. SOME OBSERVATIONS.
It is constantly argued and per
petually asserted by priests and par
sons that the world's progress is in
the main due to the highly civilized
influences of Christianity, and while
this may be so, the revelations made
plain by the Victorian jubilee cele
bration do not help to sustain the
asserted arguments. It' will be re
membered that about 400 warships,
principally English, took part in the
celebration. Queen Victoria is com
monly hailed as a most Christian-like
ruler over a most decidedly Christian
people. The divine inception of
Christianity finds its source of origin
in the teachings of the "Prince of
Peace." It was he who advocated
and was the greatest exponent of
peace that the world has ever seen,
and according to his teachings, war
ships and guns and munitions of war
are indicative ot brutality and unre-
generaled sin. But be that as it
may, to me it is quite plain that there
is a vast difference between the teach
ings of the "Prince of Peace" and
the applied hypocrisy of individuals
and nations thac are masquerading
under this cloak of goodness, theo
retically and otherwise. It is true,
however, as fact can make it that
about 400 warships did participate in
the jubilee, and thereby bangs this
interesting puzzle: If it took 1897
years of Christian civilization to
bring about the formidable array of
aggressiveness witnessed in this jubi
lee, what may be expected at the
end of another 1897 years?
Let the priests and parsons ponder
over this part of the queen's jubi
lee program and see if they can find
anything that is in the least edifying
to themselves or consistent with the
doctrines taught by the "Pricse of
Peace .' ' Tom aha wk.
A dispatch to he Tribune from
London says that the special envoj's
of the United States to negotiate
with European powers for a settle
ment of the silver question on an
international basis, have awakened a
keen interest in the French govern
ment, which has promised to lend its
diplomatic support to the cause.
Thus does the will-o the-wisp lead
the envoys on from one feast to an
other, always tantalizingly out of
reach (not the dinneis) and always
about to be grasped. That old term
of "rainbow chasing" fits it better
than any other.. Envoys will be
treated with the most distinguished
consideration, and will get home
thi fall with a choice collection of
promises and a cap full of wind.

In the zoological gardens at Breslau
recently a South American boa con
strictor contended for a rabbit with a
large python from west Africa. It
did not succeed, however, the python
being1 the stronger of the two, and it
withdrew. About two hours later the
keeper found the same snakes fighting
for another rabbit. As the keeper
supposed that the boa, which was the
weaker of the two, would again give
up its prey, he left them to themselves
and went home. The next morning he
was horror-stricken to find that the
boa had not let go its hold and had
been swallowed by the python as a
pendant to the rabbit. The boa was
nearly seven feet long and correspond
ingly ti-ick. The python had already
swallowed one rabbit before the one
which proved fatal to the boa. Its
circumference throughout its length
was from twenty-three to twenty -eight
inches, and its skin was expanded to
double its size. The supposition that
the snake might, perhaps, not be able
to digest the boa proved false. Diges
