To write the first draft on a slate,
that erasures might easily be made,
to copy In pencil on soft paper, and
make more changes, and finally after
snany days and alterations to arrive at
a neat and flawless manuscript this
was the painstaking method of the late
Gen. Lew Wallace. Hut "Hen llur"
was worth tho trouble.
A writer in one of tho magazines
ays: "Children already born may
walk dry shod from the mainland of
tne New York reservation to Goat If I
and across the present bed of tho Ni
agara river." There stents to be no
ref son to doubt that this country will
in the not far distant future have tho
ruins of what was once the greatest
cataract In the world.
Paraguay would seem to present tho
smallest chance for woman's rights
progress to be found on tho earth. In
that country there are seven women to

Everything that Is unpleusant or risky

only an application of the law of sup

will probably think It a beneficent one.

lie can Invade and explore It with Im

demand, relieve the owner of It en

that tho functions of nutrition are suc
cessfully maintained. To be sure, the
patient can never thereafter derive
much pleasure from his meals; he must
restrict himself to a rigid diet, but for
all tho other affairs of life be tuny be
as competent as before. There are to
day several atomachless men who are
earning their dully predlgested ration

Experiments with automobiles, mo
tor boat and flying muchlues will
nourish lu summer time, but since any
winter is liable to "tlo up" any vehicle,
perhaps we should employ a part of
the open season lu planning roads over
which it is poMlblu always to trarel.
We pride ourselves, and with reason,
on our systems of transportation. Yet
an ordinary billiard stops trains,
wrecks ships, leaves travelers strand
ed auywhero short of the places to
which they wish to go. Street cars
bocome'as powirless as the rest. Only
iu cities which, like Now York and
lloston, are provided with subways,
cuu loon I lines of communication lo
kept open. The underground routes
are the only ones that never fall us.
Subways under the seu muy appear
more desirable than feasible, but a
tunnel across the English Channel
seems a smaller undertaking than It
would have been twenty years ago,
and a hundred years hence projects
for sending trains beneath the oceans
may not bo laughed to scorn. Although
It -is now Impossible to do uwny with
tho discomfort and danger attending
aea voyages iu winter, money and
unoyauce may be saved by methodi
cal burrowing on land. In large cities
tunnels might extend from the railroad
stations to the manufacturing and
wholesale districts, and shipments
wight pats between shops aud cars
without getting in the way of persona
who havo no Interest In them. To All
busy streets with drays and crowded
sidewalks with packlng-boxea, as at
present is to make a senseless misuse
of common conveniences. Chicago al
ready has a freighting subway that
will relieve much of the street conpes
tlon. As to building local subways for
pnsengcr transportation, New York
and other cities that have passed thu
half-million mark In population ncod
little prompting. Hut It Is conceivable
tiiat subways will yet be carried far
beyond the limits of one city, and the
railway company that tunnels somo
cold and tempestuous region will bo
safe In announcing itself as "the popu
lar winter route."
Rubbish of all kinds Is being written
about the awful strain of modern life
and Its disastrous effects upon those
who arc forced to dwell within the lim
its of a busy civilization, Instead of fly
ing to a lodge In some vast wilderness.
In fact, thero has been so much snld
by one person and another about the
degeneracy that is certain to follow
life lived In the thick of things that any
number of men and women are begin
ning to feel sorry for themselves. Feel
ing sorry for yourself, It Is worth
while saying, can Invest more time and
sympathy with less profit than any
othjr occupation a man can take up.
If a man drinks cocktails before each
meal, highballs between meals, tea and
coffee at regular intervals, smokes nu
merous strong cigars, eats too much,
Is out In the open air not at all, and
ends his day with a bottle of wine and
a midnight supper, something disagree
able Is coming to him If he will only
keep It up long enough. Hut he need
not lay the result of his own glut
tony and abitso of alcohol and tobacco
and other habits of the sort to civiliza
tion or to the awful strain of life In
the twentieth century. The proof of It
lies In a decreasing death rate all over
America and Europe. A really degen
erate race begins to die out u does
not go on living longer and longer. It
may be true that there are more men
and women In rest cures than there
used to be but as thero used to be no
rest cures for them to go to, it Is rea
sonably clear that thore are lives be
ing saved now that had to be given
up heretofore. It Is also said that
thore are moro Insane persons than for
merly. Insane persons used to die in
a comparatively short time, and com
paratively few of them were ever re
stored to health and usefulness. Many
more used to die before Insanity
showed Itself who are now preserved.
Statistics of that kind are generally
misleading, since they take only one
aspect of the case into account Men
who do not cat and drink to excess,
who make play a part of their work
and who stick to llfo In the open when
ever they get a chance, need not worry
about stress and strain in modern or
any other life.
It has beeu said that Henry Clay
achieved success so easily that hu
quite misunderstood others and over
estimated himself. But he was eager
to learn the best way to do whatever
he had to do. In "The True Henry
Clay," tho author gives an Instance of
At fourteen Henry became cleric In
a store in Richmond, whither the fam
ily had removed. Stories are told of
his willingness' to do bts duty, al

Once he was reproved by the store
keeper for wasting too much twine.
Thereafter ho saved every scrap ho
could got and tied tho pieces together.
Again It wus explained that using this
sort of twine might bo offensive to cus
tomers, as It made tho packages look
untidy by reason of so many knots.
So he consulted with a tailor at Rich
mond, who showed him how to splice
string with a smooth joint
Prom that time ho spent his leisure
hours making short pieces of twine of

When bis employer discovered this he
was so much pleased that he had all

splicing It over to young Henry, with
the result that the young mail's enthu
siasm rapidly abated,
