If the nation sees fit to make Mr
Roosevelt president by election, It will
be condoning much and risking much,
says one writer. It will put the pow
er of ;the presidency, the .greatest
executive authority that exists in any
English speaking country, into the
hands of a man whose orbit of move
ment defies calculation and whose
mental processes no man can foresee.
It will affix its approval to the Philip
pine and the Panama policies, with all
the political and moral deductions
which they offer for the future rulers
of the country.
Speaking of the Husso-Japanese war,
one writer says that the fact of the
Russian commander being able to hold
the Japanese in check up to the pres
ent is in itself a sort of victory. Japan
had been making careful preparation
for an armed combat; whilst Russia up
to the last moment believed the differ
ences between the two countries could
be settled by diplomacy. This explains
Japan's success in the early stages of
the war. When the end of the rainy
season permits the resumption of hos
tilities the Japanese will find them
selves confronted by a different set of
conditions. V

the more desperate "anarchists and

aeaa line was marked with chalk
across, the eastern end of the room and
orders were given to the guard that if
any man dared step across this line to
shoot him down at once, writes an ex
change. Communication with the out
side world was prohibited. One man
was seen smiling at some one outside
across the street. A dozen soldiers at
once charged to where this outsider
stood, dragged him by the feet Into the
hall and threw him in amonsr the other
prisoners, charging him with using

communication. Several times Krag

HEARD IN PASSING
In order to illustrate the practical
utility of "glass or crystal cloth," the
exhibitors at the world's fair at St
Louis have erected a stage with foot
lights on wihlch everything is of this
inimitable fabric. The floor is covered
with glass carpeting, which is not in
jured by use. The domed ceiling land
walls are decorated with white glass
cloth, tucked and studded at regular
intervals with rosettes of every color
which look like so many bright-hued
flowers growing from out of a bed of
the purest white. The very furniture
is upholstered with glass in different
colors, while American flags in realis
tic colorings are set at each end. The
picture ls completed toy a group con
sisting of six figures, a 'bride and her
attendant, bridesmaids, all robed In

trating the latest fashions.

Throughout the whole of the busi
ness of platform making in connec
tion with the republican convention
which nominated Roosevelt and Fair
banks, no republican either in con
gress or in executive office has shown
the smallest amount of statesmanship.
Not one has proved that he can rise
above a merely partisan point of view
and labor for a solution which will
bring us social peace, by insuring the
contentment of the two races and the
effective establishment of the rights
of both, says a New York writer.
Not one of them seems to have even
looked around for such a solution,and
the inaction hitherto pursued would
better have been maintained than
adopt a futile and Justly suspected
resolution such as was put In the re
publican platform. The most Inno
cent gense that has been put upon it
leaves it dishonest It is that the
convention felt the need of doing
something to maintain its hold upon
the negro vote in the north, and there
fore threw over the people who favor
a white republican party in the south,
thus driving all the southern people of
white skin to unite against "negro
domination." -
v It matters little whether our rifle
men win the Palma trophy from the
English marksmen, land then return
the same emblem because of a cry
from abroad about gun barrels or
some such trifling technicality, or

endeavor to "lift the cup." Haverford

These annual pumeys of the Penn

feature of the cricket season abrotad,
and by the consistently high class per
formances of the pilgrims much mis
sionary work is done each year to put
on n still firmer basis the Anglo
American alliance in the field of
sports, at least. Haverford's 1904 in
vasion opened auspiciously at Rugby,
June 21, when, on the first day, a
draw was recorded, largely through
the splendid batting of the visiting
Americans. Both sides scored well
in this opening match, H. H. Morris,
of the Haverford team, doing partic
ularly well at the wicket.

Secretary of the Treasury Gives Sensi
ible Advice to Travelers.
Americans who go abroad will be
glad to know at last what they have
a right to bring home with them with
out being pestered to death by cus
toms officers. Secretary Shaw, who
has brought an unusual amount of
common sense with him to the treas
ury department, has issued a circular
advising trans-Atlantic travelers,
when they return from Europe, to put
all dutiable articles near the tops of
their trunks, and to bring original re
ceipted bills for "articles necessary
and decorative purchased abroad," so
as to save customs officials and trav
elers both a good deal of trouble. Mr
Shaw announces also, in accordance
with the recent decision of the circuit
court of appeals, that each passenger
may bring into the country for him
self or any other person articles pur
chased abroad up to the amount of
$100, provided they are not for sale.
This includes, however, only 50 cigars
and 300 cigarettes. The senior mem
ber of a family may include all the
members thereof in his declaration.
And now ifi a little common sense
could be infused into the conduct of
the customs department, so that
there could be an exercise of fair dis
crimination and judgment in accept
ing the word of decent and respect
able travelers, much of the outcry
against a protective tariff, which orlg.
inates on the steamship docks of New
York city, would be heard no more.

FROM "IN MEMORIAM
By Lord Tennyson

31
IT Is believed by many that Lord Tennyson referred,
in the first stanza given below, to the poem "The
Ladder of St. Augustine," by Longfellow, wherein the
same thought occurs. But the late poet laureate has
left It on record that he "who sings to one clear harp
in divers tones" is the German poet and philosopher
Goethe. "It is Goethe's whole creed," eaid Tennyson.
The whole splendid poem "In Memoriam" is a tribute
to Arthur Henry Hallara, friend of Lord Tennyson, who
died in 1833 at the age of twenty-two.
I
HELD it truth, with him who sings
To one clear harp in divers tones,
That men may rise on stepping-stones
Of their dead selves to higher things.
I sometimes hold it half a sin
To put in words the grief I feel;
For words, like Nature, half reveal
And half conceal the Soul within.
But, for the unquiet heart and brain,
A use in meavured language lies;
The sad mechanic exercise,
Like dull narcotics, numbing pain.
In words like weeds I'll wrap me o'er,
Like coarsest clothes against the cold:
But that large grief which these enfold
Is given in outline and no more.
I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.

How Most People
Marry
By Mrs. FRANK LESLIE
HIKK how men and women reply to the query as to
which member of the opposite sex is the one best
adapted for a lifelong companionship, this being, as
we all know, one of the MOST IMPORTANT of
nature's conundrums. Every one of us at some period
has had it propounded, and probably every one of us
has decided it in a manner differing , from what we
should have selected had we better UNDERSTOOD the matter.
A man sees a woman at some social gathering; it matters not if
it is at the reception of a duchess or a queen of society in our own
country or if it is at a "sociable" or a dance in some little country
town, Nature is pre-eminently no respecter of persons and works in
the one case PRECISELY as she does m the other. The girl is
well dressed, gay, smiling and evidently pleased with the young man's
attentions. They pass an hour together and part with mufcaal good
will. A dozen or so of such interviews, a few calls at the family
dwelling, a ride, a drive, a walk or two, and he is prepared to Offer
himself AND SHE TO ACCEPT HIM. If any one having the
right demands of him the raison d'etre of the solid foundation of his
selection and consequent engagement he replies that it is all right;
that he understands Fanny thoroughly and is quite sure she will make
him happy. As to whether HE is quite sure to make HER happy,
it is usually the last thing he thinks about. "What sort of a girl is
she ?" asks the mother of the happy youth, recalling the mistake she
made in guessing life's conundrum.
"Oh, she's a jolly girl, as jolly a girl as ever you saw," replies the
wise young man judicially. "She is as light hearted as a bird, al
ways full of fun and laughter, always ready for anything proposed
in the way of amusement, good natured and obliging, great taste in
dress and as neat as a pin in fact, SHE IS JUST THE KIND
OE GIRL I LIKE AND CAN GET ON WITH. I hate these
prim, mopish, proper sort of girls who are always getting tired and
faint and frightened at everything from a spider to a cow and mustn't
get their feet wet, and all that."
So they marry, and he finds that he knew as little about his wife
as she did about him. The high spirits and constant cheerful alacrity
in matters of amusement were THE GIFTS OF YOUTH AND
HEALTH and shade with beautiful ease into peevishness, discon
tent and a restless desire for new amusements and distractions. The
constant attentions of the suitor give place to the INDIFFERENCE
of the husband, and the disappointed wife utters complaints long and
loud that he is by no means the devoted slave she was led to believe
him. He" retorts that if she were as cheerful and amiable, as well
dressed and trim, as he once had known her he should be as much
m love IT IS HE who is disappointed and has a right to com
plain, etc.

MAXIMITB SAFE ENOUGH.
But It Is Almost 50 Per Cent More
Efficient Thau Dynamite.
Mr Maxim will show you one of his
important inventions, his powerful,
shell exploder known as maximite,
which in explosive force is about 50
per cent more efficient than dynamite,
and somewhat more powerful than
pure nitroglycerine.
This maximite has lately been
adopted by our government as a
bursting charge for projectiles and
shells, and it is equaled in shattering
force by only two other known sub
stances. In spite of its 'high explosive quality
it is a very safe compound to handle,
and is practicallv unaffected by shock,
and will not explode by being set on
Are even if a mass of it is stirred
with white-hot iron. It will burn
with a bright green flame, and can be
ignited with a match.
All this Mr Maxim demonstrated bf
lighting a piece of smokeless powder
and dropping it in a dish containing
some lumps of maximite. He also
melted lead and poured it over dry
lumps of maximite, and, while it
burned freely, like sulphur or wax, it
did not explode.
In appearance maximite somewhat
resembles sulphur, being yellow in col
or and quite hard. It is easily melted,
in which condition it flows like molas
ses and is poured into steel projectiles
