Never throw mud at a thing you don't like; perhaps others may appre ciate It. Nothing can restrain the juvenile mind from thinking that the sultan of Sulu must be a lulu. It is only in his matrimonial rela tions that the sultan of Sulu is re ported to resemble Solomon. The girl who can speak seven lan guages is less sought after than the girl who can hold her tongue in one. The man who returns from the Klondike empty handed escapes con siderable annoyance at the hands of his relatives. American capitalists have Just pur chased two islands off the coast of Cuba. Some people merely want the earth. Others get it. Dewey still declines to talk. When the admiral once puts an embargo on speech the interviewer needs a ready Imagination to supply the deficiency. The Washington Tost sagely remarks that the reappearance of Mrs. Luetgert would make things decidedly uncom fortable for the officials who prosecuted her late husband. It would seem probable that her position would be much more uncomfortable than theirs. Eleven New York aldermen have been ordered sent to jail for contempt of court, to say nothing of the little matter of a $100 fine per alderman. When those misguided city, fathers emerge from their darksome cells they will probably have a great deal more respect for the law and the opinions of the judiciary than has ever before been the rule in any aldermanic body. The rising tide of industrial produc tion and of business prosperity ought to mean also an improvement in the general condition of the people. And according to Hradstrect's, during the first six months of 1S99, "voluntary in crease in wages proved to be the rule rather than the exception," involving an addition of many millions to the in come of working men and women. This is pleasanter reading than reports of the strikes, some of which have been bitterly contested. France is watching the dispute over the Alaska boundary with considerable interest, as it bears a close resemblance to her own controversy over the New foundland shore. In both cases a col ony without power of its own to make its will respected insists on Imposing its will in the matter in dispute upon the country upon which it is dependent and upon which the burden of fighting must fall in case of war. As the Frenchmen say, this position is anom alous. It is difficult to suggest a rem edy, however, unless England is pre pared to take a firm stand and place Imperial Interests before colonial at the possible expense of losing part of her empire. Germany claims that militarism i3 beneficent, inasmuch as the raw re cruit is, in his years of service in a standing army, educated, disciplined, and then returned to society and to in dustry a far more Intelligent and ef fective person than he was before, or could have made himself. This, to some degree, is true. The standard of manhood ought to be raised and is raised by the military system; but sup pose the government gave all men a training simply for industrial purposes and put them into trade schools instead of camps? A similar but far higher end would be attained, In such a pro ductive potentiality as has never yet been realized; and it seems as legiti mate to train men for national prosper ity as for national defense. The report of the French Millers' association on the European wheat harvest of 1839 Indicates that the drouth In the Odessa and Nicolaief dis tricts is so disastrous that the total Russian wheat production of 1899 must show a falling off of 33 per cent from average years, and will be as bad as In 1897, which was one of the worst years on record. In Germany wheat Is satisfactory, although slightly less so than In 1898. In Austro-IIungary the estimate exceeds last year's produc tion by 60,000,000 hectolitres.. In France reports from twenty one de partments show a marked increase In the wheat area, and the harvest, al though Injured by storms in the last fortnight, will slightly exceed that of 1898, but should the present fine weath er be succeeded by rain during the next three weeks there will be a serl ous diminution. Familiarity which oversteps good manners lately received a gentle re buke at an English military bazar. An officer, attracted by a lady at a stall, remarked that a certain article near her was very pretty. "Yes," was her reply, "my mother sent It."

The officer did not wait for the fancied ar tide. A Whole Regiment of News Items From Michigan Towns CAPTURED FOR BRIEF READING.

Iloem and IlrltUher Near to War. The prevalent opinion in England is that President Kruger is playing a great game of bluff at Pretoria.
