and will make our paper useful to our
patrons. The first place we will look
carefully after the news columns and
editorial page, so that the people will
want to read all of the West Virginian
every day. In the second
place we will give our advertisers
! every consideration with business
principles. We are sending out hundreds
of sample copies every day,
thus reaching people who are not now
reading a daily paper. The West Virginian
will reach many country homes.
Already a number of people on the
Rural Routes have asked to be put on
our mailing list. We will nave correspondents
from most of the leading
centers in the county, and will always

We don't have to wait a week to

How things do change. A little
while ago the Mayor was to blame for
everything, even to the burning of the
barns, but now the poor policemen
are the guilty parties. Oh. Consistency,

Fairmont Judge After Insular Job.
WASHINGTON. D. C.. May 10.?
Senator Klkins called at the White
' House yesterday, accompanied by
- John W. Mason, formerly internal
revenue commissioner, and Judge
Kendall, of the Criminal Court at Fair
a judgeship in the Philippines, and
the Senator accompanied him to the
White House for the purpose of recommending
him to the President.
The above special will be news;
news indeed to Judge Kendall's Fair;
mont friends. We shall be glad to
& see him land the job if he wants it.
, ' Wonder if the Judge will look out lor
a Filipino beauty to keep him coinSf.
.. pany in the Orient? We shall be
| r t sorry to lose him irorn Fairmont.

Fairmont has many industries oi
S ' - _ which our citizens know comparatively
nothing. . The article o<
gy % another page entitled "Along the Belt
} ... JLlne' is woith reading. That is a
busy section out there. Thousands of
are paid out by the various
, ; rjhints in-that part of the city every
v' mouth. Our people ought to kno?
?-Vt''\ : more about our enterprises.
Yesterday's Times said concerning
the West Virginian:
"We think the fusillades against
the mayor because one or two people
d1dn(t pav up their license taxes 'ill
stanter" is somewhat silly, in view of
the fact that heretofore considerable
latitude has been allowed them, and
since within three or four days af'''
the first of May were all paid in,
which is probably the most prompt
settlement ever made since the city
has been collecting such taxes; and
becausj; of the further fact that the
mayor hasn't anything to do with or'
lecting the licenses anyhow."
Now, if we can not Jay such stuff
as that to the stupidity of the editor,
for we give him credit for having a
better sense of discernment than that,
hence we are forced to think, that he
is simply begging the question in the
hope of misleading some one or two
of his followers whom he tries to impose
upon. No one knows better than
the Times editor who is guilty of silliness
in this matter. We were not
urging the payments of the license
nor condemning any one for not paying
"instanter." We were simply try)
in., in bf.1 t? thp Mavor live ur. to liis
declaration in open council that he
would close up all the places whose
proprietors did not pay by V^ednesday
morning. Good as his word, he went
around "bright and early" on the lookout
for his victim and ten to one if it
had been the Prominent Place so often
referred to in the Times, it would
have had a padlock and chain on it
before noon. But there is where the
mayor fell down. He was not. exacting
one of the triumvirate to come
within the pale of his edict and so
he was stuck. Now, taking the Times
at its word once and granting that
some one was silly to try to make the
saloon men "dig up" the money in so
short a time, wonder if the editor
could stumble on to the silly party?
That may be too hard for his sense
of mind to undertake to fathom, but
we will let him guess at it anyhow.
YORK, May 10.?Secretary of
the Treasury Shaw las night indicated
that Congressman Hitt. of Illinois,
might be the Republican candidate
for Vice President. After stating
that Senator Fairbanks was being
urged by party leaders for second
place, he said: "But there is one man
who would make a prince of a candidate.
who up to the present has been
overlooked, art! that is t_ . ngressman
Hitt, of Illinois. Mr. Hitt is one of the
most popular men in Illinois and a
man of such experience in public life
as would eminently qualify him. He
would make a splendid candidate for
The statement of Secretary Shaw's
following conferences held recently
by prominent politicians in this city
is considered significant
Immediately after our county primary
election was held we heard considerable
talk about, probable Democratic
candidates for the various
offices, but nowadays there is perfect
silence in regard to such matters. We
know of a few of the unterrihed who
would like to have an official job, but
whenever they think of the big Republican
majority that confronts them
their courage to become candidates
at once deserts them.

j. The earth, a small wheel in the celestial
mechanism, Is subject to the laws
of the balance as well as to the general
laws of equilibrium which rule,
natter. Thus the southern hemisphere'
should have the same weight as the
northern hemisphere?otherwise how
are we to understand the precise func-:
tionirig of all the slow and rapid movements,
so well compensated, that the
terrestrial globe executes? The bar-;
rnony of these movements could not he
established and eouid not subsist unless
the respective weights of the two heinispheres
were exactly balanced, and In
order that these movements may not
undergo any derangement what must
be the "delicacy of the different compensators
which maintain the earth In
Its orbit?
It is known that the earth Is a spheroid
flattened at the north pole, but
while measurements have been made
ana vemiea. at me equaior auu m iub i
north polar circle the terrestrial decrees
have never been measured at or
In the antarctic circle. Xo geodetic
survey has ever been made beyond the
seventieth degree. The reasons which
lead us to believe in the existence of
a southern polar continent are always
kept before us, although it is probable
that this continent does not exist, and
therefore we must tind another cause
which is capable of maintaining the
earth's equilibrium, since the fact is
that the hemispheres are equilibrated
notwithstanding the greater weight of
the laud of the northern hemispheres.
Every body, according to the energy
of the electrical actions to which it is
submitted, necessarily suffers gain or "
loss of the material items, the disintegrated
particles being drawn in the
direction of the current?a small but at
the same time constant transportation J
of matter, under the influence of which
the negative pole is hollowed and the
positive pole lengthened. It should be
the same in the case of the earth.
Since tli? flattening of the north pole
has been verified, the earth, a solid t
globe, may be lengthened at the south
pole in the same proportion that it is
flattened at the north, this swelling
being composed of fluid matter of
which the molecules slipping rapidly,
the one on the other, are carried to the
place where the need is to balance and
compensate the more or less greater
weight of the other hemisphere. i
The rapidity and facility with which
water<flo\rs are the most logical means (
of securing a mechanical balance for
the purpose of maintaining, without ?
shocks, the movements made necessary
by the gravitation of the earth, the
weight of the oceans balancing the
weight of the raised land on the opposed
hemisphere. The earth is a finished
planet, and whatever may be the
form of the agglomerated solid mass,
the regulating actions of tile oceans
will suffice to establish the equilibrium
of the globe if at any moment it should
be compromised.?Cosmos.
PoImoxioum nnil HariulcwN Snakes.
There is a certain physiological difference
between the poisonous and
harmless snakes which exists very
plainly ill their manner of dentition. .
All snakes are objects of aversion and
dread to mankind, so much so that to
be bitten by a snake has at times been
so fearful to the victim as to have produced
death although the snake was
harmless. Such is the instinctive
dread with which these reptiles are
thought of that it may be desirable to
have some easy mode of distinguishing
the one kind from the other. .This distinguishing
characteristic is afforded
by the teeth. In all poisonous snakes
there are only two rows of teeth, the
fang or fangs being arranged either
within the two rows or outside of
them. The harmless snakes have four
distinct rows of teeth, and when the
bite shows this kind of wound and not
any single deeper or larger puncture g

how many varieties of monkeys exist.
We hear of monkeys in the Indies "v
with reddish brown bodies, black \
heads and faces of a sky blue. There s
are monkeys with white eyelids, and -y
green monkeys, to be found on the ?
African continent and Cape de Verde ?
islands. The howlers, which inhabit
South America, are large and fierce, s
and travelers describe their yells as G
absolutely appalling:. So dreadful, is *
the sound of their growlings and roar- c

the beasts of the forests had gathered f
together for a battle, 'iiiese creatures j
are so fierce that even the most skillful ^
and adventurous trainer is unwilling
to teach iliem tricks.

Likely Forgot It.
