ARROGANCE AND SERVILITY.
Attitude of British Officer and Soldier
Toward Kach Other.
"The cabman and conductor would
be kind to you, but they wonld not be
respectful," quotes Mr. Howells In his
recent reminiscences of James Busseil
Lowell, in mentioning the little ways
in which MrXowell, ,on his retuin
from the "comfortably padded environ
ment" of London, found America less
comfortable than the country he bad
left . ' : -
No doubt, kindness In deed Is more
than respectfulness in word. Neverthe
less, Mr. Lowell was not thepnly Amer
ican who, returning from England, has
missed the sruootauess, ease and pleas

fairs of life with which English re
spectfulness has much to do. At Its
best, it is the good manners of the un
educated; at its worst, it degeneiates
One of the many unexpected discus
sions arising from the South African
war touches this matter In its military
aspect The ready deference of the un
educated English private toward his
officers has induced In some of the offi

personal superiority. But the Colonial
soldiers, although obedient and well
drilled, and although they fully accept
their officers' rights to command them,
regard the right as professional only.
They do not consider that It Implies a
They will not endure bullying or
swaggering or slanging, and they re
sent superciliousness. They are, in
short, like our American soldiers, re
spectful and self -respectful; and the re
luctant authorities have found that In
stead of greater Independence Impair
ing their usefulness, their greater init
iative has made them more valuable
than the machine-like, home-trained
Tommy Atkinses. .
As a result there Is a growing opin
ion that England's semjpaternal, semi
contemptuous attitude toward her pri
vate soldiers, which has cheerily tick
eted them the world .over as "absent
minded beggars," plucky but Irrespon
sible, Is neither wise nor fair. Tommy
himself accepted it but It was not good
for him; now his spirited Colonial cous

. From The Tribune, Wtbiter City, la. .""
Physicians are often puzzled by an
ailment that does hot yield to the usual
remedies, patients are caused much
suffering and expense while experi
ments are being tried upon them, when
in many cases the' seat of the disorder
is in the blood. If this vital fluid is
impoverished disease is sure to follow.
Build up the blood, the diseased part
is nourished and stiengtbened, and
health results. This is the simple his.
tory of what often appears to be a com
plicated case. Mr. Ezra Edwards, the
well-known merchant of Webster City,'
Iowa, passed through ' suon an exper
ience. He says; ,
- "I have always "believed that my
trouble was due to the impoverished
condition of my blood. , About tour
yaara ago my ankles began to swell and
cause me great pain. 1 am quite heavy
and as I was on my feet constantly I
suffered intensely. Finally the swell
ing became so bad that I could not

me but did not effect a cure. .

GOLD HOARDED BY MISERS.
Millions of Yellow Coin Disappear An
- stnallT from Circulation.
The world Is full of millions and mill
ions of long-lost sovereigns. A com
petent authority has Just completed
some investigations which, he declares,
show that in three years the Bank of
England has lost trace of no fewer
than' 20,000,000 golden coins of the
realm. This wholesale disappearance
of the elusive sovereign has been going
on for years. A river of gold baa
flowed unceasingly from Threadneedle
street to all parts of the world, but it
has come back only as a tiny yellow
streamlet What has become of the
surplus In Its wanderings? "Misers" is
the unpoetlcal explanation for a great
.part of this disappearance. There still
exist In this and other countries people
who are unbuslness-Uke enough to
hoard up gold and keep it lying idle
by them for the sole pleasure of know
ing it is there and occasionally count
ing It . , .-- .. .
'The people of India appear to be par
ticularly addicted to a habit that is
more reminiscent of medieval times
than of an age when money is gener
ally saved so thatmore can be made
with it In the regency of Bombay It
is estimated that 12,000,000 golden sov
ereigns are boarded. If tbat is tm? rec
ord of Bombay alone, what is the full
tale for the whole country? China, too,
absorbs a vast amount of gold that
never sees the light again. As a matter
of fact, while the whole world la
searching for and trying to . acquire
gold, a goodly part of It appears to be
engaged In the less thrilling pastime
of hiding It away. .
Great Britain is not guiltless of this
commercial sin. Dotted all over the
kingdom are graveyards of gold which,
if discovered and opened, might restore
to circulation a' vast amount of wealth
at present absolutely useless. At a
spot about two miles from Hereford

the apparently tottering fabric of the
Turkish empire. It makes the half -fed,
half-clother soldier ready to endure
every privatiori,'and prevents the cor
