Washington, July 5, 1901.
The Tost Otilee Department has begun
.a fight in which it is clearly right and in
which it will be purported by all the
strength of tho exocadve branch of the
Government, but notwithstanding those
advantages, it luust gt the supwrtof
t:;o press and of public sentiment in
order to win a permanent victory. This
tight is to shut the fake publications out
of the privilege of second-class mail. The
Government pays $o0,(XK),lXl0 a year for
carrying second-class mail, and receives
less than ? 1,000,000 for it. That much
of this loss is duo to abuses which have
c.re;t into the construction of the law
constructions never dreamed of wheu
the law was being enacted is apparent
to everyone who has become at all famil
iar with what constitutes a large propor
tion of second class mail. In fact, from
on investigation which has btcn going
on for mouths, the postal officials have
been convinced that fully one-half of the
matter now mailed as second-class
ehonl J, under a strict and perfectly
proper construction of the law, bo com
pelled to pay as third-class matter. A
new rule for the construction of the law
is to be assued by the Post Office De
partment for the especial purpose of
t-huttingout fate publications. When
it is promulgated, lookout for squeals
from the owners of the fakes and from
uch legitimate publications as can be
wheedled or paid to say that the busi
ness of legitimate publication is being
interfered with. These squeals will be
worked for nil they are worth for their
effect upon Congress, where the fight
will Jeertumly bo carried. Postal offi
cials declare in the most positive terms
that the new construction cf the law
will not injure any legitimate publica
tion, and count upon getting the sup
port of all such.
Capt. L. Craven, who served a? Quar
ivrjnaster of the Thirty-second Volun
teer Infantry in the Philippines, and
who is now visiting Washington, said of
the opportunities offere I young Ameri
cans in tho Philippines: "Manila i-s the
center of a wiile field of opportunities

will within several years be in business

Americans to come to their islands and'
instill new business and commercial
enterprise. In my oflice were four
American boys employed as dorks.

who has just returned from a business

Cuba and Po-to Ilico, wan a.-'ke I what

thought of annexation to the United

conclusion of the n""jliatinris fur tho
purclrtvuof th.i i.-laidi from Denmark
is only a matter of time, lie replied:
"A few wealthy merchants, mostly
Danes, oppose the sale of the island, be
emse tlir.y aro afraid of American enter
prise. The natives of a!! the. inlsuida of
t::e Lew-er Antilles, I find upon special
inquiry, were in favor of annexation.!
They were very anxious, the French, ea

Tho publication of the action of the
Conmiisioner of Patents in suspending
a!! itearint'fi in appeal cases before him
-!f and the Aisis'at Commisniouer :
during July and AugUht, seems to have
f).;?n taken by some to moan that tho
Work of the, entire Patent Office was
su spended. Such is not the cane by any
Means. Tho l-JO esaruiaers of the Pat

of cases without, an appeal being taken

New flsthads of Nature Study.
It is refreshing to note 'that nature
study is becoming mow and more, a
common feature of school and college
work, and also that tho methods nsed
aro somewhat different from those hi
vogue some years ago. Time was when
the study of birds meant shooting them,
or collecting their eggs and nests, iul
when the ardent student if quadrupeds,
insects, reptiles, or any other living
tiling, felt it necessary to pr.ove his love
for his subject by knocking it in the
head, and to nuasara his knowladiie by
the size of Ids collection. Thanks to
the camera and common sense, thinjs
are different now. Tho naturalist has
learned that he can fin I out more about
birds and animals by making friends
with them when alive than by dissect
ing them dead.
At least halt of tho popular books on
nature study which hav appealed In
the last few years have evidently been
the work of tho out-door naturalist. The
lo.-er of nature takes his camera, bis
opera-glass, his text-book and his note
book, and hies him to tho woods or
fields, where ha quietly sits down on
the ground or props hmibelf agiinst a
tree, and keeps very still, it is not his
purpose to interrupt, but to watch tho
boiHekeeping of his friends in fur and
feathers. - I l kaotts that the report of
a gnu or tho smell of blood will effect
ually put a stop to the kind of studying
lie desires to do. It is no practicable
to kill a person and make friends with
him at one ?nd the fame time, and the
rule ho! Is just as goal if tha person is a
squirrel or a robiu.
The nature lover, therefore, U for
hours in his chosen placj, tramps for
miles over woo l-paths or through un
trodden wilderness, not for the sake of
bringing homo a well-filled bag of game,
but in order to store his head with in
teresting information, lie wants to
5n 1 out, perhaps, what the habits of a
certain bird are, and ho v its e:ng at
certain seasons of tho year differs from
the mere twitter heard at other seasons ;
whit it lives on, and how far north it
ranges. Can he discover all these
things by lying in rait fer the bird and
shooting it, or taking it homo to live the
ret of its short life in a cage? Nothing
of the kind ; this is a case in which he,
not the bird, must pay for his knowl
edge. So, like an honest man. ho pays,
and in return learns more not only about
that bird, but about various other crea
tures met in his travels, than the mere
sportsman would know if be hunted a
Old woodsmen, it is true, often know
a great deal of the habits of wild things,
not only from the hunter's, but tho nat
uralist's, point of view; but it it' well
known that they sel lorn hunt for mere
sport, an 1 never kiil more than they
neftd fort'ituil coiisunri'.i )!! or for sale.
One doe3 not find an Adirondack guide
runttiitg amuck in the woods, blazing
away at everything ho Powder
and shot are too precious, for one thing.
Consequently the peo,,te in fur and
feathers, not den rod by hiia for food or
other purposes, soon learn to know him,
and ho understands tfn in. Sometimes
he iif not much of a sportsman in the
ordinary sense of tho term. .And the
men who attend to tho preserving of
game and the care of forests know quite
as much of word;:raft as tli wj who live
by shooting the wild creatures.
