Again, Hall Caine raises the ques
tion of a woman's ability to i'Ibc from
a lite of sin to a position of respect
among her fellows, ns men often rise.
Hall Calnc, in "The Eternal City,"
does all but establish the fact, for
lie hills ltoma after she Is forglvon by
her husband, and" grown back into the
love of the Roman people. He proves
his point, but discourages every wo
man who might class with Roma, by
making it seem to be necessary that
all women that have sinned must die
in order to be happy. Why not tell
us once of a woman who sinned and
was in some corner of tho world
again reinstated in the place that all
good women should occupy, the re
spect and affection of the people for
one who has had enough of good to
battle against bad tendencies and con
RECIPROCITY BY THE POPE.
It is the case of a "plain duty" re
stated. Mr. Roosevelt in his message
to fongiess said It was obviously our
;&rty to give Cuba relief in lower tar
HSf schedules, and the president hint
athat the nation was bound in honor
,ud to do. Now the protected sugar
.&!-, headed by Mr. Oxnard, comes
to The front, alongside of tho tobacco
.trot, and the two demand that no
HDivession be granted. Congress lis- (
ecs to them, and apparently ilisre
jcaris the stentorian tones and com-1
oawding manner of the nation as it
ars to its representatives that they
mist give relief to Cuba.
Why should we relieve Cuba? Be
osi.se we cut off Cuba's once rich
anccket in Spain, and constructively
oatred one here. Cuban people never
.iuibted that this country would exer-'
afe fostering care over her. She con
ceited to placing herself under our ,
Trttual control, even though she has '
jSHuretical freedom. The United
gutes exercises authority guaranteed
fcy the Cuban constitution to. visp all
Imeign negotiations. It is in return'
lai past promises, in conpensation as
xvtll for concessions made by Cuba in ,
firtse respects, that, we should con- J
csie to her in the matter of the tariff.
2f to do so would be perfidy.

ENDING A NOVEL.
Admirers of Hall Calne wonder
chy he persists In ending his novels
in a manner to disappoint every read
ier. Ills last and greatest story, "The
.Eternal City," charms the reader, and
it! tie attention" to tho sad ending. It
is strong. It is tho finest work from
tie pen of Cain. It warrants hope
Oat It will live. But, it is dlsap
painting. Why, when a novelist is
eanlpotent, does not ho close his
.stories without sending the reader
tin bod with Btralned heart strings,
atter remaining up Into the small
Jours of the morning to end tho talo?
'Why does Calno this? Is tragedy
flatter than sweetness and happiness
as tho closing of a story? There is
cot tho shadow of a doubt that ex
actly 100,000 people have execrated
Ball Calne for ending "The Eternal
CSty" with the death of Home. Evory

The holy father has resumed his
public audiences, and last Sunday at
noon received about 250 persons of
all nations in' the great audience
chamber of tho Vatican. They were
mostly Catholics; mnny of them had
come long distances, and some had
been waiting weeks for the opportun
ity. Tho larger number were French
but there were a good many English
and Americans, a good share of ,the
latter being Protestants. It was the
first public audience lie has given this J
s"ason, anu was very mucn mouineu
from former occasions of the kind,
which is necessary because of his in
creasing weakness. 1
The doctors say, as I told you in
a recent letter, that the pope is a well !
man, and his only disease is age. His !
vitality is extremely low and his light 1
flickers. .Most of his time is spent
in a reclining chair, gathering his
strength for the duties he is required
to perform, and these public audi
ences are more taxing and exhaust-1
ins than anything else he does, al-1
though he has passed the period of
life when the nerves can be excited,
and lias reached, beyond all living
men, that state af existence which
tln lhuldists strive to acquire a se-1
rone and holj calm. His temner is !
to cmnfiietely under control that it !
would tie difficult to provoke him, and j
that is one reason of his long life.
Had Leo XIII been a passionate man
lie would have been dead long ago.
In fact he was almost as feeble at
the time he was elected pope as he is
now, and that fact was one of the
chief arguments in favor of his elec
tion. There was a deadlock in the
college or cardinals, Cardinal Pran
chi, his chief opponent, having a
large minority, which prevented him
:oni obtaining the necessary two
thirds vote. An arrangement was en
tered into between the friends of the
two candidates under which the sup
porters of Cardinal Franchi agreed
to cast their votes for Cardinal Pecci, ;
with the understanding that he
should appoint Cardinal Franchi pap
al secretary of state and that the sup
porters of Pecci should elect Cardinal
Franchi pope when Pecci died, as
they expected him to do in very short
time. This arrangement has been
fulfilled as fur as lay in the power of
man. PleccI was elected and Franchi
was made papal secretary of state.
but the Invalid whose death was so
confidently expected, will enter upon
the twenty-fourth year of his ponti
ficate February 20, and a few days
later upon the ninety-third year of
his life, having been born March 2,
1S10. Franchi was a healthy, robust
specimen of physical perfection,
twenty years younger than Pecci, but
lie dietV within four years after tho
election, and Pecci has outlived not
only him, but every other cardinal
who cast a vote at that time. Ho has

Since tho crucifixion of Christ,
when Peter, tho fisherman of Galilee,
became the head of the church, or the
pope, as the occupant of the office has
been cajled since the fifth century,
203 persons have been elected to the
office, and their average term has
been about seven years. Only 12
popes havo reigned over twenty
years; only two have- exceeded the
term of Leo XIII. St. Peter had the
longest reign of any of the popes,
from tho year 33, when tho church
is supposed to havo been organized at
Antloch, to the year 67, tho date of
the crucifixion, a period of trlrty- four
years. There has been no Peter II.
Popes chose their own titles, but none
have been willing to assume that hal
lowed name. Tho following is a list
of the popes who havo reigned twen
ty years and more:
St. Peter. .33 07. .34 years.

In the last 125 years. During the
turbulent times of the mlddlo ages,
from 89C to 1012, there wore 32 popes.
From 47G, tho fall of tho homan em
pire, during the reign of Romulus
Augustus, to the restoration of tho
holy Roman Empire nuder Charle
magne In 80Q, there, were fifty-three
popes, averaging six years and one
month. Of the 2G2 popes who pre
ceded Leo XIII. eighty-eight were can"
onized, all the popes being canonized
up to the year 530. Thirteen popes
have borne the name of Leo and five
of them have been canonized.

There have been seven popes as
aged as Leo XIII. Calixtus III., one
of the the Ilorgias, was 78 years old
at the time of his election in 1455,
and lived three years afterward. Cle
ment X (1C70) was 80 years old when
he was elected and reigned six years.
Clement (1730) was also eighty, and
reigned eight years. Celestine III.
was S5 when he was elected in 1191, 1
and reigned seven years. Gregory
IX. was 84 when lie was elected in
1227, and lived to be 100 years old.

The day was long, the wind was cold,
The grafter was infirm and old;
The last of all the "gang" was he,
Who held the law a mockery.
Alone ho stood, apart from all,
Within the busy city hall,
And watched the toil and earnest
Of civil service employes.

That this is all that's left of me?

That this should be the present gamo

And things are in a pretty fix
When there's no graft in politics."
The greater grafter paused; then
His old familiar stamping ground
The place where once Ills mighty
Had ruled without a protest heard.
One long, last look he gave and then,
Klbowd and shoved by restless men,
Like one who quits a hopeless fray,
Once pursued his weary way.
