IJLMAH. .... COLORADO. Tho greatest successes are often founded on failure. A lie Is the acute form and hypoc risy the chronic form of the same dis ease. Some preachers make the Scripture read: "Make your calling and collec tion sure.” A man may not acquire wealth by early rising, but he can give a good Imitation of Industry by so doing. At Panama the earth to be exca vated for the canal la estimated at 120,000,000 cubic yards. Now let Uncle Sam witch the world in digging dirt. In tho controversies of tho future it will bo well for the powers to remem ber that the steel for the Italian war ships was furnished by an American Institution. Tho Japanese roll of honor contains tho names of 56,426 fighters who won distinction In tho war with Russia. With half a million horocs on hand it's no wonder that Japan isn't afraid to talk back to Uncle Sam. Italians have erected In New York j city a monument to Verdi, the grand ( old man of Italian music. This is the , third memorial which tho Italians havo presented to New York.

Doctor Forbes Winslow, an alienist, has been quoted as saying that before long there will bo more lunatics in the world than sane people. He has been misquoted, of course. What he said was that If Insanity continues to in crease at the rate shown by statistics the Insane will some time outnumber • tho sane. It all depends on tho "if.” We need not despair.

Japanese scholars are urging upon the people the importance of aban doning the old Chinese system of sign writing, or Ideocpraphs, and the adop tion of tho Roman alphabet for spell ing Japanese words, says the Youth's Companion. They support a paper devoted to the propaganda, and re port that the people are beginning to approve it. Inasmuch as English is taught in the primary schools In Japan, the coming generation will know the alphabet anyway, whether they use it in their own language or not. The Rrltish women suffragists who created a riot in the lobby of the Rrltish house of commons set a bad example to the world. It Is the bo lief of many that the influence of women on public life would be puri fying and uplifting, but when a body of petitioners bdbomes so turbulent as to call for the interference of the police and the imposition of fines for disorderly conduct, then lovely woman gets down to the level of the tyrant man. and. being on the level with him. cannot be his uplifter.—Linn County Budget.

FOR ADVERTISING CAN RAILROADS PAY IN TRANB - PORTATION? TEST CASE WILL BE MADE Ruling of Interstate Commerce Com •ion to Be Brought Before Supreme Court—Railroad Lawyers Hold That Advertising Contracts Are Good. Chicago.—The Supreme Court of the United States is to be asked to pass upon the question whether a railroad company can issue transportation in exchange for advertising in newspa pers. A test case is to be made in Illi nois, or rather an opportunity be given to the Interstate Commerce Commis sion to have the courts pass upon their ruling that nothing but money can be lawfully received or accepted in pay ment for transportation. Shortly after the new rate law went into effect the question came before the commission, and that body decided that only money could be accepted. The justice of this ruling was not seen j by the legal department of the Monon j railroad, and George Fitzpatrick, the I general counsel, and E. C. Field, the | general solicitor, wrote to tho Inter state Commerce Commission and gave their construction of the law, backed by decisions of the courts. They said they had carefully consid ered the law before the promulgation of the rule, and under their construc tion of the law had entered into con tracts In good faith with publishers for tne publication of time cards, etc., and for the payment of such services in transportation at the rate fixed by the Monon's duly published tarifT, which in every' instance was the exact equiva lent of the agreed price for publica tion. The law, they said, nowhere provides that payment for transportation shall be in money, and it must therefore fol low that the freedom of contract as be tween a railroad and an individual is precisely the same as between other citizens. If this be true, they went on to say, It is difficult to understand, when one docs a service for a railway corporation under a contract made in good faith am: for an agreed consid eration, admittedly fair, that the par ties may not mutually stipulate for the payment in anything but money. To hold otherwise, they urged, is to deny the freedom of contract to a particu lar class. The rule, as universally stated and upheld by the courts, is: “What the parties agreed shall con stitute the payment, the law will ad judge to be payment. It is competent for parties to designate by their con tracts how and In what payment may be made. It is by no means true that payment can be only made in money; on the contrary, it may be made in property or in services." The inhibition, they added, a gains' charging a “greater or less or differ ent compensation,” relates alone to a difference in the “established rate,” and not to the manner of making payment. DEFENDS RAILWAYS. James J. Hill of the Great Northern Before the Commission. Minneapolis.—James J. Hill, presi dent of the Great Northern railway, took the stand Wednesday when the Interstate Commerce Commission be gan its inquiry into the relations be tween the railroads and the grain com panies in the Northwest. Mr. Hill proved to be a willing wit ness. His answers to all questions were given without hesitation and in detail. He told of the tremendous grain traffic on his road, equalling each year twice as much as the grain hauled into Chicago in a year by nil roads running into that city. He said that the Great Northern in 1879 hauled 2*870,000 bushels, while in 18DC t.iis had increased to probably 115,000,000 bushels. In view of the fact that the bulk of the Great Northern’s business comes from the farmer, he said it has always been its policy to aid the farmer whenever possible. “Is it the policy of your road, Mr. Hill, to delay freight for any reakon?" was one of the opening questions. “No. it certainly is not,” was the re ply. Mr. Hill thought the present legal method of handling grain is wrong, but the farmer is too much the victim of the speculator. He said every receiv ing elevator should devote Itself to sim ply that business: that the operating in grain should be another separate business; and that the business of the grain mixer should be another separate business. “Do you think the farmer is getting what he should for his crop?" “I don’t think he is getting what he should for some classes of grain. For instance, farmers are now raising a lot of durum wheat. There Is a good deal of risk in what the foreign demand will be, and a market at home for only a limited amount.” Mr. Hill said that elevators are continually treating the farmers un fairly. “We have to watch the elevators all the time.” he said. “This work is don# by the traffic department, but ns a matter of fact the department is pretty powerless." Balloon Goes Against the Wind. Paris. —The steerable balloon. Patrle. constructed by the I.ebaudv brothers for the government, made another suc cessful trial Thursday at Molsson.

Wallace, Idaho.—The Steven Adams case was postponed without date by Judge Morgan Thursday, immediately following Adams' plea of not guilty to tue charge of the murder of Fred Ty’er.

Rheumatism cun be inherited and that fact proves it to be a disease of tho blood. It is necessary, therefore, to treat it through the blood if a permanent cure is expected. External applications may give temporary relief from pain but as long as the poisonous acid is in the blood the pain will return, perhaps in a new I place, but it will sorely return. Dr. Wil liams’ Pink Pills cure rheumatism be cause they go directly to the scat of the disorder, purifyiug and enriching the blood. Mrs. Henry Cota, of West Cheshire, Conn., is the wife of the village ma chinist. "Several years ago,” she says, "I was laid up with rheumatism in my feet, ankles and knees. I was in con stant pain and sometimes the affected parts would swell so badly that I could not get about at all to attend to my household duties. There was one period of three weeks daring which I was con fined to the bed. My sufferings were awful and the doctor's medicine did not help me. 1 ** One day a neighbor told me about Dr. Williams’Pink Pills and I decided to try them.

The Man from Oklahoma Thought It Was a Woodpecker. Charley's uncle from Oklahoma was up town being shown the sights, he having come In the day before with a few loads of steers, and Charley was doing the honors. They were walking along on Grand avenue discussing the tall buildings, when all of a sudden one of those rackety riveting machines began ham mering away at high speed on a top story of a steel skyscraper building. The old man stopped as if he’d run against something. He turned his eyes In the direction of the sound but could make out nothing. When he turned to his bewildered nephew his eyes were fairly popping. “Great Scott!” he exclaimed. “But I’d like to see that woodpecker. It roust be a whopper."—Kansas City Star.
