Charles Scarbor of Waterloo, lowa, has passed the flrty year murk and has never cast a ballot at any election. Mr. Bcarber says after seeing the tricks of the politicians he came to the Conclusion that the political game was too deep for him and he decided to leave U alone entirely. This man would doubtless resent being called an anarchist. Ho has no anarchistic beliefs or tendencies. But suppose every cllir.em of the republic should follow his ex am; ile? Eliminate the suffrage and there is nothing left but anarchy rampant. In the last analysis in this country the politicians go back to the people for their power. This power is delegated at the ballot box. Break the connection between the power house and the machinery of government and you have neither power nor privilege. Mr. Pcarber needs to leim that suffrage is more than a right, a personal perogatlve. It 1? a dutjr. The tricks and schemes of politicians can not absolve a citizen from his duty. The more tricks and schemes the more need for re course to the ballot. JOE AND HIS COMRADES. Little Joe sold newspapers on a West Side route in Chicago. Aged 14, but undersized, agile, cheery, and honest, he successfully supported a mother and little sister. "Naw. I don't want a job as messenger boy," said Joe one day, when asked if he didn't want this "steady position." "Naw," quoth Joe, "I earn nearly as much money on my paper route and almost as much doing chores on both sides «f the street. 1 can't afford to he such a gent as a messenger boy. I've a family to look after and must work for a living." His family never went hungry. One day Joe shivere.l with cold and at the same time burned with fiver. He did not have time to take care of himself. He was too busy looking after his family. Then Joe was in bed and the doctor came. After a long waiting of two weeks Joe died, died as he had lived—died with a hero's smile on his face. What became of his newspaper route meantime? Do you suppose loyalty and comradeship belong only to men and Women? Joe's comrades, loyal little street Arabs, kept tip the route and gave the money to his mother. He would have been anathema mara natha who would have kept a cent of "Joe's money." And when Joe died these Liliputians said, "We'll bury him proper." It was a hard pull. Collins and hearses and carriages are expensive. But Joe's comrades would have turned highwaymen, if necessary, for the money. They got the funds, these expert financiers, though it is not just clear how they got it. And "Joe's coffin was a daisy" and there was enough money to put the coffin and the mother and the little sister on the train for a Wis consin town, where Joe's mother had "folks." They didn't cry when they went to the depot, these ragamuffin mourners. Lips trembled and tears glistened until furtively wiped away. The luxury of crying belonged to "swells." Touching story? Yes, but more than that. Heroism is not alone ol the battlefield and tender hearts do not belong exclusively to philanthropists. More. Vaunt your common schools. They are worthy. Urge early train ing. It makes character. But, over and beyond schooling and early training and a fair chance in life is 60111 stuff!

WILL DO IT BACKWARDS. French System of Teaching to Be Reversed. PARIS, Nov. 14. —The minister of public instruction has decided to re versethe method of teaching mod ern languages in all French schools. Heretofore the students learned the grammar and how to write the lan guage, and finally to speak it. Hero after Just the opposite will be done. The principles of this method of teaching, which have been com menced with the new classes this term, are to surround the pupils with an entirely British or German atmosphere, and to converse only to them in the language which Is being taught. Naturally, at first, the pupils will not understand a great deal; but they will soon form • vocabulary. Children are, first of all. taught the names of the ob jects which ihey chiefly use, and so It will be with tbe pupils. The stu dent will thus be, first, taught to talk, next to read, and, flnnliy, to writo a language. GEORGE PUTNAM. Manager. HE HAS NEVER VOTED. WILL THE FRENCH PEOPLE GO BACK ON ZOLAISM? Pierre Lote, the French roman cist. is the man who won the elec tion to membership with the Forty Immortals over the late Emile Zola. Zola was handicapped by reason of his championship of the poor and downtrodden, while many of tbe academicians were defenders of the monarchy or sympathized with it, while the leading writers in the academy were entirely out of sym pathy with Zola's methods. Zola had influential friends, chief among them being Hugo, and when the day for voting on the two names came literary x Paris was in a tur moil.

QUEEN OP VIENNA MUSIC HALLS IS YOUNG, BUT HOLDS THE RECORD FOR MAKING HEARTS OF THE GILDED YOUTH GO PIT-A-PAT—SHE IS ABLE TO BUY GOOD CLOTHEB AND IS QUALIFIED TO WEAR THEM TO BEST ADVANTAGE. VIENNA, Nov. 14.—1n this gay capital, famed for its women of regal talents and beauty, the music hall star is the most worshiped of women, and her prestige is as the ratio of her conquests among the gallants of the "Haut Monde."

She is wealthy and live» in princely style, and can afford to be as tickle as she pleases. When some young of ficer of noble family strolls out into the woods and shoots himself, or some brilliant financier goes to the wall, there is likely to be a hub bub of gossip as to whether it was Mile. Gerard or some other music hall divinity of whom he was too tond. Light-Weight Champion to Defend Title.

PARIS, Nov. 14 —Parla has an other sensation ami as it partakes of a bit of a scandal Paris is happy. The police are looking for Canon Rosenberg, a priest of Tours cathe dral, who is accused of various strange transactions by which his dupes were parted from large sums of money. Rosenberg was the son of con verted Jews and was born in 1861. When a boy he entered the semi nary at Tours and developed into an unusually good student. He was made a priest and later canon of the cathedral. He founded an orphanage which he placed under the charge of his sister. This orphanage, together With several industrial enterprises ami wild-eat companies, recently failed. The orphanage, it is said, contained a large number of chil dren who were not orphans at all. but who had parents who did not welcome them. But Rosenberg's greatest money rnaking venture seems to have been his divorce mill. One of the women who was duped by Rosenberg is a good example of all. Mme. Civet, a well-known Paris woman, was di vorced from her husband by the civil authorities. She is a devout Catholic, however, and wanted the religious marriage annulled as well. She went to Canon Rosenberg and he secured for her the divorce which purported to come from Home. For his services Mme. Civet paid Rosenberg $14,000. She was only one of a host of women who were given divorces at all prices, the charge depending on the depth of the customer's pockertbook. When Mme. Civet discovered that her divorce was fraudulent she went to the authorities and thus the whole scheme was divulged. But Rosenberg had disappeared. It was discovered that he bad at least a half dozen residences in Paris, different places for different, classes of clients. When he left Paris he went to Pontoise and there all trace of him was lost. He was accom panied from Paris by two attractive young women, one English and the other French. "They were found in the house at Pontoise. but said that they were in entire ignorance of the whereabouts of Rosenberg. They refused to tell who they were or what their relations with the missisng canon were. BENEFIT. In Aid of Actres Mabel Bouton.

C, Nov. 14.— The state railroad commission to day began an investigation of the complaints made against the South ern Railway by Dae cotton dealers of Charleston.
