A few college presidents are railing
at the gifts by millionaires to libraries
and educational institutions, but they
seem to be the kind that miss all the
good things in their line.
Fighting in South Africa has degen
erated into something like butchery.
Winter 1b coming on in that region,
and the world would be glad to hear of
less vengeance and more reason.
The Porto Ricans are, experiencing
American prosperity. Business of all
kinds in the island is better now than
in many years. Df course, it will be
still better as soon as the islanders be
come thoroughly Americanized and
.adopt American methods. The advan
ces, too, which will come soon In ths
island's political status will help all
sorts of trade among its people. A full
territorial government for the PortoL
Ricans is sure to be granted within th
next few years. Then state -government
will not be far in the distance. This
is the kind of "imperialism" which Is
in store for the newAmericans of the
Gulf of Mexico.
In the work of Americanizing Eng
land a few magnates from the United
States have obtained control of some of
London's street railways. This is n
good place to begin. The railroads are
going to be newly equipped, and in
this work American engineers will have
to be employed.' The British engineers
seem to be many years behind their
brethren on this side of the water. Tht
"English concern don't know the value
of a scrap heap," says Yerkes, the Chi
cago man, who has taken hold of Lon
don's underground railway. This is a
good time for the British, French and
German papers to repeat their cry
about Europe's financial subjugation
by the United States.

The remarlt"has boen frequently been
made In dlscuiond ofMhe Chinese lnT
domnlty question thatJapan should be
entitled" ti' an e-jjtra, pilawancebecauss
she would have to pay a. higher rate
of interest on a loan than some of the
other powers, her credit not .being bo,
good as theirs. , This, taken with the
te6ent abandonment of. .Important pub
lic works and the rebu'dtatlon of Vis
count Watanabets Bu'dgetTo'f which wo
have already spoken, would seem to In
dicate that Japan Is in a ba'd way finan
cially. Statements to that effect have
ben made, and Japan has been, held up
as "a 'horrible example" of a nation
mined through extravagant military
expenditures. As a matter of fact, Ja
pan Is suffering from a great scarcity
of ready money. Yet it is entirely
wrong t,o say that she is nearlng bank
ruptcy, that she. Is impoverished or
that her people are crushed by taxation.
The facts' are Just the .opposite of
these. Despite an enormous increase
in national revenues, taxation In Japan
Is actually lower than ever before. The
national revenue is now "more than
$100,000,000 a year, instead of $43,000,
000,000 ten years ago. But it must be
noted that the government's receipts
from its propeity and works were only
$4,000,000 then, while they are nearly
$24,000,000 now. So the receipts from
the liquor tax have risen from $7,500,
0000 to $27,000,000. In these two Items,
then, we have a gain of $40,000,000 in
revenue without the sllghest increase
in direct taxation. If the whole Bud
get be similarly analyzed It appears
that taxation has risen not from $43,
000,000 to $100',000,000, but from $26,
000,000 to $41,500,000, an Increase of
less than CO instead of more than 100
per cent. But we may go further than
this, and observe that If we take into
account the altered ratio between gold
and silver, and remember that the yen
Is now reckoned on .a gold basis, tax
ation is actually less in gross amount
than it was ten years ago.
Nor is this calculation theoretical.
It Is practically demonstrated by the
condition of the empire and its people.
There is an air of prosperity .every
where. Wages are rising they have
doubled in ten years. Business is good.
All industrial enterprises are making
money. And yet there is no stringency
in the money market. Government
bonds bearing 5 per cent, interest are
sold at 89, and it is believed that afresh
loan could not be placed at above 85
or 86. The reason of this state of af
fairs seems to be that the rapid expan
sion of Japanese Industries in recent
years has absorbed' and' fastened up all
available working capital, and for one
reason or another additional capital has
not been sought or received .from
abroad. Japan, In other words, is try
lng to carry on too much business on
too little capital. In time the situa
tion may be relieved through natural
processes, and Japan seems inclined to
seek such a solution of her difficulties
rather than Incur in any way .a heavy
foreign debt! In the meantime she
presents the strange spectacle of a rich
and prosperous nation in financial
LAUGHTER AND DEATH.
Several items in the news of late
have emphasized the importance of
protecting the bedridden from the hu
mor of misguided friends. Only the

the will of his uncle because he related

perils of 100 years, a stoiy so funny as
to cause the old man to swallow his
Similar is the case of Mrs. Mary
Zenn. She was only 22 years old, wa3
fair to see, had a good husband and
naturallj looked forward to many years
of peace and plenty. Some trifling
illness attacked her and several friends
who heard she was despondent went
to see her. One of these, in an at'
tempt to levive theinvalids' waning in
terst in life, told her the funniest story
she ever had heard. The young woman
laughed immoderately. She was too
weaok to do justice to theanecdote, evi
dently, for .after she laughed for an
hour or two she began to hiccough.
For ten dreadful ' days two doctors
sought to restore her gravity. It was
useless. Exhausted by the exertion
she departed this life. The grief-stricken
raconteur lied from her friend's bed
side after raising a gust of laughter
which, she saw too late, she could not

Ids' chamber in these torrid July days
should not -give free rein to their sense
of humor. It may be that to die a

this sphere of trouble, but-the average
invalid often prefers to live and groan
a little longer.
