THE NICABAGUAN ROUTE.
Congressman. Willtani Richardson 'of Alabama in a speech delivered in the house, emphasized the Importance to the Southern States of the con struction of an Isthmian canal. At the saroo time ho pointed out that the results would be beneficial to the entire nation. He said that the South wanted an increased commerce and trade, that this ambition would be largely advanced by the prompt con struction of the Nicaraguan canal. Mr. Richardson cited a 'significant ract when lie said that the isthmian canal had been under discussion for more thau fifty years and that these discussions have contemplated the Nicaraguan route. Now, after the obstacle of the Clayton-Dulwer treaty has been removed, after a bill provid ing for the Nicaraguan route has pass ed the house, Mr. Richardson does not think that any thoughtful advo cate of an isthmian canal is justified ih opposing the enterprise with rela tion to the Nicaraguan route. Mr. Richardson said: "The Nicaracuan coast is 600 miles nearer to our eastern frontier, and 3o0 miles nearer our western frontier than the Panama canal. This, according to the most reasonable computation, means five days moro for steamers of average speed and fifteen days for sailing ships by the Nicaragua than by the Panama route a loss of time that is of immense significance to ships of commerce and to our ships of war. We would bo substantially ex cluded from nil voice In a canal built by Costa Rica and Nicaragua with money borrowed from Europe, and our canal at Panama would be more than 400 miles farther from the Unit ed States than the Nicaraguan route. The competition of two canals, one built with European and Asiatic money and the other owned by the United States, would soon lead to antagonisms, and finally result in hostilities." A REPULSIVE SUGGESTION, llulvcatoii Newt. . ' That the Cubans will ever be able to maintain a government unless It is a mere appandage to this, is seriouslv doubted by any one who knows the character of Cuban citizenship and geography. The suggestion of SDeed ily starving these people into a course which they may at a later day eladlv take is repulsive to every principle of honor. The crime suspected may not he Committed.. At thfl samn t.lmo Cuba is isolated In the matter of her export commerce by the 'actions of other nations. Unless concessions are made her by this country her lands must be turned out to waste and her people impoverished. Rattier than that, it would be natural that they would take the only course left open, that is to make their island a part of this country. We complained that Spain murdered when the Cubans did not give freely. Let us not follow by a process of starving be cause the Cubans will not give all even their country. Cuba will un questionably become a part of this country, but when It becomes such, the Cubans should become hopefulfr to enjoy the blessings of a great Re public composed of honest people, and not as a starvling, begging for his life those who have violated their obligations to him and to a world. THE KICKING COwT The Grenade Sentinel says: Every man who has a kicking cow will read with pleasure the remedy below, sent to the Michigan Farmer by a subscriber: "If the subscriber Trum Detroit who applied to a veterinary department for a cure for a kicking cow will take a piece of 3-8 inch rope 8 or 10 feet long, tie a harness ring to one end, pass it around the cow's body In front or uacier and behind the hip bones put the free end through the ring aruw it up good and tight and tie with a half inch how knot, he can sit down and milk his cow without dam ages to himself or her. -, This treatment is easy to bddIv and if. persisted In will break any cow of mcKing without Injuring flier In the least. It will also keep a cow from holding up her milk." NEGRO POSTMASTER. New York Pott. Mr. Ronsevclt has refused to re-ap point a black man as postmaster of Atlanta, Ga., and has nominated a white man as his suecesser. The reason for the President's net Inn was the fact that the negro was offensive to the overwhelming majority nf the patrons of the office, who are mostly white people, Including hundreds of students at the State University rtur ing the greater part of the year. This is the sound principle to apply In the case of every postmaster Is a candi date for the oftlcc a man who Is satis factory to most of those who get and send mail matter? If he is not, that should end the matter, and it makes no diQerence why he is generally un satisfactorywhether because he Is black In color, -Freoch-Canadian by race, a blatant infidel as to religion, a partisan o&the most offensive type, or objectionable in any other way. There should never be a postmaster whose personality, for "any reason, affronts most patrons of the office. Postofflces exist for the public not for individuals, or race, or even to enforce great principles. you ) AliV U HEAD hoises?

To have a thirteen inch waist and to blundine your hair and to wear clothes that simply bur- ran at the passersby why, that is not beauty. Throw away those hip pads, "rats" in your hair and those pinching stays. Lot your lungs have an air bath., Give your ribs; spread Inn out roohl. Be a wholesome, strong, weir developed, happy, and wholly auve young woman. That's real love uness. Don't talk too much about foolish things. Read good ' books, choose good friends and learn some of the possibilities of a really useful and contented life. , . , ., , ( , The bondsmen of ZachMoTeliead, the defaulting ex-treasurer of Leake county, who is described as being liaod less and footless, have settled his shortage with the county.
