While Thu Kudo Is not an apologist for anybody who Is In any decree lo -potislble for the dfe.lilful Iroquois the-ate,- dlyuster, at the same time It would suggest that reason be used lu placing the blaiiio and gauging the amount of It. lu this o.ninoetlon the case of l'liv Man-hal Mtedmui and itulldliig Com missioner Williams may be appioprl ately referred to. The duty of the Hit marshal and of the department Is primarily and main ly to put out tires when they occur. Sometimes tin's occur through viola tions of thu Hie oidluanees. In hun dreds; of cases these violations have tlimugli a long stretch of .xeai's oc curred with the full knowledge of the legislative and executive branches of the city government. Tho lire department In till- respect has always fought with Its hands tied. As icg.irds the Itulldliig Coiumls-'Ion-or, any blanii that may attach to him can only lellect upon his superior In otllce. Itulldliig Commissioner Williams furnished the Maor with thu report showing the condition of the theaters and their failure to comply with the law, which the Mayor should have act ed upon, but did not. Herein the .May or shirked his resonshlllty, Inasmuch as he rcfeiml the lepoit upon which ho should have acted to the Council, which had no authority lu the matter. Herein the Itulldliig Commissioner did his duty, ami HiiitImui, an usual, did not do his. P.ut It should bi) borne In mind that It was tht) report of the niilldlug Coin-nils-loner that furnished the real basis for tho ooi oner's Jury to act In hold ing Harrison to the Grand Jury. Those two oillcers, Flro Maishal Mushum and Itulldliig Coinnilsxlouor Williams, should bo treated with due consideration of all tho facts and cir cumstances in dealing with this case. HOW IS THIS FOR USSELFISHNESS All who have followed the fortunes of Harrison will at mice admit that throughout It all tho ego has been the main and dominating factor of It. Tho personal pronoun Iiuh been sin gularly prominent, and that, too, in such manner as to prove conclusive ly that the ego has been over tin- para mount Issue with Hani-on.

Nothing would be easier than to provide them with work If there was active and elllclent adminis tration. They could be made to saw wood, shovel snow, clean streets or a doen other things. It Is a perfectly safe assertion that If such work were provided the tiamps would speedily It 1 1 tl other places to spend the winter. It Is easy for Amoilonns to see the Inherent absuidlty of war lu the case of Japan and Httsslu, To settle it dis pute over a piece of land by lighting Is evidently Irrational, Tlio world's well-being Is not advanced b.v the man ufacture of widows and orphans, by the desolation of a country and by thu hatreds that follow war. Were inter national ethics as deilnlte and on as high a plane as private morality there would be no more excuse for battles than there Is for duels. The triteness of this comment does not detract from the need of Us reiteration. Only when people come to realize' the possibility and advantages of settling disputes poaofully will there bo a cessation of war. A wniker aiming the wayward street boys of New York City gives little par ties at his house, and Invites a few boys at a time to meet decent men and women.

An Intelligent Armenian who hat chosen Atactica for his home, and who wishes to do as Americans do. recently asked Dr. Kdwaid Kverett Hale If he recommended Joining any political or ganization.

'I am holler than thou' was a very bad motto for the 1'liaiisee. and Is a very bad motto for Ainei leans." The settlement of the troublesome qtictlou of the f rials' lauds In the Philippines gives to the United States the title to nearly all of the real prop city of tho religious otdcrs In the Isl ands, lu letiirn, the Culled States pays tho friars seven and a quarter million dollars. The woik of the church, anil, Indeed, of thu lellglous associations, will go on as before, so far as the spir itual and social side of It Is concerned; hut the orders cease to he landlords.

The possession of four hundred thou sand acres of the richest and most valuable land In the Islands gives the means to carry out Iho plan of estab lishing a ciass of small landowners, se cure In their posses-Ion and devoted to tho maintenance ami development of ineiicaii principles. A youth and a girl were married not long aga. Thoy promised to love, choi-h and obey all the things that aro a part of a "regular niariiago ser vice, and mean much or little, as the ca-e may he. The man ami woman were strangers. They met on the day of their marriage. The courtship was a nuttier of correspondence, and the correspondence was the sequel to a wager made by the youth with his college chum. Why will men and women trllle with nuitiiinoiiyV They wouldn't Invest JjiHM) In a gold watch without a thorough Investigation. They would ask for n guarantee. They would be certain that what looked llko gold was not brass. They would consult an export. They would be sum that thu timepiece was a real bargain. And yet a man will wed a woman of whom he knows no nioie than that her face Is pleasing, her tig lire well molded. Very often ho Is sorry. Very often the home becomes a sect Inn of hades. There Is vitupera tion and scolding; nagging that drives a weak man lo drink; and love why, husband ami wife discover that there never was any love, even lu tho be ginning. And It Is worso for tho woman. When she marries she hut us her bridges behind her. She gives her future to a man. She is helpless, she Is entitled to consideration, tender af fection, sympathy, thorough under standing. You see she gives up much more than a man has to give when she marries. What chance lias she when she weds a strangerV Surely an alliance for life Is of more Importance than the purchase of u watch, or a horse, or a dug, or any nmteilal thing. And when you read of a sudden niar iiago lu which romance and folly are mixed, you wonder about tho parents; why they uuildn't cam enough aUiut their girl to warn her, advise her, prevent her from taking a step that spells iiilu nine times In ten. Tho man who Is entitled to a good wife should he man enough to open the doors of his I It'o and court Inspection, Tho woman who Is worth having Is also worth winning In the old-fashioned way. It lakes time, ami It makes happiness. "Nowadays wo lead too much, as wo eat too iiimh; tho memory, like tho digestion, Is weakened by surfeit." ihese winds aro taken from a recent biography of Whlttler. The author shows how meager In quantity was tho Intellectual diet of tho poet lu boy hood. Tlie lllble, "Pilgrim's Progress," ami a few of the volumes which form ed the Quaker library of his parents worn thu chief staple of his reading. Tho contrast between conditions of boyhood which produced such men nsj littler and those u w ilcli tho youth of our day am nurtured Is frequently pointed out to tho disadvantage of thu present. It Is tho fashion to be wail tho multiplication of books nnd magazines. Hecauso ono person or nn other tries to read them all nnd falls, or meets with that success which turns his mind into a scrap-bag riddled with holes, It Is argued that modern condi tions are nil wrong, nnd thnt "chill zatlou" should turu buck to curlier wnys. It Is n plausible ,cry, but Is it quite convincing? Tlio world Is full of u number of things which did not ex ist n hundred years ago. Moreover, Its population has enormously Increased which Is to say that where there was formerly ono boy or girl looking for knowledge, there aro now hundreds of similar seekers. Therefore tho agen cies of knowledge have Inevitably bo wildeilngly increased. Hut must tho Individual Inevitably bo bewildered? That there Is tio more of a eat than Its skin Is a homely statement of unchang ing truth, The human mind Is still the human mint. Not even a lt.icou can presume lu our days to take all knowledge for hM province. Out of every thousand printed pages there may possibly be one or two for any given person. The teacher of another and of himself must learn to discrimi nate. The wise man will rejoice In every new mad to learning, but, after trending the few paths proved tho host by the wisdom of tho aues. will enter those new loads only which are meant for him. An optimistic minister of Maine de votes ten minutes before beginning his Sunday sermon to a brief review of the good deeds done dining tho week as icpuiicit by the newspapers. Kxcelleiit. There Is too much empha sis of evil. It Is dwelt upon, exploit ed, exaggeiatod, deplored. The good Is often overlooked, or unseen, or neg lected, or minimized. Yet tho good deeds exceed the evil ones over whelmingly so. Note the editorials of a newspaper that pays attention to the real life of the people. How much the editor lluds to commend! lie tlnds It everywhere In tho news column. livery any iimis "soino work ot love begun, soino deed of kindness done." It Is simply a question of choice as to which best points a moral or adorns a talc. The editor tlnds the good bo cause ho Is looking for It. That's It. One tlnds what ono seeks. If he looks for evil to condemn he lluds that also. And for the same mason. He Is look ing for It. If you ure a pessimist you will llnd plenty of mutetlal for your harsh philosophy In the weaknesses of humankind. Your search will be an easy one. For evil obtrudes Itself more than does the good. There's tlio dally news: livil Is news because It Is the exception to the general rule of goodness. What Is the universal rule Is not news. And yet despite this fact, the good and the true and tho noble crop out everywhere lu the news. If you see only the evil, you aro sure hit- inanity Is going to the dogs. If you see the good as well, you aro sure hu manity Is on the upward trend. If you look for the good deeds of men, If It plon-os jolt to discover the good. If you have an nihility for tho goud, you will Hud It. And when you have found the good, emphasize it. Hold It up lo tlio world. Cherish It. If you want to discover mud you will see mud. If you want to look for tho sun Its bilghtnoss win cheer you. Tlio associated teacher, adopted a resolution favoring reform lu spelling by the dropping of some of the iiImuii! twists, tlie supoiiltious letters, that bur den the langiipagc, add to the labor of writing and printing It. ami serve no more u-eful purpose than does the ver miform appendix In the human system. There is merit In the proposition. Tlio most dlllloilt study to master Is the spelling book. Tho rigors of mathe matics are play compared with that. No person ever becomes a perfect mus ter In It. No person lu wilting but runs against some words the spelling of which are uncertain; not rum words but those of comparatlvel.v common use. Most persons solve the doubt by writing tho words in two or mom spellings and selecting tho ono that "looks right." The (ionium 1 happily exempt from this burden of enucatlon. The silent letter Is almost unknown. He spells tho word as ho pronounces It. It spells Itself, as do our simpler words. Were our words spelled pho netically, If every letter mprosonted some sound lu them, an Immense amount of wasted time now spent lu trying to memorize tho quips and twists of letters would bo saved to be given to tho acquisition of other knowl edge. No ono can estimate tho effect on other branches, of the labor absurd ly Imposed upon students by our spell ing, or what tho effect would be If they were relieved from It. May It not be that the real source ot most of theso complaints ho generally vented against the liiellbieuey of Instruction Is thu confusion caused lu the minds of chil dren, tho needless labor Involved, lu trying to master the spelling lessonsV And am not the "poor spellers" of our si boots, tho-o who make the spelling r.f words conform to their sound when spoken, really our be-t spcllersV If not that, am thoy not the strongest protest against It and tholr "poor" spelling the strongest argument for tlio reform tho-o experienced teadios pro pose? Medical men have already begun to discuss thu relation of tho digging of the Panama Canal to tho health of the wot Id. I la liy last year a Hrltlsh phy sician slid that the employment of Asiatics on the wuik would bo fol lowed by the Impmtiitltiu o yellow fi ver into Asia unless extr.iordlnaiy pre" cautious woo taken. Another physi cian has urged that steamships clear lug for Asiatic ports should ho thor oughly luiulgutoil after leaving Pana ma, so that all mosquitoes might be killed. Ho also proposes tlie adoption of such sanitary incisures on thu Isth mus us would stamp out yellow fever them as It lias heeti stamped out lu Havana.
