A Boston paper that has been
fighting the retention of the Phil
ippines now admits "we may as
well look the fact in the face that
we are to have the treaty and the
Philippines." When Boston does
find a fact and gets acquainted with
it she clutches it with fervent ar

The rapid ris9 of the land about
Hudson Bay is Baid to be the most
remarkable gradual upheavel of an
extensive region ever known.
Driftwood covered beaches are now
20 to 60 or 70 feet above the water,
new islands have appeared, and
many channels and all the oid har
bors have beoome too Bbullow for
ships. At the present rate, the
shallow bay will appear in a few
centuries, adding a vast area of dry
land or salt marsh to British terri
tory' in America.

his home folks says: "The Auieri
I can girls need not be afraid of the
Philippine girls winning the hearts
of their dear boys, for the belles in
this country are not so very beau

social ways or dress; as a rule,
they go around barefooted or with
sandals on their feet. They wear
no hats at all, the Spanish women
even not wearing any. The native
girls resemble bleached out squaws,
only they possess more regular
foatures, and do not (how age."
The Sulu islands, inoluded in the
purchase of the Philippines by the
United States are naturally a part
of the Philippine group, being the
southern portion. They are 162 in
number and are mouutainous and
fertile, producing an abundance of
sugar, rice, coffee, spices, valuable
woods ' and metals. The waters
abound in good fish. There are
1,048 square miles in the group and
450 square miles in. Basilun, the
largest island. The islands are in'
habited by about 75,000 Malays
whose ohiof occupation is alleged
to be piracy. Spain's right to bo
censidored the ownor of them was
rooognized by the powers in 1885.
Ownership of the Philippines would
not be complete without them.
A Spaniard told an American offi-'
:er: ''What especially terrified our
nen was the huge American negroes.
tVe saw their ' big black - faces
through the underbrush and they
looked like devils." A young lieu
tenant of the nineth U. 0. infantry,
and a southerner at that, said: "Do
you know, that I would not want
anything better than to have a
company in a negro regiment. I
am from Virginia and have always
had the usual feeling about com
manding colored troops. But ' after

The largest railroad station in
the world was thrown open to the
public on New Year's day, when
trains began to leave and enter the
new Soutb Union station in Boston.
The station cost about $14,000,000.
Twenty-eight thousand people can
tak seats at one time in the cars
in the trainshed on the street level,
and several thousand more in the
substation under the other. The
platforms will accommodate more
than 100,000 people at one time.
The granite eagle on the top of the
front of the station was carved from
a single block which weighed 20
tons. It took four granite cutters
ihree months to do the work, and
ihe figure now weighs 12 tons. The
i-tock under the e.igle is the largest
in the world, the dial being 14 feet
ti diameter. It is warranted by
its makers not to vary more than
