road, due in S t Louis st 7 p. m., a
half hour late and running 50 miles

the city limits. The engine ran in

freight train on a siding. The en

It is believed that 20 persons
perished in these coaches and that
40 were injured. Three of the in

Buy Horses in America.
New York, July 4,— The Japanese
government is stated to have prac
tically placed an order for 10,000
selected cavalry horses with a New
York firm which supplied many
cavalry horses to Great Britain dur
ing the Boer War. It is understood
that the order calls for the smallest
type of cavalry horse, of which a
large supply is not readily obtain
able. It is insisted by the Japanese
that the horses shall be delivered at
the rate of 2,000 a month to trans
ports on the Pacific Coast.

Note and Comment
Collier's Weekly, commenting ed
itorially on the lessons we may learn
from the eventful history now mak
ing in the Orient, calls attention to
the practical character of Japanese
philosophy pertaining to the com
mon affairs of life, and especially
such as have to do with physical
sustenance and development. The
burden of thought in this connec
tion of National diet and hygiene, a
subject in which Europeans aud
Americans have of late years be
come much concerned.
latter people, however, this physico-
philosophy of liviDg has advanced
in its geneial effect hut little be
yond the speculative stage; while
with the people of Japan it has
aged to the measure of common use.
Regularity and simplicity of diet;
cleanliness and plenty of exercise
taken ìd the aggregate, are, with us,
things that the doctors talk about
rather than the things we practice.
Not so with the Little Brown Man,
they are among his National habits.
As intimated by the writer in
Collier’s, it is intimated, it is not
necessarily a mooted question if we
should abandon meat* foods and be-
oome vegetarians, as are the Japan
ese; but from them we may learn
that nutrition and not mere pleas
ing of the palate is to be viewed as
she essential gastronomical consid
eration. A people physically strong
may easily become nationally wise,
is an axiom that is now being dem
onstrated in Japan’s conduct of an
armed conflict—end further in the
entire readiness with which she
adapts herself to the higher require
ments of a civilization she is just
exploiting. In this respect the in
habitant of the Island Kingdom is
the tutor and not the pupil. His
philosophy is of a maternal char
acter, but very practical, and not
altogether unpromising of future
supremacy unless it shall be care
fully studied and adopted by others.

An Orphan Defined.
The word “ orphan” occurred in
the Sunday school lesson.
Ida V. Stamps asked if any of the
little boys in the class knew what
an orphan was.
There was no re
sponse. Thinking to help the littlg
fellows search out the right answer,
Miss Stamps, the teacher, said:
“ Why, children, I’m an orphan;
now can’t you tell me what an or
Up went the baud of a little boy.
“ All right, Johnnie,” said the
teacher, “ that’s a good boy. You
tell us what an orphan is.”
“An orphan,” roplied the little
fellow, without the slightest hint of
a smile and with deep earnestness,
“ an orphan is a young lady what
wants to get married and can’t.”—
