Their Election Thus Prohibited,
but Some Counties Disobey.
The State Democratic convention at
its recent session passed a rule that
members of county boards of control
and dispeners should not be voted for
in the primary.. Notwithstanding this,
one or two county committees have
made provision for holding such
elections?one of them is Edgefield,
and it is stated that such elections
will be held in that county, the con
vention rule to the contrary notwith
The plan was also mooted in Aiken,
but it has not been adopted. Chair
man Wilie Jones, in reply to Chairman
Thorpe, of Aiken, says :
"Article 6 of the constitution of the
Democratic party prohibits the nomi
nation in the primary of members of
the county board of control and coun
ty dispensers. I do not think that it
would be according to the constitution
to allow a ballot box to be voted for as
an expxression of opinion. It would
undoutedly be contrary to the consti- [
tution, and I therefore rule that it
cannot be done. "
On the advice of Senator Hanna,
who is too astute a politician not to
appreciate the baneful effect on his
party ?f the continued suppression of
facts and figures by the war depart
ment, Secretary Boot has made pub
lic the cost of the Phiff?ppine war
up to the first of May. By the most
conservative methods of figuring
which the Secretary could command,
the total now aggregates $170,326,586.
These figures, large as they are, do
not however, tell tbe whole story.
Mr. Root, of course, makes no men
tion of the $20,000,000 originally paid
to Spain, nor has he any way of figur
ing that portion of the cost which has
been incurred by the navy depart
ment, and which is not small. Last
May, however, the secretary of the
navy threw some light on the situa
tion by sending to Congress a state
ment, the total of which aggregated,
in round numbers, 820,000,000. It;
may, therefore, be safely stated that
the Philippine Islands have cost this
country, up to date, $210,000,000,
which would mean, exclusive of the
purchase price, an annual expenditure
of $50,000,00t. So-stupendous are
these figures that they convey but lit
tle to the mind of the average man,
but when it is calculated that the isl
ands have cost every man in the
United States $3, or, to the bread
winner who has five mouths to feed,
$15, some conception of the expense of
being a "world power" can be arrived

"One of the most curious traits to be
found in the animal nature," said an
observant citizen, "is that which grows
out of the unconscious Imitativeness of
creatures of the lower order. I have
observed many instances of where the
creatures of a lower order have taken
on the characteristics in some notice
able degree of members of the human
family. One might know, for instance,
the beggar's dog from the look of the
dog, from the droop of the eye, the pa
thetic hang of the lip and a certain gen
eral air of despondency and hopeless
ness which seems to speak in the very
nature of the animal. I mention the
beggar's dog because it is a familiar
example. The beggar's dog never looks
cheerful, never smiles, never frohes,
but simply sits by his master and
broods and begs for whatever charity
may give.
"I have seen the dog character mold
ed under happier influences, and the
dog became more" cheerful. He was a
light hearted, free and easy sort of
creature and seemed to get something
of the sunnier side of things. I am al
most tempted to say that if you will
show me a man's dog I will tell you
what 'manner of man the owner is,
with particular reference to tempera
ment and his moods. Th? melancholy
man. tibe mau who grovels mentally
along the gloomier groves, the pessi
mistic man who is always looking at
the darle side of th? picture, ail the men
who come within these unhappy classi
fications rarely own a cheerful dog.
The dog unconsciously takes to the
ways of the master and In his moods
Imitates the master's way of thinking.
"But turn to the dog of the jolly,
cheerful fellow. Watch him show his
teeth in laughter when the master ap
proaches. He is darting across the
yard and dancing and frisking around
the master's feet in the happiest way
imaginable, and he is up to all kinds of
pranks and does all kinds of little
things to indicate the good nature that
is in him. He does as his master does
and seems to take the same general
view of life. These are small things, I
guess, but they show just how impor
tant one's way of thinking may influ
ence one's dog and change his* whole
view of life."?New Orleans Times
Barxnese Ambition.
The highest ambition of a Burman's
life is to build a pagoda, by which he
wins the title of Kyanng Taga during
this incarnation and secures a mort
gage on Nirvana. A Burman does not
become a Christian easily,^ but when
he does he brings with him the convic
tion he had as a Buddhist that to build
a place of worship is the most meri
torious act of a man's life.
This accounts for the present cathe
dral of Mandalay, built at a cost of
00,000 rupees by Kyanng Taga Paul
Obon, a Burmese ruby merchant of
that city. The old church of Amara
pura was built by an Armenian and the
two churches of the Tennessarim coast
by a gentleman named De Castro.
Many of the 700 and more chapels
and churches throughout Burma are
built of jungle wood, which is destroy
ed in a few years by the white ants.

matter of hope with every priest, but

There is one thing anarchists will not

They are disagreed about many thiugs.
There are individualist anarchists and

A Man Who Wishes Be Had Lived
Up to That Rule.
"The only way for a man on a salary
to make a success of life financially
and otherwise is to stick to one thing."
said a government employee to a re

stock of ideas. I determined to become

Cut rates were unknown in those days,
and in a short time I was doing well,
but one day I read of a prominent law
yer receiving $25,000 as a fee for some
case, and instantly I became imbued
with the idea that I would make a

business to such an extent that in two
years I was $500 to the bad. In the
meantime I read law diligently. Alfter

as fast as I thought it should, I opened

The Florin.
The florin, one of the most famous of
modern coins, originated in Florence.
Some say that it gave the name to the
city, while others assert that it was
first so called because it had on it a
flower-de-luce, from the Italian fiorone,
or "flower," for the same reason that
an English silver piece is called a
"crown," or certain goldpieces in
France indifferently a "napoleon" or a
"louis," or the ten dollar goldpiece in
America an "eagle."
Two countries, Austria and Holland,
have retained the florin as a unit o.'
monetary value, taking it at a tim<
when it was very universal in Europe,
its usage having been rendered general
by the financial supremacy of the little
states of northern Italy and the imper
