The native element predominates:,
though, like the Spaniards, the Chinese
have acquired 0 very Kubstantial foot
hold, and the two widely varying races
have largely intermingled their blood
tvith that of the native inhabitants. '
The mestizos, or mixed races, great
ly outnumber the Spaniards and exert
a decided influence in the islands.
The great majority of the" merchants
and landed proprietors are the de
scendants of Spanish fathers and na

When he ha3 conquered the Philip

will have to be introduced, that at

It is a veritable empire that Gen.
Mcrritt goc to take possession of in
the name of the American people. The
islands number about 1-.400 nnd con
tain about 150,000 square miles, a ter
ritory equal to nearly three-fourths of
the entire German empire. Toeonquer
and establish authority in such a vast,
widely-scattered territory is in itself
no trifling task, particularly when it
is remembered that some of the is
lands hare never been fully explored,
much less civilized.
The country must be classed as hilly
and mountainous, one peak rising to
a height of 10,000 foet, while five are
over 8,000 feet above the sea level. The
entire country, from sea to sea, in
cluding hills nnd mountains, is covered
with a dense semitropieal vegetation,
the Philippines occupying about the
same latitude ns Cuba. There are
three distinct seasons cold from No
vember fo March, hot from Mnrch to
June and wet from July to October.
Terrific thunderstorms occur in May
and June. Coal abounds in immense
deposits, the veins, many of them on
the coast, running from ten to twenty
feet in thickness. Iron ore, the equal
of that found in Sweden, exists ingreat
abundance, as also do deposits of cop
per. None of these have ever been de
veloped to any considerable extent.
Gold exists in all the islands and ex
perts declare that millions could easily
be taken out.

THE FITTING OF GLOVES.
Carcfal and Study the Correct
Won of Patting Them
On and Ofl.
The way to put gloves on and take
them off should be carefully ptudied.
First shake a little powder in the
glove, then place your elbow firmly on
the table, the hand upright, the thumb
at right angles with the palm.
Draw the body of the glove over the
fingers, and arrange each digit in the
glove-iinger intended for it, and see
that the seams are not twisted.
Carefully coas on the fingers, and
when they are fitted, smooth theback
stitchiug into place. Then insert the
thumb, the back seams again being
pulled -up straight and the wrist but
toned. The seam at the tip of the thumb
should be on a line with the middle of
Always fasten the second button
first, and be sure before putting on the
gloves that you have carefully teen to
the buttons being secure, otherwise,
some time when you are going out in
a hurry, a button may come off, and you
might not hive time to replace it, and
nothing makes gloves so much out of
shape as when they are worn without

water. Mix thoroughly, and rub into
the inside of the gloves with cotton
Another perfume for gloves is to mix
half an ounce of essence of roses, a
drachm each of oil of cloves and mace,
and a quarter of an ounce of frankin
cense. Place the mixture In tissue paper be
tween the gloves, then place a heavy
weight cn them. Leave the gloves un
der the weight for a day or two, until
they are permeated with the fragrance.
This will cling to the gloves until they
are entirely worn out.
After taking off your glores they
should be shaken and stretched out,
and -put in a glove box or drawer
somewhere where they can lie flat.

A LApfoI of Opnla.
I pegged out a claim at Duck Creek
opal field, Queensland, writes a corre
spondent. I had never dug opal bo
fore, but was confident end happy.
Sank a shaft, and hopef ullj-scrutinized
every piece of stone. I'y and by I was
startled by a strange r.oise overhead.
Dragged myself up and saw a greasy
black gin squatted on my mullock heap
with a lapful of opals, crooning to her
self, and softly rubbing a stone of the
first water with her apology for a
skirt. I was tempted to brain her with
the spade and drop her down the sep
ulcher just excavated. Subsequently
t ascertained that these hags are kept
by the "old hands" for fossicking pur

of the claims of innocent new hands at

THE CUKFEW SI' STEM
Successfully Adopted by
Argument For and Against Its Re
vival improved Conditions
Resulting frera Its Ob
The arguments against the revival of
the curfew mention among other ob
jections that it savors of a return to
medievalism and that it interferes
with parental rights and with personal
liberty. The advocates of the move
ment reply that there is no more medi
evalism connected with the ringing of
the curfew than there is with any other
custom that happened to be practical
then and is still followed, and that the
sentiment connected with the mere word
should not be allowed to confuse its
As to an interference with the rights
of parents, they point to what may be
called a similar interference in the mat
ter of compulsory education, imposed,
as the curfew is, for the good of the
state, and the question concerning per
sonal liberty is compared with the giv
ing Bf edged tools to infants for play
things. As a clinching argument in favor of
restricting the hours for children to
be on the streets at night, 300 towns
where the ringing of the curfew has
been adopted are noticed, and the de
crease in crime pointed out. Lincoln,
Neb., has, the mayor cf that town re
ports, already seen a vast improvement
in many directions; there are fewer
arrests and there is decided social ad
vancement. Omaha reports an equally
satisfactory state as a result cf the es
tablishment of the curfew, and Des
Moines, Denver, Leavenworth and
Yankton, S. D., have given siuiilar testi
mony as to the excellence of the rule.
The Ontario act is thought by some
to incorporate the most concise and con
sistent rules, which may be also appli
cable to American towns nnd villages.
This act is as follows:
Ontario, 1SG2. First Municipal
councils in cities, towns nnd incorpo
rated villages shall have power to pass
by-laws for the regulation of the time
after which children shail not be in the
streets at nightfall without proper
fmardianshin, nnd the osre, or apparent
age, of boys and pir!?, roeive-ivtly.

a warning. Id be called the "curfew
bell," after which the children so re
quired to be in their homes or off the
streets shall r;ot be found upon the pub
lic streets exept under proper control
or guardianship or for some unavoid
Second Any child so found after the
time appointed shall be liable to be
warned by any constable or peace offi
cer to go home, and if after such warn
ing the child shaft be found loitering on
the streets such child may be taken by
such constable to its home.
Third Any parent or guardian may
be summoned for permittina- his child
to habitually break said by-laws, after
having been warned in writing, and may
be fined for the first offense one dollar,
without costs, and for the second of
fense two dollars, and for a third, or
any subsequent offense, five dollars.
The suggestion that the curfew shall
ring the tune of "Ilomc, Sweet iTome"
is made with the hope that the rinnano-
of the bell shall be considered as an in
vitation to return to yie home rather
than as a command to do so. N. T.

I have known few men so free from
brag or hypocrisy as was the Ger
tnan prince when he ascended the),
imperial throne. On the Christmas im-'
mediately preceding the death of his
noble father he wrote a letter to a
friend 3,000 miles away. I havo no
right to make this letter public, but
shall be forgiven for this much: The
writer dwelt earnestly tinon the venr
that was closing, and particularly re-
lerrea to the problems of the future,
little dreaming that he was the one
who would be called1, upon to assist,
in their solution. In this letter he con
fessed that the ambition of his life was
to improve the condition of the work
ing people, to reconcile the rasping
conflict between those who have and
those who have not, and above all, to
make the Christian religion a real thing
