Secretary Hay added to his fame a few years ago when he said: "In all our dealings with Cuha, .we have, at all times, practiced the teachings of the golden rule." To say that the American soldier al ways fought for. liberty is a .very common expression, but it took the genius of Congressman James E. Watson to express it as it had never been expressed before. He was the star speaker at the Lojal Legion banquet the other night at Washington and paid the following tribute to he American soldier. He responded to the toast: "The Soldiers and Sailors of the Union, 1SG1 to 1SG5: '. He said that from 177G to 1S93 marked a distinct advance in the American conception of liberty. In the revolutionary war men had fought for their own liberties. In 18(51 they had fought for the liberty of men living in their own country, but in 1S9S they had advanced the constantly increasing flag of freedom and fought for liberties of men beyond the seas. "The American soldier is-invincible in war, incorruptible in peace, and, in peace and war, the embodiment of all the transcendent virtues of Amei-ican citizenship." The American soldier and sailor are teaching the world the true meaning of liberty as it is found under their own flag. The almost universal preparation for exhibits at the forthcoming world's fair at St. Louis recalls the words of the, late beloved President Mclvinley in his last public Utterance: "Expositions are the time-keepers of progress. They record' the world's advancement. They stimulate the energy, enterprise and intellect of the people, and quicken human genius. They go into the home. They broaden and brighten the daily life of the people. They open mighty storehouses of information to the student. Every exposition, great or small, has helped to some onward step. Comparison of ideas is always educational, and as such instructs the brain and hand of man." These are the opening sentences of his Buffalo address on the day before he was assassinated. Never was a greater tribute paid to the memory of Abraham Lin coln than that of the chaplain of the House of Representatives in his pi-ayer last Friday morning. He used the following words: "We thank Thee for the great and illustrious-ouls whose names guild the pages of our history and whose deeds will live in the hearts of men. We are minded today of one of the greatest in the annals of our na tion who. great in his goodness and good in his greatness, bore the sorrows of his people, east, west, north and south, through four years of civil strife and died a martyr to his convictions. Peace to his ashes and re pose to his soul. His was the suffering and ours is but an humble tribute to his memory. Help us so to live fiat men will rise up to call us blessed." Many persons are asking just; now, what are the causes of the Russo Japanese war. Frank G. Carpenter's interview with Senator Beveridge, published in Sunday's Indianapolis Journal give the causes with sun light clearness. Some day this week, the Palladium will publish a paper from the pen of one of our citizens who has been on the ground and we are sure it will interest our readers. Senator Fairbanks is exceedingly non committal on the question of his -Candida cv for Vice-President. This shows good common sense on the part of the Indiana's great statesman. It is only the peanut politician who runs after such things. The statesman studies the situation and is called when the proper time comes. It looks like Senator Fairbanks will be called. One of the lady teachers in a Massachusetts seminary sleeps outdoors every night in the year and says: "It is the most natural thing in the world to do. It is returning to natural conditions." The temperature over there may be a little higher than it has been in Richmond for the !ast two rrfonths. . St. Valentine's day came on Sunday this year, and there is a general complaint that only a few pretty missives were sold. It may be that leap year had something to do with the commercial feature and the modest inaiden did not take advantage of her opportunity. Deafness Cannot be Cured by' local application as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to cure deaf jiess, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lin ing of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube is inflamed you have a rum bling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely closed, Deafness is the result, and unless the inflamma tion can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hear ing will be destroyed forever. Nine cases out of ten are caused by Ca tarrh, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous ser vices. We will give One Hundred Dollars for any case of Deafness (caused by catarrh) that cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for cir culars, free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Toledo, O. Sold by Druggists, 75c. Hall's Family Pills are the best. INDIGENT AUTHORS ASSISTED. Will Carleton, author of Songs of Two Centuries, presided over an au thors' reading in New York the other day, given for the benefit of a home for indigent authors. Hamilton Wright Mabie, George Cary Egglcs ton, Marion Harland, and others as sisted in the entertainment. Among the letters received from authors un able to attend was a communication 21 21 UNIONfeL4BEL from one of the most famous of his class, endeared to manyreaders as "Anon." He confirmed his claim to popularity by sending a five-hundred dollar bill, with the modest inscrip tion, "Sent by one of the poorest authors." The home which benefited by the reading is situated in Tenafly, New Jersey. Nothing Equals Chamberlain's Colic Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. Dr. P. B. Spears, of Pinchard, Ala., has become acquainted with the good qualities of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and uses it in his own family and in his practice. He says: "It beats any preparation I have ever seen for all 'bowel complaints. I do not think of recommending any other, and also use it with my own children." This remedy is for sale by A. G. Luken & Co. and W. H. Sudhoff, corner fifth and Main streets. CHURCH ANNOUNCEMENT.

The presiding elder, Rev. G. A. Sissle, will preach on the evening of the 17th inst. A general invitation is extended to the public. J. E. Board, pastor. RICHMOID ART ASSOCIATION HELD A MEETING AT THE OF FICE OF SUPERINTEN DENT MOTT. COMMITTEES REPORT Progress Along All Lines List of Committees Completed Fine Prospects. The executive committee of the Richmond Art association held a meeting Saturday night at the office of Supt. T. A. Mott. Several of the members were present and some quite encouraging reports were made. Those who are giving of their time and labor to.' keep alive this move ment in Richmond are well pleased with the prospects for the coming exhibit. There is a unity of feeling and a willingness on the part of many to help the work along that augurs well. It was thought the fact that this is a campaign year and also the year of the St. Louis exposition might interfere to some extent with the interest in the exhibit, but, so far, there is no evidence that such will be the case; in fact, there was never a time in the history of the Art association when more interest was manifested and the outlook for a profitable exhibit was better. J. E. Bundy, chairman of the com- imittee on exhibit of paintings, re ported considerable work already done. A list of artists has been made up who will be asked to contribute land several splendid pictures are in view. There will be two or three new features of interest. One will be a collection of minatures, and it is hoped to get a collection of represen tative English art and also a collec tion of water colors. .-. The committee on sketches has in view a collection of work that will be contributed largely by artists who are local or Avho were formerly of Richmond. One of these is Charles Wasson, who now has a studio in Philadelphia and who has expressed a willingness to display some of his work. , The exhibit of Japanese art will be a feature of great interest. Mrs. J. M. Yaryan, who is chairman of this committee, reported by letter that a Boston dealer is .willing to send on an exhibit that will be representative and that it will be possible to se cure Ernest Fennollosa for a lecture. Mr. Fennollosa is a world authority on Japanese art and has been covered with honors by the Mikado of Japan and the savants of America. He will pass through Richmond in June en route to St. Louis, and it is proposed to have him lecture at that time. Mrs. Yaryan was authorized to ... proceed with her negotiations to this end. - Owing to membership on other committees Mrs. Walter Hutton re signed as chairman of the decorating committee. The vacancy will ' be filled later. Dr. D. W. Stevenson was chosen chairman of the committee on municipal art to succeed William E. Jenkins, who has left the city. Dr. Stevenson has accepted.

This story is told at the expense of a recently appointed supervisor of a public school in this city: One day she happened to be visiting a school where a young incorrigible was un dergoing punishment for a series of misdemeanors. The teacher cited him as "the worst boy in the school one I can't do anything with. I've tried every thing in the way of punuskiuent. " "Have you tried kindness?" was the gentle inquiry of the other lady. "I did at first, but I've got beyond that now." At the close of the session the lady asked the boy if he would call and see her on the following Saturday. A boy arrived promptly at the hour ap pointed. The lady showed him her best pictures, played her liveliest mu sic, and set before him a luncheon on her dantiest china, when she thought it about time to begin her little sermon. "My dear," she began, "were you not very unhappy to have to stand in the corner before all the class for punishment?" "Please, ma'am," broke in the boy, with his mouth full of cake, "that wasn't me j'ou saw. It was Pete, and he gave me 10 cents to come here and take your jawing." Philadelphia Ledger. HIS MOST VALUABLE ASSET. To hold a public office relating to the schools, without proper training, should be regarded as displaying as much impudence as that referred to THE SMART BOY The boy must be strong before he can be smart. The sick boy has his body to at tend to first, even though his brain goes a-begging. Scott's Emulsion gives strong healthy bodies to little boys and girls. By good feed ing and gentle stimulation it paves the way for bright and happy minds. Scott's Emulsion, then the strength of good health, then the bright developing mind- that is often the progress of a weak child. Little daily doses of Scott's Emulsion give strength to weak children and fatten the thin ones. It is peculiarly adapted to children's needs. We'll send you a sample free upon request. SCOTT & BOWNE, 409 Pearl Street, New York. by an old Jew at a meeting called to settle the affairs of , a merchant who had failed for a large amount. Tbo merchant stated the situation to his creditors that his liabilities were $100,000 and his assets absolutely nothing. 'Who owns the house in wl.ich you live?" asked one creditor. "My wife," was the reply. "And that farm in the coimtry" "My daughter." "And the store over Ihcre cn tke corner ? ' ' "My son owns that, gentlemen; and I must reiterate, that I l:ave nothing, nothing except my body, which you can divide among you."
