suburbs along the Northwestern railroad. Many of them live in one town—enough to form a little club ( and the rest are scattered along the right of way from Clybourn Junction to Winnetka. When the young man came in with his application and his letters of rec ommendation the president looked them over and seemed favorably im pressed. Then he asked the applicant where his home was. "Glencoe," said the young man proudly. There is a world of respect ability suggested by the very word. "What?" asked the president, "an other one? I'm afraid that settles it. We can't have all the employes of this bank living on one railroad. Sup pose the Northwestern were snowed up some morning and wc were all blocked. There would be no one to open up the bank and begin business. You'll have to move to some other part of town or I can't pass on this fa vorably." And the young man pulled up stakes and located iu Woodlawn. SILK CHEAPER THAN ABRIDGE. Train Load of Fabrics Risked to Keep a Rail way Bridge Intact. Birmingham Age-Herald. "At Harper's Ferry on one occasion the flood in the I'otomac was so great that it threatened the destruction of the costly railroad bridge, which was seen to shake in its unsteadiness," said former Governor Thomas G. Jones. "When everybody present was looking each moment to see the bridge go down President John W. Garrett of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad arrived upon the ecene. Ap preciating the necessity of instant ac tion, he gave an abrupt order for a loaded train of freight cars standing on a side track to be run with the lo comotive on the bridge and kept there. " 'But, Mr. Garrett, that is a train load of silk,' said the local superinten dent. "' I don't care; run out the cars!" commanded the great master of rail roads. 'lt would be easier to pay for the silk than to build a new bridge.' "The 'silk train' was run 011 to the bridge and the structure was saved. The ailk was being sent by rail across the continent from tSau Francisco, at which port it had been received from China and Japan. Garrett was a grent man—one of the greatest of those who have aided in the material development of America. In emer gencies he was very resourceful, as was demonstrated in perhaps a small way by the Harper's Ferry incident." First Folding Bed Patent. The inventor of the folding bed was one James A. Johnston, a Western man, to whom patent No. 17,281 was granted on May 12,1857. No provi sion was made in the bed for the stor ing of the mattress, pillows and bed clothes, as is common in the folding bed of to-day. Also unlike the mod ern contrivance, which when folded resembled a bureau, chiffonier or other similar piece of furniture, the folding bed patented by Johnston made 110 pretense of looking like anything other than just what it was. A com pany manufactured the Johnston patent and it had quite a vogue in its day. Little by little improvements were made on the bed, and within the past score of years the piece of furni ture known to-day was evolved, and there are several hundreds of varieties patented.

Nannie Azbell of Los Angeles, Cal., is one of the few young women who have made a success in life while wearing the habiliments of the oppo site sex. A year ago she was in sore straits. She was in need of work by means of which to cam her daily bread, but mulling offered. In her ex tremity she donned male attire and took a position in a poolroom. She took the role of a boy admirably. She never smoked or drank or swore or gambled, but yet she never aroused any suspicion that she was other than what she appeared to be. She was as keen as a needle at business, always wore a neat white coat and polished the billiard balls with tiieless assidu ity. She seemed to be the right boy in the right place. The probability is that she would never have been found out if she had not voluntarily changed her clothing. She ouly did this when she had a good opportunity to tuke a situation as a woman. Before she made the change, however, she was heartily sick of appearing as a man, however successful she was. It was about a year ago that the proprietor of a poolroom in LO9 Ange les was approached by a diffident, bashful youth, who asked for employ ment. Apparently he was about 18 years old, rather undersized for his years, and with a beardless face and frail physique that iudicated a lack of experience with the hard manual la bor of the shops or fields. The resort was in the midst of the district given over largely to the gamblers and the lower classes of the city's population' and where it is not regarded as partic ularly good form to ask for references. A boy was needed to assist the proprie tor about the place and the applicant was engaged. "George" was the name the lad gave. Where George lived, how he speut his spare hours or his last name were unknown even to his employer. Confidences were neither offered nor invited. The work was done satisfac tory and that sufficed. Tlte transition from boy to woman came about through the poolroom where she was employed changing hands. The new owner put a young man of his own choosing in charge and "George" was discharged. The situation had been profitable, if not the most agreeable, and with a com fortable sum saved the cessation of employment was not a disaster. It was probably six weeks later that a young man who had frequented the pool room went into a Spring street restaurant. He there recognized the waitress who attended to his wants as the " George" he used to see in the other resort. He learned her story and is using his influence to advance her interests, witli every prospect of success. LEFT-HANDED SUPERSTITIONS. Wise Obs ervition of One Who Seems to Observe Things. " When you see a man scratch his left leg you may bet that it is going to rain." This was what a man said who reads the condition of the crops when they are printed in the newspapers, and that is about once a month. " Did you ever notice," the man con tinued, " that the left side of a fellow is bogus? Well, it is. His left eye, for instance, is weaker than the right, llis left arm and leg are chumps com pared with the right, and then, too, a man's hair begins to turn gray on the negative side. When a man falls the chances are that he lands on his left side. It is the side one presents first to trouble and the last to get away from injury. More than half of the people who are struck by lightning are smitten on the left side. That is why I reckon that when you see a man scratch his left leg it's time to get an umbrella yourself and warn the nervous fellow to get under cover. The omen is better than the yelp of a peacock or a jolt of rheumatism in the thigh." A Word of Caution About Liquid Air. Engineering and Mining Journal. The advertisements which are now appearing in papers all over the coun try of companies who are to furnish liquid air on a large scale must be ac cepted with a great deal of caution. The public mind has been very adroit ly worked up for the reception of these by lectures, paragraphs in the press and other well understood methods. Undoubtedly liquid air possesses some valuable properties and many striking experiments can be performed with it. It is not by any means certain yet that it can be prepared, transported and used economically on a commer cial scale; or that the difficulties in the way have been overcome. We do not say that they may not be over come in the future; but to talk,as the advertisements do, of the certainty that liquid air will soon largely re- place steam in furnishing motive pow er, is going entirely too far. Such as sertions have no present basis of fact to warrant anyone in making them. The liquid air people have a great deal to do yet before they can establish their claims or carry on business on a scale that will warrant the organiza tion of $10,000,000 companies. The question of validity of patents is also quite au cqien one. It is doubtful if there is any valid patent oil this sub ject. ♦- ■ ■ ■■■ FIGURING UP THEIR PROFITS. Thrifty Citizens of Philadelphia Deciding what Convention was Worth. Philadelphia North American. The convention managers estimate that 250,000 visitors were in the city last week. With this number ns a basis the statisticians have been at work. The suite of rooms to be occupied by the national committee co«t S9OO a day. Many other suites were engaged at SIOO a day, and from that down to $lO a day. Thousands of people, however, lim ited tbeir room rent to $1 a day. A conservative estimate places the aver age per person at $2 a day. Consequently the landlords and landladies of Philadelphia enjoyed an income of $500,000 a day for four days. Total, $2,000,000. Expert caterers agree that the aver age cost of food per person may be conservatively placed at $2. Thous ands of the big politicians paid S2O apiece for dinner, but more will pay sl. This gives a total of $500,000 per day for food. Grand total, $'2,000,000. The estimate of $1 a person for liquid refreshment is low, according to old campaigners. Total for liquids $1,000,000. Cigar dealers reaped a harvest of at least $500,000. Street car companies gathered in nickels to the amount of $250,000. In feeding the multitude the butch ers' share was about $500,000. The bakers got $250,000. The farmers and commission mer chants received $500,000 for eggs, but ter and vegetables. The grocers received $250,000, and the remaining $500,000 was divided between the tea and coffee merchants, the fruiterers and ice cream makers. Modern Guns. The work of preparation for defend ing the coasts of the United States is progressing very well. There are now 85 12-inch, 118 10-inch, 94 8-inch, 308 rapid-firing guns, and 344 12-inch mortars in place. The manner of mounting modern coast-defense guns is altogether different from the old methods of mounting such guns. A 12-inch gun is now mounted simply in a hole in the ground prepared for it upon a disappearing carriage, as we call it. The carriage revolves upon a circle upon which the degrees are marked out—north, east, south and west. The gun is sighie 1 while down in the hole. The range-Under reports at sea, 4 miles away, at 10 degrees east of north, a vessel. Then the gun is swung around on the carriage to the point desired, so many degrees east of north as given by the range-finder. Theu tlicy go to the breech of the gun and give it the proper elevation to shoot 4 miles. They then operate the ratchet and the gun tips up out of the hole and fires. If . the range finder does his tfuty, the shot hits every time. That is the difference between the present manner of mounting guns and the old way, when they had to fire out of portholes. Two 12-inch guns may be mounted now on disappearing carriages at a cost of about $250,000. By means of the disappearing carriage, the firing can be more accurate and rapid, and the range of the gun is much greater, as by means of the disappearing car riage, it is possible to fire in any direc tion.
