London, August 24.?The Madrid cor? respondent of the Times says : "One paper here declares boldly, on the authority of on anonymous French diplo? matist, that owing to Hanotaux's exer? tions, a treaty of alliance has been signed between Spain, France and Russia, with the object of counteracting the Anglo-Ger? man influence in Morocco. Other papers mention the matter, but without affirming that the treaty has been actually signed. "The idea of a permanent rapproche? ment between FYanee and Spain is cer? tainly in the air, and may in time assume considerable practical importance. It had its origin in France's role in the peace ne? gotiations and reports of friction with England over Spain's military activity in the neighborhood of Gibra'tar. Admiral Schley's Illness. Washington, August 23.?The Navy De? partment received a dispatch to-day from Rear Admiral Schley's wife saying that in her opinion his illness was not serious and that he would probably be around in a few days. With this reassurance, there is felt to be no occasion for substituting another name for that of the admiral on the Porto Rican military commission, un? less his illness should become more grave. The illness of Captain Evans, of the Iowa, has been reported to the Depart? ment, and in this case, as well as all others where officers are sick after their long ser? vice, leave will be granted and every op? portunity granted for recuperation. The Schoolboy Dally. And the bullies in the school. I guess there will .always be bullies in all schools. There were somemean ones in the kindergarten. The boy bully was always a coward, of course; a bit otf a sneak as well, cringing to the big boys and brutal to the little ones. In the presence of the teacher he was half crazed with terror, crying out: "What have I to do with thee?" But the weak pupil, whom he could handle, he mauled without mere}-. It was his na/iur>e tobe J brutaL Rather than not have anything to worry he would torture a hog, even though he had to live with the animal to get at him.?Robert J. BurdeMe, in Ladies' Home Journal. BRAVERY IN AN ARMY. VeULT ComcH to Most Men, Dot It H Overcome?The I'crccntn?c of Cowards In Small. The question of the comparative pro? portion of really brave men in any army will probably never be deter? mined. Great officers on the continent keep their knowledge on that subject rigorously as a professional secret, and assume as a certainty that all sol? diers are brave. They know very well, however, that they are not, and when , confidential will admit, as Marshal Von Moltke once did in public, that with a great number it takes discipline and I severe discipline, too, to induce them ? to face shells unshrinkingly. Ameri? can officers have been known to ac? knowledge that of their men, who are l as brave as any in the world, 20 per cent, would run away if they could, and in every army, even ours, which a man enters only of free will, there is a certain proportion who literally cannot overcome their fears. They are stricken with a sort of paralysis. The proportion is not high in an}- army, the majority, if in health, being able to do their duty, and having intense motives to do it; but neither is the proportion high of those who literally feel no fear. There are such men, who do not quite understand what the emotion is, as there are also some who have in extreme danger a sense of pleasure, which sometimes not only quickens their blood, but distinctly increases their intellectual force. This is said to have been true of Gen. IMcton, who, though a hard, rough man, was an "angel when bullets were about," and was undoubtedly true of the first Lord Gough, who had a trick, thoroughly disagreeable to his staff, of seeking points of full exposure to the enemy's fire. The Immense respect paid to such men, In all armies, shows, however, that they are exceptional, and, on the whole, we believe that the opinion of the first Sic Henry Havelock is verj nearly the truth. The writer once had an opportunity during a discussion on the utility of the Victoria cross of cross-questioning that famous general on the subject, and never forgot his reply. "In my experience," he said, "in any British regiment there are al? ways a hundred men who would storm the gates of hell, 800 who, if they dad it, would follow in, 100 who want to skulk in the ditches, and about 30 who actually do skulk there or elsewhere." ?London Spectator.

Expci-m- of Worthless Reunirn Would In Almost Every Instance Bullil Good RuudH. Some montha ago the people of Sac? ramento county, Cal., voted to issue bonds for road construction purposes; but, owing to n possible defect in the luw, the matter is in the courts for adjudication. Not long nfter, San Mateo county voted on the same ques? tion nnd decisively rejected i(. It ia said that this result indicates "that the people generally are not willing to bond their credit for the purpose of constructing good roads." and that If improvements are to be made in the highways, some other method of providing means for it must be found. In an exhaustive address on the sub? ject, Engineer J. It Price, of the state highway commission, recently consid? ered (he matter in detail and showed what could be accomplished if the money that Is annually spent in worth? less repairs should be devoted to building permanent roads. In this re? spect, California may be tnken as a sample of nearly every state, the same considerations applying to nil. Mr. Price found that every count} spends from $30,000 to $30,000 In repairs each j"enr; that for 11 yenrs prior to 1S?5, the total was $17,059,717.04, or a yearly average of $1,628,701; but, as there arc other expenditures not in? cluded in these figures, he considers the annual outlay to be $2,000,000. and '.here are no improvements in the roads to show for it. If this outlay is continued for 40 years, the amount expended would reach $S0,OOO,O00, and this sum would pay for the construction of 10,000 miles of good mncadam, costing $5,000 a mile. There are in the state about 44,000 miles of roads, and to macadam? ize one-quarter of them, or 11,000 ROAD AT RIVERSIDE, CAL miles, would satisfy the commercial needs of the state; hence, within 40 years, not only could this enormous amount of macadam be laid, but enough money be left over to maJ;e the necessary repairs. Hard roads con? structed in this manner would coma slowly, but they would come in time, and it might prove that when the people began to realize what they gained from them, they would find it worth while to issue bonds in order to hasten the improvements. The practice of erecting wooden bridges, culverts and drainvvays, Mr. Price finds as wasteful as present methods of road repair. On the basis of the expenditures of the lust eight years, the outlay for the next 10 years would be $2,547,000, and this for re-' pairs alone, and yet with this sum he says he can "build stone, concrete or sewer-pipe drains and steel bridges; where necessary on all the roads in each county named." To illustrate tins, "masonry can be constructed at a cost of from $G to $8 per cubic yard; concrete for about the sume. Scwcr-pipc can be laid in place for from GO cents to $1.75 per lineal foot, according to the bore of the pipe. A three-foot culvert with three foot walls will contain .03 of a cubic yard per running foot; a four-foot cul? vert three feet high, .07 of a cubic yard; a five-foot culvert, four feet high, 02 of a cubic yard, without wings; a five-foot culvert, with five-foot side walls, 1.13 cubic yards.

Melon Vlnert In Rows, I Most people are so used to planting melons in hills that they deem this the only way. But very successful melon growers think that making a very slight ridge and planting the seed fn a row pretty closely together is a bet? ter way. So soon as the vinos begin to ran their tendrils clasp others, and this keeps them from being blown nbout by winds. By making the ridges eight or more feet apart the cultivator can be kept running through them un? til the vines spread out and occupy the whole of the vacant space, which they will surely do before the sum? mer is ended. If the \ incs appear to be too close together in the row the poor? est may be cut out without leaving a vacancy, as would be t!:e case if they were planted in hills. The Average of iiutier. Trof.
