EDwIN BROWN TWENTIETH CENTURY PROPHESIES Men made to order hunger satisfied without eating Eu rope reached in four days frqm the United States these are pnly a few of the wonders in store fpr the century whose threshold has just been crossed according to Robert G Givins of Chicago He bases his prophesies on conservative deductions from the record of scientific enter prise in the last century He says Twenty years agohad any one claimed that the human voice could be transmitted over a wire between Chicago and New York1000 mires he would have been declared a fit subject for a straitjacket Therefore let us make a few suggestions as to the possi bilities of the new century Imagine the future use of electricity Eating drinking and sleepingmay soon be dis pensedwith By means of an electric current properly brought to bear upon the digestive organs perhaps the human frame may be charged that it will not suffer fur want of food for mouths Then we may lmve a human incubator or factory to turn out men and women full grown without all this trouble about being born and passing through the silly period of childhood We are prone to observe faults and defects in the God made article In this new century we mayvritnessgrand- manufactories erected for the purpose of building humanity of a better quality Babies too in small numbers will be made up in these factories and we may read signs like this We manufacture a su perior quality of baby or kid has full set of teeth and thus avoid much trouble in teething and fretting no nursing bottles necessary as we feed ours for the first year free by the electric plan Call and examine samples- It will also be discovered no doubt that the manner of dress adopted during the Nineteenth Century was a mistake The shoit woolen pantaloons worn by the Scotch may be adopted as the woolen socks fitting tightly cause electricity to run down the bare shins and calves keeping up warmth Therefore we must not be surprised if it be discovered that a wool muffler around the neck and knitted anklets would cause a connecting current of elec tricity that would warm al most the entire bo- dyTRY ITWomen suffering from femal- etroxbles and weakness and

all the sculptured lines are discreetly indicated without any exaggeration No more bustle no more outrageous sleeves no more deformities of any sort Many a woman would have been in despair if nature had made heras fashion has often made her appear Today it is the female form divinely beautiful draped in beautiful liinp materials of soft delicate hues gracefully relieved by lovely lace and re fined trimmings the whole with a touch ofsimplicity that never fails to enchance the beauty ofthe wearer No neyer since the classical days of Atheian dress have women looked so beautiful as they do now The majority of us men are I believe conceited enough to think they dress and try to look as beautiful as possible to please us My firm con vietion is that women dress to please Lhemselvesor to kill other women with envy To the question Do women dress to please men I answer most emphatically No they do notquite the contrary Aildnow may I be permitted to remark that when I reflect that she was naked I cannot help thinking that a little bite at that fruit might be of service to many ladies before they leave their dressing rooms to goto a ball a theatre or a dinner party It is that the fashion of the day requires the train to be so long that there remains no material to make ji corsage vithThe fact is that unless you go under the table it is prac tically impossible for you to say what it is that the women wear around a dinner table As for th sight offered to our gaze from the boxes at the opera we might as well be in a Turkish bath And the most amuing and edifying part of it is that this fashion is more flourishing in puritanical England than in any country I knowand that most of those beautiful daughters of Albion whom you see so much of are the very same ones who are presidents vice presidents and secretaries of the societies for the suppres sion of the nude in the public parks the museums and arl galleries and other British institutions for the suggestion of indecency Who says that the world is sad Society ought to be exposed I once remarked to a beautiful member of the Eng lish aristocracy for giving that bad example You are quite right she said but that will do no good because- I believe that there is nothing that English society enjoys more than being exposed Evidently I was quite right when I once exclaimed Pro vided an English woman does not show her feet she is safe and feels com fortable In the way of dressing of all the women of Europe and America the Germans are the worst the French the best andthe Americans the smart est The German women are covered the English cloth the Americans arrayed and the French dressed ram nol ndw speaking of high life These people are the same al the world over and whenevei a writer publishes a criticise on the lifeand manner of anJ nation he ought to place th following epigraph at the toj of every page he writes s that the reader may not lOSE sight of it All civilized na tions in the world are alike ii

supplying the thous ands of dollars now being expending by the Washington Bureau and lobby that is pushing the shipping bill Senator Hanna says that the only people who oppose the bill are the agents of steam ship companies Can it be that the money for pushing the bill to endow certain steamship companies is fur nished by an overwhelming popular uprising in its favor Has there ever been anything more flagrant in the history of the country than the attempt to bribe the Supreme Court by appointing sons of justices to high office and to raise the salaries of the mem bers of the court No one thinks that the justices were any party to this thing but that does not alter the fact that the attempt while the colonial cases are pending was nothing less than criminal The merited reputation for

a beauty a scholar a belle but the women whose influence really holds tho world to ether are the gentle kindly tender souls tllA guardians of the home seek ing like the violet and the lily of the valley to shelter themselves beneath the seclusion of their own firesides They love and are loved whilo they do not dazzle they charm and while they do not command they lead us by the tender influences of affection Tiny are with us in our hours of glad ness thoy came to us in affliction with somevoicelesssympathyand their whole time is given to making sweet the way and soft the path of life for those they love Victoria is death and the whole world mourns As maid wife and mother she endeared herself to all tho nations of the earlh Sho was that most perfect of creations a womanly woman and too much cannot be said in her praise She will be interredby- the side of her idolized husband with this beautiful inscription composed by herself on her tomb- VICTORIAALDERT Here at last I shall Rest with thee With thee in Christ Shall rise again p CRYANS SALUTATORY IN THE COMMONER The fist number of The Common er the weekly paper published by William J Bryanwas issued last Wed nesday It is a neatappearing sheet typographically The following is the galutatory Webster defines a commoneras one of the common people The name lies been selected for this paper because The Commoner will endeavor to aid the common people in the protection of their rights the advancement of their interests and tho realization of their as pirations It is not necessary to apologize for the useof a term which distinguishes the great body of the population from the comparatively few who for one reason or another withdrew themselves from sympathetic connection with their fellows Among tho Greeks Hoi polli was used to describe the many while among the Humans the word plebs was employed for the same purpose These appellations likethe common people have been assumed with pride by those to whom they were applied while they have been used as terms of reproach by those who counted themselves among the aristocratic classes Within recent years there has been a growing tendency in some quar ters to denounce as demagogic any reference to or praise of tIme common peopleOne editor in a late issue of his pa per takes exception to the phrase and says This expression is an ill chosen one and should have no lodgment in the vocabulary of an American patriot and statesman If we sought its origin we speciousIemogogyfessional politician arrayed country against townthe farmer and his suns and daughters against the business and professional men antI their sons and- tiaugliterscapital against labor and built up against neighbors the Impregnable barriers of prejudice and hate This quotation is reproduced because it fairly represents the view of those who criticise the expression It has however in eminently respectable or- Igin In the same chapter in which Christ condensed mans duty to his fel lows into time commandment Thou shalt love their neighbor nit thyself in the same chapter in which lIe denounced those who devour widows houses and for a pretense make long prayers in this same chapter It is said of Him The common eople heard Him gladly No higher compliment was ever paid to any class The term the common people is properly used to describe the large ma jority ol the people those wlio earn their living and give to society a fair return forthe benefits bestowed by so ciety those who in their daily lives recognize tho ties which bind together the muss of tho people who have a common lot and a common hope Sometimes they are called the middle classes because paupers and criminals are excluded on the one hand while on the other hand some exclude themselves becanso of wealth or position or pride of birth The common people form the industrious intelligent and patriotic element of our population they produce the nations wealth in time of peace and light the nations battles in time of war They are selfreliant and independent thoy ask of Government nothing hut justice and will not be sat isfied with less Thoy are nut seeking to get their hands into other peoples pockets but are contnt if they can keep other peoples hands out of their pockets Time common people do not constitute an exclusive societythey are not of the four hundred any one can become a member if he is willing to contribute by brain or muscle io the nalions strength and greatness Only those are barred and they are barred by their own choice who imagine them selves made of superior kindof clay and wffo deny the equality of all before the law A rich man who has honestly ac quired his wealth and who is not afraid to intrust its care to laws made by his fellows can connt himself among the common people while a poor man is really not one of them if Juffawns be fore a plutocrat and has no higher ambition than to become a cotrrtier era sycophant The Commoner will be satisfied

dark eyes and hair and such fine teeth Almost every third woman was pretty and some remarkably so They wear no bonnets These familiar jottings show tho plain nature of tae queens mind John Brown came into the queens service in 1840 as gillie or urchin and Prince Albert noted his reliability and sent him with the queens carriage anti pony For 84 years this rare fellow a noble servant served the queen wife and widow and his love of her husband made him her reliance when alone Low opinion in England tried to exaggerate these simple household friendships Prince Albert was chancellor of Cam bridge university from 1818 till his death The queens fiftiethor jubilee year of reign was long and lavishly celebrated lIandJesterEnglaml was notable for tho modern paintings of the English school I attended tho naval review near Portsmouth where the largest war fleet probably assembled in the world up to that time and r presenting about 000000000 was to be re viewed by the queen Sho came an hour late though residing almost in sight at Osborno House upon her slow steam vessel the Victoria and Albert and the sailors barefooted in the shrouds were by this time so cold that they refused to cheerI that day that tho queen was the ruler of the land in everybodys heart and the minister the ruler in everybodys head Henco where the affections were engaged criticism was spared The min ister Was assailed for everything The sovereign represents England derivative rights and feudal glory The English have regard for those regaIns sociations The house of lords also represents the barons who in the founds i I tion of tho monarchy drew theta swords or as bishops elevated their crosses for the sovereign In time the barons obtained rights from the king In time the people took privileges from both Some 250 years ago tho crown was swept aside and parliament beheaded its wearer To tako the kings place a protector was era ated He mixed morals too much with governing and the kingly office was restored but the same questions came as beforenamely the kings right to mon ey and to command parliament and to have his own way like his barbarous ancestors the Braces Plantagenets and Tndors They were intensified by the fact that the king James II was deter mined to change the religion of the country and make it conform to that of Franco whose monarch subsidized and assisted these Stuart kings Finally the king of Holland as we may call William of Orange who was married to James daughter was brought into England with his army by the rebellious Protestant Io ds and commons Tho Ifgitiinato king was expelled and his son and his grandson were called pretenders and treated as public enemies though they had all the feudal rights to tho crown Now tho Prince of Orange who was a great politician on tho continent out bid Louis riV for Englands support Ho made an act of settlement giviuj away his wifes absolute rights and settling the tiu jno upon a German Protestant set of princes who were of tho English blood royalthe Hanoverian electors Wiion the male line ran out in Hanover as we have seen a son of George HI became king of Hanover again and it was his taco whom Bismarck drove from Hanover in 18CO Tho sister of Oranges wifo Queen Anne came to die and tho Brunswick Hanoverians or Georges tQok tho throne They are descended from a daughter of James I who married the German count palatinate and in Victorias blood is that of William tho Silent and Luthers protector Ministerial government from the house of commons replaced crown government in consequence of these ovents and by tho close of the French revolutionary wars had become so despotic that Vic torias predecessor had to threaten that ho would make so many peers as to over ride the house of lords in its opposition to tho refom of parliament bill The bill recast the constituencies and borongliH of England which had often been the gifts of great lords and gentry The nation upon a real parliamentary basis steppe out of its feudal and proprietary abuRs and tins since been subject to resp textensions of the sufi frage AsVictorifs first ministerial friends were Wings she had a bias for that par ty which wrote modified in subsequent years and sUe liked Peel lees than Pal merston JUT Gladstone less titan Dis raeli She atso expressed a disliko to making poor men peers who could not maintain th dignity of their titles In matters of this sort her positive refusal might qualy the loams and necessities of a ministry but she know very well that the pm so strings belonged to the commons nd all the ministers did their best to provide for her sons daughters sonsiniaw and grandchildren xo that she ha mull occasion to be anta onistic She influenced many favors such as the ennobling of the poet Tenny son who so often praised her and her progeny in rhymes Albert taught Victoria to provido for democratic r dark days by laying awny money Tho royal and civil list took a largo sum from the revenues every year It was invoked in stocks lands whatever would 1st guaranteed against a rainy day Tho Princo of Whles and some oth ers were fe with their mouey the queen always provident She leaves a Teat private fortune As all nets proceed in England not in queenVictoriaof the lawmaking powers so that her in evitable assent seemed ften to be a mat ter of her min choice But she had nev er but once and that in a small matter already related shown the fatuitousand futile obstinacy of soiJte of the Georges She was tike the queen bee in a hhonecessary to the mental rest and antis faction of them who work and as a woman England has always been partial to queens sho has given a softness and a chivalry a sentiment and a fruitful cr 7 BALJ1ORAL CASTLE ness to the sober and often hard aspect of the realm That she possessed any exceptional mentality was never probable Sho took rather than gave advice and illustrated the wifes vow wheroinlies the secret of a wifes happiness to love honor and obey Itm glad I am not descended from Elizabeth but from the queen of Scots shows her respect for the abused wife over the abusing virago She was not a descendant of Henry VTH who ex ecuted his wives but of Henry VII and of Edward IV Far back an her origin was the bastard souship of Duke William of Normandy anti before him of Rollo and nameless Norman pirates Tho extracts I have given from the queens book are such as any young miss might have entered or any plain wife expressed She did not challenge liter ary criticism nor pose for a member of Sorosis In that case she would have challenged comparison with Catharine of Russia Margaret of Valois and the lingdomornaments George Eliot Charlotte Bronte Harriet Martinean The queen portrayed to every English home the tender affectionate child bearing woman and thus her example upon the conn try has been of the greatest influence highWIt Ii she who evaded no responsibility or natures and by her fruitful wifehood projlonged her years and lived to see her childrens grandchildren Indeed the compensations for being queen of England are not such as a friv olous woman anywhere would long enjoy Sho cannot flirt the kingdom watches her A widow at 42 she made no overtures to marry anybody Even her confidence in her old booby John Brown was liable tomisinterpreted by a low plane of English criticism Every vote of money to her sonsinlaw was hailed with aery ir the socialistic prints of another German eating our bread Ash been shown several attempts had been made to assassinate her Privacy she can only have after a fashion and there fore hies to the parts of Scotland often where the climate iscold and showery Sho cannot leave tho realm at will any moro than time ecn bee can leave- tho hive Somotime ihe went abroad incognito well watched well begged from Her girls wee her treasures Her boys went off and got their wives Her eldest son was fond of free and vivacious com pany and sho saw most of him when he was sick Her length of life she knew must awaken hard thoughts in thorn who would reign in her stead She loved n glass of beer but it mado her fat Her real homo was Windsor castle an hour from London among the bones of h r predecessorsa dull little village dominated by an old stono palaCe with a hard treeless stone yard but re loved by the appendage of a fino forest Her London palace was an old stilted thing Her drawing rooms were held in an old low brick palace like a stable The best tho queen possessed noxt to her family and her education was tho society of her distinguished subjects who hall sometimes road to her Tennyson Dickens Norman McLeod Dean Stanley She refused to ennoble any man of tho art orliterary fields whoso private life was tainted A spotless walk a domestic diploma sho demanded from theseIHer receptions were not scanned like those of some of our senatorial parve nnes to see if an obscure person got in but the brazen and cunning and those made prosperous by low ways wore turned back when the lists were scanned She liked the Germans because they wore of liar lineage the Americans because they were of her race and she bo friended tho French orqpresa when she had nothing ambitious to hope for Victorias reign has been great in tier subjects in Bessemer Bnlwer Foley Faraday Darwin Tennyson Sho stands above a galaxy of great gentleman like their tutelar saint tier kingdom has i had unexampled prosperity and she load been opposed to war Wo are to mention that Victoria never was born to the crown and never was married to r king r Her father was a ruined younger son of a king Lr husband the younger son of a poor German duke The view of hor uncles emptied the throne of good pos tority and let her up She married before she was sjioiled and her linnlmud was her own cousin How many private lives are there demure and acquiescent She has proved that the meek shall in herit tho earth The woman who paid her deceatl fathers debts in a spirit of locator he dalrnot have becamo empress of 800000000 t of tho oldest people and princes in the worldHad Victoria disdained her friend Leo t polds advice to marry his nephew Al bert them perils and flatteries of

survived every contemporary of her corona tion and takes precedence of tho women of all the world Three queens say tho English Elizabeth Anne Victoria have given us our greatest reigns It is high
