MEXICO FOR ARBITRATION.
Sentiment in the Republic Favors!
Adoption of That Method. i
Mexico City, Ot. 5-The Em
peror of Austria has conferred the
order of the Irr.n Crown on Gover
nor Cosio, of the "State of Mexico,
9ia:id also on the Bishop of Quere-
taro. Thn Governor and bishop
have both applied to Congress for
permission to wear these decora
tions. Quicksilver has been' discovered
in the State of Guerroro, near the
line of the Mexico, Ouernavaca &
t'aeinc Kail way.
Hie ran-Aiuenean congress is
mjlooKeO torwara to with great in
mjterest. The1 Mexican public senti
mj ment strongly Favors the adoption
;ot a system ot arbitration tor all
of the Republics of North, Cen-
tral ai:dSonth A merica.
It is believed that President
: Roosevelt will lend hi powerful
I support to this idea, which, if
adopted, won Id enhance the prestige
of the United States throughout
(Latin America and offset the anti-
American propaganda carried on
by the clerical party journals from
Mexiuo t0 Oiiile.
WAIST VS FOOT BINDING
Oriental Custom is Chaugiug. But
That of Occident Stands Firm.
Footbinding, the cruel custom
that makes misery for girls in
Chinese hitrh life, has not Quite so
firm a stroughold in the Celestial
empire as formerly. The mission
aries have persistently preached
against it, until it is said that their
words have had some effect.
Prior to the Boxer outbreak a
society for the abolition of the
practice had been founded at Chang
Kiug by Mrs. Archibald Little, the
author of Intimate China." Sev
eral influential mandarins lent their
support to encourage the move
ment. Li Hung Chang's mother
unbound her feet, and the eminent
Chinese statesman himself sub
scribed $100 for the society.
At the same time he made a re
mark for American women to
ponder over: "I will give $100
more, Mrs. Little," he said, "if
you will induce the foreign ladies
iu China to uubind their waists."
Since then the women nfission
aries m China when they have talk
ed to the natives on the evils of
footbinding have been troubled
with uncomfortable recollections of
a Biblical verse that says something
about "the beam in thine own eye."

BERNHARDT TO DIE HERE-
The Lines in "the Divine Sarah V
Hand Sav She Will Visit Us.
Bernhardt, the "divine Sarah,"
has recently had her hand read.
The prophecy of the, palmist which
most pleased her is that she will
live to be 90 years old and will
die in the harness.
The line of destiny, he also de
clared, points to' the conclusion
that she will die in America. In
about nine years' time, he tells lyr,
she will, take up her residence on a
ranch in this country.

They formed many side orders for
the purpose of carrying out their
creed, which ran, something after
this style :
1. The rejection of all fixed rules,
either of religion or morality.

As was to have been expected,
the attempt to force Commission
ers Evans out of the Pension Bu
reau was renewed at the earliest
possible moment after the change
in the presidency. It had become
plain before Mr. McKinley was
shot that the raid on this efficient
public servant conld not sncceed
so long as he remained in the
White House. Mr. Eoosevelt, of
course, had previously had noth
ing to do with the controversy,and
some of Mr. Evans' enemies fan
cied that they might fare better
with the new Presideht. They
have already learned their mistake.
In pur.siyince of his resolution to
carry.it Mr.. McKin ley's policy,
Mr. Roosevelt was morally bound
to stand by the commissioner, as
he has, served notice that he will.
This will be all the easier because
the President is the last man who
would fabor the idea of turning a
good official out for no other rea
son than he had done his work
SUCH QUEER NAMES.
If you think a foreigner's ways
are queer, ask yourself whether
their seeming queerness may not
be due mostly to yonr want
of familiarity. with them.
"You have such strange name,s
for yonr towns over heah !" said a
titled English importation to one
of his new American friends.
"Wehawkeu, Hoboken, Pough
keepsie and ever so many others,
don't you know!"
"1 snppose they do sound queer
to English ears." said the Amer
ican, thoughtfully. "Doyoa live
in London all the time!"
