The people of Porto Rico and Ha

the others, it is different. The only
declaration by congress on this sub
ject is embodied in the McEnery res

claring its purpose to ratify the
treaty with Spain. In that resolution
occurs the following passage:
By the ratification of the pending
treaty of peace wilh Spain, it is not
intended to incorporate the inhabi
tants of said island into citizenship of
the United States, nor is it intended
to permanently annex- said island as'

There can be no doubt that all these
interests will be best promoted by a
guaranteed independence of the Phil

Mrs. Hugo Lange of Brooklyn has

visit to the Island last winter she was
shocked at the treatment of the horses
One of the peculiar Institutions to
which she was introduced was a nose
bridle, a sort of iron muzzle with saw
edges, used on the Cuban mule Instead
of a bit. A strap attached to a ring in
the muzzle and running up over the
forehead of the animal keeps the nose

to the outer ends. When the Cuban

Srlentlfle Principles ?).
Now that "child study" has been ele
vated to the dignity of a science It is
Interesting to note some of the theories
applied. A professor in the Northwest
ern university disagrees so emphatic
ally with his wife's ideas that she con
aiders herself entitled to a divorce
and has applied for it. Mr. Stecker,
wishing to rear their Infant on sclen
tlflc principles, allowed the child to be
fed once in three hours during the day
and once in four hours in the night.
Crying he regarded as objectionable,
so argued with the baby when it lifted
up its voice and wept, and if the argu
ment did not silence it in two minutes
the professor whipped it until it stop
ped or held his hand over its mouth.
Unreasoningly enough, the mother ob
jected, as the baby seemed in danger
of strangling at such times. She ob
jected also to his original method of
holding the child suspended by an ear
while he whipped It. For these trivial
reasons she has asked for a divorce on
the ground of cruelty.
A Convenient Hammock.
The hammock which is the most pop
ular this year and which people are al
ready beginning to buy is the pulley
hammock, though that may not be the
actual name for it- This hammock has
many advantages. Across the center
are several strips of wood, which make
It possible, by dropping one end and
raising the other, to have a comforta
ble lounging chair. The hammock is
very simply constructed and is regulat
ed with pulleys by the person occupy
ing It. One convenience which many
women will appreciate Is the ease of
getting in and out. To get In and out
of an ordinary hammock with anything
like grace is almost an impossibility.

A year or two ago, at the Columbia
theater. Miss Ellen Terry played Yo
lande, in a grewsome leper drama writ
ten by young Laurence Irving, with
out injury to her health, but apparent
ly her powerful performance set Ger
trude Potter Daniels to thinking over
what might be the physical conse
quences of simulating and constant
mental dwelling on the dread disease;
hence her book. It seems' a strange
thing that two sisters should develop
literary talent at about the same time,
but there is no family likeness between
Mrs. Daniels' "Halamar" and Miss
Margaret rotter's much discussed "A
Social Lion," nor is there any between
this debutante's effort and her forth
coming quiet tale of mediaeval monas
tic life. If it was strange for two
young daughters of a Chicago million
aire to suddenly join the ranks of writ
ers, it was also strange that they
should write so well, and passing

Queen Victoria, who lately passed
her eighty-first birthday, has learned
Hindoostanee within the last ten years
and now speaks it fluently. In spite of
ber many cares, says Pearson's Maga
zine, and "in spite of the fact that she
has devoted so much time to the stucry
of politics as to have become one of
the greaest living authorities on the
practical politics of Europe" Queen
Victoria has devoted a part of every
day for the last ten years to the Hin
doo language and literature. She keeps
a diary in Hindoostanee, talks in their
own tongue with her palace servants
of that nationality and' often astonishes
visitors from India by making unex
pected observations In that language.

A Hint aa to the Teeth.
Sound teeth not only add to one's
comfort, but they prevent disease.
Many diseases of the eye, ear and cav
ities of the head are traceable to un
sound teeth, and there Is not a disease
to which the body is liable that Is not
aggravated by an unhealthy condition
of the teeth. Eye diseases are espe
cially common as the result of poor
teeth. These affections may vary from
a simple dimness of sight to total
blindness, the symptoms, however,
usually disappearing when the teeth
are attended to. Poor teeth are, more
overl a common cause of indigestion.
for good digestion can take place only
when the food is thoroughly masticat
ed, and this demands sound and
health v teeth. Proper care of the
teeth during childhood often means
prevention of much trouble later in
life. A physician desiring to ascertain
the percentage of children who cared
for their teeth properly distributed
printed slips in a school having the
questions "Do you cleanse your teeth
with a brush every day?" "Do you
cleanse your teeth with a brush twice
a day?" Of 700 pupils only 50 cleansed
their teeth twice a day, 273 used the
brush sometimes, and 173 did not even
own a brush.
