The relative advantages and disadvantages of the two routes tare set forth in the published summary with apparent im partially and may be stated as follows 1 Cost of building Nicaraugna 130000000 Panama 8253000000 2 Cost of operating Nicaragua 1 3T 0000 a year more than Panama 3 Time needed for building Nicar agua eight yours Panama 10 years 4 Time needed for crossing isthmus i Nicaragua 413 hours Panama 12 hours 6 Time needed to reach isthmus Nicaragua two to three days Iless C harbors needed at Nicaragua aK ready exist at Panama 8 llealthfulness of location Nicar agua lair Panama bad As regards the cost of building the Commission estimates the Panama route at 251000000 because the French Join mission has been asking 109000000 for the work already perforniea The work done says tho commission is not worth over 100MOOp If the Ptuama com pauy reduces its figures to 40000000 tho Commission would apparently figure the ant of tho two routes at about the same amount Tho Coaiuittee paints out teat the twenty one hours saved in crossing the Panama route would still leave tho more northern route an ad vantagej Qf rom one to two days for all ships bound from our Atlantic and Gulf ports to our ports on the Pacific In the published summary there is no ciUmato of the cost of building the harbors necessary for the Nicaragua route The announcement published with tie summary that Commissioner Morison favored the Panama route is pronounced by Admiral Walker the head of the Commission to be entirely wrong The Commission unanimously recommends that the United States build the new route projected through Nicaragua rather than attempt to complete the old one through Panama on which the French company spent nearly three hundred million dollar with such disappolntin results 3 1 =

understanding between the Governments of tho United States and Germany as to a settlement of the tatters greviance against Venezuela which shall not infringe upon American rights there is a cer11m danger now developing iu the sltuaMbn This danger is contained in the necessary assembling of German and American fleets in Venezuelan waters for the purpose of adequately protect ing the interests of their respective Governments Four German warships are already on the scene of action The United States Government is prop erly dispatching a formidable gqnadrua to confront the German ships and pre

the last session ACKNOWLEDGES TO 1000 ExGov Bradley who in our opinion is one of the ablest and most honorable of the Republican leaders in Kentucky acknowledges to receiving 1000 for making campaign speeches in Kentucky in 1890 and in a published card denounces certain Republican leaders as CUTS for hounding him because they did offer and give him this amount The fault is really not in Gov Bradley accepting this money but it is in the commercial spirit which has obtained in politics these latter days which says tout this and that must be supported by the people because there is money in i Ot course the same spirit will affect the public speakers who preach this doc trine The whole thing has been reduced te a money basis patriotism llrTe of country love of principles have all everybodyIn this same campaign for which Gov Bradley is being so bitterly hounded no no doubt hundreds and perhaps thous ands of lesser rights were being paid out of the campaign fund It is unto tunate but none the loss true that now adays when the people listen to the glowing periods of political speakers that they are compelled to think that none of such periods would be proclaim ed except that 1000 or more dollars were back of it This is a great a grand a glorious country but patriotism an real love of country is the back ground The dollar controls everything If the speaker sells his

idea that cold or win t 4 weather is the proper and most profitable season for converting corn into pork Acting on this idea they pay little heed to beginning the process which is to change their lean and rest fatteninghogsand grow fast until the frost and bit ing winds suggest that autumn is rapidly waning It is strange too tha I such d state of affairs should exist Ij among some of our intelligent farmers writes G W Clark in the PrairieI Farmer All experiments made in t intI warm ormoderate weather the con Ij galDIa iI wtathtcriof and in some instances all the four consumed serves as a mere mainte nance ration giving no appreciable gainThose who begin fattening their hogs with the earliest of their nett corn crop as soon as it is in roast ing ear using stalks as well as ears find it wonderfully eftlencious in the animals improvement giving as large if not larger returns than when more maturedand thereby enabling the feeder to have the benefit of 30 or 4C cays feeding in the most genial season which would be lost if he waited for the corn to ripen or become fit to gath er for cribbing The juices in the green cornstalks leaves and ears seen especially adapted at that time of thr year to the health and vigorous growth of the hog and although making what might appear too bulky a food for fat production it puts them in the best possible condition for finishing offto the grente t advantage later on more matured gain In some carefully conducted experiments made by some of our best farmers it has been shown that iit takes onefourth or more of the feed to keep the hUll warm in cold weather and exposure in all kinds of stormy weather It is very important that much of the fat teeing be done In autumn that is usu ly done in December and later Early pork in market

rye and clover or rye and barley the hogs can be turned into the first one until the pasturage there is short then turned into lot 2 where they will strike fresh supply and fatten rapidly If clover is sowed after the hogs are taken from lot 1 and put in lot 2 growth will begin in lot 1 and by the time all the lots have been pastured it will be ready for further grazing L C Morris in Farm and Home

desert from either the army or the navy is not the easiest thing in the world and even when accomplished the culprit lives in daily fear of being recaptured and sentenced to a heavy term of imprisonment Therefore the devices employed by some deserters are as ingenious as they are exciting although they cannot always be said to be crowned with success says The Regiment For sheer audacity the case of an Irish soldier who deserted ina south const town some years ago would be hard to beat Just at that time a number of desertions had Oc curred in the neighborhood and the authorities were therefore unusually sharp to prevent further offenses of this nature But the man in question was dissatisfied with soldiering and having a number of friends in the town who were disposed to help him and being possessed of an unusually large modicum of pluck resolved to delay his return to civil life no longer One morning early he slipped out of barracks and made his way to a friends house without being seen Ar riving there he shaved off his mus tache and dunning a policemans uniform boldly promenaded the main streets of the tcwii He was of course missed in the barracks and knew that the surrounding country was being scoured in hopes of finding him On one occasion his sergeant came up to him and asked him if he had seen or heard anything of a missing man and he of course replied that he had not but he would keep his eyes open For more than a fortnight he preserved his disguise without it being penetrated even by the police themselves and then he calmly left the town when the hue and cry had subsided some what Nevertheless his enterprise came to naught for he was arrestedft trying to work his passage back 10 Ireland h Scarcely less audacious was the rtiIe employed by another

Dec 2SThe gather ing of German warships j the vicini mtythe same locality of many American British French and other foreign war ships is directing attention to the immense naval demonstration Ger many is about to make against Venezuela It is said to be probable that the firt move by Germany will be tho establishment of a blockade of Venezuelan ports so as to prevent the introduction of food products into Vene tuela and thus starve the besieged Into submission Venezuela it Is said is entirely dependent upon the outside world for its supply of corn which is a staple among the Venezuelans The Germans are expected to occupy one or nore of the main ports of Venezuela probably La Guaira or Maracaribo On the part of Venezuela it is semi officially understood that President Castro has made known that he Is prepared for any eventuality There is complete silence however as to the defensive measures Venezuela Is adopt ingThe reliance of Venezuela appears to be on the practical difficulties Ger many will encounter With reference to German occupation of one or more ports it is thought to be likely that Venezuela will rely on barrassing the invaders The fresh water supply of La Guaira and Maracaibo Is drawn from tho interior streams and lakes and these are expected to be cut off The interior of Venezuela is regarded aa safe as it is said that it would take at least 200000 German soldiers to mako headway through the wild and uneven country against guerrilla tac ticsThero appears also to be much rear slice on the part of Venezuela in the sentiment and sympathy which can be aroused within the United States when an European invader is actually operating on American soil and Venezuela issues a decla ration of war A German block ade Venezuelans declare will prove quite as onerous to American British and other foreign shipping as it will to the internal Interests of Ven ezuela and these shipping interests are expected to appeal to their several governments There are a few hopeful signs on both sides that at the last moment a clash may be averted The German minister to Venezuela is still at his post and there is some hope that he may bring about a settlement The outlook for a cash settlement however is rather meager since Vene zuelas treasury is empty and all of the Venezuelan officials are on half pay POWDER MILL WRECKED Iff iIJr The Force of the Explosion

flay lie Learned from UoactliiK of Ueulindatl tbe IUn iij 4 of Syrlu Ilumunlly Eu cour Ked LCopyrfght 1901 by Louis Klopsch N YJ While this discourse of Dr Talmage rebukes arrogance it encourages humanity and shows how the evening of lire nmy be brightened The text is 1 Kings iO 11 Let nut him that hrddh m his harness boast himself as he that imtteth it off Harness is the obsolete word for ar mor It means harness for the man out harness for the beast harness for battle not harness for the plow The i uicient armor consisted of helmet for the head bnsnsti hite and fchield fur the luatt greaves for the feet The text makes comparison between a Luau enlisting for some var and a veteran rt turning the oio putting on the ar mor and the other putting it oil Ueiihadad the king of Syria thought lie could easily overcome the king of Israel Indeed the Syrian was so sure of the victory that he spread an ante btilum banquet With 3 kings he was celebrating what they were going to do There were in all 33 kings at the ca rousal and their condition is described in the Bible not as convivial or stim uated exaltation but drunk Their jiiUed and bannered pavilions were sur rounded by highmet tied horses neighing and champing and hitched to char iots such as kings rode in Jenlindad Binds otlieers to the king of Israel de manding the surrender of the city saying Thou shalt deliver me thy silver and thy gold and thy wives and thy children and afterward sends other oflicors saying that the palace of the king will be searched and everything Benhadad wants he will take without taking Then the king of Israel called a council of war and word Is sent back tu litnhadad that his unreasonable de jnaiu will be resisted Then Icnhadad fit nus another message to the king of sraeimessge full of arrogance and bravado practically saying We will destroy you utterly 1 will grind Sa iriaiia into the dust but there will nol be cult enough to make a handful for each one of my troops Then the king of Israel replied to Uenhadad pray t ally saying Let me see you do what you say You royal braggart you i might better have postponed your ban quet until after the battle instead of spreading it before the battle You liuzxa too soon Let not him that gird ethon his harness boast himself as he that Inttteth it off An avalanche of courage and right m sneis the IsrueHtish army came down on Benhadad and his host It was a hand to hand fight each Israelite hewing down a Syrian Benhadad on horseback gets away with some of the cavalry but is only saved for a worse defeat in which 100000 Syrian lufan try were slaughtered in one day Now we see the sarcasm and the epigrammatic I power of the message of my text sent bj the kuigof Israel to Uenhadad Let not him that girdcth on his har ness boast himself as he that putteth it oiL All up and down history we see such too early boasting Soult the marshal of France was so certain that he would conquer that he had a proclamation printed announcing himself Jingot Portugal and had a grand feast prepared for four oclock that after noon but before that hour he tied in ijrryminious defeat and Wellington of the o fici rriig hust sat down at four oclock at the very banquet the marshal of France had ordered for himself Charles V invaded France and was so sure of conquest that he requested Paul Tovius the historian to gather together a large amount of paper on which to write the story of his many victories but disease and famine seized I upon his troopers and he retreated in dismay So Benhadads behavior has been copied in all ages of the world It will be my object among other les sons to show that he who puts oil the armor having finished the battle Is more to be congratulated1 than he who begins First I find encouragement in this subject for the aged who have got through the work mid struggle of earthly life MyI venerable friends if you had at 25 years of ape full appro bation of what yqu would have to go through In the thirties and the forties and the fifties of your lifetime you would have been appalled Fortunately the bereavements the temptations the persecutions the hardships were curtained from your sight Wit h more of less fortitude you passed through t disIappointmentto recount the Divine help tht sustained you At 20 or 30 years of your age at the tap of the drum you put on the harness Now at GO or 70 or SO you are peacefully putting It off You s would not want to try the battle of life over again So many of just your startlugfngly wit has much equipoise of charac ter as you hind have made Complete shipwreck that you would not want again to run the risks Thotingh you can look back and see many mistakes the next time you might make worse mistakes Instead of being depressed over the fact that you are being count ed out or omitted in the great under takings of the church and the world rejoice that you hove a right to hang up your helmet and sheathe yoirgword and free your hands from the gantlets and your feet fronvthe boots of mail At the soldiers home in the suburbs of this city Iuften admire the peace fund contented looks of tfce vener t4e heroes as they sit under he trees f iI or go in and out the tine above that our government has appropriately provided for them They are not longing for other Chapnltepecs They do not want to undertake another South Mountain Their foot does not ache to caalrrtman They re not longing for the hardtack of the soldiers breakfast along tbol Chicfcahominy They have no desire for another ride in the ambulance to the field hospital When the Spanish war broke out they sometimes wondered if their rheumatic knee would allow them to keep step in a march and if their sight was good enough to see an advancing foeman and if their ear was ulert enough to hear the command Change But for the most part they are glad that tlure is no more war for thrill So let nil of the aged in peace with Clod through the bcsscd Christ cultivate contentment and thank the Lord their Sedan has been fought and the war is over Let not htm that girdeth on his harness boast himself as he that putteth it off There are oM farmers who cannot do one more days work What harvests they raised in ISTpT Uhey knew the rotation of craps as well as they knew the rotations of the seasons Un der what blistering suns they swung the scythe and the cradle Through whatdeep nows they drew

selfsacrifices that the world knew but little about test aged man Let the buys du the shoveling and thrashing and cutting and sweating You have put the harness off and do not try to put it on again Then there are aged physicians wont tragedies of pain and accident they have witnessed How much suffering they have assuaged how many brave battles they have fought with lancet and cataclysm How ninny fe sera they cooled How many broken bones they set How ninny paroxysms they quieted Molt ninny anxious days they passed when they knew that hu man lives depended upon their skill and fidelityI They drove back deathI from many a cradle Instead of Lireomin hardened at the sight of suffering their sympathies deepened as with agvd Dr Valentine Moll when standing before his students in clittical

theta willing to be ant of practice Before long they wilt hear tilt benediction of Him who said 1 whs 1und ysr visited Me Again 1 learn from Benhadads behavior the unwisdom of boasting of what one is going to do Two sties sages had he sent to the king of Is rael both messages full of insolence brImmllabIwith the spoils of the victory he isi going to achieve that afternoon He takes it for granted that Samaria will surrender lIe gives command for the capture of some of the inhab itants of Samaria who are approaching saying Whether they be conic out for peace take them alive or whether they be come out for war take them alive But behold the fugitive king in frightened retreat be fore sundown Better not tell boast ingly what you are going to do Wait until it is done You do well to lay our

is skillfully I and impressively arranged collection of all styles of armor worn be tween the thirteenth and eighteenth centuries suggesting 500 years of conflict cuirass and neck guard and chin piece and lance rest and gauntlet and girdle and mailed apron You see just how from head to heel those old time warriors were defended against sharp weapons that would cut or thrust or bruise and allowing them to come out of battle unhurt when otherwise they would have been slain 0 ye soldiers of Jesus Christ when the war of life is over and the victors rest in the soldiers home on the heavenlyI heights perhaps there maybe In the city of the sun a tower of spiritual armor such as incased the warriors for Christ in earthly com bat Some days e may be in that armory and hear the heroes talk of how they fought the good fight of faith and see them with the scars of wounds forever healed and look at the weapons of offense and defense with which they became more titan conquerors In that tower of Heaven as the weapons of the spiritual conflict are examined St Paul ma3 point out to us the armor with which he advised the Ephesians to equip them selves and say That is the shield of faith That
