Quite a number or*churches now have
safes in them; not necessarily to keep money in, for church funds are usually ktpt elsewhere, but for the preservation of books and records, together .with" the silver plate that'is'often of "great value. The insuring of one's life is one of those things which one Is most apt to put off. There are few, however, who postpone what ought to be the inevitable until so kite a period in life as did the tough oM smack-owner of GrimFby. When he pre sented himself at the insurance office he was naturally asked his age. His reply was 'Ninety-four." "Why, my good man, we cannot insure you," said the com pany. "Why not?" he demanded. "Why, you are 94 years of age." "What of ihat?" the old man cried. "Look at sta tistics, and they -will tell yovi that fewer men die at 84 than at any other age."— London Business. A Norwegian inventor seeks to over come the list in sailing yachts by means of a pendulum-suspended auxiliary keel, en which the mast'is mounted. The keel twings so that the pressure of the wind upon the sails has no effect on the hull of the boat, as the ballast keel is inclined simultaneously, but in the opposite di rection, and thus counteracts the inclin ation of the sail, while the boat itself re mains in its normal condition, and is only affected by the movement of the water. As the mast does not move In the longi tudinal plane of the boat, the forwardly acting force of the wind on the sails re mains as effective as heretofore, and the swinglr-g ballast keel, which is outside the boat, in no way interferes with the interior of the hull, as the only portion in connecting with the keel which is inside the boat is the osclllating-shaft. To Prevent Listing of Yachts. Chicago is poking fun at the ambitious little would-be captain the while it ad mires her pluck. Miss Mayhew is building an $8500 yacht, and has entered upon a course of study ill marine engineering. When she has passed her examinations she will apply tor pilot papers. The vessel will be man ned — or, pernaps, womaned would be the Letter term— by a crew composed, with two exceptions, the fireman and engineer, entirely of women. There is war against establishing such an unheard-of precedent as admitting women to the sacred precincts of the club, and in spite — or, perhaps, because— cf that fact no provision, either for or against such a terrible contingency, has been made by the constitution or by laws of the club- Chicago is about to have a woman cap tain on the lakes. She is Miss Stella Mayhew, and her recent application for membership has caused much perturba tion of mind among the members of that masculine institution. Woman Captain on the Lakes. "My Friends and Fellow-Citizens: It is a pleasure to come to your city. I wish to thank the Mayor, and through the Mayor all of your citizens for the way In which, upon your behalf, he has greet ed me and I wish to state that it is a spe cial pleasure to be introduced by my friend. Senator Scott, because when he gives you his word, you do not have to think about It again. I am glad to have the chance of saying a few words here in this great industrial center, in one of those cities which has felt to a notable degree the effect of the great period of prosperity through which we are now passing. Probably never before in our history has the country been more pros- The President spoke in part as follows: PERIOD OF PROSPERITY. WHEELING. W. Va.. Sept. 6.-Presl dent Roosevelt and party arrived over the Baltimore and Ohio at 8:20 o'clock this morning from "Washington. He was greeted by a vast crowd at the depot and smiled his appreciation, despite his bad ly discolored face. His right cheek was rather badly swollen and contused and his left eye showed signs of discoloration. The entire party, which embodied Secre tary Cortelyou, secret service men and a staff of correspondents, entered vehicles and were driven to the McClure House, hea-jed by a military band. Throughout the entire route enthusiasm was rife, the streets being lined with the people from Western Pennsylvania, Eastern Ohio and West Virginia. At the hotel the chief executive met a delegation of citizens of Wheeling, Introduced by United States Senator Scott. The President seemed in a very jovial humor and joked with his newly made acquaintances. He addressed an enormous crowd from the balcony of the hotel, from which he had a range of four different States. He spoke long be yond his scheduled time, which necessi tated the curtailment of the regular pro gramme. Trust Problem. President Delivers a Speech on tho WELCOMED AT WHEELING. Hundreds of pianists can play all day, and many days, by memory; and I have myself seen Von Bulow conduct Beetho ven's Fifth Symphony without a score. Chess players have visualizing memory; musicians have an auditive and a motor memory, while arithmetical prodigies may have any one of the three, as we shall note in a future discussion of the subject, or a combination of all. — Profes sor E. S. Holden. in Harper's Magazine. Many of the greatest men have had phenomenal memories. Caesar knew the names of thousands of soldiers in his le gions. A modern man of science often has a prodigious memory for special ter minology. Professor Asa Gray assured me that he could at once recall the names of something like 25,000 plants; Professor Theodore Gill can do the same for fishes. Our memory for mere words is itself much more extensive than is generally admitted. The average well-to-do child of two years has a vocabulary of some 500 words, and its father may have the command of 20,000 more. The 10,000 verses of the "Rig-Veda" have for 3000 years been accurately preserved in the memory of the Brahmins. Not one Brahmin alone but thousands can to-day recite it word for word. Thousands of Moham medans, likewise, know the Koran by heart, as all learned Chinese know their classic books. The chiefs of Polynesia can and do repeat hundreds of thousands of words in their genealogies, taking days and even weeks for their recitation. Some Phenomenal Memories. "No one can dam the Mississippi. If the nation started to dam it.its time would be wasted. It would not hurt the Missis sippi; it would only damage the popula tion along the banks. You cannot dam the current, but you can build levees and keep the current within bounds and shape its direction. Now, I think that is ex actly what we can do with the great corporations known as trusts. We can not dam them; we cannot reverse the in dustrial tendencies of the age. If we succeed in doing It, then the cities like Wheeling will have' to go out of busi ness—remember that. You cannot put a stop to or reverse the Industrial tenden cies of the age. You can control and regulate them so that they will do not harm. Another thing: you do not build these levees in a day or a month. The man who tells you that he has a patent device by which in sixty days he would solve the whole question of floods along the great rivers would not be a wise NOT DAM, BUT CONTROL. perous than it is at this moment, and IE is a prosperity which has come alike to the tillers of the soil and to those con nected with our great industrial enter prises. "Now, gentlemen, every period has its own trouble and difficulties. A period of adversity, of course, troubles us all, but there are troubles in connection with the period of prosperity also. When all things flourish, it means that there is a good chance for things that we do not like . to have flourish, just exactly as there is for things that we do llk« to have flourish, and a period of great na tional material well being unavoidably one in which human minds are turned to the way in i'hich those interested in the management of the gigantic capitalistic corporations, whose growth has been so noted; a period of the past half century flourish. We have grown to speak of cer tain corporations rather loosely as trusts, using the word in Its usual and common significance of a big corporation, usually doing business in several States at least bceides the State in which it is incorpor ated. It seems to me that dealing with this problem of the trusts (perhaps it would be more correct to call it a group of problems), we have to classify all our fellow citizens. One Is composed of those men who refuse to admit that there Is any action necessary at all. The other is composed of those men who advocate some non-effective action, or if effective, would be effective only by destroying everything good and bad connected with our industrial development. In every governmental process, the aim that a people capable of self-government should steadfastly keep is to proceed by evolu tion rather than by revolution. On tho other hand, every people that has self government must be of this fossilized state of mind which refuses to allow any change as conditions change. Now, in dealing with the problem of a change in our grreat Industrial civilization, dealing with the tendency has been accentuated to an extraordinary degree by steam and electricity and by the tremendous up building of industrial enterprises dealing with these problems. I think we must Bet before ourselves a desire not to accept less than the possible, and at the same time not to bring ourselves to a complete standstill by demanding the impossible. man, but he would be a perfect miracle Of wisdom compared to the man who tells you that by another patent remedy ne can bring: the millennium in our indus trial and social affairs. 'We can do something. I believe we can, do a good deal, but our accomplish ing what I expect to see accomplished is conditioned upon our setting to work In a spirit as far removed as possible from hysteria— a spirit of sober, stead fast, kindly (I want to ' emphasize the word kindly) determination not to sub mit to wrong ourselves and not to do wrong ourselves; not* to interfere x with the. development of the country, but at the same time so to shape our legisla tion as to regulate, if we cannot remedy, the vicious features connected with that industrial development. Now I have said that there can be no patent remedy of fered. There is not any one thing which can be done, to remedy all the existing evils. There are a good many things which, if we do them, will, I believe make a ,-very appreciable betterment of •our existing condition. BIG CORPORATIONS. "Now, the big corporations, although nominally the creatures of one State, usually do business in other States, and in a very large number of cases the wide variety of State laws on the subject of corporations has brought about the fact that the corporation Is made in one State but does almost all its work in entirely different States. It has proved utterly impossible to get anything like uniform ity of legislation among the States. Some States have passed laws about cor porations which, if they had not been in effective, would have totally prevented any Important corporate work being done within their limits. Other States have such tax laws that there is no effective effort made to control any of the abuses. As a result we have a system of dividend control — where the nation has something to say, but it is a little difficult to know exactly how much, and where the dif ferent States have each something to say, tut where there is no supreme power that can speak with authority. It is of course a mere truism to say that every corporation, the smallest as well as tho largest, is the creature of the State. Where the corporation is small there is very little need of exercising much super vision over it. But the stupendous corpo rations of 'the present day certainly should be under governmental super vision and regulation. (Applause.) "The first effort to make is to give somebody the power to exercise that su pervision, that regulation. We have al leady laws on the statute-books. Those laws will be enforced and are being en forced with all the power of the national Government and wholly without regard to persons. (Applause.) But the power is very limited. Now, ] want you to take my words at their exact value. I think— 1 cannot say I am sure, because it has often happened in the past that Congress has passed laws with a given purpose in view, and when that law has been judi cially interpreted it has proved that the purpose was not achieved — but I think that by legislation additional power in the way of regulation of at least a num ber of those great corporations can be conferred. But, gentlemen, I firmly be- lieve that in" the end power must be given, probably through a constitutional amendment, to the National Government to exercise in full the supervision and the First Day of His Tour in Southern States. V : -""' "Now, I want to draw one lesson from (he experience of some of you whom I see in the audience, who fought in the Civil War. You recollect it perfectly well, whether you wore the blue or the gray, how people who sat at lmme were dead sure you ought to do everything quickly; you, who wear the button which shows that you wore the blue, remember tfie days just before Bull Run, when all the excellent people who were at home said it was your duty to go on at once to Rich mond, and they demanded that it be done. They wanted it then within two week*. Then Bull Run came along and the move ment was the other way. and then a lot of the same men who had been demand ing at the tops of their voices that you should instantly go on to Richmond said that the war was over; it was done; noth ing more to be accomplished. You and those like you did not think so. -.The men North and So'ulh were "built of a different stuff. The war went on for years and you would not. have got to Richmond at all i£ you had insisted that you could only "We should have, under any circum stances, one sovereign to which the big corporations should be responsible— a sov ereign in whose courts the corporation' could be held accountable for any failure to comply with the laws of the legisla ture of that sovereign. I do not think you can accomplish- that among the, for ty-six sovereigns of the States. I think that it will have to be through the na tional Government. ONE SOVEREIGN REQUIRED. "Let me go back to my illustration of the Mississippi River. It took some time to build the levees, but we built them, and if we have the proper intelligence, the proper resolution and the proper self-re straint, we can work out the solution along the lines that I have indicated. The first thing is to give the national Govern ment the power. What power is given, I can assure you, will be used in a spirit as free as possible from rancor, but with the firmest determination to make big men and little men alike obey the law. What we need first is power. Having got the power, gentlemen, remember that the work won't be ended. It will be only fairly begun. And let me say again and again and again that we will not get the millenium. The millenium is some way off. But we will be in a position to make long strides in the direction of securing a Juster and fairer and more intelligent, more honest management of those corpo rations, both as regards the general pub lic and as regards their relationship among themselves. When we have the power. I should earnestly advocate that it should be used with the greatest wisdom and self-restraint. The first tiling would be to find out the facts. For that purpose it is absolutely clear that we need pub licity, not as a favor from any one corpo ration, but as a matter of right. The mere fact of the publicity itself will tend to stop many of the evils and it will show that some of the alleged evils are imag inary. And finally in making evident the remaining faults, those that are not imag inary and- are not cured by the light of day itself, it will give us an intelligent proposition as to the method to take in getting at them. NATIONAL ACTION NEEDED. "That is not new doctrine for me. That is the doctrine I advocated on the stump two years ago. regulation of those great enterprises. (Ap plause.) ZANESVILLE, Ohio, Sept. '6.—Presi dent Roosevelt arrived at Zanesville at 1 p. m. There was a crowd at the depot, who surrounded his car and cheered when he appeared on the rear platform. The President spoke a few words of greeting, thanking' the people for their kind reception and stating that he would return to Ohio at a later date. The train remained but a few moments. At the conclusion the party re-entered the train of carriages and were driven over the principal thoroughfares. The decorations were of an elaborate and fes tive order. All along the route . vast crowds cheered the President to the echo. The party was driven to the southern portion of the city, where the Baltimore and Ohio special was boarded and the trip to the South continued. "Character, which counts for the indi vidual In private life, which counts in the life of the State; character, which we want to see in our public men when they tackle the problems of the trust, or any thing else; character, which is fundamen tally composed of many .elements, but which must command .these three: Hon esty, first; I do not care how able a man is, if he is a scamp he ls a danger. I do not care how honest a man is, if he is afraid he is no good; honesty first, then courage. And those two qualities are not enough; it does not make any difference how brave a man is, or how- honest. If he was born foolish, scant will be the good you get out of him. We need then for our citizenship character; character into which -shall enter honesty, courage, and the saving grace of common sense." (Applause). CHARACTER COUNTS. fearless administration of the law, but most of all must d/pend upon having the right kind of men/ the right kind of wo men, in this 'country. We need more than Intellect; we need character—char acter x which counts most; that is what counts- more than anything else in life. (Applause.) WASHINGTON COURTHOUSE. Sept. 6.— One of the largest- crowds that has greeted President Roosevelt on his southern trip was assembled at Washing-, ton Courthouse when the. train reached here at 3:15. The President spoke briefly from the rear end ! of the car and was heartily cheered. The President said he "It is just a year ago that Ohio's great President was shot and it is an anniver sary that is fitted to make all of us think very solemnly of what the country lost in his death and what the country owed to his life. President. McKinley had be come the President of the entire country so that Ohio could claim him no more than all the rest of us could claim him; and when he died his character and his policies had so impressed themselves upon the nation as a whole, that In the broad est and fullest sense he had become the President of no party and no section, but of the people throughout the length and breadth of our nation. It ls a good thing now for us, a year after he was shot, to think of what he did and try to keep our selves up to his standard." COLUMBUS, O., Sept. 6.— In the Union depot here the President responded to calls of the crowd as follows: ory of the Martyred President.

You got there by setting your teeth and making up your mind that you were in. to see that fight through. Then you had to face defeat &nd come up again, and if defeated to try again until out of defeat you wrested tri umph. You made up your minds that you would win by the same qualities which have made good soldiers from the time that the world was young. '-'.", "The men in blue and the men In gray who fought .in the great Civil War had different weapons and were drilled in dif ferent tactics from the soldiers who fol lowed Washington and Greene and Mad Anthony. Wayne, who fought under Ma rion, who fought at Bunker Hill, ; who fought at Kings Mountain. You had dif ferent uniforms, different weapons, differ ent tactics, but the spirit that drove you forward was the same. MAN BEHIND GUN. "And now, If ever this country should be called, as I most earnestly hope and believe it never will be called, to face a serious foreign foe, the men that fight will have high power, small calibred, smokeless powder rifles; they, will fight in open order, instead of the old elbow to elbow touch; they will fight under en tirely different tactics, under differ ent cpndttions: but if they win they will win because they had in them the same stuff that their fathers had in the Civil War, their great-grandfathers in the Revolutionary War. (Applause.) "The weapon changes— the gun changes, but the dualities of the man behind the gun have got to remain the same. (Ap plause.) "It is justice in dealing with these prob lems of citizenship. The changed condi tions mean that there must be change in the laws: change from time to time in the fundamental underlying law of the land, which we call the constitution. The law now and then' has no change, but in the Ions run it is the man behind the law that counts. We need good laws; we need the very best laws; we need the best constitution, and need to amend it so as to keep it what it is— the best con stitution. But no constitution, no law will supply the place in the average indi vidual of those qualities which in their sum make up good citizenship. It is just as it is in battle. I hate, and, if any national guardsman Is here he will ap preciate what I say.I hate to see a nation al guardsman armed with a black powder der musket. I would as soon see , him: armed with a crossbow. I believe that for any man wearing the uniform, which is 'Uncle Sam's* or may be Uncle Sam's in an emergency, the best weapon is none too good. (Applause.) But if you give a man the best weapon in the world and he himself is a pretty poor sort of a creature he will be beaten by a good man with a club. (Applause.) Now it Is just so in the field of civil life. If our aver age citizenship is low, no la\«s will save us. There are other countries with al most exactly our constitution, with al most similar laws to ours, where never theless the experience of free government has been almost a failure, because the men were not the same; because they did not have the same stuff for citizenship. In the last resort It must be the high average standard of citizenship upon which we will have to' reiy in : this re public. Something can be done by law; something can be done by honest and At Columbus the President paid a touch ing tribute to McKinley and at all other places during the rest of the day, es pecially at Cincinnati and Lexington, he refused to respond at any length to the calls of the crowds at the depots. The special train was due in Chattanooga at 8:30 o'clock to-morrow morning. A slow schedule had been arranged for it. At Cambridge some one in the crowd held up a large picture of McKinley and called attention to the anniversary of the tragedy at Buffalo one year ago. This incident was looked on by all with dis favor. At Wheeling the President made the only formal speech of the day, treating of the trusts and general Industrial con ditions. and Tennessee. The receptions during the day in West Virginia and Ohio were enthusiastic but uneventful and It was nightfall when Kentucky was reached. All were asleep before they crossed into Tennessee. S£ops were made to-day at Grafton, Wheeling, Benwood. Cambridge, Zanesville. Newark. Colum bus, Washington Courthouse, Wilmington, Midland City, Cincinnati, Lexington and Somerset. LEXINGTON, Ky., Sept 6.-Pres- Ident Roosevelt and party to-day passed through the States of West Virginia. Ohio, Kentucky could not make any speech at this Urns as he proposed returning to Ohio at no distant date. - MIDLAND CITY, O.. Sept. 6.— The Pres idential train made a brief stop at Mid land City at 4:10. A small crowd that had gathered cheered the President as he bowed from the rear" platform. At Sa bina, Wilmington and several other points crowds watched the train speed by. At Loveland a large number of flags were waved as the train passed. CINCINNATI. Sept. 6.— The Presidential party reached here at 5:20 and remained half an hour. Most of the time was ?pent In the yank transferring to the Queen and Crescent tracks. The train was greeted with crowds at all of the suburban stations, and especially - at Kigrhth street, where a short stop -was made. The run from. Columbus, a dis tance of.l2C miles, was made In less- than three hours. The train was backed from the yards into the central station, where a large crowd had assembled, Including the city officials. President Roosevelt ap. peared on the rear platform of - his car and in response to calls stated that ha expected to be here on September 20 to deliver an address during the fall festival and begged to be excused at this time. The crowd contained many railroad men and the President, in addressing himself to them, stated that he was en route to Chattanooga to be with the firemen. Th« President shook hands with a number of acquaintances who pressed forward. PRAISES THE KENTUOZIANS, LEXINGTON, Ky., Sept. «.-Preslden« Roosevelt reached here at 8:43 p. m. A large crowd met him and during tha short stop he spoke a few words of ap preciation of the greeting. A brief stop also was made at Ludlow, Ky., and tha President addressed a few words to tha assembled crowd. BURGIN, Ky., Sept. 8.— The Lexington Drum Corps made more noise than has been made In the State in twenty years as the President's train drew into tha station. The train stopped first in the yards. The President told the people there that the train was to move farther on, but that Inasmuch as he might not have a chance to speak to them at the farther stopping-places, he desired to say that he had been In Kentucky before, and he appreciated to the full the .pre eminent qualities of Kentucky's men, Kentucky's women and Kentucky's horses. (Cheers and laughter.) The train moved on and the President made another speech to a crowd of 5000 at the station. He said: "Kentucky has ever borne more than her share in the heavy responsibility of the development of the nation. I wish, very much that I might go through here by dalllght. (Cheers and shouts of "Coma on round here again, colonel.") "Times change, but the spirit of the na tion does not change. Forty years ago the mer/ who fought in our great Civil War— whether they wore the blue or the gray, they fought well— were armed with black powder guns. A soldier to-day might as well— Colonel "Willams, are your State troops armed with black powder guns still?" Colonel Williams— "They are, sir. We look to you for relief." "You shall have all \I can give. "We have got the law through the lower House. If only you can help me get it through the Senate, we will be all right. The man who has a black powder mus ket might as well have a crossbow (laugh ter), but If we ever have another war, and I not only hope but I believe that wb will not in our time, we will find that the spirit of '76 and the spirit of '61-'65 lives.
