YESTERDAY saw the addition of
the forty-eighth star to the glorious
Stars and Stripes, marking the ad
mission to the union of the State of
Oklahoma. For years this territory
has been the Mecca for thousands of
the best citizens American born
and it Is no longer looked upon as
the reserve of the redskin. At the
best, the Indian will last only a few
years more. The taking away of his
wild habits and customs and the
pressure from the ever-enoaching
whites have broken his spirit and
travelers from Oklahoma tell us the
race Is dying out rapidly.

THE GADFLY ON BOOKS.
YESTERDAY the police caused
the strict observance of the Nichol
son law in Hammond. Eleven saloon
keepers were arrested for keeping
open and thirteen more were put on
the watiing list for arrest today.
Officers went from saloon to saloon,
trying doors and gaining evidence to

In front of the very station, and with
the connivance of the police so the
boys on the street: said great
charges of dynamite were put on the
car tracks. At one time as many as
thlity piles were laid on the tracks
in the one block south of Rimbach.
The noise was deafening racking
the nerves of the motormen, and
frightening the pasengers. On sev
eral cars women were seen hanging
their heads from the windows,' the
smoke being so thick Inside it
smothered them. Instead of inter
vening in these reckless disturb
ances the police were absolutely ig
noring the safety of the public, and
were enforcing the Nicholson law.
The Nicholson law may have its
merits but the flagrant neglect of
the police to protect the safety of
the public, which should have been
always foremost, should deserve the
heartiest condemnation from the

a very exotic literary weekly has
been produced in London entitled,
"The Throne" and dedicated to the
King and Queen. The pages are so
richly embellished and artistically
decorated that they recall the days
when monks labored on vellum. The
yellow parchment cover has the
title surmounted by the royal crown
in gold. The imposing list of
editors reads like a Queen's garden

In this clever work of a marvellously
Indiana in Congress.
Indiana has always had strong rep
resentation in the United States sen
ate, but never before has she been
so powerfully and so contsplcuously
represented there as at present. The
presiding officer, Mr. Fairbanks, is
from Indiana, and two of the most
influential and effective members on
the floor are also there speaking for
the Hoosier state. In the session
just closed both Senator Reveridge
and Senator Hemenway have been
publicly commended for the splendid
character of their public service. Mr.
lleveridge, in securing the passage of
the meat inspection bill and other
notable measures, added new laurels
to those previously acquired, while
Senator Hemenway. although In his
first session, proved that the great
experience he had as chairman of the
most important committee of the
lower house, could be put to practical
use in the senate. Senator Hale de
clares that by the efforts of Senator
Hemenway alone the federal govern
ment has been saved $32,000,000 at
he recent session, Mr. Hemenway's
knowledge of governmental expendi
tures enabling him to dictate a policy
cf retrenchment and economy, which
-ived millions while in nowise im
p:ilring the public service. Indiana is
to he congratulated on her represen
tatives in the upper house, and right
here it may be added that she ranks
iust as high in the lower house. In
fact, Indiana in congress today is
right at the to; of the heap. Fort
Simultaneously two Philadelph-
ians have published works which fill
a necessity, the importance of which
has hardly been adequately appre
ciated. In this clay of wonderful
advancement and development when
deplorable precocity too frequently
characterizes childhood, we should
heartily welcome books which im
part to youth requisite knowledge
of natural conditions summed up by
persons capable of teaching. "The
American Boy and the Social Evil
from a Physical Standpoint" i3 by
Dr. Robert Wilson: "What a Young
Girl Ought to Know" is from the
gifted pen of Dr. Mary Wood Allen.
iney are reverent attempts by ex
perienced persons, to instil into the
young of both sexes a knowledge and
appreciation of their bodies and the
dire results from infractions of
natural laws, subjects which par
ents too frequently neglect through
false modesty or ignorance. These
books for boys and girls will go far
towards promulgating healthy bodies
and clean minds, especially in this
era when the definition "a child" is
said to be "five years old, possibly
six" and this contains a lamentable
amount of truth,!

Guf OL UNTEERS in a war become food for powder and disease, j therla.
There is no greater folly than that of believing the volun
teer forces as we have them today are ANY USE
ALL for active service under the' conditions of modern
war. However courageous the men may be, however intel
ligent, however patriotic, their live9 would be a useless sacrifice on the
aitar of POPULAR IGNORANCE. They would impede the move
ments of the regular army and their deaths would be quite useless.
The people must be brought to an understanding of this fact sooner or
In using the word volunteer I want to be quite specific. I make a
distinction between "volunteers" only partly trained and only partly
disciplined as they exist in the ordinary state militia and "VOLUN
TEER SOLDIERS'' who have seen active service and come success
fully through the ordeal. We had "volunteers" nt Bull Run in our
civil war, for instance, but they were "volunteer soldiers" when they
had been in the field nearly four years and came to Appomattox. The
hard school of experience had MADE THEM OVER and they were
reliable. Just what war does in war time the army discipline and train
ing seek to approximate in times of peace, and the volunteer system of
the states NEVER APPROACHES IT. Under existing conditions
it never can. The remedy, and the only remedy, is the organization of
a national militia under the immediate control of army headquarters
and officered by men with the equivalent training, experience and
knowledge of an enlisted man who passes the necessary examination
AND OBTAINS HIS COMMISSION.
At least one full regiment should be raised and equipped in each
state and be subject to a discipline and training that would guarantee
efficiency WHENEVER the call to arms came. Understand clearly
that I am not in any way advocating an increa.. in the regular army. I
believe that i3 quite large enough. But what I do want to see is the
establishment of an absolutely effective and reliable second line of de
fense, and that wre can only get from a NATIONAL militia organized
and officered as I suggest. I believe that public opinion is rapidly pre
paring itself for a movement of this description, and men of experience
who love their country sufficiently to tell the truth frankly will in
dorse my view When I was in Australia last year I saw a national
militia officered and organized very much on the lines I suggest, not as
thoroughly perhaps, BUT THE "GERM OF THE THING WAS
THERE. Although the country is still young they have a fine system
of coast defense with each fort manned by a permanent garrison and
a largo force of artificers to keep the guns in order. Then they have
their SECOND LINE OF DEFENSE for that ann of the service
in a militia officered by thoroughly trained men and that militia works
hard from year to year on the guns of the fort to which it is attached.

By Rev. Dr. MADISON C. PETERS of New York
the standard of scholarship is to be raised higher in all our
schools for girls and no greater attention is paid to the laws of
health and life, GRAVE CONSEQUENCES may be expect
ed. The body is just as much God s gift as the mind, and the
one cannot be healthy and vigorous when the other is neglected and
permitted to fall into weakness. Education must always be faulty
when it lacks PROPORTION. Our women often gain their equality
with men, as it is called, gratifying their own and their parents' pride,
by the sacrifice of health. In all our schools and colleges there should
be advantages for PHYSICAL training equal to those of the men
in order that the women may have the physical qualification adequate
to their enlarging spheres.
Ignorance of physiology is one of the most costly luxuries of life,
and carelessness of health is both a crime AND A SIN. Much might
lie said of the abuse of athletics, but the sensible use of games and
sports is so important to fit us for the active work of life that we must
