Tlio Rovernment of a peoplo or country by unotlier peopto or country not contlR uous ls at the best expcrlmontiil and tein Vnrar.v. Such a t'ondltlon may last a Ioiir tline, but It caniiot be iiormaiient. Wlth tralnliiK and devclopment It Is the Clod Klvcn human imtme of all jieople to wlsli to Koveru themselves and not owe alte Klineo across a sea. Ile would havo been a (srcat jirophrt wlio could have foretold only half a dozon ears aRo that we should have a ureiit ariny lu Cuba, th.it tlie M.ind Mi ild be turncd over to us, and we, nfler givltiR her a few frlendly Iessons In our nietlincls, fihnuld peneeably surrender tho rlehest and llnest of all Islands to her own peoplo, who. I am nlad to say, are fulllllltiR our most saiiiiulne oxpeetatlons of their cnpaclty for self Kovernmeiit; or that wo should be nov ernliiK I'oito ttlt.'o wlth no mllltary foire on this Island of nearly a mlllloli jieople. oxeept two little battallons of native troops wearlliR t'ncle Sam's uiilform! Or that we should have a Kreat army and n eruel war In those Islands on the other slile of Iho earth, and that we should lu so short a tlme tirltiB nbout a ranrc poace ful condltlon than had over been known tlicre, wlthdraw fotir-llfths of our army, nnd for tlie most part dopond on Iho na tive conslnlmlary to malntaln penco and order; or that we shotild, liecause wo h.ive a'sumod the responibillty of a wni iil powi r. have an army In C'hlnn nnd take part in prntoctlnR tlie Interests of clvillstatlon the world oier. llae we not. Mr I'resldetit, ln this short tlme Klvon the lest answer pnislble to tlie senllment of the toast, "Ojr m-wly taken-up responslbllltles to the world." May wo so e.irry oiirselves that tlie world shall be the better for our havliiR as siimed them! To repeat: In my vlew Iho Rovernment of a country across tho seas ls tontatlvr and cxperlmental at tho best. KiiRland has found It so across even tho little Irlsh sea; for she has trlod evorythlnR under the sun In tho way of force and ehleane, and at last seems to be travel Hiir toward the pollcy of this sentlment. Sho will Ioiir reinemlHT her oxperience wlth few Hberty-IovliiR country Duteh men Is South Afrlca. Sho has learned much slnce her llrst preat mlstake In 1775. Wo shall make some mlstakes, for we are human, but 1 belleve wo shall be actuatod by the splrlt of this toast, and that wo shall so carry ourselvos that tho world will be better for our hnvlnR n.sumed theso responslbllltles. Go slow should be, and I belleve will be, our pollcy ln this new lleld." The senator read a letter from Gov ernor Taft in which he explalned how pa tlence and Justlce were necessary for a proper Rovernment of the islands, and eontlnued: "One thlnR we havo In this short tlme done there that Is a revelation to that people: A Vermont lawyor has estnbllsh od courts there whoe declslons are not subject of barRaln nnd snlo an unheard of thliiR in that land Ite has, too. s tabllshed a Hnanclal system that does not re(ulre two dollars to make one Rood one. Vermont has had, and Is hav Iiir, and Is to havo. a Rreat part In the nffalrs there. Two of the tlve commis sloners, one of them vice-Rovernor, are Vermonters. At the most tryliiR tlme the three most Importnnt olli-ers In the mlll tary adinlnlstratlon. the chlef nuartor master, commlssary and provost mar shal, were Vermont veterans, your eom r.ides. Vermonters. above all. will be slow to belleve that our purposes and Rovernment there are not for the Rood of the Roverned. The lotiRer I llve, and the more I see of other eountrles and people, the Rlail der 1 ani th.it I was born and llve In New KiiRland. The safety of our Rov ernment depends, ln my own vlew. more than anythtnB olso upon an IntelllRent mldille class. The wlse man sald, "He movo far from me vnnity and lles; rIvo me nelther poverty nor rlehes; fied me wlth fuod eonvenlont for me.' New KnR land was happy alMive all other lands ln her early settlement by the mldille rlns of KiiRlanil. homoRenooiis ln charactor an.l IntelllRenco, nelther r'.ch nor i)or, and wlth an ubiilltiR falth In tlio savltiR Rraco of liard work. They hero at oneo e.-tab-llsheil ln the town mei tliiR the purest demoeracy the world has ever seen and other instltutlons ln tlie same sjilrit of intolllRent solf-Rovernment. These old New KnRland Ideas hae happlly por meated and loavened the wliole body polltle of the country and Rlven snape to our Instltutlons. The safety of a rov er'iment of tlie people r"ts not wlth the rlch, who may seek persnnal aRRrandlze ment and to perpetuate their wealth and power. nor wlth a. iclass so poor as to lack IntclllRonoe and Interest In public nffalrs, but wlth the safe mlddle class. more numeroiis In our lands than In anv other, who cannot be iKiiiRht or brlbed, and are too IntelllRent to W fooled 'all the tlme.' as Lincoln sald. rnfortunale ly ttils class Is too rare in the warmer eountrles of tlie world. It Is needless to dlscuss why this Is so. Whether duo to cllmate, whleh does not stlmulate to hard labor. the nature of their produetlons, laek of educatlon, their raee and blood. or to all of those and other causes eom blned, the faet remalnx. Our Insular pos sesslons furnlsh no exceptiim to this roii eral rule. But let us linpe, and we have Rood reason to do so, that our ndmlnls tratinn mny be si.-h ns to brliiR them up to a safe self-RovernlnR basls. and that this responslbillty may W shlfted to their shouliler.s as fast as they bhow them solvos lltted for lt. If I could make the fuliire ReoRraphy of tlie Amorlcan I'nlon, I mlRht be a lit tle unccrtalu nbout the northorn bound ary, whether to make It C'anada or the Arctlc ocean, preferably the latter ln God's Rood tlme. Franklin sald ln 17S3 it must como some tlme, nnd he was a wlse man. But the other Hnes would be Ilxed east by the Atlantlc, west by the I'u cllic nnd south by the republle of Mex ico and the RUlf. And within those boundarles may tho future Rovernment of our country remain Its executlve leplslatlve and judlclary. nnd the votlnR populntlon tliat makes that Rovernment." U. S.

Often Thc Kidneys Are Weakened by Oyer-Work. Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Blood. It used to lie cousidered that only urinary aud bladdcr troubles were to be irnccu 10 tuc Kiuiieys, but now modcrn science proves that nearly all diseases have their beRinniiig in the disorder of these most iinportant orfjans.

The followlng oxtract from n pcrsonal letter recently recelveil by it Brattleboro rosldont from an Amerlcan now llvlng In Belrul, rIvos tho ,elearost statcments wo have seon about the troubles nt Belrut, tho causes for them. nnd tho rcasons for sendlng Amerlcan warshlps there. We havo wondored durlng tlio past week how mueh you know of tho sltuatlon In Itelrut and how much you were nlarmcd for us. Wo eoncludod that you probably know moro tlinn we dld, nnd that you were probably wolt aware that there was no rl"k for Kuropeans or Amerlouns. Tho trouble has been brcwlng here for u long tlme. In 1840, when the Libanon was set apart as a soparate provlnco under. Huropean proteetlon, Belrut was formed Into a soparate Wilayet under dlrect Turklsh rule. Slnce Mint tlme fno Chrls tlan populatlon of the elty has Rrown stendlly untll now lt conslderably exceeds that of the Moslems. All tho trade and all tho wealth are In the hands of tlio ('hrlstlans and the Moslems are naturnlly Irrltntod and Jealous. For the last leu voars lt has been the poU;y of tlie Sultan to hanB und klll tho Chrlstlaiis wherever they are stronR. and In aeeord wlth this pollcy ho sent out n U'aly who for a lotiK tlme has been sow- ItiR the se-ds of fanatleNm and strife. He has b?en a eonsummale scoundrel who has been in open leaRUe wlth smugglers, eounterlelters and desperadoes and who has stolen u fortune of 100,000 ($5nn,iKXl) tnit a ho has contrlbuted large sums to the Sultan and worried the Chrlstlans, he has been a favorlte. He has renewed the fanatlcal orders of Dervlshes that had entircly dled out nnd has encouraged and nliettrd tho asaslnation of Chrlstlans on susplcion, and would relense tliem only upon jiayment of large sums by their frlends. FlndliiR that they could Rct no justlce, the Chrlstlans took matters Into thclr own hands and killed n Moslem In return for every Christlan slaln. This has been RnlnR on for months nnd the rosult has been a deadly feud between Moslems and Chrlstlans who formerly dwelt ln peace toRether. Whenevor there has been an uprlslnp the Molems have been defended by the Turklsh soldlers nnd the Chrlstlans have been nrrested. The Moslems have carrled nrms openly whlle the Chrlstlans have not been permltted to nrm nnd mat ters have been RettlnR more and more ln tolerable for months. Many of the rlch Christlan fnmllles have been emlRrated to ER.vpt and the poorer people to Amer lca. No Christlan has dared to ro out at nlght nnd there has been a vcrltable rclRn of terrnr. A week uro, two un offcndlriR Moslems were murdered under Pdoullarly atroclous circumstunces by so called Christlan desperadoes in return for slmllar murders of Chrlstlans and the Moslem populatlon was thoroughly arous- ed. Attaeks were mude upon the Chrls tlans ln vnrious places and Mr. Maggall- sen, tne Amerlcan vlce consul, was llred upon, probably on the supposltlon that ln was n native Christlan. The drngoman of the German Consulate was attacked, tho Itallan Consul was robbed and the forelRnors then saw lt wns tlme to take a hand In the matter. Mr. Ravendul, the Amerlcan Consul, telegraphed to the mlnlstor nt Washington nnd the cynher despatvh was mlsread In some way so as to say tnat .MaRRallsen was shot, lntead of "shot at.". This led to thc Immedlate dlspatoh of two warshlps which arrived Sunday. Sept. lfi. Tho promptness of the Rovernment and of tho eommanders of tlio vesels Is most praiseworthy, for lt Is all that saved the elty from anarchy. rsoi nnoiner war vessel of any other for- olpn iower has yot come and we feel proud that our country, thoiiRh the most dlstnnt, has been able to apiH'.ir tlrst unon tho scene. Tho d.iy the shlps arrived tho Moslems ittempted to carry out a plan. probablv wlth the conlvnnce of the Waley, for the slaURhtir t.f the Chrlstlans In two of the native quarters, but tho Chrlstlans got wlnd of tho matter and defended them selves so well that the Moslems were eompelled to retreat, although about IS Chrlstlans were killed. Admlral Cotton then Informed the Waloy that unless he restorod order nt once he would land nuirlnes with tho new rapld-llre guns that shoot lfJ lmllets a mlnutc nnd would take matters Into hls own hands. Under the Intluenee of this threat tho Moslems luleted down and there has been a lull in the storm. Tlie Chrlstians, however. dld not feel safe and all who could get uvay lled Into the Libanon. where, under the Chrlstlans' governor, they would be safe. Three thousand people have como to Alleh nlnno nnd the hotel Is uncomfort nbly crowded. (Alleh Is a summer resort In the Libanon much frequentcd by Ku ropeans and Amerlouns, nbout 25 mlles from Belrut on the Belrut und Damascus road.) The poorer people have left every- tiuriR nnd have camped over the llne ln the Llb.inon dlstrlet and they nre fed by provlslons sent ny tlielr rlclier co-rellR-lonlsts from the mountalns. All buslness has been Mispcnded by the Chrlstlans and the elty wears the appearaiwe of an Anierlcan Sunday. None of the Furo penns left town, ln fnct, most of them that were away returned to look after their Interests, 'jut they went armed to tlie teeth and many black looks were east upon them by the Moslems. No one was uttacked, however, nnd they seem to have ln-on ln io daiiRer at any tlme. Meanwhlle the Consuls havo united ln the offort to have the Waley removed and on Friday the 11th Inst., their efforts wero crowned wlth success, for un order eame from Constnnilnnple orderinR hlm to como thero and uppolnthiR the Waley of Damascus, an excellent man, In hls place. 'lhis act restored tranquilllty nt once and there seems no prospect nt pres ent of the return of disorder. Our war vossels will remain for some tlme ln theso waters and Amerlcan Interests will 1h looked nfter. , Admlral Cotton Is n flne man und is de termlned to ro to the bnttom jif the mat ter. Kvery day, for hours ho takes evl denice from all sources nnd the mlsslon nrlos und college professors have been on frlendly torms nnd have been of great servlce to hlm. Good Mr. Ravendal, our consul, has worked Ilke n dog nnd has manaRod our nffalrs splondidly, Tlie re movnl of tho Waley for whlch everybody has been praylng, has been n distinet Amerlcan trlumph whlch has ralsed our nntional prestlRe enormously. t'p In the Libanon, tho people tumble over one nn other ln their effort to treat us Amerlcans well, and storles nre already current that we Intend to occupy Syrla and dellver them from the yoke of the Turk. Every Ijody seems to feel that wo nre the only peoplo who aro froe to llsten to tho dlc tatcs of humanlty nnd If help is to come It must come from us, Presldent Roose velt seems determlned to pursuo a vlRorous pollcy and I thlnk he will make tho Turk stand around as ho has never lieen mado to do before. At the hotel last nlght we dlned wlth Presldent How ard Bllss of tho CollCRe nnd Mr. Rlchnrds, tho Brltish consul nnd hls wife. After wurds we sat on tlie balcony nnd lnter Jlr. Ravendal nnd Flng Ioult. Hussey of tho Brooklyn jolned us, We heard a very thoroiiRh dHdiission of the sltuutlon. Mr. Rleluuds Is n Rood man nnd ls on the Post' of terms wlth all the Americnns. Uist Sunday he cnmo nenr calllng on Admlrul Cotton to protect Brltish nroner- ty nnd It Is nlmnst n plty thnt It was not necessnry, ns lt would have been n grace ful nct of lnternntlonul comlty. Ah we sut on the balcony looklng out over tho beantlful inoonllt bay, we could see tho two Amerlcan cruslers llashing slgnnls nnd turnlnR their searchllRhts on the elty nnd It gave us a great feeling of security to know thnt they were thero. Tne Amerlcan nt home mny not cnro much nbout wnrslilps but the Amerlcnn In tlie Orlent Is mtghty glnd to havo n few of them crulslng nbout nnd ls sure the ex pendlture of money pays, Mother "I hope that young man never klsses you by surprlse."
