method, in granting these valuable gifts.

invariably been that what was asked

sort of thing, and utd b Mf rnt'

tver be worth anything to those asking
for it and that the people would have
plenty of time in which to correct con

original investors. This is where we

if the right prayed for is nca enougn

By ANDREW CARNEGIE.
CHE growing 'potation of the INT KttD EPEX DF.NCE ol
tlio nations has brought clearly into viojv the question, as
to whether the world ought to permit international quarrels.
Certainty a BETTER WAY ought to be found to aettlo
j those disputes.
It was said long ago on excellent authority that no man liveth
onto himself. We have begun to perceive that NO -NATION"
LIVETH UNTO ITSELF and that certainly no nation gooth to war
unto itself. , The government that decrees war is decreeing misery
not only to tU enemy and to its own citizens, but to thousands IN
ALL OTHER COUNTRIES aa well.
Thia is what the increasingly vexatious, and involved queationa
aa to the rights of neutrals, which form so imimrtant a part of the
discussion of international conferences, mean. We are coming to
understand that THE HUMAN RCE IS OXE. The interest
of the army of English cotton spinner are at ttake in a war between
the north and the south; the interests of thoutidi who depend on
the manufacture of agricultural implements, or machinery of other
aorta are at stake when the farms of Russia are lying untilled or the
factories of Germany are closed because men are OFF TO THE
WARS. , '
It is said that "honor" often requirea resort to war. "Honor"
requires nothing but UPRIGHTNESS. A nation'i honor never
requirea defense by arma, '
How trivial are the disputes that
concerns of international trade and HOW FLIMSY THE CON
CEITS which move governments to fancy that they mus not? vio
lently vindicate their "honor I" Perhaps it is a matter of $10,000
affecting a few fishermen. A man could pay and settle hundreds of
disputes over which governments have gone to war, wasting lhea

SHdNSIP DOfiS NOT i6N3TRAIN A NATION TO E THE
JUDGE OF THE CORRECTNESS
IT FORBIDS THIS AND SUGGESTS THAT A DISINTERESTED
TRIBUNAL BE ASKED TO PASS
and legislatures, for every- "breath" of
wllom they shall draw, IV are glad to
herald the new doctrine and the more
the people come to know of the right
that is theirs, the more they will value
ft and employ it.
THE BABY CRIED! .
Wben the noor little royal chap of
Spain felt the cool touch of tie aacred
water that ushered him into the eo-
clesiastical fold, he cried, and the land
of the Don i U agog with the happy
significance of the paltry fact, since
tradition, tbe bread and meat of the
Spaniard, declared the act was propi
tious of a long life and successful reign.
This i a sample of the simple and
inconsequential things that sway the
old and decrepit nation and illustrates
the childishness of a people who are im
measurably behind the younger and
keener nations of the world anl what is
worse, satisfied to be, and remain, so.
W do not disparage folk lore; that
is one of the beautiful gifts of the old
year to the moderns and serve them
with a basie knowledge and example of
the foundations upon which their people
and their country were founded, and
leave the inspiration needed to actuate
them in the doinsr of their own great
tank-, but' we cannot sympathize with
that lapse into the inert o manifest of
the Spaniards, and in which they seem
to take the only pride that is left them;
it i pitiful, and worse, ,ince it betokens
an attitude from which there is no with
drawal, save by centuries of reaction
and revivication. The people who rely
upon ign and portent for the im
pulse to do and say thing of moment,
are indeed "at end of their tether." .

ON THE QUESTION.
ITS THE SKIN,

Costly Error of Treatment of Skin Dis
ease by Internal Nostrum when

If you slash your finger do jou drink
liniment, to our ltt No, you apply the
lotion to the wound, yet people are
treating skin disease constantly by
dosing tbe stomach.
Until a few years ago many doctor
thought that skin disease originated
with tbe blood. But the application, of
the genu theory prove that kin di-
ease re caused by germ which lodge
in the skin.
To cure the skin direct, through the
skin, Dr. Decatur D, Dennis compound
ed oil of wintergreen and other remedial
agent into a liquid called D. D. D. Pre
scription. He gave this to his patient
and found that the eczema germ were
eradicated while the healthy skin was
not injured at all.
Later Dr. Dennis was prevailed upon
to allow a private company in Chicago
to put up this remedy In bottle. While
Dr. Dennis ha not direct connection
with the company selling the prescrip
tion he endorsed the remedy and sanc
tioned the sale of D. D. D. through drug
Great credit i due to physicians who
recommend thi remedynd there are
many such physicians when they can
make so much larger fees by writing out
their own prescriptions.
,We vouch for D. D. D. Prescription
and D. D. D. Soap and recommend these
to all sufferers from skin disease.
