theMetbodistehurchto an excellent sermon on Pastoral eloquentdivineLam an enthusiast on female beauty and hence any striking specimen of natures work in this line is sure to attract my attention My question was elicited by observing a bewitchingly beautiful girl brush past me casting up on me from a pair of big brown eyes an interrogatory glance as much as to- NY who ae you That answered my companion is Miss Josephine daughter ef one of our oldest families and the belle of Hickman- I was smitten I must get acquaint ed with that girl and we passed on I ought and obtained an introduction I took a notion I wanted Miss Josephine for a wife Did she have a lover or lop era No doubt plenty of them I could He that all the young fellows were spooney on her But this did not de ter me from pressing my suit I court ed her fast and furious regardless of time and money I had plenty of both fortunately for the emergency I was Boon on terms of familiar acquaintance escorting her to parties and social func tion lor which Hickman is famous It was Josie and Harry with us in a very short time I took her out ridingS often in one of those stylish rigs H Pollocks the accomodating liveryman of Hickman who conducts one of the test livery establIshments in the town and whose friends and customers are legion I promenaded with her on the main street of the town spending my money for anything that would con tribute to her pleasure I took her into thatdepot of Good Things Caruth er where I fed her on the very nectar of the gods She was an enthusiast on confections and I bought dainty can dies and chocolates and lots of sweet delicacies with foreign names occasion ally indulging in more substantial viands such as oysters delicate fruits always to be found at Caruthers After several weeks of this sort ofI declaration in which I was untiring in my devotion and in which I think Josie took some pride in showing me off as her latest admirer I made up my mind I would pepthe question so one beautiful afternoon I sauntered out to Josies home on the hill I went early because I wanted to walk with her under the trees I felt that it would be heaven withthe trees around me and plenty of space where nobody could hearlme in case I made a cobble Josie received me cordially and we sat around in the parlor and talked in rambling fashion for an hour Irattled away like the boy in the graveyard who whistled to make the ghosts believe he wasntscared Atter a while I propos ed we take a walk Josie was indul Rent and putting on her hat we strolled forth intothe cool shady woods that lay jut back of the orchard I tried to be sensible as we walked along remark ing upon the beauty of things in gen eral and the pleasure I felt in being per mitted to eajoy natures lovely sm esinII such delightful company but I must confess I was nervous and no doubt incoherent I seated Josie on a decaying I log and was just preparing to fall onI one knee and pour out my souls adora I tion when a confounded rabbit scram J bled from beneath the log right between Josies feet almost uptripning me inII its haste to get away Josie emitted a piercing scream and jumping about five feet and sped away toward the house I dont thing really she was much scared but the incident gave her a good ex case to break off any love avowal That rabbit spoiled my plans for that ocea lion and I vowed eternal war on the rabbit tribe I went back to town feel iaa rather low spirited BowlTer1 made up my mind that IJJ would locate IB Hickman and the nextI day I rented an office and proceeded to iostal myself

of the Nicarangua Canal bill by tho House of Representatives by an almost unanimous vote so early in the session looked to the uninitiated like rapid progress toward the accom plishment of a great enterprise which has occupied the attention of the world for several generations As was said at the time however it meant scarcely anything It was hardly a pointer to a decision between the Nicaraugua and Panama routes Both political parties were committed to a canal of some sort and men of both parties were quick to got on record and there was no test ycte between the two proposed routesThe Canal Commission has just made a unanimous report to the President in favor of the Panama route The canal on the Panama route is partially dug and the work is now offered to the United States for forty millions of dol lars which is regarded as dirt cheap if all the necessary concessions can be transferred with the ditch and a clear title can be given It should not be difficult for the United States to deal with the Government of Columbia and of course we must look out for in the transfer Tno Panama route is so much than the Nicaragua and is defectsII much simpler as engineering that many of the prejudices may have to fall On the Nicaragua route there must be many locks on the Panama very few if any The distance from New Orleans t San Francisco or from New York to km Francisco would be some shorter by the Nicarau gua than by the Panama but the differ t ence might not be considered great enough to stand against the difference in cost and the greater difficulty in nav igation Prices

Jcof palms near the river Jordan had become so popular in the time of Elisha the prophet that more accommodations were needed for the students The classrooms and the dormitories must be enlarged or an entirely new building constructed What will they do Will they send up to Jerusalem and solicit contribu tions for this undertaking Will they send out agents to raise the money for a new theological seminary Having raised the money will they send for cedars of Lebanon and marble from the quarries where Ahab got the stone for the pillars and walls of his palace Xo the students propose to build it themselves They were rug ged boys who had been brought up in the country and who had never been weakened by the luxuries of city life All they ask is that Elisha their professor and prophet go alongwith them to the woods and boss the job They start for the work Elisha and Ms students Plenty of lumber in those regions along the Jordan The sycamore is a stout strong tree and good for timber Mr Gladstone asked me if I had seen in Palestine any sycamore tree more beautiful than the one we stood under at Hawarden I told him I had not The sycamores near the Jordan are now attacked by Elishas students for they must have lumber for the new theological seminary Isuppose some of the students made an awk ward stroke and they were extem porized axmen Stand from underl Crash goes one of the trees and an other and another But something now happens so wonderful that the occurrence will tax the credulity of the ages so wonderful that many still think it never happened at all Ode of the students not able to own an ax had borrowed one You must remember that while the ax of olden time was much like our modern ax it differed in the fact that instead of the helve or handle being thrust into fMketjm vires9nit + hIu otthenx vfas fastened oV the handl by a leathern thong and so it might slip the helve A student of the seminary was swinging his ax against one of those trees and whether it was at the moment he made his first stroke and the chips flew or was after he had cut the tree from all sides so deep hat it was ready to fall we are not told but the ax head and the handle parted Being near the riverside the ax head dropped into the river and sank to the muddy bottom Great was the students dismay If it had been his own ax it would have f been bad enough but the ax did not belong to him He had no means to buy another for the kind man who had loaned it to him but God helps heIRsthroughsoul and in this eaSe it was Elisha Who was in the woods and on the Tiger bank at the time He did not see the ax head fly off and so he asked the student where it dropped He was shown the place where it went down into the river Then Elisha broke off a branch of a tree and threw it into the water and the ax head rose and floated to the bank stoopdOnlerty Now you see the meaniug of 4ny text The iron did swim Suppose a hundred years ago some one had told people that the time would come when hundreds of thou sands of tons of iron would float on the Atlantic and Pacificiron ships Southllmptonfrom Francisco to Canton The man making such a prophecy would have been sent to an asylum or carefully watched as incompetent to go alone We have all In our day seen iron swim Now if man can make hundreds of tons of metal float I am disposed to think that the Almighty could make an ax head float What says some one would be the use of such a miracle Of vast importanceThose the ministry They had joined the theological seminary to get all its advantages They needed to have their faith strengthened they neededI everrthing God takes notice of little things that there is no emergency of life where He is not willing to help Standing cn the banks of that Jordan those 1 students of that day of the recalledI ax head had their faith reenforc d and nothing that they had found out in the classrooms of that learned in stitution had ever done more in the wayof fitting them for their coming

Furthermore in that scene of the text God sanctions borrowing and sets forth the importance of returning I do not think there would have been any miracle performed if the young man had owned the ax

and the ax head should fly the helve that every hinuerment may some time turn out advantageously as the accident by the river Jordan which seemed to finish tile young students capacity to help builll the new seminary resulted in n splendid demonstration of the power of Elishas God to help anyone who helped himself No ax that was ever wielded has wrought so well as that ax the handle and head of which parted j Notice also how God is superior to every law that He has made even ij the strongest law of nature the law of gravitation The stick that Elisha threw into the Jordan floated but the ax head sank By inexorable law it must go down into the depths of the Jordan yet without so much as a touch the hard heavy metal sought the surface There it is the floating ax head What a rebuke to those who reject miracles on the ground that they are contrary to nature as though the law were stronger than the God who made the law Again and again in Bible times was that law revoked Witness the scene on the banks of the same Jordan where in after time the ax head sank and rose Elijah stood there wearing cape of sheepskin when there was n mighty stir in the air and a flashing equipage descended Elijah stepped into it and on wheels of fire drawn by horses of fire he rose Fifty men for three days searched the moun tains to see if the body of Elijah had not been dropped among the rocks and picked at by birds of prey but the sich was in vain The law of gravitation had been defeated Do not feel lonely because your nearest neighbor may be miles away because the width of the continent may

the Party In Power linn In the Phil ippiiies Something It In Un- ablei 1 I to Handle r i Evidence from the beginning to the present time is cumulative and convincing that this nation has made one of the greatest blunders of its existence in dealing with the Philippine Islands Their people were fighting to throw off the Spanish yoke just as were those of Cuba yet we helped the latter to independence and forced the former to the condition of a colony without rights save as granted by the United States government While discussingj the bill to provide rev enue temporarily for these oriental possessions Congressman Hepburn admitted that he did not regard either the Filipinos or Cubans as capable selfgovtrnnient and charged that the democratic party forced the administration against its will to de clare the independence of Cuba T o approved political leader ever made a more damaging admission as against his own party says the Detroit Free Press It was in control of every branchof the federal government and responsible to the country for all its acts Yet he says that it was coerced by the minority without either legisla tire or executive power to enforce its wishes There could be no more unqualified confession that the party placed in power and vested with repre sentative authority is not able to Son trol and has in this instance placed iitself in a position where it is forced tto the ridiculous subterfuge of making a scapegoat of a minority that is abso 1 lutely without power save in the rigid to protstIs our Philippine policy are driven At itempt at Its enforcement has resulted iin a series of grievous mistakes In the outset we declared to the world that the Monroe doctrine is a dogin themanger doctrine No foreign power must extend its control on this sIde of the world but we may seize a jwhole archipelago on the other side The props are pulled from under the high moral stand on which we rested the doctrine It must here her be up heid by brute force The claim that we took the islands iin the interest of eivilzntion is too old shopworn and hypocritical to bear discussion This is not the age of the church militant crusades and armed devotions The age Is worshiping at the shrine of commercialism taut even here we have overdone the part The controlling element of selfishness at home WoOs not taken into ac count The fact that the sugar hemp and tobacco trusts had to be reckoned with was not considered We were go Jnffto expand our commerce and thus enhance the value fif our resources Contemplation of the outcome is pitiable Our shipments to the islnndsare made up largely of what we send to the 70000 troops over there purchase price transportation and the cost of distribution paid by taxes collected frQm our own people Instead of inviting trade with these people we ap proach time point of prohibition fixing the duties upon their products and I then mnka fine assumption of generosity in telling them that we shall turn over to them what we make in spite of our best efforts to assure against making anything Our political insHtiifir s are in no sense adapted to a policy of coloniza tion and the fact becomes more ap parent daily Our constitution was made for a free selfgoverning people and does not in a single sentence or sentiment contemplate the govern ment of a dependency It is being violated in the spirit and the letter It does not sanction a single vital step in our colonial policy Its sole support is an arbitrary course of legislation by congress and a shifting majority of one in the supreme court PRESS COMMENTS o When the trusts took President McKinley in hand he recanted his be lief in the plain duty of the United States and signed the Porto Rico tariff bill which congress thrust at him Is President Roosevelt getting ready to imitate the complacency of his prede cessor Boston Post The necessity of a reduction of taxation to divert the unneeded sur plus accumulating in the treasury to legitimate channels of business is more apparent than ever In spite of liberal if not extravagant expendi tures in the month of December the treasury surplus for the month amounted to 9740000 This is at the rate of nearly 5120000000 annually and it gives fresh point and force to the argument in favor ofsweeping tax reductIonPittsburg Post The countrys business men are not all tariff barons who run the government to eat up the people The tar iff question is coming in sevenleague boots and the republican statesmen of the present day dont seem to see it or if they do they have that indiffer ence to danger which sometimes char acterizes the drunken man They are intoxicated with power and the long submission of the people The day of reckoning always comes though In this particular case it is close at hand Cincinnati Enquirer When the Dingley tariff was ar ranged its authors provided in itameans of qualifying its most repulsive features by providing for the negotia tion of reciprocity

VVorlc to Shape lieRlNlatlon to Their Own End Recent dispatches from Washington have stated that the delegations JIIm certain states have united in op osi tion to any law which may admit Cuban sugar free of duty to the mar kets of the United States The movement is stated to be in the interests of the cultivators in those states of beet sugar says the St Paul Globe On December 3 last the Cuban com missioners addressed a communication to the president of the senate ond the speaker of the house in which they submitted the proposal that Cuban molasses and raw sugar up to Xo 16 of the Dutch standard should be admit ted free to the United States and all other Cuban products at half the rates of duty on the same commodities ex acted from the most favored nations In exchange for this they declared Cubas willingness to admit all Ameri cas products to the island at half the rates now prevailing on American products admitted to other countries under the favored notion clause this bythetary governor under whose direction the question might be submitted to the peoplefhe further that a special act miht be passed by congress establishing such a reciprocal tariff arrangement because the delay would he too great in the existing exigent situation in Cuba if it were to be curried out through the medium of a formal treaty after the formation of the Cuban government- There would be no objection to such an arrangement on the part of diplomatic because the Cuban republic was not in existence at the time of the ne gotiation of the other most favored nation treaties and because such treaties intend that the privileges granted under the favored nation clause shall only refer to gratuitous privileges and do not cover privileges granted on the conditions of a re ciprocal advantage such as is offered by the arrangement suggested- It is evident that private and sec tional interests will use their utmost efforts to prevent the passage of such a law or of any law which will carry out to its logical and moral ful fillment the policy which underlies our intervention between Spain and Cuba The allpotent force behind all these interests will be the sugar trust and the present administra tion like the last will find itself con fronted by the necessity of taking back water on the pledges which it has made If Roosevelt has the fiber In his makeup that he is credited with having he will withstand the ef forts of all the concentrated interests and will force the hand of con gress in that respect If he has not or if the republican majority in con gress itself is not able to make good the party pledges then the United States will be convicted before the ingloriousa course of conduct which if it is pur sued until Cuba is safely launched on the dangerous waters of nationhood will reflect to the enduring honor of this people MARK HANNAS CONTROL Where the Ohio HONK Get fib Power to Dictate onilnatlonn to Suit HlntNcU A word or two will suffice to bring out the almost complete mastery of party machinery which has fallen in to the hands of the national commit tee since it became a continuously active body and took to itself such new and great powers says Hollo Og den in Atlantic When the chairman now calls to order a national conven i tion he is really facing a large num ber sometimes a majority of dele gates who are there because he willed them to be there To call the convention has in fact come to be pretty nearly the same thing as deciding who shall be among the called This has especially been the case with Mr Hanna and almost all the republican delegates from the south They have been peculiarly his progeny for eight years past When he first began to look about for a profitable field in which to invest the money he had raised to nominate Mr McKinley for the first time it was to the southern states that he turned lie bought Reeds niggers in even a more wholesale way than that in which Senator Sherman had accused Gen Alger of buying his in 1S88 Since then in the nature of the case that colored brigade has been absolutely under Mr Hannas command it They are naturally his creatures and the sheep of his pasture What he does so sweepingly with them he does in a less degree and sporadically but still effectively with the delegates from other Sections Large numbers stand ready to do his bidding They vote as he prays The result is to give him enormous power in dictating nominations in advance and in molding the convention like clay to his hand The situation in congi s seems to be that unless a compromise can be effected favorable to Admiral Scbleys vindication and which shall wipe out the slight put upon Admiral Dewey the naval ring will be completely r hauled by a congressional investiga tion Perhaps that might be the best possible result of the whole controversy The naval ring is badly in need of an overhauling and the public in terests would be subserved by a thor ough investigation wholly apart from
