Fill out, clip, and Bend to the Herald: The United Sta-.es In the past has taken a good deal of back talk and has received almost in sileoce a good man affronts that less civiliz ed natioos would call insults But it is to be noticed that when Un united States really rad work to do, really had a motive in going to war. she disp ay d a vigor and strength uc der tbe quiet and non-combative ex terior that has surprised all tbe world. Rev W. C. Blackman, of New York, in a recent sermon on Mr. Glad tone said that "Three things hav secured Gladstone's earthly immortal ity. First, his integrity; his bit terest enemies could only decry his policy. Second, hi stnd for liberty. Third, hts defen-e of Christianity." The fellows th.t make tne news for the country made a little mistake the other day, when they reported that twelve ot the nioe ships in Cervera's fleet had been destroyed. Where are the people who were going to take Cuba in a week's cam paign and have Spin suing for peace before May Day? The war began April 21. "Fight or-Starve" is a good phrase to go in the school histories along with the other bright sayings of brave men. Rear Admiral Dewey is a remark ably quiet man, but when the time came to fight be let the others talk and wsat to work. fi " (Date!) V Herald, El Paso. A (Sidewalk, street, alley, gutter) .

History of tbe Great West Illustrated In Chronologi al Order in tbe Con secutive Denominations. Washington Post.- ' On the first of Juna next, or sooner if practicable, the department will begin ssuing to postmasters, and will coo- inue to issue until December di, 1898, k new series of portage stamps com -nemoratlve of the holding of tne nat ional and international Transmits! ippl exposition at Omaha, Neb., dur ing tbe coming summer and fall. They ill be known as tbe TraDsml.si8tpiji merles, and will comprise tbe following lenominatione: 1, z, 4, 5, , iu, aaa ou -ents ana 91 and $2. These stamps are not Intended to supersede the ordinary series now in 8;; so that postmasters may obtain lUDplies of either or both whenever need d. In ordering the new stamps a special form of requl-ltioo tb'iuld be ji-ed, supplies ol wmcn may be baa rom tbe division of supplies of the 1rit assistant postmaster general's oi- floe from now on. The Transmlsissippl stamps differ naterially in size from tbe ordinary eriee, the engraved space being about deven-eigbths of an incb wide by about one and three J-igbtha long. The de ign are aUo raaiually unlike the or ilnary -tamps, cooblsiing of a border (substaniially th same in all th del dominations, except that the colors and figures and letters represen iog values are different) and a centra one In b ack, indicative in some way of tbe development of the great region bdyond the Mlrsi'sippi river. Tbe ceoes and tbe borders are all printed f'Om lined engravings on steel by tbe bureau of engraving and printing of .De treasury departm nt. Tbe border, whicn forms in its innnr line an irregular framework to the cenes represen ed, consis s of a fluted dgure on e itber side, whh interior orosobars, beginning in a single line aear the bottom of tne at mo, and en larging until it rt a jhes a shield in escb .f the upper c orners, wherein i-t engrav ed tne Arabic numeral of d-m- nioa .ions tbe dollar mark being inc ud n tbe case of tbe one and two-dollar stamps. At tbe top, connecting the wo sbidlds, and united to tbe ft a tea framework on tbe two sides, is a curv ed tablet, on which are engraved ir small white cap tals the words ''Unit ed states ol America. Abive tbls, on either slle, are heads of wheat, and between these a small scroll. I tu rned. a ely balow tbe central scene is he title of the picture In diminu tive white Got bio letters on a curved tablet, and below this on either side, in scroll-, are the words of value ''one" "two," and so on, in white capi tals, except in the case of the two highest denominat ors, when "tl.00'' and "92.00" are substituted for letters. Above each of these is a p-ojecting ear, nd at the bottom of all, on a straight, b'ack tablet are the worde; Postage. Ooe Cent;". "Postage, Two Cents," and -oon, in white capitals. The scenes represented on the stamps, together with the colors of the birders of tbe several denominations, are these: One-cent "Marquette on the Mississippi." from a p-lntlng by Lamprecht now In pos esslnn ot the Marquette oliee, of Milwau kee.

"Bardstlps of Emltratlon," Mayor Bennett of Lowell Heartily Endorses This Testimonial -Hood's Sar . saparilla Triumphant in a Severe Test The testimonials in behalf of Hood's Sarsaparilla are worth reading because they tell things worth telling. Just spare a few moments to read this statement below: No man is more favorably known m and about Epping, N. H., than Mr. Joseph Stokes, the husband ot the lady referred to. His word is as good as a U. S. bond, and every statement from him or his family may be most hnplicitfy relied upon. Read this: "C. JL Hood & Co., Lowell, Mass.: "Gentlemen: For fully twenty years my mother has been seriously troubled oy a sore on her nose. For some time we thought It of a cancerous nature, and It was removed three times. A physician In Boston said the sore was not a cancer, but "A Catarrhal Sore." Ct discharged and was, of course, very an noying as well as painful. Sometimes It nut as large as a half dollar, and It was ecessary to keep it bandaged and pro tected most of the time. A boat two years igo the sore seemed to be spreading over aer face, and was larger than when the Boston physician removed it. There Is o question but that Its origin was In The Scrofulous Humor rith which my mother has always been troubled.

Postmasters who wish supplies of these stamps may make requisitions for them at any time after the loth of May, with the understanding, of course, that the department will fill requisitions as soon as possib'e af ter the printing of the stamps be gin. No Tranemississippl postal cards or stamped envelopes will be issued. Although the series of stamps will be discontinued after tbe 31st of Decem ber, 189S, tbey will be good for postage at any time afterward. Claude M. Johnson, chief of tbe bureau of engraving, will be guilty of an inartistic crime in being unable to comply with this order by June 1. On account of the difficulty of "register n,"a9itis called exactly joining tbe black edges with the colored the department has reluctantly counter manded the order, and the stamps are to be printed in solid colors. The two sets of stamps are on view at the office of tbe third-assistant postmaster general. Nothing could ex ceed tbe beauty ana daintiness of tbe first set, with tine soft b'ack centers, set like etchings in vivid mosaic. The -econd set looks like a group of cheap chromos. Madison Davis, chief clerk to the third assistant postmaster general, is large y responsible for their very ori ginal coaoeption. Tbe consecutive de nominations are represented by con secutive history pictures, ell selected and executed. The old explorer, Marquette, leads the way. Fremon' shows tbe feasibility of Western ex ploration and settlement, and blazed the sr round for Immigrants, mining pros pectors, cattlemen, and farmers. Tbe closing stamp of tbe series is the $2 stamp, which represents tbe St. Louis bridge, figuratively uniting the East and the West. Tbe Omaha exposition is commemorative of the growth of tbe West, and tbe Trans-Mississippi stamps bear tbe same analogy. SUGGESTED THE DESIGNS. The Wash in it ton authorities have be-n much interest d In the designs. Every one bad a finger in the pie. Mr. Roosevelt would have a buffalo and wild warfare. The buffalo and the army picture were selected. Mr. Rooseve t also wanted Custer at the head of a troop of cavalry, but no pic ture could be found. Mr. Memtt -elected tbe harvesting scene. Mr. Gary insisted upon the Rock Island inrtead of tbe St. Louis bridge, but as the former was neither picturesque nor costly, and the small town of Davenport wou'd have be eh portrayed as a leading Western city, Mr. Gary was ruled down. Mr. Gary also in sisted upon having the St. Lou s nridge upon the 2-cent stamp, instead of at the end of the series, where it pro perly belongs. xhi designer of the stamps is Ray mond Odtrander-Smith.

WAB VESSEL CONSTRUCTION OneLake Builder Could Tnrn Oat a If the Torpedo Vessel Each Week Treaty Would Permit. There is a strong movement on to have tbe new treaty being negotiated with Canada, abrogate that provision of the old treaty which fcrbids the building of anv war vessel on tbe great lakes, says Globe Democrat special If this inhibition were removed the United States government would be able to command tbe service of several great ship yards. No battleships or cruisers would be turned out, for the reoson that they could not bs gotten through the Canadian locks, but all torpedo boats and torpedo boat des troyers which the government neds cou d be built and turned over to the government in an amazingly short time. Frank Wheeler, who owns the great ship yards at Bay City, Mi :h., and will nave a larger output annually tban any ship yard in the United States, has in f rmed the navy department that he would be able to turn out a torpedo boat and a torpedo boat destroy r with in six weeks, and that after the first of these b ats were built, and he had his models, he would be able to furnish one boat of these types every week as long as the government desired tbem. His ship yards employ 4000 men, and he offers, if the navy department so wixhes, to turn the yaris over to the government just as they are, to be used by tbe navy department for naval construction, he to receive at the close of the war whatever sum congress may see tit to pay him for the use of the yards. Besides tbe Wheeler yards. are also the ship yards of the Globe Iron W rks, at Cleveland, O ; those of the Detroit Dry Dock company, at De troit; the American Steel Birge com pany, at Du'uth; and tbe Illinois Steel Works, at Chicago.

A Friend of America. Washington Star. The gutter press of Paris belittles thn people of tbe United States. The Berlin press treats us with tbe patron age it considers to be aue to our wua- yrd immaturity. Spain posts us be fore the world as plva. Senor de Lo me, after a two years' stay, left us with an affront on bis lips, tsanor foio' f ter a stav of two months, told the Canadians tbat be just left a crazy lot. Lieutenant Du Boao, who accompanied him, characterized tbe public men of tr,i- country as venal ani ignorant and ruffianly. Even our own Mr. Bayard nn'ie apologised for us to an astonish ed English audience as a sometimes violent people," who needed a strong bard like tbat of Mr. Cleveland to bold us down. Let us put against all of tbls detrac tion the testimony of a gentleman of education and character who has lived with us for a quarter of a century dis charging official duties of great delica cy and importance, and has come to know thi American people mtimat ly. In bis .leave-taking at tbe White House v sterday, Senor Mendonoa, tbe retiring Brazilian minister, in an ad dress of unusual beauty and interest, said : 'Bnt friends do not part in the so lemn hour in which the nation is cal led to arms, with diplomatio forms merely.

I saw tbe great bero laid to rest in the heart of your gre it metropolis, amid the mourning of tbe whole land, and witnessed his spjtheoais celebrated by the voice of the entire Union. I saw the chief magistrateiof the nation fel hd by an asssin's hand, and observ ed the republic continue firm and ser ene under tbe empire of the law. In its joy or sorrow the cation did not de part a moment from the confidence in it high destiny. "I nave visited the different regions of your broad land; I know the active men of tbe east, the open-hearted in habitants of the west and tbe chival rous southerner.

"Wherever the duty of my beloved country win can me, i can assure you tbat my heart and sympathy will be with your noble people and with tbe standard bearer of tbe republican Am erica, who is advanciog the outposts of soman ireeaom into tne last intrench ments of the past."

Heber Newton preached an Interesting sermon on tbo life of Mr. Gladstone at All Stuls Pro testant Episcopal church io New York last Sunday He .'said in part: It is as a statesman tbat Mr. Glad stone is known throughout the v0rld and honored wherever he is known For 60 years he has been in nublic life" the observed of all obw Thf long career in public lif. nM witnes- ?ArK057,ln,rKPe.C0.,r?tr:ion' not merely ?.!bUlty bUt Kl character. Mr. Gladstone was a statesman, not a poli tician. He .bad. Very little aptitude KWinr,ren- Influence over bis followers was- almost boundless wa,! the influence of his person ality, not of his manipulation. Men far inferior to him, surpassed him in tneir ability to manage party. He surpassed all his contemporaries and almost every predecessor in English history in his ability to impress upon a party his own great ideas and convic tions. His power lay in his thoughts and in his beliefs. v"To begin at the beginning, he was absolutely disinterested.pecun arily, in hla public life; he was not in politics for money. On leaving office finally, be made no attempt to Be :ure a uei fion. He was nobly above tbe sordid considerations of public life, which mash and enslave so many of our pub lio men. "To him office was a publ'c trust and not a private perquisite. Its pow er1 was to him something far more than an opportunity for creating pa tronage. It was an opportunity for serving man, in the promoi ion of bet ter conditions of life, of nobler laws, and loftier institutions. He desirtd popularity and had it in a measure al most unequalled in Enelirh history. 'In h m we bad a statesman who lit erally tried to administer government according to th- ethics of Jesus Cbrlst. He was in truth the nearest counter part which our modern world haa known of tbe old Hebrew prophet. Wben such a God. the people will acclaim him king-, not bv the riirht nf nrlmnMnitim v... by the calling and ordinaiion of the most mgn." Spanish and American Waws. From Gnnton's Magazine for May. The povertv and lnw atr nf ennui life and civilization of the Spaniards is indexed quite accurately fy their wage rates. For instance, thf are weekly dbv of a hriolrl (Malaga) is $3 80; in the UnitFd States, 921.18; of a mason, $3.30 in Spain, $21 in tbe United States; of a carpenter, $3.90 in Spain, $15.25 in tbe United Stiles: of a black -mith. .1 Oil in $16.02 in the Uni ed Stares; of a tin smith, $3 In Spa n, $14.35 in the XJoiu ed State-: of printers. $4050 in S $16.42 in tbe Unitel States; of laborers, porten., etc., $2.75 in Spain, $8 68 n oe united statts. While rents aad. possibly nric?s of a few naii are lower in Soam than in thn ITniurii Sa es, the difference corals nowhere near equalling the wide disparity of wages. Moreover, in a this sort the quality of ths living mut considered as well as the nominal cost. Thus, lower imply inferior accommodations, and, to the average Srjanlri. miutnf t.h comforts and conveniences in ordinary use here are unattainable luxuries. x nat the low rate of Spanish wages does really mean a proportionate! v low consumption and low standard of liv ing is substantiated by one o two b g nlflcant facts of anotber.charaeter; for instance, the per capita annual con sumption of woolen goods in Spain is only 9 shillings' worth, as against 19 shillings in the United States; of ugar, 5 pounds per annum in Soair,, 43 pounds in the United States; of b- f 16 pounds per annum in Spain, 02 io the United States; of all meafc., 49. pounds in Spain, 120 pounds la the United States; of butter, none in Soain, 16 pounds in tbe United States; of coffee, 4 pounds in Spain, 115 pounds, in the United States. 8 8
