1 [the* re'publ i}- : Theodore Roosevelt, of New York, and Charles Warren Fairbanks, of Indiana. were yesterday nominated for the Presidency and Vice-Presidency, respectively, of the United States. Un-r.oTKiJdc.rl enthusiasm marked their a-"*- ? ? ? ? ? selection by the Republican National ' ..' convention in-"Chicago, and througliout the' Union' the news has been received ' with an?atisfaction the meaning of which nay not be mistaken. There are elements of strength in this ticket that must commend it to every class of our society. First of - all, it is composed of young men. for Mr.. Roosevelt is but 40 years old. while Mr. Fairbanks has just passed his fifty-second birtltday. Of each man it can also be said that to the energy and earnestness of purpose of his youth he adds the knowledge that ias come from active participation in the great affairs of his generation. Botli .men have had the advantage of specific as well as liberal education and both-'have lived close to tlie-peo" pie. for Mr. Fairbanks is a fine example of that characteristic American product, the self-made man. while -Mr. Roosevelt has from personal desire added to his store knowledge alike of life in* the established East and the forryiinp- Wf"St Mr. --Roosevelt and Mr. Fairbanks hoth attained their pre-eminence in public life in the opening of the new ?epoch of our nationality that came -with- the administration of William McKInlev.. Intimately associated with him they saw and had their part in the wiping - out of sectionalism, the waging of the fruitful -war of 1S9S and the establishment of the United States as an acknowledged world power. They aided in the direction of our destinies -during the period of. our greatest prosperity and they- come _^___^ingularly wel 1_ the conservation of that prosperity and for the protection of the new interests that now .belong to the Nation. It is significant, too. that neither **? *- "Doncovhit nor Mr. Fairbanks was ^opposed for the honor that is .now his. They were nominated by^ acclamation and no man may say that his -was a result' of apathy, which, aside from unanimity of desire, would seem "to be the only condition under which such a thing could he possible. The ^enthusiasm that reigned yesterdav in Chicago is proof conclusive that the -convention's work was not done perfunctorily. When Harrison was named at Minneapolis in 1S92 the acclaim That followed was uninterrupted for >he space of 21 minutes, the record ntil that time. When McKinley was nominated rhe second time, at Philadelphia in 1900, the cheering lasted j a. full minute longer than it had eight j years before. But even this record of I 1900 was broken yesterday, when the completion of the ticket provoked a Joyous uproar that lasted for 2.2 minutes. Surely apathy could not have been so stirred as this. Of Mr. Roosevelt's fitness for the Presidency i,t is not necessary to speak. The fidelity and ability with which he has discharged the duties of This high office since McKinley died are earnest enough of the fashion in "which he will conduct himself as its elected occupant. A more available man for the Vice-Presidency could . hardly liave been chosen than II r. Fairbanks. His ehiefest work, otlier things being after their accustomed .nature, will be as President pro ten;, of the Senate. He has been a member of, that body for the past seven years. When chosen his law practice was among the largest in the Middle West, but he laid it all aside and devoted Crawfor Price, $3 lamaii A f himself wholly to the affairs that de| manded his attention as Senator. Few of his colleagues can coast a muhw record and he will succeed to the gavel of the Senate with a thorough knowledge of the Senate's affairs. The issues of the approaching campaign. were outlined at Chicago in the -.vonderful speeches delivered byElihu Root and Joseph G. Cannon The former reviewed the benefits the country i has enjoyed at the hands of Republican administrations in the last eight years, while .Mr. Cannon told of the | prosperity that has come in the 14 years since protection began to be an American principle. N'o other issues can be found aside from those contained in these two speeches, seek as the enemy may .Two men who measure up to or could be measured by these issues more closely than Mr, Roosevelt and Mr. Fairbanks could not be found.?Pittsburg Times. MINISTER AS " AN ADVERTISEMENT Minister as an Advertisement. The minister is put to a good many uses aside front his regular clerical duties. Sometimes he is taken advantage of in the most unexpected ways. A newly-appointed ' English minister was requested hy his wife to stop at a store and -order some groceries. The minister, while on his way to make apastoral visit, called at the shop: in question. It was a -small and unimportant establishment on a back street. . Som,e minutes passed, and as no one appeared, to attend to him. he knocked.on the counter. This.having.no effect,, he "gave- a sicnart double rap, when a curly-headed youngster put his head round the doorpost and lisped: "Father's comin'." By the time -the father arrived the minister, had almost lost his temper. 'U'hat ever do you mean by keeping me waiting ail this time?" he saio sharply. . "I am very sorry, sir," replied the man, ."but you see, it's like this: you're .the first minister as I've had in my shop, and as a good many people seemed to he passing by, I thought what a good advertisement yon was a-standin' there!" The Temperance at ChicagoXew York Sun (Dem).] Because no extraordinary enthusiasm has distinguished the proceedings of the Republican National con vention and because few throats have gone lame from shouting approval and adulation.of Mr. Roosevelt, it. does not follow that tiie Republican campaign will lack energy or caloric. Because the management has offended. alienated and turned out to grass a good many of the old Republican warhorses, it does not follow tfcat the campaign will not he conducted with masterly skill in the moist scientific manner. Because the Hon. Charles \V. Fairbanks is so unlike Mr. Roosevelt in his habits of thought, speech and action as to produce a contract almost humorous at. first sight, it does not follow that Mr. Fairbanks' name will not strengthen the ticket greatly. Better keep these three things in mind in making forecasts for Novem n"r.

"No," said the widow, with a sigh; "Mrs. Butrin does not call upon me any more. She called right after I moved in hero and was perfectly lovely. She did not know I was a widow, and I did not take the trouble to enlighten her. She spied a photograph of the late lamented on the mantel. "'Your dearly beloved. I presume.' she said, with a smirk, and a nodded assent. "She called again a few days later. After a few commonplace remarks she glanced at that photograph again and said in a poor child how I pity you sort i of way: "'My dear, I don't want to make ! any trouble, but I saw him at the the nter the other night with a hi?, stout, blond girl.' "'Great heavens!' I gasped, with affected horror. 'That Is strange. 1 buried him live years ago. What l would you advise me to do?'" j GenoHiN or the .J Ik. j The jig is the oldest of the Irish na! tional dances. Owiug to the analogous word "gigue" and the fact that jigs were danced all over Italy in the sixteenth century, the mistake has some-times been made of supposing the dance to be of southern origin. Against that it may be urged that Gesualdus. /he Italian composer of that time, imitated the old Irish national music, and so the jig may have traveled to Italy as well as the tunes for it. Jigs, too, were danced in Ireland long before the sixteenth century, and, to conclude, no other country would have been allowed to invent It, for, as an insn writer tells us, in refutation of the Italian theory, "the first known dance tune in England, dating back to the thirteenth century, was a kind of jig, and it is certain the English didn't invent it!"
