Usual Wedding Fee
For the third time in the history
of the marriage license law of Pen
1nsylvania a sdf marriage cert
cate was issued last veek The
knot was tied in the presence of the
County Clerk and two witnesses
The contracting parties were Andrew
drew J Taylor aged 81 and Chris
4 tina Eikes aged 69
It was purely a matter of econo
my that they dispensed with the
services of a minister The room
appeared in the marriage license
office last week and stated his case
He inquired particularly about the
fee for performing marriage ceremonies
monies The Clerk informed him
that the legal fee was 5 The old
man said that was too much and
he would consider the matter a
while longer Later he made his
second appearance and informed
the Clerk that he had consulted an
attorney and learned that he and
his intended bride could perform
the ceremony by simply declaring
themselves married in the presence
of two witnesses In this way 1 t
would cost but 120 60 cents for
the regular license and 60 cents for
the marriage certificate
The old man performed his part
of the ceremony and instructed his
bride how to proceed The certificate
cate reads
We hereby certify that on the
18th of October 1900 we united our
selves inmarriage at Pittsburg in
the County of Allegheny having
first obtained from the Clerk of the
Orphans Court of said county a
declaration that he was satisfied
that there was no existing legal
impediment to our so doing

Should Especially Desire The
Crushing of Trusts and Imperialism <
Thousands of young men are go j
ing on November 6 to cast their I
first votes for President And it i s r
to be hoped that they realize the
full extent of their own personal
stake in the result
The present campaign is another
pivotal event In our political
history The young men who are a
shortly going to cast their first S
Presidential ballots are whether
they are fully conscious of it or not j
the voters who will have most e
cause in the vears ahead to look I
back at the result with profound 1
thankfulness or keen regret It is 5
a parting of the ways for them s
Old men are passing off the stage I
and the full fruits of the verdict to
be rendered at the polls next
month will not be gathered in their
time It is to the young men with
their lives all before them and the
hard problem of how to realize i
their hopes and ambitions to solve
the election of Mr
that McKinley j
or Mr Bryan is ol the gravest Qmo E
mentBetween J
Between the party of imperialism t
and the trusts and the party of
human liberty and equality of
rights and opportunities it is forI
our young men to choose And asC
they make their choice they will l
have to reap the consequences o
Those of them who understand the
history of their own cpuntry and 1
the principles on which their fore c
fathers founded its government can J
not fail to see that if they vote to
reelect Mi McKinley arid thereby I
ratify his policy in the Philippines I
and Porto Rico they will vote to
nullify the Constitution and commit
the coming generation to a pro I
gram of conquest colonization and
annexation in quarters of the globe g
far distant from our own shores f
And they are themselves the corn t

their fathers it is the policy which i

The cuckoo not only presumes on the
Idridness of other birds to lay her egg
in their nests but her young when

His < nest When he makes one is of the
most untidy description and a house
martens neat mudbuilt abode is very
much to his taste if he can seize it dur

Discover of America
I Of the 10000000000 of gold pro
duced in the world since tho discovery
of America more than onehalf has
been found since 1860 and more
than onequarter since 1885 or to
put it in other words onehalf of thor
gold mined in the last 400 years has
been prpduced within 40 years and
onefourth within 15 years The i
treasury bureau of statistics has made
some compilations regarding the gold
production of the world in view of tho
temporary suspension of gold mining
in South Africa > and its possible ef
thn e
world A casual exnmir c t toll of the
figures of annual prodtl ion shows
plainly tho very rapid imvue during
tho last half of the cjopirr century
Fiiom 1493 to 1GOO f 01640000
worth of gold was found the average
annual production being 4644815
From 1601 to 1700 806315000
worth was mined and from 1701 to
1800 1262805000 From 1801 to
1860 2120444000 was produced
tho average annual output being 15
746260 In the decade from 1861 to
1870 tho total production was 1263
015000 In the next ten years tho
production was slightly less being
1150814000 and from 1881 to
1890 there was also a considerable de
crease the amount being 1060055
600 From 1891 to 1899 the produc
tion increased in a remarkable de
gree amounting to no less than 1
867971000 the average annual
amount being 204773555 This
makes the total production between
14931899 9833039600
An examination of the amount of
gold produced from the mines of the
Transvaal and by those of other
countries shows that the gold produc
tion of the entire world is more than
double that from the Transvaal tho
latter mines produced 79213952
worth of gold in 1898 while the pro
duction in other parts of the world
was 208214647 making a grand

A Montal Condition That Needs a Radi

Some of our readers may ho famil

results from having a certain subject
or phase of a situation get bn ones
nerves You brood so continuously
over an infelicity a grievance or a
resentment that you become exasper
ated You not only lose your sense
of proportion but your good tem I
per That is the one subject which
you cannot think of calmly or reason
about clearly Your nervous irrita
tion precludes any mental operation
concerning it except that of feelings
and your emotions in regard to it all
run one way We imagine that if the
full truth were told in regard to many
acts that seem unreasonable and al
most desperate it would come out
that a certain situation or person had
got on the mans nerves and > like the
Malay who says that he gets hot in I
his head he simply ran amuck ButI
there are one or two cautions that are
worth regarding by us all when we
observe in ourselves any tendency Qfj
this kind One is to seek to get a true
perspective of tho situation by getting I
far enough away from it in imaging

things in their proper relations Thi c
other is to take your coolest hardest 1
headed friepjl into your confidence

England is said to be the one present j
ed by theEgyptians to Lord Wolse
ley and valued at 2000 but this sum i
is comparatively little for a bejeweled I

brought over to Europe by the late I

standard for what a diamond hilted1 I

recall that wonderful saber will be
somewhat skeptical about the exist

gorgeous blade which is supposed to
be worth more than 20 swords of
equal beauty and value to the shahs
but it is populnrly supposed that the
diamonds and rubies and emeralds
with which it is thickly incrusted
bring up its value to about 220000
which at four per cent represents 01
an income ot almost 9000 a year
