Lctdlcg Notices J&o to -. e a Hue. FRIDAY. DECEMBER 14. l'.MJO. William Jennings Bryan declines to become a senator of the United Slates. He says he has other business that re quires his attention. Hurrah for Waterbury! According to u New York paper, this city is fourth in the birth rate column, in the United States. As one of our school ofiicials remarked this morning: "That is why we need new and increased school accommodations every year." The question of consolidation is wanning up considerably, and that is just what is needed. A full, free and open discussion of the whole matter should not be shunned, but rather courted. There eanuot be too much light thrown on the subject. Every citizen is interested and his ideas are worth consideration just, as well as his neighbor's. Turn on the light. For tlie present stale of things in this country, the republican, party, of onrse, is tlie responsible parly. While professing to believe in protection, they have left our shipping to the chances of foreign competition to an extent which has proved its ruin, says one writer. When they came into power in 1S1j our flag still Hew. oil Atlantic steamships. By lSi',7 it had absolute ly vanished from steamships crossing the Atlantic. For near to forty years they have had entire control of our national policy 'in this matter, and the passage of two trilling ship subsidy bills is the sum total of their perform ance for the revival of our shipping. Their friends among American econo mists have been urgent and unceasing in their advance to take vigorous ac tion; but the protected manufacturers seem to have had tlie monopoly of at tention, and to have been as blind as the politicians in this direction. Now at last they seem to have become awake to the importance of the ques tion, and their effort to do something is about as ill-conceived as any meas ure ever brought fill-ward for tlie pur pose. Because other countries are pay ing subsidies to shipping, if is assumed that we must pay subsidies also. This argument has been employed at vari ous times, but it is' met by tlie solid objection that subsidies (except for wolf scalps and the like) are contra ry to the genius and practice of the American people,. They have been twice tried in behalf. of American su gar. in one of our. recent tariffs, and nothing in that tariff went so far to cause its speedy destruction as the bounties 011 sugar. The free, trade demagogue wants nothing better than a subsidy to whet his teeth on, as he is sure that no amount of reasoning will ever persuade tlie American vot er that subsidies are anything but 'steals.'' And to risk the future of our merchant marine on a subsidy measure, after two such experiences, is to court disaster. It is only a short time ago since the republicans' were making all sorts of predictions about the war in the Phil ippines. After McKinley was elected, they said, it would end very quickly. But like the poor who are always with us, the, Philippine war st ill .haunts us in cur dreams. A few months ago we were assured that Aguiualdo and his followers only kept the held be cause they hoped Mr Bryan would be successful at the polls, which .would mean the defeat of imperialism and the attempt to force our rule umin another people , against their will. These peace predictions have not been ful filled, as the latest accounts from Ma nila show that the Filipinos are as de termined as ever" to keep on fighting for self-government. Outside cf tlie immediate 'neighborhood of Manila the authority of ihe United States is not recognized, and Ame: lean sold:' s have to bo 911 constant guard against at tacks, which are of daily occurrence. Nor is4 there any prospect of thing. improving in the immediate or the re mote future Imperialism lias plunged us into a war which may for genera tions to come be a constant drain on the resources cf this country. . Already imperialists aud their organs are be ginning'to realize the stupendous "char acter of the task the administration has HnrtiTtaken-T.iHV are no longer in dulging in the optimistic views of a few months 'ago. The Buffalo Ex press, .u republican and, therefore, an imperialistic, organ, sounds a note of warning? It docla res' that "it is high time the American public got. over its delusions abouk this war. It has de ceived itself too' long with the notion fhat'it was lighting merely an ambi tious rebel chief, -representing only a fraction of a single tribe, aud main taining his power as much by the" ter ror he inspires as by any sense bf pat riotism"." Wo are Hot righting a govern ment t" Bix army, but a whole people." After stilting'- that the' Filipino strug gles for self-government -may last for many generations, this imperialistic or gan tells ns we must adopt the savage methods - England is employing in South Africa. ,. . Burn, slaughter and destroy is to be 't he order of tlie day. England,- who from long "prric-t ice has become an expert in the " jvork of trampling out nationalities, has set the pace, and we must keep abreast of her. Here is the task assigned to the republic of Washington and Jefferson as outlined by the Buffalo Express. HEARD IN PASSING Barbed wire has often been used to keep out enemies, hut the English- are using it, around Johannesburg, to keep residents of the town from sending supplies to the Boers in the field. Senator Toller was right. The peo ple of this country would resent the slightest interference by England with the construction or control of the Nicaragua canal. An American canal is demanded. Senator Towne says that although lie knows his term in the senate will be -short lie hopes for an opportunity to vote against a few of the objection able measures that are being pushed by tlie majority. The advance peddling of the govern ment cotton crop report, in Wall street, calls for Uie immediate exposure and dismissal of the guilty employe or. em ployes of the agricultural department. Do you hear. Secretary Wilson V Republicans in congress are preach ing good feeling and big appropria tions. In other words, they wish the democrats to feel so kindly toward ev erybody and everything that they will not call attention to treasury looting, for fear of hurting somebody's feel ings. According to the correspondence of a London paper from Manila, "the posi tion of the Americans is becoming in creasingly hopeless. Money is freely subscribed to purchase arms and am munition for the . insurgents. The Americans will never capture tlie rebel contraband vessels."' SHIPLOAD OF WIVES. The old colonial scheme of bargain ing for wives lias become popular among the Hungarian residents of Schoenville. This morning a score of blooming damsels from the fair plains of the Danube arrived in Pittsburg and hurried at. once to the new settle ment, where they will soon become the better halves of as many lusty work men employed in llie pressed steel car works. The method of the Virginia planters in purchasing a spouse for a few pounds of tobacco will lie followed in a. certain measure in Schoenville. Of course, there will be no open barter ing and money is not likely 10 be ex changed, lint, nevertheless, the men who claim tlie hands of llie Hungarian maidens must be aide to show Unit hey are able to support, the brides who have journeyed so far to complete tlie conjugal happiness cf the mill men. Since the founding of the new town on the banks of the Ohio there has been an amazing dearth of marriageable woman in the community. American girls of the (iibson type, the tailor made variety of the favorite silk-liiu-d beauties don't meet with much favor in the eyes of Schoonville. The would be bridegrooms are compelled to get up early and work late, so that there is little opportunity to go a-courting beyond their own neighborhood. Final ly the news of the scarcity ot eligible girls in Schoonville drifted beyond the sea. If was a pleasant duty for Cu pid to perform, and when he whispered the glad tidings under the cottage win dows on the far away plains of Hun gary he was greeted with many a rap turous sigh. Twenty girls were will ing to risk tlie tempests of an autumn voyage on the Atlantic to become the brides of happy homes in America, and banding themselves together with Cu pid, they camp over under tlie love god's tender care. When tliey readied their journey's end liiis morning the entire population of -the town was on hand to receive them. Two engage ments were announced before 110011, and others will follow in rapid succes sion. Courtships will lie short in SchoehYllle. and other maidens soon will lie Imported. As may be supposed tlie task of having and holding a wife in tlie new town is not one of extreme ease, and the. 111011 who have been made happy to-day will treat their wives well. Pittsburg Chronicle-Telegraph. :iE SPOKE TO TIIEM.

I back to the jury and began telling tlie story to the judge. The judge, in a courteous manner, said: "Address yourself to tlie jury, sir." The man made a short pause, but, notwithstanding what had been said to him. continued his narrative. The judge was then more explicit, and said to hh:i. "Speak to the jury, sir: the men silling behind you ou the bene es.'' - 't he witness at once turned around, and. making an awkward bow, said, witli perfect gravity: "Cmd morning, gentlemen." THE RETORT COURTEOUS. An eminent Scottish divine met two of his own parishioners at the house of a lawyer whom he considered too sharp a practitioner. The lawyer ungraciously put the question: "Doctor, these are mem bers of your flock. May I ask, '1)0 you look upoiMheiu as white or black sheeaV " "I don't know,"' answered the divine, dryly, "whether they are black or white sheep, but I know that if they are long here they are pretty sure to be fleeced." , ANIMAL WHICH SUPPLIED HIM.

A good story has reached Sterling of Miss Ruth Bryan, daughter of the erstwhile great William Jennings. Bryan. She started to school one morn ing not long ago and after a desper-' ate rim for a street car she finally succeeded in catch it. -As she took her seat she gasped,' "Well, I'm glad one of the family can run for some thing and get lt.'VSterliug, Hi, Stand ard.; : - A YOUNG COWBOY. Martin Wlutin, a boy of but 15 years, passed through Milwaukee early this week after haying brought a train load of cattle from his father's ranch to Chicago ami sold them. The. boy was alone in charge of the herd, having only some of his father's men to take care of the ca.ttle, and he attended to the collection of the thousands of dol lars which were the price of the stock. This visit to Chicago was the second that the lad has made in the same manner, as a year ago he made a sim ilar trip. then, as last week, going to the home of his grandfather and uncle near Grten Bay for a visit after depos iting in a Chicago bank the price Oi the cattle. On Tuesday he went back 10 his home in the far west, where he will spend tli? winter. Young Wintin is a Wisconsin boy, having been born at th? family home stead where lie visited a week ago. but went: to Montana with his parents when but a few years old. When he came cast lie was dressed nr. : yoitug cowboy, though not carrying the guns and wearing tlie buckskin trousers which are (tnunionly supposed to be a part of the wardrobe of a cowpuneher. Tlie sombrero which lie wore was but slightly different from tlie wide brimmed fedoras which were affected by .Milwaukee's swelldom during the slimmer, only it was bedecked with a cord of gilt, like, those worn by U. A. li. men. The most noticeable thing about the lad's costume was a heavy gold chain which hung about his neck, and which was many liims the weight of the watch whose guard it was. The chain hung over a fancy vest, and the trou sers the boy wore were long and wide at the bottoms. His shoes were scratched slightly- where the young cowpuneher had worn his spurs when in the cattle raising valley of his father's ranch. That was all there was to distinguish him from the ordi nary boy of his ege. Wintiu's home is near Deer Lodge City. in. the richest stock country of Montana, though it is up among the mountains in the western part of that state. His father was one of the earliest- slock raisers in mat part of Mon tana, having gone there win 11 it was a wilderness, though it is fairly well settled now. A large amount of stock is shipped out of the valley, and pari of it goes to Omaha, bin occasionally some of it is sent to Chicago instead. A year ago Wintin made his lirst trip alone in charge of a slock train, over llie Northern Pacific and down the Milwaukee road front St Paul. At Chicago ho completed the deal for the .sale of the stock, which his fallii'r had partially arranged in advance, and de posited in a Chicago bank the money which was paid to him. The trip last month was about the same, only that there were more cat tle in the train, lie went to. the farm near (Jreen Bay after completing1, the sale of his father's catlle. and is now probably at home again after his long trip of over 2.HU0 miles. The- stock men who accompanied him 011 his trip, taking care of t he. cattle ' while Ihey wcre en route, went hack to Montana at on v. Milwaukee Sentinel. A GOOD CITIZEN. A couple of actors were exchanging reminiscences at the Copeland the oth er evening. One was complaining of the very slim audiences lie had played to in Kansas this fall. "1 thought there was plenty' of pros perity this way." lie remarked, "but it hasn't come my way yet."' "What was tlie smallest crowd you ever played toY" queried tlie second ac tor. "Oh. a score of so of people."' "Well, that isn"t near as bad as a frost my company met with up in the northwest a few weeks ago. The play was a good one. too. and had been fair ly well billed in the town. Eigh't o'clock came and our manager peeped through tlie curtain to see how things loomed up. "One solitary man had been seated in the parquet. He sat there content edly munching peanuts. " "It's too early wet,' remarked the manager. "We'll wait awhile.' "At S::!( the manager again peeped through tin- curtain. "The one man was there still in all his solitary grandeur. Ho did not ap pear to be -cither impatient or wor ried. "Another half hour passed by. Still the lone man remained in ihe parquet. 'Finally, tlie manager stepped for ward on tlie stage. " "My friend." he said to the lone in dividual. '1 have 110 douPt. you're a most estimable citizen and a splendid gentleman in every particular, and as such you arc doubtless a remarkable success; as an audience, however, you are 11 lamentabl failure.' " "And then what?" '"The orchestra tuned up." Topeka Capitol. A RUSH THAT BROKE A LEO. ' One thousand girls broke a leg in fi scramble for turkey yesterday 'in the looms of 11 10 Noonday Rest. The leg was wooden, and when it cracked it sent, a table loaded with erauberry sauce and mince pies to the floor. ' The Klio association was giving its annual Tkai'.ksgi vi-ng dinner to the young women of the Noonday Rest and the patll from the dining, room door to the entrance 01 tlie lirst: Hoor wai formed of t pushing.- hungry, nervous crowd. It was 011 one of their mad rushes that several dozen girls bore down upon n table and doubled up one of its legs." The '"Host" mem bers all. business women, -by the way had one hour in wlii'-h to eat. That Is why they wanted to break furni ture or other barriers between them and the feast. "Don't crowd; be patient!" cried Mr? Katl'ei-ine Wesffall. tlie president of the Klio association, as she waved her hands In front of her. "There's lots of tnrkev left.". This cry. "There's lots left.'" was carried along the line and rpient"ri until the hit of the Noon days clutched ,1 drumstick and said she cnessed sho wasn't hungry. The early diners went to the piano when thev Kid finished their pie and played marches within hearing dis tance of the r-ti-ts ,who weren't able to budge a step farther. Chicago Record. .

A great many otherwise careful per sons fail to realize the danger iu health they run by wearing clothes not sulli ciently aired or by sleeping between damp sheets. Clothing and shoots im properly aired are responsible for far more illness than is generally sup posed, says the American t)ueen. Every housewife should personally at tend to the airing of tlie'fainily wash after it is brought from the laundry, for it seems an imp s-il le task to make servants understand that the airing of linens and clothing is not to be ac complished by simply hanging them 011 a. clothes-horse near a fire. Unless each article is unfolded and its -position changed from time to time until all possible moisture is drawn out, the process of ailing is not affected and a delicate person runs great risk of tak ing cold if such clothing be worn or if she sleep between sheets imperfect ly aired. Besides, nothing is so dis agreeable and uncomfortable as cold, damp sheets. When away from homo, especially when stopping at hotels, the possibili tv of being compelled 1o "sloop between damn sheets should be carefully avoid ed. Test the sheets by placing a hand glass between them for a few mo ments. If. 011 removing it. the faintest trace of damp film is noticed upon the glass, the sheets are not lit to sleep be tween, and if if is not possible to change them, better remove them alto gether and sleep between the blankets than to run Hie risk of a severe cold or of an attack of rheumatism or grip.
