"A fair exchange is no robbery." So
the text-books have taught via, and
now another instance, quoted by the
New York Tribune, arises to illustrate
the proverb anew.. An American, well
known for his wealth, receives innu
merable letters asking him to sub
scribe to charities, and often, when
the credentials of the project seem du
bious, he has to refuse.
Not long ago he had a letter from
London, signed by an unfamiliai
name. "Knowing as I do your gener
osity," the stranger wrote, "I have put
you down for a two-hundred-dollar sub
scription to our miners' widows' fund.
Christmas is approaching, and we pro
pose to give a fowl and a Christmas
pudding to each miner's widow, on
The millionaire replied: "Though I
know nothing of you or your fund, I
- respond gladly to the call you make
upon me. I, too, am Interested in a
charity, similar to . yours. It is an
American charity, and since it stands
in need of funds for a Christmas treat
I have not hesitated to put you down
for a subscription of two hundred dol

' MRS. CHARLES W. FAIRBANKS,
Foremost Parliamentarian Among the
Women of America, i
Some women reach high position In
official society by Virtue of their hus
bands' superior gifts and adroitness In
politics. They may grace the places
which they occupy and. make .their
homes favorite spots with the great
men of the land; but the fact remains
that it was the husbands who brought
them to elevated social station. Occa
sionally, however, there Is to be found
In official prominence a man in whose
upward progress ... the. wire has kept
step with him' contributing ability,
tact and even genius which has had a
marked Influence upon the career of
the husband. . Without her he might
have gained but mediocre distinction,
despite the possession of talent;. but by
their combined effort public favor and
eminence were attainable. What his
own merit "could not have accomplish'
ed he achieves by a fortunate domes

Charles Warren Fairbanks, Vice
President of the United States, does
not shine by the reflected light of his
gifted wife. He gained his place as
leader-of the bar of Indiana by virtue
of native genius, finished educatiou,
Industrious habits and a wealth of ac
cumulated learning. This was the lad

knowledge past humiliations and draw
profitable lessons from, them is most
commendable. In the same speech,
however, the President is reported to
have said that "we won on uie-sea"
in 1812 because, of our previous prepa
ration for naval war. , - .
Is not that an example of exactly
what we are warned against? It is
true, that in duels between light-armed
ships viz.,- frigates our navy cover
ed itself with glory, but these com
bats, had little effect beyond showing
that our navy had no superior where
forces were equal. 1 The really decisive
feature , of the naval war . was that
England, by reason of the lack of
fighting units L e., "ships -f . he
line" in our navy, was able to block
ade our coast, to "bottle up" practical
ly all the ships' of our Small navy, to
bring our commerce to a standstill and
to direct as she pleased raids along
our seacoast, such as1 that on Wash
ington. - .
The only naval victories that had
decisive results were, those on Lakes
Erie and Champlain, where the fleets
on each side were improvised. On the
sea, where the real naval strength was
tested, we were overwhelmed no less
than on the land, though the . afore
said preparations did prevent the dis
graceful features of the land warfare.
which were due mainly to our lack of
regular troops. The truly, important
lesson to be drawn from the naval
war is the necessity of a powerful fleet
of fighting ships, which can prevent
the command of our seacoast by an
enemy. ,.: ;' " -;
The speech of the President is in re
freshing contrast to the spread-eagle
oratory habitual to our Congressmen
but he does not avoid the pitfalls
against which, he .warns us and fails
to draw from the war of 1812 what is
perhaps its most salutary lesson. -
