But abov all we declare that the ringing and Insistent recommendation of Theodore Roosevelt that eongresa oonelder this subject waa responsible for the erlstaliaation of all theories and plans Into the bills known as the National Irrigation Law, whleh was framed and agreed to by all western senators and congressmen, and Introduced simultaneously In the senate and house and whleth would have failed In the house had not Theodore Roosevelt finally brought hie great Indueaoe to bear to so euro Its passage.

CAPITAL AND LABOR, We submit the labor record of the Re publican party agalnat the professions of Democracy. Republlcanlem has built up a tariff wall about thla country which gives the American markets to the pro ducts of American labor. It has In every State where In power enacted legislation favoring shorter hours and sanitary con ditions of labor, prohibited child labor, and passed stringent laws for the safe guarding of the life and limb of em ployees. It has tinder Theodore Roosevelt substituted arbitration, as In the coal strike, for the bullet and bayonet of the last Democratic administration In Its set tlement of the Pullman strike. Promising little, performing much, It has been the true and tried friend of both capital and labor, whom It holds as equal and con cordant parts of the nation's Industrial economy. The Republican party will not support capital tn oppression nor labor In violence. It recognises organised labor aa the unity of Industrial action, striving to secure a more equitable distribution of the fruits of Industry. It Is the trusted ally ot both capital and labor; for capital In the things which are essential to the successful government of enterprises and with labor In Its crusade for reasonable hours at the highest wages consistent with the succeseful conduct of business.

Dr. Lapponl, the famou? physician to the Vatican, whose name has re cently come so greatly to the front on account of bis unremitting atten tion to His Holiness, the late Pope Leo XIII., and the high esteem and confidence with which he Is regarded by the present Pope, His Holiness, Piux X. Is a man of commanding genius. He Is more than a mere man of science; he is a man of original and Independent mind. Untrammeled by the "etiquette" of the medical, pro fession, and having used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People In his prac tice with good results, be freely avows the facts and endorses the value of this remedy with an authority which no one will venture to question. Dr. Lapponl's Letter. "I certify that I have used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills In four cases " of the simple anemia of develop ment. After a few weeks ot treat ment, the result came fully up to my expectations. For that reason I shall not fall In the future to extend the use of this laudable preparation not only In the treat ment of other forms ot the cate gory of anemia or chlorosis, but also In cases of neurasthenia and the like." (Signed) GIUSEPPE LAPPONL Via del Gracchi 332, Rome. The "simple anemia of develop ment" referred to by Dr. Lapponl Is, of course, that tired, languid condition of young girls, whose development to womanhood is tardy and whose health at that period Is so often im periled. His opinion of the value ot Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale Peo ple at that time Is of the highest sci entific authority and it confirms the many published cases tn which anemia and other diseases of the blood, as well as nervous diseases, such as ner vous prostration, neuralgia, St. Vitus' dance, paralysis and locomotor ataxia have been cured by these pills. They are commended to the public for their efficiency tn making new blood and strengthening weak nerves. After such an endorsement they will be ac cepted by the medical and scientific world at their full value. Ringing Bella to Swarm Bees. It is a foolish notion to suppose that the ringing of belle or "tanging" of tin pans will cause a swarm of bees to settle. The real origin of this cus tom dates back to the reign of Alfred the Great, who In order to prevent dis putes regarding the ownership ot a swarm ordered that the owner should always ring a bell when his bees swarmed; and, ever Blnce then, the good farmer's wife has been rushing out with racing bells whenever the bees swarmtaUand the fact that they settled verified, her own mind, the belief that the bell did It.

The Turn of the Tide. The ' great events of most lives occur in epochs. After Hyde's and Katherlne's marriage, there waa a long era noticeable only for auch vicissitudes as were Incident to their fortune and position. But In May, A. D. 1774, the first murmur of the returning tide of destiny was heard For- the trouble between England and her American colonies was rapidly culminating and party feeling ran bigh, not only among civilians, but throughout the royal regiments. Re cently, also, a petition had been laid before the king from the Americans then resident In London, praying him not to send troops to coerce his sub jects in America, and, when Hyde en tered his club some members were engaged In an a angry altercation on this subject. "The petition was flung Pn the table, as it ought to have been," said Lord Paget. "You are right," replied Mr. Her vey; "they ought to petition no long er. They ought now to resist. The Duke of Richmond spoke warmly for Boston last night. 'The Bostonians are punished without a hearing,' he said, "and, if they resist punishment, I wish them success." Are they not Englishmen, and many of them born on English soil? When have English men submitted to oppression? Neither king, lords, nor' commons can take away the rights of the people. It is past a doubt, too, that his majesty, at the levee last night, laughed when he said he would just as lief light the Bostonians as the French. I heard this speech was received with a dead silence, and that great offence was given by It." "1 think the king was right," said Paget passionately. "Rebellious sub jects are worse than open enemies like the French." "My lord, you must excuse me if I do not agree with your opinions. And the light has begun, for Parliament is dissolved on the subject." "It died," laughed Hyde, "and left us a rebellion for a legacy." "Capt. Hyde, you are a traitor." "Lord Paget, I deny it. My sword Is my country's; but I would not, for twenty kings, draw it against my own countrymen," then with a meaning glance at Lord Paget, and an emphatic touch of his weapon "except In my own private quarrel." "Gentlemen," said Mr. Hervey, "this Is no time for private quarrels; and, captain, here Is my Lady Capel's foot man, and ne Bays he comes in urgent speed." Hyde glanced at the message. "It la a last command, Mr. Hervey. Lady Capel is at the death point, and to her requests I am first bounden," Lady Capel had been edath-strlcken while at whist, and was stretched upon a sofa in the midst of the desert ed tables, yet covered with scattered cards and half-emptied teacups. At this hour it was evident that, above everything in the world, the old lady had loved her wild, extravagant grandson. "Oh, Dick," she whispered, "I've, got to die! We all have. I have left you eight thousand pounds all I could save, Dick. Arabella is witness to It. Dick, Dick, you will think of me sometimes?" And Hyde kissed her fondly. "I'll never forget you," he answered, "never, grandmother, is there any thing you want done? Think, dear grandmother." "Put me beside Jack Capel. I won derif I shall see Jack." A shadow, gray and swift, passed over her face. Her eyes flashed one piteous look into Hyde's eyes, and then closed forever. And while in the rainy, dreary Lon don twilight Lady Capel was dying, Katherlne was tn the garden at Hyde Manor, watching the planting of seeds that were In a few weeks to be living things of beauty and sweetness. Little Joris was with his mother, running hither and thither, as bis eager spirits led him. Katherlne had heard much ot Lady Capel, and she had a certain tender ness for the old woman who loved her husband so truly; but no thought of her entered Into Catherine's mind that calm evening hour. Then her maid, with a manner full of pleasant ex citement, came to her and said: "Here be ft London peddler, ma dam: and he do have all the latest fashions and the news of the king and the Americans." . In a few minutes the man was ex hibiting his wares to Katherlne, and she was too much interested in the wares to notice their merchant par ticularly. There was a . slow but mutually satisfactory exchange of goods and money, and then the ped dler began to repack his treasures, and Lcttlce to carry away the pretty trifles and the piece of satin ber mis tress had bought. Then, also, he found time to talk, to take out the last newspapers, and to describe the popular dissatisfaction at the stupid tyranny of the government toward the Colonies. Katherlne was about to leave the room, when he suddenly remembered a scarf of great beauty which he had not shown. "I bought it for my Lady Suffolk," he said; "but Ird Suffolk died Btid den, and black my lady had to wear." A singular look of speculation came Into Katherine's face, and as the ped dler detailed with hurried avidity the town talk that had clung to her reputa tion for so many years; and he so fully described the handsome cavalr.' officer that was her devoted attendant that Katherlne could have no difficulty In recognizing her husband, even with out the clews which her own knowl edge of the parties gave her. Suddenly she turned and faced the stooping man: "Your scarf take; I will not have it No, and I will not , have anything that I have bought . from you. All of the goods you . shall NEW YORK E. BARK Thou an4 the Other One." Eta. Iteea eaa Compear. receive back; and my money, give It to me. You know that of my husband you have been talking I mean lying. You know that-this is his bouse, and that his true wife am I." She spoke without passion and with out hurry or alarm; but there was no mistaking the purpose In her white, resolute face and fearless attitude. And with an evil glance at the beau tiful, disdainful woman standing over him, the peddler rose and left the house. CHAPTER XIV. The Bow of Orange Ribbon. Katherlne sat down and remained still as a carven Image, thinking over what had been told her. There had been a time when her husband's con stant talk of Lady Suffolk had paiued her, and when she had been a little jealous of the apparent familiarity which existed in their relations with each other; but Hyde had laughed at her fears, and she had taken a pride In putting his word above all her sus picions. It was also a part of Katherine's just and upright disposition to make allowances for the life by which her husband was surrounded. Hyde had told her that there were necessary events In his daily experience of which it was better for her to be Ignorant. "They belong to it, as my uniform does," he said; "they are a part of its appearance, but they never touch my feelings, and they never do you a moment's wrong, Katherlne." This explanation It had been the duty both of love and of wisdom to accept; and she had done so with a faith which asked for no conviction beyond it. And now she was practically told that for years he had been the lover of another woman; that her own exist ence was doubted or denied; that, If It were admitted. It was with a supposi tion that affected both her own good name and the rights ot her child. Hyde was the probable representative of an ancient noble English family, and its influence was great; If he really wish ed to annul their marriage, perhaps it wag In big power to do so. She waa no craven, and she faced the position In all its cruel bearings. She asked herself If even for the sake ot her little Jods, she would re main a wife on sufferance, or by the tie of rights which she would have to legally enforce; and then she lifted the candle and passed softly Into his room to look at him. She slipped down upon her knees by the sleeping boy, and out of the terror and sorrow of her soul spoke to the Fatherhood in heaven. The boy suddenly awoke; he flung his arms about her neck, he laid his face close to hers and said: "Oh, mother, beautiful mother, I thought my father was here!" "You have been dreaming, darling Jorls." "Yes; I am sorry I have been dream ing. 1 thought my father was here my good father, that loves us so much." Then, with a happy face, Katherlne with kisses sent him smiling into dreamland again. In those few tender moments all her fears slipped away from her heart. "I will not believe what a bad man says against my huB band against my dear one who is not here to defend himself. Lies, lies! I will make the denial for him." And she kept within the comfort of this spirit, even though Hyde's usual letter was three days behind Its usual time. On tne fourth day her trust had Its reward. She found then that the delay had been caused by the neces sary charge and care of ceremonies which Lady Capel's death forced upon her husband. She had almost a senti ment of gratitude to her, although she was yet ignorant of her bequest of eight thousand pounds. For Hyde had resolved to wait until the reading of the will made It certain, and then to resign his commission and carry the double good news to Katherlne him self. Henceforward, they were to be together. So this purpose, though un expressed, gave a Joyous ring to his letter; It was lover-like In its fond ress and hopefulness, and Katherlne thought of Lady Suffolk and her emis sary with a contemptuous Indiffer ence. ward" was upon every face. Alas! these are the unguarded hours which sorrow surprises! But no thought of trouble, and no fear of it, had Katherlne, as she stood before her mirror one afternoon. She was watch ing Lettice arrange the double folds of her gray taffeta gown, when there came a knock at her chamber door. "Here be a strange gentleman, ma dam, to see you; from London, he do say." A startled look came into Kather ine's face; she asked no question, but went down stairs. Soon she came back slowly, with a letter in her hand. She was white, even to her lips. Fully ten minutes elapsed ere she gathered strength sufficient to break Its well known seal, and take in the full mean ing of words so full of agony to her. "It is midnight, beloved Katherlne, and In six hours I may be dead. Lord Paget spoke of my cousin to me in such terms as leaves but one way out of the affront. I pray you, If you can, to pardon me. You I shall adore with my last breath. Kate, my Kate, forgive me. If this comes to you by strange hands, I shall be dead or dying. Kiss my son for me and take my last hope and thought." These words-she read, then wrung her hands nnd moaned like a creature that had been wounded to death. Oh, the shame! Oh, the wrong and sor row! How could she bear it? What should she do? Capt. Lennox, who had brought the letter, was waiting for her decision. If she would go to her husband, then he could rest and return to London at his leisure. If not, Hyde wanted his will, to add a codicil regarding the eight thousand t i t a a a a A FTTV ww pounds left him by Lady Capel. For he had been wounded in his aide, and a dangerous Inflammation having set In, he had been warned of a possible fatal result Katherlne was not a rapid thinker. She had little, either, of that Instinct which serves some women Instead of all other prudences. The one thought that dominated all others was that her husband had fought and fallen for Lady 8uffoIk. All these years she had been a slighted and deceived woman. "To London I will not go," she de cided. "There Is some wicked plan for me. The will and the papers are wanted, that they may be altered to suit It I will stay here with my child. Even sorrow great as mine la best borne In one's own home." She went to the escritoire to get the papers. When she opened the sense less chamber of wood, she found her self In the presence ot many a tortur ing, tender memory. In an open slide there was a rude picture of a horse. It was little Jorls' first attempt to draw Mephisto, and it had been care fully put away. The place was full of such appeals. Among them was a ring that Hyde's father had given him, bis mother's last letter, a lock of his son's hair, her own first letter the shy, anxious note that she wrote to Mrs. Gordon. Then she began to arrange the papers according to their size, and a small sealed parcel slipped from among them. She turned It over and over in her hand, and the temptation to see the love-token Inside became greater every moment. "If In this parcel there is some love pledge from Lady Suffolk, then I go not; nothing shall make me go. If in it there is no word of her, no mes sage to her or from her; If her name Is not there, nor the letters ot her name then I will go to my own. A new love, one not a year old, I can put aside. I will forgive every one but my Lady Suffolk." So Katherlne decided as she broke the seal with firmness and rapidity. The first paper within the cover made her tremble. It was a bait sheet which she had taken one day trom Bram's hand, and It bad Bram's name across it On It she had written the first few lines which she bad the right to sign "Katherlne Hyde." It was, indeed, her first "wife" letter; and within it was the precious love-token, her own love-token the bow of orange ribbon. She gave a Bharp cry as It fell upon the desk; and then she lifted and kissed it, and held It to ber breast, aa she rocked herself to and fro In a passionate transport ot triumphant love. (To be continued.) NEW GUTTA PERCHA TREE. Valuable Discovery Recently Made In the Valley of the Amazon. Up to quite recent date the world has relied on the rubber tree for its supply of gutta percha, and on ac count ot the limited area In which thla plant grows the product has been ex ceedingly expensive. A short time ago a gutta percha merchant in the Guia nas in examining the Amazon region in South America found the balata tree growing in abundance near Para and on the Amazon and its tributaries for thousands of miles. The Brazilians had no knowledge of its gum-producing properties and were found cutting down the trees for firewood and build ing material. A concession was bought and the practical work of producing gutta percha for the market begun. There Is practically no limit to the supply of gutta percha on the Amazon and it can be produced at a fraction of the cost of rubber. The method of "bleeding" the balata tree Is entirely different from that used to extract the gum of the rubber tree and only ex pert "bleeders," it is said, can be employed. The trees yield many times as much sap as the rubber trees and one man can gather as much gutta percha in a day as twenty man can extract from the rubber tree. Each tree will average three and a half pounds and one competent "bleeder" can prepare forty to fifty pounds per day. The gum is fermented and then dried in the sun, after which It Is ready for shipment. Punishing a Chinese Striker. Punishment of 100 blows and two weeks' Imprisonment was the sentence of a Shanghai court In a recent case of an engineer who left his employers without due notice. Because other employes of the company profited by an advance in wages and the engi neers were overslaughed and defend ant in company with seven other en gineers struck. Aas a result the launches on which they were at work were left idle for an entire morning and fitters had to be brought out ot the machine shops ta lake the places of the strikers. The company prose cuting the case contended that as tho men were employed by the month they should have given a month's notice of their Intention to leave, a position In which it was upheld by the court. Warrerts are out for the other seven strikers. Labor unions have apparent ly not yet secured a hold In the Orient. 8ome Court Deelsiona. A recent decision by a Missouri crairt relative to the kicking propen sities and total depravity of the mule recalls a decision of an Irish Judge that bees are "dangerous and malici ous creatures," and that no one has a right to keep them in unreasonable numbers or in an Improper place. Both decisions may be set down among the curiosities of legal wlBdom with the decision that pigeons are not domestic animals, that frogs are fish and that horses are cattle. It has at least to be decided what Is an unrea sonable number of bees. Leland, It self has somewhere between 20,000 and 40,000 hives, yielding honey by hun dreds of tons in a year, and the largest bee-owner in the world, who lives In California, has 6.000 hives which are worth a handsome fortune every year. Nothing more completely baffles one who Is full of trick and duplicity than straightforward and simple integrity In another Ccl'on. Even the very old colleges still re tain their fculti;s.
