! ni'd colored man was recently ntrostcl In
Waahlngioii nml pronolinceil Insano after a
iiudlciil exiimliiallon. One of tho chief proofs
of his In-.uilij- was Ids stubborn Insistence that
Hie govei iiiuent owed him n living nnd that lie
was entltlul by right to n portion In one of
the l eileral Departineiits.
The occurrence furnishes n lit text for the pen of the
humorist. Yet ns a matter of fact la It not true that a
very large number of white men who arc young, vigorous
nnd presumably c.ip ilile of making n place for themselves
In tin? world nro likewise iHissosacd of this particular form
of lunacy? How many Senators and Congressmen, If they
should Kpenk out frankly, could furnish some Interesting
revelations retarding tho extent and persistency of Uie
Importunity to which they havo been subjected by people
who were convinced Hint they ought to havo n government
Job mid who frankly based their prfcrencc for this sort
of employment on their belief that It was about tno easiest
that could bo found anywhere?
There Is, of course, noUdng dishonorable In seeking n
sulKirdlnate Mjsltloti under the government In some
branches of the public service, owing to Uie gradual Intro
duction of the merit system, there Is more ehanco than
formerly for promotion based on fitness nnd capacity. llut
It Is undoubtedly true that the belief that work for the
government Is usually "an easy Job," Inspires the bulk of
the applicants who annoy members of both houses of Con
gress with their appeals. Yet Is this the way to win gen
uine success? In n task that Is "easy" the kind which the
average healthy young person should look for?
Men who have risen to eminence In trade, Industry and
professional life have not wasted their time In hunting
up places where they would have llttlo to do with com
Kiratlvly small prospect of advancement. They have reso
lutely looked for openings which wcro accompanied by
hard labor and plenty of It; and when they havo secured
such an opening they have usually proved that they had
the right stuff In them by buckling down with energy lo do
their best. rhlladelphla Iiulletln.

expecting great size In all Asiatic Kmplrcs, or of comparing
the area of Japan with that of China, or of Itusila Itself.
So compared, Japan Is. of course, a little place, which looks
on the maps almost Inslgnlllcnnt. Compared, however. In
a more sensible way, with Uie other Island Empire which
has so long been one of tho Great Powers of Uie world,
Japan Is by no means small, lis total area, without count
ing Formosa, Is by twenty-seven thousand square miles
greater than that of the Ilrltlsh Isles, nnd as large a pro
portion of It Is fertile and thickly populated. That popula
tion, again, is forty-four millions, or three millions greater
than that of Hrltnln. six millions greater than that of
France, and nlmost equal to that of Austria-Hungary. If
the word "little," again, refers to strength for war. that
Btrength Is In many respects superior to our own. We
could probably destroy the Japanese fleet, but Uie Japanese
fleet has destroyed that of Russia, and could. If allowance
Is made for position, maintain a contest with tlmt of
France or Uermany which would not be absolutely hopeless.
As regards soldiers, Japan has a conscription, and the
conscription obviously works. Within the last six months
the country has sent out six armies, each nearly equal to
cither of the forces that contended nt Wntcrloo. We
Uiought we had done a great thing when we sent eighty
thousand men to India In 1857, and an extraordinary one
when we transported two hundred thousand men to South
Africa In 1000. llut Japan has transported more than four
hundred thousand men across tho sea, and defied the Itus-
wi ,,,, vnr wagon to
star look to the strength of your bar
slans nt Lin Yang and Port Arthur wlUi armies greater In
the aggregate than that which Napoleon III. mobilized for
tho Invasion of Oermany. Of the quality of those forces it
Is unnecessary to speak. Sailors and soldiers nllko are, In
discipline, In speed of marching, nnd in endurance ot
faUguc, the equals of any Uiat Kurope has produced; while
In their reckless contempt of death Uicy display a apeclal
quality which, as great Itussian ofllcers ndmlt, somcUmes
appals nnd demoralizes their own stubbornly brave men.

ultimate victory? London Spectator.
Love and Work.
DDA.LI8M aa an Interpretation of life, a Tlslon
of ulUmate ends and conditions, has always)
won to Itself Uie ardent, Uie poeUc, and tho
high-minded the great company of scekera
after light and love In every generation, who
rtbel against the hardness and injustice of the
world, hate Its noise and brutality, Its nerco
compcUtlona and Its stolid Indifference to the defeated.
Even In the presenco of the great purpose which runs
through the visible order of things nnd the society In which
men have arranged themselves, and which has come to
light, ns one of tho most spiritual men ot the day lias said.
Just In timo to save some ot Uie best men and women from
despair. It Is hard for the senslUve and aspiring and tender
hearted to bear the sorrows of the world and to sit with a
cheerful spirit while so many losses ravage the homes that
are dear to them and despoil the best fortunes of men.
There are hosta of men and women who go through life
with a noble discontent In their hearts, a sense of loneli
ness and IsolaUon In their souls; they are homoslck for a
world In which men help Instead of smite, bind up Instead
of wound, arc quick to recognize the good lnsetad of eager
to find the evil, stand ready In all crises to rebuild Uie
fallen, ore patient of spirit with Uie weak, love the sinner
while they loathe the sin, are kindly In speech bocause kind'
ly In thought, are indifferent to external conditions because
conditions are Uie happenings of life while tho eoul la Its
great and enduring reality, nre bound together In a vast
conspiracy to cheer, to aid, to give heart and hope, to make
Uie highways of life bloom with spontaneous kindness, nnd
to make Uie lonely world a warm, hospitable, many-win-dowed
home for all who pass this way on Uie Journey of
Men are made happy, not byithe things which surround
them nor by tho things which Uiey take to themselves,
but by Uie no-blo putting forth of the soul In love and work;
Uie two great activities which nre never divorced In the
harmonious and balanced life, the two languages In which
every true Idealist makes confession of his faith and gives
evidence of Its reality. For lore is the ultimate expression
of faith, and without works faith is a vain shadow. The
Criminal Frequency of Railroad Wrecks.
UE frequency nnd frightful fatality of railroad
accidents In this country must sooner or later
bring about determined governmental action
for the protection of Uie traveling public. There,
Is not another country In the world where aa
unnecessarily large a proportion of railroad pas
sengers lose llfo or limb.
The fact) that so many American railroads are composed
of but a single track Is a parUal explanation of this awful
slaughter, but It does not account for everything. In Eng
land, where accidents of- serious proportions are so com
paratively few, railroad precautions for the safety of the
public are prescribed, and supervised, by the Board ot
Trade, and the wholesomeness ot this regulation was rec
ognized by a bill which was Introduced In Congress last
winter, providing for a similar supervision of our roads by
the Interstate Commerce Commission1
The Interstate Commerce Commljjlon is already a use
ful body, but It would bo of larger fne If this new power
were given to It The railroad lnfldence blocked the bill
Just mentioned ot the last session, but this fact should not
deter the vigorous revival of Uie measure. Pittsburg Press.
A Virginia farmer, up among th-
foot-hills of the Iilue Itldge Moun
tains, cleared n new Held nnd pastur
ed Ids cows there, llefore long the ani
mals sickened and one died. Think
ing that perhaps the spring which
bubbled from the rocks In apparent
purity might be tho cause, the farmer
caused Its waters to be analyzed. It
was found that they contained arsenic
In such quantities as to render them
dangerous to man and beast This
discovery, says the Itoston Herald, led
to nn Industry, unique, not only In the
United States, but In the westeru
hemisphere; that is, the mining of ar
senic ores nnd the manufacture of
white arsenic, for tho supply of which
America has hitherto depended en
tirely upon foreign markets.
Arsenslc Is mined In Japan, Italy,
Portugal, Spain, Germany and Eng
land. Its uses aro many. As a poi
son It lias been known from very ear
Ij times. Tho peasant women of Aus
tria consume largo quanUtles of It,
having faith lu Its virtues ns a beau
tiller, and the men of the same region
are addicted to Its use tu the mistaken
belief Unit It Increases their bodily
strength ami endurance.
Arsenic Is a useful mineral. It Is
used in the manufacture ot glass,
white metal, Parts green nnd a great
variety of paints; in printing calico.
In making- toilet 0"P. cosmetics nnd
complexion powders; In tho manufac
ture of fireworks nnd as a constituent
of many alloys. For thew and simi
lar purposes between Uvo and six
thousand tons nro Imported Into the
United States every year. The aver
age value of whlto arsenic may be
placed nt about clghtyllvo dollars a
It was only about n year ago that
the arsenic ore was discovered In Vir
ginia; then the mountain lop round the
present mining town of llrlnton was
nn almost unbroken wilderness. The
story of Its transformation Into a busy
Industrial community Is n good Illus
tration of the pluck and lndomltablo
will to which America owes Its induv
trial supremacy. The mine Is located
at the summit of a mountain, three
thousand feet above the sea-level.
The physical difficulties that had to
lie overcome wero enormous.
The ore body averages twenty-five
to thirty per cent pure arsenic. It Is
found In flssuro veins, cropping out
at the surface and extending Into Uie
earth for an unknown 'dlstanco.
Twenty distinct veins have boen dls.
covered, outcropping for a distance ot
aeven miles, so that tie deposits are
extensive enough to supply the world's
demands for nn Indefinite period.
From Uie time when the ore enters
the crushers until the finished prod
uct reaches the casks It Is untouched
by human hands, It Is carried along
from point to point by automatic ar
rangements through each process of
manufacture. The Impalpable dust
nnd poisonous gases generated are so
dangerous that the atmosphere of the
plant has to be kept pure by artificial
means. As a further precaution tha
works are provided with hot and cold
baths, of which the men are required
to make use as soon as their dally task
At the present Hme the output ts
three tons of white arsenic a day.
When one stops to think of them,
these figures contain some startling
possibilities. The output for four days
would furnish a fatal doso for every
man, woman and child In the United
States. In a few weeks tho plant could
turn out enough arsenic to wipe out
the enUro population ot the globe.
Cousin Who Warn Alwaya Dlacoverldir
Them Wiia Misunderstood.
The "new cousin," as little brother
called her because this was her first
visit to the Barclays, had not made
herself popular. One might have gath
ered the reason from Uie talk that
went on at tho tea table the evening
when Bhe, Lena Martin, was tempo
rnrlry the guest of other cousins in an
ndjolnlng town. Horace Barclay, the
young law student, began It.
"I'm wondering," he said, whimsi
cally, "whether Lena Is busy at this
.moment pointing out to Jim Barclay
how many little ways ho has that re
mind her of mo. She's told me n good
many times, you know, how much I
resemble Jim In nppearanco and char
acter, nnd since he looks like a convict
nnd hasn't nny character, I "
"It doesn't so mluch matter about
Jim and you, "Marian, his elder sister,
broke In, hot with her private griev
ance. "You'ro men, and nobody tjhlnks
nbout men's looks. But Lena keeps
telling me how like I am to that old
miniature of great-grandma and I've
.detested that picture ever since I can
Vemember. I don't think It's the least
like any of our family."
"Lena says I look like a little girl
she knew that died," the younger Bis
ter, nose, murmured, plaintively.
She told me that chicken-coop I
built was Just like one she saw In the
Trlbunel" growled Hoy. "That's
worsen anything she told you others,
cause I didn't copy that chlcken-copp,
I built It out of my own head."
"Can't tell her a story but lfs like
something she heard years ago!" Ma
rian sputtered again. "Can't play any
thing but It reminds here of a piece
her music teacher used to play. To
hear her talk, you'd think she'd read
or heard or seen everything In the
world, or something Just like It except
for tho name."
"Mamma," little brother Interjected.
In real alarm, "because she's our cous
in, do we have to be Just llko her?"
"No, dear," the mother answered,
gently. "But I want you all to realize
that Lena's fault originated lu pure
kindness ot heart
"She means well, but her habit ot
trying to trace resemblances la a dan
gerous one because we all cherish our
own Individuality. There are not many
persons we really wish to resemble, I
think, and when Lena flnde likenesses
offhand, of course she la liable to Iden
tify us with people we don't admire.
"I have never heard your cousin' say
anything that was not Intended to com.
pllment us or to show an Interest In
the t hint's that Interested us. Do Jus
tice to her good Intention. Don't 1ml.
tato her methods; do take pattern by
her generous motive." Youth's Com

Somebody told Mr. Jcnks that red
flannel worn next to the skin would
cure the rheumatism from which he
suffered. So be purchased several acta
of red flannel undergarments. The
clerk assured him that the firm guar
anteed the goods In every particular.
About two weeks later, says the New
York Times, Mr. Jcnks revisited the
shop, sought out tho proprietor and
told his woful story.
"Tho goods are the best In the -house,"
declared the proprietor. "Of
course," ho said, In the reasonable tone
used on unreasonable persons, "ot
courso tho shirts may have shrunk or
faded a little "
"Shrunkl Faded!" bellowed Mr.
Jcnks. "What do you think my wife
said to me when I came down to break
fast yesterday with ono ot them on?"
The proprietor looked bored.
"Well, sir," said the aggrieved
Jenks, "she looked at mo a minute, and
then said, 'What la that little red line
round your neck, John? It Isn't the
baby's string of coral beads, ts It?' "
She Do you suppose, Mr. Pickering,
