made itself felt in every step of the brave fight that San Francisco has so far made unsuccess fullyIf anything is left to start on the work of rebuilding will be shortened If nothing is left the work will be slower but it will nevertheless be undertaken and accomplished Great in itself great in its calamity the pity and admiration of the people of a great country will give to San Francisco every encouragement in the way of sympathy and money The city of New York has already given 1000000 to match the million voted by Congress Cities of the South like Charleston and Atlanta have given 5000 each Louisville will give 10 000 Greater cities like Chicago Philadelphia Boston and Baltimore will give hundreds of thousands Men of wealth are giving generously of their individual means Even such

the country has recent financial and industrial de velopment been so marked as in the South The agricultural and commercial activity and general prosperity of the South today as shown by carefully gathered data transcend the statistics of the en tire country thirty years ago No other section has made an ad vancement during the past quarter of a century that has been quite so phenomenal The South today as compared with her con dition at the close of the Civil War presents such rapid strides in material and civic develop ment as are recordednowhere else in the history of nations Her 25000000 people are alive to her growing interests and de mands and astir with the new life that springs from an effusion of possibilities All the pent up enthusiasm of this favored land seems about to berst forth in one mighty current of substantial and economic progress In agricultural productions the South has never had a rival in this country The Northand East have been able to boast of their manufactories and com merce and the West of its mines and timbered and grazing inter ests but in the products of the soil the fertility and climate of the South have placed her easily at the head of the American pro cession from the earliest day of settlementBut is not here Last year the South mined 70000000 tons of coal 9244000 tons of coke produced 42495000 barrels ol oil and made 3100000 tons of pig iron Many a nation has grown vain over a mineral pro duction not half so magnificent She has over 225000000 of home capital invested in cotton mills alone her annual lumber in come exceeds 250000000 while her farm products every season reach the dazzling aggegate of 1750000000 These are empire building figures No sane man even prompted by rankling jealousies and sectional prejudice can turn up his nose in the face of cold facts and impartial fig ures The course of empire is southward Every year sees a constant stream of energy and a corresponding wave of develop ment steadily pouring in that di rection The Nation cannot blind itself to the superior opportuni ties and munificent resources of the South Her rich alluvialsoil salubrious atmosphere soft cli mate and wealth of natural ad vantages combine to make up a whole approaching the incarna tion of the ideal Yet with all this the South has been content with the conscious ness of her own intrinsic worth and his neither courted nor count enanced flirtation with other sec tions She has even been modest and charitable claiming not her own But in courage she has not been lacking Hers has been a conservative loyalty a fealty that has adjusted itself to the soil that gave it birth and has shown its teeth only when trampled upon But new conditions are confronting her The demand for more positive and aggressive move menincreases with the passing years and the voice of her re sources and latent possibilities that so long have cried out for development is heard no longer in vain There is every reason to believe that the South stands on the threshold of an industrial and commercial development such ntandithatlead oD as she has Qn dominated the entirecmuitry m the vast and splendidproductions of the soul i

ger of the left hand as the wed dingring finger is regarded by most people as the blind following of a custom which was inau gurated by whim or chance but that it has a deeper significance than mere sentiment and a scien tific cause for its selection ap pears from what was said by a member of the Philosophical So ciety the other day in a desultory discussion of the subject The third finger is the only one where two principal nerves belonging to two distinct nerve trunks meet The thumb forefinger middle finger and one side of the third finger is supplied from the radial nerve while the other side of the third finger and the little finger are supplied from the ul nar nerve At the tip of the third finger a union of the two nerves takes place so that this finger is scientifically typical of

Republicans of New York State are divided in the opinion of what to do with Odell the chairman of the Republican state committee The faction that follows the President demands that he be thrown out

conservative Democracy of New York is one of the possibil ities of the present political situ ation Mr Bryan recently con tributed to one of the magazines an article on Socialism in which he proclaimed himself an indi vidualist and contended with his characteristic zeal for the indi vidualistic theory of civilization Such papers as the New York Times were enthusiastic in their prais of Mr Bryans position pronouncing his statement of the case against Socialism as one of the ablest yet presented and on that will be reason of Mr Bryans wellknown radical position prove most effective in checking the rising Socialistic tide The Democratic Club the most respectable of the Tammany or ganizations whose membership includes the business element of the New York City Democracy is said to be strongly in favor or the nomination of Mr Bryan In Democratic Club circles the opinion is said to become unanimous that Mr Bryan will sson be recog nized as the logical candidate of Democracy in 1908 The Jeffer son Day dinner soon to be given at the WaldorfAstoria is expect ed to be the occasion of the for mal launching of Mr Bryans Eastern boom He is to be referred to as a conservative and some semiauthoritative an nouncement is to be made to the effect that he is ready to discard the old silver issue What was regarded as radicalism when Mr Bryan led the Democratic party according to the new view which is said to be prevailing in the Democratic Club is now consider ed conservatism since the radcal of today have gone so far be yond anything proposed by the Democracy of 1896 Mr Bryan it is said will make a statement of his position as soon as he re turns from his Oriental tour and it is expected that the Democratic Club will give him agreat pub lic reception This in view of the developments of the last two years is not an unnatural situa tion According to the standards of today Mr Bryan is really a conservative Lexington Harald MEDICINE AND THEOLOGY The following story was told by John L Mahin in a recent address of the Rev Dr Newell Dwight Hillis now of Brooklyn when he was pastor of Central church Chicago Dr Hillis had a number of doctors in his Chicago congrega tion I t was a fashionable church but it didnt get Dr Webster He didnt go to church at all but had the reputation of making good in his practice Mrs Hillis was taken sick one day and became so very sick that her husband didnt want to take any chances so he sent for Dr Webster He came took care of Mrs Hillis and she re covered Dr Hillis called and said to the physician Doctor I owe you a great deal I would like to know the amount of your bill I will pay you 50 on ac count today and the rest as soon as I can but I want to know the total amount so that I can make arrangements to do so Dr Webster looked at him for a minute and his characteristic reply showed his appreciation rDr Hillis who made good in his own line for he said I will tell you what I will do I will keep Mrs Hillis out of heaven

mark the hazer as barbarous and unworthy a position in any class in our great schools Generally hazing was not of vie ous intent but of mere levity yet it grew in prevalence and and degree until it resulted in the loss of life and seriously reduced the standing of certain schools that permitted it to be carried to the danger point In view of the course of college hazing it seems strange that guying is carried to such an extent in base ball games which in real ity is but a form of hazing The fact is that base ball is highly interesting and is a popular sport one in whit- occupations h all classes and all find pleasure in wit nessing but the excess of Yin is fast divesting this sport of it real charms and if kept up and permitted to grow its intensity and rediculousness will eventual ly make it a game for the rough only It seems that each season brings a larger number of ball hazers and the later their advent into the ring of the disgus- tthe more force they give to the brawls and the more disgusting Ing ephithets are used This paper takes the position thatI a visiting team is an invited guest and deserves courteous treatI ment and in so far as it fails tois receive it stygmatizes the comu nity as pandering to the rougher element and not mindful of the comfort end pleasure of their visitors Guying has no good Connected with it It doesn tend tov create love and

It was always pleasant for him to look back through the vista of tune upon the felicities of his earlier years His home was one where weary hearts couldrejoice where his placid nature made cheerful

wife and young son arrived here yester day They were guests at the Grand Hotel in San Francisco on the morning of the earthquake and after the first shocks escaped to OaklandI to be awake when the first shock came said Chief Owens The plaster began to come down around us and the furniture of the room was thrown aboutMy wife sprang up from the bed and a moment after she had quit it a heavy dresser was thrown violently upon it It would surely have killed her had she remained there I quickly got my wife and child to the street Going back I got our things together and took them down where my wife was I saw fire burst out a few blocks away An engine came down and hitched to a hydrant but seemed to be doing nothing I asked the engineer what was the matter and he said there was no water I saw enough in those minutes to convince me the city was doomed- I made my way back to my wife and got away She wanted to go out to Golden Gate Park but I told her that I believed the city was going and that we must get to Oakland We arranged to catch the first boat and got over and saw the rest of the fire from a distance Market street when we got out of the hotel was in a fright ful state Wires were down naked and halfnaked men and women were running along the streets cattle and horses were mixed up with the crown and the scene was one of indescribable confusion The air seemed to be a sort of bluish yellow To make matters worse there was the most peculiar smell in the air The buildings were leaning to gether in a crazy fashion and debris was falling everywhere I distinctly felt two heavy shocks before we left for Oak land and after we got over to the Oakland side there were two moreAs we left the Frisco side I couldsee fire in all directions People whom we met had come for many blocks running to the water front half nakedand with bare feet At that time it was no easy matter to get through the streets for the stuff thrown about by the shock The sight was the most horrible I ever witnessed and I have seen many fires Some persons we met were cut about the face and hands by falling glass and others had been hit by stones None of them seemed to know where they were going but ran about in every direction f PEACE IN THE PHILIPPINES It is said that not long ago a War Department official was ap proached by a man who was thinking of moving to the Philip pines to enter business- I would like to know the status of things there from a reliable source the man said t Is there now a condition of peace Wellnotexactly everywhere the official admitted Could you give me an idea as to when peace will be established Not offl and but you can get the census report and figure it out for yourself the official said somewhat bitterly We estimate that it requires a mans weight in lead to thoroughly pacify hunt and the Quarter masters office can furnish you onlsblpmen f s wrwt ALL TILE MONEY ON EARTH Let us see how much actual cash there is in the pocketbooks of various nations and under stand by comparison how rich we really are The total stock of money in gold silver and uncov ered paper in the whole world amounts in round figures to 12000000000 In the United States the total stock of money amounts to about 2000000100 Hence we have in our own purse about onesixth of all the cash of the globe These figuresand thisisa fact which must be emphasized do not represent the wealth of nations Far from it These figures represent merely the available hard cash Divide this hard cash of the earth among the inhabitants thereof andeach man woman and child would have 10 But divide the hard cash of the United States among the people thereof and each of us would have 25 And here is one respect in which the people of a foreign country would have the better of us individually Were each nation to divide its cash among its own people each living human being in France would have 35 or 10 more than each person in our country under similar circumstances Mean while the divided cash of Great Britain would give each Briton only 18 in Germany the cash per capita would amount to only 17 Russia 8 and Japan S3 while in Cuba each person would get a 2 bill Of the worlds 12000000000 in cash 2000000000 are right here in the United States And onetwentyfifth all the cash in gold in the world is stored in New York alone This gold this symbol and synonym of wealth comes like all things else from the ground from mines Here again we lead all nations for we ourselves produce onethird of all the gold of the earth as we pro duce onethird of all the silver f Our chief contributors to this r product are the mines of Colora do South Dakota California Idaho Montana Oregon Arizona New Mexico and Alaska Consider merely Cripple Creek As under a magicans wand that region has in fourteen years de veloped until it now covers at least 130 square miles with many cities and towns connected one with another by rail Here is an earnest sober population en gages in the
