"Brighten some one else's life. Cheer some one else's pathway every day. This Is the best Investment that any of us In this world can ever hope to make." We won't repeat tho name of the man who said It. He luus an nounced that he Is going to seek ob scurity henceforth. Moreover, thero are so many other people who both live as he does and talk as he does that It Ifl not necesaary to draw the moral upon the particular man, "Brighten some one else's llfeA That is mo. st excellent advice. It Is good old-fashioned morality, Just as good to-day as It ever was, and Just as good for the future as for to-day. However, In the sense In which it Is used, It Is very Imperfect, very partial advice. A little active work In brightening some one else's life by direct personal efforts needs to be supplemented more to-day than over before by Indirect methods of brightening other people's lives, especially through restraint from creating conditions which have the op posite effect. For many citizens, and especially for those who glvo the "brightening" advice moat freely, tho J n direct methods of self-restraint are vastly more Important socially than the other.

To one life that he brightens directly there are thou sands that he darkens indirectly. The new morality will take full account of such facts at their proper value. COMMUNICATISQ WITH MARS. Certain astronomers have lately been talking and writing with much serious ness of the possibility of communicat ing with the inhabitants of Mars. They have no doubt that the planet is Inhabited. An American in Ger many has lately indulged in some ad mirable "fooling" on the subject in a communication to Science. He writes that "It Is well known, even among astronomers," that as the orbit of the earth pisses between the sun and Mars, the dark side of the earth must at regular Intervals be turned toward Mars. He suggests that as a hole through the earth would permit the passage of the light of the sun at such times, mossagos might be sent to Mars by the Morse code, if proper apparatus were adjusted for Interrupting the rays of light. The correspondent ad mits that such a hole would have to be several miles In diameter, but says that many of the details aro already settled, "Including the spot whore such an opening might best be made in the Interests of mankind generally." Ho leaves us to conjecture whether tho spot Is under the residence of the Kaiser or the Sultan, or under the ob servatories of the sensational astron omers. ALL THE ADVANTAGES HOME, ETC. OF Were one to Inquire into the rela tion of nature study to the Increasing number of people who "camp out," It would bo hard to say which is cause and which effect, but It is certain that the two have developed simultaneous ly within comparatively few years. It was not very long ago that camping out was regarded as a mysterious di version In which the male members of the family found a qulto Inexplica ble pleasure. Then mother and tho girls tried it for a season, and since then they have understood. To-day, It one turns the advertising pages of the magazines In spring and early sum mer, one finds long lists of summer camps for boys nnd summer camps for girls, and all of them classed under the heading, "educational Institu tions." Aside from tho mere pleasure of a sojourn In camp, there are ma terial benefits which Inst tho whole year through, and nro making impor tant contributions to health and na tional character. Camp life means re ducing one's needs to their lowest terms. It conduces to simplicity of dress, food, recreation and social In tercourse. Many things commonly re garded ns necessities at homo nro found to be easily dispensable In camp. Tho valuo of fresli nlr, nt night as well ns by day, Is another whole some thing to learn, and so, (oo, '8 the primary and fundamental contact with tho raw materials of life. Many n man has realized In camp for tho first time how the most familiar vege tables look In their raw stnto. nnd how tho spoils of gun and fish-hook must bo treated to prepare them for tho pan or tho pot. Of all tho peoplo who take holiday durlrig tho summer, there aro none who como back to town more healthy, wholesome and happy than tho enmpors. By this tlmo most of thoin nro planning next year's trip. LEST WE FORGET. Dr. McComb, ono of tho Inventors of tho "Emmanuel movement," and Prof. Hugo Munsterberg, an authority on economic ami other nbstruso problem, have recently given assurances which tend to relegate two of tho most for midable foes of our modern civiliza tion to the realm of phantoms. Mc Comb says that in order to avoid j sleeplessness all you have got to do is to constrain your mind to roam about among pleasant memories nnd to for get your Insomnia. Then you will fall asleep. Munsterberg says it is a mis take to suppose that our more complex civilization Increases the nervous strain. When you are threatened with a case of "nerves" all you have got to do is to reflect how much more con ducive to repose are modern condi tions ns compared to those of the past. While technical mechanism has be como more complex, life itself is sim pler. The telephone, the elevator, the Pullman nnd the street cars save us lots of steps and trouble, while the better means of Illumination Bayes our eyes from strain. Asphalt and maca dam save our bones from jar. All this and much more is true as to tho great er ease of modern life when compared wth that of our ancestors. It may be said that they got out more- into tho open air, but this can hardly be true when we consider tho parks and boule vards of our cltlts and the better country roads. Modern buildings on the whole are certainly better venti lated and more sanitary. Food Is more varied, abundant and wholesome. Why, then, shouldn't wo treat our "nerves" as Illusions and go to sleep when we want to? That there was Insomnia several hundred years ago can bo proven from Shakspeare. His apostrophe to "nature's sweet restor er, balmy sleep," must have been writ ten by one who had fathomed tho agony of sleeplessness. And his ac count of sleep-walking hysteria in "Macbeth" is quite In line with mod ern neurological science. When we are nervous and hysterical and wake ful we can make up our minds that It is something personal and faulty In ourselves that has upset equanimity and murdered sleep, not the spirit of the age In which we live. And doubt less the best advice Is Dr. McComb'a advice, to "forget It." EAGLETS. Benjamin F. Rlcholson, the able and popular attorney for the West Park Board, has earned by his long nnd brilliant record an election to tho Su perior Court bench next year. Harry Rubons, the brilliant and well known nttorney and public-spirited citizen, Is a man whom Chi cago takes pride In claiming as one of her prominent men. In City Attorney John R. Caverly the people of Chicago have an official who Is faithful at all times to their best interests. Andrew J. Ryan, the popular and highly esteemed lawyer and former city attorney, would easily be elected Judge of the Superior Court next year If he would accept a nomination. A summer garden that is close to n police station must be a star. Judge Joseph 'A. Uhllr's good record on tho Municipal Court bench Is In keeping with his record in the City Council. lie is one of tho ablest Judges In the now court.

KlngTthowell known law yer, is being urged by his big army of friends to become u candidate for Judge of the Superior Court. Ills nomination would result in his cer tain election. Judge Frank Baker has gained by his long nnd faithful record on tTie bench, a high place in the estimation of the people. There Is no harder working or bet ter liked public official In Cook Coun ty thnn A. R. Porter, Clerk of tho Appellate Court. No better man can be elected to the Superior Court bench next year than Homer E. Tlnsman, the popular lawyer and former nlderman. William J. Prlngle has made a splendid 'record for himself as alder man from the Third Ward. He Is an able, aggressive and popular public offlclal. One of the strongest and most pros perous bankB in Chicago is the North western Trust nnd Savings Bank. It has for president John F. Smulskl, tho popular nnd well known" former Slate Treasurer, nnd Its directors are men of high standing In the commu nity. Albert G. Wheeler has earned by his clean and brilliant business career tho confidence and highest esteem of the people of Chicago. During August, 1900, tho Chicago Telephone Company put in 2,982 city and 788 suburban telephones, against 2,747 city and 087 suburban In August last year. Tho total number of tele phones In tho city Is now 195,744, as compared with 173,472 a year ago, and 59,925 suburban, as compared with 48,441 a ycar.ago. The total number, city and suburban, is 248,669, an in crease for tho year of 20,750. August Lenzen, the well known wine merchant at 42 La Salle street, has built up a splendid business for him self by his honest and upright busi ness dealings. Henry J. Kolzo is going to make his Electric Park, at the corner of Irving Park boulevard and Northwest 04th street, one of the largest and most beautiful pleasure resorts in the coun try next year. Tho present park Is all that one desires, but it has been so successful this year that the popular foimer County Commissioner knows that to accommodate the big crowds next year tho park must bo enlarged, and ho Is going to spare no expense In making It ono of the best in America. A stringent state law is needed to rcguluto tho establishment of banks. There are, too many wild-cat financial schemes now in existence in Chicago. Not wishing to compete with tho big banks, Irrcsiwuslblo peoplo are starting up Biun.11 banks In the outlying districts of Chicago, from tlmo to time. This practlco 1ms hud disastrous results upon tho business and financial Inter ests of tho entire city. Muny hundred small business men and traders have been ruined by this class of Institu tions. This nefarious practlco should be stopped nnd the only way to stop It Is by municipal legislation. A provision ought to bo mndo In the city charter authorizing tho city under Its pollco power to regulate tho estab lishment of banks and creating In pursuunco of this work a board for tho examination of all proposed new bunking concerns. Such a board should bo given ample power to exam ine Into tho financial standing o; the promoters of theso Institutions, and none should bo allowed to bo licensed unless such ns could show assets ample for tho carrying on of their business, sufllclent to cover the amount of their deposits, and sound nnd substantial enough to thoroughly protect their depositors. Thero can bo no question as to the right nnd the justice of tho rlty to exerclso such power under a properly constructed charter provision. If the city has the right to regulate plumb ers, to regulate engineers, to regulate the elctrlcal business, to regulate pawn brokers and the scores of ether busi ness enterprises ana industries over which It exercises unquestioned super vising powers, It certainly has a per feet right to regulate the banking busi ness, which Is, of far more Importance thnn anything In the line of business In tho city, because upon the legitimate nnd honest business methods of these Institutions depends the welfare of the entire city In Its business and commer cial life. wtjIIc methods of a contrary kind Indulged In by small, Irresponsible speculative concerns only results In failures that Involve Injuriously the In terests of the entire community, now often have we seen It, that the failure of one of these little banks, started upon Insecure and Irresponsible founda tions, nnd bootnod by fraudulent and false representations, bare dragged down to ruin hundreds of good, hard working, thrifty and deserving dtlsens. The licenses Issued by the examin ing board, which, of course, should be composed of responsible dtlsens and able financiers, should be of a charac ter that would be absolutely prohibi tive of all schemes and projects for the establishment of phony concerns of this kind. This would be welcomed by all sound nnd responsible banking bouses, whether private or national. Banks like the Hibernian Banking Association, the Graham ft Sons, the Union Trust Company, the South Chi cago Savings Bank, the Commercial National, the Continental National, Drovers Deposit National, Illinois Trust and Savings, the Fort Dear born National, Northwestern Trust and Savings Bank, National Bank of tho Republic, State Bank of Chicago, nnd othor banks that have weathered every panic" and every storm for years deserve well of the people of Chicago. And yet foolish people pass them by nnd hand their hnrd-carncd money over to concerns that' have not a single banker connected with them and whose loading men havo been grafters either In political or private life, and who al ways have their bands out for easy coin.
