American indnstrj Is not a pnny infant tiiat must he ted on government milk to keep up its vitality, but a strong, vigorous en tity that can hold its own against the world. There is nothing in the new Democratic tariff lull to nanaal alarm, but much to encourage the I American consumer who bus been i paying tribute to specially favored j interests Congressman Ilensley would place a strong check on the insidi ous influencing of national legis lators and judges by corporations seeking favors in the way of iegis ktion or otherwise. On the l!2d ult. lie introduced a bill, which was referred to the Committee ou Jndioiary, prohibiting the giving or receiving of gifts, employment or other compensation, with heavy penalties for both the giver and the receiver. Iu the case of Sen ators and Representatives, a viola tion of the proposed law would he deemed guilt of a high misdemean or, on conviction of which the vio lator would be heavily fined aud barred from holding any office of honor or trust under the Federal government. The penalty of cor porations or their agents for vio lation of the law is a heavy line for each offense and Imprisonment as well as fine in the case of agents. Mr. Ilensley also introduced an other bill ou the same day asking for an appropriation of $100,000 for the protection of the banks of 'he Mississippi river at aud south of Ste. Genevieve, Point Hest and Wittenberg from erosion, by re vetment or other permanent struc- turesa. The Semite and House Confer enoe ('omtnitlee's report on the tariff hill was agreed to by the House on Tuesday by a strict party vote of 254 to 103. The Senate has not yet acted on the report hut it was expected to have been called up in that body yesterday for ac tion, aud if there is uo hitch in the Senate it may be ready for the President's signature before the end of the week. The hill has the hearty indorsement of the Presi dent and he will lose no time in at taching his signature Nl it as soon as the Senate agrees to the report. There is some talk, however, that objections may be made iu the i h it Ofltaeal Farmim-i CENTS FOB SIX MONTHS - .

Through Superior ability, education, and ambition the Haitians of French descent exert a large Influence, and have given the country its two hest Presidents, Mover and (letfrard. Intelligent Haitians want their re public to be treated just as other countries are treated in the matter of diplomatic representation. They want the lame kind of American Ministers that other American re publics have, not because they pre fer white men for racial reasons, but becaueo they object to being Mingled out for racial discrimination. in sending Mr. Smith to l'ort-an-l'rince President Wilson shows that he understands the negro nature.

Two years ago in September Mrs Cora Wilson Stewart, superintend ent of schools iu Rowan county Kentnoay, conceived the idea of "moonlight scIiooIb." These were not to supplement the education of the younger generation. Her idea was to reach the tremendous illit erate population among the adults of the mountain counties. DO carried out hor plans. It was like a crusade of the Tweutiett against the Seventeenth Century The teachers gave their time to the cause without pay. Out of the little cabins, the moun tain stores, even the mountain I ciiiirches, came a stream of "learn ing-hungry" greybeards and women grown old in the hills. Three moun tain preachers learned during the first year of the "moonlight schools" to read their own Bibles. I lie e tree Is of Ihe movement have been furreaching. The other moun tain counties have felt the thrill of the world civilization that has been beating for generations against the Kentucky hills. As an example of what may be done in wiping out Illiteracy, the I'nited States Hureati of Kducatlon has prepared a bulletin giving a brief account of the work of the "moonlight schools." The results and the manner iu which theso re sults were achieved are worth thoughtful consideration from every cltiien of the United States who is a foe to illiteracy -Republic. Proof of Bird's Age. While life periods for birds have been variously stated at from two years for a wren to one hundred for the eagle and crow, such figures have lacked authority. Prof. L.
