Spaix maintained with her lost col
onies subsidized steamship lines which
in the nature of things will be discon
tinued shortly. If the United States
is to take any considerable part in ths
business of the merchant marine of the
world she must begin at once as the
paths of commerce are being extended
to the uttermost corners of the earth and
when once established, trade Is hard to
divert. II America does not step in and
control the carrying trade of these
islands, England, France and Germany
will. These latter countries subsidize
their steamship lines and the only way
to pot capital in the merchant marine of
this country is to make the same en
couragement to it as European countries
do. To secure the trade of these islands
i to advance the outposts of our trade
and commerce hundreds of miles in the
West Indies and make it that much
easier to get the lion's share of the trade
of South America while in the Pacific we
ar j placed at the very door of tbe richest
commercial prize on the face of the earth.
If e do not take advantage of our op
pertnnities we will lose what cannot be
gained in years. It is time that Ameri
ca's commerce is carried in American
ships. The subsidies granted by foreign
nations are made np in part at least by a
tonnage tax on all foreign vessels enter
ing their ports. In the United States
this tax is very light and our ports are
practically free although we expend
immense sums in improving our harbors,
establishing lighthouses etc. Tbe sec
retary of the treasury recommends that
this country profit by the experience of
others and that congress enact such
measn-ies as will place us on a plane in
the shipping world as our importance as
a nation entitles us to.
Tub inspctor-general of army recom
mends strongly periodical military man
euvers and experimental mobilization.
This undoubtedly should be done as it
would give training such as wonld avoid
most of tbe difficulties experienced in
tbe camps by tbe troops during the late
war. Training is the only way these
difficulties can be met.
Vkbt and Hoar oppose expansion by
the United States because their const i
ments get no direct benefit. If tbe
Ptiilippines were on the Atlantic Hoar
would not object neither would Vest if
his state got some of tbe immediate
benefits. Neither of them seem to be
able to see tbe great possibilities for this
jntry in getting to tbe doorway of tbe
ental trade.

Pleasant Dream..
It does not lie in the painter's fancy to
imagine a prettier picture than that of a
yonne girl, with lips luscioua with the
promise of love, half parted in tbe smiles
of happy dreamland. Tbe mind of happy
maidenhood ia a clear and polished mirror,
which, when tbe wits go wandering into tbe
ghostland of dreams, reflects tbe impres
sions of waking hours. If those impres
sions are pleasant and painless and happy,
she will smile in ber aleep. if the impres
sions are those of a suffering woman, tor
tured witb tbe special ailments to which
tbe feminine organism is liable, the picture
ia spoiled by the lines of suffering and de
spondency. Maladies of thia nature unfit a
woman for joyous maidenhood and for cs
pable motherhood. They incapacitate her
to bear tbe burdens of life in any sphere
of action. Household, marital and social
duties alike are a burden to the woman who
ia constantly suffering from headaches,
backaches, dragging sensations and weak
ening drains. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription - positively, completely, unfail
ingly cures troubles of this nature. It
imparts health, strength, vigor to the dis
tinctly womanly organ. It fits for care
free, healthy maidenhood, happy wifehood
and capable motherhood.
