LEARNED Judge, speaking from his seat 011 the bettcb, recently chnracterlzed mar lingo miller certain circumstances as it ci line, lie wns not denouncing bigamy or bogus marriage, either. The circumstance In this case which In his eyes made matri mony n erlnre wns the fact that the pros pective lu:sband wns earning but SO a week. "This rush ing Into matrimony may appeal to tho President of the United Stutes," said the Judgo "but I am not going to encourage (he cilmc of matrimony by making a husband whose earnings are but 0 n week go out and steal to support a wife, because ho can barely support himself on the 0." The court therefore refused the application of the wife's lawyer to allow her 2 a week out of the bustmnd's earnings. U held that the wife must go out and earn her mui living, for If she lived with her hus band he would almost of necessity become dependent upon public t'.nrlty. This Is re.ther n radical position for a court to tako Most Judges, If they could not see the way clear to com pel tW husbnnd to pay the wife one-third of his Income, would advise the couple to get along peacefully aud make the best they could of a bnd bargain. But here the inference of the court's ruling Is that, the couple should separate and each go his or her own way, as before marriage. I'roliably he had a view to the welfaro of posterity. What kind of a chance woutd children have la a family In which the total Income was but $0 a week? In the primitive days of our grandfathers and great grandfathers young people married with small Incomes r no Incomes, and often brought up largo families suc cessfully. But the cost of living was then comparatively small; their wants were simple; they were content with few comforts and no luxuries; opportunities for employ meat were almost unlimited. It Is far different sow, especially in our large cities. Most prudent persons will hold with the Judge quoted, that men and women have mo moral right to Incur the responsibilities of naatrl ony under circumstances which are bound to entail pov erty, and to breed discontent and suffering rather than happiness. Minneapolis Tribune. TKS MUBSiaOVI OUtOaTXXO. F all the Indian desperadoes upon whoa sen timentalists wasted their pity the least de serving was tbe plcturesqao old Apache, Geronlmo, who died at Fort Bill the other day. It required a three years' uatlrlag, I Incessant pursuit to capture this murderer of women and children and torturer of men. Yet no soccer had General Miles, with the aid of Cap tain Lawton who was later to die on a Philippine battle field, forced the surrender of Geronlmo than a swarm of busybodles petitioned Washington to parole him. It Is Just as well that (leneral Miles was in command In Arizona at the time and was not inclined to give way Kill to a spasm of disgust He hurried to the capital aad told the story of tho Apache chief, lifted to the planes or heroism by Utile groups of men and women who, would hnve screamed for a detachment of militia If seven tramps bad appeared in their communities at any one time. The true story of Geronlmo has never been printed. It never can be printed. It would be but a record of (rightful horrors, cruelties inconceivable to the civilised man, outrages Innumerable. The territory of Arlxona for years was In nightly dread of tbe sudden descents of the Indiana ution ranch house and outpost General Crook bad iircvailed upon Geronlmo to come in from the fastnesses of the Sierras and accept a tract ofiand In the shadow of Fort Apache, but the Indian was a warrior, and not a farmer. After a few years he gath ered his young men together and itcd the reservation. Death and terror and smoking ruins were in his wake. Then General Miles took up tbe chase. At Its close Geronlmo assumed his quarters at Fort 8111, and it was tbere he died, hating the white men to tbe end, untamed, malevolent. When tbe tender-hearted sentimentalists raise him a monument some one should add these words, "and to tho memory of the hundreds of women and babes who died by his bends." Toledo Blade. THE BOYf nOX THE COBMriXLDB. mBmR ANY of the sailors on the great armored fleet I lia 1 that has completed a voyage of over 40,000 I 2 wM I i0" .around the world were born on farms. ImjBjBBssmm ,ntl nevcr Mnr BD,P or ' water until KS two or three years ago. Yet they have myP been a full working part of this historic Journey and return as effectives in the navy. On a warship the training is thorough and con Kant ami the discipline is strict The men on such a vessel are always under the immediate eye of their on cers and engaged la duties In which any lack, of atten tion or aptuess la plainly In evidence. If any one of the all teen battleships In the tleet hsd been lax In Its man agement or inferior in its crew the fact would have been manlfeat and proved a great drawback to the general success. The whole voysge has been one of remarkable smooth ness and proficiency. Everything has been done with regularity and precision under all the varying clrcum stsucea of wind and weather, and of sailing in some waters little traveled. In the wars of the United 8tatea tbe volunteers who served In tbe armies have a great record. They became soldiers quickly snd of a type never surpassed. On a warship the training la neces ssrlty more rigid aud more technical. Borne of the boys from the cornfields are now expert marksmen with that triumph in mechanics, a modern big gun. All the men on the fleet deserve high credit. But some bad marina advantages not open to the boys In the cornfield. Per haps the old sailors call them, hayseeds. But their mettle Is better known now. St Louis Globe-Democrat. A 8KATDC0 SAIL AND WIND ITJHNEl. Did you ever fly like the wind over the Ice? No? Never tried skating with sails or a wlud runner? Then there Is something left to know some thing new In senaatious. Now, Iceboats sometimes are danger ous. You can't stop an Iceboat scoot ing over the frozen surface If you chance to run up against n rift In the Ice. But you can always drop a skat- m " 8KIUMI.N0 OVEB THE ICB, Ing sail and whisk about In time to avoid a plunge into the icy water. And skating sails nro -.not hard to make. One small boy can manage ono and behind him he enn tow a long line of other boys, or grown folk for that matter, if the wind Is brisk enough. There are all kinds of skntlng sails, from the plain square anll supported on two cross sticks to the more elab orate shapes which require two or even more pcoplo to maiingo them prop erly. The doublo-dlnmoud vail Is the eas iest to make and the easiest to handle. With It one can skim over the Ice this way and that without taking any more than a steering stroke with the skates. Nor Is the sail dltllcult to make. Two yard-arms are required spruce or pine Is the beat wood for the pur pose. They should he one Inch square aud twelvo feet long, planed smooth and slightly tailored at the ends. Theso euds are lashed together with linen lino, and at each foot coIIh of more linen lino should be wrapped around tho sticks to give thein Htrengtb. Two feet six Inches In from the ends small holes arc bored In the sticks nt tho Inside to reecho tho ends of plus that project from the blocks, which are lashed faat to the cross m- vertical sticks. These blocks are three Inch and a half long and are attached to the middle of each upright. Theso blocks serve a double purpose. They hold the ynrdnnnsNtpnrt, and tho plus that project Into tho yard arms In turn hold the vertical sticks securely In position. These sticks aro live feet six Inches long, three-quarters of nu Inch square and are slightly tapered at tho cuds. When the yard inns have, been sprung apart and tho .cross-sticks lot Into place tho middle of tho framework Is bound with a strap which draws the two sticks down sgalnst plus set nt both ends of a block, aud which In turn slip Into holes mndo at the Inside edges of tho sticks. Tho sails nro one yard square, mndo from uuhlcacbed muslin, and hemmed all n round tho edges to make them strong. Loops of tape nro sown at each comer, and tbe sails are lashed with strings to the ends of tho sticks and yard-arms through screw ayes driven In the wood. At the middle the sails are held to gether with a strap and harness snap, and ahould tbe wind blow too hard and the sail become unmanageable the snsp can be released so that the pres sure will be only on the two outer tri angular sheets. When using Ibis sail you stand at tbe middle with one arm over tho yard-arms, and by means of a rope on which there are several loops you can steady the sail and hold It on the wind. After a llttlo practice It will bo an easy matter to handle this sailing ap paratus, andelt will lie possible to run before tbe wind the tack Just as If one were sailing a boat. Extra heavy shoes should be worn, with straps at tho ankles, for tbero Is considerable strain on the skates, par ticularly when tacking on the wind. The wind runner Is a modification of the Ice-boat and less difficult of an amateur to make. It Is very much like a big Ice sled, with a long deck on which several ersons can He. To mako one, get two spruce planks thirteen feet long and ten inches wide. They should be not less than an inch lu thickness after being plaued on both sides. Hound -the planks off at one end and cut them away at one side at the rear ends. The cross rail at the front la of spruce and measures eight feet long and two by four Inches In thickness. Tho angle timbers are rive feet six Inches long, and aro bevelled so as to lie against the' cross timber and the first brace, to' which the plunking Is bolted. There are two braces of spruce each three feet long. Tbe rear brace Is uiado of two pieces of spruce DIAQBAU Or SKATINQ BAIL. I bolted together aud through It tbe rud der post Is passed, Shoe blocks are bolted fast across the outer ends of the cross rail audi an gle, timbers, and to the under side of these the iron shoes aro bolted fast. At the middle of the crossbar and over the euds of the planks a bench Is con structed to support the mast, which Is stepped through a hole cut In tho mid dle of the top board aud rests on tho cross rail. The bench Is fifteen Inches high, and Is untied fast at the lower edge of tho shies to the outer edges of tho planks. Hound Iron braces ex tend from the top of tho bench down to tho rail. A blacksmith will make the shoes from tiro Iron. They aro thirty Inches long and rounded up at the front. A collar of Iron Is welded on tho shanks so as to hear on the under sldo of the block. Then, when the tops of the shanks aro tin ended uuin will hold the shoes In place. Tho rear shoo or rudder Is chisel edged, and Is twelvo 'Inches long, with both cuds turned up. Tho collar ou the shank should h placed so that tho bottom edge of tho shoes nufl rudder should ho the snuio dlatmico below the deck. Tho top of tho rudder post U made square, so that n tiller will (It over tho shoulder, and can hu bolted down. Tho mast Is of spruce, dressed from a stick four Inches square. It la 12 feet long and tapered at tbe upper end. A pin driven In the lower end will fit Into a hole made In tbe cross rail between tbe planks, and with shrouds of wire that. extend from mast head to the ends of the cross rail the mast Is held securely In plaw. The boom Is fifteen feet long and two Inches In diameter. A leg of mutton sail can be cut and hemmed to measure, ten feet on the " eaSBSSSBBB" DIAQBAU OF WISID BUNNBB. mast, fourteen feet on tbe boom and fifteen feet on tbe leech. aire the woodwork several coats of paint to finish It, and get small wood en blocks and three-eighth Inch rope for the riggings.

Tbe finest minds often keep the power of "make believe," much to their own and tbe world's benefit That aucb a possession coupled with ardent enthu siasm makes demands on the nervea and strength is shown In the following anecdote, related by tbe late Moncure Danlol Conway In hla autobiography. He was at ono tlmeva pupil of that fa mous man of science, Louis Agassis. One particular lecture Agassis de voted to displaying some fossils of sau rian, newly come Into his collection. He made the subject a text for a gen eral review of the chain of reptilian life. As he proceeded, darting off to the blackboard to Illustrate, comparing tbe extinct with the contemporary fauna, he beeaino more and more animated. Hla face reddened with excitement, until at last he said: "Gentlemen, I ask you to forgive me If to-day I end the lecture at this point, although tho hour Is not out. I assuro you I have been describing theso extinct creatures until they hnve tnken on n ort of life. They hnve been crawling, hissing, dnrtlng about me. I have hoard tho crawling oud hissing until I nm really exhausted. I regret It, gentlemen, 4ut I triwt you will exeuso me."
