The president ha* been exercis ing his veto, which has distill some of the leaders of congress, but a.niong all classes there lias been a recognition of the logic of the president's position in re fusing to become a party to "loading" an appropriation bill with matters of general legislation. The president arid congress are not disagreed regarding the army appropriation biii proper and.from any viewpoint it should not car ry matters foreign to its legit-i mate make-up.

The illustri I ous William Jennings Bryan while jin Chicago, said that lie was there "to get a pieci for his pa •per." Evidently that part of officials that did not go to Chi cago. has lia'd little time for any thing else than to rea'd these most interesting "pieces" written h\ •I 1 1 peo ple lias been brought, to light sine.e the days when men sai'.l "let us slaughter the buffalo am we will take the tallow ami hide and let the earca-ss go", than that concerning the great 'des truction of the herring fish of Alaska. Only twenty per cent of these herring are utilized as food yet the enormous amount of 11. 000,1)01) pounds of this fish is considered one of tile food products of the seas in Scot-led off the land, Holland anil Norway, is con-ian'd their Mr. Bryan and other reporters. Keeping the Floors Clean. I Outside of the police force Used I in maintaining the house office building, it appears that the sal jar ins for this building amount to '$35.M-i2 a. year. Forty charwomen are employed and receive the which'magnificent sum of ^-JO per month great each fov cleaning the dirt brush shoes of congressmen, visitors, from the tiled verte'd into oil and fertilizer, the floors of the great marble build oil being used as the basis of the ing.

Outside of the congress- spending its millions of 'dollars for tile purpose of increasing the fish supplies in all American wa ters, yet a. concern in Alaska, known as the Alaska Oil and Oini tio Company is making Its millions by utilizing herring as a product for fertilizing, and the Company has been able to secure govern ment protection bv paying to the I'nited States one and two-tenths cents per barrel of 200 pounds, amounting to about two-hundreths of one cent per pound. Mr. Wil lis, congressman from Ohio, who brought out the points in connec tion with this enormous destruc tion of herring, also showed' that in catching these fish for the pur pose of manufacturing fertilizer, the Alaskan concern did not m".ke any particular selection of fish, and if salmon or any kind of fish were brought in with the rest in tlie nets, that they were ground in to fertile c-r find became a part of the wicked waste. Mr. Willis said that fishermen went for her ring and ad'ded that "when tlicy la.id their nets, obviously there is no way of getting out an injunc tion to keep other fish from get ting in the nets, and what other fish they get. and they get sal mon, they use in the same way. men's salaries and expenses there is nothing but economy in the way of wages paid to the people who inhabit this structure. One reason for this is that in order to take care.of the ever-increasing 'demand from the different districts, the number of employees have been unreasonably increased, and tIn* wages disgracefully cut down. Four Battleships a Year. The four battleships policy of A'dmiral Dewey as against the no battleships policy of the democra tic caucus places in sharp con trast the positions occupied by the advocates of these different pol icies. The admiral points out that even the two-battleship pro gram would not enable us to hold our present rank among the naval' powers, and he adds that we will be "Standing still at best, while the expansion plans already put :.n operation by the others so.»n would east us far down the li.t. Standard Barrels and Grades for' Apples. With nice red apples selling on! the streets of Washington atj seven cents per, :t is no wonii 1 that congress has deemed it time! to prevent the continued fraud and deception in apple business, an'l a measure has been passed which provides standard *ized barrels and methods ot'packing which are intended to 'discontinue the prac tice of primes at tin* bottom of the barrel, culls at the middle arid the good. big. red. round apples at the top. Mr. Moore, of Penn sylvania. declares a pertinent truth in that the ''consumer's interests is almost entirely in the fac that lie wants r-vei'.'e the contents of the barrei as they are repre sented to him.' 1 A Nice Little Printing Office.

And yet there are people who say that the printing business is not a val uable industry. Bureau of Public Health. The American MedicaL Associa tion has been diligently fighting for twent.v-five years to establish a national bureau of public health, and might have succeeded long ago had it not been for tin fact that it lia'd never released one iota in its determination to 'domi neer such a bureau if it is ever created.

In northern Nigeria there la a tree, called in scientific language Oclmum virlde, which mosquitoes cannot toler ate. Two or three plants kept In every room and placed along the veranda are enough to shut out trespassing Insects. A mosquito gently inclosed In a leaf of the plant will lose consciousness In a few seconds. The bruised leaf has at scent not unlike that of wild thyme and eucalyptus. The natives ot north-j era Nigeria prefer an Infusion of Its' leaves to quinine In malarial fever both for themselves and their children.
