The Case In a Nutshell.
Gen. Patrick A. Collins puts the
Philippine annexation matter in a con
cise and patriotic manner in a com
munication to the New York World.
He says: "A true republic resting for
its authority to govern upon the con
Bent of the governed,' cannot rule vas
sal peoples nor indulge in the glory
of foreign dominion. If the Philip
pines are not fit for self-government
we do not want them in our system.
If they are. let them set up for" them
selves". Our safety is in remaining
as w e are the United States of Amer
icaand that only in minding our
own business and letting others work
out their own salvation in their own
way. We owe no active duty to oth
er peoples. Our example is suflici
ient. No intrusion by us into any
other land. No entangling alliance
with any other country. Peace and
commerce with all."
Outing for Novemler is an all-alive
number, wide in its scope and timely
in its subjects. The horse in the
show ring, the football plaver on the
gridiron, the golfer in championships,
the tennis player at the nets, the
yacht on the storm-tossed bosom or
old ocean, the trapper in the woods,
the athlete in his Chicago home, the
salmon, the deer and the goose are
only some of its varied contents by-
such well-known authorities as Wal
ter Camp on football, J. Parmley
Paret on Tennis, A. II. Godfrey on
the horse. Ed W. Sandys on rod and

Waiter kDj Waitresses.
Talking of waitresses, a New York
hotel keeper sajs that although they
may possess some superior qualities for
such service there arc, on the other
hand, snch drawliacks as make it cer
tain that they would never be accept
able to the majority of men who would
have to be served by them. Ho says:
"I think the objection to them would
be based chiefly on the fact that they
never show especial attention to any
person. I never knew a woman who
waited on a man to trouble herself in
the Wst about the manner in which
sho served him. It makes absolutely no
difference whether they receive liberal
tips or not. They may bo quiet, neat
and quick, but they would never pick
Dut one pieco of beef becauso it was
better than another or make any effort
to Ret the bef-t of what was to bo had
'.u the kitchen. That sort of attention
makes a man worth his feo to the men
who tip him.
"It is this special service that makes
a waiter supi rior to the liest of his as
sociates. Women never detect any dif
ference between the quality of ouo dish
and another. They are ail tho same,
and pxxl servico require merely that
they shall be set down noiselessly and
brought quickly. Tbi-re tho servico of
tho waitress ends, t-ho can bout any
man at thoso features of tho business.
Uut she euunot select fcr lxim anything
better than the rest of the customers
pet. Usually sh does not uotico any
difference in them. That deficiency is
the nafcguard of tho waiter and will
keep his place uocrru for him."
Piseous are carrful'y trained. The
younji bonier is taken half a mile the
first day. a milo tho second, two miles
tho third, and so on, doubl us the dis-
tauco each time. It must no liberated
each timo only in tho same dihiction as
to its loft, for a bird can bo trained
alone onlv ono route at a timo. When
40 miles have been reached, a week's
rest comes between. A hundred miles
are cnouph for a youuj; bird's first year.
So essential is the training that old
birds are taken only two miles out for
tho first lesson of a season, though they
may have llown their 250 miles the
year preceding. Tho end of the next
season, however, will, if the birds are
willing and tho trainer patient, be
crowned by tho accomplishment of a
300 milo Ilijjht. As yon get higher In
tho scalo of distance, longer and longer
rests are needed.
Male birds are generally osed for
long distances. Family matters are apt
to engrofs tho attention of the hen,
though sho is still capable of good work
when sho has a mind for it. Good

THE MOST REMARKABLE I
True Statement m Record It Is Made by
an I a dim am Man.
He has spent (-00 in patent medi
cines and doctor bills without beinr
cured. One dollar's worth of Mor.
row's Kid-ne-Oids did the work. Manv
of our people are interested in the
story of Josephns Osbourn, who
lives at 925 Jackson street. Columbus,
Ind. Listen to the repetition of his
story and you will find vou have had
a similar experience: "For the past
three vears I have been afflicted with
kidney complaint. My symptoms
were as follows: Fearful kidney back
ache, urinary disturbances and ner
vousness, from which I was unable to
sleep well at night, which produced a
general broken down condition of my
health. My condition was so serious
that I woul'd lose two weeks at a time
from work. I grew so weak that I
felt unable to perform mv dav s work,
I have taken several kinds of kidney
pills and all the various kinds of kid.
ney remedies I ever heard or read
about without lteing benefited in the
least. I had been treated bv doctors
in this city and bv specialists for kid
ney and bladder trouble without get
ting anv relief. A short tune ago I
read alout Morrow's Kid-ne-Oids and
my wife advised me to give them a
trial. I got a sample package and
used them. U-ing great lv relieved in
three days' time. Up to date I have
taken less than a dollar's worth of
Kid-ne-Oids and I consider myself
cured. During the continuation of
mv illness I have spent fully $.r00 in
doctor bills, which amounted to uoth
inr. This makes quite a striking
comparison, w hich is worth your time
and consideration. Mv wife declares
that I apjear like a new man since my
cure, that I am more pleasant and
agreeable and not so nervous and ir
ritable; you may also understand that
our hearts are filled with thankfulness
to be relieved from this great burden
which made our home miserable and
To confirm the statement of Mr
Osbourn we want von to write him
a!out Morrow's Kid-ne-Oids, enclos
ing stamp. He is a grateful man and
will be glad to write vou how much
he was lxnetited bv their use. Do
not confound Morrow's Kid-ne-Oids
with any kind of kidney pills;
thev are not puis at all, but yellow-
tablets, aud are put up in wooden
boxes which sell at 50 cents a box and
are never sold in bulk. Morrow's

THE OLD CLERK.
A Pathetic Picture Too Frequently Pre
sented In the Cnalness World.
He is a famili-ir figure in almost cv
ery business housw the old clerk.
White haired, thin, with clothes that
ore always of decent black and scrnpu
Ionsly brushed, he has sat behind tho
same dot'k ' or stood behind the sr.nie
cotmter for dear knows how many
vears, prowing thinner and older nnd
mustier as tho timo went by. Sonic
tiiucs yve meet hini in the early mora
injr poing down to office or stole, walk
i22 the same route ho has trod fc." 20 cr
SO years with a rvsularity so perfect
that tho very policeman on the beat
miRht set his watch by bis movements.
Often, lata at night, when we are po
ing home from tho theater we see him
through the iron yrated window, still
bending oyer bis ledger, for ho works
slowly nowadays and must yvcik over
time to mnko nn his accounts. His eys
are prow i:ij dim aad he fumbles with iiis
glas-scs, Lid hands lire losing their trick
cf deft penmanship, and his brain its
swiftness. Ho duos not understand U.
but tho fly boys all about him, young
enough to bo his suns, rush through
their tasks and are out and t;e:ie while
he is still laboring over his. tlowly bv.t
surely it is being borne in on hiui that
ho cannot compete with them.
In tho manager's ofiico he is already
becoming problem. Customers have
begun to complain t:f his slowness. A
man, not intentionally cruel, called out
that ho wanted somebody who was alive
to wait on him; not that old fossil. A
woman comidaiucd that ho had net
matched it sample and asked v'hy they
kept blind people. The old clerk heard
them, mid it sounded like tho knell of
his own foreboding thoughts. He knows
that tho time is coining whin he must
go. Ho ha.-i seen it happen before with
others. First he will bo retired to some
other department, with loss work and
less pay. They will remember for a
timo tho many years of faithfnl service
in virion ho has soon the firm grow from
bmall beginnings to present wealth.
Then after a timo they will forget
even that, nnd ono day when he has
been slower than usual or somo mis
take has passed unnoticed by his dim
eyes they will send for him to come to
the president's rtwrn, and ho will be
told that they think it best t3 put a boy
in that department somebody who is
young and quick and can get about
swiftly. Sometimes they give him a
littlo pension, ofte-ner not, but in ei
ther case he goes out it poor, heart bro
ken old m;in. They talk to him of eu-
jeying leisure, but ho has never learned
tho art of idling, and so he hangs about
the storo after ho is dismissed, walk
ing by it through sheer forco of habit.
To others it is a commonplace enough
storo or ollice. To him it is the mauso
leum vhere lies buried his youth, with
all its dreams and hopes and ambitions,
and there is a tear under tho smile on
his wintry old face as ha says that he
has left Blank & Blank's and has got
too old to work. New Orleans Pica
