It got its envelopes and had them printed privately to its own taste, and now its Citizens' Trade Associa tion is on tho war path, and its Con gmfciuan Las been notified to make trouble. Harvard University, as loca ted by the Foatoflico printer, is at "Station l Boston." It is trno the settlement of tho West and Northwest lias been largely by immigrants from foreign countries, but these immigrants have been of the best kind. The class of immigrants who find it to their taste to drift into the slums of the large cities have never ome west of Chicago in large num bere, bays the Sioux City (Iowa) Jonr nal. The Germans, French, Dutch English, Scotch, Scandinavians and Irish, who have gone upon farms of the West to make homes for them selves, or have built up the small towns and flourishing young cities of the West, have been intelligent and well educated, and they have come to tho United States with fixed purposes and sensible plans. The fact that the undesirable immigrants are tilling up the cities of the East and driving Americana westward is sufficient cause for alarm in the East. It is this fact that gives to the movement for greater restrictions on immigration so much force. It is not desirable that we ehould receive fewer immigrants, but H is desirable that those immigrants should be of a better class. The reasons for the interest with which the plans for a Pacific cable are watched is England are not altogether political or strategical, Bays the New Tork Post. The possible diversion of cabla traffic from an old submarine system to a new is indicated in some figuies given in London at the last meeting of the "Eastern Extension" Company, one of the greatest of the enterprises to which Sir John Fender gave his thought. The gross revenue is about $3,000,000 a year ; the work ing expenses run only about $900,000 a renr. Discussing the prospects of a Pacific cable uompetition, the Marquis of Tweedale said that the loss of the Eantern Extention business might range from $800,000 to $1,250,000 a year. He hardly expected such ad verso conditions, however, and mean time the uew rival cables bad not been laid. As to the possibilities of an augmented cable traffic at the anti podes and with China and Japan, it 'appeared that an increase of $250,000 in the last half-year had sprung almost entirely from the activity in "Wes tralian" gold mining. As regards the etability of tho English submarine cable enterprises, it may bo noted that tho Eaetern Extention property is valued at a premium of $10,000,000 on its capital value, and the allied luihtcrh Telegraphs at about $20,000, CO!' more ever the capital value. rnuM thk wiNTrn uum ii low.

AN ARMY POST STORY, Tt'.-rtub tt DT CLAKENCE L. CriRCS. ILSON joiued tho batter7 at Fort Canbj- a little while before the Territory of Wash ington became a Stala. Ho had enlisted at Seattle as a recruit, and was therefore i i ciassou as a "prairie chicken," as solJiers then were who "took on" anywhere west of the Mississippi. We all had a good many rensons for believing, however. that Wilson was not quito so much of a recruit as his Souttlo enlistment record showed on its face. None of us could remember having soldiered with him anywhere, and his face was unfamiliar to all. Nevertheless, from tho day he arrived at Canby in charge of the Se attle batch of recruits, of which, ac cording to the list ho handed to tho officer of the day, he wis one, he car ried himself too much like a soldier to fool thoso of us who had been in the outnt a long time. Old Sergeant Fisher took the re emits out to tho parade ground, the morning after their arrival, to begin to lick them into Ehape in the awkward squad. Wilson was among them. He tried to assume the recruit's clumsi ness, but we could see that the job was a little too much for him. He was too naturally graceful aman in his carriage for that, and his shoulders were too square. At the command of execution he forgot himself every time, and stepped out with the left foot. A re cruit never does that. It takes at least six months to teach a recruit that he is possessed of a left foot. Old Fisher gave "To tho rear, march!" suddenly, and it caught Wilson napping. Alone of the squad, ho whirled on the ball of his left foot and took a step rearward, while the rest of the squad ignorantly ploughed on. It was a bad giveaway, and Wilson s dark, handsome face flushed. Old Fisher's eye was sharp, if he had been canteen sergeant for six years. "Haiti he commanded the squad oi recruits, and in their own timo, one bv one, they halted. "Wilson, fallout." Wilson fell out, and for a time stood by watching old Fisher drill the rookies in the facings. After awhile the sergeant, having brought the squad to a rest, walked over to Wilson, looked him over for a minute with a sort of half smile, and said : "What's the use?" "None," said Wilson, probably see ing that the game was up so far as old Fisher was oonoarned. All the same, riot to make the offi cers suspicions, the drill sergeant took Wilson out with the awkward squad eery day for a time. It was a fine thing to see Wilson handle Lis rifle when the guns were dished out to the rookies for the first timn. A young lieutenant,fresh from West Point.hap penod to drop into the day room, and ho stopped for a while to watch the new men trying to get through the manual. His eye naturally drifted to Wilson, who would have attracted at tention in tne miaaje rank of a regi ment, for he certainly was a fine looking chap. Wilson was trying to handle his gun as if he had never seen ono before. We oouldn't help but grin jnckassically as we stood around, although we were careful not to let the little West Point shavetail see as do it, for we all liked Wilson and didn't want to see him get into any trouble. Wilson tried so hard to make it appear that ho didn't even know what a rifle was made for that he dropped it while the squad was stand ing at a rifle parade rest. It made a terrific clatter, aud the little lioutea ant's eyes snapped. "Gawk!" he muttered, while Wil son, red and nervous, reached out and picked up the gun. "Attention!" shouted the drill ser Koant. Wilson alone of the batch was liVo a ramrod befuro tbt frW-n of llm ' Command .In away in tli dur room. I "Kijrht nhonl !er luuim!" WiIhou'i! Kuu ramo t bin tUmM, r with a nap, ! tlnj U.rtu movement perfect, whilo llm tli r follows of lh .pvl wrre uluKiihlj coming to a port, a j-nwrnt, a eurry, everything but a riht boul der. "Fix bay o nets !" WiIh .u'h was fixed with the rapidity and rreeision of uii 'xi rt. Well," nail tho liltla lieutenant under hn breath, a ho turned aay with a kind of pnzzlod twinklo in hit f jo. Wilson was rut to duly tho next day, and caught commanding officer's orderly tlio lint timn Lo went mi guard. All of us a ho occupied bunks in tho old-timers' mpia 1 room Lad to con iat that Wilson oi iiuo a soldier ai we had ever seen. Noun of ns ever anked hiia what outfit ho had been in before ho camo to our layout as a recruit. Wilson was a very quiet mun, well educated wo used to rco him reading queer-looklug books in foreign languages, as ho lay on his bunk on rainy afternoons and wo didn't caro to bother him with questions. It was none of our busi ness, anyhow. A young whelu of a rookie whs watching Wilson duddyack biscartri lgo belt ono day, and, like the pup that he was, ho said so that the other follows in the room could hear him : "Oho, bnt han't Wiluon dono that a lot o' times boforo, I'd just like to know!" Ono of ns reached over, caught the cub by tho scruff of the neck and dropped him over the bannisters of tho double-decker quarters. Wilson said nothing, although thero was an odd tort of gleam in his black eyes. There were no allu-ious to his past after that, you can bet. Fort Canby is a beautiful, gloomy por.t. It is at the mouth of the Colum bia Fiver, under the shadow of tho mountain that forms the extremity of Capo Disappointment. Oh, but tho Pacific batters wildly, wildly at thoso black rock". lu the quarters wo could always hear the roar of tho sea. Tho sound used to break somo of us up a little, kin I of, at night, after tho lights went out. I don't know why. The sea is mournful, anyhow, I think. A hundred salmon lishermcn from As toria and 11 Waco got upsot and drowned on that wicked Columbia bar whilo wo wero there. Well, anyhow, Wilson used to spend nearly all of the time that ho wasn't on duty down by tho sea. no had a big dragon tattooed on his knotty left arm, and a barkentine in three colors on his breast. Besides, he knew a great deal about Japan and South America, as some of us found out without being inquisitivo, and we knew that ho had been to sea. When, how, or in what capacity, we had no idea. But he vas fond of the sight of the sea. Only once in a while did he join in the football game with the gang on tho parado ground. When ho did, he always kicked a goal. On pay days some of ns used to go across the trail from the post to 11 Waco, throo miles away and thoro were a lot of ugly looking black bears on that trail, too, 1 can tell you and well, we'd load up on Jawbones's barbarous Siwash whisky. Jawbones was the half breed Siwash who sold it. Wil son never went along with us. He didn't driuk. We kind o' liked him for that, too, for, with big heads aud sore stomachs, wo were all swearing off every pay day after our money was spent at Jawbones's. No, Wilson put in his off duty time tramping through the pine and spruce forests along the beach, with a stick iu his hand, always alone. One day the tide rushed in suddenly and caught him at the foot of tho eape. He had to climb the 000-foot rock, which was almost perpendidnlar. I wouldn't have tried it for a million, even to save myself from drowsing. He smiled a little when I told him so. He's been aloft on ships, you know. Well, this is tho finish. It has been a long time in coming, bat you had to understand what manner ot man Wil son was. One bright day tho sentry up at the lighthouso yelled down to the sergeant of the guard that an American man-of-war was coming over the bar. Can by is a saluting station, so that men-of-war aro always reported by tho guard. Wilson was walking number one post, in front of tho guard house, and he repeated the lighthouse sen try's call to the sergeant inside. When the old guard . was marched off, re lieved by the new one, Wilson went up to the lighthouse with one of ua to have a look through the glasss at the man-of-war. He grew a little palo as he made her out through the coast guard's binocular, but said nothing. She was ono of the old blaok ships of the old navy, and had dropped her mud hook off Astoria, ten miles across the bay. Hc-r steam launch, dancing on the rollers way oil in the distance, was heading our way as Wilson looked through tho glass. As tho launch be gan to come near Wilson went down to tho little dock alone. The officer of tho day and three men of the guard were on the dock, waiting to receive the naval officer in the launch, who carried the compliments of tho com manding officer of the ship to tho com manding ollicer of our post. The launch pulled up alongside tho Si 1 11 hock, nmi, as mo guaru camo to a prrff-nt, f.na-lookinr; yoiinir niv.il officer H'jel whorrt. ll'l Wis th bvin,r irtfo of Wils hi, only younger. All of tlMlows of tho gur-l n.die 1 tho roHbUnri lunUtitlj, but tln'y did uot o Wilson, who ha 1 hurriedly lo't tlilock when his rouuii-rpart with tluwor 1 and tho nlvcr an -hor on his fcuso collar stopped from tho limneh. Tho msj naval officer on 1 tho offi cer of t dy got iuti an ambulation and wf driven to tho cominaudin oflicer'l'iarteri. Mrs call mint ::i few iniitos. and wo were all marched into cWr.

Woia-1 scarcely sit doari and bo gun Umlly tho kitchen p.ilicc beforo we hu 1 a Ion 1 shot from tho Hour above We main a rush for tho stair to flu out what tho matter was. As wo smmbied up ths atnbitlanco carry ing t young naval oflijer, returning to th launch from his miMuiou, drew up oi iu front of tho quarters. Tho sea nicer had heard tho shot, an 1 was hoppg out of the aiubulanea to iu- TCNtVitO. W found Wilson sitting on the c lpf his bunk, in his fhirt sleovos, llishirt was soaked with blood, aud thei was a big hole in his right l-reL His riQa lay on tho floor be slddho bonk. Ho had t iken off his ritft shoe and pulled thotrigsfr with hi:roat too. Ho was very whito in thiface, but smiliDg. Well, ho said in a low voico, a wo stooped over to examino him, "yu fellows can lit around tho stovo anthavo something to talk about on raiy afternoons now. Bat it's all rigt-all right-" kst then the young naval officer pujied through tho crowd of ns arcind tho bunk. When ho canqht sipit of his brother's faco hi reeled, aii one of us had to catch him to pro via t him from falling. f'Jackl Oh, my God!" was all tho yng fellow with the silver anchor cold say. It was easy for uc fellows 6tinJius around to see how his heart wp aching under his blouse. "It's all right, Ed., all right-" Wo allsneuked away theu. Well, no, I ciu't say that any of us felt very hil arous just then for a fact. 1'ho little lieutenant of our battery wmt in. In a few minutes ho camo o;it, just almost carrying the young nnval officer, a man about twice us big as ho was. W'e all volunteered for tho bring party, and tho four young wind-pushers who trumpeted for tho batteries quarreled over which of them should blow "taps over the grave. Wed all spent many an afternoon cleaning our guns after firing volleys who had passed from our outfit over tho divide, but that certainly was the well, the breakmgeet-up funeral that Canby ever saw. Wilson's brother was there, in full dress. But the name that was printed by the post paiuter on Wilson's headstone was not Wil son, it was tne same name as that of the young naval officer. The cemetery at Canby is only a couple of hundred feet from tho roaring sea. In a few weeks two ladieB, one quite old and white haired, the other young, pretty, but sad looking, came to Can- by in mourning, lhey had "Wilson s body sont somewhere back to the States. It was ti long timo bsforo wo got at tho insido of tho story. Then wo found out that "Wilson" had gotten his commission at West Toint and had resigned a year after his graduation ou account of some difficulty. He had shipped in the navy as a bluejacket. After his first cruise ho had boon drafted to a ship on which his broth er, who had meanwhile graduated witu distinction at Annapolis, was sorving as a watch and division officer The humiliation of it had been too muoh for him, and "Wilson" had promptly doserted. Then we got him. He had probably been meditating uuioide for a long time, and tho fina sight of his brother s face in such an off-the-earth plaoe as Fort Canby wrought upon him as the working of a fate that seemed to be crushing. Thus the rifle ball. We did not talk of him around the stove at all. But his gnu was taken out of the rifle rack and stowed away out of sight. Washing ton Star. A Thought-Weighing Machine. The cerebrum is the organ of the will and it is known that in the exer oise of its function thero is an increased supply of blood to that part. Profos sor Mosso, an Italian physiologist, has invented a thought-weighing machine, consisting of delicate balances so con trived tnat tuey weign tne varying amount of blood in the brain. The activity of the brain is in direct pro portion to the amount of blood there in. According to a local newspaper report, tho uiaohine is so delicately constructed that it readily detects the difference in tho exertion required to read Greek above that necessary to read Latin. Every youngster is ready to bolieve in the machine. Medical Record. Tho Czar's Horses and Carriages. The Czar of Fiuosia has four sepa rate "services" of horses and carriages ; namely, the Russian, French, English aud gala sets. Each set compritcs at least fifty horses. Tho Russian set accompanies tho Emperor wherever ho goes, and at Gatchina it is usod, to gether with the English set. 14V to Mil 1 'III) ono im'ti, m'l pri iK hi Ileiuaikuble, "I Ulkl-.l J.Mt.T tinder oll ll III 11,' to annllii r.

"SHE DRESSES WELL." BUT HER CLOTHES OFTEN COVER A LIVING DEATH. (Qri (ft) Ttranty Is tht Shrine of Men's Worship, and Women Vie With K:ich Other to Make Tliruiaelveii Attractive. The remark, "She dresses elegantly," is a very common one iu vins age or wealth and progress. Women vie with each other In mak ing themselves at tractive, for men admire a stylishly dressed woman. tiood clothes add to the charms of the woman in per fect health, but are ill-befitting those who through ignor ance or care lessness have suffered the inroads of fe male diseases to stamp them as physical wrecks. It is unfortunate, but true, that some physi cians allow women to 6uiier needlessly, be- riisa man ca.n only work from theory, and at best only patch up, without removing the cause. Troof is abundant that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound re moves the cause, gives strength to th weakened organs, vigorous health to the system, and therefore beauty to the face and form. Mrs. Tinkhara, Lynn, Mass., gladly answers, free of charge all letters. Here is one of the results : " Three months ago, I wrote you a letter describing my troubles, which were inflammation of the womb and bladder. I had not seen a well day 6ince the birth of my second child, ltt years ago. I had spent hundreds of dollars for doctors and medicines. " Such pains as I endured. My back ached, my feet and limbs were swollen, and it was almost impossible for me to stand ; I could not walk any distance. I received your answer to my letter, and followed closely all your advice, and I have been using Lydia E. Pink ham's Compound for three months. Now I can work all day without pain. I have recommended the Compound to many of my friends, and gladly recom mend it to all women in any way afflicted with female troubles." LydU.
