nouncement his lordship, who has been connected
actively with the press for nearly half a century,
made some olservations pon the growing g&re and
aniiexy oi journausiic wgrkers nu iu uruvicr uur
dens they are now compelled to bear, resulting from
the changed conditions of newspaper making in re
cent years. Formerly, he pointed out, it was the duty
ef the newspaper to present a photograph of the
interesting incidents within a limited area, while now
nothing less than a biograph, with all the vivid, in-
eessant movement of masses in all parts of the world
is required. Such an extension of the scope of the
, newspaper has enormously added to the wear and
i tear of body and mind on the part of those who jpro-
duce it. To illustrate these changes Lord Brunham
The other day I turned back to the date of the
declaration of war between France and Germany,
I think it was July 15, 1870. Well, if you will look
to the papers of the .following morning you will find
that in all, from every part of the continent and from
America, you got about two columns of telegraphic
Now eompare that with the morning following
the news of the definite outbreak of hostilities between
Russia and Japan. Why, within a few hours you
will find in the papers six or seven columns of tele
graphic matter from every part of the world; you
will find long and complete articles on the armies
and fleets of the two powers; you will find accurate
maps, which must have been prepared with infinite
labor, and you will find descriptions of the command
ers of the two services of both the powers.
All this change in the service newspapers now
render the people, as compared with that in 1870, is
rarely eralized by those outside of newspaper offices.
As a matter of fact, so partial are we all to the past,
and so apt are most people of middle or old age to
become praisers of bygone times, that credit is rarely
given for what has been one of the most significant
features of the progress of the age. Not only has
this progress been steady, but newspapers of today
are vying with each other in devising new ways and
means of increasing the fulness and completeness of
the daily world biograph they lay on the breakfast
table, in most cases at far .greater expenditure to
themselves and less cost to the reader than the com
paratively limited newspaper of 30 years ago.
This change, moreover, is not confined to the news
part of the paper. The wider vision and the compre
tensive fulness of these diaries of world events leave
a heavier burden upon the editorial writer. Con
cerning the latter Lord Burnham, quoting a conver
sation of Dean Stanley, referred to the leader writer
as a man of great intellect waiting for a subject on
which to expend all his force the attitude of "the
crouching tiger,' 'ready to spring. While the Amer
ican leader writer is not inclined to take himself so
seriously, certainly the demands of the cosmopolitan
press of, today, as compared with the merely metro
politan press of yesterday or the comparatively pro
vincial press in the days before the Atlantic cable,
afford opportunity for the exercise of the best trained
intellect and the command of a vastly wider range
of knowledge than was deemed necessary in news
paper work 30 years ago. , .. , . , ,
GETTING RID OF THE UNRESIRABLE.
The human family is divided into two classes
those who take responsibility and those who shirk it,
cays the Bulletin. The shirkers are the happier, and
perhaps the wiser class. They usually have their own
way, get what they want and use the responsibles as
drudges and servants.
,, , Babies are typical of all irresponsibles. A baby
simply lies on its back and demands that it be waited
on. When hungry, the baby raises up its voice and
promptly the hunger is satisfied. The baby does not
ask whether people have anything else to do but wait
upon a clamorous infant. It does not concern itself
about people 's feelings or care what the world says.
Plenty to eatj plenty of sleep, and relief from colic
this the baby demands of the world, and this it gets.
There are thousands of grown-up babies who re
fuse to assume any responsibility for themselves or
anybody else, and who invariably find other persons
to carry them along, to take responsibility from their
shoulders and, generally, play the part of a wet and
dry nurse. Sometimes the grown-up baby is a de
pended brother or son or father. Perhaps he is a
drunkard, perhaps lazy, perhaps only what is de
scribed as "shiftless," but in most cases he is all
three. He boasts that he never worries. If he loses
his position, he complacently f alls back into the bosom
of his family and requires them to feed, clothe and
house him. 1 Nor does he make any effort to find new
employment or to keep it when it is thrust upon him.
It 'the., responsible members of the family, by oxer
cising their, interest, get him something to do, ht con
siders that they have, done no more than their duty.
The world 6wea him a living, he believes, and he sees
no reason why he should not collect it from his rel

half of the race is "supported hy' the other half, tjic
rresponsibles W the responsible the drones by the
workers ; and the irresponsibles, it may be reuiarkod,
resemble drpues in more ways" than 'one,' for they
multiply rapiilly and,' when they die,' usually leave
a legacy of Imngry little ones to be supported by t)ie
responsible portion of the family. ' j i
' iThe care a few irresponsibles is a clog on' a ris
ing man, bul there are few men of achievement that
have not borne one or two shirking relatives on their
backs in the;Upward climb. An ambitious man, ele
vating himself, endeavors to drag the rest of lus
family upward with him. ,
It would be an excellent thing for the world and
for the responsibles if all the irresponsibles, the de
pendents, the parasites, the lazy idlers, the drunkards
and other incompetents excepting, of course, the
bodily infirm were to be shipped to Africa and there
left to their own devices. Africa and the irresponsibles
both need development. It would be a shrewd action
for all the civilized nations to set apart the African
continent as a dumping ground for able-bodied para
sites of all kinds. There, among strangers, the irre
sponsibles would be forced to bear responsibility and
look out for themselves, and the responsibles in
Europe and America would be relieved of great
burden. No doubt in Africa the feebler parasites
would fasten upon the stronger and one-half the
population would still support the other half; but at
least the new conditions would train many to habits
of responsibility, and certainly Europe and America
would be better for the riddance of all irresponsibles.

Champ Clark, in the Saturday Evening Post, de
picts the course of department life in the following
graphic manner: "I have no sort of doubt that there
are old, gray-haired men vegetating in the depart
ments who, if they had never secured a clerkship in
Washington, would have become great lawyers, doc
tors, preachers, editors, authors, scientists or mer
chant princes. To many of them the notification of
their appointment, which filled their hearts with joy
and conjured up before their mind's eye gorgeous
visions of conspicuous snd lucrative careers, was an
unmitigated curse. They came to Washington full of
usty life, of high resolve, of lofty ambition ; they are
here now, fallen into the sere, the ypllow leaf, their
energies gone, their aspirations dead, their talents
rittered away by the service cn a treadmill, with only
one purpose remaining to hold onto a job; and
unless dismissed sans eeremony, they will be here
when the inexorable and inevitable messenger, who
comes for all and will not be refused, knocks at their
doors, even though he should postpone his unwel
come visit a thousand years."

more or less kidney trouble all my
life. When quite a young girl I had
a severe spell of sickness, and all who
knew me thought I was going to die.
I finally recovered, but ever after my
kidneys bothered me and I have suf

there were headaches, dizziness and

all of which I doctored and used more
than one remedy said to be a sure cure
for such annoyances. Nothing brought
me relief compared with that received
from Doan's Kidney Pills. The results
