Much to tho delight of his parishioners, tho Hew J. Edward Wright announced this morning tho with drawal of his resignation as pastor the Church of tho Messiah. Mr. Wright re signed several weeks ago tho pastornto that he has so successfully nnd satisfac torily tilled for l years and nsked that he be relieved. Octolicr 1. Strong efforts have since been made to Induce him to reconsider and withdraw this resignation, lie announced to-day that ho had been led to see that Mo would be unwarrantiil lit longer holding out against what seems the universal desire of the members of his church and congregation. Mr. Wright will be given an assistant to relieve him of much drudgery and fill some If not all of his outside appointments. Mr. Wright's decision Is hailed with delight by the people of Montpeller out side the Church of the Messiah, mnliy of whom aie bounil to him by strong ties. The prospect of a severing of these life time ties and associations was not pleasant. EDUCATION IN JAPAN. If you can imagine a long room in a long hnue with a thatilud roof, dark plastered wells, broad doorways closed with piper-covered latticed frames which slide in grooves hare Moors covered with jx'rf-cl fitting straw mats, some tiny tables one b two feet lu size nnd eight Inches high. If you enn Imagine this, then vou cm conceive of an ancient iiiool-i iim in Japan. Again. If you tan Imagine a patriarchal old gentleman, with a sparse beard, a head half ha Id, a small tnlg of hair tinned hack on the top of his head, then coated on a little "iihlon behind one of the tlnv tables on which Is a Mat stone Inkstand, a manuscript school-bonk and a long bamboo pencil at one cud of which Is n fine-pointed brush for writing: then think of some tiny children. a half dozen probably the boys' heads shaved, except for a circular bunch of hair ex actly at the crown, the girls with long tassels of straight black hair hanging In front of each ear, all dressed In llttlo flowing garments with sleeves like tho wings uf bird". these children silting be hind otbi r little tables, their brushes In hand, ind writing, from the teacher's dlctnti 'ii. stiangc shaped i haraclers on i oarse enpy-bonks. imagine this, and you have an ancient Japanese school In ses sion, both teacher and pupils sitting upon the floor. They ne er went beyond reading and eountlnu upon the soro-ban (abacus). ThitiL's liave changed now. The old has utterly passed away. A most elliclcnt educational system, western in theory and Practice, is now in full operation through out Japan. f,nmniodlnus common school houses, and Imposing college and uni versity buildings are dotted all over the country. A thoroughly graded system operates from the primary school to the. Imperial university, which ranks with the highest American institutions. The iifltci.il or government schools are worked out te cover the whole Held of education "xcept the religious features, and this they are endeavoring to supply by an eclectic system of morality, both Oriental nnd Occidental. Itesldes the regular course, which ex tends from tho common school through thu high common school, the middle schcol, the high school, to the university, there are government te-'linlcal schools for every branch of trade and the professions,-commercial, army, navy, agri cultuie, textile, mechanics, law, medicine, normal, language, etc. The government maintains a special school for the teaching of every meidern Inngtiage of ImportanceEnglish, Trench, Ciermnn, Russian. Spanish, Itnllan Chinese and Korean, nut the English language precedes all other languu'ies. and it Is making such rapid progress that it is destined to become tho spoken lan guage of the nation. One sciiuus criticism against Japan's educational system 11 that it discourages private si liools. Pupils of prhate schools of eiiiial grade and efficiency with the government schools cannot pass on to tho upper olllclnl schools witli tho same facil ity ns pupils of the government schools, When we remember that the government schools are not free schools, and that many excellent private schools supported by foreign capital give students an edu cation practically free, this discrimina tion of tlio government would seem un wise, 'uul it Is likely to be eon ei ted In the near luture. The Ameilcan nation should be espec ially proud of Japan's educational re. cold, since It is from America that Japan has taken her lessons In Western learn ingHarper's Weekly. THE DORMANT PAI1ENTAE CON SCIENCE. Indirectly, tho churches will do much to amend the present deficiencies If they can awaken tho dormant parental con science. Slneo biblical, and even since J'urltan times there has been a mani fest decay, among heads or families, of the sense of responsibility in splillii.il matters. First the father transferred hl own share of patental duty to tho mother, and in many cases it has after wards been passed over en hloc to nn outsider. In England one of the most lamentable features or the present edu cational controversy Is the suspicion of Inslncerelty in the arguments of so many Engllcal clergy and country sipilres who, whllo anxious that tho children of the poor should have the privilege of a full Christian education, send their own suns Uf) to Oxford nnd Cambridge In a con dition of amazing Ignorance respecting the main events of scripture history: and the similar Inconsistency of so many well-to-do Nonconformists who, whllo loud In their protests against tho exposure of the cottagers tiuuilv to ultra-eccloslastical Influences, allow their own boys and girls to obtain much of their religious training ftom Anglican, and even Unman Catholic sources. In America no less mischief Is done to tbn spread of true religion by the spectacle of the church member who demands that the Statu shall set up in every school house a light that has not yet been kindled within his own home.

HAUD I.UCK Ex-President Cleveland used to fish nnd gun n good deal in thu Harnegat Bay district. John Camburn, a Water town guide, says that one cold, wet night Mr, Cleveland got lost. He wandered through the mud and lam and darkness, trying to llnil his party, for more than two hours, but not a bouse could ho see, not a light, not n road. Finally, though, ho struck a natrow lane, nnd lu duo course a linuso appear ed. It waB now lato: Mr. Cleveland wiih cold ami tired; ho thought ho could go no further. So ho hanged at the dour till a window on tho second floor went up, and a grulf voice said: "Who nro you','" "A friend," said Mr. Cloveland meek ly. "What do you want?" "To stny hero all night." "Stay there, then," And the window descended with n hang, and Mr. Cleveland, shouldering his gun again, resumed his Journey wearily, New York Tribune. That tired feeling Is a burden you need not carry Hood's Haisnputilla will rid you of it and renew your courayu. WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS SAY I'nrt I'lnjeil by iho Heeonil-ClnsH 1.1 ccnics In tlic- Present Situation. (From the Itandolph Herald.) From tho fact that much of the uvll flowing from local option Is traceable to the second;class license, somo of tho news papers base nn urgumont against a sys tem of Stato control. They allcgo that selling by tho bottle to bo taken away Is more productive of drunkenness than serving by the glass to bo drunk on tho pi cruises. They maintain that more cases of Intoxication come from second-class stores than from saloons. They ato pro bably correct In this, but such a premise, klocs not lend one to tho conclusion that If all selling were done by persons who were not pecuniarily Interested In Increasing their sales the samo or worse results would follow. The patron of tho secoiid-clnss stole who Is now heard from in the police court Is also commonly a patron of tho llrst-class store. Ho hoists In about all he enn carry there nnd then winds up on a bottle procured at tho other place. Tho combination does not work well. A single source of supply could regulate the. amount dispensed much better. It will not for n moment bo conceded that a man whose prollts de pend on the amount he sells, either by the bottle or glass, will bo as discreet as one who Is paid for his time only and whose Interests He rather In dis pensing the minimum, Instead of the maximum, amount, The second-class store under the existing law cannot be made to serve as a "horrible example" of what a Stato dispensary would be under public control. A much better parallel was the well-conducted agency "under the prohibitory law, which, in spile of the general abuse of the theory hack of It, was really responsible1 for very lltle drunkenness. The tlnaneial scandals that brought the agency sys tem Into disrepute were the direct pro duct of divided nuthorlty and the op portunity orfered for many men so dis posed tn use their power cotrttptly with little chance of detection. Under proper State control, this danger could be great ly reduced, wo will not claim It could bo absolutely banished. Even tho federal postal system has been used by scoundrels to their own enrichment, yet because of a few abuses like that no ono purposes to abolish It. JUDOE MUNSONS DECISION. (From the Bellows Falls Times.) Speaking of Judge Mnuson's opinion of the rights uf a wholesale Honor dealer in Veimont the P.ntland Herald says : "The spectacle of heavy expiess wagons from Itutland rolling through towns like West Itutland and Proctor carrying small packages, of Inpior and beer for delivery to consumers, and the soliciting of trade by runners from Itutland whole salers are vcrj offensive to decent peo ple. The license law was enacted to sup ply and not create a demand. There Is suthcii'iit thirst lu this vicinity without developing It by a house to house can vas. It Is repugnant to the moral sense of the community that the wholesalers should importune the Individual con sumer. It is enough that the Individual loiiMimcr importunes tliu retailer." The remarkable sentenco in this paragraph i.s: "The license law was enacted to supply nnd not create a demand." In other words tho license law was to sup ply a thirst which ,'n years of prohibition had developed. Very well, but alter those who are burdened witli a prohibi tion thirst have died off what will be come of the saloons unless tho ranks are recruited? CLEAN ATHLETICS WANTED. vFrom the Montpeller Journal.) In discussing the probable foimation of a triangular foot ball league, to com pete tor the Stone cup, the Burro Times recently gave some! advice that Is wot Hi the itteutlon ot all inteiested In school athletics. Says the Times1; If a foot ball league Is lo bo formed by three of the foremost preparatory schools of the State tJoddard Seminary. Montpeller Seminary, and St. Juhnsbury Academy as reported, there Is one re quirement which should bo Incorporated in the agreement. That Is that all pro fessionalism be barred. It is the bail" of school athletics that the spirit of pro fessionalism creeps in, and the encroach ment, which already has been noted In Vermont schools, should be guaided against. The desire to turn out win ning teams leads the unthinking to go beyond tin limits ot legitimate am iteur spoit, and hi lugs upon the schools cer tain repiuach from those who are inter ested in true spurt. It Is a line thing for a school to be represented by a team of atnletes which whips Its opponents, but win n such results are gamed by menus of Idling players to be numbers of Un learn the practice should lie stopped. It Is preferable lor a school to be rcpie s 'liled b a weaker team, all of whose members aie beam tide students, than to have a lot of hired players who may possibly pursue u emu so or two ot study to remove tho curse ot tho thing. Although no definite charges have been made against the teams of various schools In Vermont It Is well known that certain rumors have been current that Ii iiin.i were not composed of really bona tide students. No evidence has been brought out to substantiate these rumors hut It is probable that there is some thing ot truth In them. Now there Is no one school that should bo singled out as particularly culpable in this lespecl. I ndoubteitly nearly all the schools which lay any claim to supeiiority in athletics have at one time or another been guilty of breach ul tho rules of amateur standing. And Instead ot grow ing less noticeable the spirit still i on tlnues. Tills should be eliminated ami athletics In Vermont schools should be pine eel nnd kept in a purely amateur basis. So the Times suggests that in case a league is formed aiuuiig the three schools mentioned that a strict ad herence to the rules of amateur stand ing lie teipilred, and that at least no player. reiiesentlng any school, should be 'allowed to play on a team, who re ceives remuneration for his services, There will be mote interest In the league n nil lu addition it will Insure a certain degree ot equality among the teams, It such a rulo Is lived up to. WEAKEH Til AN IN EAST CAM PA ION. (From the Bane Telegram.) The governorship question is likely to be discussed pretty thoroughly before the ,ic.t Thanksgiving day and It Is a matter of interesting speculation at this time whllo overybody. even the ringers, aie at sea. One of the foiemost possi bilities to bo spoken of is naturally the candidacy of P. W. Clement, anil not withstanding tho probability that his htrergth at the present lime Is unequal to what it was II months ago, the stand he Is likely to lake In the coming cam paign Is of utmost Importance.

The boom of Eleuteiiant-Ciovernor Stanton for the governorship seems to have gained strength. His success would look like abolishing the mountain lino by degrees as the genial lloutnnant-gov-ernor lives so near tho summit of the range that If ho should make a misstep In getting out of his back yard ho would bo almost as likely to roll down ono side of the Stato as tho other, IT SHOULD BE SECUETAUY DAIt I.INO.

Vermont's present object, It seems to the Messenger, Is not so much to sender her money nnd fertility of Invention hi helter-skelter advertising on tho part of anybody and everybody, as lo llrst In duce men of summer resort or tourist resort oxperletico nnd capital to come lo the State, go over tlio ground, and see for themselves what wo havo here. Then all the rest will follow as a matter ot due course, These men will ndvcrtlso their own business. To bo sure, this policy need not discourage all laudablu endeavors to bring tho old Stnte's mer its before the public that may bo In spired In this or that good citizen by nn honest State pjtide, nor need It dis hearten the small hotel keeper or board ing house keeper who has hitherto made a few dollars for himself and year after year sent back his satisfied guests as missionaries to tell the multitude about the hood things wo havo In Vermont. But It should mean that the people who lire going to make tho most money out of this business should take tho greatest Interest hi It. It does mean that the various traiisporntlon companies In Ver mont, for example, can do tho Stato a service and help their own pockets, by a systematic effort to Interest outside men of tlio requisite experience and cap ital In the possibilities ot the tourist business In Vermont.

Vitrloiis CiiiisliIeratliinM In Connection With the .stale Fair. (From tho Itutland News.) The management of the Joint Vermont State Rutland county fair, held In this city last week, was entirely able and ellbinnt In no previous year have all nrr iiigements Uen curried forward with greater method or dispatch. Indeed, it Is to be tcconnteil remarkable, consider ing the fact that lire nlllcrrs of the lair receive no pay. thit there Is compara tively ill tie sjsteni.itc preparatory work done for month" In fore the chlbltlou ns Is the caic Willi most successful talis that the arrangements were as satis factory :. they were this year at Itut land. There is. then, no criticism of tin management. They did wonderfully well, considering tlio conditions under which they labored. While It Is staled that the societies will come out about even financially, the fall was net what It should be. No one would claim lor a minute that it was a cu-Jlt-able exhibition tor the State ot Vermont or even the county of Itutland, for that matter-to mak". The exhibits, with two cr three notable exceptions, th" races and other attractions, with an exception h"ie and there; the attendance, all were of nic-dlncre character. What are the reasons for this'.' There are several. Ir the first place, the Slate fair association is not a State institution, it l an association of a few individuals ns sucn, and consequently hivs no Stale support. The State fair should bo under tin patronage of the State and b" In tin hands of the various State commissions such as the board of agriculture', for in stanceunder whose Juilsdlctlon a State fair would naturally come. Then the State should own suitable grounds. And light here we say that Itutland offers better grounds than any other place lu the State can offer. The State should see that Its fair Is aided by annual ap propriations of propel size, to be expend ed in proper directions for the purpose of developing rivalry In the production of grains, vegetables, live stock, horses, etc. As It is, the Stale fair has no support except as It gi Is it from its own otllcers. from the pitblli at huge and from sale of privileges. Th.- objectionable gamb ling devices permitted on Hie grounds are there beiause the large fees tliey pay fur privileges arc requited. The high ad mission f"e of .In i cuts is made impera tive for similar reasons. The fair socie ties need tho mono). The main weakness of this fair, and those wliu li have preceded It in recent cai, is the lack of support upon the part of the tanners. Rutland city people and those from adjoining villages attend ed the fair lu large number. But the number of fanners who attended and who exhibited their products was very much below what It should have been The exhibit of cattle and of poultry was very creditable little better could rea sonably be asked. But In the department of grains and vegetables, horses nnd hogs, the showing was thin good ns far as It went, hut it did not go far. Of course, unless premiums of attractive slzo are offered, many fanners refuse to exhibit, because they look upon the mat ter from a purely business standpoint. A fnrnier dislikes to In lug down a lot of horses and hos,s at an expense of per haps $ and carry away $J1 In premiums. When the whole matter is canvassed. It is diltlcull to outline what could bo done to rcmcd) the present weaknesses. However, here are some suggestions: State associations, State patronage, pop ular admission lee. more support from farmers, larger exhibits, better special attractions. NEEDS OF THE STATE PRESS. (From the Morrlsville News and Citizen.) The State press are saying lots of good things about each other since the recent tlsh and game gathering. This Is all ver.v well, but the best thing Is for all hands to get together and effect an oi'gnnUall"H that will be of pecuniary beneiit to the entire press. PHIZES VS. EXPERIENCE. (From the Bane Times.) The Vermont rifle team did not bung back nny pilzes from Urn national shoot nt Sea dirt N. J., but tiny must have pit-Keel up some valuable experience dur ing their stay. And after nil, expeiieie c counts more in the long run than prizes. POINTED PARAGRAPHS. When n man talks of himself ho can seldom Interest others. Fools never stop to count the cost unl tll tho hill collector calls. When some people do you a favor they never allow you to forget It. Many a man has a great head from other than Intellectual causes. The man who gets there nets as his own crutch; ho doesn't lean on others. Think before you act, but don't spend too much lime thinking. Actions count. During his courtship u man thinks It's n dream; after niarrlnge he Is sorry he woke up. The man who wrecks a train Is a ctlin lnai. but the man who wrecks a whole railroad Is a great financier. Why n lawyer should call any one of his long-drawn-out legal documents a brief Is past all human understanding. It Is well enough for charity to Ik-rIii nt homo, but It has nn excuse for setting down there and going Into a trance Chicago News. A lloy-H Wild Utile for l.lfc.

Adventure., and F.vpcrlcnccs of n I'nrfy f Five Explorers In the Wild nnd Woolly CIiiimiii. As one stands on tho summit of Mount Washington and looks Into the Crawford "leh the eye follows n deep chasm stretching from Blgclow's lawn to the Frankenstein trestle on tho Mulne Cen tral railroad. This Is one of tho wildest and most Inaccessible ravines that penc dnte the sides ot Mount Washington, and has been seldom traversed Its wholu length bv any of tho hundreds of tourists who visit tbo Whlto mountains for pleas the It has been tho scene of largo lum bering operations In past years, but tho territory has been thoroughly skinned of trees, and now scrub, underbrush nnd rolling logs and bridges cover tho ground, Looking down or up ulong this chasm, in which Oakes's Cult debouches, tho task of exploring It seems quite feasi ble, for a half-day's tramp, but tho enthusiast should not be deceived; ho should take a camping outfit for at least two days, and be prepared for one ot tho toughest tnountaln-cllmblng Jobs of his experience. Five well-seasoned mountaineers, whoso names are familiar to most of our read ers, arrived on the summit on a recent evening after a two days' exploring ex pedition through tho tntiRles of this re gion; Mr. nnd Mrs. (leorge A. Flngg and Charles M. Cox of Maiden, Mass., nnd Charles S. Fk'gg of Boston. Their story Is an Interesting ono: "We have boon stopping at the Cave Mountain house, Bartlett. for the past month. Started Wednesday morning to go up on the train. IWt the train nt Wllley station and went around to tho right of Mount Webster, and as soon ns we struck the old abandoned railroad we followed that up. We found all tho bridges that used to stand there washed out and most of the bed ot tho railroad overgrown with brush, except where the fishermen havo kept a path open. This brought us along pretty well until wo had gone two miles or so, when we struck a gorge which was almost Impossible to cross on account of the water being so high. It took us an hour and three qtmi ters to proceed perhaps not more than fifty feet. It Is called the 'Dry River,' but we thought It should be called 'Wet River.' One or two of the party fell Into the brook at some of our many crossovers. We reached the end of the railroad Just at nightfall and pitched ennp. Showers came en, causing quite u III tic bother. It wns about ,S o'clock before we got properly settled down for th- night. "We loll camp early Thursday morn ing, about still following the shore of the river. Tho logging road was pretty good for about a mile, hut after that It was lllled with wind-falls, tops of trees, rotting logs, and every kind of debits under the sun simply Impos sible to stick to It part of the time. We passed a most magnificent water fall, which Is not on any map. It has a fall of about thirty feet. Lioked very nearly as good as the waterfall In Tuck crman's. 'At about 11 o'clock we reached where the cuttings elided. We then made pret ty good progress until we gut Into Oakes's Gulf. Coming up the Hour of the gulf wasn't bad, but when we struck up to wards the Refuge the fun hi gan. Where we came out the headwall was practically vertical; In fact, we were afraid that we would start a slide at any time. The underbrush was so thick that we bad to cut our way through with axes. For about fifty feet we were obliged to pull ourselves up by means of little twigs. Finally we got up where we could look across and see tho rocks and ledges pintrudlng above us. With not more than Win feet of that scrub to get through, It took us nn hour and a half to reach the end. In some places we had to walk on top of the dwarf trees and under bnHi. while in other places we cut our way through. "We reached the Appalachian Refuge nt about quarter of six wb-re we rested for some time, and then came tn the summit by an air line route, which bi'iiight us right by tho Ormshcc mon ument. "The general aspect about the place Is exceditigly wild, far more so than the Ore it Gulf. It is lllled with ruins of the logging operations, the rotted and over turned brldge, adding to the general dis order. We fully agree with Svveetser's Guide that it is a two days' journey from the railroad to the summit. From the place where we camped dining the first night n really splendid view of the summit can le had. As we firm ceded through the pulf, the South ern peaks of the Presidential range all tooli on aspects which were new and strange to us, .Mount Webster looking ver.v dwarfisli Indeed. "We esllmate the distance traveled at about sixteen or seventeen miles, but the turns and windings would probably add many miles lo tills. In one place we spent an hour and a quarter In making two crossings of the river, owing to the dep tli and velocity of the stream. Where we emerged from (he gulf to the bridle path was about half a mile beyond the Appalachian ridge. "Oakes's Gulf has a most peculiar In terest for hnntnnfot, as many rare speci mens of flower are to be found there. "The new growth of wood where the logging operations have been carried on will not amount to anything for many years to come. There Is nothing but scrub birch, and maple, and scraggy bushes growing there now. "It was certainly one of our toughest experiences and one that taxes a man's strength to the utmost, nnd It Is sur prising to be able to say that Mrs. 11. igg stood the strain very well." Friday morning the party proceeded over the Northern peaks to the Madison hut, where they passed the night: thence to Randolph and from there by train to Bartlett. Among tho Clouds. PLANTING BULBS IN THE FA ,L. The time to prepare for the spring feast of flowers Is In tho fall, says Coun try Life lu America. Too often people forget all about it until they see tho tulips in the pinks or in their neighbors' gardens, nnd then they hie to the bulb seller In a quest for bulbs. Generally speaking, from the middle of October until the ground is closed with frost, the bulbs for spring Doweling may be planted. Some of the species are lato In ripening, llly-of-the-valley, for Instance, and so the planting stock Is not avail able until November, lu our Northern climate frost and snow may have made ih'ir appearand before these are pro curable, so the expedient of covering the ground where they nro to bo planted must he adopted. Coarse bagging spread over the ground and a covering of three or four Inches of leaves, hay, or Utter of nny kind will answer. The best bulb garden the writer ever had a small one, 'tis true was planted on New Year's dav, the soil having been kept frost fiee by the method described. However, unquestionably, tho earlier tho better. The first customers get the best stock, nnd the nnialeur will do well to order his hardy bulbs In September, for Octo ber pluntlng. HOW TO PLANT HYACINTHS. (From Country Life In America.) First In Importance among hardv bulbs 1 should place the hyacinths. Much has been written about putting them in post Hon in tho bed and Ihen covering them with soli, putting stud under them, etc.. but In actual practice these slow and laborious methods nro not essential lo success. If, however, tlio planter pre fers to follow the more laborious ami possibly surer method, then remove live or six Inches of the top soil nnd cover the surface of the soil where tho bulbs nre in be set with nn Inch of sand. One advan tage of this method Is thai It enables tho planter to nccurately plnce tlio bulbs In position us lo dptli and distance apart. S" that the effect at llovveiliig time Is more regular as u whole than II plnnte I with a dibber. The la)er of sand hits Us advantage, Inasmuch ns It provides drnln nue jtt the base of tho bulbs and minim Ifcs the chances of decay from contact Willi innnuro r the soil and from water lodging Immedlatelv beneath them The writer has seen good beds of bulbs obtain ed bv both methods, lui the hi' t one de ccribid Is poijslbly the burcr one.

The lumber markets ot the Orient, and the share which tho Trilled Slates Is likely to lmvu In supplying them, is the subject just now of some attention by tho United States department ot com merce and labor. Itecent reports from American consuls In tho Orient an nounced the nrrlval of the first cargo of lumber In the Chinese market, by n Ilus slan vessel from Vladivostok. This fact, opens tho question of future competition for the Oriental market between Un American lumber Interests on tho Pacific coast, on the one band, and that of tho Hussions in Siberia nnd on the Ynlu river, on the other. In both cases enor mous resources are awaiting develop ment. Th" American Industry on Iho Pacific coast has the advantage of or ganization on a lnrge scale, nnd of mo chanlcal equipment unequalled by that of any other field In the world. This Is evidenced by the rate of annual produc tion. Pilonidal estimates put the annual i ut of lumber and shingles of the three Pacific States at l.6no.fK).i)fl feet, of wlili li California supplies .Miii.iuo.On'iU feet, Oregon "I'l.ono.ditj feet, ami Wash ington L'eliiUien.OiiO feet. At this rate it Is calculated that the forests of the Pacific cn.iM will he exhausted in 10 years. As would naturally be expected, the Pacific lumbermen have been rapidly en larging their area and volume ot com meni.il distribution, both hi the foreign and the domestic markets. According to verified figure, the redwood shipments from upper California, mostly to San Francisco and tho southern coast, amounted In 1302 to Wn,."i37,ti03. In addi tion to this, the California coast alone roii Ived iii V.inj. nt;,iv.,!K! feet of plnn and fir; In 1301, 4m.Mri.,-lo feet, and In ID'H .I7'.2rs.013 feet. The rate of Increase, as will he seen by comparison of these fig ures, is enormous. Unifier's Weekly. FOREIGN NOTES.

Atlluent persons who have got tired of navigating Lung Island sound and sail ing ii nnd down the Atlantic const In yachts, find novelty and pleasure in yachting on shore. .Most of them seem to go through the same experience, lle glnnlng with it modest little motor-wagon, run by electricity perhaps, they duly nsfilre and acquire, advancing from car to ear, ouch time a bigger one with more hoisc-power nnd greater speed ca pacity, til. til they have to send lior'-'-s to pasturo and carriages to be stored lo make room In their stables for the collection of di vll wagons.

Can It he that autoinoblllng Is defective as it sport In that It falls to give Its votaries duo physlclal exercise? It looks that way. Clolf, though It may be tiresome.

That is a serious defect in a sport, for our older men es pecially cultivate sports, not so much ns a kill-time, is to keep tho body In such condition ns will best sustain the urgent activities of the mind. If tho automobile can't keep its owner "In condition," It won't have the stable all to Itself, nor leave the golf course bare of Its players. It will not polish, of course but persons who Just now find it their sole recrea tion will have to supplement It with exercises that exercise, Man is intended to work with his mind and body. When human ingenuity succeeds in making nny illlllcult thing like transportation or maintenance so easy that it is no trouble, that partic ular dllhculty ceases In somo measure to perform Us office in keeping; people healthy, and some other dllllctilty has tn be substituted for It. If we could j live without trouble we should have In invent i-ultable forms of trouble to keep us lrom degenerating, nnd that Is pre cisely what folks do whoso lives have been made too easy, nnd who are wise enough to realize It.

I'lllt PLKAS- In a few years pheasants will be bred by nearly ever) body who keeps fancy poultry for pleasute's sak", says Homer Davenport lu Country Life in America for September.

THK CITY FFNCF MUST GO. (Prom Country Life in America.) Tin e development of the modern city residence streit requires the removal cf front fences. It wns not so very long ago that cattle were allowed to loam in tin village as they weie In the muiitty. and fences come with cattle. Wh-n cattle wire removi'l from the streets, tbe leace did not go. Pi-rsens bad come to feel that a fence is as much a purl of any place as a walk or a well is. It had come to be bound up with the idea of the home. The removal of stuck was not sultlcictit reason for the removal of tbe feme. At best, this reason was only negative.

A warm friend of Lady Henry Somer sei, ber last days were spent In Lady Jlenry's Kngllsh home. Mrs. Guliek was educated nt Mount ilulyoke, nnd she taught iheie several years. It was during this time that she became acquainted with Mr. William II. Guliek and tuck a more active Interest in religious work abroad. Thereafter her life centered in the San Sebastian School for Girls, especially dining late years. Sho made several trips through the States collecting funds for It. This school, which Is now called the International Institute for Girls In Spain, has acquired a plot of ground in Madrid for a woman's college on a permanent basis Tho school began in a small circle of Illiterate young Spanish girls in Sun tander. to whom, at their tequest. Mrs. Guliek gnvo Instruction in the rudiments of education, she being then a mission ary of the Woman's Hoard. When she and her husband moved to San Sebas tian the class followed and thus formed tho nucleus of the Institute of to-day. A non-sectnrlan corporation made up of American educatois and friends of education, whose second president was Mrs. Alice Freeman Palmer, undertook the administration of the Institute. The work of bending out native teacbeis from this center to the primary arid secondary schools throughout the coun try lias continued so effectively that 3.KJ0 Spanish children are now under tho tutelage of former students of the In stitute. Seventeen graduates have passed the Statu examination and received tho H. A., which admits them to tho Ful verslty of Spain.
