The noiseless rifle is welcomed. Any thing that makes war more deadly and more dangerous, explains tb~ Philadelphia Inquirer, is certain to ad vance the cause of peace, though fe» of us expect to live to see the univer sal brotherhood of man established. Bishop Old nam was telling a gatb Ing of Chicago Methodists about the Malay Archipelago. "They build their houses as close to the seashore as possible," he said, "and when they wake up in the -norningthey just prop up a window, stick out a flshpole and catch a number of fish for their break last without even getting out of bed." The adventure of the two German army officers of the garrison of Stras bsrg whose balloon came down on foreign soil—making tbem involun tary guests of the French army officers at Toul—suggests to "L'Eclair" of Par is that it's high time we were defining the rights and reciprocal duties of nations in the unfrontlered expanse overhead. At St. Joseph. Mo, John A. Hart came to himself at the first touch of a knife In what wan to have been a post-mortem examination.

"It is giving cul tured Buropesns the Idea that Amer ican women rare nothing for anything exr»pt foreign titles and social posi tion. snd that the American men have iio respeci tor ine American women.' Just why farmers should be consid ered easy for grafters and swindlers is not clear to the Agricultural Epito mlst, and yet that impression is broad. It would seem that a man with Intelli gence enough to make money at a busi ness calling for energy and brains. a» farming does, would quickly remove that reputation. The reading farmer bites not at a stranger's hook. His farm Journal renders him immune trom attacks of all who prey on oth ers' industry and prosperity. City business men are fond of tell inn Just why the farmers do not make more money. Likewise the average farmer, if be bad time, admits the American Cultivator, would, no doubt, enjoy telling why so many city con cerns fall up and are sold out. No harm is done when all this good ad vice ends in talk, but when the stor*' keeper takes himself seriously, aud starts out with a big farm and a mortgage trying to show how things ought to be done, he often cuts the same distressful figure that a farmer would exhibit if suddenly placed in charge of a big department store at the outset of hard times.

"The stove trade in Brazil." say* Consul-General Anderson. (Rio de J a nelro,) "is conflnea, as a whole, almost altogether to kttchen stoves. Even In the mountains of the northern portion* of the country heating stoves are un known. In the uplands of the south ern portion a few modern stoves are tu be seen, but in general the people of Brazil live without fires for warmth except such as may be had in fire grates. The sort of kitchen stove to be Introduced here depends largely upon customs matters. The tariff Is fixed by weight and each additional pound in a stove adds to the cost of the stove. The flrat necessity of the trade in Brazil, therefore, Is a light stove." Indeed, we are so reactlonary. con fesses the New York Post, as to be lieve with President Eliot and Dr. Sar gent that what our colleges need Is not more athletic competition but less. We bave not yet beard of football and baseball contests between Radcllffe, Bryn Mawr, and Smith, but wa do know that tbelr athletic progress Is no marked that even the jester can no longer portray the college girl as a half-blind, thln-cbested. dyspeptic. Mooplng person, without charms. What Is doing the work with them, as with their brothers In Harvard. Is the great er popular knowledge of hygienics, the regular physical training In the pre paratory schools, and the better teach Ings of fathers and mothers, some of whom, we blush to say. never attended a single football game.

The strong Irons of Portland lined up against the Peaks Island nine on Saturday afternoon, and won by the large score of 14 to 3. The game was a one-sided contest from the first, and Peaks didn't score their first run until the fourth inning, when they made a single tally, much to the delight of their fans. The Irons have a record of playing a large number of games In which their opponents were whitewashed, and though the game was lost the home team was glad to make a score. The Irons hit the ball well, making ten hits off the delivery of Reardon, who pitched a very steady game. There were many brilliant plays and the game was greatly enjoyed.

Poor Substitutes for the Horse In Ori ental Countries. A writer for "The National Geo graphic Magazine*' lays great stress on the service to civilization which la ren dered by the horse. That animal, he says, is found chiefly In thoee countries which lie within the temperate zone, and which may be regarded as Occiden tal. There are believed to be 100.000. 000 horses In the world today, and four-flfths of them are In the regions Just Indicated, in tropical and Orien tal countries the work of carrying burdens and drawing vehicles is per formed by donkeys, oxen or buffaloa, elephants and man himself. The writer Just mentioned. O. P. Austin, of the National Bureau of Sta tistics, has information about the num bers of these animals employed in the work described. He has reason to think that there are 3,o00,000 camela, 20.000,000 buffaloes and 10,000.000 don keys. In the United States and Canada there is one horse on an average to every three and a half persons; In Mexico, one to every twelve; in Tur key. one to every forty; in Japan, one to every thirty-three; in the Philip pines, one to every fifty, and In In dia and Southern China one to every 200. Mr. Austin estimates the weight which a horse will carry at from 200 to 250 pounds, a donkey lrom 100 to 200, an ox about the same, the nama (South American relative of the camel) from 50 to 200, the true camel from 350 to 500 and the elephant from 1800 to 2500 pounds. A man can carry from 75 to 150 pounds, though his ability de pends not only on ihs general strength but also on the method of sustaining the load. If he uses a neck yoke, as the Chinaman does, and divides the burden, he may be able to handle more than if he takes it in a single pack age. In Southern Europe and in Asi atic countries a practice is common which is notable for the skill exhibited rather than the weight sustained. Wo men often poise on their heads huge parcels of jars containing some fluid. For instance, milk is thus brought into .Manila from the rural district*. So deftly are these loads balanced that they do not need to be touched except to be put in place and removed. Of course. If a burden is put on wheels it can be moved by man or beast more easily than if actually car ried. In Belgium and some other coun tries carts are drawn by dogs. The same kind of animal pulls the sledges of the Esquimau and Laplander, though reindeer also perform such service in the Arctic regions. Camels usually carry freight and passengers on their backs, but occasionally they are hitch ed to wagons. Palanquins are some times born by camels, walking tandem, the two poles of the vehicle being ex ceptionally long. Their front ends are held up by the forward camel and the rear ends by the second one. the poles testing in straps wnlch hang down on either side of the animal from a sort of saddle. In India women of rank use a carriage drawn by a pair of bul locks. but also ride in palanquins hav ing human bearers. sun anotner vehicle which is much patronized in Oriental countries is the jinriksha. This has two wheels and a top like a buggy, and is drawn by a man or boy. This jinriksha is pro vided with two rods which correspond to the thills of a buggy, but are shorter. The forward ends are con nected by a crossbar, against which the man leans when pulling the ve hicle. Heavy carts for freight are ar ranged In the same general way. but are pushed from behind. In the Island of Madeira a low sled, drawn by oxen, is often used for transporting passen gers. who are sheltered from the sun by a rude canopy. Primitive but ingenious methods of crossing a stream are sometimes prac ticed In India. Mr. Austin says that huge bags made of buffalo skin and in flated like balloons, are employed there as rafts. Rawhide ropes are made to serve as bridges. The same writer refers also to the houseboat of the Chinaman, which Is a place of resi dence. not a means of transportation. Millions of Chinamen live in such craft, the boats being anchored in large rivers or harbors. These floating abodes usually contain a remarkable combination of things. There are con venient es for cooking, a tiny flower garden at one end and a pigsty at the other. The boats are often sculled from place to place by the mother of the family, with her children playing about her and her youngest strapped upon her back. A Thorough Lady.
