When the street work now! under contract in Cairc is under fflll bead way this summer half a dozen com petent inspectors will be needed. This does not mean that the contractors arc dishonest or . incompetent; . but it vs. jnerely a condition . which . the people who pay for the work have a right to Insist upon as a matter of busines?; and which the contractors also ought to insist upon. There will be work in progress at dozen different points in; the city, and it ought all to be watch ed carefully by some one representing the people. City Engineer Thistle wood is not able to be in more than one place at a time. Tbe underground work especially needs to be carefuJly looked after, for it will be hidden fio-n view after it is finished. At a retvul meeting of the Board of Local Im vements Judge' Lansden. laid stress upon this, and that it is worthy of con. federation by Uie city council has been demonstrated. The sensation of the day H O at a Cairo jury ban returned' a vendict of "guilty" in a murder case, fixing the punisnmeni &i ieatn. it is not a pleasant sensation, more part'ecbry since the verdict is rendered in a caae wherein the. circmi.stancea of the rrlme, although wrv bad. are not much worse than they were in some other cass wherin verdic's ft acquittal were rendered. In his ad dress to the grand Jury at the beniu ning of last week Judge Butler spoke of the habit of carrying pit tols as a prolific cause of homicide and he waft right; but undoubtedly, one of thv l Strongest Influences toward .homicide lis to be found in the ease with which aen guilty of taking human life es rape th law's penalties.

The court of civil apiK-aH of Texas held that, although the clerk committed an offense, the marriage was valid.

BAM'L 'WW ITE 1 ilotibt if tliere is any lesson more essential to tench in an industrial democracy like ours than the lesson that any failure to train the average citi zen to n belief in the things of the spirit no less than the things of tin body must in the long run entail misfortune, short"niing, and possible disaster upon the nation itself. It is eminently right tliaf we, ns Americans, should be proud of our material prosper ity; and it is also eminently right that we should pride ourselves upon our widely diffused and exceed ingly practical system of education. I believe in both, but neither will avail if something else is not added to the nation. The material tprosperiiy is essential as a foundation, but it is only a foundation, and upon it must be built the superstructure of ihe higher moral and spiritual life, for otherwise in itself the material prosperity will amount to but little. So with our edueniion. It is necessary that we should see that the children are trained not merely in reading and writ ing; not merely in the elementary branche of learning strictly so doll nod ; nit trained industrially; trained ddeipiiiMv to meet the ever-increasing demands of the complex growth of our industrialism; trained agricul turally, trained in handicrafts, trained in headcrafts, trained to be more efficient workers in every tield of human activity. But they must be trained in more than that or the nation will ultimately go down. They must be f rained in tbe elementary branches of righteousness; they must bo trained so that it shall come naturally to them to abhor that which is evil, or we never Mmll see our democracy take the place which it must and r-hall take among the nations of the earth. 1 do not believe in teaching what can not be practiced. T do not want ever to hear a man say we are to pay no regard to the things of the bodv in life as it is to-day. On the contrary would tell every young man that it is his first duty to pull his own weight: to take care of himself, and take care of those dependent uioii him. He can not do anything for others until ho has first made it certain that he will not bea Jnmlon upon oth ers. I want to see a man able to earn his own livelihood. I want to sec the woman able to do her part as housewife and mother. But all mv plea is that the men shall not be content with merely that; that the man shall realize that after a certain point has been reached the increment of his fortune, the increment of his material well-lieing, amounts to but very little compared to the result of effort spent in other directions.

The Mystery of Telepathy By AUGUSTUS THOMAS, PUrrri(hl, Author ol tbt "Witch lot Mim..." The present considerable interest in telepathy and the rapidly increasing in terest in it may make acceptable nt the present time a simple explanation of the action of so-called telepathic force, and one according to the most plausible theories thus far advanced. Tbe vibratory wave theory, I believe, in the scientific explanation of the transmis sion of litdit and of heat and of electricity. ly analogy it would be the logical expla nation of the transmission of the force that is operative in telepathic action. The " most tenable theory, then, would seem to be, and the theory most accepted by those devoting some attention to the subject is, that a strong desire in one tujnd sets up in. the ether a vi bratory nioiion that is transmitted to other minds, and 'induces in those other minds a like mental slate. These mental waves may be transmitted in a simple radiation as waves are transmitted from a central disturbance in water, or thev may be direct, as currents sometimes are, in particular directions through larger kwlies of water which contain the currents. This general radiating action, these particular directed actions of mind-waves and currents, according to the theory I am discussing, arc set in motion both uneonsoiou-lv and consciously. The strong desire of every individual generates them, as a rule, unconsciously. There are many per sons, and an increasing number of them, who believe that they generate such liienfal currents by their desires, and who purposely cultivate strong desires with this intent. It is the theory, and it is the belief of these persons, ilmt a mind in a negative condition that is to say, a mind not possessed by any dominating desire cither good or bad is susceptible to these mental currents generated by other minds, but that a mind domi nated hv its own desire and purpose resists these outside influences.

I doubt if you clearly comphchend the workings of the English government, and I am sure the English do not understand your system quite as you do yourselves. The forms of government do not, after all, make a3 much itiffenuice as we have supposed. Eng land, preserving the forms of .monarchy, is us' democratic as America. The genius of a people' may be. trusted to find its own ways to express itself, in this affair of gov ernmental organization. . 1 do not regard it as fair for a citizen of one country to criticise the particular form in which tin- government of another country is organized, so long as that particular form seem able 10 serve its purpose without injury to the rest of the world. I mean to sav that, if there are evils in our government wlu'ch result in harm outride of our country, then they should be criticised from out side. Hut otherwise, the criticism should come from within. If the pres ent form of our government does not suit the Japanese, depend upon it they will get one that does guit them. As a matter of fact, the present is considered to suit the present need. Constitutions grow, thev are not made in a moment. Your own is recasting itself and reinterpreting itself anew con stantly and progressively; why deny it? The Japan ese constitution is granted by the emperor, and all his lrtval subject confidently rely upon his wisdom to propose nnv changes mi-essiry to adapt it to the needs of the time of course, with the consmt of the im perial disl.
