C. . ANDERSON, Publisher. HOLBKOOK, - ABIZOKA After all there are but three seasocs, base ball, football and snowball. Jersey cyclones, it seems, are even more destructive than the home-made brand of lightning that State produces. i Galling, the gun inventor, recently celebrated his 81st birthday. A lively blowout would have been the proper thing. ' Supposing that through hackmen and hotel keepers visitors to Niagara S have to come down handsomely, the Falls themselves firát set the example. The marriage of Mis3 Julia Dent Grant twice in two days leads to the query as to whether she would have to get two divorces in the event that she shou'.d ever need one. The newspaper woman who was be trothed to the Hindoo millionaire has Discovered that her fiance was a fraud. However, she ought to be com pensated by the fact that the story makes good "copy." "Never pardon a pub'ic servant who Is dishonest," said Governor Roosevelt the other day, "just because he is of your own party, or because he gets ap propriations for your district." With those words he hit the mark as surely as did any of his Rough Riders with their bullets on San Juan hill; and it was a more important mark even than theirs. It it said that, although young Cor nelius VanderbUt gets $10,000,000 from his father's estate, it reverts to the es tate again on Uta death, so that his children can inherit nothing of it. Still, by saving a hundred thousand or so out of the income each year, the young man can' probably leave enough in his wife's name to keep the wolf from the floor after he is gone. The curfew ordinance has received a good deal of newspaper ridicule, yet Its practical workings have been very sal utary. In alluding to the willingness of some of the daily papers to "poke fun" at Elmira, N. Y., where the ordin ance is in force, the Advertiser of that city declares tihat the result of the en forcement of the simple law has been beneficial, and observes, truly enough: "If large numbers of the young can be kept from temptation and evil courses by so simple a device. It is far wiser to try it than to jeer at it. It is not a laughing matter, but one of grave mo ment to the welfare of our towns and cities." ' A New England man is credited with trying a dangerous experiment, an ex periment which ended as dangerous experiments are pretty certain to end. When he married several years ago his wife's mother came to live with the happy pair. When his wife died he married his mother-in-law. But the marriage was to be kept a dead secret. It was until the rash man . brought home still another wife. For more than two months the mother-tn-law-wife said nothing, but finally she blurt ed out the whole miserable truth. Then there was a rumpus, the two women going their ways, 'and the much-mar-rled man promising to go to sea. It was a wretched experiment, and the only fault to be found with its inevita ble climax is that the wretched man got off without any of the punishment he so richly deserved. An Easfern jury recently awarded a boy 15 years old $5.000 for the loss of his naDd. Immediately afterward. In the same court, a girl of 14, who had lost hear hand, was a warded only $3,000. Was not the girl the far more griev ously injured? We think so. A girl's prospects for marrying well for be coming a good wife, a good housekeep er and a good mother are what she is taught to depend upon most for hap piness in this world. Deprived of these, sihe has little left to dream of or hope for. Worklngmen In partcu lar are not looking for wives with only one arm. Neither can a one-armed wo man get a position on which she can live decently unless she be a woman whose mental attainments are high enough to be regarded as marketable. On the other hand, a one-armed boy can turn his eolietary ""hand to many things. If he can learn to write legl bly and with facility there are num berless positions which he may fill. He may keep a store, drive bargains, keep books, be a lawyer, a politician, a gov ernor or a president. The little girl was cheated by that Jury. The United States has some pecuni ary burdens to bear as a part of Its duty as a member of the family of na tions. It contributes one hundred dol lars yearly to the expense of keeping up at Brussels what Is known as the 'International Bureau for the Repres sion of the African Slave Trade." Our Government is also a member of the Enten-Atlonal Geodetic Association, and pays annually fifteen hundred dollars toward measurements to determine the size of the earth. There is an interna tional bureau of weights and measures, with headquarters at Brussels, to whteh the Government pays $2,270, and a similar bureau there for the pub lication of customs tariffs, toward I which it pays about half as much. It 4 also costs the United States quite a j sum to provide prisons for American I convicts in Asiatic countries where the local judicial tribunals are not trusted. Lighthouses were needed on the coast of Morocco which that government would not provide. The great commer cial nations put up the lighthouses at their own expense. The share of this country in maintaining them is abou: $325 annually. Toronto is establishing a municipal technical school similar to those main tained in British cities. Not less than $100,000 from the municipal treasury is to be expended on the site, buildings and equipment, and the Dominion is to contribute $3,000 for support. The plan is to maintain day classes and night classes, the former for fairly well educated children of fourteen years and upward; the latter for whomsoever cares to enter irrespective of age or educational status. The courses are to provide for instruction in drawing in its relation to designing, decoration and the mechanical arts, in the principles of the mechanical powers, the use of steam and electricity. In chemistry. commercial arithmetic and commer cial geography, with particular refer ence to the countries with which Can ada carries on an export and import trade. Training in the use of tools and machinery Is to be included. Both in Germany and in England these tech nical schools, which are largely at tended by workers in the factories and shops, are having a decided Influence upon the trade and commerce of the cities that support them. Intelligent workmen are the foundation of trade and of prosperity, as our own indus trial history proves. But even with the advantages we now possess this coun try cannot afford to be much behind hand in this matter of technical schools. Fall River and other towns where textile industry is dominant have realized this and acted accord ingly. And though, the time is not yet, we all will have to fall into line in the course of the next decade. A German scientist has recently ob tained what seem to be conclusive proofs of the presence of pathogenic germs In the whiskers that appertain to physicians. He declares that the beards of doctors, who are constantly being brought into contact with all kinds of diseases, liteially swarm with these germs, and shows that contagion is often spread by the very man whose business should be to check it la Breslau, where the tests and examina tions of the whiskers have been made. the people have develoied a strong op position to beards, and those practi tioners who object to being shorn of their, hirsute adornments may be seen going through the streets with their whiskers safely stowed away in rub ber pouches made especially for the purpose. In some other places the war on germs has been carried to a point where women who act as nurses in hospitals or private families are compelled to have their hair cut short and to wear rubber eaps over their heads while performing their duties at the sick beds. Doctors who refuse to give up their whiskers and nurses who cling to their luxuriant locks are avoided as the plague, and altogther, the outlook for barbers is very encour aging. Here In America this same germ theory luis been discussed at var ious times during the last five or ten years, with more or less earnestness. There seems to be little doubt that germs may be carried about either in a man's whiskers or in a woman's hair, but no combination has as yet been formed against either of these styles of adornment. If the opposition to whis kers which now prevails in Germany and Austria should spread to thiscoun try It would bring about some import ant changes in medical practice. At present the first thing a young man who desires to be a doctor proceeds to do after graduating from the medical college is raise a bea.rd. Many of the students, indeed, throw their razors away even before they get their diplo mas, for the rule seems to be that the wore imposing the young doctor's beard Is the more readiJy may hei en ter upon a regular practice. In the past whiskers have Inspired confi dence. The smooth-faced graduate Biay have known much more about medicine than his classmate who could raise a vigorous beard did, but the latter always got the patients. This fact is undoubtedly responsible for the wide prevalence of whiskers among members of the medical profession. It is higfh time that the smooth-faced doc tors had a fair show, and the germ seems to be coming forward for the purpose of seeing that they get it. The day may be near at hand .when only doctors with bare faces and bald heads may find It profitable to have office hours. A woman, to say the least but, then.
