To the Wise Namely, Clubwomen.
The besetting sin of the clubwoman,
somebody observes pointedly, is her al
most insane inclination to speechify,
and, what is more, it is true. Without
disparaging the feminine lecturers who
are shining lights in clubdom, there has
arisen an overambitious type of club
woman, it seems, wno collects some
clever sayings, which may or may not
be her own special brand, on a question
of the hour, and, presto, she emerges
from her little brown study a full fledg
ed professional speaker. As the Hoosier
poet would put it, she has "a natchural
turn fer talkin fit to kill" and does not
appreciate that sometimes "the best
and hardest thing to learn is the trick
o' keepin still " No broader or better
hint can be given incapable platform
paraders than that given by the Quaker.

EXECUTOR'S SALE OF REAL ESTATE.
. The organization of the colonial com
mission, which is virtually a foreign
bureau, by the administration does uot
look as if the government had any idea
of relinquishing its recently acquired
territory. It is less, however, an indi
cation or an imperial policy than of a
pressing necessity on the part of the
administration for help in the labor
imposed upon it by the complicated
problems, civil and military, which have
arisen in Cuba and elsewhere. The
commission consists of three energetic
men, to whom will fall the duty of con
sidering the financial social, political
and industrial questions that were al
ready overworking the president and
his staff. The very first of all the prob
lems is the question of securing in the
Vest and easiest way a sufficient revenue
of $5 per month, to commence August 1, i froln the islands to carry out the re
forms that have been planned, and this
