Freedom has its penalties 3 well as its rewards. who has a chronic disease, that disease goes away when the fever goes. It seems fit and proper, too, that the more terrible malady should expel the less dangerous one; but since the patient may die while this process is going on, it is probable that yellow fever will never become a popular cure for dys pepsia aud asthma. STATUE OF MICHAEL ANGELO, It One thing can In? said in favor of fire proof skysi-rapers. When they burn they make a magnificent spectacle. A Berlin paper sees in America "a rising star." The Berliuese first no ticed the new star in the horizon of the Philippines. Another American girt may marry an English duke. It's not so much a ques tion of clear title perhaps as what kind of a lot he is. It turns out that that bumptious Tankee in Berlin only called the Kaiser a calf s head. There was something cowardly about that. When Russia gets that big ship canal from the Baltic to the Black Sea, her sea' power may begin to vie with that of her great rival, England. They may take his dust back to Spain, but this nation will always re spect Columbus as the first man to recognize what a great country we have. The man who sifts things to the bot tom for himself has decided that the reason Aguinaldo wanted a gold collar was to save laundry bills after the American regime began. Pretty nearly everything that has de veloped concerning the late Mr. Keely since his death has gone to confirm the Impression that he was a clever worker In the material of general and indi vidual credulity. The action of a New York court in forbidding a pretty woman accused of blackmail to sJt where the jury could see her is being generally construed as a recognition of hypnotism. That kind of hypnotism, however, is as old as Eve and the apple. Public taste in theatricals is attaining every year a higher standard. Better stage work is demanded, better plays are wanted and the craze for light and frothy musical farces, interspersed with musical features, is yielding grad ually to the demand for more serious productions at the regular theaters. Those Grenada women who stoned the statue of Columbus because they considered the discovery of America the principal cause of Spain's misfor tunes acted thoughtlessly. If they wished to show disrespect to the man who was the real cause of Spain's troubles they should have stoned the tomb of Adam. The German Kaiser declares that his recent visit to Jerusalem was a great disappointment to him; that "its squalid, undignified decay is Indescrib able" and "shattered the dearest il lusion of his hpart." And yet if he had looked for the cause he would have found one of the most potent in the policy of the Sultan, with whom he hob nobbed with such ostentatious show of sympathy and friendship.

Old-timers are unanimous in saying that the win ter of 1897-8 was the mildest ever known in Northern Alaska. Be this as it may the weather In the Yukon, on account of the dryness of the at mosphere and the absence of winds, was almost uniformly pleasant.

Michael Angelo was neither stately I nor tall; he was In no respect a hand- some man. and his plain face had been disfigured by an injury. He dressed in ' a careless manner and historians have I described him as the exact opposite of the popular, beautiful and artistically robed Raphael. All these short-com- iugs, all the eccentricities and peeuliari j ties, have been considered in the mod i eling of the statue, and the artist has ; taken pains to show and not to hide ! them.

Richardson's "Beyond the Mississippi," published more than a quarter of a century ago, occurs a passage which, in the light of recent events and their ulterior possibilities, 6eems almost prophetic, lie points to the fact that the "Spirit of Progress," emerging from Egypt and China, has passed on through Greece and Ronie and Western Europe; across the At lantic, through Jamestown harbor, over Plymouth Rock, and on to the Pacific. "Ere long." he continues, "through Che Golden Gates of San Francisco, it will go out by the islands of the sea to that dreamy Orient where it was boru. And then what?" If they had to le thrashed, and It seems that a thrashing was due them, the Spaniards can thank their lucky stars that they fell into the hands of so magnanimous a foe as the United States. If this nation had been bent on conquest It could have stripped Spain of Its last Island and exacted a big In demnity besides. Compare the com pensation Germany grabbed from China for the loss of a missionary or two with the treatment of Spain by this nation. The country has as much cause for pride in Its generous conduct as in its prowess as shown in the late conflict. Even yellow fever finds apologies. Curious stories of the good it incident ally did, come from Southerners who pnssed through the recent epidemic. A conlirmed dyspeptic avers that now he can eat anything; a man who had suf fered twenty years with asthma says lie is wholly free from that distressing malady; and these and others declare that. If yellow fever attacks a person and have also a working majority in both houses of Congress. It has hap pened but rarely during the last thirty years that these conditions have exist ed.

AH-pitT- ( sentatlves elected at the same time. But as two-thirds of the Senators hold over, ! the majority in the Senate is often hos- I tile to the President, or the usual re- : action gainst the dominant party in the "off year" may give a hostile majority ' In the House of Representatives. Un- der these conditions, the party nomin- ally in power cannot be held to a strict j accountability. If it fails to keep its promises it can point to a divided Con- gress as its excuse. Voters become confused, and enough of them shift ' from one party to the other to keep up ' a seesaw movement in national poli tics. It is lest for the country that a ; party which elects a President should control both houses of Congress, but i with a minority strong enough to pre- I vent the adopiiou of extreme measures. ' Then there is an opportunity for the j party to carry out Its policy. If it fails : to do so. It can be held to account. Or ; if the people do not like the policy, ' when embodied In legislation, they can i express their disapproval by giving I political control to the opposing party. HOLBROOK, A. T. ST. JOHNS, A.
