The mass of humanity are a hopaful proposition and it is proper that such should be the case. The year 1905 has passed into history and we are now look ing into the face of 1906 and guessing what Time has in store for the next twelve months. Many declare the world to be getting better as the years roll by and civilization is presumed to be reaching higher standards. The year just closed saw rati fied the peace negotiations at the close of a bloody war between Russia a-nd Japan. This may be looked upon as either for or against civilization and a better ment of conditions. In thus reckoning this matter we must be governed by the view point. Is Russia getting better? There is still riot and bloodshed through out the great empire. At pres ent there is no evidence that conditions are better than they were in Russia last year and one can only hope that after a reign of butchery the shackles may be broken and liberty and enlight ment prevail to such a degree that the evil days leading to the brighter ones may be forgotten. In the way of sciences we are certainly making rapid progress, also in che field occupied by our inventive geniuses. Only a day or two ago a party was commis sioned to build an air-ship for an exploration of the north pole and the territory surrounding it. ' It may be cited in this connection that we are not much closer the pole now than we were 100 years ago, but it is not improbable that we, many of us, will live to note the arrival of some ad venturer at the pole and may be wrap the stars and stripes about it and perch an eagle on the top In the United States during 1905 there was less lynching that in former years 66 men lynched. Surely here is evi aence tnat we are gaming in goodness in this country, but we are not entitled to boast until we can point to a clean record in this, regard. Can we make the year '06 better than its prede cessor? We can if we vrill so let us do it. PA? HEED. Lafayette Young has just re turned from a trip around the world, having been a member of the excursion party to the Philip pines; but instead of returning eastward he kept on to the west ward and landed in New York. Of the absence of our flag every where our traveler went he could not help remarking: U id it ekainii and a humiliation to know that this j;reac republic ia not rep-re-fnled ou the sea. The traveler around the world practically travels un der nn alien flag from start 'o finish. Yet !h- in.iney which t-upports am: makes (.-i.-sib'e thpe German and ng-llt-i :ins iift'.vtcn !!ii;w and the Vi-iuti S:.itin is American money. The tic mans ::ud ni:w i-.:eer a; o b-tv.ih lt!n1 tin:. Tiiev tra.lt- away f ' tln-ir protvec English take our money ;. cmi :i try in tno same .i.tTthcs" things should tiit-ir !-::ij? to bulldoze n the I iHte-i Seated and ..; c etuvth e. I". Electing seriously on these and other facts, and in view of the talked of, perhaps impend ing. German treaty, Mr. Young clearly perceives the only danger menacing our country. He cau tions our government, which seems to have no true conception of the use of shipping, as follows: Btfore the American people cut down oar turi:T rates a-! invite Germany and Great Britain to fig.t with U3 for our twn trade which we no. ' .v h-y ought to hv-'ud an American i h.int marine and officer it with a;:gre.ive Americans, who will talk for the Laited States in every clime and under every sky. Until we are thus prepared to go into the com mercial battle with Germany and Great Britain on the sea we had better ke"n what we h ve (ou the Laid) a.d which under present circumstances they can not rob as of. . . . How nnwise it would be to uce our tariff duties and invite a commercial war (in our own country) bafore building ships and pre paring for the t-or.flict. Alexander Hamilton said : ' 'To preserve the balance of trade in favor of a nation ought to be a leading aim of its policy." One way of doing this is by a ship ping policy, the vessels of a na tion doing all the carrying be longing to it. 'Another way is by an industrial policy that will secure to 'a nation its home market, the full employment of its people, diversification of trades and the raising, produc tion and fabrication of all its necessities. The proper reenr 1 J J? 5 iauon oi its commerce will en able any nation thus to stand on its own bottom and become rich. T" ? i t . i.i .DismarcK understood tne sci ence of modern government, The founders of our own govern ment knew their own business also, but we have fallen on evil times, the years passing with public men in doubt of the true principles of statesmanship. We have but a single s ring to our bow. Snap that and before we can recover the loss dread dis aster may befall our nation. Bismarck took care ' to increase and develop the German marine ii i - . . . as wen as to protect trie in dustries of his country by a tariff on importations. Both ways of maintaining a balance of trade is in use in Germany. Name over the great men we have had in the last forty years and see if one can be mentioned who has paid any attention to the maxim of Hamilton to maintain a bal ance of our trade. Our shipping has gone to the dogs. We have had no Madison, much less Bismarck. Now, impair but slightly the protection of the tariff and down goes our house of cards. Copy Britain, we are told; liberalize the tariff and be a nation among nations. But these shallowpates never say, 'copy Britain," increase the marine, r-"v a carry ou per cent oi our own commerce, be independent on the ocean as on land. Oh, no; that would be too English, you know. The British can do our transportation cheaper than we can ourselves! Ex. Pleasant and Most Effective. T J. Chambers, Ed.

IT DRAWS HARD On a woman's vitality to do work for which she is unfitted, and we wonder how some of the women of our land live through a single season of pleasure or dissipation. They will say with tears in their eyes, when they mention the sub- iect at all, "it is a nara VulL" that with pain, weak ness and weariness they are "almost dragged out." Many, in this con alcoholic stimulants dition, and invisrorants " the after effects of which are very injurious. Dr. R. V. Pierce, forty years, ago found that women were being mistreated through ignorance or carelessness and determined to devote his life and energies to their relief. Having found the cause of their suf fering, he next smight for the means of relief, and found in Xature,s laboratory the earth, certain roots which had re markable and valuable medicinal virtues fof the cure of these ailments. Using chemically pure glycerine, of proper strength instead of alcohol,- he prepared extracts of these, and the result was so satisfactory that the combina tion became his "Favorite Prescription." The roots used are: Lady's Slipper root, Black Cohosh root. Unicorn root. Blue Cohosh root and Golden Seal root. The world knows it as Dr. Pierce's Favor ite Prescription, which has the won derful and unparalleled record of a half million of cures in the last forty years. Write to Dr. Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y., for advice, given without charge. "I am grlad to be able to testify as to the merits of Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription for the many ills that women suffer with," writes Miss Gertrude Mitchell (President Young Ladies' Christian Endeavor Society), 43 Columbia Street.
