REBUILD THE WASTE.
The angel of peace has blown out
the last glimmering footlight of the
sad South African panorama. The
defeated Boer, overwhelmed by sheer
numbers and resources, goes back to
his wasted field, to rebuild his shat
tered civilization. On every hand he
sees the unmarked graves of his fel
low comrades, sons and brothers.
Wherever he directs his gaze, it falls
upon a recent battlefield. His home
is desolated. His family circle is
broken. His citizenship is taken
from him. His little store of belong
'lngs has been confiscated by his foe,
or sacrificed upon the altar of a lost
cause and a fruitless struggle. He
has surrendered from exhaustion.
His country is devastated. The hope
of his countrymen Is crushed. Ev
erywhere about him llei the suggest
ive symbols of defeat.
In such - circumstances, under such
conditions, will the Boer ever become
a .good British subject? Will he for
get? Will he gather up the fragments
of his cherished government and trek
northward, or westward once more
toward another unclaimed wilderness
to found anew a government of his
own liking and of his own sovereign
choice? If he should do this, would
not this same conscienceless con
queror pursue him in his content
ment in search of something for
nothing? The Boer is human. He has
a mind, a memory, a nature and a
passion which will be implanted and
.-intensified in his children's children.'
No amount of mock solicitude for
his welfare, on the part of British
politicians will assuage the deeply I
seated injury he feels. It will require
generations of Boers i to outlive this
last annihilation by British greed and
In every furrow that he plows in
the bitterness of defeat, he will sow
the seeds of defiance. He will lead
his little child to the new gTaves of
its brethren and lay upon its life the
solemn vow to take up the struggle
for liberty and vengeance, where the
alien laid It down.

Seeing Is believing. A man with

I According to Professor C. F. Mor
but, of the department of geology,
University of Missouri, we are near
ing a time when cement will sup
plant other materials in building.
I Already there are cement walks,
' foundations, fence posts, silos, water
tanks, and even cement buildings,
i Professor Morbut says that the sup
ply of timber will "soon be exhausted
and manufacturers of cement are ex
perimenting to produce a more dura

best grade of lumber on the market.

Mineral resources of the United
States, 1901, now in press, United
States Geological Survey, shows that
the production of Portland cement
in the United States in 1901 was 12,
711,225 barrels, an increase of 4,229,-
205 barrels, or almost 50 per cent
over the productlo nof 1900; It was
valued at $12,632,300; as against ?9,-
280,525 in 1900. The development of
the Portland cement industry in the
United States of late years is quite
remarkable. In 1890 1G works pro
duced over 335.000 barrels; in 1894,
24 works produced over 798,000 bar
rels; in 1899 3G works produced over
5,052,000 barrels; in 1900 60 works
produced over 8,842,000 barrels; in
1901, 50 -works produced over 12,711,
000 barrels. In 1890 each one
of the 1G cement works averaged a
little over 20.000 barrels; In 1901
each one of tho cement works aver
aged over 220,000 barrels for the
year. For the years 1897, 1898 and
1899 and 1900, tho imports of ce
ment into tho United States exceed
ed 2,000,000 barrals annually. In 1891
the imports 'were a little under 940,
000 barrels. This remarkable dispro
portion is explained when we find
that tho percentage has reached from
13.2 per cent in 1891, to 34.7 per cent
In 189G; to 73.9 per cent in 1899; to
79.1 per cent In 1900, and to 96.2 per
cent in 1901. Tho total consumption
of all kinds of cement In the United
States in 1901 was 20,573,538 barrels,
and tho total domestic poductlon of
all kinds of cement was 20,0G8,737
barrels, valued at $15,780,789.
'During 1901, 60 works produced
7,084,823 barrels of natural-rock ce
ment, valued at $3,06G,278, as com
pared with over 8,383,000 barrels pro
duced by G4 works in 1900, and with
ff.868,000 barrels produced by G3
works in 1899.
The production of slag cement In
1901 amounted to 272.G89 barrels, val
ued at $198,151, as compared with
356,601 barrels valued at $274,208 in
Up to January 1, 1902, the total
consumption of all kinds of cement
in tho United States has amounted
to 270,760,382 barrels, of which total
tho natural rock cement furnished

land cement, 14.79 per cent.

It should be noted that Jefferson con
tributed $50 at one time to the Bible
Society for the circulation of the
Scriptures, and had this to say of
the value of tho Gospels.;
"There never was a more pure and
sublime system of morality delivered
to man than is to be found in the
four Evangelists." (1814.)
Contrary to the general belief, Jef
ferson was more a Christian in tho
accepted sense, early In life, than
later. About 1776 ho at least aligns
himself with the Protestants, saying,
"If wo are Protestants, we reject all
tradition and rely on the Scripture
alone." In 1819, he wrote to Ezra
Stiles, "I am of a sect by myself, as
far as I know."
In his "Notes on Religion," (about
177G), there is an implicit affirmation
that Jefferson believed broadly in sal
vation through religious faith. This
Is assumed to bo as much of a fact
as riches through labor and healing
through medicine, from which secu
lar things, however, Jefferson distin
guishes It by tho necessity of freedom
in use and administration. "I may
grow rich by what I am compelled to
follow; I may recover heaJth by med
icines I am compelled to take against
my own judgment; but I cannot bo
saved by a worship I believed and
abhor." Again he says: "God Him
self will not save men against their
own wills." Further on in the same
document he states the same princi
ple affirmatively: "The life and es
sence of religion consists in the eter
nal persuasion or belief of tho mind."
In late life, Jefferson seems to havo
attached lest; Importance to faith and
belief. Works became his test of a
man's righteousness. To Miles King
in 1814 he wrote: "I must ever be
lieve that religion substantially good
which produces an honest life." Two
years later he wrote to 'Mrs. Harri
son Smith: "It is in our lives, and
uot from our words that our religion
must be read.
His last recorded utterance upon
tho sublect of religion is in a letter
to Mrs. Woodward, 1824. It smacks
of the practical statesman ratlier
than of the ethical philosopher. Ho
