Japan refuses to back down and Russia refuses to back up. Other wise, the situation in the far East is unchanged. Every time an array officers is praised, a largo number of people will insist that General MUeshas boon in sulted again. Flour prices have advanced again on account of the war scare. It . will soon be necessary to put more dough into a barrol of flour than you get out of it. King Peter of Scrvia wants to re sign on account of his health. He probably remembers his predecessor's health suffered by remaining on the throne too long. There are two reports from Con stantinople. One is that the Sultan is paying his debts and the other is that he is losing his mind. If the first report is true the other will be accepted without question. Several Chicago theatres have been literally wiped out of existence as a result of the Iroquois tragedy. Not less than a thousand actors and chor us girls were thrown upon the city penniless, and philanthropist have taken a good many of them into lux urious homes. Mr. Bryan announces' tl at lie learned a lesson while in Kuro.o which all Americans might learn. He discovered, in fact, that the le publican AprwTotitatives of this gov ernment abroad were alert and court eous men, and that they were doing their duty as Americans and not as partisans. ''Beginning with Am bassador Choate," he said, "and all along my journey I met a most ad mirable body of men, representing their country." Inoia Republicans members of the Gridley Club are entitled to much credit for the very successful way in which evary detail of the banquet was wrought out. All were com fortably seated and the menu and service by the ladies under direction of Ed. R. Iiailey, were admirable, while every part of the largo hall was taxed to its fullest capacity. The Belding contingent who were pres ent over sixty strong, extend the glad hand to the brethren in a hearty shake over the magnificent success of the function. Senator Morgan introduced a bill providing for the anexation of Pana ma to the United States, "the rights and property of Panama resting in the United States without reserve." The bill appropriates $10,000,000, as compensation to Panama for its f ses sion; places $15,000,000, at the dis posal of the President for the com pensation of Columbia and appropri ates 140,000,000. for the purchase of the property of the Now Panama AC ou " I htve made a most thorough trial of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral and am prepared to say that for all dis eases of the lungs it never disap points."

Tfcu business ot the court I carried out at midnight In the ope air; the absence ot a tenant Is punishable by, a fine of double his rent for each hour he falls to bo In attendance". No artificial light except a firebrand Is permitted and the proceedings are recorded by means ot one of the em bers of the brand. The roll of four teen tenants Is then called over and answered to in a whisper, and then they kneel down and swear allegiance Very many years ago the lord of the manor, after an absence from his es estato, was returning home by night On the way he accidentally heard some of his discontented tenantry plotting his assassination. Thus warned, he returned home by an unex pected route. Then he ordered that each year his tenants should assem ble at the same time to do him homage around a post which he erect ed on the spot where the plotters met. Well, It Wasn't Hie Fault. When the young man and the maid entered the electric car for a ride down town every seat had an occu pant. The young man calmly "mo sled" to the front and sat down after seeing his companion seated . beside another young woman. Of course when the conductor came along the young man paid two fares and Indi cated, as he thought, the fair maid In the rear. "Faro, please," said the conductor as he reached the maid, and tho lady be side her handed out her change! "Young man paid your fare," said the conductor, refusing the offered nickel, while he took a fare from the maid. Was the maid mad? Slightly. And the young woman with whom the maid sat and whose fare cost her nothing, must have smiled. When tne young man and the maid got off the car the former got but perhaps that Is Irrele vant. It is safe to say that his nickel will cart the right girl next time. Brockton Enterprise. His Ambition. The Hon. John A. Fowle of Dorches ter has beon a very patriotic man throughout his life. . When living In New York some years aro, ho attend ed n Fourth of July entertainment In a public school on Long Island. Mr. Fowlo presented tlu school with a large engraving of Lincoln, and the presentation speech Incorporated some Bound advice to the boys. He extolled the qu ilitle.s of IncoTn, sketched his life briefly, and urjred them to follow Lincoln in patriotism, honesty and the fine qualities that Immortalized, him. "Some of you boys may yet be a governor or a president," he said. Selecting a lad of 7 years, with an In teresting face, he asked him to stand up and tell what pursuit he would like to follow when he grew up. , The child bashfully rose, put his finger In his mouth, and after a little encourase ment from Mr. Fowle replied, "I'm going to dig clams."

Cftemlcal Matter la the tame In All the Twinkling Light, hi concluding a valuable series of articles on the "Chemistry of the Stars," A. FowUr writes as follows: "Notwltbsti tiding the divergence ot opinion on some points, there Is a general acquiescence la the view that the matter composing the stars Is essentially the same as that with which we are acquainted on-, the earth. "This leading Idea is admirably ex pressed by Sir William and Lady Huggln in the following passage In their 'Atlav of Representative Stellar Spectra': 'As the conclusion of the whole matter, though there may be no reason to assume that the propor tions of tho different kinds of chemi cal matter are strictly the same In all stars, or that the roll of chemical eleraeuts Is equally completeln every star, the evidence appears to be strong that the principal types of star spectra should not be Interpreted as produced by great original differences of chemical constitution, but rather as successive stages of an evolutional progress, bringing about sueh altered conditions of density, temperature and mingling of stellar gases as are suffi cient presumably to account for the spectral differences observed, even though with our present knowledge a complete explanation may not be forthcoming.' "Investigations are still In progress In many lands, and it Is not too much to expect that sooner or later the story of celestial evolution will be completely elucidated." Knowledge.
