HANDLING THE NEWS. “And I am not, violating any confidence when J say that I have in my safe in New York at this moment copies ol' three speech es which Theodore Roosevelt will deliver in South America," said Melville E. Stone, general man ager of the Associaed Press, a few days ago in an address be fore the Indiana members of the Associated Press. This remark j gives an idea of one of the ways j in which the news of the world is covered. When Col. Roosevelt actually delivers tile speeches in South America, the managei.it of the Associated Press in this country will he unfilled and over the wires will go a release mes sage lo newspapers carrying the A. P. dispatches. Hefore the speeches the Associated Press will probably send copies by mail to each of Ihe A. P. newspapers. Those copies will he marked: “Confidential. To he held until released." The Associated Press enjoys the confidence of ollieials | and the general public, and is j for that reason able to furnish such a complete news service. A notable example of Ihe con-j flilence imposed in tile Associated i Press is file fact that during Ihe ! Spanislt-Ameriean war Admiral | Sampson telegraphed to Mr. i Stone the plan he proposed to follow with his fleet in attack-! ing the Spanish navy. If was big j news, hut it was not intended for i publication. To have published i it would have been to inform the j Spanish naval authorities of our j plan of campaign. Hut the in- j formation enabled file general! manager of the Associated Press | to prepare for handling the news i of the battle. ! It. is not uncommon for t lie President of the t'niled States lo 1 call in representatives of the As- ] socialed Press and inform them of what is to lie undertaken. They ! have a clean record for keeping ! confidences, and officials d ■ not ' hesitate to impart informal ion ! that will aid in keeping Ihe conn- j try correctly advised. I lie Associated Press is nun- ; partisan. II is mi the same eon- | tiilenUal relations with I Ik* Deni- j oeralir national adminislration as it was with the Republican. II serves Republican. Democratic, other parly and independent newspapers alike. II gives facts, not opinions. It oflen carries the opinions of olliers, as, for exam ple, in I he speeches of public men, but I hey are the opinions of the men piloted. Because of its uon-parl isan and careful pre sentation of the I'aels, if has be come the greatest news agency in the world.—Ex. THE WOOD BISON The reporl of the murder by Eskimos of Explorers If. \Y. Rad ford and George Street transmit ted by Gomjmissioner Peary of Regina. Canada, for an investiga tion of the Hudson Bay district, records a serious loss to zoolog ical science. The Smithsonian Institution received last year from Mr. Radfoid, who left New York City for the north in Jan uary, l!)09, the first definite evi dence of a species of bison, un known to lhe western prairies, inhabiting northwest Canada in the region of the Great Slave Lake. The skeleton and skull of the wood bison now in the Na tional Museum at Washington are the only specimens of the kind in the world. Mr. Radford killed his wood bison in a herd of 350, found in a rugged and precipitous mountain region far from any prairie, and in a part of the continent geologically (Od er I hail the prairie regions. The prairie buffalo is almost extinct. But it is probable that, by the efforts of public-spirited men like Dr. W. T. Hornaday, the few descendants of tin* vast herds of bison that once overran the prairjes of the Great West. Prior to Mr. Radford’s verifica tion of reports concerning the bison of the Great Slave Lake, Dr. Hornada.v was of the opinion that they were a northernmost herd of the familiar type of the plains. It is now the belief of all American naturalists that the wood bison is a distinct species, perhaps the ancestor of I he prai rie buffalo. The two varieties may yet have free range in the greaf national parka and may he per mitted lo multiply under the pro tective care of the civilization that all but destroyed them. The wood bison is more massive, broader and bigger in ever way than the bison of the Great West; a generation hence may witness their increase in great numbers as a proper substitute for the nearly exterminated species. Hut, it, is of importance that the rec ords gathered by Mr. Radford and his companions should lie1 recov ered, and made the basis of fur ther attempts lo win back this lately discovered a species to its place of vantage among Ameri can fauna.— Kx. Human Folly. I remarked to Dr. Skate: "I’m increasing in my weight, and it's giving me the blues, for I cannot tie my shoes, so I want a pint of pills, or a syrup made of squills, or some other kind of dope; you ! can pull me down, I hope?” All tin1 time at heart I know that I really ought lo go to the wood pile with an ax. and get down to old brass lacks. Oh, I ought to do my chores and get busy out of doors, healing carpels good and hard, cleaning up the liller ed yard, with a mind and heart at peace, thus disposing of my grease. But, instead, I trot a block, and consult the four-eyed doc, and he shakes his head and ' sighs, and he looks confounded wise, and gives me pellets labeled “Nux,” and assesses ]me three bucks. And some forty million jays are as foolish, all their days. Ills and aches would travel hence if we'd use a lillle sense. If you Have an aching foolli, have il pulled al once, good youth!
