Too much coiuiucmiailou could not be given the compulsory education de partment for Its crusade against the earrylng of arum by schoolboys and other lrrcspuulble persons. If this movement should be carried to Its log leal conclusion the death rate would be considerably minced, particularly on the Fourth of July, when lunatics who nre literally moving arsenals 111! our thoroughfares. In reappointing l'lre Chief Mushnm, Mayor Harrison has fulfilled tho pre diction made by The Kugle several lays ago. It Is an act of simple Jus tice to n brave and clllclcnt otllccr, nud one which the entire public of Chicago, from one end of the city to the other, will heartily commend. Just s In tho case of Hullding Comnils doner Williams, Tho ICaglo predicted more than u week In advance the ap pointment which was made Inst Mon thly night, and as In that case, too, gave Its reasons for so believing. Tho Knglo generally knows what It Is talk ing about. Hon. l'eter Klolbassa, as a member r the County Hoard, tho City Coun cil, and as City Treasurer, made a record of which any olllclal might well bo proud.

Tho reassuring Information comes from Colombia that President Marro quln has not resigned again. Tho Habcock theory of atoms Is that tho atom's weight depends on Its en ergy.

Man Is the only animal that can talk and that Is why ho so often makes a bear, a monkey, a sheep, n lobster or an ass of himself. Once upon a tlmo there was a man who was too lar.y to lie, so ho In vented a machine to do It for him and called It n gas meter. One of the astronomer has discov ered n large projection on Mars.

This ought to bo told to Hetty Green. Mho hasn't been nblo for u long tlmo to enjoy a Joke. England has Just seized three Islands In tho 1'ncltlc Ocean.

Tho Husslau Joker who caused n pan ic lu tho zoological gardens at 8t. Pe tersburg by shouting that tho tigers had escaped should exchnugo cards with tho American humorist who yells "l'lre!"

Our na tional representatives In tho now com monwealth should bo encougared by tho general cackling of their bisters who are left behind. King Edward, when In Rome, knows how to please tho Romans. Ho told King Victor Emmanuel, while on a recent visit to tho Italian capital, that Home was more cospomolltan than Paris and more enthusiastic than Lon don. Victor Emmanuel smiled, aud tho Uomiins, when they read tho re mark In tho newspapers, said that It HON. JAMES H. ECKELS, President of tho Commercial National Bank of Chicago Former Comptroller of tho Currency. took a king to know a good thing when ho saw It. King Edward has long been noted ns one of the most tactful men In Europe. Tho New York vegetarians now pro pose to wear shoes miuto of vegetables. Wooden sandals mid hemp thongs might do; nud then there arc colts foot, lcathcr-llower, leather-leaf, leather-wood, leather-plane, leathcrold, pan tnsote, caoutchouc and n dozen other vegetables that might till tho hill and avoid using the hides from poor dead animals. The report from Holla that tho Mace donian coiumlttco plans to tight nil Europe with tho germs of tho Indian plague If Its demnuds nro not con. ceded, Is simply beyond belief. Thero is something so tleudlsh In tho bnro suggestion of such it thing thnt It Is mini to raney any state of savagery that would put it Into operation. And yet who cnu nlnco bounds to nnliri.iii.il human passions? The pages of history are DiacKoncu uy atrocities almost as inhuman as lighting with the germs of a speedily fatal malady.

In conse quence they resent as cruel Injustice the fatigue, chagrin and newspaper no toriety that money invariably brings lu its trail. It would bo about as con sistent for a little boy who hud gorged himself on purloined apples to feel In jured when an avenging stomncluicho followed gluttony. Americans go to Europe to seo West minster Abbey, Europeans eomo to Amoricn to seo Niagara Fails and tho Yellowstono Park. Tho President, aft er spending two weeks In tho park, re marked that it was singular that more Europeans than Americans visited It. Ho hoped to seo Americans appreciat ing tho attractions of their own coun try. Ills hopo will bo realized, but thero will still remain thousands, if not millions, who fail to and anything beautiful lu their own village or their own county, but fancy-that only things nt n distance have tho power of en chantment. Tho other day a child fell out of tho window of a moving car on tho Now York elevated railway, That will eauso mothers to shudder. The moth ers who travel havo been positive that no greater danger could menaco their offspring than open car windows, They KMTroil rB r i vB 1 a 'BaBaaaar aBaaa. L&'a.a4aaaaaaaaW hnvo mentally calculated that It Is only a matter of time when somo precious cherub will go hurtling down under the merciless car wheels, nud tho un dertaker will do the rest. Women, and men, too, worry much about things that may happen, but seldom do. As far as Is known, but two chil dren out of the millions of little trav elers ever fell out of cur windows, previous to the New York episode. In this enso a handy man, with presence of mind, happened along lu tlmo to catch tho child, which feat ho neatly performed, nltbough tho human meteor weighed thirty pounds, nnd gave Daniel Walsh, bricklayer, a strenuous Jolt Tho child was uninjured. A story thnt has been passed down from early generations deals with n boy who had an Interne lovo for chicken, and his mother always saved the heart of tho fowl for her loved one. Otic day the heart slipped down hi throat be fore his teeth (ould perform their du ty, nud tho boy choked to death. Ever since mothers hnvo been carefully carving chicken hearts or warnlng'chll dren to "chew It line," nnd worrying most needlessly. Thero nre men and women by tho score who will not visit Europo because of tho perils of the sea voyage. They wotild not hesitate to go round the world on u railway train. Htntlstlcs show that occau travel Is safer than railway travel. Tho moral of It all Is that If wo humans must worry, why not endure mental distress about things that are at least within shooting distance, If possible. J. graham Phelps Htokes is tho sou nnd'grninlson of a Now York million aire. Ho Is rich beyond tho dream of nvnrlcc. Moro than that. Mr. Stokes Is wise. Ho Is wlso beyond his fntnlly, which Is wealthy aud aristocratic. Mr. Stokes, has learned that money is not wealth. Young Stokes left n luxurious ly furnished homo and went to llvo lu n small, simply furnished room lu tho heart of tho overcrowded East Sldo In order with his money and knowledge to nld nnd uplift tho poor whose pov erty and environment havo niado exist ence n constant strugglo against mis fortune. Young Stokes, mind you, Is no anaemic, hollow-chested, sad-vis-aged sort of person. Ho is n man. Ho Is thirty years of age, six feet four In height and built llko an athlete. Ho works ten to eighteen hours a day aud thrives on If. And this Is what ho says about his clioseu work: "Somo of my friends tell me thnt I hnvo left ho hind nil fun, all pleasure. Even If that was true, 1 would reply that fun Is not tho main purposo of life. Hut It Is not true. This Is the most Interesting llfo I havo ever led. It Is deep, whole souled enjoyment from beginning to end." Them's the old, old paradox: Ho that losuth his llfo shall Hud it. For ever and forever do tho votaries of pleasiiro leturn empty-hnnded from tho quest for happiness. Forever Is the self-centered llfo doomed to disappoint ment. Forever Is It truo that happi ness comes only through self-renunciation and service. All tho world knows this Is true, but only onco hi a wlillo Is there a Stokes who nets as If ho be lieved It. Hesldo wealth of brain and lienrt, money Is trash. Young stokes has chosen tho hottor part. Many neoplo who nnvo been unfortu nate enough to havo much to do with doctors will join with President Draper in bis lament over, tho passing of tho "family doctor." Many of them will also indorse his very candid and caus tic criticism of tho slovenly, nido aud discourteous members of tho profes sion, and no ono will dissent from bis statomtnt thnt "tho scientific knowl edge and tho mission of tho doctor of medlclno should combine to mako him tho best exemplar In socloty of phys ical. Intellectual and moral cleanli ness," What Dr. Draper said to tho graduates of the Collego of Physicians und Surgeons In Chicago concerning tho passing of tho family doctor, how ever, will nttract widest attention be causo of tho closo relation ho has sus tained to thousands of families In the past. It Is true that that benignant nud gentle personality always tho ex emplar of tho highest Ideals of citizen ship In his community Is not yet ex tinct, t Ho Is ministering to tho af flicted lu ninny n hamlet nud town. Ho Is still tho welcomo comforter In distress and tho valued counselor In trouble. Ho Is tho "father confessor" of many n human heart, admitted to the most sacred recesses of human feeling, hope and fear. Hut wo are In nn age of specialization, when tho greatest progress In medicine, ns well us In other lines of scientific endeav or, is made by tho specialist who de votes his life to tho study of u par ticular branch of Ids profession. It is only through this specialization that tho "hideous blundering nnd uncertain ty" of which Dr. Draper complains in tho practice of medlclno may be avert ed. The growth of this specialization, which crowds out tho "fniully doctor," naturally tends toward commercialism, as Dr. Draper says. The city special ist Is not npt to hnvo all tho gcutlo nnd sympathetic attributes that endear to us the family doctor. Ho docs not sustain such lutlmnto relations to tho family life. And yet wo cannot get along without hi in. Ho knows mora nbout pulmonary diseases, If that Is his specialty, than docs tho family prac titioner in tho country. Much ns wo vnluo the visitation nud counsel of tho "family doctor," tho specialist is nn ev olution of our scientific progress whoso services nro Indlspcnsublo In certain emergencies. Next to the growth of tho United States, tho expansion of tho Hussion cmplro Is tho most potentially signifi cant fact in contemporary history. Considerable excitement was caused In various foreign offices recently by the report that Itussla had decided to rcgnrd Manchuria as part of tho em pire. Yet It Is well known that Hus sion Influence has been dominant In Manchuria slnco 1808, and that Itttlo more Is needed to mako it Russian ter ritory than tho official acknowledg ment that China no longer exercises authority there. Ilussln can afford to watt for this, as it already enjoys prac tically nil tho advantages of posses sion, Including access to tho Ice-frco ports of tho Yellow Sea. It Is large ly because Russian statesmen know how to wait for tho opportune moment that tho empire Is so largo to-day, nnd that Its encroachment on tho territory of other nations interests foreign min isters so deeply. For nearly six cen turies, oyov since tho cmplro was noth ing moro than Moscow with a few hundred square miles .round about, Itussla lias been expanding. For two centuries expansion has gono on with a dcllnltc and consistent policy. It was Peter tho Great who secured tho territory on which St. Petersburg now stands, lu order that ho might havo access to tho opcu sen. Access to the Hnltle, and to tho North Pacific through Siberian ports, has not con tented his successors. Through Man churia they hnvo reached tho Yellow Sea, and aro drifting southward to ward the Mediterranean nnd tho Per sian Qulf with n steadiness which sug gests tho Irresistible movement of tho glacier. Tho disturbing facts lu Eu ropean politics aro chiefly attributable to Russian aspirations: tho control of tho Halknn stutcs, in order to secure access by its navy to tho Mcdltcr nnnean, and tho domination of Persia so effectually as to securo a highway from Its own froutler to the Persian Gulf for commercial and military pur poses, Those Imperial projects conflict with the Interests of Great Britain, Austria, Italy and Germany. Thoy are especially injurious to Great Britain, slnco In both cases they admit a pos siblo future enemy to points adjacent to tho way to India. The Russian movement toward tho Persian Gulf, In particular, is so seriously regarded In London that tho government baa formally declared In Parliament that tho establishment of a naval station In those waters would bo regarded as a mouaco to British Interests, and would be resisted, The Langc viiOv w "A Gentleman Shoe." 149 Dearborn Street.
