Items Gathered in From Far and Near Money Needed to Raise the Maine. From the Washington Star. Another hitch occurs In raisins the Maine out of the mud of Havana har bor. Sentimental and commercial rea sons urge that the wreck should be removed and the bones of brave men probably resting in the hulk recovered and given honorable interment The neglect of this historic ruin is a na tional reproach, and the wreck Is an Impediment to navigation as well as an eyesore. The present hitch is because of an inadequate appropriation for the work of removal. The Loud bill authorized the secretary of war and the chief of engineers of the army to proceed with the work and appropriated $100, 000. Gen. William L. Marshall, chief of engineers, reports that the sum mentioned is not sufficient for the construction of coffer dams, which work is preliminary to the raising of the wreck. , This matter of the raising of the Maine is an example of the cumber some process of legislation. The peo ple of the United States overwhelm ingly desire that this work be done. Cuba also wishes It The cost of the undertaking is by no means burden some. The bill went through the sea ato in March and' was passed by the house in May. Only four members members of the house voted against it. ' This was the result of years of agitation In behalf of a project which THE SONG OF JOYOUS CHILDREN "A child-world, yet a wondrous world no less - To those who knew its boundless happiness." .' There is something about a child's voice that brings the smile 'and tear into close harmony. Last night when the hundreds of childish voices shrilled Into unison it might bave furnished inspiration for a great poet. ..Such of us as believe' in the ultimate success of democracy, those who have hope In the generations to come, faith in the yet unborn, had a thins to think of.f A few years and with the turn of the earth; about the sun these chil dren will have taken their place In the ranks of those who toil in the galleys some happy, some bowed down with the responsibilities forced too soon upon them. Some will have gone their way, the prey of tuber culous milk or dlptherla, leaving behind them the few little trinkets and playthings which make up the child-world. The strains of Benolt, "Into the World were floating out into the night. A crowd of loafers from the streets had gathered at the door of the Coliseum. Scoffing words of ribaldry had been upon their lips but a few moments since. But as they peered through the glass partition the jesting stopped and one said in a husky whisper; "Sh , It's the kids." The man could not have put Into more eloquent tones his feelings and the lost ideals that it called up in him. Almost all the honor of his manhood had Jong since been mired with what we are pleased to call the benefits of "civilization." - But in one breath he summed up past memories "And, then, there was a cherry tree. We all And severally will yet recall From our lost youth, in gentlest memory. J The blessed fact There was a cherry tree." : All the freshness ' and joyousness of spring; the purity of small 'children; the tenderness of a mother's love; the old house now deserted t or fallen into other hands. All that. If tomorrow is to be better than today; if the next hundred years are to tell the story of success of right; if this nation is to keep pace with other peoples and the old order is to be vanquished by that which is new tell us how? Must It be done by the slaughter of ideals, must the world continue to make its progress by the crushing out of all that is good in men? To what end? Such was the song of joyous children. This town has done well In giving them training such as they have received at the hands of Will Earhart. And Will Earhart will reap his reward. No child can learn from him anything but the highest ideals, the con tempt for all that Is ugly, the fine associations that cling to the memory of good music. For into the songs of the masters are written all that is noblest in life. And it will come back to this country on the battle field and in the home transformed in the finest courage that bred of sensibilities above the clay and dross of everyday life. The town owes a debt to Will Earhart. The song of the children has entered into every household from whence it will bear fruit. nearly everybody favored and few op posed. Congress should promptly increase the appropriation and let the good work proceed. Washington Wrote It. From the Rochester Post-Express. "Alexander .Hamilton wrote Wash ington's farewell address," ' says - the Springfield Republican. We challenge that able' newspaper to prove the statement The address was long in preparation; it was rewritten over and over again; Washington took counsel with several advisers, with Hamilton more often than with any other, and Hamilton certainly made additions, corrections and suggestions, some of which were adopted and some of which were rejected, but if there is any evidence which justifies the asser tion that Hamilton wrote It that evi dence has escaped our careful searcj. Progress. From the Milwaukee Journal. And the next thing we know there'll be June roses and young folks will be getting married. And it was only the other day that we were facing the big snow. The Race. From the Duluth News-Tribune. New York's race tracks are being transformed into suburban home dis tricts. Both promote the race, with a difference. TWINKLES BY PHILANDER JOHNSON.

"How does it happen," said the young woman' in the library, "that Lord Byron is the only poet you read?" - "Well," replied Mr. Lobrow, "I once won a bunch of money on a horse by that name, and I thought it was up to me to get acquainted with my mas cot." SSsaesassBBaaeBl "It doesn't alius take a very big man to make a heap o' disturbance," said Uncle Eben. "Sometimes you kin smash a fine piece o machinery by droppin a rusty nail into it" They say. Yet we have enough to eat Each day. " Are our plans for toil or mirth Upset? Has the comet hit the earth? NOT YET! Though grafters have been rash And bold, There are heaps of honest cash, We're told. Are we sold out on the spot For debt? Has the country gone to pot? NOT YET! . Candied Flowers. - Rosebuds boiled in sugar and made into a preserve are eaten by Arabians, while in China candied rosebuds and jasmine flowers are equally popular. The common yellow lily that grows in marshes and ponds is utilized by the Turks as the main ingredient of an agreeable conserve. Candied vio lets are very common in France, while in Roumania and Bulgaria many flow ers are used for flavoring. SPENT A FORTUNE ON SKIN TROUBLE But Lost All Hope of Cure Grew Worse and Worse in Spite of Many ' Doctors and Three Years of Hos pital Treatment Inflammation Made Her Almost Crazy with Pain. CURED BY TWO SETS OF CUTICURA REMEDIES Heart to Heart Talks. By EDWIN A. NYE. Copy.&ht, 1908, by Edwin A. Nye WHAT IS CIVILIZATION? The other day the dispatches told an Interesting story a beat rha aeroplanes circling aremnd the sphinx and the pyramids la Egypt. Whereupoa the editor of a Ne York newspaper wrote a two column editorial about the advance of civiliza tion since the days of the building of the pyramids. Certainly ft is a long cry from the sphinx to the flying machine. W do net know what purpose that Inscrutable face of stone half buried in the sands was meant to serve. Nor do we know how the pyramids were built at a time when there was no steam or electricity, no derricks to lift the vast stones and no dynamite to blast them out of the quarry. We only know that great swarms of slaves lived and died at the task. We have made great progress since the day when some master imagina tion saw in his vision the contour of tbat great stone face that for centuries has looked out over the desert sands. But how? True, we have taken great leaps in the matter of transportation and loco motion. But what boots it tbat we can boast of our flying machines or of an ex press train that goes from Chicago to New York in eighteen hours? Is that civilization? What is civilization? Our booUs od economics say thnt civ ilization consists In the organization of industry, the accumulation of wealth, dispension of thrift, inrention. etc. what the New York, editor says. But a great Frenchman told us a hundred years ago that these things were but the civilization of the ant bill and the beehive. The ants and the bees organize in dustry, accumulate wealth, dispense thrift and. what is more, they organ ize governments and maintain law and order. No; these things of which we boast are only the indices of civilization sort of byproducts. Civilization is more than these. It is the uear realization of the ideals of the best men and women of our day. It is more than the development of miud. It Is the development of the HEART. Civilization is that state of society where men and women FEEL as well as think. Civilization the real thing is prog ress along the' line of human brother hood. It is ORGANIZED KINDLI NESS. True civilization consists in the spirit of HELPFULNESS. If the editor wanted to compare something that really showed our progress he should have compared the pyramids with a great modern hospital or asylum or home for tbejjriendless. CROSS EYED PEOPLE. ' Strabismus is the technical name given by oculists to "cross eyes." And do you Uuow tuere is such a thing as mental strabismus? Just as ;h? v,';ui.of tbenaturaj eje !slmpaired by the detect,- i 'ttSiidn of the mind, "the mind's eye," is af fected by a like malady. j Like the cross eyed person, the vic tim of this mental disease sees a dis torted object. I know a farmer who has mental strabismus. When it rains be Is sure the crops will be ruined by the wet season, and when It doesn't rain be is certain there will be a long and dis astrous drought. I. know a merchant who suffers in the same way. It is never cold enough to sell winter goods, and It Is always too chilly for the sale of. summer fabrics. I know a lawyer who , thinks nearly every member of the bar is crooked and that - ths community never has given him credit for his ability. I know a preacher who is forever deploring the decline of religion snd the state of the church and because people do not come to hear him preach. I know a doctor who takes up your time to explain how bis brother phy sicians violate "professional ethics" and who leaves the impression that he thinks himself immaculate. I know an editor who continually finds fault with his town and the peo ple and who seldom prints a "boost" for bis community. I know a man who sees nothing good in his fellows, who finds fault with his neighbor's children and who is busy the whole summer through in a controversy with other people's dogs and chickens. I know a woman who scents a scan dal whenever sue sees two persons of opposite sex talking together alone, who is sure tbe grocer cheats her on every purchase and is always ready to surest that So-and-so is not as good as she appears to be. Cross eyed people. The cure? Natural cross eyes may be stralght euod un.d currd bjr a surreal coera-' tion that has " became' common ' with oculists. But there is no way that I know of by which uental strabismus may be cured. .' HEAL WAS VICTOR Lands the Ninth District Con gressional Plum Yesterday. BROTHER OF C. S.

I went to see a great many physicians, a matter which cost me a fortune, and after I noticed that X did not get any relief that way, I went for three years to the hospital. But ther were unable to help me there. I used all the medicines that I could see but became worse and worse. I had an in flammation which made me almost crazy with pain. When I showed my foot to my friends they would get really fright ened. I did not know what to do. I was so sick and had become so nervous that I positively lost all hope. "I had seen the advertisement of the Cuticura Remedies a great many times but could not make up my mind to buy them, for I had already used so many medicines. Finally I did decide to use the Cuticura Remedies and I tell you that I was never so pleased as when I noticed that, after having used two seta of Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Ointment and Cuticura PULs. the entire inflamma tion had gone.
