Vital ques tions can not be killed or burled, nnd wb wero doallng with vital questions whon the call lo srius resounded through tno land. Taking up the subject of Imperialism, Mr. Ilrynn said the president has mis Interpreted the sentiment of the peo plo. They nre opposed giving the Phil ippines back to Spain, but they have not ns yet declared lu favor of em barking upon n colonial polloy. So great n change, ho said, could not bo undortalten without more Investiga tion and deliberation thin tho peoplo hnd yet given to the subject. Tho prin cipal part of Mr. Ilrynn's speech was dovntod to tho Philippine question. In this connection he referred to PrtMldent McJCInley's Inquiry, "Who will haul down the flag?" nnd replied- "The Hag is n national emblem nnd Is obedient to the national will. It was made for the people, not the peo ple for the Hag. When the people want the flue raised they rnlee It; when thoy want It hunted down the haul It down. The flag was raised upon Canadian soil during the war of 1312 nnd It wns hauled down when peace was restored. Tho flag was placed upon Chnptilte pao during the war with Mexico and It was hauled down when tho war was over. Tho moriilng paper announce that I.ne ordorcd tho ling hauled down In Cuba yoeterdny because It waa raised too aoou.

Few people, soys n writer la Pvar son'a Loudon Weekly, nro nware of tteo origin of the uuiglo American, ward "cocktail," the me.ro utterance ot which Is sufficient to bring a look ot happi ness to tho features ot any well condi tioned Amerlean citizen. The word eome from Mexico, whero pulque, a kind of liquor obtained from the cac tus, Is tho national tipple. The Aztoo word for pulque Is pronounced "octel." and the American nrmy which, under Uen. Soott. Invaded Mexico some fifty years ago, corrupted the word Into "cocktail," mid carried It back to tho United Stales. There Is a tradition that pulque was discovered by one ot Montezuma's no ble, who sent It to the emperor by the band of his daughter Oriel. The mansrch touted the liquor, looked at the maiden, smiled, and thereupon gulped It down. It not only tickled his palMc, but touched his heart, and K la reported thai he married the girl From that day to this the Mexicans have kept themselves well supplied with pulque, and when drinking to gether Invariably look nnd smile at ono another before swallowing. Yankee, the writer tells his ling llsh readers, have adopted a similar custom when Imbibing their whisky, and frequently, when desirous ot In viting n friend to take a drink, ask blra to tako a "snillo." There are few things Impossible In themselves, and the application nec essary to make them sueeeed Is wore often wanting than the meaus.
