SCOTT. - p.diUtr and I WANT A DOLLAR. "I want a dollar that I cun spend In any part of the world," eaid Mr. OoldbuK. He is now anxious to take aome of the government'* certificates of Indebtedneaa—the despised green back. We have ulwaya contended that money taaued by. the government la good enough und now that Mr. Goldbug has come around to that be lief we aee no reason why a currency might not be Issued by the govern ment based on gold und silver. That Is the money of the people and there comes times when even the Wall street speculators and the millionaire trust magnates will take such money and say It Is good medicine. It Is the proper remedy now as It was the rem edy In 1886. The credit of the gov ernment is all that Is necessary to make currency absolutely safe and good, but It has taken about ten years to prove that the advocates of free ooinage of silver and the Issuance of money by the government Is the only safeguard against money stringency. The people have absolute confidence in the government und it alone can Issue the necessary currency without creating distrust. Mr. Ooldbug Is now shouting: "I want a dollar that I can spend at home." With all the seriousness attached to the financial situation, It Is not devoid of the amusing and ridiculous. The Spokesman-Review and many other gold bug papers and speculat ors who. in 1888 could see no money worth having aaide from gold, are now whooping It up for clearing house certificates, certificates of In dsbtedness and all kinds of "rag* money. The free silver advocates can stand aside and enjoy the ucta of these acrobats. President Roosevelt has Invited the governors of all the states to as semble at the White House In May to discus* means of conserving our natural resources. Such a meeting must result In much good to the nu tloa. But It should also Include the discussion of uniform divorce laws, pure food laws and railway leglala tlon. A uniformity of legislation covering theae subjects would he most advantageous to the people. Praise Kor American Women. lie happy marriage question Is agl tatiog the English public, and compart* non has been made between English and American women ns metes for continental Europeans. Recently the Loadou Chronicle cited the views of s Frenchwoman who asserts that the American woman is the more success ful In foreign alliances. One of the reasons given Is that "she makes her husband proud of his wife." This observer says that the English woman remains aggressively English wherever she Is placed. Ntrangc to any, the unions of Englishmen with German womvu are said to turn out happily. But hi cosmopolitan circles a wife must play mauy parts, that of companion to her husluind as well as housekeeper ami mother, and In the role of companion the American wife surpasses the English. According to Consul General Michael Of Calcutta. England U now giving "benighted" hulls the lowest letter and parcels postage rate of any coun try In the world.

According to au exchange. «>*p has b**o known to the world for 8,000 year*, and yet some uieu regard It an fcutovatioo too recent to he trifled with. Washington ns a prohibition city would enable statesmen to give ban goats without any fear of embarrass ing cocktail incidents. M When automobile owner* look at their budgets for repair* they wondet why they sr* tbe objects of envy In stead of pity. What a wild hurroo Is tusde over the proposition to restore the obsolete cue tom of study In ooUcges! That story about a "war on pomps dour*" In Pittsburg turned out to bs Today's news today If you road the Evening Praia. w-**~g to "Keep Up Steam." T > medical specialists, Sir Orteh ton ... owne of I»ndou and Dr. Woods Hutchluson, an English trained physi cian now settled In this country, have recently delivered views on the "per fect diet" which virtually amount to a condemnation of all food fads. Dr. Crlchton-Browne says that food fads are In the nature of a deprivation, while Dr. Hutchinson Insists that In telligent selection of the food which the Individual system demands is the only safeguard. The latter declares that meat enters are the dominant und conquering strain among men. The evil of eating too much Is soon apparent nml can lie corrected, while the effects of eating too little are slow *f development Hnd may bring about Ilia not connected with the digestive organs. We look upon food as the fuel of the human engine, and the components of every mesl should tie selected with n view to the work to be ilone. The theories of Mr. Fletcher with regard to slow and iierfect mas tication are not new, for there is scarcely s mother In the land who Is not saying daily to her children and perhaps to some adults nrotind her ta ble that food should lie chewed fine and not liolted. Recently Mr. Fletcher has added another article to bis creed, which la that the human being needa no brvnkfnst. He saya that a night's rest gives the Isxly all the nourish ment uecessary and that the breakfast appetite la only a habit. A radical swing, this, from the every day notion that n pel son who comes to the break fast table without an appetite ueeds an Interview with the medicine mau In sleep a change of tissues takes place In the ls»dy, and food must fol low In order to restore harmony. Many doctora Insist that a morning appetite must be had even If It takes a mile walk to bring It around. Tbe question Is uot ns to bow one feels on a break fast or tbe going without, but the sit uation two or three hours later, after the steam stored up In sleep bus lieen worked out. German nnd French workmen eat light breakfasts, but they take food at II o'clock to make up for It. The general experience of the world sustulus those doctors who teach that mau must feed himself with the same care aud liberality which be be stows upon his work animals, and that Is according to the tasks on band. In tbe long run the npi>etlte which has not Iteeu tampered with la the safest guide as to what It wants and when It wants It. The Sly Japs. It turns out that tbe lay public aud war experts ns well were wide of the mark In supposing that the finish fight between the Russian aud Japanese fleets had added materially to tbe world's Information as to armored •hips and modern gun Are. The Japs were victor* and barely gave their foe time to see just how they did It. And they themselves "ain't saytn' uuffln." They have made no statement, aud no word has leaked out from Japanese naval headquarters as to what feature or features of their armament gave them the superiority. There were half a dozen questions, more or less, which experts wished might lie decided In actual battle with res|>ect to the efficiency of certain kinds of shells, of powder, of armor, the ranges which regulate efficiency, and so on.. The Ja|>s sank the Russian ships, nnd they raised them, but they have never allowed outsiders to gain tbe slightest Information from the tell tale wrecks. This Is clearly a Japa nese right, but It la well to remember that |>eople who know the Japanese character say this secretlveness Is a national trait and extends to every Held of activity. Andrew Carnegie has given away shout 8t2fi.OOU.UOO In the pest thirty years. But he has built no churches, missions, Youug Men's Christian asso ciations. soup kitchens or hospitals. Outside of a large fuud for the relief of Injured or needy steel workers and s long private pension list, he has giv en nothing to the sick or the poor. "Nothing for the submerged tenth" has been the motto of this Scottish stoic. The shooting of a hunter for a deer In the Adirondack! and the reported decrease of hunter* In tbe Maine woods have, or course, no relation to cause aud effect.

CAMP ON HOTEL ROOF. Philadelphia Hcstslry 8uppliss Tents For Guests Who Want Thom. Anybody wli<> yearns to "sleep under the stars," who finds a big t*droom too confining, can camp out on tbe roof of the -Ibdlevue-Hlriitford hotel, Philadelphia, now, nay* a Philadelphia special to the New York World. A Judge arrived at the Bellevue Stratford from the Adirondncks recent ly. Next day he complained thnt the street noises kept him awake und that anyhow a room wu too pent up for a man who had been sleeping out of doors. So the manager pitched a tent on the roof, which Is incased in glass | The judge has lieen sleeping like a top. twenty stories up, 310 feet above tbe street. Boon there will be a grove of little pine nnd spruce trees on tbe roof In which will stand twenty tents, each one with a |sirtable bathtub and a telephone Servants, costumed as guides, probably will be In attendance, but the campers must eat their venison and bear steuks In the hotel dining rooms. If the camp's ntmospherc grows too close the glass dome can be opened. Then the wind will whistle through the tree*. The camp will be maintained all winter probably. FRESH FISH AT SEA. Steamship Amsrika Hss a Trout Pool For Epicures. On a recent voyage of the steamship Amerika there was a novelty for the passengers. There were four tanks stocked with trout and carp on the deck, and the fish swam around until they fascinated aome passenger, who told the steward which one he wanted, and then It was caught and cooked for him. The fish were In charge of Ernest Marquandt. Dr. George L. Erlweln, an aquarlat of Hamburg, had the task of keeping the fish healthy, and all that were not eateu made the trip In good condition. The steward said that about BOO trout nnd 150 carp were sold on the voyage. The tanka, big zinc affairs, filled with fresh water, are housed away up on the top of the ship, near the base or the smokestacks. The water Is sup plied with fresh oxygen by pumping It Into the tops of little towers, where through punctures tho fresh air comes In touch with It, and thus the trout are kept alive and jumping.
