According to, the recommendations of the army uniform board, which have received the approval of the president, a new uniform has been adopted for the : use of the United States .troops, the change to take place January 1. Hereafter the prevailing color will be what is described as an "olive-drab" instead of the blue which has formerly been the distinctive color of the unl forms .worn" by the: United States sol diers. Another radical change will be the wearing of the Insignia of rank on the arm instead of on the shoulder, as heretofore. Trousers are to be re placed by breeches for , officers and men, whether mounted or foot,' al- . . though trousers may be worn in bar racks. ' Leggins are, of course, pre scribed, the dress leggins to be of buff leather and the service leggins of can vas of a similar shade. A new pat tern of sabre, which will have a great er, curvature of blde than the sword now in use, has been adopted. Developments during the week have been of favorable nature says Henry Clews, the banker, particularly regard ing the- strike and crop situations. which have been the chief uncertain ties for some time past. Apprehensions concerning the labor outlook have been fortunately relieved by the collapse of the freight handlers' strike at Chicago, and by the wise decision of the coal miners not to order, a general strike. In consequence of these developments the market showed a inbre hopeful tone and signs of increasing activity. More now depends upon the harvests than upon any other single element. The outlook in this respect continues encouraging. Corn," the pivotal crop this year, promises well; and, if condi tins continue favorable, we may have a bumper crop, the" acreage being the largest on record and condition above the average. Another ' crop failure would certainly have precipitated a rpsifttrtn not mwclv In the stock mar ket, whare it would be most distaste-: Jul, but in general .business and ii "dustry, where xpapsionthas been, go Ing afoh ajt; a tnarvelons rate ftebidV serves ' to reduce the possibilities of such disaster and warrants a. corresponding-growth; of confidence. In Uncle. Sam's treasury gold Is now accumulated to the snug sum of $uGK 391,603. Tfiis.is more than half the cold supply in the country. It Is, in all probability,, the- largest amount of gold ever stored away in the history of the world. A statistician declares that is more by a hundred millions than. all the gold in . the British I Isles, is nearly as ' much as all the , gold n 'ranee, and about three-quarters of the "amount in Germany. What this gold might do , may be thus summar ized: Give every man, woman'' and child in the United States $7.30. Hart ford Post. ... What .it might do and' what it do as is different. There are a whole lot of people in every comrnYmity that would be greatly benefited if they were given their share of the gold. It would help pay the rent and clothe the, children. If one man we heard of recently had it he would not have, had to walk twenty three miles between ,midnight and morning, after a tour throngh . several towns looking for 'work. This ' man had a good Job at a fair salary, but because he refused to sign a disagree able agreement he was turned adrift, and in the meantime his family is in want. Oh, yes, this is a great country with all its gold stored up, but It will be greater when it can devise a way to prevent one man from starving while his neighbor is throwing , what would satisfy his hunger to his'honnd3 and poodles. The old saying, there is always room at the top, the negroes of the south are beginning to find out means that there is room for the colored race, too, if the methods offered are only taken advan tage of. North Carolina's wealthiest negro has just become the owner of his own cotton mill. . "It is located, as its founder, Mr Coleman, planned, in his home town of Concord,-cost in. the neighborhood of $70,000, and has a weaving capacity of 40,000 yards of cloth a week. An. extremely com petent observer of Industrial conditions at the south says that the mill has been In operation since last July, and upon his recent visit to it the superin tendent, a Massachusetts manager, told him that the negroes were proving satisfactory hands. He was especially struck with the alertness of the negro, as .lie recalled the opinion, formerly ac cepted at the south, that negroes could never be worked in a factory for the reason that the hum of the machinery would put them to sleep. The superin tendent at the Coleman mill told him that several of the operatives had been en nght 'napping,' but that such occur-, reuces were not uncommon among white 1 operatives ; in Massachusetts. The negro operatives, furthermore, had been prompt in coming to work, and had shown no disposition to 'drop out.' The superintendent is the only white man employed, and he lias,' of course, had to train all the "hands, as southern negroes have hitherto been practically shut out from this industry." Editor W. J. Bryan in the Commoner asks: "If the party (although it polled a million more votes than ever before) could not win when 10 per cent of the members of the party were dissatisfied how can it hope, to win when $0 per cent of the members are dissatisfied? Harmony on the terms proposed, and no better terms will be proposed, means not only the abandonment of principle for the promise of success, but it means a failure to secure suc cessthe trading of a birthright for a mess 'of pottage without getting the pottage. The 'anything-tb-win' policy is an Insult to those who have con victions and it ought to be offensive even to those who have no convictions if they have political jurgm'ent." ' If Mr Bryan could be sure that SO per cent of those who voted the dem ocratic ticket in the last presidential election would stick, ' the prospects for success would not be so bad. Cleve land and Hill with their 10 per cent would not cut much of a figure. And there would be a likelihood of , being able to make up the 10 per cent out of the ranks of the republican party. Many people cannot agree with Editor Bryan on this point, however, and are of the opinion ;that the row between Bryan, Cleveland and IIi?l will split the party, and that It will suffer worse than ever before. A get-to gether policy : should be the cry at present, and as 1904 is about two years away there is plenty of time to bury the hatchet and cuddle up to some democratic' candidate that will carry the election. There has been too inucn mud slinging already. heard isr passrso President Diaz of Mexico has invited Miss Clara Barton to come to Mexico and organize a branch of the Red Cross society In his country. . It is stated that the House of . the Seven Gables, made famous by Haw thorne, has been fitted with eiectna lights, a furnace and modern plumbing. Naught can stay. the march of progress. The attitude of the press towards- the coal mine operators seems . to imply that they are working under a profit-sharing-law. 1 As there' is no such law it is interesting to inquire vhat prompts intelligent editors to take this position. . v ' A ' - .

A man representing himself to be Jimmie Rowe. former trainer for James R. Keene, tricked Dr Herman E. S. Chayes, a fashionable dentist of 22 East Thirty-first street, out of $100 yesterday, afternoon. Shortly past noon yesterday a tall, well dressed man w"ith brown inus tache and blue eyes and gold filled teeth, entered Dr Chayes's office, say ing that he had been sent there by a well known patient of the dentist. He wanted a little work done, but after Dr Chayes had looked at his teeth the visitor said that It would take too long just then, and that he would have to come again. As he went out of the door he stopped suddenly, as if an idea had occurred to him, and said: "ny me way. doctor, do you ever play the races?' , "Don't know enough about them," replied the Vloctor. "well, of course you know I'm Jim mie Rowe, who. is with James R. Keene, and I happen to have- a good thing if you care for it." Psever having played "good th'ngs" before, Dr Chayes wanted to try his hand, and said as much. "It's this i way." said . the v. visitor. "Keene cabled me fo-day in his cod'j to play M'amselle. and I expect to do it The tip. of course, is quite private. Here's Keene's cable code if you care to' see it. Now, If you've got nnv money, to risk on a sure winner I'll play it for you and leave the winnings at Canneld's place at 5 East Forty-sec ond street." " ' ' Ti f.Vift rcxa rtr 1ia n'flfl :li-1rf ?rv pressed with the proposal and placed in his hands a, check for $20. which amount was to be placed on M'amselle to win. On second thoughts he de cided to Hk $100. and accordingly he wrote another check for $80. both being alldressed to the Knickerbocker Trust Co at Twenty-seventh street and Fifth avenue. It was not until after his visitor had left that the possibility that he might havp ben the victim of a swindle en tered the dentist's mind. Hp hnrriod to the bank, but found that both"check had been cashed. When he reported tne matter to he ponce he, was In- formpd that the real Jiramle Rowe was nhvsically tliA onrmsite in apnearance to thp mnn who had called upon him.

In general statisticians' have to com plain of the unequal increase In the number of female children as com pared with that of males. It is Inter esting, therefore,, to note that Berlin, the capital of , the military monarchy of Prussia, has always broken the record in this respect, so that Kaiser Wilheim need not fear that the ranks of his legions will be thinned. Last yar 52, 245 children were born in Berlin. Of tliese 27,077 were boys and 25,1(58 were girlsshowing an increase to the credit of the male population of 1,909. Ber lin, for some reason or another, soeras to have the privilege of turning out more boys into, the -world than girls, for. taking the numbers from 1S91 to 1900, we find there was an average an nual Increase in the male progeny of the city during the ten years of 1.3G1 over the female in other words, out of every 1.000 Infants born, 513 were boys and 487 gli'ls. The year 1820 was the, record year last century, when 525 boys were born out of 1,000 babies. London Telegraph. Bears tte" ' Tha Kind You Have Always Bgu$!
