If the Bize uf the delegation and the eminence and varied acconiplishments of the individual delegates themselves bo a fair test, then, measured by the men they send to the eecond international Peace Conference, which assembles at the Dutch capital on the 15th of this month, the eovernment of the United States and the American people are more interested in universal peace and more desirous for its realization than any other governnienf, or people on carth. We send to the great international coun cil two statesmen of ambassadorial rank, one for many years the recognized tra ditional head of the American bar, the other a statesman who witheminentsuc- cess and delicacy represented us at Paris during the trying times of the Spanisli war. We also send an accomplished Bcholar-author-diplomat, a scholarly lawyer, a scientific, highly cultured sol- dier and sailor, and several expert nttacheB unusually well versed in not only the theory but the practice of inter national law. The main facts in the ca reers of these gentlemen will quicken the pride of every American citizen, particu larly of those who have in the past so often, and only too justly, been called upon to explain or apologize for the men sent abroad to represent the American people. American Monthly Review of Reviews for June. Magnanimity Unoaralleled. The nation ought to be proud of the President for his intention torecommend to Congress that China be released from the payment of about half of the indem- nity fund on account of the Boxer out rages of 1900. The Chinese are not want ed here. Their habits and mode of life are too different from ours to make them desirable as fellow citizens. Neverthe' less, we should deal justly with them, and even generously. The announce inent that the President thinks the idem' nity should be reduced from $24,440,779 to $11,655,483 will doubtless be given ef fect by Congiess and a bright record will be added to our relatlons -with foreign peoples. There never has been any dispute that the sum of the indemnity as originally fixed was too large. That amount was fixed at the time when the other powers that participated in theinvasionof China obtained their allowances. At that timo overy pereon and nation, except.ours, in position to do so considered it the proper thing to loot China. Individuals able to do so acted disgracefully in carrying ofl costly and precious objects and the European nations inslsted on enormous payments. The United States accepted the award as it was made to it and has since been computing the difference be tween that sum and the actual cost of its participation in the work of suppressing the Boxers. Even when the negotiations were in progress our representatives en- deavored to keep down the sum total of the inderanities. They were not very successful. Now that we propose to waive about half the allowance other powere will have a fine opportunity to do the same. Whether'they do it or not they will have our example before them an example of magnanimity unparal leled. The rule is for nations and men to take all they can get and give up noth ing. The young nation of the far west will show a different rule to the old na tion of the far east. Troy Budget. Decllne in the Native-born, It is a startling fact which we learn from the census, that children under ten years of age cotnprised one-third of our population at the beginning of the nine teenth century, and that at the endof the century they comprised less than one fourth of the population. Balancing all the facts within our knowledge, we are compelled to admit a persistent decline in the birth-rate since 1860, and this de cllne, while dlfficult to muasure from census to census, is increasingly traceable in the luter decades. Big families were the rule a hundred years ago, Tc-day, among the descend ants of those same big families, they are the exception. And the striking fact is, that the big family is not only exception nl in the city, where its absence can be explained by the existence of certain ar tiflcial conilitions; it is disappearing in the rural districts also, and among the farmers. Having my mind somewhat fixed on this Bubject, I made it a point during a recent vacation in a certain New England state to make systematic inquiry regard ing the size of the families within a radi us of about twenty miles from the point of my flojourn. The largest family Idis covered in all that area, which included half a dozen good-sized villages, conslst ed of e!x children and two parents. The averago size of the family in the region was five, and there were about an equal number of chlldlef b families, and fami lies with but one cbild. Yet it appears that there are three children in the country, to a given popu lation, wherg there are but two in a city. Sp the municlpal environment is only one of many subtle cuuses at work to de crease what may be called the normal rate of increase in our population. We know that what President Roosoveltcalls 'race suicide" is an actual, deflnite, tan- gible fact, a characteristic of tho more intense civilization of the twentieth cen tury, and perhaps an outcome of tho more general diffusion of education. S. N. D. North, Director of the Census, in The Youth's Companion. The DeVelopment of Electricity. To watch the whirring wheels of tho mammoth generators, motors and other electrical mechanism in the modern pow- er house makes it almost impossible to be lieve that the history of modern electrical development lsonly about 25 years old,al though electricity was known to the an cients many thousands of years ago. From authentic record it appears that the loadstone was discovered by the Chi nese as long ago as 2600 B.C., although they made ho practical use of the discov- ery. The first electricity intentionally generated was produced by the Greeks about year 600 B.C.in poliBhingamber for ornamental purposes. It wasBOonnoticed that if a piece of amber was rubbed with silk it became possessed of a peculiar povver which it did not have before. It was not until sorne years later known as electricity. At first, according to the ancient superstition, the mysterious force was looked upon as magic. It was long known that the loadstone would attract pieces of iron, but it was not until 1200 A.D. that man discovered that it would point north and south if suspended and allowed to swing freely. Several nations discovered this phenomena about the same time, but the first practical use of the compass was made in 1492, when Columbus discovered America the home of electricity. As there was no other method of obtaining magnets other than rubbing the steel on the loadstone, all the early compasses were made in this way. It was in the year 1752 Ben Franklin sent up his kite and told the world that electricity generated by rubbing amber, glass and sulphur was the eame as the lightning in the sky. This inspired the scienti8ts of that day to give a great deal of time and attention to the study of elec tricity, and Franklin has since been called theoriginatorof the scienceof electricity A new method of generatlng electricity by chemical action was discovered by Volta in 1793. Tradition has it that he one day hung frog legs on an iron near his house. The acids in the flesh acted upon the iron and, dripping upon a cop per railing, just underneath, generated chemical electricity which caused the muscles in the legs to twitch every time they straightened out and touched the copper. Studying this problem, he used copper and zinc plates separated by wet cloths for the first chemical battery, and a few years later it was discovered that a Bteady current of electricity could be developed by submerging the zinc and copper plates in an acid bath. In 1800 Sir Humphrey Davy made the largest battery in the world, one of 2,000 cells, and obtained a current of sufQcient strength to make a strong arc when the wires carrying the electricity were sep- arated just a trifle. From this simple experiment was born the arc light of to day. Soon after this it was found that a number of turns of insulated wire around a soft iron bar produced a tnag- net when the current was turned on and there after it was no longernecessary to utilize the old loadstones. t In 1832 Faraday discovered that if a coil of wire was brought near a magnet acuirentof electricity was generated. From this simple experiment the great dynamos and generators of today were evolved. So in 600 B. C. electricity was generated by friction; in 1793 A. D. by chemical action, and in 1832 A. D. from magnetism, Thus in brief is the history of electric ity. It was long in coming, but the pro- grees in its development during the last few years seems little short of the magic firet associated with the hidden force ,by the ancient Greeks. Little did they dream of the force and powcr within thefr grasp, and it is even hard for us to day to associate the little loadstone with the mammoth 12.000 horsepower genera tors of New York and Chicago power Our New Hair Vigor Ayer's Hair Vigor was good, the best that was made.

The Cotd Summer of 1816. April came in warra, but as the days grew longer tho air became colder, and by May 1 there was a temperature like that of winter, with plenty of snow and ice. In May the young budB were frozcn dead, ice tormeu tiait an lncli thick on ponds and rivers, corn was killed. and the corn fields were planted again and again, until it became too late to raise a crop. By the lost of May in this climate the leaves are ueually in leaf, ana biras anti nowers are plenti ful. When the last of May arrived in 1810 everything had been killed by the cold. Juno was the coldest month of roses ever experienced in this latitude. Frost and ice were as common as buttercups usually are. Almost everything green was killed; all fruit was destroyed. Snow fell 10 inches deep in Vermont. There was a 7-inch Bnow fall in Maine. a 3-inch fall in the interior of New York State; the eame in Massachueetts. There were only a few moderately warm days. Jiiverybouy lookecl, Ionged and waited for warm weother, but warm weather did not come. It was also dry, very little rain fell. All Bum mer long the wind blew steodily from the north in blasts laden with snow and ice. Mothers knit socks of double thiekness for their children and made thlck mittens. Planting and shivering were done together, and the farmers who worked out their taxes on the country roads wore overcoats and mit tens. On June 17, there was a heavy fall of snow. A Vermont farmer sent a flock of sheep to paBture on June 10. The morning of tho 17th dawned with the thermometer below the freeziDg Kint. At about 9 o'clock in the morn ing tho owner of the sheep started to look up his flock. Before leaving home he turned to his wife and said jokingly : "Better start the neighbors coon; it is the middle of June and I may get lost in the snow. " An hour after he leftr home a terrible snow storm came up. The enow fell thick and fast, and as there was so much wind, the fleecy masses piled up in great drifts along the windward Bide of the fences and out-buildings. Night came and the farmer had not been heard of. His wlfe became frightened and alarmed the neighborhood. All the neighbors joined the searching party. On the third day they found him. He was lying in a hollow on a side hill, with both feet frozen ; he was half covered with snow, but alive. Most of the sheep were lost. A farmer near Tewksbury, Vt., owned a large field of corn. He built fires around the field to keep off the frost. Nearly every night he and his men took turns in keeping up the fires and watch ing that the corn did not freeze. The farmer was rewardedjor his tireless la bors by having the only crop of corn in the region. July came in with ice and snow. On the Fourth of July ice as thick as win dow glass formed through New England, New York, and in eome parts of the State of Pennsylvania. Indian corn, which in some parts of the east had struggled through May and June, gave up, froze, and died. To the surprise of everybody, August proved the worst month of all. Almost every green thing in this country and Eutope was blasted by frost. Snow fell in Barnett, 20 miles from London, Eng., on August 30. Newspapers received from England stated that 1816 would be remembered by the existing generation as the year in which there was no sum mer; very little corn ripened in New England. There was great privation, and thousands of persons would have perished in this country had it not been for the abundance of fish and wild game.

Downer and their two little sons depart tomorrow for Bread Loaf, Vermont. Mr. Downer's native place. They will go by the south ern route, via New Orleans, tbence to New York City, Washington and the Jamestown expositio'n, reaching Ver mont late in the month. The plan is to spend the summer there. This will be Mr. Downer's second visit "home" since he left for California, a mere youth, in 1876, retuming for the first time twelve years ago. The people of Stanislaus will join with us in wishing for Mr. Downer the full realization of all he anticipates in con nection with his visit to his boyhood home. He is one of the representative citizens of Sfanislaus, as evinced by the high and responsible position that of County Treasurer which he holds and has held since 1894. Last fall he was re-elected for the fourth consecutive four year term. His standing jis a mun and citizen could be no more eloquently eulogized than by this bald statement of fact. Fow men have been eimllarly hon ored and trusted by their fellow citizens. Our friend is distinctly a self-made man. The first six years of his career in California were spent in the mines, with Amador county as his headquarters. Then he came to Stanislaus and for a few years worked. in the harvest fields as an engineer. Later he had charge of Knowles & Son's warehouse for four years, and for three years thereaf ter con ducted the warehouse on his own account. In 1894 he was elected, Treasurer on the Democratio tlcket, renomination and re-election following in regular sequence. 4 with the necessary fat healthy growth. SOc. AND $1.00.

Darrow denied the existence of the gTeat consplracy to murder, ulleKed by the state with Orchard's testlniony as a basis; denled that the federation wns anythlng but an enriiost fightlng labor organlzatlon witli hiRher wnges, short er hours, tolerable working eondlttouo. and the care, safety and education of Its meinbers, and their wives and chl. dren as Its hlgh and only ir.otlves; de nled the lntlmacy with tbe three co-dc fcndnnts that Orchard laid clalm to; denied the several coiiferenecs and cou versations that Orchard swore to; de nled that Orchard had even cominltted many of the crlmes he had boahted of. and promlsed to make proof of his cou tentlons. Darrow charged that agents of the Mlneowners' association of Colorado nnd the Plnkerton deteotlves had joined hands ln a conspiracy to dis cndlt and destroy the Wt'stern Federa tlon of Mlners.
