COLLECTING THE CHINESE INDEM
NITY. It is authoritatively announced that
the powers will insist upon the pay
ment of Chinese import duties in
gold. The aggregate indemnity de
manded is $3'U.OOO.00O, and it is pro
posed to collect the amount by plac
ing a representative or representatives
of the powers in charge of the Chin
ese custom houses. China's money is
silver, and as silver is at a uicount
of 50 per cent compared to gold, gold
fayment of customs will be eqniva
ent to doubling the amount of the in
demnity. Through this means it will
be actually increased from $ 320,000.
000 to $640,000,000. To comply with
the demand of the powers it will be
necessary for China to increase the
tariff duties, since otherwise the
revenues will be insuQcient. Yet to
this England objects. Her trade with
China is greater than that of any
other nation, and she fears that if
tariff duties are increased the Chinese
demand for her products will be di
minished and her trade thereby ad
versely affected. What the outcome
will be time alone can determine.
On the surface the powers appear to
have preferred a demand which they
know China cannct meet for the ex
press purpose of making the expected
and calculated failure to meet it a pre
text for seizing territory and dismem
bering the empire. This theory is
corroborated by the refusal to give
China 30 years in which to pay the in
demnity In annual installments.
From the beginning the policy of the
United States has been to present the
pirtitlon of China as a means to the
maintenance of the "open door." The
indications aro that In the' end this
policy will be thwarted, and thatChlna

THAT AWH'L OINIEEN.
The uniform reports from the army
posts showing the bad effects of abol
ishing the canteen afford another les
son on the folly of trying to make
men virtuous by force, says the New
York World. A large company of
-temperance women' with the best
intentions in the world, but with far
more zeal than knowledge, swarmed
into the galleries of congress, and by
the irresistible force of female suasion,
compelled that body against its rec
orded, judgment and against the ad
vice of the secretary of war and nearly
all of the general officers, to abolish
the post canteen where the soldiers
could buy beer and wine. And then
they went away happy In the belief
that the "drink demon" was banished
from the army, and that all of Uncle
Sam's bluecoats would at once become
llow little they knew of human
nature as arTtcted by the tedium of
dull routine in the rusting time of
peace, is shown by the results.
Never in the history of the 8th
regiment," says an officer at Fort
Snelling. "have the 'officers bad so
much trouble with Intoxicated sol
diers as since the army canteen was
abolished." The number of deser
tions has largely increased. The
guard houses are full, and the conrt
martlals are bnsy with non-commissioned
officers who get crazy drunk
on the "hot stuff" of the Baloons.
One of the first things that the new
congress does should be to restore the

TEACHING A YOUNG LARK.
How Ita Mother Coachei It te Hop
About ana Kir.
J. M. Barrie. the noted Scottish story
writer, in Scribner's Magazine told
bow a young lark cot Its first lesson.
A baby lark bad sot out of Its nest
sideways, a fall of a foot only, but a
dreadful drop for a baby.
You can get back this way," Its
mother said, and showed it the way.
But when the baby tried to leap it fell
on its back. Tbeu the mother marked
out lines on the ground on which It
was to practice hopping, and it got
along beautifully bo long as the mother
was there every moment to say, "How.
wonderfully yon hop!"
"Now teach me to bop up," said the
little lark, meaning that it wanted to
fly. and the mother tried to do It iu
vain. She could soar up. up. very
bravely, but she could not explain how.
she did it.
'Wait till the suu cornea out after
the rain," she said. baT remembering,
'What is sun? What is rain?" the
little bird asked. "If you cannot teach
me to fly, teach uie to sing."
"When the sun comes out after rain.'
the mother replied, "then you will
know bow to sing."
. The rain came and glued the littla
bird's wings together.
I shall never be able to fly or sing,"
Then of a sudden It began to blink
Its eyes, for a glorious light bad spread;
over the world, catching every leaf
and twig aud blade of grass in tears
and putting a smile iu every tear. The
baby bird's breast swelled, It unl not
know why: It fluttered from the
ground, it did uot know why.
"The suu baa come out after the
ralnr It trilled. "Thank you, sunl
Thank you! Thauk you! Oh. mother,
did you bear me? I can sing."
Then it floated up, up. calling,
"Thank you. thank you. thank you!"
to the sun. "Oh. mother, do you
see me? I am flying!"
JACK RABBITS FOR ALASKA.
Kaasaa Loner Kara Will Be Imported
to ft'ortbrra Rrglon.
Charles Payne of Wichita. Kan., a
dealer in wild animals, shipped the
other night to the Alaska Commercial
company at Sitka ten pairs of Kansas
rabbits, to become the ancestry of
what the company hopes to see a
sturdy, numerous and thriving race of
rabbits, says the Kansas City Times.
It appears from the correspondence
that led to the purchase of the Kansas
rabbits tbat there Is a species of gray
wolf In Alaska whose fur Is exceed
ingly valuable. Tbls wolf seems to
be in process of extinction, but It was
recently discovered tbat the meat of
rabbits agreed with them, and It Is for
the purpose of saving the wolves tbat
the company referred to Intends per
petuating the rabbits.
The rabbits, when they arrive in
Alaska, will be placed upon an Island
until enough of them are produced to
Btock the gray wolf regions, when
they will be turned loose to multiply
some more and become a prey for the

A sturgeon weighing CoO pounds was
netted off Lagoon Island in the Hudson
river, three miles above Albany, the

has been seen in Albany for 15 years
past, says the New York Sun. It was
towed to Albany alive by the fisher
men, who were required to man two
rowboats. Hundreds viewed the speci
men of Albany sturgeon. The bead
weighed 125 pounds.

As to other possibilities of the
cannon, there, is - that of abolishing
frost. Herbs and resinous wood are
often burned so as ts shelter the
plants under a screen, of emoke. but
just a few nights ago the cannon were,
tried instead in the Beaujolaia. Two
of them were apportioned to a hec
tare, about two and one-half acres,
and they were fired horizontally about
two yards over the fields. The ground
was rendered damp and warm, though
the surrounding soil was cold aud
frost-laden. But the most astounding
use of this artillery has been found in
Madagascar and Algeria to light
grasshoppers. It Is claimed that the
shot cuts a diicouraging swath in the
Invading swarms. And now the ques
tion is, what might it not do to a
cyclone? There Is serious food for
reflection in that same question.
The articles on "Russia of Today,"
by Henry Norman, which have been a
feature of Scribner's Magazine (but
have been interrupted for several
numbers) are resumed in the June
number with a paper on "Finland,"
which is just now the center of Inter
est on account of the efforts of the
Russian government to suppress the
Finnish language in official business.
Mr. Norman writes very sympathet
ically of this hardy people who have
so long maintained their individuality
while a part of the Russian em
pire. He gives remarkable In
stances of their energy and in.
tegrlty and shows the pathos of
tneir attempt to keep their iden
tity against heavy odds. By way of
contrast to these people of the north
is John La Farge's account of bis
visit to the bamoans the neoole
among whom Stevenson found bis
adopted home. Mr. LaFar&re describes
and pictures them as an artist with a
rare poetic faculty of narrative
Many of the illustrations are from
sketches made at the time. Walter
A. Wyckoff in this number deals with
a happy episode in his career as a
worklagman. He tells of the life of a
section-hand on the Union Pacilia rail
road, and gives a vivid account of the
manly qualities of the men he labored
wun. All oi Mr. Wyckoff's expert
ences lead him to be an optimitt in
regaru 10 tne American laborer.
There are numerous other equally en
tertaining and well selected features.
Tlie complete novel in the June
isew" Llpplncott Magazine is "Four
Leaved Clover." by Maxwell Gray,
uthor of that noted book. "The Si
lence of Dean Maitland." To keep on
a par with the latter, any succeeding
taie must be exceedingly good, and it
is not claiming too much for "Foor-
Ueaved Clover-' to assign it equality
wun its predecessor, it is the narra
tive of a young English girl's heart
in cor met wun many discoursge
tnents. At last she triumphs in the
love of a noble gentleman who was
the victim of a boyish trick only too
possioie in real me.
There is a deep pathos in the pic
ture by W. L. Tavlor, called "The
Passing of the Farm." which appears
in the June issue of the Ladies' Home
Journal. The bowed and sad-faced
figure of the lonely widow, standing
un one nana on tne open door oi the
waiting coach while she takes a long
last look at her old home, makes a
Urong appeal to the feeling. The sad
November sky, the distant misty bills,
the closed house, the deserted barns,
tnd above all. the dejected figure,
bring a lump Into one's throat.
A woman who has had experience
ith this disease, tells how to prevent
any aangerous consequences Irom it.
She says: "Our three children took
whooping cough lat summer, our
oaby bov being only three months
old, and owing to our giving them
Chamberlain's Couh Remedy, they
lost none of their plumpness and came
jut in much better health than other
children whose parents did not use
this remedy. Our oldest little giil
would call lustily for cough syrup be
