A RICH MAN’S WILL.
Some comment has ls*en made cm the
fact that Senator Sawyer's will gave
practically all his estate to his own rel
atives. and nothing to charitable or edu
cational institutions. The St. Paul Pio
neer Press criticize* severely thin dispo
sition of the pro]<erty. saying that any
man who ha* accumulated million* by
living the first to take up and turn into
money the natural wealth of the coun
try should tie under a moral obligation
to return a part of it to the public who
helped him to fortune. This is true.
But the Pioneer Press failed to note the
generosity of Mr. Sawyer during his life
time. Some men of wealth prefer to
retain everything they make during
their life-time for their own use, and
then jierjietuate their memory by en
dowing a college or hospital by a gift
payable after death This generally re
sults in the donor's name appearing on
a marble tablet, or being made and kept
public in connection with the institution
endowed, at the cost not of the giver in
his lifetime lint, of his heirs after his
death. As the heirs have- not accumu
lated the wealth, they have no reason to
complain of the disposition of it in any
way the testator may see lit. But the
credit to him is scarcely so great as if he
had made the gift when it involved some
sacrifice to himself. Senator Sawyer gave
away thousands of dollars every month
for many years Me hel|ied struggling
colleges, though he was not a college
man himself. He heljied charities, or
ganized and unorganized, public and
private. He assisted relatives and friends
almost without numlier. His benefac
tious were made not with the- idea of
placing his name with those of Girard
and Peter Cooper, hut because he in
tended to accomplish good in each in
stance. No libraries, colleges, art gal
leries or hospitals are named for him.
because lie did not make that a condition
of any of his gift* But the gifts were
made, and the good was done. It is
hardly fair to criticise him lieeause he
did not confine hi* charity to one oi two
large legacies, wjth Ins name attached,
'(’he secret giver is snrch as meritorious
as he who heralds hi* generosity with
hind self acclamation.
Thk past week has marked another
turn in th Month African war. The

The Two Rivera Chronicle takes the
Milwaukee Journal to task for calling it
a populist. The Journal has got into the
habit of throwing around the term popu

primarily to convey the idea of any one
who is not a gold-democrat. It calls re
publicans by that name whenever the
fancy suits. Probably that's the reason

Thursday and Friday brought news
of the final retirement of the Boers from
around Bloemfontein. They did not de
stroy the waterworks which they wen
in jm,-.session of so long. Wepener was
also relit ved by the general withdrawal
to the north. This movement left Rob
erts's line of communications open and
tin threatened to the south. Though ef
forts were made to intercept and cap
ture detachments of the Boers, they all
gut away safely with their guns and
munitions. The London war-office had
a message from Mafeking in which Col.
Baden Powel said the garrison was hold
ing out well. Though the Boers were
ultimately driven hack from their Free
State invasion, they succeeded in caus
ing much delay to the British and in
flicting large damage on them, and in
getting away with pi actu ally no loss to

Sunday brought no news, the censor
apparently being at work again. The
withdrawing Boers were thought to Is- |
concentrating at laidybv■and, and to
have a good start over their English
| pursuers. The tone of the Herman

Vcs, August Flower still has the larg

world. Vour mothers, and grandmoth
ers' never thought of using anything else
for Indigestion or Biliousness. Doctors
were scarce, and thev seldom heard of Ap
pendicitis, Nervous Prostration or Heart
failure, etc. They used August Flower
to clean out the system and stop fermen
tation of undigested food, regulate the
ration of the liver, stimulate the nervous
and organic action of the system, and
that is all thev took when feeling dull
