"Vast changes are being wrought In y the world's way of doing things. France hasn't had a crisis and Aguln aldo hasn't Issued a proclamation dur ing the past week or more.

Sheikh Mahomet Suleiman, one of the foremost native magnates of Egypt, declares that 80 per cent of his countrymen are not only content with British rule, but are earnestly desirous that It shall be maintained, and he adds that If It were withdrawn the country would within a short time re lapse Into barbarism. Protectorates have a Justification when Buch testi mony can be given. A society In Edinburgh gives Its at tention to caba that stand Idle on fine days, and by engaging them provides free rides for poor old people and in valids. This Is thoughtful and very exemplary, but It is not at all nec essary to organize a society for such a commendable purpose. If you chance to know a poor Invalid or a convales cent, and have the spare coin In your pocket, as well as the generous im pulse In your heart, you needn't call a public meeting Just call the cabman. The constitution of the United States declares that the vice president shall be president of the senate, but shall have no vote, unless there Is an equal division of Its numbers upon any meas ure brought before it for decision. Such a deciding vote Is comparatively rare. The breaking of a tie, as was recently done by Vice President Hobart, shows that the supposition that the office la unimportant, save In the contingency where the Incumbent Is called upon to succeed to the presidency. Is entirely superficial. It la quite within the pos sibilities that an issue of the gravest moment may be determined against the Judgment of half the senate by the Tote of a person not a member and personally obnoxious, and yet the un welcome defeat would come by a pro cess Indisputably constitutional. It is never wise to regard any provision of the constitution as a political trifle. Consul General Du Bols, stationed at St Gall, reports that the Swiss press contains frequent and intelligent arti cles concerning the public school sys tem of the United States, our colleges and universities, our hospitals, our asylums for the insane, blind, deaf and dumb, and for those dependent upon public and private charity for support. To these Institutions are given the highest praise. Recently much has been written about our public libraries. In a late number of the LuBanne Blbllotheque Unlverselle et Revue Suisse an article was published by Mr. Albert Schlnts on libraries of the United States. He described the as tonishing Increase of public Mtrarles In our country, and says that not only does the United States publicly and privately contribute 8ve times as much annually for public library purposes as any ather nation In the world, but It spends nearly as much annually for educational purposes as do England, France and Germany combined.

Santa Cruz was the Filipinos' strong bold in Lake La (iuna liar, and it fell into tho hands of (leneral Law ton's ex pedition after some sharp, quick firing, forming one of the most interesting and important battles of the war. The plans of the American com manders worked perfectly, with the exception that the progress of the ex pedition was delayed by the difficult navigation of the river. About 1,500 picked men, commanded by General Law ton, on account of the illness of General King, partly surrounded the city, while the gunboats La (iuna de Bay, Oenta, and Kapidan, under the command of Captain Grant of the Utah battery, shelled the city and outlying trenches. General Lawton and his staff accom panied the troops, sometimes leading charges in Indian fighting tactics, which eventually resulted in the com plete rout of the rebels with the small est amount of damage to the city and slight loss to the Americans.

Then, again, I come from Vermont, and you know I what that means. To be anything but a Republican in Vermont is to be a i man without a party. My (lag lieu- I tenant comes from Georgia.
