The letter which Commodore Perry bore from our government to the mi kado asked lor a mutual treaty. The original Instrument was drafted in May, 1851, by Daniel Webster, then secretary of state, and was signed by President Fillmore. There It rested. In November, 1852, Mr. Webster's suc cessor, Edward Everett, fished It out of the department pigeon holes, took it to pieces and refashioned it, says Century, Three copies were prepared and were splendidly engrossed In Eng lish, Dutch and Chinese. These were inclosed together in a sumptuous gold case and, to make the whole present ment still more impressive to the Jap anese mind, the gold case was en shrined in a coffer of rosewood. The document intrusted to Commo dore Perry asked of the Japanese court two things, friendship and trade —first and foremost, friendship, for the safety of our seamen. Many a hapless crew had been driven Into their ports by storm or wrecked on their rocky coast, escaping the peril of the deep only to be welcomed by those truculent islanders to a dungeon of a cage on shore. This wrong must be stopped at all hazards. And If, in addition, we could persuade Japan to enter friendly relations of trade, the two countries by mutual interchange of productions, might, each promote its own prosperity and the welfare of the other. It was thought that orien tals might see that as well as Yankees. In the end they did. But it cannot be said that Japan, any more than an oyster, every really yearned to be "opened.'' His Musical Ear. It isn't always best to brag about your gifts. Out on one of the boule vards lives a man who lays claim to a musical ear and plays a little on the piano. Frequently he has criti cised his wife for what he called her inability to carry a tune. "Your ear, if you had a musical one, as I have, would show you how to carry a .tune," he would say. One day he complained that the piano was out of tune and asked his wife to telephone for a tuner. She de cided to test his "musical ear," so that night when he came home from his business she said: "Will you please try the piano and see if the tuner has done it any good. I haven't any ear and cannot tell, but you can." The man sat down at the Instru ment and played a simple tune. "It's all right now, 1 ' he said. "That fel low did a good job." His wife summoned up her courage. "Will," she said. "The tuner didn't come to-day. He's coming tomorrow morning."—Kansas City Times. John Hay No Faddist. "The late John Hay," said a Chica goan, "had no belief in fads. He held that we Americans, in our impetuosity, were given to fads overmuch. It was this one trait in us alone that would ever suffice to shake Mr. Hay out of his exquisite equanimity. "He was walking with me one day in London. At Hyde Park corner a vegetarian from Frisco joined us, and, as we strolled onward, this vegetarian talked hotly about the evils of meat eating, trying, it seemed, to convert Mr. Hay and me to his fad. "Mr. Hay listened patiently for quite half an hour. Then suddenly, he stopped short. He thumped the pavement with his walking stick. He pointed eastward. " 'There,' he said, 'stands Piccadilly. There it has been for hundreds of years. And there it will be when you and your potato beliefs are forgot ten.' " Archduke's Earned Florin. Among the bequests of the Arch duke Joseph of Austro-Hungary to his son is "the only florin I ever really earned. It hangs In a gold-rimmed tortoise shell frame above my desk at Buda-Pesth." The archduke earned it at Flume by showing a French en gineer from Creuzot over the gardens and greenhouses of his place there. This person had rung at a private gate, which the archduke opened, and, thinking the latter a steward's as sistant or a gardener, asked him to take him around, he understanding that strangers were admitted to see the grounds. Archduke Joseph rather enjoyed the mistake and said he would be very pleased. He talked in a plain, blunt manner and seemed so little the man of consequence that the visitor on leaving presented him with a florin for the trouble he had been at. A Japanese Song.

Daring the coarse of the fever the nerves are always profoundly disturbed, and when it is over they are left so sensitive that the patient has to be guarded against all excitement. In the tonic treatment then demanded, regard mnst he paid not only to building up flesh but. also to strengthening the nerves. A remedy that will do both, make sound flesh to repair waste and give new vigor to feeble nerves, is the most convenient and economical. Such a remedy is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. One proof of this is the experience of Mr. Charles Worth, of East Vassalboro, Maine. He says : " I had a severe at tack of typhoid fever late in the fall which left me very weak and debilitated. My heart palpitated, my breathing be anie difficult after the least exertion and there was numbness in both hands. I suffered in that way for fully six months. As I did not grow out of it, did not in fact see the slightest improvement as time passed, I decided to use Dr. Wil liams' Pink Pills as I knew of some cures they had effected in cases like mine "Almost as soon as I began taking them I could see decided improvement and after keeping on with them for several weeks I was completely well. I consider Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a most valuable remedy, and I am in the habit of recommending them to others afflicted as I was." When the nerves ache and trem ble it means that they are starving. The only way to feed them is through the blood, and the best food is Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

Sudden Conclusion of Terms Between Warring Nations Comes as Pleas ing Surprise Just When it Looked Most Gloomy for an Agree ment. Portsmouth, N. H.—The long and bloody war between Japan and Russia is ended. The terms of peace were agreed upon by M. Witte and Baron Komura at the session of the confer ence Tuesday morning, and Tuesday afternoon preliminary arrangements for an armistice were concluded and the actual work of framing the "treaty of Portsmouth" was by mutual agree ment turned over to M. De Martens, Russia's great International lawyer, and Mr. Dennison, who for twenty-five has acted as the legal adviser years of the Japanese foreign office. This happy conclusion of the con ference, which a week ago would have been shipwrecked had It not been for the heroic intercession of President Roosevelt, was sudden and dramatic. For the sake of peace, Japan, with the magnanimity of a victor, at the last moment yielded everything still In is sue. Russia refused to budge .from the ultimatum Emperor Nicholas had giv to President Roosevelt through Embassador Meyer. No indemnity un der any guise, but an agreement to di vide Sakhalin and reimburse Japan for the maintenance of prisoners were his last words. They had been repeatedly reiterated in M. Instructions, and, in the form of written reply to the Japanese com promise proposal of last week, they were delivered to Baron Komura. M, Witte feared a rupture and as was en Witte's a he expressed it afterward, he stunned by what happened. Komura gave way on all the disputed points. With the prescience that has enabled the Japanese to gauge mental processes of their adversaries the field of battle and upon the sea, they had realized in advance that could be obtained in no other They had warned their govern Baron the on peace way. ment. President Rooseevlt had also, It is believed, advised Japan that It was better to meet the Russian position than to take the responsibility of continuing the war for the purpose of collecting tribute. The mikado, at the advice of the cabinet and elder statesmen, had sanctioned the final concession. When Baron Komura child's yielded, the rest was play. Article 10 and 11 (Interned warships mere and the limitation of Russia's sea with power in the far east) were drawn. Japan agreed that only that portion of the Chinese Eastern rail road south of Chantfu, the position occupied by Oyama, should be ceded to Japan. Both sides, once the dead lock was broken, wanted a "just and lasting" peace, and in that respect it was decided to neutralize Sakhalin, each country binding Itself not to for tify its half of the Island, and Japan assuming an obligation not to fortify La Perouse strait, between Sakhalin and Hokkaido, which would bar Rus sia's commercial route to the Pacific. The plenipotentiaries went further. They decided to add a new clause in the nature of a broad provision for mutual commercial privileges which each country will secure for the other the benefit of the "most favored nation" clause and "the open door." The new treaty, therefore, will be a wonderfully friendly document, of a character almost to raise the picion that the two countries have not negotiated peace, but have concluded the basis of a future alliance. There Is, however, no evidence, as rumored, that any secret clauses are to be ap pended to the present treaty. Before leaving the conference build ing felicitations were exchanged with the president at Oyster Bay. Both Baron Komura and M. Witte tele graphed. The former confined him self to apprising Mr. Roosevelt of the conditions upon which peace been concluded. M. Witte frankly laid his tribute at the president's feet. In his message he said "History will ascribe to you the glory,''and added the expression of Russia's hearty appreciation of the president's Mr. Roosevelt replied with words of thanks and congratulation. by BUS had Initiative." "generous Japan Entitled to a Place In the Councils of Nations. York—That Japan achieved all she fought for, and that the question of indemnity was of mi nor importance compared to the es tablishment of her position among the nations and other advantages gained, was the opinion of Baron Kaneko, the Japanese emperor's finan cial agent In this country, expressed after he had received dispatches from Portsmouth confirming the published reports of peace. has New SENATOR SULLIVAN S«yt Hs Has Found Doan's Kidney Pills Invaluable in Treating Sick Kidneys.

"Firedamp' words brought into terrible promin ence in many disasters In mines, pre serve the older English sense of "damp"—vapor, and especially nox ious vapor. Precisely where the word came from philology does not know, but the earliest existence of Its use quoted by Dr. Murray's dictionary is Caxton's (1480)—"after the dragon shal come a goot and ther shal come out of his nostrel a domp that shal betoken honger and grete deth of peple." Bacon is one of the writers of his time who speak of the "damps" of mines. "Damp" gradually came to be applied to visible vapors, such as evening mists, and tbe transition to the sense of moistur/s is obvious. But In "damping down" a furnace one finds a relic of the verb "damp" in the sense of "suffocate." and 'afterdamp,' The Good Mixer. "He's a good mixer," or "He Isn't a good mixer," are expressions you ofton hear. A "good mixer" Is sup posed to be a man who can associate with people and make business. A poor mixer Is one who makes friends slowly, who minds his own business and is not much of a rounder. A man who gives his business close attention Is the best "mixer." When people are In need of a certain article they buy where they can get the best and cheap where conditions suit them. When people are buying articles they need they do not care whether the dealer is a "good fellow" or not. We have never thought much of the "good-mixer" Idea.—Atchison Globe. est OUST THE DEMON. A Tussle with Coffee. There is something fairly demoni acal In the way coffee sometimes wreaks Its fiendish malice on those who use it. A lady writing from Calif, says: — "My husband and I, both lovers of coffee, suffered for some time from a very annoying form of nervousness, accompanied by most frightful head aches. In my own case there was eventually developed some sort of af fection of the nerves leading from the spine to the head. "I was unable to hold my head up straight, the tension of the nerves drew It to one side, causing me the most Intense pain. We got no relief from medicine, and were puzzled as to what caused the trouble, until a friend suggested that possibly the cof fee we drank had something to do with it, and advised that we quit It and try Postum Coffee. "We followed hie advice, and from the day that we began to use Postum we both began to improve, and in a very short time both of us were entirely relieved. The nerves became steady once more, the headaches ceased, the muscles In the back of my neck relaxed, my head straightened up and the dreadful pain that had sc punished me while I used the old kind of coffee vanished. "We have never resumed the use ol the old coffee, but relish our Postum every day as well as we did the former beverage, lighted to find that we can give It freely to our children also, something we never dared to do with the old kind of coffee."
