Baltimore News: With the passing of Fort McHenry as a military post as sured by a definite statement from the war department that on March 31, 1907, It will be abandoned as a post, there is still ground for hope that the his toric old fort will retain, to some de gree at least, its present aspect. It Is the intention of the war department to make the fort a sub-station for Forts Armistead and Howard, down the river, merely leaving a corporal's guard at the local fort to care for the stores that might be left there. There is perhaps no more noted fort on the Atlantic coast, and while the flagpole that bore Old Glory, which ill 1814 in spired Francis Scott Key to write The Sta£-Spangled Banner, ha* long since disappeared, another staff flings the Stars and Stripes to the breeze from the same spot and forms a mec ca for many tourists. With the government claiming that, as a military P9st, Fort McHenry Is of no use except, possibly in an emer gency during the civil war, when it was used as a military prison and storehouse, it is possible that the city of Baltimore may offer to take over the historic post, giving the govern ment the privilege of using it in times of emergency. It is along such line that the state militia is working. Col. E. L. Woodside, assistant adjutant gen eral of the state, has been in communi cation with the war department, and' only recently he has been assured by the war department that the naval reserves can have the use of the fort as a barracks and parade ground. The de partment has also granted permission to the reserves, to. use the rifle range when it would not conflict with the regulars. With the last of the regulars leaving the fort next March} the militiamen want the entire fort turned over to them. The park idea can also be car ried ojit and tfye public continue to have the privilege of rambling over the historic ground as it pleases. All through the past summer the public has been given the greatest lib erty at the fort. The old gateway, across whose paved footway a sentry has steadily paced since 1794, is now open, to all. The walks, kept as neat as those of the city parks, are thronged on Sundays with thousands of visitors. The old cannon that belched flames and shot in defense of the city in 1814, when the fleet of Admiral Qpckburn bombarded the city, now forms the backgrounds for groups of friends as the kodaker snaps his shutter. Even the big cannon, mounted so as to sweep the harbor approach, are not forbidden ground. Sightseers lazily lounge against them, and the children play hide and seek among the intricacies of the gun carriages. Fort McHenry embraces about thir .tj^-fiVe acres of ground. It was first occupied as a military camp as early as 1775. It was 1794 whert it was made a permanent military post and received its present name. Not since the days preceding the civil war has it been taken seriously In the active defense schehie of the Atlantic sefi.boa.rd. Year by year -its garrisons have dwindled until this last order will take away its very name as a .fort. '. Use of Profane Language. New Orleans Times-Democrat: Unv less something is done to check the evil, Americans must soon become known as the most foul-mouthed per sons on earth. It will first be neces sary to determine the cause of the use of profane language before any real cure can be applied. One cause Js un doubtedly the lack of sufflci&iJ^yo cabulary to express one's thoughts, r'or what he conceives to be his thoughts. It is this faulty vocabulary that in duces females to describe as "awful" things entirely disassociated with any feeling of awe and as "funny" that which is merely odd. The male, with iiis greater freedom of speech, uses an oath to express the same idea, which is not an idea, but merely a futile at tempt to express that which is not conceived and which consequently c&n not b$ adequately expressed. Denatured Alcohol. Cleveland Plain Dealer: Specula tion as to the practical benefits to be conferred by the enactment of the free alcohol law by the last session of con gress becomes more active as the time for the law to go into effect approach es. The internal revenue office is be ing deluged with inquiries for infor mation relating to the production and uses of denatured vegetable alcohol and the farmers of Ohio and Pennsyl vania seem to be conspicuous in the search for pointers. Department of ficials estimate that the new law should increase the receipts of big corn growers by from 50 to 100 per cent. Moreover, the process of dis tillation does not destroy the value of the corn as food for cattle and hogs and after the alcohol is extracted the farmer will still have the mash to feed to his stock. uih,* Colored Inanities#.

HOW HAPGOODS HELPS* Without danger to your present onnootions we assure you of coniUU-ration for every position you are competent to fill 110 Si!**)- The answer made by the old court attache was: "An attorney who prac tices before a court cannot afford to incur the ill will of the judge an at torney cannot afford to lose a case any oftener than he can help, for on his success depends his reputation and chance of better success in the future. He must defend a prisoner when ap pointed by the court to do so and he must win the case ii he can. As a result, some of the hardest foufcht cases in the criminal caurt have been conducted by young and ambitious at torneys who were appointed by Judge Wofford to defend a negro thief or other offender. The judge appoints the attorneys who frequent his court according to their ^urn. Judge Wofford smd the other day: "1 have fallen into the habit, after having been on this bench so long, of always being with the updar dog. So many friendless, penniless, God-for saken wretches come into this court with no one to hdlp them fight the penitentiary that I" can't1 help being on their side." Judge Wofford is very careful, too, when a poor prisoner comes before him and pleads guilty to a criminal charge. He causes the prisoner to stand up and then asks: "Do you understand that you are about to plead guilty to a crime that will send you to the penitentiary?" Sometimes Judge Wofford will not let a prisoner plead guilty, but makes him stand trial. He will let no one plead guilty to a charge of murder. The other day .a negro was before him to plead guilty to a charge of assault with intent to kill. Judge Wofford questioned him closely and the rtegro told a straightforward story of a fight in which he had shot another negro, but had not wourtded him dangerous- "Why," Judge Wiofford said, when the negro had finished his recital, "If what you say is true, your«re not guilty of any charge at all. You shot me ed hut I am not going to let you that he had not been the aggressor but had shot In self-defense. Tagged Salmon.

The Missouri law provides th£t every person shall have an attorney when arraigned in, court on a criminal charge. Yet the law makes no provslon for paying the law yer. The judge of the court appoints an attorney to ctefend the penniless prisoner and the attorney conducts the case without pay.
