With a largo increase in tho forco of

minion is rapidly getting back to where
it was before tho big slump began.
Governor Sparks seems to have been
somewhat premature in asking tho gov-.
ernment'for troops for Goldfield. His
reason for doing so "to protect both
classes" sounds rather ridiculous. The
governor is apparently afraid that the
two classes will hurt each other.

THE CRIME OF SUICIDE.
It is a sad commentary upon tho
bravery of a man when ho commits
suicide on account of financial diffi
culties. In olden times it was esteemed
a bravo thing to run upon a sword
when fortuno had done her worst. Some
ofltho catastrophes pictured by the an
cients left little, indeed, for tho over
whelmed mortal to do but to slit tho
thin-spun life. The vicissitudes of mod
cm life, however, aro not so terrible,
and tho loss of money is, in this coun
try, tho poorest possible excuso for sui
cide. If there is any place in tho world
whero reverses aro blessings in dis
guise it is tho United States. Some
times a man is up and down half a
dozen times. Sometimes his setbacks
aro tho best fortune that could overtako
him, setting him into new paths and
making a man of him.
Tho man who commits suicido over
money matters is a poor stick. Thero
is a yellow streak in him. Ho may have
posed as a bravo and honorable man,
but his taking off advertises him a cow
ard. Usually he is a man of fam
ily. H!s wifo and children cling to
him through any kind of adversity,
sweetening his lot and oncouraging him
to face tho worst that can come. Yet,
with a selfishness that is not found
among tho brutes, ho cringes in tho
face of disaster and skulks out of
life, leaving a weak woman and trem
bling children to fnco what ho has been
afraid to facel And, worse than that,
they must faco it with tho added shamo
of his cowardly desertion of them.
Every man, rich or poor, has respon
sibilities which ho must honor if he
is a man. His life is not his own. Ho
is a fighter on a fort, charged with
guarding a certain spot in order that
harm shall not como to others. It is
his duty to fight all comers, and, if
pressed backward, still to fight! While
ho is on guard, tho fort is safe; and
while his heart and brain aro on guard,
ho is safe, for nothing can conquor
them but his own treacherous and cow
ardly hand. If ho takes his own life,
he outrages naturo by making his hand
a traitor to his brainj and tho betrayal
of tho watchman opens tho fort to tho
destroyers. So tlio suicide's hand
strikes a mnrdorous blow ut his own
Tho duty imposed upon mon cannot
pormit them to act as cowards and
traitors without imposing upon society.
A suicido commits n crime against his
fellows when ho dodges a burden and
makes them shoulder it. Suicido is a
crime from nny point of viow a pecu
liarly despicablo and heinous outrago
of divino and human 'law. It should
bo held in utter detestation, and tho
law should sovcroly punish an attempt
at suicido. For, in such a caso death
does not square all, but piles up hor
rible debts that must be- paid by tho
living. -Washington Post,

MR. BRYAN'S POPULARITY.
Analyzed by a Paper Unablo ta Bolipvo
Ho Can Bo Elected.
Tho fundamental reason of the per
sistence of Mr. Bryan's popularity for
his uniquo position in. tho party is sim
ply a rollectiou of Jiis .popularity lies,
of courso, in tho circitmstaneu that tho
masses of tho people havo sot it down
as a fixed fact that ho was their cham
pion from the beginning, against, the
forces of plutocracy. In tho fnco of a
simple, clear conviction of this kind,
matters of dotnil count for very little.
When his terrible indictments of "tho
money power" nnd his dire portrayals
of the inevitable horrors of tho gold
standard wore falsified by events, there
was little or no falling off in tho en
thusiasm of his adherents. In'thc courso
of time, indeed, an impression disas
trous to his prestige might have been
made by the long period of prosperity
which Camo to tho country after his de
feats, had it not been for two circum
stances tho revelation of tho corrup
tion and recklessness that formed part
of that dobaueh of prosperity, and the
adoption by President icoosevcit oi ho
largo part of Mr. Bryan's program.
Either of these things would havo gone
a great way to sustain tho reputation
of tho Xobraskan and give him a re
newed hold on his following; tho two to
gether sufficed to place him a year or
two ago, not only upon as good a foot
ing as ever with those who had been his
admirers, but on a distinctly bettor
footing than ever with the more con
servativo elements of tho community.
Tho Dogs of St. Bernard
Again has one of tho glorious dogs
of tho St. Bernard vindicated tho Intel
ligence that place that animal at the
ton of all bruto creation.
Ono hundred years ago thero was a
great woolly dog attached to tho lios
prico upon tho crest of tho mountains
separating Switzerland from Italy that
immortalized tho namo of Barry by res
cuing travelers lost in the snows of tho
road over the pass of St. Bernard. I his
suggested tojho good monks to teach
the intelligent animals to seeks travel
ers lost in tho mountains. Since that
timo the dogs havo been bred with that
object in view and tho strain of the
original "Barry of tho Great St. Ber
nard," as ho is known in dog biograph
ical dictionaries "Who's Who in Dog.
land" hag been preserved.
Only a few days ago a lineal descend
ant of tho famous Barry, engaged in a
quest of possible rescue, saved three
Italians who would ,havo perished.
A strange thing about tho St, Ber
nard dog is that ho docs not thrive in
our climate. Experts, like William C.
Boick, have found these dogs oxtrcmoly
difficult to raise. Thoy succumb to
pneumonia and many other ills brought
on by cold weather. Originally com
ing from a placo very near tho eternal
snow-lino,, ono would supppso them to
bo proof against any amount of cold;
but polnr bears that aro pampered with
homes in our zoological gardens gener
ally dio of lung troubles. Esquimos
brought to Groton, Conn., by theTyson
party died if they remained. Dogs from
Greenland do not survive our winters,
as a rule. Julius Chambers in tho
Physicians havo at last bponod the
eyes of tho public to tho dangers of tho
dust with which tho air of' our cities is
laden." Thoy havo mado experiments
and observations which provo beyond
the shadow of a doubt that dust is res
ponsible for much of our ill health.
Tho lungs of tho country maiden aro
pink and pure; thoso of tho shopgirl
aro generally clogged with dust. When
tho sharp dust particle sentor tho lungs
thoy tnak'o incisions which qtinblo mi
crobes to obtain a footing.
AVo shall never bo ablo to abolish
dust, but we can lessen tho nuisanco by
adopting moro sanitary methods in tho
cleaning of our streets and houses. Too
often tho plnn followed is simply to
movo tho dust from tho ground or floor,
into tho atmosphere.
By sprinkling our streets with wator,
and our floors with tea leaves, wo' do
much to prevent this unhoalthful state
of nffairs. London Answers.
