The hepartmeiit of State has not been
informed of the reported purpose of the
Chinese government to retaliate upon
the I'liited Stales, evidenced hy ,e re
ported prohibition of the purchase, use
or Male of American kerosene in the prov
ince of Ainov. liven if there bun been
sin b a prohibition, it is not believed ut
Ihe department thai it can be ri earded
as a measure adopted in a spirit of retal
iation, hut rather as an exhibition of the
extremely conservative character of the
Chinese, whose resistance to such an in
novation as the use of kerosene may
have been sireii'-thened bv some recent
casualties. Moreover, it is a fact that a
mere Viceroy of a province would scar
Iv be authorized to institute a policy of
retaliation, which would rather lie initi
ated by the imperial government itself.
Secretary Smith was aded Ihe other
day w hitt would be Ihe probable policy
of the Interior 1'epaitmcnt in reference
to the approval of lists of .Northern ra
il! lands under the grant w hich was
not earned ill the time specilied, but vet
to which the company assumes title. The
Secretary seemed to bi of the opinion
that, the lauds having been earned, the
company would undoubtedly be entitled
to them, ami that in the approval of the
lists, unless the statutes Ktid that thev
old not be approved if not earned in
tune, he supposed that hi! should not
take that oiieslion into consideration,
lie intended to follow the law, no mat ter
what the asMimption might be of parties
interested, lie llddeil : "There is llo
doubt that the building of thi! road was
a great improvement. It has been of
benelit to the country, mid the gov
ernment has had the advantage of sell
ing its lands, and the mini try has been
settled and developed. Of course, the
road has been built and Ihe lands have
been earned. I shall look into the law
on .lie subject before making approval,
and smtll act on the law, whatever it is."
It was suggested that quite a large party
in Congress was anxious to forfeit these
lands. TheSecrelary said that he had
heard of it, but, lhat he would have to
follow Ihe law Congress had enacted
rather than anything that may be in
prospect. The probabilities are that the
lists will be approved ami any efforts
made to forfeit the lauds w ill be defeated
by the Ueiuocratic administration, as it
seems to be regarded that the road, even
if it did not complete its line in the time
specilied, made every ellbrt to do so, and
its intention was amply shown from the
fact that the road was really built.

Much-needed money is now flowing
into the treasury of the exposition as a
result of the largely increased attendance
of visitors. No one welcomes tho change
more than Treasurer Seeburger, whose
position since May 1 lias not been an
enviable one. The exposition has heen
short of ready money to liquidate its ob
ligations to contractors and employes,
and it is not out of tho woods yet by "any
means. Bank and commercial failures
in that region and tho panicky feeling
among savings-bank depositors, which
lias just subsided, have made it impos
sible for the exposition corporation to
borrow any large sum of money, and the
directors liave stuck manfully to the pay-as-you-go
policy, having conlidenco in a
speedy and permanent change in the
number of paid admissions. The 100,
000 mark has been passed at the gates
HCTeral times, and is accepted as an in
dication of an era of prosperity and a
plentitudo of cush to pay oil' all out
standing bills. There is a standing order
at tho I'liiance department for Auditor
Ackernian to hold all vouchers for money

his ollice until there is money to spare
in tho treasury for the payment of it.
It means that' only March" bills have
been paid on contract work, but tho em

A Censorship of the Theater.
The laws of political and ecclesiastical
censure had come again into force, and we
actors bad to contend with very serious dif
ficulties in observing the innumerable eras

the censors made in our lines.
Tlie colors green, white and red were pro
hibited. Yellow and black and yellow and
white were also forbidden. Flowers thrown
on the stage must not show any of those
colors prominently, and if it chanced that
one actress had white and green in her
dress, another w ho wore red ribbons must
not come near her. If we transgressed, we
were not punished with simple warnings,
but with bo many days of arrest, and with
fines which varied in amount according to
the gravity of the offense.

me a bill, and the half dollar, which I had
saved, went back in the change. He
laughed when he saw it and said he would
keep it to remember his friend, the conduc
tor, by. I did not see him for several
months. Then he showed up again and
told me he had been to San Francisco. He
carried the half dollar all the way and
started ,to spend it several times, but did
not, and kept it for good luck. 'Here it is
now,' he said, as he showed it to me, 'and
it has traveled twice across the continent
since you laid eyes on it last.' So much,
you see, for one half dollar's history, and
only a few months of it at that. Bridget

The Best Way to Avoid Colds.
How long, oh, Lord! how long before
people will learn that the person who
bundles himself or herself up in heavy
clothing and thick bandages to escape colds
and kindred inconveniences is the person
who is most likely to catch cold and be
troubled generally by the things that it is
attempted to escape? In winter one often
sees the foolish young man who won't go
into the cold air unless his neck is muffled
in a silk kerchief or shielded from the
wind by the turned up coat collar. And
that person always has a cold. Just about
this timeof the year, when colds are plenti
ful enough, you'll notice that the people
who catch them are the people who are
forever exhibiting the utmost anxiety that
they will catch them, and adopting elabo
rate precautions against the dread disorder.
Well, here is something that is true;
The way to keep colds off is to strengthen
those parts that are usually the seats of
disturbance, and the way to strengthen
those parts is by exposure. That sounds
like bad advice, but it isn't. Don't be
afraid to let the wind get a good crack at
you, and let It strike often, and you'll not
nave so many colds as the fellow that's al
ways muffled. Interview in St. Louis
