It is not all gold that glitters, but it is for all gold that the trusts greedily rob the public. Togo and Rojestvensky may yet de cide to draw straws to see who loses. Judging from the situation in Chi cago, it may be in order next to form a strike-breakers' union. Russia has spent something over 1350,000,000 on the war to date, and the amount is designated as "running expenses." Rather costly getting away, it seems. Twenty-five thousand emigrants are expected at Ellis island this week, a majority of them Italians. It is likely that they are inspired by a curiosity to nee how they were voted at the last election. The czar gets up at 7 o'clock and breakfasts on tea and toast. After working two hours he walks for an hour in his park. In the afternoon he takes another walk and then works hard till 11 o'clock at night, except for tne time devoted to his dinner. With his wife and cnildren he usually con verses in French or English, to pre vent the attendants from understand ing them. About IS months ago Rev. H. W. Knickerbocker of Trinity Methodist Episcopal church, Iajs Angeles, was deposed for heresy. He went to a mini ns? camp, where he got. work as an ordinary miner. After a time lie pur chased some claims for a few dollars, later selling them for $I.Ho. Now lie is worth JlniMHio, owns '.',( claims out right, has an interest in as mauy more, besides doing a largo brokerage busi ness. Swift MacXeill is gaining unsought renown because of the breaks he makes in the house of commons. Not long ago he threw the house into con vulsions by saying: "J will now re peat wh-it I have been prevented from saying hitherto." This was shortly af ter he remarked in criticising the the speech of a cabinet minister: "It is necessary that some notice be taken of the reply which the honorable gen tleman did not make." The ;rest American Game. It has been related that Diogenes and a party of friends were reclining on the hay in the barn, indulging in a secret and seductive game of seven un." and that Diogenes, after putting the ace where, it would do him the most good, remarked there were two things that Time could not destroy; the interest in "high, low. jack and the came." and baseball. Thereupon it was announced in the afternoon that Diogenes was a philo sopher, as well as a youth with a keen regard for truth and accuracy. It is common knowledgethat "bridge" is for those who have money to lose; that euchre appeals to women, and that pedro and hearts are cut-throat amuse merits built for certain classes. But somehow, baseball appeals to all. It i; to the creat majority the American game. It is amuse ment Jthat calls for shouts and volt unit hand-clanoins. It drives away the blue devils. It makes you forget that business is bad and profit scant. It heals domestic troubles. It induces toys to cut out cigarets and bad habits and strive for brawn. And it arouses public sentiment. We may be a little shy in rendering proper credit to men who have achieved tame in letters, in art. in music, but we bow low to men whose one talent is the ability to play ball hard and well, and thui ic rmr wav of -cettinc Close tO their hearts and letting them know that we are friendly; that we love them; that we will cheer their victor irs and weep over their defeats. The Three Eye league season opens tomorrow. Now. boys, go ahead and grab that flag. We need it in our business. The Census In in Philippine. The census bureau has made pub lic the results of its census of the Phil ippine islands, the principal object of which was to form a basis for the es tablishment of Philippine legislature. The population of the archipelago compos d of 34 2 islands, is T.35.42.. Foreign number about 5'.o, of whom three-fourths are Chinese. Of 3his number 7.0oM"0 are more or less civilized. The wild tribes form about y oer cent of the population. The civ ilized tribes are practically all adher-J ents of the Catholic church. The Moros and Mohammedans and the oth er wild people have no recognized re ligious belief. More than half the pop ulation cannot either read or write in any language. A majority are engaged in farming small tracts of land alternating this with fishing; while the women weave hats and cloths. Eleven per cent of the pupils of the schools understand English. In 1902 there were 42 news papers 18 in English and 24 in Spanish. THE HOTELS. At the Harper J. J. Harrington, Kansas City; Will E. Vawter, Roches ter. N. Y.: H. L. B. Kusick. H. F.

There are so-called extracts, wines and cordials of cod liver oil that are said to contain the active principles but not the oil itself. This is absurd on its face. You might as well extract the active prin ciples of wheat and make bread with them. The best form of cod liver oil, that can be digested and assimilated most easily, is Scott's Emul- sion. . . . Vir VI T p!e free. SCOTT & BOWK E, 409 ptari Street, New Tark. story! DAILY SHORT THE HOLLAND'S Origlnal-1 Harry Holland was an all round good fellow. He loved bis wife and their two little children devotedly, but did not hesitate to risk his and their happiness by what he considered harm less affairs with women. Clara, bis wife, wn one of nature's peeresses, and every uiie who knew the couple wondered bow Holland coiiUl le eveu amused with other women. Never! be less he would get up an affair with soiue creature who had neither brsius nor principle and whose Ideality was often entirely "made up. Clara pre tended not to uotice these freaks, fully appreciating what it was to start evn the slightest breach between her bus l.nu.l mul lifi-xelf Va Hot bis. her ami their children's happiness all at stake? She argued that every iftau has bis weakness, and this was the onlv weakness of which her husband was irniltv. "Mv wife is a seusilde woman." Harry would say to his luti mate friends. "She knows it's a uian'i nature to rove, and it's a womihii's na ture to be true to oue man. She's the augel of tbe household." So luii it as Harry flitted froiu one flower to niioiber some of them wax and paint - there was 110 great barm done. But at last a woman got hold of him who kepi him dancing attendance upon her -so long a-nd so constantly that the affair became the town talk Then rumor legaii to undermine Mrs Hollaud's good mime. "You see how it Is," said thinking persons; "one sin leads to another. Clara Holland has len at lat affected by her husband's waist of principle. They won't hang together lone. What a pity for the children:" . Harry didn't exactly like tbe situa tiou and cautioned bis wife. She did not say. "Cease your attentions to other women and I'll cease accepting favors from other men." She simply said "Oh, Harry, we don't either of us meau anything by it:" This was not satis factory to Harry. For the flint time lie begun to tliink bis wife was uot the anicel of the botisebold after all. He nitnn to think of the terrible result that might accrue from his wife's con duct. What if his family should be broken up. bis children separated from him? II would le the woman's fault but that would not mend matters. One would suppose be would begin to set matters ritdit bv devoting himself to his home and letting other women alone. But the charmer who a I the time held oossessiou of him was not inclined to give him up. One morning as be was going in to breakfast the postman called, and Hoi land took the mail from him. Glancing over the letters, he saw one addressed to him In n woman's hand that he did not recognize. He thrust it In bis pocket and after breakfast, while read Ing his paper in the library, opened it It read : Ke-p an eye on your wife. She In pre paring to skip out with C. B. Holland sat so long in the library that his wife at last came in and asked him why he delayed goiug downtown, ns usual. When he looked tip nt her It wa with an agonized expression. "What's tbe matter, Harry?" she asked. He handed her the note. She rend it coolly and handed it back to him. "Well?" he said. "Well," she repeated, "of course the game's up." ' What do you mean?" "I mean that this farce may as well end now as at any time. We are both more interested In others than in our home and our children. Yet why should I do as that note indicates and make Ibe scandal nil Ihe worse? You. being :t man. can commit some tlngrtuit act that will gie me my legal freedom, and I can marry aguiu, whereas if ruu away with another man while I auL your wire our cmioreu will he lis- graced." Holland looked at his wife stunned. She went on : "Dou't blame me for this. I was happy with you and our dear little ones, who must now suffer, but you ed ucated me with your theory that great license should be given the In is hand and father, and from this I grew to as sume equal liberty for tbe wife and mother. You might have kept a stesdy course for the children's sake if not for mine." Her voice trembled and tears started to her eyes. "Tell me." be gasped. "Clara, have you done anything criminal?" She stood wilh her back turned to lit 111 without a reply. He fell back in Ids chair. Site turned and saw an ashen pallor, eyes glaring at vacancy, every evidence of a mental torture which if It could le transformed to the body would have delighted hu Apache In dfan. She turned ler eyes anpealingly toward s portiere screening The adjoin ing room. Afcce Holland. Harry's sis ter, brushed aside the curtains and stepped Into the room. "Harry." she said to her surprised brother. -1 wrote that letter for Clara and made her promise me she would not undeceive you afler this interview till 1 should aire her the word. She is as pure snd innocent as a lit lie child. I ad fined Ler some iliue ago to begin the preliminaries that have led up "to this lesson. If it is not enough to make you tneud your way the next one wiil b vry differeut and Irrevocable." Ths man's fscs Indicated the change occurring within him as he listened m the words. When thev were flnihi he took his wife !n his arms Then at Alice Holland's b-ck their children bounded in from the adjoining room jd were incrnded In their parents' em brace.
