Tho conditions of Cuba would bo more quiot and peaceful it is thought is there woro offices for nil the brig adier generals in that island. Corkscrew factories report an ab normal demand for their goi-ds from the dry states. This would seem to indicate that every man is learning to be his own butlor. Madam Sembrich says that the greatest futuro for prima donnas lies right hero in America It is evident that Madame knows something about American bank balances. The machine politicians and party leaders that aro scrapping with Gov ernor Hughes of New York aro un consciously strengthening Lib presi dential prospects for tho campaign four years hence. Bro. Smith of tho Tontogany Times 'says: If that New Jersey discoverer who receutly found tho foot prints of the devil in tho little Prudential stato would come to Ohio, ho would fiud tho old man himself over about To ledo. A woman lecturer in New York says there would be a panic through out the country if women should givo up clothes for a year. She's mighty right. There would be rheumatism and bad colds, to say nothing of the appearance of Anthony Comstock. The American cement companies, haying formed a trust, should at least be able to stick together, but are they not carrying it a little too far when thoy build concrete fences around baseball parks without any holes for small boys to peer through. The Masonic lodges in tho state of Texas, it is said, object to Mr. Taft's being made a Mason on sight. They are entirely justified. That goat in the Masonic lodge ought to have due warning and an extra allowance of old tomato cans for such an initiate as the president-elect. An exchange says that one-thirdjof the people in the country think they can beat tho doctor in healing the sick. Two thirds of them think they can put the minister in the holo in preaching the gospel; and all of them think they can beat tho editor in running a newspaper. The suffragettes and and theeman- cipettes are arguing that it will not hurt the babies to be carried to the polls on election day. We second tho opinion. A baby is as safe at the polls as locked in a house while the mother and father go to a danco. Tho tidal waves of prohibition that is rolling downward seems in charac tor to be national, international and Carrie-national. The citizens of any prosperous town aro.always public spirited and united. Cur people should stand to gother, work for tho interests of the whole town. Always stand roady to do your part, Don't grumble and spend your time in prophesying fail ures, but help to make every enter prise a success, be it great or smnll. Bo energetic and enterprising and your example will be imitated. By a vote of nearly two to ono tho California legislature has declined to pass any legislation that would bo likely to embarrass tho national gov ernment in its dealing with Japan However, thero is no objection to tho passage of any bill whatever by tho stato legislature relating to property holding, with the solo provision thut no discrimination is mado against any ono nationality or race. Tho 19th of February, and no ice lins boon takon from tho Mnuraeo rlvor and Btored away for next Sum msr's ubo. Ico dealers and thoso who aro largo consumers of tho frosty pro duct aro beginning to tako notico mid wondor what tho ico harvest will bo and whoro thoy will go to got it. if tho North l'olo does't want to bo d Bioyered, it had better divo under an ico borg, for an Esquimo, with a aciontific education is going after it.

They aro popular in tho quiet villages, the homes of the rich, In the crowded cities, and In the busy market towns. These plays aro written with the object of intensify ing the bltternoss and contempt of the people against the foreigner. Tho story of plunderlngs and massacres of their forefathers is vividly portrayed, with all tho dramatic power that tho actors possess. Tho foreigner Is rep resented as a monster In appearanco. His face Is dragged out of shape and his mouth Is mado to appear near his car. His beard on ono side Is red and on tho other bluo. His eyes aro fierce and staring, and murder is stamped upon his hideous features. Tho peo ple of the interior, who have never come Into actual contact with tho for eigner, have this concoptlon of tho hated barbarian. To tholr minds Americans, French, English, Germans aro all alike, barbarians to bo de stroyed. For That Terrible Itchlnp. Eczema, tottor and salt rheum hoop tholr victims In porpotual torment.

Old Scrooge might be a philanthrop ic Carnegie alongside certain tight wads in Mount Vernon, but William Friedberg has no license to determine publicly who are the men who would squeeze a dollar until the eagle yelled: "Help! I'm melting!" For conducting a voting contest to deter mine the meanest man In Mount Ver non Friedberg, who keeps a cigar storo there, was fined five dollars by Judge Piatt here. A warning went with tho fine. Friedberg lives In Astoria, but does business in Mount Vernon. Ho placed In his window a placard: "Come In and vote for the meanest man In Mount Vernon!" This was followed by a list of names. Conspicuous In the lot were tho mayor and chief of police. Then came many solid and staid citizens. After every name was a number signifying tho votes the owner of the name had received so far. Great wa3 tho wrath of the so-called "meanest men." Friedberg was or dered to take the sign out of the win dow, but he refused to do so. His in dictment for libel followed. In court he pleaded guilty, but asserted he did not know he was violating any law. White Platn3 Cor. New York Sun. The Power of Enthusiasm. Enthusiasm Is one magnet of power. You must fire overy event with It, touch thoughts and acts with It; It will transmute dross into gold, drudgery into delight. What matters If the soul which Hve3 beside you Is cold and selfish. Set him a good example! Joy is sunshine and he will feel it. Every Irksome task is a chance for power. For the qualities which they bring out are God's gifts which fit us to enjoy better things. Easy things will come, If you have spent your heart's blood on gaining strength, for tho very goal of power Is the ease which comes from strength. Wo laugh at things and peo ple who used to cow or annoy us, wo do gracefully and swiftly the tasks, once so hard. One by one, we have unrlveted our chains, we are free! Nautilus. Sensation in "Mystery Ship." Sydney, Australia, has bad a nov elty in the shape of a "mystery ship." An American steamer, the Coronet, arrived by night in the harbor unslg naled and unannounced.

I "Why, you must bo superstitious,"! urged the dame. "No, ma'am,' wound up tho captain; "I'm not, but tho rats are."
