Bryan a gainat any increase in judges’ salar ies is almost ludicrous. His argu ment is that the Judge lives up to his salary, and the amount that he receives largely decides in what soc ial circle he will move. Give him SSOOO a year and his summer vaca tions will be spent where he comes in contact with those who. In taking a brief respite from the routine of life, seek somd quiet and Inexpen sive resort. Make the judge’s sal ary SIO,OOO, and he will select a new summer resort, where he will be thrown into association with those who spend a larger sum upon their summer vacations. Raise the salary to 116,000 and he will make another move and enter a new class, and 'he la naturally more or less affected by the opinion of the class with which he associates. According to the same sort of argument, the rapid and real ly wonderful increase In the income which Mr. Bryan receives, annually, to a final reason why he should nev er again be a presidential candidate. He gets a bigger Income than any of the Judges whom he criticises.

FEW EARLY MARRIAGES NOW. Men and Women Await Arrival of Years of Discretion. The marrying age la steadily re ceding. and it is quite within the range of probability that 41 will be regarded in the future as the equiva lent of the present 21. rnis is partly due to the keenness of the struggle for existence; a man desires to attain a position before marrying, and he finds the years slipping by with disturbing rapidity while he Is climbing the ladder. Both men and women too, fear that they may be deceived and many enter into partnership with one who will turn out to be undesirable. So they will spend the earlier years and then the glamor of his single life will wear off. They will have gained experience enough to enable them to judge character with fair accuracy, and then will thus be less fearful of being “taken in." They will feel that after all. It Is hotter to settle down with a partner. And then marriage will come in mid dle age. The love making will not be Cie same, but it may well be a more tolid fire—quieter, but more enduring Then the Scholars Understood. The written language <s so far from the spoken In Scotland that spelling reform is an academic question. A story which llustrates the many tlia lects is told of an examination ml Aberdeen university. The examiners were an English clergyman aad a Lowland Scotchman. The master of tho scholars put many questions to them which were admirably an swered; the boys brought the Is raelites out of Egypt with s simple directness which Moses would have envied. Then the clergyman asked: ‘‘How did Pharaoh die?" The boys sat dumb. The Lowlander. to make it move plain, repeated the queetion: ‘FIoo did Phawraoh dee?" Again there was a dead silence. Next the naster himself took the matter In sand—" Fat cam’ to Phawraoh at his hinder end?" The boys answered as with one voice: ’He was drooned!” To "dee" means in the Aberdeen dia lect to die in one's bed. Tkeaa care ful eaheiara knew that Pharaok had not “deed.” Honor Among Brigands.
