By M. B4wln Lawla, M. D. 0For the past At eara the dominant fea tures of modern medicine hare been doubt, pessimism and Intolerance. With tactless teal the medical profession hat done Its laun dry work In the full gate of m ever-critical and not over-friendly public. Quarrels with our tools and with each other have been tho order of the day. Criti cism, suspicion and accusation have been rife, and on every bond have sprung up commercial tend encies that have lowered the dignity and efficiency of our profession. The thirst for money, power and position has possessed us, and under the spell of these danger ous Intoxicants too many of us have lost sight of the true nature and obligations of our calling. With a stupidity that Is Incomprehensible we hnvo rushed to sit at the feet of every new prophet, no mat ter how questionable his teaching, and have foolishly forsaken tho time-proved logic of the old. Thus, In many Instances, established facts have been discarded for phan tom theories though temporarily, let us hope. The wor ship of the laboratory fetish has mused us to sadly neg lect cllulcal and bedside observation. COSTLINESS OF NATION'S WAE SPIRIT. By V. S. Justlea Briwer, "T At tho close of tho civil war we owed B about $3,000,000,000. In the twenty-five or 7 thirty years following that we paid two- WJ thirds of that debt. Since then, although K during the last ten years we have hadNun- exnmplcd prosperity, we have not paid a aJL dollar, mid we owo to-day, as wo did at the Rl end of tho' Spanish war, 11,000,000,000. Win I During tho past ton years tho aoorouria- tlous for our army and navy (exclusive of pensions) have aggregated SI ,020,000,000, nu excess over the prior ten years of $1,110,000,000. This Is why we have not paid the national debt. Is this nation any better off, with Its magnificent fleet of Ironclads and Its larger army, than It would have been If It had paid Its national debt and stood today as the ono great nation on the face of the earth not owing a dollnr? The surplus excess of our military and naval expend!-, turo for tho last teu years would have reclaimed every arid acre within the limits of this country, and would have given us magiilllccut cnnnlc, stretching from tho North to the South. Every schc.ol In the country has Its military company. We are all craving for war, and wo cannot be craving for war and not have war. I contend that tho principles of right and Justice are eternal and can be depended on. If we can trust God to see that our dollars are paid, I think we can trust nia to make good Ills declarations that rlshteouiness will exalt the nation. WHY WOMEN SEEM P11T0L0U8. By Dr. Uttar Prank Wart. It often Is remarked that women at a rule are more frivolous and trifling than men. Where the only objects with which woman comet In contact are those of the kitchen, the nursery, the drawing room and the wardrobe, bow shall she be expected to have broad Ideas ef life, the world and the universe? Her Ideas are perfectly natural and legitimate. (Hie hat seen and haudlcd culinary utensils, china and silverware, and she has an Idea of them. la the absence of other Ideas she will think about th'esn, talk about them, hare her whole mind absorbed with them. The mind must act, and this Is all the material tt has to act upon. It Is the same of dress. Her toul It engrossed ! dress, since It Is her most Important object of experience. If you wish to make her forsake It you must glre her something else to think of. Olre woman an Interest In great subjects and she soon will abandon small ones. If she knew as much about tho great men of history or of her own age as she does about her neighbors she would cease to talk about the latter and talk about the former. Teach her science, philosophy, lnw, politics, and you will do much to put an end to gossip, slander and fashion worship. BEWARE OF APPLAUSE OF THE 010WD. By PrtalitHt Butttr of Columbia. 1 -g A most persistent tnemy of sound stand n ards Is tho tendency to delight In the ap 17 plause of the crowd and In the acclaim of 1 the unthinking, tho Immature and the III B Informed. More than one leader of men, past and present, has been led astray by the JL strong temptation which this tendency offers. p Sometimes one almost feels that the WaWmJ noisiest policy passes for tho best, and that that which Is at the moment the most poputar Is general ly held to be the wisest. This confusion Is the chief danger to which democracy Is exposed. What men want often contradlota what men ought to have, and to bring tho two luto harmony Is the supreme task alike of edu cation and statesmanship. Not the clamor of the crowd, however angry or how ever emphatic, but what Sir Thomas Browuo quaintly called "the Judgment of the Judicious," Is the true stand ard of merit. To It we must constantly and hopefully and resolutely repair. Wo should never for any reason bo tempted or cajoled or frightened Into deserting It. ORANSKOTHEK.

MHMa&iaarFifTiB'sMia KVKaaBW al aBRjiiftw HiBbtJ iVWWA "So you want to marry my daugh ter?" said the banker, eying the young man steadily. "I do, sir." "Do you love hor?" "More than life," was the emphatic reply. The banker thought for a while. "Lot us seo," bo finally said. "What are your prospects? You are poor, but come of a good family. You hare In telligence, honesty and ambition; and you are now working at a salary of fifteen dollars per week as assistant to Mr. Stewart, the cashier. How can you expect to support a woman who has been used to luxury all her llfo on a sum so small?" "I didn't think of marrying at once, sir. I would work hard, and be willing to wait until I could advance myself to a better position In the bank." "And do you suppose a girl like Gladys would engage herself to you, and wait years for a husband, while (hero are plenty of eligible young men among her acquaintances?" The rich man spoko mildly, but War ren Lewis detected a sneer In bis tone. Uo hastily arose, "Then you object, sir." ho said. "I certainly do. I niny as well tell you now that Gladys will marry Mr. 3tevarr. Ho Is tho man I have picked out for her, and thoy think a good deal of each other. So return to your work, Mr. Lewis, and let us hear no more of this presumptuous nonsense." Wiirren went hack to his desk, un happy mid dloappolntcd. Ho was sure that Gladys loved him, and Mr. Wilson had always treated him so cordially when bo called at his house that he hoped no objections would be offered changed. Still ho determined to tee Gladys, and ask her if she wot awaro that her father wanted her to marry Mr. Stewart. Ho railed on her that evening, and came at once to tho subject nearest bis heart. "Gladys, do you know that your father wishes you to marry Mr. Stew art?" ho nsked. Sho colored and looked confused. "Yes," sho answered. "Hut you don't Intend to accept him?" "Yes," she said again. "Tho matter was settled by my father long ago." For a moment Warren could not speak. That tho girl ho loved and trusted could have deceived htm wns hard for him to credit, yet sho herself admitted tho fact, and ho was com pelled to believe It. Warren Lewis was one of tho men In whom honor Is placed nbovo every oth er consideration. Ho despised any thing like deception, and n wave of anger swept over him. "Well," ho said, "I suppose I am not the first man who has been fooled by a deceitful woman. I am glad I have discovered tho fact, though how you expected to profit by such conduct I can't Imagine. A woman who bo far forgets her womnnllness as to trifle with a man who loves her Is not worthy of his thoughts. I wish you good-evening, Miss Wilson." Aa Warren turned nway the girl made a step forward and appeared to bo about to Hjioak ; but before she could do so ho had gone. He went straight home, and alone In his room struggled hard with his grief. When ho returned to his duties at the bank on the following morning, beyond a slight pallor, there was no outward Indication of the ordeal be had passu! through during the night. But It was a torero blow to the young man, none the less. He had loved Miss Wilson almost from the first day he had met her, yet realizing the social gap between them, would never have presumed to address her bad she not given him unmistakable encourage ment. After that he trusted her Im plicitly, and the discovery of her du plicity was overwhelming. Ho was destined to have two more surprises within the noxt few days. The first enmo In tho shape of a tele gram announcing tho death of a near relative who had loft htm a large for tune. The bank president congratu lated him on his good luck, and re marked that he supposed Warren would not care to remain longer In the position he now held. "I do, though," said the young man. "The cbango In my fortune will make no difference In that line. I desire to get a thorough training In the banking business, and shall go on Just as If nothing had occurred to place me above the need of working that Is, If you care to have me stay." "Most assuredly I care," sold the banker, heartily. "I'll seo to It that you are advanced at rapidly at possi ble." So Warren remained at his desk, and no one would suppose that be was a rich man. ino secona surprise occurred one morning when Mr. Stewart was arrest ed for misappropriating tho funds of tho bank. The Stato bank examiner had visited the Institution on the pre ceding day, and the arrest of tho cash ier was tho result. Many false entries had been discov ered, aggregating over two hundred thousand dollars, and the folly of at tempting to deny bit tbeftt In tho face of tho evidence appealed to the cashier so cogently that be made a full confes sion, gpeculatloii liad proved bit ruin day a run on the bank began. There waa a hasty meeting of the directors, who contributed all the cash they could command to save the honor of the In stitution, but It wat apparent that this would not preclude the necessity of closing the doors. Then Warren came to the rescue. "I can raise seventy-five thousand dollars In three hours," he said to Pres ident Wilson. "I'll gladly lend It to tho bank If It will bo of any service." "It will save us from ruin, my young friend," said Mr. Wilson, grasp ing his hand. "And now, In Justice, let me tell you something. What Gladys said to you the other night 1 am responsible for. t represented you at a fortune hunter, and commanded her to glvo you up. Sho has always obeyed me,. and alio did not refuse to do so this time, though sho now lies ill as a result. Come and seo her. I no longer object to your attentions to my daughter, for you havo proved yourself In all ways worthy of her." When Warren reached tho banker's house that evening ho found Gladys much Improved, a direct result of her father's withdrawal of his objections to her lover's suit ; and tho knowledge that the girl ho loved was not the treacherous woman sho appeared to be repaid tho young man for all he bad suffered, Warren's money saved tho bank. Whon the panic-stricken depositors found their claims paid at promptly at their books were presented they re covered from their fright, and many put their money back again, using their Influence to quiet the fears of others. Warren now bat a position In the bank second only to Mr. Wilson him self, and Gladys bat been hit wife for more than a year. Pennsylvania Grit Easjlaa lias ProBtable Acres, The possibilities of profitable garden ing In England are exemplified by an acre of Innd cultivated on the French system of Intensive culture, which In the last completed year Is said to hare yielded 025 In gross roturns, This probably constitutes a record for England, the nearest approach kpown to the writer being an acre of land, the property of a seedsman oa tho Great Western line between Lon don and Oxford, which hat yielded In one year flower seeds to the value of 1270. In Samoa 00 to 80 Is the average yield an acre of land planted In cocoa ; In Georgia 80 worth of eggpluntt bare been picked from a alngle acre, and pineapple farms In the West Indies often pay aa much aa 100 an acre. Such yields at theso, however, are trivial compared with that of an acre of vineyard In the Mosello wine-grow-Ing dlstlct which was sold a few years ago for nearly 24,000, and which pro duces a crop worth 2,r$00; or with that acre of land In Thibet on which grows the sacred "tree of a thoussud Images," the leaves of which yield an annual revenue exceeding 3,000 Westminster Gazetto, Formidable Word, "I suppose," told the friend, "that the letter of acceptance with which you raise the party standard, represents a great consumption of midnight oil," "Look here, my friend," answered the cautious candidate; "talk about electricity or gas as much at you like, but pleaso don't mention 'standard' and 'oil'."

July Krery body'.. '- m . London's Model Police. By Sydney Brooks. BW YORKERS who have visited London during the past twa years h.ave had an Illuminating experience. The fact that tney may not have been conscious of It merely emphasizes Us tig niflcance. Ever slnco the spring ot 1906 an official Parliamentary committee has sat to Inquire InCo the conduot of the London police. Ono knows tho phenomena that accompany such in ..iu. in Vr.w VnrV t ho Mirfitnn rush for cover on the part ot sergeants and Inspectors, the uneasiness of political bosses, and the crescendo of popular oxcltement. In London there has been nothing of all this. People were Interested In the Inquiry when It first opened. For two or three weeks the papers published full reports of the proceedings. Then when it was aeen that there was nothing sensational to be divulged, the Interest fell off and toon vanished completely. For the last eighteen months the man In the street has absolutely dismissed tho subject from his mind. When a paragrapn appeared recently announcing tho end of the labors ot the committee, It read llko a message from prehistoric tlmos, to wholly had the mere fact ot tne committee's existence dropped from the public consciousness. Tho com-mKteo was appointed to Inquire Into the conduct ot tho police in dealing with cases of drunkenness, disorder and solicitation In the streets. Every man and woman who had a grievance against the police waa Invited to forward a statement of his or her case. There aro some 17,000 policemen In tho London district. They aro charged with the duty of looking after over seven million people. They make on an nvcrago Just under 120,000 arrests a year. The materials therefore aro ample for tho production of complaints Yet from first to lost the committee received only three hundred complaints, an.l of theso only ninety-nine contained charges of misconduct of varying de grees ot gravity wore or loss definitely formulated against members ot the force. Nineteen of these came within the terms of reference and were ex haustively examined. The committee's report amounts to a careful and dlt pavslonate vindication of tho force. Harper's Weekly. INJ m sp m m Conclusions About Mars. By Professor Simon Newcomb, Ph.D T Is sometimes said that we are not Justified In Inferring the con ditions of life In other worlds from what we see on ours, be cause In each world the form of life will adapt Itself to the surrounding conditions. Now If 'on our planet we found this to be tho caso If life we-e equally abundant everywhere the argu ment would be stronger than It Is. At a matter of fact, we do not And life to flourish In the arctic regions. We aro therefore able to say from our own observation that there are conditions under which life, so far as wo can Judge from experience, will not be much It at all de veloped. It may teem that this tends to lessen our faith In the wide diffusion of any high form of llfo olsowhere, and to strengthen tho contention ot Alfred Rus set Wallace that there is no other world than our adapted to the production of life. But this Is not tho correct conclusion. The very fact that we are ablo, from comparing what Is going on In tho equatorial and the arctic re gions of our planet, to say definitely that tho former aro highly adapted to life, strengthens tho contention that under all circumstances whord the temporaturo and other conditions aro similar to those which prevail In our torrid tone, life will probably be developed on a largo scale. Of course tho cxlstenco of llfo does not Imply tho development ot a race endowed with reason. Wo cannot say anything definite on this point until the Investigators of human evolution are able to toll us Just how it happened that tho human race appeared upon our earth when It did. It seems to require a certain amount of scientific training to avoid forming on opinion when one has no grounds ot knowlodgo. But It is what the trained Investigator ot na ture must always learn to do. S3 when he Is asked whother ho belloves In llfo on Mars, the best ho can ay, In tho writer's opinion, Is that, so far as we can Infer from all tho facts and principles ot sclonce, tho conditions soem to bo unfavorable to any form of llfo unless of tho very lowost ordor, and that ho has no opinion as to whether even this ordor ot llfo actually exists. From Harpor't Weekly. Of & Noiseless Guns. By Hiram Percy Maxim. & E havo heat-it tho illsadvantases of thn noiseless sun discussed. AiTl and I might bo well to consider for a moment some ot the yV I advantages. Tho matter Is of the broadest possible Intorest aid worerore biiouiu uo conMiurrtu urumiiy, Tho defence and offence of man for countless centuries have been the striking of a blow at a distance. The early savages struck a single man power blow at a distance of a fow yards by meant ot an arrow shot from a bow. Mediaeval man ttruck a ten man power blow at a moderato distance by moans of a large stone hurled from a catapult. lu cent man struck a blow of several tons at a considerable distance by the aid of gunpowder and a metal bullet. Modern man strikes a terrific blow across miles ot space with the accuracy and precision ot a hand pointer, with mod ern high explosives and a rifled gun barrel. With a light shouldor arm, not very much larger or heavier than a robust walking stick, a man today may deal out death a mile and a half away. Having produced guns which will shoot at far aa a man can see effective ly, further Improvement in means ot defence and offence must He along new lines. The first step in tho new line was the production of smokeless powder. With this in place of the old black powder no puff ot smoke was formed at discharge, and location of position became possible ot determination only by the sound ot discharge. Tho next logical step In the line ot Improvement waa the silencing of this sound, and this has now been accomplished. Locatloa ot position has thus become for the first time In history Impossible ot de termination. The wart of the future will be wart of concealment. Engineering skill will be more than even called upon. An Invader, even though he may be the stronger In numbers, may only advance bnforo a weak defender, under concealment. Advance will be Infinitely more difficult than It over has been. In short, with the silint rifle, victory will be Immensely more difficult for the assailant to wJn, while rcpulso will be Immensely more, easy for the defender to administer. This Is vory far reaching in Its possibilities. Existing territorial occupa tion will bo more difficult to disturb. Tho weakor will hare less to fear from the stronger. Had .men had silent firearms and smokoloss powder In the past England might not have conquered the Boors and occupied the Transvaal, the Japanese might not have Invaded Manchuria and drlvon out the Russians, If Indeed the Russians had been ablo to secure their original foothold, nor the Germans have crossed the Rhine and entered France. Certainly, It seems safe to say that any means whereby the weaker ara made more nearly Independent ot the stronger tends toward the settlement ot disputed questions by pearoful means rather than by force. The silent rifle and smokeless powder of courso constitute force; but' we must have force If peace Is to be forced. It Meant a Rush. Postmaster-General Meyer, discus sing the new two-cent letter rate to great Britain, said that It would enor mously Increase the postal business, "The mall bags will fill quickly when tbts rato goes Into effect," said Mr. Meyer.
