THE BELDING BANNER
C. It. COWDIN, Editor. THURSDAY, OCT. 10, 1901. lUTHKIt PHONIC "Why don't you write something alnjut the cigarette habit among the loys of BeldingV" said a mother to the writer a few days ago. If we could say anything that would have the least effect in checking this foul habit we would gladly and quickly do ho. We believe it increases rather than diminishes among the young lads, those from 10 to 10 years, and why is it? Boys of that age do not understand the folly and dangers of it, but where are the parents, are they ignorant or don't they care, or worse yet do they lack that parental control and government over their offspring which leaves them helpless. The teachers in our schools are doing all in their power to suppress it and the parents should wake up and do their part. A wise old gentleman says that if a young man meets a .girl with rosy cheeks who says, "I can't start for thirty minutes, yet, because I want to help mother do the dishes," he wants to sit right down on the doorstep and wait for that jewel. And he wants to stick to her like a burr to a mule's tail. She is worth her weight in gold and much more worthy of your esteem than the simpering simpleton who gads the streets solely to gad and llirt with every j'oung man she meets. Kvery man, old or young, has an opin ion of the girl that gads the streets which he always makes public. Six teen to one, such a girl will make life miserable for the whole community by her shiftlessness and by her gossip ing tongue. A girl unfaithful to her mother will never be worth a one eyed button to her husband if she ever succeeds in getting one. The girl with good sound sense, becoming mod esty, and a realization of her sphere of usefulness wins the kind of respect and admiration worth having. The President is very much in earn est in his desire to see the color lines in the south cease to define the lines of division between political parties, lie has expressed this hope to southern Democrats and Republicans, whites and negroes. With him it is one of the most important questions in our politics. McKinley, having to a large extent broken down the sec tional lines, Roosevelt desires to carry that national policy further and begin the removal of party lines from the old color lines in the south. He believes it will be a great benelit to the south, as well as to the whole country, to have the party divisions in the south as they are in the north, without regard to the color line. He hopes to see the white men of the south exercising political freedom and voting for the economic policies which they regard as best for their own business interests and the coun try's welfare. President lloosevelt hopes to see this growth of Republi can principles in the south continue, and he will give it every encourage ment he can during his administra tion. He has said to southern men that he desires to appoint only the lest men to office, and he does not propose to be conlined to faction or even old party lines. The President realizes that he has begun a difficult undertaking, but difficulties have never been discouraging to him when he. thought they were only barriers to right policy. He will be President of the w hole country and will try to wipe out the color line in politics. Hat Lire Plh. The Japanese practice refined cruelty to delight their palates. They believe that the fish called the dal Is most de licious when eaten alive. An expert Japanese carver can dexterously re move five-sixths of the edible matter from Its bones without touching a vital part. During this cruel operation the fish Is kept alive by wet seaweed which, being placed over Its gills, enables It to breathe. A Simple Disinfectant. A simple disinfectant to use In a sick room or In any room where a close, niusty or sewer smell Is noticed la to put some ground coffee on a shovel, a bit of camphor gum in the middle of it. Light the gum, which Is nonexploslvo and easily Ignited, with a match and allow the coffee to burn with the gum. A refreshing and sanitary perfume Is the result. The Tobacco Habit. Chewing tobacco Is a filthy habit. Smoking makes you so foul that you ran smell yourself. Tobacco Is very Injurious to health. Every user of to bacco tries to quit It and finds It very difficult. Hoys see their elders trying to quit, yet boys make themselves sick In acquiring the tobacco habit Atchi son Globe. Flat Maft-natea Confer.

In medl.Tval times the best perfumes were made In France and Italy, the perfumers of those countries acquiring a dexterity unknown elsewhere and possessing many secret methods of manufacture. WASHINGTON LETTER Social Cormpoodenct. ; Judge J. W. Phillips of Newcastle, Pa., who Is known as "the father of the Industrial commission," Is in the elty. lie Is here to attend the final meeting of the commission, held to go over the material and frame up the re port to be made to congress. "The commls8lon,M paid Judge Phillips, "will make Its final report to congress on Dec. 15. The law under which the commission was organized provided that the body should Investigate all manner of Industrial matters relating to the mutual Interests of capital and labor and should recommend to con gress and to the legislatures of the va rious states legislation calculated to be of benelit to both classes. The scope of the coin mission's labors has neces sarily been wide. We have gone over a tremendous field. I took up the work of securing a commission of this character In the Fifty-third congress. It was passed by the Fifty-fourth con gress, but failed to secure the signa ture of the president. Finally the bill was passed with certain modifications, such as the addition of eongressloual members. My bill originally provided that It should be made up entirely of civilians and that there should not be a majority from any party. I think It will be conceded by congress that the commission has done a valuable work." The New Chilean Mlnlnter. Don Joaquin Walker Martinez, who has been appointed Chilean minister at Washington to succeed Senor Vicuna, who recently died at Buffalo, is a cousin of Don Carlos Walker Mar tinez, a celebrated poet, orator and politician of Chile. He was born at Santiago and Is about fifty years of age. He was formerly engaged In business on an extensive scale and was a member of the Chilean congress at the time of the revolt against Hal maceda In 1801. In the provisional government which was subsequently established Don Joaquin held the office of minister of finance. He afterward threw up his position because the pro visional council of state was consti tuted without giving any representa tion to the Conservative party, of which he was a member. This action brought the other revolutionary leaders to terms, and representatives of the Con servative party were admitted to the council of state. Minister Martinez then resumed the portfolio of minister of finance and held It until Admiral Montt became president of Chile. Premature Retirements. Secretary Root has determined that army officials shall not be prematurely retired If there Is any chance of keep ing them on the active list and having them render some service to their country. In the case of a Junior army surgeon recommended for retirement by a board, which Included In its mem bership two ofllcers of the medical de partment, Secretary Hoot overruled the findings of the board and decided that the officer, who, by the way, Is anxious to continue on active duty, need not go on the retired list. It de veloped that If the officer was retired he would probably practice his profes sion, and Secretary Root finds that some of the officers retired for disabili ty thereupon engage in commercial or professional pursuits which do not tax their energies or strength any more than the discharge of military duties. Secretary Hoot proposes to make a careful scrutiny of all recommenda tions coming from retiring boards. Appointment of Arm? Chaplains. Judge Advocate General Davis of the army has decided that under exist ing statutes appointments as chaplains In the army are confiued to regularly ordained ministers of the gospel, rec ommended by the authorities of their church or by five reputable ministers. This decision was rendered in the case of a minister of an Independent creed, attached to no church, who was a can didate for on army chaplaincy. Al though strongly backed by Influential people, this minister Is Ineligible for appointment ender the Judge advocate general's construction of the law. Washington a Model. Mr. Gerard Lowther, charge d'af faires of the British embassy, has wrltttc the district commissioners, ask ing them for plans, maps, outlines and principles of the government of the city of Washington. The request may be regarded as a high compliment. In asmuch as it Is made in behalf of the proposed federal city In Australia, which Is to be established In the Im mediate future. It Is considered as probable that the beauty and the ex cellent government of Washington bave led the British authorities to con template the establishment of an Aus tralian city fashioned after the capital of the United States. The New Consul at Cape Town. William It. Blgham has been appoint ed consul at Cape Town to succeed Dolonel James G. Stowe of Kansas City, resigned. Mr. Blgham was born tn Hamilton, O., fifty-seven years ago. tte served three years during the civil ar as a member of the Fourth Illi nois volunteer cavalry and later was thrice elected mayor of El Paso. 111. tie went to Kansas tn 1875 and ha jlnce been active In Kansas politics, lervlng In the legislatures of 1809 and 1001.

An Incident at the siege of Rouen, in 1591. shows that red was looked upon as the English color, for In mentioning the death of one of the Earl of Essex's captains It Is remarked that the French man who shot him got near enough to do so by putting on the red coat of a dead English soldier. In 1013 the king's life guards, as also the queen's and Prince Rupert's, wore red coats. It Urines Her, Etc. "What do you do when your wife gets sulky and refuses to talk to you?"
