You can't get a ,2orse. No farmer would stir out on a ;day like, this." "What is running?" asked a repor ter. In despair. i "Only the automobiles," was the re- iy.

SHE SENT ALL THE NEWS J ohn's Wife Tells Him In a Few Words What an Interesting Time She ; . Was Having. Knowing the aversion of her husband to letter writing, the wife of a Chicago an thus admonished him on his de parture on a recent eastern trip: "Now, John, as nejther I nor the chil dren can accompany you, you must be eyes and ears for us, and drop us an oc casional postal card, telling us any thing of interest you may see and hear. Don't forget, will you?" As husbands, do, says the Chicago Tribune, the husband promised, and 'took his departure. The next morning GRANDEUR OF SPAIN S02CB OF THE OLD RACIAL VIGOR STILL EXISTS.

Yours aff." ' Though disappointed, she excused the brevity 'of the communication on the ground that her husband was doubt less pressed for time. Two days later, however, another card arrived, bearing the startling announcement: "Here I am in New York. Yours ever." Still later came andther: "I am indeed in New York. Yours " The wife swallowed her disappoint ment, and, being good at retaliation, seized her pen and wrote: "Dear hus band, the children and I are in Chicago. Yours" ' - .'..'. A' few days later she wrote "We are still in Chicago." . In her next communication she grew a little more enthr.sias.tic. She. wrote: :"Dear Husband: Here we are in Chi cago. I repeat it, sir. We are in Chi cago. ; "P. S.-We are, indeed." ' '.' V: In due time John reached home, arlfl fearing perhaps that his poor wife was afflicted -.with some sort of dementia, hastened to ask the meaning of her strange messages. For answer she slipped, into his hand his own three pos tal cards. ' ' 1 ; - "What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander." she said. , -- It is to be 'hoped that John profited by the lesson.

The nation that once held such proud place in the world's history still has alive within her some of the old racial vigor. In the bitter feeling engendered by the war" between Spain and the United States, Ameri cans 'generally 'seem to have lost sight of .the, debt, the American continent owes to the former country, many seem to have forgotten utterly , the glory that was Spain's, the grandeur that was hers. Spain,' to-day a minor European pow er, was once a splendid world-wide em pire. In Mr. Fernald's "The Spaniard In History," we have given usin brief the various periods of Spain's history; rise of the Spanish monarchy; the-In-quisition; the conquest of Granada; expulsion of the Jews and Moors; the Spanish in the West' Indies; the Spaniard in Mexico and Peru; the Spaniard in the Netherlands; the Spaniard on the throne; the Spaniard in the Netherlands; the Spaniard on the sea. ' . Which resume surely , sug gests wide conquests, great power. Spain's rich natural resources were known and made use of before ' the time of Christ, Phenician traders and colonists being especially attracted by the mineral riches of ""Tarshish." The Greek's, Carthaginians, and." Romans later made settlements, and in 206 B. C. the : country, 'under the name-His-panio, became a Roman province. The fertile land was .iooked upon as the granary of Rbme, and for 300 years was Rome's richest province. To-day there are still standing most interesting ruins of the bridges, aqueducts and amphitheatres constructed during this period. ' ; 'V1 The Visigoths supplanted the Ro man culture, but they themselves were supplanted ' by Mohammedan, Arabs, under whom the kingdom enjoyed a high measure of prosperity. . The Arabs made of their new possession a treasure house; prlnceiy cities arose, the land was skilfully cultivated, arts and , manufactures fostered.

The woman admitted that it was about three months ago; she had lost track of the exact date. y . She didn't like to wash in . cold water when the thermometer registered below zero. j "The sentence of the court will be that -you be provided with a warm cell for 20 days, a scrub brush and a cake of soap," Bald the judge, "and . further that the Jailer see to it that you take a bath once a day." Is Beginning Life Anew. K remarkable case is that of Mrs. Rosa Perkins, of Huntington, Mass. Her age is eighty-five, and she has been almost totally blind for several years. Within the past three months she has regained her sight, and is now able to read without glasses. Her hair which had been gray , and had fallen out to such an extent as to leave her almost bald, has taken a fresh start, and her head is now covered with a luxuriant growth of glossy black. Vietor EmniKnacI and Kaiirr. ROME, March 21. King Victor Em manuel has ordered the royal yacht to be sent to Naples on March 26 for his meeting with Emperor William of Ger many, who will , remain there four days.

' "-, ' The reign of that romantic couple, Ferdinand and Isabella, was a reign In which history was made ; among other great events two stand out con spicuously the conquest of the Moors, and the discovery of America, Though the conquest of the Moors added great ly to martial glory, though the Span iards in this war learned that dis cipline that was to malte their army the mighty military force of Europe, "all the centuries have not restored to Spain what her own sovereigns (in Ferdinand's policy of reducing the Arab civilization to total desolation), in the ,ten years war against Granada, destroyed." The second event, the discovery of the New World, was the greatest achievement of the 15th cen tury. ' - At that time Spain was high in power, commanded both the' Mediter ranean and the Atlantic, her provinces were united, her armies victorious. The tales of the riches of the lands discovered by Columbus filled the Spanish adventurers with impetuous seal, Spanish exploration and coloni zation . went on with surprising im petuousity. The West Indies, Mexico and Peru, were invaded and their fab ulous wealth seized upon by the avid seekers of fortune and glory. We Americans know the rest of the story, and should yield due reverence to the enterprise and intrepidity of those early Spanish path-finders, if we can not give unstinted admiration to their methods as a whole.

BEARS KILL THE CATTLE Their Ravages in the Ranches of Alas ka Are Most Destructive A Plea for Help. From far Alaska comes a Macedonia! cry for help to put a stop to the ravage! of the big bears in that peninsula. Sen ator Foster, of Washington, has re ceived the plea and in mentioning it soyi that if President Roosevelt wants a glorious hunt for bruin he can tell whet the great game is plentiful. The Alaska variety of bear is said to weigh from 1,500 to 1,800 pounds. A recent letter in Mr. Foster's mail from Seattle tells the story. "Wc shipped 300 . head of cattle and 9.10C breeding ewes to Kodiac, Alaska, last spring," writes a firm of packers from that city. "The bears have been getting Into the bunch and have killed 503 up tc date. During the mixup about 12 bears were slain. About 30 days ago two beare got into, the sheep and after killing 21 sheep and tearing the coat oft one man the bears were killed. The United States marshal, on hearing of this, hatf all our men arrested for killing the bears. Five of our men were compelled to stand trial at considerable expense to us. "The bears are very numerous on th island," concludes this letter, "and since they have tasted sheep ; the. sheep ar badly scared and are continually pityn? up. Unless something is done with tn bears they will put us out of business." Senator Foster is puzzled as to just how he can help his constituents in theit plight. . They assert that "a bounty ol at least $5 a head should be placed on bears for. a year or two in order to clean them out." . , captor of John "Willren Booth Dead. ROCHESTER. N. Y.. March 21.
