Above all thing, don't let anything go by default one week from to-day. It i more or e cniol to Theodore Roosevelt to compare him with George Wahington and Abraham Lincoln. Where are the prophet who were pre dieting dire conwquenws of a trip by American war veeeela out of their own harbor t Where t There wfll be no "under secretary of Mate"; it'g too English, don'chcr know? But there probably will be several a ietant tecretarice of state. Aa uenal, lot of "prominent citiwna" were caught in the gambling raid at Kutland. Mr. rominent Citizen is quite apt to be in evidence when there is a flagrant case under coneidoratioi. Brother Howard Hindley of the Rut land Herald has certainly had greatness thrust upon him, for his picture was included by the Boston Herald yesterday in the list of gubernatorial timber in Vermont, along with a miscellaneous as eortmcnt of men known in Vermont pub lic life, past and prent; also the future, it may be added as an afterthought. Hindley Is the secoad editor to be las soocd and hurled into the arena, willy nilly. The other was Frank Greene of the St. Arbans Messenger but Fran slipped the lariat and is again a free man. Probably the Rutland editor will be equally facile. The special effort of Congressman David J. Foster of Vermont are now be ing directed in Congress toward the re duction of the parcel post en local , mail routes. In recently addressing the House of Representatives on the subject, Mr. Poster spoke as follow: "We ap propriated fche other day nearly $235, 000,000 for the expense of the post office department for the next fiscal year. We did it readily. It took but a short time On the other hand, I have been endeavor ' ing for long time to secure the neces- sary legislation changing the postage rates on parcels between every post office and the patron on any routes emanat ing therefrom, ' The propriety of this . legislation cannot, it seems to me, be , questioned by any fair-minded man who givos the subject thoughtful considers tioa. To-day one in San Francisco can send through the mail a package weigh ing 4 pounds to any patron on the rural routes emanating from my post office in Burlinsten for 64 cents. But if I desire to send the same package weighing 4 pounds to th same patron on the same auute emanating from the same post office in Burlington, where the package will be carried 3 miles instead of 3.000 miles, I have to pay the same 64 cents. I can send the same package to London for 48 cents. Of course it is needless to say that thb condition is ridiculous. But it is more than that. It i unjust and unreasonable, and we should not let the sixtieth Congress end without having taken action. A reasonable rate, of post age on parcels on routes emanating from the same office is asked for with practi cal unanimity by the patrons on our rural routes. From the stAndpoint of the government, we ought to take prompt action, for such a rate must inevitably greatly ; increase the income from these ron tea, which., now are .' burden upon the pent office department.".

VL TWO EFFECTS OF ; THE WORLD TOUR. The round-the-world tour of the Amer ican battleship fleet, which euded yester day so happily at Hampton Roads, Vir ginia, was a formal notification to the people of the earth that the United States is a world power with a naVy of the first class. Such a statement may appear fatuous and out of place; but it nevertheless is nothing more or less tthan true. The American navy of the present day is of comparatively recent growth, its inception on its present grade scale being only a quarter of a century old. It developed rapidly and is still developing rapidly, but although it has reached the proportions of consequence it had never had a formal introduction to the world unless the little tilt with Spain eleven year ago might be so considered. There fore, the tour of the world was a formal presentation of the fleet and it was accorded, in turn, the recognition which the magnitude of the itinerary demanded. The American navy is now known abroad, and its position is understood. So much, tb-n, for the reflected effects of the tanr. Coming next to the effect en the fleet itself, we have the words of Commander 8 perry bimielf that the trip baa beea of inemkuJaVie benefit. In fact, "It hs created the fleet." TUar Admiral Sperry says: "The aavy without a IWt i a mob of Wp, and the fleet without training i like a tm that has never played a p?rtk-e pm Nti?n may bui4 or aurcaase warships or auxiliai-iea. but the men trained and experienced in handling them cannot be bought." Moreover, it is his opinion that by means of it the officers and men learned economy of supplies, aUo the mainte nance of their ships in effective condition on the high with their own resources, and the cruise also insure the confident and instinctive handling of ships which is vital in battle. It seems that notwith standing the tremendous cost of the world tour, it has been extremely valu able as a training. j CURRENT COMMENT 1 Women's Courts. ' The ladles, bless, 'em! Representa tives of the ; principal female organi sations of this city went before the com" mittee of the Legislature, which is sit ting here at present investigating the needs of the town in thJ matter of courts of inferior jurisdiction. Headed by juriht in petticoats, the delegation made the highly interesting proposal that there should bo separate courts for the women, in onbr that thev might be saved from the 'degradation" of bring arraigned with men. Remarkable moderation that! We would go further. Not only should there be separate courts for women, there should also 1)0 separate Lv. enforced by , separate policemen. Let us hsve juries of ladies, whenever orW of the Sex is involved. A good beginning was made in the eajw of the cotlegea that so stirred up the early Victorian period, with their prudes for proctors, dowagers for ilcntis. Besides, if we have "Women's Bible," why should wo not have a Wo man's Statute .. Book T . li may be- rmwlinir to the coarse runsculine intelligence, to find the same Indict who are clamoring for equal treatment with men one day, demand ing special treatment the next. But after all that is- only another riddle of the, painful universe. Woman would not. be nearly so interesting if she. were not so 'surprising, Xew York Evening Sun, M0NTPEL1ER Judge Carlcton is Seriously i 111 With 1 ; ' Pneumonia.

Pile cntilh'd, "Art' we to Inlieve in an Kverlaatiiig lli ll?"). I wondered why tho gi'litlemuil did. Hot hav what the 'Itell" of the llible. was.

I am goin to tjuote now from an eminent jli(lc seliolar.. In the Old Testament tho only word translated by the Kngliah wonl "llell'' i "Sheol." This word "Sheol" M llied ill ill the Old 'IWanient li3 times. In 31 place it u translated "(.'rave" and 'jdl." in 31 plaees it i traiMlated ' Hell." and ia 3 of the 31 plsee. Ps. .'.'.: 13, IV HO; 1.1, and lta. 11:0. the margin explains that "k'rave" i mcunt. while in the other '!t tlie wordn "grav?-" or "pit" would nmkc Is-tter M'iie than the word "Hell" with its generally tmdcrsotnd iiicaiiing. There are tiutnv texts where "Sheol" is translat ed "lU-ll," ami I could quote them, but fear the editor would think it too long a letter. In the New Testament, the Creek word Hades corresponds exactly to the Hebrew word "Mi-'ol," as proot see the quotations of the pontic from the Old Testament, in which thev render it Hades. For inetance. Act i:'.'", '"Tliou wilt not leave my soul in Ild:s," i a quotation from P. In: 10, "Thou wilt not leave my soul in 'Sheol.' " There are als many texts where "Hades" is trail lated "Hell." "Tlie Creek word tartaroo occur but once in, the New Testament atj'l i translated 'Hell.' found in II Pet. 2:4. The word tartaroo, nW bv Peter, reemble tart am, a word ued In Creeian mythobvgy as the mime for a dark abyss or prison, but the word tarturoo seems to refer more to an act than a place. There is one more Creek word vised in the Xew Testament, which i translated by our Fnylish -word 'llell,' the word 'Oehenna.' It is the Grecian mode of spelling the Hebrew words translated, the alley of Hinnam.'

The severe demoralization into which the machine newspapers of Vermont fell at the mere mention of Clenwnt end Clementism was autlk'iently sur prising. The fact that the News seems to have partly reeovered Is reassuring. tliere must be some terribly bed con sciences in state editorial sanctums to acrouut for the. recent hysteric. .Even now, the Herald doe not exactly know what it wag till about. The concluding sentence of the above: extract from the News is the first bit of horse sense that has appear ed since the Barro Times frightened the little children and old women br an ex tremely casual allusion to Clementism and what it had done for the state. Let tw hone that the other fluttered nervous systems of the machine! will now proceed to recover tone. The Herald, on its part, nuwt plead "not guilty" to ny wriim share in this nervctshattering performance. It has done it part as a chronicler of public events in emphasising the un rest ftnd indignation that pervades the state. It has faithfully reproduced all clothes the nerves and 'muscles with warm fat.fills the veins with rich blood. It makes children rugged and hardy and fearless of the cold. It fills the whole body with warmth and life and energy.
