KUSDEROUS IMPULSE DANGEROUS TO SOCIETY.
jLFONSO , King of Spain , said , when
congratulated on his escape , "Yes , but it will
come again. " The risk is always there. And
this boy has really little more to do with the
actual government of Spain than the device
on his coach. He is sentenced to death
through no fault of his own , whether of
commission or omission. Even his most virulent enemy
admits that he Is of great personal amiability , anxious to
do everything in his power for the people nominally his
subjects.
When President Garfleld was assassinated General
Grant exclaimed , "For my parr. I am in favor of having
the civilized nations put down t.iese assassins with a hard
hand , " It was the natural cxp-pssion of a blunt and
simple nature , and we hear it ec.-ed every time there is
an anarchistic outrage. Andrew D. White would have
an International bureau of poli e to run down bomb-
throwers. But , anarchism being In defiance of all rea
son , It is impossible to cure or crush It by reasonable
methods.
It Is an error to assume that T' se assassins strike for
principle's sake. Their murderoi.x impulse springs from
weakness , not strength of miru . The assassin loves a
shining mark , and It is equally t. C.Q that he loves a shin-
! ng moment.
In the case of the anarchist ? , theatricallsm Is carried
to the point of a disease. No : . irchist kills , or seeks to
kill , without careful regard for ; 19 dramatic and theatri
cal value of the background. Ii iocs no good to prove to
them that they are stupid as v. . .1 as inhuman ; that or
ganized government must go o : . : and that , as President
Roosevelt said In his first mess , ge , men will always be
found to step forward and tal'j the place of the mur
dered rulers. Anarchists care nothing for that or any
other argument , since their chit t aim Is to create terror
and produce an Immense sensation. St. Louis Chronicle.
THE OLD HONESTY AND THE NEW.
T is the fashion nowadays to deplore the gen
eral want of moral principle and to lament
lugubriously the decline of old-fashioned
honesty ? But , really , how about this old-
fashioned honesty ? It is always easy to see
a saint In a dead relative , just as it is easy
to see a statesman in a dead politician.
Grandfathers' virtues , like grandfathers' clocks , may be
. badge of respectability , but IH our own day they are
not always in good running order. Our forefathers were
not better than we are indeed , to judge from the crit-
tcism of their contemporaries , they were a good deal
worse.
The world in which old-fashioned honesty lived was
singularly uncomplicated. Smith knew Jones and Jones
knew Smith , and if the one did not cheat the other
there was every chance that each would die in the odor
of respectability. Individualism set the limits to old-
fashioned honesty.
We need this individualistic honesty to-day , and we
"have it. But we need to-day a very much bigger sort of
honesty an honesty which sees that our obligations are
set not alone by our relations with each other , but also
by our relations with municipalities and States , with a
nation and a world. Such honesty is not any too com
mon , but it Is growing. Men have gone down to their
mausoleums labeled honest millionaires who were direc
tors In corporations whose methods would bring blushes
to the cheek of a confidence man. According to the
standard of old-fashioned honesty there was nothing to
fbe said against these honest millionaires. 'But from the
: point of view of the new honesty they were thieves
though they robbed legally.
One does not need to be an academic optimist to see
A HEARTY WELCOME.
One of the earliest acts of Abraham.
: ncoln as President was to appoint
Dr. William Jayne as first governor
o Dakota Territory. It rested with
the governor to determine what point
la. the territory should be the temporary
ary capital until such time as the leg
islature should select a permanent seat
of government ; therefore there was
a great rivalry among the little towns
In Dakota to secure the favor of the
new governor. In connection with this
rivalry the author of "A Brief ristory
of South Dakota" gives this story :
It was reported that Governor
Jayne was driving out from Sioux
City to look over the Dakota towns
before he determined upon the temporary -
porary seat of government , and the en
terprising town of Vermilion energet
ically prepared a great banquet in ills
honor.
Presently a carriage containing two
-well-dressed gentlemen was seen approaching
preaching the village from the east ,
and a committee of citizens went out
to meet it and
welcome the new gov
ernor. The two men were invited to
.accompany the committee forthwith to
the banquet hall. There they partook
of a fine dinner , and several hours
were spent in speechmakiug.
The guest of honor thanked the people
ple sincerely for their courtesy , spoke
of his good Impressions of the country ,
and * declared Its Intention to settle
among them.
This declaration was greeted with
hearty cheers , but at that moment
three or four carriages drove through
the village , stopping only for a mo
ment , and then driving on toward
Tankton. Some one brought word into
the banquet hall that Governor Jayne
and his party had gone through to
Tankton without giving Vermilion tin
opportunity to do him honor. Then
the chairman turned to the guest at
the banquet and asked hfcn his name.
He said it was G. P Bigelow , and
i&e was much surprised to know he had
' &een mistaken for the new governor of
-the territory , supposing that he had
i met the usual hearty welcome which
the new towns of the West held out to
.Intending settlers.
„ . , Sorely as were the people of V r-
the beginning of this new-fashioned honesty. We are
doing the best we can to shape up laws which shall
express a new social conscience. Morality Is always a
generation or two ahead of legality. The number of
offenses against the moral and legal codes is increasing
enormously. Moral principle never cut so large a figure
In the affairs of this American people as it does now.
Our godly ancestors had one moral qualm where we
have twenty. It never occurred to them that a lottery
was wrong , or that it was wicked to drink rum , or to
whip a child or a wife , or to enslave the black man and
cheat and debauch the red man.
Nine out of ten of the little conscientious niceties of
life are discoveries of the last fifty years. More socie
ties to do all sorts of good and work all kinds of reforms
were created in the last two generations than had been
formed or thought of before from the beginning of the
world. Chicago Journal.
SOLD LIFE FOE , 15 CENTS.
WO Georgia fools quarreled over 15 cents
T | and both were shot dead. There can be no
I " protest against calling them fools. The lit-
tleuess of the amount involved , as measured
against life , or even against peace and order ,
is too striking. Yet , if all the men who
put their lives up against trivial things were
to be called fools there would be a lot of them. What a
host of people are dead or maimed all over this and
other lands just because they were plucky or foolish !
Physical courage , commonly accepted as one of the
noblest qualities , may become one of the basest Like
any other virtue It can become a fault An army of
good men have been killed in defense of things not
worth a thousandth part the cost Among them are those
who , from mistaken notions of courage , get up in the
dead of night to face the armed burglar that is sure to
be ready and desperate. There Is fine courage In this , to
be sure. But there is far finer courage and better sense
In quietly suffering the loss of the sackful of baubles
a burglar may carry off , which are of little value anyway
compared with your life , and certainly are of no value at
all when life is gone.
Either of these Georgians , who are now shot to death ,
would have laughed to scorn the idea of sacrificing his
life for so paltry a thing as 15 cents. It was uncon
trollable temper and misapplied courage that carried
them to their destruction. The best courage of all is the
courage to control one's temper. Cincinnati Post
THE FARMERS' 'NEW FRIEND.
E automobile is said to be particularly pop
ular In rural sections of Illinois , where a
great number of machines are being used for
commercial purposes. Illinois farmers have
learned by experience that one auto will
haul a dozen wagons.stretched out behind it ,
with a two-fold result : horses are left ut
work In the field , and produce Is transported to town
quicker and cheaper.
An even more far-reaching result Is the demand for
better roads. So long as the automobile was the play
thing of the city leisure class it was regarded suspiciously
by the farmer , who refused to become enthused over the
city man's demands for good country roads on which to
go scorching. But now that the automobile has been
adopted by the farmer he is as anxious for passable high
ways as the city man , and the two are working together
to bring the road millennium to pass.
Auto ploughs , rakes and harvesters have been intro
duced into the Northwest and found practicable , but the
adoption of the motor car by the farmer as a vehicle of
transportation for himself and his produce is more re

IlnmiredM of Billions of Tona of Coal
Stored Avray in the Earth.
German statisticians ar * patient
thorough workers , and the assurance of
a leading German technical journal
that the world's coal Is sufficient for
reasonable future demands is backed
by elaborate tables that inspire confi
dence. Germany's deposits . are esti
mated at 280,000,000,000 tons , or
enough , allowing for Increased demand ,
to last until the year 3000. Great Brit
ain and Ireland are not so well off , but
their 193,000,000,000 tons , with twice
the German consumption , will hold out
400 years. Other European countries
have a less extensive outlook. Bel
gium's coal deposits are estimated at
23,000,000,000 tons , of France at 39,000-
000,000 , Austria 17,000,000,000 and
Russia 40,000.000,000. North America
is * credited by this authority with GS1-
000,000,000 tons , or about the same as
all Europe. But Asia and Siberia are
believed to have even a greater store of
coal as yet undeveloped.
But calculations of future demands
upon the wealth of nature sometimes
break down In practice. The lumber
supply of the United States was once
supposed to be adequate for several
hundred years , but the growing prices
of the commodity show that already
trouble is in sight The immense in
crease in the use of steel and cement
proves that substitutes for wood are
sought Forestry principles will con
serve the timber supply , but It will take
time to supply them , and the country
will be fortunate If they become effec
tive before the havoc reaches the form
of desert places.
There was a time when a man who
did not get along with his wife was con
sidered disgraced for life. Now there
la a good deal of charity for such a
man , and some people go so far as to
say : "He 1 * not.altogether to blame. "
Society of Scarlet Death.
The following remarkable description
of the rites of the "Society of the
Scarlet Death" is quoted from the Ural
by Laffan's St. Petersburg correspond
ent , who states that the votaries of
the strange society are located near the
Savodsk lake , and that the exposure
has been made In consequence of the
disappearance of one of the citizens ,
says the London Mail :
"The Scarlet Death Is surrounded
with much 'circumstance : ' In the
house designed for the sacrifice there
is a room in which there Is neither
window nor fireplace. It is a grave
without a tenant The room is lined
with scarlet material , but one of the
walls is covered with a black cloth.
The floor is covered with scarlet Two
cushions are placed in the middle of
the floor.
"The victim Is then led In , and his
or her head Is placed on one of the
cushions. Then all the attendants
leave the room. After a few minutes
a young woman , clad also In scarlet ,
comes from behind the black cloth.
She slowly approaches , takes the second
end cushion and places it over the face
of the recumbent figure. Then she sits
upon the cushion and does not rise
till the condemned one has ceased -to
show signs of life.
"What leads up to the sacrifice Is
variously explained by the local inhab
itants. Some say that , it is to expedite
the progress of the sacrificed to para
dise ; and others hold that it Is a pun
ishment for the commission of som
mortal sin. "

A PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS.
ttyriada of Them Laying "Waste the
Harvest Fields of Hungary.
Myriads of locusts are devastating the
country in the neighborhood of Debrec-
zin , Hungary.
They are sweeping through the land ,
eating every green thing they find in their
path. The crops on 60,000 acres have al
ready 'been consumed , so that the ground
is quite bare , and the authorities are help
less to stay the advance ef the insects.
All sorts'of desperate means are being
tried without avail to keep back the in
vading host. Fires have been lighted , but
the locusts swarm into the flames until
they are extinguished , and the survivors
continue their inarch unimpeded.
Twelve steam rollers are being used at
one place , and roller brooms are sweeping
up the dead bodies of the crushed insects.
But no apparent progress is made. The
locusts cover the earth in many places
to the depth of several inches , and defy
annihilation.
To make matters worse , a storm has
carried clouds of them over the River
Theiss , arid they have devoured practi
cally all the corn , which was standing in
sheaves. What is left -worthless , as ani
mals refuse to touch it owing to its pe
culiar smell.
The plague first appeared last year ,
when a force of GOO men was organized
to destroy the locusts. This year the po
sition of affairs is much worse , and many
farmers are threatened with ruin.
NEED TWENTY THOUSAND MEN.
Canadian KorthTvcHt Cannot Har
vest Wheat Without Them.
The wheat growers of Manitoba and
Saskatchewan have sent forth a cry to
the older provinces in the Dominion for
men to assist them in harvesting this
year's crop of wheat. The yield will be
greater than in any previous season. Cou
pled with the yield is the increase in acre-
gge and the farmers do not know where
they will secure sufficient help to harvest
the crop.
I The Manitoba government estimates
already in the province will be required
that fully 20,000 men in addition to those
already in the province will be required
to care for the crop of wheat. The gov
ernment has undertaken to secure men
from the older provinces , and agents have
been placed in the larger cities with in
structions , to secure men and forward
them to Winnipeg , from which point they
will be distributed to the grain centers.
' The general prosperity of the country ,
which insures work for everyone ; the
heavy demand for laborers in western
Canada and in our own Western States ,
and the usual demand for extra men at
this season of the year for the gathering
of the crops , have resulted in an unusual
shortage of farm help.
NONCONTIGOUS TRADE LARGE.
(
Figures for Fiscal Year Shovr Bn.sl-
1 ness -with. "Dependencies. "
I Trade of the United States with its
non-contiguous territories amounted in the
fiscal year just ended to $119,304,511. A
bulletin issued by the Department of Com
merce and Labor says :
"The shipments to the non-contiguous
territories amounted to $51,000,0156.07.
against $43,500,000 in the fiscal year
1905 , this growth of about 20 per cent
occurring in the shipments to Alaska , Ha
waii and Porto Rico , but especially Porto
Rico , while to the Philippine Islands
there was a reduction of about $750,000.
"Merchandise shipped from the non
contiguous territories to the United States
amounted to $07,000,000.07 , against $75-
250,000 in the preceding year , this fall oc-
curing almost exclusively in the ship
ments from Hawaii and being due chiefly
to the decrease in the value of sugar. "
The value of gold of domestic produc
tion shipped from Alaska to the United
States in 1900 was $12,500,000 , against
$9,000,000 the preceding year , and of for
eign gold $7,500,000 , against $10,750,000
last year , this "foreign" gold being the
product of mines in the adjacent Cana
dian territory shipped to the United
States through Alaska.
158 DEAD ; CELEBRATED JULY 4.
Medical Journal Asserts 73 of These
Died from Tetanus.
One hundred and fifty-eight persons are
dead as a result of accidents in the Unit
ed States during the last celebration of
the Fourth of July. Tetanus is given as
the cause in seventy-five cases. The total
number of injuries reported is 5,308 , the
largest in four years that statistics have
been compiled. These figures are given in
the current issue of the Journal of the
American Medical Association. A com
parison of the total of accidents directly
due to the toy pistol in the last four years
shows a decrease until th > s year , when
979 persons were injured by blank cart
ridges.
The report declares that the greater
number of minor accidents were due to
giant firecrackers. Of the injured'twenty-
two suffered complete loss of sight , seven
ty-two one eye. fifty-six legs , arms or
hands and 227 fingers.
Root to Pan-American Congress.
Secretary of State Root addressed the

with a message of good-fellowship and cooperation -
operation , which created a most favorable
impression. He said American nations
should aid each other , but that the United
States coveted no territory. He compli-
men ted Latin America on its progress to-
fl
ward stable government. He declared that
we wished no victories but those of peace ,
and no sovereignty except sovereignty over
ourselves. No rights were claimed which .
we would not freely concede to every oth
er American republic. He declared that
the coming world's congress at The ,
Hague , at which all American countries
would be represented , would be "the for
mal and final acceptance of the declaration -
tion that no part of the American conti 4
nent is to be deemed subject to coloniza

Walking ? on tlie Water.
Two inventors' are claiming attention of
the scientific world just now in connec
tion with a kind of aquatic shoes. Josa
Antonio , a Mexican student in the depart
ment of mechanical engineering at Cor
nell , gave a successful test of his device
by walking a mile and a half on the surface
,
face of Cayuga lake. The shoes , which
closely resemble small boats , are con
structed of tin , 5 feet 3 inches long , 14
inches wide and 9 % inches deep. Each
contains four separate air chambers , be
sides the compartment for the foot. The
shoes are equipped with collapsible fans ,
which close as the wearer steps forward
and then open to prevent the shoes from
slipping backward.
A somewhat similar footgear for water
walking is described in the Technical
World Magazine for August , and credited
to Lieut. Arthur T. Sadler of the United
States volunteer life-saving crew at
Charlesbank , Mass. Sadler claims to have
made a two-mile trip on his shoes. He
says he got his idea from watching the
way a duck uses its feet. His shoes are
feet 3 inches long , 9 inches wide and
S1.- * ! inches deep , being the smallest that
vould carry his -weight , 135 pounds.
American laborer Better Oft .
The bureau of labor has issued statis
tics for 1905 , and estimates that the la
boring man is better off as to wages and
hours of labor. In 1905 the purchasing
power of wages was 1 per cent higher
than in 1904 and the retail prices of food
were slightly higher. This advantage was
more than offset , however , by the increase
in the purchasing power of his wages.
The average wages per hour in 1905were
18.9 per cent higher than the average
period from 1895 to 1899 , and the num
ber of employes were 36 per cent

player to keep his eyes on tbe ball at
the moment of striking it , yet there are
very few expert players who do so.

NEW ELECTRIC LIGHT.
Cheap Substitute for Present Fila
ment Wires in Bulbs.
A new electric lamp , which threatens
to revolutionize the present system of
lighting by means of the electric cur
rent , has been devised by an Austrian
chemist Dr. Hans Kuzel who has oc
cupied many years in studying the prin
ciple involved in his invention. He has
succeeded In devising a lamp which ha
calls the Syrius lamp , and which prom
ises to reduce the price of electoal
<
lighting to a wonderful degree ,
the New York Tribune. As is
known , incandescent gas lighting 13
much cheaper than electric light under
the present sj-stems , because the fila
ment wires of the latter are very ex
pensive , and the glass bulbs soon wear
out in service. Dr. Kuzel has Invented
a substitute for the glow thread , by
forming out of common anil cheap met
als and metalloids colloids in a plastic
mass , which can be handled like clay ,
and which , when dry , become as hard
as stone. Out of this mass very thin
wire threads are then shaped , which
are of uniform thickness and of great
homogeneity. Tbese two characteris
tics are of great value in the technics
or Incandescent lamps.
The Kuzel or Syrius lamp requires
scarcely one-quarter of the electric cur
rent which the ordinary electric lamp
with a filament wire requires. Exper
iments have shown , it is asserted , t ti
the new Syrius lamp can burn for & , -
500 hours at a stretch. Another ad
vantage claimed for the Syrius is that
the Intensity of the light always re
mains the same , the lamp bulbs never
becoming blackened , as is thp case with
the ordinary bulb.
