THE AMERICAN BOY-HOW HE EEAVES OTHERS BEHIND IN President Roosevelt's statement, that conservatism is tho one and main lacking quality in our young men of today, is being widely commented up on and emphatically denied by College professors and clergyman. Every loving mother and doting fatb itss read tit is statement akin to re sentment. Are boys of today of ; the bold, pushing forward type, which our English cousins lieve of the Yankee yonthî wont to be British », both at home and in the Colonial possessions believe the American youth is a sort of a dare devil "don't care'' scheming and money making collec tion of anatomy. While President Roos Tveltholds the sceptre of the reigu • ing mind,"and undoubtedly is in a po sition to correctly and systematically appreciate the success ,and fortunes young men, he is not direct ly in touch with the seven or more million inhabitants of the United States between the ages of 17 and 28 who will in a few years be the fath ers of the next generation. Our aver age youth is a model conservative, but at the same time dashing and brilliant, Our boys stand ond to none in the daily race for existence and leads by several cents per capital those of the thrifty Dutch, the hard working Germans and the sturdy sons of King Edward Pitt. Side by side with any other nationality statistics bear out the fact that they leave others far behind in life's race. Whethor merchant of God bless him. a laborer, mechanic, in the professional line, true manliness and accessive indepeud two of the fastest and surest breeders of success. The few Ameri partakers of the excel lent preparatory courses at Belfast . Harrow Brussels or South Jough, in the southern part of France are de cisively demonstrating that America's pride in her growing youth is justly the basic principal upon which the successful future of our country de pends. You all know him, the jovial, ence who mischievous, bright eyed youngster, who in lila most prunk ing hours gladdens the mothers heart and lessens the effects of the day's toil upon the father. Not a home, should be with out him. Here is to our American Boy, and may he always he with Britishers have we and Germans a plenty, but the best of them all is the Yankee youngster. WORLD'S FAIR VISITORS. coming to hand from St. Louis to the effect that the far attending the great Ominous reports visitors, Louisiana Purchase Exposition have beeu to put it plainly, more fleeced by their entertainers. 1 The Hotel keepers of course are independ ent of ly control in the coudnct of their business, and the managers of the Exposition them can exercise no authority the charges they are pleased to impose. But it was fairly presumable from the announcement made by the Exposition people that some understanding had at least been arrived at by which assurance could be given that hotel charges would be moderate and reasonable. It is now declared by St. Louis correspondents that these charges an* neither moder ate or reasonable, but the contrary extorrionate beyond àll precedent. If these accounts of inflated high substantiated it will be very prices unfortunate for the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Americans are generous and even extravagant Lut they will not as a general rule go where they are likely to be imposed upon. It is to be taken in account that the costs of living are high this year and visitors to St. Louis will expect to he charged more than they were charged for example in Chicago in 1898. Since the Chicago exposition these costs havo advanced possibly 10 per cent and a corresponding advance in hotel rates at St. Louis, would in all probability meet with jectlcwsa It appears however that the honMace fraternity of the Mound City has determined to exploit the oppor tunity for making a barrel of money during the Exposition. It will be found that a very grave mistake lias l>eeu made. The people of sincerely interested i serious ob entire country promoting the success of the Exposi tion to the fullest extent, but if they are to be met at St. Louis by what amounts to a hostile demand their vlu> purses thousands upon thousands, have planned a visit to the fair will stay away.
