ON THE WESTERN PIAZZA.
In I'eiidleton are more than a hund
red old gentlemen, who are living
portraits and whose lives are story
books of wonderful Interest.
Go down the street iimon? ihe
homes In the city, any autumn even
ing, and look at the grey-haired man,
sitting In au easy chair, on the West
ern porch. Perhaps he Is asleep. The
last rays of the sun ar kissing his
brow; the autumn leaves aie falling
at his feet and in his lap. like flakes
of gold. One thin, white lock of hair
is falling1 over his brow. Ills hands
are at rest and he Is at peace wltli
the world. Back across a mingling
drama af triumph and adversity, his
closed 'yes are wandering. It seems
only a step backward to the open gate
of babyhood, anil it Is only a step
forward to that other open gate.'
His sons and daughters are con
tented and happy. His life's work is
a success. The ripened fruit of ex-
perience is ruddy, in the autumn sun
shine of life. He Is waiting for to
morrow, he is- living a monarch,
crowned in achievement and jeweled
with hope- The long story of strug
gle is written and sealed. His land
marks are seen every where about
him, in the industries and enterprises
that he has nourished and builded.
Ills honorary membership In every
social and business circle has long
ago been conferred. No further de
gree of contentment can he added to
his measure. That unfolding charm
of friendship, growing stronger and
deeper, ho loves, to speak of. He is
Just waiting on the broad. Western
piazza. The sunset is beckoning. All
cliards the freedom from pestilence
that Is raging in other parts of the
world; a growth In every industry
that Is within our borders; friendship,
within and without; work for the wil
ling and reward for the worker; con
tentment everywhere, and everywhere
the sunshine of progress; prospects
for the future that surpass, if possi-
' ble, the past. Amid such causes for
gratitude, we are truly thankful.

NOW FOR THE FUTURE.
Since the confusion of jubilant elec
tion reports has passed over. It is
found that the democrats have not'
lost a victory in a national sense.
Democratic states, in a few instances,
have gone republican; democratic
counties have been lost, and congres
sional districts have changed into the
republican line but from a strictly
political point of view, thero is moro
hope than ever. President Roosevelt
is a reformer. He is a young man
imbued with some of the most pro
gressive Ideas of government that
have ever been advocated from the
presidential chair. He is also head
strong, emphatic, persistent and tin
movable in his belief. His ideas of
tarifT revision, reciprocity, control of
the trusts and the repeated belief he
holds in the rights of the masses
being equal to the rights of the
classes, are leading him and his fol
lowing toward a democratic point of
view. The old-lino republicans will
not follow hlra now. In his oxtremo
views, and in this gradual formation
of a new republican doctrine, uuder

the- party today, there Is a hope for

Two thousand fishes in one griddle
cake. Five to ten thousand animals
for a single breakfast.
That is the sort of feast the natives
enjoy on the Islands of the Philip
pines. In Southern Luzon Is a beautiful
mountain lake, called Lake Buhl,
about 1000 feet above the sea. It Is
supposed by the natives to havo no
hottom, and is said to have been
formed by "a volcanic upheaval which
occurred before the Spanish came to
the Archipelago. On that tragic oc
casion, when many human lives were
lost and much property destroyed,
one side of Mount Irlga was blown out
and hills of lava were scattered for
Not long ago Dr. Georgo A. Zeller
found himself In tho neighborhood of
Lake Buhl, and ascertained that there
was in this body of water a queer
kind of fish, only half an Inch long,
which was used by the Filipinos for
eating. Nothing, It appears, Is too
small or Insignificant for tho natives
of those islands to regard as available
for tho table. So Dr. Zeller obtained
some hundreds of the little fishes and
sent them In a bottle to Surgeon Gen
eral Sternberg, at Washington.
Dr. Sternberg forwarded tho bottle
with its contents to tho United States
fish commission, where it was con
sidered a great prize, Inasmuch as
tho fish was declared to be not only
tbo smallest in existence, but tho
most minute vertebrate animal known
to science. It weighs only half a
grain, and half an inch is Its maxi

The fish in question is a kind of
goby, and there Is a suspicion that It
is prnctically extinct for several
months in every year, like certain
animal plants. Meanwhile the eggs,
which are so small that 1200 of them
placed In line are required to measure
one Inch, are Incubating for the pro
duction of tho next generation.
When the little fishes have been
newly caught, by dipping a large
sheet of close web under a school of
them, they are put Into tightly woven
baskets to drain. The natives buy
them eagerly, and the fishermen re
turning from tho morning's voyage
are instantly surrounded by a crowd
of waiting children, who offer In ex
change for them potatoes, rice and
copper pennies. Chicago Record-Her
All tho world's a masquerade,
Fiction upon fiction laid;
Best foot forward, everywhere.
That's tho cloak the maskers wear.
Artificial polish worn
O'er a life all stained and torn;
Falsehood laid with splendid art
O'er the semblance of a heart.
Gloss and sheen of bold deceit
In a mimic virtue meet.
Cold duplicity and skill.
Every trusting impulse kill.

Of a fratricidal law;

From tho old fraternal fount,

'Round yon sunkist summits play,
Hints of some resplendent day.
All tho world, unmasked, Is good;
All Its creed Is brotherhood;
All Us faith is, Justice done
