Christmas stamp with the Kings headand the word Jul the same as our Yule on it It was not good stickerIand packages The proceeds from it were to go toward the building a tuberculosis hospital for little children It succeeded beyond all expectation four million be ling sold at an oere orhalfaconti Denmark has continued it since to maintain tuberculosis work and the sale in the native land of Hans Christian Andersen has doubled each yearIAmerica needs such a stamp but her postoffice officials issue or handle it Under cannotI ent postal laws and a of Congress would be necessary Jacob Reps himself a Dane wrote an eloquent article published in the Outlook of July G 1907 urging government action in the matter but there were too many difficulties in the way It seemed hopeless to try but at this June tion the Red Cross whichexists for just such emergencies took it upIThe Red Cross is a na tional organization with branches in each State formed to act in crises and to render aid in war pestilence and famine Tuberculosis the great White Plague is the most terrible pestilence in the known world claiming one death out of every seven The Red tuberculosisItime is one of crisis in the war against consumption Each State needs education and awakening in the subject and money for the work The Red Cross therefore postalIup mas stamp last Christmas and tried it in one State This was the little State of Del aware very small very conserv ative not given to enthusiasm and only a few stacks inl a woodland meadow herir Wilmington as a tuberculosis hospital The State as whole was ignorant and uninterested on the subject yet the stamp on the market only eighteen days before Christmas amazed every one by its sensational record Fifty thou sand had been printed to sell atone cent apiece They went in a week and then the stamp got in to Philadelphia where the Penltsylvtnia Red Cross and backed it and the NorthIAmerican gave it great Delaware schools sold it the aware Womens Clubs took DelI the newspers gave columns the department stores banks drug stores and hotels sold it It was sold in the corridors of the Wilmington Federal building by permission of the government though not the postoffice The presses in the last few days be fore Christmas ran day and night to supply thq demand People used the stamps on packages and letters and business firms on cor respondence Nearly four hun dred thousand were sold and nearly three thousand dollars cleared from the small unobtrusive pen stampWith money the Delaware Red Cross first brought an edu cntional antituberculosis exhibit visitedIdays The clubs granges city boards teachers clergymen la bor unions state officials were all specially invited on special days and whole State was waked up A nurse was sent to the Sanitarium and a free dis pensary supplied with milk and eggs drugs and a visiting nurse for the consumptive poor and this has gone on all year One j thousand dollars has b2en set aside as a nucleus toward building a hospital Delaware is now de cidedly interested in tuberculosis work and all this in ITheyear has decided to issue Christmas Stamp in every theI A beautiful stamp has been pecially designed

of the problem in all itsaspects Is not now nee essary I believe In a steady ef fort or perhaps It would be more accurate to say In steady efforts in many different directions to bring about a

business As far as concerns those who have been worn out I call your attention to the fact that definite steps toward providing oldage pen ourprlatedefinitely extended through voluntary association

tutional liberty to contract should be H TiJt1t j 5Ys 1t permitted to interfere with this and similar movements Vending a thoroughgoing Investlga tlon and action there Is certain legislation which should bo enacted at once Tho law passed at the last session of tho congress granting compensation to ce brtainernmrnt should be extended to Include all employes of the government and should be made more liberal In itt terms There Is no good ground for the distinction made In tho law between those engaged In hazardous occupations and those not so engaged The terms of the act pro ding compensation should be more liberal than In the madoI act A years compensation Is not quftte for a wageearners family In the event of his death by accident In the course of his employment And In the event of death occurring say ten or eleven months after the accident the family would only receive as compen cation the equivalent of ono or two months earnings In this respect the generosity of the United States towards Its employes compares most unfavora y with that of every country in Eu rope oven the poorestoThe terms of the act are also a hardship In prohibiting payment In cases where the accident Is in any way due the negligence of the employe It is evitablo that dally familiarity with danger will lead men to take chances at can be construed Into negligence o well Is this recognized that in prac

be extended to tho entire work pheembrace contracts on those public works which the present wording of the act seems to exclude Would Double Salaries of Judges I most earnestly urge upon the con totallyInadequatejudges On the whole there Is no body f public servants who do as valuable work nor whose moneyed reward Is so Inadequate compared to their work Be ginning with the supreme court the judges should have their salaries doubled It Is not befitting the dignity of the nation that its most honored public servants should be paid sums so small compared to what they would earn inoprivate life that the performance of public service by them Implies an exceedingly heavy pecuniary sacrifice It Is earnestly to be desired that some method should bo devised for doing away with the long delays which now obtain in till administration of justice and which operate with peculiar sever ity against persons of small means and favor only the very criminals whom iti teslong delays In the final decisions of cases mako in the aggregate a crying avll and a remedy shouiJ be devised Muchot this intolerable delay Is due o improper regard paid to technical ties which are a mere hinderance to

und It remains and must ever be maintained as the safeguard of those principles of lib thefoundationas Burke finely said when liberty and Justice are separated neIther Is aIltc There are however some members of the judicial body who have lagged behind In their understanding of these great and vital changes in the body politic whose minds have been opened to the new applications of the old principles made necessary by the new conditions Judges of this stampdo last ing harm by their decisions because they convince poor men In need of protection that the courts of the land are pro sympathywithor hostile to any propoted remedy To such men It seems a cruel mockery to have any court decide against them on toprseneJ1bertywithholding liberty In any real and con structive soniwC There are certain decisions by various courts which have been exceedingly det wallworleraThlJlathat men are by the constitution guaranteed their liberty to contract to enter t 4 I 1 a dangerous occupation or to work an und sltabl or Improper number of hours or to work In unhealthy surroundings and therefore cannot recover damagerI when maimed In that cannot be forbidden to work what the legislature decides Is an excessive num er of hours or to carry on the work under conditions which the legislature decides to be unhealthy Decisions such as those nullify the legislative effort to protect the wageworkers who most need protection from those employ ers who take advantage of their grind- Ing need They halt or hamper the movement tot securing better and more cqul tablo conditions of labor There Is also I think ground for the belief that substantial Injustice Is often suffered by employes In consequence of the custom of courts Issuing temporary Injunctions without notice to them and punishing them for contempt of court In Instances where as a matter of tact they have no knowledge of any proceed ings Organized labor Is chafing under the unjust restraint which comes from repeated resort to this plan of procedure Its discontent has been unwisely expressed and ften but Is foaderly and lawaUdlng people of a com m would ba In a far ti rionproIthSuchabove as advocated by the extreme labor leaders contain the vital error of being k diindeve that the law would rightly be held unconstitutional Moreover the labor people are themselves now beginning to Injunctionwithin my own knowledge at least fifty Injunctions have been obtained by labor unions In New York city alone most a Ifothem being to protect the union label a property right but some being obtained for other reasons against employ ers Injunction Must Remain The power of Injunction Is a great equitable remedy which should on no account be destroyed But safeguards should be erected against its abuse In substance provision should bo made that no Injunction or temporary re s n poticewould otherwise result and In such case hearing on the merits of the order should be had within a short fixed period and It not then continued after hearing It should forthwith lapse De should be rendered immediately nd time chance of delay minimized In very way Moreover I believe that the procedure should be sharply defined and the Judge required minutely to state the articulars both of his action and of his therefor that tire congress can It It desires examine and Investigate the sameitj tuusticewhole are themselves to blame and Ut judges and Juries merely bear the share together with the public as whole It Is discreditable to us as a people that there should bo difficulty In convicting murderers or In bringing to Justice men who as public servants have been guilty of corruption or who have profited by the corruption of public servants The result Is equally unfortunate whether due to halrspllt ting technicalities In the Interpretation f law by Judges to sentimentality and class consciousness on the part of j i csmthlsfallure of justice no responsibility whatever lies on rich men as euchtiwho make up the mass of the pe9ple cannot shift the responsibility our own shoulders But there Is an Impor tmcciaUyto proper account men of wealth who behave badly The Modern CorporationfThe hugo wealth accu mulated by a few Individuals ot recent years In what has amounted to a so cial and Industrial revolution has been as regards some of these Individuals made possible only by the Improper use of the modern corporation A certain type of modern corporation with Its officers and agents its many Issues of securities and Its cnnatant consolida tion with ame d undertakings finally become an instrument so complex as to contain a greater number of elements that under various judicial decisions lend themselves to fraud and oppression than any device yet evolved In the human brain Corporations are necessary Instruments of modern business They have been permitted to become a menace largely because the governmental representatives of the people have worked slowly in provid ins for adequate control over them Our great clusters of corpora tions huge trusts and fabulously wealthy multimillionaires employ the very best lawyers they can obtain togpick flaws in statutes after tht passage but they also employ f class of secret agents who seek under the flegialaionconstitutional often through the mae r tion of what appear on their face to be drastic and sweeping provisions against the Interests of the parties inspiring them while the demagogues the cor fmailingtions and all who demand extreme and undesirably radical measures show themselves to bo the worst ene mica of the very public whose loud mouthed champions they profess to be Real damage has been done by the manifold and conflicting Interpretations 01 the Interstate commerce law Control over the great corporations doing interstate business can be effective only If It is vested with full power In an administrative department a branch of the federal executive carrying out a federal law It can never be effective if a divided responsibility Is left In both the states and the nation it can never be effective If left In the hands of the courts to be decided by lawsuits Respect for Law Must Be Upheld The courts hold a place of peculiar and deserved sanctity under our form of gov ernment Respect for the law Is ease a tial to tho permanenqe of our Institu tions and respect for the law Is largely conditioned upon respect for tho courts- It Is an offense against the republic to say anything which can weaken this respect save for the gravest reason and In the most carefully guarded manner In no other nation In the world do the courts wield such vast and farreaching power as In the United States All that is necessary is that the courts as a whole should exercise this power with the farsighted wisdom already shown by those judges who scan the future while they act In the present Let them exercise this great power not only honestly and bravely but with wise Insight into the needs and fixed purposes of the people so that they may do Justice and work equity so that they may protect all persons In their rights and yet break down the barriers of privilege which Is time foe of right Forest Preservation If there Is any one duty which more than another we owe It to our children to perform at once It Is to save the forests of this country for they constitute the first and most Important element In the conservation 9f the natural resources of the country Just as- a farmer after all Iris life making his living from his farm will If he Is an expert farmer leave It as an asset of In creased value to his son so we should leave our national domain to our children Increased In Value sod not worn out There are small sect ns of our own country In the cast and In the west In the Adirondacks the White mountains and the Appalachians and In the Rocky mountains where we can already see for ourselves tho damage In the shape of permanent injury to the soil and the river systems

which In Japan in Australia In New Zealand and In all the states of South America the battle fleet has been re c deiredpanelation of the abounding and generous hospitality shown our ships in every ort they visited The Army As regards the array I call attention to the fact that while our Junior ofacers and enlisted men stand very high the present system of promotion by seniority results in bringing Into the igher grades many men of mediocre s tervev testedIn the army any more than In any other professlbn It Is a curious and by no means creditable fact that there should be so often n failure on the part ot the public and its represent tlves to understand the great need from the standpoint of tIre service and the nation of refusing to promote r e spectable elderly Incompetents The higher places should be given to the most deserving men without regard to seniority at least seniority should be treated as only one consideration In the stress of modern Industrial com petition no business firm could succeed If those responsible for Its management were chosen simply on the ground that they wen the oldest people In Its em ployment yet this Is the course ads o ated as regards the army and re uired by law for alt grades excep j those of general officer Ag a matte of fact all of the best officers In the highest ranks of the array are those who have attained their present posl tion wholly or In part by a process of selection The scope of retiring boards should e extended that they could con aider general unfitness to command for any cause In order to secure a far more 9mhephysical or temperamental disabilities But this plan Is recommended only the congress does not coo lit to provl what In my Judgment Is far bettothat Is for selection in for elimination for age Officers who fall to attain a certain rank by a cer t be s rtanCefield rank by the time he is hould he of course be placed on the re tired list General officers should be selected as at present and onethird of the other promotions should be made by selection the selection to be made by the president or secretary jfwar from a list of at least two can dates proposed for each vacancy by a board of officers from the arm of the service from which the promotion is o be made A bill Is now before the having for Its object to se cure the promotion of officers to varl ous grades at reasonable ages throuta process of selection by fleers of the least efficient for retire meat with a percentage of their pay d b iillthat should be done is a long step In the right direction and I earnestly recommend Us passage or that of a more completely effective measure National Guard Now that time organised militia the National Guard has been incorporated with the army as a part of the natiqnal forces It behooves the government to do every reasonable thing In Its power to perfect its efficiency It should be assisted In its Instruction and other wise aided more liberally than here to fore The continuous services of ma welltrained fssentialill s now pending before the congress creating a number of extra officers in tho army which if passed s It ought to be will enable more to bo trained as Instructors of National Guard and assigned to that duty In case of war It will be of tho utmost importance to have a large number of trained officers to use for turning raw levies into good troops The Navy I approve the recommendations of the general board for tIme in 1mlattentiontional destroyers and colliers and above all of the four battleships It is desir able to complete as soon as possible a squadron of eight battleships of the best existing type theIgeneral board be by law turned Into a adiscent bureau organization of time navy Tho should be treated as a purely mill ary organization and everything should be subordinated to time one object of se curing military efficiency A system of promotion by merit either by selec tion or by exclusion or by both processes should be Introduced It Is out of the question If tho present pninelimlnof promotion by mere seniority Is k to expect to get the best results from Sit higher officers Our men come too old and stay for too short a time In the high command positions Hothlng better for the navy from every standpoint has ever Occurred than the cruise of the battle fleet around the world TIme Improvement of the ships In every way has been extraordinary and they have gained far more experience i wengained if they had stayed In the Atlantic waters Time American people have cause for profound gratification both In view of the excellent condition or the

them all frowned the grim wnltylsage of Doddridgo Knapp and I could not find the courage that could make me speak to them Mrs Knapp I said you have almostIhave lived more inthoIast month than in tho 25 years that I remember before it and 1 have almost come to think that the old name belongs to some one else May I ask how you got hold of It It was simple enough Henry had told mo about you I remembered that you were coming from the same town ho had come from I telegraphed to an agent in Boston Ho went up to your place made his Inquiries nnd tel egraphed me suppose you will bo pleased to know she continued with NrJfC4U CAOOYHm JJqTy7 7lJ OWlYHm a droll affection of malice In her voice that he mailed ale your full history as gathered from the town pump It is at the house now- I tried to get something out of Mother Bortori concerning you con tinued Mrs Knapp I even went so far as to see her once I dont think you got any more out ot her than she wanted to tell Indeed I did not I was afraid Mr kichmond bad not gone about it the right way You know Mr Richmond acted as my agent with her No I didnt know She was as closemouthed vth me as with you I think WeIlI saw tier i ranted to get what Information she had lot you and of HenryShe a good deal of 1tIf she wanted to give It up Sol suppose But site was too clever for me She spoke well of you but sot a word could 1 get from her about Henry Yet she gave me the idea that she knew much- I should think she might I had told her the whole story She Is used to keeping secrets I suppose replied Mrs Knapp But I must reward her well for what she has done7 Sho Is beyond fear or reward Dead crledV Mrs Knapp in a shocked voice And how She died I fear because she he friended me And then I told her tho story of Mother Bortons end Poor creature said Mrs Knapp udlyYetPerhtpsll Is better so She has died In doing a good act The carriage had been rolling along swiftly Despite the rain the streets worn smooth and hard and we made rapid progress Wo had crossed a urldgt and withmanvturns made a course toward the southeast Now the ground became softer and progress was slow An Interminable array of trees lined the way on both sides and to my impatient imagination stretched for miles before us Then the road became better tho horses trotted briskly forward again their hoofs pat tering dully on the softened ground All tho better I

me He was to meet us here Bo careful cautioned Mrs Knapp- I kept my hand on tho revolver that lay In my overcoat pocket and walked with Dicky on to tho porch It was a common roadside saloon and at this hour It appeared wholly de serted Even the slog without which I knew no roadside saloon could ox 1st was as silent as Its owners Heres a go said DlckyIle was to meet us sure What time have you

can pick out the right road Is this tho third road from Brook lyn I asked pointing to tho track that led to the left I reckon so said Dicky I havent kept count but I recollect only two before It All

mile another We are on the right road was my thought as I compared these in my mind with the crosses on the diagram About half a mile farther a small cluster of buildings loomed up dark and obscure by the roadside This Is the place I said confident ly motioning the driver to pull up I remembered that Henry Wiltons map had stopped at the thrd cross from the parting of the roads No It Isntsald Dicky eagerly Its two or three miles farther on I trailed the fellow myself to the next house and thats a good two miles at leastI leaped to the ground and opened the door of the carriage We are at the fourth place I said And the cockeyed barn inquired Mrs Knapp peering out I was struck silent by this and looked blankly at the dark forbidding structuro that fronted on the road Youre right said Mrs Knapp with a laugh Cant you make out that funny little window at the end thereI more closely at the build- Ing In the dim light of the stars the coat of whitewash that covered it made It possible to trace the outlines of a window in the gable that fronted the road Some freak of the builder had turned it a quarter of the way Remarkable Discovery Made In Frozen Siberian Bog Sixtyone years ago a young Russian engineer Benkendorf saw the River Lena In Siberia release a dead mam moth frozen ages ago In the bog There ha1 been exceptionally warm weather In the north of Siberiaand the river swollen by melting snow and Ice and torrential warm rains swept out of its old channel and carv ed u new one carrying to the sea vast quantities of its former banks and furrowing up the thawing bogs over which It raced As ho made his way in n steam cutter against tho current Benkcndorf EJW the head of a main moth appear above the flood nl hJupor tush ot water more ant i j jf W o RW around giving It a comical suggestion of a man with a droop to his eye And tho iron cow I asked Stupid a pump of course replied Mrs Knapp with another laugh Now see It there Is a lane here by tho barn A narrow roadway Just wide enough for a single wagon joined the main road at tho corner of the building Then drive up It quietly was Mrs Knapps direction Just beyond the barn I made out tho figure of tho pump In a conspicuous place by the roadside and felt more confident that we were on tho right roadThe driver sworo in an undertone as tho hack lurched and groaned In a boggy series of ruts and a branch whipped him in the face I was forced to give a grunt myself as another slapped my sore arm and sent a sharp twinge of pain shooting from the wound till It tingled in my toes Dicky protected between us chuckled softly 1 reflected savagely that nothing spoils a man for company like a mis taken sense of humor Suddenly the horses stopped so short that wowere almost pitched out Mrs Knapp rapped on the carriage door and I opened itMayo you como to the bars she astfcd presently- I guess so Weve come against something like a fence Well then she replied when we get through take the road to the left That will bring us to the house You are certain That is what Henry wrote in the cipher beneath the inap The house must be only a few hundred yards awayThe bars wero there and I lifted the wet and soggy boards with an anxious heart Were we after all so near the hidingplace And what were we to findVOn n sudden turn the house loomed up before us and a wild clamor of dogs broke tho stillness of the night I hope they are tied I said with a poor attempt to conceal my misgiv ingsWell have a lively time in a quar ter of a minute if they arent laughed Dicky as ho followed me But the baying and barking came no rearer and I helped Mrs Knapp out of the carriage She looked at the house closely This Is the place she said in an unmistakable tone of decision We must be quick I wish something would quiet those dogs they will bring the whole country out It seemed an hour before we could raise any one but It may not have been three minutes before a voice came from behind the door Whos there It is L M K said Mrs Knapp then she added three worth of gibber ish that I took to be thn passwords used to identify the friends of the boy At the words there was the sound ot bolts shooting back and the heavy door opened enough to admit us As we passed in It was closed once more and the bolts shot home Before us stood a short heavyset man holding acandle His face which was stamped with much of the bull dog look in it was smooth shaven ex cept for a bristling brown mustache He looked inquiringly at us Is he herethe boycrled Mrs Knapp her voice choked with nan iety Yest said the man Do we mute againAt once said Mrs Knapp In Tier tone of decision It will take ten minutes to get ready said the man Come this wayI was left standing alone by the door In the darkness with a burden lifted from my mind We had come in time The single slip of paper left by Henry Wilton had been the means through a strange combination of events to point tho way to the unknown hiding place of the boy In a few minutes the wavering light of the candle reappeared Mrs Knapp was carrying a bundle that I took to be the boy and th s man brought a valise and a blanket Its all right nalu Mrs Kanpp NoI can carry hlmI want to carry him Tho man opened the door then closed and locked it as I helped Mrs Knapp Into the carriage Have you got him safeaskeo Dicky Incredulously Well Ill have ItO say that you know more than I thgught you dldAnd the relief and satisfaction in his tone were so evi dent that I gladly repented of my suspicions of the lighthearted Dicky Have you heard anything I asked him anxiously I thonsht I heard a yell over here through Ole woods We had better get out of here Dont wait a second said the man The south road comes over this other way If youve heard anybody there they will be hero In five minutes Ill follow you on a horse With an injunction to haste stepped after Mrs Knapp into the car riage the door was shut Picky mounted the seat and we rolled down the road on the return Journey JTO BE CONTIMUED Ice Had Preserved Mammoth released the body Its hind legs were still imbedded when be saw it but 24 hours liberated these The mam moth had sunk feet first into a bog The oozo
