''4' vT if 1 1 1 1 It's really surprising how much Hap piness or misery lies in the circle at «. wedding ring. Following in the footsteps of an in dolent man is about the most expen sive traveling imaginable. Too many men in this country vot« as they pray—and they never pray un less it is to ask a personal favor. The man who built the city hall at Denver is now selling cigars and to bacco at a stand in the corridor of the building. Count Bonl de Castellane refers to rtch Americans as "pig merchants, whose highest ambition should be to supply French aristocrats with money." The -cotton crop of this country Amounted to only 5,000,000 pounds in 1793, last year it -was about 5,500,000, ••8 pounds, representing three-fourths of the entire crop of the world and val ued at 9350:000,000. It filled 9,600,000 bales, and the loss by waste incidental to the process of taking samples was set less than 17,000,000. Devotees of golf are fond of refer ring to It as "the ancient and royal «ame." It is probably more royal and certainly far mare ancient- than most them haye any idea of. At all -events a pictured tablet was recently unearthed at Carchemishi the old capi tal of the Hittites, whereon are depict ed men and women engaged in a pas time, "which, if not exactly golf as played at'.present, is something extra ordinarily like .it. iEMstinguished Greek consuls from our western cities, as well as hundreds of Greeks in eastern seaports, have gathered the past two weeks to do honor to'the Navarchos Miaulis, the first Greek, warship to visit American waters. Not only "when Greek meets Greek" has the occasion bpen nota ble, but because Greece has taken this opportunity to express to the world her appreciation of the long and un broken friendliness of the United States. A terrible scene was witnessed In a menagerie at a village near Privas, France. A -butcher made a wager that he would enter a cage in which three lions were enclosed, drink a bottle of champagne, and play a game of cards with the tamer. All went well until the butcher was about to leave, when he foolishly thrust a glass of cham pagne under a lion's nose. The beast leaped furiously at the man and man gled him terribly before he could be released. In the Belleville quarter of Paris a man named Valles recently died whose career was unique. He was a proprie tor .of lodging houses, but made it an Invariable rule never to press a tenant or sell one up for rent. He has been known :to give a tenant who was un able to pay his rent money to cover the expense of removal, and in bis will he ordered that every tenant was to be allowed a rebate of a term's rent. His tenants contributed towards a huge wr-eath for his grave. 8o accustomed have Americans be come to think of the United bcates as a new country that the statement of Mr. Albion W. Tourgee that "we are one of the oldest of existing civilized nations," seems to require an explana tion. Since the foundation of the gov ernment, almost llj^ years ago, there has been no break in our Presidental cuecesson. During that period, accord ing to Judge Tourgee, the form of gov ernment in France has changed ten times. "Germany," he adds, "is but thirty years old. Austria, as a nation, Is the outcome of the Hungarian re bellion. Italy is a still later product of popular evolution." A capacity tor -taking pains in busi ness plans amd products is more and more a osmdMon of success. Aus tralian butter-packing may serve as an example. Shipments are secured •gainst deterioration by placing the butter in boxes made of plates of window glass, the edges being closed by applying gummed paper. The boxes an covered with layers of plaster of Paris, -sad then wrapped in. specially prepared waterproof packing paper. Such methods help fto raise the aver age of attention to .details. The re luctance of human Mings to eat un appetizing things increases. It pays •to make food offered for sale attractive to form as well as substance. The high standard Is money In the pocket •of the dealer and health for the con sumer. The converse is true. This country has lost a onee-promising .trade in exporting cheese. Those who (rained the trade-know how they did 'ft, but they should be too much ashamed of themselves to tell the rorld hew It was done.

The government is satisfied that un less the pewers modify the conditions which the ministers at Pekln are ap parently anxious to Impose, the nego tiations will come to nothing and there will be grave danger of a renewal ot hostilities involving the whole of China and threatening the peace of the world. The details of the appeal have not been disclosed, hut they are understood to be of such a character that the powers will he obliged to make known Without Qualification their intentions as to China's future. It is believed here that1 In this action the government Will have the hearty support of Russia and France, and perhaps Japan. Some responses 'are already at hand, and it is stated that generally our advances have been well received, and the state department ex presses satisfaction with the progress so far achieved. Details of the radical action of the government cannot be obtained, but enough is known to jus tify the assertion that the United States has asked the powers to put aside their individual desires and en deavor to make an agreement to serve as a basis for direct negotiation with the Chinese government which will be for the Good of All Concerned!. .The government was reluctantly forced to take this step. The president and his advisers felt, however, thtJt the foreign representatives at Pekin have succeeded aftgr many weeks of con ference In putting the difficulties be tween China and the powers In an even mere hopeless tangle than before. To bring order out of tnis condition of diplomatic chaos is the earnest desire of the government. Whether any good results come the government has no means of knowing, but it feels that its duty to itself and its regard for the peace of tl\e world justified it in abandoning the hope or bringing about a settlement through the ministers at Pekin and trusting to the sense of justice among the European nations and Japan to remove the menace to their owr. welfare now confronting them.
