JOB kx NEATLT At the office of WASHINGTON STA NDAKD ! A FAR GREATER NAVY. THE ADMINISTRATION WORKING TOWARD THAT END. The recent test of the American built battleship Retvizan, constructed for the Russian navy, was so success ful that it proves beyond doubt the superiority of vessels of this descrip tion of home manufacture. To the gratification of all interested in the test, the speed of the big boat was found very even, averaging 18 to 19 knots during the entire time. During one hour the speed reached 19 knots, and at no time did it fall below 18. At the conclusion of 12 hours the average speed was found to have been 18.8 knots, which excels the record of all other battleships of the first-claes in the world for the same length of time. A speed of more than 18 knots was maintained through 17 hours of the run. This excellent showing is all the more interesting from the fact that Secretary Long will ask Congress to appropriate $99,000,000 for the navy for the fiscal year 1902-1903. This is more than $20,000,000 more than was appropriated at the last session, when Congress granted him nearly $78,000,- 000. Secretary Long has now in mind the asking of Congress for three new battleships and two armored cruisers. But he has not definitely concluded to do so. The fact is patent, therefore, that American battleships of tta first-class may be constructed at borne and that, as in the case above cited, it will not be necessary to look abroad for any of our new vessels. Not a few officers are inclined to the belief that President Roosevelt may even ask for four battleships. Secretary Long will also make a strong plea for a large number of gun boats. He said this week that the esti mates were made with a due regard for the needs of the navy, and inti mated that they had the approval of the Administration. He said that the building of a battleship costing $5,000,- 000 was not the end of its expense, as its maintenance was very costly. The Neueite NaehricKUn, a German paper, says the report that President Roosevelt aims at a considerate in crease of the navy is confirmed by the new naval estimates, which ask for $22,000,000 more, aod which would be double the amount of the appropria tion for the German navy until March 31,1902. The paper adds: "The American navy becomes a more important power every year and ell other seafaring nations must ear nestly consider it." The National Zeitnng says: '• Pres ident Roosevelt's proposed increase of the navy can nowhere excite distrust. The more the United States partici pates in the world's politics the better for each single Power. The greater the number of possible diplomatic combinations, the greater the liberty of action." The chief of bureau of steam engi neering, Admiral Melville, in hia an nual report indicates that by the' end of the year there will have been ad ded to the aea force of the United States a total of 33 vessels, including three battleships, the Illinois, Alabama and Wisconsin. During the year 1902 the navy will be further increased by 19 vessels, in cluding two battleships, the Ohio and Maine. Of other ahipa now under construc tion the battleship Missouri will be finished in July, 1993, and during the first six month* of 1904 the navy will be further increased by the completion of the following vessels: Five battle ships, the Virginia, Nebraska, Georgia, New Jersey and Rhode Island; six ar mored cruisers, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, California, Colorado, Mary land, and South Dakota, and tbree protected cruisers, St. Louis, Milwau kee. and Charleston. INFAMOUS BLASPHEMY. At the recent meeting of the Ohio Republican Association resolutions were introduced referring to President McKinley's death as " a dispensation of Providence." J. H. Brigham, Pres ident of the Association and Assistant Secretary of Agriculture, protested. He declared that Providence could not be held responsible for the awful deed of the assassin. Several members de clared that such wording was univer sally used. " That," said Mr. Brigham, " is the very reason I want it worded differ ently. I will not have it that Provi dence was responsible for the death of Mr. McKinley. The objectionable wording was cut out. Mr. Brigham was right. It is "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." plasphetnous to charge a just God with responsibility for a crime that filled the whole civilized world with horror. Czolgosz is regarded as a fiend, an emissary of hell, and any man known to have shared the respon sibility of his atrocious deed would be loathed by all good men as an inhu mane monster. Then why ascribe to a benign Provi dence, the source of all goodness and love, responsibility for a crime that would forfeit the life and consign to everlssting obloquy any human being having a part in it? It is blasphemy of the deepest dye. If there is such a thing as an unpardonable sin against God this must be of that class. TREASURE TROVE. Lake Champlain's Old Treasure Ship. N. Y. World. Several problems of considerable del icacy have been presented by the re covery, a few years ago, of 10,000 sov ereigns from an Englisli.sloop that has been lying since 1777 at the bottom of East Bay, Lake Champlain, says the New York Time*. The treasure was sent from Quebec for use in paying Burgoyne's troops, and the vessel was scuttled by its captain, one Johnson, when he was attacked by a superior force of Yankee eoldiers in retreat af ter the reverse at Hubbardton. There was afterward some suspicion that Capt. Johnson removed and ap priated the treasure before he sank the sloop, but his honesty is at last vindicated. With the course of the years the sloop was covered with silt brought down by a neighboring river, but this spring unusually high water washed much of the deposit away and left a portion of the wreck exposed. Hr. George B. West, a civil engineer turned the course of the stream, did a little work with pick and shovel, and then with a charge of dynamite broke epen the old hull. In the cabin he found a few muskets and an iron chest, and in the latter were the sov ereigns, quite unharmed by the long submersion. They are now in a bank at Fair Haven, claimed as treasure trove by the State of Vermont. Prof. S. M. Macvane, of Harvard, has made the somewhat painful suggestion that perhaps the British government can establish an equity, if not a right, in the gold, and that, as its origin is known, Vermont may be moved to make some sort of restitution. Naturally enough, this idea has not been received with enthusiasm in Ver mont. Why, indeed, should it be? The title to property passes very easily in time of war and if the Americans who forced the sinking of the sloop been able to fish up its precious con tents, they certainly would have taken possession of them without any com punctions. New York State has quite as good a claim to the gold as Great Britain has, for it was not until years after 1777 that Vermont's ownership of the region where the treasure lay was admitted by this State, and dur ing that period we had a sort of pro prietary interest in the gold. A grave, scholarly looking man was much attracted by a petite blonde at a dinner recently. He hoped she might prove as intelligent as she was charm ing, and so drew her into conversa tion, with the following results: "You must admire Bir Walter Scott?" he exclaimed with sudden an imation. "Is not his 'Lady of the Lake' exquisite in its flowing grace and poetic imagery? Is it not—" " It is perfectly lovely," she assent ed, clasping her hands in ecstacy. " I suppose I have read it a dosen times." " And Scott's ' Marmion,' he contin ued, " with its rugged simplicity and marvelous descriptions. One can al most smell the heather on tbe heath while perusing its splendid pages." "It is perfectly grand," she mur mured. "And Scott's Emulsion," be con tinued hastily, for a faint suspicion was beginning to dawn upon him. " I think," she interrupted rashly, "that it's the best thing be ever wrote." *ulad by WONKA Besjukovschtschina, in Russia, is probably the only place in the world that is run entirely by women.

OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, NOV. 8, 1901. A FEW DONTS ABOUT EATING. Don't eat fast. Time is money. Every minute saved at your meals is a dollar in the pocket of your physician later on in life. Don't Bwallow food before it is prop erly chewed. Man's chewing was meant to be done in his mouth. If we had a gizzard instead of a stomach we might swallow pebbles with our meals and have the stomach do the work of crushing the food, as the chicken does. Don't eat fat soaked food. Toast may be spread with butter and then healed in the oven until it is as fat soaked as cabbage boiled with bacon. The toast is thus made quite as indi gestible as the cabbage. Don't eat dark meat too exclusively. Some people confine themselves to rare beef and the dark parts of fowl. The dark meat contains a larger amount than other kinds of the irri tating stimulant extractive substances of the meat. These are especially un suitable for nervous individuals and those of a gouty teudency. Don't let children take stimulants at their meals. This includes not only alcoholic stimulants, but coffee, tea, condiments, etc. Until children are twelve years old at least they are much better on milk and water and not too rich cocoa, with thin broths and gruels. Don't drink too much liquid during meals—never more than half a pint, usually less. The dilution of the gas tric juice impairs its efficacy and the stomach is not able to accomplish its digestive churning movements when filled with a large amount of fluid. Don't drink too much just after eat ing. Bome people faithfully deny themselves liquid during a meal, and take a quantity of it just after. Don't drink too little during and just after a meal. About half a pint of water or some other simple liquid should be taken, most of it near the end of the meal. Don't drink spirituous liquors to excess at meals. Alcohol prevents the gastric ferments from acting and so delays digestion. Don't drink a large cnp of strong coffee after a h«*H» meal. Coflbe also paralyses the stomach ferments. On the other band, in people not inclined to ner vousness, a small amount of coffee or alcohol -stimulates the action and se cretion of digestive ferments. Don't drink too little water between meals. This is a very common fault among city folk. At least four to five pints of liquid, tea, coffee, water and milk, should be taken during the day. Most of this should be taken several hours before and after meals, some on rising and going to bed. Don't take other people's advice as to what you may or may not eat. Stomachs are at least as individual as their owfters. No one, not even your doctor, can dictate an iron-clad list to you. He can help you to find out what your diet should be. Don't fast to cure indigestion. As the body gets weaker its functions also weaken, and digestion will not im prove. " I My, my dear," Mid Mr. Timmina, u he draw a gun from the caae and eyed it critically. "1 want you to wake me up early in the morning; I'm going shooting." " lan't that too sweet?" ejaculated Mrs. Timmina. "I'll wear my new dreas, and crimp my hair. Where do we got" "I'm going down to the marshes and youll go as far as the front door," grunted Mr. Timmina. " Women don't go shooting; it's only men. All you've got to do is to wake me up and get breakfMt. When I come home you'll have some birds." " Won't that be nice?" claimed Mrs. Jimmins. " Can you catch bird* with that thing?" and Mrs. Timmina flat tered round the improved breech loading shot gun, firmly impressed that it was some kind of a trap. " I can kill 'em with this," explained Mr. Timmins. " This is a gun, my dear; it isn't a bird's nest with three speckled eggs in it, nor is it a barn with a hole in the roof. You stick the cartridges Jn here and pull the trigger, and down comes the bird every time." " Isn't that lovely! I suppose if you don't wan't a partridge you can stick a duck or a turkey in that end, too; or a fish or a lobster, and bring it down just as quick?" " You can stick a house or a corn field or a female idiot in there, too, if you want to!" snorted Mr. Timmins. " Who said anything about a part ridge? It's a cartridge that goes in there." "Oh!" ejaculated Mrs. Timmins, rather crestfallen. I see now. Where does the bird go?" "He goes to night school, if he hasn't got any more sense than yon MR. TIMMINS' GUN. have," snorted Mr. Timmina. " Look here, now, and I'll show you how it works," and Mr. Timmins inserted the cartridge half way in the tuuzale end, and cautiously cocked the weapon. "And when the bird sees that, he comes and pecka at it! Then you put out your hand and catch him!" "You've got it!" howled Mr. Tim mins, who had the hammer on the half-cock, and was vainly pulling at the trigger to get it down. " That's the idea! All you need is four feath ers and a gas bill to be a martingale! With your notions, you only want a new stock and a steam-trip hammer to be a needle gun! Don't you know the blessed thing has got to go off be fore you get a bird? You shoot the bird, you don't have to wait for 'em to shoot you! While I am waiting for a bird," coutinued Mr. Timmins, ad justing the cartridge at the breech. "I put the charge in here for safety. And when I see a flock I aim and fire." Bang! went the gun, knocking the tail feather* out of an eight-day clock, and ploughing a foot furrow in the wall. "Why cosldn't ye keep stillT" he shrieked. Wbat'd ye want to disturb my aim for and make me let it off? Tbiuk I can hold back a charge of powder and s pound of shot while a silly woman is scaring it through a gun-barrel?" "If that trad been a bird, bow nicely you would have shot it!" sug gested Mrs. Timmins, soothingly. "If you ever should aim at a bird you'd catch him, certain!" " Oh, you know what I could do! If I bad your intelligence on sporting subjects, I'd hire out for a alios tower. Don't you know you've spoilt the in fernal gunT You've ruined thatgun," he continued, solemnly. "It won't ever go off again." " Never mind, dear," consoled Mrs. Timmins. " It's been off enough, and I'd just as soon have some oysters as birds. You go to bed and we'll try to get along without any birds." "It won't ever go off again," re peated Mr. Timmins, as he climbed into his bed. " That's a ruined gun." And lie turned hisface to the wall. ••• The UHlest Lady. The littlest lady in the land, dainty, plump and pretty is Cbiquita who sings her little song, dances Iter little dance, gives you her little hand to shake and tells you in a little voice all about herself at the Pan-American Exposition. " I was born in Mantanzcs, Cuba, in 1869," she said. "You see I am thirty-two years old. I don't know bow I happened to be so small; all my own people were large. I was edu cated in Cuba and came to the United States at the outbreak of the revolu tion in oor Island. It was then sug gested to me that I go on the stage and I did so, and liked it. lam going to retire to private life, however, when the Exposition is over." Chiquita is about twenty-six inches tall, and weighs eighteen pounds. She has a pretty figure perfectly de veloped, her arras are shapely and her tiny bands models of beauty. Physi cally and mentally, Chiquita is a per fect woman in miniature. She wears a handsome diamond studded watch presented to her by Queen Victoria. She is very proud of this watch and also of the insignia of the royal househould, presented by the Prince of Wales, now King Ed ward. , " 1 had a very delightful trip abroad," she Mid. "Queen Victoria sent for me and I appeared before her. She seemed greatly interested in me and asked many questions about my family and my former home. The Prince was very nice, too, and I saw his lovely wife, now the Queen." Unlike many other stage favorilM, Chiquiti haa never been married; she does not depend upon the number of ber divorces to ad?brtise herself. She travels with her maid, manages her own affairs with great skill, and, when necesMry, uses a typewriter. Awkward. A Parisian countess once paid a visit to the late M. Gounod at his villa in St. Cloud. She passed through the dining-room just as the remains of the breakfast were being cleared away. She saw several cherry stones lying on a plate before the master's chair, and took one, carefully conceal ing it in her glove. Sometime after Gounod repaid the visit. The lady, smiling and blushing, showed him a brooch containing the cherry stone set in brilliants, and re lated the origin of the stone. " I must tell my servant that," re plied Gounod, smilingly. It will please him highly. Jean loves cher ries so much, but I never eat them myself." , The lady never wore the brooch again. MARS IS INHABITED. PEOPLE DWELL ON OUR PLANE TARY NEIGHBOR. This Claim is Very Confidently and Soberly Advanced by a Skilled German Scientist— Improbable That Communication Will Ever Be Established Between That Beautiful Orb and Our Own. "Is Mars inhabited?" has been asked very often daring recent years, and has engaged the serious attention of many astronomers, and especially of M. Camille Flammarion, a noted French scientist and author. Some new light is now thrown on this subject by Prof. Ernest Hseckel, an eminent German philosopher, in a book entitled " World Problems." After pointing out that men have studied the heavens for more than 4,500 years and have only been study ing themselves for the last half cen tury, he says we may safely assume that the many fixed stars whose light requires thousands of years to reach us, are suns, and are surrounded by planets and worlds similar to those we know. We may also assume, he holds, that thousands of these planets have arrived at the same stage of de velopment as our world, and it natur ally follows that on them the same conditions of life prevail as on this earth, and IUNIU . why human beings should not live there as they do here. Prof. Hieckel takes care to explain that there are doubtless many plqnets the temperature of which is such that life, as we understand the term, can not be sustained on them. He thinks it very probable that there are types of animals and plants on some planets which are not to be found on this earth. According to him, it is very likely that the biogenic process exists on Mars, Venus and possibly some other planets of our system, as well as on planets of other solar systems, but plants on these planets have reached a higher stage of development than has been reached by animals and plants of this earth. If we assume that Mars is inhabited —and Prof. Hseckel seems pretty well satisfied that it is—we most assume, ha holds, thatthe men and women whoee home is on the planet are not such as we, but of - a far-higher type. They may resemble us exteriorly, but tbey are free from our physical de fects and excel u| in strength and gracefulness. It is in the intellectual sphere, however, and their superiority is most clearly shown. If there are human beings on these planets, says Prof. Hreckel, it is extremely prob able that they far surpass ordinary men and women in intelligence. Another question often asked is: " Will we ever be able to communicate with the inhabitants of distant plan etsT" Prof. Hseckel's reply is that there is very little probability of any direct communication ever being established. His reasons are because the earth is such a great distance from Mars and other planets, and because the condition of the air between the earth and these planets is such as to render direct communication by any means at present known to us impos sible. A Warning. Albur Journal. I took a trolley ride over east yester day afternoon just by way of observing the holiday. Coming back a stranger to me got on at a small station and Mt down beside me. He was long, lean and lanky. First he looked out of the car window and then at me. Settling deeper in his seat he suddenly | remarked: " Do you drink, young man?" I said I4.idn't mind if I did.) He Mid that he would mind, though. " Furthermore," be continued," lam surprised that a man of your modest appearance, with eyes denoting Christ ian breeding, a forehead denoting good moral character and a month too pure to withstand the taint of intemper ance, should be willing to indulge in the flowing bowl." He was about the meanest man I ever struck. I went to the smoking compartment and pulled at my pipe. A Great Battl£ " A terrific battle occurred soma time back near a town in Vermont," says a correspondent. "The New York papers omitted to give an ac count of the great fight. " A very hot season had completely dried up a large pond, and almost dried up a still larger one close by. From the first pond an enormous body of frogs started to go to the big ger one. When half way they were met by an equally great army sent to guard the larger sheet of water. The battle that followed was Homeric. "The hideous clamor brought many people to the exciting scene. The sight will never be forgotten by those who saw it. The fierce battle of the I bullfrogs continued for twelve hours." ROOSEVELT'S CAREER IN BRIEF.

SOUTH SEA PARADISE. Where Preponderance of Women Is Only Source of Trouble. A late report from the British colon ial office gives a quaint and delightful picture of life in the Pitcairn islands, in the South Pacific. These little islands were first colonized many years ago by six mutineers from the ship Bounty. The colony has now in creased to more than a hundred per sona; besides populating the neigh boring island of Norfolk. The former mutineers have become a prosperous Christian community, living under almost ideal conditions. According to the colonial report, disease is unknown on the islands. The men work from 5 o'clock in the morning until 2 in the afternoon on public enterprises. The government consists of a firm and able President, Mr. McCoy, and seven assessors. The community is self-suf ficing, and the soil of the islands pro duces an abundance of good things almost spontaneously. The whole picture of peace and plenty is qnite idyllic to come out of so staid and matter-of-fact publication as a British Government report. Yet it appears that even the Pitcairn isl anders are not quite content. Their trouble is somewhat akin to that which disturbed the original Garden of Eden. "Phere is too large a prepon derance of men. The colonists have sent a native request calling upon Mr. Chamberlain to correct this unfortu nate embarrassment of riches and also to send them a ship for the use of the colony. The most important question to decide is whether to send a cargo of unmarried men to the Pitcairn islands or to deport the surplus women. There is danger of creating trouble either way in the South Sea paradise. From Indiana. Dramatic Mirror.
