LAMAR, - - - COLORADO Who Owns .the Waterways? One "of the most Intricate problems Involved, nnd one which most he cleared before we have gone far with the management of water power. Is that of the ownership of running wa ter—a matter to which both congress nnd the supreme court liavo given considerable time with very Incon clusive results. Under old conditions, when erection of a darn was the whole apparatus of power develop ment, the man who owned the dam Bite was considered by that possession .to own the power in the water during 'the time It was passing his land. When water power was the only pow er, and larger development was neces sary, tHis dam owner was given tho right to take for flowago tho lands of his HWmnttTnto neighbors, for a fair i ■price. But now that we have passed far beyond that stage, to a time when, the Improvement of a river begins at the fountain from which It springs and In tho forests which cover the slopes of tho surrounding hills, wo can no longer follow this old proce dure. Tho work which Is done at head waters actually creates a power, declares J. L. Mathews In the Atlantic, | since It enlarges and steadies the I flow; and that power Is possible of utilization over and over agnln, fori every foot of fall from the fountain to tho sea. The supremo court lias often held Hint the government has but a navigation right In streams, and that the states themselves own tho water, and the land-owners the use for pow er. But old usage must give wuy to now needs, nnd a new body of law de scribing nnd establishing the owner ship and tho extent of the several rights In a river is one or the urgent needs of tho now movement. Misfit Education. Tho eduentors and parents who are now renewing tho old struggle for n thorough revision of tho high school curriculum have taken as their guid ing nmxltn "A place for everything, and everything In Its place.” An ex cellent principle It Is. especially de serving of application to tho task of high school education In these days, j when Impulsive n|Kistles of ‘'liberal education” are trying to And a place lor everything In a high school cata logue without concerning themselves very seriously over tho vexatious problem of putting courses In proper lilaces. Tho appeal must be heeded, says the New York Tribune, not slra jily for the sake of tho young people who aro seeking an education, but j also In order to check the wholesale desertion of city high schools, which Is disquieting teachers nnd school j boards ull over tho country. Plainly written on the face of enrollment sta tistics Is the wurnlng that unless mis fit courses aro dropped the magnlfl rent establishments adorning the high school systems of a hundred large Amcricnn municipalities may soon ho tenanted only by the relatively few pupils who wish to prepare for cob lego. Overeating. When prudently followed, the prac tice of fasting Is most beneficial. . Many people really never feel the sen- , nation of nntural hunger. All they j have Is a morbid craving for food, which comes of habit rather than from any actual need felt by the stomach. Natural hunger, declares the New York Weekly, stimulates the palate, and Is felt In the mouth as well ns In the Internal organs. It makes the plainest food seem nellclous and. when being satisfied. Is n source cf such enjoyment as the average well fed man rarely experiences. Some suffer. It Is true, from insufficient food but not so many as those whose Bis arise from excessive eating., their digestion being continually overtaxed. A bablt of Judicious fasting would do wonders for them. The system would recover Its lost tone, nnd —in the case of nftmtal workers—the brain would work with an ease nnd lightness that would surprise them, for the brain Is one of the chief sufferers from the practice of overeating. Most Americans get more for their money than any other people of any ; other age. In a recent lecture, r. teach er of economics told more than half tho story when she said: "The thing that has Increased Is not the cost of living, but the scale of living. The chunge Is not In the price at which ex istence can be maintained, but in peo ple’s ideas as to what are necessaries of life." Clerical paper wants Mexico to go to war with Uncle Sam. figuring that Colombia and Japan would Jump in and help. Really. It ought to let Venezuela In on this. Looks like i positive snub to expect Castro to pre serve neutrality. King Manuel of Portugal h s an nounced his intention perconally to make good the value of court jewels belonging to the state which were sold by his father. Presumably he will saw wood to earn the money. “Cuba llbre" has long been a war cry and watchword. A new kind of "Cuba llbre" is reported by Gov. Ma goon. who declares, after a careful In vestigation. that the island has not a single case of yellow fever. That is a better kind of "free Cuba" than even Its liberators dreamed of Congress likes to use ordinary cau tion. It doesn't want to put millions Into floating steel Just to have the air ship come along and gayly wigwag to the ironclad that it is a back number.

Washington.—The Colorado delega tion made earnest efforts Saturday to obtain favorable action upon various items in the omnibus public buildings bill for Colorado buildings and met with much success. An especial effort was made in be half of the Denver public buildings aga.nst whom there has been strong opposili .n on the pari of tnu House conferees. Representatives Bonynge and Cook filed statements with the conference committee setting forth in detuil the present amount of business transacted in the federal oifices in Denver and showing the urgent necessity for a new public building at an early day.

The matter was finally adjusted by granting a Denver building with the cost limit fixed ai SI,GUO,OOU, and an ap propiiation of $50,000 so that work may be commenced during the coming tic sal year. On the final agreement the con ferees the Colorado items in the bill, in addition to Denver, remain as follows: Colorado Springs. $15,000; Trinidad. $1.».0u0 and Boulder $lo.'»00 for extin nl u of the cost limit of their respective buildings.
