Boston lias for several months been pro ceeding ttpon the plan of arresting every man whose breath gmelled of li'juor on the charge of being drunk. Lowell, which Is a no license city, has a heavier record of drunks for the same peri d, in proportion to population, than that of Boston. This Is simply a statement of facts. The read er can draw his own conclusion. Stephen B. Jioath, a wealthy citizen of Chicago, has divided a large portiorl of his fortune amounting to nearly a million dol lars among relatives while yet alive, in or der to prevent litigation after death, and also to see to what use the recipients would put the money. If all wealthy men could only be persuaded to do the same how happy some people would be. This war game in and around Portland may be, and perhaps Is, very helpful and instructive to the army, for which it is de signed, but to the average reader the lengthy stories in the metropolitan press are about as interesting as a last year' almanac. General Chaffee, who is over seeing the minilo warfare, says it is test and practice of material more than anything else," and as such it must prove of great benefit to those participating. The pardon cranks are now seeking to secure the release of Marvin A, ileOlure, who was sentenced three years ago to nerve a sentence of seven years in the House of Correction for his connection with the Merahants National bank defal cations at Kutland. It is such ill-timed moves as this that tend to increase the lynch-law sentiment In Vermont as well as other states.

E. Burr's S Odor of I l(Htfr. It Is a remarkable fact tlittt although there are nearly or quite 100,000 flow ering plants known the relative num ber having odor is wonderfully small, not more than 10 per cent, in fact. In connection with this it is noteworthy that because one species of flower is endowed with sweet odor it does not necessarily follow that all or nearly all or even a fair proportion of the other species of the same family will be as favorably endowed. An illustra tion of this is found in the. familiar mignonette. There are some fifty spe cies of this genus known, and of them all, but one has any fragrance. Nor Is it certain that the most insignificant looking flower has the greatest fra grance or the most gorgeously colored likely to be without odor, thus seem ingly disproving the theory that color and fragrance are given flowers for the purpose of attracting insects to assist in cross fertilization.
