The ci? culation of The En terprise for the year of 1898 was 63.274. This makes the average weekly circulation 1217 Nearly one-half of these circulate in the city of Wel lington; 500 copies go to the surrounding towns. We can prove our circula tion by the invokes of paper purchased from the ti. K. Kellogg Newspaper Co., of Cleveland. The circulation of The En terprise will be larger for the year 1 899. Remember this, Mr. Advertiser, circulation is what counts. AN OBJECT LESSON. When the congress of the United States unanimously and promptly passed a bill placing the enormous sum of fifty millions of dollars in the hands of the President of the United States, "for na tional defense," the patriotic spirit of the people rang out in the nation strong and true, and from end to end of our ereat countrv encomiums UDon the stif ling of partisan spirit was commended In the press, upon the platform, and in the pulpit Nothing that the United States, as a nation, ever did was more impressive, either of the extent of the pmriuiinw, uur me tfeuei usuy ui uu ' aroused and determined people, than the passage of that historic and remarkable act Wisely, prudently, and with a care ful regard for the exigencies of the oc casion, as well as with a due apprecia tion of the great and flattering confi dence thus reposed in him, the President of the United States has administered that great trust, and there 1b none in in the land who has ever felt like ques- , tionlng the disposition of that vast sum of money, but on the contrary, a unani mous feeling that, had every thought that entered the President's mind, every motive that inspired every act that led to its disposition, been written bold and large before the country, the acts would have been the same, the disposition of the fund no different than in fact it was. For the national defense for the wel fare of the entire nation it is essential that congress should in the same spirit . now approach the subject of dealing with the revival of American shipping in the foreign trade. This is not a par tisan, nor a party, question; it is essen tially and wholly a national question a question of national and commercial de velopment For that reason it is to be hoped that neither of the great parties in congress, nor any of their representa tives, will be disposed to attempt to make party or partisan capital, either for or against measures offered for the solution of this vexed and complicated , problem. Let the same spirit that ani mated congress in placing fifty millions of dollars in the Presideut's hands, for him to dispose of as the defense of the nation required, again animate that body in reviving the American mercan tile marine, for national defense, and ine lUiure growiu uuu yeruuuueui yru- perity of our shipping will be definitely assured. Advices from Honolulu show that the annexation of Hawaii has attracted to the islands a host of new comers most of them persons of small means who might better have remained at- home. While the territory undoubtedly offers many attractive opportunities for busi ness men commanding large capital, it has very few, If any, for those lacking money and influence. Hawaii is by no means a new country. It is already well developed; its resources are under the control of men who settled there long ago, and the person who goes out expect ing to make his fortune without "taking a reasonable amount of capital along with him is bound to be disappointed. MMOMooootooootooooootoaom ; EDITORIALS. iMI0H0 00HM000 00008HH0OO Even If Cuba does elect to be independ ent, and have a Government and flag of her own, she will, nevertheless, seek close trade relations with the United States. It will be far more to her inter est than to ours to cultivate the closest trade relations. If the Cubans see this thing in this light, they can so frame their laws to to create a substantial ad vantage for American ships in their trade with the United States a conces slon, they may be sure, . that the Con gress of the United States would be sure to reciprocate advantageously to Cuba, Mrs. Alice Gorden Gclick, principal of the International Institute for girls in Spain, the only school in that country for the higher education of women, has been honored with the badge of the Red Cross in appreciation of her work among Spanish prlsioners at Portsmouth. She is a sister of Anna Gorden, so long Fran cis Willard's secretary, and now Vice president at large of the National Wo men's Christian Temperance Union. Despite the wonderful progress of the United States during the nineteenth cen tury, tbat hundred years may be said, after all, to have been more devoted to preparation than to expansion. With a population reaching upward toward two hundred millions, with our natural resources and manufacturing skill con tributing to our own and the world's comfort, what will we be during the next century? According to the agricultural papers the farm products of the United States this year will be worth at least $1,000, 000,0000 more than in 1895. The balance of trade in favor of this country during the past two years reaches the same amount. This nation could carry on a tolerably expensive war out of its annu al profits alone. MRS. MARY K. HAMLIN. Mrs. Mary R. Hamlin, daughter of Deacon David and nannah Webster, died at her late residence on Taylor street, Wednesday, Jan. 4, 1899. Mary R. Webster was born in Otis, Mass., on July 13, 1811. She accompan ied her parents when they removed from Otis to Wellington, in 1823, the house hold goods of the family being trans ported in a wagon drawn by oxen, the journey requiring six weeks. At the time of Mrs. Hamlin's death, only three persons, so far as is known, were living, who were in Wellington at so early a date, namely, Mr. F. B. Manley, Mrs. Ann Hoke and Mrs. Jane Smith Morris. Mary Webster had not the advantages of a collegiate education, but she was fortunate in being under the instruction of a highly educated lady for many years, and she made the most of her opportuni ties. She had a bright mind, was quick to learn, and loved study. She fitted herself for teaching, which avocation she followed successfully for several years. She was united in marriage to Almanza Hamlin, of Clarksfleld, O., on May 13, 1847. Her huBband had varied and important business interests, and she, with her natural tact for business, at once became his secretary and coun sellor. Mr. Hamlin's health began to fail within a few years after his mar riage, and the burden of his affairs naturally fell largely to the cap able management of his wife, who conducted the business thuH devolving upon her, with rare wisdom and ability. Three children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Hamlin: David A., Henry B., and William. Mr. Hamlin died on January 1, 1854, and the infant son, William, died during the same year. Mrs. Ham lin remained in Clarksfielil until she had practically settled her husband's estate and then returned to Wellington.' Her eldest son, David, died in Wellington in April, 1859, of diptheria, aged ten years. Mrs. Hamlin has made Wellington her home since her return here from Clarks fleld, though she spent a portion of sev eral years with her son, Henry B in Wadena, Minn., and Knoxville, Tenn. Her failing health Induced her son, Henry, to drop all his business interests elsewhere, and, with his wife, return to Wellington in 1894. Mrs. Hamlin was a true type of the New England Puritan. She was a worn an of strong convictions and was un swerving in her allegiance to what she deemed right. She early in life, united with the Congregational Church, and until her death was a constant, faithful member of it. She was liberal in her contributions for church and benevolent objects, she was just in t.11 her business dealings, and was most thoroughly de voted to her, family and friends. She was a woman of unusual intellectual power, and bore the burdens and dis charged the duties of life, with grace, dignity and ability. During her closing years, .when her intellect was somewhat clouded, her thoughts turned to her old home in Wellington, where her father first settled, and she almost daily ex pressed a desire to go "home." She lived to a good, old age. She was the last of her father's family to go, and her friends, with loving remembrance, may rejoice that she is at last at rest and at "home." JOHN DAGNAN. John Dagnan was born in New York city, December 16, 1848. His parents re moved to Rochester, Ohio, when he was but three months old, and he has resided in Lorain county most of the time since.

M., which was held in their hall on Friday evening, January, 13, 1899, the following resolu tions were adopted: Whereas, it has pleased the Great Architect of the universe to call from his earthly labors our late brother, Sir Knight John Dagnan; and Whereas, feeling that we have lost a valued brother, we hold it but just that due recognition be taken of bis many virtues; therefore be it Resolved, by Wellington Tent No. 105, K. 0. T. M., that while we bow with sub mission to the will of Almighty God, we do none the less mourn for the brother who has been called from us so' suddenly. Resolved, that in the death of Sir Knight John Dagnan, this Tent laments the loss of an esteemed brother and an active member who was ever jealous of the order's welfare and promotion; a friend" and companion whose memory we cherish; a citizen whose uprightness of life was noble and worthy of imitation. Resolved, that we as 'a Tent, present to the bereaved widow and family-our heartfelt sympathy (In their irreparable loss: Resolved, that these resolutions be spread upon the records of the Tent and a copy thereof be presented to the family of the deceased. Also that a copy be fur nished the local papers for publication. ( W. W. Helman. Committee Bert Knapp. ( Peter Greuow. "1 SCHOOL NOTES Conducted by R. H. Kinnlson, Below will be found the, questions nsed at the last Teachers' Examination, Jan uary 7. Only eleven teachers were pres ent The number of applicants so far this year is much smaller than for the same months last year. As a rule not more than half the applictnts are successful. Lack of clear scholarship and Inability to write good, plain English characterize too many of the papers handed in for examination. But little attention is given to composi tion work In the ungraded schools. This defect should be remedied, and nothing will sooner furnish such remedy than supervision. Composition work, in all Its various phases, should be a part of the work of every pupil in every school, and teachers should take pride in direct ing such work. It is eminently practi cal. Try it.
